Highly Important from Mexico.
CAPTURE OF THE CITY OF GUADALAJARA BY GEN. OSOLLO - THE JUAREZ GOVERNMENT TAKEN PRISONERS.
NEW ORLEANS, Saturday, April 10.
The steamship Tennessee, from Vera Cruz, 7th inst., is coming up the river.
She brings intelligence of the highest importance from Mexico.
General OSOLLO, acting in behalf of the Zulongo Government, had taken the City of Guadalajara, capturing the entire Government of JUAREZ.
JUAREZ and his officers were permitted to leave the country.
OSOLLO was on his way to the City of Mexico, and would probably be declared President of the Republic.
Vera Cruz still holds out for the JUAREZ or Constitutionalist party.
The city of Tampico was besieged by Gen. GARZA.
