CAMPBELL, Principal, AN 1 -XrCBMnUEI) Lr.TTEK OF TV ASM/NUTON. — At a recent meeting of the New York Histori cal Society (says the Boston Courier) Mr. Fred erick Depeyster stated that he had received im | ortant papers from Charles A. Clinton Esq., son <f De Witt Clinton. Among these was a let ter from Washington, written immediately after his discovery of the treason of Arnold to Gen. James Clinton, who was then with the north ern army. 7he letter, being written on both sides, was placed HI a Lame, between tivn stjraies of glass. Ihe pappr i* well preserved, and the writing legible. This letter has never been published : HEADQUARTERS, September 26, 1780. JV.AU SIR :—-I arrived yesterday on mv re turn trom an interview with the French Gener al and Admiral, and have been witness to a scene of treason, astonishing as it was unexpect ed. General Arnold, from circumstances, had entered into a plot for sacrificing \Ve<t Point. He had an interview with Major Andre, the British Adjutant-General, last week, at Jos. Smith's where the plan was concerted. f?y an extraordinary coincidence of incidents, Andre was taken on his return with several papers in Arnold's hand writing that proved his treason. Phe latter, unluckily, got notice of it before I did, went immediately down The river, got on board the Vulture, which brought up Andre, and proceeded to New Yo:k. I found the post jn the most critical condition, arid have been taking measures to give it securi ty, which I hope will be to-night effected.— V. ith the greatest respect and regard, I have th" honor to be vour most obedient servant, G. WASHINGTON. P. S.—Smith is also in our possession, and has confessed facts sufficient establish his guilt. ATTEMPTED MURDER AT EAST BOSTON.—A bout tliree o'clock on Saturday afternoon, a Swede, named John Schroeder, called at Police Station No. 7, . East Boston) and handed to Cap tain Seawr a note containing a request to Caj>- tain S. to send an officer with Schroeder to house No. 90 London street, where his wife was liv ing with another man. The object, of the visit was slated to be to obtain his own portrait which was in the wife's possession. Officer Gould was accordingly sent with Schroeder. T'pon seeing the man s wife, ho made known their errand, in answer to which, she stated that she bad not seen the portrait for three years, and did not know where it was. Schroeder immediately- accused hi r of her dereliction from duty and applied unseemly et j?h<-ts to her. She dropped her head and cast her eyes upon the floor, when he suddenly drew a pistol and discharged the contents at h*r, but fortunately missed his mark, and was immediately seized and secured by an officer. I The pistol was heavily charged with powder; and tnree Lall> or slugs, all of which just pass ed over her head, and were buried in the ceil- ! ing. The officer took the pistol from him and conducted him back to the Station House, whore he was observed to put his hand in his bosom, as if f.-cliog for another weapon. He was 5-ized, and on searching him another double I barrel pistol, loaded, cap'd and cocked was found. It was taken from h;ai. Tie acknowl edged that he had intended to use this iu case the first did not do the v ork. Some six or seven years since, Schroeder j kept a sailing boarding house in Norlh (then ! Ann) street. This woman was his second wife, | and bore him two children. During the last ! year Schroeder has been at the Sailor's Snug i harbor in New N ork, and said he "came on here I fo settle this affair with his wife." His chil-! (iren had an opportunity of seeing him at the j Station House, but refused to have anything to' ny to him, as be had previously threatened j their mother, and they were afraid of him. The 1 . visit to his wife on Saturday, was the third he j has made to her within aw k, and each time j an officer has accompanied him. He was com- I mitted to the Tomb* to await an examinati m.— j Boston Journal.

Arrival of* the Africa. I NEW YORK, May 28. —The steamship Alri ! ca from Liverpool, with dates to the 17th mst., arrived this evening. " The Havre steamer Arago from New York, arrived at Southampton on the 15th inst. The weather has been more genial. Parliament was not in session. Political affairs are quiet. Tiiestateof affairs in C'ential America was producing no excitement. The English journal in the government in terest explains Clarendon's letter respecting the ! 2,000 rilles for Costa Rica, saying that the Brit ish government have quantities of old muskets on sale, and will be glad to meet with other j customers besides the Costa Kicans. A pension of 5,000 has been granted to the [ Marquis of Dalhouse bv the East India Compa ny, on the ground that he annexed lour king doms to their territory. There is a great outcry against Palmerston ! having prohibited the playing of military hands in the parks on Sundays. The trial of Palmer, the alleged poisoner, is ; progressing at London, and is attracting much attention. The most eminent members of the ' English bar are employed on both sides. A Congress of Reformers of all nations was held at London. Robert Owen presided. Pe titions to Parliament and a memorial to the j Queen was adopted.

It is rumored that Bund will pass a vote of thanks to Prussia and Austria and express entire con currence in their policy. ITALY. —The Sardinian Senate passed a reso lution unanimously enforcing the policy of the government and the conduct of the peace plen- I ipotentiaries, and passed a vole of thanks to the j army and navy. President Marvin, of Venice, has published a Utter on Sardinian and Italian affairs, gener ally extolling the attitude of Sardinia in re ■ gard to Austria and the Pope. A Constantinople correspondent of the Lon don "Times," in reference to the treaty be tween the United States and Persia, savs it was concluded under the auspices of the Russian i mission, and ils spirit is directed against Eng land. It pretends to be a commercial treaty, arid would be so but fur three articles. The first of these say* the Piussians not being a rnaratime nation, tlm Americans will he obli ged, for the advantages which the treaty grants their commerce, to have a fleet in the Persian Gulf, in order to defend Persia against enter prises of whatever rnaratime nation might at tack her. The second gives Americans the right fo have ships-of-war in the Shalt n A rab, at the month of the Tigris. The third al lows them to have a factory at Skurnah. The London "Times" Crimean correspond ence sets down Ihe Russian losses in and around S"bastopol at eighty-six thousand, while one hundred thousand perished from fatigue and di sease. It says thev would not have been able to sustain themselves many days longer, had not peace been declared. Syria continues in a very unsatisactorv state. fxortl Stratford de Radclitfe has applied for aid, and obtained leave of absence. The Lon don papers infer that he has been recalled.

Correspondence of X. Y. Herald. From Cuba. Designs of Spain on Mexico—Gen. Rutin probably gone io Costa Rica Fresh car no of Slavs landed. HAVANA, Alav 18, 1856. The Spaniards propose to bombard Vera Cruz unless their debt is recognised bv the govern ment of Comfort, which was created in the days of Canedo, Captain General of Cuba, in order to put Santa Anna on his feet again in Mexico through the management of Buenaventura Vive, afterwards Consul at Havanoa, and the present Minister of .Mexico near the Court of her Cath olic Majesty. I think that in the course of this week three or lour additional vessels of war will be dispatched from this port for Vera Cruz, and that three or tour thousand soldiers mav go down at the same time. It is intimated that at this moment a small force might be as effective upon the City of Mexico—while the national resour ces and actual soldiery are short—as was the campaign of Gen. Scott, when the troops of the nation counted near sixty thousand men, of which thirty thousand were in and near the City of Alexico. Although the debt is the os- : tensible object, the hope is that something may occur to favor Spanish designs upon the court- i try, which have been long fostered, for impe- j rial purposes and the resumption of Spanish rule. | Ihe matter has been foi some time under dis cussion, and 1 think will shortly be acted upon, : unless the payment is promised. General Morales Roda has most strangely dis appeared from among us. He is one of our very best officers, and clever every way. A person looking very much like him went on board of, the steamship Illinois last trip for Aspinwall, and did not return to th" shore again. He did not wear the same name in his passport; hut the mustache was very like, if not the veritable, that encircles the upper lip of the gaTTant Gen eral. He can easily charter a schooner to go where he may list from Aspinwall, and Costa Rica will have the advantage of his councills. \\ <■ are getting a good many old Spanish irons in the fire, and some of them may burn. \X <• have had also three fresh cargoes of Afri cans landed in the last four weeks, with a little to much exposure.for high toned official nerves, and the Captain Genera! has caused the arrest of several subordinatetifficers, who have been duly suborned for the need of Cuba.it hands of labor. The arrests were made on the represen tations of the British Consul General ; but there will be no case made: the slaves are safe, and so will be all who have pocketed the golden charms. ROBBERY IN MERCER COUNTY. —On the night of Sunday, the 11th inst., Mr. Daniel Hal loway, of New Vernon township, was robbed of §2OO. The following are the facts as we have learned thern from a reliable source. Mr. Holloway, a tew days before, bad re ceived S2OO on an article for the sale of land, as the agent of John E. Siright. On ilie even ing in question he had gone to bed, and about midnight he was awakened by a noise j n the adjoining room. He got up, lighted a candle and proceeded to enter the room, but found that the door was tautened on the inside. He broke

open the door, when the light was blown out and he was felled to the door by a blow from a club, and beaten severely after he was down a voice oh the outside exclaiming, '-Kill him. kill him." After beating him for some time, and doubtless suppling him dead, the robber went to the bureau, where the money had been placed, and openei. the drawer, took it and jumped through a window. The family was by this time aroused, but when they came with lights the robbers were gone. The neighbors were immediately notified, who tracked the rob bers for a mile or more, when all trace of them was lost. Air. Jlallowav is severely injured, but will, it is thought, recover. I here is no doubt from the circumstances but that Air. Hallo way is indebted to some of his neighbors for this unceremonious visit. They are suspected, and considerable evidence has been discovered to support the suspicion.—.Mer cer Whig. GREAT SUFFERING IN THE WEST.— United States Soldiers Ealing their own Companions. —The following is an extract from a prtvate Ut ter received in this city by the editor of the Mil itary Argus : FORT PIERCE, \. T. f Saturday, March 15, 1856.—-A most horrible affair happened between here and Sioux City in December last, which is almost too hideous to relate. Three soldiers named Bigart, Wicker and Cornell, deserted from Companies D and 11, Second Dragoons, about the first ol December, and started down the river. On their way they oveitook four persons from this place, who were proceeding in the same direction, and as self-preservation suggested the idea of strength in numbers, they mutually agreed to travel in company. Up to this time, and tor some tpn or twelve days af ter their junction, the weather had been remar kably mild and pleasant. A few days after, however, heavy snows, accompanied with in tense cold, set in, which continued with but lit tle intermission for thirty or forty days, during which time but little progress was made. At length their scanty stock of provisons gave out, and starvation seemed inevitable, for they were at least two hundred miles in a direct line from tile nearest settlement. For six days, without a particle of food, they continued their course down the river, lint made very little progress towards their destination.— I nder these accumulated sufferings the soldi.r named Cornell died, and the others, to appease their hunger, cut up his body and eat his flesh. The following night one of the civilians died, and his body was disposed of in like manner.— Chi the succeeding nigh' two more of the civil ians di-d, but, as the party was discovered shortly after, the living were spared the necessi ty of making any further meals upon the dead bodies ol their companions. They were found by a part of Major Howe's command, and when first discovered they were regaling themselves upon the arms and legs of their unfortunate companions. The survivors were taken to Major Howe's ramp, ar.d nndei proper care and attention have all recovered.— Milwaukie Sentinel. PREMATURE BURIALS. —The haste which some people manifest to write their friends obi tuaries often gives rise to grave mistakes, which woukt be ludicrous were it not for the solemnity with which the subject is invested. In the year 1832, while the cholera was raging in the cities, those who died of the epidemic were sometimes buried with indecent haste and lack of ceremony which, under other circumstnces, the public would not have tolerated. Late one afternoon an honest citizen was just sitting down to dinner, and preparing to rest after the fatigue of the day, when his dream of comfort was sud denly interrupted by the ringing of his door bell. He went to the door, and was met by a strange face, which seemed to have some con nection with a dead cart, with the parapherna lia ol hasty burial, which a second glance told him was stationed in front of his dwelling.— The unexpected visitor attempted some apology, but it was impossible to conceal the fact that he had called on unpleasant business—in fact, to transport the master of the house to the nearest cemetery, whose synonym (the place appointed for all living) seemed suddenly to have acqui red an interpretation which was probably never contemplated by the psalmist. The gentleman refused, certainly with some show of reason, to enter the vehicle, at least, be added till after dinner, and returned to discuss that meal with what relish he might. Not long ago, a dead body was taken from the water at Alexandria, Virginia. Having been recognized and claimed by the wife of a citizen as the corpse of her husband, it was du ly borne to the grave, with due solemnity,fol lowed by the widow and children in all the habiliments of woe. Several days passed, when the husband and father whose funeral had late ly been celebrated, suclder.lv returned in the full enjoyment of perfect health. The surprise with which he was greeted, and his own at hearing what had occurred, may be imagined. The sequel of this strange story did not termi nate so happily. The sexton, it seems, had run up a large bill for funeral expenses, which the city authorities refused to allow, and the con sequence was that the man had to pay for his own burial. More recently, at South Boston, a man step ped off'from the old Colony railroad bridge into the water, and was drowned. From papers found on his person it was supjiosed that he was a French boot maker who resided in Philadel phia. A telegraphic dispatch was accordingly sent to his family, informing them of their be. reavement, and asking tor instructions respec ting the disposal of the body. The Boston au thorities received a prompt reply from the re ported dead man, stating that since, according to the best of his belief, he was alive and Well, they might for the present suspend all solicitude about his remains. SINGULAR ELOPEMENT TO BOSTON BY NEW YORKERS. —At an early hour on Friday morn ing the polio- authorities of Boston received a telegraphic <ji.patcf from New York to the ef fect that a young couple had eloped from this city and were on their way to Boston to get un ited in the holy bands of wedlock. The names of the parties wpre stated lobe Jeremiah 11. Hannifin, a young man who keeps the "Amer ican Sailors' Home" in Oliver street, and Eliza J. Farley, a young woman who resides in the same street. The young man is said to he good looking and 22 years of age ; the yourg woman very pretty, and only ]:"> years old. The po lice were immediately on the alert, and on the arrival of the train at Worcester officers War ren and Chase saw a young cotrpl* leave the depot by the rear door whom they suspected to be runaways. Tliey were followed to a hotel j in Lincoln street, where they entered their names as Air. and Airs. Hannifin, and then re tired to a private room. The officers. satisfied that they were on the right scent, proceeded to the apartment and found the young couple upon the point of retiring to rest, after the excitement and fatigue attendant upon their flight. They received the affair very coollv, the young lady simply remarking that if she were out of doors and dressed the otlicers would have to IUU faster than she could to catch her. As soon as they resumed their habiliments they were conducted to the Second ward sta i lion-house, where separate sleeping apai Intents were provided for them. On the way to the station-house, the gay Lothario offered the offi cers SSO tor the lieedom of himself and inamor ata. but the cruel agents of justice refused to listen to the temptation. A dispatch was im mediately sent to the uufeeling "parient" of Ihe "unkimmori nice young gal," and a return dis patch was sent directing the office's to keep the "loviers" in custody until the "cruel parient" i arrived in Boston. The "parient" arrived a bout midnight, and immediately proceeded to visit his erring daughter. The meeting is said to have been a stormy one—the young ladv i swearing constancy to her lover ; but at length she consented to return home. The "cruel parient" relented so far as to promise that when the young lady becomes of age, if the young man continues to behave well, and to ask her hand :n a respectable manner, he can have her ; so after all there will be no need to resort to "a cup of cold poison." The young lady was most frightened at the thought of meeting her mother. She expressed a fear that the old lady would tear her limb from limb.— The lover says lie won't wait but will marry the lady in six months hum the present time, and when next he undertakes the job tie will take measures to prevent any disappointment. I he father of Miss Parley is an officer in the Custom House. The young ladv is now living with her father, hut from what we have heard it would be much better for the parents to per mit the marriage; it would stop the mouths of gossipping neighbors. Hannifin is an industri ous young man, and lias an income sufficient to support a wife. It was the intention of the runaways to have gone to the British provinces, had they not been arrested.—.V. \. l'olict Ga zette. INVITED TO A CIZZARD FEAST. Know Nothing editors, if they can boast of no other qualities, can at least "brag" on being possessed ot a good stock of impudence. The appeals they are now making to the old line I Whigs <or aid, is as amusing as it is heartless and impudent. But a few months since, Sain was in ins glory, and the editors in his interest were kept busy chronicling Know Nothing vic- I tones. The chatacler of this desperate faction and the objects ol its leaders had not been divul ged, and the people, lor a short time, were in duced to put faith in Sum and his minions.— But in every State and every county where Know Nothingism has teen tried, it has been condemned and repudiated. Sam's victorious legions have been routed on every field, of late, and the Democracy of the country for a time under a cloud—are again in the ascendant, and in most of the States are stronger than ever.— That the old line Whigs, we sav, have contri buted, in many instances, to aid the Democrat ic party, and thus crush out the fell spirit of big ! otry and intolerance, is well known and grate fully acknowledged. Because the old line Whigs have pursued this | course—because, leelmg themselves as a party helpless and powerless—they have aided the Democratic Party rather than Know Nothiug ism, they are abused anil flatleirdin turns, by lire papers ot (hp Know Nothing party. We have two papers ot that faction now before us. Number one contains a most violent attack up on the old line Whigs, stigmatizing them "trai tors," "renegades," "apostates," Xc. Number ; two contains a whining leader, and the editor must have had tears in his eyes when he wrote the article. He appeals to the old line Whigs for aid—and reminds them that one of their number is on the "I'nion State Ticket," and must receive the Know Nothing and Abolition vote if he desires to make a show for an elec tion. He coaxes and flatters and whimpers like a school boy about to receive a thrashing. But, w ill the old line Whigs heed these threats and appeals ? We opine not. Thes- men will have no candidates of their own to vote for this fall, and have a perfect right to support who they please, and certainly they have too much gi it and pride of character to vote for the men who murdered the Whig party. They will not, we fee] satisfied, accept the invitation now giv en them by the Know Nothings, who, not very long ago, boasted that their party had arisen from the ruins of the old parties, and scouted the Whig party as dead beyond the hope of resurrection. A pretty invitation, truly Whigs invited to a buzzard's feast tohelprievour the carcass of the Whig party, and swallow down the remnant ot it bv amalgamation with Know Nothingism—all of which intended lor the exclusive benefit ofthe secret order. Whigs . asked to justify the murder of their party ! asked to forget and forgive the maledictions they have endured for it, and invited into a coalition to be swayed and governed by the midnight assassins who despatched their fust and only political love ! Will the Whigs of Pennsylvania partake of such a least? Will i they soil their garments by a connection with ! the party they have so much and so justlv ab- ! horred—not merely for the purpose of defeat ing the Democracy, as the invitation reads—hut that the reckless oath-bound conspirations may again triumph over the lriends ot religious tol erance, of political equality, and of the Consti tution and laws of our common country ?— Car- ! lisle Volunteer. PASSENGERS TAKEN BY WEIGHT IN LONDON. —Jos. Limpus, the driver of an Isleworth om nibus, was summoned to Guildhall for refusing to take the complainant into his omnibus. The complainant, Mr. Edwaid White, a surgeon, residing at 78 Lamb's Conduit street, said he hailed the defendant in Fleet str. et on Tuesday, and although there was plenty of room, the de fendant would not take him up, but called out, "We don't want people of your weight." The defence was that the complainant's proportions were so exceedingly large, that an omnibus driver was justified in refusing to carry him. 1 he Act of Parliament prescribes 16 inches for each person, hut if there were many such as the complainant, it would be impossible li>r an omnibui to carry its proper number, and the public would be greatly inconvenienced.
