Barracouta, and his men, wounding eleven seamen and killing ono, seems to he but a symptom of a very embarrassing complication. .It nof.oppears that Captain Stevens liad,' at '.th request of theo temporary King of Samoa, seized the Premier oi the kingdom, Colonel A.B. Steinberger an American citizen, and-a parsonal friend of Presidebt Grant; andthat the iostio attack upon the boat of the Bar. racouta was not a mere ouibreak of savagery, for spite or for plunder, but part of a determined attempt to resist the interference of a foreign power in the affairs of Samoa.._ A considerable number, to say the least, of the Sanoans were strongly attahebed to Colonel Stoin berger; they probably looked up to him as a being superior to themselves wvhom they believed to be able to go6veri them wisely, snd to lead'them in' the way of civilization. ...
