It is a tele graphic despatch from the telegraphic agent at Louisville, who is noted for hia falsification of facts in aid of the Know Nothing party We therefore place no confidence whatever in the truth and justice of the coloring he gives to this lamentable affair, more especially as in every previous ease of the hied, time and in vestigation has made it plain that the foreign bora citizcns, the weaker party, were the as sailed?not the assailants. We forbear further comment! until we have more information iu ! the premise^ : Locrsvmna, Aug. 7.?The disturbance com menced in the First Ward, where an Ameri can, named Burge. was stubbed, and beaten nearly to death by a party of Irishmen. The assailants of this man were arrested, but aftor ward three American* were fired upon while quietly passing the Uerinau brewery. A gen tleman riding iu a carriage with hid wife wns lircd on at the ?ame time. Then a complete shower of shot and hullots was rained from .??itne Herman bouse* on the crowd below, by which many wore wounde i. Ry thia time a mob ?>f aimed foreigners began to collect in the vicinity, and an indiscriminate slaughter of Americans commenced. Other Americans quickly crowded to the spot when the firing from the windows was continued. The Amori caii8 set lire to the brewery and sacked several houses from which guns bad been fired. Al>outo o'clock, in the Eighth Ward, three Americai a wen; attacked by a mob ol Irish with lire-anus?oue was killed aud the other wounded. The Iiish now took refuge in a house from which they contrived to fire upon tho crowd, killing two more Americans. After a desperate strugglo the hou*e was forced and the murderers within were captured. Oue of them was forthwith hung by the exasperated crowd, but a policcmm cut him down while he w;i> slill living. 11c was afterwards shot, however, and died this morning. f or some time longer a regular discharge of roles and guns weie kept up from a row of Irish liou.-os, on Kloventh street, on all passing Americans, sevcial of whom weio wounded. Finally, the Americans attacked the houses, lut failing to dislodge the Irish, fired the buihlicgs. Reinforcements of Americans soon arrived, with cauucu and muskets. Sitae of ihc Iri.'U ?fcre shot in the burning building--, and others were captured. No attempts wer? m -de to st ly the flumes. and s ane two or three nlocks of buildings were burned. Several other iires occurred in different parts of the city, adding to the tenuis of the night. '.the American*, having become perfectly in furiated, marched to the office of the Times, a Democratic paper, whiclf was only saved fron destruction by the iff^rts cf Mr. Prentice and oth\.r AmciLans, who urged the crowd to ab ati'-in i'roin further a.-ts of violence. Tn.s nwiniug more di.riurbances occurred. At 11 o clock a huge ia?b proceeded to the levee au>? uliacticd a of fri.ih houses, frcni whence, i. was reported, some thot* were tired this morning. * fcfior.s are being m-? le to restrain the mob, and it is hopid quiet v/ill be restored. ^ A report pi ova lis that three persons were killed this morning, but it is doubtful. liiKKE o ilock, p. m ??The ciiy is now quiet. k iity extra .police have been sworn in, and Judge Luilock and others are making tq eecaes at the Gouit-housc to tlie citiiens, requesting them to maintain the peace. Pub lic iceliug Las become comdderably calmed. 1 ive o ? lock.?Another outbreak is feared to-night, in coi.scqufci.ce of a laixo quantity of gunpowder having been found in the pos sc?M-?n of the iiisti in the Kighth Ward, which fact has greatly revived the excitement. Large numbers ol' Irish arc leaving the city this alter noon. Ihe Virgin.a Railroad Controversy.?Wo rire pained to find that the Richmond, Freder icksburg and P_>tomaj Railroad Company bear, with ill g race, the t ransfe r of the conti a it for car ry irg the great Northern and Southern mails from their cr.Krpmoto th?;seof the Orange and Alexandria and Virginia Central Railroads; en terprises of quite mu -h utility to the publi j as theirs, and in nil respects quite a> deserv ing of the patronage of tim Post Office Depart ment. In this ????uiitrv no Itailroad Company havs a perpetual right to contracts w. h the Post Office Department, which is bound to i'?ke icS bargains with those wh", in its judg ment. hi. <t answer it* purposes, time, regularity and expense biiog duly considered. The new arrangement, by which the old road loses its contract enjoyed lor g(? many yfar1, wa*. doubtless, made by the Department iu order to avoid the vexatious delays iu the transpor tation of the mails for some sixty miles on the Fotomac river, in the winter, when the chances are even that one out of every four or five tr>ps will, iroiu ihe ice. end in the failure to ??opnect. and thus throw the receipt and de livery of letters, Ac., over from twelve to twenty-l' ur hours, to the vciy serious incon venience and loss to bu-inef i men, in all tlio Atlantic c >;.?t country especially. For ten years p?st. accident?, or rather delays, ou the Potomac, Mii-ing from the ice. have caused more imprecation? upon the Post Offi-e Department than delays on almost all the rest of the n;ail routes in the country. Thi-- i- notorious. Pud the complaint* againrt such mishaps ure just ; though it never was just to charge them to the account of the De partment, which, in employing the Richmond, t icdericksburg, Potomac company, oL taiued for the public iho best possible mail fa cilities betweon Washington and Richmond fhc,' existing. Tlie completion of the Orange and Alexandria i.ud Central Railroads, how ever. have affiled the Department the mean * "f i"'sitiv? insurnnoe ugainst fumre delays irojn ice iu the Pvitoinic, an.I the Postmaster General has promptly availed the business public. >o vitally interested in this ineurance, ?.f the means in question, at an apparent extra cost cf 1 ? ihaa ten thousand Collars; though we uoubt whether, when ail the expenses under the old arrangement, of every descrij - Lou. are taken into consideration, the excess of co^t by the new arrangement will reach one thousand dollars. Wc havo the kindest j>oss:blc feeling for the Richmond, Fredericks burg, and Potvmac com pany. the ptoncer in successful railroad opera tions ia the Old Dominion, und believe, as we trust, that the rapidly increasing through travol will vciy shortly put into its coffers more than it loses by the new arrangement which the Department has felt called on to make, liut the convent nee and prosperity of the great business community is of far more importance to the public than that company's -rirtcreft*; and wa feel well assured that public oj inion, certainly after the experience of a single winter, in avoiding the tiansporUtion of the great Atlantic-cc a-t mails on tho Poto mac, will superinduce a very unanimous pop ular approval of the changc, which has been made in view of the interests of all. from Mai ne to Louisiana, rather than to meet the viewy of the siockboldcrs of a single and par tiruitr railroad enteprise. Hew they com? to Xyttify Everything ? It sc'-m- to us that tho New York preps employing special correspondents, are ever the reading public a-tr.?y. and fighting windmills exi?tingonly iu the brains of their conductors. We have devoted column after column of tlia.Star, almost weekly, to the contradiction of their mistakes and roorbacks concerning matters transpiring here and other matters of which information f>r tho pressiJ first attainable nt this point. This we have done until we, if notour readers, nre heartily ttred of seeing the Star's column-1 so occu pied. It seems, however, if we propose to continue to fulfil this journal's mission as the disseminator of correct information on Ameri can public affairs, our task is never to end. Thus we find in the Washington correspond ence of the New York Time of Saturday last, any number of cock-and-bull storici with reference to tho PreeidonK his cabinci. 6cv. Boeder, and that gentleman's pecuniary transactions in tho lands of Che Kaw lialf-brce 1 und military reservation?, which are duly 3et forth with all the gravity of well ascertained truth ; every material one of which, however, is false, being the creation of the inventive brain of that journal's correspondent, some rampant Seward Abolitionist, who boli^vcs in the morality of writing false news when inter esting truth is not to he had out of which t?> make up a letter. Ono of these .stories goes to show not only the utter recklessness of such writers for the pre?.', but their extreme ignorance. So we quote it. It is as follows : ?:Thc two judges, Lecomptn and Elmore, have replied to the chargos against them, ad mitting their share in the land operations, but pleading ignorance of the law* and regulations forbidding them Now the truth is, Judge Lcc^iupte had neither lot nor part in any of Governor Rccder's purchases or bargains for lands in Kansas: nor is he charged with any such of fence whatever. So, of course, no reply was received from him to any such charges. Really it scorns a hopeless and never-ending task, this effort of ours, to nhoot down the rooibacks of this class of Washington con tributors t<? tho columns of dist int journals. Falsehoods on Falsehoods ? It will be rec ollected that Rayncr's original false statement concerning Mr Barringer's conversation witi the Nuncio at Madrid, made the latter an nounce to B. the appointment of Judge Camp boll to be Postmaster General before it was made. On again looking over his letter t Ellis, of the ltfih July, ult., wo find that, to ;et oat of the sorapc, he in that falsified his original statement saying: 41 About four weeks since, on iuy return Philadelphia, I met Mr. Barringer in Balti more, and, in conversation with him, I men tioned the fact that I had taken occasion to speak publicly of whnt ho bad said to inn about the '' pe's Nuncio, having stated to me before he (Mr. B.) had heard, and before tuc news of tho same had reached Madrid, of the formation of Mr. Pierce's cabinet, that ho (the said Nuncio) could tell him ono man that w >u;d be in the cabinet, to wit: Mr. Camp ocll of Pennsylvania, a member of the Roman Catholic Church.'' Thus, persons who get up such roorbacks are ?ompelled to plunge deeper and deeper into the mire of falsi lie at ion to save the apj>earanc.' of consistency, as the foundation on wh' h their stoiies rest are swept from under them by the power of investigation and truth. SigniAcant.?The New York Cousin end Umjuiier, upon the first announcement of the removal of Governor Reider w.n red-mouth-*d iu its denunciation of the President, nnd elo quently comprehensive in its defence of every act of Govi rnor R., but since the publication of the correspondence in the Union of Sunday last, it has changed its t ,ne. and talks in th's wise : '?Governor Reeder, we *ay it freely, ought not to bate engaged in speculating in public lands at all, or to have manifested any sue a disposition. Allowing the complete truihiu; nea.s of his own representation, that be only .?<rfccd. with others, to purch-tse the half bree'l Kansas lands, in case fcuch purchase should irevive the sanction and approbation ot the President, and that tho other purchases he actually did make, were ol Uuds legally open 11 pre-emption, still, in view of his relati i s to the Indians ai d to the settlers, and t<? the ..eces&ity of his keeping tiiuisch not only wit)* ? ut bias, but without the least semblance oi' bias, amid the disturbed and eonilietiug inter nal interests of the territory, it behoved him to keep clear of all such transactions. 11 is failure to do this, so f ir as ho personally i once rued. cxcludesThim from our particul ir ryinpathies. The New York Evening Post ha la riy gone demented. A short time sincc it very properly denounced Walker and his compan ions as a band of plundering murderers. In i*.sis?ue ol Monday last wo find smothered ie piting over the rumored action of Costa Rica, in the way of countenancing and aiding tho-e bandits. It (the l'ost) is evidently Kinney t.iad?vc;y evidently. This is apparent in lU labor* to bring about the re-establishment of African slavery in Central America; a work in which a year ago nobody would have dreamed of ever seeing it engaged. Paid Up ?We h ear, incidentally, that in f >i luation has reached this city that tho - mount of the Government's recent judgment (ibout 5IV,000) agiiiist Beverly C.
