Expatriation in Baden, Gkruanv, The

declarations regarding the expatriation ques

citizens, who have been subjects in Baden, to
perform duty there in oase they return, even if
they have emigrated without consent that is,
if they return merely for a visit. It is pre
sumed that the expatriation controversy bore,
and the IobI letter of General Cass, hat had a
wholesome influence abroad. .

Sri.lino Irdian Squaws. Horace Greeley
writes from Big Sandy, Oregon, J uly 0, that

ularly and openly as Circassians nt Constanti

to eighty dollars about that of Indian horses,
I hear it stated that, though all other trade
may be dull, that is yonng squaws Is always
brisk on Green Riier and the North rlatto."

It is related of John Randolph that, at one

agitated on the subject of missions to Greece,
be found her towing garments, as she told him,
"for the poor Greeks." Ag bo left the house
he found the yard alive with half-clad negroes,
and rushing back, be exclaimed, "Madam, the
Greeks are at your door !" This Is an old story,

On Thursday we went over to Nelf 's to see
the grand fete thampeire, which drew together
four or five thousand of the fun-secking

Tho speculation and caucusing affecting
the selection of a successor to Horace Mann,
as President of Antioch College, seems to bo
as rife in its uphere as that in the country nt
large, where bo many self-sacrificing patriots
are so willing to surrender themselves for
four or eight years to their country's good.
Tho Trustees were to have met last Wednes
day, but the wires had not been sufficiently
pulled, and tho mooting has been postponed
to September?. Of those whose names have
been mentioned in connection with this im
portant Clmir, I hnve henrd of three Rev.
A. V, Peabody, D. D., of Portsmouth, N. II. ;
Rev. Rufus V. Stebbina, of Boston; Rev.
James Freeman Clnrke, of Boston. Dr. Bel
lows was, we believe, addressed on the sub
ject, in accordance with tho wish expressed
by Iloraco Mann on his death-bed, that he
should bo called to tho post but he has, to
my knowledge, positively nnd decidedly de
clined to be considered in connection with it.
This seems to tne much to beregretted. The
Doctor has just the qualities which would make
a fine eollcgo president. He has fine manners,
and a cheerful, elastic spirit, which always
makes him popular wiih the young; he has the
eloquenco to subdue nnd elevate them; he knows
how to reform the discipline of an institution
where any error may have crept in; he knows
more of the history, difficulties, neods and im
portance of Antioob than any man living; tak
ing all ef which iato consideration, it is a pity he
has refused. The only one of the three othera
named, who could possibly fill the place with
honor to the oollego and himself, is James Free
man Clarke. Mr. Clarke has long been known
and loved in the West; in Louisville, the scene
of his earliest labors, in Zl. Louis, in Cincin
nati, in Chioago, in Milwaukie, he could go to
morrow and find a large church of loving
hoarts around him. His friends are not of any
seot they are Christians, Methodists, Quakers,
Presbyterians, Unitarians, He has not given
to aDy religions party what was meant for
mankind. He has long been associated with a
band of earnest worshipers and workers in Bos
ton, known as the "Disciples," vho have incor
porated with their observances some of the prac
tices of Medodists, Quakers, ftc.
Though he Is an earnest believer in super
naturalism, tho rationalists love to listen to
him. Ho has a mind stored with varied and
rich learning, much, eloquence, and, I suppose,
never spoke a word of nonsense in his life.
His printed works, his sermons, works on Eu
rope and on Prayer, are widely known and ap
preciated. Ho would be a God-send to the
Dr. Peabody, the editor of the North Ameri
on lteviru), and author of several controversal
works in favor of the Unitarian Theology, is a
writer of some stiffness but much ability; a
man of wide reading but not exactly a scholar;
of earnestness but with no address; he would
be a valuable assistant to the more serious and
elderly students of tbo college. With the large
mass, however, of livoly harum-soarum young
men, wo can scarcely iiuagiuo that his influence
could be strong, any more than we can imagine
that to tho aforesaid young men, for literary en
joyment, could bo the old files of tho North
American Itcnicm, Dr. Peabody bas also a lack
ofattruotiveno8s in the pulpit, which unless the
young folk of Antioch are euch as, like Mr.
Choate, " go to their psws as they go to their
beds, for ropoie," would prove a dreary defect.
Of the other personage spoken of, the less

Thoan, who was mentioned yesterday as hav
ing been drowned near Waterford. Four or
five years ago, the deceased and his brother

toms of hydrophobia, and was killed. At a
I a tor period the brother was seized with the
horrible mania, and died. Ever sinoe, the

daring which he Buffered terrible agony, and

Additional News by the Hungarian.
Qukbrr, August 21. The following details
of the lltinyarian'i advices are furnished :
The Conference was fully constituted, as fol
lows :
Austria Count Coloredo, and Baron Mer
penborg. France Baron Boargneney, and Marquis
Sardinia Chevalier de Sambers and Chev
alier Iococau.
The government of Zurich had weloomcd the
Embassadors, and were to give them a publio
rooeption on the 1 lib instant.
The first formal sitting of the Congress took
place on the 8th, at which the Surdinian Rep
resentatives assisted.
Tho second sitting was held on tho 9th, but
nothing transpired as to the proceedings.
Urkat Britain, On the 8th, the affairs of
Italy wore debuted in both houses of Parlia
ment. In the House of Lords, the Marquis of
Normandy inquired if there was any objection
to produce the papers relative to the projects of
peace, transmitted to Austria before the Treaty
of Villa Franca. He denounced tbe oonduct of
the Government as one sided, and evincing no
desire to maintain neutrality.
Lord Woodhouse, in reply, reiterated the
statement thnt England sent terms of peace to
Austria at the request of France, but without
giving any advice or expressing an opinion on
the subject. He said it would be most incon
venient to produce the documents, in the pres
ent state of the negotiations.
Earl Granville acknowledged the act of Lord
John Kussell as the united aot of the Cabinet.
In the House of Commons, Lord Eloho
moved an address to the Queen, declaring that
it would bo Inconsistent with the honor and
dignity of England, after having preserved a
strict neutrality, to take part in any confer
ence for settling the details of peace, the pre
liminaries of which had already bson arranged
between the Emperors of Franca aud Austria.
Lord Elcho praised the neutral course of the
late government, and censured the anti
Austrian feeling evinoed by the present
Mr. Kinglaro moved the previous question,
feeling that it would be unwise to bind tbo
government to any line of policy, regard lesa
of ohanges which might tako place at any
Mr, Gladstone said that the eloctor'i motion
was not relative to the present position of af
fairs. The government had no intention of
taking part in settling the details of peaoe on
the basis of the Villa Franca treaty. The
belligerents themselves would settle tboso de
tails, and what would remain to be settled,
would be the great question of Europoan
policy, in which he thought England should
play her traditional part. He defended the
government and willed for a decisive vote
against the resolution.
Fitzgerald said that the object of the resolu
tion was to restrain the Government from car
rying out its porsonal sympathies, which wero
inconsistent witb the treaty obligations of the
country. Parliament sought not to sanction
the Government joining in the Congress with
out being informed of what the Great Powers
hod agreed upon in regard to the subject.
Sidney Herbert argued that the neutrality
expired with tho war, and that he saw no
reason why England could not consistently join
in the Congress.
Messrs. Horrman and Whiteside spoke in
favor of the polioy of tho Government.
Lord John Russell again proclaimed that the
Government had not the slightest intention to
go into a European Congress to settle the details
of tbe peace of Villa Franca; nobody evtr in
vited them to do so. He admitted that there
were difficulties in tho way of the Government
entering in the Congress, and matters were in
that state that no determination had been
arrived at. He appealed to tho House to leave
the question in the haids of the Ministers, who
would dooide when tho whole facts of the case
were before them.
M. Disraeli warned tho Government of the
dangers to be incurred by entering the Con
gress, but stated his objection to the House
coming to a decision after a hasty deliberation,
and hoped that Lord Elcho would not press his
motion to a decision.
After some remarks from Lord Palmerston in
defense of tho course, and in denunciation of
the resolution, Lord Elcbo said thut he was
satisfied with tho administration made by the
Government, and the result of the debates, and
would not press his motion. -
In the House of Lords, on the 0th, the sub
ject of the National Defenses was referred to.
Lord Kingsdown contended that the army
and nary would never be on a satisfactory foot
ing till the Government had the power of com
pulsory service. The Earl of Plpon thought it
would be most injudicious to resort to compul
sory power, and pledged every effort of the
Government to make defonse secure.
In the House of Commons, tbe East India
Lonn Bill was finally passed.
Tho completion of tho steamship 67real
Eatlrm was formnlly celebrated on the 8th,
by a banquet civen on bourd. which wns at
tended by many members of both Houses of
ran lament, and a number of most distin
guished engineers and scientific men. The
engines, both screw and paddle, were set in
motion for tho first time, and tho result was
satisfactory in the very highest degree, and
far beyond expectation.
Lord Stanley proposed the toaBt of, "Suc
cess to the Grtat JEattcrn," and painted in
glowing terms the marvels her success will
accomplish. Mr. Brunei, the engineer, and
Mr. Scott, the builder, were tonstcd, but tho
owner was absent from ill-health. The ship
presented a beautiful and finished aspect,
being almost ready for sen.
The city article of the Timn says in regard
to the stipulations of the treaty alleged to
hnve been arranged between Minister
McLano and Juarez, at Vera Ortiz; that Mex
ico will, from tlio moment tho treaty is rati
fied, virtually pass undor American sway.
It thon adds that the result will bo advant
ageous to Mexico and the world, but thinks

tions. Tho American Government is urged
at every step to protect tho interests of for
