The Piedinoiitese Government had ordered

The expeditionary vessel, which had taken
her papers for Malta, had put out to sea two

the vessel immediately afierwards, a nd she,
instead ot proceeding to Malta, went to Sicily.
The Piedmoutese Government made every
possible protest against this act ot General
Garibaldi, which may involve theu/ew Italian
State in sei lous difficulties.
General Garibaldi, being inconnection with
the committee In London undertaking the
collection ol English sii-s.ripiious for Sttiiy,

Chirac* Secltenal t'*n«eati*a»Tlie Plat
The result of the Chicago Convention has
been published. The Platform adopted is as
follow* :
Resolved, That we, the deletrated represen
tatives of the Republican Electors ef the
United Suite*, in Convention assembled, in
the discharge of the duty we owe to our con
stituents and our country, unite in the fol
lowing declarations .
First That the history of the nation dur
ing the last four years bus fully established
the propriety and necessity of the organiza
tion and perpetuation of the Republican par
ty, and that the causes which called it into
existence are permanent in their nature, and
now more than ever before demand its peace
ful and constitutional triumph.
Second: That the main tennuce of the prin
ciple, promulgated in Uie Declaration of Inde
pendence, and embodied in the Federal Con
stitution, is essential to the preservation ofour
republican institution*, and that the Federal
Constitution, the rights of the States, and the
Cuion of the Stat**, must and shall be pre
Third That to the Union of the States this
nation owes its unprecedented increase in
population; Its surprising development of
maierial resources ; its rapid augmentation of
1 wealth; its happ_aes.nl hem. nnd its honor
abroad; and we hold in abhorrence all
schemes for disunion, come from whatever
j eon res they may ; and we congratulate the
country that no Republican member of Con
gress has uttered or countenanced a threat of
disunion, so often made by Democratic mem
bers of Co ii g less without rebuke nnd with ap
plause from their political associates ; and we
deuouuee those threats of disunion, in case of
a popular overthrow of their ascendency, as
denying the vital principles of a tree govern
ment, and as an avowal of contemplated trea
son, which ii is the imperative duty of an in
dignant people strongly to rebuke and forever
Fourth: That the maintenance inviolate of
the rights of the States, and especially the
right of each State to order and control its
own domestic institutions, according to its
own judgment exclusively, is essential to that
balance of powt r on which the perfection nnd
endurance of our political faith depends, and
we denounce the lawless iiivasion by armed
force of any State or Territory, no matter un
der what pretext, as among the gravest of
Fifth : That the present Democratic Admin
istration has far exceeded our worst appre
hensions in its measureless subserviency to
the exactions of a sectional Interest, as is es
pecially evident in its desperate exertions to
force the infamous l.ecompton Constitution
upon the protesting peopleof Kansas—in con
struing the personal lelation between master
and aervant to involve an unqualified proper
ty in persons—in its attempted enforcement
every where, on land and sea, through tbe in
tervention ol Congress and the Federal Courts,
of t_eextremepretensiona of a purely local
interest, aad iv its general and unvaiymg
abuse of tt.e powei entrusted to it by a "cuu
ftuiug people.
Sixth : That the people justly view with
alarm the reckless extravagance which per
vades every department of the Federal Gov
ernment: mat a return to rigid economy and
accountability is Indispensable to arrest the
system ot plunder of the public treasury by
favored partisans ; while tbe recent atnrUing
developments of fraud and corruption at the
.•Yderal metropolis show that an entire change
ot administration is imperatively demanded.
Se.ienth . Tbat the new dogma that the Con
stitution of its own force carries Slavery into
any or all the Territories of the United States,
is a dangerous political heresy, at variance
with the explicit provisions of that instru
ment itself, with contemporaneous exposi
tion, and with legislative aud judicial pre
cedent, is revolutionary in its tendency aud
subversive of the peace and harmony of the
Eig t'tk : That the normal condition of all
the territory of the United States is that of
Freedom: that us our republican fathers,
when they had abolished slavery in all our
national territory, ordained that no person
should be deprived of lite, liberty or proper
ty, without due proco-s of law, it, becomes
ouriiuty by legislation, whenever such legis
lation is necessary, to maintain this provision
ot the Constitution against all attempts to
violate it ; and we deny the authority of
Congress, of a Territorial Legislature, urof
any individuals, to give legal existence to
slavery in any Territcrj of the TTnited States.
Ninth : That we brand the recent re-opeuing
of trie African slave trade, under the cover of
our national Bag, aided by pel versions of ju
dicial power, aa a crime against humany, a
burning shame to our country and age, and
we call upon Congress to take prompt and ef
, ieiout measure for the total andliuul suppies
s. ion of that execrable trailic.
T, nth : That iv tho recent vetoes by the Feil
en -1 Governors of the acts of ihe Legislatures

A scene ot tbe wildest excitement followed,

ple. Th«»ywill stop three days In Philadel
phia, reaching New Turk in ten days. The
New York Committee propose to receive them

politan Hotel with a military and civic pro
cession. Captains Dupont, Lee and Porter
will accompany them. Only tbe principal of
ficials go. A dispatch from Washington, Fri
day, aay*:
The Japanese presents to the President were
opened this morning for inspection, and then
transferred to tbe Naval Commission, to be
delivered privately to the President to-mor
row, in the name of his Imperial Majesty, the
Ty-coon. Tho articles are of the most mag
niflcentde-cription : saddles richlvembroider
ed and embossed with gold and silver; silk
bed-curtains and bed-screen*, similar to those
used only by the Princes ol Japan, ami in
geniously elaborated: two sword.*, such as
worn by the Princes of Japan, superior to
any ever manufactured either in this country
or France : paper-hangings ornamented with
gold ; lacquered case, including writing Cass,
and a lot of valuable miscellaneo.is articles,
all of them exhibiting tbe most refined taste
and advanced artistic .kill, and superiot 'o
any which have ever beeu brought to this
country from Asia.
At about 8 P. M., the New York deleg__-.n
were introduced by Capt. Dnpont, who stated
the object of their visit, oi which the Amb ts
aadors had already been informed. The Ja
panese present were the there Ambissadiu.
and the four officers next in rank.
The delegation being introduced, the chair
mau said:
Yon r Excellencies : We are appointed a spe
cial committee by the Mayor and comonalty
of New York to invite yoa to come and to ac
cept the hospitality of the city. New York ia
the metropolis, th. largest city in the Union.
The desire to see you and have your Embassy
amongst us is very great; and we therefore
request that you will be pleased to accept our
invitation, and to inform us of the day when
your arrival may be expected.
The Ambassadors replied that they were ex
tremely gratitled at receiving the invitaton of
the city of New York, and that they accepted
it with a great deal of pleasure. They in
tended, as soon as their official busiuess was
disposed of, to communicate with Capt. Du
pont on the subject, so as to fix the day on
which they would arrive in New York. They
further stated that their visit to that large city
would be of great interest to them, and tbat
they had some busiuess matters to attend to
on arriving there.
After a personal introduction, shaking of
bends, and mutual exchanges of cards, the
delegation left the r_ception-room.
The following is a translation of the letter
ot the Ty-coon of Japan, which was pre
sented to the President by the Japanese Am
bassadors, at their official reception on Thurs
day last:
To Hi* Maj.-sty th* President of tht United States*
of America I express with respect:

Si_ano no Canii and the Metske lwasi Hego

them your consideration, charity, and respect.
Herewith 1 desire yon to spread my sincere
wish for friendly "relations, and also I have
the honor 10 congratulate you ou the security
and welfara of your country.

| Name.
A correspondent of the Philadelphia Bul
letin, writing an account of the reception of
the Japanese at a soiree given at the house ot
Gen. Cass, says : ,
The JnjwHiese-were led in by the officers of
the Commission, and after making a tour of
thesaloons, were deposited on lounges, which
ihev retained during the quarter part of the
visit. They were hemon**! la by aot always
delicate spectators, and to the ears of the in
terpreter, Namonra, (who speaks English
qtilie correctly,) such remarks as "Ain't they
beauties,'' "1 don't like to go near them,"
"These are ihe lower sort of fellows," etc.,
mast nave been full of comfort, nnd inspired
him with pride in the new society ol which I
Japan has got tlteeentree. I thought, new nnd
then, ihat .area.-in quivered about 'he plastic
mouth ol Soetdn Sago Salomon, that the eyes
of Naroaaa Qeaatro twinkled with sport, at
the tumult of bare necks ami loud voices.—
Hemmed in as they were, their idea ot Ame
rican social entertainment must be exceeding
ly vague—limited mainly to legs, indeed, of
which they saw most.
With the officers of the second grade little
pleasantries were attempted with charming
success. The arms of belles were extended for
tbeir inspection ol the jewels glutei ing in their
snow. A dashing blonde exclaimed, "oneuf
them kissed ray hand I He gave it suck a
squeeze, first „ Ohe did it splendidly !!!" The
heathen observed th* dancinc with the gravi
ty that festive exertion should always pro
duce. It was, perhaps, hot the livily aad
brilliant thing they axpected to see.
Alter perishing of refreshments, which
were handsomely provided, the Embassadors
withdrew iv the same order in which ihey
came, having devoted an hour to the enter
tainment, it was rife with the utmost ex
citements anil splendors of an American ao
ciul occasion,and if it lacked the simple genial
ity and subdued emotion of the Japanese
gathering, its brilliant traits could not ha\ii
failed to impress the inquisitive and amiable
Tux San Jlan Island Affair. In the
English House of Commons, on the 3d inst.,
Mr. Fitzgerald asked the Secretary of Foreipn
Affairs what had been done relative to ttie
San Juan aft air, and what G» _. Scott's rego
tiations had effected. Lord Russell replied
We made a proposition in August last which
was refused by the American government, they
stating over again their claim to the channel,
which they had originally claimed soon after
tbe 'reaty. Wo intended to reply to that, and
there was some question whether the Ameri
can government would give any reply to our
dispatch, hut the last intelligence 1 received
was that Gen. Cass expected to receive orders
trom the President to prepare au answer to
onr dispatch. It depends upon ihe terms of
that answer whether I can lay ihe correspon
dence on the table, or whether some further
reply an the part »f her Majesty's government
will not be necessary. A* to the state of tbe
occupation of the island of San Juan, the
i louse is aware that General Harney thought
It necessary to place eight hundred meu and a
battery of guns fin tbe island. General Scott
wa. «ent there with orders from tne President
10 u«ehis own discretion, on the basis of Mr.
Secretary Mercy's dispatch, which is well
known to all of va. General Scott, acting in
the spirit of that dispatch, immediately sent
away fiom the island all but one hundred
men" and declared that neither party ough' to
have exclusive jurisdiction while the question
was pending- He also neat away the guns,
and informed the Governor ol Vancouver*
Island and our Admiral of what he had done.
The Governor of Vancouver's lataed did not
consider himself auihori_ed to enter into any
compromise or agreemeut with General Scott,
not having had any orders from home. Or
ders have since been sent to the Admiral to
land Uh> marines—the same number of men as
tbe United States bad on the island. We said at
the same time that It was fairly iv accordance
■with what ihe American government had de
clared that there should be no exclusive ju
risdiction exercised in the tslaud. There has
been some doubt in the mind of tbe Governor
of Vancouver's Inland whether we should
have a magistrate oa the island, lest it might
create confusion. How that has been decided,
I ciuuot say, but such was the state of affairs
at tbe date of my last intelligence.

Taa Ibimh F._ODoK._Th* English papers
ere noticing tbe remarkable ezodn* from Ire
land now taking place. The London Times
The Irish emigration still continues at a
rate which threatens results far beyond the
calculations of tbe economist perhaps even
tbe wishes of the statesman. It is no longer
the overflow of a vessel full to repletion, bnt
the operation ot a syphon which drains to the
very bottom. If tbat syphon may be regarded
in any visible form, it is tbe railway system,
which, in the eyes of every Irishman, appear*
to hay* one common terminus across the At
lantic. He sees trains of hopeful, if aot hap
py, faces going off to tbe Land of Promiee,
from wbicb friends and relations have sent
not only invitation*, bnt the means of accept
ing tbem. A train starts to catch an emigrant
vessel as regularly as in England to catch a
steamer across tbe channel. Tbe emigrant
ships have no longer to peep into every little
port to pick up their passengers. They as
semble at ('ork, aud pass in a continuous
stream, if it may be so called, across that
ocean which, wide as it be, Is easier to an
Irishman than the golf which divides him
from England. At present it cannot be said
thai there Ipnves Ireland as much as the na
tural increase, but the causes in operation
are nut unlikely to make it exceed ihatrate.
As the small holdings are thrown into larger,
and the farm grows to the English scale, there
must bo numbers everywhere bred to the oc
cupation of land, and with all the ideas
adapted to it, but unable to gat holdings that
will require little or no car iial Tney go
across the Atlantic, as a matter of course.-—
Brothers, uncles and neighbors have gone
long before, and send, not only good news, but
the substantial pledgcof its truth in the shape
of orders on Irish banks. In Ireland the
remark is, that these are welcome to go. They
are the Irish surplus. They constitute the
storehouse of independent enterprise, which
Providence would seem to have prepared
through long ages for the peopling of the New
World. But there is a class who are not bid
"liod speed" quite so cheerfully. Laborers
thai is, men with strong sli.ews and thews,
who can do a good day's workand are content
to receive wages, are, as they always have
been, the chief want of Ireland. The new
rac of farmers do not like to see them go —
Bin who cau pick and choose iv human af
fairs t There are good, easy souls, who enter
life, with this speculation, wuoexpect in every
thing the fruit without the husk, the meat
without the bone, the sweet without the sour
the harvest without the tillage. In Ireland
they exiwct a good farm, a good house, a good
landlord and some good laborers, who shall
come when wanted and do a good day's work.
But the postman knocks at all doors, and
brings to these as well as their prouder neigh
bors, letters and remittances, and good ac
counts from the Western States; so off they
go, leaving the new tenant farmers to manage
as well a* they can.
Thr Adriatic Abroad—The noble steam
ship Adriatic i« creating quite a sensation at
Havre. The Courrier dv Havre of May Ist
says that Capt. Comstock had invited a num
ber of the prominent citizens of the place to
visit his magnificent vessel. The editor was
among the party, and says:
■•Our recent visit te the Adriatic leaves us
impressed wiih two sentiments: The first,
that of a profound admiration for the genius
of the inventors who have successively de
signed these powerful vessels, and also for the
energy of a nation which, owing to its spirit
of enterprise, which no partial failure dis
courages, has known how to realize them.—
The second impression is one ot painful re
gret that our nation, during the last fifteen
years, has so far lost sight of transatlantic
navigation that we have not a single steamer
worthy of bearing the tri-color, and proving
that France is yet, and above all, la grande na
Javanksis Embassy.—The new cabin recent
ly erected on the spar deck of the Niagara, for
the accommodation of the Japanese, is a mag

ployees of the New York Navy-Yard. It is
situated in the after part ot the ship, and com
mences at the bulkhead of the propeller house
from which it extends some seventy-eight
feet; it is fifty feet wide and contains fourteen
state-rooms altogether and is divided into
three apartments. The first apartment com

rooms which are intended for the four

said to have been made. There are now in
operation ten gold, twelve silver, and abou'
three hundred copper mii.es in that republic.
The Custom-House receipt-, for the quarter
ending March 31, are three-fold those of the
cot las ponding period last year. Peru had
been visited by a succession of violent earth
quakes, which had done considerable damage
to Lima, Callao, and other places. The town
of Chorillo was almost completely de-troyed,
and several lues lost. The 10.-s of property
in Luna is estimated at. a million of dollars,
auii.several persons were injured. Callao did
not suffer so much. Considerable excitement
and alarm had been cawed at Callao by tbe
appearance of a French ship-of-war with a
formidable force on board, which had come
with the view of enforcing the French claims
against Peru. The alternatives offered were
-übinission to the terms proposed or bom
bardment of tbe port. There is nothing from
Bolivia or Ecuador. From Costa Rica, tbe
the election of Moutealegrette to the Presi

An Immkise (Ivs— The largest gun ever

made of the best quality of iron. Its length
ts US leet, diameter at the touch-hole -I : , feet,
and M inches at the bore. Its appearance,
whilst passing along the streets, attracted
general attention and caused considerable in
quiry. Some difficulty was experienced in
getting it firmly placed upon the cars for trans
portation. A bridge, constructed of heavy
timbers and resting upon two substantial
freight cars, finally received it. It will throw
a ball weighing nearly tare* han't red pound*.

Fairfield Eat**— Fifth Day.— The Spring
meeting over the Fairfield Course closed Sat
urday lest, with a handicap for g-iixi, two
mile heats, for which there were five entries,
only four of whom came to the post, viz:—

In the first heat a'beautiful start was effect
ed, Irona taking the lead. Leisure second and
John L. third. In making the first turn Oys
terman got into the Inner ditch, and after
blundering for.'lO feet, fell, skinning oneof his
own legs badly, and fracturing the left collar
bone of his rider. Iroua led the first mile in
1.50. but on the back stretch John L. caught
and passed her, leading home in 3:5.3,1,. John
L. now became the favorite against the field,
with few takers.
In the second heat John L. led off, bnt wai
soon passed by Irona, Leisure taking the sec
ond place and thus the first mile was run in
l.'tl. In the second mile John L. answered to,
the call of his rider, and passed Leisure, but
fnileil to catch Ironu, who won the heat in
li-.-tO 1 .,. John 1,, was now drawu, his owner
believing that b* had no show to win.
Iv the ihird heat Iroua led from the score,
