Dec 9, 1H-W). General de la Vega md luite. arrived her* on the 4th ioat, from New Orleans, on board the Ma*7 Ann Jonns lie intends embarking in the Britiah itei mer for Vera Cruz, to leave tomorrow or next day. He i? not so much of a ' lion" in Havana, aa be was in the Uniud States, and peihaps he secretly regrets having been liberated. Don Buenaventura Aranje, a captain in the Mexican navy, is also here; he haa with him 300 patents and letters of citizenihip, for those who msy be desirous oi privateering under the Mexican flag. The pri.e the captain has pat on the Jnogo, or set complete, is $1000; but a4 yet, 1 believe he has not been able to dispose i>f a single one, notwithstanding he himself has stated that i he nad disposed of five. General O'Donnell has openly j declared to Ueneral Campbell, that he will shoot the very first Spaniard, whom he flnds aiding or tilting out a privateer, in any of the ports of Cuba Oil the 7th inst, the British .steamer Clydo arrived from Vera C ruz, from whence she sailed on the morning ot the 3d inst. and brings dates from the city of Meiico. up to tbe J9'It ult.; and Vera Cmz, to the hour of her de|?rt?re. SanlS Inns was in the neivlihnrhnnd nf Sin T.nla Pa Umi with in army of 'ii 000 men, and was expecting reof Ave thousand more. These troops are k jm twothirds regular soldiers, and one-third militia, b*4iy armed. clothod and fed; it is said many of them are alaiost naked, having nothing but a blanket The election* hud gone somewhat against th Sat.ta Anna party, and tfcere is probability thut another revolution would shortly break out. The Clyde brought only $160,040 specie to this place, and twenty passengers. She reports the louof the U. 8 steamer Xeptuuo, on Tampico bar; also another ateamer, the name oi which is not mentioned, is supi>osed to have foundered at sea, on her passage from Matamoras to Tampico, with a regiment of troops on board. An Knglish gentleman who came passenger in the Clyde, left Maxatlan, on the Pacific, oil the 8th alt. The U S ship Cyane was blockading Mazatlan, at the time this gentleman left; she had takon several coasting schooners, and run other* on shore at and near Mazatlan, about the first ult; one of which the Mexicans attempted to defend in seme armed boats and launches, but were attacked by the boats of tho Cyane, and notwithataudfeg their superior numbers, they were deieated, alter having six killed, and seven wounded The Cyane had a slight engagement also at Uuaymas, the particulars of which 1 was not able to obtain. Lower California haa been taken possession of by our naval forces. Mr. Bolton, acting consul of the United States at Mazatlan, with all the other American citizens at Mszatlan, had gone over to La Paz, where they were under the American flag, and where the people wer? well disposed towarda them. The Mexican Government had issued orders for a forced loan of $-2 000,000, to supply tfae immediate wanta of the troops Foreigners were exempted irom the list. I have read many .private letters written in different parts of the country; they all concar in representing the country in a most deplorable and desponding state. The more intelligent classes have given up their country us lost. The commanding general at Vera Crui, previous to the depanuraiif the Clyde, declared he could not be responsible for the tioops und?r his command, as thay were in a state of starvation. General Santa Anna declares that he will never think of making peace with the United States while theie is an American soldier on Mexican soil, or a ship on the coast. It is firmly believed by all the intelligent clashes in Mexico, that Santa Anna has the preliminaries of a treaty to propose to (Jen. Ta\ lor in his pocket. The Mexican Congrers would, in ail probability, be ; awe 10 meet on me appointed day. There i* not a single rumor that p'-are is ilo^ircd at all by the Mexican*; they leem to bear up nobly against a thousand adversities. The beautiful sloop of war Albany, arrived here on the 7th inat, nine day* from New York, which is a proof of her good sailing qualities. A few nights previous to the departure of the Clyde from Vera Cruz, a small coasting schooner, called the Creolla, at anchor undor the very walls of San Juan de Ulloa, was set tire to by the boats of our blockading ships off" Vera Cruz, after which they escaped without being discovered from the castle There is a long article in the Vera Cruz papers on the subject, one of which says, with tome private letters, thxt the schooner was actually made fast to the castle The officer who onJucted this daring expedition, should be promoted at once to the rank of post captain. SOUTH. AFFA1ES IN MEXICO. [From the New Orleans Delta and Picayune ] El Indicator of the 30th November states, that on the evening o! 36th, (our large boats,.belonging to the United States man of war^tationed at lala Verde, came near the fort, on the side of San Miguel's battery. Their object seemed to be to take three or four large Mexican boats which were fastened near the aforesaid battery. ! la soon as the sentinel on the battery saw the boats he informed his comrades, and a boat was despatched from the fort, filled with armed men, to watch the approiching lighter*. When the Mexican boat cam* near those of the enemy the latter draw off and fired two musket shots ; on hetricg the report two guns with shells were tired trom the fort at Uxe American boats, which retired immediately. Whether they sustained nny damage or not ia not known The Mexican boat returned to tho fort uninjured. Krom the city two guns were likewise flred, aa a sign of alarm, the citizena believing that an engagement had taken place between the fort and the tee t * The Municipal Assembly of Vera Crua had made a petition to the State Legislature, that it ahould appoint Oen Soto aa Governor oi that Department. Beside* tbe 38 COO men at San Luii de Potoei, it ia laid that General* Valencia, Cortezar, and Pacheco, were at the vale oi San Francisco with 6,000 men, who aotsld not find place* to be lodged in at 8*u Luis. Alao, another division, which will number nearly 8 000 men, wus organizing at Tula. These troops, they iay, are destined to attack the Americans at Tampioo. The aforesaid coireapondeuco also itatea that Oen. Tay lort total forces are frem 5,000 to fl 000 regulars, and about 15.000 volunteers, with 1.000 wagons, each of which is drawn by five mnlea or herset. That, according to reports, Oen. Taylor was preparing to leave Mob terey for San Luis about Uie 31st, and it would take him one lull month to teach there. On taking his station ai Minister of Finance, Oen VI monte gave order* that all payments should be sus|Kinded; but AmJieg itch regulation unsuitable to the existing circumstances, he immediately countermanded the order. At a store in San Luia. supplied from Matamoros, six thousand Bewie knives bad been purchased for tho ci'l (ens of San Luia. It is stated by the Mexican paper*, that Oen Taj lor had retired lrum Saltillo to Monterey, leaving at the . former place, a colonel,authorized to enter into arrangement* u ith Santa Anna, and tbat tho Utter had ago ed to meet the (aid colonel, to hear hi* proposal*. That General Taylor, before retiring, had proposed to Santa ' Anna a?u?| ?n?ion oi hostilities, but that the answer of the latter general wa?, that he could i.ot enter into any such arrangements whilst the American troops were so near to his station. A letter from Maxatlan of the llth of November, says that the bio kadirg of that port ia nothing but " ch'ld'a |-lay"'? that the (loop of war charged with the blockade, could not prevent Mexican icnooner from entering there on the 31 nit, and since that, sho ha* not been , neen, consequently, a foreign veasel enteied on the f?th, loaded with provisions, an.I had di'chaiged her cargo, unmolested.

TIIK MEXICAN AHMIST1CK, etc. Kxbcvtivb Orncic, { Austin, Texas, Nov. 23, 1810.) My Dear GeneralI was fsurpri-ed upon my arrival here on the l'Jth inst, to see in the Washington city Union, of tho 17th October, the following paragraph, contained in your despatch of the -16th of Mptember, to the Adjutant Ueueial, vix "It will be aeen that the terms granted the Mexican garrison are less rigerous than those ttrst impose I. The gallant defence of the town, and the fact of a rccent change of government in Mexico, believed to be favorable to the interests of peace, indaced me to concur with tno comniwsionerc in roese lerms, wnicn win, i nope, receive tho approval of Kivernment. The latter consideration also prompted 0 convention for a tnnpor. ry cc-sfition of hostilities." Fiom the a>ove, it may, ami has been inferred that the commissioner* acted withoui having previously had in structions from yourself, which I feel assured jou never intended to be understood to fay, as we received aur instructions from you on both occasions of our retiring with the Mexican commissioners to draft the articles of capitulation. I now beg leave to remind yon of a circumstance which took pl?ce on that occasion, whi h I never intended to speak of publicly, until 1 paw that a malicious print iu Texas, had not only declared that you were opposed to the terms granted the Mexicans, but that Oen. Worth, too, was not satisfied with them?thus endeavcring to coucentiate the whole censure upon my elf, lor Col Davis is unknown to him. and, I presume, he did not wish particularly to injure him. The circumstances alluded to is this:?Vou will, doubtlos* recollect, that when your Commissioners, immediately after your first instructions, returned and reported that they could not agree with the Mexican Commissioners, you rose to leave the room, your officers with you ; some proposition and appeal (is made to you by Uen Ampudia, I believe it was, to allow them to retain, as I understood it, onh their muskets, sabres, and other small arms. I saw a disposition in you to grant the boon, and I then reminded you of my opinion that you roald soon compel '.hem to surrender at discretion, and added, that if you persisted, they would not allow you to leave tiio city, before you would be notified of the ac ceptanra of the terms first proposed. You replied that you did not wish to run any more risk, or shed any more blood?that nil you drsired was possession of the oty, and that that would s<<ti'f> your government. To which I replied, that if it satisfied the government, of course 1 would be content lleie the conversation terminated between na on that point 1 have ever, when 1 have heard yon censured, defended your course, upon the ground that you be ieved the term* grunted would meet the view* and wishes ot the government, and shall do to in future That | art of the rnpitulatien which teema to have been uior.u objected to by the government, h far a? I can learn from ita orgnn, I feel ?ati?fied wan <pite immaterial? more favorable, howevor, to the American than the Mexican army. Every one who baa ceen the condition of thinga in Monterey, na far a< tho Mexican army was concerned, and knew the atrergth of your fmee, rhould well know that it would have been impo?"ible to ndvance, within any tort of aalety, upon the Mexican army within two uiQntba after the capitulation. 1 have the kouor to be, Very respectfully, Your obedient aervant, J.

[From the London Times, Not. 28 ] The Lord* of the Traamrv having now directed the legal condemnation of tho Glenelg; Indiainan; and tha Monarch and Neptane, itaamihlpx, which were intended to take part in tha prouoaed expedition of General Florae 1 to the Fwuador, the following particulars relating to the contemplated invasion have b?en obtained: ? In the early part of June the director! of tba General I Steam Navigation Company were applied to far tha aala I of two of their powerful ateamera, and eventually two { were diipoaad of to tha partial applying, viz: tha ' Manarch iteam?hip, which had heea running betwaan I Leith and Lon Ion, aud tha Neptune, trading betwaan Hamburgh and the Thame*. At about tha game time application wit made irom in* same quarter to .Mr OrMD, the owner of the Glenelg, which ?ru then ly ingup in the F.Mt India Docks, for it* purchase, and which waa also effected. The purchase money waa promptly paid, and ihey were consigned to a Captain Charretie, who formerly was a murine captain io the Cast India Company's service. Th?ir complete repair was immediately proceeded wi'h, the utmost expedition being observed in getting them ready for sea. They wsre repreeented to be for foreign service, and it was stated that the Gl^nelg would be employed aa an emigrant ship. The unusual description of work for the merchant's service mentioned in the shipwrights' contracts excited for some time much attention, but similar work having been done to other vessels in the dock, whioh were really for foreign Powers, and sanctioned by the English ( overnment, the suspicious created by the fittiugs of the Glenelg and tho steamors passed away. In a short time, hawever. about the beginning of .September, the fact of a Colonel who had served under General Klores in Colombia being in London, end authorized, it was said, to engage men, more particularly in Ireland, to aid the Spaniards io a ceitain expedition, and lso to grant conraistions to officers with the same view, caused revival of the suspioiona as to the purpose for which the vessel* were intended. By the following month facts had transpired which greatly tended to confirm previous suppositions, and on the 90th of that month Lord Palmerston, the Secretary for Foreign Attairs. received a protest in r**peat to the proposed expedition, signod by Baring, Brothers, and Co., and the principal firms in the city, and exiling upon the noble Lord to put in force the provisions of the Foreign Enlistment Act. * A second protest was subsequently forwarded from the President of the Manchester Commercial Association, embodying the same representations, Tho Government immediately adopted measures to aaeertaiu the accuracy of the charges contained in these piotests, and several of the rao< active officers connected with the London Detective Police Force were employed in the proceeding. A few day*' exertion anfflced to warrant the interference of the Government. The principals w?re watched irom place to place, and equipments of a m. st warlike character ware proved to have been the o-Jcct of their visits. The fitting outof the ves.iels in i e East India Docks proceeded with much activity, and thoy were appointed to leave last Thursday. From somo unexplained circumstance the steamor did not leave on that day; the Glenalg, however,did, and, after proceeding down the rlrar, took up the usual mooiinirii < ft' Gravesend. At this juncture, it appears, the Government had directed the detention of the vessel, and in the courso of the railing Mr. Forsayth, the principal jerquer of tha Custooii, accompanied by a stall ol officer*, boarded her and seized her under the Equipment and F.nlistment Act, tha 59th, George III , c. 09, for boing unlawfully equipped, without the sanction of Her Majesty, for the purpose of commencing hostilities agaiust 'a foreiftb Cower. There were ou hoard, besides the (hip's company, 260 young men, who semed to hare been recently in the most destitute condition. Tho officers who had charge of the vessel frankly admitted that those on board had enlisted to become eithor toldiars or marines, and that tho was to touch at Corunna. To a casual observer the vossel appeared to have been fitted out as an ordinary emigrant ship, but closer inspection showed that the arrangements were vary rudely put together. Slie is a vary large vessel, being 1,200 tons biydem. She has three decks, and certainly in her present state may be more properly termed a transport ship than one in the emigrant trade. She is said to contain a cargo of 7*0 tons of coals, and consequently draws considerable water. No ammunition was found by the Government officers, but of course it is a difficult to state what she may really hold until her large cargo is cleared out? Since her seizure, the Lords of tha Treasury have ordered her return to Blackwell fer that purpose. As has been previously announced, tha steamers on Friday morning were sei'.ed on behalf of the Crown ky Mr. Fomayth, and on inspecting them there can be no doubt of the purposes for which thev were intended ? They have have been ontirely newly rigged, and evidently altered to carry guns of large calibre. Their ex terior would cause no suspicion, but on mountiar their decks, the bulwarks can be easily laid level lor tha working of guns af any description. Since the detention or the three (hipi, the Lords of the Treasury have received a petition from Captain Chorrelie (who was eventually to be appointed a* the i dmiral of the fleet),soliciting their reititution, averting that they were hit own property, that he had fitted them out ai a matter ef speculation, that ho intended to take them to the coast of Spain and there to dispose ot them to the heat ad vantage to himself. The result of the application has not transpired. There is every reason to believe that a large amount of ammunition and guns has already been shipped, not only in the Thames, but at Liverpool and Southampton, for the coast of Spain Even as late at last Saturday week a vessel, assuming trench colors, left the river from Erith with 3000 lbs. of gunpowder, her papers stating her to be for Cuba The following aaniancement. which >u received at Lloyd's ou the 34th ult, dated Rio Janeiro, Aug ust-34. may in some way have reference to the contemplated movement" The British bark Medora fell in. on the coast of Patagonia, in let. 40 8, in Jmne or July last, with a schooner of about 150 ion*, named the Sovereign, with tlx brass guns, the commander of which stated her to be one of her Majesty's ships, but had no pennant flying. She was standing to the northward, and win bound for Liverpool. The officers on deck appeared in naval uniform*. The Medora also reports that two other similarly armed achooners, but rather larger, had visited the coaat of Patagonia, where British ship* were collecting guano, and were altered freight to take guano to a:> island for the purpose of shipment, but refused, stating that they had otner objects The master i?f one of the vessels wrecked on tha coast of Patagonia stated that ha saw a schooner leave Liverpool last November similar to the above, pierce'1, for, but not showing guns, and full of B, but her destination seemed unknown '' The following ia in the Clamor Public*, from Vittoria, dated the 20th : ?
