The Union publishes extracts from varioue newspaper acccunts of tbe condition of affairs in Kapsas, with running commentaries. The editor taken the same riew of them expressed yesterday io the Star. It is very clear now that the great majority of the people of the Territory, whether for or against the legalixa tion of slavery in their State constitution when admitted into the Union, have combined to aid the authorities to compel the abolitionist* sent oat by the Emigrant Aid Society to obey the laws ; and that all the men among them who bare been conspicuous as leaders of the Lawrence faction, ran away when it became certain that the i fficers of the law hare power to enforce it. No Missourians .ire involved in the existing troubles there ; the actors being eitixensof tho Territory only. The Intelligencer is to day devoted to news literature, Ac. WASHINGTON WKWB AMD GOSSIP The Result, to far.?If ever men were cursed by the interference of their friends in their behalf, it is in the case of the Aboli tionists of Kansas. The howiings of the New York Tribune, the squealing! of the I?ew York Timss, and the acreechings of the thou sand othor Abolition presses, and the shriek ings of the thousand Abolition orators for men, arms, money, and sympathy, has resulted in getting them simply into the position of avowed rebels utterly incapable of defending them selves against the offioers of the law. When last heard from, Lawrence contained but a third of its population at this period last year, all haying abandoned it but the loafer* and madmen. Little was to be had in it, for love or money, but shocking bad whisky, which ?old very high, and Sharpe's rifle-, for sale at one-fourth the cost of manufacturing them The leaders of those in rebellion had vamosed, believing discretion to be, by long odds, the better part of valor. All know what extraor dinary exertions have been made by the Abo litionists, every where, to insure the erection of an ultra abolition State on the border of the slavebolding State of Missouri, though all may not knew that the bubble has fairly burst?that the means used to accomplish that end are apparently about to make it cer tain that Kansas will conclude to adopt slaveiy through disgust at the character of free State populations, as exemplified by the Abolition ists who have been precipitated upon them by the emigrant aid societies. Had Kansas been left to natural settlement it would have re jected slavery, beyond all question. But the work has been overdone. The hands of a'?* rational ani orderly men from tbe North who have emigrated upon their own means, are being turned against the Free State oause, from being only turned not long sincc against the Abolition 4?magogue leaders with whom the Territory has been cursed. The freemen of the non-slavoholding States of Iowa and Illinois, both within a stone's throw ot Kansas, appreciating the true state of affairs in the Territory, do not lift a finger to the rcscue of the cause of abolitionism; be cause they comprehend clearly that its tri umph there will be as unfortunate for their section of the Union as that of the Mormonism would have been, among themselves, had they not driven it away, neck and beeli, not long since, by foree of arms. But wherever abo litioaUm prevails in the old States so as to be able to set up its views of the fitness of things above the law, no man whose legal rights are in the way of its purposes is able to maintain them. It robs slaveholders with impunity, shoots them down if essaying to vindicate their rights, and protects the instruments of its murders in such cases above, beyond, or around the reach of the law's arm. Wherever it is in the arsendant in tbe States, it is simply an unmitigated curse, blasting the happiness and true moral and worldly prosperity of the communities suffering under its influence. In Kansas it has almost worked its own cure al ready. No ethers rejoice more over tbe fact that is fo fast cutting its own throat in Kansas, than tbe non-slaveholders of Iowa and Illinois who look calmly on, while New England and interior New York are in agonies over tbe sqnolohing up of the Kantas schemes and plots of Messrs. G reeley, Henry Ward Beecher, el al Our " Angel Gabriel."?The Rev. F. S. Evans is just now taking the shine off his dis tinguished political prototype, the original Angel Gabriel. We congratulate our amiable and reverend fellow citixen upon the aptitude be displays for excelling in the school of ora tory introduced into this country but a few years since by that distinguished Know Noth ing orator from Demcrara, Mr. Orr. In a speech at the Navy Yard a few nights oinee, we bear, --ur indigenous Angel Gabriel was as extravagant, inflama'.cry, and as abusive as his distinguished prototype ever was after one oi bis never-to-be-forgotten truupet flourishes. He is said to have been funny withal; having delared that if he were not a man of peaco and a man of God (quisical notions those, aint they, for him to entertain, reader?) he would take a sword and cut off Dr Magru der's ears close to his head; the Doctor's rffence being an oratorical identification of the reverend brother with Washington Nailor, as politicians ef the same school. We hear that be charged Dr. Magruder with having perjured himself six times, and called on Dr. Busey to prove the fact, but the latter would r.ot respond to the eall. He also is said to have talked ferociously about " piling dead bodies mountains high" in the Know Nothing cause and exceedingly piously (if ludicrously in consistent with hi. furious fighting, biting and scratching demonstrations made just be fore) of his services and sufferings in the cause of the Saviour of man, which, to jut!* , fr*m the tone of his amiable argument de pends, the world over, upon the unanimity and seal with which the Methodists of Wash ington may rally at the polls on Monday next to vindicate the entire godliness not only of his walk in life as a christian minister, but as a politician?such being tbe substance of his in7ocation, said to have been directly ad dressed to them Our informant assures us that in the whole e< urse of his political ex perience be nerer heard more slang and foul mouthed abuse from the lips of the most viru lent broken down politioal hack than was ut tered on that occasion by the reverend brother. The truth is, the reverend brother must be ia love with the distinguished oratorical ^p,.. Ration earned by The Great Original in tfcif country, and ambitious of himself becoming tkt North Antriem Angel Gabriel. to the Cincinnati Convention continue to crowd in upon us by each sue oeediog railroad and steamboat arrival. The leading public houses of Washington are crowded with them Judging from what we bear among them, President Pierce has a fair prospect for his re-nomination It is now comprehended by all of them that the ap proaching contest is to be fought fairly and squarely upon the principles and measures of bis administration, one and all. licre and there, we find oao or two who would nominate to shirk the i3sue ; and, of course, such gen tlemen are opposed to his re-nomination. Those who condemn the Nebraska bill, are advocates of Mr. Buchanan's nomination, upon the ground that he will receive a large portion of the anti-Nebraska vote of the North. Their effort* in his behaif, on such grounds, only weaken his prospects, serving to close up the ranks of the friends of tho Ne braaka bill in favor of the re-nomination of | the present incumbent- It girts us great joy to find such unanimity in favor of securing to the future of the country the legitimate fruits of the bold and unflnching Democratic policy of the present Administration as wo discover among the delegates now here. High-handed Proceedings ?It will be rcc ollected that Mr. F. Jefferson, a member of the Council Board of this oity from the Second Ward, some timo since caused the publication of his minority report from the special com mittee to inquire into the alleged violation of the law involved in the fact that Mr. T. E. Lloyd holds the office of clerk to tho Commis. sioners of the Asylum while serving as a Coun cilman from the Seventh Ward?the report of the majority of the sa'd special committee, justifying Mr. L. in holding the olerkship, having previously been published. Last nigKt the Know Nothing majority of the Council Board passed a vote of censure on Mr. Jefferson for spreading his minority re port, above referred to, before the public of Washington. We need hardly say that this unauthorised and foolish vote of censure is equivalent to a declaration on the part of those voting for it that their purpose is, as far as possible, to manage our corporation affairs hereafter as though the Washington Councils are mere Know Nothing lodges, with all the members thereof sworn, under pains and pen alties, to adopt the ritual of the order for their guidance as public functionaries, rather than the Corporation chartcr and the laws of the land. The minority (anti-Know Nothiugs) of the Board, upon the adoption of the vote of cen sure, promptly asked leave to place on record the protest that will be fouad below; which privilege was refused. It is as follows : Protbst.?Forasmuch as the papers in re gard to a member of this Board holding the Secretaryship of the Washington Asylum were reported to tue Board and were a part of its public records when published ; as tbey were each and ail official papers, written by officers of this Corporation, on a subject of public concern, in obedience to the mandate of the Board ; as they were no longer in possession of tho Committee, but pail of them bad been read in public meeting and the contents of the whole of them publicly stated ; as no in junction of secresy bad been placed upou them, and no prohibition of their publication made; as their publication was useful to tho Eublic and hurtiul to no one who had right on is side ; as none of them were suppressed, and theiefore the publication was not one aided ; as the Chartcr declares of the two Boards that " their deliberations shall bo pub lic;'' as the two cages cited as precedents arc not parallel to this, because the report ad duced in one cate was published before the Committee had reported, and that in the other after the Board bad refused by direct vote to consent to its publication ; as no sufficient par liamentary rule has beon presented to show that any wrong has been done; as thero is no restriction to tbe publication of such papers, under the circumstances of the present case, recognised by any legislative body under any free government; and as the withholding the right to publish them is an attack on the liberty of tho prcsa and would lead to the general concealment of flagrant violations of law. Therefore tbe undersigned solemnly protest against the resolution parsed, as unjust and unprecedented, and as an invasion of tbeir rights as members of this Board. Ferd Jefkerson, William Ormk.

The Hard?.?A pamphlet reviewing tbo history of the Democratic party of New York, for somo years past, was laid on the tables of all the members of Congress yosterday. It is of great present interest to the large oon coursc of Democratic politicians now in Wash ington. It proves up tho ftct that the Hards are now little more than Know Nothings in disguise, saying: '? Among tho first individuals to join the Know Nothings in the State of New York, was Mr. Minor C Story, the notorious Adamautine conspirator, whose name has been mentioned, as having largely contributed to the treachery and deception, of the 13th September, 1853. This gentleman was a noisy supporter of the claims of George Law, at the Philadelphia Convention. "Ira P. Barnes, of Chonango, the first chairman of the Ilards after their secession, has also held conspicuous office in a Know Nothing lodge. 44 Besides these two gentlemen, the follow ing, and perhaps more?at least twenty-tiro out of tweut^-mne who seceded from Syra cuse in 1853. have taken degrees in the Know Nothing Order. *' DinidlD Campbell, of Schenectady, Vice President; Robert 11. Shackland, Cattarau gus, V. P . founder of the Otsego County 4 Ex aminer,' Know Nothing, and editor of the American Union, Know Nothing paper, in Cat taraugus ; Pliny M. Bromley, of Monroe, Sec retary ; John 3. Nafew, Albany, (member of the order of United Americans); Stephen Clarke, contesting delegate, Albany, elected State Treasurer on the Know Nothing ticket of 1855; Wm. Eggltston, Albany, contesting delegato, new superintendent of the first sec tion of the Erie canal, appointed by the Fill more Canal Board; BenjaminF. Chamberlain, Cattaraugus ; Addison D.

Graves, Orleans; J. R Pratt, On tario ; Tobias Bouck, Schoharie ; A D Wait, Washington ; David Barret, do.; Sam'l Stover, Rennsalear, K N. orator; Charles J Wilbur, Kennsalear, delegate in 1856 to Know Nothing National Convention at Philadelphia, which nomiaated Fillmore and Donelaon, and a sup porter thereof. 44 This appalling statement has been repeat edly published iu the New York State papers. U abundantly proves what the character was ?Tlmnn who ere*ted the Hard schism. o? tt.p iStttSE. ?rJ" 8. Bowd. tlriatf, I j n* J U ono of th?M Uii al ternate, L. J.

Wendell, alternate from the Albany diat"?*> is of the same stamp John S. NU|f. w other alternate from that district, is a mem ber cf the order of the United Americans, the parent society of the Know Nothings. H. Goldick of the 31st district, and his alternate, H v Hewei are both members of the Order. (J P Pelton,' alternate from tbe 12th district, was "delegate from Poughkeepsie, on the 18th of September, 1855. to a Know Nothing Con vention of tha 2d Judicial District, and, on the 26th October of the samo year, a delegate to the Know Nothing County Convention at Peekskill. He was, that fall a delegato to threo Know Nothing Conventions i?nd two Hard Shell Conventions. Charles Gray, of of the 17th district, is a member of the Order. Orvillo Clarke, of the 15th district, was tbo Know Nothing candidate for Congress, in 1854 W. Williams, of the 32d district is also a mem ber of the Ordor, as indeed have been, or now nre, many other delegates claiming admission to tbe Convention. '? Before the nomination of Fillmore and Donclson by the Know Nothing National Con vention, it was believed that thero was a chance for the selection of a very prominent 'Hard' by that body, for one or the other of the highest offices. That hope has now been disappointed; and the motive for conciliating the Know Nothing organization, by giving prominence and a Democratic conntenauoo to its leading men, and by the support of its candidates, is said to hare ceascd. The dele gated who seek admission into the Convention, may, therefore, disavow any present connect ion'with the Order, but they cannot deny their Kast affiliation with it; nor that, if rejected y a Democratic Convention, they have the full right to take their places, and continue unbroken communion with the American Party. " In the State election of 1S54, the Hards were so divided by men who professed to be Democrat?, while secretly belonging to'the secret society, that the Know Nothing influence prevailed. The Hard ticket contained the names of two Know Nothings of the third de gree?t e. Clark Burnhaw for Canal Commis sioner, and Abram Vcrnain, for State Prison Inspector. Nevertheless, the Know Nothing Hards split their ticket, refused to vote for IJronson for Governor, and cast their suffrages f.>r Ullman. Tbo result showed the extent of .be amalgamation of this section with tbe Know Nothing party, and its consequent dis organisation : Prxk-katic. Whiii.

Mr. Editor: There seems to be quite a difference of Opinion amongst the Democratic party as to who shall receive the nomination for the next Presidency at the Cincinnati Convention, which is to meet in June next. My ideas of public duty do not permit me t > indulge in personal predilections on a ques tion of such national importanoo, and I trust and hope that the Cincinnati Convention will l>ok alone to the maintenance of the great principles o[ the Democratic parly, which are those of the Constitution itself, and not to in dividual candidates Personal preferences or sectional jealousies should nut be permitted to have anything to do with a matter cf such magnitude. Not at all. Tboy should be sac rificed upon the altar of public good. That there are many distinguished leaders of the Democratic party who are worthy of the nomi nation, and eminently qualified to fill the high office of Presideut, every Democrat will, I ap prehend, readily admit. I am one of those, how ever, who prefnr principles rather than in dividuals. I bad infinitely rather be de feated with a candidate who is known to be true to the Nebraska and Kansas act, and tbe Issues growing out of it, than successful with on* who is doubtful, because that a<it is in accordance with the Constitution, recognizes the rights and equality of all the States?does justice to all ?injury to ncne. If the North intends to deprive the South of her Constitu tional rights simply bccause she has a majori ty in tho National Legislature and the will to do so, it is time that tbe South should know it. Now is the time to meet that question and bave it definitely settled, and 1 know of no better way to do so than by re nominating the presentdistinguished Chief Magistrate, Frank lin Pierce. He has administered the Gov ernment according to the principles of the Democratic party that elected him and the Constitution, and in thus doing ho has ex hibited a degree of justice, firmness, ability, and integrity, which shows that there was wisdom in his nomination, and the fidelity with which he has discharged his duty in re gard to tbe Kansas question, proves conclu sively, ia my humole judgment, that he should, as a matter of principle and as a re ward for the faithful discharge of bis high duties, be again selected as the leader and standard-bearer of tbe great Democratic party in the next Presidential contest. If tbo South is true to herself, her interests, and her constitutional rights, she will stand fiim, and voto for no other candidate but Franklin Pierce at the Cincinnati Conrcntio: If the South abandon Mr. Pierce after the noble, rational, and fearless manner be has discharged his constitutional duties, no North ern man can, will, or ought, hereafter, stand up for her constitutional rights, and her de struction will soon be accomplished, and she will be accessory to it Now is the time to have the issues growing out of the Kansas question settled. If tho South is to be de prived of her rights under tho constitution, she ought to know it, and " provide new guards for her future security." Washington, D C. Virginia. Ill? Enlistment Embroglio ?

For our part we look for that event to take place, as matters now stand, not long hence.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, Mr Pugb concluded his spaech in favor of tha Kansas State government bill reported by Senator Douglas. Mr. Wade having next obtained the floor on that bill, they adjourned. In the House, Mr. Ball's resolution of in quiry for detailed information oonoerning the manner in which the construction of the va rious public buildings now being built in Waahiaptoa la aia paged, was agreed to. Mr. Kally obtained leave to print, as part of | the proceedings of the day, a speech upon general politics. Mr. Stephens presented the argument, in English, of Mr. Qallegos, the sitting delegate from New Mexico (who does not speak the English language) in the New Mexioan con tested election case, which, with any replj thereto Mr. Otero, the contestant, might make, was ordered to be printed. Tile bill to expedite the issuing of California land bills was then taken np, and after a few remarks bj Mr Denver for its postponement until this day (Tuesday) two weeks, and alto a few remarks from Mr. Herbert against that motion, it was agreed to. After the transaction of some other business they adjourned. rrieiidiifs ef Te-Day In the Senate, to-day, Mr. Slidell, rising to a personal explanation, denied the accuracy of the testimony of Mr Sumner before the spe oial committee, as published in the Baltimore Sun of this morning, relative to tbe fracas that took place a few days since in tbe Senate oharaber. Mr. Douglas also made a personal explana tion, wherein he, too, denied the correctness of the statement made by Mr. Sumner with ref erence to himself, as connected with the fraeaa above mentioned. Mr. Toombs also did the same, and took oc cas on to add that when the affair occurred, he felt no other sentiment with reference to it than that Mr. Sumner received just what he deserved, and nothing more. Mr. Butler addressed tho Senate in a few remark?, wherein he stated that Mr. Sumner, in saying that his (Mr Butler's) personal re marks had called for the language that Mr. S. had used towards him personally, had com mitted a mistake lie challenged a reference to the record to prove that he nad long since ceased to recognize Mr. S. in debate, or to al lude in any way to anything the Senator (Mr. S ) said or did. Mr. Wade denounced the declaration of Mr. Toombs lie declared that, on tbe doctrine of Mr. T., it would bo necessary for his side to come into the Senate chamber armed, and, though but a small number, to vindicate tbe r.ght of free speech there by force of arms, Mr Wilson explained that his colleague s testimony might bo wrong in unimportant par ticulars on account of the confusion of his sit uation in the uff.iir; and thus accountcd fcr his mistakes, to which Messrs. Slidell, Doug las, and Toombs had alluded. In tho course of his remarks he took occa sion to denounce the assault made by Mr. Brooks on Senator Sumner as base, outra geous and cowardly. When he uttered that last word Mr. Butler said,44 You are a liar."

Great excitement here occurred for a mo ment; when Mr- Stuart called to order, and argued that all tbe current proceedings were out of order. Mr. Butler then apologised to the Senate fur using tbe words that had last escaped him. After a few further remarks from Messrs Wils?c and Foster, the hour for the special order arrived; and the Central Amerioan question with Britain was taken up. In the Home, Mr. Walbridge reported back from the Public Lands Committee the bill granting lands to Michigan in aid of the con struction of oertain railroads in that State, with a substitute therefor. Moving to put it on its passage, he addressed tho House in explanation of its provisions, and called the previous question on its third read ing Mr. Jones, of Tennefsee, and Mr. Craige, urged him to withdraw the call, in order that the opponents of such legislation as the bill proposed, might be beard; but Mr. W. de clining, the House seconded the call for tbe previous question?ayes 74, noes 55. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee moved to recon sider that vote. PERSONAL. .... Hon. Rufus Choate and son, of Massa chusetts, are at Willards' hotel. .... Gov. Bradbury, A. B. Chase, and A S.
