EVENING STAR. Cyia'nt this pretty* It ha# a child-like prat tle about it, which winds upon 'be heart like the ?Cringing of pearls: SOMEBODY. Somebody's court in* somebody, Somewhere or other, to-night, Somebody's whup'ruig t? somebody, Somebody's list'iung to somebody. L nder this clear moonlight. Near the bright river's flow. Running so still and slow. Talking so soft and low. She sits with somebody. Pacing the ocean's shore. Edged by the foaming roar. Words, never breathed before, Sound sweet to somebody. Under the ma pie-tree. Ltoep though the shadow be. Plain enougu they can see Bright eyes has somebody. No one aits up to wait, Though she is out so late Ail know site's at the gste Ta'king with somebody. Tip-too to parlor door Two shadows on the floor? Moonlight reveals n.? more Susy aiid somebody. Two,sitting aide by aide, KU?t with tiif ebbing tide. ?"Thus, dearest, n?ay we glide Through life," says somebody. Somewhere, soinebodv Makes love to som?l**ly. To-night.

In this letter the Secretary, avoiding u discussion of the character of that interlude of naval history, controverts with brevity, but with much learn ing and acuteness. the validity of the claim on our Government?and in denying our national liability cites the precedent* of the bombard ment of Copenhagen by Great itritain, tho tak ing of Naples by the intrusive government of Murat,'' and other instance.* where foreign gov ernments were not held liable for private prop erty destroyed by them in operations of war. Mill, however, he indicates a sly approval of the novel prir-'iple advanced by the claiiuauts, in the satirical remark that if Great Britain shall make reparation to the citizens of other governments, whose property she destroyed in the recent bombardment of Canton, it may go far towards furnishing a precedent for the con sideration of the United States. By some means this letter, which Mr. Marcy addressed to Sartiges. the French Minister, came to the hands of Lord Napier, by whom a copy was furnished to Lord Palmers ton. and the ef fect of the perusal of it on the British Cabinet was apparent in the Parliamentary discussiou of the claims of Knglish residents in Greytown. started not by the government, be it observed, but by the opposition. In that debate it is sin gular to observe the adoption by Lord P.ilmcr aton. the Attorney General, and other officers of the administration, of the Hue of argument marked out by Secretary Miircy. in resisting the proposition of Mr. Roebuck and hi- friends, who had not enjoyed the light which Mr. Mer cy's intellect had furnished to the ministry and to the law ofli:er of the crown, who wrote an opinion in concurrence with his??Yr?r ]'or/ Pont.
