DM '?* r IaT SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS The Union adduced testimony establishing, beyond contradiction, the assertion of Senator Thomson, of New Jersey, that Col. Fremont bad nothing to do with the military conquest of California lie now stands branded as an arrant pretender to an honor belonging prop erly to others. The Union looks upon it a* somewhat amusing that Capt. Fremont should hare a'ways arrived at the field of battle the day after the action, saying 44 lie arrived at Monterey three day* tbe surrender of that city to the navy. He arrived at Loa Aegeles the < ay after that oity had surrendered to Commodore Stockton He subsequently arrived at the same city the d?y after its final capture by Commodore Stockton and General Kearney, and a few days after the decisive battles fought by those gallant ofiBcers ; and. aorord iag to tbe testimony of the Hon. Mr Coombs, he arrived at Sonoma the day after the 4 fir-t and only battle' of independence !

The Union, speculating upon the political complexicn cf the next House of Represents tiv<?s, brieves from actual and estimated re turns that the Democratic party will have a majority of filty members in that body.

WASHINGTON NUWS AND GOSSIP. The Prospect. ?All the world is nervously anxious about the probable result of the elae tion to come off on Tuesday next, thoug every bodj endowed with a thimbleful of brains is aware that its grand result Is to be the triumj h of Buchanan and Breokinndge. True, our well informed and ingenious neigh bor still busies himself with calculations to show that Fillmore may be elected by gettiug the final determination of the contest into the House of Representatives, and wo fear that notwithstanding cur cautions to the oontrary there are nincompoops among his readers who will fool away their money in bets on his heretofore so invariably prophetio judgment In order to save their moneys for a9 many of them as wa can, we append hereto the calcu lation of the Journal of Commerce in the premises which strikes us as being correct to tho letter, except in the cases of New liatnp* ?hire and Vermont. We now confidently ex pect that New Hampshire will vote for Bu chanan and Breckinridge, and also look for the vote of Connecticut in the same way, though not with the same certainty up? u our mind. Information recently received from New Hampshire leads us to the conclusion above expressed. If that State fails to give a majority for the Democratic electoral ticket* our leading friends there are the moat com. pletely deceived men we ever know in their positions in politics: A Presidential Calcplation.?In the fou:teen Slates first mentioned iu the aonexed schedule, elections hava been held within the last three months, which have resulted, politi cally. as bc-.e recorded. True it does not certainly follow that they will vote the same way at the Presidential election, though there is not ono of them which we think is less like ly to go Democratic at the Presidential olec tion than it was at the State election.

General Vaibridge ? V?o are in receipt of a letter fr^m cur ancient friend, Gen. W*l briJge, of New York city, wherein he denies with much seal our recent allegation that he had failed to advocate the election of Bu chananin his speeches of the present canvass, delivered prior to the late Pennsylvania and Ii.di.ina State elections, 'the information on which we based that allegation was derived from come exchange paper, which, we are glad thus to learn, has done Gen. W . gross in justice. It pair.ed us more than wo can ex press to believe it to be true, as wo did for the time being, for we know few men indeed who owe mure tban our f:iend Walbridgo does to the Democratic party. However much we may be personally attached to a friend, in gratitude to tho Democratic party in such a contest as tho present is a sin that we cannot overlook. Wo cbuerluiiy make the amendn to the Oenerfcl lor giving ear to that allega tion and ask hiiu to hold tho Fremont party respoi;stL.e f?r our mistake. 'Ibey claimed him luu<il> at this p .int, as being with them in sympathies, ai.d pointed to the fact of his iutiu*a*e business connections with Fremont as furnishing the ground for his ailegod p. lit ical o/iMPge We know well that at such a timi m the present it is necetstry that all wh. claim the tuppcrl oi the Demooracy should be in all their relations clear of *us j.ioion <?( identification with tho party of Fre mont, tho most dangerous organisation to the tuturo of the country so far known to its bit>? tory. lljwever much we may bo attaohed to our friend, therefore wo were not sorry to leAiU that tlio Dem joratio convention for hit Congressional district had postponed his claims until the dca'.h of Fre mont ism, soon to occur, will enable him to stand a canvass in a posi tion in which n j men can cast a sbndow upon the entire integrity of his course as a public man. We b arn that another convention has been ?ailed in his (tho third) district, with a view to harmonise the difficulty there. Wo rejoice to hear it, and trust that the memory of what Its Democracy havo already dono for him, as well as Ins truo patriotism and public spirit for which wo have lor so many years given him credit, trill induce him to tako ono caro that no personal interests of his own Lo per mitted to distract its counsels in a crisis like tho present The Boston Congressional Election In view of the fact that tho Democracy have ap parently no earthly hope of fleeting their can didate for Congress from th? Boston, Mass , distnet, it appears to us next to madness on their part that they fail promptly to unite on tie Hon. Win. Apple ton, as against Anson ? than whom no other man is mora th ^ ^noxious to every man who cherishes e principles for which the Democratic party are now Ooniendiug from Maine to Washington territory?for never before were they united in support of a common and single set of prin C |lts Wo toek ucuulou to say a tew day3 since that no other member of the United Mates House of Representatives had etcr been more serviceable in bis sphere chan Mr A 1 his is a fact kuowu to all who know the do ttils o; the history of the House of lleprtsrn titivee of the United Stdtes, and it challenges ooatradietion. Surety the eteetfcm of we ether geatleman oould be more fortunate for the pablie interest. His capacious mind is better stored with the peculiar class of commercial information requisite to enable one to legis late properly on purely commercial subjects than that of any other gentleman who has been in the House in the course of the last decade, while as a legislator he has on nearly every occasion carefully refrained from being g overned by any political bias W hen in Con gress he possessed great influence, because all his fellow members of all parties confided in the entire integrity of his every view of every subject upon which it was his duty to legis late , and all in the haM looked up to him and his opinions on subjects with which he pro fessed familiarity with, we may not inappro priately write, veneration. How the Demo crats of the Boston district can hesitate to vote for him with the ehoice narrowed down be tween him and Anson Burlingame, is past us to divine. So, we shall be surprised indeed to learn of Burlingame's re-election, if it be. as we believe it to be, as at present informed, in the power of the Democracy of Boiton to defeat him?Burlingame?by voting for such a man as Wm. Appieton. Kansas Lies.?The reader who reoollecti the statement of the truth concerning the character of the armed expedition into Kan. ?as lately stopped by Co). Cooke will compre hend the mendacity of the lies coined to keep up the Kansas-affairs excitement at the North on perusing the following brief extraetfrom the Kansas correspondent of the New York Tribune " A wagon loaded with tho plunder of tho emigrant train adorns the camp of the United States troops close to this place Present Pierce ought to send for it It would eclipse the glories of (Jrevtown. The Federal authori ties are true ' Buchaneer* ' I have gathered a few more particulars of the outrage. While tho search of the wwgons, trunks and boxes was going it was raining, aud women and children were compelled to get out of tho wagons and stand in the rain So repulsive was the duty of searching that Col. Cooke had to detail all the men engaged for the duty himself. Not one of the other officers would have any thing to do with so disrepu table and lawless a proceeding A letter was drawn up by the other officers (1 understand Major Sedgwick, Capt Sackett with all the other officers under Col Cooke,) denouncing the a^t : declaring that under the command of each or either of them, such an outrnge would not have been performed, and only re sulted from the misfortune of such officors a.s the person now in command (Col Cooke) be ing In tho United States army. This docu ment was presented to the emigrants as the opinion ot the other officers, but was not signed. It exonerates many gallant itiieers from tho guilt of this outrage, and also proves that 4 Satau knows his own,' and employs them accordingly." Never were a band of marauders better treated than these samo under Kldridge, Per ry and Pomeroy, though never did men in their situation less deserve to be kindly treated by the authorities into whose hands they fall. Kvery account of their capture from tho pens of the officers of the United States army under Col. Cooke gives ths lie direct to every statement in the extract above quoted. We had supposed that the extent to which the Kansas correspondents of the New York tribune, hmet, and livening Po.xt have previously carried the art of newspepor lying for political effect unequalled by any similar achievement of any ege or cliino But as exemplified in this last achievement it goes vory far ahoad of anything else, even from Kansas, that the world had previously seen Mufcoe R M Qarnoit.?This gentleman, the Democratic nominee for Congress in tho Accomac District of Virginia, stands a fair chance of election, we rejoice to be able t" say, notwithstanding the heavy majority by which it (the district) went for Flournoy ? mere than 700. liis canvass has been an ex traordinary one indeed. Karely have as many so able speeches been delivered in a Congres sional canvass in this country as in his, for his competitor is one of the first men intellectu ally among tho opposition in Virginia. As wo predicted long since, Mr. Uamett has demon strated in thia canvass that there are in him tlie elements for makiug one of tho first public men of tho country at this era We regard his triumph as being worth more to the Democracy, North, South, East and West, un der the circumstances, than aught else we wot of except tho election of Buchanan and Breckinridge. Funny Timet Ahead :-lf the Now York tribune and Times on one side of Fremont's supporters, and the lluuld on the other, bh^w signs of hostility to each other already, as they do, they are destined to exhibit Wonder ful things to the reading world after Tuesday next, when they will coinmonce quarreling with unexampled fury over the bono they all failed to secure?Fremont's election. What they used to say about each other ere they uni ed on Fremont will ba but ohild's play to what they will say of each other when Fre mont's cause no longer exibts to keep them from tearing out each other's entrails.

An attack of fever, lasting several days, go ag gravated his already feeble condition as to give rise probably to the uneasiness on the part of his numerous friends, which it is hoped that this statement will serve materially to allay. POLITICAL ITEMS Tho Friend, a Quaker journal published in Philadelphia, in its. issue of Saturday last, says :?" The State elections on the 14th inst. in Pennsylvania and Indiana, having result ed favorably for the 'Democratic' party, indi cate the probable election, next month, of James Buchanan to the Presidency." The Louisville Journal, the leading Fill more organ of the South, gives up Kentucky and Tennessee to Buchanan, but of courfe with a grimace. It says : '' We were about to nay that the rights of the people of Ken tucky are as fearfully endangered as if for eign foes were in our midst; but the truth is. foreign foes are in our midst?thousands of foreign foes, imported and bribed and guided by Kentucky's own traitors " We hold that honesty in politics, as in every thing else, is the best policy We do not be lieve falsehood is stronger than truth Hor ace dree ley.

Colonel Forney sent here on Saturday the most pressing message for more money tor the eleotion of next Tuesday in Pennsylvania W ithout large sums at once (he says) the State is lost to Buchanan, and possibly (he adds) it is lost at any rato The Buchaneers are greatly alarmed at the prospect before them. This batch of unmitigated falsehoods, re peated in three different places in the Tribune ?>f Tuesday, is a fair illustration of Greeley's honesty.
