EVENING STAR , WASHINGTON CITY: FRIDAY J?f 12, INT. SriRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Jmielliftnc0r publishes a translation of a Costa Rican proclamation announcing the termination of the filibuster war in Nicaragua, the pointe of which it sums up as follows. Vii: " President Mora, of Costa Rica, has issued a proclamation announcing the close of the war and <Wlaring that there are no longer any filibusters in Nicaragua. He advises, however, that the people remain armed, so as to meet the future with confidence, and invokes their ireneroaltv their good citirenship. and "pontaneouscontribu tion* to par ' thoee braves who haveso heroically earned their pay/"' ueroic*iiy The UutoH urges Congress to give efficient military protection to the overland mail to Cali fornia. and publishes tk communication to the iitne end, which recommends a mounted force for the purpose, to be modeled after the plan of the French Zouaves. It strike* us that the plan urged in Congress, if we remember correctly, two or three years ago, will prove quite as efficient and far less ex pensive. That is, to accord to whoever may eon tract for the transportation of the overland mail the right of preemption to a considerable body of land?say three or foursections?around ea?ih of their sUtions or starting places, which must necessarily be located within some thirty miles of each other, on condition that they cause them to be settled up iu a given time. A set tlement of a dozen American families every thirty miles along the route, and the constant passing and repaying of the immense stream of emigration and returning parties that will ne cessarily seek the route for proUc ion?which will be so great that every emigrant party will constantly be in sight of others in advance of and behind it?will form the best conceivable protection from the savages throughout the whole route. The business of cutting and cur prairie hay, rearing beef and raising vege tables, and otherwise providing for the necessi ties of the emigrants and their stock, will fur nish a living for some twenty or thirty able bodied frontiermen at each station. There are men who. though they will not enter the regular service, will at any moment shoulder the rifle and accord more effectual protection than the whole infantry of the army cyuld afford under similar circumstances One or two com panies or battalions of dragoons (regulars) to act as patrols, passing constantly over the route, or acting where their presence may be particular ly needed for the time being, will complete a system of protection for the route which wc be lieve will cost the treasury not a tithe of the expense of any other plan conceivable, and at the same time afford far more security to the contractors and emigration than by any other plan we have so far seen explained in print. NOTES BY THE WAY. [Editorial Correspondenre 0/ The Sftr.J ? TEAHI5G OX THX ROAD?PKXXKD BV STtAVf. JrxE 6. 1So7. I closed my last while " speculating" (that's 'hs term in the West,) over the want of water in this vast prairie, over which the locomotive is drawing me. which by the by extends with few intervals of timber and broken ground the whole length of this vast State. Just now their cattle look admirably; for all the water-holes are full, and the spring grass has not com menced to wither under the scorching rays of the summer sun. In two months, however, all the cattle of four-fifths of all the farmers on the line of this road must necessarily depend on being watered from wells: as they (the cattle) must bo thus provided for since the prairie is chequered with fences in all directions. Ten years ago cattle were marked and branded, and tnrned loose here, to be penned only twice a year, as twenty years ago through out all Texas No fences then prevented them from getting to water and grass wherever they knew well both were to be had. Now. every man must keep his stock on his own land for the most part, and must provide water for them throughout the droughts of summer; al ways much more severely felt on the prairie ttian any where else. Here they resort to wells. Yet I have not so far seen what seemed to me to be a sufficient supply of wells for a farm destitute of any other facilities for obtain ing water That is, fur such itocks as such farms should keep. Labor and the expendi ture of myiey is evidently avoided for any and every thing but raising crops of wheat and corn. Families, cultivating perhaps five hundred acres of this so fruitful soiJ, live in shanties costing probably not over two hundred dollars, the price of the ?? cullings" out of which most of them are knocked up being perhsps $25 per thousand at the spot where the shanty is raised. Not a tree casts shade over one in ten of them, and their out buildings with few exceptions, are almost as muah behind their shanty dwellings, in oomfort for stock, as their shanty dwellings are behind the houses in which farmers live, east of the Alleghai.ies. Cnder such circumstances I am not surprised thai one does not see a good well in every field of the Illinois farm not on runmrg water, as there should he; though I hear that throughout the State a fair supply of water is obtainable at from ten to thirty feet from the earth', surface. In no other country in the world will windmills an,wer so uniform ly and ?rely for power with which to raise water. Thus, for at most $100, (or a dollar per acre.) can an ample supply be raised for any number ol cattle a hundred acre field of this delta will graie at any season of the year. One dollar per acre as an investment for a sure and ample supply of this necessary, with at most, six cents per acre per annum to keep it up. is a mere bagatelle I must do these peo J?. the justice to write, that after getting in their first crop and fencing it. tbey nearly all of in7 T 1? <* ?? orchard ?nd a few shade trees If they will next turn wVld at,eKtiOD t0 we,,-diSSinK *nd wind-mill bui ding they will perform an act of substantial j?l?thropy towards their cattle, and will, at '? breaking up" plough,^UTday Xrt" tnt tim<r ?fcTbe^are large 8kimm'ng machine* to cut off the surface to a dent h .*<? *cn,De!'> ? k.i/ , UeP,h from one and a half to two inches, and a width of twenty inches, and then to turn it bottom upwards will great regularity. Five yoke of heavy 0?en art required to drag one. and its execution is frutfl three to four acres a day, depending on thc i?. dustry and skill of the driver, the strength of the team. Ac. One hand only is required who drives. A small truck on wheels at the end of the Warn, geared 00 as to regu late the depth and direction of the furrow (or rather shaving) does away with necee aity for a man to hold the handle, as in all other ploughs It is certainly the most valuable im plement conceivable for the country in which I it is used. answering its purpose perfectly. 1 Jbeee implements cost an averuge of $35, and tfceir proprietors charge per acre (for the ?ervices of driver, five yoke of oxen, and tho ) As their use is requirod but once on } I rame soil, tew farmers keep them at home. They are geared intentionally to share off the thinest shce of soil that will hold together to be turned over regularly, Ucaus* the prairie grass ZV" "" "J ?SZ Tot m a single .*a*,u. unless exposed to the sun air and rains without considerable covering of ?oil. After being once broken up, these prairies are as cultivable with an ordinary two-horse plough as light land east of the Alleganies that u iuiown the plough for a century. this Mason of the multitude of stations on this road, is in transporting new and improved agri cultural implements and lumbar, both of which are importations destined to tall well for the fu ture of the region. There wara stacks and piles of both, and the cargo of almoat every freight train we meet to-day is composed almoat exclu sively of them. In the universal use of improvad implements M well as in the improvement of everybody's stock, they are vastly ahead of our Maryland and Virginia farmers. I do not envy them their rieh soil, or even their remarkable advan tages for chequering their country with excel lent railroads, at an average coat of but $12,000 per mile, exclusive of that of the iron itself. We have our navigable rivers and turnpikes in all directions; the latter of which these people cannot have; as a stone as large as an egg is a thing not to be met in a journey of a hundred miles in some directions. But I do envy the readiness with which they avail themselves of substantial improvements In implements of hus bandry and in cattle. The breaking-up implement I describe above accomplishes for *3, what cost at least $10. ten years ago. Seed drills save all ot them a pock of wheat to the acre in sowing?no mean item with but a hnndred acres in wheat, and seed worth $1.60 per bushel; and what is of vastly more importance, they put the seed so deep in the ground (from one to two inches) as to do away with at least half the dangerfrom winter killing always incident to crops sown by hand. Besides, at least one-fourth the bad crops of small grain raised from Maine to Georgia, and from Jersey to Kansas, are attributed by their owners to somebody's bad sowing. As all grain sown by a good drill must necessarily b? well sown, of course no one in th& region now loses from that cause. My experience teaches that a good drill and a heavy iron roller, properly used, may be regarded as an insurance that the farmer will in ten years add full an average of ten per centum per annum to his crops of wheat, rye, oats. Ac., over what they (his crops) can poasibly be, without the use of theso invaluable implements. Or. in other words, they of them selves are sufficient to make the difference in the prosperity of the farmer who lives on year by year from hand to mouth and. him who an nually lays by money. W. D. W?h. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Another Mextixo Proposed.?As we anti cipated, the meeting of yesterday afternoon has already been seized on as a pretencc or justifi cation for a meeting of persons in this commu nity, whose partizanship so affects them as that they entertain more or less sympathy with tho ruffians and rowdies who came hither from Baltimore to create tho necessity for quelling their riot (on the 1st instant,) as it was quelled. We invoked all good citizcns to re mam away from the first meeting, to which we refer above, to a good end; for the attendance was very small, when it is remembered that the cause in which it was convoked has tho sympa thy of almost all in Washington who are thought ful and law-abiding citizens. We trust that those of the American party who really desiro that tho trials connected with the riots of the 1st instant which are soon to take place, shall not be conducted under an inflamed condition of popular political sentiment, will abstain from attending the proposed counter meeting. The names of those who will be found active as participators in it, will prove sufficient to satisfy all of all parties, that under whatever pretence called, its drift will be but to excite sympathy on political grounds for the partici pators in the riots who are held to answer to the law. As nothing would give us greater pain than to find any political party in this metropolis either directly or indirectly sanctioning the course of the Baltimore rowdies here, we sin cerely hope that our American Party fcllow ci'izens will not thusaid in convincing the coun try tLnt, everywhere, their organization tends to infi.ct far greater evils upon socicty than any al " U nora,ncnJ designed to eradicate bile we are without the slightest political sym pathy with them, we are certainly solicitous, fur thofair tumc of our metropolis, thnt Plug I'trlv lam shall Gnd neither direct nor indirect counten ance here on the part of persons who have any cTty 8Uke ID lbe WeU bein?of Washington ARRbsted ?Wm Biowning and Charles II. ?t> of New London, Conn., have Wen ar rested. per direction of the Commissioner of pensions, for the perpetration of frauds oil his bureau in order to obtain bounty land warrants ?for forging papers to obtain bounty land war rants. These arrests were made only after such investigation on the part of an agent of the bureau sent on from Washington, as ended in obtaining proof that rendered such a course necessary. The parties seized are now in prison, awaiting an examination before an U b. Commissioner, soon to be held. We are satis fled that tho result of their examination will consign them to a trial for the offence as charged on them by the bureau.

I now invito the especial attention of Housekeep ers to the NEW ARCTIC REFRIGERATOR, which is certainly in advanoe for the pujjK>?e of Ktepint and Cooling Meats, Milk, Bctter. Frcit, >Vin?s, Ac., of any article now before tue public. All the oompartments are guaranteed dry and con sequently free from mould, moisture and impure odor. The principle of the ARCTIC REFRIGERA TOR, is clearly this: that the air leaves tlia :oe at the temperature of 32 degrees, and falls in this oon ditien directly through the ice oox, descending until it reaches the bottom, passing thr< ti{h the opening in the centre division, then gradually expanding and ascending as it liecomes warmer until it enters the loe again at the top of the tee box, thereby causing a perpetual circulation, and no ventilation by hot ex ternal air is needed or permitted. The shelves of the ARCTIC are open work, to allow the free circulation of the air down about the sides of vessels or articles from the shelves, thus entirely surrounding them with moving currents of aold air. They open with double doors upon the front and top with lock and key to each?beiug made out of seasoned luml>er, in the very liest manner,and hand somely grained, makes a desirable pieca of Furni ture for a dining room, and have a water jar from which perfectly oold water can bo had at all tunes, without add it lonal toe. The idea that a Refrigerator must be oonstantly supplied with a current of warm air from outside, by means of a ventilator at top or back, is entirely ex ploded. Its only effect is to keep up a supply of moisture, which as it enters is conderued upon the Sjdes, and upon whatever the Refrigerator contains. We earnestly ask purchasers to examine this mat ter critically, aud to buy the l<est Refrigerator ever made, u htch is no*? other than tht Arctic. For sale only m this city, bv C.

INTERESTING TO FAMILIES. r psn?r The following extract from a New ^ ork p?t>?r cannot fail to tie interesting. In referring to J the receipts of Teas in this country for ouej year up to 30th ultimo, it says they will he 12,-1 (**iti*?i pounds short of the imports ef the year end ing J une 30,1&5C, and that "The advance in black teas. Oolongs, sinco last December, has t?een fifteen cents per pound; and Youtig Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades, have experienced an advanoe of one hundred per cent, over last aeason's closing prices. "It will thus l?e seen that the strong aad rapid advance in the tea market has fteen the result of i? short supplv aud active demand ; but whan it iaoon siderod that we may hoar at any moment of the en tire suspension of shipments at Shanghai, and. iu tact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war. ail five porta of entry in China, will probably be placed under "triot blockade, it would not be aurprisiug to see Teas ata much lusher figure than they have yet attaiued."
