S. ltland Tigre. Leon di Nicasacsa, Not. B, 1819. The official proclamation of the Governor of HonduSas, which 1 enclose to you, will give yen an insight into the character of the late outragei of the British agent*, and the commanders of the war steamers Plumper and Oorgon, upon the sovereignty of Honduju and San Salvador. The island of Tigre, you will peroeive, recently ceded by Honduras to the United States, has not leaped. Her Majesty's steamer Oorgon, on the 15th October, entered the harbor of Realijo, aoting in ooneert with Mr. Chatfield, detailed a force for the seizure of the island, of which they took possession, tearing down the U. S. flag, and elevating the British in its place, and consummating their celebration in the ame of her Majesty the Queen. A correspondence immediately followed between Mr. Stjuier and Mr. Chatfield, the former demanding the evacuation of the ltland, and the latter declining te sake any further concession than a reference of the natter to his home government. He denies tbe right ef Honduras to sell or cede away any portion of her territory, because she bas no national existence, being only a fragment of the Central American confederation, and justliies his lawlets occupation of Tigre, on the ground that it is a seizure for debt. This outrage to our flag will, doubtless, receive the prompt attention of the government. Tbe insulting proceedings against Honduras and San Salvador have awakened the proper spirit The Central American States are arming themselves to repel these aggressions. <Jen. <<uardiola. of Honduras the noblest general In Central America, has arrlv?d on tbe coast of the liulf of Amapala, and men are rallying around him. It is understood, also, that tbe State et San Salvador is rapidly raising troops. So it appears the British Charge ha* fot himself into trouble. It uppvars that his principal emand against San Salvador does not fall due till next month; and the government of that sturdy little State declines te comply with his ultimatum. It remains to D* 0<*t?U 11 D6 Will iUDUipi m ift&H |;unn?BBtuu ui buc vu* lire republic ''in behalf of her Majesty." The State* of Central America look with confidence 1o the United States to see that their rights are reepeeted The policy and trie Its of the Brlti.b agaut.s here will be fully exposed The recent ? I ur?H have roused the old national spirit, and the ouly inquiry is "now, for arma? cot men A ship load from the ( tilted State? would eel! at a handsome profit In this market. PROCLAMATIONS. INHABITANTS OF HONulTRAS : AU governments which like our own, depend exclu ivaly entiiely upon public opinion, to whom the laws are the ouly guide and polar star, always submit all j their acts to the acrutlnv of their fellow cltiznns, a nd transmit to them without delay or disgulsa the accounts Of auch affairs as materially siTect the Interests ol the ' whele body of the people. Of auoh a nature, at this (resent moment, are the events which have transpired on our Northern coast, a* alio on the Southern ooast, And wblsh his Kxcellency tV* President has commanded me to acquaint you with. On the 4th of the preseiit month, the steamer Dumper, belonging to tbe Koyal British Marine, under the ,-command of < aptalo Nolloth arrirad at Truiillo.

At the same time, tbe C oneul of Her liritamc Majesty has b ~?n informed tbat Many other hogllsh agent should unfortunately repeat any similar Injustice within tha territory of 11 ndurar. the government will feel itself obliged to oloee the ports t > the british Hag and to prohibit auy relati' ns with tbat power and its dependencies.

Above we bare given the official document* from Honduras, consisting of two proclamations explanatory of the acta perpetrated by the British, In violation of the rights of the republican people of Honduras. It will be clear enough to the reader, by the perusal of these proclamation*, that the only ostensible cause put forward by the British for aots of such wanton and unjustifiable aggression, are certain pretended claims of certain individual* made upon the government. The same cour*e ha* been puraued towards the State of San Salvador a* toward* that of Hondura*, and claim* have been hatched up againat San Salvador, In order to seize upon that country alao. The following reply to the British Consul, by the Preaident of Salvador, in answer to his complaint*, will help to show the frivolity and injuatice of tne claims set up against Salvador. It is a letter written by order of the President, in reply to one from the Consul, and is a* follow* St. Salvador, Oct. 21, 1S49. Mr. Const*!. General or Hkr Britannic Majkstv? feS.a, ?Your official cemmunication, with theacoom- ! panying document, upon the claims of British subjects Las been received?the first of said pieces in substanoe complaining aa follows:?First, that not only the government of San Salvador has answered none of the ; letters directed to it on this behalf, but has alao declar. il to Sr. ldlgora* that it would not recognize nor pay any of the olaima which have been in part already recognised and paid, by the delivery of tobacco in the pert of the Union. Secondly, that in the tame manner the effects belonging to British subjecta were illegally taken frcm the house ef hep*da and Pilona. and i that in their being claimed, the government ol Salvador evaded the claim, by saying it would make enquiries on (he subject, though it is now more than four years ago since the matter waa brought to its notice; and you add. that now the time is come to put an end J to this system of evasions and delays. Lastly, you any that an injury has been done to Sr Idigorai by the ! imprisonmi nt he has suffered, without true aud legal cause, and that a sufficient reparation Is requirel. Mr Consul, the government of Salvador has con- ! stantly occupied itaelf with attending to the continual 1 and uninterrupted olaima you have made. It has [ always manifested the best detire to arrange all the : complaint* you made in the name of British subject*. 1 at different periods. If at any time it has not Instantly replied to you as you detired, it has been either owing to the wont of sufficient ground* for answer, or beoause the importance of tbe matter required longer deliberation TIiuk It in that in thin reject you, Sir, are entirely without cause fcr jour asfertiens. If Sr. idigoras. in ?i>y of his communications addressed to yon, hait raid that the President of the State ha? reluf? d to recognize or to pay claims already recogni '.ed, he has told a notable untruth; for the President knows wtll tbat in a business ratified by both parties tbe one cannot draw Lack without the consent of the other petty Berld< a. you. sir. have received in the Union the tu 11 ia!ue of U6,0U0 dollars in tobacco, as payment iu full of this demand Therefore, the President has had CRU-e to be greatly surprised tbat a matter, once teriuicated by means ot arrangements made, should be re-produced. As to the acknowledgment and payment, which you pretend to haTe been made, of the credit for goods taken from the house of Kspada and l ilona, I haTe the honor to refer you to the opinion of four gentlemen of the law elready given, upon this Fubject, which will give you all the information you can require. It rtmains for me to reiterate to you, sir, tbat the j supreme government of the State has never received ' Sr. Idigoras as tbe official agent of Her Britannic Ma- I jesty, exercising the, right of all nations to receive and 1 not to receive foreign agents, as they may think proper. | Salvador and l ential America have never bound them- I selves to reci ive. a> British Agents, those whom tbe , Iltitlfh government may ||MM to de'iguate as snch, ' and impoce upon us. (The document then proceeds to explain the matter ; of the imprisonment of Idigoras, showing that he is a native and subject of the oountry. and was legally tried and NBVMH <>f a criminal offence, and justly sen- : tenced to imprisonment ] Besides, my government thinks, with some reason, that even It Idigoras was a Utlli'U subject, and had any claims s^slnst any In this country?and even if ha had been condemned by the courts of the country unjustly-and if he had not been punished deservedly, for a great offence committed -even then, In such a case, j It is not you, sir. the British Consul, who are legally entitled to icalst upon receiving such indemnities as ha might c!aim. As you, sir, state In yonr note, that If the** matter* are not arranged on the tarnis you require, you will j take measures to satisfy yonr demands In all the ports ot the St*te the government of Salvador formally protest* upon the spot, tbat if this is done, the u-glect to pay the $16 000 In the month of December will not be it-fault. since the ingress into the port* of the I nion Will thus be prevented. These are the term* In which the President of the State has desirtd me to reply to you, sir, and to assure you. Mr. < onsul. of the high consideration and respeot with which, lie., HAKAKL PINO.

Simply, it tfould appear, because the Hawaiian government. in the exercise of a right clearly Hi anted by Kratice by tbe treaty of 1R46. ban used the moat stringent measures in their power for thesupprea?ion of intemperance, an evil well known, and ackuowii dired to be the most destructive everywhere. and r?*r. tfoularly among Polynesians One would think a knowledge* of the mischief produced by Intoxication under their owa observation at Tahtta, would have induced the F'rench authorities to cherish, rather than outrage, the Sandwich Islands for iheir efforts to suppress it. The laws of Tahiti, at the present moment, make distilled IIjuors contraband, even to the produots of France! low, then, with what good grace can a French Consul and a French Admiral come forward to make a lemand for a reduction of duties upon the same, in adacent islands * There is too much light aad knowedge in the world, at the present day. on the subject >f temperance. There is too muoh good sense and sterlog justice in the French nation to sanction, for a moment, such inconsistency, and such an outrage upon -he moritl sense of all mankind. We hare given the foregoing cursory sketch of Sandrich islands allalrs. drawn from bookv authentic docu unit?, and other sources of iufnrmation within our each, forth" purpose of inviting the attention paiilcuarly ol our home government, and ot bespeaKing for .be islands that sympathy and countecanoc which art nuch needed at the present crisis; and we venture to mpress the hope that the republic of France will tnitantly disavow the acts of her officers In the late tranlactious, and make all the reparation wLUch the case lemands That the islands are incapable of defending themlelves against the aggressions cf the great powers, is a natter of course; that they are capable of self governumt aud ui maintaining their relations with foreign i&tlons. is abundantly proved, aud well known; that hey have Lad great obstacles to contend against, is finally true Nevertheless, they have, in a great decree. succeeded in overcoming them,' and in regard to he opposition of foreigners, we believe It baa passed iway; the existing policy has become popular, and the luthority cf the king tiruily established And, before losing, vi e cannot retrain from congratulating that goeriiUient on the firm policy It ha? pursued under the tcent troubles, and on the sympathy and good feeling rhlih have been manifested toward* them by foreigners f every nation almost without exoe.ptloa, including he French retlding at tka islands, and by most of Ante leans raiding at San Franoirco. llrrult Court?lirouKlyn.
