HAVANA. Mnv 1. 1813. " Dear Sir : I now, fur the first lime since 1 hksv been a prisone. - , have had it in my power of nitunninir you of my miserable situation. 1 thought my aufi'erings were great before 1 Lndcd in Mexiio is soon as we landed I fuuod that we were all lost I then got permission In return home, uml was on boaul of a ship to return to the U States ; but, unfortunately for me, she was captured a few hours before .he was to have sailed. 1 made my escape to the shore, and went to Mini's furtilica'tion, uh c!. mounted 8 pieces if cannon the whole force to defend which, ani'iur.ted to 100 men. Mina entered the coun'ry with 600 men. The fort in which I was, was attacked on the 12th June, 1817; there wjs a cannonading between the royalists and the pnlrioU until the 15th, when the royalists, finding their f rce so much niie - ri'.r, came within ,rape ami musket shot with 13 pieces of cannon, and 25W men. The fort held oulfortcn hours. The Americans in the f"t, amounting to thirty, found they had to do all the Cghtinp; ; the remainder were Spaniards and Frenchmen, who proved cowards, although they declared they would blow up the furl he f irt they would be taken. The Americans, findimr thrTwcve cither to be tab n bv storm, and put to the sword, or be blown up, thought it best to prei'iit themselves 1 presented tr.v - helf. and Ike fort capitulated. The terms of capitulation were, that the lives ol the girri - ion should be ent to their respective countries.' They have ail been held as criminals, and loaded with irons. Those who presented llumselves wi'h me. Lad tlieir lioertv forten days passports were promised them, and as surances civen of being sent borne, e have, however, been d. Ui.icd as prisoner.

No ; experience has taught me to know, that when a man be comes reduced, there are few that will cast to wards him a look, from whirba conclusion mght be drawn, that the heart felt sympathy ! In a short time, I shall be sent to Cadix, where I am doomed to be detained a a prisoner for 10 years, Many are the conjectures, at this place, relative to the probability of a war breaking out between Spin an J A merira. I wish you to state my case to your friends at the department, a I persuade myself my government will be prompt in demanding my liberation. Such i my misery, that I never could have believed it within the capa city ofmau to endure. Mioa's expedition is lost, Col. Young, late of the U. 3. army, and seventy Americans, all of whom were attached to the late United States' army, were taken ana snot, with two American officers, the inornin" after 1 presented myself.

It is not tbe least curious part of this netr de - of the motives of the French inter position in the cause of the American rcvoluliou, that it ii ascribed to a Spanish urgency with the cabinet or Versailles, to seize the obvious opportunity for enfeebling the natural aud povmrlul enemy of the Bourbon family; which urgency on the part oi spam overcame, moun m out great dilliculty, the aversion of France to take up arms against a sea of troubles it being the wise maxim or old Alaurepas ana me uum nf th tniniitrv of Louis tiie 16th, tlien just advanced to the throne, tlut it was better to hear the ill Uiey bad IhauXo ny to ouiers uiey knewuotof. , From the Ualhmore TiUgraplu The editor of the Augusta Chronicle in endea voring to vindicate the gallant Georgians from the odious lniputauou ot ruins ineir iiueiiun m the cowardly assassination and conflagration at Chehaw villaze. is nw'u'iarlv severe on the tbe executive of that stute lor his ill - timed interll - rence with the duties of general Jackton.

Admitting thy were thria'.ened with danger from Hopo - nee's and Fcclineb' towns, what relief or tec u - nty did they rcceiie from the destruction of Che - haw, wlniiceiio danger could bi; apprehended, because there wire none there but old men, wo men ai.

They could have been relieved from no other danger than that which proceeded from Chehaw, ns captain Wright took care to avoid going near either Ho pjiiee' or ftiflemre' towns, and left all tin i r warriors to commit any ravage they pleased, so he himself escaped them, and further left them with an assurance that their hostility wa their greKtert bulwark of dilenrc, since the more iriendiy the more certain their destruction. Coptaii; Wright allcdgts iu justification of hi? iiroccediuitt at tiie Chehaw, that he acted under tlie nu'hoiity of the state of Georgia, ei;d hot of. tnat cl tho United States. In reply to which, the Augusta (Gecrsia) Chronicle ol the S'.h iu - st mt, observe. : Ihe facts in regard to t right are simply these. He was elected to command a company of draft ed mill t in fnun Savannah, and tpecially enm - uiistioned for that command : hut he was left :i'k nt Savannah, and it was understood he had declined the expedition. A iter the ompany had reached iierhaiis fort Gadsden or St. Marks, un der thu command of his hist lieutenant who bud been promoted to captain, and was recognized astuch in service, w - nt on to Hartford, theme to Milledgville, and under the face or this very commission. rerr ented himsclt to he senior captain in tiie United States' service, obtained from the governor, under his orders of 14th nf April, tbe ccmiuand of the ever raernorshic expedition. This lufiun - nis transaction took place on the 2Ut April, whilo Wright drew rations as an erfi - (erin the United Staled' sorviee', and while he i - at generjnly roiitideatd as such, an - t at an evidence of hit own opinion be applied afterwards to 1 e iiiusterrd out nl service by ihe oilior who niuslerod General Glascock's command out of civics ; ii - jt was refuted on account of irregularity in Ins mu;er rullr, nnd at late as 7th May apolied to the p.iyinaitcr of one of tiie regiments for Hunks.

Gas. eoxMi - wicATiosr. " 77iougA among the lust, not among the leant." , I hope it will be recollected that the pro. ceeds of the theatre this evening is awarded for the benefit cf V Piitchartl. Every one who attends this rational resort must acknowl edge that hii abilities as a Tragedian, are e qua), if not superior, to any other at present on our stage. For the admirers of tragedy Mr. Pi itchard has selected a rich treat in Shaks - pearc's celebrated play of Othello, which is universally allowed to be among the number of the poets best productions the partof Othello is to be sustained by himself. It may with truth be affirmed that the powers of this gentleman as a tragedian are of an excellent cast. Upon the present occasion therefore, Lis selection is judicious, there is ample scope in this charac - tcr.for the display of his best abilities, and we are fliiuly persuaded, that be will this evening convince his auditors, tliat he falls very little short of a Cooper or Cooke. We ardently hope that a crowded house w ill greet him on his en trance j an actor on his benefit n'glit, requires no greater incentive towards everting himself, but should " a beggarly account of empty boxes " buist full upon bis sight, it chills the ardor of his feelings, aud operates sensibly to Ins disadvantage for that evening.
