EVENING STAR. W A BHIWPTOIT CI T T: WEDXEIDAT July 9, 1Mb. (fT* AdvartUco^uts should be banded In by 1* o'clock, m., otherwise they may not appear until the nex day. To Political Club*.?Political clubs will led the arrangements of the Star office for printing their circulars, addressee, arguments, pamphleti, Ac., as complete as those of any ether printing office in the United States. They may rely upon baying such work done at the Ntar ? ffice in a satisfactory manner as to style and price, and in the shortest possible time. Be sere to gire us a call before making arrangements elsewhere. SPIRIT 0? THE MOHHIH0 PEE88 The Unton, di?cussing the plans of the Re publican paity for the campaign, says with much force: " They do not want the country to know that Mr. Senator Sumner was never seriously Injured, or that he is now in the enjoyment of hie customary health. They do not want the pending difficulties in Kansas settled ^in an equitable and amicable manner. Without the bleeding Senator or the bleeding Terri tory, they feel persuaded that it would be worse than folly to solicit the suffrages of the people, even in the northern States, in behalf of a candidate who, it is shrewdly suspected, owes his nomination as much to successful litigation as to successful exploration. Ac cordingly, intifnutinw i? aiven thai the i-o in*raa* le brain of the distinguished Massa chusetts Senator has softened, or is about te acften, and that it is absolutely necessary? and We what purpose wo need not add?that he should not be produced to his mourning and sympathetic friends until after the first Tues day in NovemLer next Until after the ex piration of this day, Black Republicanism cannot and will not consent for Kansas to repose in peace and security. Kansas paci fied. and the people iu the full enjoyment of the rights which alone can be secured by the enforcement of the great principle imbodied in the act which created the Territory, and there would be an end to the manufacture of Kansas horrors and Kansas outrages?the great staple of abolition speeches and abolition editorials would be withdrawn from the market?the demand for Sbarpe * rifles would cease?the purses of very rich and very fanatical old gentlemen would close with a convulsive clasp?elderly ladies might re turn to their knitting with decency and com fort?their spiritual guides might be peisuaded to remember their sacred calling?and thou sands and tens of thousands of wretched dupes might recover their reason in time to cast their ballots at the presidential election in accord ance with the dictates of good sense and sound patriotism. " Under no circumstances will the Black Republican leaders consent to the pacification of Kansas before the presidential election takes place. The bill which they recently foroed through the House was forced with a knowl edge that its manifest injustice and absurdi ties would insure its deleat in the Senate. The kind of reception which will be extended to Mr Toombs's bill?conceived as it is in the largest spirit of justice, liberality, and conces sion?need not be foretold." We knew, of <ur own knowledge, that their leaders have staked their all on the desperate game cf defeating any and every proposition to quiet the Kansas matter. They design moving heaven and earth, as it were, to pre ?ent Congress from consummating anything intended to restore the Territory to its proper oondition, in the belief that the only possible chance existing for Fremont's election is locked up in the success of their design to keep up the excitement about the slavery question until November next. They will vote to a man to-day, in the House, to ameud the Senate's substitute fcr the Topeka-adopted constitution by adding to it a clause restoring the Missouri restriction, though more than half of them, in private conversation, scout the idea of its restoration, as involving the de feat of their ultimate schemes against slavery In the States. The question of their success depends on the northern friends of Fillmore lu the House. If they fail to keep the prom ise of Mr. Fillmore's Albany and Rochester ?peeches? thus proving that the sentiments then and there uttured by him were designed only for political effect in Maryland, Ken tucky, Tennessee, and Louisiana?the action of the Senate will te defeated, not otherwise. The Intelligencer says cf the result of the Brooks trial yesterday : ?However decided our own feeling? may have been in the political and personal bear ings of the case, we could not, with our fixed conceptions of propriety and our habitual rev erenoe for the sanctity of the place which was the scene of the violence, fail to partake deeply of the sentiment common to this whole oommunity. Yet, unwilling to add even the weight of our humble opionion to the inflamed state of the public mind, we contented our selves with tie simple expression of our pro found regrtt at bo painful an occurrence, and thenceforth maintained a studied silence in regard to it. But the minister of the law having now spoken, sentence been pronounced, and the case remitted to the public judgment, we think it due to ourselves and our readers that we should express, with lens restraint than we imposed on ourselves in the first tempest of the excitement, our opinion of the transaction. And touching the judgment of the Court, we are bound to say that it has cer tainly fallen short of the public anticipation? not the anticipation, still less the wish, of partisans or sealots, but of the calm and judi cious?men who are capable of respecting the wounded sensibilities of a high spirited gen tleman. not less than public decorum and the dignity and immunity of the Senator and the Senate house " PERSONAL. .... Mr. J. 1'ierce, a brotaer of tbo dent, is at Willards'. ....Judge Frost, of Louisiana, is at Wil lards bote!. .... Gen. Gadsden has returned to Charles ton, #n route for Mexico. .... B. Taylor, Esq., nephew of the late President Taylor; Hon. Win. Huntington, of Connecticut; and Hon. J. L Carew, of Mich igan, are at Willards'. Daniel Judd, ex member of the Cin cinnati City Council, who was appointed po lice officer some three or four weeks ago. has resigned his appointment to the hands of the Mayor, for the reason "that if he honestly did bis duty, he should have the whole police force of the city down upon him." ....A correspondent of the Manchester (Ingland; Guardian thus decribes Mr Dallas, the American Minister, as he appeared at the Queen s Drawing R<x?m, June 2U : "Mr. Dal las moved in the gay crowd l/ien distingue as was said of Lord Castleragh. at the Congress of Vienna, by the simplicity ot bis entire. Mr. Dallas is the most venerable of all the American ministers that I remember. If you saw him setting upon the platform of the W es leyan conference, you would indistinctively turn to him and dtclare that ho was the fittest man to preside ovar their deliberations. In deeed, bis long hair of silvery white, his rage yet amiable expression, bis white neckcloth and blach clerical looking dress, completely realited une s idea ot' the president of a relig ious conclave. Mr Dallas paid his respects to her Majesty in a black coat of Quaker-like cut, white waistcoat buttoned almost up to his throat, white neckcloth and black knee breeches, and black silk stockings ; and as his tall jet venerable figure was secu in the diplo matic circle, closely followed by two young attaches similarity attired, the Americans might have been proud of their miniver; for a more gentlemanly man, or one whose bear ing waa indicative of more aimple dignity and self-respect, waa not present at the drawing joom." Washington itiwb and gossip. Stuck.?The New York Tribune squeals like a 'tuck pig over the passage of the Toombs Kansae bill by the Senate. Less than a week ago, " H. G." (Horace Greely) wrote to his journal from this point an elaborate exposition of what he (" we") demanded and required in the settlement of the Kansas affair. Never did planter lord it in his demands and orders more dogmatically over his gang of tasked cctton-picking hands, than did Hor ace in that letter over his forces in the House. We demand this, and we require that, to bo done by the Congress of the United States? was the style in which he announced his ulti matum If be bad held a bill of sale on every mother's son in Congress, and a fee simple title for every acre of land in Kansas, he could not have essayed more coolly to ex plain precisely how he had determined the thing should be done, under pain of bis dis pleasure and instant vengeance if not so done in all particulars. But the closeness of the vote by which the House passed his Topeka constitution?for it is understood to have been framed principally by himself and a dosen just such politicians' and sent out from this city to be swallowed by the Kansas abolition convention as nearly whole as would comport with the purpose of di?guising its paternity?and the now evident fact that half a dozen of those who voted for it will eleo vote for the Senate's Kansas-paci fication bill, have had tho effect of changing the tone of the Tribune on the subject, not a little. That journal now begs hard. It, in effect, beseeches the northern members for God's sake not to deprive Fremont and Day ton of the political capital involved in keep ing open the Kansas question until after tho Presidential election! Admitting that the provisions of tho Senate's bill are all wise, fair and proper, it vehemently insists that those to be called on to execute them, will be, to a man, perjurers, ballot-box stuffers, ruf fians and traitors to their obligations. Yes* every man of them !?and will be aided by a conspiracy, to which everybody on the Mis souri river, in Missouri, will be parties! The President, aocording to the Tribune, will de liberately seek to nullify the intent of the law, and every man to bo appointed to carry it into effect will of course follow his example ! Or, in other words, it argues that everybody but its own immaculate coterio are perjurers, traitors, cut-throats and eeoundrels?not fit to be trusted in any way. It plumply 1?b in affirming that it ha^ news that tho Missourians are already again pouring into Kansas. This story is of a piece with its last from its great manufactory of Kansas-affairs roorback, which avers that tho border Missonrians had forcibly broken up a Methodist conference, and tarred and feath ered its venerable president; and also with its last Washington roorback,saying tfcat some southern member had threatened the Hon. Mr. Brcnton of Indiana, (a gentleman who is paralised in part,) with personal violence, if daring to deliver his prepared speech on tho Kansas question. But it will require longer and louder "shrieks for freedom" than the mild and gentlo Tribune can squeal from this hour until doomsday, we fancy, to prevent the enactment of the Senate's bill by the House; or the sign* are deceptive. The only serious doubt arises from tho un mistakable disinclination towards it enter tained by the delegate from Kansas and some of the Missouri members, to whom, so far, it appears to be almost as distasteful as the To peka-adopted constitution itself 44 Taken Water."?The absquatulation of Senator Sumner, on the day before the trial of Mr. Brooks came off before the Criminal Court, has generated a hearty luugh over Washington. The truth is, it would never have done for the Republican cause to have submitted him to a cross examination upon the witness stand; as it was well understood ar>;usd the court-house that such an event would as surely have exploded the peculiar statements of hi* remarkable testimony given before the iiou^ellnvestigating Committee, as his appearance under the gaze of the public would have exploded the trick of making him out, for political effect, a dreadfully injured man Gentlemen who saw him on the morn ing of the day before yesterday, as he was abvut leaving Washington in the cars, con ceive that he never looked in oetter condition. Yet, as it seems that those who have him in custody are determined to play out to tho end the game of public deception with reference to his condition, we shall not be surprised to learn that he enters Boston on crutches, with head shaved and bound up, and limbs trembling as though bending under the weight of a half a century of premature years. The distant reader may rely on it, that if hii appearance in the court house at the recent trial would not have exploded the humbug, he would surely have been there to confront his assailant. The act of running him off at such a time, pretty much as the thing is done on the under-ground railroad, involves posi tive proof of the false pretences and hum bug gery of the current Republican-party repre sentations conceming his condition ; and it is so appreciated in this city. Internal improvements.?in consumma ting the action of the Senate upon the vetoed internal improvement bills, the House have not surprised us, as distasteful as that action is to us. Had the chamber been full, about two thirds of the Democratic members would have been recorded against the bills?the usual proportion of the party against such legisla tion. When the Democrats have the major ity in the House, the steady adherence of that two-thirds to the party's principle on the In ternal Improvement question is always suffi cient to prevent the consummation of such legislation over tho President's negative. In the present House, however, the democracy are in a hopeless minority ; and their two thirds against indiscriminate internal im provements, are not sufficient to hold in check the one-third representing districts interested in obtaining such favors from the General Government and an unanimous opposition. I here are about ono hundred and forty such bills behind, which will doubtless be pressed with forty-horie power We even expect to find the Sumner und Brooks huuibug kicked aeide by the Republicans themselves, sunt certmonie, for the balance of the session, to make way for this species of special legis lation. To thpse one hundred and forty bille the majority of the House Committee on Com merce will gladly add twice as many more, if they think they can engineer them through over vetoes, under the presure of the previous question. The only question which will be taken into consideration in connection with the subject, will be?how much and how many will the Demoorata who yesterday voted to paw the three bills orer the vetoes, stand, withomt winking, flinching, or at least bolting. Those bent on driving through the New fire bill and a dosen other very nice little af fairs to somewhat the same end, will, of course, endeavor to make their enactment necessary to secure that of many of these internal im provements bills. So there is to be a very high time of it indeed, in Washington, for the balance of the session. It is not wonderful with such " rare chances" ahead, that the joint resolution fixing a day for the termina tion of the session is just now being voted a bore by the House. Bless us, what a lobby will be on hand by the opening of next week! The promulga tion, by telegraph, of the news of the action of yestorday on the vetoed bills has, doubt less, started hundreds of solicitous public spirited and patriotic gentlemen who take pe culiar interest in legislation on money bills, to packing up in great haste for a visit to Wash, ington. So they go. In the mean while, the enactment of these bills by two-third votes will create, as they should, wide-spread dis satisfaction among the real democracy of the South and the Atlantic coast States generally. The only answer to their upbraidings will be to point to tho fact that the only possibility of stemming the rushing current of latitudina rianism lies in the triumph of the Democratic party in November, by such a majority as will make it certain that its usual two-thirds, op posed to wild schemes of internal improve ment by the Ueneral Government, will here after prevent tho enactment of such bills over Executive vetoes by a clear two-thirds' vote of tho whole House. The Usual Book Donating Resolution. ? The action of the House, on Monday upon the resolution providing for tho expenditure of something like S170 000 from tho treasury in tho way of donating certain books to the new members, is worthy of noto. It was first pro posed (by way of amendment) to let tho new members take any books they pleased, each to the amount of his sharo of the aggregate appropriation. That was voted dtwn. Most of the Republican members voted for it; and then, like a flock of sheep jumping a fence gap, followed each other in single file, hopping demurely over on to 'tother side, amid the laughter of their opponents. Thui they de feated this amendment, which should have been passed, if this custom of book donating is to be kept up through all time. Our plan is to do away with all such u per quisites" in paying members of Congieas for their services, and forthwith to place them on fair salaries If they were paid each five thou sand dollars per annum, the national treas ury would bo an enormous gainer in the end Their present pay is insufficient to allow them to lay up a dollar, if they have f.imilies st home, and, as a consequence, establishments to keep up there, as nine-tenths of them have Most of them are at tho period of life when it is their duty to be laying up property. They cannot fulfill that duty to those depending on them as at present paid, except by specula ting directly or indirectly on the action of some branch or other of tho government. We refer to thoso of them who enter Congress poor. It is our sincere belief that if they had courage to pay themselves a fair compensation bylaw, public opinion would applaud them for eo doing; if, but because it would not be long ere all realized that the change we here pro pose bade fair to lave many millions In tbe ag gregate of the yea'rs appropriations of public lands, money directly from the national treas ury, and money from the pockets of classes of the people who bear the brunt of special leg islation such as Congress at times enacts. The Wheel Within the Wheel.?A gentle man of Gainsborough, who uses only the ini tial D.,but has inclosed his card to the editor of the London Star, writes to that paper, stating that he is a near relative of Mr. Crampton, and thus terminates his letter : " I have most strongly felt, and firmly be lieve, that the public interest have been over looked for private considerations. Sir Philip Crampton, baronet, (of whom the late Ameri can minister is the only son,) and the Earl of Clarendon, during the Earl's vice-royalty in Ireland, as well as in former times, when his lordship (then Mr Villiers) occupied a situa tion in the Customs in Dublin, were on terms of the most cordial and intimate friendship; through bis lordships'* interest Mr. Crampton first entered on the diplomatic service, through his lordship s influence Mr. Crampton was romoted to that exalted position which he as recently filled, and in which, through his lordship's exertions, he has been retained until the President of tho United States has been compelled to dismiss him, although the voice of our country and the honorable feel ing of tbe majority of our countrymen felt that Lord Clarendon ought at onco to have recalled him. I repeat, sir, and I fully be lievo, that the public good has been sacrificed to Lord Clarendon's private friendship, and, therefore, although personally I shall feel in clined to spare Mr. Crampton on the ground ot our relationship, I put you in possession of these facts " A Point in th9 Testimony ?Yesterday. in his testimony before the Criminal Court, in the trial of Mr. Brooks, of S. C., Senator Toombs stated explicitly that Mr. Sumner's desk was in its place after Mr. S. had arisen and wa3 standing erect. No witness for the prosecution contradicted this statement from Mr. T. Now, the Republicans have been en deavoring to create tho impression that Mr. fluumcr wao pinioned hy hi* desk, and over turned it from its fastenings in his effort to riso. This misrepresentation of tho fact in that particular, which is an important one, is thus set at rest by the uncontradicted testi mony of Senator Toombs. Independent Support ?We have seen a letter from a respectable gentleman residing at Jefferson City, Mo , from which we extract the following, showing the manner in which Col. Benton is aiding the election?over the left ? of Mr. Buohanan: "Col. Benton spoke here yesterday. His speech was mainly a laudation of Fremont and Benton, and contained only a mere allusion to Buchanan, representing him as favorablo to the central route for the Pacific road." The Current Operations of tho Treasury Department.?On yesterday, the 8th of July, there were of Treasury warrants entered on the books of the Department? For the redemption of Stocks.... 527,875 20 For the Treasury Department... 744 93 For the Interior Department....* 7,549 41 For Customs 118 227 10 War warrants received and en tered 6,790 91 On account of the Navy 46,532 63 From miscellaneous sources 3,559 85 A London Journal says : On Thursday week as Mario was preforming at the Lyceum the rope from the flies, containing a heavy iron candelabra, weighing upwards of ten pounds, suddenly snapped, and the machine descending like a shot from a cannon, fell on the stage, glancing along the person of Signor Mario, and breaking into a thousand fragments at his feet, with a report like thunder, that completely electrified the house. CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDING!. In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, the substitute for the Topeka-adopUd constitution of Kansaa, reported from the Ter ritories Committee by Mr. Douglas, was fur ther debate i by that gentleman end Messrs Oollamer, Pearoe, Hale and Trumbull, ere being adopted as an amendment to the House Kansas State-constitution bill. In the course of this debate Messrs Coll a mor, Trumbull and Hale offered amendments which were severally voted down. As amended, the said bill passed, ere they adjourned In the House, the bill for the enlargement of the Milwaukio and Detroit customs and court houses and for the construction of a build ing for those purposes at Dabuque, with the Commerce Committee'? pending amendment thereto, was committed, on motion of Mr Letcher, to the Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union. ? The bills for the improvement of the South west pass (mouth) of the Mississippi river, of the St Clair fiats, and of the St. Mary's river, (the first in Louisiana and the others in Michi gan) having been returned from the Senate, which body had passed them over the vetoes of the President, they were duly taken up.

Senator Jones, of Tennessee, has declared for Buchanan. Rufus Choate and George Ashman, of Ma*!., will support Buchauan. The Maine Republ ican Stato Convention which met at Bangor on the 8th, nominated Hannibal Ilamilin for Governor. The Springfield American run up the Fill more flag on the 21 inst., and died the next day. The Albany Statesman estimates the num ber of Fillmore papers in the State at over fifty. Not one of them, it adds, has deserted Ex-Presi lent Martin Van Buren has written a strong letter, in favor of Mr. Buchanan's election, to the Tammany Society. The Detroit Free Press states that three of the Whig candidates for Governor in Michigan since 1843 are now supporters of Buchanan and Breckinridge, and the coalition candidate for the sauie oflico, F. J. Littlejohn, supports the Democratic nominees. The Free Soilers of Vermont hava adopted the nomination of the American party in State Convention, and have conceded to the same party the organisation of the State govern ment They have formed an electoral ticket, however, in which they recognize the nomi nation of Fremont and Dayton. The St. Louis Republican says : Events now transpiring in Missouri, muke it exoeedingly desirable that the people should know the ex act relation between the Know Nothings and the Benton party?not so much with reference to the election of Governor?for that, we take it, so fas as Mr. Benton is concerned, is al ready settled?ho will bo beaten by a large mwjority?but moro particularly with refer ence to the election of two Senators next win ter. Mr. Wines, the Know Nothingcandidate for Congress in Major Phelps' district, has de clined in favor of Emerson, the Benton candi dote?and it is sail that an arrangement will be made in due time, between Messrs. Perry man and Stevenson, running against Sam Caruthcrs, with reference to the Senatorial election next winter. Tin Ahfbat between Pleasants aj*d Governor Wise ?Hugh R Pleasants, a brother of the late John Hampden Pleasants, atid formerly editor of the Richmond Penny Post, on Monday morning went into the Exec utive Chamber of the Mate Capitol, where Governor Wise was engaged writing, and, takiug a seat by invitation of the Governor, said, after a brief period, " I thought Giz zard-Foot was here." Gov. Wise smilingly replied, " I am the man Pleasants, rising from his scat, and approaching the table where the Governor sat, said " By God, I did not know you ; and so you are Ebo Shin and Gis zard-Foot?" "I am," remarked Gov. Wise, with a smile, " and you are ilugh Pleasants. Pleasants thereupon commenced abusing the Governor without any provocation whatever, when the Governor ordered him to leave the room but be refused to do so. The Governor then rose from his seat, approaching Pleas ants, and taking hold of him, endeavored to push him out. Pleasants resisted, squared off, and placed himself in an attitude to strike, when the Governor struck him with his fist under the left eye. and cut him pretty severe ly. He then seized Pleasants by the arm, turned him round, and kicked him. At this time the messenger of the Executive came up and had Pleasauts removed by order of the Governor. It is said that Pleasants was in toxicated. Ly Considerable excitement prevails in Hampton, Va., in consequence of the shooting of the town sergeant, Lively, on Saturday night last, by a man named Mahone. The officer was engaged in dispersing a gang of | slaves on the premises of Mahone, with whom the latter was carrying on an illicit traffio, when Mahone aeixed a gun and shot the officer dead. ??^^NOTICK-AN ADJOURNED Me?
