No oilier business being presented, tho Council
glory and power of Imperialism. And
further even than all this, perhaps, his
thoughts ran ; for would it not be something
to he proud of, if in a few years the rich an3
sunny land of the Mexican -should become a
colony of la belle France.
Though he has had three ycara in which
to attempt the achievement of these thiii'-,
he has not yet accomplished the least of
them. Mexico enjoys neither order nor
peace, though there have been as high as
forty thousand French soldiers in it'. Its
finances arc still in the mot hopeless con
dition, and have thrown into despair even
the accomplished 'financiers sent out from
Paris during the last bummer to put them in
order. Its mining interests are not.advanc
ing, and its yield of the precious metals bids
fair soon to be smaller than ever it was. Its
trade and commerce have not expanded, as
was anticipated. The United States laugh
at the Imperial "barrier," and the Imjerial
siciu nas cxmuucu its weaKness anu cov
ered itself with contempt. It is not to be
wondered at, therefore, that the French
people continue to be impatient about the
occupation of Mexico, and that thev are try
ing to furnish some pretext to the Emperor
lor wiinurawing ma troops.
It is conceived now that the United Slates
would not interfere in Mexico, adversely to
Imperialism, if once the French troops were
wnuurawn irom its eon that is only the
presence of a foreign army that is annoying
to the Americans that they would be wil
ling to let .Maximilian remain on his Im
perial throne, if able to do fo by his own
power, or by what Mexican help he may re
ceive and that thus all danger of compli
cations with this country, which could inure
neither to the proht nor glory of France,
would be avoided. There may really be
(omething in this. Wc are certainly" not
anxious to go to war on behalf of Juaraz. It
ccrtainiy is the presence in Mexico of for
eign mercenaries upholding alien interests
that ii the most annoying circumstance in
thc wliolo matter to the American people.
It is by no means impossible that if the
French troop3 were withdrawn this country
would cease to trouble itself about Maximil
ian, and would permit him to retain his
power, so far as it is concerned.
We should certainly like to sec the French
Emperor try this line of action. AVc should
like if he would permit Maximilian to set
tle his own fortunes., with the aid of the
Mexican people. We think the assurance
might he given on our behalf, that he would
no be interfered with by this country, for a
The French Emperor will have to adopt
some such eoun-e some time or other. lie
cannot retain an army of occupation in Mex
ico forever. lie can withdraw it at this time
witli lass loss to himself than he will be able
to do at any future time, and with equal
honor. He has done enough for Maximil
ian, and two much for Mexico. Let him
now follow the excellent advice civen him
by some of his own counecllors, and thus
get out ol an uncomlortablc position at once.

From the New York Times.
It appear from our French advices that
there is a strong prossuro in France upon the
Gowriime-it at this moment forthc withdraw
al of its troom in Mexico, and that it has got
to be generally underwood there that if the
troops be withdrawn, the United Stales
will in no way interfere with the experiment
of "eiviliiing" that country; but that H
long as the French flag remains in Mexico
so long wiH tho United States feel hotiIc to
France and'to the "civilizing" experiment,
" ThU," rite our Paris correspondent, " is
in diivcl contradiction to the idea which the
French Government and the partisans of the
Mask-nil expedition have always nrged;
that is to say, they have alwava put forward
the idea that long as the French Hag re
mained in Mexico, the Americans would be
afraid to interfere for fear of war with
France, and that if the ilag were removed,
Maximilian would 1? attacked at once. The
difference," ho continues, " is a not impor
tant one, and if it could be made to enter
into the plans of the American Government
to publicly announce their policv in this re
8pect,so that the French jieople could l0
sure of the fact, the pressure of public
opii.ion would i-oon bring aliout the evacua
tion of Mexico and the trial of the Kmpiro

It is unquestionably the fact thnt Louis

The English capitalists who recently made
an extended tour of observation in tins
country, with a view of acquainting them
selves with our resources preparatory to the
investment o: tneir capital in some ol our
public improvements, appear to have carried
home with them vcrv favorable impressions
of our people and institutions, ai well as of
our wonderful inherent strength, industrially
and commercially. Kefercnee has already
iccn made to the speech of Sir Morton Peto.
delivered at Uristol, England, immediately
upon his return, in which he spoke in the
warmest terms as to his reception here ; but
tho full text of his address: shows that he
was even more enthusiastic in his praise
than appeared from the first summary of
us remarks, in the course of his speech.
he said :
I went to America at an important and
interesting epoch of its history. I went
there at the close of the most tremendous
struggle known in modern times, and when
certain! v did expect to find the country
exhausted and society disorganized. I de
clare to you that I saw nothing in that por
tion oi mai great country tiirougti winch
we passed which could for a moment re
mind us that such a strucule had arisen
and I was still more astonished when I came
to learn the advance which had been made
in the Western States of America within
the last ten years.
"Whv, sir, within that period 2G.145.000ad
ditional acres have been brought into culti
vation : on the average 240,000,000 bushels
of wheat were grown, and the population of
tlioe extern "stales had advanced JAoO,-
000. It may be interesting to my Lord
Ducie, as an agriculturalist, to know that
more than .1,000,000 of the population m the
Western btatcs are employed m the cultiva
tion of hind ; but it may be equally inter
esting lor you 10 near mat iincago, which a
few years since was a mere village, a dot
upon the map, has now a population ex
ceeding a quarter ol a million, and public
buildings finer than anv that 1 know of in
any provincial city in this country ; while

its universities, its hospitals, aro all on a
most magnilicent scale.
Hut, to confine myself to the Western
Slates, I went to Boston ; and what did I
find there? I found that even since the
commencement of the war five million ster

surely that was no sign of exhaustion
Well, then we went to New York, and there
wc found one of the mot magnificent parks
in the world, the greater part of the works
connected with which hail been actually con
t ructcd during the war; and on referring
io statistics we lotinu mat tne interest on
the debt, and the whole of the municipal
taxes, only amounted to something like
three per cent, on the rental. I say fear
lessly that no young man who intends to
enter life as a man of business ought to con
sider his education complete without pay
ing a visit to America : and. without men
tioning names, I can assure you that one of
the largest merchants of my acquaintance
a man who does an immense business

No person who has the least information
on the subject can doubt the ability of the
Americans to pay their national debt, and
any one who exprescu a doubt of their
willingness to do so would be treated with
merited contempt. Then as to the army.
liicre was a wonderful thing in the absorp
tion of that army. The United States Army
was 1,200,000 strong, and General Grant told
him, at St. Louis, he had mustered out S7"i,
000 men up to that day. He stated that he
did not mean to have more than 50,000 men,
and if their friends of the South were sin
cere they would bring tha army down to
30,000. Cheers.! If those men could uo
and be absorbed in civil life, it mut show
that the country possessed resources such as
were never seen liefore, and which nations
in Europe would do well to imitate. Loud
Sir Morton went on to civc an instance of
how the soldiers were absorbed into civil
callings, and lie said that in Chicago he went
over a large printing cidablishmcnt belong
ing to a gentleman who was for some vcars n
Sccrctarv of the Embassy in Loudon. Talk
ing to him aliout the war, he said that forty-
seven of his compositors were all of them
soldiers. " That man," said he, pointing to
one, " was a major, that one a captain, that
a lieutenant, that a sergeant ; " ' but they arc
all at work as quietly as if they had never
left the compositor's "desk. He (Sir Slorton)
asked what he did when thev left him?
" Oho," he replied, " I gave them a written
understanding that their situations should be
open to them when t'.iey returned. ' I Applause.
