From thie Corrtspondcne of the Phil'a Gazet<
WAsatsN-ros, January 14.
In tie correspondence commuicatel toQ C9
gress, there s4 a letter from Lord Clarendon,
May 2, 1854, in replying to Mr. Buchanan's I
"statenieat"-for the last he las never found
conviwitit to attempt to answer-which matk
a most extraorditary disclosure, as will be rt
dilv seen, whea attention is invited to tfhep:
ticitlar points. Speaking of the British cu
struction of the treaty, in reference to the pt
teetion of the Mosquitos, lie s:ys, " that witt
little more lh.m a month altertho treaty of 18,
had been ralitied," further negoliations were t
tered into, and tpJe "British interpretation was
once accepted by tie Secretary 6f State, A
Now, when it is remembered that the ratifit
tions of the treaty were exchanged on the 4th
July,'1850, and that Gen. Taylor died only
few days ifter-the 9th, [ think-this develt
ment has a most signifieant meaning. Mr. Wt
ster was a member of the Senate when that tr4
ty was submiued, and advised its ratificati<
knowg full well that no such construelonh.
is now impudently set up by the British Govel
ment was ever entertaiined on either side duri
the negotiations. How, then, lie could .ha
been so-prompt to repudiate the principle of I
own vote, and, as an American Secretary
State, to accept the terms of interpretation d
tated by the British Minister, Sir Henry Baw
is more tha [ sltall'undertake-to explain. T
indecent haste of that act of repudiation, too
supposing the allegation to be true-when G%
eral Taylor had 'been hardly two weeks i I
grave, and the ink Qf.jis signature scarcely d
excites mingled surprise and indignttion.
Lord Clarendon has producei no evidence,
be sure, verifying such a concession from )
Webster; but those who know the Intimv
which subssted between the latter and Sir lit
ry Bulwer and wbo had the opportunity of a
appreciation of the enfinent skill, ab.lity a
perseverance of the Britisi regotiat r, may ri
satisfied he never was content with an.y ver
assurance from Mr. Webster, but took occasi
to obtain auch a committal as warranted the a
thatic declaration of Lord Clarer.don.
And I have some personal reason to be sat
fled of the justice of this impression, by I
subsequent offiial action of Mr. Webster, wh
fully sanctions all that has been alleged. Tr
years after Lord Clarendon states that Mr. W~
ster allowed the British interpretation, the i
gotiations then referred to were brought .t
desereditable~oncluioni here, throtugh the jo
agency of Mr. Webster and Mr. Craimpton.
A 'project of settlement was agreed up
which assutmed to settle all the questions
contested boundary in Central America; wh
admitted the Mosquito (virtually the British) ti
to San Juan; which conceded the British p'
tectoratte over the Morqui:os; and wvhich und
took to direct the internal legislationi of Ni
~vagua, by ixing the tariff of dnties on inmpor
tions into her territories. Tlhis scheme, wht
niot only sttrrendered the wholo American s
of the question, but recognized ever more p
.tnsionts thtan Great Britain hatd ever prevjiou
claitmed, was sigtted in itis city itt Junte, 18

to Central America, in compatny with the thi
agents, and Nicaragua at onc~e rejected the off

and the conversiton ot her sovereignly into

VALUE OF THfE HoG~ CROP.-A practical al
cultural paper, the Working Fatrmer, states
the value of the hog crop this year in the Uni
State wilt fall little short of two hudred a
lions of dollars, or fifty million of dollars mu
than the cotton crop. In the United States th~
are believed to be'fifty million of hogs rail
yearly, or more than in all the States of Eor<
combined. In Great Britain the number is el
mated at two million, of which Ireland ha
large proportion, and Scotland nearly two hi
dred thousand. Anstria has about five milli
swine, and Austriat-italy two hundred iad fi
thousand. France hams from five million to
milliton. Russa has an immense number of it
hoirs, but they arc merely skin and bone, vat
ble~ principally for their bristles. It is estima
thatainety-six million pounds of lard are mt
in the United States, of which twenty mill
pounds ar:e made . in Cincinnati. England a
Cuba each take annually nine million pounds
American lard. --

The intelligence brought by the Arabia, (says the I I

'st ticity of the reprt-to some extent it is qualified- by
al the dispatch of yesterday-there is room td doubt IF

you and the future to solve: but certain it is that
some of your champions, both in the lloute and

project, shall have the privilege o7 withdrawing thei
stock, :,tter paying their rateable share of the expen
stes alrea-ly incurred. provided they do so within
sixty days from the firtL of January.. Ndw, the
i sixty days are about hall nunbered, and we desire
to kngs how to proceed in order to avail uiurselves
fr this high privilege. We have been thinking that
'we yet hal a right to be heard (bnt that is niothitig
Ivith the diplomacy of men " entirely great") and
that you won!d have the' magnanimity to call ts
togeth:er for the two.fuLd purpose of acting uptn the

draw our stock if we ehoose so to do. Ilow, sir, do
von know that the Compahy will accept'the amuend

all ? Perhaps these interrogattions are not po rtinent,
and it would be more proper to ask it' you have gone
over, horse foot and dragoon, to your put city, ani
intend forcitig us to build a Rail Road from A tgusta.
But be assured, sir, that we are not all such iu'ser
able dupes as not to kiiw our rights. Justice de
nmands a meeting of the Stoekholders-counition
sense dietates the nec'ssity of it, and the rights of
Stockholilers knock at your door for the call-wiy
not call them together ! A re you araid tIe amend

company will be disolved by direct vote or other
wise ? Still the voice of the conpany is for a meet

dtcrmine these matters ? Then it is your duty to
net fkr us and there will be no call. On no other prii
iple enn you justify your " masterly inactivity" anl
