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.

Pope J'im IX to our Yt ncrabh Brother
Henry I.o'irarrf, Archbuhop of Wtrtminstcr:
Venerable P.rolber, Health and tho Apostolic
Messing. 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.
Given at St. Peter's, in Rome, this 4th day
of September, 1S(,.)) jn tho twenty-fourth
