" "T News rRou thk Isthvctr. The Navy De pirtmrnt ha* dispatches from Commander H'?IF, the senior officcr in coi^tand of the I ictfie Squadron, now at Panama. 16lh ultimo Commodore Mervine sailed on the 3d of Au gust with the Independence for San Francisco, The Decatur (sloop-of-war) Commander That cher, reachcd Panama on the 5th of August from San Juan del Sur, having on board twenty five filibusters brought from Nicaragua, in .v destitute and desperate condition, mostly from their wounds. Twelve of them had been trans ferred to the John Adams, and five had been forwarded (gratuitously) to New Orleans, per the steamship John L. Stephens. The names of the twe.oty-five are as follows : Surgeons R. T. Royston and G. B Bouton ; Major Dolan ; Capts West and Rayburn ; Pri vates Cole. Burns, Boyle, Donabo, Dewett, Graham, Green, Clark, McCail, Cason, Madi son. Fizzcll, Goss. Amoroke, Langerford. Kipp, Sigimound. Ingraham and Forbes. The most important information in these dis patches is Commander Thatcher's report of hi* interview with Gen. Mora ooncerning the al leged forcible detention of Americans on the Isthmus, by Costa Rica. This refers to the case of the onginrers, fire men. Ac., of the river and lake steamers, alleged to have been forced by the Costa Rican author ities to work the abovo steamers without pay. and otherwise ill used. Mora denied the storf froinjbcginniug to end; insisting that all so em ployed had agreed voluntarily to do the work and been paid according to agreement; thai only one asked his discharge without getting it promptly?the engineer of the Virgin steamei ? who was not permitted to loave tho country by way of Sau Juan, as he desired, only beaause his treachery was feared. He was offered pitss ports, and of course a disoharge, if he would take a different route. Tiie Camels.?Tho War Department has re ceived an interesting report from Mr. E. F Beale, the Superintendent of the expedition to construct the wagon road from Fort Defiance, dated El Paso, July 21th. Mr. B. writes in glowing terms of the success of the camel ex periment. The War Department furnished him with some of those animals (only three of which were males) to he used as beasts of burden?he loaded them with 700 pounds rach, of provender for the mules. They bore the journey across the plains?eating little but bushes, preferring to browse un (htm to grazing on the best grass far better than, the mules of the expedition. They suffered much less than the mules from the usual casualties of such a journey?sore backs, lame feet. Ao. He conceives it far easier to manage a train of twenty camels than one of five mules, ex plaining that the excellence of the temper of the former, their entire tractability, greater capacity for bearing burdens and going without water, and their preference for food on which any other animal* would starve, make them valuable for transportation on the prairies. Every unshod beast of the expedition but the camels, reached El Paso lame, while not one of them was lamed in the least. On the whole, this report is of much import ance. insomuch as it embraces the result of the first long and really practical business trial of the adaptability of the camel as a beast of bur den on the plains of the (ireat West. Parso* Bkowxlow ix a New Character.? Parson Brownlow. so famous for never before having uttered a word of aught but abuse in his newspaper, of any Democrat, has at length relented, and actually approves an act of the Postmaster General, half promising to go the whole figure in the support of his administra tion of jiostal affairs! We presume that Brown low has showered as much of his so-character istic dirty abuse upon the Postmaster General uidivi'lually, as on any other man living, except ancient competitor. Andrew Johnson. To lind him thu? changing his tune concerning a Democrat holding so distinguished a position as Aaron V. Brown, argues either that he has entirely changed his nature, or that the Post master General is remarkably fortunate in the administration of the patronage of his Depart ment He (Brownlow) says: The citizen* of our town, and many citizen* of the county, are aware of achange in our post otii'.e Mr. Earnest, the Democratic occupant. Las been removed.and Capt. Harris, also a Democrat, Las I Wen apt otnttd. Heretofore we have made no men tion of tt.e In alluding to it now. we can not aft >rd to play the dt-mugo^ue, by appealing to the friends of Mr. Earnest, and seeking to array them against the administration. This i? too small a for us to play at. While we have nothing to say against .Mr. Ear nest, a sense of justice requires us to state, that no man in the Democratic ranks, in Knox county, would be as acceptable to all parties as Capt Oeorge W Harris. While he i.s a decided Dem ount, and a consistent one, he is regarded as an honest luan. lie is attentive to business, and he is accommodating And he is not the inan to re tain in the office any deputy who is not ac ceptable to the people. It, t lit re tore, Aaron V. Brown makes no greater blunder than he made iu this chi)iiu?, his administration will leceive our un qualified approval. We shall regret to see the po.-t i-flb e removed from where It is. because it is in the be,t locality for all parties th.U van ?>? lotuid in the city. The Coi.orai>o Expedition.?Tho following persons have received appointments upon the scientific party attached to the expedition, un der the command of Lieut Ives, tor the explo ration of the Colorado river: Dr. J S. Newberry, of Ohio, physician and geologist ; II IJ. Molhausen, of Prussia, natu ralist, (the latter was a pupil of llaron Hum boldt;) F. W. Egb-ff.-teiii, of ihc District of Co lumbia, artist and tojiographer ; Paul II. Tay lor. of Richmond, and Charles Booker, Hamp ton. Ya , assistant surveyors. Lieut. Ives, with a portion of the command, will depart for San Francisco in the steamer of the 3th instant, and proceed at onco to thtiGulf of California to commence operations. The Nebraska Wagon-road Expedition.? The Interior Department has received an inter esting report from Mr. Sites, the superinten dent of the expedition to construct the proposed wagon road from the Platte river to L'Eau qui C^urt, the second division of the work, the find having been reported on some time since. It conceives that an eligible route cannot be ob t uned from Agoway Creek to L'Eau qui Courfj the country along that proposed line being very broken and much washed, and intersected with deep ravines and abrupt ridges. The Dacotah City route, however, proved available. The superintendent, after giving a minute account of its features of importance and interest, says : ? ?' The route from the Middle Row to the head of Agoway Valley, about twelve miles, was not entirely satisfactory to me; and I am confident, when we come to m:ike a more critical examina tion. we shall find a more direct and feasible route I for the location of the road. With this exception, f oin the character of the country, the compa-a tively few bridge* to construct, the feasibility of a good road without grading, and being almost direct. I cannot hesitate respectfully to recom mend the location of the road upon or near the route passed over from Nebraska to Dacotah city. The gnat advantage of this route, iu addition to th<i above considerations, is In the fact that at b ast ei-iht-tenths of the route passed o er a di? t let of couutry in the immediate vicinity of which the lands arew.-ll adapted to farming pur poses The valleys iijsin the whole route are not only Iwuutifnl, but, receiving as they do the washings from the surrounding high lands, they a.e composed at a rich loamy soil, and will yield the most abundant harvest to the husbandman While the timber is scarce, 1 think, bv econo mizing. sufficient can be found upon the Missouri j bottom, and in the gulches leading up into the Missouri and the small trlbntarlea.Tor all actual purposes." ? _ The Right or Expatriation?The Attor ney <?eaeral, in a recent official opinion, thus lay? down the law as to the right of a citizen of th? United States to expatriate himself, re nouncing hi# allegiance to our Government. The Attorney General says : " Th?;re i* no statute or other law of the lifted St.ilea which prevents either a native or natorai ized oftlzen from severing his political connec tion w.lh lhl? Government, if he sees proper to do no, in tlme?f neace, and for a purpose not di rectly injurious fa the interests of thec??itry. There is no mode ?f renunciation prescribed, in my opinion, if he emigrates, carries his t.imlly and elteets with him, manifests a plain intention not to return, takes up his permanent residence abroad, and assumes the obligation of a subject to a foreign government, this would imply a dis solution of his previous relations with the'United States; and 1 do not think we could or would after wards claim from him any of the duties of a citizen. At all events, the fact of renunciation is to l>e established, like other facts for which there is no prescribed form of proof, by any evidence which will convince the judgment." John Thompson.?The New York corres pondent of the Charleston Courier explains in detail the circumstances of the pending prose cution against this noted Wall street broker for fraud, as follows : " As I predicted, John Thompson does not seem to get over his difficulties as easily as did his friend Jacob Little. Jacob is back at the Board of Brokers speculating as freely as ever, while John is under arrest at the suit of the Metropoli tan Bank. "Hie Metropolitan Bank is the re deemer of the bills of nearly all the Banks in this and of one or two other states. A few Banks prefer to have Thompson act iu that capacity for them; so he takes up all the bills of nis out of town Banks, which the Metropolitan and Ameri can Exchange Banks happen to receive. The davhefailed, Thompson received 9 l'J.500of these bills from the Metropolitan and jjav? his check for the amount due on the American Exchange. This check the American Exchange refused to certify. TUe Metropolitan then demanded of Thompson to make good the check, or else return the bills. lie could do neither; so the Bank says it looked very much like an attempt at fraud, Thompson knowing he had no money in the Bank against which he drew his check. "What gives a dark coloring to ThompKon's case, is that for other checks he gave out, he re turned the values on which he exchanged for them. The difficulty at best is a personal one. The Metropolitan Bank cut into the business of all the brokers of uncurrent money, and Thomp son being the largest, it afl'ccted 'him most. Of course his feeling* toward** that institution are none of the most kindly. The public ? annot but I sympathize with the Bank. As long a? the Banks ia the country, which will have their bills circu lated in the city, are sound and safe, the Metro politan takes care ef them, while Thompson or anv of tliw other brokers can fail when they please, to att'ect any particular purpose which thev mav d-sire."' ??- T' ' The Kanawha Bank op Virginia.?Thojc who belicvo tho story that the reason fjrdii crediting this baDk in New York was that it merely failed to tuuka arrangements for the re demption of its circulation in that city, are im posed upon most cgregiously. The ttuth is, its affairs are believed to be sadly mixed up with thoso of the hurstcdOhio Life and Trust (specu lating) Company, which, ere failing tho other day, scattered enormous <|uantities of that bank's issues, more esjiecially in Cincinnati, right and left. With men who have money to lose, this fact id reason enough, in all con* science, for Tefu&ing to take its notes just now.

Foreign News by the Vanderbill and the Asia. There were buyers In London on the '21st ult., of the ?1,000 shares of the Atlantic. Telegraph Company at X'JOO discount. It appears that the company are now considering whether they shall renew the attempt in October, which Is often a Juiet month on the Atlantic, or wait till next uly. and meanwhile accept one of the offers which are understood to have been made for th" purchase of a cable with a view to its being ap plied to a communication with India. Charles T. Bright, the engineer of the Atlantic Telegraph Company, has made no official report of the late unsuccessful attempt to lay down t>)e cable across the Atlantic ocean. He says that the origin of the accident was no doubt the amount of retarding strain put upon the cable, but had the machine been pron?;rlv manipulated at the time H rould not possibly have taken plarc. t A large portion of the lost cable, he thinks, miry be recovered at a small cost. Expressing every confidence In the ultimate success of the under taking he sees clearly how every difficulty which has presented itself in this voyage can l>e effectu ally dealt with in the next. The cable lias l?een laid at the expected rate in the great depths; its electrical working through the entire length has been mo?t satisfactorily accomplished, whilv the portion laid actually improved in efficiency by being submerged, frojn the low temperature of the water, and the clo& compression of tH&tex ture of the gutta percha.
