EVENING STAB W A 8HIWGT0N CIT T : WKD!VESD&y April 3, 1M6. JIT" Adv?rtiH?ni?nu should be handed in by 14 o'clock, m , nthewrUe tbey may not appear anttl the next day. SPIRIT OF THE MOBNING PRESS The Intelligencer saya of ilie proapect of peaee in Europe : " All the late accouDts from London and Paris apeak confidently of an early pease. The Paris correspondent of the New York Post, in a note to a private letter dated the 11th ultimo, says : " ' You may state to your roaders that com ' mittees hare been appointed by the Peace ' Congress to whom are to be referred all ? questions of mere detail, and that the prin cipal treaty will be sijmed next Saturday or ' Tuesday at furthest ' "A postscript to another private letter re ceived at New York, dated two days later, and coming from an American gentleman resi dent at Paris, says: " 41 have ju"t received from what is thought good authority that peace will be proclaimed within three days. You hare it as I got it ' Our own London correspondence also in spire* the hope that the deliberation! of the cioiu*y "?n co wil1 terminate auspi Cimmet t ng upon yesterday's portion of the present '? heated term" in the ben ate of the United State? over the action of the late Na val Retiring Board, the same paper says, with Pickwickian gravity: '? But the debate has, for the most part, taken a wide range, and from the peculiar nature ot the inquiry, and of the material upon which investigation must necessarily concentrate, if discursive discussion be in dulged, considerable personal feeling mu?t mingle with the deductions of reason. So it is tc be feared, in the progress of a s< jiewhnt vague debate on topics so delicate, that more acrimony may be engendered?to be sure, of a temporary character?than is usually pro duced even by discussions upon the strongest party topics. Wo are certainly glad that no such regretable incident has yet occurred." Now. the truth is, there wa3 a 14 high time" there, yesterday. between Messrs. Bell and Clayton. The latter, in his defence of Captain Dupont, toek occasion to compare the allega tion? made hy Lieut. Maury in his suit against the company owning the stage by the upset ting of which he was made a cripple for life, and these of his application for a pension, with the allegations embraced in his memorial to the Senate against the action of the Naval Retiring Board in his ease. Commenting, with freedom, upon what be conceived to be their very striking discrepancies, he said things highly . ffensive to Mr. Bell, the senatorial friend of Lieutenant M. The latter retorted with warmth, so vehement, as to excite b,th himself and Mr. Clayton, until many of the large audiencc present would have bot even on broken heads and bloody noses ere their session of the day came to a close. The Unto it quotes the renniy Iranian's 1 >t<j ten-column article, wherein it is held that Mr Buchanan is in cff<?ct uncommitted upon the propriety of repealing tho Missouri com promise and enacting the Nebraska bill, acd argues that those who advocate his nomina tion on such grounds are doing him irrepara ble injury The editor soouts the idea that they can Is ?j caking by his authority in as suming any such position for him. The Union end r?nn*jflvaniaH affair is what is termed "a *ory pretty quarrel, as it stands," and its progress is viewed by the Democratic, and indeed all o her public men in Washington, with intense interett, as being likely greatly to effect the solution of the problem-Who is is to be the nominee of the Cincinnati Con vention * I Book Notices.

C , in pursuit I of her husband, who had eloped with another I woman. Tho parties stopped at a tavern I down uwn, ai.d the lady learning the fact I proceeded thither, and told the landlord the atory of her tribulation and her husband's I rascality. The guilty pair. learning by seme means of her presence in the, tavern contrived I to leasre the house without her knowledge, I and started for Alleghety with a view of get- I ting off in tho next train. Accompanied by I the landlord she pursued them to the station, I but here they gave fcer the slip again, and I though every exertion wai made by officer I Scott and others to effect their arrest, the gay I Lotharw and his paramour escaped. It is I supposed tbat they went on board some of the I steamers lying at the wharf and are now on their way down the river. Further than that I the man actcd as an interpreter in Washington City, and oocupied a respectable position in I society there, nothing could be heard cf them. I A? Speaker Banks says we should advise the I wife to "let em siide!" Ketch* oir the Aectic.?We mentioned I yesterday, that the Propeller Arctic, Comman- I > <1#T Hart,tein, had arrived at New York city. I She had been out forty seven days in acarch vease.s in distress, and encountered a sue- I cession of rery heavy gales The Arctic has not seen nor heard of any vessels requiring assistance. On the 29th March, lat 39 30 lo?. 71.40, spoke the schooner Fred. Dyer of I Belfast, bound to Boston and leaking rome but declined assistant. It was the intention of Commander Ilartatein to have gone as far east as the i?e had been met with ; but plac ing confidcnco in the correctness of the report received at Halifax, that the Pacific bad put back into the river Shannon, he concluicd, after examiaiag Sable laland and its reefr, for recent wrecks, that it would be better (as he ha* done) to work to the westward, along the edga of the Gulf, keeping as much as possible in the track where vessels that might be disabled would most probably be found; but finding no disabled vessels, he returned to pert G" Brewn !;ft his boarding house last auk beeau... he saw his landlady rinsing her Wil ding baain^ o ho pud* I ? *? ?. WASHINGTON NEWS AND 0038IT; A Powerfal Appeal ?After returning from the late Virginia State De moor a tie Conven tion, we took occasion to mention our impres sion that the rote of the Old Dominion will be given at Cincinnati for the renomination of President Pieroe. All the information we hare since received from all qcarters of the State confirms this opinion. We may add truthfully, that the circumstances tending to j secure the vote of Virginia for the renomina te of President Pierce, are acting no less powerfully throughout the whole South. We find them ao concisely, eloquently and forci bly set forth in an anonymous phamphlet. bearing the following title? 'The next Presi dency. An appeal to the Democracy of Vir ginia. 1856,''?as that we extract them there from by way of presenting them to the Sta?'< readers far more satisfactorily than through elaboration by our own pen : " If President Pieroe is not available, then there is no available candidate in the ranks of the Democracy. Is there a disposition to pro scribe him because of the prominent part he has piayed in the fight with the Abolitionists? Are the Democracy to dodge issues? Are we to make concession to the prejudices of ourfoe? Is it proposed to win victory by fraud ? If not, then let Ibj Democracy adopt the most manly, the most straightforward, and the met chivalric policy. Let us make the distinct is sue before the country. Let us proclaim our principles without equivocation end with a ?bout of defiance. And for leader let us se lect no timid time-server, no skulking coward; but let us take tho veteran of the war, all covered as he is with glorious wounds, and bid him conduct us to defeat or to an honorable triumph. With Franklin Pierce for candi date, the Democracy can conduct the canvass on no other but the highest ground*. His principles are not susceptible of equivocation, lie stands before the country, not like a cloudy unroality which aaybody may liken to what soever figures may please his fancy, but in distinct proportion and bold relief. He is tl e same East, W North and South. His posi tion in reg ird to every measure of public policy is incontrovertibly certain, and his nomination wUl nerfect the consistency and individuality of the Democratic party. ? r ?k i* U *Vd 0f Pranklin Pierce fell the wrath which the repeal of the Missouri re striction provoked throughout the North. He was reviled and persecuted as no public m*n waa ever before reviled and persecuted in this country He was assailed not only by the violence o4 his enemies, but by that more cut ting pain?the desertion of friends. Yet did he not shrink. He never swerved from his support of the South, nor abated a jot or tittle of heart >n our servioe. And is this the man whom the South will betray for some easy p rson who has been reposing in inglorious the/w 7 iI,e f ranklin Kerce was enduring the sweat and agony of the strife !" The Boundary Survey ?Probably no sim ilar work was ever accomplished under the authority ot any government more complete, satisfactory, and useful, than that of the Uni ted States survey to fix the boundary with Mexico under the treaty, as the directions of the Interior Department have been carried out by Col. Emory Wo spent an hcur, a day or two since, in the office of tho work in this eity, where we were more gratified than wo can express. The Commissioner took due care to cause information concerning every element of the country acquired by the Guadulupe treaty, and the subsequent one (tho Mosilla \ alley treaty,) to be carefully noted and pre served. In addition to its geographical and topographical point* of interest, its natural history, geology, entomology, Ac , Ac , havo been carefully studied. The maps and draw ings which are by long odds the most beauti ful ever executed for this Government in connection with a similar enterprise, embrace a number of novel features, and in themselves present daguerreotypes of the region exam amincd so thoroughly, which convey to the mind, through the eye, on the instant, an amount of practical knowledge concerning it (the region of country) hardly attainable from books alone under any circumstances We are glad to perceive that many of the most beautiful engravings of topography, animal life, views, Ac., so far executed fi>r tho work, are the handicraft of artists resident in the Diatiict of Columbia, who can at this moment vie even with Paris in the ta3te, faultless ac curacy, and style of finish of their professional labors. W e advise all literateur* and scientific men who visit Washington to take the Boundary survey Offico in the circle of their calls at puolic places in this city, where they will en joy an hour as hardly to be enjoyed elsewhere in this ccuntry. The Revenue Cutter Washington ?We make the following very interesting extract from the account which the commander of this vessel gives of the Washington'! last cruise for the relief of suffering vessels and erews on the coast, as follows : "On the 19th, having received on hoard everything necessary for tho cruiso. I put to sea. One hundred and thirty eight vessels have been boarded and spoken Fourteen vessels have been assisted out of the ice. Wo assisted the United States marshal in arrest ing a prisoner from the ship Albert Gallatin, from Liverpool.

S N.. against tho alle gations against him embraced in the late speech of Mr Houston. In the course of his remarks, Mr C. reviewed the memorial of Lieutenant Maury to the Senate with great severity. Mr Bell replied at length, and with great warmth, to the speoch of Mr. Clayton, and particularly in defence of .Lieutenant Maury. Ero be had concluded, they adjourned. Ia the House, they agreei to the pending amendmentto the Oregon and Washington Ter ritories protection bill, appropriating $120 000 for the purchase of gunpowder on the Pacific coa?t; and then the bill was passed?yeas 110, nayi 35 Mr Campbell, of Ohio, moved to close tho general debate on the President's Annual Message in two hours; (giving notice at the simo timo that next week ho would call up the Kansas affairs message, on which tho Kan sas question might be debated at length) mo tion not agreed to. The House then went into Committee (Mr. Mace in the chair,) and resuming tho consid eration of tho Annual Message, Mr. Warner addressed the committee at length on the slavery question, insisting upen the right of tho South to enjoy tho territory of the United States in common with the other States of the Union, and tho right of the citi zens of tho South to romovo into it with their slave property The institution of slavery was protected by law, and was recognis-d bv the universal law of nations, and none had a right to interfere with it. He said that for maintaining tho great principles embraced in ttie Kansas-Nebraska bill, and for vindieatin* the integrity of the Constitution, the Pteai dent of tho United States had been denounced by his opponents as a "doughface;" but it was much better for him to be called a dough face than to have been denounced as guilty of perjury in failing to discharge his duty under that Constitution which he had sworn to sup port and maintain Mr. Allison followed in opposition to the ex tension of slavery. Mr. Smith, of Tennessee, obtained the floor when the committee rose, and the Houao ad journed. Proceedings ef To-Day. In the Senate, to-day, Mr. Crittenden pre sented a memorial from J. M. Stanley, the artist, asking Congress to purchase his gallery of Indian portraits ; referred to Committee on Indian Affairs. Mr. Mason reported from the Foreign Af fairs Committee, a joint resolution authorising Dr. Kane and his associate officers on tho Arc tic exploring expedition, to accept gifts or tes timonials from tho government of Britain, whioh was debated by Messrs. Crittenden Bayard, Toucey, Butler, and Biggs against it, and Messrs. Mason and Seward for it, ere we went to press. In the House, thoy went into Committee of J tho Whole on the state of tho Union (Mr Mace in the chair.) Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, moved to lay aside the subject of the President's message, tempo rarily, and proceed to the consideration <lf the annual pension appropriation bill, and one or two other public appropriation bills, which had been returned amended from the Senate Mr Smith of Tenn , who was entitled to the floor, haying consented to this arrange ment, the said motion was agreed to The Senate's amendments to the pension appropriation bill were then considered and disnoood of. Xhe Senate's amendments to'ho West Point Academy appropriation bill were next taken up, considered and disposed of, after debate between Messrs. Letchcr, Howard and Yalk the discussion being upon tho item to cover the erection of suitable stables there. A Smsiblk Freak of Fashion ?

At ten minutes after eleven tho music plays good night, and the hostess takes ner place to pay the parting compliments to her visiters.
