Ou Sunday, the 16ib,the American Consol received a telegram from bis colleague In Home, to the effect thatthesyi-di#- crU Walters was none other than Surratt,and order ing bis immediate arrest, immediately application was made to the police of Naples, acd every possi ble CacLity afforded, but it waa found they were tco late, and that the criminal had storied the night before by the Liverpool screw Tripoli for Malta and Alexandria. The telegraph was then put lu communication with Malta, and duccdous were given to the Consul-General of the United States in that island to arrest Walters immedi ately on bis arrival. A letter received at the American Consulate only last evening states that tbe Tripoli tonened at Malta early on Monday morning, the lOlh; that the Consul immediately applied for powers to arrest Surratt; that no an swer was reinnjed till lost before the boor of the departure of the Tripoli for Alexandria; and that tbe answer was in the negative, on the ground of there being no authority for doing uo. Telegrams have, therefore, be;n sent from the United States represenk'Uvcs iu» Rome, Naples, and Malm to the Consul iu Alexandria, and as vessels from Livetpool undergo a quarantine In that city, it Is fully expected that Surratt will there he captur ed. On what grounds tbe British authorities In Malta declined toact Is not known, and it would Le premature, therefore, to express any opinion on the subject; but tbe mere fact of their havin'* dccilncd bas crca'ed the worst possible feeling in the mines of American agents. The Consul at Malta expresses the opinion that It was by “ a mere legal quibble’* tbe bead and front ot the conspiracy was permitted to escape; and here 1 have heard tbe refusal ot tbe British authorities to act contrasted with the readiness which was shown InAmericatogtve up Muller. It must, however, be dear to every dispassionate person that there Is not tbe slightest parallel between the two cases. In that o* Muller tbe American authorities had been applied to some days before his arrival, and all the forms observed which the Treaty of Extradition required; in tbe present case a telegram only conveyed the information and demand. 1 have reason to believe that a despatch has hem already sent off to Mr. Seward couched in the strongest terms, and’as Americana arc disposed to regard almoet every act, word and thought of England as being hostile to them some difficulty may be expected. From the sympathy and iudfgualion which were expressed In England at the time of tbe aa-assination of Mr. Lincoln, and which were os deeply felt and expressed by every Euclhfaman on tbe Coutincnt with whom 1 came In contact, tbe Americans ought to feel that there can be no disposition on our part to screen from Justice any one who was implicated la that heinous crime. Naples, November 89.—Since writing my last letter 1 have received the following details of the adventures of Surratt since his arrival in Italy. About ten months ago he entered the Pontifical service, and was drafted Into the Flllb company of Zouaves. Without the knowledge of either of them, a young man who bad been educated, together with Surratt, In the College of Maryland, also entered tbe i ame service, and was enrolled in the Fourth company of tbe Zouaves. Having been quartered hi different places they bad never met, but about six mcnihVago both companies were sent to the same locality to execute some manoeuvre against the brigands. On its completion they met, and his companion addressed Surratt by name. Drawing him aside, tbe latter Informed him be was now known only a* John Watson. A day or two afterwards the companion, professing to be disgusted at serring with assassins, sought out General King, American Minister at Borne, and told him the whole afialr. On being assured that there was no mistake as to tue identity of Surratt, the General desired the Informer to remain quiet, said he should ssk his Government for instruc tions, and held out promise of a reward. Tne American Government, in reply, deshed their Minis.'cr to secure Surratt, and General Kingcallcd on Cardinal Autoaelil and begged to know rbether, in the event of bis Identifying Surratt and nuhiugto arrest him, his Eminence would penult It. The Cardinal replied that, though no treaty of extradition existed between the two countries, they were In a position (o do u they Ilkid, and cooad have no desire to ehelter assas sins: bilUbomßjt consult LU Holiness. Tnf*e days later his Errlaence sent for General King, and showed him fhe orcers for the md ou uia own reapers ■lull rr »n«rf«ni <oeeom : maodtcg.oAecT wt vellelrl direc'riii* to secure Surratt, who was/atrestrd at Vallrcovsa. Tcongh guarded by fivw Zouaves he managed to throw nlmself into „ deep ravine, thus imhmor upon himself aqy ire injuries, the marks of which he boie on >ils arrival in Naples, and. as Vallecorra Is only two or three miles from the • frontier, easily crossed it. Here be was arrested by the Custom House authorities as having no ptSeport and oemgtn the Pontifical uni form, but was Bboitly rchased. On learning these facts. General King,it is said.felt aggrieved! and stated that be bad not requested bis Eminence to arrest him, bat had only asked lor powers to dosofn the event of the demand bdnomade. He Immediately communicated with Mr. Marsh, the American Minister at Florence, bat Mr. Marsh was feting It at Venice with the King, and on Mr. Marshs retnru, and calling on the Minister lor Foreign Atlairs, be found that Uls Excellency was doing tbe same. This much was lost, bat the Secretary promised ivciy assistance, adding that though hnrratt were arrested be felt assured his Government wonld not giro him np except on the condition of hia life being spired. This much was decided on Thursday, Ihe ISUilnsL, but as Mr. bwan, the American Consul, did not re alve any desnatch urging him to act nntil jhe 18th, it was toj hie, as the bird had flown. To there details l may add that General Kirg cave the informer $250 lu gold, and held out tue promised reward ol *IO.OOO more on the arrest being effected. If the American Gov etrtrentls really desirous of securing its man. I am disposed to believe that It Is with a view to pro cure evidence of the complicity of Mr. Jefferson Davis in the conspiracy against President Lincoln, and evidence or that or any other crime might, perhaps, be easily famished by a man who aban doned his own mother and left her to be boaged * at the same time It would almost appear, from the bqanng ol some of the diplomatic agents, that the Government would have been glad bad,the subject not been revived. Certain It Is that J have heard Americana express a regret that, as poor Lincoln's death had been amply avenged. Surratt bad not been left alone, to bear about with him bis own punishment. The Workingmen's Demonstration In London. (From the Pall Mall Gazette, December 4.] The Reform demonstration has passed from tbc stage of anticipation to that of history, audits measure has been very carefully taken by trained observers. The result appears to be thatabont 23,000 thoroughly respectable and well conducted men cared enough about the question of Reform, and bad sufficient sympathy with those who ar ranged the procession, to give np a day's work lor the purpose of marening about four miles through muddy streets on a rather mUavorablo wfntePs day. This is the plain prose of the whole transaction, but It would bo wrong to yield to the temptation which the difference between the promises and the performances of the Reformers certainly holds oat to underrate the value of the meeting, and to treat it as a failure. Tall Ulk is the characteristic Infirmity ol half educated minds, and the managers of such a meeting take as naturally to boasts about 200,0 u0* men as the excited speakers at an open air meet ing take to sweeping denunciations of all sorts of things and persons whom they really have no rea son whatever for denouncing. To indace 2-3,U00 thoroughly respectable, perfectly sober, and well conducted men to come forward and testify qni eUy and respectfully, but still decidedly, to their political views is no smalt thing. Fewpeople coma have looked at yesterday's procession without feeling that so rar as outward appearances and demeanor went, the men who composed it were as will qualified to ezpreea an opinion upon political subjects as members of most other classes of society, and no one wonld fill to observe that they were as different a class of men from the roughs and black guards who at one point of the procession tried to interfere with them for their own characteristic objects as the members of different species. There were, in a word, an excellent specimen of the respectable mechanics and laborers who form the largett pore of the imputation, and it would be a mistake to anppoao that the members of ihe same class who did not Join In the procession «ere on that account incufierent to Its objects. London and the neighborhood, no donbt, contain many thousand reformers among the mechanics and laborers, wbo saw no connection between walking m a procession and getting an extension of the snQVagc. The evert. In short, justifies, tbongb it does not deepen, the Impression which ha c been steadily gaining ground in all dlrec lons since the close ol the session, that the unenfran chised classes really are in earnest about Reform, and mean to nee all peaceable means to get IL Reported Resignation of Mr, Disraeli, (Loudon Correspondence of the Scotsman.] A rumor rs current at the dubs, and credited in well-informed political circles, that differences in the Cabitet on the question of a new Befurxn bill have come to a beau, and that Ur. Disraeli’s resig nation Is at the present moment In the Hands of I.ord Derby. The absence of the Chancellor of the Exchequer from the Cabinet Conacilon Thurs day was certain (o excite remark. A colorable pretext had to be found; audtwoorthiee days tro. with full knowledge that a meeting of the Cabinet was to be held ou Thursday. Ur. Disraeli left town on a visit to the Duke ot Wellington at Suathfieldsaye. The moai generally accepted, and at the same time most probable version of Ur. Disraeli's resignation is, that a considerable minority of the Cabinet objected. In the first in stance, to the Introduction of a Ecform M'l at all nest sear lon, and that two or three Cabinet Conn dls were held before the Chancellor of the Ex chequer was able to carry his point, and Induce bis colleagues to to bring In a bill as soon as Parliament meets** The principles ol the bin having come to bcdiscuased.the leaderuf the Gov emmei tin the Housed Commons is said to have astonished and alaimed bis colleagues, by the boldness and extent of his views. He protested against bringing In a weak and unsntlsfictory rep etition ol ibe Derby bill of 1859, and wished to outflank the whole Opposition by proposing a wider, and. In seme resi»ects, a more democratic measnre (ban that proposed by Ur. Gladstone last year. It Is said that Ur. Disraeli is in favor of a scheme of household sofflare in towns. He would give up borongbs to democracy, promising bis party, by the way, more successes under the new suffrage than they dream of. In (be hope of consoling landlord Influence In coun ties, be uonld eliminate small towns from coun ties and give a £2O county qualification. All the accounts agree that the Chancellor of the Ex chequer has been stoutly opposed throughout by the nigh Tory section m the Cabinet. Humors have been current that General Peel first opposed the Introduction of a Bclorm bill at all, and then tendered bis resignation, which be has consented, on Lord Derby's personal appeal, not to press for the moment. It Is added that General Peel has been persistently supported by Lord Cranbome, between whom and Ur. Disraeli there has never been a feeling more cordial than that of hollow civility. Lord Cranbome doubtless sees In Mr. viTrffH \ reform another Instance of SySSASSi Peel and Lord Cranbome; while Lord bum. CHICAGO. MONDAY, DECEMBER 1866. ley. Sir J, PaUngton. aud Blr S. Nortncote are said to range themselves on the side of tbc Chan cellor of the Exchequer. The Premier’s political sympathies arc nnaoubtraly with the Tory sec tion of his Cabinet. As chief of the party, how ever, it has been his duty to consider the party consequences of a disruption among.its leaders as well as the particular measuresbefore the Cabi net fie bas, therefore, hesitated to range himself against Mr. Disraeli, and ho bas been in all pro bability supported by what may be termed bis peisonal followers lc tbe Upper Bouse—tbe Lord Chancellor, the Earl of Malmesbury, and the Earl of Carnarvon. The - rumor at tbe Carltm Club Is that If Mr. Disraeli should resign. General Peel will load the Conservatives in the House of Commons, with Lord Cranbome second in command. Lord Stan ley, it is hoped, may be Induced by a feeling of loyally to the head of bb house, to remain in the Government In this event the present Secretary of State for India will succeed Mr. Disraeli as Minister of Finance. Many of tbn out-and-out Tories would rather see the party led by General Peel with tbo flag of “No surrender,’* than wit ness another of Mr. Disraeli’s flank movements. I cntcitaln very imio doubt that the Chancollorof the Exchequer's scheme was discussed at tbe Cabi net during nls absence on ifaunday. He Is, with out question, right In reiuslng to take charge of a timid,vacillating, half-hearted measure, which can satisfy no one, and which will be scouted by the House ot Commons. Tbc general Impression is Umt he is necessary for the party, and bas now attained a position of influence and authority which w ill enable him to make hla own term*, and become the true leader of the Conservative party. Mr. Disraeli is said to be tired of the policy of ne gation and obstruction. Should Lora Derby and uiai Cabinet agree to adopt Mr. Diuraeli’K Helorm bill, you may expect to hear of the resignation of General Peel, Lord Cracborne, ami one or two olhirmcmbet s of the Illiberal section of the admin istration. TERRIBLE TORNADO IN TEXAS, Loss of Life—Destruction of Property— masonic Institute utterly Destroyed— Fonr of me Students Killed. (From the Henderson (Texas) Times, Decembers.] Ou Wednesday, the sth, a tornado of great violence passed over this place in a north easterly direction committing terrible havoc in its course. It was 150 to 200 yards In width. From Information received, It must have formed about four miles southwest of town. About 12 o’clock m., clouds from southeast and northwest, of an unusually threatening character, were observed ap proaching each other. They met at half Sast twelve. The violence was great at Dr. lair’s plantation, one and a halt miles southwest of town; all the buildings were torn down and scattered, except tbe main dwelling, it being rather In the edge of tbe current, was not seriously damaged. Tim bers and everything iu its course were swept away. Several buildings lu the suburbs of town were blown down. Passing over the graveyard, the enclosures of the graves, tombs, &c., were much dam aged. The Hicks’ shop, a two-story build ing on the street leading out toward Belle* vieWjWas utterly destroyed. The residence of J.YV. Harris was considerably damaged. The nest building In its course was the Ma sonic Institute, which was near the centre of the current. This was a largo two-story brick building. In a moment alter the tor nado struck it It was u mass of ruins. The lower story was occupied as the male depart ment of the Institute, and the upper us a lodge and chapter room. A number of Ma sons who bud been attending the lectures of Companion Van Vleck, Ibe Grand Lecturer of the Grand Chapter of the Slate of Texas, had left the lodge room only about twenty minutes before. The Institution had been at intermission about thirty minutes, and many of the students, fortunately, had not returned from their dinners. Twenty-three were in and arotmd the building when it fell, ail of whom, with one exception, were more or less injured. The lifeless bodies of four were taken from the rnlns—John Crow, Robert Stith, Nelson Parr and Arthur Stcd man. The scene around the ruins, after the full of the building, wc have neither the lan guage nor heart to describe. The report that immediately went out was that ail the boys were killed —bow it happened other wise it is hard to understand. Nearly every family in town either had a son there or one on his way from dinner. The distress may possibly be imagined, but no words can por tray It. In the course of an hour all were removed from the ruins except Arthur Sted man ; bis body was not found until the next morning, though the labors of the many collected were continued nnrcmittedly day and night. In this connection we cannot forbear to mention the noble conduct of the freedmen of this community. Of course, in such a case .every, one is expected to do Lis duty, and compliments are out of place, bat the freedmen did ,more than was to be ex- 1 pectcd, and positively refused auy remunera tion, though they worked night and day, much of the time In. the rain, till the last body was found; About fifty yards to the west of the Insti tute, the red (fence occupied by Mr. Myer, the stage-driver on the Marshall road, was utterly destroyed. /Fbefwife of Mr. Mycr, her infant child, and a Miss'Morgan were in the bouse. Miss Morgan and aha child wore killed; Mrs. Myor escaped unbbrt. . • Among .the intqtcstiog phenomena-ecu-' reeled with tba-Aornado was u red fiery 1 streak, which appeared to be the centre <& the current, and surrounded by dark clouds of smoke. The tornado went in a continued whirl, and was denominated a “screw storm.” Advertising Ag*i« 126 Denrbora-st., receive advertisements tor all the leading papcti throughout the (Jolted Stales and Canadas. jtfrtDßpapeciS. r PKLNTBK& AND PUBLISHERS.
