ClXTiUI. AMERICAN AFFAIRS-TBS CAPTURE OF
Mr. Cling man, from tbe same committee,
then made a report in regard to oar relations
with Central Amerlea, concluding with tbe fal
lowing resolutions :
JU$o'.vrd, Tbat inasiMich'asIthe United States
can never consent that any foreign power have
tbe right to enter our territory with a view of
forcibly carrying away any person who may
be therein, bo it becomes the duty of Its gov
ernment to disavow and disclaim all right on
its part to enter for tbe same purpose the terri
tory of any foreign power, os. State, with
wbieb we are en terms of amity or friendship.
ibastred, Tbat officers of tbe United States
have no right to age tbe force under tbeir com
mand in the territory of any foreign State at
the instance of or for tbe benefit et such State,
aotees previously atttborizetTby Congress.
Rttetvtd, Tnat Inasmuch at tbe views of tbe
President, as made known in bis message to
tbe two Houses of Congress, are H accordance
wiUt Uiese principles, bo action is necessary
on tbe part of Congress.
Mr. Ritchie, of Pennsjlvania, offered tbe
following resolution as a substitute:

Walker and bis associates, wUii tbe territory

Mr. Babksdale, of Mississippi, sabsattted
tbe following resslationi
Rnrtvti, Tbat tbe conduct of Commodore
Pauldlne: and bis mB, in arrestkr General
William Walker, was wHhoat authority of

Mr. Weight, of Georgia, also offered a res
oiuUoo, coadeauiing tbe conduct of Commodore
Paalding as witbeat authority of law, and as
serting tbe right of an American citizsn to ex
patriate himself with anas in his bands for tbe
purpose of settling new Territories.
Mr. Clinomak made some exptanatiocs in
connection with tbe report. He held that tbe
arrest of General Walker by Commodore
PauMtog was Without authority of law. He
contended tbat an officer in command of tbe
forces of the United States could only use tbat
force ia tbe service of tbe United States, and,
te ebow what tbe last House of Representa
tives thought upon tbe subject, he begged leave
to present tbe vote apon a resolution of bis
own. He said, in explanation of tbe circum
stances under wbich be offered that resolution,
he called apon the Secretary of State, (Mr.
Marcy,) and advised tbat a body of troops
should be sent to protect the Panama railroad.
Mr.Alarcy replied that the Eaeeutivetcoald
not use troops of tbe United States withia for
eign jurisdiction without authority. He was
willing to do anything be could from tbe coast,
but could not land troops there. Mr. Clingrain
said be bad impressed apon the Secretary tbe
importance of sending troops tbere and taking
possession of that isthmus, and tbat was bis
line of policy. In reply to a remark of theJ
Secretary as to what lie thought of their for
eign policy, ce (Mr. U.) said Loat tie taougot
tbat bis foreign pelicv bad been given to Quar
relling wi'h everybody and obtaining nothing.
.Sat it was sufficient for Dim that both Presi
dent Pierce and tbe Ss:retary thought tbey
could not use troops without authority. He
therefore presented tbe following resolution :
Raoitti, Tbat for the better protection of
American citizens, tbe President of Ibe United
States be. and be is hereby authorized to em
ploy any part of the land and naval force of
toe country, and to call for any number of vol-
onteers necessary to provide, far the safety of
passengers and citizens m mat krnny, and
such force to aid the focal authorities to tasare
such rights as the government and citizens of
the Untied Mates are entitled to enjoy.
Mr. uingman said teat JUr. Jones, or Ten
nessee, objected, and be moved to suspend tbe
rules : apon wbich motion tbe vote stood. jeaB
S3, nay's 74 a large majority being unwilling
to permit toe introduction or a resolution to
authorize tbe President to use troops for the
protection of American citizens, for fear the
President would take possession of that gov
ernment. If gentlemen woald cot trust the
President, be dW not think tbey would trust bis
subordinates. If that resolution had been
adopted, and carried out, tbe President might
have seized tbe Isthmus, wbieb would have
beaa of -vast advantage to tbe United States.
and be saw from the papers tbat that Territo
ry was now asking to be annexed for nothleg
Anetber purpose be had very ranch at heart
wae the opening of tbe Niearaguan line.
Walker at that time was in power, and if
tbis line bad been kept open, would bave
been able to sustain himself. Tbe line bad
been closed for two years ; California bad lost
largely, and the Panama Company were psying
$40,000 a month to keep It closed.
Ia a proclamation on tbe 224 of April, 1S58,
Mr. Yrisarri said that if an American eiuzen
went te Nicaragua, and attempted to pasa
threegb, as be had a right to do under tb origi
nal treaty, if be did not come in a certain line,
by tbe Pacific ebip canal, he would be treated
as an enemy and stopped. He held tbe right of
an American citizen te go te tbat Territory in
any ship be pleases, and a monopoly of this
kind could net be tolerated. That was tbe
ship company of New York. Suppose Great
Britain should provide tbat nobody should
travel to tbat country except in tbe Canard
Hne, woald net tbe people of New York, Bos
ton, aad Philadelphia complain of such an
arrangement? He held tbat tbe United States
bad a right to exercise an influence upon Nic
aragam in order to secure a route to oar Pa
cific possessions, aud he trusted tbe treaty
making power weald net allow any regulations
to be made by wbteh an advantage woald be

aided British interests, and not American in
terests, in that territory. It was generally

By aaanimeus consent tbe House then pro

Whereas tbe treaty between tbe United

render of tbe ngbts of tbis country, and upon
tbe American construction an entangling alli

Mr. Clingmah said tbere bad been a strug
gle going on between tbe United States and
Great Britain in relation to Central American
territory. It commenced with the acquisition
ef California. Before tbat Great Britain had
been extending her influence in tbe East with
out interruption from the United States, but as
she saw the advantage tbe United Statea would
bave, the made a proposition to her, which tbe
administration, witfi great imbecility, accep

never executed. There was another provision
by wbich neither Great Britain nor the United
States should ever occupy or exercise any juris
diction ever Central America, or any part of
K, either directly or indirectly, by treaty or
protection. It was a treaty by which neither
government was to take possession of tbat ter
ritory for alt time. Suppose tbe United Stales
should say to Great Britain, we agree not to

weald reply tbat she bad possessions tbere,

the absurdity ef tbat prepetitieo. Great
Britain claimed about fear-fifths of tbe terri

very able argument to mjo-v that Great Britain

air. latngman alluded to the four great powers
Russia, France, Great Britain and tbe United
States that are extending tbeir dominions over
tbe inferior races, contrasting their relative
power and resources briefly but moat forcibly.
He held tbat no power exists tbat bas greater
advantages than the UnlUd States, which had
under it control aome of tbe inferior races of
tbe earth. He then drew a comparison between
Great Britain and the United Slates, to show
the difference In the treatment of these sublets
by these powers. Great Britain had In India
about 170,000,000 of people, and eighteen-twen-tietbs
of tbe gross products of the soil were
taken from the cultivators of it. No man be
lieved that tbe inhabitants of any country
and famine. The population of that country
had diminished thirty millions since Great Bri-
tain had obtained control of It. Now, (said
he,) let ns look for a moment at the manner In
which tbe United States treats the aborigines
of this country. So far from compelling them

tie tnen exposed with great force toe evils cl
of the most oppressive systems the world bad
ever seen carried on by civillxednatloBS. Eve-
rybody knew tbat a man who was only employ-
ed to work for a time would be worse treated
than a slave. The United States; bad now
upon the coast of Africa chips to aid Creat
Britain In suppressing the slave trade, and yet
tbat power was transporting other races in this
way. He held that whilst tbey had tbis en
gagement with Great Britain, the United States
might at least protest against this' iy stem, and
say that she would withdraw her squadron
from Africa if that power did not stop tbis
Gentlemu said suppose this treaty were ab
rogated, ttjwauld lead to a war. He bad ob
served the course of tbe British government,
and she had two systems of operations against
the United States insinuation and bluster.
Tbe allegation was constantly made tbat Con
gress woald not do anything; that Congress
would not back the government. He knew tbe
shortcomings of Congress ; but tbere bad been
few instances where the Executive bad the oc
casion, and made tbe appeal, tbat Congress did
net comply with the demand. During the Mex
ican war tbe government bad everything tbey
asked for. The fault was tbat some Execu
tives bad not shown a purpose t act, and con
sequently Congress was backward In acting.
He hoped there woatiTbe a reform io this re
spect. Tbe present administration bad as yet
no opportunity of displaying its foreign policy.
Tbey bad been occupied with certain domestic
questions; but, from tbe antecedents of tbe
President and the ecretary or Mate, me coun
try had every reason to expect the best results'
irem toeir policy, lie proposed to toe nouse
simply to respond to mete views, ana especial
ly to tbe views of tbe President, and condemn
tbe Clayton- Bulwer treaty, and leave the Pres
ident to take tbe necessary steps to abrogate it.
Great Britain was at present engaged in war in
Chios, and in India, and waa threatened with
difficulties in Europ-. Let the United States
come forward and settle tbeir difficulties; but,
if tbe question was left open to a future time,
his word for it, it would involve a war.
Mr. Giddinsj, of OMo, Inquired whether the
gentleman included Cuba.
Mr. Clinsman replied that tbe Clayton-Bal-wer
treaty did not embrace Caba. lis was In
faver of removing all entangling alliances.
Four years ago they could have taken Cuba
honorably on tbe occasion of the Black War-
nor auair. ne was in uvsr ui mfciuj; iuua,
if tbey could get it in an honorably way ; and
be believed it tbey did obtain it it would put an
end to tbe trade in Chinese and Asiatics
Would 'the gentleman net like to seethe annex
ation of Cuba, by which the 'slave trade and
cooly trade woald be stopped?
Mr. Giddixgs inquired whether the gentle
man would go as far as Mr. Buchanan. X
Mr. Clikgman- replied tbat he would go as
far as Old Bock." All he desired at this
time was to endorse the position of tbe Presi
dent. Mr. Davis, of Maryland, Inquired whether
they could abrogate the Clayton-Bulwer treaty.
Mr. Clinomak replied that the President, in
his message, had said that it could be abroga
ted with the consent of both parties. He hid
every reason to believe that tbe present British
Cabinet were willing that it should be done on
honorable terms, and he bad no doubt tbe Pres
ident weald be able to accomplish tbat object
at tbe present time. Every person mast see
that it was important to act speedily on the.
Mr. Ritchie, of Pennsylvania, moved tbat

The Cbevasses. The New Orleans Pica'
yune, of Sunday last, states tbat the Algiers
crevasse is stopped. It adds :
" For several years past the abrasion on the
Algiers side of the river, In the neighborhood
of this crevasse bas been extremely rapid, and
tbe probabilities are that when the river falls,
there will be extensive cavings it, wbich will
force on the people of the right back tbe ne
cessity of building anew levee, fartherremoved
irom tne river."
On tbe New Orleans tide, toil hat been de
posited, while on the opposte bank it has been

eleven o'clock this morning the inner levee at
McDonoghville, near tbe upper line of Al -
giers,and nearly opposite tbe First District
Ferry, yielded to the pressure of tbe water and
gave way for space of twenty feet. The
river is rushing rapidly through, t' e depth of
water in the breach being from twelve to fif
teen feet. A crowd is assembled and are la
boring to prevent the widening of tbe crevasse,
but with little success, as the depth of the
water enables tbe current to eat away tbe

Abundance or Gold. The banks are puz

bankers nave feared that In case of a demarn

notes might be felt as an embarrassment, bat a
moment's reflection mast satisfy them of the
utter groundlessness of this apprehension. No
demand for gold can affect the bank unless it be
fer export or tbe payment of duties, and, in the
present state of our foreign trace, the money
must be wanted for duties before there can be

Messrs. Editobs: Allow me through your

in my humble judgment, of rare merit and great
value to the community generally, by the Rev,
LeRoy J. Halsey, D. D., entitled " Tie Litera

Word of God Considered at a Classic"
To the numerous friends and admirers of Dr.
Hale- ntbe Sooth, I need say nothing In
con; .ktion of hit book other than to con
gratuiale them upon itt appearance.
I bave read nothing in a long time with more
pleasure. In patriotism it is Intensely Ameri
can, and in its catholic spirit it Is tbe common
property of all Protestant Christians. It is
pre-eminently a book for tbe times, and a val
uable contribution to the literature of the day.
It ia a book for the patriot, tbe scholar and the
Christian. It is not a mere eulogy upon the
Bible, but a learned analysis of Itt character,
exhibiting much investigation and profound
thought, and furnishing facta and argumenU
npon a rich variety of topics alike Interesting
and important to every American citizen. Our
6"' American interest with an eloquence and
ability we have cot tsen equalled.

To tu Edit on of tkt Afptal :
For tbe first time in my life, I am forced to
appear In print. Your correspondent, who
signs himself "A Voter of the Eighth Ward,"
has judged me and tbe meeting over which I
bad the bocor to preside, by bis own corrupt
heart. Tbe first I beard of tbe meeting on
Friday evening for the purpose cf nominating
candidates for Aldermen, was from the Indi
vidual I take to be your correspondent. He
asked me to attend the meeting, and be and I
did not sgree In our choice for Aldermen at
that tlm'ejpl was in favor of the present nom
inees, and he was not. I oaly spoke to two of
tbe voters of tbe Ward after parting with blm,
until the meeting took place. He says tbe
whole thing was fixed up In advance. I say it
Of tbe five gentlemen who were appointed a
committee to nominate Aldermen, I never beard
them speak on tbe subject of the railroad, and
I only heard two of them express a preference
for Aldermen. So much for tbe "faithful
He speaks of the pompous manner in which
tbe meeting was presided over. I admit tbt
as long at there was a professional gentleman
present, be should have been called to tbe chair.
There wat one present tbat was anxious to
make a long-winded speech on the merits tf
tbe Pacific Railroad, and other outside busi
ness. Tbe meeti'ig was of tbe opinion thtt
each belonged to Congress, and I have no doubt
if that august body had beard tbat eloquent
gentleman on that subject, they would at once
change their course, and hasten their action on
tbe matter; but the meeting did not cars to
listen to tucb a subject at tbat time aud place,
hence it has to be denounced.
He says be wants no office. I am truly glad
to hear it. His aspirations were nipped in the
bud. I think be Is the gentleman who wanted
office a few years ago, and waa anxious to get
a certain clergyman to use bis influence with
his congregation in his behalf. This is tbe
pint: ef perfection who charges corruption on

Messrs. Editors, you bare refused to give bis
nsme, bat be is so strongly marked, I could
not miss him. He Is one of those little petty.

Citt Morals. The moral condition of tb
city baa been to good for some weeks, that the
City CoubcII are entertaining the idea that they
may safely dismiss a portion ot the Police
force. Tbis Idea it thoroughly erroneous, the
improvement of morals will not be of long con
tinuation. We speak confidently, because tbe
number of groceries, groggeries, doggeries,
coffee houses and saloocs are increasing so
greatly and sj rapidly, tbat we re ture no
long time will elapse before tbe force will bav
enough on their bands.
A Nabbcw Ef cape. As Ibe
Editor was leaving the wharf on Tuesday even
Ing, a gentleman who was accidentally on board
when tbe boat started, made a leap for tbe is
gomaras the Editor passed by, but missing his
object be fell into the water between tbe two
boats. Tbe engineer cl tbe Editor fortunately
witnessed tbe accident. He at once stopped
tbe wheel aud running to the nheelhouse found
the gentleman nearly at the top of tbe wheel.
With the energy of the death grip" he had
-seized and beld on to it. To tbat grip, and to
tbe prompt action of tbe engineer, he owed tbe
preservation of bia life.
