Our Paaauia Coircip?U(lfncf. I'A XMtA,<ht. 19, 1861. Slnco my last there hu been no arrival from tne inte rior of the confederation ; congequontly I havo nothing fur ther to communicate from tho seat of war. Nor is thnre any thing of imprest transpiring bore, fli f sqept the politi cal intrlguog going on to get the i-'tato of Manama out of th? confa leration ; f?r you must know that we havo secos plonlsts licro as well as you have In the Southern portion of the United States. An-l.anlstho case in the secoded States of (ho American Union, the Governor of this Stale is at the head of the movement. Tlio preliminary steps looking to this object have just been accomplished. I al lude to the treaty made between the Governor and Mos quera's agent at Aayinwall some weeks since, the lead ing features of which liave already been no ticed in tho Hirald. The measure, as predicted in my last, has just passed the Legislature, ana will, it is tho ught, receive the oliltsial sanction of the government to-day. It now appears that Murlllo , Mogquero'g agent, had no power to make suck s treaty with tho Governor; yet, etran/o to - > , he and tho legislature aro stupid enough ts consummate a measure that is not worth the paper it i* written on. M'wqt'.era Is the only one who gains by the adoption of the treaty, as it is a virtual acknowledgment of hi* government, whilst the othor provisions of the docu ment ? come ting to the State of Panama tho right of neutrality, fee. , in time of war ? amount to nothing, as tho Exec itivc lias not power to tnake any such concessions. Tho whole thing Is a mere trick of Mosqtiera's partisans to inveigle .'lit! State into acknowledging his government; but it will not succeed. The legitimate government, which is trli.mphant in Cauca, Antio<(uia and nearly every other Suite in the confederation will very so.n drive M'fiuora from Bogota, when It will ti.rn its iittent.oii to Panama, and correct the evils that the State has s thoughtlessly, through her ambitious iiolltl Clans, commit ed.

In Chile the political situation of the country since the 5c ii guration of General Perez, tho new President of tUc republic, is highly satisfactory.

INTERESTING FROM VENEZUELA. Official Declaration of the Dictatorship of General Paef. [Translated from K1 Independienteof Caraccas,of Sept. IX for tho Kiw York Hikalp.] The following is tho explanatory letter of General Paaz, with Mb official decrees, on assuming tho supreme government of Venezuela, to which ho was called by the votes of the p*ople : ? Jom Awto.iio I'ab, Commandor-ln-Chlcf of the armies and supremo Governor of the republic, &c. Vkobusi-ans ? A sacrlflco, greater than any that I have made in my life, is demanded of mo under these solemn circumstances, and I am about to fulfil it In proof of my reaped for public opinion and my love for my country. The motives aurt tho views with which I came to the cap! ' t Impelled by tho votes of the people, are w 11 known to you. Heaven knows that I had no other mo tlvo than to prevent disastrous conflicts among brotl ou, and to restore pc-ico to those mind8 that were justly alarmed by the confusion that reigned in tho capita! We expected that the resignation oft he Vice President of the repqblln would have removed these difficulties, and that the r>f?renentati(.na of Valencia and oilier cities would th s be carrii d out without violence. Hut everything has been changed In an unexpected man ner. The government of Caraccas prepared Itself to ro p?l by force the conciliatory menanre proposed to It, and the defenders of socicty in tins province, Identified with tho national set timgnt, indignantly rejected tho idea of crossing swortU with their brethren, and of sustaining projects that would have consummated tho ruin of tho ropublio. Such was the Idea which decided them to remove the ctuso which could provoke ihise horn- s, overthrowing the existing government and proclaiming tho reconstitu lion of the country, alter Dr. (iiual had refused to resign to make room for the isslgnado (I>r. Angel Quintero). Tho people of Caraccas, to whom full liberty was given to deliberato, in the exercise of tlieir sovereign right, spontaneously ratified this vote, and nominated mo civil und military chiof of the republic, with supreme power to pacify and reconstitute it under thu popular republican form of governmonl. In Victoria 1 was met by the commission sent to pro aont me tba vote of the canital and of other towns of this pro\ inco, and to request my acceptance. I trembled on considering the Impor lance. of the 1m mcce charge which wua sought to be thrown on my w?ry shrnildors. 1 called to mind my past life, and I was alarmed at lh? idea of again charging myself with t'.i -lateof my country, so disturbed by the w- Ight of calamities which no man could valngloriously boast of bolng able to remedy In a short t'me. There was the naiinng work of ducrd to make tho purest Intentions fruitless. I double,! mvselt, and did not hesitate In <siorgetically refining the Immense honor which was offered me by a large portion of my fellow countrymen, and In requesting that, In lovo for myself, they should desist from their proposition and call upon the ' -Deslgna do" to strengthen the party of legality. I put my Influence to the proof, and refused to enter the capital In which th" forces of my command had been fraternally rcceivsd. thus giving rejose to the people that they might oalmly resolve the complicated problem In which circum stances had placed us. Valnho|iel Public opinion hi regard to this question, In stead of growing weak, became more uniform. Represan tatives of every body in society came out to meet me and to convince me of the impossibility of re-establishing a sys tem nt legality which had cost so many sacrifices without any result, and which was an impediment to the pacifica tion of the country, and the Inauguration of a now era of concord and of future lawful rule. Commerce and every social interest, notwithstanding the admirable state of tranquillity which the capital enjoyed umier tlie authori ty s named by tho peoplo, bccatne justly alarmed at the continuance of the republic without a recognized head, and with just fours that, if this state of uncertainty was prnlongod, and the action of the general authority sus pended, anarchy would not lag very long in manifesting Itself, and on its heels would come the social dissolution of the oouitry. Kearmg other complications, I entered tho capi tal, in order to tranqnllico by my presence the slams of many citizens. I yet refused to assume tho si. promo command , hoping for a reaction, evon at the ru>k of compromising the confldsea reposed iu me. But I was n it able any longer to resist the desires of moro thim ten vlioi sand citiw ns, who Imperiously forced me to this sacr line; nor the fears with which I was inspired by the dangers into which the rvpub.ic was drilling. My duty Ig to present them at eve*" ci*t. ltd is n't lie I mg to m ? to flnrt, r, or do the circumstance!5 In which I am placed leave any alieruattvo tor my conduct.

The regular winter course of lectures at the Col lege of Pharmacy was commenced last evening at their rooms in tho University building, corner of Unlvorsity anil Waverley placos. Quito a numerous audienco was In nttendanee, and considerable interest was manifested. The study of the comi>oiindln(r of medicines, which em braces such a vast field of reading In botany, chemistry and materia mntira, has been very much neglected in thin country, and it is only within tho test few years that a proper d"grce of importance seems to have been at tached to the subject. Tho College of Pharmacy Is doing a good deal to promote the study of therapeutics in all its branches, and qulto a numerous class now attend tho regular courses every year. Obituary.

The Chief Justico of Qiioboc, ("ana la, was In Court, and was Introduced to Judge Nelson by Mr. D. Lord, previ ous to tho opening of the ease. The court wa* densely crowded, and the greatest aaxl ety was m tnifoated on tho part of tho spectators to wit n.PS the pi ocuedings in this first cause n(.;an:st a crew of a privateer. 'liio prisoners, fourteen In number, were desirod to stand up iuid look n|?in each Juror as ho wis called. In answer to Mr. t.uroqi'e, Mr. Wm. Powell, who was Interrogated as to bis ludlffercrce between tho govern nient and the aceOsod , as a Juror , s lid that lie had read of the case of the Savannah in tho newspapers, but he paid very little attention to wliat the pa^eis - aid of latn. Q. Have you furniod or ezprossod tho opinion that the acts charged, if proved, constitute the ollenoa of piracy 1 Mr. Powe'l ? I have not exprcsaed tho opinion and I can scarcely say that 1 have formed an opinion, because I do not know sufficient of the case. ^ The Juror was then sworn. Mr. Thos. Dugan said that his conscientious scruples against capital punishment were such that be would fear to trust himself. The Court, to Mr. Dugan ? Wo deslro that you should fully comprehend the question, which Is tl,ls: ? If the proof, in a capital case, was snfilciont on the part of the government, would you bo able to find a verdict in ac cordance with the evldcncef Mr. Dugan replied that ho feared his sympathy would get ibe better of his judgment.

Capt." tinker, who Is a tall, gentlemanly lin king man, with a wo!l cultivated beard and wearing spectacles, was seated by bis counsel, and ruse up as each juror was ?worn. Mr. Ira L- Cady . whoso mind wo* not entirely free from feeling upon tlie gen ral question at ipstio , wax challenged peremptorily. Mr. Samuel Mudget was aliso challenged poremptorlly by the prisoner's counsel. United States Histrlct Attorney, Mr. E. Dolafield Smith, then procooded to open- tho case for the prosecution. He cited tho various acts of Congress defining and punch ing the crin.cs of piracy and robbery on tho high seas, and said , 1 have been thus particular In referring to tho laws under which this indictment is framed in order that you may porcoive precisely what tho inquiry is which we hare now to make. It is whether tho statutory law of tho United States has or has not been violated? You hava all, undoubtedly , board moro or loss of tho crimo of pira cy as generally and popularly understood. A pirate is deeemod by tho law of tho nations, and has always been deemed , as the enemy of the human race, as a man who depredates generally and indiscriminately on tho com merce of all nations. Whether or not the crimo alleged here m piracy under tho law of nations is a question which probably will not be material to tho inquiry. The consti tution oi the United States undoubtedly authorised Congress to deflno and punish piracy. It might, possibly, be a question whether, in regard to duprodations committed by foreigners in foreign vessels against the commorco of tho United States, Congress could declare that to bo piracy which is not piracy under the law cf nations, but it is not material in this case. The constitution has authorized Gmgress to pass laws defining and punishing depredations on our national commerce, committed by our own citizens. Congress has done so in tho statutes to which I havo refflrrod. If the words " plrato and felon" wore stricken out of tho statute, and If the statute simply read that any person who would commit robbery on the high seas should suffer death, tho law would be complete and could bo administered with out any reference to what constitutes piracy by tho law of nations. Having thug referred to tho statutory law under which this indictment was found, I will statoas succinctly as possible, with duo regard to fullness, falrnoss apd completeness, tho facts In this case. In tho middle or latter part of May, 1861, a number Of persons In the city of Charleston ,9. 0., conceived the do sign of purchasing or employing a vessel to cruise on the Atlantic for the purpose of depredating on the commcrce of the United States. They procoodcd to tho fuUUment of that design by procuring persons willing to act as captain, officers and crow of this piratical vessel. This there wag at first consldorablo difficulty in doing, and it was not until a groat many men were thrown out of em ployment in Charleston, by tho acts of South Carolina and of what is called tho Confederate government, and by the action of the United States government in blockading iho port of Charleston and other Southern ports, that a crow could be found toman this vessel. There were DO shipping articles or agreement as to wages; but it was understood that all woro to sharo in the plunder or proceed* arising from the capture of vessels on tho high seas. Wo shall show to you that tho prisoners at the bar were finally forced to embark on this enterprise; that Captain Bilker was one of the first to engage in it; Unit hu wed oxor tions to obtain a crew, and succeeded, after consider, Mo difficulty, in doing so. On Saturday, 1st of Juno, 1861, the crew were embarked on a small pilot boat and pro ceeded down to opjiosito Port Sumter, where they woro transferred, in small boats, to the schooner Savannah. Wo shall show by the declaration;; of the parties who stand charged hereto-day, and also by the ports of equipment of tho vessels, the iniont and purpose of this voyngo. The Savannah. ? schooner of fifty three or fifty -four tons, was armed with councn and" smell arms, on Sunday ufternoon, tho 2d Juno, she sailed from opposite Fort Sumptor, her crow numbering about twenty met), all of whom aro here with the exception of six, who were detached to form a prizo crew of tho brig J')scph. On tho morning of Mon day, 3d of June, a sail was descried; It wis remarked an.oug the crew that the vessel, from her ap|>oar;iiiCe, was undoubtedly a Yankee vessel, as they termed It ? a Teasel owned in one of the Northern States of tho Union. She proveD to be the brig Joseph, laden with sugar, and bound from ('ardour s, in Cuba, to Philadelphia. Chafe was given, an.1 when the Savannah came within hailing distance, Captain linker hailed her, and orderod the captain of the Joseph to come on board. Captain My or*, of the Joseph, seeing that the Savannah was armod, and that her men were ready for actlonr fearing Tor tho safety of those on board his vessel, went on board the Savannah. A prize crew was taken from the Savaniall and paced on hoard tlio Joseph ? tho captain of the privateer declaring that he was sailing under tho flag of the Confederate "government, as he called it. and that ho desired to depre date on the commerce of the United States. The Savan nah proceeded on her course, and, in a few hours after wards, she descried tho United States hrlg-of-war Perry, and supposing her to be a mcrchunt ve.-si 1 slio gave chase, fired a gun, and finally fired several guns. On disco verins, however, that the brig was a United States vessel-of-war sho attempted risistance, Ctptolri Raker paying to his men, "Now, hoys, prepare for action. " When coming within speaking distance, the commander of tbo l'erry asked Captain l'aker whether ho surrendered, snd finally ho said ho did. Tho Savannah wes then taken in charge by a prize crew from on board the l'erry and brought to New York, aud the Minnesota, with the prison ers cn board, proceeded ? on her way to New York ? to Hampton Roads, where, after two days, she transferred tho prisoners to the Harriot lane, winch brought them to New York. Her - they were taken in charge by the United States Mershal. A warrant was issued by the United Pint 's Ci 't.ri' -si mer, end under it the Marshal too!: fbrrrm! !?3i sFion Of rul hold the prisoners.
