In this connoction we may not inappropri ately repeat an anecdote related in a letter to a gentleman of Washington from his wife, on a visit I) her friends ia northern New York? as follows: On the Saturday night before th^j election at a prayer meeting she attended, the sinister proposed that each of the brethren present should " lead in prayer for bleeding Kansas ' Hi? first call was on a blunt old Democratic deacon who pitched uneeremone rusly into Reeder, Lane, political preaching, murder, arson and robbery under the pretence of fighting for freedom, as being the curses rf society and the country at this era, and wound up by beseeching the Throne of graca a d mercy for tbe triumph of Buchanan and Breo kin ridge, as the only means of restoring I la non-s!a veholding Slates to their senses and etaanehing tha real wounds of bleeding Kin Mi '' Ere he concluded he frightened half tae ooigre&a:ion by tbe earnest retien.cr.ee With which he " fought the devil with fire " Even the minister, who bad essayed to take a trick by thateort of management, was so com pletely nonplussed that he did not say Kansas *jjain white the prayer meeting continued.

The Pyne and Harrison Opera troupe again ashlered entire success last night in the " Bo hemian Girl." The houEe, a fine one, was composed of all the levers ot music in Wash ington embracing of course a large proportion of the fashion and beauty of the Federal me tropolis. Mr Gulllmette, as Count Arnheim, achieved another professional triumph. He has already eataM-#hed for himself a high reputation in deed among our opera goers. His songs are rendered with pathos, volume and artistic skill which not only captivate the ear and go direct, ly to the heart, but stand the test of the severest crltieism. Louisa Pyne, tbe life and soul of the piece last night, and Mr. Harrison, were never in better voioe, nor did they ever better satisfy an audience. To night " Lucia de Lammermoor" is to ba performed, for the benefit of Mr. Harrison. Elsewhere this standard opera never fails to draw crowded houses It is rep!ete with beautiful features, and if among us thero are any wbo have never heard it, we advise them by all means to attend to-night; for tney will *njoy a musical treat such as is rarely indeed to be erjryed in Wasbingtjn. It may be heard a thousand times with pleasure, and on this occasion will be put on the stage as success fully, doubtless, hs ever before in this couniry by an English Opera troupe.

We did oppose the nomination of James Buchanan earnestly and unceasingly until it was made over our opposition, and that of thousand? of others, who, like ouraelf, subsequently voted cheerfully for him. That's a way Democrats have, which is the secret of their almost in variable success, as a party. We nil feel at perfect liberty to struggle as manfully as we can ea h to sesure the nomination of our choice. A nomination having been made, however, we all wheel into line and work together in the common cau-o of our principle, like a band of brothers. Thus wc opposed Mr. Bu chanan's nomination as scal >u?ly as we sup ported him when nominated. We've a secret :for the oar of our dying neighbor. Had the ?Cincinnati Convention put up Auld Hornie Ji m elf, ai' hoofs and horns, on the platform adopt*], we should have supported him with quite a1 mu:h zeal and earnestues-1 as we mani* felted for Mr. Buchanan; for we do not know ! men. tut principles only, in our politics. Nine ty-nine in every hundred real Democrats would have done likowise under similar cir cumstances Hence the moral strougthuf the pemocratic party's discipline Our dying neighbor is horrified at the idea that we t'hould venture to show up in its true color* the seen* occurring after the meet ing of the Jackson Democratic Association on iMonday night last, and what is more horrible (in ite estimation) to stigmatize a-blackguards those Domocrats of Baltimore who, corrupted by an evil Know Nothing exami lc, retaliated the bu.ning of Reterdy Johnson in ifligy by paying a like left hand eamplimcnt to Mayor Hinks Therein is the eecret of our success ar.d the early and untimely t approaching) death of our dear neighbor- We have a way of speaking the truth out boldly with little thought ot where it may cut We cannot for the life of us see all perfection in our own side?no faults whatever? and we have the boldness and independent todcprecato wrong doing on the part of our friends a< freely as in the conduit ?-f our opponents.

In view of this fact tho extraordinary course, speeches andlet ersof John Minor Botts du ing the recent canvr**, aro worthy of rerrembrar.ee The National Intelligencer even wentiutol its w-7 to endorse his views a* eminently bold and wise, and their author as a states man after its own heart. The Herald's boba dilish praises cf Boils and bis ism were a mat ter of course, ?s they were rowing in the same boat Virginia, however, has ex[ ressed a very different appreciation cf his political sen timents; telling all the world in her vote upon them that she utterly repudiates his advice and opinions of things politic tl. Such a ma jority as she has given agninst tiem is rare indeed in her annals. The tru'his, he is a wrong-hea led and 3elf suffi :ient man, and where best known has least weight. Vide the vote of the city of Rich mond, wherein Know Nothiigum lost stun thing like a thousand votes, through tho splur ges of Botts. We ean sae nothing in the extrav agancies and ultrai=mr of Mr. Bott., ?ave and except s determination to create a sensation ut the North to make up for the entire los? cf hif former power cf making an impression at home.

"The Journal des Dcbat1 ha* a long ar ticle by Xtvier Raymond, on the refusal of the American (iovernujont to adopt and rccog niie the prir.ci{les in ,??jird to ti e r.ew mari time law its determined on at the Congress of Paris, unlets th? dcci ion or i-orclu ion ;is ro spects privateering be sotar exteuded that fcr the future trading vessels rhall alio be fecuro or protected against vessels of w.ir " When the Government of the United .States made this a condition or sine, </mi nun^ the Secretary cf .State. Mr Mar*y, remarked that otherwise the mere relinquid..meut cf wrfare by privateering wouii deprive the United States of their incst powerful means of defence on the ocean ; for tl e American war marinu was, comparatively f peaking, but subordinate. " This argument Xtvier Raymond attacks with exceedingly hollow grounds; so hollow and insignificant af. properly spejki.ig, not to be deservir g of a refutation Raymond thinks that, because the French privateeis in the French maritime wars were rever able to change tho decisions brought about by tho grea' battl'S on the oconn, the privateer war in general is of a very subordi nate importance.

But then the con test lasted seven years " Equally superficial as is the judgment of Raycmnd with regard to a war on land, are iiis views with respect to a war on the sea The privateer vessels are former merohant men ; the few vessels that in the very subor dinate mercantile marina of Franoe ara it for privateer service eaonot be bronght into com parison with those of England. " The American privateers will immediate ly oovar all seas, and will be immensely supe rior to all that England oan oppose to them. Hera all depends on the measure (the quan tum) A French war of or by privateers will never be a " popular war" (bellum yopiUi) on the saa; bat of an American privateer war, it is almost certain that it will assume that oharaotar. " We refer In that respect to srtioles pub lishei on this subject." Public Survcya in Utah Territory.?He turns of the surveys have been received at the Qeneral Land Office, up to the 30th of September last, from the Surveyor General at Salt Lake City, showiDg the progress which ha? been mnde since the opening of his office on the 27th of July, 1855. The evidences of the surveys, consisting of tra aoripts of field notes, of diagrams and township plats, exhibit the following result: The principal base line, on the parallel of 40? north latitude, passes through the city of Salt Lake, extends cast four miles to the Wahsatch mountains, and west thirty-six miles to the Salt Lake. The Salt Lake meridian, starting from a corner of the' Temple Block," or the initial point of survey in Utah, runs north through Cache valley eighty-four wiles to the proximity of the southern boundary of Oregon, and from the initial point it extends tuuth through the Jordan, Tintick, and Youab valley seventy two miles. From these principal lines of the public surveys the subdivisional surveys have been extended east and west of the meridian, and are limited by the Wahsatch mountains on the e*:t, Blue and Hansel valleys and Ce dar mountains on the west, embracing about one hundred and thirty townships and frac tional townships of suiveys, and borderirg Salt Lake and surrounding Utah Lake, the latter covering the area of about 80 000 acres, aod containing fresh water. Sensible Advice.?The Richmond Enquirer gives Mr. Buchanan sound and sensible advice inieed, with reference to the policy of his A J ministration upon the subject of the squabbles in " the party" in New York, which, from firit to last, gave the present Administration more annoyance than has been its lot to encounter frt.ni all other subjects and sources put to gether " Fortune ii? more propitious to Mr. Buch anan. Now York did nothing for him; and it is not incumbent upon him to do anjthir.^ for New York If there be within the State (as undoubtedly there i#) anything of public virtue and political wisdom which ho wouid enlist in the scrvioe of the country, he may sclc:t the m&n in contempt of the claims of the politicians. If he wculd have a Marcy to preside over the foreign relations of tho Gov eminent, or a Seymour to represent its inter ests abroad, or Dickinson, or Wood, orDix.or any other able and worthy citi/eo, to serve it in e<?me other function, he may attain his nb ject without the haaard of personal embar rassment. But Mr Buchanan must have it understood in the beginning of his Ad ministration-perhaps it would be well to proclaimin his Inaugural Address?that ho recoguizes no sort of obligation to the poli ticians of New York?that what tbey get they will receive out of mere favor, and that their broils and wrangles are never to be obtruded upon the consultations of the cabinet. If Mr Buchanan will adopt this prompt and peremp tory policy, he will save himself a world of vexation, and the country an infinity of scan dalous disputation. It was the wise saying of the w'sest of women, that " an ungovernable beast should be stinted ip its provender " Mr Buchanan may profit of the lesson, and by a judicious parsimony in the dispensation of patronage may reduce even the politicians of New York to something like decency and decorum in the pursuit of spoils " Major Foore'i Reception ? There was moie in the recent recaption of Major Poore by the good people of Boston at the conclusion of his feat of wheeling a barrel of pippins thirty-six miles than meets the eye of the casual ob server. Ten times as many of that city's den izens w*r? pr?mnt?n that -fccadion as at either the "reception" with which abolitionism there received Charles Summer not long >ince, or at th*t subsequently accorded to Ans.rn Burlin game. The English of the frolic Ip, thut It was neither more nor less than a burlesque of the Sumner and Burlingame receptions, being so iiffcnded by both parties?the Boston public jkzid tho recipient. The Major, who is a wag of the first water, poked fun at the sympathi zar.', too, in the finale of his speech, wherein he talked about fighting Burlingatr.e s battl:s i:i Washington for him; no other two men in Massachusetts bi-lng further apart politically than the two in question, the Major ab^mina ting abolitionism and the abolitionists, every mother's son of thorn, politically, with intenre emphasis. On the whole, bis burlosqne upon the Sumnsr and Burlingame receptions is one of tho best thir.gs of the kind that has ccme iff for years past A Know Nothing Iicket.?We have be fore vs a curious thing in the way of a Know Nothing electoral ticket voted in Montgomery c unty. Maryland, at the recent election. The cut it bears at its head represents a portrait of Jackson on the left hand^a huge hickory tree in the centre, and the harp of old Ireland on the righf hand?the whole cappcd by an arch bearing the inscription ot "Jackson and Lib erty '' It is worthy of note only because it illustrates capitally the fondness of Know Nothirgism for false pretences. 7 In Proposed New Post Office at Balti more, Md ?Wo hear that the Attorney Gen eral, on investigation, has decided that the title of the Fxchauge building property, ten dered to tha Government, is not sufficient to justify its purchase, as was intended for ? new pest office in Baltimore, Md.

In the Alta Californien we find the follow ing summary of the fortnight's news : Nothing has ocourred during the put two weeks calculated to impart any special interest to the news from this stato The exoitement consequent upon the action of the Vigilanco Committee has abated with the dissolution of that organization. In this city the Republicans and the Peo ple s party have united upon a local ticket, thereby rendering the election of the Reform candidates for our municipal offices well nigh certain. Thero is al*o bat little doubt that the legislative delegation from this district will consist of men pledged to vote for an amnesty act, and tocarry out generally the views of the party favorable to the Commitee attention is being paid to political affairs throughout the entire State, and how California will cast her vote on the Presiden tial question is a matter of entire doubt The reception of the Maine news has no doubt acted favorably on the Republican cause, and in spired its supporters with additional hope of success Still this does not appear to have impaired the confidence of either of the other parties in their ability to carry the State. Since the sailing of the last steamer, our State Agricultural Society have held their an nual fair.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE Georgetown, Nov. 14 1856 We have never known rnoh a general com plaint about strayed or suion cows as we have heard coming up from nearly every quarter this fall. Nearly every persoa who keeps cows has had more or less trouble of this description with thera. The general im pression is that there are parties in the Dis trict, and living contiguous to it who some times deal in stock of this kind, who are in the habit of driving them off from the com mons where they arc in the habit of grazing, either for the purpose of securing a reward, or trading them off in the country tor other cows which are afterwards sold in the market.

Circumstances have transpired since the notice of the absence of Mr John Claxton. in the Star of yesterday, which go to confirm the suspicion* of foul play by some person or per sons After the notice before mentioned, a gentleman's shawl was brought to Messrs.
