The "Poinsette" U. S. War Steamer, entered this Harbour,
on the 7th Instant, on her way from Vera Cruz to New Orleans,
bearing it was said, the refusal of Mexico to entertain the over-
tures for "Annexation" made by the United States. She went
to Sea again on the following day.
The United States Sloop of War, "Vincennes," mentioned in
myv last, left her Anchorage in Galveston Roads about the first of
this Month, but returned in a few days, and was joined by the
"Somers," United States Brig of War, on the 5th Instant. To
these was speedly added the new War Steamer called the "Union."
-On the 9th Instant, the three vessels put to Sea, with the inten-
tion, if rumours might be credited, of appearing before Vera Cruz.

trading post, to which Mexican Contrabandists resort for the pur-
pose of Smuggling good [s] across the Rio Grande.
