Sail Antonio, July 27. A gentleman
who returned from Monterey, Mexico,
this morning, reports the feeling over
the outrage recently perpetrated tt on
Acting American Consul Slimy, to be
verv cxeitiiiL' on nil s.Mi.. 'ni.n n.
luiprc-slon ihul the attack on Mr.
ailaw was made for the purpose of ob
taining certain papers relative" to the
reeunt mobbing of (ho Mexican Na
tional ltathvuy conductor at Busta
mente, which papers indicated what
tho United States pioptwod to do
about the matter, bus been strength
ened by more recent developments.
Mr. Shaw is a I'leabyterlnn minister
who has resided In Montorey about a
year, and was only acting consul dur
ng the consul's abeenoe in New Or
leans', whither he had gono on olllcial
bustlies. Tlio assault on Mr. Shaw
was inado by tlio lowest class of Mcxi-
eiuis, uiiii 11, is inougui tney were em
ployed by others wIumo object was to
obtain possession of certain documents.
Tho Mexican olilclals are anxious to
know what course our government in
tends to pursue in the inaltor. Mr.
Shaw has again appeared on the
streets. A full account of tho outrage
hay been made out and transmitted to
Washington. There are no ftolings of
regret expressed in Mexico, but among
the opponents of Governor Diaz theio
la evident pleasure that an American
consul was attacked In )iis olllce,
beaten nearly to death and robbed.
The press Is silent on the attack, but
outspoken against Governor J)ia., call
ing him the Grand Mogul, the Ameri
can candidate, and the Judas Iscariot
who la leagued with Americans to be
tray his country. Never was opposition
more decided against any prospective
presidential candidate in Mexico, for
w ith the election of Diaz they prophecy
tho downfall of the Mexican lepubllc
and the end of the mother chinch of
their country. These are the strong
points not only with the general com
munity but with the more respectable
classes, and thu greatest concern Is en
tertained by Americans and other for
eign residents not only for tho safety
of their lives, but the defense of their
country's rights. One of tho that
moves in a revolution would
be tho destruction of tho prop
erty of foreigners, and tho
anti-American and anti-Diaz party is
sufficiently powerful to accomplish
this on short notice. There is no de
nying the fact that ah"airs in our sister
republic are now in a very dangerous
condition as relates to tho American
interest. Americans in thi'i city think
tho time has certainly come when
their government should take a stand
against Mexican outrage, and protect
its citizens and tho honor of the ootin-
