Mr. Seward is preparing hie instructions to tfao now foreign Ministers who are to roplaco our representative* now at the Courts of Europe. I loam they are of the moRt anti-slavery kind, disparaging the Southern repub lic, miarepreeenting its institutions and ridiculing the idea of its Deing aoie to maintain Itself. It is the first time In the history of this government that the Becre tary of State has sent out to Europe in the form of in tractions libels against the domestic Institutions of fif teen States of the Union. DEPARTURE OP SOUTHERN FOREIGN AM B ABBA DORS FOR EUROPE, WASBOKnuN, April 1, 1801. A despatch received here to-day announces that Messrs. Yancey and Rest embarked yesterday from New Orleans for Europe, and that Dudloy Mann embarked on the same day from New Vorlc, as special Commissioners from the Confederate States, to perfect negotiations be gan Kmo time since, by confidential agents of high cha racter now in Europe, for the recognition by the grout Powers of the world of the new Southern government and, moreover, for the formation of a new treaty of the most*liberal kind, and tor the regulation of commercial relat ons. Colonel Masn took with him a largo number of docu' menus, including upwards of a hundred copies of tho new Tariff bill, which will be thoroughly distributed throughout Europe The contrasts between the two governments have al ready opened the eyes of our own people, as well as tbOKo of Europe, and Intelligence which his jiirt l>oeu received hero loaves little doubt upon the mind of our government as to what the ultimata course of the European gxvommcnts v, 111 be in regard to the Southern confederacy. THE ALLEGED EUROPEAN NAVAL EXPE D1TIONS TO A ULRICA. Wjimiixgtox, April 1,1801. Advices received at the English and French legations by the last European mads contain nothing in regard to the alleged Impend itig appearance of Heels of observa tion upon tho Atlantic coast. The report is altogether Discredited by those likely to be best informod on ?>>? subject. Like in cam res for the protection of tae rngliah and French commercial interests are not ex pected to bo taken until after the Intention of the foderal government to blockaae tho Southern port1; and collect the revenue from frhiplcord shall liave bocome manifest. The assertion of tome Southern papers that tho Frcnch and other European governments have intimated a dis position to recognise the independence of the cotton confederacy is likewise pronounend utterly without foundation In fact by bi^h authorities. Even If Eucb a disposition existed, which is anything but certain, it it abrurd to suppose that It would bo signified ere official notice of the existence of such .i thing as the Confederate States of America wus given to the governments in ques tion. However the Southern Corami?iouors now on the way to Europe may lie received, It is certain that simul taneously. with the.r appoaranco at the Courts of St. .lames and St Cloud, protects against the recognition of the revolutionary authorities thoy represent will bo fedged with tho English and French Ministers of Foreign Affairs, in accordance with tho instructions sent out by the Secretary of State on the Arago. OFFICIAL DESPATCHES FftOM MEXICO. Wasbthbtox, April 1,1861. Advices were received by the government this morn ing, with dates from the City of Mexico to the lith of Mar< b. The aspect of ail'airs was unchunged. The new government was gradually but surely settling down to pero aneocy. The interior of tho country, however, was still aiMcted with bandits, who were robbing and pluu dering wboicver aud whenerer opportunity atlarded. A letter w<m also received this morning by a gentle man in this city from President .lustres. He writes eu rouritsingly of the prospect or a speedy establishment of pence and tranquillity throughout the country. All his effort* are directed to that end. Ho manliest? great in tercst ? nd anxiety in the prosperity of the I nited States, and sincerely hopes that the troubles and difficulties that now Impend ove^his country will be speedily dissipated. SPANISH INTRIGUES IN 8T. D MINGO. Wa.-iiekito!*, April 1,1861. Sonor Alvares arrived here this morning, direct from St. Domingo, with despatches for the Spanish Minister.

But at the proaent time the necessity of this change to tho public interests is unmistakoablc. TVi say nothing of tho 1 ocullar nature of recent evouts, experience haa de monstrated the groat benefit of a thorough chango. The course of tho rk-crctury of War in not without precedent.

Importers nave not been siow in tlndicg oat this provision, and tho oonsequoDCo has been thai tho gooda ou *h. h a reduced duly is to lie It-vied bav? been hurried into publ'c stores during tho past month Cho ;>r nipal article* thus warehoused are sugar, wrass ?, Uantla hemp and todiffo But yesterday was tbo 1st of April, and the* goods ODuld then in witbdr.? ?u fur th :,i?t ti^n-i *t the new rate. m porters wbo had ue1ay?d their salei until then made largo withdrawals of merchandise under the new rates.

About ff O 000 wor.h at sugar and moliis*<? was ibus withdrawn. Iho work of posing tho withdrawals n more thm double, and c msequently more tune was con sumed a getting *-ho entries through This gavo rise to much ilia?atlsfacUcn on the part of the importers. But they must be patioat and wait their turn, for with the prci-oat force of government clerks they cannot expect to got their goods as &. ou as heretofore. Many and many moro of tho newly UeJged merchants of this city have vrteJ tho Custom House a nuisan-.e, a bore, an inextricable -naze, an unconquerable trouble. If ?uch were tbeir opinions during tho adm in 1st ration of the tariff of lb-67, what their opinions yesterday were might have been gathered from some of tho oxplethea, which wero in many cases rathor raoro expressive thau ei?gint. It is supposed that to make out an "entry ro quires a little experience; and perhaps it docs, but when we And custom brokers, whose business it ha* been lor years to attend to such matters, eompletely at a loss, it certainly shows that the present complications are cum plicated indeed. <?no of these brokers yesterday took an entry to the proper desk, with the aUsfccticn that all was correct visible upen his face, wfcen to his horr ir ho was told it was not made out according to law. " W liy, sal,I ho "1 was several hours mailing it out, and 1 tmsuro It must be correct." "Correct? No," wastheansweri"you have your sugar moires ana melado on the Bamo on try. Tho duties are all different, and yet you do not spe cify there in a different manner," so the entry had to be made ont afresh. 1c ano-her case tho value of the mo lasses was specified, but not tko quantity. This was an other source of trouble, because the duty could not bo estimated while the entry wns in that state. Oneoase came up whcie two different duties had beer speoiilod tn tho now tariff. "We have received no Instruction in this case,' said the clerk, "so the entry must lay over." "But how long/' inquired the merchant; but no definite answer could be ..btalned to tho query. " Th s Is a regular nuisance," said the merchnnt. "Can t help It," said tho clerk; " without instruction i, wo bavo to administer the tarin to the beat or our abilities, but when a difference of rates like this occurs the entry must lay by." ' And wo lose the Rale of our goads in th* meanwhile," the merchant intimated?" nice work t . u ly ? Tho only reply was, " Can t holp it." In anotU, r cane where the inv oice had not stated all the particulars necessary to pass tin entry under the nevv tanft, the clerk said, " 1 must have it staled boili ways." "But how can 1 get at these particular? It is not sWUtd on tho invoice." "Well, thou, the entry must lay on one side; I cannot pass It." "But how are we to know/ asked the merchant. "Can't aay," said the clork; but you are responsible." Hero was another cuo or grum bling, but grumbling did no rood. ?me anxious indivi dual wished to know .f bow mi to specify on tho entry that the case was fastened down with woodon screws, as there was a specific duty upon tbetn The deputy col lectors and clerks in tho Naval Ofllce awcrted that the government would ice bf t'<e present operation, a . all good;; paying lower diitice ihoii formerly were being pa?t.i yesttrday, but nothing paying a higher rate. Nearly every por on was asking of hi? fellow if he knew what tho law was regarding this, that or the other, but no one aeomed to knew anything certiin about it. An inquiry wan ma.!o relative to some article spcciQed in the tarifl at two rau*. "Well, enter it at the lower one," was the reply. "How*" "Take 1'eruvian bark for 'instance If you enter it as Peruvian bark you will havo to pay ten per cent, but if you enter it as 'Baik Peruvian.' thore can be no duty charged thereon In accordance with the tariff With rosirrt U, horn, bone, Ac.; ir yon enter it as 'msnuflseturr* or horn, bone, Ac.,' you will |*>y thirty por eeut, but If you enter it us -horns bones. Ax.,manuractured,' It is only ten per cent. Do you see .tr But be sure your invoice! are so nuide out." One person laid to tho entry clerk, alter having heard some explanations from him, that he wouM n,.t bo l?oth( rod making out the entry in eueh, as bo thought, ridlculoui manner. "Well, wo can't comjiel you to do to; but we will not pas-" your entry." These entries cause the merchants a great deal of trouble and los* oi time, and where,en Termer occasion*, tbe work was all flnished within au hour or so, It now requires days, both at home and at tbe Custom House, One large morcantilo house in tbe dry goods business m this city ha^ Had to take on ten other clerks or bookkeepers in consequent of the extr.i calculation required by the new taritl More than double the lormer calculation is required at the Custom House, and a great deal of extra labor will be thrown upon the amendment do- k; for it w ill bn totally impossible to enter correctly all tho a. ticks imported; therefore the duties Will bive to be paid as deposit, to be refunded or added to, as the case may be, when the goods are appraised. But this appraisement will take a groat length of time. The articles are to be weighed, gsugel or measured, the threads to be counted, the quality and quantity determined, Ac., ntd then tbe duties nin be delinltely tlxod. To show pome of the expected tro' b ?, our reporter Baw an entry ye?terday made out for goo is paying nineteen per ?mt duty; the appraiser returrr.i the quality cf the artlcltB as being ml*"d, and sut.ject to twenty-four per cent duty, the diflerenco had,tb<ro fore, to be calculated at thli de.dt. On atotber cut.-> v?r found "labels entered as paying fifteen per cent the appraiser returned them as "pai>er paying * mu< h Uglier duty. If sucb errors occurred under the old tariff, whnt must be tho llkolr trouble under the new one, which seems to pontic all tho officer* of the enstoms, from the highest t<> tbe low 'Stf Tlicolllce of the'Jollecuir was yesterday visited larje number of merchants, desirous or having hi* views upon certain portions of the now tarifl which they ou' l not understand.
