FircnBcna, April 14, 1854. MHBns.EBm.ra: Agreeably " will sav s word of the climate, scenery, &, ol the SSd nw erritories of Nebraska ,and Kansas. ThiStlract of country, extending as it does, as S a, U.e south borders of Kentucky and Yirmnja, and as for north as the northern portion of the Canada, must, of course, have a variety of climates; but it 'is of that portion lying in the latitude of Ohio .and southern New York, I propose to speak. In this latitude the climate is agreeably mild and liealthy, not subject to extremes of either heat or nolil. I" summer, although the thermometer may sdaiid at eighty or a hundred degrees, the heat is not oppressive, owing to a gentle breeze that rises in the early part of the day, and continues until late in the afternoon. The breeze is nearly as regular in its appearance as are the trade winds on the Pacific coast, and is as pure and healthful; hence whatever damp, fogs, or noxious gases of anykind, may have beeu generated during the nights, they we early displaced by the wholesome air from the distant snow-capped mountains. Itis, doubtless; owing to this free" circulation of the air that the cholera which prove? so fatal in the heavy wooded bottoms of the ilississippi and Missouri rivers, whenever that disease visits that country .seldom or never seeks its victims in the open prai ries of this territory. Such was the case in 1S49, and also in 1S33, according to the testimony of a missionary at Council Bluffs, in those years. The climate of Nebraaica varies, not only in the different latitudes, but also in different altitudes. While on its eastern bordei'3 no frost can be found, and the fjrass is from three to nine inches in height the first of May, on its western, near the "South Pass" of of tin: Kocky -Mountains, ice, in abundance may be found in the middle of June, and on the mountain top are perpetual snows. The sceuerv ol this territory is as varied as the rliinate. 'Hie monotonous level of the river bot toms; tho beautiful rolling mairies, the picturesque bluffs, of the I'latte, tho grand and stately piles of fjranite on the Sweet Water, ana Uie sublime heigit3 of the Rocky Mountains, afford sufficient variety to feast ft lover of nature a lifetime. There is probably no country of the sameextent thatcon tains so much variety and beauty of scenery as this; neither-is there any country tliat lias .scenery like it, in many of its characteristics. The scenery il -the I'latte, in the vicinity of Scott's Bluffs, stands unrivalled and unapproached, even, in the pictjirewiie. It is not only sni generis unlike every other in character, bnt surpassingly beautiful. Rev. Samuel Parker, in describing the bluffs on thohatte, says: '-Many of them are very high, with jxTpeudicular sides and in almost every ima ginable form. Some appeared like Btrong fortifica tions with high citadels; some like stately edifices, with lolly towers; I had never before seen any thin" like them of clay formation. And what adds to their beauty is, that the clay of which they are composed is nearly white. Such is the smooth ness, and regularity, and whiteness of the perpen dicu'ar sides and offsets, and such the regularity of their straight and curved lines, that one can hardly believe- that they are not the work of art" This is but a very imperfect outline of the back ground uf the picture that extends for miles, while lie Platte, with its wide and rich bottom, consti tutes the foreground. -But, though the lovers of Natuie and the beautiful, whilo Time shall last, will bow in adoration at this shrine, and the curious and f.L-hioiiable shall make it their resort, yet few of the emigrants of this generation will make it their home. The scenery that most attracts such men is found nearer, in the eastern portion of this territory, where the deep virgin soil of the rolling prairie invites the plough and spade. To give some ide.i of this scenery, I will quote my impressions as ti.ey were penciled while traveling through the l:ilun territory, south of the Kansas river. .11 ,iy 1 1 ih. Our cruise, to day, has been over the lolling prairie, and we passed along without diffi culty. The prairie eems to be an endless succes sion of rolls, with a smooth, queer surface, dotted nil over with most beautiful llu wers. The soil is of the mo-it rich and fertile character, with no waste land. The feelings that come over a person as he first views this immense ocean of land are indesrib able. As far as the eye can reach he sees nothing but a beautiful green carpet, save here and there perhaps a cluster cf trees; he hears nothing but the leathered songsters of the air, and he feels nothing but a solemn awe in view of this infinite display of creative power. Kith. Turned out this morning a 4 o'clock to watch the cattle. Went upon a high roll of land where I had an extensive and most enchanting view of this, seemingly, boundless and ever varying prairie. The sun is rising out of this sea of laud m the coat, aline of timber skirts Cedar Creek to the N. IS., also Spoon Creek to the N. W., while still further on, in the same direction, is seen a thick fog. marking the course of the Kansas river. All is still save the grazing of the cattle, and the concert of birds, which is composed of a great variety of songsters. The cooing of the prairie hens, heard in every direction, constitutes the bass; the loud cawing of the crows, the tenor; the fine sweet voices of the ground and small birds, the treble; and a noise as of distant wild geese, the alto. li'.'d. Passed a beautiful little creek, of pure, cool waier, about 12 51., where wc found a newly made grave. Ascending a high bluff near -the creek, where I had a most delightful view of the country to a great distance. I was reminded of the view of the Connecticut river valley, from lit. Holyoke. There is this difference, however; while one is cir cumscribed by LUIs and forest", the other is illimit able in extent, anu stretches from the rising to the pelting sun; and whin one is striped and cheeked with cornfields and meadows like acarpet, the other is capable of being checVed as numerously with States and nations. At some distance north of our route, Mr. Farkcr describes the country as follow? : "For about twenty-five miles since wv crossed the Elkhorn, and between the river and theN Platte, which are about ten miles apart, there is not sin gle hill. It is rich bottom land, covered wi:ha luxuriant growth ot grass.

Then this amazing extent of most fertile land willn.it continue to be tho wandering ground of a few thour-and Indians, with onfy B.yery feio acres under cultivation; nor will millions of tons of grass i;row up to rot upon the ground, or to be burned 1 wuli the fire enkindled to sweep over the prario ti diseii.-ninixT it of its spontaneous burden.

We find in the.New York Courier and Enquirer ' the following' favorable account of tho last, trial trip of this vessel. It will bo remembered that at the close of the trip, the Ericsson was capsized in a storm, and sunk. She will be raised wilhout much damage: TitE Performance or the Ericsson-. The public mind has been so long and so deeply interested in the ultimate success of the Ericsson, that it seems desirable, to gratify a laudable curiosity, that a oIm-.hM he eiven than has yet 1 f 1,-- ,.fnrmnno nilrinP the trill of tPW nrevious to tiic unfortunate disaster which belei her at its ciose. The ship left the dock at Thirteenth-street at a little before one o'clock. , ' -B -'j '"T" certain how bug she migni. ue" .u bb Softer discontinuing the working of her engines at the dock, allowed the fir, s to get very low, so that when she started she made but seven revolu tions per minute. As her fires brightened, her power increased, so that in passing the Battery she made eight turns, and at a distance of five miles beyond, her revolutions nau reacueu ten per min ute. Her speed increased as she progressed, ma king finally lull twelve tnrns, and she reached tho measured distance of eighteen miles from off Gov ernor's Island, in one hour and thirty-five minutes, being a little less than twelve miles per hour. Go ing down, the tide wi u favorable, but the wind was strong ahead on the quarter, which nearly counter acted the favorable influence of the tide. Returning, although tho tide was unfavorable, she made twelve miles per hour, passing a measur ed distance of eight miles in precisely forty min utes. Her engines, which are simply and admira bly planned and constructed, worked with extraor dinary precision and steadiness, turning the cen tres so strongly and steadily that the eye could not detect the least diminution of power. In fact, to use an expression which engineers will understand, "she turned a most beautiful wheel." This pres sure will be greatly increased by a slight alteration, about being made in some of the connecting pipes, which it is confidently expected will give thirty or forty pounds pressure, or even more if necessary. And now, to come to the most important and distinguishing point involved in the practical work ing of this ship, tlie economy of fuel The great question. How much coal will be required to pro pel a ship of her tonnage (2200 tons) twenty-four hours at the rate of twelve miles per hour? was clearly solved by the experience of thiR trip. Not over, certainly, ten to twelve tons will be needed, requiring only 120 to 150 tons for a voyage to Liv erpool, or nearly 1000 tons less than the Arabia or even the Atlantic sometimes consumes, and em ploying only about one-eighth of the working force of those ships. No comment on such results is needed. That a complete revolution in steam nav igation will be the consequence, is clearly evi dent It is proper for me to remark, in closing, that I have no interest of any kind in the ship, or in the invention ol Captain Juicsson. 1 was present sun ply as an invited truest: but I deem it due to that eminent inventor and that noble man, Mr. John B. Kitchinjr, who almost alone and unaided has thro' numberless discouragements peisevered in success fully developing this great invention of the age, to give tins plain unvarniilieu tale 01 its truly wonder t'ul and gratifying result. ROMANCE AND MURDER AT SEA. A poor fellow is now on his way to California, to have his trial for murdering a young woman on the Yankee Blade, between New Tork and Rio. A letter to the Panama Star gives the names and par ticulars: The prisoner, whose name is Edward H. Avery, now on board the steamer, is a young man of about twenty -six years of age, born in bpnnglield, Mass., of respectable parents, himself being a person of considerable intelligence and rather agreeable in his manners. The deceased female, whose name was Susanna Russell, was rather a good looking young woman, with bright eyes; she was about twenty years of age. They became acquainted in a house of ill-fame in Worcester, Mass., where they both resided at the time. Avery, becoming much at tached to her, proposed taking her to California, and for that purpose he brought her down to New York city, where they fived together as man and wile. until he engaged passage for her onboard the Yan kee made, he agreeing to work Jus own passage, He represented her as his sister on board. The Captain, whose goodness of heart throughout this whole sad affair has been most noble and humane, in order to protect her from insult in the steerage, lor which her passage had been taken, gave her berth in a state-room, in the second cabin, with an other woman. Tins removed her considerably from the presence of her lover, who worked on the for ward deck; and she, taking advantage of her posi tion, besran to tlirt with the younjr men on board. which, when the knowledge thereof came to the ears of Avery, rendered him exceedingly jealous. On the 13th of February, at about 8 o'clock in the evening, the passengers were alarmed by shrieks lrom a lemale voice, which proved to be busanna Russell, who ran about the alter deck, cryinjr, "my brother has killed me 1" and falling upon the deck, in five minutes she was a corpse. She had been but a few minutes previous to that, sitting in the cabin, engaged in a lively conversation with one of the passengers, when Avery called her on deck. On approaching her he drew from a belt in his -"side a large ten inch bowie-knife, with which he stabbed her in tlie right breast severing the right epheme ral artery, the knife passing through her back. Im mediately after committing this dreadful deed, he snapped a pistol twice at his own breast, but tind ing it would not go off, he drew a razor from his pocket, with which he cut a deep and severe gash in his throat, then rushing forward to where she had fallen, and where the passengers and others be gan to collect, he cried, "stand back, gentlemen, I did it ; then falling beside the dead body, he bent over it and kissed the marble cheeks, saying "I loved that girl, but you cabin passengers did this. This was the most heart-rendering scene the writer ever witnessed. There laid the poor mangled body of tlie unfortunate girl; over her bent her equally unfortunate though guilty lover, uttering tho most lamentable expressions of his fervent attachment to her, wlnle the blood came streaming lrom his throat. Every one expected to see him momenta rily expire. He did not die, however, as the sur geon succeeded in sewing up his wound, and he is now nearly recovered. He had a preliminary ex amination before the American Consul at Rio de Janeiro, who ordered him on to San Francisoo for trial. PT" The following article from the St Louis IntcUIgenrer, in reference to the Ward case, express es, 83 we think, a temperate and just judgment up on that melancholy affair: "Fiat Justitia, Boat Coxini." The evidence in the Matt Ward trial which we give to day, we have condensed with a good deal of care, so as to put it in a reasonable reading compass. We have given the leading testimony for the prosecution and defense, and the reader can easily detect the points relied on by either party. Tho public having the testimony thus before them, will readily form opinions on tlie merits of the case. For ourselves, we are free to admit that the sou of a rich familv." We do not justify Ward. We do not say that the evidence JistiGes him. God forbid! His wrong is a great ono atd will weigh him down like a mill stone till he sinks in his grave, and meets his late antagonist in that land where life cannot be taken. But we do say that woi;e deeds have been done, and are done frequenUy, t'nall have been proved on Matt Ward. Butler struck Ward first! Who would have sup posed such to be the fact from the torrent of preju dice that has prevailed against Ward! Yet the lact is fully proved by Butler's dying decimations to the surgeon? who attended him; and by other and concurrent testimony that we cannot reject. Itis true that the blow given by Butler did tot justify Ward's shooting; but it is also true that Ward's insulting language did not 'n law consti tute an assault on Butler, so as to justify Uie latter in striking Ward. But tlie conduct of tho Ward's in the whole affair was ill-advised, intemperate and highly censurable, and though not such as to fix the stain of rnrfw, in its dark and terrible sense, on one of the family, it cannot but surround him wiih an uneasy remembrance of a man slain, and a noble woman heart-broken, and a babe made fatfierless, that will be far more crushing in its work on the spirit than the material penalties of the dread rimeofmurdcr.

FROM XEf MEXICO. -J irrniFXTIC REPORT OF THE GREAT BATTLE WITH TUB AP,1CIIK3. Tbnmul from the west arrived la-t night, bring- in? us oanta re papers of the IS:h, ami letters . Burtrwin. hear Taos, to tlie 2191" e Cantonment Burcwin, hear of March, to-f.icnds in this city.- From-these let-r- ters we learn the following authentic particulars,. of the desperate battle between the' command 9 Lieutenant Davidson and the Apache Indians, a 1 1'eW 'miles from Taos. ' ' 1 On the night of the 2Gth of March, Lieut. David son left Cantonment Burgwin, in command ol fifty- ; seven men, in pursuit of the Apaches, who were supposed to be about one hundred strong. Next morning. about 7 o'clock, he came upon the In dians, posted upon a mountain, and far exceeding in numbers what had been represented. T bey numbered at least two hundred. There was but one alternative, as they raised the war-whoop up on the approach of the command, and uie attack up on them commenced at once. After a fight of three hours, during which Lieut, Davidson lost twenty-two men killed, and twenty one wounded, two-thirds of the command being killed and wounded, lie was jorceu to retire, ngnt ing his way over two miles, and with the disadvan tage of having the wounded to carry with 'him. ' Lieut. Davidson received an arrow wound, not very severe, in a hand to hand coflict. Surgeon Ma gruder was also wounded slightly. The victory was a dearly bought one by the In dians, as about fifty of litem were killed, and nothing but their vast superiority in numbers gave. them, the triumph. Everything was safe at Cantonment Burgwin, there being fifty odd men there. It was expected that the whole ot the Uenerai s dispos able force would be sent out against the enemy. Another letter, dated the 31st, says: "They com menced firing upon us, every shot taking effect, either upon Uie horse or men. It was a sad sight to see so many men tailing dead by my sine, we were in so bad a place that the Indians had great advantage of us, and when we retired they were on all sides of us; and had we stopped three min utes longer, not a man would have been savea. The wounded are now in the hospital. A Mexican whom I met in Taos to-day, told me that ho was at the place of action yesterday afternoon, and counted sixty dead Indian bodies. "Maj. Blake and Thompson, witn a tew troops and a large number of Mexicans, started last night to bring in the dead bodies, and to aiiactc tne In dians, if they could be found." Among tha volunteers in this desperate engage ment, was Mr. George M'Kunnegle, jr., ot this city, who was an active participant, and behaved with all the coolness of a veteran. He escaped un hurt From our Santa Fe papers, we extract the follow ing news : Return of the Expedition in search of the Utah Indians. 'lhe expedition in search of the Utah Indians who stole the animals lrom near Taos, about three weeks ago, and which we noticed in our paper of the 4th. returned, after an absence of eleven days, Saturday the 11th inst. They fol lowed them about an hundred and forty miles, but failed to overtake them. They travelled up the valley of the Del Norte until they struck the In dian trail, about ten miles above the mouth of the Trinchares, thence through the Sand Hill Pass, on to the head of tlie Heurleno, down the same ten miles and turned up the north fork into the valley of the Wet Mountains. They returned by the head of tho Sangre de Cristo pass and Fort Massachu setts. They saw many indications of Indians, and at one place counted more than one hundred lodge marks. They followed the trail until it jointed the mam village, which is now encamped further north in the valley of the Valle Salado; and number, as is supposed, near three thousand warriors. The de tacnraent crossed tho trail of Col. Fremont, in his receut survey for a railroad, and found large quan tities of snow, sufficient to render the route imprac ticable. Witchcraft and Sorcert atNambe. We learn ed, while in the Rio Arriba, last week, that three or four men had been killed in the Indian Pueblo of Nambe. for the crime of witchcraft. The Catho lic priest at Canada states that a deputation of In dians waited upon him, with written charges against four or five of their number, then in con finement, accused of having eaten up the little chil dren of the village. He ordered them to be liber ated, as there was no cause to keep them confined, One of the deputation appeared satisfied, and said he would not have anything more to do with the matter, but the orthers objected, and seemed bent on having them executed. Two or three days after wards, the priest inquired of some one lrom the Pueblo, what had become of the prisoners, and told they had all been put to death. We presume the matter will be judicially inquired into at the coming term of the Santa Fe Court. Dkpredations of the Utah Indians. Wc re ceived news from Taos, two or three days ago, that the Utah Indians had been committing recent dep redations in that section oftlic Territory. On the 2Gth nit, a party of them made a descent upon the settlement of Culebra, and stole about thirty horses. Information was immediately given to Maj. Blake, commading Cantonment Burgwin, at Taos, who started a company of dragoons in pursnis in the morning of the 2Sth ult They were accompanied by Kit Carson, the Indian Agent, and about twen ty citizens as volunteers. An Attempt to Assassinate. One of the most cold-blooded attempts to assasinate which it has ever fallen to our Jlot to record was made in tlr's county on Saturday night lasts. Mr. Abner Tate, a highly respectable citizen, residing 17 miles norih of Huntsville, whilst standing in the porch of his dwelling, between 8 and 9 o clock at night, was fired upon by some one, distant only a few feet, and his left arm and sides were severely, if not se riously, injured. The muscles of the arm. we are informed, were literally torn off, the arter' was cut, and it was otherwise perforated, by scattering shot The bone, fortunately, was not broken, tho' the shot were large, and accompanied, it is believed, by a slug. His side was considerably injured, but none of the shot entered the cavity. When last heard from he was as well as, from the nature of his wounds, it was expected ho could be, and his physicians entertain the hope of -his recovery with out the loss of his arm. No clue to the assassin has as yet been discovered. IlunlsviUe Democrat of tlie 4th inst. Destructive Conflagration St. Paul's Church Destroyed. About 1 o'clock this morning, St. Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church, corner of Charles and'Saratoga streets, was discovered to be on fire. The whole interior of the vast structure was destroyed, there being nothing left standing except the bare walls and the lofty steeple. The large and costly organ is also in ruins. The re cords and all other papers of the diocese of Marj' land, contained in an iron safe in the building, were fortunately saved. It is not known how the firo originated, but it is supposed to be the work of an incendiary. The church was erected and dedicated in 1817, at a gross cost of $130,000. There is an insurance upon the building of $20,000 in the Baltimore Equitable Society. Bait. Pat., 20lhiiH. The Dauphin Once More. The following is communicated to the Pennsylvania Inquirer, as new evidence to prove that the Rev. Mr. Williams is the real Dauphin: "A highly respectable and eminent physician of this city, whoso name I now personally furnish you with, and which you are at libety to mention to all inquirers, was told by Mrl Elliot, a gentleman from New Orleans, that twenty years ago, Mn Bellan ger, at New Orleans, told Mr. E. that the Rev, Mr. Williams was the Dauphin son of Louis XYI. These two gentlemen have been staying at the United States Hotel, and when Mr. E. heard of the presence of Mr. Williams, ho communicated this intelligence to him, and made an affidavit of it on oath, which Mr. Williams took with him. 011 leaving the city, two or three days ago. Jlr. Bel langer, it will be recollected, was the person who brought the Dauphin over, and placed him with the Indian family.1' Killed Himself in a Fit of Passion. A suicide of rather a strange character took place night be fore last.in the village of Hammeltown, in Millcreek township, about six miles from the city. A man named Leonard nouselet was engaged in mould ing candles, but the moulds leaking, he became en raged, iind after a scries of curses, seized a shot gun, and rushing to a shed in the yard, he deliber ately cocked the gun, placed the muzzle to his breist, aad with his boot-toe pulled the trigger. The contents lodged in his breast and he expired in a few minutes. Hou3elet's wife was present du ring this horrible affair, but was so shocked by hi3 expression of rage that, through fear of her own life, she was prevented from thwarting her husband in his self-murder. This is one of the strangest suicides that ever came under our observation. Coroner Noble held an inquest over the body yesteaday, and a verdict was rendered in accordance vith the above facts. Cin.

The Baltimore Times give3 the following "new reading" of a play well known to our play-going readers: Dramatic Actiiors and their Heroes. Koli hntThe Stranaer. It has been a common error to suppose that Kotzbue was a German poet, and that the Stranger and Mrs. Haller were husband and wife, and people of high degree in "Vater I.andt" This is all u mistake; and, a3 veritable chroniclers of the abstract and brief items of the times, we feel called upon to set it right Tho true history of the matter is S3 follows: Kotzbue wa3 a lop-eared fellow, who kept a l.iger-bier saloon down on .tells 1'omt, where, lrom crediting out an unusal quantity of drinks to the chaps who loafed about there on Sunday, he soon became "flat broke," and consequently felL into a melancholy, and tbence verr naturally subsided into writinir for the stage. Mr. and Mrs. Haller also emigrated to these parts about this time and set up shop, eath on his and her individual hook Mrs. Haller as a cake and cand v womau, and the masculine Haller as an open er of oysters. One day Mrs. Haller was observed to make rather freo with some of the fire boys about there, whereupon Air. ilaller llew into a rage, and a general muss was kicked up. They agreed to play quits, and Mr. Haller having goneone. way, Mrs. Haller went the other way, and thus, one having eone to the east and the other to the west. like Abraham and Lot, there was peace as well as distance between them. With these slight incidents in this domestic dra ma, Kotzbue, under the influence of an extra pot of beer, took up the subject, and when facts were wanting, he ccked out the plot with lancy. ith a slanderous predisposition, peculiar to small-beer poets, lie represented Airs. Haller as having run away with some scurvy individual, taking with her the two children of her unhappy union with tho unfortunate and ruined Haller. Haller himself was represented as retiring to a neck of woods close by. where, with a. book under his arm, he whiled away the hours in a state 01 nopeie&s melancholy. The dramatist proceeds to represent that the fel low who ran away with Airs. Haller, becoming dis gusted with her. and entertaining a wish to "graze in fresh pastures," jeft her to shift for herself her and llaller's two little children. But thia 13 all mere stuff. The truth is as follows: She didn't kuow exactly what to do at first, but at last putting a bold face on the matter, she advertised in one of the papers for a situation as chambermaid. Her advertisement was answered by a very respectable sort of woman, named Mrs. Winterston, who had a husband of the same name, and whom the dramat ist has dignified by calling the Count and Countess Winterston. It is needless to say that she got the s tuation and entered upon her new vocation. It is represented in the play that Mrs. Haller had a good deal of money, and was in the habit of giving it away like dirt; but this is all gammon. It's a clear case that she hadn't tho first red cent her husband having runaway with every copper of it Mrs. Haller continued in her situation, and things went on in this way for about a month, when one day, happening to be walking about in the suburbs, she encountered Mr. Haller (the stranger) sitting on a log, and sighing, as she expressed it "fit to bust" This was too much for the too sensitive heart of Mrs. Ilaller, and approaching the Stranger with a frantic air, she exclaimed: "Jimmy, is it you!" "It is jist," said the Stranger, and they went into each others arms with a rusli. 1'he upshot was, that the twain agreed to say nothing more about what had happened, and they both are now living in extreme domestic felicity at Fell's Point as aforesaid. As for Kotztue, he was so ashamed of having written such a scurvy play as the one above illumin ated, that he retired into obscurity, and hasn't been heard of since. Jiaftimort Times. 8100 ItEAVAItD!
