It turns out that Governor Fish's election to the

gratulation on the part of the President, if we may
believe the Rtyublic of this morning. It Fiah is a
"silver grey," after all, Governor Seward's interest
in his suocese, presents one of the most remarka
ble instances of devoted and disinterested patriot
ism which that eminent Individual has ever been
accused of.
?But, leaving politics aside, permit me to mention 1
the fact, that Parodi's second concert, thia eve

I fee it stated in tome of your Washington cor
respondence that the case of Collector Lewis is
about to b? decided shortly; and that the only
reason why it has not been already acted upon is,
that Mr. Corwin ia sick.
I believe that Mr. Corwin, after he shall have
fully recovered hia health, (and 1 trust this will be
soon,) will be able cfFicialJy to dispel the cobweb
of slanders winch a disappointed calnl hia artfully
and wall indefatigable industry woven over Mr.
W. D. l ewis's head. Mr Gib!K>n-s I am aware,
has published a pamphlet against Mr Lewis, pur
? crting to be a resume, or a icount of the lat* in

sioner Puulevy; but it is not p?nerally known that
Mr Lewis, too, has a pam,>hkt in press, rebut

Albany, March 19, 1851.
j He Preliminary to the Election of United Scuta
Senator? Jh Important Vote toit by bring t'co
Aim uLct too Lute.
It has been anticipated that no election for
: United Statrs Senator coul i be made by the present
! Legislature under any exist.ng or prospective law,
but that matter was disposed of at two o'clock this
morning, by joint resolution. Some five or six
days since, Senator Cook, despairing ot" electing a
Senator in the usual manner, laid a notice on the
table that he would, on some future ddy, move to
susi^nd one of the rules which required all joint
resolution s to lie over one day after being ottered,
before being acted u,ion. Non .? of the \ igilant mi
! nority cculd, of cours?, know when thit
motion would be Caljed up, although they
were aware, that on the first day when all
*h? whig Senators w re present, and one or two
j democrats were absent, then it was probable that
the eliort would be m ide. On Saturday every
whig Senator appeared in his pla:e, numbering se
venteen, all U'lJ : though upon the question of &
^.-?pension of the rules it wis well known that Mr.
; Beekman would not go with his party friends. On
that day, also, the democrats were all pre.-ent.
That afternoon, Senator Brandreth took a trip to
Sipg Sing, iutecdirg to remain a few days. On
Mucday mcrniag Senatoi Dar: F'at^d that he was
unexpectedly caiud to the city of New York, and
rsqui-sud that the resolution might not be called u,>
untii hie return, ecJ made an arran?em*nt with
Senator Croliua to " pair oil"," upon the taking* of
' political uestiors. On Tuesday mornijj, as soon
as the order of bujints. for ofl'erin? reoolvtions ar
! rived, Senattr Conk, observing 'ht a'vsen.eof both
Mr Hranorethaa 1 Mr Dart, sprung his resolution
?ufp> ndirg the join', rule aforea&i.i. Th ? deinocra
! tie minority being thus unexpecte !'r pomced upon
I wtnle two <f iheirmembtrs w? re ahseflt, relied
Uf on the oppoi rfion of Senators Baticock indO<veu,
bo h of whom the elrepy silver grays have clai.ned
i all the fttucu Those two votes, or either one,
| and aWo ihat of Mr. Beekman, known to be cer
tuin, would have defeated the springing of the
" fi|nr? oi-four." A debite occurred of two or
three hears, when, upon taking the question by
ayes and noer, the votes of the two former gen.le
rrec were given in fuvorof Mr Cook's resolution.
Before the vote wis sinouneed, Senator Maun
challenged the vote ot Mr. Schoonmaker, on the
ground that he was a member of Congress, and
therefor' not *ctit!ed to a vote in the Senile of tlie
State of New York. The whig majority, of course,
sustained the vote, as it was tor th it vote mainly
that Mr. S. ha* !>een compelled to li lzard his seat
in Cosgress The motion to rescind w as carried
; by s mijontT of two vot--s.
' About this time, the news s,reid av?out thecitv
that the democrats had been caught nappiug, and
that a Senator wus that day to be chosen. The
lobbies, atte-roome, aud even the floor of th?* Ss
nat? chumber, scon berime thrunced with specta
tors It seemed as if the people rushed in torrents
to ? itr? ss the scene then enacting.
Mr Mann, and other d-mocratic Senators, being
thuji tfk'-n unprepared, desired in tor oik*, ion whe
tier thee was any necessity fjrthai kind of action;
and Mr Baboock, the whig < hiel counsellor, was
? apjealed to for tin answ er Now, Mr. B , being a
mode I of d'cuity, i almn*s*. and sedateness, has
been looked u^on with the hix heat respect, and
wasejjected to autwer the interrogatory, as he
uniforr ly h?? done every oth*r, wa;h clearness and
, precision H.s re,ly wa?, thit he koew of no p->?
litical object in view, and th .t he relied altogether
uj<in tin- ?taum*nt made by Src 'or Cook, that the
crowd of business before the S Bute demanded the
tctpentioa ct the rule, in order to got the two
j bouses closer together. Tue rule was, of course,
j suspended.
Immediately opm that f?ct being ancotmee I,
Mr '>*en,u, to that n.T?i< nt s'tp.osed to Uc all

By the late news from Central Americe, you
have perceived that the English government, by it J
intrigues, haa made further encroachments on that
country, through Sir Charles Grey, the Governor
of Jamaica. Hostilities had actually broke i ou*
between the States of San Salvador and Guate
mala, occasioned by Biitish interfereoce, and the
latter State had called on Great Britain for aid.
Since thee, you have seen the graphic account of
he arrival of His lloyal Highness, the Mo^uito
King, at San Juan de Nicaragua, or Grey Town,
I nd'the sumptuous bancuet prepared for him by II.
i B M's Consul at that place.
As the question of the right of Nicaragua to the
Mosquito territory, is becoming daily vested with
, reater importance, I will give you, tor the benefit
of your readers, a short account of tne kingdom
tod its king.
The preuentchief, King or the Mosquito Territory,
as England has thought pro. er to sty le h m, is u
d'npy colored lad, between seventeen ar l eighteen
veers cf age, who his obtained, through the bug*
lish, a EmatteriDg of education. He is a lineal de
scendant cf those who were chief cains of that tribe
of Indian* befcre their alliance wi h England, and
of their so-called kings since. The Mosquito coun
try was an independent territory, occupied by the
most warlike tube of any of the aborigines of Cen
tral America, before the Spanish invasion, and in
the exterminating warfure of that coji'iest they,
end another independent tribe, who still exis. in
the country lying between the Mo^u-toes on t.ie
ecet and San Salvador on the west, were the only
people who rolled back the tide or^yin^hrici0^,
a?d preserved their tenitcry. The t.ondi r( i, M
caragua, and all the other tribes of Central A?-'1
can Indians, submi ted to tne power ol a, i:i, an
the des.otUm of her vice-regal represent i\e.
The Mosquitoes warred constantly and 6U-ces.

! The first connection cf Great Britain with the
Mo-iuitoes, took place after England hid ac?vnre<i
tie Island of Jamaica, during the protectorate of
Cromwell, wh-?n the inhabitants Lnowa as Ma
I r i. ens and occupying the mountains, broke out .n
j r- bell. on. and committed the
1 ties on the other inhabitants. The Urwisn troot3
at Jan-tica not being in sufiicient force ?o pr?ven
I these attacks, the natives from the Mo.^atto couu
I try were hiied io come to their
hence the alliance between the chiet of J
?n.l the Enelish Governor. llns alliance
was renewed under successive governors, until the
Xw. cl Orev Town, us ft is now called as
a tiadinz tort and market to purchase the hae
and co?tlv dyes and woods, developed itself,
wh?nThe chief was, by British policy, made
a crowned kirz, thit fo cou.ia of England
irieht enter into a royal alliance, Jcc. .. on
enuil terms with him. By this farce was
laid th?* g- rm of British iaterf-renee in Central
Amenci.li alldirs. Tne coram-tcial treaties of

republics brought half a djy.cn IcUiinan^ for thc

a verdict of fl,000, tad the old bachelor appealed.
The majority oi the court confirmed the judgment,
hat JeMtee Koet disarmed. on the gvowdtkM there
wis no lew which provided for such a cue; that
there waa no contract proven between the parties,
and as the plaintifl had contracted a inmUge with
another person only two months afterwards, he
thought there was no damage done, and that the
judgment should be reversed
Another funny suit is also pending in oae of oar
courts The plaintiff is the lovely little daiwuu,
M'lle Baron, who sueaTom Placide, of the Varie
ties, for a breach of contract, not of marriage, but
ot dancing. She alleges that Thomas engaged her
at a cei tain rate in the city of Paris, to dance in
the bulltt coryt at his theatre here, for a certain
time, according to contract passed at Paru, and
signed by them both. The cause of the falling out
between Placide and the fair 11 iron, is not ex
plained; but for some reason the black eyed beauty,
to the regret of many admirers, left the theatre,
and brought this action for a violation of the con
tract. The case was set for trial a few days ago, and
it being understood that the charming dmuust,
Hilariot. and several young ladies of ttie ballet corps,
were to De present as witnesses, the young Barris
ters of our city were thrown into great agitation.
Accordingly, the court room was crowded with
kid gloved gentleman of the jgreen bag, and a num
ber of mustachioed dxtttnguis, anxious and curious
to hear what would be the nature of me testimony
which the fair witnesses are to awear to. T<vo
young lawyers, who were at the time trying a dull
promissory note case, immediately vested it with
great importance on the entree of the ladies, and
evinced an extraordinary zeal and display of elo
queuce in their cauae, much to the dissatisfaction
and annoyance of the uu lience. But th-iir anxiety
was toon put an end to, hy it being announced that
the case wasconnnued; and, greatly disappointed,
the audience retired, following the ladies out of
court, to get one last, lingering look.
M'lle Celestioe Franck, and her ballet orps, has
returned to our city, and are playing at the St.
Charles Old Chippendale, the manager of Pla
cide's Varieties, with Mr. and Mrs Howatd, Hol
land, Bafs, and Daws >n, are still drawing line
houses. Our old friend, J. M. Field, the talented
writer, poet, and acter, has made a great hit this
fenson, with his theatrical corps, at Mobile, and
gained renewed populirity himself. By the w ly,

Wilt Caie.
Yesterday being the closing day of the session or
the Medical College of tais State, and, moreover,
the anniversary of the commencement of the in
stitution, it was celebrated with appropriate cere
monies. Dr. Mott, the Dean of the Faculty, deli
vered the customary address, before a large au
dience assembled in the hall of the medical school.
It was.listened to with much attention, and no little
interest, by all pretent. He was followed by Chief
Justice Eustis, the President of the University,
who highly complimented the faculty of the col- ;
lege, to whese strenuous exertions, he said, the :
university was indebted for its renown and pros
perous condition. Thirty-seven students, who had
satisfactorily passed their examinations, had de- ;
gress conferred ui-on them: and the session of the
college for the present term was then declared
On Monday night, an ?ccurrenc of somewhat a
tragical nature, took place at a collie house on the
corner of Circus and Com non streets. An alter
cation having arisen between a Capt. Warreaton,
and a man of the name of Gritiith, words so >n led
to a more drsp'rate means of settlement, and Capt.
W. fell to the I'oor with a severe wound in his ate
domen, inflict* <1 l>y means of a stab with a bowie
knife. Capt. W. was immediately carried to a
neighboring hospital, where, after lnzerin? for
twenty-four hours in great agony, ho expired.
Griffith was arrested yesterday inoroinj, an! wis
confronted with his dying victim last night. War
renton recognt/' d the mm, and swore tint he was
the person who had stabbed him < rriffith is to be
examined to-day. lie strenuously denies b.ing the
person who iullictc.l the wound.
The celebrated Mcl>onougU will ca*e will be
argued here, in the I . S. District Court, som- time
during the ensuing week. It is attracting much
attention, no less oa account of the magnitude of
the interests involved, than from the celebrity of
the counsel engaged < n cither side. The nltiiiiite
sad final decision will, of course, be given by the
I . S. Supreme Court.

Hon. Daniel Webster and tl?e Fugitive
Blare Iteaeve In Boston.
The following letter ha* been addressed to tha Mayer
of Boaton, by lion. Daniel Web?ter, ralatlva to the
lata raaeua of a fugitive alava ia that alty
WiSHii'.TON, March 10, ISM.
Sir The President baa bad tha pleasure to receive
your latter ot tha 16th February, aaeloalag official
copiee of tha order and re?clvs* lately adapted by tha
two braaebea of the g overument of the oity of Boaton.
It afforda htm great aatiafaotion to perceive that
anch measure* havo been taken by tha anthorltiee ot
Boaton aa give aaaurance tbat ao other outrage, similar
to that which was, h? presumes, the immediate came
of their adoption, ?U1 be permitted to take plaoe lu
yonr sit v.
From his earliest youth, ha has bssn aooustomad to
regard with the greatest reapeot aad veaeration the
eity of Beaton, and the commonwealth of Massa
Be haa been taught to believe that their Inhabi
tants were, aim em above ail other*, the frieada of order
and good government; intelligent enough to appreci
ate the eattntagre ot free inatitutiona of their own
(boioa. and capable ot understanding and resolving
that great political problem, ot the compattfeUity ot
irosdom with order ot lib. n y dintinguished from licen
tiousness, and of aelt government tne farthest remov
ed from the diinf era of anarchy; that they were espe
daily devoted to the uuiou ot the States, and to the
constitution which ertablmned. and atill maintain*
that Union; acd tbat tr>eir patriotism would never
fail to conn* el them toiulblull their obligations under
the constitution, justly and fully, and in the vary
spirit in which such obligations were entered into by
their renowned aneeetois.
Kctsrtalulng these sentiments, It was difficult for the
President to credit the accounts which were raoeived
ot the outrage on all la#, perpetrated in Boston, on the
16th of February last.
That a prisoner, In lawful custody, within the walls
of the Court Uoupe. in the centre ot the oity, and in
full sight of the offices of the municipal authorities,
tad been, at noonday, lorcibly retoued, by a mob or
one or two hunar?d persons, irom the ofiijers ol the
law, cariitd c ut ot the building and through the pub
( llo streets, in a sort of triumpn. and enabled to enjape
altogether, without an attempt on the part o! any of
the authoritea. or any of the oitisens, to preserve or
der and maintain the law or to purine and retake the
iutfitive. was a siauaent that seemed to him too lia
piobaLle to be true
It waa Kith a leeling of grrat relief that he received
useh explanation* '1 tills strange occurrence at
!howedit to hare ben u i entire surprise upon the
citizens, at d upon the authorities: an act of suaces*.
; lul temerity, on the part of a very inconsiderable
I cumber of perron*, which only needed to have been
apprehended the shortest tim? beforehand to have
I been prevented.
I The President U confident that ths great majority
ol the citizen* ot Us tun are entirely loyal to the
I constitution, thai they view with juat indignation
all such outrages, aad all attempt*, whether by writ
ing or speaking to incite the ignorant and unthink
ing to such acu of vioianoe, and that they are rea ly
to dltcherge the duties in -.urn bent on thorn, by the
conctitution and lawe ot tte United States, faithfully
and fenrlesMy. under all circumstances, whenever
called upon by the proper authorities.
The occurrence of cbe l,">th Februarv is crtalnly
I greatly to tie regretieO as it gives oocasion te those
not unwilling to rnia u;-?a it to question the di<pn
dtion of your Miow-ci liens to comply with their
constitutional oHigatiou* in goo 1 faith; and the his
tory of such an outrage is spread far and wi le, reachn*
where an explanation of it m-?v nev.r follow, and
ereatea ill feelings towards those whose only connec
tion with it Is, that they were resident* ot the plaoe
in whtoh it was perpetrated. But if, as the President
doubt* not it will, this event shall arouse the atten
tion ol a'lgood eliixns to a sense of the dangers to
be apprehended from the inculcation ol such doctrines
aa hate been spread abroad in the country, tending
to ehake the authority of all law, to unsettle sooiety,
and t> i:b. t've men irorn all civil and moral obliga
tion!, and shall put them on th-ir guuj again*: the
further diffusion of suen pernicious sea'.imeuts, it
us/, in the end be productive of happy results; aud,
certainly, the elmoit unanimous expr?<Mon of indig
nation which it called forth among your eitUsns, ba
lance*, to *omc extent, the ill effect flowing trom it.
The Prut 1 lent dees not dou'.t that ti. ! people of
Maseai hutrtt* i : : ? ly ? >? 1 understood the dit'.erease
between the fteest oUcnseton of political measures,
and oppesition t > legal enactment* already made and
f*tabliehed. lie ia quite cure tbat they regard the
law of th? land DKait sentiment. or an opiamn g but
aa a rule of conduct prescribed by the general aithori
ty. and which all are nound to obey, at tke risk ot the
penalties attached to Us violation.
The President directs me to tender you hlf tbmka
lor the tranimif-ion of th? rerelution*.

With great respect,
