between the United States and the gov
eminent of. New Grenada, by which
. New Grenada agrees to pay claims of
citizens of the United States, to be ad-,
justed by a commission, and promises
to use all efforts to prosecute and pun

thus settles the difficulties which so
long have been pending between the

' A very curious controversy, says the
N. y. Times, among the Generals of
the American army who were concern
ed in the conquest' of Mexico, seems to
have been started by the recent letter
of goner;:! Pillow of Tennessee. The
principal object of that letter was to
. claim for himself the credit of having
planned one of the most important op
erations of the campaign and of having
protested against the purchase of a
treaty of peace from Mexico by Mr.
Trist, who acted with the concurrence
and approbation of Gen. Scott. Brig
adier General Hitchcock has written a
reply to this epistle in which he fastens
upon Gen. Pillow the odious distinc
tion of having accepted a command in
the Mexican war for the purpose of be
ing a spy upon his commanding Gen
eral; and he then proceeds to show
.that Gen. P. himself in council ap
proved of the very proceedings for
which he now affects to censure Gen.
Scott. He. also convicts him of a de
liberate attempt to rob a brother offi
cer of the credit to which he was en
titled and sets forth the manner in
which the effort was regarded and treat
ed by Gen. Scott. The controversy
will probably be still further continued
and will make public a good deal more
! than is now known of tbe secret histo
ry of the Mexican war.
A telegraphic dispatch from Wash
ington states that the Administration
has received authentic information of
: the fitting out of three several expedi
tions for the invasion of Nicaragua
at New York, New Orleans, and Mo-
' bile ; and of another expedition, hay
ing its centre in Texas, and headed by
Sam Houston, for the seizure of. the
Mexican States of Tamaulipas. The
Administration is determined to cn-
r force the neutrality laws and a form of
. instructions has been prepared by Ex
ecutive " authority to forward to the
United States Marshals and District
Attorneys on the seabord for their
guidance in the matter. '
The New York papers are full of
. details concerning the loss of the steanv
: er Central America. The most essen-
. tial particulars were published last week
'in thi8jper and to complete them we
'have only to add that according to the
best statements 232 persons; more than
. one-half of the passengers, were lost
by this heart-rending catastrophe.
A dreadful poisoning case occurred
'in Pike county, Alabama, on the 12th
ult. A negro cook, at the instigation,
. it seems, of a Hungarian named . Co
miska, mixed arsenic with the food of
a family. Thirty-seven persons par
took of the meals, six of them have
died and several others were lyiag in
a critical condition. The friends of
the family assembled, seized the ne
gro woman, burnt her at the stake,
.and Comiska was to suffer the same
fate on the day following. I i

Chapman's favor, he could to-morrow,
if ariew election were to come off, dis
tance any of his competitors a thousand
votes. ): . '
Over the left; If the election were
to come off to-day between Ferguson
and Chapman, the former "would beat
the latter two to one. ! "
A great effort has been made and is
still being made to create an outside
pressure in' favor : of '.Chapman, by
writing letters from the Territory vto
different: papers in the States 'as to
what is the feeling in Nebraska relative
to the coming contest before Congress
for the seat of Delegate. We noticed
a lengthy article some time ago, in an
Iowa paper, giving an acconnt bf the
Nebraska election, setting forth the
wrongs heaped upon Chapman and
lauding Lim to the skips, "credited to
the Nebraska Advertiser. This is all
done for effect, and we hope and believe
Congress when it comes to decide the
matter,' will be governed by facts in
the case, and if a new expression' is
wanted from the Territory, we are pre
pared to give it, either by ; another
vote, or by petitions. j !
The following from the Charleston
Courier furnishes ground to believe
that the attempt to manufacture sugar
rbm the juice . of the Chinese Sugar
Cane, will prove successful:, , ; l .
Dr. D. Lee of the Southern Cultiva
tor has a sample of one or two pounds
of well-granulated and well-tasted su
gar, made by him at the plantation of
Mr. . J. Eve of Augusta, as the re
suit of his first experiment with the
juice of the Chinese Sugar Cane. This
result "is the more interesting from the
fact, that scientific gentlemen in Bos
ton havo expressed the opinion that
the plant contains no cane sugar, but
grape cr fruit sugar only,.. Dr. Lee's
knowledge ot chemistry has: enabled
mm to correct this error, and, demon
strate that the Chinese Cane is, nearly
as rich in crystalizable sugar as that of
the best cane grown in Louisiana.
Asew lorK paper, remarking up
a "V i
on the appearance of Sorgho Molasses
in market in some of the Southern cit
ies, erroneously places a sale of the
article at Louisville. The sale refer
red to transpired in St. Louis, and is
the first which ' has ' occurred in the
United States. ..
Mr. J. S. Minick of this county who
raised near an acre of the ; Chinese
Sugar Cane has been experimenting,
in making Molasses, and reports the
result as beyond his expectations.
Since writing the above we visited
the farm of Mr. Minick, where he has
in operation for grinding the cane
stalks, quite an ingenious mill of his
own construction, worked by horse
power. It answers the . purpose ad
mirably. - It is truly astonishing, the
amount of syrup the stalks yield. We
are quite confident, and this opinion
is fully endorsed by all hereabouts who'
have tested it-that the Chinese Su
gar Cane in this soil and climate is no
longer an experiment. When we take
into consideration the quantity of veg
etation an acre of land - will produce
the richness bf its sacharine qualities
the amount of folder and seed obtain
ed, we are at a loss to suggest a more
remunerative crop. ' ; r
After learning more of experiments
in this county '. we , will publish a eta
tistical article relative thereto. '
Quite a. number of other persons in
this county have cultivated more or
less of this plant, and we would be
pleased to hear and publish the resul
of their experiments.. .
Last week we noticed the". sinking
of this Boat, since which we have learn
ed that she struck a snag - opposite
Kickapoo city, Kansas, ' and sunk in
seven feet water. .There' is five fee
water in the hull. The boat is hung
on- the snag. . The freight will near
ly all be saved, and the boat be raised

Col. Nixon's Bank in
this city has been f receiving a-heavy
run for tome time 'past. It cannot
possibly hold out much longer. v,.The
CoU thinks himself, that its doom is
fixe i, that soon it will be numbered
among those past recuperation.
The above as our readers are aware
appeared in our paper of v last week
under the local head. It waa,written
in the spirit of mirth intended as a
ittle bit of pleasantry and we did not
or a moment suppose any one would
vieT7.it in any other light.! AVe regret
exceedingly that Col. Nixon thinks that
without an explanation, injustice might
be' done him as . an ; individual-
The explanation i : The Col. has
had a number, of handj
at work for
some time cutting Tlovrn a
Bank, fronting on . the river, and the
work is now nearly completed ,fi;The
enterprise was creditable to Mr. Nixon
as a public spirited man, and far be it
from us to connect it with - Nebraska
Wild Cat Banking operations. ' 1
:'. i,,Much has been said of the "Half
Breed Tract" and town sites thereon.
Saint Stephen wc believe was among
the first, if not the very first town site
laid off and improved on this famous
tract ofland. It is situated' immedi
ately on the west bank of the Missouri
river as near as may oe miaway De-
tween' the mouths of the two Nemaha
Rivers. It is surrounded by a heavily
and fine timbered country, possesses
an excellent landing and has within
the town site an abundance of a fine
quality of building stone.-, .1 he pro
prietors aro men of capital, and energy
and experience in Western affairs, and
will, we doubt not jmake a point of im
portance at St. Stephen. They, have
recently become possessed of such title
to the land as to now be prepared to
give Warrantee Deeds to all lots ld.
Already considerable improvement has
been made and much more under way.
A good Steam Saw Mill is now' in op
eration, capable of cutting 7000 feet of
lumber per day; : Two heavy mercan-
tile houses are located ait this place.
A large and commodious Hotel, a fine
Church and school house building will
be completed yet this season. s - This
looks like they meant something sure-:
ly. ; A good ferry is also at this placed
and the, Messrs. Nuckolls who own it;
will put a Steam Ferry Boat in opera
tion early in the spring.
Platte Valley Bank. . ;
. '' The Editor of the Nebraska
City News labors under a grand mis
take if he really thinks we "manufac
tured the slander upon the Platte Val
ley' Bank, and to slightly injure Ne-
brask .City, by .saying "it is also re
ported that the Platte Valley Bank has
clased doors for the present." Such
reports were in circulation, here are
yet in circulation we doubt not in al
most eve?y portion of the Territory out
of the Bank's immediate neighborhood.
You could not Mr. News as a sensible
man expect it otherwise under existing
From our knowledge, individually,
of the men connected with the Platte
Valley Bank we have always, and do
yet have perhaps, more confidence in
it than in that of any other in the Ter
ritory. We have great ' confidence in
the financial management of Mr. Nuck
olls. For thi3 reason, and this alone,
we . continued during those reports to
take all the Platte Valley money we
could get hold of; "and now' wish all
who are in arrears with us would walk
up and pay us off in Platte Valley
money; , As a journalist; however, we
considered it our duty to give all mat
ters, especially in regard to Banks at
the present time, to our readers as
they were afloat on the streets.
The New York Times! of the '22d
says: "A well-informed party from
Washington1' states to us that the re
cent purchase of state stocks, princi
pally Miss6uris,ar.Tenhessees, Ohios,
Virginias and. Pennsylyanias, for the
Indian department;-amount to nearly
a . million dollars - : The : investments
are made under ike direction" of Hon.
Jacob Thompson, Secretary of the In
terior, who has timed the movement to
meet as far as practicable the low rates
at which these stocks have been put on
the. market and . the superabundant
means at the command of the treasury
to make the disbursement? It also
happjly relieves to this extent in specie
the pressure on the money market,"
Hotel Postponement. r
, By reference to the advertising col
umn3 it will be seen that the Direc
tors of the Hotel Company have post
poned the distribution of Real : Estate
One rhonthj . The cramped state of fi
nances renders this course necessary.
It is hoped that all interested in this
building, and surely every citizen of
Brownville is, will feel the necessity,
especitlly under existing circumstan
ces, of putting their shoulders to the
wheel, : We have long needed a good
Hotel, itnd we must have one. One is
now under way which hen cqmpleted
will be ftn ornament to any place! j It
needs ail to complete it. A few very
few perions thus far have had to shoul
der the burthen in carrying forward
this enterprise. Some of them, too,
owning but little property in this place,
andu when accruing benefits are taken
in account, are doing wore than ,they
tougtl .'to. . -There iare 'others' Ve are
sorry to say heavy property holders,
wko-will be greatly-benefited by the
erection of this building, or any other
public improvement,- and have thus
far not taken any stock nol contribu
ted one cent towards the erection 'of
ITofd. This is wrong should not be
so. In such matters, there should and
must be, if we prosper, unity, of feeling
anq action. ., ;, .: ,;' .,
