EVENING STAR. WASHING TON CITY: ??NDAT S?ptf?b?f 39, 1P#6. trr Advert!aeir*nt? should be handed la bj 11 o'clock, m., otherwise they may not appeal until the next day. HP1KIT OF THE MORHIKe PRESS. The Union continues its merciless dissec tion of Mr. Speaker Banks and of his late speech, and says, in concluding its article : 11 We would say to Speaker Banks and hi* brother managers of the Black-Republiean party : unwavering teal, unflinching courage, a daring soul, unscrupulous ambition, unti ring energy, a callous heart, and a nerveless conscience, are each and all necess?ry ele ments which go to make up the character of a successful traitor to the American Constitu tion. These qualification? you may possess , if you claim them we will not deny your claims ; but you, sirs, must remember that more than all these is necessary to the com C" te success of such treason : a corrupt, an orant, and a debased people?such as you cannot find in America?such you never will find here?such you never can make the Amer ican people You have taken the first step in treason, and fear alone will deter you from further progress?not any upbraidings of con science ; with you that time has psssed. But that step which attainted your souls with trea. ?on has sealed your fate and that of the party to which you belong It has aroused the sen* sibilities of the people, and for you and yours all is lost beyond redemption. The time you conceive of will never come." The Union. in shuwing up the late Know Nothing trick and in allusion to one of the resolutions passed, a?ks those grave and re spectable gentlemen of the lata Fillmore con vention at Baltimore by what process they per vert history and facta to make the Democratic party ?* It stands, says the Unions upon their platform a? a mere dictum, unaided by one iota of proof. The Inttlhg'ncer, In presenting to its read, ers tbe letter of Mr. Choate, (given in another column of the iftar,) administers the following rap ever the knuckles to malicious and un scrupulous partisans of the Organ kidney : " Party spirit, we know, is prone to degen erate into ia'oleraice; and the number of heated, if not unscrupulous xealots in all par ties is suffic ient to impart to them this malevo lent character. As a consequence, no man, however pure or patriotic,, in * heated political canvass, take a position al variance with a supui^ed party fealty or consistency without the risk of having bis independent ac tion ascribed to some unworthy or interested motive. In a letter published lately in our paper from Mr. Senator Pearce that gentle man had occasion to defend himself against an act of thi9 soit of injustice; and we find since, in the Boston papers, a letter from tbe Hon. Mr Choate repelling a similar impu tation, which we think it due to that dis tinguished gentleman that we should copy, although no one acquainted with his unim peachable character would deem it neces sary/' New Publications The North British Review for August (re ceived from Taylor A Maury,) contains an artiele upon " Christian Missions," which, (bough written in a more candid spirit than the one on the same subject in the July num ber cf the Westminister Review, is yet calcu lated to create something of a stir in the Mis sionary world. The article headed u The Crimean Campaign" betrays the rapidity with which the cordial understanding between the allies (English and French) has dissolved, now that peace has been declared, and the allies have no further need of each Othor. The other articles, " The Ottoman Empire," ,4 Literary Tendencies in France,'' " Holland ; its Martjrs and Heroes," '? Samuel Rogers and his Times," ?' Tbe Microscope and its Revela tions," and "Memoirs of Frederick Perthes," are all interesting and instructive. DiDirAno* or Odd Fellows' Hall ?Tbe Norfolk papers contain accounts of the dedica tion of the new hall in that city, whioh took place last week A brilliant procession march ed through several of the streets; and, on reaching the hall, tbe ceremonies were opened with prayer, when Rev. J. C. MoCabe deliv ? ered a glowing and eloquent address. He was followed by Grand Representative Edward Barry, of Indiana, and by Grand Representa tive F. E Woodbridge, of Vermont, each of of wh?m delivered appropriate orations. Af ter the oeremonies of the day were over, tbe large assembly of the Order, with numerous guests, adjourned to a sumptuous and plentiful collation spread out in another apartment of the hall, and did ample justice to the good things set before them.

WASHING TOlf HlWg AlTD GOSSIP. Another Organ Roorback Exploded!? Really, we should imagine that even the rhi noceros hide of oar talented, truthful, and ingenuous neighbor would ba suffused with a blush of shame as iu silly, malicious false hoods are successively exposed and branded. Its absurd story that Rufus Choata and Sen ator Pearce refuse to support Fillmore be cause they ware disappointed in obtaining judgeships under his administration, met with a prompt denial, it will be remembered, on the part of tho distinguished Maryland Sena tor, aad ha, at the same time, expressed his belief that tha assertion was equally untrue in regard to Mr. Choate. We stated of our knowledge that when friends suggested to Mr. Choata the propriety of permitting his name to be presented to Mr. Fillmore for the 1 nited States Circuit Judgeship he promptly and firmly opposed the idea, because be could not afford to relinquish bis practice. But the following letter from Mr. Choate himself, pub lished in the Boston papers, affords a flat, downright, and conclusive denial to the Organ roorback. What silly tale will the Organ try its band at next? Bostox, September 15,1856. Dear Sir :?Your letter informing me that Mr. Davis asserted in a public speech that the secret of my opposition to Mr. Fillmore was disappointment, created by not receiving from him an office which 1 sought or desired, was received a little out of time. I thank you for affording me an opportunity to answer at the first moment of hearing It a statement so groundless and so unjust. There is not a par ticle of truth in it, nor is there any thing to color or to suggest his informant's falsehood. I authorize and request you, if you attaoh any importance to the matter, to give it the most absolute and comprehensive denial. I never sought an office from Mr. Fillmore directly or indirectly, and never requested or authorised any other person to do so for me ; and never believed for a moment, or suspected, and do not now believe or suspect, that any one has done so or has ever mentioned my name to him in connection frith nn office. Mr. Fillmore never had a place in his gift whioh I desired or which I could have afforded to accept, even if I had thought myself compe tent to fill it, or for which 1 could under any circumstances have exchanged the indispen sable labors of my profession. Personal complaint of Mr. Fillmore I have not he slightest reason to make ; and he who thinks it worth his while to conjecture why I shall not vote for him mud accept frein me or fabricate for himself a different explanation. With great regard, your servant and fellow _ Ruros Choatb. To Jobs Carroll Walsh, Esq., Chairman Dem. Cen. Com., Hartford county, Md. Kanaae.?Governor Geary,having been duly installed in his office, has commenced his la* bors in a manner and with a spirit which should secure lor him the co-operation of all good citiiens of the territory of Kansas, de claring that in his official action he will ?' do justice at all haiards." From tbe antecedents of this gentleman we cannot doubt that his pledge he will honestly redeem. In the course of his inaugural address he says : "I cheerfully admit that the people of this Territory, under the Organic Ac', have the absolute right of making their municipal laws, and from citiiens who deem themselves ag grieved by recent legislation, 1 would invoke the utmost forbearance, and point out to them a sure and peaceable remedy. You have tbe right to ask the next legislature to revise any and all laws; and in the meantime, as you value tbe p<?ace of the Territory and the main tenance of future laws, I would earnestly ask you to refrain trom all violation of the present statues. '? 1 am sure there is patriotism oufficient in tho people of Kansas to lend a willing oVcdi ence to the law. All tbe provisons of the Con stitution of the United States must be sacredly observed, all the acts of Congress having refer ence to this Territory must be unhesitatingly obeyed, and the decisions of our courts re spected It will be my imperative duty to see that these suggastious are carried into effect. In my official action here I will do justice at all hazards. Influenced by no other consideration than the welfare of tho whole people of this Territory, I desire to know no party, no section, no North, no South, no East, no West?nothing but Kansas and my country." The Governorship of Few York ?Tho N. Y. Herald is engaged In the vain attempt to rule Mr. Buchanan off the Presidential track in the Empire State, by strongly condemning the nomination of John A. King, by the Re publicans, for Governor, and proposing that Mr. Parker, the Democratic nominee fbr that offica, be run on the Fremont ticket; remark ing, in thii conneetion, " there is every ap pearance tow that James Buchanan will be almost universally abandoned by the Democ racy of New York." We merely alludo to this freak or effort of tbe llerald as another of its political idiosyncracies. Resignation ?The resignation of Lieut. James S. Biddle has been aocepted to take effect on the 25th of September. Lieut. George T. Sinclair bal been ordered as 1st Lieutenant of tho steam frigate Wabash, at New York.

The last is thus described in the Baltimore Sun of this morning : "Mirderous Assault ?Threatened Fa* tal Termination ?The utmost excitement existed during yesterday in that seotion of the city known as Loudenslager's Hill, in oonse quence cf a murderous assault having been committed upon two well known citiseTis of that place, Col. J. Maybury Turner and Mr. Thomas Woollen. Various rumors were afloat during the day as to the circumstances attend ing this sad affair, and upon inquiry of per eons witnessing it the following statement was detailed to as: Between 12 and 1 o'clock in the morning, as these gentlemen were approaching the ~tesi denoe of Col. Turner, t^ey discovered that some parties were secreted in his iee-boose, when he approached to the door and enquired who they were, and ordered them to come oat. Immediately two men ran out, and separating, one of them ran towards the city, and the other oat the road, parties who were present following them and calling out " stop thief." The one who rau out the road was met a short distanoe beyond the place by Mr. 1 Augustas Pfeltx, who hearing the cry of his pursuers, seised and conveyed him back to where Turner and Woollen were standing. As soon as they reached the spot the man drew a large knife, and making a thrust at Turner, the blade passed through his left arm into bis breast He then quickly turned upon Wool len before he could be secured, ana plunged the knife into his breast to the depth of some five inches. He next made a thrust at Pfelti, who had hold of him, and inflicted a wound of a painful though not of a serious character upon one of his arms, at tbo same time break ing his hold upon him and effecting his escape. The several blow* were struck so rapidly that the parties could neither overpower him or es cape from his reach After breaking away he again ran out the road, and although a number of persons start ed in pursuit he eluded them for an hour or so, when he was discovered secreted a short distanoe by a negro, who reported the fact to the watchman in pursuit, who took him in custody, and in a short time threafter the companion of the assailant; and it was with the utmost difficulty that the officers could convey them to tbe eastern station house, the infuriated crowd demanding that summary unishment should be inflicted upon them, and aving so far succeeded as to plaoe a rope about the neck of the one making the assault, for the purpose of hanging him upon the spot They were however taken to the station house and committed to jail. They were Italian or gan grinderf, their organs being afterwards f jund in tho ice hou?e. Their names have nit as yet been ascertained Professor Smith and Dr. Clendenin were promptly summoned to tho aid of the injure! parties, who were immediately conveyed to the residence of Col Turner, and upon an examination of their wounds they found them to be of a nature threatening a speedy fatal termination from hemorrhages which ensued. Throughout the whole day the vicinity of Col. Turner's residence was thronged with his numerous friends, though they were both so low that but few were allowed admission to their rooms. Deputy States' Attorney Pinkney proceeded there in the afternoon to tako their deposi tions, but they wore in such a condition as to fireclude that being done. At a late hour ast night tbe physiciacs in attendance pro nounced both ?f them hopeless; thoy have sank so fast during the day as to render their surviving throughout the night as exceedingly improbable. Meeting of the American Guano Compa ny?This company held a meeting iu New York city (Georgo Wood, E.<q , of this city, presiding,) on Thursday Inst, at which tho following resolutions were adopted : Whereas, By affidavit of Captain Edward W- Turner, it appears that in December, 1855, he visited one of the islands belonging to thi* company, in the schooner " Kaluua, ' which vessel remained at anchor there for five days, and that during said time he took soundings in different places on the lee side of said island, finding good anchorage in from Itt to 45 fathoms of water, as per map submitted, and, Whereas, The said Turner found deposited on the said island, a large quantity of guano, of which he brought samples to this company, which samples contain more than double the fertilising qualities of the best of Peruvian guano, as appears by chemical and agricul tural tests submitted to our inspection, and Where**, The affidavits of Captains Theo dore Lewis and Thos D. Lucar, who subse quently visited said island as agents of this company, confirm the statements of the afore said Turner, and Whereas, Both said Lucas and Lewis re turned to the United States in different ships, and each brought samples of guano taken from said island ta this company precisely like that brought by sail Turner. Kesolv*a} That the President of this Com pany be and hereby is authorised and em powered to take the earliest measures to in troduce said guano >nto the United States, by offering the same for sale at the island, and by chartering vessels to import cargoes thereof to the several Atlantic States, New York, Bos ton, Philadelphia and Baltimore. By the Secretary? Resolved, That the trustees of the company make iinmedia'.o application to tbe Govern ment at Washington, requesting that the or ders to Commodore William Mervine, bearing date October 20th, 185ft, and which he failed to execute, be re-issued to some other officer, and that the service? of Captain Michael Ba ker be engaged, if possible, to accompany such vessel, as the agent el'this company. How an Economical Individual Saved Two Cents ?Yesterday an economical gen tleman attempted to save two cents by driving his wagon through a gate on the Germantown turnpike without paying the toll. In tho effort to accomplish this feat the economist ran into a slop cart and damaged it badly. Between the indignant driver of tbe slop-cart and the savage toll-gatherer, the bolter was fetched up with a short turn, and he was afforded an interview with a magistrate. The remit of this was the following bill : Dr. To fine for misdemeanor $10,00 " damage to slop cart 15.00 " costs 3,00 S2S.00 Cr. By two cents toll saved 00 02 Balance against economist $27,1)8 This amount was paid and the saving genius left the office with a stupendous flea in his ear and impressed with the conviction that in at tempting to save at tbe spiggot he had let it out at the bung-bole.?Phil. Bulletin. ^ Case or a Deaf Mute.?Adelia Perry' daughter of Jas. Perry, of Alden, in this oounty, is a SDrightlv girl 12 years of age. When about 12 months old she was observed to be deaf and dumb, but whether she was born iu that oondition, or lost tho power of speech by some external injury prior to that Eeriod of hor life, could not be ascertained, at it is a fact attested by her family, that she was a deaf-mute from the time she was a J ear old up to the day she was operated on by >r. Turnbull, of Buffalo, some two weeks ago. She can now hear without much difficulty, and speaks words and sentences so as to be easily understood. In faot, her articulation, now clear and distinct to an extraordinary degree, is rapidly improving, and there seems to be no roason'to doubt that she will be thoroughly cured at an early day. The child, a very bright one, with a quick, apprehensive mind, is iu ecstacies at the relief she has obtained, and expresses her satisfaction and gratitude in a very lively and pleasing manner.?Buf falo Commercial English Counsel Fees ?In the esse of Dove, the prisoner lately tried in England, Mr. Overland had $1,500, with "refreshers" of $50 per day, and S175 on the day of reply. Mr Hardy had $250, with "refreshers," and Bayley $225. The cost of getting up the case and of witnesses were about $4,300. For the defence the counsel fees were $1,500. Mr. BliM receiving $350 exclusive of ' refreshers" and consultation fees. Sergeant Wilkins had $250 with "refreshers," and Mr. Hall $200. The other expenses will not be less than $5,000, making a grand total of the "profes sional" ooet or the trial of orar ?12,000. POLITICAL ITEMS. The Cocheco Print Worka are making Fre mont and Dayton calico ! Hon Galusha A. Grow has been nominated unanimously for a fourth term in Congress by the Republicans. The Fremont clnb of Bralntree, Massachu setts, ended its career on Monday last. A few members met, and adjourned sins die. The Oswego county Gaaette, heretofore a Fremont paper, has become disgusted with that party, bucked out, and hoisted the flag of " Buck and Breck " On Thursday, there was a large meeting of the Democracy at Whitehall, Pa , which was addressed by Hon. Charles Brown and (Jan. W right. After a recant discussion in Wilmot's dis trict, one hundred roters left the disunion party in a body, and asked to be reseired into the Democracy. William Carey Jones, son-in-law of Col. Benton, and consequently brother-in-law of Fremont, publishes a letter in tha Pennsylva nia of Friday, which shows that he considers bis country's interests paramount to family ties or personal friendship Mr. Jones is an ardent supporter of James Buchanan. A writer in the Progressiva Age, a Fremont paper in Belfast, Me , says : " I affirm (and I do so with honest convictions of the truth) that the North will not submit, if they are de

feated.'' And yet the Republicans tell us they are not disunionists; Dut they charge these same sentiments upon the South. A Fillmore ratification meeting was held in Philadelphia on Saturday night at National Hall, wbioh was largely attended and very enthusiastic. Alderman Thompson presided, and addresses were delivered by Messrs. Banks, of North Carolina; David Paul Brown; Wm Hasbrouck, of New York; Cooper, of Tennessee; Sanderson, of Florida: Grimsby, of Missouri. Hon. Linn Boyd has twenty-nine appoint ments to speak at Democratic meetings in Kentucky, during the months of September and October Hon. Elijah llise has seventeen; and Col. J W. Stevenson nineteen?all in the same State. Fifty-four Democratic meetings are called in Ohio, between the 19th of Sep tember and 13th of October. Beecher's New York Independent boat's of having 25,000 subscribers, yet from thorn all it has only been able to collect S202 thus far, for tho distribution of Fremont trncts in Penn sylvania ; being lass than one cent per head on the whole list. This does not speak well for the liberality and zeal of Sharpe's Rifle Christians. A letter from E T. Brandon, of Kingwood, Preston county, Va., denies that thore is a Fremont electoral ticket in Virginia. He says :?" I happen to know all the gentlemen named as the Virginia Black Republican elec tors, and there is not a man among them, but will vote for Buchanan and Breckinridge, if he lives till November. I theretore pronounce the whole thing an unblushing, unmitigated falsehood." We are told, over and over again, by the biographers of Fremont, that his father, after his marriage with Mrs Pryor, visited the va rious tribes of American Indians for 44 ethno logical researches " Now. what has became of all these " researches?" Why hare Aey not been published to the world f From 1807 to lrfl3 we have no account of Mr. Frein6nt and his wife (perhaps,) except that ho was en gaged'in studying the character of the Amer ican Indians Here is six years' labor lo-t to the world, at least we have no account of it. Will not some enterprising Fremonter find out something about this matter ? The Democrats of Hartford. Connecticut, held a large meeting on Friday night, to wel come Senator Toucey on his return from this city. Large delegations from the adjoining towns were present Touro Hall was filled to overflowing, while outside meetings wero ad dressed in the street. Mr. Toucey made a speech, giving a history of Kansas affairs, and the bills and laws passed in relation to that Territory An immense torchlight procession was formed to march to Mr. Toucey's resi dence, and saluted him. About five thousand people were in attendance at the mooting, and the greatest enthusiasm manifested The Vigilasc* Committee ?Much has been said of late about the adjournment and disbandment of the Vigilance Committee, on and after Monday next As there seems to have been some misapprehension about the real designs of that body, we have taken some little paius to ascertain their real objects. We are assured that their intention is not to ad journ or disband, at present, at ail events, but on Monday next, to give up a large por tion of the space of rooms they have been oc cupying, and go into their original quarters, in one building, which they at first occupied and where their arms are located. Much of tho time since the organisation, they have been compelled to occupy two or three adjoin ing buildings, on account of the large number of prisoners on hand and the necessarily large guard continually at the rooms. A small guard will now be engaged for the protection of the Committee's Head Quarters, and the Executive will hold its regular meeting, and as often ae emergencies require it, but not so continuously as formerly.?Alta Californiav. Will Mr. Buchanan Withbeaw ??For a satisfactory reply to this oft-reiteratad inter- 1 rogatory, the pious editor of the Evening Bulletin, for some days past, has evidently b**en on the "anxious bench." Again and again is the question asked, and an answer demanded It it be any relief to the editor of that journal, we will stale that we are au? thorited to reply to his question in the affir mative. Mr Buchanan does intend to " with draw." In obedience to the call of the Ameri can people, on the 4th day of March, in the year of our Lord 1857, it is his purpose to " ivit/ulruw " from his calm and peaceful re treat at Wheatland, to take possession of the W hit* House, at Washington, in the capan ty of President oj the United Statts This is the only withdrawal, however, that Mr. Buchanan has in contemplation. Is the editor of the Bulletin satisfied, or does he repeat tha silly question in his prayers??Pennsylvanian No Volunteers Required in Kansas.? It seems to be very well understood that no volunteers will be required by Governor Geary or General Smith, under the order of the President for a requisition upon Kentucky or Illinois. The regular troops under General Smith, with the Katsas militia mustered into service, will constitute a force quite sufficient for all purposes of tho government in restoring quiet to the Territory.?<S>*.
