''Fast' Judge ?' We quote an insolont I article from the Washington Nfar in relation j to Judge Ingersoll, whieh bears the unmls-I t?k?ble evidence of having originated in the rffice of the Attorney General of the Unite! State* lhi* i* a cowardly way of assailing the reputation of a Judge, and we presume will be properly resented Ntto York Evh tng Pott, May 12th. The article 11 which the g*nilema/iiy editor of the I'ost refer* was the folio* ing item of news: "A 'Fast' Jena* ?Our astonishment at the recent decision ot tfce Judge In the Kiu uey and F^tens oase haa vanished already ; insomuch a* we hear to day. that he ha* hen* in bi'.'s to the sccouniing effljerot tho Govern rnent fir his ytr.xonal rxpf-srs ia ho'.diog the U S.

The Judge in question will be the vary lait man to dispute the aoeuraey of tha fact that' U hM Pp*^d ? bill to the United State* for personal expense*, while holding a eourt is New York, which amounts to an aggregate cf about $18 per diem! The editor of the Post, when he eomes to hi# senses, will hardly venture to argue that such h ram should be so paid out of the Treasury of the United State*. The law authorises the payment of the personal expenses of Ucfted J3tates Judges when engaged in holding court our of their respective oircuirs; bat it never contemplated that under any such pretence, a precedent thould be set for squandering Ihe publ to coiiey like water. The cffince of pre * ntivg such an acccuat is more fl igrant in a Judge than It would be in any other oflher of the Government, because the puHic have a r ght to look to fapetionarles In ruoh positions for models of propriety, moderation, and recti tude in all they d a as offioeraof the Government. That the account in question (at $18 per diem) is outragloui and indefensible, ij so evident, that we venture te assort that the Evening { oit will not print a line in its defence. Nor will the Post venture the opinion that a district judge of the United States can be in the habit of living at the rate of $18 per d em, (*? an extra out of the United States treasury,) without being a ? fast" liver at the public ex pense. With all due deference to the Even i?? Post, we take the liberty of repeating the opinion, that the extraordinary rulings of the jidge in question, in the cases of the United itates vs. Kinney and Fabens, wherein prece dent and common sense seem to us and to uiacy others here to have been Eet at noegfct, are in fair keeping, indeed, with that "little ac count" at the rate of $18 per diem for a h tel till and it ttteras. We repeat, the pre^enta* tion of suoh an account dispels our surprise at tUe extraordinary rulings is the trials men tioned above. A Meteorite ?The visiter to the Smithsonian Institution will notice in tho large hall which is designed for the niuseuta, a piooe of iron, something in the sbt*p* of an anvil. This is a remarkable specimen of meteoric 'iroi-, and is the largest miss in this country, with ne exception. It wa gh3 252, pounds is high ly crystalline, quite maiie .ble, and not diffi jalt to cat with a saw. It was brought to this conn Ty by Lieut. Couch, U. S. A , from Satiilo, Mexico. Various theories have been devised to acaonnt for tho origin of meteorites. One is that 'hey are small planetary bodies revolv ing around the tun. and that at timea they become entangled in our atmosphere, lore their orbital velocity by the resistance of tho at mosphere, and are finally attracted to the e&rth. They are also supposed to have been i-jicted from the volcanoes in the moon; and a third supposition is that they are formed from panicles fixating in the atmoaphero. Dr. J L;?vrrt-^e dumb vhohas made the subject a 'pecial study and has analysed this meteorite | and many cihars in the possossion of the Smith Ionian Institution, conoludea that the moom is the only large body in space, of which we | have any knowledge possessing the requisite :ondf!ion? demanded by tho pbysloal and chem 13-1 properties of meteorite?; and that they have been thrown eff from that body by vol :anic action. Dr. Sa.ith oonduoted his analytical investi gation in the Scnlth.-onian labor rtory, where ic also made, in behalf of the Treasury De partment, an extended exau ination relative t) the d ffarent kinds of molatsss imported in to |^is country. Ihe Sardinian Purchases ?Through private let'ers receivtd by the latt European steamer, we learn that Oabcur's bargain with England I to furnish the latter with flf.een thousand Sardinian troops to be wasted and destroyed la the Crimea proves so unpopular in the Sar dinian army as already to have broken down his iCabour's) ministry. Many of the troops to have been tent eff refused to go, officers and men shooting themselves to avoid this dis. graceful and self-immolating service. Sar dinia would have received $532 per head of | officers ard men, for his majesty's 8iaTea tkus s,,'d to disease and death. The bargain has! but a ringle parallel in the history of modern nations; tbe sale by the Elector of Hesse of| his subjects to George III to fight the battles of England in our Revolutionary War. As in that case, these Sardinian* have not the ?!ight:it interest in the war, as neither their Bounty's honor, rights nor interests a e in volve in it. ihe t fficial Distance.?Military officers ani others in the service of the Unl ed States, in California, who may of right oharge mileage I ?gainst the United S:at6s for going out or :omicg from ihe Pacific sido, will please take notice that, acoordicg to the books of the Post Uffice Department, tke post distance between New York and Ban Francisco is but 5 560 miles, not 6 000 as heretofore allowed for. llereafter all such accounts will be settled on to is basis.
