IdtiUIIob* »o the ft»y ht.xtue Inauguration.
fn justice to the Ladies, and to those gentlemen offi
cialiy connected with the recent inauguration of the Clay
Statue, we deem it proper, for the information ot our
readers, to make a brief statement in reference to the
prmo}>le uponXbich invitation* were extended to the
guests of the occasion. We do this for the reason that
inquiries hare been made by some, why Democrats wen
invited, and by some others, why Republicans were invi
ted, when the national character of Henry tlay woU’i
ol itself seem to suggest a sufficient and satisfactory ex
pianation of toe course adopted by the Committee ot ln
vitatatioa.
With a view then, to prevent the occasion of tbeinau
tiou from assuming either a party or sectional complex
ion, it was decided, in the fiist place, to extend an invi
tation to ail the ex-I’residenta ot the l uited State
w ich was accordingly done, except iu the case of Mi.
P erce, who was out of the country, and who, ot course
could not be seasonably reached by letter It was det r

SpetktTof the House of Representouw. wnicn wu>.

iuvite the Virginia and Kentuckydelegations in
V.otu Houses of Congress. the representatives ©(
the native and the adoptedj State ol the illus
trious miu. whose Statue was to be inaugurated. It wa.
<n-elded, in the loutth place, to invite the Governors o'
a tue States and accordingly invitations were senttoal
; them, except those of California and Oregon, whom
it was impossible to reach by letter 9 time. Aud, in th*
last place, it was decided to extend invitations to a few
<! i - tin gui shed gentlemen in all the States, and particular
It t» such as had been friends and admirers ot Mr. Clay
daring his hie time, and without .special reference totbeii
pre-seut party relations. The discharge of this Utter duty
was attended with conaiilerabledifficulty, iu consequence
of the tact that, in many of the States, the Committee s
knowledge was at fault iu regard to their distinguished
men; and even wheu it was not, they were necessarily
ignorant ot their address and, consequently, could uot
invite them. Tbt Committee aimed, nevertheless, to in
vite at least one or more gentleman trorn each of the
States, extending invitation.-, in the hist place, to geutl<
men known to have been friends and supporters ot Mr.
Clay iu his 111 -time; and then to .-mh others as seemed
appropriate, in order, as we have said, to prevent even
the appearance of being controlled by either party or
sectional spirit iu preparing to do honor to the memo
r. of a man who, whenever occasion required, soared
tar above parte and above sectionalism iu the purity and
compretiensivere-s ot hi* noble and sublime patriotism.
Iu a word, the otject of those officially connected wi;b
the ceremonies of inauguration was not to dwarf the
luv.i or the occasion by recognizing cither party or sec
tional feeling— believing that, on such a day at least, all
pvriv and -ectional feeling should be laid aside and for
gotten. and that men, without distinction ot party.or sec
ton, should as-emble together to do honor to the memo
ry ot a man where fame i- the common property of the
wnole nation—of all parties and of alt sections.
S ich “us the punc pie U| ou which the Committee act
c.l - uch the feelings and motives which actuated them
i, the invitations exicuJed to guest*, aud in ail the pre
,, rations which were made tor the inauguration ccren.o
1,1 s. And we believe this course will be cordially en
rsc 1 aud approved by the un-elfish friends aud adm.
i.r»of llecrv Clay throughout Virginia, and throughout
tin. nation, and eudorsed aud approved, also, by liberal
minded and generous hearted men of all parties and all
sections. Had they pursued a different course, and re
- ii ted their invitation* only to h g*, Icaviug out both
1 no*-rats aud Republicans, they would, as we have -aid,
I v, i;.finitely dwarfed the occasion, and made itunwor
1>|V of the national chanctrr and fame of the immortal
state-.11 an and patriot, whom all men, of all parties and
, . ion-, now that lie is dead, delight to honor.
We have made the foregoing statement aud exptana
t.«n, because, haviug invited many Democrats aud some
II ick Republican*, we cboo-e to satisfy the curiosity ot

^Thi* is the Board of Director*, ai appointed by Ibe
Ladle* themselves in 1844—but the name of Bott* is 00*
found among its member*. In a word, his name doe*
not appear in any of the proceeding* connected with '.he
Statue, Irom 1811 down to the present hour! And a* he
Luit s for reaious satisfactory to themselves no doubt,
did'nt choose to “connect him officially with the titaimt
In 1R44. no thee did’nt gire hint any “oflfi tal part to
plav in the ceremonies” of last Thursday. It was exclusive- j
ly their owu affur, and they had the sole right to officially
connect with it whomsoever they pleased. It appears
chat it was Bott's peculiar misfortune to have l>een stg- •
mb antly overlooked bv those who bad absolute authori
tv in the premises. Instead, therefore, of intimatiug to
the people of Alexandria that he was excluded from any
“official pirt in the ceremonies” ot last Thursday, by a
‘ select committee” or by the Directory, he should have j
told the truth, and iuformed them that he was excluded j
from any official connection with the Statue sixteen yea s I
ago, Ay tkt l idie*, and had not been requested by them ,
to sustain any “official” relation to it, since that time.
Neither the Directory nor Committee, “select or other- i
wise, had any agency in excluding Rotts from any “offi
cial part in the4ceremonies”'of last Thursday, as he bim
sdf very well knew—when he peuued his miserable, whi
ning letter to Alexandra.
But, he complains further that be was “not even iovi- |
ted by the select Committee to be present, to take a scat
on the platform.” Nor, we reply, was any other rifuw
of Richmond, so far as our knowledge extends. The j
platform wa* reserved for the Ladv officers of the Statue
Association, for the Orator, for the Clergy, for the Board
of Dir,jetory, for Invited Guest, for Members of the Press,
for the Baud ol Music, for the Marshals, and all others I
officially connected with the celebratiou of the day.—
There is no reason why any one private citizen of Rich- |
uoiid should have been invited to a seat on the platform,
and all others excluded. Why Botts should be singled out
tor special and distinguished attention, and other more '
worthy citizens slighted, we, for one, cannot see. No
doubt he finds a sufficient reason why he showed thus be j
signal!v houored above others, in his owu superlative
uid exhaustless vanity, but all other persons, whose I
idgmeut or taste is worth a groat, will concede the fit- ,
ue>s and proprietv of not invitiug Botts to a seat on the
platform, anv more than any other citiz»u of Richmond.
But the wbiuiugs and complainings ol Botts on this sub
set are puerile and disgusting beyond description, and
we tut i from i ieut with a sense ot prolouud relict.
Il is proper to state, iu conclusion, that the Board of
Directors was re-modeiled by the Ladies last Fall,
vacancies caused by death or resignation having then
:>Ccu tilled.
The Pryor and Potter UMUcull).
Wo publish th.s morning the hostile correspondence
etweeu Messrs. Pryor and Potter, of the House of Rep
resentatives, growing out of the ••scene” which occurred
iu that body week before last, during the delivery of
Lovtjov's iufamous harrangue. This publication will set
it rest a great many falsehoods, relative to the affair, that
ave beeu dying about in the North. On this occasion,
- .>u others, the people of the North make a ludicrous
ommeutary upon themselves. They pretend to repudi
ate the practice ol duelling—declare that the moral sen
imcnt of their section is against it, and that any North
, in uiau sacrifices himself who recognizes and adopts
this mode ot adjusting personal quarrels—and, vet, there
are no people ou earth who make such heroes of their
duelling uieu as those of the North. How they idolize
the memory of the gallant and unfortunate Cilley ! What
i hurrah tnev rat-cd over the ridiculous gasconading of
Burlingame! Aid, now, they are throwing up their
caps ami shouting over Potter, xs if he were the victor
of a hundred tights—instead of a man who, when invited
to combat, proposed terms most likely of all others to rc
s ilt in no combat a: all. And this we say without
meaning to impugn his courage—about which wc kuow
nothing.
But, our principal object in referring editorially to the
affair is to correct two of the many mistakes and niis
st-itcmeuts, widen have grown out of it, that have just
tallen under o r eye. Tne first is coutaiuod in an edito
rial in the New fork Herald, and isxs follows:
“Some wars ago two persons who held a much higher
positiou in Viigima society than Mr Pryor can ever hope
lor, namely, Messrs. Ritchie and Pleasants, fought with
now it- knin - an 1 no one -aid it was vuigir. In Missis
- Luui'un i, California, and oilier Stales where the
code is recognized, such encounters are common.”
The terms of combat between Messrs. Plea-ants and
1! nhie (ill ir fight not being technically, and uuder the
code, a duel) permitted them to arm themselves as they
ol cased—with the restriction only that none but side
arms should be used. The weapons actually used were
. i-tols, in addition to which Mr. P. had a sword-eauc,
which he in ids an ineffectual effort to use, and Mr. U.
wore in artillery .-.word, which he drew, but diJ not use.
V tiller party used or wore a bowie knife; nor hxs the
bowie knife ever beeu u-ed iu \ irgiuia, iu a tigbi, by
itg miueiit.
The second mi-statement to which we allude, is
contained iu l m following paragraph from the Washing
ton correspondence of the New York Exprt»*
•‘Pryor's position is still worse, from the lact that in a
duel some years -nice, in which he appeared as second,
t;c appointed lor his principal rifles. pistols and b<>ir,e
Tuih.i in succession, which was accepted, his principal
being killed at the tn-t shot. Tins was, il possible, more
••inhuman aud vulgar" than Mr. Potter’s proposition, and
upon this fact Mr. Hotter inform* me he based Ills
choice.
1 ' l.N <A oUCvl WWi ita iwi'. *«'• * •:v*i wvvv.w-.p, — •
our recollection, never appeared on the field “as a sec*
o:;d,” but once, atii th-n there wxs no fight, the matter
being a , x-ted otherwise. Ou that occasiou the wca|>- !
ous agreed to be used were pistols.
Inviting Odi’i Nell to Oue’a Owu Entertain- |
mrut.
Iu addition towh»t we have stated elsewhere, we may
add that a' first it was not proposed to invite, specially,
a: v of the citizens of Virginia to the late statue inaugura
tion. The statue being the contribution of ladies in every
part of the State, its inauguration was thought to be the
act of the [s-ople of the Slate; aud that none need
be invited as mere spectators or guests,except citizen- of
other States, who were not parties to the testimonial.—
And tins wx- probably the proper view to t ike. Bu‘,it
was ti ally determined, in order to insure the success cf
the celebration to make Richmond, instead of Vir
gr; ix the hostess of the occasion, and to send itivitatjoi s
to prominent gentlemen of the State, outside of Rich
mond, to vi-> the city and witness the spectacle. It was
J, -igti-d that he citizen- ot Richmond -liould receive
and entertain these vi-iters as guests. Of course, note
sident of Richmond was invited to come to Richmond,
n I receive the hospitalities of its citizens—nor do wo
s ipose that the idea ol such an absurd thing entered
lac nrain of any oue except Mr. John Minor Bolts. lie,
an 1 he alone, of the fifty thousand inhabitants of this ti
lt, as we gladly believe, dc-irt d to be a guest where he
s io .id have been a host. It would be but little moro
.. |: it he lere to compi mi ol not being invited to at en
tertainment at his own house, given by himself.

luuucurutiou ( ercinonl. a iu New Orlenu».
From the f nlowi _ extract frmi the Sew Orleans Bui
l ■• o; Friday ixst, it will be s en (hat the Clay Btatue
I lugrratiou in that city, ou the day before, was oue of
the grandest affairs that ever came otf ou this Continent:
‘ Never iu the hi-tury ol New Orloan- hxs been display
, d so gn-at and briliiiut a tiibute to patrioti-u. and
worth a- there at* yesterday, i pan the occasion of the
inaug ration ol the statue of the deceased statesman,
Houri Clay. We believe that ev. rv State in this glorious
I uio:. * i» »|«. 1 y represented ou this occasion, repre
ited voluntarily, and iu letuuony of the well d, libera
taj aud loving esteem iu which wxs held noble ‘Hairy of
the West.’
Tie demonstration yesterday, we^.elieve, was oue of
the grande-t and most imposing that the people cf the
I'u e 1 Mites have ever witnessed. We dare not attempt
to -p«- ik in detail of the turnout. It would take col mins
of ou.- paper to do only simple jx-tiee to the constituent
pa-ts ol the process on. So we must refer to the grand
occasion in words brief but earnest. The d.av wart ob*
ser.ed essentially as a holiday. Flace* of business wore
all ch•-•■dearly in the forenoon, aud the streets were thick
with :lags. When the prooe-mon moved, there was only,
we tu ght say, »u attempt to orgwi iae into marching or
der lb*- u-.u'utTabl* miutary and civic companies that
bad s unified their wish 10 Grand Marshal Walton to
participate in tie cvlebration. The most remarkiible
feature* of the cortege were the Knight Templars, I Ma
I sons i all a.ouuWd ou white horses, aud a beautiful full j
rigged mlnature ship, manned by a goodly number of
gallant tar*. .
An ide* of the procession may be gained from the fact
that at • given point, and without any interruption, the
cortege was one hour anil a quarter in passiug. The
procession was beyond all question the greatest and
grandest th it Now Orleans has ever seen, or will sec un
til such houor is doue to the “ Father of hi* Countrv,
and which, we trust, and have reason to anticipate, will
not be long deferred. Whou the various divisions of the
procession had disposed themselves after the route, the
ceremouy of displaying the statue took place. I poti its
being uncovered, the cheer from the multitude was like
the thunder of the ocean; aud at the same time the
throats of the loud voiced cannons were let loose, and
announced iu stirring tone*—taken up by the bells of
the citv—that the bronxe memento of one of the great
men dead was shown to the multitude for their admira
tion and reverence lor all time.
It was indeed a grand and glorious moment, that, when
the imperishable lineaments ot great “Harry of the \\ est
were displayed oefore the assembled people. The un
covering of the statue was followed by appropriate cere
monies, the chief feature of which was the oration of our
eloquent and gifted lricud. Win. II. Hunt. It was re
plete with the spirit and the thought-utterances befitting
the solemnity and the grauduess of the occasion.
THE JAPANESE WAR STEAMER AT SAN FRANCISCO*
INTERESTING DETAIL OF THE VOYAGE—AP
PEARANCE OF THE SHIP-MANNERS AND CUS
TOMS OF THE SEAMEN—RECEPTION OF THE
VISITERS BY THE ADMIRAL, Ac.
On the 17th ult., the Japanese steam corvette Candin
marruh, Capt. Kat-siu-tar-roh, arrived at San Francisco,
27 days from I'ragana, which she left ou the 10th Feb
ruary.’ She is a ten-gun vessel, measuring 300 tons, built
iu Holland about three years ago, aud sent as a present
to the Emperor of Japan by the Dutch King.
The following are the names of the officers of the ship;
Admiral, Ke-uian-ra-to-no-ka-me; Captain Kat-sin-tar
roh; Captain attending, Maugero; Lieutenants, So-ko
rah-to-to-sah, Okeomo, Yu-ba, Use-e-ro, To-mo n-go-ro,
Eu-ah-ket-che ; Chief Engineer, Ua-ma-ge-ro ; Secoud
Engineer, Kin ge-ro; four midshipmen, three doctors,
aud seventy seamen before the mast.
The Caudiumarruh brings as passengers Lieut. John
if. Brooke, U. S. X., Mr. E. M. Kern, U. S. N., and nine
of the crew of the late United Stales schooner J. Fen
uiiuore Cooper, which was wrecked at Yokahnma ou the
23d of August 185'.'. The vessel was under the.ebarge
of Capt. Brooke.
theJpassaoe OVER.
The passage over is thus described by the Alia Cali
We visited the ship yesterday, on her arrival, and were
there introduced to Uapt Brooke and Mr. Kern, from
whom we obtained many interesting details of the pas
sage. This is one of several steamers composing the Ja
panese navy. She is the tirst one that has left the coun
try tor a foreign port, and perhaps would not have been
allowed to come, except that the two above-mentioned
officers happened to be iu Yukahania to nttend them.—
Tne express object is to await the arrival here ot' tiie
Powhatan, when she will at once return to report the safe
arrival of the ambassadors and suite. The Japanese sail
ors are an/nit in all the itsunl work pertaining to the du
ties of seataring life. The boatswain is as thoroughly up
iu his work a* any man coqhl bo in any service. There
is no kiud of tailor-work that he does not thoroughly un
dent: aud, aud can also manage his men iu a ship-shape
manner.
The crew run aloft, and make and take in sail with the
utmost alacrity. There was uo punishment ot any kind
inflicted on the erew—everything going pleasantly and
, a-ily from the tirst. Tiie government on board is mild
aud humane. Tiie science of navigation is thoroughly
understood among the officers, who learned it from the
Dutch at the school of Nagasaki. The instruments are of
Dutch and English manufacture. They had two chro
nometers of English make. The ship is worked iu ail
respects like those of the Dutch. The food on board is
principally lice, dried fish, and pickled'vegetables. The
fish are fiied iu rape seed oil, making a very palatable
mess, aud one which no huugry man would refuse. Each
of the crew is allowed a gallon of rice per day, of whicii
the greater portion is retaiuedjn Japan for their families, j
Vegetables, tea, sugar, Ac., it used, they pay for them- :
selves.
At first, on the passage, the hours were not marked of!
into watches, as in other sea-going ships,} but soon the
necessity of this was made apparent, and the system was
adopted. The tables are used to eat from fore and alt—
chop-sticks being used, as4wi:ii the Chinese. No religious
ceremonies were observed on board during the passage,
uor were there any evidences of idolatry. They were
heard, however, to pray to their deities occasionally in
their own rooms. They looked forwerd with pleasure,
during the passage, to their arrival hero, exhibiting the
greatest curiosity to know about America, its people, aud |
institutions. Tiie government was particularly a subject
of inquiry. They were clcauly in their habits, and bathed
frequently.
The Admiral had four servants, who were constantly
in waiting; but the Admiral being a very sensible man,
exacted no unnecessary servitude or formalities. In a
"ale of wind, the orders were given entirely iu Dutch,
and were executed with celerity and cheerfulness. Tiie
whole nautical education ot the people, in fact, is based
upon tiie Dutch language—thus illustiating the policy
of that nation to preserve its exclusive hold in Japan,
and to found every useful art which they iutruduce
upon their language.
SCXXLSO.N BOARDTUK CA.N-Dtfl-VARRCH.
A number of attaches of the Alta proceeded yester
day, on board the steamer soon alter she anchored.—
We were received at tiie gangway by a marine wearing
the uniform ot the Japanese navy,viz: dark,worsted ma
terial, consisting o( bock aud trowsers, with soft wooden
sandals, (not clumsy wooden shoes, like those of the
Chinese.) Stepping upon the spar deck we were at once
-truck witli the neatness and order which every
where reigned, tiroups of cleanly clad aud really sca
niau'ike looking men were standing about lost or won
derstricken, at our appearance, as we were with the rs.
The marines have a large square patch between their
shoulders, up >n w hich their peculiar rank is written in
Japanese ehaiacters. The^counteuanccs of the.-e people
wenr a far more intelligent look than the Chinese that
we have seen.
We were received courteously and conducted about the
ship. The riggiug, engine aud other matters do not dif
fer from those on any Dutch propeller of her ,-ize, which
is about three hundred tons. She has not a deep draught
of water, but great beam. The guns are rather clumsy,
aud uuwi-Idy, and the muskets, which are kept with the
most scrupulous brightness, are ot the same old-fasbiou
cd, uugainly appearance. De-cendiug into the cabiu,
Wt* IUUI1U IIIC Millie: uvauaso “v*• - _— — 7
scrupulously scrubbed—the mohogany polished. This
I alter) cabiu had heeu appropriated during the passage
to the^Araerioau officers, who have received] every at
tention—a protusiou ol servants to wait on them, aud the
best the ship allbrded.
In an adjoiuiug cabin we were introduced to Admiral
Co-ser-kenia-sa-uo-si-uni. He is J|a beuign, benevolent
looking man, ahopt forty years ol age, aud evidently in
high lavor at the Imperial Court to be intrusted with so
important a charge as this. When we entered, Jhe was
having his hair ruo.-l artistically dressed with oils aud po
matum bv on* of his servants—the Admiral being seat
ed on the floor and evidently enjoying the luxury ol the
Shampoo. S< on after be appeared on deck, dressed in
an unassuming but gentlemanly costume—his feet en
cased iu snowy white sandals and stockings, a dark
brown or olive frock, contrasting liuei.v with a deep blue
vest, which was laced in front with a heavy silver cord.
At his side buug two swords, resembling yataghans.
The officers on board a Japanese ship, from a lieuten
ant up, are called “two sword officers,” and are entitled
bv rauk to wear two swords. These weapons are keen
ly sharp pointed, aud beautifully polished. The Admiral's
bead 1- partially shaved, and the hair handsomely bound
up behind. Iu au adjoining calntt the] cbiet engineer,
llah-ma-ga-row, was having his hair oiled aud dressed by
a servant. . .
v\ e noticed in the Admiral’s cabin, a picture of Presi
dent Uuchauan hanging in a conspicuous place. The Ja
|i*iiesc national fl ip is displayed on board ihe ship at the
main and in the bows. This is a white ground work with
a red ball iu the ceutre. At the mizen floats the Admi
ral’s private signal—a diamond-shaped tigurc, with a red
circle, on a white ground. We wore offered lor refresh
ments a very delicate but strongly flavored liquor, sotne
like morisehino. While we were taking^notesgabout
the ship’s decks, the Japanese showed most intense curi
osiiv to see our style ol writing, uud were much gratified
at being allowed to examine the hook. This |curiosity
was manifested as to articles of clothing, watches, pencils,
knives, Ac., and it may be safely presumed that the crew
ca-i,long and wistful eyes ashore at the city, whose strange
sights they were doubtless eager to explore.
The Captaiu, katsiutaro, 1ms been sick nearly the
whole pissage, aud under the care ol the Doctor, who is
u vtrv intelligent man. When a servant entered the
Captain’s cabiu, he made a low obeisance to the uignita
rv. aud the same on leaving. We noticed that while the
sailing master w is convening with the Admiral, or re
ceiving from him some lengthy instructions, the former
bent very low, and kept hiwovo fixed humbly upon the
deck, while the Admiral preserved a peculiarly upright
position, »itb his head well up, as though lie felt the dig
nity of ids cilice. The uauie of one of the midshipmen
is Kun-u-rah-tse-no-kanie. 1 thauk you, iu Japauese, is
"A-rtitig-f -*u.”
Although a number of the Japanese came ashore oil
Saturday from the Cnndiumarruh, the Admiral aud his
superior officers did no?, of course, make their formal vi
sit unlit the proper etiquette of invitation had been goue
through wiih from the authorities whoever they might
be. Of course the Admiral was ignorant^of the precise
nature of our government, and very naturally looked for
ward with anxiety for the appearance of the titled per
sonage*, with due formalities. To this CDd President
Treschenaeher, Assessor Bond and Supervisors Dates,
Teuuent, Young aud Brooks, together with Capt. Brooke,
U. S. A., I who came over in the steamer,) and Mr. Chas.
Wolcott Brooks, procured a number of carriages, which
were kept in waiting, at Vallejo street wharf, while they
proceeded off to the Candinmarruh. They were cour
teously received, aud a curious and interesting interview
took place. Between 12 aud 1 o’clock P. M.,it was pro
posed to start for the shore.
Tit* admiral’s visit to the < itv.
The Japanese are great sticklers for etiquette, nnd the
Admiral and Mr. Tescheuiacher w ere more than half au
hour arranging as to the order and style iu which they
should leave the ship. There were two boat*—that be
longing to toe ship (the launch) and that in which the
visiters bad ar ived. The Admiral finally agreed to go
with the president of the board in one boat, but declined
to have ” his men ” go with them. Capt Brooke ex
plained to him that these wen were of equal rank with
Mr. Tescheuiacher, when the Admiral consented, and,
alter some further preliminaries, the party, consisting
of the above-named visiters, the Admiral and seven of
his principal c fficers, and three servants, slarted iu two
beats lor the shore. They lauded at Vallejo street wharf,
and, entering the carriages iu the order of thrir rank,
were taken tv the International Hotel—the riyh dresses
ol the party and their cuilous appearance attracting
crowds of spectators.
PROCEEDINGS AT IHE EOTKL INTERNATIONAL.
At the hotel they were e*' ered uo to the large parlor,
where they tuted them'e v*-, the Admiral by h * elf od
a aofi, aud *ooa afterward* Governor Downey, who wai
fortunately in town, arrived to be introduced to the
strangers. The Japanese had evidently pictured to them
selves it very grand and august personage for the Gov
ernor of California, surrounded by officialaand liveried
servants. They were very much surprised at seeing an
unassuming gcullcnian, without uniform or attendant*,
enter and advance to meet them. It was necessary for
Capt. Brooke to explain to them repeatedly that this was
the red Governor before they could believe it. They
surveyed him from head to foot, and looked at the door
ugain xnd again to sec the retinue of attendant* who
they nought ought to be following him. Finally, they
got over thl«, and the Admiral and Governor, through
the Japanese Captain, Mangaroo, who speak* Eugliab,
held conversation in relation to the interesting nature of
the occasion.
One of the first things that the Admiral referred to was
the condition of his steamer, and, supposing that the
Governor had only to say the word to throw open every
avenut of industry, desired to have the vessel put into
the dry dock at once and repaired—adding that he had
plenty of money to pay lor it. The Governor informed
him th it he would have the matter attended to at once,
and wtnld write to the high official at the dry dock, who
was of equal rank with him, aud who would have the ship
properly attended to. He also explained, as well as pos
sible in so short a conversation, the nature of our Federal
and State systems and the political union blended, of
the distinct sovereignties of the Stales. He also alluded
to the iiteresting fact of the officials of the two extreme
coasts cf the Pacific meeting iu fraternal harmony, aud
trusted that iu thus welcoming him to these shores, it was
but the prelude to a large andj extcnded^conunerce be
tween the two nations. lie also welcomed him as the
pioneer Japanese official who had crossed the Pacific to
America. The Admiral responded kindly, after which
champagne and other refreshments were brought in.
The J ipanese were not gaudily, but,very richly, dress
ed, aud altogether looked as intelligent a body of men
as could be imagined. They are evidently a little sur
prised at the lack of ostentatiou iu their reception, but
will soon get used to our democratic institutions. After
this, they were taken by the same company, injearriages,
through he principal streets, to steamboat Point, where
they alig ited and examined the steamer Chrysopolis, now
being bu.lt, expressing the highest satisfaction at what
they saw, and examining minutely every portion of her
constiuction. Thence they walked up to the top of Ri
ne> n Hill, and enjoyed the view from tiiat place. Thence
they retimed to the carriages, aud rode back to the hotel.
At bo If-p >at six, dinners were served in the best-style
of the ho el; after which they walked to Vallejo street
whai f, accompanied by their servauts and a number of
marines, 1>» ariug huge lauterns with curious devices, and
embarked about 9 o'clock, (.'apt. Brooke, Mr. Brooks
and Supervisor Oates attended them to the ship, and re
turned after partaking of a light refreshment. The Ad
miral (Ke- nian-rn-to-uo-ka-me) was received on board by
a file of marines presenting arms and the customary
d rstood (bat national salutes will be exchanged between
the fort and tire Cainlinin.irriih lo-tlay at noon.

FROM WASHINGTON.
Washington, April lti.—It U reported that General
Cushing will not attend the Charleston Convention.
I hear that Senator Wigfall has written a letter to
Lord Lyons expressing regret for using his name in de
bate during the presence of that gentleman in the Sen
ate Chamber. He attributes the inconsiderate remark
to the plain offhand style that prevails in the South
west. Lord Lyons returned a very handsome and
friendly note in reply.
Senator Brown's effort to get a rote on the slave coda

under the energetic efforts of Senator liigler to get at
the consideration of this really important measure of
practical legislation.
It is uow thought that an appropriation will be ob
tained for finishing the Potomac aqueduct.

Intkrkstiso from Mexico.—The Vera Crux corres
pondent of the New Orleans Picayune writes that Mr.
McLanc, our minister, received a cordial reception on
his return to that city, and that the other foreign minis
ters intend to invite him to join them in an effort to
bring about peace between the two factions in Mexico.
The same writer says :
A false report reached the city of Mexico that Vera
Cruz had fallen, and that all the American vessels in the
harbor were sunk. The ministers were so elated at the
news that they went in a body to pay their respects and
congratulations to Lady Mirnmon, and immediately set
themselves about to prepare the firing of a grand solute,
the ringing of bells, Ac., aud also to make preliminary
arrangements to erect triumphal arches, while the ladies
in the meantime were to make a crown to grace the
youthful conqueror’s brow on his return from the fall of
heroic Vera Cruz This terrible cheat was played upon
their credulity by the famous Carvajal, who went to the
telegraph office of San Martin, and with pistol in hand
forced the poor trembling operator to send the above
intelligence.
A Cli:k to Titr IIkayt Bank Rorbkrt at Colcmhcs.—
Tits* >UvAlin>ik nf Vri/1-AC innpninrr loot chitnu thaf
the President of the Marine Bank agency, which was re
cently broken open and robbed at Columbus, Georgia,
has received despatches stating that $30,000 had been
recovered, and a subsequent despatch staling that $l8,(<Ot>
additional bad been recovered, and that a suspected
party bad been arrested. We heard the name, but
prefer not to give it until are get our information more
directly.
The Charleston Kteninij AV..-t gives the following ad
ditional particulars :—A row aril of $7,500 was immediate
ly offered, although suspicion was had of the clerk or
cashier left iu the hank on the evening previous. His
demeanor was observed, and signs of intense nervous ex
citement discovered. Information was communicated that
he had been observed digging iu his garden on the day
succeeding the robbery, and that bo had taken a walk
beyond a road bridge and back, after which he paced his
piazza for two hours.
A negro huckster, coming to town the next morning,
found under this bridge a package of the lost money,
amounting to $30,800, which he surrendered to the bank
and was fully identified from the wrappers. Subsequently,
on other information, the City Marshal visited a place,
where, thrusting his arm into a hole for its full leugth,
he drew out $P2,000 of the same money. The balance,
$3,000, is suposed to be a deficit existing at the time of
the robbery, and to have been lost at the gamiug table.
The suspected party has been arrested and finds himself
bound over for trial, in an almost penuiless condition.
Thk Arrant or Honor.—As a matter of information
it may be proper to say that it is understood that the ad
visers of Mr. Potter iu his affair with Mr. Pryor were
Col. K. W. Lander, consulting; Col. E. E. Beale, of Va.;
Col. M. M. Long, of Va.; llaj. E. L. Vales, of S. C. The
names of the gentlemen acting for Mr. Pryor have alrea

It is stated that the Hon. Win. Preston, Embassador

It appeart from a supplemental statement, by the Auditor, that
$73,050, of city booda were redeemed last flaeal year, $19,388 la
sued, thereby reducing the funded debt #f the city on let March,
'80, to $1,119,699 T9. A temporary debt of $99,$4338 waa incut r
ed, by loan from the Farraeri Bank, and the receipt* from " Bills
Receivable" were $11,956 19. The amouot of Interest on city debt,
paid laat year, was $115^90. The amount of dividend recMved
from th* Central Railroad Company, waa $13,500, and from the

The dlsburiementa on account of th* Water Works laat year, ex
ceeded the receipt*, for the first Urn* In eeverai years. The latter
were about the mual average, while the former went $6 or 7,OKI
above tbe average. Th* demand for water, nnder th* redared
rates, has caused a general extension of pipes, and the city now
funilahe* the aervlcw pipe to the line of the propcity entered—
hence tbe Increased expenditure,

account, If so, the expenditures last yesr exceeded the receipts,
$1,774 But, this fact, should not Weigh a feather against the pro
posed reduction of the price of gas, as the ffgores show a surplus
of receipts to the amount of $30,000, during the two preceding
years, all of which came out of the pocket* of the consumers Of
are likely to be for several years ' We do not know why the “cor
rent expenses” should have "jumped"from $51,OoO to $75,0 0, but
we do know that a large portion of the "construction expense* '
last year, were paid for deodorising apparatus, etc. The receipts,
