The President, having received infor
mation that citizens of the United States
were preparing to join Walker and par
ticipate in military operations within
the State of .Nicaragua, has issued a
; proclamation warning all persons from

thority of the law.

Suicide of Lieut. Archibald McRae.
The San Francisco Alto California
gives the following' melancholy details
of the death of Lt. MoRae, son of Gen.
Alex. McRae, late President of the
Wilmington and Weldon Kail Road.
Lieut. Archibald . McRea, of the U.
States revenue cutter Ewini came to
his death on aturd:iy evening, Nov. 17,
by his own act on board his vessel, now
lyiug iu this harbor Lieut. MoRea had
for some time exhibite i symptoms ot
partial derangement, and these had be
come so alarming on Saturday evening,
that the clerk of the Ewinwas in lu-
ccd to send on board the U. S. steamer
Vctive, requesting tho presence of tho
officers of that vessel. Two of the offi
cers of the c!ive immediately went on
board the Ewiug, and bad au interview
with Capt. Mi Ilea in his cabin, and
passed nearly two hours in social con
versation. Observing nothing remark i
ble in his languago or behavior, they
bade him good night, and started to re
turn to their vessel, but they had scar
cely reached the deck when they heard
the report of& pistol. Upon returning
to the cabiu they found Capt. McReu
lying upon the floor in a dying state.
He had discharged a pistol iato his
head, the ball entering just below th
right temple, and producing deaeh in a
very f w minutes.
The will of the deceased, which was
executed by him but a few hours before
his death, bears the proof of the diseas
ed state of hi.s mind. After -devising
his property equally between his rela
tives, he directed that his body be drop
pecl in the ocean, out side the Heads, at
ebb tide. Corouer Kt-ut hell an in
quest upoa the body yesterday alter
noon, when a verdict was delivered in
accord-moo with these facts. Deceased
was 35 years of age.

Import ant from Kansas.
Chicago, Dec 12. Mr. Parson?,"of
Massachusetts, furnishes the Tribune of
this city with some information as to the
condition of aifairs in Kansas on 3rd
instant when he left. He states that
there are 700 men in Lawrence under
arms, and upwards of 800 Mis30urians
at Wankena Creek, seven miles distaut,
with rifles and cannon. Mr. Parsons
met also a company, of Missourians on
the 4th instant, just over the border
with arms, baggage andvwagon stores.
On the Gth, , he saw another squad of
Missourians with three pieces of artillery,
stolen from the Clay County Arsenal.
The squad was talking Violently, and
avowing they would burn L iwreuce, and

' Walkers Plans in Central America.
Apian has already been started for
the revival of the old Central America
Confederation, which is likely to be suc
cessful. Honduras and San Salvador
have, oh the invitation pf Gen. Walker,
sent commissioners to Nicaragua, invi
ting propositions to that effect, and
Walker has accepted them. This invj
tation is to be extended to Costa Rica
and Gautemala, and unless they accept
it tho forces of the three other combin
ed states, ii is said, will be used to com
pel thm. It is to be regarded a an act
of hostility, if they refuse. Walker's
plans already extend to all Central A
inerica. Wilmington Her.
How Swindlers are Punished in Eng
land. Sir John D. Paul and his partners,
Messrs. Strahan and Rataa, who were
for many years le ultng London bankers,
failed some time since and disclosed th at
ther had, when pressed for money, dis
posed of seeurit is placed in their hands
on deposit, and applied tho money to
their own necessities. They were ar
rested and tried for the offence, and wo
learn by return m iil that tho sentence
pronounced upon them is fourteen years
transportation. Sir John D Paul was
a baronet, a magistrate, a leading mem
ber of the Chuvch, ami several. religious
:ind charitable societies; his connections,
as well as those of his n irtners, wer
highly respectable and influential.
Yet they have been sentenced to the
same punishment as would hive boon
allolte 1 to thorn if they had been the
lowest criiniuals. There is a lesson
in the sentence by which we uny profit.
Such swindle as that of Strahan, Paul
& Bates have not been uuknown iu th;s
country. Rut we av not aware that
any Wall street operator w;is ever sen
tenced to fourteen years irnpr'sontnent.
