SOUTH AMERICAN WAR.
President Mitre, on receiving the
news of the wanton invasion of the Ar
gentine Republic, issued a proclama
tion to his "fellow countrymen," sum
moning them to their posts as citizen
soldiers. According to the press of
Buenos Ayers, the proclamation has
been received with enthusiasm, and all
political parties are said to be united
in a determination to support the Gov
ernment. According to present appearances,
the war may become one of the most
important that has yet taken place iu
The land forces of
Paraguay are estimated by tne JSue
nor Ayres Standard at 00,000. ihose
of the allies Brazil, the Argentine
Republic and Uruguay are expected
to reach soon o.000. But the greater
number of this force has vet to be rais
ed, while the Paraguayan force is al-
ready in the field. It is thought,
therefore, that it may take a few
months before the allies can assume
The combined population of the
three allied countries so far outnumbers
that of Paraguary, that the success of
the latter would seem to be impossi
ble. The Paraguayans hope, howev
er. J that they will find many allies in
the northern provinces of the Argen
tine Republic, and in Uruguay. In the
Brazilian province of Rio Grande,
which will now be the first to be over
run by the forces of paraguay, the
slaves form a vast majority of the in
habitants, and by giving them liberty,
President Lopez would detach this val
uable province from Brazil.
It is evident that the issue of this
war may have important conseqnences
for a large portion of South America.
Senator Sherman of Ohio on
a Uuiuu iuuicuimn hclJ in T'iolc-
away county. Ohio, on the 10th inst..
Senator Sherman made a speech in
which he took high ground iu favor of
negro suffrage. He said:
"If we can put negro regiments to
garrison the Sollth and give them bay-
s , t
onets, why can t we give them votes f
Both are weapons of offense and de
fense. Votes are cheeper and better.
Bothar part of the military necessity
put upon us by the rebellion. Both
are unpleasant to the rebels, but medi
cines are not usually savory.
I conclude, therefore, on this sub
ject of negro voting, that in all States
who can claim their full rights under
the Constitution it is a qnestion for the
State, and that in revolted States it is
a question of policy and military gov
ernment, to be decided by the national
authorities until the State is fully re
stored to its former condition. In some
of the Southern States I would leave
them under military rule until ihey
provide the only sure security for the
future; that the negroes should have
their share in reconstruction, as they
have borne their share in fighting.
Negro voting may not su't our nat
ural prejudices of ca-rte. They may be
ignorant, docile, easily led, and not
safely trusted wilh political power; but
if you admit all this they have been
true and faithful among the faithless.
They have joined in putting down the
rebellion; and now to place them
at the mercy of those they have helped
to subdue to deny them all political
rights to give them freedom, and
leave them entirely subject to laws
framed by rebel masters is an act of
injustice against which humanity re
volts. Suppose you deny them suffrage,
what then ? The Southern States gain
by the freedom of their slaves fourteen
new members of Congress and as ma
ny electoral votes, not three-fifths.
but five-fifths are contented. If you
give the same men who revolted this
increased political power, what safety
have you ? Suppose ten years ago
they had this additional power, Kansas
would hare been a slave State this day
and they would have had ample politi
cal power to subvert your Government
without a resort to arms. All the evils
that I perceive may arise from a mix
ed voting population, are insignificant
cempared with the only two alterna
tives: the restoring to rebels vast polit
ical power, and the danger and vast
expense of military governments."
TIIC L'MTCU STATES-
M. de Montalembert has just pub
lished an article in the Correspondent,
headed "The Victory of the North in
the United States," which the jJvenir
J"aiiGnal descrioes as "an act of con
trition, and an open disavowal of the
fatal doctrines which formerly led him
to call for an 'expedition to Rome in
the interior." The military virtues
displayed by the Americans during
their tremendous struggle of four years
duration, seem toM. de Montalembert
nothing in comparison to their civil
virtues. The citizens of the United
States did not have recourse to suicide
to get away from fear and suspense.
They were not the people to imitate
those despairing sick who prefer im
mediate death to prolonged suffering.
He thinks their conduct in time of trial
a grand lesson for those European na
tions which, though a heroic as need
be on the battle-field, are "intimida
ted and demoralized by every civil
danger." The Americans have given
to the world the "glorious and consol
ing example of a people who saves it
self without a Caisar." The Avtn'.r
sees in this homage from an old apos
tle of intolerance a striking instance of
the power of liberal principles.
THE HOXIlUn.. TREATY.
The Treaty between the United
States thd the Republic of Honduras,
is officially proclaimed. It provides
for perpetual amity and a reciprocal
freedom of commerce and .navigation.
Honduras engages to open negotia
tions with the various Governments,
with which it may have relations, for
their separate recognition of the per
petual neutrality, and for the protection
of the contemplated Honduras inter
Oceanic Railway, from the Atlantic to
the Pacific Oceans.
Honduras agrees '.hat the right of
wav or transit over such route shall be
at all times open ana tree to tne oov-
ernmentand citizens of the United
Slates, for all lawful purposes whatso
ever; and in consideration of these
concessions, the United States engages,
in conjunction with Honduras, to pro
tect the same from interruption, seiz
ure or confiscation from whatever quar
ter the attempt may proceed, so long
as the spirit and intention of this article
on th's subject shall be preserved.

Rebel EYiiigralion to Rrazil
The wVtir- Orleans Picayune makes
the following statement:
"We understand that a number of
the most prominent Generals and En
gineers of the Confederate armies, for
the moment uneasy, or apprehensive
for the future, contemplate going to
Brazil, where they expect to find a
more independent home and better em
ployment for their skill and talent.
We also learn that the same movement
is contemplated by officers and engin
eers of the Confederate navy, with
whom, personally acquanted as they
are with the Brazilian shores, the idea
"It is, likewise, said that many of the
rank and file, both of the army and na
vy, apprehensive of the difficulty of
getting employment; and following the
example of their leaders, are preparing
to emigrate to the valley of the Amizon.
This is properly discountenanced by the
leaders, iff the best interest of their
followers, as ill-judged and every way
unwise. Indeed, we cannot see how it
is possible for many of them who have
families, or even them who have not. to
raise the nectesary means for such an
emigration. It would probably cost
SI, 000 for even a small family to go
to the Brazilian shores and support
themselves for six months, a year or
whatever length of time it might take to
find or establish themselves in their new
homes, if ever found; for it is the ex
perience of all mankind that the life of
an exile whether voluntary or involun
tary, is that of a discontented wander
"Some of the officers, we understand,
are the more apprehensive for the fu
ture, because of the fact that before
secession they belonged to the United
States army, or were in service under
the Government. It is doubtless true
that such persons, if they desired it,
would not be permitted to go back their
old places and employment. They can
not, therefore, avail themselves of the
generous permission of General Or
ders, given to the mass of the Confed
erate army, to resume their former
a vocations in life.

Mr. Isaac Newton, head of the De
partment of Agricultural at Washing
ton, has issued a report for the months
of April and May, in relation to our
agricultural prolucts, their prospects
and conitions. The report shows a
falling off of the foreign and govern
mental demand, and treats at length
of the reciprocity treaty, now about to
expire. Soeaking of the prospects of
the growing crops, Mr. Newton says
that "the crops of IS65, both at home
and abroad, promise an abundant har
vest; and should this promise be real
ized, prices must fah; especial under a
continued decline in the value of gold
But no estimate can yet be made of
what thesecrops will be, for they are
not free from serious and unfavorable

ever, that the summer will show an
increased export of our wheals, be
cause their quality is superior; and the

PRESIDET JOSISO OS XE-
The most pointed views of Presi
dent Johnson on negro suffrage have
just been made to the delegation of
Quakers, who called on him with a
petition asking that the influence and
power of the Government may be so
wielded, as to secure to all persons
without distinction the equality of right
and franchise. In response, President
Johnson said be would not make a
speech, but would talk to them in the
spirit of friendship and fraternal re
gard. He wished ;o talk to them as
though they were all members of the
same family. He told them of the
difficulties in the way of conferring the
right of suffrage, as they desired, and
gave them many instances of his ex
perience among the slaves of the South
whose habits and feelings he professed
thoroughly to understand. But one
great act might be said to have been
fully accomplished by the war after
the restoration of the Union, and that
was the complete abolition of Slavery.
There are many other things that
would require time to accomplish, and
among these might be the question of
suffrage. He next referred to his own
experience it the rebellion, and to the
fact that while ha had suffered person
ally and pecuniarily, and in other
ways, he had no complaint to make,
out wouu uo nia best to bring peace
and order to the country.
aTA person of an observing turn
of mind, if he has rode through a coun
try town, has noticed how curious
youngsters alon the route will fill the
window with anxious faces in order to
get a glimpse at the passers by. Our
friend Jonathan, peddler, drove up in

A Difference. Henry Clay, in a
speech on the compromise measures,
in the United States Senate, July 22,
"If Kentucky tomorrow unfurls the
banner of resistence unjustly, I will
never fight under that banner. I owe
a paramount allegiance to the whole
Union a suborbinate one to my own
State. W'hen my own State is right
when it has cause forresistence when
tyranny and wrong and oppression in
sufferable arise, I will then share her
fortunes; but if she summons me to the
battle field, or to support her in any
cause against the Union, never, never
will I engage with her in such a cause."
Robert E, Lee admitted that Virgin
ia was wrong in attempting resistence
to the Government for redress of griev
ances, but chose to go with his state
against the Union. Who doubts that
Mr. Clay, if alive, would say that Lee
should hanj as a traitor.?
GLIE FOR READY USE.
To any quantity of glue use common
whiskey instead of water. Put both
together in a bottle, cork it tight, and
set it away for three or four days,
when it will be fit for use without the
application of heat. Glue thus prepar
ed will keep for years, and is at all
times fit for use, except in very cold
weather, when it should be set in
warm water before using. To obviate
the difficulty of the stopper getting
tight by the glue drying in the mouth of
the vessel, use a tin vessel with the
cover fitting tight on the outside, to
prevent the escape of the srints by
evaporation. A strong solution of isin
glass, made in the same manner, is a
very exeellent cement for leather.

Preparing Beef Essence. This valuble
article has become so extensively prescrib
ed by physicians, particularly in cases
of low or typhoid fevers, that it may not
be unacceptable to many of our readers
to know the best mode of preparing it
Take about two pounds of beef, remove
all the fat, and cut it in peices about an
inch square, put it in a jar or bottle, and
cork it tightly. The best kind of a ves
sel is a glass jar, such as is used for can
ning frnit, with a lid that screws or
fastens close, as the beef is more easily
removed if the mouth of the jar is large,
but a common bottle will answer the
purpose. Place the jar in an iron pot
filled with cold water, tie a string around
the neck of the jar, leaving the string
long enough ta slip through the iron loop
at the handle of tho pot, and tying it so
that the jar may 6tand firmly in the water.
Put straw or a cloth at the bottom of
the pot, or anything that will prevent
the jar resting on the bottom and becom
ing dry, thus risking its breaking. Let
it boil for two or three hours longer if
covenient; shake the bottle well before
pouring out the essence; let it get cold,
so that the fat may be entirely moved;
then season it. It is more savory whoa
warmed just before giving it to tha

Potted Meats. It sometimes happens
to the ladies, from some unforeseen cir
cumstance?, that large quantites of cook
ed meats, prepared for a large party
which did not cime off, perhaps, remam
on hand, which are measurably lost.
Such should be potted. Cut tho meat
from the bone, and chop fine, and season
high with salt and pepper, cloves and
cinnamon. Moisttn with vinegar, wine,
brandy, cider, and Worcestershire sauce,
or melted butter, according to the kind of
meat, or to suit your own taste. Then
pack it tight into a stone jar, then cover
it over the top with about a quarter of an
inch of melted butter. It will keep
months, and alway affjrd a ready and
excellent dish for the table.
How to Preser f k Mixce Pe Meat.
Thoroughly boil the mat, chop fine and

and when cold cover the top with mola3
