Tbe Inttlligenrrr modestly waives ito claiui to the paternity of the idea of settling the difficulty between the two Houses ever tbe army appropriation bill by the assumption ol j the power, on tho part of Congress, to deter mine which laws cf the Kansas Legislature are constitutional, and which are not; and publishes i me columns of extracts to show that bloodshed is the oider of the day >Q Territory. The Union argues that Lane s present raid upon Kansas, at tho head of his army of rag muffins, irai final -o as to be in precise con ceit with the curretl rail of his friends in Congress on the Conization aud the Govern ment. - m m m WASHINGTON HEWS AND GOSSIP. Doctor*, &c.?The Avenue wa< last evening rife with panaceas to cure the dilemma of Congress over the army appropriation bill Some twenty or thirty gebt'emcn had each his sovereign specific. We confess that we could discover little virtue in either of thoso coming under our notioe; all of them, as far as we ecu Id perceive, propojing to sacrifice some important principle, in these times when prin ciples are held so cheap. The Iatelhgnnrfr't scheme of ropealir.g cer tain laws of the Territorial Legislature of Kan?a?, was urged for the most part by those with whom we conversed on the subject who held t> tbe correctness of tho course boing pur eed by tbe Republican majority of one in tho Uousu We do not far see the propriety cf its adoption. Th ugh we have never be lieved in what is termed " squatter cover, eignty" as a constitutional right, in common with nearly all other States rights men of the South we have cheerfully acquiesced in the plan of giving the people of tbe Territory of Kansas the privilege of making any laws for their own government they fancied, so long they may not trench in bo doing upon the con stitutional riglts of others. We accepted that feature of the Kansas-Nebraska act as a com promise, and have since seen no reason to re gret that our political friends acquiesccd grace fully in it We confess, ht wever, to never-dying jeal ousy of Crr.gresaional usurpations of the func tions (f tho judiciary ai.d executive branches of the Government, which are boing essayed with mere's year by year, and are thus silently Ouiiteiatii g the old land mark<< <jf the Constitution, oil tbe preservation of which we sincerely believe ti e continuance of our pres ent Gcverrment depends, in tbe main. .However ea?y it might be for those who With us deny tbe abstract sovereignty of the people of an United States Territory under tho letter of the Constitution, to aJmit tho right of Congre-s to legislate for them, (the Kazi'as and Neb.a^ka ait hiring out of the way.) it strikes us t'ua it will be rather strange to find per sons wio stand by the principle of " squatter sovereignty" j>r r st voting for any thing amounting to legislation by Congress ou the domestic concerns of the people cf Kansas. Tbe plea of the unconstitutionality of acts of the Kansas Legislature is not available in this case ; because that question is cne to be de cided under the principle of this Government, only by the judiciary. We shall greatly re gret to see any action in the premises based on the theory that Congress has legal authority to decide the question of the constitutionality of aoy law. as being an usurpation hardly second in its evil ccn-equence? as a precedoat, to the new idea that, under tbe pretense of earning out the popular will, a majority of one may coerce three fourths of the Senate of the Uni ted States into unconstitutional and repag nant political legislation in connection with a general appropriation bill, by holding over them tbe alternative of otherwise submitting to have the wheels of the Government stopped for want of supplies. In everything so far propo-ed, ex'Cpt the enactment of tho naked appropriation bill in the uma! way, we can perceive no esicntial remedy. That is, nothing thai fails to embrace a surrender of vital principle to revolutionary designs, which are us repugnant to us when es-ayed under the smooth cover of Congres sional enactments, as though Attempted to be forced down cur throat at the bayonet's point The Late James Keacham ? We were with out space, yesterday, in which to refer at any length to the dispensation of Providence, which has taken tbe lion. Mr. Meacham, of Vermont, from his family and tbo public ser vice, wherein he was of so great utility. It was our fortune to know him in'imately for years pa*t, ar.d we can aver that we never knew a purer or m< re conscientious man in public life lie was as gentle and eimple heartei as a child, and never spoke ill of any '?no. Few men cf as extensive general at tainments as he possessed have been in the House of Representatives of the United States lii the last ten years, and few, indeed, cf his compeers have so entirely eschewed self iu all that the ? have done in the discharge of the representativo's multifarious duties The brief eulogy delivered yesterday by iir Etheridge upon the deceased touched our heart, because we felt, as few here could fesl, from our pest association with him, the justice, truth and f ree of hia eloquent daguerreotype ci the character of the^living man. The Very Laat Propoeition?The follow ing is a copy of a bill introduced into the Senate ycs.crday, which, the reader will per ceive, is iu exact keeping with the suggestion ci tDe National Intei/tgtncer a? the proper mode of fettling the difficulty between the two Houses of Congress relative to the army appropriation bill: BILL atrcpatlrg regain !?wi e.iarted by the L> Kt?la'. v? Assembly of the Territory cf Kaa mat /;, it macud, Arc . That inasmuch a> the Constitution of the United States aud the or ganic act of said Territory has secured to the inhabitants thereof certaiu inalienable rights, of which they connot be deprived by any le gislative enactment, therefore no relii(ious t?*t hball ever be required as a qualification to any office < r public iruet; no law shall be in force or enforced in said Territory respecting an rit.it..*Lui(iit of religion, or prohibiting tbe exercise ther?-> f ; or abridging the freedom of i-peerh, or of the press ; or of the right of the peoj-ic peaoaabiy to assemble ?-nd petition for ti e roUress of grievances ; tho right of the p*?>ple to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects againat unreasonable search's ?nd seizures shall not be violated; ar.d >i >v rr.i ?t thai! issue but upon prohaMe cause, by oath or affirmation, and particu larly deeenbing the place to be aearohad, and the persons or things to ho seised ; nor shall the rights of the people t<> keep and bear arms be infringed. No person shall be ne to answer for a capital or otherwise crime. unless on a presentment or in .c l^ i of a grand jury ; no? shall wy P?"on be sub ject for the same offence to bo *w.l.ctM " m jeopardy of life or limb; nor ^all bc c m^ pilled in any criminal case to be' a ?ll *,? against himself, nor be deprived of life lib erty, or pr-perty, without due process of law, nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation. In all crim inal prosecution, the accusod shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an im partial jury of the district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of tho nature and cause of the aocusation ; to be confronted with the wit nesses against him ; to hare compulsory pro cess of obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to bavo tho assistance of counsel in his dcfence. The privilege of habeas oorpua shall not be suspended unless when, in case of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it In suits at common law, where the value iu con troversy shall cxceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact by jury shall be otherwise re-examined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law. Excc^sive bail shall not be required, nor excessive lines imposed, nor cruel und unusual punishmonts inflicted. Tho Crisis.?The different lines of tele graphic communication to imd from this city are playing a new part in Congressional legis lation. The merit, both ?>f the discovery and its application, belongs to the Republicans During the pendency of tho Nebraska bill tho invention whs put into partial operation, tut to nutting like the extent to which it is now being carried. Tho modus operandi is sub stantially this, vis : A Republican member of Congress from Massachusetts for instance, or from Pennaylvania, is found to give symptoms of weakness In tlte present revolutionary crisis. The fact is communicated to the Re publican leaders that Mr. A B, or Mr. C D, will recede from the proviso now upon the Army bill unless n:me influence is brought to bear which shall give the virulcnce of his partisanship new strength- Thereupon tele graphic messages aro sent to some of tho prominent Republican leaders in his dis trict who understand the plot, urging them to get up public demonstrations, to man ufacture public sentiment to operate upon Mr. A. ii. or Mr. C. D., anl transmit them to him forthwith by tho telegraph. Ou the next morning, or later, Mr. A. B., or Mr C. 1) , as the case may be, is in the receipt of tele graphio dispatches, letters by mnil, resolu tions p&ssed at bogus public meetings, <fcc., all telling him to stand ?nn?to held on to tho proviso. Thus the weak-minded and deluded member is Etiflened up to the requirements of another day of faction, and treason, it is hu miliating to observe how many men in Con gress aro thus ensnared by designing met? and thus reduced from the paths cf rigi.t and duly into tne dark, damp alley-ways of sedi tion and revolution. It is alarming to know that so many men are thus being led blindly on to a forfeiture of their constitutional en gagements. The present contest now carried on by the Republicans in the House of Representatives is reprehensible in any, even the mildest as pect iu which it can be considered ; fir if it is tot the incipient step of revolution, of dig" uuion and civil war, it i?, in the language o* President Pierce, 41 mero angry, idle, aimless disturbance cf the public peace and tran quility." At the time wo write, no one can tell what will be the resu.it cf the existing state of tnings. Wo hope for the best. Wo rely yet upon th* wisdom <d Congress; or. if that fails us, we look with ubidirg cunfider.ce to the patriotism and tho calm resolution of the Pres ident, wuich were jieVer more conspicuous than now, to bring out of darkness the rain bow of promise. Should Congress adjourn without providing fur tho common defen-o, and affording that protection which every govern ment o^res to its people, and for which our itandirg army wns org*aiaod, a responsibility will be devolved upen Frel ident Pierije thin which none greater has retted on any Prcai dent of the Republic sinco the days of Wash ington. We believe that the responsibility when it comc3 will be met and discharged in the spirit cf a patriot, and with tho steady wisdom < f a statesman. Tho Pair ?We leara fr^m Mr. Greenwood that in recently pairing him rff with simo other member in case he (Mr. B ) dcJrei to vote of late, Mr Bennett, of New York car ried out tho understanding existing between them, ere Mr. U . left Washington tome d ijs ago. We learn, furtlier, that Mr. Bennett, un selecting Mr. Meacbam as a pair for Mr. Greenwo<jd, was nnder tho impxession that his health wis uot worse than it had beon for some months past, nnd that ho would sooa again be at his post here, which we know to havo been the impression provalenl among the late Mr. M.'s immediate personal friends here These facts entirely exonerate Mr. Bennett, we are happy to say, from uny suspicion of failing scrupulously to regard hii late obliga tion to Mr. Oroenw'?od in the matter of pair ing off with him. A Misapprehension.?A '.Vied suggested to us that some persons might translate a late paragraph in the Star explaining the bill re cently introduced by Mc. Bennett, of Miss , (to postpone the operation of the compensation act until tho beginning cf the next Congresr) into an intimation that it wcj designed to grant mileage for the present called scs-icn. We took occasion in that paragraph to cllude to the fiict th-t the uxiatenco of still auother law or rule, by to moans designed to be touched by Mr Bennett's biD, made the granting of mileage at the present (called) session im{0? sible, instancing the fact a* a substantial rea son why Mr. B. weuld probably find it impos sible to compass tho eca^tme nt of his measure, which has lor its object the purpose enly of preventing any one from receiving, during the piescnt C ji gress, the benr fitof increased com pensation legislated while this Congre35 < x'utf. A Fares.?The reading of the jeport of Mr. Simmons, of New York, in the oase of the fia?as between Meiers. McMu'.lin and Granger, kept the Houfo in a nar. It in ef fect jnstiflei Mr. MoMullin in giving Mr. Granger a black eye, ini thus substantiates our original account of the affair. The report closes with a recommendation to the House to dismiss the subject. A minority report was made by Mr. ^mitb, of Va. Appointed.?The Secretary of the Trea<u y has rppointed superintendents of cons'ruetioi as follows : Of the marine htspiui ?t Dttrivt' Mio i., A. H. Jordan, vice Wm. Barclay, re nrvd.

In the Senate, yesterday, after we went to press, a message was received from the Honsc announcing tho death of the lato Hon James Moacham, ofVormont, and after Messrs. Foot And DongTas pronounce! appropriate eulogies upon the deceased, and the resolutions of con dolence usual upon such occasions, were passed, they adjourned over until this morn ing. Preceetlli'gs of T?*DtT> In tho Senate, to-day, the bill introduced yesterday, to repoal certain laws of the Ter ritorial Legislature of Kansas, was debated by Messrs Weller and Bayard for its enact ment, and Messrs Mason, Butler, and Brown agaimt it, with a few remarks fr.-tn Mr. Cass contending that Congress has the right to cor rcct improper territorial legislation. In tho House, Mr..Simmons presented a majority report from the select committee rn the recent fracas between Messrs. McMullin and Granger; and Mr. Smith, of Virginia, presented a minority report from the same committee, which having been read for in formation, together with the resolutions ac companying them, both of which rccommonded th-5 Hou?e to discus3 the subject. Mr Cawpbcll, of Ohio, moved to adjourn. Not agreed to. Mr. Letchor moved the printing of ten thou sand extra copies of tho above described re ports; referred to the Printing Committee. * Mr. Harris of Md., m< ved to take up the private bills not finally disposed of at the last session Objection mado ai d ruled out of order. The regular o; Jer of business being insisted on. ar.d a few resolutions were ineffectually introduced? Mr. 0 >bb, of Ga., then moved to adjourn. Mr. Washburn, of 111 , moved to adjourn until Friday next; not agreed to The question was being put on the motion to adjourn until to-morrow by yeus and nays as the Star went to press. GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE Georgetown, August 27, 185ft Oar city continues unusually quiet. There is nothing floating in the political or commer cial atmosphere worthy of public n'tice The unusually cool weather (for August) induces many to anticipate an eaily fall, and has set our merchants generally to work preparing for its trade. Our wculd be politicians have bacome unusually quiet, and everything is again inovirg uu in very commendable man ner. We have been requested to say that the con tract for furnishing the poor of our city with wood w^s awarded to Mr. L Williams at S5 25 Instead of $5 45. We bear many complaints among the mem bers of some of our churches about the disor derly conduot of a fow young mon, who are in tto habit of vLiting them o:i Sunday nights, seemingly for no other purpose than to aunoy the preacher and congregation. At the Meth odist. church, ou Suuday i.ight latt, several (all of whom ere kn< wi?; beh ivd in ?uch an tuirageous manner that it was with s mo dif fi.ulty tho uiiuister could get alorg with his discourse The colored folks?members of Mount Zion Methodist Church?had a fino time of it at tbeir dinner in the woods of Mr Lyons yes tcrday. The company was v? ry l<rge, aud the most commendabio quiet and good order prevailed the entire afternoon. The tables were handsomely spread, and well filled with almost every dcdicecy calculated to satisfy a hui'gry soul Ti'C proceeds go to th*s benefit of their house of worship, which is now under going a thorough renovation and remodeling. We would ..dviae those who have occasion to lecve tl eir premises early in tho morning, to lock the doors before leaving. This morning about lieht, Mr John Paxton got up to go to market, but havinglrequently, as he tuppo;eu. missed butter, &o., out of his cellar, ccucluded to watch his premises awhile beforo leaving. Very soon he discovered a girl (white) enter t'-je house, ai.d soon after come out with some six or eight poui.ds rf butter Mr. P jiursued and caught the y< ung thief, and obtained his butter. Upoa questioning her she admitted that she had been in tho habit of robbing his premises of such articles every other day, and that she had been sent to do so by her father. We have been requested, by some of the fru<t and vegetable dealer* in our maikot to ca:l th? attention of tho clcrk of the market to the very diminutive siza of Rome of the measures now in u.-e.
