SrsrENDtn Payment.?The long-established banking house of Pairo A Nourse, in this city, suspended this morning, owing, wo hear, to a difficulty in realizing in these tight times at the West, on their heavy investments in that quarter. Their assets are regarded among the bankers of Washington as being much larger than their liabilities. Indeed, we are informed by a barker in no way connected with them that they are at this moment worth three times theif liabilities. _ They have assigned all their property, per sonal and real, to Mr. S. C. Edes, a wealthy gentleman of Baltimore, as trustee, for the ben efit of all their creditors alike. Their circula tion will be instantly paid by the trustee on presentation at their office. The house of Pairo A Nourse has long en joyed the confidcnce of this community, which will be glad to learn that their suspension bids fair to be but for a very brief period. There is nothing in it to alarm any one as to the condi tion of any other Washington bank?public or private?or as to that of this community at large, which never was easier in money matters than at this time The San Fkancisco Vigilance Committee. A merchant of San Francisco wrote (says the New York Tim ft) by the last steamer, as fol lows : 4> In consequence of the reform brought about by the Vigilance Committee, this city nas been governed during the past year at an expense of about ,(?(*>, against an average expense the previous years of over on* million Jive hundred tkoHsand dollars, fix time* as much as it now rusts. Aside from the great benefits arising from the repression of outrage, tumult, violence and robbeiv, the saving of one and a quarter million of dollars per year to our city, is worth all its has cost to bring about the desirable results, and speaks loudly for the necessity of such a reform. ' If half this story be true, something or other ha.* wrought a very remarkable change for the better in the municipal affairs of our Pacific sido commercial capital. Three years ago it was the very sink of municipal iniquity. Its panacea should be universally known through out the United States, that all the large cities of the Atlantic side might avail themselves of it. Wo, however, expect that something moro than tho terror among evil-doers inspired by the act* of the late Vigilance Committee is at tho bottom of this wonderful improvement. The components of the community of San Fran cisco four years ago knew nothing of each other, having been drop]?ed down from the clouds, as il were, in a day. Since then, society has been sifted there, and the chaff is no longer so inti mately mixed with the wheat as that few know one from the other. Our theory is, that though men aspiring to rulo or lead any American community may cheat the people once or twice into favoring them above and bejond their dc - crts, in the long run common sense and common honesty asserts and surely re-establishes its right to control public affairs everywhere in the United State*, except in communities essen tially befogged with ncw-Iightism. American Progress.?Not one in a thou sand of our people comprehend the giant stride1 of our great country on the march of national progress, wherein the United States are des tined to stride, stride, stride ahead, as no other people ever increased in wealth, numbers, and national power. At the rato at which we have progressed for the last half century, in another half century we will be ae far ahead of every other nation of the globe, as England is at this moment ahead of Spain. Russia, but for the general prevalence of ignorance among her peo ple?the necessity of her peculiar government? might be our rival at that time, but the intel lectual darkness overshadowing most of the Czar's subjects forbids the idea of such a possi bility. But a quarter of a century or so ago, Ohio was deemed almost as far off from us, practi cally, as Oregon and Washington Territories are now. and she was by uo means as well devel oped as Iowa i- at thi - moment. We well rec ollect when Ohio was regarded a* the '-farWest." Already, however, she Is in the very van of development. \~nlr the following brief para graph. which we clip from an exchange : Ohio.?The Cincinnati Gazette ?ay?, that iu addition toan abundant r of valuable timber, ore third of the whole Ptate of Ohio is underlaid wth bituminous coal, forming the l>est and cheapest fuel. wliile her i'nti ore is equal in quantity and quality to that of Great Britain. Her population is 2,'XM>,W)0. The value of her agricultural pro ductions, according to data based on the census of l-jj, is ?ll?3.900,00. The value of exports in Ohio exceeds the value of exports in N**w York, a- to agriculture and mining, by $31 ,(JbJ,OOJ. The Gal* tte says that Ohio is now worth one thousand millions of dollars, and three-fourths of it have been mad** out of the prolits of labor, applitd to agriculture, mining and manufactures. The Fort Snelling Sai.e.?We commend to those Northern journals who make it a rule to find fault with everything done by a Demo cratic official, and who have of late been pre tending to cry out their eyes e'en a'most over the sale of Fort Snelling to Mr. Francis Steele, tho following brief comments on that transac tion. which we extract from a communication in the Bo.,ton Vn*t It spoils a well-laid scheme to scare up a mare's nest, most essentially em bracing as it does a conclusive reply to all the objections that have been started against the sale in question. It evidently comes from some one who is familiar with transactions in Western lands, concerning which the mass of the community east of the Alleghanies are almost as profoundly ignorant as of the trans actions of the London stock market: 44 I consider tne sale a wise one?as do most Western men of any experience?and believe land, had it offered at public .sale, would not have biought to tlie government an advance over t!ie minimum pine. $1 *?!j j* acre. My reason* for this belief are easily stated, and sustained by numerous precedent*. Had the land t>een duly advertised. as recommended by the New Vork Tribune, allowing three months intervention l>e tween the public notice and time of sale, every forty acre tract of the acres would have re c ived to its friendly l>o?om a squatter, placed tlieie by a combination of s|>eculato<*s possessed of sutJi'-ient power and influence to secure the land, no matter what forces wete brought to bear against them, and 1 i in cite the history of eveiy public sale of valuable lauds in the West to sup put me iu the supposition 1 will, from haste, mention but two similar cases of recent transpira tion '?At Osage, Iowa, at the sales ordered to be held in May, IK>7, l5.VtNNi acres were to be ei posi-d at public sale, of which 2o,UJ0 acres laid eut of the lied Cedar river, and considered valu aMe f.om tin ir contiguity to the thickly settled country near the Mississippi A Ithough the squat ters were irreatly oqtnumltered by the speculator*, they defeated the object of the sale and secured to tliemselve* the most valuable of the lands at tlie minimum price, which Immediately passed into tlie hands of a few speculator*, notwithstanding p.*. ties w? re present desirous of the land for im rnedi te settlement,and willing to pay for it from thr e to live dollars tier acre. ??The other is, although less widely known. DiOie |?ertinent to the subject in question The Fort Crawfo d It' rve, situated but a short dis tance from Prairie Du Chien, and extremely val uable. was lately ordered to be sold, of which Ifetieial notice was had in the northwest He fore tlie time of sale it was literally covered with squatters, in many instance* presenting adverse claims, and all combined to restrict the otters to the minimum standaid. 44 It is, then, to western men, at Irast, ve;y evl d?u! that, had the Government pursued the same course hitherto held In regard to sales of Govern ment lands, in the disposal of the Kort Snelling mop? rty, instead of the sum of S*T'1,0(>0 Iwt would have been received, allowing 9J0,U'JU for the baildiugs, their highest value." The Pre-emptions allohed to Mail Con tractors thhoi'uh Territories wust or the Mlssis.siri>i.?An important circular on this subject has ju.?; been issued from the General L?i;J Wice. The right I) these prc-emp ions arises under the acts of Congress of March 3d, ]M5i, and the special post office pre-emption aot of t^e 3d March, 1807. According to this circular, the Uencr;! Land Office holds that to constitute a right of pre emption under the law, the mail route on which the claim is based matt form a part of a system stretching laterally across the Territory, being a link in, or part of, a connected route from tho lino of tho States west of the Mississippi to tho Pacific Second. The party preferring tho claim must furnish a map, showing the " stations," with a certificate sworn to fcy the postmaster at each ''station," setting forth that the said "stations'" are between the points designated in the con tract. The map is required to be duly filed in tho district land office, and to be accompsr.'ed by evidence from tho Tost Office Department that tho claimant is a contractor on the route . designated. Third. The mail contractor claiming must file in the district office his declaration of in tent to claim the benefit of the law within three months from the selection of his "stations" if on surveyed lands ; if not on lands surveyed at the time when selected, then the said declarc tion may be filed at any time within three I months after the return of the township plat to ( the district office. Fourth. Proof satisfactory to tho local land offices must bo adduced, exhibiting tho extent of the improve meat at each " station," and that it fully sabserves the purpose of the "station. ' Fifth. To be but one "station" for each twenty miles?the distance between the pre empted tracts may exceed, but cannot be less I than twenty miles. Sixth. If on unoffercd land, the claim must be proved up and paid for during the existence of the contract, and before the day fixed by the President for the sale of the land ; if not, all rights of the party are forfeited. If on offered lands and subject to private entry, the proof and payment arc to be made in a year from the dote of the commencement of the improvement. Seventh. Ea?h contractor bringing himself within the law, is entitled to a pre-emption not exceeding 610 acrcs. in continuous tracts, to in clude his improvements, according to the lines ot the public surveys, and not extending to any pass in a mountain or other defilo; ami, of coursc, not including mineral or other re served lands. Eighth. Noticc to adverse claimants to any portion of tho land selected as a station must be given in writing, and should be served in time to allow at leitft a day for every twenty miles the party must havo to travel in going to the place of takiag testimony. The principles laid down above arc applied also to the pre-emption rights of the contractors I for the transportation of the mail (overland) from the Mississippi to San Francisco. Promoted and Appointed.?Mr. Thomas J. Wallace has been promoted to fill the third class clerkship in the Third Auditor's office made vacani, by tho recent romoval of Mr. Nevius. Mr W. A. I). Carroll, of Mississippi, has been appointed to fill the vacancy mado in the offico of the Register of the Treasury (firstclass clcrkship) by the promotion of Mr. Wallace. Mr. John. E. Holland has been promoted to fill the clerical vacancy (third class) in the office of the Fourth Auditor's office occasioned by Mr. Rickctt's removal. Mr. J. D. Anderson promoted to fill the (sec ond class) va *ancy occasioned by Mr. Holland s promotion. Mr. Samuel Melvin has been appointed to the first class clerkship vacant through Mr. Ander son's promotion. Tiif. Overland Mail.?It seems to bo un derstood that the Hon. Mr. Phelps of Missouri, who has been in Washington for some time past, has succccdcd in obtaining a modification of the route of the St. Lou is-branch of the great over land mi.il to California, that having been the business that brought him hither on this occa sion. Thus, we hear, the President consents that the branch in question shall intersect the Memphis branch at Preston, Texas, instead of at Little Rock. Arkansas, a? now provided. To intersect at Prcst m. this mail will pass through Springfield, Missouri, and Fayetteville, Van Burcn, and Fort Smith, Arkansas. This change i-< of course to be dependent on obtaining the consent of the contractors for poiforming the scrvice, whose refusal is not anticipated. Fiiom the Steamship Niagara ?The Navy Department have advices from Capt. Hudson, of the Niagara, at Plymouth, Eng., to the 27th ultimo. It was not then determined whether to recommence laying tho trans-Atlantic cable before July first next; the probability being that no previous effort will be made. The pending proposition to transfer the re* maining (torlion of the cable on the vessels of the late expedition (2,528 statute miles in 1 length) to the Great India Telegraph line now so particularly required, seemed likely to pre vail; as by the 1st of May next it was easily I possible to make another lot of 3.000 miles, the quantity required to renew tho Atlantic ex periment. Massachusetts.?The American party of Massachusetts are making a very vigorous cam paign apparently, against cx-Spcaker Banks, tho Republican nominee for Governor. They have renominated Governor Gardiner, and arc I electioneering for him with great enthusiasm. From the manner in which their canvass is bt-ing conducted, we judge that they entertain high hopes of defeating Ranks, though on what grounds we know not. The State is steeped so deeply in Abolitionism, and the disease there I is so essentially chronic, that we can perceive no hoj*e of its eradication to a point sufficient to admit of the overthrow of the Republican party at this time. [ The Naval Courts or Inquiry.?Before I Court No. 1, the caso of Mr. March being still under consideration, Lt. Brasher and tho Rev (Naval Chaplain) Geo. Jones were cxamided to-day in Mr. M.;s behalf. Before Court No. 2 the case of Lt. Charles Hunter (furloughed) was taken up this morn ing, and Commodores McCauley and Perry and Commander Glisson were examined in it on the Government's behalf. The defence of Lieut. Williamson was then read by Mr. Blount, his I counsel. Before Court No. 3 no business was done to day, owing to the sickness of Coinmodoro Storer, a member thereof. Prepayment or Postage.?The Post Office Department have issued instructions that when a distributing officc detects large quantities of unpaid transieut*printed matter passing through it uupaid, it shall return the same to the mail ing officc for prepayment; and also that at any office to which said matter is sent, which, al though addressed to, is not for the delivery of such office, the smne rule shall be observed. A Direction to Postmasters.?Tho Post Office Department rules that it is illegal to car ry letters not enclosed in a stamped envelopo over a railroad transporting the mails, unless it relates exclusively to the business of the said road It is the duty of Postmasters, if thoy obtain sufficient evidence to sustain a prosecu tion, t? report any and all such caaes to tho U. S. District Attorney. The Syracuse Convention.? Tho Demo cratic State Convention, recently in session at Syracuse, New York, exhibited much more har mony between the wings or "shells" than usual in such gatherings for the last eight or ten years. The Softs were largely in the ascendant in the body, and managed matters with prudence and I in a coocM'iitory manner. RKSiGrATio* or ax Armt Officer ?The resignation of Capt. Andrew G. Miller, 1st In fancy, has been ascepted by the President, to take effect October 31, 1867. ArroiKTsn.?The PnafipRit has appointed Henry 8 Potter Postmaster at Hnron, Michi gan ; Sherwood S. Mcrritt Postmaster at Nor wioh, New York. Thk Plakkts.?According to a scientific arti cle in the New York Herald, the planets will ap pear on to-morrow morning, at about 4 o'lclock, in relative positions that very rarely occur. They j will all, (the asteroids excepted) occupy a pos' tion but little exceeding one-fourth of th? gre^t circle of the heavens. Thus, the Sun, the Mooa, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Her schel (or Uranus) will all be within the plane of the ecliptic ; and within the space of a little more than a quadrant?from the Sun's few degrees be low the eastern horizon to the planet Jupiter, a little west of the meridian, So brilliant a celes tial display is well worth viewing, even at the inconveniencc of rising at an unusually early hour It may be added that Mercury will be in visible, owing to its proximity to the Son, while Herschel, at that hour, a little west of the merid ian, Is never visible to the unassisted eye. Jupi ter will pass the meridian at 22 minutes after 3 o'clock. Saturn at that time will be about 55? above its point of risini: from the horizon, Wn is about 35?, Mars about 26?, and Mercury about 25 above. Arrest of a Confidence Man?His Extraordi nary Adventures. [From the Rochester Advertiser, 9th.] On Saturday last a young man, aged about 18 yea its. and of good address, called at the resi dence of Hon. John Williams, and asked to.ee that gentleman. He was admitted, and stretch ing out his hand, asked Mr. VV. , with au insinu ating smile if he did uot recollect him. Major Williams replied that he did not, when the young man assured him that he had often met niin at Washington during the last Congress. He said he was a brother of Hon. Galusha Grow, of Pennsylvania, and readily entered into con versation Dinne* having been announced, Maj \V. asked Mr. Grow to dine, but he declined pos itively, saying he would entertain himself until Mr. W. was at leisure. After dinner Mr. Grow wan reluctantly obliged to reveal the fact that his money hud run shoit, and asked the loan of S3 to take him to Carlisle, Pa , which he received and left, protl'ering many thanks, and promising to remit the amount on his arrival home. Shortly after the occurrence of what we have lelated, a young man very like Mr. Grow, called upon Postmaster Allis, to whom he was intro duced by a third party as Mr. Marlon, a son of the Third Assistant Postmaster General at Wash ington. Marion stated that he had just dined with his friend, Hon. John Williams, whose ac quaintance he had the good fortune to make while that gentleman represented this district in Con i;re?s. Mr. Marion requested a letter of introduc tion to Postmaster Dickie, of Buffalo, which was furnished him and he left, handsomely acknowl edging his obligation. A few hour* after Mr. Marion parted with the Postmaster, the latter gentleman met Major Wil liams, and inquired of him in relation to the son of the third assistatrt P. M. G , who had called to pay his respects to him: Major XV. saw at a glance what he had half suspect* d before, that nis "friend" was an imposter, and replied that the young man's name was Grow?a brother of Congressman Grow?when at his house. A com parison of notes convinced both gentlemen that they had made the acquaintance of a veritable confidence-man. Postmaster Allis immediately telegraphed to P. At. Dickie, of BnflMo. informing him of the character of the rascal. Hut it seems the dis putrh did not arrive in season. Mr. "Marion" called upon the Buffalo Postmaster, presented his lti'er of introduction, was well entertained, it is safe to assume, and took bis departure, bearing a letter from Mr. Dickie to the Postmaster of De

troit. Mr. 44 Marion" took the train from Buffalo for Nia ;aru Falls, where he spent the Sabbath. We hav?- not full particulars of his sojourn at that delightful resort, b.it understand that he made th * acqua.inL.ace of fcrnamber of gentlemen there and had a very good time. Yesterday he invited a f-'vv of hi* fi icids to ride, aud they most gladly accept'd. He eoy^ed a hackman for the day at $i5, a-.id, in order to h^ve tliirgs nice In the after noon. Insisted that the owrer Oi the establish ment should keen his hor es in the st.ble during the early p?rt of the day so thai they might l?e fresh ?iid full of spirit. The ride wen taken. Kv'ery object of inte.est was visited, and the party had just returned to the Fa'ls, and the hackman Wis about to take fiueu dollan' worth of saiis factiyn out of the body of Mr. Marion, who was dead broke.*' when officer 1'ierce. of our detec tive police, who h?d b?en put upon the track, made his appea'ance on the ground, and took the brother of Don. Gal'isha tirow and the son of Assistant P. M. General Marion into custody. He immediately corducted his prisoner to this city and lodged him iu jail A.ier uis departu e ?7on the :e lde ice of Major Williams it w s dt:covered that .cveral silver f ult knives were mi..-ii g. That they were stolen by Mr. ?' tirow" toere is no doubt, thop-jh they weie not found nnon him. From letters found in li's ?k?. . e siou uated Detroit, eddre sed to his relatives in Wr?hiugton,; nd lie. ring the frank of Hon. O. B. Maile on. it is supposed that the re.tl r -me of the confiderce gentleman Is Amos Kendall Davis, cd we understand he represents th..t he wrs fo-merly a pu^o in one of the Horses of Congress, and that his father is now a watch man in the Post < >ttioc Department at Washington. In these letters he re,eesented that he Wi-s suf fering from an attack of bilious fever, and oked for remittances. The letter from Postmaster Dickie to the Detroit Postmaster was also found in his possession We presume it may now be called a "dead letter." GEO HUE TO WN AtfAltiS. CortefpuH'hnce of The Star. Georgetown, Sept. II, 1957. An old man. by the name of William Turner, who was in the habit of drinking to excess, fell into one of the caiial locks on Saturday night, about nine o'clock, and was drowned before he could be rescued. Coroner Woodward held an inquest over the body yesterday morning, when the jury returned a verdict of accidental drown ing We learn that th" verv best order prevailed in every pari of our city yesterday. Kven those hec tiotis where riot and disorder have made ttieir ap pearance nearly every Sabbath were quiet during the entire diy. This, we presume. Is one of the Pood results of the temporary inciease of the po ice force, and foreshadows the good which we might expect to result from proper and efficient police ret;ulations. One of the stone piers at the Little Falls bridge was topped out on Satuiduy. Several others ?ne pietty far advanced, and, if no accident occurs to letard the progress of the work, the whole are expect* J to be cornpl? ted by the close of autumn. Most if not all of the materials for th'- superstruc ture have already been prepared, and no time will 1m-lost after the completion of the piers in putting it in its proper place. Our harbor, this morning, looks quite lively. The number of vessels, large and small, receiving and discharging cargoes, is considerable.

An India:* Fight.?The St. Louis ltepubllean of the loth inst., says: The Inde|>endence Messenger, of Saturday last, under a flaming head, speaks of the arrival of a gentleman from the Plains, on the previous day, who renoited that he saw an express man with dispatches from Fort Kearney to Fort Leaven worth. He sti'ted that Col. Sumner had overtaken the Cheyenne Indians, retreating rapidly towards the Arkansas; that a severe battle ensued, imme diately after Col. Snmne.*came upon them; that the i-ctlon resulted "in the indiscriminate mas sacre of four or five hundred of the Indians, men, women and children." And when ;-ll this was done, it was gravely added that Sumner and his men we.e"sui?sistinge.itiiely upon bufialo meat." We must bt? |>erinitUd to doubt the correctnes:; of thlr news. It is hardly po slble that Col. Stun ner, who h. d really several very hard accounts to seLle with the Cheyenne*, would ye. so far forget liiirself ?s to make war upon women and children, es^tat^d. Wedoubt veiy much whether the bat tle w: s fought at all, but if it was. no olflcer of the American annv would have authorized or per mitted any slai'guter of women and children to uke pli'ce.
