The Intelligencer advocates the passage of the bill to authorise the oonstruotion of the proposed seven new steam si oops-of-war, and earnestly deprecate* a veto of the spoliation bill, repeating, in cogent language, many of the well known arguments against the exer cise of the veto power, and in favor of the measure in question. The LTmion argues that Senator Seward owes his re election to Know Nothingiam, holding that it came into play just in the nick of time, and under circumstances which made it the most convenient stepping-stone for that talented and sagacious statesman's purposes PKKN0NAL. ....

George, (isn't that a queer cotnbioatioQ of names') and Kti?l Durkee, that he has received the American nomination fjr Governor of New Hampshire has written a letter accepting the nomination! .... The editor ot the Baltimore Patriot who or several days, lately, flourished about Washington, commences an editorial in his paper ot yesterday, in this wise : " A few days since we beheld Mr. Cooper Senator from the great iron State, reading a manuscript speech to some eight or ten mem bers. including the Speaker, whose legs were cross*i with great resignation, whilst his eves were hxed in the direction of the orator with that apparent attention and real abstrac tion which tne presiding officer of a delib erative body must require to avoid going deranged with the infinite eonfusion of ab surdities cf which his brains wound be made the receptacle ^enator Cooper, a Democratic adherent of a Free lrade President, was oppo3ing a pro Swilion to admit rai;road iron free of duty ' low very strange that the party which pn. tends to unity of political sentiment, should tolerate such inconsistency." This is certainly new* at Washington, and shows the writer, who lived some time here to ba a Know Nothing to the manor-bora benator Cooper is not only a clever fellow but also one of the stauncaest Whigs we know Ne "kinier" *ue*s the Patriot will take the back track whon it editor finds out he has been pitching into a good Whig. It is strange how party throws caud into the eyes of some editors. ....The Newbcryport Herald reports the death of Orlando I> Merrill, Esq , of that city, at the advs need age of ?2 juri.

WAJIH8T0I HEW8 AID GOMIF. The Smithsonian Institution ?A writer In the Boston Pott, from this ci^y, eonunintiog on the affair a of this establishment, says : ''But sundry misstatements, contained in a paragraph ft th# Washington Star, though prompt]j retracted by the editor as soon as their falsity was proved, were given to him for insertion bj Mr. Jewe.t, and illustrate the danger ef relying upon any authority' from | that quarter/' Now, we have to cay that this paragraph from the Pott embraces several errors, some of which do injustice to Mr. Jewett. Thus, one of the statements in the Star, originally re ferred to, was that the Institution's advertise ments was withdrawn from our journal. This was oi-r own, end was retracted on the mo ment we ascertained that the non-appearance of the advertisements referred to in our col umns, resulted from the mistske of one of our employees, rather than an order from the In stitution. Next, that information of the leotureof Marm Willard, of Troy, delivered in the Institution's hfll, was not communicated to us by Mr. | Jewett, it being a fact known to all in Wash ington, which we simply brought back to the mind of the public. This was explained away, by our subsequent publication of the addition al fact, communicated to us by an officer of the Institution, that the old lady was invited to lecture there by a Female Teachers' Asso ciation, to whom Professor Henry had tendeied the use of the hall?not by himself. And, lastly, we have to eay of this matter, that the information concerning the appear ance on their book table, of the religieus pe riodical with the article adverse to the present management of the Institution cut out, and relative to the alleged faet that Professor Henry had caused such periodicals as had oon. tained articles reflecting on his management of the Institute's affairs to be stricken from the list of those to which they subscribe, did come from Professor Jewett to us. The first of these last mentioned matters was explained to have occurred only by mistake, and the last allegation was flatly denied We make this explanation fer the sake of truth, and for the benefit of all concerned. A. C. Dodge?Some of the enemies of the I resident, at a distance, who control newspa pers, seem to take the selection of (ien .I>odge, of Iowa, for American Minister to Spain, in high dudgeon. Aasording to their newspaper criticisms of his appointment, he is too empha tic a specimen of an American, to suit their fancy. They are, for the most parr, these who have so long been crying out against the selection of Messrs S^ule, Owen, and Belmont, because they were nit native born Americans. It seen s they are hard to please?blowing hot or cold from the same mouth as may appear most likely to justify them in getting up objections to the President's appointments. Their caveat against Gen. Dodge is, that he is so thorough a specimen of an American West ern public man. They do not dream of al leging that he wants either mind, oharacter, ex perience in public affairs, energy, industry, or any other real requisite qualification for the du ties he is to be called on to perform at Madrid. He is a rough back woodsman say they, who speaks only the language of his own country. The latter part of the allegation may be true But it is notorious that there is not at this time in public life here, a gentleman of more dignity and urbanity of address to all with whom he has oocasion to hold intercourse, than General Dodge; all are easy in his society, and he deports himself in all respects as a gsntle man should, who has long been habituated to constant familiar intercourse with persons ac customed to all the refinements of life in offi cial society in this Metropolis, wherein such society is as refined as anywhere else in the world. We are free to confess that nothing gives us greater pleasure than the fact that so perfect a specimen of the address of a Western American gentleman, is hereafter to be found representing this Government at an European Court. The example will have a happy ten dency indeed, going far to counteract the in fluence of the presence in Europe of the pro fessional snobs who, hailing originally from the United States, now make the continent their home, and in claiming identity with their original country, disgrace it by the obsequous ness they display in apeing the thoughts pre judices, vices, and follies of the worst class of the aristocracy of the Old World. French Spoliation ?On the day before yesterday those around us interested in these claims were in high glee, having managed somehow or other to persuade themselves that the President designed signing the bill. It was said that many members who had voted against it, under some benign influence or other had hastented to petition him to make it a law, notwithstanding their recent position on the question. \ esterday morning, however, the fever of those first above referred to abated, and by evening a chill, a cold chill, had set in upon them It evidently continues to-day, as though they are now satisfied that their hopes had led their judgment astray. Commodore Ferry ?The House yesterday ordered 10.000 copies of the report of this gal lant officer, of the result and partienlars of his expedition to Japan, to be printed, the binding to be in the elegant style of the report of Lieutenant Herndon y> e hear that a joint resolution will very shortly be brought forward, tendering to Com. Perry the thanks of Congress, for the essen tial services he has rendered his country while upon the Japan expedition. We take it for granted that there will hardly be a vote against it; inasmuch as all agree that he not only managed the delicate aud important trust confided to him, with great judgment and fidelity, but that the result of his some what (for a nava! officer) novel labors cannot fail to be the speedy generation of an entirely new commerce of great importanoe, indeed, to the business interests of the United States. H H Eobinson, Esq.?The difficulty which is said to exist in the Senate over the confirma tion of H. H. Robinson, Esq., editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer, to be L. S. Marshal for the new Southern District of Ohio, we take to be no difficulty at all. The rumor to the oon trary which has been floating around Wash ington for some days past, is simple the crea tion of the wonder-mongers, in devising reasons to account for the failure of the Senate to dis pose of every thing before them immediately and at the same time, as it were. ^Ihere oan be no possible reason why the *? "fcmlil .katkoim 4^1? nomination in 4 leati jq ; and we therefore feel sure that by the usual time which the oenfirming body re quire to carry a nomination of the kind through their forms, Mr R. will be duly confirmed without opposition. He is a man of talent', energy and character, and has long been a lMding wd aetive man in the affair* of hia politioal party in his State Jm A Serious Charge -The Pari, oorrespon dent of the New York Tribune sajs :? _tTK* Fr*ncl1 Government, for instance, has i ' >J? it* possession oopies of the iw? r 7 Pr?#u??fi<>n of Ledru Kollin, Iff!? oalls on the poo PI* of Tranoe to arise and asnseinate the ^a.?!?*i'rb?vrlnf on th#ir ****** ?? Sni ??P th* Amerioan Legation at Lon ?i? w 7 w***d?teoted in circulation among V0*19 lld 11 *" bJ means of the U,*ni by offioi&1 Mai of the Lnited States that they gained admission into Franoe and passed into circulation. Copies _ Ul**? documents are at this moment at the Department of 8tate in Washington, haying been sent by the French Qorernment to M. ~?geS; with a demand for explanations. The explanation is simple: either Mr Siokles hM lent to Mr. Sanders the seal of the Lega ir'Vw 1*itr?**nUeman hM ??n#into office of Mr Miller, (the United States Dis patch Agent at London, and an Englishman without sympathy for the United States,) and has served himself with the seal of the Lega tion,^ which the Dispatch Office requires for sealing up and forwarding dispatches. Is this an honest means of propagandism or not ? This story has been current in foreign dip lomatic oiroles in Washington for months pest, wherein it it also said that it has, as a matter of coarse, given the Government here no little annoyance. The Aecounts of the Purser of the Bait bridga.?It turns out that there is some trouble in the accounting branch of the service about the accounts of Purser Looker, who has just returned heme in the Bainbridge. It seems, that under peremptory orders in writing from the commander of hi* ship, Lieut Charles G. Hunter, he paid to that offner s<me $4,000 more than his pay, Ac., came to on the cruise The purser alleges, we hear, that he only made the payments in question under formal and peremptory written orders from Lieut. Hunter* his immediate commander, who had authority | to put him in irons on his refusal so to do. The question at issue is, whether a purser is' or is not to be held responsible for money paid I out under such circumstances?there being manifestly no right on the part of his com mander to demand a dollar more of the public money from his purser than the amount of his pay and allowances, which was well known to the chip's financial agent. Captain Rynders.?The story that Captain Rynders designs visiting Virginia to electioneer for Mr. Wise, turns out to have he^n manufac j tured of whole cloth, no such idea having en> terod his head It was probably concocted to turn the attention of the good people of the old Dominion from the iuterferenco of others? not citizens of that Commonwealth?in the current canvass agaiust Mr. Wise. Kynders is a shrewd man, and rarely injures the cause of his friends. He knows too much ot the tem i per of Virginia in such matters, to have ever dreamed of meddling, directly, or indirectly with her local politios. 1 The Pennsylvania Senatorial Election ? We have private advioes from Harrisburg which satisfy us that Lewis C. Levin, so well known around Washington, is the real candi. date of the anti-Cameron wing of the Know Nothing party in the Legislature there. He and his friends are exerting themselves at a great rate, in the hope of inducing the major ''7 ot tke Know Nothings to compromise on him, (Mr. Levin,) throwing both Mr. Cam eron and "Mr. Soattering" overboard. The party is divided?42 for Cameron, and 37 nomi nally for "Mr. Scattering." The Protection of Hew Orleans ?The con stituents of the Hon Mr. Hunt, of Louisiana, owe him gratitude fer his management, yes terday, of the bill appropriating $125,000 for the erection of suitable works of defence at Prootor's Landing, about twenty-eight miles from New Orleans. He pushed through bis measure in capital style, and in the shortest possible space of time. The Current Operations of the Treasury Department.?On yesterday, the 14th of Feb., thore were of Treasury Warrants entered on | the books of the Department?

In the lenate. to day, the emigrant passen ger bill was taken up on motion of Mr. Sew ard. The bill limits the number of passengers to one to eaoh twelve tons of the snip's bur den. Mr. Benjamin opposed the bill in a few re marks, when it was laid aside for the time being. Mr. Houston, rising to a personal explana tion, addressed the Senate at some length in exposure of the misstatements in a pamphlet by Thomas Jefferson Oreen, personally abusive of himself, (Mr. H ) Mr. H. was exceedingly severe in his re marks upon the character, standing, and his tory of the authof of the publication in ques tion. The bill to increase the salaries of the judges of the Supreme Court was then taken up and passed ' In the House, they went into a Committee of the Whcle on the state of the Union, Mr. Edgerton in the chair. Immediately after the reading of the journal, all the bills on the oalendar standing before the mail steamer appropriation bill, were severally laid aside by votes of the Committee, which having re* fused to dispose of that measure? Mr. Olds proposed to amend the first seetion of the said bill, which proposed to give the "notice" to the Collins' line of the tormina. n ot the additional compensation,* and then addreased the eommittee at length in opposition to giving the notioe. ?1 ? r* ? ???James Uussel Lowel, the poet, has been elected Professor of Modern languages and Belles Lettree in Harvard College, in place of Professor Longfellow He was not an appli. cant, the compliment is, therefore, enhanoed.
