WisuiXGTOir, Dec. 16, 1867. To TUf f>CS. A. !l SlKl'ltfc.NS:? ln?A"R Smk ? In conformity with your expires desire, I "h<g loavo to wiclcso some notes on Cenixal American matters. Yon will perceive from their perusal that the bulkof the population of Central America is Indian? an lnclUn not resembling the Indian of the North American MBtinent? tranter, remade and savage ? but of the race Uut Cortet., Piz.trro and the Spanish conquerors found? bubariairi! , it if* (rue, but a stationary, agricultural i>eo yie docile, patient, industrious and superstitious, who had buuH Iue) e cities and raised stupendous temples, on whose altars smoked indeed the blood of human victims. The rest of the population, which may amount to from ono quartr.r to one-third of the whole, consists of the admixture of Sprjiish, Indian ami negro blood, mingled and re-intcr mingled in every imaginable decree. The prtre Indian rants are the people wiio c.uvate tho soil, who produce, wba bare never had any share in government, and who arc dragged (ax successive factious are ascendant) from lbeir willing labors to tight for the mixed race. This nixed racc is in a ytatc of rapid moral and physical de generacy. A large majority are bom with th<^ taint of hereditary disease, and the incessant revolutions since the Spaniards were driven out, tho general decay of cities, of ngricultnre, of industry and of population, the abandon ment cf plantations and of mines, attest how utterly vi sionary 18 the ide^)hat any self amelioration can be ex pected. - I have no hesitation in putting on record my conviction that five years after tiiat country is Ameri Mailed , as some <lay >t will be. its production in sugar and coirec will ap proach or equal that of Cuba at present; and that its mine ral products will fall little short of that of California now. 1 say, sir. Americanized, referring to our own people; because, with an instiuct prophetic of their destiny, this m the t rm My which the Spanish and Indian races desig nate them ' yet, it by any great convulsion of naturo those races could be totally cut oil' from communication with the people of the United St ttes, it is my tiriu belie! that in fifty years ? and probablv within half that period ? the mixed ran-s would be entirely wqwid out by the Christianized Indian, and the l'li#!tiaiiized Indian, in turn, conquered and assimilated by tho uild heathen ludian. In Guatemala, which alone contain" half the population of Central America, this is already ob\ ious. The Indium. tinny years av o, w. r< tmif frtTMHd i rom exterminating the mixed population because Carrera. himself an Indian, was (rained over by i he clergy, and by a few families who bare bowed to his despotism because he can hold the thristuunzed Indians in check. But in the rear of tliese arc the jwgan Ma) a Indians, who have swept through Yucatan, devastating nearly every town, occupying nearly every |>oition of its territory, and by whom the Christianized Indians will be as certainly subdued and ab porbed as the mixed race rooted out eventually by thcnii I need not remind vou that :n the Mcxjran territories tho ravage m everywhere steadily encroaching on the 'j)'cle civilization of Mexico. A small portion of tbia mixed race in Central America, m bethel the main partien into which they are divided, are :ucural>lc factionistn, wboae trade ia revolution There however, a majority fully aware of the facts to which I have been adverting, and who look to the Atneri caiuxatk*) of the country a." the only hope of averting its decline utter barbarism and ruin. One of these par ties hi designated the democratic, the other hits accepted the appellat:on. originally given to it by U? adversaries, of Mrvile. When the Spaniards were ilrivcn out the for mer prcvaili (1 in Nicaragua, hut in the reaction, conse quent <? its excei en, the aerrllee ? that is to say, the old aristocratic families. the employes of the Sp inifh govern ment and their friends, representing exactly what w;ut represented in thi* country t>y the tories in the war of independence? obtained t!io ascendancy, were again overturned and again established, through a countless series o." revolutions, always in a dimuiii^fg minority ; till, through recent events nudw^ lor '^Jwititerference, that servil" party, represented by the government of Mart me*, and dwindled <lown to a mere taction, is temi>o rarily established ? is to say. draws men and re sources from about one third of the country. It would no doubt tie highly desirable, in a plulanthrn pic point of v.ew , if by the contrivanoe of tiigeuioua diplo ntcjf these politician- atid parties in Central America, and (??mm regions. could be induced to subside into a united happy family till the settlement of the country by colonists from the I'nited States should so far have pro gnmed as to infuse a controlling amount of practical sense, enterprise and vigor into those countries . but the idea is mere than dtluiive. If the native governments could ?tand. the men in power, as all experience, as their own mts ai d proclamation* show, are bent on excluding Am* r " nns Where in th< history of the last twenty years has any colony of UaMed stales citiaetM been established ?iy pai Hie, develop' ment in any of the Spanish Amerian eca* tries' What foothold . w hat security for life or pro perty have they now on the Isthmus of Vainma, lieyond what the guns of a United Stat* squadron afford them.

The (.-round I MNMl in a recent letter to the H >n.

[Correspondence of the Picayune.] Plata Aiucnan, orrosiTK Gkt*tow.n, Nicaragua, \ Monday, Nov. 30, 1867. ) Yesterday the English mail steamer came In from Aepmwall. ' 1 was over at Greytown when the first boat came off. Thei e appeared to be a very great anxiety to learn what intelligence she brought. The bouse of the English Consul was surrounded by a large crowd of every hue and color, as though ea.-h one expected tidings of the most important moment. Upon listening to the various groups ;is they left the Consul's house, I learned that it had been expected that General Walker would bo seized as a prisoner as goon as the English steamer cane, and be sent back to the States. I could easily see disappointment depicted on the countenances of nearly all the bona fid !e inhabitants of the place, go soon as they learned that their expectations were not to be realized. Before I left, in the evening, it was reported that an English war vessel was to be sent for, which wan to urreet General Walker. (This is confirmed in part by our Asplowall corres pondence. | Mr. Cottrel, Uie American Commercial Agent for Grey town, who has been down to Aspinwall, came back on the mail steamer. 1 beard hinfsayhe was very mush sur prised to ye c the Nicaraguan flag floating upon tho Point. He brought the intelligence thai the Fulton was or had been at Cbiriqui, watching to prevent Gen. Walker from landing at Rcco del Tnro, which is in Costa Rica. The cap tain Of the Fulton gave it as his opinion tliat Qta, Walker would not be able to leave the United States. Having been thus assured, one can well imagine Mr. Cottrell's surprise on limling Gen. Walker in position upon the Point, with his tanners floating in the breeze. Today the captain of the {Saratoga took part iu what is considered by all whom I have heard speak of it us a ridiculously small matter. It appears the English Consul is very anxious to send forward the mail for Costa Kica by way of the river. I.aat night a council was held, com posed of J. Squire Cottrell, American Commercial Agent; Pr. Green, English Consul, and Capt. < liatard, of the Sara toga, to devise some means ol getting said mail forwarded. After long and serious deliberation, it was finally deter mined that Capt. Chatard should address a note to Gen. Walker, requesting hint to permit the Oosta Rican mail to pass up the river, and that said note should be sent under the seal of the English Consul. They no doubt thought this would tickle General Walker ? that he would not hesi tatc a moment about granting the request. They wcro all anxiety this morning to have this note reach General Walker at the earliest possible moment. Colonel Bruno Natzmer being over at Greytown at an eariy hour, volun teered to carry the despatch to the General, suppling, from the anxiety of the English Consul, that it contained matter of vast im|<ortance. I 'pon its reception the General had a hearty laugh over the contents, and stated that he had no reply u> make. And here the matter ended. This afternoon three middies came off from the Sara toga, to the wharf nearly iu front of the General's quarters, where a sentinel is i stated, with instructions tin allow no boat* to land without first liaiiing and bringing them to a halt, tint.! the officer of the day gives them per mission to land. The middies, when hailed, replied that they were American officers, and referred the sentinel to the officer of the day for instructions as to his duty in such riuws. They landed without farther parley. The officer of the day came, but instead of instructing the sentry that "American officers" had exclusive privileges, he very |h> litely requested the middies to withdraw from the line of encampment Tlicy wanted to know if it was an order. If it was. they would remain until forced to leave. They were informed thtt it w as not an order, but a simple re quest : and further, that if they came again in like manner, without General Walker's permission, the sentry would be instructed to lire. They left, muttering about General Walker's right to |iossession of the Poiut. and making somebody smell hell. In tbe afternoon, at a later hour, two Jamaica negroes raine up in a liungo. anil *tated that they ha<l l*en sent i>y the captain of the Saratoga to i iiidi' iuhI demand pay Tor wood burnt by his men statioeed on the low. r ?-n<1 oi tho Point. The General declined paying until the demand was made out in a legal form, and (worn to by 8>>mc responsi ble jhttob. A brig came into the harbor a nbort time before torn down, with tbe old democratic flag of Nic-artfeua Hying from on.' of Iter masts Supposing that she had on lM*rd another lot of Gen. W?lkcr'< uien. tbe ca|itam of tho Saratoga manned three of bis boats . into one of which be placed a bow i'xer and put out to annihilate the brig, if ? he was what he had supismed her to be. Rut when bm boats got up to the brlf. ?he turned out to be a Sardinian vessel. Here was a great waste of valorooa intention. 1 neglected to mention in a pre v mm* inter that the captain brought tbe Saratoga's broadside to boar u|*?n the Kanhion the first day after we landed. It is generally known thai the men under Lockrtdge seized the arms and ammunition used by that command on the river, and pledged them to Scott for their pawago home to the State* It' Costa Rica paid the amount lor which they wen' pledged, the was to take the arm*, and I believe (ten Walker WM to l>e allowed the privilege of redemption Brer since they have remained in the build ings of the Transit company, until to day, when tbe art. I lery waf taken on board the Saratoga, whether to strengthen the armament of that % esael . or prevent Oeu. Walker from seizing them, deponent saith not. It is rumored that a despatch has been sent for tbe Wabash, new at Aspitiwall, to come to this port imme diately. ! hope she may come Com.

ITtta Arsbas, Nov. .'Mi, 1867. We have to day intelligence eonllrmatory of the reports from Castillo. sun Carlos and lake Nicaragua Ool c. K. Canty, who is in command of the Costa Rican force*, was in i*ia?ea*k* of Fort Oaatlllo and all the river boats and lake steamers. He is on the lake, in oonuasnd of the ?learner N?n Qftlas. Having both aides of Port San tfcrli* blockaded, he demanded the surrender of the fort, with tho honors of war, promising a free pas itge to the com aaadtr and his troo|? to any POM they mlglit designate Nothing is said about Cauiy's condition, or that bin steamer had been fired into at Granada. Tho fact is.

Taking everything into consideration, General Walker could not possibly have arrived at a iwUer time, no fkr as his suc cess is concerned. It is said that the democrats of Nica ragua are taking but little part in the war against Costs Rica. Jeret la rcmainimng quietly in I>eon FIIIBPSTERIBM AKI> TUB CL ATTON-BTI.WER TREATY AS V llwn IN FRANCS. The Jturnal tlrg /vfal* of November 30 expresses the convictM* that tbe federal officers in New Orleans have acted in complicity with General Walker in alio* tag him to depart. It Walker, says the writer, had stolen the purer of an inhabitant of NVaragaa, ih<?ic very magi? irate* would have convicted him with contempt Ho leaves, however, nnder their eyee to steal from Nlesra gua ber Independence and her "nationality, and they shut Iheir eyes so that thev may not s?-e him /.a Prttm I* of opinion that tbe government of the United state* haa been wrongfully accused oi complicity with the flhhusters. According to thai journal the admlnlrtrntion has been unable to pre vent Walker's departure, liecanes the federal legislatiin is more eareful to guarantee tbe liberty of the citi/en than the power of the executive, and also because the govern men! finds itself disarmed in presence of public opinion, which openly conspires will tbe future conquerors It Is as tanpiwefble to stop the filibusters In tbe South a? to ar re?t the fugitive slave* st the North where every one bides and secretly defends them An article la the fmt. gays the Paris of ltecsabsr4, showed us vesterdav that the treaty entered into between Ihe I'nlted .Stales and Nicaragua has caused a good deal of dissatisfaction In Kngland, and particularly , judging from appearances to l/ird I'almerston, whosn ofgan that Journal is. The proviso by winch the I'nlted Slates promise to the republic of Nicaragua the active ser vice oi American fotiVs in case of attack, has basa viewed in U>ndon as a \lolatkm of the famous Clayton- Balwvr trialy.

Result of the Action of the Naval < onrte of Inquiry. We published in the Hjaum yesterday tbo result of the action ol the three Naval Courts appointed to inquire Into the decisions made by the Naval Rotiring Board in the cases of the Captains, Commanders, Lieutenant*) and other o dicers of the United States Navy who were either re tired on leave, on furlough, or who were "dropped"' ul together from the service. The act under which the Board was constituted became a law on the '28th of Fobru ary, 1855, having on that date received the approval of the President, and on the 20th of June the new naval in quisition, consisting of the following editors, went into session:? CAPTAINS. Wm. B. Shubrick, C. K. Stribling, Matthew C. Terry, Abraham Bigelow, Charles MtCauley. cokxamier*. 0. J. Pendergast, Samuel Barron, Frauklin Buchanan, Andrew n. F>ote, .Samuel J. I)u I'ont. ILECTBN ANT-l John S. Mlssroon, Win. 1,. Maury, Kicurd L. Pago, .las. S. Piddle, Hytvanus W. Godon. The Board remained in session from the '-'Oth of June, 1866, till the 26th of July of the name year, and in that time decided upon the c-o. es of no less than two hundred and st Neulten officers. A nice calculation of the work performed during this session shows that the Board gavo an average of twelve minutes and forty seconds to the case of each officer, furnishing one of the m06t remark able cases of judicial expedition perhaps on record. The summary action of this Naval Court? unencum bered a* it was by the regular forms of trial, the sum moning of witnesses or the rebutting evidence of the par ties tried, none of whom were allowed to appear or liad any notice that they were on secret trial? aroused a strong feeling ol indignation throughout the country. The officers who had been removed from the active list presented memorials and petitions to Congress protecting against the action of the Hoard, and demanding the appointment of a court of inquiry to adjudicate U|?on their several cases At the head of the list of complain ants stood Commodore Stewart, or, as he is familiarly called, " Old Ironsides," who refused to permit hia case to go before a court ol' inquiry, but who determined on presenting it U> Conn ess only. There were among the names a large number of others, who, by their gallant services, had acquired a high reputation in our naval annals, and who were certainly entitled to a fair and open trial. After due consi<leratiou of their jietitions, aud in view ol the justice of their demands, Congress punned an act for the appomtmeut ol a court of inquiry, which weut into session on the 20th of February, 1867. Two others were subsequently ap|>ointed. and it lia? taken the three nearly the whole of the present year to Investigate and adjudicate u|?on all the caaea winch were disponed of by the Naval Retiring Board during the brief spat e of ouo month. The following tables give the result of their uc tion in regard to the officers retired on leave, the officers furloughed, and t nose who have be-u dropped from the navy list altogether. The asterisks show those who have been restored to the active list, the daggers those who have been removed from the furlough Mat aud re tired on leave, the double daggerthose who have been re im ui ted from the list of drop(ied and put on furlough, while the section indicates those in whose coses the tiuu ings have not yet been notitied to the department : ? * RETIRED ON LEAVE. umim Entry ?n Entry on \awir.

The Persia was moored in tho immediate vicini ty of the Adriatic, thus affording a favorable opportuu.ty for contrasting the two vessels. Among the matters of political importance maybe moti oned the case of au American citizen ? Mr. Maillard ? whose property, purchased by public auction at a place called Moyno,in Queens county, Ireland, waa taken pos session of, and is still withheld from him, by a lawless mob. Mr. Maillard, it may he remembered, applied to the Irish government for the assistance of the civil power to enable him to obtain the cattle he had bought. 1 laving failed iu this by the adroit use on the other side of su)h> rior personal influence and official circumlocution, ho ap plied to the American Consul at Dublin, Mr. .lamed Arrot, who, on inquiring into Jlr. Maillard'* complaint, was sufl! i lently rati? lied that he had been treated with great injus tice and oppression, as to justify the application (in his of tie utl capacity as Consul) to the Irish executive to obtain or re-cie Mr. Maillard's property from the hands of the mob. Tins application of the Consul was refused on the most shallow and insufficient pretexts. Mr. Maillard is, therefor*', about to submit the history of this affair, to ;;ether with the official carrespootonoe of the Consul with the Irish government, to Congress, and to petition both houses for an official inquiry into the whole of the cir cumstances or this must singular affair, and such reli'T nnd protection a.s C'ungre s may think him entitled to. In the meantime Mr. Maillard's case may woll lie brought beTore the House or Representatives by an able advocate, and cannot Tall to crcate considerable interest. a? both house* or the legislature may possibly think tins a proper opportunity oT removing the ambiguity in which the rights- and safrty oT British subjects who become Amen can citiions are at pre*ont enveloped.

THE WAR IN INDIA. A despatch from Cagliari to th" British government annciinces the arrival at Suez of the stoamer Oriental (not the regular mail steamer), with Calcutta dates to Not. 1? one week later. Two convoy* of provisions had arrived safely at I.uck now, where Havelock wan still surrounded by large num ben of the. enemy, who were laid to hav> 300 gum. There had been some severe fighting, and General Outrara was reported to have been wounded. Kir Colin Campbell and stall' loft Nomwoor lor Cawnpore on the IfUh of October, to which place the troops were being moved up an quickly as jiossible, and would pro cood to the relief of l.ucknow when in sufficient strength The arrival out of several additional troop ships Is reported. Lord Palme niton , in announcing this news to the House of Commons, said he feared it was but the echo of the last message relating to the convoy which had reached, not l.ucknow, hut Alumhagh. (From the London Times, Dec. 8. | The intelligence received last night at the Foreign office from the seat of hostilities iu British India, may be summed up in a lew words. The beleaguered garrison of l.ucknow was still holding out. Two convoys of provisions had been conducted safely to that place. Sir Colin Campbell himself had left Calcutta in order to preside over the. ope rations in person, and all the available Rritisb troops wero being moved up with all imssible des|>utoh. This intelli gence covers the stab' of facts until the end of October, and doubtless in speculating on the event we are treating of a foregone conclusion. Hrfort this d eta itch had. reached as Lurk new had either fallen or it had been nlieved. It was not in the nature of things that tb" siege yhouM be protracted indefinitely, as wan the case with that of'Deibi. In this instance w oarc dealing with known forces. Could the defenders ol l.ucknow hufjiold out for a tew weeks after the date of the des|iatch there would be on the ground a huropean force which, added to the strength of the be leaguered garrison, would be amply sufficient to deal with the rebels on fair lighting ground. Tin- point is one upon which any man may fbrui his opinion, for there is no con cealment ol I acts, nor any mystery about their import. Three thousand desperate and disciplined British troops are,, or were}Jt0htivg for th< ir I ire a in the midtl of a native army ly all art-mint .< nows30,000 or 40,000 strung The ad vantage of position was on the side of the British, for, al though the works and buildings they occupied would have presented no very Insurmountable difficulties to a besicg ing army of Knropc u>s, it is well nigh superfluous to say that when Hie besiegers are Asiatics ? even disciplined Asiatic.-? the case is w idely different. Ill the despati li we have received it is mentioned that according to gene ral rt |>ort the Indians iiad with them some three hundred t,uns. This number is no doubt greatly exaggerated. Considerable allowance, too, must be made for "telegraph guns' and other implements of the like kind, which, however formidable in appearance, would not, in all probability , add materially to the difficulties of tie- be sieged force. Still, when all due deductions are made, it is very likely that the rebels had w itli them a very nu merous and powerful artillery. The foot being so, wncan afferd to look it boldly in the face, for it is not w itbin our experience that an Indian force, ungutded by huropeana and unassisted by Earojpaan cembatnnts, could manage to carry such a business as the & terming ol itelhi to a success ful issue. Now, there can be no reason to doubt that the resistance offered by our countrymen m Lucknow will have been as desperate as any recorded in the military nnnals oi any nation. Not only m their case can wo de p* nd u)sm the inherent courage ol Kuglishmco, and upon ihc warlike ability oi their chief, but we know thai there is not a man among them who is not fully aware that the option is between defence to the last and death iu the most i rue! form at the hands of the rebels if tlie> are conquered. un the whole, there seems little reason to doubt that if their provisions hold out the garrison of Lucknow will be able to maintain their position until the arrival of relief. There was uo complaint of any want of arms, mi. munition, or any of the maltiiel of war. The i|urotion was simply one of fisni. We cannot unfortu nately, add one word of e.\plau,ltiou to the brief an nouncement of the telegraph, that two convoys of pro visions ban reachcd the tow n in safety. It would only seem probable that had these convoys dm incousldera hie or uuimportant, the intelligence ol their arrival would not have lieeti trim- nutted from the oilier side at the globe But il they he of sufficient magnitude, as seems probable, to have afforded substantial relief to th" besieged, it fol lows that they canuot he so straitened by the hostile leaguer as to render their resistance at all a hopeless one. The last days of a besieged garrison can scarcely have ai rived when two heavy convoys are safely passed through the besieging force. We may odd to these aaoertalaed facts and to this reasoning upou ascertained fart- , that time was working heavily ill favor of the liesetged and to tho prejudice of the besiegers. The de?|ienite character of the mutiuN and the conviction of its ultimate and speedy failure must have occurred very forcibly to the minds of the great bulk of the mutineers. Delhi iiad fallen, and they km w il indeed, many of tiiem must have been refu gees from the captured city. They knew, too, Inst the masses of the mutineers hi their flight, wherever they bad i?'< n encountered by tho avenging foroaa of the British, had b? en scattered to the w lads, and thai such of tliem as hsd escaped had only found their safety In a race for life. I hey knew, too. Uiat British troops by hundreds and by t hoii- snds had arrived and wort arm ing at Calcutta, iirnl were on their way to the ground before l.ucknow. They knew, finally, that il a day should ever come when Uiey were to meet the reliev Ing lorce ill the open field they hsd but little mercy tocxp'tt from the troops who hail come expressly to exact a dire retribution for the I stat. The country behind them was o|ieu for 'light and had the thunder < loud was gathering in their front We cannot, of course, know what is tho nature of lie authority to which they have submitted l be owe Ives, but tear s-r.iri e|y yet iiave Iiad j time to i onsohdato itsell suffie '-uliy to keep together huge | masses of men who must, before all tb ngs tx- concerned each mau for his personal safety. It is oue thing to maintain authority ms beeiaged town, as at iHdbi. and quite another to enforce obedience in the open field wbere the rotids for i s? ape are ojien on all sides save one. We have the further graitfkatsui ot know ing that the com in?It si inns were entirely free from Caluatta to Cawu l?re, and Irom Cawopore to within three miles of Luck now . Along three open roads tlie British were advancing wben the despatch was transmittal! . It is difficult to an Bounce with precision the number of irisi|M adually land ed at Cat) uit* sines the first reinforci meuts, hut, assum . ng that all the ship" mentioned in the des|*itch as "spoken With had arrived, we may reckon upon aadi lions or ;i,ooo or 4,000 mora to tlie British troops actualijr In hand, if remains only to add that tlie telegraph brins* a re|s>rt a Inch we most earnestly tre-t is unfounded ? to the ef|e> i tLst General Outrun bis been ? wound "d iu ac tion with the enemy.
