Sir J. P. Grant has begun his administration in Jamaica

by an act rather of good sense than of grace. He has liberated Mr. Levien, the editor of the County Union newspaper, who was arrested by Mr. Eyre under martial' law; and, Colonel Nelson refusing to try him by that process, afterwards committed for trial for sedition,—the evidence being a few articles decidedly more moderate in tone than the ordinary run of articles in the Morning Star on the subject of the same riot.
