Subsequently the fort was captured by a detachment of Americans. - On the 15th, Col. Fay and Parker, and II- French, with sixty men, embarked on board the - Virgin, which also carried the passengers and specie from California, with the intention of capturing ban Carlos. The occupants of the Fort, however, fired upon the steamer with a cannon, and the expedition was abandoned, Col. b&v being unwilling to risk the lives of the passen gers. Order having been restored, the citizens of Grenada held a pubHc meeting and tendered General Walker the Presi dency of the Republic, which honor lit' declined in favor of General Cavral. Col. Wheeler, our Minister to Ceutral America, after much solicitation, procee ded to Rivas with a proposition of peace. Arriving at Rivas and learning that Gen eral Carrol was absent, Col. Wheeler at tempted to return, but was prevented by the Govenor, and detained two days, nor was he released until tlie town was threat ened with an attack. This breach of faith on part of Carrol's forces, led to a spicy correspondence between our Min ister and the General. . Ou the 22d Carrol surrendered." The treaty of peace was formed, aud thus Walker's victory became complete. Du ring the progress of these events, others of improtance were transpiring. On the 23d, the steamer couvcying the outward bound passengers by the Star of the West, was fired upon from the fort. A 32 pound ball struck theoat, killing a lady arid child and seriously injuring the machinery. Previous to this au attack was made upou the returning grvcrament forces, when four persons were killed and eight others wounded." Twenty-five passengers fled into the woods when the attack was made, had not been heard from when the steamer started. ' : ;; From tha St. Louis Eobnblican. Particulars of the late Rail Road Accident. ' The magnificent tarin of cars which left our city yesterday morning, on a ex cursion to Jefferson City, to celebrate the opening of the Pacific Railroad to that place, is now a mass ofrnins, and infinite ly worse than this, many of the noble hearts that participated in the pride of the occa sion, are now stilled in death. - The train,' consisting of fourteen cars left the depot on Seventh street, at 9 o'clock crowded with invited guests a half hour after the time advertised By the time it reached Hermann this delay was fully recovered," thus ' showing the good condition of the track. After leav ing Hermann, the train proceed with good speed, and without the least difficulty un til it reached the Gasconade, when one of the most disastrous accidents - occurred which has yet thrown this city into mour ning. ' ' The bridge across that stream gave way,' and ten of the cars were precipita ted a distance of - twenty-live or thirty feet. The3" locomotive," "from all appear ance, had reached the edge of the first pier, when the structure gave way, and in -falling, ' reversed its position entirely, the front turning to the east, and the wheels upwards. On . the locamotive at the time, where the President, Mr. II. E. Bridge, Mr. O'Sallivan, the Chief Engi neer of the road, and an additional num ber of employers. ' Mr. Bridge, it is supposed, is the only one saved of the individuals named. An hour after the disaster, voices from be neath the wreck of the locomotive, were heard asking for assistance, and when we left the scene of disaster, active efforts were making to relieve the sufferers. It is possible nay, it is to be hoped proba ble, that some of these unfortunates may have been rescued. . The road enters the bridge with a curve, and this kept the disaster from being more fatal as the cars were thereby diverted, nnd thus prevented from falling directly in a general melee. "Enough of injury, howev er, was accomplished. The baggage car, next the engine, went down, to use the expression of one who was in it, 'extreme ly easy,' . without causing, any serious casualty. The first and second, passen ger cars followed, and in these several were killed, and a great number more or less mangled In the third car, one or two were killed, only. This car, although in a dangerous position, and almost entirely demolished, was less fatal to life and Jimb. -In the fourth and fifth cars, a great many were fatally injured, and several instantly killed. The balance of the train followed swiftly on their fatal errand, and the loss of life, with contusions mote or less severe, was dreadful. ' Some of the- cars plunged on those be neath them with their ponderous wheels, and crushed or maimed the unfortunate persons below. Others hung, upon ' the cliff in a perpendicular position, and two or "three turned bottom upwards down the grade. . Only one the extreme rear car -maintained its position on the rail.' It has been suggested, that the devilish malice of some evil disposed persons may have been at work to weaken the super structure, and thus to expose to the haz ard of death the hundreds , of valuable lives in the cars. This much is certain, that Mr. O'Sullivan himself believed that the bridge was perfectly secure, or he never would have ventured that rich freijrht of life upon it. He had good reason to be lieve so, for, on the night previous, he had passed over the road from Osage river to St. Louis, with the locomotive, and he exnltingly said all was right. Mr. O'Sul livan had difficulties to encounter in the the completion' of the" work, of which no man not initiated has any conception; and it seemed to be a source of great gratifi cation to him. that he had overcome them all, and - that his triumph was at hand. That he had no , fears of the capacity, of the bridge to sustain the pressure upon it, is shown by the confidence with which he put himself in the post of danger, on the locomotive itself, a position in which he was willing to risk his own life, but for the wealth of worlds he could not have been induced to endanger the lives of those committed to his charge. The masonry of this bridge was the work of Saler, Schulenburg & Co., and is of the most substantial kind. It has stood every test yet applied to it, without damage in any shape whatever. The wooden superstructure trestle work was put up by Stoone, Booner fc Co., men "of great experience in bridge build ing in the West, and whose reputation ought to protect them from any imputa tion of design to turn over to the Com pany an imperfect or unfinished piece of work- We shall be slow to believe that, they have done so, except upon the plain est testimony. The Republican gives the following horrid picture of the scene of disaster: We observed one car, lyiur at a right angle with the bridge, the bottom nearly i forced out, and in the space thus made several dead bodies were observed by those on the out side. Another had been crushed by the ponderous wheels of one in the rear but whether imme diately behind it, it is impossible to say and in this a heavy loss of life occur red. The ceiling by the overriding car was crushed for half its length to the floor, and when the top was removed we coun ted five dead bodies, one with a heel res ting fully on the breast. As soon as the crash was over, a mo ment of painful silence ensued, and then issued, from the wreck around us, the groans of the wounded, the supplications of the imprisoned, the screams of the agonized, while here and there might be observed the upturned face of the dead, mangled and clotted with blood, or the half buried forms of others whose spirits had passed away forever. To add to the horror of the sceue, a storm of lightning, thunder aud rain arose of the severest des cription. The lightniug appeared to be of a blood-red, and the peals of thunder, quick as the flash resounded on the hills and though the valleys of the dreary for est with terrific grandeur. Miserable Excuses for Disappointing the People. The Marysville Tribune has ihe follow ing contemptible evasion of responsibility for not being able to fulfil the promises made to the people before the clectio 1. "The people appear to be looking to the coming Legislature to change the present mode of taxation. THIS CANNOT BE DONE. The Supreme Court has deci ded that the section of the tax law which allowed individuals to deduct their debts from their credits is unconstitutional, and the Constitution must be amended before a different mode from the present can be adopted; or this decision must be rever sed by the Supreme Court " If the Judges of the Supreme Bench elected by the Fusiouists agree upou this question with the editor of the Tribune, wo see jio impediment in the way of their carrying out the promises made on the stump 1 But will they do it ? .Never was a successful party in such a shameful pre dicament.

No allowance is made for the eight months that Gen. Scott com manded the eastern division of the army in Mexico. His pay in addition to that of Maj. General is $1,320 per year. Gen.
