Esq ,of Boston, to Mr Marey, Sec retary of State, occupying nearly three col omas of small type, respecting this island. Mr. Shelton claims it as being its first and only possessor, and the first discover of the guano thereon about a year since, lie wad driven off. by a Venciuelan vessel-of-war, by force The Dutch have since taken it from tho Venerueleans. The English claimed it also, bat they have eince given up their claim, j seeking, how&ver, to get a participation in the [ me of it. jfj, Shelton, who is. we le:ru, a resject'.ble merchant of Boston. claim3 indem nity from tho Veneiuelcstn Government to the a ncunt of several hundred thousand dollars for that tortuous dispossession hi December last, of his egents. he having sent several ships and some hundred hands to ob>.in tho guano on the island He also claims tbe island and the guano as his property, but offer? to transfer the island, reserving the guano, to tho United State.; wi.hout charge He demands that Mr. Marcy shall send a vessel-of war to Venezuela to enforce this claim lie then asks for a vessel of-war to convoy his ships and men to repossess himself of the island, now claimed by the Dutch, p^d fiom which he was forcibly ou?teu in Dece^i - ber la?t And 'ue also asks, if these requests cannot be granted, that he be given leave to fit out an armed expedition, on his own hook, t? do the same Mr. S * says, English nnd French merchants, in Northern Atlantic cities, ' assured of the protection of their Govern ments,"*' have off red to buy h'S right; and '>e asks if he shall dispose of it, a? fcc is in clined to do if his requests cannot be granted The guano on She!ton's island is reported to be worth six or seven hundred thoa^aud dol lars. Ilia dispatch cite-: numerous autho i'ies on international law. ani was minifestly pre pared by some shrewd Yankee lawyer to Uy the foundation of a big claim against the Gov ernment of the United State6, and perbajs also wi'h the desire to make a case against the powers that be, if any contingency rnado it plausible. That those in charge of the Gov ernment will do their duty i? not to be doubted, and we presume they arc the proper per^ns tojulgeof tbe time, place, and manner. The management of our foreign relations and diplomacy has not generally b'.en deJegucd to claimants, or their lawyers, or newspaper editors. An jther Depredator upon the Pension Of lice Convicted?A B.Graham of the State vt New \ork, has been convicted of the crime of forgery, in applications for bounty land, before the United States District Court forth? Northern District of the State of New York, at Hs present session in Rochester, in paid S.tate and sentenced to seven years imprisonment in the State prison. This man h is been a sort of itinerant agei;t, and seldom appeased as such in his true name. He practiced prosecuting application!" in the names of soldiers in the war ol 1812 ^ho had deceased, and wculd fre quently forge all the sigmtures necessary? except, tho name of the county clerk, by wh^se certificate the papers were authenticated These replications he wou i send to the Pen si\>n Office under varic-uj names, snd from dif ferent places, and wouid require answers to be sent to the various post offices wheie the application were mailed Tho Pension Office discovered somethicg wrong may months since. but cculd not, for dome time, ascertain the author of the^e transactions At length, sufficient discoveries were had to justiiy tho sending a special messenger into tho State to ferret out these various frauds Accordingly, tha Chief Clerk, S. Cole, E*q , former y a resident in the ccunty from which many of these suspicious claims were ?ent, went to New ; York, and discovered the perpetrator to bo . A. B < 1 r&hiin. whom ho caused to be arrested 1 aQd indieted The prosecutions have been ; continued for come months, and came up for final triai this week, and reeuited as above st.) ted I' would seem that the gang of villains who ha.e beti-ged the Pension Office with thoeu fraudulent claims would soon be dispersed, as we are ic.f ri^cd this is the eighteenth convic tion that has been had for these offences wi'h ia the last two years. The CommissiiLer. however, says the:e are "eeteral of the same sort still left, whose tracks, ?f we mistake not, he has already ditCuvered. Their fate, from tho experien:e of others under like cir cumstances, maj be easily foretold Work, as , ia tho Washington Navy-Yard. ihe large iron buoy3 which have been con st; ucted at the Washington navy yard, during the last win er and spring. for the light house service, are now in the course of distribution along our coasts, to take the places of the smaller bcojs hitherto iu general use Vve learn that the buoyaga of all tbe prin cipal harbors, sounds, Lays. Ac., on our coast, a now being thoroughly systematieed by marking each danger and channel in such a manner ;hat the navigator, with the buoy list in his hand, cannot fail, wish ordinary care, to avoid the one or follow the other In our immediate vicinity we note that the Chesapeake Bay has already be?n well ( marked according to the general plan, and | that the Potomac river, from the head of nav ' igation to its mouth, is now boiDg buoyed properly and thoroughly for the first, time, ihese aids to navigation, when they can be fully relied upon, are a great benefit to the mariner, shipowner, and merchant. An apt illustration of the great value of theie exterior aids, is found in the present well marked channels in the James river, when a short time since, scarcely a week elapsed that some damage to the steamers running fr m New York to Richmond was not reported, whilo now such accidents sellom occur. During the last year, tho channol of this important outlet to the ocean has beenmaiked by four good lights, one day beacon and buoys of the be^t description, and properly dis tributed, have been placed at every important point from Rocketta to Hampton Hoads.

We announced in our paper of ye?terd?y af t irroon that tho America had arrived at Hali fax in tho morning, but we failed, unaccount ably, to receive any news by her ever the wires jn time forour publication. Although the ad vice? sre one week later than the preceding, by the B*liic, the state of affairs concerning the ?v tr have undergone but little if any, change, SKBA9ropoL still stands, which fact of itself embraces the whole story. The dates by the America are to the 12th instant, and the intcliigecoo may thus be summed up. The news from Sebastopol is brief The public have finally concluded that the war must be a protracted one, and without hope of Siistance from Austria lhe Aliios have gained partial successes be fore Sevastopol, bat nothing decisive has transpired Several extensive failures were spoken of {rivately at Liverpool the day the stfamer aiiod. but the nnmes had not tran pired. The English pre<s admits th*t all hopes of 1 i ec.ce have fled, and that no assistance can be | expected fr ,m Au'tria and but little from the! j rts: of Europe?consequently France andl1 England inu^t he j re pa red to Ji.*ht it out, j The London 'limes publishes an article ex pressing the-e views. The same paper also has an editorial in behalf of the government, I -tatir.-g that it is impossirle to peruke the of-|| ficial of the Vienna conference|i without se^in* that Russia never was in ear nes" in Ler pretended desire t>r peace. Earl Grey. in the House of Lords gave no- I tics of a motion that an address be sent to the I 0'ieen deploring the failure of the peace ne-1 gotiati: ns at Vienna, and setting, as the opin ion of Parliament, the belief that the propo I sals of ilusoia were never such as to afford a| fair prospect of concluding a peace I Correspondence from the allied camp up to] the 27th of April explains the difficulties of tho Eeige, and Btate? confidently that the allies | are advancing their acquisition of the ground I bit by Lit, and, while t ;eir works so advance, I there can be no doubt of ultimate success, pro-1 vided the Russians in the field should be una-1 bio to force the allies to raise tho siege Marshal ?

Ihree ships left England on thelGthtol blockade the White Sea. j The following is from the London Standard: I " A very extraordinary circumstance is re I ported from a quarter which precludes any I doubt as to the truth of the statement It I reaches us by letter from St Petersburg It I appears that a fine Amerioan frigate-built I ship recently arrived at a port in the Baltic, I where it was stated that the vessel had on I board eight bales of cotton, but theoorre-l spondent of our informant visited the ship, and found that in addition to this cargo, she had on board 50,000 rifle and five thousand revolvers? The Messrs. D , merchants of Bos j ton were passengers on board the vessel!" j The Standard aeks, " What are our oonsulB in the United States abouf, to have permitted I such a cargo to leave without apprising the government hereof the facts?" j Symptoms increase that the Austrian and Russian cabinets are attempting to effect a I general accord amoug the German States. I The editors of the semi-offioial journals have [ united to favor the movement. 1 ENGLAND i All the documents in regard to the Vienna conference bare been laid before Parliament. These documents, extending over ninety I | pages, have been partially republished in tbel English newspapers and exoited much in? I j te-est. '?

The project of a new loan of seven million francs is under consideration by the Council of State.
