Later from Havana.important movement at St. Domingo. New York, March 29.--The steamship Quaker City, from Havana, March 25th, arrived to-day. Much excitement existed there on the subject of the annexation of St. Domingo to Spain. It seems that a system of Spanish emigration has been going on to that Island, emigrants being instructed, when the proper time arrived, to hoist the Spanish flag and invoke the protection of Spain. This was done on the 16th, much to the astonishment of the blacks and natives. When the news reached Havana the frigate Blanca, fully armed with a large number of regular troops, was dispatched from the Island on the 23d, and two screw frigates will soon follow with 5,000 regulars. A large naval and military force of 10,000 is said to be on the way from Spain to Cuba. It is stated that Haiti will soon share the same fate as St. Domingo, with the consent of France. The steamer Mohawk arrived at Havana on Sunday. A million of dollar
From Washington. Washington, March 29.--During the late Executive session of the Senate about 400 nominations were confirmed, nearly fifty of which were sent in by the President yesterday. Gen. Wm. Kickey was elected Assistant Secretary of the Senate, and not Secretary, as stated. Asbury Dickens retains the latter position. The appropriation for building the seven steam sloops will not be available until after the 1st of July. The events in the South are occupying the Administration to-day. G. W. Lane, recently confirmed as Judge for Alabama, will, it is said, endeavor to hold his Court at Athens. The receipts into the Treasury last week were about $600,000. The nett balance on hand was upwards of a million and a half dollars.
