Nrinetion is interesting
Ecuador is represented to be in a deplorable state, every
branch of industry at a dead lock, and her principle port
blockaded by a Peruvian fleet. Peru is big with inearrso
tion, though far the present, matters were quiet. The
French legation had wised its intercourse with tit* govern.
ment seciountecif the illegal imprisonment of a French ,
man Chill as in a state of revolution. The Southern
Provinces are in arm., and martial law prevails every.
where. The alleged confirmation of Cass-Yrissari treaty
with Ntaavegna announoed shortly since, is doubted. The
English treaty was accorded • oonfirmationjent the Atiteri
men had Dot yet been ratified at the latest dales. It is
sad that tb• French hare secured • treaty similar to that
obtained by Sir W. G. Onseley. The news we have from

video, Mr. Bowlin and Corn. Shubrlck applied to the goy'
ere meat of trugnay fur some place of deposit for coal, and
for permission to land some of the troops. Both requests
were denied. The Commissioner expected but to remain
• few bona at Buenos Ayres. The Paraguayans, assisted
by several British officers, had placed their river in so
thorough a state of defence that it was believed to be im•
possible for the Americans to even effect an entrance from
the Parana.. The President, however, was said to be ready
to concede any reasonable demand of our Commissioner.
At Montevideo much excitement had been produced by
the hute of govereinent in its preparations for war. With
out exterisal enemy, or observable danger from internal
outbreak, it was mustering and equipping men ; and the
moment the steamer sailed, the troop!' were kept under
arms night and day. From California we have intelligence
of farther Indian trouble. in the Mohave country.- - A bat,
tie between the 49th Dragoons and the Indians resulted in
a repulse of the latter with 10 killed, and no loss on our
side. Gen. Clarke will take the field with 600 men, and
teach the redskins a practical lesson.
By passengers from Lebanon, Sy., the Louisville
Clouser learns of a molt distressing affair which °marred
near that place. Miss Susan Shunt, daughter of John
Shnok, Req., was to have been married to Mr. John
Thomas at 19 o'clock. Bat • few minutes prior to
the time the ceremony was to be performed her dress ac
cidentally °aught on fire, and the wedding dress, whloh
was of a thin material, was instantly in a blase, and the
young lady was fatally burned. Her sister, Mts. Burr
Harrison, in her ',trots to saw, her, grad her own dress,
and was, perhaps, even more severer burped. There is
bat little hope of her recovery, It is feared. Mr. Shuck,
and other nnamball of the fomily, who also tried to relieve
the young lady from her perilous situation, were burned,
but not eerioasly. The scene was terrifying beyond the
expression of language. The bride was badly burnt from
the waist up, sod the hair badly burned from het head.—
After her wounds were dressed, sod white she lay upon
her cowls', suffering the intensest agony, the marriage
ceremony was performed. Rooms bad been prepared at
t be National Hotel, In Louisville, for the bridal party, and
they were to leave by the evening train.

Pittsburg, ("barged with soliciting aid ander false proton,

from an intelligent and respectable Italian that there is a

them all off to jail for ten days each, as vagrants.
We find the following, under date of the Bth, In the

At Comminsville, near Buffalo, on Saturday night,
a man entered the graveyard, removed a corpse from a
grave, and placed it in a seek. In leaving the graveyard
he eras compelled to climb a high fence, and the feat wu

PROTEC'TION TO .4311111 CAN arm ass Janos°,
We laid before our readers last weak the mes
sage of the President, asking that means be placed
ip his hand during the recess of Congress to en.
ale him to protect our rights as a nation abroad.
All have doubtless read that paper ere this, and
also the stricturimeOle opposition presses upon
its suggestions. Many of those strictures are
not only severe, but unjust in the highest de
gree. In saying this we hope we lay aside all
partisan feelings in the ease. Were Mr. Boon.
ANAN ten times the Republican he is a Demo ,
orat, we would ohectrfully give him countenance
in the proposed measure. It is one which the
exigency of the times demands, and which, if the
country could for a brief period be divested of the
curse of partisanship, would receive an affirmative
response at the hands of the entire country.
What is it that the President asks! Nothing
more nor lees than that his hands may be
strengthened so that he esti protect the lives and
property of our citizens in their transet through
the territories of the South American States on
the routes to our Pacific possessions. Is there an
American citizens, be he a Democrat or a Repub
lican, who does not desire this should be done!
But, say the opposition, this would be conferring
upon the Executive the War Making Power, and
this would never do. We think it would be con•
ferring .no snob thing. It would only be placing
in his hand.s means of defense and redress, to be
used in case it became necessary through the
bad faith and treachery of the imbecile and worth.
less governments of the South Amerietn States.
Ai it now stands, in OW the traueet routes are
obstructed, u they have been, and our citizens
are murdered and their property pillaged by the
half civilised savages of those countriesi'the oral
means of redress is that of diplomacy. This may
be sufficient with a civilized nation, but it will
hardly avail with the half savages of South Am.
erica. They understand and appreciate the di,
plomaey of the rifle and the musket better. They
only know that you are in earnest when they
fled their towns bombarded, and the grape and
canister of forcible "diplomacy" rattling about
their ears. In short, our flag and our commerce
can never be respected and protested in the States
alluded to until the Executive is authorized to
resort to force first and "diplomacy" afterwards.
Thus much by way of introducing to our readers
the following well timed and judicious remarks
upon this subject from the columns of the Phila.
delphia Journal, a paper by no means a partisan
of the Administration. After adverting to the
too common practice of looking at all measures
in a merely partisan point of view, the Journal
"This mode of .passing judgment on the eon ,
duct of a ministry, is prolific of evil, and it forms.
in onr opinion, one of the most serious iources
of official recklessness and perversity in our gov
ernment. We are specially prompted to make
this remark, at this time, by what we consider
the disengennons manner in which the President
has been charged with bad motives, in his late
message to Congress. That document was a
plain and reasonable appeal to the legislature,
for a most necessary provision against probable
or possible contingencies, in which the lives and
property of American citizens might require the
protection of the military forces of the republic.
Such exigewies had arisen repeatedly, and greet
and grievoul' wrong had been suffered besatme
there was no power to prevent or avenge it on the
spot. This absence of any actual defence against
outrage done to Americans, when beyond the
jurisdiction of their country, has long been a
standing complaint on their part, and a humili
ating reproach to the government. In every one
of the inatanoes in which a naval commander up
on a foreign station has been called on to inter
pose on behalf of his oonntrymen against vio
lence or injustice of any kind, he has either de.
olined to do so, on the ground that his authority
was deficient, or he has dared to take the re.•
sponsibility under a fear of reprehension and dis.
grace at home. The consequence is, that the
subjects of no government are so unproteeted
when abroad, and so abused and insulted without
sufficient redress, as those of the United States;
and an American citizen, when in foreign lands}
suffers the mortifying consciousness that, how—
ever his personal or political rights may be in.
vaded, the representatives of his nation are pow--
erless to afford him prompt and effectual relief.
It was to obtain provision against this ahameflrl
weakness of our government, in an extraordina
exigency that Mr. Buchanan asked Congress to
strengthen his hands during their approachixig
recess. He saw that, in the unsettled and tte.•
tmlest, state of affairs on the Isthmus, and the
*canal inability of the authorities of the CentUal
American States to enforce respect for their ono
laws and the laws of natiorrs, our citizens wotild
probably be exposedovithont defence, to spolia
tion and even massacre, and he desired., very
humanely and patriotically, as we think, to have
some better resource igiinst such an emergency
than that of calling Congress together from the
extremities of the Union, to declare war upon
the aggressors. The language in which he ex ,
piained the reasons that impelled him in the
matter, and the request itself, were too explicit
and in telligible to be misunderstood. His obvi
ous purpose was not only a harmless, inoffensive
one, bat it was .eminently judicious and benevo
lent. But partisan enmity wilfully misconstrued
it. In seeking simply to give to American oil
setts sojourning is, or penult through eertatn
foreign territories, a more immediate proteetiOn
from violence than they would otherwise enjoy,
he has been accused of coveting the war-making
power with a view to provoke or originate hosti
lities with friendly States, and denounced as en
tertaining the ambition of a military despot.—
Having read the message carefully and without
prejudice, we ;maims that we cannot discover in
it anything that should either alarm Congress for
the security of its prerogatives, or the public for
the safety of their liberties. state paper, how
ever, may be very differ ently interpreted, accor

Ma. EDITOR : —March certainly came in like
s lamb this morning, let it go out like whatever
other beast it may The sun is shining clear
and bright., and although there is a little snow
left in spots, the weather is mild and spring like.
While all is so joyous and bright, in the Capitol
of the Keystone State, the scene is far different
at the Capitol of the Nation. There a gloom is
impending that no sun be it ever so bright oan
cheer. Today all that is now left of an able
lawyer, a man of brilliant talents, and a shining
light in dab fashionable circles of the city of
magnificent distanoes, who less than forty-eight
hours ago, was life, hope . and animation, will be
consigned to the narrow house appointed for all.
A gray haired,fond mother,will take from the gay
and fashionable scenes, where she fell so low,
her ruined, disgraced and heart broken daughter,
while in a gloomy cell of a dreary prison, may
be seen the emaciated face of the brain racked
and hesit tortured Sickles, who, in a moment of
frenzied madness, to avenge his wounded honor,
hurried, all unprepared before his Maker, the
immortal spirit of P. Barton Key. The details
of this fearful tragedy show the moral oorrup•
don in Washington, where so much politioal di..
honesty is constantly being carried on. It is
a sicknening theme to contemplate, and as you
will receive the full !Articular, from other sour,
tree, I will leave it.
In the way of legislation hero this winter, the
record will boar me out in saying, that two
months of the session have been consumed, and
very little, if any business of a general character
has been transacted. Oa Friday last the appro
priation bill went through the Committee of the
Whole in the House, but when it comes up on
second reading there will no doubt be various
amendments offered, and any amount of speech
making indulged in The House some time
since passel a resolution fixing the final adjourn
ment on the 15th inst., but has since then dist
covered this date was slightly previous, and an
effort was made yesterday afternoowto fix a later
day. The motion to reconsider the resolution
naming the 15th carried, but before another date
could be agreed upon, the hour of adjournment
arrived, and no time was settled upon. Young
members of the House freqhently indulge in the
bnnoombe flourish of advocating early adjnorn
ments, in the beginning o$ the session, to show
tfieir constituents that they are very anxious to
save time and money, but I have always noticed
that they were just as willing as any one else to
draw their pay and lengthy mileage.
This being private bill day, the House this
morning took up bills in their order, which were
not disposed of on the test lily; among which
was one to charter a bank at Lewiston, Hain
county. Pending the consideration of which,
the hour of 1 o'elook having arrived, the House
adjumed until 3 this aftertrvon. In the after,
noon the bank bill was again taken up, and pas
sed finally by a decided vote. It still has to go
through the senate b y the (iov•
ernor, so that the danger or having soothe r rag.

well understood that the Senate and the Gover

the Washington correspondence of the N. Y.
Tribune, a paper that would not be likely to give
the matter a coloring in favor of Mr. Sickles. If
the facts are as stated, there are few who will
blame Mr. Sickles. Certainly if anything eta
justify or palliate the taking of human life, the
offence of which Key is accused would. That a
high minded man should slay the destroyer of
his happiness, the invader of his domestic rights,
the seducer of her whom be had sworn to love
and protect, is not to bo wondered at-••.is it not
rather to be approved, for courts afford no ads
quite redress for such a crime? What a fearful
load of responsibility and shame rests upon the
guilty woman who has been a principal iostrn•
meat in this tragedy. Her conduct was as per.
fidious and shameful as its cionsequenoes have

DREADFUL AFFAIR AT WASELEGTOI.
Prom Special Correopoudeace of The Taboo.
WAsHINOTON, Fab. 27, 1A59
This city has been thrown into an unusual state
of excitement this afternoon by the shooting of
Philip Barton Key, United States Attorney for
the District of Columbia, by Daniel E Sickles
Member of Congress from the Ind ' Die•
triot in New York, resulting in the almost instant
death of the former. The circumstances, as I
have learned them from the parties on both sides,
including Mr. Sickles, with whom I have had an
interview in the District Jail, are as follows :
For more than a year there have been floating
rumors of improper intimacy betvreen Mr. Key
and Mrs. Sickles. They have from time to time
attended parties, the opera, and rode out together.
Mr. Sickles has heard of these reports, but would
naver credit them until Thursday evening last,
On that evening, just as a party vie about break'
ing up at hie house, Mr. Sickles received among
his papers an anonymous letter. ,Without open•
ing his mail, or knowing the oontenn of the let.
ter, he accompanied his wife to shop
Oa his return home at midnight, Mr. Sickles
opened the anonymous letter, which informed
him of the infidelity of his wife, of her intimacy
with Mr. Key, and stating all the details of the
manner of their meeting, and naming the plane
of rendezvous. The letter was so plausible in
its statements, and gave such precise directions
for the detection of the parties in their assign*.
uon meetings that Mr. Sickles decided to investi'
gate the facts. Accordingly he placed the letter
in the hands of two of his most intimate friends,
who last evening possessed themselves of the
evidence satisfactory to Mr. Sickles that Mr.
Key had rented a house of a negro in Fifteenth
street, which be Used as a place of rendezvous
with Mrs. Sickle,.
This morning, being in great agony of mind,
Mr. Sickles, in the presence of two witnesses,
charged his wife with having had illicit inter '
course with Mr. Key. Ai. first Mrs. Sickles de.
olared her innocence. Mr. Sickleas / then para
ded before her the evidence of her guilt. She
became overwhelmed with the sudden arraign.
ment, and fainted, and finally confessed her guilt.
Mr. Sickles was not satisfied with the verbal con
fession, but desired Mrs Sickles to make the cou•
fession in writing. She complied. She also in
formed him how often Mr. Key had been in the
habit of seeing her, and his mode of telegraph;
ing to her„by a wave of his handkerchief when
he wanted her to come out.
Mr. Sickles' residence is No. 7 President'..,
square, in view of the Jackson statue, which is
opposite the White House. In full view of Mr
Sickle's residence, on the other side of the square,
Firceen•and.a-half street, is the Washington
Club-House, where Mr. Key frequented, and
from the windows of which Mrs. Sickles says be
was in the habit of telegraphing her with his
white handkerchief. If Mr. Sickles was absent,
she was in the habit of returning the signal
About 2 o'clock today Mr. Sickles raw Mr.
Key wow out of the Club House and go round
the square and walk past his (Sickle's) house two
or three times. He made the signal for Mrs
Sickles once or twioe, when Mr. Sickles, arming
himself with a five-bore six-inch revolver and
two single-barrel Derringers . , which carry a ball
each-double the size of the revolvers, went out
of his house and walked down past the Presi.
dent's, and met Mr. Key. The latter greeted
the former, and was about offering him his hand,
when Mr. Sickles, refusing to take Mr. Key's
hand, said, "Sir, you have dishonored me; pre ,
pare to die !" Mr. Key started back a few feet,
exclaiming, "What for? What for' Don't:
don't !" and made a movement as if seeking for
a weapon in au. t, e. I...mat. but which proved t.,
be au opera' glass, which he threw at Siekl.•s.
Mr. Sickles then drew one of r , „d
shot Mr. Key, who staggered some ;
shot at Mr. Key again, with hiasecond Derringer,
which sent him reeling against • tree; be cried
out "murder," when Mr. Sickles tired a third
time, from his revolver, and Mr. Key f •Il Mr
Sickles, believing him dying, desisted, and did
not tire again.
Mr. Samuel F. Butterworth, Superintendent
of the Assay Office, New York, was couversing
with Mr. Key when Mr. Sickles came - up, and
witnessed the affair, and then went with Mr
Sickles to the office of District Attoruey r•
al Black. He expressed a desire to sumeder
himself. and accordingly sent fir the Mayor, the
Marshal of the District being absent, and, in
company with that magistrate, rode in hi- car
riage to the D.striat Jail, where he has be• ii vi
ited by a large number of his friends, from , lif•
ferent sections of the country, all of whvm
pressed grtat sympathy for Mr Sickles
After learning the facts, Mr Sickles e.inv. r-zcd
freely on the subject, and justifies bitusulf II
said to me, "He has dishonored me, sod w e ( . Al ll
not live together on the same planet "
Since writing the above, I learn that aftr Mrs
',.;tekles confessed her guilt, her huibaul , h.sua au I
od her to return to bun her wedding ritia, au I
desired her to write to her father to send for h. r
and take her in charge. Ihr father is Autio

The last time Jiro. Sickles sod Key had been

On that occasion they entered in the back way,

the h.mse was then occupied or not?
" Yes, sir," was the response.
"Very well, that's all I want," the mysterious
gentl. man rt plied, and turning around, walked
away in the direction of K. street..
lie was observed, however, to hang around the
neighb. , rho,d a good part of the evening. Event
ualty Key was seen to leave the dwelling, and
the strang..r muffling his face still closer, spoke
a few word.; to Key and then hurried off. It is
supposed by many that he was the author of the
_Yr. Sickles knew of an intimacy existing bei
tween .Mr. Key and his wife. He supposed it
simply an innocent but incautious flirtation, and,
on account of the scandal that it excited in many
circles, be remonstrated with her. She did not
pay aoy heed to these entreaties of her husband,
but continued uninterruptedly her singular, but
(by her busbaud) unsuspected intercourse. Key
was known to be in the habit of attending the
theatre, opera, balk, soirees, and other places of
gaiety and fashion, and was almost invariably
accompanied by Mrs. &Alas. He, indeed, foL
lowed her everywhere.
It is said that Key was accustomei to boast of
his attentions in this quarter, and that et the
National Club House the criminal intercourse
between himself and Mrs. Sickles was well
known, and formed the topic) of conversation.
Mr &cities dwelling was opposite the Club
House, and Koy was accustomed to go up stairs
to a window iu the latter building, overlooking
Sickles house, and hang out signals - to Mrs.
Sickles He would also go in Lafayette square,
wave his handkerchief at her, throw out kisses,
and make profuse demonstrations of attach.
Before the fatal denoument of this unhallowed
intercourse, Key had been time and again warn
ed by his friends that something dangerous would
grow from his criminal attachment. He was act
eustomed, however, to treat these friendly ad.
monition- with an air of haughty bravado. lie
would listen to no remonstrance from any quar
ter. He had been known to boast of his amours
in s .ciety, anti it is said that Mr. Buchanan, being
informed of Mr Key's character, had made out
hi dismissal, and was only waiting to select a
sueoes=or, previous to sending in the document
to the Senate, when Mr. Key met-his death.
