As the above Uocumont sets forth no plainly the actual
situation of New GraaaOa, I need not add any remarVs
more than to say that that vagabond bandit Ifelo, and
his gang of rebbtrs, who In ve possessed themselves of
the beautiful city of Bogota, must soon be disponed and
*lere in Venezuela every tkinaf has returned its tran
quillity.' General Garcos, of?Coro, was killed, and General
Hodiiguez also, in Barquiilmeto; therefore, the govern
ment, such as it is, is ttinmphant. Nevertheless, Vene.
zueia is In a most distracted condition ? bankrupt in
its treasury, ?nd, I am sorry to add, in it* morality also.

there exists, in all the Doalnlctn teiritory of over
twenty thousand square miles, fifty white men, e cept

for a long time, that portion of the island called Baa Do
mingo was an integral part of the Haytien government,
of wliiob, according to its constitution, no white- maa
can be a citizen, or own a foot of Tta soil. Is fact, tke
Haytien government has never allowe<l any privilege to
white men, except to remaia during good behavior, an4
to do certain kinds of business by a special license and
the paj went of a heavy tax Indeed, so strictly has tho
Hai tie n government guarded this favorite point, that,
all hough the Ionian Cithoilc religion is that of the Static
snd speculiv protected, and more than ninoty-niue hun
dredths of the people are Roman Catholics, yet If it to
known that a white priest has meddled in any way with
political a IT airs, he is unconditionally ordered to leavw

The fact is, in short, that the government of tte
United (Hates, after having ?to&dlly ret used to acknowl
edge the independence of llaytiand Uberia, simply be

would be intolerable, now proposea to recognize the aa
oalled government of San Domingo, which is nothing
more than a miserable faction of colored men wbo haw
been so thoroughly ridden by Spanish priests, that tt\eg
took offence at the religious toleration allowed by the
Ha? tien government, and so, without the neaessary ra
sources, have set up for them selves. How very strangolr
thlnts are changed by a change of circumitanees. A
appears that the hone of subjugating the ttajti->ns, who
havo never invaded tho territory of any neighboring
State, would tender even colored ambassadors tolerable
at Washington. And so a white colony is soon to to
planted in .-'an Domingo, which, by "nxnilcst c.estiny,"
will be annexed to the United ntstea. ani so the Ha y

Arrival of F. X. Aubrey at Santa Ke.
[From the St. Louis ltepubllcan, Sept. 11 ]
A telegraphic despatch from our correspondent in l?x
lugton, Mo , of yesterday's date, advises us of the death
of X. Aubrey, tlie most dvingond enthusiastic tra
veller of the age. Ibis despatch states, that Inttora hM
been received there by express, addressed to Kusaa^
Wadded & Co., from their agents in New Mcxioo. stating
th'it F.X.Aubrey was stabbol in a row witii Major
Weightman. In Santa le, about the 20th of August. aaA
diod immediately. Aubrey had just made the trip from
San Francuoo to Santa re, for a wager, in twenty-tow
days. .Major WelgUtman w.-u, two years ago, the dele
ave in Connesa from New Mexico, and was an offloer ia
the army during the Mexican war. Nothing la said af
the circumstances which terminated the earthly oa
of the most intrepid traveller that the world haa <
In 1848, Mr. Aubrey waa introduced to onr
as hating performed the most remarkable travelling I
upon record. Before that time be was known to un ae a
merchant of great enterprise, connected with the Saala
Fe trade, goinx to and t'ro with great prom jtoeas aad
success, but it was not until 1^48 that he performed the
journey between Santa l a an>l Independence, which gam
to him bis fame for peneversn ee and personal enduranoa.
On the 1-th of September of that year he left Santa IV
with the intention of making a quick trip to the States
and he certainly accomplished it. He made the enMra
journey, of eight hundred milei, in five days and fifteen
hours. If the travelling timo only be counted, the ex
act'time was fonr days and a half. During this tiaie ha
slept, two hours only, and ate six meals He broke dowm
six horses, walked twenty niles on foot, and had te
swim creeks and endure the rain for twenty four bounty
und travel neaa'y six hundred miles of the distance te
the mud.
By the aid of a steamboat, which b* found at hidepeB
dence landing, he mode the whole distance from Santa
Fa to St. Lonia in a little over ten d?/n ? 1,200 mil? ?
No one accompanied him over the prairies, and a por
tion of* the land trip waa at tho rato of one hundred and.
ninety miles to the twenty-four hours. Tbis joume*
earned for Mr. Aubrey the toubriqiut of the "Skimmer u
tho Plains," and he ban Worn it ever since; and the paa
hIoii seems to have been innate, for we find it announce*
by the telegraph, that he had undertaken, for a t
to make the di.-'ance between -an Francisco and
Fe In twentv-tao days. Suppoafng him to have per
formed it, tnen, taking hit tiip in iS43 from Santa Fa,
ho may be said to have travelled from Han Kranciace to
St. Iioula ia thirty two iLivs.
For a scries of years, Mr. Aubrey was engaged In ex
tensive mercantile traasacUoss between Missouri anA
Now Mealeo? sometime exton<l!ng his trade to Chihua
hua ? and again returning to Mis'ouri by the Soother*
route, through L-xas ami .New Orleans. Ills outfit* of
goods were almorit always obtaisusl here, and he was ge
ner illy suceisful in disposing of them.
To a man of bo much enterprise, to conceive of aa e*
r, edition from New Mexico to California, was to exeonta
it. He according iy, in 1862, we think, resolved upon an
expedition to that State, and took with him aevernl
thousand head of sheep By hie good management ha
lost very few. If any, of them, and his enterprise waa
said, at the time, to hare r waided him with a proAt of
$70,000. Mr. ^ukreyM spirit of adventure, while It M
liim to shape journeys for his per?onal benefit, alwaja
bad something of public interest connected with I*.
Tho*, on one of bis expeditions between Indeoeadaaea
snd .>~anta Fe. he departed from tbe road usually travel
ed in search of a better one, and so nice waa hia dte
cr twins' Ion and cbservatlon in this respect, that It waa
afterwards passed over by a topographiesl eogineer,
pronounced to be decidedly the best route bet
'he two co Jits. And so, when returning from California
to New Mexico, he determined upon the strength of hia
own Judgment, to toke a new route, and ascertain, If
possible, the practicability of a route for a railroad te
the B;o i.ran 'e. Fitting out ^n expedition at his own ?*
pec tie he conducted it from California to Albuquerque, 4?
termiBginhisown mind the entire practicability of tha
route to that point nis journal, which we published
at the time, was foil of interest and adventure* Of hard
fights with the Indians, and Imminent perils and soJfer
iug< during hia pa??nge through a conntry then aad no*
eo little known, he furnished maay thrllllog sketohee.
laet year, Mr. Aubrey again went to California, froafc
r New Mexico, on a bwbosa adventure; and, having ao
I compll/hed hia object, he started on his return to Sent*
Fe. ' Bis company consisted of t iloren or ronre ^
?cost of them native* of New Mexico, but we du not re
collect any special reference fa the California paper*, to
the tln-e in which he wr> ; to prrform the jouraey. nv*
wsger wrw probably ti. :? aiterw.-ir-i . If exeenced ?
within tbe timo, it goes far to prcio that a railroad toyf
t'allfo- nia can M built on tho route wlilch he travelled.
