'as* fortnight of war and rtmon of war in that quarter : Extract from a letter of (rtu. P. F. iSnuth to th* Adjutant General of the ar myy dated " UEAPyrA*Tf!H8 Of THE W?8T, I "Fort Lewenworth, Aug 6, 1856 { ?? i wc uld not notice reports I see in the jrapcrs of committee? that have applied to me lor protection, and my refusal to grant it, and of other such things if I did not see that the object for which such reports are circulated are carrying oat by members of Congress in resolutions cf inquiry. The whole arc gross fabrications; there is no foundation for any of them. " The only applications made wero by in dividuals asking mo to send a force with them to recover property they alleged to have been illegally taken from them. I referred them to tho civil authority fur redress; but toid them if the civil authority found itself too weak to enforce its writs, assistance would bo lurnishei them. There have been two such applications by individuals, and one for an escort to accompany him to the judge of the I'nited States court of the Territory, (about three miles off;) but as he rodo by tho judge's door to come to me, I declined, as he evidently was not sincere in his application. " Tho troops havo not done any act since I have been here that looked tho least like any attemp:'to interfere with a citizen, except that cf guarding the prisoners charged with trea son, and in the custody of the marshal." o'/ f letter from Brevet Major General P.

Shannon, asking me to tako the field with the whole disposable forco in the Territory to prevent the ingress of " Lane's party" by the northern boundary of the Territory The in formation given to the governor has been so nn'i i3^ to my knowledge, so in ponrct. that I decline making a movement thai ,"*ould iBiroduco as much disorder as ex isted six weeks ago. Captain T. J. Wood, With his col."*pany of 1st cavalry, is upon the northern from 'cr? aQd 1 shall depend upon his reports to govern' aetion. Some of tho con.J*>*n'*3. along tho Kansas were sent by tho comm.^oding officer there, at the governor's request, to break up camps of nrmed men at several plac?- he designated. On the arrival of tho troops at thiJ points desig nated. not only were no camps found, hut nono had ever existed there, or anywhere else in their neighborhood I know that each party is trying to engage tho action of tho traops in expelling their adversaries, and 1 place no dependence on tho roports that do not cchqo from what ' oousider^on^ authority.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP The floa Thoraas B Florence ?Learning that tho Democratic Congressional Convention for the dittrict represented by this gentleman is scon to meet to make a nomination for the next Congross, we take the liberty of saying to them that if they purpose to 3udy the in terests of their constituency in selecting their candidate, they had better let well enough al-^rie. Mr. F., who is a very industrious man and devotes himself wholly to looking after fhe paiticular interests of his immediate con stituent: which are often under consideration In Congress and before the Exccutivo depart ments, is now thoroughly experienced iu tho best modes of carrying all points here which it i3 his duty to carry if he can It will take any ctiier gentleman, who might be elected to fill his place, years to ac quire the information concerning matters and things here necessary to enable him to take as good caro of bis constituent*' intorest as Mr. Florence does, lie is, besides, a great favorite with his fellow members, br cause he is a frank i . 1 generous Lc^rted gentleman in bis inter course with all, having earned the ill-will of | no one in Wash'ngton, in or out of Congress. We havo repeatedly known instances wherein vital interests have bun mined in Congress by displacing energctic, popular and expe riencod members to make room for others, who, of course, have to commenco to obtain their Congressional education on ousting such gentlemen as wo describe abovo While so doing their constituents are, of course, pay ing the piper, through the loss of propositions which their new representatives fail to work through Congress. The True Imuo -The Chariest,* Mtrrmry says, with forcc, of the present btate of affairs in Congross : " The President's message to the two Houses r f Congress, upon their s^embling at the ex tra session, is only an amplification of the tonio of his proclnniution. calling the session, lie exhibits tho great inconveniences in the rre3 Xhl Cw ,Cf !?? of ^ country in IveanlVf' "t .,c"InS the army without the h,vo?i*l and ftction "hen they are collision with the Indian ,hosr' argument* ?ee.? t i1 . ,r hor<,cr' There upen those to whom thVy wer'e ad\ ,iUlc.c?*.ct Senate adhered to the,fu!H'lrc!3<1 T.he tion bill.

What is the in ? terest of the few tbonsind United Stated troop', turned for the moment to shift for themselves, compared with the interest* of twentj-fivo millions of peoplo. whoso existence, as a con stitutional Confeder.itlen, depends "P?" tho preservation, by fast and strong rales, of tho limitations which can alone aavei them from the invasion of absolutism, or tho desolation of anarchy. We are not *orry to see the mad presistence of the House in the true develop ment and defence of tho principles of Black Republicani.-iu. Let tho Senate send the is .*uo befora tho country, and let tho countrv decide, once for all, whotber wo are expoctoil I to live under tho rule of a French Convention | or an American Congress " While wo endorse every word the Mercury says of tho character and tendency of tho ac tion of the Republican majority of one in the House, we aro not prepared to counsel the cessation of efforts to counteract the revolu tionary schemes of that majority, more espe cially while it remains apparent that if all friends of tho Constitution in its present emcr" gcncy who aro not paired off woro in their scats, as they should be, tho bill oould bo passed, ovor the partizan opposition of the Re volutionary party. It is the duty of tho anti-revolutionists of Congress bo leave no effort of theirs unessayed at any inconvenience to themselves, person ally, to pass tho bill without tho proposed rider. Otherwise, whenever abolitionism de sires to inako a new point against a featuro of the Constitution, a law, or a fundamental principle of the Government, thoy will resort to their present expedient of stopping the sup plies. It is far easior to check the success of such schemes ero one of them shall triumph, than after thoy shall havo found that they can thus force tho Senato and Hxcoutivo to bow to thoir will. Tho legislation of tho liou3e yesterday resulted in a practical prom iso that the Revolutionist party will beinglor iously worstod in their present congressional contest; and to abandon tho fl?ld to them at this timo, it ctrikes us, would bo not only im politic but seriously disastrous to tho causo of the preservation of the Union. Approaching a Hesult?When tho House adjourned yesterday the impression prevailed orounl tho hall that the appropriation bill would pass without a rider. This belief was the result of tho arrival in Washington of Messrs Harrison, of Ohio and Well* of Wis consin, both of whom are understood to bo op ponents of legislation for political effect in the enactment of bills appropriating the means of carrying on tho Government of the United Stats*. If all the friends of tho proposed po litical legislation in such connection, who, being pretcnt aro also "paired off," respect thoir obligations under such arrangements, wo do not see what is to prevent the passage of tho bill t>-day, as explained above; a? its sup porters should be in ono majority in tho hall, allowing its opponents tho vote of the Spoakcr Nevertheless, thoro are so many contingen cies that, happening, may affect tho result, as that we regard the issuo as being still quito uncertain, in view of the continued abscnco of Mossrs. Puryear, Read, Ready, Keitt, and one or two more friends of the bill without par ing off __ Discharged?Tho War Department has felt compelled to dischargo tho mechanics cm ployed in the Washington Arsenal, and, wo takoit for granted, at all tho United States ! armories and arsenals in tho country. The order to that cffcct was communicated to thoso in this city immediately intcrestod yesterday afternoon. The appropriations for their em ployment have been exhausted, and tho De portinent ha* no means at its command with which to pay them longer, and will have nono until the army appropriation bill shall become a law. This necessary stop will of courso pro duce much inconvenience, if not actual dis tress, in many worthy familior. It Is sincerely to be hoped that the Department's dilemma may be cured to-day by Congress. In Spring Held, Mas? , ther? are at least a thousand souls who rely upoa payments for such labor on Gov ernment account for their daily bread, while there aie also a large number of tradesmen outside mechanics, Ac , Ac., who will bo se iiously cramped in their business by the ne cessity which the House has imposed on tho Executive branch of the Government in this matter. The Hon-Paid Interest ?Our brief news by the arrival cf yesterday from California, tells of great excitement there over I'almer,' Cook A Co.'a failure to pay over the interest due on tho debt of the State and the city of San Francisco. Long sinca we explained that the plea of the agents of that house on this side, that they are no longer the agents to make the payment in question had no foun dation in truth; and further, that the money to pay the State's share of this missing inter est bad bc9n paid over to Palmer in person, and was by b^m carried from the State seat cf government down to San Francisco. We were as correct in that statemont as in the explana tion we gate at tho same time of the uso to wbioh that Houso aro said to have put the trust fund, vis: trending it in electioneering for Fremont. The Prospect-The Very Latent -When wo left tho Capitol at li p. m to-day, the protf .ot for the termination cf the called ses sion to-day had vanished. Tho revolutionists polled a heavier voto than beforo, and defeat ed the motion to rccede by four majority. Mr. Sabin who was absont without pair, hav ing returned to Washington. Wo trust, and now bolievr, that tho oppc nonts of the fcheme of revolutionizing tho Government of the United States will never leave their po^ts in the Capitol so long as their functions legally exi.t, without compassing tho defeat of the nefarious political plan of their opponents. . The Only Bemcdy -If the exiled session tCiininatM to-day without tho enactment of tho aimy appropriation bill, 'ho President will Lave the lower, wo premrnc, to call cut the mtlitia, to be employed where their ser vices may be nrressary for tho common do fencc.

The President announced the conforenco committee on tho part of the Senato as fol lows : Messrs Hunter. Crittenden, and Bigler. Mr. Clayton's joint resolution for the ap pointment of a joint committee of thirteen from the Houso and seven from the Senato to con sider and report on tho wholo subject of disa gresmcnt botwecn the two Houses upon the Army appropriation bill, was debated at great length by Messrs Benjamin, Seward, Dougl is and others, era they adjourned to meet at 11 a m to-day, in order to respond to tho purpose indicated by tho House of bring ing the called ee?sion to a closo to day, if pos siblo. In the House, Mr. ChaiToe asked leave to introduce an army appropriation bill providing merely for tho oxp?nses fur tho War Depart, mcnt projsr?aisonsls, armories, satvevs, ar mament and fortifications, without referonce to the army operations. Mr. Phelps and Mr. Giddings objected, and leave was not granted. Mr Wakeman's resolution offered yester day. to stop the pay of thosa members who re fused to vot?, or who had " p?;rcd off," was tabled Mr. Williams offotod a rosolation, which was adopted, provid ing for t he ad jou rn men t of Con - gress, the Senate concurring, on Thursday, at three o'clock. Mr Wheeler offered a resolution instructing tho Committjo of W ays and Means to report the bill which ho present! d, being essentially the same, with tho omission of tho Kansas pro viso. as that heretofore actcd on, for the ?up port of the army. The Ccmmittro to have leave to report at any timo Iho bill having been read in pait, Mr. Stanton raised a point of order that tho bill could not bo con. idered?two bills for the samo objcct having been already defoated. The Speaker overruled the point of order The vote was taken on seconding the de mand for the provious question Tho Speaker voted in tho negative, thU3 making a tie, in which c?30 the question was lost. Mr Waahburne, of Maine, saying that he intended to dobato the resolution, it went over Mr Valo then introduced tho same resolu tion; but it appearing that ho had borrowed it from tho clerk's de.^k, the Sfoakcr ruled it out of order. A inossago was received from tho Senate In forming tho House that it further insisted on its disagreement to the amendment of tho House to the Senate's amendment, (which lat ter strikes out the Kansas proviso,) and asking a committee of conference. On motion of Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, the House further insisted, and a committee of conference was appointed, consisting of Messrs Campbell of Ohio, Stephens and Sherman. The House adjourned until this morning at 10 o'clock, in order to finish up tho business of tho session PreesedtBf s of Te-Day. In the Senate, to-day, Mr. Hunter roportcd from the Conference Committee on tho dis agreeing votes of tLo two Houses upon tho army appropriation bill that they could not agree and also a recommendation to adhere Mr. H. addressed a few remarks to tho Sen ate in favor of that motion. Mr. Crittenden then took the floor and de livered a powerful sncech upon the state of things in Kansas and in Congress, and in fl!vor of adhering. Mr. C. also introduced a bill to alter and amend tho Kansas Nebraska act. which was laid on the table temporarily, and ordered to be printed. Mr Seward then addressed tho Senato in reply to Mr. Crittenden, and against the mo tion to adhere. In the Houso, the Conference Committee on the Army appropriation bill repoitcd that they could not agree.

POLITICAL ITEMS. Mr. M. R II Qarnctt accepts the nomina tion tendored him by tho Democratic party of tho Accomac Congressional District Hon. D. S. Dickinson addressed a mass meeting at Montrose, Pa , on the 18th inst.? Four thousand people were present, and tta greatest enthusiasm prevailed. The Newport (R. I ) News and the Bath /Me.) Tribune support only half of the Know Nothing ticket. They swallow Mr Fillmore very easily, but they cannot go Donolson. What's to be done 7 The Boston Courier oontaina a card signed by the Hon. Edward Everett, Hon. Wm. Ap pleton, Hon. R C. Winthrop, and a large num ber of other Whigs of city, expressing them selves in favor of the election of Mr Fillmore to tho Presidency. The Democrats of Maryland will hare a poll-raising in honor of Buchanan and Breck inridge at Thompson's store, in Montgomery county, on Saturday next, at one o'clock ? Speeches from several eminent Democrat* may be expected. Ex Gov. Reeder addressed a large meeting at tho Tabernacle, in New York city, on Tues day evening, to raiae funds for Kansas. He ?atd he wanted 5,000 men and $200 a piece to pay them with, to say nothing of rifles for them to shont with. After hia address, over 52 000 were subscribed. Mr. Gorrit Smith has been writing a letter declining to withdraw his name as a candidate for the Presidency, in which ho claim." that although soino few radical abo'itionista may cast their votes for him, "no other equal num

ber of persons are doing more than they to swell the flood of anti slavery feeling on which alone Col. Frcmcnt can bo carried into tho Prcaidcncy." Sufficient returns have been received from Texas to show that the Democratic nominees for Comptroller, Treasurer and Attorney Gen eral, on the State ticket, have boenelocted by large majorities Chief Justice Hemphill had no opposition, and Judges Wheeler and Lips comb, for Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, aro far ahead of General Jennings. At tho reccnt American mass meeting in Liwrenco, Mass., says tho Boston Bee, the resolution endorsing Fillmore was roconsid orcd and indefinitely postponed, by a vote of jjsttwoto one. The wholo strength of the Fillmoro forces was present, and the result may bo considorcd a fair expression of tho American party in Lawrcnco. The Democrats of Maine had a largo gather ing in Belfast on Saturday, 23d. Eloquent speeches upon general politics were made at tho court-house by Hon. E K Smart, and at Poirce's Hall by Hon Nathan ClifTord, Hon. Henry Ingnlls, and Hon J. W. Bradbury. Measra. Farley, Baboon, Ayor, and other dis tinguished gontlemen were on the stand. Tho Boston Atlas of Saturday say? : " Af fairs have assumed such an appearance >n Massachusetts, that unles? wo havo at once a union of all Fremont men, " it is very />?* si hie that th* Ftat* may civ hrr electoral vote f or Jmnes Buchanan." * * * ' We s.iy plainly, that up to this time, there has been no union of the Freuwnt forces in Mas sachusetts ; that there has been only folly, wrangling and distention , that wo have lost all power of exercising any influenco upon our sister States." The Milford Beacon, an old established newspaper published in tho town of Milford, Kent county, Del , heretofore neutral in pc litical affairs, is out for Buchanan and Breck inridge, and tho whole Democratic party The editor feels that whilo tho neutral and Know Nothing papers of the North are all coming out for the abolition candidate, it bravely be comes the duty of all true national men to unite on Buchanan for the sake of the Union and the preservation of our Republican insti tutions. Bigelow, in hi* Fremont romance, says : "His eyes (Fremont's) are blue and very large, his nose aquiline, his forehead, over which his brown curling hair ia parted at the centre, is high and capacious " Ho neither smokes nor chows, and seldom "takes a drop " He waa so pious when a boy that he used to fatigue people by reciting Bi ble verses to them, aod all his folks thought he would certainly be a minister. He never attempted to fight a duel except in defence of s >mcbody he lovod better than he did himself, and uses no naughty words. He is kind to Jossio and hor children, and goes to tho Epis copal church. Who can deny that these char acteristics qualify John C Fremont for the office of chief magistrate of the United States of North America.
