Tlie news from Mexico to the
8th inst., represents the rebellion as
still nncrushed. The Government
has gained advantages in the State
of Uticrrara, but the larger half of
the States of Ptiebla and Vera
Cruz were in the hands of tlie
1 'evolutionists. Domiiigurzar, the
1 tevolutiotmry Commander, was iu
the State of Vera Crux It is gen
erally believed that Gov. Felix
Diaz, whose body was brought to
Pachulta on the 23d ult., was
assassinated. Juarez is gradually
increasing his powers into a Dic
tatorship. It is reported, says the
telegram, that lie has applied to
President Grant for assistance, and
that Grant replied that he would
support Juarez as a last alterna
tive. The number of revolutionists
now iu the field is estimated at 30,
000, the largest ever in arms. The
bulk of the federal forces are con
centrating in Gunaguato and in
the Capital. Tlie revolutionists
have captured Aquaz. A plan is
proposed for Juarez to retire or
resign and permit Mejia, his Minis
ter of War, to assume the Presi
dency. A largo force of revolu
tionists was marching on Guada

duction, the surplus of which now
finds its way into European mark
ets, such as corn, cotton and wheat,
would accumulate on producers'
hands, and prices be affected accord
ingly. It is true our privateers
would sweep tlie seas, and English
commerce would suffer nearly, if
not quite, as much as our own ; but
privateers could not protect our
norts fivnn' blockade bv English
men-of-war our coast commerce
from entire destruction. Oregon,
for example, would have to detend
our overland transportation, as no
shipments could be made safely
from Portland to San Francisco, or
vice vena. The influence of such
a war, then, from a financial stand
point, would Ire evil and that con
tinually, increasing the burdens of
taxation and interrupting the pro
gress of public improvements. Such
a war, however, would prove most
injurious to those ideas of progress
ive thought and civilization, which
are now at work among na
tions, moulding intelligence and fra
terirty. The United States ami
Great Britain arc nearly allied in
thought, language, sympathy and
interest, and rank first in tlie march
of progressive civilization. Their
example is most potent upon the
destinies of other nations. War is
always demoralizing, being the out
growth of passion. England is a
powerful nation iu war, so is the
United States. The courage and
fierceness of the two peoples will
increase with the resistance, and the
contest will become most sanguin
ary and bloody, developing a
thirst for blood and revenge in pro
portion as this prevails. In this
ratio, too, will deterioration iu the
march of civilization be experienced.
We would not countenance peace at
the expense of our national honor;
but let there be prudence, delibera
tion, wisdom, justice; these four ex
ercised, then if war comes, we will
not be iu the wrong.
A Democratic journal in this
State says that it does not doubt
that Gen. Grant's education is de
fective, as "it is well known to
everybody that be never learned to
decline." This tremendous strain at
witticism suggests to our mind some
pertinent facts. While Grant has

This winter has Ireen prolific in
severe storms in different parts of
tlie country. On Tuesday of last
week a terrible storm visited Iowa,
in the region of .Sioux City. The
weather at six o'clock in the after
noon was mild and pleasant, when,1
without a moment's warning, a
storm came on which raged with
great fury. Tlie wind blew a
hurricane, prostrating the telegraph
wires in every direction, and doing
damage to buildings. The ther
mometer fell forty degrees in two
hours, the weather becoming very
cold. All the trains on the wes
tern division of the Illinois Central
were snowed iu, and it was feared
that the suffering and loss of life
would exceed that caused by any
previous storm. Mr. Samuel Elban
was known to have frozen to death
on his way home iu the storm.
Other deaths were reported. At
last accounts tho weather stood
eighteen degrees below zero. The
same storm extended over the en
tire North and West At Chicago
the thermometer fell five degrees

Tho latter require better treatment
