SPIRIT OP THE MORNING PRESS. The Inttlliggncsr is devoted tJ news to-day. The Union urges an inorease of the ray of the officers of the Nary of the United States. Washington news and gossip. The President Elect reached this city at fire o'clock yesterday afternoon, accompanied by his niece, Miss Lane, and other members of his family, and, also, Qoy. Porter, Wn.B Fondney, Eskridge Lane, (his nephew,) and Wm. Carpenter, Esq , and, also, the Hon. John C. Breckinridge, the Vice-President elect, and wife. Information that thia distin guished party might be looked for in that train having been received by the U. 8. Marshal of the District of Columbh, rather than in the one to arrive two or three hours later, he was met at the Washington depot with an open barouche and four, in which,unaccompanied, except by his immediate family, ho drove to his quarters at the National hotel. We pre sume that this becoming and characteristic simplicity, and unostentatious entrance into Washington was planned by himself Ilia guard of honor, the Lancaster Fencibles, and other friends who flocked round him, booked for Washington, wo take it for granted ware duly esoortod from Baltimore to these diggins by the guards of honor that left Washington at an early hour yestorday morning, especially to bsar Ilis Excellency company over the tedious rente from Baltimero here. P. P. C. Triplett, Esq-?This gentleman writes us the following leltor, which will be found of interest to all who have duly noted the details of the proceedings of the House in which he was involved : Washington, March 2 1857. Sib : I am not indifferent to the opinion of the meanest individual, much loss to that of those composing the rrescnt ilruse, who, with edifying unanimity, have voted themselves to be honorable men." I therefore wish to convince some of them of tbo irjastice done me by their vote on Saturday, excelling mo, a* a reporter, from the floor In the first place, I was not a reporter at all. I bnd hold each a position the last session, which I did not exercise; but this session I neither ap flied for nor received the place. But, grant had been ; what was my offonce 7 There is no rule inhibiting a reporter from attending to his own business before Congress It was not my complicity with the parties arraigned, fer no one has blamed me seriously for my forced compliance with the exactions univer sally known to be made of all who seek the passage cf bills involving a valuable consider ation Was it the exprc?sion of my opinion that extensive corruption prevails in Congress ? Then there is cot an intelligent citisen in W asbington who does not share my offence Of course, no one will understand me as im pugning the integrity of every member, or of a majority of the members, but eimply as asserting that the corruptionuts had the bal mneo of woicer on closely contested cases. As to tne attacks made upon my testimony, It is dignifying them too mnch when I stoop to expose them. More than a month elapsed after it was given, before the committee closed its sittings; yet not a man was found hero, where I have lived so long, or elsewhere, who would, under oath, breathe a suspicion against me. The rule of honesty as well as of law is, that while a witness stands unlm peached he shall be regarded as unimpeach able. No man is safe from reck lets aspersions cast upon him by advocates laboring in a cause which cannot be defended by more legitimate means. But even the basest man is not su?pected of a crime to which" no interest leads him. My interest was clearly against making any reve lation in the case. I coold expect no glory from it, and I knew it would deteat all chance of my success. I could be biased by no per sonal feelings, for it is not pretended there was any unkinuiess between those gentlemen and myself. In August, 1354, my book was de feated in the Bouse. It was defeated in the Senate in March, 1855. Yet no one has heard of my aspersing a single member who voted against it Is it credit-le I would commerce the work of defamation by swearing falsely against those who, in their own defence, de clared they were anxious to vote for it? One gentleman, indeed, urges against me t^at I voluntarily went before the committee a eecond time to attack Dr. Welch. That gen tleman will surely pardon my ignorance for supposing that, if a witness should discover he had misstated or omitted any material fact, it was his duty to correct his error. But I do not in this deserve his censure, ner the praise of those as badly instructed as myself My testimony was taken down in ebort hand ; to be sure that it was correctly done I thought proper to read it after it was rcducod to wri ting. I had misapprehended a question, and I so stated In making the necessary correc tion I w is so unfortunate gs to incur the charge of malice on the cne hand, and on the other ot stating a vague impression not amounting to anything positive. If this bo the way in which vindictive witnesses accom plish their work I had mistaken the modus. Mr Uilbart, in his sworn defenco, admitted the truth of every word I had uttered as of my own knowledge. It appears, therefore, that he was in the conspiracy against himself. .J *?y be left in doubt, the rttuw of thia trial has shown that any olo ud fortunate en-, ugh to know of Congressional corruption mu? go to jail for contumacy, en ter a ??? mt rtcordo for safety, or suffer in character for the truth. Very respectfully, Ac., P. W. C. TaiPLETT. P. S -Sinoe writing the above I have seen the proceedings I eomplaia of. The assertion of my vicUtirg my word as a reporter is en tirely untrue I agreed to press no claims for others, this was neither a claim for my s?lf, nor for any one else There is a law for bidding M C s and all Oovernment employes from attendirg to claims: yet the members voted for their increased compensation, and elerks are annually electioneering for ad ditional pay. As your printer waits for this copy I cannot further pursue the snbject Disappointed ?Our fellow-citizens appoint ed by the City Councils, the Jackson Associa tion and the District Military authorities to reoeiva the President elect, met with a great disappoint cent yesterday. The two former journeyed all the way to Baltimore to do the thing in first rate style. That is, to escort him thence into Washington, lie, however, man aged his matters so as to pass through Balti more "on the wing," aa it were, a few houre earlier than was expected. But three of the members Councils' ocmu.ittee and two of the Association, managed to obtain an inkling of be unexpected celerity tf the movements, and thus to enj y the honor of a ride home on the tain bearing him. We can well '?"?g'nt the "pkatiaka" of tfce peel en learning whea they repaired to the depot shortly before 5pm, that the gam* had flown southward just two hoart before ! The City Authorities and President Pierce. It compliance with the resolution of the mu nicipal authorities of thi* city, the Mayor, accompanied by the Board of Aldermen, the Common Council, and a large coaoouree of eitisens, waited upon the President at 12 o'clock. The Major addreaeed him in an ap propriate apeeob, to which the President re plied with the moat felicitous remarks such an ccoasion ever oalled forth His manner oonfiraed the purport of his words, and his rcice attested the sinoeritj of the emotion with which he took official leave of authorities and oitisens by whoa he has been so much beloved, honored and respected, and whose in terests he has done so mneh to promote. No retiriog President ever elicited more re .gret from the oommunitj of Washington; no one of bis predeoeseors has been easier of ac oesa, more kind in courtesy, more attentive to the bereaved and suffering among us, more devoted to all the interests of the city. The deep feeling, so evident and general, with which his parting words were listened to, re flected most faithfully the emotions of regret which agitated the hearts of his audience, whose best wishes for his health and happi. noss will follow his footsteps whithersoever they tend. When the President entered th j Kast room, where the visitors and audience assembled, the Mayor of the oity addressed him as follows : Mr. Pr$*id*nt: I have tbe honor of Intrc duoiog to you tbe Boards of Aldermen and Common Council, and other members of our city government, together with many of my fellow eitisens who have no official oonnectioo with me. We come to acknowledge our grate ful appreciation of the official kindness you have evinced towards our city in the many reeommendations you have made to the Na tional Legislature in our behalf?recommen dations wiiicb fully show that you rccocnise, to a just extent, the obligation of the nation to foster the capital by aiding its people to make it what its founders designed it to be,? a great and a beautiful metropolis, worthy of a great and a powerful nation. And, sir, we have not only to express onr high sen-e of our obligations to you officially, but wo have also to acknowledge the kindness which has marked your social intercourse with u* and our constituents, and to assuro you that the community with whom you havo sojourn ed for tho last four year*, feel that in your de parture they will rather loso one of tneir own most choiished citiians, than ono who has hid only official residence amongst them. We need not then say that we grieve at the sepa ration, and that our farewell is not only full of official respect but also of personal esteem | and bflection, and we sincerely hopo that in your retirement you may enjoy tbe harvest of peaceful happiness, which must proceed from tho consciousness of a faithful discharge tf your public duties. In reply, the President spoke substantially as follows : Mr Mayor: I receive with unaffected gratification thio demonstration of sentiments of good will toward myself on the part of the city authorities and poople of Washington. About one-half of the years of my m in hood have been passed here and the experience of each year has only served to enhance my ap preciation of the admirable qualities which characterise the permanent population of the Distriot. No man can notice the quiet of a Sabbath in this city, and the evidences on all hands of its sacred observance, without boing impressed by the conviction that he is among a people remarkable for their intelligence, order, probity, and high moral worth. Here 1 have shared largely in a generous hospital ity, have made many valued acquaintances, and formed friendships which I trust may be as lasting ss my life. Under the ciroumstances it would be strange indeed if I could regard with anything but lively interest whatever is calculated to pro mote your happiness, and advance your sub stantial prosperity. Here among your resident citisens, every section of our common country is represented; and they are fortunately ha bitually free from the influences of discord or alienation. Hero, the love of this blessed Union and th* spirit of toleration, which ever animated the founder of the city, and the Father of his Country have never grown cold As th* seat of Government and centre of the Federal political power, you wiil al ways enjoy great and peculiar advantage* Added to these, a genial, salubrious climate, and scenery of rare beauty, mast make the District of Columbia, at no distant day, the seat of a great city, pre-eminently distin guished for arts, taste, science, and reficc ?*pt. I enjoy in anticipation tbo carcer which I see before you There are certain great improvements, the completion of which I earnestly desired to witness dur:ng my offic;al term. I trust they are delayed?not abandoned. Should a wise Providence pormit me to visit you here after, I hope to find gushing fountains from the <*reat Falls of the Potomac, ererywhere in your city springing up and sparkliug in the sunlight, and representing, in their native pc r.ty and abundance, your moral health aid social prosperity. I desire to express, for Mrs Pier-e and my. e*lf, the assurance of our regret at parting wi:h friends who have established claims for our grateful remembrance, which we shall never osas* to remember. The Throng.?Gracious goodness ! how the ^good folks are pouring into Washington just now. At this rate, Dan Rice will havo to let out accommodations for sleepers in the stalls of bis four "comic mules," as well as on the benches of th* capacious amphitheatro, as advertised. There were at least eight hun dred guests cn the books of Willards' last night and nearly as many at Browns'. Of course many of them are billetted without the portals of these establishments The Wil lards dined quite seven hundred yesterday without the slightest rush, crash, or inconve nience to any one. The way in which their several dinners were served made it apparent that they can comfortably accommodate per haps twice as many on such an occasion. Tho Kirk wood, too, is overflowing after a similar fashion. Yet everything goes on there like clock work as usual; th*lr dinners being as recherche as thouzh tbe Ifoufe contained only the usual number of guests. Ths Tezans aod President Pierce ?The 2d of March being the anniversary of tbo De claration of the Independence of Texas, the citisens cf that State who happened to be in Wonhington, some thirty or forty in number, *"sembled at Kirkwood's Hotel, and proceeded in a body to the Executive mansion, wher* J were most cordially reeeived by the resident. fn behalf of the Texans, Msj. W. a but felicitous address, ?lMtr^fili n aract*me i by eloquenoe which th Pr"?"' ^ .n4 com ' rcipl" "><?

Th. .dir.,, 0{ ^ touching ud truly ,ho ? dent replied with eriduil .motion, reclproo. ting the sentiments of kindness, and avowing his oontinued devotion to th* principles which had governed his administration, and so strong ly commended by the people of Texas. The interview is described as on* of unusual inter and mutually pleasing to th* President and his visitors. The Great Ball on tbe night of the fourth, will evidently b* aUend*d by perhsps thre* or foai tim*s a* many persons as *v*r befor* attended the usual inauguration festival. As She magnificent preparation* made are for pei| hips tea time* as many, all who attend may rely upon comfort. The sapper table extendi the whole length of the building, and u so ar ranged as that the guest* will be amply sup plied with all they ean desire without the p^uibility of greasing or otherwise soiling a coat or dress. There will be in attendance at lea^t five hundrod fresh, rosy and artless country lasses, coming by rail and steamer from within a circle of 100 miles of Washing ton, who will reach here in the course of the ?f the 4th. A sight of their lustrous eyes and joyous oountenanoes alone, will be worth the priee of the ticket?f 10, to the man of ine taste. ?? The Hostilities in Oregon and Washing ton Territories, Ac.?The following interest* ing letter, from a distinguished Army officer, has just reaohed us : Bexicia Barracks, Cal , ) Peb. 4, 1857. f Editor of Star: Please publish the en oloaed, as it may serve to put matters right as to the absolute necessity of fighting or feed, ing the Indians of Washington and Oregon Territories they are rendered desperate; and the United States interests there are too para mount to neglect them. Intense oold and deep snows prevail'tn Ore gon and northern California; earthquakes and murders in southern California. In the latter region but little rain, less than usual. Cattle will perish in numbers this summer. The Mexicans and discontented natives are taking to the road in organised bands, and, being more numerous than c.11 other people, arej *2country very unsafe. Arms and $5,000 have been sent to Los Angeles by the Legislature, and the Un.ted States troops are in the field after the robber bands Large emigrations of miners and land hun ters are crossing the Colorado for the Gadsden purchase, and some of the parties are ooca eionslly murdered by the Mexicans and Apa ches. * Thank you for trying to help us offioers. ? * * [From the San Francisco Town Talk, Jan 30 ] OemgiiNkws-The pack train, consisting or 137 mules and horses, which took out sup plies to U 6. troops in the Bimcoe Valley, TS* ,n.tho snows in the canon, ooast side, while on its return to the Dalles The packers lived on mulo meat twelve days, and succeeded in reaching the Dalles on snow shoes.

If this be true in the caso of the Indians of Washington, we presume it is, or will be, also true in the case of the Oregon Indians If these orders arc obeyod now, while some seven or eight thousand Indians are hemmed in on Reserves, without winter supplies, and wilh several feet of snow upon tho ground, starvation must follow, and the Indian war rc-opened with terrible conse quences. The Beception ? At eight last night, the President elect received calls at his quarters at the National, and an immense orowd took occasion to shako him by the hand With tho exception of the public men who called on him, hi* visitors wero those prompted by cariosity or solicitude. On such an occnsion suffering as he must bo from the fatigue of his journey to-day all the way from Lancaster, fow others would trespass upon him ; the pub lic men only going to his apartments because thoy had legitimate business with him. The Students.?Among the 20,000 strangers who are now horo, are at least one hundred students of tho six hundred and fifty now at tending the Virginia University at Charlottes ville. A finer body of youth is rarely, in deed, to be seen, than this same one hundred students of the Virginia University. Missourians.?Tbere are a large number of stalwart Missourians now here. Among these gentlemen are Governor Trusten Polk, who is to take his seat as an United States Senator after the 4th inst., and Major Craige, Democratic member elect to the next United States Uouse of Representatives.
