The Bight *f Search question—Again.
We publish in another column a detailed state
ment from the jmrser of the United States steam
ship Washington, in relation to the visitation and
search of that Vessel in the harbor of San Juan,
by the officers of tier Majestic Majesty's war
steamers. That statement tarnishes the basis of
several very important considerations Waring up
on oar relations both to Nicaragua and Great
Britain. It appears therefrom, that the quasi
government of Nicaragua has violated its express
treaty obligations with the United .States and its
repeated official assurances, in refusing, to the
citizens of this country, engaged in lawful com
merce, the right of transit across its territory, from
ocean to ocean. It is further apparent that. Her
Majesty’s government, under the pretext ot assist
ing Nicaragua to defend itself against lillibustcr
ing invasion, has, in plain contravention of the
Clayton-Uuhver treaty, assumed substantially a
protectorate over that country. Another, and by
no means the least important development in the
recent drama, is the practical illustration furnish
ed of the official interpretation which (treat Britain
places upon the so-called abandonment of the
right of search. Here is work for the Executive
and for Congress, if our government shall pretend
to do its duty. Neither of these three points can
escape a rigid scrutiny, or fail to provoke decis
ive action, unless we determine to surrender all
claim to the dignity of a brave and free people,
and to grant, ill advance, unlimited license, alike
to the pusillanimous and the great, to run rough
shod over tis. With regard to Nicaragua, wo
hardly know what course should be adopted. If
apology and reparation wore demanded, with any
show of earnestness, it would doubtless be imme
diately granted; to be followed by a repetition ol
the insult and annoyance whenever caprice or
English dictation should decide. The repeal ot
the neutrality laws is a matter too nearly associa
ted with the expansion of .Southern interest and
institutions for us to expect it to receive any favor
from the federal government. That measure
would soon put to final rest all such questions. In
relation to Great Britain, something must be done,
and promptly done. Perseverance in our past
and present Central American policy will, inevi
tably and speedily, place the whole of the Isthmus
under the absolute control of British influence. —
The Clayton-Bulwer treaty should bo immediate
ly abrobatqd and the Munroe doctrine distinctly
re-asserted and resolutely maintained. The faint
est shadow of a pretense by G reat Britain of a
protectorate over any portion of Central America,
should he watched and arrested, for the most or
dinary understanding cannot fail to discover to
what such allowance would lead. In respect to
the question of the right of seaneh which the re
cent outrage lias again opened, we think that
diplomacy has been exhausted. *l l I'm UnH'ilic

We invite attention to the following communi

Mr. Blanfnrd asserts that he is connected with

His testimony, therefore, is adverse to his interest,
and the law of evidence would attach great weight
to it in this account: but the well-known charac

to establish his credibilty. Knowing the facts, he
did not feel at liberty to with hold the truth,

Railroad front LaGrange to Columbus direct.
It is thought by many of our friends that a Rail
road direct from Columbus to this place would be
a very important link in the line of Railroads
between Southeastern Alabamannd Middle Geor
gia. and that it would prove a very profitable in
vestment to capitalists, and of vast benefit to the
traveling public and the country through which
it would run. The advantages of, and induce
ments lor building such a road, are prominent in
the facts which we will attempt to present to the
minds of our readers.
A road from here to Columbus would secure
much of the freight from that place to Augusta
and Charleston (which is at present secured to
the Muscogee Road.) on acount of the directness
of the route,and for the fact that it would he trans
ported in less time and at less expense. We be
lieve there are about 120,000 or 130,000 bales of
cotton sold in Columbus annually, and this road
would secure at least one half of that freight— 1
This would be quite an important item in freights
—more perhaps by double, than the amount of
that kiud of freights which now pass over the At
lanta A West Point Railroad. Thus it will be
seen that the Road would feed, to a very eonside- !
ruble extent, the Georgia and Atlanta A West
Point Railmds. and consequently it is an enter- 1
prise of the utmost importance to these two cor- :
Another item must be taken into consideration
—South eastern Alabama would send much of the ;
cotton of that section by way of Columbus, and
on through this new road to Augusta aud Charles
ton. Not only so, much of the travel which goes
from Southeastern Alabama to Charleston, Au
gusta, Tennessee, would also be secured to this
new loud. Everything taken into consideration
(though we do not profess to know much of Rail
roads ourself.) we feel confident that such a road
would not only l*e a practicable but n profitable ]
The length ot the road would not be over fifty
miles, ami would probably eost about $12.0U0 to
$15,060 per mile. It may not be improper to re
mark that some $75,000 have been pledged as
stuck in the enterprise on a former occasion, and
we feel confident that if the proper steps were ta
ken by energetie men, that the stock would be
taken‘with but little difficulty. Harris county,
would, no doubt, subscribe liberally to the enter- ,
prise, and we respectfully commend the subject to !
their serious eonsiueration. I
We shali defer any further remarks on this .
subject until we ha re more time to consider upon j
the subject, and gather such facts as may tend to
impress our citizens with the advantages of this
new enterprise. — LaGrange Reporter.
Return ofthe Steamer Washington from San Juan
CONDUCT OF BRITISH OFFICERS.
SOSPEI TEU PILLIBt’TERISG.
The purser of tho steamship M ashington fur
nishes the New York evening papers of Saturday,
with the following particulars in regard to the re
cent trip ofthe Washington to Nicaragua :
“The Washington arrived off the harbor of San
Juan del Norte, early on the morning of the 18th
ult., having experienced a heavy gale from the
south on the 15th and 16th. She was boarded
outside the harbor by a boat from the United
States frigate Savannah, aud entered the harbor
about noon, as soon as a pilot could be obtained.
“The United States men-of-war Savannah and
Jamestown, and English steam frigate Leopard
and Valorous, Sir Wm. Gore Ousley being on
board the Valorous in the harbor, Col. Childs,
the company’s agent, came on board and inform
ed us that nothing had been heard of the arrival
ofthe Hermann at San Juan del Sur, and that the
Nicaragua Government refused to permit the pas
sengers ofthe Washington to pass through the
country, alleging that the passengers by the
Washington were fillibusters connected with the
passengers on the Hermann. Mr. Childs, with
other parties connected with the company, on the
morning of our arrival, took the little steamer,
Catharine Maria, and proceeded up the river to
Granada, to consult, and, if possible, to induce the
Government to grant permission for our passen
gers to pass, if the Hermann was at San Juan del
Sur. Immediately upon our anchoring at San
Juan, we were boarded by two English officers,
with side-arms, iffe Leopard and Valorous,
inquiring in reg. .J. to the number of passengers,
cartro, &c.. wb mg to see the passenger list, ask
ing of the purser- and chief officer if the passen
gers’ were An: ricans, and if they were armed,
and if there were arms and ammunition on board
“They were told that the ship had been boarded
by an officer of the United States ship Savannah,
who would give them any information they re
quired. They replied that they were instructed to
get such information direct. They did not, how
ever, insist upon the hatches being taken off, and
left the ship rather suddenly. The same after
noon the frigate Leopard got under weigh, and
proceeded to sea under the pretence, as Captain
Wainwright said to Capt. C., that they had some
eighty on the sick list, and went to sea for their
benefit It afterwards appears she was ordered to
the mouth ofthe Colorado to intercept two hun
dred and fifty fillibusters that it was reported we
bad landed the previous night. Our boat could
not get up the San Juan on account ofthe very
low stage of water, and lmd proceeded to the
mouth of the Colorado, where she arrived at day
light next morning, just jn time to be seen by the
Leopard, that was anchored off the mouth of the
river there. Launches were immediately man
ned and chase made of our harmless little steam
er. As she had to stop after proceeding a short
distance up the river to fix some steam-pipe, the
boats came up with them in gallant style, with
howitzer and small arms pointed for an attack
upon the supposed fillibusters. After satisfying
themselves that they had been pretty cheaply
sold, they returned to their ship, and about noon
same day returned to anchorage at Grey town,
having been absent only twenty hours to restore to
health over eighty on the sick-list.
“On the evening ofthe 25th, the flagship Roa
! noke, Hag officer Mclntosh, arrived at anchorage
! outside the harbor from Aspinwail, bringing us
the sad intelligeheo that the Hermann had arriv
ed at Panama on the 7th, and proceeded to San
Francisco on the I I th. On the morning of Lie
26th, Col. Childs returned from Granada, without
accomplishing- any arrangement with the Gov
ernment. On the contrary the boat was not al
lowed to pass from San Carlos without an officer
and a file of soldiers on board. She proceeded to
Virgin Bay, the officer being instructed not to al
low the boat to land until he had ascertained
that there were no fillibusters at that point, the
Government being informed and firmly believing
that the steamer Hermann had landed several
hundred fillibusters at San Juan del Sur. A small
boat was sent on shove, and the officer, after be
ing convinced that there were no fillibusters either
there or at San Juan del Sur, the steamboat was
j permitted to land at the wharf, and an agent of
the company proceeded to San Juan del Sur, to
look after tho Hermann.
“On tho 26th, the Washington sailed for Aspin
wail, and left the latter port for New York on the
Ist inst. The railroad company and Pacific Mail
Company reduced their faro to meet the pecuniary
necessities of our passengers, which enabled 230
of them to proceed on to California by the steamer
Sonora, with what assistance the Washington was
able to furnish, leaving about 90 of the outward
passengers to return to New York, they not hav
ing means to proceed.”

Murder by a Slave.
Mr. Wiley Jenkins, an estimable citizen of Pike
county, was btutally murdered by one of his own
j slaves, on the morning-of Monday last. Quite
| early in the morning of that day Mr. Jenkins at
-1 tempted to correct a negro man, who had been in
| the family a long time, for some misdemeanor,
j when the negro seized an axe, with which he fell-
I ed his master, and struck him several blows on the
; head after he had fallen, severely fracturing his
skull, and killing him instantly. The negro fled,
j but was soon arrested, and is now awaiting the
j course of law or what is more probable, death by
Wednesday, Dec. 15.
Since the above was written we learn that the
negro manifests not only the utmost indifference
as to his fate, but glories in having committed the
brutal deed, curses his dead master, and swears
he would rejoice to do the same thing over again.
A meeting of the citizens was held yesterday
and it was determined to burn him alive, and three
o’clock this evening was appointed for the hour.

The Negroes of the Niagara. — The corres
pondent of the New York Tribune furnishes some
interesting particulars in addition to the accounts
wo have published concerning the deported Afri
cans of the Echos crew. He writes :
“Let me remark of two peculiarities I notice in
the negroes of whom I am writing, as I have not
seen a published allusion to them. Many had on
their arms a kind of circumcision mark, which
seemed to gain reverence from those who were
not thus particularized, and to denote a sort of
superiority in the tribe to which they belonged;
others possessed double rows of teeth, ranged like
galleries one behind another, an eccentricity they
effect by preventing the pulling out of their first
teeth, and by strenuously replacing them if they
do fall out. These negroes are subject to an ab
dominal disease, which is so disastrous in its na
ture, that I wonder how any of them live a month
when it attacks them, although I am informed
they linger years after its appearance.
“That the influence which the mission we have
just concluded will exercise on other nations can
not be other than advantageous and creditable to
us, has been sufficiently proved by the courteous
manner in which we have been treated by the re
presentatives of other powers during our cruise.
At Monrovia, the President of Liberia and sever
al of the most distinguished citizens of that Re
public boarded us, and gratulatod in eulogistic
terms our country for thus showing such a good
example to the world.”
Returned Passengers by the Wasington.
—The Journal of Commerce says; We under
stand that the directors of the Transit Company
have decided to dispatch a steamer to Greytown
during the present week, and another round Cape
Horn, maintaining ad interim the returned pas
sengers by the Washington. The passengers take
their disappointment quite philosophically. They
pronounce the report that they arc filibusters, to
be a malicious falsehood, and claim to be peaceful
emigrants. Few of them arc foreigners or resi
dents of this city. They fame mainly from the
rural districts and took the Nicaragua route to
California because they considered ic as offering
the best inducements. Had the Hermann been
ably have attempted to make their way across the
country in spite of opposition from the natives.
They speak well of the treatment which they have
received on the Washington, and, beforo entering
Greytown, a meeting was held on board and reso
lutions were passed highly complimenting the cap
tain and his assistants.
The French Vintage.— All France is so exul
tant over the large vintage, in such great contrast
both as to quantity and quality compared with
several previous years, that they pay very little
attention to political matters. Notwithstanding
the great abundance, the trade is exceedingly ac
tive and prices kept up. Large purchases have
been made in all the principal vineyards, and there
is even a rise in the first growths of Bordeaux and
Burgundy. The stocks of old wine being almost
exhausted, and the wine of ISSS being of a most
superior quality, people are anxious to lay it
down in their cellars, and to sell as little as pos
sible of it this year. Many of those wines which
in ordinary seasons are used only for mixing or
for distillation will this year be sold for consump
tion as superior rin ordinaire. The new wine
will take a year at least before it is fit to ship or
send out, and then probably it will require six
months before it is lit for use or for bottling, and
even then it cannot be recommended for imme
diate consumption to persons advanced in years
or of delicate stomachs. No wine is entirely di
vested of acidity till a couple of years have passed
over the cask, and afterwards until the wine has
been suffered to remain three weeks in the cellar
carefully bottled. In the United States the taste
for high Bordeaux wines is almost a,s general as
iii Great Britain. The great houses in France
now count their exports by thousands of hogs

Acidity op the Stomach and Indigestion.
—”1 can cat anything after taking your Holland
Bitters,” is a remark frequently made to us.
To persons troubled with acidity of the stom
ach, Indigestion or any disorder of tlie stomach,
we would only say try it. Its world-wide repu
tation, has been established alone by the many
wonderful cures it lias effected. When used for
dyspepsia, jaundice, liver complaint, weakness of
any kind, costiveness and piles, it should be ta
ken in small doses—say half a tea-spoonful, reg
ularly three times a day before meals.

WOOD’S HAIR RESTORATIVE.
Among all preparations for the hair that have
been introduced as infallible, none has ever given
the satisfaction or gained the popularity that
Prof. Wood’s Hair Restorative now has. llis
Restorative has passed the ordeal of innumerable
fashionable toilets, and the ladies, wherever they
have tested it,pronounce it a peerless article. They
find, where the hair is thinned, that it creates a
fresh growth—that it fully restores the vegetative
power of the roots on the denuded places, and
causes the fibres to shoot forth anew—that it dis
solves and removes dandruff, prevents gray ness,
restores the hair to its original color when gray
ness has actually supervened, gives a rich lustre,
imparts the sofness and flexibility of silk to the
hair, and keeps it always luxuriant, healthy and
in full vigor.— New York Tribune.
