As Early As six of clock the troops that Wero under the command of general Escobedo Wero formed upon the a Cerro do la Campana a a Short distance from the City where Tho execution was to take pm Ace the people of quere Taro were flocking in Tho Sandh 10 the place to see the closing scenes in the life of men whom they All As the clock strikes seven the Church Bells Send up the dreaded toll and announces the fact that the prisoners have left their prison for Tho last nine and Are upon their Way to the place of execution. After the lapse of a few a moments they appear in sight drawn in. Carriages surrounded by a Largo guard the emperor first Miramon next and Mejia last. As they near the place convulsive sobs break from the crowd All Are deeply moved Aud affected. When at length the carriages Stop Aud the prisoners get out amongst the vast contours you could hardly see a dry Eye tokens of dissatisfaction. Were manlies Aud of All those present the condemned men. Seemed less than any others interested in what is taking place. Maximilian upon alighting on Tho ground saluted Tho people in an easy and Graceful manner and with an elastic step marched to Tho fatal spot. The prisoners were dressed in Plain clothes their arms were not bound neither were they blindfolded. After taking their position the emperor and Miramon spoke to the persons present the emperor spoke in a Clear Ami firm Notin amp a and with nothing of Tho bravado he seemed to feel his situation. He said that when he was first waited upon at Home by a deputation from Mexico who came with credentials offering him the government of the country that he refused. At a subsequent meeting the proposition. Was again presented to him when he replied that if he could become convinced that a majority of the people of Mexico thought that it was for their interest to place him at the head of the government that he might consent but not otherwise. A. Few months a afterwards another deputation waited upon him and brought additional testimonials. Upon taking the advice of the ruling Powers of Europe he was advised that he had no other course to pursue save to accept the Call which he did. He denied that the court which tried him had the Power to do so As his was a Case in which the Good Faith of the nations of the world was pledged. He had never done an act Talaat had not been for the Good of Mexico and hoped that his blood might Stop the further effusion of blood in the country. Miramon spoke from a p Iper which to held in his hands. The Only regret he said a be Felt in dying was should the liberals retain. The reins of govern Juenst his children might be pointed at As Tho children a traitor. To had always opposed the i i Jeral party from principle had always been in favor of order Aud against the disorder of Tho rabble and that Lin should die As he had lived a conservative. He was satisfied to die a Man could uie in 110 nobler cause than to die for his country. His name and his acts would Livo after him and posterity would judge Wiecher he had done right or wrong. To closed with i in emperor Verri Mexico a Mejia made no address. He however sent for Escobedo Tho Day Benoie. And said to him that he would die a poor Man Itiat during the time that he had been in service he had never made an Effort to make Money and his Only wealth consisted of forty head of cattle which were in the mountains. He asked As a favor that the merchants of Matamoros to whom he owed considerable would not press his wife to pay his debts when she came into Possession of the Money left her by the kindness o the emperor. After Miralou had ceased speaking the guard were drawn up the prisoners standing facing them. The emperor culled the sergeant to him and drawing from his pocket a handful of Twenty Dollar pieces gave them to him and requested that after his death he Divide it amongst his companions and ask. Ing them As a favor to aim for i s heart. Tho sergeant then resumed his place the officer in command gave the signal the Volley was fired and the prisoners Lay stretched upon the ground. The emperor was not quite dead there was considerable quivering of the Muscles of the body although five balls had entered his breast two other soldiers were called up who shot him in the Side m he Lily upon the ground. and Mejia a were killed by the first Volley each having received four balls in the breast.

A world.1 Washington july 1.�?Tho official confirmation of the execution of Maximilian in Mexico has produced a profound semis action hero in governmental and diplomatic Al quarters. At the mexican legation Tho news was first received from the austrian embassy Olio gave it with their official credence. Senor Romero made haste to communicate it to Secretary Seward who expressed no opinion either Way but is disposed to. Look upon his efforts in to half of Maximilian a a life As hindered by the absence of the proper diplomatic representative of this government in Mexico. The austrian legation received the news with a thrill of horror and sent it to Vienna Over the at of Antic Cable with All possible Speed and dispatched it by Telegraph to count Wydoma Bruck Tho minister who is temporarily absent from Washington 1 a an important official fact has transpired today Tho policy proposed by the French government to Tho United states As. Regarded Tho presence of Maximilian in Mexico. It appears that As Long ago As january last count Berthoty the French minister hero informed Secretary sow fird that Maximilian had proposed to abdicate Mexico provided that Juarez would Eon veto tie constr Tuti Anar Assembly for the election of Quot a president of the Republic. The emperor was thereby willing to acquit so in a Republican form of government in. Mexico but desired a new Choice of the Assembly for Tho presidency. To was willing to pledge himself not to object if Juarez Vas chosen again. It seemed to be the Desiro of the French government to obtain the approval of this government to this proposition but or. Seward regarded such a step is. Nothing less than in interference in mexican affairs. How far his official efforts to Savo Maximilian a life will prove to be an interference remains to to seen when the official correspondence is Laid before con a Gress.
