EVENING STAR. WAS H I A O T O N C IT Y: FRI DAY lDi ISA?. jr^ AdTertiwu>??t? should be buM la k> 11 o'clock, n>., otherwise tbey may not appear aitll the next day. SPIRIT OF THX MORHIHG PEXSI. The Union, discoursing upon the Main* election, says * '? Maine has spoken contrary to the hopes, but not contrary to the expectations, of the democrats; and been use she has so spoken, black republicanism conceives that tbe presi dential c? nt?--t i? virtually decided? that there is now nothing left for the (ireeleys, the Garrison#, ti e Be? chtrs. and the W ilacns to do bnt t<> esc rt their chief in triumph to the federal capital . , ' This is the 6r,t presidential campaign of j the black ?e? ul.lJ ar-. for their gueiil.a fights of 1844 lMi?. and 1S5* are unworthy of a passing notice Like most yonrg soldiers, they have mistaken a >kirmish for a general tDgagemcut. ard have shown their weakness in their tumultuous joy over tke simple fact that the trifling aid promised by Iowa, Ver mont, and Maine has not been withheld All pitched battles aie preceded by sharp skir mishes. the result of which has little or no in fluence over tho fortunes of either of the con tending armies. It is true that three ef our weakest outposts have fallen before superior numbers; but their brave defenders, after a gallant and even desperate fight, have retired :n good order, and with undiminished ardor, to the main body. That main body, upon whom and with whom now rest the bo|>es of every true patriot, have not changed front or lost one inch of ground. Tho post of honor, as the post of danger, has been assigned to Pennsylvania, with her twenty-seven elec toral votes. And there, too, in the van. we find Illinois and Indiana, California and New Jersey, New Hampshire and Connecticut. The democrats of New Tork, Ohio, and Miob Jgan are hastening to the field ; but, if they should be prevented from taking part in tba fortunes of the day, the reserved corps, with its one hundred and twenty votes, will cbargo the black republicans as the famous Old Ouard of Napoleon charged the Prussians at Jena?converting a complete victory into an ignominious flight " 1 be Un ton's private ail vices fr m Pennsjl vania continue to be tf the most encouragicg character. Counties and districts which have been regarded for some time as doubtful, and apon which the republicans rely as their only chance cf success, have given unmistakable Bjmptoms of the presence of a ju.weiful re actionary spirit, 1'nder the head of " An Atrocivus slander Refuted," the Union bays that? '*To produce the impression that there ex ists sotre disaffection at the South, the black republicans hare placed tho names of thirteen citizens of Virginia upon the electoral ticket This ha? be~n dote withe ut tbe knowledge or permission of these gentlemen, who are all men cf established character ar.d knewn fidel ity to the South and its interests." The Union asks ar.d autLcrizcs every lover of tiuth and ciino.en honesty to meet this in sidious and wicked outrage upou private char acter and public history with its emphatic and indignant denial. Ihe Intt/ltgtnrer is devoted to new? and to interesting foreign correspondence. Fortt-Secckd Anniversary ok tue Bat TLXgor North Point.?To-day is the forty aeccni anniversary cf the b..tle of North Point, a day in tae histoiy of the country which will always be remembered and com mem re ted, being one of th re it-dissoluble and invisible ties that cementc the Union of the fctates. The Baltimore American, while freaking ofjthis ?ubject says : % " Ibero are sull many in our midst who recollect that eventful day, and they call up the scene* with emotions of pleasure. On the day preceding, with their ships monacing the then small city, but tho most important in th* State, the thunder of tbe ordnance of tho Invading force was let loose upon Port McIIen ry, but that gallant poet luaintaned its posi tion, and on the following day tbe forces of tho enemy landed at North Point with a view to reach the city by land. Y\ ith a superior force they landed, and when their General with his picket guard undertook to reconnoitre the ground tbere were two brave spirits near to watch and check thecarnage that bad been promised upon the people of Baltimore. H. Wells and II. (J.McComas were on the aleit, and with a steady aim their unerring rifles slew the commander, though their own lives paid the pennlty of their love of country Their names are still embalmed iu the memory of the people of Baltimore, and will ever re main eo, as their heroi-in threw confuson in'o th? ranks of the enemy, enabling our miiitia to drive iff the legion* of invaders Theie are those who recollect with what emotions cf pain they awaited the result of the struggle of that day. and many bear's were made glad by the safe return if sons and husbands, while others wee called to mourn tbe loss of those who laid elt wn their lives on their coun try's altar" PEKSGNA L ? ?..

L The present volume, being the iixth of the entire series, contains the Opinions of Mr. Attorney General Cushing from March 4th, 1853, to October 7th, 1854, a period of about ?eventeen montb?. We need not say that the reputation of Mr. Cuihirg as a profound jurist has been fully sustained by this the first in ttalment of his labors now given to the public. The learning atd^research of these Opinions^ together with the vigor, comprehensivenesa and scholarly accuracy of language with which the most recondite principles of law are enun ciated, are not more maivellous than tho as tonishing amount of labor evinced in their preparation. Mr. Cushing, it is well known, is one of the mott industrious of our public men, although but few know how much he has really aceomplbhed. In addition to his duties as an important member of tho Presi dent's advisory council, and his dutios always onerous as representing the I nited States be fore the Supreme Court, he has prepared the Opinions, many of tbcm exceedingly elabo rate, involving principles of constitutional, in' ternational, municipal, military and adminis trative law, contained in the volume now just published. To give an idea of Mr. C 's industry, to say nothing of high talents and acquirements, i' is only necessary to mention one or two f?ctd. Mr. Wirt, it is known, held the office of At torney General during the entire term9 of both Presidents Monroe and John Quincy Adams, a period of twelve years, yet the number <f jages occupied ly his opinion8* given during this whole tituo is only 725, whereas Air. C.'s Opinions tor seventeen months fill 7f.O pages. It is true, th:tt the business ^f tho (lo\erLment has very largely increased since Air. Wirt's day, and numer ous complex Cjuestior h have arisen under its administration which then had not occurred^ but to come down to the more recent period o (?en. Taylor's and Mr. Fillmore s administra te ns, it will Le found that Mr. C. has already accomplished more than Mr. Johnson and Mr. Crittenden together. We mean no dis paragement to any of the gentlemen nauied> but dimply mention tho fact to show the vas amount of Air. C "s labors. We understund that the materials for a sec* oad v.lume of the Opinions of this distin. guished gentleman have accumulated, and will be published toon after the expiration of the present Administration. While the mat ter is eo abundant, the substance is no less so. A mere glance at the index will show the important character of the subjects dis:ussed. Among these Opinions the fallowing have s-ruck us as pre-eminently able: "Jurisdic tion of Federal and State Court* " Analy sis of Judicial Sjsteiu of the United States ??Office and Duties of Attorney Gcn?ral;" " Purchase of Belligerent Ship8 by Neutrals " Reciprocity Treaty with England," the va" ri'ju? Opinions on courts martial, (military and naval.) and also these upon the extradition of fugitives from justice nnd from service. Of the latter class we might specify the elabor ately discussed Opinion in wh?ch it is held that the right if a master to reclaim a fugi tive from service extends not only to the States and organized Territories, but also to all the unorgan'ted territorial possessions of tho United States Wo cannot doubt that this volume will find a ready sale to the legal pro fession Military Superintendence?Mr Ball s Spe cial Committee?The following communica tion, clipped somo time since from the New York AVt/'ji, but crowded out hitherto by tho pressure upon our columns, will be found of interest even at this late date as written by one evidently fully conversant with the sub" ject: Washington, August 12, lbotf. The appropriation bills are making fair headway, and would undoubtedly have passed long since were it not for the factious disposi tion manifested by tho Black Republicans to weigh them down with irrelevant and absurd amendments Prominent among these Is tbat of Air Ball < f Ohio, to the effect that it shall not be lawful, after the 15th day of Novem ber, Itt5i?, for any < fficer in commission in the military service of the I nited States to have charge of or to be employed as asristant, su perintendent, or architect in the construction of buildings for custom houses, marine hos pitals. mints, post offices, court houses, rupitol extension, or other public buildings, except sui'h as pertain to tho military defences of the I ii.ted Mates; and that from and after the said date the general supervision of the con struction of the Capitol and Post Offi *e exten sions shall be transferred fr< rn the Secretary of War to the Secretary of the Interior. Now, it is a well-known fact which no man of ordinary judgment will dispute, that tho engineer officers of the nrmy are, from th* very nnture of their profe-non, peculiar)* fitted for the- supervision of the immense pub lic improvements now b? itig made by thetlov errment; and it is a fact equally notorious that since Captains Bowman and Meigs hsve been detailed to supervise the erection and extension of the public buildings, animmen-e amount of money has been retained in the Treasury which would, under the old contract system have been squandered in eurichmg those irresponsible contractors who are now backing Mr Ball in his efforts to effect its rest'.rntion. Yet that gentleman, not content with cau'inj an investigation which has been not only couiicd, but demanded, by gentle men immediately concerned, has thought proper, in his superior wisdom, to move for the re-establishm**nt of that Galpbin and Gar diner school which consigned the administra tion of Mr FHlmor? to everlasting disgrace, c.nd which would a>;ain open the door to Mr. B '8 peculiar friends, and enable tkem to fleece the Treasury of millions annually. It is to be h< ped that the Senate will treat this attempt to rob the Treasury ot its safeguards with that confideration which all kindred propositions, arising from mere party motives, deservo. In these times of political finan ciering, when reckiet* fanaticism and un scrupulous oiemagogues rule the popnla* branch of the National Legislature, it is well for the people tbat they can repose confidence in the calm wisdom of the Senate, which in variably rebukes and checks the wild and in considerate legislation of the House *f Repre sentatives. The special committee appointed by the House under the resolution of Mr. Ball, have already made considerable nrogress in its in vestigations, ?n?l enough is \r\omn to render it cartain that his charg?5? are entirely un founded?not a par tic of evidence will be elicited tending in the remotest degree to show complicity or collusion in any ono particular In this oonnection it may be well to inquire, In what did this charge of unfair dealing on the part of the Government agents originate ? Simply in a desire to throw out the impression for political effect, that the Government wam not conducted upon strictly honest principles The ides of November were approaching, and it was found necessary to send forth s^ne olec tioneering trick to poison the public mind be fore the antidote eould follow it. The <? gold spoon" juggle of Mr Ogle, and its effect upon the election of lb40 had not been forgotten, and it was deemed necessary to aaaail the Ad ministration by concoeting false and unscrup ulous charges against the reputi lion of gen tli men who are sans ptur el sans reproehr. But mch are the behests of fanaticism ; buch the oontemptible subterfuges to which its vo taries will resort. These charges are, bow ever, beooming a pert and parcel of the tec tiofl of every quadrennial election, And may be looked for with as much regularity as the changes of the moon Junius. Kunchauten tm ?Some of the newspapers are really either bard pressed for new?, or, envious of the inventive genius of the coun try?as exhibited in the weekly publication of the list of patents?are trying their wits to become triumphant competitors As an in stance, we notice a paragraph in the Phila delphia BuJUtin of yesterday, saying that " Mr. Breekinridge really made a proposition to Mr. Buchanan at the Wheatlands, on Wed' nesday, on the subject of his withdrawal'' from the Presidency. The editor adds, " the plan is to get Mr. Donelson also to withdraw, and unite the Democratic and the American tickets in the persons of Fillmore and Breck inridge." " Suoli a ticket." the Munchausen continues, " Mr. Breckinridge thinks, will be likely to succeod against Fremont and Day ton." The U nil f tin concludes thus : " Nor have we learned what response Mr. Buchanan made to the proposition." No: and the editor never will hear; for a reason which must be plain to every man of common sense ; tho story being a weak " invention of {the enemy serving the purpose of a laugh, as a fruitless electioneering attempt to damage the Democ racy. The Six New Steam Frigates ?The Uni ted States steamer Wabash arrived at New York, yesterday afternoon, from a two days' trial trip. The dispatch says that " the ship has been thoroughly tested, and performed to tho entire satisfaction ff Commodoro Pauld ing, Captain Engle, and Chief Engineer Mar tin " The last named gentleman, we loam, had all along predicted the success of this new steamer. She is now the tlagship of the licme Squadron, superseding the frigate Potomac. The Merrimac is on her way to Southampton, England, in continuation of her six month*' trial trip These vessels are the only two of tho six in commission. Tbe Colorado and Roanoke are at Norfolk, the Minnesota at Philadelphia, and the Niag ara at New York?all i>fl>at, and in tho pro cess <-f completion. Kansas?Additional Instructions ? It is understood that the reoent dispatcher sent to Governor Geary aud to General Smith are to the effect that additional aid will be rendered, if necessary, to maintain the public peace and to bring to punishment all acts of violenco or disorder, by whomsoever perpetrated. No parties or bodies of armed men are to bo al lowed to carry on military operations in the Territory, excepting such person? as are regu larly enrolled by General Smith in tho United States scrvice. California State Election ?We see it gen erally stated that the State election of Cali fornia was held oa the 3d of September. This is a mistako. By the I?w of California, the Stato election ev?ry fourth year, viz: the year of the Presidential election, is deferred until the Presidential election takes place, and both are held on the satno day. Conse quently tho State election in California this year will not occur until the 4th of November. Dispatches-?Wo learn that Thomas 11 Looker, pureer in the U. S. Navy, arrived in the city this morning, bringing dUpatchos to the Navy and State Departments from the Commander of the I?rszil Squadron and our Minister at the Court of Brazil 'ihose for the Navy Department concern, it is guessed, the difficulties on board tho brig Bainbridge, just arrived. Commodore Smith, the Chief of the Bureau of Yards and Docks, returned to the city yes terday, after a few weeks absence, for the benefit of his health, which, we are pleased to learn, has been much improved by his trip and the cessation ilr? m the arduous duties of that responsible and important station. Award.?The contract for building the new Custom Hou^e iw?d Post Office at Alexandria, was awarded by the Secretary of the Treasury to Messrs. Walker 1 McCollum, for all but the iron work, and propoisals will be again invited for that portion of the work.

A gen eral melee th?i* began, aud the llall was clear ed in a few minutes, of the party escap ing out of the windows. Ono of the members of the meeting suoccdsd in getting out of the crowd vritb tbe loss of b is cat, and was fol lowed by the crowd up to Baltimore Street, where he took refuge in a store and left oy the rear tioor. But few parse ns ware struck, the object buing apparently to break up the meet ing without usin^ serioaus personal violence Though our citizens are universally opposed to the principles which the meeting advocated, the course pursued was disputable, and can only help tho cause it waa ic tended to crush. The most of the disorderly persons present were mere youths, and of the elass that too of ten disturb the peace of the eity. The right minded of neither the other parties would countenajice ?uch a proceeding, well knowing that a handfull of Black Republicans can effect nothing in thia city or State. The parties proaiinemt in the meeting, und against whom the violence of tho crowd was directed, were Messrs. F. 8. Corkran, Win. Gunnison, Jacob Fussell. and a man, Mr. M? reditb, who has attained some notoriety asai'treet preacher Mr. Coikrau was chased up Baltimore stroet and a portion of bis olothing torn off. The others were followed in various .directions, but none, it is believed, received any serious per sonal injury ^ A Wonderful Swimmbu ?Th? Boston (Mas sachusetts) Evening Lodger of M'onday says : " Yesterday afternoon an irishman went down to India wharf, divested himself of .his olothing, which he threw overboard, and then jumped into the water He was soon pulfced out, and when asked to give a reason for proceed ings, he said that he was bound for Ireland to roacu? his countrymen, ^Je was linked up t> POLITIC AX* ITEMS.

(lliORtJETOWN CORRESPONDENCE Georgetown, September 12. 1858 The new arrangement, invented by Mr. W' T. Duvall, for unloading coal boats though the bottom of the boat was fully tested at the Lonaeoning Company 's docks yesierday. Quite a large number of persons were present to witness tha experiment, (with a loaded boat) which was, so far as we could learn. perfectly satisfactory. We have not, a * yet, learned definitely whether Mr Ray and the company which intends shipping their coal at t^esd docks, have determined to carry out Mr Du vall's plan. It would be attended with con siderable expense in the beginning ; but the general impression is that it would be largely

more than overcome in the end by the groat s aving of time and labor in the unloading and reloading of the coal. The experiment yes terday proved conclusively that the unloading of boats through tho bottom, without the ne cessity of drawing off the water from the dock is altogether practicable Mr Duvall is very sanguine tVat ten boats constructed for the purpose, with three cylinders each, could be unloaded in a day with his plan, if fully car ried out 11 E Pluribus Unum" is mi'takon it he sup poses that our item of Wednesd ay was in tended as a 44 dead shot" to forestall the m ;t ter, or prejudice in any manner the changes of any of the many who will offer sites for the custom house and post office building. Our ideas, liko those to whom we first alluded, can be explained in a few words. But two bene fits can result from the construction of such a building, viz : the circulation among our busi ness men of tho amount that will be expended in its construction, and the ornament it will be to that portion of the town where it may be locatei Therefore, we, in common with others, de?ire to see it placed at some point where it will not be entirely hid from public view; and tho point we alluded to being both elevated and central, induced us to suggest it as a suitable one.
