and as yet fruitless negotiations. The docu
ments in these cases are voluminous, and when
prepared will be sent to Congress.
Those now transmitted relate exclusively to
the seizure of the "Black Warrior," and pre
sent so clear a case of wrong that it would be
reasonable to expect full indemnity therefor as
soon as this unjustifiable and offensive conduct
shall be made known to her Catholic Majesty's
Government; but similar expectations, in other
cases, have not been realized.
: The offending party is at our doors, with large
lowers for aggression, but none, it is alleged,
far reparation. The source of redress is in
another hemisphere, and the answers to our just
complaints made to the Home Government are
but the repetition of excuses rendered by inferior
officials to their superiors in reply to representa
tions of miscouduct, The peculiar situation of
the parties has undoubtedly much aggravated the
annoyances aud injuries which our citizens have
suffered from the Cuban authorities, and Spain
does not seem to appreciate to its full extent
her responsibility for the conduct of these au
thorities. In giving very extraordinary powers
t them, she owes it to justice and to her friend
ly relations with this Government to guard with
great vigilance against the exorbitant exercise
o' these powers, and in case of injuries to pro
vide for prompt redress.
I have already taken measures to present to
the Government of Spain, the wanton iujury of
the Cuban authorities in the detention and
seizure of the "Black Warrior," and to demand
immediate indemnity for the injury which has
thereby resulted to our citizens.
In view of the position of the Island of Cuba,
its proximity to our coast, the relation which it
must ever bear to our commercial and other in
terests, it is vain to expect that a series of un
feud!y acts infringing our commercial rights,
and the adoption of a policy threatening the
honor aud security of these States can long con
sist with peaceful relations.
In case the measures taken for amicable ad
justment of our difficulties with Spain should
unfortunately fail, I shall not li.sitate.to use
the authority aud means which Congress may
grant to ensure the observance of our just rights,
to obtain redress for injuries received, and to
vindicate the honor of our Hag.
In anticipation of that contingency, which I
earnestly hope may not arise, I suggest to Con
gress the propriety of adopting such provisional
measures as the exigency mav seem to demand.

American Families ix Europe. The editor
of the American Law Register, an excellent
legal journal, published in Philadelphia, says :
It does not, probably, occur to the American
families who are visiting Europe in great num
bers, and remaining there, frequently, for a
year or more, that all children born in a foreign
country are aliens, and when the' return home
will return under all disabilities of aliens. Yet
this is indisputably the case; for it is not. worth
while to consider the only exception to this rule
that exists under the laws of the United States,
viz : the case of a child so born, whose parents
were citizens of the United States on or before
the 14th of April, 1802.

they would do well, they flourished, grew finely,

Death through the Bite of a Cat. On

little boy named Robert Wilson Hunter, son of
an exciseman, -who.' died in '-fearful agODy ou
Tuesday night, of hydrophobia, through the bite
of a cat. It appeared that in November last
the poor little hoy was standing in his father's
garden, when a cat came ruuningdown a passage
in great agitation. Thinking the animal was
chased by dogs, the poor little fellow caught it
in his arms. But no sooner had the poor child
done so, than the infuriated animal caught him
by the hand, and held it tenaciously until the
father of the child came and choked it off. The
poor little boy's hand was fearfully toru, the
muscle being much lacerated. The child was
immediately conn eyed to a surgeon's, and the
wound carefully dressed. After about three
weeks the wound appeared to healy-and the boy
to enjoy his ordinary health, until Monday
(week), when he was taken ill. Very alarming
symptoms soon supervened, and a surgeon being
sent for, he pronounced it a decided case of
hydrophobia. On Tuesday, Dr. Brum, of Sun
derland, was called in, but after spending a dis
tressing day, the poor little fellow was relieved
from his sufferings by death about midnight on
that day. The cat, which belonged to a grocer
iu the village, had been destroyed the day it bit
the boy. The jury returned a verdict that the
child died of hydrophobia, caused by the bite
of a cat. London Daily Sevcs

A leap not less perilous than that of Samuel
Patch, was witnessed on Saturday, by the cou
ductor and passengers of the Covington and
Lexington train. A young farmer was walking
across the bridge at Demoisville, just after the
train had passed over, when the engine was
suddenly reversed and the cars were backed at
a rapid rate. There was no room on the side
of the bridge to stand between the edge and the
cars; the only alternative was to spring off into
the creek running thirty or forty feet below.
The young man gave one look at the ears and
instantly sprung over the side and struck the
water feet foremost. The train was stopped,
but to the snrprisc of all, the hero of the peri
lous feat came out of the water, shook himself
and walked off whistling, "Jordau is a hard road
to travel I believe."

busily employed in studdying out a plea, when

to take an advice of "his honor." The lawyer

"Shure," he replied, 'I want u, divorce from

The lawyer asked wliat was the trouble, but
Pat seemed loth to tell.
"Does she not treat you well, does she not
take care of your house, has she deserted you or
does she like any one better than yourself?"'

"If he will perform some act which is charac

what it shall be I shall believe in it."
"Very well," said the medium; "we wait for

This was no sooner said, than (as the story
