to be prepared in case the squadron should appear
at night. One million of soldiers are ready and at
hand. The coast is all set with guns, while in the
bay of Jeddo, vwhere the fleet is expected, there are
countless war junks, and the whole bay is surround

find the Japanese much better soldiers than Ihey.

Hero is the positive assertion that the Clayton-
Bulwer treaty caused England to retrace her steps.
We positively deny tliatEngland has ever done any
such thing, and declare, that so far as we are ad
vised, the very reverse is the truth. So far from,
retracing her steps the following extract, published
by us on Saturday, shows that she is advancing,
and making still more aggressive strides. We quote
it again. From the New York Herald :
OUR NICARAGUA?? CORRESPONDENCE.
Important Movement of the English Government British
Honduras Eleititedto a Oniony TJie Monroe Doctrine, cr.
San Juan Del Norte, Jan. 2, 1853.
- TheBelize, or British Honduras, has been elevated
to a colony, the superintendent converted into a
Governor, and a constitution given to the people.
This province extends, almost across Vie continent, and
with Uie recently created colony of the Bay Islands,
foreshadows the sequel to the Musquito protectorate.
The famous Monroe doctrine, so exultingly pro
claimed and reiterated, seems to have been scat
tered to the four winds; for the heart of this West
ern world is occupied by the European States, and
her vessels of war are constantly hovering around
like birds of prey, chipping off a bit here and"there,
and plastering it on to. some colony or other, elon
gating a boundar' line here and seeing yonder a
forest of mahogany trees, forthwith proclaiming it
Belize acting under instructions of course.
The possessions of Great Britain in the Western
tropics seem to be increasing, and it behooves the
American Government to be vigilant, ldst'some day
they will be slut out from communication with tlie .
Pacific States at a critical moment.
It is rumored that'the Central Americans have re
possessed themselves of the port of Limas, from .
which they were ejected in September, 1 Sol, .by 1J.
B. M. schooner Bermuda, nowhere, and have again
hoisted the Central American flag, in the room of
the Musquito. n. l. s.
This looks like retracing with a vengeance.
"British Honduras elevated into a- colony" and ex
tended across tho contincntl And this doneT under
whig rule, and according to English construction,
without violation of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty. '
Why will our neighbor, "with such facts staring him
in the face, assert that this treaty caused England to
retrace her steps ?
'". Our neighbor also says, that Gen. Cass said of
. this. Clayton-Bulwer treaty, "that it was the -first -
instance in w)iich an American negotiator had com-r .
polled the British government to abandon aifoot of
ground." The disingenuousness of this quotation
is too palpable to deceive any but the -most prejuT
diced partisan. Gen. Cass used this approbatory
language'under.the impression that the treaty did
cause England to abandon British' Honduras, when
in fact,' this construction was negatived by Mi
"'Clayton "himself in a letter to Sir Hi L. Bulwer.
The Banner must know that Mr. Clayton expressly
states that the tijeaty, so far. from causing England
to retrace her steps, leaves the right of Great Bri
tain to BritisliHonduras untouched and unaffected. '
How disingenuous -then to quote the-lauguage of
'Gen. Cass, used iander a misapprehension and, ig-
norance of Mr. Clayton's letter to Sir nenry-Bul-
wer 1 "
We have thus shown that the Banner itself has
"used as denunciatory ( language of the British in
terference in Cuba as ever we did. We have also
'shown that tlie British government has not retraced
..its steps, but is making stilt, farther encroachments.
at' the Belize. We have also shown the approval of
the Clayton-Bulwer treaty by General Cass, was
made under a bolief into which Mr. Clayton de
ceived the Senate; that it denied to England the ti
tle to British Honduras which was not the fact, and
that consequently tlie approval is void and inappli
cable. What hail the Banner now to say? What
new defence can it make ?

"Some days since in the National House of .Rep

Exckange. For the past three days there has been but
littb movement in the market for bills on England. The
offerings have been bv no means heavy, althouirh nuite
ample for the very moderale inquiry. Prices may also be-
said to be somewhat more favorable to the purchaser. Francs
have been more sought after, but the supply is caual to the
demand. Billson theNorth, both on timoalid at sight, have
been, and are still, in better lequcsf. and prices have" im-
proved, as will be seen by our figures. Wequofc Sterling

In this carefully prepared Volume, we have an importai,t
contribution to rhetorical literature. Contain in the si eoth-
es of the great British orators which are regarded as t
master pieces of their respsctive authors a memoir of c..ch
orator, showing the leading twents of Ids public life, and tho
distinctive characteristics of his oratory an histoncal intro
duction tocach of his Sjweches explaining the circumstances
of the case, the states of the parties and the exact point at is
sue an analysis of the longer speeches in side notes aud a
large body of critical and explanatory notes, together w.th
translations of the passages quoted from foicign languages,
it leaves nothing to be desired u3 a text book of the political
andforensic eloquence of Great Britain. The copious and
valuable memoirs and notices by the editor,, makes this less
a compilation than an original work. The manner in which
he has perfdrmed his task is a model ofaccurate and thorou gh
aditorship. Ho has omitted nothing which the most exacting
Student could demand for the elucidation of the subjected m
hand, without ever being tempted to indulge in superflnnus
details. A great mass of attractive infimnation is thus r--.
aentcd,andinastyIeof singular clearness, strength aud ele
gance. It is rarely that such profound scholarship, soliud
judgment, refined tasfc and vigorous cxpiessmn, aredevv. J
to the critical preparation for the press of the standard pro
duction of other writers.
