EVENING STAR. WASHIXQTON CITY: ? HOBDAY AmguH 24, 18*6. jpr Advertisement* should be handed in by 11 o'clock, m., otherwise they may not appeal mntll the next day. SPIBiT OF THS MORNING PRESS. The Union, io a powerful article, exposes the humbuggery of the attempt of those seek* ing to revolutionise the Government, to gene rate the impression that the cause of their party in Congress as against the rest of the Government of the United States, is parallel with that of tho people of England, as against the 8tnarts?and all that sort of nonsense. The Intelligencer urges compromise between the two Houses of Congress. While arguing that the obnoxious laws of the Legislature of Kansas are a blur on the civilisation of. the the editor contends that the remedy pro pared for them l?y the Republican majority of one vote in the House, involves usurpation on the part of that majority of the functions of the Executive; and is therefore more dan than the evil it seeks to cure. lie (the editor) advises the repeal of the territorial laws in question, by Congrew, and points to the alleged fa^t that both the Senate and House have em phatically condemned them. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Tho Controversy.?With the exception of a aingle fea.ure thereof, the two Houses of Con gresa agree perfectly concerning every item of the army appropriation bill. That feature?the proviso?is not germain to the measure and ia an unusual one. It is legislation to subserve a political end incorporated :n an appropria tion bill. In all cases of disagreement such a) the one to which we refer, it is the duty o* the House suggesting the matter to which the other Hou;e demurs, to recede; as the Con ritution clearly declares that nothing shall be come a law to which both Houses do not con sent. In insisting on engrafting a matter of political legislation, intensely obnoxious to four-fifths of the Senate, upon an appropria tion bill, the majority of one member of the House are as clearly seeking to force the for mer body to puss a measure repugnant to its sense of duty ai d right, as though that major ity planted cancon at the doora of the Senate chamber, and, with match in h<*nd, demanded Its enactment. There is deep meaning in the attitude of this majnity of one. The poiut it seeks thus to compass is a part of the plan of rev^lu'i >n inaugurated in the action of the Legislature of Massachusetts in nullifying the fugitive slave law. From tbe moment that Legislature de clared the fugitive slave law inoperative within tbe limits of its jurisdiction, it has been without power and legal effeet therein. Mass achusetts is now in open practical rebellion against that law in this course of conduct, she has been f llowcd by Connecticut Ver mont, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Each of those States, though thus in open rebellion to a law of the United States solemnly pro nounced to be constitutional by the supreme judiciary of oar country, sends Representa tives here to defeat the appropriation bills, and break up the Government If they now succeed in carrying their point* their next revolutionary attempt will be to refuse to rajs the general (or executive, legis lative, acd judicial appropriation} bill, unless Congress will so legislate in connection with that measure as practically to roverse the de cision cf the Supreme Court with reference to the rights of the owners cf fugitive slaves They will follow up the same policy in legis lating cn other appropriation bills whenever they may desire to compa?s the trumph of a new aggression on the slavebcldiDg States. Their policy is thus to stop tie wheels of the government whenever they desire to revolu tionise it io any particular feature. It is high time that the South should com prehend this game of theirs in all its length and breadth. The South entered the Union on certain stipulated conditions, guaranteeing to her certain rights. Were she asked to sur render them all at once, we know that she does not contain a son among her citizens who would hesitate to prefer dissolution to contin uance in such a uuion as that of tbe States of this confederacy would be after acquiescence in such a eourse. on her part The policy of the revolutionary party of the North, however, is to effect its end of abolishing one by one the guaranteed rights of the South under the con stitution. simp'y because i* (that majority) is well awa/e that it is ea.-icr to u^urp and de stroy by easy stages, than by a bold and manly attempt to accomplish all at wbhh it aims, at a single blow. Forewarned, Is, or ought to be, forearmed. The Pretence ?The following summary of the actual state of things in Kansas, truthful to the letter, which we take from the Journal cf Com merce of Saturday latt, embraces, without being designed so to do, a glaring ex posure of the utter falsity of the plea that the proviso is necessary to prevent the u bor der ruffians" from committing outrages on their political opponents in the Territory. Who can read it without comprehending that, in tucL a stale of things, the proviso is merely a political movement to compass the aggres sion on the 8outh involved in the purpose of excluding slavery from Kansas by direct inter ference on the part of the General Govern ment "Th? ?ws from Kansas ?Unless the ad Tjee9 from Kansas are greatly exaggerated, civil war has commenced there in earnest' and from the simultaneous and systematic operations of the assailants, i. o , the '/'ree State men, it is pretty clear that their action was preconcerted Farther, we sho0u not as? si? iv ? near tfce adjournment ot" C- n out')ra*l? until wbichwas known nearly,,^ adjournment took c>&o?.U " H Wore the culate 1 that the *?*'>???

(The Journal then goes in to sift tho latest telegraphic dispatches, relative to the report ?d attack on Franklin, Lecompton, the Tread well settlement, etc , etc.) " Here then are five, if not six places at tacked almost simultaneously by Free State F??T 2? n! ne bT P? d^ery men.

It is well, perhaps, that Congress is In session, that they may see that the Re public suffers no detriment If they were m a better mood themselvae. they would have no great difficulty in quieting the disturbances in Kansas But it is to be feared that many persons. North and South, an willing to see the war go on, and would tot oare if it ex tended over the whole Union. ?' It is worthy of remark that the Free State men no longer respect the United States an | thorities or troops, but wage war upon them whenever they have an object to accomplish by it The higher law doctrines which have been preached to them for some time past, in connection with the rifles which have been fruit!?'*** *^?m, now yi?ld their appropriate Discontent ?At leaat half of those in the Hoase steadily voting for the unconstitutional political proviso, sought to be forced on the Senate against the judgment of four fifths of that body, are satisfied in their own minds that they are doing wrong, end really wish it de feated. Dread of the effect of demagogism at home on their individual politioal future if they dare vote what they believe to be right in this matter, has alone kept them so far up to this work of Messrs. Greeley, Giddings, Grow A Co Many of those to whom we refer, who are strong sympathisers with the cause of no slavery in Kansas, are also greatly dissatisfied with the miserable politioal use to which their dictators are putting that cause. Nevertheless, we have no reason to antici pate the change of a single voter among them all Such a thing as personal independence amongst them no longer exists. They follow the lead of Mr. Grow, under thrf shouts of Mr. Giddings, and tho lash of Mr. Greeley, with no apparent realiiation that the Constitution designed them to be free agent.*. Talk about the slavery of a southern plan tation. where all hands turn out at the sound of tho bell or horn, tremble at the voice of the overseer, and do their allotted tasks day by day ! Why, it is a mere circumstance to what one may now witness on the part of those in the House hall, who are laboring with might and main to revolutionise the Government of the United States, though at least half of them are as discontented with their task mas ters a* ever plantation negroes were with theirs.

The Weston Weekly Platte Argus wants half a doten game chickens, to crow over the Demoeratic victory in Missouri. The Know Nothing editors begin to think these State elections no great indioatioos as to a Presidential election, no how. Hon. Thomas Corwia has signified his in tention to rote for Fremont and Dnytoa at the next election The New York Herald states that it only cifonlates now two thousand copies in all the Southern States. The Democrats of Delaware have nominated Col. Wm G. Whiteley for Congress, and George C. Gordon, Dr. Henry Ridgeley and Charles Wright for Presidential electors. The New York Tribune in a despondent ar title admits that though " the Fillmore ticket can by no possibility poll one-fifth of the peo flie's votes in either Connecticut. Indiana. II inois or Pennsylvania; yet it may possibly poll anti-Buchanan votes enough in either of these States to give the electoral vote to Buch anan." The following States will hold their elections previous to the contest for the Presidency : Vermont Sept. 2 Pennsylvania....Oct 14 Ca'lfornla Sept 4^ Ohio Oct 14 Maine Sept 8 Indiana ....Oct 14 Piorida Oct 6 South Carolina..Oct. 14 The State election n Illinois for Governor and Congress take* plaoe November 4th, the same day as the election for President The leading paper of the Republican party of New York, the morning Courier and En quirer, in a long and beseeching article, seem ingly addressed to its Republican eotempora ries confesses that Mr. Buchanau will get in tho South one hundred and twenty electoral votes ; and that it is " only neccssary to give him the twenty-seven electoral votes of the honest old free State oi Pennsylvania, and he is the next President of the United States." We endeavored to show, a day or two ago,

that if Fremont was entitled to the vote of the North and the West for having been reduced to remarkable shifts on the Rocky Mountains, that he had equal claims on the South on ac count of the shirts to which ffl was reduced in Charleston. Instead of being grateful to us for our argument, the Rochester Democrat and the Utiea Herald have burst into toars ef offended delicacy at the mention of the word u shirts " We were wrong to offend the sweet sensitive creatures The next time we refer to the subject we shall refer solely to Monsieur Fr*ymocg'a chemists and robes de unit.?

Herbert, tb< perpetrator of that aot, designed as a precureo: of the publication of the speeoh of Mr. Pre* ton delivered cn tbe last trial of Herbeit moled in adranoe of the publioation of tba speech, so that tbe distant public might har< a reliable key to kit argument. While we shall nerer ce'a9e to believe tha the acquittal of Herbert was brought abou >y a prostitution of the law and justice, w< regard that as the work of individuals?not o the Democratic party, or tbe present Demo cratic national Administration; tbe Crimina Court of the District of Columbia being amen able not to the President, but to Coogrese only through impeaehment. We pronounce false tbe itatemeat of tb< aforesaid document intimating that tbe Secre tary of State-Mr Marcy?sought to ecreei the accusod, by lending his influence to pre vent Mr Dubois, the Netherlands Minister from testifying in the caae ; that gentleman i Government having expressly forbid him froa testifying under circumstances wherein h< would be compelled to submit himself to th< usual crocs-examination, the only system o giving testimony known to our laws, and Mr Dubois having asked permission of his Gov erument to testify in that way at the sugget tion and solicitation of Secretary Marcy. We have further to aver, that the Democratii party of this city are as united in condemna tion of those individuals to whoee imprupei conduct to that end the acquittal of the ac cused is attributed, as it is possible for mei to bo on such a subject.
