MEXICO.
The letter of our special correspondent on
the Rio Grande, which was published in Tues
day morning's paper, gives a deplorable ac
count of the condition of that portion of
M iexico now under Liberal rule-an account.i
however, which we are satisfied, from other
evidence, if any other were needed than our
correspondent's statement, is strictly correct.
Since the expulsion of the Imperialists and
Is the occupation of Tamaulipas by the Liberals,
it has been the same old story that has been
r told of Mexico from the first day she became
a so-called republic. Anarchy, arbitrary mili
tary rule, quarrels among officials, and forced
loans from the unhappy people, follow each
other in quick and regular succession. If
there is anypolitical proposition which seems
e to be incontrovertibly demonstrated, it is that
the people of Mexico are unfit to have a dem
e oaratie form of government.
Of the eight millions of people who inhabit
Mexico there are, according to our correspon
g dent's classification, six millions whom he
a styles "passive brutes"--men and women with
scarcely more intelligence or civilization than
a the beasts of the field, more thoroughly ser
vile than ever the slaves of the Southern
States were, and working either for unjust
task-masters or for the first military roblber
and bandit that comes along. Of the remain
ing two millions, nine-tenths are the robbers,
c1 ut-throats andrevolutionists who plunder the
others, while an insignificant fraction only of
the population includes all who make anypre
tension to enlightenment, civilization or de
cency. That a country composed of such
elements of pgpulation can ever have a suc
cessful government of the people, is absurd.
That it must constantly be the prey of ambi
tious and unscrupulous military rulers, is
manifest. That the history of Mexico is a
reproach upon PRepublican institutions, and
has a tendency to bring them into contempt,
we presume no one will have the audacity to
deny.
What is the present state of the case ? The
presidency of Juhrez expired by constitutional 1
limitation several months ago. By the terms i
of the Constitution, in the event of a vacancy
in the presidency, the office devolves upon an I
officer corresponding to the chief justice of i
the supreme court with us. That officer ws i
Ortega. Yet we see Juarez, in defiance of the I
law, still assuming to be president and Jexer- i
cising a limited authority as such, -while it is i
clear that if there is a republic in Mexico at
all, Ortega is the legitimate head of it. We
see, also, in the State of Tamaulipas, gover
nor succeeding governor with almost every
change of the moon, or at least as often as I
military force or the fickleness of the people I
choose to substitute one ruler for another 1
Meantime, under whichever executive power
the people may happen temporarily to be, it 2
is the same old story of plunder and pillage- i
of assassinations and military executions-of
robberies in open daylight, and of contempt I
for law or order not surpassed by the reguila
tors in Tennessee forty years ago, or the jay
hawkers of the present day in Kansas. And t
thus one of the most beautiful and productive t
countries on the surface of the globe is going o
to ruin, politically and socially, out of defer- c
ence to the absurd opinion that any sort of
people, no matter how low down in the scale
of civilization, are capable of governing them
selves.
Is it not quite time for the United States
government to cease treating Mexico as a
republic ? Let us assume-which is by no
r means certain-that the attempt to establish
e an imperial government in Mexico is a failure.
Letus suppose Maximilian to be expelled the
couttry, or that he leave it voluntarily. What
then? The government would revert to a
y republican form, "so called," and the last
state of Mexico would be worse than the first.
r Every native adherent of Maximilian would
id be put to death or banished, and his property
econfiscated The country would for a time be
a Pandemonium. It would be torn and dis
*e tracted by civil feuds as well as military.
it There would be no security of life, no secu
rity of' prolperty, and no prospect
for the future except a repetition of I
the same old scenes of anarchy, rapine and
d guerrilla warfare. Yet this is the result which
o it seems to us the policy of our government is I
L tending to produce. This policy cannot be
e pursued out of deference to what is called
r- the Monroe doctrine, which is practically no E
n doctrine at all, and is very far from meaning
r interference in the affairs of neighbor
ing nations. It . is not pursued in
consonance with, because it is directly
s in opposition to the policy laid down by
Washington of non-intervention. It is as
policy which temporizes with the Mexican l
a question. Either let us lend the weight of
our influence to the permanent establishment
of Imperialism in Mexico, and thus secure a
a peaceable and quiet neighbor instead of the I
turbulent and troublesome one Mexico would a
be under the restoration of the republic-or
a else let us boldly intervene and establish a
Sprotectorate as Sam Houston suggested, or 3
r colonize it and take possession of it in the n
interest of American civilization. National p
nuisances should be abated, as well as private 5
t ones-andit seems clear that if Mexico be p
permitted to degenerate again into what the b
people there understand to be a republic, no ri
a other than a heroic remedy should be adopted 2
t by this government to prevent that country
3 from becoming a scandal to free institutions
r knd to civilization. hi
An inquisitive young gentleman, who read fi
a paragraph copied in the CirEScsT of Wed
nesday from an exchange, headed: " How to s
Save Ourselves from Drowning," puts the a
following questions, which we answer seria
tim:
1. Does a man's hat remiin on his head
when he takes an unexpected plunge in twenty b
foot water ?i
Answer.-That depends partly upon his is
having such a 'attribute to his head-which of
of course, if he has not, is not very 'edifying. as
2. Has any allowance been made, by the m
ingenious discoverer, for air holes in the top hi
of most folks' hats ?
Ans.-If there is ary hole, sure allowance
should be made for the extraordii-arUy cir- pi
cnumtance. di
3. Suppose it is a woman; how about the iii
hat, then, with the present style in vogue? lI
,, Why, in that case, cogue la galire ! w
But the inquisitive young gentleman need a,
have no personal anxiety on this score: A P

COLLECTION OF THE COTTON TAX.
We are glad to say that the representations
of the gentlemen sent to Washington to ask a
remission of the onerous regulations concern
ing the collection of the cotton tax, have not
been without effect. Trustworthy informa
tion has reached us that the government, im
pressed with the justice of the memorial ad
dressed to them, have consented to make cer
tain'modifications of the regulations which
will be felt as a great relief by a large portion
of our agriculturalists. In the first place one
of the three collection districts into which this
State was divided, isto be forthwith abolished,
by an order to be issued by the commissioner
of internal revenue, and, henceforth there will
be but two such districts. But what will be
really a relief to the planter is the remission
of the duty to have his cotton weighed on
plantation or at remote stations to which it
wouldhave to be hahled at great expense and
with great trouble. The gentlemen were prob
ably right who declared that this system, if
presisted in, would render it impracticable to
get even the actual limited crop .to market,
within twelve months. The consequences of
so great a delay would have been not only
embarrassing but disastrous. Every cent that
planters can realize from their crop this year
will be needed, at an early period, to enable
them to make preparation for next year's
planting on even a small scale. If they should
be delayed until spring in getting their re
ceipts, they would not be able to do anything
at all in the way of raisinga crdp next year. It
is only'suprisingthat these considerations did
not suggest themselves to the framers of the
regulations in the first place. It really did
seem as if the object of those regulations, as
it appears unquestionably to have been the
object of Congress in imposing the tax, was
utterly to ruin and impoverish the Southern
States. So far as the executive branch of the
government is concerned, of course, any such
suspicion must be unfounded; and we are
delighted to find that there has been exhib
ited so ready an appreciation of our necessi
ties, and so frank an acknowledgment of
error.
tcv Hereafter the taxes on cotton will be paid,
an and the weighing of the article will be done
of in New Orleans-that is to say, cotton which
,as I is the product of the State of Louisiana. We
he presume that similar regulations will be made
er- in other States. We had hoped that the cot
is ton of Arkansas and Mississippi, at least, and
at of the other districts which have their natnral
Ye outlet at New Orleans, might be suffered to
er- come here for weighing and payment of
ry taxes ; but we suppose that some insuperable
as legal objection to this concession must have
ale been disc vered to exist. At all events, the
cr. planters o? Louisiana have gained a great
rer deal ; and they owe much to the enlightened t
it zeal and energy of the merchants of New Or- i
- leans, and to the prompt action and kindly I
of sympathy of the government at Washington.
pt For such other reforms as are needed we can
la- wait with a hopeful anticipation of the time
,y- when even radical majorities will discover'
ad that oppressive taxation and onerous restric- t
ve tions imposed on the industry of one section t
ag of the country are sure to react with perni
ir- cious effect on the other.

Berkeley Springs, in Virginia. was quite crowded
this summer with gentlemen-Washingtonians, all
belonging more or less to the Southern-sympathy
persuasion. Secretary Browning and Mrs. Brown
ing, of Illinois, were among the lions of the
springs, and not a few of the faithful of the Phil
adelphia convention repaired thither to enjoy the
fascinating society of the elegant Mrs. and highly
refined and scholarly Mr. Secretarty of the In

Lord Cowley, a nephew of the great Duke of
Wellington, and ambassador of Great Britain in
France since 1852, has been recalled. He was a
crony of Napoleon's from the time of the conup
d'etat, and his companion on the turf. His de
parture from Paris is hailed with delight by the
English community, as he, as well as his wife and
daughters, were unpopular in consequence of their
excessive haughtiness. The noble lord was as
stingy as he was haughty, and most chary in his
hospitalities. He is to be succeeded by Baron
Stanley of Alderley, (not Earl Stanley, Derby's
son, and present minister of foreign affairs,) who
officiated formerly as under secretary of foreign
affairs, as president of Board of Trade, and in va
rious other public capacities.
Great surprise is expressed in naval circlesthat,
while upward of a dozen generals of the army
have received foreign appointments since the war,
not one single naval officer should have been
deemed eligible for such honors; and it is hoped
that the mission to the Hague, and to Brussels,
and to Constantinople will be tendered some of
our retired commodores, it being now understood
that all those who still hold otaice from the time of
Lincoln's administration are to be recalled.
Mr. Corcoran, the Washington banker and
secessionist, was conspicuous among those who
saluted the President on his recent return to
Washington. He drove up in great gala to the de

Georgetown, he was recognized by the populace
as lie drove by the City Hall. Like all men who

Quite a new phase of political excitement de
veloped itself lately in WashmgtWon. Two women
began to quarre! a-Ioue politics while they were
waiting for the arrival of the President, and the
one who tool the part of Congress called her an
:tfn!ui-t a ."vii;ainous copperhead treasury clerk
woman," and sac d that she was not quite sunak o

bystaniers to calm the two belligerent females.
The co:s.r: at Cildia, who has got into trouble
with the Turkish authorities, is Mr. Stillman, a
well known artist. and writer on art, and latcl
consul at Rome. aMr. Stillman is the last man in
the world to be capable of an act of injustice; and
if he has taken the part of the Christians. it is
because they are in the right, and the Turkish
barbarians, as usual, in the wrong.
Roger de Beauvoir's death has created a painful
sensation in the literary world of Paris. He wasa
sprightly writer, full of genius and brilliancy. His
funeral was attended by all the literary notabili

ber of literary ladies.
The report that Miss Spurgeon, who traveled in

Longfellow is still busy over his translation of
