Noticx ?Those charged with the manage ment cf club?, societies, and all other aasocia ? tiers are notified that in order to insure the insertion of advertise meat* or notices of any desciip'kn in tbtStar, payment must be made for them when < ffercd, 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 havo not been ocmplied with. This rule must be imperative. ?PI7?TT "Y THE MORNING PRESS. The Union urges Mr Ball's committee to extend its investigations into the transactions of the Treasury Department under the last Administration, if its purpose be really to ferret out public abases, intimating that it will thus fird enough to make it quite sick of its job in hand. The Jntel/igenetr deplores the growing sec tional animosity, and quotes the prophetic and persuasive words of Webster against that fell spirit was ammo* akws led eossip The Trial of P. T. Herbert.?The readers of the Star will boar witness to the scrupulous care with which we have endeavored to steer this journal clear of a course upon the subject of the#h< micide of Keating, by Herbert, that might by any chance serve to defeat a fair tr.alof the accused. We have pursued that course under a deep sense of our responsibility as the conductor of a public journal penetrat ing into almost every household in the District of Columbia and for many miles around, as well as into thousands afar off accustomed to regard its statements of occurrences in Wash ington as being, except in the few instances in which we make corrections, positively and un qualifiedly true Yet we also feel, as we should, the respon sibility resting upon the Star as one of the guardians of the true interests of this commu nity, which are involved in nothing more cer tainly than in the rigidness with which both law and justice are administered without fear or favor, by the courts of the District of Colum bia We had hoped that we should have felt at Ij^erty to abstain from making a single edi toria! comment upon this trial during its pro gress; but the labors of those who are now seeking to vindicate the accused in many ways, have imposed on us the disagreeable du y of expressing our views?not upon the quta:ionof the gailt or innocence of P. T Herbert?but on collateral subjects bearing on the trial. A counsel for the defence, in opening yes terday, commented with great severity upon the c urse cf the press with reference to the afTiir, including, in plain terms, the press of this city, whose publications concerning it have, as far as we have seen, been marked with e xupukus forbearance, under the cir.-um starces. To the press he attributed the great excitement existing here with reference to the mutter. It strikes us that features connected witb the tri-1 are more fairly chargable with h v eg originated the more than usuul itter e. I it that has been manife-ted by the Di? trtflt public. These are firs', the manifest difference made ry the officers of the law in the treat ment of the accused when first arrested, and that of ether prisoners he Id under charges of the same grade. Next, the extraordinary ar ray of "distinguished" influence in the court rooms during the original examination and the subsequent trial, calculated, if not de signed, to deftat the return of a verdict with out fear or favor. Next, again, the course which the court conceived to be its duty to pursue throughout the trial, ending in the in structions given to the jury, which have al ready been severely commented upon by the press of the country, and which have been veiy generally disapproved by the legal pro fession, as invclving ideas of the law by no meats likely to render human life more safe thun heretofore in this community And next, a^ain, the fact that these instructions went to the jury without a protest from the prosecution A scrupulous determination to abstain from doing au^ht that can possibly improperly influence the result of the trial compels us to say no more of the?e instruc tions at this time. Again : Circumstances connected with the ?election of the jury now trying the case are far more calculated than any possible com ments cf the press to excite the mind of this public with reference to the trial. Eleven of the jurors are understood to be members of the Know Nothing party Two of them de clared, on being questioned by the Court, that they had foimed opinion* as to the guilt or innocence of the accused and had eipressed those opinions; while one cf t-cm proclaimed that at that moment hia expressed opinion was retained ; which means if meaning i-ny thing, that his mind was bi assed on the case. One of the jurors is un derstood to have been a visitor of the accused in prison and an active sympathiser with him He submit that all these things legitimately account for the extraordinary manner in which public attention is fixed on this trial, without seeking for other reasons to that end. Again : friends of the accused have used some of the newspapers of Washington in his behalf. Even tc-day we find in the Onion an earnest appeal, evidently for his acquittal, to much of which we do not feel at liberty to allude in detail, because it touches points which we cannot discus* without justly aub jecting ourself to the charge of having undu ly influenced the current trial There i> a statement in that eommunicatlon, however, which it is due to this public that we should notice. It is as follows : "If Mr. Doubois had consented to appear in court he could only have corroborate^^ testimony for the defence. This ffcntl?m?n b.. ...bori.M I>r O M Woo,US! *". in this city, to contradict ,M tkr wj."* Mtatemmt, with which bis name hss bee^ in any manner connected Delicacy on the part 5*' fronds has prevented the publication of Mr. Dubois' statement durine the pendency of the trial; but at the proper time it will be made public." Of this we have to say that, without pre tending to dispute the accuracy of its repre sentation of what M Dubois told the gentle man named above, of which we know nothing except what the writer states, we are very sure that bis original representations of the ? fi ir t gentlemen of Washington do not war rant the conclusion with reference to what Ma testimony would be if appearing on the wit ness stand, to which the writer in *be Union has arrived I Knowing well that a hue and cry will b? raised against ns for thus discussing this af fair, we hare to say to the public that our sense of duty to th? cause of law and justice in our midst, and that only, has been our guide throughout it. ? The Mockery ?Some days since we took occasion to expose the Know Nothing charac ter of the late bogus Old Line Whig State Con vention held at Baltimore, Md., whereupon some Know Nothing correspondent of our tal ented, truthful and ingenuous neighbor abused us and epithetised us roundly, for misrepre senting that precious gathering Feeling very sure that rome bona fide Old Line Whig of Maryland would sooner or later lift the flimsy veil of false pretences with which the Know Nothings were endeavoring to cover up thair tracks in the management of that affair, we preferred not to notice our gentle and amiable neighbor's correspondent at that time. The lion. Senator Samuel II Berry of Upper Marl boro, who was elected a delegate from Prince Ueorga to that Convention, appeared on the day before yesterday in the Planter's Advo cate over hia own name, and thoroughly ex poses the mendacity, impudence and hum buggery of the effort to create the impression that it proved to be aught but a Know Noth ing expedient to deceive the bona fiie Whigs ttf the State into the support of Fillmore and the principles of Know Nothingism. We there fore proceed to quote him as a sufficient reply to the Know Nothing who assailed us through the columns of our immaculate and even-tem pered neighbor. Thus; describing the success ful efforts of the Know Nothings to pack the jounty meeting* selecting delegates, he says : In many, indeed in most of these, it appear ed that there were present persons notoriously identified with this new party, in such num bers as in many instances to control the ac tion of the meeting, as a consequence of which many delegations were sent, either instructed to endorse a particular candidate, or else composed of persons previously pledged to bis support. The irregularity of which proceed ing must have been apnarent to all real Whigs, upon two considerations; for, firstly, memners or adherents of other parties had no right to control the*e meetings, and, second ly. the sending for men already pledged or instructed for a particular ticket, and resolved it all hazard to have that ticket endorsed, defeated the primary and original object of the whole movement, wh:ch, as I have stated, wad for the purpjso of free and unbiased con sultation aa to the course proper for Whigs to pursue. " Upon arriving in Baltimore it was evident that these irregular proceedings had been carried to such an extent, as totally to aet at defiance the very object of the Convention, it being clear that the adherents of the '? Amer ican' party and the supporters of its nomina tion had secured the entire control. Believing, therefore that the meeting would not he prop erly a Whig meeting, believing that it would iepart from the principles already laid down by the first meeting, (April 29th.) and that its action would. consequently, bo an entire do sertion and betrayal of the Old Line Whirrs of the S ate, I declined to attend its sittings. And it is because these fears have been con firmed by its action, that I refuse to endorse, in any purticular, what it has seen fit to do. Many of the counties were not represented at all Mmy had but oue delegate present, and not a lew even of the delegations that were present were composed of persons who cared not a fig for Whig principles in comparison with the aforesaid " American" dogmas they bad seen fit to adopt. "I oppose its action, therefore, in the first place, because it was properly constituted, but was controlled l>y the members or adherents of another party to secure their own onds. I c-ppose it, in the second place, because of the resolutions it adopted, and its endorsement of Mr Fillmore. The resolutions, by their im plied coincidence with Mr. Fillmore a present position, fly directly in the face of the position taken by the preceding meeting of the 2V?th of April, and by their studied evasion of the ex siting question ol the day. their denunciation if the democratic party as sectional, because of its efforts on behalf of southern rights, and their failure to endorse the Kansas bill, for which the South now contends, they utterly tail to meet the views of southern Whigs upon these questions " The Contested Election Case.?The Repub lican managers in the House have decreed that the Hon. Mr. Allen, of Illinois shall be ousted from his seat as a representative in Congress, and that one of their own party sha.l take his place. The reason for this de termination is to be fjund in the fact that by ejecting such a change, tho vote of Illinois will be secured for Fremont in case the Presi dential election goes to the House. Under such ciroumstauces, a very slim pretence of illegality in the election of Mr. Allen, is suffi cient as tho ba*is on which to found the pro ceedings through which they are striving to Wuik ??ut their end. So far as the question of right is concerned, one might as well whistle psalms to dead horses as argue it to them in their present strait concerning the next Presi dency. If this determination was theirs only? the evil would be slight in its effects. But Mr. Fillmore's northern friends, or at least enough of them to secure the triumph of their plot?for it is neither more nor less than u plot?have determined to aid theia V\ hile the Southern Know Nothing leaders and newspapers are tickling the imagination of their followers with Mr Fillmore's Albauy and Rochester speeches, hie northern guard in the House are plotting with the Republi cans a scheme like this, to, if possible, insuro the election of Fremont over Buchanan. \ erily, the Know Nothing leaders must re gard the Know Nothing masses in Maryland. Louisiana, and Kentucky, as not only the most stupid of the stupid, but as being utterly lost to all sense of self-respect and self-preser vation. Nought but such an impression con cerning them can superinduce the belief that they will continue to strengthen the bauds of Mr Fillmore's northern fuglemen here, for working out the triumph of such coalition for such purposes. Mr Burwell.?Mr. Wm.M. Burwell, late editor of the Washington Organ, has resigned his seat in the Virginia Legislature, because he oannot longer act with the Know Nothing party against the election of Buchanan and Breckinridge His published letter of resig nation is able and interesting, and shows that those in the South who under any pretence seek to draw the South from the support of Buehanan and Breckinridge, are pursueing a course that must lead, if sucoessfal, to thede stmction of the rights and interests of their section of the confederacy. We shall to uxor r jw endeavor to find rpaoe wherein to refer more at length to this able latter. The Way of All (Know Nothing) Fl#?h - The proeeedingA of the bogus Old Line Whig State convention, reoently in session at Rich Bond, \ a , were as amusing as those of its late counterpart in Baltimore, and identical in tenor ; in other words, it was composed al most entirely of persons who, while steadily vot.ng and *pjutin* Know Nvnhingua, for years past, do not heaitate to admit t*?M they retain their former Whig sentiment* on all the old question?^'Vsue. A resolution pWgtfcs the members to be Whigs and not KmNTNothings, was very an ceremoniously voted down, or hannifuggted out of the way, it will be perceived from the accounts of their proceedings now beiog pub lished in naarlj all the newspapers The onlj solution of this aotion is, that, otherwise, the entire Know Nothingism of the gathering would hare been exposed to the gaie of those whose votes are designed to be entrapped by the act of the Know Nothing leaders in stook ing the delegations to these so-called Old Line Whig conventions. The Million to Mexico ?We are satisfied that the paragraph being published, sajing that John Forsytb, E*q., of Mobile, Alabama, haa been nominated to the Senate to be the American Minister to Mexico, vice Minister Gadsden, resigned, is prematura. Yet we be lieve that Mr F. bids fair to be selected for that so important position. We are very sure that no better or more acceptable appoint ment could be made. Mr. Forsyth is a gen tleman of high character and rare abilities, possessing much of that perspicacity, readi ness and acuteness of. intellect for which his father the late John Forsyth of Georgia, was so distinguished when In the public service Though comparatively young, no other man ol hij times has more thoroughly impressed him self on the popular mind in his own section of the confederacy. The Naval Promo iona ? The Senate are understood, yesterday, to have confirmed nearly all of the large batch of Naval pro motions growing out of the law for tho forma tion of a Retired List, &c. in the Navy of the United States. This bears out what we have published concerning the probable result Of the long senatorial controversy over the action of the late Naval retiring board. The Secretary of the Navy left Washing ton yesterday for the Fauquier White ?u' phur Springs, Va., where tho condition of his health makc9 it necessary that he should so journ for a short season.

The transactions in stocks for the past week have been large, but the market generally has been heavy, with a little recovery of firmoeis on yesterday. There seems to be no reason for this heaviness, and wo think pricos must advance. The demand for money is somewhat in ex cess of the supply, and, although no absolute pressure exists, rates are perceptibly higher. The quotations are on call 6 to 7 por oent ; for sixty and ninety day paper 7 to 8 per cent. This state of the market is caused, in part, by the combined heavy shipments of specie to Europe, and the temporary falling off in re ceipts from California. The New York bank statement for the week ending July 12th, shows a loss of $2,035,827 ; the loans and dis counts have increased $480,454; the depbeits have decreased $1,231,790, and the circula tion $231,715. The specie list of Wednes day's steamer was over $1,000,000, and a large shipment by the Baltic to-morrow is antici pated. LAND WARRANTS have advanced 3 cents per acre sinoe oar last report It is now confidently believed that the bill pending before Congress to make land warrants receivable on the reserved sec tions of railroad grants, and at the public land sales, will become a law thit session This belief has caused holders to decline sell ing at present rates, and has given firmness to the market, which makes the demand con tinue in exoess of the supply, producing a consequent steady rise. Should the market reach $1 per acre, the limit put upon large amounts lying in the market, the supply mugt be in excess of the demand. We advise all who have wa- ants to send them to market to be sold on the passage of the bill referred* to, as we are confident prices will be higher immediately on its passage than at any sub sequent period. We understand that the Governor of Iowa has called a special session of the Legislature to maka a disposition of the grants of lands in that State, whioh will be the means of speed ily bringing those lands into market again, and tend to enhance the value of warrants.
