Whoever reads Mr CliDgman's speech will fini that there are blows to give as well Mto receive lo regard to the slave trade and rtflt the judgment of the civilixrd world msy jet be proncunsfd against the white slaveiy of British policy with even more unanimity than against the African slave trade." The lnte'hgtncir s*y< 0f the new coinage bill; # V j^here seem? to have been an unnecessary panic amongst the people in regard to tte effect of the new coinage bill before Congress and speculators will find a pans? in their prc *reaf Jf the House stou!d concur, ar doabtle e ?"

Businee* Congre?3 -Les? tVan fcar weeks of life is left for tbe present Congress Tet the mass of the b?;ine?s of tbe session re mams undisposed cf That is. of the business that cannot be left undone without greatly embarrassing the operations of the Govern ment. Tet we do not really perceive a dispo ?itiou on the part of the House to "buckle right down" to the work. However, the evil of procrastination iu their chamber, growing cut cf politics for the mo?t part, is no new ac quaintance of ours, for wc have witnessed its il-'-sfects for years and years and years. 0* t*n, too, hava we suggested the remedies Vu: remove all desks frtm the body of the hill> prohibit the reading cf newspapers there, or the delivery of speeches not germain to the ?abject legitimately before the body. Place desks behind the Speaker's chair to w.Vch members may retire who desire to write, and ?till be within instant rail when a rote is about to be cast. Fewer political Fpeeches will then be made, and no one will be called n n vote on any question amid eonfution worse eonf ucded Sooner or later the House will be compelled to resort to some such re* fcr*s, for the evil.- makirg them necessary in* crease with each succeeding session. Pennsylvania^ -Gen Wm F. Packer, of Pennsylvania, is at the National, in thi? e ty. During tbe late national canvass he was upon the stump a!mos? daily, nr.d exerted an ir flu. ence over the popular mind second to that of no other in the ' niun- Wh^n in Penn?y:va nia during the canvass, though it was net our gocd fortune to he?r him, we were forcibly sluck with the moral fuice of hi? oratory, a? manifested in the impress it left on his fellow citizens wherever he was heard. All -eemed to remember hi* points and to respect his ad ?i:e, as thoogh it was the testimony of a man in whero all confided, given from the witrem stand. It i? net wotderful, therefore, that he appear to be looked to by the ma,a of the Democracy cf the state a* their party e candi date for Governor in the election to come rff there next fall. ^ ^ e also find Ellis B Schnabel, E9j , at the National.-the champion of the Democratic cause in "the infected district _Wi!mot> before whom David, and othern of that ilk fled so ingloriously fr m every *turop Cabinet Xakicg is inst a> earnestly prose cuted at this hcur in Wa?hington as when Mr Butbanan was hare.

Tbe loes of the two lake boats, San Carlos and Virgin has deprived hi in of tbe mobility which for tome time had bean W? chief resource. The Island Ometepe, in tfie lake, fifteen miles from Rivas, and the coast of Chontale* opposite, some fifty miles distant, have supplied him with provisions ; but now, with his boats and schooner lost, the strong north-east gales which prevail on the lake at the olose of the rainy season and render its navigation impracticable to bungos, will ab? sofbtely confine him to Rivas He can no longer procure fcod to supply the men whom fever and the enemy have still left him We see no alternative for bim but to capitulate or starve." A Naval General Court of Inquiry.?Sev eral petitions having been filed at the Navy Department asking for a Court of Inquiry, under the recent act of Congress, the Secre tary of the Navy, with a view to granting a hearing at the earliest practicable day, has appointed a Court, to meet in Washington on the 20th instant. This Court is composed of Commcdore E. A. F. Lavalette, Commodore S. II. Stringham, and Captain W. J. McCluney. Tbe Attorney General is of opinion, as we understand, that, under the law there may be a plurality of Courts in session at the same time. Mr. Dobbin, however, as we learn, does not deem it necessary to appoint more than one at this tirce. The Fair ?The Mechanics' Institute Fair, to be opened in this city to visitors oo 'he 2J proximo, is to be the greatest exhibition of the kind ever seen in this immediate region. Tbe preparations made are on the grandest and most elaborate scale, and the concourse of stringers who are expected to attend the in auguration will attract hither, as exhibitors, men of scientiSe and mechanical eminence from all sections of the Union This i3 as it should be We know that our fellow citizens of the District of Columbia will vie with each other tc welcome them and to make 'heir par ticipition in the grand display as pleasaut at d profitab'e eventually, as possible. The Burning of tbo Theatrj-We are rery sure that our fellow cititen* sympathise deeply with Messrs Kunkel, Floyd <! For(', the young and enterprising managers of our lit? Natioi a' Theatre, in their misfortune, by which they were deprived of a considerble portion of the earnings of their many years of hard labor No other theatrical managers have so secured the confidence and good will of this community, who havo known them long?first as the managers of their former musical troupe, the Kcnkel Serer.aders. Their loss is nearly fifteen thousand dollars, on which, we hear, they had no insurance The readers will find in the Star's loial columns full particulars of the catastrophe. The Weather ?The spring weather that has been upon us f<>r forty-eight hours, though promotive of a flood of slosh in most of the thoroughfares of Washington, is mos. delight ful over bead. All the gay people in the city were out in full fdather yesterday afternoon, giving Pennsylvania avenue a ravishing ap pearance truly We question whether Broad way looks mere brilliant on such an occasion, the proportion of holiday-attired people here being much larger than any where else in this country, owing to the fact that Washing ton is m winter to the country at large, what Saratoga Newport, Cape May and the White Sjlphur are in cummer. The Politician*.?The departure of Mr. Buchanan has served as the signal for tbe de parture of hundreds of the noted politicians from a distance who some bow or other acci dentally happened to visit Washington imme diately after it was known over the country that he had wended his way hither. We no tice now, on our daily rounds, that the ma?s of them appear to have disappeared rs sud. denl/ acd as mysteriously as they ertainly arrived am ng us. </ Jlew Englanders ? Amorg the strainers of note aorv here, we notice Messrs B. F. Lutler and Fisfcer Ames liildretb, of Lcwel', Mas ., leading Democrat'; and also the merry face of Paul R Oe^rge. Esq., of New Hampshire: all of whom are well kcown to tbe politicians of tbe country They come, we take it for grant ed, to see how the land lies in the matter of the new administration. From Nebraska ? Omaha N. T., Jan. 20, 1557. Editor i*tar: The bill for the removal of the Capital of the Territory passed both Hr nte* of the Legislature last week, but to J%V wa? vetoed hy the Governoi Fr*m all appearances they will be unable to pass ?t by tw<--third vot^; consequently this question which agitated 'he fears of the peo ple o{ Omaha s-< wonderfully, is now obsolete. Tbe Country ? The roads leading into Washington from all direetioss are just now in worse condition than we ever before saw them. The immensity of the snow bank*, the rapidi ty of the thaw, acd the ;udden exit of the frost from the ground, together make them almost everywhere impassable. Dismissed ?Lieut. Charles E. Fleming, U S.

">5 Adjourned CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS I* the Sew ate, jf sterday, after we went to press, the bill for the relief of Mrs Mary Ree side was taken up on motion of Mr Bigler. The question being on the pending motion to reconsider the vote by which the said bill had beea amended, it was debated at length by Messrs. Bieler, Brodhead, Adams, Benia rain, Bell, of New Hampshire, llale, Toombs, Pugh, Noaree, Stuart, Weller, Butler and others; when The question was taken by Teas and nays on striking out the amendments, and decided by large majorities on each.

Tha bill for the relief of Jedediah Lathrop, late navy agent at Washington city, was then passed ; and the bill for the relief of Charles Newbold'a heirs was rejected by a rote of 21 to 14. Shortly afterwards tbey adjourned. Note ? In the course of the morning hour, Mr. Brown presented a memorial, very numer ously signed bv resident citizens, merchants, and others of Washington, ?ettirg forth that the paved carriage-w*y of Pennsylvania ave nue, from the Capital to the Treasury build ing, is greatly out of repair, and that now and annually hereafter a large expenditure of money will be neecssnry to keep it in tolera ble condition Tbey cay there is a radical de fect in the plan of the pavement, which tbe eiperisnee of our own principal cities and those of Europe has long sinee condemned from sanitary a* well a? p^enniary ronjidera lions rrd ask Congress for an appropriation for the repavement of the same upon tbe plan known as the " small block" or ' Folginn pavement," which, thoy ?ay. has been fully proved tc begeod, permanont, economical, and cleanly. # Also from persons employed to attend the ?'draw'* of the Potoma* bridge, dating the inadequacy of the pay to tho services per formed. and asking an increase of their ocm pensation. Mr. Pearce presented a petition from farm ers. gardener*, and other propertv holders residing in Montgomery county. Maryland, setting forth that in approaching the roetropo lis with their produce tbey are compelled to use the Washington plank road for a distance of five miles from the Maryland line to the said city, subjected to the payment of heavy tolls within the District limit*, in addition to the tolls and taxes thoy hare to pay for the support of roads within their own State, and ask that Congress wi>l therefore afford them the same facilities they have extended to resi dents of Prince Genrge'scounty by making the District plank road free. 15 this House, a large cumber of pirate bills were duly passed.
