der except John Stuart Mill, is the universality of application which he demands for his theory. In urging its adoption he makes no distinction between countries; he takes no account of geographical position— whether a nation be in the Eastern or the Western Hemisphere, whether it be north or south of the equator; he pays no heed to climate, or product, or degree of advancement; none to topography—whether the country be as level as the delta of the Nile or as mountainous as the republic of Bolivia; none to pursuits and employments, whether in the agricultural, manufacturing, or commercial field; none to the wealth or poverty of a people; none to population, whether it be crowded or sparse; none to area, whether it be as limited as a German principality or as extended as a continental empire.

rk City to Buenos Ayres, the railway would be 10,221 miles long, and to finish and equip it would cost at least $200,000,000. This length and cost would also be increased when the line is extended through Patagonia to the southern limits of South America. Complete surveys prove that a practical route can be had, and the road built in a reasonable time. The route of this road can be traced on a railroad map, while the following table shows the distances, the miles built, and the gaps to be filled: Countries. Built. Proposed.Total.

ricans in consequence of illegal captures by Spanish cruisers, such losses to be paid by the Spanish crown. The rising of the people of the Spanish-American provinces to secure their political independence of Spain began soon after the royal family of Portugal abandoned Europe and took refuge in Brazil in 1807. The rising began in Buenos Ayres, Venezuela, and Chile. In 1810 Mexico revolted, but did not secure its independence until 1821. The other states followed at various intervals, Bolivia, in 1824, being the last. The people of the United States naturally sympathized with these movements. When the diplomatic appropriation bill came up in Congress, March 24, 1818, Henry Clay moved to insert an appropriation for a minister to the new South American republic of La Plata. Early in the session of 1819 he proposed the acknowledgment of the South American republics, but it was considered premature. He brought the question before Congress again early in 1821, when the House of R
