Gen. Walker's Letter and the Transit Route.—Under date of the 18th, the Washington cor- respondent of the New York Times wr&es : The letter addressed by Gen. Walker to the President, in rela- tion to the position which he held in Nicaragua, and the conduct of Capt. Davis of the St. Mary's, in the forcible seizure of the schooner Granada, while sunder the Nicara- guan flag, and in Nicaraguan wa- ters, was delivered to the Presi- dent to-day. It appears that in Gen. Walker's -interview with the President, he made some remarks upon the im- proper interference of Capt. Davis as the cause of his return, and that the President requested him to re- duce the statement to writing. There was no conversation be- tween the President and Gen. Walker in relation to the affairs of the letter, except that Gen. Walker alluded to Capt. Davis' ■ acta and the President requested him to reduce his statement to writing. The letter itself was sent 'to vonbv mail. , ^ .. r Itmd^^^^lMfit is Gfen. Walker...

John Phoenix writes that he has invented an excellent method of driving the treadle of the new sew- ing machines, without the necessity of the lady's foot being constantly employed. He thus describes it: "Like most great inventions, the attachment is of great simplicity. An upright shaft is connected with the machine by a cog wheel and pinion, and suitable Irame work. Two projecting arms are attached to the shaft, to one of which a large cat is connected by alight harness, # and, from* the other a living, mouse * is suspended Hj^the,tail, within a few inches o££he nose of the motor. springs toward the mSnse' lthe latter is removed, and keeping constantly at the original distance, the machine revolves with great rapidity. The prodigious velocity produced by the rapacity of the cat in its futile endeavors to overtake the mouse, can only be imagined by one who has seen the attaciijneiit in full operation.
