Assurances have b.'cn rccc.ved fr. m tin l government o! the .State in which tlie plau was matured that the procce lings will not meet with its encouragement or approval. It is a question worthy ot your considi ration whether our laws upon this subject are adequate to the previ nti.m or puni.huunt of the crime thus meditated. MEXICO. lii the month of April, as Congress is aware, a • fiiendlj arrangement was mad# between the Emperor of France and the President of tin; United States, for the withdrawal (roin Mexico <>f the Krench ex peditionary military forces. The with drawal was to be efl" cted ill three detach ments. The first it was understood would leave Mexico in November, the second in March, and the third and la-t in Novem ber 1807. Immediately upon the comple tion of the evaeuntion, the French Govern ment wns> to assume the same attitude of in regard t>» Mexico as is lrcld by the Government of tho United States. Repeated assurances have been given by the Empctor since that agree ment, that he would complete the promised evacuation within the period mentioned, or sooner. It was rcasouably expected that the procee. iugs thus contemp'atcd would produce a c i.-is of great political interest in the Republic of Mexico. The newly appointed Minister of tho United States, Mr. Campbell, was therefore sent forward on the 9th day of November last to resume his proper functions as Minister I'lenipo tentiary of the United States to that Re public. It was also lhought expedient that(he should be attended iu the city of Mexico by the Lt. General of the Army efthe United States* with a view of ob taining such information as might be im portant to determine the course to be pur sued by the United States, in re-estab lishing and maintaining necessary and proper intercourse with the Itepubli. e of Mexico. Deeply in teie-ted in the cause of liberty and humanity, it seemed nn ob vious duty on our part to exercise what ever influence we possessed fur the restor ation and permanent establishment in that country of a democratic and republican form of government, Such was the to id", tion of affairs iu regard to Mexico, when on the 2'2d of November official informa tion was received from l'aris that the Kni p»ror of France had some time before de rided not to withdraw a detachment of his forces in November according to his promise, but that thU drri»i<m was made with tbe |mrp"*e of withdraw ing th? whole of the f>rc«« in th- en*uin? *prin~. <if this detrrmiaatiaa. br.wn .-r.tb" I nit>-d SiatcH had do* rfffiT>j »»} t-rtie- or intima'ijii, and »* woum M' br • -nr. ••ion »»> rrrr vrd Vr tie o"Trr;wnf. cat* *s< tikti !•> Mil' k» «*•«»> r-S t". •*:' } np»r * *4 Fr*r-. 1 nm» Uf> ti' f-w r-»at ri ■!' »•¥ I*4 at-r* mb t ■ ifc-t m «• *•■ x~~' ft t|»» •VatWf <M f 1 ? m:, m. ■ wviipMii w I rt --ri'r *r *w «#*» » < »•»-- T 1 - : ? ■ i.f,» %» *W «* Smm ■— f{ it V « *OB if » * 4 • . - m I*-m A m %* "+r *•— t t*■~ •* —* 4M» « • ■MO T4T M 4Mf *Moflba«w ♦ - -M*. «M> «P • f * ONfeMMMM* ftap JpM&witft***!* * 4 « !v 4MNM» -.—in": IP Hi ntt -4Mw MM ,*. stP»" <p- ♦ «» «» f «p> fe * Ik * • w ■■ t f « «4 tLf I v t » t* • • til I .;»* ft -■ • ► \ t . * » t " -I«. • ia t•. t . !,♦ .. • «!!»( M Li P* .4 : t» i-t t.L , jn: a in* c \ > *4*4 li 4 « . :* v «.|f i i : k al iu ' »*»r; «•<«!•» 1 r tb«* f] r. . ; i.I *, iaw* 1 ' " j- i.' *il 1 ii'. j .ut it It * il«t 0. -n w.

Judgment and sentence ot death have b en pronounced against some, while others have been nc quitvd. l'ully believing in the maxim of government tint severity of civil punish ment tor misguided persons who have disastrously tailed is unsound and unwise, such representations have been made to th ' British Oovernment in bel.alt of the convicted peisons, as being sustained by an enlightened' and humane judgment, will it is hoped, induce iu their cas san exer cise of clemency and a judicious amnesty to nil who were engaged in tl e movement. Counsel have been employed by the j:ov eminent to defeud the citizens of the l.'ni ed .States, on tii.-.l lor capital offences in Canada, and a discontinucnce of the pros ecutions' which were established in the couits of the United States against those took part in the expedition, as not only political in its nature, but foreign from the United Slates in its causes and object.*. Ti.o attempt was understood to be made i:i sympathy with nn insurgent parly iu Ireland, and by s tilting nt a lSritish province on this continent, it was designed to aid in obtaining redress for pol i ical grievances which it was assumed the people of Ireland had sufl'ere I at the hands of the British Government during a pi ri d of several countries. The persons engag ed in it were chiefly natives of that coun - try. Some of thein had, while others had not, become citizens of the United States under our general laws of naturalization. Complaints of misgovcrnmeut in Ireland cntinualy engage the aiteiitiou of the British nation, and so great an agitation is now prevailing iu Ireland that the British Government has deemed it neeesssary to suspend the writ of habeas corpus in that countr}. Tiles.' circumstances must nec essarily modify the opinions which might otherwise have been entertained in regard to an bxpedi ion expressly prohibited by our neutrality laws. So long as these laws r.'inaiu upon our statute books they should he faithfully executed. If they op erate harshly, unjn.-tly, or oppressively, Congress alone can apply the remedy by their modification or repeal. The political and commercial interests of the United Sla'.cs are not unlikely to be afl'ected in some degree by events which are transpiring in the Eastern re gions of Europe, and the time seems to have come upon out Government when it I ought to have a proper diplomatic repre sentative in Greece.

Theargn guaients eiied in favor of his policy of res ti raiion, arc copious and conclusive, and an> unanswerable even by the specious sophistry of fanaticism. Its mild, digni fied, statesman-like, but firm language", is in striking contrast with that of the fren zied enemies of the nation, who have al ready inaugurated in Congress, each nod every measure they conceive will place them iu full control of the reins of power. Already have movements been made to add to the legitimate powers of Congress, those likewise of the Executive, to take them away by gross usurpation from the man they lot he for standing between them and snpreine power. The final result no man can predict. Indeed we have fullcn upon evil times. Flushed wl'li the effects of u victory won by a misrepresentation of the real issues involved, we will not be surprised if the nation should again lie plunged into the vortex of ruin. Let ev ery thinking man give the Message a care ful perusal, and aid as far may be in sell ing the tempest of popular discord. A VALUABLE BOOK. —Wc aro indebted to Messrs. H. 11.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.—0n Thursday, the 2'ith, Secretary Seward communica ted to a special cabinet meeting, a draft of his dispatch to Ministel Big-low, Com menting upon Napoleon's breach of the agreement to withdraw the French from Me cico durifg this month. After it was road, the cabinet unanimously voted that it be made stronger iu insisting that the French troops shall be withdrawn accord ing to the programme agreed on in June last. The cable news to-day shows that the dispatch hud its effect, The French Minister read a dispatch to-day by cable ftoin Mousiier, French Minister ot State, announcing that fourteen vessel would sa.l i mmediately from Brest for Vera Cruz, where the French toops in Mexico were required to rendezvous for their embark ation. Ten additional vessels will leave by the middle of December. By the Jjoth of January all the French troops will probably be out of Mexico. This solves authoritatively the finally of tho French Mexican muudle. BUFFALO, Nov. 30.—Tho following important items of Nov. 28th, have en delayed by the bad condition of the wires. In regard to the removal of troops from Mexico it is a military necessity to remove all at once. There is doubt that tjifa will be done. Much speculation has been in dulged in as to design of Lieut. Gen. Sher man in accompanying Minister Campbell to Mexico. The truth is, however, he was designated as adviser to that gentle man, though as to diplomatic affairs in > Mexico, and the military movcin«pU on tho frontier, should an emergency arise, would require a new disposition of thu troops, but aince the reception of the Em peror's iateatioaa with regard to tks re moval of liia army, it ia thought such ne asaaity will not or cor.
