A geufclomnn recently from Africa, while '
at one of the civilized colonies on the coast, |
mot a colored woman whom he had known
in old Yirfrmrn. who hnd nl>l -linnd linr
freedom for good conduct, and had emigrated
" Where are yon trnvclhig to, Mary ?"
said tho gentleman.
" I am going down to tho village on the

nigger! I want to nee soino white
" But avy you doing well here ?"
' u Oh, very well. I have four slaves who
make palm leaf hntjfl."
" Slave*, Mary ? You, emancipated, to
have slaves in your own land ?"
" Oil, yos," Baid she, with great simplicity,
" must do oh they do in old Virginity."
Tho above has been in circulation among
the nowspapors for Home months. It is
believed to liayeorigitiated in Noah's Weekly
Times and Messenger, from which queer
and always interesting though often rascally
paper, it waa out at the time and put
among the heavily accumulated excerpts
for the Day Book.
If it Wan original in the Times and Mc?H?ngcr,
it is hnrd to say where Noah picked
it tip. It is not probable that the incident
ever actually occurred na described; but
the facts Which countenance it (and may
have augmented it,) were partly published

port yesterday morning from Asp ill wall,
bringing fifty-throe of Walker's men who
were at tho siego of Rivas. The Cyanc
made the passage in twenty-four days.
In conversing with these men, we found
that a remarkable degree of respect for their
past commander, and much enthusiasm regarding
future prospects in Nicaragua, appearcu
to animate the whole. Not one

cuiupnuucu 01 uic treatment no nau receivcd
from General Walker, but nil attributed
their sufferings and privations to eauscs
which it was not in his power to control.?
Many of them convorsed very intelligently
in regard to the state of affairs in the couutry
wbore they had met with <iuch disasters,
and maintained that Walker's conduct had
been much misrepresented. All were earnest
in proclaiming their desire to "turn
about and go back" if theopportunity should
again offer itself.
Lieutenant Isaac R. Snyder, of Philadelphia,
has been with Walker since last

" Come on, men !" and Snyder bad scfci>
bim at the bead of his men in the midst of
a heavy fire, from which it did not scorn
possible that he could como out alive. Snyder
says that he was always well treated by
Walker, and has no cause to complain of
him. He never knew of but two or three
. iu which the Commander's cou
duct could be considered cruel. One was
when ft sergeant who had dcaertod was cap
tured and brought back to Walker, who
' ordered him to be shot without a court
> martial. The other instance, "Walker gave
I orders to a party to go in search of six dc!
sorters, and if thoy were found to shoot
. them instantly. j hroc or them were cmss
covcrcd and shot. Snyder thinks <]!cn.
i llcnningscn a "line man, and better versed
in military matters than Walker. Thinks
r Walker did the best he could for his sobl'
iers in regard to food and clothing. The
I greatest loss of Walker was his steamers,
J the capture of which Snyder attributes to
, the agency of Vanderbilt. If it were not
r for the loss of the steamers Walker would
> be. in possession of the country now. The
r Commissary Department he blames for not
i storing more provisions at llivas, where,
I during tho siege, the men were compelled
i to subsist some time upon tho, meat of jack1
aijsos and mules. Snyder is ready to join
f Walker again if ho returns to Nicaragua.

Kansas?Letter from Senator MusouTo
thr Editor of th? South :
'1)kak Sui :?In yor paper of Monday
l$st; in :m article headed "Walker's Usurpation,"
I observe the following paragraph:
I . Jl iJJ il.i u... .... i ??
who ?vv; ujx- iuiu iiiui nunier, anu lua8*ou,
and other distinguished Southern Senators,
in tliu il?V)aio on ike Nttljianlift-Kfii)&is
bill, expressed the same opinion, that
Kansas must be a free State, &e."
I cannot undertake to say what opinions
may have been expressed by my honored
colleague, or by any other Senators from
the South, in reference to the probable condition
of Kansas ; though from a general
knowledge of their views in regard to that
Territory, I should not doubt that any opinions
so expressed, would have refercnco to
circumstances and contingencies necessarily
qualifying them. To avoid misconstruction,
however, 1 think it proper to say that
r never expressed the opinion thus ascribed
tome, because i never entertained it.?
The time the law paused, organizing the
Territorial Government, there were few
with whom T. conversed who did not believe
that the future State would take its
placowith those recognizing and cherishing
the condition of African slavery. There
vran nt that time, certainly, every reason to
believe why this should bo so, and none
why it should not. The State of Missouri,
bordering its eastern frontier, was a slave
State, holding at that nearly a hundred
thousand slaves, and these were chiefly held
in the border countics.
l lie state ot Arkansas, adjacent to the
Territory, on the South, was likewise a
slaveholding State. The soil and climate
of Kansas were well adapted to those valuable
products, chiefly hemp and tobacco,
which gave value to slave labor in Missouri.
The proximity of its population, with
the attractions of now, fertile, and cheap
land, 1 believed would lead the slaveholders
in Missouri to dilVuse themselves speedily
over Kansas, and the prohibitory line
of 36:40 being oblitovated, there was no
reason why they should not. 1 had no fear
of fair competition in such appropriation of
the new Territory from any quarter. I n
fair competition L did not look to. Whnl
may yet be the result as to the condition oi
Kansas, notwithstanding the extraordinary
and unscrupulous efforts of Northern Abolitionist*
to force a population there, L can,
not undertake to bay. Nor will I allude in
( this place to the new and uncfepectcd aspect
now exhibited of affairs in that Tcr,
ritory, toith so much propriety reprehend\
e<l in the columns of the "South." What|
ever may be the information of others, 1
certainly am not. sufficiently informed of the
( existing state of thingft in Kansas, to form
a clear opinion one way or the other j yet 1
will venture to say this much, that if African
slavery he intimately excluded from
' Kansas, it will bo effected by the numerical
force of organized mnjc itics, operating

Mr. Marcy's Letter.
When the (Jonvenlio of Paris was transmitted
to Washington, Mr. Maroy, with an
amiable candor, declared 1jis intention of
considering it with a view to tho interosts
of tho United States in tlio contingency of
a war with England. Tlio Americans have
as much to lose at sea as ourselves, but
they have a comparatively insignificant navy.
It was therefore natural that they
should wish to diminish captures; but they
were likely to suffer a disadvantage by allowing
ships of war a monopoly ofplunder.
Tho Secretary of Stato was perfectly justified
in looking to t.be iihcrcsta of his country,
although ho used an untenable argument
when ho assumed that private enterprise
would make up for tho deficient
strength of the national marine. It is well
known that privateers never fight, but. it
cannot be denied that in a war with Kngluiid
they might be a formidable weapon
in the hands of tho United States. Mr.
four articles ot' tho European Convention,
but the parties lo tho Treaty of Paris had
agreed to make the concession of any part
conditional on tho acceptance of tho whole.
As an alternative, ho made a bold and
comprehensive proposal. Tho Ameiicun
Government undertook to renounce the use
of letters of Marque on condition that tho
property of belligerents at sea should he
wholly exempt from capture; and, it' tho

gretted that England did not at once close
with the suggestion. Lord Palmorston intimated
in his Manchester speech an inclination
to acquiesce in the project, but it
was necessai v to consult the Powers which
had signed the Treaty of Paris, and it was
thought desirable to examine the vaiiou
results which might aiise from such a rev
olution in Maritime Law. Before a decis
ion could bo formed the Cabinet at Wash
in. on became alarmed at tho possibility

linnnn and General V.lass liavo intimated
their disclinatiou to follow lip the discussion,
nor is there any reason to hope that
so desirable an object will soon become attainable.
In the meantime the laws of
war between England and America are
wholly unaflected by the Convention ol
The maritime weapon which is really indispensable
to England is the right of block

was attracted by a noise, he looked around
and, to his intense astonishment, saw a larg

They wore soon overtaken by one of th
