EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY; FRIDAY Afr'TfcKfWON Sept. 7. fPIEIT or THE MOENINO PEE38 The Union says that the Louisville riots have caused many persons of enterprise and wealth. natives a* well aa foreigners, to Eell out and move from that vicinity, stating facts to .substantiate the assertion. The Intelligencer thus sums up the war new* by the Atlantic that arrived yesterday : i 44 By reference to the subjoined telegraphic eorresDon lcnce. it will be seen that the news fu.m tic Cikr.ea comes down to a period sev eral 4ays liter than tbe time which had been appointed, a.- we were informed by previous advices, for the renewal of tho bombardment of Sebn.-toTH.l. The expectation was very gen eral that the piesent steamer would bring in telligence of tli?v wuo of that attack, but it due- not appear that such an event had taken place at ihe t?ine fixed upon. Tho public mind, therefore, is still left in suspense. It is }*>siible there n:ay have been an error in the statement that any particular day had been a? signed by the Allies for another and more vigorous essault; but whether this be the case, or what has retarded the further movement of the combined force? against that stronghold of their enemy, we aro turnished with no better means ot judging than our readers. '? The battle at the bridge on the Tchernaya was attended with unusual carcago, and the ' Ku-sian loss is reportod as four to one greater thnn that of the Allies. Eut it does not ap pear that any decided advantage was gained t y tho latter, since the Eussiar.s were not driven from their position. "The meagre details rcecived relating to the bombardment of Sweaborg leave tho gen eral account somewhat contradictory. It is tUtcd t&at the Eussian loss wa3 less than two hund-.-ed in killed and wounded, and yet that the fortifieations were destroyed. This is con tradicted by the Russian commander, and ap parently with truth, as it is almost inconceiv able that the destruction of such fortifications thoald have been attended with a loss so in considerable." WA3HINQT01f 7TEWS AND GOSSIP. The Portsmouth and Norfolk Sufferers.? The details of these fcvcr-infectcd localities, instead of aHording hope tbat the plague has nearly expended its power, acquaints us of increased distress and mortality, arousing the feeling, already excitcd. to a more expanded sympathy In view of th??e iiwful, appalling statements, it bccomcs the duty of our citizens to au.u.-e themselves to further efTort for the Telief of their truly afflicted neighbors. Two jcars ago, when tho yellow fever pre vailed to such a fearful extent in New Orleans, a public meeting of our citizens was called, at the City Hall, and measures adopted for the Telief of tin sufferers. A similar movement? f.iy to-morrow evening?has been suggc?ted ? to us; and in this recommendation wc trust there will be a general concurrence. CsURBttn?d.?Th?

It is not alleged that if born abroad he may not legally hold his present position, v. r that he does rot give universal satisfac tion in the discharge of his duties, cxccpt to tho-e classes on whom he ij prone to pounce -with thocluws of the law. Verily, if Know Nothing legislative and administrative wis dom was ever beautifully illustrated, it is in the rise, pr.-gress, and finality, of this bootless and *0 childi>h'y .illy commission, which, from iir.-t to lart, ha.; been of no more public im portance, than wouid be a similar one to ascer tain WHO KILLED COCK RoBIX? A Sugg^srion.?ln view of the fact that it 5? utterly imp. sable to place Old Point Corn f> rt at tho disposal of tho people cf Norfolk iind Portsmouth, it seems to us that the Gov ernment n ay greatly alleviate thtir sufferings Ij placing at their service a thousand tenU, <i! they have them at hend.) to be pitched by United St.itcs ti ops from Old Point on the At lantic sh.^re, b-ck of Norfolk.

Mr. Kenneth Ejyner n? t long finco endeavored to justify hin;?elf fur his connection with the 44 Pope * Nuncio roorback, in a long letter addressed to bis witness, the Hon. 1). M. Barring ?r, wherein he insisted on his original charge of a bargain between tho President and Catholic church in this country in which Judge Camp bell was to be uiado tha Pout master General, I and earnestly appealed to Mr. B. to s?y that what he originally told him went to confirm that idea. Eut Mr. Earringer will do no such thiug; und in a letter from Sharon Springs, N. Y.. August 28, 1SSS. he completely ex plode; Mr. lUynwr, his story and all the ovor entlni?i??t:c gentlemen who hire foolishly en deavored to make Know Nothing capital out of this Nuncio business. ilia refutation is too long for the columns of the Stat; so we njost content ourself with quoting its material state ments as follow?, viz : * * * 44 It is true that the Nuncio was the first person who told me of this appoint ment, ana that this took place before the or ganization of the Cabinet wasgenrrally known at Madrid. But it is not true that the conver sation occurred beforo the 4th of March, or before tho Cabinet was formed, or before in tellirence of this fact had been received at Madrid. Information of tho formation of tho Cabinet had been received at Madrid on that rcry day, but it had not yet reached tho public mind, nor had it then reached me, until informed by the Nuncio. You ask in your letter, how is this possible? The answer is plain, and may solve tho douL ts whieh vou seem to have, and remove theerrcr into which you have, unintentionally, fallen on the subject. There is a telegraph fn m Pa ris to Madrid, and from the French and Span ish frontier, which is some 250 miles, m.-ro or less, from M.vlrid. This telegraph (which is not electric, but of signs la, or was then) iB owned by, and is under the direction of, the Spanish Government, as well at the * correo,' or mail express, from Bayonne to Madrid. In this way tho Government often, nnd in fact generally, obtains information of important events one, two. er even several days, before intoliigoi.ee is received in the usual and regu lar mode of conveyance by the mail. I re member a striking instance of this in tho cir cumstance that the death of Gen Taylor was made known to the Government by telegraph, and that the then Minister uf Foreign Alfoirs, in an unofficial note, communicated tbo mel ancholy event to me the day preceding its public announcement by tho press of Madrid, and several days before it was finally con firmed by the regular arrival of American pa pers and letters at the "legation. So, in the ca*e of tha conversation referred to with tho Nuncio, the Government had doubtless ro oehcd information of the formation of the Cabinet at Washington, either by telegraph or express, in advance of the intelligence made public by the ordinary means, and some po son connccted with the Government or with lhat department of it having control of tho dispatches nnd tho mail, believing that it would bo agreeable to the Nuncio to have this information, especially as a member of tho Cabinet was reported to be a Catholic, men tioned it to him; and it so happened that I siw him scon avuiiward?, when he mentioned the fact to inc. before it was known to the pub lie gouerally, who were still in ignorance and dout>t as to tho matter." * * * 4k The whole amount of it is simply this: That he happened to receive this information as to the formation of the cabinet a short time before I did, aud before it wad generally known at Madrid who constituted its members. " Tho reason why I remembc- tho circum stance at all is, thrt he expressed bis pleasure at the appointment of a Catholie to ctiice, and his admiration of that feature of our repub lican government which excludes no one front ofiioc on account of his religious opinions, tic did not, as you misunderstood me to say, re cording to your letier. - express gratification that his church was so strong anil influential in the United States as to obtain such an honor,' but he more than onco, on subsequent occasions, alluded to the principle of religious toleration as ore of tho fundamental bases of our political institutions There are other misapprehension*, certainly inadvertent, in your letter, to w^ich I uo not here deem it im portant to allude, i hive referred to this con versation wi*h the Nuncio when in social in tercourse with others as well as yourself, sure ly not for tho purpose of proving a political bargain with Archbishop llu;*lres. or with nt:y other Catholic person in tho la>t Presidential election of tho United Slates; for, as you prop erly remark, ; I had been for years out of the country, aud wdS not thoroughly conversant with idc charges and issues and under-cur rents uf tho Presidential election.' I bad nothing to do with it; but as a representative abroa I endeavored to serve the interests of my country without rcformec to party distinctions of any kind what ...ever. 4k But I have uientioned this conversation for the purpose of showing the interest taken in our country by the higher order of the Catholic clergy in Europe ; an l as on illustra tion of what 1 have had several occasions to observe, as I did to your, elf on this subject and in this vtry connexion, that the leading members of that catrrch are as familiar, or more so perhaps, with the character of our in stitutions and people?our resources?our geo graphy?our general history and progress? iLan many of the wisest statesmen of Europe. I repeat, I have never connected it in my own mind, cr otherwise, for tho purpose of provirg the chargo of political corruption to which you refer, but for atutally different object, as jurt stated. Ai.d herein lie* your great mistake, but one into which, with your views on the subject of that charge, and without the knowl edge of the facts connected with the conversa tion whieh I possess, you might naturally fall. I mentioned it for one purpose?you employ it for another, without, as 1 think, any just ground for doing so. You are m staken in supposing that I ever mentioned it to you at any time as confirmatory of the political charge t> which you refer. I could not have done so, for 1 nevsr believed fo. 1 do not now believe so. It would have been absurd in me to be lieve so, unless I had imagined, as you room to think, but which the-acts do not sustain, that the Nuncio had previous knowledge that the appointment w;u to be made, and bef? rc it really was made." * * & Mr. Bcrrirger hr:s cortainly driven the last nail into tho coffin of this roorback, which mad3 so much Kn? w Nothing hair stand on end, at Kaler&ma, on the 4th cf July last. Tho Effect cf Ultraisin.?The Pennsylvania Republican Know Nothing Convention, in ses sion a*. Pittsburg, yesterday, actually nomi naicd Passmore Williamson for Comptroller of j the Stato! lie is a half-crazed member of the Soeicty of Friends, makicg not tho slightest pretentions to qualifications for aught but car rying out the ultraisars of his ? persuasions,' and is as notoriously unfit for the discharge of | the heavy responsibilities of the Pennsylvania Canal CommL;sioncrbhip, as it is possible for an individual to bo. Ilis present imprison ment mu-^bc according to the dictation of Judge Ear.e, unless he will expiate his con tempt of Court, which he says ho will not do. Or, otherwise, he must lie in jail as long as tho man who was imprisoned for 60 ycar3 for a ocntompt, by Lord Mam field, a- he obstinately refuse! to admit that lie uad done wrong in setting the authority of the court at defiance. The He7.?Tho Pcnnsylvaman thus ex plain* the circustanees under which the trial of thoso who took part in robbing Col. Wheel, r of his negroes not long since in Philadelphia, turned out in fair keeping with most efforts ef gouthomers to recover their runaway negroes under the fugitive slave law: "The trial cf the six negroes who assailed Col. Wheeler at Walnut street wharf, and in a riotous and tumultuous manner deprived him of his property, has been concluded, and a verdict of not guilty rendered as to the riot. Ballard and Custis were convicted of tho as sault and battery, and their four a-'sociatos acquitted. Those are the two w ho caught him by the collar, witb a threat. We understand r;at ten of the jurors were for conviction of all the deu.'jrdants, and two were for acquittal. On<? vf tha ."cor-" hnving become very sick, tho majority. presume, yielded to what ap j-eaivd to thorn to be th* necessity of tho ca^c. and agreed upon a compromise verdict, and thus iunoeentiy defeated vnds of ^uit?oo. Under the circumstunces, even stick it VfrJicl, considered in uonncelton with tho concluding r roe-soil spoeeh of Prosecuting Attorney Wm. B. Mann ami the equally pointed charge of Julge Kelly, with the feet lhat ten jurors were iu favor of conviction up to tho last moment of their agreeing to the verdict, shows that jyil lic sentiment in this quarter of the Union, is sound upon the subject of State comity. Few juries, even in the Southern States, could be fouud, to Ktaud out more firmly against the tendency of the argument of tho Prosecuting Officer and the charge of the Judge. lh*u did the jury iu qucstiou." The Acquisition cf Mexico ?The Conner >nui Enquirer of New York squints favorably towards the acquisition of Mexico, on the ground that slavery not existing thorc, it will eventually add largely to tho anti-slavery strength in both Houses of Congress, and tins put down tho South. The editor confesses hid belief that the Mexican population are not fit t) enjoy the privileges of citizenship under this Government: though po great is his desire to accomplish his purpose of putting down the South. that he seems quite willing to risk tho experiment of introducing, as full partners in the Union, eight millions of Mexicans! Tha Latest Propo39d Convention.?The National Committee chosen by tho seceding delegates from twelve non-slave-holding States at the Philadelphia Know Nothing National Conventicn, are about to issue a cal! for a Na tional Convention of theKn>w Nothings who repudiate the never-to-be-forgotten 12th sec tion. and disown the convention that adopted it. If we are not greatly mistaken, there is not at this time a single Know Nothing State Council that has not flown from some one or other of the planks of the platform of tho for mer supremo council of the Order! The Con vention to which we particularly refer abovo i; to meet at Cincinnati on the 2Ut of Novem ber. Rain.?A correspondent of?thc Smithsonian Institution writes that at Wood*3 Hole, Mass., lc;s rain fell during tho last three months than has fallen at that place for many years. In other portions of the State and throughout the whole country, the season has been very wet, particularly the month of July. In New l'ork more rain fell, it is stated, than has been known for Eixty-six years; but it is quite the reverse in the town abovo mentioned. Vegetation thc-ro has suffered exceedingly, corn crops arc injured, and tho meadows and pasture lauds are as dry a3 an ash heap. Vermont.?The party triumphing in tho Ve? inont State election that took plnco on tho day before yesterday was the ultra abolition Know Nothing Republican party?the aboli tion party of tho State, who have engrafted Know Nothingism on their crecd by way of catching gudgeons.

J. Heudren, aud tho whole of Mr. Dates' family. Tho number of deaths in Norfolk during the twenty-four hours ending at noon, on the 1th iusiaat, is virioutly Flat d at from filty to sixty. The dvtuan 1 for coffins nt the depct of the Howard Association is tho best criterion of tao extent of the moitality, and two or three may bo seen there at all hours of the day m^asarin^ and picking out such as will suit the tenants they have rcaJy ti occupy them. Largo j;s tho supply of coffina h;;s been from Baltimore and Richmond, it hau scarcely equalled the demand, which is incossant at all times, frequently exhausting tho supply. The Commandant of the Navy Yard has or dered all tho carpenters in the yard to work, making boxes and coffins for the numerous ua buiicd dead. A Norfolk letter in the Daltimore Patriot ?ay 3: There is no peculiar treatment adopted by tho Southern physicians to arrest tho disease, Somogive turpentine and hydrocyanic acid, others infusion of verbena, others different things. Dr. Minis, cf Baltimore, adopts the expectant course, aud so far with tho most de cided succcss. Out of sumo forty or.^es, he has lost but ouo and that was complicated with another diseaso. A Norfolk letter ia the Baltimore Sun, dated the Gtb, says : Tho accounts from tho sick aro not so favor able to-day. Sister Bernard, of tho Catholic Orphan Asylum, was seised with the prevail ing epidemic yesterday She has been most devoted in her service aud has the sympathies and prayers of every good heart iu the com munity. One of the horriblo incidents that sometimes characterize visitations such as that which has fallen upon this city was revealed this morning. A corpse that had lain uuburied far eight days was discovered surrounded by tho sick and dying. It may scorn strange that such an event could happeu, but it is no un frequent occurrence tosoo whole families down an I not a soul near them to give a glass of water or even extend a word of comfort or sympathy. Persons aro often found dead, not a soul having witnessed their illness or la.t agony. An unpleasant cireumstanco transpired last evening, which has caused a groat deal of ex eitument and comment. A p-raon from New Orleans, who has been noting a prominent part here, and who waa appointed, on aocount of his activity, superintendent of the hospital, was arrested and lodged in prison on tho char^ uf stealing one thousand dollars' worth of jcw.dry from the house of Mr. Lewis, dur ing tho illness of the family. What will be tho result of this matter, cannot., at this mo ment bo divined. A rcsoit to a venerable gentleman nailed Jadge Lynch, is hinted at in various circle?. Fr.OM roRTSXOlTH. Thore I* ono gratifying fact in the accounts fioui this ill-fated town?Mayor Fiakc is not thud! Although very ill when last heard from, (and it was represented to us by a proiui* nent physician who saw hiui that he could not survive.) a favorable turn ha* taken place, and there is now pome hope of his recovery. A private letter gives the number of death* on Sunday at 34, Monday 28, and an average of 20 per day rince that time. A Portsmouth letter in the Richmond Dis patch says: The physicians nre quartered at two differ on?. places. Mr. Wilson who lived in a very handsome cottage on the bank, has giveu it to the physicians, and it is now occupied by Drs. Webster and Walters, of Baltimore; Drs. Howie and McDowell, of Richmond, and Dr Kennedy, of Pennsylvania, and the balanoe are at the Crawford House. Mayor Fiske is improving. The disease appear? to be of such a mnlig. rant form that the physician* inform me it will yield to no treatment whatever, being the con uir.e African fever. The following persons were sick : Richard and Sarah Esk ridge, children of Rev. Vernon fcskridge, chaplain in tho navy, who was very active in his exertions and ministrations among the sick in the Naval Hospital. Mr? Tatem mother of Robert Tatem. She had lost a daughter and son. THE LATEST. Tho news from Norfolk and Portsmouth this morning is awful ! The people of those cities are suffer tug f,om Fa mine as well as frem the Pestilencc. [See our tclcgraphic column for the details of this heart-rending intelli gence.] In Portsmouth, for the twenty-four hours ending at sunset on Wednesday there were 21 deaths. From the Argu3 of yesterdty we clip the following items : Suspension.?This will be our last issue till cooler weather and health returning to <ur limits, shall enablo us to resume tho "tenor of our way. One after another in our office has been stricken by sickness until but one i3 left free from disease, Mr. Benjamin Charles, our last remaining compositor.

A Move for taz Orphans.?The helpless little children who have been leit by tho scourge, without natural protectors, are to be congregated, we are delighted to learn, in Christ Church Lecture Room. This room has been fitted into service, and wo arc sure no one will gainsay the move. It will be under charge of several of cur influential citizens, ar.d supervised by the im mortal Howard Association. Competent ma trons will have the helpless ones in charge and <?od, wo trust, will add his blessin". O Proposed Removal or our Population.?It will be scon ly -overa! communications which we publish to-day. that there is an intense de sire on tho part of benevolent friends abroad to remove u-< b?>.UJy from this dire home of pestilence. Would that il could bo done with convenience! But we fear that there are too many sick among us, and too many diGculties in the v.ay for the sebeuii to be practicable. ARRIVAL 0?
