The document is a deposition of Mr. Buchanan given in 1851, in ? cm* pend ing in London, jn which Co'. Frem mt was toed on fur drafts, amounting to ?19,500, drawn by him in March, 1847, as Govenior ef Cal fomia," on the Secretary of State, (Mr Buchanan,) end by him protested for want of authority in " Governor ' Fremont to make the drafts The Union demonstrates con e'nively from the official records that the specific charge agaitstCol. Fremont, in con Motion with the transaction referred to in Mr. Eucbanan's deposition, is in no respect affected by his proof, and that the Tribune either igtorantly mistakes the charge, or it wilfoUy seeks to escape from the force of the official eridenoe. Quoting from these records the Union proves: ?'That Mr. Buchanan's evidence has not the remotest bearing upon the charge that Colonel Fremont received from the govern ment SI9.500. which be failed to apply to the payment of draft#. The sequel of the matter ahowa bow mach the government suffered in the transaction In the suit, judgment was rendered against Colonel Fremont for nearly $ SO. 000, embracing interest, costs, and dama ges. Our government, in a spirit of great liberality, although it had already paid the amount of the drafts to Colonel Fremont, in terposed by special act of Congress, and not only paid the amount of the judgment, but alto tbo amount of Colonel Fremont s pergonal expenses, making a sum exceeding $50 000. To all intents and purposes this was Colonel Fremont's individual debt, and afterwards, upon the settlement of bis accounts with the government, he refunded the amount of the drafts leaving him now equitably indebted in the turn of $35,000. This result has followed from his failure to make the application of funds which it was his duty to make Mr. Buchanan's deposition leaves Colonel Fremont to stand upon the official records, which fix upon him the charge beyond all possibility of ?scape/' The lnttlligmc?r, in undertaking to define ita political position, teems fully and painfully aware of the difficulty it labors under in sup porting a candidate for the Presidency und at the eatne time repudiating the platform upen which that candidate stands. It says : ?l If political proscription and religious in tolerance arc, as is charged, a part of the rit ual of the order which bas placed Mr. Fillmore at ita head, the Whig party, in adopting him as ita nominee, can assume no complicity with eucb an uncharitable and anti-republican po litical creed " But if Mr Fillmore i3 elected will it not be eti.umph of this same '? political proscription a:d religious intolerance and by what po litical casuistry will the Whig party evade the charge of 14 ccmplicity" in this triumph ? The Intelligencer expresses the hope that no one I Will understand it in anything it has written M intending, either directly or by implication, to reflect aught of censure upon those of ita politic a1 friends who, in the absence of a Whig eacd date, and before any National Conven tion of the big party had been actually held or w a regarded by many as even probable, have already committed themselves to the support of another caniidate than Mr. Fill in re. It say;: *' It is not for us to judge whether the re oommendationsof the Wbig Convention would have wrought any change in the final deter- I m mat ion oi such Whigs, patriotic as wo know them to be, bad they withheld the format.on of their decision and the expression of their I deliberate opinions until the present moment I But it ia not too much to say that to many of I them it eeemed the part of wisdom and patriot- I i?m to throw their voices and votes tor Mr I Fillmore's Democratic competitor, not so muck I from any distrust of Mr Fillmore himself, < r I of his high capacity for the exalted atation to I wb'.oh be aspires, as becauso hie prospects of I ?access were deemed too slender to render him I an available candidate at a time when, ac- I cording to their judgment, the prevalence of I a party opposed alike to Mr Fillmore and to I Mr Buchanan is most of all to be deprecated. The conclusion et which they arrived is vin die a ted no leas by the purity of their motives than by the peculiar circumstances of tho time in which they were called to act.'' i Til Know Notiihgs or Baltimore, last I night nominated Ihomas Swann as their car- I didate for the Mayoralty of that city. !

Crawford, the sculptor. Prominent among these models is the Genius of America, represented as a female of giant proportions; her dress, not hooped, but loose and Mowing; nor is her waist wasp like, under the assumed compression of a corset! Her breathing apparatus being free from exterior pressure, sbe exhibits in her countenance no symptoms of pain from obstructed respiration. Her starry robe is carelessly hanging from the shoulder. On her right are sunrayi, and on her left the famous bird, the name of which is Eagle, with a plentiful supply of darts in his talons, as a threat or warning to those who may offend the liberty ot which he is an emblem. In such an event, should the provo cation oome from a foreign foe, he wonld find republican legions to assist him with the most approved military pyrotechnics. This figure of the Genius of Amerioa, with its embellish ments, is for the centre of the tympanum A figure is to represent War; not in the Romany costume, as of him who is seen in a niche on the eastern portico, grasping a sword^ but in the dress of a Continental cfficer. He has his hand upon the hilt of bin long-knife, as much as to say. " If I draw it I shall fling away the scabbard, and at once 1 go in' for hard fighting." Such is the expres sion of the countenance as "done" in marble, according to our reading of it. We must con* gratulate the artist on giving his model a re spectable physiognomy?and not a visage which might be mistaken for that of a bandit. The face expresses earnestness, or determina tion, such as was becoming our patriotic fore fathers. Commerce is another good figure. A thought ful, venerable, "sttid and steady" looking gentleman is seated on a bale well-roped ; in his right hand is a roll?which, if unfurled, would, probably reveal the fact that our ton nage and number of trading vessels excoed those of any other nation of the world?his left hand rests on a giot>e, which has another bale as its ba.-e. Near this are two small bags one numbered 30 000, and the other 35,000; and as if to convey an indisputable fact as to their eontents, one of them has burst from the inside pressure. The wand of Midas would not have been amiss, had it been convenient to us, to transmute the marble money into the auriferous substance. The Mechanic is represented reclining as if to rest himself from the fatigue of his honest toil. A wheel is near him, to typify machinery> while he holds in his hand a hammer. His sleeves are rolled up, exhibiting a profusion of muscle, and his face expresses honesty, and I contentment of mind ; in fact, a fair develop- I ment of that indispensable class of commu- I nity. The Woodman is incorporated in the artistic I programme, and there are many good points I about the statue It seems to be generally I thought that he has made his cuts rather too | high up the trunk ; but this apparent defec1 I may vanish after it shall have been placed in I its appropriate place, and viewed from a point I more favorable to the effect designed. That 1 " venomous sarpint" rearing its saucy head I near the aforesaid trunk is in danger of being I injured ! Of the larger figures, there are to be an In- I dian Chief, a Hunter, and an Indian Family I The Schoolmaster?an institution essential I to republicanism and good government?is I here seen, " teaching the young idea how to I shootin other word*, instructing the pretty I little fellow from a book. The tator has his I arm around the waist of his pupil, which in- I dieates kindness and affection. The cowhide I and lash, and dunce-cap, are not visible. I These are abandoned to more refined and mer- I oiful instructors! The idea is teaching, not I flagellation and juvenile mortification Two Youths appear in the expressive mar- I ble. The smaller carries a book under his I arm, while his companion delights him with I bright pictures of the future, pointing away, I as if to encourage the listening juvenile. I There is no '? show" whatever of the whisky I bottle, brickbats, clubs, and other emblems of I rowdjism in connection with these young gen- I tlemen. I In addition, there are other marble and I plaster figures in the workshops ; among them I tiio bead and thoulders of an Indian ; an II- I dian woman resting a water basin on her bend- I ed knee; a male Indian with a similarly con- I i.ructed vessel on his shoulders, sinking under I its weight and making a crooked face ; sheavo8 I of wheat, etc. We learned, on inquiry, that the workmen comprise natives of Switzerland, Ireland' America, Germany and Italy. They maka exact copies in marble of the plaster models; a businecs which requires extreme care and a steady hand. Political In genuity?For months previous to the late so-called Whig National Conven tion, our neighbor, the Intelligencer, was in a dense fog, and to such a degree was the vision of the editor obfuscated that he could see nothing whatsoever "attractive" in any one of the three political parties ; on the con trary, there was more to " repulse " But th? convention, compcsed of political doctors, pro vided a remedy for the defective eyesight and, as the result of the labor* of these ocu lists, he now professes to behold in Mr. Fill more?not in Andrew Jackson Donelson?the leader of the party that " carries the flag and keeps step to the music of the Union," and this, too, in the language of a resolution of the Convention, " without adopting or referr ir g to the peculiar doctrines of the party which had already selected Mr. Fillmore as its candidate;" which " peculiar doctrines," it is well kn^wn. would exclude even the senior editor of the Intel! ig?nce> from ?' ^tate, Federal, and municipal office or government employment," among tbe other "uncharita ble and anti-republioan" features of the Know Nothing " political creed." The ingenuity of our respected contempo rary lie3 in the fact that the Intelligencer supports Mr. Fillmore as a Whig, notwith standing the Know Nothings, in the language of that paper, broke down the Whig party, and, upon its ruins, according to the assump t on enunciated in the original Know Nothing platform, raised the proscriptive organisation upon the ruins of that and of the Democratic party ! " Consistency thou art a jewel." A Myatery of the Plain.-We are in debted to a friend for the following extract from a letter by Coote Lombard, C. K , in the employ of the Topographical Bureau, written from Camp Haley, Saline fork of Kaw river, forty fire miles weit of Fort Riley, Kansas Territory, September S 18*6: ?J Whilst up at the K?w Hyer, last week, (thirty-seven miles from here, eighty-two from Fort Riley.) some of the esoort found the wreck of an ambulance in a little creek tmp* tying into the Kaw about half a mile from camp It had been broken up and thrown into the creek It wm of the larger class, such as is used by the hospital department, but may haye been one of the Salt Lake mail atages. It had an iron sten behind, and swin gle-tree for six animals llow it came there is the mystery, for where it was found is at least forty miles from any heretofore traveled road?oars being a new read, and, bofore we explored it last summer, supposed to be im practicable for wagons on account of the rugfedneas of th? Smoky Hills, but oyer whfoh our guide (a Delaware Indian) took us through a beautiful pass in the hills or moun tains. 141 expect there has been suae foul play connected with this ambulance. The soldiers put some parts of it together. The hind wheels, which were broken off from their proper axle, they pat upon the fore axle. With these and the coupling pole we have brought it this far down, and will take it into Fort Riley. Where it was found id the hunt ing ground of the Kiownys, Arrapahoes, Oheyennes, and Pawnees. Judging from the tires, it appears to have been iu u?e but a very short time." Alarm!?Mr. F. P. Blair writes along let ter to the editor of the New York Evening Post, complaining of the recent Democratic demonstrations in the neighborhood of Silver Spring. He is particularly displeased with the pole raised in honor of Buchanan and Breckinridge; and, as if sensibly impressed with the doom of the Republican party, fancies he sees in the buck's head and horns the scull and cross-bones which ornament the apothecary's label of poison, to which Mr. Blair now appears to be as averse as he is to the Democraey. Decision?Attorney General Cushing has decided that the additional per centage given to navy agents under the act of March 3,1855, commences on that day, but is to be appor tioned over the whole official year, and not credited to any part of the year, in case of death or resignation.

The Late Stabbing Case?Condition or the Wounded ?At a late hour last evening we visited Loudens]ager's Hill, for the pur po^e of inquiring after the condition of the wounded who were so ruthlessly stabbed by the Italian Antonio, on Saturday night last. We found Col J M-iybury Turner much more composed and with less pain, though bis phy sician says he is yet in a most critical condi tion The left side of the chest is somewhat swollen bv the air which has penetrated through the wound. Mr. Thomas Woollen was ultK) easier, though the blood is still upon his lui gs, and the air passes through tho wound whenever he speaks His condition is not thought so favorable aa that of Col. Turner Mr. Peter Pfclta is doing very well, though his injury is of a painful character A large num ber of perions are constantly going to tho houses of the wounded and great excitement revails in the vicinity. Frederick Pinkney, sq , the assistant prosecuting attorney, visit ed the wounded this morning, but we could not learn if he took the deposition of Mr. Woollen The favorable condition of Mr. Turner did not render it necessary at the time. The elder of tho prisoners, after being taken to jail, gavo his name as Antonio Faupaier, and says that tho other is his son He states that they have been in this country but little more than a year, and reuched this city from Philadelphia on Friday night lait He al leges that he paid for the privilege of sleeping in the ice house, but we are assured such is not-the fact. He also says that some five or six persons beat him before he used the dag ger in self-defence. That statement, too, is untrue, as be Uabbed all three of the parties a half hour before he wan beat, and he could then have escaped had he not returned to gain possession of his organ. Both of them are extremely unprepossessing in appearance. Baltimore American. Where he BBLONas.?Ex-Qov.

In noticing the organisation of the statistical branch in the Department of State, the St. Louis Evening News savs: " Mr. Flagg, who was for some years a cftisen here, ij well known to the people of St. Louis as a gentleman of fine talent and great industry, tic is known in the literary world as the author of the 'Howard Queen,' 'City of the Sea,' and other works. He is now in a position to give full scope to his abilities, and will no doubt do honor to it. Already pome papers of much value on commercial subjects have been pre pared by Mr. Flagg and issued from the State Department " POLITICAL ITEMS. The Hon Geo. P. Marsh, of Vermont has

He has been looking around Ihe district since the adjournment of Congress. Among the speakers at a political meeting at Parkersburg, Va , a few days since, were B W Jackson and W. L Jackson, on the Democratic side, and Gen J J. Jackson and J J Jackson, jr , on the American side Hon Wm. H. Seward writes to Detroit to siy that if he shall be in the United States on the 2d day of October, wiih strength enough to appear as a man among men. he will speak to as many as will honor him with their attend ance at Detroit on that day. Hon. John Walworth, of Green county. Wis consin, president of the convention held at Madison. July 13tb, 1&54, whioh formed the "Republican" party of the Badger State, I has repudiated nigger-worship, and come out for Buchanan. The New York Herald, the organ of tho Frtmonters, in speaking of the great Demj ocratic torch-light demonstration in that city, says the procession was composed for the most part of "unwashed Irish laborers." The saeer at the Irish citisens is as pitiful and con temptible as the source is degraded and base from wbonce it er.amates. I Thus far, in Massachusetts, they have for Governor, and other State officers, the Demo- I cratic ticket, the Whig tioket, the Fillmore " American" ticket and the Gardner or Fre- I mont "American" ticket.

Among the distinguished speakers to be present, are Hon. A H H I Stuart, Ex-Gov. Floyd, Hon. John M Botti, Hon. John Letcher, John M. Speed, Esq , and Qen. Chapman. A gentleman who has just returned from I South Bend, Indiana, informs the Adrian I Watchtower. that three hundred Germans of I the town of South Bend, who have hitherto I intended to vote for Fremont, abandoned the I fortunes of that aspirant on the day prior to that on which the Watchtower's informant 1 left, and hoisted a Buchanan flag. i A bill has been introduced into the Legis lature of Texas setting apart a valuable tract of land as large as the State of Tennessee, the northern boundary of which is within thirty I miles of Kansas, in which land bounties are I offered to slaveholders who will settle there. I The object of the bill is to interpose the staunch I barrier of a slaveholdingoommunity between the influence of the possible free-State institu- I tions of Kansas and tho slaveholding counties I of southern and middle Texas. : The Baton Rou^e Advocate (Louisiana) paid I the following complimentary tribute to Mr Buchanan : "The word 4.s?/<' is synonymous with the I name of J amee Buchanan He is a Bafe man Great interests may be confided to his keep- I ing, with that same sense of security that they I would be faithfully guarded, which would in spire the private citisen who had deposited his private wealth in the iron chest of the I national treasury." Mr. Joseph William, a planter, of Louisiana, writes to the editor of the Memphis Eagle, that while on a visit to the North he oalled on Mr. Fillmore, and in reply to questions Mr F. stated that be was decidedly opposed to the doctrine of squatter sovereignty, as advocated by C ass, Douglas, Buchanan and Van Buren; that he believed that a Territory, until its inhabitants were sufficiently numerous to au thorise the formation of a State constitution. could only be regarded as in a condition of pupilage, possessing no sovereignty whatever ; and referred to the Utah and New Mexioo Territorial bills, sanctioned by him, as a cor rect indication of his opinions 1ST A crasy man was found riding on the cow-oatoher of the loeomotive on the arrival of a train of cars at Waukegan, Wis , on the 15th inst , but how or where ho got into the position he occupied was a mystery to every one.

A servile insurreot^u, it is stated, was lately fortunately discovered in time at Co lumbus, Texas, among some four hundred slaves to rise against the white population and murder and rob them. They would prob ably have completed their design had not a slave informed his master of the fact. A num ber of the negroes were in custody, and some two or three were to be hung. Kansas Election.?On the 1st of October a new Territorial Legislature is to be elected in Kansas. The National Kansas Committee in a recently published statement estimates the real Free State inhabitants of the territory at the present time at 30,000, and the Pro-slavery settlors at 5.000 The number of Free State inhabitants is no doubt put down much too high. 3S ATTENTION BALTIMOR I AN? - AU inMfiti of -Ti'f sow la this city are requested to rrrrta' Jun<man's Hotel, near the Railroad Dep t, TO MORROW NIGHT, the 94th last , at 7# o'clock Friend* of Back and Rr*ok%* at your poet, an matters ap pertaining to the costing election will be before you.
