Tnx St Lawre.xce Hotel Tkaoedt.?The trial of Thomas Washington Smith, for the mur der of Richard Carter, President of the Taiuaqua Bank, at the St. Lawrence Hotel, Philadelphia, nome time since, was concluded on Monday, and given to the jury, who did not, however, agree upon a verdict until Tuesday morning, when thev came into Court and rendered a verdict of acquittal on the ground of insauity. His sister immediately made application to the Court to l>e allowed to take charge of him, and the matter is to be argued to-day. It is understood that when the jury first went out, they stood ten for acquit tal for insanity, and two for acquittal without the insanity clause. The Philadelphia Bulletin, describing the clewing scenes of the trial, says : About 11 o'clock Smith was brought out of the court-room, and placed in a carriage, which was Tapidly driven to the Debtor's Apartment, where he will lie confined until the Court takes some action upon the petition of his sister. The ap pearance of the late prisoner was the signal fur vociferous cheering, which continued as long as the carriage remained in sight. Mia* Smith followed in a second carriage W hen she came out of the court room the crowd gave her three hearty cheers.

The school house at the corner of Navy and Concord streets, In Brooklyn, look fire yesterday afternoon, and waa burned down, causing a loss of sevm lives? not by fire, but from crushing and suffocation in the attempt to escape So far as the facts are known.lt seems to have been purely fortuitous. Of course, all school-houses ought to be fire proof; but they are not, and such events will necessarily happen. In this case, the fire origi nated In the flues of a furnace, under the boys' <tepaitment The pupils in the grammar rooms, on the third floor, got out safely, as did all the girls in the other wing of the building. But the lads in the primary department, on the second floor, were quite unmanageable, and in their en deavors to escape got wedged into the stairway, wbera they trampled one auother under foot, and when tbey were extricated it was found that nevea of their numtier were dead. This clogging occurred just above the first lat.dlng, and within ten or tw? 1 ?e feet of the ground finor. There was no injury from fire, or even from smoke, although the bunding was afieiwaid destroyed. The stairway wa? anipe for ord n rv purp. s*?, and fortuntely the iHinisteis were fl in, or eWe we might have had another Greenwich-avenue hor ror.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOS81P. A Very Important Military Movement.? It is understood that the War Department is about to despatoh Lieutenant General Scott to the Pacific Coast, for the purpose of organiiing a force to operate against the Mormons from that quarter. * The Pacific Railroad.?The vote in the House upon the proportion of Mr. Phelps, for a selcct committee on the Pacific railroad pro ject, satisfies us, with what we knew before, that such a bill is destined to become a law ere the expiration of the present Congress. The difficulty auong itssupj>orters of agreeing on a single route, may postpone the consumma tion until the next session; though we doubt the fact. We havo steadily opposed the scheme up to this time; but, furthor opposition to it being in our judgment futile, we shall, next, essay to la bor to the end of making it sure that the plan t*iat may be adopted, shall be the least ob jectionable proposed. This appears to us lobe our path of duty under existing circumstances. It is well known, that President Buchanan has devoted much time in anticipation of the pres ent state of things to the thorough examination of the subject, in all its possible bearings, and it is believed that he has matured apian likoly to be sustained by all who desiro to conserve the true principles of the Government, as far as possible in undertaking such a novel policy. The public will, we know, look with nnxiety and hope for his future demonstrations on the subject, under this state of things. Senator Gwin, tho legislative father of the Pacific rail r >ad project, who has labored long, earnestly and effectively, iu its beliulT, is proverbially a man of as much sagacity as enesgv and lorco of j character; and therefore, we take it for granted that he is wedded to no particular scheme for the work, b it will aid any likely to succeed, be cause n ft strictly guarded against the abuses and political innovations of which the construc tion of so vast a work ol internal improvement, really at the expense of the National Treasury, (though it may be indirectly) must be pregnant, unless the law authorizing it be carefully guard ed. OrrosiTio* kor Opposition's Sake.?The Journal of Commerce, in a late article u(>on the course of the Republican party journals against the due enforcement of the rights and authority of the General Government in Utah TerriUry, completely exposes tho animux actuating the newspapers in question, not only in this matter, but also on all questions wherein they fancy they can hang a plausible objection to t!ie policy of a Democratic Administration, as that wo republish it at length, instead of an article on the same subject we had prepared : The Mouxos Rf.bkllio?.?Now that Kansas has ceased to bleed, and aioriea of outrage* ??d border-ruttians are no longer attractive or profit able; now that any attempt to raise an outcry with regard to \\ alker and Central America j* manifest?v hopeless of snrress, the opposition party journals direct their thoughts to Utah and Hrigbam \oung, and evidently fancy that thev have found a subject which will furnish them ample opportunities for abusing the Adminlstra tion.

This, however, would have been too much to cxpect from the Opposition. It should be remembered, that while assu ming to be able to dispose of every issue or question, great or small, more prudently and properly than they are disposed of by tho'dem ocracy when in power, experience in their dis charge of legislative and exccutivc duties where they have held, and now hold power, proves that they are far more incompetent and untrust worthy for the management of practical mat ters than any other political organixation that has so far stepped its brief hour on the stage of American political affairs?far more. The French Evbasst tiroN the Nica ragua!* Treatv.?The Washington corres pondent of the Covrntr drt Etat* Unit is Credited by the New York press generally, with being " inspired" from tho Bureau of the French Legation in this city. The views ex pressed in it concerning our international ques tions in issue are, therefore, of interest to American statesmen, as being likely to affect the views of the home (French) Government upon the same points. \\ e therefore quote from the correspondence named above a few paragraphs of a late letter, wherein the Nica ragua treaty is discussed with no mean ability. They embrace a very pungent commentary in deed, upon tho loolish allegation that in setting the forcc of his administration so effectively against filibustering in Central America. Presi dent Buchanan is playing into England's hands: "What will England then say and do' It is probable that, perceiving the irrecoverable ruin of her Central American Kmpire, she will have some idea of protesting, and require a slice of the cake; but it will be a little late to resuscitate the Claytqn-Bulwer trraty, already nowdead arid buried, under the firmly and clearly decided in o.'.u Bu^?a?au to put au end to the Mrltish influence upon this continent. The Brit ish Cabinet will, besides, find itself bound by the approbation which it gives now to the list acts of a political drama of which it i* far from seeing the ilmownunt. What title will it have, what argument will it urge, U loinplain of tak ing a possession of which it probably now ap proves In advance .' W hen l.otd I'almerston nr. cepts the Irissarri treaty, when Lord Napier ,? innocently in testacy l>efore the very clear decla rations of the President, neither of them seein to suspect that that treaty and those declarations prepare for proud Albion one of the most signal discomfitures which she has ever submitted to. But, astonished or not. liieir adhesion to what is going on now will not in the least authorise that which will take place at some future time, and . ij will have to consent unconditionally to abdicate his rule in Central America, or to light with Brother Jonathan. ' to "wing the latter back a Mingle step on that ground. 1 repeat, it is not to be expected It is precisely not to have to recoil under any cir cumstances, that Mr Buchanan is so particular about clearing the road of everything that may have the odor of illegality arid violence, lie wants to enter the isthmus of Nicaragua with a flag of truce in his hand and upon the faith of treaties, so that nobody may pretend to ex Dei him from it. The tactics which he has adopted for this occasion exhibit great skill, and if Con gress was anything but an assemblage of indi to It a,ub,tion> 11 would hasten to lend a hand "In order, however, that the plan of Mr. Buch anan might retain all its grandeur and escape all blame he would have to make allowance for Central America herself. Doubtless the annex atlon, such as he understands and announce* it, loses the odious character of violent conquest and forced acquisition ; nevertheless, it is to a certain points alned with egotism. The question. flnal * i i ?"e of e* Pension to the profit to the Anglo-Saxon raoe, by treading down on the pas-' sage other nationalities instead of annihilate the latter, would it not be more worthy af fce powerful American republic to make them thrive and prosper under her shelter ? It is impossible to suppose. In the ease of Central America. tfe.t prompt assimilation with the L'uited States which took place in Texas ?" Ihe Oricixal Japan Expedition.?It is now quite certain that the cost of the Japan expedition of Commodore Perry was a jadicion* expenditure; insomuch as through its iutlu?nce ? I a pan is being far more rapidly opened to com merce with the United States, than ever be??re, for centuries, to the trade o! any European na' tion. In a quarter of a century, if the promise of onr existing relations with Japan do not prove deceptiTc-and there is no reason at present to anticipate that it will prove so?our ?Japanese trade must become of immense value. The Ilong Kong P,r.s3 of the 21st of October, in speaking of the late success of Mr. Consul General Harris in negotiating his supplemental treaty with Japan, has the following just tribute to Commodore Perry : " Very great credit is due to Mr. Harris for the manner in which he has won over to himsetr the good wishes ami feelings ?.f the Japanese The system of espionage established on his first arri val over him is now entirely abolished, and be can roam when and where he will, unmolested and unwatched But he attributes all lit* ..uecess in establishing surh friendly relations with that people entirely to the great tact displayed by Commodore 1'rrry in bis lutereour.se With them and the deportment which distinguished him throughout all the negotiations of the treaty." California, Kansas and Nebraska Bun * The General Land Office has received, by the last mail, the following plats of surveys in California. Vii: Plat of the part of the rancho -'Entre Napa ' designated as the " Rincon de los Carneros," finally tonfirmed to Julius Martin, situate in part of townships 4 and 5, north of rauge 4, west ot the Mount Diablo meridian, and containing 2,557 68100 acres. Also, map of the Juristnc rancho, finally con firmed to A. and F.

And, also, of the following described ap proved township plats in Kansas and Nebraska Territories, from the Surveyor General of Kan sas. Vii: In Kansas Plat of township 2, south ranges 1,^ 2, 3, 4, and east of the tith principal meri dian ; plat of township 3, south range 1, east of same meridian. In Nebraska: Plat of township la, north ranges 3, 4, 5, 0, 7, and 8, east of the Oth prin cipal meridian.

The Renominated.?It is understood that more or less of the naval officers recently re nominated to the Senate by the President still " hang by the eyelids ' beforo that body. This is sincerely to be regretted. The propriety of their prompt restoration to the service, in the positions to which they were severally assigned by the courts martial scrutinizing their respec tive cases, strikes us as being most obvious It is utterly out of the power of the Senate or its Naval Committee to give their cases any pUoh thorough investigation as they received at the hands of the late courts ot naval experts. If, under existing circumstances, their recommen dations are not to be regarded as prima /uci? evidence of tbe propriety of the confirmation of the Dominations in question, those courts have been worse than useless to the public in terest, and their cost to the national treasury an enormons waste of public money. For the life of us we cannot see how tha Sen ate, as pressed as that body is with great pub lic questions of absorbing interest, can do any good by practically essnjing to sit as a sort of eourt-of-inquiry upon the action of the courts martial mentioned above, aa they would be dc* ing practically in pothering themselves, under existing circumstances, with efforts to re-inves tigate the cases of these officers, so thoroughly probed to the bottom by the late court*, nnd subsequently by the President, (ere confirming the findings of the courts,) the latter assisted by the advice of the Secretary of the Navy of course. The Proposed Inckra.se of the Army ? The bill reported to-day by Senator Davis to increase the army, whicK comes up for consid eration in the Senate on Monday nixt, provides for adding to each regiment of dragoons, cav alty, infantry and mounted riflemen, two full companies; also, for increasing the number of privates in each company of the whole army serving in the field or at distant frontier posts, not to exceed ninety-six men ; also, for the ad dition of fifteen assistant surgeons to the pres ent medical staff of the army. The last section of the said bill is in the following words : '?Sre. 4- And be it further tnncted, That here after regular promotions to vacancies occurring in the regimental grades of commissioned offi cers of the United State* ariny shall be by regi? inent* or corn*, instead of by arms of service and a* now regulated and provided in certain cases." The Consui.hhips.?Quite a number of the avalanche of strangers now crowding the hotels ot Washington are interested in the disposition of various Consulships not yet filled with new Incumbents. It being Understood that a large number of such nominations are now before the Senate, such gentlemen are in a state of trepidation, for the President has fairly man aged to keep from the knowledge of the yind
