The Rumored Death of Nicholas of Russia.
If we are to believe the news brought by the
last arrival from England, Nicholas of Russia
has submitted to the common fate of all men.
There are some who doubt the report of his
death, circulated as it was in England just as
the steamer was about leaving Liverpool, with
out giving time tg confirm its authenticity or
to show its falsehood. The doubters class it
with the k ing rumors of the fall of Sehastopol
and the assassination of the Emperor of the
French, which, not very long since, had a short
currency among us. It is well, no doubt, to
withhold absolute credit from all rumors of an
important nature coming to us under such
circumstances till the proofs of their truth
arrive ; but it is proper to remark that the
death of Nicholas, at any time within the last
six months, has been much more likely to hap
pen than the taking of Sebastopol, or the
assassination of Napoleon the Third. If Nich
olas has not been out off, as is said, by a pul
monary apoplexy, the authors of the rumor
had the skill to choose for him the most pro
bable mode of death. A figure, which seemed
ready to burst from the tight garments in which
it was swathed, a short neck "an inflamed coun
tenance and glassy eyes, were premonitions of
apoplexy, which no one would be much surpris
prised at seeing fulfilled. The anxieties of the
great struggle in which the ambition to extend
his dominions had engaged him, first with
Turkey, then with France and England, and
next, one by one, with other European powers,
all of whom were likely to be drawn into the
league against him, must have wrought power
fully upon such a physical conformation. He
was born on the sixth of July, in the year
1196, and was, therefore, not very far from
sixty years of age, a time of life in which a
temperament like his is apt to give way under
strong physical or mental excitement. "lie had
embarked in an undertaking 011 which he had
staked the integrity of his empire, with all its
mighty resources, and which could leave him
no repose till he had either added European
Turkey, with its magnificent capital, to his
dominions or until he had seen some of his
fairest provinces wrested from him and his
empire reduced to a power of the second rank.
That he should l>e taken off by an npoplotic
stroke in flic midst of these projects and dangers,
is no more improbable in itself than that the
same thing should happen to a I'riinc Minister
If Nicholas has, in fact, departed this life,
his place is filled by Ins eldest son Alexander,
the hereditary Grand Duke, who was born on
the 29th of April, 1818, and is, therefore,
nearly thirty-seven years of age, a time of life
in which the character may be supposed to be
fully formed. His mother, a sister of the
reigning king of Prussia, is celebrated for the
gentleness of her disposition and manners, and
the beneficial influence she had through life
exerted over her stern and passionate husband.
•The son is said to inherit the amiable and
winning manners of the Empress. He is des
cribed as I>f commanding height, fat, and round
faced, looking rather like a German than a
Russian, his phvsiogomy expressing rather the
dreamy quietude of the German character than
the distempered and cruel energy of his father.
He married a German princess in 1841, and
has several children.
In what manner the Second Alexander of
Russia is likely to hold the reigns of govern
ment, and whether he will strictly follow the
jKiliey and endeavor to execute the plans of
his father, are questions on which it is almost
idle to speculate. Considering the age he has
reached, and the difference of temperament be
tween him and bis father, it would not be at
all strange if he nad his own views of the pro
per policy of the Russian government, and his
own circle of counsellors. Rut if this were so,
and if lie were somewhat inclined to liberal
I ideas, it does not follow these ideas will
I accompany him when he ascends the throne.
Many an heir to monarchy puts off his liberal
ism when he puts on the crown. If the here
ditary prince of Russia possesses the quiet
temperament ascribed to him, he will find it
easier to govern according to a system the
principles of which are already established
by a long course of precedents, anil the organi
zation of which moves smoothly in a beaten
track, than to introduce changes and try ex
For thirty years Nicholas has governed Rus
sia according to the strictest maxims of abso
lution. He has not l>een indiffereirt to the
civilization of his people ;on tlie contrary, lie
has desired to elevate the condition of the
humbler classers. but always in such a manner
as should consist with the preservation of all
the powers of the government, both nominal
and actual. He has desired to civilize the
country in such a manner as should exclude
the action of public opinion upon the gov
ernment, and prevent the people from ques
tioning the wisdom of its commands and the
propriety of obedience, even in their hearts.—
He has always regarded with a certain con
tempt the other governments of Europe in
which the sovereign finds himself sometimes
compelled to defer to the public will, as recog
nising two sources of power inconsistent with
each other, and as resting upon an insecure
compromise between despotism and liberty.—
In whatever he may have done to civilize his
people, he has allowed 110 partnership of indi
vidual co-operation; that the people, as they
must look to no other master, may also see no
other benefactor than the government. If his
reign has closed, the principle of absolutism has
lost its most rigid interpreter in the civilized
world, as well as the man who enforced it most
remorselessly, cruelly and ably.
Whether the heir of Nichylas is likely to be
swayed by his uncle of Prussia to more pacific
counsels than prevailed with his father, is a
question which gives some room for conjecture.
The Prussian monarch had no influence over
Nicholas, and even stood in awe of him. We
are yet to see whether his wishes, which are
supposed to be in favor of peace, will have any
effect upon the milder temper of his son.—

LATE FROM MEXICO. — BALTIMORE, March 18.
—The mail from the South brings us New Or
leans papers of Monday last, containing the
details of the advices from the city of Mexico
to the sth iust. The Heraldoof the 4th iust.,
says the insurgents were flying before Santa
Anna, aud that his presence in the South had
been sufficient to cause the most perfect rout of
the main body of the insurgent forces.
A letter from the Minister of War dated at
Ignala, March Ist, says Gen. Moreno had been
captured by Santa Anna, and would be execu

Government troops at I'iedro Gorda.

Is THE DEATH OT NICHOLAS A HOAX ! - The
Russian Minister at Washington has telegraph

the Czar Nicholas is an unmitigated hoax. It
may be that the Minister is right, and it may
be that he is wrong. We do not see how he—
residing in Washington—can know any more
of the matter than we in Rochester. The
Emperor has probably died since the last des
