method by which the facts relative to
Nebraska can be placed before the

which to reach a large portion of the

ihe Danton of the late rebellion, is nc;w
in quiet at his home in Washington,
Wilkes county, Georgia. He writes
in a private letter that he prefers the
political advantages of America to liv

that no true patriot of the South will
forsake his native land. "Let us re

by the favor of God to build up our

News came to San Francisco of the
i failure of a large banking and com
; mis. ion house in the Sandwich Llands,
I l.avinrr t'.T. tensive relations in Califor-
j nia. Two rival parlies were eager in
i staijtly to get to Hcnlulu to save the
i rieces and recot; truct on the ruins.
j The only regular modes of conveyance
j were slow and uncertain sailiug ves
i si'ls. Iijt the United States steamer
! Vancerbilt was yoing in a day or two
1 to carry Queen Emma home, and a
representative of one f ihe parties
had coutrired to secure permission to
go out in her. But the ottier side made
such representations of thu impropriety
of a United Sutes Steamer taking
mercantile passengers as induced the
Admiral to recall ihe permission, and
forbid anybody going ia the Vanderbilt.
So far, good, but now the lawyer of the
seccnJ party, representing the creditors,
wanted to go farther and get carried
on the steamer himself; it was a deli
cate mutter, but diplomacy succeeded,
and lie shipped finally as captain's clerk,
got promptly to Honolulu, and was gob
bling up ihe remains of the fallen house
on shore, when the agent of the o'.her
parties having taken a fast sailing ves
sel, appeared on the arena. Baffled
on shore, the latter went aboard the
Vandetlilt, and revealed the whole
story. 1 he old admiral was irate at
ihe way he and bis ship had b?en used,
and peremtorially ordered his captain's
clrk aboard ilia vessel, and served
notice on him that he could not rerign
hi place, but must accompany the ves-
el Lack to Aspinwall and V aiparasio
whither he woulcTOeedilvSi.iL The
story breaks off here; tut the lawyer
may be safely trusted, having cared for
his clients, to take care of himself.

not, we believe, visited the South since

The Hon. lie verdy Johnson publishes
the following letter in a Southern pa
March 22, 1SG7.
Dear Sik: Your letter of ihe 18th
is received. My vote for the bill you
refer to was given, not because 1 ap
proved of it, but because I knew that if
defeated, or not carried out by the
Scuth, other measures ruinous to them
in every way, would follow.
I wishod by my vote (hoping the South
would not doubt my desire to serve
them and the whole country) to place
myself in a condition to advise them
more effectually to acceptance than I
would if I had voted against it.
My advice therefore is, and I give it
most anxiously, that the proper course
10 be pursued by you is to organize
under the act at once and in good faith.
Very respectfully your obedient ser
vant, Reverdy Johnsox.
