Russia pays up. --During the Crimean war the Russian Government, through its agents, made a contract with Capt. Perkins, of Worcester, Mass., for a supply of powder, revolvers, and breach- loading rifles, to be smuggled into Russia by way of the German ports, in concealed cotton- bales and casks of rice. The scheme was discovered, and peace having been declared, the Russian broke the contract. Capt. Perkins laid his claim before the State Department and a diplomatic correspondence ensued, during which Attorney General Black sustained the claimant. --His agent, Mr. Stewart, it is said, went to St. Petersburg last summer, and that, with the aid of Mr. Appleton, our Minister at St. Petersburg, he has obtained $385,000.-- Washington Correspondent.
