EVENING STAR W A 8HIW0T0K CIT T : FRIDAY May SO, 1N?. HIT Advertleeinesita should be handed In by W o'eloek, m , otherwise they may not appear until the nasi day. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The leader of the Union is upon Mr Cramp ton i dismissal and Mr. Marcy'a reply to Lord Clarendon, and closes as follows: " The whole case is presented by Mr. Marcy in a style at once dignified, pacific, and for cible, whilst the argument is ao elearly and logically trade that it admits of no answer. Aa the cafe now stands, we hare only to re peat a remark made some days ago : that the gronnds on which Mr. Crampton a dismissal ia placed, furnish no reaaonable cause to ap {>rehend any ii.terrnption of the amicable re ationa between tbe two governments ; and we cannot bat indulge the oxpcctation that when Mr. Marcy'a reply reachea London, the Bntiah cabinet will promptly acqaieace in the coarae of our government, aa the only one conaistent with onr national self-reapect. It will be seen clearly that our government haa much additional evidence fully auataining tbe guilt of the accused partiea, and that re cent developments furnish further reaaons why our government cannot conaent longer to bold diplomatic intercourse with him " The Union in an article headed, " Th? I nion and harmony of the Democratic party,'' aay>: " Ami ! the aolicitude ao generally felt in regard to the action of the Cincinnati Conven tion, it is gratifying t<> observe that it is entire ly free from that embittered feeling produced by conflicting views and sentiments and per sonal preference, overriding good sense, good temper, and party obligations, and pushed to the offensive length of ezclusiveness. The platform of resolutions adopted by our friends in all the States, while embracing the aaine cardinal principles of the Democratic faith, have also recognised the wisdom and patriot ism of the great measures inaugurated by a Demooratio administration, sanctioned by a Democratic Congress, and which will soon be gloriously ratified by a grateful people " The Intelligencer in discussing the onlist ment question, expresses its regret at? " The extreme issue to which the Executive haa brought thia protracted oontroversy bv thus definitively dismissing the British Minis ter and revoking the exequatur* ef Consuls Barclay, Mathew. and Rowcroft, who are al leged to have been implicated in a violation of our neutrality laws; for while, from the disclosures which had already transpired rela tive to the determination of the President to persist in his extreme demand, notwithstand ing the conciliatory assurances and ample apologies contained in Lord Clarendon's last despatch, we are not surprised by the an nouncement of the final step which ho haa taken in this diplomatic squabble, yet candor J tbe le**t0 Confea* our r?*"t that the President a convictions of public dutv have exacted at his hands a requisition ao un gracious, and which, as we are constrained to tnink, was not demanded by the nature of the unintentional offence committed, and. least of u ' n ? f. repeated disclaimers by which fo"if? Government has sought to atone The IntelligtHttr thinks, however, that we have ? no reason to fear that any disturbance of the peace, now so happily subsisting be tween the two countries, will result from this 4 inexorable policy' of the Executive Its ten. dency to alienate the sympathies and to chill I the cordial good feeling which should always be cherished by both countries alike is what I we chiefly deprecate in the present aspect of I the case." rtr'ASHIRGTOR IVXW8 AND GOSSIP J Know nothing MitruU? the Remedy ? I We believe there are a great many residents I of Washington who seldom manifest much 1 concern in its municipal elections, and who I under ordinary circumatances do not even I trouble themaeivea to go to the polls on the day of auch an election. If any at preaent indulge in thia apathetic I fading in relation to the election which is to take plsce on Monday next, it must be be- I cauie they have regarded Know Nothingism I aa an ephemeral excitemeat necessarily seon to die out, and who are. therefore, not disposed to wrangle with the generally obstreperoua and often verdant disciples of "Sam," but I prefer to let ao much of this silly and intole rant ?twt aa ia not already merged in the Black I Republican party perish ignobly by ftlo due I Aa tax-payera they knowingly submit to be I tieeced, under an expectation that the evil I will soon cure itself without any exertion on I their own part To auch persons we propose I to addreaa a few words, with a view of indu cing them to change their purpose of abaten- I tk>n, and of urging them to join the great maaa of the citi.ens at large in active exer tions to put an end to the imbecility and cor ruption which have characterised the city I government in the hands of the Know Noth inga, and which the success of their new can- I didatea will rather increase than diminish. If the Know Nothings are defeated, in the I change which will ?0<ue, the irregularities, the blundera, the corruptions in the City Hall I will terminate, and in their stead we shall have order, correctness, and good manage ment The bad personal feeling which has been ao generally generated throughout the ?itj by the ascendancy of Know Nothingiim, will be succeeded by a duration of good fee!- I ?ng Citisens will be able to discuss measures of local policy on their real merits, and not with regard to the influence they may have on the fortunea of a senseless and intolerant P?rty; .QJ, thui ^ ffoe ff0m ^ inrij|ible and irresponsible power in the Know Nothing lodges, the city will r?sume its career of pros parity;, her young men, who are now driven into ether cities to aeek for employment, (ex cept a few who are employed on tbe Govern ment work, and whose employment a Know Nothing member of Congress has lately been taking measures to suspend,; will return and be kept busy here; handsome edificea and comfortable cottagea will .rise; property will anhance in value, and all tbe channel? of ?,??? f?, , beDeaci? , ^ In.'.L l"""**"" 10 "7 ,hlt K"0" dri,'? c*pi"' cT Vb ' "> in th. city.

These and many other i benefit* will surely follow the defeat of Know Nothingism at our election on Monday next. The Challenge ?We learn that Genera] Lane, of Oregon, was, yesterday, the bearer of a challenge from Hon. P. S. Brooka, of South Carolina, to Hon. Henry Wilson, of Massa chusetts The letter of Mr. Brooks, we Isarn, concludes thus: ? I, therefore, hold mjself at liberty by this note to request that you will inform me with out delay where and when outside of this Dis trict a further note will find you." Gen. Wilson replies : ^ "I characterised, on the floor of the Senate, tne assault upon my colleague a* " brutal, murderous and cowardly." I thought so then. 1 think so now. I hare no qualifications whatever to make in regard to those words. I have always regarded duelling as the linger ing relic of a oarbarous civilisation, which the law of the country has branded as a crime While, therefore, I religiously believe in the righs of self-defense in its broadest sense, the law of my country and the matured convio tions of my whole life alike forbid me to meet you for the purpose indicated in your letter." Vote Early ?It is to be hoped that every anti-Know Nothing voter of Washington, draw ing wisdom from the experience of our last municipal election, comprehends the import ance of essaying to get in bis vote as near the opening of the polls as possible. The fact that the number of precincts is doubled and the time during which the polls are to be kept open is lengthened, furnish no reason for ne glecting the prime duty of voting as early as possible. At the last election the anti-Know J Nothing cause lost full five hundred votes, owing to the difficulty attending the getting them in, most of which loss would,have been avoided if the voters weilding them had at tended early and kept their places in the lines until reaohing the windows. Nine-tenths of the violence that disgraced that election and deterred hundreds from persevering until they could exercise their right, occurred in the af tornonn, when the luggards came on in crowds. It is the duty of every voter, of whatever politics, to strive to deposite his vote as early as possible on Monday next. An Old 'Un.?Yesterday we saw, is this oity, a Roman silver coin, weighing about as much as two of our ten-cent pieces will weigh, and of the diameter of the 12* oent piece. It was coined as early as A D . 10 ! ! ! and its execution is not inferior to many of the silver coins of this era. On one side it boars the inscription "Tiberius Imperator," around a rai.-eJ bust of the Emperor Tiberius, on the throne when it was coined ; a very marked and distinct countenance, indeed. On the other side, it bears a raised figure of a female (seated) resting one hand on a lance standing on the ground, and bearing a branch in the other hand. It was sent to a friend in Wash ington by Buckingham Smith, Esq , the Sec retary of the Legation of the United States in Madrid, who is himself a distinguished numismatist and literary antiquarian. Telegraphic Feat?The voluminous and important documents communicated yester day to Congress by the President, concerning our relations with England, were transmitted by the telegraphic agents of the associated press to the principal cities northward, and appear this morning in the columns of the leading journals of those cities. fcait Lake Mail ?By telegraphic despatch from Independence, Me., dated May 2S, we lesm that the Salt Lake mail, which left Salt Lake on the 1st of April, arrived at Indepen dence on the 29th of April. It was delayed in consequence of high weather and deep snow in the mountains. Bemoval ?It was rumored on the Avenue yesterday afternoon that Virgil D. Parris. special agent of the Post Office Department for the New England section, bad been removed.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, the President's message concerning the dismissal of Mr. Crampton, with documents relating thereto, were read, and ordered to be printed. Mr. Mason [we quote from the Intellijren eer s report] expressed the pleasure be felt at learning the conciliatory tone of Lord Clar endon s dispatch, and complimented Mr. Marcy s letter as being at once temperate, calm, and courteous, and no doubt would be received by the British Government in the same amicable manner that Lord Clarendon's dispatch had been received here. Mr. Cass had listened with pleasure to the reading of tho despatch of the Secretary of State. He regarded it as a conclusive and powerful analysis of the whole case It seemed to him that tho honor of the country imperiously required the dismissal of the Brit ish Minuter, aw J his only regret was that it had not been done long ago. He held that suspension of intercourse was a very com mon circumstance; indeed, he believed that it was an ordinary occurrence to inquire of gov ernments if ministers would be acceptable. He alluded to his case when appointed Min ister to France, and said that he remained in London until it was ascertained that it would be agreeable to France to receive a Minister Lngland had sent a Minister out of her coun try under a guard. Indeed be might cite nu merous instances of such suspension of inter course, if it was necessary. It was no cause f-.r war nor would war grow out of it unless Li.gland was determined to prooeed to it. The dccumen was an important one, and would be sought for with muoh avidity as containing elements of history, and he would move tu print 10,000 additional copies ?KMn ?T?,'- a.dmitVl tbat tbe dismissal of the British Minister did not of necessity lead * V/^nce of our pacific relations with Great Britain ; but still ne could but re gret that the matter had taken the course it had. Our Government having been satisfied, m.!i ^ /iW ? gi?d-' WUh the "Presentations n K^J?*reat, Lnta,u' the British Minister ought to have been permitted to remain. He thought it was m vain for us to say that the ?uKject in dispute had been satisfactorily ex plained, to declare that the apology or expla of th? British Government was ac cepted and then to remove the Minister who ZZSlBTZV' th? di'PUt? Whil?

Allies were engaged in the war against Rus sia it ?u highly proper for oar Government to have said, " hands ofT," so far as regards oar own people, in this controversy ; but after the war had oeaied, he thought the course scarcely rroper. He would not say that the British Government had a right to take ex ception to it, but he would have preferred to have had it done in the first instance or not at all. lie saw no reason why the two Gov ernments should be involved in commercial difficulties and scenes of retaliation, much less in actual war. He should regard that as a great calamity. It was one of those things he desired to avert, so far as he could do so by his counscl, consistently with the honor of his oountry. The Minister had been dis missed, and ho supposed the developments afforded what oar Government considered a justification for it; bat be thought, frcm the temper which pervaded the correspondent I of Lord Clarendon, and the tone of feeling I that seemed to exist in both countries, this I would be regarded as a most inopportune I time for thus dissolving diplomatic relations. I He would not say that our Government was not justified, but must be permitted to think it had chosen an inopportune period for its I action. Mr. Pratt desired to call attention to the fact that the letter of apology on the part of | the British Government was dated after the I Seace lately established by the Powers of I Europe. Whatever might have been the state I of affairs at the time when the offence was I given, England was certainly relieved from all expectation of difficulty with any European I Power at the time when the apology was made I whioh was deemed sufficient by our Govern- I ment. The offence oharged was that England had attempted to enlist soldiers hefe while en- I giged in war with a country with which we I wero at peace. The Government, after that peace, had disclaimed mry intentien of viola- I ting the luw of which we had complained. I Ho deemed it, then, beneath the dignity of I this Government to turn off the mere agent, I who had made a similar disclaimer, when the I British Government was released from all ret- I ponsibility. After brief rejoinders by Messrs. Cass and I Mason the conversation dropped. Bills granting public lands to the States of I Wisconsin, Alabama, Louisiana, and Michi- I gan to aid in the construction of railroads I were pas?ed, and the Iron Mountain railroad I bill was debated at considerable length, ere I they adjourned until Monday. In the Houae, Mr Grow reported a bill I for the admission of the State of Kansas into I the Union, and the 25th of June was fixed for I it; consideration. A resolution was adopted calling upon the I President of the United States for any official I information in his possession in regard to an I arrangement by the principal European Pow- I ers on the subject of privatoering. The House then agreed to adjourn over un- I til Monday (the Sergeant-at-Arins having been I directed to fit up the Hall for summer) with I the understanding that they would adjourn I from time to time throughout the whole of I next week; and the" they adjourned.

So strong is the belief of a war with England, that many houses won't buy any goods at the present time, and insurance oompanios are inserting the war clause in their policies."?iV. T.

These relics, it is said, consist of the bones of the Martyr Guietus. taken from the Cata combs of Rome, the vase containing the blood gathered at the time of his martyrdom, and the tablet commemorating his burial. The ceremonies will be conduoted by the Rt Rev. Dr Hajley, Bishop of Newark, who will preach on the occasion an appropriate sermon. .THE AFFRAY IN THE SENATE ? _ There U much diversity of opinion It regard to the Brooks and Sumner affair Some gen'lemen teem to think that Mr Brooks did wrong lncming Mr. S?mner t? tkt Senate. Moat Persons agree, kow?-ver, that a chastisement xtaould have been administered; but tk* place la the question. It appear* to me that Mr. Snmnor received hla punishment In tko right oloe?, aad to have In flicted It elsewhere would not hare given that dignity to the transaction which the circum ttances called for, noi would It have harmonized with the Constitution of the United States. The alxth section of the first article of 1 be Con stitution says,?"for any speech or debate in either house they (the Senators and Representa tives) "ball not be queetioned t* any other place." Now, by the very words of the Constitution, it is evident that Mr. Brooks could not have pun* ished Mr. Sumner "In any other place" wlthrut his violating his oath, unless, Indeed, he could be justified upon the axiomatic rule that ''neces sity knows no law ?? If members of Congress are made to know that they will cert dnly be held to a personal respon sibility for insulting remarks, either In debate or otherwise, they will, I am sure, very seldom use them. Supposed Impunity only gi*ea ? vll doers confidence, and Is the cause of nine-tenths of the insults offered in and oat of Congress No rain can tamely submit to insulting reflections upon bis honor without degradation, and so long as the law does not punish those who give insults, self respect must constrain gentlemen to resent the indignity. * Liberty of speech Is a precious immunity? guarantied by the Constitution; but liberty of abuse Is neither warranted by the National Char ter, nor the principles of good-brooding Hence, Mr Sumner was not authorized, according to either rule, to stigmatize Senator Butle-. who Is confessed bv his peers to be the impersonation of chivalry and honor, as a liar and fool, without reprehension. Upon the question of the mode of the chastise ment pood men may well differ; but upon the proposition that honor required a proper rebuke to M r. Sumner for his swaggering Insolence In so characterizing the venerable Hutier. no one will doubt that such rebuke was prompted by a proper principle of self-respect and a due regard for the courtesies which ihould obtain between gentle men Th's chastisement will, doubtless, act like a sedative among our legislators. A few moresuch

salutary examples will greatly Improve the style of the Congressional debates, and ladles will te able to attend them without being Insulted by such indelicate remarks as were Indulged in by Mr. Sumntrin his late "un-American and un patriotic speech,"as Gen. Cass has so aptly styled It. The Abolitionists of Boston seem quite indig nant because a Sou hern gentleman punisbed one of their representatives for insulting the ?ato of the Senate But when a Maryland slave-holder was pursuing hi* property under the Constitution in Pennsylvania, and was brutally murdered at Christiana by Abolition fanatics, no howling voice was then raised to condemn the atrorlous and cowardly act. And even in Boston, when that poor Irishman, Batchelder, an officer of the United States sworn to do his duty, was mur dered in cold blood, not one word of sympathy fer his bereaved family, or in condemna ion of the Infamous act, came from thnse pious fanatics cf that saintly city! In the one case they ap prove the murder of innoetnt men; but in the other the mere enn n? of a fanatic is of more con sideration to them than the lives of citizens pur suing their rights under the guaranties of the Constitution !
