' We may not inap propriately add. that that gentleman, during his short residence in Washington, has fairly earned the rcspcct and kind regards of all tho circle in which he moved, not more from the talents and experience a? a diplomatist than by his high qualities as a gentleman. The Inteiligtvcer also says of ttie Metropolitan Railroad : *4 The Second Anntfal Report of the Engi neers employed by the Metropolitan Railroad Cvmoanv. which is embrsced in the Report of the President and Directors of that Company, just published, will he found at length in oin ?>oluini.4 of to-day. It is eo elear and forcible in its presentation of facts and inferences that no person who is interested in the welfare of the District of Columbia, or in the works of improvement that are to perfect onr great na tional thoroughfare*, can be heid excusable tor failing to rive to it a careful perusal. '? Tbe advantage of the proposed route as regards distance, when compared with the present ;ocr^ of transit between Washington uud the most eligible point of departure m>m the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, for travel lers between the West. South, and East, is greater than would be the hypotenwe com pared with the bato and perpendicular lice o?a right-angled triangle, while the facilities afforded by the natural characteristics of the cnantry would he stilt ^renter; and the devel opement of the product* of a large portion of the intermediate- eonntry would result in great blessing* alike to those who own and occupy tboee lands and to thecitieeof this District, to whom the treasures of tlieir fertile fields wonld be opened. ?? But a recital of the arguments in favor of this enterprise is so ;>bly and concisely given in the doenmentnow published that it is wholly I unnecessary for us to attempt a repetition of i hem; and, passing over all other?, we ahyll simph allude to what we regard as a i non htrate l position, via: that neither Bal ..ore. nor the Baltimore A Ohio Railroad Cot jany, nor any Mher interest will be injuriou~/v af fe:ted Ly the oompletion of the proposed road; but that, on the contrary, the interests of all of them will be found to be in accord with those of the Metropolitan Company/' The Union congratulates the Hon Wm B. Reed, of Philadelphia, on the earnastness, vigor, and power of his opposition to Know Notbingism, as demonstrated in a recent anti Know Nothing letter from his pen; and regards the recent entire consolidation (at Springfield) of Abolitioniem and Know Nothingism as a thing very proper to be done. .

We hope, and we have a right to 1 ekoect, that they themselves, in spite of the mil amatory appeals of selfish and malignant demagogues, will take this ricw of the mat ter. It is iht nght view." Aa the Union remarked the other daj, this was an invocation to open violence, to prevent the exercise of th?*ir legal and unconstitutional right* on the part of those opposed to Know Nothingism. We have published extracts from the Louisville Cornier, a Whig journal whoso editor was not long since a member of the Order, ' detailing how tho polls were taken possession of by the Know Nothings on the night before the election and held by them until they wero. closed, to the exclusion of the votes of the other side. That the above anti-election advice of Mr Prentice was literally carricd out, will be seen by the following extract from hi* Louisville Journal, after the election : A wr* i&'' know that it was considered very doubtful on Monday morning whether the whole vote of the uity could be polled within the thirteen hour? of the election. The nntivc born American citizens thought and ftlt that if any portion of the people legally entitled to vote should have to stand back ami loje their ?ffrages for want of time, the fbrtign-bon. citisens -"hould stand bnck rather than them *ilves. They thought and felt that this onzht to be pertect.y manifest even to the mind? of the foreigners. Undoubtedly they pressed for ward early and vigorously to the polls, in order to be the first, if possible; and in this n?ht* The^ had a pcrfect right to to. if .they chose, to the polls at 12 o'clock on I Sunday night, and remain there until the fol lowing morning. They had n right to bo *? what time they pleased, and in what numbers they could. They had a right even to tos^ their fnends over the heads of the crowd to the polls, as we are told they did in some few instances, though this was no doubt a viola tion of courtesy." The following is an extract from a letter from 11 An Eye Witness" to the Indianapolis Sentinel, which sheds more light on their pro ceedings ending in the dreadful scenes that oc curred : "On Monday moraine, at 4 o'eloek tie place of voting in the First and Eighth Wards, which are the strong Democratic precincts were takoa potion ,,fby the Know Nothings! A few ot the old lfctaooratic citisens in these kIj WXn P*nPi*Hl 10 *<*? the morning, on Pall others, who were unable to srive the signs, were rudely thrust from the polls. Tb's state of things prevailed to a greater or less extent in all the Wards. tmi n/.,0i ?-.h<kJhe eil7 wafl under the con trol of a lawless Know Nothing mob?neither hfe nor projierty was safe. At this crisis, Hon. William P. Thomasson, formerly a Whig mein ber of Congress from the city, and a gentle man of high character and standing, mounted the roetrum and implored them, ac good citi sens, to desist from such a course, lie had however, n>oken but a few moments, when the' Know Nothing signal for blood was given, and th *?* k?^ked down by a club, in the hands of some assassin who approached him in the rear. About this time Colonel rreston, the anti-Know Nothing candidate for Congress, appeared in the First Ward, which is the large Democratic ward, composed chiefl y of German naturalised citisens. and requested nis friends not to attempt to vote, lie stated i to them that the polls were in the hands of the I Know Nothing bullies, that his friends could not approach the polls in safety, and advised them to retire peaceably to their homes and submit to disfranchisement rather than cn x. Thc re'u,t th?t out L lit^T V" ?. ??tj> only 4 600 were Dolled. Two thousand Democratic voters were by violence deprived of the light of suffrage." As anti-American, criminal, and dastardly as such conduct was, it wu but in literal ful filment of the oaths and obligations which all members of Know Nothing lodges take on themselves, some of whieh, (from their ritual.) are as follows, vi*: lu citiesf the *** of the where the' meeting is to be held, will be written logiblv upon the notice; and upon the tier turn d?y said will denote the *? where vof/r presence le needed. This notiee will never be passed but mil be ? ? or thrown upon the ?4e walk with a ?? in the centre. If information is wanting of the objeetof tho gathering, or of the place, Ac., the inquirer i? *Tk '1 an undoubted brother (wnore s *hen_) Iho brother will give the informa tion if poidessed of it; if not, it will be y.nm and his duty to continue the inquiry, and thus disseminate the call throughout the brother hood. If ithe color of (the paper) be (red,) it will denote actual trouble, which requires that you como prepared to meet it. The "cry of distress"?to be used only in time ot danger, or where the American inter est requires an immediate assemblage of the (CriTi ^r' o,,?oh' Tiw " " That you will, under all circumstances, if in your power so to do, attend to all refrwlar signs or summons that may be thrown or sent La brother of this or any other degree of this older; that you will answer an impira tive notice issued by thc proper authority; obey the command of thc State Council, Prii ident, or his deputy, while assembled by *u<h notice, and respond to the claim of a sign or a cry of the order, unless it be physioally irn jjoesible; and that you will acknowledge the otate Council of a< the legislative head, the ruling authority, and the supreme tribu nal of the order in the State of , actin ' under the jnrisdiction of thc National Council of the United States of North America." Now it is very clear that the terrible and disgraceful occurreacet in Louisville grew out ofthe fact that so large a portion of its oitizena had taken these extra judical and rcvolu tionary oaths so injurious to thc public peace. It will be seen above, that tho programme for carrying an election by violence embraced in this extract from thc ritual, wai literally car ried out. Prentiee gave the sign In his news paper, in his orders to the foreign voters not to ptosume to exercise their legal right?; ia which article is also embraced the order for the Know Noting, to assemble at the polls to prevent them (the foreign born citisens) from exercising thc franchise. Our previous publications on the subject, and the exteaet from the Louis ville correspondence of tho Indianapolis >f( net show bow those orders were carried out K<# content with comparing their frauds w *>?*ed UWrty, tho law, and ?quality under our Omnknl the merest mockery imaginable. the nBasi so coiloctod by the journal and the red pieces of paper, and the ' Oh-oh-ob," (both of which last were p ?igbl and heard a]l the day on the fcreetf,) commenced to chase, beat and maim foreign-born persons found in the city's tho roughfares, ??iling them with abort clubs loaded with lead, stones and knives. To save their lives thas sought by an infuriated mob, the Germans and Irish, in a minority of per haps one-tenth the number of their actual as sailants, resorted to fire-arms. As 4he authorities were evidently leagued with the murdereis and incendiaries, being cognisant beforehand of the violent meins to be taken to carry oat the purposes of the lodges, and refraining from efforts to arrest the perpetrators of the outrages around the polls, the foreign-hern citizens did right in thus ee saying to defend their lives and those of their wires and children wantonly and without prov ocation assailed. They would have been ut terly unworthy of their high privilege of Amer ican citizcaehip, had they failed to defend their livei aad thoee ef their households underauch circumstances. This will be the judgment of ?very man of integrity, and with heart and spirit enough in his bosom to be worthy to live in any other condition than that of a Greek helot or a Roman gladiator, destined by law to have his life made the mere sport of a bru tal mob. By-tho-by, it will be roeolleeled that tho tel egraphic dispatches for a day or two groaned with account* of the terrible murder eomm^ted i by a villainous Irishman, who was first bhot for it, then hung, out down, hang again, aad then dragged by the heels to the jsfl, whew he died in the eoune of the night. < It turn* out that this affair wu as follows, vix: Ah Irishman was proceeding peaceably along the streets when a crowd of Know Nothing ruffians began first to jeer him, then to punch hira with their elubs loaded with If ad. and next to beat linn. He ran for hi* life and was pursued by a crowd led by two men, one namod Roads, and another named Graham. Roads fired at him aivl kiliod him, and a second Irishman, who only did his duty in going to his rescue in the rnolee, fired and killed Graham. It was this .-eoond man who was fdiot first, tbon hung, then cut down, and then shot again, and finally dragged to the jail by the heels to die of his wounds. IIo was the villainous, murderous Irishman of whom the telegraphic agent told suoh sto ries for one or two days. We have no space in which to-day to pursue our comments on this dreadfnl and disgraceful affair. Thoss who were present before Brown's Hotel on the night when Mr. Wiee was assailed there, and at the Third and Fourth Ward polls of this city on the day of the election, will per ceive that the spirit of Know Nothingism here, is identical with that displayed by it on Mon day last in Louisville. There, as here, pro fessional blacklegs, keepers and habitues of lowgroggeries. bullies of houses of ifl-fame. ic.f are the toojs with which it delights to work! notwithstanding the pretensions to superior Christianity of a portion of its leaders. . ^ ? have heard that on one occasion it was gravely proposed and considered in one of the lodges of Washington, to take forcible pos session of the government arsenal here, and that on another occasion in one of the lodges a resolution was introduced to appoint a com mittee to burn down the Catholic churches of tl?e federal metropolis; and further, that a functionary of the corporation of Washington offered himself to lead the propoeod committer in this work of arson, so characteristically Know Nothingish. As a matter of course this statement will be denied by every Know Nothing in Washington, for they are all sworn to make such denials when so to do will serve the purposes of " the order." We live in strange times indeed?in times that develope the fact that we live over mine* in the breasts of a large portion of the commu ? nity, many of whom; though professing a de gree of self-righteousness, under which they olaim more respect for themselves as Christians than the twelve Apostles asked at the hands ot those by whom they were surrounded, counten ance the perpetration of murder and arson, and the entire subversion of society by their cboeen instruments, m a convenient way of carrying elections when they do not happenjU) bo strong enough to out-vote their opponents. There Is, indeed, food for earnest reflection in all this. : James L. Orr.?It seems to be taken for granted that this gentlema n will be the next Democratic nominee for Speaker of the House of Representatives. The fact has been ijruught to the attention of the public at this time through the newspaper comments on the im mense complimentary dinner or festival which was given to him very recently at Anderson Court-House, 8. C , whereat he delivered a speech marked by his usual ability, sagacity, and party fealty. This eelobration is evidence that he has already lived down the prejudice which, for some years, has existed against him in tho minds of the very ultra-Southern politicians of his State, which grew out of hi? evident disposition to be more national and more conciliatory towards his political friends out of the State than has been fashionable in South Carolina for nearly a quarter of a cen tury. Had one more ballot been taken in the caucus in which the Democrats nominated their Speaker of tho last Congress, he would un doubtedly have fined the chair, as four largo delegations, that had votod for others, would have supported him, by arrangement. The fact that the delegation from his State usually quite lato in reaching Washington! wero not on the ground, aad that a strong prejudice existed in the minds of most of the constituencies of Northern Democratic mem bers against any one presumed to be tinctured with the political peculiarities of South Caro lina, together, dofcated his nomination on that occasion; thorn being quite a number of Demo cratic members who, whilo they expressed in private the belief that be was by long odds the safest and beat fitted man in the House for tho position, yet voted against him in order to vote with their "green" colleagues, who were afraid to put a South Carolinian in the position, with whose character and course as a member they had no personal experience The services of Mr. Orr in the la*t Congress, which have de monstrated beyond denial his eminent qualifi cations for the Speakership, however, have had the effect, it seems to us, of se conoen trating public opinion upon him ai being emi nently the man for the eeaasion, that his party in the House can hardly foil to offer him to wheir opponents as their eandidate for the Speakership. Mexico.?The public men *a Washington foreign and domestic, are anticipating that the next arrival from Vera Crus wHl settle the U'oMtrt i A) ? sj i j by the current nvolation then or to Tiaqsiik it. Up this time hi? main depwitow of late has been on the money furnished to sus tain him by tho capitalists who hold liens oa th*?re?miifioasyetdue to Mexico from the United Statae, under the treatj of Guadalupe Hidalgo; payable on the completion of the boundary snrrey.

Thiais the reason why they are now famishing to Santa Ann* more mow. t^T prifale Heine eg, we wrtm whether he will not he enriched by betng drlvdn out of Mexico. He has Made large In vestment* in Haw Orieaas, if aot elsewhere in this country .evidently preferring to trust the stability of our government and property held under it to those of anj country In Europe, however violea'ly his organ (newspaper) abuses the United States. Bonilla, the Mexican For eign Affairs Minister, is the principal editor of Santa Anna s newspaper organ, and in* I bulges in vehement abuse of the United States ] in its every, issue, notwithstanding bis knowl odgo that his master's prirate fortune has for the most part been concentrated (inverted) here; the revenue from which, by-the-bje, is tow mostly swaUowed up in the work of sus-1 taining him (the master) on his tottering j throne. It is further thought in Washington that the story that Madame Santa Anna is about to cov3 to this country is by no means improbable.
