Miscellaneous News at the Capital, Special Disvateh to The Chicago Tribune, TUB DROWN PARDON. Washington, D. 0., April 4.—Samuol Randall was informed by tho Attomoy-Gonoral, to-day, that ho could not have access to tho records of tho Department of Justice for tho purpose of Booing what papers woro filed to induce tho President to pardon Brown, tho Philadelphia re peater. Tho refusal was placed on the ground that the pardoning power of tho President under tho Constitution won a personal prerogative, not subject to bo called in question, either by Con gress or tho people. This would indicate that the Attornoy-Oonoral and tho President intend to pay no attention to tho resolutions, which passed tho House, calling for information in this somewhat notorious cdbo. SECRETARY SUMNER. Ah might have boon expected, thoro Is no truth in tho story which was given currency in Boston, to tho effect that Senator Sumner had declared that bo would novor again sot foot on Massachusetts soil until tho Legislature of that Stato had rescinded tho resolutions of consuro for his course on tho battle-flag question in tho Senate. Mr. Sumnor will visit Massachusetts in June, if his health permits. Had his physical condition warranted it, ho would faavo made ono of his groat speeches at tho last session, in de fense of his erasure resolution. His course in this matter has boon entirely consistent, dating back to tho timo when tho rebellion was in prog ress. Ho proposes to bo hoard from in this ai rootion at tho noxt session. IMPORTS FROM CANADA, Tbo refusal of tho Senate- at its Inst extra ses sion to consider other than executive business, prevented Senator Morton’s elaborate speech in behalf of his resolution, instructing the Secre tary of the Treasury to furnish a report to tho Sonato, showing tho amount of imports from tho Provinces comprising the Dominion of Canada, to tho United States, for tho years 1871 and 1873, and tho amount of exports to tho same Provinces from tho United States for tho same years, and tho amount of imports and exports between tho United States and tho same Provinces for tho two years preceding the termination of tho Reciprocity Treaty. Hu speech will bo a strong effort in behalf of annex ation. showing its commercial importance to the Canadians, and tho political advantages to bo derived by tho United States. It is tho intention of tho Senator to deliver this speech during tho summer, in order that tho suggestions in this di rection may bo brought practically before tho people of tue two countries interested. BROTHER HARLAN. Ex-Senator Harlan has tho hardihood to deny, in bis paper, to-day, that ho over appeared be fore thoCommissionorof Internal Revenue as an attorney in behalf of the Now York Central Rail road. Ho says nothing, however, as to his attempts to influence tho President and tho Secretary of tho Treasury in* this matter. Coupled with this Btfttemont in a dofoDßo of tbo Company from its liability to pay tho tax, ou tho ground that tho tax was levied as an increase, caused by matured stock, and not a legitimate dividend.

Groan Criminal Carelessness—A Pas senger f'raln Ran Into by a Con struction '.Train—Other Casualties. St. Louis, April 4. —It appears that tho rail road aooidont which occurred at Frouch Village, ou tho St. Louis 6c, Southern Railroad, yostor day afternoon, was occasioned by tho oulpoblo carelessness of tho conductor of tuo construction train. A passenger train was just about to take a eldo track, to lot a freight train paae, when the contraction train, which had been passed by the passenger train at a dirt-pile but a few min* utos before (and its conductor must have known of its proximity), camo thun dering round a curve at a high speed and plunged into the roar passenger coach. The conductor of the passenger train saw the construction train and*cried out to the pas sengers to “ lump for their lives.'’ Many did so. but before all could escape the engine of the dirt train entered a passenger coach, and, being smashed by the collision, the passenger oar was • Immediately tilled with steam, and a number of passengers mere or loss scalded. Mrs. John B. Lusk, or Luke, of Morgan County, Mo., while in the act of jumping from the train, was caught be tween the cars and crushed to death. Her hus band, with an infant in his arms, succeeded in reaching the platform unhurt. A gentleman, supposed to be James 11. Watts, of Chester, 111., an ox-momhor of the Illinois Legislature, was caught between the platform of the roar oar and tho engine of the dirt-train and literally tom to pieces. A young daughter of Mrs. Qrifilu. of MoLoansboro, received a jet of steam full In tho face, and was horribly scutdod about the hood and the upper part of the body, lior eyes wore put out, and it is thought that she cannot survive. Mrs. Bobbins, of Milwaukee, Win., was se riously out and bruised about tbo head, and sev eral other passengers wore more or loss injured. Tbo engineer of tbo dirt-train, Michael Fan ning, Hod as soon as he saw the result of his carelessness. Coroner Kyau hold an inquest on the bodied of tho throe kflled, to-day, and the Jury, after examining most of tho employes of tho trains, several passengers and ameers of tho road, re turned a verdict that conductor Michael Ward and engineer John Canning, of the construction train, wero grossly and culpably negligent in starting ahead of time and running at too great a speed. They also censure the conductor of the passenger train for not flagging tho construc tion train, aud ohloors of the road for not in CHICAGO, SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1873. forming tho conductor of tho freight train of of tho discontinuance of certain trains, thereby detaining his train and occasioning tho accident John Fanning, engineer of tho construction train that ran into tho passongor train at Frouoh Village, yostorday, was arrested to-day and is now in Jail at Belleville. Efforts aro being made to find Ward, tho conductor of tho train, but so far ho has eluded tho officers, Halifax, N. 8., April 4.—Tho agents of tho Whito Star Lino, while going to tho Atlantic from Now York, had a narrow escape last night. Tho train on wliioh they woro camo in collision with a freight train, killing the engineer and haggago mastor of tho passenger train. THE MODOCS. Captain Jack’s luaolcncc—Ho Wants to JBo Lot Alone—Peace or War Not Tot Determined* San Francisco, April 4.—A dispatch from Yroka, to-night, dated March 27, says: Throe hundred troops broko camp and marched to tho upper end of Little Klamath Lake. At tho lava bed, tho Indians refused to come out to talk that day, but promised to come the next Sunday. On March 22, tho Hooker Jim party was soon at Alkali Lake, whore the party corralled seventy five horses. On tho following Tuesday, tho same Indians woro booii uu lUuXuLuu* ituDurvnUuu, wnoro they, talked all night, tho Modoos and Klamaths urg ing them to join Copt. Jack. Hooker Jim said that flvo tribes of Indians wore ready to join Jack whenever ho would got out of tho lava bod, and told tho Bosorvatioulndians that it would not bo safe for thorn to remain friendly to the whites. During tho night, ho sent two squaws to tho white man, Jordan, with money to pur chase powder. Ho refused to sell any to them. Tho people at Sprague lUvor ore greatly excited, leaving tho country. Tho noservatlon Modocs and Klamaths ore also seriously alarmed. Tho citizens near Goose Lake petition tho Governor of Oregon for protection. On April 28, tho Peace Commissioners haad talk with* tho Modocs, who made the same old speeches; refuse the proposition of removal: want to bo lot alone and have the troops sent away. Jock, in an insolent and overbearing manner, said bo .hod already stated bis tonus. Ho know no other country, and would go to no other. Scboncbln's speech was to tho same pur pose. Col. Mason's command was ordorod to movo at once to oamp two miles, opposite Jack's cave. Probably ton more days will elapse before peace or war Is determined upon. Maj. Mason, of the Twenty-first Infantry, commands tho troops on tbo oast side of Tulo Lake. To-mor row, two companies of tho. Twelfth Infantry go to camp at tbo lava bod, at tho foot of tho blulfs trader command of Maj. Oroeu.

Tho troops will mako no aggressive movement till the Commission gets through their work. On April 2, the troops at Van Bremers broko camp and marched to tbo southeast corner of Little Klamath Lako to tho bluff overlooking Jacks stronghold, before night all arrived safely at the foot of the bluffs, and the camp waa fired. In tho meantime the anuaw Matilda was sent with a message from the Commissioners, half a mile away. The squaw met Boston Charley con cealed. He wont back to her camp, directly* to quarters. Tho Commissioners remained till sunset, and ho returned with Jacks, with a message from tho Commissioners. Tho purport of tho message is unknown, as everything is now withhold from representatives of tho prose. This morning Boston Charley and Bogus Charley oamo hook to Conby and the Commissioners went out to moot Jack again, a milo beyond the picket lino. Not one was permitted to accompany thorn. . Tho Modoca sat four hours talking under rf pelting rain. They then returned to oamp. The squaws gave the only informatlon übouc council.

A report is received by tho officers that the Modocs intend making tho first attack on tho troops. In consequence, tho pickets are doubled, and company commanders arfin ordered. to hold themselves m readiness to enemy at any moment. DISGRACEFUL. Blow for Blow on the Floor ef the New Jersey Legislature—A Jersey Senator Arrested, Charged with Bribery and Corruption* Trenton, N. J., April 4.—A disgraceful fight took ploco this morning in tbo lobby of tbo Houso. Yesterday, in a debate, Mr. Carso called James M. Scovill “a perjured man,” and “a scoundrel,” and when Mr. Colo and John Hood, members, met this morning they engaged in a war of words. Scovill came up, and, mixing in the quarrel, Colo called him “a liar,” and was immediately knocked down by Scovill. Tbo Speaker ordered all the doors to bo closed, but before it could be dono Carso- rushed into the fight, and Scovill knocked him down also,-and be was badly punished, it. is said, while bo was down.

Political* THE LOST ATLANTIC. Investigation of tho Disaster by tbc Canadian Authorities To-Day, Searching for the Drowned— Recovery of Numer ous Bodies. Personnel of Capt. Williams—Relief for the Sufferers. PERSONNEL OF OAPT. WILLIAMS. During tbo present excitement with regard to the loss of the ’White Star steamship Atlantic, anything that la connected with this dreadful occurrence, however remotely, must bo of inter est. The revelations, if such they are, made by the oflloon nud passengers of the ill-fated ship, reflect very strongly upon the courage and soubo of Capt. Williams, her commander. A reporter yesterday visited a gentleman in this city, Mr. A. 0. Thomas, who crossed from Liver pool to Now York on the Atlantic on the last westward trip of this steamer, leaving Liverpool on Fob. 13, and arriving in Now York on Fob. 27. Mr. Thomas describes Capt. Williams ns a man slightly loss than half a century old, a pleasant, - jolly sort of a man, and an excellent seaman. Ho appeared to know all about his business and though the passage was according to the log, a very rough ouo, and only two opportunities woro given for ranking obser vations, the reckoning showed that tho vessel had. made 8,041 miles, or 27 onlvm excess of a direct lino .utuough, like nearly every Beamnuj Capt. Williams was not averse to an occasional glass, ho novor drank to excess. This was es pecially observable on tho celebration of Wash ington’s Birthday, on board tho steamer, when the Captain drank his champagne, as did the others, but notably drank very Utile. Tho only thing in Capt. WilUama’behavior that did not appear consistent with tho officer's posi tion in Mr. Thomas' judgment was his familiar manner with tho passengers. Ho was novor un pleasantly so, hut his manner was not that of a naval officer. As a matter of fact, nobody over looks for solemn dignity on tho part of a Captain of a Trans-Atl&ntio liner, it being almost one of tho qualifications of a commander to draw pat ronage by his social qualities, and houoo tho effort to obtain popularity by an oven good na ture and jolUty is studied os closely by a sea captain as an hotel clerk. Capt. WilUams sailed tbo steamer Colorado, of tho WilUams & Quion Lino, for ton years, and was Commodore of tho fleet. His discharge on tho ground of incompotonoy has boon men tioned by his former employers, but Mr. Thomas assured a reporter that this statement, ho has reasons to know, was without foundation in foot. Tho cause of his leaving tho line was Ul hoalth, and ho was for nearly one year incapaci tated from duty. On his recovery tho white Star Lino offered him a more Üboral allowance than ho had previously received. Ho was in tho habit of boosting that ho had landed COO,001) per sons on shore, and had novor lost ouo by aooident. The steamer Colorado whioh ho saUod for ton years was sunk by his successor in tho Mersey, very soon after ho loft her. Tho agonts in this city declare that tho Atlan tic can bo raised and repaired. The sudden sink ing of tho vessel is attributed to tho destruction of nearly all of the water-tight compartments by her striking four times on tho rooks beneath her, hor stern being uninjured.

DESCRIPTION OF THE COAST WHERE THE DISASTER OCCURRED. From the Few York Timet, The disaster of the Atlantic renders a descrip tion of tho coast whore tho wreck occurred a ne cessity in order that, the reader may gain a more comprehensive idea of lln peculiarities. Halifax harbor, for which tho Atlantic was making at tho time of her wreck, is considered to be one of the finest in British America. It lies about 120 miles westward of Cape Oanso, and 113 miles eastward of Cape Sablo. It is easy of approach, and quite accessible during all seasons of tbo year, being large enough to accommodate a large num ber of vessels in perfect safety. Its direction is nearly north and south, and about 14 miles long, tho channel being nowhere lose than half a mile broad, nor under 6 fathoms in depth. Tho land about the harbor and a little southward of it is rugged and rocky in appearance. Although somewhat bold in its outlines, the land is not high, except ing tbo highlands of Lo Havo and Aspatagoon, which have boon soon,.in clear weather at a dis tance. of nino leagues, or twenty-seven miles. The official sailing directions to pilots and mas ters stato that when Aspatageou Island, which has a long level appearance, bears north, at a distance of six leagues, an oast-northoast-half oast course will carry a vessel to Sombro Light house. Tho entrance to Halifax harbor is between Ohobucto Hood and Bumbro Island on tbo west, with Devil and Macnab Islands on tbo east. Sambro Island is small and rooky, and lies about four miles southwest of Chouuoto Hoad, being surrounded by a multitude of shoals and rocks, which aro known on tho charts os the Sombro lodges. There are several deep-water passages, but they are too intricate for a sailor to attempt, so that vessels without pilots aro cautioned to give tho island a berth of at least throe miles. Sambro Island has a white octagyu light-house upon the middle of it, tho tower be ing GO foot high. It shows a fixed light 116 feet above tbo level of tho sea. which is visible at a distance of twenty or twonty-ouo miles. It. was this light that tho Atlantic was making for when she struck. In the sailing directions to naviga tors, it is stated that in thick or foggy weather, ships firing signal guns will receive an answer from the signal station of two guns in quick suc cession, and that tho same reply would bo made from tho island at tho sound or a steamer’s whistle. Devil Island lies close off Hartland Point, and. like Sambro, is small and rooky, blit is connected with tho main land by a flat stretch, which is nearly dry at low tide. On tho southern end of Devil Island, there is also a fixed rod light, which is shown at tho height of forty-five foot above high water, and is visible about eight miles. Maonab, or Cornwallis. Island, forms tho eastern side of tho channel into tho harbor, and, liko Devil, is connected with tho shore by a Hat of from eight to twelve foot. Extending from about tho middle of ilia waolam sid* of Maonab Island occurs what is known as Maughor Beach, being a gravel split about half & mile in length. Near tho extremity of this beach there Is another fixed light which is shown at tho height of fifty-eight feet above the sea, visible ton miles. On the south end of tho island, another shoal, about one and a quarter miles iu length, extends to tho southward. Southward of, and under Sandwich Point, tho western point of the harbor, lies Mars Bock, dis tant nearly half a mile from tho laud, its easterly edge being marked by a buoy. Besides these shoals and rocks, there are several others of similar character. Tho sailing directions, in describing tho rooky promontory of Ohobucto. state that to tho southwostward of, and around Snmbro Island, are numerous rooks and shoals, which must always bo carefully approached, and adds, that the assistance of local knowledge is absolutely necessary to enable a vessel to sail among those dangers. Tho entire lino of tho coast from Halifax west ward to Margaret Bay la of a very rooky charac ter, with numerous inlets, tho shore being steep to and bounded with white rooky cliffs. Tho highlands of Aspatagoou, on tho coast side of Mahono Bay, ore remarkable; and proceeding eastward from Mahono Bay, the rooks which surround the shore are black, with hero and there some banks of rod earth. Between Capo Lo Have, which is a remarkable promontory 107 foot above the sea. bald on tho top, with a rod bank under it facing tho ( south westward, and Port Metway, there are some hummocks inland, about which from tho sea the country has tho appearance of being low and level, and, on the shore, white rook and stony beaches,' with several low rugged points. Thouco to Bhelburue Harbor tho land is wooded. Near the entrance of Port Lalour, and within land are several barren spots, which from tho ofling, are easily discerned; thence to Cape Gable, the land appears level and low, and on tho shore are some cliffs of exceedingly white sand, particu larly at tho entrance of Port Latour, and at Capo Sable, where they appear to bo very conspicuous from the sea. ° Mars Head, the extreme point of Proepoot Capo, is a rooky, peninsular cape, 'seventy feet NUMBER 229. high, And forma tho western limit of Pennant Bay, tbo entranco to which is three mlloa wido aqu about two miles deep. -Thia littlo bay *.tf Tory much onoumbored with rooky shoals ann irregularly-shaped islands, but It froquontly affords shelter to coasting vessels, whoso mas* tors are thoroughly acquainted with the passage botwoon them. Tho land at tho hood of tho bay is moderately high, tho highest point, called Hospital Hill, rising * fully. 250 foot obovo ih« lovol of the soa. A mile and three-quarters from -Kars Hoad lioa Betty Island, which Attains an elevation of ninety-two foot. Southeast Shoal, with two and throo-fourtlis fathoms water, lies nearly in tho centre of tho channel botwoon Betty Island and Kars Hood. Frospoot Harbor is dls tant from tho Hoad about two and one-half miles, in a northerly direction. Tho anchorage is good on tho eastern Shore of Prospect lllvor, Inside of Heron Island, and, although there aro dangers off tho harbor, thoy can bo easily avoided whan once tho islands have boon identified. Pennant Bay. west of Sambro Harbor, lies botwoon Pen nant Point and Mors Hoad. Margaret Bay is a splendid shoot of water, nearly twenty-five miles in circumference, having a depth of nine. miles, tho entrance being more than two mllos wide. Compared with other por tions of this coast tbo bay is unusually clear of dangers. Tho water in it is deep, and in various fmrts there aro harbors capable of receiving the argost vonsols, which may froquontly lie close to the shore. WALL STREET.
