(Whatever that may be, Bpybnd Hying beyo'nd

was fiflly represented. 'As Hr. Snows, the
plethoric sexton of Graco Church, New York,
who invites the parties given by ostentatious
wealth, in Upper Tendon;, was not in command,
his noble army of young party-sans, the Fira
oahuoh corps, with their' cleaned kids, were
not on duty. But Miss Fiord McFlimsoy, of
Madison-squaro was. there,:and many of iief
charming relatlons from all parts of the Union,

agreeably 1 blending fuss and "feathers, with

ITb’ej fete, a deligiitftUaflalr, by all accounts,
lasted only from seven.,, .Yet, with

in four:hours.. The reporter.graphically re
lates what'a large quantity', of flirtations,
eatings, drinkings, „ dancings; " and gobe

space. 1 "We should' not'. be'surprised were a
couple ofhuudred marriages to arise out of this
grand affair at, Mr. Wbtkobe’s. We have

from Upper East Tennessee indicate a general

forced upon our minds, we have little inclina

[Prom the San Francisco Herald, July 20.}
' By ft telegraphic despatch in another column, it
will bo seen.that the Hon. John B. Weller has been
nominated, on tho first ballot, for the office .of
Governor, by the Democratic State Convention
now in session at Sacramento. That he is the al
most unanimous choice of the Democracy of the
State Is fully‘established by the vote which' he re
ceived, and that be is eminently qualified to dis
charge,with honor to himself and benefit to the
Ke, the duties of tiie high offlae for which he
eon nominated, even his political opponents
will readily conceded The offioe of Governor of tho
Stato of California pan.ftdd no additional lustre to
the n&me of John B. Weller. His name is connected,
not only with tfie history of this State, but of the
United SUtek. It does not require the nomination
for the ,Governorship of. this State' to bring bis
name before the people. He is known, and his
Sreatiervicfts are acknowledged from one end of
loHiate to the other, and hiaeleetion to the guber
natorial ohelr cannot r he regarded ea so much an
elevation of tho man as of the office under his ad
ministration; and wo speak of it with etery confi
dence, for the nomination we, regard .as• almost
equivalent to election. Wo may expect a digni-.
Bod. strong, wise, and economical government. We
cordially endorse the action of the Democratic Con
vention, and will labor heart and band for the sue

forward by that body.

The Costa Bican confidence was re-established,

A oonrier arrived at Sad Jooe oa the 23d of July,
bringing the news teat the right of . .wgy ores the
Nicaragua Transit Route had been granted toR. C.
Webster and J. C. Harris, aon-isdaw' of -Charles
Morgan. Nicaragua, it is said, is w party* and
gave her consent to the contract.. -The -only infor
mation we have been able to obtain on the subject
is containedin the following letter cF-tbeborres-
S indent of the New York Herald; dated S*a,Jose,
ostaßica, July 23th: .
Since my last communication the final veto has
been put upon the straggle for tee: rigfcthf- way
over the Isthmus of Nicaragua, by our
Siring the grant to his old ally, Hr. R.C.W ebstor,
and his former hitter opponent, Mr! j t (/.Harris,
son-in-law of Charles Morgan.. 1 have raadd dili
gent inquiries as to the reason why our goyern
ment admitted Hr'. Harris 1 name in tee heir grant,
and have ascertained the following facte: - ■
The grant of. right of way over the-Isthmus
which Charles Morgan A Sons < had bough 6, from.
President Evans, contained the odndibon that
Morgan A Sons most carry tee forces of ih4 repub
lic and any emigrants amounting to 1Q,090 bytheir
steamers, receiving in pay a certain'amount of
land. When Costa Rica declared war against
Nicaragua, she declared hostilities only against
filibusters, not against the patriotic, party in
her sister State. Consequently,' in conformity
with the laws of nations, Costa Rfea had
no claim by conquest to that whiter ahe had
Sained by. the force of arms. Morgan, Garrison A
o.j having acted up to the tenor of their grant,
given by Rivas, held a fair claim toteerigbt of
way over the Isthmus, and our President, taking
this view of the case, readily agreed to the plan of
amalgamation proposed by Messrs. -Webster A
Harris, and gave these two gentiemeaAha-eentrol
of the Transit. Mr. Anderson, who returned to
Costa Rica as the agent of Messrs. M. O, Roberts

gsdenpriie, but the Commodore’s agent* the notoriS
oasS. M. Spencer, is net endowed with-sufficient
shrewdness to play the part of& good Negotiator.
The fight has been a severe and hard contested one,
1 some of the aspirants denouncing their; com
petitors in the most unqualified language..
The conditions of the charter are not- generally
known, bus it is said to be far more liberal .than the
one.formeriy given to Mr. Webster. - Nicaragua
has given in her adhesion to the contract/ The
Nicaraguan Senate assembled at Harare:v%arly in
the present monte, and tfc<Trawfity and
other questions met at once with a .satisfactory
solution, the Senate agreeing'to the “treaty” pro

an‘end to all possible rupture between ThVtwo Re

interviews with our President, and the-pobtie is in
formed that Ida mission is of tee most-satisfactory
and cordial character. Out Government .has sent
on (in compliment to Mr. C. Jones’s visit) to-Wash-
