Sin with the indignation a Man Honor who has become the victim such a horrible calumny As that a Chiph has assailed me i have seen that men who know not what Havo been Tho True events and who Havo not oven cared to take Tho trouble to learn the truth persons knowing the same have sent to Tho european and american press reports that Aro false and absurd in every particular. It is easy for me to Correct Tho erroneous judgment my compatriots who Are the spot whore Tho events in discussion occurred but Public opinion in Europe and America cannot be so easily reached unless Tho press be just and impartial toward me. That you May give your decision in the matter i Send you a copy the manifesto i Havo published and which contains the Sim pie and Fajth record what has . I will con Fine myself at presen t , a a simple reflection that will convince you flip falsity the assertion which has been made. The european and american press suppose that like another Judas i sold the emperor in the midst his sleep. I merely wish now to state that Tho emperor was not taken prisoner in the Militi iry Post which i was the commander nor oven in the besieged City but at some distance beyond the town at the head his troops among which were 430 Good cavalrymen the Empress regiment drawn up in line Battle and surrounded by their generals and officers. Could not Maximilian with these forces and particularly with Tho Aid Tho cavalry have undertaken a Retreat How Coull it to supposed that to was sold betrayed i beg that you will take thorough cognizance my manifesto that you will a reflect upon the declaration i Havo made above and that you will do me perfect and entire Justice by exonerating me from the horrible crime imputed to to. Would you know the origin the report a taxing me with treachery ? it svs first circulated by two imperialist generals one Whon desired to conceal his guilty speculations that led Tho army to utter demoralization and ruin. The other in a moment intoxication and urged by a feeling revenge and by personal reasons concerning the military service explained the taking the City Tho evening the Mern Quot Oracle 15th Day May accusing me in presence Tho captive generals and chief having sold my Post to Tho enemy. Both knew that i had left my a lost by order Tho emperor for Tho purpose Parl eying with the besiegers and sought n that incident with Tho purport which they were Only partially a. Acquainted a pretext hat no one might become aware their own deeds. Be Jujj stat with me As conscience and truth exact acid i Pray accept the Assurance the consideration with which i remain your obedient servant. Miguel Lopez. Summary the defence Lopez. Tho pamphlet transmitted to us with the above epistle was published some time since in the mexican Monitor the Republic. The substance the narrative is As follows after the sortie the 1st a amp a matters grew very desperate with the Garrison at Queretaro. Provisions which had been scarce for some time were now altogether exhausted. Tho soldiers Wero reduced to eat horse flesh. There was no bread no eggs and the horses Tho Empress regiment had to be fed the bark the Ash. The Supply ammunition was almost at an end. Under these circumstances the troops became rapidly demoralized. Physical weakness infected their spirit and they Felt that their a position was continually becoming More desperate and untenable. Maximilian set a Noble example patience and valor to the men and the officers seconded him. When Marquez quilted men and resources he could get All he was Able to do was to gather together Somo 4000 men from the whole Mexico. What the end the siege would be was then Clear. Maximilian received neither i couriers no Newa he had no longer any Hope Succour. The soldiers Tho foreign legion for the most part French received communications from Many their companions who were in the enemy a ranks. From that moment All was a lost. It was under these circumstances that Maximilian the night Tho 14th May made tip his mind to treat with the enemy for capitulation Ond entrusted Lopez with Tho Mission. Lopez accordingly went to scope do and asked him to allow Tho emperor with the Empress suite and the Empress regiment to leave Mexico. Escobedoe a reply was that he had no Power to Grant this request and that Maximilian must either surrender at Dis erection fight. When Lopez returned to Tho Imperial quarters at Midnight he found that the horses were All saddled for depart rite that Maximilian had repeatedly asked for him and was now anxiously waiting his arrival. On hearing Escobedoe a reply Maximilian was evidently much disappointed. Preparations for flight had been made More than once and the enemy informed these preparations by deserters resolved upon a desperate move. Quot the night tha4th May quitting Maximilian Lopez engrossed As he says with thoughts about the Fate the army to go Quot the round the lines. On reaching the Gate la Cruz which to had enjoined his officers to Ratcli wit i Especial vigilance to was surrounded by a body officers and 1 men who put their pistols to his Throat. To at once recognized them As enemies and the Liuio him prisoner. Stupefied for the moment he could neither ii Glit nor flee. His captors taking him with them immediately made for Tho emperors quarters. To gain time and to warn Maximilian so that to might escape was then Lopez a Solo idea. He went therefore to general Velez and suggested that it would to Only humane to avoid shedding blood. Colonel Zabloski was charged to toll Tho emperor that to had just time to escape and Lopez cannot explain Why the colonel was so Long in discharging his task. At Daybreak Maximilian presented himself with some persons his suite soldiers various corps and Somo others. He was foot in Tho Street and followed very close upon Tho party who had made Lopez prisoner. Taking advantage a momentary confusion Anion Tho Republican soldiers Lopez hurried As fast As he could upon a bad horse to meet the emperor meaning to suppose though to does not say so to give him a hint his danger. Then. Lopez returned in the direction Tho soldiers. In proof hi��1 assertions Lopez appeals to Prince Salt Zabloski Rodillo . Blosk and Don Jose do Blasio who whore witnesses what happened. Lopez seeks to implicate some other imperialist officers in Tho treachery which surrendered Queretaro to Tho liberals. N a a x co crop a sports from be department agriculture. Washington sept. 29.�?Tho crop report Tho department agriculture for August and september is just issued. Tho reports for August give the general averages for Sev. Eral states. From approximate estimates crops then harvested As compared with those ofl80g, together with the current condition the growing crops while the september tables pertain chiefly to Tho state Tho fall crops. The returns show a uniform reduction Tho general average. \ wheat As compared with july figures and september estimates wheat harvested As compared Witlox Tho. Crops ,18g a drop the figures somewhat lower. In. A number tha states it is attributable to a considerable Quot tent to bad weather harvesting and to the fact that in going sections Tho Grain is to be found shrivelled and threshed out less to the acre than anticipated. The leading wheat growing states report the following per Centavo increase at the close the Harvest Ohio 130 Indiana 50 Michigan 33 Wisconsin 17 Minnesota 25 Hli Iowa 20 Missouri 40 Kentucky 34 Western Virginia go Virginia 50 Tennessee 40 Georgia 80 Arkansas 45 ,"14 and Pennsylvania 40. Only Kansas and Texas show a falling off from last year when Tho crops from these states were very Large. Returns duo october 1st will enable us to estimate with greater accuracy the amount the crop for the present year. A the prospects for com continues to improve and if the Frost holds off the general crop May to a fair one. While a number states return Low estimates others particularly the Southern states show a marked improvement Over Las year. Cotton promised Well up to september in it when Tho Worms were appearing arid Ucli apprehension was Felt in various sections for the safety Tho Cotton growing states. Extracts from correspondence show that Georgia promised a yield 53 per cent beyond the crop 1sg6 South Carolina 50 Alabama 42 Mississippi 24 Arkansas 18, and Tennessee 9 while Texas and Louisiana show a considerable falling off front last year. that Aro Well posted hero do not believe that there will to any considerable falling off in the crop this Stato from that last . Bulletin Rice Barley and Oats exhibit no material change from previous reports though Oats Ere seriously injured in some sections Lay Trio Treme wet weather during Quot Harvest but Gen a orally the crop appears to be Superior to that last year. Buckwheat shows a Good average with prospects a fair crop. Potatoes arc rotting badly. In Many the Large potato growing states the crop will probably fait below the yield last year. J the leading sugar producing states show a fair increase Over Tho crops last year. Sorghum is evidently Tho decline in most Tho states and Witlip sufficient reason. The crop now growing is in Good condition. In a few states Tho Appio crop promises Well but in a majority the crop will to from ten to forty per cent below the crop 18g l. Hay shows an increase in almost every state and quite Large in Money. Pennsylvania returning an increase fifty per cent. Wisconsin and Illinois Twenty eight per cent. Indiana Twenty Sis per cent. The average will reach from Twenty five to thirty per cent above the crop i860. The Wool clip will probably fall from five to ten per cent Short last year. It is attributable to the Severo weather last Winter and the consequent exposure and destruction a Largo number sheep. A a i. A. The Virginia state convention. Richmond va., sept. 25, 16g7.
