By order of the : Rkpublicaw Cm. Com. Walker Acknowledged. PIRACY XBCOUBAGKD BT THIS GOVKBNUIlfT, It is humiliating to be compelled to chron icle acts of ourlm government which are certain to bring upon our nation the re proaches of all Christendom. , Never, in the history of our country Gave we been so frequently, and eo notoriously disgraced in the eyes of the civilized world never has our national honor been so frequently tar mshed never has plighted faith been so often and so utterly disregarded, as during the Presidency of the. contemptible little New Hampshire tyrant' Ui'"! ;' Liteulgence baa reclid us that the gov eminent of walker, the Nicarauguan land' pirate, has been officially acknowledged, by the reception of Padre' Viiil a Soman Catholic priest as Minister Plenipotentiary, This is the first instance in the history of our government, we believe, where 8 Cath olio priest has been received as the 'legal representative of a foreign power, and we trust it may be the last. But of this it was not our intention to speak. The acknowl edgment of Walker's government, by the reception of any man as Minister, is the outrage to which we would call attention. When this notorious robber outlaw at tempted the subjection of Lower California, our government issued its Proclamation, and ordered its navy and army to arrest the pro gress of his banditti. The course ODenlv pursued by the President was right and proper, and was universally approved by honest, right-minded men everywhere. But circumstances soon led us to believe that the course openly pursued was all a iham that teereuy the President winked at the outrage We now feel confident that such was th fact. When driven out of Lower California and Sonora, he 'turned ud' hv Niearairaa. it was intimated by the British government that he was secretly encouraged by this gov ernment that, as in the case of Texas, the fixed determination of this government was to extend her dominion oyer Central Amer ica, and, as she could not do so orenlv with out a direct violation of her treaty with Great ri;aui, sue guubu w uo so uy secreny en' courag filibustering expeditions, intend bg, so soO.n. a be country fell into the hands of thesa outlaw, to "annex" it to the United States.. The delicate relations existing at that tim between this country and Great Britain werb.sudh that an ac knowledgment of such an Intention would have led to an open rupture. . DuIIci;v inO deception, therefore, were again resorted k jf reclamations were issued against fillibus tenng expeditions leaving our shores. Our national police were, commanded to prevont our citizens, from leaving to engage in such "enterprises." Every outward mark of good loiui oa our part was manuestea, to quiet .1 1 . - we appreaensions oi me untisn govern ment. It was well known here, however, that this was all a sham that armed expe ditions left our shores frequently to ioin the outlaw Walker that prominent government -S-!f 1 1 .. . a uiuoitus wore personally interested 1Q tU6 enterprise, and that the President'! Proc lamations were only intended at a blind. When the notorious' scoundrel, Parker H. French, was sent hero as the representative of Walker't government, the President wu still fearful of an open acknowledgment of us government, ana rrencn received notice to leave the country, or he might be arrested for a violation of our neutrality law. ; But French did not leave immediately, as. di rected. He knew very well that ha would not be arrested that those In high, places did not care to have their duplicity exposed. . But now, Walker is in .trouble, lie is likely- to lose his rascally head, unless im mediate assistance is rendered. Men, arms, and money are wanted. Only one step can be taken to procure these and save Walker. His government must be acknowledged. A Catholic priest comes forward aa ita repre sentative, and he is officially recognized.' v ' No sooner is the telegraphic news receiv ed at tho seaboard than, we rvad that yes- Sels of war. with men. moneY. arma.'and ' ammunition are preparing to leave . our of shores to ioin the rrreat filibuster's armv. Bow, the Question arises: What is the to tout object to be attained in the acauisi- tionof this territory? The solution of this question will lead to the solution of all the mysteries connected with the President's 1 action. It is a link in the gtand scheme of the Slave Power, to obtain the ascendency in this government. Nicaraugua, the cfcre ""I? aoout for its own sake. The acqui- ot uioa is tne key to all their anxiety an army can be placed at his disposal sum . . ... r ? cient for the emergency. Walker can then get up a quarrel with Spain, conquer and annex Uuba to his dominions, and then seek and obtain admission into this Union.. This is a favorite project with the South. The Cincinnati Convention is close at hand. President Pierce seeks a nomination for a second term. He has, during his term Dowed lower to the whip of the Slave Pow er than any white man ever did before. But uougias and Uass have 'out under him, by led. advocating this new villainy. Having sac- rificed his manhood already, and having uumiag w lose, ne consent to ao tnis aeea, u oraer inai, tne ooutn may nave no excuse jiiiiiHu iiiaucw.

A very interesting fight has recently sprung up between Gen. Wool and Gov. Stevens, of Ore gon, In relation to the Indian hostilities near Pu get's Sound., i Spesking of Gov.' Stevens and Gov. Curray, Gen. Wool says, in a dispatch to this Government- "These Governors appear to be running a race as to who can go deepest into the pubho treasury. In the dense forests, of Puget's Sound another Florida war can easily be earned on at the expense of some 20 to 830,000: the same will apply to the mountain region of Puget's Sound and the valley. I have no doubt that I could settle the contest in a short time, if the Governors would withdraw from the contest." ; Stevens charges Wool with a neglect and refu. al -to send -troops ftOHepTolectlon of himself and the settlers on several occasions, and asks for SO investigation The store ship Illinois brought 43 cases of silk goods from: Canton via.

Years of patient investigation into the laws of human physiology which control our bodies in health and when diseased, led to the invention and preparation of the world-renowned Hollo WAV's Pills and Ointment. Nearly, if not quite half of the human race have taken bit medicines! His name is as universally known over the globe as that of Alexander, Napoleon, or Washington, when in the height of their ambitious career. If they conquered nations in the field of battle. Professor Holloway has, with no weapon but that of science, conquered Disease in all its forms. His meritorious career is bounded by no imaginary lines of latitude and longitude short of those marking the confines of civilization it self. No isolated country or nation was suffi ciently extensive for the operation of his enter prising and gigantic intellect. Wherever dis ease has a residence, there he penetrated with hid medicines, and left an enviable and endur ing reputation. After enlightening Europe, hit fame spread over Asia and the civilised portion fllAfrin . Hat-Hy Pixd ta Amerie. H has translated the cures he has performed and the virtues of his medicines into as many lan guages as the missionaries have the Bible. Gov ernments, otherwise the most despotic, have been forced by the great value of his medicines, and their great popularity with the people, to remove antiquated and time-honored restrictions upon the. introcuctioh of foreign medicines, and open their custom houses to a free intioduction of the Pills and Ointment of this distinguished man Empires and kingdoms removed the barriers of ages against the introduction and sale of propri etary or patent medicines, and freely permitted Holloway's medicines to become the physician of the masses.
