Mr. Soule's Appoinment.
The New-York Tribune has the follow-
ing in reference to the appoininent of Mr.
Soule as Minister to Spain :
We are a little surprised at the intelli
gence brought to us last night•by tele
graph that Mr. Soule has been appointed
Minister to the Court of Madrid, notwith
standing our Washington correspondents
some days since predicted the appointment.
It has been 9upposed that Louisiana would
be ally tw first grads 'nd
not be allowed two sgt missions,ant.
when Mr. Slidell was appointed to Central
America, it was reckoned to settle Mr.
Soule's prospects in the diplomatic line.
Another reason for the supposition that
Mr. Soule would not receive the mission
particularly, is, that it was applied for by
a distinguished legal gentleman of Louisi
ana, who came to Washington at Mr.
Soule's suggestion, and with a promise
from him, Mr. S., that he would render
the aforesaid gentleman all the needed aid
to obtain any position he desired. When it
transpired, some days ago, that Mr. Soule
was himself a candidate fur the mission, he
was applied to promptly by the gentleman
in question to know if it were so, and if he
bad been brought to Washington on a wild
goose chase. To this Mr. Soule replied
that he would not accept the Spanish mis
sion, except upon one condition, and that
condition be did not suppose the Adminis
tration would grant. Upon being ques
tioned as to what it was, be replied that it
was that he should have unlimited powers
for the purchase of Cuba.
Important from New Mexico,
NEW ORLEANS, April 20.—The Pica
yune has received late and highly impor
tant intelligence from New Mexico. The
accounts state that Gov. Lane had issued a
proclamation claiming Mecilla Valley (?) as
a portion of the American territory. Tee
Governor asserts that this Valley was left
out by the neglect of Commissioner Barlot,
and he had, therefore, given ordert to Col.
Summer to proceed to the spot with an
armed force and secure it.
Col. Summer, however, it is stated, had
refused to obey his instructions. In the
mean time, the Mexican authorities receiv
ed notice of what was on foot,and immediate
ly sent a body of several hundred soldiers,
who were commanded to resist, at any sac
rifice, all attempts to seize the valley,
which the Government of Mexico looks
upon as a p)rtion of its own possessions.
When the above accounts left, the most
intense excitement prevailed, and bloody
work was anticipated. [This is very
