An anonymous sheet baa been circulated through the city complaining of tbe nonpayment or several creditors en tbe civil list Tbe document waa shown to bis Ma jesty by a member of the Imperial household, and its perusal gave bitn great pain and caused not a little sur prise on his part His Majesty st once gave orders that a commission be intrusted with the payment of outstanding debts and with the inquiry roadu* **"? ? tba conduct of those parties who had been in charge of tbe imperial household affairs. Tho Emperor has placed an his silver plate In the hands of the commission, so that tbs creditors of the civil list may be jald out of the proceed* of lie sale, i long as tbe Slate has failed to pay them out of the public revenue, owing to present circumstance* of tbe country. Moreover nls Majesty has givsn notice that If this were not sufficient to pay the still outstanding claims, his private property might he disposed of until all be paid. He is determined to spurs no sacrifice in favor of tho parties referred to in the complaint. The commission, by order of his Majesty, is now busy in carrying out the generous orders ot the Emperor, and In investigating whatever abuses mav have been com mitted at -any timo or by any party witb respect to this subject The following Is a copy of tha anonymous sheet shove referred to:? still Asonraa raoov or sternal. Dtauitx. It has reached our ears that numbers of our poor arti sans received draft* an the Vera Crux Custom House in payment, and that they were forced to pay down In cash bonuses to obtain these drafts For Instance, a mechanic, having a claim of eight bundled franco bad to pay two handred francs down in cash to the procurator of tbe palace, and then be received a draft (worthless) for one tbouruod francs. W* had before no Idea of so fltt i fine a way, not only to avoid paying debts, but even to get cash out or creditors. When any private individual draws or ac cepts a bill, If not paid It it protested, and the courts compel him to make payment out of the pro ceeds of whatever proporty or valuables tbe poor devil may have in hand. Why, then, should there be dMter ent weights and measures? How Is it that thepra carator is not aware of this sound moral pool pie? How come* it that the Emperor knows nothing of this? Is he unaware that numbers of persons belocglag to all slows of society are unpaid after having served him? ?nme in profession*? capacities, others with the sweat at their brow; some of them poor natives, venders of fowl, of butter, of fruits, Ac.

[From the Diarlo de la Marina, Feb. 13.] We have rsoelved letters from Mexico whioh atate that grant ooafbaloa and trouble reigned In that capital, owing to the approaching departure of the French gar rison. It waa generally feared that Um government ooeid not gather the means to defend the place from the attache of the dissidents, who are gradually ap proaching It and were already masters of nearly the whole valley. Hie number of persona who had already left Mexico for Vera Oram, to bow la foreign lands the security which tbsy lacked at home, ana considerable, and very many more were making their travel 11 eg pre parations to do Ukewise aa soon as they coald find the means of transport, which were becoming dally more soaroe, and were held at fhbulous prices. All the ateaxners that ply between Vera Cruz aad Havana bad their drat cabin plaoea engaged op to the end of Maroh, aad crowds of parties were seeking passage in vain. The neater part of those persons who signed the act establishing an empire are emigrating, not deeming it prudent to expose themselves to the vengeance of the republicans. The bishops also were resolved to go abroad, as'likewise some of the capitulars. Although hie Majesty the Emperor appeared deter mined to maintain his ground, and all his actions showed that he was trying to inspire confidence and to keep np the courage of the weak and timid, atill it was not generally believed that the result could answer the expectations or bis heart. On the contrary, the convic tion gained ground that sooner or later he Would he com pelled to abandon the cause. The relations between the Mexican government and Mursbal Bazalne were extremely unpleasant, and there was much gossip in the capital about a correspondence between the Marshal and various dissident chiefs which bad been Intercepted by the government. It is sold that In this correspondence there are abundant proofs as to the obstacle*; which the intervention (alio* the French) had put in the way of the consolidation of the empire. The chief object of this correspondence, It is asserted, was to secure from the government of Juarez a recogni tion of the debts claimed by France and French subjects. The Marsbal had complained bitterly of the violation of his correspondence, and demanded its immediate resti tution. The Emperor had oomplied with the demand, but not till he had taken copies of all the documents aad had them certified before witnesses. For this pur pose bo had called in all the foreign Ministers. There was much talk in Mexico on this aa well aa other occur rences. and every one commented on them, as la natural under such circumstances, according to the amount of irritation which he felt at the withdrawal of the French forces which now leave in a tottering and almost falling condition the edifice which they had come to erect. We should not forget that this irritation and indignation naturally leads to excess, and may give an appearance of reality to things that are unlikely and even absurd, it was reported, however, that the Mexican government intended to publish the whole correspondence.

Kvery effort to move the ship waa for aoae time un availing, and the Secretary and Admiral, together with several heavy boxao ef specie, were trans ferred to the United Statee steamer Don, which succeeded in reaching Portreee Monroe about New Year's day In a badly damaged condition. There the Gettysburg also arrived n few boats after the Don, and the two gentlemen end the specie were again put aboard the Gettysburg. In the midst of a henrr storm ahe put eut to sea. and want off no one know whom The knowing ones looked wise and hinted at Mexico; others boldly asserted that the little Island of 81 Thomas was to bo purchased with those thousands of bright, shining, golden eagles, car ried away on the Gettysburg. All were wrong. The steamer first touched at Fort Royal, Jamaica, and there the had luck which had attended the expedition from its outset culminated in a robbery. It aeems that the spe-1 cte boxes had been planed in the after hold of the ward room, and no guard placed over them. Some of the men found out the hiding place of the treasure, end when the steamer anchored iu Fort Royal harbor thoy broke one of the boxes open and abstracted three baga, contalaibg between five and six thousand dol lars. That was not to bo borne quietly, so the Assistant Secretary of State offered the very liberal reward af one hundred dollars for the recovery of the money. A few hundred dollars were found secreted In the hammocks of the crew, but the three bold robbers bad got ashore with the bulk of their booty. One of them was subsequently recaptured, with a small fortune of gold coin In his pocket; and here cornea In the same mystery which had characterized the expedition from the time it was first batched in the evor busy brain of the father of the Assistant Secretary of State. The culprit waa taken aboard the Gettysburg and banded over bis plunder to the first lieutenant, who, it in said, in n few hours afterward restored the money to bim and let him go ashore again. With that, the ciloris of the officers to recapture the deserters and recover the stolon money came to an end. After coaling, the Gettysburg proceeded to tbe island of St. Domingo, and cast anchor In the bay of that name. A messenger was sent ashore to Inform tne President,' Gen Jose Marin Cabral, of the arrival of the Assistant Secretary of State and Admiral Porter. He was not then at home, and a messenger was sent off up the country to convey the tidings to him. The next day he came down with an escort of upwards of one thousand cavalry. Guns ware fired, flags run up and cheers given by both sides. Amid the general rejoicing and hurrahing the two distinguished representatives of the American government went ashore to confer with President Ca bral. They remained aahore five days, during which Urns it in said they offered in the name of the United States to asanme the liabilities of the repub lic due to France and Spain, in return for which tbe mM republic should become a colony of the United Statee, and thai such an arrangement waa vary desirable, on tbe ground that the island would prove an sxoellent coaling station. The had luck of the expedition still prevailed. The President would not listen to any ar rangement unless be had caah down, with which bo him self could settle -all debts dae to the above named Powers. Horn was n dilemma, for tbe sum asked ejr the President ainesdsd the amount In tbe specie boxes, which, it will be remembered had already been depleted at Pott Royal.

Anchor was again weighed, and the Gettysburg steamed off for tbe pleasant little island of Nassau, where the disappointed diplomats went ashore to recuperate ! themselves after the arduous conversational exercise they had token at St Domingo. When their systems were thoroughly recuperated they again ordered the anchor to be weighed, and after on uneventful voysgn arrived safely at Annapolis en tbe dth last Kvery eflkrt ban been made to keep tbe object of the expedition and Its result a secret Sentries are placed around the Gettysbarg to prevent tbe saltan com municating with any person ashore, but l? apite of all precautions the above correct version of the mystery is laid before our readers, who must accopt It as another proof of tbe "mysterious influence of the Hkiuld. " THE STEAMSHIP ?? I. CUYLE1 BONDED. The public will remember that a few weeks since the steamship R R Cuyler was seised by order of the govern ment, on the ground that ahe had been 9tied out In this port for the purpose of making war on a state with which the United Slates ore at peace. Pull particulars of this transaction have already appeared in the Hnutn. Yesterday the owners of the steamer, Messrs. Russell Stuntis, Robert 8. Taylor, Henry W. Hubbell and Samuel H. Dollard, together with George Howes, of Brooklyn, and Francis Sklddy, of New York, as sureties, appeared before Mr. Samuel Q. Courtney, United States District Attorney, and entered Into bonds to tho amount of 9300,000?double the value of the ateamer and her armament?the condition being that she shall not en gage In any warlike operation against any country with which the United States have friendly relations. If this bond shall be violated the sum In question becomes for feited to the government. Mr. Courtney has approved of the bond, which has been forwarded to the proper department at Washington. If the government accept the bond tlie&R Cuyler wtU be at once restored to the owners; but pending this step we presume the steamer most remain In the hands of the Marshal's officers.

Alderman Hath*way, of the Ninth, and Alderman O'Keefe, of the Twelfth wards, had a Utile controversy over the adoption of the alnnteo of the preview meeting. The meeting, as will be remembered, wee called to order precisely at three o'clock, and for want of a quorum a recess of five mi nutes wae taken. At the expiration of the time a motion to adjourn by Al derman Hathaway waa carried. Mr. O'Keefe voted against the adoption of the m Inn tea because, as he ?aid. It wae rather sharp practice on the part of the Alderman of the Ninth. The minutes were finally adopted. Patrick Hughes wae awarded the contract for keeping the fire apparatus in repair in the city for the sum of $10,760. A report wae submitted by the special committee ap pointed to investigate the $4,000 eorraplion case. The report showed that the committee bad made a careful investigation, bat, strange as it might appear, they could find no one who had given any Alderman money. It was, therefore, resolved that in the opinion or the committee no attompt had been made to bribe any Alderman. The report and resolution waa adopted. The Auditor sent in a communication to the effect that he had no authority to pay the bills of the gas com panies, no contract having been entered into between the city and thorn; and also that the joint Board had failed to make a proviaion for lighting aU the public buildings. A motion wae made to refer the matter to the Mayor and a special committee. Alderman O'Ku.vs hoped it would be referred to some committee who would see that tho work was doue. The matter was referred to the Committee on Lamps and Gas. On motion of Alderman CasHow It was resolvtd that one hundred guns be hred from Fort Greene, and the national flags be hoisted on the public buildings, and the public offices be closed on Friday next, being the anni versary of Washington's birth day. Adopted. Alderman Bbbokk Wbred the following preamble and resolutions:? Whereas II la currently reported that there is reason to apprehend that a project is on foot to establish a quarantine station on Coney Island in this t-ountv, not only without the consent of ourcltUrns. but against the wlsliea and interest, and in violation of their deareal right* and privllegaa; and whereas we believe this me.-taure will be highly prejudicial not only to the preaent welfare and bapplneaa but to the ru tare growth ana prosperity of the city and county; therefore Resolved, Tl at this Hoard do respectfully hut most earn, eatly remonstrate against the passage of any aot by the Leg. Islature of the State, having for its object the removal of tho quarantine establishment, or of any ipurt thereof from the couuty of Richmond to the county of Kings, or for the making of any hoarding station in Kim:* county. . Resolved. Th.it the representatives of this county in the State Senate and Assembly be especially requested to gtva this subject their immediate attention, and that they en deavor to prevent the consummation of the project by all honorable means within their power. Alderman Bkrues said that a bill to this effect was about to be passed by the Legislature, and ho thought it would ho an imposition on tbc citizens of Brooklyn to establish a quarantine on this island. After a short dis enssion the preamble and resolutions wore adopted. No further business of importance was transacted.

The suit was on three promUaorj notes for <1,000 each, an# the defence was tbu they were given for a gamins consideration. Unable to establish this defence by direct evidence the conn below (the Supreme Court of the District of Colum bia) permitted proof to show that the payee of the notes was uno Steer, a notorious fambler, who, on the date lu question (January 1, 1857), kept a gaming house In Washington, and that tho defendant was always inclined to gambio when under tho influence of liquor, and was grossly intoxicated on the night of tho last day of the old year aud the morning of Hew Year's day, 1857. The vordict was for ibe deleodant, and the case was brought bare on appeal Mr. Justice PhvIh now read the opinion of tbe Court reversing the judgment below, holding tbat to allow such a defence to be proven by showing tbat the defendaut wad inclined to gumblo when Intoxicated, and tbat be was drunk on the date when tbe notes were given, would overturn all the established rules o! evidence. Supposing, say the Court, it lie claimed thai a party is addicted to lioise stealing, and particularly an when drunk, and It is proven thai he was drunk on a certain dale, will it therefore tie thought established that be then stole ahorse! Oil this point alone, wiihool proceeding to consider tbo various other qL cat tons rai-od, the judgment was reversed. Mr. Justice Oder read a dissenting opinion. In which be took the view thai the defence was substantially that tbo notes were obtaiued from tbe defendant by fraud, while he was intoxicated; and the defenco being fraud, and not speciUeallv that of niero gaining consideration, circumstantial evidence was admissible to prove the al legation.

G. Brown, a boat under the direction ot I he Quarter master's Department, is the vicinity of New Orleans, where the trade was conducted, and which was hired or that department for tho purposo of such transportation. It wis objected in tbe case that it should have beuo on the instance side of tbe Court, and thai if there was any liability at all to forfeiture it was for violation of au thority under Treasury regulations, and not in prise. The cause was appealed by the government, and the Court now hold, Mr. Justice Miller delivering the opinion, tirst, tbat where u ease has been prosecuted as prize, while tbu facts show tbat it is not prize, but a case of forfeiture under statute, this Court will remand it for further proceeding In the court below, secondly, tbat where a case ban been in like manner prosecuted in the Instunce court, which, on tho facts presented, this Court takes to he a rase for a prize court, it will be remanded for proceedings in prize. Thin is not a case for prise, but of forteiturc under statute for viola ton of their permits by the claimants, but there is no reason to believe that a case of forfeiture would bo made out on the testimony on auolber trial, as most or tiie ct parte testimony taken by tho captors would probably be modified favorably to tho clalmnnis on croes-exuminauon.
