EVENING STAR. WASHIIOTON CITY: SATURDAY >1ar 10, 1S*T. an hit of the morning rnt-:s$. The Union shows up the cowardly character ?f " Republican ' nullification, acting by indi rection, and through modes not subjcct to re view by the higher tribunal* of the country, es pecially as exemplified iu the course of the State of Massachusetts towards the Judges and the I* S Commissioners whose duty it is to enforce the provisions of the fugitive slave law The Intelligencer pays a graceful compliment t<? the inaugural message of Gov Allston of ^ath Carolina, delivered last winter, and makes it the text for a thoughtful article upon "The Lenefits of the Constitution WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The Rejection of the Treatt ?Our city readers uiuft pardon u* for so frequently recur ring to this theme, because it involves grave international consequences It is proper that the people of the I'nited .States should entertain just impressions up >n the question that has brought about the event?the rejection of the treaty?only to be obtained by a knowledge ol all the point? Hearing upon it The Govern ment of the I'nited States, more than any other, is the agent of the penple. an.I it liehuoves the latter to study clo'ely their agent s acts, par ticularly in all things materially affecting oui country's future; as, surely, u]*?n so grave a subject as the rejection by England ot a treaty with us. to the consummation of which K earnest and protracted attention has been aC' corded by the Executive and Senatorial branch e? of the Government. The newsj ?;>crs of th< day are replete with comment* upon this act o! England, most of which shed little light ujsir it; insomuch as they amount to scarcely inon than self-glorifying. English-abusing, manifest destiny essays. We, however, find in th< Journal of Comuierre published some day since, an explanation of the merits of the ques tion in issue, embracing a succinct history o nil its material points, wherein the story is toh so as to bring it within the comprehension o all; and we therefore republish it below, a being, the most useful manner in which we cai to-day employ a column of tho Star. We com mend the article to all who would master th? question in issue in a few minutes; for its state rnents are correct to the letter : '? The Bav Islaxpv?The clause in the Dalla Clarendon Treaty, as amended by tbe Unite* States Senate. declaring tbe sovereignty of tb< Republic of Honduras over tbe Bay Islands to b absolute, and free from all limitations or condi tion*. is generally supposed to tx? that portion o the treaty to which the British Government hav< taken exception, and which has caused its Una rejection. " It was certainly understood in this country and it was apparently the general impression ii Kngland. that bv the treaty negotiated last An gust between Lord Clar? iidon and Don Victoi Heiran. special Knvov ol" Hosiduras. thel{ueen o; Great Britain renounced all right?real or sup posed?to the islands of ltuatan. Bonacca, U til la Barbaret. Helene and Moxat?known as the Baj Islands?and formally reded them to tbe republic of Honduras, the Government of that State agree ing to respect the rights and possessions of th* British settlers, and giving them the option tc tiecome citizens oj Honduras, or to continue Brit ish subjects, under British protection ; and thai the ouly return or equivalent to be made by Hon duras. was a ri"ht of transit from ocean to ocean guaranteed to Great Britain and the I'nited State* and an undertaking to make a free port at eacli terminus of the proposed road This arrange ment of tbe Central American controversy, so fai as the Bav Inlands were concerned, was consid ered very "satisfactory, both in this country and in England ?'According to the strict right of the question, in the American view of the case, there was no treaty necessary to restore t* Honduras the islands which belonged to lief j.f light, which she had always claimed to be p:ii t of the teri itorv ceded to her in 1"2I when Spain abandoned all claim tu that eoantiy. ami which she had never lo?t 01 ? ed?d to any other power by conquest or treaty It wa> only necessary fot Gieat Britain to aban don territory which she had iinpropeily s?izc?j and illegaily held, ani bp rh?- nlwlirii? ol which in l-.V??two yrais after the 'he Clay ton-Bulu er treaty?she had manifestly violate*! the letter and spirit of that convention If. however, the Government ol tireat Britain thought it more consistent with the national dig nity t - our claims without any direct con cession to u.?. by separate negotiation with Hon duras s.i l.nig a I he end was accomplished, and the Island- rc-i.xed to the, r proper owner, we hail 1.0 objection to make, and oulv rejoiced that so honor able and ati?factory a means of adjust 1113 the difficulty had been devis?d. The l.ondon papers it ttie tun weie ot the S.1111C (.pinion, and thought that ? the relinquishment of some worth' less islands,' the title ol" which was more thar doubtful, was a cheap price to pay for the settle ment of a tangled and embarrassing dispute. ? The < laim that the Bav Islands were special' ly exempted from the application of the Clayton Buiwer Treaty, as 1* ing the < <*mall islands fn tin neighborhtx d of the Belize and known as Its de. pendencies,' to which it was agreed that the pro visions of the Convention should not extend, is obviously not tenabie. from the tart that the most southern part ot the Belize is more than IU) miles distant fiom the more northern part of the Bay Islands, and all doubt on the subject was remov ed by a despatch written by Sir George Grey.then Colonial Secretary, in 1-<JG.' to .Mr Cone. Agent ot the ? EaMern coast ol Cential America Commer cial and Agricultural Company,* in whirh the boundaries of the Belize are clearly defined, and which not oniv do not include the Bay Islands or any of them, but do not come within sixty miles of them in any direction. It being thus manifest that the Bay Islands do not form any part of the ?dependencies-of the Ih-lize settlement, a limit ed right to which for certain speeitted purposes was granted to Great Britain by the Crown of Spain in 17-3, and snbseq nent I v con firmed in 17^*6, as they were not specifically ceded by Spaiu at any time, and as Honduras has never conveyed them and ha* always protested against the British pretensions to their possession, it w;l* not unrea sonable that the Government of the I'nited States should consider the Royal Warrant of March ?, 1-52, creating the colotiv of the Bay Islands, a violation of the Treaty of July 4. 1-jO, by which the L nited States and Great Britain agreed never to ?? occupy, or fortify, or colonize., ot assume, or exercise any dominion over Nicaragua, Costa Rica, or the .Mosquito Coast, t>r n?y j"irt nf Cen tral America ' * To give the toomtnal sovereignty of the islands to Honduras while Great Britaiu ieservcs a pro tecting power over the colony ami dictates the aature 01 the institutions which Honduras is to establish, amounts practically to uo cession at all. and is open to the kudc objections on the part ol this country as the pretended British sovereignty by virtue of <" lonel M< Donald's seizure of the islands. If it be adiuith d that Honduras Isen titled tu the }> of the islands.?that th?-y are and always have tieen geographically and politically attached to Honduras.?what possible fight can l?reat Britaiu have to make- l?er al*an don merit to the lawful owner of that hi which she never had any right, the ground ror inteif.*ii?,r with the internal attaint of an independent Stat?? and dictating how the rest^rea territory should I* governed ' At all ev?*i*. how can Great Brit ain expect that the I'nited States will join in the interference, and participate in the dictation ? If Honduras thi?'*> proper to exclude negro slavery from iluatan and the other islands on lier coast W'.. tave no disposition to disapprove her decision' Slid no right to iute.fere; and if, on the other hand, she thinks It conducive to her Interest* to establish iM-jf.u servitude, neither the I'nited States nor Great Britain ba* any power to prevent her. without an unwarrantable violation of her indejieiidence as a sovereign State. ? *? If the alleged cause ol the rejection of the Treaty by the British (iovernment prove to be cornt t we may regret that the controversy be tween the two coiuitries is still unsettled, and that four )ears have lieen spent in fruitless nego tiation ; but our Government are free from all re proach a* being in any way accountable for the failure, either from want of good faith and a sin ?ere anxiety to adjust tlie difficulty in a manner satisfactory to all parties, or from a too unyielding adherence to their own views and opinions."

Pennsylvania Politics ?The canvass in Pennsylvania, in view of their approaching State election, is becoming very animated, sc far as the newspapers of the State are concern eJ A point sought to be achieved by the oppo sition is to change the animus of the great iron interest of the Commonwealth, which for somt time has hecn gradually concentrating in favoi <>f the Democratic party, notwithstanding th* determination of so large a majority of its rep resentntives in Congress not to favor the doc trine of "protection7' by duties on imports which up to very recently has been rogarde^ by the inn manufacturers as their only salva tion. The adoption by the last national ad ministration of the policy of substituting iroi for wood, stone and brick in the constructioi of Government buildings, wherever that cai be done economically and successfully, bavin; proved an industrial triumph, is opening th< eyes of the iron masters to the fact that the fu turc greater demand for their staple than here tofore. to grow out of this new application of it is to afford them ere long more re i ible and sat istactory protection than they can | o-sibly hop' tor from politics?Congressional legislation, ii the present temper of society the world over upon the question of direct ''protection'' by ai import duty. On the democratic side, the journals arc rc publishing an article from the New York Dail\ New*, embracing statistics in support of thi theory advanced by the Senate's Committee 01 I Manufactures in a report during the last ses sion, wherein the doctrine referred to abov was duly enforced. In this article it is madi very plain that the expansion of the iron mar ket consequent upon this new extensive appli cation of the material for business purpose must eventually give to the American manu facturers the monopoly of the internationa traffic. Assuming this theory as the basis o its remarks, the Newt proceeds to show by ai estimate of the future by the past, that th< commerce in iron must, in the almost iminediati future, become the great element of the com mercial wealth and of the moral anl jo'.itira power of natious. and that consequently it monopoly by the United States must rende , j ours the dominant commercial and politica s J power of the world. While we do not agre< ' that iron can ever become of the internationa r | importance?commercial or political?thatot ton is and will continue to be. we see no rea son to doubt the soundness of this iron theorj to a considerable extent. But the Pennsylva nia journals to which we refer claim tha the speedy realization of the results thus fore shadowed, will be wholly due to the am liberal policy of the late Democratic Adminis tration in encouraging by its sanction and co operation the now application of iron to build ing purposes; ami. that in addition to this th< extensive national consumption of iron in pub lie buildings has. iu effect, amounted to a sub stantial protection of the domestic product This is the true line of argument as well a: a description of ?? protection ' to the propriety of which wo ?ubscril>c, and we hope to Fee i pursued by the Democratic journals througbou the State, in view <?f the importance of the np proaching State election It is perfect!}* legiti mate and truthful. We are aware that th* mere politician will fail to discover the potency of this argument in controling the results uf ai election. But it must be borne in mind that ti the mighty iron iuterest, which furnishes breat for s??me MUMM) votes, and holds now. as it eve has, the balance of power between the partie in that State, these arguments are far more per i I suasive than any merely sectional or partisai appeals that can be made Indeed, we havi every reason to believe that these considera twins went far towards securing to the Demo cratic nominee, in November last, the votes o the iron interest. formerly given to the ole Whig party. This popular movement among the iron man ufacturers. which has operated so advantageous ly to the Democratic party, if we remerabei correetly. was initiated by Mr. K. Harmon, no* of Washington, but formerly from Pennsylva nia. We know that he labored almost inces jantly during the last two or three years, t< induce them to sustain and appreciate the iin porta nee of this preference of iron material bj tha National Government, and to consent to ac cept it as a substitute for a high tariff. Th< energy, perseverance and ability displayed by him in the performance of this task deserved and commanded success. Wc were personally C ignizant of his efforts first to bring about the extensive use of iron in Government buildings and, subsequently, to make the iron masters ol Pennsylvania comprehend that their best pos siblc and most reliable protection" in future is to be in the so greatly extended demand foi their staple to grow out of its general use foi building purposes; the economy and propriety of which the Treasury Department of this Gov eminent h:is already demonstrated, to the com prehension of all extensively engaged in build ing. This gentleman has it in his power to verj essentially aid the Democratic party in the ap proaching election, from his acquaintance and influence with the leaders of this interest, and from his position as the successful manager of one of the nioet important measures for their advantage ever adopted by the National Gov ernment; and we doubt not in the approaching flection he will do his best in lavor of the Dem ocratic cause.
