The Union quotes the Buffalo Republic to show that the radical Democrats belonging to the Republican party organisation in New Y'ork unanimously condemn the acts of their party in the late New York Legislature, as being designed to build up fortunes for a band of speculators, rather than to subserve the pub lic interest.] The Vnion also rejoices over the fact that Messrs Henry O'Kielly, John J.

Tbe number before us is dis tinguished only by a manifestation of intense en mity to the Democratic party. The case for the prosecution in the trial of James P. Donnelly, for the murder of Albert S.

Jenkins of Georgia, to the Augusta Consti tutionalist, in reference to late letter of General Wm. Walker, concludes thus: 41 He has driven me to tbe alternative of sub mitting to Inevitable misconstruction of making unfavorable comments upon a letter addressed to myself, I choose the latter, declaring unequivo cally?first, that I wholly disapprove Gen. Win. Walker's contemplated invasion and conquest of Nicaragua; secondly, that the proposed revival of the African slave trade is abhoreut to me. I will add that Gen. Walker has tak?n a very un warrantable liberty with me?a liberty incon sistent with the sense of propriety which should regulate Intercourse between strangers?a liberty expressly interdicted by my plain declaration, that, its publication as a letter addressed to me. must depei.d upon my concurrence in his views." Giiat Mcsical Festival?It istruethat tbe great wizard of the violin, Vieuxtemps. js to give a concert here next Tuesday. We are pleased to hear it, for among the many European musical geniuses none has a greater name and fame, both as composer and musician, than Henri Vieux temps. He has won his way to the highest pin nacle in musical science and art, and has stamped his name indelibly on our musical eia. He will be accompanied by another great per former, already known to us?Thalberg. as re. nowned ou tbe piano as Vieuxtemps is upon the Violin. Madaine D'Angri, the renowned contralto, will take part in tbe approaching concert, which pro mises to excite unusual interest. Kocco. tbe famous basso, will also make his reappearance here since his return from Europe. A combination of such talent never apfteared toeether on one evening, either in this country- or perhaps in Europe.

The Viroixia Railboadi.?The Richmond Examiner believes that the \ irginia Legisla ture at its approaching wiion will refuse to appropriate for the completion of the partly constructed railroads on which she has already expended on aggregate 6f. we faney, near twenty millions of dollars. If it is to be so, better would it have been for her finances if she had never expended a dollar in that way. We. however, cannot realise that the Examiner can be correct in its impression, because it involves a policy far more suicidal than any that can possibly be adopted by 10 enlightened a body aa the Virginia Legislature. To stop the construc tion of the progressing roads of the State, will be to prostrate the energies and repress the en terprise of all interests and classes within her boundaries, depreciating the aggregate value of Virginia property one hundred times as much as the cost of the completion of the works in question can possibly be to her treasury. It is just in such times of commercial revul sions and decreasing prices of produce and prop erty that it behooves her State authorities to strain every nerve to ward off as much of the tendency of the times, from Virginia, as can be so warded off. It is their duty to see that her citizens have, us soon as possible, every feasible means at hand for prospering, despite the tendency ofthe times explained above. The fact that through mismanagement, ex travagance, and. indued, a general want of integrity in connection with the affairs of Northern railroads, the value of the stocks of all of them have run down recently to very low figures, is no, rcasonjwhy, properly conducted, most of them would not prove profitable invest ments. They charge notoriously too little for freight and travel, which the Virginia railroad companies do not do. They also pay too much in the way of salaries and squander money 011 unnecessary employees, neither of which things is done by Virginia railroad companion. The system of railroad management at the North is as different as can be from that in Virginia, and the^sult of investments in Northern roads, as managed, is by no mean3 a fair criterion from which to draw conclusions as to the proba ble result of investments in Virginia railroads. Even if the Examiner* conclusion that State subscriptions to railroads are invariably gifts rather than loans to be repaid in time, (as is not the ease in Virginia.) the State would be greatly the gainer, by steadily completing the system of public works on which she has al ready expended twenty millions of dollars. Who does not remember the throes of debt, temporary repudiation, bankruptcy, Ac., into which Pennsylvania was plunged through the connection of her finances with an extensive system of internal improvement ? Yet no one can fail to realize that she did well to go through all, financially, that befel her on that account; for thereby has every acre of her soil advanced incalculably in value. It will not be striking far above the mark to say that for every dollar expended by Pennsylvania in it. ternal improvements she is?her people are? at this moment one hundred dollars richer than she would otherwise have been Unlike Penn sylvania. the funds of Virginia raised for inter nal improvements have not been plundered? every dollar having been honestly disbursed for the purpose designed?nor is there the least reason to fear that any of her appropriations for internal'improvements yet to be made, will be misapplied. She has csoaped, and bids fair to escape the rocks on which Pennsylvania's internal improvement system struck, and stuck fi.r some time. To hesitate now, when near the end of her expenditures lor internal improve ments, would be about as wise as for a man to burn down bis ten thousand dollar house, fin ished all to hanging the doors and windows and painting, to get rid of the expense of thus com pleting the edifice. Surely the approaching Virginia Legislature are not quite so daft as such a course would prove them to be ' The Hotse or Pair?> Jt Not rse ?We ac knowledge the receipt of the following note from Messrs. Pairo Jt Nour.se : Washisgtox, Sept. 23, 1^57. W. D Walla CM, Kmj ?D*nr Sir : The edito rial in lb*' Star of to-day. we think, dors u* in jnxtice; and feeling contident that yon have no desire to injure us, we respectfully invite you to call at our utlice at your ea lies! convenience, and afford oh an opportunity of exhibiting to you a statement of our affairs, with surh explanations an, we think, will give you a more just Apprecia tion of our true position. Very truly and respectfully yours, 1'airo A. Nocrxk. As the object of the editorial to which Messrs. P. A N. refer, was not to obtain information concerning their affairs for our own satisfaction, we do not perceive any good end to be accom plished by the devotion of a few minutes or hours of our time to such an investigation as they propose. Our purpose was to enforce the necessity for the amplest security that in their liquidation every dollar of their property shall be devoted to the end of paying off their liabilities at par. with as little delay as possible. If the public can be satisfied that their affairs are in such a train of settlement, the sacrifices of their de positors will be much lighter than under the impressions which now prevail in the public mind- Their deed of assignment was not on record yesterday morning, and the fact that it is not yet recorded serves to prolong the public uneasiness in the matter. No individual in spection of their books and statements can j.os sibly serve to satisfy their injured debitors. They should promptly call a meeting of their depositors to the end that the latter may agree on a resident trustee to be associated with the non-resident gentleman selected by themselves to liquidate their affairs. Nothing short of such a step will restore public confidence in their case. As the matter stands the depositors regard their own affairs (money) as being still wholly out of their control, direct or indirect, and are by no means satisfied with that state of things. They believe that simple justice to them requires that they shall have at least as much influence in directing the manner of the liquidation, as the failing house. We will gladly publish any detailed state ment of their affairs with which Pairo Nourse may favor us. A Vert Imhoutaxt Land Orrir* Decisiox. A recent decision of the General Land Office concerning the right of railroad companies, under certain circumstances, to lands donated by Congress, greatly affects the public interest. The case may be stated as follows : The State of Michigan appropriated to the '? Amboy, Lansing and Traverse Bay Railroad Company'' certain lands accorded to her for railroad pur]>oses by the act of June 3, IHifi That is to say, so much of the lands then dona ted to her as ap]?ertain to the construction of a proposed railroad from Amboy, by liillsdale and Lansing, to some point on or near Traverse Bay. The company very recently filed at the Gen eral Land Office the map and location of a route designed to secure them the land* in question The map, however, waa found to describe a zig zag route some 345 miles long, instead of nearly a straight route 260 miles long?the actual dis tance between the Axed termini. The General Land Office is also in the receipt of a protest from the authorities of the Grand Rapids and Indian Railroad tympany, submitting that the nominal route of the petitioning company ha?t in part, never been surveyed by them, and is lo cated where the actual surveys of the objecting company prove that the construction of a rail road is next to impossible. Tho Commissioner of the General Land Office decides that he cannot set apart the lands as re quested, unless the demand be founded upon actual location, survey and staking off on tbe ground; and that without a map founded ob such a basis, it is not within the legal compe tence of his office to act favorably on the appli cation. The deflection of the route, too, is held to be so great as not fairly to bring the application within the iutent of the law. Advices rfco* Superwtexdixt McGraw's Party.?The Interior Department have advices from Mr. McGraw, the Superintendent of the expedition constructing the Fort Kearney, South Pass and Iioney Lake wagon road, dated at Scott's Bluffs, Nebraska Territory, (about fifty miles east of Fort Laramie,) on the 22d August ultimo. His party were getting on well. They had spent some time in making repairs of the road at Ash Hollow and Scott's Bluffs, both of which are perhaps the worst portion of the wholo line. These repairs are likely greatly to facilitate the progress of the 2,000 wagons said to be on the road (going west) behind the constructing party. All were well.

Tub Shipwreck.?Our exchanges come to us full of nothing but accounts of the ship wreck of the Central America. The indefatig able newspaper men of New York, not content with publishing a dozen or two doten versions of the affair, must need spread before their readers fifty or a hundred such accounts, as though the world thinks of nothing just now but that subject. The moral of the manner in which the New York papers seem to gloat over the affair appears to us to be. that its newspa per readers arc constitutionally devoted to the horrible in literary matters?a state of uiind into which they have been duly inducted by tho style of newspaper men they have bad among them for some years past. Promoted?Wo hear, on the Avenue, of the following promotions in tho General Land Office recently made.

The New York Evening Post says of the debut of Miss May, on Tuesday night, in New York city: "Among the large and interested audience that greeted Miss May's appearance last evening at Mblo'n Saloon, we noticed several literary and musical celebrities? Bancroft. Fry. R S. Willis,

\ e.^tvali and others. The good-nature which promises to reign this season in all our musical circles was abundantly testified. Miss May was warmly applauded, arid the gratifying'but bur densome honor of the encoreonly omitted in def ence to the embarrassment and apparent fatigue of the n'tbulantt. Miss May is quite young, tall and slender in person. Willi features rather pleasing than hand some ; her manner, naturallv enough, was deci dedly embarassed. Her voice is a pure and me tallic soprano, of warm tone. deficient in the ex treme upper register, but with some very sweet ringing notes in the middle and lower range though even here they are not quite equable in power." n The Herald says. ''Miss May possesses a soprano voice of mtich richness; her notes are clear and bell-toned: her intonation pure and delicate; but her efforts last night did not afford a fair opportunity of judging of her full power. With more cultivation, and a little practice in the peculiar methods of the stare we think she will make her inaik in opera Her voice has a fine compass, capable of dolnc for more than she attempted last night. She%anj? with remarkable ease, bringing out the highest notes without strain or apparent effort." The Tribune says : '? The success of Mi-s May last night was llat fiattering. She was called back after her pieces and wtiat the Italians denominate irj parts out of HW in a sin?er, namely, the voice, much admired Now, let her toil until she gets thoroughly to the satisfaction of people the hardest to please the 100th part " F ' llie B I'lie Impress says : "Miss Mays first piece was the aria ' Frnani lnvola nna, and she did not appear to be alto gether self-possessed Some hesitation and cold ness marred the delivery o' the prelude, with which she b.'San ; it was given without expres sion, but With pet feet precision. The sound of her voice, however, seemed to have an admirable effect upon her nerves, and as she came to the melody she sang with spirit and style_<loin.' full justice in execution to her voice which is certainly a remarkable one. ft appeari to be an oryau of almost unlimited capacity?full pure tone to the highest note. fa the second piece K i gold to sang with Sigrior TaffaneJlo?her voice appeared to ^reai advantage, making execution easy in the sudden transitions. In this piece there appeared more of cnideness, however?as ir the organ had not yet attained the cultivation ?i< ? 11 "u*cep?>ble. In the other pieces Miss May achieved a decided triumph, and the audience warmed to enthusiasm?paying the ?ady the awkward and equivocal compliment of 'calling her out.' The ? first appearance' was successful in every way, and was before a full house, Jupiter Pluvius to the contrary notwith standing. ' The Mirror says: " When she appeared she was received with long continued applause, acknowledging it in a quiet and elegant manner, free from every thin ' like attectailon. She was beautifully dressed ami her whole air was fresh and charming. She had not sung more than a few lines of the opening cavatina, when every doubt as to her musical at tainments vanished. and as she proceeded through her pieces, it itecame evident that we had before us an artiste of great abilities. # # # One thing is certain, we have no other American songstress like Miss May. with so beautiful cor rect and classical a style; so flue and perfect a voice; and we do not wonder that with Rossini Auber Halvey and other friends said, that she had all the >? ifts that Heaven could give a sin-er The rest remained with herself alone " B " ID*The surviving officers of the Central Amer ica have published in the New York papers the usual form of "protest," in proof of the loss of the steamer and the property on board for the benefit of all those having insurance on the spe cie on board. This will lead to the promot pay ment by the Insurance Companies of all amounts of loss which have been proved. Bloody Tragkd* iji Texas.?We find the following in the Dallas Herald of the 29th ult.: "It becomes our duty to record one of the most desperate and heart-rending tragedies that have ever been enacted in this region of the country John Rfb'n-on. living some four or five miles from Birdville. Tarrant county, on Friday morn ing of last week, without previous provocation as we are Informed, almost without an intimal tion of his fiendish intentions, shot and killed George and James Anderson, brothers of his wife, then attempted the life of his wife. and. failing in that, proceeded deliberately to his neighbor's, old man Sublett, a distance of nearlv two miles, and while the old man was beg^n* for mercy, shot him dead. ? ** " Returning to within a short distance of his home Robinson finished this horrid and unnatu ral tragedy by placing the muzzle of his gun against his own forehead, and pushing the trig ger with his rain-rod, put an end to his own life instantly.
