    By way of Havana we have advices from Vera Cruz to the 5th inst.

    The dates from Puebla and City of Mexico are to the 2d inst.

    A letter dated Puebla, Nov. 2 states: Although in great haste, I will tell you that one thousand men have this day left this city for Mexico, taking with them seven guns. On their way they have pronounced, and are now marching on Tiascala.

    MIRAMON is no longer President. ROBLES has taken his place. MIRAMON left the city last evening, taking with him almost all the troops that were there.

    Letters from Mexico tell us that Guadalajara was taken on the 23d, after a furious assault.

    The alarm in the capital was great.

    A large number of soldiers have left the city in pursuit of the thousand who have pronounced; but it is too late.

    It is believed the few men remaining in the capital will pronounce against MIRAMON in favor of ROBLES.

    On the 1st inst. MIRAMON was expected to leave Mexico the next day. All his men have passed to Guadalupe.

    The object of his expedition is unknown. Some think he is going to Vera Cruz, others that he will join MARQUEZ, again others that he marches towards Morelin, and another party that it is his intention to embark at Tepic.

    It was also believed ROBLES would remain substitute, notwithstanding the opposition of Gen. CORAM.

    M.M. PACHECO and the Representative of Prussia were to leave shortly for Jalapa.

    The new French Minister, M. DE SALIGNY, was expected with great authority.

    The Havana Diario de la Marina endeavors to cast disbelief on this intelligence in the following terms:

    "The news we published this morning from Mexico was copied from the Trait d' Union, without affirming it was true, and hoping that the Extraordinary, which was to leave Mexico on the evening of the 3d, would bring a confirmation of the news.

    The Progreso, of Vera Cruz, of the 7th, says nothing on the subject. The Extraordinary which ought to have arrived on the 6th, had not arrived on the 7th.

    The Progreso publishes a part of the sentences for the capture of the Spanish bark Maria Concepcion."
