VIA HAVANA.
ciiAiu.ESTON, jan. 16. By the schr.

evening in 10 days from Havana, we have
received from our obliging correspondent,
the Gazettes of that place to the 4th inst.
I hey contain extracts from Old and New
Spain, of later date than before received.
The Cadiz accounts arc to the 2.1th of
Nov. und from Vera Cruz they arc to the
I Uh ult.
The accounts given in the Havana pa
pers from Madrid, although brought
down to the 15th of Nov. do not appear,
from a hasty perusal, to be of much in
terest. Should we find imy thing, oti a
re-perusal, worth translating, it shall Lc
given in our next.
Under dale of Cadiz, Q tlli November,
a private letter says, " I have just heard
by a patrooti in 10 days from Barcelona,
(hat the factionists of Catalonia have
evacuated Sco de Urgcl, the national
troops having presented themselves in that
neighborhood and occupied the place."
I he Spanish schr. Amahle ''ereiu, which
arrived at Havana on the 2Ttli ult. brought
accounts from Mexico to the middle of

Gen Santa Asa, why, having been bad-

on the 6th. he also published a letter to ,
I TV k bide, in which he details the scrvi
ce he had rendered, to make him Empe
ror, but finding that he had infringed up
on his oath, and the treaties of Iguala and
Cordova, he was now obliged to proclaim
the Hefiublic, which he did among 2000
bayonets, and the most sincere applause
und vivas. This spirit of opposition to
Itibbidk, had also extended itself into
the interior if Mexico, and Gen. Santa
Ana, had been joined by several divis
ions of the army. A flag of truce was i
sent to the Custle of St. Juan de Uloa, by
Gen. Santa Asa, but the only answer
received was, that a more liberal inter
chance between the Castle and the city,
would be acceded to.

F.xtrait of u letter from un offi reran board the If.
S. Canute Inm Anx,dtitedat Havana, Jan. 10.
"We arrived at this place on the 3d
inst. from Vera Cm, Tainpiro, after
a long and boisterous passage of 38 davs
from the former poit, with Mr, Poinsett,
of your city, on board, and we ate now
only waiting a wind to take our depar-
tu i e for Norfolk. 1 have littlt of impor
tance to communicate, except some cir
cumstances which occurred about the
time of lumiuj' Mexico, (CJd ult.) A
short time previous to our sailing, an in
surrection broke out in Mexico, beaded
by Santa Ana, the Governor of Vet;.
Cruz, which appeared likely to terminate
successfully, as four other provinces had
co-operated with him, with a view of put
ting down the usurper Itutbiile ; the whole
empire, indeed, was in a stale of confo
sion. The celebrated soldier and patriot,
Vittoria, had come out from his reiiic
ment, where he had fir a long time re
mained dormant ; arid the hopes and pray
ers of every liberal and enlightened man,
were put up for hi success. There is
little doubt, I think, but that cuiitriy will
be revolutionized in les than six months.
Our government, I owever, will doubtless
be soon correctly informed of the exact
state of glTirs in that quarter. Ill gotten
power is ever precarious s :nd such is the
precise situation of Iturbide he must
eventually fallfor his is a government
without system, und without 1 iws ; except
such as imperious and vi ril oit drspotis-n
has established farimpeii.il purposes.
His influence over the liiiiliiig soldicrv
tarried him to the throne ; without hw or
justice, he proclaimed himself lunprror
of Mexico, and dissolved the Congress,
which had been elected by the pimple.
To a new Congress, funned bv himself,
he proposed to establish Militai y Ti ibti
iials throughout the Lmpirc,to ronsist of
two officers and a Lawyer, of his oivti
choice, who were to bear stirh rank and
titles as he in his good pleasure should
think proper to grant. This military
rcuit were to have full power and prii
lege to try, condemn and execute, w ho
ever it iniht adjudge guilty of exciting
dissentions amongst the people, or speak
ing unfavorable of the Lmperor, or the
State. 1 his monstrous stride of military
despoli'm exceeds any thing within the
range of my historical reading. But
Mexico owes her delivery from its thial
dom, to a spirited Congress, who firmly
and eloquently rejected the proposition,
as contrary to reason, to justice, and to
ihe welfare of the people. Kvery friend
to liberty, and to rational freedom, must
wish success to Vittotia.

Singular Occurrence. In a county of
Pennsylvania, situate between the Dula
waru and Schuylkill, in the early part of
December, a muscular, athletic young
fTnan, feeling that inclination for society,
which is natural and proper, visited at the
house of a farmer, whose daughter pos
sessed the charms to excite the inclina
tion of some other young men of the vi
cinityand on the same evening several
met at the same place. After a variety
of conversation, and some boasts of
strength and agility, a trifling wager was
laid, that the young lady could throw him
at a wrestling match ! She reluctantly,
no doubt, engaged in the contest ; arid aftor
a few trips, succeeded in giving him a fair
fall. Unfortunately, he was unable to
rise, or muke the least exertion, without
the most excruciating pain ! The spec
tators of his fall succeeded in putting
him on a bed, sent for a neighboring sur
gcsn, who found the patient in much dis
tiess, and on examination discovered that
a dislocation of the tnigh at the hip j int
upwards and backwuds, had taken place.
By the assistance of four men, it was re
duced, and the young man is in a fair way
of recovery undoubtedly much chagiin
