THE ENGLISIT STATEMENT OF TITS CASE, The British public and press regard the r ciion of their government, m determining on au armed lut jrvrmtiou agai?*t Mexioo, with much satisfaction. They argue that it 1* bvh time for England to bestir her?clf" f'T the pur pose of putting it atop to the upoiialicm ae<: cruettio* !b flictod on British subjects by the feeble brigand! whs carry ou what is called tho pnvernment 01 Mexico, The titstory of modem times, they iay, afford: no oncli icmtauoe of fl.igi! >us breach of ' eatrs and thorough disr<^\.:il of national and othor eng.. , enicntg as have csen presented i>y the conduct pursac 1 in that wealthy b t dlaorganlted fejiubllc. Thirty yes. a Fiaoe the n'-wly fnrmcd gftrern ennnt o( Mexico entered lr to a commorciM treaty with Kuglund, under which pt nectlon of the persons and pro perty of British s.ilij.'i ts wag gappoacu to bo guaran teed. l'pon the faith of these engagements, voluntarily cntored into on thu part o[ the Mexicans, Britinh subjects invested a laige amount of capital, and lent to the government a sum of about sixty millions of dollars. During tho yearn which immediately tailored the achievement of ber Independence in 182S, It was scarcely to be expectod that the new republic would have been free from those occasional interruptions and political dis turbances to which all young governments aro liable, and many of the hindrances to the operations of commerce which wore occasionally experienced during the struggles of political parties wore patiently endured, in the reasona ble expectation that they would prove but of temporary dnration, and that eventually order apd consolidation -would take place. Theso anticipations have, unfortunate ly, nevor been reulized. The condition of Moxtue him gone on from bad to worse, and to political agitation has succecded a stai* of oompleto social disorganization V'or the last three years '.here has been nothing like a government in the country, and thuae who have assumed to exorcise supreme powers hare been among the foremost In acts of lawlessnees and fpMwr/, '0??? expended the performance of obiija t tvag ? m>n* ?" I solemnly entered into toward forolgn creditor*; they repeatedly seized tho funds specifically approprlaie > erc.iitors, and committed outrages against right and jus tice without numbor. A recent leltsr from Mexico, published In an English paper, contains the following passage in allusion to the atrocities everywhere being committed throughout t ?? ropubllc Events in their peculiar line are and becoming more notorious in this country. ThK (October) they have bien somowhat raised in oha uUer from those of the last, Instead of k dnappln and holding tor ransom, wo bavo had, as leu Ung topics, open, barefaced plunder of entire populati ?a, varied on some occasions by wholesale destruction of property and mas acre. Instead of only lice . < savage warfare iu tho murder of opp wing ohiufs, we lmve beard tho cry of "Death to foreigners" ralsod, and . jaen the mangled remains of one victim carried ^ the grave, and foreigners In consequenco drawing near U> tacn otbor and arming for self defence. Witbin a single twolvemonth as many as twenty-throe Englishmen have been murdered, and several othurs, in cluding the Captain of the Valorous, a British ship-of-war, narrowly esc iped with their lives. To suoh lengths w&3 this conduct carried that the Bullish and French Minis ters felt themselves compelled to break off - all diplomatic Intercourse with the chaotic Mxlcan government. Thore Is no excuse whatever, argues the linglisb press, I to be offered for those flagitious acts and persistent dis honesty of the Mexican republic. They have a country rich beyond most others in all that can give wealth and prosperity to a pooplo. Fortunately placed as are many of tho South American republics, so far as tho gills of na ture are concerned, there is not oue which is so favorably circumstanced as this " wretched and misgoverned Mexico." During a few years or the last century tho country affords sn instauce of the great reverses whic may bo there realized. Its mines are more productive than those of other regions, because they arc more ac cessible. The refusal to liquidate the just debts due to foreigners does not, say tho English claimants, arise from I any lack of the means of doing so; nor m the blamo j of the dishonest and nefarious conduct of successive rulers bo laid upon the Mexican people genorally. The great bulk Of the people llnd themselves i*>worless in the bauds of the brigands and rubbers, who seize ujion tho I reins of government, und who sanction, when they do not originate, deeds of violence and treachery which are a disgrace to the present century. The opinion that it has bocome the .Inly of the government or this country (England) to inter loro for the protection of life and property is one which I1". wide .pread, "*.d will meet \i itb the hearty support of tli I'riti'h iieople. In sending an armed rorco to the Gulf, tho lulling merchants of London, Liverpool, Manchester and Glasgow have i urged tho government to It ; and, as one of the leading English papers says, " tho govern ment which has at its head the same noblo lord who employed British force Tor the protection or British interests in the affair of Don l'acifico? whose boast it is that the prestige or the old Roman shall cling to the Eng lishman in every land? could hardly have refused to lu terfero in the much larger case of Moxlcan repudiation robbery and murder." HISTORICAL BtntOSPKCT OF THE CAUSES OF THB ALLIANCE. The Idea or an armed European expedition agalnat Mexi co, for tho alleged purpose of enforcing payment of the debts due to the British bondholders, and obtaining repa ration for violence said to have beon done in the plunder of money from the house of tbe British Minister In Mexi co city ? was openly broached in the London journals in the month or December, 1860, and found much Uvor in the eyes of tbe people. It was then averred that the principal of the cash loaned by Englishmen to tlicMexi cans amounted to flrty-two millions or American dollars, and that these foreign creditors had agreed to accept of a reduced rate of intcrost? three per cent, the mero product of existing investments in consols? In consideration of a guarantee that the payments ehould be conducted with regularity in future. I s>me short t ime previously , Com m inder Aldham . or tbe British war steamer Basilisk, reached tho Guir with ordota to look after the paymeut or this dobt. He found Vera Cruz, with other towns on the coast, In possession of Juarez trnd bis Cabinet, tiooeral Miramon holding power in Mexico elfy as President or tho republic. Although the English Charge, Mr. Matheir, was accredited to the Miramon government, the capUtt ot $hc Basilisk entered into financial negotiations with Juarez al Verw frus, and obtained from him drafts to the amount or aboil? million or ddlat* Tor the use and benefit of the bond holder*. Tbcae draffs could be cashcd in Mexico fliry nniv, nnd thither they were fstt, addressed to the repre ?gi;tiV? ?f <fyg?n Victoria. Tins gentleman had them converted into dollars but here ho encountered a serious difficulty. Owing to the state of tho country be could not forward so much specie to the coast for export with any dsRf,e of safety, nor coald beget it insured except at such ,,, enormous rate of premium as would render the bargain ruinous. lie therefore placcri the cash in the ??strong room' ?f the official "residence, secured it with lock and key affixing the seal of Croat Britain cn tbo door. Finding soon after that he could not maintain dlplo mat- relations with Miramon. Mr. Charge Mathow with drew from Mexico city and retired to .lalapa. This event took place towards the close of TttCO. Scarcely hid the minister withdrawn wheu a party of men, acting uuder government authority, maruhad to his late residence, forced opeo the doors, entered the -strong room' and took away the million or dollars. Siuce i hat period a general irritation against Mexic o 1ms ( prevailed among the capitalists of England, and the hostile leeliug has been gradually oommnnlcared to iho masses by means of letters, cd.tonsl articles and reported speeches published in the pr-s.-. The bondholders ?s ^erted that, this money would have paid them ono balf vearly dividend at least, and that by the action of the Mexican Executive they were deprived of this nt a mo went when tho payments for fourteen hall years remain ed due. WHAT FRANCE ALLEGES. The government of franco, in behalf of its treasury , and the pockets of some French capitalists, claimed at, this time a sum of money from the Mexicans exei>cdi"g by a little one-half of that duo to the Koglirh creditor*. This cotild not be had, or would not be fiven if In hand; go thnt we find France had the same sort of financial indict merit against tbe people of tbe^republic lis Kngland. i'mding the public mind of both countries in au ozcited tone on the matter, the English and French governments commenced to seriously discuss the proposition of A FORHIGK PROTECTORATE for Menieo. In the month or December, 1K60, Napoleon put forward the plea of this money duo . and payment refused, to Krcnch subjects, while both part ice. perhaps, agreed that the moment of the realization of civil com motion and the approach of civil war in the United State* was a most favorable one for them to make a bold at tempt for the obliteration of the "Monroe doctrine,'' as w< U us for obtaining a foothold on the continent) bulb in Mexico and the States of Central Ameru a. Tbe scheme was rapidly matured, both in 1-ondon ami ; l'aris. It was made known to the government in Wash- ! mgten early iu January of 1861 , and itb outlines revealed to the people of I nited ?tjKes through the N?w Yobs Huui.n, in tbe form of a special communication from that city, published in our columns on the 26th of that month. Juarez ir*? thon la full power in Mexico city , lie having entered the capital on the 11th of .lenuary. Whit was ten ied the ' church partjr" was dispersed, utid the " foreigners" w?re highly elated. None exhibited this feel inf. rnoro openly than the French residents, a?, evi. deuce of which we tnay uenUon that the subjects of Na poleon etil 'rtairod Juarea, General Orieja the other members of tbe Cabinet, and all tbeetfcbiities of tbe "constitutional pa^Ti" atajrraiid benqnet on tliel.'i h of January. Pr?cldetit Juarez was greatly elated at all this, while Miromun Bad from the neighborhood in com pany with Inidro Diaz, his chief adviwer. Diaz was arretted soon afterward*. Miramon himself making a wonderful esi ? by a bold dash into I he woods. Pia< was senteaced tote shot; but his execution was p<*t .puned in censequencc of appeal* made to .luar?i by the wlfeof Miramon, who wailed on him personally w itb this intention. THE INSULT TO SPAIN. At this period the real difficulty with Spain may be said to have commenced in Mexico. j On the 12th of January President .1 usees suddtnly sent their passports to the Spanish Ambassa dor. Senor Pacbeco; tbe Pope's fcunu<<, sod tit* romteters of tbe republics of Ecuador and Gua temala. The dismissal of tbe lost three named gan lltmen circled very little excitement, but the course adopted towards the Spanish Minister produced quite a furor in the city. The Spaniards lasted themselves Into a porfeol rage, and declared that the "insult ' given by Juarez to the repre outat . ve of tbe Quean was tantamount to r. declaration of war against old 8p?n herself. Juarez no* made an eCTort to recall the passports; but Senor Pacbeco, of Spain, absolutely refused to return. U will thus he seen U>M tliq blow timed bj jaarjj at the "church party," us It wan termed, In the person of the Spanish Ambassador, as \ve!l fin a claim of debts duo unto the Spanish convention, afforded Queen Isabella a pretext for joining with England and France tn an/ fu ture operations against Mexico Thus, in Jauuary last, the influencing ca'tses urging these three Euroi>ean powers to action against that coun try may be claused thus: ? Ej.tji.ahd. ? Tho demands of her subjects for a stringent collection of the moneys due to them under government protection, 08 well aa tho vindication of lior authority, outraged by the attack on and "robbery" of the house of bur Minister in tlia oity of Mexico. Kiuirtm ? A desire to have the debts du? by Mexico, both to her subjects and the government, paid ni>?<'dily, and before England would exhaust the revenues of l"? reimbllc in satisfaction of bnr own claims. Si'ain? Iniiaued by tho dismissal of her Ambassador by Juarez, wishing to heal her wounded honor, insure tho safety of Uor Kubjt^'ls, and obtain payment of moneys; while it may bo .safely asserted that the whole of Tbs Turk* Forkkin Powrrs thought the timo tni'Mt opportune for a demonstration to l>? rau'ie, with tho ulterior objoct of preventing the turritoiial expansion of the United Stales, as well aa impugning, u not violating, our territorial Integrity. POLICY OP MEXICO WHEN ACCUSED. J BRITISH PROPOSITION TO TUB JUAREZ GOVERNMENT. England moved drat, and moved on the spot. On the 17th of January last Mr. Matliow. the English Charge, proposed to Juarez that government should ray back the EnglUli money roferrod to above within sixty Ave days, apologize for its seizure ? as he hod now ilio chief authority ? and roprlmand Gonecal Garza for haviug taken very latoly at Tatnpico another sum surrendered to the English Consul by General Degollado. Mr. Matliew was still at Jalapa, and Juarez ? moved maiuly by the ad vlco of Senor Ooainpo, his Minister of Finan< "?paid little if any attention to his plan of adjustment , and so the matter may be said to have been "laid over" tor solution at a future period. A CHANGE IN TIIE MEXICAN CABINET. Mexico in the mountline uoutinued agitated aud convulsed as usual. The advent of Juarez to supreme power brought no peaco to tho country; ho wo find that about the 1st of February, 1861, ho was nominally at the head of affairs in Mexico city, while Marquez, M ia, Cobos and other military men carried on the war in various provinces, and '/.ulouga proclaimed himsolf President somewhere in Oaxac*. Certain acts of Juarez soon rondered him un popular; so ho changed his Cabinet as a means of official safety. The NEW MTNJ 3TKB8 wero Foreign Affair? Zarco Var Goiizale* Ortega. Justice Ramirez 1'ublic Worts AU7J? Treasury I'rleto. Government Ogazou. It was thought that this selection would have formed a good working Cabinet, if not a very strong one, and tho cry of the foreign creditors for compulsory pressure on Mexico abated in consequence. CHANGE OF THE GOVERNMENT AMD A NEW PRESIDENT. The government was not stable, however, and an election for President and Deputies to Con gress was ordered. The result of the con test was tho elevation of Senor Lerdo de Tejada to tho office of chier magistrate. This gentleman bad re sided in the United titates for a considerable period, and was reputed, by the American and other foreign resi dents in Mexico, to be the most distinguished btutesnian of whom the country could boast, and the liberal iileas of government which he contracted in this country were very serviceable to him in his new station. During his resi 'once here his chief desire was to bocome intimately aoipinintcd witb our laws, institutions and language, and his career ?s Minister of Public Works and Secretary of the Treasury under the Juarez administration in Vora Cruz main pod him as a man of more than ordinary ability. His cordial desire was always to reconcile Moxic > and the United State.', and to develops those grand sources of wealth, prosperity and intelligence which, whon properly understood, would, as he was convinced, securely bind the two nations together. THE EX-PRESIDENT ALLIES HIMSELF WITH SPAIN. FLIGHT OF MIRAMON FROM MEXICO. Mil anion, at this period, was fleeing from his country, and resolvod to go into exile. After his osciipe to the woods from Mexioo city, detailed above, he turned towards Vera Cruz, and on his Journey met Senor Pacheco, the dismissed Ambassador of Spain, with a number of Mexican bishops, who were driven from their sees for alleged treason *g*T"jT Juarez and the "liberal" party. The sufferers Joint* company, and reached Vers Cruz in Safety, Miramon preserving a strict disguise. They reached Vara Cruz on Sunday, the 2Tth of January, the party including Senor Paofceco, the Pope's Nuncio, the late Ministers from Ecuador and Guatemala and the Archbishop of Mexico. They were immediately n Wiled by the populace , who pelted them with stones, and sought refuge in the Consulates of theTnited States aud Fr.mce, the bishops rushing, for the most part, to the flag of America. while the ex-Ambosaador of Spain shel tered under that of Franco. Miramon concealed himself in the French Consulate, and embarked soon afterwards, with Senor Pacheco, for another land? General Miramon going on board the vesse' clothed in the uniform of n French naval officer, which prevented his recognition by the )>eople. He was accom panied by Madame Miramon, a very accomplished lady. MIRAMON ARRIVES IN CUBA. Tbsnext news of this distinguished party reported Us arrival in Havana, the fact being announced thus in the Jhario ilr la Marina of the 5th of February: ? ''A littlo before puiu et yesterday evening her Majesty's (Spanish) steamer Valm-ro, from Vora Cruz, entered our harbor (Havana), having on board his Excellency Don .1. Fran cico Pacheco, late Minister to Bfexico, with the pmonnel of the legation; the Nuncio of his IJoline.'.i, Mon.signor Clement i, Archbishop of Damascus; General Miguol Mlra mon,and other |iersi?nages of distinction." REACTIONARY POLICY OF THE GENERAL? WHAT HE TOLD THE SPANIARDS. One in Havana, Miramon lost no time In exciting the Spaniards against the new government of hts native land, and, whether justly or not, began to lay the foundation of the preseut position of Spain in tha tripartite alliance, as a means of avengement on his opponents or persecutors. As a preliminary, we find the folio wing publication, iu pplreii, no doubt, by the ex-ruler, in the Dairio de la Ma rina of Havana, of the 7th of February: ? F-normous^quantities of silver and valuable ornaments, gold, precious stonec and sacred vessel* have been taken from the churches in the capital (Mexico city). From the Cathedral alma ihe quantity is estimated at more thun a million of dollars: lor from that beautiful tempi." six enormous wagon loads ol' rich jewels and ornaments had been taken, wonders cf ai t; while from the sanctuary of Guadalupe they had takou even the pold frame of ibe pic lure of the Virgin and the valuable balustrade of thecbau cel of the Colegiats, which v. as of solid silver. JUAREZ TURH6 TOWARDS THE UNITED STATES. MEXICO DRAWS CLOSER TO THE UNITED STATES ? A i NEW AMERICAN MINISTER RECEIVED BY THE PRESI DENT, WHO DESIGN ATEH AMERICANS AS THE "CIVI I.I/.ERS" OF THE CONTINENT. While Kxglaud, France and Spam were either indulging in spleen or fomenting a bad reeling agsttrt Mexico, the hood of the republic was seeking to draw closer to the Unite* States ifi the bouds or diplomatic and democratic^ friendship. TUe Hon. John B.

QtTEIN VIC* TORIA HKCOON1ZKS Jl'AHKZ, AND A88RKTH HKR IN TEREST IN THE " INDEPENDENCE," " NATIONALI TY" AND " PROSPERITY" OF MEXICO. In a short time after the presentation of Mr. Weller England fully recognized tbo Juarez government, and proclalmod liorsolf satisflod concerning tbo " money robbery" JU>4 other international matters. Mr. Mathew, her Majesty's Charge d'Affiiirfii, relurneJ Id Mf*ico city from Jalapa on the 16th of February. He was accompa nind by Captain Aldbam, R.

From this dato the difficulties botwoon the English and Mexican governments, growing out of the Infringement of the rights of British subjects resident in Mexico by offi cers of the constitutional army, were looked on as satis factorily settled. On the 26th of February Mr. Mathew had an audience of Juarez, at which be delivered the following OFFICIAL RtimBII 8PRX0B. Sm ?

FINANCIAL STATEMENT. Immediately after this the Mexican Minister of Financo published the annexed statement of the items end grow amount of tbe FOREIGN DEBT OF THE REPUBLIC and Mexico's liabilities thus:?

THK FIRST Ol'KN CALL FOR FOREIGN INTERVENTION. The London Times of the 31st of July sounded tho first trumpet, which roused the othor two Powers ? France and Spain? to tho idea of an armed intervention in Mexico. The Times set out its argument as follows: ? When I/ird Aberdeen und M. Guizot, somo sixtoon years siuce, were for uniting to preserve the balance of power on the American continent, and to savo Texns aud Mexico from falling into the hands of the ambitious Anglo Saxon republic, they liula thought that a time was to come when numbers oi the.r own countrymen would ba willing, for the cake of morality and humanity that the Incorporation 8l;OUld take plai e, wliilo the 1'uitoJ PUUs would be incapable or tbo long meditated a^grc s Slou.

D0N. JTfAN I)B BOURBON BKPUMATES A THRONE. The idea set afloat by the London Time* was dissipated to some extent by a letter from one of the candidates thus "informally" nominated for tho throne of Mexico. Don Juan de Bourbon, writing to the editor on the 10th of September, says:? Allow mc, since the channels which spread the report are closed to me, to publicly disclaim in your column' any thought or desirr "f the honor assigned me. Heir of the Spanish throne by my birthright, I hope yet to be Kin* by the election of the people. But for me the throne of MTV0 hHi fUfrV/wnr. I do not look upon mmelf as a party to the Plan de Yavala, whereby it was proviiled that a Sjxinish prince should succeed to the power then lost to the mother country. I am unknown In Mexico, and have no adherents, and but few personal friends, among any of the parties who divide this distracted country; so that I c?uld only hope to occupy lt? throne by the support of foreign bayonets. Such a course would bo utterly repug nant to my Ideas. TEE INTERNAL DIVISIONS OF MEXICO FAVOR AN INVA SION? HOISTING OF TUK SPANISH FLAO BT THE CHURCH PA RTF. On those matters we were informed by a special letter, dated on the Mth of September, to the Herald, from Mexico city: ? The French and Spanish Ministers stand aloof from all contending parties here, and, although a strong faction of political intriguers favor British influence, the majority of all classes hit of a different opinion. The Spanish flng has been unfurled by some of the clergy Cor cms in the Sierra: the Vice Consul, when inter rogated on the subject, declares be is entirely ignorant of the motive of this net, which is significant when placed by the side of tho fact that a largn number of Spanish officers have procured positions in tho army of tho clergy, and overy day increaros tho number of applicants. These movements certainly look as if their object was no other than to obtain a supremacy over the Mexicans, and to re peat in Mexico the same game which has born enacted In ?t. iNnningo. The fact that some of these chiefs have raiFid iti > Spanish flag is evidence sufficient to direct the attention of other Powors to the movements of Spain in this quarter. THE TREATY DEBATED AND EXPLAINED. AfJJTATION FOB AM ARMKT* INTERVENTION. During the month of Octobor the question of on allied treaty t.galust Mexico waa warmly and simultaneously agitated In London, Paris and Madrid, and the London Post? sorernmont organ? of the 19th of that month, an nounced the near accomplishment of the convention to lli is effect to the people In the following terms: Wo believe we may state that .subject to the terms or a convention between England, France and Spain, which i.< lik' ly to bo concluded in tho course of a few dnys, the expedition which is about to ba despatched to Moxico will consist of three tjuadjvm, respectively furnished hj th-cov tracting parties. It is understood that, for the purpose of nflbrding Immediate and efficient protection to the live* properly of foreigners resident in Mexico, her Catholic Majesty am! the Emperor of the French have iletermined cUo to dcsrntrh a military force, consisting of si* thousand, men, of which five thousand will be contributed by Spain and one thousand bu France. About the same moment the Paris organ of the church jiarty? the Patrie, the ConatUutiimnel, and other French journals, as well as the Cirrespondencia and Auto grafa of Madrid, canvassed the matter in a similar strain, the writers bojng unanimous in opinion that the move ment would result in the most Importaut consequences to the political relations existing between Europe and Ame rica. Indeed, the Pari? Drbatx of the early part of No vember, in an article ou the subject, asserted: It Is like retaking possession, at least moraVy to, of Ame rica by Europe. It constitute* a real infrinaem,-nt on the fttmnus drclrine of Jfonroe, which pretended to interdict Euroj e forever from exercising any influence otter the des tinies a f Amr ica. No one can, in fact, doubt thai the Tate of Mexico now depend?, more or less, on the three Interfering I'owers; their presence alone may lead to revolu tion' wh ich their sword ? rr.uld support, in case of need. Thus Mexico enturs on a crisis the issue of which iB in the hands of Europe. THE SPEKCH OF TUB QUEEN OF SPAIN, Delivered at tho opening or tho Cortes, in Madrid, ex plains tho project in the following words: (jKNTt.EMitN Smkatokh axd Utrimss?

With thi* objeet my government hud made tho nocessary prepara tions, when two great nations found that thijy had to complain or acts or violence on tho part of the Mexican authorities. Our wrongs were ommon; our action should be joint. My govornmont desired as much. Proper steps ror this purpose were at tirst favorable; but the result did not. correspond with the desires of the other two nations. Subsequently Franco, England and Spain arranged together to obtain that satisfaction which was duet* them, and to prevont. the repetition of offences which scandalized the world and outraged humanity. Tims th* designs will be accomplished the execution or which has been the constant object of my government. At the proper time an account will be rendered to you of the convention which, with this object, has been signed by the representatives or the three Powers. TEXT FOR THE INVADING FORCES. TUB TitrPAKTlTK TKEATT. The public mind being thus prepared, the paper was signed in I<ondon on the 3l3t of Octobor. We read in tho Paris Monileur of November 13, that the convention by which France, England und Spain have agreed to combine their forces, in view of a common ac tion toobtain from M^.tIco tho satisfaction due to them, signed in London on tho 31st of October. We aro assured, although we cannot absolutely guaran tee the fact, that the conditions of the convention are very nearly as rollows: ? The convent ion consists or five or six article* at most. Tho tin t stipulates the common action or tho tbreo Powers. TIij otti rs regulate the modo or intervention. The throe Powers wiH each tend an equal naval force. Two thirds or th? land forces will be rurnishod by tho Spanish army of tho Antilles. The allied forces will occupy Vera Cruz and all such points on the coast us to them may seem necessary. This done, they will address lhemselVcs to tho constituted authorities of Mexico. If that government concedes right, the commanders or the expeditionary corps will submit the agreement for the ratittcatlon of ther government, holding the places occupied until there be a complete set tlement. Tho occupation will bo made in the name or the three Power?, whnlovor may be the number or the occupying forces. At tho beginning an effort will be made to im pose a suspension of hostilities on the belligerent parties in Mexico. Tho three Powers agree not to occupy permanently any point of the territory , and not to obtain any exclusivead vantagc in Mexico. They also eniiago to leave Mexico entirely freetochoos* hor own form of government. England gavo up tho con ditions which sho wished inserted in the treaty ? viz: ? that tho threo Powers should pledge themselves not to acccpt tho throne of Mexico for any princo of tholr reign ing families: if the monarchical form provails the Powers pledge themselves not to use intervention to the profit of any prince in particular. The London Ga:etlee, of November 16, publishes the treaty in regard to tho combined expedition of England France and Spain. I It is signed by l.ord John Russell, Signor Tfiluritz and M. Flahault. H has five articles. The fourth article says, that after the signatur** to the treaty was made, a copy of it was^communicated to the government or the United States, and that the Ministers or the contracting Powers at Washington aro authorized to conclude it separately or ?ollectiveljr with {'resident Lincoln. As delay, however, would jeoparadiae the suc cess of the expedition, the Commissioners operations are not to be deferred for obtaining the accession or the Uni ted States to the traity niter the forces have assembled in the neighborhood o t Vera Cruz DESIGNS OF THE CATHOLIC POWERS.

As tlilefaet Is of the high><it importance in (oncction with the demonstration, foreshadowing as It dees ulterior deigns on the part of the** sovereigns, wc may stal* here that we have assurance*, derived from trustworthy sources in Madrid, that such a paper has been already drafted atid ratified, i'hie article provides: ?

The soil is poor and sandy, with hara and there some arable tracts. The corn raised ia Insufficient for home consumption, but wine ta ralaed for exportation. The other product? are flax, hemp, saffron, capera and cheese, which, with wool, honey, wax, iron, lead, copper and (Inn marble, com poaa the principal export*. Th<- impot ts consist of wheat , all, woven fabrica and other manufactured goods, tobacco and colonial prod' ce; but the Inland has none of that commer cial activity displayed during Its possettsou by the Eng lish in the last eentury. The island ia aub-dlvidad into four districts, and the principal towna are Port Maho* and Cindadela. It was taken by tha English in 1708, aal ceded to tha French in 1760. It waa restored to Great ' Britain in 1763, and eventually annexed to Spain by tha treaty of Ami mih, in 180S.

Judging from the tone of the British press, as well M the spirit which Uree the Spanish mind towards an at tempt at modern transatlantic conquests, we can hardly doubt that the three Powers now eutertaln ulterior designs, involving the very indepondemo of the constitu tion, as well as a change in the form of the government ^The'l^ndon Shipping Gazette? an organ of the mercan tile community of England? remarked in a recent num ber on this part of the subject:?

But when redress fa refused, not only may the ?'ships, vessels and gooda" of the refuting State be con demned, but towns andatrong places may be attacked, seized and occupied until full and complete sattefaotio. haa been afforded.
