Such we take to be the drift of our neighbor's long article on the ?ub ject. The same paper makes the value of the American commerce, whioh necessarily passes in and through the Gulf of Mexico annually, to bo $600,000,000, and argues to show the danger to its interests involved in according to Spain the right of search, visitation or de tention Commenting upofi a mistake made not long since by a correspondent of tha In te/hgeneer in improperly translating tha Spanish minuter of foreign affairs as having said that Mr. Soule was recalled or dismissed, wben he said Traced, the Union says oi tbdi speech of the Spanish functionary t a ?In the intimation of the Spanish minister ni the specch referred to, that an adjustment o; the Black Warrior cr.ee was declined be ranoe cur minister was not acceptable, is as in n.r.; _-:ent with his professions of devotion to ' justice' . s it is wanting in respect to our g veri ri er t, whose representative Mr. Soulc v :3.

WISHH6T0M HEWS AMD GOSSIP. TheCase of the El Dorado.?According to the promise made in yesterday's Star, we take op the questions involved in the Hi Dorado case to-day, and ask an attentive hearing for the reasons which induce as to differ, upon this subject, from both tbo Umion and the Intelligencer. Now, th? drift of the Union's quite excited remarks upon the oase If, that that this Gov ernment owes it to itself to jsmp to the con clusion that Spain deliberately committed outrages?asserted and attempted to enforoe in its most odious form the right of search? upon us The Intelligencer, on the other hand, holds that she has committed no offence whatever in forcing oar vessels to " come too" when outside of her municipal jurisdic tion. and give an account of themselves, her right to do so arisirg, aocording to tho reason ing of our neighbor, from the fact that our fi libusters, despite the honest efforts of this Government, keep her Island authorities in constant dread of a piratical invasion. We have endeavored to state the positions of both these journals with clearness and can dor, and have to add that neither of them strike us as embracing correct views. While we do not think with the Union that the " bringing too" of the Ei Dorado under the circumstances was an outrage, we neverthe less regard it as a trespass; one for which it behoves Spain to make dae acknowledgments, u *? take it for granted she will do prompt Iji when the affair shall have been brought to her notice officially. In ease she assumes that her officers simply exeroised their rights, then it will assume the aspect of an out rage, not to bo repeated except at the cost of a war with us. We, at present, decline looking upon it in any such light, how ever, as It cannot be that^pain will, with her eyes open, throw Cuba away upon any such asiumption of the right to exercise police authority upon our oommerce passing through the Gulf of Mexico, but not within a marine league of her possessions there. It was as well known in Cuha as hero, that the fillibusters had arranged to leave the United States for the Island about the time the El Dorado was thus "brought to" by the firing of shots aeross her bow, consisting of fofcr vessels with 3,500 men under General Quitman. The Government of the United States by its vigilance defeated this scheme though the Islsnd authorities did their best to be prepared themselves to defeat it, in oase the authorities at W ashington should prove unable to do so. The Spanish war steamer was doubtless watching to interoept those ves sels, and arres ed the El Dorado momentarily whero her commander would have had the right to arrest any vossol sailing for the Island with filibustering intent, as a ship bent ob such an errand has no olaim to the protection of any flag. lo reduce the matter to the comprehension of all. the momentary arrest of the El Dorado was similar to a oase in whioh a sheriff, who has a warrant for A, mistaking D for him, arrests the latter, and on ascertaining that he hal got the wrong man promptly releases him with an 411 beg your pardon, sir, for the mistake I have made D, in lav, has a valid action against the sheriff for fal*e Imprison ment; bat no jury would, under auch circum stances, accord more than nominal damages. The Spanish Government will probably ex plain that the bringicg-to of the El Dorado was just such a mistake, and make the proper apology for it, whioh, it strikes us, will be all that this Government will ask in the premises, if Spain puts the affair on the ground wo have explained above. We, therefore, decline at this time to onter tain the idea that an outrage his been com mitted upon the American flag. Oa the other hand, we deny in toto the right ?1 tpain to stop onr ships, eDgaged in lawful commerce, anywhere beyond a marine league troia her possessions; which right the Intelli gencer appears to claim for her on the ground that she may thus protect herself against the possibility of the fucccisful departure of fili bustering expeui.ions from our shores. This Government has steadily and emphatically resisted tho right of visitation or searoh on the high seas, and any point on the ocean a marine league from shore is on the high sens, aoordiog to universally admitted interna tional law. Opposition to tho assertion of that right brought on the war cf 1812. We fought that war in vindication of the immunity of our vessels, engaged in lawful commerce, from any such claim of authority on the part of the national vessels of any other Power whatever, and every subsequent Amorioan Administra tion has been ready to onoounter another war in defenoe of our right to immunity as ex plained above. The history of our treaty with Britain upon the subjeot of the African slave trade, made subsequent to the war of 1813, illustrates the pertinacity with which this Government refused to consent to permit the ships of another Power to visit or search ours engaged in commeroe?not violative of international law?under any circumstances whatever. The blave trade, though illegal under the municipal (domestio) law of both England and the United States, is not contra ry to international law; and we refused flatly and positively to aocord to Biitish cruisers the right to visit and search oar ships on the slave ooast, even though there was proof positive at hand that they had slaves on board. Yet be ing sincerely desirous to break up the traffic, we stipulated to keep an American squadron of eighty guns always on the west ooast of Africa, on the look-out to visit, search, arrest and punish any American ships and crews so engaged In the case in question, having fairly stated the excuse which Spain has at hand, we have now to eay that it strikes us as impossible that this Government can rest content to sub mit to what has occurred, except the act of the Spanish cruiser be explained, as we have stated. The E! Dorado was engaged in a law ful commerce, was not an inch oat of the proper course for her voyage, as she must ne oessarily make Cape Antonio first from Aspin wall, and then take another departure for Ha vana. She had long been running precisely that route with the knowledge of the Spanish authorities, and was on her way to visit their islani with their express consent. Spain is at peace with all the world, and, therefore, oannot claim to have in this oase exercised the belligerent right, under which she nught otherwise have set up some sort of ? plea of right to asoertain the precise char acter of the Ei Dorado by compelling her to "come to. She must, therefore, either plaoe it upon on. 0f the two grounds : that of a mis tako ? *> the charaetar of the vesjel, made in - .0 night t,me, and when she had reason to expect that virtual piratea would bo in the Immediate vicinity of Capo Antonio aaking for Cuba; or on an assertion of the (to an) so | odiou rigkt of sosrah. We hare no means at hand of ascertaining I the amout of oar oommeroe which passes to ?ad fro In the vicinity of Cuba. That is, ere | we go to press to?day. It is, however, enor mous To Jeopardise its future by permitting Spain for an instant to ezeroise pelioe juris dkiion over it when more than a marine league from her coasts, under any pretence whatever, eaunot for an instant be dreamed of; as it would be equivalent to an abandon* ment of our right to navigate the Gulf of J Mexico We know tbose oa whom is at prts ent devolved the duty of protecting American rights on the high seas well enough to enable us emphatically to assure our readers, that in what may transpire between them ooneerning this affair, not a jot or title of our rights will be abated under any possible combination of eireumstances whatever; while we feel equally sore that they will voluntarily assume no posi tion upon it whioh will tend to stop Spain from accounting for the act of her cruiser upon the reasonable, and with due repara tion, satisfactory ground on whioh she can ex- j plain it as indioated above. Unfortunately, so long as she must hold the island, there is no surety |gainst the daily occurrence of similar causes of international trouble. Each succeeding day increases the oost to her of keeping Cuba, which will very soon become a tax upon her rather than a source of revenue, as affairs are now tending. It is utterly impossible that by way of insur ing Cuba to her, we ean in any way jeopardise our right of entirely unmolested navigation of the Gulf of Mexico, any and every where beyond a marine league from the coasts. Under these circumstances we, at least, enter tain hopes that it will not be very long before,, catching something of the spirit of the age she will comprehend the fact that she has all to gain by removing the daily source of ill feeling between her and ourselves?tho mo mentary danger of a collision with us, whioh ean only end in a war of great expense to her treasury, to terminate in her loss of the island without indemnification. She has all to losoby refusing to sell Cuba to us. Indeed, sho is in suring its loss to her by refusing to make some arrangement by which affairs like this of the El Dorado can be promptly adjusted. Thus we shall not be surprised to find, some fine morning, that an American squadron has been ordered down to blookado the ports of Havana and Matanzas, our Government having lost its patience through delays incident to the mode in which she now insists on settling her aimest hourly arming Cuba questions with us. A fortnight's blockade of these ports would re sult in a successful revolution throughout the island. It is indeed time that she turns over a new leaf in her Cuban policy. " Lo, the Poor Indian!"?Wo noticed the other day the condition of one of the promi nent tribes of American Indians, and their advance in Agriculture and the arts of peace. In rocurring to the subject, we are gratified to state that the policy of the country is to deal with the Indians in a conciliatory and benevolent spirit, and not to resort to bareh and summary measures, except where indis pensable as punishment for acts of violenoe and bloodshed. Such we have reason to believe is the pur pose of the President of the United States, who feels and aots up to his responsibilities as their politioal guardian. The enlightened Secretaries of Interior and War, statesmen of great experience and en larged views, have steadily pursued this policy. The former, Gov. McClelland, in his adminis tration of Indian Affairs, has recommended and urged measures of amelioration from the beginning of his ministerial career. The system he has proposed shows that the sub j?Ot has beoa anxiously considered and ex amined, with that care which marks hit administration of the multifarious concern! that come before him. He has nerer invoked the military power in the management of Indian relations, where it was possible to be avoided. The Secretary of War, too, In the adminls tration of our military affairs, has taken oare that the military arm shall not be uplifted tc strike the red man unnecessarily or wantonly. In oonoert with the Interior, Gen. Davis's policy looks to a line of proceeding in the military department that will gradually bring in the wandering tribes to specified limits, and confine them to the culture of the sail, where their ferooity may be subdued by their being taught the arts of peace, and plaoed under suoh influences aa will eventually hu manize and elevate these sons of the forest to the highest condition they are capable of at taining. ' Logfcl Fees of tho Officers of the United States Land Offices ?The following are the fees allowed by law to the United States land ofScers in the several districts for the disposal oltbe public lands. Our ootemporaries, in the Wost especially, can do nothing more likely materially to serve their readers than in re publishing them, vis: Registers and Receivers of the United States District Land Offices, except those in Califor nia, Washington and Oregon Territories, are entitled to the following fees, in addition to their regular salary and commissions. The fees to be paid by those locating lands, viz : For examining and adjudicating pro-emp tion olaims, the sum of 50 oents to each officer. For entering tho location of military land warrants undor the several laws:' For a warrant of 160 acres, $2 00 each, 94 00 44 120 ? 1 50 ?< 3 00 44 44 ? 80 " 1 00 ? 3 00 " 40 " 50 " 1 00 For entering lands undar the graduation law, or for administering oaths to applicants, they are entitled to no fee whatever. Iho Buggaboo ?We are not a little amused at the gravity with which the New Tork Herald and its kindred prints essay to 44 stuff" their readers with sweeping faleehoods con cerning Mr. John W. Fornoy, whom they ao cu*e of being engaged ia plotting and oonn ter-plotting in publio affairs in Washington, while he is in Philadelphia, where ho has been for a week past and more quietly enjoy ing himself after a very hard session's labor as Clerk of the iiouse of Representatives of the United States. This fact shows how muoh reliance is to be placed on tho thousand and one slanders ooneerning him with which unprincipled men, of too KtUe character or weight to be noticed by him, are filling the air. Those must be miserable oauses, indeed, which are only to be sustained by wholesale and systematic falsification against an indi* vidu*l gentleman, who, where ho is person-' ally known, eommands a thousand times the respect whioh is accorded by his fellow-oiti ions to his slanderers, as is so minifest la tho cue of Bennett, near whom respaetable per ?on will not even fit la n opm htwl Wide of tha Mark?Our neighbor of the Sentinel, in remarking upon the boaineM of the Pension office a day or to lince, fail that np to that time tone tlx thousand applioations for boantj landa under the law of the lait session had been filed This la a mistake; 22,090 such application* had then been re eeired. Oa the following day?yesterday? 2,500 more came to hand So, vp to thia morn ing, about 24,500 have already been dnly en tered at the Pension bureau As systematic aa mattera are managed in that bureau through the arraagementa and perapioaoitj of ita head and Mr. S Cole, ifcat functionary's chief clerk, we question whether all tha oasea to ha presented under the law in queation will be disposed of in leaa than three or four years. The State Department Building?We per oeire a paragraph in the Baltimore Sun, of thia morning, aaying that the block of six bouaee on I street, in this eity, the property of W. W Corcoran, E?q , hare been rented to the Ooverment to serve aa a State Department building until the new one ahall be ereeted. The prioe, according to thia atatemeat, is $20,000 per annnm! Thia we are aatisfied is a mistake, $20,000 would be quite a handsome prioe to pay for theee houses for the three years during which it is thought the new State Department will be in oeurse of construction. Our impreaiion is that tike archirea of the State Department will not be mored until the south wing of the new pile of public build ings shall have been completed According to the original doaigna, it waa Intended that the State Department ahall occupy that wing, and unless the plan be abaadoned, we do not, aa at present informed, comprehend the ne cecsityfor any change in the location of the State Department, until the south wing in I queation shall have been completed. The Salaries of United States Executive and Judicial Offioers?Learning that a mis apprehension exists as to the time when quar ter salaries are payable to such officers, we take occasion to say that they can, in no case, be paid before the service has been rendered and the money is legally due. It seems that some of them on the Puoifio ooast, on learning that the Government has adopted the oustom of having all their acoounta stated and ready for settlement on the last day of eaoh quarter, instead of as heretofore commencing to state them on the first -day of a new quarter and taking from one to two weeka' time to get them ready to be aent out, have got it into their heads that the Treaaury officera now pay such aecounts one quarter in advanoe, and are accordingly drawing for their compensation in advance of the sorvice Of course, all such drafts are necessarily dishonored. United States Revenue Marine Officers De tached and Ordered.?Capt. Sands, U. S R M , has been detached from the command of the U. S. Revenue Cutter Jas. C. Dobbin, now on the Wilmington, N.
