The Union shows that Garrison and his party recognise the Republican party organi sation to be but the offspring of their own loins. The Intelligencer rejoices over the now evi dent determination of the British Government not to send Mr. Dallas back to the United States. ?????^? ? WASHINGTON SEWS AND GOSSIP The Report ?The majority of the Kansas Investigating Committee, or some one of those paid out of the U. S Treasury to help them In their work of garbling and misrepresenting the facts involved in the state of affairs in Kansas with "the aid of the army of pei" jurers, murderers and other perpetrators of fraud and violence to abolitioniee the Terri tory who were the instruments with which they oarried out the ends for which they were sent out from this city?have furnished to the Intelligevcer an abstract of the report pre sented to the House yesterday. We transfer it to our columns, below, as a matter of public interest. Two or three facts connected with it are especially worthy of note. first. It admits that General Whitfield re ceived at both elections at which he was re turned to the House, a majority or plurality of the legal votes cast. Second It is plain that their plea that the Legislature ordering the eleotion at which he was chosen to be a delegate in the present Con gress was an illegal one, cannot avail them, because their position upon the whole ques tion is, that the action of the majority of the legal voters of the Territory, without warrant of law, is sufficient to render valid their acts; and that Congress should carry out their sen timents so expressed without stopping to in quire whether they acted under warrant of law or not While we by no means admit the truth of their pretended conclusions with ref erence to the question whioh side has the ma jority or plurality of the legal votes of Kansas, we contend that their admission that Gen. Whitfield teas elected to the present Congress by a plurality of the legal votes of the Terri tory, without taking into the estimate on his side the alleged votes from Missouri which they claim to have been illegal, is a complete estop pel in his ca3e to their plea that the late Ter ritorial Legislature ordering the delegates' ?lection to be held was an illegal one, and that therefore he was illegally chosen. Third. It is plain that their plea that public acts must be done there, as else where, under the authority of valid law? avery frank admission indeed, under the circumstances?amounts to a declaration that the current effert to force the Topeka-made constitution?only voted for by from throe to five hundred abolitionists at an illegal ?lection, as Mr. Grow admitted in his late ?peech?involves fraud upon popular rights and the subversion of all settled principles of law and justice, as now being urged upon Con gress. Fourth. That the majority (of the Commit tee) in their report, if their own abstract of it is a faithful one, have been guilty of fraud on the House and the country in suppressing all allusions to the facts showing the frauds, vio lence, illegal voting, murders, Ac , committed by those who went out there under the aus pices of the Emigrant Aid Societies, which having been in evidence before them, will be eet forth in the minority rej>ort which Mr. Oliver is preparing to make. Fifth. That this majority report, as made, is simply an electioneering document, bearing throngbout its whole length irresistible evi dence that it is merely designed to aid the cause of the Republican party in the approach ing Presidential election, and, to that end, pays not the slightest respect to truth or jus tice in its conclusions and statements; and that, therefore, it deserves to have no more weight with Congress than the allegations in ite " free State ' testimony, whieh Mr. Sher man admitted in the debate on the day be fore yesterday, or yesterday?we forget which ?to be perjury?the allegations against Mr, Oliver. The abstract is as follows : The report shows that as soon as the bill to authorise the Territory of Kansas was passed, a large number of the citizens of Missouri went into the Territory, held cquatter meet ings. and passed resolutions denouncing Abo liticnists, and declaring that slavery existed therein. In the autumn of 1864 a secret political society, called the Blue Lodge, was formed, the plan of operations, oaths, Ac., of which are given by the report. This lodge controlled all the subsequent movements and invasions on the part 01 the Missourians. Ai the election of November 29, 1354, for a delegate in Congress, there was no fraud ex cept in the sparsely settled and remote dis? tricts, where Missouri citizens appeared and voted. Details in relation to these facts are given in the report, which says it is reduced to mathematical precision that seventeen hun dred illegal and non-resident votes were cast at that election by citisens of Mistouri, and the remaining eleven hundred were legal votes. Mr. Whitfield, however, received % plurality votes, and would have been elected without the aid of his Missouri friends. During the winter very great excitement existed on account of the invasion, public meetings being held, and much bitter feeling was manifested. In February, 1855, a census was taken, and the camber of legal voters was ascertained to b? 2,905. It was also discovered that on the 30th of March, 1855, several days before the e'ection. active preparations were ma4e iu Missouri for another invasion A complete organisation wu effected; leaders were ap pointed ; tents, provisions, ammunition, and arms distributed ; the forces were divided into companies in Missouri, and on the day of election at least five thousand citizens of JiiMoari. it is testified, took ap the line of march for Kidmi Cotnpiniei went into every council and representative district in that Territory but one The great mass of testimony taken by the Investigating Committee consists in detailing the acta and saying* of these companies. The committee had before them the poll books, census rolls, Ac., showing who were legal as well as who were illegal voters ; and according to their report, it appears from accurate and almost absolute proofs that of about fix thous and three hundred votea given at that election five thousand were those of nonresidents. The majority of members of both Houses of the Legislative Assembly, the committee say, would have been Free-State men, had there been no invasion of Misaourians The Governor set aside the result of the elections in some of the districts on account of informalities. A new election took place in those districts on the 22d of May ; but this did not affect the result. At these new elections Free-State men were chosen, ezoept in Leav enworth, where there was illegal voting The committee took a large mass of testi mony regarding the proceedings of the Legis lative Assembly, which, they say, are charac terised by recklessness and injustice. They likewise speak of the crimes committed, such as murders and robberies, which, they state, were frequent, and that in no case, with the exception of that of McRae, (a Free-State man,) was there any arrest, indictment, or prosecution for these offences. The report contains many particulars of the condition and events in the Territory of Kan sas prior to the 19th of March last, and de clares that it is clearly and distinctly proven that Samuel J. Jones, the sheriff of Douglas county, was the cause of the reeent disturb ances in which he so prominently figured. The conclusions of the committee are, that each of the elections in Kansas was carried by invasions from Missouri; that the Legislative Assembly ia an illegally constituted body, and therefore has no power to pass valid laws. And for these reasons, the report contends, the enactments of the Legislative Council are void. The election of J. W. Whitfield was not held under any valid law, nor was the elec tion of Reeder held in accordance with law. The committee suggest no remedy. The report treats of obstructions thrown in the w?y of the committee, and of the general violence which prevails in the Territory. It is very voluminous, and is signed by Messrs. Sherman and Howard. The Restoration of the Missouri Restric tion.?No other member of the House has been so bitterly abused and foully slandered by the Republican party press, as Mr Dunn of Indiana; his offence being simply refusing to act on the great question of the day mere ly with the view to make political capital out of it, and in such a way a* that greater and more dsngerous estrangement between the people of the Northern and Southern States must be the consequence. His name is never referred to in the press of that party unacoom panied by denunciations and misrepresenta tions of his course. The truth is, dread of the weight of his talents, and of his manly inde pendence and his powerful eloquence is at the bottom of their prolonged concerted efforts to break him down at home, because he steadily refuses to do their partizan biddings in the discharge of his public trust. They proclaim him a 4' trait' i ' to the cause of "free terri tory. " They threaten all sorts of dire calami ties upon the country, the South particularly, because of the repeal of the Missouri restric tion, which they avow to be the head and front of the offending of the advocates of the right of the people of Kansas to ohoose the manner of institutions under which they will live. Yet not a man of them came forward in the course of this long session to propose or even to advocate sincerely the restoration of that over the removal of which they have b?en pretending to weep, wail and gnash thoir teeth. That task was left for the Hon. (ieorge (i. Dunn, the unrelenting and bitter enemy of the cause of "Free Kansas" according to thoir. malicious misrepresentations of that gentle man's position. Differing as we do from Mr. Dunn upon the Kansas question as widely as the poles, we nevertheless recognise in his conduct as a representative, a degree of manly and intel ligent consistency which challenges our admi ration and respect. That stands out in glar ing contrast with the course of those who while howling for the public ear over what they term the violation of a compact as sa cred as the constitution itself, and an act, too, fraught with dire consequences to the public interest, in private conversation scout the idea of seriously seeking its restoration, as a mat. ter not worth contending for; proclaiming, at the same time, such opinions of it as they were wont to express when its existence seemed likely to prove some slight bar to the execution of their ultimate designs bearing on slavery in the United States. He has been manfully and honestly contending for what they tell the public is the right; while they have been proving to all who have taken the trouble to noto their speeches and votes, that they are not in earnest iu what they have been saying for the past year upon the subject of the Missouri restriction. On the day before yesterday, they fastened it upon Mr. Stephens' substitute for the Topeka-made constitution of Kansas, only to make it cer' tain that, as thus burdened, the friends of the Nebraska Kansas bill would not touch that measure; and then, when the question recurred upon the re establishment of their so (over the left) ardently contended-for mea sure, they voted against it to a man ! The Very Last "Dodge."?The movement of tho Republicans, yesterday, to get in the budget of perjury and exaggerations, raked together so industriously by Measrs. Howard and Sherman to sustain the cause of Abolition* ism in Kansas, was a mere " dodge" to atave off a vote upon Mr Barclay's motion to recon sider?nothing more. Their leaders counted noses, and found that they were surely to have been beaten at the game of their choice bad the queation been put. So they put Mr. Howard forward to get hia report read, which oould not be consummated in a day, as it cov ers a thousand documentary pages Their aim is to give Drs. (ireeley, Stevens, $t al., more time to rub down and splinter up back bones, and to drawn in absent members of their political fraternity who may be reached by telegr ph. We, however, see no reason to anticipate that they can eventually succeed in reversing the action of tho House on the day before yes terday, as the result of their labors on that night, though succeeding in bagging the Hon Mr Rarelay, wa1, that had the question been put yesterday mey would have been beaten by three votes instead of one. Weak in the Knees ?Hearing more er less of thoee around us wondering at the oonrse of Mr. Barclay, of Pa., upon the Abolitionists' proposition for a State government of Kansas, we are wonderstruok in turn at finding per sons usually well informed as to the condition of the House upon important questions, who were not prepared by a knowledge of his re cord, for his laat act of backing water. We doubt not, Mr. B. means rightly; all gentlemen with very weak political knees do Bat what are Messrs. Horace Greeley and Thaddeaf Stevens around Washington for, bottles of baok-bene linement in hand, bat to lacabrate the politioal joints of such gentle men for aach feats of ground and loft j politi oal tumbling as Mr. Barclay performed yas terday morning? He who expected Mr Barclay to stand firmly with the Democracy whan Messrs. Horace Oreeley and Thaddaes Stevens have been around, drumming up re cruits for the polioy of their political party, is a poor judge indeed of Congressional human nature. Naval Engineer*.?Tha following is a cor rect list of those who have been reported to the Secretary of the Navy by the Naval En gineer Board convened in this city on the 14th ult., as qualified for promotion and admission into that branch of the naval service. The list published in all other papers is inoorrect in some particulars: First Assistants to be Chief Engineers : El brigde Lawton, Robert Danby, and Robert H. Long.

The Secretary is understood not yet to have acted on this report. It is therefore possible that it may not be acccpted in all its particu lars. Correction.?In our notice on yesterday of the resignation on the 30ih ult. in the War Department, wo should have said Joseph F_ Brown, instead of Joseph J.; and the salary w as $1,800, and not $1,000, as we printed it.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, Mr. Thompson of Ky , concluded his speech in favor of the bill last reported by Mr. Douglas from the Territories Committee, for the settlement of the Kansas difficulties. Mr. Bigler also addressed the Senate in fa vor of that measure, and Mr Hale opposed it. Mr. Adams moved to strike out the 11th section giving the right of suffrage to all who have filed declarations of intention to become citizens of the United States, Ac. Mr. Crittenden advocated that motion ; and, then they adjourned, Mr. Wilson being mxt entitled to the floor upon the bill. In the House, Mr. Orr withdrew his appeal from the decision of the Chair, admitting the report of the majority of the Kansas Investi gating Committee at that time ; and alter some further proceedings, a portion of the said report was read from the clerk's desk ere they adjourned. Aot? ?In the course of the day's'proceed ings Mr Oliver, of Mo , a member of tne Com mittee of Investigation, stated that no action had been had upon the report, which the gen tleman from Michigan proposed to submit as the report of the committee, in committee. The committee bad separated at Camden, Missouri, with the understanding that no more testimony was to be taken, and the majority of the committee (consisting of Mr Howard, of Michigan, and Mr Sherman, of Ohio,) had proceeded to Detroit, holding sessions and taking testimony at Lexington. Kentucky, St Louis, and afterwards at New York, whilst he was not with them He was not informed, did not know, nor had he any right to antici pate, the character of their report until he arrived in this city on Saturday night, when the contents of the report the majority in tended to submit were first made known to him. It was not i^ossible lor him, therefore, to prepare a minority report without knowing the character of the report of the majority, and, indeed, when he did not know that he would not be able to concur in that majority report. Proceedings of Te-Day. In the 8enate, to-day, a communication was received from the Secretary of State in relation to Fronch spoliations, and ordered to be printed. ? The bill granting the right of way to the St* Louis and Iron mountain railroad over the public grounds of the Arsenal, Ac , at Jeffer son Barracks, was taken up, and after some discus-ion, was passed?yeas 23, nays 17. The Kansas question was then taken up, and Mr. Wade was addressing the Senate against the bill reported last by Mr Douglas from the Territories Committee. In the House, Mr. Mace introduced a bill for the better security of life on the ocean and rivers; referred. He also reported, from the Post Offioe Com mittee, a bill amending the several laws reg ulating the Post Office establishment; com mitted Also, a bill to test the usefulness of J. J. Richardson's atmospheric tolograph; com mitted Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, asked leave to in troduce a resolution fixing the hour of the dai!y meeting of the Houbo hereafter at 11 a. m. Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, objected, giving notice that he would continue so to object un til the other side would agree to act on the Senate's resolution fixing a day for the ter mination of the session. Mr. Houston of Ala., asked leave to move to take up the resolution last above mention ed ; but many objected on the opposition (Re publican) side. The regular order of business?the continu ance of the reading of the report of the ma jority of the Kansas Investigating Committee was called for ; and it was being read from the Clerk's rostrum when the Star went to press. ty At Albany, on Monday, the thermome ter s'ood at 94 degrees in the shade, and on the dhy before at 991 fy Biggs, the Chicago post office robber, h as been fully cumm itted in default of $5,000.

After these the company adjourned to coffee and music in the Pom peian court. POLITICAL ITEMS. The Democratic students of Bowdoin Col lege. Maine, have organise^ a Buchanan and Breckinridge club. The Republicans of the fifth district of 111i noise have nominated Jackson Grimshaw. of Piko county, for Congresr. The Boston Post of Saturday says : "It is i expectcd at the meeting tf the Whig State committee in this city on Wednesday next 8< me definite cours) will be rocommended fur the Massachusetts Whigs to pursue in the ap proaching presidential canvass " The Democrats of Maine have nominated Samuel S. Wells for re election as Governor, and Wm. P. Haines and Joshua A L .well as Presidential Electors at large. The Whigs have nominated Geo. E Patten for Governor. Their convention was decidedly national, be ing adverse to fusion with the Republicans Though we did not "sweep the field" on the 24th. we have come out of the contest gainers in several important particulars. Wo have elected 14 out of 27 councilmen, a gain of 12, and have gained the Street Inspector, Weigh or of Hay, and retained the Gauger. Our cause is still advancing, and the next election will probably show the entire overthrow of Sam.?Norfolk Argus The differences between the Hard and Soft State committees at Albany, are simplv, that the Softs wanted one State convention to be composed of one delegate from each re presentative district, and the Hards wanted two separate State conventions to be holden at the same place, and at the same time, and a union patched up between them. A third proposi tion was submitted by the Hards to have one convention and two delegates from each dis trict, one of whom shall be a Hard, even though the Soft voters therein out-number the Hards ten to one, which the Softs also re jected. The result was that two conventions were announced?that of the Hards at Syra cuse, on the 6th of August and the convention of the Softs, at the tame place on the 30th July: but very recently the Hards have de cided to hold their convention alio on the 30th of July. EUROPEAN GOSSIP. The editor of a democratic journal at Mad rid, was being tried lately for seditious writing, when the public prosecutor commenced to eulogice Queen Isabella, and in a kind of ap peal to the democratic party, demanded if her Majesty was not worthy to occupy the throne of Spain? "No," coolly exclaimed one of the auditors. The prosecutor grew very an gry, and protested that she was, when the murmurs were so loud that the President had the greatest difficulty in appeasing the tumult. Tbe editor was acquitted. The London Globe, of June 13, says: Let us not suppose that the internal d^cords of our American kinsfolk afford any sort of addi tional security that those who administer their affairs will be the more disposed to preserve peace externally. Some of them, on the con trary, might not be sorry to adjourn internal discords, and oompel unanimity by plunging The London Chronicle of June 11, says The Stade dues of the Elbe cannot long be permitted to oontinuc when the Sound dues are effectually dealt with ; and our own local dues on shipping must of necessity be abol ished, as at variance with the imperial policy of the empire. One liberal commercial uni form system must bo eventually more or less adopted throughout the continent, and the results cannot fail to be eminently advanta geous to the industrial and commercial classes of every part of Europe. A writer, signing himself "Americus," says, in a letter to the London Times: 441 would humbly beg tne people of Great Britaiu to re collect, at this solemn moment of international differences, how monstrous the rebellion of the colonies ng lintt the mother country was con sidered at tho time, and how universally its justice is acquiesced in now ; to reoollect that the United States weBt to war with Great Britain, in 1812, to resist the exercise of a claimed right, now admitted to be an une quivocal wrong ; and, by the light of this ex perience, ta ask themselves if it is not barely possible that they may be once more mistaken in regard to the merits of certain questions, which Heaven grunt may not this time lead to war." The London Chronicle of June 14 saya 11 Lord Palmorston and his ministry are re garded equally by all as a mere accidental combination?a temporary necessity, remova ble on the earlient convenient occasion Such un occasion appears to present itself in this American question; and it would be amusing if the interests at stake were not so grave, to watch the struggle between such accomplished strategista." The London Times, on the 2i of May, thus spoke of the metropolitan preachers: " Ex oept here and there a newly caught Irishman, there is positively not one prsacher of the most ordinary eloquence in all London Go any where, to the best churches, where the selec tion has been unfettered and the patronage honestly exercised, and you will hear unex ceptionable statements illustrated by apt texts, but in a whole sermon not a word to quicken your pulse or give you the feeling of an open ed understanding." Next morning, May 3d, the Times solicted of the clergy summaries of their thanksgiving sermons, and the London clergy, with wonderful forbearance toward their assailant, reported their discourses requested The Rochester Democrat gives the fol lowing as a certain oure for fleas on dogs : ?' Soak the dog for five minutes in oamphens, and then set fire to him. The effect is inaUu taneous." _____ ?Last week, six thousand pounds of yel low snuff were shipped from Boston for Mel bourne, to be exchanged for the yellow gold of Australia.
