An English paper says: It will be
remembered that in 1861, a short time
e- after the death of Prince Albert, among
n a large number of letters received by
i- Queen Victoria from distinguished for
t eigners, was one from Theodore, Empe
d ror of Abyssinia, tendering his condo
lences and his hand in matriniony. This
-- was all that was heard of the matter at
- the time, and the story was believed to
rt be either a fabrication or a veritable in
k discretion of the unenlightened African
Sto whlich he would pay no further atten
I tion. It seems that, acting upon theist
ter assumption, the Queen concluded to
1 make no retsponse to the proposal. But
the mighty sovereign of Abyssinia could
f nolt brook so manifest an insult be
, tore the eyes of all nations. Retalia
tory measures were adopted, and Her
Mrl ejesty's Consul and several other Eng
t lishmen were cast into prison, in the
n hope of bringing the haughty Queen to
's terms. The British lion was aroused by
this conduct, and, after a careful delib
C eration of the matter, the ministry sent
ii a civil declination from the Queen of the
profr-dred hand. But Theodore w so not
n to be appeased so easily. The prisoners
are still kept in close confinement, with
C threats of erecution hanging over their
e heads if their government shall proceed
to overt acts against himu. This pre
w, vents a resort to arms to effect the pur
pose. Moretrver, the geographical situa
tion of the Abyssinian seat of govern
n mernt, in the interior of Africa. places
e war out of the question, since it would
be attended with a fearful expenditure
d of blood and treasure.
On the whole, the question is decidedly
a knotty and troublesome one, and all
the ri.sources of diplomatic skill have
d bet-n exhausted upon it without avail.
L Bribes and threats have been resorted to
Y in vain. An offer of handsome presents
has lately been made, but the Emperor
rerfuses to release the prisoner until he
t his received the gifts, and it is very
Sdubtful whether he would do it then.
At all events the British &Government is
a raid to trust him, and thus the matter

ills empire embraces an area of 282.000
square miles, and contains a supposed
l))pulation of 3,500,000. The Emperor
laxuriates upon the princely income of
$300 per aunum, and has a goxod trade
that of parasol maker. It the English
queen sh-uld ultimately be obliged to
a:cede to his wishes to settle the pend

would he still further increased by the
annexation of this immense territory.
IThis would also give England the com
plete command of the Red Sea. Alto
gether the, scheme is far from being
destitute of commendatory points. it
cannot be that any prejudice exists
against the dusky complexion of Theo

aside all disLinctions of this kind. How
the atiir will be disposed of remains to
The Territory of Wyominmg.
The Platte Valley Journrd, a new pa
per published in Nebraska, gives the
following items of interest regarding the
Territory of Wyoming:
The Union Pacific Railroad will be
completed early in May next to the west
ern boundary of Nebraska-a distance
of four hundred miles. '!'he road then
passes through the rich mineral Terri
tory of Wyoming. Running along Lodge
Pole creek. it approaches the mountains
at Cheyenne Pass. Bounded on the
west by the Rocky Mountains, north by
the Territory of Montana, east by No
blaska and south by Colorado. The re
sources of Wyoming are yet undevel
oped; but enough is known of its im
mense deposits of gold, silver, copper
and coal to warrant us in saying that
within one year from this time it will
possess a population equal to Montana.
"The veins of coal alone will supply the
U. P. R. R. with fuel for ages to come.
These veins are already being worked
At the crossing of the North Platte
there is a coal strata among the rocks on
the north side of the river. The other
precious metals will be found to be
equally rich. This Territory is bound
to be settled up with a thriving popula
tion and in our opinion the early spring
will see a very heavy tide of immigra
tion set in.
AARON BURR AND JEFF. DAVIS-The

Aaron Burr, after he was acquitted,
went to foreign lands. Perhaps when
he first landed in (Oreat Britian he also

thing and spoke of the United States
"No rogue e'er felt the halter draw
With good opinion of the law."
But to Burr, one asylum atter another
grew odious; he roved from place to
place, seeking in vain for happiness, and
finally returned to New York. To live
even in isolation and poverty on Ameri
can soil, to die "unwept, unhonored and
unsung." and to be buried in an un
noticed grave beneath the flag that
he once despised, was better than to be
"a man without a country." But Burr
was a saint compared to the man who
has now started on his wanderings. His
hands were not stained with rivers of
blood. Half a million of men had not
died-bereaved families had not mourn.
