AN IMPORTANT OMISSION. Tbe omission by the printers of three words from out paragraph yesterday concerning the movements of Gen. Grant, put Gen. Sheridan in command of the Army of the Potomac, in stead of, ?' in command of tbe cavalry of the Army of tbe Potomac," as it should have read. SENTENCE COMMUTED. Robert Bartmaa, of company K, 1st New Jersey volunteers, who was found guilty ot desertion by a general court-martial and sen tenced to be shot, has had his sentence com muted by President Lincoln to imprisonment at bard labor at the Dry Tortugns duriag the remainder of tbe war. DETACHED. Assistant Surgeon W. K. Scbofleld, U. S. N.? has been detached from tbe steamer Union, and is now awaiting orders. Martha?.4 yifkt in Granada.?Notwith standing the terrible weather of last night a large, brilliant and very critical audience, in cluding the President and his family, attended the representation of Martha, toy Carl An churl's Opera Troupe, at Grover's Theater. To say that the entertainment passed off admi rably will but feebly express the effect of the fins music ot this opera as rendered by the t oupe. It was, to say tbe least of it, a more de cided artistic triumph than was ever achieved in this country by any other opera company. "Every solo, duett, trio, quarto, quintette and chorus in the piece was rapturously applauded, and half a dozen of them were necessarily- re peated before tbe audience would permit the piece to proceed. Tnree times all the leading artists were made to appear before the curtain, where they received such testimonials of the popular appreciation of the Federal Metropolis of their professional merits and success as they surely will never forget. To-nigh+, they render ?*A Night in Granada," an opera never before pertormed hsre as a w he le. Its movements, one and all, are as dis tinetive and as different from anything el3e as those of Martha and Don J nan; nor are they less br.lliant, harmonious and melodious. In truth, tl e critics over the water,or many of them, rank ??A Night in Granada" as being perhaps the fines: opera now upon tbe stage next after Don Juin. As to-night bids fair to be much more pleasant than last evening, every nook and corner ol the vast theater is destined to be filled with enthusiastic auditors. Tub Position of tub Govbrnm en r To W ABD THE NEW GOVEBNMENT OP MEXICO.? The following paragraph appears in a recent i. umber of the London Globe : "We have reason to believe that, on accept ii c the crown of Mexico, the Emperor Maxi |wllii?.n will address from Mexico a formal no. audition of his accession to the throne to all the Prii>c?s and powers with whom he wishes to e^tab i a diplomatic relations. Amongst t e nr.mber is tne United States of America, Mr. Dayton tbe American Minister in Paris haviug already intimated the readiness of Go\ernment to accredit a representative in Mexico and receive a minister from the Emper or of Mexico." There is every reason to believe that Mr, Dayton bas given no intimation of tbe char acter thus referred to, and that his Government has not authorized him to give any 3uch. Bbtikbd List of Justices and Juixjbh of tub United States Courts.?Senator An thony introduced a bill yesterday, providing for the retiring ol Justices of the Supreme Ccurt, or District Judges of the United States, at their own request alter having reached tbe age of saventy years. If a retiring chief jus tice, or associate justice, bas served not over fifteen years his pay shall be?4,lKiO per annum, and C50U shall be added for every additional five years. District Judges are to have three fourths of Ealary, provided that none shall be lees than 32,000. Vacancies made by the retir ing process are to be supplied by appointments by the President The Welcome to Gbobob Thompson.?As s*ated fti another column, George Thompson, Of England, the distinguished orator and hu iramiarian. will, by invitation of the "Wash ington Lpctnre Association," joined by promi nent members of both Houses of Congress, speak in tbe Hall of Representatives to-night. Vice President Hamlin will preside. There will undoubtedly be a large gathering to greet the distinguished speaker. Exchange of Prisonkrs>.?It is uudersund tha* General Butler has arranged a badfe Of ercbange with Commissioner Quid, whereby all cur prisoners will bo exchanged. The? agreement, however, remains to be sanctioned by the Richmond and Washington authorities. It is known that the rebels are exceedingly a.-.xious to secure their prisoners, who have la'tened in their comfortable quarters, for the M-rirg campaign. t^Froin the New York publishers, Leonard }?c tt & Co , we have the February number of the North British Review, containing, amongst < tUer attractive articles, the most appreciative and lelicitious notice of the life and genius of Thackeray we have yet seen. Personal.?Mr. J. G. Nicolay, the Presi dent's private secretary, has returned from a brief visit to New York. ?^General McDowell is ordered to Califor 111 to take command, and will leavat on :e. Thb Dismissal of Officers.?Ju jge Advo ? ate General Holt has. in response to the re quest ot the Senate Committee on Military A airs, given his vie^s on tbe House bill tak ing from the President the power tosummarily dismi- s irray and navy officers, and substitute suspension of suih officers in to umaad with trial by court-martial. Judge Hoi: says from the found, t on of the Government the Presi dent has been in tbe habit of summarily dis missing offloers in {be land and naval service. The power to do so seems to inbere to him nuder theConsti ulion as Oommander la-Chief of the ermy r nd navy. His action' in this re spect bas bun attended by no oppressioa or ui?u<>e?, and its strict Irgality cannot be con ?>?ted. The exerciee, therefore, ol this author ity since the oit-reak of this rebellion has not irr in it that ta or* of usurpation or in i v&tion, or tbat should excite alarm. In the emergencies of military life, and especially during a period of acU?tr hostilities, ttte interest ot th* service oiten not only require that officers shall be insUn'ly di mi-sed, but tbat places shall be fm mediately supplied "1 his t'ill makes snon supply Impracticable in the cases of delinquent an.J ausp^n Jed officers, fetvmusw it ccntemplat-* no vacancy. Besides this, Mr. Holt says that many other -things that the Government could not investigate throng'1 court-mat uaL, the hundreds of cases which this bill would hriug up tor trial, such a dratt upon the officers of the army needed ' tor active field service must greatly impair the i efficiency ot the campaign now about to open 1 Jn every part of theater of war. The Sauiite ' Military Committee hu reported adversely to ' tbe bill. Snowed lN._The first U. S.

The Vice President laid before the SeuatM a communication from the Secretary of the In terior in reply to Mr. Hale's resolution of in quiry as to whether the Marshal of the District of Columbia had, since the passage of the act creating a warden of the jail, neglected or re fused to execute the laws of the District dr judgments of the courts. The Secretary says he has no knowledge of such being the case. On the contrary, he says that he is apprehen sive that the Marshal's detaining persons in the jail may be without due authority of law. The communication was ordered to lie"on the table. Mr. Conness presented resolutions of the Legislature of Calfornia.on the condition of ! the country, and the issues involved in the | war. Mr. C. said that they come here in an j opportune time, when we are engaged in the : woik of expurgating from the political system I the poison that, has effected It. Their coming | i6 a remarkable coincidence, as if prepared by the Almighty Hand. They come from tho far tbest off State, which had been represented in I parf by those who at least scoff at the great t ripht of liberty. They were of no mixed e$ ! pression, and coincided with his own viewfe. ? The resolutions were lengthy, and declare in ; the outset that the people ol California are ui* | coiT'promisingly loyal: that this is a war ofla slaveholditg aristocracy against free Govern j ment: and after denouncing " Copperhead" 1 members of CoBgress, who would send com I missicners to Richmond, declare that Califor j nta will accept no compromise with traitors. Mr. Grimes introduced a bill to repeal the I joint resolution passed a short time since lor 1 the transfer of seamen from the military to the j naval service. He said it was very important that it should be passed immediately, and ex plained that in the enrollment act there are sections which relate to the same thintr, but conflict with tbe joint resolution, whirh was introduced during the pendency of that bill, with tbe expectation that it would reach tha President before the enrollment act could pa*?. HorPE.?Mr. Pendleton, of Ohio, from the select committee on the subject, reported a bill providing that tbe Heads of the Executive I?e partments may occupy seats on tbe floor of tbe House of Representatives. It was ordered to be printed, and permission given to the major ity and minority of the ^mmittee tQ hanil in their reports. He said he would not call up the subject for consideration without due no tice. Tbe House resumed the consideration of the National Bank bill; tbe question being on agree ing to tbe amendments reported from the Com mittee of the Whole on the 6tate of the Union.

Another Attempt to Break .Tail.?Yes terday afn<rnocn, as Messrs. 1'ayman and Robinson, guards at the jail, were engaged in locking up the prisoners foi*the day, they dis co'vere.l that a hole, large enough for a man to squeeze throogb, had been cut nearly through tli? wall vf the third story, and, on examining the tell opposite, discovered that the wall of that ^.'so had been nearly cut through. The parties who intended to escape through this hole w*re both colored?Joseph Bradley, con vict a of stealing a horse, and Lloyd Adams, of viand larceny; the first sentenced to two ye..it in tl.e penitentiary, and the latter to one. The wall had apparently been cut through recently, and the openings were care fully concealed with a piece of shirt. The prisoners had made a rope of their bed ticking, 35 ieet long, of three strands, with which to let themselves down. As soon as they weie discovered they were placed in a safe place. It is thought that they would hare made the attempt before night, had it not been that there is a guard constantly in the north yard of the prison; and but for the vigilance of tbe officers they wonld doubtless have ere this escaped. TrtE Flood.?The current and high water in the Potomac, fully justified the merenants on the wharves at Georgetown to prepare for a freshet. As yet, however, nothing unusual has occnrred in consequence of the rise in the river. The water is very high in the upper rirer, and it is expected to be higher. The w, ater in the canal i6 nearly bank fnll, but not sufficient to cause uneasiness, and nothing has been heard iron, the upper sections to induce a belief that anv-damage has or will result irom tbe rains. No boats have arrived at Georgetown ?>inoe our last report, and but two have departed, both of which were bound lor places but a short distance up the canal. Seventh street east, in this city, forming a sort of channel for the drainage of a large por tion of the city north of the Navy Yard, was filled by the flood; the water being up to the doors of some of the d wellings, and quite a number pf cellars and basements were over ilowed, doing some dapage. The Price of Gas.?The House Committee on the District of Columbia, this morning had a hearing of the various interests concerning nn increase in the prici of gas, the Gas Com pany having petitioned for an^rease of 10 par cent to their present price. Mayor Wallach, Messrs. J. H. Semmes, A. Lloyd, A. H. Shepherd, and other citizens ap pear. d in behalf of the city, and Jos. F. Brown, Esq., secretary of the Washington Gas Light Company, for the Company. Mr. Brown made a statement in the Com pany's behalf, claiming the increase as a matter of justice, in consequence of the great advan<3e in the cost of material, coal, &c , and was re plied to by Mr. Shepherd, who contended that lire Company had made enormous profits, and wa> still sell supporting.

The petty jury were discharged tfll Tuesday next. The weather continues rainy and disa greeable, Another N. E. rain storm ha? pre vailed since yesterday at noon. All the streams in tbeadjoining country are very high, and the roads deep in mud. Tbe high tides in the Po tomac, we spoke of yesterday, prevailed to-day. The river is up to the top of tbe wharves, and the water runs considerably up King street There is difficulty of landing from the steam boats when the tide is at its height. Ot course, we presume, tbe condition of the roads and streame puts a stop, at present, to any import ant army movements on either side.?Alca. Oat. April 5tk. _ Pardoned.?'The President to-day pardoned Moses Nix, a colored man, who was tried by a court-martial about two years since in South Carolina, and sentenced to the jail of the Dia. trict for ten years for murder, in killing another colored man who he had caught taking im proper liberties witb his^vife.
