The editor points out tbe features? in their organi aation. upon which ho says there is serious uiiference among them, and argues to show that disgust on the part of the men of charac ter and good prineiples, who hive unwittingly joined them, will soon cause the order to be broken up The Union alto recount: the his tory of the recent prosecution against Meesr? Kinney and Fabens for alleged intention to ?violate the neutrality laws of the United State?. That is to say. as the editor compre herds it. The InteliigdPcer republishes an articic from the Evening Pott, deprecating tfco re moval of Judge Loring by the Legislature of Massachusetts, complimenting that journal warmly on the corrcctne=s of its view upon the subject, in saying^ We say frankly that we have nover ap proved of the removal ?f Judge Loring by the Legislature of Massachusetts lie was cU li*p laced for misconduct or incompetency iu his office as a judge. Neither his integrity, nor his learning, nor his capacity have been in question, ilia rffci.ce was that he acied a* a Icitrd Sia'es C^mmUcioner under the fa j^itiTC-ilivs lnw of 18o0. Klu remanded an ?soaped slave to hi* master He shares the vie ? s whi h Webster atd Professor Steuart. of Aodovcr, inculcated, and which, about the time of the passage of that law, if was the lashi^c in Massachusetts to preach irom the pulpits. Acp rding to those views it wa? a patriotic dusy to co operate in enforcing the law and restoring 'he runaways to those who claimed them, buo'a otions are now old fashioned in Mru^chusetis; but Judge Loring ?e*.n:s no* t> have rencuncod them with the same facility that o'hers have done when it became certain that they were no longer pop ular W e should certainly have thought better of Judge Loring if ho had refused td hav?? h id a^y thiag to do with the cxecutiou of tnat in fam us law. It did n'?t. however, fceloag to the Legislature to purish him for the par; ho took. All legislation of a vindictive nature is wror.g It is not the province of the Legisla tarts to puaiah its duty i3 to enact luws. and leave the puni-hmor.t to the civil magistrates. If Judge Loring bad commi'ted an act which the c >mmuni:y disapproved but which to law had deflced as a cii-as or attached to it any penalty it was the easiest thing in the world to res'rain him frcm repeating the tff-n:e The Judges uf the Stare Courts might have beju prohit-ited frcm acting under the f gitite slave law, aid there the matter won d have ended ? The removal cf a judge because he hip pe~s not to agree wita a mjjurity of the Legis lature in his interpretation of tbe Constitu tion er his views official duty is a most danger ous precedent. A Whig Legislature may find a Dem >cra* on the bench, an 1 insist upon dis placing him; a Democratic Ligislature may discover that a judge is unsound in reg.-.rd to the doctrine of internal improvements, or ?ome other dogmaot their creed and vote for taking away his office. A Kso* Nothing Legislature may remove a judge because ue is against re pealing the naturalization laws Ihere will be no limit to the caprice cf Legislatures; there wiil be co possible security for the inde penco cf the judges The Legislature will erect rseif into a general avenger of all polit ical heresies." A Valuable B.ok. We thank Taylor A Maury for gracing our book table wi*.h a copy of the " Manual of Sacred History; A Guide to the Understand ing of tbe Divine Plan of Sal vat on according to its historical developement, by John lienry Kurti, D. D., Professor of Ch'irch History in the University of Dsrpat (Ku-sia) Ac. Translated ficm the sixth Germnn edition; by Charles F Schaeffar, D D : Philadelphia. Lindsay A Biak'ston ." The author of this work is one et th$ most distinguished Protee tant churcnmen in Eur -p.* whose eminenco a* a sacrrd historian and bj universally respected character as a Christian tea her, secure him the consideratien of the Russian Government to such an extent as to induce his employment (though there a heretic) in his present distin guished position in the Russian ? spire. His book.of which this is a translation ranks as the best prr*oucal munualof sacred history extant. We Lave opened co hook of late, the plan and execution of which pleaded us more It is a precise key to the comprehension of much of the Sciiptqros which at times strikes the understanding of the mac who takes little time to investigate scriptural facts and infer eoce . a" improbable It is, indeed, a ready key to the study of the bible as tho old est historical work within the reach of the the great mass cf American reade-s. While shedding a flood cf light on biblical facts, the author, without any apparent effort so to do, imprests the min-l of his readers with proper appreciation of the divine philosophy cf the history he is studying It remains for the stodent after *ardi to profit by the enlighten ment and elevation of sentiment, which must influence his mind while perusing this useful and really interestiog work. tlTGreat preparations were making in Paris at the date of the last advices for the million of visiters, who, it is cxpected, will visit that city to see the Industrial Exhibition. Houses were building and undergoing repairs, and it was officially stated that fifteen thousand new wheeled carr-ages of various sorts had been prepared for the occasion. lhe opening of the Lxhib.tion has been postponed un'.il the middle of May.

The action of Jsdge Ingeraoll upon the in dictment against Messrs. Kinney and Fabens ?a understood to have been received with bo little surprise i unofficial circles here, as though it is judged that aider lome ftrango delusion, he is using hiirjadicial functions to a'd and abet filibustering. Hia ruling is, that tho United States must ga to trial cn the testi mony on which the indictment against K. and F. was found ; though it is well known to all conversant with the law, that a proaecu ting attorney rarely sends before a grand jury more of the testimony in a case than is sufficient to secure a presentment In this case the judge not only announced this sirange reading of the law, but also ignored the affidavit of the law officer of the United State*, that his request for a short de lay was occasioned by the absence of material witnesses. The reader will, from these facts, perceive why it is that the action of Judge J. j has been received with se grave surprise here. We have again to say that notwithitanding this judicial fanx pa*, it is hardly possible that the government will permit the expedi tion to sail. The Neutral Star."?Our talented, amiable and unaasuming Evening Cetemporary seems disposed to make a neutral of ns, terming us one in his issue of yesterday aftornoon. The idei la his, not ours Not long since he styled us an "administration organ." The Star is independent?not neutral?expressing the views of its conductor with emphasis on all public question?, without thought of subserving the interests or pleasing the taste of any par licular party or clique Neutrality implies being undecided No one who has read the Star ragularly, can really fancy that it is in our nature to fail to have an emphatie opinion upon every subject worth forming an opinion about. i he Retiring Li?t Hoax on the Baltimore Sun ?A correspondent writes us concerning this infam us outrage perpetrated on the several re?pcctable navy officer and the con ductors of the Baltimore Sun. u follows : The bogus list of officers purporting to have been appointed as tho Retiring Board, which was published in the Baltimore Sn/i of vester day morning, has excited much indignation in n?va! tirclcs from the fact that officers are included in it who acknowledge themselves physically incompetent to the performance of ?' all their duties ashore and afloat," but who have, nevertheless, by their gallant service m action, contributed largely to build our navy up, and establish it in public estimation. The gallant gentleman who beads the li-t of Captains in this " bogus list," commanded the 1 iconderoga, one of the principal vessels of McDonoutrh's fquadron ou Lake Cham, plain, and there are many officers, among them the distinguished one who now com m*nds our Navy Yard, who bear testimony ? his heroic gallantry in that severe action r or this service he reeeived the thanks of Congress and a gold meial For years his eyesight has been failing and he is now un derstood to be nearly blind. Again, the last of "this list of captains par ticipated as c midshipman of the Constitution 10 the capture <?f tne Cyaae and Levant His hearing w-i? sheeted by the cannonade of that action, and from that day to his ha- gradually become worse, until. a3 no is understood to aa is;; himself, ne is physically incompetent to pe-loiiu iia service Both the officers above referred to are .im-jng the most unexceptionable men in our nary, and yet they are niado tho subjacts of this heartless "joke." Other officers in this list could be referred to, whose constitutions i;ave been broken down in tho oourse of their professional career, but whoso characters are without spot or blemish. Jfr. Fabens There seems to be a strange misapprehension existing in New York con ceming the relation* of Mr. Fabena to the Government, as he continues to be styled "I nitod States Commercial Agent at Sr.n Juan Seme time 6inoe, we remarked on what appeared to us to be satisfactory proof that he had been formally asked to resign, owing to his complicity in the second Kinney expedition We were in error in supposing that he had promptly complied with tbat re quest. \\ t are not, however, in error in say iog, as we do now, that he has subsequently been removed from that position by the Secre tary of State. The fact is well known in foreign diplcmatio circles here. So Mr F. has no longer any official connection what* ever with the Government of the United States. Know Nothing Nomination in Aloxan andna ?The Know Nothings of Alexandrin have nominated a Mr. James D. Reid as their candida e for the Lower llous? of the Legis lature, throwing overboard Lewis McKeniie, who represented tlia county >n the lest House of Dilegates. Mr McKemie is a gentleman of high character and great experience, and most was proverbially one of the best informed and useful members of the last legislature, of the nominee, the editor of the Star knows nothing. Though a property holder and resi dent and voter in Alexandria county, where he was born, the editor of the Star never saw or even heard of Mi J as H Reid before. Mr. McKenzie's frieEds will support him, we understand The Codification of the District Laws.?We have not been able to learn what progress is being made by .he Board of Ccdifiers of the laws of the .District of Columbia, appointed by the President under the law of the last Session to that end. Great anxiety oertainly exists am.ing our fellow oitii-ns to know *hat they are doing. That is, to ascertain the general points by which this board propose to govern their action. We have to say to the public of Washington and Georgetown that it will afford us pleasure to spread in our columns any sug gestions with reference to the modification of any District law sent to our office by corres. pondents, which strike us as being likely di rectly or indirectly to aid the Board in making the best possible code. 8*ttl?rs Contesting State Claims to Swamp Lands ?As there seems to be misunderstand ing as to {he proper method to be pursued by parties in contesting the olaim of the State to swamp lards, the following rules have been adopted: The party wishing to con test the State claim must file in the Gen eral Land Office hie affidavit, or the affidavits of creditable persons, setting forth the true character of the land. On receipt of suoh af fidavit, the land officers are instructed toissuo notices to the proper State authorities, and the contestant, notifying them of the time and plaoe of investigation, and requiring them to a'teiid witn their witnesses cn the appointed Jay- The testimony adduced by both parties is to be reduced to writing, and transmitted with the joint opinion of .the Register and Re ceiver thereon endorsed, to the Surveyor Gen eral for examination and decision. The affidavit requirod to bo filed in the General Land Offioe ia/*"ded as an cpphA ration to enter the land**,* the pajfy filing' such affidavit first will have the preference right to e?try, provided it be aaoertained that the tr&et, at the time of it? selection as swamp land, waa properly in market as other public land* liable to entry, and that no rights h%d attached thereto prior to the filing of such af. idavit. Commutations of Fuel and Quarters ?By a decision of September 4, 1835, upon the meaning of " temporary absenee," aa used in Army Regulation 1,041, (paragraph 082, edition of 1841,) it was held that these words meant an absence not exceeding thirty days, so far aa the title of offioers to quarters at per manent stations waa oonoerned. Bat mem bers of oourts martial aro expressly excepted from the role by a decision made in 1840, and when away from their permanent posts on that dnty, are entitled to reoeive commuta tion for quartera and fuel at anch posts, though their absenoe may exoeed thirty daya.

Among the recent arrivals at New Ycrk, is Major General Jesup. A Consumptive's Suicide Coroner Lowry was, last evening, called upon to hold an inquest on the body of a German, named Frederick Schuchman, in South Pittsburg, who had died from the effect >f injuries inflicted by his own handa. The circumstances attending the porpetra tion of the deed, aro apparently as follows : Shucbman occupied a house on Coal Hill, and was in indigent circumstances He was a butcher by profession, and formerly pos sessed considerable wealth, which he squan dered ior drink, the immediate use of whioh soon undermined hi* constitution, shattered hi6 physical frame, and left it open to con sumption, which, by gradual progress, was making him its victim. For eomo two or three months Spaat he was oo&lined to his bed, and on Saturday told his wife that his pain was so great that he could arand it but little longer. On Saturday night she remained up and prayed in his behalf, by hia bed side, until 3 o'clock on Sunday morn ing. whon, being fatigued, she retired to her couch to i est, and being asleep probably half an hour, when she heard a noias, and on rising found her husband lying on the floor, hia head clothing covered with blood Her first im pulse was, that not knowing what he did, her companion had got cut of bed, and by exertion ruptured a blood-vessel. On making a more close examination, the real state ol the case presented itself to her gate. The truth, the awful truth, flashed across her mind. He had committed self murder. A large butcher-knife was lying by his side, covcrod with bluod, with which he had out his throat, almost from ear to ear, severing both the jugular veins. The alarm was soon Bpread to the persons residing in the neighborhood, and Dr. McCook sent for, who soon arrived, and bandaged up the injured man's wounds He gradually began to revive, a&d was soon enabled to speak, when he stated that he re collected arising froax the bed, but knew not what he was doing when committing the deed. In a short time he again began to fail and continued to do so until about three o'clock, when he expired. He leaves a wife and five children, in indigent circumstances, to mourn his untimely fate. The jury returned a ver dict in accordance with the facts.?Pittsburg Chronicle, May 7. Raft Excursion by Ladirs.?The Phila delphia Inquirer, of the 8th inat, says, three ladies, from Oswego, N. Y., came through to Columbia on a raft, laat week, tarrying there over laat Sunday; then proceeded on their journey to tide-water. Thia excursion was undertaken for pleasure, the ladies having a handseme cabin and comforts and delicacies to match. The exoursVon was enjoyed by them much. Singular Escape ?A few days since, while Mrs. Danforth, of Warren, Pa., waa engaged in her usual duties, a heavy thunder storm came up, and in the midst of ita fury a light ning stroke deacendeA upon her, burning the hair fr.m the crowaxf the head to the back of the neck, melting ner hair pins, and pro ceeding down her bodf?leaving its ma? u it went?until it passed through the floor. Strange to say, the fidy lived and is rapidly recovering. , Wixnebagoks on TOR Movr ?The St Paul Minnesotian ef the -?$d ait., says: General Fletcher came down from Long Prairie on Fri day laat, ana hassinee departed for the Blue Earth River, to select the new country grant* ed by treaty for theYuture home of the Win nebagoea.
