Anderson, in which it is.stated that when be
' left Aspinwall, on the 3d inst., Walker was
still in Rivas, with some 300 men. A day or
.wo previous to his (Anderson) leaving the
isthmus, a letter was received from a private
j source in San Francisco, requesting General

of the usual time of the steamer's arrival at
that place from San Francisco, but " not to
have his expectations raised too high," and he
would mere und something to benelit him and
his cause. The Colonel also informs us that
he heard from another source, that the pro
posd " benefit " was In the shape of a small
sailing vessel fitted up by private enterprise,
having upwards or lou men, a good tupp
provisions, arms, ammunition, &e on a
wnicn Anderson mints must nave arrived ere
this time, and been taken charge of by Walker
or some one or nis representatives. Col. An
; derson sas s that Walker, by means of spies,
. is enabled to keep up an artive communication
j with the sloop-of-war St. Mary and with San
1 Juan del bur. By these means he was enabled
I to keep posted up." The Colonel thinks his
1 Btar is yet in the ascendant, and tP2t the Gen
era! can work himself and army through the
enemy to San Juan at any time he chooses ; but
as be' is still quite easy at Rivas, he prefers for
the present a " masterly inactivity," in order
to deceive the enemy as to his real intent and
purpose, until be shall have sufficiently re
cruited his force to ensure his success. Tbe
iiCoIonel further says that he came down the
river to Aspinwall at tbe same time that Lock-
ridge's party did, but tnat he has remained on
the Isthmus so as to communicate with
and satisfy himself of Walker's position.
From all he was thus enabled to learn, be gives
little credence to the report from New Orleans
by telegraph, mat " Walker had escaped, and
taken refuge on board a man-of-war." He
thinks it is a fabrication.
One of the officers of the George Lam says
that, on leaving Aspinwall, the report was cur
rent there that Walker was completely hemmed
in on all sides by the enemy in Rivas, an 1 that
the Allies were about bringing their guns to
bear upon him, in which caBe there would, he

the highest reward which a public servant

ted trusts into his hands, understand and endorse
That I have endeavored, in all things, to rep

of my feeble abilities, my own conscience bears
me witness, and the zenerous support which

TEE HEHPHIS CELEBRATION.
From tbe Journal or Commerce.
Memphis, Ten.v., May 5, 1857.
Mv Dear Journal: Never have I had
more delightful surprise than that which met
me in .Memphis. 1 nau read much ot tnerapia
progress of this young city, but I did not
could not realize mat n was a piace ot sucn
importance. We of the northern cities never
can realize the greatness of this southern and
western country until we tee for ourselves, and
not with the eves of another. Now that the
laet link has been not broken but united
which joins the Atlantic cities and those of
the .Mississippi, we may none of us be excusa
ble for ignorance on this point. It was against
mv will, mv dear Journal, that I made this
Memphis visit (we women do sometimes yield
our wishes to those of others) and I supposed
a Railroad Jubilee" in Mcmphu would be ra
ther a forlorn affair. While I am in the con
fesslonal I may as well make a clean breast
altogether, and acknowledge that I bad formed
a hasty judgment of Memphis, from having
seen a lew or its citizens maKe wnat lsvui
garly, but very aptly canea a spiurge,-'in my
beloved city of New York; and I set hem
down as a class of purse-proud, extravagant
men, and face-painting, gaudy-dressing, empty
headed women. I am ashamed to confess so
much, and I acknowledge that it wsb narrow-
minded in me to entertain such ideas or Mem
phis people, from having seen the "antics" of
Mrs. , and others of that type, as it
is for southern persons to imagine that all thel
northern ladies are in love with t red. uoug
lass, and prefer his society to that of their
fathers and husbands. I am certain that in
describing mv own impressions I am describin
those of a very large number of persons from
tbe East and North who have just made their'
first visit to the shores of the Mississippi
With these feelings I entered Memphis ; and as
I toiled up the river bank, and was politely
assisted into the hack: by one gentleman, ivniie
another held an umbrella over my head to pro
tect me from the ram, I inwardly ejaculated
"Just what I expected I clay bluffs, and short
streets, mules, cotton bales, and short white
houses, looking up to tall brtcK ones i" am .
said nothing "to dampen the ardor of my com'
pardon and now glad 1 am that 1 did not !
And now for our lodging. We tried the Wor
sham House we tried the Commercial w
tried the-Gayoso, (which was like everything
in America, according to Mr. uickens, in
a state of. "progression") we tried Mrs,
Smith's (relict ot the lamented John Smith,
presume) we tried an me boarding-houses
dut in vain. ,
Before we were fairly housed I Men,
the polite, back-driver, demanded only $5
for our ride,) chance led us into the pres
ence or one or me nanusome uoiontii wn
composed the Committee of Reception, and
through hio exertions, we were kindly re
eetred and hoanitablr entertained hv nne
of tie-ladies of'Memphis a true Southerner
in all tilings beauty--inteiligence wit an
charming manners. I did not acknowledge all
this at firtt. She made us feel really at home, and
mourn before her door opened, l reit lite m
greatest of intruders upon a private family.
yet in a short time, 1 felt almost as though 1
was conferring a favor upon Aer instead of
the obligation being the other way. Was not
that a triumph of true politeness? I shall
never forget her kindness, and am truly thank
ful that lwas so soon forced, to give up my false
Impression of bouthern society. Un the way
to this kind lady's residence, my companion
called my attention to Court Square, Court
Square!" Your Imagination depicts a scene
of moral beauty, aided by art, lovely walks.
elegaut statuary, fountains sparkling but
the reality is, a small patch of,grass and trees

pigs slowly promenading, cows thoughtfully
grazing, and a mule or two, standing motion

C. began to lood amaze I, and exclaimed,
" what can they do to-morrow, in such a place
as that 11 And if this rain continues, how can
they avoid postponing the celebration?" Tbe
maiestic Colonel smiled condescendingly, and
replied, " the celebration cannot -be poitponed,
on any account." thai was. decided. We
were welcomed by our hostess with the Bweet
est of smiles, and a warm grasp of the hand.
Even the glowing fire sent forth a sparkle of
welcome, lightning up the rich crimson cur
tains, bringing out the roses on tbe velvet car
pet, and flashing back from the picture frames
and mirrors, until I almost forgot how dull and
gray all looked, out of doors. Our host
pressed C. to take a room in his house, but he
declined, with many thanks, lie round lodg
ing with a great number of others, in the up
per rooms tu the cue building in which tbe
firm of Candee, Mix ii Co., carry on their dty-
goods business, ineee gentlemen kejit "open
house" on this occasion, and many shared
their accommodations who would have had to
leave the cityVotherwise,
The 1st of May dawned clear, and became
brighter every moment, until there was noth
ir.e to remind one ot the rain, unless we chose
to look at tbe ground and who would do that,
when there was so much that was more agree
able to look at, cfcore the ground? We bad a
fine position for seeing tbe procession, as it
formed in the Square, and after marching
around it. nassed direct! v un the street A tall.
long-haired individual, belonging to the estab-
i - i t e -1 I r
usument oi iaouee, mix a. uo., gave us a mm
occasionally, as to who were passing so that
we could soon distinguish the different military
and fire companies, and the most honored
guests. How differently Court Square looked 1
Now it was ,a shifting scene of gay beauty;
one moment a mass or ladles and children,
looking like a bright flower garden at another
filled with manly forms in handsome uniform
tne mass of ngures on the pavement, in tbe
windows, the balconies everywhere such a
sea of tilKt such an avalanche or broad'
cloth, and oh! such beautiful faces, that I
wished myself a man just for the pleasure of
trying to decide which was the prettiest, so as
to fall desperately in love perhaps you think
that I did tbe next thing to it, and fell in love
with some of the aforesaid "manly forms."
But I confess that I preferred my little Au
York friend,') who accompanied me and my
aunt,) to all that throng of splendid looking
men. miii, i must auinit, mere w lotneining
rather sublime in those immense whitken, so
much tbe fashion in the bourn.
I cannot give you much idea of tbe number
of persons present, but some say there were
50,000. I suppose the papers will afford you a
better description, and tne number or specta
tors, than a "reminine" could so l will only
say that the whole immense maBS proceeded in
carriages and on foot, to the Navy Yard, where,
about three o'clock, a most Sumptuous repast
was set out by Joseph bpecnt, confectioner.
Surh extensive eating arrangements l never
before witnessed. 1 can readily credit that
tberewere prepirations made for 50,000 persons.
The ornamental part was by no means neglect
ed, and there were numberless specimens or
fine confectionery on the tables. The way in
which full dishes replaced empty ones, as fast
as they were needed, was like magic ana an
so quiet and orderly that it seemed like a first
rate hotel dinner. I believe every one got
plenty to eat, and I saw many devoted mothers
carrying away handkerchiefs full of oranges
and cakes to their interesting little families. I
heard it remarked on all sides, that the day
passed without a single disturbance of any
kind, and only one intoxicated person did I see,
in all that vast throng of people of all grades
and temper: Some of Ihe happiest and most
smiling faces I saw were those of the colored
population. One of them exclaimed, " Dress
de Lord ! ice will have a chance to trabble now,
as well as de Miss' and iias'r dis railroad
alnt none of dem ablilioner railroads what runs
under de grout,' and carries de niggers away
from deir own folks." So it seems even the
blacks have some idea of the benefits of tbis
railroad. (By the way, the colored people
here are about as independent as any class I
ever saw, and do nut seem to be near so hard
working as our hired girls North.)
On-tbe evening of Friday there was a larce
ball at the Exchange buildings, and a splendid
display of fireworks from Ihe bluff. Tbe latter
were truly beautiful. A handsome arch spanned
Main street, which was a brilliant affair, hav
ing tbe initials of the four railroads which rad
iate from Mersphiain blazing letters. From
the center of the arch, a chandelier made of ev
ergreens bung, and the arch was festooned Kith
the same, while three flags surmounted the
whole. We stopped in the Odd Fellows' Hall
for a few moments, where a fair was befagheld
for tbe benefit of the Cumberland Presbyterian
Church The crowd was so iaiBtnie that we
got out at quietly as possible, and Ttturned to
tne rewdei'ce ot our una entertainers.
Of the Saturday's celebration I will not now
neak. as I have already trespassed upon your
indulgence, while 1 have given vent to my per
sonal feelings instead of giving you the full par
ticulars of all that was said and done on the oc

August, 1842, a copy of which is subjoined,
are still in force, and furnish a rule of construe
tion to be arplied to articles not specially de
signated in the several schedules of the act of
3d March, isoi. mese provisions, properly
applied, will aid tbe officers of the customs in
assigning articl sof import, not designated in
terms in the tarin, to me scneduie to wnicn
they are to b regarded as belonging, in refer
ence to their liability to duty.
All other unenumerated articles, not so sus'
centibleof classification, will be liable to the
duty of fifteen per centum, as prescribed in tbe
first section of the act of 3d March, 1857.
By tbe fourth section of the said act It is
provided that all goods, wares, and merchan
dise which shall be in the public stores on the
first Jay of July next shall be subject, on entry
thereof for consumption, to no other duty than
if tbe same bad been imported, respectively,
after that day. Merchandise, therefore, in
public stores on tbe first day of July next, or

for consumption, to the rates of duty prescribed
bv the act of 3d March, 1S57.
It has been represented to the department
that, under the designation or " galvanized tin
plates or sheets," there have been attempts to
introduce sheet iron, covered with a thin coat
ing of tin, the purpose being to pass tbe iron
through the custom-house at a lower rate of
dutvas a galvanized tin. ihe attention olcoi
lectors and appraisers is specially directed to
tbis subject, and they will, on the entry of all
articles purporting to be tin plaUs or sheets,
galvanized or not, carefully inspect the arti
cles, and admit nothing as tin places or sheets
that were not clearly known as such in com
mercial parlance at the passage of the tariff
act of 184b. Where piates or sheets or iron
or other metal are attempted to be introduced
in evasion of the law, under a false designation,
the proper proceedings will at once be insti
tuted to enforce the forfeitures and penalties
provided by law ; and in all cases where no
fraudulent attempt is manifested the duty to
which the articles, according to their true
character, are liable under existing laws, must
be levied and collected.
A question has recently been presented to
the department in regard to the exemption from
duty of certain articles claimed to be " paint
ings," and as such falling within schedule lot
tbe tariff. It is decided by tbe department
that the " painting" referred to in that sched
ule, as entitled to tbe entry, must be an object
of taste recognised as a painting in the usual
acceptation of tbe term; and that paintings on
glass specially provided for-in schedule C, on
porcelains, alabaster, china, marble, plaster, or
similar materials ; on plates, goblets, vases, or
any other utensil ; or paintings capable of being
converted into breastpins, eardrops, or other
ornaments to be worn on the person, ars not
entitled to free entry under tne law.
In schedule I, it will be seen, there is a pro.
vision for the admission free of duty of sheeps'
wool, unmanufactured, of the value of twenty
cents per pound or less at me port, or exporra
tion. The question has been submitted, wheth
er. in estimating the value in such cases at the
port of exportation, the expenses of packing,
commissions, ana omercnarges, icciaem io me
shipment of articles for exportation, are to be
The value referred to in this provision of the
law is the current market value or price at
which the article m question could be generally
purchased per pound, and does not include the
charges and expenses mentioned, or other
charges incurred in the mere shipment, or
preparation for ehiomentyrtter purchase.
Commissions and shipping charges are, how
ever, under the laws levying duties on imports,
to be added to the foreign market value of im
ports, as a part of tbe value on which duties
are to be assessed on entry in ports of the
United States ; but they constitute no part of
the value in the foreign market as referred to.
In regard to the fifth section of the act of
the 3d March, 1857, providing for an appeal to
tbis department from the decision of me col
lector as to the rates of duty to which imports
are to be subjected, collectors are instructed
that whenever such appeals are taken they are
to forward at once to the department a report
of their decision, and the grounds upon Which
it was based, together with a report in full, on
the subject from tbe appraisers, if any, at the
port, accompanied by samples, if deemed
necessary, to afford a clear understanding of
tbe matter In controversy between the importer
and me custom authorities.
As connected with tbe operation of the tar
iff laws now in force, the attention of collect
ors and other officers of the customs is called
to the subjoined acts of Congress, approved the
id and 3d ultimo, atnenda'.ory of the 28th sec
tion of the tariff act of 30th August, 1842, and
the 8th section of the tariff act of 30th July,
1840. and which went into etlect at the several
dates of their approval.
In the act first mentioned, it will be perceived
that the prohibition of the importation of cer
tain articles is mads so comprehensive as to
embrace descriptions of imports not affected
by the law as it originally stood, but whose Im
portation, nevertheless, was believed to be
within the principle ot that enactment Tbe
amended act is pricise and definite in Its terms,
and obviates all doubt as to its scope and

otherwise, on the same footing is to the privi

Latest Indian Hews Two Soldiers .Killed and
Prom the Tampa Penlnsnlar.1
The rumor, published last week, of an at
tack by Indians, on a party of soldiers, at Palm
Grove, is confirmed. Tbe particulars are as
Two detachments, numbering in all about
twenty men, from Companies B and E, fifth
infantry, under command of a non-commissioned
officer, were left in charge of boats, stores,
&c, at Palm Grove, while tbe main body of the
troops that had been operating in that quarter
The nearest point from which water could be
obtained being about three quarters of a mile,
me men were compelled to convey it in barrels.
It had been customary for four men to carry
tbe barrel, while six others accompanied them
.as a guard.
On the 23d ult, while approaching tbe well
they were cut offfrom the camp and fired on by
a considerable number of Indians. Privates
Siler, Company B, and .Springer, Company E,
were killed ; privates Haner, Company E, se
verely, ana woir, company is, slightly wound
ed. Three of the remainder threw away their
arms, while the rest made a good retreat. The
camp was men rortmea by a breast work con
structed or barrels. While this work was
going on, tie Indiana showed themselves and
dared the soldiers to a fair fight. Tbe soldiers
went out, and the Indians retired to a ham
mock. The savages were led by a negro, who
was dressed to the full costume of a chief. He
and several others, could sneak verv good Eng
lish, and were not very choice iu the epithets
they applied to the whites.
Sixteen Indians were counted, and, from the
signs, it was supposed there were as many
more. They whooped around the camp during

The bodies of Siler and Springer were found
and buried by Lieut Hill. They were scalped,

It is rumored that Michael Swicord was the
name of the man killed, and thit the Indians
secured his gun and about five hundred rounds
of ammunition. Swicord's horse being the

of carrying the ammunition which was being
conveyed to the Company.
