    General W. Walker.

    General wm. Walker, the Fillibuster, has addressed a letter to Gen. Cass Secretary of State, in which he says that “so far as any violation on his part of the acts of Congress is concerned he denies the charge with scorn and indignation, and will not so far forget his duty as an officer in Nicaragua as to violate the laws of the United States while enjoying hospitality within its limits.”

    Dispatches to the 12th instant, form New Orleans state that Walker had escaped from the city with 300 men, and that he would be joined by another party, who had embarked on the steamer Fashion, with provisions and munitions for war.
