§ Mr. FELL
asked what British men-of-war are now in the West Indian waters; and if any ship is now at Vera Cruz or any other Mexican harbour?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The "Melpomene" and "Scylla" are in West Indian waters. The "Melpomene" is the nearest ship to Mexico on the eastern side being on the coast of Honduras. The "Kent" left Acapulo on the western coast of Mexico, on the 17th instant.
