day, with the correspondence on the
Alabama claims: J S
To the Senate of the ??nth?d States: I
transmit herewith the correspondence
which has recently taken place rea poet
the differences of opinion, whioh have
arisen between this Government and
that of Great Britain with regard to the
power of the tribunal of arbitration
created nuder the treaty signed at Wash?
ington, May 8, 1871. I respectfully in?
vite , the attention of the Senate to the
proposed article submitted by the
British Government, with tho object of
removing the differences which seem to
threaten the prosecution of the arbitra?
tion, and request au expression by the'
Senate of their disposition in regard to
advising and consenting to the formal
adoption of on article, such as is pro?
posed by the British Government. The
Senate is aware that tho consultation
with that bod; in advance of entering
into agreements with foreign States bas
lu the early days of tho republic,
General Washington asked their advice
upon pending questions with such
powers. The most important recent
precent i? that of the Oregon boundary
treaty, in 1816. The importance of the
result- hanging upon the present state
of the treaty with Great Britain leads
me to follow these former procedente,
aud to desire the counsel of the Senate
in advance of agreeing to the proposals
of Great Britain. U. S. GRANT.
WASHINGTON, May 13, 1872.
The following despatch from Minister
Sohecck to Secretary Fish contains the
draft of the additional article to the
treaty proposed by the British Govern?
LONDON, May, 1872.-Lord Granville,
a few minutes einoe, submitted to me in
person the following draft of an article,
whioh, if the Government of the United
States think flt to adopt, will be ac?
cepted by her Majesty's Government.
I made no comment on it, but said I
would telegraph it to you immediately:
Whereas the Government of her Bri?
tannic Majesty has contended in the re?
cent correspondence with the Govern?
ment of the United States as follows,
namely: That such indirect claims as
those for the national losses stated in
the oases presented on the part of the
Government of the United States to tho
tribunal of arbitration at Geneva to
have been sustained by thu loss in the
transfer of tho American commercial
marine to the British flag, the enhanced
payments of insurance, tho prolongation
of the war, and the addition of a largo
sum to the cost of the war, aud the sup?
pression of the rebellion, first, were not
included in the treaty of Washington,
and, further and secondly, should not
bo admitted in prinoiple as growing out
of the acts committed by particular ves?
sels alleged to have been enabled to com?
mit depredations upon the shipping of a
belligerent by reason of such want of
diligence in the performance of the neu?
tral obligations as that which ia imputed
by the United States to Great Britain;
and whereas the Government of her Bri?
tannic Majesty has also declared that
the principles involved io the second of
the contentions hereinbefore set forth
will guide their aonduot in future; and
whereas the President of the United
States, while adhering to bis contention
that tho said claims were iuoluded in tho
treaty, adopts for the future the princi?
ple contained in the second of the said
contentions so far as to deolare that it
will hereafter guide the conduot of the
Government of the United States, and
the two countries are, therefore, agreed
in this respeot. In consideration there?
of, the President of the United States,
by and with the advioa and consent of
the Senate thereof, consents that he will
make no olaim on the part of the United
States in respeot of indirect losses as
aforesaid before the tribunal of arbitra?
tion at Geneva. SCHENCK.
THE RELEASE or THE HAVANA STU?
DENTS.-King Amadeus has at length
taken some action in regard to the stu?
dents who, because of their thoughtless?
ness in the cemetery at the grave of Cus
tanon, were cast into prison. There is
no necessity to recount the terrible tra?
gedy by whioh a number of the compa?
nions of these youths were sacrificed by
the Cuban volunteers last November.
After months of imprisonment, these
boys, we are told, are pardoned by tho
King. But what kind of a pardon? Re?
leased from prison, the prison garb re?
moved, they aro placed on board a ship
and seut to Spain. Their pareuts and
home are in Cuba, yet these boys are to
be pardoned by beiug banished from
their native land. Perhaps, after all, it
is for the best. Did they remain in
Cuba, the bloodthirstiness of the volun?
teers might lead them, on the slightest
provocation, to gratify their revenge on
these unfortunate youths. Banishment
and pardon are possibly synonymous
terms in Spain.

The Democratic Convention of the
great State of New York bas in effect
endorsed Greeley and Brown. It has
fairly and enthusiastically committed
itself to* tho Cincinnati platform. It
thus puts behind it the whole record of
the war, accepts the work of the war as
final, (constitutional amendments, negro
suffrage and all,) lifts itself from the
slough of continuous and certain defeat,
and turns hopefully toward the problems
of the future. The Empire State is in
full accord with Virginia, Illinois, Texas,
Connecticut, South Carolina and the
rest. "New York casts her sixty-six

A cumber of Bonapartist agents are

this agenoy a pretext to enter private
residences, where, if the owners be favor?
able to the Empire, he leaves hisoiroular
for distribution in the little oommunity
in whioh the master of the house may
reside. By these agencies, it is stated, a
great deal of money is raised in a quiet
way for transmission to the uncrowned
recluse at Ohiselhurst.
MB. GBKELET'S WHITE HATS.--When
Mr. Greeley left his editorial room ou
resigning the command of the Tribune,
we read that "in one oorner of the room
there are nearly thirty boxes, from the
different New York hatters, each con?
taining a white hat. They had oome in
so fast that Mr. Greeley distributed them
to the employees in the building. The
compositors must have oome in for a
good share, as the majority of them, as
they passed to the composing room that
evening, were crowned with white hats."

meeting of the Legislature, for the fol?
My sense of duty to the people com?
pels me to decline appending my name
to this call. Without discussing the
constitutional question involved, I most
say that I have no confidence that if the
General Assembly did meet, it would
furnish any remedy for existing evils.
Indeed, I am bound to believe that the
proposed remedy wonld *t>n!y increase
During its recent session of 107 days,
the General Assembly had ample oppor?
tunity to correot known evils, from which
tho people still suffer; yet it did nothing.
Those evils, in my opinion, can only be
corrected at the ballot-box.
The General JAssembly cannot, or will
not, remedy them. The Treasury is
empty; the public sohools throughout
the State have dosed, or must soon
close; the asylums of charity and the
houses for the insane, which civilized
communities maintain throughout all
financial emergencies, are, for want of
public, funds, kept open solely by private
oredit; and yet it is proposed that the
General Assembly shall convene, and
thus absorb the moneys that will be paid
into the Treasury for delinquent taxes in
tho month of June. The General As?
sembly certainly can do nothing to re?
store tho broken-down credit of the
State. It cannot raise the value of our
securities a single cent, for nobody will
trust either it or the State officers. It is
looked upon by tho people at large as a
Scotch witch, that may do a great deal
of harm, but can't possibly do any good.
Moreover, I do not think it just that
ths people of the State should be put to
any extra expense to relieve the public
institutions in the present emergency, as
there are several of the State officers who
might well furnish the means to oarry on
the government out of their own pockets,
without asking to bs ro-imbursed, or
having any claim upon the gratitude of
the people for such a contribution to our
publio conscience fund. "Where is our
