Jan. 10, 1M7. ) At the hour of my leavtn* Puraogo I wrote to yon of Vi9 .irroi* of Jc >iii Guuulc 0fU'j4? whose cl&inui w the JMexic ui Presidency have atlractod no much attention, li appears that he reached Zacatecu on the Tlh of Janu ary ?)tb the determination to make a bold effort to rouite the oountry to arm* in his favor, and, if possible, enwte a revolution which might overthrow the power of lYei-ideut Juarez. He had with him a number of procla mations, printed in Hrownsvllle, Texas, or gorge part of the I'nited Males. These he in part distributed; but be fore tho movement wan fully on foot be attempted to oulist Governor Auza, of Zacatecas, in his tavor. The Governor was his warm personal friend and compadre and also related to bim by marriage. Ortega'* efforts to seduce Auza into bit plans were useless. Auza bad an interview witb Ortega previous to his arrest, and told km that bis plans were wild and impracticable; that 1li >ico was entirely devoted to tbo constitutional gov ernment, as represented by President Juarez, and tbat be (Orteg&> would And not the slightest support even tn the State upon which be placed the most reliance. He told him tbat it was his duty to arrest him, aud accord ingly did so. The arrest was performed very qniotly and without any commotion, there being not a single effort made in behalf of tno prisoner, in fact it is my observation that it is hard to discover a man in Mexico who tupi'orui Ortega's claims to the l'residoticy, or who speaks well of his official career. I have couvurse<l with many of his personal friends who, however much friend ship they entertaiu for him, pronounce him entirely unfit for any rospons.ble position either in civil or military life. Even two days muco 1 was told by one of his waim friends Unit Ortega's course when the French invaded /,??iitcas whs perfectly ruinous to the .- tate, and that hi* management prevented any united action against the enemy. He at that time gave guerilla commissions which used up every element of warfare that the .State contained, without damaging the enemy a particle. ATer the arrest he, with ex-Governor Patonl, of Do rango? h.s only adherent of note?was started on the road to Durango, to be delivered up to the general gov eminent. Kews of the arroft, however, boln,' received toy the President, he ordered General Ar<tf, witb a caval ry force of three hundred men. to lutoroept tho guard of the prisoner and convey Ortega to Sau Luis l'olosl, which city the government will soon reach. General ?Arce intercepted the guard at a distance ol about twen ty-live leagues south of Duraugo, on the ZacaUcas road, near El Mortero, a hacienda of som1 note. There he took charge of the prisoner and rencbed Sent, a village within eighteen leagues of Zacatecas. on tlie 16th Janu ary, ami on the 17th Instant proceeded on his route to Han J.uis Potosi. advising the Minister of W ar that be should avoid all the large towns and cities, taking a road wli'ch will leave Zacatecas to the southward. He will probably reach the destined point about the 'J3d or 34th of the present month.

OUR HAVANAJjOMESPONDENCE. Th? lulled Slut en Nteaiaer Laacaator-Frenrh Transports en Koute? Miscellaneous IntdlU a<'ut-e?Commercial Newt, Sie. Havana, Feb. 27, 1*6T. The American schooner James Wyman, Captain Nel son, from Nassau, N. P., on the 13th, arrived h?ro on the 16th, and sailed on tho 21st instant with a supply of naval stores, kc., for the Lancaster. In consideration of the exceptionality of the ease, the achoon?r wag con sidered as a man-of-war's tender. She was allowed to come and go without entry or clearance, and free of all charges. On Sunday, the 24th, we had the arrival of two large French vessela-of-war. One was the Bayard (a big four decker of the olden time*), commanded by M. Lafcm, thirty-four days out from Cherbourg, and bonnd to Vera Orus to carry bark as many of the French troop.* to thetr homes as she oan, having room enough, It is said, for three thousand men. The other was the Lyon, transport, commandant Bullett, with six hundred and titty troops on board and seven days out from Vera Crux, bound to France vis Martinique. There appears to be a great deal of sickness en board. One or more transports are hourly expected from Vera Crux. Ab tho troops are not allowed to leave the vessels their arrival is not o( the slightest benefit to this town. One Yankee gunboat spends more for cigars and other creature com fort* than one-half of all the French transports to gether. There are of these about twenty-flve to arrive still. On Friday last, the 22d Inst., the United States Rtearner Corwin, Commander Piatt, steamed out of the harbor at seven 4. M., to make the neccsary soundings near the beach and a practical survey of the coast between the Morro Castle and the creek or cove of Marianao, in order to select the most convenient point to fix the cablo's end. The weather being good it was a pleasant trip to the land party Invited. Soundings were accordingly made in the winding of San l.azaro, in front of C'armelo, and at the Inlet of Martanuo. To any novice Carmelo seemed to be the best spot, owing to its easy slope of coral sand: but the moro sclentfftc and practical of the party will be tho best judges of that. The whole party partook of an excellent breakfast on hoard, a la four chrtt. and when the Corwin anchored at Mariaoao a ven erable old fisherman boarded her and Inform"*! Com mander Piatt (whose gallantry on the occasion has not been exaggerated by the party on board) that be (the fish erman I was the "So?undo Alcalde de mar." and wlshod to know "what all that meant" Ho was duly informed that thev were all busy in the establishment of a sub marine telegraphic cable, and although he could not exactly comprehend the moaning he Immediately re turned to the shore to apprizo the people of the small hamlet near la sort of water-balllfT). When tho Corwin returned to the harbor the band on board the Spanish frigate Gerona, as we passed, struck up Yankee Doodle and hoisted the starry flag at the top, in honor of Wash ington's birthday. Herewith you have the result of the scientific part of the survey. Mr. John Neninger, rep resentative of the Companr, gave a diunor party in the evening, in celebration of the day. Among the present sojourners Here are two very wealthy Italian noblemen, Prince Doria and Duke Grail oit, of Rome, who are travelling for pleasure and amuse ment. They belong to a good slock and the former your readers will know belter than wo do. In fact, General Toin Thumb would attract more notice here than would them noblemen. The estimates of expenditures In this Island, for the month of March next, amount to $4,573,740. A general inspection of all the forts aud military odl flcos is being practiced by the Engineer Department. They have commenced with the Morro Castle, and, whon all the fortifications havobeen thoroughly '-looked into," all the military establishment-- In (Vuinss, Guan^Jay and other dependencies will follow; and later on all the remaining strongholds of the island. Including the Isle of Pini?. Some Important works a re to be erected In the Morro Castle, especially the parapets corresponding to the batteries of the Parrott guns, which are to be made stronger. A fire broke out the other day at a wine and spirits ?tor? in Havana street, near the Hotel de Santa Isabel, but fortunately it was soon extinguished by the Chinese of the Honradez cigarette manufactory, without the interference of the city brigade, who seldom do any good, and frequently destroy property unnecessarily by reckiossnoss. The golden cup used in the cathedral at the dispensa tion or the holy sacrament dinappcared the other night from the clhary. But, either the cup was silver gilt, and not worth stealing, or ulse mo pilferer repented of the act, as the cup was next day found at the Craullnas church, with a paper attached, requesting that It might be immediately restored to the cathedral. Oonzalez, tbo condemned corporal of the Rspafla regi ment, whoso capital punlshmont was commuted through tbe intercession of the Archduchess Carlotta, when here m route, having again been condemned for aiding aud abetting In a murder lately committed, was shot yester day morning at an early hour bofore a largo concourse of people, Ik front of the public prison. Penor Zarragoitia, of Matanzaa, baa purchased some lands near a place called Reloj, cloao to the railway, for the purpoxo of forming a "central" sugar plantation with free laborers. He has distributed part or the land to whites, and tbe 'est lie bus rented out with the view to form a community near the estate. On the mgbt of the 23d Inst the splendid stores of AvMee and the theatre at Caibarien were totally destroyed by Ore, supposed to be an act of incendiarism. Being for sale tbere wero no Inmat ? In tbe edifice. Tho English West India mail steamer Mersey, from at. Thomas, arrived oa tbe 24tb Inst., and, after having Men subjected to a short quarantine, sailed for Vera Cruz tbe following day. The Board of Health has Issued an order, dated the 26th Inst., exempting all vessel* from St. Thomas from quarantine. On Sunday last tbe false alarm was given that a revolt among the negroes had broken out In the parish of Jeaiis Maria, a low neighborhood outside the walla, com posed of the poorer classes, of whites, but of a larger noirber of free oolored people, particularly blacks. Among the latter there are section* or parishes which have been in tbe habit of pitting their strength against ons another on the Sabbath instead ef resting from their weekly labors, and last San day they w><nt a little too far, or were rather more flushed than usual, having at tacked and wounded tbe sergeant of polioe; In conse quence thereof assistance was Immediately called for. In tbe alTray Ave negroes were killed snd thus ended tbe sflair; but tbe Capiat a General, In order to prevent a recurrence, has adopted coercive measures and aug mented the police force In that neighborhood. The Banco Eepanoi has aow $6,786,160 In hank notes In circulation, (2.113,642 cash in hand, (1,221,300 in bank notes, and $1,266,*14 in treasury bonds. The gov ernment stands debt* to the bank lor f 1.81>T,687. Ca ni ps ri as the last statement with that or tbe previous week I notice s deorease of $202,260. The profit snd loss account gives (64,137 since the 1st of January last. The sugar market continues to bear a languid aspect The offers now range m proportion to 7){ reals for No. 12, though 1 do not notice any sales made on that basis. The actual inquiry is principally for special classes, from Ne. 16 to No. 20, and for molasses sugar of yellow grade from No. 10 to No. 12. Tonnage is exceedingly scarce, and shipmasters con tinue to demand enhancing rates. Coastwise freights for Great Britain are up to ?3 and 6 primage.

By the English steamer Mersey, from St Thomas snd Porto Biro on Die 10th Inst, we have race It sd news from Logaayra to tbe 6th IssL M antral ho has been the scene of another revolutionary movement General Capo, with some four hundred men. attempted to sarprtss tha place, and a determined flsht took place ta the streets with (he forcea of tbs State of fcnite. Tha result was averas to him, for ho was killed and his men dispersed. It appear* that the expedition of General Capo against Maracaibo was orgaait*] la Oolomblan territory. Tho came of tbs revolt was attributed to tbe form of govern ment of ZnlUt Tho difficulties which existed In Caimbobo were about beiag terminated. A provisional government was formed, composed of General* H. Lopez, F. Montague aad I. Rives. The merchants of lagueyra bad facilitated to tbe general government sufficient resources, under easy terms, to meet the current expenses and remunerations duo t? the widows and orphans. Invalids and retired oracers of tbe army. The opinion was that the govern n.ent, by following IU present policy, was not llkoly to be again plunged into financial diffli 'ilties. It was feared when tbs French ship .rf-war ITEstaing appeared o(T tl?e port of laguayra that the loan instal ment duo io February would be enforced.

An Indinn Challenge to tlie Redruatt-Orlcia of the Trouble?The Mexican Boundary Question* Jkc. Hataka, Feb. 24, 1867. The English schooner Venice, Captain P<ters, from Belize, Honduras, on the 12th instant, arrivel here late on tho evening of the 22d instant with the mails from Honduras for the West Indies and Europe. According to reliable information the ostensible object of the Venice coming to this port was to communicate with the English Consul General for the urgent necessity of his immediately sending an English man-of-war to Belize, to prevent the disasters which It was feared would occur within a very few days after the sailing of the Venice. The Consul not having any British war shipB within communication, applied to the American Consul for one of our gunboats now In harber. This, I understand, will be cheerfully and promptly complied with. It is regarded as very gratifying to obeorve the prevalenco of this truly cordial feeling betweon the two principal functionaries representing tho two great marl time nations in this island. The Spanish admiral, I am also informed, has offered to send down one of hU shipe to Belize. The schooner Venice will return to Belize the moment the English maii steamer arrives; she is now due. When the Vonico left Belize there wero no vessels bound for toe United States. From the information which I have obtained it ap pears that instead of four hundred troops, reported by the last Jamaica papers to have been sent down with Colonel Harley, ouly one hundred and nfty men arrived. At the hour of the Bailing of the Venice no demonstra tions of any borious character hod been made by the In dians, but it was supposed that they were only six days Journoy from Belize. The Governor detainod the Venice as long as be could, with the intention of leaving in her himself, but that alter duo consultation he decided to remain and send to Havana for immediate assistance. After the troops retreated f'om San Pedro, the par ticulars of which are already before your readers, a stronger force was despatched from Belize. Three hun dred men went up the fiboa river to march by land to Sao Podro, and ono hundred mora, under Captain Dela mares, were sent up to Rio Hondo. When they arrived at San Pedro not a single Indian was mot with?they wero ail scattered about in tho various timber ?? walks," burning down the mahogany " banlcs."

The Governor being already ereativ alarmod was weak enough to comply with tho proposi tlon, and immediately despatched a "btingy" load itirt v or sixty kegt) of powder, of coursu the success which the Indian chief obtained by this ruso made the abor leines very - saucy" ever sinoo, and encouraged them to "measure" themselves with tho English. . uf t!l,? col"red natives, named Frederick Reynolds ^ ' trade, Instigated by many of tho upper classes, engaged a bellman to go round and givonotice that ho intendod to edify tho i>oople with a becoming speech on tho occasion of the Gov ernor's aclS> Tho Attorney General endeavored to prevent this but failed, and th? sable weakne? ofoblai?ed.a P>*tform, ridiculed the weakness of tho Governor for having been ou-generalled m^8 Ln 8uPP'.v'ng ">eo with the very mean-.

There has been considsniWe of a trembling in financial and business circles hero during tho past day or two, and even aow thero is a general feeling of dlstrast towards some of the oldest and probably staunchost houses in tho country. All through tho wook until Fri day afternoon the brokers dad manifested much Joy at the success of their operations; hut when Saturday morning came tho news was whispered about that Mol lcn, Ward A Co., bankers, had gone under, and that their downfall would oarry many to ruin with thorn. It appears now, but w as not known before, that this Arm directed tho management of tho Copper Falla, Huron a?d several other fancy stocks, which have of late eom^ mandnd high prices but which are now away down.

It certainly will not be paid until the end of considerable litigation. C H. Snuth is the name of the unwise cashier of the State Hank. He had been in tbe buuk several yearn, and had been cashier about a year, and his reputation had always been good. Julius F. Hart wi ll Is tbe discharged official from the Custom tlouso alluded to. The urm of Mellen, Ward k Co. waa a comparatively now one, and the member* are young men. X'hey hare operate 1 l.ir.ely in j:old and copper stocks, and for some time have been hard up for money. The seuior of the tlrm was in New Tork on Friday. The Newton Bank was organized in 1&04, and its capital stock wa< $160,000. The question of tbe hours of labor Is one which is still uppermost la the minds of tbe middling classes of Mas gacuusetts. It Is not confined to ihe men alone, but the pretty factory operatives of Lowell sud Lawrence have taken the matter into their delicate bands, and are de termined to make the Legislature accede to their de mands and enact juat such a law as will protect them. The corporations by which these women are employed are unquestionably anything but huinaue towards them if their statements before the legislative committee are correct. One of thorn. a Miss Kenohan, who has pre sided at some of tne operatives' mass meetings in Lowell, has said, tn giving an account of tbe condition of the operatives, that she knew of sixty and In some cases of seventy five persons boarding In one small house. There were also instances where operatives had been discharged for acting in favor of a ten hour law, and many are thns prevented from taking an active part In the movement through fear of losing their places. Out of two hundred and lilty in the room where she worked she had obtained the names ol two hundred and twenty-four to a petition for a ten hour law, and they were sustained in tlioir course by the people of Lowell generally. One'of the Lauren e operatives told the commltteo that the girls were con fined in the mills so many houra that they lost much tune in consequence of sickness. When Uiey cot. through work at night it Is so late aud they are so tired that they don't rare to go out to take the (rush air. Such statements as these, and others of a kltidrod nature, have had the effect to create considera ble of a sympathetic feeling amoug the mem bers of the Legislature, and It Is understood that their investigations hereafter will Include a per sonal visit to the mills In Lowoll and tawrence, and if the charges made against ih ? corporations are well founded a bill will ba reported guaranteeing protec tion against abuse, and probably providing lor only ten hours' labor, iustcad of eleven and twoive us now. The agitators for an eight hour law have generally with drawn Irom active efforts or gone over w in the ten hour petitioners. The repoit of tho Labor Commission against an eivbt hour law some months since has had the effect to discourage, or at least postpone for a while, further elforts in that direction. The liquor and anti-Iiqaor excitement continues to ran high, aud me rants of those seeking a ucen.-e Law is daily Increasing, aud mere is a corresponding decrease in ilie friends of a prohibitory law. The hearings before the legislative committee continue, and are atiendod by thousands interested tn the question. There is, how ever, not much probability thai a license lair will be passed, although a mil will bo reported by the legis lature. The stir was not uiado by the friends of the law in time to secure a uiHjor.ty iu the Let-'ulaiure; but ltublic oninion is now bcimr rnoullv formed. ofrnm !'kcly lhal11,n another yeur the question "r "o rum will bo cameo into politics.

A New Color nn<l New Ilat. 4c. Paris, Feb. 15, 1867. The opening of the Legislative Assembly is the most rocent event of this week, the ceremony having taken place yesterday with unusual splendor, enhanced by the I rays of a bright summer son under a pore blue sky. Tho Parisians wore all on foot, and thick crowds saluted the louf? procession of court carriages with respectful enthusiasm. The gala uniforms were very brilliant, the ambas sadresses and ladies of the diplomatic corps most splendidly attired in a great deal of silver and gilt em broidery on velvet. Kme. de Metternich wore quite a novel?casaque, for want of a better denomination, though Ibo body of it was a Spanl.-h bolero, made of sliver anil gold cloth. Tho wide, open sleeves, made of black velvet, were so long that they touched the ground, ending in points, and from tho waist behind hung black velvet lappets, like a sa'h. This, readers, Is the exact description of the first of a new serios of matinee mantles. The new born wonder is not yet christened. Therefore we will call it heathenish, and charitably entertain a hope of Its conversion Into less expensive material. It certainly ia a most mediaeval idea for the nineteenth century. The next novelty has been chrUtouuiL Alas! I spoke of It* adoption in my lormer letters, and said that though it was a narrow barque worn on front widths it deserved to t>e culled a utomarhor. Competent authorities have named It an "agrippa." "Here would I fa n panse," as once said a poet In greai bewlMernvnt, but If I did so the fashions would get ahead of mo, and not ereti the mother of Nero may startle tue out of the main r?ad. The "airrippaa" llgured ou every robo at the last ball at the Tulleries. They are made or the same shade and material as that employed in underskirts are trimmed with llowura, crouts luids, fnnm or ruche, and s.mie appeared rather heavy, being lailmi with I -ovrn and IKiwrrs. L ine tana and salui >n color were tho predominant shades, a deep apricot foult de sole worked with green chenillo aud r d berries was much admired. 1 should have preferred its rival, a white satin, marked with a rich coral pattern, if tho wearer had been dark and Ull en"ii?h. Preparations arc being made for private bals masqnto. The public balls of this description given at tho theatres never can rive an idea of tho churacter to be given lo fancy costumes in tho holier circles. Orea'. mystery ever preva ls on the matter among those who make dress the sole object of their ex stence, notarithsianding which It Is evidont that Aspaslas, ( leopairaa, Clytem nnstraa and all tho antiqu-* coiehritlos are to take the Uad. Indies who do not boast of the rounded propor tions so lamed at Athens mean to try Hebe, Diana and other characters romarkabie for legs If not for sboul dog.
