Mr. Lincoln says he will not stop the war

On the other hand, judging
from the following Washington dispatch,
there will -be ihe most cordial relations be
tween France and the United Stale should
Lincoln be re-elected. The two imperial-
ista will barmoaize admirably. The Wash
ington dispatch says :
"It is surmised in diplomatic circles that
a minister Irom ihe Government of Maxi
m.l.an is already here. I have it from on-
doubled authority, and I challenge contra-
diction, that an agreement has been made
between Mr. Seward aud the French minis-
ter, ihat the subject ot recognizing the Mex -
cat. empire, and an mtercnange 01 minis-
ter shall not be agitated till alter the elec

minister ibat as soon as Mr. Lincoln is again
elected, the Government ot Maximilian
shall be acknowledged by the United S'a'es.

who was entrusted with a large amount of
money with which to aidin carrying the
I recent elections, bas failed 10 account lor
the disbursement of .about one hundred
