Maximilian'* 1)WittutlIce Between Two rhrnntm-I'lir Now Loae, dt<'< [From the London Post (city article), March 29.1 The Mexican loan is understood now to be finally set tled, and chiefly through tbo Intervention of the Emperor Napoleon, who decided to put an end to the negotiations which were golug on with various flrmt whom he fe.ired might make too good a thing of it It was therefore resolved that the loan should be given, on commision, to French nod English bouses of high standing, and a contract was entered into with Mr. George E. Sey mour, as the representative of Messrs. Glyn, Mills & Co., who at once ratified tho arrangement. The loan will be for ?6,000,000 in a 0 per cent slock at 63, and a Paris letter which we have received to day states that generosity as well as justice Mill be shown to the old bondholder* in connection with the airangement. Very powerful combinations are being made for bringing out tho loan with becoming strength, and in Part* it already commands u high premium. As we have before said, the security of the present bondholders is not to bo Interfered witb, whilst due provision will be made for tho payment of dividends during the early period of the new Emperor's reign, whilst the necessary work of bringing things into order is being carriod out. It is understood that both the Emperor of the French and M. Fuuld give a loyal and honorable support to the loan, which will recoivo every support which trance can givo it short of a guarantee Mr. Seymour was eeut for to conduct the ari uugemont, from the confidence inspired m the French government by tlio success which attended his efforts with regard tc Austrian finance lost year, and in acknowledgment o! which be received tho high honor of bolng presented with the Order of the Iron Crown of Ixmibardy. Tho contract was to be fiually signed for the new i-iui)cror,at Mtramar, yesterday, when the Archduke Maximilian was to accept tho Moxican throne and a second correspondent from Paris inlorms us that it was reported ?400.000 was od Saturday forwarded to the Archduke on account of tho loan. (From the London limes, March 31.'] The agent of the International 1' mancial Society, with a large advance, is still in Vienna, awaiting the result uf tbo Archduke's decision. It is now thought the Arch uuke is required by ms brother, the Emperor, not ouly to surrender his couauual right of succession to tho Aus- I trian crown, but the royal und imperial property. (From the London Tost, March 31.) It is understood ihat the Archduke was ready tore nounce tor his descendants their presumptive right tc the Austrian crown, reserving to himself his title to it in case it should revert to him. The Kmperor ot Austria has one sou und < ne daughter. The Archduke Louis is an elder born brother All of tbege must succeed to the throne before it can come to the Archduke Maximilian It is stated thai ihe Kmperor w--.s inclined to supjtort the views of the Archduke but the council ot the impe rial iamity were of a dilVreni opicion. The fact has been signified 10 the i'reucb Cabinet, while one ot the impe rial archdukes has proceeded to M:ramar In connection wttb tb>a aim jr. Napoleon'* Position.
