The Courae of Debute In the New Parlia ment-How Minister* Treat "Interpella tions"?The Coitilnit Cabinet C-hKiitfes and Condition ol Palltlcal Parlies. 4c. Florkhcb, Jan. 20,1867. While the French are chuckling over, or half mourn fully, half ludicrously debating the points of the doubtful concessions made them In the almost impracticable right of interpellation so gravely gra ciously accorded them by their Emperor, the Italian Deputies are in the full-fledged enjoyment and practice of theira, and much good it seems to do them. ' They in tend to interpellate Stgnor Svialoja, the Minister of Finance; but on the day set apart for the Interpellation, he Is uot in bis customary seat, so the tn terpellalors elicit nothing more significant than the yawns of the reporters in the. galleries, who spend their time, when not yawning or taking their sparse notes, between looking ap at the clock c (1 cursing the stupidity and long-windeduoan or \ >>iby Doputloe, who persist m keeping tb'-m Y a their slender dinners by asking question ? ?> * ... ,ng objec tions, with nobody to answer or tnak roply. When It comes Baron Ricasoii's turn to ? 1 interpellated," he is away. His seoretare, fi ? -r*t Signor Celestina Bianehl, could well fill hi': . u he were there, but lie is not; ao the worthy ' ,. alios, Instead of satisfactory replies to their >1 ?nUs, have nothing but the satisfaction of Infer- :ig mat they are unanswerable. I; may seem lDoredible that for two or three days this week tliore was no session of the Chamber of Deputies, for the roason that there was no work prepaiod lor their discussion. This Is not, as some tngouu..u? beings at a distance might suppose, owing to the over assiduity and luipaiien'-o of the members of the ctvifrn to get through their work, and thus, in artisan's parlance, having "worked themselves out of a job." Ministers from the beginning have takeu things re markably easy, from th? nay of the opening (15ih De camber) to the prv-eut, having meanwhile taken a for mal limited mccss of ten days, and many others of shoriw duratl m, as suited tli?ir own Individual con venience or pleasure. So messieurs la Minulrsj cannot very well complain of iliem for pressing too hard upon them, and so the Cpini si, an n/ticirtn (somi-cfllcial) journal, seems to think, In a long ariicle calling the Ministry to account, in which it accuses the members of everything hut a livlty or aitenlion to their duties and the interests of tho country. Indcod, so severe and un stinted are the terms of reprehension in ibis article that one .? templed to believe there is some foundation In the rumor atioat for several days in regard to a change of Ministry. "If there is care and energy at tbo li?ad,'' says this lecturing article, "Ibero is likely to bo care and ouergy in the membors; but if these are lacking at tho head it U not reasonable to suppose those who are do pendent upon it will be laborious. The example should descend from above. And when we hear It lamented that there sru too many em ployes, o(heals (impreQati), and that those many do little (that's so), we are tempted to ask If those who have the guiding of them do any better, and if tbey really know how to direct tbetr labor. There is a su preme necessity of Italy giviug greater impulse to all the moving parte of tlie government machine, otherwise all the aflalrs of the State will be compromised and paralysed by an invading atony." "Can It be con ceived," continues the Opinion, "that there are minist ers who do not sec their chiefs of division, or do uot ro celve or confer with them ouee a month ?" But to re turn to our Deputbis. What m ist have been their foot ings while they were waitiog ss above for papers to turn up on the President's dosk to fnrnish them ma terial for debate and action upon seeing some of tho moat Important stale documents published in a favorite Cvemrurnt journal before tbey were presented to tho m r consideration f In the number was Bctaloju'r. new project of ral-lng the wind. Some of tho members carry th. Ir reprobation of this act of the government In putting its acts in the papers before presenting them to them so far as to oppose the wholo of the SciRlaJa project, on the ground of its being an un derhand. unwarrantable and unnecessary act. Tbe op position papers, true to their code, oppose it. How would they be opposll'on if they did not? All this will not amount to anything mors than an expression of sen t intent. The thing is cut. dried, and as good as done. And the Church party, what does it say? Nothing. I suppose 1 should say -crnethlug about the Fait. That whioh is more especially local In regard to it is tne for mation of a Phil-Hellenic Society, comprising among its members-ami promoters the naraet of mauy of the no bility, Senators and Deputies. Asyou know, tbe steam ship Principe Tominaso urtair Is all wound up ulcoly. The government vessels, there for the purposo have been duly saluted in Turkish waters, and the amount of in demnity to be paid tbe owners of the steamer is being amicably arranged tnrojgli the intermediation of the British consul at Constantinople. The various signs ccntlrmaiory of the for some time rumored alliance between Austria, trance and Italy, compacts with Rome and the probable early release of Persano, all tend to put tbe opposition into a very bad, or appuienlly bad, liunvr. duo vols on the charge of Peraano's cowardice?sixty for guilty and seventy-one for not guilty?isnotovn ( to bitn. The worthy rooatorn, according to present appearances, are willing to let the matter rest eo, end moreover destroy all evi dence of what has gone heiore.

The Eng. ttsb press has been occupied for some time with volum inous correspondence on the subject, aud great interest In the case U folt by all who make the history of aristo cratic families their particular study. Although many vcraions of this extraordinary atory havebesn givon to the publio, I have not aeen, aa yat, anything like a true and correct narrative in the English press. As I happen to bo acq minted with the principal characttr, and know nil the Incidents In the drains, I am enabled to aflbrd y oar readers one more ilidatration of the maxim that truth is stranger than fiction. Before proceeding with the story, however, it is necessary to clear the ground by a short sketch of family history. The family of Tichborae, or as it was formorly called Pe Itcbenborne, is one of the oldest In England. In the county of Hants the bearer of the title and the possessor of the estates of that name was respected for centuries. The family was notable in Hampshire before the Con quest, and ever since, In spite of revolutions and in trigues, has Inherited the same land. Similar posses sions in other ports of the country?including a property in Galway, Ireland?have beon added to tbe original es tates, lrom time to time; but tbeee changes took place so long ago that the latest of them is old In history. From the time or Henry 1L till 1820 tbe principal repre sentatives of the family were simple knights. But when Queen Elisabeth died, Sir John de Tlchborne, Knight, who was at the tlmo Sheriff of Southampton, aotlug on hta own respond blllty, went directly to Winchester, and thore proclaimed James VL of Scotland bor successor, aa King James I. of England. After the monarch had beon settled on his throne one of his fleet acts was to reward bis Hampshire champh>n, nud Sir John de Tlchborne was created a baronet id bis four sons were knighted. He was also mail custodian of the Castle of Winchester, which war ?? ' led on htm in fee form. Thi* hnrouotcy liu com* down to hla de-can Janta In ?? present day, and 8ir Alfred Doughty Tiehborne, Baronet, who dlod a short tlma since, was the last bearer of the hereditary dignity. The career of this gentleman waa a wild and reckless one, and the English pubilo recollect seeing fats name In the Court of Bankruptcy. His net Income??76,000 per annum?was not sufficient, and lu faot Sir Alfred waa terribly embarrassed. One of hla first acta In succeeding to the title and estates was to purchase a yacht at a cost of $70,000 and five hun dred stand of the beat breech-loading rifles for his own private shooting. The estates became heavily mort gaged; bat the Jews who lent the money felt perfoctly secure. On Christmas day last, however, there landed In England, from the steamship Cella, from New Tork to London, a gentleman whose presence appears to have had tho effect of a falling bomb-ihcll among Jews and GonttlM who lent money on the Tiehborne ostates?no other, in fact, than the rightful owner to the estate, Sir Roger Charles Tiehborne, Baronet. Never before In the family history has so strange an Incident been known. The official books record that Sir James Francis Doughty Tiehborne, Baronet, of Tiehborne. Hants, born in 1784, succeeded his brother as tenth Baronet In 1353. He had at this time two sons, via., Roger Charles, born tn 1829, and Alfred Jow-ph, born 4th September, 1339, who married Id 1861 Teresa Mary, eldest daughter of Lord Arundell. There were of this family also two .laughters who died. Tims the eldest son and heir, Roger Charles, was. when his father became baronet In 1853, twenty-four years of-age, and hie younger brother, Alfred Joseph, was fourteou years old In 1862 the father died, but In tho meantime tho belr, who hud been subject from childhood to nervous attacks, took his deparlnre from England, with the Intention of visiting America and tho colonics at the antipodes. !-'omo time before the death of Sir James nows cajnn to this coun try that the ship in which Roger Cbafles took his de parture to Australia was lost o(T Cape Horn, with all on board. The sad intelligence was confirmed by the fact that nothing was afterwards heard of the lost belr. Ho the younger brother took the title and estates. How ever, he had do son to succeed him, and when he died, a few months ago, It waa thought by maqy that the title would ba extinguished In that branch. But bis lady bore a poatbumoue child, and great rejoicing was made when the iufant was formally declared heir of the line. But now comet the extraordinary part of the story. Although ths ship (the Kdtnburg, I believe) tn which Roger Charles sailed, was lost, with nearly all on board, he himself, with fonr others, rnauagod to scramble into a boat, and. among the Icebergs of the Cape, for four dreary days and nights lisld on to existence. Picked up by s vessel bound to Valparaiso. Roger Charles land'd In South America, hla sole properly being a suit of clothes and a borrowed hat A good Samaritan, named Thomas de Castro, a Spaniard, took compassion on the castaway, and lent him such aid that ba waa enabled to live comfortably, and at the same time acquire a knowledge of the people among whom be waa ao atrangaly thrown. He wandered among the different States for two year*; but when at Callan he made the acquaintance of a sea captain In the Australian trade, be nccepted a berth as ship's steward, and In that capacity lauded in Melbourne, Australia. In grateful remembrance of his Spanish friend he assumed ths name of Thomas do Castro; and leaving the ship at Mel bourne sought work as a shepherd in the Interior of the oolooy. % He readily obtained employment, and bv atten tion to bis duties very soon received the confidence of his employers and the settlers generally. About this time he learnt through the English papers that bis father, Sir James, was dead, and tba: the title tand estates had boon assumed by bis brother. Alfred Joseph to whom he was very much attached. Thinking that as he was considered dead It would bo better to let hla brother enjoy the tills for a time at least, and besides the roving wild life of an Australian settler was suited to his tssts, while be enjoyed bolter health under the southern sun than be ever did In England, he made up ltia mind to maintain bis incognito and settle down In the couuiry. Years rolled by, and Thomas de Castro, aias Sir Roger Charles Tlcbbome, Baronet, became the manager and owner of a bub-beriog establishment In Walla Walla, near Sydney. He prospered in business, and H -. de Castro became known in the settlements as an oxcellent butcher and an houost matt. But the romance would not be complete without the u?ust tale of love, ending with a nappy marriage. Thomas de Castro, the butcher, fell violently In love with Mary Byrne, a daughter of a pla?terer. In due time the marriage took place, and there wore high times In the racche ror a week before and a month aftor tho event. Mrs. De Castro, however, was utterly Ignorant of the previous history of her husband until some few months since, when Sir voger declared b'mself tho nghtfnl owner of the Tiehborne estates. He was moved u> this oourse when hla lady prasenlad him with a daughter, and at the same time he heard that hla brother had died, leaving ths estate heavily mortgaged. Ac cordingly sir Roger departed from Australia, and with lady nchhonto end child and four servants arrived in London on Christmas day. He has been recognised by hi* mother the d< wnger lady Tiehborne and by his lenastrv; yet bis rights will be disputed by the trustees of the late Kir Alfred and tho host of people to whom the late baronet owed money. The case will probably come op In tl>c Wirt* in ^ f.?w days but there can be no don hi that Sir Ro-er Charles T.c.iWno, baronet, Wtll be admitted to bis full rights. It will, however, be a nice point for the lawyers to decide how far the real baronet K responsible for debts Incurred b/ his brother, I*1r Alfred. It la proper to say In conclusion that Sir Roger Is every laoli s, a perfect typo of a good, frank, honest Brit letter. Of lady llchborue, suffice It to say that although sbs might feel berielf ill at ease In Kel grarian circles, she is a mom amtabls lady, a good wife and. If I may Judge of her character from what I have already seen of her, she wtll prove s blessing to ths poor m the neighborhood of Tiehborne IlalL A PEER IN COURT.

Lord Krnad raws.?'This was s criminal prosecution for nn aoeanlt. Instituted ton years ago. when the defendant was abroad, and upon which he hart been outlawed, and bad lately, upon his return to Ibii country, pleaded "guilty," and was now called up for judgment. So long ago ae 1846 Lord Ernest Vase and lbs prosecutor, Mr. Thomas Harding Ames, had been cornets In the "Queen's Own," a cavalry regiment, then stationed at Brighton. lord Ernest Vans, who si that tune was very young, being scarcely twenty years of age, had. it appeared, taJen Into serious porn nhry difficulties, and something very disagreeable had taken place between the two officers, the result of which was that Lord Ernest Vane had to leave the regiment, and noun afterwards to loavs ths country. Shortly bo foro ho loft England, on tho 81st of Octobor, 1846, ho mot Mr. Amoa atBrlgbton and spat In his fact, calling him s ? coward and blackguard On the IStb of No vember, 1866, before, aa It appeared, any communica tion had taken place between Lord Ernest Vaue and Mr. Ames auoB tho subject. Lord Ernest Van# left England. On the 20th of November. 1866, a criminal information was moved against him in this court, sod although by the practice of tbs court lbs rule should ba served per eooally, If possible, upon the defendant, which, of course, was In this cane Impossible, as he was abroad, nevertheless, somehow or other, the prosecuiton got the rale made absolute on some affidavit of ssrvioo st Itoidornes?e House upon a servant, who, it was stated said hs "would give the rule to Lord Ernest Vane,'' whlcb of counts he could not aad did not do. The result was, however, that upon this affldavdt the Court eqn.'bt term mad# the rule sbeolute, without Lord Eroesi Vane having bad anv opportunity of tntkmg ? defence or b-lng hoard; and thereupon the prosecutor took what the Court deacrlhod as ths "strictly legal but very unusual course" of outlawing ths defendant on s rrimlnsl charge, although abroad.

The Lord Chief Justice suggested that if it was to be proceed as a topic of aggravation that thai# was no pro VI) u.ion, it was rather lor tho prosecutor to bring for ward (he previous circumstances of tlta ease, which be bad not d me. Mr. Garth said he thought it wm rather for the de fendant to do so, by way of mitigation, and it must he In i ted and !)?> laken that there was no provocation. Mr. Coleridge (with him Mr. Poland) sdnreseud the court in behalf of Lord Ernest Vane, in mitigation of sentence. The court consulted tog -ther for Rome time. Mr. Justice Blackburn then addressed the defendant in these toasts:?Lord Emeu, Vane?You tiavo ploaded guilty Uyn criminal information for an aset lit. and now the court has to pasa sentence upon you, and It Is my duly to pronounce Beaten e and to utal ? the reasons npon which it la based. The offence, hp itself, was, no doubt, of an aggravated cl uracter. A t assault cem mitted by spitting in a gentimnuu s l'uca was certainly n very grave offence. But In this, ua in all other cases, we have to oonsider what wore tho circumstances which might make such an offence in somo instances more heavy and in others more light. It appears that from circumstances which neither party baa brought bofore os, a quarrel bad arisen between you and the prosecutor, in consequence of which you were obliged to leave the regiment, and be remained. What the circumstances were wo know not. If they would have tended to aggravate the offence they should have been brought b ibre us by the prosecutor, and la the absence of such evidcuce on bis part we must presume that they are not'such as would aggravate the offeuoe. If, on the other baud, the circumstances would have tended to mitigate the case, then it was for you to bring them before us. As you have not done so wo must take it that they would not mitigate the case. Further than that we do not go. It appears, however, that at that time you wore a very young man, not yet of age, and that, no doubt, is a circumstance of mitigation. But, still furthor, it appears that, when you had gone abroad, not to avoid these proceedings, but to evade pecuniary difficulties, the strictly legal, but not usual course of pro ceeding against you?that or outlawry upon the criminal charge?was taken The effect of that was that, during the lime which has elapsed, you wore placed under all the disabilities and annoyanoes of outlawry, which, no doubt, must have been in itself a considerable punish ment. Further than that, there is the lapse of time to be considered?the lapse of ten years, after which, of course, the circumsiances do not come with snob force and freshness as if they occurred more recently. Nor Is it necessary now to pass such a severe sentence as it might Pave been ten years ago, for the tone of publ.e feeling as to duelliug and tho courae to bo lak.n on such occusious are so much improved that it is happily not necossary to inflict romances so deterrent as might have been re quired some year.-: ago. Thee circumstances are men tioned as grounds for inflicting a somewhat mitigated sentence. But, after ail this has been said, ihero re mains stili u serious offence, which requires a serious sentence, though, at the same time, tbe circumstances are such as to iuduce us to pane as lenient a senteuce as possible, consistently with our duty. Wo do not think that, under such circumstances, a fine should be im posed, which would be no punishment to a person in your rank and position. Wo feel houud to pass a sen tence of some severity, and, takiug all tho circum stances into consideration, our sentence is that you be Imprisoned for three calendar months as a first class misdemeanant. Lord Ernest bowed to tho Court, and was then re moved to the prison in which misdemeanants sentenced in this court are con lined. FRANCE. The Lincoln IHrrlwl?Mrs. Lincoln's "Reply.

[Rochefort (Jan. 28) Correspondence of the London Timet.] Order* have been received here from Paris to tar down tho keel of a new coast guard armor plated vessel, to he called the Tlgre, and which will be adapted chiefly to run down an enemy by great speed. Three other vessels of the aame kind are at present being built In our dock yards?the Bdlier at Cherbourg, the Boule-Dogne at Lorlent, and the Certx'-re at Brest. These vessels will Ite of Ave hundred and tlflrty horse power, and are on the model of the Taureeu, finished at Tonlon. The coast guard armor plated ships arc specially intended lor the protection of the French porta. They are furnished with a formidable spur at the stem, and two screws, working Indepeadently of ea<h other, enable them to turn rap Idly, thus making them as suitable for defence as for at tack. The Taureau has lately been tried, and her auo oese Is perfoct. Her speed Is nood. sba turns easily, has admirable seagoing qualities even in the worst of weath er, and her weight and rapidity combined will enable her to strike an enemy's vessel with the moat destructive effect. A Cherbourg letter of the 2Mb or January says:?Oar port, although almost empty in consequence or the de parture of the transports Hnd iron-cased division for Mexi co, is nevertheless not Inactive. The first class steam de spatch b<>at E?tr6se was launched yeaerday In presence or Admiral Raynaud. Three small models of the armor plated frigate Flandre, the imperial yacht Al^la and the steam transport Cher, to be sent to the Universa' Exhi bition are now almost terminated. According to Mini-terial otders )-i3f received the fol lowing vessels, at present in course of construction, are to be coraplet-d in the course of the present year:?Tho Vclta, despatch boat, In August. and the Jeanne d'Arc, Iron-cased frigate, In September. The Estrdes Is also to be ready for- sea in June. The works of the armor plated ships SulTren and Aialante and the monitor IUIier are likewise to be advanced; and a fast .Killing corvette, named the flnchcterle to be commenced. The number of days'labor of the meu employed on those works la estimated at one hundred thousand for the year. [From Gallgnani a Voisenger, Feb. 1.] Advices from Tenerlfle state that the Iron-clad Belli, qoeuao anchored in that roadstead on the 10th of January.

THE MEXICAN QUESTION. la Mexico a "Difficulty" or a Nation* [From the I-ondon Times, Jan. 20.] If the Mexicans hare not yet suoceeded is making themselves a nation tbey have, st any rate, made them selves a difi vlty. Their destinies form a subject of tm> arra-t ng interett to more than one gra' Pernor, ami a compute puJtzte to the whole, world. are regarded a* a people "incapable of self-government," ami they have certainly never yet been ablo to govorn themselves or to acept a governor at the hands of any other notion. When, however, it It said that tbev resemble no other people, it seems to bo forgotten that they represent a Spanish colony, and that Mexico, after all, is really very like pain. Take the actual state of the country at this moment, and what do we And 1 The poB-eeslon of political power in Mexico Is disputed by half a dozen military leaders, who scarcely pror.js* any pr.uclplo, but who aro ready to oppose all adver saries by force of arms and to shoot, or bullish any rival who may fall Into their hands In these proeocdlngs they are not controlled by nnv public opinion; ludeed, there appears'to be no public in Mexico, accord ng to our acceptation of tho term. The more adventurous or turbulent spirita are ranged under the bannerslof one or other of the conicndliig chiefs, but as for the rest of the population we ncvor so much as hear of it. The ponp.e scorn utterly indiff rent to tho quarrels of the uii'i'ary, probably because it mutters littio to them which soldier is uppermost for the time. One or oilier of these lenders claims tho powor of government, aud elth.-r actually clutches it or prevents anybody else from doing so. Th ? l itter is the inore common result, and thereforo Mexico is usually in a state of anarchy; hut, allowing for this ab sence of a preponderating force. In what does Mexico diirer materially from Spain* Of course, the character of the Mexican chiefs is affected by the conditions of a ruder country und.a lower civilization, nor would it be Just to Narvnez or O'Donnell or Prim to compare them with Marques or Miramon or Juarez. Practically, how ever, the course of affairs in either country is pretty much th# same. Military leaders scramble for power by military moans. In Spain the army is a regular army, and therefore political contests take the form'of regular military insurrections. In Mczlco there is ao regular army, but only armed factions, and ao the contests take Die form of brigandage. In neither casx do the public or the people at large appear to take the least Interest, or claim the least share in the revolutions accomplished. There is, however, one very important and essential difference between the mother country aud Its old oolony. Spain has a settled form of government, and a settled dynasty at the head of it. The Queen of 8pain satisfies Spaniards, who are content with both the monarchy and the monarch. It la only in a sphere below the throne that the quarrels of the military fac tious an carried on. This relieves the country from anarchy, and secures the machinery of an established government, which may Indued be appropriated by oue successful soldier after another, but which la not Itself subvertod or destroyed. We can haidly say that Spain preserves a constitution, but she does prcserro an sdmlnlstrat'ou, such ae it may be. In Mexico this centre of attraction has been wanting, and no the result is what it might be in Spain If Nnrvaez and Prtin fought for the com mand of the State, Instead of the control of the govern ment It would appear, therefore, to follow that Mex ico might be railed, at auy rate, to the level of -pain f.y the MlatJifhment and recognition of tome Sovereign Power. l'u fortunately, this is a difficult thing to bring about, for in no respect or* the Mexicans more genuine Spaniards than In their objection to foreign interven tion. Maximilian In Mexico haa fared ne.irlv as lb as King Jooeph In Hpaln; but he haa at last got a uhauce which never fell to Joeoph's lot He is to He left, it seema, entirely to himself, without paironage or sup port, and this prospect has Actually brought him into favor. At the samo llmo hts opponent, Juarez, has b -on taken under f oreign pntettUm, proportionately to his damage; and so Maximilian gains in both way* It may perhaps he asked why any people, and above all why we In England, should concern ourselves"str ut the affairs of Mexico What Is V.oxico to ns anymore than Madagascar? Wo can only reply that Mexico meet us n great deal of m .ney, which M.idagascar does not, and that, like Spain acaln, she makes very little ap proach towards the disch-irgo or her obfgallons Besides this, the country Is so adventageonsly placed and so pro dlglouzly rich lit natumt resources that it Is impossible to look with lndiffcr*noe ou the abnso of such gifts and tint utter hies of what m-ght be a precious contribution to the wealth of the world. The fact Is, we began some yeais ago with an extraordinary sympathy lor there Mexicans They were almost as much In favor as the Greeks They had traditions of their own which. If not classical, were waroeiy laws interesting; they roso in gyms for their independence which gave them credit in onr eyes; and all Kngland looked upon the t-'pamsb colonies in Amencs, and upon Mexico above all the rest, as entering upon w long and prosperous career. How widely different the actual result ha? been need not be now remarked, but It mav be observed that, since other Spanish colonies have trealla -d at auy rate a por Hon of tbe expectations formed of them, the .failure of Mexico cannot be ascribed exclusively to the oondftton of Its origin or population. Mexico ought to be, at least, as gopd as Peru or Chile, and yat H haa never bean able to settle down to any such political organize ion as would atlow of tbe development of Its menus and resources. There has been no want of foreign capitaor enterprise. Foreign merchants have decked to Mexico, In spite of th# treatment tbey received, and tbe Mexicans might bare almost as much a monopoly of silver aa the Dutch islands In the East bare of spice. The ruin of the country ban been civil war, degene rating, in consequence of the weakness of mil tbs com batants, Into chronic anarchy. It ts probable that the Spaniard* left a fatal legacy In a wealthy and bigoted priesthood, tenacious alike of endowment and power; but this, again, cannot have been peculiar to Mexico among the colonies of Spain. We know aleo, or, at any rate, we are told, of certain principles more palely po llltical, which created strife In Mexico; but the unfortu nate fact was, that whatever might be the subject or quarrel, there woe no bringing It to an end by tb* deci sive predominance of on* causa over another. The balance of power protracted tbe oonteet until at last Uia principles contended for, whatever they mey have bean, war* forgotten In the mere brutleh quarrel of rival ihctiom II there be any party with n definite cause ud a well eonceived otpeet, we any presume it to be the party of the priests, and that party haa made leraaa with Maximilian. W* can see but one practical conclusion from all these *w <*?, and that la thai intervention in Mate*, mOeu it Jin to take thethapeof eaenpleteeenqumt. ran be of no aeail Ae temptation, or,, we should rather as/ the prorocnv''0*? *? Intorlbre wan so great that we ourselves on it tb* Ov'bar toy mode aa attempt at the work, has we have curtail !/ fjwon l>? ?>i??ed tb?t w* retired when we did. Meitrail'en, who represented the final expression of tbO4 ?Jw*ttlow, ban been really n well mesBtagTmodema Md *to ?ovareign. It seem* to be shown by his position si this moment that lha only ob- I lection to him was bit political origin, for now that he Is supposed to stand alone ho Is oblectionabi# no iongsr. Per lisps the Americans, tooy will withdraw their protest if tbs Austrian Prince eboald dome to represent only tbe nlsoM bead of tbe Mexican People; and though the Mexican faettona cannot be expected immediately to toy attde their arms, It would be aa Immense gain If th* rival chief* would only attack each other as they do In Hpaln. Perhaps In the end Mexlee might ceaar ta be a difficulty, and even get into tb* right way of becoming n nation. Mnslmtttnn to the Ka-Kmprese.
