Here ihe emperor bail been besieged by
tho Liberal forces, under Escobedo, for
sixty. nine days. He had bis headquar
ters in tho Convent La Cruz, which was
built by the Spaniards, and with its for
tifications covers neuily fifteen acres of
ground. It is a place ot great strengih,
and commands tho city and mail to
Mexico. It is so impregnable thai any
ono who gels possession, with a few Initio
dred troops, can levy contribution, and
cranio civil war. 'The first battallion of
tho line,' Maximilian's bust infantry, was
stationed in ihe Convent. E-cobedo hell
the mountain of Correias, just opposite,
and Ins 'Mipioiue power' battalion lay in
the valley t. ieeu. Starvation in the
garrison determined t ho Emperor to out
his way oul on ihu night ot tho 14th,
with three thousand infantry and six
hundred good cavalry, reach tho moun
tains, form a junction with Oliyera, who
was supposed to have two or three thou
sand Imperial troops, and get into Vera
Cruz, where ho could stand a long siogo,
have tho sea to bring supplies, and lake
him away when he concluded to leave.
Everj llung was ready. The enemy,
unsuspicious, had determined to give up
tho starving out plan, and attack the
garrison in force at sunrise. Corn was
scarce with tho besiegers, ond tho be
sieged had nono j but had for some time
been living on the flesh of starved hors
es, mules and dogs. Juarez was press
ing Jisooucdo to bring tho sie?'o to
close Corona taunted him fiercely with
want ol energy, and tho order of assault
had been given. Knowing nothing of
each others plans, Maximilian was to as
sault the Liberals at midnight and es
cape ; they to assault in tho morning.
Treachery spoiled the arrangement. Mo-
Jin was to defend tho city with three
thousand citi.nns. while tho Emperor
and his torco fought their way out.
Two hours before ho was to start, fifty
four pretended deserters, 1'iom the Lib

Chairman Union llcpublicau Exec. Loin,
PRESIDENTIAL BION3"lK VIRGINIA,
The Richmond Whig ot llio 17th inst.
prints a long leading article on tho situa
lion, which contains tho following sig
nificant passage : 'Iu closing this arti
cle wo would remark that party move
ments now in the South derive their sig
nigjuoo and importance trom their
reference to the Presidential election
It he live, and will consent to run, Gen.
Grant will doubtless bo llio next Presi
dent of the United States, and tho prob
ability is that all extremists, will support
Tho Whig also says that it wants 'no
firebrands or makeweights in the con
vention,' and urges its readers to vole
for liberal and pal riot io Ucpublicnis
when such present themsolves. This is
an indication of n marked change of
seiilinieut in certain quarters in Virgin
ia. A iihctat. prizo fight oecureil near the
mouth of Aquiu creek, Virginia, a short time
since between two 'biuisers' named Aaron
and Collycr. The fight was presided over by
a leiulinj; Democratic pnlillcl.ui ol' 1'hilailel
phin, named lihl. MoMullin, and continued
iitiout two hours and a half. Hixty-elj;lit
rounds were l'oui;ht, r.nd at tho closu of Ihu
last one Aaron was pronounced winner. The
Democuitic politician nliovo alluded to, noti
fied the press reporters present, that if they
mentioned his name In connection with the
light in their reports, lie would 'slice your
eiiis oirwiien I catch you in Philadelphia.'
The manner ol man he is, may bo seen from
his speech to the crowd ou tho occasion.
Here it is :
'These hyer boys have como bycr to fight,
and I have comu to seo 'em. I lilo to sue it,
nnd thay're going lo Ikdit on their merits, I
am chosen relereeand I'm goint; to caution
them liolh once when they make a mistake,
and after that I'll decide iigidnsl any man who
does it again.'
Ir Is already certain that Congress will re
nBscmblo in July. Ihu President has endeav
ored to prevent this by giving out that he
would convoke the Ihmsc a month later. No
intimations or positive assurances from him
on that subject can have any weight, because
nobody puts any confidence in them. Ho
docs not want Congress should come together.
Thai is iitiout Ihe last tiling he does waul.
Hut Congress has a duly laid on it, which it
cannot escape from It it would. Fortunately
it has no disposition to evade any just
responsibility. In the pies out iiilitiule
of public sen 11 in ant. It nny weh be
iinlicipati'd t at when Congress s mil lu as
sembled, it wil do its work quickly and with
the plainness d i nan led by llio Biuutioa.-

A mohni: n or two ago, ns a couple of
mechanics wore passing through the
Capilid Grounds, at an early hour on
their way lo their daily labor, they dis
covered a black snake lying on the board
walk. Tho men at once attempted to'
dispatch tho ugly customer, but his
snakeship escaped lo bis hiding place
under the boards. This is not a 'snake
story.' but sti icily truo. A black snake
is not very desirable in tho public
grouiKM, where so ninny porsons par
