EVENING STAK. WASHIEQTOE CITY: SATURDAY AFTERNOON *? THE WEEKLY STAB, For the present week, is a capital number, being filled with accounts of the most interest ing events of the day, both domestic and foreign, together with short tales, anecdotes, Ac. Terms, $1.25 per annum, or three cents the tingle number. 0PIB1T OF THE KOEWDre FEE88. The Intelligencer, dicussitg the pestiferous affects of the labor of demagogues and specious, ?elfish and ignorant advocates of change for the sake of change only, says : " Self-interest, open or disguised, is the moving impulse of all huirsn action, whether in individual or communities; but it is not ?very individual, nor, in a government like ours, every separate community, that oan un derstand what would moat surely promote its own interest. An ingenious demagogue, who lives by popular excitement and who knows how to season his harangues with ' the whole sa'e swindling of rhetoric.' may succeed for a time in charming the ears of the groundling and in so confounding the distinctions between right and wrong as to make either apper.r the other, as may best suit his momentary pur pose ; but the time for reflection must come, when reason will resume its sway. Inen will the multitude everywhere listen to the calm and sober arguments of the statesman and pa triot. whose w.sdom has been gathered from history and experience, and who, seeing the n*?"r~' ce ?nonces of every ^reat po litical movement, ?? able to point out what may be sale'.y purc..ed and what had best be avoided, lie kn?>*s that the interest and happiness of him if and family are so inti mately connected and bl^ded with the inter est and happiness of all, that nothing whi?ih is destructive of the one can lead to the ad vancement o|' tho other. His advice, there fore. though it may procecd from the motive common to human nature, may be trusted, because, along with his own interest, we know it has Ween the result of a thorough consideration of that of the many. It is one of the grvrf objections to the progressive ??pint that it haa raised up so many pseu do-reformer , who taking advantage of the excitements inseper Sle from the rapidity of mod?rn discoveries in the arts and sciences, as e.t the possibility of eqnal improvement in those branches of hum in knowledge which are founded upon immutable and eternal Truth. They are for reforming religion Itself, fur tLrowing aside all revelation but that which is daily i*adu to themselves, ny a series of mygtineati< ns of which iliey pretend to be the chosen ap? st!es and expounders. They seite upon <- popular idea, and. retaining its name. give it a morning utterly at vaniteo wit'- ,v.c original irupresiio Thus for example, it is ?? favorite idea with tue uitiaens of the United I? ates that m:\n is capable of self-government. T'.ese rretei.ded mystical reformers, but in reality interested factionists, carry this doc trine t ? the extent of maintaining that all laws are an u-urp ,ti< n upon tne rights of individ unK that every man should be a law to him f< li"; and this tn< y arrogantly declaim to be the will of the C. ator. Is it wonderful that a lew deluded individuals should be founl in ever} ?cetion of this prosperous c,.. try ready to be!?ve a doctrine so flattering to their ownseit importance? Our Constitution teach es us a very different lesson. Under that. auveretgnity belongs to the whole, not to the indiviou ; and *s have still faith enough in that soveici^nity to believe that it will be pow erful enough to put d.?wn all partial competi tors." The L hion expa iates on thedifferent phase-* in Know Nothingism presents itself in different sections of the Union?in Now Eng land, Louisiana, Ohio, New York, Pjnnsylva and e'scwhere; holding do-trines in one section as it does, dire-tly antagonistic to those it hold: in the other section. The Union also rejoices over the prospect of st union ct the so loug divided Democracy of Jiew York. ?

'ihe Tcwier Mill Explosion. The particular- of the explosion of Garesche's Powder Works (mention of which was made in our telegraphic column, yesterday.) ha- e been received The drying house of the establish ment, which is located in Eden Park, was bl wn up, as is supposed, through thecareless V's v. a workman. The home contained about one and a half tons of powder, and the ?xplor.on aud concussion resulting were tre mendous. The house had been in operation fcr ab >ui forty years without ai. accident, and was considered the safest house at the works. All counec* d with its operations were killed, at once. 1 ucy were blown to atoms, and their rem.iins were i- und at various distances?frim forty to two hundred yard* from the house. Tnree ot the woikuien were Frenchmen, named Eugene Porete. J<>aeph Du Pcarce and Francis Pi.-ier. A b< y named John Pugh wasalio em ployed in the liou .e at the time?all were killed.

The ^ugif.-.-er, Mr. Mit- h* il, was seated at hifc post, reading his newspaper, when the ex Slos ??n to?-l' nla -e Ho saw a barrel of pjw er expioie, out eKap.-i with a few slight bruise*. The mill was torn to pieces. There were aboat 1.400 lb . of powder in it, which is less thun U'llal. The trcM arotni th<? drying house were blown cp by the roots, and one or two horses In the i ,'jgliboriiOod were killed. A nan sot connected with the mill is is said to have been killed, but this seems doubtful. Drs Aj?ew. liush. Wilson and Draper, from Wiiiningtou, are present. Tendering all the aid in their power to the wounded. Mr. tiaresche iaya the explosion must have been caused by ouj of the Frenchmen who worked in the paekicg room and was addict ?d to sm^ a pipe; Mr O. had cuutioncd him two weeks pievious about it. and told him to quit the pre mise*, or Quit his pipe; and he ?uppoeed until now that he hal abandoned the practice. Chilton, the eminent chemist, of Vew York, says the ailanthus tree ia not poison flis; or even injurious tj health. ?a?????* WASHINGTON 1TKW8 kWD OOSIIP. Kanaaa.?'The correspondent of the Journal of Comwurre, under data of Washington, July 31, says: " The removal of Gerarnor Reader from the office of Governor of Kansas was a foregone conclusion, if we may trust to public rumor* prevailing about the same time, with the declarations of Secretary Davis. His laud operations, according to those rumors, *?re not the chief cause of his removal,?and, as yet, the other Territorial officers who took part with him in the purchase of Indian reserves, have not been turned out." It will be recollected that when the Presi dent felt callcd on to fend to Governor Reeder the charges against him, made officially by the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, which were so made shortly before Governor R. left Washington not long since, it was duly an oouDced and known to all that bis removal wad to be the penalty of his failure to elear them up satisfactorily. At the same time, a? all will remember, the other appointees of the President in Kansas were duly served with copies of the charges ?o made against them, individually, and were notified that they were expected to clear them up, under pain of re moval on ther failure to do so. Gov. Reeder'a reply having been received, and not proving satisfactory, he ha* been removed. The re plies of the other officers of the Territory are un derstood not to have been received as yet. We presume that their cases will not be acted un without the reception of their replios, until they may have had all the time to prepare them that can reasonably be granted. If they dcclino essaying to make satisfactory answers to Mr. Commissioner Manypenny's allegations of complicity in speculations in the lands of tho wards of the Government?the Indians? or essaying s j t.? do make a failure of it, they, too. will be removed. It is well known to all here that the President is determined to carry out his purpose of removing every man on whom speculation in the direct or indirect dis charge of hij public trust can be proved, or who mismanages tiie duties devolved on him. Not long since he caused his own nephew, who wa* United States dispatch agent at New York, 10 be removed for permitting letters to be put in the Government's dispatch bags that should have been sent across the ocean in the public mails. It will thus be perceived that he is no re.-pecter of persons in the discbarge of his duties, even where not to be must be peculiarly disagreeable. We are not charging that Gov. Retdcr and his" oC.'ial associates in Kansas defrauded or essayed to defraud Indians of that territory. Any speculations whatever in toe lands of the wurds of the government, or anything in their conduct that might be construod into availing iueuiselves ot their official positions to better their fortunes by speculation was wrong, and was setting an example, the evil consequences of whicn arc almost incalculable. The thought ful, and those who really de.-rire the well-being of our country, and that its government shall remain pure in all things, will (everywhere, when the Kansas slavery question and excite ment blows over,) applaud the President for the unflinching manuer iti which he has dis charged and will (in the cases of the other territorial officers) discharge his duty in this connection, in the face of his knowledge that all the demagogues throughout the non-slave holding States jptai.d ready to seize upon the fact of Gov. Reeder's removal when in the midst of a quarrel with the anti-abolitior.ists of the Territory (who were petitioning for his displacement on anoth< r ground) to get up the false cry that tho President is interfering to influence the character of the domestic insti tions of Kansas. In announcing his removal some days ago, we took occasion to explain that independent of the cau^e on which he had been displaced, the day for his usefulness in Kansas had de parted?that if the General Government hoped to discharge its duties as the guardian of the right.- and interest* of the Territory, Goveanor Reeder was uo longer the man for the occasion If a knowledge of the facts involved in the state of anarchy that hits for some time existad in ihe public flair* of Kausas, which should be Known to all readers of any newspapers what ever, be not-eutfti lent to couvince any sane man of the ueocfSity for selecting some other person as Governor of the Torritory, it strikes us that the followiug comments on the existing state of things there which we find in the New York Tutus, an ultra anti-Keeder-removal journal will opt.u tho eyes of the public to the hcllowness of anti-slavery jeremaids over the change made by tho President, by showing the pre-sing necessity for that measure of State : '?Porour own part we are not able to per ceive th<? wi-dom of the course which Gov. llceder has ?cen fit to pursue. Theoretically right in nearly ull his opinion, his action has been precisely that needed to deprive them of their weight. IK protested against the elec tion of members of the Lc^ sla'ure Ly the aruied invu.-dou, but neglectcd to declare the election r.ull. Proclaiming Kansas conquered by an aliefi mob, he abandoned the territory to the invaders and repaired to Washington, where be could neither do uor say anything whatever for its relief. And i.ow?declaring that he cannot recognize the assembly ut Shawnee as a Legislature, because it is ille gally assembled.?he doe* recognize it by treating their acts as legitimate, by receiving them, giving thtm consideration, and send ing in md^sages explaining the reasons for withholding from them his approval. Vetoing a legislative act is certainly a strange mode of iguoring the Legislature that passed it Ly receiving its enactments as Governor,? giving them due aud careful consideration, and sending in messages concerning them, he rcoognizes the la^ J J and legitimate existence of tne Legislature as perfectly anfl complete ly as possible. It mukes not the slighest diff erence whether he approves or disapproves its A veto recognizes the existence of a Legislature ju.-t as effectually as a message of approval. And so long as Gov. Reeder contin ues to send in messages vetoing the enactments of the Kans i Legislature, just so long will they have his own act* as evidence of their power to act, in opposition to his opinion that they are an illegal und non-cxUieut body. The Governor has shown, throughout his ad ministration, a vejy happy faculty of htulti fyi. g himself by just such discrepancies as these between his action* and his words. Kisft Carroll.?" We hope it will be borne in mind, and announced on all occasions, when quotations arc male, that Miss Anna Ella Car toll is a gi J-.nd daughter of Charles Carroll, of Carotltou, signer of the Declaration of lude } endence, neice of the Archbishop of this name, and daughter of ex-Governor Cat roll of Mary land." We extract the above budget of falsehoods from the New York organ of Cas^alli and other unnaturalized vagabonds and infidels who have undertaken to reform the institutions and Iawsof our country?the Crusader?with which Journal the lady in question has formed a scribbling connection, writing for it after the Miss llunkley-f&shion. Now, we have tho highest authority for stating that the Miss Anna Ella Carroll named above, is in no way connected with or related to the family of Charles Carroll, cf Carrollton, or with Archbishop Carroll. Ihe latter named was the cousin, and not the son of tha former, m the quotation would indicate Mis; Car roll never was a Catholic, and she is well known in this city, (where several years ago she conducted a school,) as the daughter of Thoe. King Carroll, Esq., of Baltimore, Md. The attempt to impose her upon the commu nity aa an original Catholic, and as a member of the highly respected family of Carrollton Carroll*, is like every other thing originating with the opponents of eiril and religions free dom. Will they have the honesty to " put history aright" in this case ? There never waa a clearer case of false pre tences than this effort to give consequcnce to the silly balderdash of Miss Carroll against a religious sect among us. It is, however, in capital keeping with the want of integrity of purpose which Know Nothingism so univer sally manifests.

Enough has been heard from North Ca.o lina to render it certain that the Democrats gain in most quarter* of the State. We think that Mr. Korr (Whig) has beon defeated by bis Kn<-w Nothing competitor, pjid that Braneh iDeui.) succeeds Rodgers (Whig) by a very large majority. In on? of the two rouiait.i:, outricts which were seriously contested. u? Democrats (in Raleigh) claim that Shaw (Dem.) has teeu re-elected, and it is not known whether Puryear (Know Nothing) has been re-elected or not. Winslow (Dem.) suc ceeds Ashe (Dem.) in the Wilmington district l y a large majority, though iho Know Nothings ?elt very certain of defeating him. Though ?tjty entertained similar hopes in the district "f T. L Clmgman, (from which we cannot i ave reliable and conclusive news for Bome ?lays.) they ha\e probably been defeated there by a heavy majority. The district of Ruffiu (Dem.) re-elects him by a considerably in creased majority. The fjllowing are the returns ?o far re ceived : L. O'Brien Branch, the Democratic candi date in the Fourth Congre*ional district, ha< b ;en triumphantly elected over Ja*. B. Shcp ard, Know Nothing. Ilia reported majorities are as follows: Franklin 381, Uranville luO Johnson 200, Wake 466, Warren 666, Nash 1 000?total 2,813; but Orange gives 135 for Miepard, which reduces Branch's majority to -',678. In the last Congress this district was r presented by Hun S. H. Rogers. The olec t on of Mr. Branch is, therefore, a Democratic gain. Two counties in the FInt Congressional dis trict. have been heard from, which givu a >iuall increased majority for tho Democratic ' -ndidate (Dr. H. M Shaw) compared with the last Congressional vote, when Mr. Sha* was elected by 87 majority. in the Second District, Hon. T. M. Ruffin, ihe Democratic candidate, is undoubtedly re elected by a very heavy majority. in the Third District reports aro favorably t? the election kof Winslow, Democrat, over David Reid, Know Nothing. In the Fifth District it is rerported that Guil i?rd county ha.s given 1,550 majority for Ed win <* Reade. Know Nothing, over Hon. John Iwerr, anti-Knoiv Nothing W hig. Northampton county gi*e!j Shaw 213, and llertlord gives Paine an increased majority. Elizabeth city and one other precinct, of Pas quotank, gives Paine 197. Two oUier precincts to be hear<l from, which will inorease his ina j ?rity over 100. Camden district give* Paine an increased majority. The eouaty (of Cam den) wili not fall much short of the usu.%1 ma jority. The Know Nothings of the district are sanguine of Paine's election (" In a horn. Ed. The following, purporting to b? the return Lorn the Tennea;oe election, has also been re ceived : LouiSTittE, August fe-Qtyt t*tFna of the election held yesterday in Tennessee, for Gov ernor, members of Congress, Ac?? come for ward very slowly. At far as hoard from Gen try (Whig and K N ) for Governor gains 2, 400 rotes, and Johnson (Dem ) gains 537 Totes The majority for Johnson, (Dem.) in 1853, was 3.575, with which rote the above yoU is oom pared. Louisville, Aug. 3?Evening.?In twenty fire counties in Tennessee, Gentry, Whig and Know Nothing, for Governor, has a net gain of 1,500 votes as compared with the Governor's vote in 1853, when Johnson had 2,258 majority. Nashville, August 3.?Davidson oounty gives at least 1.200 majority for Gentry. It save 634 Whig majority in 1853. The Know Nothings have doubtless carried the State. We have to say that the statement that twenty-five counties heard from in Louisville yesterday, as it cannot possibly be true, dis credits thefce returns from Tennessee. Up to last night the result in some eight or ten coun ties (including Davidson) might have been known in Louisville. However, very recent advices leai us to have rinall hope of the elec tion of Johnson. So it is probable that these telegraphic dispatches, manufactured doubt less to effect Kentucky, and the elections to ; ake place on Monday, will prove to be guesses ?'near the mark."
