THURSDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 21,18C7.
Our readers will pardon us, wo feol assured, if we
have of lato paid but little attention to affairs in
the Empire Republic beyond the Rio Grande. The
political situation at homo has been a subject of
continuod anxiety, and thoro has boon so little re?
cently in the aspect of public affairs all over the
United States, that could famish any source for
sincere congratulation, that it is with a bad grace
any American journal can address itself to the task
of reviewing affairs in Mexico, and drawing infer?
ences from its late history, disparaging or prejudi?
cial to the descendants of the Aztecs, the Monte
zumas, or the later Spanish graft. But as the
wires, within the last few days, have brought some,
important items of intelligence, some of them per?
haps mero rumors, we have thought a resume of
late events in that country may not prove unin?
The condition of things in Mexico is amomalouB.
"While there is a party of the Church and a Liberal
party, and anouier that adheres to the Emperor's
government ; this division furnishes no real clue
to the condition of things. The possession of po?
litical power is disputed by half a dozen or moro
military loaders, who cannot be saii to profess
any princip/e (without doing great violence to tho
word,) but who are ready to oppose all adversa?
ries by force of arms, and to shoot or banish any
rival, whom fortune may deliver into their hands.
There appears to be no " people" there, in our
sense of that term. The mure adventurous range
themselves under one br other of the chiefs, the
rest of the people are never heard of, exoept when
they are forced to pay some heavy sum of money
to an adverso chieftain. It is altogether curious,
to find after nearly four centuries bf European
civilization, such an anomalous state of affairs,
neither more nor less than actual brigandage gov?
erning a large, populous and healthy country.
Why such is the case is ah enquiry foreign to our
The French troops,.we learned by telegraph
yesterday, have at last finally evacuated the city of
Mexico. In the same issue yesterday, we also
published the French Emperor's address to the
Corps L?gislatif, on tho re-assembling of that
body. In it there is the following reference to the
Mexican expedition :
"In another part of tho globe we have been
obliged to employ force to repress legitimate
grievances, and we have endeavored to raise an ann
cient empire. The happy results at first obtained
were compromised by an inauspicious concur?
rence of circumstances. The guiding idea of the
Mexican expedition was an elevated one, to Tequ?
?ate a people, and impart among them ideas ot
order and progress; to open vast outlets to our
commerce, and leave the recognition of services
rendered to civilization to mark our path. Such
was my desire and yours; but as soon as the ex
. tent of our sacrifices appeared to me to exoeed the
interests which had called us across the ocean, I
determined, of my own accord, the recall of our
armv corps, in order that the Government ot tho
United States might comprehend that it was only
the absence of conciliation in policy which had
embittered relations, which, for the welfare of
both countries, should remain friendly."
A most unfortunate faux pas, this, of His Im?
perial Majesty. This reference, finely drawn, and
highly diplomatically non-committal though it is,
will not impose on any one. It will not heighten
the respect for his government in the eyes of the
United States. It will not soften the animosity,
entertained by MAXIMILIAN and his friends, for
such abandonment; nor will it soothe the irritation
or tue French people, who feel a double resent
thogreat expuuu. ..i-, .-- .-._,.,_
its failure has inflicted on the national prestige. It
is a lame and impotent conclusion to a magnificent
enterprise; and Ute end might have been different.
The Emperor MAXIMILIAN, in his own justifica?
tion, and with a view of obtaining the moral sup?
port cf the public opinion of Europe, has sent a
circular to his diplomatic agents in Europe. He
reminds the world that before he consented to as?
sume the crown he stipulated that the nation he
was invited to rule should be consulted, and he
also received large promises of foreign support
and of extraordinary means. A powerful alliance
was guaranteed him by a solemn treaty. TTia re?
sources, largely obtained in the form of a loan
from France, melted away rapidly under the ne?
cessity of providing for the support of a very
costly foreign army. The civil war was protract?
ed by reason of the presence of foreign troops.
Before it had boen poasiMe tc conceive tho ob?
stacles that presented themselves to the forma?
tion of a sufficiently numerous Mexican army it
was announced that the French proposed retiring
before the stipulated time, and the concentration
of their forces soon afterward commenced, leaving
large districts abandoned to the inroads of the dis?
affected. This naturally had the effect of disheart?
ening the Imperialists and of encouraging the In?
surgents, and the civil war, which had begun to
languish, quickly blazed up again. The Emperor
MAXIMILIAN was informed that negotiations had
been set on foot for the formation of an alliance
between France and the United States, with the
object of restoring peace and tranquility to Mexi?
co, and that it had been laid down as a basis of
such alliance that the Mexican Government should
assume a republican form and a liberal character.
This was a very severe blow to MAXIMILIAN, and
to that numerous and respectable part of the Mex?
ican people which had gladly gathered round him,
trusting in his good intention and hopeful, that
under his rule, days of happiness and prosperi?
ty might yet be in store for their long-distracted
county. AH such hopes were now frustrated, and
fresh gloom and many misfortunes accumulated
over Mexico. Obviously, the fundamental condition
of the agreement between France and the United
States was imcompatible with the existence of the
Empire and with the integrity of the Mexican terri?
tory. The country was rapidly reverting to a state
of anarchy. Encouraged by the prospect of plunder
and bloodshed, the outlaws and brigands BO plenti
ful in Mexico flocked to the insurgent banner. The
Emperor MAXIMILIAN saw no escape from the false
position created for him by the desertion of his
ally except resignation of th crown which that
ally had, in the first instance, induced him to
accept. He resolved to restore to the nation the
power it had placed in his hands. As a preliminary
step to the carrying out of that intention, he con?
voked at Orizaba his Council of Ministers and the
Council of State. Both those bodies strongly op?
posed bis abdication, which they declared would
lead to the ruin of the country, and urged him to
organize the national army, and make efforts to
maintain himself. It was suggested that a nation?
al congress on an ample basis should be convoked
in order that it might decide what form of govern?
ment the country desired, propose measures of
organization, and adopt means of creating re?
sources for carrying on the administration. The
Council of State agreed to deliberate on these
measures, and the Emperor consented to remain
at the head of affairs and to labor for the regener?
ation of the country. A manifesto was published,
addressed to the nation. It is acknowledged that
the Emperor, of the French gave instructions to
Marshal BAZAINE to support MAXIMILIAN'S Govern?
ment and plans, so far as was consistent with the
concentration of troops and other steps that had
to be taken to prepare for their approaching evac?
uation of Mexico.
At the last advices hy mail the embarkation of the
French was progressing, and a large fleet of trans?
ports waa expected to take tho whole force away.
It was probable the last French soldier would be
shipped before or by the lat of March. Marshal
BAZAINE, acting under instructions. from home,
doubtless, had issued a circular or proclamation
informing Frenchmen who should join the Mexi?
can army that they would do so at tho peril of be?
ing denationalized. They have no permission to
join the Mexican army, and if they do they must
not look to France for protection. NAPOLEON ia
resolved to w*?h his hands clean of any possible
difficulty with or about Mexico hereafter.
Kia evident, too, that Marshal BAZAINE wanta
MAXIMILIAN and the Imperialists ont of the way so
that the liberal General PoBPraTO DIAZ may occu?
py the City of Mexico as Boon ?a he evacuates it.
DIAZ was approaching the city. . The Marshal see?
ing, probably, that this would prevent unnecessary
bloodshed end arnarchy, acta in ? spirit of human?
ity toward the inhabitants.
In the meantime, several of the Mexican chiefs,
who had linked their fortunes with tho empire,
were preparing to make a desperate straggle to
save themselves. MARQUEZ and HTBAMON were
most conspicnons in tjjo new movement against
JUABEZ. They wero mak:ug forced loans, and
MARQUEZ was most active in doing this in tho City
of Mexico, Puebla and Very Cruz. Men wore being
pressed into the sorvico of theso chiefs in the most
rigorous manner, and sent- forward to chock the
march of tho labor?is towards the Capitol. But
hardly any ono boliev?s they would be successful.
With all tho effartB they were making their moans
and force wero small. Their severe measures of
impressment and forced loans would operate
against thom as soon as tho Liberals approached.
Tho opinion was general that both MASQUEZ and
MERAMON would soon.have to fly from the country,
if not captured, to savo themselves. And since
then wo have had a telegraphic dispatch announc?
ing the capturo of MIR AITON. SO also 'las the cap?
turo of OniEOAbeen announced; andth^r? oortain
ly has boen a rumor of tho capture also of JUABEZ.
It wDl'bo some time boforo wo can hear the truth
as regards affairs in Mexico; and still longer be?
fore such truth will bo creditable to the people of
that country, or pleasant to their friends, neigh?
bors and well-wishers.
