An extraordinary spectacle is presented in j
the contacting views manifested in regard to a j
doctrine which has long been regarded as the !
has s of justice and equality among the States.
Can arty one doubt that the samo protection
Should he extended to every species of property
carried into the territories, whether from the
sunny South or the frigid Xorth? As President
Bucnunun well said in his fatuous Sillittian letter
to the fanatical Connecticut clergymen: |
"If a confederation of sovereign States tic- j
quire a new territory at the expense of their j
common blood and treasure, surely one set of
- tii I'VfliT.].-. f},,. I
I ;ic pailllVi^ can H.m. ?..v |
other (Kiin its enjoyment by prohibiting them i
fiosn taking into it whatsoever is recognised to
be property by the common Constitution.''
But, further: The Constitution ha^ rccog- J
nisei slaves to be property, standing on exactly j
trie- same footing as other property, and, there- j
f.cntitk-J to the same protection again?t i
"unfriendly legislation" in the territories which, [
themselves, are in a state of mere pupilage.? !
It it not monstrous that any party should favor
the proposition of ".squatter sovereignty," by '
v. hicii a handful of iloating settlers, while fully '
enjoying their own species oi property, would j
be enabled to degrade the citizens of a 'urge |
portion of the confederacy and rob them of|
property which has been fully recognised by j
the Constitution of the United States?
for sinister purposes, it has been attempted j
to involve this whole question in obscurity, and
the raw-hend-and-bloody-bones of "a slave code"
has been paraded to frighten conservative men
out of ihcir propriety. But the point is not a
lie .v one. I is justice has long been acknow-:
led red, and its reiteration has only been made
necessary by the false coloring that has been :
given to the Cincinnati platform under the glare
of modern new lights. It is due to the rights j
ami equality of the Souther n States, and to {
tue honest name and solid and permanent sue- :
c -,s of the Democratic party, that the mist of j
equivocation should he cleared away, and that i
the doctrine of protection of every species I
of property should be enounced, so as to
allow of no farther equivocation. Recent '
constructions have made it a matter of vital j
necessity, thut voice should be given to the ,
rimplc and truthful expounding of the Con- j
st'.tution. uponfcso grave a question.
Without going-father hack, we may point to |
the clear and unequivocal declaration of the j
doctrine in the United States Senate, on the i
2SJ February last. by nearly all the Southern ;
Senators, and by at least one Northern Senator, j
Our readers are familiar with the strong Ian- j
guage employed by our own Senators. Their j
position was fortified by the concurrent declnr- j
ations cf others. Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, i
avowed his determination "not to cheat nor t >
be ch .au-d," and ho therefore demanded that the ]
true decliine should be enounced. Mr. Green, i
of M isouri, said: " The doctrine of non-interfcrer.ee
by Congress with slavery in the tcrri- J
tories, means, and cast onlv mean, that Congress !
* I
should neither establish nor prohibit it. That
it uil. Leave these questions to the Constilu- !
lion and the Courts. But whatever rights in- I
dividuals have in the Territories, may demand, i
and, when demanded, must hare adeyuntt '
protection." trm senator tfigier, ?>t rent;- f
svlvar.in, evidently foreshadowed his rocogni- I
lion of the correctness of Senator Green's )
views, when he said:
"It is for the courts, and not for Congress, :
to decide all legal questions that may arise as ;
to the rights of slave property in the Territo-:
r;es; that ;s the Democratic nolicy; but it if
ri'i' c'.tur that a ntcemity iciit r.crtr ir'uejvr '
l\c interference of Congress to execute a right :
decree oj the court?."
With the truth thus placed in a nut-shell, is
it not strange that there should beany diversity :
of opinion as to the vital importance of placing j
the Democratic party on the high ground of !
justice and equality to ail, and of sending forth j
a platform in all its simple truth, stripped of j
equivocation and doubt'! Let the South but i
plant itself firtuly on the broad basts of jus- :
t:ce and truth, and the national Democrats of I
the North and West, as lovers of the Conslitu- 1
ticn and the Union, will rally t<? the standard.
Unlike their opponents, the national Democracy
have always boldly and manfully avowed their :
principles, and have been rewarded by contin- i
ued and glorious triumphs. Let the same hon-!
c t oolicv be pursued now, and a similar hsj*-1
py result will follow.
We are indebted to A. Morris for Scott's
"Fair Maid of Perth," "The Black Dwarf," and
the "Legend of Montrose," of the cheap and
convenient library of sterling novels, publish
ed by T. 15. l'etcrson ana urouiers, ruuauei-;
The Bavou Sara (La.) Ledger, states that the :
slaves of the Carney estate, who were liberated
and sent from East Feliciana to Cincinnati a j
few months since, returned on the steamer a
few days ago; they prefer alarery in Louisiana :
to freedom in Ohio. !
" A Scheme to Ssttle the Cuban Qnertion." ,
Under this head the New Orleans "Crescent" 1
has an apt review of a pamphlet recently pub- |
lished in Paris upon Cuban affairs and pros- j
peels. The pamphleteer thinks that the European
powers should adopt a inore lofty tone
in dealing with the question, and protecting
Cuba against the desigas of the United States;
and that, if Spain and Cuba find it impossible
to sustain their relations of mother country and
colony, the hitler should be made independent
under the guaranteed protection of the princi- 1
pa! European and American nations. The gist I
of the question is embraced in the following
"l?r this purpose France, England, Kussia,
i |.,
the United States, Ur.?zn aim .u :
invited to take part in tlie Convention, which j
wonhl likewise solve nil the difficulties pending j
in America. The national independence of ail j
nations, now threatened by the adventurous |
{ olicv of the United States, would be secured j
through this first step of European diplomacy, i
or might be tiie subject of an addition to the j
principal treaty.
The refusal of the Cabinet of Washington i
to join in this scheme would place the Atneri- J
can Union beyond the pale of civilization, and i
trace the path which Europe should follow.? j
Has not the hour come to commence the debate i
between the celebrated Monroe doctrine and
Universal law? It may he afterwards too late.
England should be explicit as to her views on
the balance of power, and her apparent complicity
with Spain in the slave trade. Is she
for Africanization in all the Antilles, in order
to become herself the only producer of sugar,
etc??or would she aid annexation to the
L tilled States, for the aggrandizement of the
Anglo-Saxon race ?"
The "Crescent" justly remarks in answer to
the above that "while Americans desire and expect
the ultimate possession of the island, they
would nevertheless rejoice to see the Cubans
enrol themselves as a free and independent nation,
believing that sueh a step would but ensure
and smooth the way to the final, inevitable
result?inevitable, if we remain a frco aud
independent nation ourselves. As to European
diplomacy, the people of this country ru e pretty
much agreed among themselves that the question
shall not he settled hv the peremptory
dictum of foreign powers, unless such settlement
agree with ideas on this side of the water;
and if they u?u>t view that determination as arraying
the Monroe doctrine against 'universal
law,' they will probably conclude that, whatever
may be meant by the expression, it is not
a law broad enough in scope to regulate the
destinies of all the nations upon the two continents
and their dependencies. The threat of
placing the American Union 'beyond the pale
of civilization' would no doubt be a very fearful
one had it not long ago been worn threadbare
by indignant editors and orators in both
France and England. The English Abolitionists
declared us already so years ago, and that
doom has been repeatedly and emphatically j
pronounced against us recently because we refused
to give up, at the modest request of tire ,
I'aris Conference, a bad habit we have of annoy- j
ing an enemy with private armed vessels when
we are at war upon the high seas. In fact, we
have been so frequently read out of the family j
of decent nations, by reason of our general and j
particular depravity and wickedness, that the
world no doubt looks upon such a proscription
as our proper inheritance, assigned to us by an
inexorable destiny and our own natural ungodliness."
Fur the Enquirer.
Alexandria, Va., August 17, ltioO.
Messrs. Editors?The present hue and cry
against Gov. Wise, because his confidence has
been most shamefully betrayed by pretended
friends, is to me a cause for melancholy reflection.
It presents to the view a degree of viciousness
in the public uiind which forebodes
anything hut good for our institutions.
Sueh a course, towards such a man, does
convey the thought, that when men high in
the peoples' conlidence can, for the most unholy
and selfish purposes alone, undertake the
destruction of the purest patriot in the land,
how soon may they not attempt to sacrifice the
very charier of our liberties upon the same
sacrilegious altar'!
But this is not the first time, by several, that
the demon of party and personal envy have
conspired to destroy him. We have only to
1 ?. IvaaI* u I'mi' nlilillld t.i tiif? linn* fit* fill*
Tammany letter, ot I.ecoinpton memory, for
one instance, ami tlnn sec how joyously thev
sounded his death knell. " Wise is politically
dead," was heard from the mouth of every
hireling about the capital, and echoed back
lroin every point where Government patronage
was to be reached.
Hut tiie wish was father to the thought, and
the voice of the people had just drowned their j
puny cries, when we are again startled by the
howl of a fresh pack, drunk with the hopes ui
public plunder, to he secured l>y killing oft" the
honest Virginia statesman whom they knew
could never be u<ed for their had purposes.?
And, my word for it, if the spirit of true patriotism
still sunives, this present cry of "stop
thief!" will not succeed in shielding the guilty
by directing their pursuers towards the innocent.
I would a--k any fair and candid man, with
defiance, what he can see in this Donnely letter
involving any want of principle ? What tha
enemy pretends to is simply that a split is recommended
in the ranks of the hurmonim.?j
Sew York Isemocrucy; and any one who |
takes the trouble to read the correspondence j
will he forced to admit that each proposition <>f j
Gov. Wise is based upon the premises laid
down bv his correspondent, with whom he!
differs in opinion as to the objects sought, but j
says to him, if I were in your place, ami he- i
Moved as you do, 1 would do so and so. And j
who would not advise the same course, if he i
believed that a few men were about to throttle '
the will of any portion of the people, any j
where ?
But enough of this nonsense about Virginia j
dishonesty. The Old Dominion, I hope, will <
never prove recreant to her son for any judge-'
incnt pronounced by such moralists as the Al- \
tiany itcgency.
If the peat ruler of our destinies ever diJ
interpose for our country's good, ns 1 devoutly
believe ur has often done, since its foundation,
1 ntn firmly convinced that Henry A. Wise is
under Providence to he her deliverer in the
crisis which is at hand; and all this treachery,
knavery, and every species of villainy, to
which he lias been subjected, arc intended to
prepare him more thoroughly lor the work
which lies before him.
Elevated, as he will be, by the single voice
of true patriotism to the chief Magistracy of
the nation, lie will know that voice above all
others, and always be able to detect the false
notes of that band of time-serving spoils men
and tricksters, to Imrl litem front place, thwart
their designs, and thus seaurc his country's
welfare, glory and honor. Yours, &c.,
. One of tue People.

New York, Aug. 20th, 1859. (
The news received at this port by the Asia ,
on the 18th inst, was destitute of startling no- I
velty, nevertheless it presented many point3 of
interest Confidence in favor of the re-establishment
of peace, for a time at least, seemed to be J
gaining ground. The scene of most dissatis- '
faction at the proposed arrangements, continued '
to be manifested in Italy, and especialIv in the '
Dutchies. The Pope, or rather we should suv '
*l.? "?tv ?v..nnf X ntnnolli ie nniio av?m i
against all tiic arrangements which do not 1 c? ,
cognize in the fullest and most absolute extent ! j
the secular power of the 1'ontifl' within the I j
States of the Church, lie virtually demands i ]
that things shall be put back to where they j
were in Italy before the war commenced, ere J ,
bis Holiness can consent to listen to the new
proposals, regarding his honorary Presidency, j,
lie a^ks what States arc to form the Confede- j,
ration, and who is to be the real President, : j
while he is assigned the post of its honorary ' t
Ruler? These arc plain and suggestive rjues- (
tions, and bold withal, considering tliat bis j
present secular power rests on the support of i )
F rench bayonets. i
Antonelli is a ty radical and blood thirsty j,
man. lie has had eight or nine prominent citi- j f
inolmlinrF lou'i >.w nt.il l.m.l nirtlGfS. tried i .
for rebellion against the Pontifical government i ,
by a Court Martial, the penalty for which was 11
death. And it is probable that ere this, the j ,
unfortunate men hare been shot. Ifitwasajj
crime deserving death to declare in favor of; {
Piedmont, then half the Italians in Italy in- j t
curred a similar penalty. If these men have (
been shot, their blood lies at the door of France <,
and Piedmont. For it was the war commenced (
hy them which aroused Italian enthusiasm |
everywhere, and it is strange that the rising of t
Italians in the North, in their behalf, which was (
considered meritorious, should be considered in ; j
the Papal States a crime punishable with death, j f
The truth is, that Antonelli, wliatever may be J ,
the true character of the Pope, is a blood thirsty j ,
despot, worthy of the worst days of the an-1.
eient city whose seven hills are dishonored by ! <
the presence of such a tyrant in the l'Jth cen- j (
tury. II anybody should be court luartialed j (
and shot on account"of the Perugian massacre, I ,
it should be the leaders of the brutal soldiers j |
who shot down private citizens, including wo- j
men and children and afterwards plundered : (
their houses.
You will see that the contractors have coin- j j
pletcd the Great Eastern Steamship, and were J ,
to have delivered her to the company on the ,
1 Sth, (Thursday last.) Her passage across the s
Atlantic will mark an era in the present ceiitu- |
had become active in London at two (
and a half a three per cent. There was a good | ,
demand for the United .State* Government and j f
State bonds. Virginia sixes of 13SG were in j
good demand at StaSG ex-dividend, and fives of; ]
1SSS were quoted at the same figures and Ten- j ,

Class 01 ran nwu umius nn? ... ,
quest. On (he 5th of August a'?out$4,o00,0o0 j ,
in gold and silver, the former chief!)- from Aus-1 ^
tralia, had arrived in England. The absorption j j
of silver by China and lfritish India, was ex-: a
citing attention. It is continually drawn from i j
France for the East, while she again attempts ! ]
to make up losses by drawing it from England t
and other sources. It appears by recent re- j,,
turns of tiio Custom-IIouse that during the J ,
first six months of the present year the exports j j
amounted to 857,774,000 against #22,898,000 | j
for the same period last year. A good part of j t\
the exports no doubt went to supply tbc exi- i ^
gcncics of the war in Italy; hut a large amount J t
no doubt also found its way to India. j t
Havre is the chief commercial port of France, ! r
and the principal centre of American trade, j r
The war and other causes, it would seem, have ; j
seriously reduced its commerce. By the re-'s
turns made last month, it appears that the ens- j t
toiu-house receipts for July were 4,C75,0'>4
francs, showing a falling off when compared with i c
the reeeipU for the same month last year of ji
194.000 francs. War may add military glory | s
to France, but it fails to augment her indus- j ,
trial and commercial interest f|
Vou will see that the British Parliament has f
voted $500,000 for the purpose of changing j
their copper currency into bronze?thus, in j
some degree, following our example. We t
changed our copper currency, or rather added f
to it, new cents made chiefly of copper and s
nickel, which reduces the size and improves the )
color without reducing tiieir value. Bronze f
metal is composed of copper with about 8 per
ocnt of tin, together with small quantities of c
other metal. This compound, it strikes us, would s
give the pennies too bulky a size, and, withal, j a
an unsceiuly coior. u is prooaoie unu, in- j f
stead of changing the present huge penijies
into those of bronze, they mean to follow our c
plan by using an alloy which will reduce their .
size and retain their value. Tlicy make ano- j
ther improvement, by adopting a decimal cur- s
rency, something after the fa-hiuu of the I'uited i |
States. (
The meeting of the representatives of France ! j
and Austria at Zurich, to consummate the j v
terms of peace already agreed upon, continued : v
to excite much attention in Europe. The ' ^
town of Zurich is the capital of the canton of |
the same name, situated on the river Limiuut,
at its tlllo.x from the Lake of the same name. j
at its north-western extremity, and contains ],
lietwecn 12,000 and 15,000 inhabitants. The j
canton in which it is situated, ranks first in the
Swiss confederation. It lias an area of G85 f
square miles, and a population of 250,000, j
nearly all of whom are I'rotcstanls. Education
is compulsory, as far as reading and writing is
concerned. Agriculture and manufactures 1
have been brought to a high state of perfection.
It contributes about 4,000 men to the nriny,
and about 80,000 or 1,000,000 francs to the
Swiss Confederation annually, of which it was c
one of the earliest and most powerful mem- ?
hers. j.
The town of Zurich is beautifully situated j<
on both sides of the Linunat, which here di- J i
vides into two parts, forming a large I-laml in s,
the centre. Zurich was the theatre of the rc- c
formation in 151!), under the preaching of Zu- t|
inglius, who held forth in the cathedral, which n
is still standing, against the abuses of the K
Church of Rome. The Gesners, Zimmerman, j
Lavater, Rodiuer, and Pestalozi were natives of p
Zurich. The river is crossed by several stone ]j
bridges. No theatre is allowed in the : &
place, and even permission has to be oli- ^
tfiined from the authorities before a ball or a ! Ci
dance can take place. They have good educa- tl
tional institutions, libraries, reading-rooms, rj
and museums, and publish two or three news- ti
papers. The Envoys meeting there, from the ?
gay cities of Paris and Vienna, will be likely t<
to have a dull time of it. The Zurichcrs are a J
good deal like Americans, and especially of the : b
Xcw England States, men of all work and no s
play. Yet their taxes are trifling, their poor \\
rates <? bagutclle, and crimes rare. tl
We find in our statement regarding the ne- ti
gro population in the British West Indies, at s|
the period of emancipation, several small t(
Islands were inadvertently omitted. These, f(
however, if added, will not relieve the blun- I
tiers of the Tribune and Lord Brougham.? h
Writers dilibr materially regarding the total | t<
nimilwr of lilm-ks on those Islands in 18S4.? i tl
It is believed, as the planters were paid per I
capita for these slaves, they were dispos- J
ed to make the number as large as possible.? (j
No author, however, whom we have con- 1
suited, makes the number more than about '[
012,000, while others fix the number inclu- ']
ding British Guiana and Honduras, at a much s
lower figure. Taking the highest figures as- tl
Mimed, and they leave the "Tribune" nearly .1
200,000 out of the way, and Lord Brougham w
288,000 above the highest computation. If we ti
assume that these 012,000 blacks be purchased 1
by England for $100,000,000, it will still give ]
$103.38-100 per head. This sum applied to n
?!.<. tVmr rnillinn slaves in tin- I'niti'd State*. !
will give the sum of $63:1,500,000; while tl
we have shown that their lowest average val- \ p
nation at $">00 each, would give a grand total r
of $2,000,000,000. Barbadoes of which Mr. ^
Hi neks is (governor General, has its statistics
wrongly stated. In one writer the whole is n
put down at 102,000 whites and black?, while J
others reduce it nearly two-thirds. \
^Thc white population, just before cmancipa- a
tion, was estimated at 11,000 to 12,000, which t
we inadvertently noted as the negro population. j|
Sotnc authorities estimated the number of p
negroes at the period of emancipation at, t
8:1,000, a large population we should say for an i >
Island only 21 tniies in length, and 14 in width? a
It is due to Gov. General llincks, to say that h
his government ot Barbadoes hus united under 1 t
it several other small Islands, such as Granada, j I
St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Tobago and Trinidad.? y
The negroes emancipated in the British West j|
Indies were scattered over fifteen sepai-ate
Islands, few of which, with the exception of
Jamaica, contained a larger number of blacks
than are found in many single counties of the
planting States. Next to these Islands, the t
largest number were found in British Guiana, o
\ on will have seen that an Albanv naner v
has charged that a man named Lavine, con- o
nected with the Statesman of that city, and n
acting correspondent of the Herald, was the b
nan whom Cassidy let take a copy of Gov. '
Wise's letter for publication. It slates that he
las since left the Statesman, and has obtained
t situation on the Atlas and Argus, Cassidy's 1
paper. I understand Lavitie is an Englishman
by birth.
The conservative and national portion of the J
Democratic party of the city and State, as well i
is the indein-ndfiit class of Democratic journals I
ill bitterly condemn the outrageous treachery
if Cassidy and his regent associates, lor their

Larceny of the Iron Crown of Lombardy
It appears, according to a correspondent of I'
he London Morning Star, that the Iron Crown ;
f Lombardy, for which the people feel a great!
cncration, lias been stolen from the Cathedral (
f Monza, Milan, its place of deposit, and can-. (
ot now be found, though several of the clergy i
ave been arrested " j 1
mpression behind them in Gotham, where they j
vill long he recollected for their gentlemanly I

The speech of CI en. Samuel Houston, deliver- j '
,'d at Nacogdoches, Texas, abounds in uniiiiti- ] i
piled twaddle. Finding Know-Nothingism to ,
ie dead, he is no longer a Know-Nothing. He i
irobably dropped it about the time the Know- j
Nothings nominated Fillmore instead of himtelf.
Fie says that he is an "old fogy of a po- i
itician." In this opinion he is no doubt right. '!
Ie says that he was a statesman before i*i.at- i
'ok?s were built. The Declaration o( In?lelendence
was a platform?was he a statesman
icforo its enunciation? The Constitution was
mother platform?was he a statesman before
t was formed ? The truth is, platforms will
>e formed as often as new questions arise in
he progress of the Government, about which \
nen may widely differ. The part of a states- j
nan is to boldly and honestly meet them; while :
t is the part of a demagogue to dodge them, ,
?v lighting the names such u; "platforms,"
cc., instead of touching the substance. How
Iocs Houston stand on the laws of naturali/a-)
ion??against his former opinions or with
hem? How does he stand on squatter sove-:
eigntv and the protection to slave as well as j
ither property in the Territories ? On these
mportatit points he is non-committal, anil"nutide
of them his whole harangue is a tissue of
lemagoguc twaddle, nothing more.
Recent evidence published regarding the j:
ichuvlcr frauds, while President of the Newfork
and New Haven Rail Road, has gone to ;:
how that his over issues of stock were com-!
nenced as far hack as 1S-1S while the directors
irbitrarilv decided that the investigation of,
raudulent stock should not he allowed farther
aek than 1833. Those accountants engaged
n the investigation have reported their inabiliy
to make a just and reliable separ-'jonnf the ,
raudulent stock from the good, and that the ,
tock repudiated by tbe Company could not
lave included all that was tainted by Schuyler's ,
rami. | (
The Roard, on the 1st inst., declared 3 per | ,
.-cut. dividend on what tliev classed as good | ,
tock. A firm holding discarded stock, got out ; |
in injunction against the road, restraining it (
roin paying the dividend. j |
The Comnanv should have done what, after j
xpensive litigation, it niny l>e compelled lo do J
?that is, assume the stock issued by Schuyler. J
Ic was authorized by the directors to issue ]
tock with liis signature and that of his equally (
raudulent secretary, and also to sell bonds of the
Company. His conduct ruined the road and 1 (
njured other mads by millions of dollars. He ,
ras suffered by the directors to flee t<> Italy,
vhere, it lias been reported, he died of a bro- j
:cn heart, which many persons, however, who!- (
y disbelieve, and suppose that he is still living. ,

The London Maiine Chronicle referring to
the recent letter of Gen. Cass to the American
minister at Hanover, in which he asserts the '
right of expatriation as one of the rights ot '
man, says:
The occasion arises from a demand made by <
the Hanoverian government .on a man born in 1
Hanover, subsequently naturalized in America,
and returning by accident to the place of his |
birth, to undertake military service'. The j I
American government, lirmly and with justice, J
repudiates the claim. It would, in fact, be j
monstrous if a person who found the laws of a ,
military nation at variance witii Jiis views, j i
could not, by renouncing its protection, ansuivu
himself from its claim. At the same time the !
constant ami increasing migration of individuals 5
from their own to other countries renders it ! i
highly advisahlc that no douht should exist on ' <
the matter, and the right should be defined
and acknowledged by every nation in the world. J
More than once serious difficulties have arisen j
from the want of a ricar understanding on this ; <
head, in reference to the mutual position of 1
French and Hritish subjects. Instances have j '
occurred lately when Frenchmen naturalized in /
England have claimed the protection of the : t
French law; anil, on the other hand, that same j
law has been attempted to be put in force ^
against them. Neither party seem fairly to ]
have understood their position. Moreover the 'j
process of naturalisation ought not to he left to t
the mere caprice of the several ts'ates. The j !
question is one which ought to be treated by j J'
general accord, and until that is done we cannot ' ;
hope to escape occasional entanglements, all j i
the more annoying because they might he so j ?
easily avoided. . _
Washington, August 21.?There is still lit- j \
tie if any doubt, Irom circumstances which j I
have recently transpired, that a convention or j
treaty between thu United States and Mexico JL
will soon be concluded and received here from ;
Minister Mcl.anc early in September, in which , t
event Senor l.erdo will return to New York, I with
a view to conclude the pecuniary ar- v
rangemcnts already initiated by him, instead [
of first lavmg his plans before the Juarez gov- ?
eminent as he originally intended. ii
This treaty will probably be confined main- '
lv to the United States transit over Mexican *
territory, with certain commercial privileges or jj
exemption from customs duties in that con- !
ucction, together with provision for adequate ' 'i
means of pi-utection. It is confidently assert til ! '
that tlie compensation lurtnesc advantages can :
easily 1><* rendered mutually satisfactory.? ; t
Other tieaties will be proposed in <luc time, '
and in these arrangements there is no reason
to doubt that provision will be made for the j
satisfaction of American claims against Mexico.
Distinguished friends of the Juarez govern* h
ment, including a number of Mexicans now t!
here, regard the latest Mexican news as addi- 1
tionally encouraging to the cause of the consti- j"
Liitionalis'.s. and speak of the ex-romtnuiiica- >
Hon of that party by the Archbishop of Mexi- j r
i-o as a harmless proceeding. [ e
There is no foundation for the minor that .
the Secretary of War will resign his scat in the <
Cabinet, lie hopes soon to return to the per- I ti
furmatice of his olliciul duties. i r

An Awful Retribution?A Man Flayed Alivo. ' t!
Some time last Spring a company of Pike's | *
Peakers h it Gnivville, Illinois, ibr the Kansas j r,
gold regions. While traveling through the In- w
ilian country 0:1 their way out, one of the j w
company, a young man ot desperate charac-!
ter, from the vicinity of Grayville, de-1
clnrcd his determination to shoot the fiisl In- j ^
dian lie met; and, unhappily, during the day >'
they overtook on the prairie a defenceless
squaw, when he. in mere wicked wantonness,
levelleied his gun and shot her dead.
His companions were horror-stricken at the
blood-thirsty deed, hut felt that they had no
powci to punish him. The tribe to which the '
squaw belonged was not far distant when the ! rv
iked was perpetrated. They discovered her;
lifeless body, and saw at once the manner or her i
death. The pursued the jiarty of Illinois Pike"s ' c'
Peakers, and in a few hours overtook them and j
demanded to know who had committed the
murder. The company of live or six Pike's j
Peakers found themselves surrounded hy near- !
ly two hundred enraged Indians, who threaten- j
ml to immolate the whole party if they did not m
point out and give up the murderer. To save ' <m
their r a n lives they gave up 1 laynes to their j fr
vengeance, lie was taken by the Indians to a ' < !
distance, while lus companions tarried on their i kl
route to see what would be his fate. |
After awhile the Indians returned, with their | ai
victim literally llayed alive. They had skinned j ir
liim from head to foot. The wretched being j "t
was still alive when brought hack to his com- j
pnnions. lie lived in agony long enough to tell |
tiotv he had been tortured, but was soon re- : b.
