KVENING S't \ R. WASHfS^TON CITY: WXOVK8DAT API: N OH May 9 SPIfcll OF TUB YOd?I?a Fd?*P. The Union republishes its exposition (or' ' nelly mad* some months ago) of the bit place of the persons in the service of the Government in ell branches of its busines. This re publication is induced bj the fact that, a false account te the contrary la now bair..; circulated in North Carolina for politic 1' effect The Union also replies to the Intiut. geneer'a " cork tree' joke, which the editor | does not appear to relish takes occasion to say with much vim 'm this connective? " However domestic 'organsbip may ezoite the indignation Df the IuteUigencer, there is something m carrying the burdon of a cham pionship of monarchical ideas, despotic wrong*. Ala the intrigue* of absolute governments, which, no matter how well paid for, and how gratefully remembered. Is too sure to pall' upon the appetite It is a heavy burden at beet; a burden of shame; a very Atlas, even upon choulders so ready to bear it, but not Able to bear it all the time. Happy indeed < for the aristocratic few in the Old World who] oau boeet of two such allies of despotism as the lnt?lligfneer and the 'Crewtra' in the Inited states?happy they in these conscien tious advocates of tyranny, when, in tk* ip/icie rang* of monarchical nations tkerr m not ore paper or one man that dares to dtftiid the principle* of the Amencnn people. We repeat, to the debauched despots, the dis *olnre evinces, the profligate princesses of the Totter royalties of Europe?jou are happy and fortunate in these your defenders. But we cannot reciprocate the compliment to the Intelligencer ; its part of the pageant is not eo felicitous or so fitting We confess that we would much rather be the quandam organ' cf a democratic ad mini.-'t rat ion here, than the submissive echo of the ? Duke of Victory ' mod his royal mistress It is to ohange this relation, however, no matter how transiently, ihat the Intelligencer -eeks to refresh itself is the employment of lighter themes. We are not inhuman and are glad ty set our venera ble neighbor briefly relaxirg from bi, ieTere and exacting toilj " The Intelligencer denounces the removal of Judge Lorin?. by the dominant party in the Massachusetts Legislature, iu unmeasured terms We Tegret that want of space to-day prevents us from transferring the whole of its able article on the subject to the Star's col umr.s Iu drift, however, may h? understood from its opening olause as follows : Thb \ ictimizkd Ji/*D(?c ?4 tee more we re dec upon the proceed-ngs of the Massachu setts Legislature in ihe case of Judge Loring ihe more doe* it surprise us that a people who have always heretofore been charac'erised as 1 overs of lew ?nd order should all ai owe have 1 thrown away this enviable distinction, and proo wasi 'hem-elves the abettors of a stMe of things little beuer than mobocraey If we understand it. the case is a ver* simple and plain me, not at all requiring legislative in terference Judgo Loring, beiLg whtt is eallai in Mas? ichusette a ??

The Second Kinney expedition ?We have every reason to believo that the proceedings to step the second Kinney expedition, recently nD^*rtaken iQ New York, had their origin a?d were based by the Gwamment on the representations of the Nicaragaan and other Central AnceHcan Ministers, backcd by such eviuence as the United States law officers in New \ork city have gathered there I nder existing circumstances, we do not' perceive hew our Government can permit any such enterprise to leave a pert of the United | States, even though its leaders may not now contemplate revolutionary ends on arriving | out with their followers ihe plan is to take from four to six hubdred armed men from American cities intr: Nicaragua, to work the ?ur **? There was to hare been quite enough of them to ?-t the weak government of Nica ragua at defiance, if its laws or regulations ?houJd prove distasteful to them. All expe rience of such coloniratioa from the United States, shows that Americans going out after tfcatfaehioa, eannot and wilKoot live peacea bly with the Central Americans, and under] their law; It is well known too, that Nica ragua is not In such an industrial condition as to admit the hope that the proposed army of c^nists can support themselves there by labor So they mu*t live, for acme time at leaet, by the right of the strongest, as, if the mine^ they propose to work would yield them ? livelihood, they would surely havo been worked by the natives Nicaragua's govern ment is in an unsettled state, and it is very certain that the e colonists would join one fac tion or the other giving the faction they might join the power to rule They would thus speedily have the real government in their hands. Now. all this is in direct conflict with the I obligations of the United States under the Claytou-Bul wer tre ity, in which we bind our selves not to make eeulemenu in Central America or in any other manner to interfere m the political afiairs (to their Americaniza tion) of either of the Central Amerioan States To this hour we have a difpute with England fouuded on our allegation that she has failed to observed her similar obligations under the Clayton Bulwer treaty, continuing to hold the island of Ruatan, (the key to the command of the commerce of the Carribean Sea) and her other settlement* on the Central American eoaets. which this Uoverpment contends wore to have been abandoned according to the *iw**y 1* these colonists are permitted to go out there and in any manner set the weak Government of Nicaragua at defiance or Inter, fere to mould the future of its affairs, a strong argument will thus be aoeorded to England to perssvere in failing to observe the treaty. Our commerce in that direction is fast in creasing, and the uninterrupted right of way for the paeaage of our eitiaens over the two Central Amorican routes to California is now a Batter of the first national importance For its insurance fer all time it is abeolutely ne cessary that Britain shall, sooner or later, ? arry ?ut her obligations under the treaty So, we take it for granted that uur Government will, uuder no circumstances permit anything to be done by Its oitiiens which bids fair to enable her (Britain) to declare that she fails to observe the treaty, because the United States practically set their obligations under it at nought. The Resignation of Commercial Agent F&bene.?The telegraph tells of this event. It is not unexpected to us, as we heard a day or two sinoe, from one of his (Mr. Fabens') friends, that the Secretary of State had inti mated to him that he could not continue to be permitted Vo hold a commission under the (Joversment, while engaged in an enterprise which is held by the President to be at lest of questionable propriety. \ Depository of Public Money Closed ?The Secretary of the Treasury hae directed that the depository of public money at Jefferson, Indiana, be closcd. The necessity for such an office there was occasioned by late heavy sales of the publio lands in that district, which having ceased, there is no further requirement for it there ?.

It is now near 10 o'clock, and the moon's ecliptic phenomenon is progressing with thou sands ef gaxicg admirers The opportunity for viewing it has been and is peculiarly fa. vorable. Cynthia rose majestically, ana for seme time prior to har approaching tbe earth s intervening shadow, was encirolad by a golden halo This by degrees disappeared, atd heaven's silver orb hung bright and beautiful in the cerulean arch. Mot a cloud wa* seen. 1 never beheld a more lovely night At the appointed time, as foretold, our modeet queen of night began to retire behind the sable, shadowy curtain. She is now as I write, five minutes to 10, about half obscured Ere long she will have taken the black veil, and be lost for a time to the numerous audience whose eyes are turned heavenward. There >s nothing strange or wonderiul in this phenom enon. yet it. proclaims the greatness of Him who framed the universe, and demonstrates the exactness with which his laws are ob served No man can behold and eontemplate the grandeur, beauty, exactnees of creation, and not acknowledge tbe existence of a Ood The harmony of the planetary world, and the incenceivable exactness with which my riads of orbs roll in the immensity of space, should aloae teach all intelligence to admire and adore their mighty author. The first of May came in upon us this morn ing rcbed in vernal beauty. Tbe air wad balmy, and all nature oonspired to lend en chantment. Hundreds, I may say thousands wf the young, were out Maying gathering wild flowers and enjoying those pleasures so consenant with feelings of love and romanae. The surrounding woods were vocal with sweet voioes, whilst many a dreamy, loving damsel had her heart gladdened by the presentation of a boquet?May's first offering, affection s sweetest, tenderest token Soft zephyrs, bud ding flowers murmuring rivulets, and a thousand similar congenial emblems of poesy whispered thf .-e anthems of melting melody in harmony with young love s dream O how pweet to bask in the wild labyrinthian mates of youthful romance?to run back on memo ry's pathway, dwelling upon its green spots and halcyon glories I Would that May were !ven>^LaK? ?pnng could last forever '-that the bright, happy dayg of javenality, so per SSS'of * 10 M8irT,aUt<>J t0 th? *e*. green robiof of were never ceasing. itte beautiful sword, a national oomplimfot i k!!
