The Union reviews the prescriptive action of the recent New Hampshire Legislature to disprove the protest of Mr. John Wilson, late Commissioner of the General Land Office, that Jvoow Nothingism is not prescriptive. The Union also contains an anti-Know Nothing letter from the pen of the Hon. Philip Philips, "who represented the Mobile (Ala.) district in the last United States House of Representa tives?for a copy of which, by-the-by. wo are indebted to that gentleman?wherein it is ahown that the grand purpose of the new party is Catholic proscription. The Union also further comments on the marriage be tween Know Nothingism and Abolitionism in Jllinois. The LiUlligenctr is shocked at the levity displayed by the London Times in comment ing on the late repulse of the Allies before Sebastopol. The editor cannot bring himself to believe with the Times that the war is to Jast at least twenty years longer, and deplores the fact, it so it id to be, as likely to prove ter ribly disastrous to the interests of humanity, and is of opinion that the questions in issue might easily be settled but for the false pride ?1' the Governments involved. e have received a printed copy of the address to the students of the Washington Sem inary. on the day of their exhibition, on the 2th instant, by Richard U. Clark. Esq , of the Washingtro bar. It was an effort peculiarly appropriate to that occasion. Also, a catalogue showing the subject or ti tle of every patent granted by the United States Government prior to the year 18^5. and the number issued under each title ; by J. S. Brr wn, A. M. Inventors anil others will find this a very valuable and interesting little work for future reference, as well as suggestive of new subjects of invention ?Effect^ of the Heat.?On Thursday there ?were five sudden deaths in Philadelphia from the excessive heat The thermometer in the afternoon indicated a heat of #7* degrees in the Tbe sun was so intolerably hot that many bricklayers, house carpenter*, and other* working in exposed situation*, were compelled tlu,t their Ub?rs The heat affected every I'-'dy and all kinds of business. Restoration of Arks?Governor Medill, commander in chief of the militia of the State ot Ohio, has issued an order commanding the restoration of arms to the Sarsfield Guards, of Cincinnati, from whom General Sargeant had taken them, on account of their refusal to obey his orders, and parade on the 4th of July The Governor has also appointed Senator Pugh to i>e major general of the division, taking rank ?ver (Jencral Sargeant.

A Permanent Bridge over the Potomac ? We have witnessed the strife upon this subject among those identified with the various inter ests advocating different positions for thia pro posed structure, and have come to the conclu sion, after many year? experience with the temper of Congress, that until our fellow citi zens of the District of Columbia harmonize upon the question, we may struggle on in vain for a permanent structure over the Potomac opposite or above Washington. Congress will not vote a dollar for more than the necessary repairs of the present rickety old concern known as "the Long Bridge," and of the Falls' Bridge, until they are satisfied that there is little difference of opinion as to the location, among those on this side of the river immediately interested; and also until a plan endorsed by the Engineers of the Government is presented to them which shall not contem plate a very heavy expenditure, and will yet be permanent in its character. As for obtain ing an appropriation of millions to that end from the National Treasury, the day has gr>ne by when that might have been accom plished, however desirable it may be to this community and that of the surrounding coun try. Our fellow-citizens should look these facts in the face, and take their measures in this connection in view of them. It matters very little, indeed, to the general interest of this city, where the bridge shall stand, so that a permanent connection by bridge with the Virginia shore be secured Nor will its even tual location have any injurious effect on the value of the property in any quarter of Wash ington. as many seem to believe. The reader may rely on it, that Congress will never be persuaded to appropriate a dollar for a per manent Potomac bridge, until the great mass of the people of the District of Columbia har monize their difficulties over the question. A Defect in the Law.?The Court of Claims, yesterday, found itself in a quandary. Judge Gilchrist was too unwell to appear in his seat, and on examination into the details of the law under which it exists, it was found that no provision had been made by which two of the judges could sit and transact business in the absence oi the third. So the two present did not even take their scats, but caused the Mai shal to adjourn the court until to-day, by pro clamation. To-day, if Judge Gilchrist is suf ficiently recovered to bo present, the court will adjourn over until Octobcr; by which time, it is to be presumed, that some hall, in the way of a permanent court-rooiu, .within the Capitol, as the law provides, will be ar ranged for the accommodation of this tribunal; as after October the Supreme court-room, in which its sessions are now held, will be re quired for the Supreme Court. The law is equally defective, by-the-by, in designating the Capitol building as the place in which the Claims Court must meet, as it is so inconve. niently located for its business, which has reference to matters wherein much of the tes timony consist* of papers of record in the va rious Executive Departments. Congress will, doubtless, change these two features of the law as soon as they come together; the litter more especially, because thry cannot conveniently give up any portion of the Capitol to this court* at least until the cxteu-.ien of the building may be completed The Press.?The friends of Lord Raglan at. tribute his death, for the most part, to the comments of the press upon bis conduct of Eng land's share of the Crimean campaign, gen erating a condition of nervous excitability in his system, which deprived him of life when dyentery came to its aid. They are essaying to get up popular sympathy against the license with which the English newspapers and pe riodicals are discussing the Government's re sponsibility for the disasters of the campaign, and with reference to each prominent officer's share of the censure, which is deserved some where. Wo apprehend that their labor will be in vain, as the people of England, whose organ the pres?s is, arc destined to increase rather than to lose any portion of the liberty, rights, and co-equality of privileges they now er.j >y It happens that the privileged clashes, who arc altogether chargeable with the unfortunate turn the affair, of Britain have taken in the Crimea, know at least bv this time that it is impossible to hide from the masses the fact that they?in the Cabinet and on the field?arc the sole authors of England's shame. This knowledge, on their part, can not fail to paralyze any efforts that they might possibly otherwise be able to ina'ie. to con tinue for their own benefit tho civil and uiili tary systems of the realm, which have, togeth er, in this case, proved so inefficient for the protection of the interests and honor of the nation. Tha ProepecU of the Sou;K-Soine erudite and wel'-informed Northern man is doing hU b<*t through the columns of thg Journal oj LumMtrec to enlighten his brethren as to the true condition and prospects of the South lie writes with a powerful pen and po^esftee evidently a thoroughly informed and practical mind. We nevertheless doubt the ability of aught human in these times of the general prevalence of optimist notions throughout the North to beat common :>euse views into the noddles of its self-sufficient and flashy-edu cated masses, who possess just information from books sufficient t j make it a curse to them and the whole country, under the teaching of dem agogueism in the pulpit aud in politics. We quote tho writer in question as follows: '? In two, or at most in three yean, from present indications, the capitols of the most widely reparated slave State- will be brought within seventy-five hours of each other, by railroad communication entirely through slave ternary At an *arlief period will the Gulf of Mexico be reached in a considerably less time, trorn the Chesapeake Bay, while Charleston ;uid Savannah will be within thirty-six hours' travel of Louisville and Memphis, Baltimore, Alexandria. Norfolk Petersburg, and Rich mond, will be directly eonnectcd, by loco motire velocity, with Vicksburg, Natchcz. Mobile. Pensacola and New Orleans. ?? Upon the face of the globe, there is not so stupendous a railwav network, as that in em bryo, which is to embrace in its circle, and ul timately develop every foot of Southern soil. Texas and Florida, under its influence, will profit alike with Maryland and Delaware ? (' uch mineral and other resources are to be un locked in the long neglected mountains and of Virginia. North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennc<*ee. j w will contribute in as great a degree to the prosperity of those States, and their Southern a m?' as have the products of their luxuriant # .u ^lscoveries have i>ointcd out > them their hidden treasures, and arranged the manner of their realization. Richmond, ,*? i*c^itica manufactur ing, aaid heathful location, may become the Manchester from which the South will derive lU suppliesof cotton and woolen apparel; aud Knoxfllle, heretofore shut out from intercourse with the world, the Birmingham, which will furnish it wifh all that may be required of imt Vulic articles. Iu> position Is central, and the centre at which the trains ou *4 th? great r >ute* will meet. Its adjacent coal fields and ii<>n. coppcr and lead mines, are numerous and inexhaustifcte ??The day of dependence upon the North by the South Tor market*, a* for merchandise, is Mpidly passing away. With it, social inter course will diminish in a similar ratio The ii calculable value of the Southern travel may be cut off to such an extent as to render it of but little profit. The more mountainous re gions of the Slave States abound with medici nal springs, of as varied qualities and cura tive virtues as the celebrated Spas of Germa ny. Many of them?.?ime quite new discov ered?are surrounded by picturesque scenery, and are perpetually fanned, in the warm months, by invigorating, salubrious breeses. They arc all bec*uing easy of access. Two vears hence a railroad ride of twentv four hours from tide water, will place the seeker af trr it at the one farthest off. They are des tined to speedily be the most fascinating ob jo ists of summer attraction on this Continent. t<> the fashionable and wealthy, as also to the ' lame and afflicted.'' Northern cities and watering plaees were never so prosperous as when thronged with Southern visitors. Those visitors, in the main, they must prepare them selves to lose." Kansas.?The following is the substance of the platform adopted in the Lexington (Mo.) j Anti-Abolition Convention : 44 That the agitation of the slavery question in Congress or the several States must finally r -sult in a dissolution of the Union; that the resolution of non-slaveholding States not to admit another slave State is a declaration of b'utility to the Constitution; that the diffusion of slavery tends to ameliorate the condition of j the slave, and maintain the equilibrium a;ainst the n >u-slaveholding majority; that t m Kansas-Nebraska act and the fugitive save law are cordially approved ; that the in c >rporation of moneyed associations for the Si.irpose of colonization in Kansas is unprece dented in history, and i< an attempt to thwart the purposes of the Constitution and the enact ments of Congress; that these colonies will necessarily lead to resistance : and while they disclaim any intention to interfere with actual a 'tilers, they will protect themselves and prop erty. Eighteen border counties in Missouri co.itain 50,000 slaves, which will become value less if Kansas becomes the abode of abolition fa latics. They appeal to the good sense of the N ?rth to put down fanatical aggressions and emigrant-aid associations, and leave Kansas to a natural settlement." There is not a word in it which we do not heartily endorse?not a word. We caro not w lat misrepresentations of the conduct of the Missourians the anti-slavery press may put forth, the country, everywhere, will, sooner or later, come to understand that the Mis sourians are merely contending, like true hearted men. to prevent the consummation of the schemes of the Abolitionists to rob them of the 50.000 slaves in the eighteen counties of the State bordcriug on Kansas, using Kansas a^ the means of so doing. We do not approve tl cir treatment of Gov Reeder personally, more especially because his record as a public man disproves?, in our belief, their allegation of sympathy with abolitionism. The following list of the officers just elected by the Legislature shows that that body is about to do its best to defeat the plans of the abolition aid societies, every one of its officers elected being partisans of the adoption of a slave holding State constitution : Of the council, Thomas Johnson was electcd Sresident: K. R. Recs, president vro ttm.\ obn A. ilaldermau, chict clerk ; Charles 11. Grover, assistant clerk ; and Cary R. White head, sergeant-at-arms ; and Wm. Godfrey, doorkeeper. Of the bouse, J . 11. Stringfellow was elected shaker ; Joseph Anderson, speaker, yvo if in. ; J. M Lysle, cuief clerk ; John Martin, assis tant ; T. J. Cranuner, sergeant-at-arms. Fusion.?It has been determined that the fall conventions of the (nominal) Whig and Republican parties of New York shall meet this fall at the same time and in the same place. This means ''fusion," of course. What i.- ^till called "Whig" in New York is simply the wing of Mr. Seward's followers who have s<. far kept out of Know Nothing Lodges. A large wing went into the lodges, and came out of them only to go into the Know Something or.new Republican?party lodges. The Silver Grey;?, or Fillniorites, are nearly to a man Know Nothings, and support the Philadelphia Platform. In that party is also a large wing of the Hard Democrats. The Fillmore wing of tho Whig party of New York has at no time within the last oix years embraced more than a third of the number of votes identified with lh'.* Seward wing or interest. The Democratic leaders in New York, in view of this state of things, feel perfectly sure of a sweeping tri umph in the fall; a? the Sewarditescan hardly be as strong after the formal split in the Know N"thing party, as when they, in a great meas ure controlled its council. A Treaty with the Sandwich Islands ? Yesterday, aftrr we went to press, we under ^tind thf Secretary of State and Chancellor Lee, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Pleni p< tertiary from the Hawaiian Kingdom, con cluded the negotiation of a treaty between the United States and the Sandwich Islands, mu tually advantageous and highly important in relation to the commercial intercourse be tween the two countries. We have every reason to believe that it simply secures t> both c< uutries the advantages of commercial intercourse on a fixed batds, ,-imilar to that on whioh our commercial relation- with other civilized countries is fixed. Eweltoring Weather.?Yesterday was a very oppressive day in Washington, notwith standing the receut showers. It is exceeding ly dangerous to unacclimated persons to labor long uudcr the glow of the sun while careless of their diet and drink. Persons in the habit ol using intoxicating drinks pretty freely are much more liable to the sunstroke than the temperate; and if necessarily much exposed at this season, should be careful how they es say to quench the raging thirst created by strong drink, by liberal potations of very cold water; almost as dangerous to them under such circumstances, as excessive drinking of ardent spirits at all times. To their own Detriment ?Many applica tion for military bounty land warrants are da ly received by the Secretary cf the Interior, wh > causes them to be transferred to the Pen sion office, to which they should have been ad dressed diret^iy. A day or two of precedence is thus lost by the delay in reaching the bu reau to which they properly belong. Ai an average of 000 applications rcach the Pension office daily, and as but from 300 to 1 350 warrants can be issued daily, a party ad dressing his application to the Secretary of the Interior, it will be perceived, gets some thous ands lower down the " in turn ' list, than if he had addressed the Pension bureau directly, j ' A Pro Tern Marina Corps Quartermaster. Captain George F. Lindsay. Assistant Quar termaster United States Marine Corps, has been ordered from tho New York navy yard, where he has been stationed for somo years in the discharge of the duties of his assistant qu irtermastership, to headquarters, the Ma rii.e Barracks in this city, to discharge the duties of the quartermasUiship of the corps, | made vacant by the death of the late Major Nicholson, unfil the President may make a permanent appointmrnt. Enoraxoua Land Sales.?We understand that tie sales of the puhlie domain in the Fort d *s Moinea (Iowa) Public Land District this tcMon. hare been tremendous. Exclalire of the lands taken np there with bounty land warrants, in the month of May they amounted to an aggregate of 5300,723 KO, and in June to ?244,703 95. These transactions are unpre dented in that quarter. A Secretary of Legation .?Michael W. Cluskey, Esq., of this city, was appointed, some days since, Secretary of Legation to the Ilawaiian (Sandwich Islands) embassy accred ited to this Government. To hold this posi tion, it will be remembered, it is not requi site to be a citizcn of the government so cm ploying the individual. Mr. Cluskey is a na tive of Georgia, and is a young gentleman of very decided character, talent, and energy. Th* Statuette ?we were mistaken in what we said yesterday with reference to the price at which Mr. A. G. Southall proposes to dis pose of copies of the beautiful model of the equestrian statue of Jackson, in Lafayette Square, in this city. It is <-10 each, instead of 520. as we said on that occasion. The Current Operations of the Treasury Department.?On yesterday, the 20th of July, there were of Treasury Warrants entered on the books of the Department?
