I am silent; ‘twas not this | For which you sent, I hope.

I will be silent; it was not silence for which you sent, I assume.  i.e. the Avocatori sent for Mosca so that he could speak to them and thereby clear the ‘misty’ confusion. 

Note the potential interpretation of this threat of silence as a parodying of Iago’s oath at the close of Othello, when he swears that ‘From this time forth [he] never will speak word’ (V.ii.304).
