War Department, April 13, 1859.
The proceedings of the court in the case of
Lieut Caleb Smith, haying been submitted to
the President, he has seen cause, while he con
firms them, to remit the sentence. The rea
son for this clemency have reference to the
provocation of disrespect nu.l insubordination
which the prisoner yielde 1 to ; but they do not
in any manner justify his resort to violent de
monstrations to maintain an authoritv exer
cised without discretion, when a dignity of
command that might have been expected in
the lowest grade of office was nmplv sufficient
for tho occasion. Lieutenant Smith retains his
commission, and it will be well if th lesson he
has received shall stimulate him to a more effi
cient and elevated practice of the authority
which it confers. John B. Floyd,
Secretary of War.
The Bankrupt Government op Europe.
Every few weeks we hear of spmc one or other
of the European governments shinning amon

There is a new and very interesting phase in
tftir relations with Nicaragua. , As has already
been rmdc known, Run Runnels, the New con
sul to Sun Juitn, took important despatches to
Minister Lamar, and the officers in command
of the home squadron. These instructions
have been. reiterated an.l strengthened by des
patches sent still more-recently. Our minister
is to demand the immediate restoration of the
'tcamors to tho Transit Company, ample in
demnity for the damage done by the destruct
ion of .the bridges si tl other property pn the
route, nd any other damage jhafc may have

Our" government has definitely resolved that
the Transit route shall be opened, and has is
sued a circular to the several companies to as
certain upon what terms the California mail
can be carried by the route from the 30th of
September, 1859, to the 30th of June, I860.
The company must have the privilege of transit
from Nicaragua, when our government will pro
tect the company as far as our guns will go ;
and if things should come to a collision, there
is hardly any question but that tho navnl com
manders would take the responsibility of land

mails and treasure.
Experiments on Horses. Some curious ex
periments have been made at the Veterinary
school at Alfort, just outside Paris, by order of
the Minister of War, to ascertain the endurance
of horses, as in a besieged town, for example.
It appears a horse will' live . on. water alone
twenty-five days ; seventeen days without eat
ing and only five days if fed but unwutered :
ten days if fed but insufficiently wateced. A
horse kept without water for three days; drank
one hundred and four pounds of water in three
minutes. It was found, too, that a horse taken
immediately after " feed " and kept in the ac
tive exercise of the "squadron school," com
pletely digested in three hours ; if kept quiet in
the stable its digestion was scarcely com
menced in three hours.
