EVENING STAR WASHINGTON CITY: WlDffSSDAY AFTERHOO* May :<0 SFIBIT OF THE MDSTUHe PBX8S The InisJltfenctr commence# the pnblioa* ti?* of important documents bearing on the reoent V ienna Conference, designing to con tinue them until it presents its reader* with a *11 history of the negotiation which resulted In the present prospeot of one of the longest . est wars which ever occurred in Eu rope. The Un*cn again discusses the illiberality of Britain with reference to international postafe ratee, giving another otaapter of the history of the effort* of the United States Polt Offloe Department to reduce those ohargea to reasonable rates, and shewing that the otyect of Britain has been, in the negotiations that hare taken place on the subject, little more than to effect, if possible, the introduction of British printed books into this oountry duty free The Union farther congratulate# the oonntry on the fact?demonstrated in a re cent speeoh of M. Lusuriaga, the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs?that the Spanish gownmenr is too sensible to place it3elf in the matter ef the El Dorado affair, on the un tenable ground as to iu rights originally as turned in this country by the National Intel. ligmctT. The Union farther repudiates Major An drew J. Doselson's present political position, which was hardly necessary. Major D. has been "hostile " ever since his want of com mon sense compelled his nummary ejection from the position of editor of the Democratic 'gin in this city, at the instance of members of Congress representing much more than the moiety of " the party " General Jackson's tuition of, and affeotion for, Donelson, though it made for him, temporarily, a conspicuous peeitien, failed to endow him with the brains nature has denied him. This accounts for his present silline<s is imagining tha: his opinion on public affairs weighs a feather with any of political integrity who is connected with " the party " in Tennessee The Superintendent's Statement. He invite attention to the statement of Mr. Dougherty, the superintendent of the Wa?h ington Monument, to be found on our first page to-day It exhibits in glaring light the true ch^-aeter of Kr-ow Nothirgism and the man ner in whioh it essays to effsct its ends in this oommunity. We seed hardly add that it is in excellent keeping with tho recent acts of the majority of our municipal oouncils, in re using their opponents any representation waatever on four of the seven boards of elec tion commissioners, and subsequently refusing to pais a resolution requesting those boards to canvass the ballots in the presence of one or two of their respectable opponents, and to re ' rn the tickets rote J as pari of tho rcord The Virginia Slecti -n.

Rot 10 Bod ?A friend who vooohM for tho youth who essayed to atdrosi the assemblage opposite Brown's hotel, on Saturday night, from a dry goods box plaoed in mid-street, assures as that the person, whoever he was, who oried out that in awaiting foreigners among us, he was assailing bis own parents, misrepresented the youth's origin; as his pa rents are both native born and of revolution ary stock. And farther, that at heart and in oharaeter, the (ad is really promising; inso much as he respects himself and others in hit walk in life. And still farther, that whatever may have escaped his liprin the heat of the excitement of that excited and exciting even, ing. under other ciroumstaoces no ooe would more rcrupulomsly refrain thaa from wholesale detraction of any clw of his fellow citite ii. We cheerfully give him the benefit of this statement in his behalf, and sinoerelj hope that he may (as experienee tempers his enthusiasm and turns hit genius into good sense, a* it doubtless will) in time oome to ap preciate the faet that good Americanism does not ooneist in hussaing for the stars and stripes, and making a fuss generally, when other people may be improperly and unfairly disturbed oy it. But that a just appreciation of lie rights of all others is tho very founda tion of the righ's of American citiienship We live under laws of equality in their priv lieges, which are expeoted to be cheerfully obeyed by all without the intervention of fjrce to insure their observation. Our coun try has been brought to its present stato of re markable prosperity, and our people and their liberties to their present remarkable condition of development, by and through the labors ef the hands, hearts and minds of people of al most all known white races. Every battle field in which the American flag has been un furled, from the contest at Lexington to that of Cerro Gordo, has been whitened by tho booes of foreigners, who fell in the cause of our country in numbers greatly more than a fair ratio when the preportionate number of foreigners in this country is taken into the es timate. We are indebted to the genius, pa tient labor, and superior attainments of for eigners for much of what is termed Ameri can superiority in branches of the arts science, literature, &o. Under such circum 1 stances, so fine a youn^ fellow as the you.Lful speaker on the occasion referred to has been credibly represented to us to be, cannot live I many years longer without learning to judge of men and things by which he is surrounded by practical commcnsense standards, rather I than from the frothy tepreeenta'ions cf de signing politicians and sinister office seeking I demagogues. The Secretary of the Treasury -The Union, I in a complimentary notioe of Mr Qeorge S. I Houston, published in its issue of yesterday I morning, does great injustice to the Secretary I of the Treasury, we are persuaded wholly I without intention so to do, if but from the faat I of iti conhdential relations to the Administra- I tion, which are wholly incompatible with an I attack on one of its members, than whom there I has been no other person in the Government of I the United States, who has oaroed. in so brief I a period of public service, so high a reputa I tion tor enlarged capacity as an Executive I statesman, and for practical abilties in the I conduct of the Department of the Government I committed to his charge, whiex are univer-1 sally admitted to be working wonders for the I public and general prosperity. While we I cheerfully admit the experience cf the gentle-1 man so praised by the Unton, and the purity I of his intentions, we do not think taat his I course on the tariff question was a happy one I for the public service He aimed, it appeared I to us. to make a Houston tariff; while the Sec- I retary aimed to alter the schedule of duties on I imports to accord with what, in his judgment I upon the great mass of information accumu I latlng in his Department, he honestly conceived I to be for the best interest of the whole country I To differ lrom the head of the Treasury De I partment in his position, so widely as Mr I Houston did. sd vehemently, and to be at I times, so indiscreet as Mr Houston was in I his manifestation of that difference, was a pal-1 pable insurance that no change in the rates of I duties whatever would be made by the last I C -ngress, however much a change might be I needed by the exigencies cf the public ser-1 vice We are not for having a member of I Congress servile to his friends in the Execu-1 t:.ve braLCh of tho Government. Nor are we I endorsers of the propriety of having the chair I man of the Committee of Ways and Means. I who should be in a measure the exponent of I tae views of the head of the Treasury Depart I ment on the fiscal exigencies of the Govern I ment (when placed in his position by the I friends of those in power,) the most active and I avowed opponent of the policy of the Secre I tary of the Treasury. | A Cock and Ball Story ?Our talented, I courteous, truthful, entertaining, and ingen. I uous neighbor yesterday published a !anny ao- I oount of an imaginary order from the President I to nil the Government employees here to vote I the anti-Know Nothing tiaket. We need hard. I ly say that this order was coined in the prolific I mint of our neighbor itself. We, however, I take this opportunity to remind our talented, I courteous, amiable, truthful, entertaining and I ingenuous neighbor that it has been long I avowing that one of the main purposes of its I party is to prosoribc every man, high or low I in position, who takes the liberty of enter-1 taining anti-Know Nothing political senti-1 ments Under these ciroumstances. if our I neighbor is blessed with an ounce of brains in I addition to the many admirable qualities for I which we give it credit above, it will perceive | that the principle of self-defence must neoes-1 sarily make the administration chary of con- I tinning the privilege of enjoying its favors to I those, who, in their political action, aid the I avowed purpose of effecting the removal of I every anti Know Nothing mechanic, clerk, I messenger, or laborer from the service of the I Government. This is the game for which our I neighbor has avowedly played ever since it I was born. Those in the public service who I may choose to play at it, will be too manly to I complain if they loose, we take it for granted I A Vow Commander of tho Home Squad-1 ron ?The secretary of the Navy has given I Commodore Hiram Paulding, the present pop I ular, accomplished, and gallant commandant I of the Washington navj-yard, preparatory or* I ders lor the command of the home squadron, I Commodore McCauley's connection with it I boing temporary. It is presumed in naval circles here that I the San Jacinto Is on her way to the United I Ktatee 3hoy Bit them?tree?it teems that the! aocount of the way in whioh the joint stock | par tsars and employ ees in the office of oar taltnted, amiable, courteous, entertaining, knowing and Ingenuous neighbor recently got bit in batting on Pago, whioh we published on Saturday last, was incorrect in some unim portant particulars The gentleman frott Paga, who oama down with lots of money in his pocket, was a ? Wise ' W hig who had never b?*n & member of a Know Nothing lodge there or elsewhere, though he felt satisfied that the report made to their State Council that the Page County Lodge consisted of more than four hundred members wis untrue, there mver having been more than fifty persons in ft, in his belief. He bet therefore *n his judg ment of the want of trntfe in the offioial Know Nothing report, in whioh the Know Nothings cf Washington, Alexandria and Baltimore, placed implioit confidence; betting on it, and, of course, burning their ingots. It was upon suoh official statements as that from Pfcge, that the impressioh arose in the know Nothing ranks, that they had 72,000 members in Vir ginia; which impression so pertinaciously and enthufiastioally sworn to by our ingenuous neighbors, cost its friends the $66,000 they won in this region (over the left) from the friends of Wise. Beware ?We call the attention of our anti Know Nothing fellow-citisens to theneoessary means determined on last night by the anti Know Nothing citiiens of Washington, to pro tect their rights from possible frauds under tho lower board of the Washington Councils' refusal to request that one anti-Know Nothing be permitted $o witness the canvass of the votes in each ward, at the neit election, tho boards of commissioners in four of the wards being, eaoh man of them, also a member of | an oath bound political association.

Bnmifrt, the talented and inde pendent editor of that h'ghly popular and extensive I v read paper, th - Christian Banner, pnb'ished at Fredericksburg, Va., in hi* editorial ol the 18th o> I May, 1855. thus speaks of HAMPTON'S VEGE TABLE TINCTURE: "Home time ago we merely al tid^d to Hampton's Vegetable Tincture. with a promise of r.oticin? more particularly tne ;r?-at r.lief we have oursoir derived from its use During our collegiate COWse, | ow ing to sedenti-ry habits, we became quite dyspep tic, and wen* very much troubled with v? rtig??

We had taken strong medicines, observed greni particularity in our diet, and all to no purpose We had despaired ol ever recovering our health, when a female fri?nd of ours importuned us to *et * bottle of Hampton's Vegetable Tincture, assuring us thu we would find great relief from its use. We briefly | repli'-d, "toe >rouU not give a dollar Jor all the Tinc ture Hampton ever made, so far as oar own individ ual healih was concerned." \\ e had no faith in it | nor anv other medicine in effecting a cure on us In the kindness of her heart, how ever, without con suiting us about it, she sent and got one bottle and urced us to accept of it, and for her sake, as it could I not possibly injure us, to use it according to direc tion. For the high regard we had for ber aud her act of kindness, we promised to do so. And with | out exaggeration we can truly say that before re had used the contents of one bottle we felt like a | new man We u>ed, consecutively, from ten to fifteen bot tles. We were afraid to (tve it up, fearing our old diseases might return.
