EVENING STAR. i ? ?? WAgHXieTOI CUT: tciidat awiiiwow i?rwiii. spirit or the HOEimre mw. ? Tho Umvn, speculating upon the condition of public affairs, aad the triumphant position of the Democratic party, argues that ita ene mies bar* lost far mora than they hare gained bj dissolving the old opposition fatty in the haps of succeeding better under new phases. We also find in the Union the following ex tiset from a 1st* no a be/ of the Cmsttsst des Eutfj Unify af New York, in answer to the mendaritLi course of the Nsw York Exprtsj with refeianso to the Louimll* riot, as fol low* : *' The trnth Is, that the excesses yon snum erate (those ?.f election daj a^Loaisrills) were nerer lies id ot no til the day when yon aad yours, at first under the designation of Nattre American*, sfterwards under that of Know . Nothing*, sowed division ao* <ng citisens, and traced an .wbitrary line between them, by makltg religion and birthplace the occasion of proscription of a revolting character, in stririi g to ereate in the bosom of the free and democratic republic of the United States helots like those of Sparta, and pariahs like those of India. ?? If men of foreign birth now ooeupy an iso lated position, it Is only that which you desire to place them in contempt for all the traditions cf the American confederation and of all the rules of justice and reason. Men who, with out hope uf ever returning thither, hare quit ted the land in which they were born, have come here to demand the rights of citiaens, to become uoto you the children of a common country. During the time that you have frank ly accorded these privileges?and we cite the hiatgry of a half a century?democratic and liberal principle* bare prevailed, and the elections hare nerer brought with them aupht but the intrigues inseparable from all political contests, and inherent in the manoeurres of politicians. Bet from the day when your cal culating Intolerance and your egotistical cu pidity bare excited intestine dissensions in this great family?from the day when we hare di ridedicto hostile camps the native born and adopted children of tne republic?you have invoked all sorts of disasters. You have sown the wind; you will reap the tempnst! "It Is. then, uiK>n yon, Know Nothings whether sccretly leagued by oaths or openly avowed, that the brood shed at LvuUville should fall. Wby do you speak to ui of can non in the streets, when you youcsclx s only brought it theTe*?of houses given to the flames, when you alone were the incendia ries7?of terror and anarchy, when yon have produced them ??of American citizens slain in cold blood, when yon yourselves are their murderers ? Leave to til citisens the exercise of those rights which the law confers, and yon will not see the pacific-and legal arena of the election canvass transferred into a field of battle." The Intelligencer presents its readers with a valuable table of the relative cost of ordi nary road and railroad transportation of pro dace, with referecoe to which, it says : " It is thus made evident tbata ton of oorn, if carried 170 miles to market by the ordinary means of transport aaou by wagoa, will not prodace one cent more than it has actually oost the grower, its whole value being absorbed by its conveyance to market; while if trans ported the same distance by railroad, the nett proceed* of its rale woald be more than $22. The transportation uf a ton of whoat, by tho same calculation, woald exhaust ita value at the distance of 330 miles if made in wagon, while by railroad it woald be worth more than $44 beyond the ccst of getting it to market. These are stubborn and striking facts, which no ingenuity of reasoning can overthrow. They are sufficiently plain to be understood by every farmer, no uiaUer w^at bis distance from market m?y be, and they will no doubt hare their inflaeccj in determining his decision when called upon to subscribe to the stosk of a railroad company passing within oonrenient reaeh < f his own granari*?. This, howerer. is but one view of the practical benefits to be de rired from the extension of railroads to the States snd Territories of the Union that hare no narigable streams leading to the great marts of the couatry. In a political point of riew. it mi^ht be readily shown that the ad rentages would be still greater of multiplying such means ot intercommunication; but they are too obrious not to strike the attention of statesmen without a word further from us." The Elections. The key to the recent failure of the tele graphing agents of the associated press to send on furtner details, of election news lies ia the fact that they do not foot up to their taste. It seems that Puryear's district of North Caro lina is still in doubt, and that W*tkins (anti Know Nothing Whig) snd Sarage (Demo crat) are probably eloctod in Tenneasee against Taylor (K. N.) and Cnllom (K. N.,) which will divide tho delogation of that State, and be a gain of one for the Admin istration. Mr. Watkius was a (nominal) Whig member of the lust Congress but one, wherein he voted with the Democrats on nearly all really test questions. In this election, the Know Nothings opposed him with intense bit- ] torn ess. From Kentucky, we learn that tho Demo crats claim four, if not fire, members. We will willingly compromise on four, though the unaccountable delay ia the receipt of conclu sive returns frsm Kentucky, looks much as though they will, probably, nauseate Know Notbiugism when receired. Nothing has yet reached us from Tsxas. FEESONAL. ???? Lieutenant M. F. Maury, whose ser rices to commerce in ascertaining the winds aad currents of the ocean hare been eo rallia ble, makes a proposal in the American Far mer that asysurn of observation be estab lished ou, wirb a view to agricultural matters similar to ihat which he established on the sea with a riew to narigation. .... A compositor in one of the largest print ing offices in New York has juit returned to that city, niter heir* kidnapped by recruiters for the Biitieh arirr in the Crimea, and taken as far as St. Jobn, N. IS. It appears he started from home ou the morning cf the 4th of July, and soon became oveipowered with punch and patriotism, in wbieb state he remained for three days. .... Between 15 to 20 of the convicts in the Auburn State Piison received the ordinance of baptism on Sunday. .... Dr. II. J. M. Cate, of Northampton, Ma*s , has been appointed a surgeon in the Russian army. ....A man employed ss a waiter at the Co ' lnmbia Hciue, at Cape May, being about to return home on Saturday, went in the water to bathe, but going out too far, and being un able to swim, was unfortunately drowued be fore hi * companions could go to bis relief. ? ...The New York Day Book says: " Sam is dead. He sickened in Virginia, got the fits in North Carolina, worked off ibe paroxisms in Kentucky, died in Tennessee, and was bu ried in Alabama .... Mrs. Frost, wid >w of the late Jonathan Frost, of New Brair.tree, Ma?**ehu.?etts, ab sented herself frcm her house.

The Tell Dtbtroyer in PorUmouth ?Wa have been notified that llewi. Chmbb Brother* will take charge cf any donations which the charitable may make far the relief of the M ? feren In Portsmouth, Va. Our reader# all know that fee yellow freer is rnging there* at this time, m never before in this country fro far North; or. At least within the last thirty years. More than half the population of the town hare fled?nearly every maa, woman, and child, thus flying fro? *k* pestilep*e who bad the means of going away. Those left there are, Tnr Ac most part, the poor, the aged and the feeble. While the disease is striking down members of their families nearly all intercourse with tha town, from land or water, has eeased. The newspaper of Portsmouth has eeased to appear, and even no one b to be found who will operate the telegraph there Tabooed ai the town is, the world knows little of the awfnl suffering being endured by the helpless creatures. The 8irters of Charity an 1 Mercy hare flocked to their relief from rarious quarters of the eountry, and are doing all that nursing?eren such heavenly nursing as theirs ?can do for the sick. But Chey eannot put food into the months of the panic-stricken suf ferers, with and without the feTor. No pro visions go to them by water, because it is al most ss mueh as life is worth to hare inter course with them; while the country people prefer that their produce shall rot to risking ooataet with any one tbey know to be from Portsmouth, recently. Out of fifteen thousan 1 souls, but seven or eight thousand remain there, and ihany of these, who have so fur escaped the fever, are almost on the point of starvation. We hear daily that the fever ia on the increase there, and have every reaso.i to believe that the fact is the result of the suf ferings cf so many of the people for want cf the bare necessaries of life. This city ean nnd should at once do its share of the good work of immediate relief. Surely our fellow-citisens of Washington?hundred9, if not thousands, of them?oan and will spare a mite from their abundance to the relief of4 the life-destroying sufferings of that distress*) people, who have in no way been instrumental in bringing their misfortune on themselves They aro in every respect worthy, eminently worthy, of the active and effective sympathy of a prosperous community blessed with so re markable health as now exists in Washington, and enjoying all the comforts of life that the heart can desire; as tee certainly are, as a pop ulation?a community, too, not twelve hour' distant from the scene of intense suffering on the part of thousands we have been describing. We repeat, Messrs. Chubb Brothers will gladly take charge of any sum, small or great which tbooe graced with real souls?jouls to feel for the undeserved misfbrtunes of others? may hand or send to them; and will take due oare that the relief with which they may b:> entrusted shall speedily and safely reach the hands of the parties in Portsmouth appointed by that community to dispense such payment* into the Lord's treasury?such stores laid up in Heaven for the benefit of the giver. The Next Speakership.?Yesterday we took occasion to refer to the prominent position oc cupied by the Hon. Jamee L. Orr, as a candi date for the Speakership of the next House of Representatives of the United States, or rather for the Democratic nomination for that posi tion. But as it is oertain that those electc I by the votes of the Demooratic party cannot elect a Speaker, it is worth our while to study to the end the problem of the condition of the House, as likely to bo developed in the effort to elect a Speaker. Thus, it strikes us that Mr. Lewis D. Campbell, of Ohio, will be the first choioe of the great mass of the northern Know Nothing members?the supporters of the proposition to repeal the Nebraska bill. He had had much experience in the hall, and has proved himself an able partisan on the floor, while he will go quito aa far to accoin pliah their object as any other member who ever, always excepting J. R. Giddings and hit craaed allies. The sccond choioe of the re pealers (the mass of the Know Nothings) ia undoubtedly General Cullom, of Tennessee, if he be elected, which is, to say the least of it, very questionable just now. They will willingly support him if thej can got southern Know Nothing votes fur him. which we doubt; that ia, exoept those of, perhaps, three of hi.s Know Nothing colleagues. The Hon. Mr. Banks, of Massachusetts, will be their third choice. His ultra devotion to free trade will have the effect of preventing more or less of the anti-slavery Know Nothings from sustain ing him. They represent constituencies deeply interested in protection, and keeping an "eye to windward" for "number one" will steer olesr of aiding to place in the Speakership any man on whom they eannot rely to be with them on the tariff question, which is to occupy a large share of the attention of the next Congress. Bot as there aro ten or a dozen Silver Giey or Philadelphia-platform Know Nothing mem bers from the North, all of whom are the bit terest possible enemies of the influence con trolling their anti-slavery Know Nothing brethren?that of Mr. Seward?we do not seo m how It is within the compass of possibility that the stronger wing of the Know Nothing party c&n poll one hundred votes for any one for speaker- Our highest limit for them i* seventy-five. Mr. Haven, of New York is certainly the favorite of the Philadelphia platform Know Nothings, North and South who may possibly muster thirty-five votes ii. the House, all told. These calculations arc based on the fact, of which we are personally cognisant, that at least eight or ten, if not more, members elected by the Know Nothings, or with their aid, on whom they calculate, will be found acting steadily with the Demo cratic party. The result of the recent elec tions, and of those soon to come off, cannot fail ta have due effect on the minds of thorc who mounted Know NothingUm merely as a stalking-horse on which to ride into publu; life. Our opportunities for forming correct inrprcmions in advance in such matters art' equal to those of any one else, and wi have had twelve years constant experience with the fljuio, sitting near them at a re porter, daily, when they have been in ses-it i throughout all that time, and studying tin character of the individual members incon stant familiar intercourse with them. Really, it strikes us that Know Nothingism is to have just such strength In the hall, and havo it just so divided up aa to give the friends of the Administration the never-failing control of the body on all questions wherein they deem it neotssrry to carry a point.

' We m?ke the following extraot from an account of the riot in the Louisville corres pondence of a western paper : " Men lying dead in the street, women who carried out the bedding and household goods weft assaulted, and their agouislng cries for mercy were met by mocking groans of deri sion. I saw a poor Irish woman with an in fant elin'iug to her neek, trying to save her bed, kicked acmes the street, and her bod burned; the Know Nothing fiend crying In derision to her,4 Worship tho Pope, wiliyou?" ? We'll learn you that Americans will rttl? Amtriea.' It is impossible to toll tho nopber of tilled; OM nu wis tan*, and In alive.

At abomt lt?cftsak a more vu madedbr the Qmu wart of the city, and I retired dekened with the aenes of the day, a large tie was ragtag in that direction." The Louisville Democrat, discussing in de tail the ooearreaeea in that eity on Monday, the 6th inst , says: il Mr. Blaekford, of the Serenth Ward, went to the polls a bo at noen.. Ihey naked him how long he had hefn la M country. He w born in Jessamine county, in this State, and his father and grandfather were natire born. He had lired two month* and a half in the Ward. The polla were net crowded, and the call was for voters. When asked how he rotod, he had no tieket and was at a loss for names, bat he i<id he voted the Democratic ticket. The reply wna, that there waa no such tieket. He named Clarke as the eaadidnto. The overseer cried out, Sag Nichts; he has been there leog enough. He finished voting aad started oat, whan he waa eeiaed and badly beaten by the bailies. He still bears the marks en his head and face- He is n peacea ble man, and gare not the least provocation. ? ' no. n. Mr. Roberta went to the Fourth Ward poll. He spoke to one of the eaadidates, and span going to the door he was met by a regulator, who asked him how he was going to rote. He anawered, the Denooratio ticket. Then yon can't vote here; and the word wee folHRred by a blow from the bally, that sent him oat into the street. no. ni. At the First Wnrd poll, in the morning, there wash constant scene of violence^ The polls were orowded. Mr. Be man saw a Ger man who waa in the crowd pulled out and blowa aimed at him. The man implored them not to striks him, as he had done no harm; he only wanted to vote; but be would leave if they weald let him go. Mr. Beman inter ceded, and the voter got away with whole bonea In a few miautea afterward another

German was dragged oat of the crowd nod beaten by bulliea. Beman seeing the man likely to be killed?a bully laying upon him with a club?interceded again, but was this time struck a stanning blow on the head with a club, which disabled him from further ef forts." The same paper aajs with referenoc to the unblushing falsehoods of Prentice's Jouruil. in palliation of their murders and arson to carry the election : " We have no doubt the frionds of the editor of the Journal, who received him with accla mation at the First Ward, and who were ready to turn a church, and who robbed and burned houses, will admire him for his hardihood of irtion. He is indeed a worthy champion. They will open their eyes in wonder to see that they were assailed and their lives putin peril, by the poor Dutch and lush they beat and mangled. They never dreamed that they were half as virtuous until they real the J<*urn*l. The editor says he is going to prove some shocking things; be will prove that the im ported bullies, who for love or money came to this eity with bludgeons, brass knuckles, and Ire-arms, to spread terror amongst Democrats by deeds ot blood, were very peaccable. inof fensive people, and that they were set upon and killed by Irish and Germans and had to fight for their lives, and avenge the wrongs of their brethren. " The editor thinks his friends perhaps went too far. He has even pretended to regret some of the occurrences. He ought, however, to be consoled; he can prove a great deal. Thoee who can rob and murder, or connive at and excuse it, can't lack good witnesses. They can prove anything." Commenting on the rapidity with whioh honest and patriotic men, who are in Know Nothing lodges, are leaving them, the Demo crat says, with great foroe, indeed: Lafayette joined the Jacobin club, during the French Revolution, with pure and patriotic motives. He saw that ic had the power to do what it pleased, and he hoped to control it and direct it for the good of bis country. How .sadly he was mistaken history too plainly tells for any one to mistake. We recommend that period in the world's history to all good oitUens." it 1 MONTGOMERY GUARDS ?You are re quested to attend e special meeting of the y UNION GUARDS, ATTENTION ?You will meet on TUESDAY EVENING, tbe 11th Instant, at Kalahan's room, 8th street, at 8 o'clock.
