EVENING STAR. W A BHIWOTOl 01T Y : SATURDAY May 3, 1N?. |[T AdverUMDienti should b? handed In by 1*2 o'clock, m., otherwise they may not appear nnlll Ui? nest day. THE WISELY STAB, To day, embraces a vast quantity of cur rant Dews of interest. In addition to its per fect compendium of Washington News and Gossip for the past week, it has all the late exciting intelligence from Nicaragua, Oregon, and Europe, together with important advices from California and other quarters ; with edi torials, poetry, tales, local news, and personal intelligence?making altogether just such a paper as is sure to be a welcome visitor at every fireside. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Intelligencer republishes the celebrated declaration of the Union party members of Congress in 1851, pledging themselves to re gard the settlement of the slavery quection as involved in the enactment of the Compromise measures of 1S50 as final and abiding, and adds: " How unfortunate has it been for tha pub lic tranquillity that its wise determination and counsel were in an evil hour departed from! " Tha Union publishes a letter from tba Sec retary of the Navy to the chairman of the Senate's Naval Affairs Committee, from which we gather that the Attorney General, on being consulted as to tha legality of tha manner in which tha late Naval Retiring Board was or ganised and proceeded, sanctioned all the preparations under which it began its labors. PERSONAL. .... Qen. Robles, the Mexican Minister, has returned to this city, and is at Willards". .... Wo learn that Mr. Sidney Webster, the President's Private Secretary, has Iclt Washington for a brief visit to New York. .... Francis P Blair, of Maryland, has ad dressed a long letter to his *' Republican" friends of New York about slavery. .... Major Mordecai, Richard Delafield, and G. B. McClelland, U. S. A., who were sent out to Russia by our Government, have arrived atWillards'. .... Wa regret to learn that Senator Bigler has been quite ill, at his lodgings iu this citjr, lor a week past. His friends, however, will ba glad to hear that he is now much better, and that his early recovery is looked for. .... Henry Dinear, a German, who was committed on a charge of picking pockets during the recent fire, hung himself in Mova mensing prison, in Philadelphia, yesterday morning. A large amount of funds was found upon his person, which led to tha discovery that he was possessed of amnle means, show ing that the charge was evidently a mistake. .... Among the arrivals from California i? Mr. Wm V. Wells, a gentleman who has been connected with the Alia Calrj'omian, during the past year, and the products of whose pen have been an interesting feature in its col umns. Mr Well* goes to New York for the purpose of attending to the publication of a work which he has written upon Honduras. Mr. Wells has resided in California for some years, and since 1851 has been editorially con nected with the San Francisco press. ....Mr- Pierre Soule has consented to ad dress the citizens of New Orleans on the Cen tral American question In the note giving his consent he refers iu the following terms to Walker : "Though entirely unconnected with the schemes and fortune of the gallant adven turer who so nobly defends the rights of an oppressed people against the tyranny of a handful of petty despots who hold them in ab ject and almost beastly subjection, I have watched his course with intense solicitude, and perhans sympathised deeply with his as pirations. Mb. Everett ajid the Mocst* Estate.?Mr. Everett, in a letter In which he accepts an invitation to deliver his Washing ton Address, at Springfield, Mass , says: " I am gratified that you concur with me in the wish to appropriate the proceeds in aid of the fund for the purchase of Mount Vernon The recent letters of the proprietor throw some doubt on his present willingness to sell the estate. It cannot, doubted, that it will eventually become public property. In the meantime I do not understand that the efforts making to raise the requisite funds will be relaxed. The sums which have already been received by me have been sjfely and advantageously invested in trust, and I shall make the same disposition of what may here after come into my hands, without the de duction of a dollar for personal expenses. Should the attempt to purchase Mount Vernon eventually fail, the funds raised can be ap propriated to some other patriotic purpose of general interest connected with the memory of W ashington." New Mcbic.?Hilbus has with his usual promptness laid upon our table two of his re cent publications " The Canary," by the ac complished Foertsch, and "The Bee Gum," (music by J. E. Search) as sung by that irre sistibly comic genius, Harry Lehr. A BEArTircL Complexion may easily be acquired by using the "/>?/?? of a Thousand i*7oicers.'

The superiority of American inventive genius, not only over that of our English pro genitors, but indeed of all other nations has beoome too tangible to be disputed. It was notorious at the World's Fair in London, that the Americans far outstriped all others in the useful inventions which they supplied. We beat the English in vessels, railroads, tele graphs and manufactures by power. We are beating them in the scientific arts of Chemis try and Medicine, as we have long beat the rest of mankind. A new and practical proof of this assertion is shown in the fact that the principle remedies of the allied armies of the hast are furnished from the laboratory of our own countryman Dr. J. C Ayer of Lowell, is filling orders for immense quanaities of hi? Cherry Pectoral and Cathartic Pills, for both the land and sea forces in Turkey His medicines have been tried and approved by those in power who found them tho moet reliable which they could procure for the ex egencies in which are to be employed ? N Y. City Timts. Tee Trocble is Kashas ?A despatch in the Louisville Courier from Eansas states that Sheriff Jones, it was thought, would survive his wound. The despatch also says: Ex Governor Ueeder, on his arrival from Wa h ingU>n at Lawrence, has addressed the people advising resistance to the territorial laws to tbe last extremity. Five companies of the I. Htatcs troops under the command of Col. fcumner have left Fort Leavenworth for Law rence, the seat of trouble. Health or Norfole ?The Board of Health at Norfolk in noticing reports of the yellow fever being in that city say there has not been a case there of yellow fever since the last of October; that the health of city never was better, but advise, notwithstanding the fact that the disease even as far south as New Or leans, never makes its appearance before the 1st of August, the use of tho moet stringent precautionary measures. ? . m - . | WASHINGTON NIW8 AND GOSSIP The Panama Biot ?We feel well assured that this Government have already taken the necessary steps to render the Panama route as safe from riotous molestation hereafter as any railroad route in the United States The true cause of the trouble was, undoubt edly. the fact that the construction (comple tion) of the railroad across the isthmus had oompletcly cut off the income of nearly every native New Granadian who, for some years past, had been living upon tho money extort ed, in a thousand ways, from passengers to and from California. The amount (aggregate) of money assuredly spent among those people by travelers has been immense; affording to thou sands of them the means of living in com parative idleness and luxury. The comple tion of the railroad and its appurtenances upon the Paciflo shore, however, completely revolutionised the transit business there, and left tho greasers without a dollar. They are ignorant, lawless, and vicious, and one such murderous outbreak on their part was to have been expected, more especially after what occurred not very long sinoe at Erie, Pont sylvania, where, fora similar cause, a railroad track was torn up, and property to the value ?! many thousands of dollars was destroyed with somo lives, if our memory is oorrect. It is only to be regretted that the rioters on that occasion were not punished as severely as the New Granadian Government will doubt less punish the chief actors in the recent mur ders and robberies. The failure to punish the Erie rioters, by the by, has already re suited in a recurrence of railroad riots there, according to papers received a day or two sinoc. An American naval force sufficient to put down any effort to repeat the late affair outside of the walls of Panama, will be at hand by the time the next steamer from Now York can rcach Aapinwall; we apprehend with orders to do so at all hazards, if neces sary. However, our expeotation is that the New Granadian Government has already caused a scorce or so of tho banditti to be hur.g ; tor it by no means stands on trifles when dealing with that claw of its subjects. The maintenance of its transit route in safe ty and regularly oporating is a matter of prime impcrtaace to New Granada; afford ing as that does the Government's chief source of revenue. Under these circumstances, we expect that the next news from that quarter will tell that a terrible and very convincing lesson has already been taught to the greasers of Panama. The Cause Why.?Among those most active in the work of lobbying to defeat the pending national aqueduct appropriation, is acontrac tor now connected with the works. He has taken a contract at losing prioes, and tho su perintendent holds him to his obligations, as in duty bound to do. If the appropriation can be defeated, the individual hopes that his sureties will, of course, *e released, the Gov ernment having failed to comply with its ob ligations. So he is moving heaven and earth to discredit the present plan, and to create the impression that his company (in the moon) will build a much better affair for much less money, Ae ; in fact he aims to do anything that will result in defeating the appropriation All this has grown out of his over-eagernoss to obtain his original contract, whioh was let at ruinous rates, as good seourity was offered for its fulfilment. We need hardly say that this contractor does not belong here; for our fellow citizens of the District of Columbia are not the men who take Government contracts at low prices. The Conference Committee ?The Confer ence Committee on the National Water Works appointed a few days sinoe having failed-to agTee, another was appointed by the Vice President and Speakeryesterday. It is under stood that Messrs. Davis of Maryland, Thurs ton, and Seward of Georgia, could not be in duced to abate an f of their original hostility to the Works. Messrs. Pringle, McMullin and Stanton were named as the new committee on tho part of the House. Our fellow citixens can only hope that the Speaker in making his selections has not been guided by the spirit ol animo;ity to the Federal city that h ^ been openly mani tested by too many honorable members of lato. Ihe Judge Irwin'g Court -Those in Con gress who are moving against Judge Irwin of the U.S. Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, are apparently in earnest, and w.11 not rest until they effect the enactment of a law repealing the statute Voder which his court exists. Some years ago, articles of im peachment against him were prepared, and introduced into Congress; but the matter was dropped, it being understood that he deigned re igning. The particular cause of complaint alleged against him at this time is the char* that he has kept his court open for six months without there being any necessity for so doinir on his part, and at a heavy, and, of course, un necessary expense to the national treasury. Naval Engineer Board -The Board of Na val Engineers to examine candidates (of that branch of the service) for promotion, has been ordered to meet in this city. The candidates for promotion, are required to report to the Engineer-in Chief, Mr. Martin, at hi. oflice in the Department, on the 19th inst. Candidates for admusion are to be examined on the 2d of June, proximo. Persons wishing to become such candidates are required to file in the Department satisfactory testimony relative to their character and qualifications to perform hejduues of Third Assistant Engineers in the Lnited States Navy, and they will be author ed to go before the Board for examination. Xhey must also state their age The Speech.?The speech delivered yester ay by Senator Benjamin, upon tho Kansas question, has been the subject of more con versation, among leading publio men in Wash ington, than any other dolivered in either Sou., tbu ?Mion.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, Mr. Benjamin delivered a speech on the pending Kansas State bill, wherein he dis cussed the subject at length, taking the ground that on the slavery question all compromises were futile except those of the Constitution it self. lie thought that the great statesmen of 1820 had made an unfortunate error in at tempting a settlement lie reviewed the opin ions of Northern Senators, and in responding particularly to the declaration of Mr. Seward that slavery was an outlaw by the laws of na tions, he quoted the opinion of the Supreme Court of the United States delivered by Chief Justice Marshall, to show the fallaoy of this position. Mr. B. descanted freely upon the objects of Northern agitators, whose purposes he declared to be, first, to attain political power in Congress, and then to carry out aTk> lition in its fullest extent. He concluded by defining his nolitioal position, declaring that as there nal been in 1852 no differ ence on the subject of slavery, the engross ing question, between the Democratic party and the old Whig party, of which he had been a devoted member, and as the issue in the coming Presidential election must be between the Democratic and the Republican parties, he would join the former in the impending struggle, and give it whatever aid his humble Siwers co*ld afford. He considered the Know othing party as having destroyed or absorb ed the Whig party of the North, and that its mystic ceremonies had been used only to give power and influence to the Abolition party, whose objects were easily traced through the transparent veil thrown over them. Mr. B. declared that in joining the Democracy he did not ohange his principles, but only his party name, and ho expressed the fullest confidence in a complete triumph over sectionalism. The debate on that bill was further con tinued in short speeches by Messrs. Cass, Sew ard. Hale, Clay, and Douglas. Mr Brown then introduced a joint resolu tion authorizing the Commissioner of Public Buildings to contract for watering Pennsyl vania avenue; which was passed. A committee of conference was appointed on the disagreeing votes cf the two houses upon the Bounty Land bill, ere they adjourned ovor until Monday noxt. In the House, a large number of privato bills, roported from the Committeo of thi W hole, were passed; and then they aljouined over until Mouday next. Political Items Tho Pittsylvania district of Virginia met in Danville on Wednesday last, and elected Wm. H. Clarke, esq , of Halifax, and Wm. B. Ihompson, esq , of Franklin, delegates to the Cincinnati Convention, and James M Dillard esq., of Henry, and Walter Coles, jr., esq ! of Pittsylvania, alternates. The convention did not adopt any resolutions instructing the delegates how to vote. The Know Nothing Split Convention, the offshoot from the Philadelphia gathering, will >e held in New York on Thursday, June 12 The ooll is signed by representatives from twenty States nnd territories. The Conven tion will nominate candidates for President and Vice President, and the Free State Know Nothings are earnestly requested to be present by Delegates. The colored Know Nothings of Ohio, a few uays since, called a State Convention, to be held at Columbus, on the 29th of May. Their white brethren, not to bo outdone in patriotic labors, have called theirs for the 27th of May two days in advance. Gen. James \cll, an old Jackson Democrat, is spoken of as the probable Know Nothing candidate for Governor of Arkansas. A New York correspondent of the Rochester Advertiser says : You may expect some stir r'?g political news in a few days George Law mi ia th? Amorican candidate. Fillmore will decline the nomination of the party given to him at Philadelphia. He will decline be cau-o he is not an "Amorican," in the party sense in which that word is now used by the Know Nothings Information has been re ceived from Mr. Fillmore, within a few days, to that cffect. He will give his reasons for not being one of the dark lantern party An election was held in Boston on the 28th ult for Register of Deeds, which resulted as tollows : For Henry Alline. opposition. 3,295; ror James Rice, Fillmore K. N. 1 01H Ma jority against K N. 2 277. The St. Louis Republican, of the 27th ult. says : No despatch, so far as we can learn, ba^ been received in this city from Col. Ben ton, signifying his determination in regard to the position given to him on the ticket put forward by the Price Convention. According .J,e telegraphic despatches this morning, he will decline to run for Governor, but the au thority does not seem to be altogether reliable. Col. John Charles Fremont is not a Catholic n-jr a slaveholder, but is a member of the rrotestnnt Episcopal church, and is 44 intense ly opposed to tho further extension of slave ry. So says C C. Chaffoo, member of Con gress from tho Tenth district of Massachusetts From Hatti.?By late arrivals from Port au Frince, it appears that the Emporor in en gaging in the late contest depended too much on the interested representations of disaffected omioicaiM ; but, although defeated, he was not disposed to listen to dictation from a for* e'S[*.Power as to his future action in the affairs ot nis government. It wassuspected that the interest shown by the English and French of ficials towards Faustin I. proceeded solely from jealousy of the progress and influence of the I nited States both in the Congress and abinet. Ihe Dominican authorities had ratified a treaty with the United States It is identical with the one negotiated by General Lazeneau. President Mota had proclaimed death to all outlaws or filibusters landing on the island. 6 Blind Preachers ?The Rev Dr. Spring nag. in consequenoe of his protracted applica tion to books and writing, failed in his eve sight. The Rev. Dr. Barnes, of Philadelphia, can see but very imperfectly ; yet he manages to do considerable writing. The Rev. Mr Muburn, the blind preacher and lecturer whose eloquence has delighted so many in vh nous parts of the land, is publishing a work entitled 'Axes, Rifles, and Saddlebags " The K?t. Dr. Wackbridge, of Spencertown, N. ?? has been blind from the commence ment of his ministry,Jis said to be engaged at present in preparing reeollections of his own limes. Abroad.?The Boston Journal says . During the late war in Europe large sums of money were sent to this country by sev eral houses abroad, to bo invested in the Lnited States ; and, from what our informant has learned upon tho subject, it appears that tho agents of those houses in this city have advised their principals to continue their in vestments among us, on account of the amnio interest and security to be had for wLn funds in this part of the country." fore,t>n EF'On Saturday, an individual dressed in genteel suit of black, with all the IdjunCu g?nt,.eman' ?X06Pting that he was hatless and shoe ess, appeared in Broadway, New York, and promenaded the street with a verv sedate demeanor.
