Letter from John Mitchell.
. PARIS, December 22, 1865.
No subject is discussed here with
such vivacity as President Johnson's
message; and especially, of course,
that part of it which expresses his
views and policy in the matter of Re?
publican institutions in America, and
European intervention upon that con?
tinent. Does that, or does it not,
refer to Mexico, and Maximilian's
empire ? Does it indicate, or does
it not, an intention at some futuro
time to treat the new empire as such
an intervention by an European power
-establishing a monarchy on the
ruins of a republic-as will call upon
the United States to put an end to it
in the interest of Republicanism ?
Most French people accept the docu?
ment as a proclamation, not only of
peaceable intentions, but of absolute
indifference to the future of Mexico.
They take Mr. Johnson's declaration
as a simple statement that the Go?
vernment of the United States will
always defend its own form of govern?
ment, within its own borders, against
any attack upon it by European
powers ; wbich, they say, is perfectly
fair, though rather needless, to an?
nounce, inasmuch as no European
power, that they know of, meditates
any assault upon Republicanism in
the United States.
Others, however, supposing, not
unnaturally, that the President would
scarcely give himself the trouble to
declare so solemnly that the United
States is prepared to defend itself
fvQin aggression (a thing which is a
matter of course), violently suspect
that he means, in an equivocal sort of
way, to claim a protectorate over all
American republics, and to intimate,
though not directly nor very clearly,
that the Austro-French establishment
in Mexico must some day be taken up
by the roots.
Others still have a third theory on
the subject. It is this : That 'Mr.
Johnson has expressed himself in that
somewhat enigmatical manner chiefly
to satisfy public opinion in his own
country, in order, on the one hand,
to please the party which desiros
?teaco and rest and material recupera
ion after the war, and, on the other,
to keep hold of the Monroe doctrine
by dubious expressions which may
hereafter bc interpreted as the inte?
rests nf the country and party exi?
gencies rnay require. This view of
the ouse implies that the President,
.feeling himself obliged to have cer?
tain paragraphs in his message touch?
ing upon the knotty question, has
successfully practiced the art of utter?
ing a good many words, and putting
them grammatically into sentences,
and saying nothing.
The last of the three interpreta?
tions may turn out to be not quite
ffestituto of foundation. There is,
iioweyer, most unquestionably, some
uneasiness among the official people
here; the "Liberals" or Republicans
of this country openly declare their
wish that Mexico and Maximilian
were left to themselves, and the
French forces withdrawn; in which
case the empire would not stand a
month. But then these Republicans
Ijave the habit of attacking every?
thing the Government does, and of
wishing for the things most opposite
to thatwhich the Government wishes.
Probably the Government of the em?
pire will soon resolve upon taking one
of twoecyirses in the matter of Mexico;
tho one to withdraw all French sol?
diers and Maximilian with them-the
otb>si<|"*fcreinforce the army in Mexico
ind prepare to muke good
re against all opposition. If
lout of this afluir, it will not
td to Mexieo.
There has been some little dis- j
turbance among thefstudents of Paris,
on account of thc academical authori?
ties having deprived seven young men
of their right to take degrees. These
youngsters had attended some sort of
a "Convention" at Liege, in Belgium,
and had poured forth some blarney
about the black flag and the red flag,
and their determination to live no
longer as slaves, etc. Tho rigmarole
was printed in Belgian newspapers,
and having attracted some attention,
the University authorities felt eailed
upon to notice it by expulsion from
the classes. Commotion, of course,
in the Latin quarters. One of the
Faculty, a Professor Tardieu, had re?
fused to concur in the severe measure.
Thousands of students sign an address
to M. Tardieu, felicitating him on his
noble stand. Some newspapers pub?
lish this address; they receive a first
warning (avertissement) on the spot.
Several lecture-rooms arc the scene of
disturbance-not rioting, but only
loud and excited outcries mid inter?
pellations ; whereupon the police
march iuto said lecture-rooms, clear
them out instantly and shut the door.
So are matters going on in tho Lutin
quarter at this moment. Posts of po?
lice are doubled, there is active sur?
veillance over the student world, and
indignant youths have to talk over
their red flag in private apartments.
No serious trouble is expected to arise
out of this. Such things often occur, j
There is, however, a powerful and,
I think, a growing Republican party
in this countiy, although thc Empe?
ror is rising in pemnal popularity.
Every circumstance that takes place
is sure to be laid hold of to make a
sort of party demonstration. For
example: Alexander Bixio died the
other day; he was an old Republican;
he was wounded in Paris in 184S; he
was much connected with the anti
Papal party in Italy, and was fami?
liarly known to leading literary peo?
ple in this country. Further: M.
Bixio was ii steady atheist, and he
and his friends made his death-bed
sc?ne a species of anti-religious mani?
festo. He died without a priest, with?
out prayer or unction, and neither he
nor anv of his enlightened friends
around ais bed made theslightest allu?
sion to religion or a future life. This
was considered capital, especially as
the Liberal newspapers paraded that
scene in its minutes" letails. Here
was thc death of a virtuous man and
true philosopher! Here was a So?
cratic death-bed-(a mistake, this last
allusion, for Socrates sacrificed a cock
to Esculapius)-and, as for the great
merit of dying without religious con?
solation, the Liberals forget to advert
to the fact that dogs die so. How?
ever, a great funeral for poor M.
Bixio was determined on; it was to
be regarded, in some sort, as a parade
of the Republicans; it was to mean
Italian unity, and no Pope, and a
protest generally against the Empe?
ror's policy, if not against the Empe?
ror's existence. Of course, the Em?
peror's amiable cousin, Prince Napo?
leon, would not fail to attend; in fact,
he made a long journey to Paris, and
it was announced that he had followed
the body of M. Bixio from the house
the whole way to the cemetery on
foot. N"t that ho loved M. Bixio
more, but that ho loved his courin
less; and, if the thing was to spite
the Emperor a little, he was very
certain to stand bareheaded in a damp
cemetery as long as required for the
Americans, I think, find it hard to
understand tho intense interest ex?
cited in Europe by tho death of King
Leopold, of Belgium. It is because
Leopold was the most successful
practitioner of the trade of King in
modern times. Beginning with a
small capital pi high Germ?n blood,
ho has allied himself as son-in-law
and father-in-law with all the greatest
royal houses ; has been a King him?
self for five and thirty years, amass?
ing a vast fortune ali the while, and
has now died a millionaire. That
family seems to have a wonderful
aptitude for tho royal business. How
exemplary a King was Leopold !
How illustrious a Prince consort was
Albert ! Leopold always professed
himself a perfect Belgian, and as to
Prince Albert, was he not the model
of an Englishman ? A Coburg is
always ready to reign anywhere-if
the situation be eligible ; has no
objection to town or country, and is
willing to make himself generally
nseful. Greece, now, is too small a
concern, is too far away irotr> Paris
and London, and does not afford the
best chances of first-rate royal mar?
riages. Leopold, therefore, had to
decline io reign over Greece ; but
when Belgium offered, he thought it
might suit. J. M.
