The Union illustrate? ike fact that the first or fundamental p inciple of Know Xothingism, Is to tell falsehoods, by its pertinacity in mis rcp:e*eciicg the relative number of nativo aui foreign born persons in the employment of (be General Government. It presents a table of the birth places of the employees an der the four departments of tha Executive branch of the Government, footing up 2,567 native? and 332 foreign born; whereas, the Knew Nothings oontinue falsely to say that there are 'j7S natives and 3,671 foreign born person: employed under and in these various departments We also find in the Union a correction of errors in the recently published letter from Henry A. Wise to the committee of bi* Washington friends, from the pen of Dr. tiara??t, (Mr. W.'s son-in-law,) which errors wero in the transcribed copy from which :'t was printed. Dr. G., in explanation of those mistakes, nji: "In .-peaking of our city Mr. Wise siv<i: 4 You have n:>w a large, a growing, an intelli gent, a^d zceultLy (not healthy) city popula tion.' Keterring. ia the next paragraph, to the efforts of the Know Nothing organisation in Ibid city to influence the result of the late political canvas* in Virginia, ha says: ? Your emissaries, -your viotuy, your types, v,*re felt in the late Virginia election and not the eo/usaries of the secret societies, their money, their types, Ac , as the Union has it. Fur ther on. ins teed of 4 give the State up to pro scription,' it should be,' give the country up to proscription,' Aa." The lMteiiiggHesr says cf the recent speech of Gen. Quitman: We observe by the newspapers that Gen Quitman V7.i? at Jackson, Mississippi. about tne beginning cf tbts month, and aJdreswd the people on the sutjsct of Cuban independ J once From the description of his sperch in the ' Fi;?g of our Union' we learn that he ar gued that the mission of republicanism and the great principles of self.gove-nment, like the mission of the Christian religion, is ag gressive; and that it is the duty of all vota ries of freedom to disseminate its doc rices to the enlightenment and e'evation of the Cau casian riice The acquisition of Cuba he deemed a universal semiiuent. Of the three modes suggested to obtain it?vii: by pur chase. by conquer:, or by private conqcoat? he said that tne first had failed hopelessly; that the second wi aid be barren of good, as the blacks would be emancipated before the L ni;ed fcrates coold get pos>e??ion ; and. con sequently, that the third method was the only feasible one for its accomplishment. Upon this point be dwelt energetically, eaf^rcirg his own views by referring to the successful revolution and subsequent annexation of Texas, wnich he sail had been accomplished by the materia! aid of American citisens. in despite of the proclamation of Gen. Jackson warning them against interference. 44 Such. substantially, according to the 'Flag of the Union.1 was the argument of Gen. Quit man ; concerning which a Mobile contempo rary properly remarks, that it contains mat ter 4 that might come back to plfeguo the ora tor. should te be found again within the ju risdiction of his learned uud able friend.

The Er:amln*tions.?Oar fellow citiiene are remind e i that the annual examinations of the ' ario,U8 public schools of this city are now in course 0t progress. In oar local columns will 1" 9 foond inforoiation as to when and where those are to eome off which are to tike place within a daj or two. It is the duty, not only of parents and guardians immediately Inter, ested in the proper conduct and good results of the different public schools of Washington to attend these exam nations, but of all others interested in the well-beiDg of society hero. Oar experience In the history of the publio schools of theoountry, teaches us that the very best possible insurance of their efficiency and that they shall be unexceptionably condcctod> is through general and particular interest in them. While the eyos of parents and others in the community who are generally respected, are constantly fixed on these patriotio and benevolent institutive?for they are both em inently patriotio and benevolent?tho publio msy rely on it that Excelsior will be the motto of all on whom their utility and success depends. But let the community fail to take duo interest in them, and they will seon com mence to deteriorate, we care not what may te the salaries paid to the instructors, or what may be their professional reputation. So far, our fellow citizens have not failed to attend to their duty in this respect, and we trust that their eyes may always continue to be upon the conduct of these institutions, whorein far more tor good or evil for the future of this commu nity is involved, than in any other institutions whatever. ? The Fourth Ward Poll* ?Oar queries as to the letter received by the Commissioners of election at the Fourth Ward polls at the la.o municipal election, which wan supposod to have induced the act cf defrauding many citi aons ef their right? there, have extracted from one of the commi.sioncrs ? statement, pub lished by oar neighbor on Saturday last, where in he sajs: The second bailot box. or hat. was to bo used, provided we received the decision of the judge* of the Circuit Court, and as no decision waj received consequently there iraj no donvient of any design. A communication was received trom J II Bradley. Esq , Corporation Attorney, about the commencement of tho balloting, which 1 read to my colleagues, in the prefunce and hearing of the us.-tfsor, as .tell a?, I believe, the challengers; which paper stated. in hit opinion, a person who had bsen convicted of an infamous crime, and pardoned before the expiration of his sentence, was restored to all tho privileges of a citizcn. Being pressed by the voters to ro?eive their votes, I threw the paper on the desk, and have never ssen i! since; but I have no doubt I read tho whole of it. As to there being anything in said commu nication relative to any other class of citizens' right to vote or with regard to tho decision or expected decision of the Circsit Court, there was, to my knowledge, not one word. Mj opinion is, th*t the paper is among the certifi cates in the bands of ihe assessor; and if so. or in the hands of either of my colleagues, 1 will endeavor to procure it for the benefit of the public. If the assessor has it among his papers I wish it to bo returned to me. ?o muck for thit communication. Thomas C Dos*, One of the Late Commissioners Fourth Ward. Thi? statement is worthy of note, as illcs" (rating the solicitude of Know Nothingism to get in the vote* of "penitentiary birds," who. as a matter of eourse, voted the Know Nothing ticket; while no disposition was shown to ac cord to honest men who, as u class, voted ugainet Know Nothingism, thtir rights as ad judged by the Circuit Court. Up to this elcc tion the idea of refusing them their right) was never dreamed of by election comrm.-sionert in this community; to do so was to violate the election law as it was always before adminis tereJ here. It seem? that the commissioners, with the full knowledge thit their votes had invariably been received before awaited posi tive directions from the ooart ero they would even put in their ballots in a separate and se cor.d box. Not so with the vote of tho " pen itentiary birdj." It seems that it did act re qt:ire positive directions ot the oourt to in d_oo tho lodgment of their ballots in ihe main box. But there is now no question as to the court s opinion &s to tho rights of the defrauded voters, and ihoso who have re ceived tho election certificates through the deprivation of those persons ot their ritfbU are to be called on to right tho wrongs done iu their favor, by submitting their claims to the places to wnioh they are certified, to be te.-ted when the ballets of all the defrauded citiseas who offerod their votes, are a!?o taken in'.o tbe as imato. Ibis c ursc wi'l test the aiccenty of the plea that their vote* were re* jectcd through tho mistaken idea of their light*. Dull/imea, Ac ? Just now business of all descriptions is very dull in this oity, though not so dull, as far a.; we can perceive, as usual at this period cf a long congressional recess. This fact may be attributed to the rnpid in crease of the population and wealth of Wash, ington, which in fa.^t coming to take its place among the largo citioe of our lrnion. Very few of onr fellow-citigens have as yet left u? for the watering places, and it rooms as though the remarkable temperature ?f the season v.iil be likely to keep here most of those among us who have heretofore made an annual summer pleasure trip from home. Old Point Comibrt is destined to be the place resorted to by most oi thoso who intend to fly away for the time being We envy them the unalloyed pleacure which they will enjoy thore during Juiy t.nd August?bundram, as we are f>>rcod to be, from the nature of our employment, whiih compels us to labor in that most unbearable of all con ceivable treadmills, the office of a daily news paper, wherein, let the laboring animal's mind, temper, or spirits be in what condition they may, one must seem to the world to be sprightly, happy, and as full of information of general interest, in the very dullest times, as an egg is of meat. Sick or well, happy or discontented with the world, in the humor or out of it, the dray-hori?e of the newspaper has a certain amount of agreeable information to evolve from his overtasked bruin, six days in each we?k. or he risks tbe imputation of being a dullard, whioh, once fixed on him, soon drives him from the constitution-impairing and generally most ill requited profession. Eeauty cf Know Eoihingum.?We often receive anonymous threatening letters from our Know Nothing pets; couched in all con ceivable disgusting language, and giving evi* denee that there are men arour.d us who Rre at least disposed to carry out to its legitimate end the policy of socrot midnight-plotting against those who cbocse to avail t^-msolves of the constitutional and legal right to oppose Know Nothingism, manfully. 'Ihe following ,/hich is a fair specimen of the tone, temper, and orthography of these tributes to the effi ciency with which we have discharged what we cjbeeiro to be our duty with reference to the most various assault on the integrity of our institutions and republican form of govern ment that has so far marked the history of oj^ country, came to us on Sunday morning, bei^^ ing the post mark of Alexandria, Va. The \ editor of the Star rogidea in Alexandria j county, soma seven miles from Washington, which fast he here states as affording a key to the oomprehension of a portion of the threat embraced in the letter: Sir : I take this ocoaiion of saying you are a d?d liar in regard to the city election. If there is any fraud you committed it. I rite this to put you on your guard as I intend to take your lifa on first sight this si le the Poto mao so look out you son of a b?h d?d Black hearted villian your end is nigh so be pre paired the titer of this live near your house and you will find your self in h?11 before you ara aware of it. Nothing more. 1 t Oic.s op thb Bohots. June 13, 1855. A First Bate Notice.?Uonnett is "gTeat on" bird's eye views of things of interest. One of his writers at times tells more in a breath as it were, than we are apt te find told so cf >.3D in the oolumns of any other journal; and in the vitality of that writer's pen, (and he was formally an esteemed citiion of Washing ton?Dr Wallace) lies much of the remarka ble success of the Htrahi. The papor has ta ken up the foolish Presidential oauso of George Law?"Live Oak deorge," as Bennett terms him, and "Live liosx Goorge," as the Now York Evening Post and other northern papers call him?and is now engaged in fight ing the burly fellow's battle. Our talented, truthful, and knowing neighbor it not partio ularly partial just at this time to George's cause, and has drawn out the Herald to say: " A silly papsr in Washington, which calls iteelf a Know Nothing organ?and God knows it knows but little?pitches into George Law in great style, denouncing him with great ve hemence, and all iheco denunciations are cop ;cd with great gusto into th*) Seward organs of this metropolis. This foolish Washington organ, it seems, pioked up a little gossip,'and frobably manufaotu*ed it itself, during the reonnt sitting of the Know Nothing Convention in Philadelphia, and fancio? that it can ex tinguish by it the nomination of George Law, v?hich has given it such umbrage Weshould imagine that if our coteinporary expeots to b'et ibo printing of the next Cor.grc-ss, it will ?;o necessary for it to exhibit a little more tact and discretion than it has shown upon this oc casion Joining heart snd hand with the Seward men in this Stato will not help it much. J he defeat of the American party in the recent content in Virginia, mar in a groit degree, be attributed to this Washington cr iran Nothing could excesd the folly, tie emptiness, the stupidity, and the want of judgment and tact which it displayed through contost. If the Knew Nothings had not had the misfortune to have iuoh an organ, it is certain that the democra cy would have had a less brillsant chanco of fleeting Wife Think of these hints before the next session of Congress comes around." Ihere is so muoh mere truth than poetry in [ ortions of the above extract, that all oar readers will at a glance perceive its polnti. l>' c could not have treated our pot especial to such a "first rate notice" had we cudjelloi >ur poor brain for a fortnight. tieleorological Report?Smithsonian Insti tution, June, 1855.

At length, about 10 o clock the topstone of the turret, weighing 183 1 2 pounds and S3 inches in length in t he shape or a su gar loaf, gave way, atd was precipitated from the top of the tower, a height of 250 f0?t coming down among the crowd that was gath ered at the time in front cf the Cathedral. The remarkable point in the aeoident it, that the stone fell among the people without killing; any one, and all the mischief it wrought waj smashing a lad's foot. The accident, hi far as he was concerned was, of course, se vere enough; but it might have been mucli more somas. The lad is a respwtahle younp man, an Irish lad, we believe, of the natne of McGuire.
