EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: SPIRIT OF TH1 M0&9THQ PRESS ' The Jnulligtneor, alter announcing the oer tainty of the election of Wise, oopiM a para graph from the Unto* disclaiming any pur P?*e of eastiag a reflection upon Messrs Heath end Edwards, former Commissioners of . Pensions, in what the latter journal said a few days ago with reference to (ho arrest and crimes of Graham, the pension paper forger The Inflltgtnctr adds a well-deterred ocm pliment to the long, faithful, and efficient ser vices of Mr. ex-Commissioner Edwards as the head of the pension branoh of the public ser vice. The Union defends Col. Forney (who is now ia Philadelphia) from a late onslaught of j the Riohmond Emammer upon that gentle maa. saying in the oonrao of its remarks : " la the absence of Col Forney, however, we may be excused for discharging an act of] friendship to him by remarking that hie rep utation lot personal integrity and warm , hearted devotion to elevated and honorable] sentiments, as well as his well earned ohar acrer for unwavering political orthodoxy,, plaees him entirely beyond the reach of the low wurrillity of the Kiohmond Examiner The editor of that journal could not harm such a man as Cel. Forney. He might dedi cate hi? life to the concocting of calumnious ! and abusive epithets, and the most that he could effect would be to furnish food for the depraved appetites of a few such journal ist. a* Bennett, and secure for himself the noto riety ot an adept in blackguardism By his brilliant and effective advocacy of sound na tional democratic principles through a series of animated political eonc*te, on all occasions denouncing abolitionism in every shape, and maintaining the constitutional rights of the South with unwavering consistency, Col For ?ney has established for him?elf a national reputation which the editor of the Examiner may envy, and seek to aalumniate, but whioh he is wholly ineapable of emulating or in juring."

Henry A Wise ?The announcement in the Star of Saturday afternoon last that the Washington friends of this gentleman de signed complimenting him with a serenade at nine o clock of that night in frcnt of Brown's hotel, causcd an assemr !age of at least five thousand persons on Penn Avenue, between 6th and 7th street*. Shortly before the ap pointed hour, the marine band appeared on the magmfioent portioo of the hotel, and played a few airs, after which, Mr Wise made his appearanoe in front of the orowd of ladies and gentlemen by whom the large portico was tiled. Col. Berrett introduced him to the assemblage of citiien? of Washington, and the shouting with whieh he was received having subsiled, he essayed to address his friends who so enthusiastically caliel on for a speech. There were on the outskirts of the crowd, in knola of forty or fifty, some three or four hundred rowdies, blackguards and ruf fians, led oc. by, here and there, a man making pretension to character and position ia Wash ington, who attended for the purpose of pre venting Mr W ise from being heard. doubtless leas: his address might dimage the Know Nothing eaose in the election to take place ia this oity on Monday next. The appearanoe of iir. Wis# in the sight of the people was the signal for them to commence a series of out rages on dacenoy and the so solemnly guaran teed American right of tho free discussion of American public affairs, unprecedented, at least in ihe history of this oommunity. He was not only howled at in ooncert to drown his voice, but profane and brutally valgar language was hurled at him continually by . the cowardly rowdies, who, had the light of the sun been shining on ihem at the time, would have stood mute as mice: more or less of them doubtle.s ic dread lest the eyee of the police, long in search of them for offences against the criminal laws of their country, (perpetrated when the pall of midnight hang over us all and honest men were asleep ia bed,} might reveal their identity. Notwithstanding this so evidently prearranged ruffianly assault upon his rights and those of the thousands of sub stantial and respectable citiiens ol Washing ton assembled to hear him, Mr Wise eesayed to eddreas them describing the circumstances under which he accepted the then apparently bootless nomination for the position to whieh he ha^ just been chosen The contest was then coaoeived at moat a hopeless one; for his opponent (Know Nothingism.) bad swept over the non-slaveholding States like a whirlwind of fire. Alone he set out in January last from the low lands of Ac omac, to teat the streng*h of this apparently resistless giant, in the full confidence that it was at best but an impudent imposture whieh a fearless and patriotic man could easily conquer with the sword oi truth In the depth of winter he had hunted him on the hills of the Piedmont eosotry, in the dells of the Valley, and in the caverns and amid the snows of the trans Alle ghany region of the State. He had found htm everywhere, and had unoeremeneoualy esUiyei the wolf of his eheep's clothing; ex poring to the people his real character and alms, showing that the former wm based on falsehood and deceit, end was copied in its every prejudice aod feature fro* the ?haraeterittics of the wont and moot dan gerous claaaea of society in Europe, in Eu rope'a moot corrupt and ignorant timet; while the latter (the enda and aima of Know Notbingism) would ne?essarily lead to the do structioa of the rights of the South, and of the Amerioen eitiien throughout all the Statea. He explained the identity between the anti Catholicity of Nnow Notbingism and that of England in the timea of OuyFawkes; and he placed in glaring light the features of the acts of the Know Nothings whioh he believed to be identical with those of the organised bands of the oath-bound assas sin societies who prowled over middle Eu rope in the middle ages, each man of them with a dark lantern in one hand and a eon oealed dagger in the other. His brief paral lei between them, their doings and their ten dencies was so powerful as to induce those who hung on the outskirts of the meeting to put down the right of free discussion in this city, to howl as we hare more than once heard packs of wolves howl when, after skulk ing from the light of day, they assemble in the immunity of the shades of a moonless night, as though to warn dwellers on the prairie that they lived in the vicinity of such neighbors Mr Wise, proceeding, said that his joy was not on account of his own triumph, but be* cause be had broken the lance and and shiv ered the shield of the most dangerous ODSiLy of the liberties of his country known to its history ; describing the element! of that dan ger somewhat in detaU. He had got his foot on Sam's neok, and intended to keep it there until all Sam s power for harming the liber ties of his countrymen were defunct past pos 8ible resuscitation He owed his triumph, he said, to the indomitable true Democracy ot the Old Dominion and to her patriotio and con servative Whigs, who have nobly locked shields in defence of their country's oon&itu t on and laws and of the equal rights of Amer. ican citiienship, the sheet anchor of American liberties. Tho contest had not been one be tween Whigs and Democrats; but between them, on the one side, combined, and com batting the men of the State of bad passions and worse principles, and the deluded but honest persons who had temporarily gone off with them from both political organisations under sinister leadership and oounsels, and were struggling to subvert all the rights which our forefathers won for us with their blood from Qeorge III., under the hypocritical pre tence that they were the peculiar '? Ameri cans" who should, of right,44 rule America " In the course of these remarks Mr. Wise paid a moet eloquent and impressive tribute to the spirit of patriotism whioh had induced the thoughtful and really subEtantial citiiens of both political parties to lock shields after a bitter ci^ntee: with each other of thirty years' duration, to defeat the p&ricidal purposes of such men as that moment hucg ho *ling a' him on the outskirts of the vast ajsemblage But the increasing noise of these last men tioned parties compelled him either to desist or risk the entire destruction of his lungs, tried sorely, as he explained, in th? preceding one hundred and twenty days' canvass So, thanking hia friends present for the compli ment they had paid him, after attributing it to their devotion to the cease of the Consritu tion and religious and eivil liberty and equal ity, whose standard bearer he had been, he withdrew amid deafening shout# of the multi tude In the course of his remark*, while taking a glass of water, some one concealed in the middle of one of the howling packs before de scribed, sang out, ? Give us a little of your holy water!" Mr. W. instantly seised the opportunity to rebuke his insulters in a way that will never be forgotten by thoso who heard him. He said that their conduct there proved how much they stood in need of any thing which would cleanse their hearts and minds of the leprosy of infidelity, vice, crime and bad passions, which, together, made them such dangerous enemies to their country. He advised them, if holy water they would have, to go to their High Priest for it?to Theodore Parker, who stood higher as a mem ber of their order than any of the rest of the thousands of abolition clergymen of the North who ruled its policy, which they had sworn fearful, if unlawful, oaths to oarry out. He referred them also for Holy water to the seventy Know Nothing clergymen of the Mass. Legislature, who, in oarryingoutthe purpose* of Know Notbingism, had deliberately doprived native born whites of the south, and of their own btato when their parents happened to see tho light first on the other sideot the Atlantic, of the right of trial by jury, and had endowed the runaway negro with that right, to be exercised in his favor by abolitionists only, rather than by freemsn of the vicinage in which his of fence against the laws had been committed 4c. He recapitulated, with great effect, the offences of these clergymen against the con stitution and the laws of their State and th* Union, against civil and religious rights, 4o. The impression of what occurred before Brown's hotel on this occasion made strongly in favor of Mr. Wise, more through the usjusti* fiable, outrageous and dastardly conduct of the prowlers on the outskirts of the meeting, than through the effect of his remarks, which ow ing to the shouting and howling above referred to. oould not have been comprehended by a tithe of thoee present. The Frigate Congress.?Toe following are the offioers ordered to the frigate Congress, just ordered to the Mediterranean, as the flag ship of Commodore Creese, vii: Commodore, S I*.

On the reverse side ** * wreath of laurei and ivy eneireling thirty one stars at the head and the American eagle at its base, with space enough between them in whieh to engrave the inscription the medal is to bear The artist to Mr W F X Kochler, of Baltimore, who has in tbia ease mad* one of the most beautiful naedala is the poaaesaion of cfata government.

It ia judged from the tenor of the letter that all were well in the squadron aa far aa was koown on the flag ship. Nothing waa aaid ia theae letters oooeerniog the misaing brigof. war Porpoise, which fact oonfirma the imprea si on that there can no longer be reaeonable hopea of bar safety, whioh prevails ia natal circles in this city. Persecuting Bounty Land Claims ? A Land officer haring written to the Department of the Interior to learn whether he may draw up ap plications for bounty lands, Ac., charging a small fee in each ease, was answered to day by the acting Seeretary, forbidding the practioe peremptorily on the part of a Government em ployee, aa a clear infraction of one of the ac* tions of the law for the peraecution of fraud* on the treaty of the United Btatea. An Army Cfficer Resigned.?Brevet Cap tain Schuyler Hamilton, Firat Lieut Bixth Infantry U. S. A., baa reaigned, to take effect May 31, 1855.

The amount of gold brought by the passengers ia very muoh larger than usual, and the remittance in all amounts to full two millions dollars in dust, coin, bars, and orders en the sub-treasury. " 1864."?According to the New Church llerald, the theory of Dr. Cumming, the elo quent Scotch preaeher, is that Christ will ccme in 1864?that the advent will be what is termed pre-millennial, or, in other words, that Chris*, will come before the milleniom, and the millennial glories will consist of Christ's personal reign on earth for a thou, tand years An Expensive Accident?The cost of the Norwalk disaster to the New York and New Haven railroad has been $280,000, and there tire Ftill unsettled claims against the company outstanding. It will not probably escape the liabilities and losses on account of that terri ble offiir abort of $300,000. A Model County.?The Greeasborough ^N. iC) Patriot states the remarkable fact that, (hough one of the oldest counties in the State, there has never been a conviction for murder nor a porson hanged within the limite.of Ran dolph county. There was an extensive fire in Balti more on Saturday night, on the corner of Baltimore and Howard streets, by which, it ia estimated, upwards of $200,000 worth of prep erty was deatroyed. Trial of Firb Engines.?The Deptford an i Independent Fire Companies, of Balti more, are to have a trial of their apparatus I this afternoon at S o'clock, in that oity. A Salute of one hundred and forty three gjns was fired by the anti-Know Nothings of Baltimore on Saturday night, in honor of the election of Mr. Wise to the gubernatorial ofQoe of the Old Dominion XST On Monday last the thermometer atood at 98 in the shade at Atlanta, Ga , and one ca?e of "sun stroke '' occurred. J3T During the five weeks ending the 1st instant, $4,556,634 worth of gold dust waa shipped from San Francisso. Philadelphia Finances appear to be in a hard way. Tho Ledger says :? It is pretty generally known that the finan ces of the oity are in a deranged and very on aatiafactory condition. Debt has crept upon un very fast within the past yoar, and liabili ties are now pending that most be provided fur, or the city suffer dishonor. On or before the first of July money must be bad from some quarter. Debts then falling due are dearly beyond the means of the treasury. Disgraceful Outrage in Church?Our little town is in quite a state of excitement, owing to a difficulty that oocurred last San day evening in ohurch. A very worthy, un offending and quiet citizen, Mr. MoClelland, went to eburoh and took a seat usually oceu 6ied by Mr. Mills Our worthy parson, Mr. rown. had commenced services, and was ex horting sinners, when Mr Milla entered and noticed Mr. M in hia seat, without saying a word be turned and left, but in a abort time retirned, and walking in a bullying manner in front of the reverend speaker, requested silence and ordered Mr Clellandto vacate hia Eent immediately. The latter not immedi ately complying, Mr Mills rushed forward, ftolled a pistol irom his pocket and presented t at the breast of McClelland He did not shoot however?but bullied round in a most disgraceftil manner, showing himself a per fectly contemptible villain, unworthy the oonfidonce or respect of any gentleman. He is probably good for a few months' "free) hoard" at Jackson.?Cleveland Herald, May 22 Thk French Minister of Foreien Af fairs?The New York Oourier - remarks on the recent ohaoge in the French cabinet: 44 The reason assigned for Drouyn l'lluys's resignation, that it proceeds from an unwil lingness to protract the war, is not worthy of much credit, inasmuch as it is not at all con sistent with the fact that he, as plenipoten tiary in the conference at Vienna, united with L >rd John Russell in rejecting the final an swer of Russia, and consequently must con sider the continuance oi the war a necersity Mr. Walewaki.
