The Intelligencer is to-day wholly devoted to news. The Vnlon'comments on the efforts of the London Times to bring about the dismissal of Mr. Dallas, pronouncing its arguments ex ceedingly silly. The editor characterizes the attempt of the English journals and Mr. Crampton to give undue prominence to the part Herts and Strobel played in the affair on this side of the water a mere '?dodge," contending, at the same time, that Mr. Crampton's own letters convict him of all the charges alleged against him. WASHINGTON NEWS AND QPSSIP What a Pall!?Our earliest knowledgo of Col. Benton was when he was the trusted and admitted leader of the Democracy in Congress under Jackson's administration. From that day until the Texss question arose, he was universally regarded by the party as the in dividual who was certain to be placed in the Presidency by them next after Mr. Van Bu ren. At that time he was notoriously the moet vehement stickler for implicit obedience to tke action of party conventions?county district, State, and National?in Congress j making fierce war on all who dreamed of cer. eeiving it poMible that a Democratic party Con* vention could do any wrong. Even pereonal association with a Whig or an Abolitionist was an abomination in his eyee not to be forgiven He made a fautc pes upon the Texas question, and for his own future a greater one in his subsequent effort to enub and browbeat the party into the adoption of his mistake as their policy. Thus, he quarrelled with tho?e on whom be really had strong claims, who had stood shoulder to shoulder with him for nearly a quarter of a century His bitter taunts and sarcasms, carefully rehearsed, in advance of their utterance in public, instead of making them submissive to his will and views, only ex asperated them the more, and destroyed the ties binding them to him. He was found, while nominally supporting Mr Polk's election, and administration, really furnishing the Opposi tion most of its arguments against both. By the et.d of the Polk administration he ud the Democracy of tb? ?o?nt,7 aw feooomo as l itterly hostile to each other as it was possi ble for parties with different principles and totally diverse interests to be. Since then, at no time has he acknowledged the au thority of the party organisation; nor has he lost any opportunity to bring it into dis repute. His labor of love (hate ?) has been to convince the world that the blackest hearted villains and the greatest fools in existence are those men, one and all, whom the Democracy delight to honor. Hia M history of his own times'' was undertaken, and has been faith fully prosecuted, wholly to the end of render ing them, and all others to whom he attributes lot or part in the work of stripping him of the confidence and control of the great Democra tic party of the country, unpopular. Nothing in the shape of slander, derogatory to then.* though insuring for him the contempt and disapprobation of the country, has proved too low and too undignified to be resorted to by him; until his speeches, one and all, have be come mere vulgar falsehoods against sounder men than himself intellectually, politically, and morally. So universally is this fact now comprehended that ninety-nine in every hun dred men of all parties realise and admit there never was anything written, purporting to be history, more unreliable than the state ments of Colonel Benton concerning publie occurrences in which he participated. His last published speech (delivered in Missouri) illustrates eapitally, the depth to which he baa fallen from his former high post tion as a statesman. Embracing neither a single original argument nor a single patriotic entiment original or filched, it is made up of ? ulgar and dirty personalities and impudent virago-ish abuse of gentlemen from whom he iiffers, conceived and expressed as though he had studied as models, only tke never to be forgotten Mr Felix Grundy McConnell and Mrs. Anne Royal, whose styles he manages to combine so artistically as that he cannct fail to draw shouts from some portions of the mis cellaneous crowd usually attending the deliv ering of a stump speech in this country. Yet Anne Royal would have " done up" the vitu perstion of his effort better, while Felix Grun dy McConnel, would have "out" blackguarded even him, as great a proficient in that accom plishment as he has certainly become. Read ing his effort on that occasion is sufficient to tarn one who values dignity of character, re gard for truth and unselfishness in our publio men, sick at the stomach over the thought that one of his now so evident low natural tastes and brutal malignity of heart, eould, by the force of party drill and efforts to disguise his innate propensities, for so long a period as Col. Benton did, maintain himself in a distin guished public position in this community. Thunderstruck, by Go?h !-Never were gen tlemen more amazed than were the Repub licans of the House yesterday on finding themselves caught in their own trap. Their aim was to have rubbed the Topeka made con stitution of Kansas through, sans c~e,?ui* ; thrusting it down the throats aot only of its avowed opponent/, but of a dosen gentlemen who voted with them only under the foolish belief of its overwhelmning popularity in the North. They (the Republicans) admitted freely that its adoption by the abolitionists of the I -tory was an act of palpable revela tion against the Government of the United State?, and that it had not been voted for *>7 more than from three to five hundred citisens of the Territory ; and jet insisted that the House should impose it on the people of the Territory by way of strengthening the cause of the Republican party in the ap proaching national election. A day or two sicca, the New York Tribun$, whose organ and agent in the House this same Republican party is, avowed that such and such alone was the purpose for which the measure was being urged. Its (the bill's) main object is to put Reeder, fresh from his speculations in his pub lie trust, and Lane, as fresh from affairs re flectirg quite as little credit on him person ally, in the Senate of the United State?, and Robinson, the purchased California legislator and refugee, into a governor's chair, and to establish on the immediate border of the heavy slaveholding quarter of Missouri a grand harbor for runaway negroes ; and farther, to vindicate the right of Massachusetts in meet* iogs of her preachers, loafers, women, aid Sunday sohool children, to determine what shall be the institutions under which the peo ple of a far distant quarter of the Union shall live. Our summary, though brief, really em braces the points involved in this dashing effort of the Republican party of the House te cram this mad measure down the throat of Congress. Great credit is due to those Northern friends of Mr. Fillmore who evinced the courage to vote their sentiments against this measure. Our only regret is that more of them could not raise their independence to as high a point. They all know and feel that this scheme for forcing, by Congressional action, the Topeka-made constitution upon the peo ple of Kansas at the behest of a more hand ful of Abolitionists of the Territory, is in fla grant violation of every principle of our system and Government; that it is wrong in every point of view ; and that the best inter ests of the Territory and country impera titely require its defeat Believing, however, that the Senate would surely give it its quie. tus, they declined risking their own political future by running counter to abolition senti ment in their respective districts. The Settlement.?The action of the House yesterday, after we went to press, upon the Topeka-made constitution of Kansas, leads us to anticipate with much confidence that ere the session terminates, the bill not long since introduced into the Senate by Mr. Toombs?to authorise the people of Kansas to frame a State constitution for themselves, if they desire t) change their politioal status, and to secure them a free expression of their, sentiments upon the subject at the ballot box perfectly unmolested by persons not residents of the Ter ritory?will become a law. Such is the sub stance of this bill as reported back from the Territories Committee, accompanied by one of the most powerful arguments known to the history of the legislation of this govern ment, from the pen of Stephen A. Douglas. Had that gentleman's career as an Amerioan statesman resulted in nothing save thissinglo report, it wuuld immortalise his reputation as a publicist and statesman. The Senate will pass the bill as thus re ported tack, ere adjourning on Weduesday next; and as soon as it can be reached in the House, after due debate, it will be enacted there, also, despite the lashings and lucubra tions of Mr Greeley and his Tribun*, and the howlings over the action of yesterday upon theTopcka abolition soheme that will be set up throughout the North wherever they may be combined in the same immediate neighborhood, a cunning demagogue, a half crazy, over-righteous and really ignorant par ion, and an old maid whose restless spirit attends to the business of every body around her because she has no domestic establish ineht of her own to care for. We believe that at least a dosen of those who voted yes terday for this measure last referred to, would not have done so, if not very sure than the Senate would reject it; and that at least half of them, if not more, will gladly vote for the bill which the Senate will send to the House ere separating on Wednesday next; and that thus the vexed question of the session will be settled on the basis of justice, popular rights, common sense and integrity of purpose, which will insure the approbation of the people of the United States, (except that of the ultra Abolltionifets.) whenever it becomes thorough* ly c.mprchended; as it can^t fail to be in a very short time, popular attrition being now so universally directed to the subject. Monsieur Tonson come again, be gar! [coxvukioaYbd. Mr. Editor : There seems to be some diffi culty in ascertaining what Mr. Campbell said in his speech on the steps of the City Hall, on Saturday night, the 21st June, in reference to the Brooks and Sumner affair I was within thiee or four feet of Mr. C , and though he did not mention tbe names of either of those gentlemen, be said that which led me instantly to revert to that affair. He made use of words that could not possibly have alluded to any thing el?e ; and on this point was very violent and abusive. His abuse of the Administration Wud characteristic; he soemed to have gone into the place where was hid away from sight all the vulgarity of his language, and raked up the nastiest of tbe slime aud served it up on the occasion for the palates of his epicurean audience He put on high steam, and ranted and reared and bellowed liken young bull at the sight of something red. He actually got so low down as to accuse some little boys, who were rather disorderly, of being 44under pay" to make a disturbance there. While upon this subject I would correct one sentence of your notice of his speech?know ing, as I do, that rou have no desire to do any man injustice You said that he made a 4* violent and virulent Abolition speech " His speech was really the mo3t moderate and national, 1 suppose, that has escaped his lips since he took upon himself Abolition affinities. He said he was opposed to the spread of sla very, because he believed it to be an evil, but that he was willing to meet the extreme South at our oountry's tribunal and abide their decision; that he was for maintaining all our laws, and knew no higher law than the Constitution- Indeed, there was so muoh more of soundness in this speech than what he has had the character of uttering heretofore, that I really feared be was contemplating an at tempt to eoine into the Democracy and support Buchanan?being credibly informed, as 1 was, that he repudiated both Fremont and Fill* more. Lbx. The U.S. Steam Frigate Merrimac ?The newspapers are in error as to the result of the recent trial of the machinery of this noble vessel. According to the official reports of her, her boilers and engines give perfect satisfac tion in every respect, as well as all her other parts, except the journals of her propel ler shaft, which, having sunk aft about half an inch, have thrown the propeller off its proper centering, and thus occasion it to werk badly. This is one of tbe usual contingencies of a new ship, such as occur with many Ream ers on flnt going to work. The Mernmac will soon leave Key West for Boston, where thia ; slight defect will be remedied in perhaps twenty-four hours. At Key West there are no facilities for remedying it. The Strnggl* in the House ?This morn ing the Republicans seemed to hare won over Mr. Barclay, of Pa. The exposition of that gentleman'* course on the bill, made by Mr. Houston, of Ala., was an unmerciful affair very. When we left the House hall we did not entertain the impression that the Repub licans could carry the motion to reconsider. Their efforts (backed by sundry extraordi nary decisions of the Speaker) to get in the report of the Kansas Investigating Committee, looked as though those managing them were then hopeless of passing the (Topeka constitu tion) bill. The United States Steamer Fulton arrived at the Washington navy yard yesterday morn ing, in five and a half days from Key West, Florida?three and half days to tho capes of the Chesapeake; officers and crew all well. The following is a list of her officers, vf*: Lieut. Commanding?Richard L. Tilghman Lieutenants?Henry Wilson, John Irwin and A. W. Weaver Purser?Wm. G. Marcy. Passed Assistant Surgeon?D. B. Phillips. Engineers?First Assistant?G. F. Hebard ; Third Assistants?C lei and Lindsley, J. B. Kimball, Charles Shroeder and Alexander Greer. Contract Awarded ?The contract for the supply of stationery to the Department of the Interior and its various bureaux for the en suing fiscal year, ha* been again awarded to our enterprising fellow citiiens, Messrs. Tay lor <t Maury. The samples accompanying M osars. Taylor Jt Maury's bid, elicited uni versal admiration throughout the Department for their very superior qualities. Messrs. McSpeden A Baker, Roe A Co., and Bowne A Hasbrouck, of New York, and R. Farnham, of this city, were the unsuccessful bidders. Their samples were also beautiful and elicited much praise. A Peace Document.?The New Orleans Delta, in publishing the cotton document re cently prepared at the Statistical office of the State Department, in obedienco to a resolu tion of the Ilou?e, offered by Mr. Stephens, of Ga., says : "Altogether, this document is one of the strongest peaco arguments that could be produced. While revealing tho commercial strength and wealth, it exhibits also the mu tual dependence, of rival nations " The House, on Saturday, ordered the print ing of 10,000 extra copies of this document. Resigned.? Our friend, Joseph J." Brown, Esq , has juet proved that even the great Jef ferson did not always speak infallibly, or that things have changed since his day, for he has voluntarily resigned the fourth class clerk ship ($1,000) in the office of the Adjutant General, War Department. Mr. B. enters upon the moro congenial pursuits of business in private life, for which, from his industry and shrewdness, he is peculiarly fitted. New Consuls Acknowledged ?The Presi dent has acknowledged G. K Zirgler, as con sul of the Netherlands for tho States of Pennsylvania and Delaware, to reside in Philadelphia; and Cluus Vacke, as consul for the same government, for Marylaud and the District of Columbia, to reside at Balti more Americans Ruling America.?The reader ] is referred to our local columns for an account of the Louieville-ish conduct of a Know Nothing mob in this city under cover of the j darkness of last night, concerning which we have no room for comments to-day.

The annual Indian appropriation bill was then taken up, and after being amended in sundry particulars, was postponed until this morning. The following bills were then passed, vis : Bill to extend the charter of the President and Directors of the Fireman's Insurance Company of Washington and Georgetown. Joint resolution to enable the Secretary of State to pay to certain clerks in the Depart ment of State the same compensation which has been paid to clerks of the same grade in the other Executive departments Bill for the relief of Richard W Meade. The bill for the relief of John H Scranton and James M Hunt, owners of the steamer Major Tompkins, was taken up; but no quo rum being present, they adjourned. In the Home, tho question was put on Mr. Dunn's amendment (directing the restoration of the Missouri Compromise) to the proposition of Mr Stephen; to reccmiait the Topeka-made constitution of Kansas with instructions to re port back in lieu therefor the bill for tho ad mission of Kansas as a State into the Union, offered by himself, which was identical with the bill proposed in the Senate by Mr. Toombs; and the proposition of Mr. Stephens was agreed to?yeas 109, nays 102 The question then recurred on agreeing to the proposition of Mr. Stephens as just amended by the addition of that of Mr. Dunn. Mr Stephens asked leave to withdraw tho instructions forming a part of his proposition ; but objection being made, leave was not grant ted ; and then the question last above-stated, to commit, &o , being put, it was not agreed to?yeas 2, nayB 210 Mr Barclay moved to reconsider that vote. Mr Grow moved to lay the motion to re consider on the table. Mr. Joues, of Tenn., moved to lay the whole subject on the table ; not laid on the table? yeas 106, nays 107. Mr. Carlile moved to adjourn ; not agreed to. The bill was then read a third time, with* out a call for yeas aud nays.

In the Senate, to-day, two or three pri vate bill* were passed, and Mr. Collamer made a minority report from the Territories Committee on the bill of Mr. Toombs. The bill granting the right of way for the St. Louis and Iron Mountain railway through the publio grounds at Jeffermn barracks, was discussed by many Senators before the hour arrived for taking up the Kansas State bill question, upon whieh Mr. Thompson, of Ky., was addressing the Senate when we went to press. In the House. Mr. Barclay moved to re consider the vote of yesterday, by which the Kansas Topeka State Constitution bill had failed to pass. Mr. Houston addressed the House against that motion, commenting, in the course of his remarks, on the policy of Mr. Barclay upon the bill. Mr. H then moved to lay Mr. Barclav's motion on the table ; but withdrew that motion to er.able Mr. B to make an explanation. Mr Barclay addressed the House in expla nation, and was replied to by Mr Houston, of Alabama, and then renewed the motion to lay on the tablo. Mr. Howard, rising to what be called a question of higher privilege, proposed to re port the Kansas affairs select (investigating) oommittoo, ?ud the question of that gentle man's right to make the proposed report at that time. The Speaker ruled his report to be in order. Mr Orr appealed from that decision ; and was arguing his appeal when the Star went to press. PERSONAL. ..
