WASHiwoToir irtwg awd gossip. c,6lief for the 8offerers in Portsmouth We are glad to learn that cur draft on the bf Ocvolence of Washington, i**ehalf of tho* now suffering in Portf.aoutt, Va., la beta* duiy honored. One gentleman has given tlOC to the canse of mercy and true ctonrity, and ?he employee! in the bureau of theftret Comp troller of the Treasury, ftften foremost in such good works, hare given $?2, and many indi vidual! hare deposited qr sent different sum to the banking house of Chubb Brother! to b? ?o disposed of. Wil> it not b? well foi; th. the different public otEcei in Ifaeh mgton to start subscription papers similar t? that so promptly and handsomely filled un i, the Comptroller's office? P i I Washington Next WinWr ?From aU wf can learn, Washington city is destined next winter to be the resort of a much larger num her of parsons (of both Mxes) of wealth, taste fish ion, and distinction, from all quarters ot the Union and abroad, than ever before. Thi, is as it should be. Here, are congregated during tho session the most distinguished and actirr public men from every Congressional distric. in the United States, including the leading lawyers ef the eountry, with not a few person* famous for their superiority as men of science literature, and business utility?many of whom come hither on business before Congress or the Executive Departments. Of late years, so great during the sessions has been the atten dance of strangers of means, as to induce the hosts of all the leading hotels of the city to entertain their guests very much as they arc entertained at the most celebrated watering places, with the addition of comforts and luxuries of all sorts difficult to be had in an establishment where a great pressure of business is expected only for /rom six weeks to three months, at most, of the year. Soi rees and grand bells, charming music almost nightly, and all the luxuries of high Kft m Europe, are provided by them, free for the entertainment ot all respectable guests of all such house?; the charges being quite as mod erate as those of any first class houses in any American large city. The debates of Congress, the arguments beforo the Supreme Court, nearly always by legal gentlemen of national taine, the lectures at the Smithsonian Institu tion. the library of Congress, the various work* of art the property of the Government collect ed at this point, and the society of the men of celebrity, attainment*, and influence, foreign and domestic, always here at such a season, who arc as approachable as any other class of persons In society anywhere in this country, tugethtr, lorm attractions for a sojourn in Washington, incomparably much superior to those existing anywhere else on this side of the Atlantic. All this accounts for the growing habit on the part of those so to do, who can afford the time for visiting the sealef (government while Congress resitting, and cannot fail very shortly to make a trip to the Federal city during the season as ncccssary to the comfort of those who go from home in the courio of the year, as a trip to thi sea side or to an interior watering plaoe in the summer. The great improvement? in the great lines of travel in all direc tions so tapidiy taking place, inoluding thi reduction of railroad and Ftcamboat fares growing out of increasing competition, arc elements likeiy to increase the number ot such visitors next winter, for whose accommo dation the cmpreiarios of our leading hotel* and boarding houses, and our merchant? and tradesmen brought into immediate con tact by their business with such visitors, are making uuu3ual j reparation*. Telegraphic Election Betnrna?The New York Tribune says, with great force : ??We trust that our readers do not hold us in any degree responsible for the accuracy ot the telegraphic trash we are obliged to print trotn day to day in place of election returns. There is now and then, a grain of wheat hid den in stacks of this chaff, and we have no choice but to let it slide, and caution our read prs (by this time almost needlessly) against putting any trust in it. If it should happen to be in part true, they will learn that circum stance in due course oi' mail.'' We endorse all this, and call the attention of our readers to its so palpable truth. We, and other journalists desirous of spreading be fore the world the earliest news, pay all that was ever asked of us for news by telegraph ; and instead of the truth in the matter of elec tions in ^00 many instances we get but false hoods, concocted wholly for the benefit of Know Nothingism. Now, this abuse of and injury to the presses | paying the contractors who furnish news by tel egraph to the associated press bus got beyond forbearance on our part, and we look to them to ^i-place their unfaithful agents, employing others in their steid who will comprehend the fact that they are hired to hunt up and trans mit facts of interest?not to manufacture para graphs for the benefit of any political party. Unless this be done, and that with little delay, those contractors will find regularly organised opposition in their business, backed by tlio means of another association of the press suffi ciently able to tarry out the project. ?? A Little Learning is a Dangerous Thing.'*?J^^phy, in its immense library of truisms* resulting ffC? th? exPtrie'lcc "f the wise, thoughtful" end '-ca ries, contains nothing more univei. 31 mitted to be true by those who*! opin ions is worth a pinch of snuff, than the axiom at the head of this article; and were we to search the history of the world for the most palpable example of its truth, we really d.? not know wherein ire oould find it better ex tmpiitied thau in tho present moral, intellec tual and political condition of New England. Leaking at result?, we questiou much whether her boasted system of emmon school educa tion ha? not done her in<<re harm than good. Thi? position wc know to bo antagonistic to that almost universally received. Nevertheless we entertain it. She is at the head of the world so far as making money is concerned. The educatiou of too New Englander is cer tainly sufficient to enable him (them, as a elasf) to realixo and to lay by more money thau is iccuiuulatcd by any otbrr people in the world, with equal ad vantages of acquiring pelf, (t also places him far ahead of any other race or people in adapting machinery to the present wants of inan, and it fills him (the New Euglander) with a spirit of enterprise which is working vast results (industrial only) for the business future of mankind. Now, if it ha-* benefited him in any other respect whatever, we certainly know not in what. Duirng our revolutionary war, New England wr.s aecoud to no ?. ther section of the ] <oloitfes in the prod action of men of sajaeity. indojDjtable courage aad endurance for sound useful principle. Ilcr share of the suffer ingstud achievements of that memorable con test won the ft1mira$irn of the Hberal in both hemispheres. Her people, it that time, oonld not hare exhibited tho trait* of heroism which marked the conduct of those of them who did not adhere to the King's causc, without being actuated by sublime morality of principle* ?uch as id no longer theirs. We are heroticai enough to charge their lapse from suoh char* acter as deserves respect, to the errors of their jystem of education, which teaches the pet* testability of man. That is, it inculoatei the idea that it Js right and proper for erery one to set up hisown opinion of the fitaeatof things, si the guide for hia conduct in life. Nearly very hamlet has its distinct religion* creed, While erery county has its demagogue, clerical ?r lay, practioally worshipped by its people, md followed, imitated and obeyed with blind I erotion, submission andfana tieism, hardly su r oassed in any quarter of India. The boasted earning*enlightenment of New England is]us! efficient to make her people self-sufflcient? 10 more. It is hot enough to induoe them toeon emn the result of the experience of ages and to ancy themselves better than their fathers, dinging, as they do, Co all the rices, moral wd intellectual, of their ancestors, and re acting nearly all the principles on whioh their fathers acted, whioh were fit to be retained in the mora' progress of mitnkind. We write above of them as a people with the full know ledge that there are bright and brilliant ex ceptions to the general rule, to be an exception from which, in New England, is to be tabooed in popular estimation. There, where a man may be an atheist or a railroad stock swin iler, without losing oaste in the estimation of 'he people at large, though bo his life ever so pure, and his standing as a Christian ever so irreproachable, if he fails to bow to the su premacy and eternal fitness the ruling idio cy ncracy of the hour he is roted a heathen worthy to be hounded out of society. A Diooovoiy in Science.?Many of our read ers will remember, with .deep respect and af. lection, the subjeot of the following extract from the Civitta Cattolica of July, 1855, who was long in this District, laboring in the oause of science iu the fine observatory and library of Georgetown College. It will, therefore, b-j read in this region with twofold interest: 4i In the supplement to the Journal of Rome of the 25ft of June, Rev. A. Secchi, of the I Society of Jesus, director of tho observatory of the Roman Collegu, announces to the public the first experiment of a new and important application of the meteorological telegraph. It consists in a regular system of correspondence I established between Home and the principal telegraphic stations of the Papal State*, which every day, at a fixed hour, transmits by tele graph to the capital their meteorological ob servations, with the barometer, thermometer, psychromoter, tho maximum and the minimum thermometer, of the state of the air, of the wind, hnd of tho meteors during the last tw?u ty-four hours, which observations, afterward - put into a synoptical table and published, make known, day after d<?y, the simultaneous utate of the atmosphere through the extent of the land embraced by tho stations The ad vantages, which from such a system of me teorological telegraphic corrcspondonce are to be expected, not only to the science yet in its infancy of meteorology, but also to civil usos. to agriculture, to navigation, ?fcc., are greater perhaps than they appear to be at the first view, and we reserve to ourselves to speak of them at another time with greater ease, us also to explain more amply the method and the particulars of the system; being satisfied at present to announce only the fact, which is a new proof how much sciences and civiliza tion are promoted in Rome?so much more that Rome is the first to publish such meteor- ' ological correspondence with a fixed system." j The friend who has kindly translated it for us, in sending it, says : ^ " Wishing the public to be apprised of thi* useful discovery of one whose scientific labor in bis treatise on Reometry, written while in Georgetown College, and published by the Smithsonian Institution, have already intro duced him to the savans among us, I avail myself of your widely-circulated paper and offer the above for insertion. Yours, ?lc.. "C. H B." Tho Fusion.?Our exchanges tell daily of the almost total abandonment of Know Noth ingism proper, at the North, for the organiza tion of the new Republican (abolition) party, which though based on the idea that all the negroes in this country are competent for self government and should of right enjoy civil and political equality with the whites here, nevertheless has adopted the theory that not a single vhite foreigner or worshipper of the Ever-living God according to the teneta of the Catholic faith, should enjoy privileges to which they seek to elevate the negroes. This last antic has been cut by them in order to draw to them all anti-slavery men identified up to this time with Know Nothingism. They have succeeded to a charm in breaking up the lodges ot the Know Nothings proper, yet their means to compass that end, as above described, so stultify them, as that they, in turn, will very shortly be abandoned by all who are aboli tionists on principle?abolitionists for nught else than to get office. Todtleben.?We are most happy to have it in our power to state, after due inquiry, that tho Russian Legation in this city place no confi dence whatever in the story of the death of Toltlcben, the Emperor's great engineer-in chief, at Sebastopol; which originated in tin camp of the'1 Allies, and thence came duly to us, via London. The legation have no such information in the latest dates from St. Petersburg; nor wae he at that time re garded in that city as being in danger of los ing his life from bis wound. This uews will bo very gratefully received every where on i this side of the Atlantic, as ToJtlcbeu has cer ?-W earned more popular admiration and * *"? any gther general engaged in character ttta*. the war on either sido. ? . *^d Tho War.?The steamer is duo to-day, a., we write of courso without knowledge of the exact character of the news she may bring. We have to say that no military man in Wash ington expects to hear by her of any substan tial proprees in the siege of Sebastopol, it be ing the general impression that England, France, and Turkey can do nothing that will enable their armies to hold the city twenty four hours; its occupation, by storm, for a few brief moments being the most t'aat they can ed'cot under any combination of circumstance* within the range of possibility as affairs stand at this time. 1 Tho Proaident, accompanied by Mrs. Pierce and Mr. Sidney Webster, his private Secre tary, and J. 1>. Hoover, Esq., United States Marshal of the District of Columbia, design leaving Washington to-morrow morning for a short sojourn at tha Virginia White and Redl Sulphur Springs.

Large Seizure of Liquor.?Our police have recently had their suspicions awakened that large quantities of liquors were being brought here in vessels from Portsmouth. N?. II., aud consequently kept a look out for them. ? A day or two since, a small schooner, called the Ocean Ranger, arrived here and anchored t off the lower end of Peak's Island. Her an- 1 ptarance was rather suspicious, and from the movements of the schooner, and the conduct of those in charge, it was supposed that she hud contraband stuff on board. Yesterday Deputy Marshal Ring, with a warrant, took tue steam tug Tiger and visited the schooner ;l1 huving exhibited his warrant, the captain i swore that the liquors should not be taken out i l?y any live man. but the bracelets being put ' on his wrists, he became more calm, and the tug towed the schooner up to one of our ! wharves, where she was thoroughly searched, I and 21 kegs c?ntaiuiug about 400 gallons of ' liquor seized and sent lo the lock-up.

We don't know of any better way than to send it here, and have it seized by our police. Poitlmul Ado.j M.atf 10.

The Norfolk Herald of Monday morning ha? , the following acoouut of the progress of the disease : There was a decline in the progress of the prevailing disease during the. 34 hours up u> Saturday, 8 p. m. The deaths in the city from yellow fever exclusively were only three The new esses are greatly reduced in number, and are confined exclusively, we understand, to positively manifest eased of yellow fever Other cases of fever exist, but they were not ihen within the category and were not report ed. We understand it is the intention of the Board of Health, after to-day, to report noi.i but deaths, which is the only certain iue<in by which the progress of the disease can In coirectly ascertained. It is very easy to ob tain a correct report of deaths, but almost im possible to state accurately the number of new caws, as every case of fever does not prove it ^elf to be yellow fever. A oorreot list of deaths by yellow fever from its commencement on the 16th July, has boeu kept by a physician, and up to Saturday the number was twenty, out of about sixty ca*>?*. showing the mortality to have been only <*.* in three. And it is for this that nearly oik half of our population have deserted their homes, shut up their stores and caused a tot 11 suspension of business for the next two-end-a inlf months! By a letter from Portsmouth, dated the 13tb instant, received this morning, we learn that the rumored sickness and death by yellow fe ver of Mr. William B. Collins is unfounded: that he had been confined to the house a few days by sickness, (but not with the yellow fever,) and that he is now oouvalesccnt ai d attending to business. The substance of tht above ii contained in a letter from a member ol the family to a son of Mr. Collins now in thif city, and can be relied on. The death of Mi * Moseley Latimor is mentioned in the canu letter. Letters from Portsmouth and Norfolk speak solemnly and touchingly of the ravages of tlfl epidemic, and the suffering in consequence, yet they complain bitterly of the exaggerated accounts which are frequently published. Crimes have Small Beqi*kixgs ?DeBarr. whose life has paid the forfeit to an excited mob in JWisconsin, for an outrageous murder, is supposed once to have resided in this city. He was then a small boy and lived, together with his mother, in a family where she acted in the capajity of a servant. He then stole a half dollar from one of the small children ot the family. A disposition on the part of the gentleman of the family to administer corpj ral punishment upon the young thief was thwarted by the interference of the mother. They were cent adrift, and this is the firet in formation concerning either of them.
