SPIRIT OF THB MORNING PRESS The Union reviews the financial transac tions of John C. Fremont with the Govern ment in connection with early California affairs to prove that they were rotten to the core with corruption, and eoncludos as follows : " From these extraordinary financial per formances, we can well understand how those men who are bankrupt themselves, and who have contributed to bankrupt their States, and would bankrupt Uncle Bam if they could were so enthusiastic in cheering for Fremont' If elected, could he well deny his leading supporters privileges at money making cor responding with those formerly enjoyed by himself. If they should follow the prece dents set by him, would not the speculations prove splendid ? It is certainly natural that such prospects should rejuvenate the dilapi dated and inspirit the decayed politician to the greatest possible exertion*. Fremont was mainly nominated by this class. What will those who sustain themselves by honest indus try say to the Mariposa and cattle specula "onsr W ill they give either their approval>.' * The Intelligencer is, to-day, devoted to Congressional matters. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP Legislation. Ibe Senate yesterday were for a time gravely engaged on a proposition to spend public money on experiments to test the applicability of sending the mails of the I nited States over tho country through an exhausted tube by me^nsof atmospheric pre9 * scheme in which men of science gen erally have little faith, as far as we can per ceive. If we are not mistaken, about the only machines to carry great weights long distances, the power being atmospheric pres sure, wL.oh have succeeded in practioe, though experiments have been made with such from the commencement of civilisation d? wn to to-day, are the ordinary ship's sails. There is a machine on exhibition ia the ro tunda of the Capitol for the navigation of the air, (by balloon.) carrying passengers and freight, which, the inventor is satisfied, will be perfectly under the navigator's controj when suspended between heaven and earth. Sails and ruJder are to control its move mentj. \\ by don't the Senate devote a day or so to that 7 So we go The Public School Celebration ?We be fipeak a very large attendance of our fellow - citizens of the Federal Metropolis at the Pub lic School celebration to come tff on Monday next. Those charged with the task of getting it up have exerted themselves with proper spirit to make its ceremonies imposing, and its uflaerces upon the thousands of children who will participate in it very beneficial. The question of their succe.=?. however, is in volved in that of the number cf adults who lend them their countenance on the occasion. -the Public Schools of Washington may easily fce made equal to any in the United htates. 1 his is to be accomplished, however, only by general public interest in them. As the public manifest interest in them so will they prove effective for good results, and only in ratio with the manifestation of that interest. The District.?It is to be hoped that on Monday next the House will consent to set apart two or three days for the consideration of business prepared by the District Commit tee Its members are careful and laborious gentlemen for the most part, and have devoted themselves faithfully to the discharge of their duty. We really believe that there never was before a Hou?e District Committco whose recommendations, one and all, were bo ccn acientiously made, and were made after so laborious and careful investigations. Tfce?e facts shouM entitle their suggestions with reference to the requirements of the public iotfrj?t at this point to more than ordinary consideration on the f art of their fellow rnem The Drought ?The farms and gardens in this vicinity are luffering greatly for want of rain. The drought is already making serious ly against remunerative fall crops. We have had much experience in tilling the ground in this vicinity, and know a remedy which so far has ;,ever failed us in tho matter of guarding against the otherwise disastrous effects of such a season as this in which we seem to be enter ing The seoret lies in deep (sub soil) plough ing and heavy manuring. The twoexpedients together, have not failed us, when applied, once in the last seven years Internal Improvements.? The veteran Richmond Enquire, raises a warning voice against the system of internal improvements by the General Gorarmeut now being urged on Congress. That journal represents a pow erful interest in the Democratic party, which will not eensent to givo up its time-honored principles upon tLe internal improvement question; more especially because it regards the threatened abandonment of the creed of the Democratic party on this subject as bat a prelude to its abandonment of its cherished positions on other question* involving the powers and duties of the General Government wherein the schools of Monroe, Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton were at iame. The Privateenmen s Bill?The recent speech of Mr. Davis of Massachusetts, was a capital defence of the interests of his constit uents as involved in this measure. It was evidently prepared with great care and re search, and embraced more sterling and effec tive argument* in favor of regarding thote who have served their country on privateer?, co-equal with thoe? who have served in the regular navy of the Uniteu .States, so far aj the distribution of the country's atipr gratui ties and rewards is concerned, than were ever before LrougLt to the knowledge and notiee of Congress The constituents of Mr. Davie ?we him much, indeed. The Steamship.?The was vis ited throughout tLe course of y-sterday by a large n?mt>?r of gentlemen and ladies, in every description of failing craft on the Poto mec that eould be pressed into the service.

In the Senate, yesterday, aft9r we went to press, they laid over until next Friday, the bills to renew the reaping machine patent* of Obed Hussey and Moore and Hascall, and passed bills for the relief of Charles Stearns, J. E Martin. Franklin Peale, John Munson, and Joseph Graham. On motion of Mr. Yulee, the bill requiring prepayment on all transient printed matter transported in the mails was next taken up, and passed Two reports were made by Mr. Johnson f0Ink- t Mlhtftry Affair* Committee, neither of which were finally disposed of, ere they adjourned over until Monday. In the House, after accepting the invitation to vi*it the steamship Vanderbilt at 4 p. m. to-day, the balance of the day's session was fur the most part devoted to the consideration of prlvato bills, a number of which were pas*" ed ere they took a rccess until 7pm On re assembling nt that hour thev were addressed in Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, on political topics, by Messrs. Crawford, Jewett, Cox, Barksdale, and Reade. At lu p m. the Committee rose, and the House adjourned. Proceedings ef Te-Day. In the House, this morning, up to the hour at which we went to press, they were engaged on private business (bills) of no interest to the public at large. * PERSONAL. i ?Her*)er^ M.

The merits of Mr. Doughty, as an artist, are well known to those who have interested themselves in the growth of art in this country. He was a careful observer of nature, not forming his style upon any favor* ite model, so that his manner, though not iif tensely peculiar, was decidedly characteristic. Mr. Doughty, notwithstanding his fine powers, was not fortuuate in his profession as a means of pecuniary gain He struggled with pov erty through life, and his last days were em bittered by want. ....Mr. and Mrs Florence had been play lrg with unqualified success in Liverpool, and were engaged for two weeks at the Glasgow Theatre: ?'

" Phantom Trains.?We understand that numbers of our cititens and persons living in the country on the line of railroad, have betn considerable mistified and no little alarmed by a singular fact recently noticed on repeat ed occasions. Between the hours of 11 and 12 o'olock at night, the approach of a train of cars has been plainly heard, tho shriek of the whisle and the rumbling of the train increas ing in distinctness until the oars raaoh Staun ton Depot and stopped. Persons hive gone to the depot to find out the cause of an arrival at so unusual an hour.

We incline to tie belief that the local re porter of the Intelligencer haa been either sold or duped in regard to the attempt to cut down the Democratic pole in our city on Tues day evening. We admit the fact that rivalry in business might have been one of the causes; but to suppose that politics had nothing to do with it, is perfectly preposterous Tuesday night was not the first time the attempt was made, a similar one was made on the 3d of July, before the jealousy in business between the parties heretofore mentioned sprang up, and Magee's house pelted with stones for helping to protact the pole from destruction. Simms took no part whatever in that attempt He was not a member of the Democratic As sociation.* Neither branch of our City Councils was in session last night, owing to there not being a quorum of the Council in attendance. Owing to a deficiency of water in the canal, in the vicinity of Dam No. 4, there have been but few arrivals this week. The offerings of beef cattle at Drover's Rest, yesterday, amounted to 300 head; 150 of which were sold to District butchers at S3* $1 25 on the hoof, equal to S6aS8 50 nett, the balance (150 head) were driven on to Balti more. Sheep $2a$3 12J per head. No change in the flour and grain markets. Stock of the former very light.
