THURSDAY MORNING, OCT. 22, 1863
MAXIMILIAN'S REPLY TO THE MEXICAN
RENEGADES-DESIGNS OF FRANCE UP
ON THE STATES-THE DEFEAT OF RO
SECRANS-THE MONARCHISTS AND THE
DEMOCRATS OF EUROPE-WHAT THEY
ARE DOING-JOURNALISM IN PARIS, &C.
Special correspondence of Patriot and Union
The winter is drifting upon France as upon
America; the leaves in the palace gardens lie
heaped beneath the Maroon trees; the floating
baths have vanished from the Seine ; the open air
balls are dark of the chill nights, and the season
of the vintage is passing by, We are cold in our
far-up chambers, and there is much rain to beat
us in the streets. I mean we "skedaddlers," the
sagest folk of this ere, who prefer a little privation
and much sleep in this poetical land, to a bivouac,
or a hospital bed, or a marshy grave, or doubtful
glory, with Meade, or Grant, or Roseerans. We
have a hope that after all this fighting, the men
who have been most obscure will be least unhappy
when the contest is done. Who, for example,
would be your man Roseerans now? Possibly he
has recovered prestige since the Arabia's dis
patches came in ; but the stories which we receive
from him are all of defeat. And some of the stock
speculators endeavored,after the telegrams arrived,
to run up Confederate scrip, in which they failed
signally. It was bulled up three per cont., when
the bears got it down and stamped on it. There
is a general impression in England that we are
serving the Confederacy as the bears served the
bonds, and nothing Confederate will be touched
there just now, either for love or profit. Without
feeling any great enthusiasm in the matter, I may
add that the North has obtained considerable mil
itary renown during the past three months, and
perhaps stands higher at present than at any period
of its history. Our perseverance has certainly
been marvelous, notwithstanding blundi ra and de
feats innumerable, but there are not probably a
half dozen men in Europe who do not expect us to
become bankrupt in a year. The South has, by
report, negotiated a loan in Paris, under the pat
ronage of the Emperor. Said loan is thought to
consist of a hundred millions of francs or $20,000,-
000—no very great amount, but enough to grant
Jefferson and his colleagues a voyage abroad and
e,rt indifferent income for several years. It is a
matter of great rejoicing here, among our evil
wishers, that the Conscription has succeeded badly.
What we are to do for men if the "nigger dodgef'
fails and the draft gathers together only an army
of greenbacks, passeth understanding. A small
sum of money might provide us with mercenaries
from Juarez; but after the White of your man
Franklin, the whipped battalions of the Mexican
President will scarcely make way in Texas. The
steamer which conveys this letter will also give
you the respose of the Archduke Maxamilian to
the wretched renegades whom French gold has
induced to make the long voyage from Vera Cruz
to Trieste, with an invitation to him to become
their Emperor. In that one-horse seaport; the de
scendant of Charles V. received these creatures
and their donation—a golden sceptre whereon two
eagles (France and Austria) were upholding a
crown and trampling a serpent. Ile replied to
their vapory harangue concisely, accepting the
throne with the concurrence of his brother, the
Emperor, but premising that he mast JIM be satis
fied that he teas the popular choice, and that the
whale Mexican peopte demanded the Empire, and
also that France should guarantee him protection
against internal and external violence. A thou
sand constructions have been put upon this ad
dress, some of which I cull for your benefit. The
London Horning Post of yesterday, Lord Palmer
goes organ, says :
"The issue to be left to their (the Mexican peo
ple's) decision, will in tffe.et be, whether in future
they will have a form of government equally sta
ble and respectable, or whether they will again set
up that reign of anarchy which has brought them
as a nation into disrepute, and has given their
territory over to the occupation of a foreign army.
The lesson which has of late been learned by the
Mexicans has been too bitter to make the result of
the impending election at all doubtful."
The semi-OffiCial organ of the French Emperor,
the "Oonatitutionnel, says:
"The latest advieea from Mexico announce that
the result of' the appeal to universal suffrage would
he shortly known, and that an immense tisejority
in favor of the re-establishment of the monarchy
and sovereignty of the Archduke Maximilian was
expected. Doubt is no longer possible."
The "Pays" says. in the course of a windy eu
logy of Imperialism;
"Every country which, by the aid of Francis, as
cap,a from the miseries or anarchy, and reconsti
tutes itself according to the spirit of the age, ex
tends at the same time the influence and relations
of France, and opens new channels for the spread
of her ideas, as well as for the development of her
The Nation ridicules the speech, and says that
"we shall see whether the eloquence of the depu
tation will succeed in removing the last doubts of
an honest conscience," alluding to the contingen
cies referred to by the Archduke, wherein he would
not become the monarch of the Mexican people s —
Th 9 democratic Seiele and the 0,11 lion Nationale
discourage the whole l!dexican enterprise, as they
have done from the arat ; for these journals are
vadically republican, and would, if they dared,
proclaim for .Tuartx and, against the imperial oct
pupation. A few days ago the Nowitilur, the
official organ, published a scandalous paper against
the republican administration of Mexico, charging
Juares with the murder of nearly six thousand
persons. The Parisian radical papers referred to,
venture in a body, to stigmatise those aoensatiOna
as lies, and allege the assassinations upon the
chore& and monarchical emissaries of Mexico.—
Indeed, public opinion, so far as the prints indi,
pate it, by no means backs up the Emperor in his
western projects. But public opinion, as it really
exists, is ignorant or careless of the object or the
issue. The Emperor has well-nigh crushed all
political independence from his people. The cafes
ate still as the grave, when one proposes contra.
vened topics. It is enough for the under strata to
know that the national arms have been successful
in a new and far-off field, and probably not one
man in a thousand, throughout Paris, knows that
Mexico is to be made an empire or that the Arch
duke Maxamilian had been offered the crown. It
seems probable to me that Maxamilian means to
till the place. His position at home is an inferior
one ; be belongs to an ambitious fatally, and is
himself said to be talented and resolute. It is not

probable that be will scrutinize either the manner
or the returns of the forthcoming ballot very ef
fectively. The election in Mexico will much re
semble that of France thirteen years ago, when
frightened property-holders took their one from a
million office-holders end soldiers, and raised the
empire upon the ruins of the republic. We may
expect the young Austrian prince to be our neigh
bor shortly, and it behooves us to ask, what shall
be our relations towards him? Are we, indeed,
greatly concerned about the establishment of a
monarchical government in our vicinity ? Or bad
we looked upon Mexico as ours, and grieve only
that it has fallen into other hands? I truly knave
that the mass of the Abolition party in America
had forsworn its republicanism, and prefers a
strong central government with a head holding the
powers of a king. Mr. Lincoln, indeed, holds such
privileges now. It is rash for his supporters to
object to imperialism in Mexico when they rally
around it at home. it must be from the Demo
craccy of the United States, those who cling to our
old Constitution and who do net mean to give up
an elective government in any event, that the
French occupation of Mexico will receive its death

be entirely free from European infisences. What
valor cannot do to weaken us, gold may accom
plish, and in the mutations which years may weave
in our afftirs, the Hapsburgere, ever alert for their
own advantage, may rise to be the dominant
power on our continent. It is the desire of all
who love free government, to see America, from
pole to pole, conserved for the republican idea.—

has two military enterprises on hand—one in Mo

Castilian blood without stint. The Spanish papers
say that we instigated the insurrection, and this

better look to this ? The Emperor is now in the
Bordeaux district, traveling with his boy, the
Prince Imperial. He is straining every energy to
secure said boy a plsce in the popular heart here,
so that he shall inherit the crown peaceably. The
Emperor is thought to strive for this end so ear
neatly that be has become quite timid of compli
cations with his people or with foreign powers, as
these might impair his own stability upon the
throne. The true secret t all this may lie not in
the man's fear, but in his caution, He is the most
astute of his tribe, probably the first sovereign of

chapters of eontemporary history to be recited in
the public llieees or schools, suppressing, of course,
the last sixty years relative to France. The other
day I went to the Ecole de Beata-arts to see the
prize paintings. They were tolerably fine, but I
have introduced the fact only to say that the grand
prize was given to a drafted man. Five years ago
a poor youth was drawn far a soldier. He wanted
to be a great painter, but the country preferred to
make him a consoript, lie threw himself inters,
tionally in the way of a wagon, was run over, and
wounded so badly that the surgeon pronounced
him incapable. That drafted lad got the first prise
for painting this year. I hope that no drafted man
at Harrisburg will go and do likewise.

EARTHQUAKE IN ENGLAND
The shock of an earthquake, more or lees
severe, was felt in all parts of England at
about twenty-two minutes past three o'clock
on the morning of the 6th inst. At some pla
ces the shock is represented as having been
quite severe, and accompanied by a loud
rumbling report, while at others it was slight
and without noise. No damage was sustained
The London Times of the ith devotes three
of its extended columns to reports of the "af
fair." One writer says : "It shook wardrobes
and washstands in my room, and lasted some
seconds." Another writes: "My bed shook
violently, the windows rattled, the furniture
shivered, and the whole house, which is usu
ally as firm as a rock, quivered from the hot.
tom to the top. My man, who sleeps in a dis
tant part of the house, tells me that the silver
was rattling for some time. It appeared as if
a sound of a heavy explosion beneath the cel
lars accompanied the second shock, but that
may have been a delusion."
From Worcester a correspondent writes :
" The shock was of so violent a nature as to
awaken people from their sleep, and to rattle
chairs, glass and furniture audibly. It is de
scribed by some persons who were awake at
the time as having been accompanied by a
rumbling noise, while others say they awoke
by what appeared to be an explosion. At
Great Malvern the windows of the Imperial
Hotel, a very large and massive building at
the foot of the Malvern Hills, were violently
rattled, and it is said that 0139 or the railway
signals was displaced. Servants ran down
stairs in affright, and general consternation
appears to have been felt.
"In the town of Dudley the shock was most
severely felt, beds being violently shaken, and
in some instances doors burst open, crockery
ware broken and clocks stopped. In kietaaked
buildings in various parts of the town the ef
fect is described as being most terrifying.
The shock wee followed by a rumbling sound,
similar to what would be experienced by per.
sons sleeping immediately over a tunnel as
trains were passing. Many inhabitants lest
their beds and congregated in the street, dis
cussing the extraordinary phenomenon."
The Manchester Guardian says of the shock
in the hlidland counties :
A policeman on duty in a suburb of Wol
verhampton says, that although the air was
perfectly calm the surrounding trees were
shaken and their leaves rustled. Ire - was also
much alarmed at seeing a wall vibrating near
to him. Wrottlesley Hall, the seat of Lord
Wrottlesley, was shaken throughout and .the
inmates alarmed. This was also the case at
Teddesley, the residence of Lord Hatherton.
In the game preserves pheasants were ob
served to become alarmed as they usually are
during the raging of a thunderstorm. As a
rule, watch-dogs were not aroused ; but there
were cases in which they barked loudly.. At
Stourbridge some bottles containing sweet
meats were shaken from a shelf in a shop win
dow ; and at Kinver, in the same neighbor
hood, the bells in a house near to the church
were set ringing."
Mr. Charles Dickens describes the sensation
he experiences :
He says that he was awakened by a violent
swaying of his bedstead from side to side, ac
companied by a singular heaving motion. It
was exactly as if some great beast • had been
crouching asleep under the bed and shaking
itself and trying to rise. The shock appears
to have been felt the most in the Midland and
and West Midland counties. It extended to
Bristol, to Taunton, to Exeter, to Swansea and
to many miles out at sea. In some places a
deep rumbling noise was heard. At Notting
ham the noise resembled the sound of a heavy
carriage approaching. The phenomenon at
Hereford is minutely described by the clergy
man of Stratton. He says the sound at first
increased with a gradual crescendo for two or
three seconds, until the crash was felt, which
lasted for one second and a half, and consisted
of two concussions, and then subsided as grad..
tinily for some seconds, until it died away in
the distance. It appeared to equal the loud
est peal I ever heard, but it was fuller and
deeper and greater than thunder. In about
three minutes afterward, a second faint rumble

A.Lilmnr, October 20, 1803. $
The President of the United States has
called upon me, as Governor of the State of
New York, to furnish the quota of 500,000
men to recruit the volunteer forces of the Uni
ted States, which will be largely reduced du
ring the cowing year by the expiration of the
terms of enlistment.
At this time the defences of the National
Capital are menaced by ii superiorforce, the
Army of the Cumberland is in an imperilled
condition, and the military operations of the
Government are delayed and hindered by the
want of adequate military power, and are
threatened with serious disaster.
In this emergency it is the duty of all the
citizens to listen to the appeal sent forth by
the President, and to giro &Went and cheer
ful aid in filling up the thinned ranks "of our
It is due to our brethren in the field, who
have battled so heroically for the flag of our
country, the Union of the States, and to• up
hold the Constitution, that prompt and volun
tary assistance should be sent to them in this
moment of their peril. They went forth in the
full confidence that they would at all times re
ceive from their fellow-citizens at home a gen
erous and efficient support. Every emotion of
pride and patriotism should impel us to give
this by volunteering, and cheerful contribution
of men and money, and not by a forced con
scription or coercive action on the part of the
Government. The President also advises the
citizens of the United States that, in the event
of the failure to raise the quotas assigned to
them ,a draft shall be made for the deficiency,
to commence on the fifth day of January next..
Not only does duty to oor soldiers in the
field, and the honor of the nation demand, that
we shall continue to fill our armies by volun
teer enlistments, but the interests of all classes
in society will be promoted by the success et
The unequal burden which conscription un
avoidably infliets on a portion of society, net
only causes great distress and injury to indi
viduals, but one more hurtful to the whole
community than the equalized distribution of
the cost and sacrifice of volunteering, which
