[From the New Orleans Picayune, Feb 19 ] We recur to-day to the eubject of Mexican affairs,with no hopea of interesting our reader*; bat there are ohvloua considerutiena which impart conaeqnenco to whatever ia now going on in Mexico, whan at any other time and under differmit relatione in the United State*, the same proceedings would be passed over by us as dull and unimportant. In all the papers we have examined we see no mention of any puclic action of Congress upon eur propositions lor i>eace, other than referring to them On the contrary, it appears from their proceedings of the 31st ult. that the committee to whom our overtures were long since referred had not then reported. The subject came up on the surgestion of Senor (Jamboa, that the Mini3ter of Foreign A Fairs should reply to "the imputations, falsehoods and injuries donn to >he Mexicans," contained in tho message of the President of the United States. Senor Pacheco thought it the duty o( the administration rather than Congress to manage this matter; that it was beneath the dignity of Congress to enter into a newspaper discussion ol their wrongs; that their injuries were to be redressed rather by arms and victories than by the pen; and that thore was no other escape for their republic from the depths of disgrace. Besides, he thought enough had already been written of tbe justice of their causo. Senor R.ejon spoke next, and suggested that if it was proper to reply at all to the message of President Polk, the present was not the moment. A more favorable opportunity would be presented when the committee to whom the Amerioan overture* were referred should make their rejiort. In repelling these overture* the committee might show to the world that the United States, not Mexico, had been the aggressors. Honor Pscheco rejoined in a hostile strain, intimating that whatever might he the opinion of the committee aa to replying to Mr Polk, they could not report in favor of accepting overtures for peace, becauso the last degree of ignominy would be to outer into such a treaty as could now he made -the termi would necoisarily be most de u'i numunut iur mniCHua llejon rejoined, expressing himielf much of the opinion of tho former speaker na to peace. It could not he made until the whole nation should call for it. We would it-ipect such an opinion, hut would always reprobate uch conduct. Ilia design was to suggest, not that the committee should repott agreeably to thus or that opinion or instruction, but that in making their, report the committee should givo to it tho form of a manifesto, justifying the conductor Mexico in tho war forced upon her by United Htutos aggression. Henor Otero, a member of the committee, closed the discussion by remarking that there waro various documents before the committee, besides tha overtures ef the United State*. That tho committee agreeing in regard to Texas and the war, had already 1 ibored upon the subject, but had not yet been able to corns to a determination upon all the pointi submitted to them. That in order to make their report, they thought It necessary to obtain some further </?(<i, for which they had applied to the proper department; and that as soon us they had received thein.they would prepare their report, by winch Congress would see that the committeo had not looked with indifference at this delicnto and interesting buciness. The suggestion of Honor Uamboa was not, therefore. adopted, nor do we iiud any fuither mention ol the subject in our papers. Among the passengers who came over from VeraCrur. on tha Medway to Havana, was U. Ignacio Cuinplido, at one time the editor of the former celehratod Mexican journal, El Sigln XIX. The high character of th i' paper for political ability, enlightened views end liberality of sentiment, ami its thorough nationality, will be u passport for HenorCumplido wherever be may go. Wo learn that ho proposes visiting the United states. Krom advices receivod by L* Putria irom Tampico, it wonld appear, as we learn from the Dflta, that mi action occurred at Chihuahua on the :tlst of December. This is doubtless an error. The action alluded to is moro probably that near K1 Paso, mentioned by us yesterday, tho news of which came by Chihuahua, hotter* Irom tho latter city, dated the id ol January, are published in the Mexican paper* Up to that time there had been no tight in the immediate vicinity ol that city, which still icmained in tho possession ot the Mexicans Our troops filtered K1 I'nio oil the '27th of Bocember, and there hail not been time lor them to reach Chihuahua up to the lateit advice* thence. In ?ome Mexican papers of on earlier (Into than thane which report the fight noai El I'uso, wo nee mentioned the advance of Inevornl ho<iio?of Ameiiran troop* from Sjntf Ka?no one exceeding 400 in ntimiier- and all directing their inarch by diriment route* to El Pa?o, and thence to Chihuahua. That thi* city will fall, ami probably without any further resistance. we think altogether probable. We fully anticipate that the next arrival will bring us information to thi* effect. II ? >, it would exhibitin a more glaring light the lolly of the original expedition under Gen. Wool. In our lant we apoke of the deatitution of the troop* at Han Lui* Poto?i.

If this picture of Santa Anna a need is hardly consistent with our former representations of his gambling operations on the largest scale, the reader will please recall to mind that during the same man's exile in llatdna, when in the enjoyment of his princely income, he was a continual suppliant to the Mexican Government for aid to supply his urgent necessities. Anuy Hardin's hor?e nover was a greater bore to our Congress than were S?ntn Anna's wants to the Congro?? of Mexico. |T Although letters of the 30th ultimo from Hun Luis, declared confidently that the army, wi'h Santa Anna nt its h sad, would move the next morning in some direction, thero were those in Vera Cruz who suspected tbnt the capital was thair deatination, rather than Tulaor Mslt llo burely tha forty or Ally thouaand dollara they have obtained cannot laat them long.

A paper says that the enlistment of troops to form the ; command of (Jen La Vega, was going on rapidly in the upper country. We And in the Loroviotar an energetic appeal to the government to provide money to buy provisions for the troops in Vera Cruz and the castle of San Juan It enforces its appeal by declaring that during the month of December last, officers ef companies were compelled to go without food u whole day, and first break their last at night , others had been forced to seek their discharge because they could not obtain the sustenance necessary for them ; mil others again wero actually ill from the pangs of hunger. We have a letter, which reached us only yesterday, dated as far back as the 17th ultimo, confirming what we said yesterday of the short supply of provisions in the castle. And the waut of arms at Veru Cruz was felt almost as much as want of food. Kor some : time they have been organizing a national guard in Vera t t'.ruz. and up to the middle of January they had nearly 14,(100 men enrolled, hut bed no means of arming them In Hue, the numbers wiio come forward for the defence of the place, uctually weaken its capacity to rasist attack. A few thousand well appointed and well supplied troops would be far more efficient, were all the rolunte? rs sent off to subsist in some other part of the country. El Rrpuilicano, of the city of Mexico, attributes the resignation of the recent ministry to the difficulty which they found in procuring means to carry on the government by help of the law authorizing the seizure of church property. Vice President Karins at last found himself abandoned altogether by hislconititutlonal advi t era, and on the 'JSth ,of January he appeared before Congress by a clerk, or higher offi :ial, named previaionally lor this express purpose, and avowed to them that he had not besn able to procure a cent by means of the law, and only hoped to do ae when it should be modified in the manner he then suggeated The modifications suggested limit the application of the funds which may he obtained to the expenses of the wer ; regulate the mode of payment for church property?how much must be paid in cash and how much may be received in government stocks ; they direct the utmost economy iu making the negotiations, and declare that in case of exoeeding the powers entrusted to him, the minister who maneges the negotiation shall be personally and exclusively responsible The most objectionable feature in the government suggestion touches the rate at which it desires power to sell church property. It asks to be allowed to sell such property as low ui lorty per cent, on iu value, of which twenty per cent, must be paid incaih, anJ the other twenty per coot, may be paid in government securities. Inasmuch ae govermnont securities can be bought for live cents in tho dollar and under, the reader will see that should thoso modifications become a law, the Administration would in fact be authorized to raise money by stilling church property at an enormous sacrifice?a saulifleo which would require the bulk of their wealth to raise filteen millions. Vet ruinous as this measure would i I s, it seems to be understood that Hejen and others had accepted office with a view te carry it through. Tho I opposition in and out of Congress are more clamorous ngainst the new proposition than the first law. Instead ! ot being less burdensome, it is, they say, vastly more so, I inasmuch as the first law could in no way be executed, hut the cupidity ot usurer* would be tempted by the ' adoption of the proposed amendments, (.'engross was j occupied with this scheme at our luat advices. The | lavorlte substitute of tho opposition fur it, was a direct property tax ot four doUars in a thousand upon private lortunes, and six dollar* upon the property of corpora- 1 tions. I What the result may be, we are unable to say, but | judging from tbn lone of the press, we should think the enforcement ot the plans of Farias and Rejon would inevitably tend to civil convulsions. Indeed, upon the first publication of the law authorizing any meddling with < hurch property, a move was made to apaet the exiatiug order ol things on the part ol some of the clergy, but it failed tor tho want ot a leader. We have aeeii a letter from Havana which says this party offerod to put lien, l.a Vega at the head of affairs, but that officer was too prudent, and preferred to accept the command iu Vera Cruz.
