THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PniLADELPMA, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 18C9. MAXIMILIAN. Of the attempts of the Emperor Maximi lian t effect an escape, of which fow duUila have reached Inn puMio, tho diary of (lie prin cos rotitaiiiH tho following: "I hud long Honght to convince tho Em peror of tho necessity of treating with tho commanding ofllccrs ruthor than with their unbordinateH, if ho would effect an oioapo. Ono of these I lial already won over, Colonol Villannova, who wa in command of tho troops guarding tho city. Villanueva took a deep interest in tho fate of the Emporor, and thought it would le a m'lMfortuiio for tho country if the povernmcnt did not spare hm life. For this reason ho was ready to ren lor us all the aaniHUnce in his power, lie refused to accept money for himself, although ho w,n poor and had to provide for dependent rola tions, and trnstod to the Emperor t.ikin liiin to Enropo and securing him somo posi tion there. "Colonel Villanenva told me, however, that ho alono could do nothiug; that it was nitron sary to win over Colonel 1'itlacios, who h vl immediate command of tho prisons. "To this end I naked the Emperor to do posit one hundred thousand dollars in g.M with Messrs. Kubio, to lie drawn as eirouni fitancos should ro'iuiro. Koady money, I told the Emperor, I had learned by cxpiirioncfl, was the lirst necessity if one would treat with Mexicans. "Ho replied that money was tho lo:tst of his cares, as Baron Magnus, together with tho other ministers, had assured him that any Bums he might require wero at his disposal. "I now informed him that I ha 1 arrange J everything with Villanenva, who was to open his prison-doors, and provide nn escort of u hundred men to conduct him to Corro Gordo, and thence to tho coast. "The Emperor approved tho plan, lnt in sisted that 1, with Dr. U:isi-h, should necom pany him on horseback. Ho feared that ho might be betrayed and murdered, mil thought that the presence of a lady might servo at a protection. "I told him that I would undertake tho negotiation with Colonel Palacios, who had charge of the convent uard, and was in tho habit of spending tho entire niht walking up and down tho hall boforo tho emperor's room, but that I could do nothing without money. "With horror the Emperor now saw his position in its true light, and regretted bit terly that he had lost so much time, and hal not sooner supplied himself with money. Hi had none at all, but said ho would do his utmost to obtain what might be required. "Tho next time I wont to him I fouud him in despair. Ho found it impossible to obtain tho money to bribe the colonel, but ho oll'ere.l me two bills of exchange, each, for ono hun dred thousand dollars, on the Emperor and im perial family of Austria. He said ho would send me five thousand dollars by nine o'clock in the evening, at tho latest, as it was impera tive that I should have that amount to hand to Palacios for distribution among the sol diers, or to distribute among them myself. Up to that moment, I had made no overtures to Talacios. It was arranged between Villa nueva and myself that 1 should leave tho prison at eight o'clock, accompanied by Pala cios, whom I should endeavor to keep with me till ten o'clock. "I was not lodgod at that timo in an hotol, Irat with Madame Tepita Vicentis, tho widow of a gentlomon of our party, who was killed during the siege. General Echegtvry lodgod in the same house. This, old lady was ex tremely kind towards tho imprisoned, and during tho whole time provided for fifteen of them. "I remained with the tho Emporor until 8 o'clock, and had a long and interesting con versation with him. He confided to mo his secret cares and fears, and talked of his plans for the future should he return to Europo. He spoke most feelingly of his mother, for whom he gave me tender messages and other commissions, in case I alone should return to Vienna. This interview made mo very sad, and I felt a fearful presentiment that I should never see him again. "Just before 8 o'clock he handed mo Lis seal ring, If I succeeded with Palacios, tho colonel was to return the ring to him that evening. I left him with a heavy heart and little hope, for I was about to undertake a very difficult task with very slender means two pieces of paper, the value of which tho person with whom I had to treat would pro bably be ignorrnt. "Colonel Palacios was an Indian, who could hardly read or write. He was, however, a brave soldier, had distinguished himself on -more than one occasion, and had won tho special confidence of his superiors, who had made him a kind of provost marshal, and in trusted him with all the executions. He had a young wife, who had recently presented him with their first child, which was the father's idol. As he was poor, I hopod that the thought of securing independence for this child would incline him to accede to my pro posal. "The colonel accompanied mo homo, and I asked him into tho parlor. I began immedi ately to speak of the Emperor, in order to seo how he" stood affected, and if there was any room to hope for success. "He told me ho had been ono of his most bitter enemies, but since he had been so much about Win, had seen how nobly he had borne himself in his misfortunes, and since he had looked at his loyal, manly face, with its clear blue eyes, that he felt for him the greatest compassion, if not love and admi ration. "After thus fooling my way for some fifteen or twenty minutes, I came, with a palpitating heart, to the matter. Tho moment upon which all depended, had arrived the moment on which the life and death of a noble and good man, who had honored me with his friendship, and who was my sovereign. I said to the colonel that I had a communica tion to make to him that was of the greatest ' moment to him as well as to myself and others; but before I proceeded he must give me, not only his word of honor as a soldier and a gentleman, but swear by all he held dear, that he would not betray me to any one, even should he refuse to entertain my pro posal. "He gave me his word of honor, and swore, by the love he bore bis wife and young child, to observe the most profound secrecy. "T now told him I knew positively that the Emperor had been sentenced to death, and would certainly ue buoi mu onunpeu, which he acknowledged he believed to be true. Then I gave hiin to understand that I had arranged with others everything for his escape, if he for ten minutes would turn his back and close his eyes; that without his co. operation we could do nothing, and that the life of the Emperor was in his hands. . The tragic urgency of the case induced me to l?peak without reserve. I said I knew he was poor, that he bad a wife and child whose future in these uncertain times was very insecure; and . that I could offer him an opportunity to assure their here offered him one hundred thousand dol lars, and promised to givo him immediately fivo thonsund dollars ia coin for himself and his soldiers. I represented to him thit what I proposed was not contrary to his honor, as in no way could ho do his country so groat a service1 as in accepting. The execution of tho Emperor would arm tho whole world against Mexico; if, however, he escaped, no Euro pean power would in futuro meddle with the domestio concerns of his country. I said much more, to all of which he listened atten tively. It was very clear, from tho expres sion of bis face, that ho was strongly tempted. "At lust I was silo it, and it was his turn to speak. Ho laid bis hand on his heart, and assured mo that he felt tho doepest sympathy for Maximilian thet he believed it would bo best for Mexico to let him escape, but that ho could not dncido so important ft matter on the instant; in any me, however, he could not accept tho bill." He took it, never! heloss, into his hand, and looked nt it with evident cu riosity. The Indian could not probably com prehend that such a slip of paper, with half a dozen lines written on it, could secure a for tune for himself mid his young family. A piiTno of gold would have been a much mora tdoqnent advocate. "He handed th"'bi!l bock to mo, saying ho could not accept i!; that ho would take the ni;bt to consider tho matter, and let mo know his decision in tho t. orning. "I showed him (ho Emperor's ring, told him for what purpo o it had been given me, mid begged him to return it that night. Ho took it and put it on his finger, but, after re llectirig for a few moments, ho took it off, faying ho could not accept it, and that ho must have time for it llcttion. Ho then said a good deal about l is honor, disgracing his wife and child, etc. " 'Well, colonel.' said I, 'I see you havo not yet decided. Tnke time to consider, ami remember your word of honor and your oath. You know that nothing can be dono without you, and no good would come of your betray ing inc.' "Colonel Villaiiueva, who was very anxious to know the result of tho interviow, camo a littlo after '. o'clock, aud was soou followed by )r. E.isch, but without tho fivo thousand dollars. "When Palacios had left, I told them t lint nothing could bo done that night, but that I was Kot without hope. "Palacios seems to havo considered my pro posal until about mi luight, when ho went to Escobedo and informed him of everything. "Tho next inori,.ng, I uro,o to find tho house guarded. Every ono was allowed t enter, but no ono could leave without boin arrested. This wi.s tho fato of Dr. Haseli, who camo to mo l i tin tho Emperor with the following note: " 'QrtUKTAito. .l.mo lit, li'.7. The two bills, lor one hundiv I thousand dollars ca.'h, which I drew to-dny for Colonels Palacios and Villaiiueva on the Imperial family of Austria, are valid only on co; -. lit ion that I am rescued by tho above-named colonels. 'Mvximiman.' "Two servants of tho Emperor came to mo with a message that ho wished to seo mo im mediately. I alre i ?v knew that Palacios h il broken his word, un 1 that Dr. llaschhad boon arrested. This info, ination was conveyed in a note from an office r on Escobedo's stutt'." Tho Princess, on account of tho important part sho had tuken in this plan to savo tho lifo of Maximilian, was sent to Sun Luis Potosi ns a prisoner. J. hero she made another last effort to obtain tho pardon of President Ju arez for tho condemned. She says: "The last day before tho execution had come; the next morning tho Emperor was to be shot. Although I hud littlo hope, still I determined to make ono more effort to move tho heart of the man who alono had (ho power to prevent the terrible tragedy. Tho p do, melancholy face of him whoso clear blue eyes had inspired with compassion even tho Indian Palacios was ever before me. "It was eight o'clock in tho oveniug whan I went to the President, who immediately re ceived me. He was pale, and looked care worn. With trembling lips I plea Jed for the lifo of tho Emperor, or at lc;t-t for a repito. Ho said ho could not grant even a respite, that it would only prolong the E nporor's agony, and that ho must dio tho next morning. "When I heard those terrible words I was wild with grief. I trembled iu every limb, and, sobbing, I fell on my knees, and pleaded with words that came warm from tho heart. Tho President sought to raiso me, but I clung to his knees and wo'dd not riso till ho had granted my prayer; 1 thought I must move him to compassion. I saw he was doeply moved; he, as well as Senor Iglesias, who was present, could not restrain his tears. Ho mid to me, in a sad, tremulous tone: 'It pairn me, madam, to see you thus on your knoes before me, but, if all the kings and queens of Europe were prostrate beforo mo, I could not save his life. 1 do not take it; it is tho law, the people demand it, not I. If I f.iilod to do the will of the people, my life would be tho penalty.' " 'Oh,' I cried, in my despair, 'if blood must How, take my life, tho life of n useless woman, and spare that of a man who unxy do bo much good in another country !' "All was in vain. Tho President raised mo to my feet, and ngui.i assured mo that tho lifo of my husband should bo spared. Ho said ho was very seriously compromised, and would certainly be condemned to death, but that, as I had gained his esteem and admira tion by my efforts in behalf of M iximili m and my husband, h would grant my petition so far as he could. Ho would pardon my hus band, and was grieved that ho could do no more. I thanked hiiu, and went. "In the anteroom, I found more than two hundred ladies of San Luis, who had couio to plead for the lives of the threo condemned men. They were admitted, but their prayers were of no more avail than mine. "Later, Madame Miramon came, leading her two children. The President could not refuse to see her. Senor Iglesias told mo it was a heart-rending scene to seo t his poor woman and her innocent little ones plead for the life of the husband and tho father. The President, he said, suffered terribly in tho ia interviews to think that stern necessity com pelled him to take the life of the noble Maxi milian and his two 'brothero,' but he could not do otherwise "Madame Miramon fainted and was car ried out of the room. "I could not close m eyes that night, somo hours of which I passed in the church, with a number of ladies of our party, praying. "In the course of the morning tho tele graph announced the'sad intelligence that the executions had taken pluce and that all was over.

W'q havo seen by tho newspapers that Dr. dimming, of Scotland, has inquired .f you whether leave would bo given at tho ppprooebiiig Council to thoso who dissont from the Catholic Church to put forward the arguments which they think can bo advanced in support of their own opinions; and that, on your replying that this was a matter to be determined by the Holy Seo, ho has written to ns upon the subject. Now, if tho inquirer knows what is the belief of Catholics with respect to tho teach ing authority which has been given by our Divine Saviour to His Church, and therefore with respect to its infallibility in deciding questions which belong to dogma or to morals, he must know that the Church cannot permit errors which it has carefully considered, judged, and condemned to be again brought under discussion. This, too, is what has already been made known by our Letters, (viz., The Letters Apostolic of September i:t, 18C8, addressed "To all Protestants and other non-Cirtholics.'') For, when we said, "it can not bo denied or doubted that Jesus Clirist Himftelf, in order that ho might apply to all generations of men the fruits of His redemp tion, built here on earth upon rotor His only Church that is, tho onejj holy, Catholic and apostolic Church, and gave to him all power that was necessary for preserving whole and inviolate the deposit of faith, and lor delivering the same faith to all peoples, and tribes, and nations," we therefore signified that tho pri macy both of honor and of jurisdiction, w hich was coi f erred upon Peter and his successors by tho Founder of tho Church, is placed be yond tho hazard of disputation. This, indeed, is tho hinge upon which tho wholo question between Catholics and all who dissent from them turns, and from this dissent, as from a fountain, all the errors of non-Catholics flow. "For inasmuch ' as such bodies of mon are dottitute of that living and divinely-established authority which teaches mankind espe cially (ho things of faith and the rule of murals, and which also directs and goveni3 them in whatever relates to eternal salvation, so these same bodies of men have ever varied in their teaching, aud their change and inr-tnbility never cense. If, therefore, your inquirer will consider either tho opi nion which is held by tho Church as to tho infallibility of its judgment in defining what ever belongs to faith or morals, or what wo ourselves have written respecting tho pri macy and teaching authority of Peter, he will at ence perceive that no room can be given at the Council for the defense of errors which have already been condemned, and that wo could not havo invited non-Catholics to a dis cussion, but have only urged them "to avail themselves of the opportunity afforded by this Council, in which the Catholic Church, to which their forefathers belonged, gives a new proof of its close unity and invincible vitality, and to satisfy tho wants of their souls by withdrawing from a stato in which they cannot bo sure of their salvation." If, by tho inspiration of Divine grace, they shall seek God with their wholo heart, they will easily cast away all preconceived and adverse opin ions, and, laying nsido all desire of disputa tion, they will return to the Father fror.4 whom they havo long unhappily gono astray. Wo, on our part, will- joyfully run to meet them; and, embracing thorn with a father's charity, wo shall rejoice, aud tho Church will rejoico with us, that our children who wero dead have come to life again, and that they who were lost have been found. This indeed we earnestly ask of God; and do you, venera ble brother, join your prayers to ours. In tho meanwhile, as a token of tho Divino favor and of our own especial bcnovolence, we most lovingly give to you and to your dioceso our Apostolic blessing.
