Thus tbe matter draggo 1 ah. ng fir nearly two years, (irtiit doing everything tn Ins piwerto hasten the result at which ho was aiming, aud Seward imposing < J ran t's measures if uot Ins object, ia every possible way. In coaters atina with journalists ami other leaders anl makers ot opinion .'.mt constantly sought to create a public feeliug in favor of doman hug the withdrawal of the French. I remember ou ono occasion, at a reception given to him at the ITniun League Club in New-York, ho so far deoartod fro a his custom aud did violence to hisarlinarv inclination as to force himself to utter a few words in public, almost a speech, indicating how strongly hu .?aired tho intervention of our Goveruruoat. The couutry, however, did not respond vory ardently to these utterances, and I have no doubt now that Seward's policy was more ia accord with the general sentiment. Tho nation did not fed so keenly as Uraut on the sub? ject, nor did it apprehon 1 tue danger that he saw in delay. Ibero waa a pnvalent belief that Louis Napoleon's only object in Mexico hal been frustrat? ed when Leo surrendered, snd that the French wore certaiu to withdraw if allowed to do so without nnneceasiry humiliation. Indeed, bad tho Nation been Dolled tim majority would probably have endured the es? tablishment of a monarchy iu Mexico rather than engage at that time in another war.
