THINGS IN WASHINGTON.
A Speck of War at tbe White House
lligerent Interview Between the I
ident and Senator Ross-The Son
Ordered to Leave the Executive Pres?
Tho Washington correspondent of tho
York Herald telegraphs under date of Mo
Senator Ross, of Kansas, ono of thc ga
seven who voted against impeachment, bc
ed tho President in his den this morning,
report is that Ross went to the White Hom
look after certain appointments for bis fa
State. He had heard that the Presiden
tended to make certain nominations inc
patible with the slate ho (Ross) li aa made
for himself. Ross, liko sother enators
human, and has a soul not above yearning
the loaves and fishes. His soul felt ea
what be bad learned concorning the dosigr
President Grant, and, to give his soul corni
he wended bis way to thc Whito House,
was admitted at the same time as old 2
Chandler, but bad the first chanco to sp
his little piece to the President.
'T come, Mr. President, to talk with
about the appointments for my State, ha\
heard that you intend to make certain norn
lions that may not harmonizo with my desi:
if you doom it worth wbilo to consult then
To which Grant laconically and interrc
tively responded, "Well, sir."
This Presidential responso was not in
true manner to be relished by thc Kansas s
ator. "Am I to understand that 1 am rigl
informed as to your stated intentions to di;
gard my preferences in the matter of appoi
meuts, Air. President?" inquired the se?alo
"That is a question hardly susceptible of
answer, sir. To what appointments do t
allude? In fot ni me and then I can reply,"
Senator Ross liked tho second answer as
tie as the first, but haviner como for enlight
ment, bc was detotmincd not to go away 1
fog. Tho senator, therefore, with suportas
rape, explained the appointments to which
"Frankly, sir," said Grant, I intend not
make those appointments."
"What, sir I Yon scorn to accommodate
in tbe least," exclaimed Ross, boiling over w
"Sir, I believe I hive erivon you my answe
firmly but sternly replied Grant.
"This :s not treating me fairly, Mr. Pr J
dent, nor as ono gentloman should anothe
uttered Senator Ross.
"I have no intonion to be dictated to, si
said Grant sharply.
"Kor have I to be insulted, even by you, s
were yon twenty times the President," exclai
ed Ross, with his ire stirred np to whito bea
"I must decline to be annoyed any further
the subject," muttered Grant between his teel
"and desire the interview should terminate/
"You and your desires may go to hell !" roi
ed out Ross.
"Leave tho room, sir ! Leave the room,
I shall force you out 1" thundered Gvanr.
Ross took" his departuro ace irdingly, it
larrible rage, quitting tho White House li
one rushing from a plague, and hurried to t.
capitol. President Graut threw himself inte
chair thc moment the door closed and wip
bis brow with bis pocket handkerchief, evider
ly rory much agitated. Old Zach Chandler a
proacbed and was thus addiessed by the Pre;
"Excuse me for a few moments, senate

The Cuban Question Before tito Cabine
-Spanlab Insolence to bo Rcoufced
Conservative Views of Secretary Fis?
?-.Recognition of Cuban Independence
Favored by the Rest of tbe Cabinet.
A Washington dispatch, of the 12th inst.
to the New York Herald, says :
The Cuban question has boen very much dis
cusaed here to-day, and from all lhat eau b<
learned from official quarters it seems not ai
all improbable that trouble will grow out of thc
late iifraction of international Jaw by th<
officers of Fernando Cat?lica in the seizure ol
two passengers from an American brig. It ii
well known herc that tho Cabinet is not a unil
on the question of Cuban recognition. Thc
matter was seriously considered al tbo Cabinet
meeting on Friday last ; bur, though no deci?
sion was arrived at, thc views of each member,
except perhaps Rawlins, bec mi ; known. Sec?
retary Fish expressed very conservative views,
Ho felt as much sympathy for tho struggling
Cubans, as any man, and earnestly hoped thal
their efforts to achieve independence might be
crowned with success ; but al the same time
he deprecated any official protiunctamenlo on
tho part of the admiuiBtaation in favor of one
side or the other. He thonght tc chou ld be the
policy of tho United States to remain perfe :tly
neutral, and to adhere rigidly to tho old doc?
trine of non-intervention. In hie opinion
Cuba's destiny was annexation, wbioh wonld
come at no diutant Jay without any action on
the part of this governmoir.. "Let Uer alone,"
said Fish ; "give her a chance single bauded
to woik out her own destiny, and she will
gravitate towards tho republican Union in
spite of every obstacle. Spain will soon tire of
resisting tho mandates of tate. Proud though
she be, the old Castiliau monarchy will find
that she cannot afford to continuo her efforts
to crush out tho free aspirations of the repub?
lican senitfarat of Cuoa. It is enterprise too
costly and tnnst bo abandoned sooner or later.
But let the United .Stiles interfere, and Spain
will not cniy exhaust her own resources to pro
vent our acquisition of tho island, but she will
draw to ber assistance the combined strength
'pf Englaul and Franco, and wo will have to
combat a -oalition ropnsennnsr tho most p_iw
crlul military and uaval forces in Europe. Why
tempt this contest unnecessarily? Why drag
the republic into a formidable war, when it
bas but just emerged from the most formidable
civil strife in the annals of history! What wo
need now is peace-peaco. unless preserved at
the sacrifice of honor, a aacrifleo wnicli is not
even iu question in tho present condition ot
affairs." Such aro thc views ot Premier Fish,
who belongs to tho old conservativo school,
and who is hardly equal to tue live issues of
tho hour. Grant has great conlidcncs iu his
Secretary of Slate; and though his private
views are believed not the same, still it is feared
tue foreign policy of tho admatratioti will be
shaped and guided bv Mr. Fish. Other mem
bors of tho Cabinet aro diametrically opposed
to the moderate poh?y c.misfiled by tho Sec?
retary of State. Some of thom urpe prompt
and vigorous acton, and want, tho President to
proclaim a bold anJ manly poli \v iu regard io
Cuba. Borie a id Creswell aro said to be quito
enthusiastic in their advoc icy of Cuban recog?
nition. They believe tvo have had enough ot
truckling and subserviency to monarchic il iu
ter. sta under tho specious pretext, of tito sa?
credness of int-rnational law, and that the
t:mo bas corni when wc ought to talco a fresh
Btart, not only rcannouncing tho Monroe doc?
trine, but proclaiming to tho world our inten
tion to swop from tho continent tho Jaat
vestige of monarchical domination. Since the
nowa of the insult to tho American flap, involv?
ed in the seizure of passengers from an Amer?
ican brig, the feelings of Boric and Cresswell,
and pcrhaos other mombors of the Cabinet,
have been tnrned more strongly m th6 channel
of Cuban sympathy, and a moro vigorous policy
has been urged upon General Grant. Leading
senators and representatives, among the latter
Genet al Banks, have waited upon the Presi?
dent and Secretary Fish, and counselled an im?
mediate demand of a batisfactory explanation
from Spanish authorities. But Fish still hugs
conservatism to his bosom, and repeats his
timid warnings about the dangers of a war
with Spain, England and France. He tastes
that bo has os yet received no official informa?
tion concerning"tho alleged outrage, and that
in tho absooco of such knowledge he einnor,
with propriety, act.
In striking contrast with this Blow coach
policy of Fish is the practical course ot Vice
Admiral Porter. He would not wait for his
subord nates to send along their dispatches
whenever it might suit their conveoience. but
immediately telegraphed to Admiral Hoff to
make a report of the facts connected with the
supposed outrage, and to promptly adopt such
measures as tho national honor might demand.
In tho first place, Porter don't hesitate to pro?
claim on which side aio his sympathies, aud
in thc second place, he believes a national in?
sult should be avenged without tho interven?
tion of red tape. The Vice-Admtral, if ho had
his way, would not only order his subordinates
to give tho nrona Spaniard Jossio if ho has in?
sulted our flag, but, insult or no insult, would
lot filibusters go away unmolested to tho aid
and deliverance of the Cubans. Porter thinks
the Cubans ought to ba recognized, holding
that they are now in a bettor condition than
the South was when Europe accorded her bel?
THE ENGLISH COTTON TE AD E.
Smith, Edward! ?t Co.'? 51on t h 1 y Cotton
ADELAIDE BUILD ENOS, CHAPEL STET ET, )
LIVERPOOL, April 1,I860. |
Daring the month of March our market was
quiet till near the close, when a decided im?
provement occurrod which raised prices on
tho spot jd. to Jd. per lb. above tho opening
prices, but Jurats to arrive have been advance
ed id. to |d. per lb.
We still cotimnte the consumption of the
Kingdom at 16,00(1 bales per week, tue same as
in our last issue. Tho average deliveries du?
ring the sevon weeks of dullness, from the 4th
February to25tb March, were 45.000 per wook
from Liverpool and London, and as there can
be no doubt that the stock held by spinners is
decidedly less now than it was at the beginning
of that period, it seems thct the average con?
sumption during that time cannot have boon
much under 50,000 bales per week. We there?
fore thi ik that our estimate ol 40,000 bales per
week as the existing rate of consumption for
the whole Kingdom is, perhaps, folly low, and
we rather incline to think that 48,000 or 50,000
bales will bo tho rate before long.
lt will be noticed that thc deliveries to the
trado from London th s year are much above
tho average, being 8600 bales per week up to
this date, and the stock thero is now leduoed
to 77,000 bales, against 70,000 bales last year.
Thc average deliveries to the trade from the
two ports up to tbis dato now stand at 52,700
balee, against 65 300 bales last year showing a
deficit in their takings of about 150 000 bales.
It is believed that our spinnors now are entirely
bare of stock, and probably hold 100,000 bales
below what tboy did at this time last year.
Tho money market daring tho post month
bas remained easy and without change, the
rates for tho best bills in the London market
being occasionally a fraction below (he bank
rato ol three per cent. There seems little
chnnce of any change at present.
Tho prospects of our market-it must bo al?
lowed by all-liavo undergone a change during
tho past nionih, and that change has been in
the daection of higher prices. The current of
feeling wntch prc vail ua iiv?ianA??-'-i--.Ut.
?an, ftuil IA ennui erteilt altin boro, in favor of
lower prices, has passed away, and the preva
lont opinion now among intelligent mcu is in
favor of a higher seato of erices baing main?
tained fur along time to come.
Tue chief agent in effecting this change has
been tho extremely dUappointing oat-turn of
Ibo American crop ; tho receipts throughout
March have only averaged 37,000 bales per
week, against 64 000 bales last year, and tho
total deficiency in receipts at the por s, as
compared with last year, has run np to the
alarming figure of BOiiietbiDR over 100,000 bales.
\gainst this, it is alleged that some increase
JOS gone overland, to American spinners, but
the data on this head aro not very reliable. It
must bo admitted that these figures give a far
smaller crop than was once expected ; indeed,
it is difficult to avoid tho iuference that the
total will fall below last year. At all events, it
seems protty certain that the receipts at the
ports will do so -perhaps to a very considerable
extent. No doubt it ia still alleged by some
pan ies in America that receipts are held back
in thc interior partly from bad roads and
partly fr. m a speculative spirit among
planters, but we do not think that Ibis ex?
planation can bo relied upon; the decline in re?
ceipts has been so uniform at all points that it
indicates apparent Iv tho approaching exhaus?
tion of the crop. Nor does it seem at all likely
that planters will hold on to an article that is
pay mg them a profit of 100 per cent. As to the
badness of tho roads, we behove that an unusu?
al amount of rain has fallen in tho Sooth, bnt
the same cause hos mad? all the rivers navi?
gable, and thereby drained the most distant
sections, and we should think this has com?
pensated for any difficulty in hauling to interi?
or depots. Altogether, wo find it impossiblo
to believo that this year will be so different
from all past ones as to bring to light a largo
amount of cotton during April and May, when
February and March have shown a constant
unbroken dwindling of receipts, and that with
fall livers and most tempting prices lo the
plarrter. Wo confess wo see no valid ground
for believing that tho receipts at tbe ports for
the remainder of tho season will exceed the
samo period last year, when thoy reached about
250 000 bales.
When we look at tho figures of foreign ex?
ports tho caso seems even more alarming.
Tb ero is now a deficiency of 300,000 bales in
tho export to Great Britain, as compared with
last year, and also 30,000 baies to tho conti?
nent We do not see how these figures can
be materially reduced. Th:re is ouly an ex?
cess of about 100,000 bales in the American
ports ovor lastyem; but American spinnors, wo
believe, will rcquiro more than during the re?
mainder ot last boason, and, therefore, we do
not see bow tho deficit in export to Europe
oan be less than 250 000 bahs o it of this crop,
and it may bc considerably more, and. further,
if. is obvious thu noarly all of it will fall upon
this country. Amore alarming fact thauthis
it is difficult to conceive, tor we were stinted
in our supply of Amsrican cotton last year, so
much that nur stock in warehouse hero was
run down to oue week's consumption before
tbe neworop arrived, and it is easy to perceive
that a severe economy must be practiced this
ve tr to cut down the deliveries further by
200,000 or 250,000 bales.
When wt rotura toother sources ol supply
the prospocls do not brighten. The accounts
from ludia that wo most rely on reiterate what
we stated in our lust issue, that tho exports for
this your will fall largely below iho past ono.
From Egypt. Brazil and minor sources, wo are
receiving -about tue samo supply, so that it
seems moro than likely that tho deficit in our
total import of cotton this yoar will considera?
bly exceed 250,000 bales. Meanwhile spinners
hold no stock hero or on the Continent. Stocks
ot goods, also, arc very low. so that thero ia no
"buffer" to break tho effect of a iainiuo supply
of the nw material.
Under those oircnmatanoes wo might calcu?
late on mu :h extltcinont and a heavy rise of
pn.es wcro tho old speculative spirit afloat m
thia couut-y. but times aro much changed.
Thc manufacturing interest is impoverished,
tho speculative spirit is weak, and jvery one
dreads and deprecates high prices, and lends
as little help as p -ssiblo to foreo them up.
Tho shippers of goods fi ora Manchester get no
en.'our.igement from distant markets; India re?
mains stagnaut, and returns considuraoly less
than current Manchester costs! moat of tho
foreign marketa aro in the same way, and thero
is little probabi it y ol' any urgent demand for
uoous such as would rapidly raise prices in
Manchester. Wo believo a very cautious siirit
will prevail among shippers o' goods so long
as theso high pnces 1.si. and (bis will go On?
to eb eek speculation iu the raw materia'. Still
I it cannot bo .euio ? Ihatsomo moderate activi?
ty of mide is now duo i" Manchester, und if it
be cvoi suHieic?t to keop tlif) ira lo baying
from nur market 50.000 bales per week, it will
act upon prison.
A largo export demand has fairly set in, and
as lliore is now groat scarcity ol cotton on
the Continent, and very little afloat from Amer?
ica for that quarter, it seems likely that a brisk
demand may continue for some time. Tbeso in?
fluences appear to bo in favor of our market,
and, taken in connection with the miserably
poor prospects of future supply, would seem to
Justify our present range of prices, and possi
ily some further advance sooner or later.
THE TWITCHELL CASE.
Detailed Statement from Mrs. Twitchell
-Sho Denies all Knowledge of tbe
Crime-She Believes he?.Hasband tho
Murderer-Letters and Confessions
from her Husband Produced-The Con?
demned Man Appeals to his Wife to
I Mrs. Twitchell bas furnished to the press of
Philadelphia a full statement in regard to the
murder of her mother. It is very long, cover?
ing several columns of the papers. She disa?
vows any knowledge of how or by whom the
murder was committed.
She says that sho rode ont with her husband
on tbe afternoon of the murder. He did not
seem disposed to enter into any conversation.
When thoy returned she found ber mother
agreeable. George S. Twitchell, ber husband,
coming in shortly afterward, he took tea, and
she bad a conversation with ber mother. She
(Mrs. Twitchell) went to bod, her mother say?
ing sho would wait for tho girl. Her mother
accompanied her to her room, conversed pleas?
antly, and went out. In a short time George
came into tho room, undressed and oamo to
bed. Sho was soon asleep, and was awakened
hythe girl .ringing the bell. She cannot say
whetbor Georgo was asleep or not, but thinks
ho was not. ate said George, "fhatmustbo
tbe girl." He replied that he sup nosed it was,
but ma le no attempt to get up. Sho then went
into tbe ehtiy, callod her mother, bnt received
no reply. Sbo r?turned to hor room for her
clothing, when Georgo got up and said, in an
abrupt manner, "You como to bed and 1 will
go down and lot the girl in." Hie remained in
her room until she heard tbe girl speak of ber
mother, when she flow down stairs and saw her
This ie all she knew of the murder. She
knew nothing of her husband's ousiness but
bis own statement that he was doing well. She
visited him in prison until the plot wau arrang?
ed for ber to make a false confession, which
she would not enter into, and kopt away from
The first lotter received, through the Bev.
Mr. Briughurat, is dated March 7, io which
Twitchell says he has just listened toan exhor?
tation upon the first chapter of James, suffi?
ciently plain to make evident the need of a
Saviour. He Fays : "Dear Camilla, please
don't neglect the salvation of your soul I
Though wo must soon part here, ob 1 let me
feel before I go tbat you will try to live so that
yon will meet me above, where there will be no
more Borrow and parting. Dear Camilla, I
want you to feel before I go that wbon yonr
time shall come I can stand and meot you on
tho pearly shores of Heaven."
A letter, dated March 8. says he has had two
hours in prayor. Ho says: "Oh, Camilla, I
always remember you in my prayers, hoping
that God will direct your heart aright, and He
will if you will now ask him. Dear Camilla,
the spirit of Chustianity is good to live with
as weN as to die with. You may think this
voiy strange language from ono who bas been
such a ecoptic and scorner as 1 have been; but
in my calamiry God has changed my heart and
shown mo tho fallacy of my ways."
A letter was received Wodncadajr before
Good Friday, being slipped in his wife's hands
by tho prisoner, giviDg her instructi ns as to
how Mrs. Twitchell should make a confession
to save his lifo. It said ho had consulted with
tho prison authorities, and they agreed with
him that bo ought to ask ber in their prcsonco
if sho knew about tho murder, end they
thought it probable abo would say "No."
Twitchell saya: "1 told thom I oxpocted you
would deny lt although I don't bolievo that
?--~ *-- -..???Wnar aboufc.it. This set their
minus at res. about mo. iou must never sn y
anything to Bringburst, for that would rum
all. I will writo out a confession for you and
Rive lt to you on Friday, and you must learn lt
thoroughly. I will also givo you all the direc?
tions hov to act; and when you do it you must
not Bay anything of this, not oven to father,
lt must bc kept perfectly secret. Camilla,
s par J me tbis b irrible, awful death I You
alone can do it. Oh ! save m J 1 Yon have got
a good heart, and I know you will do this I"
On Good Friday sho reoeived a confesaion,
written for her to moko, saying: "I tell you
nothing oise can save mo but thia, and thia
will positively do it." This directs his wife to
confess that Joseph Gilbert, one of the princi?
pal witnesses for the Commonwealth, and tl<:
Lee, a gambler, did the murder, ehe being in?
strumental in aiding them. A hellish set of
instructions for her guidance wero drawn up,
saying: "Now, dear Camilla, I have done ali
that I can; it remains for you do to do the rest.
Wheo you come in my cell the next time you
bring oithor lite or death with you. Remomber,
this, I know from tho very best authority, will
aavo my life." Another lotter Bays : "Camila,
here are two confessions; choose which one you
please. First, you killed your mother for money,
so you need not give a deed of trust for the
house; yon put hnsban i's shirt and coat on, BO
if you got ulood on them it would look as
though your husband had the clothes on.
Second, you did not doit, nor did yon see it
done, but you know thal yonr husband did not
do it; you bad mado arrangements with Gil?
bert to have it done." All of the letters aro in
the handwriting of Twitchell beyond shadow
A TRAGEDY IN MARYLAND.
A Young Lady Deliberately ?hoots Her
The quiet village of Jarrott*ville, Harford
County, Maryland, was thrown into a state of
tho utmost excitement and contusion by a
tragedy which occurred in its boanda on Satur?
day evening last, about six o'clock.
Nicholas MoComas, a young man, living
about two miles from the village, was shot,
and almost instantly killed, by Mies Hartha J.
Cairns, who resides the some distance from
Jar re tts ville, but in a different dire . t ion from
it than the houao of McComas. The accounts
given or the melancholy affair render it certain
tbat McComas seduoed Misa Cairns over a
?ear ago, under a promise of ma triage, and in
anuary last a child waa born, which is living
at tbe present time. Miss Cairns frequently
importuaed McComas to fulfil hts promise of
marrying ber, but by equivocations and ex?
cuses be bwded her requests until she felt to?
ward him no oihor feeling than utter hatred
and 'loterminatinn to avenge ber injuries. On
Saturday evening hs bad ridden into Jarreits
vilie for tho purpose of attending a meeting
of a militia company, of which ho was a mem?
ber, and at the time of the murder was
in the yard at the rear of the tavern. Miss
Cairns followed bim to Jarrottaville, and, ar?
riving at tbe tavern, dismounted trom ber
horse, fastened him securely, and passing into
thc ladies' apartment, removed her riding
skirt, her hat and other iucumbrances that
might retard her movements. Leaving the
ladies' apartment, with a Colt's revolvor in ber
band, she walked directly through tbe bar?
room, which was full of men, aud stepped out
upou a hack porch which overlooked the yard
wbero McComas was. Standing in tho door?
way opening Iron thc bar on tho porch, abo
took deliberate aim with her pistol at M iComaa
and fired, ho being scarcely ten paeou distant
from her. Tho bullet struck him in the breast,
and as bo reeled wildly toward the pillars which
hold up tho porch-, nho fired two more shots,
neither ol which took cffjct. He clasped tho
pillais of thc porch and endeavored to sustain
himself by them, but weak from tho rapid How
of blood from tho wound, his strength failed
him and ho foil to tho ground. She walked
directly up to him, and standing over
him. fired thc two last shots from her revolver
into his body, one lodging in bis right leg, and
thc other iri tho groin. S;ill carrying hor re?
volver in her band, she passed bock through
thc ctowd of men, who, aa if stricken senseless
by Hie aw;ul scene bciug enacted bef-oro their
eyes, did not movo a linger to bar her passage.
Alouc tho porch, thr ugh the barroom, aud
b iol; to tho ladies' apartment sbo walked with?
out showing a traen ot emotion or a qualm of
nervousness. In the dressing room ehe re?
sumed her riding habit, and again mounting
her liorso. sho galloped back toward her homo,
and had gone a considerable distanoe Irom tho
village before any one thought ot" following
har. Mr. Jarrett rode nf er hor, and joining
her about a mile from Jarrelteville, ahe asked
bim if McComas was dead. Ho replied yes,
when she said, "I told him what I was going
todo." She exhibited DO signa of regr
was apparently as composed as if ehe L
finished the most ordinary action.
On Sunday sh o rode to Bei lair and go
self up to the authorities. Miss Cairns i
thirty, and McComas was thirty-seven 3
age. Both the parties belonged to hit
epcctable families, and held a foremost 1
in ?ho social life of the connty. The lei
excitement in regard to this act of su
retribution nins very hi?h in tho nei
hood, but public opinion is generally
side of Miss Cairns. McComas is snppi
have been killed by the first shot which
him, and the last two shots were probabl
into his dead body. Some time 'inc<
Cairns brought suit against McCom
breach of promise and seduction, but tl
has not jet como to trial.
