EVENING STAR.

They may rely npon having such work done at the Star office in a satisfactory manner as to style and price, and in the shortest possible time. Be sure to give us a call before making Arrangements elsewhere. None*.?Those charged with the manage ment of clubs, 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 for 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 have not been ccmplied with. This rule must be imperative 8PIBIT OF THE MORNING PBESS. Ihe iHtMigtnctr republishes certain State papers bearing on our relations with Britain recently communicated to Parliament, and, in so doing, takes occasion to say? " The British Ministry laid before Parlia ment on the 28th ultimo various additional papers and despatches in regard to British and American affairs; amongst them Secretary Jnarcy s despatch communicating the fact of the dismissal of the Minister and Consuls of x>ngland,a letter from Mr. Crampton to the J of Clarendon, dated London, June 1?, and Lord Clarendon's reply to Mr. Marcy. This last-named despatch we now insert from the English papers. It will be read with pleasure m his country?notwithstanding the increased regret it will inspire that the rea sons were unavailing which are so respectfully but cogently submitted in opposition to the inexorable course adopted by our Government in the expulsion of the British Minister-be cause in tone and manner it copies so well the excellent temper and conciliatory spirit of Mr. ' Jostifactory despatch" as to cany within itself an assuaging leniative for any remaining imtation which the transaction might have created. We place this style of conducting national controversies amone the cardinal virtues of statesmen, and we think our Secretary of State has done honor to the Administration of which he is a member by the propriety which has distinguished him in this important path of official duty."

The Vuxon shows that the last hope of the Kepubhcana-of being able to make even tte semblance of a contest in November? rests upon the success of their purpose of defeating the Senate Kansas pacification bill, and ex poses the weakness of their plea against it be cause some of the abolitionists of the Terri tory are now in prisen, and others fugitives from justice, and therefore cannot participate in the voting to take place under the bill, by showing that they are so situated on account of having perpetrated murders: arsons, rob beries, Ac., which ail civilised societies alike condemn and punish, and Hot for violating the famous black code of the Territorial Legisla ture.

The Coarse of the Miasourians?The Re* publican party press are just dow furious oyer the very proper manner in which the people of Missouri are treating all armed bands es saying to pass through their State on their way to participate in the civil war in Kansas. That way if, simply, disarming them. With in the last month, while no such bands have essayed to go into the Territory from the South, the military authorities of the United States there having in obedience to the President's proclamation disarmed and dispersed all such bands of both parties falling in thtir way; and the people of the South having refrained from efforts to go there under these circumstances to take the side of their friends in their present need. Not so with those of the North, however. Chicago, Worcester, Massachusetts, and a re gion of Illinois, have each subsequently sent thither companies of loafing fellows incapable of earning a decent livelihood at home, or of raising the means of paying for their own transportation thither. They sent them out with blessed Sharpe's rifles in their hands, prayed over, bragged over, and hucsaed over, as usual The avowed purpose of sending them was that they might aid the abolition ists of the Territory in resisting the law and plundering, burning and murdering That those who sent them thither on such an er rand should dream that the citizens of Mis souri would permit them to pass over their State in the present condition of the Terri tory, is only evidence of the fitark madness of the anti-slaveryites. No armed bands trav eling for any purpose whatever in such times have a legal right to pass over the territory of Missouri without the consent of its authori ties. The proclamation of the President makes it morally the duty of Missouri to take due care that no companies go from or through her ter ritory to participate iu the existing civil war. To us the wonder is, that the Missourians have been able so to restrain themselves as to do no personal injury to the members of the three companies of abolition recruits they have stopped on their way to the Territory: whose Beecher-blessed rifles and revolvers have been taken away from them, to be re stored at a time and place agreed on, so ar ranged as to make it certain that if they choose to persevere in the effort to go to Kan sas to fight rather than to till the soil or trans act other peaceful business there, they must take another route. All who desire to go through Missouri, whether from North or South, and who go unarmed and with the signs about them of the purpose of settling and laboring as peaceful citirens, arc, of course, permitted to pass unmolested. Above we present the Star's readers with the truo history of the vory last adopted theme for the Kansas roorbacks of the New York Tribune, Times, Herald, ft id owne \ genus. The Prospect ?Our advices from all quar ters satisfy us that, though everywhere the opposition are contending with desperation and with all the means they can possibly devise or raise, they are to be overwhelmingly defeated. The only slavebolding States in which the Know Nothings havo aught but a shadow of effectiveness for making a real battle when the voting comes on in November, are Delaware Maryland, Kentucky, and Louisiana ; and in Kentucky and Louisiana they are surely des tined to be overwhelmingly defeated They have hopes of carrying Delaware and Mary land, and are therefore struggling desperately there. In thirty dajs from the present wri ting, it will be plainly perceived in those States that votes for their Fillmore electoral tickets are merely votes to strengthen Fre mont; when thousands, who would gladly ad here to Fillmore under other circumstances, will, of course, abandon him. The great mass of the opposition in Maryland, however much they may be attached to Mr. Fillmore, will pursue no course in the approaching election likely to strengthen the hands and purposes of abolitionism. The difficulty in the Democratio party in New York has been entirely settled. The llard masses have very unanimously sig nified their determination to take the bit in their mouths, scouting the advice and authori ty of their State centra! committee, and uniting with those who have called a State convention in accordance with and obedience to the terms indicated by the Cincinnati convention. It is very evident that the Hard State conven tion soon to assemble in Syracuse will gladly accept the arrangements to be made there at the same time by the regular Democratic State convention, as it is well known that by that time they will not have an average of ten constituents to each delegate present; while from quite half the assembly districts of the State there will not be a single delegate on the ground. The Fillmore party of Connecticut will cer tainly have an electoral ticket of their own, which will receive thousands of votes, though the Republicans in Washington, for effect, are pooh-pooh-ing the idea that more than a hand ful will support it. As for California, Pennsylvinia, and New Jersey, the contest in cach of these States is a more bagatelle, all of them being certain for Buchanan by majorities as overwhelming as those which Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi will give. Our friends in Tennessee are calculating, certainly, on eight, if not twelve thousand majority there. By the end of the October elections. Fremont and his woolly horse, and Fillmore, with his well spoken speeches cn slavery while his northern friends in the House are intriguing with the Republicans to prevent the entrance of Kansas into the Union as a slaveholding State, if its inhabitants are so minded, will be literally nowhere. The Non-payment of Interest ?The New York Day Bool -famous for ferreting out and exposing questionable transactions in Wall street?says that the "Co" of the firm of Palmer, Cook A Co , of San Francisco, California, is no other than John C. Fremont. The house of Palmer, Cook A Co., is, as we explained a few days ago, the agent of Cali fornia for pajing the interest on her debt. The D,iy Bool avers that the State has paid his interest into the hands of Palmer, Cook * Co , to be paid by them in New York to ?"d"?" 00 tki' and tb.t i?,to,d ? it to tb. bond holder., 1 Co> tb. K.p?blic.n Dooiinmtioa for Mr. Fr.mont, ,?d f?, otller incidentals connected with that gentleman's cenvass for the presidency. In this wi?y the Day Bool accounts for Mr. Fremont's late tribulation in Wall street, where be " shined it ' for soinp days, endeavoring in vain to rfisc f60,000 on his own credit to moct the indebtedness of his business house to the Cal ifornia bondholder?, whose money, held bj hia house in moet sacred trust, had been spir ited aw ay, the Day Book allege*. This is bad financiering all around, bearing oat the revelations of the late James King of William, whioh were supposed to have had m?ch to do with originating the conspiracy ending in his murder by the hand of Caaey. Hon. Warren Winslow.?During the do bate upon the subject now before the House of Representatives (the Sumner affair) the Hon. Warren Winslow made an able argument de nyiog constitutional power in the premises. This, we believe, was his first oratorical effort in Ihe House, of which ha is an effioient and deservedly esteemed member. In the com mencement of his remarks, he spoke calmly and eloquently of the agitation now existing in the country, and, in a spirit of fervor, point ed out the duty of every lover of not a mere section, but of the entire, our common coun try. His language was chaste, and flowed with grace and earnestne&s from the lips of this statesman from the "Old North (Carolina) State." His voice and manner were in entire accordance with the language in which hia high-toned sentiments were expressed. He commanded the attention of all the members present; a compliment which the auditors at the Capitol especially?considering the (>noise and confusion" which usually prevail?can not fail to appreciate. Return of the Vincennee.?The U S. sloop of-war Vincennes has reached New York after the remarkable passage of only seventy-four days from Tahiti, Sandwich Islands. She has been one of the vessels engaged in the explor ation of Bebring's Straits, the North Pacific, Ac , ordered by act of Congress in 1853. All are well on board her. The following is a list of her officer*: ?Commander, John Rodgers, (commanding expedition); Henry K. Stevens, John Van McCollum, John Scott Fillebrown, John H. Russell, Beverly Kennon, Lieuten ants; Wm. Wrier, Fleet Surgeon; W. Brenton B?ggs> Purser; Earneit R Knorr, Commo dore's Secretary and Draughtsman; Arthur Witxleben, Assistant Draughtsman; William Stimpson, Zoologist; Charles Wright, Botanist; Edward M Kern, Assistant Artist; F. H Bierbcwer, Commodore's Clerk; Thos. Niblo, Purser's Clerk; Anton Schoubcrn, Assistant Astronomer; James H. Owens, Carpenter; Richard Berry. Sailmaker. A Miotake ?" Examination or Assistant Engineers ?The Secretary of the Navy has ordered a Board of Chief Engineers of the Navy, to convene at Washington, on the 17th of August next, for the purpose of examiniug assistant engineers for promotion, who were absent from the country at the last examina tion ; and also candidates for admission into the engineer corps of the navy. The latter must be not less than eighteen nor more than twenty-six years of age, and must produce good letters of character, Ac." The above extract from the Baltimore Sun of this morning, involves a mistake. The Board above referred to adjourned some time since until the 19th of August proximo, when they are to re-assemble in this city to exam ine the candidates for promotion only, who were not alio to attend during their recent session. No candidates for admission. The Charge to the Jury.?More feoling exists in this^ommunity with reference to the charge given to the jury in the Herbert case than we ever before saw manifested on any similar subject. It teems to be the univeral theme of conversation among all classes of our fellow-citiiens to-day. The reader will find them in our local columns. The U. S Storeship Relief, Jas W. Cooke, Lieutenant commanding, arrived at New York on Saturday last or yesterday, from the Bra lilian station, for which she sailed last from the United States for our squadron there. The Current Operation! of the Treasury Departmant.?On Saturday, the 12th of July, there were of Treasury warrants entered on the books of the Department? For redemption of Texas debt.... $13,268 58 For the redemption of Stocks.... 23,395 57 For the Treasury Department... 3,431 45 For the Intorior Department 13,020 61 For Customs 22,565 61 War warrants received and en tered 21,773 26 War repay warrants received and entered 2,128 9 2 On account of the Navy 124.822 95 Repayment on account of the Navy 2,216 00 From miscellaneous sources 716 00 CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS The Senate did not meet on Saturday last. In the Houie, on that day, after we went to press, the resolution from the select commit tee on the Brooks and Sumner affair being under consideration, Mr. English offered a substitute for it censuring Mr. Brooks and at the same time expressing the disapprobation of the House of speeches in Congress assailing individual members or States. The debate was then continued by Messrs. Boyce nnd Etheriige. Mr. Quitman moved to confino further de bate on the subject to fiiteen-minute speeches. The motion having been agreed to, such speeches were delivered by Messrs. Nichols, 1 aylor, Stuart, Branch, Tyson, Knapp, Wood ruff, Savage, and Oliver of New York. Mr. Houston then moved to recommit the whole subject, with instructions to report that the House have neither authority to determine what are the Senate's privileges, nor power to punish their violation. The debate was further continued by M?s?rs Kunkel, Damrcll, Campbell of Pa., Hall of Mass , Durfee. Purviance, and Leiter, who contended the House bad jurisdiction, and by Me?srs Bowie, Reade, Florence, and Letcher, who took the opposite side of the question ; and then, at 9 o'clock, the House adjourned. PreraedlBf ? of Ta?Day? In the Senate, to-day, a bill to amend the charter of the town of Georgetown was taken up and passed. Mr Hale introduced a resolution directing the Publio Buildings Committee to inquire into the expediency of stopping the work on the dome or the Capitol for the time being, and seeking for a satisfactory plan for that work in accordance with good taste, and up to the standard of modern improvement, Ac ; resolution agreed to. Two or three private bills were then passed ere they adjourned. In the House, Mr. Sapp moved to fuspend the rules for the consideration of a Senate bill for the relief of Norwood McClelland, master of the steamboat New World ; motion subse quently withdrawn. Mr. Clingman moved to suspend the rule to take up from the Speaker's table the Senate's joint resolution, fixing Monday, the 28th o' July, as the time for the termination of the present session. Mr. Dunn demanded the yeas and nays on that motion, which being ordered, the rules were not suspended?veas 110, nays 91. Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, moved to postpone the further consideration of the resolution for the expulsion of Mr. Brooks, and to cen sure Messrs. Keittand Edmundson on account of the Brooks and Sumner fracas. Messrs. Houston and Mr. McMullin oppose< that motion. Mr. Meacham moved the previous question on the resolution and amendments. While the House was in the act of dividing on this question, Mr. Campbell of Ofcio, asked leave to offer a substitute for the original res olution ; ruled out of order The call for the previous question was then reconsidered bj the House, and the main question was ordered. Mr- Edmundson, by leave, then addressed the House in explanation of his alleged con nection with the assault of Mr. Brooks upon Mr. Sumner, in which he was engaged as the Star went to press. The "Yellow Vest" Difflculty.* We give below the oomments of the leading London papers upon the last diplomatic em breilment, vi*., the rejection, at the Queen's levee, of the West Point Professor with the yellow vest: {Frem the Loudon Times, June *5 j w^b?D lh? Americans learn manners? Who shall tea^h our transatlantic cousins how ?*PJ" one of them who tried on Wednesday, m defiance even of an etiquetta modified to suit his countrymen, to parade his republican person before tbe Queen at ber levee, in a frock coat, black neckcloth and vellow waistcoat. The thin? itself was trivial, but the object unmistakable. He wished to have it to boast that he had compelled the Queen to fcrego the usages of hercourt in this especial behoof. He tried to accomplish this national feat under the wing of Mr Dallas, who, when appealed to, supported hia coun trymen and left the palace in a pet Well, '"".j1; we "oppose ber majesty will oontinue to hold levees in spite of Mr Dallas' displea . 11 " worth while to confute the absurd pretensions of people who, with the most irritable touchiness in regard to themselves, combine the greatest disregard of all decorum towards others. The Queen of England says to her subjeots and to strancers who visit her in her own house, " I am hapnv to see you on all state occasions, but if y'u come, you will find me gorgeously arrayed to do you honor-return the compliment, then and come in your best." She tells her guests in fact, ?s hundreds of ladies and gentlemen in this country are in the habit of telling their friends, " This is a 'full dress party/ * thereby lmnlying that all who do not choose to observe the rule had better stay away What should wo think of a fellow in private life who, after accepting an invitation to a set dinner, at which every body else wore full dress, presented himself in a shooting jacket and shepherd s plaid trousers? In all proba bility, should such a portent appear on the honeon of a gentleman's hall, it would never rise to the upper regions of the drawing room, for the butler would infallibly show him to the door. Now, this is what the Queen's mas

ter of the ceremonies very properly did iu the case oi an American who. in a frock coat, vel lew vest, and black neckcloth, choso to present himself at her Majesty's levee yesterday. He knew the usage of the oourt. and be perfcrred to with hold from the Queen and her august company the compliment which every gentle man would have rendered Our American cousins must really learn the good old pro verb abont -doing at Rome as they do at Rome, and though they may live at home in the enjoyment of all liberty or license of dress or undress, they must, when they visit these communities, either disguise themselves and their republican prejudices in decent attire on occasions of state solemnity, or forego the greatest delight on which a true republican can feast his eager eyes?the sight of a live Queen on her throne. (From the Lordon Atlas, June ?8.) On Wednesday Her Majesty held a levee, ac companied with all the pronip and state be longing to such occasions. The gentlemen blazed in uniforms or displayed the quaint oddities of court costume. Into this gay re gion of old-world magnificence, garnished with folly enough to make the old world happy a small party from the new world endeavored to make their way. In consideration of the severe simplicities of republican Washington tbe court sticks of gold and silver have long received instructions to admit American di- I plomatists tailored in tho common evening ' way. I Notwithstanding this, Mr. Dallas wore a ' court dress, but one of his attaches had a mil itary uniform, consisting of a frock coat, white waistcoat, and black stock ; and, unfor tunately, the hearts of G-old Sticks and Silver Sticks were stirred within at tho horrible sight, and a general presentation of sticks warned off the intruder from the royal ground Mr Dallas regretting the error which had been committed in the belief that an official military dress was quite correct, retired with good temper; and Her Majesty on hearing of the indiscretion of her'Sticks' sent a mesfage to admit the uniform without delay The message arrived too late, and the party had Next morning the Times, ever ready to mis lead, had an impertinent and misrepresenting article on the subject, and tbe whole tribe of gents and " snobs" assumed that an in tentional insult had been committed, and were greedy for retaliation and war Happily the matter is very simple and straightforward, l ho real facts make those who indulged in an ungentlemanly readiness to impute rude nesa to the American minister look supremely ridiculous. Mr Dallas and his attache have nothing to regret, and the good sense and the kind feeling of the Queen have been agree ably shown. 6 ' Hie incident has demonstrated that the im ortance of clothes has not declined The reechee of Mahomet constitute the great standard of Turkey; a blacksmith ? apron and a Phrygian cap have figured largely in his Ih?y \? a m th? Times< tb? clothes of the attache will descend peifcefuliy to the Bhosen people, and no Sartor Resartus will have to tell of dire convulsions or even of por- I lentous protocols upon the coat the vest or the cravat of this diplomatic invader of St. James s habilimental laws. [From the London Newa of June 28. j ] The conduct of the Queen on the occasion Df the contretemps at the levee was exactly what might have been expected from her ex ;ellent sense and presence of mind When informed by Lord Clarendon of what had hap pened, her Majesty at once replied : ?? Let the gentleman be admitted ; I shall be hapvv to receive htm in any costumeI [From the London Post of June 27 ] I Every body is by this time aware of an oc currence that took place at her Majesty's levee on Wednesday. As it evidently arose sut of the indiscretion or ignorance of an in dividual, we abstained from giving publicitv to this unpleasant affair; and we are the more satisfied with having taken such a course, as we have now reason to believe that the United states Minister lost no time in offering apolo getic explanations and that these have been accepted.
