THE UNITED STATES, FRANCE AND
MEXICO.-John Mitchel writes an?
other interesting letter to the New
York News, in which occurs the fol?
"The French Chamber is still dis?
cussing the clauses of their address
in response to the Emperor's speech.
The passage relating to Mexico is to
go undiscussed, at the request of the
Governmeut, because negotiations
are in progress, and inconsiderate ex?
pressions of opinion might produce
invitations and complications. The
avoidance of discussion, under the
circumstances, was wise; and if, at
your side of the Atlantic, there were
some power or influence that could
stop tlie braying in Congress of such
donkeys as 'Mr. Whaley, of West
Virginia,' it would be a point gained.
The French troops will assuredly soon
be withdrawn from Mexico, provided
there be no bullying on the part of
the United States-otherwise, not
soon, possibly not at all. 1 have
mentioned before in this correspon?
dence, and beg to repeat it again,
that if the Americans wish for a war
with France, they can have it."
The Paris correspondent of the
New York Tribune pretends to com?
municate a secret-"special to Gree?
"I am enabled to inform you of an
important fact not yet publicly known
in Paris. Mr. Seward's answer to
M. Drouyn de l'Huys' despatch of
January 9, has arrived. Although
the French Government has not yet
pronounced an official opinion upon
it, I have reason to know from ex?
pressions let drop by two or three
Ministers that the Cabinet of the
Tuilleries is very mueh pleased with
the contents. From what I can learn,
Mr. Seward has framed the delicate
despatch which he had to draw with
skill and address. While'reiterating
and re-enforcing all that the United
States Government has ever said
upon the Mexican question, he has
happily commanded language to de?
scribe the position from which Ame?
rica will not budge au inch iu terms
which France will probably make up
its mind to consider as not incompati?
ble with its own views. Mr. Seward's
latest communication relieves them
from a load of anxiety, and the rela?
tions of France and the United States
in regard to Mexico now stand upon
a very good footing."

THE RICE CROP.-We clip the fol?
lowing paragraph from the Marion
A gentleman, who has just arrived
from Georgetown, gives a more en
. couraging view of the prospect of a
crop of rice than had been generally
entertain?d. Thc freedmen, gene?
rally, in the early part of tho year,
showed great indisposition to engage
their services, being possessed of tho
idea that the lands would be given
them, and, in some localities, a very
hostile feeling was manifested to the
whites, rendering it very dangerous
for the planters to return to their
plantations; but the prevalence of the
small-pox amongst them, their very
general ignorance of the disease, aud
the neglect of timely precautions
having incurred its ravages to a fright?
ful extent-the mortality reaching to
sixty per diem-has disabused their
minds of all chimerical ideas and in?
duced them to contract pn reasonable
terms, though at so late a period that
the usual crop will not be planted.
Still a sufficient number of acres will
be cultivated to enable ns to look for?
ward to a considerable reduction in
the price of this very necessary grain.

paper, now weighs ibo pounds, is

The following amusing article is
from the Bichmond DispatcJi :
It is anticipated that when Mr.
Blaine's resolution, in the House of
Representatives, to brand all attempts
at guaranteeing Mexican or Fenian
bonds as unworthy the dignity of
Congress, comes up again in that
body, there will be a lively time.
There are said to be strong influences
at work in Washington on the Mexi?
can project. There ought to be
equally strong influences at work on
the Fenian project. The bonds of
the Irish republic present as good an
opportunity for a judicious invest?
ment as the bonds of the Mexican
republic. There can be no doubt
that one is as secure and reliable as
the other, and that if Congress guar?
antees both, it will afford intense sa?
tisfaction to a large and deserving
class of tho community.
The Mexican republic has a Pre?
sident, a Cabinet and Congress, all
the forms and every quality of an in?
dependent Government, except the
possession of the country, and the
power to enforce its decrees. It has
no army, but neither has Prussia; it
has no money, but what ?3 better, re?
lies on the affections of the people.
It travels from place to place, as
the exigences of the public service re?
quire, and in this way makes itself
acquainted with the wants, sentiments
and interests of every section. We
suppose there is scarcely a foot of
ground in the immense territory of
Mexico which Juarez has not visited,
in company with all the officers of
his Government, and exchanged
courtesies with the principle persons
of the locality. Marshal Bazaine, the
French general who courteously placed
a vessel at the disposal of Santa Anna,
and requested him to go to any part
of the Avorld, so that he did not return
to Mexico, has, with equal benignity,
facilitated the movements of President
Juarez through the extensive regions
of the republic, placing at his dis?
posal a motive power in the polished
bayonets of France which, energetic?
ally applied to his rear, has given au
irresis tilde impetus to his faculties of
locomotion. Where President Juarez
now is, in what sequestered valley or
mountain gorge the Mexicau x-epub
lic is now browzing the herbage, and
resting for a moment from its inces?
sant travels, we have no means of as?
certaining with precision. But it
would be a sublime ruoi-al spectacle
for the Congress of the United States,
with a heavy debt already upon the
nation, to show that this country does
not regard its own interests when the
weak and oppressed demand its as?
sistance. Even if the Mexican re?
public is a myth, even if Mexican re?
publics have been Mexican anarchies
or militaiy despotisms from the hour
of Mexican independence; even if
no sane man doubts that, were Maxi?
milian to leave the country to-mor
! row, Mexico would become a political
I and social chaos, let us, by all means,
guarantee the bonds of the Mexican
The Fenian republic has equal
claims upon our guaranteeing philan?
thropy. No one denies that the Irish
republic already exists in New York.
It has a President, a Senate and a
House of Representatives; a Secre
taiy of War, a Secretary of the Navy,
and other secretaries too numerous to
mention. It has an immense revenue,
having on this vital point an incom?
parable advantage of the Mexican
republic. It counts its income by
millions, and the fountain that sup?
plies the funds is never dry. The
heart of an Irishman communicates
directly with his pocket, and his heart
is as inflammable as gunpowder. His
sympathies are crystalized readily
into precious stones of immense
value. The cajmeious pockets of the
republic ar? always full. Whenever
the military chest needs replenishing,
an assemblage at Jones' Wood, and
an assurance that Ireland is in arms,
are more than sufficient to meet all
the wants of the occasion. In addi?
tion to the Fenians in the United
States, there is an army of 300,000
Irishmen in Ireland, which Captain
Cafferty declares is the best disci?
plined body of men the world ever
saw. If this startling proposition re
I quires any proof, we see it in the
I strong curb which keeps them quiet
' and forbearing, whilst the British
j Government is lording it with a high
j hand over the whole country, throw
I ing Fenians into jail by hundreds,
] sentencing others to transportation,
and garrisoning all the strong points
i of the island, lt must bc a high
[state of discipline, indeed, which
keeps an army of :.u0,000men patient
and unresisting under such intense
provocation. Let Congress make
haste, therefore, to guarantee the
bonds of the Irish republic, and the
British lion will tuck his tail between
Iiis legs and howl with anguish.
The country is waiting impatiently
for the guarantee of the Mexican and
Fenian bonds. There are no domes?
tic concerns of importance which re?
quire the attention of Congress, and
we are at full leisure, and entirely
competent, to risk the war with Eng?
land and France which this guaran?
teeing process would be certain to

An Original Letter from Gen. Wash?
In Pollard's "Southern History of
the First Year of the "War," an origi?
nal letter from Gen. Washington to
one of the immortal signers (and still
preserved in the family,) is for the
first time allowed to meet the public
eye. It was written from Washing?
ton's headquarters, near Boston, in
the midst of the struggle for Ameri?
can independence. The picture it
draws of the Massachusetts people is
strangely different from what they
have sought with such pertinacity to
impose on the public as a true repre?
sentation of their character. If
Washington was not mistaken in his
judgment of "these people," many
of them in 1775 were much the same
as the present generation showed
themselves in seeking to fill their
quota with negroes obtained from
distant States, and by seizing freshly
land emigrants and forcing them into
the army, and who now, under the
lead of their Sumners and Wilsons,
seem determined to keep up a war of
strife and bitterness, and to prevent
a reconstruction of the Union. The
letter to which we refer will doubtless
prove interesting to our readers, and
is given below as it is printed on
pages 341-2 of the volume referred
"CAMP AT CAMBRIDGE,
Aug. 29, 1775.
"DEAR SIR: * * * * As we
have now nearly completed our lines
of defence, we have nothing more, in
my opinion, to fear from the enemy,
provided we can keep our men to
their duty, and make them watchfid
and vigilant; but it is among the most
difficult tasks I ever undertook in my
life to induce these people to believe
that there is or can be danger till the
bayonet is pushed at their breasts;
not that it proceeds from any uncom?
mon prowess, but rather from an un
J accountable kind of stupidity in the
lower class of these people, which,
I believe me, prevails too generally
among the officers of the Massachu?
setts part of thc army, who are
nearly all of Jthe same kidney with the
privates, and adds not a little to my
difficulties, as there is no such thing
as getting officers of this stamp tc
exert themselves in carrying orders
iuto execution. To curry favor wit!
the men (by whom they were chosen,
and whose smiles possibly they maj
think they may again rely) seems tr
be one of the principal objects o:
their attention. I submit it, there
fore, to your consideration, whethei
there is, or is not, a propriety in tba
resolution of the Congress whicl
leaves the ultimate appointment o
all officers below the rank of Gene
ral to the Governments where th<
regiments originated, now the arrm
is become Continental? To me, i
appears improper in two points o
view. First, it is giving that powe
and weight to an individual Colony
which ought of right to belong to tb
whole. Then it damps the spirit am
ardor of volunteers from all but th
1 four New England Governments, a
none but their people have the leas
chance of getting iuto office. WouL
it not be better, therefore, to hav
the warants, which the Commander
in-Chief is authorized to give, pr,
tempore, approved, or disapproved b;
the Continental Congress, or a cona
mittee of their body, which I ghoul
suppose in any long recess mus
always sit? In this case every gentle
man will stand an equal chance o
being promoted, according to hi
merit; in tho other all offices will b
confined to the inhabitants of th
four New England Governments
which in my opinion is impolitic to
degree. I have made a pretty goo?
show among such kind of officer
as the Massachusetts Governmer
abounds in, since I came to this camj
having broken one Colonel and tw
Captains for cowardly behavior in th
action on Bunker's Hill; twoCaptair
for drawing more provisions and pa
than they had men in their company
and one for being absent from h:
post when the enemy appeared thei
and burnt the house just by it. B<
sides these, I have at this time on
Colonel, one Major, one Captain an
two subalterns under arrest for tria
j In short, I spare none, and yet I fe?
I it will not all do, as these people seei
j to be too inattentive to evcrythin
but their interest. * * * * *
There have been so many great ari
capital errors and abuses to rectify
so many examples to make, and s
little inclination in the officers <
inferior rank to contribute the
aid] to accomplish this work, that n
life has been nothing else (since
came here) but one continual rout
of vexation and fatigue. In shor
no pecuniary recompense could indu
me to undergo what I have, especial
as I expect, by showing so little cou

abuses as to render myself ve:

many who stand charged generally

told, the malfeasance extended, in
numerous instances, from the head
down to the meanest subordinate;
but so implicated was one with the
