Arbitration, &c. ADDITIONAL EXTRACT8 From the Foreign Papers received at the Office of the New-York Herald. The Oregon Question In KnglunU?The Pro bable View of ?lr Robert Pool. [from the London Thne?, Feb. 38.] The great importance of the present debate, and other matters of domestic interest, have hitherto prevented us from recurring, as we had intended, to Mr. Gallatin's proposal. It is of a twofold charac ter. It first intimates a doubt.whether the Oregon territory should be partitioned at all. Secondly, it proposes that any partition made should give to Great Britarti all the region north of the parallel 48fc north latitude from the sea, through the Straits, in cluding Quadra and Vancouver's Island, leaving to the United States the country south of that line, and the sole possession of the Columbia River, and the harbors in the south of the Straits. Both these sug gestions are worthy of being weighed, not only on account of the position and character of the person from whom they emanate, but of the various and prospective interests which the adoption of either of them must afreet. Now we will, in jus tice to Mr. Gallatin, suppose that the first suggestion is made bona fide. The consequence, then, of its being carried out would be this?both England and the United States would either continue in precise ly the same relation as that in which they now stand towards each other in Oregon, that is, the sovereign ty of both States would remain in abeyance ; they would each be joint tenants in the use rather than in the seisin of the Oregon; or else the Oregon would be recognised as an independent State, guaranteed in its rights, and protected by the joint guardianship of the American Republic and the British Crown.? It in to the latter contingency, rather than to the for-1 mer, that our attention should, for the present, be confined, inasmuch as the tone of American politi cians hardly encourages the notion that the joint occupancyTof the contested country is possible tor any length of time, and th** character of the present dispute must have warned the states men of both countries that to leave the ques tion of sovereignty open can only complicate the difficulties of the case, and increase the embar rassment of their successors. Recurring, then, to the alternative left by the first suggestion, let us ask what must be the inevitable consequences of erect ing Oregon into an independent State 1 In the first place, it is almost impossible not to foresee that its government would oe democratic. It is almost equally certain that its tendencies would be anti Anglican. This result necessarily flows from the anterior condition of its settlement. Its contiguity to the republic of the United States has within a few years caused a migratory influx of citizens from the latter, and holds out the prospect of a continual im migration for some years to come. Those who understand the feelings of all emigrants, and parti cularly of American emigrants, will at once agree that the new government thus constituted must have prejudices and sympathies of an anti-British nature. Nor would any counterpoise to this gene ral prejudice be supplied by a co-extensive influx of British subjects. The colonization of the Ore gon has for the last two or three years been almost entirely conducted by Americans; whilst the settle ment of our own people has been considerably thwarted, if not wholly prevented, by the exclusive privileges of the Hudson's Bay Company. Their servants have been settled and their forts and huts erected on different sites throughout the territory in dispute; but no extensive colonization has been carried on by other subjects ot the Crown. This circumstance alone, apart from all others, would operate to our prejudice, if the Oregon became an independent State; but. when it is viewed in con junction with the vicinity of a great republican go vernment, it is impossible not to foresee that British interests would be swamped, even if they w?J* not openly disregarded or wantonly M&sd. by the hostility of AmencauJprejudice, and the col lision of democratic influence. It would be im-, possible for the British Government to urge as a precedent stipulation, that the traditionary rights of British subjects, or the former privileges of a British company should be respected in a new re public. And, even if such a stipulation received the assent of the other contracting parties, it would be impossible for the British crown to insure its fulfilment, without recourse to a conflict which duty and humanity enjoin it to avoid or to defer. How ever adapted, therefore, the Oregon may be for ex tensive colonization?however its magnitude and extent may entitle it to the rank of a separate state ?no English Minister who cares for the interest* of English subjects, can propose or accepts proposal for a scheme which, at the outset, would injure the interests of the latter, and hereafter sacrifice them, by aggressive violation or collusive intrigue, to American ambition. No one who has attended to the recent debates of Congress, and remarked the sentiments which are most popular in the United States, can be ignorant that the American Govern ment contemplate the extension of their great em pire from the shores of the Atlantic to those of the Pacific, and that the American people look for ward to the time when no European power shall dare to interfere with the mutual policy of the nu merous Stefs spread over the great continent of the West. Hoyr far such a consummation is desir able for the peace and happiness of nations, it is not for us to say. It is sufficiently apparent that it is not the interest of tthe English people, nor the duty ot an Jtaglish Minister, to play into the hands of the United States, by assenting to the organization of new governments, which must either become merged in the growing do minions of their powerful neighbors, or sub sidiary to their designs. It were wiser to wait the time when the conflicting interests of the separate States, and the encroachments ot the fede ral government, shall dissolve a union incompatible with intestine jealousy or foreign fears. The Prox imity of British possessions, and the estab ishment of British principles in North America, will always afford a resort and a protection to those who fear the growth of popular license, and seek an escape from popular turbulence. For this reason, no less than for the preservation ot national honor, it is the duty of our government to see that we secure for our subjects a firm footing, for our laws a permanent validity, on that continent which has been peopled by our countrymen and governed by the maxims of our constitution. It is not extent, so much as cer tainty and definitiveness of dominion, that we ought to care for. It is not our object to advance anv new claim, so mueh as to abide by an old and iust one. The project for giving a new constitution to Oregon would be a merger of our present right; but it would eventually prove to be a surrender a capitulation, and a difptcc. ... , Let us now turn to Mr. Gallatin's second propo sal He would give us alt north of 48i degreea north latitude, in a liae running east Irom Fucaa Straits to the present recognised line ol division. He would reserve for his own country Admiralty Inlet and its aounds. and the sole the Columbia River. Now, the very first thing that strikes us is this s?It has been urged thaut would be anomalous or inconvenient to divide the use o the Columbia River between English and Ameri cana. Supposing (the Americans eay^ that we re tain possession of both banks of the Columbia, how can English vessels pass and repass without danger ol collision between the sailors ot the two powers i Now, we ask, is there not the same chance ol colli sion between them when the two powers ha\ o an equal right to the right of Da Fnea's Struts 1 To concede an equally divided possession in the straits, end to make snch a partition of the adjacent land as shall exclude either of the possessory nations from the harbors of the other, is at least ss like to breed fends end contests ss the equal right of navigation in s river. The navigation of the coast is difficult, the threading of the bay is intricate, and it is easy to conceive that in rough weather disputes may arise between American and British seamen b a to the rights of their respective eonntries. Each of ihem.hsve been accustomed to enjoy equal privileges, and to regard themselves equally as masters on these seas and this ? it will hardly, therefore, be wondered at that they should reciprocally feel exclusion and reas tance to be arbitrary and offensive. So that, in truth, the argument against the division of the Co lumbia would apply with equal strength to the divi sion of the straits and partition ot the harbors, with this d lflerence?that ifthe harbors of Admiralty In let. kc . we the best, exclusion from them grounds a greater grievance on our aide. But the fact it this?partition and division are now matters of ex pediency. Both parties are sensible that the cluma ibundea on discovery and occupancy are very d* bate able end admit of being cited on both sides alike. It is, therefore, the object of both parties to effect ouch a compromise as shall damnify neither nartv. Now, if we only get one half the harbors in Ss Zona's Strait* and are wholly excluded from the once by the arrangement. Our object, we repeat, ie not extent of territory. We wish to have eur ter ritory accurately defined, in order to prevent heart burmnga and auarrels between the colonists of the two nations. But we contend only for the joint use of those privileges which have always been enjoyed in common by both nations, and the exclusive pos session of which we feel that we have as much right to as our competitors, and are more able to enforce, if we so choose. But we are unwilling to provoke a war which we know would be unnatural, and h pe may be unnecessary. IVt art willing to ctdr the title of tovereignty and dominion over the greater peart of the Oregon. We only 1 , require that the commercial advantage! of the country be continued to m?. We will not give up to the United States places "re stored" to us by Spain. We will not renounce our right to participate in the navigation of that great river which, if not discovered first, was oertainly traced furthest by our own people. The joint navi gation of the Columbia?the right of harbors on the coast?and the right of traffic for the Hudson's Bay servants on one bank of the river, are, we think, demands neither unjust nor extravagant. Nor do we think that their concession would be incompati ble with the reserved sovereigaty of the United States in the districts which are washed by the wa ters of the Columbia. [From the London Oazetts, March S j The news from the United States, which has been received this morning, is of a much less pacific character than that brought us by the lata arrivals ; and justifies the fears we have repeatedly expressed of the determined spirit of hostility which pervades a powerful party in the United States. It appears from these advices that the Government of the Uni ted States flatly declines to refer the Oregon ques tion to arbi tration, and insists that England posses ses no claim whatever on that territory. The news papers of the Union, entirely opposed as they are to the offensive position towards England, which has been assumed by their Government, profess to re gard this latest of its demonstrations with unfeigned alarm, and to regard it as an act of defiance which will put an end to all further pacific negotiations.? Of such importance, indeed, was the position of I affairs regarded by Mr. Pakenham, that a swift sail ing vessel was said to have been charted by him for | the purpose ol obtaining fresh instructions from his Government. The advices from Washington state that whilst the House was in committee on the state of the Union, a message was received from the Presi dent, accompanied by the correspondence which has taken place, since August last, in reference to the foreign relations of the United States. It appears that the American Minister had been requested to ask Lord Aberdeen it the warlike preparations said to be making in England had any view to the pro bability of a rupture with the United States. Mr. M'Lane. having communicated with his lordship, declared his belief that they had not. A correspon dence has taken place between Mr. Pakenham and Mr. Buchanan ; a summary of which will be found elsewhere. The latter gentleman, on the part of his Government, declines arbitration of any kind. A division on the subject was expected to take place in the House on the 9th, the day on which the Patrick Henry sailed. Let us hope that the result of the deliberation of the committee of the House, to which the correspondence is referred, will give evi dence of more wisdom than the past consideration of the question by the Senate has exhibited. The present aspect of affairs is any thing but satisfactory. [From the Pari* Journal de* Debet*.] * * * I: is for the advantage of the Union to remain at peace with England. The first interest of a people before whom a question of war is placed is, to avoid certain defeat. To all men of sound sense it must be evident, as well at Washing ton as in London, that the first campaign mnst turn to the advantage of Great Britain, for that power has for several years past been making immense prepara tions. Ships and steamers, stores, sailors and ma rines, are all ready in her arsenals. America, on the contrary, has nothing to oppose to her formida ble adversary. The agricultural, commercial, and manufacturing interests would suffer immensely from a war. Cotton, which forms the principal cru de of American exportation, would, bv a rigorous blockade, be kept in the ports of New Oxleana, Mo- , bile, Charleston, and Savannah. War would prove the rum of the greatest part of tha capitalists m the twelve or thirteen States whe cultivate that precious article. The eommerce of the ports of | New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, which have dispensed so much capital throughout the country would be destroyed, seeing that England ia in a position to blockade all those ports, lor her immense navy will enable her to do so. The only retaliation which America could inflict would be by means of her cruisers and her privateera. Those would doubtless cause much injury to British com merce, but it would be trifling when compared with what America would suffer. Lastly, the prizes made by the privateers would not repair the injnry which the American regular commerce would experience. And in a country thus impoverished, what market would the national manufacturers find, even when Ireed by war from the competition of the English productions'? Should hostilities occcur between England and the United States, the latter would be menaced by a social subversion, for it ia indubitable that an English army would try to proclaim the Iree dom of the slaves in that country. The convention ot 1827,will be adhered to by the United States; no tice of the cessation of the treaty will be given; but, instead of being a signal for war, it will be the pre amble ot a resolution which will sati-fy the United States as completely as the rational citizens of that republic can desire, which will preserve entire the honor of England,and which will preserve that which the enlightened men of all countries should endea vor to maintain?the peace of the world, being, as it is, the first benefit conferred by civilization and the hrst guarantee of liberty. [From the Madrid d*i Comereio] An article in the Timet, of London, written in view of the preponderance of the United Statea of America, and the weakness to which Mexico is re duced by her internal revolutions, appears to us a very remarkable one. The London Journal?a jour nal of sound doctrines of government, and the moat influential in the politics of that country?deplores the condition at which affairs have arrived in Ame rica, and laments because the emancipation of the ancient Spanish colonies has entailed an evil upon Europe. We have at aundry times turned our at tention to this question, and some years ago we em bodied our views in a political pamphlet. If Europe contributed in no small degree to promote and as sist the insurrection of the Spanish colonies, she did not perceive that she suicidally sacrificed her politi cal influence in an equal ratio, even if she gained in her mercantile and industrial enterprises. It ia not easy to combine every thing at once. For the manu facturing interests of England, the rapid progress ot the North American Union has been useful, and the emancipation of those States has been more profit able to Great Britain than if they had been maintain- j ed as an English colony. Under colonial domina tion, and subject to the mother-conn try, the States of the Union would not have attained the rank of a first-rate power; their population would no doubt not have increased in a greater proportion than has been observed in those parts for fifty years; and for a corroboration of this truth it is only ne cessary to turn our eyes to the English colonies in those regions. England finds in tha markets of the United States of America the principal outlet for her commerce snd manufactures; and, without donbt, the amount of the value of her exportation* may be placed as the first and greatest of the commercial balance between the other nations ot the world. If, in this part, she gained in wealth, ahe lost in power, and trora her colonies arose a colossal flag which at present curbs and restrains her. Polities! economists will be able to calculate the exact value of thisdtflerenoe. We hare adduced this example in order to prove that the Machiavelliam of foreigners, although tha J Spaniards contended with the great captain of the age, has been fatal to us. Instead of assisting us, and baing grateful for and compensating our sacri fices, they contributed to the emancipation of our colonies; and as there was no Washington in them, neither were the customs of oar colonists like those of Philadelphia; they have been torn for the lest 90 years by civil discord, the fruits of which the Uni ted States and Brazil will gather in coarse of time. Behold here the grand error of European govern ments, and principally that of England, which had the greatest interest in the non-separauon of those countries from Spaio. . . * Thin is acknowledged by The Timet, and this il lustrious journal would now desire to see a monarchy t reeled in Mexico,which would serve aaa centre and basin of peace, in order that, under ita shadew, the wars between the republics of that extensive territory might eease; and with this motive our contempora ry, alter some luminous reflections, says.? As fsr as Spam herself is concerned, such an en terprise would not be unworthy of the man* whose military success, and whose resolute character have already restored so much of the lustre of the Span ish monarchy. A Prince of the House of Spain, bringing with him n foroe capable of restoring order to the country, and the guarantees of a constitution al government for the protection of its liberties, would be hailed with enthusiasm by a considerable * It is aaraatef 8WS amusing ts And our bpaalsb contemporary, in

' -g number oi Mexicans, and would confer immense benefits on that people?re-establishing its relations with the maritime and constitutional powers of Eu rope. Amongst the cognate suitors (relations) ot Queen Isabella, it would not be difficult to point out the individual best fitted lor such an enterprise, by his personal qualities and his liberal sentiments ? And even if the United States should attempt to in terfere in this question in a manner for which there is not the least justification, they would not certain ly be able to oppose the political inarch of the united powers of Europe, when their sole object would be to preserve a national government in New Spain, ana to repair the disastrous effects ot abortive revo lutions upon the provinces which were once incor porated with the Spanish crown." We approve the idea of our English contempora ry, but a few amendments suggest themselves to our minds. If the Mexicans, for example, looking to their in terests, should Bay spontaneously?" We wish to be transformed into a constitutional monarchy; and without wars, without disasters,without opposition, we accept a Spanish prince, in the same way that the Swedes, the Belgians, and the Greeks accepted foreign princes, who must have entertained less sympathy with them than, he whom we adopt,"? we at once agree that this declaration would be a blessing to Spaniards, to both the Americana, to Eu rope, and especially to England. But does our es teemed contemporary believe that Spain could op poee any force, if the slighteat opposition were of fered 1 Does it imagine that the United States would not use those lorces which are being or Snized diplomatically, and without ostentation, for e purpose of impeding the creation of a monarchy which might be extended to the Pacific, which might annex the Galifornias,and oppose, farther on, its rights in the Oregon 1 Would it not also secret ly influence, in opposition to our idea, the ponder ous sceptre whicli rules in South America 1 What will France say to this T Without an European league we deem the proposal of the Timet impossi ble.

Tlie Punjaub and the Bibbs. Ia order to make the country which is now the seat of war ia Central Asia, in some measure better known to the public, the following remarks by Von Orlich, an officer in the Prussian service, who visit ed these countries in the early part of the year 1843, will no doubt prove acceptable. At the period this officer was at Lahore, Snere Singh, the unfortunate ?accessor of Runjeet Singh, was Maharajah of La hore. The Punjaub, or Land of the Five Rivers, has a surface of about 180,000 square miles, is of a trian gular shape, and bounded by the Indus, the Sutlej, and the Himalayas. In these mountains rise four rivers, which flow through the Puniaub,and form a junction with the Indus; thus dividing this country into four unequal portions, of which the first ana most western, lies betwixt the Indus and Jelum. It is about 800 miles in breadth, and being very barrren and uncultivated, has but a scanty population. Nu merous wave-like hills rise to some height in the centre, and interspersed by deep precipitous ravines cover the face of tne country,thus rendering commu nication difficult; while the rivers flowing between high steep banks, prevent the employmet of their waters for the purpose of irrigation. There is but little fertile soil, the land being covered with brush wood, nor are there any towns of great importance. The Jelum is a broad clear stream, of from 800 to 400 yards in width, running ia a sandy bed, at the rate of about two miles an hour. The temperature in December was, at sunrise, 45deg. Fahr ; at noon 51 deg. "The second portion is enclosed between the riv er Jelum and Chenab, and, with the exception of a range of low hills, which, crossing the Jelum, run parallel with its left bank, is quite flat, mostly cover ed with jungle, but tbe soil being light and sandy, grass ana roots are so abundant tnat large herds of cattle, sheep, eamels, See , are maintained. By means of wells, artificial irrigation ia practised; but by the aid of camels, (he whole country might be conducted into a most fertile and productive garden. The Chenab is a clear smooth stream, 100 yards in width, and 10 feet deep. "The third doab (space of land between two riv ers) between the Chenab and Ravel, which latter is the smallest of the tour streams, not being naviga ble till below Lahore, where it has a breadth of ikiO feet, and a depth of about three and a half feet. The surface of this portion is parched and uncultivated, two-thirds of it being overrun with wild indigo, ta marinds, and other tropical plants. Canals, conduct ed into this district from the mountain streams, might make this also one of the most fertile portions of the country; yet, unlortunately, it is only in the immediate neighborhood of tbe towns and villages that the earth is tilled. A large but neglected canal shows that greater cultivation once existed here.? Several considerable towns lie on the high road from Lahore to Attock, among which the most im portant is the Mussulman town of Ramnuggur, on the left bank of the Chenab. "The,amallest and most neglected of these four divisions is that between the Ravel and the Sutlej, only 240 miles broad. Here are situated the greatest cities of the Punjanb, Lahore, Umhtsir (essence of ambrosia) and Kassaur. The Sutlej ia tne most im portant of the tributaries of the Indus > its width is from 350 to 400 yards, and in the rainy season, it overflows its banks, rendering tertile the surround ing country to some distance. "Besides this country, so richly blessed by nature, bnt so neglected by man, the provinces of Peshawar, in the north, and Moultan, on the right bank of the Indus as far as Miltan Bote, also belong to the king aom of tbe Sikhs. The whole extent of the domin ion ruled by the Maharajah may be estimated at about 250.000 square miles, with 6,000,000 inhabi tants, and a revenue of from two or three million pounds sterling. It is divided into provinces and dis tricts which, for the payment ;of stipulated tribute, are entrusted to the government of officers called Sirdars, who natnraHy endeavor to squeeze as much as possible from the country. Moultan, whieh is governed by a Hindoo, rejoices under the best ad ministration, white Peshawar is the most impover ished and oppressed." Captain Van Orlich then mvea a brief summary of the history of the rise of the Sikhs, from which it appears that the origin of this sect dates from the end of the 15th century. At first they were mild and tolerant in their doctrines and practice: bat throughout the 16th century, having been much op pressed by the Mussulmans, who at last (1606) mur dered their spiritual head, the harmless Sikhs were transformed into frantic soldiers, and ander Har Govind, the son of their murdered priest, arose as open enemies and avengers against their oppressors. In the course of the succeed tag century, their doc trines underwent some slight modifications. Dif ference of easte was abolished, peculiar customs were introduced, every man was bound to serve as a soldier and bear some species of arms, the use of tobacco was forbidden, their clothes were to be of a uniform color, (blue.) and their hair and beards to be allowed to grow. 1 he Akolio, fanatic fakirs, or wandering priests, have great influence among them ; they recognise no sovereign, sad only en dure tbeii own princes, whom they censure as they please, and whom, it they act contrary to their views, they deprive of life. " Their usual weapon, (saya Von Orlich.) is a species of quoit, about a foot in diameter, with sharp edges, and with which, adreitly thrown, they can cot off a man's head at some distance. After relating the political history of the Sikh country under Runjeet Sing, nntil the accession of Shere Sing, and the subseqaent sanguinary palace revolutions, with all which our readers must be well acqaainted, he concludea with expressing an opinion favorable to the Attock as a boundary for British India. These countries have frequently been explored by Europeans, the following travellers having at various tunes visited Cashmere sad the Punjaub i?

Oregg suspecting that the mare was atolrn, went and locked tier up in the barn, and loft the negro in charge of two men until he could go to Phenix after a warrant.

About twenty fflnutes after Taylor and Oregg had left Phenix, A. T. Williams and I. P. Bruce, who atarted from Auburn in purauit, at 11 o'clook A. M. of Friday, reached Phe nix, and learned the above facta?tbey waited at Phenix a ataort time, expecting Taylor to return with tho negro, but becoming uneaay, went off towarde Oregg'a. end abeut a mile tnia aide of hia home, met Taylor coming with the murderer. They took him to Phenix, and thai* Taylor, Wiiliama and Bruco watched him that night, and in tha morning took him into tUo wagon of Wiiliama and Bruca, and brought liiin to Auburn and delivered him to tho Sheriff. On their retai n they met Burlington and Vanderheydon at Baldwiun illp, eleven milaa ihif aide, they having tailed to get on the right ttack. The negro, aa we under aland, givea tnia vera ion of tha murderHe aays ha knocked at the froDt door, and went into the sitting room, and Van Neat aaked him what he wanted. Ho replied that he bad been up e piece and wai cold and wanted to warm: that he went up to the atove; that Vau Neaa got up off of hia chair; that he bed bis knife under hia coat, and had laft hia club, which had a knife in the end of it, el tho galeithet ho had no gun; that ho made a paaa at Van Neaa, and stabbed him, after which Van Neaa went to tho door of the kitchen and spoke to Mr*. Van Neaa and laid ha waa stabbed; that ha afterwards stabbed her. Tha negro is confused in hia statement about the time he had a scuf fle with Mrs. Wvkofl'. but thinks he stabbed her with tha knife in the end of hia club, at the gate, alter he had tha scuffle with Van Arsdale, and that she then cut him with a butcher knife. He says that Van Aradale struck him with the candleatick and be ilippcd down stairs, and that hia knife blade then waa broken. At one time he assign ed aa a motive for this act, that ha waa unjustly impri soned for five years for stealing a hone, when he was not guiltv; and that tho State owed him tor hia time, and aa ha could not get pay in any other way, he waa going to take hia revenge in that way; but hia storiea are con tradictory on this point. After the horse on which the negro rod# from Van Naat'a ?tumbled and fell, near New Guinea, the murderer pro ceeded on loot to the big dam, which he crossed and then proceeded through the east part of the village upon the north road leading to Skaneateloa, to tho farm occupied by Mr. Burrington, where ho stole the grey mare ; he mounted on bare back and with only a halter, end struck the road to Syracuse, about two mllea east of Elb ridge. Ho passed through Syracuse soon after daylight, and went from thence through SeliDa, Liverpool, and Clay Corners to Phmnix. Justice Bostwick made an anami nation of Freeman, yaaterdsy afternoon, at the jail, with the view of seeing whether any other paraon waa con cerned with him. The following ia the result of tho ex amination " Examination of William Freeman, March 18,1846.? Nobody ever told me that Mr. Van New got me to State prison. I know who did gat ma there. Simpson, the constable. Jack Furman, and another one?do not re member the name?and a woman. Her name is Godfrey. She swore to the lose of tho horse. Mrs. Godfrey live* on the middle road to Syracuse. Do you know thai anybody went into the dooryard of Mrs. Godfrey on Thursday night 1 Never have talked with any white man about having boon sent to State prison, except Es quires Paine and Bostwick." Justice Bostwick also examined John Gabriel, a negro, heretofore arrested on suspicion, and Ne thaniel Horsey and his wife, in relation to the mur der. Gabriel helped Freeman -to grind tha knives, but did not know any thing further about tho mat ter. Hersey swore that ho had beard Fraaman threaten the life of John Do Pup a black man, but had not beard him say any thing about murdering any body alaa.? Nothing waa elicitad on tha examination tending to tkrew any light on the murder of the Van Noss family, and Gabriel waa discharged. One Incident connected with the horrible murder of the Van Naas family, deserves to be mentioned. When old Mr*. Wykoff got to Mr. Brooks' and gave the alarm, and when it waa supposed that there we* a band of five or six concerned, W. Henry Brooke, a young lad 13 years of ago, although several men were present, volunteered to com# to Auburn for medical aid, and other assistance. Ho cam# down on horseback, alarmed* Messrs. James Law, William Stephana, and others. Messrs. Law and Stephana immediately turned out end proceeded to the residence of Van Neaa, and de voted themselves to the assistance of the family, and pur suit of the murderer with a zeal and energy that de serve the highest recommendation. Their intelligence communicated to ua, and our drat extra,was tha causa of the arrest by Taylor. The Syracuse Daily Star states that the negre Free* man, the murderer of the Van Neaa family, was born in Auburn in 18-J3. When quite young, and before he went to prison, ho became offended at a young woman where be was living, for some trivial ofleooe, and draw a knife and rushed upon her with the intention of taking her life. She escaped, however, and ha was permitted to escape punishment by making a promise to behave him self in future. The Star further states that Freeman waa sent to Auburn for five years tor horse stealing, and swoie vengeance against the officers if he ever got out In his conisssion, upon being asked what took him to the house, he said, " The world rolled hhn there " When aaked why he murdered them, he replied that ha had " no reason to give at ail." He says he had no gun with him, but a club about three lest long, in the end of which was placed e sharp blade Ave or six inches long. The luneral of tha murdered individuals was attended by about 3,000 persona. The Syracuse Journal mentions it as a singular fact, that Wm. Freeman, the murderer of tho Van Ness ft mil y, was cousin at tha Freeman who waa executed in Oeon dago county some Ave or aix year* since, for murder ? There must be some bad blood running in tho veins of ike Freeman tribe. It,is stated that wm. Freeman is one-quarter Indian, his mothar having bean one-half In Excitement at Ithaca?Moke Murder.

It was supposed at the time that they had been mur dered, bat as the bodies coold not be found, be was only tried ior a lesser offence. We shall probably have tall particulars to-morrow.?Syracuse Journal, March 17. Darino Attempt at Robhery and Murder ? There was a daring attempt at murder near Eats Worcester, in this county, on Saturday, the 14th instant. Two men, one named in H. Little, and the ether Cha?. I. Hunt, were travelling the same rood. They became quite familiar in conversation, in which each stated the object of their journey, he. Arriving at a pieoe of woods, Little told Hunt that he had some money buried about twenty rods from the road, in tha thicket, and da sired Hunt to go with him and dig it up. Hunt content ed, and thay soon oamo to tho place whose Little pre tended the money was buried Both commoocod dig ging, whoa Little suddenly turned end struck Hunt over the heed with achorrystidk he hod in his hand, which was sbout two inches in dismetor. Tho club proved brittle, end broke at the first blow, to which circum stance Hunt probably owes his oacapo, although severe ly wounded. Little immediately fled, but was arretted by persons in pursuit, before he had|gone Ave miles, and brought bach to Last Worcester, at Whieh plane, en Monday last, an examination waa held before Justice Joebue K. Champion, when Little was committed to Jail, charged with feloniously assaulting Charles I. Hunt, and beating him with an intent to kill. Little is said to bo from Montgomery county, aad Hunt from Bra awe. Little repreented to Hnnt that ho waa going to work In Troy, and Huattold him ho was going tut en buelnaee for his father. From this it eppoora that Little decoyed I of money supposed to bo ia his psaeseelsu. He wiU, I probably, have his trial at tha Aprfl oyer end terminer. I ?
