The last news actually received from Oporto was so discouraging

for the cause of the Pedroites, that the worst reports and surmises have been in circulation during the week respecting their pro- spects. The Times of Tuesday professed to have received the most alarming news from Oporto ; but it appears to have been premature; and is said, indeed, to have been a mere stock jobbing report, got up in order to help off a Miguelite loan, which had been "blown upon" in the market. There is, however, but one opinion as to the perilous situation of PEDRO. But on the other hand, MIGUEL is said to be in nearly as bad a position among his mutinous and sickly troops.
