The Neutrality Laws.
Certain parties were yesterday brought before the Untied States District Attorney, on suspicion of being engaged in an expedition against Nicaragua. The large number of passengers lately carried South by the steamer Everglade, plying between Charleston and Florida ports, had subjected her suspicion. The testimony of her agent that her passengers were settlers and lawful emigrants, relieved her. Against other parties no case was established sufficient to warrant their detention.
