says: The general character ofjo t)venty.six feet with the l5de
mv v.m. urc , vcimm
known. It bears date of the mid-
die of November, and was sent by
the same steamer which conveyed
Trescott and "Walter Blaine. It
sets forth at considerable length
the attitude of the United States
toward other republics upon this
and the South American conti
nent, affirming that it is our policy
to use the good offices of this na
tion to establish and ' perpetrate
peace between various nations to
which notes are addressed. He
affirms it is not the desire or policy
of the United States to interfere
in the domestic concerns of any
of those nations, but that the com
mercial interests of the United
States are deeply interested in tne
existence of harmonious relations
between the various republics
themselves, and between each and
the United States. The letter, af
ter discussing at great length the
mutual interests of the United
States and nations addressed,
treats of the question of the
great influence .of European pow
ers upon the two American con
tinents, and virtually proposes that
the United States and the vari
ous other republics to which th
circular letter is sent shcnild come
to mutual understandings in regard
to this matter, and propose mutual
guarantees against any interfer
ence or supervision from abroad.
The letter was prepared with
great care, and while the subjects
alluded to are fully ilNcusscd, the
tone of the letter i said to be
eminently conservative. The let
ter proposes on behalt of the
United States an international
conference of the republic -of
Mexico and Central and South
America to meet at Washington
the 30th of next November. Re
quest is made that the authorities
of each should name two commis
sioners to represent their govern
ment at the conference, tlm object
of which is to discuss questions
of mutual interest and promote
.friendly feeling?. At the tame
time this letter was dispatched
a second circular was mailed each
of our ministers, setting forth that
while it was well understood to he
a very delicate matter for one na
tion to mention pecuniary matters
to another in connection with such
invitation as had been extended by
the United State?, still our govern
ment desires to defray all the ex
penses of this conference, and it
was therefore in the discretion of
each minister to call this fact to
the attention of the government to
which he is accredited in such way
as shall appear to him most fitting.
Anoxo the many pleasant little
devicesjhat legislative romancers
are desirous of bringing before
the favorable coilsideration of
Congress is srfheme introduced
by some New York representa
tives to enlarge the Erie canal so
that war vessels twenty-live feet
wide and drawing twenty feet of
water could' pass from the great
lakes to the sea in case of a war
with England.- A subsidy of S15,
000,000 in bonds is asked, the
state of New York to pay the
present canal debt before the
Jx the U. S. Senate last Thurs
day Senators Miller and Slater
presented a number of petitions
from citizens of California and
Oregon, praying for leoislation to
regulate railroad transportation
charges, and Miller presented
meiribriuls and resolutions recently
adopfed by the San Francisco
board of trade, merchants' ex
change and produce exchange,
urging the" establishment of addi
tional signal stations on .the Pacific
"coast, and a central signal service
office at San Francisco.

sirous.of having his name appear

his course as to be in at the death
