Washington, Oct. 0.
The public mind has been lately much
xcited, by fhc (lisdlosure of the startling '
ict, that the Cabinet was advised early
1 May, by our Minister in Paris, Mr.
tush, that the French Government was (
ostile to this country, and would seek .
n occasion for a quarrel, and further that
mollis Napoleon bad avowed the purpose, ]
" driven from his policy of pence, to make
mr first upon the United .State?. There (
\ no doubt that a strong letter to this ef- j
act was received by Mr. Clayton, and \
>eihaps/by the same packet which conevcd
to M. Poussin his instructions to : ,
eniand redress, for an alleged grievance,
i the detention of the Jfnr/enie, and that ,
i impressed Mr. Clayton with the belief
hat France was emulous of a difficulty.
,lIlho same letter of'May fld,-contains a ! ,
^commendation not noticed in the New ,
fork prints, to this effect?that the U. S.
hoitld exhibit a largo naval force in the J,
lcmierrancan, tnc minimum amount of L
rhich it states?and that a proper tone ]
f assumed at once by this Government. I,
'lie idea of Mr. llush is tliat Franco-is <
losely allied with the despotism of En- f
ope, mrtfcif she does,not make war upon ,
^ngianu, hot lor me reason, that she is ,
ot yet prepared for that encounter, and ,
hat Louis Napoleon will gratify the pas- ;
ion of flic'French for -wuv,<nnd his own j ,
innity to republican institutions, promote
is own ambitious views, exercise his na- | (
ional mayine, and (ill his cofters v ith the ; (
hinder of our commerce by war upon 1 (
lie United States.
I am very certain that some of the (
icmbers of the Cabinet'liave expressed I
pprehensions that tho difficulties of (
rhich ,wc arc thus forewarned are. not i
koly to lxi avoided. For several weeks j
ast, tho Philadelphia North American, j
paper supposed to represent the viav s ,
f Mr. Clayton has repeatedly and earn- (
stly warned the commercial community, ' j
liat tliey were indulging in a false seen- | (
ity in vegard to our relations with-Frnnce s
ntitted for nn eventful emergency should ^
no occur, I have no doubt., ihnt the j
Inierican spoke advisedly,and for that
;ason many presses of both parties have t
diculed what tljey called its croaking*. ^
