We have avoided in the Star, as far as possible, and intend to avoid personal attacks, but we do not intend that the freedom and Independence of the press shall b? impaired by concessions to any such demands as those to whiah cur talented enthusiastic), high toned, courteous, entertain-* ing, ingenuouj, tra'hful and knowing neighbor refers, the object of which is apparent. We commented, in general terms, on the con duct of the Know Nothings of thia elty and their leaders as we deemed just, and are con vinced that we were oorrect, as will be appar ent in the legal proceedings designed to defeat the consummation of the frauds perpetrated by them in the recent election We specified no individual, leaving that to be done in the legal proceedings to which we refer above. If those who address as in so perem tor; terms, or any others, think we did th*vt in justice we cheerfully offer them the columns of the Star in which to disclaim their partici pation in the courses we intended to stigma tise, or for a proper defence ot themselves ? tnd we shall be gratiGed if they will make such use of them in a proper way The commissioners of the late election were acting in responsible public trusts, and*if we were to allow ourself to be deterred from oom menting on the manner of their fulfilling them, we should be recreant to our duty. If this course does not satisfy our talented, cour teous, amiable, entertaining, ingenuous, truth ful, and Know Nothing neighbor, and others feeling themselves aggrieved by anything in this connection appearing in the Star, we cannot respond otherwise, though its columns to them, or to ther irtels to which our so-tal ented, entertaining, courteous, entertaining amiable, ingenuous, trutbfu1, and Know Noth ing neighbor (vide the Virginia elec.ion) re fers Insufficiency of Ou ? Postal Treaty with Or at Britain ?As the rule now practiced in re?*rd to tnrufiiriently p-epaid letters in the I'ui'ed States and British mails Las boon il>e pubjec" of much discussion and complaint ii this country, we present britfly a history of the cue thai th * public may see how the rule complained of came to be enforced, snd also understand that the British office is alone responsible fer the oensure and complaintc 30 justly and universally expressed by correspon dents in ihis country und Great Britain. By treaty stipulation, the riogle rate of let ter postage between the two countries, (lo<-:ud ing the United States inland, tea. and Biitirh inland postage.) is twenty four cents, prepay ment optional; a single rate being coargt, hbls on letters not exceeding half an ounce in weight; doublo rate on letters over half an ounce, but not exceeding an ounce ; quadruple ra'e on letters over an ounce, bat not exceed ing two ounces, and sj oa according to weight, charging two additional rates for each cunce, or fraction of aa ouace over the first ounce It is also stipulated ?' that it shall not be per mitted to p^y lee* than the whole combined rate," which was originally construed to mean a single combined rate of twenty-four cents and the practice of the exchange offices of both eoontries was made to eonform to that c instruction, by crediting eacft full rate of twenty four cents prepaid, and dieregardirg fractional parts of sing e rates, ODtil the year 1S52 a' which time information was received from the British ('doe that they construed the provision differently, and that le'tera prepa d a single rate, and liable to one or more addi tional ratei, should be treated as trAo//y un p*id, the partial pre; ay meat, even when it amounted to an entire rate of twenty-four cents, being ditregarded, and entirely lost to the sender. The British office at the same time proposed to modify the treaty so as to give credit lor alt prepayments, even the tmallest fractions of single rates, which was declined by our d? partment, because of t&e impracticability of crediting each country with ftt proper proportion of the postage in such cases, and the consequent complication of thesecounte; and also, beoause the addi tional labor and embarrassment resulting from such a ehange, would fall almost exclu sively upon our exohsnge Affixes, as a very large m.<jori y of short and improper prepay ments are made in the United States, on so count of the large number ot postmasters, and the impossibility of keeping them generally and fully instructed in regard to the rates ef foreign postage The British oflee then insisted, as it were, by wy of retaliation because their proposal was not aoeepted, that the rigid and illiberal oonstraction of the clause above referred to, should be strietly carried out, and instructions were accordingly given to their exchange offices to treat all letters from the United States, partially pre-paid ia the same manner as if they had been wholly unpaid. This rule has been enforced since that date, and the British office is alone responsible for snob an illiberal regulation so ja3tly oomplaincd of by correspondents and unwarranted by a fair and oommon sense construction of the treaty. 8ait? Commenced ?Some twelve saits were commenced on Tuetday last by persons de prived of their rights as citiseos of Wash ington on the previous Monday at the polls, by the Commissioners of the Elections We understand that some two hnndred and ninety more such suits are about to be insti tuted Before the agent*, in oarryisg oat the resolves of the seoret proscri.itivo political oath-bound society, get to the end of their tether, such of them as have any thing to lose by setting at naught the decisions of tho Cir cuit Court of the Diatriot of Co ambit, to de. prive oititena ef their rights under thl char ter of oar Corporation, will doabtlscs realise that their eenduot amounts to playing a game oostiaf far more than it comes to. Intareating f.-om fun FrancUco ?We learn | from a let^r from Sin Francisco, dated May 16th alt., that tbe new oaftom house there ia rapidly approaching completion, being in a Tair way to be ready for oooupancy as early as the let of October next, and it is expected that the new appraiser's store will be com pletod bj the 1st of January next. It is ?idly needed, as at present the govern ment accommodations for the inspeotion and appaisement of good*, and more especially of Chinese goods, in which there is already a Tory large and rapidly increasing commerce at that port, are wholly insufficient except by and through a heavy and otherwise unneces ?iry expenditure for additional olerieal and other la^or. The principal amount of the revenue cf that port is from duties paid on spirits, wfces and segars. It is expected that when thelgovernment officers get into the building tie government is oansing to be erected then, the expanses of the customs de partment a\ that port will be still further and very greatly reduoed The mict provee to be inadequate so far to eoin all the money wanted thfcre for business circulation, that still being, for the most part, the bars coming from che three private assaying estab. ishments ia operation there, ?ot long since, toe mint slopped work for a week, owing to the failure! of its contrao cr for furnishing the aoids required to be uted in the establish rnent. Thi mist should be capable of turn ing out at Voast five millions of dollars monthly, to be as efficient as it should be. American coin, at the date of the letter from which we obtain these facts, waa worth a quarter per centum premium. ? he Kinney Expedition?The Union " by aulhorit r," contradicts the statement of Capt. Graham of the steamship Uni ed States, that he was < naouraged by letters from members | of the Ci binet to engage in the Kinney scheme, being in ormed in the said letters that the Gov ernment saw nothing illegal or improper in it. This eta jment the Union declares to be false The troth is, that Qraham went i^to the scheme < a speculation upon the representa tion of p rties previously in it, and has lost money b; ? the operation. The story about hi* being en ^ouraged to go into it as above ex plained, * evidently trumped up to satisfy the inecbanidi whose wages for labor in connec tion with the preparations for the expedition are not forthcoming. As for the distinguished bead of the affair, on the same day on wbi^h the Government received a telegraphic dis patch announcing that a bench warrant had been issued far his arrest, his bail having been forfeited, he was again arrested, and the court, on the representations made by his ccuntel, released him on his own security to appear the next morning. The morning came, but to Col. Kinney was forthcoming The ?ecoad bench warrant for his arrest will hardly find/him, we presume. The Philadelphia Conspiracy ?The New York ll-rald ol yesturday gives what it vouches is a list of tho Know Nothing deie gptcs in the great secret Sanhedrim now hold ing in Philadelphia. The abolitionist Wilson, of Muuuchu'atts, is amongst them and many others of bis kidney. Mark?Wilson said in his Vermont letter he was glad that Mr. Wiso wf.a eieciod, as it would abolitionists the Know Nothing party. The list is a curiosity. The delegates are, it appears, the fag ends of all ia;rs, defunct whigs, abo;itionists, disappointed odioe seeking Democrats, defeated candidates, disgraced jud^e?: "? no.loo iliis OOUC t ave is composed of some who, as anti rntison*, a few years ago denounced sr.cret to oieticf as horrible. Ac , Ao. We should not be surprised if some of the Southern men in he bjdy sold themselves, carcase and soul, to Wilson A Co ; but if ths abolitionists pay ronch they will get cheated. Such a precious *et of political scape gallows's have rarely oodactei together in this country, since tbe toiies of tbe revolution held night meetings in | secret places to plot the overthrow of Wash ington and our foreign allies that were then lee of liberty. A Noteworthy Incident ?One of the Know No'hing commissioners of election on Monday, last, while refusing the votes of hi* follow ci iiets declared to be entitled to the right of ?uflrage here by the Circuit C urt, having re caiv? d without question the ballots of the very lime men last year, when acting in the same capacity, received and placed in the ballot bo* the vote of his own Know Nothing son, who be must have knowu not to be en titled to vote, also, according to a decision of the court. This is a specimen of tbe outrages | ordered by the lodges to be perpetrated upon the rights of the citiiens of Washington legally entitled to vote in our recent munioipal elej. tion, which will not go unwhipped of jastice by our court of law The Milwaukia Custom House?The Treas ury Department have now under consideration the various proposals for building the new Custom Douse, at Milwaukie, Wis.
