MORE FILLIBUSTERS [FILIBUSTERS]. – A steamer left New Orleans on the 24th ult., with a large party of fillibusters to join Walker in Nicaragua. The steamer was pursued and stopped by the U. S. Marshal and two hundred of the men taken back to the city.
The San Francisco Sun of the 5th ult., says that an expedition of 500 men were to sail on that day to join Gen. Walker in Nicaragua. The Sun says that Walker designs to extend his conquests to Southern Mexico, and that such reinforcements, if continued, will enable him to do so.
