if they have not—ol they 11Ut. received Instruction. which

ter arisen between the governments of Great Britain and
the United States—no less a matter than Pra tleeel the heel

fiat of a right to seize and carry away any of the crew of

subjects. Indeed, the ostensible object of visitation was

we should say, than to search for evidences that a vessel

right of visitation and search In the one ease. If we have
now to eneentiter an asseetioa as to right in the other case,
there is no sort of doubt about bow it will be met, by the
government, in the brat Settees, and, if persisted in, by
the people in the second butanes. But, as we have said,
we do sot audit that the British goveroment has issued
any instruetiona which warrant the condos of those of its
ships which have been visiting and searching American
vessels in the Golf of Meaico and the Cuban harbor of
Saguia la Graade, for such instructions would tat tanta
mount to a declaration of war. The American doctrine
respecting the right of search is as well 'understood in'
Ragland as it is hers. It is as well onderstooti-there as;
here what that doctrioe was in 1812—what it use when;
Gen. Cass blew up the famous quintuple treaty project-- ;
what it is now. What it is now has Just bean declared to

This is emphatic. There could scareely be a more .4
phasic and unequivocal statement of the American d

A .iIOVK IN Tilt RIGHT DIRECTION.-16. Sena

of the entire Country. The title of it is, " A bill to res
+in and redress outrages upon the flag and citizens of the
United States," and it eonfors upon the President
authority to use such force as he may deem necessary to
prevent the perpetration of such outrages upon our com
eliest* as have of late been the theme of complaint among
Mir commercial marine against the Davey of Great Britain,
slationed in the Gulf of Mexico. We hope Cougresi will
respond to this move promptly. Such a bill is positively
necessary, and it is strange indeed that such power has
not before hese given to our Presidents. It is not safe at
all times for an Executive to " assume the responsibility"
when pig powers are daubtful, although k may be for
purpose in itself commendable, just and right; bat clothe
him with the " power of the law" and he sets with fear.

Busing newspaper editors for libel is getting to be a very
unprofitable business in this city, so unprofitable, indeed,
that It may be expected ere long, like the swill milk busl

giving them a verdict, that even these will soon be obliged
to follow some other persnit to keep tiara starving. Dur
