The crimes of Lopez.
Letters received by the last arrival from
Buenos Ayres, from a prisoner in the
hands of Lopez at the time of his down
fall, hilly _confirm all previousreports as
to his crimes. He personally witnessed
• the execution of the brother and brother
in-law of. Lopez, the Bishop of Paraguay,
the Portugese(maul, the mother and
wife of Colonel Martinez, and the Priest
Bogarell. He also saw the two sisters
and the remaining brothers of Lopez
shut up•in -carts d driven away, and
report says - they ha e all been executed.
• Bliss and bane an say they regard
• their, treatment b the American navy as
far more humiliat
. g than the cruelties of
Lopez, because p ceeding'frpm the rep
' resentatives of a 'vilized nation. They
are here to ask an investigation into
- what they consid r a national disgrace.
31asterman rep ited at the State De
partment, anti w informed by Mr. Se
ward that there no cause tor action
against him. Bliss ha@ not yet reported..
Admiral Davis appears to to have made a
mistake - in treating these men as c'rlmi
nals, and Washburne and the gentlemen
• themselves are' disposed to insist on in
quiry into the matter.
Trtz Americana in Rcime had a grand
ball on Twelfth night. The wide atone
stairway of the old Palazzo Gregorio was
well lighted, lined with trees and flowers
.all the way up, anti covered with a sub
stantial carpet. - The anterooms 'were
filled with shrubs and plants, the red
berries of the holly intermingling with
the pine, the fir; and the box tree. The
• drawing-rooms were festooned with flow
era from the lofty ceilings, the side walls
being decorated with busts, pictures and
the stars and stripes. Houdin's bust or
Washington, draped in the flag, was jusf
above Healy's picture of--fleneral Grant,
while opposite was a bustof Lincoin, and
on the side wall one ofVoveinor Ses
ard, surmounting Buchanan Read's can
vas,- "Sheridan's Ride.", Fragrant flow
ers were everywhere, the lights were
brilliant; the music excellent, and the
stone floors well protected by, carpets,
with crash for the.dancers. The compa
ny numbered over two hundred and fifty,
with half a dozen exceptions, all Ameri
cans' from New England to California.
The dancing, which began at 10 o'clock,
was kept up with unabated spirit, and
when' the German, or cotillion as it is
called, was reached, there were more than
thirty couples on the floor. During the
early part of the evening, a buffer was
provided, with sandwiches, cakes and tea
for the ladies, together with an artistic
combination of champagne, green tea.
pineapples. strawberries, lemons and
snow. Toward' midnight the supper
thorn was thrown open, , the - tables well
covered and prettily decorated, the cakes
iced to represent the stars and stripes, and
pretty:little American flags upon all the
LEONARD CHOATE, who was arrested
at Bt. Paul, Minnesota, a few da3ks ago,
on the charge of causing the numerous
fires:that have occurred in Newburyport
during the last two years, is a man
about thirty-five years of age, a ship
joiner by trade, and in good circumstan
ces, and belongs to a respectable family.
He has been suspected for a long time,
and it is believed that the knowledge that
evidence against him had been obtained,
• led hire to depart for the West about five
• weeks ago. Daring his absence no fire ,
has occurred at Newburivort. Among
'the • circumstances directing suspicion
against him is the fact that the boxes used
to "Set the fires are of the materials similar
to those used by the prisoner in his bust-
nese, and bear the marks of tools owned
by him. There are other facts, it is said,
which tend to fasten guilt upon him. On
the other hand, the Newburyport Herald
says, that the fires:lave, been against his
family and friends more than, anybody
_else; that he has been highly respected in
the community, and that there was no
reasonable motive for him to 'commit
these crimes. If proved guilty, the
Herald thinks thatinsinit' y will be found ,
at the bottom of the whObs. I
THREE deserters from the United
States Army Were recently "drummed"
• out of the service, having been sentenced
to have their heads shaven, their - left
hips tattooed with the letter D (signify
( ing deserter,) and to be dishonorably dis
charged from the United States service.
In the morning the harbor of the battal
ion shaved the hair from their heads,
leaving them as bare, as .a clean-shaven
face. Then their pantaloons were taken
off and the letter D stamped with India
ink upon their hips. The officer of the
day, together with a guard, supervised
the execution of these penalties. In the
afternoon, at the dress parade, the unfor
tunate fellows were brought out in their
undress, with their shaven heads uncov
ered and marched (headed with the drum
corps, and followed by a guard) in front
of the whole command, through the navy
yard to the various offices, and then into
the city through several of the , prominent
streets. After being exposed and pasaded
in this manner for some time, they were
then formally dismissed, and' ordered to
leave the garrison which they did with
an air deep sha me and mortification.
GEN. ROBT. E. LEE made application

some from the rural district of Upper St.

fine; the grain was growing green when
winter set in, and up to the present time
I never saw a better appearance. The
fruit, I think, is all safe yet. At the pres

which to the buds is a sure and safe pro
tection from the severe freeze of the last
few nights. Stock generally looks well.
Farmers have very generally reduced.
their stock of sheep from one-fottrth to
one-half. The number weighed at the

for the past four months was near

practical and economical system of nicking pure

EX.TRA.CT OF BUTTER PLANT.
A brief allusion to the origin of this imt ortant
, tit . prove uninteresting.
the anthentka d records of the renowned Cap
tain Cook's voyage around the world, is Bound
the statement, that while sojourning fora short
thus on the B:Hien Coast of South America, he
observed the natives using, in the preparation of
their food, a Peculiar oil, which, upori examina
tion, he found to possess the appearance,' taste
anti flavor of Butter; upon farther Inquiry, how
ever, he ascertained that it was simply a nib
stance that thcl natives distilled in a crude and
Imperfect manner, from, a rich and luxuriant
plant that grew Ispontaneously and abundantly In
i that warm tropical country. A few tea rs ago,
an eminent Preach chemist, while on a litotes
denial visit to the tropica, made numerous exper

flue-grain, arid leven color.
3d.—By the ; use of this Extract, Ode pound of
delicious fresh Butter Is actuallythade from
one pint of milk.
4th.—That a pure and excellent table Butter Can
be made; at a cost of from lb to 20' c — nts per

able chemists, la pronounced perfectly free from
any deleterious Substance. the Ingredients be
ing purely of a vegetable nature.
Bth.—ln proof of, :he foregeing assertions, the
hictory of this company Is making one ton of
Butter per day; which meets with ready sale
