Terms- 51 25 a year, or three cent? a number. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Unum say? that England and France do Ji 't pretend to deny the terrible reverse their armies met in the recent attack on the Redan and Malu.koff Tower, at Sebastopol, and ac counts for the lack of American sympathy ?with the Allies, on the ground that they are no. torkm-ly fighting, not for Turkey, but for th<-ir ? wn aggrandizement. The Union also draw. a parallel between the French Revolutionary Convention, under Robespierre, that enacted a law expressly acknowledging the existence of a Supreme Being, and then brought to the guillotine every man. woman, and child within their reach suspected of being hostile to their measures or their principles, with the doings of the Philadelphia Know Nothing Natrona Council and the evident tendencies of the or' dcr, a? exemplified by Know Nothing Supreme Being resolves, election frauds, outrage? in the darkness of the night, Ac. The lntelligtnttf discusses. with the Charles Inn Mercury, the right of a State to secede from the Union, insisting that the federal com pact cannot be di.v-olved as merchants dissolve their partnerships, one member of a firm wish ing to withdraw. The editor regards the Union as being in the nature of a marriage contract, which i an rightly be terminated only be death, and adds that c\en if the States were willing ty dis.Mdve the l'ni?>p. if could only be legally done by and with the consent of all the people if all the States.

Tho Great Virginia Improvement.?We do not know where, in the United State*, a work of internal improvement of greater national importance is in progress than the Orangeaud Alexandria Railroad, now being so rapidly pushed to a completion That is, in connec tion with its extension, known as tho Virginia and Tennessee Railroad, and ruuning from Lynchburg to Memphis, and the latter road's connections, which are to ttrike the Quit ci a t?Jnt- branch at Mobile and another at New Orleans. These enterprise are not cLi meras, but bona J1J2 works, being rapidly pushed to completion?ti> be finished, by-the by. in a very short time. This series of great w >rks will o|>eii to the markets of tho world the most valuable agricultural, mining, aud planting section of the United States which is at present a sealed book to industrial progress, as it were, because, up to this time, having scanty water facilities for transportation to and from it, it has been lying locked up. being almost valueless from want of the means of speedy and economical transportation iu different directions to the great markets of the land. The comple tion of the series of works will be worth, it may be, u hundred millions of dollars in the in crease that it will speedily give to the lands within fifty miles on each side of its location, while the facilitic.. fur traveling between the North and the South, and the East and the West, which it will afford, cannot fail, at once, to make it one of the best paying series of rail r? ud-ever constructed in the United State*.

Fau quier. Culpoppcr, and Orange. It. lies on a (11 agonal line, connecting the northeast and southwest sections of this Union, and cannot be superseded by any other route. It can be shown in a satisfactory way, from the receipt* of other roads, that the annual revenue will not fall short of $8,000 a mile; which, for 108 miles, will amount to 51,344.000 per annum. Placing the net earnings at only 45 pvr cent, of the receipts, in order to be clearly within the limits of safety, and beyond any objection, we have annually at the dispo sal uf the proprietors 5604.300; equivalent to an interest of 6 per cent, on upwards of 510.000.000. The connecting lines of the South-West, which will be opened simultaneously with this if not sooner, extend to New Orleans, Memphis, and Mobile. To the former, for instance, which i- the most remote, the distance will be less than 1.200 miles, aud at 25 miles an hour, travelling time, (which is the present rate of speed between Baltimore and Cincinnati, and which we can increase whenever circumstances c ill for it.) a person can go between Washing ton anil New Orleans in less than 48 hours. Memphis, on the Mississippi, can bo reached at the same rate in 27 hours, aud Mobile in forty-four. The H auls proposed to bo issued for the Ex tension, amount to 51.200,000, and arc secured upon the whole line, with a first lien upon the new part of the Road. The sum of the two mortgages is 51.600.000. which is at the rate of 59.500 per mile, con siderably less than i- usually put uj?o:i simi lar enterprises in their early stages, without revenue, n:id with several unproductive years before them. The receipts of the Road for the last fisr.il year, during a great part of which it stopt short of Gordonsville, amounted to upwards of >171,000. ^ In the present year, terminating in September next, notwithstanding that, in common with other Roads, the freights have been curtailed by the failure of the crops, the revenue will probably exceed 5210,000. Tha End of a Disreputable Trick.?We mentioned, some time sinoe. that the munici pal Councils of this city, a large majority be ing Know Nothings, had reduced the rate of taxation, immediately prior to the recent elec tion. from 70 to 60 cents on the hundred dol lars, and that immediately after the election the lower Bjard had again added on the 10 cent* thus struck off for political effect. It seems to be understood, that having once fixed fie rate of taxation for the year, their power with reference to it ceases. So their action proposing to restore the struck-off seventh of the whole necessary for the support of the city government and the prosecution of the im provements needed in Washington, (by their own subsequent showing.) was practically ille gal. and i'ur fellow-citizens are now paying their taxes at 60 cents on the hundred dollar5 The result is to be a heavy deficiency in the finances <; Washington during the ensuing fiscal year only to be made good by burden some taxation for the next succeeding fiscal year, or an almost total cessation of the im provements by the corporation in progress end contemplated. This state of things, it will be remembered, originated in purj>oscd fraud ujion the citizens *>f this city, who-c vote? were designed to be influenced by the false iinpre--i.>n that the Kn> w Nothings, if they succeeded, designed carrying on the city gov ernment at a l<- .< cost than heretofore. Thev have fallen into their own tiap, and must bear de served odium lor bringing tlio city heavily into debt or j utting a stop t. its improvement* Without there havi-ig been the lighte.-t neco*> "ity 1 T so doing, and only for the accomplish uientoi a fraudulent end Commissioner of the General Land Office. A portion ol the Know Nothing preps are ei. d-.'avi ring to create the impression that no one ha.- been appointed C >mm-idouer of the Gei 3 era1 L i:,d Office in the place of John Wilson, t.xj.. and, consequently, that the large bus', ness of the land office is suffering inconvenience and d* lay. To sati-fy ail per.-ojis wi:o mi^ht re el and put faith iu the partisan statements of these journals, we state that the President, immediately on the removal of Mr. Wilson, appointed Mr (ieorge C. Whiting Commis sioner of the Bureau, and that under hi-1 direc tion the vast duties of the oflLe are being dis charged with energy, promptness discretion, and large intelligence. Mr. Whiting has been familiar with the working of thi- bureau for many years, and, next to Mr. Wilson. ha? ) r ;h ibly as much acquaintance with its de tails a? any mar. in the country The energy or integrity of the bureau will not suffer in it- pre^eut hands.
