Tux Dxath of Pabxbb?Below will be found the particulars of the strange death of Mr. Selby Parker The sffslr baa canned considerable talk, aa Mr. Parker has been well known In Washington for many years, In various business capacities. He waa for a conalderable time the proprietor cf a large ftncy-gooda store near the National Hotel; and will also be remembered aa concerned aa a security for Chaplin, the party implicated la the Seventh-street-road negro exodu*. Mr Parker had recently rented the ftW upper rooma of the Manalon Houae, wnt of Willarda' Hotel, and fitted them op tc tub-let them. The oil carpet on the atalra had been laid bnt not tacked down, the Intention being to aecure It by brass rods, which had not been placed. It la soppoaed that in coming down the stairs earlv thia morning he trad upon a place where the oilcloth pr.-;?c?ed beyond the step, and was thua precipitated, head foremost, to the bottom of the stairs, breaking his neck by the fall Ha was discovered at six o'clock this morning, dead No marks of violence were found on the body indicating violence. * The deceased when found, lay with bis face buried Id tbe mat, his arms extended, and his feet resting upon the atalra. He visited Butler'a restaurant on Fourteenth street, between one and two o'clock thia morning, In company with a Mr Bradley, of Philadelphia, a su'ler, (one of bis lodgers.) and Mr John Davis He appeared slightly intoxicated upon leaving, snd it is be1 ?ved met with his death from the atunnlng effect* of hia foil and from suffocation. About midway of the atalra one of the piece* of oilcloth with which they were lcosely covered waa found displaced this morning. No disturbance was heard by the lodgers during tbe night save tbe sound of a heavy fall, which excited no alarm. Mr Parker w?a about 56 years of age, and leaves wife, two aona, and a daughter Tbe verdict of the Coroner^ Jury to-day waa that hia death resulted from aa accidental fall. Pxxlixinabt ExamrNATION or a Msbdxb Casb?Last Monday. John Dougherty, a private f the 1st D C. Regiment, Col Tait. who for a month past baa been confined in jail upon the charge of murder by shooting private Slvlll, of the same regiment, had a hearing before Justice Donn Tbe evidence elicited the following facts: that on the day.upon which the homicide occurred, Lieut Towers being cfficer of the guard, (date not remembered,) the pri'oner was somewhat intoxicated, and was sitting by the 5re at the guardhouse of tbe regiment, in camp north of the city, and disturbing theeampby his conduct. Lieut Towers and the Sergeant of the Guard went to him while he was in an altercation with the Corporal of the Guard, who was trying to keep him quiet They saw him draw the Corporal's bayonet from theaaabbard and attempt to stab him, the weapon passing through his clothing, sllghtlv.grazing the skin He was arrested with difficulty and taken to the guardhouse While there he attempted to strike Lieut. Towers with a brick, but the Lieutenant escape^ the blow, and the missile grazed the Sergeant's face. The Lieutenant then told the prisoner that If he picked up another brick he wo*?ld shoot j him. The prisoner did take another, and waa In tbe act of raising it to throw, when the Lieutenant shot him in the thigh with a pistol. They then took him to put him on a stretcher to examine the wound, but he resisted, and the officers withdrew to obtain aid sufficient to force the examination and keep him still In the meantime some of the men, the deceaaed with them, tried by persuasion to pacify him, but he went Into the room where the arms of the guards not on duty were stacked, and took a gttn. and aiming deliberately through the door, fired and ahot tbe deceaaed He then took another gun and aimM to shoot abotber man who was in the guard-room, but tbe person he aimed at suddenly sprang upon him and seized the musket, and succeeded In taking it from him. Tbe prisoner was tben secured and sent to the county jail Sivil, the deceaaed, died of the wounds two daya after the occurrence Th? justice fully committed Dougherty for trial on the charge of murder Sbbbna&b Last Nioht.?A serenade waa last night given by the Wyoming Cornet Band, of the Fifty-aeccnd Pennsylvania regiment, to Hon. H B Wright, member of Congress from the 12th district of Pennaylvanla, at bis boarding place, corner G and Fourteenth streets After several popular air* had been performed by the band, Vr Wright addressed those present on political topics, announcing hia hearty support of the Admlnlstration. He had been a Douglas democrat, but when !t became nece?aary to take up arms against tbe rebellion which threatened tbe very existence of our Government, a pare and simple platform waa presented on whicn be could stand. He, however, deprecated any change of policy which w^uld make the destruction of slavery the object of the war?but at the same time was in favor of taking the property of rebel* In arms, as our troofw advanced whether ?ucb property consisted of lands, forage, horaes. cattle, or slave* He tben touched on the Maaon and Slidell arrest, and said he had rather that every man in the North should perish than surrender the prisoners. He believed that tbe belligerent aspect of England was intended to test our spirit, but whether it was the glove of defiance and challenge or not, if England should declare war, we should gird up our loins, put on our whole strength, and old and young turn out , to punish the insolence of a nation that desires more than any other to humble us God had a destiny for this nation, of which not England, nor France, nor the seceding States, nor all of these combined, could prevent the sure fulfiment. RxwaNxr to Ocry.?Yesterday afternoon, the Insubordinate members of tbe New York 13th regiment, who, for two months past, have been confined in tbe central guardhouse, were released and returned to their regiment The cause of their offence was their opposition to being separated or taken from tbe companies they originally enlisted in, to fill the ranks of smaller corps They were marched 0Qt in front of tbe station, where an eacort under Capt Hamilton awaited them, and they were pertinently addressed by Col Plckell Tbe Colonel told them that they had placed themselves in great danger of disgrace by their offending, a danger which they probably did not realize But the Department bad directed him to receive back to tne regiment any one who would agree to return to duty, and b? faithful to the cauae tbev had espoused. He then aaked all who would agree to tbis to step two paces to the front, when tbe entire party stepped forward. Col Plckell congratulated them upon tbetr unanimous decision, and told them that their comrades would rejoice to receive them la camp. They then formed In column with the escort, and returned to their camp in Virginia. They were twenty-aeven In number, and all young, Intelligent and able-bodied. During their confinement they made themselves friends among the guard* by their good conduct Tbeir colonel speaka highly of their conduct previous, to the effcoce fer which they were placed under arreat.

The United States Consul at Psrls bsd communicated to the French paper* a letter from General Scott, In which be declared there Is no truth !n the report that the Cabinet bad ordered a seizure of t .e southern commissioners, even nnder tbe protection of a neutral flag He wai quite ignoftnt of the decision of his Government, but eavff" It Is necessary to preserve good relations between America and England; and England, be hopes, will agree on a solution of the question whether the pr'soners were contraband or not If they were agents of tbe rebels, be save it will be difficult to convince even lmpar'lal minds that they were less contraband of war than rebel soldiers or csnnon. In conclusion. General Scott expresses bis conviction that a war between America and England cannot take plac? without more serious provocation than at present given. Tbe London Star thinks thst Gen . Scott's letter will receive a hearty response in England as a message of peace \ The Times says that Gen Scott, like his countrymen, Is rather inclined to disavow the conception of the outrage than to repudiate it, now tbat It has been done It Is reported that rebel and federal privateers are cruising at the entrance of the English channel It Is said that the admiralty have orde-ed two ships to proceed immediately to the W est indies to act as convoy to mall steamer*. the LOND"??i peess OS tbi AMERICAS SAVT".

Hostile demonstrations were being made at Bristol on the occasion of the departure of an Armstrong battery thence for shipment to Canada. THE LATEST . The tone and reserve of tbe French press in? creases Several of the leading Psrls paper* blame the British Government for having yielded to the pressure of public opinion as represented merely by Msnchester and Liverpool, and for having acted too hastily in tbe Trent affair.
