Tho pnriit'iilars or this "strange event
ful history'' are as follows:
Cnpt. Duvis. of the St. ' Mjrya, which
for some time pnst, as you Ln iv, lun Ix-on
lyinjj lit San Juan del Nur, having visited
tho allied camp, and ascertained from his
own observations, as well ft from tho ac
; count brought (it by deserters, of tho
ulraiu in which Walker and his men
were reduced, addressed a letter to Walk
er on the 30ih of -April, stating that he
was aware of his desperate and forlorn
position, and ollV red, from humanity, to
interfere in his behalf, mx) stated that he
was authorized, in case of his (Walker's)
capitulation, lo guarantee his personal
safely and the safo removal of all under
hi command. He also offered to take
Walker to Panama in the St. Marys, ami
elated that Gen. Mora consented to sus
pend hostilities. "
To this letter Walker replied that Capt.
TaviV propositions wore too vague, and
requested a personal interview. Where
upon Capt. Duvis wrote to express his
surprisQ that hi propositions khould be
found vague re-slated them inoro plain
ly, asking him to abandon the enterprise
and 'leave the country, pledging himself
for the safety of. all persons nl Iiivas,
without exception, concluding by declining
to ro to Rivas.
The same day Walker sent a reply,
.stating' that he agreed to suspend hostili
ties until notified by Capt. Davis that they
are to recommence, but begged him to
notify Geo. Mora that he would consider
attempts to induce his men to desert as
an act of hostility. lie proposed to send
'two1 oliicers to Capt. Davis to treat, pro
vided they could have a safo conduct.
' " To this Capt. Davis responded by send
ang a pass to two of Walker's otlicers to
visit him, ami Walker appointed Gen.
Henningsen and Col. Waters as Comrnis
eiouors to negotiate with Capt. Duvis. .
Thenxt day, May l,th following
terms were agreed to, and Walker issued
them, in a general order, as follows:
: - Head Quarters of the Army, )

Gesxbil Ohder No. 50,
The Commander-in-Chief, in commu
nicating to the army tho folbwing agree
ment, thinks proper to state he entered
into it on the solemn assurances from Capt.
1 Davis, that Col. Lockridge, with his whole
.command, had left the San Juan river for
the United States.
In parting for the present with the brave
comrades who have adhered to our cause,
through evil as well as through good re
port, the Commander-in-Chief desires to
return his deep and heartfelt thanks to
the officers and soldiers under his com-
Reduced to our present position by the
cowardice of some, the incapacity of oth-1
ers, and the treachery or many, tho army
has yet Written a page on American his
tory which it is impossible to forget or
eraso. 1 From the future, if not from the
present, we may expect Just judgment.

The Mexico (Missouri) Ledr Miys:
' There wus an unprincipled .tran who
sold receipts or directions to the distiller
ies through Madison County, Indiana,
warranting that for every luhhel of meal
distilled they should have a Vuld tf five
gallons uf proof whisky i and as no luudiel
contains over two-nod a-hulf gallons of
Croof whisky, otw fnle remedy had to
o resorted to, and ihnt remedy wits mix
vomica, or btrychniuo and tolwco-juico,
and those poisonous kuIM:miccs being put
in with the meal when slop was li t to tho
hogs, so powerful was the poison that ev
ery hog which got to the slop died in un
Tiiii RaTTi.r.sAai:. The rattlesnake,
although its poison is so fatal, is, in tVt,
not a very dangerous animal, and people
are seldom bitten by it. This arisen from
two causes: first, that it invariably gives
you noiico of its presence by it ratlin;
and secondly, ihnt it always coilq itself
up like a watch-spring before it ttrikes,
and then darts forward only about its own
length. Where rattlesnakes aro com
mon, as in Wisconsin, persons generally
carry with thin a vial of ammonia,
which, if instantly applied to the bite, will
at leat prevent death.
. Good Rut:) tor A i.u Profane swear
ing is abominable. Vulgar languaga is
disgusting. Loud laughing is impolite.
Iuquisitiveness is offensive. Tattling is
mean. Telling lies Is contemptible.
Slandering is devilish. Ignorance is dis
graceful, and laziness is shameful. Avoid
nil the above vices, and aim at usefulness.
This is ihe road in which to become re
spectable. Walk in it. Never be ashamed
of honest labor. Pride is a curse a hate
ful vice. Never act tho hypocrite. Keep
good company. Speak the truth nt all
times. Never bo discouraged, but perse

uon a subject, the lady testily remarked :
"Sir, we cannot agreo in anything.
