DAILY PRESS. POHTLiVIM). Tuesday Morning. December lit 1866. Tranbla with Fiance. ‘Tt is believed,” says Mr. Johnson in his message to Congress,‘‘that, with tlm evacua tion of Mexino by the expeditionary forces, no subject for serious differences between France and the United States wotdd remain. The expressions of the Emperor and people of France warrant a hope that the traditionary friendship lietween the two countries might in that case be renewed and permanently restor ed.’’ This is obviousiy very grave language. The serious differences which, according to the message, hava interrupted the traditionary friendship of the two countries, are disclosed in the diplomatic correspondence which has just been submitted to Congress. It is well known that a friendly understanding has ex isted between the two governments, to the effect that the French troops should be with drawn front Mexico, in three I todies, the first to leave in November, 1800, the second in March, and the last in November, 1807. On the first day of November our Minister at the French court, Mr. Bigelow, prompted by ru mors in the Paris newspaper, called on the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, and learn ed with swrprise that it was the Emperor's in tention to withdraw all his troops in the spring, but none before that time. Mr. Bige low then sought an interview with the Empe ror. We give Napoleon's explanation of the new programme at length, as stated in Mr. Bigelow's dispatch of the 8th ult.: The kknperor said fpat it was Aue that he had concluded to postpone the recall of any of his troops until spring, hut that in doing so he had been influenced entirely by military con siderations. At the time he gave the order the successes of the Dissidents, supported at they were by reinforcements from the United /States, seemed to render any reduction of bis force there perilous to tbose who remained behind. He accordingly sent a telegram to Marshal Bazaine, who had already embarked a regi ment—Eighty-first 1 think he Baid—but which had 'Ibrtunately been prevented from sailing by unfavorable winds, directing him to embark no troops until all are ready to come. This dis patch, His Majesty said, was not sent in cipher, tbat no sestet might be made of its tenor in the totted States. The troops were then disem barked and returned to Orizaba. His Majesty went on to say that he sent Gen. Castelnau to Mexiqp about the same time, charged to hi fcirm Maximilian that Franco could not give him another man. If he thought he could sus tain himself there alone France would not withdraw her troops faster than had been stip ulated for % Drouyn de I/Huys, should such be his desire. But if, on the other hand, he was disposed to abdicate, which was the course His Majesty counselled him to take, Gen. Castelnau was charged to find some •ovornment with which to treat for the proteetion of French in terests and to bring all the anny home in the spring. I asked his Majesty if the President ot the United States had been notified of tbis, or it anything had been jlone to prepare his mind for this change in His Mtyesty’s pol icy. He said that he did not know that M. de Moustier ought to have done so. That as these events occurred during the interim of a change in the Ministry ot Foreign Affairs, it was possible that it had been neglected; though his telegram to Marshal Bazaine was purpose ly sent in a way to show there was nothing in his plans to disguise. Mr. Bigelow adds that there is but one sen timent In France about the necessity of aban doning Mexico as soon as possible, and that he believes the Emperor is acting in entire good faith towards us. The neglect to notify this government is explained by the change of plan occurring at a time when Drouyn de L’Huys was just laying aside andDe Monstier about assuming the duties of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The reasons lor withdraw ing the whole army at once are Dot without weight. If, as Mr. Bigelow thinks, the Em peror is acting in good faith— and there is no cccasion to doubt it—the complete evacua tion ol Mexico by the French next spring In stead ot next November', will be entirely satis factory to the American people. If the end ot the French invasion could be brought about this winter instead of next spring. It would of course be so much the better.— Whether we are prepared to go to war in be kalt of the Republic of Mexico, is another question. Air. beward appeals to tlnuk we are. in ms reply to Mr. Bigelow's dispatch, be takes a very high tone. The Emperor's decision, he says, “is now found in every way inconvenient and exceptionable,” and proceeds as follows: We cannot acquiesce, first, because the term “next spring” as appointed for the intire evacuation is indefinite and vague; secondly, because wc have no authority for stating to congress and to the American' people that we have a better guarantee for the withdrawal of the whole expeditionary force in the spring than we have heretofore had for the with drawal of a part in November. Third, iu full reliance upon at least a literal performance of the Emperor’s existing agreement, we hava taken measures, while facilitating the antici pated "French evacuatien, to co-operate with the republican government of Mexico for pro moting the pacification of that country, and for the early and complete restoration of the proper constitutional authority of that govern ment. As a part of those measures, Mr. Camp bell, our newly-appointed Minister, attended by Lieut.-General Sherman, has been sent to Mcxiso in order to confer with President Juar ez on subjects which are deeply interesting to the United States, and of vital importance to Mexico. Our polioy and measures then adopt ed iu full reliance upon the anticipated begin ning of the evacuation of Mexico, wt re prompt ly made known to the French Legation here. The Emperor will perceive that we cannot now recall Mr. Campbell, nor can we modify the instructions under which he is expected to treat, and under which he may even now be treating with the republican government of Mexico. That government will, of course, most earnestly desire and confidently expect an early and entire discontinuation of foreign hostile occupation. You will therefore state to the Emperor’s government that the Presi dent sincerely hopes and expects that the evac uation of Mexioo will be carried into effect with such conformity to the existing agreement as the inopportune complication which calls tor this dispatch shall allow. Mr. Campbell will be advised of that complication. In structions will issue to the United States mili tary forces of observation to await in every case special directions from the President. This will be done with a confident expectation that the telegraph or mail seasonably brings ns a satisfactory resolutiou from the Emperor in reply to this note. A. demand coupled with a threat and accom panied by a sneer—-such are the contents of this extraordinary dispatch. Mr. Seward re quires a “satisfactory" resolution by telegraph or return mail, significantly adding that tiro army of the United Stater will await special directions from the President, aDd plainly as serting that the Emperor’s promise is not a suf ficient guaranty for the removal of the troops at the time specified. After making all due allowance for the irritation naturally occa sional by the unfortunate neglect to advise the American government of the change of programme, it is nevertheless impossible to excuse the tone and temper of this dispatch, ii the design were to facilitate the retirement ot the 1 lend) troops, that end ce-tainly is not to bo attained by making it impossible liar the French government to withdraw them with out the humiliation of apparently yielding to a ihreat. Even if this government were pre pared to dictate and enforce an immediate withdrawal of the French troops, such lan guage as Is here used is not becoming. The representative of a great nation need not re sort to throats. The dispatch is pcculiaily weak and ill-timed, inasmuch as there is no probability, while the Mexicans are do ng "ery well by themselves, having worried Maximilian till he is ready to abdicate, and put Napoleon in serious fear for hfe troops, that Congress will consent to engage the coun try in a foreign war for the sake of anticipat ing a result which is sure to come about in six months of itself. A Mi&undebstanding.—The Argus informs u* that the Pres$ “is understood to reflect Mt. Fessenden's views on leading political ques tions.” The impression which these words convey is unjust to Mr. Fessenden and to the f * cm. Unjust to Mr. Fessenden, because he is iuthe habit of announcing his opinions for himself, and cannot fairly be held responsible for the utterances of a newspaper. Unjust to the Press, because we claim to represent the Republican party of Maine and not the pe< u liar views of any man or set of men When the Press fails to inform our Senators and Rep resentatives in Washington, what the people at home arc thinking of them anil their work, it will cease to perform one of its chief duties, and its praise or blame will Jjficome alike in significant. S?-'—._ I ht f*rnMil Truult Rnilvmt. To TBB EulTOK OF THE PuESS: The remarks of your correspondent “T” in last Monday's Press, censuring the Michigun Central Railroad for not committing their freight (100 hhls. flour) to t)ie tender mercies of the Grand Trunk, and complimenting the latter fur not having entered into combination with other roads to advance their rates, were not appreciated in this latitude. Time was when Portlaud was proud ol the Grand "flunk under another name. It was her i>et child born of her throes, cradled in her lap and rear ed to young manhood by her parental care.— j^r enterprising citizens projected it, and tliair indomitable energies and their money carried forward and completed tire Atlantic division of it. Who does not remember that gala-day, when amid the ringing of bells, the thundering of an non and the joyous shouts of a multitude which no man numbered, our honored fellow-citizen, the late Judge Preble, threw up the first spade full of earth in that mighty work? Our hopes then were high, and 1 am pleased to acknowledge that many of them (though far too few) have been realized’ under the earlier management of this road.— It lias done—would 1 could say is now doing— much for Portland, but truth compels me to say it is not so; the promise made long ago by the Grard Trunk to the ear, is not being kept to the hope. Our wants, our trade, our busi ness and our interests arc now utterly disre garded, nay trampled upon, by the present managers of this same road, and yet we per mit their iron horses to snort defiance through out principal business thorougfare, carrying the products of Canada and the West to freight their steamers for the Provinces, for Europe, tne West Indies and tne rest 01 tne world; leaving Portland merchandise for months to depreciate in value, decay and rot, or mayhap to he burned up, in their sheds and broken-down cars, all along the line, from Sar nia to Portland. Was ever greater impudence and ingratitude, on the one hand, or greater indulgence of a spoiled child, ou the other? Why, let your correspondent “T" go to the of fice of the Grand Trunk in Portland any morn ing (Sunday excepted) and see our business men, many of whom have had twice the atneunt of their whole capital locked up in tiie Grand Trunk sheds for more than two mouths, with literally nothing iu their stores to supply their hungry customers, let him, I re peat, observe these men as 1 have done, anx iously overhauling the way-bills, to find some thing for Portland,—a few barrels of flour or a few bushels of corn, just for the day’s necessi ties,—and finding nothing/or them, hut car loads by fifties for shipment, and then let him say, if he would not rather bless than curse the Michigan Central or any other road that should take the respon. ibility of forwarding his fleur by some other route, rather than store it on the Grand Trunk. Promptness is sometimes more desirable in public carriers than even cheapness, as “T.” will probably learn to his sorrow if bis next car of flour should follow his directions. But my business is rather with the Grand Trunk and its managers than with “T.,” and I proceed to charge them directly with now' holding in their sheds at Port Huron and Barnia, and which has been accumulating there since last August, more than half a mil lion dollars’ worth of Western produce belong ing to the merchants of Portland. I charge that what little produce has been forwarded by them since August last, has been most un reasonably delayed, to the great damage of Portland dealers, necessitating duplicate pur chases in the West, to be forwarded by other moi-e circuitous but more reliable routes; that these last purchases have arrived in advance of shipments made two months earlier by Grand Trunk, but not in time to save our foil trade, most of which has been diverted to oth er markets where their supplies could be de pended on. Add t® this loss ot a season’s business, the interest of the money thus locked up for months, and the inconvenience (not to say embarrassment) it occasions (especially in a city where banking capital is so deficient), and the depreciation in prices that has be«n going on,—and then super-add to all this the fact that the road has been doing the greatest through business between tbe Canadas and the Lower Provinces the past season that it has ever done, regardless of their contracts made with us, last August ami unco, to bring through our produce,—aud we have an accu mulation of losses that the courts alone can settle, and of grievances for which some speedy remedy ought to be provided. Let me illustrate by supposinga parallel case on the passenger trains, as the major al ways includes the minor, and the rechietio ad absurdam sometimes points a moral. Suppose then that the Grand Trunk trains should be filled each day for three months to come with Portland passengers,—“not a sap posabie case," I hear the reader Bay in its pres ent condition—and suppose those passengers ill ticketed through to Chicago and the West; when the trainssreach the Canada line they ire stopped and Mr. Bridges, or one of his iervants (as he calls all his subordinates), en ters the cars aud clears out all the passengers, literally unloads the cars into the Depot,—the passengers protest, and in this respect they have the advantage of mere merchandise which could not Bpeak for itself or its owuers—''ut their protests avail nothing, the Grand Mogul of the road replies, (if he deigns a replv) that be wants all the ears for his Canadian friends there and all along the line, and the Yankees must wait In tbs Depot, (months it may he) till the Canadians and Provincials get through their business and travel and the cars are at liberty. What au outrage! everybody would ex fiaim, and yet this is precisely what this same road is doing with Portland freights at the other end of the line. Look up on that picture and then upon this, as i briefly trace the parallel which iny business readers have traced for themselves. The scene opens in Chicago instead of Portland. The Grand Trunk agents are there and in Milwaukee.— Through these agents the Grand Trunk takes onr merchandise at those places, as it does pas sengers at Portland. It receipts tor it—“To be delivered in Portland. It takes it ovsr the American part of the route to the borderd of Canada at Sarnia and there unloa Is it into its depots and sheds—till these are filled, leaving the balance outside exposed to the storms and weather; and there the managers ot this road meet our produce and practically say to it, wait there Yankee freight till our Canadian friends are served—at present we require onr cars for their use; at some convenient season, some months h'ence it may be, we will attend to your case. This is no fancy picture but is virtu ally true, and as a business man, speaking as I be lieve the feelings of business men I pronounce this abuse of Portland interests even more out agreousthan the supposed treatment of passen gers, lor these, left at Island Pond, might take leg-bail and get away, but our merchandise at Sarnia must await the Grand Trunk resurrec tion day. It would have been far better for the produce dealers of Portland to have been stop ped by Mr. Bridges at Island Pond on their way out West to make purchases ratlier than to have these purchases detained at Sarnia on their way to a in irket. In one case they would have their money in their own pockets, in the other ca3e the Grand Trunk has it in its sheds. I have only time to-day to add that the merchants of Portland interested in the west ern produce trade shoulu arouse themselves, and, uniting together as one man, demand damages of the Grand Trunk for the past, ami take energetic measures to secure a decent re gard for their interests in the future. On this subject I may have a few suggestions to make another day. Commehcial Street. December 10, 18<58. Education of Freciluirn. LETTER FROM ONE OP THE TEACHERS EM PLOYED BY THE PORTLAND FR>tfDMEN’s AID ASSOCIATION. Richmond, Va., Nov. 20, lHfifi. X lauded ou the 26th of October, and pro ceeded at once to onr new field of labor ou Navy hill, where I found instead of the old Winder building as we left it in «1 uly, a comfort able school house, and also a home for the teacherp. It was quite a comfort to think how different a purpose the old building was serv ing than during the weary years of war. But to toy surprise I found, through ‘ome mistake at New York, no place was reserved for me in the new building. I felt that 1 could not l>e idle and knew there were children enough for more schools could they he gathered in. .3oa vestry was engaged for me in the colored M. E. church, and I went out iuto the lane and alleys cir the city, where I collected a sufficient num ber of children for a school. If I should say I felt the courage all oozing from my fingers’ ends it " ould 111 express the real state of my mind as I first entered that low dark room, with hut one window for light ami air, anil on look ing toward that perceived a board fence so near and so high that I could see the sky only Im pressing my face against the glass and looking directly up. I felt a sense of suffocation, and thought of the open ward at Chimborazo where I taught last year, and where we had a supply of God’s free air, if it was biting cold some times. 1 told the children to be seated, then commenced repeating, “Let not your heart lie troubled”; hut the choking in my throat com pelled me to make so long pauses that the pu pils looked at each other with a significance Which said, “ I reckon she’s done forgot it.” However tlm idea of a good cry was dispelled by turning round to find the cause of repeated sharp punctures on my arm, and catching a hit of ebouv, Duu by name, in the act of sticking a pin iuto me, while another fellow- of like mate rial, who called himself Bob, had inserted tin* tassel of my cape into his nostrils, and was showing the boys his moustache. Enough oi this first day in school. I soon succeeded in reducing them to law and order, and now have uothingof which to complain but lack of oxy geu, for you will agree with me that a teacher should possess a large amount of endurance, to stay in a room fourteen feet by sixteen with eight ieet from floor to ceiling, and hut one window, where forty living, breathing colored children arc congregated. We have all lelttlie lieeu ol .1 normal depart ment of the schools in Richmond; for if ever this people become self-educating, it must be by taking those most promising, and training them for tlie especial work of teachers; and we must have a school ImiMing tor that de partment. Mr. Manley, State Superintendent of the Freedmen’s Bureau, has the refusal of a lot at a very reasonable rate, near the Home, and has had a plan of the building made, esti mating the cost at $4,500. The Freedmen’s Bureau will give $1,000. The Central Union Commission will give $.1,500. Now with one thousand the building can go up. A week or two since, I saw Mr. Manley looking toward the lot designed for the school, and he turned away sadly saying, “We must give it up!” I 'asked why. He said, “For wanted a thous and dollars.” ‘ It must not be abandoned,” I replied. I then told, bim I could goto tlie State of Maine, tell them a simple, truthful story of life amoug the freedmeu, and get the money. After talking the matter over, Mr. Man ley wrote to Mr. Kennedy of New York, who replied, that I should be commissioned to go to Maine, and secure the money. There is a teacher here as a "visitor, who will take charge of my school in my absence. I am hoping the Portland Association will appropriate some thing for this object. I firmly believe it would be better to send one less teacher than to let this plan of a normal school be a failure. Oh, think what a monument to the su cess of Federal arms, to the triumph and sjnead of Republican principles, a normal school for col ic red persons would be, offering advantages for intellectual culture equal to any offered to the whites, and this iu tlie Confederate capital.— 0»i the day when I can see t tie building com pleted, and standing in its pride, fanned dy tlie same breezesjthat softly kiss the graves of our martyred dead, just across the river, at Belle Isle, in that day I shall receive sweet revenge on these people, who slowly and cruelly tor tured to death, in one of their prison dens, the brother dearer to me than my own life. Meucie N. Bakes. Foreign and American Greenness.—In Rome one’s fellow-tourists are a constant source of gratification and surprise. I thought that American travellers were by no means the most absurd among those we saw, nor even the loudest in their approval of the Eternal City. A certain order ot German greenuess affords, perhaps, the pleasantest pasturage for the ru minating mind. For example, at I he Ville Eu dovici there was, besides numerous Englishry in detached bodies, a troop of Germans, chiefly young men, frugally perusing the Scheuswur digkeiten in the social manner of their nation. They took their enjoyment very noisily, and wrangled together with furious amiability as they locked at Guereino’s “Aurora.” Then two of them parted from the rest, and went to a little summer-house in the gardens, while the •then followed us to the top of the Casino — There they caught sight ot their friends in the the arbor, and the spectacle appeared to over whelm them. They bowed, they took off their hats, they waved their handkerchiefs; it was not enough. One young fellow mounted on the balustrade ot the roof at his neck’s risk, lifted his hat on his cane and flourished it in growing to the heart’s-frieuds in the arbor, from whom he had parted two minutes before. In strange contrast to the owner of this en thusiasm. so pumped and so unmistaka Idy mix ed with beer, a fat and pallid Englishwoman sat in a chair upon the roof, and coldly, coldly sketched the lovely landscape. And she and the blonde young English girl beside her pro nounced a little dialogue together, which I give because I saw that they meant it for the public: The Young Girl—“I wonder, you knou, you don’t draw-ow St. Petuh’s!” The Artist—“O-ah, you Unor, I can draw-ow St. Petuh's from so rnenuee pouiuts.” 1 am afraid that the worst form of American greenness appears abroad in a desire to be per fectly up In critical appreciation of the arts, and to approach the great works in the spirit of a connoisseur. The ambition is not altogeth er a bail one. Still I could not help laughing at a friend of mine wlten he told me that he had not yet seen Raphael’s “Transfiguration,” because he wished to prepare his mind for un derstanding the original by first looking at all the copies he could find.—N.
