The Union publishes a letter from General Jessup upon the history of the Missouri Cum promise, fall of very interesting information of course, as its author, while possessing a fine mind well stored with information on all branches of public affairs, has since his man hood began daily recorded every thing of im portance ot interest, for reference in after times.

Wftlbrdjtevg Sickle* ?Thefollowing man ufactured-to order-paragraph gracesthe Wiih ington (telegraphic) correspondence in the New Tork Herald of yesterday : "It is a matter of complete astonishment to the friends of Siekles here that he is running in opposition to the regular nominee of the democratic party, thereby hasarding the e ec tion of that sterling democrat and tried state* man, Gen Walbridge. I am informed b? has been written to by the friends of Mr. Buchanan to leave the field, as be stands no chance of an election, and is only dividing and diitraoting the party, and may thereby cause the election of a black republican. I am just this moment informed by an intimate friend of Old fiuck that he (Buchanan) prefers Gen. Walbridge should represent the third district of your city. Tbis is reliable Mr. Sickles will please, there fore, leave the ring." The act of Mr. Sickles in " leaving the ring,' would doubtless have a beneficial effect on the price of the Mariposa stock owned by Mr James Gordon Bennett. But we incline to the opinion that Mr. S. will do nothing of the sort, however much his acceptance of the regular Democratic nomination in the third district of New York may interfere with the financial schemes of the open and avowed backers of Col. Fremont. We presume that if Mr. Sickles has been written to to withdraw by a friend of Mr. Buchanan, the writer must have been some such friend as General Walbridge himself, who did not find it convenient to declare in his speeches whether he was for his partner, Col. Fremont, or Mr. Buchanan, before the result of the recent Pennsylvania and Indiana elections was known. At this point, he, (Gen. Walbridge,) was claimed by the Fremonters as one of themselves quite up to that time This is a fact known to almost every man " an und town " That General Walbridge failed to take open and emphatic ground for Mr. Buoh&nan up to the time specified above, goes to justify the olaim of the 1? reinonters to him as their prop O'ty, as we explain. Under such circum* stances it cannot bo reasonably expected that Mr. Sickles will decline the regular Demo cratic nomination in Gen. W.'s favor; more especially?we must add?as it has been cur rcntly said f >r months past that the latter would run a stump against the Democratic nomination in the district, if failing to get it himself. Personally, no man has kinder feelings for General Walbridge than ourself But we will not permit cur personal feelings to lead us to countenance him in standing in what we regard as an equivocal position toward the Democratic party. For his sake we wish theie never had been such things as the " Mariposa" and the " Bolton and Barron" in existence. Kansas?It is worthy of nolo that peace now reigns throughout Kansas. Governor Geary has already fairly redeemed the im plied promise of pacifying the Territory in volved in his selection after his experience as a successful executive officer in a new coun try. The telegraph, it will be remembered, now chronicles only alleged stopages of " Free State settlers" about entering the Territory, which, as all the world have come to know, simply means that men going into the Terri tory for the avowed purpose of making war rather than cultivating the soil, have been prevented from carrying out that purpose? that's all. This is as it should be, as all re alize who desire that Kansas shall be left to the fair operation of the principle of self-gov ernment at the foundation of its basis law As yet the ?? shriekers for freedom," how ever, continue their misrepresentations con cerning the state of things there. That is, on the stump in the States. Thus, the bogus Governor Robinson who fled between two days from the wrath of his betrayed-sold ?California, constituents, is now in New \ork detailing fain accounts of the manner in which James II. Lane's murderers, robbers and perpetrators of arson have been de.lt with by tho outraged and excited people of the Territory. Fortunately for the causa of the continuance of the Union and order and peace in that particular Territory, the Penn sylvaria and Indiana elections wf last week have already so influenced the public mind of the North as that "freedom shrieking" is even bo soon at a great discount. After tho 4th of November we shall hear little indeed of it; as after the Presidential contest shall have been ended, there will be no inducement for the continuance of the systematic misrepre ?antation of occurrences ia Kansas, such as those with which the Freemont Press hiive been blatant for months past By the 4lh of March next nine tenths of the people of the Don slsveholding States will bo amazed on lontemplating the extent and- bold character of the Kansas-affairs humbug that has of late been successfully imposed on them for politi :al ends only. How it Waj Dons.?A gentleman in ex tensive business in Wall street, New York, peSkcrday explained to us how Huntington, ? h<> now famous Yankee forger, managed to rub his fellow business men of Now York out >f something more than half a million of dol lars in less than a year Thus, being a note ?r< ker professionally, the paper of mauy i und merchants and traders passed through lis hands. liis custom was to mako fac tim yhes of the notes left with him to negotiate on account of others, and, after having thus dis posed of the honest ones, to hypothecate the Forgeries for loans at usurious interest, lie Wat not a stock specaUtor, or a gambler, and, therefore, it ia almost morally impossible that he can have parted with the whole of tho pro ceeds of his villany, as alleged by many of tho Northern papers Our impression is, that he has far more than enough left to buy him ale.ir of any verdict of a New York jury likely to result in Iris proper punishment for his many crimes; and then to have a heavy for tuao left The chances are ten to one, it ?eems to us, that he bids fair to rank as a suc *iSsful fiaancier, rather than as the State', prison bird ho should be for tho balance of his life - Fremont'i lieljgion.?John Charles Fr? uiont-not Sewell L ,-is in a very bad box, there i. no truth iu man.

The Church Journal (of New York city) thus lifts the curtain upon their final proceedings in the case of the remission of the sentence that for twelve years past has been impending over Bishop Onderdonk of Pennsylvania: "The vote, after long discussion, passed 21 to 8, for the immediate and unconditional re mission of the sentence of suspension, under which he has buffered so patiently, quietly, and blamelessly, for twelve years There were tender and touching speeches mad* in that House, before the vote was taken-espe cially one from the Bishop of Delaware.

The Fillmore electors of the State of New York met on Wednesday last in New York city, and unai>i mously endorsed the course of the Pennsyl vania Fillmore State Central Committee in refusing to fuse on an electoral ticket with the Republican party of that State. This movement is important only as going to show the atter hollownessof the accusations against the integrity oi Mr. Sanderson, the chairman of the State Committee referred, to and the nineteen others cf the same body?out of i s total oftwenty-two?who back in now relusiig to fjse. The truth is, while a fusion on tu electoral ticket would secure for Buchanan ai d Breckinridge thirty theueand of the votes givea to the Union ticket in the reccnt Pennsylva nia election, its effect would be oven greater in New York, where thero are fifty thousai d members of the American party who stand ready to vote with the Democrats on becomirg satisfied that their Pennsylvania leaders do sign selling them out to Seward, Weed A Co.

At the Middlesex (Mass ) County Fair, tho following toast elicited great applause : Ex tract from a farmer's diary for 1856 Great scarcity of apple-sa^s and cranberry-5a<5, but plenty of Kan-jaj. The Milwaukee News asserts that there is no doubt that Wisconsin will go for Buchanan by at least seven thousand majority. Last fail the Democrats carried the S'ate by a handsome vote; and, says the News, " wo know of no change against us since last fall. There is not a county in thia State which gave a Democratic majority last fall that will not increase that majority this fall.'' Sound reasons for aupporting Fremont : be cause he never forsook Lis trust so long as ha oould get anybody to trust him.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE GaoaeaTown, Oct. 25, 1866, The following business wu transacted bj our Citj Counoils last night. In the Council, Mr. Orme presented i com munication from Mr John Blackford,complain ing of the condact of Officer Thomas, in hir ing illegally and maliciously arrested him upon a false charge; read and referred Mr. White, of the committee on streets, re ported back Aldermen's bills for the improve ment of foot war on north side of Water tfreet; ixing the grade of W ashington street, be tween Road and Stoddard ; establishing the grade of Eighth street; establishing the grade of a part of Bridge. Fayette, and Prospects streets; bill appropriating $50 for the repair of part of High street; and resolution estab lishing grade of Fayette street between Sev enth and High ; all of which were pasted Also, from the Fame committee, asked to be discharged from the farther consideration of the petition of Charles Trnnnell and other*, in relation to the improvement of Fayette street; whieh was granted Mr. Jones, from same committee, to whom was referred Aldermen's bill providing for a railing on the north side of the castarn abut ment of Bridge street bridge, recommended that the same do not pass; and the bill was accordingly rejected. Resolutions passed both Boards appropri ating $135 for the benefit of Jas F Lssex for the livery of scavenger 's horse ; #30 for John T. Donaldson for repair of watch house ; $6 for John Booth for cleaning same; $76 08 for Thos. Blundon for repair of pumps ; $7 for C. Thomas ; $520.77 for J. B Greenwell for re pair of pnmps ; and $50 for the purchase of an animal (not exactly a woolly horse) for the benefit of toe citixens generally A resolution also passed both Boards au thorizing the oommerce committee to cause a buoy to be placed upon or near the rock in the river opposite Duck lane. A petition from W. B Fowler and others re monstrating against the improvement of Olive street, was read and referred Aldermen passed bill providing for flag foot ways across Congress. Gay, Dumbarton, Boall and Road stroets; which was referred to com mittee in the Council. The report of Recorder Ould upon the act to amend the charter of Georgetown was then called up, but the hour being late both Boards, on motion, adjourned until uext Friday even ing, at 7J o'clock. Another hubbub was raised upon BriJgo street last night, by another false alarm of fire, started, vre presume, as usual, to get out the engines. We think it would bo decidedly better to close np the engine house altogether than our citizens should be alarmed and dis turbed nearly every night in this manner by a parcel of thoughtless youths, who seem t > be almost the 0Q)y persons hold of the appa ratus when it is taken out We would call the special attentive of the members of Heber Tent to the meeting adver tised for Monday evening.
