The Government has notified President MARTI-NEZ that the Yrissari Treaty will be insisted upon, notwithstanding his refusal to sign the ratification, and that the transit will be protected by the Army and Navy, if necessary.
It is believed that BELLY has bribed MARTINEZ by order of his Government. MARCO OTTEE is living in Paris, on the best relations with Louis NAPOLEON.
The Senate's abolition of the franking privilege, and raising the postage to five cents, arouses strong resistance in the House. Many members threaten to break up the whole system, and resort to private ex-presses.
The feeling in favor of Senator GWIN'S resolution empowering the President to produce a settlement of the American claims against the Central American States, and Mexico, has lately received a new and strong impulse from the Anti-Fillibuster interest, who hold the measure as a prelude to the acquisition of So-nora in a perfectly legal way. Spain and Peru ought to be included. An attempt will be made to pass the resolutions, which are approved by some of the Re-publicans, as well as by the Administration men.
The Indian Department is in the daily receipt of letters concerning the hostile spirit among the North-western Indians. The Department will send out Agents, and make every effort to prevent war.
The friends of the House Printer, STEEDMAN, say he has gone home to make arrangements for running for Congress in MOTT'S district, where he has dis-posed of Federal patronage with a view to the nomi-nation. Intense interest, for well-known reasons, is felt here with reference to his return to this City.
Great responsibility and power is thrown on the Conference Committees by the numerous disagree-ments of the two Houses, and they are accordingly besieged with lobbyites.
The Senate Committee on Commerce are looking over the testimony in the Willett's investigation, in order to determine whether Collector SCHELL knew that his brother and friends were interested in the sale when he made the report to the War Depart-ment. If they conclude he did, they will probably report adversely to his confirmation.
The Hargous party have agreed, in a contract with the Postmaster-General, to carry the mails over the Tehuantepec route, to begin the service in October next—which the Sloo party declare impossible for them to do, since they have not possession of the route, and SLOO will probably resist by legal means any attempt to take it.
The Utah news communicated to Congress this evening, produced a profound sensation. The allu-sion in the president's communication to economy was received by the House with loud laughter. There is some talk this evening of ordering a Com-mittee of Investgation on the conduct of the Utah Campaign.
The House red COLLINS to day, and re-jected the Senate amendments to the Ocean Mail Transportation bill, by one hundred and forty to two—Messrs. CLAY and FAULKNER.
A very large number of appointments were sent to the Senate to-day. O.
[FROM THE REPORTER FOR THE ASSOCIATED PRESS.]
WASHINGTON, Thursday, June 10.
Official information has been received from Gov-ernor CUMMING of his arrival at Salt Lake City, and favorable reception there. BRIGHAM YOUNG formally delivered to him all authority, and conselled the peo-ple to obedience. There was not the slightest de-monstration of hostility. BRIGHAM and the prominent Mormons were to have left Salt Lake on Tuesday last. The various Mormon settlements were broken up, and the inhabitants were moving South, for or in the direction of Sonora. The scene is represented to have been most distressing and mournful, as the men women and children, poorly clad and illy provided for, uncomplainingly took their departure from the territory.
The President's brief Message announcing the events in Utah, came rather unexpectedly on the House to-day. Its reading was several times inter-rupted by laughter. When the Clerk finished, ex- pressions rose from various parts of the Hall, "So ihe Mormon war is ended ?" "Millions are saved to the Treasury," "I'm glad of it," &c., &c. The in-defatigable Chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means wanted to go into Committee of the Whole, but the House had glory enough for one day and joy-fully adjourned.
The Postmaster-General has signed a contract with the Louisiana and Tehuantepec Company for the conveyance of the mails to California, with the priv-ilege of delivering them and passengers to the Pana-ma Line at or near Acapulco, or at Ventoso Bay.
If they are delivered at Ventoso Bay $250,000, and if at Acapulco, $286,000 per annum, is to be paid. The contract is for one year, commencing on the 1st of October, so that this and the one from New-York to Aspinwall shall expire at the same time. The contract provides that if there is no service there shall be no pay. This line, with the late arrange-ment for carrying the mails from New-York to New-Orleans in three days and ten hours will shorten the trip from New-York to San Francisco eight or ten days. The Great Mississippi and Columbus, Ken-tucky Railroad arrangements to New-Orleans confer on the latter extraordinary advantages.
The Philadelphia Ledger of to-day, has allowed its partizan zeal in support of the Morse Telegraph Patent and its lobby friends, to falsify the correct re-port of the Senate's proceedings yesterday, and also most grossly misrepresented the spirit and letter of Mr. BAYARD'S report upon the several telegraph me-morials. TheJudiciarv Committee, so for from re-commending the repeal of the Telegraph act, as it has been falsely stated by the Ledger and other or-gans of KENDALL'S lobby, expressly discountenanced this idea, and state that in the opinion of the Com-mittee, "no further legislation is necessary." The report then proceeds to refer to the communication of the Secretary of State to PETER COOPER, dated April, 1857, which defines the terms on which the De-partment is prepared to contract with the Atlantic Company, and adds :
"No contract, however, has been concluded with any person, association or corporation, and from the said communication to PETER COOPER, it appears that none will be until after a similar contract has been entered into with Great Britain." The Committee's report then says :
“There is also yet to be ascertained, the material fact as to which of the two corporations—the Atlantic or Newfoundland—has authority to make the con-tract so as to insure the use of the Atlantic Cable to the United States, in accordance with the act of March, 1857, and also whether the concurrence of both companies will not be required."
The report thus ends :
"Should the Secretary of State be unable to effect a contract in accordance with the Legislative intent, further legislation may become necessary when that fact is communicated to Congress."
