Di>xnkl^a%d tue Nevasisk Tha gedy?Probable I^b< ence or Dosxkli.y .? The late murder at Nevasilk, N. J., has assumed a new and singular phase. The innocence of Don nelly, whom Moses accused as being the cause of his death. Is now claimed and strongly urged by many who heretofore believed him guilty. On Monday last the l>ody of Moses wis exhumed at Chapel Hill graveyard, and another autopsy made by Dr Kinnell, of New York. The wound in flicted on the throat was fonnd not to hive been sutflclent to cause death had prompt and proper stejw been taken A wound was found, too. upon the arm, indicating that a struggle must have taken place. It is e la. met I that Donnelly, bcim/ a medical student, was sufficiently versed in su. gc-ry to know where to strike the throat fatally, and the wound in the arm shows that much blood must have been shed, yet no blood was found upon any of Donnelly's clothing. The direct ac cusation of Moses against Donnelly is accounted for bv supposing the former to be greatly excited, and that seeing Donnelly flrst he accused him. It Is even claimed that the mart may have com mit U d suicide while temporarily deianged, and that under hallucination he laid thedced on Don nelly. Donnelly states that he arose, as hewasaceus tomed to, about daylight on the morning of the murder, proceeded to the office, opened the safe and prepared his account book* for the business of the day He was afterwards going up stairs to put on his collar, (it was his custom to do this.) when he was startled by the outcries of Ann Bar ley. the servant girl. Looking up, he s:.w Mose* on tiie landing, bleeding from tLc throat, upon which he was pressing his bauds as :f to staunch the blood. Horror-struck by the sight, he re treated down stairs, when he met Mr. Smith, the proprietor of the hotel, to whom he told what he had seen He aft.-rwa.ds went up stairs with others, and. when M?e?es had been borne back to Led, assisted, as best he could, in undressing and makim; the wounded man comfortable." He looked at the wound, and seeing that none of the larger vessels had been severed, asked for a fork to act as a Uiuirulym, by which to secure the bleedintr vessels ; but the excitement and throng was so great that no attention was paid to his re quest Beside*, Mrvses, who actea like a crazed man, had accused him of inflicting the weurid.

X ^ 'I* WASHINGTON NEWS ANDjGOSSlP. ??^ EFFECTS OF Slwrnf |?XTlCfMO* "*>* TUB North.?Under the dccarion of tke Died Scott case and the provisions of the Kafliis-Nabraska bill, it will be |?gnlly poisibjo kereafter that slavery may be extended to smy Territory of the Union, however far north, and at tho proper time the people of such Territories may perpetu ato the institution. Considering that the Ter ritories arc the common property of tho whole Union, and that the South through her Jeffer son and Monroe, her Tyler and her Polk, her Taylor and herSoott, and her tend of thousand i of brave volunteer?, has been actively and ef ficiently instrumental in the acquisition of these Territories,?considering, moreover, that the mighty Northwestern Territory was also chiefly a donation from the South, and that she is already excluded from that, or at least from equal participation in it Considering all this, it would seem but an equitable solution of tho imbroglio to give her hereafter an equal chance in the remaining Territories. What would the North think and say if a numerous and respect ablo portion of her citizens, were, by act of Congress, directly or indirectly, excluded from settling in the common Territory ? Let those of the North who would exclude from such set tlement a numerous and respectable class at the South take the case homo to thoinselvcs, and consider how they would feel and act if circumstanced like tho South. Let them recol lect, too, that insult is added to injury; for the South is bitterly denounced for gross immorali ty in holding slaves, and this charge of im morality is most distinctly and loudly asserted by that portion of the population, who, or their sire?. opj>osed the acquisition of each foot of territory. The South feels as poor oid Lear felt after he had given up his kingdom to his daughters, and they proposed to strip him of his suite of attendants?and is almost ready to exclaim with him. "I gave you all!:' At least, aided by tho Democracy of the North, she helped to acquire all. The Democracy, North and South, have always advocated the fair acquisition of territory, whilst the opposi tion of eachseetion, no matter what their name, have always opposed it. Let tho Republican party of the North, (wo address them only; for the true Democracy of the North has been true as steel to the equal rights of the South, to justico and to Union,) let them, we say, take the ca3e home to them selves. With similar claims, how would they bear to be excluded ? Similarly circumstanced, how many Northern hotspurs would be ready to unsheathe the sword to assert their equal rights and to punish the foul aspersions on their social and domestic habitudes * Let the shades of the heroes who fought at Lexington. Bunker HH1, and Ticonderoga answer ! We want the re-establishment of harmony and friendship between North and South, and think it would be a salutary thing for the conscicn tous among the Republicans to retire into the recess of their closets and consider well whether in this matter they are doing ns they would be done by. We know the North is equally pa triotic and equally chivalrous with the South ; equally ambitious to extend our dominion, and equally active in doing so, when the opportu nity occurs. The South has been a more promi nent actor in the acquisition ot territory, simply because there was more to be acquired that adjoined her. The Seasox.?The absence of the President from Washington of course?nakes a dearth of office seekers here just now. Thoro is very little traveling through Washington, t >o, us the plea sure and health-rcekcrs arc all domiciled at the watering placcs, and it is yet too early f<?r the Southern merchants to be passing along in this direction for their fall supplies. Few have been here in the last fortnight from a distance except persons coining to transact business with the Executive Department, who are few in number when compared with those usually among us attracted hither by other causes. Trade in Washington is, therefore, uull. in all branches of business, it being too early for our own folks and neighbors to lay in fall supplies of any description. Nevertheless, we arc destined to have in Washington a very brisk fall. Year by year tho amount of Government business necessarily transacted at the Federal metropolis increases so rapidly, and the railroad facilities for reach ing this point improve so rapidly in ull quarters of the country, as that our transient population increases ujx>n -U3 astonishingly. We rccollect well when to comc from Baltimore to Washing ton by public conveyance required almost a day's time?certainly from six to ijine hours, depending upon tho state of the roads. Now, in that time, one may reach here from what was then " the Western country,' and at about the coat of the journey from Baltimore tn those days. Since then, too, there have boon accumulated by the <iovcrr.incnt at this point.more interest ing works of art, and other thin<ps of interest to all intelligent person?, than are to be found in any othe* city in tho Union, not excepting New Vork ; all of which may be enjoyed by any nnd everybody, free of any cost whatever. The ac commodation fur strangers here have grown pari pa**n with the demands on them, until, for the size of the city, there arc probably more and l>cttcr arrangements of the sort than in any other city in the world. Persons are prone to compare them with those of the half-million city of New York, and to growl, in inauguration times, for instance, becauso they are not suffi cient for the comfortable accommodation of of such an avalanche of visitors as would strain the hotels of that metropolis if suddenly otuiing upon them in addition to their ordinary num ber of visitors. There is no senso in ?o doing ; but the world is prone to be extremely foolish in such matters. Tuk Mirder at LewesV70KTU.?Wc have the following in relation to the late tragedy at Leavenworth, Kansas : Leavenworth Citv, K. T., Aug 1, *5?. Editor Star: Uur town was thrown into great excitement last night, tn c oil sequence of the mur der of a man. an?t two of the perpetrators have been lynched to-day by the citizen*. Th* facts are, as far as 1 can learn, that the murdered man, having sold a claim, came to town yesterday, went to a tavern last night, and drank a little; he drew out his pocket book and counted out i*!US. The proprietor and another man present Invited him to take a walk; they proceeded as far as the public spring, near the river. when th?y were at tacked by two men. One of the party mnde ot)'; the other received three stabs, ancf his body was thrown into the river, aiid drifted ashore about forty yards Ih-Iow. The tavern keejier, time, notitied the police, arid returned with them to the place of the murder, when, not being dde to Rive a satisfactory explanation of the matter, he was arrested. During the night he gave information which led to the arrest of live others. About noon, to-day, the excitement became very great, a large crowd having collected around the mayor's olllce, where the murdered man lay. '? Hang them," was the cry. in the inean time several other arrests were made which threw a little more light on the matter, continuing the ?>e ltef that they werethe guilty party. The excite ment grew stronger everv moment. Judge Le coinpte advised the people to leave them In the hauus of the law, ana that tbey should l>e prose cuted to the fullest extent. Tho response was, that there was no law of justice in the Territory. The excitement still increased. The < ry was for the jail, where two of them were confined; rofies w#rc procured, and the two prisoners were taken to the hank of the river and hung on one tree. About two thousand jiersons were present. The police, taking advantage of the excitement, hur ried oil'three others (di pulsed) from the mayor's otllretothe fort. The excitement has abated somewlmt, the pris oners have been brought from th? fort, ana are held by the mayor and d larde body of police. It t* the prevailing opinion tTiat the three Will be hung to-morrow or on Monday next. The cltl 717J>H, ar'" organising a vigilannr committee. These are a part of a very strong v ;uiy who have infested our city and Territory for a long time They have evaded th- law -o tat f heie have been note** thai* six murder* committed here In the last month. A man can"I be suspected of haviiy 830about Lim, hut he is waylaid, stat ed or ahot, and Iben robbed. Not later than MM day* ago thqrewcre two soldiers belonging to thr Poit going home about!) o'clock, when thev were fired at through the bush, killed, and robbed of S^UO. It Was known that they were paid on the same day. A matt is not safe in going outside hU door, even In the most public place, after dark It is hoped that this transaction will break up the gang of murderers, and rid our city of a clam of men that are of no use to society. The police are on the track of a good many other*. It I* hoped that every individual 'of the gang will be I punished. Out of all the murders that have been committed la the Territory, there ha* nol boen one solitary execution. The ends of justice hnve been frustrated through political Interferencei but now every man, Free-State and Pro-slavery, hold out the right hand of friendship to each otlier,and It Is hoped will continue so from hence forth. 1 send you this in advance of the mall, so you will have it lieforc some of our Western pa pers.
