Th? schooner Mitia, Captain Thompaon, arrived a few hour* since from our squadron ofl' Anton Li. zardo, and brings soma item* of Intelligence. She bringa news down to the 13th inst. The expedition against Tampico haa started, under command of Com Conner, end consisted of the Princeton, OepL Engle, bearing the broad pennant of Oom. Connor ; tho Mississippi, Com Perry ; the Raritan, the Potomac, the St. Mary's, the Spitfire, Petrel, Vixen, Bonita, Reefer and Nonata. A portion of the expedition started on the 11th, and the residue on the 13th inst There is not much danger of any fighting, as the steamer Spitfire, which arrived at Anton Lizardo on the 11th inst, from Brazos Santiago ria Tampico, had learned from the Porpoise, blockading that port, that the garrison had all left the ^Tbe Semers is left to maintain the blockade of the harbor of Vera Cruz, and the frigate Cumberland, Capt. Forrest, the prize steamer Tabasquena, and prize schooner Alvarado, are all lying at Anton Lizardo. Nothing had been heard from the Forward and MeLane since the return of the Tobasco expedition, and the prize schooner Laura Virginia had left to communicate with them. The Vera Cruz papers publish a report of the Tobasco expedition, and abuse the Americans in the most un- | measured terms for bombarding a defenceless town, j They give the number of killed on their side as 81, and correctly estimate our loss. They say the shot from our guns did extensive damage They still harp upon the Alvarado affair, and dare the squadron to make another attempt upon it. The Raritaa has the remains of Lieut. Morris on board, and will return to Pensaeoia as soon as the Tampico expedition has been concluded NAVAL INTKLI.IOXNCE.

As has been already stated, she was taken on the coast of Mexico en the 3d inst., and when hailed was under English colors, and said her name was Cobden, of Plymouth. She had landed 437 bales cotton. The remaining part of her cargo is still on board, with 700 hides and 3d tons of logwood, which was taken from other prise vessels and put on board the Plymouth. MKXICAN LETTSBS OP MABQUK. The following appears in the Poit : - We learn from Washington, on the very heat authority, that a correa- I pondence has taken place between the Secretary of Stato for the United States and the authorities of Cuba, touching the fitting out of Mexican Letters of Marque, in the ports of that Island It is known that thera is an express stipulation in our treaty of 1799, with old Spain, against the fitting out of privateers from any Spanish port, which stipulation has been pressed upon the attention of Spaiu. In reply to Mr. Buchanan's letter, we are told that the I iiivw pvnitiTu wi?ui?jivv? u??o Moeu returned wuiu uy ! the government of Cuba and that oftba mother country, to the effect that the term* of the treaty will be molt religiously adhered to. No privateers of any description will be suffered to depart from any Spanish posse tsioaMr Buchanan maintains distinctly that any violation of the treaty should be a just cause or war. Much has been said by writers for the press as to certain negotiations said to have been entered into between our government and Santa Anna, in regard to the termination of the Mexican war. But we have authority for stating that no such negotiations hare ever taken place, and that our goveromant has had no connection whatevever with the Mexican leader. Mr. Mackenzie's mission to the Havana has been spoken of in connexion with these reports, but that mission has had exclvsive reference to this subject of protecting our commercial in- j to rests. As to the naturalisation of foreigners by the Mexicans, of whioh something is said in our recent news frem Havana, we know that our government will regard the transaction as a fraud, and will treat all persons pretending to set in such a character as pirates.

The counMl for the I plaintiff (Mrs. Conner) on Wednesday laat, called on the I Rot. Mr. Sprole, Presbyterian minuter, to testily as to | the practice of marriage in Pennay Ivinia. with a view to ihow or strengthen the main iaaua that th law ef that State requiring the presence of twelve witnesses, ho has i gone into disuse, and that notwithstanding the lew so [ requirihg the presence of twelve witnesses, the superior I courts of Pennsylvania have decided that marriages performed with less than twelve, or even without a single ; witness, are'legal, valid, and binding upon the peraee. j Mr. Bradley objected to the witness, because heHicing : a clergyman, and all marriages celebrated before him, ' having been according to the forma of the Presbyterian { church, and not according to the forms in practice sad : recognized by aldermen, ne was incompetent to testify in any wsy tending to support the validity of this al- ' leged marriage of the plaintiff, which, if performed at | ell, v> at before an alderman and not a clergyman.] I The question at issue being defined, ' The court decided against the testimony of Mr. Sprole, as having no direct application to sustain the legality of a marriage which may have been held according to the practice in Pennsylvania as a mere civil contract, in contradistinction to msrriages as a religious ordinance. After some conversation between the counsel and the court, Mr. Bbkist asked the construction of the law and the practice, ami the decisions thereon; which being explained by the Court, the learned counsellor expressed himself satisfied. This was sufficient, without the parole evidence. Mr. and Mr*. Js?epk Hovxa, of Philadelphia, (worn.

The lady came into my store to aak for a bottle of ink, or the price of it, and she began to enquire about the form of the buildings there; (he also began to apeak about Alderman Chriatian; thia struck me as rather strange; discovered her object was about a marriage; I think! spoke to her of the papers of Alderman Christian, which might bo found at bis houae; she turned it off, and asked me about his personal appearance. Mr. Baairr?Let me understand that; dont go on so fast. Witness?Ah, yes, sir. The front room was occupied hv Alderman Christianas his office; it was in the same place; there is no other room in the front below; the tore room covers all the front except the entry, which leads to the rooms back; she then said she would like to see the back rooms; showed them to her? there. are three rooms back of the store; she looked at them and made some remark, and then came out; saw plaintiff again on the 1st day of September last, in the alternoon. 1 fix the date upon the circumstance that in the V- 8. Gazette of the 3d September, the next day, there was a letter published purporting to be a letter of Gen. Van Ness, and an advertisement in the Lrdger, offering a reward for a ceitificate of marriage; saw the lady pass into the back room; to satisfy myself of her identity 1 placed myself where 1 could see her as she passed nut; saw her pass out; heard nothing then. Next day, Sept. 3, saw her again; looking out ol my store. 1 saw the lady coming across the street: she went to the storo oerner of 3d end Cherry; she appeared to be reconnoitering, holding glasses up te her eyes, and looking over to my atere; she then came directly across, nd came in; I asked her te take a scat; she said she would like to see the reema; we went into the rooms back; in one of them she made some explanation that this was the plaoe; I asked her, Madam, what is the mat wri ids repuva uiai 1 i|ijmivu iw tcij conuiu, yoa: I 1 hive some reason to be curious; this is three times you have beon lit re without stating your business, and eitalnly I have some reason to be curious- she replied to the effect that 1 need not be curious, as I should not be a loser by it; 1 then told her about the late family; she said she did not oome about that; she then went away, and her last words were that this was to be confidential.
