We have received the Remonstrance of the
New Orleans Company, against the Report
and Resolutions of the Mexican Congress an
nulling this treaty. It is a very able docu
men!, and places the worse than Punic faith
of the Mexican Government iu a light so clear,
that it is wonderful to us how there can be any
d >übt upon the subject. The transfer of the
rights ofGaray to Manning & Mackintosh was
clearly acknowledged by the commissioners
who signed, ou the part of Mexico, the treaty
of Guadalupe Hidalgo; for when Mr. Trial
otTered $15,000,000 for the right of w ay across
the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, these commis
sioners replied that it had already been granted
to a private contractor, and had been transfer
led, ''with the. sanction of the Government, to
Lnglish subjects, of whose rights .Mexico can
not dispose.'' Of these " English subjects''
(Mantling and Mackintosh) it was purchased
by Hargous & Co., and it became vested in
them by a tide which it is impossible to shake
The principal ground upon which the Mexican
Congress relies, is, that the Government of Sa
las, which, by a decree dated sth November,
1846,' renewed and extended the original grant
toGaray, was a usurpation. Yet we find that
Manning and Mackintosh purchased after this
decree, and under it, and that their purchase
w as acknowledged to be good by the commis
sioners who signed the treaty of Guadalupe
Hidalgo. If it be contended that these latter
had no power in the premises, then that treaty
is a dead letter, and ire have no right to Cali
fornia and New Mexico which we claim under
it; for they had plenary powers to settle all
matters with this Government. Resides, when
w as it ever the case, that foreigners were com
pelled to look, in matters of contract, farther
than to the Government de facto? What have
they to do with the right of the Government
which they find in existence, to rule over the
country.' Mr. Jefferson bought Louisiana from
Napoleon. His Government was afterwards
overthrown, and declared to be a usurpation.
Yet had Louis XV'III laid claim to Louisiana,
on the ground that the so-called usurper had
no power to sell it, would an American have
been found to acquiesce in such a claim? And
would the American claim have been support
ed !-.y an attempt to prove ; that the Government
of Napoleon was noi a usurpation? No! most
assuredly not. Our commissioners wosld
have said, we know nothing about the claims
of your rival governments. All we know, and
all it is necessary for us to know, is, that we
bought this country, for a fair consideiatior,
from the person who exercised supreme power
at the titue. Whether he did so of right, or by
usurpation, is your business ani! net ours. The
Government of the Restoration did not repu
diate the debts contracted by Napoleon, nor
did the Government of the Republic refuse to
pay those contracted by the Bourbons. It has
always been a principle of this government,
to treat with the government de facto, of every
country with which it has relations, and this
principle is founded in common sense. If a
different one were adopted, we should become
the judges of all governments, and would
thereby establish the doctrine of intervention
;>n the widest possible basis.

lions an extraordinary fact in acoustics, about
which the editors say there can he no mistake:
An intelligent and very respectable gentle
man, by the nunie ot Ebenazer Snell, who is
.still living at the age of 80 and upwards,
was in a corn iield with a negro on the 17th of
June, 1776, ill the township of Ctiuimington,
Mass., 120 mi let west of Bunker Hill by the
course of the road, and at least 100 in an air
line. Some time during the day the negro was
lying ou the ground, and remarked to Ebene
zer that war somew here,for he could
distinctly hear the firing. Ebenezer put his
•.-ar £o the ground, and also heard the firing dis
tinctly, and for a considerable time. He re
members the (act, which made a deep impres

lioelled for forfeiture on account of excess of
passengers, has been released by orders from

1 he particulars of this revolting affair, w hich
we hud in the Patriot, we publish below :
It appears thut a man named Wm. H. Wil
liams had, °, late, reasous lo suspect the fi.
delity of his wife and accordingly left her.giv
itiS her all the furniture he possessed. On
Saturday las, she left the house of her injure
husbaud, and removed her effects to No 333
SoiOli Chat lea street. The husband, stil'l hav
ing Hint affection for his errine wife, which all
men that realty love cannot throw off, went to
her residence on Sunday night, and passing
up the alley he thought he heard some one
within in suppressed conversation; he jumped
the fence and entered the house, where he
found his wife in company with a man named
Samuel Abbott. He rushed upon the guilty
pair, and thrust a large knife, which he bad
in his hand, into the left shoulder of his wile,
immediately repeated the blow and stiiking
her in the right shoulder just below theehoui
der-olade, the knife entering the third and
' fourth ribs, and separating the lungs. The
uiifortunate woman ran through the back en
trance and thence into ihe street, where she
fell and expired. Williams made several
thrusts at Abbott, and inflicted two or three
very severe wounds upon his person. He im
mediately after left the house and gave him
self up to the watchman; who was not aware
of the difficulty, until informed by W. He was
taken to the Southern District watch house,and
Captain Heffner immediately repaired to the
residence of the unfortunate woman, and had
the matter investigated. When the Captain
returned to the watchhouse, he informed Wil
Hams that his wife was dead, when he imme
diately burst into tears and said he was »oirv
for what lie had done, but any man would hav.-
done the same thing had he been in hi* place.
From all the facts in the case it appears that
Abbott had been seen in company with W.'s
wife several times, previous to this unhappy
occurrence. Williams was immediately com
mitted to jail to await his trial before the
Criminal Court. While the examination was
going on at the watch house, die excitement
on the outside was very great, and dire were
ihe threats made against the man who had
been the cause of tins melancholy deed, and
the greatest sympathy expressed for Wil
liams, whose honor suffered such grevious
A Martinique Belle.—N. P. Willis, in
an amusing letter to the '"Home Journal,"
from Martinique, gives the subjoined descrip
tion of a jet black young lady, who moves
"in the best of society' of Fort Royal, and
who is said to be more admired by the French
Officers stationed there, than any other lady
on their visiting list:
M'lle Julietta is of the blood that does not
thin w,th the climate, as do the white?. She
is about nineteen, and as plump as Hebe—her
original model from Nature apparently just
perfected. He skin, though as black a one as
i ever saw, is fine-grained and lustrous, and
her shoulders, (there was no denying,) quite
beautiful, i ffe gorgeous-coloured Madras tur
ban covered her forehead to the eyebrows,
and, with a long sweep of twisted fold over
the cheek, concealed the hair—the lace hern
of her snowy chemise being the next down
ward interruption to the lines of rounded
ebony. Her features are strictly African—
the lips full, and the nose of that degree of
flatness which is only affectionate, and which
I take to be the highest expression of this
shape in contradistinction to the more repell
ing aquiline. Her eyes would have been
beautiful if there had been anything white in
the neighborhood with which to contrast thein
—but black eyes on so black a ground were
"coals to Newcastle." They had one fine
quality, howevei; they had never been con
tracted with suspicion, or an attempt to under
stand anything that did not speak for itself;
and they were, consequently, as tranquilly
open as the cup of two water-lilies. Her
smile was of the same never-startled confid
ingness—coming and going with the ease of a
shad iw—and l:er teeth were only too white
and perfect for any piquancy of expression.
No jeweller could have cut them more evenly
out of pearl. Her little fat black hands were
daintily tapered, and looked lady-like. She
wore large rings, and these, with her heaps
of gold chains and the enormous gold ear
rings, which they cail cing clous, made a sort
of barbaric glitter. I was pleased, by the way,
with the consistency with which she adhered
to the dress and ornaments exclusively worn
by those of her own colo-. The cina-clous,
ear-rings, particularly—masses of solid gold,
resembling five small kegs welded together by
the sides—are seen in eveiy respectable bla«k
ear, never iu a white one.
A wallet, presumed to have been thrown there
by a person suspected of passing counterfeit
money, was found, as we learn from the Mar
shall Eagle, on the bank of the river near Gun
tersville, Ala., a few days since. It contained
counterfeit bills to the amount of about $1088.
as follows:
Seven $100 bills on Merchants' Bank ofS.
C*; one 4100 bill on the Cantti hank of New Oi
leans; two §>30 bills on the bank of George
town, S. C.; seven $'20 bills on the Slate Bank
oIIS. C.; ten $10on the bank of Augusta—well
executed; two $3 bills on the Bunk ot Cape
Fear, and one $2 oil the Bank ol Kentucky.
Among other horrible occurrences in
Baltimore oa the sth, we observe the follow
ing :
It is reported that a gang of unlawful des
peradoes yesterday visited a woods near the
city, where a Sunday School was celebruiing
the 4th, and in a very insulting language, or
dered several young ladies toleave their swings.
The gentlemen in company with the ladies,
ordered the ruffians oft" the ground, when a
general uielee ensued. In the scuiHe, it is said,
that a child was crushed so badly, that death
ensued in a tew minutes. If such should be
the facts, we hope the perpetrators of the out
rage may be caught aud summarily punish

He was too heavy. Great excitement prevailed
