In many respecta wo npprohond thnt tho docn
mont will operate inischiovously, and that its pub
lication IB a miotako that will add to tbb difficulty
of tho Prouidont'a ^position. If it has any signifi
cance, it is equivalent to a declaration on his part
that, notwithstanding tho action of Congress and
tho determination of tho North, ho intends to con
tinuo bia opposition to the amendment and bia
efforts'to provont its ratification.
Thoro would bo valid causo of regret in the
mere knowlotlgo of tho circumstance, that tho
attitudo and aims of the President havo undergone
no chango. It wcro bad enough to Imow thal tho
irresistible current of Northern opinion in favor of
tho nmendmont had noithcr convincod bim of its
necessity, nor taught him tho inutilifcy of further
ro.'j'uitarco to it; but tho lnttcr becomes a griovous
error when it is considered as a cnusoless, gratu
itous expression of opinion by tho Exccutivo, on a
graTO question of policy at a timo and in a form
which can only sorvo to pggrnvato existing diflicul
tios, and intensify tho bitterness which unhappily
oharactorizos their diHcuo9ion.
It c:'ihiot have boon requisite to make known the
views entertained by Ibu President touching tho
amendment, for thoso woro lons ago communicated
to Congress, toRcthor with tho roasoning upon
which thoy arc based; nor has anght occurred that
could lilford a pretext for tho rovival of an opposi
tion which recent cvonts havo shown to bo bootless.
The President's oxporionco of Kpooch-making
should havo satisfied bim of tho futility of bia on
doavom to stem tho popular currront und win tho
controlling elements to his side. Tho roasonablo
f?resumption is, that inasmuch RS tho President, by
lis persistent opposition to tho Bottled resolves of
tho Northern peonlo, rondored thom finnor thau
before, this manifesto over Mr. Browning's signa
turo will tond to strengthen tho position of Con
?roas, and to mako thom moro determined in tho
emand for tho jjmendmont aH tho groundwork of
a national compromise.
The moro judicious frionds of the President did
hopo that tho vordiot of tho people, an heard in
tho rocont oloctions, would induce him to reconsid
er his docision, and to recommend tho nmendmont
to tho friendly consid?r?t ion of the Southern Statos.
Whon tho emptiness of this expectation becamo
apparent, a dosiro provailod among many who bad
faithfully stood by him that ho should, at any rato,
waivo bia hostility to tho measure, and allow tho
issuo to bo fought out without his interference one
way or another.
Tho Herald says its appeals aro groundless, and
Says Mr. Browning, another blow which tho pro
posed amendment aims at tho Government which
our fathers founded, is in the chango of tho basis
of representation. What arc wo to understand by
j tho Government which our fathers founded ? This
is whero wo stand. Wo cannot deal now with tho
Government which our fathors founded ; it ceased
to exist with tho abolition of slavery. Wo cannot
plead tho Constitution as it was ; wo mu?t take it
as it ia, and doal with things, not as wo would havo
thom, but ad wo find them, Mr. Browning.
Tho TForW asks : "Ought tho South to ratify
tho Constitutional Amendment ?" and proccods to
A point of considerable interest to tho South, on
which tho World can Bpoak with considorablo moro
authority than any other Northern journal, ?3 the
position of tho Northern Doniocracy in respect to
tho amondmont. if tho Democratic party of tho
North should commit itself to tho amendment,
thereby making the North unanimous in demand
ing its ratification, such unanimity could not bo
diarogatded by the South ia dctcrmini*;; ita own
Within the last foii. wooka wo havo, with much
pains and no small solicitude, attempted to guage
tho sentiment of Hie party on this point. The rc
oult ia a conviction that tho Nor thorn Domooracy
will never endorse tho amondmont as a condition
of restoration. If wo might toko it upon us to nd
viao our Southern fellow-citizens wo would counsel
thom to ro^ocfc tho proposed amoadmont, to yield
quiet obedience to all constitutional laws, to main
tain order, to protect and oncourago tho froedinon
by equal lawii, and to abstain as c.vofully from
agitating questions a? F?deral politics as if thoy
hid no concern in thom.
Tho only hopo of rodrcaa ia in Northern justice,
when it bocomos evident that thoy aro determined
to await this with dignified reserve; that thoy will
neither humiliate thomsolvco nor disturb tho penco
of tho country; that thoy will furnish no food to
agitation, bnt quietly domoan thomsolvcs as law
abiding Citizens, and patiently await tho roault, and
that nothing will shako thoir resolution not to bo
parties to thou- further humiliation.
Tho Tribuno saya: "Tho President and Mr.
Browning buliovo that it is not ascertained that wo
will cavo tho Government. To this tho American
pooplo enter au indignant denial. Tho dread
which Mr. Johnson and his advisors affoct that tho
Government is in danger of destruction, is notfolt
by tho pooplo, and still loss do thoy fear that thoir
diroct ropresontativos in Congress aro tho onomioa
of its existence."

A COUMUNIOATIOX FBO-i OEMBBAX, OUT-DA TO OENE
WABITIKOTON, Monday, Ootobor 29.-Tbo follow
ing special dispatch has just boon rocoivod at this
Bureau : ?
NEW ORLEANS, Moaday, Octobor 29.-General:
On my arrival in this city I road in tho nowspapers
an official communication, signed by you and ad
dressed to tho commandor of tlio sub-district of the
Kio Grande, Brownsville, Texas. Said communica
tion touchos and decides, in a military manner, in
ternational quostiona of a grave import concerning
tho neutrality laws, which aro violated from the mo
ment you prom iso tho ho artiest support to the adh?
rents of Sonor Juarez, and donomi.iato a faction
tho npholdera of tho legitimate Government of
Moxico.' Tliis, Sir, although indirectly, ia an at
tempt to iinpo30 op that nation a Government
against its will and against its constitutional laws.
It ia also an attempt to into?foro in the intornal
questions of tho ltopublio of Moxioo, which abo
alone has tho right to deoido. The Government of
tho United Stales has not heretofore taken auy part
in them. I at flrst could not understand your com
munication; but maturo reflection convinced mo at
last that it did not concern mo. Such was my im
pression' and tho day before yostorday I called at
your residence to bavo tbo honor of paying yomny
rospocta, in testimony of the good relations existing
between the United Statos and tho Mexican Re
Sablio, which I hoartily doslro to proaorvo. Youtor
ay, howovor, two officials of yonr staff handed mo
a copy of tho above-montioncd dooumont, with
out anto-oommunication, for me, and only with my
nmni) written on tho onvolopo, as a sign (hat
it was addressed to mo. I onco moro road its
contents, and could not bo porsuaded that it
concerned me at all, or what you racnnt*by trans
mitting it to mo in uuoh a manner, for reasons to
willoh it ia at presont not nocoasary to rofor, but
whioh aro woll known to your Government and to a
great portion of tho inhabitant-? of tho United
.States. I have boon residing hi Now York, and loft
that city on tho 25th inst. on the way to my native
country, travorsing tho territory of this illustri
ous nation, under tho safo g nido and protection of
im laws. It is not ignored in the United States
that I am the Constitutional Pro .-dont of tho Mexi
can Republic; that uuoh position 1 oquiios of me the
performance of groat and painful duties, from
whioh no one, unless violating tho laws, can divort
mo bnt tbo sarao Supremo national will that grant
ed mo-tboir votos. That it is not the defacto Gov
ernment of Juaroz, tbo only ono friendly to tho
United States, but that tho groat Liberal party of
my oountry is also friendly, and Juarez coascd to
roprosent it fruin tho day ho -. iolatcd tho Constitu
tion of the Republic. For tho above reasons I de
ny that I oroated or reprosontod a faction.
I am tho truo and only roprosontativo of
tbo constitutional law of Moxico, to which
nation. I rbpoat, belongs the right to decide
ita intornal questions. For. tho same roason
that I ropresont the constitutional principles of
Moxico, I havo acted, during my rosidonoe in the
Unitod States, with tho pronrioty and discretion
whioh my mission demands. The superior authori
ties of tho United Statos? havo moro than ono proof
of tho truth of my assertion. I am determined to
act always with tho aamo pronrioty and discretion,
and yon mayreat assu-.-cd that I will not violeto
tho neutrality spoken of in your communication.
ThOHo who support my claims have not oven takon
part in the cons pi rao io s whioh havo boon formed on
the Bio Orando to subvert the present ordor of
thirds on tho Mexican side. Li conclusion, I must
Mato that the roaaop that Juarez lias horotoforo
boon oonsidorod a? the hoad of tho Liberal Gov
ernment of Moxioo, ia ovi-big to tbo faot of my no
coasary absence from that country, the evidonco of
which can be provan by official aooumonbs that I
th*r* alrady publiahod. I do no1 admit that your
communication applies to mo. Reasons of public
policy, which I do not desire to mention, and aro
roadily understood, nfilrm mo in this belief; other
wise I would bo moro oxplicit, and protest against
said communication in tuo namo of tim Moxican
Republic, and oftho lows of nations, appoaling for
justico, if nccosaary, to tho wiso and liberal laws of
the United States.
I havo the honor to bo, your obd't Bcrv't,
, (Signed) J. O. ORTEGA.
