Appropriation Cannot ISo Aullcl
Judgo Lawrenco has rendered a decision
in tho matter of tho uso of an appropriation-
to pay oxpeuses incurred before tho
pascago of tho act making it, tho case bo
ing that of Howaid University. Tho Judgo
holds that, as repairs wero nndo on build
ings of tho Howard University in
July and prior to August 7, 1832,
tho dato of tho appropriation, thoro
was no law authorizing theso repairs,
nor was' there any appropilttion
adequato to tho fulfilment of tho contracts
for such repairs when made. Without any
statute on tbo subject tho Unite 1 States
would not bo liablo lor oxpenscs ineurrol,
nnd in addition to this section 3732 of tho
Revised Statutes expressly declares that no
such contract should bo mado under tho
circumstances stated, Tho vouchers for
payment of expenses incurred prior to
August 7, 1832, will therefore bo di3 tllowod.

Biriin, April 21 Tho Aorta Gumma
Gazette to day, In an aitlclo which tho cor
respondent of thu United Press says thoro
Is reason to beliovo was directly inspired
by Pilnco Bismarck, makes a verysavago
attack ujon tho policy of tho Unltod Statea
Gov eminent In protecting tho Interests of
tho American hog rilscr3. Tho OimIWj
article goes beyond tho ordinary limits of
journalism, and accuses tho United Htatos
of attempting to Imltato tho conduct of
England In forcing opium Into China.
'Iho writer asserts that tho recent pro
hibition of tho importation of Ajncrlcau
pork into Germany was nn economic sani
tary imastuo which tho German govern
ment vv as com t clled to tako for tho purpose
of protecting her subjects from pbyslc.ll
dlsenso nnd degeneration much worsa than
tho inforccd Introduction ot opium cutallod
uton tbo Chinese.
Iho (mtzette also makes nn attack unou
tho United States Minister- at Berlin, Mr.
A. A. Sargent, and accuses him of having
done all in his power to iudtico his Govern
ment lo rctallato upon Germany by pro
hibiting tbo importation into tho United
States of all German products possible to
procure elsewhere, until by reason of tho
consequent loss of trado and rovcnuo tho
German Government should bo compelled
to succumb and withdraw all opposition to
tho freo introduction into Germany of all
American hogs and hog products.
Iho paper insinuates that .Minister Sir
pent has been doing this secretly and pro
feses to hav 0 been entirely Ignorant of tho
presence in Berlin of such a powerful oncniy
of German interests until tho discovery was
mado upon tho arrival of certain American
journals containing tho Minister's advices
to his Government.
Tho Gazette coming to specifications statos
that tho German Commercial-Journal, Hand'
le Zctlunn, published in Now York city, in
its issuo of March 10, 1833ipublishcd an ar
ticlo signed by Minister Sargent, In which
ho boldly advocates such a system of retali
ation by tbo United Statc3 unoriiOormany
until tho latter abllshcd tho proliivWon laW3

ucrman consumers ol pork by procisei;
Bamo kind ot argument 03 that
caused tho opium war.
Tho correspondent of tho United Prns.3
was assured, at tho olhco of tho American
Minister, thnt Mr. Sargent had never
written any such article as that attributed
to him, and that tho only production upou
tho subcct to which his namo would havo
been appended, must havo bcou his la?t
report to tho American Stato Departmont,
which was mailed from Berlin on January
Ibis item, ns claimed, contained nothing
concerning retaliation, but was solely a re
port mado up mainly of oxtracts of edi
torials in tho German press going to show
that there wa3 no basis for any restrictions
upon tho importation into Germany of
American poik on tho ground of its infec
tion with trichina?, and that tho best In
formed German editors bellovcd that tho
entire mov etnent against American pork was
purely selfish and contributed by thoso
dealers in German pork whowcrocompollod
to cell native product much lower n ith than
without American competition.
THE CLAYTON-BULWER TREATY.

New York, April 21. Lord Granvlllo's
reply to Secretary Frcllnghuysen's noto 011
tho modification of tho Clayton-Rulwor
Treaty is published. Tho discussion origi
nally aroso under Mr. Ill lino's secretary
ship. Tho reply of England s Foreign
Secretary is a carclully-drawu aud ablo
document, and bears dato December 20,
1882 Tho strongest part of tho note Is
probably tho reply to tho accusations
against Great Britain In tho Honduras
matter, and hero ho quotes bodily tho noto
of John M Claylon, tlio then Secretary of
State, dated July 1, lb30, and tho Bulwer
noto of tho samo dato as ontiroly justifying
tho policy of Her Majesty's Government.
In a general way ho claims that there has
been no treaty violation or ovasionbytho
British Government, and that tho treaty
has never been invalidated and that there is
no necessity for renew ing any of Its provis
ions There might, however, bo advantages
in defining by agreement tho distance from
each end of tho proposed Panama Canal
within which no hostilities should bo per
mitted by belligerents, In order to main
tain tho entire freedom of tho canal, al
though any arrangement would bo at pres
ent premature, when tho condition of tho
