The invasion of Mexico.
--The French journals publish the following:
We are informed that the last dispatches received from Mexico
have decided the allied nations to adopt final measures as regards that country, and to occupy its capital until a permanent and regular Government is established there with the free consent of the population.
It is announced by a semi-official organ that France
will send to Mexico
a body of troops equal to that which was dispatched some time since to Syria
In fact, a regular campaign is proposed, if that name can be given to an advance against troops who will, no doubt, fly at the first approach of the invaders, and content themselves with pillaging and murdering their own unhappy citizens.
In the agreement between the Spanish Admiral
and the French Captain
of the Foudre, it was stipulated that, ‘"even after taking possession of Vera Cruz
in the name of Her Catholic Majesty, the Admiral
commanding in Chief the French
forces might, after his arrival cause a number of his troops, equal to those placed there by the Spaniards, to enter the town and fortress."’ So that it is plain the French
will not allow either England
to take a more active part in these proceedings than themselves.
