WASQ15GT0!* Ba*k NotES.-t-Tho merobnntt of the District are of courserwceiving our Dis trict currency as usual. x We are also glad to be r.ble to state that the recent suspension of our c ty note-issuing banks will in no way in juriously affect those in trade hero On the contrary, the result must be an immediate re lief to the money market of the District of Co lumbia. and a consequent rise in the value of city property. Our firm belief is?and no other person has had a better opportunity of kuowing the condi tion of the banks of this locality.?that with the exception of the house of Pairo & Nourse, which still refrains from so arranging its affairs (after having voluntarily gone into liquidation) as to satisfy the minds of its creditors, that every other District banking institution is perfectly solvent?as much so as any bank in New York. Those of them suspending were driven to that step for the security of our business men. Had tLey continued to pay out specie in the present state of the monetary affairs around us, and with their depositors nearly all affected by the current panic, the en I would have soon been a draft on them for the total amount of their lia bilities. which would have left them with simply their accruing assets. Or, in other words, without the means of accommodating a single business customer. In the meannhile, those whom it is their duty to accommodate?those in trade here?would have found collections im possible: because, in snch times, too many debtors will not pay. if they can postpone so doing We know from conversation with some of the heaviest men in trade in Washington, of the existence of this difficulty. The suspension of our banks, however, is the remedy for this evil, becauso it enables them to accommodate their regular customers, as we explain above. The Pkoposed N ew Fii.ibcsteiuko Expe dition.?The following brief extract from the Washington correspondence of the Richmond E/uj/tirer (dated the 2r?d instant) explains the measures taken here by the representatives of the Governments most immediately interested in the preservation of *he integrity of the neu trality law of the United States : " The new movement of the Central America States, through their representatives near this Government, on the subject of filibustering, is attracting attention, and is the theme of eeneral conversation amon^ all classes ?rf politician* here. It appears that these Southern Republics have their spies through our country, to watch Gen. Walker and his associates, and they have report ed that an armed expedition is nearly ready to I make a descent on Nicaragua On this informa tion these States have instructed their Minister here to make the demand for protection which thev did several da\ s a^o This document was drawn up by Seuor Don Antonio Jose deYrisarri, Minister Plenipotentiary from Guatemala, and Sresented at the State Department by Don l.uis Iolina, the Charge d'Affaires from Costa Kica " We may add that it is generally understood that every necessary and proper assurance of the determination of tho Administration to pre vent a recurrence of the filibustering acts which disgraced the United States a ye ?r or two ago. was given. And. further, that it is also be lieved in well informed quarters that, taking warning by the failure of proclamations and criminal prosecutions to accomplish the end de signed, the Navy of the United States will be promptly used in this connection whenever that step may be necessary. The At.EXANDr.iA Basks yesterday paid out specie, for change only. We hear that they do not call the refusal to pay the drafts of their depositors, and the holders of considerable sums in their notes, in specie, a suspension. The business community, however, comprehend well that their explanation amounts to but " a dis tinction without a difference." The Alexandria Gazette of this morning says I of that city's monetary affairs yesterday, and kindred matters: '?At o'clock, a meeting of the directors of the I Farmers', Exchange, and Old Dominion banks I was held, but no definite a< tion wa.< taken, and at U o'clock the doors of the banks were opened. I and business went on as usual It was, however, I determined, that should there be a * run' upon the I banks, they would at once suspend specie pay I nient, the (lirectors deeming it more advisable to I suspend than have their vaults drained of all the I specie, (which must have been the case, this I beino the most accessible point ou which brokers ] could make immediate demands) and thereby I make resumption more d (limit There w is, I however, no ?run* made on any of the hanks, and I five's and ten's were cashed at the counters, and I there was more quiet in th? afternoon. In I Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, | then* was a general suspension among the banks. [See telegraphic despatches for particular* ] The t-'aruieis* and Exchange banks at Richmond and Norfolk continued to pay out specif, but it was thought that they could hot sustain ibe run that will inevitably lie made upon them, and their suspension is looked for. Exchange on \ew"> ork and gold are very scarce, aud the rates are ex ceedingly high. " P S Since the above was in type, a despatch Winchester has been received, which states that the Bank of Winchester, Hank of the Valley, a id the Branch of the farmers' Bank at that place, have all suspended." In another article it also says: " The banks (of Alexandria) have not suspended though they determined not to allow any run to b~ made on them, whU'h, however, was not at tempted. The community have full confidence in the banks, and there was a desire on the part of the business men yesterday that they should I suspend, thereby protecting themselves, l?enetlt I ing community, and rendering resumption easier. ??1'. S Hinee tl?e above, we have sun a peti I tion, numerously signed by the business rneu ot the city, and which will be presented to the Di | rectors this morning, aiskiug the Banks to suspend I sjiecie payment for the present.'' Our friend of the Gazrttr has queer notion? ol' what a bank suspension is, evidently. How ever. we must attribute them to an honest pridf of locality. Nothing more. Sii AsrEn TitAs the Sharp Practice.?Pout or five citizens of Washington, debitors with the House of Pairo A Nourse, getting wind o! their alignment earliest, instantly caused the proper papers to be made out. and one of then I traveled day and night to St. Paul, Minnesota, 1 arriving there a few hours in advance of the per' son traveling a little more leisurely, who wai intrusted with the deed of trust for record in that city ; where, il will be remembered, is sit uated some $76,000 worth of their assigned pro perty. The deed of trust is said to have been presented for record ere the ir.k used in record I ing the attachment was dry. The amount the | attachment represented was some $12,000 in all i The race was a hard one as well as a very Ionj one, and the winners deser\e credit lor theii sagacity, energy and perseverance. We hear that other Washington depositors despatched attachments to be laid upon tht j property in and near Leavenworth city, Kau ! sa* Territory, conveyed in tho deed of trust ol I the sume house. We have not yet heard the result of their effort. Ea-Pbesii>e>t Tyler writes to tho Rich I motid south that his Administration did not expend $600,000, us alleged byUen. Pillow, foi the (luil?ery) of newspapers in Maine, to bring about the acceptance of the settlement of the Northeastern boundary question, nor any other amount, lie reminds the public tha $:i0.000 is the highest sum ever yet appropri ated in a session of Congress for the secret ser vice fuiid. aud takes occasion to explain the manner of its use, as follows: " I will take occasion to add that the fund, al | tho'ij^h called secret, Is as public in most of its outlays as any other fund belonging to the gov ernment. li in applicable to the many Items growing out of the necessities of foreign mis sions and the consular establishment of the Uni ted States, which no specific appropriation could well cover. They aie contingent, the very term implying their uncertainty. The expenditures for these contingencies enter into the general ac counts of the government, and are annually pub lished. and absorb a Urg? portion of the fund. It often happen* that not ? dollar in withdrawn from the fund for any confidential object of the Rovernrnent. Such confidential objects some men intervene In our intercon'se with foreign eonntrle*. and sometimes have their origin with. In our own llmlta-oontingencie* whiAi it may 11 tll?<ime to disclose, but which ?re ia^rntelv connected with the preservation of peace md quietude ." , Financial Matters at IIoue.?Everything w quiet in the way of money matters in Washf ington city to-day, there being no run whatever ^>n any of the banVs, public or private. The community are evidently already reconciled to make the be9t of the condition of the financial affaire of nearly the whole country. We are informed that specie is obtainable on the street for the notes of the District of Columbia banks at from 2 to 2J per centum discount, only. We mentioned yesterday that the Bank of Wash ington was redeeming its 5's in specie, and should have added (though not then knowing the fact) that it was so redeeming them only when presented singly and evidently to obtain change for the parties holding thetQ. Apropos : To-morrow and next day the army of Government employees here will be paid their month's pay in specie. The Union very properly suggests that they be paid in dollar ?nd two-and-a-half pieces. Such a course will prove great relief, indeed, to the business com munity here, for we are vsry sure that the gold thus obtained will not be sold out of the Dis trict by its recipients, as seems to be antici pated by more or less nervous and suspicious persons. Even if disposed to speculate after that fashion, the popular odium which will fall on any person disposed to venture on such a course, will surely prove a check upon it. In one day the naino of every such Government employe would necesfarily be in everybody's mouth; for all in trade in Washington know who are invariably paid off in specic, and who arc not so paid oft. To-day, all the District banks have deter mined not to redeem their issue (of any size) in specic, at present. The Bank of Commerce, Georgetown?which has never stopped rcdcemtng its issue in specie without a limit up to this morning?will come into tho same arrangement, and aet in concert with all the banks here. The Wau in India.?As absorbed as we all are iti the condition of affairs at home just now, the East Indian war continues to attraot its share of public attention, because in it is wrapped up much of the futuro of American commerce. End as that war may, its result must be tho extension of our trade rn the East far pa^t the anticipation of the most sanguine among us six months ago. Should Britain's authority Be prostrated there (of which wo entertain no an ticipation. however.) India would become to the Initcd States a second California, and almost in as short a period of time as the commerce of tho Pacific coast became a leading feature in the trade of the Atlantic United States End as it may, the war must loosen in some measure England s grasp on tho commerce of India; and that cannot be loosened without measura bly admitting us to a share in it. The Sai.e of Prk-emptionx under the Act of 1641.?The thirteenth section of the pre-emption law of 1841 prohibits the sale of pre-emptions, its design being to prevent the presentation of fraudulent pro-emption claims. An inquiry has been made at tho General Land Office, whether sales of lands entered under that law, made before the patent may issue, will invalidate the entry and lead to its cancel lation. It has been held, that if a party has complied with all the requisites of the law, and proved up and made an actual entry, the Gen eral Land Office will take no cognizance of any such sale, nor regard it as an impediment to the pre-emptor, unless fraud be imputed ; in which case, upon its being reopened, the fact of the sale would bo regarded as a legitimate element of investigation. The City's Acckiiso Interest.?We have every reason to know that the interest to be due on the stocks of Washington city on the 1st October proximo, will be promptly paid at the Bank of \\ ash ington. in specie, on demand This is as it should be ; there being Corpora tion funds more than sufficient in the custody of that Bank, and their payment in spccie be ing neeessary to sustain the credit of tho city, which at this moment is as prosy>erons (finan cially) as any in the Union. Fn k Na\ al Courts of Inqimrt.? Court No. 1 were to-day engaged in reviewing the record of the testimony taken in the case of Lieut, lurner, (which has been long on trial.) To-morrow, his defence is to be read. Before Court No. 2, the case of Lieut. Bis sell being still before them, Capt. Adams, Com modore Perry and Engineer-in-Chief Martin were examined in the applicant's behalf, ere the fitar went to press. Before Court No. 3, the case of Lieut. Reill being still on trial, the cross-examination of Capt. Rodgers was completed, and Lieuts Cooper and Cowes were examined on tho Gov ernipent'i behalf. The Mexican Boundary Scrvet.?This morning, Col. Lniory. the U. S. Commissioner for running the Mexican boundary, formally turned over to the Interior Department the official maps and papers connected with thai work. The commission adjourns to-morrow, and the Mexican Commissioner and his corps ol engineer assistants, we hear, leave Washington on the day after, for their own country. The Corporation Salaries.?We hear thai the Bank of Washington will pay on demand the salaries of the cily officials, due on the lsl proximo, in city currency, which will be avail able in all ordinary business transactions. Appointed.?Mr. Wm. H. Hope, of Pa., ha* been appointed to prepare the descriptions tc accompany the drawings in the mechanical por tion of the Patent Office Report?salary $1,800 per annum.

But it was too late; the moment the verdict was promulgated people rushed out of the Court House, crying ''Wilful uiuiderl" The family of the prisoner heard the news; it came with crushing weight upon them The gray-haired father of Donnelly sat by hi* side when the verdict was pronounced. It had no viable effect upon him then, but he lies at this moment moaning upon his bed, permitting no one to enter his room. He has expected hi* son's acquittal all through the trial, and the filial de noum'Ht has coiue upon him with a terrible shock. The Jnry tb?m*elve? were affected ; the fbreman with difficulty gave utterance to the verdlnt, and it was only after the Judge had said " Louder,'' and it was repeated, that It was un derstood. ' " Thus this lengthy trial is finally brought to a close What will lie the future disposition of Donnelly it i*, of course, impossible to say. A great deal of sympathy exists for him here: he is a young man of tine appeaiance. Tbe evidence against him was crushing, and tbe opiuion is general that the verdict wa* a righteous one. HI* counsel express a determination to carry the case befote the Supreme Court. If they obtain a writ from the Chancellor, they will present it, with their bill of exceptions, to the Court ou the see. oud Tuesday ill October, and have the record of

the trial plat ed before the Court of last resoit. They claim that their exceptions to the Judge's charge were well taken, and that it wan a very unfair one towards tbe prisoner. The Supreme Court. (Jeneral Term, meets on the first Tuesday in November, when. If the case is carried up, it will be argued. Unless a stay of proceedings is obtained, Donnelly will be sentenced on the re assembling of the Court in October." Rather Cool?A Mr Taylor, of Cohoes, N.
