wore two States gunboats Captain Pitts had telegraphed their com manding officer from Champerico roquost assistance but the dispatch had not been delivered Now ho made a personal appeal for help The response was that thoy could do nothing without an order from the Port Captain On the next day tho ship was again in vaded bythe Commandant with a special force ofmen and another boatload of sol

When this order was executed tho entire force pro ceeded to Barrundias rooms Captain Pitts with them When tho room was reached Captain Pitts after depreoatini the necessity of surrendering his

he wants to bo directorgeneral of tho fair and now since tho site matter is supposed to be settled tho gossip largely turns npon who will be the most suitable man to fill the office for which General Hastings Is seeking Consid erable division of opinion exists in regard to the selection There is a scarcity of candi dates and little visible material for this im portant office Thus far tho entire country lias been able to pat forward prominently but three candidates They are A F Goshorn of Now York cxdiroctorgeneral of the Centennial George K Davis of this city and General D H Hast ings These are tho only candidates who have received any considerable degree of attention Within tho last few weeks however the contest has narrowed down to a combat between Messrs Davis and Hastings with tbo chances in favor just now of the former Daviss strength was principally with the local board which he has almost unanimously He has also a number of strong supporters in the National Commission and General Hastingss strength lies wholly among the Commissioners and they it will be found divided as between him and Davis This gives the Chicagoan a long lead as race now stands there are objections against Davis Some of the Commission ers while expressing their regard forJiim assert that he has for a long time been an and has n following of political friends who will fail to annoy himfor
