WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP An Inquisition?The Know Nothings on the Election Comrn ttee of the Board of Alder men of this city are going quite exten.-ively into the old Rom! ;h inquisition tern, of which they profess to Love so great a horror Yesterday afternoon the committee met at the City Hall, and they voted toexclude rej?>rters: ?o that the public may be kept in ignorance of their proceedings in the progress- *>f the Investigation into the fraud? of their friend? at the late election ; and, we pre?ume; if pos sible, for all time, far a? the point.- made in favor of the contestants, are concerned This determination can have no other possi ble object, and demonstrates tnat if they can succeed in carrying out tneir purposes, we are no longer to have a free government here, in which the acts of the agents of the people shall all be subjected to the scrutiny of tho*e whoso righti are involved in what thoy do under pretence of administering our muni cipal affair* They also voted not to be governed, in con struing tne righu of their fellow citizens under the charter of tho corporation, by the interpretation put on lhat instrument by our highest court of law. Or, in other words, to set the views of French S Evans and Peter M. Pearson, as to the meaning of clauses in the corporation charter, above their interpre tation by tho District Court of the United States in open session. We propose to publish a portion of the oaths taken in the Know Nothing lodges which have an immediate bearing on the extraordinary course of these twi officials in this matter, by way of explaining how it happens that these two individuals, neitnerol whom have probably aver read twenty consecutive page? in a law book, essay to assume the right of the supreme adjudicators of the law here. Want of room will not permit u? to pursue this subject further to day. We have only to add a reque-t t' at all in this community who bave anything to lose by the assumption of in Competent and aevret political-oath bound sc? iety men of the privilege of over riding the decisions of our highest court in the mntter of the rights of their fellow citixen^, w keep their eyes and ear? open to what is going on in the sessions of this committee. Gutta Percha.?We have repeatedly taken occasion to express the opinion that the appli cation of gutta percha (gum) to industrial pur poses. is aot only destined to drive India Rub ber nearly entirely out of similar use. but to prove far more advantageous to society lor many other purpose- than its rival. Not long since we described the experiments with gutta percha g<?*l;- for militaiy purposes toad? by scientific officer* of the army, and their results, Which were so highly satisfactory as to to the introduction of gutta percha fabrics Into the sen ire forthwith Subsequently aim llar experiments have been made by order of the Navy Department at the U S Naval Lab ?ratory, at New York with equally happy Jesuits Among them we hnd the foilowin" - ? * ** 2$*x pea jackets, made of gutta percha fabric were baled in tho same manner as the cloth clolhiug for the navy, under a pressure of thirty ton... They were then placed over a steam boiler in t.i? yard, and remained for sixteen days subject to an average tempera ture of l#u degrees, at times as hifch as 212 degrees. On cxainiuati>>c. the garments wcie found in the siime state as when packud. There was no adhesion of the folds, nor any decomposition of the gutta pervha. Une jacket Was dripped in water, lolled up and sewed in the corners, (but not pres. ci,) aud subjected to the same heat for three days On examina tion, this. also, was fount! uninjured.1 The result of these, and many other son*. What similar tests, of course induced the proper o&cer? of the department to order a consider able quantity of gutta percha goods for van ous naval purpose#, which, we understand, are to be distributed among the three squad rons, in which the adaptation of articles fab ricated of the material can be mo?t severely tested, viz : In the East Indies, African and Gulf squadrons Indeed, it can hardly fail to turn out that tbe application of this gum to indu?trial purposes will prove one of the moat remarkable and successful inventions or im provements known to the progress of the arts on this side of the Atlantic.

Important Contracts Awarded.?Within tbe last few days the Secretary of the Treas ury has made awards among the bidders for the construction of three important works con fided to his charge by Congress at its last ses sion. Thus, tho construction of the marine hospital at Chelsea, Mass , has fallen to a firm known as that of Blanchard 4 Emmerson, at 5114.770; that of the custom-house at Barn stable. Mass , has been awarded to a firm known as Adams 4 Jacobs, at S17,250; and the construction of the marine hospital at De troit, Mich., has been awarded to Messrs.

Dox Fernandez he Taos, j New Mexico. May 31, 1855. ft Too much praise cannot be awarded to Col. Fauntleroy for the service which lie has ren dered this country in these campaigns. Suck is the general sentiment of the people here. Amongst who are wannest in the admi? ration of that <4ficer. and who nre mo-t ready to mention him in terms ol honorable coin ?nidation, is the far-famed and much beloved Kit Cars.?n. Ai a nublic dinner recently given in the Pluza de L?on Fernandez, that noble mountaineer, in response to a sentiment pro posed in honor of himself, after repeated and vociferous call", modestly arose and said : ?? I have nothing to say in reference to my self; but this much I have to say that Col. Fauntkr?y and his comnv.r.d hare accom plished more for this territory than all the othei military campaigns in New Mexico put together, for the chastisement of the hostile Indians. I speak from my own knowledge; for I have been personally with nearly every campaign that has been carried on against tl ? Indians in this territory, and am familiar with the history of those which it ha? not been my Bk?d fortune to accompany I slept in the same tent with Col. Fauntleroy during his first cam paign. and experienced, while with him, tLe coldest and most inclcmcnt weather that I ever encountered in the mountains. I was a strict observer of the bearing of that officer, and can most cheerfully and cordially testify that he shrank trom no danger, exp>>sure or privation while engaged in the discharge of his duties as commander of the campaign. " Lrt not these successful movements induce the Government to diminish or relax iti efforts on behalf of the peace and prosj>erity of New Mexico. Much is yet due to these people tr. m their new sovereign Let them be brought W realize fully that the hea i of our gnat rs public has n faithful and unfailing solicitude tor their welfare, and the sun will not shine on h more loyal community of citizens than they will prove to be. Cherish them, and the flit of our flag will thrill their hearts with vital and enthusiastic patriotism?neglect them with the air of cold indifference, and its folds will be the shroud of that national devotion of which we now behold the expanding germ The volunteer troops, which have been co operating with the united States troops, have been composed almost entirely of native Mex ican- an.i well have they earned the reputa tion of brave and faithtul soldiers No man in the field either regular or volunteer, has shown mce valor and true devotion to the cause of 'he country than tho gallant and much esteemed Manuel Chaves. capiainofone of the brave volunteer companies. At the re cent dinner in this plaza, his name was men tioned in t*e most honorable terms, and hailed with the most ardent enthusiasm. He replied in a handsome response, complimentary to Col Faumlei^y and Lieut Col. St. Vrain, and his sentiment was hailed with deafening applause Give us more such gallant men as Cap'ain Chaves, and let the General Government be duly mindful of our welfare, and New Mexico, from one extremity to the other, will soon challenge any other Territory or State of our I nion for true devotion to the institutions and the cause of >ur common country The last two weeks have been marked by much excitement in our plaza Three courts, ?luring that time, have been in session Judge Brocchus has been holding a special term of the I nitcd States District Court for the trial of criminal cases, and a court-martial and a military court of iuquiry have, at the same time, been in session. The officers composing the court martial Were Col Fauntleroy, first dragr us; Lieut Trevilt, third infantry; Lieut. Adams, first dragoons, Lieut Magruder, first dragoons; Lieut Jackson, third infantry , Lieut. John son. first dragoons; Lieut Williams, first dra goons; Lieut. Craig, third infantry; and Capt Bowen, commissary of New Mexico, judge advocate. Those who composed the court of inuuiry which was called at the request of Mnjor Thompson, were Col. Brortk*. second artillery Major Brooks, third infantij ; Lieut. McCook' third infantry ; and Dr Byrne, United States surgeon, judge advocate. The two latter courts have grown out of ii riot.which ticcurred in this place iu the month ot March last, am. ngst the soldiers of one of the companies of the first regiment of U S. dragoons, under tho immediate command of Majol Thompson- iu which Major A. H Blake ot that regiment, wa? assaulted and severely beaten by several of the privates of that c m P?n.v, who were in a state of intoxication. JlajMr Blake, when assailed, was eugaged in the laudable performance of his duty, in en aeavonug to restore order amongst the troops. \] lhe moSt disgraceful occurrences o! he kind ever witnessed; and such was its tearlul porteut at one time, that the whole community was thrown into a *Ute of deep and u" View of th* consequence. ? * r!ot t!"ca*??d The life of Major B ake was aaved only by the timely interpo sition of Kit Carson aod Judge Broc'hu* who seized one ot the fatal carbine-, us it was di rected, by a bugler named Steven?, at the breast of the Major. The prompt interposition of the civil authorities, under the direction of the gentleman, as a civil mag istrate, conduced materially to the subjugation of the riot and the reiteration of the public peace. The whole subj??*./rom beginning to end, ha* been thoroughly investigated The court minhall had tried fire soldiers, on the charge of mutiny, and the court of inquiry has insti tuted a rigid scrutiny into the affair, with a view to the discovery of the source and ori gin of the outrage. It is thought that, from the,coort of inquiry will originate a court mar tial, f?>r the trial of one of the officers connec ted with the disorderly company, should not the President of tbe Lnited States, in view of the testimony elicited before the court of in quiry, deem it his duty to exercise his author ity t?y more summary means. Such occurren ces ought to be discountenanced in the most prompt and positive manner: and all persons involved therein, as agitators, abettor^, or par ticipants in any way, whether officers, sc.l diers, or private citizens, should be held to the strictest possible accountability. God forbid th .it the pence of our community should be disturbed, or our hearts filled with terror, in like manner, again. Ovioo del Pais. Amusing.?The Courier and Enquirer (of New York) has evidently picked up one of those wandering English penny-a-liners, who infest the newspaper establishments in the American commercial metropolis especially, and invested him with the duties of editor in chief, apparently ! This i9 evident in the learned editorial disquisitions of late appear ing in i:s columns about " the Secretary of the Army''?a phrase never perpetrated by any one long enough in the United States to have been naturalized?and of "Mr John Dobbin " Secretary of the Navy. As a matter of course, amid the abuse of the Government of the United States and ultra Know Nothingism with which the editorials of this writer are marked, one perceives ludicrous proofs of his utter ignorance of our public affairs,, and, in deed, of the philosophy as well as of the de tail- of our system of government. It strikes us as rather odd that a journal like the Cour ier and Enquirer cottons intensely to ultra Know Nothingism, should surrender its edito rial columns to an unnaturalized foreigner, and countenance him in the work of villifying its Government with ignorant and senseless twiddle; senseless, because its strictures are founded wholly on an entiro misapprehension of American institutions as well as American public men. Receipts Given to Disbursing Officers.?If a creditor of the Government, by his receipt to a disbursing officer as the agent of the Govern ment, acknowledges to have received money of the agent, by which the latter receives a credit or settlement with his principal, the receipt is held to be conclusive, and a claim of the credi tor on the ground that he had not been paid th<. money for which he had receipted will not be This decision is also consistent with the gen eral rule of law. that no man can maintain an action for a wrong when he has consented or contributed to the act which has occasioned his loss.

DEFEAT or THE ALLIES?TERRIBLE SLAUGHTER. The allies have made an unsuccessful at ternp to storm Sebastopol. Tho most sinister rumors prevail in regard to tho transaction. By some accounts the English loss is set down at thousand men, but the report is be lieved to be much exaggerated. Tbe following are tbe only official notifica tions of th* event: ' Lord Panmure regrets to have to announce ' that be has received information that the En clish troop? attacked the Redan, and the ' . trench the Malakoff towers atdayiight on tho ' t morning of the 18th, without the success which I has hitherto attended our efforts. B^th the French and ourselves have suffered consider- ' ably. Ihe names of tha officers who have fal len will be forwarded immediately, but it will be impossible to receive complete returns of all casualties before the 30th inst , (June) at ' the earliest. The Mmitcur announces that the Govern ment has received two dispatches fiom Gener al Pellnsier?the first dated the 17th, informs of operations concerted between the General and his allies, and that the Turks and Chas seurs nia?le a reeonnoisance towards Aitodar. Gen. Bo.quet occupying the Tchernaya. The next day at day bieak tbe French aud Eug lish were to attack the Malakoff tower. The ' second dispatch, dated the 18th, announces that tbe attack had failed, and that, although the troop- had shown the greatest ardor, and had g lined a footing in the Malakoff tower, General Pehssier was obliged to order their ! retirement into the parallel. This was effect ed with order, and without molestation by the enemy. Private Accounts published in tho London . Standard say the loss of tbe British officers in killed and wounded, are General Sir J Camp bell, Col. ie*. and Col. Shadfirth From the obstinacy and courage with which the combat j wa- maintained by the British at the Redan, ' and the necessity of eventually retiring from the attack, the slaughter on ail sides has been ? immense, and. it the information be correct, j the loss in killed and wounded of the British i alone, amounts to very little abort of four ! thousand. The greatest portion of the loss was experi- ! enced in a ravine, whero a powerful and un- I expected battery was opened on the troops, j There i-* reason to fear that the loss has been very great, but Lord Palmerston said last night no additional information had arrived. Tbe allies lost terribly by the Russians spring ing a mine, and during ttie confusion they re captured the Mamelon Tower. A dispatch from Bucharest, via Vienna, confirms that an expedition has been underta ken against Perekop. Pellissier is exceedingly savage against the telegraphic messages Napoleon sends him. He is renorted to have recently replied that when anything occurs he will let the Emperor know, but he has not time to act as a telegraph oper ator. This according to rumor, accounts for' the recent absence of news in the Moniteur. THE BLACK SEA. The Russian accounts of the successes of the allies in the Sea of Azoff, is published. Gortichakcff confirms the successes claimed by tbe allies, but suys that operations against the Sea of Azoff was expected?that not having means to oppose the hostile fleets, the garrison had order* t> blow up the batterie? and retire ?that the grain stores burned by the allies were mostly private property, and do not ma terially affect the supply of the army?inas much. anticipating such an attack, auppliei were mostly conveyed by land, notwlthstatd* in* the faculties offered by sea. * The Correspondence relates the horrible atro cities perpetrated by the French and Turlu at the capture of Kertsch A boat expedition is rumored to be preparing to enter the river Don, bat the Russians hare the entranoe de fended by twenty soven gunboats.

The Journal of St. Petersburg publishes the semi-official discussion on Count Walemski s French Circular of May 23d. The Journal also semi-officially says that peace is possible if France and England are willing, inasmuch as the 4th point is morally although not formally settled, and tho other points, namely: the navigation of tho Dannbe and the evacuation of the Principalities are also settled?leaving only the Vienna third point to be arranged.

The steamer Herman carried out intelligence of the presentation to Parliament of the re port of Roebuck's committee The report merely admits that the suffering? of the army have been agravated by incompetency at homo. Since then there has been considera ble cxcitement created by Mr Roebuck's n2 port being overruled by the other members oi committee, they having given notice of a vote of censure on tho Government, so worded as to embrace the grievances of nil tectums of the opposition?namely, that Purliauiont deeply lamenting the suflering of the army during the winter campaign in the Crimea, and coin ciding with the report of the Sebastopol com mittee that the conduct of the administration was the chief cause of the calamities, hereby visits with its severest reprehension every mem ber of the Cabinet, which led to the cuu*c of such disastrous results. Tho debate on administrative reform after repeated adjournments has ended in the unan imous passing of Sir Bulwer Lytton's resolu tion, that the House of Commons recommends to the earliest attention of Ministers the ne cessity of a cartful revision of the .arious of ficial establishments, with a view to simplify and facilitate the transaction of public busi ness, and by instituting judicious tests of mer it, as well as by removing obstructions to its fair promotion, and by legitimate rewards to -ecure to the service of the State the largest valuable proportion of the energy and intelli gence for whi^'h the people of th? country are distinguished Sir John Paul, Wm Strachan, and Robert M.
