of Siiirilunllsm The Opposition Scl
pneo Overcoming Error In Tlicolop-
Tlio Era of Iiiilivlilunl IJbery.
The following is the substanec of a dis
course delivered by A. J. Davis, the most
aoie lecturer ol the school ol spiritualists,
before the St. Louis Mercantile Library Hall,
as reported for the Democrat of that city
Mr. Davis la an exemplification of the adage
that " genius is closely allied to insanity."
It will be found highly readable :
Ladiis and Gentlemen : In response
lo your fraternal invitation, I am here to
deliver a course of lectures uiion questions
connected with mankind's most vital inter
ests, both temporal and eternal ; and. as the
first of these discourses, I have chosen a
theme winch may be entitled "Harmonial
Views of Things and Principles," or teach
ings of external and invisible realities from
a philosophical and spiritualistic standpoint.
And right here, on the threshold of our
freedom of thought and utterance, let us lilt
our hearts in gratitude to Heaven for the
manifold glorious privileges of the present
day and age. The supernal spirit of Liber-
iy, w hich is mo Rpirci oi uveri:isiing j.ruui,
is abroad in the land. The long, gloomy
night of enthralmcnt is melting away. The
sunbeams of a new epoch "rest, with a bright
and cheering radiance, on the hill topj of
the West." The bonds of sectarianism and
the accursed temples of superstitious ignor
ance arc crumbling into rums at the feet of
their illogical worshipers. From ocean to
ocean, and from pole to pole, the visible signs
of a higher humanity arc many and certain.
The mists of superstition arc rising from
"Tho valleys nnd the plain.
Ana a Hpint is awnliins thnt snail nover sleep
Let us gratefully acknowledge ourcloriotis
privileges of larger mental freedom the
rightof untrammeled expression everywhere,
on all important questions in church and in
State, and, above all, let us rejoice that the
last creat-conflict, world-heaving and heart
breaking though it was, has opened up a
brighter prospect for tho future of earth's
thousand millions. In the rapid transition
from tho old to the new, many lollies and
fanaticisms have come to the surface, and
many organized villainies and incorporated
evils have been probed and overthrown, and
many elegant hviKiorisies and respectable
customs have been put through the crucible
of Justice, and many innocent and noble na
tures have deeply sullercd in the wheels of
these revolution?, but all this is inseparable
from great transitions and grand agitation?,
which go down into the centers of social life
and individual Interests.
Old habits and old opinions arc alwavaun-
sctttlcd by great revolutions of thought.
Spiritualists were fully prepared for these
radical upheavals and .National changes.
Prophecy after prophecv, through thedilTer-cntly-gifted
media of the laud, years ago
announced, the nature, magnitude nnd results
of the mighty struggle through which the
American iieoplc have passed. So extrava
gant and seemingly so improbable were some
ol these prophecies purporting to emanate
from far-seeing statesmen long-since ascended
that even "full believers" in the doctrine
of Spiritualism laughed at and rejected them.
Hut the "lanatical ' visions ol the mediums
have been more than fulfilled. And we lift
up our hearts in gratitude fer tho higher
privileges and nobler destinies which the
painful trials of the past few years have se
cured to the onward inarching nations of the
ritlNCII'LES IN AND OUT OF MEN.
Man. harmonically viewed. Is tho reiiosi-
tory of the germs of all d'vine principles.
Every property of mattcrin the out-lying
universe, linds its respondent and counter
part in man. That which in matter is chem
ical affinitv and attracts, in the human spirit
is love and sympathy. The correspondence
is perfect. Tho world of mind is clothed
and harmoniously dressed with a world of
matter. Man's spirit is composed of nil
principles which, in their totality and infin-
lte.ortranization, is called uod. llus iden
tity of the essentials of man's inmost with
the principles of the infinite spirit is the
basis of his immortality, and the cause of
his tendency for endless progression.
The Greeks believed in the existence of a
Dscman fa cuardian intelligence) in the
heavens, which could speak to the " Reason"
in men. This is the "Logos" of which
something is divulged m the beginning of
John's Gospel. He affirms that this Da-man
was the .Losos " which was Ood : in other
ttSGsJi the Ecason of the Universe, are one
and the same. The life of the bpintual Uni
verse thc"Logos,"orGod became "Light"
in the spirits of men. Thus the cssenses of
infinite life flowed into infinite conscious
ness in the human organism, and thereby
became "the truo Light, which light Hh
every man that comcth into the world' Did
Plutarch learn this doctrine from the Christ
ians? Did Marcus Aurclius first read this
idea in John'i spiritualistic gospel! Nay;
from Intuition and Reason, and not from
written authorities, did the Grecian Spiritu
alists learn of the impersonal "Logos" resi
dent in the life of every man. John, in his
beautifully pure gospel, admitted the Har
monial Uiew of man, as did Jcsui and Plato
and Socrates, teaching that the " Logos"
i. c., the essentials of the life of the Universe,
God " was made flesh," or was clothed in
material organs and formi, "and dwelt" in
the visible realm " full of grace and truth."
Hut neither Plato nor John were fully up
to tho'viewwo take from tho Harmonial
stand point. Plato, while teaching that the
human soul is an emanation from the infinite
Divinity, and thus admitting the essential
affinity between man and God : yet, in his
logical reasoning, he was compollcd to run
the individual through various transmigra-
tional ordeals, and finally, when perfectly
pure, to annihilate him by a process of all
sorption. John, on the other hand, taught
the immortality of every man, but intro
duced a sectarian mystery, contrary to the
fixed principles of Nature, by teaching the
dogma that the "Logos" was manifested in
one individual. Nature brings to " light,"
by perpetually recurring mnnifeslations and
examples, the fact that the Divine life is in
carnated is made "flesh" and human
every time a child is born ! The harmonial
view of this subject is anti-Platonic in that
it makes the individual immortal, and is
anti-John in that it demonstrates the univer
sality of the "incarnation."
THE MAN OF SALVATION.
"Somcthintr in the human universe is
vitally out of order," is the conviction of
both heathen and christians ; and the qncs
tion arises on all sides, "What is it?" and
" How is it to be remedied T
The CTcatcst ante-Christian philosophers
substantially said : " We must strive to bring
the uod that is within us into harmony with
the God that is within tho Universe." This
was their effort. This God within was be
lieved to be estranged from the God without ;
and the conllict between mankind and the
Divinity (thev said) would continue till tho
God without Is found and inseparably allied
to the God within. The Christians, on the
other hand, said in substance : " The God of
the Universe is the same as the God in you,
but He is striving to bring you in harmony
with himself." The heathen, therefore, strive
as strangers to find God, and thus attain
"Jleavcnly rest;' the Christians b:Jio.a
God striving to attract man unto himself, to
crown him with " eternal life and peace."'
There is a vast gulf between these teach
ings and the harmonial view.
Finite Man. in the properties and posses
sions of his spirit, is a miniature of the In
finite. Growth, endless improvement,, pro
gress in all directions, throughout ever fast
ing ages, is the central law of his being.
The attributes of the human spirit are the
repository of the seed-grain of an eternal
development. He stands at the center of an
infinite radius, lie is made and endowed
by Father (God,) and by Mother (Nature,)
with immortal powers of individual growth,
lie is constructed on the infinite plan " in
its image and likeness" not in form, but in
the essential of his being. The law of Pro
gress regards and endows all men equally
and impartially. There is perfect harmony
between endowments and responsibilities.
Obligations arc commensurate with p,wcrs
possessed. All men arc born alike, not equal.
All men are equally dependent and inde
pendent ; but no two individuals arc on the
same plan of growth ,having exactly similar
wants and needs at the samo time; all go to
the Fountain to Us filled and inspired, bnt
cadi with his own measure, which holds
more, or les, or different, than that of every
DECEMBER 10, 1S65.
Other at the inexhaustible source.
In man's physical structure are found all
the primates of the globe ; or, rather, all the
proximatcs of metallic and non-metallic sub
stances; in man they come forth as the ulti
mate particles and refined principles of mat
ter. It cannot be true that all minerals arc
poisonous, because all minerals are found, in
their ultimate (first) state in the fluids and
solids of the human composition. Oxygens
is everywhere present in a man's body ; so
is phosphorus in his bones, blood and b'rain;
hydrogen is in all the fluids, and in some of
the solids: carbon is in all the secretions
and excretions ; iron is an essential of the
blood ; soda U in his muscles: silcx is found
,i. t.-: i " ... .
in iuu ii.ui iu.u nans , magnesia exists in
blood and brain ; lime is abundant in the
bones; albumen and fibrin; and sulphur,
and the several associate metals; also the
acids and alkalies acetic, uric, oxalic, ben
loic, potusium, &c, demonstrating, as per
fectly a3 iicience can establish any discovery
or proposition, that man's body is tho ulti
mate of all mineral, vegetable, and animal
properties and organizations of the globe.
Man, therefore, is the final, because he is
the highest physical organism possible. The
same rule applies to his mental structure and
inmost possessions. "Wo find him the final
finite embodiment of the infinite Love and
Wisdom. He is a child in this world. Wars,
cruelties, evils, injustices, sins, diseases, mis
eries these are the effects of undevejopment.
His salvation from Jlell-punlshment is pro
gression, growth, unfoldment. His growth
ii both automatic (unconscious,) and con
scious for volitional;) and thus each man is
incvitab'y and forevern parly to good or evil.
Man is a type of the infinito Universe. Bai
ley, the author of Festus, saw the initials of
this correspondence when he wrote
"Karth is tbo symbol of humanity,
Water the spirit, stars tho truths of heaven ;
All animnls are living hieroglyphs:
Tho barkinsr doi, the stcaltby-stcppiwr cat.
Hawk, bull all that exists mainumcthinti more
To the truo eye than tlicir shapes show."
Destitute of the essential principles of Jus
tice, Truth, Science, Philosophy, Love, Wis
dom! Why, if mankind wero "strangers"
to these principles they could not acquire
any permanent knowledge concerning them.
We affirm that every man's intuitions are
filled with tho seed-grain of all principles.
Agriculturists never attempt to raise harvests
on soijs destitute of the essential properties
of which their grain is constituted. Man's
mind takes to music, to mathematics, to
science, to philosophy, to poetry, to spiritu
ality, and to the realities of eternal life, be
cause his mind is the repository of all prin
ciples, in a germinal state, of which all truth
Father Sniarius, in the Catholic Church
of St. Francis Aavier, in this citv, delivered
a course of lectures (1800) on u Faith." :
against the Prote-iant claim of the " right
of private judgment," advocating the ab
solute necessity of n "deciding power," in
matters of revelation, oulmlc of the individ
ual. Ho was opposed and answered, in
part, by the Rev. Mr. Marvin, in the Cen
tenary Church, in this city, who did, doubt-les.-,
as well as could any other minister in
his mental entanglement on the question of
an infallible revelation in manuscript, or in
the form of a book.
Like a philosopher, Dr. Smarius said that
"the scriptures do not contain the whole
doctrine of revelation." (See Republican,
Feb. 1 SCO, Lec. 4.) He found the church
existing far behind the present compilation
of conflicting books called " the Holy Bi
ble." The authority on which he rests his
"faith" in the inspiration of that bddy of
Prelates, Bishops and Priests, who in' the
fifth century, in solemn convention, decided
what books should be rciectcd and which
should be accepted. He savs the Bible it
self does not tell what books aro genuine.
hat biblical authority is there," he asks,
"for rejecting tho hoqk of tho Wars of the
Lord, (Numbers xxvi: v. 14;) the book of
Judges, (Jos. x: v. 29:) the book of .Na
than, the (1 Chron. chap, ix: v. 29:) the
Shcnicmiah, the prophet; the gospel of
Thaddcus; of Matthias; of Peter, tho Apos
tle; of James; of Barnabus; of St, Thoin
ai; of St. Bartholemcw; acts of St. Peter;
of the liook of the Nativity of our Lord; of
the m.ancy ol ourfeavior; ""d the hook
called the 'Shepherd' which Origin quotes
as divinely inspired, which Riifflnus ealls a
book of the New Testament?"
Father Smarms may well ask "what au
thority is there for rejecting" these books as
uncanonical ? He answers his own question
like one who has "learned his lesson" by
page and by book, but not like a philoso
pher. The Rev. Mr. Marvin could not an
swer without affirming tho supreme authority
o. intuition and roacon. Dr. famarins finds
the deciding power in tho Roman Catholic
Church, which was before the Bible anil by
which the Bible teas made.
The harmonial view is apparent. Men ex
isted before churches. Prelates, bishops,
priests and preachers arc onlv men, They
may be wise or otherwise; they may bo
honest or impostors; they may draw intelli
gence from heaven or from their own selfish
ness and ambition. The bishops who "re
jected" the foregoing books, and who adopted
as inspired, tho booKs now called holy,"
were no moro qualified as authority than
would bo tiie same number of merchants,
mechanics, or lecturers on spiritualism. Au
thority is invested in thcprimal principles of the
individual spirit. "The internal witness" is
final ; "the still small voice' is absolute ; the
lammatrc of intuition is bevond the mistakes
of wordy translators ; the verdict of reason
13 the voice ot uod in the garden."
In the Harmonial Age there can be no
constitutional authority on religious ques
tions. Neither can infallibility of teaching
be expected from any individual; because
man is a progressive being, increasingly toil
ing between tho worn lot 'Ideas ' wulnn and
the outlying universe of "Things ;" and as
no one mind can, according to olir principles;
icrceivc and comprehend all truth, oven ill
one line of his ljoundlcss realm, so no one
person can, wito any justice or reason, ever
assume to bo authority" above his lellows
in spirituality and divine principles; al
though it is true now, and it will everlast
ingly continue to be true, that some minds,
by largeness of capacity and corrosiwmding
industry, may possess more Knowleugo ot
and be higher developed in science, philoso
phy and spiritual principles, than others who
give thene subjects little or no attention.
And thus we have among us at all times
"teachers." "writers," "mediums," and
" orators qualified to address mankind, and
to reveal in clear light the pleasant and
peaceful paths of wisdom.
THE VALUE OF SriniTUALISJt.
The fanaticisms and follies of manj in the
ranks of Spiritualism first attract attention.
Superficial minds couple the " extremes " of
fanatics with what they have heard ot
the manifestations called spiritual. A to
tally false "opinion" is thus set up in so
ciety. Tlio real genius of Spirdualism,
meanwhile, is becoming more and more ap
parent to unprejudiceu investigators. It is
the hrst religion that takes "lacts" lor its
foundation ; the first religion that rears its
temples of thought on the immutable prin
ciples of philosophy ; the first religion that
sees a mother as well as a father in God ;
the first religion that has demonstrably
"brought life and immortality to light r"'
the first religion that has overcome death
and the horrora of the grave; the first re
ligion that has sounded the gospel of Free
dom equally to woman and man, to young
and olu, to lord and serf, it is the first reli
gion that has satisfactorily explained the
pnenometia oi mauer ana mmu, in nnu out
of man; it is the first religion that is "to
the manor born," and congenial to the true
children of Nature; and it is the first reli
gion to form mankind from slavery to creeds
and dogmatisms, and to give the individual
ttholly to himself !
Spiritualism is the enemy of conformity.
It teaches that it is better for a man to think
for himself, even if he think wrongly, than
to conform to the tyranny of Focial hypocra
cies nnd to the dictum of ecclesiastical
shams. The ape epoch among men is pass
ing away. " W here th c spirit of tho Lord
is ihere. is liberty " to the individual. It is
probable , that "individualism" may also
have its follies and fanaticisms. It may lead
to isolation in some persons ; in otlier; to sel
fish acts of pride and tyranny; and it may,
for a period, set up a barrier to associative
cfibrts, for tho progress of thcmnltitude; but
these errors will correct themselves, while
theposiiite beivjits of indivk'nV.Lun will come
out dearer and clearer, like the golden sun
from behind the clouds.
orrosmoN to eefohxeks.
Opposition to evcrv new phase in reli
gious development is natural. Socrates
taught the Athenians (who believed in
polytheism) the implo "idea" of a Su
preme Being; they put"himto death. Je
sus tanghrthe Jews (great believers in Mo
ses and the Prophets) .the "idea" of higher
revelations from (too; tliwput. turn, to
death. The ik-ooIM EtiiefiA cut u
Matthew into pieces with a sword, because
he advocated the doctrines of the Nazarenc.
Mark, the next named in the Testament,
was dragged through the streets of Alexan
dria, in Fgypt, and subsequently died in
great agony. Luke, because he vould teach
the "blasphemies" of Jesus, was hung on
an olive tree inJGrcece. The beloved John,
for his religious heresy, died at Ephesus only
after he had escaped from a cauldron of
boiling oil. J amcs. the great was beheaded
at Jernsalem, while the lesser James was
thrown headlong from a pinnacle of the tem
ple. Philip was hanged by the neck
m the streetsof Hierpolis. Bartholomew
was flayed alive; Antriw was hound to a
cross for his heresy, and thus addressed his
persecutors till he expired. A sharp spear
was run tnrougu the body ot Thomas; ai
mon was crucified, as was the Nazarenc be
fore him ; and Matthias was first stoned and
then beheaded. Galileo, a disciple of Co
pernicus, came near losing his lite for" teach
ing the revolution of the planets, Descartes
tanght tho philosophy of "innate ideas."
For this tho University of Paris de
nounced him as an atheist, and ordered that
all his books should be burned 1 Dr. Har
vey was treated with scorn, deprived of his
practice, and driven into exile, because he
discovered and taught the circulation of the
mood I JJr. J enner was violently denounced
and threatened with diserace. because ho
advocated vaccination for small-pox 1 Co
lumbia, b ulton, bitch, all sullered by the
opposition to their several discoveries and
reforms. Fulton was laughed at and neg
lected by the "respectable" and "intelli
gent" of his day, and they let him die in
extreme indigence. Examples of folly,
prejudice, hatred., condemnation and cruci
fixion of pioneers in anything absolutely
new need not be multiplied. From an
outward stand-point this opposition seems
" a cross too heavy to bo borne "
"But truth nhnll conmtrr at tho last.
For round nnd round wo run.
And ever tho richt comes uppermost.
And ever injustice done."
Spiritualism, viewed from the Harmonial
standpoint, is the last, and therefore the best,
development of the sublime relations be
tween mankind and tho next higher sphere
bf existence. To the opponent its outward
manifestations are only incomprehensible;
rappings on a piece of furniture, signifying
nothing to ns, those sounds are the musical
beatings of the tides of an infinite sea against
the forms that cover the shores of a material
world. The social and familiar tokens and
signs of mediums, when they write, or per
sonate, or heal the sick, or speak the words
of friendship, are "trivial" or "satanic" lo
the orthedox skeptic; tons, they arc freight
ed with tho mystic loveliness of deathless
guardians who inhabit the firniamental
spheres; and with uplifted hearts we hail
the voices of our loved "departed," whom
the ignorant mourn as " doad," for we be
hold in them the absolute certainty that what
ever is human is immortal.
In conclusion, ladies and gentlemen, let
me say to each and all, that to be a Spiritu
alist is to lie a friend of the grandest religion
ever liestowed upon mankind. To be a har
monial philosopher is to be intelligent, con
scious, self-poised, well-balanced, intuitive,
independent, reasonable, charitable, just, no
ble and progressive in nil high directions.
Groicth, mtowTir, GROWTH. This is the
eternal law of our being and the object of all
exertion, as it will be the result of all expe
rieneo. You will, therefore, be the firmest
supporters of education. You will develop
children into men, and men into angels.
You will, through growth, "overcome evil
with good" and straighten the crooked ways
of error and injustice. In all these labors
and efforts you will receive the aid of angel
intclligencics, and will attract the admiration
and co-operation of the generous, intelligent
and noble of every age and country.
Till! WASH IXCSTOX XATIOXAI. MO-
From a lengthy article in the National
Intelligencer, relating the history and present
condition of this work, we extract the fol
lowing: The monument grounds have been used
during the war for yarding Government cat
tle, and several largo buildings for hay,
grain, stabling, and quarters for Government
officers' and workmen, havo liecn erected on
the premise. Tho house protecting the en
gine used for hoisting the building material,
the watchman's house, and the shelter con
taining the memorial blocks arc the only
buildings belonging to the society. The latter-named
building is a place of great inter
est. It is some one hundred and fifty feet
long, and perhaps twenty feet wide. Along
its sides and through the centre arc ranged
the blocks of marble, granite, Ac., eighty, in
number,' of which we nave just spoken.
It is well known that each State, while the
work was in progress, contributed a memo
rial block, with the State coat-of-arms and
appropriate sentiments inscribed. The blocks
were all, except five, inserted in the inner
surface of tho wall, aloft, in their designated
places; tho lowest of them lieing a hundred
feet from the base, where, if the structure U
carried as it will surely-ic to completion,
these emblems will be seen and studied by
hundreds of generations, aa the visitors wind
up and down the stupendous staircase or ride
upon the car, as the case mar be with the
mode of ascent and descent. Fivo of thesa
State contributions had not been inserted
when the work ceased, and are to be seen in
the dejiository. Michigan presents a massive
block of pure native copper, weighing 2,100
pounds, some 2 by 2 feet on the face, ljcau
tifully sculptured, and inscribed, ' Michi
gan" above, and "An emblem of her trust
in the Union," under the escutcheon. Ver
mont sends a massive and splendid block of
marble, finely sculptured, with "Freedom and
Union" as "the motto. New York con
tributes a superb block of dark stone, grand
ly sculptured, and inscribed simply "Excel
sior" on the massive shield, which stands in
relief. Louisiana sends a block of mouse
colored marble, inscribed, "Tjik Stathof
Louisiana, evek faithful to the Con
stitution and Tim Union." Tennessee
contributes a fine block of her native beauti
ful variegated marble, exquisitely finished,
and inscribed in heavy nnd elegantly cut
letters, "Tkxxkssek : The Union It
Must be PitFSEnvED."
There aro seventy-five blocks from miscel
laneous sources. Cities, town, fire com
panies, Masons, Odd Fellows, Sons of Tem
perance, military organizations, public
schools, Sabbath schools, literary and scien
tific association. are all represented in these
rows of memorials from every section of the
country; and there arc contributions from
Europe, Asia and Africa.
It is refreshing to explore and study these
memorials. It transjiorts yon to screncr and
lietter days, and beforo this tide of fraternal
strife had desolated tho land and left its
madness in the heart. The first that meets
your eye at the entrance is a magnificent
granite block inscribed, "First Regiment
of Light Infantrr Massachusetts Militia,
Boston, 185.1," and next to this is the splen
did marble block, superbly sculptured in
bold relief, nnd inscrilicd, "Fire Department
of the City of New York, incorjiorated 20th
March, 1793," and then there i the block of
bluish stone, in'tcribod, " I. O. O. P., Grand
Lodge of Mississippi," and by its side the
massive block of white marble, elegantly
dccoraU'd, from the Sons of Temperance of
Pennsylvania. Turkey contributes an elab
orately formed and sculptured marble me
morial, the Tnrkish inscription upon which
is translated as follows: " So as to strcngthsn
tho friendship existing between the two
countries, Abdul Majid Kahn has had his
name also written on the monument of Wash
ington." These words form a chronogram,
1269-1779 of the Ilegira. Above this in
scription is a monogram signifying, "Abdul
Mejid, son of Mahomet Kfchn p and npon
a corner are the words, "Written by the
Court Poet Mnst-jhi Izyt." The United
States Grand Lodge I. O. O. F. furnishes a
fine block of white marble, elegantly adorned
with emblems in relief, and the " 35 public
schools of Baltimore, 7,600 pupils, A. D.

sculptured in the most superb manner, and
bearing as a sentiment, " ldmam tjki

Gekeiiai,: I forward vou inclosed copy
of a communication, dated yesterday, sent
to mcbyM.de la Kcdolliero, lieutenant in
the French marines and acting commander
of tho armed gunboat Antonio. You can,
by said communication, ollici.illy tako cog
nizance of tho following occurrences, which
include so many flagrant violations of the
neutrality which the United States have ob
ligated themselves to kccx in Mexican af
First That the Mexican stcamlioat An
tonio, coming up the river with French
troops on board, was attacked from tho Texas
shore without anv provocation whatever.
Nor was this insult to the Fronch and Mex
ican flags, which were both floating on the
boat, in any punished.
Second That the liesicgcrs of Matamoras,
detached from their lines to attack, from
Mexico, the said stcamlioat, crossed the ltio
Grande underarms, without any optHnition
being made by tho American authoritios,
officers or soldiers from whom, on Iho con
trary, they received ahearty welcome.
Third That the same bandits were in di
rect communication with tho American
steamboat Tampico during the action. Tho
relation of M. do la Bcdolliero is confirmed
by the unequivocal marks left on tho Anto
nio by tne projectile sent from the Texxs
Besides this, occurrences of the same char
acter have taken place in the neighborhood
of Matamoras during the stay of the enemy.
According to the daily reiiorts of the steam
ers Paisano and Eugenia, a great numlicr of
persons, amongwhom could be distinguished
the uniform of the United States anil that
peculiar to Cortinas robbers, occupy them
selves in insulting and even throwing stones
from tho city of Brownsville at the trooj
which man said fmtx, and this in the pres
ence of tho American officers and guards
station"! on the bank of tho river.
Such outrages, which cannot naturally Iks
explained have been ncted, nnd relation of
them will bo transmitted to the .Mexican
Government, and his Excellency, Marshal
Bazaine, in order that they may decide upon
the real character of such actions.
Accept, General, the awurancoof my con
sideration, TlIO?. Mejia,
Commanding Line of tho Bio Grande.
We omit Bedolliero's complaint in full,
as the points of it are embodied in tho above
communication from his superior officer.

Kio Ij ramie:
GENEKAtr I have the honor to acknow
ledge the receipt of your communication of
tho 9th inst., and to say in reply that you,
as a soldier, must certainly Iks aware that it
would require all the cavalry of Europe and
America combined so to picket thij river as
to prevent single individuals from commit
ting such outrage as Lieutenant do la Bc
dolliero complains of, and that it would not
bejustinyou to hold me or my Govern
ment responsible for acta of such individu
als. All that I can do i to try my utmost
to arrest the guilty parties, and disjos of
them according to instructions ; and this I
commenced to do before I received your
letter, and as soon as I heard of tho occur
rence. The soldiers on tho Tampico wcro sick
anddisabled men who were mustered out,
and were on their war to their homes.
What crime there could have Iieen in com
municating with the Liberals I cannot po
sibly understand. These sick and diablcd
soldiers hail no ammunition, and they cer
tainly could givo them Tcry littlo infor
mation. The fact that there were bullet-mark on
the t larboard side of tho Antonio docs not
prove at all that the shots rere fired from
the American side, becaase, aa you must
