SPULIT OF THE KOSKIRQ PRZ8S. The Union, in its leader beaded " KAniaa and the Conspiracy," invites the attention of it* realerstothe efficial documents in relation to Kama*, tublisbed in its last issue,aspre senting the po*?ey ?f the administration fully in regard to t hut Territory. It says : " We cail upon the American people every where, but particularly upon our brethren of the North, to say whether the policy of our government, which we now present officially lor their consideration, does not command their unqualified approbation? Has it not leen milked by caution, moderation, and wiidoB ? Could the President have done less, under the extraordinary events which were transpiring, than to issue the proclama tion ? Is it not conceived in the right spirit? Does it not express the proper conlidence in the patriotism of his fellow-citizens ' Does he not put himself where he ought to stand? by the laws and by the Constitution of the t'nion 7 Are not the evil doers who were and ttDl are meditating treason, somo with artns, aiid some with money in their hands, fully, justly, firmly, but mercifully warned? Has he not appealed properly and earnestly to the go d as well as admonished the evil men of the land? We challenge the rnoet searching scrutiny to point out any other course ho sbt uld have adopted, or any wiser mode of accompiiahing it.

Tho ivtrth<?rvr**% in noticing the official (Katfas) documents, says they 14 serve to con firm, with bufheient clearness, the melancholy fact, before dependent on rumor, that the dis orders which have so long prevailed in Kan sas stem to have lately assumed a still mi>re menacing ;ispe<*t, nml call, in the ju?lyment ot the President, for extra^rdimry and energetic measures of repression on the part of tho Gen eral Government. "As it is now impossible to h^pe for any paeifieatkn of Kansas by legislative enact ments. Centres# having unhappily aojourned without a Jopting any scheme fjrthat purpose, though its utility and necessity seemed to be admitted on all sides, the responsibility of preserving the public peace is reposed entirely in the bauds ot the Executive, who it is m< st earnestly to be hoped by every citisen will so temper triune s of action with discre tion of counsel a* to restore tranquillity ar.d maintain the supremacy of justice in that un fortunate Territory."

I am writing at a window of the Waverley House, from which the Blue Ridge is visible for msny miles of its length, forming a charm, iog back ground for the expanse of cultivated fields that lay on the gradual j sloping plateau between. This Waverley House, situated im? mediately at the Orange and Alexandria rail road depot at this point, is a recent creation of the necessities of travel by rail, though it i8 I beginning to be extensivoly patronised by health and pleasure-feekers from lower Vir. gir??, who prefer its substantial comfort and *> exquisite old-fashioned Virginia tablelknd the entiro absence of straining after effect on the part of its guests, to the crowd?, bustle, ' fashion, Jemi-starvation, loose manners and j Worse morals in these days almost inseparable ; from life at fashionable watering places.

Carolina Times. WASHINGTON NEWS AND G08SIP. A Betro?pect?The recurrence of Septem ber bring! to oar mind the prevalence a fearful acourge in a neighboring State, for, is thai month, a brief year ago, the yellow fere* attained its height. There had been fbtty three deaths in all, in Portsmouth, Virginia, and its neighborhood, on the third of Aagust, and twenty others' died in the threo following days ; but, on the second of September?the Sabbath day?thirty-two persons, one in a hundred of the population, ceased to lire. The mortality for the week commencing at that paitioular period, attained 4b* fearful number of at least one hundred and fifty, equal to five per cent, of the human beings in the town at that time And this fact is shown by the painfully interesting report of tho Port" mouth Relief Association ; for a copy of whieh we are indebted to the kindness of Geo. W. McLean, Esq ,of the Portsmouth Transcript. This volume comprise! a list of the victims to the fever, and as a history is valuable, while it reminds us of the death, by the horri ble disease, of friends whom we so fondly cherished?of persons of all ages and condi tions?leaving a long train of mournful recol lections, associated with orphanage and tho desolation of many a dwelling i it will be recollocted that the number of deaths had become so great that " it was with much difficulty that the most common offices of sepulturo could be performed Apparently very littlo feeling, and less ceremony, was ex hibited in the burial of the dead. There seemed to ba an over-anxiety to get rid o.* the hapless victims as speedily as possible. When a" hope of recovery was gono, anl death was inevitable, its approach was looked for with manifest impatience. Even before the poor sufferer bad breathed his I last, bis coffin was engaged, and other ar rangements made for his speedy interment; nn l ere his limbs had asjumed tho rigidity of death, and within an hour or two after tha dissolution, his body, without shroud or wind ing-sheet, was placcd in a common stained I coffin, deposited in the hearse under tho sole I charge of the negro driver, and hurried off to tho cemetery, accompanied, save in a very few instances, by neither friend ner relative, t) see the last scd rites performed, ere he wa-J shut out from their sight for ever. Nor were there any religious rites over his grave." All business, save that which the work of death prompted, was suspended ; and over the scene I bung a deep gloom, appalling the ft..ute?t heart, as all alike were exposed to the influ oncfl of the impatient pestilence. I But we would not essay to recapitulate the I prominent features of that time of trial and distress They are sufficiently familiar to the public. Painful as aie che recollections of the past, it is a matter for eincorc congratulation J that those localities have not been revisited I by the scourge. Now, commerce, and arts, I and manufactures, and every manual oocupa- I tion, are in the ,c full tido" of prosperity, and I all the blessings consequent upon this coudi- I tion of affairs enjoyed, affording a striking and bright contrast to the sad occurrences ot the past, and prompting every thankful heart to gratitude and praise for the present exemp tion fr^in such calamities as those which, a year ago, vifi'ed tho Old Dominion. ! The Maino Election ?Much interest is nat- j urnlly felt in the result of the Maiue (State) I election, which takes place today. A GjV-I ernor, six representatives in Congress, and I members of the Legislature are to be chosen. I The candidates for Congress are as follows : List. Democrats. Republican. l..Josiah S. Little.

Tho Fremont party hat. re- I sorted to every appliance of promises, coax- I ing, threats, and bribery to carry the State to-day, in order to influence tho Presidential I election. It is stated that at least $60,000 I havo been spent within the last fortnight to I carry Maino for tho renegade Hamlin, and I every township and school district has been I stumped by striped and ring-streaked " lie- I publican ' baranguers, ar.d frowsy-boarded I Kansas and Freedom shriekers. Should the I Democrats uchievca victory against such odds J they will havo fought a good fight indeed. A Miserable Instrument ?Can't Hilbus, I or Dennis, or some of our expert professional I tuners take tho Organ in hand and screw the I ricketty old machine up to something near con- I ccrt pitch? The wretched squad of "grind- I era" who labor at the crank, depressed and I out of temper through the political and pecu- I niary ruin I<k ning upon them, seem to have I lost all heart for tinkering up the miserable I old barrel. Yet they grind away, to the dis- I comfitment of their handful of readers, at the I most lugubrious tunes. Its last and most pitiful wall Is elicited by the fact that while tho Know Nothing party I i* tumbling to pieces in all directions, the | Democracy present) an united and undimin- I ished front to the enemy. The equilibrium of I the (irsran is especially upset by the announce- I luent in tho newspapers of tho day that John I Van Duron was one of the speakers at tho I immense Democratic meeting in Chicago ilas'nt the Organ man read that? 44 AViiile the lamp holds out to burn, The vilest sinner may return " I We expcct to soe the Organ man himself I come creeping penitontly back to the Demo- I cratio fold some of these line mornings | The White Feathor!?The New York Her-1 old continues to "drub" the " Republicans" I of the lIou$e of Representatives, saying, with reference to the army bill: " After a week's bombardment they showed tho white feather, sounded a parley, and sur reudored ignouiiuiously. Aud this is what I sotne republican journals give them credit for. Why, instead of being welcomed back ss sol diers who had nobly discharged their duty, they ought to bo court martialled and drummed out of Congress. We hope that will be their reward." The fact is, some ftwof the " Republicans," so called, became ashamed of their conduct, and were glad when tfce army bill passed, satisfying themselves with " the reeord" of their votes in favor of the Kansas restrictive proviso. Like a defeated candidate for office, they did not happen, with all their gasoonade* to have votes enough to secure their end, if, indeed, they hooeetly desired its consumma tion.
