Bkflch of His Life and Pabllc Services. The following biographical sketch of Sefior Jost Maria Igteslns, of Mexico? wno lias oeen declared President el the Supreme Court of Mexico, and, by virtue of that office, President of tbe Republic Should a vacancy occur from the death or Seilor Lerdo de Tejado?has been especially translated or tlie Hkkali), aud is to-day published for the m forniation of our readers:? JoaC Maria Iglesias was born in the capital of Mexico, on the fith of January, 1S23. Ilis parents, lolan Iglesias and Mariana Inzatirraga, distin guished in ihe society of Mexico lor their superior Intelligence and refinement. dedicated their son Irom childhood to the study of the sciences, ?o that upon receiving the honorable title of lawyer, at the age of twenty-two years, tie had alreadr filled with distinction the professor's chair for tbe course of arts in tbe Col lege of tan Uregurio, and that of langaages for English and French in the College of San lldefonso. One year alter receiving his title as lawyer he save lessons as a professor in jurisprudence; at the paine time also commenced his public career, lie being elected a member of the Com mon Council or the city of Moxiss. At this period (1847) occurred the American Invasion, when the men of the Nerth, like new Vandals, without Justice or reason, Invaded tlie sacred soil of the country, violating the laws or the rights or the people and the mutual obligations wblcli should exist betweon uatiou*. The people and the army battled hciolcally against the In vader, giving to the world an example of valor, but the internal discords or Mexico gave the triumph of the Union of the North. During this terribly trying period tor Mexicans Sefior Iglesias was Fir.^t Minister oi the su preme Tribunal of Wur, aud afterward Auditor (Judge Advocate; or tho Army of the Fast, aud lie abandoned the dear soli of his country rather than to see it profaned by the In vauer. The sad preliminaries of the "Casa Colo rada" and the dishonorable trea'y or Guadalape put an end to the contest between Mexico and the L'nited States. The government seeing the Htness and capacity of Seiior Iglesias named him <'hi?>for the section or Active credit, and In l8.*>o a member oi the Board of Public Credit?a laborious charge, which lie tilled with his ualural energy. Tlie popu lar vote callcd him to a seat In Congress in the year 1802. Versed In the study of human letters, dis tinguished tor his classical attainments, his knowl edge oi (ireek and Kouian, as well as ol modern History, his own clear talents, easy and logical mode of spcech, Ills erudition, he procured for him self many parliamentary triumphs and oratorical laurels, aud he gave satislactlon aud honor to his constituents. Alter the administrations of Huerrera and Arista, In which the Kepublic enjoyed some tranquillity, the administration of Santa Anna followed, which, by Its arbitrary acts and despotism, excited the Indignation of men who were lovers of liberty, and the plan proclaimed in Agartla, aided by the liberal arms, demolished Ills dictatorial power. Iu isse Iguaclo Comoniort was President, and one of ais Ministers was seilor Miiruei L-rde de Tejada (brother oi the present rresiaent), the able Initiator of rerorin. During this period Sefior Iglesias was ehler of the second section of the Ministry of the Treasury, aud gave for Comoniort the law of disamortizatlon. although this branch or business did not belong to his section, but to Sefior Lerdo, who gave him especial charge of the affair. The weakness and vacillation oi President Uoinonlorl Impeded tbe carrying uut or this reform atory law of dlsamorti/ation. Ascending step by stop Sefior Iglesias became Secretary of state. From the second section of the Department ol the Treasury he occupied the position or Minister of Justice, and was afterwards also Secretary of the Treasury, filling Ijoth offices at oue tune, with nis customary dili gence and liardlatK>r, pood judgment and prudence, always demonstrating Ins aptitude and eminent Itness for a public man. Having separated irom the Ministry on the 18th or September, 1*57, he was called by a popular rote to occupy a seat on the Hench of the supreme Court ol tnc nation. Tne lonservutlvo party, seeing the advances oi liberal ism, endeavored to undermine the administration of Comoniort, and succeeded In obliging him to rive a coup d'e'tot. A bloody struggle between the liberal and conservative party followed. In the midst ol the contest tlie laws ot reform were given ,n Vera Cruz, and the liberal party, led by Benito luare*, triumphed over the reaction, General Ml ramon disappearing from the politics! scene. The constitutional government returned to tho capital tnd occupied themselves In reorganizing the admin istration. Sefior Iglesian, always disposed to serve his country, was placed in charge of the general administration or revenues, and aitcrward ol tne Dustotn House lu Mexico, the conservative party, not satlsiled with their defeat by a fatal error which tne most ardent patriots call crime, and In order to avenge their enemies and dominate them, invited lorelgn intervention. England, France and Spain gave ear to the suggestions or some illusive persons, untf with the pretext ol the suspension ot in.- payment or credits by Sefior Juarez, concerted the convention of London, unci went to Mexico t*ie irlparly expedition to Impose a new government on tlie Republic, but a clever man, Senor Dobiado, ideated the league. Separating hl*self from the Knmlsh ami Spaalsh, lie re-em narked hi* troops. 1'lie Froperor Napoleon III., loving adventure and rx.wer, undertook the enterprise, and proposed ta? destruction ef the Kepublic and the substitution of ill empire but tins adventure proved a bloody Srmia and in this trial of the Mexican people ft wis demonstrate.! that their valor was I not counterfeited neither their love ef liberty nor ^?Smaencc. T|da torrlWe arawa had It* tramc I ftna!? in the (Vrro de los CampanM. .seflor Igleai.is, a faitlnul republican, followed, with a few others, iSeiior President Juares to the frontier of the nerili, forming a part of liia government, and sulleriag all the inconveniences attending an extended campaign, in the midst of the conflict dedicating himself with hi* accustomed *eal to the despatch ing of public business. In 18?3 he was encliarged with the portfolios of Justice and Internal Im provements (Fwn#nto). aud in January, 1S64, he was entrusted also with that of the Department, ot I hi- Treasury ; and in the discharge ef this triple obligation he continued until July, is?7. following which period he was left with only the duties of Minister ol Treasury. The fatigues ?( a govern ment :n camp injured Ills health extremely; hut, notwithstanding, this indefatigable worker con tinned to discharge the duties ?!' Ills office without liope 01 glory or inceutive of gold, but only lor the love of liberty and independence. Three grand figures stood forth in the midst of tin- struggle against the intervention mid the empire?Juarez, Lerdo and Iglesms and to the constancy ol these meu is due the salvattan, the autonomy of the re public. lu December, 1867, Neuor Iglesias separated luuisei! trom the Ministry el the Treasury. In 180* lie was member of Cougrevs until the moatli of Hep tember, when he again assumed the dutiea ol the Mluister 01 (iobernacien, and he aides being entrusted with the Ministry of Uobernaclou, he was was also encharrfed hi the interim with the portlolio ef Justice since Julv, 18GH. In the month ol September of thesaine yenr lie was permanently entrusted with the same portfolio, and remained faithfully discharging these duties until Dect iiiber, 1870. lu 1*71, oppressed by so uiucli latigue. and greatly broken in health, lie retired irom pabllc liie, attending only to the re estublishiuent ol his health; but in February, 137/, lie again returned to public life, and took upon himself the duties of the Custom House, where he lias remained until the present moment. Aiiiurte fatigablo worker, he has not alone de voted himseir to public affairs, bu< as a lover 01 tlie sciences he has occupied himself at the same time with these. He has written, in union with other persons, "Los Apuntes !'ara la Historia de la Cuerra entre Mexico v los Kstadoi t'nidos," and also is author of "has Uevlstaa llis toricas Sobre la Intervenclon Kraucesa."
