Since the appearance of our last, we
have received intelligence which gives us
ample reason to believe that the recent out?
rages on American Rights at San Juan and
its vicinity have ban in no manner insti?
gated nor countenanced hy the British Gov?
ernment, and that they will be promptly
rebuked if not expressly disavowed. They
are simply the art- of individuals, 'dressed
in a little brief authority.' who availed
themselves of the absence of express in?
structions from London to act as if the Clay?
ton Treaty had never been made, or were
only so much waste paper. Some of them,
fully aware of that Treaty, were chagrined
by its virtual abandonment of British pre?
tensions to the Protectorate of Mosquito
and the possession of San Juan (their
'Greytown') and have been exercising
their bullying propensities on our citizens
and vessels there on the principle of one
mentioned in Scripture who is represented
as cutting his capers vehemently, "because
he knoweth bis time is short."
That the British officials at San Juan and
vicinity have been expressly and repeated?
ly ordered from London to refrain from mo?
lesting or interfering with American citi?
zens or vessels in any port of Central Ame?
rica or upon its coasts, we are fully assured:
that those orders have ere this been re?
ceived and wnl henceforth be obeyed, we
will not doubt. We are not so clearly as?
sured, but have good reason to believe, thtt
the British occupation, protectorate, or
whatever it may be called, will soon be
withdrawn from ' Greytown ' and all that
part of the Central American coast, as we
trust it also may from all Central America
so that tue amicable relations of the two
countries may be preserved and secured by
a full ar.d faithful execution of the terms of
the Clayton Treaty. With this, no new
ireaty i> ncuitu, ana .ne witnar&w&J trom
Nicaragua of the insolent and mischief
making Chatfield would dispel the last
cloud hitherto obscuring the prospect of
continued amity.
There really is no excuse for trouble in
that quarter. The United States and Great
Britain, as the two largest commercial pow?
ers on the globe, have a common and pecu?
liar interest in the connection of the.
Pacific with the Atlantic by a Ship Canal
through Central America ?an interest far
transcending in importance that of any ter
oflered all Central America from Mexico to
Venezuela in fee simple, on condition that
-be would impede the construction of the
0< ean Ship Canal for a bare half-century,
we know that it would be her interest to
refuse, and we presume her statesmen are
wise enough to know it. Just so of the
United States. We want no possessions
there, no exclusive advantages; nothing
but a Ship Canal open on equal terms to
the whole world. We wish to let alone
and be let alone, save in the way of kind?
ness and mutual good offices. Let Great
Britain but reciprocate this feeling, and the
have shown that the work will be far short?
er, easier and less expensive than has hith?
erto been calculated?and a new era in the
world's history opened. All offensive acts
or exclusive ore-tensions are at war with the
The ."Naral Service.
We like Secretary Graham's Report,
though we did not throw out articles of
the earliest moment. It is a sensible, sug?
gestive document, with more of the spirit
of Reform in it than has been evinced by
any previous Naval Secretary since Mr.
Bancroft. Its proposition that the number
of Officers in the Navy be reduced to GO
Captains. 60 Commander?, 300 Lieu?
tenant-, der ., is identical in spirit and pur?
pose with one we were permitted to make
when in Congress, but not enabled to carry.
The Country is paying at least ?300,000
annually to Naval Officers who do nothing,
and for whom it has nothing to do?some
of whom are no longer capable of doing
anything. It is profligate to keep these
men forever in office at high salaries when
we never expect to require nor use their ser?
vices. Give each Officer not needed in the
service one vear*s full pay and a pension
thereafter equal to one-quarter what his
pay would have been, requiring of him no
further service in return, and they will
have been dealt with generously, while the
Treasury will save by the change at least
Two Millions within the next ten years.
This, considering how staggering the Na?
tional Expenditures now are, and how
strong is the tendency to increase them on
position was much less radical than the
Secretary's?merely that no new appoint?
ments or promotions should be made to any
rank or grade while the Department had
already Officers in that grade lor whom it
had no employment?and this, though it left
every man in the possession of his present
WetTusT\he-D Secretary's suggestion will
have better fortune.
? Mr. Graham seems under great con?
cern of mind on the subject of Punishments
in the Navy, in view of the recent Aboli?
tion of Floeeine by Congress. We wish
he had a word to say of Rewards as well
as Punishments. Hitherto the Officers
have had the Rewards and the Seamen the
Punishments: we think a more equal di?
vision may be made to the signal advantage
appointments, of Midshipmen shall hence
be not half the excuses for punishing that
there have been. Why should it be ne
cessary in a Republic to urge some such
adjustment as this ?
Most of the Secretary's suggestions meet
our approval, especially that of distin?
guishing the Naval expenditures for ordi?
nary purposes from those for permanent ad?
ditions to the National Property in the
shape of Ships. Docks, Ordnance, Materi?
als, Arc We like alsoto hear that the Ex
peuditurcs ol the mxt year are to be lower
than those of the present. But they might
be still reduced?much reduced?without
detracting from the Navy's proper efficien?
cy. Let Congress be encouraged by a
contemplation of those Retrenchments the
Secretary suggests to devise and enact fur?
ther and still greater reductions in the cost of

setts Whig State Convention were about
right, but the throwing overboard of Hor?
ace Ma>">' was not so regarded by very
ni?oy Whigs of that State. The revolt
against that unwise step was not confined
to the vote for Congress nor to any section
of the State. We believe it has given the
Free Soilers their balance of power in the
Legislature, and will probably give them

from his Message transmitted to the Leeis
ttion of the Northern sentiment,

and town in the State, whose duty it shall be to
examine all manufactures brought into their Dis?
tricts : and let a tax of ten per cent, be imposed
upon such as are found to be manufactured or pro?
duced in the Non-Slaveholding States. It should
be provided, moreover, that all merchandise be
taken and reearded as the production of Non
Slaveholding States, unless sufficient proof to the
contrary is afforded by the vender. I would also
recommend that such a tax be imposed upon for?
den goods imported through Son-Slareliotdinz
litotes, as will offer effectual encouragement to
direct importation into our own ports. '
This, you perceive, is no contingent, nor
partial, nor casual operation: the excise
proposed is to be levied on all the fabrics of
all non-Slaveholdiug States, whether they
have stood erect like Vermont, or consist?
ently groveled like Iowa, or tried walking
vania. It is to be imposed without limit of
duration, without discrimination between
the goods or wares ot Gerrit Smith and
those of men who give away their princi?
ples in order to sell their goods: even the
New-York Committee of Safety must pay
the ten percent, in spite of the constitution?
al inhibition of any such impost. True,
vou will say, 'This tax is not imposed yet,
and won't be," but the animus is there, and
will do its work in time.
?There is a column more like the above,
but we must be content with the following
? x* r;.ct:
" If no consideration of prudence or patriotism
can restrain the majority from the ncn-slavehold
inc states in their head-long career of usurpation
and wrong; and should they repeal or essentially
modify the fugitive slave Saw. The most prompt
and decisive action vrulbe required at your hands.
In either event, I would earnestly recommend
that a convention of the people be called at once,
to take into consideration the mode and measure
of redress, as well as the means of providing for
" Virginia, in this event, will have nothing to
reproach herself with, however much she may
have to reeret. She has advocated the principles
of free oral Constitutional Government with un?
wavering firmness. Neither the menaces nor the
arms of Great Britain could extinguish the love
of liberty in her bosom j and when the federal
government usurped an authority which threat?
ened our independence, she stood the champion
among toe nations oi .ue em tu.
All this, you see. means that if Virginia

destroyed by tire this morning, and it is supposed
that 20 of the unfortunate lunatics perished ia the

discovered, bat the keepers, supposing the noise
to be the accustomed ravine,*, gave no heed to
them until they discovered that the building was
