Whatever the injunctions from Washington may be. the United States author ties are certainly in a great Harry, flier are continually going; from one to another, and bonrlv consultations are in prsirress. The officials ot tne Customs department are most uncommunicative, and an oitsiderbas to draw in Iriences from what Is actually nacsing before his eves. One would suppose that the mstruotions ot the Uaited States Government were not of a char acter, at this present time of peace and with our republican simplicity in matters of state, to warrant the Witbho.ding 01 an answer fiom a natural ques tion to these officials from any citizen. A waut of courtesy of this nature bas truvinted me from tiiv inn to your reader- before this the following circu lar, addressed to the Collector at this port: "Xrasurt Depaetmekt, Aiinl 10, lb(i6. Sir: lam advised through the Mote Department that a scheme is on foot by the I'emuns threatening to violate the neutrality law, and tiiat men and arms aie passing tbrounh you' port for this purpose Yon will exercise due vigilance in preventing, by all lawful means wiibm the scope of your official luies, any infraction of the nejtiatity laws of the Liu ted Htaies, ana when vou have any doubt as to your aatliority or ofho al duty, eonlor w.tti the UiutPQ States Dibtiict Atiornev of your judicial distnet, and be governed by h. s ailyioe. t"H.

Keport also ha it that the wboie available force In the department of the General is ordered here without delay. The meaning ot 'he movement is variously inter Tjreted. The Fenians sav thai the arrival of Euvlish men-of-war la these waters is a menace which the United States art prei arinz for. Another interpre tation is that the United btates are determined to entoree the neutrality laws, which, from tb situa tion ot attain, are tureatnea with infringement Whatever the true reason may be, the following iaei nay assist to a better eompieheuaion of it. The General soon alter his arrival was waited upon b the Collector ot ibe l'ort. whom be ordered to bob the two seized schooners at all hazards, and that if their detention could not ke effected otherwise, he would proclaim marciai law. 1 hree English war vessels arrived yesterday and have none ut the Kt Croix river and Vassama- cuoddj bay.

As pood luck would have it, oue of tbe sudden rain-storms peculiar to the trupiot came np Just as we wore opposite his house, and observing our condi'ion, an Amoncsn, who appears to be the General's Mnjnr JJoma, came out and invited us to enter, a propositiuu which we gladly aceoptod We woro shoo n into a kiuJ of oar Tor, most beautifully furnished with Brussels carue s, six larpe-sizod mirrors, spienilid iu mture in the way ol chairs, tables, solas, eto . ai d maiblo statuary in abundance.

We attempted a conversation with him, but found be could speak nothing but Spanish, fhore were several at the table besides ourselves, viz., an American, a Dane, a Mexican or to, and a Cartha ginian.

He docs not wear spectacles, ana teems likely to retain nis sight tor many years vet. Alter cigars we inaee a graceful adieu, which was rendered by tbe interpreter as only an exnres sionwt that sort can be rendered, in tbe moat flow ing ot Spanish sontenoes.

The Albuuy Journal comments on this as fol lows: "Of couise, in tbe light of all bcientiflo experience, this conclusion is pure nonsense. The cholera travels in waves of the atmosphere. It is an Impalpable, intangible, but potent mala ria, which ca'us its baneful seeds upon the cur rents of the wuid, and travels whithersoever they will bear it. The danger ia in tho fact that the advaneo wave has broken upon our coast.
