Siri Tour despatch of the 21st of September
,.to. oj uas coca reccivoa.
You have proceeded very properly In giving
to tsouai itccnucrg a copy oi my acspatcn to
Mr. Dayton of the Sd of March, 180 -J. This
Government desires to practice no concealment
In Its Intercourse with foreign States. During
the discussion concerning Mexico, and France,
and the United States, which has been colnir
on In Europe, I have refrained from Instruct
ing you to speaK ior tne united utates. lnls
reserve has been practiced because the ques
tions Immediately concern only tho three
States mentioned, and the personal relation to
them of tho Austrian Grand Duke Is an Inci
dent which could only bring tho Imperial royal
Government under any responsibility to the
United States when that Government should
attempt or propose to violate some actual po
litical right, or disregard some practical Inter
est which it would be the duty of the President
to maintain or assert. But In this course of
proceeding it has not been my Intention to deny
to you a full knowledge of the position of the
President In regard to the questions debated.
' France Is at war with Msxlco and at peaco
witu tuo uuuea otatos. ana a civil war ia
raging In the United States. I am to speak of
tne attituae oi cranco towards tue uniica
States In relation to this civil war, and also to
spoakof the attitude of France towards Mexico,
as It bears on the United States. For the take o t
persplcntty I keep the two topics distinctly
separate, ana i treat mo last one nrst.
we know, from many sources, aud even
from tho direct statement of the Emperor of
Franco, tn&i on mo Dreaning out or tuo insur
t garopeau statesmen mat ino euortaoi tms
Government to suppress It would bo unsuccess
ful. To this pre-judgment wo attribute bis
agreement with Great Britain to act In concert
with her upon International questions which
might arise out of the conflict, his practical
concession of a belligerent character to the In
turgentt, hit repeated suggestions ol accom
modations by this Government with the Insur
gents, and his conferences on the subject of a
recognition. These proceedings of the Empe
ror of France have been very injurious to the
United States, by encouraging and thus pro
longing the Insurrection. On the other hand,
no statesman of this country Is able to con
ceive of a reasonable motive on the part of
France or tbe emperor to ao or to wtsn injury
to the United States. Every statesman In the
United Stales cherlsbcs a lively interest in tne
welfare and greatness of France, and Is con
tent that she shall peacefully and In unbounded
nmaDflrltv enlovthe administration of the Em
peror sho has chosen. We havo not an aero of
territory nor a fort which we think Franco
could wisely covet, nor has she any possession
that we could accept If she would resign It Into
our bands. Nevertheless, when recurring to
what tho Emperor or franco nas already done,
we cannot, at any time, feel assured that,
under mistaken Impressions of our embarrass
ments In consequence of a lamentable, civil
war. he mav not go further lu the way of en
couragement to the Insurgents, whose Intriguos
In Paris we understand and do not underesti
mate. While tbe Emperor of France has he d
an unfavorable opinion of our national strength
and unity, we, on the contrary, have as con
untiv Indniired an entire confidence In both.
Not merely tho course of events but that of
time alSO, opposes too lusurrccuuu aim ro'
lnviirnratee tho national strength and power,
Under these convictions we avoid everything
calculated to Irritate Franco by wounding the
Just pride and proper sensibilities of that
spirited nation, and thus we hope to free our
claim to her Just forbearance In our present
political emergency from any tloud of passion
or prejudice. Pursuing this course, the Pros -dent
hopes that tbe pre-judgment of tho Em
peror against the stability of the Union may
give way to considerations which will modify
his course and bring him back to the tradi
tional friendship which ho found CI latin tr be
tween this country and bis own when, lu
obedience to utr voico, ne Bitumen ine namin
Iitratlon of her Government, Theso desires
and purposes of ours do not Imply either a
fear of Imperial hostility or any neglect of a
ftrudent posture of national self-reliance, and
n that posture we constantly aim to stand.
I speak next of the relation of France to
wards Mexico. Until 1600 our prestige was a
protection to her and to all tho other republi
can States on this continent. That prestige
has been temporarily broken up by domestic
faction and civil war. France has invaded
Mexico, and war exists between those two
countries. Tho Unltod States hold. In regard
to these two States and their conflict, the same
principle thst they hold In relation to alt other
nations and their mutual wars. They have
neither a right nor any disposition to Intervene
by force In the Internal affairs of Mexico,
whether to establish or to maintain a republi
can or even a domestic Government there, or
to overthrow an Imperial or a foreign one If
Mexico shall choose to establish or accept It.
The United States havo not a right nor a dis
position to Intervene by force on either sldo In
the lamentable war which Is going on between
France and Mexico. Oo the contrary, thev
practlco In regard to Mexico, In every phaso of
the war. the non-intervention which they re
quire all foreign Powers to observe In rcirard
to the United Statei. Bat, notwithstanding
inis self restraint, tint uovcrnment icnow mil
well that the Inherent normal opinion of Mex
ico favors a Government there republican In
form ana democratic in its orgamaition in
preference to any monarchical institutions to
be Imposed from abroad. This Government
knows alto that this normal opinion of the
people of Mexico resulted largely from tho In
fluence of popular opinion tn this country,
which constantly Invigorates It. Tbo President,
moreover, believes that this popular opinion ol
tho United States Is jnst In Itself and eminently
essential to tho progress of clvlllzstlon on
the American continent, which civilization
uo uciicvua inu iuii nut, u icn iruu irom
European resistance, work harmoniously to
gether with advancing refinement on the other
continents. This Government believes that all
foreign resistance to American civilization
and all attempts to control It must end will
rail beforo too ceaseless and ever increasing
activity of material, moral, and political forces
wnicn peculiarly Deiong to tue American con
tinent. Nor do the United States denv that In
their opinion their own safety and the cheer
ful destiny to which they aspire are Intimately
dependent on tho continuance of free republi
can institutions throughout America, nnd that
their policy will alwaya bo direct &d to that
ena. incy uavo iranitiy, ana on proper occa
slors. submitted thcto opinions to tho Em
peror of France, as worthy of his serious con
sideration, in determining now no would con
duct and closo what might prove a successful
war In Mexico. Nor do no practice reserve
upon tho point that If Franco should, upon duo
consideration, determine to adopt a policy In
Mexico aaverea to tne American opinion ana
would probably scatter seeds which would bo
fruitful or jealousies tnat migbt ultimately r pen
Into collisions between Franco and the United
States and other American Republics. An Il
lustration of this danger has occurred already.
Political rumor, which is always suspicious,
one day ascribes to Franco a purpose to sclzo
the Rio Grande and wrest Texas from tho
United Statos. Another day rumor advises us
to look carefully to oar safety on tbe Missis
sippi. Another day we are warned of coali
tions to be formed under French patronage
between the recency that haa boon recently set
up at too city oi Mexico una tne insurgent
cabel at Richmond. The President apprehends
none of these things, and docs not allow him
self to bo dltburbed by suspicions. But ho
knows also that such suspicions will be enter
tained more or lees cxtenshcly in this coun
try, and will bo magulfled In other countries,
and ho knows, alio, that it It out of such suspi
cions that tho fataeD of national animosity
Is most frcqueut!y-wtrTcnr T'beTresIdcnt,
upon the assurances which ho has rocelved
from the Emperor of France, expects that ho
will neither deprive tho people of Mexico of
their free choice of Uovcrnment nor seek to
maintain any permanent occupation or domin
ion the ro.
It Is truo that tho purposes or policy of tho
Emperor of Franco, In those respects, may
change villi changing circumstances. Al-
tnougo wo are coundlng, wo are not therefore
unobservant, and In no case are wo likely to
neglect such provision for our own safuv as
every people must alwajs be prepared to fall
oacicuponwuena nation wuuwnicu lacy nave

and treaty obligations.
In giving you this summary of our positions,
I bae simply drawn off from the records tho
Instructions undt which Mr. Davtou Is actinic
at Paris. I remain of the opinion that na
tional dignity is best tonscned by contlnlug
tho discussion of tbeso atlafrs to tho Cabinets
of tho United States, Franco and Mexico, and
that no public Interest it lobe advanced by
opening it at Vicuna, and, therefore, I do not
direct you to communicate tun ucspaicn to tue
Imperial Royal Court.
