It appears that General Lopez, who la represented as a bosom friend o< Mas, sold out ths entire Imperial concern for forty-eight thousand dollars in hartf cash ; and the work of treachery was arranged so completely and oarried out so successfully that Maximilian and hia entire force, bag and baggage, were handed over to Eacobedo without a hostile shot being fired. Maxi milian, however, acted his part heroically. He sent his sword to Esoobedo, stipulating that he should not be subjected to insult, but awarded the consideration duo to a prisoner, and that If any one must be shot hs should be the first led to exeoution. Up to the latest advices no executions had taken place. We have files from the Bahamas dated at Nassau, N. P., June 1. On May 29 a heavy thander storm passed over Nassau, accompanied by a drenching rain. The mast of a sponge vessel lying in the harbor was struck by lightning and shivered. Provisions were in plentiful supply in the market. The fruit crop was very fine. President Johnson and suite left Raleigh, N. 0., yes terday morning, en rout* for Washington, and readied Petersburg, Va., at aeven o'clock last evening, when a large concourse of citizens greeted his arrival. The party remainod an hour at Petersburg, during which time the Proaident made a brief speech and was enter tainod at supper. In the evening thoy reached Rich mond, whore the band of the Elevonth regiment sere naded them. They will arrive in Washington to-day. Tho examination in itio case of the killing of L. Harris Hiscock by General Cole was continued in Albany yes terday. Dr. Armsby testified as to the cause of death, and at the termination of his evidence tho Assistant Distnct Attorney stated that the examination was closed on the part of the people with this witness. The case was then adjourned until this morning, when It is ex pected that Frank Hiscock, brother of deceased, will be examined. The prisoner's quarters in the jail have been changed, and he ia now more comfortabla The report of a recent fight with Indians near the North Platte river turns out to be a fabrication. A steam boiler attached to a portable engine near Craigville, on tbe Sunbury branch of the Erie Railroad, exploded yesterday morning, demolishing the building in which it was placed, and iniurtng Dr. Sears and Mr. McBirney so severely that their lives aro despaired of. Mr. Merritt was not so badly scalded as the others, and he will perhaps recover. Tho Southern Famine Relief Commission ia still vig orously carrying on its oeneflcial work. In addition to loading the United States storeship Purveyor, whioh left this port on Tuesday last, the commission have since ahipped eight thouaand bushels of corn to Charleston and Savannah for interior distribution. Yesterday the treasurer, Mr. James M. Brown, received from Claren don district, South Carolina, an appeal for relief from the beads of aixty-seven families, tbe name of each person boing given, representing two hundred and ninety-eight individual, some of whom are now suffer ing for broad. Violent hailstorms visited the Western Plains on last Sunday and Monday nights, oauoing great damage to the fruit and grain crops in that region. Who Shall Control Pbsm* T-4 CoitMt Amom the Nations. Tbe Mexican difficulty is scarcely off of our hands before we find looming up in the south ern horizon ono of those small clouda that in southern latitudes herald a violent storm ; this time in a simple nutshell is held, perhaps, one of the greatest problems that the Western world has to solve? neither more nor less than, Who shall possess the key to the wealth that borders the 1'aoiflc ocean ? We have bad the European commercial nation? figuring for territory in tbe New World for the past fifty years, until their efforts have been a perfect clog npon our pro gress. From Beresford's expedition, which resulted so unfavorably to British arms on the La Plata, up to the last bullying of the Paoific republics by Spain, inoluding the funereal in tervention in Mexico by the allies, we find that they will not keep their balds off the Western continent. Previous attempts to get a tempo rary hold of territory have, however, been of but little moment to us, in comparison to the one now making by England and France in New Granada. It is here they touch us in a very tender spot ; here they strike a great blow at our advancement; here they cripple onr resources, and bore they say to the Great Republic " Thus far thou shalt go, but no farther." Tbe contost has already commenced, and its first spark is kindled la New Granada, where, under the lead of Mosquera, who has declared himself Dictator, a revolution of con* siderable moment has broken out It is well known that for many years past Mosquera has been a noted liberal, full of progressive ideas, and, as such, led his party. When tbe question of the sale of the Panama railway came before the Congress, and was about to be decided in favor of tbe American company now holding it, Mosquera changed sides, up*et the liberal Con gress, declared in favor of the old retro grade priest party, and took military posses sion of the government. Tbe reason for all this is not unknown to us. English gold works as well in New Granada as it does in other parts of South America, when a point is to be gainod again.it tbe United States, or against any industry which may be forced into prominence by American energy; and here English gold has been very potent. Mosquera in dictatorial possession, and recog nized as the de facto government of the country, it will be much easier for those who really stirred up the revolution to get the Panama concession for tbe next fifty years than by hard fighting in an open contest against tho United States in the Congress of that country. We know too well the value of tbe Panama route to our commerce to yield gracefully to this intriguing game, which has floored us so often In other parts of Spanish America This time ths prize is of too much value, and it touches us too nearly in a vital point to yield tbe hold we have upon it Panama is a com mercial fortification, under whose guns lie the treasures of the East Indies and tbe Pacific on one side, and the demands of tbe Atlantic on ths other. Two lines of English steamers are already pouring a vast trade over the line from Australia and tbe Pacific coast of South America, tbe trade of the latter being enormous, and almost entirely absorbed by tbe foreign enterprise of British merchants, through the protection extended to tbem by their government We know, too, how highly prised this route would be in England for tbe quick and cbeap transit it would afford for their trade between their ports and the East ladies, It being a much safer navigation, more rapid and fkr broader in the national control it would give, than th? Su*s route, which France has forced through despite the opposi tion of hmr -sclent rival. Ws havo nq idea of allowing this tollgate to our oommerce to fall into foreign hands. The holders of it in such a case would lay such an embargo upon our trade as to make it practically valueless to us ; while in English hands, it would be the con trolling point for the greater part of South America, and we should almost be debarred from trade with these countries. All this is aside from our growing interests on the Pacific slope, which demand that we not only control, but possess, this commeroial centra of the world. Whatever rivalry may spring up between American commercial associations for the pos sesion of the transit is but little moment to us. We are looking at the question in a broad and national light; for it is one that in terests the whole people. Should Mosquera force an issue on the sale of the franchise and attempt to deliver the road inte English hands, we have little doubt but Panama would declare her independence; and, were this to take place, there is no force that New Granada possesses that can restore the State to its allegiance, were this action forced upon those who already exercise control there. British gold might furnish the sinews of war to Mosquera, but American energies might find an offset against that The Isthmus of Panama must be held by that nation whose national greatness it inont controls. We recognize that the British Islands are deeply interested ? that France also shares in the desire to gain a hold on every command ing point which can contribute to commercial power ; bnt we believe also that the United States hang, with greater interest upon the solution of tho problem than all the other nations combined, and, having that interest ho clearly evident to the mind of every citizen in the republic, wo boldly advocate that it is the policy of our government to say to Europe leave Panama to its natural owners; it is of moro moment to us than even the occupation of Mexico by a foreign lorce ; and if we could not tolerate foreign domination in Mexico, much less can we tolerate the yielding up of the koy to our own as well as the world's com merce. Nomination* Tor Presidency? Caucuses aid Conventions Versus the Popular Will. We are on the eve of a great change in that important part of our political machinery, the nomination of men for the Presidency. Can didates who are merely the results of party bargains? who owe thoir prominence to the greater or less strength of this or that clique in some set assemblage of huckstering politi cians ? who are the ftocidents of a political condition, and represent only the compromises and cheats of party strife? such men can no longor be accepted by tho country, as rallying points tor the expression of the popular pur pose on great questions, or as the deliberate selections of the national will for the highest place in the gift of the people. Washington was nominated for first President by the acclamation of the country ? the spon taneous expression of every part of the people; and that was a ease in which there could be no doubt who should be advanced to the first political dignity. But in subsequent elec tions, as no man was so definitely the repre sentative of the national ideas ? as differ ences on points of policy began to originate parties, the parties were put to choosing from their leaders the best type of themselves and ablest defender of thoir principles. Caucuses of Congressmen were tbe first machinery for thus settling a party choice ; and these cau cuses acted with comparative honesty; for the men they put in nomination ? all our early Presidents? were strictly typical of the great divisions of national thought, and were also men of high character? men who had achieved distinction for ability and worth. But (rom the caucuses this work of organic sing the people for elections fell into the hands of conventions as they exist at the present time. In these bodies originated tho corruption of tbe country that now appals the people. Demoralization, banning there, spread into all parts of our political system, until honor and honesty are no lonzer regarded as having any association with politics, and votes and offices are bought as openly and un blushingly, with as little sens.; of shame in the transaction as though they were fish in the market. Conventions betran by cheating the people they were chosen to act for? putting up second and third rate men, with whom they could make terms, rather than great leaders, who wonU} not stoop to tread the devious ways of corruption. Thus some of the great men of our history have been shut oat of tbe Presidency, and that high place has been filled by others absolutely unworthy such honor. How large a share th'n fact has had in causing our present troubles every man who will think can sea for himself. Finding how complete was their party control, these conven tions ran riot with their trading, and t:iU degraded the personnel of the conventions. They are now made up of m -n to whom the places are accorded as so much property. Every vote Is sold, if not for money, for office, and no politician dare so insult common sense as to pretend that these bodies represent any respectable portion of the people. Will the people, then, any longer consent to be disgraced bj tbe existence of these self-con stiiuled bodies of political buyers and sellers? Evidently not. Conventions are repudiated by tbe national intelligence. Such organisation of the people, good enough in its origin, is no longer necessary. Through the press, the tele graph and the railroad, communication is now so rapid and constant, the transmittal of ideas is so csay, that the people can come to an understanding without any such interme diary bodies. If a mass meeting of tbe respectable men of New York express their preference tor Grant, the fact will be known over the whole country the next day, and other cities will take action for or against, as their judgment may dictate. Choice by the mass of tbe people, not by representatives, must deter mine for the ftiture ths great question of nomi nations. Time ia ripe for it ; the press affords the means of intercommunication, and by this means the people must throw off tbe yoke of so-called leaders and cease to be tbe property, tbe political chattels, of fl>llf-con?tituied con ventions. Murder by Hlrsn. Fifteen dead bodies have already been taken out from the ruins of the sawmill destroyed by a boiler explosion In Philadelphia, and It U supposed that more remain. Probably all tbe answer that investigation will ever give to the friends of those slaughtered persons will be that the catastrophe was due to a detective guage. Tbe gauge registered one pound ot steam, and lite boiler burst t It la tune that we ceased to cover up the true character of these events by calling them " accidents." There is an absolutely criminal negligenoe somewhere. If the gauge was right throe lives were left to the chance of a boiler that perhaps was so burned out it would not have been marketable for old iron. If the boiler was good the gauge was worthless, and, at whichever point the trouble may prove to have been, there was an equal carelessness of human life. The Attempted Awnlntloo of the Kapsrtr ?f Ruab. The superiority of our special to the ordi nary press despatches, both in fulness and accuracy, most now be considered a settled question. The press despatch received late on the evening of Thursday informed us of the attempt to assassinate; but, according to it, the Emperor Napoleon, and not the Czar Nicholas, was the object aimed at. Napo leon, we know, was no stranger on the public drives and promenades in and around Paris. It was difficult to see why this particular occasion shonld have been taken advantage of in preference to th$ many others which weekly, almost dally, offer thorn* selves, if Napoleon bad been the party aimed at. It was known to us, on the other hand, that recent movements in Russian Poland had made the government of the Czar and the Czar himself specially unpopular with the Poles, and particularly with the Polish refugees who, with the disaffected from all parts of Europe, have made Paris, and more espacially Brussels, their home. It was known to us that the prospect of the Czar's visit to Paris had created not a little commotion in these red republican cen tres. It was also known to us that the pardon extended by the Czar, on the eve of his leaving St Petersburg, to all the Poles who took part in the late insurrection was, in reality, intended to conciliate the disaffected spirits in Paris and Brussels. The inference to our mind was irresistible that it was the Czar Alexander, and not the Emperor Napoleon, against whom the woulJ-be assassin's hand was raised. Our views have been confirmed It was Alexander that was aimed at, and it was the hand of a Pole that fired the shot which might certainly have proved the death of both Emperors, thus clothing Europe in mourning and involv ing we know not bow many and how serlow uit asters. ** ^ """ * What effect this will have on the Emperor 1 Alexander's plans, and how it may tell upon the congress of sovereigns generally, it is dif ficult to say. It is not certainly the most pleasing thought for a royal or imperial brain to indulge, that he is liable at any moment to fall by the skilled hand of the assassin. The untoward event is likely not only to cast a shadow of gloom over Paris, but to shorten the visits of the Emperor's illustrious friends. Chief J ?at lee Chase and Hta Explanations. Chief Josticc Chase has been making speeches to the Southern negroes and elaborate expla nations of the delay in opening the national courts. But he has made a Bad muddle of it alL Since the close of active hostilities and the capture of Jeff Davis, in 1865. there has not been more than a week or a month during which the Chief Justice might not have tried the arch rebel. When at length the trial camo on, why did not Chase preside over it? Whether his explanations will satisfy the negroes of the South we cannot tell. Certainly they will not satisfy the intelligent white people of the North. The latter looked upon the whole proceedings in the case of Davis as a farce impossible to be surpassed, until the ridiculousness of Chase's position was some what relieved by the sudden appearance of Gen it Smith and Horace Greeley on the scene. These two original instigators of the rebellion enacted a three oven more absurd and ridicu lous when they rushed "on to Richmond," embraced Jeff Davis and signed his bond. Herald Special Cable Despatches and Ike Blaaderlac of the Associated Press. The Hmuld yesterday, in a special cable despatch, announced that an attempt had been made upon the life of tin Emperor Alexander of Russia, in Paris, and that the would-be assassin was immediately arrested. The Asso ciated Press despatch, which came very soon alter, stated that the design of the man was to murder Louis Napoleon, and that after the discharge of the weapon the culprit made his escape and could not afterwards be found. Further accounts of the affair, which will be found in a special cable despatch to tbe Hkrat.d, published this morning, verifies our first announcement and informs us that tbe man who attempted the assassination of the Czar was a Polish mechanic named Beregouski. and that be was induced to take the life of the Emperor through personal hatred. We kaow tbat the general public never d.?ubt the correctness of our despatches, and we mention litis fact merely for the benefit of doubting i Loomises and the Associated Press agents. lacreass of Intemperance. Extremes in legislation are bad. They in crease the evils which they are intended to 'oppress. When forgery and arson were pun ished w ith death those crimes were of more frequent occurrence than they are at present Offenders counted upon the scruples of jurors for immunity. Sumptuary laws Lave just the same tendency. Wherever an unnecessary interference with the tastes or enjoyments of people is attempted it is sure to provoke ex cesses in the very habits which it is desired to correct This has been the effect of the present Excise law. There never was so much drunkenness observable as since it came into operation. Poople will always resist what they consider an injustice. The liquor law is unjust because it restricts the enjoyments of the poor, while it favors those of the rich; and the poor man will drink all the more from tbe desire to oppose it The authors of this measure have a great responsibility to answer for. They have made more drunkards by it than the liberty of free indulgence would ever have created. The Anstro-Ilung.irlan Coronntlen. The Emperor Francis Joseph Charles, 6t Austria, with the Empress Elizabeth AraGlie Eugenie, daughter of Maximilian Joseph. Duke of Bavaria, his wife, will be crowned King and Queen of Hungary to-day in the ancient city of Pesth.

At a meeting of the Council of the City of Petersburg, held this day, the uodermgned were appointed a committee to tender to yourrelf, members of the Cabinet and suite, on your return from North Carolina, the hospitalities ol this city.

At Reams' Station a small knot of persona had gathered to greet tbe President, and a few minutoa of bowing on tbe rear platform, while tbe rain beat fitfully in the faces of tbe party, ensued. Another jaunt of half an hour or thoroabouts, and the train bav.ng moored in front or Jarratt's Hotel, the party, wet, dozged and uncomfortable, alighted and were escorted Into the parlors by the Mayor and members of tho City Council of Petersburg, with a large number of eminent citizens After a few minutes of shaking bands in tbe parlor, and a partaking of refreshments, at the suggestion of Mayor Collier, tbe President permitted him self to be escorted to the balcony, and, amid the shouts of tbe assembled crowd, ?u presented by the Mayor to the people. In response to repeal jd calls tbe President bere made a brief address, in which be repealed in sub stance the remarks made at the reception in Raleigh, Mr. Johnwn said:? . ? Gsntlemkk?
