JOB PRIIVTlIfO* "We are moving our presses into a fine new press room, where we will have greatly in creased facilities for the execution of Job Pmixtisq. Our other futilities for the neat, expedition*, and economioal execution of Job Mating, of almost every description, have likewise been greatly extended of late. So we are now prepared to give satisfaction in that lice to all.

SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PBE88. The lntelligenctr continues its discussion of the right of a State to leave the Union, in which it ha* been engaged for some time past with the Fayettville (N. C.) Observer, saying. in the course of its remarks: " In our reply to the remarks of the Editor of the Observer on the topic of 4 Retaliation,' be supposes that we understood biin to main tain the doctrine that a State ? had a constitu tional right to secede peaceably and to this he answers: 4 We hold no such doctrine. 4 Peaceable secession is a humbug. But we claim the right to stay in ihe Union on equal terms, or, these denied, to to out of it by re sistance to oppression.' We understood our friend exactly a.- he has now frankly explained hi? doctrine; and it was because we knew him to Ie honest and sineere in his belief that his doctrine was true that we endeavored to convert h:uj to a different faith. We drill think that, in bis chivalrous readiness to resist oppression. be mistakes the oppressor. Ho blames the l nion It r conduct "hargeablc only to a sifter State. Seceding from the Union, if such a thing were admissible or practicable, whether pea e ably or by force, would not remove the came t>f comp an t that either has against the other. They would cherish the same opinions, speak of aai act towards each other in the same manner when sovereign independent States as now that they arc both members of one su preme Government. We asked if the South would be more likely to recover fugitive slave. from a foreign State than from a member of the I nion. The Union had shown itself competent and willing, we said, to enforce its owu law>, and we expressed a belief that this would a - ways be tn? case under any President. We l^ever said or thought that ttoe Union could si lence the grumbling and discontent* of its members; m r do we think it any pait of tLe duty of the General Government t?. iuterfeie until callcd uj>on by an aggrieved party, it will be time enough. we think, to talk about secession from the Union, peaceably or forci bly. when the Chief Magistrate of tue United totatei shall neglect or refuse to see the law* ot Cocxress executed. In the mean time, we think it would be decidedly more for the in terest of any State that may think itself ag grieved by a particular law to bear with pa tience the temporary inconveniences or eviis it may bring upon them than risk greater evils "J * rnuloilM whWh ovmbl aniUr no otiouiu stances be succes-fui.'' The Union !s exceedingly gratified with the practical demonstration (in the way of ntw subscribers) of the public's appreciation of its course upon Know Nothingi?m; and argue? with much force against the Maine liquor law. The Elections.?There are to bo g'-n*ral elections iu five Southern States in the month of August. Tennessee and North Carolina hold theirs on the day after to-morrow?Thur day. In the first they elect a governor, mem bers of Congress and the legislature ; in North Carolina, members of Congress only Ken tucky, Alabama, and Texas, elect on Monday nsxt, the 6th proximo, in all of which, State officers, members of Congress and legislatures are to be chonen. In all these five States the question mainly in issuo is Know Noth inginn PERSONAL. ....Hon. Wm.

Rtssia* Spies?The British army corres pondents report a good deal of excitement in the allied camps about Kussiau spies; several were believed to have been prowling about, and one had been captured, tried and shot; two others, who rede about, one as au English amateur, the other as a French officer, narrow ly escaped. Such watchfulness is n >w prac ticed in the allied camp, that their own officers are sometimes arrested and marched to heai quarters before their sure characters are as certained. Several Greeks, in the service of the allies, have been arrested on suspicion of being apicJ. fyThe beneficial effects of camphor aa an antidote to strychnine, are illustrated in a cam reported by Dr. Tewkesbury, of Port land, Maine. It appears that a boy was seized with convulsions, and it was ascertained that he bad just eaten a biscuit picked up at the door of an eating house, that was made for the purpose of killing rate, and eontained about one and a half grains of strychnine. The boy's spasms were so severe that imme diate death was inevitable though all the usu al remedies were resorted to. Camphor could not be introduced into tha stomach ca aotount of the continued lock-jaw. Accordingly itrtog injections of camphor were used, and the body immersed in a hot camphor bath, and 1a ft few boon the boy was compartively w#ll. ???????I WASHINGTON NEWS AND eOSIIP. Our Publio School* ?Among the most com mendable incident* whioh it has been our good fertune to witness for some time past, was the very great interest manifested yesterday, by a large number of our fellow-cif iiens, in thi ceremony of presenting the premiums to the most deferring pupils of the first nnd second districts of the Washington public schools. ai account of which, more in detail, will be found in the Starts local columns to-day. Old and young, wealthy and poor, the highly educated and those without that so groat blessing?all the grown persons who were there?as well a.? all the groat number of children of both sexes present, were more absorbed in the cercmonier than we never before Baw so vast a throng on a similar occasion. This is a sign of increae ing public interest in these institutions, upon which the future character of this community mainly rests. In this so great interest displayed, it struck us that we ?aw a promise of emulation on the part of all classes in this community to maki these schools institutions from which youtl may go forth to take part in the business ol lifo much better prepared than is ususil with graduates of such establishments. That is. really stocked and stored with much usefu' information applicable to one's every day af fairs and duties to society, besidosthe primary elements of nn English education?reading, writing, and simple cyphering?which, for tht most part, make up the acquirements of chil dren in public schools throughout the United States. Dreading imperfect education as be ing almost as bad as none, we look forward t< the day with great hope, when the public will accord, without direct charge for the service a substantial and varied education to all youths of both sexes who chose to avail them selves of so great an assistance to the succcs> of one entering on life, and blessing to those thrown in contact with such a person. The First Know Nothing.?An old Metho dist I'rieud of our?, who holds llunyan's " Pil giim's Progress'' next in his heart to the Bible while he looks on Know Nothingi-m as a de vice of the devil to cheat American inankini. out of all the elements of vital and truly evan gelical Christianity it now possesses, has founu in Bunyan, the real founder of the family he so reprobates, and accordingly sends us the fol lowing : " Much speculation has been indulged it with reference to the original stock, and from which the present delectable Know Nothing family spr&ug. Its origin is not very honor able, if we are to jud^e the family by th< Company in which it io found. Bunyan make, mention of old grandmother ' Know Nothing in his Pilgrims Progress thus: 'But. whei.

A number o! the bislmpsof the Catholic Church, s^me year since, recommended his periodical to the pat ronage of their flocks; nince that time his writings have become so much at variance with some of the doctrinee-of the Church tha' he has been compelled to publish the following card, which will bo found in the la^t page ol the April number of his review : M We notice with pain a disposition among >ur Know Nothing writers to hold the Bishop? whose names are on the cover of our Review ri ?:>onsiblfe for whatever sentiment or do .-trine i. f>und in our pages.

Brownson is now admitted by all discrimina ting readers to be deficient in that important ingredient of mind, common sense.

Properties or Chakcoal.?Wood charcoal possesses a high!/absorbent power for runno uiaeal gasses. sulphurated hydrogen, fulphu rous acid. Mnd carbonic acid gos. Thi* prop erty perfectly adapts it to the absorption ol putrid exhalations from decaying animal ho lies, a layer from one to two inches in thick ness being sufficient entirely to absorb the effluvia from large animals.

This arises from the fact that eharco.il absorbs and oxydiae* the efilu.i*. which, under ordinary circumstances, would bo evolved di rectly into the air; but within the pores of the ?h?r?oal they are brought into contact with condensed oxygen, and are thus subjected to a species of low combustion, their carbon being converted into carbonic acid, and theii hydrogen into water. Charcoal, therefore, instead of being antiseptic, is precisely the reverse. ITT* Letter from liou. John Minor Ifotts, of Virginia. Richmond, July 9,1S55. Messrs. Will. 8 Beer* Ac.
