They have long been known, and for many years the peple in that vicnity have been in the habit of going ti them a, unmolested for their supply of salt. When the if territory in which these salt pIts are located was acquired from Mexico, the United States re n etived the population there as Amerleau citi iens, and guaranteed to them all their rights as ti It is those people. Mexicans by birth, but made Americans under the treaty, that are causing the trouble, and not Mexicans fr ,m the other side of the boundary. They believe the 1 claim of the pretended owner of the sall tits is i, fraudulent, and that nei years free access to the p, its have given them a right to continued use, and that the tits have iecome public property, which even the State government has not the s right to convey to private Individuals, and to be nompelled to pay two dollars a bushel for what d has heretofore bees looked upon as their own, haa so influenced them, that failing to obtai n redress, they have on this as on other occa 3, sions, sought to indicate what they thought to y be their rights in the matter.

[Pall Mall Gazette. loember l.J p At a recent meeting of the Paris Academy of 5ciences a paper was read by M. de1 hes saps, In which some further particulars are given of the proposed carml across the Ieth inus of Darien to connect the Atlantic With the Pacific Ocean. The linc'advocated by N'. de Lesseps, starting from t re Pacific coast, ascends in the first place the river Tuyra as far as the Island of Pirlaque or Alligators. From this point a straight cu(tting 16,200 metres long, connects the Tuyfrt with the Chucunaque, near the point where'the Tupies flows into the latter river. The line then ascends the Chucunaque for 11,400" metres; then, turning to the northeast 1b con tinues up the valley of the ýflati, to the point where, for reasons of economy it) would be preferable to make a tunnel rather than continue a deep cutting This tunne) paseses to the south of the Peak of Oandi, under the remarkable ridge from which on one side anarm of the Tuquess, the Tuplsa and the Tiati flow towards the Pacific, and on the other the Tolo and the Acanti to the Atlantic. On emerging the canal continues through an open cutting about ten kilometres long, down the valleys of the Acanti and Tote, to the dee) waters of Port (landi. The probable length of the tunnel Is estimatod at between thirteen and fourteen kilometres, and the cost of mak ing the whole canal at 600,000,(O,0 francs. Since the reading of the paper a surveying party, under the command of Lieut. Wyse, of the French navy, the officer who commanded the expedition which made the preliminary survey last year, has sailed from St. Nazaire to complete the work then begun. Proposed War With Mexico in 187. IN. Y. Herald.J WASHINGTON, Dec. 14.-The sub-committee I of the House Military Affairs Committee con tinued their researches among the archivesof the State Department to-day, and discovered, among other things, that in 1875 the United States had a very narrow escape from war t with Mexico. The committee believe the evi- I dence to show that it was the deliberate pur poseof the administration of President Grant t or at least of th President himself to preeip tate troops n the border. The gunboat Rio Bravo, the troops under Col. Potter and ' the volunteer forces under Texan command ars were to begin the work. The latter force was to cross the Rio Grande and burn certain f property that was believed to be headquarters ror Cortina's forces. The gunboat and United I States infantry were to protect the Texan in- 4 vaders. The consul at Matamoros was duly e Informed of the plan, and as Secretary Fish was not a party to this plan he at once Inter poed his oflices, and the commander of the Io Bravo was instructed not to carry out the details of the plan.
