It may here be prOinised that France,
as,will appear from. the circumstances
hereatterrelated,has pursued an equiv,
()Cal course; ollowing a line of - policy
that she pretended to ignore, and that
she has actually deceived the world.

This lormidable alliance, although un
aupported by any great display of mil

oven had the Mexicans been united
and in pcissession of it stable govern

after the arrival of the enemy on their
shores they endeavored to effect by
negotiation a settleindiit the
culties existing—between themselves
and .the invaders: The convention

Spain the action of the convention was
.satisfied. FranceAissented and .the
Alliance was dissolved. Here we, be
to perceive the inconsistency in
the course' of the latter. With her
