More Trouble in South America War' ;
Inaugurated between Chili and Spain
From the New Vorlt Herald
The Spanish Admiral Pareja has actually
inaugurated another civil war in South A
merica by the blockade of Chilian ports and
the Congress of Chili has declared war
against Spain. President Johnson, in what
he said Io the Minister of the Argentine
Republic on Thursdny, exprcsd pretty
distinctly the interest the Utk0l States
has in all these South Amerioan troubles.
He expressed the "special favor and affec
tion" with which we "regard the republics
on this conlirent ;" and while he regretted
the miseries that wnr must inevitably bring,
he hoped also that the issue "wculd involve
no detriment to the cause of republicanism.''
This expresses the national thought as to
the late of South American Republics,
while it intimates to (lie Argentines that
their present relations to the empire of Bra
zil, in war against a sister republic, neces
sarily lessens our interest in their tvalfare.
In the case of the war just begun against
Chili, there is no such cause to qualify our
interest ; and all our sympathies with an
American republic at war against a Euro
pean monarchy are even intensified by the
arrogance the assertion that might should
make right with which Spnin has entered
upon this contest. It had been supposed
that the dilliculiy between the two Govern
ernmculs was amicably adjusted some time
ago ; but the Spanish Admiral, arriving at
Valpuraiso on September 17 with a con
sideruble fleet, announced in the most
brusque manner, that his government en
tirely repudiated the'nrrngement that had
been made, and authorized him to commence
hostilities at once, if certain things were
not dune by the Chilian Government. The
Unties required were that Chili shotihl
make certain explanations ol supposed out
rases to Spanish dignity, and Balule the
".ot Foutiicomiso. We understand that
; ..ors of the Cahoka Oil Company have
suspended for the present, as the in
dications of the presence of oil do not seem
to increase as the boring progresses. The
gas which first attracted the company to
that locality, still continues to blow off, and
some of them, who pretend to know, think
that oil will yet be found in connection with
the source from which it is derived. The
company have expended about five thousand
dollars in the attempt, and do not feel like
doing more under the circumstances. We
learn that very favorable offers have been
ade to citizens residing near the Incalitv
of the well to induce them to continnn ih

ted suicide Monday morning, by jumping
overboard from the Hoboken ferry. Mr.
King, who has enjoyed no little prominence
in party politics, was born in or near Og-

He graduated nt Union College, and adopted
the profession of la x, which he practiced
with considerable success until within n
few years past, when he relired altogether
irom llie bar. He was a member (Dem

from 1S35 to 183S. From 18-13 to 1847
he was a member of the lower house nf
Congress, and also from 1S49 to 1S53. He
was Ihe Republican candidate for Secretary
of Slate of New York in 1855, when the
party first assumed a distinct oremization
in that State. In 1857 he was elected to
the United States Senate to succeed Hpffl-
ilton Fish, which office he held to ex
piration of his term, March 4th, 1863.
