The expedition against Mexico.

The British men-of-war Sansparell, Dougal and Conqueror, having embarked eight hundred marines at Plymouth, were to have sailed on the 10th inst., for the Gulf of Mexico, but were prevented by stormy weather, and orders had been issued by the Admiralty that they were not to leave until there was a prospect of more settled weather.

Admiral De la Glavierre had reached Toulon, and the french ships destined for Mexico had been ordered to sail immediately in whatever port they were.

The London Observes says it was at the distance of England that the American Government is to be invited to join in the expedition.

Speech of Corey Isabella, of Spain, on her progress of re-annexation.

The Paris papers publish the text of the Queen of Spain's speech on the opening of the Cortes. She said:--

‘ Gentlemen Senators and Deputies you will be happy to learn that our difference with Veneancla has ended in a satisfactory manner. A just reparation has been made to our country for offices perpetrated against its guarantees will prevent the repetition of similar misdeeds.

Disorder and excess have reached their height in the unfortunate country of Mexico.

Treaties having been violated and rights forgotten. My subjects having been exposed to serious attacks and continual dangers it became indispensable at length to make an example of salutary rigor.

With this object my government had made the necessary preparations, when two great nations found that they had to complain of acts of violence on the part of the Mexican authorities. Our wrongs were common; our action should be joint. My government desired as much. Proper steps for this purpose were at first favorable; but the result did not correspond with the desires of the other two nations.

Subsequently France, England and Spain arranged together to obtain that satisfaction which was due to them, and to prevent the repetition of offences, which scandalized the world and outraged humanity. This the desires will be accomplished, the execution of which has been the constant object of my Government. At the proper time an account will be rendered to you of the convention which, with this object, has been signed by the representatives of the three Powers.

That Spanish island, the first discovery of which immortalized the name of Columbus, forms once more a part of our monarchy The inhabitants of St. Domingo, menaced by foreign enemies, wearied by internal disorders invoked in the midst of its conflicts the august name of the nation to which it had been indebted for civilization and life. It would have been unworthy of us to contemplate its sufferings without emotion to also white appeal, empired by great recollections and by an inextineuis table love for Spain. Convinced that this appeal that these wishes, were spontaneous and unanimous, I did not he a to welcome them, more attentive to honor than to convenience of my people.

The inhabitants of St. Domingo have seen their wishes realized. The elements of riches which their fertile soil contains begin to be developed in the bosom of profound peace, and the zeal as well as the justice of my Government and of the authorities will efface the traces of post discord.
