The news from Sebastopol in to the 20th nit, eight tys later than onr previous account*. Prince Gorts akofl, the new Russian general- in- chief, arrived tners that day. On the 17th three battalions of Zouaves (attacked tie sew redoubts, and were driven back with it loss. ? Advices from Odessa of the 21st, state that the Rus elans, in npite of repeated attacks, maintain the posi tion th?y had taken on Mount Beponne on the 24th Feb ruary, from which their guns play upon the French Unas and upon pert of the camp. Omtr Pacha arrived at the camp of the allies on the llSth. On the 13th the Russians opened the fire of their batteries on the heights of Balaklava. The English, as sisted by Gen Vinoy a, routed them. Lord Raglan writes from Sebastopol, March 10, that the weather continues^exoeedingly fine, and that great hopes ?were entertained that the sick would materially benefit by the change in the temperature. Every effort was being directed to the maintenance of the oamps la a healthy state. The advanced batteries of the English imy were making considerable progress. According to the information of deserters, the event of the death of the Imperor of Russia had not been promulgated at Sebastopol. On the 14th the Turkish cavalry at Eupatoria made a |sortie, but were repulsed. It is understood that the plenipotentiaries at Vienna otve to a formal understanding on the sense of two first pointe, and that the critical and third point? that on which the question of peace or war turns [?is now approached. lite continental newspapers continue to repeat that the allies have oeas?d to insist upon the dismantling of Sebastopol, and journals which have been with Russia throughout the contest bow admire the "conciliating pretensions" of the allies. The latest accounts from Vienna state that the dsllbe a lions on the third point had commenced, and it was ex VMtd aavMral days. Intelligent from Vienna, dated evening of March 27, ates that the political horizon has again become eomy, and that the conference on the third point anything but satisfactory. Although the Western do not insist on rating the fortifications of Sebas il, they] require other conditions not favorable to Btnssin. The London Htrald ssyt: ? We are Informed on good ithority that the Emperor of the French has agreed to 60,000 additional troops to the Crimea if it should necessary after the Vienna Congress, on the condi that England shall find vessels to convey them. Emperor Loals Napoleon and the Empress will arrive a England on a visit to her Majesty Queen Victoria, on 6th April. Tbe London A'euw says: ? The more candid pro Russian apers commence in anticipation those taunts which we aust expect &? hear from all sides if the Crimean expedl Ion should return without having attained its object. According to the Vienna Prtue, the English govern sent has very favorably received the project of trans ^forming Sinope into a strong fortified port, and also of unding Constantinople with extensive fortifications, on the land and sea sides. In the House of Lords, the Karl of Clarendon moved .t tbe message of her most gracious Majesty, in Response to the treaty with the King of Sardinia, be nsidered. The noble Earl observed that the state of r finance* being inadequate to the expenses of an nay abroad as well as at home, she'had applied to gland for two millions of monsy, at the rate of four cent Interest, one per cent of which was to be ap plied to tbe Kinking fund. The address was agreed to. In the House of Commons, on the 26th of March, the cond reading of the Newspaper* Stamp Duties bill ^rax car riei by a majority of 215 to 161. Sir C. Wood it was intended, as soon as the ports in the Baltic White seas were open, to establish a strict blockade, bich should be effective from first to last. Lord Pal lerston moved for a loan of one million to the govern ment of Sardinia, and if tbe war should last more than year, a second million. After some discussion the ?tote was carried. The Sebastropol Inquiry Committee continues its Eings, and the revelations made become every day ?e and more appalling. Mr. S. G. Osborne was ex ned on the 24th March, and as an ?ye witness of the les which he describes, gives ths last touch to the ?dreadful picture, by informing the country that ths rounded snd sick soldiers, by hundreds and by thou tands were literally starved to death. The annnal general meeting of the Court of Pro nators ot the British American Land Company was held ,t the London Tavern, London, on the 26th ult. Alex. ?Sillespie, Esq , the Governor, in the chair.

The stated after deducting expenses, payments, ke., feat the company's real estate might be fairly estimated ,t ?100,009 at) eve what it was put down at in 1861. The ?^airman ssid that after having gone carefully into the ?span?'s affairs he had oome to tbe conclusion that if J1 tbe land were taken at tbe present selling rate, its alue would represent ?677,000. which cost the com nay?including all ths charges upon it, and deducting ^11 tbe less*) up to the ptesent time ? ?240,000.

A bother source of congratulation to the pro prietors ws? the opening of several lines of railway, blch tended materially to enhance the value of ths ?operty. In the money market, the Vienna Intelligence caused |he finds to evince an upward tendency; but owing to * unexpected causes, they sgain slightly receded. ?JodsoIs wsre quoted at 92% to 9S for present transfer, nd 93 to li for 11th April next.

The conterer cos at Vienna continue to be the ohief point of attraction in Europe. Prince Gortschakoil, as you aie already aware, la empowered by Alexander II. to treat upon the tour point* or baaes, and we are already aware that the two flret polnta hare beeu aatlifactorlly fettled by the plenipotentiary. To put an end to the preponderance of Russia in the Black Sea in a tlckliah point? yet hope* are entertained that both parties will make such conceaniani aa will lead to peace. The Western Powera will not (so aaya rumor) demand the diimantllng of Sebastopol; the Dardanelles will be thrown op<>n to the world, and such other steps taken as will protect the Turkish territory from any fu ture invasion by Rusala, and guarantee the privileges of ?11 Christian communities in the East. Every endeavor is being made to knockSebaatopol to pieces as aoon aa pos sible, and we have rumors to the effect that the assault has actually taken place, but no confirmation of them. There has been some serious lighting. nppears that on the 13th March the Russians opened fire from the batteries they had succeeded in establishing on the he:ghtt>of Balaklava; and on the 17th made a general attack on the whole of the lines of the allied armies. We have not any details as jet, but the Russians are reported to have been driven back with great slaughter. The French have been sending rockets into Sebattopol, which have set the town on Are in different places. An English battery had sunk a steamer Insloe the port. The husslans are said to hare received considerable rein forcements. A letter from the Crimea of the 12th says : The Russian forces are said to be distributed as fol low h ?At Pereaop is encamped the corps of dragoons, a division of light cavalry, and various other detachments amounting In all to 20,000 men, under the command of General Pawloff I. At Simpheropol there are sbout 45 1 00 men, commanded by General Read. Near the Be\hek, General Oiten-Saoken's head -quarters have been placed, with 60,000 men, In eluding the garrison or ^OrTthe'Tchernaya Is encamped Geteral Llprandl, with 18 00<> men, and in ihe valley of Baidar is General Wag ner. with 0,0(10 men. It appeal s that the tirst operation which Gereneral Osttn-flacken had executed, en his ap pointment to the chief oommand, was to have all the heights along the coast oocupied and fortified Irom Ka rebelnayn to the mouth of the Tcheraaya. 1 he Heights on the left bank of the Alma have also been fortified, and this defensive system seems to show that not only is Bsktchtserai the centre of the General * operations, but that a greater Importance is attached to the com munications of Baktchlwrai with fiebasto^ol and with Arabat, than to those of that town with Perekop. The Russian*, in fact, seem determined to defend to the last extremity the basin of the Saltlr as well as i the ground extending from Simpheropol to Reffh, their inUntion being, to all appearance, to procure their provisions and atorea from the side of Anapa, and their reinforcements from Peresop. Should the Allies think tit to enter into operations not immediately in the neighborhood or 8e baelopol, it is no*, improbable that they will act against Baktehisernl, the centra of the Russian positions. Omar Pasha had paid another visit to Balaklava, and a council of war was held between him, Lord Raglsn, and Canrobert. A very bnlllant little affair took place at Eupatoria on the 5th March. On that day Skender Beg left Eupatoria with three hundred irregular cavalry and one hundred Tartar Ba sil! Bazouks, to make a reconnolsaanee, and he was met by four strong squadrons of regular Russian cavalry. Notwithstanding the disproportion of numbers, an eb stlnate struggle enrned. At last, hard pressed, Skender Beg was compelled to letreat.^retlrlng slowly and fight ing inch by inch of ground. In this affair the Russians lost abuat thirty men. The Tartars made five prisoners ; but they afterwards escaped. Skender Beg had only 11 men killed and two wound ad, but he himself received a very severe wound. He received a sabre cut on his right hand which damaged three fingers and rendered amputation of a fourth ne cessary ; he alio received the thrust of a lance near the heart; but the moat curious wound was ? cut from a sabre across his forehead. No fears are, however, en tertained of ftaving the lire of this brave and dashing cavalry officer. The fortifications of Eupatoria are being circled on with great activity, and will aoon be terminated. Skender Beg or lakender Beg Is a Pole, and janks as one of the best cavalry cfflcera In the Turkish service, fr'ellm Pacha, who was killed in the action of the 17th at Eupatoria, waa the brave mameluke, who, at the time of the massacre of that corpa by the order of Mehemed All, sprang hla horse over the walls of Cairo. The firat division of the Baltic fleet, the flying squa dron, as it is called, ha* sailed. So we ihall shortly have fighting la that quarter, the Russians have sunk ships a la Sebattopol, in front of Cronttadt. Old Ad miral Dundonnald is sgain before the public. He re mains firm in his statement that he can destroy all the Baltic forts and Sebastopol if the English government will but give him a carte blanch'. lh? eecond reading of the Newspaper Stomp Mil haa token place. The object of thU bill ia to do away with stamps on newspaper*. ThU will lead to the crea tion of a number of clieap journal*, and the Timet ia strenuously opposed to the bill. There does not exlat auch a thing as newspaper copyright, consequent!/ the Time*, whose bulk ii so great, and will have to pa jr ex tra postage, is strenuously opposed to it. Moreover, it very justly avers that all the ntwa for which it pajs so highly will be cribbed and ptinted for a penny. The whole question 1h discussed at length in the debate. The first division of the Sardinian contingents for the Crimea has sailed. It is now currently reported that the Emperor Napo leon and the Kvprees Eugenie will visit England. The viait to the Crimea remains in ttaiu quo. The Vienna Conferences. [Vienna letter, March 22, in London Times] The first of the Four Points ia settled, and the second, which relates to the free navigation of the Danube, was yesterday entered into by the Conference. During the first three meetings all went on smoothly enough, but the sitting of yesterday is said to have been very stormy. What It was that roused the bile of the representa tives of Russia is unknown, but the offensive proposition is supposed to hare emanated either from Count Buol or Baron Prokesch, as both these ministers were yesterday evening in very bad repnte in the Russian camp. Politi cal correspondents, like those diplomatists who are not members of the conference, can form no clear and con nected Idea of what is cotng on; but you may be assured that the Russian eagle will not escape without hsvlng had its wings and tolons so closely clipped that it will ' for the future be comparatively harmless. Per haps no me In this city, except the confertnee ministers snd their assistants has even the most clstant idea of what the three protocol* alieady signed contain; but authentic information has retched me that the way In which the question relative to Mol davia, Wallachia, and Hervia has been settled is highly satisfactory to the lour Allied Powers. Home slight mis givings were felt thst Austria would, to use the expres iktn of the honorable member for Tam worth, "numbug" the Western Powers: but Connt Buol and Baron I'rokesch are said to have behaved in a way which excited the ad miration of the representative* of England and France. Wben Lord John Russell spoke, and on what *ut>jec;4be spoke, ia unknown; but he must r?cently have made an excellent speech, aa Baron Prokesch yesterday expressed his high admiration of hia eloquence. You will ntturai ly find that the foregoing la a very meagre account of what is going oc here, but the Information which yon have hitherto received, and may In future receive from roe on the subject of the conference* ia likely to prove perfectly correct. This morning a Cabinet measenger was sent off to England with despatshe*, probably contain ing an account of what took plaee at the conference of jesterday. which lasted from one till Ave. As has been said, the first point is settled, but it would be errtneout to auppone that the conference has entered into the more minute details of the matter. The fnndaaeental prin ciple* of the firat condition have, however, been exactly defined, and, a* i* said, ia several paragraph*. Prince GortachakoiT and M. de Titoff have evidently consisted it neoeeanr* to rally all their force* around tt-.em. for M.

THS Latest. [Telegraphic from Vienna, March 27. P. M.] The political hortaan has again become somewhat gloomy. It is said that yesterday'a conference, which was the first on the third point, was sot satisfactory. Although the Western I'owera do not insist on razing the fcrtincatioci of Sebaatepol, they propose other con ditions which are not agrteable to Russia. Oprrattoni Before Bebaatopol. [From the London Times, March '27.] The last account h irom the Crimea allow us to enter tain a belief that the condition of thetroopi is materially improved. The fire or the Russian batteriea on the beighta of Baiaklava opened on the l^th, but without eiiect, for the enemy waa routed by the British troops, assisted by a French diviaion: and four days later, when the Russians attacked the whole line or the allies, they were driven back with great loaa, and viotory tbua mark* | the opening of the second campaign. We aooept for all they are worth then* indications of an tmarovemsnt in the aapect of oar affairs, and we heartily wish that we could extend these encouraging prognostica tion* to ail the circumstances of our present mili tary position. But neither the laat puolw despatches from the allied camp nor the private communications we receive from numerona authentic sources are of a nature to heighten our confidence, and we cannot hut regaid with considerable anxiety the inert character of our operations nt a moment which appears to ua to be in the highest degree critical. The object of exposing the troops of the allied armiea to the hardahipa of a winter passed among the bleak hills anl damp ravines beiore Wbaatopol was to enable them to take effectual advan tag* or the first return or the dry season, and especially of that interval during which the Rnsalans rnuat still be rut off from their reinforcements. We are unwilling to prejudge the conduct of the allied Generals; we hope that the successful engagement of the 17th of March may speedily be followed by more decisive reaults, but it is impossible not to remaikthatof late all the original ity and enterprise shown in these operations his been on the aide of the Russians, while the French and Eng lish armies seem condemned by t'uair commanders to remain on the aeftnsive within their lines. Yet their numbers are reported to be no', far short of 120,000 mtn ? a force atup'y sufficient to undertake with auccess two or tnree distinct operations of war upon a scei e of action so contracted a* the aouth of the Crimea, in presence of an enemy not now superior in numbers, while we ourselves have abundant means of transport to every part of the coast. The army at Eupatoria might be so re-inforced as to enable it to take the Sell; an ex pedition might be detuched on Kaffa, so as to take the Russian positions in the rear and destroy Ibeir maga zines; a strong reconnoissance might advance to the Bel bek, or fcrce the passes of Baidar; or, lastly, the whole strength of the armies might be concentrated on the siege It would be presumptuous in ua to attempt to determine which'of tnsse courses all tne circumstance* of the case render expedient, but we spesk irom high military authority when we say that < ne or more of these operations must be attempted, unless we nre pre pared lor a termination oi this enterprise hardly less in glorious than that of the Athenians against Syracuse. The same want of command which was ao fatally per ceptible in the arrangements for the winter encampment of the army, and in all that related to the storei, the hospitals, and the port or Baiaklava, now begins to manl lsst it' elf in the preparations of the army for the Held; and we learn that oar gallant allies, whose troops are numerous and well prepared for war, view with great surprise and some discouragement the inactivity of their own chief. The prosecution of the siege haa for many months been regarded, with reason, as the primary duty of the army. The approaches directed against the southern side of the towu of Sebaatopol have been pnabed forward with infinite labor and perseverance; batteries have been constructed and armed with new gtuis of a heavier calibre; and an immenss supply of projectiles and am munition has been transported frem the harbors to the front of Ihe lines. Ibe day on which the fire of the besieging armies would reopen on the place has been repeat-illy named and impatiently expected. Yet it would seem that some donbts are still entertained of the result of this attack, and still graver uncertainty prevails a? to the possibility of the sseault by which it was to be followed. The Rus sians, on tta other side, have displayed extraordinary energy and skill in extending the defences of toe place. No sooner was one portion or thsir works m?niced by a battery, though as jet unmasked, than thoy tJuad means to establish another redoubt, so as to command oar guns. The seizure and fortification of the right bank of the Careening Harbor is described as an act of singu lar boldness ana judgment on the part of the enemyTior the troops which hold that position are separated from their base of operations by a deep and impassable ravine; yet the attempt to dislodge them from it was uusuccess ful; that attempt waa not repeated, and aa this point re mulns in the band of the Russians, it materially inter feres with the projected attack on the Malakhoil tower. I.ord Raglan writes that the besieged forces are bring ing forward their advan sed works with great activity, and that the roads on the northern aide of the place are covered with stores of food and munitions of war, which he cannot intercept. Yet we hear of no attempt from the 23a of February to the 10th of March to check these formidable demonitrationa, and to avail ourselves or the superiority or the allied armies. We can only in fer that in the opinion of the Counoil of War the dangers of such an operation outweigh its probable advan tages. But if the siege operations, properly so called, are re duced to this inactive condition, the greater is the mo tive to retort to other means of attaok. If our lines are extensive and difficult to guard, the concentric lines oc cupied by the Ruasiana beyond our outposts must be still more so, and General Oaten -Sacken ia, moreover, compelled to watch with a conaiderable part of his army, the intrenched position of the Turka at Eupatoria. More over, we now learn that the attack on Baiaklava and our Unea baa failed. It la atated, probably with truth, that fresh Ruaalan divisions are attempting to advance from the Dnieper to Ptrekop, but that tbev have been stopped in their march by the melting of the snow on the steppes they have to traverse. The country in the Crimea ia, on tin contrary, alreadyjfavorable to the movement of armiea, and Ewe have reaien to believe that, without materially weaken ing the forcea required to protect the works, it would be practicable for General Bosquet to operate with 30,000 mtnon tbeBalbek. while fir Colin Campbell might ad vance with a conaiderable force towards the east. The moral condition or the army, its confidence in its chleri, and in the ultimate auccesa of the enterprise, would be powerfully revived by a movement or this nature, and the military reasons must be extremely strong which as jet deter the generals from attempting it. Our political interests at the present juncture equally demand some further proof of the unabated power of tbe army to enforce the terms we are endeavoring to dictate at Vienna, for the language of our diplomacy and the policy of other nations are of course materially affected by attitude of our troops. The troope only re quire tote Jed against the enemy. Their trne safety lies in tbeir power of attack, and in the bands of a general of enterprising and original genius the rate of Pebastopol would be determined outside its walls. THE LiTERT NEWS.

In your raper of yesterday you traualate from the Port an I'riiice Feuillc du Commerce of March 24th, a moat gross attack upon tbo fair fame and nam* ot iuv brother, which I cannot permit to go unnoticed, a* he is uot here to speak for himself. I notice that jour artiule hai been copied into the Ilerald, the Times, Kxpren and other paper*, and I must request of you an immediate explanation, desiring all papers which have copied the original artiole to give car rency to t his. The iirticle of the Feuille Au Commerce, I wiih yon parti cularly to observe, is communicated. and bears upon the face of ev?ry line thu uiost nnmittakable evidences ot vindic tive malice. I do not know the other ?ontlemau referred to, or anything of their affairs, l>ut 1 pronounce every word therein contained in reference to my brother unqualifiedly false; an<l the author, whoever he may be, a cowardly liar. No less epithet could apply to such an individual, and no brother could laave it unsaid. My trnttier, Sidney Uaksmith, to whom the article refers, represented our government at Aux Cayes for about two years, and I have reason to believe to the entire satisfaction of tbe State Department as well as to the resident mer chants nnd American shipmasters who visited the port, and I have heard many of the latter speak ot him with unusual retard. He was also a partner in the house of 3. Oaksmith A Ce., with Mr. Charles Lioring, a native of the island Last summer my brother w*s taken down with the yellow fever, whioh resulted in an indisposition, from which be did notgo cover till some time after hii return to the United stalls. His physician advised hii return, and he wrote to the De Iiartment for permission, which was Ranted. He left the ?land some time in Ootober last, leaving all of the assets and the whole affairs of the house in the hands ot his part ners. He did not even take money enough with him to pay the passage ot himself and wife, as I advanced the money for that puspoie upon his arrival. As regards any business between the house of S. Oak smith A Co. and myself, I have only to say that I am their largest creditor, they being indebted to me for not only oath advanced them, and balances due on cargoes, but also for debts of theirs due to parties in the United States whioh I have assumed in part for my brother's sake; not one dollar of whioh has ever been remitted to me by the house at Aux Cayes since he left, alttwugb I have retson to believe the assets when collected will mora klian cancel the full indebt edness of the house. Y.ry "'P^tfull^ 0AKSMITH. Court of Oyer and Terminer. Before Hon. Judge E. P. Cowles. THE POOLE MUBDER ? THE MOTION TO ADMIT THE PRISONERS TO Bill Afml 12.? Mr. H. F. Clark said that the proposed SB the part of the accused to produce such further evidence a* would show their probable innocence and entitle tbem to After some remark* from tbe District Attorney, Mr.Hall, 'n opposition, tbe Court, said that the principle was well settUd that tbii Court bad the same power to ball ai that of tbe old Kings Bench of England. If tbe Court poasessel the power to bail, it must cave some facts and circumstance* before it by which It should be guided, and these must be the depositioniuand proceedings before the Coroner, the committing magistrate and the Grand Jury. What limit there Is to that testimony the Court was not prepared to say. He remembered one case in which he was himself engaged as counsel, In Columbia, county? an antl rent case? the case of Big Thunder, as he was called It was a case which, upon its face, it was apparent to every one acquainted with the facts, ro conviction could have taken place. Where the evi dence Is apparent that no capital conviction could be had, a party should not be confined to jail, but was en tilled to be admitted to ball. The Judge was not pre pared in this ease to say whether the Court has the power to look beyond the testimony at the Coroner's inquest; but when passing on the question, he was dis posed to have before him all the testimony which the law authorizes or justifies. He could not say that he was prepared to go beyond the well settled principle, though he may have the discretion. He would prater, therefore, having the question fully argued. He could conceive that a party might be subletted to very great hardship by being compelled to remain in jail, when, if the facts were fully elicited, there would be no pretence that a ooe viction could take plaee Tbe Court also suggested that if there was anv further testimony beyond that al ready taken before the Coroner, he., it should be m'na voce tn order that the District Attorney might have the opportunity of cross examination. The argument was set down for Saturday. Mr. Clark intimated that the prisoners would all de mand separate trials, and asked the District Attorney when he would be prepared to go on with the trials. Seme of the accused parties were ready and anxious that their cases should be disposed of. Tbe lrirtriet Attorney replied that pretty nearly every ?lay for the nest two weeks was set apart for some other cause. Be was not therefore prepared t) say when he wonll be rsady. The Court adjourned for the day.
