Tbe correspondence sent to the House to-day, touching the arrest of Johu □. Surratt, covets about onehtmdred foolscap page*. It establishes, conclusively, (hat the State Department has lirown Furratt’s whereabouts since early last May, thus verifying the assertion made by Gov ernor BontwelL Tbe correspondence Includes letters from Consol General Poiter, of Montreal, our Consul at Liverpool, Ministers King, Marsh nnd Harvey, Consul General Hale, of Egypt, ic. It appears from the papers that Surratt spent some time, after the assassination. In Canada, at Three Hirers, being protect ed by the Catholic denomination, though It 5* not known that hla identity was known to th'm. Thence he wenn to Londonderry, lieland, and w es for a while In the Catholic oratory of that city, leaving there lor Home cany in the present year. At Rome he enlisted in the Papal Zouaves, serving in that body until arrested In November. Tbe correspondence ahpwaUtat the Government has the names of various vessels in which be sail ed from point to point, and ccnmaUv a tolerably mil account of hla Jontneyings, and disasters. Among tbe pipers is a statement from a person (name withheld) who crossed the Atlantic wl-h him. and who communicates tnroogh the Consul si Liverpool. Sunatt was then pass ing under the nams of Macarty. He adml’ted to this witness that Booth and himself originated the assassination eonspkacy. and intimated, with out actually saying so. tnat Jeffi Davis is privy thereto. Be claimed that be was in New York tbe night tbe murder was committed, on his way to Canada. He owned to making frequent trips between Richmond, Washington and Canada, and sa.d his bnrincas was well known to mauv per sons is Richmond. He expressed great satisfac tion at the death ol Lincoln. DU hair a: d tvhUVcn were dyed, and be seemed plcnlilatly suppled with money, ills general appearance was so changed list it was almost impossible to recognize him, and although the Consul at Liverpool knew his exact Whereabouts while in England, he slipped away l-efare his identity could be established. Such observation bad been kept of his actions that It waa knom on the day be slipped that he was Bound for Home, Minister King was properly advised. The story of his IdeullflcaUon and arrest in Italy Is very interesting, it appears that on tbe Sid of April, a man whose name is also with held, called on Mr. King and staled that he bad known Surratt in Washington and Maryland, and that he was (ben under the name of John Waason, serving In ibe Papal Zouaves. Tbe Minister waa surprised, and at first could hardly believe the story. His informant was closely questioned, however, and Mr. King final ly concluded that be was telling the truth. Tbe report waa sent to 31r. Seward, and a long corres pondence between Messrs. Seward, Hale, Stanton and King followed. The fall eUletncut ofthe wit ness was Uken down, showing that he had been a school teacher in Prince George County, Maryland: that be knew Surratt Welchman, Sin. Surratt and others of that arcle, and that he was well informed relative to ail Sur ratt's afiairs. He said Surratt had told him ofthe conspiracy; had admitted bis mother's gnilL had expressed satisfaction at Lincoln's murder, had given him to understand that Davis was impli cated. and had expressed his purpose to return to New York in a year or two. A photoeraph of Surratt was cent from this country, and Mr. King employed a discreet person to compare his fea tures with those of the Papal soldier, and the identity of Surratt, then passing u Watson, was thus Sully established* *v Two or tnree interviews had taken place between Mr. King and Cardinal Anlonclli, and tbe Car dinal was fully informed of Ur. King's knowledge, suspicions and plans. We hare no Extradition Treaty with the Pope, and could not therefore de mand Surratt, Orders were, however, given by tbe Cardinal, while the investigation was going on, that neither tbe criminal nor tbe witness, who was also in the Papal service, should be dis charged without specific directions. Ur. Kin g, by Mr. Seward’s instructions, asked if Surratt would he dcliveied up on the proper inoictaent and proof, and be was promptly answered in the affirmative. The Cardinal seems trom the begin ning to have moat promptly seconded the efforts of our Government in the matter, and be hlmsclt ordered the arrest of Surratt, as soon as his Iden tity bad been fully established and the necessary legal steps had b en taken. The fact of his arrest and escape from a guard of six men U already known. The ortera of the Papal authorities, and the regular reports of the Papa) military officers touch matter, are included in the correspondence. The Cardinal ■expressed great' regret Surratt's escape. The most vigilant efiurta were at once resorted to for bis re-arrest. He was traced to a hospital at Sara, and thence to Naples, passing in the lat ter city under the name of Walters, lie escaped from Naples before he could be arrested. The authorities knew he had taken the steamer for Alexandria, and the necessary information ami suggestions were at once sent to Consul General Sale. Assistant Naval Secretary Fox had reached Rome about this time, and be and Mr. King sent word to Admiral Goldsboro ugh, through Minister Harvey at Lisbon, to despatch one of hli vessels of wsr into the Eastern Mediterranean, ' Mr. Dale cfiecied Surrau’s arrest, as soon as the I vessel on which be sailed from Naples reached I Alexandria, and at occe advised .-Mr. Seward. ! Orders were sent to Admiral Ooldshorough, hy Secretary Welles, ard Mr. Uale'a coons was ap i proved by the Secretary o( Sute, who directed - bun to deliver Surratt to the Captain of our war i ytsrel. lt Is expected that he will soon be on bis way to 1 this country. Tbe person who gave information i that he was in tbe Papal service ha* been released 1 fro ox that body, and will also come to this ! country as a witness against Surratt. Some ; comment is made among those who have seen the correspondence, by one remark made by Surratt j on his arrival in England. It was that be hoped 1 to live long chough to be able to give a good ac count ofTreeldent Johnson. Everybody is ask ! lug what this observation meant, i [Tothe Western A-ioclated Pres*.] i Wabsxbctob. December 10.

Under date of Liverpool, 25d September, Mr. i Wilding Informs Mr. Seward that Surratt Lad ar l rived, or was expected to arrive, in that ciiy.
