account was written, that the exiles enjoyed tolei
able health, and were mora reeonciled ihan at fir
to their unaccountable captivity. Kossuth, Hatth)

where cells were assigned them for hibitatio
more savoring of Newgate than of honorable c<i|

and they were not allowed to pass the walls of th
barrack without a strong escort. The Turkis
officers and soldiers have treated the prisoners wit
deference. snd the Turkish population with ever
mark of Oriental respect, Kossuth being with thei

destinies of eastern Europt*. This universal resp?i
was especially evident on the occasion 'f Kossuth
reception of his children. Three of them, interest

Austrian government, not without foreign interce

Madame Kossuth vrere allowed to ffo and met

[From tk* PbUadalptiia Le?grr Aug M ]
It was determined (hut the order ol business shalI
be the statement by the delegates of the condition
of the common tcho<>U in the various States.
Thomas Allen CLirkt-, of Louisiana, made a
statement of the condition of common school* in
that State The system of cominou school* has
been lately erected. Under the old method, several
colleges wete founded, which have received
nearly half a million of dollars in donations from
the state. These ins'itutions have failed; only
one college now is in existence?the Metltoiist
College at Jackson. In 18-11, the citizens of the
Second Municiwilny of New Orleans commeuctd
a movement wfiich ha* led to great improvement*

supported hi public expense, (o which children are
admitted free. The number of schools and ?< -holars
hun gieutly increased In 1841 there were only
seventy-five scholars in the Second Municipr lny of
M?w Orleans; how there are three thousand,
11 ud lilieen hundred la the First Municipality, betides
a large number of pupils in the Third Municipality.
The University in New l >rleans is in a
tlourjching condition. The public school system
has been adopted throughout the State, though
not extremely successful. The system is managed
in its general details by a superintendent of common
Ci. F. Thayer, of Uoston, gave a sketch of the
Ameiicnn Institute of Instruction. It was not a
Massachusetts association alone, but a general one.
It wus founded twenty-one years ago, by delegates
from sixteen States. It in<ets anuuilly, and Uissemmates
information by means of lectures, addiesses,
debates, Arc , which are published in
twenty volumes of the Transactions ot the luiflitute.
Mr Green, of Massachusetts, one of the assistants
of the secretary of the board of Education,
gave a sketch of the duties of the " assistants.
They visit first the children, and endeavor to operate
upon their minds, to become friendly with
th< m, and encourage them. They go as friends of
education, as friends of the teacher, to aid and
counsel him iu his work. Meetings of teachers
are called by these officers; some are held for two
or three dtiya. The object is to give useful hints
to the teachers: to instruct them in the best means
of teaching, and to smooth their labors. Another
duty of the " assistants" is to call meeting* of the
people; to counsel with them, and discuss the subject
of education, ita means and mod<-8. Efforts
have also been made to grade the schools into primary,
intermediate, and high schools. Difficulties
are in the way, in consequence of the plan of separating
school districts?a svBteni which is overcome
in some instances, and which is gradually
vieldinir. The narents furnish the school books to
the children, except where poverty prevents, when
they are found at the expense of tlie town.
&imuel Newbury, of Michigan, said that they
had now established in 'hat State "unionschools,
in which there were four departments, ranging
from primary education to that suitable for young
men about 10 enter college?a State normal school
has been projected, and will be in operation in
about a year. The State University is now in a
healthy etate. Although the school system has
lair prospects, there aie about fifty thousand children
in the State who do not attend any schools.
Though this is a large number, Michigan is in
much better condition in this rcspect than most of
the Western States.
Dr. Cutter, formerly of New Hampshire, said
that in that State all the schools are free; managed
by committees as in Massachusetts, and supported
by taxation. In 1(440, the pro|>ortion of |>ersons
who could rot read and write, was one to one
thousand. The general system is managed by
county superintendents. There are county institutes
of teachers, holding two sessions yearly.
The int-titutea are attended by u board of inBtruction.
The cause of education in New Hampshire
is onward, and they find it necessary to increase
the value of the staple they ex|m>rt to other States,
nnniel), the men and women they raise and send
Governor Haines, of New Jersey, detailed the
Mtbool s) stem in that State. There are educational
institutes and societies in several of the counties.
They attract considerable interest. Appropriates
are made by the towns for the sup,>ort of
schools. There are no free schools thtough the
S'ate, though several towns and dis ricta have petition*
d the l^egislatMie several tunes for permit ion
to rait-e taxes for the support of free schools.
John Griscom, of New Jetsey, said there are
thi?e hundred children in the public schools at Burlington
city. In the outer dt-tricts of the county,
aHairs are managed defectively ; schools are k?-pt
> up only while the public appropriation latt*. The
people will not tax themselves to 8Uj|>"tt the

De Sooza stated further, that he had received
order* iroin H. M. the Emperor, to protest, as he
protested, in the most formal manner, against the
capture and burning of the bark Santa Cruz, and
to claim from the government of H. B. M. the exemplary
punishment of the commander of the Cormorant,
and the issue of an order against tho
repetition of a similar occurrence; and furthermore,
urged a claim of indemnitication to whom it may
concern, for the damages caused by said capttutl
and burning.
A tier reviewing the contents of De Souza's note,
Mr Hudson, the British Charge, replied, and attempted
a justification of the act, stating that the
bark Santa Cruz was seized on account of being
eugaged in the piratic al tratlic of alaves, and wan
destroyed in const quence of being unseaworthy
and incapable of undertaking a voyag? to the
nearest lintiah Vice Admiralty Court, in order to
be tried, and that the captor of the Santa Cruz is a
competent judge of the piratical character of any
vessel whatever; and that he is competent to de.
termine iu view of existing proofs, whether a veat
el with a alave deck, and fitted out for that trade.
id employed or nut in that piratical trade; and that
the captor of the Santa Cruz is, moreover, authorized
and instructed I>y an act of the British Parliament,
liHBt-d u|x>n Art. 1 of the treaty for the suppression
ol the slave trade, concluded between
( real Britain and Brazil, Nov. 23, 1826, to proceed
with such piratical vessels as this Santa Cruz, in
?uch a manner a* he may consider best calculated
to carry out the intention ol the high contracting
parties and most in accordance with public justice.
Mr Hudson then expresses his surprise at the
protest ol iJe Souza, wlien the Brazilian government
were in possession of all the facts in theo ase.
After reviewing the contents of Mr Hudson's
note, the Brazilian Minister, De Sou/1, denies
thht the hark Santa Cruz was employed in the
slave trade uiion the occasion of her seizure, and
he believes that Mr Hudson cannot bring forward
any proof to the contrary, inasmuch as by a notice
given bv the commander of the cutter Nacega,
dated (itn of January last, to the revenue officer, it
ap|iears that this cutter searched the bark Santa
Cruz, anchored at Bella Villa, and cleared upon a
voyage for this port, and found nothing authorizing
her seizure.
lie further adds that the fact of the bark Santa
Cruz being employed in the slave trade would have
i<" tM aring u)K>n the i|uestion of right, brought into
consideration by the undersigned, because, for
reasons given in the protest of the iui|>eml government,
of date October 22, lftlS, against the act of
August N, of the same year, reasons recapitulated
and developed in many other documents and discussions,
the government of 11. B M. has no right,
in any case, to search and detain Brazilian vessels,
inasmuch as this right was never conceded to it by
Brazil, a free, sovereign, and inde|>endent nation.
For this reason the imperial government, considering
the searching and detention of Brazilian
ve ssels by English cruisers as acts of mere violence,
which it does not repel because it ha* not
tlit- force to reoel them, haa nroteatrd. ami will
protest, against each of these acts of violence
which may be repeated; while it never can admit,
as a reason, the first of the grounds brought fsrwurd
by Mr. lludaon, viz., that the vesael was engaged
iu the slave trade.
The convention of November 23, 1S2H, (the onljr
law actually existing between Great Britain and
Brtizil, with regard to the slave trade,) determines
that it shall not be lawful for the subject* of the
Brazilian empire to carry on the slave trade on the
coast of Africa, under any pretext whatever. From
this general projiosition, the British government
kit to infer the right of searching and seizing
Brazilian vessels, as when it think* fit, in caaca
and circumstancas depending merely ujion its own
arbitration ; of having them tried by purely British
tribunals ; of making search and seizing in the territorial
?eaa of the empire, in view of us forta, and
within its own ports; of entrusting the decision
upon seizures, not to courts, but to the commanders
of cniizers, giving them authority to burn them,
A-c. Finally, it deducea from this general projwMtion
all the consequences which the moat ferule
imagination can conceivc. And this against its
own declaration, becauae in Art. 2 and .1 ot that
cobvention. Great Brituin acknowledged that ?t?pulatious
were indispenaable for the regulation of
those point.", which she could not alone regulate
without the consent of Brazil, and which would
long ago have benn regulated if the propositions
ana demands of the Bntish government had been
more just, anil had ollered any aecurity for lawful
commerce. This i* proved by the instructions
then selvea, ismed in IH44, for the guidance of
naval officers of II. B. M. employed in t ie suppression
of the slave trade. They declare, " no vessel
ci:n be seized under the following circumstances:
?Though fraudulently assuming a flag, and
ga i;? il in the slave trade, if she belongs to a country
with whuh Great Britain has not entered into
a treaty, granting right of search and capturc for
the suppression of the slave trade.''
Now this treaty, granting the right of aeirch
ami capture, does uot actually exist, as the addi
uonai convention ?l 1817 his expired, a taci ?>l
which thf government of 11. 15. M. h is never exprctsed
n doubt. Mr. Hudson declares, in bis
note, that the captor of the Santa Cruz in ? comI
' (< nt judge ol the piratical clutKifr of any
vw-tfl, and is authorized and instructed, by an act
of the British Legialature, to proceed with olive
accordingly us he may judge belt, with a
view of ensuring the extinction of the slave trade.
It ia exactly agmnst this doctrine, and the ft.ta
ari?ing from it, that the undersigned protected,
ai 1 does protest, because it is an uni'iaMi ible
attack u|>on all principles of uitarnttional law. an<l
a nidnife.-t violation of the very act of I'arlitment
i upcn which Mr Hudson rots his argument. In
, order thut Brazilian ves*e|.?, aeizi d by crsi/.*rs f ?r

by mixed commissions, in which, beside lira/than
judges, thare i hould sit Kngliah fudges, the exiw
1 tence of the additional convention of July ?<, MI7,
* as rcuUMte This convention hus expired.
The nrn*ilian Minister then uses a little plain
logic, and says Mr Hudson alleges aa a reason
foi the burning of the Sant i Cnu, herunseaworthw
ncss. liut il the Santa I'rui was imscaworthy,
bow ran it be maintained that she wis engaged m
the Slave trade, Winch requires long voyages 1 If
she was unieaworthy, she could not be employed
ill the slave trade, if engaged in the trade, *h?
could not be unseaworthy. Mr. Hudson all'-ges
bo'h Tiisons, but one neutralizes the other.
The cotrcspondence, after aome other points are
crilargi d UjK>u, lurna on the aei/ure and detention
of the llra/iltan steamer I'aqurte I>e Santos, by the
atesini r Kifleman, of 11. B M service.

The public pipers state, that, aftei a ri<id search,
not the slightest indication was found that the

; that the cargo on hoard waa of a local nature,
and composed exclusively of articles which are
