Upon these grounds he ma'-ted that the order of the Cuurl below should be reversed, Willi costs, aud tho motion thereby deuied granted , Mr Warviu, In opposition, contends that without i stipulation only $3 u day could be charged by tho I r-ieree; that the relereo under hi. announcement could get but tue statutory lee; lliut the Court to which be was suojcct would compel him to deliver his re port lor the statute charge, aud that his lion ,u* '?J, upon the report was ouly to tne cxtout ol his statule He when tue parties declino to enter into the bti; u la'un authorized by the old code.

REJOINDER TO A LATE IMPERFECT REPORT I ROM WaSHINOTON?OOHUUC^Ab PROMISE? NO INDISCRIMINATE EMIGRATION DT THE ITtEKDMKN INTENDED OR DESIRED. To the Editor or tss Hiirai.d;? A recent report published by tbe Department of State at Washington as to the condition ot Liberia h .s been mitdo the basis by some of our leading jour nals ot a goueral disparagement ol tbe oondition and lutureof this couutry. In editorials Joco-e .nj eawr leal I ho Colonization Society has been held ttp to rldi cule and the African Republ'o represented km tbe realm of "lever and poverty and Idleness" Exactly what the information Is, how lull end by whom furnished, 9n which thoso editors proceed to make merry over "this would-oo Edon" ol blluded enthusiasts tbe Washington report doas not Mute. Tbe gist of tbe communication given to tho pre?3 is that on the coast the climate is laiaily malarious to foreigners, that horses, mules and donkeys cmuuot endure it, and that buthtilo civilizuliou and very little agricultural enter, prise nrc to bo tound.tu Liberia. Wnethor this Is news furnished to chock tho emigration schomns of the Ircedmcn in tho South or U the report o( some prejudiced observer no do not Icaow; but that III > tu over colored und One-sided report the facts given tno public recently Iroin many sources crtainly indicate. It may be true Unit ou the other hand tho condition and prospects of Liberia have been 100 glowingly pio lured. The truth ol tho caso lies doubtless somewhere between these two extremes. It is nut an exhibit ol 111 tompor and of shori-slghtod wisdom to naricaturi this African State. It nas a peculiar claim upon lbs symputby und usslslanco ol tho Amerioan people, and though lis progress has not been us rapid as mauy hoped ana even predicted, yot Liboriuns havo mani fested thus lara putlonco, un appreciation of liberty, a respect lor order aud lor their new rights and obliga. tlous, which entities them to our highest commenda tion. When we think ol what outer Christian nations huvo done to strengthen and develop their Airicin colonial possessions, and witness the oarnost efforts now botng made to o;>eu a'Negliimnto trade tlirough them with this rich continent, it may well suggest to our statesmen aud merchants tuo policy of en couraging the n^gro Repubilo wo buvo boon Instrumental iu lormiug lu We-torn Alrica.
