The Mexican Question. The Washington correspondent of the New Yorlc Tribune, writing on the 5th inst., says :— "The rumour in., diplomatic circles in Wash- ington is that President Juarez is now in this city keeping the strictest incognito. He had several interviews with Mr. Seward, to-whom he is said to have unfolded a plan for the maintenance of the Republic of Mexico, and for driving the French Olltóflit. Juarez asserts that the vote of, the 226 notables represent merely the vote of a coterie, and that if, in conformity to Prince Maximilian's wishes, the nation is consulted, the verdict will be strongly republican. He represents the Mexicans as being ready, at any time to take up arms in z, I defence of their old "constitution and laws provided they are supplied with arms and money, and are sure of the support of theU nited States.. I am told that one of Juarez's projects is to open a sub- scription list in the principal cities of the Northern States, and to raise by this means an amount of money sufficient to resume hostilities against the French." The same correspondent also says that on the 5th of September another furious bombardment of Forts Wagner and Gregg by the enemy's fleet and land batteries took place. The firing was begun at daylight, and was maintained steadily until dark. That a Monitor was firing at Forb Moultrie, another assault on batts«jr Wagner expected at night, and that no further attack had been made, on brick-built Sumter, which had been held twenty days against all the efforts of the enemy's great guns by land and sea. Of 7,551 shots which have been fired at it, 3,459 have struck outside, and 2,130 inside, and the flag shot away fourteen times. He further says that on the 6th of September the bombardment of batteries Wagner and Gregg had been incessant for fifty-two hours. The noise of the cannonade was tremendous; that the enemy landed near Cumming's Point in barges, and assaulted battery Gregg, and that the assault was repulsed.
