A great deal of correspondence between France and America about

Mexico has been published this week, and the general drift of it is this. The Government of Washington persists in applying to that of Paris for the redress of Mexican grievances, and M. Drouyn de Lhuys replies that Mexico governs herself, and the Union must seek redress from Maximilian. The French Government would willingly withdraw its troops, provided that Mr. Johnson by re- cognizing the Emperor of Mexico abandons the idea of directly attacking the new monarchy. This condition Mr. Seward distinctly refuses to accept. It seems certain that Napoleon will withdraw as soon as he decently can, and that the United States will wait tranquilly till he does.
