Cairo, April 15.?No boats ha re been allow ed to leave here for points below Columbus since the first news of the Fort Pillow affair.

Woodruff, ol the U4th Illinois infantry, j St. Louip, April 15.?The correspondent of ! the Union, who was aboard the steamer Platte \ alley, at Fort Pillow, gives an even more appalling description of the flendishness of 1 the rebels than our Cairo dispatch. Many #f cur wounded were shot in the hospital, and the remainder driven out and the hospital burned. 1 The morning alter the battle the rebels went ! ever the battle-field and shot the negroes who ! hart not died Irom previous wounds. Many ol these who escaped from the works and haspi- ! tals, and who desired to be treated as prisoners : cf war, as the rebels said they should be, were ordered to tail into line, when they were inhu manly shot down. Of three hundred and fifty I colored troops, not more than fifty-six escaped massacre, ana not one officer that com- ' snrvlv?- Only four officers of the escaped death. The loss of the nh Tennessee is eight hundred killed, and tue remainder wounded and captured. Gen. Chalmers told the correspondent that although it was against the policy of his government to ? ?fsro ?oldiers and th^ir officers, he t ad done all !n his power to stop the carnage at he same time, he said he believed it was : '.cht. Another officer said our white troops vouM have been protsct^d had they not been guidon duty with the negroes. While the *^bels endeavored to conceal iheir loss it was ("? ident that they sutleied severely Col. Iieed r mraacdiiig the Tennessee regiment, wa* -rrally wom.ded.

Another letter from "Admiral" Maurjr wni- al-'o brouchi at proof. Mr. Dayton artdre/fed RT. dp L.liuvs cn the subject, who in torn communicated wuh the Minister of the Marine, wbo on his part re plied that as Yoruz and Arman bad declared that their new vessels were for Chinese waters, ai.d as merchant ships in 'hat part of th?* world are usually armed?he could not refu?e them the permission to arm the vessels. He howev er declared, he would ask the ship-builders themselves about the matter. He did so. But Yoruz and Armm -the Lairde and Denny of France?re-asserted that The ohips I were intended for China, and denied the exist ence of the letters compromising them. Their proofs of innocence must, however, have been very weak, for iu October last the Minister of the Marine withdrew, both frem Voruz and from Arman, the authorization for arming the vessels, and M. de l'Huys, in a no'e to Mr. : Dayton announcing the fact, dilate- upon it as a signal example of the determination of the I government of the Emperor to maintain a strict I neutrality. This was all very well; but the case or griev ance on our part is that, according to the Opin ion Rationale, the bnilding and arming of the iron clads was suspended only for a month or two; and the work, resumed long ago, has now so far advatoced that two of the vessels are ready as per contract to be delivered into the hands of the ) Confederate agents. r>^==?

Elsewhere the reader will find the dispatches of the Associated Press from Cairo, received since the last issue of the Star. They embrace more details of the recent occurrences at Fort Pillow, Columbus and Padocah. Yesterday afternoon at about Ave o'clock dispatches were received here from General Sherman, confirming the surrender of Fort Pillow and the brutal conduct of the rebels immediately afterwards, which bids fair to be amply retaliated in that quarter in due time. According te General Sherman, our lpss was fLty white troops killed, one hundred wound* ed, and three hundred black troops murdered in cold blood after the surrender. Fort Pillow is an isolated post, of no value whatever to the defense of Columbus, and utterly untenable by the rebels, who have doubtless skedaddled from that vicinity ere this; having been disappointed, with consider able loss, in the object of their raid thither, which waa the capture of Columbus, whence they were promptly and severely repulsed, with Bo loss to us. We are satisfied that due investigation will show that the loss of Fort Pillow was simply the result of a mistake of a local commander, who occupied it against direct orders: a contingency incident to all wars. The rebels, according to official dispatches received here last evening, effected nothing at Paducah, losing a soldier killed or wounded for every horse they succeeded in stealing, and doing na no other damage than by a few thefts. It is believed that Forrest's raiders will next appear in the vicinity of Memphis, where they can effect no more than at Columbus and Pa. ducah, and stand a very fair chance indeed of finding themselves surrounded by overwhelm ingly superior numbers. FROM FAIRFAX COURT HOUSE. 8IX OF MOSEBY'S MEN CAPTURED. We have information from Fairfax Court House to the effect that a scouting party, sent out from that place on Thursday afternoon, returned yesterday, bringing with them one corporal and five privates of Moseby's battal ion. These prisoners belonged to the party which came down with Moseby on Thursday night, whose intention it was to destroy bridges, fiom the fact that one of the party taken had a canteen of turpentine in his possession. SENTENCE COMMUTED. A Military Commission, held at Kansas City, Missouri, of which Lieutenant Colonel J. e Hayes, 12th Kansas volunteers, was president," arraigned and tried James Williams, citizen! for a "violation of the laws of war." It was charged in the specifications that after Wil liams had taken the oath of allegiance to the Federal Government, he took up arms as an insurgent and guerrilla against the laws and authorities of the United States, and joined and co operated with an armed band of insurgent* and guerrillas, who were engaged in plunder ing the property of peaceable citizens, (Wil liams not being a soldier commanded by any regular, civil or military authority whatever,) contrary to and in violation of the laws and customs of war. Upon the evidence produced, the Commission found Williams guilty, and sen'enced him to "be hung by the neck until death." The action of the Commission having been forwarded to President Lincoln for his action, he directs that the sentence be commuted "to imprisonment in the penitentiary at hard labor for five years." OFFICERS CASHIERED. Hefore a court martial, of which Lient. Col. J. K. Lewis, 5th regiment Vermont volunteers, is President, now in seosion at the headquar ters, 2d division, 6th army corps, the following officers were arraigned and tried: Captain Robert W.

XXX VI 11th CONQBK8B.?glKBl'tt*SS>IQN Satikday, April 16. Skp-atk ?Mr. Foster offered a resolution di recili.g the Secretary of the Treasury to report to the Senate if it is in contemplation'to alter or take down the south front ol the Treasury building, and state what amount of expense is being incurred in the work. Mr. Foster explained that he had understood that the design In the first place was to increase the architectural beauty of the edifica: and in the second, to increase the room inside Mr. Sumner confirmed the fact that the al teration was for the purpose of securing space, and the plan was to add an outside wall be! hind in place of the columns. Mr. Fesseuden thought this would be a inf use of the public money, as that part ot the building was now finished, and the appropria tions were for other work. The resolution passed. Mr. Howard offered a resolution that the ikmmlttse on th* Conduct of the War Inquire into tp? truth of the rumored massacre of Union trvoj* ftt Fprt PiHcw niter ttwu ? : i ? and that for thU parpon* Uwjr, or inch of tb?ir number as they may depute, repair to tn<> neighborhood, and report as w in as possible. Mr Fessendeu thought that aniens in ca?*s ol extreme urgency It was hardly worth whit; for members of Congress to go into these kin l of inquiries at A distance. Their place ol du v was here. We are coming to a period in the session when it was vary important to have all the members present for the dispatch of busi ness. It was the dnty of the War Department to look into these matters, and it was to be pre sumed that it wonld dnly attend to it. Mr. Wilson said be had called at the War Department this morning, and the Secretary bad told him be had a dispatch from General Sherman saying that about three hundred of our soldiers had been massacred at Fort Pil low, and he intended to make an immediate in vestigation of the matter, and had appointed officers for the purpose. Gen. Sherman was not on the spot however and had received his information in the same way perhaps as the other statements came. Mr. Johnson moved to amend the resolution by directing the committee also to inquire whether Fort Pillow could not have bean re inforced or evacuated; which was agreed to. Mr. Howard then withdrew his clause re quiring the committee to send some of their members to the snot, and as thus modified,' the resolution was adopted. Hovsa.?Mr. Randall, of Kentucky, offered a resolution, which was agreed to, instructing the Committee on Military Affairs to inquire into the necessity and expediency of construct ing a railroad from Cincinnati to connect with Cumberland Gap, for military purposes, as recommended by the President of the United States in his message of December, 1661. Mr. Kernan. of N. Y., presented the resolu tions of the Legislature of that State, asking that Gen. Robert Anderson be placed upon the retired list, with full pay. They wera referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. Mr. Rice, of Maine, presented the resolutions of the Legislature of Maine, asking tbe protec tion of the northwestern frontier of that State. The resolutions were laid upon the table and ordered to be printed. Mr. Washburne, from the Select Committee on Emigration, made a report thereon, accom panied by a bill providing for emigration from abrodd, to supply the vacuum in the indus trial pursuits, caused by the necessities of the war. Tbe bill provides for a Commissioner of Emigration, to have an office in New York, and among other duties, he is to see that they are not defrauded in their passage through this country. The House took up the report of the Com mittee of Flections, which concludes with a resolution that " B. M. Kitchen is not entitled to a seat in this House as a representative in the 38th Congress from the seventh Congres sional district in Virginia." Mr. Dawes made a speech in support of the resolution and of the report. The committee could not satisfy themselves that there had been such a freedom of election in that district as to warrant the conclusion that Mr. Kitchen is the choice of the loyal voters of the whole district. Messrs. Smith, of Ky., and Whaley, of Va., spoke in favor of Mr. Kitchen's claim. Tbe question was taken and the House de clared Mr. Kitchen not entitled *o a seat. On motion of Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, a joint resolution was passed< instructing tbe Commit tee on the Conduct of the war, or such members thereof as they may designate, to proceed to Fort Pillow^ and investigate all the facts and circumstances attending the rebel attack and capiure of Fort Pillow, and that they report as soon as practicable.

The Confederate conscription is suspended in the First Congeressional District of North Carolina, and amnesty offered to all North Carolinians who are or who have been in the U. S. service. LOCAL NEWS. Tub Trial of Cornelius Tuell fob trr Murder of his Wikb.?The trial of this case was resumed at!) o'clock this morning, before Judge Fisher, at which time the jury were brought into the court-room from their quar ters at the Metropolitan in charge of tlie bailiffs, and the prisoner was brought from the jail in charge of one of the guards. At the opening of the cour. there were but few persons pres ent, but as the morning advanced the court room became crowded with spectators. David Mahonry, who resided near the prisoner for seven months, was called by defence, to prove that he had known deceased to drink and to he very quarrelsome. Tbe prosecution objected, but as the prosecu tion had attempted to prove that deceased was industrious and temperate, the Court admitted the testimony, and the witness testified that he lelt the premises two veais ago last March. During the last three months witness resided there he was subjected to frequent annoyance by the deceased quarreling with him without any provocation. The deceased, when in liquor, was quarrelsome, and witness had olten beard her abusing her husband. When sober she was kind and mild, but quarrelsome when in liqucr. Ky the prosecution.?Witness never saw the deceased strike the prisoner, but seen her throw articles of furniture after him. Mrt. Ma > y Maiumry testiiied that the prisoner was usually a quiet, well-disposed man, ex cept when' provoked. For the first three month's witness lived near Tuell and his wife, the deceased was a goed neighbor?the latter months she was very disagreeable, because ol the quarrels of the deceased' with her husband. Witness saw the deceased throw a piece of the stove and grid-iron at her hmliand, and heard her call him a a?d Irish . Heard deceased crying, and once saw her with a black eye. Witness never heard the husband whipping the deceased, hut had heard her crying. The cries were similar to those used at an Irish wake. Mrs. Barthclcmty recalled by the defence.? Witness saw .lirismy going in the house of de ceased just alter the fuss began. There is no fire-place up iiairs in the house. Jiimes Tw IU ^-on of the prisoner, wa3 recalled, and on his appearance on the stand the pris oner became deeply affected, giving way to tears and sobs. The boy also, was affected, as upon yesterday. He denied saying in his evi dence yesterday that hi? father told him to make a lire up stairs. Mr. Gcorgt Ballard recalled by defence.?The coffin, when it was carried out by himself and prisoner, had no sheet abont it. Witness drove round the alley way. The coffin was ft colored pine one. By the prosecution.?'The boys were driven away by the prisoner, and they could not have seen what they put in the wagon, and they could not have seen anything white. The body was wrapped in a sheet and put 1n the coffin, but the lid was not secured down properly. It vrns tight enough, however, to prevent anyone seeing inside. At hall-past It! o'clock the counsel, after some conver^RMona! discussion, agTeed to close the case, and Judge F sher stated that he was wil ling to sit until midnight in order to hear the counsel, te whom, in a case of this kind, fuil scope should be given. Mr. Feudal I, for the prosecution, opened thp c:<se. stating that he had hoped Jbat some cir cumstances would have been proved rebutting in some measure the evidence of the prosecu tion: and, continuing, he spoke of the enormity of tlie deed, which was murder, and referring to the evidence of the boy, defended the Distrlet Attorney in placing the son of the prisoner on the stand. Mr. Phillips followed,, sifting the evidence and referring to some portions of it, which h<> argued was inconsistent. The act was com mitted, doubtless, when the husband found bis wile drunk: and he argued thatat the time rea son was temporarily dethroned, and the pris "oner should have tb#benefitsof all doubts, and that a verdict of not more than manslaughter should be rendered. J While the case is being argued, the prisoner .is in the dobk, with his face on his hands be tween his knees, and evidently feels his posi tion, trequently groaning and sobbing when allusion is made to his boy as tbe circumstances 11 the murder is recited. It is thought that the argument will be closed tbis evening, and that a verdiet Will be ren dered to-night Matter* in Georgetown.?The damage to the upper div isions of the Chesapeake and Ohio ?Canal by the last freshet is now being ascer tained. i .
