SENDING A THREATENING LETTER.

IHostility against France.

Hostility against France. There is no military news. You will be startled to find the President's confidential letter contains not one word about France. The knowing ones all understand that. There' is not one of the 100,000 workmen at the ship yards that does not know that his work goes to Mexico, or on the ocean. My own idea is, that war has been decided upon at Washington already, and that before many weeks the storm will burst, and France will find her hands fully occupied. Mexico-Milian is a wise Dutchman to postpone a year. His only chance of ever seeing Mexico is to hurry into it now, before our fleets reach Mexican ports. Before a year is over he will find that 600,000 Frenchmen with muskets cannot place him on that throne, or keep him there. The rebellion will not alter the "Monroe" doctrine. It will be fully maintained while we have a man or a dollar. Tens of thousands will go in for this war as soon as it is publicly announced, as hundreds do every day at the recruiting offices where they are quietly told Mexico is their desti- nation, and to fight Frenchmen. I should not be at all surprised if a declaration of war, or rather, the proclamation of the President, announcing z, that "war exists with France," should be made this month. I think that the 44,000 veteran troops now in this city will be embarked some Sunday morning for Vera Cruz in the fleet of 160 vessels quietly congregating here, and that certainly can have no use in any of our Southern ports. If the President should play that deep game, and go'to war with France, he will not need another man for this rebellion. States will quietly go on and elect con- gressmen, and resume relations with the Union with but few words, glad of the excuse that a war with France will give.
