EVENING STAR. WAS If 1 NGTO N CITY: FRIDAY t'rtober 3, 196?. Uir Advertisement* ahould be handed la bj fet o'clock, m., otherwise they may BOt appear onMI the next day. ( SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS The Union quotes from the speeches of Messrs Seward, Hale and Wilson, and up?n their testimony lays it down as established troth that the Republioan organisation hM for its ultimate object the abolition of slavery In all the Southern States, and that its par. pose is to be accomplished by first getting possession of the several departments cf the government, snd thereby making it sure that no more slay* States are to be admitted. The Union lays: 14 Surveyirg the field from thisstend point, we think we discover evidences of * settled fturpose on the part cf a portion of the Fremont eaaers either to practise a fatal fraui upon the conservative portion of the North, or to consummate a scheme of treason upon that Krtion of the black Republican party which j given it its vitality and strength If the objects of the black Republican organisation, as distinctly laid down by its great leader, Mr SewaTd, are to be carried out in the event of the election of Mr Fremont, then the late development? indicate a fraudulent purpose to quiet the apprehensions of disunion which have taken-possession, with great propriety, of thousands upon thousands of the northern people. If the developments to which we allude are honestly intended as foreshadowing the administrative policy of Fremont, then Sewaid atd his wing of black Republioans are to be cheated by the rankest party trea ?on " The Union proceeds to comment upon the faot that Fracoir P. Blair and Speaker Banks> acknowledged leaders in the Republican army, have both come before the publio within the last few weeks for the avowed purpose of de claring the objects of thtir party, and that utterly repnJiatc the programme of Messrs. Seward, Hall, and Wilson Mr. Blair affimS that he holped to instal Repub licanism for the purpose of adding to the sc cwity of sUrery in the southern States. Mr BanVi says that whoever intimates that his paiiy intend* to interfere with h'avery in tho States is guilty of a bold and ba^ele^ slander. He goes still further . htf adopts and .endorse3 the Lon-interveation prlMij)!e of the juansas bi!l, and says that his party #?nts ns? i>;-her legislation for the settlement of the difficultly? in Kansas. The Union urges that tbe^ cir oumitances and others give plausibility to tie idea thatMes-rs. Blair, Banks, Bennett, miM Fremont have conspired together to betray the originators and founders of Republicanism; and 3 et, it add3 : " It is so difficult for us to believe that so bold an act of treachery could be resorted to. even by men who have proved traitors to their former political associations, that we still in cline to cur first impression, and conclude that the change of programme has been made with the knowledge and approval of all the leaders, and for the purpose of avoiding the charge of dkunionism which threatens their overthrow. As Republicanism has existed and prospered *>7 a succession of fraud*, it is the safer con clusion tba* *t has determined to seek its final triumph by the means." The Intelligencer, alluding the mtional boast about the progress of the counirj, says : " Certainly, its growth in all branches of induetry acd in all departments of develop ment and wealth is truly marvellous. We oould wish that its progress in moral growth was one halt or even one quarter as rapid or great. But let that pass Our aim in this paragraph is in a different direction. We perceive by the official tables just publisbed that the revenues of Government during the last fiscal jear, in spite of all the efforts of the Government to keep them down, amounted, in round numbers, to seventy-four millions of dollars , and its expenditures (what na tion was there ever under the sun whose ex penditures did not keep pace with the increase of its income') amounted to fifty-sevtn mil lions of dollars' Here is a proguss to " give as pause " PERSONAL ....George Peabody, Esq., is on a visit to Boston ....

The New York Day Book says ?"It is clearly evident that a month's tuition in Wall street would vastly improve the * product ' of Mr. Speaker Banks's knowledge in political economy. At all events he would find out that the cotton gin did not create cotton, nor McCormick's reapers create wheat." .... The Dublin correspondent of the Lon don Time^ r ays that a respectable professional man, recent y returned to Dublin from New Orleans, is ready to aver on oath, if called upon, that .luring his residence at the latter place he bad seen John Sadlier bodily striding through the streets of New Orleans.

The Late Duel in eouth Carolina ?1The recent duel has occasioned mnoh comment in the public press throughout the country, and hence every thing connected with the tragedy ie of general interest. The duel, which re suited in the death of Mr. Taber, took plaee, it is stated, in conseqnence of a peremptory challenge to that genUeman for alleged offen sive matter published in the Charleston M?r. enrf, the name of the author of which was not demanded. It now appears that on the 27th of Septem ber, Edmund Rhett, jr., addressed to the Hon# A. G. Magrath the following note : " Sib : It has just come to my knowledge, that your brother, ?. Magrath, Esq., has sent a challenge to the editors of the Meroury, on account of tho publication in that paper of the articles signed 4 A Nullifler.' With a view of preventing a collision between our mutual friends, I hereby avow myself the author of those articles I trust, sir, that you will see the propriety of relieving others from the probable and painful consequences of vindi cating your honor, by vindicating it yourself " My friend, Dr. Furman, will make the ne cessary arrangements." To this Mr Magrath, under date of tho 30th ultimo, replied as follows : 14 Sir :?Your note of the 27th iost , was handed to me, on Sunday, in Aiken, by Dr. Furman, to whom I stated, I would return an answer in Charleston 44 Tonr communication gave me the first in timation that any difficulty had grown out of the publication of certain articles of which you have avowed yourself the author. 441 took the most effectual means, circum stanced as I was, to put a stop to the proceed ings of which you notified me. 441 had hoped that these means would have proved successful; that they were not, was entirely beyond my control. I came to the city the day after the receipt of your note in Aiken : I then for the first time learned that definite arrangements had been made for a duel between Mr. Taber and my brother, the time for their meeting having been fixed at an hour prior to the arrival of tbe cars. 44 Your declaration of being the author of the articles w'lich have appeared in the Mer cury, addressed to myself, is of no interest or consequence to me. Should I deem it requi site to take any step for meeting the unpro voked charge* and aspersions, 1 shall follow the dictates of my own sense of duty and pro priety, aided therein by the counsel of friends, and not regarding tho suggestions of my as sailant. To the public as well as myself it is due that this correspondence should be known." Mr. Magrath has now formally withdrawn as a candidate in the pending election for member of Congress from the Charleston dis trict. Dodging !?A custom prevaild of 44 taking the vote" on board of steamboats, railroad cars, etr, confined principally to the Fillmore , and Fremont supporters, who thus manage to make it appear ths t, on an averago, Buchanan is'ewasiderably in the minority. To let them tclt* tho story, ha oan scarcely, anywhere, mus ter a corporal's guard ! Recently, in " accordance with this prevail ing mania of tho time*," a vote was proposed to be taken on the train in which Presi dent Pierce wss a passenger, between New York an i Stamford, when, according to the Evening J'ot t, the President refused to vote v whereupou, that paper remarks: 41 This 41 dodge' ' of the President will hard ly satisfy the pa blic, for the locality had nothing to do wit a his simple expression of opinion, and wc m ay naturally conclude that Mr Pierce, though a tried member of the Buobaarer party, cannot swallow eitber its platform or aaiididate?in other words, oven Franklin Piesce is unwilling to vote for James Buchanan. Iti?;forthe friends of tho latter gentleman to d^te.-mine whether this ebould be matter of rejevo ing or of sorrow. *' We merely alif do to the remarks of the Post to show tte contemptible shifts to which it and kindred journals are now reduced, to strike a blow at a President who scorns such petty contrivan ces as voting in the cars, to bolster up theca aseof Fremont The "dodge,"' as it is called, of* tbe distinguished gentleman was right and pjroper, as he was unwilling to make himself a party to this (4 mania of the tinea." The people will settle the question at the ballot-b ox.

Tbe United States steamship Niagara will probably make her trial trip on the 28tb inst. ?""be ie at New York, and has all her maahinery completed. The I nitad States steamship Mississippi is still on the dock, but the work is progressing rather slowly, for tbe alleged reason that the greater number of hands in the Brooklyn Nary Yard are employed board the Niagara and the Resolute. The last-named vessel will be ready for sea by the 1st of November. This bark it will be reeolleeted, was found by Ameriean whalemen in the Arctic seas, having been abandoned by the British expedition in search of Sir John Franklin. Oar Government par chased her from the salvors, to be presented, in a repaired condition, to the British govern* ment. A Whopper!?We notico the following going the rounds of the press, and it is on a par with the falsehood that Mr. Buchanan will with* draw aa a candidate for the Presidency : " The Pittsburg Journal says : 1 Robert J Walker has admitted openly and freely his opinion that John C. Fremont would be elected President of tbe United States at the next Presidential election .' " We happen to know that Mr. Walker en tertains a precisely contrary opinion, and is more oonfident than ever that Mr. Buchanan will win the day in the approaching contest Let the Munchausens try again. A oontin ual resort to falsehood, in the absence of faots, is now characteristic of the journals opposed to the Democracy.

The Demccratsof tho 12th district of New York (Dutchess and Columbia) havo nominated William Chamberlain, of Redhook, to repre sent them in Congress. Judge Benjamin Nott, son of the venerable Dr. Nott, of Union College, is stumping it for Buchanan and Breckinridge, with great effect wherever ho goes.

Buck and Breck.?Albany Atlas and Argus. Ex-Oov. Floyd addressed an immense con course of citizens from tho steps of the Mer chants Exchange, N Y., on Thursday after noon. His remarks were listened to with marked attention, and continued for two hours a fervent strain. One of the mo3t prominent points of bis speech was his argument to prove that the Republicans were clearly and solely responsible for a perpetuation of the wrongs and outrages committed in Kansas by their refusal to pass the Senate bill of Mr. Toombs. S >rce half a dozen steamboats left New York on Wednesday morning, csrrying crowds of Democrats to join a great Buchanan and Breckinridge mass meeting of the ocean and river counties at Poughkeepsie. The steamers were beautifully decorated with banners and flags, and made a very imposing show as they went one after another up the river. Their departuro was signaliied by the discharge of cannon and other demonstrations of enthu siasm on board and on shore The meeting was a great gathering, and speeches were made by Senator Hunter, of Va , Col Pres ton, of Ky.. and others The Republican authorities of Pennsylvania have made a " requisition" upon Mr. Hamlin, our governor elect, to go to that State and en list in the Republican cause there They wish him to tell the Pennsylvanians how the thing was done so handsomely in Maine, and no man can do that with better effect than he who has borne tbe Republican banner on to such a glo rious triumph in the "Dirigo State." Mr. Hamlin will, we learn, leave for Pennsylvania in a few days ?Bangor Jeffersonian If Mr. Hamlin makes a clean breast of it, and tells exactly " how the thing was done," he will own up to the Pennsylvanians a pic ture of fraud, bribes, and double voting by the black Republicans such as they never dreamed of.

On Wednesday an examination cf Devon and Alderney bulls, cows, quick draught and saddle horses upon the horse track, imported cattle, working oxen and fat cattle, a trial of speed and a grand cavalcade ot all horses and colts upon exhibition. On Thursday an examination of mules and j icks, a trial of *peed upon the h<>rse track, and an exhibition of trotting horses under the saddle and in double harness. Oa Friday a grand trial of speed upon tho horse track, including trotting horses in single harness In the meantime, a large force of men will be en gaged in preparing tbe extensive enclosure and grounds lor the reception of visitors, and ? should good weather favor the exhibition, it will doubtless prove a grand and imposing I demonstration of our agricultural farming in j terests ?Baltimore Sun California, by the votes oast in the State, is the eleventh in the confederacy, but taking the population is only the twenty-fourth State in tho Union. This is caused by there being inoro full grown men in proportion to popula tion than in any other State. Tho Cali&rutans are disposed to grumble at this condition of affairs, because it reduces tbe influence of the State in tbe Electoral College, where it has only four votos ; but they can alter the condi tion themselves much more readily than the Constitution can do it for them. Instead of running away from their wivos in the Atlantic States, as many of them do, they should take them with them, and thus contribute to de stroy the inequality which exists between the voting population of tho State and its ropre : .entation ? ?
