Gub News of this morning goes to show that the republican government of Spain is likely after all to find itnelf strong enough to put down the Carlists. On Saturday a battle was fought in the province of Barcelona, in which the Carlists, led by Tristauy and Don Alfonso, were completely defeated. After a fight which lasted several hours the Carlists fled, the government troops pursuing them as far as Monistrol de Caldens. According to an other despatch General Nonvillat, with twelve thousand men, holds nil the mountain passes in Biscay, and is driving the Carlists in that province towards the coast. It is stated also, the best authority, that in Barcelona, the great stronghold of the federal republicans, the various republican factions have sunk their distinctive views and formed a common onion against the monarchists. With all these facts before us it is not wonderful that the Carlists begin to show signs of demoral ization. Dorregaray has hitherto enjoyed the reputation of being one of the ablest, as he was one of the moat fearless of the Carlist commanders. It now appears that, in conse quence of recent defeats, Dorregaray has been deprived of his command. For the momeni it must be admitted that the governmen troops are master of the situation. In a da; or two we shall know the character and com position of the Constituent Cortes. Mean while it is safe to say that the opening speed of President Figueras was confident that th< election of Orecse as President of t]^e Cortej revealed rtjniblican strength, and that tin victories of the government troops iuspirei '* I<sniiUB?>OoT?rnor Heln* ery's Addreaa to the People?Good Advice for the Two Races Throngh* out the Booth. We are gratified with the intelligence of an address of Governor McEnery to the people of Louisiana counselling submission to Gover nor Kellogg, because we hold it as the procLa mation of an armistice which restores peace to that unhappy State. True, this address is a sharp indictment of the Kellogg government as a fraud and a usurpation, and an indict ment against the President as exercising the arbitrary powers of a despot in upholding Kellogg and his associate officials; but, never theless, in advising the people to obey the orders of the President, embodied in his late proclamation in support of Kellogg, Governor de facto, we are well convinced that McEnery, Governor de jure, has pursued the only course of wisdom under the circum stances, and that peace and law and order are thus restored to Louisiana. Since Novem ber last the State has not only been demoral ized in all its political, social and business relations from this embittered conflict botween Kellogg and McEnery, but has been menaced repeatedly with that worst phase of a civil war, a war of racea This announcement of a j truce, therefore, from McEnery we hail as eminently wise and opportune, for the simple reason that it means a suspension of warlike resistance to Kellogg and a return to tho ways of peace. But tho Governor thrown out retires with an indignant protest against the Governor estab lished in powor, which shows that the contest between tho belligerents is not ended, but only transferred to another field of action. Mr. McEnery complains "that the President is resolved, at all hazards and at all costs, to sustain, by the military arm of the nation, the present usurpation of the State government, ushered into existence by the midnight order of United States District Judge Durell, ex ecuted by United States bayonets, and pre sided over by Mr. William Pitt Kellogg;" "that you (the poople) are required by the President to view with calmness and resigna tion the overthrow of the legal government of your State," and to accept a State establish ment "whose only title to office rests upon the returns of a returning board without a single official return or vote before it to canvass or count, and predicating its illegal action upon affidavits, in many cases forged, certificates, statements, census returns," Ac.; that the President has the power to enforce his man dates, but that the people, nevertheless, will find some vent for the expression of their sentiments against "the vilest usurpation ever attempted to be fastened upon freemen ;" and Mr. McEnery advises them to give "these manly and patriotic sentiments form and shape through all moral and legal agencies possible to be devised." These are manifestly tho expressions of a man who believes himself and his political supporters wronged beyond lorgiveness through the decisive intervention of the Presi dent in support of the other side. Mr. McEnery, therefore, in reference to *hiu imbroglio, has said nothing more, perhaps, than any Lonest and earnest man would say reduced to similar extremities. We think, however, that in giving no quarter to the President he fails to present the case upon its exact merits. The President, upon the de cision ol Judge Durell, recognized the Kellogg government' He submitted the facts to Con gress at the late session, with an urgent appeal for a settlement of the Louisiana entangle ment by the two houses, notifying them, at the same time, that if they failed to reach a settle ment in some way he should adhere to and sustain the Kellogg government The two houses failed to reach a settlement The Senate, from its ablest men on both sides, appointed a special committee of inves tigation on the subject, but after the investigation was made, the conflicting reports from the committee so befogged and bewildered the Senate that it threw up the case i^i despair, thus virtually authorizing the President to maintain his position. Under these circumstances no other course could have been reasonably expected of the Presi dent than that of adherence to Kellogg. His consistency in this course is maintained throughout, and he is fortified by the decisions of the Courts having jurisdiction in the prem ises and in tha virtual approval of Congress. In our judgment the decision of Judge Durell, of which Mr. McEnery complains, was proved in the Senate to be a mockery of justice ; in our judgment the Kellogg government was not elected by the people, and wo hold that Congress in shirking this question betrayed ita want of confidence in Kellogg's election ; but still, in throwing the whole burden of the responsibility of action upon the President's shoulders, Congress left him only the course be has pursued. Approaching next the practical and essential matters of Mr. McEnery's address, first, in reference to the President's proclamation, he says:?"I counsel and advise you (the people of Louisiana) to obey this peremptory order of the President" Next, after recommending a continued expression of opposition to Kel loKR'8 government "through all moral and legal agencies possible to be devised," he says that in the meantime "I trust that peace and order may reign supreme throughout the State and that all our industrial pursuits will be unembarrassed by political difficulties," and, he continues, "especially do I urge upon the people of the two races, who are numeri cally nearly equal in this State, to cultivate, the one towards the other, nothing but feel ings of amity, good feeling and a mutual un derstanding." These good words are fitly spoken. Nor do they stop here. Mr. McEnery says further, "the fears and prejudices that have been instilled into the mind and heart of the colored man against his white neighbor should give place to reason and judgment if the poople of the white race are frank and open in their avowals to concede to the colored race all the rights guaranteed to them under the law.'' In fine, good will and harmony be tween the two races, "indissolubly united with the fate of Louisiana," are urged as essential to the safety and good order of the commu nity and to the prosperity of State. These seasonable counsels to the whites and blacks of Louisiana, in connection with the advice of submission to the powers that be, cannot fail in good results. Tho late mngui nary affrjr i# Qjant pftr^Jj was tho kindling of A Wsif Of races, which needed, perhaps, only a little industrious fanning on both sides in order to spread tho flame into a reign of fir0 auj blood throughout the State. Anything but that Bhould be accepted as a ohoioe of evils by whites aud blacks, not only in Louisiana, but throughout the 8outh. The idea which was universal among the Southern whites under the institution of negro slavery, that the two races, on a footing of political equality, can not live together, is not yet extinct; but it is fading away. The black JEtepublio of Liberia owes existence to this idea. Henry Glay de voted the best energies of many years to the African Colonization Society, in view of the ultimate restoration to Africa of our black population with the abolition of slavery, be cause he was satisfied that, in the mass, whites and blacks could not here exist together in peace, except as masters and slaves. President Lincoln, under similar convictions, looking to the abolition of slavery, thought that the Central American States offered a mora convenient asylum to our colored people than the distant colony of Liberia; but the fiiteenth amendment has practically solved the problem against both Liberia and Central Amcrica, for the idea that the de.stiny of the two races in this coun try is "iudissolubly united" now prevails through all our Southern States. A paramount duty, then, resting upon the controlling white elements of the South, is the duty suggested by Mr. McEnery in the culti vation ot relations of good will and mutual confidence between whites and blacks. Un principled carpet-baggers have done a world of mischief in their efforts to establish a dis tinct political party of the blacks against the whites. The Ku Klux Klan (now it is to be hoped extinct) did much mischief for a time in its senseless political persecutions of the blacks. Henceiorw.ird the leading white citi zens of the South should exert themselves to harmonize the two races politi cally, upon the broad ground that their material interests are blended, and that political organizations in the distinction of color are not needed, and are worse than use less for the maintenance of the fitteenth amendment. From Delaware to Texas we are glad to perceive the tendencies of the influen tial whites in this direotion. Rebel disabilities and the sore remembrances of the war have kept leading Southern men since the war too much in the background. Their disa bilities are now so far removed, and their political tuture is bo clearly indicated in the Union, that they have no longer an apology for indifference to the*- political affairs of their respective States. The case of Louisiana, as it stands, may not be an encouraging example of Southern restoration; but the only Bafety to the disappointed party, even in Louisiana, is submission to the powers that be, and an appeal for all grievances to the sovereign tribunal of the people. The Spring Meeting of the American Jockey Club. On next Saturday the lovers of flying horse flesh in Now York will stream outwards by the north to Jerome Park. There will be the acute being who knows the points of every horse upon the turf tread the same sward with the daintiest and simplest creatures ever robed in silk or grenadine, who can only dis tinguish the animals by the aid of a "card" and the jockey's colors. It is gratifying to think that this year the promise of fine run ning is greater than ever before. Never in American running annals has the enthusiasm of horse owners been so widely evoked. A better class of animals than in any previous year will be presented, and the glorious result of careful breeding and training made manifest. The mystery of "blood," as far as the horse is concerned, will be again investi gated, and when our darlings of the avenues and the Hill have learned to venture into discussions about sires and dams the interest in the racing will be dashed with a new spice. Sooth to say, the pet of the paddock, when the rough blanket is stripped from his shining coat, is an object on which the most demure little divinity that ever was bashful at a Ger man can lavish her admiration without any but delightful consequences. If she would only learn a little on the matter, so that her confidence in her opinion could not be easily shaken, what adroit flattery might not the otherwise innocent Augustus administer by agreeing with her! If their favorite won, how they could blend flushes and blushes over their perspicacity! If the wretched beast was distanced, how they could condole by blaming the jockey or sagely remarking that such ani such a "rftrain" could never be relied on# I The friendships ripened under the passing cloud of slight mischance are often the better for the flitting shadow. Of course it will be' very gorgeous next Saturday. A horse race is, perhaps, in itself one of the most cxciting popular amusements that can be participated in. The fact that for three thou sand years, perhaps longer, this sport has held its own against all changes, all inventions, all innovations, is a proof of it. Wo have no Homers now to give us nn ideal picture of hippie perfection in sonorous verse. The heavenly coursers of Achilles or those of im mortal strain yoked to the blazing chariot of the Sun are now but figures of symmetry, fire and fleetness, that fill us with a Vagus sense of equine speed and beauty, without teaching | us what a thoroughbred should be. That, in deed, cannot be taught out of books any mard^ than your clover virtuoso could have a lull ? idea of the power of the pianoforte without : hearing Rubinstein. A photograph of the mystic Bcssarabian, with a laudatory notice | on bis performance of the "Moonlight sonata," would not assist much in conveying the chaitfi of his playing. The racer may have his qual ities predicated from his pedigree, and an ? opinion founded thereon strengthened as he comes out for his preliminary gallop; but it is in the homestretch, with every muscle strained, his nostrils expanded and hiB feet scarce seeming to touch the earth, that judg ment must be given. The proof of the pud ding is in the eating, of the cigar in the smok ing, of the race horse in the "finish." No wonder that to witness the struggle be tween aristocrats of the animal kingdom all upper tendom should deck itself in costly raiment, put on its sweetost smiles and most suave of maimers. The being out of whom all ordinary enthusiasm has been refined, who can sleep during the finest sermon, chat during the singing of the "Casta Diva" or pass heedlessly by the glowisg canvas of a mas ter, rarely iails to experience an cxhilnrating thrill as the silken-coated kings and princes of the turf sweep by at whirlwind speed in a gorgeous phantasm of color to the winning post. Bat mere is something wanting to a race course that even the presence of wealth and fashion cannot give before the enjoyment can be gathered in its plentitude?that is, the presence of the motley "million." There are necessary pauses between the "events" of the day. The turfite proper?horse owner, jockey, pool seller, pool buyer or betting man knows how to fill the pause with joy. The immense majority of those who go to the races are not of the turfites. For them the wait is tedious. The wave of excite ment recedes, and a dismal blank too often follows at Jerome Park. The scene become* but little removed from the calm of a Summer landscape under the most favorable weather circumstances. The varied life, the changing incident, the kaleidoscopic filling in of the picture, that can only come of the mul titude, are wanting, and all because the public

must pay to enter the precincts sacred to jockey dom. There is something painfully comic in the straggling group of Westche iter folk that porch themselves on the bluffs outside Jerome Park, like hungry Israelites looking down on the promised land. Why cannot the gates be thrown open and the million allowed to enter tree ? There may be an ample holy of holies reserved for the Club and its fair ones; the thousands who would pay tor goodly places could be acoommodatcd still, and the great j heart of Qotham's humanity pulsating merrily around would make the gathering at Jerome Park what it should be, the national horse festival of America. This it cannot be with out the presence of all classes. The race for the Derby at Epsom, in England, would not have its world-wide fame if the admission to the famous Downs was as low as sixpence a head. We understand that Monmouth Park will be thrown open free to whoever lists in the coming meeting. It would surely be wise of the Jookey Club to take this one great step towards popularizing their useful hobby of improving the breed of horses in America. The events at the meeting on Saturday next will well repay a visit, and we may close in wishing all who travel thither fine weather and good sport Surrender of Captain Jack-Let all the Indian Murderers Hang. The Modoc war is over. After a campaign murked by a series of surprising reverses to the troops operating in the wild lava region, succoss has suddenly crowned their efforts in the surronder of Captain Jack and the rem nant of his tribe. The story of this achieve ment will be found in our despatches else where. The news published yesterday from the lava beds prepared us, in some measure, for the final result But to offlcors and men alike the credit of persistency and courage under ad verse circumstances is due. Fighting in a country probably without its topo graphic parallel in the world, and with an active and sagacious enemy, well ac quainted with all its intricacies and capa bilities for defensive fighting, the s^diers (themselves ignorant of the country) had everything against them. We cannot, un fortunately, congratulate the military leaders throughout on their soldiership. The first attack, in which Buch a shameful defeat was inflicted on the troops, was, to say the least, a blunder. The peace negotiations which fol lowed this sharp reverse, and which cost us the life of the brave soldier, Major General Canby, as well as that of Peace Commissioner Thomas, were sad blunderings also. The attack on the stronghold or cave of Captain Jack was so loosely made that the wily mur derer and his band were enabled to slip away to another stronghold. An attack on this second position resulted in another slaughter of soldiers, without any good result. After this it appears that, owing to dissensions in the tribe itself, the Modocs separated into two bands, one of which shortly afterwards surrendered, and thus the wedge for their final defeat was entered. We have had occasion hitherto to call attention to that peculiar trait in the Indian's character which makes him so liable to panic in a moment of defeat General Jefferson C. Davis was in command at the tone of the surrender, and with his intimate knowledge of the Indian character, took his own course to complete the work of gathering Iftthe Modocs. The surrender of some forty individuals ol the tribe after the successful scout for them under the orders of General Davis ' will stand as a lasting ctedit to the personal dnring and acuteness of that dashing soldier. When it was announced that he had started from his camp in such bad company as Bogus Charley, Ilawker Jim, Steamboat Frank and Shack Nasty Jim, the gravest fears were nat urally entertained for his safety. The fickle ruflians, howover, appear to have held faith with General Davis, for he returned safe and sound from what appeared this side of the Rocky Mountains to be a rash and foolhardy experiment. In that scout they did not accomplish the desired end, but another soon followed, with what succoss has already been described. Thirteen warriors surrendered, and a day later Captain Jack, the murderer of General Canby, with his last remaining followers, laid down his arms and caibe in. Beforo yester . daj's news it was indeed hardly to be expected that the end was to be so soon; and with this view General Davis will be de Mr vedly lauded for the astute and singularly Well carried out plan by which he turned Mo doc war craft against the Modocs themselves. ?t agrees perfectly with our ideas of Indian jrtakntXM that, although having such V.ondttrful chancel of escape, they should toottmb ta the end without firing a shot Hen convinced that the troops fought with m determination to win, cost what it might. !Dm end of the fighting has come, and we are thankful therefor; but the work of justice and tetributioa must now begin. We already learn from Washington that the party of ianpf^-^orshippers are expected to bring aB possible influence to bear to wj?g a pardon from the Executive for the oapturcd Modocs. This does not astonish as. The murder of soldiers or settlors has never weighed a fig with these philanthropists when a savage was to be snatched from his jast doom. It was expected that the murder of the Rev. Dr. Thomas and the mutilation of the other Peace Commis sioner, Mr. Meacham, would cool their ardor in rushing to the rescue of the Modocs; but every philanthropist, it appears, would cheer fully consent to see every other ene killed and scalped if it only gave him the oppor* tunity to orave mercy for a red-skinned mur derer. We look at the matter in a different light The difficulty of carrying out the famous extermination order of the President in its first form has been commented on in these columns; but we see no reason why the fact that the Indians surrendered rather than be Bhot should prevent them from being hanged. The form of law may be neces sary; but the murderers of the settlers on the Lost River, of General Canby, Dr. Thomas and a long list of officers and men of the a^my, as well as other citizens, should and must meet their fate at the hangman's hands. The example of the repeated victories of the Modocs over our troops has already been pernicious euough among the tribes of the far West, and any mistaken leniency at this moment would, in all human probability, involve us in a dozen such wefts as the one just concluded. By every title of ownership the surrendered Modocs belong to the gallows. Neither the fact that they are ruffians of the deepest dye, nor that thoy look picturesque when they are captured, nor that the tribe set up a plea of emotional insanity for Captain Jack in advance of his trial, do we regard as mitigating circumstances. The thrashing given the thieving Kiukapoos, the punishment meted out by General Crook to the Apaches and the hunt of the Modocs by General Davis are instances of the proper mode of keeping the Indians in awe. The hanging of every buck among the surrendered Modocs will strike a wholesome terror into the Indians on the verge of revolt in the West, and will be the only atonement accepted by the people of the United States for the crimes of the fierce savages. The Muddle lit Arkanisi, The republican split in Arkansas yes terday assumed a definite form. For two months past Messrs. Brooks, Clayton, McClure, Yonley & Co. have been agitating lor the removal of Governor Baxter, their principal object being to replace him pro tem. by Lieutenant Governor Smith, who is alleged to be much more pliable for general political purposes. Baxter took the alarm sounded by the friends of the above-named clique some three weeks Bince, turned out the old officers who were kuown to be in sympathy with his opponents, reorganized the militia, appoint ing new heads of departments, placed a guard on duty at the Capitol, and placed himself on the defensive in such a dofinite and deter mined manner that for the nonce the clique gave way and abandoned their project until a more favorable opportunity should be pre sented. The Governor had so organized the State forces that within a few hours, it was stated, he could have called tweuty thousand men to the Capitol to defend him and maintain order. When it was dis covered that Baxter would maintain the power in which the Legislature had con firmed him the Clayton clique pretended that the whole matter was a gigantic joke and that Baxter was acting on the fears of a nervous man. Subsequently the sentinels were with drawn from the Capitol and the Governor re turned to his home. No sooner had quiet began to reign again than the Attorney Gen eral reopens the "joke" before the full Bench of the Supreme Court and now applie? for the much talked-of writ of quo warranto on the ground that Baxter is nothing but a usurper in the Executive chair. According to our special despatch elsewhere the writ may pos sibly be granted, and then we may expect to see another reign of terror in that unhappy State. If Baxter refuses to recognize the authority of the Court and the latter persists in serving the writ there must of necessity be trouble. PERSONAL INTELLIGENCE.

Award at the Court of Claims tor Cap tured Cotton. The Court of Claims to-day rendered a number Judgments for suits brought under "The Captured and Abandoned Property act" for the value of cotton taken and sold by government agents, the proceeds of which were placed tn the Treasury, la the cases of Bynum, Houston and O'Qrady, ex ecutors, tt was deemed that the government had no right to withheld either the two per cent cotton tax or Custom House fees, Ac., from the proceeds of the sales of captured and abandoned cotton, and Judgments were rendered for the amounts so wtthcld. Judgment lor $36,530, the proceeds of captured cotton, was rendered in favor of the Home insurance Company of Savannah, and In a similar case Judgment for $27,176 was given In favor of the Southern Insurance and Trust Company. These cor porations were created by the Leglslatare of the State ol Georgia while the said State was In rebellion against the United States, and the question raised was whether they were endowed with a legal ex istence, by w hich they were capable of owning the cottcn captured and capable of sning in this Court for the proceeds. The Chler Justice deliv ered the opinion oi tne Court, answering this ques tion affirmatively, holding that, under the decisions oi the United states Supreme Court, that whatever act of the Legislature or a rebel State did not tend to further or support the rebellion or to defeat the Just rights of citizens, but related merely to the domestic affairs oi the people of the State as a com munity, aside irom the connection of that people with the reiielllou, is a valid act by a tie facto though unlawful government, wu.ch will be sus tained In the courts of the United States. Apply ing these tests to the charters of these .companies it is, the retore, held that they have a valid exist ence aud are entitled to the Judgments above mentioned. The Court adjourned till Wednesday next, when a ilnal adji^rnnient is expected to the third Monday in October. Judge Uliigliam't Mission to Japan. The President has appointed John A.

This is lncorreot. The law in question extends only to private and State bankers. The duty on the capital, circulation and deposits of tne national banks is payable to the ire.Bureroi the United States In the same manner as nerei?fore.

The statement that the Board of Examiners for the Treasury Department resigned on account ol the failure of the system of open competition is pronounced by them as unfounded.
