On Sunday a conferenos was held in the palate among the tlvaacMTs and capitalists of Havana to consult upon the affairs of the proponed Spanish bank of die jo ant and deposit, authorized by charter of the government at Nhdrid, ef which a oopy has been famished yen.

I). ?Te The Failure of the Cuban Expedition. f float El C'.mets, (the erf a a of the Cabins of Ne?r Ycrk,l Jane 13.] TO-DAY 8 QUESTION. It ie generally talked of as a recent event which we all barieve to be true, and which has filled with borrow and anguish the hearts 01 the Cubans. The Main fact stand* uncontradicted, but such ia not the ease in regtri to the detail* and causes of It. It is natural for every Cuban acx'ouily to inquire about these details, and the Ires causes of such a griev eras catastrophe, what are the;f If we, on our own part, have h-ord some explanations, prudence and justice bid us to listen to the coua'erpirt, end we believe that all those placed in the same situa fc?n ought to suspend their verdict. Although the tndi ?vidua! wbo relates a fact be entitled to our first credit, he cannot righteously n quest it, il his manifestations bring forth charges against other persons, uuleia they be present and let the coarges stand uncontradicted. 1 et ua, then, suspend our judgment?but until whe_ There exists, indeed, a necessity, an imperious and ur gent necessity, of depurating the causes of the failure ?I so many hopes, the intliction or so uuny lanugos tie e&eitfi te ol so mi or victims. Nor it it a mere curiosity that Is to be *5'is tied, but the desire of drawing from the lessons of the TJST, useful warnings for t?e future. ? r^Stir, w? ought to wait a Mtsocable Mijth ot bn>#i hut that reasonable term, in the pr?-,*nt circum ?Ranees, sheu'il be the shortest, ns we must soon, very ?en know who are the guJPy ami who are the merlto x?ns. The rf3"oa for that ir. quit* plain? we see and ?Isolate tit fa'al consequence *h*t the least suspicion against eertain ?sc wou'.d produce in the people of Ca be. the people of Cuba trusted on those men and on tfcetar programme; they believed them to he honest; bat the Mo * hia betn a terrible one, and nothing but an Immediate vindication can lessen its bad ellerts. The least delay will give rise to suspicion; silence would oenfirm it The ship is lost?what do the pilots : ay? During these last tew aaya we have heard the clamors #f the impatient and the lamentrtiona of the moderate. The former say, "Neither unforeseen mishaps nor the interference of tins ilmlnintra'ion. nor any ether cir ?omoiatcee within the reach of wise ra<-n to prt ve t, have been the cause of the failure." What, then, hiT? ?bey betn? And dilemmas an set fcrth-awful di kNU, that must be resolved. In rtgard to the moderate, they wait patiently before they declare their opiuion The'r con-cionco would ? case them of advanclrga verdict not founded on fa ?; but yet tbey, as well as toe others, gueis with their o~n mend, and oof in a very favorable w?v indeed. The author of the present lines bas nsver been ac iaiuted with the doings of the Ouban Junta since Its augoration, except a very limited number of them; a?d If this veil ol mystery hex been thrown over the nflhirs before the eyes of all thus# interested in th m, ww cure say that It ha* proved fatal to the Junta; and ?e repeat It, although wo have ofttn said It (baeauM it -fe necessary to In'n'oata this idea), anl although our ?pinion it now almost unanimous among the Cabana. Th# reserve of the Junta expldDs?nay. it justifies? tf)? nnbeunied >r?ero-p with which every Cuban enters tte wide held of conj ecture. Some o. those eboaic in favor of such a mysterious system?and it is fair to say that we deem them b><rui fid* men?argue that it was not convenient to make toe whole tmth known. Those men?perhaps ancoo -lcnsly?profile the maxim tlint " it is lawful to cheat tbe people far its own sake,*' in the same way as we cheat a sick cb'ld by nwseV'nlng the ?dgeof the bitter glass of medicine. No In Vied ; false hood le never lawful In regard to a people: it might be ?, lor lack of otber means, apctnst its oppressors; but ?ever when employed against those who deserve ?it beet regards. Besides this, to comtitat* themselves an Judges of tbe interests of s million of poople, conceal ing from tbem the grounds of their Judgment, would ?bow a pretence to superiority ss false on foolish. Mors ?wer, a similar oondsct causes the one who follows It to be continually in deugt rof goL.g astray from the pith of duty, as tbe obi gut on ot telling 'hi truth Is a guar antee ef good behavior, wuiie the privilege of concealing or misrspri sent log one's doings is a hi pery ground for a wtrtuans man. Th-re is one thing that we ought to declare In earnest, 1. a. that silence has been kept too long. We believe that si ue* tbe failure took place there has he so tltns ?tiengb to write and fo publish ali about it. We have already been told?to onr great sorrow?of a motive for each a silence, which, indeed, appear* to ba nothing hut ? pretext. They eorne and ray over and over that "it is not convenient now." alluding to the pre/rotation of eertain account a. But what r*o we care for ih'?eeae eonnte, when the result of the who's wffalr is already known? And a wonder*nl result it Is, Indeed! let tbem give us the key of the e<- gma Lot th m "?t out with a fair dad?us. so that It may be i? by those wbo are tbe meet anxious to eontnte it?a defeoca ta wbleh we may rather berr the confession of sin o?

The Mississippi Democratic Convention met at Jackson on tbo 4th Inst Alt the preeent State oUlcers were re Dominated as follows:?Hon John McKae, for Governor A. B. Dilwortb. for Secretary of State; Madison Hc.tfW fcr Auditor of Fublie Acoount#; S. L. Hussy, for State Treasurer. Ibe Committee on Resolutions reported the following which wer? unanimously adopted:? 1. Resolved, That this cooventiou adopts and re affirm* theraicluboosof tho National Den ocratio CouvenMoo, held nt daltimoie in 184!f, and oeems it pvculiarlv ap propriate at this time to re-produ?u for puhlio consider atlob it e /uliow*Dg ot these resolutions, to trit 'Jhot the American osmosrsoj pUco their trurt in the Intelligenoe, tbe patrotiem, and the ills crlminniing justice of tbe Ameiicau people. Rtfolvd, Tbat we regard tols ss a distinctive fea?ure of our pobtical creed, which we are proud to nt ntam bvfoie the wcild as toe great moral element in the lorm of guytiument vpriuging from and upheld by the pjpu lar will; and we contrast it with the creed am prictlc# of lederalism, unctr whatever nsmo or form, wh cb seeks (o paJpy the will of the constituent, and which conceives no imposture too monstrous lor the populer crednhfy/ ? * e llmt tbo liberal principles embodied by \Jeflomou in tbe Declarat'ov of Iodrpvndecce, and ssnstioned in the eoncWtutioo which ma:.cs ours .be land of liberty and the asylum of tie oppressed of ?y?iy nation, have over been cardinal principles in the democratic fsitn ? end every attempt to abridge the privilege of becoming citi sons and the owners of soil among us ought to lie rvrtet ed with the same sp'rtwhleh swept the al.en and sedi tion laws from our statute books. lhat Congress hen no power under the constitution to interfere with or control the domestic institutions of tha teveral ttafes, sna that saah fitotes are ths sole and ?PJ*'t*l??'ng to their own affairs not prohititea by tho eon titutloo; thst all ef icrts of the abohtioristH or o.hers made to induce Cor, jiess to Interfere with questions of slavery, or to fake incipient steps In relation thereto, are calculated to loid o the most alarming and dangerous oonsequencss, and that a l such efforts rave an lneviUb'e* tendency to dl DBinish the hspp nsas of the people and endamrer the itabii.t. and pennsnsncy of the Un.on, and ought nat to t>e Coun-enanoFd by any/riend oi our poliUcal rnstitu ;ions. Resolved, Tliat tho for?golng proposition covers, and was intended to emt-race, the whole subject of slavery rgitation in Congr-fs. and therefore the democratic party of tlio Unicn, standing en this national plat'om, will abide by ano act ere to a faithful exccutKin of the acts krown us the compromise measures settled by the last t'ongrets, the ' aot ior wcla mlng tugitlv?s from ser vice or labor ' included, which act being designed to carry cut an expresa provision of tbe constitution, can not with fidelity thereto bo repealed, or so changed as to destroy or Impair Its efficiency. Resolved, lhat the democratic party will resist all at tempts at renewing, in Congress or out of it, the sgita tien or the sDvtiy question, under whatever shape, or color tbe attempt may be made. ?. Resolved, Tbat we are opposed to tbo s?cret politi c?l organization, commonly known as the "Know iNotniDg 1.-Because its proceedings aro conducted in setrosy, and its and its candidates are shrouded in mys tery nnd concealment, and shun the light of day and the test of free diocus&iofl And ?iaznination. V.?Becaute its mcmbt-rs are bound by Holemn oathr. to a blind ( b-dUaco to the dictates of others in their social and political relations. 3 - Because it enjoys the denial of the truth, Ineul ""?Ml promotes insincerity and dupltcity, and ? tides the bold, open, manly conduct and conversation which chsrncvrb.e the mau of honor and tho freeman. J-?Because it craatts an organized baud of secret spies in evtry community to watch ithe conduct am catch the wore s of tbe unsuspecting, to be reported to their secret midnight oounoib, and made the fuandatiju of peiFOiialacd political proscription and persecution. 6.?B-cau.e it la of social cofidcsnoe, cad of all that is dear and valuable in the social relation 0 ?Became it mal.os religion a tei-t of qualiticati-ro for office, in violation of the constitution, and to tho en gendering cf ill-will snd strife among religious sects to the disgrace cf religion, and to the disturbance of the public peace. 7. Because it excludes all persons of fore'gn birth, of every grade and character, trom all political rights and mefennen., tho policy of the roundeis of the Republic, and procHimieg that America abatl no longer be " the asyinm .'or tbe oppmsed of all nations ? 8. Becanse it unites Southern men In filial party bends and poHtiralorgnnizat on with the worst elaun-nts o' Nontcin fstatlcitm,a&d foiees'them to ylsld jouala r.snre to the dangerous, desSuctlve. and disgraceful movemer.ts c/sbolitiorlsm. 0. Because It prohibits In ?p!rit, If not in terms any tSMitance by tee Southern States to Noi thorn use?m Ficn or unconstitational oppri-aslon. 10. Ocaufe its organization and mode cf proceeding, its aims and objects, Ba form and spirit., are Babvarsive of those great pr aclples of ciTil anc rel-giont 11 >erty which have ever been, end we trust will ever coutmus to be. tne pride and b.ast of the American people. 3. Resolved, That we consider It the duty of tvary pat riot who loves the constitution and the Cn-. -n of orarv citizen who njir i ths peace, good order, and dignity of society-or every Christian who advo .aten the liberty of conscience snd of religious worship-of evsry true southern man who iv dsteranned to maintain to Iho Inst extremity the iqool rights of the South unterthe eon s itnilon? to unite in the overthrow of this uiiscliiovous and dangerous patty. 4.

The Teat Liquor Cause In Westchester County. TO THB EDITOR OF THE HERALD. Morrisania Jane 5,1855.

Toe tuit was brought by tte overseers of the poor of the town cf West Farms, agaUat Mr Jefferson Levis, proprietor of tbo West Farms Hotel. The action was for alleged v oiationa of the ltfth section ol the Bevfced Statutes, entitled ' ef excise and the rega l*vi- n of taverns and groceries." whi h provides <n subs'am e, tlai whoever shall sell any stroog or kpirituons liquors, to be drank on his prcml.-es in quantities ot Jess than live gallons, without having a licttite theretor as a tavern keeper, shall forfeit twenty-five dollsis.

Be reviewed the history of intoxicating liquors, and of iegislatton i" rtfercnce to them, to s ow tiat the sate of liquor wss free by the wmmoo law, and that the principal object of the fitstnte on wbicn the action was based, was not prehlDiVion, but to subject sa es sud licsn a, s to tsxstion; and contended that tweasy-utth section ot the Maine law now in force, by abolishing tbe statute authorising licenses to tavai n keepers to sell llqncr, in effect repealed the i estriotive sections of the same statute, as th-y were mtra Id aid cf such principal orject.

The New Ilampsiire election for Becalm baa gene very rmoctsly for the aides, who, it was fondly hoped by 'heir adversaries, would kiu-ly tall out for tbetr tenrflt. The plain tenth ia, that the present Ne* Hampshire Legislature, so far as the majority ia eoLoened, ia compcaed of men of more than average Intel'ec, and when such men look coolly at a matter that may lead to trouble, it la aa good aa aettlei. There ia much gained by sending men of aen-e to the Legislature. It was by sending ao manj' flats into cor State House, Vat the A. aori can party of Massachusetts got into ao confounded a anarl about nuns, grass widows, and committees of investigation.

The administration men are confident of national succeas, even if General Pierce shou'd he their candidate. But we can hardly suppose tfast Providence bas so far abandoned ns as that would imply. The democratic party may maintain Its hold of power, as a oonsequenoe of the inability of its foes to unite, but we msy be permitted to hope that it will find itself compelled so far to defer to publio opinion as to make a complete change of kaders. II the South is to save the democracy hem defeat, it would lay the North under great obligations if it should demand the nomination of new men. The launch of the Menimac was a very trace ?sa fu'. affair, and, we chuckle soma over having got ahead of the constructors of her sister Mgates Dotting, however, can be inferred as to hsr future career frcm the Bu<cese that has thus far attended her. The Constitution, that luckiest of lackv ships, is said to have stuck fast when it was first dttsmpt edto launch her, an accident which alone prevented teT from being the first ship of war that was got into the water tinder the new organization of the navy. The crowd that assembled to see tee launch was very gn at. They do say, but perhaps it is gcaidal, that a booth for the sale of liquor was allowed to be put up in the yard, whioh is the property of our common uncle, and not snbjeat io the lats of Mws^'-Us. Cer-aio it is, that weakness?f the legs and dizziness of tha head srne very oommtn oomplainu on the occasion; bat perhaps they were owing to an excess of enthu giant c feeling consequent on a patriotic ccntem p ation of cur naval gfeatcesa. It Is not very likely that naval gentlemen would do anything offsnsive to the fpi?it of tbo law. .v. Nutwi'bstar dtog tha dukices of the tiasei, the growth and change of Boston goes on as rapidly as tiver?perhaps more rapidly than ever. *n the Southern part of the city tne spirit of progress is especially buBy, and the buildings there in course of construction are fine vpe linens of M&loi e i lace block contains six dwellings, while there are others, equally good, going aj onFrank. lio, Blacketone and Chester squires.

They hsd quite a time to get Mr. Hilton out oftheplwe, and there was on Wednesday a pretty Utile fight carried on before the qaestion of oc op*?0* setted.
