SPIRIT OF THS MORHIHe FKESS The I'moh replies to the communication in yesterday morning's Intelligencer, alleging that that journal end the Nebraska Democrats of the Legislature are, for the most part, re sponsible for the defeat of (General Shields. According to the Union, the pubHcatfon in question involves an attack on Senator Don glm and his friends on the part of the friend of General Shields The editor warmly de nies that his coarse towards General S ha* been other thin the' of a sincere friend We apprehend that this denial is hardly neces sary. imsmuch as though the Union perhaps made a mistake in failing to urge the Qeaer al's re-election at the right timu, it it well known to all in Waihingtou that h% had no more sincere advocate* than those in the Union office The InttUrtftrtcer in nothing the mistake w.th reference to the veto, made in the Star ye?terday, again lake* occasion to make ar -organ" of the Star We beg leave to say to our rospected neighbor, that the term isoffen sive when applied to os by the Intriligvnrer, as its conductors know well that the onlj organ-hip f-rtrly attributable to the St >r. results f. om our perseverance, industry and greater crtauce in caterirg to obtain Wash ington re*s for the Star's readers.

Protection to the Frontier ?It is not to be doubted ?hat, in the next ten yurt, the pro tection of the overland emigration to the Pa oifio ride will cost the Nations! TreeiUry ten times il much, if essayed by military mean only, as if the plan of Senator <i win for the establishment of a weekly elprcM be carried out. The troops utalwli will be required to prevent the molestation of the emigrants pass lag over that route, cannot cost, year by year, less than a million of dollars per annum, il the line is left without frequent settlements sleng it. In ope year after the proposed ox. press commences to rub over it, hardly a Gov eminent soldier will be required there. Under miliUry supervision lone, the line will be safe only where the military may happen to be present. So, unless military posts are kept up well nigh within a day's ride of eaoh other? whioh would cost millions On millions annual* ly?troops only, will atfurd but a semblance of the relief necessary If ten thousand erni grants go over tbe tottte during the next spring, but few wore will pass over it in the season next following, under the ordinary military protection, which, owing to the manner in which Congress accords such protection, is notoriously insufficient to the end proposed. With the settlements along the route oontem plated in Sonator Qwin's bill, the emigration must increase enormously every year, until, in three or four years, it will be so great that there will be no need whatever for the pros ence of a single United States soldier on or about the route. Xheee facts are all self evi dent axioms, and demonstrate to our mind: with great force, the prime importance of making the bill of Senator Gwin, above al luded to, a law ere the end ot the session.

The Lieutenant General Bill ?It was raid yesterday in the Capitol, that, by reference to an old law, the bill conferring on General Soott the title and rank of Lieutenant General alto confers on him the privilege of creating four additional lieutenant oolonels in the Uni ted States army, to be his aids, and four mili tary secretaries. This being the general im pression there, and it beigg well known that there eould not be a particle of duty of any kind whatever devolved on the proposed Lieu tenant General as such, or on any such addi tional officers in the army, it was thought that the President, in order to give Congress an opportuui'y to oorrect what they were sup posed to have done by mistake in enaoting this bill, would veto it. Simon Cameron on f lavery ? It is asserted by gentlemen now in Washington, and who defy contradiction, that Hon. Simon Cameron has written a letter, in which he pledges him self, if elected te the United States Senate, to vite against the admission of any more slave States into the Union, to abolish slavery in the Distriot of Columbia, to repeal the fugitive slave law, and to extend the term of naturali sation to twenty one years. It is said that the letter is to be published at once in the Penn sylvania papers. Our Foot in it!?In the absenoe yesterday of the senior editor of the Star, (who makes up its Washington news columos,) a friend, just before we went to prois, brought to the offioe what he erroneously believed to be pos itive intelligence that a veto of the spoliation bill had been transmitted to Congress. This accounts for our publication of that inoorrect news item in a portion of our edition of yester day. Its true character was, however, disoov sred in time to enable us to work off most of the Stars of that day with the paragraph ex punged. For the Mediterranean Squadron.?The barque Toung Turk has been ohartered by the Government to transport naval stores from Boston to Spessia, for the use of our squadron in the Mediterranean. She will be ready for wa as early as the 14th inst Those desiring to send letters by them should send them [post paid) to the care of " the Naval Insti tute at the Navy Yard, Boston, Mass." The Hew Picture ?Powell's celebrated pic- j lure of "Do Soto discovering the Mississippi," iras uncovered in its place in the rotnndo of the Capitol, to day, for the first time, and up to this time has attracted a orowd of wander ng admirers. We saw among them the dele gation of the Winnebagoes, who reached Wash ngton on the night before last. They were in til feather, of course, and were lions in tbe Capitol all the morning. The Current Operations of the Treasury Department ?On yesterday, the 15th of Feb.,J here were of Treasury Warranto entered on Ae books of the Department? for paying Treasury debts $10 00 Ifor the Customs ? 2,221 85 For oo veringinto the Treasury from miscellaneous sources 444 96 For the Navy Department 3,775 73 For the Inteiior Department.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we #enl to press, the Indian appropriation hill Wu duly passed. T&4 Pacifie Railroad b0I was then taken np, and Mr. Qwin addiessea the Senate in favor | of a substitute for it, which he presented, and which waa adopted. The question then being on agreainf to the amended bill? Mr. dbwaid spoke at length in favor of a railroad to the Paoillo, and Mesne. Geyer, Chase, and Maton against it. The Senate adjourned without taking the final question on the bill. In the Hottia. the question of giving the proposed notioe of the termination of the sap* plemental contract to the proprietors of the Collins line, was debated in Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, ^Mr. Edger ton in the ohair,) the ooean mail steamer oill being ander consideration The giving of the notioe was advooated by Messrs. Smith of Va. and Letober, and opposed by Messrs. Olds, Walbridge, and Cutting, ere the committee rose and the House adjourned. Proceedings mf To Day. In the Senate, the bill for the relief of the captors of the private armed brig Qen. Arm strong was taken up, by a vote of 33 yeas to 22 nays; when it waa shortly afterwards again laid on the table by a vote of 24 to 23 The bill for the relief of Capt. Vorhiea, U S Navy, making compensation for carrying out -O their respective destinations, an Ameri can Commissioner to the Sandwieh Islands and another to the East Indies, was next taken up and debated by Messrs Mallory and Tou [ cey for it, and Clay and Slidell against it, ere we went to press la the House, on motion of Mr. Benton, by leave, the Senate bill providing for an ad ditional term of the cireuitoourt of the United States for the District of Missouri was taken op and passed. The House then proceeded to oonaider Mr Cutting's pending resolution to close the gen eral debate on the ooean mnl steamer appro priation bill in two hours after it should again be taken up in the Committee of the Whole j on the state of the Union. On motion of Mr Haven this resolution was amended by striking out 11 two hours," and inserting in lien thereof " one hour;" agreed to?yeas 107, nays 56. PROM ORKOON. Win tar in Oregon A Portland paper of December 23, says : u We have had copious showers of rsin for the past week, raising the Willamette several feet, in consequence of whioh steamers are enabled to run on the Upper Wallamette." A Family Butchered by their Father. The Oregonian contains an account of a horrible murder having been committed by a man named Burris, a foreigner. His family oonsisted of bis wife and four children, whom he brutally murdered, and then set Are to the house, oonsuming their todies. That paper gives the following particulars : " Burris has lived for several years in North Luality Plains, hu been ?irj intemperate, and lately has been oansiderod partially in i ?ana. When drinking he has bean considered a dangerous person, and some of the neigh bors had remained at his house on several oc ? | cations, even up to the night of the murder. Burris, after his arrest, staged that he had killed his wife and children, four in number, to send them to Heaven ; that he had been directed to do so by the Devil, and that he was going to be hung at Hillsborough, and go to hell Since his arrest he has attempted to dettroy himself, but failed to accomplish it." Highly Important!?Rumored Organisation of a Filliboataring Expedition against Van* couver's Island. A correspondent writing from Sohlalam, W. IT, says: ''The most interesting news I can give you is that a filibustering expedition against Vancouver's Island is on foot in this section, and Dame Rumor says that the Rus sian Government has agents among us actu ally engsged la getting up a party for that purpose. Their movements are characterised with the utmost decree of oaution and secrecy, yet enough baa leaked out to warrant the be lief that the party baa already considerable strength, and is gaining ground rapidly. Our people bear the English nabobs of Vancouver's Island no good will, and nothing would give them more pleasure than to oust them from possessions which of right belong to us, and whioh will be a source of trouble, annoyanoe, and danger to us as long as held by British authorities. If it is to oome, let it come?I'm in for one It is also said that certain parties from Oregon are taking an aotive part in the movement."?San Francisco Herald. FROM WA8HMGrOH TERRITORY. We have news from Oiympia, on Puget Sound, to Jan. 2d. Working of the Coal Mines. Energetic measures are about to be adopted to develope the valuable ooal mines on the Sound. Of the progress of the Territory a corres pondent writes : '? Our farmers, after gather ing a bountiful harvest, are busily engaged in putting in a much larger orop than former-' ly, and although Washington is reported to be a sterile oountry. yet she will in a few years, produce an astonishing turpi us. It is true we feel somewhat the pressure of hard times; still there is a degree of activity, bustle and enterprise among (he people here not found in any part of Oregon. Iowa Ssnator?It it pretty generally con. j ceded by the papers of Iowa, and by the lead ing men of both parties, including Governor Grimes and Chief Justice Wright, that the election of Mr. Harlan as Senator from that | State is utterly void. The Dubuque Express informs us that Senator Badger, one of the ablest Whig jurists in the United States, has Siven a written opinion that the election was legal and of no binding foroe. Many other members of Congress of both parties, unite in this opinion. The constitution of Iowa re quires that in all joint meetings of the legis lature, a majority of each house shall be ne oessary to a quorum. But fourteen of the thirty-one Senators were present, and one or more Whigs refused to be parties to the fraud. The fusion legislature had better repudiate the whole thing, and try to get up a new eleo lion. If they do not, the democracy will set the whole thing right two years hence.?Chic. Tribum*. About fifty Americ ins who had been| seduced from A istralla to Peru by big gold storiea, finding themsalvea " hard up," aided with Castilla against Eehineque, and it ia said, wore the main oause of the groat viotory achieved by the former on the 5tfi~of January, when Caa'illa and hia army entered Lima 41 with acelamationa of the Peruvian world."
