Napoleon, Mexico, and recognition.

The Yankee papers are prodigiously exercised by the movements of the Emperor Napoleon. We publish what two of them — the Times and Herald--say on the subject, this morning. The Herald threatens to demolish France if she dare to hold Mexico and recognize us. It threatened to demolish her if she set foot in Mexico; but it has not done so. --The chastisement is postponed, it seems, until the rebellion shall have been crushed, and the Herald says it is almost crushed. It has told us the same thing very often before; but we are not crushed yet. The Herald is a poor prophet. Yankee Doodle cannot even conquer us, far less France and England.
