We remeiubf r a timo, rot many years a.uo, when nearly all that thi bulk of the Ameri can people kotw of Franco b id bem learned from English sources, where the poison and rancor of national hatred growinar out of Napoleon's course intensified a feeling for the origin of which we have to ro back to t!;9 days of the conqueror. Litfut upou a subject 8J black as il was thus painted s'.owly bro'e, and only altt-r the Franco German war, when, to the surprise of the world and the aniaz:ruent of England as well as Ger many, the French prompt.y paid the war in demnify winch Bismarck, with cold blooded cruelly, imposed in the hope of accomplinh iijf national ruin on'ytnen was it made known how thiit'ly beyonl other peoples the French people are, Low far-reachiuj? a.-, traders, how ekilltd as manufacturers, aud how thoroughly economical and philo sophic in thpir ways of ltfe end liTini?. The scales of an inexcusable ignorance fell from the eyes of all civilized peopl.s, and the Americans revised their cpmion of ft people whom they supposed were wholly taken up with opera bovffe, the demi nionde, and the Jardia ilabile, whose religion wai a cloak to conceal practices more bhameletsa than tbo) of the Romans when thu empire was tottenn? to its fall, whose wit was for the most part fa iil-concealed cy nicipm directed against the christian church, and whose political system was a c'uao3 of communiem. As the French were thus once held up to the gazi of a world predisposed to the conviction that their country was the m jdern Sodom and Gomorrah, so is the south to-day by certain of trie Republican passes of the north, whose conductors are actuated totrard us by a malice that no amount of ilne writing cau conceal. They seiza upon isola lated crimes and criminals, picture them as phases of our social life, and, forgcttul or the 8luns which under their own noses are reeking with &11 the nameless nastineBses of the villainous quarters of modern cities, in sist thut we ar3 ail alike murderers at heart, if cot ia practice, and that cur country is the one part of the world above all others that ought to be shunued.

'So, sir, I replied; T don't see why you should choose tu's hour of the evenlc whe'i you come up f a per son you don't know to nout lli-e an Apache.'

I looked at their country, covered with pine and oc casionally showing a lean pig. and I thought to my self, 'My God! lid we leave five hundred thousand ot our fating men a- d six hundred million dollars In such a country as this ." " It is evident from this that Senator Jones has been a "constant readt r" of tho Tribune, and that he visited the south with his mind made up to look for the wildneas which a no doubt half intoxicated Texan exemplified and which poor Jones bad previously found in the Absalcm-facod youuj? men of Georgi tnd the Carolinas. From the hour he crossed the Potomac until he sot back to the asphalt pavement of the national capital this civil izd bonanza king from Nevada where the men all sleep with their pistols on, and lynch-law is the rule cculd see noihirg but poor pine land.cut-throats ia embryo and bad cooks, and, strain as he wculd, could hear no other music in the &ir than that rebel yell whose echoes during the war disturbed even tho rest of far-clf Boston. Jones had no time to learn of our industries, as the Tri hune does not care to give us credit for them The three hundred and fifty million dollars of cotton, tobacco, sugar, hemp, rice, naval stores and timbtr which we raise and export every year, and with which we swell the na tional balance sheet these had no charms for Senator Jones, of Nevada. He is a constant reader of the Tfibune, and, as such, he de voted the time he ipent in the south to a verification of the pictures therein painted of a people whose magnanimity was stretched not many years ago, to supporting and voting fcr its founder as worthy the highest office in the gilt of the people, as he was. A PEEP 1STO MEXICO. It is extraordinary, when we reflect upon it, how little the people of the United States knowof Mexico. Many cf them have paced the streets of Taris, London, Edinburp, Ge neva, Amsterdam, Berlin, Vienna and Rome They have crossed the Atlantic, ascended the Rhine, steamed along the Thames, climbed tho Alp3, roamed over glaciers, mounted Vesuvius, stared at women in Paris, at pic' tures in Florence, and at cockneys on the Strand; but few cf them have trod underfoot the cactus of the Mexican plains, or gazed on the smoke of Popocatapetl while iuhaling a cheroot in the halls of the Montezumas. T is true the Americans do toi study Spanish to any great extent but thera must be reason why they neglect a language spoken at their own border, while) they carefully cultivate the French, which is spoken on the other Bide of the Atlantic. We run over to Europe, and with English kinship, French courtesy, German heartiness and Italian graciousness we soon find ourselves as heme. But go into country settled by descendants of the hidalgos aud Cabaieros, is to find ourselves in a differ ent and oppressive atmosphere. The dis covery i3 soon made that amonj; them the Americano is not loved. The Mexicans, in fact, fear him, and despising themselves for fearing him, they hate him because he makes them despise themselves. That we have en croached upon their domains can never be forgiven; that we have made great States where they left great deserts, and have large cities and large farms where they could main tain only a few vacheros, and dig out millions from the veins they had walked over, too in dolent to discover their existence, hat made the Americano mote hateful still. So it is that our people rarely visit Mexico, or take their families to pass the summer there, as they now take them to the Bahama Islands in the gulf. At times there has been talk about what money could be mada in Mexico by trading or wot kin,; her mines, but noth ing important has ever come of it. Money caa be made there, but what safety is there for property amid continual pronunciamentos and revolution, at each of which, some upstart of the moment sends to the. foreign residents to force from them money that shall keep hu fol- t0.Lis ca- The Spanish lueinseives, tu ineir own country, once tno proudest ar.d most powerful in Europe, have lost their old grandeur and energy since they made the das truclion of heretics in Holland their business, rather than the prosperity of their own country. These offspring of theirs have degenerated still further, and are mak ing themselves "a byword among the nations." We have before us the translation of an article in the Mexican MonitJ-Republi-cano, of December 20, I87S, which frankly tells what the Mexicans are to-day, and how they have lost the stamina that made Pizarro an J Corttz discoverers and conquerors. The article opens by stating that evil deeds are so common among them that ic requires some thing of extraordinary magnitude to arouse public attention, then the usual in difference follows in five or six day, and criminals go unpunished and the wronged ones unredressed. "Daily accounts," says the Monitor, "are given of robberies, of murders, accompanied by circumstances more tr l-3 repugnant and monstrous, of cornw fouy.d in a staf - r " Poverty and corruption are making great J strides; it is useless to expect anything of the government; the fountainsot labor are closed; there is little education, the jails are schools of crime, and it appears as if the germs of degradation, debasement, and physical and moral rum are intentionally scattered among the people. While the government openly professes that the end justifies the means, nothing can lie done for improvement, and declamations against the government are as useless as blows struck in the dark. "The audacity of the malefactors will eac'a day be come greater, and we khall give to the world the sad spectacle of a nation powerless to overcame the evil which oppress it." Here we have an inside view of th'? state of things in Mexico that may give fuud for thought. In 1860 the English statesman, lxrd John Russell, in an official dispatch from the foreign office, charged that the Mexican government had neglected to pay its debts for two yeats, while within which priod it had, io six months time, spent thirty million dollars, which, said Lord Russell, "is a shameful breach of faith." Its minister, Zamacoou, was claiming that tr:e government were maintaining order, re organizing the a.liniriMration, introducing economy and res' -i. in ;vace. "Bat," con tinued the Eni;liii iiiii.i-tir, "it is notorious that every one oi i '!.- assertions is directly the reverse of tie tn:i!i. It is well known that life and property are nowhere safe, not even ia the streets of the capital; that the administration is ,-.s . ,irr,.pt and as reckless of any intere? bu f!-ir own personal ad vantage as any thai las heretorore governed in Mexico." Such was and such is the con dition ot Mexico. An envjy from that coun try has for some months traveled in tb.'P, calling upon our people to introduce a tariff favorable to its fcreign trade, and to trade with his people. The misfortune is, it is the Mexican, tariff that wants cbauing, for it is purposely made to discourage business with the fighters and heretics of the Union. r rom Chicago a committee ot mer chants are on their way to Mex ico to see if UD.vthing can be done, and to ascertain whether, by their presence and efforts, they can do anything to neutral ize Mexican prejudice, and to make the people there understand our desire to be in peace with and to trade in a friendly spirit with them at the south of us, as we do with Canada on the north of us. We confess we have little faith in the results. The visit to Cuba a year ago of a similar deputation, in which some of our own citizens took a part, was similar in character and object, and was useless. The Mexicans have not the penetra tion to see that as they must, from the neces sity of the case, have some relations with us, those relations will be either good or bad, and if they determine to keep them bad they, as the weakest, must be the sufferers The increasing degradation of the Mexicans, tneir failure to advance with the progress that marks the present era of the world's his tory, and their inability to act upon great and enlarged principles, and to perform their part as citizens of a great country all point to national decay, termina ting in national death. The strong willed, ingenious, push-ahead descend ants of the Saxons will bpread over the Mexican's land, and millions will dwell in the comforts that a rich soil, a para' disiacal climate, and the appliances of civili zit ion bestow, while the poor degraded des' ceudaut of a nation that once made all En rope tremble, will be driven further south, to bide himself among his fellows there. And unless the troubles his present course is heap ing up for him teach him wisdom, and lege regeneration, he will be driven on and cn as successive generatior s come upon the scene, until his name will be blotted out from the western continent, and his memory be a mere record on the page of history a mournful pao, replefe with warninz against thetiecra' dation oi ignorance, superstition, and vice Our good State has been flagellated tern bly of late. The organs of the bondholders have raised a yell equal to that raised by "the wolf's long howl on Analaka's shore." Our State is branded with the disgrace of re pudiation, and a ceaseless tirade of abuse is poured out upon our people. All the epi thets that were exhausted upon Mississippi nearly forty years ago have been dug up and applied to Tennessee. The Appeal has been called the advocate of high taxes because it favored an honorable compromise a settle ment upon such terms as the creditor and the debtor might agree, instead of open, flagrant, downright repudiation. There is no dishonor in adjusting our liabilities upon such terms as the bondholders may offer, which, it is understood, will be liberal. We are of those who believe that the honor of a State is abova price. The whole framework of society rests upon 'the integrity of the peo ple and their regard for solemn compacts. Without virtue, honesty and justice, a com monwealth cannot expejt to survive. Those who propose to pay nothing on the State debt, or such amount as they may dictate, are planting in cor midst the frightful doc trine of communism. But while we advocate policy of justice to the creditors of the Slate, we must protest against the sweep ing abuse heaped upon our State because she has not promptly paid the interest on her debt. So long as the times were prosperous the people of TenDeBsee were united ia a de termination to pay every dollar of the State debt. Pending the contests for governor in 1S70 and in 1872, not a voice was lifted against the payment of the liabilities of the State. Had Governor Brown favored-a com promise at fifty cents on the dollar, cr squint ed at repudiation, be would have been de feated. He and his competitor, Judge Free man, favored the funding of tho debt, as Virginia did and as eur city has done. In the meantime the hard times set in, and they have grown worse ever since. The rate of taxation necessary to meet the interest on twenty-four millions would have paralyzed industry and iepelle-' from our State both he capital and labor .vbich would have been handicapped by it. The depreciation in the value of properly by ..he money stringency is more than five times the amount of the State debt. The people of Tennessee have suffered the depreciation of their property, but the State debt still remains. Every person that was in debt to the amount of half the value - and has not de- 130 inch State aity, a . bnrden at the honest ous fcr an adjast jr otatg debt. An effort on the part of the legislature, supported by the honest people, would in a shott time place the finances of the State on the road to con valescence and rapid recovery, and this effort should be made at once.
