A telegraphic despatch was received here to day
which ststes that a collision had taken place between
Ihe United States authorities and the free State men, by.
whioh the town of Lawrence was destroyed and a num
ber f persons killed. It has caused the most intense
excitement. I saw the President this evening, and he
expresses some doubt as to its authenticity. One
despatch is dated Louisville, whereas it should come
from St. Louis to be authentic.

A proposition has been submitted by the New York

Then look at the attempted patent exteoeioes. Senator
James ha* Introduced a bill which 1* intended to extend
all exiuirg patent* six year*! I sent you a oopy of th
bill, it is a curiosity. It U the object of this bill to fhi
ten upon the country an onerou* tax for a period of six
year* for the benefit of a few speculator*, and not. for th?
honest patentee*; for the moat of them hare long eince
ceased to have any pecuniary interest in their inventions.
Millions of dollars are at stake on this single bill, whloh
appear* so fair and plausible on its face. Among
others, Gocdjaar's India rubber patent and Colt's
pistol patent will be extended. Goodyear'* In
dia rubber patent was granted In X844, and ha*
never expired, and never been extended. Colt had
one patent, which expired in 1861, and on which an
extension wee refused by the Commissioner. This ia not
the one for whloh he sought a special act of Congress,
but another, which had not expired, and under which he
new belie a menepeiy, and th* on* whloh caused th* in*
veetigating committee in 1864. The Wood worth patent
bes been once, or more than once, extended, and baa ex
pired, but the lobby for that Is still strong ia the field
and urging a special act for their benefit.
The only patents whloh create any monopoly at the
present time are those in existence, and they are to be
extended by 1his bill. All can see, If they anderstand
tlese facts, that the bill ia a lobby measure entirely to
get tbe extensions of Goodyear'* and Colt's patents. The
lobby for Day against Goodyear is as strong as the lobby
for the other tide. It la, perhaps, a free fight.
In the Colt ease yon will recollect that the report of
the old Commissioner showed that he had made more
than one million of dollars when he applied far the ex
tension of his first patent. All persons Interested in
these patents have grown rieh.
If there is anything new and good In this proposed law
let us have It, hut don't force upon us an extension of all
these monopolies. Where poor Inventors have not re
ceived a proper remuneration, they oan have an exten
sion, under the old law, of seven years. That ought to
satiety any reasonable man.
hummed up, the amount at Issue in these Bohemes are
as lollows in round numbers:?
Value of railroad land, present and future... 860,000,000
Value of patent rights 10,000,000
Total 860,000,000
Is it strange, in vie * of this vast sum, that the lobby 1s
large and Impudent?that the hotel keepera grow rich
in tarnishing eplendid champagne dinnera in private par
lore?that corruption runs riot ? Does not this large
amount in part explain why certain New York editors
and poli.idans are located here for the session, and are
very busy in threats and flattery? And what do you
think of the morality of the modera politicians who
make nigger worship the eorrapt means to secure votes
for railroad ape aula tors and patent right operators, as
well ae for Preeldential candidate*?

The Sumner Affair. (
Washington, May 23, ISM.
The committee of each house took this morning the
preliminary steps for the investigation of the circum
stances attend eg the assault on Mr. Sumner, whose con
dition to day is not considered so favorable as it was yes
terday. Hie physicians forbid him leaving his room.
It havli g been suggested to the reporter that a mistake
occurred in the sketch of the report of the Senate's pro
ceedings en Tuesday last, In justioc to those more lui
mediately concerned he promptly publishes the toll ow
ing, taken from the official report:?
Mr. St'HNKB, in conolndlng his reply to Mr. Douglas,
The Benator has gone on to inrnse into his speech
the venom which has been sweltering for months, aye,
for years; and he has alleged fasts that are entirely
without foundation, In order to heap upon me soma per
sonal obloquy. I will not go Into the details whtoh have
flow* d out so naturally from his tongue. I only brand
them to bis taee ae false. I say also to that Benator,
and I wish him to bear it in mind, that no person with
the uplight form of man ean be allowed? (Hesita
Mr. Douglas?Say it.
Mr. Sumner?I will say it?No person with the up
right (turn of a man ean be allowed, without violation of
all decency, to switch out from his tosgue the perpetual
stench of offensive personality. Sir, taat Is not a pro
per weapon of debate; at least, on this floor. The
noisome, squat and namaless animal, to whieh I now re
fer, is not a proper model lor an Amerioan Senator. Will
?he Senator frost Illinois take notice f
My.Douglas?I will, and therefore will not imitate you,
Mr. Sumner?Mr. President, again the Senator has
seltehed his tongue, and sgain he (ills the Senate with
its offensive odor.
in reply to Mr. Mason, Mr. Sumnrr said:?
The Senator has not forgotten that on a former occa
sion I did something to exhibit on tbis floor the planta

now. '

Mr. Keith, betore Justice Holllngahcad. The examina

was no necessity for it, as be acknowledged that ha com"

Justice required security in the sum of owe thousand
dollars for bis appearance in court. James Magnire and
Truxton Beale, Esqrs., became his sureties.
A large number of the Maetachusetts delegates arrived
here this evenicg. Six of them were speaking of Mr.
Sumner's difficulties, when fonr declared their hearty ap
proval of the whipping, and the other two regret it only

Col. Brooks received ten letters this morning from
Boston and Naw York making terrible threats, and filled
with the lowest abuse. One writer said he would be as
sssFinated in less than tweaty-four hours; others invited
him Njrth, if he wished to be annihilated. Brooks Is
much amused by these interesting epistles.

Mr. (hirer is here. I had a talk with falm this morn'eg.
He returned from Weatport on Sunday. J ?
1 told Llm that I had btoa informed that he to ted at
Kiokapoo on tha 30th of March?made fly# Inflammatory
speeches to the invaders from Missouri.
He said ha hoped some man would testify to suoh etete
mants under oath. He would Instantly eauee him to be
arrtsted for perjury, resign bis seat in the oommlttee,
insist on being sworn In as a witness, and deny the charge
la general ana in detaU. ^
He said, on his henor as a gentleman, that he never
voted in Kaftan ; never offered to vote ; never thought or
votix g; never advised any man to vote ; but, on the con
trary, trtsd to dissuade men from voting. He made a
speech, or several speeches to the Mlesouriens ; but
instead of belrg of an inflammatory character (he said)
they were rather ultra-conservative in tone and spirit,
j Ah he will call witzesies to substantiate those state
meets, which, however, I am ready to believe without
any other evidence than his word, I will not anticipate
the testimony on this point, by stating the " polmti'''he
made in his remarks to the Missoarlsms, on the 30th of
Yesterday afternoon ths Congressional Investigating
Commission held a cejret session. Eye witness#* of the
cowardly murder of Mr. Brown, of Leavenworth, were

I went over to Platte county immediate y after dinner
in order to ascertain whether any companies of armed
men were leaving tbe State to aid in enforcing the Dra
conian code of the Batons ol Kansas.
I could ascertain nothing at Weston. I therefore went
to the vioinity of l'latte City; took supper at the house ol
a pro-slavery man, and directed and listened to the con
versation of half a dozen loungers who were oongregated
around the door. ... .
One of them remarked that he had been at Platte City
in the forenoon, and had seen "Old Dave" there, who
said that be '-didn't intend to go over to Kansas again Oil
there wus fighting to be done, end then, by G?d, he
would be round." . ? , .
I sltpt in a house near the hanks of the Missouri, and
returned to this city about ten o'olock. I met Mr. John
Hutchinson, who left Lawrence on Thursday morning and
arrived here Tart night. .
He was sent by the citizens of Lawrence with a note to
Colonel Sumner, ctmmsnder of the trcops at Fmt Lea
venworth, requesting him, if he could not assist the citi
zens in defending their town, at least to station a body of
troopB in the vicinity to prevent the mob which threat
ens ft from proceeding to sanguinary extremities. Us
deihe^msjoil'y of the Investigating Committee also sailed
on Col. Sumner for the same purpose this morning. He
replied, he wished he could do something; but he nadno
pewer to move without orders. .
Mr. Hutchinson says that a meeting of tha citizens of
I-awrence was held on Wednesday morning, to see It any
peaceable measures could be taken to prevent the mob
which threatens them from oomtng into town.
, On Tuesday evening Mr. Cox, a pro-slavery citizen of
Lawrence, at the request of Mr. William Hutchinson,
went np to Lecompton for the purpose of ascertaining
from the Marshal, L B. Donelson, If anything couldt be
dona, peaceably, to prevent the monster posse he had
summoned 1rom ente.iug ths eity. Mr. Cox staid srith
Mr. Donelson till night and returned to Lawrence on
Wedneeday morning. Ho said that he asked Mr. Doual
scn if be would bo able to control those men if tbey en
tered tbe town? , . ..
Mr. Don else n replied, " I don't know that I can.
Ha then asked tne Marshal if anything could be done
on the part of the people of Lawrenoe to prevent than

Second?'That all tha munitions of war in Lawrence
should be delivered up.
Third?That the citizens of lawrenoe should pledge
themselves implicitly to obey the present enactments of
Kansas, test oaths, taxas and ail.
Upon reeaivieg this reply, the citizana held apubUe
meeting, and drew up a letter to the Marshal, tha sub
stance of which is thus given by Mr. Hutchinson, who
was one of the crmmittee appointed to draw it up:?
"We bare reliable Information that large armed forces
have collected, in pursuanoe of your proclamation,

misunderstanding, we wish to know what jour demands

Mr. Hutchinson left Lawrence with a note to Col. Sum
ner at the time the committee left for l^oompton.
Mr. Whitney, a ci.izen of Lawrence, was despatched by
tbe people there last night, about midnight, and rode to
Leavenworth in five hours, with a note to the Cjngros

exertions to induce Ool. Sumner to protect the city.
Mr. Joeiah Miller was one af the committee appointed
to wait on Mr. Donelson for his reply to the note by the
people of lawrenoe. He went to Lecempton with his col

The purport of the Marehal's answer was that he did

later? Interesting Letter from t^erHelM.
Upon the breaking up of the greek meeting in the Pert,
on Frldey night, the men of people there present, aa if
moved by a common impulse,defiled fato Broadway, and,
aooompanted by Sbelton's band, marched up that great
therenghfare to'the Metropolitan Hotel?the preeenthead
qoartera of the Nlcaiaguan Embassy. Tfiare moat hare
been at leant ten thou said men In the precession, and
their ealm, dignified and determined appearance gave evi
dence of the latenehy of the public feeling upon the prin
ciple! that they were collected together to advoeate.
Arrived In front of the Metropolitan Hotel, tbe prooec
itoi halted in ene eompaot maae, filling the entire
street in trsnt of that great edifice. In a few momenta
Padre Vijil, the Nftarsgrun Mlnlstew, accompanied by
hie eeeretary, appeared upon the balcony of the ?ecoad
i lory, and was introduced to the aeaemWy by Appleton
Oakamtth, Esq. He waa reoelved with tremendoue a>
planee, In the midst of whlsh the band struck up the Kir
of "See the Conquering Hbro Comes," wtftle cheer after
cheer succeeded one another in auiok succession.
Am moou ae the excitement? had'a little enbeided, the
Padre, through the interpretation of Mr. Oahaeaith, made
a few brief remarks. He eaid:?
That this unexpected demonstration of tbe citi
zens of New York to do honor to the humble repre
sentative of a struggling people had so affected
htm, added to his limited knowledge of the Ame
rioen language?fbr he would not eey English'Iangosge?
that he oould say bat little; but he wee glad of this op
Krtunlty to express to the citizens ot this great repub
on behalf of the government whish he bed'the honor
to lepieeent, the high eppreeistion ia whioh they were
held by hie oouutxymeu, not alone for tbe sympathy
which had been mam ested in their behalf by private in
dividuals, but also for the recognition and countenance
which the United States as a nation had extended to sards
them. That he himself was engaged in a sacred calling
? one which leads mankind to a better and kinder appre
ciation of humanity, and brings him- nearer to his God?
bis lite was passed within the quiet preolncts of the
church, and many might think that it ill became him to
engage in a manner disconnected with his profession In
the politioal affairs ot his country. But to such- he
would say that he came here on no common mission,
there are duties whioh impel a man be-youd the ordinary
interests of Church, and State, and such are now impol
ing him in the great errand which ho has come here to
perform. He had heard for thirty years the cannon of
discordant factions booming through a land that God
had intended for a paridtse?he had seen the walls of
His sicred edifice crumble beteath the burning shot, and
its most holy sanctuary defiled to sanguinary purposes?he
had seen families divided sgainst each other and home
steads laid waste; and now, when by tne infaalon of new
elements there was a chance for all these things to end;
when his people had adopted a government which would
insure Interest tranquility; when brother was recon
ciled with brother, and father with son, the hand of ag.
greeeion is raised against them by a neighboring State,
who, with eerviles in their ranks, and aided by one or
the mightiest Powers of Christendom, is marching to in
vade their territory and make it once more the theatre
ot blood shad and misrule. Could he remain within his
cloistered cell and Bee such things without adding his
mile to the effort for his country's good? No. Far
from it. He must go forth like Peter the Hermit, of old,
to preach a crusade In favor of his suffering country.
And so he had come here to drink from the very foun
tains of liberty?to study our institutions, to
learn our laws, so that when he returns to
his own land he msv go there enlightened and refreshed,
to eommenoe the regeneration of his people.
He was bete in a diplomatic capacity, and It would not
become him to speak pub.loly of matters ol policy be
tween his government and oar own. He trusts 1 that
the great cause of humanity whieh he urged would be
in itself sufficient to shield him if he had departed from
any of the established usages of diplomacy in thus ad
dreering a public assembly; eat his heart wm full, and
ha must apeak, and he would say that It was his firm
conviction that the government of Nicaragua would
always plaee highest in the great brotherhood of nations
that tearless republic whioh was the first to extend to
the helping band of recognition. He would not
conceal from them that hie country needed atd; and he
could ice by this spontaneous manifestation or sympathy
by tha citizens of the greatest metropolis of this hemis
phere, that he had bu t to aak that aid for his bleeding coun
