EVENING STAR. W A SHI16T01 CIT T : TUESDAY April 19,1966. |fT* Advertisement* should be handed in by IS o'clock, m , otherwise they may not appear until the neat day. 8PIEIT 07 THE MORNING PES8B. The Intelligencer, to-day, contains a letter from General James Watson Webb to substaa tiate the previously published declaration of Rer. Cbas. S. Stewart, that Louis Napoleon, when in this country, was a rery exemplary man in his oonduet. It seems, from the Gen eral's column, that he was at that time on about such terms with the d;stinguished exile as not long since with Clary?my Lord Clar endon. On the whole, the General seems to be after killing two birds with one stone-af ter glorifying the Emperor of the French a little, and himself very much. So the world goes. The Union regards yesterday's action in the Senate upon the affidavit of Col. Jas. H Lane and his second effort to obtain action on the memorial of the mock Legislature of Kan ?as, as another Senatorial rebuke of the Re publicans. Tu Eholish Opbra.?" La Somnambula" was performed in fine style last night at the National, as the large audience testified by repeated and enthusiastic applause. Indeed, the audience was wrought up to that pitch of delight and enthusiasm that at the end of the second act Miss Pyne and Mr. Harrison were called out with a vociferousness that partook more of the Old-World mercurial temperament than of our own matter-of fact American au diences. The incident was satisfactory evi dence, however, if such were wanting, of tbe transcendant capabilities of the artiste s who could work up the phlegmatic American tem perament to such enthsiasm. The parts ware remarkably well rendered throughout; and we most not forget to men tion thi satisfactory manner in which Miss Fannie Morant, who took the part at short no tice, sustained the character of M Lisa." To-night, will be given, in the same superb style, Auber's opera of " Tbe Crown Dia monds," in which Miss Leuisa Pyne sings her exquisite song of " The iky Lark," and also 41 Rode's Air and Variations.'' We congratulate tbe management of tbe National upon the success which has attended their efforts to put English upera before the Washington public in such unexceptionable style. Paaoni To-Niqht.?The demand for tickets to hear this great cantatrice is, we learn, likely to infinitely exceed the supply, which is the more to be regretted inasmuch as the nature of her engagements forbid more than one concert in this eity. Those who are so lucky as to obtain tickets can congratulate themselves accordingly. She sings tc-nigbt, La Marseillaise, in which she created such a sensation In New Orleans. The Delta says: " The first verse thrilled through tbe en tire audience. Dead silence, tbe bush of awe, pervaded the hall until its close, and then tbe feelings of tbe assemblage broke forth in a Krfect rapture of applause. There were some arts there which bad felt the power of tbe hymn in the revolutionary era of 184S, and they must have throbbed quickly with the recollections of splendid hopes which have vanished, orowding upon them thick and fast. " But it was the third verse which crowned the triumph of tbe artiste, and tbe wild cry (the liberte' hberte chine) shot home to every soul, telling of boundless love and yet of il limitable vengeance. With flashing eye and flushed features, with the expanding aspect of an inspired Pythoness, tbe atir armut was cUanMU aiid ruug through tbe hall like the appealing shriek of a nation to her sons Tbe effect was indescribable. It has never been paralleled within our remembrance in New Orleans." WASHINGTON HEW8 AND G088IF The Burglar* ?Our talented neighbor la bored through a column yesterday to exten uate the many crimes of the gang of Wash ington burglars and incendiaries whose re cent arrest and exposure have given so much joy to all whose lives and property are at the mercy of such midnight operations as theirs Our Ingenuous neighbor argues that, after all, there are other bad people in the world ; and that in view of that fact it is not fair to think ao very hard of these seoundrels. Such is the drift of his pleas in their favor. It, of course, repeats its accusations against tbe friends of the present Administration, whom it is con stantly denouncing as no better than burglars, Ac. Its " cotemporary " comes in for bis due ?hare of our truthful neighbor's Accusations, which he is quite willing to stand so leng as they are but the characteristic roorbacks of a common liar, as we have often proved ourtal ented neighbor to be, whose system is known to be one of personal slander of all of whom he is envious, or with whom he differs in politic*. Detraction from him being praise, we thank him for it, so far as we are ooncerned, and in the mean time take occasion to remind him that he is overlooking the fact that the matter concerning the unauthorised offer to sell for 910,600 the votes of the American party in tbe House, to secure the election of the Dein- I oeratic nominee for Houso printer, stands proven. We can have no personal controversy with our amiable and ingenuous neighbor none whatever?the game not being worth the candle. We have, however, to assure him that we are glad to hear that Wkshington Nay lor is no longer the Vice-President of the American party ooancil for the Second Ward of this eity. It matters not whether Nay lor was deposed on Saturday or Friday night last, or at any time within the last month or two, we rejoice that the Americsn party of this city no longer have him for one of their high officials. We believe the rules of tbe organisation likely to create facilities for the organisation and operation of just such bands of robbers and incendiaries as that of Washington Naylor We have time and again enforced this view of the tendency of secret political bodies, and deemed it oar duty, on Saturday, to call the attention of our readers to the fact of Naylor's prominent position in the Second Ward coun cil, and of his participation and that of all his gang of incendiaries and burglars in the pat riotic work of destroying the Pope's stone, as a warning against tbe tendency of secret po litical societies when bad men get into them, as they can hardly fail to do. We are glad to know that Naylor and his gang are as universally oondemned by onr Know Nothing jfcllow citisens, save and exoept the Organ concern. u by their political op ponents. The coterie our talented, ingen uous and truthful neigu^O* alone, of all Washington, seek to extenuate ?tbeir many crimes; some thirteen burglaries and ^ve cases of arson having already been traced to I their door. About the time of the last Vlr | ginia and Washington elections we bad fre quently to call publio attention to the ooterie of the Organ concern, whose ohieftain wa? this same Washington Naylor, and whose lieutenants were our talented neighbor's friends who now lay in the Washington jail. They, and suoh men, were the parties who prevented Henry A Wis# from speaking in front of Brown's koiel. As the Organ defended them on that ooca sion, so it stands as squarely as possible up to them on this oocasion. Vide, the mincing announcement of their arrest, which we copy below from its issue of Friday last, wherein it will be peroeived that a fellow feeling or some unexplained influence induces our public spir ited neighbor to " pooh, pooh," their many monstrous crimes, which were well kn)wn to him at the time; for he, himself, wrote the dis graceful extenuating artitle. The only com ment we hare to make on his failure to do his duty to this community by properly charac terising the crimes of these villains with whom he so evidently sympathizes, is what every honest man and reputable citiien of every party oannot fail to comprehend at a glanoo. Vis: that there can be little difference in point of prinoiple between his " Messrs Naylor, Ray, and Crogan," and the conductor of a press that essays to smooth over their many burglaries and arsons in our midst, as is done in the announcement of the arrest of his friends, which we copy from the Organ's columns, as follows: "Diacoviar of Stolbh Qooas.?Arrest of three persons on a charge of tonnect\on u-xth the thefts.?-For some months past, complaints have been made by merchants and others of the loss of various goods, and in some instan ces of very considerable amounts, several stores having been entered and robbed, be sides many dwellings. "We understand that Messrs. Allen and Mockabee of the Auxiliary Quard, have ar rested three individuals charged with being concerned in some of the robberies above ad verted to, to wit: Messrs. W. Naylor, Henry Crogan, nnd John H Kay. and that upon searching tho premises of Mr. Ray. a large quantity of atolen goods were found, consist ing of tobacco, aegars, gaiter boote, shoes, clocks, pieces of cloth, pantaloons, vests, Irish linen, Carpenters tools, guns, pistols, calicos, and in fact all descriptions of merchandise, to the amount of several hundred dollars, various portions of which have been identified by parties from whom they had been stolen. '?It is estimated that from eight to ten thousand dollars worth of property of such descriptions have been stolen from various persons in Washington city during the last twelve months, and it is believed that most of the stolen property passed through the same channel as the goods now found "There were found in the house of Mr. Ray, with whom it is said Crogon boarded, a bunch of skeleton keys and other implements used by house-breakers and thieves, to the number of twenty or thirty, and the inference is, that a very extensive business had been oarried on by the owners of said implements " The parties were examined before Justice Morsel and Capt. Birch of the city police: whereupon, Messrs. Crogan and Ray were committed to prison. Mr Naylor gave bail for his appearance, and will be examined at 6 p. m. to day." Tha Waahington Navy Yard?We are highly gratified to learn that it is in contem plation by the Government to enlarge the area of the navy yard in tnis oity, by the pur chase of some adjoining squares, if they can be prooured on reasonable terms. The meas ure has been strongly recommended by the ofiJcera of the yard, and estimates for the pur pose have been submitted to Congress by the proper bureau. It is to be hoped that the subject will meet with the favorable consid eration of the committee of that body to which it has been referred. Any one who visited the yard during the last year, while but one vessel was building there, must have been struck with the utter inadequacy of room to carry on the various operations of such an establishment. Almost every foot of ground waa occupied, and at times serious inconve nience was felt for the want of sufficient and convenient room for the landing and deposit of the large quantities of timber and other bulky materials required. The proposed ex tension will remedy this evil at a compara tively small expense, afford ample space for such new buildings as may be necessary, as well as for suitable wharves and doeks with sufficient depth of water, and willetbus place the yard in a fit condition to execute with promptness and facility all the work that may be required in any emergency, and enable it to austain the high reputation it has already established throughout the country for the skill of its mechanics and the superiority of its workmanship.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, the debate on tbe reception of Col. J H Lane's affidavit, and the accompanying petition of the self styled Legislature of the State of Kansas, was continued by Messrs Douglas Butler, Wade. Pugh, Hale, Jones of Xenn., Rusk, Toucey, Wilson, and others. On motion of Mr. Stuart, it was then laid on the table?yeas 30, nays 11 On motion of Mr Yulee, the President's message, communicating information in rela tion to the location of a site for the Govern ment armory in tbe Diatrict of Columbia, was ordered to be printed. And then they adjourned. In the Home, Mr. Washburne, of Me., re ported unfavorably on the petition of Albert Fabre, who contested the seat of Hon. Mr. Eustis, of La , in the House ; report laid on the table. went int0 Committee of the Whole (Mr Stanton in the chair) the defi ciency bill was again taken up and the Sen ate s amendment appropriating $300,000 for the continuation of the work on tbe national (Government) aqueduct waa first in order, fhe pending question waa announced to be CKra:f0rd > ?m?dment to the amend I ment. which was as follows ? " Provided, That the same, together with the amount heretofore paid by Congress shall not exceed the relative ^portion ofthe'v.iue ??r?rna,ent Property, as compared with that belonging to private citizens within the corporate limits of Georgetown and Washin* ton cities." ? Mr.Trippe said that they had already lost $350,000 in the construction of thia aqueduct and rather than stand committed to an illim itable expense he would prefer to aink the en tire amount ao low that not a eopper of it should ever be heard of. He feared they were pursuing a policy which would tend to rendar tbe citizens of Georgetown and Wash ington more deserving the character in which ne had been compelled to look upon them tinnl Jw?%,u tr <*n**?tood that the appropria iin.t i ? n heretofore made for the Ltim^V?n ?f thi* acluedQCt were based upon estimates preeented to Congress by a gentle respects qualified, from his scien Wflg Attainment, oreeent sueh estimates as would secure confidince ^ .\K*4r ; and in the face of hia declaration that $J, 300,000 would be necessary to place tbii work in a state of completion, thej had already made an appropriation of $350,000 towards its construction. If gentlemen voted under standingly at the last session for the appro priations already made, he confessed he saw no reason why they should now draw the purse strings of the Treasury. They were aware of the large amount that had been ex pended in the construction of the public build ings here, and of the danger to whioh they and the archives they contained were exposod from fire for want of a sufficient supply of water. Messrs McMullen and Covode here argued briefly against the Senate's amendment, the former advocating the propriety of putting the work out by contract. Mr. Florence had always been opposed to the contract system, and thought that the ex Strienee of the Government would justify the ouse in refusing any connexion with it. Ho would not for a moment suppose that gentle men were influenced by outside pressure, but it was said, and wUh some truth, too, that much of the prejudice that had been excited against the construction of these water-works had been caused by the efforts of those who desired to become connected with their con struction. He was first, last, and always for the introduction of water into the District of Columbia. Mr. Stewart said that this work was neces sary, and the Government should not hesitate a moment in making the requisite appropria tions to supply the city with water. Mr. Sapp was opposed to the appropriation, and considered the estimated cost of tne aque duct enormous. Mr. Barksdale said the fifty millions of dol lars worth of property owned by the Govern ment here required that some provision should be made for its safety. No gentleman would undertake to deny that if eitner of the public buildings here should take fire there would not be water enough to extinguish the flames. It struck him that the plan that had been adopted was the proper one, because from the Potomac alone could a bountiful supply of water be had. Mr. Cox held that as to the commitment of the Government to the work, he apprehended that his friend from Mississippi would not re gard the large sum which had been expended in surveying routes for the Pacific railroad preparatory to its construction as committing the Government to such an enterprise. As had been well said, the commitment of the Gov ernment had been to itself. Mr. Davis of Maryland, was opposed to pay ing for all the local improvements of Wash ington out of the publio treasury. On that account he should vote against the amend ment of the Senate. He should be in favor of Government paying a fair proportion of the monev necessary to introduce water into this city, but was not for doing so at this time and under these circumstances, but in a separate bill, in which provision oould be made for a fair pro rata payment by the citixens of the District. Mr. Peck said that the Government had in vested millions upon millions in the city, not merely in structures necessary for the conve nience of the Government, but in works of an ornamental character. In the archives of the Departments of this capital were reposing the sole evidence of titles to property of citiiens of many of the States of this Confederacy, and how could that evidence be insured 7 The Government annually spent hundreds of thou sands of dollars for ornamenting the national capital, and in his opinion wisely, and be would cheerfully vote appropriations for that purpose; for he was for building up a me tropolis commensurate with the power and prosperity of the people, one of whose repre sentatives he was. Mr. Pringie contended that this project for bringing water into Georgetown and Wash ington had never received that deliberation from Congress to which its magnitude enti tled it. Mr Keitt of South Carolina, remarked that there is a point in the legislation of every body upon any question of mere expediency where it must be supposed that the policy of that body is settled. The Government should not construct this aqueduct for the city of Wash ington, but it ought to build it for its own purposes. Mr Giddings earnestly urged the adoption of the Senate's amendment. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, replied to the ar guments that had been advanced in favor of the appropriation. After a few remarks from Mr. Pringie against, and Mr. Keitt for the Senate's amend ment, and without coming to a vote on the amendment of the Senate as amended on motion of Mr. Trippe requiring the cities of Washington and Georgetown to bear half the cost of the work, the Committee rose and the House adjourned. Praceediaga ef T?-Day. In the 8enate, to-day, a number of peti tions were presented and referred, and bills were reported. The pending motion to reconsider the reso lution to change the site of the proposed Na tional Armory in the District of Columbia from the mall in the Seventh Ward to Judi ciary Square, then cam* up. Mr. Yulee advocated it. Mr Brown was opposing it as the Star went to press. In the House, many gentlemen desired to introduce bills and resolutions for reference ; to which objection was made. The Chair then called the Committees ; and various bills, resolutions, 4c., were reported from various committees bj many members and referred ; the adverse reports among them being ordered to lie on the table. In the course of these proceedings, Mr. Quitman reported back from the Military Af fairs Committee a Senate bill to pay Jacob Dodson, a colored man, for military services in California, a sum found by the accounting officers to be due to him ; bill passed. PERSONAL. ....Senator Brodhead has returned to Washington, after a brief visit to Pennsylva nia. .... Hon. Charles Billinghurst, member of Congress, of Wisconsin, is on a visit to his western home. ....Hon T.J. Fuller and Hon Senator Wit. Pitt Fessenden are on a visit to their homes in Maine. ....

Thomas J Key, of Mississippi is about to establish a paper in Kansas to be called the Kansas Constitutionalist. ....Thomas Jefferson was born in Shad well, Albsmarle county, Virginia, on the 14th of April, 1743, and yosterday was consequent ly the 123d anniversary of that event. He died on the 4th of July, 1826, just fifty years from the date of the signing of the Declara tion of Independence, his great work. Banks is thb Uhited States?There are seventy one Banks in the United States hav ing a capital of a million of dollars or more each The Bank of Commerce at New York has the largest capital, namely, five millions ot dollars. The Merchants' Bank of Boston is next, having four millions. The Bank of Louisiana, at New Orleans, comes nearly up to the same mark, $3,998,000 capital. The American, Exchange and Metropolitan Banks of New York have each three millions, and the New Orleans Canal and Banking Company, and the Bank of Charleston, S C., have about the same amount. Pardoned by the President.?Cant. Charles Kerman, who in the summer of 1854 was sentenced in Boston to imprisonment in the County Jail three years, and to pay a fine of $1000 for being concerned In the fitting out of the schooner "Glenmorgan" for the slave trade, has received an unconditional pardon from the President of the United States, and was discharged from jail oa Friday last. The Viroimia Search Law ?Its Constitu tionality to b* Tested ?The Alexandria Sen tinel says that one of the coal and iron com panies who have their depot in that eity, and whose vessels are searched as they go out of the Potomao, intend to test the constitutional ity of the new law at the nest term of the ee?rt ADDITIONAL FORE 10If INTELLIGENCE BY THE CAMBRIA.

The Paris Patrie (Government paper) now says , " Without infringing the necessary re ?erve, we mu announce that the trifling diffi culties, of which some foreign correspondents hare spoken, have not been attended with any important oonsequences " The Congress and its commission oontinue to labor at their task. The commission consists of all the second plenipotentiaries, Messrs Bournueny, Cowley, Hubner, Villamarina and Hatsneld. Dejenie being ill, Ali Pacha re places him. Th* committee is now engaged in the re duction of the protocols. The only delay, sup posing no accident to occur, can be in the proper framing of them. Toe London Times, in an editorial, speaks of " our allies as unwise and undignified in their demonstrations in favor of peace, and conceives that the people of Great Britain will be discoutented with the terms of peace ?the only results to England being her vic tories, and the consciousness of undiminished resources." THE CRIMEA. Advices from the Crimea to the 13th ult., state that the health of the French army had improved. Several conflagrations had occurred at Eu patoria. Omar Pacha had a long interview lately with the Turkish Ministry. He determines to resign if satisfaction is not accorded to him. Ten thousand English troops were at Ba laklava. Gen. de la Marmora had left Constantinople for the Crimea. The Polish General Zamoyski, had arrived at Constantinople. The English fleet was expected at Malta. The weather in the Crimea oontinued stor my. GREAT BRITAIN. There is no excitement whatever with re gard to difficulties with America. Interest in

the subject is almost extinct, although the press continue to disouss it. A writer dating from Paris sends an admirable letter on the subject to the London Times The London Marin* Insuranc* Underwriters held a meeting to discuss the present state of that business?F. Baring presided. The dis cussion was adjourned to some future day Louis Kossuth writes to the press, express ing himself mortified by the recent appeal in his behalf through the journals by Walter Savage Landor. FRANCE. The crew of the Russian frigate Diana, cap tured in the China seas, had arrived In France. A grand review of 100,000 men in Paris has been arranged to oelebrate the signing of th* treaty of Peace. It was rumored that the Emperors of Russia and Austria would visit Paris soon after the conclusion of Peace. Napoleon has determined to send an exten sive expedition to colonize Madsgas^ar, which England dislikes. Six thousand British troops have embarked at Marseilles for the Crimea, probably to sup ply siok vacancies. SPAIN. The Queen has performed the annual cere mony of washing the feet of the poor. So also has the Emperor of Austria. There is noth ing reported, concerning the Carlist troubles. ITALY. Tho American Mediterranean squadron re mained at Genoa at the latest accounts. GERMANY. The Assembly of Hamburg had rejected the project for a new constitution to be drawn up by the Germanic Diet. AUSTRIA. The differences betweon Austria and Rome, relative to the proposed conference to interpret the concordat have been mutually arranged. Very bad feeling by Russia and Prussia to wards Austria is exhibited in numerous small matters. PERSIA.
