JUT" A correspondent says that when Donnelly made his late escape from prison, in scaling the outer walls, he was set upon by the Sherifl'sdog, but he grasped the noble brute in desperation and beat in bis skull. Yet, this was scarcely done, ere the alarm bell tolled, and the court house yard was crowded with an excited throng. He mixed with the crowd and got away, but was recaptured. He said to the officers, on bis return, " Gentlemen, If I had got on that vessel, all New Jeisey would not have been able to take me alive again The men there would hare sold thetr lives dearly, it necessary."' At another pause he said : " This little arrangement has cost a fortune, though it has not cost me a cent."

Donnelly dies to-morrow. f Those fond of real, modern tragedy are following with eager attention a singular mur der trial now going on at Evreux, France. The case is briefly this: A ip i*ried man. of the name of Gillot, moving in good society, was suspected by Madame de Jeufosse of paying improper attentions to her daughter. She forbade him her house, where he had been for some time a familiar visitor He tried to continue an infrig'je with the daughter, of which he publicly boasted, by leaving letters for her by a certain tree in the park and near the chateau. His nocturnal visits to tbe park irrita ted .Madame de Jeufosse. a highly respectable and noble lady. She ordered a faiibful servant to watch for him with a gun Her two sons seem to have approved and eon Armed this order. The servant obeyed orders, and shot M. Giilot in one ot his nightly visits. The wounded man died arler several hours of suffering and groan ing Within ear-shot of the chateau, without re. ce'iving any assistance from its inmate*, except a enp of water brought by one of the domestics Neither the Indv nor her sons appear to re?fr? t their part iu this lia^ed?\ which sma< ks strange ly. in modern civilized France, of old feudalism and of the last developments of our own Kansas manners and customs.

Mowry. Delegate elect, bn.? ju9t hecn published, accompanied by a map from explorations by A. B Gray and other*, .The memoir gives a hiil torical sketch of Ariiola. showing conclusively, from ancient Spanish nnd Mexican records, that it wn? once a fl^uri-hing Spanish colony, rich in agricultural and mineral wealth. It proceeds to show, from official data?con?isting of Report? of C<d Em??ry, Gray Lieut- Parke, Hon. J. R. Bartlett. and other??that the country, so far from being worthies? and unfit for settlement, is in natural advantages one of the finest portions of our national domain. Upon this point, the statements of the memoir are conclusive, and Lieut Mowry i3 entitled to great credit tor the manner in which he has presented the evidence upou this much-dispu ted point. The claims of Arizona to an immediate Ter ritorial organization are set forth in term? which admit of no denial. No statement is made without apparent full and reliable evi dence of its entire correctness. Tho statistics with regard to the mineral wealth of Arizona, especially in silver, roust attract extensive notice. Lieut. Mowry shows that the early statements of the Spanish popu lation. as well as the prediction^pf Humboldt and Ward, are more than fulfilled by the dis coveries of the past two years. The population of Arizona is about 8,0(10. and is rapidly iucreasing. The tido of emi gration, which yearly sots toward the Pacific, will l>e greatly augmented the coming year by the disasters, in the commercial world, of 1857. This emigration must pass through Arizona, as the great route through the South Pass is closed by the Mormon war. Under the liberal induce ments offerod to settler* by the donation of mineral and agricultural lands of Arizona, pro vided in the bill for its organization, a large population will settle in the new Territory, and give us at an early day a thriving and wealthy State on our Mexican frontier. The necessity for tho early organization of Arizona seems to be admitted by all parties, and the bill will probably become a law early in the session. Lieut. Mowry. who has been indefatigable in hid labors to extend informa tion in regard to the Territory, is laboring hard to be admitted to his seat as delegate, and claims to have been electcd by a unanimous vote. Mr. Malloby'h Resolution.?Yesterday, Senator Mallory reported a resolution, from the Senate's Naval Affairs Committee, postponing somewhat longer the time within which the officers affected injuriously by the action of the late Naval Retiring Board may be restored to the service or advanced in position in it, as the case may be. AVe find that this movement is translated by some of the renominated and their friends to mean an effort on the part of the Department to obstruct the Senate's fiction on the cases of those gentlemen. Nothing could be more unfounded and unjust than any such suspicion. It was a step rendered nece. sary by the desire of members of the Senate themselves to obtain the opportunity to look closely into the individual recordsof them (the renominated) ere passing on their cases. <?ur impression, after seeking information on the subject, is, that the Navy Department bad nothing whatever to do with the introduction of the resolution Tiie Existing State of Affairs in Kan sas.? In the midst of the current conflicting accounts from Kansas, nothing is mure difficult than to be able to discriminate between the true and the false On all side* prejudice and heated imagination serve so to misrepresent the truth, as that the most patient and cautious reader has great difficulty in knowing how much or how little to belierc in tho way of news from that quarter. Our friends of the Journal of Commrrrt are in the habit of de voting much more time and labor to the doty of investigating Kanra? accounts than we can possibly spare to that end so we pla;e much confidence in their judgment concerning theio Finding in their paper of the day before yes terday a caretully prepared summary of the latest Kansas news, we spread it before the Htnr' ? readers?as follows : RkPKSTANT A>D NoN-REPfSTAXT PoLiTi ci^N* ?It is know n to ail who have Vwph familiar will* the history of the Top?-ka movement, thai | the prominent actoi* ii< that ticaton have acfed j uniformly under :he advic e aod direction of Re | publican politician* in the N? w Kngland and other Northern State*, and with the view of sub serving the interests of that political organiza tion, rather than with reference to the question of freedom or slavery in Kansas To this end they have not only initiated reliellion against the government, and embraced every opportunity to prevent the execution of the laws, but Lave ab stained from participating in the elections, when by their own adrm*si.>u they had such a majority ?.f the cl-etnr* an to give I hero Ihe power to ojieii the way for ihe establishment or a Free Stat* government, and thus settle at once and forever, ihe vexed question, so long agitated throughout the country, and still serving the purpose of po litical agitators. Keceni disclosures made hyCbarle* Robinson, the pretended Governor of Kansas under the Te peka movement. Indicate a change of tactics among the patriots for whose lieneflt the Topeka machine has thus far been worked, and a dispo sition to abandon their attitude of rebellion, and take part hereafter in the elections ordered under the l<e?onipton Constitution A delcate con vention of Ihe Free State men has been Tn session at Lawrence, on two or three different occasions, to deliberate on this subject, and at an adjourned meeting of this cou vent ion held on the 2U1 Inst., "Gov.- Robinson In the chair, a war in debate was had on the question whether the Free State men should vote for State officer* on the 1th Jan uary .During a recess of the convention, a mass nlectin" was organized to consider the same ques tion Majority and minority reports were pre sented by committees chosen for the pur|Kme, and Robinson is reported by the correspondent of the IJoston Journal, in which we find a v--ry full account of the proceedings, to have spoken as follows 1 " He was ready to go as f*r a* any man In re sisting tyranny; but the people would not fight the federal troops now, and if they would, it would be the height of folly. It would In-like the bull that attempted to butt the locomotive off the track, and was annihilated Had that bull pos sessed half so much discretion as valor, he would have torn up a rail or two with his boms, and let the locomotive run itself oft . (Laughter ) So it might l?e mlnr for us to resist this government after it should be established; Inil It was th common sense course for us to rip up the rail, and let the in run t hrtitxf Ire* off the track He said he had received letters from prominent fi iends of fiee Kansas in the North, mgiug lis to go into that election, anil thus leave us no means left for getting all the machinery and forms of g jvernmn.t into our hands. He only desired to obtain possession of that government to kill It. should ''ongres* admit us under if, weie never t qua J yoreuter upon the dutiesof those office*. The question lu this warfaie was not whetln r we should seem consistent, but whether we should ?"?? and gain our rights." According to th<* statement above given, It seems (hat Hi* men "in the North who pull the wire* for the Free State men In Kansas, have concluded that it I* lie*t not to fight the Federal troop-;, simply for the reason that " like the bull that attempted to butt the locomotive off the trackthev would most likely be "auiiihilalid." This certainly evinces a large degree of ^.ood s?*nse on the part of the Republican manager* of Kansas ..tt.?irs, who. af er all, seem to act nearer iio to the adaye that "discretion is the betfer part ?p ,or<" than some of their adherent* in the territory. These latter, it is fair to presume, 11 ve believed tbat the coustant advice and direc tion they have received, as to shedding the blood troops, and making Kann? fr?-e rnu Z\'7 .Krnw' T*H ~r'ou?iy intended, and merely for "buncombe;" and to sustain a des,>erate political cause.

The patriots in Kansas are quite as unable to agree upon the best mode of resisting the Gov ernment. as their Republican prototypes in the States. We are told, by the correspondent frrnn whom we have quoted, that the debate was per sonal and violent. He uyi: "The heated discussions to-dav assumed a per sonal character more tban once. Some rather se vere passages at armsoccurred between Governor Robinson jnd .Messis. Thatcher, NValdeii, Whit man. and Phillips " It Is not strange that men who have been nrompted to violent measutes and action against others, ,md whose acts have been characterized Sy resistance to all lawful authority, should be come impatient of restraint even from their own political friends, and resort to conduct unbecom ing and disreputable on all occasion*. There is a considerable touch of chivalry among these lovers of freedom in Kansas. For instance, one Stratton, who came into the Con vention fresh from the foray at Fort Scott and th?* killing ot a United States Marshal /Mr L y tl<?*,) delivered the following precious bit of gas conade: ?'W^have resolved long enough; the time has come for act ion. The time has come when, like Texas, we must run up the lone star; and as we can no longer get our rights in the Union. main tain and defend them as a sovereign State out of the Uuion. Hireat sensation, and applause from some parts of the hall.) "A sovereign State out of the Union,'* then, seems to be the Idea of the Lawrence Conven tionists, comprising, as we suppose, the Mower of the Black Republicans of that Territory. The Democracy op TtiK North ?Yesterday we took occasion briefly to mention the fact that an effort to pledge a caucus of the Demo cracy ot' the Legislature of Ohio against the policy of the President, on the subject of the admission of Kansas into the Union upon the Lecompton Constitution, bad proved a signal failure. To-day we find, from the T*finny I ? vania>/, that the corresponding efforts to de bauch the political integrity of the Democracy of Pennsylvania have also quite as signally failed. That journal says in that connection : " The Democratic papers of this State are not only warm and zealons in the support of the Kan sas platform laid down bv Mr. Buchanan in bis message, but they are discussing the principles enunciated In that document with a mental force and ability, which must end in a most thorough and complete victory for the Democratic party in this 5tate, if the opposition dare to make the support or rejection of the President's Kansas policy an issue before the people. The attempt made by certain disappointed men to mislead and debauch the Democracy of Pennsylvania, to abolitionize the party and hand it over to the Black Republicans, has most ''signally and sig nificantly ' failed. The mine was sprung too soon, and as a consequence the plotters have l?ern blown into the camp of the enemy with black ened and damaged reputations, and political character* that serve as a warning to all over ambitions aspiiants in the future ?' Numinatei?.?We have every reason to be lieve that the President has sent to the Senate the nomination of Captain Reynold* for resto ration to bis former position of a paymaster in the army of the United States, from which he was dropped some time since under the im pression that he was a defaulter, declared to he unfounded in the result of a long trial at law whereby he was adjudged to be the credit or?not the debtor?of the Government. Some months ago, we explained.all these fact- in de tail. taking occasion to show, at the came time, that the President and Secretary of War in their action upon CaptAin R.'s ease had fairly earned the gratitude of all who desire to see the principle of strict justice invariably ad ministered in the affairs of the General Gov ernment. Bnt for the fact that there has been no vacancy in the list of the paymasters >n the scrvice, the consummation of this measure of reparation?Capt R 's re-nomination to the Senate?would not have been so long postponed evidently. . A Pressing Necessity ?Tne necessity for the prompt enactment of the proposed increase of the Army of the United States is quite a? pressing, so far as the public interest is con cerned. at tbi* moment, a- that for the iseut of Treasury Notes. The exigencies of the state of affairs in Utah make it imperatively necessary that the troops now in Kansas or nearly the whole of them. ehall proceed to the reinforce ment of Col. Jobnson'i command, with as little delay as possible ; which, unless the pr< po?e<l new regiments aro immediately ordered by Congress to be raised. will leave that Territory entirely without effective military protection ; at a time, too, when the necessity for the pre. enee of a considerable body of troop? there wa never before so great. The Army in Utah ?The Secretary of War is understood to have l>een very busy of late with the consummation of preparations to re inforce the army in I tab at the earliest possi ble moment after the spring shall have opened His plans to that end were finally and fully con suuituated yesterday. That they will prove entirely effective, may be concluded from the success of his measures lor the repression of the threatened Indian hostilities in the vicinity of Silver Lake Minnesota Territory, and the completeness of the necessary arrangements for the present Utah campaign, as originally designed. . All Able asp Interesting Speech.?We had intended to republish iit e.rten*o the speech delivered by Mr. Robert Tyler, at the late meeting of the Democracy of Philadelphia, <in Jaynes's Hall.) called to respond to the Presi dent's annual message. Hut it turns out that our space at command will barely suffice to en able us thus to oall attention to it. as embracing one of the most forcible defences of the posi tion of the President and the Democracy, upon the question of the admittance of Kansas into the Union on the Lecompton Constitution, so far called out by the extraordinary attitude assumed by Senator Douglas. No speech on the subject delivered in Congress, as powerful as some of tbem have been, will fall with more force and effect on the public mind. Touching them in a Iknker Point.?An impression is gaining ground, that the honora ble House of Representatives are just now manifesting, individually, a lirely sense of the disagreeability of an empty exchequer. On the 1th inst., some $4'!j,oon is said to have been due to the members, ns compensation, mileage, Ac., of which the Sergeant-at Arms had, so far, only managed to obtain about $54HHki to divide among them. Asa class, no other gentlemen stand more in need of all the " ready' legally due to them, and no others will be more embarrassed ly eveu the necessary delay until the new Trea sury notes may be ready to be paid over to them. Roans News.?It turns out that the story, per telegraph, of a battle between Jim Lane and his fellow outlaws of Kansas and the troops of the United States, wherein the latter were represented to have been defeated? tbo begin ning of the cifil war M earnestly urged?if not invoked?by Gov Walker and Senator Doug las, is a mere fiction The St. Louis HrpuUi rati of the 3d contains ? despatch from Bonne ville, received the day before, saying?is (jviet tv Kan.m* Anri vKti.?The newly elected Senators from Minnesota (Messrs.
