BOCK ISLAJSTJ, .XXAX2TOXS. Siturlw. December 15. 1S77. The Mexican Imbroglio. Ramon ia th air are or a more war like character than the actual condition of affairs ai, represented in the debates of Congresi, or the action of the military. In the senate, a committee has been ap pointed to investigate oar relations with Mexico, and in the house there has been considerable discussion of the subject in which quite a camber of both northern and southern representatives participated. There was a general disclaimer of a desire on the part of any to go to the length of engaging in war as the proper solution of the difficulties on the Rio Grande. The Texan representatives, as would naturally be the ease, made tho nearest approaoh to a warlike attitude, but even Mr. -Mills of that state, who made the most inflam matory speech of any engaged in the debate, did not go to any greater length than to condemn the proposition to make a new treaty. Efforts have been made in certain quirters to create the impression that the Executive was disposed to press matters to a vigorous conclusion, even to the extent of provoking a collision be tween this country and Mexico. But fair consideration of anything which has as yet emenated from that quarter wil not honestly warrant such conclusions. It is by far more reasonable to believe in the sincerity of the administration protests that it does not entertain such a purpose, than to entertain th e supposition that it does in faot desire a war, and is acting with duplicity and a hostile intent Those wh assume the administration has designs of that character refer to Mr. Blaine's attack on the war-and-annexation party in his last summer's Woodstock speech as significant of that senator's having bad at that early date some specific and certain information upon the subject which the public generally were unacquainted with; and the more recent action of Senator Conkliogio the senate in regard to a committee to investigate the condition of affairs to which we have already alluded is also by some considered as having reference to the same occult species of knowledge, and a desire on the part of the sonator to early forestall any action of the secretary of state which could lead to actual war. Even if there was a Btrong war feeling in some parts of the country, a feeling that a vigorous foreign policy might lead to events which would serve the adm'iLis tration by diverting attention from the dissensions of the President and Senate and turn public attention in the direction of a patriotic- fever for the de fenie of an invaded soil and against the insults of a foreign eneoiy.-still it is more than doubtful, in the face.of all that has beenjmade public, whether either the President or a single member of his cabi net entertain any such wishes; Moreover there is strong grounds for the belief that the executivo ruler of Mexico, Diaz, is not only friendly to this country, but is even desirous of preserving peace. Ho has said ooioially that he is desirous of makioe a treaty with the United States in order to obtain coopera tioo in protection the boundary line. He has already on the border from 5,000 to 7,000 men for the purpose, as alleged, of preserving order. Before these men were sent there, it was claimed by the irrecon cileables that Diaz was unable to check the disorders of which we have recently heard so much said, and now, when the men are there in the performance of their duty, it is giyeu out that their being there is menace of the Mexican government, It is already in evidence before the country that Gen. Ord stated in his testi mony before the congressional committee that Diaz is the best President Mexico has had for many years, and the secretary of war said to the same committee that Diaz is exerting himself to the utmost to pre vent orah across the Texas border, and is most anxious to preserve friendly relations with this government. A striking proof of his good faith is seen in the fact of the payment of the installment of money due the U. S. government almost immediately after his accession to power, and in the face of the complaints about border troubles, something he would not be likely to have done if war with this country was any part of his real intentions. Still further, the second pay ment of $300,000, is now on deposit in a New l'ork bank awaiting the day of pay ment. In various other ways, which might be further stated, Diaz has shown an honest and sincere desire of preserving good feeling and friendly intercourse .with this country, and, so far as faith cun be placed in the acts and professions of Mexican ruler, there is no reason to scriounly doubt the pacific desires of the Mexican government at this time. It is true he gave orders to repel force with force when he beard last spring of Gen Ord's instructions to pursue raiders across the Kii Grande, but this cannot be accounted an insult to our government. for auy country with a spark of imtiooa dignity and self-respect would have re seuted in quite as earnest and forcible manner an invasion of its soil by a hostile foroo from a neighboring country. , It does not appear probable, in the face of the sentiment developed in the house of representatives, -and of no known war like iutention on the part of the executive and his advisers, and from the genera views held by the press of this country against the project, as well as from the poaccful disposition which Diaz has thus far exhibited, that the two countries can at this time be brought into hostile col lisinn, or any war party spring into exist coce wbicb will be formidable in numbers, or powerful enough to control legislatioa There is not yet any apparent necessity of a war, and it is to be hoped peacefu counsels win prevail. isaTBinding of every description done on oioho ngures at Tux Argus bindery AH kinds cf printing cheaper than else where in the three cities.
