From th. moment that I was entrusted -wMh the portfolio of torelgn affairs, 1 conceived it my taiy to examine into all claims pending between Spain aao other Powers, in relation to injuries iajllcted upon wivate IndividosW, for the purpose of bringing them i to ? Mttlement, if such were possible, and of consolidating ?ad extending by that mean* the good friendship which STentertalned toward, us by all nation, and govern Mats. Th. not. whieh I addressed yon on th. 31st aKime in relation to th. refitting of th. Noith Carolina, la conclusive evidence of th. sentiment. and purpose Vt whieh I was actuated. Bv deeidv meditating upon th. more prominent ques tion., aad grasping them a. a whole, 1 have been led to fcalieve that w. might succeed In making some arrange ment whereby th. final settlement of them all would be ?tore promptly and efficiently secured. , ,. . The severnment* of the American Union aad that of bar Britannic Majesty, on th. 8th of February of the ?receding year, concluded a convention, the design of which was to bring to a settlement ?uch remaining .hlM., of a similar nature, which might be pending be tween then bv agreeing upon the eoUblishment of a t^ssion of arbitrator., which .houldbe.tallon.d In London, compc?ed of one delegate selectod by each of the contracting partie., and a thud one to be chosen by ?be*e two or by lot, in case of disagreement, and, by wiring full authority to this commission, todispoae of all ?actions the. existlng-these governm.nU binding beforehand to abide by and fulfil it. "i7h!2*in.r. intimation of such a system is a sufficient MMOunendation for it. applicability to all caws similar to the 4. which called forth the convention ?uud?Klto, aad such a. now are at issue between .he United States aad Spain ? claim* which have origin In private to teres t#, and in which reparation and indemnification .n demanded for injuries indicted. , . . . . But there is .till another inducement, which 1*, that Dm government of the United Stat., has, for several Bonths past, it.elf given .imilar Intimations to her Ma te nt v1. Charg. des Affaires at Washington. Accepting? therefore, these Intimations, sn.l taking as a areced?nt th. convention to which I have alluded 1 ?anally propose that we should come to some under standing whereby we might, with the same facility, dijr aooe of and set at rest all those elmms? clalms made reciprocally by th. parties, nnd upon which th. United States and Spain have insisted, and do insist, up to the *JMttisdp*lan meet, the views of the government of the United PtatM, and it will agree to the establishment at ?adrid of a mixed commission of arbitrators, having ?anal powers and under similar condition'' with those ?greed upon with England on tbfe 8th of February ,1858, I shall affix my signature to luch convention a. we may ?aa.luOe with the greater pleasure, from the belief that we shall have taken a step towards the better arrange ?Mat of our International relations.

Oct. 26. 1864. J ft* ? With reference to tbe pTopoeition eontamed in your excellency's note of the 16tn ultimo, concerning the claim- affecting private interests atlll pending be ?ween the United Btatea and Spain, it has been *ugge*t nd, by an authority which I cannot neglect, that, before oatoriag upon the consideration of that proposition, the On I ted State* ought to be informed more folly which of 6k oeo claim* It Is tha purpose of her Mi?J*aty'? govern ?seat to admit and which it will dispute. T he language of your excellence note would seem to mbraee the ease of alt the claim* for injuries done to ? private internals which have been formally presented to either go vernal eat hj.the other since the date of tbe eenvennea on claim* between the Unite* State* and Pnain, signed a* Madrid, on the 17th day of February, 1884, and which have not already been deBaltely set Med. It would seem aleo that yanr excellency is willing to yield the right which the government of h*r Majesty naay have to malataia the objection* it ha* heretofore ? 4* to the different claim* thus preoented by the gov ?maaent of the United IHatee, whether th* *am* m*j have Wen louM ia diitiact apnreciatieas of tha prin ciple# of mternatioaal law involve* to tbsae %>M claims, or oaly la dtfcreaeea of opiaionae ia the aaturo of tha fkcts, aad that toot excelleaoy ia willing to submit all these questions, whether of principles or of facta, to th? adJidicatioD of % high tribunal, or mind eonuniatioa of arbitration, to be established between Spain aad tha Uaitad States, upon tha modal of that aatabliahad be tween the United States and Great Britain, under the convention of tha 8th of February, lt>4U, her Cathelie Majesty's government binding iteelf beforehand, so far aa the He claims ara concerned, to acoept tha decision* of this tribunal aa final in every case, and carry them into full and complete execution ia tha part which cor responds to ber Majesty's government; and all this upon the role condition tbat the government of tha United States will, in like manner, agree to similar provisions as regards all tbe claims presented to its notice by that of tier Catholic Majesty since the data before referred to.

H0RVT10 J. PKBRY. To the Minister or State of her Catholic Majesty. UK. PACHKCO TO MR. PKBHY. Dfjmktiiknt or Stats, \ Palace, Oct. 30, 1854. J My Dear Kir? T have received your note of the 24th inst., in which, in referring to mine of the 18th ult., you state the manner in which you understand the propo sition to ?ubinit to the decision of a mixed commission the reclamations of private individn-iin awaiting adjust ment between the governments of Spain and the United States. 1 ccnTesH that I do not well comprehend the meaning of the first paragraph of your note, because the Minister of tbe United State* being absent from the kingdom, and the legation of that republic being in your charge, it does not occur to me tbat an opinion which may not be that of the government you represent, can possess suf ficient authority to Induce you to request explanations in regard to the proposition referred to. But, be this as it may, I find no inconvenience in giv ing tfc?m to you ia the name of her Majesty's govern ment, As you have very well understood, the said proposition embraces all claims for injuries to private individuals, presented, respectively, by elthei of tbe two governments to the other, from the date of the conven tion concluded in 1834 between Spain and the United States, until the day on which the proposed agreement may be aigned, which may not yet have been definitely adjusted. Equally correct is the deduction made by you, that if said agreement is consummated, both government! shall relinquish, by the very act of signing ft, the right they might potsess to continue to urge reparation for the claims which have been presented to them, submitting all the differences of opinion which might have arisen to the judgment of tbe mixed commission, and obliga ting themselves to accept its decisions as definitive. In fine, tho proposition contained in my note of Sep tember ICth, is based on the convention between Eng land and the United States in 1853; and the Intention of her Majesty's government is, that themixed commission which may be 'ormed for investigating and deciding npon tbe claims of privite individuals between Spain and the United States be identical in its organization, mode of procedure, and attributes, with that estaolished by ihat convention between the l; sited States and Great Britain. I avail my f elf of this occasion to renew to yon the assurance of my distinguished consideration Tour obedient, humble servant, T. F. PACHEOO. To the Charge dks Aftairkb of the United States. The New York Prohibitory Liquor BUI* [Horn the Atbany Argus, March 21.] The prohibition bill now beiore the Senate contains no less than twenty-six sections, and extends through se veral pagi's, and it is not easy by a cursory reading to understand precisely what are its provisions. It pro vide* at great length for the proceedings for enforcing the leading featured of the bill. We will endeavor to give briefly the general scope of the proposed law, when stripped of tbe details which encumber ft. 1. Liquor eball not be sold anywhere, or by anybody, except by the licensed agents, of whom thtre shall be one in each election district 2. These agents can only sell "pure and unadulterated liquor, for mechanical, cbem cal or medicinal purposes, and pure wine for sacramental purposes." Their sales must be to persons at least twenty-one years of age, and who reside in their county or some town adjoining it. 3. Liquor cannot be given away except in u dwelling bouse, not connected with a "tavern, store, grocery, shop, boarding or victualling house, or room for gamb ling, dancing or other public amusement or recreation." or except as a medicine by a practising physician, or for sicrnm<ntal purposes. [It is not clear Irom the bill that it could be given away for medicine or sacramental purposes, "except in a dwelling house."] 4. Liquor cannot, for any purpose whatever, be ' kept or depot ited in any place whatsoever," except a dwell ing (such as above described), church, or place of wor ship, for sacramental purposes, or a pliee where soma chemical, mechanical or medicinal art, requiring the use of liquor, is carried on aa a regular business, or while in transitu. [The bill allows tbe licensed agents to sell it, but It se?mi to forbid tbeir keeping it.] The above are the prohibitions of the bill against sell ing and keeping liquor, and are contained in the first section. The other sections are devoted to provisions lor detecting and punishiag violations of the first sec tion. 6. The penalties for any violation of the first Motion are: ? First olTence? Fine of $50. Second offence? Fine of 9100 and thirty days In jail. Third pUtno? Fine of $100 to $600, and three to six taoiiUis in Jail. (very subsequent offence the same. All liquor hep', by tbe offender is forfeited on conviction. 6. The search and seizure provisions are substantially as follows : ? Any magistrate of the town may, on tlie proof aptci fled in the bill, Issue a warrant to search for liquor ille gallv kept. Any place may be searched except a dwell lng house, which cannot unless the occupaut has been convicted of having sold liquor in it within a year. 'lhe owner of the liquor seized, on presenting an affi davit tbat it was not kept in violation of law, is entitled to have tbe question tried. If decided against him, or if he does not appear alter notice, the liquor Is to be de ?trojed by an officer, to whom the magistrate may issue a warrant for that purpose. Tbe foregoing are the substantial provisions of thn bill. There are a multitude of details as to the proseed ines, which we parpoaely omit in this abstract. [" lirunkeiiDess is declared a crime, punishable by a fine of ten dollars, and the offender is to be arrested, and, when lie becomes sober, examined as to where he pro cured his liquor.

The of the Board of Managare, who remained la the citj for the purpose of forming a quorum, met pursuant to adjournment, on Monday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, In the Baptist church in Second avenue, near Tenth street. The chairman being ab*?nt, the Hon. J. M. Linnard, of Philadelphia, wax called upon to preside. Prayer waa then offered ap by Rot. Mr. Weitbrook, after which Rot. 8. Dryden Phelps was elected Assistant Secretary. The Rev. Dr. Pick said that the next subject for the consideration of the Board would be in reference to the Executive Committee, whose wish it Is to preient several topics for discussion and Anal action by the Board? each topic to be disposed of without entering upon a seoond. The Board preferred to hare all before them at one*, but contented t* take up a paper relative to Councils, believing that this paper would call up no diseuasion. ^ lien i hit was disposed of Rev. Dr. Pick then read a document in reference to the missionary policy, as adopted by the Executive Com mittee, embracing: ? 1. The regime adopted for the proper preachings of ike gospel. 2. Printing and the laws and regulations of the mia i ionary press. 3. schools and school teaching, secular and theologi al. Thia point compriaed the model, design and system if missionsry schools. 4. Laborers, or all who were enaged in the missionary ? auie. This document took up nearly two hour's time in read ng it, and set forth in general the condition of tne mis icnary cause in the Burmah empire. A stricture was ndulgtd in againat the missionary printer at this station, t wss insinuated that the missionary printer wan rather ndependtnt in his action, and he is reported to have answered a complaint of the missionaries by telling them "Be would do as he pleased ; he wauld not be ruled. If the missionaries did not like hlsacllon he would re sign." The paper recommended that the printing de partment of missionary stations should be put more under the control of the mitsionary board. W ben the reading of this document was finished, the hour of adjournment had arrived. The Rev. Dr. Cone was then called upon tor prayer; alter which, the Board adjourned till 7 & o'clock in tie evening. iv?a.N<i smsrow. The session was opened in the evening by prayer, by Rev. W?. Smith, after which Dr. Poutjw asked lor post ponement of business to elect a Treasurer. Seme debate sprung upon this motion, it being con tended that the election of Treasurer was not necessary. In opposition it was shown that the constitution re ouired it. The motion to postpone business was finally carried, snd a balloting followed for Treasurer, with the following result:? Mr. Bojnton 0 Mr. Eddy 7 It was then declared that Mr. Bojnton was elected the Tressurtrof the Board. A debate then arose upon a motion to refer the paper read in the morning aession, npon the deputation to a select committee to report at the annual meeting to be held in May next, at Chicago. The Bev. Dr. Granger, Dr. Cone, Rev. Mr. Howard and Rev. Mr. Kennard, took part in a debate npen this mo tion, which was continued and closed by Bev. Dr. 0. B. Jcdd, who spoke ably and eloquently forbulf an hour, in opposition to the motion to refer ? lie contended that the Board was sufficiently well in formed upon the subject to ast immediately. That the unpleasant discussions upon specific instances, involving cases of diiobeditnce to tbe instructions of tbe Board, should not be adjourned to Chicago, nor entered upon, at any time, without rendering tbe parties accused an opportunity of being heard in their defence, either in person or by a representative The Bev. Dr. Haguk of Albany, who had the floor at the opening of the lession yesterday, proposed to read a latter wbich would occupy half an hour, from the Rev Mr. Brown, a missionary in Burmah. It was agreed to post pone the reading of this letter until 9% o'clock, on Tuesdsy morning, to which hour the meeting then ad journed. LIST DAT.

The debate then turned upon the paper of "The duties of tbe deputation," a debate that huted till tbo adjournment, at 1 o'clock P. M. During the afternoon tbe Committee on Business reported a set of resolutions approving of the paper on tba "Deputation," read the day before. Iheia resolutions were adopted. During the evening the time was taken up in a general discussion npon tbe morality of the Eastern Missiona ries. A resolution waa offered thanking God that in the Mission in tba East, only one had fallen from giace, and this one not a minister of the go-pel. This resolution whs not aeted upon The Board then, at a lata hour, adjourned tine die. The Methodist Episcopal Church. AKWrVlRBAHY OP TBI LADIES' UNION AID SOCIETY. The anniversary meeting of the above society, instltu ted for the kid of the aged and infirm member* of the chuich, was held last evening In the bailding belonging to that body, in Mulberry street, and was well attended At 8 o'clock P. M., the Per. J. B. Hag any, pastor of the choich, took the chair. The exercises commenced by the tinging of two chuich hymns by the choir, after which the Rot. Dr. Bangs opened with an impressive prayer, beseeching God's aid on the exertions of the Society, and his blessing for the Individuals of the congregation assembled. The chairman then stated tlie object of the ladies in getting up an institution which would be an asylum for the indigent members of the church, conducted on a plan similar to that in Horatio street, but built on a larger scale. Hev. Dr. Dckbin said? That nothing could appear more hopeful than the contrast bttween the treatment of the poor in heathen and Christian lands. In heathen lands there is nothing f?r the relief of the sufferer; such was developed early In the Christian dispensa tion at Jerusalem, between the Greeks and Jews relative to the care or widows. The Brit ef fort of the early church was the protection of widows; and I infer from this that tbe church is now bound to provide for this class, snd for the destitute, as ouch as they wero at tbe time the order of deacons was first ap pointed. Their care was indicated by the divine will at that early day, and the church cannot be held guiltless teforeGcd, unless she care for widows, the sged, the iiifiim, ami these of decayed health and circumstances. Ihey sre persons who arise naturally in the church, and liave reaped the promise of God by living long in the land. They won t ask, becausc they are sensitive; but they arc bcncrcd in the sight of God. The lx>rd laid that " the poor you have always with you;" but he did cot enjoin to help them, for he created the natural Im pulse In the heart of man to do so. The genius of pagan lands is to put a helpless human being oat of the way, and thus they often strsngle them; and so you may see the marked difference between the genius of Christianity and the genius of idolatiy? and I hope the genius of tbe CbrUtinn will be here to-night. Fev. I r. Bktuim addrosed the meeting. He const dprtd It a* honor to be invited to do no; on this occasion ail nect cocsld'iations were atan end. Pure and una dulterated religion was to visit tile widow and orphans in their afflictions. When the Son of God and the Horn of Mnry, hung in agony on tbe cross, and the pains of hell taught to catch hold of blm, even at thin moment be looked at the woman in ker tears at tbe foot of tbe cross. It was his widowed mother, and feeing her he forgot his pains, and regarding that and mother, he looked towards his heat beloved disciple, and said to linn, "Hon, behold thy mother," and to her, "Woman, behold thy ton " and this was the best proof he could give to John of his confldence by giving him a widow to care. The poor, now suffering with Christ, are destined to enjoy his glory with him, and the society only tike thrm until (iod sends his aigela to point the way for them to heaven. Ihe reverend gentleman then recapitulated the classes of poor for whom the new Institution was projected, and advocated its claims in his own peculiarly eloquent man ner. Reverend Pr. Porotkr, who was charged with the dnty of collection and subscription, then urged the claims of tbe ladies' project to the audienee. He said that the enterprise commenced about live years ago and had gone on since. He reviewed the history of tbe operations until the moment of tbia now urgent claim. The laliee had row invested (12.000 in lots calculated for the in tended buildings at Carmanaville, and they have at tbe isms moment sustained the Institutions under their charge. The doctor then took up a liberal subscription. He slated thst 1 lie ladies had a bails of 94,000 to begin witn. The land was unencumbered, and the new building wonld relieve nearly one hundred old persona About J1000 was required to go forward with the work, l'letigra would be taken, sod already a proposition had been made by a lady, to give $500 for the proposal building, if It were soon commenced. A former inmate bad given as much as $000. Ten gentlemtn contributed 130 each; twenty ladles gave $10 each; Henry J. Baker A Pro. gave $100; ten gentlemen gave $10 each; snd various other sums were announced, smonnMng V> over $700. Alter prayer and benediction had been pronounced, the meeting adjourned.

MONK ? MARKS T. Wednesday, March 21?6 P. M. The Btock maiket opened ud closed pretty 8 tea dy to-day. The variations in prioee were animpor tut, and the tranaactiona continue on an extendre scale. At the first board Indira* 5's declined j per cent; Canton Co., I; Pennsylvania Goal, Cleve land ud Toledo, 4. Nicaragua Transit advanced & per cent ; Hudson R. R. , j . The sal M of Indiana 5's were large, but there wu not much doing in other State securities; railroad bonds were unusually q olet this morning, bnt there waa enough doing in railroad stocks to swell the aggregate to a large amount. Nicaragua Tianait vaa in demand at the improvement The atreet is very abort of this fanoy, and theeff.rta recently made to depress the maiket value have not been aucceaafaL The injunction recently obtained will be argned on Monday, when we 'hall no doubt have aome interesting develope. meats. The sodden start in Hndaon River Railroad is somewhat extraordinary jnst at thia time. The rcaoaption of navigation on the river moat tend to a reduction of receipts on the road, and we do not know of ray improvement in ita Internal finance sofGjient to warrant the rapid advance in price. A strong party ef purchasers haa evidently taken it in hand, and may carry it np to mnch higher pointa; bnt it ia utterly ont of the question to sustain any ad vance In any stock not based upon actual merits, piesent or prospective. Reading ia one of the firm, est snd .most active railroad stocks on the market] It has risen rapidly in value, bnt not withoat real cause. It ia in a high atate of proaperity, and has reached a pcint from which there can be no perma nent relapse. There may be fluctnationa, from the oj orations of speculators ilea of weak hdders, but aa the next d <1 day approachee, the facts preaented will, \ doubt, revolutionize the public mind in regart the stock aa an invest ment. It takes time and i met able evidenoea of real worth to wear away old prcjudicea; but it must be borne in mind tbat this ia the age of progress, and that the past twelve months have worked won ders in consolidating and strengthening all our railroad ccmpaniea. Our railroad managera have had pretty dear experience since last July, and the economy and judgment now exercised in the ope rating departments of railroads, particularly in tbia section of the country, ia much greater than ever before, and stockholders must see the effect, not only in those heretofore productive, but in those which have been hied almcit to death by reckless financierirg.

The message of the Governor in relation to tolls on railroads, for the protection of the revenues of the public canals of this State, haa created quite an excitement among stockholders in railroads, par ticularly in those connected with the freighting business of the West. The Governor makes a great mistake in calculating npon an increase in tolls on the canala from levying a toll on freight transported cn railroads. If the revenues of the canals eould be Increased by taxing railroads, it might be advisable to do so, but we have no guaranty that such a re sult would be realised. There are now six lines of railroad running from the Atlantic seaboard to the interior of the great West. Three of thesa roads are in the State of New York, two in Pennsylvania, and one in Maryland. Soon there will be other lines in operation in this State, and aa thoae of Pennsylva nia ud Maryland are improved udenluged, we muat look for a competition among them all, greater thu ever yet realized. AH these roods compete directly with the Erie Canal of thia State, for the tranaportation of freight from the Weat, ul tb? time haa gone by when the legislation of any Stat* can place restrictions upon the carrying trade cf such u extended section of oonntry. To provide waya ud meua to meet the current expenditures of the government ia the first duty of the executive, aud be bu a perfect right to imposi such restrictions upon the operations of computes Incorporated by the Legislature of the Btate a a may be deemed necee aary to meet uy emergency; but in thia matter it ia aimply u experiment? one that win, in our opi nion, utterly fail to accomplish the object required. A deficiency in the publio revenue is a matter of the ?ost vital importance, ud req aires immediate at tention. If by experlmuts which preve failures the deficiency reaches a large amount, the diffloulty bs c< noes serious, ud the remedy more doobtfuL We have no faith in the imposition of tolls on railroad freight. The legislature must create some other source of revenue, even if it li direct taxation, to replenUh the treasury. It would be hard for the rathoad computes connected with this movement to <x nr. pete with rival routea, with such an addition al burden npon them ; bnt a portion of that difficulty ccu!d be removed by the Legislature raining the (barges lor passenger traffic. So far m the rati rosds are concerned, this might neutralise uy bad e fleet from tolls, but the canals would not be bene fitted in uy way. We hoid that the re venae from tb? oanals would not ?>? increased one dollw by the imposition of toils on railroad freight, ud that ia the question the legislature have to coeaiaer. We understand that Mr. Auditor Hshoonmaker will be appelated Bank Commissioner, in place of Mr. D. R. St John. It la full time a change waa rad* in that important effloe, aad we are rlad that the Governor baa made snob a good selection. The Michigan Central Railroad Company has negotiated it* loan of six hundred thousand dollar* Eight per cent Convertible bends, it rates varying from 89 to 96 4 per eent. The entire amount of bide was for note than one million of dollar*. The McCuIlock Oopper and Gold Mining Compa ny ia about being organized under a charter granted by the State of North Carolina, and active opera tion* under the new management will aoon com. menee at the miner. The report of Mr. W. W. Palmer, the mining engineer, dated the 8th inatant, given a very encouraging exhibit of the condition and reaourota of the company'* property. From the financial statement joit made, it appears that the anm of $290,468 haa been received and expend ed In the purchase, construction and expense ac count*, and that the present debt of the company amount* to the ram of $91,903; that of this i mount, the sum of $69,921 has been funded for three years, and ia merged in bonds of the com pany, to be issued when it* new organisation ia perfected, which bords are intended to be se cured by a first mortgage on the property; that of the remainder, or floating debt, $17,232 ia no* due, and the balance will mature in the course of ihe next six month*. To meet these payment* it ia proposed that the stockholders subscribe for the company's bonds to the amount of forty thousand doliara, to be lamed in sum* of two hundred and fifty doliara each, redeemable in two years. The Michigan State Treasurer haa given notioa that he will commence the redemption of the circu lating note* of the Ann Arbor Government Stock Bank on the 10th May next, at Lansing, out of the fund* arising from the sale of stock securities here tofore dlspoaed of. Holders are require! to surren der their notes on or before the 28th day of April next. The dividend will be founded upon the amount surrendered at that time, and thia dividend will be final.

The bank bill passed a few days since by the Legislature of Indiana, over the veto of the Gover nor, doe* not meet with much flavor among careful, cautions capitalist*. It is stated that the State Bank does not intend to reorganize under the new law. According to the Governor's veto, it contains some extraord inary provisions. He say* : ? The hank is authorized to receive on deposit money, builitn, plate, and other articles of value iu small bulk, upon such terms as may bs agreed on between the par ties; nnc the bauk has s right to discount paper to the extent of three times the amount of the capital stock paid in, and three times the amount of the deposits. Thus the bank would seem to be left to determine what are valuable articles, other than moneys, bullion and plate, provided they be of small bulk, and al-.o their value, without reference to their immediate converti bility into mosey, and night discount to an amount equal to three times such assamed value, as well as three times the value of the capital stock and other deposits. In cups of a financial crisis, what kind of security is furnished for the redemption of the paper ? The secu rity of issues, resting on such a basis, is altogether illu Fory. It is believed, too, that the right to emit so lar^re an iFrne of paper, upon such an amount and kind of curities, is unparalleled in the history of legislation.
