EVEN TNG STAR. ?* A 6 H IWOTOH CI T T s MONDAY August 11, l?6tt. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS The Union calls attention to the spcech of Senator Thomson of N J , delivered on Satur day last, reviewing the military career and gov ernment financial affairs of Fremont, in Cali fornia, which that journal publishes. It makes the far fly,bejcnd all question. We have rare ly read a more seathing exposure of the bum baggeiy of reputation made by intrigue. The Union also notes the fa?t that Senator Jones, of Tennessee delivered an eloquent and very able speech in favor of Buchanan and Breck inridge, whom H is b's purpose to support hereafter. We further find in tb9 Union the following extract from the Nashville Union of August 19, 184 J, copied into the Washing ton Globe (Blair's) of August 31, 1844, in reference to a great Democratic meeting that had ju-t taken place at Nashville : " The Hon. Linn Boyd of Kentucky, was to have addressed the meeting on the second day, but in the progress ot the discussion, Maj. A J. Doneleon, who was in the chair in the absence cf the president, announced to the meeting that he had jost received a note from Mr. Boyd, informing him that an accident in the overturning of a carriage containing his family in the morning?in which, however, no serieus personal injury had been sustained? would prevent him fiom being present to ad dress toe meeting Major Donelson on miking this annunciation, called the attention of the meeting to the fact that Mr. Boyd teas the distinguished Kentuckian who had charged and proved upon Mr. Clay, in his place in Congress the charge of "bargain, intrigue and corruption" in the Presidential elec tion t?/"1825, and who had been sustained by his constituents in his course. He, there fore, proposed nine cheers for Liun lioyd and the Democracy of his dtstrict." Will our amiable, talented and ingenuous neighbor please copy? By sj doing it will really shed light on the question?who did ma'ign Henry Clay about " bargain, intrigue mud management?"?which ofla'shas been the theme of most of its unfounded assaults on Mr. Buchanan.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. From Missouri ?The Very Lateet We have a private dispatch to-day from St. Louis from a gentleman in whose judgment we have every confidence, who says to us : " Polk is certainly elected Governor. The States' del egation in the next Congress stands four Dem ocrats, two Know Nothings, and Blair"?who will, of course, be crawfishing back to the Democrats after November, if not sooner. A Character.?Among the most amusing circumstances of the present Presidential can vass is the fuss which the Republican news papers are making over one Philip Dorshiemer, of Buffalo, N. Y., a convert to their party, of course, or he would be, in common with others of his countrymen, the subject of the anathe mas of many of them on account of the land of bis nativity, rather than, as at present, the theme of their unstinted praise Up to the hour on which it became oertain that the pres ent Administration had determined not to re appoint him postmaster of Buffalo, from which office (under the Polk Administration's ap pointment) its predecessor removed him, he was the very loudest-mouth Democrat in his professions among the horde who swarmed to Washington on the acccssion of Pierce. From the stoop of Willards' hotel he would preach, by long hours, to any and every body, about the importanoe of his services to the Democ racy in the last canvass, and his remarkable influence over the Germans throughout the Great West. The real English of the broken English in which he was accustomed on such occasions to deliver himself, to the annoyance of thftse whom he held by the button-hole and the infinite amusement of the constitutional wags about town, (who at length listened for the delivery of his daily half jeremiad and half stump speech in gibberish regularly, as the standing joke of the season,) was, that he was about the most important man west of the Alleghaniea; and that not to satisfy him would be to throw off from the support of tho Ad ministration the whole Gorman born vote of the country. He was refused, perhaps more than anything else on account of the impu dent swaggering which at times characterized his office begging, and the mean sorvility that marked it at other times. He has fairly kept his promise of undying hostility to the Democratic cause, unless " de Demogradic bardy" would give him office. Hundreds now in Washington remember well bis behavior when seeking office here to hate b? jn just as we describe it; while, perhaps, thousands in and about Buffalo are equally well aware that the origin of his Republican ism is his disappointed selfishness. The Re publican press of New York are jubt now ma king a great fuss over a letter from his pen, wher:in he professes to have changed his politics from honest, honorable, and patriotic motives. Their lavish praises of this Swiss bring forcibly to our mind the scenes to which we refer above, on which we took occasion to comment when they occurred, to the infinite amusement of our readers. His system of offioe-seeking was so sublimely impudent at one moment, so mean at another, and so dis gusting throughout all its phases, as to hav? offered us about the very fairest mark for il lustrating the ruling passion of the small beer politicians ot the day, which it has been our fortune to point pen at since mounting the Star's tripod. He is essentially a poor devil, politically, this "honorable" Philip Dorshie ner, and will abuse the Republicans after they have Ufed him, if they have anything what ever to give, quite as roundly as ho now abuses tho present Administration. For, we take it for granted, they by this time know him too woll to take him at his own valuation of himself ; or, in other words, to bestow office on him. The 8ectional Candidate.?The mo?t child ish subterfuge of the hour to avoid tho point of the serious charge that the Republican party is essentially a scotional organization, and on that account is exceedingly dangerous to the future pea ;e of the Union, if not to ita much longer duration, is that both the Presi dent and Yice President have heretofore been elected from the same section of the Union without the generation of consequences such a* are predicted from the election of Fremont and Dayton. There never was before in the field a great party formed upon the single principle of warring on the guarantied consti tutional rights and the interests of a section of the Confederacy; which is the real element of the so great danger to the Union to flow from ? triumph of the Republican pa^ty. It is not because Mr. Fremont is a citizen of New York, and Mr. Dayton a citizen of New Jersey, that such apprehensions grow out of the possibility of their election ; but because they bear aloft a banner inscribed with death to the constitu tional rights and interests of the South ; be cause their followers, without exception, preach throngh the press and from the stump vehement abuse of, and bitter hatred to, all things Southern, proclaiming that they seek to elect them only that they may reduce the South to a system of vassalage to the North, wholly unknown to the principles of the Con stitution of the United States, and to the pur j poses for which the South came into the Con federacy. To suppose that the South will remain in the Union with its government in the hands of persons professing the sentiments and aims characterising tho speeches of nearly every Republican in Congress who has spoken in the course of the session on tho slavery ques tion, will be to conclude that it (the South) is dead to all sense of self-preservation, and is willing to court a fate a'mott precisely par allel with that which British abolitionism brought on the British West Indies not long since. We know that it is fashionable for Republican party orators to protest the pur pose of keeping bands off elavery in tho States But we also know that nearly evory Republi can spec eh Is made up of the bitterest ha. trad towards the South, of fierce denunciation of the South, of arrogant assumptions of supe riority to and over the South, and of pleas in favor of the existence of power in the North to work out the very purposes against the South which they (the Republican orators) hypocritically protest they do not entertain. The South has seen too clearly in the legisla tion of this session that neither the obliga tions of justice, truth, law nor constitution, afford tfce slightest barrier to their efforts to earry into practice their peculiar views upon the slavery question, to fail to seak promptly to protect themselves against the certain con tingencies of a Republican party triumph in November neat. Tho Independerce.?Wfi bave arcrrtHin'.J, I by iLquiiy uttLe^avy Department, thattleir latest advioes from Valparaiso are only to the 31rt of May. The retains to the Bureau of Provisions show that the " Independence," on sailing from San Fr*nci?co, had on board/*// rations, sufficient to last until June 30th for the number of men then drawing rations Though the ship had not arrived at Valparaiso as soon as was anticipated, there is not yet cause for much apprehension with regard to her safety. Another Veto.?We give below a copy of the message cf the President this moving transmitted to the House of Representatives, returning a bill " for continuing the improve ment of the Desmoines Rapids in the Missis sippi river. The reasons assigned are the same as those previously given by President Pierce in messages to Congress, lie holds that the Federal Government has no power to mako the appropriation because the work is local, not national, and is part of a general system of internal improvements which two National Democratic Conventions have sol emnly declared " Congress has no power to commence and carry on." We eongraulate the country upon this act which gives renewed assurance that there is at the head of the Re public a statesman who has the intelligence to appreciate and comprehend, and the cour age to defend the sacred guarantees of the constitution. To the House of Representatives : I return herewith to the House of Represen tatives, in which it originated, a bill entitled " An ast for continuing the improvement of the Des Moines Itapius, in the Mississippi river," and submit it for re consideration, be cause it is. in my judgment, liable to the ob jections to the prosecution of internal improve ments by the General Goveiument set foith at length in a communication addressed by me to tho two houses of Congress on the thir teenth day of December, 1854, and in other subsequent messages upon the same subject, to which, on this occasion. I respectfully refer. Fiu^kuh Pierce Washington, August 11, 1850. The Condition of the Business ?Those who anticipate necessity for an extension of the present session of Congijes beyond the 18th inst., to grow out of the stato of business in their hall, aro in error. It has bun some years, wo beHeve, &:nce the ganeral business was more forward at a couesponding period of the session.

Mr. Jones of Tennessee, next addressed the Senate on political topics, defining his position to be that of a supporter of Buchanan and Brcckinridge. Mr Bell also defined his political position to be that of a supporter of Fillmore, without being a member of the American party. Atter the transaction of some other business, in tbe course of which Messrs. Wilson and Foot made political speeches, they adjourned. In the House, the Indian appropriation bill was passed The civil appropriation bill, as reported from the Committee of the Whole, was next taken up. The amendment of Mr. Ball, requiring that hereafter military officers of the Government shall not superintend other than military government works, and transferring the di rection of the work on tho extension of the capitol and tho post office department Build ing from the Secretary ef War to tbe Secre tary of tho Interior, was agreed to?yeas 93, noes 30 The amendment of Mr. Tyson appropriating $20,000 for ornamenting the Capitol with such works of art as may be approved by the Joint Library Committee to be placed in either wing of the extension, was agreed to?ayes 91, noes 21 The amendment appropriating $5,000 for re building the Franklin engine house, including the purchase of a suitable lot, Ac , was also agreed to?ayes 74, noes 47. The question was next taken on the follow ing amendment, inserted in the bill, on motion of Mr. Uolloway, of Indiana : " For the collection of agricultural statis tics, investigations for promoting agricultural and rural eoonomy, and the procurement and distribution of cuttings and seeds, $75,000. to bo expended under the direction of the Com missioner of Patents: Provided, That the Commissioner shall report to Congress the va rious kinds of seeds to be purchased under this appropriation, and from whom and where ob tained, and tho cost of the same. The question was taken, and the amendment was agreed to. The question was then stated to be on the amendment directing the accounting officers of the treasury to settle and pay to tne public printer tho increased compensation allowed bv the joint resolution No 18, approved July 3u, 1054, upon tho printing ordered prior to the repeal of said resolution, as applicable to tho said prnter bj the a it of May 15, 1850, to supply deficiencies in appropriations for the service of the fiscal yoar ending June 30,1850. The-question was taken, and the amend ment was disagreed to -yeas 37, nays 130. The bill, as amended, was then read a third time and passed. Sundry private bills were next passed. Mr. Sherman, in a personal explanation, re plied to late remarks of Mr. Savage concern ing tbe conduct of the Kansas ComtcitUe, de nying their allegations, and protesting against their tone At a lafe hour they again went iuto com mittee, (Mr. Hickman in the chair,) wherein the Post Offico appropriation bill was taken up, and they took a recess until 7 p. m. On re-assembling at 7 o'clock, political speeohes were made by Messrs Billinj?urst, Norton, Kelly, Foster, snd Harris of 111, un til tbey rose; when tbe Housa adjourned. Proceeding* *1 Ts>Dty.

In tho House, the bill reported on Satur day by Mr. Cobb of Ala., from the Public Lands Committee, to enable the owners of land warrants to locate them on any public lands subject to entry whether the minimum price shall be $1 25 per acre or more, was laid on the table. Mr. Campbell of Ohio, reported from the Ways and Means Committee, a bill to reduce the tariff on imports, the consideration of which was postponed until the next session. Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, also moved to sus Knd the rules for the consideration of a reso tion calling on the Executive for certain specific information connected with the reve nue from customs' duties on articles named ; rules suspended, and resolution amended and passed. A message from the President was next re ceived, vetoing the bill for tha improvement of the Des Moines rapids in the Mississippi; and the question being put on the passage of the bill over the President's veto, it was so passed ?yeas 103, nays 54.

POLITICAL ITEMS. The Louisa? 1 lo Journal, of the 6th inst., is very qu'et about the result of tho okction in Kentucky. This is a bad sign for tho Fill more party. The Indianapolis (Ind ) D^'ly State Senti nel says Fusioc'sts regard John Charies Fre mont only ps a sort of appendage to their ticket, hooked on for mere convenience sake ? a simple John Doe in the suit which fhe poli ticians of the party are trying for their own benefit. ? In the lata spaech of David Paul Brown, E?q., of Philadelphia, at Faneuil Hall, Bos ton?ho sind that both Fillmore and Fre mont were tried men, the only diCwrcnco was, that Fillmore was a:quiu?jd and Fremont convicted. The Richmond (Va.) Whig says there is such a fervor among the Germans for Fremont that it would not bo astonished if a ticket were started in that State for the especial benefit of our Democratic Republican fellow citixens of the Tenth Legion. Tho Norfolk Southern Argus publishes the , names of the papers on its exchange list, with their political creed, with the following recap itulation : Northern papers?Buchanan, 18; Fremont, 7; Fillmore, 1 Southern papers? Buchanan, 42; Fillmore, 20. The Alton (111.) Democrat states, as one of the effects of two churches in that city bcoom ing political as well as religious sanctuaries, that some of their members are getting into very worldly ways. " One pew owner in Rev. Mr. Haley'6 church offers to bet his pew (eli gibly situated, and valued at $100,) against a pew in Rev Mr. Norton's church, on the re sult of the general election in November." Tho Richmond Enquire says : The suppor ters of Fillmore in the South belong to two very distinct classes of men. The one oonsists of the busybodies, the wireworkers, the oow boys and Dalgettys of the Know Nothing party?men who are found about court houses and other villages and places of public resort, who have tried all means of getting along and failed at all, and who, finding themselves in capable of managing their own affairs, feel confident that they are fitted to manage those of other people and of the nation. This is the officeseeking and aotive portion of Fillmore's Southern friends The other class of Mr. Fill more's Southern friends are Old Line Whigs, well to do in the world, lazy, amiable, selfish good uatured men, who would not spoil their digestion to save the nation. Thoy think Fill more is too timid to do anything rash or pre cipitate, and that he will temporixe and keep off violent change, disunion or revolution whilst they live; and, good natured souls, they are ready to lot posterity and the rising generation take care of themselves Counterfeits?All persons are cautioned against purchasing any of the "Balu or Thousand Flowers," unless each label is signed by Fetridge \ Co.
