Barilcger, of North Carolina,to produce anything worthy of being dignified with the name of truth, to substan tiate his allrged declaration fiat the Pope's iNuncio in Madrid told him (Gen. B ) before the presidential election, that it wus arranged between the Catholic hierarchy in thi? country and Gen. Pit-r.e, to appoint the present incum bent, the Hon. James Campbell, of Pa.. P??st rc aster General. The editor. in the course uf Lis remarks say;?: *'If, however. Mr Barringer shall presume to enter upon the very delicate anU by no means enviable task of attempting to report a conversation between himself and the Nunci>>. which transpired more than two years since, for the purpose uf proving the truth of that j^rtiDn uf the calumny which ha< as it now appear-, beer, circulated by hi> sanction, we hope he will be explicit and distinct in reject tu the date of the conversation, the circuin Et*nces under which it was introduced, the ?ame of the Nmuio wi:h whom it holden. the language m v.-hicn it 1cm carried vm, the words used, and the name^ ef the pereons pres ent. it any. be die himself and the ambassador cf the Pope. It i.-> not too much to ask. in ad dition. ul Mr. B., that he state why it is that ?n authentic iccount of this bugbear 'conver sation has been withheld lur so long a tune, and why it was found convenient to herald it to the woild in s:i iu-i?o.-.;:ij? a form, at a litne when it was impossible to relate and denv the coirectness of the inferences drawn therefrom before the day of the North Carolina election." He also feels sure that* il the name uf the Hon. James Campbell ws- ever mentioned in Madrid in connection with the Postmaster Generalship before hi? actual appeuntineut, it was only after the Washington letter writers had connected it with the position, which it will he remeui! .;rcu they did immediately after Mr. Buchanan and his friend.- begun to take Interest openly in securing for him the position. The Union, in the course of this article calls attention to the fact that while Gen Scott was courting the -rich Irish brogue," and the ?'sweet German accent, *' Pierce was being abused soundly for the existence ef the " Cath olic disabilities " clause of the New Hampshire Etet" Constitution, for wh:ch h',> was held re eponsible by many uf the very mon who at this time unde: take to vary their mode of electioneering against him; accusing him of bargaining with the Hierarchy in the United States, tos.ll us all?body and breeches?to the Pope By the bye, ihere is much indeed in the Union's desire to kn< w in what language Bar ringer coiiveieed with the Pope s Nuncio, in Madrid Barriuger spe ?ks the English lan guage only, and the chance-- are twenty to or.e that whoever the Nuncio wa*. if he spoke half a dosen language or more, English was not cne ff ? heci. Ihere is a whopj>er out anaon/ them, and the onus of disproving that it lies at his d>_jr. certainly rests on Barringer.

Tho Fraud* in the Late Washington Mu nicipal Election?Wc find the following let ter in the Organ of the day before yesterday : To the Editor ?/" the American Organ : Sir : The report is generally prevalent in the community that I was to be indicted by the Eand inuuest of the nation, for a violation of w in reference to permitting a voter, and that voter my son, to cast a ballot at the election in June. Said voter was born in this city up wards of twenty-<?ne years before said election; had scarcely ever been out of said city, resided in the ward in which he offered to vote, was registered by the assessor, and had paid his school tax; and ira* a free white wuilc citizen of the. United States, tva* neither a vagrant ttor non compos menti?, or had been conrtef td of an infamous crime, and. I might a id, never hore the name of a roirdu. In accordance with the rumor, pn Friday last I was arraigned as foreshadowed. I have, in my capacity a* a justice of the peace, maJe many arrest*, and agisted in arresting jterson.-*, when sticks, stones, pistols, guns ami knives have been brought in requisition, but never be fore had l' any tear; this time I admit that I f nailed my adversary. In the other knowing my men, I boldly met them : 'it-* here was a sneaking cowardly rnffiim Touching behind the grand jury, sending a trip of paper, with the name of tbe witnesses, hu* endeavoring to stab my reputation in the Krk, and send foithtothe world that I was ii'licUnl for frauds at the election , but. thanks o justice and right, I came off unscaihed. not vrAsUaiding the feeling of a portion of the finest es arraigned against me. As I am en kavoring to ferret out the man who moved in :his> ina.tter. in which I have hopes of succeed ?g. 1 will at pre-cnt defer any other remarks, tut thall at some future time come before the public vnth a full statement of a!! the matters :onnec*ed with my acts a. commissioner of elec tion, the result ol which I fear not. Tuomas C. Dosn. The writer of this lettei has long held his prc-cnt office of justice of the peacc in this com munity, and has before acted as one of the jjnnuiasioners of our municipal elections. It *ill therefore be evident to all that he must luc ki'.own the qualification with reference :o age nfeessary to make one offering his bal ot a legrl voter here. That qualification, in he plaia letter of tho law. is, that he must ihvc been twenty-one ye^rs of age on the 31** >f JJectmbrr nextprectditig the election There - no our *ion whatever a* to this requirement. ?o one having ever disputed it legally, and it liaving been iifihmed time aud again by all 1c ^a! authorities. It will be perceived that the writer of this letter avoids tho true issue, and about his son's haviag beeu " bor^ in this* city np trards of twenty-one years before *aU elec tion " Tho: e iamiiiar with the plain require ments of the tbarter in this natter, will understand at a glance that thus to attempt to change the true is-ue i- to essay to deceive the public, t > whose sympathy the appeal is made. We are curious to know who had the \ uth in question fraudulently to the i. setior as eligible to be on his poll 'fiat.. His name never would have been found iherc, as a matter of course, but through a misrepresen tation of his apt-, which (his age) the father i :u t have known well. To believe that the lather did r.ot know that the fact t'aat he had l'2ca so returned on the poll book <11 xl not make btiu a kjjftl voter ia Washington if iiot tweaty ? ?ne years of age 011 the *'l?t < f December next preceding the election, w ill bo to Relieve him. under the circumstances of his connection with the Administration of the law here and of hia previ< us service as a commissioner of elections, utterly non compos mentis. \Y e congratulate him on tho adjournment of the grand jury before, rather than after the ap pearance of his letter printed above; other wise, the effort to indict him of which he speaks so indignantly, might have resulted ve ry differently indeed. Whoever the j*rsoa may be who called tho attention of tuio grand jury to the case in point, atter the uppearance of this singularly impotent effort to justify hk reception of his son'e vote under yuch circum stances, that per.-on can hardly fail to receive the thanks of the most of those in this commu nity whose g^xi opinion is w<>rth having, how ever much Mr. Thos. C. Doan may be enraged against him. The letter itself tells the tale of t c manner in which the Know Nothings car ried tho recent election hure, in terms practi cally quite as strong as any we have felt it our duty to use sirce the fourth of June, ultimo. If is to be hoped that more of the Know No thing commissioners of th< late election will make a eleua breaat of it, after the same fash ion. The Fcvot at Forts'j.ou^h, V? ? Since th<?
