maximillian s heir.
There u no American man nor woman who
would not bail with pleasure news of the
enforced departure of Maximillian from Mexico.
to which consnmmat.on erents seem slowly
but surely tending. But their gratification
would be as nothing in comparison with the
joy which such intelligence would convey to
one American lady; as she might then hope
lor a speedy re-union with a loved and only
child, from which she is now cruelly separated.
We refer to Mad. Alice Iturbide, (formerly
Miss Green, of Kosedale, near Georgetown.
in this District, now wife of the lineal
successor to the throne of Mexico.) whose son
TJTJU / 'i hr Mnrimilli<in forvr m a??K ,
since. the child being then about two-anil-abalf
year*- old.
As the facts in regard to this matter haye not
been generally understood in tbis country, and
have been the subject of much ignorant, and
more or less intentional misrepresentation, we
propose to brieily review some of the attending
circumstances in this extraordinary case
The child was already a great favorite with
many of the oldest and b>*st families?the loyalist*?
of Mexico. M.tximillian was not. The
adoption of this child, therefore, as his heir
weuld. be concei\ed. be a powerful element
in strengthening his waning cause, and would
etable bim to form a native party friendly to
his interests. Whether the idea originated
with Haxiiuillian or Napoleon is not known,
but it vra- promptly actfd on. Extraordinary
meanbwt re used to get the parents' consent
to par' with their child. The tather steadtartly
persisted in his opposition to the scheme
throughout, but the mctber. overcome by the
promise of a brilliant future tor her son, nrged
by he; husbands brother. (Augnstiu Itur- j
bide.) and others of the family, goaded by the |
intimation that the child would be taken, with
or without her consent, and never dreaming
that the adoption of the intant by the Emperor
would lead to her immediate separation from
it, reluctantly signed a document giving her
coc>-ei.t She thought her child would have a
mother's care: at least until it was old enough
to be sent to Europe to be educated. Imagine
her cons.ternaiion and grief on receiviug. the
dav after her son wa? taken to the palace, an
intimation from official sources that the air of
Mexico was unwholesome for the Itur bide
family, and that a speedy trip to Kurope might
be beneficial to them. The banished lamily at
once prepared to comply with the imperial
mandate, and hurriedly packing up snch
necessary articles as conld be conveniently
transported, started without delay for the sea
coast, the mother almost fTantic. At Puebla
her grief b? am? nnendurable, and determined
to make an effort to recover her child, she
at once returned to the City of Mexico and appealed
to the Lmperor to allow her either to
take bee con. or to live with him at the palace.
The only answer ?be received was a peremptory
order to leave the cmuutry. Almost heartbroken,
the came to the ('nited State* and appealed
to the authorities here, hot in consequence
of her written consent to the Emperor's
adoption of the child, no action could be ta*en.
Resolved to leave no stone antnrneri to accomplish
the one object she had in t tew, she proceeded
at once to Paris to appeal to me- Kreuch
tmperor. She is still m the capital of France,
and has had from Louis Napoleon partial
promises from time to time which have
encouraged her to hope for a reunion with her
<hild at no distant period. Hop* deferred
makes the bsart sick, it is said, and Mm. Itur
Diae caring i<wi an confidence la Napeleon
and m Maximilian, is now aboat to mars to
this country ?ith her object unaccomplished.
The cbiid is well cared lor by Maximilian,
and receives the treatment of a prince. It ha*
a suite of room' assigned to it, and numerous
attendants, and takes an airing every hae diy
i the royal equipage. Americans writing
lrom the city of Mexico describe the little oae
as a bright, intelligent, handsome boy, aboat
three years old. with an unmistakable North
Ammcan-in other words, Yankee?stamp of
featare* and expression. No matter what were
the motives for the adoption of the child, the
net was in ir?elf unobjectionable: but the
banishment of the ltarbide family, and the
t>ei>aration ot mother and infant, were tyrannical
and cruel, and Mrs. ltarbide, who is
nearly allied to many old and prominent
families here and in Maryland, has the entire
yrrpstfcy of this community in her trouble.

OI<b, tbrcaseuf McOban act. Orphan*,

Olia (attracted the jury &a follow*:
TUIHJK OLIK'8 ( hau'.k
Tbio is an action for libel. The suit in
bt ought for thr purpose of recorrnncdaniate*
againct the defendant, for tbe writing or ptib
lirhinf a libellous or sland-rou* paper, affect.DC
injuriously tbe character and reputation
ot tbe plhintiff.
I The publication complained of la set fort*
in tbe plaintiff"* complwat, and tbe offViisire
| and blanderous matter contained in it coautu
. in charging tbe plaintiff* with disloyalty to the
Government and sympathizing with those
I who w ere in arms against the Government for
I lt? destruction.
If you find inch to be the tbe meaning and
intent ot that publication. It ( slanderous aud
libellous in a high degree.
In ascertaining whether the publication
charged i6 libelous you have a right and should
take into consideration the condition of tbe
conntry at tbe time the paper was written.
You will not fail to remember that we were in
the midst of a powerful rebellion?a war waged
on tbe one hand for the dismemberment of tbe
Union and on the other, as 1 bare always supposed.
for its preservation.
Those who engaged in the late rebellion for
>urruuiri>ii>u vi lur uu<riiliurui OJ llir I jriT
of arms were by the Constitution and the laws
guilty of a great crime, and to charge a person
with disloyalty at such time, especially with
sympathizing with persons thus engaged, is
slauderous.
1st. In the first place you will inquire whether
the defendant wrote and published the let.
ter set out in tbe plaintiff"s declaration.
| 2d. Did tbe defendant intend in that letter to
charge tbe plaintiff with being an enemy of bis
Government and iu sympatny with those who
vrt-re attempting to subvert It by force of arm?.
If yon find these two propositions in the atUrinative,
you will pass to the consideration
of another question which the law and tbe
iti* ii> ui nir mw jiITBrnif,
This letter. if written at all, was written to
the A!-sis:ant Secretary of War. The plaintiff
war then in the employment ot that branth of
the executive department of the Government,
and it it claimed that this communication, if
written nt all by (be delendant. wu a privileged
communication, and no matter what
wag its character, or the circumstances attend'
ing it, the defendant cannot be made liable in
I thi< action. The communication is 111 one
sei:se a privileged one?it made in rood taith?
but it at the time he wrote it he did so witbout
prol>able cause, or knowing it to be false, he is
liable.
The great question iu the case is, wa* the
charge of disloyalty. Ac., l?l?e .' aud had the
deieudant at the tiin<? ot writing this letter no
I probable cause for belie\ing the charge he
made to he true I
If the charge was false: if the defendant had
110 reasonable ground, such as an ordinarily
prudent man wonld act upon tor believing it '
t? be true, theu he is liable for damages in this
action.
This action cannot be maintained by show
iii* iiul'i] >uai lur i uni(rj luniiunca in rnis
letter are false. It murf b? shown that they
were not ?.>nl\ fal.?e, but made without probable
cause By probable cause there must be
that iltgre* ot proof which would convince
the nnndof an ordinarily intelligent and prudent
man ot the truth of the fact alleged.
The .!udce proceeded to stale that the burden
of proof to fcliow probable cause w a* upon
the plaintiff, and concluded his charge by ruling
upon a number of prayers of tlie defendant
lor instructions and the jury took the
c:i.?e about II o'clock, and retired to deliberate
on a verdict.
The jury, on the ad journment of the court,
w?*re instructed to render a sealed verdict.
The jury agreed upon a verdict about I o'clock.
a1 that hour they left their room. Ot cnur*?*
it is not known yet. and will not be uutil the

McDevitt arrived in Washington this morning,
with the money and his prisoner, and delivered
him to Superintendent Richards for a
hearing this afternoon. The prisoner has confessed
