Ooncerning them, sent horns fro* thw English and French armies Oar infidelity arose from the feet that, in every instance since their landing in the Crimea their first accounts of each rucoeeding exploit of theirs baa proved laughably far from the truth The mails which bring Russian accounts of the same sffairs (including taose of the Asia and Aiel, reaching our shorea subsequently.) explain that : h?so vauated achievements amount, in reality, to just nothing at all in the way of tho con summation of the reduction of 8ebastoj>ol or crippling the power of Rama for effeotive da fence. In these first accounts great parade is made about the movement cn the Tchernaya, a point whioh could have been quite as easily c inquced at any hour sinoe the siege com menced, and of so little importance in the movements on the chessboard cf battles that Russia had no fortifications there. It seems to be the opinion of military men here, that tha movement in question was the result only of the beginning of the want of water around Sebaatopol. In July and August there will be such a want of water felt in the berieging oampi of the allies, as that there will be immi nent danger that their armies will die of thirst and the pestilences incident to being compelled to gc without water, or to drink from the cess poofc into which all the filth, oarcases, and evefy eoaeievably nauseous tiling about the oatnps and entrer.chimnta have long been soak ing The English and Treooh papers are also making great parade over the capture of two Russian outposts, that cost the French alone, more than three thousand effeotive men killed and placed kors du combat. Now, one of these works was erected by the Rasrians only three weeks before; and the other, only two months before Ihey wtre not defences of Sebaatopol, but Russian worfc of assaults against the camps and entrench ments of the allies Indeed, the Asia's trail brought offiaial intelligence from the English war office that the idea of holding the.n and attempting to use them against the Russian defences of tho city, wm not dreamed of, as they (these outworks) were merely available against the allies, being subject to be destroyed at will by the city's defences. So these achievements bring theai no nearer the reduc tion of the city than they were months ago So, too, with reference to their enterprise against the sea of Asof. They (the allies) have been able to go there at any time ei:.oe the 1st of September last, *a the Russians have wholly refrained from fortifyirg the ap proaches to it, as its occupation by the allies is of not the least consequence in the campaign Its occupation will bavo no more effeit in the matter of stopping the euj plies of the Russians in Sebastopol, than the occupation of Boston bay and harbor by an invading army, would have in bringing abw? the stoppage of sup plies to an American army deluding Titts burg?not a whit more The burning of six millions of rations of the Russians which wore ?? transitu for the Emperor's troopa employed in Asia, will not in the least effect Ru.-sia; in somuch as owing to the blcekade of hor ports the granaries of the empire are groaning witb corn and all other descriptions ot produce, rotting ?v.r want of consumers England and trance, are. oven in tiiue of piace p urchasers rather than exporters of grains and other pro vi-ions, in quantities. During this war their troops, more especially those of Eug'and, have been kept half starved nearly all the time The allies were tadly in want of the provisions thus wantonly destroyed, suffi jient to provisi -n some fifteen thousand mtn for a whole year. Thus, they and they only, are to ba he losers by this almost unaccountable ac!. of folly on their part. The act reminds us of the conduct of an It iah mob on the temporary auspecsion of the Bank of England, who, to be reveoged on the institution, collected all of its note they oould lay their hands on, and burned th?m. The truth is, all these splurges?for they amount to little more?are mere effort* to satis;y public opinion at houie, long more than satiated with suoh glory as has resulted, and profit as may be likely to result from the Crimeaa campaign*. Voting at the Fourth Ward Foils. -It will be recollected that, some time sinoe, we had occasion to publish a letter written on the 3d of June, 1850, by the Attorney of the Corpora tion of Washington, giving bis opinion as to who had a right to vote, in accordance with which, all who were naturaliaed eitiaens on offering their votes, who had the other requi ?ito of a yeir's rerid'.noe ia Washing ton, (whish wis but according them their rights, as has since beta decided by the Cir ouit Court.) were entitled to vote here Sub sequently, there hu been sent to us a letter, purporting to have teen written by tha Con poration Attorney, affirming tha right of par doned convicts having the requisite qualifi cations, to vote in our municipal elections. It is aa follows : To ikt C?mmi*sion*r? ?fth* StvtntA Ward: Qmmmz The charter of the eity pro hibits from tho eleetive franchise all jwfons who skull have bean eor,vieted of an infamous crime \ on ask what ia tha effect of a pardon in suoh cases ? I answer, tha general principle of the eom mon law, to wb:oh I km.w no exoeption, is, thai a pardon, ^fter convietion and sentence restore* tha party to all his rights and priv ileM. * K Wherever this ia not the oase it must be by the foroe of some restraining stntuto. There to none ot which I am aware touohicg this particular disability ; and my opinion is, that error a pardon such a person is, in this citv restored to his right to vote, if he has tha other requisita qualifications Respectfully ivM. 4 my* AUor"' *? This letter ia worthy of note, only from the fact that it embraces nothing whatever eon earning the rights of those wh>wero noto riously defrauded out of their rigbts of citi xenship a* alwajs previously accorded in this oitJ> ?' sfirmed by our highest judicial authority on the morning of tha election, whioh decision, Judgment, or opinion?call it what you may?was known to nearly every man and boy at all the precinots cf the city within ed hour attar tha aetion of the court, above retorrad to. It does not appear from tha letter above printed that the Corporation attorney was asked for an opinion by the oommieaioners of election upon tha point en which more or Use of them undertook to ad minister ?he law by a naw reading af ft. sa is di*fraaohise and thus defraud soma h*n dreds af their boceet and reputable fallow eitiaens. The penitentiary bird.',. a ~rer, were brought in, legally, we doubt net under this daeiaLu, and we will agree to show a blaok ewan for every voter of who ?*eadej the pells, who failed to vote the straight-out Know Nothing ticket. ? We may sot forget to add that the above letter from the corporation attorney is sent to I as at a copy of the one reoeived by the com missioners at the Fourth Wards polls en the morning of the election, before it wae finally determined by the three Know Nothing com missioners there not even to receive and lay I aside to be subsequently oanvassed, the votes "ot atl:astone hundred citisens legally enti tied to the suffrage, who attended at and around the polling window for the Fourth Ward, in I the Tain hope of getting their right; many of them going away in disgust without reaching the window, on seeing how those offering such votes as theirs were treated by parties both in and outside of the voting place. Nineveh?As we dive deeper and deeper in to the reaords of this ancient eity, more won ders are constantly b^ing revealed. Secrecy I in the politics of its inhabitants was a prime object sought to be attained, and they accor I dingly did their best to "cover np their tracks," I a figure of speech not known in the year 18541 A. C., it having originated from a habit of thel aborigines of onr own land, a much morel modern people. They (the good folks ef Nin-1 eveh) little thought that in some twenty seven I hundred and nine years afterwards, spiritual* I inn would devise a plan by which thepolitioal treasures of their times would be made known I to the generation then living. Judging from I sijns found amid tho rains of that an-1 oient city, we ore satisfied that the Mr. Jno. I ft Eivans whose name was foand in the list of I its inhabitants published on Monday last, didl no long walk its street", finding very shortly I after he entered its g?tes, that participation I in politics on any side was not particularly I suited to a quiet business man. We have also satisfied ourself that the Mr. I Thomas N. Braehears. whose name was in the I list published yesterday, gavo Nineveh the I ?lip immediately after he had Been the winged I beasts, the cut of whore snouts by no meant; I suited his artistio taste at first eight. Aocording I to the records of that anoient city he sojourned I in it only one a single night, and then shak-1 ing its dust off his feet, became its mortal foe. I Tho following is a list of a few more of the dwellers in the ancient city of Nineveh, A. 0. 1854.

Probably a " Mistake-' Maliciusly Made.? I A telegraphic correspondent of the New York I UeraU writes to that Journal under date of I J^ne 25, saying: " I was informed by one of the order in good I standing, that at a meeting of the stcokhold-1 ers of the Anuncau Organ it was de ermined I *0 dispense with the services of Mr. Vespasian I Ellis. One of tbe editors was discharged on I Saturday The Herald'? article aooomplished I the business." We have no confidence in the truth of thel principal point in this sews. Mr. Ellis is I really au invalid, and too great a sufferer to I permit him to discharge the arduous duties of the editor of a daily paper in these days. It | is well known that he aeked for the leave of I absence acocrded to him to recruit his health, and that his return to tbe poet is expectcd on I his recovery There is not a man among the I shareholders of the speculation who it more southernish on the slavery question than Mr I E., while nure or lees cf them sympathise, I rather, in the views of Wilson, Colby, Hale, I Colfax, b Co. So the whole itory about hisl discharge is evidently a roorback. I The assistant editor, or, rather, the city re I porter, whose *ervioes were diipensed with on I Saturday last by the proprietors of oar tal-1 ented, eourteoas, gentle, and truthful neigh I bor, was discovered never to havs been inside I a Know Nothing lodgo in Washington. As I they will give employment to none outside of I " the order," he was accordingly sent off with I a flea in his ear. Apropos: That sort of work ia hardly eon-1 sistent with our neighbor's recent jeremaids I over the fact, that the Union oifice recently I dispensed with the services of some boys at $31 or $4 per week each, bocause our ingenuous I and veracious neighbor avers they avowed! ' American sentiments." The truth is, it was I determined to employ young women at $5 or I per week hereafter, to lay on the sheets in I the Union ofllee, instead of boys at $3 or|4| per week. Hence the discharge of these lads, I which our silly neighbor endeavors to torn to I political acconrt, in the face of its own avew I ed proscription of every person in its business I vrho fails to be a Know Nothing A Marine Corps Appointment and Diamia-1 sal.?Second Lieutenant Freeman Norvell,!

Menomoace ieserv; ?The portion covering nine full townships of tbe old reservation im mediately east of perntar4nt home of the Monomonee tribe on Wolf River, Wisconsin, having been re leased for Indian purposes, the necessary instructions have been issued by the General Land Office at Washington for the esiiy completion and retain of surveys of the eight townships, not heretofore surveyed, in order to open the lands to sale and location; and the necessary orders b?v*? *l-r> *"'ren ti> the land i ffioerr r.? *ujiv . j rc . ?r^e'o the rei&ainitg township nirtb range 17 east, prepared for market, and offered in 1846, bat whieh vu withdrawn in 1863, to opeotka same to private aotry again by giving two nonths public notice, to a* to af jrd an equal ohanoo to ail who wish to pure hue tho lands.

June 27,1855 It will doubtless be regretted by all oar citiiens, tuat the very friendly and interesting practice of celebrating the Fourth of July, by a union of all the Sabbath schools, which has prevailed in our oitv for many years, is to be departed from on tho coming national holiday. This we believ* is mainly owing to the!act that no place suitable for such a celebration can be had within a reasonable distance The school attached to the Methodist Pro testant church intends spending the d;?y at the beautiful residence of John H King, E jq , on the Little Falls road, when addresses suit able to the oo .nt'ioa will be delivered by John T.
