Liet Hamilton, of the od Artil lery, ac .ompanicd the commission as inter preter. Col. Barbour will leave for the Col orado in September, and will probably be es corted by Gen. Bean and hia volunteer' com mand. The Indian commission is entirely out of funds. Two Men Lynbhed. A letter from Sonora, dated June 15th, gives the following information : This haa been truly an eventful day. While quietly in thcoffiee attending to busi ness, our ears were suddenly startled by the quick report of the unmistakable Colt's six hhooter. The street was soon cleared, and on taking a look I saw the marshal, Mr. Mc Farland, backing down the street, exchang ing shots with a Chilcuo, whom he had at tempted to arrest. The Chileno was still ad vancing, when one of the constables fired and shot the assailant iu the breast, killing him dead. During this melee the Mexicans and Chilenos attempted a rescue, whereupon the fisrht became general between them and the Americans, which resulted in the killing of i V .1 .1 two .Mexicans ana wountung inree outers. The light soon after subsided by the foreign ers furcating. It is expected that there will be a general attack on the Americans to-night, but if they should wake up the lankcts they will 'catch a Tartar," as we arc all prepared. Truly these are exciting times. Two of the murderers of Capt. Snow were arrested in town this forenoon, and on being tried and calmly convicted, they were taken off and hung by the people. 1 hey were sub scqueutly buried in the same grave they had dug for their victim. The people in their might arc rising, and the account they will have to settle with the uinrdercrs and thieves who infest us will be a warning to them in the future. Murders occur frequently in Sonora and the neighborhood, notwithstanding the severe examples already made In consequence of an article which appear ed in the Sonora Herald, a party of gamblers went to the office and shot Dr. Guun, thced itor, Mr. Christian, one of the proprietors, and a Mr. Coufforth. Four others were wounded, and several arrests were made. We make up the following additional items: At Murphy's Crossing, near Trinidad, a new lead had been struck, which was paying from 50 to SCO per dav a man. It is about forty miles front the mouth of the Salmon river, on the Klamath. The party which left Trinidad for the pur pose of punishing the Indians had returned, but they had not succeeded in obtaining any clue to those who were concerned in the mur der of young Walker, of Trinidad, or his un cle. The body of the latter and another had been found. The Indians in the vicinity of Smith's and Rogue's rivers appear to have been very troublesome, and many of the tribes arc rep resented as having committed numerous acts of treachery. A company of volunteers from Shasta Valley, and several other parties, were in arms against the Indians, who arc rep resented as being brave and well armed. .A light occurred between a party of about ten whites and thirty Indians in the valley of rmitli s river, in which four of the latter were killed. Several other skirmishes had taken place, in which more or less were kill ed and wounded. The troops under command of Capt. Keyes, U. S. Army, on escort duty to the Indian Commissioners, arrived at Los Angeles on the ltith, en route for their respective posts at Monterey and San 1 rancisco. The three companies of the 2d Infantry under command of Major Heintzleman, formerly stationed at (.'.imp Yuma, Colorado river, have beeu with drawn to San Isabel, a point sixty miles from San Diego. A guard of ten men has been left at, the Colorado for the protection of the ferry. Juan Antonio, an Indian chief the Cahu illas, and who led the Indians in the attack up m Irving' s men, had become alarmed by statements that aparty was coming from Los Aii2 l.s to destroy him and his tribe, and had left hisrancheria at Apolitan on that ac count. On the 2d of June he was met at the rancho of San Bernadino, and a truce was made with him. From the Star we learn also that Mayor Hamilton, who had been to Durango, Chihua hua and Sonora, for sheep, had returned to Los Angeles. Three of his party had been killed by the Apache Indians. On the 28th April, the Indians came into camp with ap parently friendly intentions, and said that they desired to trade. As soon as the com pany were put off their guard, the Indians Janced and killed Henry Schmidt, a German by birth, and a man named Arnold. This occurred at Agua Prieta. The Americans killed one of the Indians, and the rest ran away. On the next day they met the Apa ches, who held out a white flag, and declared that they desired peace with the Americans. These and similar protestations induced Hen ry Gray, one of the party, to return to camp with the Indians, and on the road they kill-, cd him .as. they. bad done Schmidt and Arn old. Gray was from Newport, Ky., but for some time past had been residing at El Paso' About the time Major Hamilton passed thro' Santa Cruz, the Apaches made a charge into that town, where there are fifty troops sta tioned. The soldiers made no resistance, and the Indians carried away with them a Mexi can boy, about four years old. ; The Apaches are well armed, and are at war with all other tribes except the teaman ches. They are afraid to attack the Ameri can emigrants, but will cut on all stragglers, whenever an opportunity is afforded, ana will attack the Mexicans, no matter at what odds. . Maj. Hamilton was told by an officer of the army, in oonora, mat in case tne luexi can G overflment failed to afford ' protection to the inhabitants of that State, application would bo made to the United States for an- nexatiom Something must be done, or the whole of Northern Mexico will be deserted. Sonora affords the finest pasture lands in the world, but here, as in the adjoining States, the inhabitants are in the greatest dread of (bo Indians. Nearly all the ranchos have been deserted, and the people have fled, to the towns aud villages. Sheep and cattle were verv scarce la Sonora.

THE V irl i ! Habeas Corpus Case. We noticed yesterday the arrest by Capt. Forno of James L. Chambers and John D. Starke, on the suspicion that they were the persons who stand accused of the murder of E. W. Harris, at Greensboro' Ala. A tel egraphic despatch from the prosecuting at torney at Cahawba, Ala., was received in this city and placed Jn possession of Capt. Forno. It gave a description of the young men who are charged with the murder of Harris, and whose names are Pratt S. Croom and Pleasant May. t The Captain having seen Chambers and Starke, was immediate ly struck with their resemblance to the , de scribed appearance of Croom and May, par ticularly in the case of Starke, whosesrsoM ale exactly coincides with the description of Croom, who is represented to be twenty-two years of age, five feet ten inches high, with light hair, blue eyes and pale visage. May is described to bo about the .same age and1 height, with a florid complexion, dark hair and eyes. A reward of 500 was offered for their arrest. Chambers and Starke were examined before the Acting ltecorder of the Second Municipality, and appearances were so much against them that a requisition was only required from the Governor of Alabama, to remove them to the scene of their sup posed crime. But a writ of lutheas rorjuis was sued out yesterday in the Second Dis trict Court, aud the parties were brought be fore Judge Lea. .' . The petition of the accused for the writ of habeas corpus set forth the facts of their arrest and detention in prison, and stated that they were residents of lexas, on a visit to this city; that their names were Cham bers and Starke, and that they had no part iu the alledged murder. Capt. Haviland and Mr: , Drew testified to their statement, and Mr: Churchill, who knows the real persons who arc accused, de clared on oath that Chambers and Starke were not the same. Judge Lea accordingly discharged the ac cused, being satisfied that they were not identical with the parties charged with the murder. . The National Era on New Mexico And Slavery.

Should any thing of importance occur in Cuba, the G overnment has no means of getting speedy information of it by any public armed pteam er. There is not a steam vessel now at the command of the Government that can be re lied on for speed and certainty, considering the exigencies that might, at any moment, arise in - reference to Cuban matters.

Later From Cuba, Iiy the steamer Cherokee, which arrived at New Orleans on the 5th inst., we have eight days later intelligence from Cuba. -There is ho decisive news by this arrival. The News From Cuba. As we anticipated, the news from Cuba by the Cherokee is by no means decisive. What we have is certainly favorable to the Patriot cause, and that we have not more is owing to the vigilance of the Government in obstructing all the channels of information. The Royalist papers are full of official re ports of encounters with the rebels, and name several prisoners who have surrender ed or been captured. The hist dates say that the island is perfectly tranquihzed, and that the few factious persons who had taken up arms, have been dispersed or have implored the mercy of the government: This in is the face of the facts, known to every one, that in all the serious encounters which have taken place, the Patriots were successful, and that the troops of the Government had not j-et made even a demonstration on the position of the insurgent forces in the mountains of Coscorro. The proclamations and addresses which we published in our paper of last eve ning, show conclusively that a number of the inhabitants of Trinidad had "pronounc ed" in favor of the popular cause. If we may believe the assertions of the Patriots themselves, they comprised five hundred of the most respectable .and wealthy citizens of lnmdad. e published, last evening, their address to the soldiers of the Spanish army, in reply to that issued by the Government. lhey addressed another to the "Sons of Cu ba, of which the following is a translation : "The hour selected by fate for the liberty of Cuba has at last arrived ; the hour for the i i:: t ti : 'O i PL Wit's bvth l-r;'r-iplci of the resolutions nJoti October Convention held in Jackson in 1813 and that therefore no commjrencjr ba- arisen which can excuse or palliate a forcible re- siwtancc to its action - - ; " - -- That the. late compromise measures adopted by Congress are constitutional enactments; are nowtha law, of the land; and imperatively de mand tho acquiescence of every citizen of the .
