WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPT. 2, 1863.
TEN 41.NXICAN PROBLEM
From the Boston Cost
Napoleon has declared a monarchy for the
Mexican people, and nominated Maximilian,
the !brother of age Emperor of Austria. and
09n-in-law of the King of Belgium, as Empe
ror in the halls of tbe Montezuma,. Gen. Fo
rey selected a superior committee of thirty-five,
and this committee selected two hundred and
fifteen, to form a council of notables, and this
council proclaimed the Empire. To'make this
beautiful little roundabout cotnedy—or tragedy
—short, Napoleon 111. has appointed Maximil
ian, of the House of Hapsburg, 'to be Emperor
of Mexico. The Mexican people, notwithstand
ing the select committee, and the council of
notables, had nothing to do with the play-
Have we any indications that the Mexican
people have consented, and will consent to
this ? Let us see. Forey has had to fight his
way to Mexico. Therefore there was certainly
the element of opposition which had to be over
come by the sword before the city of Mexico
could be reached. In a direct line to that city
from Vera Cruz, the people are conquered, and
thernow make a show of acquiescence ; where
money had bent freely distributed, or where
fear, or policy dictated, under the immediate'
mouths-of French cannon, they make a show
of rejoicing at the news of the New Empire.—
But we do not learn that this was the case in
the other portions of that great Republic. The
select committee and the council of notables
acted as prisoners of war, and not as free men.
The Mexicans made a noble resistance with
arms,- and it is a wrong to human nature to
suppose that, SO Sun, they have been recon
ciled to the will of their conqueror. Prance .
mar claim that the Mexicans are enthusiastic
in accepting an alien Emperor, but they should
remember that, forty years since, 'when the
last Empire was proclaimed, "Long live Au
gustin I," was said to be the "universal cry of
the army and the people." But this Emperor
of the people was beheaded after a reign of a
few months, as a traitor to his country. They
km! in Mexico as well as in Paris how to de
capitate kings. Juarez made a determined de
fence to Forey ; but was he sitiale•handed ?
By no means '
• he bad soldiers gathered up
from several of the different States, apd these
men fought well and died; and have the
friends of this army consented to be ruled by
an alien Emperor ? Mr. Corwin one year since
wrote to Mr. Seward, and stated that "never
were the Mexicans better united in any scheme
whatever than now in opposition to foreign in
tervention." He also averred that "Almonte
was evidently the agent to subvert the present
government add establish in its stead, a more ,
arohy more or less absolute, having for its
representative some European prince. The
idea of- a foreign potentate is rejected by a vast
majority of all parties." It wa s the buainess
of Mr. Corwin to study the opinions of the
Mexican people; and he undoubtedly studied
and reported them correctly. Even two were
found in this Council of Nobles, ereated by
and dependent on the breath of Foray, who
dared to vote against this usurpation. A greater
part of the country is now under and acknowl
edge the authority of Juarez, and Forey has
Supp-te,4B'idlhf papers so that news not ap
proyedhy him shall not disseminate ibloorig the
people. Of course they are not instructed of
radical changes, and cannot form ideas and
purposes so as to make a basis of united oppo
sition. again, why has not Forey submitted
this matter to the people if he desires the free
expression of their sentiments? if what is re
ported is true, that the people rejoice under an
Emperor from the House of Hapsburg. Men
made by his hands, under duress, have pro
claimed what he told them to prooleine and
this is reported se the elegant of the people:-a
Even the vanity of Paris will not accept this
as any security for the permanence of the new
empire. Gen. Prim, the Spanish General coin
' mending a corps of the army in the first of the
invasion, wrote to Napoleon, Marsh 17, 1862,
and expressed. the profound conviction that
there were very few men of monarchical Ben:
timents in Mexico ; that it would be compara
tively easy to conduct a prince to the capital
and crown him a King, but the new ruler would
find no support but conservative leaders who,
when in power, never thought of establishing
The conclusion is forced upon us, that Mex
that no party in Mexico aside from Al
monte and a few of his adherents, have con
sented, or will consent, to a voluntary recog
nition of the new Empire. If it is maintained,
it will be maintained by force of arms. • France
must fight the Mexican people if she would
secure the integrity of the new throne to Maxi
milian—who doubts, also, but that they would
have to fight the United States?
Has Napoleon acted absolutely alone in this
movement ? Let 178 see as to the probability_
The Archduke Maximillian is the oldest brother
of the Emperor of Austria ; is a son-in-law of
Leopold, of Belgium; Queen Victoria is niece
Of the Ring of Belgium, and cousin to the wife
of Maximilian; and his wife is grand-daugh
ter to the ex-Queen of the French. It is cer
tainly unreasonable to Suppose that the Em
peror of Austria was not coesulted before Na
poleon would nominate Maximilian to the
important position ; it is improbable to sup
pose that Leopold did not know of, and consent
to this elevation of his son-in-law ; and equally
out of the natural course of human events to
believe that Victoria did not know of this new
Empire for her cousins. Napoleon, by title
nomination, gains the consent, if not the ad
herence of England; Austria, and Belgium.
This is certainly a formidable array of power,
but the selfishness of human nature in general,
of monarchs in particular, is such, that no
great reliance can be planed upon the alliance
of these confederates in crime. What support
Napoleon may get here in his scheme, is not
yet absolutely evident. England. at least the
Protestant people, will not care to build up
Catholic Empire for their natural enemy,
France, in Mexico. The only reason that
Spain could give for adherence, would be the
sustainance of the church party; and this
would be the reason why England would not
eo.eipera . e. E ng l an d does not love the ultra
montane church, and there is no reason:why
she should throw a slice to Austria and the
Pope and gain nothing in return.
The only theory that will cause England to
co. operate, is the hope or the destruction of
the Great American Republic. Ecclesiasticism
and the love of power may hold a party with
Almonte and Napoleon in Mexico. France, Aus
tria, and Spain. but England will adhere, if at
all, to punish the American people , for preen.
ming to achieve a national success rivaling her

THE SUEZ CANAL
in an article on the Suez Canal, which we
copied from the London Times, the statement
was made that this work was "an undertaking
that Egypt herself had never dreamed of in
its long sleep of ages." , If the meaning of
the remark being confined to a few centuries,
or to the strict line of the canal from the Med
iterranean to the Red yea, this may be left to
stand as conlect. But the expression is liable
to misinterpretation, since it May lead some
readers to the idea that Egypt never imagin'ed
a connection of the waters of the Red sea with
those of the Meditterrancan" by 'egad. The
ancient Egyptains actually accomplished that
feet, and the • modern Egyptains, within the
period of the Mohammedan government, have
navigated in the same boat the waters of the
Mediterranean, the Nile and the Red sea.
The origin of the canal which connected the
Nile with the Red sea is somewhat obscure.
Ancient writers ascribe it .to different mon
archs.' Herodotns, in the Uterpe (clviiL) tells
no that Rem, the son of Peammetichus, com
menced it, and that Darius, the. Persian, MA'
tinned it. He describes its magnitude and
length. It would take in two triremes abreast,
and its length - was a four days' voyage. Dio
dorm gives the same account, adding that
Ptolemy II finished the canal, and that it was
called the Ptolomman riper from this fact.
Herodotns says that in the prosecution of this
work under Necos no less than 120,000 Egyp
tians perished, showing that Canal digging in
ancient times in Egypt was conducted in much
the same way as now, with not dissimilar. re
sults. Other writers ascribe the canal to Se
aostris instead of Pharaoh Nacho. But Sesos
trio was to a certain extent a mythical charac
ter to foreigners, and they were in the habit
of ascribing all great works in Egypt to his
genius, and all ancient conquests by Egyptians
to his arms.
The canal Was kept in use for many centu
ries, and though from time to time closed by
the sand, was again re-opened and used. The
Romans kept it flowing for some time. It
again ceased to be navigable, and then was
opened by Omar the caliph, who heard that
Arabia, the Moslem's holy land, had been
saved from famine by supplies of grain brought
from , Egypt through this canal, and who ac
cordingly as a pious work, re-opened the canal,
and from that feet received the title of the
"Prince of the Faithful," which became the
title of all the caliphs, his successors. A lit
tle more than a century later, El Mummer, the
caliph who founded Bagdad, closed the canal
to prevent its use for the supply of Ali, who
was in revolt in Amnia. It bus been said that
the crazy caliph El Hakim opened it again
about A. D 1000; but this is doubtful, and it
may be said to have remained closed since the
c l ap o f El m o nsooe, 'When the modern Suez
canal was projected, the eubjeet of supplying
water to the workmen in the desert presented
itself as of paramount importance, and the re
opening of the ancient Ptolommart canal for
that purpose was manifestly the only feasible
method. This is no small work, for the old canal
is filled up nearly to the level of the desert in
most places. The design of M. Lesseps in
cludes, we believe, little more than the open
ing of a trench through which a secure flow of
water may he expected. both for the use of the
laborers and .the OncourngeMODE Of agriculture
on the Isthmus. The Nile canal will probably
not be navigable except for small boats, and
not for them to any great extent.
When we consider the peculiar experience
of Egypt in canal excavation, we need not be
surprised at the accomplishment of this grand
work. The modern world has indeed little to
boast of in the magnitude of works , of art over
the anOient. Egyptians. Canals were their spe
ciality. They bad a country perfectly level,
which requited irrigation. To accomplish this
they needed to dig wattle, which should con
s the water of the Nile from the bed of the
river to the edges of the plain under the desert
hills. The river being given to floods and re
cessions, the canals must be very deep, so as
to allow of the flow of the water at low Nile.
Hence they were accustomed to the work of
di g ging broad canals, not less than eighteen

in the idea of building vessels on the Bed Sea

time ; and this supposition may relieve a great
difficulty which commentators have found on
the subject of the location of the Tarshish of
