EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: WEDIUCSDAY April SS, >911. IZT Advertisement* should be handed la bv M o'clock, m., otherwise they m*y not appear ujiUI the neat day. 6PIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Union protest* with ranch force and feeling against the course of the Pennsylva man and the Harrisburg Patriot in en dorsing the style of conducting the canvass of Mr. Buchanan for the Cincinnati nomination, in which the Washington Sentinel indulges. The Intelligencer commends the President's recent speech at Annapolis for the good taste, patriotio sentiments, and interesting refer ences it embraces. WASHINGTON NEWS AMD GOSSIP The National Water Works.-Those in terested in the continued advancement and prosperity of the Federal city?the creation and ward of the General Government?need not despair at the treatment it seems likely to receive throughout this session at the hands of the House of Representatives of the I nite l States, ad manifested in the vote of the day before yesterday upon the Water Works ques tion. Much of the existing hostility of honor able members to the city of Washington (and a few of them cannot hear the name of the city callcd without breaking out with some accusation or other against it, which is wholly baseless) arises from the deliberate and sinister misrepresentations of parties, some of whom are cititens heretofore supposed to have some interest here. Others of these parties are of the class of hawks and buizards who hovor in Ihe Congressional atmosphere, always sweep ing around for prey. And, some of tho others, again, are almost entire strangers in Wash ington, who, being speculators in charter getting. go wherever a legislative body may be supposed to be open to their peculiar blac. disbments. Such parties have, for the last month, been plying the ears of the member? of Congress with misrepresentations concern ing the facta involved in the National Aque duct question. Professing to be seriously alarmed at the alleged extravagance of the plan of General Washington to construct permanent Water Works for the supply of Government property here, they seek to make capital against it by representing it a? a work for the benefit of the individual citizens of the federal city. They know, while makiDg such representations, that, as being constructed, no citixen of Washington is to be entitled to draw from it a gallon of water for any purpose whatever; which priv ilege cannot be accorded by any power short ? that of Congress itself, and only on such terms as Congress itself may dictate They are busily engaged around the lob bies of the House backbiting and maligning the character of this community, in order to justify and account for the disinterested mo tives with which they profess to have entered upon the crusade against Washington city involved in their efforts to defeat the National Water Works appropriation, that they may feather their own nests by procuring Con gress to charter them?elves, individually, into a Washington Water Works Companv. Most < f the "outsiders," whether residiDg'in Wash ington or elsewhere, who have urged or recom mended to any member cf Congress not to adopt the senate's Water Works amendment to the deficiency bill are in this scheme, as far as we can learn. If a single man of them all fails be laboring to turn a penny for himself while so doing, we have yet to learn his name. Not long since the prime movers of the band who are offering to take a charter to con struct these works at less than the cost as esti mated by those who are charged with their superintendence, hearing that the Legislature of Maryland, ( moved to pity for the pecuniary ruin brought upon thousand? of Chesapeake and Ohio Cinal stockholders, bondholders, and business men of Maryland, the District and elsewhere, by the State's system of man aging that work solely for the benefit of its rival-the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad)?wad aboat to sell its controlling interest therein to the bondholders, under a pledge that the latter should raise the sum necessary to put the canal in complete order, went to Annap olis, anl representing themselves as capital ists, offered for it a higher price than the Stata authorities had a-roed to take from those really interested in the efficiency of the canal The arracgements for the transfer of the State s interest in the work to the bond holders and individual stockholders, at ?n appraise i valuation, had been completed, and the s&ie r-as about to be consummated, when these gentlemen made their offer of a higher price Bfiiig unknown comparatively, in An napolis, their representations with reference to their means of complying with such an agreement of course frightened the Legisla ture from their .original arrangement; as it would never do to face their constituents with an admission that they had taken less money for the State's property in the canal, than other responsible parties stood ready to give. The State accordingly flew from its bargain, and only found out when it was too near the termination of the session to repair the injury thus done, that it was a difficult matter to raise among the whole party of higher bid ders, the money sufficient to pay for the oyster suppers and trimmings which went rery far towards wheedling the members into that last act of bad faith towards the Chesa peake an 1 Ohio canal company, and those whose property and business depend on the proper management of that great enterprise. ?"?e of tl>?m have the first red cent of the I*rge amount of money they proposed on that ???<"?, of make- h dr7K,>^Smen'tai,0".?boe ' Ac ? 0f to l.aru Ik. f?t, M ,f Q"u u c.rUir, b, .-limit,, lh, 6r? man be meets. 3 et W. ,.?t. ,!?? i?t. th.t tu ? U. H.?. ?, ?4.?u?d frKiwl, (b? ? bout this proposed scheme in lieu ,r th National Water Works as being constructed under the plan long since adopted by Congress after careful investigation It is neither more n r less than a scheme to enable a needy set ?i a Iventurers to raise the wind, by selling in Wall street or elsewhere, the ebarter for a Washington Water Works company, they are seeking at the hands of National Legis lator NicaragUA.-The New York correspondent the Intelligencer, in that p*pw of ^ d-y states that on the Orisaba's arrival at * ? ? um del Norte the ngents of the Transit laid up the river boats, pursuant tf I instructions from the owners in New York, and that Walker bad made them large offers to continue to run them contrary to those in structions. Thereby hangs a tale. Walker had laid a plan to seize the ooean steamer of the company on the Paeific side> on her trip to meet the last boat sent from New York by the company. His purpose was to place his followers on her and to sail for Punta Arenas. This was his original scheme for the invasion of Costa Rica. But the com pany defeated his plan by sending agents to meet the Pacific boat on the ooean and warn her commander not to go in at San Juan del Sur. They met her on the ocean, within six hours sail of San Juan del Sur; and her com mander, according to instructions, proceeded straightway down to Panama, oarrying a large number of unwilling fillibusters thither who had started on her from San Francisco only to join Walker Being disappointed in getting possession of the steamship, Walker was forced to invade Costa Rica overland, for which he was by no means prepared?the glowing letters from his army to the oontrary notwithstanding. The same steamer carried out other agents of the company, charged with orders to the com pany's agent who manages the river boats (who had also been appointed the receiver to take charge of them under Walker's act, by which he assumed to confiscate them) to lay them up at San Juan. He obeyed that order, (it seems, by the Intelligencer't correspondent) and thus, we presume, prevented the two or three hundred fillibusters who went out on the Orizaba, from reaching Walker, as a march, overland to him is impossible, and no other means of conveyance is to be found there. It is not wonderful, therefore, that Walker offered the agent large promises of reward if he would keep the boats running on the river. We have every reason to be lieve that they are at this moment safe from any raid of fillibusters, through the protection of a man-of-war of England. France, or the United States ; so that Walker's hopes of aid from the fillibufters, who last went out to join him from New York and New Orleans, havo been cut off in all probability. We are ex pecting that the Orizaba on her return to New York will bring back her cargo of adventurers with very long faces on them, indeed. Mr. Buchanan.?The reader will perceive from an item in our telegraphic column that Mr. Buchanan has reached New York. His true friends, and all true Democrats will re joice at his opportune arrival, because it af fords him an opportunity at once to put a stop to the suicidal system of advocating his nomination, to which imprudent men among his immediate friends are now resorting. The Portsmouth ?We understand that the sailing instructions to the U. S. ship-of-war Portsmouth, now laying at Norfolk ready for sea, left the bepaitment this morning. Her destination is to join the East India squadron We presume that she will sail in a day or two. Confiimed?Yesterday, the Senate con firmed the nomination of Mr. A. W.

[BT TILEG RAPH 1 New You, April 23?The Havre end Southampton United States mail steamship Arago arrived at her dock at about 9 o'clock this morning, with dates from those ports to the 9th inst?four days later than the advices by the Africa. Mr. Buchanan is a passenger. The Arago brings no news of atriking im portance The steamship Arabia, from Boston and Halifax, had arrived out [8*rOND DISPATCH.J The Arago brings one hundred and thirty nassengers. Among them is Henry Dubois, Minister from Holland to the United States The Arago left Cowes on the morning of the 10th. She came south of the Banks, expe rienced moderate weather, and saw no ice. She brings the second edition of Wednes day's (the 9th) London Times. The steamship Edinburgh, from this port, arrived in the Clyde on the 4th. The Her mann, also from this port, arrived off Cowea on the 6th ; and the Arabia, from Bo?u>n, at Liverpool on the same day. The French steamer Barcelona, arrived out on the 5th. The two English steamer* that went in search of the Pacific had returned to Galway, after a fruitless cruise of nine days. The proceedings of the Peace Congress con tinue. It is said that Austria gives trouble by persistently refusing to fix the time for evacu ating the Principalities. Austria's pretext is the necessity of protecting the country against disorder until a regular administration shall have been established, though she is bound by the treaty to qu t the Ottoman territory on the conclusion of peace. Russia, is is said, strongly adheres to Aus tria's position. Later intelligence, however, states, that the Austrian troops were leaving the Princi palities Tiie French army is to be reduced from six hundred thousand to four hundred thousand troops. It is believed that Russia will send an am bassador to Turin as soon aa the ratifications are exchanged. Advices from St. Peteraburg state that the nrohibition of the expert of Russian produce aas been repealed. The Czar had issued an ukase, stating that the two fleets hitherto maintained by Russia in the Black Sea and Sea of Agoff, are not to be reinstated. Many grain laden vessels, lying at Odessa, have received orders to proceed to Marseilles. A considerable fall had taken place in the market at the latter place in consequence. It was reported in Berlin that the British Cabinet had decided to reject the proposition for a capitulation of the Sound dues on the terms offered by Denmark, but would m<ike a proposition itself. A dispatch from Paris states that the Allies

have sent orders to their fleets to raiae all blockades which have kept Russian vessels in neutral ports. The French government denies contempla ting 8? nding any expedition te Madagascar, but advices from Toulon show the contrary The Russian Minister of Finance issued a notice on the ith instant, that in consequence of the signing of a treaty of peace, merchant vessels of the Western powers would be ad mitted to Russian ports La Nurd states that the oxchange of ratifi cation- would be effected by the 2(Jth. The ship Red U iuntlet, from Melbourne, reports that the ship Schomberg had gone to pieces. The English money market was but little changed. The funds however, were rather heavy, and foreign securities wero improving W. D. Young, shipowner, and insurance broker of Liverpool, had failed for a larse ?mount. The London corn market was steady. Reports from the manufacturing districts are favorable. TIIE MARKETS. The Liverpool cotton market since the de parture of the Africa, had been steady, and ? rices were firmly maintained. The sales of [onday were 10.0U0 and Tuesday 8 *00 bales. The advices from the United States had no effect on the market. The Manchester market was unchanged and firm. Under heavy arrivals of breadstuff*, wheat and corn were rtther easier Ciood flour was unchanged in price, but inferior Western was neglected. Beef and pork were flat at unchanged rates. Bacon waa in good demand. Lard was offer ing treely at 52a54. Tallow was firm. Consols for money were quoted at the clofe at 93. At the Democratic county convention held at Annapolis on . the 221, instant, reso lutions were passed endorsing the Nebraska Bill, approving of the administration of Pres ided Fierce, and the course of Governor Piatt, and Huns.
