EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON C ITY: TCKIDAV Hevember (f At>VBBTIS>MK*TI IIOrLD ?* LEKT ?T T?? OWfB ?T TvnTi laM, M . ?TMBwm t??t bat k*t afteak VVTIL Til MIST ?*?. 6P1R IT OF THE MORNING PRESS The butlligttirer, unJor the head of "Time's Soothing Influence*," I ublishes an interesting compilation of a portion of the legislative his tory of Johc Quincy Adam?, to show the bit ter philosophy of conciliation. The Union obtains appeals -citable for the last day of the recent "heated term'* in poli tic?. ^ WASHING TO N NE WS AND GOSSIP '^Hoteli in Washington.?The New York Herald, the no less infallible arbiter of good taste than of good morals and sound politics, having shown up its latest creation?George Law, as a public man?has turned its atten tion to rhowing up the hotels of W ashington oity, ell of which it pronounces, ex cathedra, detestable hotels; as though the fact that such is its judgment of them to-day, makes them so. Taough it is but fair to adopt its opiaion of the politicians whom it alone has warmed into brief notoriety?for who should know them through and through better than the author of their political being?we opine that its opinion of hotels in Washington is worth just as little as its views of the prospects of presidential candidates a few weeks ago, when it was pledging its reputation for the tri umph of Fremont by an overwhelming ma jority. Its conductor, who writes in so sweep ing terms against every hotel in Washington, has not ventured to trust his ears within the bounds of the District of Columbia for a year past; evidently in the fear that they would be called for as a forfeit by ?omo one of the many gentlemen here, he has taken occasion to black guard in that time as violently as he black guaided tho hotels of W ashington on Sunday morning last 80 he cannot have written from personal experience in this connection.^He complains that their charges are higher than those of New York. This is untrue. We have beside us the bill recently paid by a gentleman, who, with his wife, occupied a chamber and parlor at a Broadway (New York) hotel, a few weeks since. It amouats to $12 per day for their board and the use of the parlor. No hotel in Washington charges such high price*. What the Herald says about the attendance of the servants at the Wash ington hotels is also false. None are better drilled, or more civil and accommodating aLy where in'the country. Nor are more substan* tial comforts to be enjoyed in the hotels of any other city in this country ; though, we admit, the immense caravanseras of New York and one or two other American commercial empo riums are conducted with a closer attention to p trade?to fuss and feathers?if the reader pleasss. The Herald seems to be after mali- 1 eioudy inducing some one to lose a fortune in building an additional huge hotel iu this city; asserting, as it does, that many keepers of such establishments here have in late years retired with large fortunes. We should like to knew who they are. Our information on that bead is directly the reverse of all this. If any single one has done so, wc should like to kaow who he 1* The truth is, the hotels of Washington are, like all the rest in this country, quite a* well kept as the business they transact will war rant: and we are very sure that they give quite as general satisfaction to their patrons as any others in the land. No man of brains expects a landlord to set before his one or two hundred guests as varied or as elaborately prepared bills of fare as he would certvinly present them if they numbered daily from five hundred to one thousand, as at some of the hotels in New York. The editor who makes that fact the ground-work for such sweeping charges against the Washington hotels, is evidently unfit to form sensible opin ions in such matUrs, as the conductor of the Herald ha* so recently found himself to be in politics. The Orange and Alexandria Railroad Com. pany.?The proceedings of the recent annual meeting of the stockholders of this company, held in Alexandria, demonstrate that it is not only one of the best-managed public works in the Union, but one the stock of which bids fair very soon to be as profitable as any other railroad stock in the country, not excepting the consolidated New York Central and the Jersey Monopoly's roads. In less than two years its net work of connections will give it the comman-l of the travel and freight of an immense .-cope (breadth) of country, stretch ing longitudinally from tide water on the At. laatic ci ast to the Mississippi; and in two years more perhaps to Mobile in one directior, to New Orleans in another, to St. Louis and the western confines of Missouri in yet another direetion, and again to Chicago and Dubuque in another. From the Mississippi at Memphis to tide water on the Potomac, it will be essen tially and abcolutely without a riv?:l as the eastern terminus of travel and trade that is destined to astonish all the railroad operators in the land ; for few of them indeed arc as yet aware of the dormant facilities for making a prcfltable railroad business which exist in the fertile, healthful and beautiful and mild (as to climate) regions of Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and Arkansas, which are to became tributary to it (the Orange and Al exandria railroad> and to it alone as the east ern outlet of their travel and transportation of all description. Besides being much the shortest rcute through which the business of the regions to which we refer can possibly reach the Atlantic coast, its climatie advar tages and advantages of grade and through connection will render it the most certain, speedy, agreeable and the cheapest long line of railway on the North American continent It can be run profitably with agiven amour t of freight and passenger traffic at less rates per mile than any other iu the Union, or our experience of twelve years in connection with the construction of such works has not added to cur capacity to judge correctly upon such points. In ten years after its connections through to the Mississippi shall have been opened, it will have doubled the value of every acre of land fn m Lynchburg to Memphis laying within fifty miles?north and scath?of iU It cation. 7 here is no telling what will be the extent of its beneficial effects on the busi ness of Alexandria, Virginia, through which its hundreds of through passengers will pass daily and its, perhaps, millions of tons of freight for the far West mutt also | a fair proportion of which will necessarily be pur ehtsrd in that ancient Burg ; because, while that is the nearest point for " shipping" by the rail, thera are many descriptions of mer ehandise that can be sold there at a* low a figure as in any other place in the United State#. Those who will take the trouble to scan the map closely and to study the statis tic? and capacities of the regions of which wa write above, will soon comprehend that we art not a dreamer on this Fuhject. A Clergyman 8hrieking (Lying) for Free dom ?The Boston Font exposes, with a mas ter hand, the systematic lying of the freedom shriekers whenever writing aught from Kansas likely to see the light. It quotes the follow iDg extract from a letter publiahed in the Boa ton Atla* (freedom ahrieker) from an abolition clergyman named Nute: Law rence. Kar.. Oct 13, 1856. Dear Sir : The oold weather keeps off thus far, and we hope it will until the arrival of the clothing. Every day we hear of new caaes of destitution. Yesterday, I found two families without flour, and with hardly a sin {;le article of groceries. One of them living n a sod cabin, without a floor?a family of six Eersons; nearly, if not quite, every member aa been sick with the intermittent fever, but are bow recovered, and hard at work to pre pare for the winter. I relieved their moft pressing wants from the small fund in my hands, and wish I could furnish them wiih lumber enough to build a comfortable shelter. Having looked on that pioture, the reader will please look on this,?another letter writ ten by the same Reverend Nute dated (Octo ber 15th) but twe days subsequent to the oher. It proves that whatever may be the con dition cf his neighbors, the "Reverend" Nute is making a good thing of his residence in Kansas. Men of sense will comprehend that it stamps with falsehood all he says in the other letter concerning the state of the Terri tory. Thus, to a relative (who furnished the Pott with his letter for publication) he wrote on the 15th ult , aa follows : "We like Kansas more than ever. This summer and fall, thus far, the weather has been more pleasant than it waa l?6t year. I have harvested about eight acres of corn, and have an acre of potatoes of the best kind, and good crop to dig. I have between ten and twelve acres of wheat sown, and it comes up finely; 25 tons of hay cut and stacked, 3 cows 2 horses, 3 yoke of No. 1 oxen. 7 hogs, 111* hens, Ac., Ac I am now adding a large room to our house on the claim, and getting ready to lathe and plaster the front room. Our teouse in town will be finished in a few weeks, if this weather holds on I think I shall rent it for a year, or until I have pre empted the claim, as I can get over 5200 a year tor it, in advance every month." The Post adds: " Mr. Nute also admits in this letter to his ralative that 4 there are many false reports and some gross and foolish exaggerations min gled with the truth' about Kansas affaiis?he might have added, 1 and this mingling will con tinue until after the 4th of November.' " All Over!?Only think on't, reader ! Ni> oae now care* to read abuse of anybody' Huzza for election day that in coming round ha? thus brought about the " era of good feeling," as it were. The Lord only knows how long it will continue. We pray that it may never depart; but praycr3 such as this addressed to tho politicians of all par ties will provo, we fear, not more efficacious than singing psalms to dead horses. _We in tend to v'ct a good example, and will hereafter be as amiable to our talented neighbor as though we had not had occasion to chide him gently new and then in the course of the late protracted campaign, commencing with the rise and progress of Know Nothingism and ending only with its death at the hands of the Democracy to come eff at sundown precisely I to-day; when it will draw its last breath at I the basis of an important political organisa | tion. Nicaragua.?All well-informed men at this point regard the situation ct Walker in Nica ragua as being most imminently critical No credit whatever appears to be given by them to his accounts and those cf his followers of his late engagements. On the contrary, the letter published in the New York Trtbuiir from Virgin Bay, representing that he was repulsed in his attack on Messaya. and re turned to Granada to find that all his stores, arms, and indeed even to hiseverv paper had fallen int ? the hands of his enemies who hid completely sacked his stronghold, (iranada. and succeeded in retreating unmolested with all their plunder. Thus he ia conceived to have been stripped of all his resources. The news by the next arrival from that quarter will be looked for with great interest. Death of Lewis Plitt, Esq.-The follow ing pathetic letter reached us this morning. Ita news will te received here by a large cir cle with deep sorrow, for its subject waa be loved in Washington : Philadelphia, Nov. 3, 1856 It may be of interest to some of your Wash ington readers to know that Lewis Plitt, for several years a clerk under Col. Forney in the House of Representatives, ia dead. He died on Saturday night, after a protracted illness, aud was buried this afternoon. Poor Lew ' a few days ago he was confident he would be well enough to go out to vote for Buchanan, whose election he was looking forward to with high hopes But the sunrise which will greet Buchanan as President elect will light up poor Plitt's fresh made grave. He was a man of gfcod heart and generous impulses, and I know of but few men who will be more sincerely lamented within their own personal circle than Plitt Bound for Kargas.?Extract from n letter to the editor, dated 44 In camp on the bank of tho Des Moines River, Iowa, Oot. 23, 1856 :" 44 We have aeen, in the five days from Bur lington, no leas than six or eight hundred men, all armed, bound for Kansas.

By the arrival of the steamship Vigo at New York, and Canadian it Quebec, we have Liv erpool dates to the 21st of October. Id Eagland, it is reported that Lord Pal merston was preparing a new reform bill. Lord Russell threatens a similar measure England and France have suspended diplo matic relations with Naples. No hostilities have yet taken place A terrible accident occurred at London re cently While the Rev. Mr. Spurgeon, tbe famous Biptist preacher, was preaching at Concert Hall, a false alarm of fire was raided, creating a stampede, in which several persors were trampled to death. The statement that France had summoned Austria to evacuate the principalities has not bean credited. The Cologne Gazette says that all the pow ers excepting the United States Lave assented to an original protocol respectirg the sound dues question. A ministerial crisis and financial difficulties exist at Constantinople. The ministerial crisis in Denmark has re suited in the re-installation of the old ministry. The commercial affairs of France are a.*, suming a more favorable aspect Persia solicits the mediation of France in her difficulties with England. The Paris Conference of Diplomatists of the several Powers re-assembles on the 15th. In Spain. Narvaex was replacing the present officials with old conservatives. In Naples, the authorities were redoubling their preparations f->r defeuce By the Vigo, we learn that the Paris con ference was to re-assemble on the 15th inst A Uermin paper states that the King . f Naples has urged the cabinets of St Peter - burg, Vienna and Berlin to conclude in fav<r of the integrity of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies, a treaty analagous to that guaranty ing the integrity of the Ottoman Empire. The latest advices state that preparations for the defence of Naples are redoubled. No modification of the ministry had taken place, and all were anxiously looking for the allied fleets The French squadron was anchored in the road of Toulon ready to depart. Four Sar dinian ships were also in readiness. An English steamer ariived at Ajaccio on I the 12th with orders for Admiral Dands to sail I on the 13th. Accordingly, two steam frigatej put to sea next morning and the remainder I of the squadron sailed in the evening. THE MARKETS. I Liverpool.
