The Intelligencer comment* at length on the Jast war aud State news from Europe, remark ing that while the Allies are building new "work* for the attack the Russians are build ing still stronger ones for the defence of Sebas pol. Or, iu other word", that a triumph for the Allies before Sebastopol is now further off than e\er. Pclliasier. it seems. is opposed to any movements of the Allies from before Sc bastopol for the purpose of attacking or occu pying any other point. Hi* policy is to de vote all their means to the preservation of the present seige, and that only. Qf the retire ment of Lord John Russell from the Palmes ton minis'ry, the Jnulligencer says : 4' The rupture |in the British House of Com mons and Ministry | was consequent upon n motion to censure Lord John for hi* eourse in the Vienna negotiations. His political adver saries accuse him of equivocation ; but we much questicn if they ever convict him of so I dishonorable a charge. Error of judgment they may prove, but we have much mistaken the character of the man if it shall ever be ehown that he has acted dishonestly or fa Is* lv The fact we take to be simply this : the nation would have war. the war has proved disas tr us, and the nation mn?t have a scape-goat upon which to lay the tin of their own folly, i-h >rt-sightednesa. and disappointment Lord John, it seems. willing to accept peace oi> terms which the British tfonmment?mo..* unwisely, we thir.k?rejeeted : and now. like many an honest politic i 111 before him. he mu?t I ay the penalty of trying to save the dis?aii.? ed public freta ita own fatuity. The circum stances which gave Lord Ruseell this pre-emi nence were the disclosures he maue in his tpeech of the Rth inst. (cited in onr editorial columns of yesterday) respecting the want of unanimity between himself and n?s colleagues on the subject of the war?in other words, thst he, as British Plenipotentiary, expressed him self at Vienna in favor of the peace proposal* mooted by Count Buol and approved of by M. Drouyn tie l'Huys. hut that on returning to England he either did not eommunicate tho??? sentiments to his colleagues in the Govern ment, or suppressed his peace opinions and re tained office in a Ministry pledged to wsr'' * cm* * * "Thu feeling an this matter had grown so high that the exigence of the Ministry was put to the test by Sir E. Bulwer Lytton mov ing? " ? That the conduct of the Minister charged ' with the negotiations at Vienna, and his con ' tinuance in wi&ce *?e a responsible adviser of ? the Crown, have th?keu the confluence which ? the country ?houM place in those to whom the ! ? administration of puWic affairs is entrusted.* " Nor is this the only attack to which the J Ministry is exposed, Mr Roebuck having moved for a call of the House for July 17th, ?) ??n which oecasion the whole force of all see tions of the opp??rition will be brought to bear. " Contradictory reports were afloat as to the course Lord Pa!merst<>n would pursue. Sonic surmised that he would try to assuage the norm hy accepting the resignation of Lord Russell, and others supposed that Lord Pal merstcu would evade furthcT responsibility by himself retiring. Another report Is. that when Lord K?*HI goes 'Hit he will take the Grey section of the C** inet with him, and that L?rd Palmerfton will fill their place* by more de cided men out of the liberal ranfc. And, finally. Tumors from other quarters whisper of Lord I>erby a* the coming man with another coalition Cabinet." The Union laughs over the discomfiture Kenneth Rayner has received at tlie hands of Mr Barringcr. saying in the course of his re marks: " He is a^pretentat Saratoga Springs, in the Slate of New York, and he haa stated t-o a gen tleman from tbi* city, of unquestionable intel ligence and integrity, that the conversation with thelmcuio of the Pope concerning the cabinet of President Pierce, which has been made the foundation ot so iuu< h falsehood and i calumniation, tru?*pi red sub*e<fiient!y to the inaugunuion oj March, 1>J53, and to the re ception of the intelligence, thereof, and of the name* of President Pierce's cabinet, in Ma drid. ?? Mr. Barringcr r.lso stated that he had ad dressed two letter* to Mr. Rayner, of North Carolina stating the time of the conversation, and its ci re urn stanccs and purport, and asking that geutieman to do all parties the justice to state the fart* in :he ease, but that Mr R had ?ui*prts*td both Utters, and had wholly refused to correct the falsehoods in the preni ires. ? Mr Barjrrnger also expressed his purpose to publi.-h his last letter upon the subject to Rayner iu a few days, it the proper correction and retraction was not made by that gentle man ??

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Kenneth Bayner'a Mare's Nest.?The fact that Kenneth Rayner was the author of the printed and spouted version of Barringer's Pope's-Nuncio-stajy, If nothing else, wai suf ficient to load us to discredit It from the start. Rayner was once in Congrew, where he enra rd the reputation of being an exceedingly " scattering" man in his system of warfare on his* opponent*, and passed for as unscrupulous a partiinn in a melee on the floor, about, at any man so far sent from any State to the House of Representatives of the United States. He dealt largely in hyperbole, tho habit being an incident to his mental organization, for which he could hardly be said to be ru;ponei b'e: as it was, as it is to this day. a part of his nature to see a mountain in every mole-hill an the surface of ,thc acts or policy of those to whom he is oppoeed, and a mule-hill only in every mountain excrescence thut disfigures his own side. We knew at a glance, that however mon strous Barringer's original story was, had stretched it wuuderfully ; that it was ??a^n his natur" to retail it without dressing it up in the rna-k and skin of a " raw-hea l and bloody bones.' It seems that Bar ringer has fixed on him the fact that be did so. The Union'* emphatic denial of the story, a' louided altogether in fiction, if not mali.-c, and the Baltimore lit publican's scorching re buke of the mendacity of attempting to elec tioneer by means of the circulation of such barefaced and inexcusable falsehoods, have together forced Barringer out of his hole. The ex-editor of the Organ (who, when figuring at the heal of a newspaper, loved nothing so well as to devote his columns to the dissemina tion of foul eggs from mares' nests, which were so silly on their face as to make men of com mon sense laugh over his want of practical brains, us illustratod in his apparently firm belief that the community were such fools a to be gulled with any and everything wonder tul in his Pierco and Forney stories.) having repeated in his fourth of July oration Ray ntv's utterly nutrue version of what Barringej t'M him, initiated the investigation which proves that the stry?i'or which all of them, originator and retailer. Nos. 1 and 2, are re spon: il'le?is utterly untrue, false in its origin. f<?l.?e in its details, false in all its elements. as the Union said of it The result of this in dustrious gentleman's labors was tho extrac tion of letter# from Rayner and Barringer to him. in which Rayner admit* that Barringer refuses to substantiate what he retailed as rooming from him. and from Barringer a letter, which he ^uotos a; follows : " You are mistaken as to the purport of the remarks made to me by the representative of the Pope at Madrid. It was not that he knew beforehand that Mr. Campbell would be ap pointed.. and sis n member of the Catholic ehur?-h ?>r Thar he knew anything about it be fore the appointment was actually made. What f have sail, an*l what I rtjicul m, that before I find an,j rrrtnxn nevt of tin formation of tkt V a fan t. and while its constitution was ?still tn doubt, a id the subject of conjecture "* pi-Hie mind of Madrid, he told me that Mr. Camp1"/1 teat uppvinted, and. that hi was a L\ithol -c. which was the first infor mation I find of 'either fict The reader wi*l perceive, from what Barrin ger says, that Rayner's version of the story was a regular " ten thousand catj" one. It seems that, if Barringer is to be believed in such a ease, the Nuncio was first to inform him of Judge Campbell's appointment to the Postmaster lienors'ship? that'eall; thougj L* does not say whether this took place five min utes, one hour, one day. or one week before he learned the fact through his American let ters or newspapers, or how long before it wa - known to ail in Malridwho took interest in American public affairs. Those who know the customs and the perfection or the diplomatic arrangements of the governments of Europe are well aware that. except in particular emer gencies. the despatches of Spain, France, Eng land. Ac., Ac., are sent between London and Madrid, or \ ienna. or Berlin, and return dig pat jbte received in the time it takes tho.* ol the Lnited States, (often sent to save expense, by straggling American tourists who stop along the way to soe the sights.) to reach MadriJ, Vienna, or Berlin, or any other European capital to be named. So it was the most n*t ui al thing in the world that nearly eve jy diplo matist in Madrid (of whom the Nuncio was one) should km w the composition of the Cabi net oi Pre.-ideut Pierco before Barringer did, more especially as h;* speaks no language but the English, ami that ind.ffcrently well, ex cept, it may be, the dialcct of Cherokee, spokt n in his younger days by the real Native Ameri cans indigenous to his section of North Caro lina. Barringer served long in C ingress, and is as well known iu Washington, almost, as the town pump. Thus he u well known to have been a congressional blow coach; that ie a thtck-ikulied man?though a correct ami weli-iucasing gentleman. He wai also famous as a Motuiiirr Prop Tard?a mau prone to be a little late in every thing. Realine-s never was an attribute of his. and never will be ; and it is extremely likely that all the re-tof the diplomatists in Madrid knew whom President Pierce had selected for his cabinet ? ffi<ers from tuenty-four hours to a week be fore Mr Barringer be< aine possessed of like information A< to the fact that Mr. Post ma-tor General Campbell is a Catholic, that *as published in every opposition paper in the land for months before the Cabinet was formed a- also in nearly every newspaper in Europe; for it wa- iu all that time, the subject of heated iieyspaj?er distuasiou on this side of the Atlan tic. In saying that he did not know thut fact until informed of it by the Nuncio, Barringer merely proves that we are correct in deicrib iug him as emphatically a Monsieur Trup Turd. Every man, woman and child in the I 11 ited States, who reads the newspapers, know it from the date of his defeat on account of his religion, when running on theHemocr - tic ticket in Pennsylvania: and every person in Europe who reads American papers or L nited States correspondence of European pipers knew it withiu a month or so after the Presidential election; as in a week after tha event it was generally known here that Mr. Buchanan w.uld urge Judge Campbell, CatL olio though he was. for the Postmaster Uenera' ship; which tact was known over Europe aoon afterwards as stCam and the telegraph could bear it thither and di*oem....?te it. But even crediting Mr. Barringer with all his proverbial obtusenese, as Judge Cimpbell s religion and the probabilities of his appoint ment to a seat in the Cabinet were discussed in nearly all the papers of the opposition for seme four month* before he was actually called into the Cabinet, that hs (Barringer) should nar* heard of bis religioa for the first time after ins appuyitmect, a story too nonsensical for .-ane folks to believe on any other hypothesis thau tha: of his having taken due care not t> read an American paper on hit own aide in poli- j tics, from the election of Frank Pierce to hi? In auguration, and also to have as assiduously ej? chewed the American correspondence of the only other newspapers he could rea 1?of those published in the English language oh the oth er side of the Atlantic. The " whopper'- is still out?that's clear. Northern Enow Nothing! ?The Alcxan- i dria Gazette ig in ec-tacies because it find* that the whole of the Know Nothing party of the northern States, over whose original vic tories in Ma?achui?etts. New Hampshire. ; Ohio. Indiana, Iowa, Ac., it Almost got beside itself with joy. has not gone over to the Abo- j litionists. It docs not pretend to claim that more than a mere handful of that party at the j North still even profess to stick to the defence j .,f the rights of the States. Even the Gazette .ippears nt length to realize that the emphatic I and leading result of thu ri-'e of the Know Nothing party has been simply to strengthen. We are not charging that any considerable or influential portion of the southern Know : Nothings arc affected with abolition pro clivities, or even with a willingness to give the northern abolition portion of their politi cal organization their way on the slavery question, for the sake of that union and har mony among them which they know to be es sential to success at the poll* in 1856. But it is now as clear as the sunlight at noon that ! the portion of the northern Know Nothing I party claiming to be national iu its aims. doc not number ni.c-fourlh the portion who have j joined the Abolionista, and made in conjunction | with them the new (ho ealled^ Republican ' party, the alpha and omega of whose creed is ; the restoration of the Missouri restriction, the i repeal of the fugitive slave law. and the ail- ; mission of no more slave holding States in the ! Union. It would have been utterly impossi- j ble for tliis new party to have gathered within j its folds half its present members. bul for the . existence of the Know Nothing party, which led off so many thousands from the Whig and Democratic party organizations into a trmsi i ion state, a.- it were, capitally fitting them -hortly (as at present) to go the one step further into an organization based solely on the pui'posc of the destruction of the guarantees i ?>f the Constitution of the United State*. Thu.- j the South may thai.k Know Nothingisin. and i that only, for the blackness of the cloud* ! which bang over tb* "HUf-e of her right throughout all the nonslatcholding State.-. It Galla.?T he aetionof the Administration, iu dosing those who have taken secret oaths to labor to bring about the proscription of eyery man, of every nation and creed, who differs from them in their politics, (which they are jfraid and ashamed to avow like honest nnd true-hearted American citizens.) is creating my amonrt of consternation among the sworn pro&eribors. They are talking about the pi\> s^ription of men by the Administration, be cause they are American born and Protestants in religion, a? though all tbc world docs not know that three-fourths and more of the Gov ernment's employees here arc persons of that description?men as emphatically opposed to Know Nothingisui as the President himsif. Their point it* to disquiet the fact thai those being turned out of office and place on ac count of their Know Nothingisui are those who wear two faces under a hood. Not one of ineui has yet cine forward lo complain, in point of the Administration's action in hi* case, who has not proved himself to b*? ? mem ber of the Becret-oath-bound-proiciiptive-po litiuul-club, aiming to oust from office the Ad ministration and every one of their neighbor and fellows in the employment of the Govern ment.
