EVENING STAR WASHIWGfOlT CITY: SATURDAY AFTUMOS A?(li> 11. JOB PR1WIJIO. t ' ? !?????** ??? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? . A We arc moving oar preMce into * in* mv press room, where we will hsve greatSf in creased facilities for the execution of Joa Pawnse. Our other facilities for the neat, expeditious, and economical execution of Job Printing, of almost every deecription, hare likewise been gr#atly extended of late. So we ?re now prepared to giro satisfaction in that line to all. Counsel before the Court of Claims will find the iStir ofice the best place in Wash Ington for the immediate and correct execu tion of their printing jobs. Giro as a call. _ Owing to the moving of mr newspaper press to its prudent location, and the changing of tha engine and the shafting to adapt it to the new ptuse-room, we shall be compelled to depend upon the hire of laborers for a few dajs for the " power'' necessary to print our paper. Subscribers receiving their papen somewhat later than usual in the meanwhile will, therefore, know the cause of the delay. THE WEEKLY STAB, For the week ending to-day, contains a record of all that is going on in Washington, of both a local and governmental character, making it the beet medium for pereona at a distance to obtain the news from the National Capitol. In addition there are short interesting, care fully selected tale' and anecdotes, together with intelli rence from all parts of the United States, and the world at large. Terms. $1.25 per an num, or three cents a single number. SPIRIT OF THE MOBVnre PRESS. The Union contains strong anti-Know Noth ing letters from the Hon. Senator Benjamin, of Louisiana, and the Hon. A. E. Maxwell, of Florida, both of which it compliments pro fusely. The Union also says that the recent elections have fairly driven Know Nothingism oat of the South, forcing it hereafter to be a mere tender to Messrs. Seward, Chase, Wil ?on, Hale, Greeley, atad other ambitious aboli tionists. The hhion furtlier comments with much forcc on tbd deep-seated hostility of all the ism* to the Judiciary, and glories over the result of the elections in North Carolina, Ten nessee and Alabama, saying of the Kentucky election in the same connection: " Kentucky is thus far the only Southern State which has not rejected the advauc?eof Know Aotbiu^sm. Upon her soil the stand ard of proscription had been raised by red handeil riot, and defended by organised vio lence and fraud. But in the States of North Carvlua, Tennessee, and Alabama, where tho baiiot ifiid not brutalized, and where citixens entitled to vote were unobstructed by hired juffiaL?. and una wed by armed bands, the re sult has been far bcyoud the expectations of the Trends of order and toleration. It is an incident of the present exciting canvass, every where conspicuous, that decorum and Deinoc raey have triumphed together; that wherever there hnt been fair voting the victory has been With the Democrats ; ?Ld that, where the Con stitution was most acrimoniously assailed, so weie th-j i auJiJates and the creed of the Dem ocratic p '*fy. Philadelphia proscription was remi.ugurated by almost open fraud ; in Massachusetts it was formally established'co tempo raneotu aith aa as.-*ult upon the laws of Congress ; while in Ohio it was preseuted to the people amid the curses and the threats of the banded foes of the Union." The Union, in another article, rejrices over the p respect of the utter rout of Know Nothing Ism in Maine and elsewhere throughout the North. We may add that our private advices from Maiae, on which we have every reason to rely, lead us to conclude that the imposture of Know Nothiogbm has already completely exploded there. The Union also complains with much bitterne?a against the complicity of the telegraphing agents, if not the operators, in the North and West, with the Know Nothings, in inducing them to withhold anti Know Nothing tews, and to falsify the truth in aid of Know Nothingbm. The IntoUigrneer moralises in excellent tem per, ifcdeed, upon the impossibility of pleasing all subscribers in conducting a newspaper, and presents giowling?" ?op my paper"? letters to snow the foolish new of extremists in both sections with reference to its (the Intel dtgeneer's) tone on the subject of slavery. UxpbonxD.?The Buffalo Commercial Ad vtrttser, the home organ of Mr. Fillmore, and decidedly the mcst respectable and Influen tial paper in the country mat has openly and fully espoused the cause of Know Nothingism, thus spoke in advance of the iffect of the re cant State elections : "If Gantry is defeated in Tennessee, and the Democrats achieve a decided success in North Carolina, toe American i-arty will no longer have aa existence as a national organi sation . Even il they win a signal victory in Kent may on Monday next, it will avaii them nothii.coni.ng upon an overthrow in the other autts just named." FESSONAI. . ....it is stated that ex-Governor Keeder has written to his friends in New York that he will return bomd by the way of that city. ....New York will have a plenty of lions and lionesses, (in addition to any namber of jackals auu jackasses,) next mouth; Ka?hel in the dramatic *tae; John B.

WASHINGTON HEWS AND GOeSIP. i ihe Next House*?We hart bMn trying to figure out a Enow Nothing working majority in the next House of Representatives of the United States. Or, in other words, to discover if it is within the scupe of possibility that tly Know Nothings can carry any measure likely to be in issue before that body. It is rery certain that even with the addition of those who voted against the Nebraska bin, who bar* been re turned again, they cannot muster a majority for the restoration of the Missouri restriction; at more or laas of the old, aa wall as tha new anti Nebraska members, are opposed to the proposed restoration. Certainly, not a man elected as a | Democrat favors any snch policy ; while it is almost m certain that the few Know Nothing members from the North who were lately Sllrer Greys or anti-Seward Whigs, stand on the same platfo:xn in that particular. We should like some one to point out a sin gle point of the policy of the present Adminis tration against which there is any possible chance that the Know Nothings of the House will rote with unanimity. Is it upon the tariff question ? Is it upon any question connected with our foreign relations ??with the public laads??with the financial policy of the Gov ernment??or with slarery ? Now, in truth, the Know Nothing party proper is destined to turn out to be the smallest in the House, except that of the Garrison abo litioiii.<U which will number?thanks to Know Nothing divisions in its favor?twice as many members as adhered to it in the last House. Mr. Senator Sewsrd is destined to be the dic tator for full three-fourths of those elected as Know Nothings from non-slavehoiding States, leaving the Know Nothing party proper in a very lean minority, indeed; insomuch as it will not number, in a month after the session opens, mure rotes than enough to constitute it a miserable faction, standing ready to vote this, that, or the other way, as may seem like ly to pay best, politically. As for the idea that the mass of the Know Nothings will vote for any officers, or bestow any patronage ex cept to strengthen the anti-slavery cause, it is preposterous. Though they will not be able to command a majority, they will steadily ad hero to the policy of standing by the anti. ' slavery cause in all things, so as to have ' strength for a great anti-slavery canvass for the Presidency in 1860?Know Nothingism proper Laving rendered it certain that the Democratic nominee, whoever he may be, will { be triumphantly elected in 1856. As revok- J ing as the doctrines, aims, and character of < Know Nothingism are to the Democratic party, it is indebted to it (Know Notbingisin) for the existing certainty of its success in 18^6, as de- * monstrated in tLo results of all the elections ' taxing place of late, and in the broad and doep gulf which is now open between the new Republican party and the Northern adherents ' of the Philadelphia platform, who number a fourth of the whole opposition strength in the non-slavehoiding States. The Blow in North Carolina.?It is difficult ? for one familiar with the character of the peo- < plo cf North Carolina to realise the existing i state of politics in that commonwealth. The population of that State are more difficult to ' be changed in their opinions and predilections. * than aty other people in the United States s From the foundation of the confederacy up to ? the route of Van Buren, a majority of them t were consistently and unchangeably with the Democrats. Since the latter event, and up to the last Presidential election, the majority of I the State were ns firmly against the Demo- r crats. Pierce triumphed there by acompara- i tively small majority ; the mnjority the other j wayjbecoming smaller, by degrees, since the < original sweepirg change by which in the Van < liurtn oontest the Democrats lost the State, f In the last gubernatorial election, ttragg's, (Democratic) majority was but 2,059, whioh was regarded by the politicians there and hero t as a wonderful Democratic achievement. In the election that took place a few days since the Democatic or anti-Know Nothing majoritv i is at least 8,000, and may foot up 10,000! Now tho meaning of this sudden change is, simply* . that Know NothingLsm, with its false pre- > tences of superior purity and patriotism, its i inculcation of proscription on account of reli gion and its propensity to elevate notorioq* 1 party hacks and proverbial office seekers, dis* 1 jrusts the people; driving more voters from the opposition into the ranks <>f the party that has gallantly opposed its effort to subTert the. constitution and set the laws at defiance, than it secures from that party, through disappoint ment in obtaining office, ignorant brutality of temper, and religious bigotry. There ere fewer Catholics in North Carolina, by far, than any other State in the Union. They were not, as a church, sufficiently kno*u in North Carolina to obtain for themselves (the Catholics) the personal sympathy of the peo ple of that State, whose vote in favor of preserving intact in their case the pledge of ' religious liberty and equality was one of high toned principle only?of devotion to tho su premacy of the constitution of the United States as our fathers made it. The Health of Washington.?If we are not greatly in error this has so far been the healthiest summer season ever experienced in this city, though for tome years past Washing ton has been gradually coming to ho regarded as among the healthiest localities in the Uni ted States. Wo well remember when ague and fever was as unavoidably nn adjunct of a residence here, as anywhere in Illinois. When, indeed, the people <<f all tho surrounding country were as famous for being victims o1 fevers from Malaria, ad ever were those of old en time who lived on the borders of the Pon* tine mtrsbes. The filling up of all the low ground within the corporation limits, and the draining consequent on the great agricultural improvement to which the neighborhood of Washington has been subjected in tho last thirty yvars, have doubtless produced the so beneficial cffect on the publio health in this section of country to which we refer above. Jotn Scott Karriioa ?We learned some days since that the friends of Chase having re cently obtained the control of the Know Noth ing-proper State Convention for Ohio that came together on the day before yestcrlay, would surely bring about the nomination of the Hon John Scott Harrison, for Governor; having pre vioHW-y assured themselves that he would unacircumstances accept. Their aim wa8 ttf fcavt tU* .Convention adjourn before it be c.ime know# J?r. Harrison declined the nomination; <?* ** render it impos sible for the Contention to agxae^u a candi date id fclf'steal, so t>Mi the Know foihings who adhfrt fen tae Philadelphia platform would be fjroe* H eh-wi* i.etween Chase and Mtdtl! only. Wrr|re redve thet ftcy" J1**? k?*n ! fue*?*4*ai iu wearing the nomination oj ^r Harrison, who will not icotpt, and take it for granted that they hare compassed their design of effecting an sdjournment without nomi nating any one who will accept. Yet, we doaht seriously whether they have strength ened the cause of their candidate, Senator Chase, by their tricks in this connection: as a large wing of the Philadelphia-platform men in that State avow the purpoto of voting for MediU in preference to Chase; while such If beyond all question the intention of the great? mass of thoee who not hating joined the Know Nothing order, on account of the anti-Ameri ean feature* of its creed, are still opposed t. abolitioniam under whatever guise it may seek popular faror. We derive these impressions from late con versations with a distinguished and influential Ohio Philadelphia-platform man, and a lead ing and shrewd Democratic party leader re siding in the southern part of the State. Tho Joint Stock Company.?As it is, doubt less, a matter of some interest to our fellow citiaens of Washington to know who are the owners of the Organ, we have been at some pains to obtain a correct list of those gentle men. The stock is divided into thirty shares which are owned at this m&ment, or were owned a few days since, as follows : t lysses Ward, 2 shares; Vespasian Ellis, 4; S. C. Eusey, 2; Wm. M. Burwell, 2; Hon. Bayurd Clark, (Know Nothing member elect to Congress from New York,) 8; Wm. Tucker (of Lane A Tucker,) 1; Selby Parker (ex iecrctary of the Washington anti-Slavery So ciety,) 1 ; Ephraim Wheeler, 1; S. Fowler, 1; M. (1. Emery, 1; J. M. MoCalla, 1; William Blanc hard (publisher of the National Era,) I ; Robert Beale (ex-Sergeant-at-Arms of the U. S. Senate,) 1; Maj. J. H. Hollman, 2; W. f. Busey, 1; T. D. Sandy, 1. Some of the orignal share-holders have sold >ut, among them being Messrs. McKeldcn, Pepper, Donn, and Evans. Another Governor for Kansas.-After we went to press yesterday,-the President appoit^ 'd the lion. Wilson Shannon, of Ohio, Gover nor of Kansas, vice John L Dawson, dt olined^ the declension of the latter gentlemat javiug been received only in the course of the lay. Mr. Shannon has a long record an u pub ic man, every line of which is in strict accord ince with the principles of the Nebraska-Kin sas bill. lie has been twice in Congre*?, one* *<n ernor of Ohio, and ho was Mr. Tyler's Minister to Mexico. We do not know ?f a gentleman in the country whose appointment ? the Governorship of Kansas will be mor.' ike'y to accord entire satisfaction to the friends >f the Nebraska-Kansas bill in all quarters >f the country. Fort Pierre.?The War Department Lave jdvicci of the arrival at their destination of he troops not long since ordered to garrison lort Pierre, the most advanced (westerly) p?*t ?ecupied by United Sutes troops from this ide. It was recently purchased by the G?v rnment from the Indian Trading Company of /hauteau A Co., to be occupied in connection nth the proposed expedition against tho ioux. We understand that it is known here, ?y-the-by, that the troops for thy expedition re rapidly moving towards th<> Upper Mis ouri for concentration at the points where they ire ordered to assemble, and from whence hey are to commence operations. A a Army Officer Dead.-?Information, by elegraph, reached Washington this morning ?f the death of Major E. A. Ogden, Quarter naster U. b. A., which took place a few days luce at Fort Riley, Kansas Territory, of cbol ra. Major 0. was recently assigned to the luty of extending the quarters at Fort Riley, md had lately arrived there with a large orce of mechanics to that end. It is presumed hat his untimely death from cholera will ause a dispersion of the workmen under him. Mr. Buchanan.?We have definite infonna ion with reference to the intentions of Mr. Buchanan, U. S. Minister at the Court of St. fames, as to the exact time of his return to he United States. Ho has written to Wash ington that he will leave England for the nited States in the steamer of tho 6th of Oc ober, and will have J.

Ill addition to (he unspeak nble sorrew entailed upon oue of the most ex cellent communities in Virginia by tho loss of uany valuable and precious lives, a heavy t xpci.se is no doubt incurred for the nursing aud attendance of those who are unable to provide for themselves. We invoke our fel l >w citizens of Richmond aud of other towns to apply for the privilege of sharing with the people of Portsmouth the expense which thi; , filiation has brought upon them. They have extended aid on former occasions to their orsthren in New Orleans, and other place* viritod with the yellow fever, and they will rejoice, we are sure, to be permitted to assist a Virginia town, and one too which has a pop ulation as modest and unobtrusive, but as en terprising and intelligent, as that of any town in Virginia. Some of the noblest hearts that t;ver beat in this old commonwealth, or uny other portion of the habitable globe, are to be found in Portsmouth.
