Ten days ago three French transports lay at Vera Cruz, awaiting the French troops which had evacuated the Mexican capital a week lie fore. By this time Bazaine and his mercenaries are all on board, and the Mexi cans are left to settle their own affairs. Max imilian did not leave the city of Mexico with the French probably on ac count of his personal hostility to Bazaine. Whether he has since left the coun try or not is a matter of very slight impor tance. The conflict henceforth is between the Liberals and the church party. Whether It be Maximilian, or Miramon, whoever is set up to oppose Juarez will be only the puppet of the organization which since the Latin race first made its appearance in that unhappy land in the persons of Cortez and his band of adventurers, has preyed upon its resources, absorbed its wealth, controlled its destiny, cursed it in a thousand ways, and maintained its [lower with a vigorous persistency which would be admirable if it were not selfish and hateful. Under the constitution of 1857,llie peopleof Mexico obtained a voice in the m anagement of public affairs. It was then that the ancient hat red of the natives for their Spanish oppressors first found vent through constitutional chan nels and took the form of political agitation. In the country villages, where the population was mainly native, it had been the practice of the wealthier families to send their sons to the cities to be educated in letters and espe cially in the law. Alter their education was completed, these young men returned to their homes, resumed the simple habits of their an cestors, and used their acquired powers for the defence of their friends and neighbors against unreasonable exactions under color of law. These men became naturally the repre sentatives of their districts in the Congress assembled under the new constitution. Jua rez belonged to this class, and when Com montort was elected first President Juarez was elected to the office of Supreme Judge, the second officer in the republic and the one upon whom in the absence of the President the constitution imposes the executive func tions. The Liberal party in the Congress so constituted was strong enough to undertake what the Italian government has since done —to decree the secularization of a large por tion of the property which had by various means come into the |>ossessioii of the Church. It was indis(>ensable to the welfare of the na tion, to deprive that gigantic corporation of its ill gotten and worse used gains; but the attempt was the signal for war. The Church party badgered Commonfort into resignation early in 1868, and refus ed to recognize Juarez as his suc cessor, setting up first Zuloaga and then Miramou as Presidents without the formality of an election. Juarez maintained his right by lorce of arms, drove Miramou out of the countiy, entered the capital in triumph, was elected President in 1861, repudiated the rebel debt contracted by Miramon, and in May, 1863, ten days before the French troops sent to collect the debt entered Mexico, was made Dictator by an act of Congress expressly pro vided tor in the constitution. He has held his office by virtue of that authority ever since. Now that the French have withdrawn Juarez finds himself face to face with Mira mou, his old antagonist. Miramon, it is said, has been studying the art of war during the period of his absence in Europe; but so also has his former and present adversary. Mejia, the ablest of the native generals in the Im perial service, has just gone over to the Lib erals. The military contest will be brief, aDd the result ol the political conflict is as little in doub,. The native population of Mexico constitutes three-fourths of the whole num ber of inhabitants. Such a majoiity, united by the determined opposition which it has encountered, must be invincible. The sagaci ty, moderation and respect for the constitu tion which Juarez has uniformly displayed, leave no room to doubt that he will embrace the first opporutnity to lay aside his extraordi nary powers. It is thought that Ortega will be elected to the Presidency. Under his ad ministration, it is to lie hoped that the re forms, so long delayed, may be happily con summated. The Amruiluirin (o the Liquor Ur. The Bangor Whig comments upon the amendment to the liquor law now pending before the Legislature, a9 follows : Upon a careful consideration of this bill, we are impelled to say that we doubt the expedi ency of its passage; and we know that this is the feeling of many who are known as “Maine Law men” aud have always given their most earnest and zealous support to the policy of “legal suasion." Among these we have rea son to know are more than one of the Judges of the Supreme Court—perhaps all of them. Tlir prominent and practical objection to the hill, in our mind is, t~e probability— al most certainty—that it would lie generally in operative, f rom the difficulty of procuring con victions, where the penalties are so stringent. Persons indicated would be likely to contest almost every case to the extreme end in hope of getting off by disagreement of juries—and in the mean tiino contiuuc selling, and make enough at least to pay expenses.—It is thought by those well qualified to judge, that it would lie very rare to iiud a jury which would not contain one man at least, to hold out against conviction in a case where impris onment is tlio penalty. The eases of convic ion would, (in the opinion of many sincere temperance and Maine Law men,) be the ex ception rather than the rule. There are other objections to the bill—among them to the destruction of condemned liquors, rather than tueir forfeiture to the town agen cies at present—hut we need not enumerate these. Some provisions of the hill are good, and would serve to render the present law more effective. Friends of the present law seriously fear the effects of the probable or possible failure to ob tain convictions nnder such a law as that pro posed by this bill. The danger is great of a reaction, and the opening of the traffic cutiic ly by a license law. The present law though not entirely effective in large places, has yet completely stopped the traffic in numerous towns, and will in almost all, if fully enforced. If we pass the new bill, we may not only find it utterly ineffective, but be unable to get back the old law which certainly has stopped a vast amount of liquor selling. We throw out these ideas for the considera tion of thoughtful friends of temperance in the Legislature, in the hope that they will at least give the subject a careful examination, and he fully satisfied that the objections are ground less before they pass the hill.—We must speak what is our honest conviction in this matter, at the risk of misapprension and censure. We believe there is great hazard to the cause of temperance in passing the bill—and thus believing, it is our duty to say so. The objections ol the Whig to the passage of the bill are entitled to serious considera tions. There ought to be no risk of misap prehension or ecnsusc attending the discus sion of so important a subject; but it there is, it is a risk which all who meddle with it must share alike. The substance of the WTiig's ob jections may be expressed in two proposi tions : 1. That the present law Is reasonably ef fective. 2. That It will be difficult to procure con victions under the new one. We think the Whig uses very mild language when It describes the present law as ‘‘not en tirely effective in large places.” Intoxicating liquors are sold openly in at least a hundred places in this city. The fines are simply car ried over to the account of the consumers and the sellers lose nothing in the long tun. The State convention recently in session at Au gusta pronounced with the greatest unanimi ty (or the amendment. The conviction is very general, that the present law, even if it could be enforced, could not prevent illegal sales. Tbe main objection, that jurors will petjure themselves because they may regard the pen alty as excessive, it is rather imaginary than real. The purpose of the law is to transler the sale of this article to the agents designat ed for the purpose, just as a license law would put the whole business into the hands of li censed venders. The people of the State, for satislactory reasons, choose to limit the sale in this way. Their right so to do is complete and indisputable. If anybody chooses to en gage in a business which is thus put under the ban ot he law he does It at his peril and with a tuU knowledge of the penalty. A jury might hesitate to convict a man of a crime committed under the influence of sudden pas sion ; hut if he had deliberately and soberly chosen to engage in an illegal business, his case will not inspire much sympathy. Con gress has Just undertaken to forbid tiie im portation of tire crackers. Opinions may dif fer as to the propriety of the prohibition; but it would be hard to find a man who would be so far influenced by his opinion in that re spect, as to swear that to the best of his knowledge and belief fire crackers imported In defiance of the law are not fire-crackers. That there may be setae difficulty in en forcing the law without a State constabulary, we are prepared to believe. We are glad to see that the Legislature seems inclined not only to pass the bill, but to take it out of Mu nicipal politics altogether and provide for its uniform enforcement throughout the State.— In this way it wiil receive the lair trial, which is aU its friends ask for it. The Werkiei Hire »f Cenaectica,. The workingmen's convention at New Ha ven last week was attended by 850 delegates. -The Democratic managers supposed they had a perfectly sure thing in securing the nomina tion of Mr. English. At a caucus the eveuiug before the convention met, the cheat sought to be practiced upon the workingmen by the lead ers of leagues and trades unions, who had professedly claimed to be uo-party men while in the employ of the Copperhead managers, was fully exposed, and those who had acted in good faith shook the dust from their feet and held a separate caucus at the New Haven House. In the morning several of the Democratic State committee were on the ground, confi dent of carrying their point—the nomination of Mr. English—and they relied greatly on the roads being blocked up with snow, so as to prevent tho attendance of delegates from the rural districts, who, it was pretty generally un derstood, would be as a general thing hard to manage,to say nothing of their sympathies with the Union party. In case they should not ap pear, it was believed the leagues and unions iu New' Haven could control matters, and there would be no difficulty in carrying out the pro gramme. VV hen Hie convention came together It had a somewhat dubious look lor the Republican members, but pretty soon the trains began to arrive and in them came the earnest and hon est workingmen from the back towns, wlio were not to cheat or be cheated and Copper head stock tell gradually to a low poiut. The scenes in the convention cannot bede scritied in print. The confusion knew no bounds. Uedlam was quiet in comparison. On the floor, mingling with delegations, were politicians pulling and hauling, each eager to have something doue, and yet all so thorough ly mixed that little could lie done. The whole forenoon was speut in getting a committee on credentials, and then an adjournment was reached. After diuuer and after many bois terous demonstrations it was tinaily voted not to nominate a ticket, and a series of resolu tions to the following effect was adopted: 1st. In favor of eight hours as a legal day's work. 2d. That there is no conflict with capital, hut recommending the same energy and per severance in the use of honorable means to accou plisli the object of the workingmen, as was shown by so many of our members dur ing the war which s£ved the nation. ad. That it is the duty of all interested In the cause to do all in their power to elect sena tors and representatives who will support the cause. 4th. Against nominating a State ticket, but advising all to vote for candidates that favored the cause; that all attempts of em ployers, by threats or coercion, to control the votes of employes, are outrages ou tie fran chise; and demanding at the hands of the le* gislature a law puuishiug such olfences by im prisonment in the penitentiary. The affair failed of its object, so far as Con necticut Copperlieadism is concerned. The English managers did not estimate the intel ligence of the workingmen of Connecticut,—a large majority of whom would sooner forfeit half their pay than bolster up a party whose leaders for years have denounced the honest laboring men of New England as “greasy mechanics.” The correspondent of the Boston Advertis er, iroui whose report the above account is substantially taken, says the result of the con vention maybe set down as “a good strong lift for Governor Hawley and his supporters.” Wk« wu Ji.iutf In May, 1862, Thurl.iw Weed, writing from 'London to the Albany Evening Journal, said, “beforo the present year expires ail doubt or question as to the authorship of the ‘Junius Letters’ will be removed.” The prediction was not verified. How It came to be made and why it was not verified, Mr. Weed now explains as follows in a letter to the New Vork Times: lu 1862, the late Mr. Joseph Parker, a gen tleman ol large and various information, in formed me that he had been (or several ye^rs devoting his intervals of exemption from offi cial duties (as Tax Commissioner) to a Lite 01 8ir Philip Francis, and that his researches would result in disproving the confident asser tion ot “Junius,” in one of his private letters to Woodfail, “that he was the sole depository ol his own secret,” and that it would “die with him." The subject was one which had interested me much at a period when “Junius” was read more generally and with greater interest than exists now. The question as to who “Junius” was engaged the attention of authors and ed itors. 1 had, Ibrly years ago. entered with much zeal into that controversy. Finding me thus sympathetic and familiar with the sub ject, Mr. Parkes luvited me to his apartments at .Staple Inn, Uolhurn, and submitted his manuscripts to my jtcrusal. There 1 passed mauy charmed hours. The materials lor his work were uot only ample but conclusive.— They established beyond a doubt, or a cavil, or a peradventurc, that Sir Philip Francis was the author ot the Letters of Junius. Twice during these readings, in company with Mr. Parkes, I visited the then venerable and since departed John Taylor, author ol “Junius Identified,” first published nearly fif ty years ago. Mr. Taylor had intended to avail himself of subsequent and cumulative evidence, hut on account of his advanced age had cheerfully committed the whole to Mr. Parkes. These breaklast conversations with Mr. Taylor were exceedingly interesting. His bachelor life, like that of Charles Lamb, was solaced by an aged maiden sister. He had formerly known most of the literary celebri ties of the last years of the past, and in the first years of the present ceutury; and gave us pleasant recollections of their personal characters nnd habits. Only a lew weeks before the sudden death of Mr. Parkes, he informed me that he ex pected to get his life of Sir Philip Francis to press the then ensuing autmnn, and, iu pur suance of a previous understanding, 1 was to arrange for its republication here. Since his death I have heard nothing further aliout it. The researches had all been accomplished and the work had progressed so tar towards completion that no difficulty existed, nor was any such delay necessary. I h.d expected and ho)>cd that Miss Bessie Parkes, the gitted daughter of my old and cherished friend, (a) ready a distinguished and disciplined writer,) would complete and publish the unfinished w?. , her honored father,—a work on which lie had bestowed years of toll, and to the publication of which he looked forward with conti ienec, in an appreciative and ap proving popular sense of its value, tor his re ward.

Now sup l>ose these animals were'standing in a single Jijie, as near together as they could well stand, would make a string 16,000 miles long.— 1 they stood sixteen abreast, they would t*acli from Portland to Boston.

ORAUf. The amount of grain received in Chicago each year is about 50,000,000 bushels, or say 150,000 bushels each woiking day of the week. Of this about 25,000,000 bushels is corn; the rest wheat, oats, 4rc. LUMBKB. The lumber trade has also assumed gigan tic proportions.

Fbotkction to Roofs.—Sbiugled roots soon acquire a furze, which, operating as a sort ot dam in wet weather, retains the water and causes the shingles to rot early; and when dry, it is like tinder on which a spark falling IVom the chimney will suddenly set the roof on fire. To guard against both of these lia bilities, take an opportunity just before a rain, to sprinkle a coating of air-slacked lime nil over the surface of the roof. The rain and lime will remove the furze, making the sur face clean and smooth, and the lime water penetrating the shingles will preserve the wood for many years if the practice is occa sionally renewed.
