Important from Havana.
The N. Y. Herald of Tuesday contains !
a letter from its correspondent in Havana, i
dated " March 2nd," in which he makes
some astounding disclosure, if they can be
It is stated by the writer that arrangements
had been entered into by the King
of France and the Q.ueen of Spain, the re- :
suit of which was, that the latter should
assist the Infante Don Enrique to conquer i
Mexico, and establish a monarchy there. !
Don Enrique, Continues the writer, has '
been appointed High Admiral of the Spanish
fleet j and an interview with the British :
Ambassador at Madrid, received the assu- j

a Spanish Monarchy in Mexico.
When all the necessary arrangements arc j
completed, Don Enrique is to arrive at i
Havana with o fleet, which will bring :
10,000 men ; whence they are to sail for I
Mexico, where they will be aided by Santa ;
Anna, who will proclaim Enrique I, as King '
of Mexico. - !
Vera Cruz will be immediately attacked j
and surrounded by the Anglo-French-fleet, j
and the King will proceed to Mexico,
where after his coronation, he will proceed j
to nominate his cabinet. Santa Anna will
be appointed Captain General of the Mexi- j
can army for life, and be dubbed " Principe !
de la Fidelidad." After this the new Prince I
and Infante will go to fight the Americans, j
The only thing that makes this intelligence
worthy of notice, is the fact that there
is a great French and Spanish naval force j
stationed at Havana; and, according to;
this writer, almost every vessel that arrives :
from Spain at Havana comes with new
We may add to this matter a passage
from the Journal des debats, of Feb. 22d,
as containing, in connexion with the above j
reports, a declaration of serious importance : j
"The most distinguished men of the j
country seemed unanimously con vinced that j
experience has proved that the Mexican na- j
tion must return to the direction of a monarchy j
or perish. Perhaps the trial Mexico now la- j
bors under, awakening the nation from I
their present torpor, will serve I he progress ol j
this cause] but Mexico is solely bent to one j
thought, that of resisting the invasion?and j
nothing can be more natural."
A Christian Clioclaw. I
It may be remembered that, a few days j
ago; we mentioned that a Choctaw Indian, j
Dixon W. Lewis, had been ordained by ;
? Bishop Soule, of the Methodist Episcopal
Church South, in view of his appointment
as a missionary to that tribe. We find the
following account of this gentleman in the
Richmond Christian Advocate.
Dixon W. Lewis is a Choctaw of pure
blood, of benign and thoughtful countenance,
stout built and is now in his twentyfirct

the streets in his "Breech-about," he was
taken into the house of a kind Christian
lady now residing iu Mobile, and fed at her
table. He says the blessing she piously
asked before eating impressed him very
deeply, though he understood not a word
that was said. Dixon was pursuaded lo go
to a Sunday School. He learned to read,
and was converted to the faith and obedience
of the gospel. The Juvenile Missionary
Society of Mobile took him under its
care, and sent him to Alabama Centenary
Institute, bearing his expenses, clothing
him and supplying him with books. From ;
Centenary Institute he was sent, by the !
same benevolent society, to JSmory College,
Georgia. At the session of the Alabama
Conference in 1846 he was admitted on trial
in the travelling connection, and apposnted
to labor among a large remnant of his own
tribe, then living in Kember county, Mississippi.
His people, though there was not a Christian
among them, very soon and willingly
built him a school house and a church; and
Ibus the Choctaw Indians, with a much
wore enlightened policy than is frequently
displayed among ourselves, planted in their
* midst semultaneously, the two greatest levers
of social reform the world has ever

His school opened with 36 8cholnrs,embr8cing
children five y eats old lo adult of 38. He
instructed them a ad prayed with thera^and
in three months 32 of them were hopefully
converted. All these joined tho Church
'= - <
but four, and the reason why these did not
join was, to use his own language, " because
two of them were two little, and the other
two children of proud clieifs." At the close
of his conference year he reports 103 conversions,
and a church organized among
theChoctawa 08 strong. His father among
these converts, and many of his relations;
and and old man over 100 years old.
In reply to tny question. " What ap'
Deals do vou find most effectual iri nddrnss
' ing an Indian congregation?what argu- I
ments dlj you use: Do you persuade or
alarm ; terrify by the awfulness of hell, or
allure by the brightness of heaven?" He
answered: You can't scare and Indian ? '
The best way.of dealing is to represeut God
as one who claims and has a right to his i
obedience ; and then tell him how and in j
what to obey." "What were your first j
encouragements that the word was produ- j

answered, '-An increased respect for the !
The Choctaws, during the Inst fall and i
winter, were removed by the General Go- j
vernment agent beyond the Mississippi, to '
the Indian Territory. Thither Dixon will!
follow them. At the late Alabama Confe- j
rence he was transferred to the Indian Mis- I
sion Conference. Dixon W Lewis dresses !
in the style of the u whites," and with good
taste, and commands the English language !
with singular facility and propriety.
A curious cau^cfor War.?In the yeor ,
1005 some soldiers of the commonwealth!
of Alodena ran away with a bucket from a
public well, belonging to the state of Bologa. j
This implement might be worth a shilling,
but it produced a bloody quarrel, which i
was worked up into a bloody war. Henry !
king of SarJina for the Emperor Heury j
the second, assisted the Modenese to keep,
the possession of the bucket; and in one j
of'.lie battles he was made prisoer. His fa- ;
therthe Emperor ofTered a chain of gold that ;
would encircle Bologna which is seven j
miles in compass for his sons ransom , but j
in vain. After twenty two years imprison-;
ment, and his father being dead , he pined j
away and died. His monument is still i
exiaui m me cnurcn oi tue uominicans. ;
This fatal bucket is still exhibited in the ;
tower of the Cathedral ofModena , enclosed j
in an iron cage
Important to the Ladies ?The London
Gazette contains some important information
for the ladies, with regard to the
manner of placing their lips when they desire
to look amiable digmfiod, &c It suggests
that when a lady would compose Iter I
mouth to a bland and serefte character she |
should, just before entering the room, say j
Besom, ami keep the expression into which
the mouth subsides until the desired effect
upon the company is evident. If, on the
other hand, she wishes to assume a distinguished
and some what nublei branny, not
suggestive of sweetness, she should say
Brush, the result of which is iufalliable. If
she would make her mouth look srnnll
iinrl nrpttv <t!iir Vltn Vint if !?*-?

mouth be already too small and need enlarging,
she must say Cabbage. Ladies, when
having their daguerreotypes taken, may observe
these rules with some advantage.
Augubtin Itukbidk.?The correspondent
of the New-York Spirit of the times states
that one of the Mexicans cavaly companies
which evacuated Victoria as General Quitman
approaced it, was commanded by Auirnstin
Iturbide.theson of Emperor lturbide.
He received his education in Philadelphia,
and part of his family are now residing in j
that city. Should lie ever meet the Pennsylvania
volunteers, he will find old friends
and school-fellows- All the sons of the Em
peror lturbide have possessed a loyal devoto
the land of their father's unfortunate career,
and all, except the youngest, \yjio is a
native of New-Orleans, were born in Mexico.
Murder.?We have seen a letter from
Orangeburg, under date of the 15th inst..
which states that a murder had been committed
in that District on the Tuesday previous,on
the body of Mr. Benjamin Plum,
a na'ive of Poland,but lor several years a resident
of this city. He had for some months
been peddling in that District, and while
on the road side, exposing his wares for sale,
was murdered by a negro from one of the
adjoining plantations ; who has been arrested.

Counterfeit BiLLs.-Of the denomination
of Two Dollars of the Branch of the B;tnk
of the State of Sonth Carolina, at Camden,
are in circulation to a great extent. They
cannot be mistaken, as the paper is course,
the engraving is miserably executed, and the
signniures of D. L. Di'SauPsure, Cashier,
and Thomas Salmond, President, very bad
ly imitated. The bills which we have seen,
are dated 13th January, 1841, and are nayable
to " John Cant," which is intended for
"John Cantcy" who w.is a Director at that
date. The vignette portraits are so badly executed
as not to be r< cognized.

last, twenty-six sheep belonging to Mr.
