SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF THE
LATE MEXICAN PRESIDENT.
AN EVENTFUL AND SUCCESSFUL
Tho t'ilcgraph brings us intelligence of
thu sudden duath, from apoplexy, oftho
cole bra ted Mexican General and ruler.
Benito J UAitEZ, ut thu City of Mexico, on
tho 18th inst., ut tho agu of seventy years.
The origin and history of this remarkable
man possess many points of interest und
exhibit a wonderful career. Ho was born
near tho village of ixtlan, near Oaxnca,
.Mexico, in thu year 1802, and was u de
scendant from thu ancient Indian rucu of
tho Tapatecos. Ho wus educated in thu
Collegu of Ouxucu, from which institution
no graduated in itSJU, at tho age oi twenty
eight. After havint! been elected a mem
ber of tho Institulu of Arts und Sciences
of Mexico, and having served us a member
of thu Legisluturo of tho State, ho turned
his attention to tho study of luw, in which
ho achieved great distinction, being elect
ed to tho Chair of Canonical Law in tho
Inslituto ot Ojxucu j hecretury of tho Su
premo Tribunal of Justice: Substitutu
Judgo of thu samo Tribunal ; Civil Judgo
of thu First Instance in thu City of Ouxu
cu; Fiscal Judge; u member of tho Stuto
i.egmaturo a second time, and Attornoy
Gunarul of the Supremo Tribunal of Jus
tice of that Department. For four yours,
from 1848 to lB5'', ho was Governor of his
native State, Ouxucu. On account of his
liberal views he was banished in 1853,
when Santa Anna was raised a Beeond
time to thu Dictatorship of Mexico. Ho
resided in Huvunu and Now Orleans for
two years, and thou joined thu insurrection
of Alvahee against Santa Anna, which
succeeded in, revolutionizing thu Govern
ment and thu establishment of u Republic.
Under Alvakez, Juauez became .Minister
of Justice; then Secretary of Statu arid
President oftho High Court of Justico un
der Como.vfokt, thu next President.
Upon thu overthrow of Comonvokt, Jua
uez was elected President of tho Republic.
An insurrection against thu Juaukz Gov
ernment was instituted by Miuamon, ana
Juaukz was forced to tuku rofugu from
Ills assailants at Vera Uruz, whuro ho con
tinued to uxurcisu his authority as Presi
dent over thu territory still under his rule,
and received mu recognition oi tnu united
Status. Hu defeated .Mikamon on thu 1 ltli
of August, 1B00, in a battle ut Silou, and
re-occupludtnu capital, whom no summon
ed u Congress, by which ho was again
electod l'residcul ot tnu itupubiic. un
thu 17th of June ho Issued a dcerco
suspending all puymi.nts to thu creditors
of tho Statu, including foreigners, for two
years, which caused thu French and J'.ng
lith Embassadors to suspend their func
tions. This meusuro luud to tho coalition
of Groat Britain, Francu and Spain, to en
force thu claims of their respective sub
jects, A negotiation was untorvd into ut
Bolcdud, atlur tnu uiuud troops hud landed
on .Mexican soil, which resulted in thu
withdruwul of tho hostile forces of tho
Spanish and English Governments, The
French troops, however, roinuined, by tho
order of tho Emporor Louts Napoleon,
for tho nurposo of carrying out tho ambi
tious schemes of that monarch of cstab'ish
ing the Archduke Fkkiunanu Maximi
lian upon a Mexican throno. Juaukz
resisted thu invaders with all thu power
hu could summon, ami dol'eated tho French
at Pueblu, On tho l'Jth of June, 18111,
Maximilian of Austria cnterod thu Mexi
can Capilul und u.cended tho throne,
which ho was destined to occupy but a
short while. After tho withdrawal of tho
French troops, Juaukz, by putting forth
extraordinary utl'orts, succeeded in defeat-
inc tho Imperial forces and obtaining pos
session ofthoporson Maximilian, through
tho porfldy of some of his followers. By
his orders tho unfortunato Archduko was
shot at Quorctnro on tho 10th of June,
1807, nothwithstandlng tho efforts of tho
Embassadors of forolgn powers to savo
his life. This act of cruelty, nnd tho sub
sequent slaughters which characterized
his administration of affaire, nllenulcd tho
sympathy oftho civilized world, which had
previously been bestowed upon him, and
dimmed tho brilliancy of his achievements.
Juauez established himself nl tha head of
tho Government, and maintained his posi
tion as Governor of that restless nnd revo
lutionary people until tho tlmo of his
death, though many efforts were mudo to
overthrow his power.

" While tbeso events wero passing, an
