In all probability she was Attained at Liverpool several days over the tune assigned for her departure. We give elsewhere the evidence taken yesterday before the Coroner in the Poole tragedy, and an ac count of the proceedings at a meeting of the friends of the murdered man, held last evening. Baker is still at large, although the police have made the greatest efforts to discover his hiding place. The fetUef is general that he left the city on the last steamer bound for Aepinwall. The United States t-tean frigate Susquehanna, Captain Franklin Buchanan, arrived at Philadelphia yesterday. We give a lilt ot her officers aud a sketch of her cru'ife in another column.

Edward P. ?owles, Esq.. of this city, has been appointed by the Governor Justice of the Supreme Court, in place of the late Judge H. PierreiMjnt. Kd wards. Mr. Cowles has but recently removed rrom Hndscn to this city, and it has excited no little remark that many of our citizens, in every M*pe< t qualified for the post of Justice, have been ?verlooked by the Governor in mtking his selection. No business of importance was transacted in eHher branch of the legislature yesterday. Both houses adjourned at an eaily hour to Friday next, ?t 12 o cionk, to visit the institutions under the charge of the Almshouse Governors. On Thura. day they will set out on their peregrinations through the hospitals, where smallpox, ship fever, loafers and lun*'.i:s, misery and mtdnens ?bcund; and cn Wednesd?y they wi 1 banish all these things and many more from their minds by a dinner at the Astor, with all the trimmings. Presently after this bout is over, look < ut for an accession of numbers to the doctrines of the Maine A Rochester paper publishes an article showing that nearly ail the pointed passages in Senator Goodwin* Washington's Birthday oration at Al bany, were taken from Tom Paine's eulogy on the life of George Washington, delivered at Newbury, ?crt, Mum., fifty-live years ago. K!?where the reader will find an account of an alleged embezz ement of the fnndsof the Pacific Baak to the amount of $1S, 000. It Is charged that Johi B., ex-bookkeeper, is the party guilty, and that be has decamped for parts unknown. It is eoppoeed these defalcations have continued for a oeuple of years, the officers in the meantime being wholly Urorant that anything wroog was occurring. What precious queer maragement these bauks ex I hibit!

The nativity table shows that three hundred and thirty four of the de ceased were born in the United States, seventy-seven in Ireland, fifty three in Germany, eleven in England, and the re mainder in other foreign ccuntiies. In the case of the United States against Bartho lomew Blanuo, a merchant of this city, being a charge of slave traflicking between the West Coast oi Africa and Cuoa in the bark Millaudon, Commis mivsoner Morton yesterday rendered his decision, discharging the accused from the warrant of arrest.

Other articles were without material change The New Bounty Land Hill? Amount of Pub" He Lands? Stupidity and Cupidity oT ( ou grvas. The new bounty land bill, including a land grant in behalf of every man who ever shoul dered a gun in aDy of the white or Indian wars of the United States, since the Revolution, (the soldiers in that war having been previously pro vided for), will, it is supposed, absorb an aggro gate of at least two hundred millious of acres> allowing a reasonable margin for forgeries and bogus claims. Now, let us see where we arc to come out with this bill. According to the report of the Com missioner of the General Land Office of the third of June, 1854, the following are the sums of the public lands disposed of and remaining on hand : ? Acre t. .Aggregate of public domain in Stated and Territories 1,391,480,320 Sold up to June, ISftS 103, 197, 346 Given away 148,910,881 Total, Hold and given away 252,114,237 ?Acre* unsold and unappropriated 1,139,336 083 For the snke of round numbers, let ua put the amount at eleven hundred millions ol acres still on hand, and where's the alarm ? This bounty land bill will still leave nine hundred millions; and even should existing bounties, grants, reservations, sales, pre emptions, &c , Co* er another hundred million acres, we shall still have eight hundred millions of acres re maining. Where, then, is the alarm? Is not this remnant of eight hundred millions enough or all the purposes of railroad grants and home stead bills for fifty years tOcome ? 1 be wiseacres of Congress have unquestiona bly been acting under this delusion. But these tremendous figures of the Lund Office have de ceived them, from the simple neglect of the Commissioner to deduct his deserts and moun tains. Let us throw a little light upon the subject ? ho amount of public lands undisposed of In all the land Mates eaet of the Mis MMippi, and ;u Ijouisiuna, Arkansas Missouri and Iowa, west of said river, Add iliunMo 1 68, 1 f.8,8 1 8 acres 1 snuneao.a H&,U65,b01 ?? And the amount is 253,414,419 acres. Ainl here is the bulk of the arable public lands of the United States. The remainder of the eleven hundred millions of acres on the books of the General Land Cflice lie in Kan fas, Nebraska, and the great plains south stretching to the Rocky Mountains, and in Oregon, Washington. Utah, New Mexico and California. Now mark what follows-dud our ? stimates are deduced Irom the official reports of the engineers and from the I rivate accounts ol thousands of intelligent travellers, emigrants, voyageurH and trappers, including those that have perished from cold, heat, thirst and starvation. We .'ay that the bulk of the public lands now remaining lies in the two hundred and fifty three millions of acres given above, and that settlers, pre emptions, grants, and the new bounty bill, will absorb the whole of it. What, then, have we left ? Kansas ami Nebraska? In lets than three years all the cultivable lands of those Territories will be appropriated by set tlers. California? Spanish and Mexican claims and Hjnatter sovereignty have already appro priated the mass of the arable lands there. In Oregon the actual settlers, under an act of Con gress. have left but little of the narrow habita ble Pacific selvage of that Territory. In Wash ington Territory there may yet be twenty or thirty millions of acres of desirable timber lands. In I tah the Mormons have monopolized all the little green patches, except a few occu pied by the Indians, but useless to the white man. In New Mexico, excepting the territory of the Gadiden treaty, there are no habitable lands unappropriated, and tho?e of the Gadsden district are good for nothing but u railroad route to I be 1'acific. In a word, Irom the great plains west of the Mississippi to the Pacific ocean, between the Hritish boundary in the North and the Mexican boundary in the South, there are, we dare say. seven or eight hwndred millions of acres, in arid plains, rocky and mow covered mountains, nnd sandy deserts, which, for agricultural purposes, are good for nothing. Between the Columbia river and the Gadsden boundary there is an absolute desert of volcanic moun tains and sandy wastes, very much like that of the ancient Israelites. Dead Sea and all. em bracing an ?r"H <t not less than five hundred millions of aeres horribly scanty of water and vegetation, and mainly without animal life, ex cept prowling Indians, reptiles and vermin-a hideous and howling wilderness. Yet. the Commissioner of the General Land Office in u c] < this tr . t among the public lands unsold ami nnapproprinted and Congre-s pn? their bounty tad him! railroad and other Mi | accordingly. Seven or eight hundred millions of acres of waterless plains, sandy deserts and volcanic mountains counkd J? the aggregate of the public lands! See the late report of the Secretary of War r,n *!?? rt cent Pacific Kailrond explorations, and the reports ?f Fremont. Kearney. Kmory, nrtrl. lett, Abort, Lieut, litre/, Col. Cwke, and a host of others. We Buggest to the mem>^r8 of the next Congress ? elected and to be 'jlected ? a study of these faotB, and that it would be wise in legislating upon the public lands to knock off from the eleven hundred millions of acres of the Land Office at least seven hundred millions to the account of rocks, wastes and deserts. Let the treasury no longer be fleeced upon the false pretences of the big tigureB of the General Land Office. M?rk Speculators in thk Legislature. ? The last dodge of the Wall street speculators is to apply to the Legislature for a special char ter for a company to be called the "New York and Brooklyn Ice Company," with a capital of $250,000 and power to increase it to half a mil ion. On the face of it, the thing is a hum bug. We have in this State a general act for the incorporation of all companies ot this na ture; why are not the "New York and Brooklyn Ice" people content with this, and what need s there for a special charter in their cose? On what ground can they demacd of the Legisla ture of this State to depart from its settled po icy in reference to such matters, and to lend a hand to the ercction of a monopoly? Moreover, an j body who chooses can collect ice, and sell it without acts of the Legislature or any thing of the kind; what is there in the case of this company so different from that of the other dealers in ice, that they require to be specially incorporated? Look at it in every light, and the only object to be gained by the charter they demand, is the privilege of palming off a worthless stock on the public, and creating a new fancy to be dealt in, and knocked up, and knocked down, and swindled with generally. It the Legislature has it in heart to encourage this sort of thing, by all means let them incor porate the New York and Brooklyn Ice Com pany. The ice trade is doing pretty well a-? it is. On the strength of some experience in Europe and this country, we venture to assert that there is not a city anywhere in which ice is so plentiful or so cheap or so good as in New York. The amount consumed is fabulous. For this summer's consumption nearly 300,000 tons have been stored, which are distributed as follows : ? Knickerbocker Ice Co., tons .......100,000 L ister Ice Co 66,000 Rockland I.ak<- 65,000 Turnbull&Co 25,000 Hyley, Wincii & Co. (new Co.) 25,000 CatskiU Ice Co 14,C#0 Total 294,000 All these concerns manage to exist, to fur nish pretty good and cheap ice, and to make money, without special acts of the Legislature. Why make a distinction between tbem and others? Tuf. Steamer Massacovsetts and the Fili busters.?' The examination of witnesses con cerning the alleged filibustering equipment of the steamboat Massachusetts is a rather in teresting affair. Certain warlike looking sad dles, and harness in boxes, an unusual quantity of coals, quite a number of casks of water and water tank?, blacksmith forge, tent poles, wagons, hand carts, pistol bolsters, life boats, &c., were found on board. Such is the testi mony of Mr. Angelis and Mr. Cook, of the United Statqp Marshal's office. But it appears that they saw none of George Law's musketa or secondhand artillery on the boat, and only some twenty-five or thirty pacific looking men. The boat was lying t il' towards the Jersey shore, as if ready for a start at any moment. All this has a strange look, but perhaps it was all right. African slavers, sometimes, when overhauled on the high eias, clcan up everything so as to make a plausible appearance, and perhaps the filibusters may have learned something from their experience heretofore. There has been a filibustering expedition nearly ready for sea, or else the administration and the Cuban au thorities and General Quitman have been egrc giously deceived. Curious case, this of the steamboat Massachusetts. What could those handcarts have been intended for? They would be useful, as we all know, for baggage transportation in Cuba; but the boat was bound for New Orleans. No muskets discovered. Very curious case. Col. Benton's Tunnel ? The Highest in the Would ?According to the report of the topo graphical engineers assigned to the survey of Colonel Benton's great Central Pacific route, an iron road by that route will, for many hun dred miles, be the loftiest in the world, and it will have a tunnel at a higher elevation than any other tunnel, excavated or projected, on the face of the earth. This tunnel will strike thi ?ugh one of the depressions in the backbone of the Western nuanteiM, at an alti tude of 9.540 feet. Mount Wanhtagton, in New Hampshire, is considered a giant? the Allegha tiiesare regarded as a grand chain of mountains; but put the Allegbanies on the top of Mount Washington, and the higheit of the Egyptian py ramuls on the top of the?e. and Col. Benton's railroad tunnel will still overtop them all. Wb think that Old Bullion is right. The Pacific railroad being a moonshine enterprise, he pro poses to build it above the clouds. From the mouth of Colonel Benton's tunnel wc look down with perfect contempt upon the Kinney expe dition. Mk. Pierce's Vetoes. ? We remember hearing of a man at Washington, who, in General Jack son's time, took to smoking a clay pif? with the constancy of a Dutchman. Asked for the reason, he ?aid "Old Hickory does it; it has made him popular, and why should'ntl try It?" So with Mr. Pierce's vetoes. Old Hickory exercised the power. and why <-hould'nt Young Hickory try it'.' And he has tried it. He has I vetoed the Lunatic As>lum Land bill, the I River and Hartor bill the French Spoliation I, ill, and the Collins Steamer bill, though he signed the same identical appropriation the very next day. And yet Young Hickory, is not popular. Failir.g upon his spoils system, upon Jhe Grey town Itomburdment. upon the Nebraska Mil. and upon the Cuba question on 1 oth sides, he has also failed to make anything of bis vetoes. What a lucky man was Capt. John Tyler! ICm.ukh'av.on n Mkiu'ian. They have iwssed a bill in Michigan substantially repeal ing the Fugitive Sla\ela\v. Th^y are liolder than the Seward men of oar Assembly. What is the reason ? Are Mr. Seward's followers at Albany afraid of the Know Nothing?? We fcnow that tboy hate the South as intensely as 1 the free soilers of Michigan; but still thty hold i hncfc. Can't the Know Nothings at Albany in | llucc -be artful dodgtrs of the Seward coalition 1 to 'how : heir hands rn the F ,-itive Slive law I Suppose tbey try. and then put the question of obedience to the ccBatftqtion acd the law? to the pt epic. A Good Opining fob ths FuibcstbhS.? We have entered upon a nine months' recess of Congress. From a state of desperation the administration has sunk into indifference and lethargy. Congress have given it neither money, discretion, or advice upon the Cuba question, and Congress are to be absent for nine months. It will be strange, if in the in terval, we do not "hear on some fine morning of a formidable Anglo-Saxon descent upon the Island of Cuba. They know they may never have such another opportunity. What says Marcy? THE LATEST NEWS. BY MAGNETIC AMD PRINTING TELEGRAPHS. Important from Washington. Mil. 80FI.E AND THE PRESIDENT ? KCMOKKD CHANGES IN TBS CABINET? GEORGE M. CAM. AS ? THE P&B BlDlJiT? GENERAL QUITMAN AND CUBA. Washington, March 10, 1865. We have manj confessions and a few explanation* re lative to the late negotiations with Spain and the report of the ')s tend, er rather Aix la-Chapelle, conference. I understand that the I'resident has expressed to Mr. Sool6 his lull concurrence in all the negotiations with Spain, and his manner of conducting them, and also in the pro positions laid down at Ostend for the acquisition of Cuba. Mr. Soulr appears to be satisfied that the government Is right about the Cuban matter, and that all the difficulty and vacillation in the Cabinet have been produced by Marcy, and in part by donble dealing on TOe part of Bu chanan. It is actually believed by some diplomats here, who are skilled in such matters, that while Buchanan was expressing his concurrence in the report which he signed at Ostend, he was at the same time writing letters expressing entirely different views, to some of his particu lar agents and friends in this country. Mr. Soulc Is very nearly reconciled to the President. It is plain that he concurs with Mr. Soule; and the only question is, whether he will put himself in direct opposition to Marcy. That a partial'change in the Cabinet is under conside ration is one of the chitf topics of conversation in the knowing circles here. The day before yesterday tl think It was, General Cadwallader, of Pennsylvania, dined with the President. General Cadwallader is a very inti mate friend of the Hon. George M. Dallas, of Pennsylva nia, and of Jeff. Davis. I understand that, in the event of a change in the Cabinet, the opinion of General Cadwallader Is, that George M. Dallas would be jnst the man for Secretary of State, providing that Marcy received leave to retire, in consequence of the imbroglio in which he has involved the Spanish negotiations. I understand that the Presi dent concurs in this opinion, as to the ability and fitness of George M. Dallas for the office of Secretary of State; in the event of a change; and that change is to be .deter mined by rapidly coming events. There seems to be no doubt of the fact that Mr. Buchanan will shortly be back in Pennsylvania; and it is probable that Buchanan, Marcy and Mason, with one or two others, will be laid on the shelf together. A very interesting interview took place the other day upon the sidewalk in Pennsylvania avenue, between the President and General Quitman, the ch ef of the filibus ters who are going to take Cuba. The President was attended by General Cadwallader, of Pennsylvania, and General Quitman was accompanied by several members of the New York Cuban Junta. A very interesting con versation ensued, followed by a warm invitation from the President to General Quitman that he would pay him a visit previous to his departure for the neutral island of Cuba, where he is going to get up a revolution. This interview created a terrible explosion in various circles. The President retraced his steps to the White House, and Quitman returned to his hotel with a view to the preparation of the first bulletin for the liberation of Cuba.

Please let the reporters take espe cial pains to garnish the speeches in the best possible manner. The epaulettes and yellow plume* are down upon the City Militia bill like a thousand of brick. This morning remonstrances against its passage flowed Into the Senate with a strong cuirent. One from the first brigade, signed by the brigadier, staff, and four or five lieute nants in the line; one from the Fourth regiment of artil lery, signed by the colonel and stair, and a dozen officer* in the line ; four from the Seventh regiment National Guards: one from the Eleventh regiment, signed by the colonel, staff, and a few of the line officers; and another from the Seventy sixth regiment, by the colonel and eight or ten oflicers. Mmf one hundred names out of some six thousand persons belonging to the First di vision. does not exhibit a very formidalde opposition to the bill. Generals tandlorj, tlall and Yates should be active in procuring remonstrances aga.nst tbe bill, if they really desire to defeat it, \esterday the opponents had a hearing before the Senate committee, an 1 advocated the defeat of flip bill. Th?y were nio?t triumphantly answered by Major Cocks ami Captain Waterbury of the Assembly. A Rochester papernf tbe date of Oth ins'ant, (yester day .) containing a review of Senator Goodwin's oration on the -Ud February, was f reely circulated through the Senate and House this Tbe review accuses the Senator of extensive plagiarisms, and places extracts from his Albany oration in juxtaposition with sentences which, it says, 1-ltaken from an eulogy on the life of Gen.
