The iHttlligeneer says of aqueduct appro priation in the Deficiency bill, with great force and truth : 44 The Secretary of the Interior, in obedi ence to his views of the public interest, yet with due regard to a proper economy, recom mended to Ctngrew, at the opening of the session. various appropriations, moat of them small, for public object* at the seat of govern ment; and as the season had so far advanced for all out-of-door work, the Senate, to avoid delay, deemed it prudent to insert appropria tion for most of these objects in the 'deficiency billbut tbo financial committeo of the House, to which the Senate's amendments were referred, has reported against them. Amorg*t them is the appropriation for con tinuing the aqueduct for supplying the city with pure water. The opposition of the hon orable committee to these appropriations, and especially the important one for the aqueduct, hu filled our citizens with the deepest anxie tv; and many of them have given vent to tfceir feelings and to very cogent arguments, which they desire to address to the House through our columns, against the action of the committee Had we room for all of these com munications we could hardly presume them to be necessary to impart to the members of the House a correct understanding of the case The committee have probably reported against the appropriations for the same rea son that they were objected to by some of the most liberal gentlemen of the Senate, namely, that they were out of place in a bill simply to supply ''deficiencies in former appropria tions. However correct in point of form this objection may have been, the Senate conclu ded it best, instead of waiting to make pro vision for the objects in the general appropria tion bill, which will probably not be passed before August, to save three or four of the best working months in the year by inserting the appropriations in the deficiency bill. As no one supposes that the House can think now cf abandoning a work so important, indeed so necessary for Government and People, and of which so great a portion of its expense has been already incurred, and as the cost has. in whatever bill, to come out of the Treasury, there is good reason to hope that tho honor able House will view the subject in the same light that guided the course of the Senate, and consider that a wise economy will justify the little deviation from parliamentary f>rm, if any really exist, of retaining in the bill tho items which, on full consideration, the honor able Senato deemed that they consulted the public interest in placing there. While, therefore, wo beg our city friends to pardon the nun-insertion of their communications, we take leave to assure them of our entire confi dence that they will not find the House ot Representatives acting in the case either cap tiously or illiberally.'" The Union reviews the history of the Ne braska bill under the heading of 41 The Power of a Great Principle." The editor shows, we think, that the reaction on the principle in volved is complete in the popular mind. He also quotes Judge John McLean, of Ohio, to sh'Wthat that distinguished jurist hasUng held that Congress ha* no power whatever >ver slavery in the Territories. WA8HINGT0N NEWS AND GOSSIP Our Considerate Neighbor ?Our talented, truthful and ingenuous neighbor is exceed ingly concerned at our refusal to notice in any manner the allegations republished by himself on Thursday last, and affectionately insists that we shall permit him?so overflow ing with kind regard for us, as we have every reason to know him to be?to dictate to us a line of conduct. We must of course thank him for his profuse professions of disinterest ed solicitude in our behalf, which are so capi tally in keeping with the degree of moral honesty he has manifested in the cotduct of his journal towards all gentlemen with whom he differs politically, who, from highest to lowest, are usually represented by him to be monsters in their character. We have, bow ever, respectfully to inform him that we are not in the habit of noticing allegations pub lished under circumstances such as those were which be seized the opportunity to republish, accompanying them with the falsehood em braced in his intimation that he did so through kind feeling towards us. To notice them in any manner would be playing the ancient dame almost sufficiently well to qualify us to conduct his paper. Upon the matter of tho offer to sell the Organ to a Democrat, and tho tender of the concern's influence to secure the election of the Democratic nominee for Houso Printer, cur ingenuous neighbor should re^mber that all the world comprehend the full fore? of the maxim of the law, qui facit juralium, facit per se, (what one does by another, he does by himself.?Ed ) Our talented, truthfal, aud ingenuous neighbor bungles, stumble* and stutters out a s >rt of answer to our state ment concerning the House printing affair, which leaves on the luind of tho reader the irresistible impression that he has, so far, only told a portion of the story, in which be essays to justify the proportion to sell the votes of his nominal political friends in the House? withont authority from them, of course?to sccure the election of a Democratic party nominee to the office to which is attached all their printing patronage, on the grotfnd that the $10,090 demanded for that particular con sideration, was wanted to continue the ex istence of aa American party paper at th's point Our disinterested neighbor of course did not think of himself throughout this effort to sell; not he: f,r he never thinks of himself, and the great pecuniary sacrifices he has been making for many years for bis party, con cerning which he published so many columns of amusing jeremiad previous to the election of a liuu.-e printer, and subsequently, so many of bitter wailing and indiscriminate accusa tion against all who aided to dash his hopes on that occasion. Our neighbor, according to h>s baulky explanation, was willing to sell his Party *n 'bat election, and to pocket the pro ceeds of the rale ; his shallow plea being the party s >>wn go<?l? a plea Mieh a* is always essayed by just such peuple under ju*t such circumstances. Vet he w??uld do nothing that is not honorable?not he. Now, it strikes us that the key to the fact that he failed to re ceive a single vote alter a year and a half of Lard lagging for them?alter playing in his column* ultra anti-Abolitionist until he found that no southern member was so lost to self respect as to be willing to vote for him, and then playing the rabid anti-scuthern man until the Free Soilers he thus aimed to con ciliate, let him kuow that they would not touch any such "pig" yesterday and "puppy" to-dsy with a forty-f.>ot pole?that the key, we write to the treatment he received at the hands of every gentleman in Congress, of hi* party, is that every man of theui appreciated hi* horv>r precisely at the value be* himself Mti upon it. Knowing what he considered hot orable conduct on his part, &i per his confes fession on Saturday last, they very prudently declined trusting him. If he will calmly read over hi* attempt to justify his complieity with the effort to sell his party on the House printing question, if his common sense has not all gone he will perceive in it ample reason why we have lit tle faith indeed in his advice where a ques tion of honor may be concerned, lie should not expect U3 to set a higher estimate upon his views of honor, than his own, or that of his party in Congress. Shocking.?The New York Tribune mourns lugubriously over the conservative tendencies of the times on both sides of the Atlantic While people of property in Europe are com bining to crush out every spark of the radical fire that raged there in 1848, according to this editor, the tendency of the popular mind in the United States is decidedly against what ha regards as "progress." lie quotes, to sus tain this position, popular demonstrations in the Old World approbatory of the measures of the governments to prevent, in this age, the spread of the mania for revolution that star tled the world in 1848; or, rather, especially tho recurrence of what were the results of that general prevalence of liberalism in the sense in which tho Tribuns applies the term. He also quotes recent action by United States' Legislatures and verdicts at the polls to sus tain his position that the tendency of times in this country is decided conservative In this he is oertainly correot. Our own coun trymen, nearly to a man, sympathised with the European revolutienists in 1849. Subse quently, on coming to know them better, prin. cipally through the publications of their Amer ican organ, the Tribune itself, that sympathy has well nigh vanished. Were such another series of attempts to revolutionise Europe to commence to oc;ur to morrow, it is very cer tain that not a tithe of the American sympa thy with them that was so lately manifested would be shown So far as its wailing over tho decline of its " cause of progress" in the United States is concerned, we have to say that it may credit that to the repulsive features of its cause as Illustrated not ouly in its own ultraisms, but in the palpable truth that wherever those sympathizing with it have of late temporarily obtained pow er under any pretence whatever they have manifested a disposition to cast aside all experience, all moral and legal obli gation, all common sense and all respect for the rights of any, which may stand in the way of the instant accomplishment of their purposes usually springing from the brain* of vision ary and merely impudent deinagrgae?, and ignorant dreamers concerning the science of government. The reccnt speech of Mr. (iranger, in the House of Representatives?a fair specimen indeed, of the utter ignorance of law and history, cotemporaneous and of by gone days that marks the minds of many of those who have managed to get into American public life on the hobbies of the Tribmu?iJtords a striking illustration of the reason why the good sense and sound patriotism of the coun try is at length being awakened to the im portance of putting a stop to what the New York journal considers progres?. The Albany and Porpoise.?The bill fixing the date from which the pensions to the wid ows and orphans of the officers, seamen and marines lost in the two United States vessels named above, commences?that passed by the Senate last week, fixes, for those oi'the Alba ny, at the 18th of April, 1855, and of the Por poise, at the 29th of June, of the same year The beneficiaries under this bill owe a debt of gratitude to Senator Fish, under whose auspices the Senate acted favorably upon it so very promptly. Persons interested under this bill, should apply to the Fourth Auditor of the Treasury. Showing the Cloven Foot ?Few journals make louder professions of devotion to the constitutional rights of tho South, than tbe New York Express. Its paragraphs con demnatory of tho labors and aims of Aboli tionism are more quoted by the Know Noth ing papers of the South, than those of any other journal printed north of Mas n and Dixon's line ; all of which are by some hc cus pocus sought to be attributed, as so much political capital, to account of Mr. Fill more; the Ejp>ess being the recognized organ of that gentleman's personal party in New York city. It is equally as proper that his cause shall bear tho responsibility attached to the course of the Express with reference to the Connecticut election, in progress to day. That journal is urging its party to vote Ijt Abolitionists, wherever that policy may be necessary to eeeure the defeat of candi dates who stand by the Nebraska bill, because the latter occupy that position. There on be no mistaking its advice on this subject, as the reader will perceive from the following brief extracts from its issue of Friday last: 44 The real, practical meaning of the elec tion in Connecticut is, whether or not, the United States Senator Toucey shall be re elected to represent Connecticut for six years more;?and such being the issue, none of us. in the North, who resisted the annulment of the Missouri compact, can be indifferent to the election " * * * # ? * 44 The Express not only has a great many readers in Connecticut, but among men here, and elsewhere, who from business associations, naturally exercise there a large influence over the Conservative Public mind. Knowing as these readers well do,?that mere sectionalism is, in our opinion, the worst and most danger ous political ism of tbe day,?they mav be surprised, perhaps, to hear us talk thus. " * **?*## 44 Wo may be told, however,?that if we conservative men thus shuttle off Toucey, we m iy shuttle on some Black Republican in his stead. Well,?if this is so,?we should only exchange one very bad slavery ag.tation man for another." **###* 44 It is just as well for us Northern conserva tive men then to have in Congress Anti-Slavery agitation, as Pro Slavery agitation, though what is really wanted, is a safe, sound, consti tutional man of the school of Koger Sherman, the great shoemaker, and of Oliver Ellsworth, eminent man of tbe olden time. We hope to see Connecticut exchange oft Toucey for some sound, sensible American, who, however anti slavery he may be, will live up to his oath, to support the Constitution, in principle, in sub stance, and in spirit?with its Inevitable com promises. and concessions,?such as have ever been made from the day tbe Constitution wis formed?when Koger Sherman, in Philadel phia. in 1786, led off in the North, to make i&eiu. and James Madison led off in the South. ? ilene?, our conclusion is,?that no Con necticut man should hesitate 4'to pitch into" election, in order to oust Toucey,?and the -Xh?fn>V\*UTe. h8i?. more he should pitch in,"?tor, In 1854 Touceybrok.com pacU contract, and obligations, solemnly made in 1820, and in 1850.^ ' Senator Toucey possesses the onftdence, esteem, and gratitude of every really patriotic Southern Know Nothing, because ha did that for which this chief organ of the immediate coterie of?Mr. Fillmore urges its party in Connecticut to do their tooat to eltot an aboli tionVst in his stead, if that be necessary to eompass his defeat. There is food for reflection on the part of the Fillmoreites of the 8outh in these brief extracts from the Express?ample food for serious reflection, indeed. Senator 8oward.?It was expccted this morning that Mr Seward?Mr. Geyer firing way for the time being?would commence his speech on the Kansas question. If he does so, he will occupy the attention of the Senate until a late hour, if not through to-morrow's session also. His reputation as a reasoner and investigator will, of course, draw an im mense crowd to the Senate ehamber. Mr. Geyer's deserved oratorical fame will also insure a very large audience of the tal ent, distinction and fashion of the federal metropolis to the Senate chamber whenever ho may deliver his expected speech. There is a Complete Union between the three opposition parties running guberna torial candidates <n the Connecticut election that takes place to-daj*?that is, for candidates for tho Legislature, who are probably to elect the Governor and Lieutenant Governor even tually. In nearly eveTy town in the State, tho Whigs, Know Nothings, and Rspublicara have combined on the same Legislative can didates. Under such circumstances, wo con fess that we shall be surprised, indeed, if they fail, thus united, to beat the Democrats. Easiness of the General land Office - There were eleven hundred and eight letters received and registered at the Ger.eral Land Office during the week ending Saturday, the 5th instant; being the largest number ever re ceived by that office in any one week.

In the Senate, to-day, Mr. Cass presented a petition from tho self-styled Legislature of Kansas, and moved that it be printed. j On this motion a debate ensued, in which Messrs Butler and Bayard opposed it, and Mr. Cass advocated it, until tbe hour for taking up the special order arrived, when it was laid aside. The House bounty land bill?the special order for half-past 12?was then taken up, and Mr. Foot was engaged in advocating it as we went to press. In the House, Mr. Ball moved to suspend tho rule* to enable him to introduce a resolu tion according to the Committee on the Public Buildings and Public Grounds a olerk, &t four dollars per diem, as long as they may deem the services of one necessary ; rules not sus pended. Mr. Phelps moved to go into Committee of the whole ; after previously moving a resolu tion to close tbe general debate on the defi ciercy bill at 3 p. m . which was laid on the table. Mr. Mace presented a memorial (embracing a State Constitution) from the self-styled State Legislature of Kansas ; referred to the Terri tories Coinmitteo. Mr. M moved a resolution to print 10,000 extra copies of this memorial and accompany ing papers; referred to tbe Elections Com mittee Mr. Brighain reported from the Elections Committee a resolution declaring Mr. Mar shall of Illinois entitled to his present scat in tbe Hou.^e, which had been contested. Also, another declaring that the contcstan* is not entitled to tho seat in the House to which Mr. Senator Trumbull was elected. These resolutions embraced clauses accordir g mileage and per diem to tbo contestants in both these case^. Mr. McMullcn addressed the llouae again-t the practice of paying contestants for scats in the House indiscriminately. Letter prom Dr. Saver.?We aro glad to learn from the following lotter that our fair friond has rcached ber home in safety, and that her trip thither was so satisfactory. We hope, also, that ber Washington visit afforded pleasing remembrances enough to her to in duce a speedy repetition - Pine Cott, Anril 3, 1856 Editor of the Star: You said 1 must drop you a note occasionally in my wanderings; and this is the first moment of time I could call my own to give another. Home again for a few short days ; and what a contrast to my Southern life. No bustle, strife or tur moil ; no alarums to awaken me from the quiet of dream land; nought save the quiet of a most retired country home, among the snow banks and neighboring mud ruts, shutting one within doors with mock defiance as the warm sun woo? us lovingly to come forth and luxuriate beneath its smiling face Spring kisses with her warm breath the huge snow banks, which melt softly before ber ardent gaxe; suffusing the earth with torrents of tears, and wearing deep furrows into its aged, though icy cheekB. You aro, dcubtless. luxuriating amidst the spring breeses, mellowing your soil for the waiting plowshare, while we an j1 gging through the snow banks, miring in the mud, or tipping in the guttei. Yet this is a lovely spot when nature smiles her sweet est, which she will soon, throwing off her sombre dress, step forth in purer, greener, fresher robes. I bad a delightful trip home. Wherever I stopped I met such kind, noble friends, not afraid to recognize my individuality lest they should tarnish their own. In Baltimore, my reception was most kindly by the press, while it did me good to talk before such an enthu siastic audience. The hall was very large, causing the number to seem less than there really were present, as there woro several hundred out each evening, nearly double the second night, which was encouraging I was strongly urged to repeat one of my lectures, but time called me onward I also reoeived a pleasant complimentary ticket from the com mittee of the Yonng Men's Christian Associa tion to attend their festival I met a kind re ception from several old and some new frieadi in Philadelphia, especially tbe gallant, noble - hearted Col. W., of the Sun. who interested himself in my welfare, for which I retain tbe kindliest remembrance. All of this, and much more, fertilises the oasis in the desert of exist once, o'er which the rude tempest of the worla riots harshly, poisoning by its simoon breath the hopes and aspirations struggling for su premacy.
