ediately after the holidays, in the flagship of the Gulf squadron, for the Rio Grande, and that Commodore Winslow has sailed in the Champion, vies New Orleans, leaving his flagship behind for the General. This is one of a class of a paragraphs sent from here from time to time, which, taken together, are intended to create an impression that the Lieutenant-General intends to go at once to the Rio Grande, with special reference to Mexican difficulties, and an ulterior purpose of driving Maximilian from Mexico. We have the best authority for saying that General Grant does not expect to leave here until he has progressed further in his work of re-organizing the army and decreasing it to a peace basis. Secretary Stanton, in his reply to a resolution of the Senate requesting him to report whether any person was employed by the War Department who has not taken the oath prescribed by act of Congress, says: "None have been employed except those who were appointed Provisional Gove

The pride and prestige of the French Emperor are to be saved by simply giving him an opportunity to withdraw his support from Maximilian, without menace from the United States, and with the understanding that the United States Government will leave Mexico to the Mexicans.--Baltimore Sun. The Chilian question. The remonstrances which the United States Government have, in common with other powers, made against the unjustifiable aggression of Spain upon Peru and Chili, seem to have had no effect.

Senor Hidalgo will go out in the French packet which is to sail from St. Nazaire on the 15th instant. It is very doubtful whether he will arrive in Mexico before Maximilian has taken his deparMaximilian has taken his departure, the probability being that both the Emperor and Empress will reach Europe before the ensuing new year.

The United States and Frances. Washington, December 29. --It is rumored that the French and the United States Governments have arrived upon an understanding.
