SPIRIT OF TH* MOE1INO P&K8I The Inttlltgrnctr discusses the train of cir cumstances leading to the termination of the session yesterday without providing for the cost of the Armj of the United States for the next fiscal year. The editor pays : 44 It ia the first time in our history that such a thing haa happened, end in permitting it to happen now Congress has incurred a very we ghty responsibility. We shall aa aoon as poesible publish the able debate on the sub ject, that both aides may be heard, and the public be enabled to form Its own judgment aa to which of the two Houses the blame of the failure should rest upon The loss of the bill must occasion great embarrassment to the Executive, for the appropriations amounted to some twelve millions of dollars, and how sup J>liee are to be provided without authority of aw we cannot imagine. The army cannot be disbanded, and yet without money cannot long be kept together. Wo greatly regret that the difficulty was not forseen early enough to have given time for a short extension of the session, as was attempted by the Senate, but too late. A little time more, we cannot doubt, would have brought the two Houses to such an agree ment as would have passed the bill. But the inexorable hour of twelve arrived before the proposition could receive the sanction of the other House, and the session was ended. The editor falls into grave and important errors in this statement of the circumstances involving the loss of the bill. Thus it was clearly 14 foreseen early enough to have given time for a shoit extension of the session." M ore than a majority of the House voted to suspend the rules to that end. But the Re publican patty managers, who bad decreed the defeat of the appropriation bill to keep up the excitement in the Northern popular mind by insisting on the yeas and nays, first on the motion to suspend the rules to admit a resolu tion to extend the session for two hours, and then on the question of concurring in the Senate's resolution so extending the session, brought the House to a moment of time, (12 m. by their clock) when the Speaker sym pathising with their revolutionary purpose, might seem to the uninitiated to have an ex* cuse for usurping authority to terminate the session by his simple fiat?which in such a case was really of no more legally binding force than that? f the humblest member on the floor as we explain elsewhere to-day. The Vmon says of the circumstances obli ging the President to call an extra session of Congress, with great force and justice, indeed : 44 It will be seen from the foregoing procla mation that the President has felt it to be his duty, in view of the failure of Congress to make the necessary appropriations for the army, to convene Congress to meet again on Thursday next. No one who thinks of the disastrous consequences of disbanding the army under existing circumstances can fail to see the necessity for this measure. The con stitution imposes upon the President the solemn duty of seeing that the laws are executed, and to this end provides him with a military force for the common defence and security of the country. But Congress has failed to provide the means of supporting the men who compose the army. The constitution does, however, authorise the President, on extraordinary oc casions. to convene Congress; and as this is the only remedy in his hands for securing the means of maintaining the army, and, through that branch of the service, of preventing dis astrous consequences, he has promptly and wisely resorted to it. "A resort to this extraordinary remedy has been forced upon the Executive by the per sistans of a portion of one House of Congress in a measure whicn we have again and again characterised as factious and revolutionary. It has been persisted in with a full knowledge that it would defeat all appropriations for the atmy. and thus leave the public peace unpro tected, or of requiring an extra session of Congress The revolutionary measure had no legitimate connection with an appropria tion bill. The two Houses agreed on the ap propriation bill proper, but the House insisted on annexing an unusual and unconstitutional cocditi^n to the bill, and persisted in it until, finally, a factious minority resorted to the means of defeating the bill which we detail in another article. "We have now a practical illustration of the spirit which actuates the Republican leaders. It can no longer be question i that they are resolved to rule or to ruin the government. It is net necessary to conjecture whether the same spirit will not produce the same result at the extra session That is a matter lor Congress. The President has his duties to perform under the constitution, and he has resorted to the only power that he possesses to 6ee the laws executed and the peace of the country preserved. If the House of Repre sentatives chocse to persevere in their effort to coerce the Senate and the President, and by that means prevent the execution of the laws and the maintenance of peaco, the responsi ble W,1J Whcr? il PrrP?Iy belongs The President has done his duty ; the Senate has done its duty, end will do it again; the House has taken one perilous step in revolu tion, and it remains to be seen whether it will be repeated ."

How it Tti Done ?The following is the olauW inserted in the anny.ppropri.tion bill by the Republican party and the o ern Fillmore men acting with them, w c the failure to enact the so necewary measure : " Provided, hovwer, and it is hereby de clared, that no part of the the United States for ^he support of which appropriations are made by this act shall be employed in aid of the enforcement of any en actment of the body claiming to be the terri torial legislature of Kansas, until such enact ment* shall have been affirmed and approved by Congress : but this proviso shall not be so construed as to prevent the President from employing an adequate military force ; but it shall bo his duty to employ suoh force to pre vent the invasion of said Territory bj armed bands of non-residents, acting or claiming to act as a posse comitatus of any officer in said Territory in the enforcement of any such en actment, and to protect the persons and prop erty therein, and upon the national highways leading to said Territory, from all unlawful searches and seitures ; and it shall be his fur ther duty to take efficient measures to compel the return of and withhold all arms of the United States distributed in or to said Terri tory in pursuanoe of any law authorising the distribution of arms to the States and Terri tories." ' Three Committees of Conference reported upon the disagreement of the two Houses with reference to it?the House insisting on contin uing it in the bill, and the Senate insisting that it involved unconstitutional action on the part of Congress, and was, indeed, wholly out of place in a general appropriation bill. The last Committee of Conference upon it reported the Senate as early as 10J a. m , recom mending the body (Senate) to insist on striking out the above provision. The Senate, after able debate, did insist, and so notified -the House. In the House, it was moved to insist, and the question being put, a majority voted in the negative. At that moment it wanted half an hour of 12 m. It was manifested clearly by that vote that a majority were ready to recede. Mr. Millson, to save the bill, which could not otherwise have been accomplished, moved to extend the session two hours. Then fol lowed factious motions and votes on the part of the Republicans, as well as a factious ruling on the part of the Speaker, that the onsideration of Mr. Millaon's motion or reso lution required a two-third vote?which were all designed to kill time. A few more than a third of the House-all Republican mem bers?voted against considering the resolution of extension. While the vote in the House last above re ferred to was being taken by yeas and nays, the Senate passed a resolution extending the session two hours, and at five minutes before 12 m. it was taken up by the House. When the hands of the House clock arrived at 12 m. the Speaker arose to arrest the Clerk in call ing the yeas and nays that had been moved and ordered by the Republicans to defeat the consideration of the Senate's resolution. Here Mr. Millson rose to a point of order, and made his call on the attention of the Speaker heard by all in the hall, though the Speaker himself disregarded it and instantly pronounced the House adjourned sine die. Mr Millson's point of order, we learn, would have been, that as the Senate had rescinded thefadjourning resolution, and the House was engnged in considering whether it would also rescind, it was not competent for the Speaker to interpose arbitrarily to arrest the progess of the vote, Thus was the revolutionary policy of the majority of the House commenced in the adoption of the proviso presented above, con sumated by the Speaker and his managing political friends. % Oregon.?It will be seen that the President in his proclamation points at the existing state of affairs in Oregon. In the whole his tory of civilization we question whether the indifference manifested by the present Con gress to the sufferings of the people in Oregon and the prospective dangers surrounding them, has been paralleled by the authorities of any nation having within their reaeh the means, as the American Congress have, of promptly giving the necessary relief and assuring to the menaced safety for the future. W e have nar rowly watched the bearing as well as the im mediate action of tho House upon the affairs of Oregon throughout the protracted session that terminated yesterday, and it has really seemed to us as though cach suocecding sue .cess of the Indians over the whites, as it was reported at this point, seemed to render them (tho House) more callous to the demands of coinmcn humanity. In their utter indifference to their duty with reference to the existing State of affairs in Oregon, appeared to us that instead of tak ing common sense views of what might be in cumbent on them in the premises, they seemed day by day to bo more anxious to ignore the existence of persons in that far-off region who are as clearly entitled to the solicitous care of the General Government, as any citizen of any Atlantic State. The wailings of one runaway negro doubtless went nearer to the heart of the Republican party majority, or, rather plurality of tho body, than the cries of the remnants of the massacred settlements of the far off Territory. This fact illustrates most forcibly the dangerous tendency of the pres ent condition of American politics. Commodore Forrcat ?On the 15th inst. Com* modore Valette succeeded Commodore French Forrest in command of the Washington Navy Yard, tho latter having been ordered to the command of the United States squadron on the coast of Brazil, as we announced some weeks since. Ere he retired from his late command, the following correspondence, highly complimentary to him, passed between Com modore F. and the civil officers employed in the Washington Navy Yard, wherein the for mer acted virtually as a committee on the part of the fifteen or sixteen hundred of our fellow citizens employed by the Government in that establishment: Navy Yard, Washington, ) August 15, 1856. ) Sir : Understanding that you are about to retire from the command of this Yard, to as sume more important duties on a foreign sta tion, the undersigned, who have been so inti mately associated with you on duty here, can not permit the opportunity to pass without ex pressing the high estimation they entertain [?'7?U " ??c*r and a gentleman.

I had hoped to have remained in command here until the improvements recommended by me could be completed, not the least import ant of which was the purchase of some adja cent land for the enlargement of the Yard But my official duties call me hence; I am soon to be engaged on foreign service, and let me bo where I may it will ever be a source of pleasure to me to revert to the harmoneous and kind feeling which has been so uninter rupted between us. Accept, gentlemen, assurances of my high regard and esteem, with best wishes for your health and happiness. F. Forbest. To Messrs. Poox, Sanokr. McNkrhahv, and other civil officers of the Navy Yard. It has been long indeed since a more popu lar commander graced that station. Born and reared in this immediate vicinity, Commodore Forrest is more nearly identified with the civilians who were under him in the Wash ington Navy Yard than any other officer of his grade in the United States naval service. It is not remarkable, therefore, that being a gentleman of great urbanity and infinite tact, the employees there part with him with great regret, rigid disciplinarian though he is. The Speaker Revolutionising ? Hundreds in the House Hall yesterday were struck with the eagerness displayed by Speaker Banks to carry out the purpose of tho Republican par ty leaders of bringing the session to an end without the enactment of the Army Appropri ation bill, with or without their Republican party proviso. His assumption of authority te declare tho session at an end was a gross and palpable usurpation. That was the func tion of the House only, who alone had au thority to doclare that tho time for it had arrived. It was bis business only to an nounce that 12 m. had arrived by the clock of tho House, and it was the business of the House to determine whether they would then adjourn, or continue in session to any hour of the day. It . has repeatedly been decided that the adoption of a resolution fixing a particular hour of a day for the termination of a session involves no legal obligation to adjourn atthat hour of the particular day, and that the House (considering the subject) alone has tho power to determine at what precise moment of the particular day they will adjourn. The elabo rate speech of John Quincy Adams upon this particular point is regarded as standard au thority upon it by all parliamentarians, and is in direct and glaring contradiction to the usurpation of Speaker Banks to which we re fer above. In the Senate, Mr. Vice-President Bright, who was not administering the functions of bis position for political ends, usurped no such authority. He awaited a vote of the Senate that they were ready to adjourn somo time after the hands of the clook in their chamber signified that 12 m. had arrived ; and then he adjourned the Senate only after the announce ment that the House had dispersed under the revolutionary order to that end fulminated by Speaker Banks. The United States War Brig Bainbridge. Some of the newspapers having intimated fears of the loss of this ship, we have great pleasure in announcing her return to Montevideo on the 12th of June last, from her cruise to the Straits of Magellan, on which she set out in March last. Her errand was to relieve the crew of the American ship Manchester, wrecked in those Straits. On arriving at the scene of her disaster it was found that the only two survi vors of the Manchester's crew had been res cued by another ship. The Bainbridge, how ever, was so fortunate as to rescue the crew of the ship Western Bride, of Liverpool, Eng land, from the Chincha Islands, bound for Queenstown, Ireland, with a cargo of guano, also wrecked in the same Straits, and carried them-thirty-one souls in all?to Montovide<. All were well on the Bainbridge. Terribly Disappointed.?The Republican party members were furious last night over the President's proclamation calling Congress to meet on the day after to-morrow. The law had been over-ridden to compass their ends of defeating the army appropriation bill in order to keep up the excitement about Kansas until after tho first Monday in No vember. They trembled in their shoes least the country might comprehend their purpose of setting constitution, law, and every thing else at defiance that should be regarded in order to effect a political objeot. On hearing of tho proclamation thoy comprehended at once that they had caught themselves only in their trap, and were thereupon very indignant indeed. Ere midnight many others were curs ing the folly of the counsels under which they havo been trying of late to revolutionise. Appointments Confirmed by the Sen*te. John F.
