markable its it is art inf,:rence drawn by them
from that 'part of the note of the undersigned
most conciliatory in its character. In this note,
which was intended as aluere preliminary to
die opening of negotiations, it was desirable to
avoid all irritating topics. , For ihis.reason the
tango ige employed was : in //represent com
nzunication: it it..deemed needless, and it !night
prove injurious, to. discuss the ,causes of the
existing war. This might tend to d , -lag orde
feat the restoration of peace. The past is al
ready consigned to history; 'the future, under
Providence, is within our•oscn power." And
vet it is from this last' sentence, disconnected
from all which precedes it. that the Mexican
government have inferred a disposition on the
part of the government of the United States to
avoid, in the progress of the negotiation, the
discussion of the , questions out of which the
war originated. It is most certain that no such
disposition exists ; and the undersigned feels
assured that he need add nothing more to con
vince the Mexican government that, in this
particular, they hate placed an erroneous con
strnrtion on his language.
Conscious that in rn,king the nvcrore ur
peace he has performed his duty, the President
will now await with patience and with hope
the goal decision of the Mexican oovernment.
In making this overture thus early. he -
in no small th.gree influenced by the consido

The Slate's Dream
Beside the ongathezed net be lay,
-With sickle in his'haMl;
His 6r, at wu butt. his matted bait
Was buried in the and,
Again. in the mist end shadow of steep,
He saw his 'Lathe land.
Wide through the landompe of Ilia drums
The lordly Niger flowed ;
Beneath the palm-uree on the plein
Once more a king he strode ; •
And heard the tinkling caravan"
Descend the mountain wadi
He uw once more his dark4yed queen •
Among her children stand ;
They clasped hts neck, they kissed his chocks
They hell him by the band !
A tear bard from the sleeper's We
Anl fell into the and.
And then at furious speed be rode •
Along the Niger 'a bank ;
His bridle-reins were golden chains,.
And with a martial dealt.
A: each leap he could feel his scableandrafateel
• Satiting-Usstallion's flank.
3efore bim.likc )it blood-red flag.
The bright IlaniltTes flew ;
From morn till nigtd he-fill:owed their WA;
O ' er plains where the tamarind grew.
Till he saw the roof, of Cane huts, •
And the wean rose to view.
At night he beard the lion roar,
And the hyena scream.
And the Firer home, as he crushed the meds
Beside same hidden stream.
And it passed, !the a glorious roll of (blithe,
Through the triumph of his dream.
The forests, with their myriad tongues,
Shouted of Itbelly
And the Blest of the Desert !died atrad;
With a voice's» wild and free,
That he started io his sleep and smiled
At their tempedcenn glee.
He did not feel the dritet's whip,
Zicr the burning heat of day
For Death had ithund the Land ..d - Sieep,
And his lifeless body lay .
A worn out fetter. that the soul •
Has broken and thrown away.
