Mexican News;
New York, Dec. 30.?The World's
Washington special containg the fol
lowing :.
Advices from the city of Mexico con
tain some very interesting statements
with reference to the treaty entered
into by France, Austria, Italv, Spain
and England to guarantee Maximilian's
throne. It is now alleged that this
treaty was signed some sixteen months
since, before the war for the Union was
closed and when the opinion was uni
versally held abroad that the rebellion
would be successful. The guarantee of
the integrity of Maximilian's empire,
however, remains, though it has not
been deemed prudent to make it known
up to this time. Recent events, espe
cially the diplomatic correspondence
since the close of the war, has made it,
in the opinion of the upholders of Max
imilian's authority, desirable that the
text of the treaty should be given to the
world. It is understood that the next
mail from the city of Mexico will bring
the text of this treaty, which will be
published in the Diario, the official
organ of Maximilian, at the Mexican
capital.
The advices from that quarter also
state that Maximilian and his friends
entertain no apprehension respecting
the permanence of his empire. In ad
dition to the guaiintee of the western
powers there are Targe material inter
ests at stake. One company, a French
one, is building a road from the city
of Mexico to the Pacific Coast; while
another company, an English one, is
building a road from Vera Cruz to the
city of Mexico. Maximilian's suppor
ters boast that these two roads will be
completed before our Pacific road, and
that it will secure a good deal of the
traffic of the East Indies and Eastern
Asia, which we hope to manopolize by
the building of the railroad to the Pa
cific. There are mining companies,
manufacturing associations, ana other
large enterprises on foot, both in Eng
land and France, who have claims on
their respective governments which will
induce them to insure the permanence
of the Mexican Empire.
Destitution?Distribution of Present*.
New York, Dec. 30.?The Tribune's
special says:
General Howard has just received a
report from the Assistant Commissioner
of the Freedmen's Bureau for the State
of Arkansas, in which he states that
the number of destitute white and
colored people at present dependent
upon the Government at Littlo Rock is
one hundred, of which number a ma
jority are children. He further states
that considerable suffering among them
is experienced, owing to his inability to
supply them with fiill rations.
The Secretary of State yesterday
presented each clerk of that Depart
ment with a port folio.
The Timos* Washington special says:
The trial of Gee,for{the maltreatment
of Union prisoners, which was began
at Raleigh, has been removed to Salis
bury.
A. D. Richardson and Jas. Brown,
correspondents of the New York Tri
bune, and W. E. Davis, correspondent
ot the Cincinnati Gazette, have been
summoned by the Government as
witnesses.
The President is so well satisfied with

ed upon a -further reduction of the

New York, Dec. 30.?Tho Delta Phi
Fraternity has been for several days
f>ast holding ' its annual convention
n this city. The attendance from all
the northern chapters was large, and
measures were taken to give the most
cordial assistance in response to appli
cations for the rehabilitation of the
southeru chapters in such of their col
leges as are again in operation. Last
evening an oration was delivered be
fore the Fraternity and their friends at

Large numbers of the speeches of
Sumner and Raymond on reconstruc
tion, have been ordered on |private sub
scription. Seventeen thousand copies

are already struck off for distribution.
The Fenians.
New York, Deo. 30.?The Times says:
Both of the Fenian leaders are still bu
sy receiving letters from their respec
tive adherents, and issuing voluminous
replies thereto. The Roberts men en
tertain no doubt that there will be a
Congress of delegates at Clinton Hall
next week, but they alledge that not
withstanding many honest Fenians
may attend to ascertain precisely what
Col. O'Mahony proposes to do, the
convontidn will yet be substantially a
fraud.
Letters have been received from
Boston and elsewhere, which allege
that the O'Mahony men have procured
the publication of spurious reports
representing certain Circles to have de
clared for the Union Square Republic
that have actually declared for the
President. O'Mahony is a stumbling
block in the way of the Fenians pro
gress.
The Trial or J?ff Davis.
New York, Dec. 80.?The President
will send in a message on tho assem
blage of Congress in reply to a resolu
tion of the House, stating the reason?
why Jeff Davis has not been tried. In
snrotance it will be the same as con
tat nod in his first message. He elab
orates upon the matter somewhat, by
showing that he has already opposed
bis trial by a military commission and
gives his reasons therefor. As soon as
the necessary legislation is completed
by Congress for the holding of a United
States Court in Richmond the trial will
be immediately proceeded with.
Mexican Talk.
New York, Dec. 30.?The French
Minister flatly oontradicts the report
that Maximilian is going to leave Mex
ico: He has advices of recent date in
dicating that Maximilian is stronger
than ever with the people, and that in a
short time everything will be in a most
satisfactory condition for the stability
of the pretended empire.
New York, Dec. 30.?Private advices
state that but fourteen of the crew of

out, and there is no immediate prospect
of their agreeing upon a Verdict.
More Mexican Gowlp.
New York, Dec. 30.?The Washing
ton special, oorrespondencesaya:
The statement with reference to the
exact meaning of the reiterated ru
mor concerning the withdrawal of the
French troops from Mexico, will be like
ly to receive official: confirmation in a
few days. When those rumors first ap
peared they came originally from
France. There was a condition attend
ing their withdrawal, and this condi
tion was an assurance from the Gov
ernment to Napoleon, that his Empire
and the Emperor of Mexico should not
be disturbed. Report says the pledge
has been given by our Government that
no interference will be allowed. The
reason of the administration guaran
teeing the non-interference is no doubt
the result of a belief that they labored
under, that they will be able to make
short work of Maximilian in case the
French bayonets are withdrawn. But
we should not be too sure. Maximilian
will still have a goodly number of Aus
trian and Belgians troops to All back
upon, and beside these, ne has a bontin
gent of 2000 men to draw upon yearly,
for several years to come. With these
he may, the United States pursuing a
'?stand off" policy, bp able to establish
his sway, and if he does, there will be
no other course but to recognize him.
The Government is committed in the
diplomalic correspondence to the re
cognition, when it is shown that the
Mexican people have accepted the new
order of things, and Louis Napoleon
counts confidently on the recognition
taking place. 1
Wahhinoton. Dec. 30.?It appears
from the official announcement that the
people of North Carolina have declared

at the Fortress on Thursday of this

will probably remain at Fortress Mon
roe for some time. It is supposed that

husband paroled.

Governor Anderoou-s Miamo.
Cincinnati, Dec. SI.?The Ohio legis
lature assembles to-morrow. Governor
Anderson's message^ u Tory lengthy
and devoted nrinnlnnllwtnr
lie ,.t
tion.
The institutions of the State are repn
sented to be in a flourishing condition.
The total receipts of the State from all
sources during the fiscal year were $13,
190,000, against $8,600,000 in 1864. The
total disbursements were $12,400,000,
against $6,600,000 in 1861. The total
funded debt of the State is $12,900,000,
again9t $13,500,000 in 1864, showing a
diminution of $500,000. The Governor
devotes considerable space to the rail
roads of the State, which have become
of immense value to the stockholders
and the people of the State. He advo
cates some legislation for the protection
of the lives and property and other
rights of the people from the encroach
ments of those] powerful agents. He
advor?ates a reduction of the State mili
tia tax and a modification of the en
rollment process.
In speaking of the detention of Ohio
volunteers in the field, the Governor
says it was no part of the intention or
expectation that these noble patriots
volunteering to fight the war for the
Union were to be detained as a police
guard to oversee political reforms in the
South, whether as to whites or blacks,
still less to be marched to the Rio
Grande in order to either men
ace or assault Maximilian or any other
despotism. The despot they engaged
ana suppressed was Jeff. Davis the
traitor, and he has been safely and
properly cased. He says since entering
upon the discharge of his duties as
Governor, the Ohio troops have been
reduced to six regiments, and thosJare
all mainly serving on the Rio Grande
whore there is no rebellion to suppress.
The Governor argues at some length
against the principle of the Monroe
doctrine, and interference in Mexican
affairs. He says what tho Monroe doc
trine exactly is, we have never agreed
among ourselves; its views to this
day aro unspecified; Mexico has
never been or can never be a republic
unless her people will accommodate
us to be born ugain and of entirely
different parentage. She, as well
as all her sister republics of South
America, have been from tho begin
ning uninterruptedly a most vio
lent, bloody, incendiary anarchy. She
has continually, as in regard to all na
tions with which she has held commu
nication, ruthlessly oppressed her own
people and (government and has brought
disgrace alike upon the sacred nime of
republican liberty and human nature.
The Governor is opposed to going to,
war with France or to menaco and j
bully her in behalf of Mexico.
Hew York Fraud*.
New York, Dec. 30.?A communica
tion was handed to the board of Alder
men this morning, from D. R. R.
Bradford, late public administrator,
stating that his annual report for 1865
would show a deficit of $24,055 in that
offico.and confessing that the amount
had been improperly used by him
while holding the office, and was lost
in stock speculation in Wall street. He
says that no one but himself knew that
he had become improperly possessed of
funds, or derived in any manner, any
advantage from embezzlement. He
says he has assigned all his effects, to
gether with the property of his wife, to
a trustee, to pay, first his bondsmen,
tho balance to be paid to tho city to
wards liquidating the deficiency over
the bond, which will appear upon settle
ment of nis accounts.

tors. When the clerk asked, "whathave
you flow to say why judgment should

tence as mentioned.
