Mr. Goodall?The Variete.?We are grati fied iu being authorized lo Mate that Mr. W. R. Goodall baa becoiue a joint partner with Mr. Ris ley in the Variete. Mr. Goodall, although a young man, has given such unmistakable evidence of the highest histrionic talent, that, wherever he has given his delineations, the highest encomiums of the |>resa have been showered upon him, and he has reaped golden laurels from the public. We congratulate Mr. Risley on having secured his valuable co-operation, and the theatrical public ot Washington of this valuable permanent acces sion to the corps of the Variete. We predict that the Variete will be the greatest attraction of Wash ington during the season. ' The unrivalled tragedienne, Miss Eli/a Logan, will appear as Evadne on to-morrow night?Mr. Goodall as Coloma. This thrilling tragedy has never been pwduced with so superior a cast of principal characters as in this instance. Miss lAigau has ??o acknowledged superior in this character; but of her talents we have no need lo apeak, for she is known and appreciated through out this country. Mr. Chandler (another acquisi tion to the Variete) will take the character of Vj. centio. We are gratified to learn that Miss Julia Daly has recovered from her late serious indispositiou, mid will add her attractions to the amusements of the evening. The Poor.?Several days ago, in mentioning that the city councils had appropriated three hun dred arid filly dollars for the relief of the poor, to be expended under the direction of the mayor, we remarked that, though the amount was small, it would to some extent relieve the pressing neces sities of the unfortunate suffering ones at this in clement season. We have seen, on almost every day, as we passed the City Hall, five or six per sons, women, awaiting a couference with the mayor; and we presume that at least a hundred persons have, during the last week, received a small portion of the fund benevolently set apart for their benefit. Although we believe that there is as little poverty here as in auy other city of the world of equal population?perhaps less?yet there is always a field sufficiently wide for the exercise of the most liberal christian charity, in the way of pecuniary assistance. An Old Mail, residing at the navy yard, was seen last Monday evening trudging to his home with a basket of provisions. He had been in ill health, and had excited the commiseration of his benevolent neighbors. At midnight he was seised with a congestive chill, but the kind attentions of physician were of no avail, and he died. The * next day an inquest was held over his body, and a verdict rendered in accordance with the facts. It was proposed by a gentleman in attendance that the jurors and the witnesses transfer their fees to the widow, and this was promptly and gen erously agreed to; and thus was contributed eighteen or twenty dollars. The poor lone Io nian; was additionally befriended, for some of the good people in that vicinity gave the body of her husband decent sepulture. The mere statement of these facts suggests a heart-warming com mentary. Thefts.?Larcenies still continue to be com mitted. Not long since, a lady, 011 retiring to her chamber in the day-time, found a well-dressed fe male there, who, directly she saw the former, apologized by saying she had by mistake entered the wrong house. She retired gracefully, but it was not until alter she had left the neighl>orhood that it was discovered she had stolen sundry fancy articles of female apparel. On Friday afternoon, a person of gentlemanly appearance entered a passage of a citizen in the Northern Liberties, and stole cloaks, coats, bon nets, and even school-books, which had been there temporarily deposited. Day, as well as night, is suitable for thieving purposes. ?> The City Railroad.?A member of the com inou council informed us, yesterday, that the pro jected railroad from the navy yard to Georgetown, over Pennsylvania avenue, meets with the ap proval of the House Committee for the District of Columbia, and thnt there is a probability of an act for this purpose being passed during the present session of Congress. We further learn that-the proposed road will cost about one hundred thous and dollars, and that the iron cau be laid and the road placed in working order within a period of three months. Police Report.?The following cases were re ported to the cliief of police during the last week, disturbance at the theatre, 1; vagrancy, 4; as saults and assaults and battery, 10; forestalling, 1; threats of violence, 11; selling liquor without li cense, I; selling goods without license, 2; disor derly conduct, 10; threats to burn a house, 1; stealing, 1; riot, G; cursing and swearing, 1; drunk and disorderly, 0; throwing stones, 1; ar son, 1; open |*rofanity, 1 ; negroes out after hours, 2; breach of the peace, 14; driviug wagon on the sidewalk, 1; Violating city ordinance, 1; ca. sa. 2?total S7.

The prospect, unless political change should in tervene to save the country of a black c?nimuniy and a black power, springing into being on^ir very borders, to be founded and cemented with the white blood of Cuba. . Perhaps I have extended these preliminary r marks beyond any present neceaity; at any rate, for this communication, I have given n 1 theispaCe I have to spare. Wc find orders published the 16th instant, from powers of two distinct roya orders, the first founded on the Queens order, dated 9th of November, forbidding tion and circulation in Cuba of Spanish news papers, printed in foreign countries, with exdep fion of the Cronica, under the cspec.al patronage of this government in New York, LI Correod^ Ultramar, El Eco Hupano Am'r'cantT ,T.h,f |?n ond predicated upon royal order of the 14Ih Sep timber, forbidding the same c'rculal.on in the island ol Cuba of the Courrur de* Etats- Unu. This paper, having been opposed to the govern ment of Louia Napoleon, has ^come < to the Spanish government, and heD"r,tVn^s diction. The circulation in the island of Cuba was far exceeding that of any othe. foreign ^"odu-al, aud although it has never taken any part in Cuban politics, in opposition to the present civil organi zation of our society, yet its lree and able d wcus sion ofthe theory aud working of the imperial svslem, fastened upou France by Napoleon, has a tendency too much to enlighten Cubans upon the subject of their own rights, aud induce reflection Sat miy impair that ".ever faithful" devotion to the ancient monarchy, and by accumulated kno ledge make their burdens too ponderous for lur *^ The*latest*'abu?e of power that wc ^arn of has been perpetrated some days since in the diatri t of " Nueva Bermtjall by the "Captain of partido, Espada, recently appointed to office by Pczuela, who, on the 9th instant, ordered the ar rest and punishment of several persons, who, at a ball the previous evening, had amusted themselves by playing cards, not being disposed to dance, or having no taste or practice in the amusement. They were stripped, tied to a bar and whipped wit a common field negro whip, without any form of investigation or trial. Their respectful remon strance will probably have the attention ?

Corrospoudenco of tho Charleston Courier. Havana, January 21, 1S54.?That something is seriously expeelcd here, there can be no doubt, as General Puvin has been appointed to the com mand ofthe army of the interior, which is to have its huad-quartcrsat Villa Clara. This appointment has been made privately. The audiencia has been in session for some days past, debating some serious measure. Sonic sup pose that it is in relation to our colored population; others that the subject of their consideration is the reduction of the Spanish doubloon, which at pro sent is current in this island at seventeen dollars, whilst in Spain its real value is sixteen dollars. Should it bo decided to reduce its value to sixteen dollars, the island would, in all probability, soon be drained of its precious metals, as at present the imports front Spain amount to six millions of dollars, whilst the exports to that country of the produce of this island amount in value to two millions. The four-million difference is remitted to the peninsula at present in bills upon London ; but, should the doubloons be reduced to sixteen dollars, then it would be nn object to make remit tances in gold. Since my last letter, an order prohibiting the introduction of tho Courrur 4's Etatx-U>iisyhna been published, in consequence, it is said, of Louis Napoleon having desired the Spanish government to stop its circulation in the dominions of Spain. It will be a severe loss to its proprietor, as the circulation in different parts of Cuba amounts to about four hundred. Ihe order runs a? follows: " In consideration of n despatch based upon a royal decree of the 14th September last, his excel lency the governor and captain general lias been !>leased to order that the introduction and circu ation ofthe journal entitled Le Courrur <U* Etatx Uiiis shall be prohibited in this island." From what 1 have written, it would not appear that the Spanish government has any idea of dis posingof the island, although the acts of its officers will probably cause its loss. The prohibition by the exorbitant rate of postage on newspapers, now established, is much felt by us foreign resi dents, who have been accustomed to read the news and observe the march of nationa. 1 now t>egin to have an idea of the capacity of our new governor. It appears to roe that he will prove himself unsteady, and show want of deci sion. He is quite a pet with the British consul general, whom he serves to the utmost of his power apparently. A person who lost his employ ment under government for informing the British consul of the landing of slaves duriiig Canodo's time, has just been reinstated, through a memo rial sent through the British functionary; and a number of persons in the island, lieloaging to an association in Ihe Brazil for the importation of negroes, have been ordered to be arrested, tried, and seat froui tho^slnud. Undoubtedly a person of great wisdom nnd ca pacity for governing might, with unlimited power, do much lor the preservation of this island, also for its prosperity; but I now begin to discover that Ihe late change will not be l>?ncficial to Spain, or render the island more tenable. Governors up to Ihe present have merely tilled their pockets, and conducted the gavcrnmenl in the same manner as their predecesaors ; bill now that the governor has almont unlimited power, and has no authority here to check him, aud it is expectcd of him that he hliati do something fof the |>re*crvalion of the island, lie will in all probability do too much. There will be a thousand plans for reform. Many changes will be made, but everything will tend to promote that very catastrophe, which is so much dreaded by Spain. This any ordinary mind can comprehend, which has any idea of the state of this island. The inhabitants are discontented, and nothing short of freedom would cause them to be comparatively contented. The changes that will be u}ado will not promote the prosperity of the island, nor make the position of the Cubans any better. The first art in regard to the tutautipadoSy although a just oue, ia thin ning to work its evils; the slave population is made discontented and aspires for freedom ; and the contemplated change in the currency will do much harm to the planter, should it be carried out. Added to all this, the want of knowledge and wis* doin in our rulers, and the working behind the scenes of the British government, will hasten us to great changes aud great evcuts ; and I expect for the future to have much to chronicle for your information. * There is no liberality in any of the changes of the Spauiurds. Safety to them appears to be in restriction. It is said that an order has lieen sent to Spain lor approval, which is to deny to the Cu bans the right of going abroad, except on the pain of not being allowed to return to the island, and no teachers are to be employed except Spaniards. By such measures and the prohibiting of news papers, it is expected the possession of the island will be secured. At a place called Bermeja, about thirty miles from Cardeuas, it was reported to the captain of partido, that gambling was goiugon at some place within his jurisdiction. With eight soldiers, he went out to detect apd secure them ; but, after spending the night in a fruitless search, he next morning early appeared at the railroad station of the place, and,after accusing several individuals of having been at play, had live stripped aud soundly llogged. The injured parties went to Cardeuas to make complaint to the governor, but at last ac counts the only satisfaction they had was the ad vice of the governor to withdruW their complaint. The British frigate Vestal has again come into our harbor front Jamaica, aud many other vessels of war are to follow to these shores. The British steamer has been at Santiago de Cuba, and the Daring, brig of war, at Cienfucgos, but it is to be feared that all their vigilance will not prevent the landing of slaves, if that be the errand. The weather, which has been cool, is now very warm, aud winter appears to have departed. This winter we have had comparatively few ainerican visitors. Archbishop Hughes 1 have heard nothing of since his arrival; therefore, I shall ex pect that he is very retired. I have just been informed that the audiencia lias been debating about several vital subjects in regard to thiss island. It is resolved to suppress all the junta boards, such as the junta fomenta, See.; also, to do away with the university, and to establish a consejo colonial or colonial coun cil or board. Another jueation, which is not yet settled, is the introduction of free blacks from Africa. The change in the value ol doubloons is not yet decided upon. The British consul and the government are in constant communication, and, as the consul says that he is a very line man, i. e. the governor, we may sup|tose that he does all in his |>ower to please the British government. The port of Mariel is to be closed on the 1st of April next. It is understood that next week an order will be published lowering the doubloons of Spain to sixteen dollars. Having nothing more of importance to commu nicate to you by this opportunity, I conclude this epistle, trusting it may afford you some points of interest upon which to reflect. Later from Texas* By the arrival of the Louisiana, we have received Galveston papers to the 13th. The Galveston Ntu\i has the following items: Major E. J. McLean, one of the filibusters on trinl in the federal court, wns acquitted on Wed nesday, and left immediately on his return to the llio Grande. The trial of the others is progressing. We learn that the steamer Dr. Smith is now on the Trinity bar. on her way down with probably the last freight recovered from the steamer Jack Hays. The Hays, we understand, is in a fair way to be raised. The entire loss cannot yet be ascertained. The steamer J. H. Bell arrived from the Brazos on Monday evening last, with 121 hogsheads of sugar, 150 barrels of molasses, 237 bales cotton, 7 bales moss, C bales wool, hides, etc. Hon. John Hemphill arrived in this city on Tues day. and. in conjunction with Judge Wheeler, open ed the supreme court on Wednesday. General Green, the clerk, and other officers of the court are present. Judge Lipscomb is expected in a few days. This term oi the court is expected to continue till near April. We have been told by a gentleman, who ought to know, that three kegs of gunpowder were found in a box of dry-goods on board of the Jack Hays, while her cargo was being taken out. lion. R. Cone, representative from Brazoria county, writes to the Democrat, of which he is editor, expressing dissatfaction at the manner in which the Pacific railroad bill was passed. 11a says that important measure wus passed through the House with pressing .haste, and without any discussion upon it. He says, with some amend ments, it would have been satisfactory to nearly every member; but that those who came to the legislature "to do nothing but to vote for that measure," were fearful it would be killed if any amendments or discussion were permitted. On the second rending, therefore, when all bills arc usunlly open for discussion, the previous question was moved and all debate prevented. He adds that " there is but one opinion out of the legisla ture in regard to the hasty proceedings on a measure that required mature deliberation, and in which we all feel so much interested." He says, rather significantly, " it now remains for us to see whether this measure is to ' make Texas' or to make those who makethe road." Fire.?A fire occurred In the convent, in this city, yesterday, about two o'clock. The fire com menced on the south gallery, then up the side of the house and into the ceiling, which made it very difficult to get ut; but by the perseverance of our fire companies it was soon entirely put out. The fire itself did little injury, but in the breaking and pulling down of porticos of the rooms there was considerable damage done. Almost everything in the house was thrown out, and considerable furniture, books, and other articles destroyed, which will make the loss considerable. Nothing but the most prompt and judicious efforts of the firemen could have saved the large and valuable buildingsof the convent, and scarcely one who first saw the smoke issuing from all parts of the roof expected anything else but that the whole would be consumed. The origin of the fire appears to be quite a mystery. William M. Varnelf has been unanimously elected mayor of Indianola for the ensuing year. The Gonzales Inoutrtr says that Mr. L. Nichols, who is chorged with killing Mr. Richard Parr on Peach creek, lias been held to bail in the sum of $5,000. Snow fell to the depth of four inches at Nacog doches on the 20th nit. The storin extended to a number of the neighboring counties. The >*$au Augustine HtraLl says that the new court-house at Milan is nearly completed, and the place is improving rapidly. Mrs. Dickinson, the sole survivor from the Ala mo massacre, passed through Bastrop on the 1st instant. A little daughter of Mr. James Smith, of Indi anola, was burned to death on the 7th inst., from her clothes taking tire while too near a stove. The Indianola Bulletin^ of the 11th inst., says: As an evidence of the prosperity of Indianola, we may mention the sale, in the lower part of the city, by one of our proprietors, within a week' or two past, of $3,000 worth of vacant lots, to new citizcns, for the purposes of building. At the same time, we notice new improvements in every seetion of the town. Lumber has been rather scarce recently, by which improvements have been retarded ; but we understand several new cargoes are now expected. Capture of Runaways.?We copy the follow ing from the Baltimore Sun of the 20tn instant: "The steamer Baltimore, which runs on the Po tomac river, came up from Richmond on Tuesday night to this port, fur the purpose of repair. During the trio, the captain discovered three slaves secreted away in the forecastle, who had managed to creep aboard and hide themselves without being discovered by any of the officers or crew of the Baltimore. The captain immediately called several men to his assistance, and tied them securely. Upon reaching port they were convey ed to the middle district wntch-house, and kept till morning whan thay were ciommitted.to jail. "The names of the negroes are Richard Bell, Thomas Brooks, and Willard Winfrie. They are the property of Mr. Newman Newby, residing in Chesterfield county, Va. ?'When the Ba It i more reached this port, the firm of Potec, Graham 5r McKinley committed them to jail a| the request of Capt. McCausland. Sub sequently ope of the firm went to Richmond and thence to the residence of the owner, walking 17 miles in the cold, being unable to obfaip any con veyance whatever. The circumstances attending the escape from home were of a desperate char acter, lire-arms having been used in order to escape detection. They will I* removed to-day, and, under the rljsrire of the above firm, will be taken to Richmond." ? ???"*. ? -jV. Captain tiuunleou'a Maaaacre*?The Dese ret Nmva has been furnished with the following statement from Lieutenant Beckwith, ou whom the command of the party devolved after the dis aster. The writer dates from? Great Saj-t Lake City, November 9,1653. The Central Pacific railroad surveying party en camped on the !Mth ult. on the eastern bank of the Sevier river, soma fifteen miles north of its ' entrance into the lake. On the following morning, Captain J. W. Gunnison, topographical engineers, with Mr. Win. Totter, an experiened, cautious, | and resolute citizen of Manti, as his guide, and accompanied by Mr. R~ H. Hern, topographic, Mr. J. Creutzfeld, botanist, John Bellows, (em ployed,) a corporal and six men, as an escort from Captain Morris's command of mounted rule-men, crossed the west bank of the river and followed down it for the purpose of making a reconnois sance of the Sevier lake, which would occupy two days, and rejoin the main body of the party on the following day, at some point on the river, near its canon. This portion of the escort uuder Captain Morris, and of the surveying party under Lieut. Beckwifh, having, nt Captain Gunnison's request, moved up the river towards the canon, immedi ately after Captain Gunnison's departure, where it was to malce a reconnoissance of an apparent passage to the west of the range of mountains through which the Sevier here passes to the west side of Utah lake, whence it was knowu to be practicable to this valley. It was also to exainiue the canon of the Sevier river. Each party made a long march, breaking their roads through deep sands and dense fields of sage, Captain Gunuison encamping about the middle of the afternoon, having travelled fourteen miles just at the head of the first lake. The other party, also, after a march I of fourteen miles, encamped on the river a few miles below the canon, so that these parties were twenty-eight miles apart that evening. The day had been cold and boisterou?, with occasional light falls of anow, but it was followed by a clear, cold, quiet night. Captain Gunnison's camp was secluded, while the wind was yet severe, in a horse-shoe bend of the river, under its second bank ; and was partly surrounded by willows, at nearly thirty yards distant?a sheltered nook from the storm, with inviting grass for their horses. The greatest vigilance of night< guards was maintained, each of the party iu turn performing that duty. At the break of day the whole camp was aroused, and at once engaged in the morning duties of camp, preparatory to ail early start; for the party was that day to reach its most distant point of exploration for this season; and between daybreak and sunrise the mud of them were en gaged in eatiug their breakfast, when from the fatal willow ahelters a numerous discharge of rifles and flight of arrows crossed that devoted camp in all directions, and the war-whoop of a large band of! savages rung out of that hitherto silent plain. At this fire one man only fell mortally wounded; and Captain Gunnison, stepping from his tent, raised his hands, and called to his murderers that he was their friend. But this call was of no avail; the deadly fire still continued. Upon the first discharge there was a general call to arms, and a few return shots were tired. The Indiana report one of their band killed and another wounded, but the surprise seems to have been complete, and the approach so close?twenty or thirty vards, under perfect shel ter?that it was impossible long to maintain the little open spot on which they had encamped. The most of the horses had stampeded at the first dis charge, ahd only three or four men succeeded in reaching them and mounting, the others seeking safety on foot, and fell in or near their fatal camp. The eorpornl of the escort succeded in escaping on his horse; and, hotly pursued, rode him at the top of his speed to the point where the party had separated. Here his horse failed, but the Indians had given over the chase, and he ran on foot the remainder of the distance,14 miles, to the other . camp of the party; and, at 11 o'clock and 30 min- | utes, came exhausted into camp barely able by a few broken sentences to communciate the fright lul intelligence. Thirty minutes subsequently, Capt. Morris and Lieut. Baker, accompanied by Mr. Potter, brother of the slain, led towards the fatal spot the escort of montitcd riflemen, all the men who could be armed and mounted, accompa nied by the surgeon, Dr. Schell?a band scarcely larger than that already slain, with the hope of I rendering aid to the survivors should any remain, ' of punishing the savage band, and of rendering the last duties of humanity to those who were known to have fallen. Another of his party had arrived on his horse, just as they were leaving, and returned with Capt. Morris's command ; and two others were met by him on the road?one near camp, his horse having fallen, throwing him under tome bushes, where he lay concealed until he could no longer hear the savage crew at the camp ; the Indians being at i times within a few feet of him, until noon, wnen | they moved otf, and be heard no more of them. Late in the afternoon Capt. Morris's party ar I rived on the ground, and found only a part of the | bodies of the slain?deathly silence surrounding them. Two Indians, however, were seen at a dis tance, and were pursued by Lieut Baker and Mr. Potter; but the near appronch of nicht enabled them effectually to escape. But, as all the bodies were not fonnd, hope yet lingered, and a bright fire was kindled at dnrk that it might be seen and approached by any who might have escaped ; and j the party, bridle in handbook post in the open plain and watched all night in vain for their friends or enemies to approach ; but neither appeared, and with the opening day the search was renewed. The sad fate of all was soon realized, and their bodies rccognised. One of tha arms of Capt. G. was cut off at the elbow, and both of those of Mr. Creutzfeldt. No Indians could be found ; and without food for themselves, and with broken down horses, this party turned its steps to meet the party under Lieut. Bcckwith, with the train, which wns only guarded by its teamsters partially armed, which had moved towards a common point for meeting with Morris's party, at the earliest moment for safety and future operations. These parties met the following evening, after dark, at Cedar springs. But few of the instruments of the surveying party were lost in this sanguinary mas sacre?a few animals, a number of arms, and considerable ammunition were Jail?a few of the surveys by Capt. Gunnison himself, for the Inst two weeks of his operations ; but it is hoped they mav be recovered through the exertions of his ex cellency Governor Young, who immediately dis patched Mr. Huntington to the scene of the disas ter to secure the co-operation of such friendly In dians as are known to bo in that neighborhood. An Incident not In the Bill.?A gentleman related to us yesterday an incident, which trans pired during the iast engagement of Mrs. Farren at the Richmond Theatre. During the perform ance of Lucretia Borgia, in the midst ofchat thrill ing scene where the woman entreats the duke to spare the life ofGenarro, when she had raised the dagger, as a last resort to prevent the duke from carrying out his design, and the attention of the house was enchained, that a pin might have been heard to drop, a veteran in the second tier, over come by the excitement of the scene, suddenly cried out: " St it I him!
