The Torchlicht Procession Last Eve* 150.?It was said, and studiously circulated among the Germans throughout tho Northern and Western States, that if their " Turners' Convention"' was to be held in this city they would be mobbed, and that to come here would be tantamount to willingly incurring the dangers of a riot. This assertion wu given out as one of the eau*es why the 44 Tag eatzung" had been called to Pittsburg The German citixens residing in Washington city, always ready to contribute their share, when necessary, to preserve the fair fame of cur city, became exceedingly indignant when they heard these rumors, and to show to the Tur ners, as well as to the country, that there is as much if not more security hero than else where. invited the Convention now sitting in the city to participate in a grand torchlight procession which came off last evening, in tho best or ler and with the most perfect decorum. Preceded by the Marine Band, who were dis coursing popular American melodies, they marched through the principal avenues and streets, and at la.-t visited, in a body, one of our old German citixens. on Ninth street, by whom the " Turner bund of North America ' had been invited to stnnd godfather to one of his children, to be baptixed that day. The entire ceremony went off to the credit of the participants not less than to the credit of the orderly and well-behr ved population of our t'air city National Theatre.?The anticipations of cur play-goers and pleasure-seekers generally, have be jd excited to the highest pitch by the premised advent of the fascinating Laura Xeece and her entire admirable dramatic ?corps on Monday evening next. The occasion wiil be an important one. not less through tho intrinsic merit of the rare emjoymcnt it offers than for the gratifying and conclusive evi dence it furnishes of the intention and en deavor of Messrs.

HArnrtD!?The day* of superstition hay? not yet rawed, and many a horse-shoe nailed over a aoor shows that the inmates fear the approach of evil spirits! Among an ignorant group, this morning, a haunted house was the subject of a loud and earnest conversation. It was maintained by a tall, athlethic man, that, in a certain locality, the doors and win dows, which had been sccurely fastened ay, with heavy bolts? >pened, as if of their own nccord ; and, that, it was presumed, unseen but potent spirit* thus gained ingress A little, shabby listener to the wonarous tale was around to the dignity and of a" expression of his opinion?and was bold enough to say he did not believe jt Thn?e ragged rantaloonSfcwere soon seen in rapid flight; his companions being inclined to visit him with punishment for his incredulitv! They termed oim an "ignorant loafer;" but as to the in telligence of the parties, our readers, of course, can form their owa conclusions. Ca*phi*? Accidmt ?The child of Mr. Kckhard, who was so severely injured by cam pbine on Wednesday nijzht, is still in a critical condition; its face and breast being severely burnt. The accident was in consequence of the top of the hand-lamp, in the hands of the person taking the child to bed, coming off; the flaming liquid falling upon the little girl. The father is absent, at Chicago, we believe; but, in his absence kind friends are attending to the case of tho sufferer. Brgoars.?Quite a number of sturdy beg gars have arrived in this city from other cities, and they apply almost immediately to the authorities to be admitted to the Poor Asylum, j and if refused, they demand a commitment to the workhouse. If possible, this growing ev:? should bo remedied seasonably, that our Alms house may not be filled to overflowing with foreign paupers to tho exclusion of the poor of cur own city, as was the case last wintor.

CIRCULAR. Atto*n*t Gemsal's Office,) Aoril 2, 1856. * Si* : By the provisions of an act to ascertain and settle private land claims tn the State of California, passed by Congress March3, lB5l,and of an act in amendment thererf, which was passed August SI, 1*52, It was enacted, In sub stance, among other things : 1 That for the purpose of ascertaining and settling such claims, a commission should t2 constituted to con*lit of three commissioners. 2 That every person, claiming lands in Cali fornia by virtue of any right or title derived from theSoanishor Mexican government, should pre sent tae same to the commissioners, for adjndlca for as between such claimant and the United States. 3 i'bat, in nil casts of the rejection or com lin.iAtion of anv such claim b- the said comwls sloners, It shouid bs lawful .or the party claim ant, or the United States, as the case misfit be, to demand a rehearlne In the tMstrlct court of the United States, subject to ap"w?al therefrom to the Supreme Court of tee Unitei States 4. That new evidence might lie adduced on such heating before the district court. 5. That a'1 lands, the claims to which sbon-d be Anally teje ted by the commissioners, or Mnr?l ly decided to be Invalid bv the district or Supreme Court, and all lands the clalnt\* to which s .ould not be dul" presented to the said commissioners, should be ueetred, held, and considered as part of thepuMlc domain of the United States 0. That all claims finall" confirmed by the commissioners, or b" the District or Supreme Court, a patent should issue to the claimant, upon his presenting to the General Land Office an iu theutlc certificate of such confirmation, and a plat or survey of said land dul" certified and ap proved by the surveyor eene'ai of California. 7 That, if the tlt.e of the claimant to such land should be contested by any other person, It would be lawful for such person to institute process, for determining such ronllict r.f right. In the proper district court of the United States; such court having power in that esse to restrain, bv Injunc tion, the Issue of any patent to the party claimant until the right should have been determined by competent judicial authority. 8 That the fnal decrees rendered by the said commissioners, or by the District or Supreme Court of the United States, or any patent issued to a claimant In virtue of s icb decrees, should be conclusive between the United States and such claimant only, and should not afl'ect the lntere ts of third persons 1) That, inev-ry case in which the commis sioners should render a final decision, it should be their duty to have two certified transcripts pre pared of their proceedings and decision, and of the papers and evidence on which the same were founded; one of which t'anscriptsto be filed with the clerk of the proper district court, and the oth er to be transmitted to the Attorney General of t e Uni 'ed States, and the filing of such tran scripts with the clerk aforesaid, to operate ipso far to, as an appeal for the party aaalnstwhom the decision snould have been rendered. 10 That, if such derision should be against the private claimant, 1? should he his duty to file notice with theclerk aforesaid, within six months thereafter, of his intention to prose* ut? the ap peal ; and if the decision shou<d be against the Unlted States, It should be the duty of the A ttor ney General, within six months after receiving said transcript, to cause a notice to be filed with the clerk aforesaid, that the appeal would be f.iosecu'.ed by the United States; on failure of either party to file such notice with the clerk aforesaid, the appeal to be regarded as dismissed. Such is an outline of tb? pruv?s??>ns of statute regarding the examination of private land claims in the State of California, in so far more espe cially, as concerns the official dutjPof the Execu tive ot the United States. The commissioners, provided for that purpose, entered upon, and have not? completed, the dis charge of their appropriate functions, having heard and determined upwards of eight hundred cases, presented by parties claimants of land un der Spanish or Mexican grants In California; and transcripts in the several cases have, from time to time, as they were determined, been transmitted to the Attorney General. Of these transcripts, the first was received at this office on the^ld March. 1853, a few days be fore the present Incumbent of the office entered upon the discharge of its duties In the whole course of the first year, however, only twelve transcripts reached this office, and they did not att'ord adequate means of coming to a general de termination cf the subject-matter Thus, of ne cessity, there could be no definite action in any of these cases during the first year During the ensuing year a large number of tran scripts arrived; but, on examination ?f them, it was found impossible, with due rega d to the In terests cf the United States, to decide in what cases to abstain from prosecuting appeals to $nal Judgment, until satisfactory .>/ decision should h?"e b*?en < itu-d bv the trial of a num ber of leading'case* in the Supreme Court. For this cause, It became necessary to file noti ces of appeal I n every case, rot with anv purpose of subjecting the parties to the exfecseof a trial In the district court in every case by-t only to sus pend the casea t?i?re, and thug avoid tfce conse quence of otherwise losing the right of appeal, in cases, where, by application of decisions of the Supreme Court, it snould in the event be found th?t a rehearing was requisite, in justice to the United States or to parties claiming under the United States. Efforts were made to carry through the district court, and bring to the Supreme Court, as speedily as rosslble, some leading cases for dechlon there Four cases reached the fenpreme Court In Decem ber term, 185:$, but in season to take vp only one of them, and that on a rue ;tlon oi form notafi'ect lug Its merits, in December terfn, 1854, two of these cases w*re heard and determined on their merits, so as to settle some general principles, but not enough to rrake it safe or convenient, then to proceed to re examine cases in order to dismiss appeals in the district court At the present t?-rm, however, whicn commenced In December. 1855, and will have been continued by adjournment ?o the end of May next, it is conceived that In the numerous case s which have n<.w reached the Su p:exne Court, a s-.i^ieieut t^nly of decisions will nave been had to justify the final disposition, without further trial,of no lnco>'?idervbl?i portion r.f the ca?es stttl (.ending in the district courts of California, on apj>e:il l?y the United States. 1 propose, therefore, on the 1st of June next, to commence th- re examination of the transcripts, with a view to the discontinuance of appeals, in all ca es where justice requires it, ard It can' be done without manifest Ptejudl"e to the ftn'^d Stales. The rases will oe resumed in. the order of the teneral calendar of the commissioners, and wher ever no sufficient reason to the contrary fippDars, notice of the d!s< oatlnuance of the appeal will be transmitted at onre to the clerk cf the proper dis trict court Where objections appear on the face of the re cord, or may bo <^ggrsted by written notice, duly filed In this effice on or before the first day of August next, such objections will be deemed mif fielent to prevent the discontinuance of appeal, when they appear to Involve rights or Interests of the United States, and not otherwise le tvlnj; th.rd parties to pursue the remedy, which the statute piovjd^s for them, bf petition before the proper i district court, and Injunction to restrain Issue of | patents by the Comm.ssloner of Public Lands.
