American in opposition to the peculiar sentiments of the Charleston Mercury "with reference to a dissolution of the Union, and insists that the groat body of the Ameri can people arc devotedly attached to the Amer ican Union. The Union ir.?ist3 that the Democrats are the real conservative party of the country, and notices the fact that the Pennsylvania Know Nothing estate convention, in session at Heading, Pa., last week, wont over on to the Massachusetts platform of Wilson A Co., under the lead of ex-Governor W. F. Johnson. The Wig-wax i* a stew.?Tho reader will find in our local columns an interesting " Card to the Public," from Mr. S. C Espy, who, as strange as it seems, bears the namo of an in dividual who, 2.709 years ago, was secretary to an unmentionable lodge in the 7th ward of the ancient and venerated city of Ninevehi He speaks of threats against his life. In this re spect he is not quite as kindly attended to as the Editor of the Star, who is almost daily in the receipt of anonymous letters, threatening to hang, draw, and quarter him; more espe cially because his familiar spirit cannot be persuaded to give over his labors in Nineveh. Our note to Mr. Espy explains itself. We need Hardly add, that our spirit is by no means in debted to Mr. E. for ''hisgood fortuno"' in strik ing so rich a vein of the diggings. He is as innocent as an unborn child, in connection with ?ur publications of the interesting list. PERSONAL. .... Hon Alexander Walker and family, of La., and Capt. Dyer, U. S.

Archdeacon Jeffreys, a missionary in the East Indies, states that for one really con verted Christian, as the fruit of Missionary labor, the drinking practice of the English has made one thousand drunkards in India. . ? ? ? The venerable English Admiral Boxer, died of cholera, on shipboard at Balaklava, on the 2d of June, after a short illness. A Goon Scggestiot.?The Albany (N. Y.) Knickerbocker says A mcthodist minister of this city, a short time since, while reading the discipline to the congregation, paused to sug gest that if any of the congregation will con tinue to wear jewelry, the number of rings be not more than five, nor the breastpin larger than a good sired turnip. I)ni MMEoOrT.?Last Tuesday afternoon, a sailor on board the U. S. ship Ohio was drummed out of the service, to the tunc of the R ogue s March. ' no had lately shipped under the name of Riley: but his real name is m Anderson. Some years since he was con Meted of theft on board a United States ves sel. ar.d sentenced by the Court Martial to be ' ?drummed out if ho was ever caught in the pcrvice again. This being the case, tho sen tence was carried out. lie took things very coolly, and as he was paf.-ing through the gate of the Navy \ard. he tore his certificate of disgrace! ul discharge into fragments, and threw them in defianco at his attendants.? JJotfoH Timm. iiPThc pastoral letter of the Archbishop of Cincinnati, signed also by the Bishops of Cleveland. Louisville. Yincennesand Coving ton, and the Vicar and Coadjutor of Michigan, recently issued, contains advice to the mem bers of that persuasion to discountenance and discontinue altogether the practice of retailing intoxicating drinks as a means of obtaining a livelihood. Intemperance is called a -horri ble vice, and the traffic in intoxicating drinks is considered dangerous to the morals of those engaged m it, discreditable in public estima tion, and unnecessary as a means of obtaining a li\ elihood. Bishop Laughlin, cf Brooklyn in a -ermon preached lately, also anathema tized the traihe in the ardent as calculated to increase the population of the place that it? paved with guod intentions, and where liquids are supposed to be very scarce. ? " ? The Sedcctio!! a*p Elopement Case ?Wo some tune since alluded briefly to a case of se duction and elopement, but not being fully ad vised of the particulars, we retrained from giving publicity to the names of the parties to?"?' being unwilling to incur the respon sibility that might have arisen in the event of the rumor proving unfounded, or at least exag gerated. The.* objections, however, being removed, we have now no hesitation in giving the particular* of the case It appears that I ?hjwl teacher named John KillwelL residing in East Hanover township in this county. whS had a wite and two children living with him. eloped with a young girl fifteen yean, of u, named Mary Kauce, daughter of William Ranch, a respectable farmer of the same town ship. Mary had been going to school to Kil well for some two year., during which time he had gained her affections to that degree as to ha>e almost entire control over her. The elopement caused much excitement in the neigborhood. and numbers turned out in pur suit of them. They were found and arrestod afterwards in what ia called the fourth Mountain, by Jonathan Strohm. having been in the woodu during the time of their ab sonce The girl was in a state of almost help 'it"T ?eT'i.nUr informant stating that an on her between the time of her leaving her father's house and when she was found. She ia represented as .smart, comely girl, of at least Ordinary in telligence ller father came up *?ntfter they wefe found, when she threwIberself ui?n beseeching his forgivenesa in the most affecting manner. Killwell was brought ^.??r bo?m?bon Tuesday last, and lodge?in prison to answer the charge It u a case showing the extraordinary depravity in the be t rayer; and it is not to be wondered at that a di-powtion was evinced by the neighbors to take Jle,JlU U lUel1 ?WU ""burgh WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The New York Timet and President Pieree The New York Timc^ot Friday last, endeav ors, in a spirit of recklessness and injustice al together .unbecoming an independent journal claiming to bo respectable, to create the im pression that the pnblio business was delayed and inconvcnienced by the recent temporary ab sence of the President to the seashore. After a column of comment upon the removal of Mr. Wilson from the Land Office, and the antici pated resignation of the Commissioner of Pat ents and the Commissioner of Pensions, the Times says: " While the country is thus losing important officers at a critical moment, It has also lost its President. President Pierce is at Cape May. For practical purposes he might as well be at Cape Horn, sinco ne cannot by any possibility proceed to the appointment of successors for his retiring corps without the advice of his Cabinet; and the Cabinet is scattered to tho four winds." The gross indclicacy of the above cxtract is as revolting, if possible, as are its unblushing falsehoods. The editor of the Times knows that President Piarco has absented himself from his post, sincc his inauguration to officc, less than any of his predecessors, lie knows, or ought to know. that he has remained in Washington during the hottest ef the summer months, against the repeated protestations of his family physicians. And in this particular case, the Times editor has reason to know that duty to his invalid wife alone induced him to take the journey to which such cruel allusion is mado. Has it come to this, that a President of the United States cannot visit tho sea-side with a member of his family, to whom tho frosh and invigorating ocean air is essential to re covery of health, without incurring the malig nant mendacity of partisan newspapers ! The Times states a palpable falsehood in its allegation that " the Cabinet is scatterod to the four winds. They art each and every one in Washington, ami have been since the absence of their chief. The Executive having returned, however, we hope and trust that a portion of them will seek relaxation and re pose at somo of the cool and refreshing resorts so comparatively near to Washington. They all need and require it, and no right mindod man will ever be found to question the pro priety of their pursuing tho same course dur ing a portion of the hot months, which every other individual finds it necessary to take for the preservation of his and his family's health, if he has one. Tho statement that the Presi dent might, for all practical purposes, as well be at Cape Horn as at Cape May, bears its refutation upon its face. The opposition raise a sorry i^sue for themselves, when they ques tion the energy or the integrity with which the different Executive Departments of the Government have been administered during the administration of Franklin Pierce ! The Light Artillery Battery.?We have taken occasion to apply at the War Depart ment for information as to the details of the circumstances under which the Light Artillery battery failed to take part in the recent cele bration of the fourth of July, and learn that with the expectation that the volunteers of the District would unite with the citirens general ly in the celebration of the fourth of July, (our national anniversary,) the Light Artillery bat tery was ordered from Baltimore to Washing ton, to take part in the celebration. The battery arrived on the morning of the 3d July. On tho same day, a programme? published in the Union, gave notice that the military?regulars and volunteers?would con stitute an escort, to ba commandod by Colonel Wm. Hickey, the commander of the regiment of District militia. This was tho first informa tion received by the War Department as to the order of proceeding, and an officcr of the battery was directed to report to Col. Hickey for further information. Colonel H. replied that he would tako no part in the military exercises. Colonel Hickey callcd in the course of the day at tho war office, and stated that he had declined the invitation of tho committee, whose programme was published, to call out the militia, and that two or three of the com panies of his regiment would join ono proces sion, and one or more would join another, and that there would be two parties celebrating the day. The Secretary promptly announced hi3 decision, under this (to him) new view of the case, not to order tho United States Light Artillery battery to connect itself with either procession. Tho propriety of this course ha already been commented on in a former number of the Star. Dr. Miller called on the Secretary, on the evening of the 3d, and learned his instruc tions. If he did not learn thom before?and' he seems to complain that he did not?it was bocauso he did not earlier communicate with him. The least informed of military matters must know that orders to United States troops must emanate from the War Department, and that to secure tho co-opcration of tho Light Artil lery battery, it was necessary to have made ap plication for, or at least to have communicated to the War Department, what was desired. If, in the downward tendency of the times, we have reachod a point at which party strife ceases not, even on tho glorious birthday of our national independence, it is to be hoped ? that the day has not yet arrived?that it is far distant?when tho little army of tho Union is to be thrown into one party scale or the other, as the Executive branch of the Government may incline. ? Arrests of Engliahmen in Prussia.?"A letter from Berlin states that, in addition to the Secretary of the English Consul at Cologne, five other persons have been arrested in Prussia for enrolling men for the English Foreign Legion, and that very severe proceedings nave been commenced against them."?Journal of Com. The above paragraph is of interest, bocaose it conveys a pointed commentary on the receLt pleas of our respected eotcmporary, the Na tional Intelligencer, with reference to what it evidently regards as the extraordinary conduct of the Administration in causing the arrest of British officials in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston, for violating the Neutrality laws of the United States, by raising rccruits in those ports for the English army in the Crimea. It appears that Britain essayed a similar game in Prussia, where those engaged in it were dealt with by the Prussian Government, as by ours, on the occasions with reference to which tho Intelli gencer imagines it resorted to high-handed measures. We have held, and continue to hold, that it is the plain duty of the Govern ment of the United States to put a stop to vi olations of its Neutrality laws, whether at tempted by one power acting against another, or by filibusters, for whose acts no government admits responsibility. We deeply regref that the Intelligencer's perceptions of rigbt and wrong do not lead it to comprehend that in a legal point of view the effort of JttnglaAd tv xaite jectiuu Ul the J 1 1 ? United States to act against Russia, with which Power out relations are of the most friendly character, are precisely on a par with those of the Cuban Junta, to raise a force within the limit* of tho United States, where with to wrest Cubajfrom Spain. Legally, there is not the least diffcrenco between the two cases; and it was as clearly tho duty of this Government to prevent the violation of our law in the one ease, as in the other. In the United States the law knows no distinction of person!*, whilo they may not have been ac knowledged by the Government in a diplo matic capacity, or as member* of a received foreign diplomatist's family. The foreign func tionaries arrested by orders fnm Washington not ooming under the excepted head, were, therefore, very properly arrested. Had their persons been thus shielded from arrest by the law of nations, they would, doubtless, have been ordered out of tho United States long since. Wo have only, in conclusion, to express the wish that all those who have been led to believe that tho action of the Government hero in dealing with the functionaries of tho British Government essaying to raise recruits for the Crimea in tho United States, as they dealt with thoso who endeavored to invade Cuba from our shores, was arbitrary and un called-for, may see tho brief paragraph from tho Journal of Commerce at the head of thie article.

The next House.?There are twenty-fivo earnest and active supporters of the present administration elccted to tho next House of of Representatives from non-slave-holding States, and it is reduced to a ccrtainty, in the minds of tho best political calculators here, that, allowing for all possible contingencies, at least seventy-five staunch administration men will hold seats in the Houso from slavo holding States. Or in other words, that the ad ministration will commence the session with a force of one hundred, going the whole figure in in its favor, without calculating tho strength it may obtain from the disintegration and denationalization of the Know Nothing party, which has elccted quite a number of gentle men who used it merely a? a stalking horse on which to ride into Congress. We, oursclf, know of at least five within tho rango of our own personal acquaintance, who, though they would not have been eleetcd but for the favor of Know Nothingism, regard themselves as un der no obligation to vote for its men, measures or principles. The old-fashioned Whig party will have, perhaps, twenty devoted friends in the body, and stand a fair chance of bagging at least twice M many more from the nominal Know Nothing ranks, wherein there are not a few who being Whigs, also mounted the hobby only to ride on into Congress. We here refer to the Seward wing of the Whig party, which has recently assumed the name of the Republican party, and has the personal sympathy of every anti-Nebraska Know Nothing elected to the House. It will be recollected that only a day or two since the entire Know Nothing party of Pennsylvania went over to the Republican or Seward party, in State convention?that is, with the exception of ten delegates, who bolted and proclaimed their adhesion to the platform of the Philadelphia Know Nothing National Couucil. If the Know Nothing party proper Uuid w etuij Kw? tiiWi Jviw in towylvwn, j upon continuing to hold which all their calcu lations of controlling the House were based, it jb not unsafe to conclude that when the body oenaes to rot* cm any really test question, they wlfl be found in a beggarly minority. While we do not expect to find the Administration in an Absolute majority in the House, it ia never theless equally clear to U3 that their vote on any party question, wherein the election of officers or governmental policy is conoerncd. will be twice as great as that of cither of the wings or factions of the opposition. Assignment of Land Warrants ia the Dis trict Of Columbia.?Tho National Intelli gencer, of this morning, says : " George C. Whiting, Esq., Acting Commis sioner of the General Land Office, has decided that, in cases where assignments of land war rants have been acknowledged in this District before either magistrates or notaries-public, whose official characters and signatures are known to that office, the certificate of tho clerk of the court authenticating these facts is not required." ? i Our cotcmporary should have added, that ! when the General Land Office dispense.1' with the county cterk's seal, knowing the signature or seal of tho certifying officer, it is necessary, in order to secure respect for tho assignment, not certifiod by the county clerk's clerk's seal, at the land offices in tho West, that there should be a memorandum on tho warrant from tho Commissioner of the General Land Offi.e, setting forth that he has authorized the coun ty seal to bo dispensed with in tho particular case. Superintendent of Timber Ageucioa.?We understand that tho Secretary of the Navy has concluded to discontinue, after the 1st of Au gust next, the superintendency of timber agen cies under the Bureau of Yards and Docks, ho having determined to make a changc in the entire system. The local agencies in the State of Alabama havo already been discontinued. From Fort Laramie.?Letters from David H. Burr, Esq., the Purveyor General of Utah, who is now on his way to that distant territory, state that the Indians were all quiet in the neighborhood of Fort Laramie on tho 16th and and 17th of June. His party had traveled moro than sixty miles, all the way through countless thousands of buffalo. The Secretary of the Navy will Icsto Washington to-morrow for the White Sulphur Springs, Virginia, whither, it seems to be un derstood, his physicians advise him to repai.

Alexandria, July 9, 1855. The prominent event yesterday was tho con firmation and ordination services at fit. Paul's church. After the morning service of tho lit urgy, Bishop Johns preached from 2 Cor. 8: 5. Noticing in his opening the great contract be tween the liberality of the Macedonian church and the penuriousnesa of modern Christians, the Bishop gavo a plain and concise outline of the Christian plan of salvation; showed the nocessity for the submission of every human creature; defined the conditions of that submis sion; proscnted the design of the church in Baptism; explained that the rite of confirmation was but a renewal, on the part of those by whom it was received, of the Baptismal vow? a public profession of the Christian f..ith; and then, in a few words of earnest exhortation, he besceohed all who had' not done so to follow the example of the Macedonians, and," give themselves to tho Lord." The rite of confir mation was then administered to thirteen per sons by the venerable Bishop Meade. S. C. Sands, of Charleston. S. C., was then ord.iincd a priest of the Protestant Episcopal Church, and the congregation dismissed with the bene diction. At St. Mary's Church, liev. Samuel Barber, S. J., preached at morning service. Profess< r Masi, of Washington, presided at tho organ; and the choir, containing two of tho best fe male voices in the Union, surpassed itself in melody. At the Methodist lJj.i.-copal Church, Rev. R. L. Dashicl preached at morning ser vice, and Rev. John Lanahan in the evening. In the afternoon, abont 4 o'clock, fire was discovered in the Mansion House stables on Fayette Alley. The firemen gathered quickly, and tho flames were extinguished with tut slight damage. On Saturday afternoon, St. John's Academy, numbering some eighty pupils, paraded our streets with banners, flags, Ac., to tho music of Prospcri's band, making quite a handsome display At 4 o'clock, the vast saloon at Lib erty llall was thronged with the fair sex, over eight hundred honoring the occasion wi b their presence. The exhibition, entirely il lustrative of tho American revolution, opened by Master Wm. Adam with the introductory, and afterwards came a variety of picce?? among which 4' The Little Rebels," "Marion's Dinner," "Yorktown," original, by N. E. Foard, and the "American Flag." deserve special notice. At the conclusion of the exer cises, a largo number of superb medals, pre miums, Ac., wero delivered to the most de serving by tho Mayor, G. P. Wise, Esq. We were gratified to sec upon the stand the old man eloquent of Arlington. The gold modal for conduct was awarded to W. A. Philips, of Tennallytown, D. C., and the silver medals to various other scholars. This morning, the Methodist Protestant Sab bath-school havo just left the wharf for a Sleasant trip and pic-nic at Fort Washington. ur kindest wishes for a genial day and merry time attend them. Ami. The Ocean Telegraph.?An additional step (says the London Times, of June 22.) toward the establishment of electric communication betweeen America and Europe is about to be effected in the course of a few weeks. The submarine telegraph cable, to connect Cape Breton island with Newfoundland, is in course of shipment on board the Sarah L. Bryant, at tho works of W. Kuper A Co.. the manufactu rers, at Greenwich, and in less than two months the line is expected be in operation. The length of the cable is 74 miles, weighing 100 tons, and it oontains three conducting wires. Mr. Canning, an engineer in Kuper A Co.'s employ, ana who was engaged in laying down the Mediterranean line from Speszia to Corsi ca and Sardinia, is to superintend the work. An arrival at St. Louis, July 7. reports the Indians on tho route at> very quiet and friendly. Colonel Granger, from Fort Union, also reports all the Indians he met with as quiet.
