This he succeeded in doing, and now, alter six years of the severest trial we would iuvite the careful atteiitien ot all interested in such matters, believing that they will be fully convinced ot its practical value both for durability and economy, in which respects wc believe that its equal is not at present known. This roofing can readily be applied to roofs of eviry description, either steep or flat, and cau be put on over shingles or tin, being much cheaper than the first and at half the cosi ot the latter. Two coats ol the mastic put on over an old leaky tin roof, will ra ike it, as good as new at one-third of the cost. In preparing this roofing a heavy drilling or canvass is used, whieh is thoroughly saturated with a perfectly water proof pieparathin, alter which it receives a thick coating, upon both sides, of the flour ol soapstone, which sets into the texture ofthe canvass, aud gives it a firm body, making it very elastic and durable. After the canvass, as prepared, is put upon the roof, another coating ol mastic,which is tbor.iii"-hly tilled with sand, is given it, making it fireproof in every respect. By exposure, this coating becomes firm and solid, giving y„u a roof that cau be walked upon with perfect impunity, and as durable as an> thing known; and we do most candidlv and unhesitatingly believe, far superior to anything ot the ki d yet discovered ; and alter a severe !est ot many years, .-tand as reliable aud good as when first, put on. without change or decay. All that we ask is, that a ■arelul examination may be given it, and we feel convinced tbat it will bear all the recommendation which we offer of it.

March 20.—Official information will go out in tc-morrow's Pacific mail of tlie rati* ficntion of the new treaties witb the Indians in Oregon and Washington. As thia took place during the late extraordinary session ol the Senate, after Congress had adjourned, uo appropriation could be made to carry them into immediate effect. It was mainly owing to the explanations of Gen. Lane that these ireaties were ratified, that gentleman having convinced his brother Senators that tbey would tend to a permanent peace. He bad the effective support of Senator Gwin and Es- Govemor Stevens in his persevering * Iforts. By these treaties the title to fifty million acres f land will be extinguished at a cost to this Go eminent of 3£ cents per acre. Ou that occasion resolution was passed almost unanimously, pro- iuing tbat hereafter when it is proposed to buy Indian lauds, tbe Senate shall first be consulted before entering into treaty stipulations. Should it be found impracticable to make ar- langemeBta by which the mail service can be performed by meansofceriificat.es, and should it be decided between now and the 26th inst. to call an extra session of Congress, a telegraphic dispatch nu that day to New Orleans, could be forwarded ; stock on hand, to sppll St. L jS^ ~Z -A.

Bloody ruotOBd wore rife yesterday in eonuection with the sudden and violent death of the Hou. Mike Walsh. About 5 o'clock io the mornini-, the wartn but lifeless body of Mr. Walsh was found by Policeman Courtney ofthe Sixteenth Precinct, ly' ing at the foot of a steep iiigbt of s^onc steps loading to a basement, under tbe millinery store, No. 13S Eighth avenue. The Officer had passed that Wiiy balf an hour before, but did uot see any person there. The Bteps aie eight in number, and unusually steep. On the sides they are guarded by railings, but at tbe irout there is no rail nor guard, and as tbey cut into the sidewalk some what deeply, they are rather dang-.roua. Auy person who might happen to stumble near th could uot save himself from a fall of a! lea.sl ten feet. The bottom step is within eight iuihcs ot tbe door. It was upon this that the head ofthe deceased rested, face up. his body lying with his feet elevated toward the sircet. A small pool ol blood wliich had flowed from a slight scalp wound in the back of the besd, lay upou the lowest step. When we state tbat Mr. Walsh had been out until a late hour in the morning, indulging rather freely, and that when his friend Mr. Geo. Wilkes and he left the Hone House, at 2 a.m.. with tbe avowed intention of going home forthwith, he was quite under the influence of liquor, it would strike one as most probable that while staggering homeward, he bad stumbled, aod fallen down tbe cellar way, where he was found, and died there of congestion. This would appear to be the most probable theory, aud it is sustained by the medical tee- timony. Doubtless the Ial] stnuned him, if it did not produce concussion ofthe brain, leaving him helpless; and being a man of lull habit, a noted boil vivant, and at the time ofthe fall quite tipsy —from tbe position iu whieL he lay, head down, ward, it would not strain the imagination to suppose that under such circumstances he died of congestion of the brain. But the body ie found stripped of its valuables- A costly gold watch, the gift of (he widow ol Geo. Steers a heavy gold chain, the diamond ring worn n the lelt hand, and all the money, aav? a few coppers in the pockeis, are missing. What Ghoul has stripped tbe dead? Were thet-fl article") sfolen before or after death ? Was the helpless inebriate hurled down the abyss by some ruffian hand for plunder ? These are questions which gag _■".-: themselves very unpleasantly, and throw a vail of mystery over the melancholy aflair, that !a cer tainlyjperplexing as well aa painful. Joseph Tlocb bar, wbo left him in his cups at the Hone House, at 2 o'clock in tbe morning, says he often asked Walsh if he was not afraid to go home po lat while under the influence ul liquors. He repllei From tho Snnilivkh Inlnndi. The eruption nf Mamm Loa still continued", and had been visited by large numbers of persons, including many ladies. Iu grandeur and beauty, says the Advertiser, no eruption within the memory of men now living can compare with the present. It difiers from most previous ones in the fountain-like manner la which the lava is ejected from two hundred to five hundred feet. It in seldom that eruptions occur combining a great Uow ot lava with such a lofty spouting. That of 1852 is the only exception. The Oeatek of Ku.iNEA.—This crater, aa we learn from travelers, bas, since the present eruption began, been quite active, and is now an object well worth visiting. It is somewhat singular tbat the lava does not rise and overflow iu it while it is raised several thousand feet higher in the* central craters of Maun a Loa. lt would seem that Kilanea is but remotely connected with the shaft, that is uow sending out lava. Move Guano DiacovetieB. We noticed a low week ago, on lhe arrival of the U. S. Exploring Schooner Fennimore Cooper, that valuable guano deposits bad been discovered on French Frigate Reef, situated to the west northwest ofthese Islands. Wo learned also that the island has been formally taken possession ofia the name of the United States. Proposed Monument to Oapt> took. A movement has been made in Honolulu toward erecting a monument at Kcaiakeakua Lay, on the ipot where the great circumnavigator^ Capt. Cook, fell. The schooner J. D. Caw, from the Arctic re" gions, reports the total loss of the whaling bark Black Wariior, near Frenchman's Lagoon, about the 20th December. Only a very small portion of the cargo was saved ; officers and men safe. Iron Ill.'fgirif^. The brig Scotsman, from London, at Honolulu, is provided with wire standing-rigging.

Washington, March 1 h—The Postmaster Gene- 1's remains lay instate this morning in theeast room of the President's house, and crowds throng- id thither. The K-'rvicescoinmei.ced at noon. The luneral uddreiS was delivered by Rev. Mr. Gratiberry ot tbe Southern Methodist Church.— President, his Cabinet, and distinguished gentleman connected with all the branches of the Gov- rrent, the relatives of the deceased, aud others, were present, together with the Diplomatic Corps, who were in tuH Court dress. The procession was very long, being formed of iblic and private carnages. While the cortege is moving tbe bells were tolled aud minute guns ed. The pavements were lined with spectators. The corps was deposited in the Congressional cemetery, to be hereafter removed to Tennessee. Bx-Goveriior Bnshl-ird.

Officer Vosburgh, who was ou duty at the corner of Eighth avenue and Nineteenth street, less than' two blocks from where the body was found, fancied tbat be heard a cry of " watch--' about 4i o'clock: and ran up tbe avenue to discover the source whence it came ; but meeting a fellow officer who did not hear it, he thought it must have come Irom below, and, retracing his steps, Jisteued to hear if tbe cry was repeated. It was not. Tin re was a bail iu tbe neighborhood, and a greatjmaoy people were about at that time. What sortofpeo. pie were they, and did oua of them hurl poor Walsh down the steps, and. while he lay helpless- rob him ? Was that solitary cry of " Watch"' his dealh shriek " Or the haud over tbe heart raised to prevent the waich (rom being stolen from the vest pocket? These sre all questions which th public ask themselves, and which the coroner and his jury will do well lo inve^tagate. Kbep it BBFOHfi Tins Peoplk.-—That before Mr. Buchanan's election, tne New York Tribune de Olared that " as sure as there was a God in heaven'' if he were elected all our territories would bamade slave States ; and this infamously and designedly false and wicked declaration was echoed in substance by the whole Fremont | arty. Look at the result. Two years ot Mr. Buchanan's wise and judicious administration will have expired on the 4th of March. During this time two free States have been admitted in opposition to the host (worst) efforts of the Tribune pack Other territories are biding their time and maturing arrangements fbr a like welcome from the National Democracy, who, alone, ever have and ever will welcome and admit new sist, rs to our glorious confederacy, in spite ot the combined efforts of Nig- erism, Kuovvnothingism of whatever other detestable ism may spring up, to bang at a loathsome excrescence upon the Banner of the Union.—Montrose (Pa) Democrat. AAtt.w FtUtbUBtertag Seliemc. Ppiiaiiklpiua, March 19.—The New York Tri' bunc:s Washington correspondent says a new ii 1Li— battel ing expedition against Nicaraugna has been organizing for some lime, and Gen. Walkcr'tJ departure for Calilornia is directly connected with it, as the enterprise will start (rom the Pacific side.

Ileuningsen's emigration scheme, ostenai- simllaE purpose, with an understanding as to a future reudezvous and junction of forces. The net balance in the Treasuiy, according to lhe weekly statement, is seven millions, but a material portion of thia is derived from liie sale of tho recent, loan. A Sau Fact—The Staie Superintendent ol Public Instruction says: It is lamentably true thai during fhe past five years the State of California ba- paid $754,193 80 for tbe support of criminal.- aud but $284,183,G9 for the education of the young. In other "voRls. she has puid nearly three limes as much for the support of an average of 400 crimi. ualsasfor the training of 30.000 children. To make lhe point more forcible, the figures show lhat she has expended $1,855 on every criminal- and $9 on every child.

Her name i Mrs. Lovejoy, and her husband lives in Yivka.— When Mrs. Lovejoy started irom St. LoniS Bhe was quite unwell, but the trip has so improved her health lhat she says she never fell better in her life that now.

If he is, ns he is said to be, a Nicaraguan, he evidently exhibits Teutonic extraction. From the large number of letters he posts daily, the General and himself appear to carry on an extensive correspondence,—.Yational VebDICT in thk Oakland Inquest.—The following verdklt was rendered by the Coroners jury which sat in inquest upou the bodies of those who were killed by lhe explosion of the Contra Cosla's boiler and died in Oakland : "We find '.hat deceased came to their deaths from injuries received by the explosion of one of boilers of the steamboat Contra Cosla, on Sunday, tha 3d day ef April, A. D. 1851*. We also find that the explosion was occasioned by the rapid accumulation of steam., whilst working the engine slow, in crossing the bar at the mouth ofthe San Antonio creek, and which should have been re. licved by the engineer's raising the safely-valve.'' Celestials Off.—No less than 173 " children of the Sun" sailed for the '■ Flowery Empire" in the clipper ship, Fearless, yesterday.
