The action of I hi Clrouit Court in tha Croaen Cut ?We find on further inquiry itfcat we were wrong on Saturday in oansuring the Clerk of the Conrt for failing to lend oat the oopiee of the opinion delivered bj Mr Justioa Dunlop in this oase, in whl.h hi* colleague, Mr. Justice Morsell, coincided, generally, as announced by him from the bench, after say lng that the lists having pas?ed from the handiof the register of tha Corporation, Ue Court bad no power to grant the writ of man iamofc prayed* An opinion of the J adges being extra judical, cannot be certified with the seal of the Court aa a distinct, paper So the clerk W<ia right la leaving it to find its way to the oommiasionera of tha eleotion without hia seal. We therefore mike the amende honorable to him, for attributing to hia Enow Nothing sen. timents hia action in the premises. Those who were struggling to prevent the commissioners from l-eing formally ruled to carry out the Court's opinion of the law, refused to agree that the question as to the righta of the re jected votera ahould be formally raised, by consent; so aa to prevent an order for the re ception of the votes above referred to from being served on the oommisaionera. It was evidently rhns intended to enable the commis sioners to allege the excuse of ignorance of tho view* of tha Court upon the law, in palliation of their act in refusing voles wbioh the Circuit Court held to bo legal. These views wera as follows: "1- That a foreigner naturalised ainoe the 31st December last, who possesses the other quali^cations required by tho charter, is en titled to vote at tbe present election. u 2. That an alien who was a resident of the city of Washington previous to the 31 at of December, 1S54, wis entitled to be eurolled od tba fch >ol tax li.t " 3 That the tax lists having passed oat of tbe hands of the register, be has no du'y in regard to them to perform; that the tax lists nre now in the hands of the oommiiiioners of election, whose right and duty it is to receive the vo'.es of person* within the foregoing de icription,. and having the other qualification required by the charter The mandamus is refused." The instant this opinion wag given by the court 1!3 cubatanoe went like wi Id-fire over the city, and wv kr.cwn in an hour to aver; porsni around tho poll? in the least interests I in it i h?idca that the Know Nothing commission era, alone of all the thousand e? deeply inter ??ted in it aa aettling the moat important quej tion in isaue in their action, were ignorant of it, ia aimply prepoateroua, and proves the truth of the adage that none are bo deaf aa those who wi'I not hear The three anti-Know No. thing commissioner*;, in the Filth. Sixth and Seventh Wardu, having oo behests of an oath bound, eooret, prosoriptiTe, political society to carry out, were not of the deaf class; aud accor dingly they heard of this opinion of the Cir caitCourt very shortly after it was delivered Ihey knew that the Court were final arbiters of thejaw here, and that in pur*u?nrte of their oaths aa Commis*ioners of the Election, t*eir du'y was to accord to all who offered votes their legal rights; fnd that our highest ccurt *ras tb* tribunal whose views of tbcae rigbii* should rightfully be carried .jut by all who had accepted their posHona for tho honest a-d feithfai protection and accordince of the rights of all citiiens of Wcrbington rather, than a? instruments to accomplish the scheme of an oath-bound, secret, political society to deprive legil voteio of their legal righta. b^ cau~e they wi.u'd not vote ab the said sooie v wished. No am worthy to be trusted with even tha temporary adjadicaiioa of hi* neigh bor a righta would allsge a pretenoo ?<t" a ju? tifioation for 59Uing at naught the opinien ? f ?ha highest law oourt, on tho ground that a lawyer or lawyers, tuernbera ot an oath-bound secret, proscriptive, political society had given an opinion of the law at varianoe with that of the court The setting up of any such pretense in itself embraces proof that he who alleges it, ac cepted the sacred trust of a oommissionr.r ot r'ae election only for iho p re-deter mined pu pose of defrauding ae many as posi'ible of hi- fellow oitisena who differed from him of their rights, in flagrant disregard of the obligation of his oath to decide the ques tion*. coming before him without fear or favor, according to law. This whole case involves many grave feaiures. and proves that under tha discipline of this oath bonnd, aeeret, political society in our midst, men who have heretofore held up their heads among u* as persons entitled to the respect and conli denee of their fellow citiiens, pay not the slightest regard to their oaths when that course m?y bo neoesnry to enable them to de prive their fello*-citiaena of their rights un der the law in obedience to the behest of tho a ciety of which tho never-to-be forgotten Lowell witne?e was a mtmber. These are grave matter* indeed, for the reflection of those citisens of Washington who hold that our law Court is the judge of the law, whoso opinions should bo respected by those called on temporarily to adjudicate the righti of this community, and who have miod, character experience and patriotism suffloior.t to compre hend the vital importance of having our affaiis administered according to law, rather than aooording to the diotation of bigots, fanctics, ignorant men, and rowdies, who assume tha right to conspire in socret against their neigh bora The new President ?So the Know Nothing National Council on the sixth ballot for a President of 'the order" for the ensuing year, threw Barker overboard?body and hreeohea Darker was supported by the South with al most entire unanimity, his 5J votes coming almost entirely from the slaveholding mem bers of tba convention Dr. Bartlett, of Ken tuoky, who was elected in Barker s stead was the candidate of Wilson A Co ?that is, of the anti-slavery wing of the order We presume be joined Kenneth Raynor *who aspires to their nomination for the Vice Presidency next year) in advocating in the convention a reso lution pledging the Order for the repeal of the Nebraska-Kanaas bill, and perhaps of the fn gitive slavejiw; at the advosates in the con vention for the repeal of both these bills com posed bis entire majority force there. A fine eotertLinment this, for the people of the South Had Virginia eleoied Fiournoy it ia probable that " the order" would not so aoon have hoisted abolition colors, and put itself en tirely underiho dcution of Senator Wilson, of Massachusetts. But Flournoy's defeat means, plainly, that " the order" may not hope to laceaed at the South. So it electa at once tc spread its net so as to play boldly for popular favor in anti?slavery regions. 4. n Koneat Upiiion?In our ainnieipai e'ec -on of iwO the Commissioner! cpplitd to the Corporation oounsel ft.- iafurmatior as to who were and who were net entitled ?o vol* in Wa>hiqgion. We have procured a eopy of that functionary s opinion, tendered on that occasion, which admit* oitliens naturalised on the day of the election to exercise the right of auffrage here if they have the other requi site qualification* Under thia opinion an a guide, no qaeation being then made before the higher and binding authority of the Circuit Court, all oititana ever twenty-one years of age preoeding Slit of December, naturalised at any time previoua to offaring their votes, were permitted to exerciae their righta with out queation, if they had the other requiaite qualification of a twelvemonth reaidenoo in Washington Neither the Corporation coun sel nor Commissioners dreamed of questioning ih&t right up to so reoently. The -'opinion" we publish below provea that, to qaeation it, was an afterthought oaly, arising out of no change in the law, but from the growth of se cret assoeiationa in our midst, sworn to make war on the oanstitntional guarantee of re ligious and ciril equality among all citisens of the United States It will also be per:eived that this opinion affirms that a oitisen does not lose his right to vote because the aasessor fails to return him as subject to the school tax, whi.-h annuncia tion of the law was so shamelessly and fla grantly set at defiance in the late Washington eleo:ion in the First Ward. It will further be perceived, that in the two particulars above referred to, this 11 opinion" is in exact ooinoidence with the subsequent ruling of the Circuit Court in the C. S Wal. Inch and Grouen cares. It will still further be perceivod from these facts, that any opinions which may coDiliot with these aottled rulings of the law, amount simply to a straining of wits to shield, aid, and abet the agents of tbe oath-bound, secret, pro scriptive, politioal society, in carrying out its orders to give oer ifioatei of election to its nominees, by defrauding their iellow citisens of their rights, as the judges of the Circuit Court declare them to be. Gehtlbkbh: Before t ie charter of 1848 every oitixon of Washington (who had :he other qualifications) and who was assessed with real estate, on the hooks of the corpora tion, on the 31st day of December preceding a day of election wa$ entitled to vote. Also everv su.-.h ?iti?i?n am hi/I ur'.'percy assessed as atoreaaid and bad paid f.ho tax Tbe charter of 1848 extends the qualifica tion to all such as ?? shall have been returned on the books of the corporation, daring the year ending the 31st of December, preceding he day of election, as subject to a school tax for that yoar, and who shall have paid the school tuxes, and all t.ixes on personal prop erty " So that there may bo throe qualifica tions? let Real property assessed 31st December last. 2d.

Jnne 8, 1850. Messrs D Saunders and others, Judges Ac. The Fffort to Indict Messrs Blair and Whitman ? It will be recollected that in the course of the trial for commitment of ex-Post master Kendall at New Orleans it came out in evilenco that Mctsrs. Blair *nd Whitman, tbe detecive agen*3 of the Post Offi^o Depart ment, had opened and examined letters ad dressed to "Marshall Hanson," the fictitious n^med \ erson who committed the robberies, and who is charged to be cx Postmaster K - whecapon an effort was made to get the grand jury to indiot them for taking that m-j.'ins of ferreting out the robber. We have * letter from New Orleans, bearing date 4th in"t.. announcing that the grand jury ignored tfce charges, refusing to bring in bills of indict ment against them. A few moments after the receipt of this letter by mail, a telegraphic dis p itch arrived from New Orleans giving similar i' formation, sent from thence on the seme day the letter left in the mail. There is something wrong in that telegraph lii.e south of this city, or messages would not bo actually longer in ofining over it than by mail. Really, this is too bad to be borne Shaking in their Shoes ?Our talented, amiable, courteous, entertaining, ingenuous, modest, truthful, and knowing neighbor is in a terrible way about the suits of the voters who were defrauded on Monday last by the Know Nothing Commissioners of the election (hy pre-arrangement in the lodges,) against the a^en.s of the lodges to commit the fraud?.. Oar bashfal neighbor has examined the tecords, and has fouud no evidence thero bearing out our statement of the faot of the commencement of the suits in question Our so universally beloved aud respected neighbor thereupon goes into ecstacies, and tells those whom it has in part induce ! to do as they had sworn not to do, under the law, but to do, in the lodges?that they may be of good heart, as those defrauded by them will probably quiet ly put up with the wrongs done them under our neighbor's silly cry of "barratry ! barra try !! barratry!!'" Our neighbor always tells the truth about things in the futnre, as is amply proved in the exactitude of itsanti Virginia election prognostications; and in this o ise it knows, past peradventare, that no pro ceedings at law are commenced?are being prepared?because they have not yet reaohed the Conrtl Our neighbor always tells the truth, bat it strikes us it woald be somewhat wiser on this subject, if it had a peep into the offices of quite a dosen attorneys at law prac tising before the Washington bar. A Probable Mistake ?It is possible that tbe felicitations of the National Intrlligenctr at the settlement of all our difficulties with Spain by Mr. Perry, and particularly the El Dorado and !hompscn affairs, may, after all, be with out just cause. A friend of ours a day or two sinoe congratulated the Secretary of State rn 'he adjustment of tbe oases alluded to, and! e replied that he hoped Mr. Perry had sue oeeded in doing what was ascribed to him but that be was not aware that anything he had done in relation to those matters had at all changed the aspect given to them by tbe correspondence between himself and the Span ish representative here, and that Mr. Lnznri aga had only repeated to Mr. Perry what had been previously said by Mr. Cuete on tbe sub ject.

On Thursday the District Court, in ees-ion in in Cincinnati, granted a new trial to William H. Arrison. of infernal machine notoriety, convicted of murder, on the ground of misdirection i? Judge Flynn's charge to the jary. The oouft has remanded his case to the court of Common Pleas for a new trial It is supposed that an aot of the Legislature transferring the business of a criminal oourt to the Court of Common Pleas is so defective as to be null and void, and that Arrison oannot therefore be tried by that court; and the District Court having adpurned to September next, the order cannot be amend ed. Should the act referred to be void, Arri son will probably be discharged on a writ of habeas corpus, and thus escape punishment.
