Tho Sun accuscs the Administration of having at one time evinced fjmpathy nith fiilibusterism. This the InulUgenctr cannot fail to know to ba untruo, for it haa repeatedly intimated in *i:a terms it3 approbation of the conduct of th? Administration in this concec ion. On thi? subject, it says: "The Sac next procesJa to show h:>w the Junta suffered tnein selves to be deluded by pretended agents into a belief that the Ad mmiatration waa friond'y to their illegal scheme;. and even that a prominent memi'or of the Government 4 would himself lead au expedition to the island, Qm Quitman beirg ntmad as second in e>mmand.

We tru?t that all in commercial business in Washington will fallow the good example in thii rcsj act. which haj Icon already set, as above ex. plained. The Model Southern Journal ?Our enthu fiastic and talented neighbor, whilcm almost a very fire cater, now coolly asks the South to jnn Wilron, Colby, Hale & Co. id electing ?ome Know Nothing to the Presidency in 1856. Oar neighbor evidently regards the *p;it in the Philadelphia Convention a mere ina ter of moonshine, there boing no radical difference in tbo politics of its members, which should prevent them from uniting on some niao, after their own heart, for the Presidency aa:h is a fair, practical translation of a por ticn cf ourgentle neighbor's leader of the day before yesterday. Much of the rest of it being an apology to Wilson A Co. for the conduct oJ the Southern delegates ia refusing to go in lor a repcr.l of the fugitive slave la-r and for a re oration cf the Missouri compromise lin*. 0?r neighbor positively cannot s.^o ary sub ?tantial difference between the couth anil those represented by the seceding delegates wnich Aou.d prevent them from rema ting one and inseparable, as heretofore. Lut for the fact that our neighbor looks at the ques tions in i;sue between the .North acd the South through a Vermonter's eyes, behind a pair of greon spectacles, we should offer him ours by way of aiding him to comprehend that hi? proposition in the Convention, denouncing the enactment of the Nebraska bill, will hardly go down with any considerable portion of the people of the South, lint the game -vould hardly be worth the candle, evi dcr'!-; ts ocr neighbor has got into itt head the idea that it only ha* to pronounce the cause of the South, aa involvad in the Ii.aES4~3 quejtion, cot worth contending for, to satisfy the unauimoua Souih of that fact. Oar ingenuous neighbors sudden change cf front on the pending ilavery question, now that Wilson X Co. have pronounced in their Phila delphia convention azainst Southern lights will doubtless be daiy appreciate! at the :*ouih, from whence it wiii very shortly heir thundering responses from Know Nothing journals tliat do not happen to be particularly interested ia th3 votes, on the printing ques tion, oi the Northern Know Nothing ireo.bsrs cf the next United States ilousc cf Represen tatives, who aic almost to a man Frc-o Soilers. Positively, our neighbor can see no good rea son why they and the Souih should not har monize in politics! The Know Nothing Keotmg To morrow Night.?We have again to a^k the public's attention to the manner in which the anti Ivnow Nothings of Washington will conduct themseives towards thsir opponents, as con trusted with the condact of the Know Noth ings at the two meetings at Carusi's Saloon last year, and at the meeting that took place in front of Brown's Hotel shortly al'er the Virginia election. The affair which ia to af ford the cpportunLy for instituting this com parison ia to come off' to morrew etening fit the City Hall, whin and where vhoiu who wero so shocked with tho alleged attempted interference cf Mr Wi o in the politics cf Washington, are to be addressed, per invita tion, by suudry Know Nothing' orators foreign to our city. It is aasaing how the opinions of ii?n as to the fitness ci things change to suit tho circumstanzcj of different cases. Our talented and ingestions neighbor, if vte re member corrootly, oonotived the fact that Mr. Wiie was not a citiseu of Washington, ample justification for the outrage upon common do cency, tho reputation of our city, and the right to tres discussion involved in tho eon duct of its cctoiie before Brown's liotel. Will it indignantly deaouuoe tha interference cf the ex[ eetcd stranger Know Noihing ora. tcrs in the | olitics of Washington T Give the Public the Liit?Ai the Phila delphia Know Nothing Convention, apparent ly touched with shame at the glaring falsehood at the bottom of the obligation of thoir "or der" on its members, to tell an untruth con cerning their connection with it, have formal ly decreed that tho veil ot seoresy k?r?tct>.re surrounding membership of their organisa tion rhall no longer rest en it, wo trust our talentei and gentle neighbor wiil at once gire th? anxiously expecting world the lists of tho members of the Know Nothing lodges in this city, thus saving us the trouble ci so doing. Wo havo r^anagsd to procure lists cf those identified with the or der intwoof the fevon Wards of Washington. Inat is, in addition to tho list of tho Fourth Ward; published longsiace in handbill form. The publication we ask should, however, coma properly from cur enthusiastic neighbor, who is so tickled with the action of the Philadel phia Convention in raising the veil of tecresy. Misreproiantationa.?TRe leading trait cf Know Nothingiam?falsehood?was never more forcibly illustrated than in the whining cf its presses over the removal ci theii active-, avow, ed, and efficient paxtiians, and others who la bor in their behalf in secret, while professing not to be identified with them. The Pbiladel pbia I\'urth American, of yesterday, contained a column of misrepresentation concerning the removal cf Mr. W ilson from a master me chanic's place in the Washington Nnvy YarJ, and of Mr. Carter from the do^r-kefparship cf the Treasury building Tho editor conoeals Irfem the knowledge of his readers that these pcrtons were, and are, strong advocates fox the policy or Know Nothingkm, under which it ia proposed to remove from the Government's employment every clerk, aeaeLger, laborer, and mechanic, who fails to be a member of "the Ordei" wllh which they are affiliated; which fact entirely changes their respective cases u represented by our talented and in genuous neighbor. 1'he cares of Messrs. Polk and AtLee illmtrate most forcibly the want of honesty of purpose on the part of those who ( are endeavoring to make political capital out of the action of the Government here, in physicking open and secret advocates of thel policy of removing everybody opposed to Know f Nothiagicm from Government employment, with their own medicino. Mr. AtLee, in whose behalf it was up to some days after his removal protested that he had no lot or part with Know Nothingism, now shows himself in bis true colors as one of the Washington leaders of that party, and thus disproves all that w^a said to the contrary cot long since with jo studied counterfeit of sincerity. Mr. Pelk, too, who appealed to the public on the ground that he was a moat unoffending man politically, and in all respects a reliable frisnd of the Administra tion, already shows himself to bo a most un relenting persecutor of tho3? who do net be liove in the Christianity and patriotism of] Know Nothingism, and are est supporters of its purpose of proscribing every body who fails to bccome identifiad with it. So long as the Know Nothings do as they have done here on obtaining power?proscribe every man, down r.en to the scavengers?who faiis to be of their party, and so long as their j journals advooate and justify such wholesale proscription, a sensible public will appreciate a', their true value their whiniugs whenever tlair theory of right and wrong ta such mat. ters happens to bo applied to one or more of j their own partizms \ Ihe next Hotse ?According to a calcula tion in the New York Journal of Commerce it will require a change of but eigh:oen mem bers elected to the nose Iiou-te ot Representa tives by Know Ncthiug assistance, to s cure in administration majority. It strikes us that there need be no fear that mere than that number will net be found sustaining every mrasm? of the administration of im portsnce, soceof them having been members of the Whig party previous to boing elected. Wo think we already know quite that num ber, and believe that while they may vote with tho mass of the Know Nothings to em barrass the administration on unimportant questions, they will not fail to bs found a*, it; back whenever their votes are necessary to secure the triumph of any policy which the administration has at heart. Know Nothing ism has iu many ca.es been but the counter feit presentment bohind which ambitious poli ticians have sought to gain seats in Congress, wherein thoy will conduct themselves so a*, if possible, to live ac public men long after ] Know Nothingism shall be dead, as well as rotten.

The damp weather of yesterday and this morning has compelled the Young Catholic Friend's Society to postpone their pleasant pic nio until Monday. On Wednesday morning a serious affair oc curred in the house of a family named Doyle, dwelling at the lowor end of Water sTeot. One of the youths of the family, in a quarrel with his elder brother seized a large knife, und attempted to stab him, but by accident the knife came in cont*>ot with the face of his infant sister, outting her cheek from ear to mouth. Dr. O'Donnohue was called in. dressed the wound, and the little sufferer is now doing well. Tho Isd has not yet been arrested.

Albany Journal of ihe ISth, that officers Moore and K,cs3. two of Chief Matsell's aids, weio in th -t citr yesterday on their return home frc-in twbloaser, where they arrestoa Leavenworth. The officers state that Leavenworth is deiperttely wounded, ?? rauoh so that thoy considered his removal drcidedly impracticable, fearing that it would cause deith Tla.il was taken before they left. Tbe weapon discharged by Breckinridge at Leaven worth must have had double the charge neces

sary, as the ball passed nearly through his body, entering at one side jnst below tbe hip, and passing through, was only prevented frcm coming out tho opposite ride in consequence of Btriking against the hip bone, which it shat tered in a very painful manner. The ball car.not be extracted. Breekinri Jge and the fecor.ds could not be found. The termor is supposed to have gone to Kentucky. The Buffalo Commercial 3ay* : Leavenworth hss never been secreted a mo ment. The duel was fought near the lower end of Navy Island, and the nearest point or. tho Amerioan shore is Schlosser landing, the place where Sir Alien MoN'ab cut tut the " Caroline." Ihe only building at this place, is new, as it was then, a one *>nd a half story hou*o, occu pied by a Mr. Pierce, who acts as a kind of cuEtomfcou->c officer. Into this house, Leaven worth was immeiihtoly taken, as being tho nearest to the landing, there being no ot^er wi'hin balf a mile. Here he fcas remained since, bociuse it was U23ftfe to novo him as well as becauea Mr. Pierce and family were exceeding kind and attentive. aad thero wvs no urgent necessity for his removal, lie never has been secreted Everybody at the Palls has known his whereabouts perfectly. Mr and Mrs. Leavon worth and the brothers wore daily in tho vil lage, and Mrs L h".s for more than a we?h boen a gu<5St of Mrs Elisabeth Porter's. *?ho has contributed in many ways to the comfort of Mrs L. and her son Tho house occupied by Mr L. is within five rods of the railroai, ssd is no-#, and was et the time mentioned, as wed known about the the Falls a3 the Ca arnet House, and nothing could be D.ore absurd than to <-upposo that the officers had to ' pipe" for several days to find him. As soon as it is possible, Mr. L. will be re move! from the Falls to room" in a houso which havfl been engaged for him for more than a week Not one of the parties mentioned In the Times were at Schlosser at the time cf the ar rival cf the officers, except Mr. L. and he is, thereforo, the only one arrested, or liitely to be 11 i? brother and mother still remain with him. There is, at present, every probability that he will recover. Tub Change.* op Lifis.?In 1843, Guifnet, naw President of the Permanent Commission of Fine Arts at Paris, had become so very poor that he was obliged, every day to beg a dinner of a friend. He was returning one evening to his atrlitr in company with his host. The porter presents J a letter, and de manded three foui. Guignet refused it, ssy ing ho would koep ths fo? * u* he bad to buy tobacco for the mor-ow. His friend pressed hi'0 to take the letter, but he was obstinate Who could write anything p'easant to him? ??Well." said his friend, *T will buy your lot. ter, and know your secret." They went up together, Lc7er.1l ^iot'cs, cf course, ami the fie.il broken. Tho letter contained but few words, but how important! It was frcm tho Due do Luynes, announcing that he h id heard of tko unknown m m of genius, and so liciting an interview, which interview led to his subsequent for'nne. \ E"ST Gavaszi has renounced the title el' Fa ther, which he says belsngu to tiod alone He thuc fhows hia uspect. k:3-., to 'ha '?

Tnis probably means Mr C Edwards Les ter, otherwise known as Helen Dhu, ono of the crop-eared Chevaliers of the N. Y. Her aid ?Albany Atlas. Not much liki Fauinjs.?The receipts of breaditullj at the upper lake ports are tre mendous, aid in the f&ee of the immense re ceipts of corn, and tho export demaxd lut nominal, with a limited distilling business, the present prioe of this description of gralu oan not be maintained. 103 436 bushels were re ceived at ports on tho upper lakes in one day. At Buffalo ai d Oswego the receipts reported oa Monday reached 7,82-1 bbls. of flour, 82.897 bushels of wheat, 180,027 bushels corn, and 193,275 bushels oats. ClT Murders arc said to have become very frequent in Mississippi, and the clergymen are strenuously urging the more rigid enforce ment of capital punishment. The frequency of murder there, however, is nothing now, for Governor Foote once remarked that for evtry two days of hia term as Governor of the State there was a murder perpetrated. Society seems to be in a disorderly state, or such a prevalence of crime could not occur. Beark About.?Wo learn, says the Charles town (Va ) Spirit of Jefferson, ^hat a bear madeita appearance in the neighborhood of Kabletown last week. He was pursued by a number of persons, but bruin escape 1 for the present, at least, by swimming the river to the opposite shore, where the mountain prevented a successful search.
