Mr. Hovey to Mr. Seward.

No. 114.]

Sir: On the 22d instant General Pedro Diez Canseco arrived at this city, and immediately proceeded to take charge of the government. On the 25th the new cabinet was organized as follows: Minister of foreign affairs, Don Juan M. Polar; minister of interior, Don Antonio Arenas; minister of finance and president of the council, Don J. Luis Gomez Sanchez; minister of justice, Don Bernardo Munoz; minister of war and marine, General Fernando Alvizuri.

I have not yet been informed officially of the existence of this cabinet.

The country appears to be tranquil, and, as well as can be learned of the public feeling, it seems to be in favor of the new order of things.

I have the honor to be, with great respect, your obedient servant,


Hon. William H. Seward, Secretary of State, Washington, D. C.
