The Spanish-Mexican Imbroglio.--its object.
New York, Oct. 9.
correspondent of the Times,
under date of yesterday, says that highly important advices have been received from Cuba
The Spanish war steamer Leone
was waiting at Cadiz
for the result of the Cabinet
conference in relation to an European coalition against Mexico
, and that the advices of the ultimatum of Spain
might be immediately dispatched to the Governor-General
In the meantime, an expedition is being fitted out at Havana
, under the pretext that its destination is San Domingo
The expedition will consist of six batteries howitzers, and 10,000 men, and they will be ready to start the latter part of next month.
It is given out that Spain
is taking these steps against Mexico
on her own responsibility, but advices state definitely that England
send their quota of men, and will co-operate with fleets in the Gulf
The whole country will be startled by this movement, and the public will view the regulation of Mexican
affairs as the least important.
The object evidently looks further North.
