SPIRIT or THE MORNING PRE8S. The Union again quotes the clear-headed speech of Senator Morris, of Ohio, in 1836, on the admission of Arkansas into the Union, to ?how the inconsistency of the North upon the Missouri restriction question; and urges, with proof, that while the Northern Know Nothings are disfranchising and seeking to ;n&ke politi cal slaves of whites, they are hlso striving to elevate the negroes U) focial and political equality.

Tho Milk in the Cocoa Nut?We have re cced quite a budget of letters from kind and" obsemng friends, who witnessed what wont on at the recent Hard New York State conven tion assembled at Syracuse. They embrace *> mneh of interest to those who take part in politic, any where, as that we feel impelled to Preeent the Star's readers with a summary of e wiringa-in and twistings-out occurring there, which serve to illustrate mest forcibly e fact that if ever there were a set of gentle men whose maneuvers in connection with pub lic affair* required watching, (if the commodity would protect itself against possiblo injurious consequences from the success of their in tngues,) it is the very identical set which car Tied natters on that occasion with to hiirh a hand. ? According to our information, on the night before the convention assembled, those of the ^?legates and <' outsider." who had reached Syracuse were, the great majority of them, nuc*rely disposed to seek in their action of 'as next day only to lay the foundation of an e:.tire reunion of the Democratic party of New ork. But the next morning brought up to -yr^use about twenty delegates and as many ird strikers" who had passed the day and evening before in the houso of Mr. D. 8. Dick son at Binghampton, where a plan was con cocted to pass resolutions so drawn up by that gentleman ac that they would blink the Kn>w nothing and Nebraska bill Usues, adopt an ad ?*??, (also written by himself,) the burden of which was his personal grief against the admin istration on account of his failure to get the of fice on the formation of the cabinet to which he aspired, and to take from the Democrats of the ?everal Congressional district,, the selection o the 5U.6 s delegates to the next National Democratic Convention, electing at that time and on that occasion a delegation of Dickinson men. The I lea of taking the selections of the del egates out of the hands of the Democratic masses w?? conceived because Mr. Dickinson know, well that, if chosen a* heretofore, there *s *v earthly hope that his friends can poll onc-frurth the Democratic primary vote in a ?j g e Congressional district of the State. Thus everything was sacrificed in Mr. D.'s pl*n for ca-ymg the Convention-shaping its action, c to the end of bringing about the bo*us election (eight or ten months in advance of tho assembling of the Cincinnati Convention,) of a delegation of his own partizans; in the foolish fcupo of their recognition by that body in rrei-rcnce to that of those reguiar,y Lnd propeily elected by tho Democratic masses tjcni.-elvo^, as heretofore. Mr. Birdsall was, as usual, Mr. Dickinson's managing man, and with his immediate back ers be>Idly threatened to carry all D.'s pur ir th?< be necessary. Bu.sa-, mjustification of Dickinson's ends professed to believe that there was a scheme on fu>t to turn the influence of the convention ? favor of the nomination of Mr. Buchanan at Cincinnati! This joke is so capital as to in duceustbus to make it-of record." The pluU.rm drawn up and eent on by Dickinson (and afterwards reported and adopted, after amendment,) abandoned all that was distinc betWeCQ the Hards and Softs, as to the support of the Nebraska biU, and even hostili ty to the Administration. Yet it involved a xetus.il to unite with the Softs, because, and only because, united, the delegation to Cincin nat, could noi fail to be against its author -Diokinson. There could not have been a more thor ugL and sweeping abandonment of every issue mode at the North on the Nebraska bill, than was involved in the resolution on the sub j ct as originally drawn up by Dickinson bim ?? ?o the power of Congress over slavery in the temtow, the Miwouri reaction, th. lmuc.pl.

Sickles, Esq., to hi- er#(|jt t written, exposed the folly, selfishness, and im poteaoe of the effort to make the Hards, thus a mere personal party-a tail of Mr. Dickinson and demonstrated that the existing difficulty between them on one side, and the Softs and Ad ministration on the other, was not one of principle in any re8pact what#T#r> bnt Qf ^ appointment on the part of the Hards about ?poi.s tlat there was not the slightest differ ence of principle existing .t the time of the separation, and that nonesuch has since arisen.

Tot wh.o raawn* a. a Hard eudi. for Mat. or count/ oBc. Of th. thir ty-six delegates chosen by them to the Cinein nati convention, fall thirty were actually taken from among themselves. This was just each a bait to superinduce the impudent attempt to boost a bogus delegation firom New York into the Cincinnati convention, as would be sure to carry, at Syracuse at least; as ntoh politicians as the majority *?*?, Might be relied on im plicitly as being sure to bite at it (the bait) with avidity. T*Ve ticket was nominated by a <^?"mitttiv appointed by the Chair, and the convention, to oover up Mr. Dickinson's tracks, absolutely refused to accord a yea-and-nay vote except by the demand of a majority. This was, of course, only devised to enable the chair to de clare every thing carried his own way. The action on the motion of Mr. Sickles for the enlargement of the committee on the platform, affords an apt illustration, indeed, of the trick involved in the adoption of that regulation. he secretary, after counting, announced that the vote on it was?ayes 53, noes 40. But tbc chair, ignoring the oount and announcement, promptly pronounced the mc-tion lost; saying that he thought there wero about 57 negative vote?! There were not more than about 100 delegates then present. Such acts prove un mistakably their reckless desperation and -avage fury, carried to such an extent as thai the upshot of their action is, that they merely made fools of themselves. Of the uut-siders who had "a finger in the pie," George Law win conspicuous; aiming, as he does, to obtain the Know Nothing presidential nomination. Hi* instruments wero there with plenty of hi* money, working to defeat union with the Softs, on the principle that a divided enemy is catiest to conquer. So also were the oanal contract jobbers there in foroo. Canal Commisrioners are to be elected this fall, who are to give out some fifteen mil lions in contracts. All the world know how the State Treasury is plundered in giving out such jobs. The expose was origi nally made by the Softs of the manner in which the thing is dono there; and the jobbers were bent on preventing a union, because that could nardly tail to result in the election of honest Canal Commissioners, over the candidates of the jobbers to be nominated jointly by the Re publican convention and other organizations opposed to the Softs. Judge Bronson was amusingly lugged into the programme, being elected a dolegate to Cincinnati. It strikes us that the judge, not withstanding the proverbial obtuseness of his political perceptions, will hardly thank Dick inson for the impudent attempt to use him, af ter what occurred at Binghampton, at the last election, wherein his vote fell 70,000 short of the rest of his ticket; evidently by pre-arrange ment between Daniel S. Dickinson and th<' Know Nothings; Binghampton the "Hard'' head quarters, taking the lead in that work. On the whole, the action of this convention, which meets the contempt and ridicule of the Hard masses themselves, demonstrates that what remains of the organisation is now car ried in the breeches pockets of ''Scripture Dick,' only to be used by him in driving th best possible bargains for himself with the Knew Nothings, or Scwarditei, or any other faction that will bid highest.

A Correction.?In discussing, a few days sine# " The value cf Probity," as illustrated "?the career of James King of Wm., in Cali fornia, we find that we inadvertantly did in justice to a gentleman personally unknown to us, who, we are since assured by more than one gentleman from California, in all mtpeois worthy of credence, has always borne himself as a man of integrity. We refer to the person whose name we did not then knew, who being one of the bearer, of Mr. Cohen's Challenge to Mr. K., had been indicted by the Grand JnV of which Mr. K. was the fixeman, 18 tncnths before. We are informed bj the Cali orniaus in Washington, to whom we refer above, that the indictment was not for pecula tion, but for*misdemeanor in withholding the hooks and other property of the office from his Isg&lty elected successor, and that his ground "or doing so was because the successor had no* bonded, as the law requires; and, further, hat, being tried under the indictment in ques ;on, ho was triumphantly acquitted. We herefore take great pleasure in making this orrection, which is evidently due to the gen V.eman implicated in the article erroneously. he Epidemic in Norfolk and Portsmouth.

The Howard Association have requested that no more physicians or nurses be sent, as they are liable to be attacked with the epidemic ifter a few days, and, instead of rendering ser \ ioe, have to bo nursed by those who should attend to others. Persons from New Orleans aid the more southern climate aro preferred, ..oth as physicians and nurses, from the fact hat they are experienced and acclimated to t e malaria whicu produces the disease. The following persons have arrived at Nor folk, and tendered their setvices to the suf fering : E. E. Jackson, Mr. and Mrs. Parker, and a .?ulored boy, from Charleston, S. C.; Dr. Camp oell, Capt.

[Correspondence of the Evening Star.] Suffolk, August 30. I left this place, yesterday, for the water tank, about four miles from Portsmouth, thjr.ee iu Mrs. Armstead's, on Western Branch, .vhere a part of my family is staying- I left Mrs. Armistead's, to-day, to get on the cars at i he water-tank, and procure the news from P.>rttmouth of this date. I shall return to P jrtsmouth to-night. One of the volunteer doctors came from Portsmouth yesterday evening, on his way to Baltimore. He said he was just going back to fix up his business, and then return; that in s >me six or eight houses in Newtown he visit ? I fifteen sick, and had on h?s list some sevei - ly patients, and there could not be less than six hundred sick. He said a great deal more, but I did not believe he had run, nor that ho was frightened almost to death. A great many reports have been in circula tion in regard to J. Gustavus Hollidny, Esq. The truth of the matter is, that by his col s ant endeavors to relieve tho sick and desti tute, he over-exerted himself, and went to the Naval Hospital for a day or two to recruit him s.-lf. This is the whole truth of the matter. The deaths of to-day, up to 3 o'clock, have been fourteen?twelve in town and two at the hospital. Below are some of tho names. Ma jor Samuel Forbes, Mrs. William Gwynn', child of William Broughton, Bill, negro boy belonging to John Cocke. A negro man be longing to Miss Bricquet was found, dead this morning iu a kitchen on Broad Rock Mrs. Colonel Charles Cassell, Mrs. John B. Davis, md Virginius Hayncs, her son. were taken with fever this morning; also Ned, a negro b y belonging to J. W. Collins. In Norfolk, Messrs. Pebworth and J. G. H. llatton have died. Dr. Maupin and Col. Winchester Watts came out of the hospital this morning. John Woodley is still very sick r.nd restless, and is occasionally delirious. Capt. Allen does not improve. There is an increase of fever over the past three days. When this scourgc will leave our towns none can form the slightest idea. There is so little communication between Norfolk and Portsmouth that we hear but lit tle from the former place. 1 have just learned that Miss Morriset, ?laughter of Robert Morrisct, of Newtown, is dead. Mrs. Mary Bohannon is also dead. John Emmerson is out, having recovered Ilis brother Arthur and Mrs. Armistead are both woll. W. B. C. The Baltimore Steam Packet Company, owning and running the splendid line to Nor folk and Portsmouth, have manifested a de gree of charity and magnanimity, during the frightful pestilence, that merits a warm place i>r them iu the public heart. The company started tho first subscription, and headed the list with $500, and Mr. Falls, the president, with $50. Their steamers are now running at a dead expense, and carrying supplies to the two cities frit of charge. Here is one excep tion that " corporations have no souls." All honor to the Chesapeake bay Hue steamers. Mr. Falls conoludes a letter to Mayor Fiske, of Portsmouth, as follows: I would further observe, that the subscrip tion by our citisens for the relief of Norfolk, Portsmouth and Gosport now amounts to $11,000. We are able and willing to supply erory man, woman, and child, thaL requires it, in your three citiee; only let us know every d*y by mail what you want, and it will be im mediately sent by the bay steamers, free of charge. Please have no hesitation in freely informing us of all your wants, as I remarked ia a former letter to the president of the How a J Association. A11 that can come to us are w jl-ome. We ^Baltimore] have no quaran tine laws for neighbors. Of those that cannot o >tne we will supply the wants. We have had n > town meetings to open our ports and houses, for the reason they nave never been closed, a id I hope are never Ukely to be. Never for a single day have the bay boats missed con necting with Norfolk ana Portsmouth, both with mails and passengers, since the fever commenced. py The New York Whig oity convention have made the following nominations for city officers: For Comptroller?Robert T.

J. dated yesterday, rajs: The number killed by the Railroad aeeideat near this place on Wednesday la now ascer tain c<l to be only 21 instead of 23, as before itated. Eighteen bodies hare been delivered to their friends at a distance. One died at Ber lentown, and one is stilllyiaghero, and is sup oosed to be thatjof Mr. Humphrey, of Illinois. The other of ths two bodies not recognised yes terday, proves to be that of Hugh J arris, of Newark, Delaware. The wounded persons passed a comfortable night and all are now mending rapidly. The inquest is proceeding and will occupy all the day and perhaps longer, it being de termined that the affair shall be thoroughly 1?L ? HtVU Evening.?During the recess the jury virited the soene of the aocident to the railroad train. All traces of the ruins were removed cxcept the splinters, car seats and other tri fling fragments. The pla<*e where the rear car was backed off the track was 255 yards from the crossing, where the cars came in con tack with the carriage. From the spot where Dr. Hyneman says he heard the rumbling of the cars an unobstructed view of the track can be had for 500 or 600 yards. This fact was proved by running a train up and down the track while the jury obtained a view of the train for sereral hundred yarda further down the road than the spot occupied by the Doctor. The little boy found upon the wreck of the train has been recognized as the son of Mr. Mills, liring near Bordontown. It is? supposed chat he came down on the New York tram on the morning of the accident. The invostiga tion i?? not yet complete. The New York Journal of Commerce, refer ring to the rccent railroad slaughter, says : The tragedy at Norwalk had this allevia tion at lcadt, that the company upon whose negligence the accident was charged, was com pelled to pay to the survivors and friends of the%lcceased some $300,000 in damages But in the New Jersey case, it is now asserted that the monopolists have taken care to prevent "uch a modification of the common law in that State na has been adopted in most of the States, by which tho right of action has been trans ferred to the legal representatives of the de ceased ; so that, as to the victims whose fives have been destroyed by the reccnt disaster, the Camden and Amboy Company will be en tirely exempt from that kind of punishment which would seem particularly appropriate to their case. Among the deaths at Greenbusb, N. Y., >n iuesday, was that of Thomas Hewson, in the ninetieth year of his age. Mr. Hewson

was born in 1766, and resided in Albany for upwards of eighty years. He has voted at every Presidential election from Washington t) General Pierce.
