The Spanish-Mexican Imbroglio.--its object.

New York, Oct. 9.
--The Washington 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 of Cuba. In the meantime, an expedition is being fitted out at Havana for Mexico, 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 and France 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.
