KVENING STAR. W A sHINGTON U1TY: WKDFESDAY Am&HOOR June 6 sn;.4r at ihx pees* The Union notioes Mr Soule'i letter, in jeiterday's Intelligencer, and adds : 44 We regret to see, from Mr Soule'a letter. that be id laboring under the impression that Mr. Perry's 4- treacber j" secured him "en courage ment and 'upport in the State Depart men* at Washington. We have every reason to believe thai in entertaizing each an im ?rr?-ior. Mr Soule does injustice to the State ?epartment, an 1 we cannot bat hope that he will discover and oorreot his error before he Oomes oat w.tu his history of hid n.ission Now, none are so blind as those who will not tee, such we take to be Mr. Soule's case ?u*p;o>tus by nature, because originally trained in the school of European secret politi cal soc.eties, he has taken it into his head that the 5-tate Department was his enemy, founiing that opinion only on th; well known fact that the 'Secretary of State did not ap prove ot the policy wbioh he (Mr. S ) saw fit to es-ay without instructions to th&t end as the Spanish policy of this Government. Mr S , thought be saw proof of this fact in Mr. Mercy's recep.ion of a letter from Mr Perry, which was not even derogatory to him, \ man of common tense ??ill at once understand that ? he Stale Departuiout U itsyjusrole f r letters written, not f.0m, but to it, as in thii case It i notorious that the offensivs correspondence was not made the basis of the least aciior, on part 0f the Depir men:. having oeen consigned with, perhaps, a hup. dreti other letter- against individual employe.' of the Department abroad, to the tomb of ob livion When its existence was forgotten, it " w%* acc:d'-ntall v and unintentionally brought to M* Sonle's notice by some clerk in the De partment, and was eeiscxi on by t:iia a? proof of the ca;e his disappointed ambition was de sirens .f making against the Secretary. Hm mif'i^n had proved a very da.*hi g fail ure. indued, owing to his want of discretion, and his effort to make himself, personal y. ra her 'ban the succefs of the policy laid down in his ins;ructions, thi chief feature of hi* mi-eian In casting around tr get cut of his scrape for fcuch it was. bo seii?s up>n the Perry letter-which was written without the foreknowledge or eolici ation of the Depart ment?an?i Mr arcy' undisguised wan' of sympathy vith the S ulei'ws of his agent's p*?'icy, to make them the excu es for bis epien did failure in Madrid aforesaid. This is the whole story in a nut shell. We thus present it to our readers that they may understand, in advance. the true stafe of the caaa upon wbi h Mr Suule announces that he is about to ccme before the public in a book. We write as we have d?,ne b'oove, without consultation with or even tie knowledge of any one what eve*; and only on our knowledge of the cir cuir.s*9.nce3 of the case, which are likewise kno\?n to hundreds of unofficial persons, mai iy through Mr. S >ule's conversations on the sub ject with a lar^e number of his friends The Intelligencer comments .,n the instruc tiens given to C;mroodc-e McC^ulty. when that cffi:er wr.s ?i;r?t down to command the ?iulf sqoaJr?>r, asd maintains that they em brace a virtual acknowledgment of the ri^ht of viBttartcn on thr__bi/h ?e?" ?.T~ ???? ? ~.i4clrni question the editor hjs. 4 Here it w.Il bs seen, the Secretary speaks of ou'rage 'perpetrated on a vessel tight fu'-x/ byirtvf* ..ttr Jt-tff.'

What ar-t wo Comicg To ? ?The conduct of tae tecre: pjliti.'al org-.nisation in this city in - connection wich our recent municipal election, was nark d with quite as many and signal viclations of law atd personal rights as it has ventured in any other quarter of the coua?.ry, not excepting on ihenccasion of the gutting of the cLuich in >ewark, New Jersey, whioh was the w >ik of Lritish tu^jicts acting in strict uniou with it (Snow Nothingism;) in the Cin er nati rkts, and in the acts of the recent Mas sseausetts legislature With a full knowledge th*. their organisation were in a very deciJcd asiacrity in this city, they set to work to carry thit tlection by and through atjy and e>ery posfirle violation of public rights whatever, ihos. they conceived the plan of deliberately depriving their opponeaU of the never be ore rtfused i ight of a representation on the boards of eltctioo commis-icnars, a thing never bo fbre m'er.'.ijLally done anywnere else under this Uovemment This right ia so sacred that ia it .e or ieu of the States its observ ance is rscurei by constitutional provisions TLcir nest mcve was to select for these one aided election boa-ds?in the wards where they ki ? w it wou d ba nccessary to practice out rages, illegal acts, and frauds to give them cuccess men. f^r the most part, of a class who 'jfereLtter beiore entrusted with the discharge of any such re p >nsible fuoctions in this com munity?igco ant men, of narrow minds and big ;ttd : rejudices. many of them with few re ipo&'ibiliiies to the public; as they arc with out aught to lose by civil suits to recover daaagei for the wrongs they might perpetrate individual citnens. The better to shield them and to encourage them in doing what they were selected to do, the Know-Nothing Council board refused to request them either to return the ballots voted, to be made of rec ord, cr to pe mit respectable individuals to witness the counting cut of the votes, which always heretofore has ke-n done in Washing ton. On the Saturday night before the election these men met in conclave, and received in structions emanating frt m their secret lodge*, doub'less, as to what they should do to carry the election by fraudulent and violent in fractions of the legal rights of their fellow citisens opposed to them. The recult of those ins.ructions was seen in the refusal of the commit*ione.s in the First Ward to put cither n?ai of thirty aeven illegal votes on their oath, as reque.ted by the challenger, in the hope 'hi' hj so refusing they m*ght screen '.Lose persons from the punishment meted out I 'irder our laws for a violation of *be eta u'e again:! voting in s ward wheretn the v.?ter ha? not a legal residence In the same ward they refused to take the vote? of sixty five oitiiens who were unquestionably en titled to vote under formal deoisions of the United States Ciroait Court, some of them made on the very day of the eleotion, of which they were formally notified. The refusal to respect the rights ot their opponents as thus adjudged by our higher court, was pre arranged on the p~evious Saturday night, as explained above, and was general in all the wards of the oities It amounted to a bold assumption on the part of the seoret pro scriptive political organiiation. of authority in and over this city, superior to that of our oourts of law; a circumstance until then, en tirely unheard of in this community It turned out that the assessor had mile error in re turning the d* lm of more or less voters on the other tide, blu none in the names know Nothing voters, and in toe face ol the law these commiseion&rs deprived tbo.ein whose mines suoh e rors had been made, of their right ot -Hien-jbip, in more than one case with a positive and offensively announced refusal to assign any reason for so doing. The cour 'wt yea; decided that a legal voter whose r;.me had accidentally been omitted upon the poll list was not deprived of his right to vols t>y the laches or fraudulent cesign of the as ses<or. iu the First and some other waria tnis decision of our highest court was treated by the election boards, as though it was of no more authority than the opinion of any pair jof professional groggery rowdies who g>t hoarse on Monday night last on execratie whisky and huuas for "Strn T' So also was I t ?e court's subsequent decision, that ajl cit ? tiers naturalised up to the time of offering their votes are fully en'itlel to exercise the elective franchise here sot at defiance. In their ignorance and improper partisanship thoy alio refused ihe votes of hundred*, whose votes their | friends had taken a year ago, when they were given for th?ir candidates of that occasion I They also aseumed the right, in s-me wards, j to rejec: the votes of all foreign born citizens whore naturalisation paper* w?re taken out elsewhere ?han in tte District of Ctlumbia, and al.<o to reject, on frivolous grounds the j votes of persons (native and foreign-born) of heavy business interests among us, and owners [of large real estates Lere, accumulated by | honest industry and dis>ingushed intelligence who hal notoriously bee-i voters in Washir.g | ton for from ten to th ?ty years, among them being men who had long served as members o: the Washington Council! In the Third Ward, ! ^bile voting their own friends with celerity. | they so delayed the leception of the Votes cf their opponents as that when they closed the I polls there were from 100 to 1?0 voters still in the lin* to deposit their ballots, hardly one j of whom was their own political friend. They received the votes of mora or leja oi their friends there a' a point diferent from the regular votirg place and of oocrse out of their turn; thus securing aj many a? possible for their candidates to the cxclu-ion of those wao were opposed to them In this ward par ticularly they received the votes. ?n certifi c?tes, of a nucuber of per;oi.d uoktJown to an} | one in the war! on the ether a do. all of *hom were rushed through the process, in striking with the manner in which th-T treated i-tviuiwg voters iney .-prang I !up there in an instant, and, we presume have disappr-ared quito a, suddenly. It, this ward the number of v.tes polled was | porno hundreds less than in the Fourth Ward W'Ay was this the case, with fromouc hundrtd I to one hundred acd filty anti Kuow Nothing voters demanding their right to deposit their baliots when the window was closed on them by self evident pre-arrangement ? Were thfy not as competent to receive, determine, and record the votes proffered, aj the commissioner* jof the Fourth Ward? We mention these facts to illustrate the means throu?h ?hich the reported result I was brought about, and to prove to our oitisecs j that the secret proscriptivc political associa tion has deliberately essayed to destroy t <lr rights, in uaarj-ing in their midst a superiority | of authority to that of our regularly constituted acd he-etofore always respected court of iaw whose decisions it spuras as not worth a rush j when standing in the way of their effort to' control our municipal affairs by fraud, vioioncj and illegal means 4 i-ranee in the d*ys of her first revolutiol was under the control of sccrei political ,-ooiL | tie*?Jacobin clubs-at first identical ii ?heir aims and acts with the American Kbott Nc^ I ?2g lodges Indeed, those clubs re?pee ed^sfe leBa righ-.i of society much longer than {hey have been respected by those who are thus | carrying out the secret resolves of the lodges in our mids-; for they were originally ocn tilled by men cf a much higher order of ia. telleot greater experience in publio aff irs | moie adroitness, and much more true public spirit than are poetised by the preachers of ru;ned personal reputations, prcfeosiona gamblers and groggery loafers, who form the ruling nucleus of the 1 ,dg.9 in tbb region Ihe clubs however eventually wont from one illegal step to another, until they trenched all I ranco in the blood of her best citixenj, com mitting more atrocious violations of public and private rights and murders in a single year, than had occurred in the kingdom by nominal authority of law in any hundred years of her previous history at a Siata governed by a monarch with unlimited powers Vtrily the oocurrenm of Monday last at the polls in thM city, show that those who have somethiig really at stake in sooiety should awake to the doty of the vindication of their rights. The End Ou't ?We hear that the Govern ment, this morning, received by telegraph in telligence of the abiquatulation of Mf3a-? Kinney and Fabeos, forfeiting their bail Bench warrants for their apprehension as fugitives from justice have been issued Thua the Nicaraguan freebooting expedition ex pi odes. This, to us always anticipated, term laation of this affair, forces on our mind seriou? reflections upon the so unexpected course of th * Journal of Comttrrcr. always heretofore conservative and considerate in all its positions on public affairs For some time it was turnea into a sort of puffing machine of the scheme which a man, with half an eye. might have comprehended to involve features suoh as should make it anything but popular in the office. The fact that it met the em ?s * !?i ^''^PP'^ation of the iJovernment here have b-en sufficient to induoe the iJeoure*^ LomnUrc? to have hesitated in r<r: vr0 ??. * i tku polct ?.?ld willlogij wi|1> ,*?7 * ",0 to b. d.dg?.d fcr I the extension of our commerce. Ae uLlesg ' well satisfied that it involved circumstances j maklftg e>*rly lllej.'l The truth ii, the Jiurn il was essentially humbugged, and that, too, by very shallow parties, indeed lh* Journal is ?? ganging the aim* gal'" with rererenoe to the Kendall affair in New < I Orleans, oontending that the indicted ex Post-1 muter is a viotim of an official conspiracy, having its head here, in the person of the Seoretary of War. who it represents, as dis ! liking K. on account of that persons promi ! nence as a Union party politician All this is exceedingly silly, ?9 Rn instant's reflation j on the fact that no administration would seel j to bring itself into disgrace by nesd!eea!y j rroviog its appointees to be criminals, will satisfy any clear mind. The Journal harps on what jt regar la as the insufficiency of the testimony in the Marshall Hanson oase, (tf Kendall) as though that were lBd only poSnl in the offences o^argti on him-Kendall. Tts? editor has surely overlooked the faot that th?5 grand jury of the discriot of Louisiana have presented Kendall on their oaths as being guilty of other robberiei previous to that of the Marshall Hanson case Now, it strikes us that the prompter of the Journa' in this matter is no other thai its prompter in the Kinney o ?se, an individual imbued, from former assooiations, with srath western views of the propriety of fillibutcisg, who is. besides, one of the sureties on Kci dall s boni to the Post Office Department, if the editor will tafce the trouble to put the question plumply to its prompter, the reply will embrace an admission of the fact we s ate above, which renders him a vary unsafe a lvigor, indeed, if the Journal of (Jommrret is ^coking, as we certainly believe it to be, only to do justice and pro'ect the public it* t?rcct in this case as in all others That the wisest, most cxporienccd, -'nd thosa of the purest iutentions are at times deceived is proved past per.idventure in the course of the Journal of t ommtree on theso Kinney ex pedition and ex-Postmaater Kendall oases Tho Firet Bloci of the Revolution ?Wo take the following from the New York Mirror of Monday last: learn by telegraph thut blond has been | sp'Med in tne streets of Portland?the birth place i i Maine Lawisci?in consequence oi a ?ipt grov.ing ou- of an attempt to enforce the Liquor Law It seems that Neal Dow. the VIa>or of the city and the godfa her of Pro hitittioiiifm, had bought Some sixteen hundred dollars worth of liquor, on specuia ion, antic; gating 'he act ion of the ci y in establishirg I an agency f r the sa!o of it; tut the liquor rs [ maimng on his hands several citrons en'ered ?vmpluint, and a warrant v^as issued for the *ei7.ure . ftho liquor, when the Mayor callei a 'pec;al meeting of the aldermen, pnd a vote was pa?~ei to purchase it for the ci:y At ten o clock on Saturday night a noisy mob as-emblcd about the building u*ed as the city liquor agency, and a tempted to break n and de.?r<-y tie liquor.
