SPIE1T OF THI MOBHIHO PRESS The Union replies to an assault in the New York Times upon the Administration. The Tim*y Insists that the President fails to carry cut his purposes, and the Union refute, its alh|ttkm of instances to prove that aMertion Tiie offloiai editor in so doing takes oooaaon to hold the Timet np to publio reprehension, for onoouraging Kossuth to malign the Presi dent and the United States in writing of our Cuba question, saying in the oourse of his ar ticle: "Itig from a newspaper oootrolled by sach ?entiments that we may naturally expect the ?M7t.S!*aluvup<m ?T#rJ P'Mident of the United Mates whose administration is an ex ponenr. of republicanism.

It is, as we have ?aid, however, a very natural thing that euch ? paper should halt at no extreme, however dishonorable, to stain the good name of the American republie, and as there seems te be ao more abandoned mcde of accomplishing this labor of love, it boldly strikes at the high est of our public servants " The Intelligencer commenting on the Union's remarks concerning the arret of Mr. Thompson, American "Vice Consul at Sagua la Grande."

WUlllWTM ITEW8 AMD GOSSIP. ThePerry Correepondenoe?In the ebseaee of more importent topics, some of our ootam poruries ere discussing the Ferry letters already published end those yet unpubUshedV Of oomree. as to the Utter, they ere pretty mach in the dark; and as to the question how the former came eat, there seems to be quite e contrariety of opinion, end pretty consider able promiscuous guessing. Who divulged them, is simply who has been guilty of an tot of perfidy that should seeure the reprobation of every honest men. We hare endeavored to asoertain the truth, end we are perfectly satis fied. And, firstly, that the correspondence al ready brought to light could only have been published by three perties: 1. Perry. 2. The State Department. 3, Some one to whom Perry or the State Department had imparted It. We have satisfied ourselves of the fact that the State Department neither furnished it for publication nor allowed the copy in its custody to be seen by any person whatever, and no copy of it wee taken for any purpose. A paper insinuates that Mr. Mason, of Vir ginia, ohairman of the Senate Committee of Foreign Affairs, may have done it. Senator Mason is a friend of Mr, Soule, and a man of high honor, and the eccusatien is as baseless as it is foolish Mr. Perry, we are fully con vinced, is at the bottom of the matter. The edi tors of the InHlligeneer admit they saw the let ters, and that they were offered to them for pub lication, aid that they declined them, be cause of the impropriety, before they appeared la the New York Timet. We give these gen tlemen credit for this cheracteristio act of honorable end lair dealing. We wish we could as conscientiously and freely compli ment their full exoneration of Perry from the attempt to get it surreptitiously before the public, and the failure to as fully exonerate others that do not belong to the party of the IntelligMMr. And we disagree in opinion with them as to Perry's sgency. We doubt not in the end it will be found out that two impulses?1. An inordinate vanity; and, 2. A hatred of Mr. Soule?have induoed him tj perpetrate this act of perfidy and dishonor. That he sent this correspondence to his friends in the United States via England, we are en tirely oonvinced, and that this is the true means by whioh it came to light we have no doubt. Besides, there is, we hear, a supple mental correspondence that has been sup pressed, and which Perry alone could have any motive for suppressing. It consists of sun dry notes from Mr Soule to him, in which the latter directly charges the Secretary with having betrayed the secrets of the Legation to the Spanish and English Governments, and denounces him in language of unmeasured severity. We allude particularly to a note Mr. Soule addressed him from London. Sub 1 seqeently, when he returned to Madrid, we learn that Perry admitted his "indisoretion," and threw himself upon Mr. Soule's indul gence; but it seems he was waiting to strike a blow on a more propitious<oocasion. Mr. Perry, we understand, married a Span ish lady, the euthoress of one or two popular Spanish novels, and is maoh attached to his position. But we shall not be surprised if he will soon be relieved. The true solution of the Cuba matter strikes us as being, that J Congress "stood mute" when asked for the i five millions, and the Administration could not act, and hence Mr Soule resigned; and, 1 further, that bis position Is not ohanged with \ the President or Cabinet in anywise or degree, ? and be left on the best possible terms with all and all efforts of their mutual enemies to oreate hostility will fail. ) ?? I ? The Self-Conitituted Mentor ?The oonduc 1 tor of the New York Herald gravely advises r the President to call an extra session of Con % gresa and propose at once to declare war * against Spain on account of the El Dorado '9 I affair, assuring that functionary that the only I salvation for his Administration lies in pursu iling that oourse. As it will bo recollected I that the Herald has been steadfast in its I friendship and ardent solicitude for the feme 9 I and fortune of the Administration, of course I its onduotor's advice in this case comes from r I the best motives conceivable. His heart has I been full of affeotion for President Pierce ever I since the latter indignantly repelled his im I pu Jent application for the mission to France. I His stories from Washington saying that the I subject of an extra session has been disenssed I in Cabinet oouncil ere all untrue. We are I entirely satisfied of their untruth.

Prussia has issued a cricular to the diplo matic eonsulars stating that there is reason to believe that the negotiations now in progress will terminate in peace. The ship Great Republio has arrived at London, and there is no dock large enough to admit her. From Spain we learn that on the 8th of March the government announced in the Cortes that tranquility was restored to Cuba, and the government would do its utmost to prevent further difficulty.

It is a matter of doubtful polioy, and looks very much like a manuver to get eontrol of said road by a certain party, for purposes suitable to their private interests If this stoek be put up at auotion, the presumption is these indi viduals will buy it, and thereby procure an ascendancy in the directorship, which, I fear, might work adversely to the future prosperity of the work. It beoomes our people to look well into the matter, and the Mayor to weigh it well before aoting. Oar city is quite lively. The theatres and places of amusement are all doing well.
