The News Ihe steamship Baltic, bow ia her eleventh dry out from Liverpool, had not been telegraphed at one ?'elook this morning. Notice has bten given In the lower branch of ihe New Hampshire Legislature of an intention bo introduce a personal liberty bill. We pre sume it will be identical with the act nullifying I e Fugitive Slave law passed by the Legislature of Massachusetts at its last session. Mr. Chatlee H. Stanly, of the British Consulate in this city, was arrested yesterday by one of M trail*1 Hillyer's deputies, and placed under one thousand dollars boids, to ananer a charge of enlletiag re ?robs fur the Crimea. The oeremonies attending the dedication of St. Paul's cathedral at Pittsburg, on the 24".h Inst., are deseiibed as having been highly imposing. Tae ex ercises commenced as early as live o'clock in the morning. Archbishop Hughes, of New York, wit a fourteen bishops and thirty-five piiests, participated In the occasion, and over five thousand people were prerent. About 10 o'clock the doors of the Cathe dral were optned, and the procession of bishops, prwsts and bye, number.ng one hundred and fifty, entered and celebrated Pontifical High Mass. Tae bishops were clothed in magnificent c jstnme. A*v.b tnabop Hughes was conducted to the pulpit by two of the clergy, and preached a sermon from Acts xx. 28. The services consumed the principal part of the day. In the everiug Archbishop Kendrick preached, from Matthew xi. 7, a sermon dts jriptive of the vlitnesof St. John. The Lamps and Gas Committee of the Board of Cooncllmen met yesterday for the consideratbn of the application of the Metropolitan Gis Compiny for leave to lay gas pipes through the street of tie eity. 0' course, the other gas corporations opp '?ei the prr ject; bat tot being prepared to show cause why, the subject was postponed until next Friday week. Th# Metropolitan Company expect to far Bit h a better quality of gas at a cheiper rate than their rivals now Bnpply to their customers, also to charge only for the gas actually consumed, and far thermcre, to transact business bo as to give general ?atisfactioB to the pub ic. This, we take it, iatho sort of gas company that the public have been wanting for many years past. I*t us have good and cheap gas?let there be light. The German Seengeifest closed yesterday with a grand picnic In Elm Park, at which about fifteen thou sand persons were present, including the viri ons societies. A gisphio and interesting report will be fonnd in another oclamn. The Almshouse Governors hold an interesting meeting yesterday. They made a complete change in the government of the virions institutions, and did several other things of note, as will bs seen by our report elsewhere. Mr. Patterson, formerly janlor editor and part proprietor of the Parkville Luminary, whose press was thrown into the river, some time since, by Mis souriin citizens, and the Rev. Frederick Starr, for merly a Presbyterian m'ssionary in Piatte oouaty, Missouri, spoke last evening before a very slim au die nee, in the Tabernacle. They related a good deal of their experience in that region of country. We give a repoM elsewhere. By the schooner Muiia Elizabeth, from Caracoa, we have received a letter from our correspondent there, dated Jane 10. Tae climate of Curacoa is re oommended as peculiarly gratefal to invalids afflict ed with incipient pulmonary disease. Salt gathe-f uig had commenced at Bcnure, but the crop would not be no large as usual. Our Consul at Caracoa wis giving much satisfaction, and it was thought that the treaty lately concluded between the government! of Holland and the United States woald remove all eauee of future difficulty between our represent* fives and the colonial authorities. In Venezuela, She Monsgaa djnasty was in a critical position, and likely to break down soon. General Paez, or such another man, was wanted at the head of affiirs. Additional papers from Bermuda state that a le glslative return rxbibits very tatiafactary evidence M the sound financial condition of the treasury. The balance of cash In hand over and above tbo expenditure, for the year ending March 31, 1853 > waa ?1,137. The Bishop of Newfonndlaad had held B visitation of the clergy of the Cnarch of England la the colony. Cotton waa stead) yesterday, with aaies of about 1,000 a 1,500 bales. Holders refased to make con ia favor of par chasers, and there was no change In prices from the closing quotations of last Batorday. Common grades of floor fell off 121 cents per bbl., while fancy and extra brands were steady. A small lot of Michigan white wheat soid at $2 50 * $2 65. Bye was lower. Pork was firm, with freo transactions, especially in new moss and prime. Ia. dien corn was one to two cents per bushel Ijwst, with large salts. Freights, in a general way, were dull; 30,000 a 40,000 bushels of corn, in bugs and bulk, were engaged for Liverpool, at 3i<L a 4|d., with small lota of cotton at 3-lGd. a 7-32d. The faUicg off in the amouu'. received for tolls on the New York canals since the opening of navign ticn this sea?on, as compared with tbe receipts of laat year, amounts to $125 081 25. The liquor dealers of BofUlo, at a public meeting beld on Ba today last, resolffd to oontiuue tho sale of liquors sltcr the Fourth of Joly, as formerly, and ntlnue the business until the onuts decide aJlnAU c-nstitn'ionality of the proh bitory las. Trouble with CorwiphBfcwM be tween Count Wabwikl and Mr* Macon. It Bet nw that the despatches lately received from our Minister in France were not wholly confined to the circular note of Gonnt Nes selrode on the rights of neutrals. By re ference to our telegraphic correspondence from Washington, it will be seen that the difficulty between our government and France, arising out of the arrest of Monsieur Dillon at San Francisco, is assuming rather a trouble some character, having recently formed the subject of a lengthy correspondence between Mr. Mason, our Minister at Paris, and Count Walewski, the French Minister of Foreign Af fairs. This correspondence has jnst been trans mitted by Mr. Mason to the department at Washington, and has led to some ourious scenes in the Cabinet. The French government, it seems, still insists upon our rendering satis faction for the arrest of Dillon, by our firing a salute of a hundred guns in honor of his flag. The President, with Jeff. Davis and some of the other fire-eating members of his administration, haviog an eye to the ad vantages that may accrue to themselves per sonally from raising, just at the present mo ment, a little popu'ar excitement on the sub ject, are for taking high ground, and refusing to make the concession demanded. Marcy, however, with h<s usual iudoleuce of character and disposition to truckle to foreigi govern ments, is ready to fire any number of guns or waste any quantity of powder in order to rid himself of any further trouble in the matter. As this question is likely to excise a good deal of discussion, it may be advisable briefly to review the circumstances that have led to it. Itfwillbe recollected that when that dasning adventurer, the Count Raousset de Boulbon, meditated hiB expedition into Soaora for the purpose, in fact, of planting a French co lony there, and thus establishing a foothold for French interests in South America, he openly enlisted men in San Francisco for the military organization which w&3 to form its basis. Iu this it is charged that he received, if not active aid, at least full countenance, fr >m Monsieur Dillon, the Freach Consul at that port?Dillon himself, it is believed, acting either under the instigation or direct orders of the French Minister in Mexico. When prelimi nary steps were taken by the authorities at Saa Francisco to put a stop to these unlawful pro ceedings, it was found necessary to sum nou the French Consul before the tribunal charged with the investigation of the matter. Monsieur Dillon refused to attend, pleading that by the consular treaty existing between the two coin tries, he was exempted from being called a-* a witness before the American courts. Judge Hoffman, before whom the question of exemp tion was argued, decided that the constitution allowed no such rights to any foreigner, what ever might be his functions, and issued a war rant to compel the attendance of the Consul. Mr. Dillon was accordingly arrested and brought before the Judge; but persisting iu his refusal to give evidence, the matter was referred to the government at Washington for its decision. In the meanwhile Mr. Dillon struck his flog, and wrote home to France a statement of the facts. Mr. Marcy, upon a review of the circum stances, decided that Judge Hoflman b ?d ex ceeded his powers, and ordered the Consul to be set frte. This did not, however, satisfy the French government, which demanded in addition that a salute should be fired in honor of his flag. Marcy, who has a turn for special pleading, took shelter behind the constitutional grounds which he had abandoned in his previous de cision. The reply of the French government was that it had nothing to do with the American constitution?that a treaty existed between the two countries, which protected the persons of French agents from arrest, and that it had a right to demand redress for the violation of the conditions of that treaty. In this position the question has remained up to the present time. The French government still insists upon its original demand, and the object of the corres pondence between Count Walowskl and Mr. Mason is to bring the matter to some immediate decision. The divers views which are entertained on the subject in our Cabinet will probably still further postpone its settlement. The personal interests which are mixed up with the question, although they may delay, will not, however, prevent a tame submission to the demands of France. Marcy, as we have before stated, tats already made up his mind on the question; he will cave in. He now rests his opinion in favor of the concession, it seems, on the precedent established in the case of the Spanish Consul at New Orleans, when his house was sacked by a mob after the slaughter at Atares. Iu that in stance, orders were given by Mr. Webster that the Consul's flag should be saluted when ro hoisted. There were many who were of opinion that such a measure of reparation was uncalled for by the circumstances There are more who will think, in the present instance, that an honor paid to a foreign functionary who is known to have been an accomplice in a gross infraction of our laws, is a humiliation and abasement to our national dignity. In whatever aspect, however, this question may be viewed, it presents in a pitiable light the influences by which our Cabinet is gov erned in the decision of difficulties growing out of our relations with foreign Powers. Io l?ombarding Grey town or blockading the steamer United States they arc full of pluck; but when they have a nation like France to contend with, they give up at once, and make all the concessions required of them. The interests and the honor of the country seem, in fact, to form but secondary considerations in their eyes. The lust of power and the temp tations of official corruption are impulses too strong for their patriotism to resist. Whilst men actuated by such motives hold the relas of government, we must expect to see sacrificed by piecemeal that proud position amongst na tions which it cost our forefathers such paius to build up. Tweedledum and Tweedledee.?In spite of our public laws and the officers of the govern ment, one after another we hear of vessels suiting from cur shores for Neva Scotia with recruits for the A'lies in the Crimea. Ou the other hand, the vigilance of the administration in suppressing Kinney expeditions to Nicara gua, and liberating enterprises to Cuba, com mands the active energies of all the legal and naval forces cf the United States. Why is this? Does Marcy sympathize with the Allies against Russia, and in favor of the Africauiza tion ?f Cuba, or how? It is very evident tiere is seme free soil crotchet in his head in refer ence to the charces of the next Democratic National Convention. Let the Russian Minister call at the State Department for an cxplaua Ucn. PpipaMd Trtf?!?! tm Lteat?M?HlWWf*l We eopj (leewhere an article from the Cou rier and Enquirer, on the subject of General Scott. lie drift Ib to bespeak for the veteran some solid testimonial of the publio gratitude for his eminent cervices. The argument is that General Scott has done more 1 or this country than any living man ; that he has extended her frontiers, defended her soil, preserved peace within her borders; and that the reward he has received for all this is poverty and neglect Hence, the Courier conceives, it would be fit ting?nay, it is a duty for the people of the United States to "make some demonstration in Older to vindicate themselves from the odious charge of ingratitude and insensibility to great actions;" in plainer words, to raise by subscrip tion such a sum as will place the old hero at his ease, release him from the pressare of pecu niary need, and enable him to ppsnd the re mainder of his life in a style suited to his rank and fame. We concur most heartily in the idea. We think it shameful that the greatest American General of the present century should in hiB old age actually see his happiness dis turbed by paltry cares about money. We know of nothing so disgraceful to the American people as that they should use this glorious old man in their need, send him abroad to fight their battles, send him here to quell civil strife and there to avert foreign wars?and when all is over, the danger past, and the country strengthened and increased by his valor, that they should turn their backs on him, and think they have done their duty by paying him the pitiful emoluments of his rank. And we are much mistaken if future cavillers do not make large use of the fact to prove the gradual demoralization of public sentiment in the United States of America. Abroad of course such a thing could not take place. The first impulse of a British public is to give lands and rentrolls and titles to him who fights the Queen's battles; Marl' borough, Clive, Nelson, Collingwood, Welling ton, Moore, aod almost every other great British General have been amply repaid for their toils and their dangers; where Parliament has not voted lands, the Queen has given offices with fat salaries. The gn-at French Generals of the century have been better rewarded thau any other class of celebrities in France. It is so of course in Russia; and we know that in Prussia and Austria, military prowess is al most the only road to favor at court and the auv&ntages of rarik and wealth which follow, Hone ol these nations grudge their great sol diers their proper meed of honor; they glorify tthem as loudly as we do ours; but the ditfer lence between us is that their gratitude does not stop there; after the firevorks and the shouts and the triumphal processions, they give gold and lands where we are satisfied with giving newspaper panegyrics. Some one may say : What have we to do with iorcign nations? Our plan is not theirs, and their rules of conduct cannot apply to us. Very true. Republics and monarchies cauuot properly be compared. A'hens, we koow, starved her best men, and Plutarch traces her ruin to that cause. Rome neglected her gene rals and philosophers to pay honor to mere possessors of wealth, and hence, Augustus fontd her conquest easy. We seem to be fol lowing the example wkh siagolar fidelity. God knows our best men may Btarve for aught the public knows or cues, a'.d poor old Gen. Scott, laden with glory, is chased to the grave by duns. Some time ago, a British captain, un^er-?ir cumttancts of no ordinary peril, rescued from shipwreck several American citizens. We made a god of him. We dined him and gave him balls; he met the Mayor, the Common Council, the Chamber of Commerce, and all sorts of other public bodies; wc gave him testimonial* and presents; the crowd cheered him, and every man pressed forward to squeeze his baud; and, wha. was better than all, we gave him money enough to quit the sea, and live quietly, if he choose, on the interest of his capital. Now, how trifling the service of Captain Creighton? richly as it deserved the re ward he got?in com parison with the deeds of Winfield Scott! Forty-two years ago, when most of those who read these lint s were uDborn or in the cradle, he was winning the battles which saved tne northern frontier, and leading that glo rious charge on the banks of the Niagara which, in everything but its splendid result, may fairly be likened to the late charge of t&e British Light Cavalry at Bahklava. Had it not been fcr Winflild Scott, Michigan might then have pas&td into the hands of the enemy and remained British to the present day. To pass over his memorable services in the Indian wars, we find him again serving his country quite as usefully in averting a threatened wa-. Those who have been close readers of history are quite aware that nothing but the eiquisite tact, firmnces and skill of General Scott pre vented this great calamity. Again wc find him at the first call of danger, leading the United States armies into the fields of Mexico; doing battle as rudely with a paltry ignorant jealous administration as with the foe; com batting disease as boldly as cannon balls; march ing straight forward, from battle field to battle field, from fort to fort, from citadel to citadel; and closing the war in less timo, at leas ex pense, and with less loss than any war of fitni lar proportions in modern or ancient times. It were feeble to add to these his large services in organizing the army; in bringing the vari ous educational departments of the service to perfection; in placing West Point on its present admirable footing. The only thing wanting, it deed, for the completeness of his historical character was the defeat of 1852. Had he died before running for President, or had he never accepted the nomination, we might have wept the soldier, the statesman, the man equally great in peace and in war; hut we should not have had the pleasant memory of the Christian gentleman, nobly resigned to seeming neglect, and frankly submitting to whatever afTront Providence and his countrymen might have in store for him. To come to the point. We have obtained with great difficulty from Congress the rank of Lieutenant-General for our,hero; hut, as our readers are aware, the democratic Secretary of War and the democratic Attorney-General have contiivcd, on some quibble or other, to cheat the old man out of his arrears of pay. We second the idea^of the Courirr, and pro pose that the people take the matter ont of the tends of Congress and the administration?that, ibty raise by subscriptkn half a million or more of dollars, (Cobden, for carrying a single mtasure of domestic economy, got $100,000 from the English.) and give it to General Scott. A hutdnd thousand dollars might be laid ittt at once in a boose in this city where the Gene ral might entertain suitably to hie rank. The balance would enable him to %oad the re mainder of his life in ease and oe afcrt, and to leave something to his children. There should be no limit to the subscriptions.. Each man shon'd give in proportion to his gratitude to the man who secured the northern frontier and acquired California; and to his adm ration for the character and genius of Winfield Scott. For our part, when we remem ber what he has done, and how much the coun try owes him, we ieel that nothing less than a thousand dollars would adequately testify our gratitude and admiration ; and any who take up the matter may put down our name for one thousand dollars accordingly. Now, good peo ple, how much are yon grateful fur? How much do you admire General Scott? The Hard Shell Meeting To-Night.?A large nnmber of great guns have been invited to the hard shell glorification to-night, at the Metropolitan theatre?Mr. Wise and Senator Hunter, of Va, among others. But we under stand that neither Wise nor Hunter will be forthcoming, and most probably nine-tenths of the other distinguished invited guests will be mi ssing. The fact Is, nobody knows that any of the stars expected will shine upon this occasion. The bards, as well as the Bofts, are under a cloud. The former are something less than a respect able faction?they are reduced to a corporal's guard of would-be leaders, the rank aud file having gone over, almost en masse, to the Know Nothings, in the la-t November election. It was a groat piece of- folly for tbe hards to get up this meeting without the consent and co operation ot Captain Rynders.
He iB the rightful leader of the New York de mocracy under the new Virginia dispensation of Henry A. Wise. We are sorry for the hards We fear that their meeting to-night will be a fizzle; but we shall see. Will Messrs. Cutting, Brady, O'Conor, Cooley and others be good enough to come forward? They may be wanted to fill up the chinks. Tub Kinney Expedition?Two Strings to the Bow.?We adverted lately to the fact tbat the redoubtable Col. Walker, from the defunct republic of Lower California and Sonora, had sailed from San Francisco with an armed force of some fifty odd men for the invasion of Nica ragua, on the Pacific side, while Col. Kinney was to make his Anglo-Saxon raid from the Atlantic side, and that they were to meet in the middle of that country, and turn it over by a coup d'itat to North American enterprise, under a progressive, go-ahead Yankee govern ment This view of the subject has been sub sequently confirmed by the published letter of Col. Kinney to Col. Walker, inviting him to the perils and profits of this grand Nicaragua scheme. Curious and startling remits may be soon ex pected. Col. Walker bas doubtless gone into this new promised land with his fifty men, on the Pacific side, in search of Col. Kinney. The latter, however, detained here by government lawsuits and blockades, was serioasly belated in getting off; and having at length slipped through the fingers of the administration, it is feared that he will reach Nicaragua, on the Atlantic 6ide, in a worse condition than Walker on the Pacific.' A junction of their forces, under such drawbacks, appears to be out of the ques tion. There is real danger that both parties may fall victims to their temerity, and that this Nicaragua scheme may end as fatally to its leaders as the last Cuban expedition of Lopez. We shall await the news of the recep tion of Col. Walker and Col Kinney in Nica ragua, therefore, with anxious solicitude. Mr. Ford, op Ohio, at the Philadelphia Know Nothing Council?A Bonus Speech. The Seward organs are publishing what pur ports to be "a correct report ot the speech which Capt. Ford, of Ohio, delivered at the Philadelphia Know Nothing Convention " As far as the report is concerned, it would do cre dit in their peculiar line of intense run-mad aV I olitionism, to Lloyd Garrison or Theodore Par ker. But we undertake to say that this report ed speech is a bogus affair?;h it no such speech was delivered in the Philadelphia Council, and that somebody has thus been making a catspaw of Captain Ford, with or without his knowledge and consent. After the adjournment of the Philadelphia Council. Captain Ford came over here to New York, and very distinctly declared his party still to be the Know Nothings. All he wanted was a little proviso to help on the cause iu the free eoll districts of Ohio. What toys Captain Ford? lias he consented to this report of his Philadelphia speech, or has some designing tool of Seward palmed it off upon him at a v, nture ? The Albany Soft Shells and Mr. Dickin son.?The democratic soft shells up at Albany are very much concerned in relation to the question whothtr Daniel S. Dickinson has or bas not gone over to the Know Nothings. The softs may make themselves easy upon the Hibjcct. Whatever may come to pass, they will probably not be troubled with the com pany, hereafter, of either Mr. Dickinson or the hards. We presume that he is no more a Know Nothing than Gen. Cass; but it is very natural ihat. looking to the peace of the coun try, both thete old conservatives should prefer ihe "Live Onk" platform of the Know Nothings, to the shattered and leaky free soil hulk of the Pierce democracy. Let the Albany soft shells piepaie for the worst. The New England Know Nothinos?A Movement in the Rioht Direction.?The con servatives, or Union meo, among the Know No things of Boston and its neighborhood, have abandoned the Seward coalition principles and projects of Senator Wilson & Co., and have fallen back upon a good stiff national platform, in which we find the following sticks of solid "live oak" timber:? III.?Ibe maintenance of the Union of theee United platan uthi paramount political good; or, to use the laDf unse of W ashington, "the primary object of pntrt otlc desire," and opposition to aU attempts to weaken or ""iV-^Obedlenco to the constitution of theao United States, at the enpreme law of lha land, sacredly obliga tory upon all Its parts and member*-avowing that in all doubtful or disputed points it mar only be le|aUv ssceitalned end si pounded by the judicial power of the t nlted^B a 0f ^e rights of the esreral States aeexpmsed and reserved in the constitution, and a careful avoidance by tha general government of all In terfmnce with their rights by legislative action.

This is the cream of the Philadelphia national platform In is diffusing itself. With such leaven at work already in Massachusetts, there will snzely be found enough elsewhere in the North to ''leaven the whole lamp." No doabt the anti-slavery intractables, demagogues and fanatics will be slouvhed elf; but the camp will be thereby purified, and a sound and healthy, powerful and homogeneous national party will be the result. The leaven is work ing, and the bread ?ill be ready for bak'tag by the time the oven is hot. Keep up the fire! Kitchen Cabinet Arrangements.?A short time ago the Concord Patriot. Mr. Pierce's home organ, put forth the name of Col. Greene of the Boston Post, as tne man that would most ikely be appointed successor to Mr. Buchanan, as our Minister to Ecgland, " Yon tickle me, and I tickle you" Accordingly, Col. Greene nominates Mr. Pierce as the proper democratic candidate for 1856. Well, If the remains of the Pierce democracy can re-elect their man, we promise Col. Grtene and >he Kitchen Cabi net lhat he shall go to England. A bargain's a bargain. Clergymen Among the Loafers.?Weshould think that the preaching of the Gospel is very much overdone, or that religion has fallen he low par, from the numbers of clergymen that are dropping in among the orators at our po litical meetings, especially in the discussion of the virtues of a liquor prohibition, and cold water upon compulsion. Why don't these rev erend gentlemen join the Carson League at once, and share some of the profits of its spies and inforae/8? According to the decree of Mayor Wood, there will be plenty of work for them all. Balaam's Ass Opening His Mouth.?Thurlow Weed, for the first time, and probably the last, haB declared that George Law is a candidate for the Presidency ; bat that he is only the Hindoo candidate. The venerable ass of Ba laam, after a good deal of belaboring, spoke out upon one occasion, and then he lapsed again into bray ing. Such are 1 he coincidences of his tory. THE LITEST NEWS, BY MAGNETIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPHS. Iiitercitlng from Washington. OUB RELATIONS WITH FRANCS?THE DILLON CASE ? WILL THE ADMINISTRATION BaGK DOWN??NEW ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF STATE. Washington, Jane 29,1855. Since my communication of yesterday I have been enabled to obtain some more specific Information regard ing the purport of Mr. Mason's last despatches to th* government. It appears that the diplomatic correspon dence which ba< taken place between our Minister at Paris and Count Walewski, has relation principally to the unsettled difficulty ezistiog between this country and France in conns ctlim with the arrest of M. Dillon, the French Consul at San Francises. Count Walewski, lt seems, still insists upon the original redress demand ed by his government?that of our saluting with a salvo of one hundied guns the Consul's flag. The President, General Davis, and some other members of the adminis tration, are opposed to this concession bring made, bat Marcy is in favor of it. He quotes in support of his opinion the precedent established in the instance of the Spanish Consul at New Oilcans, although I confess I cannot see mnch analogy between the two cases. Some warm discussions and altercations have taken place In the Cabinet on the subject; but if Marcy remains firm General Pieree will, as usual beat a retreat. It will be shameful if, in the case of a person like Dillon, who, It is alleged, connived at, If he did not directly assist In, a violation of our laws, the government should consent to make a concesiicn which will be taken as an acknowl edgment of his Innorenrc I an informed tbat a successor to Dudley Mann in the State department has at last been found. Gen. J. Addi son Thomas, of New York, is the man. Although he ia now in Paris with bis family, he may be considered the Aasietant Secretary of State Gen. Thomas was ooce in the army, and was in favor of the election of Gentral Taylor in 1848. He was tbe American Consul attached to the Hoard of Claims sitting lsst^rssr in London in adjudication on the s ave cases, for which servioe Con gress paid him 812,f>00 by special appropriation.

The developments thus far presented, of our policy with ths wholo of Europe, aed the South American governments, must fall is importance when the whole truth shall be made public History wi'l have furnished no parallel to the imbecility and studied corruption of the Pieros administration. You will have the plain tale from Soule, in which will be opened to oar senies the thrice refused possession of Cuba by the double dealings of Maroy and Pierce.

A fur ther insight into this " frienely feeling*' of England and France can be adduced,Jtnd may have its Interest Upon the v?ry day that (lea. C?z;nean demanded bie pass - port, the British and Freich representatives ascertain ing the fact, demanded the immediate dismissal from the republic of the efficient .Secretary of Stat-, the Presi dent ? chief adviser, who was known to have favored Gen.
