The most conspicuous fact in connection with tho action of thu congress is that tho sub committee of thiitccn reported In favor of tho Nlcuragimn route, and that thu Panama louto, consisting of a canal u iiircau and tunnol, was utterly tinpiacticablo. In tho faco of this ver dict thu Panama routo was determined upon, and, nutmally, Admiral Amnion refused to compromise his Judgment, declining to vote, lie says that, notwithstanding tho action of th'e congress, ouo Important lesult wusreachod, and that was tlio decision of tho impractica bility of the Panama ion to, thus leaving tho wholo question of an iuteroceauio canal still undetoimiiied.
