SPIBIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Union replies to the jcremaids of the K?.w York Evening Post over Judge Kane's decision in the W heeler slave-stealing case The point essayed to be made by the Post, is that it virtually affirms the supremacy of the slave-holding States throughout the north? that it makes such of their laws as bear on slavery operative in Pennsylvania, over and ag.iinst the will of the people of that Common wealth. Of course the Post holds that the act of taking slaves in transitu into Pennsyl vania make? them free, and quotes Goodell and Wheeler's compilations (garbling*) of law. to show that such have bceu the decisions of the courts of Louisiana. The Union's point Is to discredit the quotations in question: which it ilofs by giving the portions omitted by Good ell and Wheeler, bccause they show that in the cases referred to. the question was with refer ence only to slaves taken to non-slavehnlding fctates to reside; not in transitu. The Union shows conclusively to our mind, at least, that the law, as it interprets it, has always been the settled law of the land. The Intelligencer deprecatcs the "mis cbievious idea of legislative retaliation." That is, of legislation on the part of the slave holding States, in retaliation for the nullifying acts, Ac., of Northern Stato Legislatures in violation of their obligations under tho Con stitution of the United States with reference to slavery The editor thinks that the South can a only embarrass and injure itself by any such action on its part. W ith due respcct for our extemporary of the Intelligencer, we ask leave to s-y that its syren song, in this connection, while it has utterly failed to influence the Couth, has long encouraged tho Abolitionists in their unconstitutional and revolutionary conduct. We never read in its columns an apology, direct or indirect, for Abolitionist and Abolitionism without more regret than we can express; as we sincerely believe that the weight of its character is doing incalcula ble mischief in the way of keeping up the prevalent impression at the North that the uth may be relied on to stand, patiently, any changcs in the Government of the United ?. tes. that Abolitionism may fancy to under take with the view of the administration of its (the Government's) affairs according tothe pe culiar constitutional readings of Messrs Sew ard. Chase, Hale, Sumner, Wilson <* Co. PEE80NAL. ? ?..Mr. Harri", U. S Consul at Ningpo. is at Willard s, and Hon. A Kencher and fami ly, of X rth Carolina, and Rev. J.

The Fever at Norfolk. A res,dent of Norfolk, Va? who is evidently In a very j^rturbed state of mind, indeed, with reference to the fever, writes to hi* friend in this city as follows: i.

Col Whe?ler and the Fiilibuateri ?The Journal of Commtrc* k oorreot in refusing to credii the silly story of some one in Granada (Central America) accusing Col. John II. H heeler, U. S. Minister to Nicaragua, of .-jmpathy with the late Walker expedition. W e know from free conversation? with that gentleman, whom we know as college mates know each other, that no one in the public service is more fnxjous than he is for the en tire triumph of the policy of his government with reference t<? filibustering. If Brissot and Hurnsby, who were killed in the last fight of the Walker expedition, were inclined to filibuster when they became members of his suite, the Jouriiul of Commerce may relv on it, they took good care to keep the fa.-t Iroiu his knowledge; otherwise he would not have touched them with a fifty foot pole. Men like B. and H.?American adventurers in Spanish American countries?are the most sjk. cious customers in the world. They are the men of all others to deceive a high minded, frank ami generous gentleman like Col. Wheel er, who suspects no one, until after experience, in his want of character. Boundary Line between the States of Ala bama and Florida ?Some thirty years ag), General Coffee, in executing surveys in Alc bama. adopted a line as the boundary between Alabama and Florida, aud, subsequently, the puMic surveys in Florida were closed upon it accordingly. By an act of Congress, in 1831. it was made the duty of the United States Sur veyor General of Florida to run the line on the thirty-first parallel of latitude. What is known as Whitner's or Ellicott's is now held to be the true boundary between those States. About a year ago, a contract was made by the Surveyor General of Florida with S. J. Perry, I nited states Deputy, for the survey and con nection of the public surveys on the Florida side Complete returns of these surveys have just been received at the General Land Office, and from them it appears that some one hun dred and sixty sections of public lands, which, according to Coffee's line, fell within the lim its of Florida, are now ascertained to be in the State of Alabama. We learn that such of these lands as have not A-eady been disposed of will soon be brought into market. Defects in the Laws.?In the law- of the last Congress dividing Ohio and Illinois eaoh into two United States judicial districts, it was neglected to provide where persons should be confined who arc comicted' by United States courts of penitentiary offences, there being no penitentiaries within the limits of either of the new districts made in the two States named above. I nder these circumstances the new courts find themselves unable to carry out the laws in such (penitentiary) cases. In Chicago a criminal has been convicted who must legal ly b - confined in a penitentiary, but he cannot be sentenced for the reason set forth above. The I nited Stales c? urt fritting recently in Clc; land, Ohio, has adjourned, in order to avoid the trial of tuch ca-es which are on the doc!"' t. which cannot be disposed of until after Conjrti^ thail amend the laws in question with ut getting it (the court) into a similar dilemma. Island* in the Mississippi, in Minnesota Territory.?In the case of a call for the sur vey of certain islands in tho Missis-ippi falling within the territorial limits of Minnesota, the General Land Office has directed that applica tion be made to the Surveyor Uenei il at Du buque, Iowa, who has been authorized to sur vey all the islands in his surveying district, except sue h as are very .-mall and not valua ble for timber or agricultural purposes The latter, however, may be surveyed by the United States deputy surveyors at the expense of applicants for the survey, who have to ruu the risk of becoming the purchasers thereof at tho time of sale, their applications for the sur vey, and the payment for that service con ferring on them no advantage whatever over other lemons at the time of the salo of the islands. The Fever atGosport, Va -We understand that tli* recent application from the authori ties of Portsmouth, Va., for the use of the Naval Hospital of the Norfolk station in which to place and treat the patients suffering under the fever now raging in the Gosport Ward (of Portsmouth.) were promptly an-wcred affirma tively by the Navy Department. All the ex penses of the arrangement are, of course, to be borne by the town and its citizen-.

It will be interesting to determine the geo graphical limits of the disturbance, and to as certain whether it was confined to any partic Inr geological formation If the direction of the shock were observed at a few places, the centre of commotion could be determined ; aud if the time were accurately known at dif ferent points, the velocity of the earth-wave could be calculated. An answer is requested to the following questions, viz : 1. Was the agitation felt by yourself, or by any other person in your vicinity ? 2 What w?s the approximate time of the occurrence ' 3 What was the number, and duration of the shocks' 4. What was the direction of the motion ? 5 What was the character of the disturb ance ??was it perpendicular or longitudi nal??was it an actual oscillation ??an up heaval and depression?or a mere tremor' 6. Was there any noise heard ' and if so, what was its character ' 7. Was the place of observation on soft ground, or on a hard foundation near the un derlying rock.i of the district? 8 Were any facts observed having appa rently an immediate or remote bearing on this phenomenon ' 9. What was the intensity of the force in reference to producing motion in bodies and cracks in walls' Notb?Please reply to the first question, if to no other?for an answer to it is necessary, in order to determine the limits of commotion The direction of the impulse might have been is .cri.uncd by observing the dilution iu which molasses, or any viscid liquid, was thrown up ascainst the side of a bowl. The remains of tne liquid on the side of a vessel would indicate the direction some time after the shock occurred. Goversor Rekt'kr.?A despatch from St. Louis, dated July 30, states that Gov. Recdcr, j of Kansas, has published a copy of his answer to Secretary Marcy's last letter. lie savs, in relation to the charge of having purchased half-breed Kansas lauds, that he has purchased 110 cuch lands. He thinks he has been treated very unfairly, because the President has called upon him for his defcnce, against charges of violating rules whiah are not specified, and ?is iks for their specification. !V1ARRIED.
