The Kmperor has been talking very pomp
niisly about' intervention in American iif
Hilrs. Prohnhly it would be well for him
,to pet his Mexican contract off his hand;
before he invests very largely in American
bombshells, lie "had lietter show his iibil

lie won't make up his mind In intervene in
American affairs, because the honor ol
whipping n nation cotwlanlly dtfalcd b
the Mexicans, would, lo say the least, b
a lilt'e doubtful.
