It has long b?en a favor. Me idea with the oourts both of France awl Spain? in the latter dating back to the time or the Comle Aranda, while to France the idea was flrsl broached by M. de Blorraa, la 1844, in an official pamphlet published under the aua pteea of M. Guizot, Minister of Foreign Affairs to Louis Philippe and Marshal Soult, President of tho Royal Coun ?it 1 he whole subject is so well set forth in a speech Made by Senator John A. Dlx, on the 26th or January, 1848, lu the Senate or the United State*, that we repub lish the more Important extracts bearing on this nub.oct from aa advance copy of the Senatorial speeches and ?ther addresses of Goneral Dix, now being published by Messrs. Appleion ft Company, of this city. The speech was upon the conduct of the war with Mexico, as to whether we should withdraw our forcca from Mexican soil, leaving ihc subjects of indemnity, boundary and commercial relations to be sett'ed by ftturo negotiation ; or whether we should retain posses ?ion of the torritory we then hold, Including the city of Mexico, until such negotiations had been satisfactorily ?oocluded in a treaty of peace and friendehlp. General Dli was In raror of the latter alternative, and his ar<u ?onts, which will be found at large In the forthcoming volumes, possess la an eminent degree the compactness, fcncision of statement and complete mastery of all tho lacts bearing on his subject, for which the speeches of Amoral Dlx have ever been so conspicuous it is, aowovor, with those portions of his speech which ??fer to the designs of France and Spain -the former ?ore especially? .lor tho foundation or au empire under European protection on the ruins of the Mexican repub Mc, thit wo have now to deal; and tho extracts which wo ?ow proceed to give will be found to posioss the highest historical interest.

Great Britain, the United States and the states of ?panish or ik in; and he dec'.ar? that it lufrngai to France "to proUet, l.y the aulhniy of her name, the inde pendence of statu, and the equilibrium of the great political Jbrttitn America." To this declaration I have thought Lsotout cm place.

Psn itor Dlx here glvos an elaborate review of the jrowtb of the doctrine of "Intervontlon to maintain "tho balance of power," showing It to be of essentially modern origin, auu productive, in every Instance, of worse evils ?hun th se which It was called In to remedy. lie takes fround, also, that such justified Ion as cr.n bo advanced (tor tho "balance of power" theory pertains "rigidly and ??o'.usively to states within the Same circle of political station It is only by neighbors, for the protection of ?elghbors ngainst neighbors, that It cad, oven npon tho broadest principles, be nghtruliy employed. When it Iraverses oceuns, and looks to the regulation of the politic .1 concerns of other continents, it becomes a glgan Uo assumption, which, for the independence of nations, fcr the Interests of humanity, for the tranquillity of the Old iVorld and the New, should bo significantly repelled." as an examplo of tho abuses to which roreign interven Moo invariably leads, we cite tho following pa. -&ge:?

Thus, though the dismemberment and abaorptinu of Mexico by the United State* are regarded by M. da Mo "rM *? praiarable to tba commercial monopoly and tbe "apecles ef political sovereignty," a* he danomloitea it, which England haa exercisod In that country, the first object of France, according to htm, should be a recon struction of monarchy in Mexico, wUh a foreign prince on the throne, and fail prim e from so uie branch of the Hour km family. The opinions contained in this book are nut put forth u the mere ?peculations of * private person. They are the opinions of an ayent of the government; the publication it made by order of the king, and under the auspices of hit two chief m.nisLrs.and so stated in the title jmgi. I do not mean to bold the government of FrAiice responsible for all the oplnlona contuined In that work : bet can wo believe that those X have quotod, conccrning as they do ao grave a subjoct as tbe international rotations of France with Mexico, aud of Mexico with tbe United States, would have been put forth without modification under auch high official sanctions If they had be?m viewed with positive disfavor? it appears to me tlmt we are cou atraluod to believe them, like the dodaration of M. Ouizot, though certainly to a very Inferior extent, as P"8sesHiBR au o ncial character which wo are not at llb ert> wholly to disregard, when we consider the ono in counoction with tbo other. And uow, Fir, 1 ask, do these opiulous aud declarations, especially when we look to tbo open and Uiroct Inter ference or Grent Uritain and France, by (oroe of arms in the domestic afairs of aorno or tbo South American re publics within tue last two years, furnish a mat ground of apprehension, If wt should retire from Mexico without a treaty aud us eucmie*, that It might become a theatre for tbe exorcise of iniluonoes of a most unfriendly charac ter to us? the aid of th? monarchical txtrty in Mxxeo, vould thsre not be danger that the avowed of establishing a throne might be realiidf The chances of i pen interposition are umpi-ttionably diminished by the resuiu of the war; but I um constrained to bclievo the cbtuic.ea of secret in terfereuce are increased by tho avidity inrivuied to ua for territorial cxtousion. Ought not this dauger Vo iuQucoce to some oxtent.our own conduct, at least bo far us to drt ?iijido us from atandoulny, uutil a better prospect of a durable peace atiall exist , the advantage we liave gMnod as belllgereuta!' Wo know a great majority of the l!e*|. can people arc radically averse to any other than a re. pubi.oan form of government , bat we know also the prouot.o?a of a people among whom anarchy reigoa tri umphant t" seek any refngo which promise! the restora tion of trauquilllty tud social order. ' In a foot note at this point we ilnd a statement that the day alter this i>i>eech was delivered Senator Dl* received rrotn a friend in New York a translation from a speech delivered to the Cortes of Sjrain on the 1st of December, 1847 , by Senor Oltuoga, a man of distinction, an i supposed to be the tame individual who was, a few yean since, first minister of th'rrown. Iiy Wi* speech U appears that, as rrcerahj as 1M?, a year after H. Guitot's declaration was maile, and two years after M. de Mofras' book was pub luh*l, large sums wre expended by Spain for the purjros* of establishing a monarchy in Mexico , and ?/ placing a Spanish prince on the throne. The close connection of the govern mtnki of Prance and Spain, by the marriare of the OiL\etrf Montpensier, the son of Louis Philippe, to the suter of Queen Isabella, gives additional importance to these developmin's:? Ao one, ti'her on this floor or elsewhere, can (lenu that the proj,xt ha* b :en entertained of establishing a monarcnu vn Mtxico, and to ; Iocs a Spanish prince on the throne. Thli projoct conceived in the time of the Conde Arandcs would hare saved our coleni-s from the sad fa'e L\ev have suffered; but, brought forward on this occasion, it was tbe moat absurd idea that oould bavo been concalvod. But we have not only to deplore having excltod political animosities and the ooneequencea this has produced in that country; we have alao to lament the mouey lost and thrown away upon Mexican soli. And In order that the Cortes may uot believe 1 am about to make accusations of ao grave a character without poaaeaalng proors to cor roborate them, / now hold in my hand a itaJem-mt of the sums expended and drawn from the tieeuury in Havana, in th - year 164?l, tig>:ed by the Senor Navarro at auditor, and Muffica as tre.isurer. In this statement there is an item which says ? ? 'I'aid bills of exchange remitted by the Minis ter I'lenipoientiary of her Majisty in Mexico lor maUert btlunuiny to the service, $100, <V>0." Rut much groater than this was tbo authority our Minister la Moxlco posso?sed for disposing or the public funds. I de not know whether ho ba? made use of It. I do not even know bis name. I Fuppose he will employ them w ith scrupulous hooesty; twt are the Sjranish people so b<-vntifully tupp'ied wih mill tin* that thru can ajFord to send 'hem to the Sew iVorlg for the purpKtt of sustaining political intrigues in that dis t iht rejionf Senator Dix wound op ibis branch of his speech on the Mexican question by tho following a.guiflrant remarks, which are even mere applicable and suggestive to-day than they were at the p?rlod of their delivery. They have tho true prophetic character which belongs to all oorroct enunciations of a great national principle ? Mr. rre?ldciit, any attempt by a Furopean Tower to Interpose in tho aflalre of Mexico, eitbor to OFtabllsb a monarchy or to ma.utaln, In tt.e language of M. Uuiaut, ?'the equilibrium of the great political forcos in America," would be Hie aigual lor a war far more Important lu its couFoqi. em-os and inscrutable In Ita issues than tbia.

Tbe public opinion of tbe country wou d compel us to resist It We are committed by the moat formal declarations, llrst made by ('resident Monroe, la 181i3, and reeled by the preseiiL chief magistrate of tbe Union We have pr<? tested, in the moat solemn manner, awalnst any further colonization by Frropean Powers on this continent. We have protested agalcat any Interference in tbe political concerns or tbe Indepei dent States In this hemisphere. A protest, it is true, does not Imply tlat the ground it assumes is to be maintained at ail hazards, and, if ncces. aary, hy foree or arms. Oreat Britain protested against tbe interference of 1- ranee In the aflairs of Hpain in 1823: sue has more recently protested agutcst the absorption of t ruc"W hy Austria as a violation or the political order oi ? uropo, settled at Vienna by the allied sovereigns, and again t tbe Monti eosler marriage an a violation of the troatv of Utrecht ; but I do not remember that in either easo she did anything moretbao to proclaim to the world berdls. seut from tho acts against which she entarou ber protest. It has always seemed to mo to be unwlso in a government to put forth tuanlfe'toes with1 ut belug prepared to main tain thein by acts, or to make deuaratimis ol abstract principlo until me occasion has arrived lor enlorcing them. Tlie declarations of a President having n- power to mako war without a vote of (Engross, or even to em ploy the mllltsry force of tbo country except to deiend our owu territory, is very different irom the proieat of a sovereign holding tbe jsmhk of peace and war ib bis own hands Hut the fo raw may not be lean aiicctuai when they are sustained, aa 1 bollove those ot Presidents Moo r? e aud I'olk are.

If any such lo. lerposition as ibat to which I have referred thould tako place, resistance on our part would inevitably follow and we should be? me involved in controversies of which no man could foresee tbe end.

To-day tho enemy were discovered eroding a com manding battery nt a po int about one alio northeast of tho position at lleop Bottom, Irora which an anOIadl'.ig tiro could be delivered to tbe gunboats, the pontoon bridge and the headquarters of the commanding general. It wag necessary to instantly dislodge tho eneroy from this position, which would also bear heavily upon the line of lntrenchments, and hold it ourselves. Two hun dred and fifty men from the Ninth Malno Volunteers, nndor Lieutenant Colonel Hill, were sent out to accom. plish the undertaking. Presently tho e;:omy were driven, aud a lieutenant and threo men, of tbe Twenty eighth North Carolina, were brought In prisoners, and I am confident we shall hold the position, though It ma? cost ub a day or two of strict attention. A CAPTCRB, Sergeant J. P. Glean , of Company n, Thirty-seventh North Carolina, was captured this morning and brought in. Upon bis examination, be was defiant and perversely rebel. He had tbe roll of bis company with him, which numbered upwards of seventy-three men, Including the absentees. He seemed pleased when be was told taat wo did not put our deserters la the front, and that we treated prisoners of war with somo humanity and con sideration. IflU FMKRT.

There ia bo change In tbe situation, and no indication of any immediate hostilities on the part of Grant. Tbe weather Is warm aud sultry. Thero was a heavy rain yesterday refreshed everything. Tbe report of Grant's death Is contradicted by doser ters who ontered our lines yesterday. There Is the usual skirmishing and cannonading. Nothing of Interest Trampjrtng Before Petersburg ? Ft ve Thousand Itorseo Captured by the Raiders In Maryland. [From the Richmond Kxamluer, July 20.) Yesterday was a quiet day. Thero was no booml'-g of cannon, n" heavy masses of smoke on the southern hori zon, and no exciting ruovrs from any quarter. Theiact that the llags or tho Ysokec shipping In James river were at half maul on Monday caused many to give credit to tbe report of Grant'* do- lb, aiid this topio and tho removal of General Joseph 1.

Though no oue believod his doath would bo ?f any great betiCiit to us. yet every one would havo been Rlad., on gsneral principles, to have bocn assured of bis death. Too Yankee* think much of blm. and that la sufficient to make us rejoice over anv misfortune that might befall him. Wo fear, however, that the report Is too good to be true.

If Grant i<t not dead, be might as well bo for anything Ibat h> Is doing.
