It Is stated that the adimin. istriaiUon has been advised that the real cause wihy a psaiceful settlement has not been effected already is be cause Ntoanragnia Was been uraaiblo. to raise the lnflemraMy wlthi nth three days allowed. Washington, April Zt.-qhe vents of the dlay In dtptomaJtlo olrdes here were the landing of the Brttlsih troops' at Corinto, the abartdonmerut of the town by the nartive oftldals and popu lation, nid the shrewd move of the Nlcaratruans In decJarlng Cortn'to a closed pont. The first nws of the event came In the afternoon. Dr. Guz man had been waiting several hours at the state department to see. Secre tary Oreahiam. He was In a fever of anxiety, and Jn tjis .absence of news from his own gqfveirnimeint, came to learn what the department had re ceived as to the BrlMsfti movements at Oorln'to. r At noon life minister returned to his home for lundhtvyn and found there two telegrams from his government for warded from San Jose del Bur, 'a Nl oairagua cable port abouit 215 miles south of Corimto. The flrwt telegram sbajted that the British troops had landed at Cortnto and Ohat the British flag was ftoaang over the town, which had been deserted by the Nloaraguan olltoials and the native Inhabitants. The second cablegram showed that the authorities had goneto San Juan del Sur, cutting the wires connecting the cable port with Oorlnto so that the Brltlflh forces at the latter place could not comnKumlcaite wish their home gov ernment except by sending a boat to the cable station. . The main body of Xloaraguiains who had abandoned Oo rinto had crossed the lagoon which separates the town from the mainland and had strongly entrenched them selves. . This Information was prompt ly communicated to the tate dap'art ment. The intonmlaiUon readhtng liere Is to the effeot that they Nilrjariaguans may funther isolate the British at Corlnto by burning the bridges across the la gjon setaritilng the town from the rrainland. The Btr-Uirfh position Ij said to be very bad from strategic stand point. Ths town la praclUoaHy on an isUind, being separated from the main land by a stretdh of march y ground. This Is traversed by "bridges and with out tnem Oorintto Is cut off from snore. The NHoaraguans hare retired to the ihori, end of the bridge fluid those well informed on the situation believe Chat if the British make any move ment' to cross the lagoon the bridges will be burned amd the hUtle band ot Nloaraguan troops will make a stand agakMt funtfier. encroachments. The British are evldmrtly apprehen sive of trouble on 'this score, as lndt oatied by oaiilegnams from Colon show ing that three vessels of the royal fleet, ,tfae Soverie,, Wild Swan and Satellite, have been so pjsoed as to command th town with their guns, ft it proUable that this disposition has been made so as to Insure the occupy ing forces, numbering aibout 400 armed men. from at tack from the Nioira guans, ratlier flaan fnrtrn any deliber ate purpose of booibarcErrg the town, for there is no evidence that the Brit ish desire to advance Into the Interior at present, and It was certainly not a part of the original program of op erations as made known to our got emrnent, to bombard the place. Sariously eoratorrapiated, U is a most troiiMesrHne question, and even If there is no resort to hostilities at present, It opens the prospeat of alarming events in the future, whldh may, and in fiaot are even regarded as likely, to Involve the United States directly In the affair In spite of the earnest dis position of the ailmilrulatraitlon to avoid entanglement. Thla action moans that no gooda cam now bi enter ed at Oonlnito, a port wihlch his here tofore received , over half of ,the Im ports of the country, wWhout violaltlng the naitUxnal law of Nleamaffua. The Brlitlsh may collect dutlos If' any goods enter the place, ' bat the latter would be HaiWe to selzuer the momi?nt they crossed the Brttlati lines hito the In terior. ,The flrtft effeot of tiie decree dosing the port, therefore, will prdbalily be to divert nearly all if not the eniWre Im port tnaafe of the place to San Jyan del Sur, or perhaps Realajo, a seaport near by. In' this oase he length, $ the stay of 'the British, at Corlinto piroilillen1a.tliciaJ,. condltlaiiqi, as It ' k, upon oollaatlng enousli revenue fron the customs to make good Uie lndcmni: ty demanded. But aiuntiher coneldora tton arises at this point, for our gov ernment has' been assured that the ocouijiaitilon will not bs rermanent, a.nd, indeed, the first panagrawi of the Oiayton-Btflwer treaty exiireasly pledges Great Brlteln against tie occu paition of Nlaaraguian territory. , So the problem will arise, how to collect the lnmnKy wtohln a reasoniahle time. This may te settled summarily by simply extending the occupancy and hlocklaie beyond OorOmto, so -as to li.i olude all the pacific ports of Nicara gua. From Who dtspssjUon shown by tlho NiaamaiTUiains ait pre3ent thlB can be Aone only by force, and la likely to add very' largely to the expense . In curred In the collection of the indem nity, Which ttms will surety be added bv the BraUkih to ths original sum. This course, moreowir, will seriously embarraMS t!he commerce of the Unitec! Sfcaites, and on this point Great Britain has given eecre'liairy OPsJ.'.am rt ir asaui'anices of the mianner In which the Bnltilsh may be sure of attaining their ends by a promipt dectanatihrn of war and an Invasion of Nicaragua, Involv ing the capture of the capital, Mana gua, and tiho IrrsposHtlOn upon the Nl Aanasfuans of the Bi'lUsli teiTns as tho price of peace. EUROPEAN POLITICS. . For the First Time In Years Germany and Fnan.ce are Arm-tn-Anm. Berlin, Alprll 27. The curious spec tacle of Germany arm-in-arm political ly with France and Russia In respect to the far East has completely taken 'Ihe Germans aback. Germany has never been in suoh a poaSitlrtn sln-e te war of 1870. According to trustworthy iafprmiaitlouvttie. emperor himself is re sponsible for this turn of events, and It must be admitted that he has made i score In the (tame of politics In view if the rau that France Is acting in poiyPt wlitih Germany against her nat ural Inclination. whl-h Is amply shown n the comments of the French news papers, in Whtoh dlssiDtloiJaatlon Is ex pretFed at the Frendh government In "mental? Into a combination wii'lh Ger imany. The Imiportant part wh'ch the lemperor took In bringing about this ituaiblon is quite equal to his pre vious exploits oin auitocraitio lines. Up i-o the ir&tldle of lat week Germany's roHcy was non-Intervention In the af alm of the far Fart, unless her Inter ns were directly lr.teregted, and an official Statement at the end of the pant week was to the effeot that Ger many would not interfere.
