Why Whit an acknowledgement Tho print of tickets then would Havo decided the question with Tho Timet which Way its editor would have voted. We did not expect to hear so open a confession of the motives which actuated him in political matters though Many have suspected for a while that something very near Akin to this was True.

In the mean time our government will take immediate Steps to strengthen the hands of our minister and rebuke Tho unwarrantable interference of in English and French ministers and also despatch a number of vessels to Tho Gulf to no acct the lives and property of american citizens.

Two americans were killed and five imprisoned by the reaction St party after the engagement. This inhumanity had been protested against by our Consul and the Aid of the English minister had been solicited to get redress without availing anything. Still another account Bays the constitutionalists forces were overthrown with great loss at Tho City engagement. On learning that our minister had recognized the a Pircz government the Church party promulgated a protest against it and sent or. Black our Consul his passports. In All this however it is not acknowledged that the Jai Irez government had been overthrown but on tha contrary Tho read zionists were consulting upon the propriety of nationalizing Tho Church property. The Liberal party do not seem to be much Dis hearted though their conduct is censured in not taking advantage of Theirdo Mcrand possessed themselves of the City before the reinforcement of Tho read zionists had arrived.
