charged, having the most abundant and satisfactory
evidence that they were not violating the law. It was
happy, for them that two of them were sons of ship
toasterswho saw that justice was done.
The correction of these abuses demands the most
serious attention. We have a bad name abroad for
no one tiling as much as the enormous amount of
fines on seamen paid by every ship that touches at
these ports. It is not a mere tax. It is a great in
dignity, and we cannot blame the sufferers if they
feel great resentment, and shun our ports. Seamen
must be restrained from violent disorder and out
rageous vice, but it is not necessary to make them
feel the full stringency of our laws. That should be
reserved for those whose homes are here, and know
the laws, and how to evade them. Leniency over
looking transgression when possible should be the
rule with the stranger and guest. Hosrcs.
Mr Editor : I notice in your useful and widely
circulated journal of the 9th inst, an article signed
Democrat," proposing an expression of public opinion
in this Kingdom, in relation to the contest now going
on in the United States, between the different Candi
dates for the Presidency of that great Republic. This
request is also sanctioned by a republican who renews
the request of Democrat by an article in your paper
of the 16th signed Republican."
Now, Mr. Editor, those two gentlemen, whoever
they are, Democrat" and Republican," have
written and made those requests without reflection as
to its effects upon our people and the interests of our
Kingdom. Suppose for instance that there is an ex
pression of public opinion given in this Kingdom by
ballot and the result should be in favor of Colonel
Fremont, and Mr. Buchanan should be elected. How
do Democrat and Republican suppose that Mr. Bu
chanan with his Cabinet of special friends, around
him would" feel towards the inhabitants of these
Islands who, uncalled for had done all they could by
nn expression of public opinion against him to defeat
Surely it would, prejudice all of our interests in the
minds of Mr. Buchanan and his Cabinet, and we
ehould be made to feel their displeasure through the
whole of his administration.
But, Mr. Editor, suppose we cast our votes for him
who proves to be the successful candidate ; will our
condition be altered in relation to our interests with
the United States ? Not at all. We should be visited
with the vengeance and indignation of that powerful
minority who to some extent would charge us as being
instrumental, or at least, contributing to their de
feat. Will the minority not be largely represented in the
Senate, and upon all questions (treaties or other mat
ters) that come before that body, in relation to this
Kingdom and people, should n e not be made to feel
their indignation and deeply to regret the ill-advised
course we had taken in giving public expression in
relation to that which did not belong to us ?
Mr. Editor, the thing in the opinion of your corres
pondent is not to be thought of, for there is no prin
ciple in American politics more true than that the
successful or the defeated party love their friends
and hate their enemies. Therefore neutrality is the
course for us to pursue.

Mr. Editor : I see in the Advertiser of September
11, ' An Inquirer" wishes to know the cause of white
specks in newly churned butter. There are two
things which causes them. 1st. In skimming the
milk, the cream is not taken off sufficiently dry, and
2nd, the cream is not stirred sufficiently often to keep
the oily and milky parts constantly mixed, conse
quently the latter remains in the bottom of the dish
and coagulates, and when the cream is churned,
breaks up into small bits. Cream should stand open
the cool, dry air, and be frequently stirred, at
least twice a day morning and night, and better if

Antiquity of Gunpowder. The first Englishman
who mentioned gunpowder was Roger Bacon, who,
about the year 1274, described it as then in common
use all over the world for making squibs to amuse
children. It is mentioned by Philostratus, 355 years
before Christ ; and in the code cf Hindoo laws it is
referred to a period coincident with the time of Moses.

sales of lots by the organized town proprietors
amounted to ten thousand dollars.
France. Late letters from France state that there
is no danger of the overthrow of the government of
Louis Napoleon, though an outbreak may be attempt

soldiers are true to a man, and would shoot revolu

bance of commercial affairs, and men of property,
large and small, see that a change of government
could only be effected by wholesale slaughter, follow
ed by pillage and the guillotine.
Privateering. Secretary Marcy, in one of the
ablest State papers that ever came from his pen, has
replied to the Court De Sartiges, the French Minister
at Washington, who presented, on behalf of the Em
peror of France, a proposition that the United States
should assent to the ' declaration concerning mara
time laws," adopted by the Plenipotentiaries of Great
Britian, Austria, France, Russia, Prussia, Sardinia
and Turkey, at Paris, on the 16th of April, 1856.
The President, he writes, declines to accede to the
four points in the said declaration to-wit :
1 Privateering is and remains abolished.
2 The neutral flag covers ememy's goods with the
exception of contraband of war.
3 Neutral goods, with the exception of contraband
of war, are not liable to capture under enemy's flag.
4 Blockades, in order to be binding must be effect
ive, that is to say, sustained by a force sufficient
really to prevent access to the enemy's coast.
These four points are indivisible, because he cannot,
or any condition, accept the first point the abolition
of privateering. Secretary Marcy, however, proposes
the two following amendments :
1 Either to add to the first proposition in the "de
claration" of the Congress of Paris
" And that the private property of the subjects or
citizen of a belligerent on the high seas shall be ex
empted from seizure by public armed vessels of the
other belligerents, except it be contraband;" or,
2 To adopt the second, third and fourth proposi
tions, without the first.
The argument contalued in the Secretary's reply is
historical, argumentative and forcible. It holds that
no nation has a right to prescribe to another what
shall constitute her military or naval force, and that
we can neither agree not to employ volunteers on
land, nor privateers on the high seas.
"No nation which has a due sense of self-respect"
says Mr. Marcy, "will allow any other, belligerent or
neutral, to determine the character of the force,
which it may deem proper to use in prosecution hos
tilities; nor will it act wisely if it voluntarily surren
ders the right resort to any means sanctioned by in
ternational law, which, under any circumstances,
and may be advantageously used for defence or ag
gression. " The United States consider powerful navies and
large standing armies, as permanent establishments,
to be detrimental to national prosperity and danger
ous to civil liberty. The expense of keeping them up
is burdensome to the people. They are, in the opinion
of this government, in some degree a menace to peace
among nations. A large force, ever ready to be de
voted to the purposes of war, is a temptation to rush
into it. The policy of the United States has ever been,
and never more than now, adverse to such establish
ments; and they can never be brought to acquiesce in
any change in international law which may render
it necessary for them to maintain a powerful navy or
large regular army in time of peace. If forced to
vindicate their rights by arms, they are content, in
the present aspect of international relations, to rely,
in military operations on land, mainly upon volunteer
troops, and for the protection of their commerce in no
inconsiderable degree upon their mercantile marine.
If this country were deprived of these resources, it
would be obliged to change its policy and assume a
military attitude before the world. In resisting an
attempt to change the existing marine law that may
produce such a result, it looks beyond its own interest,
and embraces in its view the interest of all such na
tions as are not likely to be dominant naval powers.
Their situation in this respects is similar to that of
the United States, and to them the protection of com
merce and the maintenance of international relations
of peace appeal as strongly as to this country to with
stand the proposed change in the settled law of na
tions. To such nations the surrender of the right
to resort to privateers would be attended with con
sequences most adverse to their commercial prosperi
ty, without any compensating advantage. Most cer
tainly no better reasons can be given for such a sur
render that for foregoing the right to receive the
service of volunteers; and the proposition to abandon
the former is entitled,in the judgment of the President,
to no more favor than a similar proposition in relation
to the latter. This opinion of the importance of
privateers to the community of nations, excepting
only those of great naval strength, is not only vindi
cated by history but sustained by high authority.
