Arrival of the Sierra Nevada.
Murder at Washington City by a Californian. AFFAIRS GENERALLY. The Washington Star of May 8th, gives the following acconnt of the murder commit ted by Mr. P. T. Herbert: To-day, shortly after 11 a. m., P. T. Her bert, a California hicmber of the House of Representatives of the United States, went over to breakfast at Willard’s Hotel, where lie takes his meals, and sent a boy from the breakfast room for his breakfast. In four or five minutes after a portion of his break fast was set before him, and the boy then told him that at that hour it would be ne cessary for him (the boy,) to get an order 'from the office to have a breakfast sent up from the kitchen. Herbert told the boy to “Clear out, you Irish son of a b .” He turned around ito another waiter, Thomas Keating, who was standing near by, and exclaimed, “And 5 on, you damned Irish son of a b , clear •out, too.” The answer of Thomas Keating was not comprehended by our informant (an •eye witness.) Herbert, on being answered by Thomas, irose and struck him on the neck behind, with iliis list. Thomas Keating seized a plate and threw it at Herbert. Herbert seized a chair and threw it across the round table at Tlios. Keating, striking him with it. They then clinched and fought. Another Californian, whose name we have not heard, came in at the door and ran to 1 lerbert’s assistance, and also struck Thomas Keating with a chair. Patrick Keating, the brother of Thomas (and the steward of the house,) at that time coming into the room, ran to his brother’s assistance, and seized Herbert, who imme diately drew a revolver. The other Cali fornian at that time was striking both the Keatings with a chair. As Herbert drew bis revolver, Patrick Keating seized it by the barrel, and they struggled over it for some moments, until the French cook of the house came in and separated Herbert and P. Keating, who let go his hold of the pistol barrel. Thomas Keating and the other Californi an were mingled in that particular part of the fray between Herbert and Patrick. Af ter Patrick let go the barrel of the revolver, Herbert seized Thomas (who had clinched him and was struggling for the pistol,) by the collar, and, putting the pistol to bis breast, shot him through the lungs, killing him in five minutes. After the shot, one of the other servants threw a piece of chinaware at Herbert, but none of the others interfered. Herbert and his Californian companion left the room and house immediately, by the Fourteenth street door, where Herbert took n hack and drove away. Subsequently lie delivered himself up at the office of Justice Daniel Smith, on Eighth street. His examination for killing Thomas Keat ing, aged about 34 or 3d years, (who leaves a wife and two children,) will take place at the guard-house at 4 r. m. The two Keatings were civil men, and were favorites with the boarders in the house. This account of the affray we take from the lips of one of the servant's, an aged man, who saw all of it. A telegraphic dispatch to New York on the Oth, at 10 o’clock, t\ m., states that t lie examination of Mr. Herbert, on charge of shooting Thomas Keating, at Willard’s Ho tel, was resumed that evening. The court room was densely crowded. District Attorney Key asked for a post ponement of the case, stating that at his in stance, Secretary Marcy had solicited Mr. Dubois, the Netlierlaiui Minister, who saw the occurrence, to attend as a witness, but Mr. Dubois declined doing so at present, wishing first to consult with oilier members of the Diplomatic Corps. Mr. Key remarked that foreign ministers being exempt from process in such cases, Mr- Dubois must at tend voluntarily, if at all, and there was no probability of his attendance until to-morrow. The counsel for defence opposing a post ponement, the sitting justices ordered the examination to proceed. Arnold Harris, John E. Reynolds, Major Graham and William A. Gardiner were ex amined for the defence. Mr. Gardiner is the Californian who was in company with II erbert when the difficulty occurred, and with whose pistol Herbert shot Keating.— Mr. G ardiner and Mr. Herbert lodged to gether, and the latter, as Mr. G. states, took the pistol from the mantel-piece of their room on the evening preceding the occur rence. Mr. Gardiner gave a graphic de scription of the light, in which lie was a prominent actor. Messrs. Bradley, Weller, Percy, Walker and Phillips addressed the court in favor of the discharge of the prisener. District At torney Key replied on the part of the prose cution, the question of bail entering largely into his argument. After a session of live hours, the prisoner was remanded to the cus tody of the United States Marshal, the Court stating that they would render their decision to-morrow. Congress. ona l ai *d other matters of a gov ernmental cliara " tc r U1 'c ns they were.— There is every probability that the Wulker- Bivas government was recognized gome days before this. Both Houses of Congress have passed a bill granting the State of Iowa 1,£4)0,000 acres of luud for railroad pur poses. Political intelligence is extensively mixed. The New Jersey State Democratic Conven tion chose delegates to the National Con vention favorable to Mr. Buchanan, while those from South Carolina were instructed to vote for Pierce, The Philadelphia City election resulten in the choice of Richard Vuux, the Democratic candidate for Mayor. The ultra free soil portions of the New Jer sey, Massachusetts and New Hampshire Know Nothing State Councils have formal ly repudiated the nomination of Fillmore and Donelson, and have agreep to join the “Republican” Convention ol June. On the 6th of May a great trotting match, for a stake of $10,000, mile heats in harness, came off at the Union Course, Long Island, the horses “Bo i" and ‘ k a S^ni" The latter won the race, makiug the last mile in 2:37 Tee ship Adriana, from New York, bound to San Francisco, was abandoned in a sink ing condition on the 5th of May off Nan tucket Shoals. Her crew were saved, and they returned to Boston. The Adriana cleared on the 12th ult, with a cargo of 1,455 tons of coal. There is an insurance of $102,000 on the ship and cargo. Meetings are being held in the large cities to express substantial sympathy tor the starving inhabitants of the Cape De \ erdes. Large amounts were collected. The value of foreign goods imported at the port of Boston during the week ending 2d ult., amounted to $1,253,306. The boiler of the steamboat J. D. Fierce exploded at St. Johns, New Brunswick, on the 8th May, killing four persons and se riously wounding several others. A locomotive on the Catawissa railroad, Pennsylvania, exploded on the 1th, killing three persons and wounding more. ,1. (». Percival, the poet and State Geolo gist of Iowa, died recently at Chicago. Mr. Smith, the proprietor of the New York Sunday Courier, was cowhided by Win. Systcr, a returned Nicaraguan; and Maj. Heiss, late government bearer of gov ernment dispatches to Nicaragua, had a light with the editor of the Washington Star —how belligerent Nicaragua makes people! The legislature of Connecticut, in joint meeting, have re-elected Mr. Minor Gover nor of the State. The State Council of the American party in Illinois has endorsed the nomination of Fillmore and Donelson. The Wilmington, Delaware, municipal election resulted in guing the American party four, and the Democrats one of their candidates. The schooner Daniel Parker, of Orleans, from Bangor to Now York, was wrecked on the 9th May. The master, mate and cook were drowned. Kent’s cotton mill at Paw tucket, Rhode Island, was burned lately.— The loss was heavy, and there was $18,600 insurance. The office of the Belvidere and Trenton, N. .1. railroad was robbed on the night of May 8th, of $5000. SEVEN DAYS LATER FROM EUROPE. Further Ratification of the Peace Treaty. SPANISH INTERFERENCE WITH CENTRAL AMERICAN AFFAIRS. On the 1th May, the Canadian steamship North America arrived at Quebec, bringing Liverpool dates to the 23d April. On the Stli, the Royal Mail steamer America arrived at Halifax, with dates to the 2tHh of April. The Turkish and Prussian Governments hud ratified the Treaty of Peace. Dis patches from the Crimea state that portions of the English army had left, soon to be fol lowed by the entire Allied army, K inborn and Kupatoria being the first places evacua ted. The Russian militia was ordered to disband, and the Admirality had issued in structions for placing buoys in the Gulfs of Finland and Bothnia, and to light the light houses there and on the Baltic and White Sens. A letter from Vienna says that tlie com mission to organize the Principalities will commence its labors very shortly. Omar Pasha’s army will be formed into moveable columns, for the purpose of enforc ing the execution of the new laws. The Paris correspondent of a leading Brussels journal states that a dispatch had been received, which announced that the Danish Government had consented to the arrangements which had been offered by foreign governments, for the regulation of the Sound Dues. Central American affairs appear to have alarmed the Spanish Government, so much so that it was reported in Paris, on the au thority of a privrtc letter from Madrid, that the Government was desirous of making an expedition, combined with France and En gland, against Nicaragua, in order to pre vent the fillibusters from passing to Cuba, when they finish their work under Walker. But Spain has no sympathy in her appre hensions from France and England ; though they are said to be advising her to keep clear from any interference with the United States. The Czar Alexander and his principal officers laid visited Moscow, where they were received by the authorities and nobility with enthusiasm and display. The Emperor delivered an address on the peace question, in which he explains his motives for accept ing the treaty, lie said : ‘‘Many of you, I am aware, regret that I should have so readily accepted the propositions made to me. 11 was my duty as a man, and as the head of a great empire, either to rejector accept them frankly. I have honorably and conscientiously fulfilled that duty. J am sure that allowances will he made for the difficult position in which I w us placed, and that shortly every devoted friend of Hu.-sia will render justice to my views and in tentions for the welfare of the country. ‘‘Supposing the fate of arms should have re mained constantly favorable to ns, us it has been in Asia, the empire would have exhausted its re sources in keeping up large armies on different points, the soldiers of which would, in a great measure, be taken away from agriculture and labor. In the government of Moscow itself many manufactories have been compelled to close. I prefer the real prosperity of the arts of peace to the vain glory of combats. •'I have thrown open the ports of Russia to the commerce of the world ; the frontiers to the free circulation of foreign produce. I wish, hence forth, that the greatest facility shall he afforded in our markets for the exchange of wares of every origin, and of the raw materials and manufac tures of our soils. Various projects will shortly be communicated to you. the object of which will l e to give an impulse to home industry, and in which, l trust, every nobleman will takea share.’’ Rumors were current, arid obtained some credence, that the British government was inclined to give way in the position it had assumed in the controversy with the United States Government upon Central American affairs, but the belief was that Mr. Cramp ton would not be recalled. To this we may add the remarks of the London Morning Star, an organ of a portion of the ministry : ‘•We are told that at a meeting of the cabinet on Tuesday, the 22d, at which Lord Clarendon was present, for the first time since his return from Paris, the answer to the United States was agreed upon. On some of the points connected with the Central American question the British government are prepared to give way, but they are prepared to communicate to the United States that they are unanimous in their determination to continue him in his present position as British Minisser at Washington.” An imperial eftcree bad appeared in commanding a further reduction in the army. It was rumored that Lord Cowley will be British Minister to St. Petersburg, and that Lord Stanhope will succeed him at Paris. The Persian difficulty with England is on the way of settlement. Accounts from Te heran say that the Armenians arc endeavor ing to procure a treaty of commerce with the United States. Prince Gortchakoff, from Vienna, suc ceeds Count Nesselrode as Minister. Cron stradt is expected to be free from ice by the 13th to the 20th May, and Riga by the 25th of April at the latest. A grand Naval review took place at Spithead, England, on the 23d of April, in honor of the restoration of peace. Over 100,000 spectators were present, on sea and land. The fleet numbered over 240 ships of war, big and little, all steamers, with the exception of two ; comprised 34,000 horse hower ; carried 3,000 guns and 33,000 men; included sixteen gunboats and three floating batteries, and extended twelve miles along the water, east and west, across Spithead. The fleet formed four squadrons, and per formed a number of naval maneuvers for j the edification of the Queen. Afterwards the fleet made a sham attack on Portsmouth Castle, and the performances were concluded by illuminating all the ships with colored lights. Letter from General Walker. The following letter, written by Walker to Senator Weller, is taken from the New York Times. In a debate in the Senate, recently, Senators Weller and Douglass de fended the course pursued by Walker in his fillibustering movements : Granada, April 15. My Dear Sir :—By the last papers front New York, I learn that when I was de nounced in the Senate for the conduct Nic aragua has pursued towards the Transit Company, you were so generous as to under take to defend me from the nspersons of men utterly ignorant of my character. In con sequence of this, 1 take the liberty of writing some facts in relation to a Hairs here, and these facts will, 1 think, prove not unimport ant to the Government of the United States. You have doubtless learned from the newspapers how pacific was the policy Nic aragua proposed to pursue toward the other States of Central America. Notwithstand ing all overtures of peace, the neighboring governments showed themselves, it not posi tively, at least negatively, hostile to the ac tual administration of Nicaragua. It was constantly asserted, not oidy here, but throughout Central America, that the States were stimulated to this conduct by English and French agents But it was not until the correspondence oT the Consul General of Costa lliea in London was intercepted by me, a few weeks ago, that positive evidence was afforded of the active sympathy the British Government manifest for those who oppose the Americans in Nicaragua. The correspondence shows that England is furnishing arms and ammunition to our enemies, and at the same time the whole llritish West India Squadron is sent to San .Juan del Norte, in order that the moral weight of the English Government may be thrown into the scale against our Republic. I do not know how these facts may appear to people of the United States, but to me they seem directly at variance with Ameri can principles and American interests. These facts are potent to all, and their significance is apparent to the most superfi cial observer. There are other circumstan ces connected with the present war, waging in this State and in Costa lliea, which may require interpretation in order to make their importance felt. The Government of Costa lliea has never yet declared war against the Government of Nicaragua ; yet it has invaded our territo ries, has murdered American citizens, who have never forfeited the protection of the United States Government. This has been done under cover of a decree, issued by the President of Costa lliea, declaring war against the American forces in the service of Nicaragua. To declare war against the forces, in the service of Nicaragua, and not against Nicaragua herself is to deny, in the most positive and offensive manner, the right of Americans to engage in the service of a foreign State. Not only has this dec laration of war been made in this oppressive and unheard-of manner, but another decree has been published, ordering all American prisoners of war taken by the Costa lliea forces to be shot. This is to deny to Amer icans engaged in a foreign service the com mon rights to which soldiers are entitled by the laws of war. Such decrees as those I have mentioned not only throw Costa Rica, as I conceive, beyond the pale of civilized nations, but they also directly affect the honor and dig nity of the United States. They attempt to control the American people, and keep them within u limit which the American government has never prescribed. Costa lliea says Americans shall not emigrate to Nicaragua and take arms in her service.— It remains to be seen whether she can sus tain herself in so singular a position. In such a war as they are now waging against us, there can be but one result. They may destroy my whole force—a cir cumstance I deem almost impossible. They may kill every American nowin Nicaragua, but the seed is sown and not all the force of Spanish America can prevent the fruit from coining to maturity. The more suvage the nature of the war they wage against us, the more certain the result, the more terrible the consequences. 1 may not live to see the end, but I feel that my countrymen will not permit the result to be doubtful. 1 know that the honor and interests of the great country which, despite the foreign service 1 am engaged in, I still love to cull my own, are involved in the present strug gles, That honor must be preserved invio lute, and those interests must be jealously maintained. I begin, however, to leave facts, and therefore w ill coueludc. I remain, with high regard, your obedieut servant. Wm, Walker. Hon John B. Weller, U. S. Senate.
