The Spanish nrmy cams mise rably provided, and had they been compelled to mike the march to tbe capital they would hare arrived there Baked. Many of the eoldiera were barefooted on their return here, and of the few who bad anything on their feet one-half were ehod with Mexican aandals. They are new going en board rapidly. The Beren goela ie freighted and will probably call to-merrow. Large Dumber* of Spanish troope have been marched to ike Mole to-day, to go on board English vessels. Ibe English o(Seers and men are loud In their imprsca. Mens against Com. Donlop for having made such a stupid effer. They do not care for tbe annoyance of the thing, tot to be cooped up with dirty and filthy Spaniards, they ?ay, will breed contagion among their healthy crews With all this they have got to take the Spaniards. General Prim, that marvel of the age, who did more Headers at Tstuaa than Daniel in the lion's den, after his career In the interior, has returned to-day. It is said that he has been eo precipitate on account of a rumor that the Captain General of Cuba did not approve of hlB coarse, and was going to order the detention of tbe ripen ieli force*. I do not know what truth may be in this report. Nearly all the Spanish officers (especially those in the civil service) are rorious against Prim,and H is not improbable that they have started this story. General Prim, at all events, has played a remarkably large figure in this Intervention business for him now le get out of such a email hols; and the man he thought he could crush (and leagued with Sir Cbarlee Wvke to do it) has been the man who has upset them all. To commence to blubber now and cry ??bad faith" will not do. Sir Charles Wvke has re peatedly told the Mexican government that they were anworthy of trust?a faithless, treaty -breaking people, fee Spanish Ambassadors for the last seven years have keen calling every government that got in pow. er all manner of names to be used in the hounds of free spoken diplomacy. The French slalm thoy have broken no faith, except the Allies may sboose to interpret it eo with themselves. They scout tkcideaof having failed in any particular to tbe Mexi cans, and to make it patent to all tbe world they publish their purposes and soatter them to the winds. I enclose you a number of documents which you will find interesting. Ths manifesto of General Almonte is the most important,as being the first sou turned on Mexican soil for Maximilian. Wo arc now to ses the sflbct of thie document on the country, Tbe real effect will,perhaps, corns slow. The thinking people of wealth j fiaro not speak now, and the first to bail the new move* ?ent will be theseorui of tbe land. Theee, 1 suppose, will be employed as contra gutrriUeroi, and as such will relieve W1K>. the march of the French troops. Although 1 say Mte scene of the land will flock to the new standard, ihey will be of the aame material that makes up nine lenths of the constitutional army. Your watch and parse would suddenly disappear in the eompany of either, without any mystery, and your life would be by no It is supposed that ths Frsneh commenced their ad vance on Chkjuihuite last night, and havs to-day passed ths great stronghold. Zaragoxa was in tbe rear sf the French with bis forces, which were variously esti mated at from three to fourteen thousand. Zarag?xa was at Orisaba en ths morning of the 19th with three thou sand men, aad it was sappoeed he was going to make a precipitate march te Chtquihuite, and that if be had any more men they had taken another course. Two to one Ukey got lost, and never found the point they were aim ing for. In a day or so we must have the story of the Orst stronghold of Mexico, aad bow it fell or was left un protected. If the Mexicans are half so koen for spilling lbs last drop of their blood as President Juarez trice to ?.w. out is tbe manifecto I esclose, they wlU now soon have a chance; but be assursd thslr fighting propensities will not cost much blood, aad that Don Benito, with all Mi finely told falsehoods, will be among the first to bolt eat from Mexico, with his old, untiring, make shift Ca binet, who stuck by him llks leeches on his last pil grimage. It is hard to iay whore they will be able to establish ntw. A good custom house Is not to be had; their porte are dangerous. So there will be no alternative but to set ?p in some rich commercial and mineral district for loans. On ths night of the l#th,or early on the morning of the 90th, a terrific norther commeuced blowing, which con tinned with unabated, and, for a time, increased, vigor eH the 90th. Three veceels In the harbor went upou the shoals and wsre lost. One of these was sn American bark?the D. Chaplr, or Boston? in ballast. None of her crew were lost. Another was ths French ship Regulus.of Nautes, in ballast. Nobody lost. The third was a Mexican schooner, loaded with vanII ln, corn aad tobacoo. Nobody b*. During the gale a French war eteemer drifted down upon ths F-ngltsh ship Kssex and carried away her baw sprit. Five men were drowsed from a boat belonging to tbe Spanish frigate Berenguela during the storm, anil a French officer was shot sn one of their vessels. 1 have not been able to get the particulars of this last. General Prim has goue on board ehip to say farewell to hie wlfo, whs, I suppose, will reach Havana with this. Commander Dunlop aad Sir C. Wyke are expected here to-morrow early. The Spaniards are nearly all shipped. Van* Cacs, April 23,18412.

Since the departure of the Roanoke no have received tAlea from Vera Crux to tbe 23d ultimo. The French, Instead of falling back to the Paso Ancboi a? agreed ai tbeSoledad convention, havo pushed on fur ther in tbe direction of the capital. Id fact, blood baa been abed, and tbe ball la fairly opened. A body of Gen. Zaragoza e cavalry, numbering some say eighty and otbers three hundred, made some show of resistance, and were immediately charged upon and put to flight by a few Chasseurs d'AX.-Jcue, whe returned with tweuty pri aonere, Dos idee a umber of arms and horses Tbe reasons given by lie French for ibui advancing are? First?Tbe declaration cr war by tbe Juarez govorn ?eet Second?Tbe assassination of various French soldiers In tbe neighborhood of tbeir encampments. Third?Tbe annoyance caused by various guerillas. Vourtb?Tbe intercepting of all kinds of provisions. A correspondent of La Pretua, of Havana, writing frcm there, says tbe cenqaest of Mexico by tbe French wl'l be a matter of easy achievement. I believe every oas in tbe least acquainted wltb the frightful condition of that country will agree with him. Granting that tbe Mexican is ever so good a soldier, be will find full many a brother Mexican lb the enemy's ranks who will fight just aa well. Already the country has commenced " pronouncing," as it is called, for tbe French ideas, or for Gen. Almonte| whicb Is tbe same thing; and that means a monarchy. 1 believe ElSiglo, anew paper, which has just made its first appearance, and Is intended to represent tha purely Cuban sentiment, says that Prim, by withdraw ing from Mexico, has saved Spain from grave complica tions is America. The plain meaning of this is that the United Stales will sooner or later interpose between Mexico and Europe. The government organ here has said next to nothing oa the subject. Tbe steam frigate Berenguela arrived on Tuesday even' lng from Vera Cruz, with tbe wife and family of General Prim on board. Tbe General does not intend leaving Mexico until tbe laat soldier of bis division shall have left. The Spanish troops brought here by tbe British steamer are loud In their praise of the hospitable manner in which they were treated. The commander of one of the vessels even apologized for being compelled to give the soldiers chocolate every morning Instead or coffee. The poor fellows never tared^one-quarter as well in all their livea before, notwithstanding the chocolate. A correspondent of the Diario says there wore twenty four persons lost belonging to the American and ether vessels which were wrecked at Vara Crux. The Two Flags In Havana, [From the Havana Harald, May 8.J. On Tuesday last several small boats were noticed sail ing around the steamship Columbia, having hoisted on tbelr various masts the flag of the Southern confederacy, and tbe persons on board frequently shouting to thoae on the Columbia, who had flying rrom her gaff the flag of tha United States, "Take down that rag!" Tha marines and other persona on the Columbia, be coming so annoyed at the constant repetition of these taunts, assailed the occupanta of tbe small boats with the various missiles at their bands, and drove them off. A short time after Captain Adams was ordered to appear at the office of the Captain of the Port, and answer to the charge made against persons on his vessel for as sault, which the Captain promptly obeyed, attended by his entire force of marines, who were all clad in their holiday suits. But it seems, after a proper ex planation was made to the gentlemanly Captain of our port,and no one appearing against tbem.tbe parties were dismissed, and the good nutured Captain Adams in vited them to partake of some refreshments.

Proclamation of the Commander-in-Chief of the Army of the Kaet. The treatise agreed to at Soledad on the 19th of Febru ary last, with the allied forces, have beon broken by the Krencb, and, withoet auy eause whatever, they hare provoked us to take up arms. They feign to ofler as a foreign sovereign, and, deeming ne unworthy of the inde pendence which our heroes conquered with their bloed, they look upon us as Imbecile men, easily governed by the power of the bayonet. They deceive themselves, and forget that oppression Is as nothing against a free people; nor can they be conquered by force. Nothing can iniiml date nor crush a people who, proud of their history, have scarcely seen a year since they reconquered their liber ties; for sucba people, having a conviction of their dig nity, will know how to repel so bold an aggression, and will add another page to their brilliant annals. Mexico ac cepts war: she has not provoked it, hut she accepts It with honor, and she is proud to know that she has faith fully fulfilled her word whtrb was pledged In tbe pre iimiuary couferiiniee. Her faith has been derided, and the responsibilities' of war will fall upon tbe nation that so unjustly snd without resson attempts to enslave ber. Nations, tbe whole world over, will do us justice, if for tune should be against us. If we perish gloriously in our defence, posterity will gather up our naniee and imitate our example. Kngl.tnd and Spain, with more Justice and less Ml. gence, have left our soil, and avoided complicity In au undertaking in which the) never sought to mtrude their arms. Mom im|>artial, they were soon deceived con cerning the coaditiou in which we were found, and they did not hesitate in paying to our tl:i?( the tribute which is due to It. They deserve our thanks for such honorable conduct. New sacrifices now impend over us; new fatigues we mast endure, and new ban lee must wn fight Hut, before tbe sublime idea of our liberty, uothiug can make us quail. Death itself must tie indifferent to us. and, abovo all things?absolutely al.ove everything?in this moment, we aheuld have no other thought than tbe wel fare of our unfortunate country, and no other object but ber defence. Courage and union, and there can be no doubt of triumph. The degenerate sen of tbe immortal Mareki, with two or three ether spurious Mexicans, unworthy of the air which they breathe, accompany tbe invader, and, with delusion, hope to form a party tliMt will aid them in their unjust designs, but in this a so I bey deceive themselves. The people?the true people, who so of ten have shed their blood in delenoe of their holiest rights?regard them with indignation and despiee them, because they know what to hope from those s|*culatote who, iu their delirium, have not hesitated to place the severelgnty of Mexico at tbe feet of Maximilian. Ignorant of recent events, they do not knew that the people who have de scended from Hidalgo never shun tbe battle, and that they know how to fail in a manner worthy of their origin rather than consent that their prccious liberty, which luucust so many sscritioee, should be snatched from thein with Impunity It has been my fortune to be tbe one first te lead the national army te victory, and I am animated by the firm hope that their efforts and devotion will M seconded by all Mexicans, from whom I have received proofs of their loveof country and of their self abnegation in momenta of misfortuns.

Citizens?At this time, when the government of the ro public, true to the obligations it has con trailed, has pre pared to send commissioners to the c'ty ofOn/abi, to open negotiations with the representatives of the allied Powers, according to the preliminaries of Xoledad, an incideut, as unMpocled an unusual, transpired to delay the probability of a satis factory arrangement of the pending questions, which, with anxiety, tho government prewired, hoping thui right, truth and justice will triumph, ready to iicoede to ail demands founded in equity. From the documents that have been made public, you will see that the plenipotentiaries of Great Britain, France and Spain have declared that they could not come to an understanding regarding the interpretation of the Con vention of London, of the 31st of Ootober, and they have given it up In order to operate separately and indepen dently. You will see also that the plenipotentiaries of tho Em peror of the French, in defiance of the solemn treaty in which they recognized the legitimacy of the constitu tional, and in which they bound themselves to treat only with it,pretend that they have heard irotu a spurious son of Mexico, subject to the justioe of the tribunals for his crimes against the country, placing in doubt the fact that tliey solemuly|recognlzed a few days ago, breaking not only the convention of London, but also the prelimi naries of IA Solodad, leaving unfuiUlled the agreement with Mexico, and also those which united them with England and Spain. The goverumont of Mexico, which is consoious of its legitimacy, having derived its power from the free and spontaneous election of the people, which mistaitis the institutions of the Kepnbiic, defending itself with con stancy, which is invested with all the pewers of national representatien, and which appreciates among the first or its duties the maintenance of the independence and sovereignty of the nation, feeling for the safety of the dignity of the republic, if it will descend so low as to dis cuss points that penetrate the same sovereignty and the same independence that cost so many heroic effort* to conquer. The government of the ropublic, always and yet ready and prepared, solemnly declares to exhaust all concilia tory and honorable means of an adjustment, in view of the declaration of the French plenipotentiaries, cannot and will not assume any other mods of pr ocedure than to oppose forcc by force, and to defend the nation front tho unjiist aggression that now threatens her. The responsi bility of all the disasters that may occur wiU fail on those who without any motive or pretext have violated the faith of the international conventions. j The government of the republic, recollecting which is the century in which we live, as also the princi pies sustained by the civilized world, what respect is due to the nationalities, very Justly hnpo that if there Is any sentiment of justice in the councils of the Emperor of the French, that sovereign, who has received such false information relative to the situation ef Mexico, will reject the line of negotiations on which his plenipotentia ries have entered, and the aggressions which they in tend, against a people as free, as sovereign, as indepen dent as the other sovereign Powers of the earth. As soon as hostilities shall be commencod, all the peaceful resident foreigners in this country will remain under tho protection and sanction of the laws; and t^ie government desires the Mexicans to extend to ill of them, and also to the French, the hospitality and consideration that they always enjoyed in Mexloo, resting assured that the au thorities will exert themselves wich energy against all those who, taking advantage of these considerations, will correspond with disloyalty in aiding the invader. During the war will be observed the rules of rights of the (>eople by the army and tho authorities of the repub lic. In regard to Great Britain and Spain, placed now in a situation that their governments could not foresee. Mexico is ready to comply with their compromises as soon as the circumstances will permit?that is to say, to regulate, by means of negotiations, the pending reclamations, to satisfy the claims of justice and to give sufficient guarantees for the future. But, above all, tho government of the republic will comply with iu duty to defend its independence, to punish the foreign aggressor, and to accept the struggle which has been provoked, relying on the unanimous efforts of the Mexicans, and being satisfied that sooner or later the cause of right and justice must triumph. Mexicans I the supreme magistrate of the nation, elected by your free suffrages, Invites you all to second his efforts In defence of your Independence. Rrelylng for this purpose on all your resources, ou your blood, rest assured that, fol lowing the counsels of patriotism, we will be able to con solidate the work of our fathers. I hope that you will prefer all kinds of misfortune and disaster to the disdain and opprobrium of losing your indepcudence.or to consent that foreigners shall destroy your institutions and interfere with your internal allairs. Let us have laith In the justice of our cause, and let us have faith in our pioper efforts, and unitedly we will save the independence of Mexico, causing tho triumph not only of our county but the principles of respect and the inviolability of the respect of the sovereignty of na tions.

Foreigu exchange for the steamer closed at 113% a 114 lor bankers' bill-, with a general indis position on the part of bankers to sell at the lower rate, ami an equally decided disinclination on the part of the public not to give the higher one. (iold fell at one time this morning to 102%, but afterwards rallied to 1027a, closing 102% bid. The fall iu gold since Monday has been caused by the nales of operators for a fall, who borrow the coin for delivery, and look to their interest account to bring them out. It is under stood that the short sales of gold are less pro fitable than they have been. A good many of the seller-sixty contracts are maturing, and there is a pretty lively inquiry for the precious metal for delivery. Merchant* who have been buyers of coin on Ion# option are taking it np, laying it aside and borrowing on it at 4 percent. This is by far the cheap< way of buying gold. At the commencement oi business to-day there v as a general desire to realize profits, caused iuainly by General McClellau'n telegram received last evening. Government stocks, State stocks and railway shares were all pressed for sale at a slight decline from yesterday's jirice. At the de cline, however, new purchasers came in, and the market rallied. During the morning board the news of the victory at Williamsburg was re ceived, and, subsequently, the details ol the fight at New Orleans and the intelligence from North Carolina. These successive favorable re ports led to a g neral demand for stocks, and the decline of the morning was at once recovered. Between the boards the market was firm. At the second board prices were fully maintained, and the market closed strong. Governments opened to day at 101% for the coupons, rose to 101% by midday, and closed 102 bid. Seven-thirty notes sold in tho morning at 102, aud closcd at 103%. At the lirst board the decline in Tenncssees was in Missouris %, in Pacific Mail %, in New York Central %, in Krie %, Erie preferred 1%, in Hudson %, in Michigan Southern %, in Michigan Central 1%, in Illinois Central %, in Galena %, in Toledo %, &c. At the second board coupon sixes rose %, Pacific Mail %, New York Central %, Hudson %, Illinois Central %, Toledo %, Rock Island %? The most popular shares of the day ap- I pear to be Book Island, Toledo, Erie, Illinois Central, Galena and Hudson River. The enormous increase in the earnings of the latter road during the months of April and March last?amounting to something like $200,000?has attracted the atten tion of speculators. The stock touched 60 when the road was earning considerably less money than it is doing at present, and when there was no paper currency and no speculative excitement.
