The business of the conference during the Utter part of the tension wa cf a somewhat exciiirg char accer, being the dkeastiosef resolution! look ing toward a change in that rule of the Meth odists which lastrtets their minister* to two yean in the same city. Kev D Foster advo cated t: e charg# in a apaoch of great ability. The rc*ilu:iooa were adopted by a small ma ?ri?y.

CS-T accost ot supporting the Cincinnati; ^i.-e .Department last year was $113. wmmcToi news asp gossip. th' Know Hothinjft Lot Virginia Lot tnose papers which advocate the 'A'neri aaa doctrines' be sustained and encouraged by the people. Wa venture the assertion, a.* 'f the 'Afro'ican Organ' had had a circu lation in Virginia of tweaty thousand copies, (as it ought to have had,) or if other papers which enter earnestly into polemic discussions in favor of American questions, had received that support they were entitled to, Virginia would have given oa yesterday not less than thirty thousand majority for the American ticket.''?Organ of ysterday. So, it seems that the Virginia Know Nothings Foat the election by failing to subscribe, amoDg them, for twenty thousand copies of the Organ! That, at leas', is the opinion of our amiable, talented, entertaining, and modes! neighbor; and who should know better than himself, who has given such irrefragible evidence that, though a veritable Kniw Nothing, he has been, emphatically, a know-somathing with reference to Virginia political matters* Oar Washington " sporting'' friends are all ready to swear this afternoon th~t of all know ing ones in Virginia mattftB, the Organ is the wisest as weil as the most decreet; for they have fe:t the effects of its learning and wisdom in their pockets, as men never before felt such a thing under similar circumstances They bet all they had. One hundred thou sand dollars, at the very least, were wagered here on this election, the " sporting" men and others betting on the judgment and information of our neighbor. Everything they could rako and scrape, even their fast horse?, billiard tables, breast pius, and watciics were put up after all their money had been staked. They ware not the only class speculating after this fashion on our modest, talented, amiable, and entertaining neighbor's judgment. Quite a number of our friends, the hucksters, who with great unanimity pin their faith to car neighbor's sleeve, also speculated largely. ' Some of them looked a little sick in the mar-1 ket this morning, doubtless only from fatigue in getting ready to shout ever the triumph of Fk urnoy. It is to fce hoped that the result of their vonture on the Organ's la'.e assever ations will not cause a r?so in tho price of but ter, already standing at a figure that causor porsons of moderate meant; to make wry faco; a? they swallow it. Some of the fair sex, tcc> are said to have mado similar investments, setting ransferablo things in their possession, sad c ubbing to make up purges with vhich to speculate on our neighbor's judgment and information. We think tLis story a slander, however, as we never before heard of betting by ladic: in Washington. Page county proved an awful bite. Up to a week or so ago there was a Know Nothing lodge in its limits em bracing some three or four hundred members, which it was calculated would greatly reduce the TOO msjority which it cast lor Pierce, the Scott vote cn thtii occasion being only 110 But very recently that lodge unanimously de termined to di.-solve and vote for Wise. A day or two since, its president cam? down into these uiggins with some tea thousand dollars in his pocket, in search of speculators in our ne;ghbors judgement, and found them too; amcng them being our talented, enthusiastic. am;.tble, modest, and interesting neighbor it self, which ventured a grab for Ave hundred of the Pago men's money. The story that half of this stake was bet by a clergyman who ha? defied the stole fur the stump is, doubtless, untrue. It wa*' all the venture of somo of the Organ joint stock lay partners None of i' ww put up in tho shape of a city lot, which is a proof of the fact. Tho wager was on seven hundred majjrity in Pago for Wise, But, perhaps, we must not "tell tales out of school, though they do convoy lessons which should bo laid to heart by ail who sincerely desire the well-being cf society. As for our neighbor, by his own showing on the day beure yesterday, be is this afternoon as dead as any 2*ova Scotia herring now lying box?d up in tho stores cf our friends John Bail or Joseph W Davis. For he said on that occasion: "Before iho ?un now sulking shall sink be hind the mountains of tho West, Virginia will be redeemed from thraldom to the Uichmond junto. We have no more doubt of this, than we ha\e of our physical exkteiice * * m Vv e doubt not that before sunset thi3 day, '^hoa:as S Floumoy will be tho Governor C^ect oi \ irgsn:^. by a mujority, ranging be tween five and fifteen thousand votes." Whea Lis friends, who have extracted 5? much money out of their opponent? by ven turing everything lut tho sh-jti on their backs, on bis judgment, give him tho grand and imposing funeral to which he is fairly entitled at their hands, we shall certainly at tend as a mourner, on personal, not political, grounds; for though we have never placed con fidence in hi3 judgment on Virginia or any other political matter?, be i3 really a very clever fellow and a gcod neighbor. We sin cerely hoje. howevsr, that ho may live long enough to teach scciefy a few more such 1C3. sons on tho folly of risking its money on the calculations of interested politicians. Tax<? oa U. S. Property ?A voucher was presented by a disbursing officer for the pay ment of taxos ou oertain public property, which voucher was disallowed. It waa held that no cession of jujudiction by a Stato was noceaaary to exempt United States property, of the kind meaUcuAd in the Constitution, fr. m taxation. Whon the legis lature of a Sta'e has given its cousaut to the purchase by the United States of any place ?:for the erection of forts, magaaine and other needful buildings," Congress, by the Consti tut.on has exclusive jurisdiction ovsr fueh plan in all ciscs whatever, and no S:?te or Corporation can levy and collect taxos upon the property. It is, on general principles, doubtful whe thtr such taxos could be legally as.oj ed, even if the legislature had not giveu its con teat to the purchaser ; as it would scorn that State government* could not possess the right to tax the constitu'ional means employed by the government of the Union to execute Itj constitutional powers. (See 4 Wheaton 316) MiutJ, navy yards, arsenals, barracks, Ac , areandouoted means, *r instruments of this description. They are also means to advance the prosperity and dofend the property and persons of the E!ates in which they may be located. They are, in short, plainly public property, held for the public benefit; which property might be rendered worthless for it; designed object, if States god corporations should be authorized to tax it. Tho Kinney Expedition ?From vrhat is1 ? ? amoLg the representatives of foreign Governments here, we presume that we were eorrect in attributing the reeent visit cf the United States District Attorney for the Sou h era District of New fork, Mr McKe<m, end Jos.L White, E,jq ,the counsel of the Mictrngua Transit Company, to Washington, to bo to lay j before the authorities here evidence going to show the necessity for preventing the contem plated sailing of the Kinney expedition. Signor Marcoletta, the Nicaraguan minister, also came here from New York at the lame time, and is understood, in diplomatio circles, to have taken a Tcry active part, indeed, with these gentlemen in poiating out and proving up the illegality of the expedition. We think it was shown, among other things, that two barques are now laying off the coast of Flori da, (near St. Joseph's.) laden with arms, am munition, Ac , and awaiting the arrival cf the steamer about to have sailed from New York with the adventurers. Tbefe facts, with the Brownsville letter of 'Col Kinney, which we published on tbe day : before yesterday, and other circumstances -which are being conversed over in foreign dip lomatic circle, of the federal metropolis, have certainly created the belief in such quarter? that orders left here yesterday afternoon to put a final stop to the project, accompanied by testimony and information quite sufficient to accomplish that object speedily. . Kr. Wise.?This gentleman has been over whelmed with visitors, at the residoace of his son-in-law, Dr. Garnett, on Ninth street, in this city, for forty eight hours. liis leading friends throughout Virginia have been send ing him dispatches, fast and thick, of the re suit of the eioction, which being known made tho Doctor's readence the headquarters of all the most reliable election new3 coming hither. Mr. W. ha3 been kept in a whirlpool of ex citement by the crowd bo constantly around him, if no; by the election news bo has been receiving. The manner in which his physical nature has kept its strength un lersuch atrial is wonderful, indeed; it not having flagged for an instant. He looks at this moment as though able, as well as willing, to keep his ante-el*c. tion premises to " Sam," enunciated in his never-to-be-forgotten speech in this oity; and he seems not to exult as much in his triumph for his own sake, as in the fact that?using his own wojds in the memorable speech above re ferred to?he has got his foot on Sam's neck. Arrangements havo been made to honor him with a serenade to-night at 9 o'elock, when the amount of his majority will probably be definitely known. This jabilee will conio off in front of Brown's hotel. Civil Fand of California.?This is the title ^iven to the monies that wero raised and col lected in California, by officers, 4c., acting under the authority of the United States, from duties, penalties, contributions, and internal assessments, after the date of the treaty of peace with Mexico, and up to tha time wheD the collection of the re venue pissed into the bands of the oollectors, ?fcc., appointed under the act of Congress extending tho revenue laws of the United States over that Territory Wo learn that the accounts of tho officers who had charge cf the collection and disburse ment of these monies are approaching final Adjustment in the office of the Third Auditor of the Treasury, under law3 recently pasred providing for the sime, from which it appears that this civil fund is by no mjana a small affair. These collections, it seems, amount in tho aggregate to over ono and a quarter mil lionaof dollais. Out of thii fund were de frayed the expenses cf the actual government oi California, prior to the formation of a State government?of furnirhing relief to destitute oroiland emigrants to California?of ihi Con vention called to frame a constitution?-?! &e collection, safe keeping, and disbursement of ti e fund, and for other purposes? and a lsrge ? am fcr purposes cornectcd with tbe quarter master's deparment of tho army en the Pa cific. It is evident that in the investigation and settlement of accounts eo anomalous in their charteter, involving such large sums of money, and requiring frequent reference to various acts of Congress relating to tho sub ject, much labor mt!3t necessarily ht-vo been expended. While it will be gratifying to those iutorened to know that a final settle ment will shortly be made, we doult not it will be equally bo to those who have Lad the investigation of fho same, to have completed a tarii so important and arduoua. The Election Zl*citonieiu?Washington for foity-ei^ht hours has been in an intemo state of excitement unexampled in its history. All agos, col-.r, and classes aro evidently under itf influ?J5?0 -From tha infant just out of the arnis to decripid old ngc, tho tongues of all ara wagging up^a the srcspecta of the elec tion or defeat of Henry A. Wise. ?fce street! until this morning, when tbe result wa? ad mitted by all, were crowded with people eon versing, wrangling, Letting, sweating, and swearing over the interesting ipemo. The f/i-jnds of Wise in this oity, numbering quite as many Whigs as Democrats, have been in lii^h glee from the inatant they heard the re port of tho first gun?of the re3ult in Altxan 4rla?wbiie the faCf? of tfc'-'Se of flcumoy ha7* bean elo gated by degrees, until at the present writing they are faiily chargeable with double price for shaving. ?t. Louii Lot Claims ? Under an act of Congress ef May 23th, 1824, the Recorder of Land titles was authorized in oertain olarses of ca?e3, to confirm claimants in their town lots, and in all such o-sos dircoted, as the evi dence of their titles, that "confirmation ar? tiji&Uti" should be granted. At the last ses sion, a general act dated 22d December last was passed, authorizing the issueiDg cf Pat ents in certain classes of cases which had been heretofore confirmed. It has boen decided by tbe Land Department that th*s act of 1854 does not abrogate oro'uange the provisions of tkc act first above mentioned. The aetof 1854 oi ly relates to those cor firmed claims in regard to which the acts of which the acts of Con gress do not direct what form of title shall be granted to the confirmees.
