We are moving our presses into a fine new press room, where we will have greatly in creased facilities for the execution of Job Panrme. Our other facilities for the neat, expeditious and economical execution of Job Printing, of almost every description, have likewise been greatly extended of late. So we are now prepared to give satisfaction in that line to all Counsel before the Court of Claims will find the Star office the best place in Wash ington for the immediate and correct execu tion of their printing jobs. Give u* a call. THE WEEKLY STAB, for this week, is a rich, racy, and truly valu able number, embracing a variety of items to mit every taste and condition. One among other evidences of the popularity ??f the paper Is its rapidly increasing subscription. We daily receive letters. enclosing the ca?h for it, from far and near; and even send a large number of copias to the Pacific coa?t. includ ing Oregon and Washington, the people of whieh Territories have a proper appreciation of the good and indi?peu?able things of life in ihe newspaper line. Subscription price 51 25 per annum, or 3c a single number. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Intelligencer is devoted to new? and literature today. The Union copies from a Georgia paper h strong letter from the venerable ex-Gov* rnor Troup of that State, against Know Nothing ism, and counsels a union between the ilards and Softs of New York. WASHINGTON HEWS AND GOSSIP. Wholesale Falsification?If those who in dulge in such practicescruld be made toblu?h by what would make an honest-hearted man flee his country, the rebuke which Barringer ha.- accorded to Kayner would bo apt to put a stop to tbe wholesale manufacture of slander* *>n the President, the Cabinet, and the Catho lics, which, just now, make all the staple of Know Nothing argument. The Buffalo Com mtrcial Advtrt\*er, emphatically an 'all-thc decency" paper not long since, Is quite a mendacioui ami a little more adroit than Rayuor v?. in its efforts in the same line; as it takes care to avoid referring to particular Individuals as having been guilty of the enor mities it charges on the bishops, priests, and members of the Catholic church. It invent* a story, (based, evidently, on the statement.* of Rayner, which Barringer pronounces false.) pretending to give an account of incidents in the last Presidential election, in Pennsylva nia, wherein the bishop?, clcrgym-sn. and members of the Catholic church are represent ed to have entered into a con^pirncy to defeat General Sett, which it says they carried out by secretly voting against him to a wan?Cath olics from the border countics of New York going over and voting in Pennsylvania : Now. the truth is, and the BjtlTalo Silver Grey organ knew it well, the treachery which Scott expe rienced came from the immediate coterie of that journal, and all they could control. All versed in polities are aware that the Silver Greys played false to Scott, and that from that day U> this, because they did so, the dominant (Scott) wing of the Whig party throughout New York win have nothing to do with them It puts the boot of sccret plotting to bring about the defeat of Scott on the pait of persons p?>fe?*ing to be hi? frieuds, on the wrong leg, at it fits its own better than that of any other. The Catholics voted ac all others do, as individuals, chooeing for themselves; and they were, for the moet part, sennihle enough to vote for no one who might be ac cused of being even remotely under Silver Grey influence, which will sell its soul at any time for thirty pieces of silver, and stood ready to larter adhesion to proscription of the Catho | cs, for a chance for power, as the result prove?. The Catholic people, who ate a? tenacious of their rights guaranteed in our constitution and laws as it becomes freemen to be, did not re quire the interference of their clergy to in duce them to do ao, and all stories setting forth any plot or plot* to that end or any such combination whatever, are simply barefaced falsehoods, dentate, utterly destitute of foun dation in truth. But *ome how or other the ?oncoctors of such man nests slwaysmanag# to overshoot their mark, and thus exp.,-0 tfcem aelvis, as in this instance, in the following clause which we find in the article on which we are commenting: ?'He [Ju'lgo Campbell, Postmaster General] was then sent to a Jesuit institution, educated in their scholastic a* well a* their aoclal tenet and came out a tiniihed lay disciple of tfiat aeademus, the walls ci which are bla**>n*?d with such mottoes a? ? The end juitifi?s the mean?,*4 D-. evil that good may follow,??Men tal reservations are to be practised in commu nicating with the hexetio,' and tbe moral teach ings Now, if the editor of the Buffalo Comw t%al Advertiser will bring proof that such mottoes are on the walls of any J?*uit or other Catholic College is the United States or have ever been on then, we wil] take all the rent of his numerni- falsehood* in the article, for truth. But the fact is. he quote*, ^ inscriptions on the walls of Catholic college- in the United States, the very mottoes on which the Know Nothing principle aud practice b founded as avowed by iU leaders and teachers, many of whom justify themselves in inculcating p*ni. lentiary morality to their followers, on the plea that it is necessary to fi^ht the devil with Are?to u*e againat the Catholic- the weapons, for using whieh. they *ay the Catholics ahould be made, by law, a proscribed and Inferior clatd in this country. Their notorious practice on on the dishonorable and dishonest mottoes. Ihlsely charged above a? being poeted on Ue walls of Catholic colleges, it ia, which iu a great measure induces the wall informed, hon est hearted and patriotic portion of the Amer ican public to look upon Know Nothingum fts j the moral leproey of the age. As for the portion of the Buffalo Commercial AJvertxtfr't stories which have reference |o the Postmaster GeneraJ personally they are one and all, so notoriously false as to be un worthy of notice. We can attribute them to no other cause than a desire to weaken the contrast between the integrity and efficiency of Judge Campbell'i administration of his trust, and the notorious habit of Postmaster General Hall in bartering the interests com mitted to his charge (as Postmaster General) for temporary favor fbr Silver Greyism. During nearly all the time Hall held the office, it was notorious among the members of Congress1 that he was baying and selling in the discharge of his duty; the purchased commodity being promises of affection for Silver Greyism, (the quinteeweoa of corruption in American public affairs,) the price paid being office under the Pott Office Department here and everywhere else, special eofttracts. extra allowances. Ac. Tillibuateriug Journals ?The New York Sun is a very capital sort of a paper, though it has a habit of defending and glorifying ev ery eonceivivjde scheme of piracy on land. We are expecting daily to find in its columns warm arguments in favor of the entire propriety of the slave trade, notwithstanding its late frcc 1 soil proclivities. The truth is, it is so bitten ! with the Cuba filibustering mania, as that it cannot distinguish wrong from right in connec tion with anything in the shape of au effort on the part of North American* to appropriate lands the property of others, without as much a- ?aying. by your leave, sin Tbi? tendency on its part it exceedingly unfortunate, as itg conductors will realiie if they live to grow much older The Effing Fmt, too, that, not long since, mm i><"iouiK'ing Walker?of expedition fame? a T". b?r ami pirate, is now the chief de fend^r and ~l'?rifter of the Kinney expedition. Wherein do they differ ? For the life and soul of uk. if they differ in a single element or partic nlar, we cannot discover in what. Walker's i exploits in Central America are now we'll ku<>wn to be precisely like tho.se which ren dered his name taiuou? (or rather infamous) in Mexico. He robbed. jlundered, ami murder ed both sexc*, all ages. and burned some house*, and under c?ver of the smoke of the tire <'1 them, he stole a wihooner and escaped? runaway' If the pet of the Evening Tost, the kinney expedition, numbering some nine teen similar customers, all told, succeed in getting to Central America, the probability is that they will be hung before they can get an opportunity to piny Walker's game; as we know that ample preparations have been made at San Juan del Norte, and. indeed, all along the coast in that quarter, to give them just the reception which it would have been well for the cansc of humauity if it had been accorded to Walker and his companions the instant they set foot on the west coast of Nicaragua. We fancy that no right-principled man in this country, who is aware of the conduct of those pirate* there, doe? not regret that they were not ''strung up" within half an hour after they landed. Very Curious Disclosures?There is much conversation iu diplomatic circles here, in te speot to certain recent emi-olhcial public,( tions in the French Monittur, disclosing the views and plans of the Count de Vergennes. It ?wms that, so long ago at* ?4. the period of our Revolutionary war. there was ? utertained I in France great jealousy of the progress ol' I Russia on the side of the Back Sea. That was I before the Russians had driven the Turks out I of the Crimea, and re-annexed that pcnisula I to the Muscovite Empire. At thut time Eng I land held back, and France was unwilling or J unable to act alone agjiinst Russia. We have 1 come across an item of old American diplomatic J history, which iscalculatcd to breed reflection. | While Mr. Jay was at Paris with Dr Frank I lin and Mr. Adams, regulating the treaty by which Great Britain acknowledged the inde pendence of the United States, he wrote to I Gouvemcur Morris, under date of September I 2L 17S3. from which we extract the following 1 very remarkable expressions : "You have heard thnt the Ottoman aud I Rus-ian empires are on the point of unshcath I ing the sword. The objects of the contest are I more easy to dircern than the issue ; but ii I Russia should extend her navigation to C??n I ??antinople, we may be the better for it. That circumstance is an additional motive to our I forming a tieaty of commerce with her. * * But, wliatevei we have to do abroad, it is of I little consequence when compared to what we I have to do at h? m** f am perfectly convinced I that no time is to be lost in raising and main I taining a national spirit in America." I Sonir people may think that what Mr Jay I considered good doctrine in 17b3, may not be I bad in 1855, whether as applied to the foreign I or domestic interests of the United States. Way Letters.?Persons who arc in tho habit J of sending their letters to depots rather thin I to pout offices, to be mailed, run the risk of a I delay of at least a trip in their arrival at I their destination. Tho route agent's uuty is I to assort and mail, while the train is in motion, j the letters reaching tho post ojjiee after the I regular mail bags are closed. These, on in** I portent routes not unfrequently number so many as to leave him little time to mail those I that may be dropped iu the pouch at the cars, j He is then obliged to deliver such letters at I the post office at the end of his route, where, I the chance is, they are not received iu time to sond them forward by the mails by which they J are designed to be sent. Tbe Post Office Dr I partment is abused roundly for the detention of thousand- of letters growing out of the in crease of the habit of unnecescarily omitting to pool them in regular post offices, and then rushing them in haste to the car? as they aie I about to start. Gutta Percha.-?A board of United State* I Cavalry officers, consisting of Colonels Sumner J and Johnson, and Lieutenant Colonels Johnson J and Hardee, recently in session at the War I Department iu this city, have reported in favor of equipping the men of their arm of the ser I vice with a talma made of Gutta Pcrcha, reach ing down t<? the knee. Thia is. it strikes u?, I following '.he very sensible custom of the Texas J Rangers, who cannot be persuaded to carry I overcoats in any weather. They make a slit I in the blanket, (Mexican, or American when they cannot procure the former.) and slipping it over the head, ride in it in stormy weather with the ends hanging to or about the knees. I The talma, thongh a lighter coat, is a covering J cut on the same principle , and while, if majle of Gutu Percha, it is a positive insurance I against wet < r cold upon the body, it permits I just as much circulation of air around the per son as the weare r pleases, and also leaves the arms perfectly at liberty. The proposed change cannot fail to be a capital one, and the troopt will, with one accord, thank their officers foi bringing it about. The WMhingtm territory Boundary Dis pute.?We understand that the President will targe on Congress to provide, immediately af ter they come together, the means of making th? tfurvev, on our part, necessary to establi^, beyond future cavil, the boundary between our territory of Washington and that of Van couver'! island, and the rest of the possession* of the British Hudson's Bay Company lying contiguous to the territory in question. The House, last session, passed a bill" to that end, which was defeated in the Senate. Recently, the difficulties growing -.ut of misunderstand ings between the people and authorities of the two Governments, in that quarter, vith reference to the precise locality of that boun dary, have increased so as t?? be most harraFs ing and perplexing to both?thus proving the pressing necessity for the survey the Senate refused to order to be made. It is sinrcrely to be hoped that Congress will promptly legislate in this matter, and thus ptevent the recur rence of international bickering? in that quar ter, that can do no good and may be produc tive of much harm A Roorback.?The story of the Washington correspondent uf the New York lleralJ. tell ing of the ajceptance, at that point, uf a des patch ^rom Mr. Buchannn, recounting the particulars of an extraordinary visit to that gentleman of Lord Palmcrston. and the lat tcr'i desire to make confidential and unofficial disclosure? to hiin on some unknown subject of great interest to the United States, is utterly without foundation. The story ol' the visit in question originated in the brain of soma one of Kossuth's men in London who wrote it to a sympathizer here, by whom it was dressed up in its present habiliments to suit the wonder uiongering taste of the Ilcral;l'}> readers. Such is its true history. The California Mails.?Our jcorrsspoudent in San Francisco, who have complained thai 'hey arc unable to answer letters hy the fir=t return stsamer?the schedule being arranged for the departure of the downward steamer on the l*t and 16th of the month, often before the arrival of the Atlantic mail*?will be pleased t> learn that thi> inconvcnience is hereafter to be obviated by a change of the days of depar ture from Sau Francisco to the oth and 20th of each month, which are the day.* of departure of the California mails from New York. When the 5th and 20th fall on Sunday the miils will leave the day following. A Mistake ??' Ion, ' the Baltimore Washington correspondent, u-ually well-in formed in such matter?, has bcei> misled by the person to whom he is indebted for the in formation on which he ba.*:d the following paragraph in his letter of this morning " The post of Commissioner of the Land 0; fice has been offered to a .suitable pers ?n and declined.''

Willard's Hotel. ) Old Pot!*T Comkokt, July 27?. 1^05. { Mr. Editor : In a late number of the New York Herald a lengthy communication appears on watering places, which makes out that all arc but poorly supported, and attempts to ex plain the why and wherefore. Had the Her ald s corrvspoudent at this place been posted up ne would have mado an exception of Old Point, t??r never before has the establishmcn bad such a crowd as have been here since about the 1st of July; and a more fashionable and finer set of people I have never seen together at any one watering place; I will n'>t even exeept Cape May in its glory. There are a few f.tmiiies here that have come from Cape May and other 'laccs, and daily new names anu new faces rom all parts of the South are added to the already large company. The house is exceed ingly well kept, and the table is better by f tr than that of the United States Hotel at Sara toga, which heretofore has had the reputa tion of having the best at any watering place* The frigate Potomac, Capt. Paulding's Hag ship, has been towed down from Norfolk, and now lie* anchored off in full view. There are a large number of the officers of ihe new regiment quartered here, and their bright uniform (for they all dance) of an ??veil ing adds much to-the brilliancy of the ball n?om. There is a parade in the fort morning ^nd evening, and this attracts crowds, partic ularly wheu the new drill is being gone through The niott sedate faces bavo to relax at a sight of this grotesque performance. This exercise?new only in this country?is borrow *d from the French Major Garnett seems to be the professor in this particular branch. Col. Wright, who L- in command of the new icgiment quarterod here, is very jiopular, and *?as by his gentlemanly demoanor won the es teem. I can sal'eiy say. of all civilians. . The new Government \tharf now in course of construction under tbe direction of Col. Smith, will be, when finished, a very complete ai.d substantial t-tructure, and what has long been wanted. It ia surprising that there ha* ?iot been better tacilifles for landing long be fore this at a post where so much money has oecn expended in fortifications. Another thing ha.- been l<*t sight of: What would this ?? stronghold" do in ca=<j of u war and it should bo beseiged. There is not enough water to supply even the few that are now quartered nere. The complement of men to man this post is five thousand There was. some years iince, an artesian well commented, and, f -up oose, want of funds is the cause of its not oeing completed. Ex-Pre-sident Tyler ha* been sojourning here .or a low days, accompanied by bis amiable lady. Mr. .viUrcy here also, and oceupie* a iiiiet cottage near the hotel. This is hi^ first visit to Old Point, and he comes here for a few lay's quiet repose.

Five persons were carried out by this current be vond their depth^ and, owing to the total ab -ence of all provisions to guard against such a ca-utlty, two cf the party (the Rev.
