The negotiations with Great Britain rc
riarding the Alabama claims, so called,
have not reached any end, certain portions
of the proposed protocol of arbitration not
having Icon approved by this Government,
and having been returned to Minister
Johnson. The resignation of the British
Ministry is .regarded as only a temporary
hinderancc. Many cf the details relative
to the" "claims it is not deemed proper to
communicate ia the Message. Offers of
arbitration between Paraguay and Brazil
have, been declined, and the course cf
Paraguay is commented cn, though there
is an absence of official detail about the
late outrage cf Lopez. The Government
has made new treaties fur the protection
of naturalized citizens abroad. It has re
cognized the new provisional Junta in
Spain as a dc facto government, but has
received no formally accredited Minister
from the same. Affairs with Mexico arc
satisfactory. Arrangements for a mixed
Commission to settle the claims of Amer
icans in that country are in progress.
The Government has failed, so far, in its
negotiation for the purchase of a naval
station in the West Indies, and the Pres
ident learns that the French arc trying to
get the Bay cf Samana from the Domini

Our Legislature wiil have plenty of
names to choose from when they come to
select a s;:ccc:;.-or to Mr. Buckulcw in the
United. Slates Senate.
Some time ago, it w.u confidently asser

Treasurer, had the '-inside track," and
would surely receive the nomination and

Subs.-.ui-iily, J. Edgar Thompson.

road Company, was announced as a can

asserted that he was the coming man.

they can unite their strength on one

0:;i: of the results of the Liberal tri

In another column, "we publish, letter
for letter, an article that appeared in last
week's Freeman, called out by certain re
marks we had made concerning the purity
cf the ballot.
1 heroin the Freeman seeks to create the
iinprcs.-ion among its readers that we copy
It leaves its readers to infer that we de
sire that foreigners should not be natural
ized until live years in the country, and
then kept from voting for a year after
V o proposed to limit naturalization to
United States Courts and Commi.-sioncrs.
The Freeman represented us as-wishing
to limit naturalization to United States
The Freeman represents us as wishing
to require that '-each candidate for citi
zenship shall advertise himself and his
vouchers in a newspaper, like a petitioner
in bankruptcy" a proposition the like of
which we never made.
In each cf those particulars, the Free
man purposely and calculatingly misrepre
sented us. It dfd so because it knew that
its falsifications would injure us in the
estimation of many of its readers, and
because our corrections would never reach
those whom its falsifications mislead.
Wc challenge the Freeman to give any
reasonable evidence that we copy or in any
way plagiarize our editorials. Or, if the
Freeman will only assert that we copy or
plagiarise any of our editorial matter, we
will bring the case to quick issue by tel
ling the Freeman that it utters a falsehood
and let it rest under the charge until it
shows the contrary.
The Freeman sometimes tells us that we
arc young men. The editor of the Free-
man is an old man, whose years we vrould
gladly respect. II is life has not been
without its opportunities. Yet what is he
at last ? No words that we can utter
wouid be half so keen as must be the re
flection on his part (conscious as he is of
its truth) that he has come to gray hairs,
and yet, outside cf his profession, has no
higher accomplishment than a witless pun
or a low trick.
'To this'compJexion has it come at last
On Saturday morning last, the steamer
"United States," bound down the Ohio
river, and the steamer "America," upward
bound, collided at Warsaw, Kentucky.
i nc nrsc named steamer sank to about the
main deck, and then took fire. She specd-
ilj- burned to the water's edge, and seventy
fee to cljlitj jycrsons are reported to have
perished with her. The "America" was
not badly injured, but took fire from the
other steamer while "attempting to rescue
her passengers, and was burned to a cin
der. Not many, if any, of the "America's"
passengers c: crew are supposed to have
An occurrence of this character, if un
avoidable, is heart-rending enough. But
what is to be said or thought of it when
it is known that it was the re.-uit of s7uer
carelessness I A newspaper report of the
calamity rays: "It is said that some mis
take was made in signals. The 'America'
blew her whistle, which the pilot of the
'United States' apparently did not hear.
The 'America' again signalled by two blasts
of the whistle. ' Then the 'United States'
answered, Lnt it teas too late."
All this slaughter came l'rcm the crim
inal carelessness of somdodi. There was
no necessity for the collision. Somebody
was asleep at his post somebody wa3 ine
briated somebody was incompetent
somebody blundered or it had not occur
red. But the jury who wiil investigate
the affair and its causes will probably re
port it an "accidental collision," or, if they
place (he culpability where it belongs,
that will probably bo the last of it. A
person who kills ono man id banged, but
it is not the fashion to punish a person
who kills a multitude.
Americans arc proverbially a traveling
people. They owe it to themselves, to
tiieir families, to society, that more strin
gent laws be enacted to protect them from
loss of life or limb while on a journey.
Stringent laws, properly enforced, would
speedily decrease to a very low figure the
number of lives lost by accidents on rail
The Washington correspondent of the
New lork Tribune contradicts the report
that Mr. Colfax, the Vice-President elect,
will resign the Speakership of the House
of Representatives. He also states tliat
severa' prominent Republicans have urged
him to retuin the Speaker's chair, and we
see no reasou why he should not do so.
Mr. Colfax has proved a most acceptable
Speaker; he has nething to do until the
4th of next March, when he will be called
r.pon to preside over the Senate, and we
see no reason why he should not overlook
the deliberations of the House until the
time cornea for him to tale the oath cf his
new office ,

Senator Morton on Specie Pay
In a recent conversation Senator lor
ton is reported to have i?aid : I propose
a return to specie payments and contcm
olate fixing a time by law, say the 1st o
January or July, 1871, for beqinuinq the
redemption of the greenback currency
Hits ior several reasons: 1 irat, to giv
notice to the country that everybody n:ay
prepare for it, make their contracts and
adjust their business accordingly ; second
to ive time for the payment of the great
body of tho existing debt among the peo
pie before it arrives: third, to give tim
to collect the amount of gold necessary to
beirm redemption by reserving thesurnlus
gold ia the Treasury and that which is to
accrue. ly fixing the time for redamp
tion a faxed value, 1 consider, will' be giv
en to the greenback note, which wi!
gradually appreciate aj the time approach
ca for redemption, when it will be at var
and but little gold will be required, as the
greenbacks, then beinc: cf equal value
will be far more convenient iu business
than gold. I am opposed to further con
traction until redemption begins. The
contraction will take place by the act o
redemption, the bills redeemed beinir can
celled, but their place will be filled bv
gold and silver, which will then bo pour
ed into the volume of currency. The pro
cess win oe so gradual as to ceaso to excite
the attention of the people : will carrv
with it public confidence, and take place
witiiout crash or cocvrds-ion. The return
to specie payments will settle all questions
about the mode of paying the bonds, re
store confidence and revive trade. The
flow of gold from (he country to Europe can
oniy bo checked by creating a demand for
it at home for a currency. Iu evcrv coun
try where a legal tender currency has been
established it has driven gold and silver
from circulation, and in great part cut of

From the Freeman.'
The rebellion being ended and foreign
ers being no longer needed to do the fight
ing for the Union League, the Itadicals
are busily contriving how to prevent them
from voting. If these foreigners would
only vote the Iladical ticket our opponents
would permit them to vote as willingly as
they now do the negroes. ut this the
foreigners won't do. Therefore they are
. -1 1 ... .
ignorant ana besotted, and should be nat
uralized just as little aspossHjle.
Our neighbor of The Alcilumian is nn

not prepared tooay. It suggests one year's
residence after naturalization before vo

But the richest improvement of all of
