' Bng*4'jr, The Iwnc ot P??c? or War Is with Spain. I Kioto tb? Waahington C'nian (officii), April 28.] Tbe dlspoeit on manifested by ?ome of our ootompora riea to eon plain ot the reoent wmum of the admin istration, acopted la consequence of the Ute aggreMions upon inniciii tl|bt> in the high >9xb ntu Cub?, as not being sufficiently etringwnt ?n<l compreuendve, icclinea us to think that the powers of the Executive in the pre mi>es hare not been as well consi.-erel as t ley ought to be before inlulglng in censorious comments. With our conviction as to the enormi y ?>! the se.erai outrages perpetrated, our ftebngs would have Been jri?tifie<S if a naval force could have been ordered to Havana wit?- peremptory Instructions to demand prompt aud ample reptration there an. I, upon it* refusal, to inflict summary and exemplary puuiahment ctlesdinir parties. We have no doubt tli if President Pttrce had feit authorized to follow his unpulwH, he would not have hesitated to adopt aud enforce su^h a policy for redress; and we have ai little doubt I tbat the inputs *b et the American people would hare warmly appiored sue* a means of redreisiag flagrant insult* and injmies. But it must be rennmbdrad mat the [ resident is not authorized to iollow b s impulses unices they dictate measures olearly within hie consti tutional powers 'lb?re la no man in the whole I ni on who is more sensitive in regard to our national honor, and none who lelt more keenly or mc*o InJigoantly the wanton intuits offered to our Hag by the tipnnish offi cials; and yet, in the dissliarge of his high duties, he was bound by the most solemn obligations to keep within the pa'e of the constitution in the measures adopted either for redre'S or for future security ajainst similar outrages. It wore better to ?ndure teaip irarily the vkilatioaa oi onr rights than to M?k their re lrean at tlie expetae of tbo*e fundamental prinoiple* which de tine and limit the powers of th? executive department of the government. Believing that the " aober second thought" of all true men will sanetfoa th?ae sentl ments, we shall proceed to nctiae the limitations upon the executive power in adopting measures to meet ths pressn^ exigeccy, i'id to sbo?v that those adopted mini jut the determination of the admniatratlou to go to the verge of his conet tutional autboiity in providing a re medy for the late aggressions. We assume without hesitation, and with entire confl deuce teat there never was ttie leist doubt on the mln<l of the' Executive as to the aggressive cnara -ter of ttie late conduct ol Spanish officers m stopping and board ing and exiimining our merchant vessels. To douit on this point would be to impute to him btn'imen'R in re gard to the inviolability o' our fl?? wnich w.uld be as iirtconcilabl<- with well eaUbliehed international lav as with patriotism. We do not use the terms ?' fir ing into" or " brnging 1o," becuutte we snouid feel hu nSiated if we suppled tbe President capable of disre garding the aubstanoe of the late aggression* for the par pofe of cavilng aad sticking upon the deinitloui of ch< terms used to d sciiba the details of transactions whose illegal character depends upon no such investigations. It was just as illegal for the Spanish officers to Are "over," or "aTOund," or " befcro" our vessels as " at" or " into" tbem in the particular instances which have called for the interposition of our government. Whatever the acts were, they were Intended to stop, and subject to visitation and examination vessels ovei which the Spanish officers had no jurisdiction. It was the ex ersise of the right of the search, or visitation, or exam inat onontbe high seas; and whether this assumed right was exercited by Bring cannon balla "over," or ?'before, " or "into" onr vessels, only indicates a great er or lies degree of aggravation In the aggression, bit it doe* nor affect the legality of the act. The fact was cleaily established that onr vessels were stopped (whether by force or menace is immaterial) and sub jected to visitation and examination. In thU consisted the viol at on of international law? in this was the sur greation upon American rights? in this was the in su't to the American flag? in this was the outrage which calle 1 for the interposition of all the pi wer po'sessed by the Executive both for redress lor wrongs already in dieted and for the prevention of their repetition in future. What power, then, could the President legitimately exercise by way ct redref sY If he bad ordered the !inlf squadron to proceed to Havana an<l demaud immediate reparation of ttie t'aptatn General of Cuba, and, upon his refusal, to blockade the poits of tbe island or to bombard its towns, theke would have been unequivocal acta ot war. But the President Ins do power to make war. When an injury calU for redress be is bound to demand reparation, and if it is refused, and re dress is only Attainable by a r?sort to force, he must havd the autboiity of Congress to proceed, unless the ollerding party ia of that lawless or piraticsl character irrespon. iUe to any government ca pable of makmg reparation, w bi ,:h make1 his punish ment an exception to civilized rules of proceeding. If, upon tbe refusal of the Captain General to make immediate reparation, the President had ordered the com mander of the squadron to loos up ti e offending Spanilh Innate, and 10 capture or t int her, this would have b, en to make a reprisal. Rut ttie constitution has not coc'eried up<n tbe President the authoiity either to declare war or to make jeprisal*. If the nectary power had eaitted, th?, outrages would wall havs justi fied a report to one or th?i other moJe of redress, and we nave gcorf reason to believe that the President was only rentruiced from adapting the oue or tae otjer m:>ae , from the comlction ibst be could only do eo c.t tbe ex pense of tbe constitution. It is apparent, then, that under his constitutional powers, it was not competent for the Executive to adopt those summary and effec tive measures for repress which the outraged sense of the American people seemed so clearly to dem and. If ba had been actuuttd tn his policy by those ambitijus or selfish cor ideratuns which some of his e it nied have so urscrupulously attribuied to him, h-5 saw such manifestat ons of popular iodignatiou aga'ast tne ag giesrors that might weil liave uinpted a Isjb discreet aid conscientious Trealcient to overstep the baunds fix ed by the cmstltution to hi^ powers. Without pretend ing to Udicate. or sven to kuow, what poti :y the Presi dent has adopted to obtain ample reparsti -n 'or these outrages, vr* venture couGdently to affirm tb it taa ao quel will prove that he has discharged his whole dutr, anc that if lull recress is not spesiily oota'nei tbe country will attach to him no res pons! oiiity for want of promptness or energy In the exercise of all the pow ers belonging to him Wben Con^reas a<{*iu ia=?nblo', - :? ,v?n ;ir>u?ar that the Presilent has exhausted all ? -r - ?.

It is the duty o' tbe txecu'ilve to pr ite'.t cur oommsres anc our national rights ou the lii^l mm, tni to theae enda tot I re.i lent is furnished with a navy aud army, *nd in made their commander. Although he may not constitutionally make war to relresa p?st bour.es, hs nav us? the nnvy or army, or b;>th, to prevant injur.es. and. i< n??d be, he w\y re,. el and prevent forcille s^ riessioDs by foraible re-istmce, even thiagh a sU'e cf hostilities should be the un*v.??iail? conse nuence. Tbe riilit of self defense belongs as wall to nations as to Individuals; and when a nec??sary resort to tt biings with it the consoquence of war. it ia war oy the act of the off nling party, aod involvjs no violation of executive powers If a foreign army invades oar ter ritrrv the Pre.i 'ent, as commander of the in.ll arr forces is bound to repel It, aitnoujh war tnereby fol lows In like manner, if tbe exclusive jariid.ction on the high teas which our flag guarantees to the dec* of every American vesset is invaded by an attempt to exer else ttfe right of search cr vtfita'.ion or examination, the Preiident is as much bound to resist and repel the inva sion of one of our ship's decks as to resist and repel the Invasion of our territory. He would tie as derelict of dnty in one ca?? as In the other if be failed to exert the means placed at his disposal upon toe apprehens on that war might ensue; it ia enough for him to kn .w that if war cemes in such way. it comes by the act of the ln vadsr The only question of embarraas sent In snch easels as to tbe tune when the aggreasion may here aiated or resented by the^executive ItUcl-ar, however that, so long as tbe aggression continues the retort to forclb.e means of resistance or punishment ia lawful. If our naval or military force be present or within striking distance when an aggression tskea place, wtiether upon our teiTltory or one of oUr m.rehant vessels the right anl the duty to Interpose for protection, resistance, and punishment. t? too clear to need argument for its illua tration. It It equally cle-r that if the naval and military not wtua'lv present, but reacU ths scene o aggression before the aggressor baa consummated his ?Strage snd retired from the place the right to in^er Dose exists. We shoull maintain that, um.er pewullar clrcumskanoea of aggravation and atrocity, a naval or military commander would be justified in look ng up and pumab ng the offender even though the aggression had Len eonsummated. and the olfender withdl-awn lrom tbe place of torn mitt ing the ofTsnce. It is only in ax trerne cases of thia kind that any real d-ffiaulty ia pre sented aa to the extent cf executive piwei 'in rep? redreeslng irjury and ioault. Ilscaute of such d'ffl inlty tbe resjonMbillty Is devolved upon the Presiient ef ex ercisinn special wifdom and precaution in tbe aele: ion of ihe officers to whom sucb delicate trusts are comtn t ted. That considerations like these have operats.1 upon the executive in p'aclng Commodore McCauley in command of the gulf squadron we have no doabt; anl that' his prudence, circumspection and viti.aace wil illustrate the propriety of the selection we have as little doubt. It ia scarcely neceesary to remark, that as th? late occurrence n tbe i.e>g hlorhr.'xl of Cuba have caufnl tbe President to ?end a raval force t'lere, the inference la conclusive, that the objest Is to (trerent a repetition of such occurrences and to p\ini?h tb?m I' their repo'ition ia attempted. lho?e mts ere regarded by tbe nt? >u' ve ae violations of international law and indignities to our flag and aggressions upon our r*ghts and ob tr'ist ons to our commerce, wbteh cannot, an<l will not be tolerate 1 Cor<modore Mnranley will raise no questions of naval etlonetle In connexion with the exercise of the ritht of TlaiUtio* or fiauiBation of oui vesgela by Spanish war ihiM HU bnaiiMai is to know that oargoTanuMat lepudiatee all controversy u to the exerclao of ??? right, whether it bo aiugbt ?? coror It i?u* J" Vrmn of ?' bringing to " or " firing oto-," o- ? ?? of tbo nar?l pbraaoa which aro 'wJLu. inTcsttgi'ed in aomo of tbo now.- - ^^58 1h?r it '.a a?a?rted openly and Ui.br Pp?o'?h right ii? do4M. th,M wUh K Ul{. eograpber in his band to ente ^ lntt) pMlol(ui,,4i dilq,(. iiilona.wUh Sjan<ah office batto H%, to them, " Vou can claim oo right V> '^^h. ri'ltatioa, or examination of any T?:iel r'gnu ^fly bearing our flag upon the high a?*a, undtr any {?<pe or any pretext, in my presence or within ""..y re??k; If you attempt It, the ast will bo dona at y.ur ptril " If tho hi telligincer cliooaea to regard In t'Vuciioi " of tbia character aa " bloody," it ia welcome to make tbe moat of tbom; other eltixnua, of bettor p% ir'otldm, will judge differently.

We btTt nothing new to report In the way of money matter*. Tke supp'y of capital U far In advance of the demand, and the surplus cannot finJ employment eren in fancy stoeka. Tlie bank* find It difficult to keep up their line of discounts, and will, without doabt, show in their next weekly etatoment a further contraction in loan*. In the mldnt of this plethora in the money mar ket, we find no speculation of consequence going on in lancy stock i. That class of securities ia well heH, and no amount is pressing for aale; hut there is an abaenje of buyers that tend* materially to keep down prices. The fancy stock list ia, as a general thing, neglected. One or two prominent railroad stocks hire strong friends, and are pretty well sustained, while the rest have not moved upward but moderately during the p*at three or four months. Fortunately for the stock market and for the bankers, some securities have improved so much in actual value that prices could not have been kep*. down, even under a more reduced supply of money. There are very few stocks operated ia daily at the board, which are, in reali'y, fancier A few years since the street was full of them hew, not above half a dozen can be scraped together. Ibis givea a better baais to specu. latlon. It Is true lome of the mo it substantial securi ties on the market have, within the past year, run down almost as far and as last as the most worthless fancy In years previous, but there was a recuperative power which prevented confidence from disappearing altogether, and induced many to bold, even In the most gloomy pe riods, for a return of better times. A good portion of the depreciation has been removed, and the public m'.nd is filled with confidence in future values. It la some what strange that with this extending cheapness aud abundance of money, there is not more activity aud a greater Inflation In stocks. Present prices cannot be suhtained in the absence of buyers. The market must be kept moving to keep it healthy, and holders must do something to attract new operators. The amount of specie exported from this port from January 1 to Apni 28, 1865, both inclusive, was $7,892, 682, against $7,366,068, for the same period the previous year, showing an increase this year of $526,624. Albert H Nicolay's regular semi- weekly auction silo of stock and bonds will take placc on Monday next, .he 30th Inst., at 12 )i o'clock, at the Merchants' Exchange. The cash bah nee in the hands of the United States Assistant Treasurer of Boston, on the 28th inst., was as follows:?

Sometime since the stockholders of the Harlem Rail road Compary appointed a committee to nominate suit able persons for directors to be voted for at the next annual election. Tba*. committee have not reported yet and tnere is no guaranty that it will. The stockholders will, therefore, be left to provide a ticket for them wives; and it is full time that tbey looked to it. The first step ftr them to take is to withdraw all old proxies. Any and every stockholder who ha* ever given a proxy should hunt it up and see that it is annulled or destroy ed. If tbey cannot find the individuals to whom they were given, send a revocation to the presidtnt of the company, which will be effective enough to block any irside g?me. Tt ? election takes place on the 15th of May. It is an important one, and every atockhold:? should attend personally if possible. Wall street bro kers are hard at work drumming up proxies, and they will get eontrol of the road again if possible. The antbraciie coal tonnage from the Schuylkill re gion was enonrous last week ? larger than ever before reported in any one week. The Reading Railroad brought down, for the week erdinj on Thursday, the extraordi nary amount of 50 095 tons, making, with that previous ly brought down thla year, 661,489 tons, against 556,705 tons to tbe swne time last year, the shipments on the Schuylkill Navigation for the week were also very large, reaching 31,258 tons? making for the season 165,478 tons, against 142,593 tons to the same time last year. The La high Navigation Company is just getting fairly at work The shipments for the week ending on Saturday list, were 23.196 tons, ?n<5 for the season to that t me, 41,689 tens. This Is rather less than to corresponding time list j ear, but the difference will probably soon be overcome, as It is understood that the company has made arrange ments for an increased shipment cn the last year'* busi ness. The annexed statement exhibits the comparative posi tion of the three leading railroad companies, the stocks of which are operated in extensively in this market, ac cording to official returns of 1854, and estimated receipt* for 18S5, upon th? baiis of income already re&l'ied:?

We h*ve put down the cost per mile of each road In 1855 the sime as In 1?54. A careful examination of these tahlea will dis close some astounding reunite. It will be seen that the Reading Railroad Company *tand* far in ad vance of either the Central or Erie In productiveness in cost ami capital. Tbe return* of net earniogs thus far received on tbe Reading railroad make the increase in net re ce'pts equal to sixty- *even per cent, while the gross re ceipt* *bow only an ln:?ase of thirty five per cent. Tke other roads may show a reduction In their oper ating expense*, but we have no returns yet showing sucli a re* nit. There la very little doubt but that the net Income of the Reading Railroad Company for the year* ending November 30, 1855, will exceed $3,000,000. last year the aggregate net Income wai $2,010 418 Thla year the flret four month* *how an Insreaae In net earning* of $193,849 54. 8uch a result In the dulleit four montba of the year, la aufficient to justify the esti mate given above. In making up the returns for the Krle railroad for 1855, we have made no aUowance for the slaking fund, which amounta to about four per cent on the capital, whieh would leave alx per eent for the stockholders. It la our lmprestion, however, that the operating expenses of hob the Erie and Centra* roads will lamely exceed the rate put down in our oa! culatlons. So long as the construction account of the Erie waa open, it was an easy mat'er to keep down the current tunning expenditure*, lhe returns for this j ear will, we fear, ebow a leas favorable result. We have not the all* blei t doubt but that the net income of the Reading Railroad Company during the present yoar, 1(155, will exceed in dolHrs and cents that of either the Central or Erie. Tbe only way to tost the correctness of this estimate, at the close of the year, will be to deduct nom the net receipte of each company tie Increass or construction account in the sam? time. We w.sh to put thla prediction upon record or future reference. Toe cost per mile of each of the three above nam-d roads do.s not piesent exactly a fair compiriaon.

Schuylkill region, fallen in with by the dealer, and .bipper. in Philadelphia, and carried to a height that ba. raiely been known in the bi?tory of any kind of business in this country. Now, a. in all operation, of this na ture there require, a .law to b. gulled, ?o we mu.t do the dealer, in, and consumer, of coal in New York and New England the justice to 'ay, that rarely, if ev?r, ha. there been wen a clas. of men more open to imposition, or who hav. been led more blindly and meekly by thoj. wbos. interest it wa. to hu nbug and deeelve them. The increawd cost of mining last season was giv.n a. a reawn why th. prise .hould advance, and thi. wa. greatly Insisted upon. Now, what ar* the fact. ? Th. incTcaaed coet of labor, with the aldltional .xpe.se of keeping up and feeding th. rtoek .f ?ul.s and horM. employed in .11 eollieri.a, wa. th. .ol. additional co.t of producing co.1; and it i. our opinion that, with the low tst wage, and cost of feed during March ?f last year, the expen.e of mining, breaking and screening coal, wa. tot increased during that year, even under the moit unfavorable elrcanutanee., more than thirty eenU net ton. The advance wa. far beyond that figure. Red Mb wa. freely sold in March, 1854, at $4 25 for ahlpment to New Englan J. and In October of th. aame year it reached $6 per ttn, an advance of $1 75; from thla muet be deducted the advance of railroad tolla, 55 cents, and . the actual advance in prlci to the producer will stand at $1 30, and deducting further the estimated increase in co.t, there will remain $1 per ton, not profit, but ineware of profit, in October, over that r.alited In the month of March. Now, a. the mining .f coal undoubt edly pale a profit at M?rch prices, it will ?ot be a large estimate to say that the average profit or mining io Schuylkill county the pa.t year w.s over $1 per ton, an enormous profit, when it Is considered that twenty thousand tons is a small production, and that soaie operators produce 80,000 to 100,000 tons. There are, of ocurse, contingencies in mining, such as faults in th. vein., which in individual case, may j-duce the profits ; but no candid man acquainted with this bu(iws* will say that the alove ., timat. i. too Urge for an average. It muat also be borne In mind t^at to. monthly advances in price, added by the producer, not only stimulated th. d.man.l, (lor the trade was in such an excited .tate that the dealer and con.urner ru.htd in to buy, to avoid paying a .till higher price,; but that it reacted npon the laboring miner, produced combination, to advance wages, strikes and turnouts, an4 actually reduced to a very considerable exwnt tlie amount of coal which, under a more h?althy stat. of things, might have Men produced and sent to mark.t. Every advance in wages was magnified far beyond the reality ; and it would not be go ng too far to say that, during a part of the year, % lea.t, .very ten cents ad T.nce in Ubor wa. mad. an argumeat for rnoie than double that ndvnD :e in price. In f?:t, for a great ^art of the year, the operator was, to Mm. ?xt?n?, at the merer ot tb. lib. ring miner; the dealer and large consume, of coil wit* ent'rely at the mercy of the ope rator ; and, harOent of all, th. poor con.umer wai at the meray of the deal.r-and all this because the opexator was grasping, and tb. purehaMr wai .asuy gulled. Now, it ia very ev.dent that a business of euch m?an'luil? m the raining of coal, ao much concentrate! in M? Held of operation, and comp?r?tively in ao few band*, can b# govern* ! and regulated to nult tbe pi* poses of those engaged ia it is a manner utterly out , tbe qnett on in regard to any of the great agricultural or manufacturing Interests of the country; and the ope rat on of Schuylkill county espeeUtly discovered this fact last year, and began to act upon it.

POBTO RIOO CIRCPLA* St. Johns, Porto Rico, April 1 J, 1865. The dtmand for sugars, mentioned in our report of 14th Mai ib, fell off a little for a few days, and wa wera in hopes with the accumulating stock a deelite in prices would result, but upon receipt of the news of the oeath of the Enp?: or of Russia, a speculative demand sprung up in several ot the out ports and large purchases were mace at 2e. to BJ^e , and even a 15 16o., which encour aged our planters^ ere to hold out; and, ultimately, con siderable transactions bare been made at nearly former prices, say 3c. to a Ho . acaording to quality? these prices rule now here ? and on the ooast, 3c to 3^e., and we fear there will be no decline from them, as a number of ordtrsare not now Mint executed, only for want of auitable veaaels, and it is beyond doubt that the crop in Gnayams, Pence and May agues, will be exceedingly rmaii, fal'ing far short of last year's, and finish very oon, ihoulo this iry weather oonttnue. This fact may alto have some effect in maintaining prices. On this sice there ate general ecmpiaints that, from some un accountable cause, the canes do not yield as in previous years, although in many p'aces they have good growth, snd our crop will also >e unsllsr than anticipated, bat it will not be over so soon as m other parts of the island. Molasses continues in demand and the pri.e has fur ther scvsnceil; we quote here 15c. to 10c and on the const $16 to $10. Coffee, has continued to come in freely. Fer a while It was dull at 8&c , but the demand increased and the price advsnosd to 10 a 10 >*c. Provisions of all kinds, except codfish, are very scarce snd much wanted, fiist arrivals wiO obtain high prloes. Of codfl-li^there is yet on liand a good deal of old, which will affect the oflerin* price ot any freeh cooing in.
