The Tripartite foalilion Against the Mexican Republic* Active Preparations for the Campaigns. Napoleon Desires a Monarchy for Mexico. Threats of the Mexicans to Slaugh ter the Spaniards.

C, Crooker, commander, which lull Havunaon the 12th inst., arrived at this port oarly yesterday mornidr. She confirms the information that Messrs. Slidell And Mason, tho Oouf'iderat* Commissioners, with their families and suite, Bailed from Havana on *he Tth Inst., by the English steamer Trent, for Southampton, via St. Thomas, having received niaikod attentluu from parties in Cuba, which followed them to their embarkation. Charleston papers of the 4th received in Havana by a pilot boat which runs regularly between those ports, announce tho safe arrival of tho ?teaming which conveyed tho Commissioners to Havana, as also the sailing of the steamer Nashville, with some seventy naval ollicers?destination and object not staled. Rebel merchant captains, of whom there are a lurge number at Havana, pronounce the blockade only iticon vemeut, and hand you almost daily for perusal pa|>crs o1 late date from the ports they last sailed from. The Spam h fleet, bound to Mexico, was all ready to ?ail, aud only awaited tho arrival of vessels from Pp.iiu> 'now past duo. The expedition goes down strong, aud trill bring about terms which can be accepted, or wil| levy on property and adjuo icnto. News from Mem o by the EugIish steamer Trent, from "Vera Cruz 1st lust., is not luvorable to the present admin istration ol Juarez. The disaffection of General Ortega, who has retired to his own SUte (Zacatecas), tells against the government, aud givos Marquez almost entire command of the held. This General, with some ten or twelve general* in his suite aud four thousand troops, lias been once defeated; but he had rallied again ?witlx undiminished numbers, and was approaching tho ?valley of Mexico; but il was supposed that he would bo defeated. Tho constitutional guarantee, suspended by Congress, has been restored by the odict of Juarez. The report that Mexico had acceded to the demauds of 'England and franco was not believed at iho capital. Cuor ?tiavaca, twenty-four miles from the capital, was in the tiands of the rebels. Eight hundred filibusters had passnd the river Bravo, and were marching upon Duruugo. Max Marelzek, with a portion of his company, had taken the route from Mexico and l'uebla, via Jalapa, to Vera Cruz. The party were roughly handled by the reaction ists, and met with Considerable loss. The other portiou of tho company, including tho Natliey girls, were attacked at .Arr.tgog.jrco, and a part of the troupe, wilh tho girls, was taken to the strongholds in the mountain, and will be held for ransom. The Cosmopolitan on her outward trip experienced, to the southward of Haltora s, a terrific gale from th south Mat, commencing on the evening of tho 2d and lasting somo large quantity of tent poles, ammunition boxes, so.'jVW ? part of a spar deck of a steamer. On the 15th passed a vessel's quarter boat and some spars. With the excep tion <>i two days has experienced heavy head seas and tvtndg on the voyage homo. Oar Havana Correspondence.

Tho s'oamer Cosmopolitan, which arrive.I on tho morn iu? ibo 6lh, loaves to-day for New York. The Columbi. arrived yesterday morning with a considerable number of .? wsongore. Her non arrival on Sunday caused con; Biderable apprehension that she might have boon char" 4ercd by the government, which would havi l>e ? sad < to us here. 1 sect you a letter ' ihe ?flunuah Thurst >n, wiiioh loit here on the 5th, ant v J calci.latoJ would reach you in good time. A day or two after the a rival of tho Cosmopolitan a rumor was cirront that a special commissioner from "Washington had arrived by her, char sod with a socro' mission to tho Captain General in relation to tho M?xi< an expedition, to the effect thai if the expedition were conn tei luaude 1 tho United States government would pay Mexico's indebtedness to Spaiu. and that If that proposi tion wore rejected the amount would be te.iderod .to Mexico to enable her to resist tho invasion. ?Jt struck mo a* improbable that tho government at Washington would treat directly with the Ceptain Gen", ral of Cuba, unless functionary were invested with the fullest powers in regard to making war or peace with Muxlco, and when, besides, wo know that Sonor Toysan, tho Spanish Mi lister, is still in Washington. But I was told in reply that tho Captain General is, in fact, invested with tho fullest powers in regard to MexiOO ; that ho has powor to soud or suspend the expedition, as in his judg mom may soeni best; and that bumg the cose, in all probability Senor Tassara referred tho Unitod States government to the Captain General. I, of course, endeavored to And out the name and whereabouts of the commissioner, but without success, and I give you tho rumor as 1 hoard it, not from one but Xrom twenty or more. If thore is any truth in it, your correspondents in Washington have no doubt ferreted out the whole affair from beginning to end long before thi letter can reach you. Again, it may bo truo that the Captain General is Invested with the fullest (lowers in re gard to Mex ico?though I confess I accept tho assertion cum grano salis?and we know that Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet it determined to stand by Mexico at all hazards. If both can be put together, then it ih possible that acommis* ?loner from Washington may have arrived. In the meantime tho expedition is rabidly organizing and I understand the departure is positively tix< d tor tho 15th Inst. Troops continue to arrive from St. Domingo aud I have seen large quantities of provisions shipped on board tbe various vessels of war in the harbor. Among the recent arrivals in port is the line French frigate La Koudre, sixty guns, which 1 should say were of very light calibre?apparently eighteen pounders. Our distinguished visiters from the South, Messrs. Ma son and Sltdell, with their suites and families, left on tho 7th for Kurope on board the English steamer Trent, from Vera Cruz. The Trent left Vera Crux on the 1st, and brings date* from the capital to the 2Uth ult. There is very little news. On tho 20th ult. the forces under Marquez and other clergy chiefs were beaten by Generals Diaz and Mejia at the Mineral del Monte, near Pachuca, after a desperate resist, ance. In the lleraldn'i comments on the official des patches it is asked, very pertinently, what sucti victories amount to, when in four days afterwards tho biaten forcwi were attacking Tacbaya From a passenger by the Trent I learn that so exa*|>. rated are the Mex an* at the threatened invasion by Spain, that the flrst cannon shot will be the signal for an indiscriminate slaouhler of all the Spaniards in Mexico. The throat is aino made b* tho Prograo of Vera Cruz, of tho 1st Inst., in an editorial If this tie true, I am ifraid "Spaniards" will mean foreigners of whatever nation. The garrison of Vi ra Cruz la sal I to be only eight hundred men From an official report made in 1S55, It appears that the foreign population at that time in Mexico was 9,233 of ?which 6 141 were Spaniards and about tioo Americans' I presume there lie* been very little if any increase since then, i roin the many murders Of (englishmen and Ger trans lately, It Is noi dittlcnlt to conclude that all foreign ers are objects of Inure 1 ?ud persecution, and the day the Spat.iards land may ie a sad one for thein. On the other tiaad, General Matst-le. who is to command the exp -.lit,on, Las sa.i 1 ha: If ore Spiuiard Is murderod, he w.ll lay waste ibecK of Vera Cruz by Are aud sword?aud hois ?aid to he . t <?a of his word.

'I ho samo parties had h contract once before of a somewhat similar charnc lor, which they completed three months before the apoci llod timn. The rainy Reason may now be Raid to be ontlrely over, and the weather U delightful. Tho Columbia brought us yosterday tho Opora company, bo anxiously expected by our fashionable world, and the gayeties of Havana will soon be fairly opened uud in full blast, unless the sc arcity of money should operate unfavorably. In fact, the oldest Inhabitant does not remember a time when money was so scarce as at presont; and, what is worse, H may continue as long us tho civil war lusts in the United Stales. Savannah papers of the 2d Inst, we-e reeoived here night before last, but they contain nothing of special Interest. I p to the pro sent, no news has bean received of the great expedition, towards which so many eyes are anxiously turned. News has been received ol iho safe arrival at iliarlonton of tho steamer Theodora, alias Nashville. The contract for llnisliing tho Havana Railroad was awarded yesterday to Mr. Benson, of Now York.

Doblado, who could olloctuallv ropo with him, is looking out for himself and for power. The rebels are again in forco In I'uebla and Tlaxcala. The government forces had dls'.odged them from Matumoras and Izucar; but while securing this advantage Amoxoo was taken and the commander shot by the re actionists. Tlie church forces are ulso in possession of Cuornavaca, eight leagues from Mexico, having relations with the faction of Buitrou, who has so often threatened the capital. Tacubaya Is kept in constant alarm by the approaches of insurgent lorcos, either of highway bandits or detached parties under Marquoz. Humors wore circu lated in the city of Mexico that Facutos, agent of the Juarez government, had been authorized to acknowledge 'he claims of Fnglaud und France, aud to treat for their liquidation, under the influence of money, it was suggest I'd, to bo loaned by tho United States to poor Mexico; but Mie reports were not generally credited, a though it was said Mr. Cui win was in favor of the loan proposed to be taken, (ieneral Dobiado, with his forces, which he claims as belonging to hts State, was resting in tiuana juato, while hi.- cards were being played by Ills friends. <)i taviano Munoz, luto Minister ot Foreign Allairs for Miritm n, was arrested on tho 8tli ult ,and important sedi ti his documents were found upon hi* person or in his |m sses 8Ion.

The raoutli has gone Hooting into the dusky put, and, unless wo record the rout of Marquez, the champion of tho church, near Pachuca, I y (ieneral Tapia, left no note on the pago of Mexican history. The defeat, though pro nounced to bo completo, with tlio loss o! tho enemy's arms,munitions anil artillery, will contribute notbin' towards bringing to a crisis tho revolutionary disorders of tho country, now become chronic and beyond the sKili of native remedies. Congress, still in session, ts used as lhe arena for the display of wordy gymnastics, wherein a lew senior wrangiers so well preserve the equipoiseoj faction that neither the government nor th ? opposition can advance a line in tho respectable programmes drawn up for their guidance. Under this condition of alfui.s the laud lies punt lug, her resources grow "beautifully less,'' bur finance8 more entangled, her foreign relations more com plicated, and life and proper!) more precarious, un til all classes in desperation confess tho vanity of demo, ciacy aud iltroot wistful looks to tho Old World beyond the seas. Murmuring that peace, however akin to des* poti-m, i* preferable to tho flywheel onorgies of tho liberal idea, they, like their Aztec ancestors, impatiently await tho avatar of some uuknowu deliverer. Nor is this reprehensible when it is told that scarcely a dili gence arrives or departs whose passengers and mails are not rilled by the robbers swarming on the highways; that to tho very gates of tho capital banditti approach* robbing and murdering all they encouuter, and that from housetops cau be descried, during any wcok, the lloecy smoke of tome combat rolling along the sides of the mountains which hem in the valley oi Mexico. To add to this accumulated confusion, the governmont as rumor heralds, meditates a resumption of all tliechurch property contiscated under tho law of 1857, and purchased by individuals or companies on the faith of a subsequent decree giv on at Vera Cruz. This measure, treacherous as it may appear, is justifled by a fundamental law of Mexicoi which authorizes tho State to assort her title to any of her property alienated at prices notoriously below its ju.?t valuation?a warning to thoso Teutonic gentlomon who, tickled by ideas of "the cheap," are hurrying tosettlo in Sonora, Chihuahua and the contiguous provinces upon lands already knee-deep in titles anil mortgages to th0 Baron Orus, Mackintosh and tho British bondholders. In fact, with tho exception of the mines, the results of which, developed or dormant, at tho will of the holder, offer no certain temptation to the appropriation, ihoro is no secu rity for investments of any kind in thiB republic. Among the many contracts and privileges made to pass tho ordeal of this "saving clause," rejiort numbers, I am sorry to say, the concession securod by Mr. Plumb, of the United .States Legation, for a line of mail steamnrs be tween New York aud Vera Cruz. A severe blow it would be to Americans hero, dependent, as we are, upon the monthly British packet, and elatod at the prospoctof obtaining from the seat of war intelligence through our own papers, by the direct arrival of which, belore pass ing through the alembic of the English and Spanish press, our relations here are groatly influenced. We sincerely trust, while acknowledging our obliga tions to the foresight which rcacbed at such advantages, that tho Mojuc.iu government may properly appreciate a communicanSn to bo so fruitful in benefits as soon as the rebels at home Fhall havo been disposed of. Hundreds of paintings borne away from tho supprossod churches and convents must, at all events, bo exempt from the retroactive longings of tho higher law; tor hav ing here ne market value, very many have been bought up with the design of remitting them to Europe, rather than works of Intrinsic merit, as peculiarities of fervor and tho igbl struggling for expression through the only art allowed by the Spanish system to the children of the soil. Against thus sweeping condemnation tbe Mexicans claim l? lia\e iia i some originals of Velasquez. Murillo, and thu pupil* f tiiolr school.

Tlie best comment ii|x>n the fearful anarchy ruling this country is lui uished by this ite'n of a'atistics; It needs no labored exiosition?no rhetoric? like a pyramid of skulls, or some frightful t.olgolha, the figures stand forth. Tho French and Kngl'.sh ministers on ouo side, ana tho Ministor for Foreign Allaire on the other, are yet at the Mlcawber game, "waiting for sum thing to turn up." The duets do nut uiako their appearance, nur are the demands Otthese diplomats attended to liy the gov Tttment, unless we are to believe that the United States are to ass ime the payment o|'tlie -'Ilrttish t onvention debt," and se relieve Mexico, for the present, of her clamorous creditors. With much diffidence I communicate to your readers the substance ol' vague rejiorta, which, though living about without any^ known paternity, are to my mind <onver sunt of matters here, worthy ol attention. Italy yields Sardinia to Franco, in exchange for the withdrawal of French troops from Home and England, for her a> quiescence in this irai>eriai agg -andtsement, Is not to he interfered within her annexation of Mime. The British press latterly has been leavening ilie mm s of the nation for such a move by articles tending to prove that France would not be strengthened by th? acquisi tion of the island of Sardinia, while forces have been Steadily thrown into Canada to ari amm nt that the provinces may be said to be prc| ared for war. Thus the network of Kurooe in intrigue will bo woven aroi nil the Ainericis, and glnw-tly traditions ol Old World politics be th list upon a fresh and vigoroi.s |ieople. We have, to serve a temporary presaure, yielded tlie doctrine of pri vateering. so ably i.nheld by Mr. Marcy. The Monroe doctrine most soon tie a dead letter, and unless you at homo promptly strangle rebellion the Kuropoan Powers will pan el out the contl' ent as a reward to hungry aris tocrats and fortuneless princes.

Cornelius came over of his own accord, and says ho would rather die than go back to Old Virginia. Be is very bright, apparently bettor informed than the majo rity of slaves, speaks well and fluently, and is communi cative only when inquiries are made and Information is requested from him; in fact he is an elegant speci men of what is generally known as an "intel ligent negro.*' Cornelius was the sorvant of Captain Bladen Tayloe, of Colonel Carey's Thirtieth Virginia regiment, whioli has been stationed at Marlboro Point, in Stafford county, Virginia, near Fredericksburg, but which is now believed to have moved to Mathias Point. The Captain is a son of Colonel Tayioe. who was a member of the Richmond Convention, and whn has another son? Poinsett by name?captain of th? 1 - ? Uwi|o noraer Guard, which is now at the battery at Evansport. Each of them has a farm on the banks of the Rappahannock river, about twenty miles from Ma thias Point. Captain Bladen Tayloe s company went into camp on the 20th of May, on a place called Mt. Ida, on bis brother's farm. After remainining there a week, he went to Hampstead, nino miks from Mathius Point' About a week after they were joined at Hampstead by Captain Ooldin's company from Carolina county, Virginia. About the 1st of June both companies moved to Mathiag Point, but were ordered to encamp three miles buck in the woods, so as to be out of the range of the shells from the flotilla. They had pickets out day and night to watch tho operations on tho Potomac. The nogroes in tho neigh, borhnod were employed in throwing up riflo pits, and tho soldiers finished them. They were working at those earthworks the day Captain Ward was killed. He was shot by a man named Andrew Pitts, of the Spotty Grays organized in Carolina county, Virginia, and armed with sharp's rides, the company numbering fifty at that timo. Pitts was said to be tho best shot in Virginia, and wa8 constantly practising at marks. After ho had killed Capt. Ward, the best sKots in the company would try their skill with him. One day fifty tired at a mark, and ho proved h.mself a superior shot to any of them. But ho is dead now. He died about tho 15th of October, of typhoid fever, in tho hospital in Frodcricksburg. There were only two companies at Jla. Sitwo from SoutU America.

We arc In receipt of dates from Rio Janeiro nnrt othor parts of South Amorica to the 8th of Octobor, inclusivo. The principal Intelligence is contained in the ofltela account of a battle fought between tho forces of Buouo' Ayres, under General Mitre, and those of Urquiza, th? President of the Argentine Confederation, resulting in tho coraploto defeat of the latter. Goncral Mitre, writing to the Minister of War, states tha1 on the ovening of tho 10th of September, ho commenced tho invasion of the territory of Santa Fe, passing tliu Arroyo del Medio towards the north. On tho follow ing morning ho marched upon tho enemy at the bead of 15,600 men, with tnirty-four pieces of artillery, of which the army of operations if the Province was composed. Whilst marching upon the enemy General Mitre was enabled to C'lt his line of battle, isolating two of his divisions, and driving his vanguard to the other side of the Canada Rica, where tho Buenos Ayrcans met the army of the onemy in a body, to all appearance of the strength of 16,000 or 17,000 men of tho threo arms, with forty-two pieces of artillery, some of them of heavy calibre. At half past two o'clock I'. M the tiring commenced on both sides. Mitre's line advancing until it was placed at half cannon shot from that of the enemy, who ha: deployed his contro upon a strung |iositlon on l'alaci>s "SMtiria, with his rear to the Pabon. After having shaken nis line by a strong can nonade for a few raonn'iit? ouiy , the centre of the Buenos Ayrean army advanced r m> utely.and the intrepidity of the soldiers, logettn with the intelligence and energy of the chiefs and oilier* who commanded them, and who took the entire coutre of the enemy under a deadly fire of musketry and artillery, put to Ilight tho enemy's Infantry, taking the greater part of their guns, pursuing the fugitives, and capturing a considerable number of prisoners. Colonel Pauuero, who lod tho Huenos Ayrean centre, was saluted General ou the field of battle by his companions, and in representation of tho gallantry of the infantry of liuonos Ayres which he conducted to vic tory. At half past four P. M. the Buenos Ayrean infantry re niaiued in quiet possession of the Held of battle, a large p iri of the ennmy's cavalry boing dispersed, but from which were taken many prisoners, up to twelve o'clock .it night, at which tune Mitre's eighteen battalions and arti.,ery were all united, without other loss than those killed on the field of battle. The wounded were all gathered up. The trophies of this victory are twelve hundred pri sonersat present, six flags and two standards, thirty seven pieces of artillery, among them those of heavy calibre, and the fourteen pieoes lost in Cepeda; also five thoosaud horses, all the park of ammunition,commis sariat and ambufaces, and we have destroyed somt two thousand mnskrt^ with which the enemy, In his Ilight, had covered th# tUd of battle, and more than one thou sand U'ken from his park Among the prisoners are many chu is .uid dicers, and almost all those belonging to the artillery The Buenos Ayrean cavalry at one lime in tho fight was surrounded o| both wings, some three h.mdred men only remaining lithe field of buttle, including Mitre s escort of the Naifrnal Guaid,|iart of which he had placed under the orders W Gitneral Homos, who, after making supreme efforts 9 con tan his 'eft wing, joined the trium phant centre wlh the few troops h < oould assemble. Thereafter he i/>* thirty seven ammunition wagons from the enemy, carting them ofl by force from a strong column of catrtlf whfcL took him olf the field. In a private l?cr to his wife, General Mitre writee. "II Is the nui precious trophy of my victory, anc. I hope my gresu+glory, that we have not abandoned - single one of 'tr bounded, nor yet of those ot the f i ,v, twi liurired of whom in all, are now attendeu to IL our Uosp tals? The other trophies of the yictory, as I ssoo'taiti-xi upk>tV IPth.were sixteen hundred pri tlilas Point at the time of that engagement, while only j une took part In it. The other company wan back in the woods and could not come into the open fields without being hit by our shells. Throe days aft or, a Bbell from the I'awnoe killed a robol. There was a rumor then that Union soldiers intended to land at that place. Colone' Buckenborough's regiment whs immediately ordered to the Point, togolher with Captain Walker's battery, which has six pieces of rifled artillery. Those are the only guns they have had at Mathiaa Point. They were cast at the foundry in Fredericksburg. A hundred hands have been at work in the foundry, wblch has boon in oporatlon day and night since the commencement of the rebellion. For merly whites wero employed in the foundry; but as most of thi'm hare gone to the war negroes do the work. Four days before the battle of Bull run; th? entlro force at Matbias Point was ordered to Manassas. Captain Walker's artillory arrived two hours before the conflict closed,and It had been said by some that had It arrivod two hours later the rebels would have lost Manassas. The infantry did not arrlvo till the battle was over. All his horsos and ten of his men were killed. The thirty two pound Parrot gun captured at tho battle of Bull run |S now in Captain Walker's battery. After remaining throe days at Manassas, Captain Bladen Tayloe's compa ny went to join Colonel Carey's Thirtieth Virginia regi ment at Marlnoro Point. A month ago the regiinont was ting up an immense battery on the highest point of land ?rdered to Evausport,aud was engaged two weeks in put bade of Evau&port. It was finished as far as they could finish it about two weeks ago, when the trees which had maskod it during its construction were cut down. Kir closures are made for twenty-one guns, but ouly nine are mounted. The largest of them is a sixty-four pounder It was impossible to get the rest of the guns in position beforo the leaves began to fall from the trees; therefor* the battery was left in Its present condition, mounting seven guns. That was intended to be the most formida ble battery on the Potomac. No new batteries have been erected at Aquia creek. Captain Smith had three guns stationed betweeu one and two miles up l'otomac creek ? but his company is now disbanded, some of his u.e having left because their term of enlistment had expired' while quite a number died. The guns, however, are snil there. A South Carolina regiment is encamped on H in. stead's hlU, about two miles back of where those guns ... There are no troops and no fortiflcationg at Fredericksburg. Slokness ana aeam uouuuue to weaken the ranks of the rebel army. There are a large number of stck In the hospitals at Fredericksburg. From ten to fifteen die every day, while as many sick ones come in from the various regiments on the lower I'oto mac. Typboid fever is the prevailing disease among them, and this is partly attributable to Insufficient cloth, ing. The rebels are but illy uniformed, and some of them have no shoes on their feet. Corneli us says thero has been a constant communica tion kept up since the commencement of the war between the rebels in Virginia and those in Maryland who sympa. thize with them, and it is still kept up. People watch tho flotilla, and whon all the steamers are out of sight they cross over in small boats. Through that medium largo quantities of arms, an immense amount of ainmuni. tion, shoes and other necessary articles were conveyed t0 the rebels. There are now fourteen Marylanders on the Virginia side watching for an opportunity to return to Maryland. The rebels have been in tho habit of en. deavoring to frighten their negroes by telling them that tho federal soldiers, if they caught thom, would keep some of the best of the slaves, cut off the hands and feet of those they did not like, and send the rest to Cuba to pay the expenses of tho war. They also told horrid sto. rles of tho barbarities of the Spaniards in Cuba, and by that means ondeavored to eradicate any desire which the slaves might have to run away and leave them. donors, thirty-four piecos of artillery, eleven llaga and standards, all the Dark, ambulances and commissariat of thu enemy, five thoi.sand hofSM and lour thousand arms, including fusils, lances and swords. In the otllclal report of (Jonoral Viriisoro, of the Argen tine army, to President Ufquiza, ho lays claim to the vie tory, saying that he loft one thousand live hundred of the enemy dead on the Held, and that he toolc one thousand two hundred prisoners, a number of officers, the convoy and baggage. It is hard to reconcile tho two statements, though the balance of probability seems to be with tho Buenos Ayreans. Attempted Murder In the Tombs. Folix Sanchez, tho mulatto who has been conllned m the Tombs for over two years on charge of murdering his father in-law, Martin Carnon, came very noar killing one of the tier boys on Sunday afternoon, and hod it not been for the interference of somo of the prisoners he would probably have a second murder to answer for. Sanchez, It appoarsr wanted a ladder to shut his window, and requested Jacob Trueheart, tho tier boy, to bring him one. The tior boy refused to accede to the request, however, becauso of tho absence of Mr. Hrown, tho kcoper. Nothing was thought of tho occurrence until about three o'clock in tho after" noon, when the cell doors wore opened for tho puri>oso of gi\ ing the prisoners their dinners. As soon as Sanchez's door was unlocked he rushed upon Treuhonrt with a sharp pointed wea)>on, and aimed a blow at his breast. Fortu nately for thu tier boy tho movement was not unper coived, or he would probably have been killed on the spot. As Sanchez aimed the blow Treuheart raised his arm and received tho full forco of tho weapon in tho tleshy part of his shoulder. Tho prisoner then tried to stab the tior boy a second time; but through the interference of James Sheppord, a fellow prisoner, he was prevented from doing any further vio lence. By this timo Mr. Brown, the keeper, came up, drove 8 inches into his cell, and tho difficulty was set tled. Subsequently the prisoner was placed in irons and removed to a dark cell, by order of the Warden. A doctor was called in to attend Truo beart. hut it was soon ascertained that his wound was by no means a serious one. Tho instrument with which the wound was indicted was the half of a large pair of tailors' shears, sharpened in the mo>t dangerous manner. How the assailant procured the weapon is a matter of no little surprise . Seizure of a British Vessel for Running the Blocltadei UNITED STATES MAKSUAI.'f OFFICE. Nov. 18.?The W. 11. Kibby, Captain J.

Tho escape of a lady from Martinsburg to Darnestown affords me an opportunity of communicating pretty sccu rate and very interesting facts concerning tho rebels in Virginia, and their prosent condition. Tho lady's num< is Mrs. Crook, a citizen of Baltimore, who hns been rccirfiag in Martinsburg for three years, and whose sons are in t'n? Union army. She esca|ted by way of McCoy's Forry, and brings news from Martinsburg and other important points in Virginia as late as Tuesday last. The story of her adventures and the difficulties which she encountered it making hor way to tho Union lines forms a very interesting narrative. Sho states that when she left Martinsburg there wero only 400 of Colonel Ashby's cavalry, which constituted tho garrison of the town. Colonel SIjkjs wm in command at Martinsburg. At Leesburg th re are 7,UKi men, and the placo is fortified with cannon on the left side of the turnpike leading to it, but on the other sid* of tho road it is undefended, and might be surprised and captured without much loss. The division at Lt osburg is under the command of General Jackson. It may be a* well to stato hero that the acts of Vandalism receutiy committed in Virginia by tho troops un.lei J ickson's command were perpetrated on the sole authority and sole responsibility of that officer. The lady >lld not know the number of guns Jackson has with his division. The rebels do not expect an attack on Manassas, but they havefortlfiod Centreville, and have about 45,000 m<-a stationed there to defend It. There is a salt mine in Vi ginia which is worked, and tho rebel forces are supplied from it. Salt is good in this mine, and It commands four and five dollars a bushel. Flour is selling at Martins burg for five dollars a barrel, and sugar for twenty five cents a pound. Pork is as low as six dollars a cwt. The rebel troops are both well fed and well clothed, and the rebels have abundant forage for their horses and mulee Their supply of colfeo is not so plentiful. Tb? rebel money passes current around Marlinsburg, and for its nominal valuo. Strange to say, ther ? is somj Western money also in circulation in the rebel linos, and it also passes without discount. The lady mentions that the news from the great expedition threw a cloud of gloom over the enemy. They were silent upon the sub ject, however, among the Union people; but they used to rush for tho newspapers and read them in gro\j>s. and talk over tho subject among themseh es, wl'h disauiniiit ment stamped upon their faces.
