ADDITIONAL NEWS PROM EUROPE. T%? Dominican Treaty with the UnlUd VbIM ?utr? the Slmveholdlng Interest ud Jk. nnciiitl? > ? [From the London New*. Jan. 9 ] Ob Um 28th of December, 1801, a single watch bad Mt on the ateep promontory of Samaaa, on the east coast of Bt. Domingo, counting tae ahipa of war which came to invade the Island. The Pint Consul hal ahead/ decreed the re eaUbliahment of ?lavs 17; and he now aent fifty-four ships of war to aaoooqner the French part ot the ialaod. and reduce the colored population to bondage. Last month, after a lapse of lifty three tears, was again a critical December at 8am ana. For some time past it has boen known te all who were aware of the import ance of the hot, aad wbo therefore attended pro serin to it, that tbe alaveh ldlng party in the United Btatee were resolved to get possession of St Do ?to go, aa well as Cub?; and that the rem nant of President Pierce's term of offljs would be diligently employed in preparation for soch annexation. Tbe American slaveholder* can not be ignoiant, as too many Europeans are, of the real cause of the horrors of the St. Domingo war, which the? choose to treat aa a conaequenoe of negro emancipation. They oannot bat know that the war waa oze of rase ? between the whites and the mul ) at toe* ? aad that the slaves were released only when they were wanted as a reinforce nent in the strug gle. That release gave the world the services and MM exam le of Tonssaint L'Ouverture? a man, a leader, and a ruler ? whom the filibustering Amerl ?at a would tod it bard to match from among th-ir ?giutora. He waa the solitary watJhman on the Bamana heights on that December morning, flfty thiee jesis ago. His place is not vacant, It germs. There are eyea wide a vake at Saraina, and ears open to tidings from the friends and foes of social and political freedom ?veiywbere. On the 6th of last month the treaty pwpoeed by the United States? the first step tv wards annexation- was rejected by toe Dominican Congress, without a dissentient vote. And why? What is ti e toiemoat reason alleged for the rejec tion? It was the case of Manuel Pereira, tbe sea man in tbe British aervioe, whose imprisonment at Charleston on scoount of his color, was brought be fore Parliament by Mr. Moncktoa Milnes, k?pt in view by t e Uativ N-wt, and mtde the subject of aegoiiatior and legal proceedings between the Bri tain wd American governments, and in the courts of the United State?. The St. Domingo legislators have kept their eye noon that case, and have re?d the AsKiican treaty by its light; and finding that tae third clauie denied equal rights to them in tne Southern State* ot tbe Uuion, tbet with ut hesitation lefuted tieir suction to it. They know the ooase Snencee. Tbey have been watenful enough to see latthe xlaveholdiug pover ia the United States, though numerically weak, has iu fact determined the whole policy and ac inn of tbe country, fr in the time when tbe institution of slavery iras first practically brought in'-o question, rathir more taan twt nty years ago. They have taken warning by the annexation of Texas? as high-handed a theft aa the Czar or Lis precece-aoraevsr perpetrated. ft ey na-.ei stand, no doubt, t1. e t rue history <?( tbe Sem sole war, and ot tbe Mcxicon war? no less than of the repeal of the Mif*ouri com,>romisn, aul its oon aeqoeo es? now becoming too burdensome for the great repnblio to endure. They have watched the Cuba business throughout, aad no doubt have their own opinion of Lord John Rus aell'a slashing letter, and Mr. Everett'a auicidal re ply. They ail know about Manuel Pereira, we dnd, and the care taken of bis person bv Uis Charles ton gaolers, and of his rights by British statesmen. Tbey also know that their temp'.lng promju tory and bay of Sameta will bring upoa them euch expeditions as Cuba baa been vi sited and threatened with; and mde d the Ame ?cau plenipotentiary on t< e spot has made ao see et of the risk. He has thr3wn out hid'* that Grejtown ia not, the only olace tnat the Am9t?evis ssn lay in aahea, and 'h^t the city ot Si Do mingo is within their range. His countrymen 1m med ately picked a quarrel In thu roaostea I of Bt.

The more intolerable these netHires are foubd.the more necesoary is it to have f/tt-h onea of the same tendency. We witness aocortfit gi> the persevering declaration of tbe Piwai dent 1 bat Cuba shall be obtained; the recent attempt an the Dominican Congress, and the urgtnizati.m of a sew slave tenitory extending over 43 000,040 of acres, between the aoiubsra boundary of K-iasaa aid tne lied river. Tbe bill for constituting this sew tenitory oi Neosbo was quietly brought iu. just before the runng of Co gross. It is a 'lot of the stavebolding interest, as mu.h as the carrying on ot the slave trade ficm tbe port of Now York, whicn has recently been ascertained to be grea er taan from any other port in all these ai-aa. The Southern le gislatora and citizens tamper with p liloaophy, and emasculate literature, to prevent tneir wivea aud cbi'drt n knowing a hat is thiught of slavery in the foremost countries ot tbe worid.

It ia ao from the eat ing out sf that apostrophe so aftect'.ng to English children. " Negio woman, who sittest pining in captivity.'* All this is, in fact, the central Idea of every device for preserving the " peculiar domeatic iastiait.ou " of the aootht rn Staves from molestation? from what the planters are pleiaed to call " the narrowness of foreign opinion " on that subject. We repeat here the declaration we alwaja make to prevent mistakes when treating of American af faire, that *e are apeaking of the Southern State* and not of the whole Union. But we must ala > add ear nansl Question- How long does the entire nation ?ssn to allow the slaveholdlog intere it to represent Ma domestic policy and its foreign relations? Of ths millions of heads cf families in the United Statea, only 347,625 ate aiavenoldera; and yet the slave holoera have been tbe gu.des and masters of Amerl san politics from tbe time that the nation entered on trie retrograde path of foreign conquest and an nexation. President Pierce conjures ua all lo be lieve that hie nation haa no ambition, and explain* that all its annexations have Happened merely through manifest destiny. This destiny is becom so extremely manifest no*, that even laths snsia of our war in tbe Crimes, the Frsoch and we are carefully placing our war shioa in tte roadatead of St. Domingo; and we ahall not Minx our watch over Cuba, or any other land'which he* within trs biundery of "destiny."

"A man wan re cently proved guilty, at Indianapolis, of violating tbe ae veuth section cf the Fugitive Slave law, bat the jury would not render in their verdict unless ths Judge would promise to remit the fine the aot im poses mb a penalty for tee oftm e, which waa agrwd to, and the juty thereupon brou*:>t in their verdict, that the pr<aoi>< r ray a tine of ttfly dollar* and be >mpri??ij? <1 one hour in the court room."

[Comspondance of the Arktuu Whif ] G alex a, Dee. 19, 1854. The Martha Waahington caae which, for tne last two years, has been the untiring theme with a oer

tain olaae of newspaper publishers, has this eve ning suddenly vanished into "thin air." It will bs recollected that, at the Inst term of this court, Capt. Cumjaings, and Holland, the mate of the ill fated boat, Nicholson, the clerk, and the Messrs. Chapln, Earl, Kiseane, Cole, and others, were indieted for bntniog the boat, and also for the murder of certain passengers on board. The above named persons, except Nicholson, had been illegally kidnapped in Ohio, and dragged to this place in ire as on the charge that ibey had committed the crime in this Biae, aad fled from justice. On a motion then made for bail, the ooart very properly fixed it at a large som; bat on a?plicitioa to leduce it, on beating tbe eviden e, and on argu ment cf oounsel, Menwrs. Pike and Fowler, of your city, tbe former for toe prosecution and the latter for t e prisoners, their bail was redaoed to a reaacnab e sum and they all gave security and re turned to tbeir homes. Ai tr >s term, the captain, mate, Earl, and the Me>ai a. Cbapins, were in attendance and allready for trial. Ounsei for the State, Ur. Henry A.. Badham, State 'h Attorney, t.nd Messrs. Moore <fc Sutton, nil John C. Painter, of cais place; and Mr. Walter C "to man, of Memr bis. For tee defence, Messrs. Hanly &, Atexander, Jacksoti A Craiy,ofthis plane; Messrs. Wni T> Brown, and E. M. Yerger, of Mempnis; and Mr. Fow'er, of your cuy. Caut. Oiimn g s was 1'nt put upon h<s trial on' tbe < k< go ol murder j ?nd hi Su e, after produ on g ail herevioenoe, and making an entire failure, refused to submit it 10 the Jury on her own ev dmoa, aril entered a null* prvityui on the indictment tor murder. 1 be pat ties then being arraigned on the indict meLt tor ktiou, pleaded severally, the captain and mate, not gui:ty, and tbe three M> ssrs. Oiapin and Earl, t-p?> lai'.y to the jurisdiction ot tae court, pro testirg their inno ence of any < rime, an i averting i hat it aiiy was committed t':at th y we e at t^e time iu t/ e Stale of Ohio, and not amenable to the la vs ot tfeiv Hiate, which couid only punish those who did tbs de?-d within its limits t^ey necessarily being gui'ty ag* nts, and alone responsible. TMh plea was oe ided in their favor, and they were out barged. On this question Judge Adams delivered a wiitcea opinion, which I ptesnme will be published, and which of itself, with all legal men, aside from other cla m? to mer.t, must piace hm on ulga ground at a lawjer and a jucge. Capt. Cutnminis was thf n put upon his trial, on tbe indictment tor arson, which e oca pit d nearly a wet k. The widest le? ;al scope was given to evi den e on tfce part of t e pro-ecatnn; and even oq tbe supposition t\at it was entitled to full c-e'lit, wtic1' nob- <iy present believed, it did not eveuraue a repptctible suapidon of gu It against any of the parties charged. Yet, that the whole matter might be doubly dear, a part oi the evidence was introduced, whicu made ?he defence full, peifeot. and bey end all question. It was fully proved by olerks, mere aata draymen, and otheiH in Ciccinnati, who had bandied the pro duce and goods slumped, and by pl ots, haods and passengers on the boat, that every pound of freight for which irsuraice bad been taken, on tie part of CummlBga, the Charms, Earl, Cole, and Kiisaue, bad been actually shipped on tne boat, in good order. It wan alro proved that Cumminga had paid tO 000 fur the boat, and was making hu first \T\i> with re', iiaviog only insurance on her to tM amount of $4,600, neatly hia entire means being in vested in tre boat; and tnat he had other freight on board sufficient to m*ka the trip one ol hand some pr fit to him. It was also proved that tbe boat took fire about midnight, in the midd e of the Mississippi river, on tbe oddest night during the winter, with no moonlight, and everything aliof>ery with ice, the banks frozen, ana ice floating in the river, and at a place where the banks of tne river were mere < iflieuit to ascend man any oiher on the lower Mississippi It was also fully proved tbat the captain, mate and clerk, at tbe eminent peiilot their lives, made every eflb-t to save, aco did save nearly ail uw pas cecgers; and that Capt. Cummlngs, with Holland, the mate, in a last desperate ? Sort to save a lady and ber two little daugn.ers, wera envelope 1 in j smoke and fire; and when tbe fire ? al frightened or driven tbeir oarameu away from them witu the jawl, ne e almost miraculously saved by a c&noe trom a coal boat a eideutaliy uassiag, won h in the luht moment snaw hod ih?m t rom tbe tongue of the devouring flames, lo tbeir testimony this scK-sacii 3clng, herric conduct, aid tint ttv> fire -*aa a mere accident, tie passengeis and all the survivors tu.ly and uianimour y concumd. Indeed, in this ttie proof clear iy shewed, tbat instead of infauiy and a dung* on, L'ummings *vss rather entitled to a monu ment tor b;s c< urayn and humanity. 'i he evulerce Laving been closed lsst bight, and tbe Hme leaving faicd entirely to make proof, and tbe deter ce b wing pne>l u< mountains of evidence to as to it-move nil d< ubt>, Mr. Yerger announced :hat tje dtfen e wotnd ciose tbeir evidenoe, al'/iough :bey had several depositions not yet .eau, aod sove rsl witnesses under the rale, wbie^i the prosecuMon mi|.bt call in ard cross-examlue if they thought propi r, and at tne same time proposed to submit be esse to the jury without argument. This the SMseiuHcj) declired, announcing that three of them esirtd to address tbe jury. Tne court tben, ai'u>r staling that three on eath side might arnue the cause, being Lmikd to two hours each, adjourned till this morning. When tbe court met this morning, Mr. Fowler arose snd announced to the court that tils colleagues i ao ifrolved that under no contingency would tuera be bat one speecb tor tfce defence, and again calmly proposed to submit the cause to tbe jary without sr> argument at all, which the prosecution again declired, assigning as one reason, that one ot them, Mr. rainier, from tbe position which be bad held in the case, felt it incumber^ on him to addreu tne jnry, and argue tbe tacts and law involved. It being ?ben ascertaiLed tbat be, as well a a Mr. Csleman, Fowler and others, would speak, a number of ladies assembled to the entertainment. Mr. Palmer spoke tre full two honrs allotted nim, in behalf of the pro secution, and i.aopg ether things, intimated that the counsel fcr tbe defence wished to avoid an encounter with him, on tbe law aod facta, waa the reason for their proposition. When he bad conduded, Mr. Fowler a#ain, tbe third tune, proposed, and said ae did it in all "aLdor and seriousness, that aa the gentleman had now defined his position and unbur dered himself, they wodd still aubmit the cause without an> argument on their part. Tbe propo sition waa tlen accepted; and, attar an able charge tr. m tbe court, the jury, after an abeenoe of fifteen mil utee, returned avercict of "not guilty." Hal land was also then discharged. Thus baa ended in smoke, a prosecution with which the publi) has been regaled with miraculous s.ories ot horrid crime, for two years paat.
