no such construction was possible. The treatv was ratified
with that understanding. It came back from England with
instructions to secure the construction excepting: Honduras.
While this proposition for construction was pending between
the negotiators, Clayton called on Kingpcrsonally and asked
whether he should return it to the Senate. King teplied,
f 'Dismiss it. The Senate never mil ratify it If sent back
iiie whole treaty will be rejected." Clayton assured him he
would dismiss if, and King supposed it had been dismissed,
until the correspondence came m last week.
It will be remembered tliat England, under a very old
treaty with Spain, had a right to cut logwood at Honduras
and the dependent islands. When Cass called oil King last

The Caloric Power. As nollced in our tele
graphic dispatches yesterday, the second trial of the
caloric ship was regarded as eminently successful.
The Tew York Express, in referring to the first
trial, sums up as follows a few of the advantages
Avhich caloric will be found to have over steam.
Should the caloric ship ej:periment be finally
stamped with complete success:
"1. The. caloric engine burns about one tenth as
much fuel as a steam engine; hence a caloric ship
of the largest size, may circumnavigate iJie globe
without stopping to take in coal; hence, not a sail
will be seen on the ocean in fifty years after the
success of the new principal is certain; hence ma
chinery will be applied to a thousand arts which
now require manual labor; hence, the possibility of
that long desired machine plough; and hence the
coming of that good time when arduous manual
toil will absolutely cease under the sun.
2. The cost of the .caloric engine is about the
same as the steam engine, minus the cost of the
3. Only one-fourth as many engine men will be
required on board a caloric hip as are necessary
for a steamer.
4. Uo smoke whatever will issue from a caloric
furnace when anthracite coal is used, and conse
quently no huge unsightly smoke pipe will be ne
cessary, and the rigging will be as clean as that of
a sailing ship.
5. There can be no bursting or collapsing of
ooiiers, ior tne simple reason mat tnere win oe no
boilers to burst. 4The worst accident that can hap-
A- ' . "... .
pen to a eaionc engine is ior il io stop; nor is
watchfulness imperatively required, as in no case
can a dangerous accident occur.
0. Owing to the extreme simplicity of the caloric
engine me wear ana -tear win oe very slight, and
the duration of the engine proportionably long."
ly understood that the treaty did not include British Hon
duras. While Mr. King deuies positively that he ever un
derstood the treaty to admit any such rights of Giat Bri
tain in Honduras as she claims, he insists that his letter to
and conversation with Mr. Clayton referred only to this com
mercial claim to cut logwood. This, of course, all occurred
after the Senate had ratified the treaty. In confirmation of
his statement, .Mr. King refers to thacl03ing paragraph of the
same letter, viz: "Frankness becomes our government, but
you should be careful not to use any expression which would
-seem to recognize the right ,of England to any portion of
Honduras." llr. Kinir asks what this latter clause could have
.referred toA if he understood that the British claim to Hon
duras was conceded. It was this he said, the Senate perfect
ly understood, that there was no reference made in that con
nection to fhe British colony. Mr. King denounces Clayton
bitterly, and charges wrong intentions upon him. To show
that Clayton took the same view of the treaty, Mr. King re
fers to the former's letter of thcTth May, 1850, to Mr. Squier,
charge to Nicaragua, w hich declares that after exchange of
ratifications of the treaty, Great Britain would have no au
thority ot any kind in Central America.
Mr. King's friends admit that Mr. Clayton, when the trea
ty was ratified, honestly believed that it excluded Great Bri
tain; but they charge that when be negotiated the additional
article of construction, he dishonestly kept it from the Sen
ate, for fear he would lose the treaty in which lie. took so
much interest, that he laid a trap for King, in his letter of
July 4th, in which King replied as above indicated. Such
is the explanation which Senator Mason will probably
ina&c uu uenaii ui Jving.
The 'New York Tribune puts on record, with
evident satisfaction, the following facts relating. to
slavery in .New York. The law of 1841, upon which
the vote is given, is the one under which theLem
mon slaves were set free. This law was passed, it
will be noticed, by whig votes. In the Senate,
not ope democrat voted for it The entire affir
mative vote was whig, while the negative votes,
with but a single exception, were cast by demo
crats. These facts go to prove, what we have all
along asserted, and what southern whigs have now
scarcely the face to controvert, namely, that the de
mocratic party north and south, is the only natiorfal
party, and the one to which alone the south must
look for fair play and the observance of her rights.
Wherever the subject of slavery is legislated upon
at the north, the whig party will be found voting
against the interests and rights of the south, and the
democratic party to sustain them:
The work of eradicating slavery from the State
of Sew York was commenced in 1795 by John
Jay, powerfully urged lorward by Daniel D. Tomp
kins, and finally completed in 1841 under William
H. Seward. The last vestige of that Great wron"
namely, the law which gave pennission to slave
holders to hold their slaves in this State for nine
months was repealed by the legislature of that
year, as follows:
This bill came up on its final passage in the Sen

repeated motions to adjourn, to postpone, &c, the

Webster, bv Hon'. B. H. Ewixg. We have re
ceived a copy of this address. It is a thorough and
eloquent analysis of the subject it treats, and worth'
the reputation of its author. Of comse, there are
many opinions expressed in it, with reference to
which persons difthriug in political sentiment from
Mr. Webster and Mr. Ewing, would not endorse.
Col. B. F. Cheatham. We had the pleasure of
meeting on Sunday, this gentleman, who is on a
visit to his relatives in tlfecity. Capt Frank
Cheatham (for it was as such we first knew him)
has here hosts of friends who will be glad to shake
hands with the friend and rt!ier soklier of other
days, who ever was a deserved favorite with all
who knew him.
Dax Trigg On Broad Street, has a krge sup
' ply of groceries which he is selling unusually low.
We advise our country-friends to give him a call.
They will be pleased both as to prices, and the
quality of theartieles purchased from him.
