KxTurwvtv Practical.?An honorable I'nited States senator neec.'ted in the Sc-j unte or. Monday that Paradise itself would :i,: be worth ten cents an norc if situated j in the Northwest without a railroad to ren der it accessible. The MrFarlmitS On*(v. The McFarland case, in New York, was continued on Saturday and Monday with no new or startling developments. The de fence sought to prove that lie was driven to insanity by the desertion of hie wife and her alliance with Richardson. Many wit nesses testified to a great many manifestu ;i of affliction, desperation, and wander ing intellect. Me extract the following : Jo.-enh T. Knowiee, notary public, testi fied: He had known Daniel McFarland j cc May, 1S67; he (witness) saw the pr sutier on tire 2olh of November, at hia . dice on Broadway, a little before .r? o'clock ; , :i that occasion the prisoner came in a great ?mucof excitement and phvenzy, and said : ??My God! what do you think? My wife got a divorce, and is living with Rich a Jsou; and I hih ruined. I'll go home ami kill myself." Witness said to his clerk that McFarland ought to be taken care of and sent to a lunatic asylum ; had seen the let tor produced?the intercepted one?it was shown him by McFarland when he (wit r;?-s) wms unpointed to take testimony in the hd'-'C is c<jr;?.;s case. [ fhe list of wit nesses in the ha'jtas corpus case was here road by Mr. Graham.] He (witness) considered the prisoner insane ; his ap pearance was that of a man bereft of rea ku; at times his conversation was wild: u:.J irrational, and always on the same j ,op:c ; he often threatened to kill himself ; j he always spoke of his wife and children ' affectionately, saying it would be death to him if he lost them; he considered Rich ardson the cause of all his troubles; he , fun said to witness that he could not ?deep, that his brain was on fire; witness examined Richardson on the 7th of June, 1 -7 ; conversed with him on that occasion ::i relation to Mrs. McFarland; Richard s' a said to him that Mrs. McFarland would never l:ve with her husband again ; that ho ! would marry her the moment he could pro- j cu:c a divorce ; he also stated Mrs. McFar land wns an intellectual woman, and he was determined to marry her ; witness re lated the conversation to McFarland, when the latter wept like a child and ap jeared completely distracted. James Taylor testified that he resided in Kieveuth street near Fourth avenue, and was a clerk in the employ of the last wit ness ; witness described the appearance of the prisoner when he came into his em ph-ver'soffice at noon on the 2;">tli. His evi-j .ii-iice dilTered in no material particulars from that given by Knowles. Witness al ways had an impression that McFarland was out of his mind, and on the 23th of No vember he xvas laboring under more than ? -dinary excitement, and in fact appeared t ? be quite distracted; on several occasions he saw McFarland crying when talking i.i mth's wrongs; heard him say that R:ch i.r i.- n had ruined him. McFarland often threatened to commit suicide ; he would say hit* home was broken up, and he had no de sire to live; witness on one occasion told Lira to " keep a stiff upper lip." [Laugh- j ter.] On cross-examination nothing mate- j rial was elicited. Srn against Erik i> y English Stock holders.?-Viic YorA-, April 11.?The Eng lish (stockholders represented by Ileutli & ?'o.. Raphael & Co., and Charles II. Hurt, of London, who own stock of ti.e E ie Railroad ? ouspany, filed a complaint to-day against t: c company in the circuit court, and against Gould, Kick, and Lane, in which they petition thf court to remove Gould, Fiek, and Lane, to: 1 n.ove for an injunction restraining them from issuing more stock, and also for the n; pointment of a receiver to wind up the Qtluire of the company. A. M. Keiley's Lecture.?Long befor e the hour announced, Fredericksburg Hull was crowded by a large concourse of } -rsons to liear t:>e lecture (delivered for the benefit of the Catholic church in Frede ricksburg] of this eloquent and distinguish ed gentleman, and rarely have we ever wit nessed a moro intelligent, attentive, and appreciative audience assembled. When the speaker arose, a pin could have been heard fall, such was the eagerness to catch the first words. And from that moment they were enchained and enraptured, and listened with the most intense interest throughout the delivery of the eloquent ad dress. The subject chosen, iS A Memorable -Night in the House of Commons," and the manner with which it was handled, could not fail to entertain. The address was chaste and elegant in style and diction, and the descriptive powers of the orator are un surpassed. Indeed, you could almost imagine Burke, Chatham, Pitt, Fox, Sheridan, Wil-j be: force, Lord North, and the condemned Warren Hastings, and other men of that eventful period, were in your presence. I he orator exceeded all expectations, and we have heard a universal expression of satisfaction and delight.?Fredericksburg Jkral'i of yesterday. Heath op a Desperado?Remarkable Statements op a Prisoner.?Gtoige Cook olios George Coleman (a colored man), who was sentenced to the county prison about eighteen months ago for five years for breaking into the house of James McAnall, in the borough of Columbia, died in that institution on Friday last. It will be recol lected that he attempted to make his escape, with some other prisoners, a few months ago, and came near shooting Pi isou-Kceper iSensenig. It seems from the statements made a few days before his death to a fel low-prisoner that his career has been an unexampled one for crime from early youth until his incarceration in our prison. When about fifteen years of age, while doing1 chores at a gate-keeper's neur the Relay House, between Washington and Balti more, together with another person, he shot and killed a man and a wo man. He was closely pursued, but dm bed a tree and hid himself in its branches, and there eluded hia pursuers. After midnight he started for New Jersey, where ho lived in caves made in the pine forests. lie said he also cut a banker's throat during the war, but lie did not state where. He also killed a huckster woman in Philadelphia, and obtained nine dollars in pennies and fifteen dollars in notes. And that he killed a man at thodrove-yard who had $1,500 upon his person. He said he knocked a judge down with a brick in Philadelphia and obtained $9,000 from him. In most of these crime3 he bad accom plices, but he refused to divulge their names. He assisted others in nume rous instances to blow open safes. He said that he was but twenty-nine years of age, and had been in jail thirty seven times, but was never sentenced to so long a term as the one ho was serving when he made the disclosures. He man aged to breuk out of jail frequently. He E-id that at the time he was arrested in Co lumbia it wai the only tixno he wai et?r ftugbt without 8o?t detdl/ ws&poa nbout lilfl pttMQfi* Those Itatwnenta are eitrtMr* dlnary, and may have been the mere wordii of a brageart. Sure it la, however, that, during his imprisonment he wan always re garded as a desperate character, and more ?hnti tlflual vigilance won exercised over him.

The Frenvh Reforms?The Srn'atus CoNsnLTrvc?Oi.wvier's Speech.?In the French Senate on the evening of the 28th ultimo M. Ollivier presented the following Senatus Consultum: Article 1. The Senate shares the legis l:\tive power with the Kmperor and the Le gislative Body, and possesses tho right of initiating laws. Nevertheless, oil bills for the taxation of the country must be first voted by the Legislative Body. Article 2. The number of senates may be raised to two-thirds of tho number of members of the Legislative Body, without including tho senators who hold their seats by right. The Emperor cannot nominate more than twenty senators annually. Article 3. Tho constituent power be longing to the Senate by virtue of article 31 and article 32 of the "Constitution of the 1-lth of January, 1852, censes to exist. Article 4. The stipulations annexed to the present Senatus Consultum, which are comprised in the plebiscite of the Mth and 21st of December, 1851, and of the 21st and 22d of November, 1852, or resulting therefrom, form the Constitution of tho Empire. Article 5. The Constitut'on can only be modified by the pcoplo on the proposition of the Emperor. Article 6. Paragraph 2 of article 25, nnd of articles 19, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 40, 41, 52, nnd 57, of the Con stitution, as well as all legislation contrary Jo the present Senatus Consultum, are ab rogated without prejudice to the abrogation resulting from the plebisciturn of the 21st ind 22d of November, 1852, and the Sena :us Consultums promulgated, notably that )f the Sth of September, 1869. Article 7. Those portions of the Coneti :ution of the 14th of January, 1852, and )f the Senatus Consultums since promul gated which are not abrogated formally or by implication, or are not reproduced in the appendix to article 4, will have forco of law. M. Ollivier, in introducing this Senatus Consultum, pointed out that the Empire had constantly sought to conciliate the ne cessities of the Conservative interest with the requirements of reform. The consti tutional government of the Empire, based upon universal suffrage, would have the advantage over other constitutional govern ments of giving an equal share in the ad ministration of the country to the demo cracy and aristocracy. M. Ollivier ap pealed to the patriotism of the senators to aid tho sovereign in giving liberty to France, and said : "If the Senate loses a great part of its constituent power, on the other hand it acquires by its new legisla tive attributes a field of activity better calculated to utilize the knowledge and ex perience of its members." The Minister of Justice concluded his speech by eulogiz ing the Emperor, from whom proceeded the present great liberal initiative. The San Domingo Job. A "Washington correspondent of the New York Times has the following touch at some of the schemes for swindling in the San Domingo job. There aie many bcB'des these. If the Government would boldly take what it wanted in the West Indies, and treat ull claimants equitably, it would cut short the diplomacy of the sharpers who are working on the ignorant Dominicans and attempting to humbug our own Govern ment at the same time : " It is known here that the agents of the llaitiuont loan, becoming aware of the im mediate and pressing needs of the Baez Government lor money, are endeavoring to induce it to accept so much as Bucz may need to carry him along until the fate of the treaty is decided, knowing that if Baez accepts any po-tion of the loan now he obligates himself lor the whole. Spofford, Tileston k Co., of New York, the agents of the London takers of the loan, have, there fore, tendered Baez ?'2f>.000 in gold on account. These gentlemen so well un derstand the commercial value of the island that they are very willing to risk their money and that of their principals, knowing that in case of annexation they arc safe, and in cose of its failure that they are secured by the custom-house mono polies which they will obtain under the terms of the loan at Santo Domingo city and Porto Plata. The attorneys for the American claimants of the island of Alta Vela are threatening to oppose the ratification of the treaty uuless their claim can in eoiue man ner uc guaranteed. This is a very trans parent proceeding, when it is considered that annexation virtually secures their claim beyond all doubt, if it is a just one, while the failure of annexation alienates the sympathy and friendly aid of both Governments. Senators who arc putting any faith in the representations of these persons will not fail to see that their posi tion is at least illogical, not to say equivo cal." An Insane Woman linrns Her Child. Correspondence of the Cincinnati Gazette. New Castle, Ikd., April 7.?Our town was this morning the scene of a most heart rending homicide. The wife of Mr. Wil liam Redding has been insane for some two years, with occasional lucid intervals. She has at numerous times attempted to take her own life, well nigh succeeding once by hanging, and once by cutting her throat. But never until this morning has she made any serious attempt to take the life of any one else, although her husband j had lived in continued fearforthe safety of j his three children. Seldom haB he ven- j tured to leave thera for any time in her | care. She has seemed rational enough j now for some time, has been attending to the duties of her house, and it was hoped she was in a fair way to entirely recover. This morning about 7 o'clock, while her husband was working just outside the house, at the yard-fence, she was dressing the children. The baby, nine months old, was in her lap. She spoke to the eldest boy (some ten years old), and asked him, "What if I should burn the baby f" The boy auswered that he would go and tell pa if Bhe did, and imme diately started out where his father was. No sooner was she left alone than she de liberately put the baby into the stove and shut the stove-door, and then went out and told her husband what she had done. He instantly rushed in and took it out. Its face and arms and all the front part of its body were burned into a criBp. Death came 1 to tiio relief of the 'little sufferer at 10 o'clock, after three hours of tho most in tense suffering. The mother seems frantic with grief for a moment, and then relapses into an utter want of realization of the sit uation. _ Vinnie Ream is making something of a sensation in Roman art circles, as she did in Paris. For bo petite a body, her achieve ments are astonishing to the multitude. She has just completed medallion like nesses of Listz ana Archbishop Spalding, besides two ideal figures. We regret to have to announce the death on Saturday night of Mr. Gastano Lanza, Sr., from a sudden attack of pneumonia. Mr. Lanza came to Charlottesville Beveral years before the war, and was assistant professor of modern languages until the war. No man in the community was more ! thoroughly respected than Mr. Lanza both for hiu sterling qualities as a man and the high attainments which he was known to possess.?QharloUesvilU Chronica of yet* telegraphic news. ? t New York Utoek ftfid Money Market.

New Mexico. Tho Ilouse Committee of Territories has acrrccd to report a bill for tho admission of New Mexico as a State. The Dnty ou Cotton Mnclilnery. The agreement by the Ways and Means Committee to take off tho duty on cotton machinery has brought about strong opposi tion from the representatives of some twenty-eight manufacturers of cotton and card machinery of Massachusetts and other New England States, who protest against Buch action. They represent that unless protection ib afforded thom they cannot successfully carry on their business. Tho committee promise to consider the matter, but it is not probable they will reverse their former action. Reparation by the Spanish Authori ties for Indignities to the United States. Secretary Fish received lcttera to-day from Minister Sickles, at Madrid, sta ting that the Spanish authorities had or dered the instant relief of the steamer Lloyd ABpinwall, seized by one of the Spanish war vessels on the high seas 6ome time since on suspicion of carrying arms and ammunition to the rebels in Cuba. The Spanish authorities have or dered that damages be paid, and that satisfaction be given in relation to the seizure, which they totally disapprove. The case of the shooting of Potolonda, a naturalized Cuban, is also apologized for, and orders sent to Cuba to pay his family damages and make reparation. Secretary Fish communicated these facts to the President in Cabinet meeting to-day. Leave of Absence to Colored Em ployees.

Bailey had from time to tirao as much as 8100,000 worth of stamps in his possession. Governor Senior on Tennessee Affairs. Governor Senter was again to-day before the Reconst suction Committee, and his tes timony was substantially a repetition of that given on Saturday last, which was to the effect that hie message to the Legisla ture of Tenucssee for power to suppress alleged outrages was based upon instances of some mouths past, und that the Legisla ture adjourned without doing anything; that he had been unable to detect the per petrators of these outrages; that the better class of citizens deprecated these outrages, some of which could not be traced to politi cal causes, and were such as occur in com munities in other States. The Teeh Forin-lJoolc. The form-book or coupon-book for distil ler b and -wholesale liquor dealers copy righted by one Tech, of New York, about which such a hubbub has been created in Congress, will be thrown open to the gene ral use of the public, so far as the Internal Revenue Bureau is concerned,without refer ence to the copyright. By advice of the Com mittee of Ways and Means, and upon his own judgment, Commissioner Delano will direct in a few days that this form of book shall be used, aud it may be procured from any Bourec the parties required to use it may see fit. Chief Jastico Chase Favors General Amnesty. In a conversation between Chief Justice Chase and some other gentlemen, a few days ago, the Chief Justice stated that if he had had it in his power he would have long since granted geueral amnesty for all political offences, and that he is now in favor of placing so-called unconverted rebels upon an equality with all other citizens.

Senator Tipton Down on the Bullock Faction. In the discussion upon the Georgia bill this afternoon, Senator Tipton advocated the adoption of the Bingham amendment, and said he did not believe the stories ot rebel outrages in that State, and that if he were a ciiizon of Georgia he would do all in his power to put down the Bullcck scala wags that are endeavoring to perpetuate themselves in power. This waB a perfect astonishcr to the subservient Radicals of tbe Senate, especially to his vain colleague, Thayer, who, like the rest of the small-fry politicians of tbe Senate, supports the Bul lock parfy. A Picture of Merlco by General Rosecrans. General Rosecrans was again before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and made a lengthy argument in support of his bill for the promotion of commerce and amity between the people of the United States and of Mexico by encour aging the citizens of the United States to aid Mexico in the development of her re sources. Ho proceeded to argue that Mexico was a land upon whioh nature has lavished her bounty, covering its surface with all that can minister to human want or luxury, and filling its mountains with gold, silver, tin, copper, and other mineral treasures; that she has no large navigable river to touch her interior table-lands and sup* pi/ 9Utlett fa fair actual and production*; tint rtflv&jS Ut alone fetch theae treasures,?bouses of W6ftlth?and, bearing their contents to the oce&ris, pour them into the lap of general commerce' that until these are made no population nor race would or can develop the dormant re sources of the country. He shows tbo in ability of the Mexican people themselves to develop these resources, whilst they are in favor of railways and industrial im migration ; that be has the cordial as surances of Juarez and the leading men of Mexico of concurrence in his viewB and cooperation With him in his plans, which requires no expenditure byvour Govern ment, involves no complications, but merely requires the authorization of an organized effort of American citizens to aid in the work. Wallace. Associated Press telegrams. c CongreMlonaL'" Washington', April 12.?House.?After a stubborn resistance on the part of Mr. Sclienck, the House postponed the tariff and took up the contested election case of Hunt vs. Sheldon, from Louisiana. A spi rited debate took place on it. The question occupied the entire day. A vote will be taken to-morrow. Three thousand dollars were appropriated to defray the expenses of the committee ap pointed to investigate General Howard's al leged Freedinen's Bureau corruption. Mr. StevenBon made a minority report, supported by four members of the Election Committee, in favor of seating Joseph Segar qb congressman at large from Virginia. Adjourned. Senate.?The bill restoring the Washing ton relics to Mrs. Custis Lee, which passed the House, was referred to the Senate Mili tary Committee. The resolution for a joint Indian com tnittee was taken up. A motion for its in definite postponement was defeated. The Georgia bill was taken up by a vote of 30 to 29, and discussed by Mr. Tipton for Bingham's admendraeut and, by Mr. Howe against the admission of the State and in favor of a provisional government. Mr. Howe argued that the State Constitu tion allowed the Legislature to perpetuate itself indefinitely; that the State Govern ment was not republican in form ; and that when two parties in a State hated each other more than they hated injustice and outrage neither should bo allowed ascend ancy. Without taking a vote the Senate ad journed. The Georgia bill will come up again to morrow. Government Survey of the James River and Kanawha Canal Exten sion. Wamiingtcw, April 14.?The Senate Committee of Commerce has agreed to re port in favor of directing the Secretary of War to survey the route for the extension of the James River and Kanawha canal to the waters of the Ohio. Yarions Items. Washington, April 12.?Able lawyers have been retained by either side in the Howard Freedmen's Bureau corruption case. The Reconstruction Committee heard Governor Senter, of Tennessee, finally this morning. His evidence and statements Batiefy neither party. He suggests nothing but that Federal soldiers be placed under his control, and he to maintain peace with them. The President has signed the bill for the removal of Shober's political disabilities, and he will now be seated us a member from North Carolina. Secretary Bout well has returned to the city. The revenue receipts to-day were $185, 000; for the month to date, $0,000,000. General Pope will probably succeed the late General Thomas in command of the Pacific Division. The Senate caucused regarding Mr. Gor ham this morning, but without action. A dispatch received by the Spanish Min ister here to-day says that the Spanish Bank at Havana has loaned the Government $5,000,000 without interest. The President has nominated S. T. Day, of Florida, consul at Picton; Edward Johnson, of Arkansas, consul at Ghent; and Alar.son B. Long, United States attor ney for Louisiana. The Treaeury disbursements for the month to date were smaller than at any corresponding period of the last ten years. The Georgia question drags slowly along, and the issue scorns as remote as ever! Only Blodgett, of the various Georgia dele gations, remains here watching the progress of events. The best opinion is that the pre sent executive and legislative officials will go out at the expiration of the terms for which they were elected, and that the election for their successors will be conducted under military auspices. It seems certain that whatever result may be reached, the prevent officials will not be allowed to hold over ex cept by a vote of the people, or by execu tive appointment. j e The case of Hunt vs. Sheldon, from Lou isiana, was elaborately argued in the House to-day to empty benches. The issue iB fore gone. Sheldon will retain his seat by nearly a partisan vote. The members of Congress from tbo Gulf States met to-night to consider the Southern Pacific railroad. They agreed to support a charter making the eastern terminus at Marshall, Texas, with the right of other roads to connect west of Marshall; the connecting roads to carry freight and pas sengers under arrangements mutually bene ficial ; the gauge of the trunk and con necting lines to bo five feet. The Gulf State delegations will unanimously support the company most likely to build the road from Marshall to San Diego. A committee [ was appointed, composed of Messrs.
