Among these are the nominations of Ministers to Austria, Prussia, Mexico, Hayti, Con sular Geueralrto Havana, Commis sioners of Agriculture, and several Collectors and Assessors of the Rev enue, and jpostmasters.- . . It is. quite certain that Mr. Ray mond will be nominated for Minister to Austria. Mr. Bancroft's name will, of course, be sent in for the Prussian Ministry, and probably that of Gen. Thomas Kilby Smith for Consul to Havana. " The Hon. Mr. Campbell, late United States Minister to Mexico, arrived here last night, and had an interview with the Assistant Secretary of State. It appears Mr. Campbell had pre-emp-tory orders from Mr. Seward to re main in New Orleans, and no orders to go to Mexico in search of Presi dent Juarez were received by him until the first of the present month. The in structions then giten him were to proceed to Mexico' and take his sta tion near President Juarez, but no method of conveyance was indicated by which he could get there. Mr. Campbell, it seems, was ill with au attack of fever, when these instruc tions reached ;him. He at once "set about procuring a vessel for the jour ney, but was tunable to obtain any. Finding there was no means of trans portation, he telegraphed to the De partment to have a vessel assigned for his use, "Which request was refused. As his orders were emphatic to join the Mexican President, and he found it impossible to do so, except by jour neying overland with blanket and haversack, he telegraphed to Mr. Sew ard tendering his resignation, which was accepted, and another Minister appointed. -The Herald' North Platte corre spondent says intelligence was brought in this morning by a party of inde pendent scouts from the Pawnee Reservation, that a large band of hos tile Sioux suddenly appeared and sur rounded the , Pawnee Reservation, twepty miles northwest of Columbus, Nebraska. There is great excitement, of course, among the Indians and white settlers, and the worstjesults are reasonably anticipated. The scouts have traveled fast, for the purpose of procuring immediate relief. A band of Pawnee Indians, tribal relatives of the warriors on the war-path, are en camped tweuty miles west of Omaha. These will be afforded every possible means of rushing to the rescue. The scouts will also aid them to the best of their ability.

The prisoner's hair was short then of a dark brown color. I did not per ceive it was dyed, but afterwards found it out in conversation that even ing. Gen. Lapierre went to Quebec with us, and when we got to Quebec, we had breakfast on the steamer at seven or eight o'clock, and betweeu nine and ten o'clock the passengers were transferred to the steamer Pe ruvian. Upon reaching the Peruvian, Lapierre said to me in Surratt's pres ence, he wished me to let Surratt oc cupy my room till the steamer left, and I did so, and he occupied my room untii the steamer left. The steamer left in half an hour, and Lapierre went ashore. That day, I remember, either after lunch or dinner, the pris oner came to me, and pointing to one of the passengers, asked' me if I knew who he was; I said I did not know Surratt said he thought the man was an American detective, and was after him ; I told hita I .

Mr. Bradley said he could uot 6ee where the evidence was tending. Judee I isher said he could nor see to what it tended; it was not Pierpont they would connect with the conspir acy: witness resumed, and said that Surratt told him he received money from Benjamin, the Confederate Sec retary ot State; the amounts he Darned were $70,000 aud $30,000; he said he was in Richmond a few days previous to its fall ; he said one day that several of them went to crossing the Potomac in a boat, when i they were oursued bv a eunboat and order ed to surrender or they would be fired upon; a small boat was sent to them,, and they fired into the small boat as soon as it came alongside.- V itness was asked to repeat this, by defence, and retorted by . telling Mr. Merrick that he (Merrick) equld un derstand it if he would keep his ears open; he (McMillan) was not to be insulted, as all witnesses had already been, and he thought the insulting of witnesses wa3 the act of a coward and saeak. Merrick asked if that was proper language for a witness to use in court. Court said it ,wa3 not, but counsel must not worry and annoy wituesses; witness said Mr. ;MerncJc had said the other day that all the witnesses ought to be in the penitentia ry, and he wanted it understood he was as good as Merrick. Witness resumed and said that Sur ratt stated that he had frequently traveled to Richmond under the as sumed names of Haversond and Sher man. Upon reaching the coast of Ireland, Surratt called tne behind the wheel-house, and remarked that he saw foreign land at last, and putting his hand upon the pistol in his pocket, he said he hoped to live to see the day when he could return and serve An drew Johnson a3 Abraham Lincoln had been served. He said also that if an English officer attempted to arrest him, he would shoot him. I told him if he did, he would meet with very little mercy in England. He replied he knew that, but he would do it never theless, for he would sooner be hung by an English jury than a Yankee one, and that if he went to the Uni ted States again he knew he would swing. - Bradley asked that the latter state ment be repeated by the reporter.
