EVENING STAR. W A SHIIfQTOlf C ITT: THURSDAY J?lr IT, lS5b IET Advertisements should bf handed In hy It ?'clock, in., othfnrii* they may not appear until the neit day. SPIRIT OF THE MOBBIHO PRESS. The Union eopies from the Lancaster Intel ligmrer a repudiation on the part of its editor of the St. Louis Democrats imputation that its editor and Mr. Buchanan endorse the sen timents of it's (the Intelligencer's) St. Louis correspondent relative to the Benton and anti Benton difficulty in that State. This repudi ation came by no means too soon, as its longer delay bade fair to result in wide-spread mis chief for Mr. Buchanan. The Intelligencer, referring to the manner in which a jury was yesterday selected in the trial of P. T. Herbert for the murder of Thorn aa Keating, says: " In two instances, namely, those of Mr. Lord and Mr. Owen, it was admitted without hesitation that they had both formed and ex pressed opinions < n the subject, and Mr. Owen yet further acknowledged that the opinion he bad so formed and expressed he still retained. The District Attorney took strong exception to allowing persons who had thus avowed them selves to sit upon the jury, but the Court over ruled the objection, taking the words of the {arties tbst they should not be swayed by any ias, so as to prevent their rendering an im partial verdict." WA8HI10TOH HEW8 AND GOSSIP Th* Mask Dropping Off.?It ia now under stood to be reduced to a certainty that the friends of Fillmore in Pennsylvania design uniting with those of Fremont in the support of a single electoral ticket, whose votes, as an electoral college, ar*> to be pledged to be given for Fremont, if that may be the best policy l>y way of cesuring the defeat of Buchanan. The ?eheme was arranged in this city by the spec ulating clique?the dealers in Maraposa claim stock, in special treasury favors, Ac , Ac ? who are the chief managers of the Presiden tial campaign on the part of that " entorpri? ing young man " It baa been acceded to with gTeat alacrity, we hear, by the Fillmore leaders of Pennsylvania, and will doubtless be carried out with equal seal by the Fill more masses of the State?it being against the constitution and regulations of ?' the order" for subordinates in the lodges to disobey the determinations of their chief authorities. The question of interest in this connection ia, however, how will the friends of Fillmore in Maryland and other Southern States relish the announcement of this news? Are they, too, willing to aid in the election of Fremont with all his odious political surroundings, in order to defeat Buchanan* The fact that they eontinue to countenance the idoa of giv ing Mr. Fillmore the votes of Southern States by way of defeating the choice of Mr. Buch anan under such circumstances, will amount to making them practically, co conspirators with their Pennsylvania brethren in this mat ter. We warned them not long since that the union between the Northern Fillmore forees in the House and the Republican party mem bers on all questions of practical import, against the rights and interests of the South, was complete. To be sure, some of them voted against the Topeka constitution of Kan sas; but bad ihere been the slightest hope that their unanimous support of it would have given that measure a triumph in the Senate, it is well known here that they would have voted for it with as much alacrity as on the day before yesterday they voted to carry out the bebe3ts of abolitionism in expelling Mr. Brooks and censuring Mr. Keitt What hope, after those votes, can sane men at the South have, that they?the peculiar friends and immediate representatives of Mr. Fill more? will not, in all issues so vitally affecting the rights, interests and honor of the South, persistently court the favor and sucoumb to the demands of the fell spirit of abolitionism ? They talk fairly enough to the South in their ?peeches designed to cheat the Southern Know Nothing masses into aiding in the election of Fremont in the belief that they are really aiding to elect Mr. Fillmore. But whenever they can strengthen the cause of " Freedom in Kansas" by acting heart and soul with the Republicans, in their votes, they hesitate not so to do. It is almost time that the very blindest Kuow Nothing partisan in all the Southern States should see through the flimsy veil of pretended nationalism worn in the House hall by Mr Fillmore's Northern friends, only by way of inducing them (the Southern Know Nothings) to aid in the consummation of the ?ehemea of abolitionism with reference to Kan aas, even if in so doing they (of the South) shall at the same time submit themselves to be used in electing John C. Fremont to the Presidency of the United States The Victory?We yesterday remarked in cidentally that the victory in the final dispo sition oi !h? report of the Select Committee on the Brooks and Sumner fracas, was really with Preston S Brooks One must see behind the curtain here to comprehend the full force of that averment. He must also have been a wit ness of the scene in the Hall duringthe delivery of the three great speeches of Messers fcd Bundson, Brooks, and Keitt?than which no other three as intellectual and as high-toned oratorical efforts ever before ounsecutively marked the proceedings of the House of Repre sentatives. The South may well be proud of them, and take them as cherished exponents of southern principles, southern views on the question of the union of the States, on that of the integrity and honor of the South, and also on that of individual duty, and right and wrong in the acts of individuals in ordinary affairs; for they are replete with sentiments and ideas that will be hailed throughout the whole South as those which should form the rule of the conduct of honorable men in pri vate as well as public affairs. Every point made by these three distin guished gentlemen in the course of their re marks fell with tremendous effect on the cause of their adversaries ; because they car ried with them conviction of the superior po litical morality (integrity.) devotion to the con stitution and sense of the obligations of jus tice, honaaty, and sound patriotism on the part of the South, as compared with the North, which throughout the session has been mani festing in the conduct cf those claiming to be her peculiar ehnmpiona, a first determination to carry through her purposes against, around and over law and solemnly guarantied rights, and, a second determination, to seek gimsy, bare less excuses for so doing, * W9Mk barefaced as that on the exposure of their utter fii'fity and shameless mendacity, those who bad bee"* fng*g*d urging them turned pale in the eight of all present, with fcfright and mortification. W? never saw the humbuggery of the claim of the North to superior attainment?, learning^ Sto., more completely exploded than in the discussion on this subject. While classio grace and lore and well poised sarcasm, as sharp as the finest Toledo blade, ran through the efforts of these three gentlemen, scholarly and powerful reasoning, carrying conviction not only of the injustice sought to be perpetrated upon them -individually, but on their sec tion, marked the speech of each of them, greatly superior to anything falling from the lips of the antagonists who sought to over whelm their cause by mere multiplicity of words. The speech of Mr. Keitt was indeed m fitting reply to that of M*- Burlingame, I who has doubtless learned from it not only the folly of essaying to disouss history in a hall of Coagress, upon the flimsy knowledge of it com mon to the half educated persons who have managed to obtain control of the minds of the even less educated masses of the North, but also that of assailing gentlemen perjonally in debate, only by way of showing one's Consti tution that one can sling slush in tho hall in times like the present, when the House takes upon itself to shield those who seek to obtain notoriety after that not very commendable fashion. False Statements.?It seems that naught but falsehood, direct and palpable, will serve the purpose of the Republican party in its present strait. A Washington correspondent of the New York Trihunt signing himself H , does his best to earn their gratitude by his achievemonts in that lice. Thus, he represents Mr. Edmundson as having in his late speech appealed to the sympathy of the members to ward off the vote of censure on him essayed for political effect to be extracted from the House. He also tells tho Trikunt,s readers that at the conclusion of his speech, Mr. Brooks was actually embraced and kissed ly sundry ladies of his auditory' We need hard ly add that these statements are wholly desti tute of truth. The "Navy Reform Board" Question at Length Settled.?Yesterday, the Senate are understood to have confirmed the nominations of Commanders G. J. Pendergrast and W. C. Nicholson, who obtained their present rank through the action of the late Retiring Board These nominations were sent in early in the session, and action on them was suspended until the Senate should settle the Retiring Board question, so elaborately discussed for months past The opponents of the Board strenuously objected to action on any of the nominations resulting from their recommenda tions. The confirmation of these two shows that the long struggle is over. The Cleveland (Ohio) Custom-Hotue, Post Office, and United States Couit Room?.? Yesterday, the Secretary of the Treasury awarded the contract for the construction of this building to W. J. Warner, his bid ($*3,500) being the lowest. His competitors are Baid to have been the Messrs. Latham and Millingcr, both of whose tenders were considerably above that of Mr. Warner. The Promotions in the Navy.?The Sen ate is still in executive session as we go to press. It seems to be understood around the Capitol that they are engaged in acting on the Presidents nominations for promotions in the Navy, resulting from the action of the late Naval Retiring Board.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, the debato on the bill to increase the efficiency of the arms, (muskots, Ac ,) of the Government of the United States was con tinued by Mr. Jones, of Tenn., in reply to Mr. Hale. In the course of his remarks he argued the importance of adopting the bill, in spite of any outcry upon the score of econ ' my, from the present defenceless state of the country. Recent occurrences had shown how precarious is our dependence upon a safe and certain transit across the Isthmus to reach cur Western coast; and, if a war should un fortunately arise with any foreign nation our Pacific possessions would be left to their own resources. How formidable those are may be conjectured from the fact that the Govern ment has not in California at present suffi cient ammunition for ten rounds. If all the guns necessary for our defenco even between ^cw York and New Orleans were mounted, our arsenals do not contain ammunition enough for twenty-five rounds to each gun The inadequate state of our means was forci bly shown by the declaration that more am munition was spent at Sebastopol in forty eight hours than is now owned by the United States Government. Experiments are in progress, Mr. J. pro ceeded to say, to determine what arm to se lect of the many submitted to their adoption ? for instance, th(,*e of Colt, Sharpe and Jen nings. Whichever one wiu chosen, a great expense must be incurred to furnish the army !t,waii asked by biH to give 51,200 000 to change into Minie rifles the eight hundred thousand stand of arms now in pos session of the Government, but useless in com parison with the greatly improved weapon of late years The small sum of three dollars per musket would furnish an arm equal in efficiency to any in the world. Mr. J. contended, then, that the bill was in fact an eionomical one. and he might advo cate it also as a peace measure ; for if it were known that, with cur great population and wealth, we were in a prepared condition in all that relates to our military and defensive resources, other nations would pause long and 'ieliberato cautiously before they would seek a quarrel with us or attempt any infringement of our rights Upon the conclusion of his re marks the further consideration of the bill was deferred to next Monday ; and, after an executive session, they adjourned. In th# House, Mr. Reitt, at the conclusion of his speech, announced that he had for warded to the Governor of South Carolina his resignation. The report of the Elections Committee, oust ing the Hon. J. C. Allon, of Illinois, and awarding his seat in tho House of Representa tives of the Lnited States, to Wm. B Archer, was taken up. and its adoption was advooated by Mr. Washburn, of Maine tleman^lIeD' *1,inois' reP,ied tbat gen And, then, after resolving to allow the con testant to address the House in reply to Mr Allen if he saw fit so to do, they adjourned.

In the Houge, the Illinois contested elec tion case was again taken up immediately after reading the journal, and Mr. Allen (whose seat is the one in question) continued and concladed his speech began yesterday Mr Morton then took the floor and wa3 ad'irersiDg the House in faror of the report when wo went to pres3 A Perfumed Breath-What lady or gen tleman would remain under the curse of a dis agreeable breath when by using the "Balm oj a Thousand Flowers" as a dentrifioe would not only render it sweet but leave the teeth whito as alabaster' Many persons do not know their breath ij bad. and the subject is so delicate their friends will never mention it.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE. Gborgbtowh, July 17, 1855. The excursion of the Young Catholic's d Society, to Pye's L?ndi.| yest.rd.,, was one of real pleasure to every person who went The spacious steamer Powhatan was loaded to her utmost capacity, there being not less than six hundred psrsons on board. The boat left our wharves at about eight o'clock, v "? w*nt' &ft" 8toPP'nK ?t Washington and tort Washington some time, reached the point of destination about one o'clock, p. m Here the time was spent in such diversions as pleased the various tastes of the company About half-past four the boat left the wharf at the Landing, and, after proceeding some distance further down the river, returned, reaching Georgetown at about sunset Among a promiscuous oompany of such numbers it would be but reasonable to expect some un kindness of expression or dissatisfaction to occ"f'' ?ut*e ar? haPP7 to say we are jet to see the first person who was of the party who was not perfectly-delighted with the trip.
