Indence Indian a Tinell while dining if the Neil House in Colum by Ohio few Days ago a prominent politician of the democratic persuasion came into the dining Hall with a Friend and Urey were shown seats at the same table at which i was sitting. Being acquainted we passed the compliments of the Day and gradually fell into an animated conversation relative to men and politics and your correspondent feeling a Little Axiotis As to the "p.p. 8&Quot opinion As to who would be the democratic candidate for the presidency in 80, asked Quot who do you think will be the candidate of the democratic party in 80, Tilden Hendricks Thurman or a Well who Quot after readjusting his Napkin and Cooling his Interior with a Glass of water he replied Quot Well i am no Prophet but then i have my opinions you know. The democratic party has plenty of Good Timber from which to select a Standard bearer and in this is the party Superior to the Republican which has at present but few pronounced leaders and they not All above reproach. In the nominating convention Tbs re will be a contest i believe Between Indiana and Ohio. In reply to a question As to what would become of Quot new York candidate the Quot a. P Quot said Quot i suppose you refer to Tilden. He will make a Strong fight and it behoves the other candidates to work Early and late. He will have new York with her thirty five votes to stand by him and will capture those Eastern states not gobbled by Quot so you think the contest will be Between Thurman and Hendricks that the people do not want Tilden As their candidate again Quot just Here another gulp of water and then came Quot i think Quot How about the second place on the ticket Quot your correspondent queried. Quot that depends upon the Choice for the first place. If Thurman gets the nomination Bayard will in All probability get the second place if he desires it. He is a very i popular Man East not so much so in the West because of his hard Money proclivities. If the Choice of the convention should be or. Hendricks some Southern Man will be placed on the ticket with him. I am inclined to believe at present that the democratic party headed by Thurman and Bayard can increase the majority of two Hundred and fifty thousand in 76 to a round half million in 1880.&Quot general the Friend who had. Up to this time been an interested listener remarked that the democratic a tarty had better put their Best Man to the front for in ail probability the Quot Man on horseback Quot Gen her complexion was Meriden in Ink of exposure to Sun and rain which it waa known she disregarded in the performance of her duties either of state or Charity. Repose was the Predo Mineno expression of her face and form. Seating themselves on a sofa and requesting me to he seated the emperor asked Many questions in relation to the state of affairs in the United states the foreign policy of the government and the Trade and Commerce of the country. At length the Empress who was sitting nearest me asked if any obstacle existed in the United states to the rec Ogai tion of the Imperial government. I did not wish gravely to discuss politics with a lady particularly As i could give her no Hope and therefore treating the subject playfully i answered in these words Quot yes your majesty i will Tell you frankly there does exist in the United states an obstacle to the recognition of the Quot and what is it Quot she asked. Quot Why your majesty it was born of timidity but i fear it is now the child of arrogance. It is also a thing of air. For it is used by the contending political in the United states As shuttlecock the politicians being the performers Aud the people the spectators and it is kept up with sure Rilang skill and Pertinacity lest it fall to the around and the losers in the game thus displease the Quot what can it be she asked again. Quot your majesty it is the Monroe doctrine a the shuttlecock of politicians she comprehended at once. Turning to the emperor she suggested that the usher be dismissed and that i should introduce my compatriots remarking that it would relieve the interview of the stiffness and formality which might be embarrassing. Bowing my assent 1 brought in my friends and presented them. After a warm reception Maximilian addressed us in the following words Quot gentlemen you have a great War in your country. It has been a War of giants. The world Lias looked upon it aghast. You of the South have lost and your misfortunes Are so great that they make you the Brothers of All honorable men throughout tie world. As a brother therefore i receive you. I am to learn that some of you intend to remain in Mexico. I Welcome you cordially but up Ltd two conditions first that you obey this country s Laws and second that you will not interfere Vith politics either Domestic or foreign. It May seem natural to you that i should receive such War worn veterans As you Are into my military service and thus secure my throne. But this can not be. After the most mature reflection both at Mir Amar and in Mexico i have arrived at the conclusion from which i will never vary that no government of whatever form can exist permanently in Mexico which fails to win the Good will of the government and people of the United states. Under present circumstances your appointments to military positions in this country would give just cause of offence to your government and people and therefore you must not expect Oral u. S. Grant would be the nominee of i but i will Avail myself with great pleas the Republican party and proceeding said Quot he will carry almost a solid South in the convention because the Southern republicans think they have been sold out by Hayes and Are conscious of the fact that their death Knell is being sounded by the very persons they placed in Power. If Grant whom they have tried and found to be a iii nil indeed can again be placed in the White House they believe that their Lucky 3"ar will once again to in the ascendent and that Fortune will once More smile upon them. In the North he is looked upon by a ure of the services of such of you As Lucy remain Here in order to introduce into the country the admirable Public land system of the United states and your system of immigration. This is the policy of peace. This was the policy of my predecessor. This will make Mexico Rich and prosperous for herself and valuable As a neighbor to the United slates and this can give offence to he was quite relieved when he was informed that we had predetermined at Monterey not to enter the military service of either party.

The Greenback theory was incubated in Ohio and but two or three years ago was feelingly spoken of As the rag baby but now it has grown from Babyhood to Man s estate and is the leading question at Issue. The to quieter was its godmother by whom it has been carefully nursed and to Day that paper stands Back with shaded eyes As it were and exclaims what a Noble Man Here in Ohio and in several other of the Estern states the platform of the demo Ratic party is so a arly like that of lift it nationals that by new party to shift a in then we converts to the Greenback arty will be from the republicans in this part of the country but in the East where the platform of principles Laid Down by both parties Are so at variance with the National doctrine both of the old organizations will suffer heavy loss for the movement is making great Progress in new England.

Maximilian and Carlotta. Good sense and practical views of the Imperial rulers of Mexico. The country was almost entirely under the control of Maximilian at the time of our arrival in the City of Mexico. The Imperial troops were victorious everywhere. Juarez was at Chihuahua retreating toward the Rio Grande. Escobedo and the robber Cortina were at Matamoros within a Stone s throw Texas. Yuca an was Imperial and All the people to cognized Maximilian except a Small number in Michoacan and Sotoro and a few predatory ban iau having carried of Sequest rating a property had exc Aud Church party Carlota and a Chan ing taken place the i Power.

Captain Maury issued necessary notices and made arrangement for carrying the designs of the government into practical effect. I employed some Hundred surveyors and prepared the lands for occupation.

Philadelphia times in company with several other Confederate officers i arrived in the City of Mexico after a journey of some 1,300 Miles principally on horseback weary and worn ill Clad and scantily supplied with Money but we slept in peace and Security for the first time for four Long years. The Relief from the cares Aud responsibilities which had pressed upon us so incessantly during the whole of Titis period was inexpressibly grateful. Our thoughts reverted not to the past nor wandered to the future. Repose and Tranquility were All we asked. Being refreshed by a few Days of rest i represented to the principal Confederate officers the propriety of calling to our respects to the emperor and Empress. This was at once assented to Aud having communicated our wishes through the proper Channel to the emperor a Day waa appointed for an inter Riew. Our nearly worn out unit coma by ing exchanged for the Plain dress of american , we proceeded to the ancient Palace of the Montezuma now renovated and superbly furnished and were shown into an Ante room to await the summons of their majesties. As i with Many others bad become familiar with the Palace 18years before when the american army held Possession of the City i Felt quite at Home Here. In a few minutes an usher m uniform appeared and said the emperor desired to see my alone. I entered the Hall of reception and was presented to the emperor and Empress who were standing at the further end of the room. The emperor seemed to he about 34 years old. Tall and commanding in stature his person was a Model of Manly Beauty and his face denoted greater strength and firmness than i had expected from the photographs i had seen of him. The Empress was also tall beautifully formed and Graceful in the highest degree. Her dark Brown hair and Long Black eyelashes veiling Lustrous Eye of Gray seemed to deepen the melancholy exp Reabion other face. Her few Tuturea Wera clearly deft Nad and cd Aasc in Tettz Pitnu. put a twp tinning parallel with the Gulf coast almost to Texas commanding the Gulf on the one band and the Mountain passes into the Interior of Mexico on the other. Could Maximilian have retained his government Mexico by this simple Means would have been completely regenerated. He would have aided in giving her a Republican form of government suited to her interests. She would have enjoyed real Liberty and , and would have become either a valuable neighbor to the United states or an integral part of the Union. At this time toward the close of the year 1865, the internal improvements of Mexico were rapidly progressing and i had several interviews with their majesties. They seemed never to tire of the subject of the United states and i think Maximilian had some idea of visiting this country himself or of sending Carlotta to represent his views for one Day after a Long conversation in relation to the United states the Empress exclaimed Quot of How i should like to make a tour through your country Quot and Maximilian said Quot and i should like it greatly. Do you think general there would be any danger in my doing by Quot i was about to say no at first but then answered quickly Quot yes your majesty there is great danger in your visiting the United Quot what is it Quot he asked surprised. Quot Why Quot i replied Quot if your majesty were to visit the United states there is great danger that with your Liberal principles you would be sent to Congress Quot he laughed and said prophetic ally Quot perhaps a much madder ate awaits me indeed so thoroughly did Maximilian prove himself american in policy and sympathy that the United states could not have had a More faithful representative of her interests than Maximilian himself envoy extraordinary from the government of the United states to Maximilian emperor of Mexico.
