The Union discusses tLe New York Tribunt is connection with Kansas affairs The Intelligent rr thus discoureeth on the composition of the Senate of the United States : " The death of Mr. Clayton haa very natu rally directed attention to the members of the United State* Senate, and to the point of se niority. Mr. Crittenden, of Kentucky, is now the ''Father" of that diptinj;ui?hed body, baring entered it on the 4th of Maroh, 1817 It will be seen, however, on reference to the roeord, that this sow veteran Senator did not exhibit any degree of fondness fur the public eooaeils. high ns the position of a Senator has ever been considered lie resigned his first term in less than three years, and his succes ?or. the Hon. Richard M Johnson, was ap pointed on the 10th December, 181}). ??Mr Crittenden was again in the Senate, his service dating from 3d March, 18?>. He again resigned before the end of his term, and his tueeeeeor, the Hon. James T. Morehead, en ured the Senate on the 20th February, 1341 Mr Crittenden then succeeded Mr. Clay, who had resigned on the 25ih February, 1842, and continued until the 3d of March, 1849. He waa elected Governor of Kentucky, but re linquished that trust in July, 1850, to enter Mr. Fillmore's Cabinet as Attorney General Mr. Crittenden s present term commenced with the 3d of March, 1855, making Lis whole service about eighteen years. ?4 The Hon. James A. F^ar-e, of Maryland, is next in the order of seniority, his service dating from the 3d March, 1843. Hu id now in his third teriu The ll^n Lewis Ca?s com menced with 4th March. 1845, and resigned in 1843 when nominated for the Presidency. He is in his second term, which will be closed oc the 3d of March, 1857 " None of the other Senators now in service date further back tn*n 3d March, 1845 Tie seniors stand thus: Mr. Bright, of Indiana, 4th March, 1845; Mr Yulee. of Florida, July 21, 1845; Messrs. liusk *nd Houston, of Texas, February 21,1*40; Mr Butler, of South Caro lina, December 21, 1M6; Mr. Mason, of Vir ginia, January 25. 1847, Mr. Hunter, 4t2r of March, 1847; Mr Hale of New Hampshire. 4th March. 1847 Mr. Bell, o: Tennessee. 4th VarcD, 1847; Mr. Douglas, of Illinois. 4th of Mareh, 1847; Mr. Fitxpatrick, of Alabama.

This exhibits more than tb^urual number nf comparatively new Senator-, out moat of th?m have bad legislative experience in otner public bodies. ' WASIlhVGTON NEIVS AND GOSSIP Hiearagua.?In yesterday's Stur we took oecasion to refer briefly to the expose of Walk er's policy and acts which haa resulted from tha current quarrel of some of his agents and pirtiaans in New York city. We regret that a want of space prevents us from spreading the antira articles, wcrd for word, before the Star's readers. They involve a triumphant justifi cation of the course we have felt it to be our duty to pursue with reference to Walker and his plans since the beginning of his unsuccessful raid into the territory of our nearest neighbor on our southern flank?Mexico. We conceived that we saw in what was originally developed of his scheme! an entire disregard of any other interest wha:>v jr than that of carving out for himself the throne of a despot, and a deter mination to resort to e^ery species of violence, cruelty and fraud, and, inJaed.. to the perpe tration of any crimos appearing for the nonce likely to further his selfish personal end". Under such circumstances, we steadily set our face against bis caus?, and, so far. b*vt seen no reason to regret having dona so. Balow we make a few extracts from the pub. lieations t> whicb we lefer above, whieh, toga gether, present a daguerreotype of his pur poses, his acts, his present position and condi tion in Nicaragua, and of the fortunes of those Americans who have allowed themselves to be aedneed into entering his service. Tnus on the 11th of January las: bo consummated the fol lowing agreement with the noted Cuban Fili buster, Goicouria, without the aid of whose money, we apprehend, he would long since bava exploded: COXTBACT. General William Walker, Commander-in Chief of the Army of Nicaragua, is willing to fbrm the following agreement with Captain F. A. Laite, appointed egent of Sr Domingo de Ooiconria, sole holder and depository of tbe goods and chattels bel^rping to the cause of Cuba, consisting in mouey. a vessel and mu nitiorsof war: Firstly?General William Walker pledges uis word of honor that be will assist and co operate with his vari< us resources, such us men anoi others, in the ';ause of Cuba, and in favor of he." liberty, after having consolidated tbe neaee an J the government of the itepublic of Nicaragua Secondly?General William Walker pro poses and admits tb? understanding 'hat the material and pecuniary resources ot Nicara gua, a* veil a- those which are in tbe posses sion of tie revolutionary par y of Cuba, shall be amalgamated togeiaer. making common cause together, for tbe purpose of overthrow - ing tbe Spanish tyranny la (he iaiand, ai.d of insuring tbe prosperity of Central America, identifying thereby the interests ot both coun lhirdly? General Walker requires a i*Ii expoahioo, manifestation and explanation of the resources belonging to tbe cau^e of Cuba, as likewise a detailed statement and list of the military and marine fcrces, as well as the re maining re?, urces cf the bpanish Government ia the inland of Cuba. Fourthly?Capt F. A Leiae, having taken into consideration the contcm* of the three foregoing articles, agrees to and adepts the contents of tbe said three articles, only as a preamble of a contract to b? made upon a more solid bat>ts, by tbe partiea interested ; and therefore bind; himself by his word of boner to keep tbis agreement until he rhall have falicr powers for its final arrangement And, bavteg drawn out two pajers of the same ten' r, in corroboration of this we atiix our signatures, in tn? Independent State and R? rib lie of Nicaragua, this day, January 11, 856. c- ., . W*. Walkxb. SV*l : ^ A Lajjs. I be destruction of the government of the United State", MBLf ly ah a means cf buildirg ?P * government for himself with despotic powers, wai one of his aims, as will be plainly pereefved from the following letter from him, written to (ioicuria as late as the 12th ot August last: Gbakada, Aug. 12, 1856 Mr Dbab Gr-BXKAL: I send your creden tials for Great Britain by General Cazeneau. Thay are ample, and will be. I hope, not with out result 11 you can >.&en negotiations with Kcgland and secure for Nicaragua the port ot *sn Jaan del Norte, you will effect a great otjeel II will be a long ster towards our tnd Without San Juan del Norte we lack what will be in the end indispensable to us?a n?val force in the Carribbean sea The com snercial consequences of this possession are nothing in comparison with the naval and po litical results With vour versatility, and, if I may use the term, adaptability, I expect much to be done in Kngland Too can do mora than atiy American could pessibjy accomplish, because you can make tbe British cabinet see that we are not engaged in any scheme for annexa tion You can make them fee that tha only way to eut the expanding and expensive de i*. ?craey of the north ia by a powerful and compact southern federation, based on mili tary principle?. The sooner you go to England the better it -fill be for us. If possble, the treaty should be made before the middle of November. By that time the rainy seaeon will be or#r, and we oan open the next campaign. We malt have all our relation* with Central America fixed before the last of April, and nothing will so much facilitate us as the settlement of the Mosquito question. Above all, this part is necessary for the work we hava in hand af ter oar Central American affairs are settled It is needless for me to impress you with the importance of this mission ; for you, no doubt, feel it as deeply as I do. I hope to hear from you every mail. Can yo? not make ? ? write me a letter? Tell ? ? he must send me the news, and let me know whether "Cuba must and shall ba free;" but not for the Yankees. Oh, no! that fine country is not fit for those barbarous Yankees. What could such a psalm singing set do in tha island* Remember me to your family, and believe ma. yours, sincerely, Wm. Walker. Qen. D. dr Goicouria. A correspondent of the New York Herald published on Saturday last, in connection with the current Nicaraguan emeute, a suc cinct account of various acts of inexcusable and needless cruelty perpetrated by Walk* er?among them being his treacherous mur. der of Salaiar, of whom (long before Walk er was heard of) all well-informed North Americans knew, from his reputation as one of the most enlightened, public spirited and truly liberal gentlemen in all Spanish Ameri ca. Unfortunately for him, he conceived the idea that he could benefit hi3 country by in troducing into it, W Alker, with a band of San Francisco ragamuffins at bis heels; and he acc >rdingly imported W. and his original six ty-five followers. But we let the New York Mirror (which has taken the trouble to con dense the Herald's correspondent's account of Salaiar's murder) tell the story, as follows : II Don Mariano Salazar, was one of the wealthiest, bravest and most accomplished gentlemen yf Central America, a member of the rich bouse of Solan k Co , of Genoa. He married the beautiful and virtuous sister of President Castcllon. by whom he had several children. When Senor Castellon?one of the few men of Central America who could boast of the pure Spanish tavgri mvl in his veins? came to the unhappy determination of em ploying Walker to assi*t the causo of liberty iu Nicaragua, it was his brother-in-law, Senor Salazar, who furnished means which enab'ei General Walker to raise his battaiion in San Francisco, and transport both himself and it to the scene of operations "After this again, when Walker had been foiled in his fir-it m.id attempt cn Kivas, and when the administration by whom he bad been invited looked coldly on his want of mili tary prudence, it was to Salaiar he turned as his unshaken friead, and from him received such personal aid and advice a-? toenable him to continue bis operations. Those operations terminated in temporary victory, and Don Patricio Kivas was nominated President, and Don Mariano Salazarto a high official position. " Salazar was faithfully fulfilling the duties of this post, when Walker caused him to be arrested as he was crossing the Bay of Fones ca, on a visit to that family from which he bad torn himself in obedience to Walker's earnest prayer and cry for help The rest is known. Without any charges made against him?with out the examination of a single witness?with out defence or any form of trial?he was con demned to instant death, by the man he had sacrificed time, ease and fortune to elevate. The case stands without parallel in the rec ords of the world. "As Don Marinno w?s led out into the es Elanade. where his open coffin stood awaiting im, be plucked a large blue flower, of the convolvolu:" species, and made it his last re | quest to the attending confessor that this blos som, which he would bold next his heart when dying, should be conveyed to his wife, who was then eagerly awaiting his promised visit in San Salvador, a neighboring and neutral republic The intelligence killed her. poor lady! She tell into a delirious fever on hear ing it, and died in a few days, still holding to her lips the flower which her dying husband sent" Of the manner of men by whom he is sur rounded, the reader may obtain some idea from the following confession of one of them, not long since executed by his order for some act of insubordination, if we remember cor rectly. This confession wax published at the time, and we laid it aside for use when the proper time should arrive, as it has now ar rived : 1 " I was born (says Lieut. Jennings Estelle,) in Marshall, Tennessee, in the year 1833, and was raised irom my infancy in Hindi* county, Mississippi. I started to California in 1862. On the road I had a difficulty with n man of the name of Howard, and shot him. 1 after wards shot a man of the name of Hays, but the wound did not happen to prove fatal. In the same year I had a difficulty with Charles Robinson, and stabbed bim in three places. My last two difficulties, while in California, occurred at the State Prison, where I bad been unployed for the last tw?? years. After getting in the last scrape, I came to H ijaragua ?nd shot Tboe. Edwards, i afterwards shoe Charles Gordon. I must say that iu ail my difficulties I was not once iu my right min 1. Twice I bad been forgiver. and h.pe to te forgiven for them all. i think there is a God in heaven that will and can forgive, and He know* and 1 know, that it was not I that kill ed Cb riec Gordon. It was whisky and my crazed mind that did it. I say that I was not in my right mind wnen I did the deed, and God knows it Forgive me, officers and sol diers, and I can dio a happy man." We conclude this grave subject for to-diy, with the following brief synopsis of the fate and condUion of the Americans who have joined Walker, which we oull from a New York city exchange's comments upon the cur* rent controversy : " It appears from the official statement* in El Ntcaruguenu, Walker's newspaper orgac, that within the las! fourteen months be has received from the Uniied States a little over 4,100 recruits Of these, 144 are reported as having been killed in battle. Walker's whole force on the 1st of November, inolading the lad arrival of 325 men from New Orleans, under Col. Jacques, was, by the returns, only 1 ,'ilb men, leaving about 2,700 to be aocounted for. The discharges made by Walker are very lew, a*iJ only of those absolutely inca pacitated for service by wounds or sickness, except now and then one :vho has been able to uic?t?r the means to purchase his release from tbij (grading and dangerous servitude. A certain number have attempted to njn away, but this is too perilous for many to ven ture upon; and even tho*a who succeed jn c.-capmg the vigilance of their master run great n*ks ot perishing miserably of starva tion or sickness beioic they can make their way home. With the most ample allowance then for discharges and runaways, it is rea sonable L'j conalude that more than 2 000 young meu iro?? Walker s ranks have perished from the disorders the climate since Walker undertook hie tillibuslerjug conquest j of that country. ' We have but a word more t ? say to-day in thle connection, ami that is to entreat our soutLerfi read*** to ponder upon the facta grouped above, and then Lo ask themselves whether as christftns or patriots or true 4a feniers of the rights end interests of their own section of the confederacy, they are disposed to identify the cause of the South with Walker, his public exploits, schemes and acts as a man? If such southern men there be, it would be wsll for tha future of the South that they should be every <x* of thtm provided with straight jackets. An Xxampia To Be Followed.?Tmers^ent deWe:ion and arrest of Falconer, the treasur?r aad elerk <4 tha Petersburg aud Roanoke (Wtldon) Railroad Co, for peculation upon his truil has hardly been announced in distant ? j quarters of the country ore we hare news of his trial, conviction and sentence to two years confinement in the penitentiary (State's prisoo) ?f the State of Virginia, at Riohmond. Iu view of the fact that the staple of one bait' the newspaper oomment* of the North its tho abort* comings of Southern society, we beg them to pat this item in their pipes and smoke it?to reconcile it to the state of things which, in their self sufficient ignorance, many of the Northern newspaper conductors beiiere in as existing at the South. We know well that ex cept in oases of injury to life and limb, grow ing out of sudden quarrels or fights, both law and justice are more inflexibly executed by Southern juries than by any other in this country, and, more especially, by those of South Carolina But this Virginia oase affords an example that may b? very profitably treasured at the North. Indeed, suoh acts as those of Falconer are rarely brought to trial there, and more rarely punished While they are of almost daily occurrence at the North, ad far as we know Falconer's act is the first case of the kind that has occurred in the his tory of the management of railroads in a eUveholdiug State. International Copyright.?The American Publishers' Association (New York) at a late meeting, passed the following resolution : "Resolved, That in the opinion of this Asso ciation it would be highly desirable to the in terests of literature and tho book trade, that an International Copyright Law should be passed, with such stipulations and restrictions as would secure, mutually, a just and equita ble protection to the mechanical interests in volved in the question, both here and in Eu rope " Though it may be quite important, ao far as American publishers' interests are concerned, that Congress should enact their proposed In ternational Copyright law, to the great mass of American readers the case is very different indeed. A more glaring proposition to protect the interests of a certain class in the commu nity, at the expense of all others, could not le brought forward. Its adoption Would be di rectly in the teeth of the current of popular sentiment upon the doctrino of " protection for tho sake of protection." We have no idea that Congress will gratify Messieurs ?the Pub Ushers' Association. * Examine the Poll Lut?!-We call the at tention of our Washington readers ta the ar sessment (poll) lists which have rei-ertly b^en posted in various places throughout the city, as the law requires We hear that a large number of names of old residents and L .use keeper." have been omitted, we take it for granted by accident. It is most importatt to all who are entitled to vote here at the next election to inspect the list, each for bis own Ward. Those finding their names omitted can have the error rectified by the Board of Assessors, who will commence their sessions about the middle of next week. Those of the omitted win. neglect to attend to this matter will find themselves deprived of their votes next June, though they may have been born in Washington, and have been voters and housekeepers here for twenty years past. 8uicides ?The War Department ha? ad vices of the death of first lieutenant Trueman K. Walbridge, of the fourth artillery. United States Army, by suicide lie was under or. ders to join his company in Florida The Navy Department also has advices of the death of lieutenant John T. Walker, U. States Navy, by suicide. He was under orders to embark on the W abash, to join the St. Ma ry's on the Paoific coast.
