Tho InttlhztnctT coutains no editorial to day. The Union show* that the anti-Nebraaka biil political leaders and press are reaponaible far the recent aaaaaaination of Sheriff Jone? WASHINGTON lfEWS AND GOSSIP Omrtelf.?We take the followirg paragraph from the Washington Organ, newspaper, of yesterday. AasarLT ?Tha editor of the junior organ of the administration was severely caned by Major Heiss, late of the aenior organ, yester day afternoon, in front of Willatd's Hotel Wo did n*>t learn the cacse of the attack. Wa have to say that this statement is wholly deatitnte of foundation in trnth The truth is as follow*, vi* : On going into Willard s to dinner oa Thursday afternoon and passing iu front of tho office, we were overtaken by John P. Heiss, who has recent ly returned from Nicaragua, (coming with the Padre Vigel accerding to the newspapers.) Aa he wa* passing us we gave him n friendly salutation as u?ual, having been up to that moment on as friendly relations with him as with any man living, as far as we had any knowledge of his sentiments from his course towards us or otherwise. His reply to our salu tation was an oath and a denuncation, follow ed by a blow on the head from a heavy blud geon which felled us to the ground. By standers immediately rushed in, and tho Hon. Mr. 8pinner of New York, seised him by the arms behind, holding him thus, irtiilo others, we know not whom, raised us up, covered with blood from the blow. To have properly retaliated even such a blow from a powerful man given under suoh circumstances, he being id the hands of those who bad interfered, would have deprived u? of the plea of solf defenoe, and subjected us to the charge of manslaughter, a position in which we were not disposed to placo oureelf. On leaving the hotel, after cleansing the blood from our person and dining, we wore met by Officer Boss, who informed us that on going to the hotel shortly after this occurrence, he was met by the assailant, who remarked to him that he supposed be (the officer) ires looking for bim; and that be answered that he (Hies?) bad probably better go with hiir. They proceeded immediately to the office of Justice Stevens, where J. P. Heiss gave bonds to answer at the Criminal Court for this act. On that act wo do not choose to make a com ment, leaving the reader to judge of it from the facts we state above, and leaving the very appropriate tribunal before which it so prompt ly found its way without our agency, to deal with it according to its judgment on its deserts. The Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Col Manypenny, the Hon Mr. Spinner, and other gentlemen saw ail that passed, ar.d we refer to them as witnesses that we here only state the simple truth concerning the affair. We hear that we were thus aseaile l for the publication of the following article, which ap peared in the Star of the day before yeater. day: " Thk Paprb Vigil.?We are not a little amused at the puffy notices of this gentleman with which the filibustering press just now are filled. There seems to Tie no end to the wonderful stories concerning him the newspa pers are manufacturing, the most amusing of which is, thit he claims to be an Amerie in, rather than a Human Catholic priest; or, in other words, that he scouts the direip ino of the only Catholic Church known ai the Catho lic Church in Christendom?that is, the "Ro man Catholic Church ' Without pretending to er.tcr into a disquisition upon its claims to he the only real Cat ft a/t c Church, the intelli gent and well informed reader will bear us out in saying that the priest who denies the binding force of its discipline is always de prived qniekly ?l tho functions of its ministry. " The Padre \ igel. at home, was mixed up with the revolutionary party, and became one of the few native partisans rf the filibusters; going to the length of inviting the perform ance of Protestant service in the church in Granada under his pastoral charge. Hr.d there been any thing like ecclcsiastical authority in exiatence in Nicaragua during Walkers rule, of course the Padre Vigel would have been deposed from bis living as summarily as an Episcopalian minister auion; us would be deposed for offering his pulpit to a Methodut, or a Baptist preacher for offering his to a Uni tarian or Universal ist 8<> he is, in the eyes of all true Roman Catholics of every country, no longer entitled to administer the functions of their priesthood. In this country, while the Catholics acknowledge no political supre macy in Rome, they all lo- k to R^me, and only to Rome. ft r their church dfcipline, as well <?s their d-ctrine ; und not a mm; of them tan regnr 1 tho Pairc Yicel as being aught, ecclesiastically. than an unfrocked priest We may truthfully add, that the stories told in tho pro-filliburteriLg newspapers of the great irjfluerce of this gentleman at home, his re markable talents, ?%c , arc on a par with the bogus account* of his present position in the church. He may be a very worthy mau per sonally, for aught we know ; but we are very sure that up to the time he permitted his hatrod for his Uoserninent to load bim to unfrock himself, be wat quite as obscure as any other pactor in the city of Granada All the fuss heieg made over him, personally, in the news papers is therefore mere bumbaggerr. M of a piece" with the accounts of the condition of thiDgs iu Nicaragua which are transmitted from thence to aid the waning causo of the fi Hi busters ' In conclusion, we have only to remark fur ther, that habitual mis-statements of the per local affairs of parties opposed to it in politics, so groeely and maliciously false as this, (that makes it our duty to oursclf to allude to the affair in the Star) is one of the prime oau?es why the Washington Organ fails to enjoy the confidence, respect and patronage of its politi cal friends in this community; who preferring a manly opponent to a nominal friend so sneak ii g and disreputable in its practices, putror.iza the Star io iu stead; until its (the Organ's) ad >ertiaing business has fallen away to nothing, and its circulation has so dwindled down, that according to a notiee in iu issue of yesterday, iu agents in Washington are throwing up the management of their routes in disguBt, a, business that w?n t pay f?r the shoe leather worn out m iu prosecution. Mr. Haven's LettfT ?Che letter from Mr. Haven, of the House of Representatives, iust published, annourdog that Mr. Pillmore will accept the Know Nothing nomination, beyond p?radrenture. and that he may be expected house in the c< urse of the next month?June ? is received with a bad grace by the Republi cans of both Housea of C-jugress. The latter bad hoped, up to this time, that Mr. Fillmore would decline, and bavo encouraged the pub lication in their party newspapers of all con ceivable discouraging statemenU and prog, nostications designed to etnrtte Mr F. off the coutae. Their purpose was to have matters so axtan^d as that there would be hut * sin- J gle oppositiun candidate fur the Presidency running in the non slaveholding States. All their expectations of carrying the day (and At best they hare been exceedingly slight) have hinged uj,nn tliat h <ne Thus, according to the N?*w York Trilume, they must carry Iowa, Mchigan Missouri, New Jersey, In diana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Delaware and one *r I wo other States they have professed tp consider doubtful, or nearly all of thorn?and, of course, New York, Ohio, and Connecticut! to give them tho slightest chanco of success. With Mr Fillmore in the field, they realise that they have hardly a single chance in a thousand, to carry either of the States we n?Tse above. Hence the earnestness of their efforts to coax (as Paddy coaxes at timea) Mr. I Fillmore to decline, and their chagrin and mortification on finding, through this letter of his acknowledged and able exponent on the floor of the House, that he will not shape his courso to gratify them especially. As matters now stand with them Col Fremont, bids fair to have no opponent for their nomination ; as no nan who believes be has a political future before him, will be induced to place himself in a position in which he will be so very badly beaten, as it is admitted their nominee must be. With the Colonel their nomination is an object, doubtlefa, even when it is certain that hia ticket will fare only as well as the Van Bu*sn and Chas. Francis Adams ticket did in 1848 If he receives a ainglo hundred thou sand votas he will obtain a political position far in advance of anything that was drenm ed of *br him six months ago. So, to bo their candidate will be no losing game for him; for since hia affiliation with tho abolitionists be came known to the public ho has utterly lost (politically) the regard of every man not of that party, because with his personal antece dents, such a chango in his politics can only be attributed by them to a sort of political stroke of the mocn. The KicaraguanQue?tion.-The Richmond Enquirer, on the day before yesterday, die cusses the question of the recognition of the rule of the fillibust^r Walker, in Nega, as the government of Nicaragua, in an article of great ability and convincing force. Its view? correspond so entirely with our own that we heartily endorse tfcem, quoting from them as follows: " The foreign policy of this Administration has been distinguished by a respectful ob servance of the faith of treaties and the ob ligations of public law. Prompt and enerjretic in protecting the dignity of the country and the rights of the American citizens, the (rcv ernment has yet afforded no pretext of . fteneo to other powers. Oa the contrary, by a happy combination of vigor and eonservatism it has commanded the respect of foreign nations, as well as the almost unanimous applause of the American people. Unless then we aro to as sume that tho Administration will "abandon the policy to which it has so persistently ab hored, and deliberately forfait its conservative character, wo must reject the idea that the r resident proposes to accept W.nlker's over tures of alliance. It has not been many months since Mr. Marcy refused to receive the commission of another Nicaraguan agent, for reasons of an exclusively public import. Nothing has oocurred meanwhile to reinforce \\ alker s claim to the recognition of the Ameri can government. Indeed, his ascendancy is ltss seeure, and hia ohancea of ultimate suc cess far le.i3 flattering than when he was first repulsed from Washington. It is questionable if, under tho law of na tions, the l ofted States would be justified in reeognumg Walker'a Government. Hia ex pedition against Nicaragua was undeniably an aggressive invasion of a country at r.caeo with this government It is affirmed, in mit igation ol the outrage, that ho timply re aponded to a cry for a succor from the people of Nicaragua; but there is no proof of the allegation The Nicaraguan (ioverment was not a despotism; on the contrary, it wa? no toriously the most liberal of all the Central American Powers. It was a Republic, and waa even more Democratic in its constitution thani the Government of the United States JI all tho Central American States it wa< the one to which tho United States woro clofest bound by similarity of institutions ai d the positive engagements of treaty It may bo truo that Walker was iuvited to Nicanazua by the party out of power, who wanted his assistance in usurping control of tho Uovern nient; but such a fact would no nioro cxteu u;'te the criminality of his expedition, than it would justify an invasion of Canada from tkis country at the instance of a malcontent and seditious minority." An Important Decision.?We publish bo b>w a very important ruling by tho proper officer of the Treasury Department, which, if duly carried out, will create a considerable saving to the National Treasury : Travilixg Exraasas or Aaiir Officers. 1 he commutation for travel under orders, al lowed to army officers, is not prescribed by 18 m tUe "*** 1jy the act of March ?5, lS.,o ) \ m ,s a matter of Executive regula tion. In ccrta'n specified casos the officer mrsy reciive thn commutation, or tho actual expenses at his option , but it is held th Jt neither the accounting officers, nor heads of departments, have any authority to mak? an allowance for travel at an emolument. It is only upon the theory that the cemmutation is a ready mode of reaching tie probable actual e rpsnsa, that it is legal; for as an emolument it wuld be in direct violation of the lawa of March 3. 1830, and August 23, 1842, by in creasing the compensation of the officer be yond the amount authorised by Congross. When, therefore, the actual cxpenso has been ascertained, and an account settled in confor mity therewith, such settlement must stand and cannot be disturbed for the purpose of making a larger allowance under a commuta tion or hypothetical amount of expenses Nor can an adjusted account for travel bo re opened upon tho pretext of an undcr-estimato of the distance traveled, unless the claimant ahows that the sum b-s received was leas than his actual necessary expenses. Sulphuric Acid Barometer ?Among the objects of scientific interest accumulating at the Smithsonian Institution is a gigantic bar ometer, in which the varying pressure of the air is indicated by a column of sulphuric acid, inatead of one of mercury as in the ordinary lnatrument. The mean elevation of the mer curial column is about thirty inches, while in this instrument it ia upwards of two hundred and twenty inches. Hence the range ia p? portionally greater, and more minute fluctua tions are gendered perceptible. Sulphuric acid baa been choaen as the liquid, because, at ordinary temperatures, it does not give tff vapor, which would fill the vacuum above or absorb air. Meana aro taken to prevent the absorption of moisture. Tho instrument was constructed by James Green, of New York, tinder the direction of the Inatitution. Il is enclosed in a glazed case, and is placed in the northeast staircase of the main building.

And then they adjourned until Monday. In the House, Mr. Phelps ooncluded his speoch in favor of the appointment of a third conference cocunitteo upon the disagreeing votes of the two Houses upon the Senate's amendments to the Deficiency bill ; and then, after speeches from Mr Davis of Ma ryland, and Washburne of Maine, also for the appointment of the committee, the House adhered to their disagreement, and voted the Conference Committee. The Speaker appointed Messrs Pennington, Jones of Tennessee, and Grow, on said com mittee. The resolution from tho Elections Commit tee authoriiing the parties to the contcst for the seat of the Delegate from New Mexico to appear before tho House in penon or by coun sel? On motion of Mr.^Carlilo tho resolution was amended by striking out the authority (there in) to appear before the House " by oounsel," and then, as thus amended, it was rejected? yeas 8ft, nays 62. Mr. Stephens moved to reconsider that vote, and addressed the House in favor of that vote. And then, without putting the question, (af ter an ineffectual motion to adjourn over un til Monday,) they adjourned. Proceedings of To-Day. In the House, to-day, up to tho hour at which we went to press, no business whatever had been transacted, tho hour having beon taken up with voting on motions for a call of tho Houdo, and to adjourn.
