H. HOPE. Washington, March 24, 1855. SPIRIT OP THE MOUSING PRESS. The Union, arguing the El Dorado question with the Intelligencer insists that firing a {?hot over the bow of the ship when more than a marino league from the shore was an asser tion of the right of starch, against whieh our statesmen havt so long made opposition, and says in Vae course of its remarks: -The instant before the Spanish frigate fired the firit shot the two vessels bore to caeh oth er the relations of perfect equality?each was under the jurisdiction of its own government? each had a perfect right to its position, and was in the lawful enjoyment of rights on the seas which were in all respects equal Thus situated, within cannon shot the Spanish ves sel throwo a ball ovor the bow of the Ameri can steamer?the language of the significant messenger thus sent was' stand'1?stop your engine, and proceed no further until you hare permission from me; the character of the messenger shows the danger of disobedience ?stand still?submit to be boarded and have your papers examined, and your right to pro ceel dotermii ed by my judgment. " Ihij is the language of command; it is the assertion of Buperiorty ef rights; it is the fi'it of one having authority to issue it and the right and the power to exact obedience. It is the language of a superior to a subordinate. It is the assertion, in tho most offensive and menacing manner, of " the right of search" as understood by American statesmen, or "the right of visitation" as understood and claimed by British statesmen. It is not to be regard ei as the individual act of the Spanish officer; the message and the command are not to be understood as directed to the American cap tain merely; it is the Jiat of Spain to the I nited States; it is the command &iven by one sovereign nation to another; it is the assertion of a right wholly inconsistent with the equality which existed between them when the com mand was given; it was, therefore, necessarily an aggression upon the jurisdiction of the United States, and an insult to the flag which proclaimed and guarantied that jurisdiction/' The Union also announces the arreet of a Mr rhoiupeon, I nited States vioe consul at the port of Sagun le Granda, in the island of Cuba lie is an American, acting as consular agent there. Ilis offance, as stated in the Union, was in having up the United States coat-of arms at his office, pot up there by hii predecessor. The Union says of this event: " Occurring upon the heels of the El Dorado iusult, and involving a gro*s indignity to our national honor in tearing down our national %rms and arresting and imprisoning an Amer ican citiien. it shows how critical are our re iutions with the Spanish Government. Wi noe- not add that the subject will reoeiv< prompt attention irem our Government." The Sentinel also is indignant against Spaii on account of the El Dorado outrage The Intelligencer compliments the Judge of the District Court of the United States fo: this District, on the general correctness o their decisions, ss manifested in the manne in which their decisions, from whioh appeal are taXon. have been sustained by the Supremi Court of the I nited States?saying : During the last term of the Supreme Courl '-i the United States there were eight caset ol appeal f:om our Circuit Court argued and de cided. The whole eight ea?es. we understand were as fully and ably argued as any cases a the bar, and decided by as elaborate and well considered opinions as any others at the las term. Seven of these cases: decided by Judge Morsell and Dunlop, were affirmed in even particular; and only one point in the eight! caae, decided by those Judges and Judg trancb, was overruled?all the other points ii the case being affirmed. wouii not if we could add a word t< testimony so conclusive It will, we are in ormed. compare favorably with any other Court m the I nion." ? s m*m i msmxuTON news ahd gossip. Sending Mechanics' Work to be Ixecnted oat f the District of Columbia ?It will be recollected that, a few days since, we publish ed in our loeal columns the following extract from the Baltimore American, vis: ''Work for the Capitol ?It is gratifying to know the Baltimore artisans have a fame abroad a.* well as at home, and that their handicraft is sought, not because they will work at a lower price than other people, but became the workmanship is superior. It will be recollected that the late Congress appro priated a large sum of money for the Capitol extension, and among the items are those for iron demes for the new Senate and House chambers, and for a new dome to the rotunda. The work of making the iron castings for the Senate dome wss awarded to Messrs. Newaham ?% Co., of this city, and a large number of them are already completed at their feundery, on i remont street. The heavy castings for the frame work of the dome are as smooth as forged iron, while the joints fit together as if they were reduced to a square with the file or slotting machine The plan of the work is a new one It is intended if poeaible, to have the whole im provement completed before the next Congress and there is a large force employed in making the castings. ' ? On Monday, we followed it up with an arti cle designed to show the injustice to omr fel low citizens engaged in the mechanic arts in the Distriot of Columbia, involved in sending away orders for work which can as well be executed in Washington, Georgetown, or Alex andria. We are happy to be so soon able to state that there proves to be no foundation for the American's statement, which was, doubt less. penned under an entire misconception of the facts involved. Baltimore has received no contraot "beoause the wortmanskip it superior" to that of "other people The only oontraet made in Balti more is with Uayward A BarUett for an iron cening over a small oorridor in the seath wing, and that awarded to them beeause they offered to do it ax a (0*?r ^ than other f*ople Congress never appropriated money ?? for iron domes for the new Senate and House cnambers. " There are to be no domes there >uch appendages were never thought of, much less intended, mush less oontracted for. As to the Senate dome being awarded te Meaera Newaham M Co., of Baltimore?there is to b? oo Senate dc me, and the firm named have nothing to do wiv.b the work of the Cap itol if there is aueh a firm, tho faet appears to i>? unknown to those ^trusted with the "ork on the CapitoL "The heavy oMtiogs for the frame-work of the dome ere as smooth as forged iren," the Amenoan says If by this if meant the only dome that ia to be oomtracted?that over the rotunda?the details of the design are not jet made oat, and it will require months of hard study of the architect before the plans will he ready t% submit to eontraotors for their esti mates. If the word dome is ignoraatly used for exiling, even then there is no cortecteess in the statement. The iron eeiling of the Ball of Representative* is alone under contract, and that was awarded to Janes, Bee be & Co., of New York, the lowest bidders. The abore explanation was furnished to ns from the architect's office, and of course em b races facts that may be relied on. In the meanwhile we have fcgain to express the hope that those intrusted with the man agement of all the Government improvements at this point, will reoolleot that the business necessities of the Government have gradually collected here a large body of mechanics? master workmen, and journeymen?inferior to none others in the world in their respective callings. It is due to the Government's inter est that every reasonable effort should be made, in disposing of such work, to furnish them oonstant employment, if that can be done without injury to that (the Government's) in terest. We feel certain that it can be, and therefore do not hesitate to appeal to those superintending such jobs to send no work out of Washington, Georgetown, and Alexandria, that oan be as well and really as economically done in one or the other of the three sister cities, whose igftohanios have, for the most part, oome hither to supply the wants of the Government. Be Sure to Fay the Postage on Mailing your Letters.?Those who neglect so to do, after the last day in the present month, will find their letters remaining in the offices where mailed. Such are the requirements of the amendments to the postage law enaeted bj Congress at its last session. The following offioial letter, recently writ ten by Horatio King, Esq., First Assistant Postmaster General, to the Postmaster of New York city, tells the story. We advise the read er to cut it out, and paste it somewhere to be constantly within his reach for reference, until habitual oomplianco with its requisitions in his transactions with the post-office shall have sufficiently familiarised him with itsexpla. nations : Post Orrica Dxpabtmbjt, j ArroiNTMXRT Orrica, March 22, 1855 j Sib:?Your letter oi the 28th Inst, is re oeived. In answer, I am directed by the Postmaster General tc inform you? 1. The aotof3d March, 1855, making no provision for unpaid letters to plaoes within the United Stated, on the same or day follow ing any such unpaid letter or letters being pot into a Post Office, the Postmaster thereof will post up conspicuously in his office a list of the same, stating that they are held tor post age. If not attended to such letters most be returned monthly to the Dead Letter Office. 2. Letters postpaid should be despatched, charged with the additional postage due at the prepaid rate according to the distance, established by said act, except where the omission to pay the correct amount ia known to have been intentional, when they should be treated tho same as letters wholly unpaid. 3 It is proper to forward a letter when re quested by writing. When forwarded, no ad. ditional postage shonld be charged if the let ter, contrary to its address, has been missent. If it has been sent acoording to its address, and then forwarded, it must be charged with additional postage at the prepaid rate, accor ding to distance, established by the act of March 3, 1855, aforesaid. 4. Ship letters, as they cannot be prepaid, and are not supposed to be embraced in the new act, will eontinue to be despatched agrea r ble to the provisions of the fifteenth section of the aot of March 3,1855. I am, respectfully, your obedient servant, Horatio Kihg, First Assistant Postmaster General. Isaac V. Fowlbb, Postmaster, New York. Mr. Ferry ?The appearanoe of Mr. Soule's letter in the Intelligencer, with referenoe to Mr. Perry's course upon the Cuba question, for that is taken to be the drift of it, has cer tainly oreated the impression in unofficial cireles in this city that he, Mr. P., was secret 1 y sympathising very generally against the efforts of his Government to acquire Cuba, and that he wore during Mr. Soule's residence at Madrid, two faces. That is, that while he was professing to be aiding him to carry out the instructions of his own Government, he was counselling with the Spanish Minister of State as to the best manner of defeating the efforts of our Minister. We do not know that this impression rests on stronger authority than | the fact which has been made so plain to the world recently, that he was not before Soule's face wnat he was behind his back. We are emphatically for the peaceful acquisition of the Island of Cuba, and therefore regret sin cerely the oocarrence of anything going to postpone the time when Spain shall see her own interest in selling it to us, and we are now under the impression that Mr. Perry's oourse has had no little tendency to post pone it. The French and English Fro tost ?We are unable to say what is the exaet oondition of our affairs with Ecuador so far as the Galla pagos Islands are concerned, though we have every reason to believe that bo American protectorate over them exists. If, as is alleged and believed, they contain valuablo deposits of guano, all patriotic and far-seeing Ameri can oitisens will rejoice if on any honorable and not too oostly teims our agricultural in terest oan obtain what may be equivalent to a monopoly of all of that article that may be obtainable from them. Gaano is now an arti cle of almost universal prime neoessity. The supply is limited, and Peru, owning almost all of it that is really as valuable as available, is heavily taxing the agriculture of the rest of the world through that monopoly. No one of oommon sense will fail to see the importance to our oonntry of getting those islands if they oan be properly obtained, as explained above But we have to deal this afternoon more es pecially with the impudent protest of England and France against our acquisition of the rocks in question, for they are really nothing more. What right, forsooth, have they to set up as dietators for all world?saying who shaU and who shall not make peaceable territorial acquisitions by purohase ? Verily, in thiB ease, their insufferable impudence goes a bow shot beyond any thing of the sort known to international history. France, without say ing, " by your leave, sirs," to us or any other Power, has seised tho Caledonia Islands, the Marquesas, and the Sooiety Islands, in the same Pacifie ocean. England, too, makes no bones of taking territory by violence the world over, where ever she deems such aots necessary to the fur therance of her own Interests. Yet these two Governmental robbers and plunderers, as they have teen, flagrantly, for centuries, dare inti mate to us that in our ewn hemisphere we shall not be permitted?net to take by vio eompe?uation-but to purchase, pay for, end take with the free eonient of the universally acknowledged owner* thereof, two or three tooks la the ooean coveted with a commodity of fmt necessity to our people at large! Our renders may rely on it that the inso lence they manifest in this protest, will be Tory summarily bridled by the Government of the the United States, or we greatly mil" t&ke tho charaoter of those holding iU reins at this time. In truth, tho hypoerisy of tho pretence Of trance and England that their disinclination to aggression moves them to toake this pro test, is as. bold as their pretenoe that indigna tion against Russian aggressions upon Turkey hasinduoed them to aid the Sultan against the Csar. France, at this moment, holds a large and valuable portion of the Turkish empire?Algeria?wrested but yesterday, as it were, from the Sultan, by the sword, with, out pretenoe of right to it or peaceable acqui sition. England, too, holds by the same title the Sultan's Arabian city of Aden, taken eim ply because she desired to possess it, and without a why or wherefore even, by way of] an apology for thus despoiling one she oalls her ally! The Case of Gov. Rodman M. Prioe.?We find that we were in error yesterday in our statement of some of the details of the oase of Gov. Rodman M. Price, in oonneotion with his aocounts.when purser of the navy of the United States. It seems that after allowing him credit for all the money he claims to have paid over to his suocessor, whioh is more than $100,000, the balanoe claimed to be due from him, is still some $75,000! We hear it said that before suit was brought against him, he was requested by the proper officer of the Government to deposite the balanoe shown by the accounting officers to be due from him, and that no reply has been reoeived up to this time to that notification It seems that in the course of the investiga tion, the question arose as to the validity of the appointment of his clerk, Mr. Van Os trand to be his temporary successor, by Com modore Jones, whioh having been referred to the Attorney General for his opinion, he re plied in faver of the legality of that act. The amount of the balanoe claimed by the Gov ernment of Mr. Van Ostrand is very large indeed?over $100,000 at least. Weareunder the impression that he (V. O.) gave no bonds. Altogether, this is the richest oase that has occurred in the Government's transactions for some years past Wo understand that indi vidual officers who served in California with Purser Prioe, claim large balances from him on account of their funds which were in his keeping; Purser Forest $20;000, Lieut. Lewis, some $30,000; and, if we are oorrectly informed* others different sums. The Herald's very last Roorback, is a story saying that the present cabinet are all imme diately to be sent abroad as diplomatists, and that various gentlemen, whom it names, are to be called to occupy their places. The despatches embracing this bogus news, pur ports to come, one from Washington, and the other from Philadelphia. Unfortunately for its purpoee of obtaining credence for these silly stories, the Philadelphia Despatch goes too fully into particulars; saying that the pro gramme of the new Cabinet was arranged in Philadelphia on Saturday last between Messrs. Geo. M. Dallas and Pierre Soule, both of whom it names among the proposed aew min isters of State. We say that this statement is unfortunate lor the Herald's purpose, beoause it is well known that Mr. Soule left New York for Washington on Saturday morning at half, past nine o'clock, arriving here at 6 p. m , of that evening. So he was not on that day in Philadelphia, except in transit. That is, he stepped out of a steamboat on landing there, on to a railroad car,' And was whined away immediately at the rate of thirty miles an hour. We mention this fact only by way of cau tioning the Herald to confine its future roor backs concerning American publio affairs, to generalities?eschewing details, unless it de sires to have tho world oomprehend at a glance that it is merely leasing. However, both the false despatches in ques tion were doubtless manufactured to order in New York. An Avalanche of Them.?The "old soldiers" are evidently " alive and kioking." Yester day, about 3,700 applications for bounty land for them were reoeived at the Pension Office ! Three hundred other business letters were also received at that bureau, yesterday. These facts will give the distant readers fair idea of the labor performed in that branch of the Gov erament's affairs at this point. Yet all goes on there like clock-work, Commissioner Waldo having so systematised his affairs there, as that nearly every employee under him does much more than before Mr. W. assumed the direction of the Bureau's matters, and with greater ease and more comfort than when they were able to accomplish less. Appointments by the President.?Thomas W. Newman, of Miss., to be Register of the Land Office at Washington, Miss ; re-appoint ment. Henry Whittington, of Mo., to be receiver of publio moneys at Plattsburg, Mo., vioe W. Brown, deceased. Beverly Matthews, of Miss , to be Register of the Land Offioe at.Columbus, Miss., vioe Fielding L Dowsing, removed. The Last Installment Paid ?We under, stand that the Government have advioesof the payment to the Amerioan Navy Agent at Lima of the last installment of the Peruvian indem nity under the treaty of 1841, whioh was pay able in annual installments, it will be reool looted. The Current Operations of the Treasury Department.?On yesterday, the 2ftth March, there were of Treasury Warrants entered on the books of the Department? For the payment of stook $3,183 01 For oovering into the Treasury from miscellaneous sources.... 80 52 For the War Department 37,143 60 For the Interior Department 19,819 65 |y We have received from Joe Shilling ton Godey's Lady's Book for April. It con tains much interesting matter, and is hand, somely embellished. Tho oolored plate of fashions will particularly interest the lady patrons of that popular magaiine. Mortality.?The total number of deaths in New York, last week, was 456. Of the deceased, 65 died of consumption, 40 of infla mation of the lunga, 34 of infantile convulsions' and 25 of scarlet fever. There was three oas ei of uuioide during tho same period. BT MAGNETIC TELEGRAPH. i SEVEN DAT!

Alexander It. hod aseended tho throne in a 1

quiet manner, and forthwith itsfled a mani* 1 fosto declaring that he should endeavor to i earry ont the policy of the late Olar. [SBCOHD 018PATCH.) The Atlantio left Liverpool at 2 p. m. on 1 the 10th, and arrived off the light ship at abont midnight. She did not, however, come np until morning?having oxperienoed heavy * westerly gales thronghont tho whole passage ' She brings 74 passengers, among whom are Archbishop Hughes, Bishop Nouman, and ethers. The Atlantio arrived ont at Liverpool on the afternoon of tho 4th. The Emperor Alexander II- has suooeeded peaceably to the Ruisian throne, and has is sued a manifesto stating that he will adhere to the policy of his father Nicholas. Grand Duke Constantino and his other brothers, and tho prinoipal officers of the empire, hare taken oaths of allegianoe. The new Csar has oon firmed GortsohakofTs previous instructions to negotiate, and the ftrst preliminary confer ence has been holden at Vienna. Nicholas had, previous to his death, reoalled Mensohi koff, and appointed Gen. Gortsohakoff to the ohief oommand, Ostensacken to the seoond and Gen. Laders to the oommand of Bessara bia. Alexander has appointed Gen. Rudiger Minister of War. The allies have ordered their generals to press forward the war. There had been more fighting in the Crimea. The French had stormed a redoubt skillfully ereoted by the Russians during the night. Several hundred soldiers were killed. There was a strong rumor that the Grand Duke Michael was wounded in this engagement and had since died in Sebaatopol. A large force of Russians had threatened an attack on Balaklava. The blockade of tho Danube had been raised The city of Broussa bad been destroyed by an earthquake and most of tho inhabitants perished. A speck of disagreement had arisen be tween the Emperor Napoleon and England. Napoleon said that tho two armies should not aim together if Roebuok's committee prooeed od. Lord Clarendon thereupon proceeded ex press to Boulogne and made matter* straight. In the meantime the committee prooeeds, but it is thought that Parliament will be dissolved. Serious difficulties continue in Tioino, Swit serland. The Belgian crisis continues The King of Denmark is siok. The Ciar expired shortly after noon on Fri day, March 2d. His disease was atrophy of the lungs, lie was siek only a few days. His last words were to the Empreea : 44 Tell Fred erick (King of Prussia) to oontinue attached to Russia as he has hitherto been, and never for get his father's words." He said a few words before his death, and succeeded in effecting a reconciliation between his two eldest sons, Alexander and Constantino, who were hereto fore at varianoe. Tho news of the Ctar's death was reoeived in England with demonstrations of joy. In several of the theatres the managers oame be fore the ourtain and announoed the fact, which was received, in most instanoes, with tnmul tuous cheering. At Berlin, the Court plaeed itself in mourning, and orders were issued for the whole Prussian army to wear symbols of mourning for four weeks. At Vienna, the news caused great agiution. An order of the Emperor of Austria direots, that "in acknowl edgment of the servioes rendered by Nioholas during the time of unfortunate trials, the Nicholas regiment of cuirasseurs shall always preserve that name as a souvenir in the Aua trian army." In Paris, the police officers have arrested some ballad singers for ohaunting verses dis respectful to the dead Csar. The embassadors have announoed the new emperor's accession. A synopsis of Alexander's manifesto, re oeived via Konigsburg, declares the welfare of his empire his only ebjeot; he will endeavor to maintain Russia on her highest standard of power and glory, and aim to accompliah the expressed wishes andviowsof his predecessor, and hopes the seal of his subjeots will assist him therein. Immediately upon the death of Nioholaa being made known in Paris orders were sent to Gen. Canrobert, in the Crimea, to press on the siege of Sebastopol with the utmost vigor. Of the departure of Napoleon for the soene of action nothing additional is known. The first meeting of the oonferenoe at Vien na took place on the 6th inst. Their debatea, had for their prinoipal objeot the fixing upon the precise meaning of tho third article of guarantee in the four points. The Russian repreeentation was not present. Further con ferences were to be held without delay. Gen. Wedell had left Paris on his retnrn to Berlin, bearing, it was said, instruction which would insure the oonolusion of a treaty be tween Prussia and the Western Powers. The Chamber of Deputies at Stutgardt had voted the three millions of thalers demanded by the Minister of War, but had inserted formally, in the bill appropriating it, a recom mendation to follow closely the polioy of Aus tria. Ratifications of the treaty with Sardinia had boon exchanged. A dispatoh dated Sebastopol, March 5, reached Paris on the 7th, stating that fifty thousand Russians were threatening the English foroe at Balaklava, and that General Bosquet wu endeavoring to get his oorps in the rear of the enemy, with a view of cutting them off from their reinforooments, and be coming the attacking party. The weather had been very favorable, and at tho latest dates was fine. A convoy with 200 wagons had sueceoded in entering Sebastopol. The firing oontinued on both sides with more or less steadiness. During the night of the 21 it, the Russians threw up an armed re doubt on the flank of the forttfloatioae of Se bastopol, and en the night of tho 24th was at tacked and stormed by the Frenoh. Aeoounts of the aotion are very contradic tory. Mensohikoff says that the Frenoh were repulsed with a loss of 600 men, while the Frenoh aeoounts claim tho victory, with the loss of only 100. lhe frenoh had also destroyed the works around the Malakoff tower, but with great Dates from Eupatoria to (k?
