The National Hotel Disease, about which the papt-r* were tilled a year ago, is yet a topic of discussion. The New Yoik Journal of Commerce says : ?'We conversed, on Tuesday, with a very intelligent gentleman id* this city, one of the ofTi< era of the American Telegraph Company, who is among the sufferers by the my sit rious disease which broke out in Washington city just prior to lite last presidential inauguration. From a condi tion of great bodily vigor and a corpulen cy he has gradually wasted until reduced to a feeble invalid. During the many weary days of confinement allotted to him he has w atched the progress of the malady til! the !i?i of deceased victims has reached twenty-seven, including many eminent names; and be calculates that out of a tot'd of three hundred sufferers at least one hall aie in a state of decrepitude no better than bis own. In spite of all the theories w hich have been advanced by medical men & sanitary committees, he ad heres to the belief that the fatal "epidem ic," as it was called, was occasioned by nothing ebe than a malignant mineral poi son; and the same opinions is held by other sufferers with whom be has con versed. Up to a reront period be was treated by a phy-ician of this neighborhood as for a malarious or atmospheric poison, with no perceptible bnu lit; but upon the physi cian and treatment being changed, substi tuting an antidote to arsenic, favorable symptoms became at once apparent, and he is able to leave bis apartment."

On Sunday week, near Harper's Ferry, he had three or four tunes sealed , himself upon the track with a suicidal in tent, but was removed upon the arrival ol trains, until conductor Dukehart took him up and brought him to Littleton, where he was handed over to his friends. Some time during Wednesday night he escaped (rum ihe house of his lathi r-in-l n\and on Tliui*dav morning the in muled remains were found besnewinj the track in t!>e fennel.

The Washington correspondent of the | New Orleans Picayune, in a recent letter, gives the annexed interesting incident : ; Among the naval officers dropped by the Naval Retiring Board, was captain Smoot, who had received the thanks of Congress and been voted a sword by the State of Maryland for his gallant services in the war of 1812. The sentenoe of the l Board fell upon him with crushing weight, and the mortification which it occasioned ; him, is believed to have hastened his death, which occurred sotne months since. His widow, feeling the responsibility res ting upon her to vindicate the fame of her deceased husband, when the tirst month of grief had passed, set about rearing the noblest monument to his memory which a Roman matron could hate desired. Taking the Maryland sword, she procee ded with it to Annapolis, during the recent j session of the Legislature. Here she pre sented her memorial setting forth the ac- ; tion of the Naval Board in her husband's case, and suggesting that if he had been justly condemned by that secret tribunal, ihe gift of Maryland had been unworthily bestowed, ami ought to he no longer re tained by his family. Accordingly she begged leave to return the sword to the State, with the request that if the Legisla ture believed her husband had been injured by the inquisition, they would make some disposition of the token of confidence and regard that should stand ns a lebuke of his persecutois, and vindicate his fair fame The Legislature at once accepted the return of the sword, and passed a vote al most unanimously bestowing it upon the gallant captain's son, a manly lad of some fourteen summers. Mrs. Smoot's con duct makes her quite a heroine; and the success of her plan for preserving the laurel upon her husband's tomb, has filled a cup of consolation for his loss, if we may judge by the joy which animates her counti nance a* she points to the noble ev idence of her husband's worth. Fi nm the Utah A liny. New York, April 5. ? Advices from tiie Utah army to the 10th of February have been received. The health of the army was good, ahd the march upon Salt Lake would probably commence on the 1 Oth of May. The grass was far advanced, and seve ral bundled recruits had arrived at fort Leavenworth previous to the "TtJth of March. Preparations were making at the latter place for the early forwarding of| reinforcements. Co!. Hoffman's com mand had been met 400 miles west of Fort Leavenworth. Col. Johnson's supplies would not last longer than May, but there were at Fort Scott four months' supplies for 3,000 men, and a train would be dispatched from that point to Fort Scott immediately. St. Louis, April 5. -Dates to the first of March state that Col. Johnson had an ef fective force of 1,800 men, and 1,000 an imals, in good condition, with a large vol unteer foice, and the general impression was that he would not wait reinforcements before making an attack. There is nothing know n of the Mormon preparations. Alwivbs. ?
