To Political Clcss ?Political clabi will And the arrangements of the Star offioe for printing their circulars, addresses arguments, pamphlets, Ac., aa complete as those of any other printing office in the United States. They may rely upon having such work done at the Sftr office in a satisfactory manner as to style and price, and in the shortest possible time Be sore to give as a eall before making arrangements elsewhere. Notice ?Those charged with the manage ment of clnbs, societies, and all other associa tions are notified that in order to insure the insertion of advertisements or notices of any description in the Star, payment must be made fer them when offered, or an arrangement for the payment for the same provided for. There are now on file in our counting room many advertisements, not inserted, because our terms hare not been complied with. This rule must be imperative. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS The Intelligencer earnestly deprecate? the Idea of a war with England. The Union argues that there can be no question as to the fact that the purpose of Colonel Benton is to defeat the Buchanan and Breckinridge electoral ticket in Missouri, and also that the Colonel, through F. P. Blair, Jr., haa proposed a eoalition-iutrigue with the Know Nothing party of the State, the main object of whioh on his part is to secure his (Col. B.'s) re-ele?tion to the Senate of the United States by means of Know Nothing votes. So ttey go. ^ ^ WAfHIKOTOK SEWS AND GOSSIP The state of Pan Francisco?On our first page will be found a full account of tbe singular state of things existing in San Francisco when the last steimer whose mails have reached us, departed thence. It will bo perceived that the Vigilance Committee are doing their work thoroughly, and th.it the op position which the State government has. so far, been able to make to them, has been one of words only. A private letter, from a re liable source, bears out the declarations of nearly every one of the mar;y published ao counts from thence?that so fur as the obser vance of^aw, private rights, and public de cency are concerned, the city has never before been in so healthy a condition. The grand jury, in their presentment of the Vigilance Committee under instructions from one of the judges, take occasion to declare their earne&t sympathy with the Committee's acts, and to add that they were wholly the result of the sweeping corruption of all fountains of law and justice there, of the insecurity of life and property, and of the fact that perjurers, thieves and desperadoes bad obtained so complete con trol of tbe goTernment#rganisation as that no other defence was left for those having a stake in the condition of society, but such a revolu tion as bad occurred. It is understood that the Cam.'Bittee designed cor.tinuing in ses sion until it ^ad driven from the State the notorious desperado.?* and scoundrels who were the chief actors in tnC occurrences that forced it (the Committee) again into ac tive measures. So far, not a man had molested except those of the class to whom we refer. Nor was there any reason to believe that any other citizen would in any way suffer at their hands. We care not what may be the nominal pol itics of the villains thus hunted out of Cali fornia, we rejoice that the State is getting rid of them on any terms; a temporary revolution con ducted by the best citixens, being a far less evil than the continuance of the entire control of their State and municipal affairs which tbe hunted class had obtained by perjury, force and fraud. We have seen no more striking evidence of the abiding stability of our system of government than is to be drawn from the existing revolution in San Francisco, and the certainty that those who have created it will resign their power without having once abused it, on the moment their patriotic task shall have been oompleted. Apropos A single fact which we see stated in a San Francisco newspaper illustrates so forcibly the state of the sources of justice in that community and the necessity for its cor rection oo any terms, that we republish it, as follows?vii : Out of a thousand murders that have been committed ic San Francisco since its settlement by our countrymen, but three had been punished under judgment of the eourts! Ths Hards and Softs ?Nothing else has occurred since the Cincinnati Convention that has caused so much pain to the democracy of Congress from all quarters of tbe country, as the refusal of the Hard Central State Com mitte (of New York) to carry out, in good faith. the pledge made by their delegation at Cincinnati to execute the programme for the settlement of ibe difficulty in the party in that State agreed on by tbat Convention The representatives of the Hards upon that pledge alone were admitted on equal terms (wish the Softs) over the report of tbe Cre dentials' Con.mittee eompoeed of tbe ableat and moe considerate member of each dele gation, ee*ected to diepote of their question, and that a!one. Tfcey devoted long days and early whole nights to a patient investi gate n of the voluminoue testimony presented and to carefully weighing the arguments ad duced. and reported in favor of allowing the two rival sections to be represented pro rata with their relative strength as manifested in their average vote at each succeeding election* in the three previous years; and also that the Soft organisation is the regular Democratic organisation cf tbe Empire state. The Softs, however, manifested, so generous a spirit that the majority of tbe Convention determined to tax their devotion to the eause to the extent of demanding that they should mest the minor ity on equal terms in the body; and to that determination they added instructions that a single State convention should be called. On the assembling of the two State commit tees recently at Albany, to tbe astonishment of the Democracy of the whole Union after what transpired at Cincinnati, the Hard com mittee refuse to join in that call, alleging that they have no authority to do so from thoir constituents. They make this refusal on so flimsy a pretext, with the full knowledge that they are thus endangering the success of the Democratic national ticket in New York. They have fead ample time to obtain such au thority, if th?t were indeed necessary; and the fact that not having essayed thus to do what they now Bay wu nccessary to enable them to comply with the obligation under which their delegation was admitted at Cincin nati, is prima facie evidence that their plea is a mere subterfuge to enable them to perpetuate the division in the party of the State. There san be but a single purpose on the part of those who are controlling their mad councils?vis : thus to obtain more influence under the in joining national administration than may be legitimately due to their aggregate vote when sompared with that of their rivals, whose con iuct is challenging the approbation and ad miration of all sincere supporters of the Cir. :innati nominations at this point. They (the Bard committee) feel that they are largely n the minority of the party, and think that >hey may continue to conceal that fact by maintaining their separate organisation, rhey (the Hard State committee) are fool shly childish in essaying such a game at such i time. Mr. Buchanan is a man of experience ind good sense, and cannot fail to deal with ill wings of the party with strict justice; as, ipon the sternness with which he carries out hat policy, depends in a great measure the 'act whether his administration will command he support of the great body of the Democ acy, without which which it must be power ess for any good whatever We believe that he mass of the Hards of New York are as inxious as are the Softs to carry out the set lement of their inter-party difficulties decreed it Cincinnati, and that they will promptly -epudiate the apparently sinister and certain y suicidal actnn of their representatives re ently assembler at Albany, which cannot be ustained by thjm except at the cost of an intire loss of confidence in them by the whole f the Democracy of every other State of the Jnion. ? The Progress of the Fine Arts in this Country.?We were wonder stricken a few lays since on entering the studio of a gentle nan of wealth and high standing in this com nunity, who in his day was one of its most loted business men, to find that he has not >a!y been devoting his late years of compara ive leisure to the production of model* of the iculptor, for which wo did not dream he was mdowed with taste, but that ho proves to bi >ne of the very first artists known, so far, to >ur country's history. He has devoted somo iwenty years to such pursuits, for his own imusement; keeping his secret from all but ais immediate friends, who seem to have con i pi red to aid him in concealing all knowledge )f his proficiency as an artist from the world. We found in his studio tbe busts of many per lons whom we know, all of them striking like nesses. Among them is a bust of John Quincy ^.dams, as he appeared shortly before his ieath. It is by far the finest work of art ind the most faithful likeness that we ever (aw in a lust of that distinguished man, md we have seen every noted bust of Mr. Adams in the country, we believe. Among the gems in the studio of this gentleman s a figure of a child eighteen months old, in eighth larger than life ; the subject be ng a grand child of the artist. We cannot lescribe the perfection of the conception and execution of this life-like work, which, in its ivery line, speaks to the heart, as it were. The little fellow is represented seated on the floor (pedestal) stretching out one arm and ?esting on. or rather balancing himself by aid )f the other. This gentleman has uncom pleted in his studio a colossal hor^e, upon irhich he has been three years engaged. The rork, completed, is to represent a nude In who having mounted a wild horse has lashed UpOT1 him up to the edge of a precipice >r chasm, where animal suddenly and riolently checks his speed starts back ; itanding with one leg uplifted and the others traced so as to prevent him from being presi )itated into tho yawning abyss below. We lo not believe that thore exists elsewhere, in iny country, so fine a colos-al model of the 'ull-blooded horse. Being an adept in horse lesh ourself to a certain extent, we pro ess to know and to be able to appreciate he points of a magnificent animal; and there 'ore speak from the book in criticising the ine judgement of the artist in bis concep ion of his task, and tbe great artistic skill with which the design in all its points is >eing carried out. This work is an immense task of itself, and must require some years :or its entire completion. When completed, Jo grand and affective is the design, and so irtistic is the manner in which it is being cx scuted, as that it can hardly fail to become i world-wide wonder. We might dwell upon be treasures of the studio of this hitherto :oncealed American artist for hours, with un signed delight, if.our space at command in he Star would permit us so to do. The P/esident's Position, and that of his friends ?Col. John H. George, of New Hamp* hire, one of the most eloqtffent and gifted ihampions of the democratic faith in New England, recently stated in a speech at Na hoa, New Hampshire, that " none will fol ow tbe standard of Mr. Buchanan more :losely or give him more hearty and enthusi utic support than the friends of Gen. Pierce, lowever strong their personal preferences may lave-been before the convention [Knthusias -hi applause ] By so doing they will not only lo their duty to their candidate and their jarty, but gratify most fully tbe desire of ien Pierce On his return from Cincinnati he saw the President at Washington. Say to my friends at heme, said he, that the highest tribute of respect they can pay to me will be to roll up a majority of thousands for Mr. Buchanan. |Cheers and cries of ' we will do it "J Affairs in New Mexioo ?A correspondent st Santa Fe, New Mexico, writes us on the 2d uf June as follows: W ? are on the eve of a war with the Navajo Indians. General Garland intends to take the field against them in person at the head of as strong a force as be can make by drafts upon tbe various posts within bis military depart ment. The court martial for tbe trial of Major Geo A. H Blake, of the U. S. dragoons, resumes its sesaion to day, having adjourned to this period in order to procure tbe important tes timony of Judge P U. Brocchus. Tbe Judge arrived at Fort Union, in bis judicial district, on the ltftb ult., and is now in this city, having been most kindly greeted on bis return to tbe Territory by the citisens of Santa Fe. The charges against Major Blake are numerous and serious, and relate to a mutiny of the troops belonging to bis regiment at Fernandet de Taos last spring He i? charged, among other things, with having aided and abetted in bringing the mutiny about. Ail the officers of the Territory are now at their posts, excepting Mr. Davis, the Secre tary, who is on a visit to tbe States. Our esteemed fellow oitisen, James L. Col lias, Ktq.t editor of the Santa Fe Uaiette. leaves with the mail ol this mouth for Wash too. Tbe citisens of this place called upon bins in a body last evening to take leave of him?to wish him a safe journe^ and a speedy return to a community by which he is so highly esteemed, and to whom his services as a bold and faithful editor are of the most vital importance. Let the influence of your spirited, able, and widely circulated paper be felt at the metrop olis of the nation on behalf of our remote and neglected New Mexico. If the country wishes to see the vast resources of this portion of our domain rapidlv and brilliantly developed, a liberal fostering policy must be pursued towards us. All honor to our gallant and pa triotic Secretary of War, Col Jeff Davis, for the vigorous manner in whieh he has directed the strength of the Department over which he {resides with such eminent ability against the ndian? of this Territory Under such an ad ministration as his the Indians will soon retire from our valleys and fields, and leave the plowman and the shepherd to reap the rich fruits of their honest industry. If the whole government would do as true and effective a part by us as the Secretary of War and the gallant officers under him have done, we should soon cease to suffer or complain, and New Mexico would become as bright in her prosperity as she is in her diamond stars and cloudless skies. Amioo dkl Pais. The Texas Debt Error.?It may be inferred from an article in our issue of Saturday in relation to the settlement of the Texas debt* that the error (which amounts to but a few hundred dollars,) was entirely attributable to the Comptroller of Texas. We did not intend to be so understood. The action of the Comp troller of Texas in connection with the set tlement of the debt, is, as we now understand it, simply to certify to the genuineness of the securities filed ; the further adjustment of the :laim is not under his control.

From Lands From Customs [)n account of the Navy CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS In the House, Siturday, after we went to press, the speech of Mr Stopbens against the id mission of Kansas with the Topeka-madc State constitution, was replied to by Mr. Campbell, of Ohio. Mr. Evans next argued against the passage of the bill to that end reported from the Ter ritories Committee by Mr. Grow. Mr Dunn moved to amend the pending amendment (substitute) of Mr. Stephens to that bill by adding thereto a section restoring the Missouri compromise. Mr Grow here moved the previous question. And then, after the failure of a few motions to delay action on the demand of Mr. G , it was seconded by the House ; after which the; adjourned. PreceediBg* ef To-Day. In the Senate, to-day, the bill to accord to the State of California 8,000 stand of Govern mcnt arms was passed. Mr Douglas reported back from the Com mi'.tee on Territories his bill to admit Kansas as a State into the Union, accompanied by a report in writing; which, with the bill, was ordered to be printed. The printed substitute of Mr. Toombs for the bill mentioned above was being read for information as the Star went to press. In the Honse, Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, moved to take up the joint resolution fiom the Senate fixing the 28th of July, proximo, fir the day on which the session of Congress shall terminate Mr. Matteson and many others objected ; leave was not granted to Mr J. to make that motion Mr. McMullin moved to reconsider the vote by which the House had, on Saturday, ordered the main question to the bill to admit Kansas as a State on the Topeka-made constitution and on the amendments pending thereto, and previously, on the pending motion cf Mr. Dunn for their commitment yx; Giddings moved to lay the motion to reconsider ou tbe table; agreed to?yeas 98, nays S9 Mr Grow then delivered the closing speech on the bill above mentioned, arguing in favor of its immediate enactment. New Publications From Joe Shiliington we have Blackwood's Magazine for June, an excellent number The article entitled " Speculatiuns on the Future? Our Alliances," will be found of special in terest at this juncture to American readers. From J. Shiliington we have also '-Putnam" for July, the literary department of which is' as usual, of a high order ; otherwise it is dis figured by a rabid political article, hardly dignified enough for the columns of tbe most virulent partizan sheet. From Shiliington we have received also Frank Leslie's Gazette of Fashions, which, from a hasty examination, strikes us as a su perior number. PERSONAL ....John Brougham is about to open the Bowery Theatre New York. ....Laura Keene and Mr. Burton have compromised their resp^ptive rights and pro jects in regard to the Metropolitan Theatre. ....

The Huntsvilln (Texas) Item states that General lionston has recovered from bis lato attack of cat.irrb, and is now able to stir about and see his friends H? will return to Wash ington shortly. The General's attack was very serious, and at one time his friends were alarmed on account of his danger. Speculation in the Fak West ? A corres Kndent ol the Northern Advocate, writing >in St Paul Minnesota, May 30, says : " A gentleman from Massachusetts, a capi talist, last month, offered S140 900 for a ''wa ter privilege" at St. Anthony's Falls, for manufacturing purposes, which would have baei of incalculable advantage to that local ity and country, and which wad thought by the more rational of the citiiens to have been all the privilege was worth, and even more? and yet his offer wag spurned with a vim, and colly remarked 4ithat privilege must bring him a quarter of a million or no sale " In village property there will be a cra*b, and let those that will, stand from under lest they find themselves buried beneath its ruins Scores are returning to tbe East without mak ing investments for business purposes, who, but for tbe sharkish speculations of the West, would have increased her business facilities, in many towns fifty per cent, within the short spaoe of two years '' The Frog Market.?We presume a majori ty of our citiiens are unaware of the fact that quite a lively frog business is being transacted in our city. Such, however, is the case, and a man is constantly engaged in buying up this delectable delicacy for the New York market where it commands a high price We are in formed that the consumption of thia article is not alone confined to tbe Johnny Crapraua, but it is also indulged in to a considerable ex tent by Americans.

A Democratic exchange says the "names ef six of the Presidents of tne United State* end ed in N?nearly half?and the next N will unquestionably be BuchannN."

Col Jemes was a delegate to the Know Nothing National Council which recently met in New York city. The Old Line Whigs of the Ashland district of Kentucky have presented to Hon. J. C Breckinridge e handsome pair of boreea '-a? an evidence of their pride in their fellow citi sen, though of opposite politics, and as a pledge of their confidence in toe coming administra tion, of which he will be a prominent member. The St. Louis Republican says that Benton has no idee of being elected Governor of Mis souri, but that he nopes to get votes enough to defeat Polk, the nnti Beaton oendidate, and give the electioo to Mr. Ewing, the Know Nothing. Io that event he will go before the next Legislature and ask at the hands of the Americans au election to the Senate of the United States. We see by our exjhange papers that in Vir ginia the candidates nominated for electors on the Fillmore licket are declining to run since Mr. Buchanan has been nominated S S. Weisiger, of Amelia; J H Gilmer, of Rich mond; K B Davis, of Lousia; W W Cros by. of Goochland, and G W Boiling, of Pe tersburg, decline to act as Presidential elec tors In Mississippi, Amos R. Johnston, Esq , one of the candidates for elector on that tick et for the State at large, has also declined. The Democrats are making heavy calculn tions on Kentucky. The Louisville Democrat speaking of Breckinridge, remarks : Without his nomination we should have carried the State by a small majority say from four to five thousand With his name upon the tick et we shall probably increase the majority lightly?perhaps to twelve or fifteen thous and. The speech of Hon. Anson Barlingame, lelivered in the House ?>f Representatives at Washington, on the 2lst inst , in de.enee ?f Massachusetts Republican partyi.-m, ?md tgainst the South, is to be printed and spread >vrr the old Bay State as an electioneering iocument. _ Later from Liberia ?By the bark Mendi Miller wo have advices from Monrovia to the 13th of May.

A Slight Mistake.?The Louisville Jour lal has the following nonchalant paragraph : ' We learn that a shooting affair came off at [jake Providence, about a week ago A man iamed Jones shot a man named Patterson, uistaking him for one Pennington. Patter son, after being shot twice, one of the ba'ls odging in his breast, drew a pistol and was ibout shooting Jones, when the latter begged lis pardon, saying he had mistaken his man Patterson generously accepted the apolcgy. His wounds are not mortal " Singular Death.?A young naval officer >f Dantzic, lately died under the following itrange circumstances. He was attending x large party at Oltwa, when a boy brought a frog into the room. The young man took it, looked at it a moment, and handed it back Ele soon after lifted the hand to his lip on which there happened to be a small pimple or sxcoriation. The lip immediately began to nflamo and caused him sq much pain that he was obliged to return home. His whole lip was cut away but the infiamation could not be stopped, and he died two days afterwards in unspeakable agony. jNOTICB ?ALL CITIZENS OF 1L linois now re ldiny In tbls ei'y, who re favorable to the election of Buchanan ard Breck I- ridge are earnestly requited to meet at tVe 11M io's emo ratlc Club Room, No 273 F treet, rn THURSDAY, 3d day of J ulv next, ^t 7 o'clock p.m ; is bqslneis will be brought to the at ertion >f the Club/ (Union) je 30-3t? .ATTENTION, JOURNEYMEN CONFEC HONLKS- All Journeyman Do fectloners fivorable to the formation of an As sociation for their n.utul bencHt, ire req ested :o attend a meeting for tfe*t purp -se at Tempe rance Hall on WEDNESDAY NIGHT, July 2d, it8 o'clock. je30-3'. ?
