The Untcn replies to the Intelligencer' chuckling over the article in its columns 01 thelfth wherein the editor intimates that thi Administration ia not responsible for his posi tiona and view* on the Cuban question. He i mists that the President and his Cabinet think with hia that Spanish outrages ahonld not be anbmitted to. Wa haw* mo doubt that no far. he ia correct?bat no farther; it being well known here to hundreds that the views of tha Administration upon soma of the point? alleged to be in isme between thia Govern ment and Spain, are by no meana identical I with those of the Union. Of the Intelltgen J r*r>t course cm the Cvban question, the editor ] says with undisguised bitterness : - J "We have no appreciation of that species of I regard for the repatation of the President or I for the honor of the ooantry whioh appeals to I the evils of war by waj of frightening the I government into a cowardly submission toag-1 gressions, or, if war should come by way of] embarrassing its prosecution by oharging the] re^wasibility of its occurrence upon the ad-1 ministration That is just what the IntelU- I g*nt*r ia daily doing whilat claiming to be a I well-wisher of the President and a friend of | the reapeetability of the country. It woald I hare the President to falsify the pledges he I has made to the ocan try by looking on with! folded arms upon the repeated outrages upon I national and individual rights committed byl Spanish officials?and this it calls relieving I his character from odiom and promoting thel respectability of the nation! The President | knows full well how to estimate sueh friend- I shin, and the oountry knows how to appreciate I sucn patriotism The Intelligencer, deprecating the acqoisi-1 tion of Caba at ?.ny time or under any ciroom-1 stances, a ays : " ft la not that we revolt simply at the mo 1 ralitv of the Ostend ' sale or selrure' doctrine I touching the aoqaiaition ef Cnba that we hare I with some earnestness opposed the fillibuatero I scheme cf ^revoking a Spanish war with al view to the conquest of the island; but be I cause of the conviction, long entertained and I often expressed through the columns of thiol journal, that the annexation of the island. | large and rich and tempting aa it is, would, at I no very distant day, prove a miifortune for I thia Union, and therefore, a* a queation of pub-1 lie policy, affecting deeply the general veal, I greatly to be deprecated We do not consider I it strange that many honest people, a majority perhaps should think differently, nor do we I blame th?m for thinking so, nor question I their intelligence, still less their patriotism. I for advocatiac the acquisition, by fair mean* I of what they deem so aeairable Bat we have | seen nothing in all the argumenta advanced on the subject to shake our opinion. On the I contrary, while reflection has had the effect I only to strengthen cur conviction of the im-1 policy of measure, we have not found in so] small a compass?nor indeed in any form. | since the mastorly speech of Mr. Boyoe, of South Carolina?so strong an argument in | support of our views as. in the condensed good | sense of the letter from a Southern man riven below. " ! The argument to whiah the editor refers] above is Irotn the pen of the Washington cot- ] respondent of the Journal of Commcree, aj Boston man originally?not a southern man as ] our neighbor supposes J WASHINGTON NEWS A*D GO*XIP. i ttov Becder and Col. Manj penny.?Gov Header, of Kansas has addrejsed a pungent letter to Mr Manypenny, the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, in reply to the charges made in his official report in January last, that the governor had been taking an improper advan*"ge of hi3 position to speculate in land* lie admits that he bought lands, but insists that be paid what they were worth, to parties as competent as he or Commissioner Manypen r y to transaot business lie concludes by say ing that either be or the commis ioner is unfit for his place, aad proposes that the commis sioner pg-ee that unless he make good his charge by or before a specific time, that the President dismiss him, and if he does, thar. the President dismiss Gov. Reeder. Whether the commissioner will accept this challenge or not, ha* not yet transpired. We take the above from an exchange It seeuis that the parties from whom the pur chases were made, are not regarded in law ns being competent to proteet themselves in such transactions, as they are under the guardian ship of the Indian Bureau and their deeds are not valid until confirmed by the Government, at this point Saeh appears to be the under standing among those interested in Indian matters here. And, further, that the agents of the Government stationed with the Indians] do not endorse the statement that full value ] was paid for the lands in question. j Private Land Claims ia California ?We I publish the following official letter by way of] showing the steps taken by the Government, at this point, to carry out the decisions cf the] Supreme Court of the United States in con | firmis^ private land claims in California.

The Sault fete Marie -We referred the other day to some interesting incidents con nected with the village of Ste Marie on the upper peninsula of Michigan. Since then we find that Congress has made provision for the settlement of titles to the property on which the village stands, and that, pursuant to law, the register and receiver have transmitted to the Geaeral Land OAee their offioial report on the subject When we fiad that this report covers between seven and eight hundred solid >?gw of closely written folio, besides a Urge ??Mof original testimony, all 0f which has ? He thoroughly examined by the Department vt the teat of government In order that equal *nd exact justioe may be 4om, we convey but *n inadequate idea of the labors of thii branch of the service, which holds Jurisdio jon and is required to pass upon the immense landed interests ander titles derived from the United States, and from the authorities of Great Britain, France, Spain and Mexioo, to lands falling within the limits of the Union. TheU t Jsfct Indies Squadron.?Yesterday we aonounced the arrival of the U. S. steam frigate Mississippi at New York on Monday afteraooa last.

Copies cf Hcgers's book and the flags are to be distrib utcd among vessels of the navy; and com manding officers of the navy are instructed to embrace every opportunity to familiarise the service with the use of these signals. A Deserved Compliment to the Staff Organ isation of tho American Army ?We have seen a letter in which is mentioned the re ceipt, by the last steamer, of a pamphlet by a distinguished English General, pointing out the sad defective condition of the staff organ isation cf the British Army, (now as hereto fore,) and reoommendiag a reform. His re marks point to the adoption of a system some thing like ours. He also attribu.es much of the inefficiency of the British Army to the in adequacy of the pay and allowances given to the soldier, and contrasts it with that given to our men, showing the salutary effect produced in eur Army by the late increase of pay. Fiah Guano?The agricultural branch of the Patent Offioe has recently received a lot of interesting manuscripts and other papers upon the preparation of "Fish Cake," as it is termed in France, for which, by-the by. a manufactory ha? recently been oom menoed in Rhode Island The heads and entrails of fish caught in shoals are subjected t> a prooeps by which two or three per centum of oil is extracted, and are then greatly I recced and dried in ovens; afterwards, this cako is mixed with gypsum, charcoal, peat, and other fertiliiers, and sold.
