FRIDAY MORNING, BEPREMBER 23, 1859.
SOUTHERN PAOIFIO RAILROAD.
We have been favored with the perusal of a letter
lately received from Dr. Jeptha Fowlkes, President
of the lopthern Pacife Railroad Company, by H. B.
Folkereon, agent. The Doctor writes that he has
foll poeeesion of the road, and that everything has
been ettled satisfactorily and finally-that he has
provided for the liquidation of the indebtedness of
the Company, amounting to some $300,000, in cash
and paper, which imposes no fresh liability. The
old and new companies are satisfactorily merged,
and all paying stockholders will be fully protected.
The Company will right speedily be freed of all
onerons contracts, debts and other disabilities, and
then Mr. J. Edgar Thompson, of Pennsylvania, the
celebrated railroad mi.nager, will assume the Psres
dency. The assumption of the Presidency by Mr.
Thompson will unquestlonably add to the restige of
the enterprise, and ensure a large amount of publio
resident Fowlkea, whose letter was dated the
12th instant, expressed the hope that he would be
able to leave in ten or twelve days, but expected to
have the work commenced on the road before leav
ing. He says the feeling n Texas is well nigh anmi
monsin favor of their enterprise; and that, although
he has ample means to free the Company, he re
qaires means to prosecute the work on the road
with that expedition and amplitude which ia desir
As the success of this great enterprise-which may
now be set down as almost certain-will benest New
Orleans in a twenty-fold larger degree than it will
any other city, it seems to us our property-holders,
merchants and capitalists, should lend it a llberal
helping hand at the present juncture. Will they do
so 3 It is to be hoped they will.
The Oppealtlon Ticket.
[From the Alexandria American of the 17th.]
For some time past, some of the dyed-in-the-wool
Democrats of our parish, for the purpose of inspiring
a belief that they were sincere In their boasts of.on
idence in their own strength, made it a point, when.
ever they could come acreos a credlouly soit listener,
to express a great desire that there should be an op.
positno ticket ; if for nothing else, they would say,
not to give the Democratic party a chance to show
Ito omnipotence. Another reason assigned for this
wish was, that it would afford a means of distinguish
lng friends from foes, since, as they reosonably con
lauded, the latter would certainly never ino so good
an opportunity of striking a foman's blow.
Now to these worthies we have the doubtless grati
ylong intelligence to communicate, that their wish is
at last accomplished. There isan Opposition ticket;
yes, and such a ticket as will require for its defeat
something more than the boasted power of what they
choose sacrilegiously to denominate Democracy. A
ticket composed, not of time serving minions and
hangers-on of power, but of men who have ever
baodly trodden the straight-forward path of virtuonu
conviction; of men, who, scorningto fawn and whine,
and wag the tall like thesesocalled Democrats for the
sake of a master's favor and to avert his wrath, havre
always dared to act like freemen, independently
maintaining what they thought to be right. Such is
the Opposition ticket, against which these Demo
cratic sticklers for subserviency to party organization
are welcome to exert all their vaunted strength.
Yes, and we would advise them to do so; for they
may rest assured 'twill all be needed. The people of
Louisiana have at length become tired of seeing
fools and knaves foisted into office by means of packed
conventions. They have become tired of being com
pelled for the sake of party organization to vote for
men whose only recommendations were that they
buad a clean record,; hod never voted against the
party nominees, and had money to boy votes withal.
When we say the people of Loouisiana, we mean the
whole people-Democrats and Americans. Not the
party organization of Democrats ; for they would he
afraid, even if they desired, to act independently ;
bat Democrats in the true sense of the word-Demo
crats who have ever stood up to the time-honored
principles of their party-who have acted on convic
tions of right, and have been willing that othero
should do likewise. These are they who, acting with
the independent Americane, in opposition to rene
gade Americans and degenerate and corrupt Demo
crate, have chosen and will vote for and elect the Op
The Natchitoches Chronicle of the 17th says :
The weather for the last week has been fine, and
planters all over the parish give favorable accoonts
of the crops. A seasonable rain on Monday night
proved highly serviceable.
The river continues dead low, with no prospect of
an early rise. Even the small boats above the falls
experience great difficulty in navigation, and of
course regulate their charges for freight accordingly.
The Clalborne Advocate of the 14th says :
Our planters give us very contradictory accounts of
their cotton crops. Some report to nous over an aver
age crop, while others report that it will be short of
an average. Our own impressions, from the best in
formation we have been able to obtain, are, that the
cotton crop of Claiborne cannot exceed an average,
and may fall a little short of it. Cotton is opening
faster and earlier than usual, and our planters are
getting it out very rapidly in a very fne condition.
The Red River American of the 17th says :
The river is very low, and still falling. We are
glad to state, however, that there is nearly six feet of
water at the mouth, which has been very shallow
heretofore and caused boats a great deal of trouble.

has always been hitherto subject in these respects,

States. Bastardy will no longer follow, because a
priest refuses to marry, nor will the want of baptism
disinherit a child. These are important changes and
wise ones, too.
GeM. Zuazna was in Monterey on the 80th, on a
visit to Gov. Vidaurri, to confer with him upon various
points of the greatest interest to the public cause.
There is no intimation given as to the whereabouts
of Miramon, or as to any fighting had, which looks
badly for our Liberal friends. The defeat of Pacheco
by Hinojosa is confirmed, but Pachbeco had only 250
to 300 men. It is, however, evident that Miramon is
in the North in person, and the Monterey Boletin
gives his force thus: Infantry, 3351 ; cavalry, 882.

Ma. MoLAsa's Dararuaa.
Events crowd upon each other and verify my pro
diotions so rapidly that I am even bewildered in the
midst of the history which i. growing up around ma.
If you will turn over the files of the Crescent until
Maylast, you will find that I have written to you a
semi-monthly announcement of the failure of Mr.
McLane's mission, and always with the prophecy that
he would leave the country disappointed here, if not
broken down at home. I did not think to me a vert
fication so soon, but as the event has happened, why
I most accept it so a child born before the regular
nine months pregnancy. As you have probably
already published, he left Vera Cruz on the 3d of
September, In the sloop-of war Brooklyn, on a leave
of absence of two months. His leave-taking was
somewhat cold, if not outre,under the circumstances,
and it has already created a depression here, ua I
have no doubt it was intended to do. He was too good
a friend, says scandal, to go off without visiting old
man Juarez; and his abruptness seems to intimate that
the intimacy between him and thle Goversnlemt war
not so close as it was thought to be.
The fact of the matter, putting all diplomatio
interbhanges aside, is, that Mr. MoLane has semi
officially resigned, and will nevpr come back to
Mexico unless under different auspices. Hebas been
most scandalously deceived, both here and at home,
and unless he can bring Buchanan up to the rack of
doing something, or Joare up to the honesty of
keeping a promise, there is an end of the mission.
He will talk to Bchanan and LaReintree will listen to
Juarez, and thus on both hands he will be advised of
the condition of anffirs, whether pluck at home or
honesty here will justify hie rtarn. In the absence
of a decided ultimatum from Mr. Buchanan, which
will allow him to say, "Do this or fight," he is ue
less here, except as a polite chaperon to gallant the
beauties of Ben. Andreasde Tanta about on fete days.
We have a sufficient account to settle with Mexicoto
make a claim for indemnification or war; and as the
latter alternative will be forced upon us at last, what
is the use of hanging fire and putting off the adjust.
ment while the injuries inflicted upon our commerce
are daily on the increase ?
It ts given out that sickness, or impaired health,
hurried the Minister off, but to us on the spot this is
all gammon. I am not blind nor near-sighted, and
when I saw him a few days ago he looked quite
healthy, and was really lively. He has visited up
and down the coast, had good living, sea baths and
breezes, frequent excuriaons on the Brooklyn, aad
withal, a very pleasant time of it; moreover, he has
kept good company, been with the women, and hob
nobbed over champagne just like a well man too
much to impose on a clear-nighted individual like
your correspondent; and therefore I hope you will
excuse me for going under the curtains and peeping
about for actual causes for actual facts. I dislike to
contradict official documents, however, for you being
an official printer, might say that this was treason
against the whole class of official writings, from the
original ukase against Adam and Cain down to the
last proclamation of MayorStith; therefore, to make
this record correspond with the oracular and official
note, I here confess that the Minister was sick!
As an honest man, he was sick and tired of
the constant and never-ceasing falsehoods and do.
plicity with which he was surrounded and which has
shorn him of all power. It is not allowable that di
plomats shall grow excited and vent their angry feel.
nlogs in plain talk ; therefore he was compelled to
listen daily to a repetition of the most heartless prom.
ises, unblushing falsehoods, and selrlconvincing ho..
hug that could be thought or dreamed of. He did not
hear an honest word in Vera Cruz, unless from some
stranger or American, who indignantly told him how
false and treacherous this people were, and warned
him not to trust people who never trust each other!
He was sick of broken promises, of bad faith and a
fruitless labor. If he might have hoped for any
thing from Mr. Buchanan it would have made the
burthen supportable; but, knowing that his sole de
pendence was upon Juarez, and that the latter had
nothing to give, what could detain him here? He
did not.merely hold office for the sake of the paltry
$1000 per month, but for the great hope of doing
something worthy of diplomacy and statesmanship.
He has failed, first, through his original mistake,
which I pointed out to you in a letter dated the 16th
of April, and which reads at present like a history
written by a clairvoyant who actually read the fu.
ture; and, secondly, through the lack of nerve in
those who guide affairs at Washington.
The legation is in the hands of Mr. La Reintree, a
Baltimorean, of French extraction, well read, fluent
In Spanish, instructed in the meaningless professions
of his people, and consequently a capable Minister,
pro tem. Mr. Reintree might not cope with Mr. Mc
Lane in profound learning, in deep thought, or in
legal acumen, but he is better able to negotiate with
Mexicans than Mr. McLane can ever hope to become.
La Reintree will have no delicacy in a cause where it
is not understood, but will plainly state what he
wants, how he proposes to get it, and what be will do
if it is not conceded. I do not know that he will
offend Mr. McLane by any precipitate movement, but
if he had nobody to consult but Buchanan it is
altogether probable we should have a moss in the
Gulf before two months could have restored the ac
tual Minister to his post. I send you a copy of Mr
LmGcrAeoN or RE UNITEsD Oh8m,
Vsr. Cruc, Aguost 29, eO9.
Sir: His Excellency, the President of the United
States, having granted me leave of absence from this
city for a short time, in order to re5etablish my
health, I do not believe that any matter can arise in
the meantime which shall disturb the negotiations
entrusted to my charge.
Proposing tm take advantage of this license in the
month of September, I have the honor to inform you
that daring my absence Mr. H. I. de Ia Recntree,
Secretary of Legatlion, will remain in this city and its
vicinity to receive any communications which may
be directed to the Legation of the United States;
and, should the occasion require it, he will enter into
correspondence with the Constitutional Government
under the instmructions which he has received from
I beg that you will inform his Excellency, President
Juarez, of my intention, informing him at the same
time that I do not think my absence will be extended
longer than through the months of September and
I have the honor to be your attentive friend,
ROBERT N. MOLANE.
To His Exenrensy, Don J. A. dela Fu oete, Minister of For
eign Relations of the Meflcau Republic.
I should like to traslate the reply if I thought you
would print it, but it is not worth the room. It
simply says, " Your note was received, Mr. Minister-
distinguished honor-sorry you are sick-sorry you
are going away-distinguished and able represent.
ative-friend of Mexico-hope you will come back."

Ten ENSUING CaMPAIGN-MONEY WANTED.
Next in importance in my budget of news is the
campaign which it is proposed to open against the
City of Mexico just so soon as money can be had. It
Is generally believed here that Senor Tejada will be
successful, and as that is all that is wanted now, I
suppose your correspondent will have to say that
there is an imminent prospect of a big fight in a month
or two. In fact, the campaign has already opened by
the attack upon and capture of the city of Leon, in
San Luis Potosi, by Gen. Hinogoso, on the 11th nit.
The fight is said to have been extensive, but as there
were only 400 Conservatives in the town, I presume
they all ran away before Hinogoso's superior force,
leaving their arms and munitions behind them. This
little fqps was thought worthy of an extra from the
office of the official newspaper of the place, and there.
fore I put it down as the Boffalora of the campaign, to
be followed quoickly, I hope, by the grand Solferino
which shall bring matters to a conclusion. Large
detachments of troops, amounting in all to 12,000
men, and capable of being reinforced to 30,000, are
cantoned off throughout the lRepublic, simply waiting
for the arrival of money to make a movement. I
presume, in this latter respect, the movement of Mr
McLane wesld have a damaging tendency, for It
makes matters doubtfal between oUtrelves and the
M'exicans. In fact, I am of opinipn that he Minister

A courier was intercepted between Mexico and
Jalapas, with letters for General Robles from Corona,
Secretary of War. In one of these precious doco
meont, the Secretary tells the General that the Go.
ernment is out of money, and that it sonnot supply
the army at Jalapa with more fonds. Bot, ays the
war office, " we are bound to have money, or we are
lost, and with as the country. To avoid this calamity,
the Government has taken a firm and decided Inten
tion to raise money by any means, letting the coose
quences take care of themselves; and advises Gen.
Roble to throw aside his croples and put funds In
hi. pocket in the ame way." There is a private
Mexican letter, i id it is Aonest. I think t isthe first
one I ever aw, and if rogues ha4 not fallen out, I
think it is doubtful if the world would have had the
benefit of their secrete in this open handed wry.
You know the old saying, "when thieves fall out,
honest men get their doe."
Wasi ComorU or BISnors.
The Blshops of the various dioceses of Mexico were
assembled together by order of the Arch-bishops in
the city of Mexico, to consider the merits aad de
mands of the war. The voice of the Church is still
for war, though its poCkets clamor loudly against the
expenses. The padres are wlling to see the slaughter
go on, and pray for a bloody war, but they are so
miserly with their cash, that I mightily fear they are
not only losing the country, but they are losing
caste. Every body says, give us money and the revo
lotion shall be put down; and though all this gas is
for their benefit, to maintain their odious proecrip
tions, yet they fall to make those pecuniary saorlflcaes
which are needful to bring about such sanguinary
resale. The Arch-bishop proposed to let the war out
on contract to any party who would do the rough
work cheapest. Miramon was the only bidder, and
he proposed, In consideration of the sum of P$00,000
in cash, and $5,000,000 in short installments, to put
an end to the row, and reinstate the Church in its
prerogatives. Now, I hbarve but little doubt of Mirn
mon's success, if the Church should come down hand
somely and stick up to him cosrageously; for the
man who pays best, getes the biggest crowd of sol.
diers behind him in this country. Bat, unfortunately,
a dissenting voice was raised, and the Bishop of
Mungia said, "Let the war take care of itself; we
have paid out enough money; we are cheated on all
sides!" That sentence told the story, and the
balance of the session was held in secret. I think
the determination of the council has not transpired,
and whatever it is, no good has come of it yet.
THE ARo-BISHOP CoHIATED--HIS ExCILrqumO
BANRurPT Axn HIs PAPma PROTaBTED.
Letters from Mexico relate a "transaction" be
tween Miramon and the Arch-bishop, which reflects
on the honesty of the one and the sagacity of the
other. The venerable prelate was in debt, or rather
Miramon held his paper for $60,000, payable In one
year. He offered to shave these obligations at the
rate of 50 per cent., which Miramon agreed to, and
the Arch-bishop paid $30,000 into the treasury. He
then sent for his notes, and was rather astonished to
find that Miramon had just sold them to a broker at
a discount of 35 per cent., thereby obtaining within
15 per cent. of the full value. His reverence was
full of anger, and sooght to protest, but the notaries
could do nothing for him, as the Church now has its
own judges, who are called ecclesiastical, and who
alone can take cognizance of religious disputes, and
the notary of the Arch-biahop is now in Rome. But
it is a poor role that only works one way; so, when
certain large demands fell doe against the Arch-bishop
a few days after, he denied the payment, saying he
had no money. The creditor in thiscase could do
nothing, for the ecclesiastical judge is in Rome, and
therefore no protest could be entered. But the
broker applied to Miramon in this extremity, and
the latter very ungratefually appointed a commission
to inquire into the matter, so his reverence was illy
treated all round.
GRAND BAPrTIS-90so rnIGo FOR THE LADIES.
Mexican news is usually barren of items which
are supposed to interest ladies, for they, bless their
souls, in our country, detest cowards and liars, and
therefore naturally hate to read of the treachery,
cowardice and falsehoods of which my letters so con
tinually speak. On the 28th of September, as the
twilight closed over the valley of Mexico, and the
lingering sunshine played arond the turrets of Castle
Chapultepec, that splendid residence and fortifica
tion shone out from its emerald setting like a new
sun. It was lit up from bastion to flag-staff with
lanterns and gas lights, and inside was gathered the
wealth, power and beauty of the city of the ancient
kings. The occasion was the baptism of the first
son and only child with which Madame Miramon has
blessed her lord. The Arch-bishop, or rather the
Pope of Mexico-for while this country has been cut
off from Rome the Areh-bishop has acted as Vice
Gerent of Jesus Christ-officiated at the ceremony,
and invoked the blessing of Heaven. The little fel
low was called Miguel Napoleon de Miramon, and
seemed to be very happy, never crying once, says a
letter I have seen to a lady. After the baptism, the
young Miramon was taken possession of by the
crowd, who passed him from hand to hand like a
piece of wax-work, exclaiming all the while, " how
beautiful I" The ladies ultimately got him into their
hands, and smothered the little fellow with kisses.
A splendid repast followed the ceremony, and many
a bumper of champaign was offered to the newly
born successor to the Dresent ruler in Chanultennn.
PROTECIVE SYSTEM IN A NEW LIGHaT.
The beauties of the "protective system" are re
fined and developed to perfection in this country,
and I think your Massachusetts men had better out
this paragraph out for reference when their particu
lar ideas triumph in the United States. Nothing is
undertaken here without Government aid, which is
usually vouchsafed in the form of a monopoly or ex
clusive privilege. We have published in the Pro
gresso, in one day, four applications for benefits of
the most trivial character. One man has discovered
a new mode of navigating the water, and asks to be
protected in its exclusive benefits for eight years.
He says his machine is so simple, and yet so efleceive,
that when once discovered the commonest intellect
can comprehend and build it,and the country will be
flooded with them to his great disadvantage. Another
wants the exclusive privilege of supplying the in
terior of the Republic with shell and other kinds of
fish. Another wants to be the monopolist of all
saw mills in the State of Tobasco for the dressing of
mahogany; and another, having discovered a new
crater to an old volcano, wants to be the sole mann
facturer of powder; and a fifth desires to have the
coasting trade from this place to Tlacotalpan under
his contol, because he has a steamer, or can get one.
All these things are considered fair here, and the
Government is expected to oppress ninety-nine people
that one fellow, with four or five thousand dollars,
may be secured in its investment by the State. The
inventor is entitled to some protection for the work
of his head, and therefore I go in for giving the fel
low with the new boat, " without steam or other
present known means of propulsion," a fair shake ;
but those other knaves," who monopolize air and
water because they have got three or four thousand
dollars in one or the other, are to be severely con
demned for their selfishnee, and ought not to receive
the slightest attention from Government. I suppose
Massaachusett will ask, if old Buchanan gets protec

The Civilian of Tuesday gives the following ac

Large quantities of white wax have been coming
ashore on the Texas coast the past month. We hear
that one man on Matagorda bay has realized $900 on
what he picked up. A considerable quantity has
been found along the shores of Galveston Island and
Paoint Bolivar. This wax, for the most part, is not of
the kind formerly found, and supposed to have been
submerged iu the Gulf by the foundering of a vessel
in 1833. We underetand that of two Spanish vessels
bound for Vera Cres, and doe about June last, one
arrived and the other has not been heard of. They
encountered the storm that dlsmasted the Belgian

mining vesel is probably that from which most of
this wax comes. It has a new and clean appearance
on the surface, different from the wax formerly
washed ashore. The cakes weigh from 30 to 45
panods, and are stamped with the name of" E. de P.

Yesterday in the afternoon, Mr. Wi. Wilson re

lorty miles to the southeast from here, bad bees at
tacked by Indians during his absence on the 9th oinst.,
that one man, one woman and two children were
killed; one woman and child missing ; and one man
badiyl wounded. The man killed, called Warmond,
and the wounded one, called Lackey I believe, was
an old man; both were Americans; the woman and
children were free people of color. A few hours
after the news came in, eight men,all that could be
mounted upon so short a notice, started in pursuit.
The Indians are said to number about twenty, and
appear to be in no huarry, knowing, probably, that
*there are no troops who could pursue them. It is
very probable theat they have since also attacked the
ranch of Smith & Jockoo, which is at a distance of
about twelve miles from that of Mr. Wilson.
The whole country from the Nueces river to the
Rlo Grande, tfrom Fort Clark, where no troops but
artillery are stationed, down to Corpus Christi, is
without protection. A few companies of mounted
men could keep it clear of Indians, so-calIed Mostang
hunters, and ether scouondreis who infest it.
The Herald of the 17th says, editorially:
We learn from a gentleman just in from Laredo
that a party of twenty Indians killed a Mexican boy
last Friday, near the old town of Palafox, in Webb
county, and then went down within four or five miles
of Laredo, where they stole a lot of horses from the
rancho of Don Joan Farias. A party of twenty men
under Don Refugio Beoavides started last Sunday
morning from Laredo in purasit.
Two fine American mares, one a sorrel with a colt
