EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: TCSSDAY ATtEMMiOM -***7 > SPIRIT OF Til KOM1KO PfcSM The Imttlligtnctr, on the authority of a Massachusetts gentleman, assarts that the per sonal liberty-act of the Legislature of that State will be inoperative, as the Governor, (over whose veto it was enaoted,) tot bettering It constitutional, will not giro the- requisite orders to lustra its due administration. The name journal republishes the following eard from General Quitman, appearing in the Nit ehei (MUs.) Courier: " ? Caen ?I have just read la the National Jntetfigonar of the 9th instant an editorial uoder ihe hesd of > Poohet Patriotism,' com menting, with vulture appetite, up n a calum nious ariole from the New York Sun. ?4 The authors vf these slanders know that, whatever may have been my connexion with the Cuban Junta it would not row be a proper time to make explanation*. 1 feci it, how. aver, due ;o oiht>rs, as well as my.-elf, to say that both the abave articles, ?o far as luey purport to rtflnt upon it. j ?o! f or iny iuaine dlute a&s<:oi*tes in tne Cuban movement, are a tissue ol barefaced and gratuitous falsehoods, for whioa no honorable min will make him self responsible J. A. QtUTMAR. " Monmouth, Jena 20, 1855 " The editor replies to this out burst of the General in calm and diguiiiad language, showing that the New York Sun, the accred ited organ of the General's late fillibustaring associates, (the Cuban Junta,) was the authcr of the aspersion on him in qu*stion?not him self (the editor or. the Intdhgeueer,) and takes oooasiou to make the fur fly in its quiet Way. The XJuvn republishes an oration delivered by Gen. Cashing in 1850. saying; in the course of its comment on il: " V ben the eloquent speaker alludes to the position of Massachusetts, and her relational to the ether S.atrs. be seems to lift tbe curtain which kiJps the future, and to pioturo the very soen*s and e?ents of the present period Massachusetts, isolated from her sisters, hos tile to bar own historical memories, the prey of ambitions knaves or fanatio priests?Massa chusetts. once tte fountain of revolutionary principle?, now tbe source of doctrines poi sonous to all healthy liberty?Massachusetts, among the earliest to move against the foreign foe, aud now tbe last to defend tbe domesiio peace?whit a spectacle is this to bold up to the contemplation of American youth on the sacred to-morrow! The pen that writes of her present position cannot do more justice to its worst features, or employ terms of loftier rebuke of her most trea>oaaole example, than tbe soholar w&o anicipatod and predio ed all those results from her early stubborn hostility to every doctrine looking to the preservation of the constitution and its compromises Who will say that this was no. tbe act of patriotic and filial affection? flow much beter and pnrer suoh an exhibi tion of coursge aud > f friendship than the ffi lanoa of the great minds of Massachusetts in this hour when btse ingrate men have anoompassed her with peril, and threaten to ataep her in the deepest degradation ? When the whole American people outside of Musa ohaseits look with horror upon the strait into whioh she has fallen, aad see the vermin of disuuion fastened upon her like living plagues, is thero no voi je from the great whigs of 1350 that will rise from the silence of ibis charnel house, and summon the past to rebuke the disgrace and the treason ot tbe present? Has tba success of fanauoism stricken them all damb? Let tbe inspiration whieh thrills through the oration of General Curbing be at once infu?ed into a thorough organisation agsinst tieason, and tbe victory tnat Webster achieved ever fanaticism on the <ame field will bo triumphantly re enacted, with solid and Crmaneat advantages to all portions of our ppy country." WUIllfttiTU* AND GOSSIP. Iba Fourth of July ?To-morrow being tha anniversary of our National Independence, we ?ball issue no paper on that day, in acoord a nee with our custom of encouraging the largo number of penons connected with the bu.l nees of our ofllce to devote it to the memory of those to whom, through Providenoe, wa owe tha unexampled prosperity, liberty, and ad van* tages which, as a people, we so signally en Joy. We trust that the morrow will not pass with its lesson unheeded by any capable of re. flection. Tha history of tha saven years events with which the occasion Is indissolubly con nected, and of the glorious results of those aveats, tails what may be accomplished by brethren of different nations and creeds oon tent to join hands for tbe establishment and maiateuanoe of true oivil and religious liberty aad eqaality. These results?tha American Union, Its Constitution, and the national pros parity, virtue, and enlightenment, whieh oameoutof them?were won by Episcopal Vir ginia Puritan Massachusetts, Catholie Mary* lond, Baptist Rhode Island, Quaker Pennsyl vania, by the native- born Washiogton, Adsms, Jeffirson, lianeock, and the rest of the galaxy of native born patriots, warriors and states men. whose pans aad arms were interlocked to that aad, with those of Morris, LaFayctte, D.Kalb, Montgomery, Pula.-ki, Kosciusko, tbe never to be forgotten Irish brigade of Pennsylvania, and others whn fled from the disabilities cf ab'olu.iim in the Old World U> win their rights as men, with their swordj, and at the coct of life it need be, on this ooatinent. We repeat, we trust tuat all will turn ovar iu their minds tbe history of oar Revolutionary struggle, and will lay to heart the lesson in favor of the eternal jus'iee and wisdom of entire oivil and re ligious equality among all ci titans of tbe United States, whioh it inoulcates. Col Fauntleroy's and lisat Col Vrain's Campaigi a ?Our attentive New Mexican cor respondent favors ns by the last bant a Fe ex press, with most iutereeting letters from that region Tbe foil jwit-g from his pen will com mand the attention of the whole oountry, wherein it describee tha recent campaigns in that quarter: Doa Fcrhasdss oa Taos. ) >ew Mexico, May SI, 1855 j Tho Indians are now beginning to leal mat wa era in earned with tbeu, aud that thoir fata is to be chastixd into submission and peaoe Ihe first lesson was taught them by the gallant Stargis last winter, id his hand some pursuit and chastisement of tho band of Apaobes, who committed their diabolical out rages on a number ot defenceless women, al most within sight cf ban a Fe.

After this en gagement, the two tribe* separated, aad tba Apeebes' trail was pursued- Iu five days attar, they were overtakes, aad, In various ekiimishes, several were hilled, a number of them wounde-i and abeut thirty hones taken. Tbia expedition was made at a most extraor dinary oason of the year, at J under the most i etnharrussin - oircuftiitsncea The weather was laolement almost. beyond example and it became necessary to fallow the enemy through driving snows, almost lmp?seable drifts, and a? the most preeip'.iou? otlffi of the mountains. Many places were explored. whinh had proba bly never before been se?n by tho while man, and whioh the Indiana bad etjoyad for cen turies as a safe ratraat from tba part jit of those whom they bad wronged The command returned to Fort Masstobu sett* about the last of Mareh, and prepared for another campaign, whioh was oommenced on the 28th by half of the command ncder Lieut. Col 8t. Vrain?Col. Fauntleroy in'end* ing to mora, with the other half, in another direction, and unite again at a point where it was inppoaed the Indians ooold be found. A large Apaohe trail drew off Col 8t. Vrain, and having, with great seal and perseverance, overtaken the band, ha oharged upon it, kill ing eight and taking many prisoners. Col. Fanntleroy, in the mean time, proceeded against the Utahs, and made one of the most extraordinary and suooea?fnl surprise* ever Attempted against the Indians. His command consisted, in pact, of a oompany of artillery dismounted, armed with rifles, and dismountoi dragoons, the balance of one company of mounted dragoons and two companiee of Mcx lean volunteers. He left Fort Massachusetts cn the 23d of April, and alter marchvng by night and day for six consecutive dsyi, ana having traversed one hundred and forty miles, he came upon the Indians in the valley of the Arkauiaa, and made a oomplete and over whelming surprise, at daylight, on the 29th of April, ihe camp, consisting of between four and five hundred Utahs and Apaches, was at tackod, and many were killed and wonndad, six prisoners and fifty six horses oaptured, and all tboir lodgos and contents were wholly destroy ed. Capt. Chaves, an officer of the volunteer troops, of great valor and skill, was ordered to searoh for and oount the dead bodies of the Indian forces, and he announced fortv killed, with evident signs of many having been se verely wounded. This blow will bo felt for a lorg time to ecme, and will exert n most salutary influenoe on the peaee and prosperity of this oountry. It has far surpassed si; other achievement m this territory, and das inspired the people with hope for their own safety, and confidence in the good faith of the Government of the United States The people in this portion of New Mexioo have been rejoicing over the bril liancy, promptness and sucoess of these cam paigns; and. doubtless, every heart interested in the suppression of Indian hostilities, from the northern to the somhern extremity of the territory, throbs with gratitude to the gallant officers, Col Fauntlaroy and Lt. Col. 8t. v rain, with their subaletrna, aud the brave soldiery under their command, for the rainbow ot Sromise with which kind Heaven basbespanned ew Mexico, in response to their patient straggles end pa'riotio sacrifices in behalf of their oountry, of justioe, and of humanity. The oommand returned to Fort Massachu setts, a few days since, in order to prepare for a renewal of the campaign, with the unfalter ing deter mination to ebattise the hostile tribe* until they sue, m good faith, for peace, and until treaties can be made with them, upon suoh a foundation as to secure a strict and faithful conformity to all their stipulations. Aviso del Pais. Consternation.?The new corporation effi cials are evidently frightened at the idea b* attempting to conduct the business they have undertaken, without previous instruction from their predecessors. This is apparent in the complaint in our talented and truthful neigh bor's columns yesterday, because Mr. Kobt. J Koche and his aisistants failed to remain at the City il^ll to that end. Mr. Roche and his assistants were always cireful to do every thing in tbo discharge of their duties fairly incumbent on them, ns all know who have transacted business wi h the City Collector s offlje for some years past. Being out of office their business was not in the City Ball, bu: elsewhere. Had the successor of Mr. Roche, or any ona else interested, called on the retiring officers and signified a wish that they should remain to instruot them or to give them any information whatever, it would doubtless have afTorded thorn (Mr Hocha and his assistants) pleasure to have done eo. No such request having bean made, they went where their own basiness called them, when their term of ofioe was up, like sensible men. NineTeb.?This afternoon we continue the publication ot the eensus ef the Seventh Ward of Nineveh, as discovered by the re searches of our familiar spirit, who has already dag out the lists of those who lived and habited in three other wards of that ancient and venerated eity, which we have in cur possession for publication bo soon as wa shall have finished with those of the Seventh Ward aforesaid. We feel well assured that oar kind familiar spirit will succeed in bring ing to light lists of the three remaining wards of Nineveh.

Watering Flues ?We reoently published an interesting letter from Old Point Comfort, than whieh neither hemisphere contains at this time a more desirable and agreeable sea shore summer resort. In the 3ame vicinity are other capital watering places, which should not be missed by those who desire to make the usual tour of suoh establishments that may be within striking distance of ouch other. Thus, we have the l'iney Point House, so long a fa vorite resortof Washingtonians. Baltimoreans, Virginians, and Marylinders This establish ment was never better kept than this seasoa. Those who lore fishing, crabbing, and sailing in safe water, should by no means fail to stop there at some period of the season. Blaekis ton's Pavilion, on Bluckiston's island, further down towards the ocean, a new establishment, comparatively, is being kept this summer with great eclat One catches there all the delight ful breeser for which the noble Chesapeake is so justly celebrated There is also Dr. B-nks's celebrated Chrsapeak' Hall, at Hampton, tl most within a stono's throw of Old Point The doctor hts for years kept this establishment as the resort for those who are fond of the very best old Virginia living atid quiet, at a water ing place He has recently added/xtensivcly to his accommodations, and refitted the bouse throughout, ts well ad refurnished it. He is now prepared to entsrtain on a much larger soale than heretofore, and to afford his guest* a great many extra accommodations, comfort;, and luxuries. No other portion of the coast i?f the Uni.ed Statea is this se?ton so capitally supplied with agreeable watering places as the region of the Chesapeake, for each of these four astabllsbments ? Old Point, Hampton, Blaekiston Island, and Plaey Feint?is an surpaised in its paoollar style Charac tans tic ?In the session of lbs lata boaidof the Washington councils immediate Jj proceeding the recent election her#, th?

Tha trath is, tha raduotion was an ill disguised elaotionaariag trick, oonoeived only for tha diehonaet purpose of deceiving tha taxpajara. Suoh ooourrenoei go to show the entire want of ordinary integrity on whioh every thing that Know Nothingism does, is fonaded. - Tho PiUoa Case ?We have satisfied oursaif that the pothar with newspapers over tha con dition of the questions arising ont of tha Dil lon affair, between onr Minister in Paris and tha Franch Minister for Foreign Affairs, is all gammon. That is, tha oorrespondenee between t'ae two Governments on the snbjeot, has so far bcon of tha most friendly character. and that there exists no likelihood whatever of thelesat misunderstanding to grow out of it. All sto ries or rumors to the contrary, whether ema nating from Paris or Washington, are unwor thy of oredit. This may be relied on, as it embodies the firm belief in ihe premises of all the representatives of foreign governments here. Apprehension of Deserters ?In order to entitle claimants to rewards or expenses in the puriuit and arrest of deserters, there must have been an advertisement from oompetent authority specifying the reward, or an order from the commander of the fort from whiob the desertion took place, and the names of the deserters must be givon. The actual expenses must be sworn to by the persons employed in ihe pursuit. It cannot Tell the Truth ?Our talented, amiable, courteous, and ingenuous neighbor yesterday said that the new Commissioner of 1'ublio Buildings has employed two persons to do the work reaently performed by one lndi \idual. We have to say that this story is a sloer roorback?nothing mora.
