The e-ti!*>r it evidently at a loos to determine whether be thicks the event will protract the ?lifting war or hasten its conclusion He gives reason* whj it may have the latter, as well as the former effect. Of the late Emperor, per eonally. the editor *sy??we think with great truth . 41 The Emperor Nicholas may be regarded, perhapa. as the grei'.eat sovereign of modern time*, and few have filled a wider space in the history of the world. With an empire extend ing from t!ie Baltio to Behring'e 3'rait*. he ruled twu.thirds of the cireumfercoce of the habitable globe, and over all tbo?e vast terri tories and rasee he was knrwn and felt. Throughout tha* iuncenae region he might be Slid to toe, in every sense, ? the State.' He w<> identified ?Uh all its interests, moral, eoeial, pr'it'cal, and religious He knew ?eery thing inspired every thing, directed every thing, controlled aud ?Uprrinteiid*i eve.-j thing, military, civil, and ecclesiastical. It is rot to be wocdere i at that, to *ueh a la bor of thirty years duration, even hiseolossal frame and strong brain shou'd at last yield and succumb With the genius of the Great Frederick in administrative capacity, he had almost the genius of Nspoleou for war.

ANsw Acqcibito!*?ltossia.n Avituci ? A singular piece of diplomatio news appears in th?

The Probability of the War ?The new* of tha death of Nicholas oame like a clap of thunder, ye* erd%y afternoon, upon the publie mea of alt nations now in Wmifogton. As they are gentlemen who may fairly be pra turned to have better means of lorming correct *iewa of the probable politisal ef?otc? ka event then (a? a clas<) any others in our fioun try, we have labored to acq ire an insight into their opinion? on It. at d we And that, with great unanimity, they are of the impref ?ion that England w 11 offjr terms cf peace more favorable than those she lately declared to be her ultimatum, alleging that as her quarrel was with Nicholas personally, rather than Russia, she oar come to a settlement with the new government on terms to which she could not agrse wih Nicholas as her antago nist without a forfeiture ot something of her national dignity. It is not thought among those to whom we refer above that the new Emperor oan cr will recede an iota from the demands of his late father. Nicholas could have done so, inas much as he had fairly won the entire confi dence of his people, with whom the war, with all its consequences, is far mora popular than even our revolutionary war was when it was being fought. The weight of his influence would have carried him through in sacrificing what is conceived in Russia to be points of national honor. Not so, howover, with the P:\cce who succeeds him llis jolicy is to contend, to the bitter end, for all the point? his predecessor claimed. Otherwise, his throne roost be "shakey" from the beginning. We need hardly add, after this explanation, that fe* diplomatists in Washington fancy thai the death of Nicholas will be likely to result in the abatement of any of thi demands cf Russia, in even the most unimportant par ticular A Gallant Achievement?There has been, aod is, much excitement In the Territory cf New Mexico growing out of the Indian m.is sicres and depredations which have been per petrated with impunity, in a great measure for the want of a sufficient military force in that country. Our little army there now however, small as it is, has visited prompt rotribution, in several instance*, upon th< murderous favagts who have been preying upon the heipless and dtfrnceless inhabitant*, without regard to age or sex For tnese dar ing acts of bravery cn the part of our and men, the people of New Mexico manifest the highest approbati >n and gratitude. The recent patera from that Territory refer ia high terms of praise to an expedition under Lieut. 5. D Sturgis, of the 1st drugoons, and bis command. A band of Indians had mur dered a number of men, brutally outraged their women, and then decamped to the moun tains with a large number of stolen animal*, laformation of it received at Santa Fe, at 9 o'clock at night, and at 10 Lieutenant Stui gii and his command were moun'ed and 11 pursuit. In sixty hours, having marched 175 milee, he oarne up with th? Inllans, anc a battle en?ued, m which several of the s?va g*s were kille^, a number wounded, and the remainder rcu'ed. and the whole cf the stolei property recovered 1 he dragoons had ihret men wounded. Such prompt and summary punishment will go far to oheck Indian out. rages. Toe Legislature of New Mexico manifested their gratitude ard appreciation of the achiev ment by parsing a joint i evolution of thanks to Lieutenant Sturgis, and the ci.isens invited him to a public dinner. Deeming the service rendered worthy of a more eubstanti.il ma-k. the Legislature unanimously p?c*ed a resolu tion arking the President to appoint him a major in one of the now regiment*, in whicl tt<e citizens of Santa Fe joined by petition ihe=e documents were not received here be fore the field appointments were mad*. Lieut. S urgis g.aduated at West Point it: 1 1846 and lumeciately joined the army \i i Mexico under General Taylor. Oa the da; ? preceding the battle of Buena Vista, be ac complied tha squadron of dragoons undor Col. May, cn a recornoieaneo. Arriving at a hi^h mountain behind which clouds of dust or smuke were seen rising, and the squadron being unable to afcend, Lieut St irgis volun teered to go himself and reconnoitre, lie amended on horseback, acoompanied by a private until the steepness of the mountain prevented that mode, when ihey dismounted, tied their torsos, and proceeded on ft>or. in many places upon their bands and knees As they reached the summit, & large pirty of Mexicans lying in ambutii, watching the squadron, ruehed upon aud fired at tbem, and their lives were only saved by the Mexican officer in charge. They were taken prisoner* and carried into'ien. Minon's camp and were with his cavalry In the battle of buena Vista prisoners cf war They were exchanged abcu. eight days after the battle. lhe firing of the Mexicans upon Lieut. Sturgis. gave Col. May sufficient Information cf the position of the enemy, and giving Surgia up for lost, he returned, commuoxiaiej the fie"; to General Taylor, who immediately prepared for the great battle, which crowned him, and his gallant army Kith imperishable honor and glory.

A First Bate Notice. The Albany Atlas in noticing the very lac-t political demons'raiion of our fellow-eitixen, Duff Green, takes occasion to present the fol lo*i g funny sjnoj.sicif his political labor* and propensities The "^American" Partt?The Hospital for ?upbra33(jatkd Hacks !?It is said that j tbo ecceutric Mr. Wbitciieid replied to some one ?bo was op osed to lively airs in church music, 4 I do not think the Devil ought to have the best tunes;" so believing that there ia a deep philosophy in popular "dii-content," and thai the maintenance of true religion and pa l trio'ism (by wh eh I mean the maintenance of Evangelh truth, in opposition to popish idjla. try and a preference for our own people and go\ernment over alt ethers) t* be tbe basis of the organization of the American party. I am not willing to surrender that organisation, with the power and infiuenoo which "pbiloso phy," '"true religion" and "patriotism" must rve. into the hand* cf northern fanaticism, for oue. am not willing thus to sArender my birtb.rignt; and I respectfully submit that instead of wasting our energies in a fruitless war upon the Amerioen party, it is much bet ter to unite in tbe movement, and give it a right direction.

TO THE PUBLIC. ON the 12th d?* of Mar h, lfcoV an advertisement tba m\ goo?i>- had been distrained and would b? sold at putdic auction for tent cue George E. Kirk, appeared in the Evening Star. As such an adver u.ement, it unexplained, would have U?e tendency to tnjuie my credit, which is my only fortune, and only means of supporting my family, I make the fol lowing statement: On ihe 1st day of August, 1P54, I entered into an ag ei ment to lease, for five yea a, from Geo. E. Kirk the part of M No. ?, in Squ-ire No 437, and prem ises, tor .3400 |>er annum. Mr. Kirk on his pan aeneing t? furnish a new planing Michuie ana al> its fixtures, at his c st, an bave them finished fully tor use v.fhin two months from said 1st tugut , 18J4. litis .Mr. Kirk failed to do. Tbe said n.a chine wa? not finished and fitter up for use for two months affer the time specified. This was a great loss to me. The planing machine was worth m >re fiar. all tbe machinery on the premises. Mr. Kin further agreed to build a b ick shop on said ground, move ami set all the machinery, and put tnem in gooi running order, at his own cost and ex?>eiis.-. Mr Kirk has entirely failed to perform his part 01 agreement, anu et demanded of me the payment of the tu!l rent of $400 p-r annum, for a 11 old shop without root or glas- in the windows, or shutters to keep out the cold. It is impossible for a-j one to work in the sin pin r-<iny wea her, or to keep any thing dry A man cannot carry on business 111 the ? hop in its present condition. I think when Mr. K weighs the muter well in his mind his conscience wtll not let him charge: me as much r> nt for an old shop that is in a manner worth nothing, as I have had to pay for a new one. if Mr K. had demanded of me a small and just rent, I would have settled i? with him, notwithstanding the failure to comply with hi* agreement.
