he Democrats grin and bear it. The capture of the Florida — She is taken in a neutral port. The capture of the Florida will not cause so much surprise after the following account of it is read.--She was lying in the neutral port of Bahia, Brazil, under the guns of a Brazilian fort; and, under the laws of nations, should have been safe if she had not had a man aboard. The Yankee steamer Wachussett, which captured her, was one of those gunboats which participated in the fight at Drewry's icers and fifty-eight of the crew of the Florida were captured.

Now, there is not one sin attributed in the Declaration to George III. which the Yankees have not been guilty of in a most aggravated form since the separation. This seizure of the Florida in a neutral port will breed trouble some of these days with the Government of Brazil.
