great | tn w into which thm republic is divided are
called the liberal nod the servile parties. lb* former are
by f?r the strongest in jKjint ol nuiai^erH, aud are sus
tained by the Slates of Salvador nil Honduras, but the
latter are by far the bent educated and the most wealthy.
It unfortunately happen* that .then the liberals ifet into
power they djf.ig.et- amongst themselves, aud come
qnen-Jy are soon ouetid. The ernle party, on the olli<-r
hand, manage tiling* much letter, *o lar as re aiiilng
ctbie get*. There tan be no doubt, however, but tliat
the object of this jmrty it either the establishment of a
monarchy, or & re union with s>pain. In faci, the present
Minister of i oreifn liela'ions, IV>n Manuel F. I'ason, it,
aLtl has been, stri'imng every nervs to aecompMah one of I
the e objects for ytars,;with the hope of dying with the i

to the Uitertst ot th? king ofjthe Belgians, and now sports |
the baubie he recentd in the shape of a ribbcn dangling
at his button hole. 'Uie Jesuits, tt ho were admitted hit*
about eigh'een mouths or two years since, have taken
tide* with tte monaremcai party and the influence they
are al.t ad) exercising is almost unbounded tne majority
of the leading families here are in th?ir interest, and
ihere is no telling where their projects may end In fact,
thin goverimeu' is a republic in name only. Qarrer.t,
tl.e so called President, is a liicator. and in susiamod in
his coins* by the strength of the servile pirty. The
influence of the Jesuits is, however, be{inningto altrin
him, and it is po?sii?le that he may be jet compelled to
tliro* himself into the arms ol Mime other party in o.uci

This government, not sa'islled si'.h gtip>ir*ssing tli
liberty of the p;?is, lias also established a system o
espionage in tie Pest Ottine llepartment. Letters an 1
news pace's oi suspected prrson- are opened, and, it i
pOHsible. destioyed. The only safe plan is to for v.ir :
letters to the ieabtwrd by specutl couriers, and ilius avoid
the rirks of their Mateuta being kuo.vn to the govtrn
nieiit. You o^iy rest assured that letters like th-sp | ,,m
writing would not be permitted to leave the country, if i
i we'e possible to prevent it. lam atvaie that no proofs
of these charges nave ever be*u brought against the gov
einn ent, but ?? is from *.he fact that no one would la-e
attempt it, well knowing wa.it evil consequences would
I follow. A recent ca?e, h iwever, has come to my o*a
knowletige. A larjje bundle ot American newspaper^ fro n
Wa liing'on, it was found, ou b< ing t?ken from the i'o*t

the duties of the corresponding secretary duriag hi* sick
u< ? or absence, and tllieti every position down to that of
Q ?Mate what you know relative to rharge No. 1.
A.?In regard to the elect it u- that t*x;a pUce at
the different cistributions every year, net en men
hers' term of office expired annually, and their vtC
cancies were filled; it was always arranged tenure the
meeting by the committee who were present, who were
to till tee vacancies occasioned by me retirement of the
seven members. At the annual distribution, the Presi
^eBt, or presidios; officer, made an addre .a to the people
present, iuformi'g the audience 'hat the term of service
of those gentlenen hud expired, aod tha t it was neeessa
ry to till the vacancies; and the 1'ie ident would also
intimate to the people that the-<e retiiing officers were
eligible for re election, or that they could Melee I others
fouie person at the lower end of the ball, or in the pit, or
among the audkucc, would move the reelection ot' the
retifing officers. Thai hai beeu the usual course.
The mo ion whs prom; Uy seconded, and the question
immediately put by the cnair; an'l at toe very last le-ral
electi"n, on the Friday before ' hri-toias, it was charg-*!
that ihat course had been pursued, and thu President
immediately put the questiou in this ?tj le? A* uiaay js
are in favor of the motion say aye; contrary, no,'' aui it
was carried with railroad -peed. Before the aves could
possibly be heard, it uas declared carried; by the time
the ayes were heard, the decision w is declared I Jo not
think"there was a "no" heird in the whole assembly;
there was no time for i;. A commnoica'.ion iva- received
by the committee, comjrfa.ning of the very fact stated.
I have seen the communication: it is in the letter book
of Tecember, 1860, or January, 1861; 1 was told uy on-?
of the members of the Committee .if U yuM-s, <>eo. W.
j Austin, the Treasurer ot the Art luion, tl.at n b?ly of
! mi n were to attend the meeting at Metropolitan Hill to
| vote down any opposition to the reeleotion of retiring
members of that ye ir?that was in 1861; ihe election
did not take place in consequence of legil proceedings it
was alter the tegular time for the meeting that Mr Aus
tin told me this; 1 wisu to cotre. I that statement: J wish
tl.e words "legal proceedings'' to be stricken out, aud
the words "pecuniary embarrassment'' inserted: this
* as so .stated bv the committee to eierybodv; 1 do nut
know of any other fact in connee.tion with the tlrsi
charg?: every person in the ball hid a right to vote, no
person was piolitbi'ed from voting. 1 know ?eve.-al per
sons who we.e present who were not subscribers: I have
given several ticktts awa.v to persons ?ho were nit mem
ber* n en, wen en aud cnildien were present; Colonel
Warner has referred members to me to procure tiskets
for their trien'lB ?ho were not members; cojld not par
ticulaiise others than members being present, butii was
aimitteroi public notoriety.
Mr. hi U21TON.?Never mind public nolo iety.
The WiTKBsb?My character is as good as jour's, Mr.
Mr. Fiuehton ?Tell facts with'n your ova knowledge.
Public no'oiiet) has nothing to do with the matter.
Rumination resumed?l'lease fftate the po-ition
the oH.cers held in regard to the audience at the.e
distributions. A.?Th< y were on a platform against
Bleecacr street, at the tack part oi the hall, soui^ of
them wete meuihers. and many of their friends weie
there: Hie elect.on I have referred to took place betoic
the distribution.
The Chairman then directed the nituess to state wha'
te knew in reg'trd to that part of the charge relative 'o
the managers not tendering thtir services gratur.ou-ly,
though they piopo-ed to do so.
The witness continued?I know that the committee
have published t>< the world a sta'eaieut that the affairs
ef the institution were conducted by gentlemen who re
i-eived no remuneration lor th'ir i-ei vices (See Bulletin,
for 1850 pajre 16!i). I know tha'. that stutmeot, thus
published to the world, is untrue, Colonel Warner has re
ceived coiui en-alion. he being a m.-mber the commit
tee; the president, (Mr. Gu/.ens,) h^s also received on
pen sat ion: 1 cannot Fay that any ether person has re
ceived compensation. in June, 1850, 1 th.nW a resolution
vas pa.~?ed Liy the Conmittee of Management, crenting
the office ol actuary, and appropriating a salary of
$2,500 per annuni for that office, commoaoing
from July 1, 1850; Colonel Warner was in recoipt ot'
no stated salart frrm the Art Union prior to that diy, I
can procure the resolution if necessary, or a copy of it;
1 know that Colonel Warner rec-ived the money ; he re
ceived from 1st July up to 1st January following that
rate of compensation; about the close of that year, or
the beginning of the next, a resolution was parsed by the
Committee of Management m about these words:?
" Wheieas r.o provision lias b?en im>de for the payuien'
of Colonel Warner s salary from January to July, 1861,
thoreloic resolved. Hint the rano- rate of compea>at on
which lad been paiil to him shall he piid for the >it
months previous to the creation of the office It 1,300),''
the reason be did nor receive the other Ht'ty miliars i?as
beraute the affairs of the institution were not in a very
prosperous condition. Mr. Owens received compen?iti n
lor pioruriug sub criber-, he leeeived eighteen dollars,
which 1 paid him myself: he procured a list of subscriber,,
tome of whom we e his personal friend', and when he
paid the subscriptions I oaid him eighteen dollars: some
of them were member, of the Century 'Jlu\ o: which Mr
Comns was a member I do not know that Mr. O. piid
'.lie eighteen dollars to auy i iher |?rson; I do not know
what disposition Mr. C. made of tho-e elirhteen dollars; I
do not know whether Mr. C. paid that taffl to any other
jerson for getting thofe sub-cdiers.
Mr. Co//f?s wished to utate, as a matter of ju'tice to
himself, that he bad not re.-eived one cent for his owu
p'r^onal u>.e. h it that the eigh'ecn dollars were given :o
the boy who collected the subscriptions.
lbe evidence was then read eier to the witnes; by tte
<lerk. who, having signe?l it, the committee adjourned
until to laorrow, Tuesday, at 11 o'clock.
