ORDERS TO GENERAL HITCHCOCK.
It appears from official documents that the com
mission oi General Hitchcock, of December 16th,
authorized him to esnfer with General Butler, and
designated him as agent to procure the exchange of
soldiers and office! s upon terms not conflicting
with the position of the department in relation to
colored soldiers, nor surrendering men without
just equivalent, man for man, and officer for
officer. Subsequently he was directed to ex
change first those who had been longest confined,
and to waive for the time consideration of ques
tions of parole and excess of rebel prisoners in our
He was allowed, also, to exchange colored men
in civil employment for men in civil employment
captured by our forces. On the 25th of December
General Butler sent forward by Assistant Com
missioner Mtilford five hundred and two prisoners
from Po'nt Lookout, asking in exchange a similar
number and leaving in abeyance all existing dff.
ferences, with assurances that their prisoners in
our hands were well cared for, and suggestion
looking to an immediate exchinge of convalescent
or disabled prisoners.
■ In communication of the same date he asks the
exchange of Alfred F. Bengle, of the Sanitary
C’cmmi.-sion, confined in Castle Thunder- the
whereabouts and condition of Lieutenant Mason
and private John Woolanu, of Ohio regiments
and also inquires into propositions covering
the cases of the officers and crews of the steam-rs
and Arrow, captured by the.rebels last
Commissioner Ould reiterates, in a note toMnl
jord, a willingness to exchange all prisoners, the
exce:s on either side to be on parole, and says this
is the provision of The cartel, ancj we can icce,,t

• The President sent to the Senate, to-day, a com
munication from tne Secretary of State, in aaswer
to the rvsolution of that body,'declining to trans
mit the correspondence relative to a reciprocal
.reaty with the Sandwich Islands. An applica
tion had been made for. the revival of a treaty
similar to that negotiated under Ex-President
Pierce’s Administration, but it was not approved
ot by the Senate. The main objection is founded
in connection with the probable effect upon the re
venr.es in ihe present, juncture of onr affairs.
The Supreme .Court of the United Spates to-day
delivered an opinion inthecaseof the proprietors
of the bridges over the rivers Passuioand Hacken-I
sack, p ain’ifis in error against the Hoboken Land
and Improvement fompany, in error to the Court of
Errors and Apptals for the Sta e of New Jersey.
Justice Miller, in announcing the opinion of the
Court, gave at length the history of the contro
versy, from which it appeals that the plaintiffs,
claimed the exclusive privilege of erecting two
bridges over three rivers, according to a franchise
conferred upon their possessions in 1790 by the State
of New Jersey, and that therefore, the act of 1800
could not give to the de/endants a similar privilege
witbintlie prohibited limits, it being against the
constitutional provisions forbidding tbe impairing
of contacts. *
Tbe Justice, in the review, said the grant to-the
plaintiffs was conferred seventy-three years ago,
when the idea of railroad communication did not
enter into the minds of the legislators of that period.
Steam said tbat time had produc ed a total revolu
tion in travel and was destined to have a still
greater jrllnence upon the affairs of the world.
There could be no impairing of a contract, as the
bridges and viaducts over which the road passes is
a mere continuation of the ra>ls and do not’eake
away or interfere with the toils from the'erossing
of pedestrians and vehicles.
Justice Miller said the Court was satisfied the
Court of. Irrurs and Appeals bad pronounced
sound principles and, therefore, its judgment was
affirmed with costs.
The Supreme Court, in a patent cose, pro
nounced tbe opinion tbat purchasers of patented
instruments, on which the patent] had been ex
tended, bave the Tight to use such machines or
instruments until they aro worn out. although the
patent, may have been subsequently extended,
without the payment of additional royalty; but
ihat the right to sell such patented articles expires
at the termination of the‘time for which such
patentbad been issued, and does not cover any
extensions of said pateut. J
THE STEAMSEIP LINE TO EUROPE.
Yesterday alternoon, at four o’clock an ad
journed meeting of the gentlemen having under
consideration the subject of a line of steamships
trom Philadelphia to Europe, met in the ollice of
the Pei nsylvania Railroad Company.
Mr. Frederick Fraley occupied the chair.
Colonel William G. Morehead, of the Commit
tee op Finance, reported some additional sub
scriptions, but aid not stale tho amount. One of
the sub' committees, however, reported havincr re
Mr. Lorin Blodgitt, Secretary of the Board of
Trade, then addre-sed the meetingntmnch length.
Ho said that an elaborate mem rial'to Congress
has been prepared by the New York Chamber of
Commerce, relative to the subject of steamship
lines in this country. He called attention to the
remarkable frequency of the cancellation of Ame
rican tonnage. Nearly all onr large sailing ships
have had their tonnage transferred within a vear
past, at the rate of forty or fifty a month.
These vessels are sold -to foreign parties, and it
is not likely that others will be built to replace
them. Iron sieameis wll certainly take their
places. An Englishman has published a pam
phlet entitled, “The Destruction of the American
Carrying Trade”—the British having fonnd that
in their own steamers they can do all our carrv
ing trade, and after this year, it is not at all likely
we shall have any large carrying trade. ’
Mr. Buzby was of the opinion that the present
state of affaire was preposterous. of bein'-
as we are,, he thought we should have a largely
creasing marine, and it seemed we are not using
the public press as we should. There is no reason
why steam to Europe should not ba established,
and public sentiment could be stimulated by the
press to secure contributions. Public meetings
should be Jield, and the minds of the people pro
perly instructed. The difficulty really Is, that a
foreign cousin has come amongst ns and volun
teered the capital, and' the only way to get over
this was to look beyond the twenty or thirty gen
tlemen mainly Interested in the matter, and make
the thing general. The public press shbuld be
used, and persons now not thought of would
williegly become subscribers.
Mr. John C. Oresson agreed with Mr. Bnzby,
and be regretted to see that some portion of the
Corn Exchange favored the establishment of a for
eign line. He thought they would be amongst the
first to regTet it; and although the speaker was not
m business, he greatly hoped to see a Philadelphia
line of ships established.
Mr. Bnzby replied that Mr. Richardson was a
member of the Coni Exchange, extremely popular
with that body, and to that popularity was owing,
in a great measure, the favor with which their
suggestions were received.
Mr. Pectin said that as one of the Committee
on Publication, he knew that nothing had been
said npon the subject in anv of the newspapers.
The speaker would be one of fifteen to subscribe
the requisite amount to make the subscription
reach S3UO,OCO. He considered it mortifying to
fook forward to failure. Much has been lost by
tbe refusal of gentlemen to serve on the committee
to procure subscriptions. The labor is one of
love, and, If the proper kind of gentlemen would
serve, it would prove highly advantageous. The
speaker was one of twelve to give 525.000, which
would make $300,000, and that would be sufficient
to commence the line.
Mr. Bnzby thought that each gentleman should
pit his hand in his pocket, and make np a publi
cation fund, to issue a circular to'the public in
general. He moved a committee of three be ap
pointed to prepare a memorial to Congress at tbe
The motion was agreed to, and the Chair ap
pointed Messrs. Buzby, Pechih and Blodgett as
Mr. Treason moved that the committees, as now
existing, be continued, and that this meeting as-
Mmble at the call of toe Chairman, which was
Mr. Fechin stated that this matter is warmly en.
cotiinged by onr State Legislature, and that if tht*
ine once started, liberal aid may be expected
from the State authorities. *
The meeting then adjourned.

THE MALDEN BANK ROBBERY AND MURDER
Post oil, Feb. B.—After the search ot Green a
person he was conducted into an adjoining room,
where he was informed that he had been followed
and watched fot some time. Thereupon, without
any unusual emotion, he confessed his guilt. He
stated that on the day of the murder he visited the
bank twice; the first time he found there a con
dnetor, who left a pair of skates; the next time
was at half-past eleven. Immediately on entering
he went into the director; s room, and seeing no one
drew his pistol, a six-barreled Smith 4 Wessin re
volver, placing the muzzle within a foot of young
Converse’s head, and fired, theba’l taking effect
under or back of his ear. He instantly discharged
a second barrel, the ball taking effect in Converse’s
temple, while bis victim lay on the floor.
After the consummation ofthe deed he seized the
bills in the drawer, about five thousand dollar-,
and went to his own office. He iniormed the per
sons present that aportion of tbe money was con
cealed in a piece ot the newspaper in an old bo >t
