They had esbarked on board an English mail st amcr. Hearing of the fact, Captain Wilkes determined to lake them, and, owning up with the steamer in the Bermuda ehsr-nel, he sent aboard and demanded the surrender or the arch rebels. The reply wan that there waa uoi fore.; enough to take them. Capt. Wilkes thereupon gent ati additional force, and at the same timo put the San Jacinto into a convenient position. Messrs. Mason and SI Mel! were then surrendered. The English steamer took them on board knowing who feeyworo, their destination and business.

Old I'o'.nt was electrified by the tidings the San Jacinto had on hoard Messrs.

The San Jacinto will soon proceed to Now York with her distinguished visiters. Capt.iin Wi'kos reported the news at headquarters h person, aud will fi rward his despatches to Washington to-night.

Captain Taylor has arrived as bearer of despatches (Tom Captain Wilkes, of the !?jn Jacinto, which vessel ar rived at Fortress Monroe at hiit'-pagt one o'clock j e^ter* day afternoon, with Mason and Slidell, and the r i-ecreta Tics, Eustis and MeFarland. Tho San Jacinto overhauled the British pa ket Trent, About twonty-four hours out from Hav ana, bound to st. Thomas. The ladles and other gentlemen accompanying the prisoners wero allowed to proceed to England. The Trent belongs to a private company, ait! pli.-o bo Iwoen Vera Cruz, Havana and S:. Thomas. She had no pennant flying when boarded. She is u merchant vessel, tarrying the British malls, which are usually, as in this MM, in charge of some retired British officer an t mail ?gent. No resistance was made by the prisoners, nor ?ny protest olfered by the officers of the Trent,but tho wrest produced great eoustenmlii n among the families and attendants of the prisoners. The trunks belonging to the part to- arm.-tod wire also taken, and ore on board the Shu Jacinto . which imt into fortress Monroe to coal, and now <?? r< to \. w Yoik. Tho arrest was made by Lieutenant Fail fax, whn wail nformed by Masou and Slide!! that they would u l bo taken except by force, lie an-irered. ''Then 1 rltall t.iko you by force." On tho arrival of Captain Taylor at the depot ;n this City, at one o'clock to-day, he was mot 1>,< Mr. Cor< traa, the banker, father-in law of Mr. Etisli", wtime wife was mo of tho party allowed to proceed to England. He ex presseil great anxiety to learn tho names of Dm# parties surested and those allowed to proceed. Your correspondent was rey>ie?t*d by Captain Taylor to communicate to Mr. Corcoran the fan that Ins daugh ter, Mrs. Eustis, had been allowed U> pursue her voyage to England, but that Mr. Eustis was to arrest. Mr. Cor ?oran was exceedingly anxious to learn whether *li? parties were seized on hoard a rebel or a British vessel. Captain Taylor was not, as stated in ? previous despatch, in command of th? San Jacinto, hut waa a pass ngnr on board from the station on th* coast Of Africa, and was requested by taptmu Willteg to bear tho despatches to the government from Fortross Monroe. He proceeded immeo lately from the dejtot to the Navy Department, and reported to Secretary Welles, by whom he was accompanied to the President's, to lay before him and the Cabinet the official report of Captain Wilkes in regard to this important tftfsuw. A special meeting of the Cabinet had aheady beon ?altod, in anticipation of the arrival of Capt. Taylor, which i?sm pre anoouocod by telegraph. ? The intelligence of ti? capture of Messrs. Slid, 11 and o has dlflfased the greatest possiblo joy among all j c!a.- ^e?, including, of course, go.vori.ment ofl'.o.ale, fr< m Uc President down to tbo humhlnnt messenger. The brilliant exploit at Tort Royal wan certainly not mire, if quit* as electric iu It* offail upon the public m ud ua the tui< mg of these generally regarded unprinci pled and damp-rout; rebel einihsariett. WA>?wiitos, Nov. 10,1661. Captain Taylor report* that when the Ban Jacinto ?topped atClcnfuegtM the escape of Slulell and Mmou wu? ascertainec*. I Tim ceding thunre to Havana, it was under" stood they had taken passage o.i the 7th luat. ou the Hiiii.sli mail steamship Trent, plylog between VeraTru*, by way of Havana, ami St. Thnma* and MbuptOB, Whilo Iho Sen Jauuto wax in tlie narrowest nail of tlie Hi hum.! chaiitii-l, ahuut twenty -[our tuilea to the w.-mw vd she mot the packet, and, as usual iu such caies, lirwl a shot across In r bows and brought liei' to. Twobtuis wore wnt to lier, under the command of I.ieutmaut Fairfax, who. Imanling the packet, arretted Met>rs. Ma ww and WideU, who were personally known to him. They at first ohjoctod to being removed without t!io employment of force for tliat purposo. However, they were soon after removed without further trouble, aud conveyed to tho.Sna Jacinto. Th-ir respectivesei retai ies, Busti* and McKarland, were also broiif ht onboard, and ?ro now on their way fo New York. The packet had no other rave her own flag. The remainder of the jiaKvnRsrs, Including tbe ladles connected with the t-'idoll arid Maaon party, wero not molo?t?d, and were therefore left fiee to pursue thojr journey. Tlx* official despatches ao voluminous, and include ?e\eral accounts of the capture, together with the pro. te?t of Mason and SllJell against being taken from a Bi itish ship. It is said thit tho State D#?rtment received several dav? ago Information from the Urrfted FtaVee Consul at Havana thnt Mio-on and Slidell end their secretaries wero tliore, and that he w as watching an opjmrtunity and de viling means to lime them arrested. The San Jacinto was returning from tho African rial ion, and had been ordered to cruise for the privateer Pnniter. Happening to be iu lb neighborhood of Havana at the nick or time, our Consul conveyed to her commander the information cf the sailing of the rebel ernifu aries on the liritlfih steamer Trent, but issued no orders for tlielr arrest. Captain Wilkes, upon his own ret-ponmbility, overhauled tlieui within twenty-four hours' fail from port, and arretted them. When Mr. Kussell, ihu IxinUon Tivut correspondent, h< ard of the arrest of Mai. u and Slidelt, u? retnarkud, " ! would like to have aeeit po>>r Slide) I's face when It' wa* arrested; surely lie must KxAted very funny." Mr. Russell said nothing :.l>out iho overhauling of tlie Trent. Xo epoc'ui instructions had brcn given to ('h> alu Wtlfcea in reference lo the arrest of Mason and Hide l aod their t ecretarieg on beard of any foreign ve<e e'; hut I general orders for tl:?:r arrej.t, emauuling from Iho Navy Department, had been i; sue1 to the officersof our navaj | vessels. There order* were bared upon tho information Iho rebel commiss&t ies had Sillied in tho Theodora j They c JUteiupialed tho arrest upon that vessel; but as their orders were to arrest the portion, and informal i".u h'iil brrn conveyed to Captain Wilkes (hat they bid sailed from Havana, he only did h.i duly a, a loyal American officer in bringing llictn hacfc to lb ? xnulry ih.y were endeavoring to betray, lli* as gumption of responsibility in the premises will be applauded by the whole people of the lovnl State". 'Shore is authority for sarin* that it e a matter of vety Utile moment at whether th" pn*.vnger steamer upon which they were found wasan.American or a forei.-n vc.iei. They wrre fugitlvit from justice, 'iliey w r0 endeavoring to mi-ape from Ihe country In violation of the proclamation of our government forbidding any one?citizen or foreigner?to leave the conn try without the permission of tho btat# Depart ment. Tht-te ih no question aa to tbo manner of the arrest before either tho government or tho country. If there are any circumstances attending it requiring governmental action, thnt can be had hcroaftcr. Tlie great fact of importance now is, the custody of the partial. The country w ill be rcjoice 1 that their escap# ha? been prevented, and that ibey are now prisoner*. No action lias yet been taken by l/>rd l.yon* on the subject or the arrest of Mason and glidcll on board of a Or.tlgh vessel. He bss no official informali<n to act upon yet. H Is stntod that the Spanish Minister was q .ltu indignant when he heard of the the arrest of tho art h traitors, and is reported lo have expressed the hope that the vessel from which tUey were ! taken was a Spanish ship, in which evert Spain would immediately declare war against tho United Slates. Th.- President is quite e'ated over the capture of Slidell and Mason and their secretaries, as arc tbu members of the Cabinet. The proposition now i?, If England demands satisfac Hon, todigavow the act, assert that Captain Wilkes made Jhearroft upon his own responsibility, apologize if neces sary, and in a few months promote Captain Wilkes to be aii Admire), which olllc.? Congress ? ill cheerfully create. Tins programme may ho varied slightly by discussing Ihe matter for a your or two, and then i-ttie it. The prisoners of State brought lij the Pan Jiu Into are to be immediately furnished w ill) quarters at Fort War ren. Hop ton harbor. Mr. Mason's return to Moston ?s a Stale prisoner will r-vive recollections of his declaration when last in that city, thnt he did tnt expect to return thither until he eliot.ld como iu an official capacity as the representative of a Southern confederacy. He is a fit representative of thi! beleaguered ribcl States, and will meet :uj appro priate reception.

'Ilia numerous British residents in our midst cvincjd an unusually agitated frame of minj. coiisi'leringtho h us mesa iu tho light of a very higbhand ed and outrageous proceeding, which would be given i prompt u'liutim by her Majesty'* government. It was i tho opinion of this that nothing kliorl of the s irren dor or the rebel omissaries to British protection, the I casl.i ring of Captain Wilkes and an ample apology from | the President, world ^ntisfy Ihe mtyefiy of British honor. \u a I iso 11 rop >rt was circulated during the yt'tei noon tn the ofl'ec.t that tho English merchants hereabouts had been so grievlously exercised by the news that lliey hnd suspended all buaintss and were about to draw up a ro~ nionstr.ince to the Uuitod Slates governnient agaiusi the supposed vioMion of iulernaiicnal law in hoarding a Urtt.sU etcamcr. It ie needless to state that tho rumor w.w a compleio hoax. No such thing oo curred, ami nothing of the kiuJ, go far iw could bo learned, contemplated. On the con trary, British mer wont ou much a* usual, pur. euing tlicir daily .uoji.s, without troubling their heads imnaces- . tout what <loea not concern tlwm. Thu folks at ,,.u British Consulate, it may be added, evinced little feeling, and wore very diplomatic uud guarded In giving expression to wiy opinion on the sub J 'ct. Ti?i neoompl.licxt nn I pollto Vice Consul could not' ho said, say how the llrlteh government would act, insa much as he did not presunio to know how her Majesty h Ministry would tee fit to view the affiir The Uultod Stati* t;u\ ornmrnt being at pre.!-viii ihe tie facto govern ment here, ho thought it likMy that England would bo dlsp s-vi tomako all rcaaoii&blc 4'. >1 cessions. Among the poopJe the probability of a rupture with John Hull was fro.'ly 'hk ' over, and it must be stated cuiiidly that the prospect was not at all disliked.

This was the sub stance of the remark* one heard among all clatter, and whenever a man quietly Intimated that the govern ment was wrong, ought to give up the robels and apolo gise to England, tweaty voice* immediately d row re ! Ms utterance. Uur li mh citizens exhibited the moat marked evidences of excitement and pleasure. "I.ot the rehola hung Col.

There cau bo little doubt that, in the event of a war with England, thou, sand* of sturdy Irishmen would enrol themselves ail over the Ftate* for the defence ot the country against British hnration, and there is just as litflo doubt that tho v?x pcjmli is in favor of holding fast to Mrs-r?.

Mason slid Slidell on board ? | u*uiral vessel cannot fail to elicit o good deal of oontro. i versy nt homo and abroad, and may, perhaps, a'arm many of our fellow citizens unpcqunintcd with tho spirit aud letter or the rights or natious in thin reipect. their appith ufionh, however, w/'I vanish with a better know jedgc of the cfcsrs bearing on the rights of neutrftls, Md of the opiuioius of writ urn on international law. And,** among tkM* writer* n'>uo hare greater authority and morn influenco than the Kremh, we will submit to our renders some of their view* uton ?uch case* a? the pri'f cut <?uo. Ah a gpnoial maxim ainong nations, Vatal, aud Murtoui arter him, acknowledge that a neutral who lends ms j aistauce to a belligerent. i any shape or form whatever Is liable to l>e treated as an enemy; that a Power at war j has the right to hinder its opponent from being morally or physically reinforced, und that that necessity may a i- j thorlze that Power to prevent ai:y support to be directly ur Iudiicctly lent to the pari} at war with it. When a nation has iuainte<l neutral l'owits with its intentions concerning the enemy with whom II ha* to ural, that nation lies u right, even on a free sea, to bring a neutral vessel to, and to iuv^t upm a proof of its neutrality, as in the case or Mes ra. Ma. on and Slido'.l, and if it cannot prove this. If it prove! that it has \io lated it, tho vessel can be arrested, kept in custody and even confiscated. Now if from genera! considerations ?ef??i to par lieu lar cases, wo will find that nearly all treaties agree on this point, that rri'-u are clashed among (he most dsuger ,mg contraband objects prohibited in time of war by belligerents. lly contraband of war is generally under stood all the objects which a nation can avail itself of against its enemy,audi as equipments, guns, powder, provisions, 4iC. Pome monurcbs, auch as I.ouis the XIV., havo uvea Rooe the length, in tli" interpretation of the word contraband, of seizing walclles and cutlery which were conveyed by the English to the Dutch. But if that word Is liable to receive different interpretations, this is not the ease with men. Here is what JVHatiterouills says "n this subject:? The fact of tramjurrling me" /or Ihr atwunt <f aMlipe rent c. ntti'utet, in '?V ssft'Wtft'iirt, ? more xriiiui no! of the duties of weirfrote than a rase >f contraLaiul. " * ytulraU hai"; Uulirs U> fu{Hl totcanfs naivms at tear, and ilth' ? aptoin of a ship choom to carry men intkemvicr o f one of th'Miiyfi vt* h- njosti liim-e'f to all lit' untie quenccs. i Ortolan, a writer on internatioual law ami a great vi. thority among the French, goes even further than I> Ha ; Veuille. llo thinks that, even in the cas>' when map tain is ignorant of the quality of one of his passengers, ho must surrender him upon summons or one of the belli*.-- j rents to dojio. This, we believe, i also the opinion of j Wbcaton and of Ward. I Besides these authorities, nnd many others that wo do not quote here, facts have sanctioned that right in ;:n unmistakable manner. Take, for Instance, the treaties passed between the nations < f the Old and New continents for th ' last century, and they all consecrate the principle that, though free vessels make free goods, when a man convicted of being in the service of one of llibUg'. rents is found on one of these vessels, that man <aube arretted aud carried away by the party hostile t . it. We find this clause stipulated in the treaty of Ut echt, passed iu April, 1713, between France aud England; in lhe treaty of 1778 between the United Stat's and Kran.-c; iu the treaty of 1785 between the United Stnt.-s and the j King of Prussia. Many other treaties, too long to enu meratclicrc, contain the same provision and cwecnitu the same principle. There is, then, no doubt about the case of Messrs. Mason aud glidell; it is settled by the maxims of irit- ri? < lional law, and the facts we have just quoted. The cap tain on board of whose vessel these triitors wore capture I not only knew their quality a:id their mission, hut, according to o ir information, they had been disclosed to Uini by the Eng lish Consul at Havana in presence of many por.-ons. IP-acted, then, as a purtneijof tlK? cwispiraioi's. ?u n? j that case lie alone Is i espoualfcUi for the action o. ('?pv ? n J Wilkes. This will iikily be the Interpretation whioli 'lie , English government, ftftor a mature examination of the care, will place upon this neeo -ary proceeding. ' IMPORTANT FROM WESTERN VIRGINIA.
