Hut however profoundly ho disapproved of
Sowar l's curse, Qi_al had no douro to criticise or

genuine admiration for many points in Sear .rd's
char?"tor as well as for his public services. On

plan.ttio i I, calle I for, I will be Ria loren of the uae of
that expression.
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.
Nevertheless the lena!tura ot tho ft SB OB and ths
downfall ot Maxi uiiiau we.-.- doubt'oso acceler?
ated by tho urgency of iii.mt au I tue knowle lg*.

The French Vlinistor to tho Uti ito I States, tha
Marquis de Mombo.on, was married to au A. aeri

to his master. Grant look gool care t'.iat tho

up the subject often ami to be explicit ia expressing
