Page 2 Col. #1 MEXICO "No patriotic citizen of the United States can look with indifference upon the events now transpiring in our sister Republic, Mexico. The impertinent interference of European powers in Mexican affairs, and the apparently successful attempt to force a king upon the Mexican people are well calculated to arouse our indignation.--If our own affairs were in a situation demanding less attention, it would certainly be our duty as a nation to resist to the utmost the encroachments of monarchy on this continent. Our attention has been more particularly called to this subject by the perusal of a speech delivered in New York by Senor Romero, Mexican Minister to the United States. In this speech we have given to us a better view of Mexican affairs than we have obtained from any other source. In a short time we hope to be able to republish Senor Romero's speech in these columns. Reports in regard to the movements of Maximillian are very contradictory. It is asserted that he will not attempt to ascend the Mexican throne; but we incline to the opinion that there is little ground for such an assertion."

Mr. Yates, Pastor of the Bench Street M. E. Church, was, the other evening, surprised by his congregation, with a present of $125." LOST "Last Monday evening, either at the United States Hotel, or in some store in this city, a pair of large fur gloves. The finder, by leaving the same at this office, will be suitably rewarded." DEATH OF A SOLDIER "On his way from Nashville to St. Louis, a soldier named Addison MEDLEY, died, leaving some money and his effects in the possessions of the Captain of the steamer J.H. Dickey. He is reported to be from this section of the country. The friends of the deceased soldier will learn where his effects may be found by applying to George R. MELVILLE, Galena." FIRE "About 2 o'clock, yesterday morning, a stable, near the jail, belonging to Sheriff HAWKINS, was discovered to be on fire. The stable, together with one horse valued at $200, a cow, a pair of harness and a large amount of grain were consumed. Total loss $600. No insurance. The horse which was burned was the property of Deputy Sheriff HOPKINS. Its mate was in the stable at the time the fire was discovered; but Mr. HOPKINS rushed in and led him from the stable by the halter, which being on fire, burned Mr. HOPKIN's hand severely. It was impossible to rescue the other horse and the cow. During the progress of the fire the bellowing of the cow, and the squealing and kicking of the horse were terrific. The rescued horse was a very valuable animal, but he was so badly burned that he will probably die. His head was in places baked to a blister, and his mane was entirely burned off. The fire was the work of an incendiary. Hanging is too good for a wretch who will deliberately set fire to a building for the purpose of burning animals alive." PERSONAL ---"Major FARNSWORTH is slowly recovering his health." ---"Mr. John McHUGH, teacher in the High School has during the last two weeks, been very sick with lung fever." ---"We are sorry to say that Lieut. POOLE recovers very slowly from the severe wound which he received four months ago. It will be a long time before he will be able to stand a hard march." ---"G. W. BROWNELL, Esq., of this city, returned home a few days since, from Mississippi, where he has rented a large cotton plantation, His plantation is buy a few miles from that of J. A. PACKARD. Mr. B., thinks the prospects are good for a large yield of cotton, the present year." ---"Mr. W. PELLETT, of Elizabeth, Deputy School Commissioner for this County, has just returned home from Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he has been during the past winter, attending a course of Medical lectures." ---"Mr. Geroge W, PEPOON, of Warren, Provost Marshal in General Whittaker's Brigade, arrived home yesterday morning. He will remain buy a few days." ---"D. J. BENNER, of Warren, of General Hurlbut's staff, arrived home Monday evening." ---"Brigadier General J. E. SMITH and Captain C. E. ROWAN, left this city last evening for the seat of war." SWORD PRESENTATION TO GENERAL GRANT "Mesrs. H. S. TOWNSEND and S.T. NAPPER, the committee on behalf of the Board of Supervisors of Jo Daviess County, arrived in Nashville just in season to present the sword ot General GRANT, before his departure for Washington. The sword was presented on Friday and the General left Saturday morning. The following is General Grant's response: 'Gentlemen: Permit me through you, to return to the Board of Supervisors and people of Jo Daviess county, sincere thanks for this beautiful and valued sword. Say to them that I accept it, not so much as a mark of esteem to myself, as an evidence of their devotion to their country, and their appreciation of the progress towards a final triumph, marked by the unbroken series of successes in every battle named upon it, from Belmont to Chattanooga, and i will use it in the maintenance of our nationality, liberty and law so long as the Government and armies repose confidence in me, and all armed foe to these exists. Say further to them that the support they have given me through evil as well as good report, has been to me a solace, and is remembered with gratitude, and that, as in the past the successes of the brave armies which it has been my fortune to command justified that support, so in God I trust, the continued successes of our armies in the future may justify its continuance.' Page 3 Col. #7 NIGHT REPORT REBEL DISPATCHES New York, March 22 ---"Lte. Commercial's Washington special says Gen. Hancock is summoned before the War Committee to-day to testify as to the management of the Army of the Potomac.

Grant will also have two corps under Burnside and Siegel."
