By the clipper ship Hive Jirlit, which arrived

j!in Franci-co dales to Lecetiiber '24, have Loeii re
ceive.!. The American r.ews r-osves ecus! Jtrable iLtcrest.
The .Mexic'tu Luipire scheme is evidently aj proch
iug a cri.-id. The coniinueJ sending t f troops from
Frir.oc t MexiC'j is the werst feature of the Lews,
as this is evidently done in defiance of the American
Government, and will have the eifect of exasperating
Congress tu t ke tueasuie to stop it, even at the
risk of war with France. If France wishes war with
the United St ite.--, she cm very easily bring it
nrounJ. The f..llowin telegrams from Washington
are suggestive :
A correspondent states that over two thousand
French triors had arrived at Vera Cruz within a
month, and that over three thousand were on the
way tu Mexico. The French ouicers at Vera Cruz
were employing their leisure time iu expressing very
Contemptuous opinions of the United fctates.
There is no ( 1'icial information fiom the French
Government that the Fmperor intends to withdraw
the French troops from Mexico.
The following late telegrams indicate the growing
importance of the Mexicm questiou :
Washington, lice. '2 The President has nomi
nated Hon. Lewis I. Campbell as Minister to Mex
ico, in place of Gen. I.oan, who declined
There is reason to believe that several Mexican
privateers will shortly sail from ports in the Atlantic
or Pacific to prey on French commerce.
A letter from the Fmperor Nupo!eoti is said to
have been received at the State Deputtmnt, request
ing the recognition of Maximilian's "Government in
Mexico, to which the Secretary of State has replied,
firmly declining to accede to the request, and giving
the leasoiis why it is anticipated that the Mexican
question, so far as this cuuntry is Concerned, will
soon come to a head.
The Fkkncii Mimsti-.k. The I lv rail's Washing
ton special dispatch says: It is rumored that the
French Minister, now in New Yoik, is much dis
pleased with the Congressional action en the Mexi
can question, and has deciJed not to return to Wash
ington unless some explanation be given him.
Fkaxck axi Mtxicu. The Cow merciiil's Wash
ingtnu dispatch says the departure from Kurnpe on
WediiesiByot the Chief Secretary of the French
Legation, connected with the recent developments oti
the Mexican question, the temper of Congress and
the growing popular sympathy with the Liberal
cause iu Mexico, with the appointment of General
Logan, have led to correspondence between Count
Moii'holon and the State Department, which has re
sulted in his sending a message to Ihe French Etu
peror for definite inti uctions. It is said the with
drawal of the French Legation from Wa-hiugton will
take place in case of a formal appointment of a
United States Minister to the Mexican Republic.
Chicago, Pec -0. A resolution passed the Senate
on Monday, the 18:1), calling upon the President for
information in regard to steps taken at any time by
the so-called Mexican Empire, or any European
Power, to obtain from our Government recognition
of the Government of Maximilian ; also for any cor
respondence that Las taken place in the premises.
The Question of the Day. The' question now is,
are we going to have a war with France ? One
thing is certain : French reign in Mexico looks a
little dubious for a continuance. They arc having
lively times on the Ilio Grande, and there is a pro
miscuous shooting going on across the river, which
is likely to make work for Mr. Seward. Between
our claims on England for rebel depredations on the
seas, the Fenian excitement, and last, not least, the
French question, the honorable Secretary has his
b uids full, ami diplomatic notes arc multiplying.
The feeling here is strong for "satisfaction." and
the Monroe doctrine is popular. Gold is 1 18 to
ri ly on the strength of it, and unless the Secretary
of the Treasury resumes the usual sales of gold to
check a further rise, it will go higher. Californians
won't object, of course.
The correspondent at Washington of the New
York Tribune writes : My information to-day, de
rived from the very highest sources," is positively
to the ellect that the relations of our Government
with Fiance an J England are " entirely satisfac
tory," and there is no prospect or probability of any
serious disturbance of the present friendly relations.
Napoleon's French speculation in Mexico is exceed
ingly unpopular with the French, and the public
sentiment of France has already compelled him to
look about for the best means of gracefully with
drawing from it. The policy of our Government will
be Fitch as not to o'Jend the pride of r ranee, as such
otlencc would give Napoleon a chance to make the
Mexican adventuie popular with his people ; but we
will allow the Emperor quietly to slip out of the im
broglio without compromising his dignity. There is
the very best evidence to show that he will 44 jump
at such a chance," and that he is as anxious to em
trace it as we are to have him do it. This is the
true state of the case, and the public can readily
understand that no trilling occasion will be allowed
to make a rupture between the two Governments,
and the 'public cau safely assume, in advance, that
all the current Bio Grande stories are lies.
The Mexican- Qi kstioN. The subject of restora
tion of the Southern States, will, of course, be a
prominent and exciting topic in Congress. The tel-ep-aph
wires will inform you of results, and hence it
is useless to speculate in advance through the slow
medium of the nmils. But important as this sub
ject is, and is likely to be for many weeks and
months to come, it is less so than the condition of
things on the llio Grande in other wotds, our rela
tions with France.
The President of the United States is a strong
friend of the Liberal Government, and will do all he
can to advance its interests, but not at the expense
of war. The tedder of the appointment to General
LcgiOi as Minister to the Republic was intended
merely as moral aid, leaving Napoleon (for our
Government does net recognise the German Max )
to interpret the event rs he chooses. Our people are
unanimous iu the opinion that the Mexican Empe
ror should be served with a notice to vacate the
premise-, and an expression of this feeling will
doubtless find a vent through the national steam
pipe at the Capital. Resolutions similar to those
heretofore passed unanimously by the House of Rep
resentatives, but which were smothered iu the Sen
ate by Executive influence, will be repeated. So
France will not be ignorant of the fact that as,
during the late civil war we declared for the Monroe
lV'Ctrine, so in peace the utterance can be repeated
with stronger emphasis, and iu language which
must be understood.
The Secretary of State has mentioned to friends
here that he is (earful Congress may commit the
Government to such action as may lead to war, ex
pressing at the same time the ability of the Execu
tive Department, if left to itself, to avert such "a ca
lamity. But apart from Congress and the Executive, the
tlime of war may at ar time be ignited on the Rio
Grande. This is the fear of many members of Con
gress and others ; but our Government will take
every precaution possible to avert such an interest
ing and important pyrotechnic exhibition.

Wilson's Flan. Following is a synopsis of Wil
son's bill, introduced to-day, to maiutain and enforce
freedom. "The preamble recites that Congress sub
mitted au amendment to the Constitution providing
for the abolition of slavery, and official proclamation
Las beeu made that such amendment has been rati
fied by three-fourths of the States. The bill then
piovides that all laws, ordinances and regulations iu
any State or Territory, recognizing inequality of
civil rights or immunities among its inhabitants, in
consequence of race or color, shall be null and void;
and rendering it illegal to make or force such law
hereafter. Section second provides that the inhabi
tants of any State without distinction of color, will
be entitled to make contrasts, sue aud be sued, testi
fy in courts, purchase or tell real estate, and have
an equal benefit of all laws for the security of person
and property. Section three provides that uny pel
son violating the provisions of this act shall be guilty
of misdemeanor, aud puuished by a fine and impris
onment. Proceedings under this section in insu"
rcctionary States, may be made in military courts
till civil courts arc reestablished. Section lour pro
vides that the defendant, iu auy actiou in any court,
who shall claim auy rights under this act, by way of
defence may remove, by petition, such suit into any
proper District or Circuit Court.
Reiuction o; the Army. It has been deemed
prudent to stop the reduction of the volunteer force,
as the entire military strength of the country is now
reduced to less than 100,000 men, although were
the regiments all full there would be au aggre
gate strength of one hundred and eighty thousand
Pkesidknt Johnson's Views. Washington, Dec.
10. The following message from the President was
received and read :
To the Senate of the United States : In reply to
the resolution adopted by the Senate on December
12th, I have the honor to state that the rebellion
waired by a portion of the people against the properly
continue 1 authority of the Government of the United
States has beeu suppressed, and the Uuited States is
ia possession of every State in which insurrection
existed ; and that as far as could be done, the Courts
of the Uuited States have been restored, the Post
Otlices re-established, aud steps taken to put into
effective operation the revenue laws of the country.
As the result of measures instituted by the Executive,
with a view to inducing the resumption of the func
tions of States, comprehended iu the inquiry of the
Senate, the people of North Carolina, South Carolina,
Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas
and Tennessee, have reorganized their respective
State Governments, and are yielding obedieuce to
the laws and the Government of the United States
with more willingness and greater promptitude than
under the circumstances could have been reasonably
anticipated. The proposed amendment to the Con
stitution, providing for the abolition of slavery forever
within the limits of the country, has been ratified in
each of these States, with the exception of Mississippi,
from which no official information has beeu received.
In nevrly all of them measures have been adopted,
or are now pending, to confer upon the freed men
privileges which are essential to their comfort, pro
tection and security.
In Florida and Texas the people are making com
mendable progress in restoring State Governments.
No doubt is entertained but that they will at an early
period be in a condition to renew all practical
relations with the Federal Government. In that
portion of the Union lately iu rebellion, the nspect of
affairs is more promising than, in view of all the
circumstances, could well be expected. True that
in some States the demoralizing effects of war are to
be seen in occasional disorders, but these are of a
local character, nnd rapidly diss.ippearing, as the
authority of the civil power is extended and sustained.
Perplexing questions were naturally expected, from
the great and sudden chauge in the relations between
the races, but systems are generally developing
themselves under which die freed men wi.l receive
the protection to which he is justly entitled, nnd by
moans of his labor he w ill make himself a useful and
independent r ember cf the Commonwealth in which
he has his home. The people throughout the entire
South evince a loyal desire to renew their allegiance
to the Government and repair the devastations of
war by a prompt and cheerful return to peaceful
pursuits. Au abiding faith is entertained that their
actions will conform to their professions, and that
in acknowledging the supremacy of the Constitution
aud laws of the United States their loyalty will be
unreservedly given to the Government, whose leniency
they cannot fail to appreciate, aud whose fostering
care will soon restore them to a condition of prosper
ity. From all the information iu my possession,
and from that which was recently derived from the
most reliable authorities, I am induced to cherish
the belief that personal animosity is surely and rap
idly merzins itself into a spirit of nationality, and
! that when the question of reconstruction shall be
properly adjusted, the result will be the harmnious
restoration of the States to the National Union. The
report of Carl Schurz is herewith transmitted, as
requested by the Senate. No report from the Honor
able J. Covode has been received by the President.
The attention of the Senate is invited to the accompa
nying report of Lieutenant General Grant, who
recently made a tour of inspection through several
States where the inhabitants participated in the
rcbillion. Andrew Johnson.
General Grant's Report. General Grant in his
report accompanying the President's message says :
44 I am satisfied that the mass of''o v A.men n tne
S.-.uth accept the present si-- f,rtiiC weurood faith.
The questions which have hitherto divine-., the people
( the two sections slavery and State rights, or the
right cf a State to secede from the Union they regard
as settled forever by the highest tribunal that of
arms. No man can resist the law, executed at the
point of the bayonet. The rebellion ha3 left the peo
ple in a condition, not to yield that obedience to the
civil authority that the American people have gener
ally been in the habit of yielding, and which would
render the presence of small garrisons throughout
those States necessary until such time as labor returns
to its proper channel, and the civil authority is fully
established. I did not nn?et any one holding office
under the Government in the Southern States who
thought it practicable to withdraw the military from
the South at present. There- is such universal acqui
escence in the authority of the General Government
throughout that portion of the country that the mere
presence of a military force, without regard to num
bers, is suff.ci.nt to maintain order. My observations
lead me to li e Conclusion that the citizeLB of the
Southern States are anxious to return to self govern
ment within the Union as soon as possible."
Mr. Lawrence of Ohio, c tiered the following reso
it it. That public and national security
demands that as sn as may Le practicable Jeif.
Davis, the representative man of the rebellion, should
have a fair and impartial trial in t tie highest appro
priate civil tribunal of the country, for the treason,
most flagrant in character, by him committed, in
order that the Constitution and laws may be fully
vindicated, the truth clearly established and affirmed
that treason ;s a crime, and the offense may be made
infamous, and at the same time that the question
may be judicially settled finally ami forever, that no
State of its own will has the right to renounce its
place iu the Union; that public justice and natioual
security demand that in case of the conviction of the
said Jeff. Davis, the sentence of the law should be
carried into eiTcct ; that in like manner and for like
reasons such of the rucst culpable of the chief insti
gators anl conspirators of the rebellion as may be
necessary to satisfy the demands of public justice,
and to furnish security for the future, and those
criminally responsible for the murder and starvation
of Union prisoners cf war, should be tried aud pun
ished for the high crimes of which they have been
guilty, that justice should not fail of its purpose, and
that all who are guilty of, or are responsible for the
assassination of the late President, and great orleuJ
ors during the recent rebellion, guilty of and respon
sible for the murder and starvation of Union prison
ers of war, as well as those guilty of or responsible
for the other unparalleled violations of the laws of
warfare, are amenable to, aud should be tried, cou
victe I and punished by a military tribunal, author
ized by the United States and sanctioned by the
common laws of war and civilized nations, whenever
and so far as may be necessary to secure the ends of
justice. That the Committee on the Judiciary be
instructed to inquire what legislation, if any, may be
necessary to provide juries for treason and writs of
error, and to carry into effect the foregoing resolu
tion, and that said committee report by bill or otherwise.
