SPIRIT OF THE MOKPHNG PHtlSS Tbe inl*lhgtnter publishes a communica tion upon the advantages of building up a southern poit.ifrom Mr. George P. Elliott, in which those of Poit Royal harbor, South Caro lina, are elaborately set forth. The Union argues elaborately to show that England and France J are deliberately vio lated the late trealy of Pari? SPICT CcNTFoV ICR9I F* GROWING OCT OF Nicaragua* Affairs.?The New fork Her ald contains a lorg correspondence between General- Goicouria and General alKer, of Nicaragua. ft appears that Gen. Goioouria received a mission to England for the purpose of furthering certain financial and other pro ject* for Gen Walker. First?To convince the English and French Governments that General Walker's political views were directed to the establishment of an independent con federation or military colony in the South, intended to act as a counterpoise and a check to Northern interest and Northern aggros ?ions. Secondly?To obtain financial aid in the shape of loans bated upon thifl undei etaodiog, as also up ,n the promise of the es tablishment of such a tariff in Nicaragua as would amount to a virtual recognition of the principles of free trade. Although not stated in ao many words, it is clear from the context of these letters that such wen tho purposes cf the English mission. When Walker dccreed the re-eotabluhment of slavery in Nicaragua, Goicouria declined proceeding with his mls 11,d, feeling confident that no aid could be acquired from Eagland in favor of Slavery The Utrald it Saturday has another batch of Nicaraguan correspondence, wherein the priacipal contributor replies indignantly and contemptuously to Goieuria Mr. Edmund Randolph also cuts in with a sharp note that tavort of pistols and coffee. Thus " I have only to remark further, tLat in this Transit business Don Domingo Goieuria is an intruder, with a dishonest and treacherous intent; and that, knowing the import of the language 1 use, 1 shall remain at the Wash ington ilotel, No. 1 Broadway, until 1 o'clock to-morrow, and It nger if it is the pleasure of Don Domingo Goicuria. " Edmund Kandoli h." Tha charge of dishonesty and treachery made by Mr. Randolph against Gen. Gouicou ria caused the latter to send to Mr Randolph a verbal challenge to mortal eoaibat, which Randolph refused to rcceive, and required his communication to be made in writing. Gen. Goicouria immediately sent a written chal lenge, whioh was promptly accepted, and a hostile meeting is expected t<> take p'aoe to day between tbe parties py From Taylor A Maury we have the October iscue of the Edinburgh Review.

The Power of the Fre?? ?"an ll1* bird, the old prorerb says, that soils its own nest A very striking illustration of this wise saw ia afforded by certain of oar ootempora ries, who are trying to prove by tbe result of the laat election that tbe influence of the press is all a chimera, and ita pretended power a humbug Tbe Richmond Examiner sajs : ?4 The triumph of the Democratic Party dis 4solves into thin air the popular dalusion of 1 the influence of the press of the city of New ' Y<>rk upon tbe publio sentiment even of tbe 4 metropolis in which they are printed and pu*? ? hsbed Tbe Herald, Tribune and Times, ? with a combined circulation of heaven knows 4 how many hundreds of thousands, honestly 4 parading their prosperity during the can ' vaas, laughed at the idea of the Democratic 4 Party contending against such a formidable ? alliance. 44 In tbe city of New York, against this 4 formiidablo array of editorial talent and en ' ergy, the Democracy triumphed by an over 4 whelming majority, electing Congressmen ? and innumerable candidates for the local 4 offices " " Wo are quite willing to take the result of last election aa a test of tbe power of tbe Prea*" in influencing public opinion. The heaviest vote? cast for Fremont were just in those die tricts where the largest number of Republican journals were circulated. New England, New York. Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and even Indi ana and Pennsylvania, furnish tbe best evi dence that could possibly be given of tbo effi cacy of the Pre?s in enlighteniog tho minds of the people "The blundering inference drawn by the Examiner and kindred prints, grows out of the mistake they fall into of supposing that the circulation and influence of New York journals are limited, like their own, by the boundaries of the towns in which they are published " The New York Times, from which we quote above, misstates, if it does not misapprehend the point made by the Richmond Examiner, which does not dispute the power of the press, but that of bold, reckless, wholesale and ma licious falsehoods Or, in other word?, tho power of the quintuple alliance of tho fivo New York city dailies that combined on Fre mont in the late election, thcugh upon nearly every other public qucsiicn they previously stood as wide asunder as the poles. Their canvas was ono continued series of misstate ments of the truth?an unbroken stream of lies* (speaking in old-feshioned English) that was swollen into a perfect torrent and cataract ot' falsehood ere the journals and orators identi fied with tbe eamo eau^e had done mouthing over tho various wonders they told, in vain to effect the result of the campaign. The 1'tmrt admits the entire want of influ ence ol the quintuple newspaper alliance in their own city, where they circulate an aggre gate of perhaps six hundred thousand bheets per week; anl as an offset claims the result of the eleotion in notoriously abolition quarters of tbe I'nion as having been brought about by them. This claim Is but a poor dodge, in deed. There, they were but the fly on tho whatd?but pacderers to tbe prevailing mad ness of the vicinage Wherever that madneji is tot constitutional with the people, which is the case in southern Illin-iis, Indiana ond i'ennsyivania, the influence of their false hoods s*? adrjitly told, proved as slight as in New York city. The truth i' they eirn ply pandered to tbe malice, passions and pre judices of the self-sufficient, over-righteous and erased portion of the I'nion, and now claim that they are the authors of all the mis chief of abolitionism that has been brewing twice as long as either of them have been in I existence' The RiciiUiviid miner is correct. In I rtgiou# ot" tho Lnion where the people are not I constitutionally self sufficient, over-righteous, I and monomaniacs ly whole communities, tho I avalanche ol falsehoods of this quintuple ul I liance of newspapers cf immense circulation I bad no mere effect on the popular mind, than I ahi.-tliiig | sjIu! tunes wi.uld biivo bad on I dead horses. Tha Kact?aa Delegate a Seat ?lho New J York Tribune appeals t> its party in the House of Representative* to reject General I Whitfieldonce more, on tho ground that, hav I ing onco decided that tho Legislature ot the I Territory under who^e authority the election I for a Delegate took place was invalid, tha re I turn of W at the ^ubseiiueiit election held uu I der tbe same Territorial authority is au insult I to it, the House ^uch is the drift of the Tribune's argument. I if, indeed, it has any point whatever. Tho I Hou<m?, however, will not gratify the Tribute's I conductors. The opponents of its views with I reference to Kansas affairs have, siuce Whit I field was unjustly deprived of his seat, gained I (by fi ling vacancies) ono member in Virginia, I three ia Uliuois, and one in Missouri Ue I ?iJo, in.re or less ot the Northern Know-Noth ing member; who voted with the Republicans I to oust \V bitfield, will now surely vote lor bin f I there bein,; no question with reference to tbe I entire fairness with which tbe last election I wa' conducted ; and no ono of them being supporters of the right of tho abolitionist* of I the ierritory to get up a government or to I order elections to be held there in deSance ol I or revolution against the authority of tho I i nited States; in furtherance of which more I or leas of them refused to participate in the last I action of the Douse oa tbe subject We do not I beheve that abolk*onisiu in the House can pos I sibly bring upeven nine tenthsof itsown prop er force next month to vote Whitfield out of tbo I seat to which he has recently been ro elected. ; A Diicovery.?The New York Times hea I found out, through an occasional correspond ed from this city, that Governor Wise did not I visit "\\ heatiar.d recently on a raid after a place ia the in coming Cabinet?that having been the drift of most of the articles tbe Timet and other New York journals which assume I to be the, custodians of the President elect I have published on tho subject. [ V\ e congratulate the Time.? on its good far tune in at length finding out that Uov Wise really does not want a cabinet place, and that the distinguished Democrat* whom it, tbe I brut J et al , represented as paddling of late I between Wheatland and other points, hav< I B?-t one of them been near the President elect I i-ince tho 4th inst. This is a good beginning, I it will tutu learu something worth knowing ? I connection with the now Chief Magistrate. In the mt-antrhile, however, it will nevei do to forego ita daily lecture to that distin guished gentleman upon bis duty, if he woult make an administration to satisfy bis |*>litica enemies rather than hi* friends-that beinj the upshot, ot what the Ttmrtr and ita allie have of late oeen publishing ou the subject Ihe American Party in tho House ? Wi are anticipating that in ti*) course of the ses ?ion, nine-te ntba ef thoee members who honest ly supported Mr. Fillmore in the recent Preei dential election, will merge their political oi party individuality in tLfctof the Democratic party Upon tbe great queetion of the daj they proles* lo stand in line with the De iwucracy both North u&d South Orso nearlj ?o, as that they can tqjich uiyre c^nsietemlj act with the Democracy upon it, than with the Republican party. Besides, the hatred of the managing men of the Kepoblican party against Mr. Fillmore personally, is evidently shared by the Republican members generally, who also extend their left-handed affection to moat of Mr. Fillmore's Congressioaal sap porters. W hile the Democrats look on them simply a? gentlemen possessed with un unfor tunate and inadmissible political Kink, and pity them in all kindness, the Republicans hate them with intense bitterness, because most of them (the Republicans) being also in tense haters of the Catholics and the foreign born, conceire that the Fillmoreitts were ul true to the main point of their legitimate faith in rejecting abolitionism in the late election Memben in Washington.?We hear, to day, that the Hon Messrs. Mace, of Indiana, Trafton, of Mapsaohusetts, Dean, of Connecti cut, Purviance, of Pennsylvania, and Evans, of Texas, all of the House of Representatives, have arrived in Washington The lion Mr. Walker, of Alabama, who was here yesterday, has gone over to New Yoik fur a few days So also has the lion Mr. Clingman Tho lion.

No doubt Colonel Fremont would do credit to the Empire State; but, as he is not a eitizen of New York, the project is impractioable If he is elected to the Senate at all, it must be by California, in which State be belongs " Speaking of Sam's losses, or supposed losses, in the late contest, the Georgia Federal I nion says : " The enemy's loss amounts to nothing. They staked nothing, expected nothing, an l g< t nothing Nothing added to nothing is nothing Nothing taken from notfaing leaves nothing. Blessed are they that expect nothing, for they will not be disappointed. Sam a case stands abont thus : No North, no South, no Fast, no West; no honor, no office, no money, no sym patby, no nothing!" The Bangor Democrat puts it to the fusion ista in this way : *' The defeat of Fremont is most decisive ana overwhelming, lie is minus sixty-eight iu the electoral vote, and there is a majority < f at least out million against him in the pop uiar vote of the country, lie nas failed to re ceive a majority of the votes of the people iu the free States, where we tbiuk be is in a mi nority of one hundred thousand And yot tho abolition papers talk of Mr Buchanan's eUction * by a meagre sectional vote,' and of the Democratic victory having 'no mora! power ' The fact is, Fremont is nowhere, being in n minority I u the number of states, in the electoral college?, In the popular vote of ail the States, and In the popular vote of the free States " Important from Mexico.?Advices from Vera Cruz to the 11th iustant stato that sow) fighting bad t-xken place at Puebla between the revolutionists and the Government troops On tno night of the 28th ult , the Government troopa commenced hostilities by taking u;> the requisite positions to impede the flight of tho " pronunciados " On the following day operations were rc suined against the town with great vigor Tho rebels, who it is said are much disheartened, had abandoned a large portion of the city, and had concentrated on the most central points Complete disorder prevailed amongst them, and they had been even fighting among them selves.

A few days sincc, some workmen, in digging on the bank of the Kcnguikea? itream, about two miles from Bangor, Mo , turned out a deposit of eilvcr coin, amounting to about forty dollars in valuo.

Ilia first .step towards a seat, anfor tunately, influenced souiewhat by the andden motion of the coach, brought his right foot in contact with a lady's dress; and as, with a hasty expression, he strove to extricate it from the embraces of the hoop, he was suddenly plunged forward and in a twinkling found his left foot in the same uuf<*rtunate connection with a hoop on the other side.

The rational? of this verdict is, that these parties, being of mature year?, induced the boy to commit the murder, but that a greater punishment than that of murder in the second degree could not go against them.
