The buelligtner doubts whether the de cisiou of the Supreme Court. in the ease of Good noli re Guthrie, can be taken as affirm itg the right of the President to remove a ter ritorial judge. with which that journal does not conceive theExecutiTc of the United States to be clothed, if we may fairly draw a conclu sion from the tenor of the editor's remarks The came paper explains the decision of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in Pas-more William-on's application for a writ of habeas corpus, a? follows: ? The ground tRken by the .Supreme Court of Pennsylvania is, that th*t Court han no jurisdiction to warrant its interfering 1 judgment of the Federal Courts ; that such Courts have exclusive power in deciding cased of contempt, srd the &ate Court could not go behind the record to ascertain the fact whether the commitment wan legal or not. ? The decision was read by Judge Black and concurred in by Judge Lowrie. although the latter differed in some of the views taken in the case." The Union quotes the record to show that Senators Chase, Seward, Wade and Sumner, and their allies in Congress, assisted, with might and main, in repealing the Missouri restriction in 1853. It will astonish all in Washington familiar with tho unpublished history of Congress, who know well the bitter contempt for and hostility to tho Missouri Compromise which the Abolitionists and Free boilers have heretofore ox pressed, to learn that they row talk differently of it. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Tho Election To day ?To-day Maine elcct* ^Governor. Legislature and other State officer*. Three parties are in the field. The Demo crats, who, are opposed to the Maine Liquor L:iw and for the Nebraska bill (and are there fore opposed to efforts for the restoration of the Missouri restriction,'') thellcpubiioans, who embrace the Abolitionists, Ko??w Nothings, Free Soilcrs, and M tine Liquor Law men. who are for the law, and for the repeal of the fu gitive slave law and the restoration of the Mi-sour restriction, and third?the strr-ight out Whig party, with the estimable Isaac lleed as their candidate for Governor. Re cently there has been a very geueral fusion thiou-houl the State between tho straight out Whigs and Democrat*, who. in some counties, have made a joint ticket, each hivvingor. it a fair share of their friends. This furiou has greatly in.-pirfrd the Democratic leaders there, who have written to Washington that they ex pcct to defeat the re-eltctionof Morr.ll to-day, to elect a majority to the State Senate, (of Democrats and straight out \\ higs) with at-ir chenoe of obtaining a similar majority in the lower branch. We receive these sanguine antic ipations emu ?r*no *.;/?.*. If the Republican" coalition cannot carry Maine, as matters h.'ne been there for the la t two years, they cannot cany a cingie Sta^o in the I nion, Ohio inCiU'ie I As for the PhUadclphia-platform-Know-Noih ing-pariy nothing of the sort exists in Maine. We doubt if there are ten Kuow Nothings in any town of the State attached to that organi sation. The conservative Whigs of th.?t Staie have xteadily refused to follow the example of their brethren in New York and New Jersey in going ever to Know N >thii'gi?m, as v?as don* by the Seward or "conscicuco wing, whose early exodus in that direction, (to leave Know Nothiogism and joiu the Republican party s< me time Muce.) foitunately kep. them (the conservative \V bigs") out of the trap. TltU? Prcgrtjg.?The remit of the late trial of the rtfaning machines of various countries, now being exhibited at the World's Inhibi tion at Paris, mO??t be exceedingly gratifying lo all our countryman, insomuch a." it proves that we continue to be foremost in tho race of improvement in the adoption of mechanical principles to the business of economizing hu man time and labor, and to that of bert ?c curing for man the fruits of his .labor.

Wo prei'si the account of the Con*lituiiouaef, frum the high character of that Lofiii Jth French newspaper, which, not being mixed up with the patent agency business, makes its statement rather to inform its countrymen of the true history and results of the trial than to effect sales of this or thai machine in France, in advance of the report of the scientific commission of the Grand Exhibi tion in Paris u^on the relative merit* of the diff?:reut niaehii.es?English, French, Ameri can, ai.d Algerian?that participated in the contest ? it EAT TR1\L IT KKAPIXQ AND XOWIXC tf%* CHINKS. [Tran^Iaud liom Le Consututionnel] Pahis. Aug 7, ls- i. The sec 'nd day of August having been ap pointed for the final trial of all the reaping and mowing machines in tho Lxpoeition. the trial accordingly came off ou that day. There were ten machine^ in the txposition ; nine ol them were seut out by the Imperial Commis sioner to the place of tiial, about forty miles distant. It may be here remarked that the iuacl ii.es vvei ? sent out aud returned free ot e<?tu>the exhibitors. On the ground of tho trial there were thousands of i>coi;le assem bled to witness the nr.velty of tie day ; largo tents had keen pre* :ou*ly erected, and a lar^o aupply of re frefchments procured for the ocea sion. The day was pleasant and the excite ment of the immense conoourse of people in tense. The police were in attendance upon horseback. The militia were in requisition with guns and bayoueU to keep the crowd of f tiger spectators iroin off the grain. Stakes ??????????????? were driven into the ground and rope* drawn from stake to stake, until the entire field o! about fifteen acre# was surrounded. This was a field of an ordinary growth of oats, and standing up well, and which was divided into lots or pieces of about an acre earh, by swaths being cut through at a given distance, paral lel with each other?each pieco being num bered, and one machine allotted to each piece At the beat of the drum three machincr started off together. 8. Wright s, of Chi cago, 111., managed by his agent. Mr Jewel: Patrick Bell's machine, by Mr. foment, and a machine from Algiers. These machines, being calculated to do their owa raking by machinery. Wright s machine cut its piece in twenty-four minutes; Bell's in sixty-six minutes. and the Algiers machine in seventy iw> minutes. The raising or discharging of the grain from all of the three machines was badly done, the grain being much scattered in it* delivery upon the ground?Wright's being much the best. The cutting, however, wns well done. The automaton raker of Wright's machine wus truly wonderful. The operation of the ma chine was wholly successful. Bell's machine 1-y Fourent. did the cutting and gathering of the grain in a very neat manner: the grain was delivered freely to one side of the machine for the binders. After the jurors had care fully noted the trial thus far, the signal again was given and off started three other machines?J. II. Manny's, of ltockford, Illi nois, managed bjr his agent, Mr. Mabie; Bell s machine, by Croskill. and a French one-horse re.iper. Manny's cut its piece in twenty-two minutes; Boll's, by Croskill, and the one borne French reaper failed to cut their pieces; while Manny's did its work in the most exqui site manner, not leaving a single stalk un* gathered; and it discharged the grain in the most perfect shape, as if placed by hand for the binders. It finished its piece most glo riously ; the jurors could not restrain their ad miration, but cried out, "Good," "well done." The people applauded and hurraed for Man ny's American reaper?"that sthe machine " Again, after tho jury had taken furtlior notes of tho trial, the signal wns given, nnd three other machines started off on tho contest? Hussy's reaper, by Dray; McCormiek's, by McKensie; and Bell's, by Perry. Hussy's machine cut its piece in thirty min utes. MoCormick's in twenty minutes, and Bell's failed to finish its piece. Hussy's ma chine did its work remarkably well, cutting clean and smoothly, and leaving the jjrass in tho track of the machine in good condition for tho binders. This machine was cancedcd to be too heavy and laborious for tho team, and leaving the grain in the track of the machine found to bo an objection, as it necessarily needed to be bound and removed as fast as the machine did its work, in order that the ma chine cou'd pass around a succeeding time; yet this reaper is unquestionably a g<?od one; and may be used to groat advantage as it would likely prove durable, being very strong ly made. McCormiek's machine performed its task well, cutting a closc and even swath, but the raker or attendant, who performed the la bor of discharging the grain, seemed to be very niu.'li strained, being obliged to ride backward upon the machine, atone end of the rrel, having to reach fully across the entire width of the machine with a long bandied rake t?? gatb -r tho grain and lay it eff of the inschine Th?5 horses on this machine were much troubled by a strong lateral pressure against their shoulders, ??ccasioncd by the tongue of the machine. This rcaj>or. on the whole, is much t??o cumbersome atd heavy for two horses. However, it ha* proven itself va-tlv superior to nn~ of the inventions of the old World, and from "the fact of its great feue oos; leretofore, particularly at the London Ex hibition ia l&l. it elicitcd a good deal of ad miration and curius'ty. The contest wa.? now fairiy narrowed down to three machines, Manny's, Wright's, and McC? rinl'kV Baton stalling, Wright sagain broke down, and left the .struggle exclu sively to the two machines. Manny's and Mc Coriuick'f. The two machines were then to be changed in presence of the Jurors, from the c: pa- i!y of reaping to that of mowing. M:.nnj e made the change in one n^mite. M<: Corrr.i- k's in twenty miuutee witii three men. Kuch maehine made one cut through the field of g-ass ar.d back. Manny 's machine doii g the lost of the two. Then the chang-- was mode a .ain leaping and in tho saino time respectively as before. Then both machines were taken into a wheat field. Manny - ma chine cut three -wuths, and with an easo <f a-tli :i and perfection of work, wai h t'l^y ; !a".d it far bej.-nd any further competition; Ji.nu; a Me-C umiek's lleaper cut two swaths, and in a workmanlike niauner.

TeSrC Volunteers ?The Commissi..ner of th'? lien ral Land Oflrse has rendered an im fertant ?? bounty land'' decision as follows, vi*: The act approved tho 13thof May, 1M6, au thi?i"iac?> the President of the United Stater-, among other things, to call far aud accept tho pcrvices of any number of volunteers, not ex ceeding fifty thousand, to *erve for twelve months, or during the Mexican war, unless sooner discharged. The 1th section of said act provides that .??aid volunteers shall, when so called and re ceived. and while remaining in service, be subject to the rules; and articles of war, and shall It. i>i nil retfrcts, (except as to clothing and pay,) placed ou the \ume footing with similar rorj>< of the United States army, and ;n lieu of clothing, they arc to rcccivo addi tional pay. It is further provided by tho 5th section of said act thi*i?aid volunteers shall be accepted by the President of the United states in com panies, battalions, squadrons, and regiments. It is also provided by the 9th section of said act that whenever the militia or volunteers are so csllc-d and received into the service as aforesaid under its provisions, that they shall have the organization of the army of the United States, and shall have the same pay and Allowance, except as provided by the 4th section of said act. Under the above act. the Governor of Texas called li1'" service of the United States a eertain numb:? vf for twelve months, who wore ncrepied by !le President, and who served on the frontier of Texas trom August to December, H4S, which was after the termina tion ? f th,% Mcxiean war. As ttaid troops were called into service by virtue of an act of Congress, which act places t'uem on a footing, in ail rcspects, with United Mates troons; and as it is shown that they were not at any time, during the period which they served, engaged in actual war, they are r.ot embraced within the provisions of tho act of 3d March. 1855. nor any other be>unty land act. ??' The llurda.?Some of our eoUimporarie3 in tue touth are uui?r a delusion as u> the exie tcnce of such a party at this time in New York. There are actually not five thousand persons in the whole State disposed to v?te the Hard ticket, or wc are much mistaken Ouite half the delegates and three-fourths of the outsiders who attended their late convention at Syracuse were mcmbeis of Know Nothing lodges, or avowed sympathisers with Know Nothingisnv among the latter class being Mr. Daniel S. Dickinson, who find6 it for the in terest of Know Nothingism to deny the soft impeachment at times, to the infinite amuse u?ent of his intimates at Bingbamton, who are all well aware that his whole political affec tions are now wrapped up in the succcss of Know Nothinginn. The Hard State commit tee assembled a few days since in New York city, and one-half of the members present were as notoriously members of Know Nothing lodges as " Ned Buntline" or Mr. President Barker themselves?one of the secretaries of the committeo being a Know Nothing nominee for a State office. Their pretence for keeping up a Stato Hard organization is simply to cheat the handful of impracticable Hards left into refusing to vote for tho Soft candidates?not that they them selves have the slightest idea of voting for others than the regularly nominated Kuow Nothing candidates. The Hards in the City of New York, where the organisation was, not many months since, stronger than that of the Softs, with E. B. Hart, Ed. C. West, J. B. Haskins, Daniel E. Sickels, et al, at their head, have gone back into Tammany. Collator Atchison.?"We coincide with the New York Tribune in the belief that there must bo something wrong in the news of the rc-clection of tho Hon. David B. Atchison to the United States Senate published in our tel graphio columns on Saturday. Tho last two ballots are said to have been a* follows : 3d. 4 th. David B. Atchison 24 28 Thomas H. Benton 13 10 Samuel II. Woodson 11 V M. M. Marmadukc 0 3 The Legislature of Missouri is composed of 101 members; so much less than a quorum mu:t have participated in this election, if it came off as is alleged. According to our un. dcrstanding. the Legislature of Missouri were not to have assembled until December. It can hardly fail to turn out, it strikes us. thai there 13 something of a hoax at the bot tom of this news. Dead?Our Alexandria readers will hear with great pain of the death of tho late ven erable Dr. Carson, particulars of which are in our obituary columns to-day. He was a gen* uine Irish gentleman?one of fine attainments, chivalrio ideas, genial disposition and benovo lenoo of hicrt that knew no limit but his means. He lived a life time in Alexandria, where all knew him but to love and confide in him. Navel Reform?We believe that tho Presi dent to-day signed tho order under which the Secretary of the Navy will carry out the deci sions of the Naval Reform Board rccentiy in session in this city. To-morrow, wo presume, the Union will contain a sort of nummary of the ..-ction of tho President under the board's recommendation, without the names of those who are to be dropped or pat on leave-cf-ab fence pay, Ac.

The correspondent of the Baltimore Ameri can gives the following account of the location of a camp and tho pitching of tho tents at Camp Falls, dated the 3th icst., on board the steumer Georgia: We havo just arrived and cast anchor above Cranty Island. Our party of Baltiino leans consisting of a detachment of the night watch of Baltimore and a committee of that spirited Military Corps, the City Guards, un der the immediate command of Col. John B. Bay, are making active preparation to disem bark with their camp equipage, and go to the island for the establishment of their humane barrack. The morning is a beautiful one aud all seem disposed to vie with each other in ef forts of usefulness. S o'clock, a. vi.?The Bichmond steamer Au gusta has just boarded us, with a sub-cammit teo of tho Hamptou committee recently in Washington, and through theirchairman, Rev. Dr McCabo, changed the whole order of things. Tue camp is not to be established at Craney Island uu account of the want of water, wood, and other facilities indispensably necessary to such an establishment. Beside* a much more eligible location has been obtained between Old Point Comfort and Hamnton, upoa the land of Joseph negar, Esq., fvho has gener ously tendered it for this purpose, and to which wc are now preparing to go. Having arrived off the shoro of the cho?en groucd, the men immediately set to work land ing their c a tup eouipago, whilst the surveyor, under the direction of William E. Bartlelt, ljsq.. of the City Council of tfajtimore. pro ceed..* to mark off the ground, whicb wai> di vided so a* to make six avenues, each 50 feet wide by 220 feet long, a 22 feet alley running in the rear of each. All th?^ military tents were pitched by 3 o'clock in the afternoon ;p the presence of the Hampton committeo, who were present, and to whose old good Vir ginia hospitalitv we were indebted for many substantial evidences of regard. The Ameri can flag was raisud, and the esipp named. ? Camp Falls" is situated immediately on the ' Hampton Roads" shore, between Old Point 0oaf6it Hampton; tho ground is the highest in the vicinity, and bcnutiiully adapted to tho purpose. During to-morrow (Sunday) it is expected that under the direction of the Howard As?o eistion ul Norfolk quite a number of rofu^cij will bo sent to the camp by the steamer J E.

Xho flag that floats over it is not a more lit emblem of a nation's glory than its snow-peaked tents .are of the humane purposes for which it has been established. The campground is within sight of Old Point Comfort, and the sudden springing up of a canvass city, in the wild? of v irginia, attract ed the attention of the officers of Fort Monroe, whose curiosity brought them over in their boats. They expressed great admiration as to the manner in which the camp was located, and the tents pitched, as well as at the rapid ity with which the work wai executed. The different avenues through the camp were named after prominent citizens of Balti more. Norfolk, and Port-mouth. There is u Wood is avenue," 4 Ferguson avenue."' " Hinks avenue," 'Fiske Avenue," and oth er? that I do not remember. When the Georgia left ?? Camp Falls," the work of improving tho grounds was still goinir on, and straw and boards were being brought to make the tents more comfortable. FBUU PORTSMOUTH.

At the Academy, which is used a.- an orphan asylum, there arc 100 children. Mr. in. B. Collin.> leaves this afternoon for Portsmouth, whither he goes to assist in nurs ing tho sick. Mr. C. is a native of that town, and has but just returned from a mission of love and labor in that locality: and hearing of the increase of the epidemic and the conse quent demand for nurses, he ha- nobly stepped forward to r.^i.it a sceond time in relieving the distresses of the fevcr-strickcn patients.

The writer of this helped to close his eyes, and saw the last of hiui on earth. A more noulc-heartod, generous, kind benevolent and exemplary young man we ha\e seldom known. John D. Cooj>er was a sterling man, honest, industrious and firmly adherent to principle. Bet we must pass on. The Mayor of Portsmouth, wo arc happy to tell our friends, is dccidedly improving; the fee bleness and prostration under which ho has been laboring for some days are giving placo to comparative strength, and with him, the fatal crisis has passed. Wc saw the Rev. Mr Devlin on Wednesday, lie had passed through the diseaso and was out again doing his duty and then on his way to visit a sick stranger who had sent for him. and who had coiuo amopg us to help us. We trust that oil and wino will bo poured in and that his wounds will be bound un. The fever continues as bad as ever. Indeed, the number of deaths durin? the la*t week has exoeed^d that of any previ ous week. Drs. Cobert, Webster. Walters, and all, are hard at work. More physicians have been written for to supply the place of those sick, and to divide tho labor, which is and has bjen too arduous for the few engaged in the charitable work." In another article, spoakingof the volunteer paysicians, tho s ime paper says : "Seven of these noble men are now at tho hospital sick. Drs Bryant, Asprill, Crowe, Kennedy, Howie, Mar-hall and Smith.
