The Union, replying to the strictures on the course of the President in a recent speech de livered by Sam Beardsly in interior New York, contend* that he hfis been true to his pledges, and exposes, with an excoriating pen the want ?>f character of the New York Hard leaders. Beardsly, by-the-by, is very small game, being like nearly all the rest of the 4< distin guished"' hards, notoriously a mercenary man. ile will sell his politics at any time for cash in hand. The Administration buys no such cat tle. Whereupon ho is Know Nothing, pig, or puppy, a* seems for the nonce likely to pay best. Public affairs, or politics, with tho Hard leaders, is simply a question of dollars and cents. nnd as nothing is to be made for the pockets of such men out of President Pierce, they abuse him as a matter of course. They arc now without followers, tho few they had. even in New York, hming long since per ceived that they were being used only for the bad purposes of unprincipled mon. The Tutt Higtncrr says of an elective judi ? % % ? ciary :' ??One of the most pernicious innovations upon established sy.-tems which has been made by the progressive Democracy is tho change effec ted in several of the State constitutions by which the judiciary has been made elective, and of course dependent upon the caprices of Jtolitical partisans, instead of being left, as bc ore. to the tenure of office "during good be haviour '' Prom the first public agitation of the question, raised by demagogues upon a ?' platform utf popular rights," we have omitted opportunity of warning our readers against theev.i consequence* that would iuevitably fol low from the adoption of tnc proposed change. Those consequences are now becoming so in tolerably grtvious in some of the States that fell into the snare that many even of those who viewed the innovation with favor, have been compelled to acknowledge their error, and to depict in bold and glowing colors the enormi ties thai are n.-w perpetrated without fear of the pcnulties decreed against them in the law. Would to heaven we had been false prophets as to the<e .evils ! We should infinitely have preferred the sneers of our cotcmporaries for idle, croaking. ?? old fogy" notions, to the evi dence- coming to us from all quarters that we judged aright of the tendencies of this pseudo reform in the science of government. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Troablod with Worms.-The defeat of all their eff -rts to obtain a respectable number of recruits for the Crimea, and tho loss of their heavy expenditures to that end, is evidently disgruntling those in this country who are identified with the British Government. No other newspaper in the land is usually a greater -tickler for editorial decorum than the * ew York Albion, the American organ of Vic toria s government, which, by the by, has re peatedly indignantly reprobated the habit if thc A??rican journalist* have of re sorting at times to inuendo. We are therefore not a little amused at finding, in a recent number of that highly respectable publica tion the following, viz: m-lted N'nthin" i? likeiy -With double infamy, which do?s not ?n hJ pass's-x.'td'S r* .i-M tri ?uchi* Tun?-Ii th*y are who con plots, it jg difficult to conceive* but JSv" ?niT wJn n* the doublo game of trelJheTJVwhtV"* t&zzL?issr^Ssi^,'"2 '? h"K b abl.?. in addition to the de*erv.

Its nationality of influence is, therefore, strictly sectional: being confined to the narrow belt of territory bounded on the north by Mason's A Dixon's line, and on the south by tho northern boun dary of Sofcth Carolina. Thus, in every non slaveholding State in which a Know Nothing Convention has been held since their Phila delphia National Council broke up, or, rather, broke to pieces, the important plank in its platform has been summarily and indignantly disowned and 'spat" upon. In Louisiana.Gcot gia and Alabama the anti-Catholic plank hat. been equally as unceremoniously disposed of in the same way, while in Georgia at least, the slavery plank above referred to has been thrown out to make room for a very ultra pro-slavery plank. In Ohio, the anti-foreigner plank, too, has been unceremoniously thrown out, and, instead thereof, one has been inserted ex pressly denying any purpose of abridging the present rights of foreign born persons in this country, and inviting all such persons to join tho organization, whose main purpose is de clared to be hostility to slavery. By way of evincing the sincerity of their position in favor of this phase of Know Nothingism, tho Ohio State Know Nothing Convention have just made the following State ticket, viz : Governor?Hon. Salmon P. Chase. Lieut. Governor?T. II. Ford. Judges of the Supreme Court?C. C. Con verse an# Jacob Brinkerhoff. Auditor of State?F. M. Wricht, Treasurer of State?W. H. Gibson. Secretary of State?J. II. Baker. Attorney General?F. B. Kimball. President of Board of Public Works?A. G. Conover. Of these candidates, three arc Frce-Soilers, tlirco Know-Nothings, and three, gentlemen, who, up to very recently, have refused to aban don what remained in the State of its old Whig organization. Brinkerhoff is the man who, be ing refused by Polk a paymaster's position in the Mexican war, instantly turned a flaming Abolitionist in tho United States House of Re presentatives. He will bo remembered out of his State only by this fact, which made seme noise when it occurred. All tho world knows the positions of S. P. Chase, who has for some years past essayed to rival Senator Seward as an ultra anti-slavery, and prc-forcigncr man. We presume that nothing more than this Ohio Know Nothing action, added to the prompt and emphatic refusal of the Know Nothings of all the other non-slaveholding States to stand on the Philadelphia platform, can be necessary to convince Southern Know Nothings who really care for the rights of the South, that, in the North, where Know Nothingism alone has strength to carry more than unimportant lo cal elections, Know Nothingism is but a phase of Abolitionism, the all pervading element of its organization there. Soger A. Pryor, Esq.?As the New York Ihr nld. of yesterday, published a false statement concerning this gentleman?concocted in its sanctum, and attributed to a telegraphic cor respondent in this city?it may not be amiss for us to say that we are satisfied he has been ap pointed to a special mission to Greece, charge 1 with the duty, if possible, of settling the difli culty between the two Governments with ref erence to Br. King, on which Mr. Marsh, when United States Minister at Constantinople, was lor.g engaged. The Herald''s veracious con coction, of course, set* forth a cabinet squab ble over the/juestion of bestowing on him some foreign apjiointmcnt, the writer know- not what. Tho selection of Mr. Pryor for this respons ible and delicate duty is a capital one, for he is a gentleman of great energy, industry, and fine attainments, and well-matured judgment indeed, for his age. Ho has already won an enviable reputation in connection with his edi torial history, and in the last gubernatorial canvass in Virginia proved himself to be one of the finest orators of that Commonwealth, of able public speakers. We are very sure that the esjirit du corj>$ which actuates our brcth ern of the press without distinction of party, will induce them to hail the appointment of Mr. P. with acclamation, as a deserved tribute t> the influence and charactcr of the fraternity of American journalists. It is said that ho sets out for the sccno of his labors by the steamer of the 25th instant. Nineveh.?We continue the list of leading, most reliable, and active Know Nothing sym pathizers with Nineveh, as furnished by the Secretary of the National Council of the secret political order. B.
