The Union, under the head of ?' The Re ?eng? of the Persecuted," argues to show that the English laws against Catholicism have done much, ir.ieed, to injure the cause of Protectant! m, aM to strengthen the church of Rome. The editor also praises the efforts of the Flste.s uf Chari.j while their religion is being made in this country an objeot of bit ter persecution, saying, in conclusion : " It is a singular coincidence that the Sis tare of Chsrity have their establishments in those very States which hav:* b?en must ac cursed bv the n odern cru> ade against their re ligion The following list is taken from the latest work pu blished on the subject: List of Establishments under the charge of the Daughters of Charity, servants of the yoor, in the United States.

Washington, District of Columbia.?St. Vin cent's Asylum aud School." The Intelligencer is inclined to be jocose over the idea that there really exists any such t.iirg as a Republican (?". e. Abolition) party > i the Federal city, saying . " Among the dreams of the various tsms which have be?.n, from time to time, put forth for the disturbance of the public tranquility or the gratifl ation of a vitiated public taste, we have seen nothing more ludicrously absurd than this assumption [of the National Era? Ed ^tab] that the protested Abolitionists will crobabiy have a majority in the next House of Representatives, with a fair prospect of the Presidency ?nd the control of the Federal Governme'.t after the 4th of March, 1857.' We have henrd of 'counting chickens before they are hatched ; but this is reckoning them before the are laid. Republican is a sort of India-rubber name, that is easily stretched to cover a multitude of sins; but we have been long enough citiaens of Washington to be justified in doubting whether it can even be auccesstuPy used here to cloak the heresy of political Abolitionism Platforms and consti tutions, rodalitie? and associations, of every form and o*.lor, h.tve become so common as carcelv to excite the curiosity even of the t die. We can smile at the predictions of en thusiasm, without being at ail disturbed by the threatened consequences of their fulfil ment." Capo.v Springs.?At this popular place of raacrt there are now about five hundcred visit era; and the proprietors, in order to accommo date their Southern friends, have determined ?o keep the Mountain House open until the 10th of October, as will be seen by reference to onr advertising columns.

' Odds, Ballets and Bludgeon*!"?W e are indebted to the polishod pen of oar chivalrous friend of the Organ for a knowledge of the existence of the following paragraph in the National Era of this city, a journal we rarely g|ee under the pressure of our business engage ments : "The Evening Star ofthiscitj discourses as follows in reference to the newly-formed Ke publican Association: " 4In the same number of the Tribune we find a constitution and by-law? purporting to be those of the a3sociation of the Republican party in Washington city, which, ns a matter of course, can all be comfortably seated in the sanctum of our neighbor of the National Era, if that apartment is twelve feet square. ' The Republican party in Washington city' is noth ing more nor less than the never-to-be forgot ten Van Buren-Buffalo-platform party of the federal metropolis, weakened by the loss of at least one-tenth of its members, in the with drawal of the two individuals who, having been conspicuous Free Soilers in 1848, are now proprietors of the Organ newspaper, which, to its credit be it written, has, as at present edited, no affinity whatever with Abolition ism, direct or indirect.' " The editor of the Star has no oocasion to speak hypotbetically about the sire of the Era's sanctum, as we can assure him that the office has not been removed since he was a regular contributor to the columns of the pa per. His conncction with the Era perhaps afforded him the opportunity of acquiring that intimate knowledge of the Free Soil Associa tion of 1848, which he displays in the above pa ragraph; but he should remember that good school-fellows '? never tell tales out of school." O. We owe our friend, the editor of the Organ, not "one," but a thousand, for the gallantry he displays in coming so promptly to our de fence from the gravecharge which the Ijocum tent us of the Em makes against us, as above quoted. He (of the Organ) is a glorious fel low, and points his sharp rapier with inim itable skill. Witness the conclusion of his comments upon this article, as follows, viz : "What right has the Abolition paper to cl?im a gallant defender of the South, its in stitutions, and the Union, as an ally, upon the mere circumstance of his having been a con tributor1' to its columns ? We will tolerate no such insinuation. We therefore demand, on behalf of our colleague, a withdrawal of the insinuation, and ample reparation for the *lander. Otherwise, 'odds! bullets, and bludgeons' . But we chokc down our indignation, confident that our colleague will deny the charge, and demand that 1 the con tributions' be published ; and. in default of this obvious measure of justice, that we shall be empowered to wait upon the Haytien who has perpetrated the slander with a mortal message, and bespeak coffins for two." Placing little faith in the integrity of the purpose of whoever may be the writer of the original paragraph in the Era, as, if he knows any thing with reference to our "contribu tions'' to the columns of that paper, he also knows well that wo have never for an in stant sympathised, with our pen or mind, with the Era'3 politics, with its purposes or its ab stract views on the subject of American Slave ry. we hasten to relieve the doubts and quiet the indignation of him of the Organ by giv ing the explanation he demands. Thus, the editor of the Star, for many years before purchasing this paper, was a writer for the press, daily, weekly and monthly, by pro fession, on nearly all subjects in which the public at large took interest?politics, history, literature, the arts and sciences, 6c., Ac. Al ways industrious, he furnished papers for the periodicals, the weekly and daily press, upon any subjects with which he was familiar, where his views on them were judged to bo of suffi cient importance to be satisfactorily paid for. Thus, while he furnished letters, Ac., on polities and reports to the Washington Unin, with which journal he fympathised politically, he also furnished for the National InttUigen err, a series of elaborate papers on the pro gress of the industrial arts in the United ?States, written from New York ; and for the Republic of this city, the well-remembered series of "Ichabod" letters upon fashions in Washington, the squabbles of office-seekers, tho roorbacks of those with beams in their own eyes who were bent on picking the motes out of those of the Administration, and, indeed, on any and every thing amusing and enter taining then occurring in Washington. Short ly after the beginning of the European revo lution! of 1848, we commenced, and for months oontinued in the Union, a series of "contri butions" on that subiectj^repared with labo rious care, and only after consulting all the trust-worthy English and continental sources of information within our reach When the sub ject becamo somewhat hacknied, the Union's proprietor declined longer to publish them, and we were applied to by the proprietor of the Era to furnish a similar series of "contri butions" on the saire subject for his journal, with the handsome compliment, by-the-by, of an offer of just twice what the Union had been paying for them We were rejoioed to find so much true liber ality evinced by a publisher holding the opin ions of Dr. Bailey, of the Era, aj was evident In this offer made, with the full knowledge on his part that upon American slavery and American politics, we were as far apart as it was possible for gentlemen to be; and we were perfectly will* ing to furnish our views on the condition of Eu rope and pusiing occurrences there for that jour nal, so long as his readers would stand them. So, w# commenced and continued the prepara tion of the papers in question, weekly, for many months; in none of which, however, was the question of American slavery or American polities alluded to, otherwise than in " dressing down1' Exeter Hall, and those clergymen who pinned their faith to it, on all passing occa sions. As these were not few, we oventually made the Era's columns too hot to hold our doctrines even on European affairs?and their further publication was respectfully and kind ly declined by Dr. Bailey, who stated to us that be was induced to that course by the com plaints of many of his patrons (the Abolition ists) who sympathised with those parties?the English Exeter Hall pseudo philanthropists, whose hypocrisy and imbecility for real good results we had aimed to expose. So, our con tributions to the Era ceased when it would no longer publish our doctrines. Our literary labors in connection with any sabjeet but American party politics were always for sale, like those of all other literary men, (if we may fairly claim for ourself that appellation, after having lived and supported thoee dependant on us for some sixteen years wholly on what the world was willing to pay for our lucubrations,) and we were always happy to furnish them to those publishers in clined to pay best for them- Thus, while writing Democratic politics for the Union, the Dtmotratxe (monthly) R*v%ew, and a doien other Democratic party publications, we fur nished articles for the Whig (monthly) Revise, ahich the conduetors of that periodical did us the honor to adopt as leaders. These latter, however, were like our " contributions'' to the Era, wholly foreign to the sabjeet of American politics. They were upon the naval hist ory of oar country wme fifty years prior to the com* rnencement of the American revolution. We trust that we have relieved the anxiety of oar friend of the Organ in our behalf, and in that of tho true cause of State Rights in which he claims us, so gracefully, to be his fallow-laborer. A? for the dimensions of the sanctum of the editor of the Era, we have to inform Mr. Lo rrm-teneus that we are still in the dark?never having had occasion to enter it?having no political sympathy, direct or indirect, with any one we might by any possible obance be likely to meet there?and respecting oureelf too much to be disposed to pry into its secrets. Our " connection with the Era" did not, there* fore, afford us " the opportunity to acquire that intimate knowledge of the Free Soil Asso ciation of 1848 which he [we] displays in the above paragraph." But the correctness of that knowledge, it is, which makes "the galled jade wince"?which superinduced the silly ef fort of Mr. Jjocum'tenens to confound us with the Era's politics upon the strength of the liberal purchase, by the proprietor of that journal, of our literary efforts on a sub ject as foreign to that of American slavery, as a .vork on Grecian history or Egyptian antiqui ties would be. In conclusion, we have again to return thanks to our friend of the Organ for affording us this opportunity to shoot down the constructive roorback of Mr. Locum teneiis, as it rose from that sanctum, and to assure him (of the Organ) that when the expected duel grows out of this affair, we shall look to him to stand by us. duly armed with a pair of bottles of Arny <fc Shinn's very best pop?ready to give tho word, as be well knows how, for the dire c mtest. Counting their Chickens before they are Hatched.?The Washington correspondents of t'19 New York Courier and Times (anti slaveryites) are just now busy in trying to fisrure out how the opposition with its huge nominal majority in the chamber, are to be aMe to get the control of the next House of Representatives. Him of the Courier, after claiming a bare majority for the repeal of the Nebraska bill, intimates that on all other questions it will be impossible apparently for any wing of the opposition to poll a majority vote; and ^at it is exceedingly doubtful whether the friends of the Administration will not secure the organization. Such is the sub stance of his views in the premises. Him of tho Times, so famous for jumping to conclu sions on slight and ridiculous data, claims (hit the House will consist of 156 anti-Ne braskaites and 78 opponents of repeal, and promises to control the Senate, if his friends in the House will only hold out to the end. His promise is worth about as much as the pros pect that his hope with reference to what will prove to be the complexion of the House on the Nebraska bill when they come together is likely to be realized. Indeed, both these writers make no allow ance whatever for the absolute necessity rest ing on all the southern representatives?if they ever expect to return home?to defend their constituents against the ultra and naked abo litionism as the result of the success of the ef forts to re-enact the Missouri restriction, avow ed as the purposo of nine-teuths of those who are urging tho re-enactment. Nor do they make the least allowance for the votes of those northern members who, having opposed the en actment of the Nebraska bill, are equally op posed to the idea of repealing it; of whom there are more or less, as will be found in due sea son. Gentlemen, you are indeed counting your ohiokeua before they are hatched! Departed.?We are gratified to hear that oor estimablo fellow citiren, Col. Wm. W. Seaton, long one of the editors and proprietors of the National Intelligencer, has gone to Europe on a tour for relaxation and observa tion, and, we take it for granted, to visit bia daughter, the wife of the American Minister at Stockholm, who has long been absent from this country. Col. Seaton oarriM with him the kindest re gards and best wishes of all his fellow citizens for all know his intelligence, public spirit, and public and private worth, as demonstrated by nearly a half a century of active identification, not only with American public affairs, as one of the conductors of perhaps, we may justly call it, the leading newspaper in the Union, but with the municipal and local affairs of this city which he has served as its chief mag istrate, and of which he has been, almost throughout its whole existence, a leading, public spirited and truely benevolent citizen. More Work.?We are glad to learn that the contractors for furnishing the marble for the addition to the General Post Office building, now being constructed, have commenced its delivery in this city. Yesterday, two car loads were received from the quarries near Balti more, from which the marble is to come which is to be worked into the faces on Seventh and Eighth streets. A cargo of that for the face on F street is expected very shortly to arrive from Massachusetts, the bill of lading for it having reached Washington. The receipt of this material will promptly cause, we appre hend, a demand for the services of more or less of the stone-cutters of Washington, George town, and Alexandria, who are now, unfortu nately, out of work; which is good news, in deed. ? Good Fishing.?Just now there is glorious sport, for the disciples of old Isaak Walton, at Aquia Creek. A few days since a party, oonoisting of a gentleman and two ladies, took eleven dozen fine, luscious white porch, with hook and line, down there, in an hour's fish ing. Only think on't, ye jolly anglers ! To get there, for a day's sport with rod and line, one should go down in the early morning trip of the Potomac river boat, and arrive at about ten a. m. After fishing all day, and enjoying a hearty supper at the hotel noar the steamer's landing place, return in the night boat, reach ing home by day break. The cost of the round trip ticket, we hear, is but $2. Boats, bait, and pilots can be procured at the creek, on demand, and at reasonable rates. The Fair of the Maryland Meehanioe' In stitute.?We understand that the prepara tions being made for the next annual fair of this so-interesting institution are on the am plest scale. The direction are determined that it shall be unsurpassed in all its branches by anything of the kind ever occurring in this country. Hon. Joshua Vansant, the president of the institute, is now in this city, (at the Kirk wood House,) whither he has eome to pro cure from the Government certain articles pro posed to be exhibited in the great Oetober show. ??MM* Clerical Chang*.?The following ehangas have recently taken plaee in the ottee of the Filth Auditor of the Treasury, rii: A. 8.

There is no abatement of the dreadful ?eourge either in Portsmouth or Norfolk, and each additional mail brings news of increased suffering in the two places. The following deaths have occurred in Nor folk since our last report: J?rry Vaugh. Miss Frazier, Miss Camp, W. T. Tullock, Mis.} Etherage, John Parker, Mr. Demot, Mr?. Stewart. George K. Lee, negio Sam, Mis?s Barnes, Edmund A. James, Mrs. Bohn's child, Eliza Griffin and Mary Brady. Among the 250 persons now down, are Miss Lizzie Taylor, Win. C. Whitehead. Henry A. Lepage. Miss Caroline Almond, Thomas J. Cooprew, George R. Drummond, Mr. Brick hruse. Wm. Insell, Miss Margaret Kennedy Mrs. Nimmo, Thos. Burgess, and Wm. Steel. Bowden, W. H. Broughton, and ?> . H. Harwood are convalescent. The Kev. T. G. Keen (a Baptist preacher wiio has so nobly volunteered, from Petersburg) writes from Norfolk, on the 21st, as follow? : l' I learn from the physicians here that

nearly 90 per cent, recover?that is out of every 60 or 70 eases not more than 15 or 20 die. This u certainly small mortality, and Dr. Stone pronounces the fever comparatively mild. There is surely every reason for en couragement. The physicians have evidently n ?w got the master of the disease, so far ai we can apply this to any human instrumentality. I certainly anticipate an abatement of the epidemic soon." A correspondent of the Baltimore American, under date of August 23, writes as follows: ' A Sabbath stillness prevails, broken only by the rattle of the doctor's chaises, and the rambling of the hearse and sick wagon. Scarce ly a store is open on Main street, Market square, or Broad Water street, the business portions of the city. The apothecaries have removed with their pills, bills, plasters, and drugs, to their residences, and mirahile dirtu'. so have the brokers ! There is not a quorum of directors in either of the banks, only two or three of the oity fathers are in the city; preachcrs look around their churches in vain tor their parishioners; newspapers daily accu n ulato on door-steps and on porches for want o: readers; gaunt poverty stalks abroad with d iwncast look and tearful eye; the wail of the widow and of the orphan startles the solitary pa.-'senger. and all is gloom and grief, almost without hope. Never has Norfolk received such a visitation before. The orders of the Howard Association to the px>r for the last two days have called for at least ?1 200 worth of provis ons. S600 worth a day, affording relief to thrice as many people. There will be no falling off to-day either, if I may judge from the numbers who crowd the i\>oms of the Association, waiting their turn to be served. I think it will be fair to estimate, that with one half our white population ab sent, there are at least 600 families in the city dependent on charity lor their support?(3 00U people.) On the Portsmouth stile of the river, the;* wore twenty-three deaths for the 24 hours end ing at 1 p. m. Of the four hundred sick we have the name* of but few. Com. Barron, U S. N., Captain Simms U 8 M. C., Drs Scboolfield, Parker, and Maupin, are convalescent. George W Chambers. John W Collins, James G. Holla diy, Rev Thomas Hume, Rev. Mr. Devlin Drs. Lovett and Spratley, are sick. On Monday night, a woman, sick of the fever, at the Lnited States Hospital, was de livered of a child, the color of saffron. The child lives, but the mother has died. Dr. Trugien writes from Portsmouth to tho Petersburg Express, as follows : _ . , Portsmouth, August 21 It is now nine o'clock, p. m., and I have just got back to my office, after being inces santly engaged since 5 o'clock this morning. 1 have seen and prescribed for over 100 pa tients to-day, and every moment new calls are made upon me, and the most urgent entreaties u*sd to induce me to see a lather, mother, brother, or other friend But I can go no further. I am completely exhausted, and must havo a little rest to enable me to resume the duties of the morrow, if perchance, I am myself spared in health. I am no alarmist, and have no disposition to exaggerate, and certainly no wish to harrow the feelmgs of any one by the recitalof scenes ot distress; but it would Bicken any oue to know what is now transpiring in our town. W hole families are down, without the ability in tnany cases to procure a drop of water to cool their fevered lips. Alas! alas !! lor Dour Portsmouth. Oh ! 6od how long ! ^ I wrote you yesterday a note designed for publication, beseeching medical aid. I know it must require an amount of courage possessed by tew, to venture thus seemingly into the jaws of death to rescue others. But is there no devoted man?no gallaht soul?who will say I will go. Two or three physicians I see have volunteered for Norfolk, where the med ical corps is larger than in this place. Shall poor stricken Portsmouth be loft to her fate Forbid it Heaven?forbid it humanity ? 'Tis a Macedonian cry, "Come over and help us "? I have several patients who will die to-night ?they can t survive until morning. The ter riblevomito has presented itself in their cases and they are doomed. At the hospital there aro near 200 sick, in cluding about 80 persons belonging to the ser vice. Drs. John Morris, Chas. H. Rose, and Chas A. Leas left Baltimore, yesterday, for Norfolk, having volunteered their services for the yel low fever districts making five physicians who have so nobly gone forward to assist their worn-out medical brethren. Cases of the yellow fever have appeared in King and Queen, Gloucester and Matthews counties, ani on the Eastern Shore of Virginia The persons attacked, however, were from Norfolk or Portsmouth. The citizens of Lynchburg, Va., in town meeting assembled, have resolved to assist the sufferers by the yellow fever in Norfolk and Portsmouth; and express their willingness to extend to them, without quarantine rejrula tions, such hospitality as their city affords.
