C., Mar. i'lth, 1804. Ti tUi Kditor of th* Pre^\ ^ The luckiest Maine man in Washington is probably I)r. William II. True, of Freeport' whose faithful labors at the Campbell Hos pital seem to have been fully appreciated by those whose appreciations is most to be de sired. As the Doctor was making his eve ning round on Wednesday, Oth instant, he was not surprised perhaps to tlnd Chaplain Somerville in the Ninth Ward; but he was undoubtedly surprised when the Chaplain be gan to make a neat little speech to Inin and concluded by tendering him in the name of the officers and patients of the ward, a beau tiful sword, belt, sash, and shoulder-straps.— JBut this was not all. Kvery Friday evening a dramatic entertainment, furnished by such talent as the hospital contains, is most wisely allowed to the inmates. On the Friday eve ning after the presentation already mentioned, the amusements were witnessed by a large assembly, comprising the medical stall' of the * hospital, several officers, ladies, soldiers and eitirens, when who should appear but the Rev. Mr. Somerville again, stepping out In frout of the stage with another little speech and again aud this time unutterably surprising Dr. True, with a gold watch and chain worth $140, the gift of the officers and patients of the Sixth •Shoulder-straps, gold watch aud chaiu, all within two days, aud I don't know how many, hut at least seven more wards to hear from, as we say at election time. The unluckiest Maine man in Washington is decidedly Mr. Da’ius Forbes, formerly a journalist In your city but holding lately a third-class clerkship in the Pension Office. There can be no harm in mentioning that Mr. Forbes has been removed from his clerkship. Indeed the fact is notorious, has alrerdy been published iu the Chronicle, aud has reached Marne before this time iu a hundred ways. The cause, according to the report current here, is a singular one. It seems that Mr. Forbes, having his suspicions aroused by some peculiar circumstances investing a claim which had come before him, adopted the ex traordinary course of goiug to Baltimore aud seeking a personal interview with the claim ant, from whom he obtained statements aud papers which iu his view juslilled him in re jecting the claim on his return. Of course his decision was subject to the revision of the Commissioner; but practically, since the C jminissioner.cnunot be cognizant of all the details of each case, it was final. His busi ness therefore was not to act as an advocate for the Government iu obtaining new evidence, but to decide upon the evidence before liim, between tbc Government and the claimant. Mr. Forbes seems iu good faith to have taken a different view, and to have Wen actually re moved for the rery singular cause of doing More than his duty. For according to the ratnor, which 1 repeat without vouching for its entire authenticity, Senator Johnson pres ently called upon Secretary Usher aud remon strated against this assumption of extra judicial functions, to so good a purpose that Mr. Forbes was removed from office. One of the most distinguished Maine men in Washington last week was Gen. Neal Dow ; whose mere presence in Richmond seems to have permeated his prison walls and acted so powerfully upon the legislative bodies there convened as to have educed from those un promising assemblages a full-blown Maine law, by a vote of three|to one, in botli bran ches. No license to sell liquors will be gran ted alter the 1st of May; aud oue of the Rich mond law-makers said iu his seat that he would move to affix the penalty of public whipping to the law, but for the fear of inno cently entrapping some of his colleagues, cer taiu of whom have already become liable to iuc same iv» iuii nij£Ui|( miv in nr P^cuusi gambling. Gen. Dow arrived here, as you know, hud Friday. Saturday morning, notice appeared iu the Chronicle that lie would speak that evening at the Union League Hall. The ball is by no means such as is felt to be a necessity iu every New England village, far less sucli a ball as Mr. Beecher praised in 1’orlland this w inter. Washington is not yet sufficiently democratic, sufficiently civilized to provide a large and commodious hail for tire busy people, who get their education not from dead books but from the living lips of living men. So the New Englanders who throng rhe city under the new regime, hear their lectures in churches, iu the Sinitlisoaian lec ture room, sometimes in the lfall of liepre Mutatives, and speeches almost every night in this Union League Uall, which Saturday night was crowded and packed till every inch of standing room was occupied. It was a New England audience, largely sprinkled with soldiers, and a grievously disappointed audience when at half-past seven, it was an nounced that through some stupid blunder Gen. Dow had not been informed Lliat lie was to speak, and had started for home that morn lug. It seems that the General had been ap proached on the matter, and had said he would willingly speak at any time, while he remained in the city. Thereupon the notice had been issued, and the note advising bint thereof had gone to China, or the moon; a any rale he did not get it. His place wai supplied by Vice-Prebideut Hamlin and Sen ator Morrill. H. W. Ii. Origin ol the Monroe Doctrine. The Providence Journal some mouths slues printed a letter never before made public lroin John Quincy Adams, to Rev. I)r. Chan uing, in which is contained a curious bit of secret history showing the origin of what is called the “Monroe Doctrine.” It will be seen by this letter that under the most tryiug circumstances aud the severest temptations the American government acted with the mo»t sincere faith towards a friendly power —Spain—and with tire most open aud frank courtesy towards the two other powers, who were as the time our rivals for Cuba. It will be seen too that the arguments against European intervention in American affairs, which afterwards took shape aud was formal ly announced at a policy by Mr. Monroe, in one of his annual messages—whence the name of“Monroc doctrine,” had its origin in a sug gestion or proposition made by the British government to our own; so that Englishmen can claim the crodit of originating the cele brated “Monroe doctrine.” Quixcr, Aug. Uth, 1837 “Bee. William K. Charming, D. D. New port 11. /.:—My Dear Sir: * * » It was in September, 1822, that the events to which I alluded in my speech iu the house of repre sentatives of the 25th of May, 1863, took place It was the time when the Spanish government of the C ortes was overthrown by the French invasion under the Duke D’Angouleme. Great Britain became alarmed lest under tbe shelter of that revolution the Island of Cuba should pass into the pmtesaiou of France. The French government fabricated or w as imposed upon by a report that the British cabinet had de termined to send a squadron and take posses siou ol the Island. The uconle of Havana. divided into parties between tlie Cortes aud the King, were terrified by the premonitory symptoms ol negro insurrection and| looking round for protection. There was a party for resorting to Great Britian, a party lot adher ing to Spain, and a party tor seeking admis sion to the North American Union—the last of which was the strongest. A proposition was then made to a secret agent from them to Mr. Monroe to this effect—that they by a popular movement, of the success of which they had no doubt, would declare the Island independant ol Spaitj, if the government of the United States would promise them pro tection aud admit them into their Union un der a State Constitution, on the model ol those of our southern states, and with the un derstanding that as the population of the Is land Bhould inctease they should be at liberty to divide themselves into two states, and have that proposition of representation in the Con gress of the United States. As the induce ment to the American government to pledge their protection, they were assured that the alternative would probably Ire the prevalence of the party in the Island for the colonial con nection with Great Britian, and a resort to her lor protection. While this proposition was under the consideration of Mr. Monroe and liis cabinet, the French minister at Wash ington, by a verbal, irresponsible communi cation, not the secretary of state, the only medium of official intercourse between for eign ministers and the government of the United States, but Mr. Crawford,the secretary of the treasury, asserverted that the Frencli Government had secret but positive infor mation that the BritMi government had de liberately determined to take posewlon of Cuba. "The answer of Mr. Monroe to the propo sition from the Havana was that the frieudly relations existing between the United States aud Spain did not permit them to promise countenance or protection to any insurrection ary movement against her authority. Their advice to the people of Cuba was to adhere as long as possible to their allegiance to Spain— that an attempt of either Great Britain or France to occupy the island would present the proposal front Havana under a different point of view, concerning which the presi dent was not authorized to pledge prospecti vely the action of the United States, but that the people of the Havana might be assured of the deep interest which, under all the cir cumstances which might occur, the American government would lake in their welfare and their wishes. m.%, ui ai ii'hm oue mem oar of Mr. Monroe’s administration that the oc cupation of the island of Cuba by Great Britain should be resisted even at the cost of war. Their unanimous opinion was that a very explicit though contklenlial communi cation should Ire made to Mr. Canning that the United States could not see with indiffer ence the occupation of Cuba by any European power other than Spain, and that rumors had reached the American government that such an intention was entertained by the British cabinet, which made it necessary to ask an explanation of their views. Mr. Rush was iustructed accordingly; Mr. Canning disavowed emphatically all intention on the part of Great Britain to take posses sion of the island; but avowed her intention not to see witli indifference its occupation, cither by France or by the United Stale--, and he told Mr. Rush of the squadron dispatched by King Louis XVIII. to the West Indies, without notifying him of the expedition, and at the schooling he had ordered the British ambvssador at Paris to give the French cabinet for that siu of omission. Mr. Can ning then proposed that, by a mutual under standing between the British French, and Amercian governments, .without any formal treaty or convention, Cuba should Ire left in the ijuiet possession of Spain, without inter ference in the government of the islaad. Tills was precisely the policy which Mr. Monroe believed to be best adapted to the in terest and the duties of the United States, and he cheerfully assented to it. There was no further communication between him and the French government on the subject. So far as France was concerned, the arrange ment was left to he concerted between her and Great Britain. The people of the island of Cuba submitted to the government of Ferdinand, restored by the Ifuke d’Augou leme, and received a viceroy and captain general in the person of General Vives, who had been minister from Spaiu to the United States; one of the most upright and honorable men with whom it lias ever been my fortune to hold political relations, lie was precisely the man totrampdlize and conciliate the sub mission of the jieople of the island to their old government, and lie so effectually accom plished that purpose that the government of tllH I nitial] St'ltfXS IlKtril nrttliinrr fnelL/.e «(• intended resurrection in Cuba during the re mainder of Mr- Monroe’s administration and the whole of mine. “All these transactions were at the time profoundly secret. “I am,of course, your unalterable friend, J. <J.
