Suleiman Pasha remains in his position at the head of the valley of the Zelta, watched by Gen. Vukovics on one bank of the river by the Prince of Montenegro on the er.

LETTER FROM AN ANCIENT FILIBUS TER. t Cause of Walker's Failure-The Nicara a wuan Precident Reviewed. [ Editor Democrat-I have read two articles in the DEMOCRAT in relation to Nicaragua, in which the actions of Gen. Henningsen and Capt. Thomas are mentioned. In the article on Henningsen, mention is - made of the causes which led to Walker's I failure. The statement is entirely incorrect, for Walker was himself the real cause of his failure in Nicaragua. I will explain. The Nicaraguan government previous to Wal 1 ker's advent had made an agreement with Vanderbilt, of New York, for the transporta tion of passengers from Greytown, on the Carriblbean Sea, to the Pacific Ocean, by way of the San Juan river, the Lake Nicaragua, Virgin Bay and San Juan del Sur. This treaty or agreement, which is regarded by drjure and de fa to governments as Wing sacred, was violated by Walker when elected to the presidency of Nicaragua, for he seized the steamers and appropriated to him r self the money which should have gone to the pocket of Vanderbilt. This unjustillable s conduct prompted Vanderbilt to attempt the overthrow of the Walker government. To effect this he sent a man named Spencer to "Central America, with instructions to incite Costa Rica San Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to make common cause for the ex pulsion of Walker. His mission being suc cessful, Gen. Mora, the President of Costa t Rica, invaded Nicaragua with the allied troops, surrounded Walker and would have captured him, but Capt. Davis, of the United States navy, who was on the Pacific coast in the vicinity of Walker, visited him, took him prisoner and sent hini to the United States by way of the Isthmus of Panama. 'This Is a brief statement of what did really occur. Walker had Nicaragua in his hand, but his own bad conduct was the cause of his ruin, for it should be mentioned that the Nicaraguans were quiescent, making no re sistance to his government. I was in the campaign on the San Juan river under Col. Lockridgc, having a company which I took from Mobile, and shall state that, had the Costa Ricans not recaptured one of the Lake Nicaragua steamers, by means of which they took San Carlos, at the head of the San Juan river and the Lake Nicaragua, the river steamers and the Fort Sorapiqui, the expedition which left New Orleans in December, 1ti56, and arrived at the harbor of Creytown on the 2d of January, 1857, would have proceeded tip the river San Juan at the instant of its arrival, and relieved Walker front the peril which environed him and driven the Central American forces out of Nicaragua. But the river wasblocked, and we were compelled to remain at Punta Arenas until the old steamer Bolivia could be repair ed for our troops. This delay was inevitable, but even with this delay we took Serapiquu and advanced on Castillo; but the unaccount able conduct of Col. Titus paralyzed our efforts, and the expedition was broken up. A great deal has been said and written about this expedition on the San Juan, but all the statements are false, and most of them ridiculous. In the book he published after returning to the United States, Walker pre- l sented every fact, and wts guilty of much prevarication. His obhject was to shift the l blame from his own shoulders to that of other parties, but ie lirst vioilated the treaty be tween Vaiiderbilt nand time Nicaraguan gov ernient, and then he suffered his little force to be surrounded by the Costa Ricans, who would have butchered hiin and his men but for the timely interference of Capt. Davis. R. The Sane Souci 'ociai Club give an entertain. ment et Dtlichaise Park to-dayat 8 'clock p. *,p and we are under eb!!Zati~ze fox invitatiors. FOREIGN NEWS. A TERRIBLE CONFLAGRATION. St. Johns, N. B.. Destroyed by Fire $10,@@S,000 to $15,000,000 Worth of Property Burned-Lives Lost. [Special to the Demo"rat.l BOsTON, June 21.---A lire at St. Johns, N. B., last night, burned over an area of two him (ired acres, about three-fourths of the city. The loss is estimated at from $10,000,000 to $15,000,000. Five men and two infants are now known to have lost their lives, and many are missing. LATER. PORTLAND, Me., June 21.-A dispatch from St. Johns, dated at 9 a. in., says that the fire commenced at York Point slip, and swept southward through residences to King street, where it spread and burned all of the public buildings and hotels and the entire business portion of the place, including the wharves. There !s a great dread of starvation, since not a grocery or provision store Is left. Fifteen thousand persons are homeless. All the business portion of the town and half the residences are gone. The Mayor has called a public mieting to take measures for the relief of the sufferers. Among the buildings destroyed by the fire are the Montreal Banking Agency, Nova Scotia Savings Bank, Bank of New Bruns wick and Maritime Bank, St. Andrew's Church, Centennary Church, German Meth odist Church and Trinity Whurch, the Custom House, Academy of Music, the Lyceum Hall, Royal Hotel, City Hall, Victoria Hotel, Vic toria School, Waterworks buildings, several banking firms' offices, Western Union Tele graph office, all the principal insurance offices, and three newspaper offices. Parnament Providing for Continlgeneles. [Soecial to the Democrat.] LONDON, Juno 21.-The Poal publishes in an official form that the session of Parliament will not close without sufficient steps being taken to provide for contingeneles, which are only too distinct. British interests are deep ly involved in the questions at stake in the East, and for their further protection the Brit ish purse must be opened. The French Muddle. Ikpecial to the l" umocrat.J LoNDoN, June 21.-- t, thi openlr>f of the debates in the French Ch 4,anr of Deputies the platform of .fno le(abinet appears to have become Riore and more narrowes. The Royalists will stand by the Cabinet, but the 14onapartists, imme diately after the dissol'ition of the (hambers, it is said, will advocate the continuance of the rule of Preuidenti MacMahon until 1880, but will demand an appeal to the people after the expiration of his term; upon the question of the future form of government. The Piseqslon of Dl..olulion. [Special to the Democrat.] VERsAAILLr9, June 21.--The discussion upon the report of the various bureaus in favor of the dissolution of the Chamber of Deputies was begun in the Senate to-day. Victor Hugo, in a long speech, pointed out the importance of tlhe Senate in a crisis like the present ouiue, where there is a serious conflict between the Executive and Legislative departments of the State. German Commerhlal Conference. lSpecial to the Democrat.] BERLIN, June 21.-A Congress of the lead ing commercial firms of Germany was held at Frankfort yesterday. It was resolved to ask the government to suspend its free trade pol icy and to institute inquiries as to the State of trade and industry in Germany at the present time. Republican Ntrategy.

Magnlficent Corn Crop' -DescriptIon of a Texas CIiy. SAN ANTONIO, .June 15, 1877. Erdior Demorrr' - After a protracted drouth, lasting from May 3 to June 5, this portion of Texas had a hine shower, followed, to this date, by two other fine rains. This insures a splendid corn crop, perhaps the heaviest ever made in this section of the State. It also insures luxuriant pastures and fat beeves. Truly, these rains have rejoiced the hearts of the farmers and stockmen, and, in fact, of all portions of the community. Since the advent of the RAILROAD, IMPROVEMENTS are going on all over the city. Fine build ings, superior in architectural design and finish to any heretofore erected, are in process of construction in various parts of the city, but especially fine business houses upon Main street and the two plazas- -main and military. The city has recently had two more iron bridges thrown across the San Antonio river, which have contributed greatly to the comfort and convenience of the public, as well as additional foot bridges. In the neigh borhood of the railroad depots, buildings have been run up in great numbers and with great rapidity; but chiefly frame buildings of an inferior character. WAl ER WORKS have been projectid, and our city fatiiers en tered heartily into the design and were anxious for their construction; but the tax payers of San Antonio have evinced the same penny-wise, pound-foolish, policy that has recently characterized those of your city with regard to the Pacific Railroad, and re fused to sustain the city authorities in the necessary appropriation for this much needed improvement. This is a crving necessity, however? and cannot much longer he post poned without converting one of the healthi est cities of the United States into one of the most unhealthy. San Antonio has three pressing needs. Proper sewerage, gooid water, and an immense improvement on the present sidewalks--which are the roughest to be found in any town in the United States. Withal, San Antonio is a most PI(TURESQUE AND BEAUTIFUL PLACE, with two limpid streams of water running through it, spanned by numerous bridges; its many remnants of old Spanish buildings and others of more recent date but still parta king of the same architecturar1 character, with massive stone walls, flat roofs, and only one or two stories high. There are about a dozen churches, all built of massive rock, of which the largest is the Rcnuraz Cathc riil, occupy-, Ing the site between the main and military plazas, of the old church of San Fernando, FOUNDED IN 1730. The old church was occupied by the Mexi cans under Cos in his defense of San Antonio against the Texans under Milam and John son, and he planted cannon in its tower. The four sides of these plazas are still largely oc cupied by old Spanish one-story, flat-topped buildings. They are however, gradually }riving place to large business houses. The Veramendi house near which Milam fell, and many other of the old historic landmarks, yet remain on the streets debouching upon the main plaza, and distant not more than fifty or sixty yards. The Roman Catholic churches are massive structures, but their interior finish are severely plain. On the contrary, the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Mark's, with a remarkably plain exteritr, has an equally remarkably beautiful interior finish. Perhaps the handsomest structure devoted to religious purposes is THE JEWISH TEMPLE BETHEL. The last two are situated upon Zavis Square in what is called Alamo City. On this square and in its immediate neighborhood are many handsome residences. I will perhaps, gie a sketeh of Ban Antonio in a ftture letter de scribing also the missions and the most in teresting features of the environs. The citizens have projected the building of street railroads, but so far the matter has ended there. But this, like the waterworks, is becoming so urgent a necessity that it must, before long, become an accomplished fact. Business men complain of hard times but I don't think in the three years that I have been here, there have been three fail ures. This speaks well for the safe character of the business done here. L. F. D. LAW IN EA T FELICIANA. CLINTON, La., June 19, 1877. Editor Democrat James M. Mulky was cut with a knife at Midway, in this parish, by John G. Briscoe (both white), on the 9th, and died on the 14th inst. A preliminary examination was to-day had before Judge J. G. Kilbourne, and the accused was remanded to jail without bail, to answer the crime of murder. Yours truly, F. McCLELLAN, THE ALLEGED BRITISH *UBJECr. [Jackson Clarion.] Representations having been made to the British Minister at Washington that McClellan, who was killed in the Kern. per affray, was a British subject tle Administration was requested by hm tc inquire tuto the facts. Hon. Luke Lea United Mtatbs District Attorney, was in structed by the Department of Justice tc make the necessary investigation, ant Mr. G. K. Chase was commissioned b3 the Pr-aident to take part in the inves. t tigation. They MSve Visited Keu4 ' ' county, and conducted the inquiry, at r we have the best reason for believing, - in a fair and impartial manner. The citizens of Kemper extended every cour tesy to the comma ion and facilitated the investigation Touching the itizensbip of McClel lan, it was ascertained that he was born in Scotland and came to the United States in 1818; that after residing in Maine and Alabama about six years, he took up his abode in Kemper county, Miss.; that he was never naturalized; that he pursued his avocations in Kem per, made money, and acquired consid erable property in real and personal estate, and declared his intention, when purchasing a tract of land some years ago, to make it a model farm and spend the remainder of his days upon it; that during the late war he volunteered, with other Mississippians, in the Con federate service, and served at Bowling Green sixty days; that he afterward worked as a mechanic in the Confeder ate shops at Mobile, and that, while thus employed he, with other workmen, was at times called out to perform mili tary service; that he claimed exemption from said service as a British subject, and laid his complaint before the Brit ish consul at Mobile; that the consul refused to interfere in his behalf on the ground that by voluntarily enlisting in the military service of the Confederate States he had forfeited his right to Brit ish protection. In reference to the affray in which he lost his life, it was ascertained that he was not summoned by the Sheriff on his posse (as first erroneously stated), but that his participation on the side of the Chisholm party was entirely-volun tary; that he armed himself with a shotgun and made defiant remarks and threats in regard to the other party, go ing so far as to say that it was time to begin the shooting and the like; also, that if the crowd killed the prisoners there would be enough of the friends of the latter left to waylay and kill their slayers, and that the officers would be taken off first, etc. In the melee he was killed, how or by whom is not stated. It can well be imagined that as he had armed himself for the affray, and assumed the championship of one of the parties, he was liable to suffer the consequences, which he had shown himself willing to do, as he was a warm friend of the Chisholm party and unquestionably brave to rashness. We presume the District Attorney and Mr. Chase will report the facts touching the alleged British citizen ship of the deceased, but the statement that they will declare him a British subject is simply preposterous. It is no part of their duty to pronounce an opin ion on the subject. They will leave that partof the matter to bedetermined by the representatives of the British Govern ment and the United States authorities at Washington. We will add that there can be but one conclusion, and that is theone announced by the British Consul during the war, viz: that McClellan forfeited his claim to protection as a British subject, and so it will turn out another case of Much Ado About Nothing.

PRESIDENT HAYES. DEFENDED BY A DEMOCRAT. Critical Review of His Policy by One who Favored the Election of Tielde. IN. Y. Bnn.] BS. Louis, June 13.-I like Mr. Hayes. He has repudiated the traditions of the Republican party. He has utterly ig nored the precedents established by Mr. Lincoln. He has rebuked the Radical elements which kept the party in power since the death of Lincoln. He is array ing in bitter opposition to bib adminis tration most powerful and popular lead ers--men like Roscoe Conkling, James G. Blaine, Ben Butler, Ben Wade, Wen dell Phillips the Chandlers, Camerons, Boutwells, hafts. etc. His administra tion has so far been of benefit to the country and the Democratic organiza tion. $e has not acted in the interest of the Repubican party. He has adopted c doctrines of gov ernment. e has discarded every ordinary obligation of gratitude and honor to men like Packard and Cham berlain, the Chandlers and the Camer one, who stole the presidency and pre sented it to him. He has, by his own deliberate act plead quietly and put the official seal of the presidency to the record that every single electoral vote of three Southern States was stolen to count in the man who never was elected by the people and has no legal title to the presidency. I like Mr. Hayes. I like him because he represents innovation and ideas. No longer can it be said that the receiver is no better than the thief. No longer l can it be said that there is honor among thieves. No longer can it be said that the creators are stronger than the cre ated. No longer can it be said that the office should seek the man and not the man the office. No longer can it be doubted that there is such a thing as an irony of fate. See how, almost with the I very first breath of offioial life, Mr. Hayes destroys the very authors of his being! No longer can it be doubted that conscience doth make cowards of us all. See how Mr. Hayes utterly re t rudiates Republican and vindicates - biemocratic doctrines. B I like Mr. Hayes. He is doing much 3 better than could be expected. He strives assiduously to wash away the letter of that terrible syllable which is s stamped upon his brow. He struggles I hard to lull his troubled conscience into V repose, to calm the consciousness of - crime and atone for it by improved con r duct. For Mr. Hayes has read the clas s I h'story. has heard of Banquo's ghost. a° ,-'-n a Richard III. had visions, what muisgt be the slumber of a Hayes? There are ;ales that no walls ! unfold, and secrets that Ftuman lips utter. They remain forever burl? in that most mysterious and inscrutable thing called the human heart. Whose l heart is freer' from regirt, reproach, wrong or guilt-that of R. B. :yes, or that of Samuel J. Tilden? Who do:ibts that .n id. a 11 the ceremony and servili ty, all thle show and glitter, all the feasts, fun and fawning at the White House, there does not often appear, like Banquo's ghost, the reproachful vision of him who of right should be the occu pant? They have kept from the White House the body of Samuel J. Tilden only, not his spirit. I like Mr. Hayes. I like the way he has snubbed Blaine and Conkling and Cameron, the real representatives of his party, and one of whom was its real choice for the presidency. I like to see three members in the Cabinet who for six years were in bitter opposition to the President's party and predecessor. I like to see his " Southern policy." Mr. Hayes and all his organs call it an "ex periment" only, and ask for a suspen sion of judgment until time has shown its wisdom or unwisdom. Yes, it is an experiment. But it will prove to be an experiment that will cost the very life of the Republican party. It will be like the experiment of the mad medical scientist, of whom I read in boyhood. He killed a human body to have a vivi section, and 1o test whether, by putting the various parts together, he could not viviflcate it. The result of the experi ment of Mr. Hayes will be the same. After he gets through with it he will find that the life spirit of his party has departed, and that all the notions and theories of Evarts, Schurz & Co. cannot again restore the dead corpse to life. His policy may be an "experiment" to himself and the country; to the Repub li -an party 1t is a vivisection. I like Mr. Hayes, He does not know what he Is doing. For the last ten years at least, the Republican party has owed its ascendency mainly to its dar leg, defiant, able audacity. There may have been abler political parties in the past; there never was one as bol4 as the Republican party since the death of Lincoln. From the day which drove Seward and all of Lincoln's Cabinet, excepting one, out of the party, to the days of military reconstruction and robbery, the impeachment of Johnson, the adoption of the fifteenth amend ment, the disgrace of Sumner, Greeley, Trumbull and Schurz, the exposureof Credit Mobilier, and Belkuap, and Bab cock, boldness alone saved the party from destruction. I remember well how one day. shortly after Grant's first In auguration, a gentleman who was then a Republican Senator, and is now one of the mest influential Cabinet MinistersI of Mr. Hayes turned pale in reading the telegraphic dispatches, and .x claimed: "T~his is terrible, terrible! It will inevitably destroy the party." It was the evidence in the Black Friday investigation, tracing money from the hands of James Fisk and Brother-in law Corbin to the White House. I re member the consternation of the same distinguished gentleman at the failure of the impeachment of Johnson. Then, too, he saw the inevitable ruin of the Republican party. I remember, too, his grave fears on account of the fif teenth amendment. It was then a moat unpopular measure, even with R~epubli- a cans. Wherever the question of negro 2 suffrage had been submitted to the peo- r pie, it had been defeated by overwhelm- f Ing majorities, tens of thousands of R3 publicans voting against it. The in fluen- a tial member of Mr. Hayes's Cabinet, to his honor be it said, never would have a dared to force negro suffrage upon thet people. But the party leaders did. If any body spoke about Black Friday the an swer was, "Rebel !" If anybody spoke against negro suffrage the answer was, 4 "Rebel!" If any one spoke against a robbery and corruption, violation4 of a law and constitution, the answer was still, "Rebel I" Even last fall the main answer we received upon the stump when we spoke of Belknap, Robeson, Colfax, Credit Mobiller, Babcock, Whis ky Ring, and the like was simply, "You are a rebel!" All this is now over. Mr. Hayes has broken the spell. He has taken a rebel into hib Cabinet, is a pointing rebels to offices, and openly concentrating all his efforts upon gain ing the support of rebels to his adinln. tration by making it especially agree able to rebels. I like Mr. Hayes. He follows the advice of that distinguished member of his Cabinet whose opinions on past critical moments of the Republican party I have alluded to. Had the lead ers of the party acted in accordance with those opinions, and not acoording to their, diametrically opposed, own, there would have been no Republican party for some years. As it is, there will soon not be much of one, if Mr. Hayes will only stick to his "policy'" and his experiments through his term. He has repudiated the men and meas ures, the principles and precedents, the very spirit and character of his party. He has broken the spell of the bloody shirt and silenced the cry of rebel. He has kicked the men to the rear who saved the Republican party in the past, and made him what he is, and showered honors upon those who did their best to destroy his party. A house divided against itself cannot stand. Nobody can live without breath. A party can not exist without principles. An admin istration can not succeed without a party.

Example,,. l- [Froms a New Yrk Letter,] It has been of late proposed to raise by Puli subscription enough to enable Mr. Evarts to hold the office of Secre tary of State without damage to his private interest. One of the best feat ures in any such measure would be to ° hbolish his Vermont farm, which is said to exhaust the best part of his in come. He has 70 head of cattle, 20t) sheep, 16 horses, and 25 swine. The ex tent of land is 800 acres. Last year 200 tons of bay were cut, costing the pro e prietor not much more than double the r market price. More than 2000 bushels of corn were raised at an estimated loss of 50 cents a pound, and therefore ought to be of good quality. His pork is estimated at 20 cents a pound, and chickens $3a pair. As long as he has ° to support this establishment Mr. ° Evarts will not be able to serve the na ° tion as Secretary of State without a lib eral subscription. Beecher last year raised about fifthen thousand bushels of onions on his Peekskill farm. They cost him $1 50 a bushel, according to estimate, and as the market price in this city was $1, any one can see how-much he made. Beech er can send beef to the New York mar ket at fifty cents a pound, and can raise oats at as low a market price as $2 a bushel. His butter is reckoned at $1 25 a pound and his eggs at 75 cents a t dozen. I do not credit the report thet " he has a fine bull named "Theodore" and a boar called "Frank." Beecher will not libel his animals. He cleared $40,000 by lecturing last winter, and if he maintains such an income he will be able to continue farming. Gough lectures five times a week. his fee being $200. He has a farm at Wor cester, which at one time contained 175 acres. He has no children, but his ex penses are very heavy, and to bring matters in a snug shape he sold a part of his land and reduced the farm to 125 acres, which is as extensive as his in come will admit. A few years ago his wife, who was a Yankee girl, undertook to raise fancy fowls, which some say are very profitable. She got up a very nice variety, and at a rather reasonable ex pense, for the Shanghais did not cost more than $75 a pair. The Cochin Chi nas were a little cheaper, and bantams could be rated at from $35 to $40. After stocking the place with these rare biras, Gough. as it is said, found that if they were to be kept up he would "be ob liged" to lecture on Sundays as well as on week days to make a living. When it cost $15 to winter a chicken, a man needs a good income. The system was, therefore, changed; the fowls were :bol ished, and regalar crops were tried with decided success. As longtas Gough's rye does not cost more than $5 per bushel, and other crops are kept at an equally reduced rate, his present in come will enable him to live in a very decent manner. There is nothing like a farming life for men who haveyplenty of money. *The nopulation of Great Britain has, since 1801, increased from 10,00(,000 to 28,000,000, and the Lcndon Timea esti mates that it will be doubled in fifty four years. How to feed it will be the great difflculty, for a leading British agriculturist said in a recent speech: "It appears to me, and it has been ob served by many of our leading, men, that a steady deterioration is going on in the producing powt-rs of this island."
