In the laat month or two of each4scai year, much busi nete of the Government is done here on credit.

Nevertheless, the amount of money due, with icU for a few weeks or months, as explained ibove, is but a drop in the buoket when com pared with the heavy regular monthly expen li tares of the Government at this point in the iaap? of salaries, wages, ?c The latter, aiher than the former, should regulate the >ondit?on of business in Washington -the ormernot amounting to sufficient, certainly jear. to seriously affeot the business of >ar men in trade What, thereforo, really muses the existing money pressure in Wasb ngton? It can arise from no legitimate cause, deny of our population, who live on fixed alariee, indu'ge in the ruinous habit of an icipating pay day, paying from two to five per entum per month for the privilege of so doing. Jo man doubta that the practice is ruinous o the circumstances of those who thus indulge a the luxury of liviqg beyond their means, >nd to the habits, taates, and independence of 11 depending on those who do so. Its result n the business oommunity wi h wbom they r .de, ia the pressure to which we rofer above rhich is in a great measure the fruit of this vinous habit It may be necessary for one, ?o. or three months, when a person in Got rnment employment is gettii g settled in Pushington; but she affairs of the man who takes a oonstant practice of being shaved at om one to five per cent, a month are in any ther than a thriving condition. We write of lis habit, which works saoh seriously delete ous consequences in this oommunity, more in ?itow than with a disposition to carp We ive seen it render men of talents, high toned laracter and self respect, mean, shuffling id slavish in their souls?slaves first to fasft n, and afterwards to remorse, and to men s.t nes infinitely their inferiors in every attri bute of manly character and capacity, to whom they have contracted debta which they cannot pay as per agreement. Silks satins, stylish houses, regalias, geld headed canes, seats at the opera, and old Madeira, wi.h their usual et ettrraj, are at the bottom of the misery ari-ing fr<,m the habits to which we refer, whioh is equally the lot of the can't pay deb' tor, ii he is a man of integrity of purpose and of the unpaid creditor. It would be a glo rious thing for the future prosperity and hap pineas of this community if the credit ayeieia could be abolished by the dash of a pen, po far as the transactions of all with fixed in eomes are concerned. Ibere are many prudent persons in public employment here who nre getting rich?first on their oommendable ?elf denial, and then on the use of what they have thus saved from th?ir stipend by other public employees, who prefer to pay roundly for the loan of small sums of money, to retrenching their expenses in theae hard time: to the lowest possible n ^"h Really, it is Almost as easy to be a lender in W* hmgton, as a borrower. One year's rigid economy will enable almost any man, on entering office here, so to do I; practiced for a year, there is no trouble after waid? in persevering in the good habit. Try it! Thft End of the Delusion.?At five p m yesterday, we received a dispatch from Phila dilphia announcing tho secession from the Know Nothing Convention of fifty three dele gates, representing the Statee wherein Know No hiegtsw baa really reliable strength. That i*, where the people, being Abolitioaiats at heart, hate the Irish ?nd the Catholics of the United btatee, btc*u.?e under all oireumstanoes whioh have politically agitated our country, threatening at times to destroy its constitution by engrafting on its administration doctrines and measure* at war with ita true principles, they have ever been true to it as made by it* . ramers. They have from tho commencement of the rolling of the anti slavery ball to this hour, been an immoveable aud insurmounta ble impediment to its progress to success. Such an aDiaial as a Catholic clergyman, or an Irish, or other foreign born or native Catholio who is an Abolitionist, is unknown, absolutely unknown in the United States. Such facts give rise to the intense hatred of them whioh exist* in localities where the South is hatod with equal t.itterneaa, the aume olassof people hating both. Wherever Abolitionism is in the aaoendancy, there, too, Know Nothingism 1* to be a permanent institution and only there The Virginia election proves that it cannot attain at the South anything like the real strength and character whioh the late opposi tion to the dominant party has had from the foundation of the Government; all the really conservative portion of that opposition hav ng either retired from politics, er ranged them selves with their old opponent* to combat the new organiiation. Yet, as weak as Know Nothingiam really is at the South, it sends from the Diatriot of Columbia, where it was fairly beaten in the late election, (though the former opposition to the party of the National Administration numbered nearly two to one in our population for twenty five years previoua to the inauguration of tbe new political organiiation) as many delegates witb us muoh power in voting on a platform, as Hassachusetta or Ohio has The Distriot of Columbia and Virginia, e either of them being worth a baubee to Know Nothing ism in a general election, wisued the platform made to suit the notion; of themselves, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Miaaisaippi, Ar kansae Texas Acon the slavery queetion; and this convention being so oonatituted as u? give the Statrs wherein Know Notbingism ia in a hopeleea minority, an equal voioe with thoe* States wherein the opposition to the petty ef the administraiion never faila to suo eeed, it mattere not what banner of opposition they may be fighting under, the eoneequenoe has oeeci that the Diatriot ard the certaio Democrat is Btatea have edopted a platform on which the party in the doubtful and certain anti administration Statee eanaot dream o1 attempting to ataad. So they have gone off from the order m represented from the Booth, In a body. They will not abandon Know Notbiufism, M they prefer II to be, however. They will fif ut nnder Its banner, on whioh hereafter tftl moat ultra abolition principle! frill be Insertb*d. The consequence will be that Know Nothinglsm will die out in the Sonth more rapidly than it rose to some im portance there, whioh was almeat as though by magio It will gain at the North nearly the entire Garrison Abolition party, and will loae there the Hunker Democrats and Silver Grey Whigs who have honestly labored to make it national in its positions on the sla ery1 question It is dead! dead !! dead'!! after a short bat very merry life, indeed. It Will carry no more eleouons, save in loealities where the ultra anti-slaverjites are always sure of suooeas at the polls. It is not Manly to Whine ?Our talented, amiable, oourteous, entertaining, ingenuous, truthful, and knowing neighbor, is in a terrible way over the reoeat removal of one of the Knew Nothing master *eiksnen in the Wash ington navy yard, beoamse, our neighbor al leges, he voted in the reeent election for men sworn, in their lodges, to proscribe every man?messenger, mechanic, clerk, laborer, or whatever olass of employee he may be?from the it vice of the Government, if possible, unless they belong to their " order," and more especially to pr)?cribe men on acoount of the l-md of their birth and the torm of phristian ity in whielv'they may worship God. Oar neighbor forgets th\t the party of whioh the removed person is a meuu>er, on obtaining the sontrol of the affairs of the corporation of Washington, in June, 1854, proscribed every man in its service?from its prinoipal clerks down to and including its eoavengers?who was not of their own politioal kidney. Oar ingenuoas neighbor should farther re member its own boast that so devoted is its party to proscription, that it will not employ in its printing office a single mechanic who is not a member of " the order " Unuer such circumstances, we submit that it is unmanly in our neighbor to wbine, when one of its oonfrerees finds tne poisoned ohalice of proscription, bis lavonte moans of destroy ing others, oommeuded to his own lips. He's a Massachusetts Man.?It teems that Senator W il.'cn A Co.'s new president of the Know Nothing National Counoil, Dr. Bartlett, is not a Keotuokian, as alleged, bat a Lowell Yankee, transplanted to Kentucky some ten yeirs ago, where he has been pursuing the basiness of a theologioal and literary teacher. lit is in faot one of the " unjust, unrighteous and damnable' cla*s of Y-itkee deputy preachers or lecturers?of the claas whose names are to be found upon the list of the three thousand abolition clergymen who anathematised the President, Congress, the -South, and Senator Douglas e.*pecially, in the hope of thus defeating the enaotment of 'he Nebraska bill.

With its characteristic regard for (air dealing, it inserts a line in very small type after the lion.

It should be understood that the name of the President of the United States, found in the list, is used wholly with out authority; being so pla:od as to gu.I the ignorant with the idea that it is foand there w.th that functionary's sanction; and yet so as to enable those who have taken tnis unwar rantable liberty with it, to excuse themselves by saying that it waa only intended to be used iu giving a list of the managers of theSooiety.
