oa my hands for over two yearn, and it had gut under tny Huge,
nails. 1 tried Ml the Doctors of my acquaintance and their reme
dies all failed to do any good. My Land, had got so bad I conic
.carcelv do any work with them—they would often bleed. 1 wai
told by a gentleman who bad tried the TUitr mi. on ms . one tor
s bsd esse of scratches stt J cored 1dm st twice applying It, eo I
thought 1 wool t glee It a trial. I bought a cS cti. bottle and com
menced using it, (about twelve months ago.) and used two or Utter
DotUee before I l.w t.ny improvement, but whtn I had used about
five bottles my hands became as soft p ever and as Weil as they
ever could Or, aud up to this t.me I see no sign of lit return, got
if It never duet I think It a cheap care of Tetter, only rueUMgK

• The arrest of the two OonfedeAte Commission, rs to
Eat ope—Messrs. Mason and Slidell—by Oapt Wiltes, of <
the U. H. frigate, Sen Jacinto, elicits a variety of fp'a- I
iocs and dissertations upon international law. As it it a
sutj:ot of considerable national importance, and not 1
generdly understood by the great mass of the people. 1
we sn> j jin scm» further extract# of tho views expressed
by sevral of our exciaugea. The National lateiligi n- l
oer contmtnts at some length. After nitTaticg the cir- j
cutnstanees under which the arrest was made’, it pro- I
escd< ufo'ljws: 1
• Such being ti e facia in the case,whether Oapt. WiUes '
seted with or without the orders of the national govern
ment, it remains to it quire into the grounds by .which
this proceed!: g is j osatiod in the lignt of international
law ; for, howevtr expedient may seem tho success
gained by the turret and detent ot of these Confederate
r- preaentatires, whether regarded in po;nt of political or
military etrategy, it would be dearly purchased at the
ccat of a single principle of that public morality whrs) i
rules govern, cr should govern, the conduct of civil *-d I
and Christian States in their mutual intercourse in peace I
and in war. ’
“Those, therefore, who are not already familiar with ,
principles involved in the proceeding of Cant Wiik-P, J 1
will learn with interest that it is fully justified hy the ] 1
rules of international law, as those tules have been ex- |
poundi d l>y the most illustrious British jurists and enn- I I
piled by-tbe most approved writers on the Ltws of Na- |
tiohs. bo far Irom having transcended ih" powers with
which lie wts clothed by Sic code, Capt. Wilkes did not 1
exhaust the fuil insecure of his euthority, for hu not only
had an undoubted rigut to arrest those “ embassadors ”
of tho Confederate Government, on their pastage to Eu
rope, but might have justly captured the vessel on which
they were found, and brought her into port to bo con
demned as a lawful prize."
“The points of public law involved in the case, and oil
which it turns, are as follows :
1. T. e right of visiting and srarchiog meicaant sbipi
on the high seas, whatever ba the ships, their cargo:.-,
or tboir destinations, is an incontestable right of the
lawfully commissioned cruisers of a belligerent nation.
B.jug a purrly belligerent right, essential to the capture
of enemy’s properly and the discovery of contraband of
war on board of neutral vessels, it is, from its very na
H.fl, titan. Ir.-mr.naient to a state of n*aee, but 1
licciites to each belligerent on the outbreak ol war.
2. To engage in the transportation of military per
son*, boarers of dippafehe*, and dispatches themselves,
is nf the same nature with the carrying of contraband
goods, and a vessel so engaged in the service of one
Hi<erent is tubjeot to capture at:d confiscation by the
°^T\ belligerent may lawfully arrest an ambassador of
the adverse belligerent, if found at sea in a ntutral vo*
ad on his passage, and therefore before he has arrived
u the ucntral country, or hue assumed the functions cf
his office near the government to which be is accredit'd.
But, when he ha* arrived and been admitted in his clfi
ciafrelation, ho is protected by his representative and
intern itiocai character.
4. The fact that the voyage is made to a neutral port
Joes not change tha legwt cbVTaeier of the traassutisn, ,
where contraband ftf wai—including of course military ,
persona, di-pvtches, and their bearers—is found on a
neutral vessel. ,
Thes. principles are befieved to cover completely the
ease presented by the capture ol Messrs. Mason and
"The Intelligencer then proceeds to quote at some
Vagth from Vi heaton'a "Elements of International Luw
—tiliticn ol 1855—to show that the point* above set
forth are correct. It ulso appends the exposition ol I).*.
Robert Pbiilimore, in hi* law great work entitled Com
luentaiirs on In'erna ional Law. He :s "Advocate of
hrr Maj -sit In hor office cf Admiralty as Judge of the .
Cirque Port*,”and universally approved. He rays:
Pago S6S—(Contraband ) "It is, indeed, competent
to * bdl c- ram to stop the amhawadur on hi* passage ”
T. ge 86*.—"As to carrying of military pertous in the
employ of a belligerent, or being in auy ear engaged
in his transport service, it ha* b<(gi mo*t solemnly de
cided by the tribunals of inteinational law, both in
England and the Uuited State* of North America, that
Uie.se arc act* of Hostility on the part of the heutra!
which sut ject the vehicle in which the persons are con
vened to em fi vation at the hands ol the belligereut.
Page 370._“Official communication from an official
on the affair* cf a belligerent government are such de
-patches a* prevent a hostile character in the carriers ol
them. The mischievous const quence* of such service
cannot be reu.maU'd, and rxtend far beyond the eff ct
of any contraband that can be conveyed ; for it is man
ifssl that, by the carriage of such de. patchts, tho most
important operations of a belligerent army utay be for
warded or obstructed. In general cases of contraband,
the quantity of the article carried mty be a material
circumstance, but the smallest despatch may s;rve to
turn the fortuuee of war in favor cf a particular bel
ligerent.'' , ,, ,
"The penalty is corfncatimi of the ship which con
vevs the d spitche* and of the cargo.”
The Intelligencer then remarks:
As the feregoing principles are derived wholly from
the adjudications of British Admiralty Courts, ani as ^
Capt Wilkes has exercised something lc*3 than the acope
et power vindicated for a belligerent by these rnlitg-,
r .11_:J1. ra ..nwwaa.1 that hi a mnt\r\n ron fff.iitl '
any ground for reclamations by the British government, j
which will be morn likely to oxpr.es its grateful appre- ,
ciation of the forbeararca displayed by that offic-r in j
uot capturing the vessel tourd engaged in “favoring the- I
ff-ts.ve pnjsctsof the enemy.” If the Britiuh legitt- j
recog:it; the righ; of one belligerent r.a ion to cip.urt.
on the high s-ns the embassador of another bi-lligereat I
nation, n Jorliori must they acknowledge the right of a !
sovereig' belligerent government to et /.», under similar j
uircum. auces, the envoys of a faction to which, in the |
present case, they have conceded the rights, and there- j
ore the reaptuiaibiliiii s, of beiiigerents. I
It may be proper to add that it makes no difference in |
the law of the case whether the master of a vessel be ig- |
noiant or not <J? the character of the service in which he j
„ engaged. In the present ctse, however, the master !
of the Trent must have been well aware of the charac
er borne by Messrs. Mason and Slidell, and therefore
anew that in doing a service to the Confederate bellig
erents by forwarding their envoys to Europs, be was
doing an ii jury to the government of the Ucitei Salts.
' The Boston Traveler (rep.) takes a different view. It
It is not probable that our governnmit would allow a
British war vessel to take an Irish rebel out of au Amcri
cii- vessel in wh.oh he had wken ptss*ge from New York
for Sau Franc sco. Without time to look up any prece
dent, we are inclined to believe that, according to the .
laws of nations, tho prisoners must be given up, and the 1
| »o ol the captain of the Baa Joctuto d.sawoed. But
uay rot the case of the Caroline ba applicable to this
caec ? The Engl sh then actually iuvaJed our territory,
.md cut out an American steamboat, causing her deetruo- ;
tiou and the deaths of same persons, because she had
been engaged in aiding the rebt Is in Canada ; and the j
British steamship that was taking Slid-. II aud Miron to ;
Europe, Was engaged in helping the Southern rebels.— j
Whore is the U fference l The act wa« a bold oub on the
part of the commander ol the Sao Jacinto, and wo cin
not help admiring h;a pluck, while regretting that be had
not mors prudence.

•ith them to her heart’s coutcnL
The New York Journal of Commerce says:
From thf reports received, it appears that the Trent
•eceived on beard two civilian*, special anibastadors to
Europe on an errand to procure aid for the Southern
jolligercnts, and carrying dispatches of the utmost im
portance to that belligerent in the present war. Wheth
er the Oaf-tain of the British vessel knew what he was
doing is unimportant. The law supposes that a shipmas
ter, or his owner or freighter know* his 1 idicg.ind knows
the charf.c'er of all dippitches on his ship. In the pr< -
r-nt instance there is little doubt that li e captain knew .
ibe whole story. He had been warned by his Q teen,
that if he violated the neutrality of England, by ca-rying
dispatches, military men, or otherwise serving either bel
ligerent, North or Booth, in Americs, he was liable to 1
■eiaure as a prixo by the other. He doubtless took .he !
risk, and with open eves.
If till* view of tMfcase he the correct cdc, it was a |
pure act of mercy iFHt the American commander did I
jot bring hi* whip and cargo into our ports, and con
lenin them in an Admiralty Court in America. The {
■ ght to do this, implies the right to take cut of her the j
iupatehes and their beer rs, as well as any soldiers or j

[t is purely of grace that the British merchantman lias
)ern allowed to go to England, and it Is far (roin likely
.hat E-g'aad will bother herself with any corap'aint from
icr captain, who escaped with his vesaei and cargo from
he fate of which the tjaccn’s proclamation warned him.
The New York Times reviews the subject at length,
ind concludes:
Not only then haw* the owners of tho British vessel
no ground of compiiint, Irat, on the contrary, they hate |
.very reason to be grateful to the commander of the
3an Jacinto for his lenhccy in r.o: brirging their vessel
iuto a United States port, where she might have been
eondemned and sold as a lawful prias for the fl'.grant ’
breach of neutrality, of which she had been guilty.— ;
Toere will probably bn, aa usual, a little growling and |
grumbling on the part of the English press, but wc ap
prehend that, iu view of the language of their own
-ta'esmen and judge*, and the terms of the prochma
lion of neutrality, this interruption to Messrs. M ison
and Slidell’s European tour w II not he mado matter of
complaint by tho E lglis'i government, and will not tend
in the least to diaturb the irieadly reiationa between the
two countries. *
Speaking of the incidents that tranapired when the
arrest* were made, the Washington correspondent of
the Philadelphia l’res* writes:
When fortv miiea off Mat&nzw, in the old Bahama
chancel the Trent bore in eight, and the two vessels
were soon within bailing distance. Commodore Wilkes
sent a shot across tho bows of the Ticct. To this no
attention was paid, when another was directed near the
bow. This brought tho steamer to. Lieut. Fairfax, to
whom both of the Conb derate pa a. tigers were perron
a’ly known, was sent on board in a boat, supported with
two more boat* fill d with marines. Lieut. Fairfax went
on d'-clc and called for Mea*rs. Mason and Sliicil, who
aoon appealed. Lieut. Fairfax poliuly informed them
of the object of bis mission, aid naked them to go on

commenced the battle of McCoy’* Mills.
A vcliejr was instantly opened on the enemy, who

completely by surptieo. At the first fire siverai raddle*
were implied, and Col. Crrghan fell mortally wouudrd

There are ro two opinioni tegirJiag the oratorical
power* of Col. John Cochrane. On this one piiut the
world i* unaititnonr. We do not at this moment ihit k
cf any one except Demosthenes to whom it would liauur
with a* great p leasure. We go so far as to say that, the
occasion being suitable, and the colonel in a fluent and
metaphorical mood, it would hang not only upon hi*
periods, but upon hie semi-colon* with rapture. No one
would be deterred from giving the colonel alien and
xdtniring audience by the dryness of • his topic.— .
Given a husk as # thesis, that gallant officer and off
hand speaker would clothe it with corn, and make it
murmur meliifiuously os in the days of its Julyjuifines#.
What was give* in the old days loTully, in our own baa
fallen to Cochrane.
V.e teally believe that the commander of the—(we ’
really forget thb number of h:s regiment)—would erike

-omething agricultural on which to wreuk that noble
pulmonary rage to which erstwhile Old Tammany has
.ujvt ied from the rhimnev-pot upon the roof to the in
ebriated sschcra in the Pewter Jlug, and we are sure
tbe 6tolidest assemblage of yeomen ever gathered to
gether would be moved to tears, and embrace each other
with the aflect oudte but macadamized grip of able-bod
died hear*. lie would lend weight to a topic airy aa a
gossamer, and impitt the lightness of thistle-down to a
harangue on debt currency. Such are among the sweet
and sxlutiry uses of oratory, and if anything oratorical
is to be dour, tho Colonel is the man to do it.
Bit there »re a few lersons, non-oratorical, which that
iccomplisbed gentleman and heroic officer would seem
not to lava lsaroed Eilenoe, as a hue art, baa not fall
en under his contemplations. Perhaps it is urjuat to ex
p et a man who know* so much about oratory to know
mything dlss, but really there are occasions, and John
ought to know it, upon which wor(fs are wind ; times In w
wbieb speech is pewter and s'lence golden. The colonel
can hardly be forgiven for the ignorance which the re- '
cert harangue to bis regiment at Washington implies.— •
U thia the time for talk ? Even if tbe words spoken
were doubly winged at clavicle and heel—even if they
were doit* f lathered wi.h throe, like the arrows of sun

(iteoiue, rigorous drill, and nothiug more wordy titan
the terse command echoing along the lines, are the thing!
whereof we stand in need to-day. Let os invite John’s
