The correspondent of the National Intelligencer, 'writing from the city of Mexico, says that Maximilian made an "extraordinary speech" there on the 16th ult., the forty-fourth anniversary of Mexican independence, intended undoubtedly as ti warning to tho United States. The writer proceeds to say: If anybody has been under tho impression that Maximilian was about quitting Mexico because he wished to avoid complications with us, he has been grievously mistaken. Wishing to commit himself irrevocably to re? main in Mexico, he said: "No influence in this world can make me waver in my duty; every drop of my blood is Mexican now, and if God sends fresh dangers to threaten our country, you will see mo fight in your ranks for its indepen? dence and integrity. I am willing to die at the foot of our glorious ban? ner, because no human power can wrest from me the trust with which yon endowed me." No more direct menace could be made to the United States. Maxi? milian has gone too far ever to say that lie has been mistaken, and that the Mexican people do not desire imperial institutions. It is evident, from the tenor of advices from Paris, that this determination of Maximilian, as well as the abandonment of the journey of his wife to Belgium, aro the result of direct orders from Na? poleon, who is determined to moot the issue. Maximilian, then, has altered his I mind, and intends to "fight it ont on that line." Mrs. Max. has determined not to go horne to her papa just now; j and, in addition to this, American Consuls in Mexico, it appears, are not known there. They have no standing at tho serene and mighty court. The Intelligencer'& correspondent de? clares that matters aro growing worse instead of bettor in Mexico; that guerillas are on the increase; that new loaders are constantly making their appearance; that they have de? feated the Imperialists on many occa? sions of late; that tho policy of con? ciliation which was at first adopted has been abandoned for one of rigor and harshness, and that iu cons?? quence many terrible acts of cruelty have recently been perpetrated by Government officials, of which the writer gives several particulars and promises more. Thirteen hundred French soldiers have, recently arrived. We are informed also that slavery, under the form of peonage, has just \ been established by an official decree of thc Emperor, and this has been do'i - with especial reference to the encouragement of emigration into thc cotwitry from our Southern States, for the Purpose of enabling tho E:* - peror and Napoleon to erect ?. barri' against the United States. Both >f these personages, tho correspoi Lent says, aro looking forward to trouble with this country in reference to their | pet scheme of founding an empire fn I spite of our favorite "Monroe doc- | trine," and professedly to check-mate the encroachments of the great Kc public upon the divine institution of kingcraft. If all this is true, we shall ere long have business with our plea? sant neighbors of thc province We have had several reports of late to the effect that the indomitable Juarez had shaken Mexican dust from the soles of his feet and quit thc coun? try. He keeps turning again, how? ever, and wt1 rather guess he lias no idea of quitting yet. We guess thc report.-; originate from the pressing desire of Mr. Max. to have him leave, Our Government has not recognized Maximilian or any of his agents. The fact must be deemed highly sig? nificant. What is the Government waiting for if it intends to acknow ledre Max. ? We don't believe it da? s' lo give any countenance to this Au.* usurpation in Mexico, and we 1 ? it will not. Mr. Seward, in his late Auburn speech, made a very pointed and un? mistakable allusion to this Mexican question, from which we quote as fol? lows: With whatever jealousy we may ad? here to our inherited principle of avoiding entangling alliances with foreign nations, the United States must continue to exercise, as always before our civil war they did exercise, a just and beneficent influence in the international conduct of foreign States, particularly those which are near to us on the continent, and which are especially endeared to us by their adoption of republican institutions. [Applause.] The just influence of ours was impaired, as ought to have been apprehended by the American people, when they fell into the distrac? tions of civil war. With the return of peace, it is coming back to us again, in greater strength than ever. I am sure that this important inte rest has not been lost sight of by the P i esident of the United States for a single mo? ment, and I expect that we shall see republican inj^titutions, wherever they have been heretofore established throughout the American continent, speedily vindicated, renewed, and re? invigorated. [Applause.] When I shall sec this progress successfully worked out on thc American conti? nent, I shall then look for the signs of its successful working throughout the other continents. Mr. Seward undoubtedly under? stands the views of the President in reference to this embroglio, and the plainness of the language he has used was probably meant to give the coun? try an iukling of them. When Gen. Forey invaded Mexico at thc head of a French army, Napo? leon, for once in his life, threw off al] disguise and said equivocally that thc United States must not be permitted ? to exercise predominant influence ii: i America. That was when the per J sonage at the Tailleries thought tht ! "Confederacy" un fait accompli. H< did not doubt it for a moment. H< thought Mr. Slidcll's concern wouli establish its independence withou any assistance from him of the Tuil lories, and so he let slip the opportun? moment for aiding Messrs. Slidell S Co. and Messrs. Max. & Co. at tin same time. We think the Austrian will be dis appointed in his expectations o assistance from thc South-if he en tertains any-to aid him in proppinf up a bloody throne that has never ye been established in Mexico or ac knowledged in any proper way by th Mexican people. He is clearly a usurper, without th slightest claims, directly or indirectly to be the governor of the oountr whose people he is engaged in arrest ing, plundering and murdering. We trust the President of th United Slates, in his message to Coi gross, will take finn, dignified Ann riean ground in reference to Max niilian, and that he will maintain, i we cannot doubt he will, the credi the consistency and the tradition honor of the American people. Th petty Austrian despot and his hacke should be made clearly to nnderstai that he cannot be allowed to insult i and <".u- institutions by living Mexico, and that the sooner he leave thc better it -will bc for his health ami comfort. Tlie Mexicans don't want him, evidently. The longer he stays, the more dissatisfied they become. He has not restored peace; and it is manifest that there can be none in Mexico ns long as he remains there. There has been time enough since his entrance into the country to demon? strate this fact beyond all reason:, o doubt. His presence now means v r and only war, and a most barbarous kind of war at that. He has changed his policy of trying to reconcile the Mexican people by mild mon uires, and is showing his Austrian instincts and habits by blood and cruelty. He arrests the most respectable citizens, simply because they are known to be opposed to his remaining in the country, hurries them off to dungeons, or murders them on the spot! Out upon tho usurper.-Louisville Journal. A NOBLE OLD NEGRO.-A refreshing instance of the gratitude of a negro towards his former owner came under our observation yesterday. An old grey-headed veteran, of a ginger? bread color, came into our counting room, and oddressed himself to one of the clerks, said he wished to sub? scribe to the Times for his old mis? tress. While the address was being taken down, we ventured to inquire in what capacity he was employed at home, when the faithful old fellow replied: "Massa, I'se living on old missus' lot. She is mity poor now, but used to be 'fore de conflagration powerful rich. For ten year old missus took care of me, and now she's poor, I'm gwine to take care of her. I knows de proper way to act, if I am a nigger, massa." Such an instance of the fidelity of an old negro who had once been a slave afforded so striking a contrast to the conduct of the majority of worthless characters of that color who, as soon as the evacuation, took themselves off without even doing so much as giving a day's notice to their employers, that we think it worthy of publication. -RicJtmond Timen.
