The Intetliggrxfr continues ita publication vf the debate on naval reform. The Optra Another large and very fashionable audi ence last night greeted the Pyne and Harrison troupe. The piece, " The Crown Diamonds," went off admirably. The rendition of its every Mig and concerted movement (musical) was rewarded with thundering applause Louisa Pyne appeared to greater advantage In it than ever before in Washington. Mr Guilmette received a fair share of the tavor of the audi ence, proving himself an accomplished artist. He aetad and sang the part of Reboldo with fine effect. Mr HarrisoD, who always comes up to the requirements c-f his position, was np plauded from his eutranoe until the curtain fall at tbe end of the opera's representation.

Ibis very admirable report of a curious "ease has created a great sensa'.ion through - oat the South, where it first appeared, and is also beginning to stir the bile of the pseudo philanthropists of the Nortb, against whom this unpretending littTe work is raising a very hearty laugh.

There was published in London, in 17?2. '*lhe American Gazetteer," Ac, in which is published tbe following account of Bristol, K I.: 44 A town and county in New England.

Uur reporting " spirit" baa detailed to as a full account of the ''high time" the Jackson Democratic Association had on Monday night, orer the question of the election of a commit tee to join committee* of other Demoeratie clubs in Washington in arranging for a grand metropolitan celebration of their recent vic tory. Accusations of personal disappointment were launched at the beads of those who ob jected to the order of things determined on by the Association's authorities, who, in turn, eanght thunder and lightning from the other side. One word brought on another; until, immediately after they adjourned, there wat the beginning of a pretty general fight on (not over) the platform. Champions of the rival interests rushed at each other with in teuse emphasis, after a little endearing con versation (in rather aloud tone.) and coat tails and hats, if not hair, are supposed to have suffered some. The more moderate, however, interfered in time to prevent a finale of black ened eyes and bloody noses If " the Uarmoneous" of our city commence in this way to celebrate their victory, we fear that, like the Kilkenny cat#, by the time the period f.<r the ocr templnted grand metropoli tan oelebrulion comes around. th?y will have devoured each other so that there will not be sufficient left of ibem to make a very imposing show .. ? Exceeding Kind In It - The New York Tt/ae> has fairly installed itself already into the position ot chaperon ta the incoming ad ministration Through one of its corps, who ha* been to Wheatland, it is oracularly ex plaining what Mr. Buchanan will do after 4th March next, and what he will not do; besides layicg down the law explanatory of what he ought by all meaas to do, and what he should by n> means do. Taking into considerAticn the ardor <f tbe support that the Turns ard iti coterie gave Mr. iiucbanau up to the 4th inst., it was kindly considerate in it, indeed, to wait until the 10th inst. before taking pos session of him "body and breeches." With the Timrs he is now just about the wisest, greatest, most patriotic and independent man ever eleeUd to tLe Presidency, whatever he may have been in its eatioiatiou up to the moment that event transpired. Well, wo are thankful for ita tardy rendition of justice to the action of the Democratic National Con vention in making Mr. Uucbanan tbe stand ard-bearer of tbe Democratic party in tbe late contest We shall file away its correspon dent s asseverations in this particular connec. tion, to be quoted in J'uturo in answer to what it is easy to forsee, it will surely say of Mr' liuchanan's administration not long hence. In the meanwhile the New York Herald is rapidly becoming a serious rival to the Tim*3 for the post of dry nurse in expectancy to the new administration. Monday's Herald con tained a long argument, the English of whlcb is that the Herald only secured the Presidency for Mr. Buchanan, having early insisted on his nomination at Cincinnati and had the kind* est. possible feelings for him per se through' ut the canvass, notwithstanding its devotion to that great and good statesman, John C Fre mont, of beef contract fame, llow the new administration can fail to prosper with two such solicitous friends at its elbow is past us to imagine Yet we fancy that already we see a Ilea skipping about in the ear of both Raymond and Bennett Getting their Foot in It ?The committee of management of tbe New York Academy ot Ma?ic are in a muss with the renowned Max Maretieck, late the musical director or ern presario of their establishment. It seems that Max, who is justly famed for bus ness shrewd ness, politely suggested that it was unfair and exceedingly foolish to make him accord to the stockholders of the house tbe best seats at half prices As that was an attack on the privi lege of their " set," they voted his advice tbe height of audacity; and finding tbe Ku?siaa baron (La Urange'a husband) anxious on any terms to reintroduce to tbe New York public, his wife a new prima donna, they leased to him the opera house, fur the performance of opera without a conductor It is said that he has agreed to pay for his privileges a hand some advance on the lent paid by Max, and not to question the immunity and immaculate ness of tbe committee's set. It can hardly fail to turn out that opota in .New York without a conductor will be as worthless as "French wilhout a Master." Those who devote time to either under such circumstances will find it utterly thrown away. Italian musieal artists aie a tribe or class almost as much unlike tbe rest of the good people in this quisica! world of rurs as the Gipsies, being quite as unmanagable. Max, alone of empreearios on this side of tbe bar ring pond, his managed them successfully. I nder all others those who havo dabbled in opera beuse stocks in New York have burned their pockets adlv There is no earthly reason to bope that the new scheme rf the ambitious committee of management of the Academy ol Music will fail to drain the pock ets r,f Tuch of tfaoij principals as may not have very deep ones, ere well through with their present mass with the redoubtable Max. P. S.?Yesterday afternoon's New York pi pers bring us graphic accounts of the scene (or ar**a) in the opera-house on tbe night before, wnen tbe experiment of tbe coinmittec was es sayed to be earned out. The audience bel lowod, screeched, screamed, stamped and shouted for Max, so long and so much louder than tbe kettle drums beat their share of the opening stiaim ol the overture, as that the committee had to knock uuder, and Max was triumphantly re-instated, amid tbe bravo* of tin excited multitude Tbe affair?, "as exceedij^iy French. fPreaching.?A correspondent ?* the of C'omm*m say. : e# this ,Iat^hT!!^?tta,I' or ',4TIOCently intend clmv kad n kk,'f1UP uf by the liberty-loving man. ft was the . ..4g., rt. ?,* foorLMo,": ' -Ik' tod, thiok and bl* with Tk."E3 'TP1*' Tbe Neology of Congr tgationaliata baa gradually leading from the unseen to the from the spiritual to the temporal.

" lied Fremont won the race, more than one political preacher would have undoubt edly sought for hia reward of office while through the whole course of the administra tion, there would hare been a whisper in tb? publio ear,?? reminder of atamp sermon*, worse than the mere open grasp at authority by trowed spoil sharers. " For four years at least, these mischievous tendencies are consigned to that great army of spirifa "who mutter and peep" inert and harmless But let the lesson remain The Fremont movement has been big with the identical element which in the whole history of the world has been the "little leaven''work ing and rising into all the evila of " Churoh and State." The Charleston Mercury says of the recent election and the present aspect of the sectional queation : "Mr Buchanan, we believe, is elected Preiident, and we doubt not that he will do all that the powsrs of hia high office permit him to aaauage the sectional strife, through which he baa made his way to a distinction earned by long and honorable public services But he cannot extinguish this fire through which he has waded It still burns undi minished ; and the mere fact that it has almost succeeded in casting its lurid tiames upon the temple of our common confederacy, ia sufficient to show ua that wo have no aafety in this UnionT We may ltager in it a few years long er, but al ways at our peril The hope of peace, of good understanding, has all paased away. Henceforth we are, necessarily, two peoples? the North and the South The Democratic party have presented to the country a North ern man, no way identified with peouliar Southern interests; a man who eould raise against himself no prejudices on the part of the North ; and yet it has depended upon the al muit unanimous vote vf the South, whether this man, great in talents, famous by a long life of noble statesmanship, irreproachable in morals and manners, should be elected to the Presidency over an adventurer, without e* perionce in politic?, with a doubtful reputation even as au explorer, and a still inure doubtful one ms a man ; whose sole qualification, &r a candidate, was that be was willing to embody the sentiment of the hostility of the North to the South What conclusion can we draw from this result, eicept that we are on the verge either of revolution or destruction ' For ourselves, we prefer the former " lemolishing au Idol ?All the world te member with what apparent ardor the New York Tribumt has for some years past wor shipped Benton, putting all its faith in him and apparently in the great *ij unger cn>y But Eenton, at the heel of the race if net b. ? fore, demonstrated tl.e fineeri'y of his pro fessions m a supporter of Buch^tar, by jour naying to St. Louis not only to vote foi him, but to preface that act by a speccb it which he retrained from abusing the paitj supporting the nominee of the Cincinnati Con venti >n and the platform on which he (Mr Buchanan) stands, lie also took occa.-iot slightly to condemn the violence of the He publican party sentiment on the slavery que." tion Whereupon, the 'I'ribun0 pitches inli old Tom like a thousand of brick. Never d"< eastern heathen more violently and com pletely demolish the idol that had failed t< carry out the object of his prayers, than dee the Tribune, demolish old Tom. It calls bin every conceivablo ugly name it can Uy it pen to, and contends that ho has always leei a deceitful old wretch secretly devoted t > th< dominion of the "slave power,while mereH trying to cheat the " friends of freedom'' 1^ professing abolition proclivities. Itcongratu lates the latter on the fact that Benton canno here-elected to the Senate. The editor oon eludes his " first-rate notice" of the redoubt able Colonel and bis very last St Louis speech in the following aoft words : " The Missouri prohibition to stand repealet and abolished, and the whole West open t< slavery ; Kansas to be yielded to the slave holders, to be followed in due time by l7tah New Mexico, Nebraska, and so forth ; and ii return for the Border-Ruffian courtesies 0 the slaveholders, Pennsylvania and New Yuri to re enact their so journment laws !

Four persons voted for Fremont at Purcell's Store precinct, in Loudoun county, Ya. The New York Independent (Beecher's pa per) attributes tbo defeat of Fremont to the Fillmore men in Philadelphia. It says : The indications are that Mr. Buchanan is elected. The result is due mainly, if not solely, to 1,200 men in the city of Philadelphia, who persisted in throwing away their votes upon Mr. Fillmore, and thus secured the electoral vote of Pennsylvania to Mr Buchanan. The Providence Journal says the proposi tion to double the pay of the members of the General Assembly of Rhode Island was most emphatically rejected at the election on Tues day. "The people seem to think that one dollar a day is ample compensation for the servioes rendered by their legislators." Who else can they hire so cheap as that / A com mon laborer gets $1.50 to S2 per diy. The students at Princeton college, N. J , Thursday night, marched around the town in procession, with transparencies, torches, drums, fifes, etc , four young men bearing a black coffin, beading the procession, and another, with black bonnet and dress, riding upon a little Canadian stallion, representing Fremont's widow, the now disconsolate Jessie After a genoral round of the town, a funeral oration was delivered, and the coffin burned Nice young blackguards thesu ?En In regard to the health of Senator Sumner, the editor of the Baltimore American says: "Three months ago we travelled in the s uiie boat with Mr. Sumner to Cape May, noticed him to be good platter man at the dinner table, and saw him afterwards for several hours sitting in an exposed situation though the wind was blowing keenly, talking wUJj great animation and apparently without fatigue.
