Mexico and Maximilian.
The correspondent of the National
Intelligencer, 'writing from the city of
Mexico, says that Maximilian made an
"extraordinary speech" there on the
16th ult., the forty-fourth anniversary
of Mexican independence, intended
undoubtedly as ti warning to tho
United States. The writer proceeds
If anybody has been under tho
impression that Maximilian was about
quitting Mexico because he wished to
avoid complications with us, he has
been grievously mistaken. Wishing
to commit himself irrevocably to re?
main in Mexico, he said:
"No influence in this world can
make me waver in my duty; every
drop of my blood is Mexican now,
and if God sends fresh dangers to
threaten our country, you will see mo
fight in your ranks for its indepen?
dence and integrity. I am willing to
die at the foot of our glorious ban?
ner, because no human power can
wrest from me the trust with which
yon endowed me."
No more direct menace could be
made to the United States. Maxi?
milian has gone too far ever to say
that lie has been mistaken, and that
the Mexican people do not desire
imperial institutions. It is evident,
from the tenor of advices from Paris,
that this determination of Maximilian,
as well as the abandonment of the
journey of his wife to Belgium, aro
the result of direct orders from Na?
poleon, who is determined to moot
Maximilian, then, has altered his I
mind, and intends to "fight it ont on
that line." Mrs. Max. has determined
not to go horne to her papa just now; j
and, in addition to this, American
Consuls in Mexico, it appears, are not
known there. They have no standing
at tho serene and mighty court.
The Intelligencer'& correspondent de?
clares that matters aro growing worse
instead of bettor in Mexico; that
guerillas are on the increase; that
new loaders are constantly making
their appearance; that they have de?
feated the Imperialists on many occa?
sions of late; that tho policy of con?
ciliation which was at first adopted
has been abandoned for one of rigor
and harshness, and that iu cons??
quence many terrible acts of cruelty
have recently been perpetrated by
Government officials, of which the
writer gives several particulars and
promises more. Thirteen hundred
French soldiers have, recently arrived.
We are informed also that slavery,
under the form of peonage, has just
\ been established by an official decree
of thc Emperor, and this has been
do'i - with especial reference to the
encouragement of emigration into
thc cotwitry from our Southern States,
for the Purpose of enabling tho E:* -
peror and Napoleon to erect ?. barri'
against the United States. Both >f
these personages, tho correspoi Lent
says, aro looking forward to trouble
with this country in reference to their |
pet scheme of founding an empire fn I
spite of our favorite "Monroe doc- |
trine," and professedly to check-mate
the encroachments of the great Kc
public upon the divine institution of
kingcraft. If all this is true, we shall
ere long have business with our plea?
sant neighbors of thc province
We have had several reports of late
to the effect that the indomitable
Juarez had shaken Mexican dust from
the soles of his feet and quit thc coun?
try. He keeps turning again, how?
ever, and wt1 rather guess he lias no
idea of quitting yet. We guess thc
report.-; originate from the pressing
desire of Mr. Max. to have him leave,
Our Government has not recognized
Maximilian or any of his agents.
The fact must be deemed highly sig?
nificant. What is the Government
waiting for if it intends to acknow
ledre Max. ? We don't believe it da?
s' lo give any countenance to this
Au.* usurpation in Mexico, and
we 1 ? it will not.
Mr. Seward, in his late Auburn
speech, made a very pointed and un?
mistakable allusion to this Mexican
question, from which we quote as fol?
With whatever jealousy we may ad?
here to our inherited principle of
avoiding entangling alliances with
foreign nations, the United States
must continue to exercise, as always
before our civil war they did exercise,
a just and beneficent influence in the
international conduct of foreign
States, particularly those which are
near to us on the continent, and which
are especially endeared to us by their
adoption of republican institutions.
[Applause.] The just influence of
ours was impaired, as ought to have
been apprehended by the American
people, when they fell into the distrac?
tions of civil war. With the return of
peace, it is coming back to us again,
in greater strength than ever. I am
sure that this important inte rest has
not been lost sight of by the P i esident
of the United States for a single mo?
ment, and I expect that we shall see
republican inj^titutions, wherever they
have been heretofore established
throughout the American continent,
speedily vindicated, renewed, and re?
invigorated. [Applause.] When I
shall sec this progress successfully
worked out on thc American conti?
nent, I shall then look for the signs
of its successful working throughout
the other continents.
Mr. Seward undoubtedly under?
stands the views of the President in
reference to this embroglio, and the
plainness of the language he has used
was probably meant to give the coun?
try an iukling of them.
When Gen. Forey invaded Mexico
at thc head of a French army, Napo?
leon, for once in his life, threw off al]
disguise and said equivocally that thc
United States must not be permitted
? to exercise predominant influence ii:
i America. That was when the per
J sonage at the Tailleries thought tht
! "Confederacy" un fait accompli. H<
did not doubt it for a moment. H<
thought Mr. Slidcll's concern wouli
establish its independence withou
any assistance from him of the Tuil
lories, and so he let slip the opportun?
moment for aiding Messrs. Slidell S
Co. and Messrs. Max. & Co. at tin
We think the Austrian will be dis
appointed in his expectations o
assistance from thc South-if he en
tertains any-to aid him in proppinf
up a bloody throne that has never ye
been established in Mexico or ac
knowledged in any proper way by th
He is clearly a usurper, without th
slightest claims, directly or indirectly
to be the governor of the oountr
whose people he is engaged in arrest
ing, plundering and murdering.
We trust the President of th
United Slates, in his message to Coi
gross, will take finn, dignified Ann
riean ground in reference to Max
niilian, and that he will maintain, i
we cannot doubt he will, the credi
the consistency and the tradition
honor of the American people. Th
petty Austrian despot and his hacke
should be made clearly to nnderstai
that he cannot be allowed to insult i
and <".u- institutions by living
Mexico, and that the sooner he leave
thc better it -will bc for his health ami
comfort. Tlie Mexicans don't want
him, evidently. The longer he stays,
the more dissatisfied they become.
He has not restored peace; and it is
manifest that there can be none in
Mexico ns long as he remains there.
There has been time enough since his
entrance into the country to demon?
strate this fact beyond all reason:, o
doubt. His presence now means v r
and only war, and a most barbarous
kind of war at that. He has changed
his policy of trying to reconcile the
Mexican people by mild mon uires,
and is showing his Austrian instincts
and habits by blood and cruelty. He
arrests the most respectable citizens,
simply because they are known to be
opposed to his remaining in the
country, hurries them off to dungeons,
or murders them on the spot! Out
upon tho usurper.-Louisville Journal.
A NOBLE OLD NEGRO.-A refreshing
instance of the gratitude of a negro
towards his former owner came under
our observation yesterday. An old
grey-headed veteran, of a ginger?
bread color, came into our counting
room, and oddressed himself to one
of the clerks, said he wished to sub?
scribe to the Times for his old mis?
tress. While the address was being
taken down, we ventured to inquire
in what capacity he was employed at
home, when the faithful old fellow
"Massa, I'se living on old missus'
lot. She is mity poor now, but used
to be 'fore de conflagration powerful
rich. For ten year old missus took
care of me, and now she's poor, I'm
gwine to take care of her. I knows
de proper way to act, if I am a nigger,
Such an instance of the fidelity of
an old negro who had once been a
slave afforded so striking a contrast
to the conduct of the majority of
worthless characters of that color
who, as soon as the evacuation, took
themselves off without even doing so
much as giving a day's notice to their
employers, that we think it worthy of
publication. -RicJtmond Timen.
