THE EVENING STAR. WA1HUTQTON CITY: FRIDAY APRIL 1, 1S?*. W READING MATTER ON EVERY I'AQE BEE OUT8IDE FOR INTERESTING TELE ?RAFHIC AND OTHER MATTER. FROM FORTRESS MOJIROE. A DMIRAI. ?AHLORES AGAIN t'l'L IN GETTING THE HODV O* HI3 r<4>N. EXPLOSION OF A TORT^DO AT THE A AV If Commodore Montgomery has received au order from the Department to make the pre liminary arrangements for building the ma chinery for a tasc screw gunboat, and conse quently a mnch larger force of machinists will have to be pnt to work. At present there is a lack of machinists of this class, and sood hands may receive a job by applying at th? yard. This machinery will be constructed under the superintendence of the Master Machinist, Mr. Gecrpe R. Wilson, and will no donbt reflect ciedit upon our machinists, as every job, large or small, which they have turned oil has here tofore done. Yes'erday afternoon, a volunteer surgeon went to the ordnance office of the yard to ex hibit a torpedo, of which he claims to be th? inventor, when finding that some alterations were necessary to ensore its success, he was directed to th? plumbers' department, wher-j Mr. Harley T. Hicks was set to work npon it, and while in the act of applying the solder, the torpedo, which was ascertained afterward* to he filled with chloride of potash and nitric acid, exploded. Mr. Hicks' arm, face, and neck were badly bnrr.t, and the inventor was alao badly bnrnt about the face. Some of the workmen had their clothes scorched. The Injured men were at once taken to the dispensary, where their wounds were dressed. Mr. Hicks was so ?>sdly bnrnt that it was requisite to take him to bis home, on 11th street east, near G street south, in a carriage. He is, however, much better this morning, and will recover. The in jured inventor was able to proceed to his quar ters without assistance. We understand that Mr. Hicks, before setting to work on the mis sile, was informed that there was no danger in handling it. The steamer Harvest Moon, Volunteer Lieut. Warren, arrived last night from Fortress Mon roe. bringing back Admiral Dahlgren, who was again unsuccessful in obtaining the body of his son. The Resolute arrived up last evening from ?St. Mary's river, but brings nothing new. THE WILKES COURT-MARTIAL. Chief Engineer John Qermain was npon the stand yesterday, testifying as to the condition of the bcilers of the steamers fVanderbilt and Wachusetts. The defence submitted letters from the Ad miral to the Navy Department, written during rhe latter portion of the year tSG'2, in which he very explicitly represented to the department the impossibility of wholly preventing block ade running, or capturing the rebel pirates, with bis small squadron of five vessels, a part ol which were in very bad condition for effec tive cruising. A letter was also submitted from the Secretary of the Navy to the Admiral, stating the purpose of the .Department to revoke his commiision and place him on the retired list as being too old for active service. The Court then adjourned to meet to-day :it eleven o'clock. . i GENERAL GRANT. A city eotemporary was premature in its an Bouceroent yesterday nfternoon, that General Grant had gone to Fortress Monroe. He left however last evening at six o'clock for that point in the U. S. steamer City of Al bary. He was accompanied by Generals Bal ciy Smith, and J. C Kobwaon. and his stall' officers, General Rawlins and Colonels Com stock and I.egrou. When two such energetic personages a* Grant aud Butler put their heads together for consultation, it looks like work ahead. CM'TI RS OF THE CONFEDERATE SLOOI' FLORIDA. The commander oI the U. S. steamer Honey suckle informs the Navy Department of the capture at sea* on the *20th of M*rch, in latitude 2"r2?, longitude 83:54, of the Confederate sloop Florida, from Havana, bound "nowhere in particular,'' ao the captain said. No papers were found on board the vessel, but her cargo consisted of powder, shot, nails, coffee, <fcc. The crew of the Florida numbered iour men, who, by their own confession, are old blockade runners. The vessel was sent to Key West, under charge of a prize crew, to be delivered up to the United States prize commissioner. Petition poh an Incuakk ok Fav Hon Reverdy Johnson a f#w days since presented a petition from the messengers, watchmen and laborers of the different executive departments lor an increase of pay, which was referred to the Finance Committee, where no doubt it will receive a favorable consideration. The duties of thia class of Government employees haye since the commencement of the war beeu large ly multiplied, owing to the amount of business done in the departments: but their pay has not been in any manner Increased, notwithstand ing the enormous increase In the cost of living Ovuba at GKOVJtit'n.?Flowtuw'a grand ope. ra of SiraMla (performed now for the first time in Washington we believe) to be given to night .- t Giover's theatre by the German troupe, will undoubtedly bring ont all the opera goers uf the Metropolis.

He made the trip without incoirvenience or pain, and was safely conveyed to his home, a mile from the village. Much credit, indeed, is due to Dr. Lippencott, who, haying faithfnlly walched by his aide since 1m first became ill, with Mrs. Lippencott, accompanied him upon the trip home, and accorded him s^dnlous care and attention.

XXXVIIIth CONQRK38.?FIR3T S138IOH. Friday, April 1. Sioatx.?The Vice President laid before th;? Senate a communication from the Secretary of the Navy, in reply to Mr. Grimes'resolution caJliig for information as to the number of men transferred Irom the military to the naval service, if any, and if not why not, and what additional legislation is necessary on tho sub ject. It appears by the letter that though a recent act Wfts passed to allow these transfers, none have taken place, and it has been impos sible, as yet, to relieve the navy from the diifl cnlty of procuring crews for numerous vessels. The Secretary suggests the necessary measures for relief The letter was referred to the Naval Committee. Mr Clark, from the Committee on Claims, reported adversely on the petition of Rev. Mr. .Roberts, lor compensatiou as chaplain at Fort McHenry. The report was agreed to. Mr. Trumbull presented a memorial from the officers of the Illinois Central Railroad Company against (he extension of the Good year India rubber patent. On motion of Mr. Grimes, a resolution was ad opif d requesting the President to commnni cate the names of all persons who have been sentenced for fraud against the Government, and of all who have been pardoned since De cember let, with the sentences from which they were pardoned, Ac. Mr. Nesmith called up the hill to establish ateay ollices at Carson City, Nevada, and at Dalles City, Oregon, and moved to amend so as to establish a branch mint at Portland, Oregon, instead of Dalles City. He addressed the Sen ate at some length, arraigning and ridicnliug the opposition thereto of Mr. Pollock, of the California branch mint, because of the increase of smh establishments tending to disintegra tion of the Union, &.c. He thought, it unjust, as well might it be claimed that all the factories, shoe shops, Ac., desired for the convenience of the people shonld be stuck down in one village for the sftme reason. Mr. Conness moved that when the Senate ad journ it be until Monday; which was car ped. The Senate then went into executive session. Hot pk.?Mr. llolman, of Indiana, gave notice that he will, on Monday, introduce a resolution directing the Committee on Military Alt'airs to report a bill increasing the pay of privates in the army. Mr. Wilson asked but failed to obtain leave to introduce a bill regulating commerce among the States. It declares each and every rail road com panj' is authorized to transport freight and passengers irom one State to another: any thing in the Jaws of any State to the contrary, notwithstanding. Mr. Blaice, of Maine, introduced a bill to provide for n-fuuding to the l*yal State* cer tain sums of money expended by them in the raising, organizing, and eqaippiug of troops for the Union army: which was referred to the Committee of Ways and Means. (It provides for a hoard of commissioners to ascertain the amount, which is to be reported toConzress ] Mr. Eliot, of Mass , Irom the Committee on Commerce, reported a hill to establish a uui Joim coi'e fur tiie prevention of collisions ou the waters, and it was prs:-ed. [It appears Irom the explanations of Mr. Eliot that Great Britain and France have adepted the code, and it is believed that other maritime powers will do the same, thus secur ing a uni.orm code so important to thos^ en gaged in marine transactions.] Mr. Elijah Ward, of N. Y., reported from the Committee on Commerce a joint resolution di recting the President of the United States to pive the required notice for the termination of the reciprocity treaty with the British Prov inces, or takemeasnres for rendering the treaty more reciprocltal to the 1 nited States. Its con sideration was postponed for fonr weeks. The Honse went into committee on the.Na tional Bank Bill. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. I>1 PORTAJST FRO.U SEW ORLEANS.

This was the day fixed for the execution of Jeremiah Kendricks, convicted of the murder of Dennis Shanahan, and Emanuel Pollard* (colored) convicted of the murder ot George Butler, (colored.) The terms of their .sentence condemned them to be hung between the hours of 12 m. and *2 p. m. The gallows, which has been erected for some days is placed in the southwest corner of the yard north of the jail building. It is placed in this position to screen it as ranch as possible from view outside. Persons however, by climbing to the rools of the adjacent houses are enabled to get a precarious view of the scene and those having a morbid curiosity in that v. ay frequently pay large sums ot "money to be permitted to occupy upper windows ot the neighboring houses affording, as the/ do, some glimpse of the terrible tragedy. THE CASK OP KRNDRIORf*. Kendrick was committed and sentenced for the murder of Dennis Shanahan on the morning of December'27th, at the house of the latter on 1st street between K and L streets north. T lie circumstances of the murder were f.s follows:?Kendricks had bought a stove Irom a woman and a dispute took place be tween Shanahan and himself iu relation t<? it duiiut: which Kendricks threatened to kill Shanahan and the latter went off. Kendricks afterwards went to the house of Shanahan in the night armed with a knile and dared the latter to come out. Shanahan refused at first, but after K?-ndrick^ had been before the house for some time Shanahan went to the door ac companied tiy his wife. Kendricks asked ? Is that you Shanahan !" to which he replied in the affirmative. Kendricks asked ?' Are you going to i'ollow that stove *" to which Shan ban replied ?' I will see about it to-morrow." Kendricks exclaimed ? Come out here you s? ot-a-h? and I'll see if yon follow it." Mrs. shanahan told her husband to come in, when Kendricks rushed up and inflicted a stab in the breast of Shanahan which caused hi3 death in a few minutes. Kendricks ran off as soon as the deed was committed but was pursued by Mrs. Shanahan who called on some soldiers and they arrested Keudiicks, and delivered him over to the 4th W ard police. An inquest w:>s held the following oay when a verdict was rendered in accordance with the above facs. When Kendricks was arrested the knife was not found on him, but the following day it was picked up. coveied with blood, where he threw it iu bis Might. The prisoner was committed to jail by JusticeGiberson and was tried on the Sth of February. Messrs. Pataey, < lay ton and Wise appearing for him?and a verdict was rendered the same day of tuiltv cl murder in the first degree. lie received the sentence of death on the *ld of February with out emotion, ard at the time took occasion to comment upon the testimony, charging that some of the witnessesagainsthim wouldswear a man's life away for a drinkof whisky. And a.'ter the conclusion of the sentence he remark ? d " That they could take his life, but not nis soul; that God's body was put to death," and walked hack to the dock where he engaged in conversation with other prisoners as uncon cerned apparently at if it was some bodvelse's case. THK t'APK OF I'OLLABD. Pollard was convicted and sentenced for the murder of Heorge Butler, a colored man, on ? he night of the <?th of October last, on Kuxzard "oint, the extreme southern point of Wa-hin" toii. The parties lived near each other, and had the preceding day a quarrel in relation to the possession of a boat, when the culprit threatened to kill the deceased beforedfee nieht passed. On the night cf the murder, some per: on called the deceased, and on his arinr to the door he was shot hi the breast, andWed in a few hours from the effects of the wound, r rum the tact that Pollard had quarrelled with the deceased, suspicion fell on him, and he was arrested on the morning after the oc currence and committed to jail on the chares of committing the act, and on the same day the Coroner's jury lonnd a verdict that the de ceased came to bis death from a wound in flicted at the hands of Pollard. The accused was tried at the December term of the Court, (February llth) and on the. following day he was found guilty. The evidence was altogether circumstantial, but pointed unerringly to the prisoner, who, after the quarrel, wa- seen go ing in the direction of the house of the deceased with a gun, which was found the following day, not in its accustomed place, and neir ;he bed of the condemned man?it bavin* ap parently been lately discharged and reloaded: and the ohot taken Irom ttie wound were found to correspond with soma which were at the prisoner's house. The sentence of death wa j usted upon by Judge Olin, on the last day of the Last term ot the Court, February 23d, and then in reply to the question whether he had anything to say why sentence should not be passed upon him, he answered that he w-i? not guilty of the crime, and asserted that at the time the murder was charged to have been committed, he was asleep iu bed. He betrayed no emotion when the eenience was passed upon him, although at the time every specta tor in the Court room appeared to be affected by the awtul solemnity of the scene. Pollard has a wife and two children in the city He came from near Warrenton, where he was a slave to a Mr. Hughes, from whom he made bis es. ape, when our armies were in that vi citmy. I CONDITION OK- THE CONDEMNED MEN. Since their conviction and sentence, Rev I b ather McGuire, ot St. Aloysius Church, with several Si-ters of Charity, have visited them daily, and lately several times each day to ad minister spiritual consolation to them, which ha# been gratefully received. The wife ot Kendricks, has beeu visiting him often, but the wi.'e of Pollard, although frequently sent for by him, has not seen him since his arrest in October last. Some ot the colored communi cants ot St. Aloysius have frequently visited Pollard, who, it seems, never had religious in struction. Yesterday. Father McGuire ?pent several hours with them, as did also the Sif ter's ot Charity; and alter Pollard had been properly instructed, he was baptised iu the Catholic Church. The Holy Sacrament wa~ also administered at the same time. They yes terday seemed to feel deep sensibility in reiard to their doom, but they expressed themselves to Le fully prepared to meet their God. Jeremiah Kendricks is an Irishman by birth, but came to this country when quite a boy, and settled In Pennsylvania, living in YorR county icr most of the time, following farm work. He has, we hear, several brothers in this country. He is a man of about twenty. Ave years of age, and was married about two years since by Kev. Father McGuire, shortly alter he came to this city, to a girl living near where the murder look place, by whom he has one child. He had been engaged before the commission of the crime in driving a team in the train of Mr. Mcllenry, and was looked upon when sober as a quiet, inoffensive man Pollnrd was formerly a slave to a Mr Hugbes. living rear Warreu'on, Va., from whom he escaped about three years etuce dnrirg one of the first advances of our army' bringing lus wife and two children, and on reaching this city, settled down \r\i Basxarfi's Point, and betook himself to boating for a live lihccd.

PCENE IN THE VICIMTT Of THK JAIL Some time before noon crowds or parsons con.menced to rather in the vicinity ot the itul Among them -were many soldiers and a number of women and children: but the high wnll* of the jail intervening, they could gain t.o vie'* of the gallows or place of execution. The house tops and upper atones of some of the neighbor ing houses were filled with persons, however, waiting the opportunity or witnessing the exe cution. At some few ot the houses the npprr windows were closed, and not a person was to be seen. Twelve o'clock came and weat by. ard presently It was whispered amongst the crowd that tbe sentence of the criminals bad been commuted to imprisonment tor life Others called ont not to believe it, saying that the story of the commutation was a lit of April hoax, put afloat to enable the originators to get better standee seats. It was not until the last miaata of the time designated as the limit (2 p.m.) had expired, that many of the spectators were willing to leave the vicinity. COMMUTATION oy thk PETiTrse*. For some days it has been doubtful whether the prisoner* could be lawfully executed. Mar shal Lamon being nnder the opinion that th late law of Gongreaa providing for the appoint ment of a Warden to tbe jail, took the entire control of that prison from him, and that coa aequently he conld not legallv execute tbe men. In this opinion he waa backed by eome of tbe Jaw officers of tbe Government. During tbe last few day?Mrcnanns efforts have been made tc have tbe sentence commuted or the prisoners respited, and this morning tbe President grant ed a commntatien of their sentences to Impris. onment for life. The document to that efleot was immediately banded to the Marshal and he hastened to the jail to announce it to the prisoners. The prisoners, who accnpy adjoining ceils, weie visited this morning by their spiritual adviser, Rev. Father MeGuire, with two ot tbe Sisters of Charity, and the wite of Ken drick, who remained with them during the greater part of the morning, engaging with the condemned men in religious exercises, and were awaiting to perform the last sad offices of the Church, should they be required. While they were thus engaged at a quarter to twelve o'clock, Marshal Lamon arrived at the jail, and going into the office sent tor the prisoners to be brought down: and iu afe-w minutes, In company with the guards, thev made their appearance, when the Marshal read to them in the presence of District Attorney Carrington, Dr. Young, the physician to th jail: Mr. Davis, of the bar; Rev. B. A MeGuire, the spiritual adviser of the criminals, and sevfral others, the death warrant or Kendricks and Pollard, and after asking if they would accept a commutation of sentence as a contract, (the President having no power to commute a sen tence t xcept with the cor.sent of the parties.i to which they replied in the affirmative, h reftU 'he endorsement on the back, as follows "In this case of Jeremiah Hendricks [or E.

The law recently passed by Congres- rer the appointment of a warden to the jail took from the Marshal all power over the prisoners iu the jail, and tbe Senate failing to confirm the newly appointed warden, left the prisoners without any legal authority lor auy party to execute them. The followiug letter from the Attorney General to the President explains ti?e reasons for the comm utation: At'.<rrnry (irnrral'* Office, Washington, Mvrch '2^th, 1S>I.? To fkt President:?Sin: I have the honor to receive your note of this day endorsed upon a printed copy of " A bill to authorize the appointment of a Warden of the jail in the District of Columbia.'' You require my opinion whether this law relieves the Marshal of the District from Uie duty of executing the death sentence upon per sons under that sentence, in the District jail That bill hp.yine become a law'as your note implies, 1 think it clear beyond a donor, tha' the Marshal no longer lias auv duty or law ful power to execute any sentence"of deafi upon auy man imprisoned in ihe jail of the District of Colombia, under sentence of death The recond section of the act is explicit, an J is in these words: ?>That the said warden shall have tbeexclusive supervision ar.d control ot the jails in the said District, and be accounta ble ior the safe keeping of all the prisoners le gally committed thereto, and shall have a'/ power, and disch'Tie nil the. duties heretofore legally exercieed anil discharged over said j iil and the prisoners therein bv the Marshal ot fai t District." Ihis plainly transfers all the powers and du ties of the Marshal, in that behalf, to the War den of the jail. I have the honor to he, most respectfully, your obedient servant, (Signed) EdWd Bate a.
