Delia, of Oct. 2d, copies from the Galveston News, of the previous Saturday, the following summary of news by the aieamship Nautilus : Tha steamship Nautilus, Copt Thomp son, arrived this evening from Brazos Santiago.. She brings several Mexican officers, as passengers for New Orleans, ond two convicts for our State Pen itentiary. Donna Lucinda, the distinguished wo man who was said to havo shared in the command of Metarnoras with Gen. Wool, and who was charged with un usual cruelly to one of her own sex not Ions since, is also on board, destined, wo presumo, to follow the fortunes of iho now exiled General. Matamorus still continued under the command of Castro, as loft by Gen Wool, but tho Revolutionists under Cap istran and Garcia, had approached to within o shoit distanco of the town. Castro had issued a bulletin, stating that ordcra had been receivod from the exist ing government for a cessation of hostil ities, and inviting an armistice. - The revolutionistis, according to a statement in the Flee, demanded a sur render of the city, together with all aims and munitions of war. To this the army in Motamoras objects, and contend for .1 - -!..:! ' .. ..".I. I mo privilege oi retiring wiiu arms uuu a certain amount of money. Thus mat ters stood, and Garcia was awaitine the arrival of artilery to enforce his demands. The inhabitants of Matamoras, fear ine tho citv would be sacked, were flock ing to tho Texas side of the Uio Grande. J he Mag slates, tne garrison ui iuoi amoras was thrown into a great con fusion on the retirement of Wool. Cas iro was in favor of the plan of Ayatla, hut nortion of the aoldiery, with Col. Savp.rieeo at their head, were for the plan of Vidsurri. Meanwhile the revo lutionists demanded an unconditional surrender. The Flag is severe upon the command er of Fort Brown, (Maj. Porter) for stationing half his garrison to protect Wool, when he should reach the lexan bank. Wool, however, did not avail himself of the protection prepared for him, but placed himself under chorge of a celebrated contrabandist, and was smuggled into Brownsville. An escort from Fort Brown and a neiu piece pro. tected him until he reached the Nautilus. The Flag has a report to the effect that San Luis Potosi had been captured by the revolutionary forces. Gen. Quit man killed, the army dispersed, and the city made to change its plan fiom that of Ayatla to Ibat ol Monterey. Tamnico is also said to have pro nounced for Vidauri and his plan. Gen. Casanova, the Commander of Tampico, had been driven from that city, and civil government suostiiuteu lor military rule. Second Asoensioa of Mr. Winchester. Fearful Apprehensions. Mn. Winchester made a ballon as cension from Norwalk on Tuesday last. He commenced inflating his balloon early in the morning, and at 2 P. M. stepped into the car and cut loose from earth. The balloon rose rapidly, and in five minutes passed into the cloud out of view. The wind was liuht, and at the lime he passed into the clouds his course was due east. He was seen passing over Berlin ville, an indication that tho balloon met with a north-east erly curtent, which would take Mr. W. over the Lake in the direction ol liulfaio. The Experiment says: At the time putting our paper to pross, (Friday evening,) three days have elaps ed since the ascension waa made, and as there have been no tidings receivod from Mr. Winchester, the most fearful apprehensions are rifo as to his fate. When he started, ha said he intended to go higher and further than nny Aronaul nau everuareu to iniuit i K"'"S' " i feared by some that when ho got into the "upper current," the intense cold ness which prevails in mat region soon rendered htm insensible and that he was frozen to death. Others think that he must have come down in the lake and been drowned. We are fearful that some accident has befallen him, still we cannot relinauish the hope that ha is safe, and ihat he will live to make many more ascensions. ' It will bo recollected that Mr. W. made his first ascension from Milan this fall and landed near Hudson. He rose to the height of over 20,000 feet, and was so cold at one time as to become sleepy and insensible, and that when he next observed the thermometer the mer cury indicated 5 deg, below zero. The bags or sand tn his balloon were lrrzen hard. Cleveland Jlearld, Oct. 6th. . Tuomas H. Urown, son of Mr. Joseph Brown of Bethany, in this coun ty, with his wife and infant child, died of the cholera on board sh ip on their way to California where they were go ing, we believe, to permanently settle. The deaths occurred about the middle of July. Mr. Brown had been previous ly to California, and waa on his return there with his family. -Wellsburg Her ald. ., , From tho New York Tribune. HTJBSIA HUMBLED. We need hardly call attention to the remarkable letter which we publish in another column, touching the conso quences to Russia and to Europe of the fall of Savastonol. Were we at liberty to name the author, he would at once be lecognized as a man of European, Knot universal, reputation;' but . we are only allowed lo say Ihat, though emphatically a Pro-Russian statesman, he is not now in the aervice of anv covernmenli and that, though his letter is dated at Urus tela, he is not in anv way connected with tha coterie who conduct tha Nord, the now Russian orean at that place. Aa tha iudement of a well -informed and L-loar-aoeins man. who holds the conviction and in our estimation it is well founded thut in the present strug gle tha cause of Russia is that of civili zation, ami her dofeat an injury to the progress of the world, the contents of this letter merit a carciui cuiiiurunu even from those who do not tolerate its oninions: while the most enthusiastic partisan of the Allies could not desire a more frank and sweeping admission of the scope of their victory than is here made, by one wno deplores n o a .o lamitv. It is true that a feeling of bit ir roirret polon and liieliler.s these in teresting statements, just as some other nnn nf ilm Inner. the allusions to kosnuth for examDlo. and marked by a tone of passion and a broadth of expres sion, which, though tnoy may irn excus ed by the fact that tho author did not ivritK for nublication. his friend, to whom we aro indebted for the letter, would not iillniv n to admit or modify In one respect we cannot altogether acrea with the view ol this letter ton rernine the continuance of the war. W urn told that it has but now com menced, and will bo waged henceforth upon a grander scale; but where it is to find its theater, we do not perceive. The intelligent publicist, whose letter we are commenting on, admits that me Rus sians will not ntiempt to regain iho Cri mea: certainly neither Austria nor Prus- ! will now be likely to join them against the Western alliance thus trans ferrinz the arena to the Rhine and to lta ly; and as for sending another and a more powerful army to resume the last combat on the lower Danube, that would be almost as difficult for the Russian Go vernment and as unprofitable as an at tack upon ihe Crimea. Under the-e circumstances, the war would soon be virtually concluded in Europe. Let the Allies maintain a sufficient force in the Crimea, with reserves at hand to strengthen the Turkish armv on th Danube up lo the necessaiy point; and let them occupy tho Baltic, the Black Sea and the Sea ol Azoff, as they have "county throughout the Slate appointed agents ,in. ih , I , to select the lands under the Act of September tlUliu u u n iHt Dvuevia whu "w w " . .

Secretary of the Interior, tha lalds It pro all Europe in arms on the. Niemen or Ihe Vistula would bave been starved out three months.' Germany and Prus sia would have suffered terribly; while France could and can, as well as fcng land, much more easily provide for her troops in Ihe Crimea by the aid of her fleets than she could in Poland or in any place in the interior of a poor country which the Russians would have laid waste for hundreds of miles aiouud. 1 am sure that even now, if the Russians could choose, ihey wouid rsthersee Pe lissier end his army in Poland than continue the struggle in the Crimea. This is what the Crimean expedition amounts to. I believe, I hope, that tha Russians will do the iinposbible. Bui to tell you the truth, my heart bleeds, for I sea that by thU event the progress of civilization has been stopped on two points. First, in the Weal, Louis Napoleon is fortified and the abjectness of (he French in creased in whose eyes, with very fuw exceptions, the lesst glare of military glory suffices for liberty, honor, morali ty, snd real national dignity; and then in the East, where in spite of all that is said to the contrary, Russia was an agent of civilization, and where Russia alone could and can fill that office. The Czars have received a fearful pun, ishment for having followej for more than twenty years psst a German and not a Russian policy; for meddling with European squabbles; for marching into Hungary in 1840 instead of taking Con' stantinople in 1848, as Russian interests demanded at a time when nobody could have opposed it. It is a terrible lesson by which (hey will profit. You are young, and you will live long enough, 1 am sura, to see Russia rise again. Her latent forces are too great to be broken by even this terrible blow. As for mo, 1 have nothing but the petty consolation of seeing; the great Kossuth floored. If even last year Russia or Nicholas had had the courage to make an appeal to the Sclaves of Southern Europe, where now would Austria ba with or without her allies? Correpomleiic ol ihe N Y.

A private Letter comtnunieaied for The Tri- w bane. ' Brus9Rls, Thursday, Sept. 13, 1855. My Dear : One act of the drama is through. The Russians have lost Sevastopol, and with it the Crimea; and certainly they will not attempt to retake them. 1 think that the real war will now commence. For all who have written on this war have lost sight of the fact that there has not been from the be ginning, either on the Danube or in the Crimea, a single pitched battle. All the fighting has been in attacking fortified or intrenched places; Oltonitza, Alma, In kermai, Silistria, Chernaya and Sevas topol, Now we shall see. I have al ways thought ami still think that in an open field the Russians can cope with their oncmios. Al any rale ihey can if they could do it at Irikerman and Cher naya, where they fought under all possi ble disadvantages, where they were hud dled together by the ground and could not deploy. On a level field the Rus sians maneuver as well and as quickly as any other troops, and the improve ments of modern tactics are more fa miliar to them than to the English. One thing is sure, they will fight well, better than they have fought so far. De feats and disasters do not injure their morale; believe me, that it is a peculiar ity of the Russian character. But, take it all in all, it is a terrible blow to Rus sia; not to her prestige but lo her pow er. Sevastopol and the Crimea contri buted far more to tha preponderance and the prospects ol Kussia than that little region which goes by the name of Po land. It was the most vulnerable point in the whole empire. Mutilate that and it will take a quarter of a century to heal the wound. In my opinion it is as bad as a bombardment of St. Petersburg; I would have preferred the latter. I al ways have maintained this against eve. rybody, and 1 still maintain thst the man who planned tha expedition to the Cri mea played a hazardous game but knew wheie to strike. The only consolation for me is to see that babbler, Kossuth, made an ass of, with his predictioas. Believe me and I feel the palpitations of Russia's heart the past and: present emperors as well as every Kuas an statesman and general, would have pre- lerreu a inousand times lo see all Eu rope no matter million of men in arras in Poland, on the Vistula, or the Niemen, to the Crimean exnaJitian. The Russians have certainly lost more in resources, horses, cattle, and men. in supporting their army in . the Crimea, than tney did in the campaign of 1812. Any man who knows the country knows this aa aurely as that the sun shines. And then a million of men in Poland fighting for her nationality, as Kossuth says, would have Starved, ruined.-de voured that nationality that is, Poland; whereas it is Russia which now anffara and bleeds from St. Poteraburg to the Black See. It would have been easier 28, IBM), and as a consideration for their ser vices contracted to give each agent twelve and a half cents per acre for all the lands they might select thus making it lo the interest of the agent to take all tne innus ne oouiu uuu within his county, under the set aforesaid. In accordance with this arrangement, the agenls for the State of Missouri selected the enormous amount of 463,909 01 acres. (See Report or Surveyor-General for Illinois and Missouri to Commissioner of the General Land Office, Oct. 31, 1851.) In the Palmyra land district alone there hss been nure than one hundred and fifty thousand acres token under the act or 1850, not more than one lortieth part of which is swanp land within the mean ing ot the Act of 1850.- Thus a fraud of a 'rememlous magnitude has been perpetrated upon the Government, which inits liberal pol icy and generosity, had donated all the swamp lands into the Slates in which said description of lands might lie. The Act, which was just and equitaulen its character, has been pros tituted by the agents appointed to carry it out. So great was the fraud in some of the coun ties, and it swells or diminishes in an, in pro portion to the possession or destitution of con' science on the agent employed, that the citi. zeus or this lanu district, several hundred in number, have made affidavits setting forth the fuel that the lands specified by them, and which were taken under the Acl of 1850, are and always were h'gb and dry, and fit for cul tivation at all seasons of the year, without sr. ti-Ocial drainage or embankment. These affi davits were filed with the Commissioner of the General Land Office Department, and many of the cases are undergoing the process of a legal investigation. The Department at Washington ha3 been fully apprised of the frond committed upon the Government since the Spring of 1853 from the contest gotten up by the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad Company, individuals, and the report of the Surveyor of Lands for the Slate of Illinois and Missouri. The Depart ment were so well satisfied of the extent and magnitude of the fraud that the issuing of pa tents to the State of Missouri for the lands se lected under the Acl of 1850 had been suspen. ded as to all the lands. The constituted au. thoritiea uf the Slate were equally in posses, sion of the faot that a fraud had been perpe. i trated nponthe Government in the selection of lands contemplated by the Acl of 18S0. . And so unesuy and solicitous were Ihey upon the subject, they exhausted all their powers of sophistry and cunning by correspondence to induce the Department to issue the patents lo these lands. But all their unworthy efforts proved unavailing. Finally the plaa was conceived of sending Governor Price in person to Washington to have a personal interview with the President, and induoe him, If possible, to direct the De partment to issue patents to the Slate lor the lands claimed under the Act of '60. Gov. Lrice visited the President, ana alter a negoti ation of several weeks, notwithstanding the information under the nose of the President, succeeded in getting him to order the Land- Office Department to commence usung the patents to these lands which had been selec ted fraudulently. And we are boldly told by Gov. Price on his return to Missouri, that ex tra clerks were to be called into requisition to expedite this villainous thing. "Mirabilt die tu!" President Pierce of the United States. sworn to protect and advance the interest of the Government, nas eaierea into a ease coali tion with Gov. Price of Missouri, and by his action sanctions an iniamous iraud upon the Government, knowingly. Let it be proclaim ed from Dan to Beersheoa, that President Pierce is "partictpo ensums" in swindling the General Government to aid one or two States of the Union. Mr. Pierce would have vetoed a hill vrantim the Dubiio domain to tha Stales of this Unioa for school purposes, because of contcientiout temple about its contututtonaltty. Yel he aids Missouri in stealing two hundred thousand scree tf land under tto act tj luau. But again, to develop more fully the magni tude of this enormous fraud, it is important that we notice tha decision or the commissioner or the General Land Office just pnor to this coali tion between Pieroe and Price. It will be re membered that many individuals had made ap. plication to enter the lanasseieeieu unaeriae Act of 1 850, and approved -by the Secretary or tne interior u swamp lanas, i nat the Wra missioner in writing to me agents or these par ties oa the ilhor May, 1866, said to them: "The party sling evidence as requuei by this Office and contesting tha States' olaui, will If successful therein be permitted lo enter the lands." ' The contestants under tbia view of the subject went en aad expended large sums of money in having the landa surveyed prepar atory to an investigaboa of the matter. Only four cases had been adjudicated by the Regis ter and Receiyer of the local Land Office for the Palmna Land District a 11 of which ware derided against the Stale's claim before the ven not lo ba swamp will have to be brought into market uy tniny oayr nonce xnereoi. But that the contestant would have the prefer ence at the ordina ry cash price where the lands hsd not I een approved, Thus making twe classes of swsmp land and comprehending the greater part in the first class. This was done Just prior to the foul combination between Pierce and Price. ... No reason ia given for the disuncuon oy tne Commisjioner between approved and unap. ' proved lands, except that in 183(1 a circular wu issued by the Genersi Lsnd Office Densrl-' ment to the local officers throughout the Uni ted States, instructing them to permit no land which bad been withdrawn from market Irom any cause whatever lo be entered.wtthoul being first restored to market by thirty aayr notice thereof. It is an incontrovertible fact that both classts of this located so-called swsmp land were equally withdrawn f'om markeii none ef the local land offices would permit one acre of it to be entered at any price. Yet the Commissioner says that the contestant will have orioritv in the one class and not in the other, because the Secretary of tha Interior nni api'roveu me one ana noi inc uuic.. Was there ever anything presented to the mind mire superlatively ridiculous? On tha ICthol May, hesays in writing about approved lands, that the contestant of tha Slates' ula,im, if successful, will be permitted to enter the land. On the 31st of July hesays the contes tant will have the preference right to the unap proved lands, if successful, but the approved iands will have to be restored to market by thirty days holies. This lsst decision wsa made only a few days before the infamous co alition between Pierce and Price to defraud tho Government, and amounts virtually to tn',:"t You need not trouble yourself about the fraud that has been committed, for if you areaucceta ful you wl 1 have no preference right over tho speculators. The contestants affirm (and call upon the Congress of the United States to do them jus tice) that if the selection of lands under the act of 1850 was fraudulent, said election wss null snd void ''ah initio," and no right of the 8tate ever attached thereto, for the reason that fraud vitiates every transaction, even the most solemn adjudications or a Court. That the approval by the Secretary of the Interior or the President of the United Slates eould not oper ate in any manner so ss to give validity to the selection. If the premises are conceded, and we think they will not be denied, the oldest legal applicant for the lands thus fraudulently selected under the Act of '60 would be entil'ed to enter them at the ordinary cash price, if proven not to be swamp within the meaning f the set, upon the equitable principle "qui prior tot in tempore potior ett injure." If the Gov. ernmcnt refuses to act upon this principle, ny Iraud can ever be detected, lor there wouiu oe no inducement prompting individusla-to set in the premises. ' . : . ' Having briefly called attention fothe fraud of Missouri, in selecting lands under the Act of '60, and, the infamous coalition between Pierce a id Price to cover the transaction, we invoke the power of Congress ta do justice to those in dividuals who have expended tneir money in ferreting out the fraud upon the Government. WM. H. TAYLOH. Kansas Election Yesterday. The election of the Free State men ol Kansas was held yesterday, and ex Governor Rekdkr was undoubtedly elected delegate lo Congress, where he will have a contest for his seat with Whitfif.i-b, tha pro-slavery man. The Mo. Republican, (pro-slavery) of Mon day, says : The election to be held by the Rev olutionists is fixed for next Tuesday. An effort will be made to give Reeder a much larger number of votea than have been given lo Gen. Whitfield, and this can readily be done, aa there will be no body to watch the ballot boxes. We incline to tha opinion, however, from what we hear, that the Lawrence and Topeka districts will have the honor of giving nearly all the votes which Gov. Reeder may receive. In some counties, it is very doubtful whether the polls will be opened at all, and certainly very few votes will be given. The Pro-Slavery men, satisfied that they are right and that they are sustain ed by ihe law, will interpose no obstacle to the farce which Governor Reeder and his party have elected to pley out, and if there should be any disturbance on Tuesday next, it will be because tho Abolitionists provoke it. faST The Tennessee House of Rep presentatives elected Gen. Null S. Brown (K. N.) Speaker, en the 40th ballot. The K. N.'a bave a majority of one in the House. The Louisville Journal says. r or forty-five bsllotines the vole stood ins, Gov, Brown and Gen. Donelson voting for some one else. It has been Ihe usual pratice lor the rival , candi dales to vote for each other, and if this rule had been observed in this Instance, Gov. Brown would have been elected upon the first ballot, but he knew that there was but one majority of tha Amer ican parly in the House, and if he bad given his vote for his opponent he would have been liable to the imputation of having sought to force Gen. Donelson to vote for him, and by one vote he would have bean elected. Such, how ever, was Ihe exquisite temper 01 n e mind that he scorned to resort to th't expedient, and gallently threw away his vote. -,- At last a resolution was adopted to ihe effect that, after a certain number of balloting, the candidate having the plurality of votes should be declared elected. When this resolution, passed. Brown declined the nomination, and tho House adjourned. At the next session Gen. Donelson also withdrew, and Aft Cloud and Gov. Brown were put in nomination. Tbey vote stood Cloud 85, Brown 80; and after four bolloliogs Governor Brown was declared elected, and took his seat aa speaker. , Election. .
