The Intelligencer contains an elaborate and interesting account of the present difficulties in Washington Territory, the point of which falls with force against Governor Stevens. The 9vion, commenting on the fact that the reports?majority and minority?of the Kansas Investigating Committee, with the evidence, will make a volume of a thousand pages', conoludes that it is to bo about the most ponderous electioneering document ever published. The same paper recounts many recent important accessions to the Demooratio party from the Old Line Whig ranks, which gives it3 editor great joy. It also shows that thecharge of fillibusterism does not lay against Mr. Buchanan. An Interesting and Important Letter. This morning's mail brought us a slip from the Nashville Union office, containing the following letter to the editor of that journal. It is from the pen of Gen Jackson's adopted son and executor, in whose keeping|his memory rests most appropriately. It has been drawn out evidently by F P. Blair's sinister publi cation of garbled extracts from letters written by the hero and sage of the Hermitage As ?o comments of ours can possibly add force to its plain and sensible statements, we repub lish it without them : Hermitage, June 2(5, 1856. Gentlemen : Be kind enough to give the followirg letter insertion in your paper : Within the last few weeks, several individ ual*, claiming to have been personal friends of Gen. Andrew Jackson, hate published let ters addressed to themselves, under the seal of confidence and friendship, which were never intended for publication, and are cal culated to wound the feelings of many per sons who stood high in the estimation of Gen. Jackson to the closo of his life. The object of tbe?e publications is so manifestly for the advancement of petty, personal ambition, and to irjure or destroy those who stand in the way of those mousing schemes, that no good motive can possibly be attributed to those who are gratifying a morbid public appetite. It seems that they are willing, for the gratifica tion of their own passions, to raise the current of the past, open fires, over which the ashes have long since gathered, and destroy, as far their puny efforts can accomplish it, the uni versal veneration with which the name of Gen. Jackson is regarded. The undersigned, as the adopted son, execu tor, and trusted friend c.f Gen. Jackson, pro tests most solemnly against this unsc;upulous use of the private and confidential corres pondence of his father, and he appeals most confidently to the public to sustain him in this protest, he, himself, was the repository of most of his father s private papers, and has never consented to the publication of any of then, becauso ho believes that no such ad dition cub be mado, with justice to the memo ry of the deceased until the men who served with him have parsed from the stage of ac tion. It would, however, bo unfair to the feelings of those who may have been touched by the extracts or full letters from Gen Jack son, heretofore published, to withhold the tes timony of tbe undersigned, that un to the close tf his life he entertained for President Polk and Hon. James Buchanan the highest esteem and affection. In in.iny conversations during his declining years, when in the full freedom of fireside ease he spoke freely of their eminent services and moral worth, on no occasion did he ever intimate to his family that his confidence in them had abated, or his kindly feelings towards them undergone any change It is well known to all who were well acquainted with Gen. Jackson, that he clung with intense pertinacity to the interests of those '? whom he regarded as friends?as somewhat dependants, and whom he had raised up by his patronage " These persons frequently (as can and might easily be shown) appealed earnestly to him for assistance in ad vancing their own schemes and views even to the close of bis life. Whilst suffering under a painful, withering disease, and earnestly i resaod by every artful suggestions he would nave been more than human, if he had not permitted expressions of momentary irrita tion to crccp into private letters, and the fiuit of their expression was not in him who wrote, but rather in those whom he unwisely trusted. The letter of Gen. Jackton in regard to Mr. Buchanan written in February, 1845, (dated 2b:h.) ixtracts from which have been recently published, is precisely one of the character, and written under tLe circumstances above alluded to, and did not contain any deliberate conviction of his mind, as is amply shown by hia cordial treatment of Mr Buchanan during his whole administration?hia appointment to Kussia?bia subsequent recommendation of him to others?and tbe fireside conversations with bis family, to which I have before al luded to. It is not the intention of the undersigned in this publication, to interfere iu the political conflicts of the day, or to do anything further than to protect the reputation and famo ot bis father, and preserve the consistency and bar iuony of a character dear to the whole Ameri can people A.ndhew Jackson.

WA8HIHGT0* WXWS AHD GOSSIP Our inniversary ?To-day the Star enters upon the fourth year of its publication under our auspices. Its career has been one of un preoedented prosperity. No other daily jour nal published in a city of the population of Washington, in eithor hemisphere, having ever attained to its present circulation, which continues stoidily to increase. While it has I some fifty thousand daily readers in the Dis trict of Columbia and the surrounding coun try, it goei to every quarter of the Union in large numbers, and beyond the limits of the United States to wherever there are Ameri I cans residing who tako interest in American public affair*. | As a matter of course, it i> now the main advertising sheet of tho region, as whatever it published in that way cannot fail to me?t the eye of nine-tenths of those around the ad vertiser who read any newspaper whatever. Our business customers tell us wonderful sto- I ries of the results of advertising in the Star's columns. It not unfrequently happens that ere the sun goes down upon the publication of the Star, patrons whose advertisements ap peared iu it for the first time on that day, I will rush to the offico and order them out; I because overwhelmed with applications at tracted from reading this journal. A busi ness firm whose address we have, advertised not long since, in another city paper for a fortnight, for a storage room within certain limit#, without obtaining an applicant Con cluding to try the Star, six premises were of fered to them on the evening of the first ap pearanco of their advertisement in its col- I umns! I While we claim credit for the industry and energy with which tho Star has been coc ductcd, and without which its fate would have been that of all its predecessors do pending upon the patronago of tho pub- I lie of Washington especially, as it does, I we have to thauk our fellow-citizens of all I parties for the kind sympathy with whiob our efforts to make a journal especially in dispensable to them have been greeted, and I to as3ure them that we shall continue to fur- I ni.-h them daily with precisely what nearly I all of them are eagerly anxious to know. P. S. As illustrative of the result of adver- I tising in the Star, wo hare to mention that I after advertising for some time for the heirs of a certain John White, in other city papers I without receiving a reply, a Washington mer chant inserted a similar advertisement in the Star, in answer to which be has received, through this office, at leaet two hundred ap plications by mail from all quarters of the United btatcsaud Canada; not yet having re' ceived the first application in reply to either of his advertisements for these heirs published elsewhere ! His address is at the service of any one who may question the truth of this statement. The National Anniversary.?Tomorrow being tho great national holiday no paper I will be issued from this office, in order that all connected with the Scar establishment may participate in the celebration of the day in city or town, op river or down, as suits their several inclinations. We are now on the eve of the eightieth an niversary of the memorable day upon which the birth of American liberty was first pro- I claimed to the world, and wo believe, notwith- I standing the gloomy auguries of approaching I national dissensions and calamity put forth by those with whom, in many cases, " the wish I is father to tho thought"?notwsthstanding I some few clouds lowering around the political'! horizon?we believe the coming anniversary I will le more earnestly and generally celc- I brated than aiiy previous one, and that ut no time has the inestimable political blessings I secured to us by that day's work been so tho- I roughly understood and appreaiatcd. No public celebration of the day is to be I made in Washington, but an unusually large I number of private re-unions and demonstra- I tions are on foot; and taking into considera- I tion the intense beat of the weather, we are I not sure but that our citizens exercise a wise I discretion by indulging their patriotism in I select groups, quietly, and in the shade rather | than by any collective display in the glare of I the sun. In the neighboring States of Maryland and I Virginia, the day is to be celebrated with un- I precedented spirit, and we presume many of I our citizens design participating with their I neighbors in their several gatherings at va- I rious points Ample facilities are afforded I for this purpose in the various excursion trips I advertised in the Star, and to this depart- I uient wo refer our readers, and take leave of I Lheiu until Saturday, when we hopo to be I able to record the enjoyment upon all handi of an undoubted good time, unmarred by ao cidcnt or unpleasantness of any description. The Last Dodge of the Humbug ?The " American" State Convention in session very I recently at Worcester, Massachusetts, having I pronounced, by a largo majority, for Colonel I Fremont, the re-election of Mr. Sumner to I the U S. Senate has become a matter of cer- I lainty ; as, combined with the Republican party, there can be no doubt of their power to return him once more. It strikes U3, there- I fore, that the game of desperation in the mat ter of his bodily injuries at the hands of Mr. I Brooks need pot be played much longer. In deed, nothing more is to be rnalo by playing possum. So we presume the trial of Mr Brooks, under the pending indictment against bim, will shortly come off Mr. Sumner, it will be recollected, was well enough to testify before tho Urand Jury a few days since, nni subsequently, it is being said over the city, to be the lion of a delightful strawberry party, given to him at 41 Silver Spring," where he continues a guest. But the poor man is not well enough, it seems, to permit the trial of Mr. Brooks to come off at once So, at his re quest, that has been put off until such time as be may be in condition to take his place in the witness stand, wherein, we presume, he wilj be compelled to face proof which will hardly tally with his testimony before the House committeo that investigated into his affair with Mr. B But our present purpose is but to suggest the propriety of his getting better at a very early day, now that the managers of the American party State Convention at Wor sester, Mass., have declared that they are willing to join the Republicans in re-electing him to the U. S. Senate. How this World it given to L The New York Tribune is positively in ecsta sies over the manner in which the Presidential popularity of Lieut. Col. Fremont is swelling ! Ihe whole North, according to that journal, is on fire about him?-there being every evi dence, it says, that Le will almost walk over the course unopposed. Now, in representing his prospects to be sueh in their judgment, the oonductors of that journal are deliberately imposing on the credulity of their readers. They know full well, and very recently in an unguarded moment admitted in their columns, that he has about as much chance to be elected to the Presidency of the United States as tho man in the moon. By way of carrying ou' the impudent humbuggery of their present representations of his strength before tho peo. pie, they pretend to believe, not only that eleotoral tickets for him wiH be run in every Southern State, but that he will prove a3 strong in them as the Democratic ticket in the non-slaveholding States ! We call atten tion to this childish misrepresentations of tho Tribune of the true condition of the canvass, a? capitally illustrating the extravagancy of the bastard Republicanism of the day?it be ing univeisally understood among the Repub licans of Congress that his chance of success is not one in ten thousand. Orange and Alexandria Railroad?Wo are pleased to note the growing prosperity of this work. It forms with its adjunct, the Vir ginia Central Railroad, an entire lino by rail between Washington 'and Richmond, (save the six miles by water from this to Alexan dria,) and is the only direct route from Wash ington and the cities north of it to the princi pal Virginia watering places. The cars arc now daily crowdcd with passengers, yielding a very handsome revenuo to the company; indeed, we arc informed that the receipts of the current year will excecd tho sum of $250,000. Tho company havo a charter for, and are now engaged in, the construction of an additional link to their road, to connect it with Lynch burg, where it will be in direct communication with the railroads of Tennessee, Georgia, Ala bama, and Mississippi. To effect this highly important objcct, a distanco of only sixty miles, (about one-third of which is airoady d< ne,) the company have issued their coupon bonds, secured by a mortgage upon the whole work, which are now for sale in the market, interest payable semi-nnnually in New York. These bonds are selling at exceedingly low rates, considering the unquestionable value of the security and the promptness with which the company has always paid the interest, and we would invite the attention of.persons to them having money to invest. The bonds are in the hands of Messrs. Riggs <k Co ,of whom more detailed information can be had. Wash ington city is greatly interested in tho prose cution of this work and its early connection with the great suuthern chain of railroads at Lynchburg. The Amendments.?The two amendments adopted by the Senate last night to the Kan sas State bill, of importance, wero that of Mr. Adams, confining the right of suffrage there to native and naturalized citizens of the United States ; and that of Mr Gcyer, abol ishing tho test oath law, and those against free discussion enacted by the Territorial Le gislature. * Passed.?The Kansas State bill?that of Mr. Toombs, with amendments?reported last by Mr. Douglas, passed the Senate at 8 a m. this morning?yeas 33, nays 12 Monetary and Commercial ?The following quotations of bonds, stocks, and land warranta were furnished us to-day (July 3) by Swee ney, Rittenhouse, Fant Co., bankers : BONDS AND CITY STOCKS. tVaahlnctnu Corporation 6 per < eut.

Stockton's farm, N. J , was thrown from a horse at Princeton on Friday and instantly killed. ....Cnsey, recently hung in California, says the Newark Advertiser, owned six lots of land situated in that city, valued at about ?600. ... .Many years ago?about 1804?Mr. Nich olas Longworth of Newark, N J., removed to Cincinnati and began to study law in the of fice of Judge Burnet. He practiced his pro fession for a number of years, investing his income in lands and lots in the vicinity of tbe city. He has been a fortunate speculator. Mr Cist relates the anecdote of his once de lending a man accuscd of horse-stealing. The only fee the man could give were two second hand copper stills. These Mr. Longworth exchanged with one Joel Williams, a large property-holder, for thirty-three acres of land fronting on Western Row, and which, at this time, is worth two millions of dollars. Mr. Longworth has acquired a very large property, and is supposed by some to be next in wealth to Astor of Now York. This gentleman ii the pioneer wine manufacturer of Cincinnati. For m*ny year* he bag been spending large sums in cultivating our native grape? lie has cultivated and tested over one hundred kinds of native grapes, brought from ail parts of the United States. A long series of expe riments has proved the Catawba to be the best native grape for the manufacturg of wine, and in 1851 Mr. Longworth had vineyards in the vicinity of Cincinnati covering one hun dred and fifteen acres. All the fixtures for the making and keeping of wine have required a largo outlay of capital. In ordinary years he makes about throe or four hundred gallons to the acre, and in very fruitful years has m?de five hundred. Mr. Longworth has em ployed experienced wine makers from the old countries. POLITICAL ITEMS. James O. llolliday, Esq., of Portsmouth, has been appointed elector for tho Norfolk district by tho American party. Hon. Uri Osgood has been nominated fcr Glongross by the Democrats of the Third dis trict of Illinois. A banner va< strung across Broadway, in Albany, bearing the following motto : "Wel come the "Pathfinder" to tho White House!'' The Bellefontaine Gazette, of Logan county, Ohio, an Old Line Whig paper, has come out Democratic, and run up tbe name of Buchan an and Breckinridge. The friends of Mr. Fillmore in New Orleans fired a salute of fifty-one guns upon the an< nouncement by telegraph of his arrival in New York. The citizens of Fauquier county, Va , held a meeting on the 23th alt at Piedmont station to express their indignation at the alleged cwnduct of Mr. J C. Underwood, in pretend' ing to represent Virginia in the Republican Convention at Philadelphia Tho meeting adopted resolutions discarding all sectional parties, adhering to the constitution and the Union as it is, and denouncing as a libel any attempt to make an impression that free soil or abolition doctrines are gaining a foothold in Virginia. A committee was appointed to convey the sentiments of the meeting to Mr. Underwood, and to inform him "that they deem it just p.nd advisable that he should leave the State as speedily as he can find it in his power to do so." Advices from Havana of the 25th ult. state that dispatches of an important charac ter had been forwarded to the fleet at Vera Cruz It was generally supposed in Havana that if Comonfort did not pay the Cash a bom bardment would be immediately commenced, in pursuance of a plan hatohod in Europe.
