Soon thereafter she was headed seaward, with a full head of steam on, with the expectation that she Would founder. The current set her ashore near Sierra Moreno, where she was discvercd hy a Spanish war vessel; she had five hundred negroes and a crew. The remainder of the negroes had been sold. The crew were sent to Key West. Col. Duryea, Commander of the Sev enth Regiment, was presented on the 11th inat., in New York, with a service of silver, valued at $">,000.

I'TTKRINU OK FoitiiKi) I'. S. PAYMAS TKK'S PUAFTS. —A man named Henry Wilson was arrested by the I . S. Mar shal Wednesday, for littering certain forced Pay master's'certificates, or drafts. Most of the papers have it that arrested for forging l". S. Treasury notes, which was far from being the case. It was, and is still supposed, that the chief, and perhaps only guilty par ty, was one William Smith, and it was desired that nothing should be said of the matter, so that a lull opportunity might be given the officers to make his arrest—but either purposely, or careless ly, tin 1 matter was given publicity by outsiders, and thus the matter has been made prematurely public, while Smith is stili at large. II appears that (Hi Saturday last (he man Wilson appeared :it tin* Police of fice and complained that William Smith Serjeant in a company ot tin 1 I'nitcd States troops stationed on the San •hian Island in Territoiv. was about leaving on tlie steamer and owed him ahotit !&?nn. Officers Kliis and dolinson went with him to the steamer, when Wilson, seeing Smith oit the steamei 1 . ran tip to him, collared him and drained him oiK He and Smith then had some conversation on the wharl, when Smith trave over to him certain three papers purporting to he paymas ter's certificates or drafts, drawn - by ('apt. Picket! of San .Inan, and in favor of Corporal .1. Kelly tor $274,71; one in favor of Private P. McCormie for OA; and the third in favor of Private 1). Williams for s:>4~>.4">. (hi the receipt of them Wilson expressed himself sat isfied and paid the officers .$<»U for their tronlile. Smith was allowed to j;o his way, hnt in tlie meanwhile the steamer had departed, so that he is prohahlyin State, perhaps m this city. These ahovementioiicd certificates, which are forced, have endorsements on tln-m to Wilson, and he drew the mon ey tut them front Paymaster Pinfold —sl,l OA lin all. There scents to he no donht whatever, hnt that Smith knew till ahout the forgeries, possibly forced the papers himself: and the question now is whether Wilson was cognizant of the forgeries, lie was I charged with having collected the mon ey on the papers as an accomplice of Smith. The case was examined before T r . S. Commissioner J. H. Williams yester day; ami there appearing sulficient tes timony to send the accused toth(> »raud jury, he wart hound over by the Com missioner to the I'. S. Circuit Court and his hail fixed tit sl,ooo. Gens. Scott and Harney. Gen. Harney is still at Washington. Separate and distinct charges and speci fications, of the most serious nature, have been preterred against liiin by ('apt. .Jordan, Quartermaster's Depart ment; Lieut. Welckcr, Ordinance De partment: Lieut. Hodges, Fourth In fantry, Lieut. De Ilart, Third Artil lery—the burden of'which is "conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentle man," and "tyranical use and abuse of authority." But what of his course is obnoxious to the accusation of "author ity," is, doubtless, founded on a serious charge by (Jen. Scott. Jt seems that the British Minister demanded the re moval of (ion. Harney from his com mand in Washington Territory, for the alleged reason that he had violated the arrangments entered into hy (Jen. Scott and Gov. Douglas, concerning the Is land San Juan, thereby restoring ('apt. I'ickett to command, and by again put ting in operation the United States' Territorial laws. General Scott impeaches Gen. Har ney by stating in substance, that, hav ing had no confidence in his disposition to-carry out said arrangements with li dclity and courtesy, lie suggested to Gen. Harney, before leaving the Pacific coast, the advisability of his taking some other command, adding that the British Government would, doubtless, irk bis removal from the one he then held.

Tlic single end of this book is the presentation, in n compact and convenient form, of the more Im portant fuels, votes, resolves, letter*, speeches, re ports. and other documents, which elucidate the political contest now agitating this country. It lias been our aim to let every candidate and* other important personage speak for himself; Make his own platform, and vindicate (if he mar) Mb own consistency and the soundness or his views on the great question* which underlie our current poli ties. Of course, such a work can have lint n compara tive merit. Make it ever so large, and still many things must lie omitted that the compiler would" wish to insert; and every critic will plausibly ask, "Why insert this and omit that? Why give so much of A and so little of 11?" Besides, it ii not always possible to remember, or, if remembered, to find, all that would be valuable In a work like this. We can only say that we have done our best: let him do better who can. Inaccuracy of citation is one of the chief rices of our political discussions. You can hardly listen to a set speech, even from a well-informed and ti'utlilul canvasser, which is not marred by sonic* misapprehension or unconscious misstatement of the position and views of this or that prominent statesman. Documents, heedlessly rend and long since lost or mislaid, arc quoted from the flucncv and confidence, as though with indubitable accu racy, w hen the citations so made do gross injustice to their author, and tend to mislead the hearer. We believe the documents collected in this work are so printed that their general accuracy may be safely relied on. Hy canvassers of all parties, we trust our TexU Hook will be found convenient, not to say indis pensable. Hiit those who only listen, and read, and reflect, will also find it a manifest help to a clmir understanding of the issues and contentions of the day. They will lie interested in comparing the actual positions taken by Mr. Lincoln, or Mr. I'oughts, or (ien. Cass, or Mr. Everett, as faithful' ly set forth in this work, with those confidently at tributed to that statesman in the fluent harangue of sonic political opponent, who is intent on blazon ing incousistencyjorproving his sincerity. To veri fy and correct the citations of n frothy declaimcr is sometimes the easiest tmd most convincing refutu tion of his speech. If a trace of pnrtison bins is betrayed in the thread of narrative which partially unites the suc cessive reports, bills, votes, etc., presented in this work, the error is unintentional and regretted. Our purpose was to compile a record acceptabte aml convenient to men of all parties, and which might be consulted and trusted by all. Whatever is original herein is regarded as of no use or merit, save as a necessary elucidation of the residue. Without apology, therefore, or further explanation,, the Text-Book is commended to the fuvor of the American public. l'rice $1 per copy, postpaid. The trade and clubs supplied at §OO per hundred.

'•This work will l»n looked upon .is a valuable compendium of tlio history and positiou of parties, [•latt'ornis, ami opinion* of the leading statesmen of the present times in the Uuited .States. While compiled doubtless with n view to forwarding the iutcrests ofjtlie Republican party during the ent campaign for the approaching Presidential election, its value is not confined to that party alone liut it will be deemed indispensable to men of all parties, for its lending feature is the impartiality with which the opinions of ineti and parties of cverv political shade are set forth, especially on the un linppy question of Slavery generally/and Slavery in the Territories in particular. As publicity i* the breath of the nostrils to even- man who aspires to, and takes part in public life and as few such men would desire to see their opinion) without a record, even though their opinions at one time might differ from those of another—for change of opinion is one of the most legitimate of privileges, and one the most frequently practiced in all coun tries—this work can hardly be unwelcome to nuv of the eminent statesmen of our country, whose record it sets forth."—[New York Transcript. " The character mid contents of this timely vol-* iime arc very well indicated in the title /mgr. Par the manner, too, in which the work has been done, no other assurance of Its excellence can be needed after the aniiouaccmeut of Horace (ircely a* one «f its compilers, ft is not intended as a partisan text-book. The compiler* state in their advertise ment : "If a trace of partisan bias is betrayed in the thread of narrative which partially unite* the suc cessive reports, bills, votes, etc., presented in thitf work, the error is unintentional and regretted. Our purpose was to compile a record acceptable and convenient to men of nil parties, and .which might be consulted und trusted by all.'' " Ft is a great mass of matter in, and we mar say, of course, jndietously selected, so small a commits. We miss the Ihed Scott decision. We think that miglit have had a place here with great propriety. It probably was deemed lupererog*. Tory, as too familiarly known, or too easily obtain able elsewhere. The Text Book has not a present utility and valne merely. After this canvass ahd the result of it the will he found to have a permanent value as may be gathered from the title especially to young men and Mtumligrtf citizens; and the l>rod Scott decision wtiuldhave been a material addition to that permanent ralne. The Text Hook will be a convenient lamp of the past to light our steps in the present and fiituic.
