The means whereby be has attained this lead me to assume that all stratagems are lair In war. 1 suppose Mr. liuchanan believes himself quite justiaod Id the course he has pursued.

OAKKISON'S STATLMKNT TO T1IB PUBLIC. No. 6 Bow uno Gkkkn, N?w York, Sept. a, 1868. I would not Intrude myself before the public, nor con descend to reply to ex-Mayor Garrison'scard, published in the Bi iuui this morning, but for the fact that my name is prominently attached to the complaint of the Transit Company; the charges In which he so flatly and unblush ingly denies, list the impression may obtain that 1 have wilfully and falsely sworn to a complaint of great magni tude, or have permitted myself to be made a tool of, to aid others to gratify personal malice, 1 do not feel at liberty to permit Mr. Garrison's card to go unrcplied to. He i. ?ert? tl:at the cha-ge that ho wo* removed from the agency is lalse. If he had waited a little while, his ad vices trom San Francisco would have enlightened him ou i bat point. He also states that repeated oilers and over lures were made to ludicehim to accept the reappoint ment us agent in Saja Francisco, alt of wbich he refused. In answer to that 1 will make a simple stateu. ut of facts. ? in the 14?b day of March last the company received cf.cial advic< s ot the action if the Rivas Walker givern mint, feeing their property and declaring tho charter annulled. i On the 20th of the name month I left for San Francisco, as f pedal apcut of the company. Up to that time 1 hid never been in a position to have- access t? the books and tapers ot the company. I bail 'or a 'ong time previous heard doubts expressed about the tl iclity of Mr. Garrison to tl e ci mjiatij 's interest*, but 1 bad no data upon which 1 could fix a nag'e charge ol fraud. 1 arrived In .N?n Francisco in April, thirteen days after the second period of Mr. Garrison'* agency had expired. 1 lound him acting in that capacity; and when I presented to hitu the letter from Mr. Vanderbllt, President of tho com pat y, t> nderlDg a cjutiauance ot tho at ncy on con dition tbat neither Mr. Garrison nor any ot his umily or house shculo have anything to do witn any other st^am t-h ps running in a hue between N< w York and Stn Fran cifc;-, he fr ely and without any reservation accepted the o(!i r and seemed to feel? and .je axpres ed hiuiselt? very grateful lor a continuance of the conldenae which Mr. V*nueibiit placed in hint when ho tirst took the agency o.' the company in Sau Frai cisco. I was rep;:itedly cautioned ? y my friends in that citv net to place too much reliance upou Mr. Harrison's pro ksHiois. jet I was induced to believe thut he would not while agent of the company do anything to prevent tbtm from recovering possession of their property ami returning operations andllsftSan Francisco with t-ie lulled poSkiblc assurances trom him tnat ho was and would remam faithful to interests. Ou my arrival in New York, there being a vacancy in tho direction of tt e comi>ai>y, I wis placed in the board, and was requested by the Protident to tnake certain in vesications of the books and p:ipers of the company for the purpose if enllghlenng him about certain matters wbicn had little <r no connection with any of the opera lions ol tbe S?n Francisco agency. During said investi gation 1 discovered some very queer a counts and vouch ers from that agency. As I proceeded in my labors, the conviction that gross frauds hau been perpetrated was irretistlbly forced upon me. 1 appealed to the Secretary, Mr., and ttked why it waj that sucb transactions, to unsatisfactorily explained, were permitted to pass through tbe books of tbe company Ills reply was. -'I protested and remon-trated time after time, but Charles Morgan, the President, and C. K. Garrison, had it all their own way; what could I dor" C'ur eyrs having been thus opened, the Investigation was panned in that direction, and resulted in our ob talcing irom 8a u Fraoclsco affidavits and vouchers from i mtribai.ts of the highest standing in that city, whih rails fled i^ that what wad before mere surmise was in tail true.

Concord and friendship with our Bister republics and foreign countries; order, pence and prosperity in the Interior ; guarantees for all, our population doubled, instruction geue-alized, wiso laws established, commerce augmented, agriculture from day to day improving, cities aggraadiied, public roads constructed, the State revenue* increasing, and in every thing our i>cople advancing with a regular and him step lit the path of prtsperity. The iudustrious spirit of the Costs Ricans, their love or order, their respect lor property, and the constant har mony existing between the nauon and government, were producing these happy Irults, when external events, ap

parently disastrous to Ceutr&l America, porhap* propl tlous to it according to the mystei ions plans of 1'rovldence, occurred to interrupt this peaceful and happy progress. You are all familiar with the scandalous events in Nlaa ragua, by which all Central American patriots have been ar juted to s vigilant solicitude. In spite of our constant principle of neutrality, the grave circumstances and im mment dangers which nave been threatening us since tne clote of last year decided public opinion to pronounce it self, to wage war iu-a net a band of adventurers, who. rapidly Increasing in number and strength, in the miUsi of our states, are every where spreading alarm, and to res cue Nicaragua euslavid by them, and protect the exist ence and repose of our beloved country agtinst these fe lonious attari.H Well aware of the dangers which surrounded us, In con currence with the governments ol Cuatemala, San Sal vauor and Honduras, and supportel by a unanimous na tiocal teelicg, I convoked you, on the *^5th Ke >ruarv to nialte j ou acquainted with <>ur situation, in presence of those adventurers, who, cariegly provoking ?n, subju gated a neighboring State. Sharing my own convictions, you ves ed me with ample powei s to make war against ifccrn. At mj call our valiant aud brtve youth hasteuiv to enlist thernse ves under the tational banner. I'h u all was enthufianui, rejoicings and patriotism. It was the tlrettime that, in CeLtral America, a war, not condemn" 1 by rtaKon and humanity, was undertaken. Thu- our de cifcion was highly applauded both at homo and abroad The cntmj , kitg since resclved upon issailtng us. blinded by haughtiness and the unaccountable icirn with woich he rigarded us, invaded our territory there the Or-ti blood was spilt, and in Santa It >p:i our arms won tho tlrsi laurels in tho disastrous defeat and llight of the tllibu^Ur*. Provoked, invaded and triurnpbint, >t ?ra neither honorable nor possible lor us to wait fur auxiliaries or allies. Ws con lnued oar victorious march, and, (ii the 9th of April, we were mast rs of the porta o Sun ,Tmu del Sur aud Ia Virgen, and of tho Importan city of Hivas A m? ntb after oar leaving this capital, tie kty of the transit between the Pacific and Atlaun was in our hands, and the highway of Qiibastor ir-m was broken up.

Ol the allied forces we no news. !' would have been rash for us either to advance or to stij in that iulected city, destitute of all resources and just ??? the comtneuccmt ut of the sickening season of rains. \\"? w ere, therefore, obliged to retreat, postponing the end o the campaign, but leaving our terrified enemies duU cliaHi?ed, and at a great distance trom ours, their bar in nan haujhtinees humbled, the Nioaragutyw encourage 1 and grateful, aud our national honor solo.
