SPIRIT OP THE MORNING PRESS The Union publishes an interesting acoount of a complimentary visit from tha Missouri Den oct at a now in Washington to ex President Pierce; and eztraeta from the press of the eountry upon the inaugural, showing that it baa beaa graolously received tbrougboul the land. The Intelli?ineer is to-day devoted to news. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSJI' _ t Foaming at the Mouth!?Ibe tone of the Inaugural with reference to the slavery isnues Involved in the state of things la Kansas haa terribly ahocked the nervea of the Republican press. The Evtning Post especially, "takes on" OTer the President's frank doclaration that be regards tae si. v.h lder ooequal, as to I i0 rights iu the Territories, with the ncn-slave bolder. The truth is, the great labor <-f the Republican party has been to satUfy the Northern public mind that, under the Consti* tution. the bocth haa no guaranteed rights of ooe quality. Or, in other words, that there is an elasticity in the Constitution of the United States through which any purpose of the ma jority for the nonce, may be lawfully worked oat Tha P</st, under this view of the power of the General Government nnder the Consti tution, aims at present only to tiboo Southern men hereafter in all the Torritorias In Wit oonsin, the Republican party, under a similar style of reasoning, insists that it is constitu tional and legal to resist the effisers of the Geaeral Government in the execution of the Fugitive blave Law. In a portion of Penn sylvania thty go a step further, and cla m, practically, '.hrtugh their aot?, that it is legal aad consti' at onal to shoot dowa men engaged Ii reclaiming tfceir runaway slave prope:ty? ?i in the Gorsuch ease. In Massachusetts, aad, indeed, throughout all New England, western New York and the western reserve cf Ohio, under their new theory of the elasticity of law and constitution, it is held by the same party that it is right, jast and proper for the ?lava stealthily to murder his master and his family. When such things occur?and the ' practice has of late been fearfully increasicg under the itfluenee of such stimulation?all Republican abolition-dom works itself into a f?rcre of patriotic excitciuent, such as was wont to be exhibited throughout the land | thirty years ago only on the recurrence of the 4th of July. With such ideas of right and wrong, and law and cotstitution, so widely pervading tha northern popular mind, it is not wonderful that the Evening Post, the leading exponent of the party entertaining such views, foams at the month on realising that the Govern ment Is for f"ur years longer sarely to be in (he hands of a Chief Magijtrate who, instead of bowing to the supremacy of that sort of public opinion, has firmly planted himself on the policy of administering the government so far as slavery questions are concerned, np<>n principles disputed by none when the Consti tution waa formed, and handed down through every generation cf American stateamea, to be eavilled at only by men who seek to obtain power by playing upon popular prejudices aad tiyir>g the dargerous txperiment of con ducting our natioaal public affairs upon the principle that might makes right While we held to the soundness of the strict construction doc*Tine that the Supreme Court cf the United States, the creature of the agency of the sovereign partners in tbia confederacy, has no warrant in the Constipation to decide political questions between its creator and the creators of of its creator,?between the author of its own beiBg and the authors of that,?a dectrine which, if aniyraally admitted, would in a quarter of a cn'nry wipe out all the d:s tfneiive feature ?f the General Government as made by (ur fathers as matters are now tending, ws certainly entertain deep respect f r the opinions ef the pure, learned and pat riae functionaries composing that tribunal We realise bow difficult would bavo been the task to have stemmed the current of popular | opinio among the conservative ef the North, which would have followed that judgment in Ibe ea-o recently decided bad it been the re verse of what it :s ; though then it would have been directly in tLe teeth cf the views of the lramers cf tbe Constitution, (that is, with rcf eres-e to the General Government's rights, duties snd powers,) as expounded by nearly every political writer who participated in the work of its construction. But as happi!y, tha weight of the judgment to which we refer, announced only after mora Intense investigation and rtflacticn than waa ever before aee< rded by that august tribunal in eoming to an opinion, is with the right, it tmul be otherwise but that the entire coiB' eidenee between its views and three of PresL dent Buchanan's Inaugural in tfciaconnection even to the point that it is the duty of the General Government to protect the citiien of the Southern State in the enjoyment of bis slave property in the Territories of the United S-.ates, (for such is the legitimate oorollary cf the points of law laid dewn ^y the court,) will have dee weight on the minds of those in the North not directed towards violent revolu tion, whieh in its effects must work tenfold more disastrously throughout the North than at the South. Ihe North to a very consider* able extent lives and prospers by and through the workings cf the General Government, while the 8oatb receives not one dollar in five or perkape in ten, of the revenues ool leettd, Bti makes up perhaps ter fold its dae proportion <f the revenue of the "protected" interests -o keg as revolution proceeds silently and sarely for the benefit of the North, thet man must kaow little of h?tory who fan eies that ? p?r?y esn be permanently in the ascendant there devoted to the work of stem ning its pio&rers. The moral effect, 1 o?ev?r, of this opinion of tHa Supreme Com! will be instantly to' unite ?'I men ef all paities at the South in defence ?f all (heir rights under tfca Constitution, no loafer to be qaestioaad; tha few in that see I tion who had misgivings concerning them I being believers in the supreme jurisdiction of I that Court over suoh questions. Hereafter, I backed by this opinion, the front whiok the S inth will present ia Congrees and ever j where ?lie niuit, in turn, se counsel to the oonserva I five of the North that the silent rerolation re* I ferred to above moat be stopped if tha Union I ia to be preserved, aa that there ia now atrong I grounds to hope that the Democratic party of I the Conatitution will apeedilj resume its for I mer aacendenoj throughout the non-slave hoiding StatM. Those who really value the I Union hare no leu reaaon to thank President Buchanan for the boldness with which, on Wednesday last, he proclaimed in the face of all comers end goere true constitutional doc trines in the main, upon the subject of sla very, than the Supreme Court for giving so 1 emphatic an opinion that his constitutional views in this connection are sound. Gone!?Tha thousands on thousands whoeame to Washington last week only to witness the I Inauguration have departed, and with them I most of the opposition members of the Houso J and the large number of persons who spent I the winter in Washington engaged in looking I after their interests as involved in the legis latioa of Congress. Nevertheless, the hotels J and boarding-houses of the Federal metropolis I continue to be crowded, while eonsiderable I accessions to our floating population continue I to arrive by each succeeding public convey anos. Th?y are, of oourse, for the most part, j gentlemen who are absorbed with the solution of the spoils question?some seeking to hold on to their present places, and the reet, who out number them, perhaps tea to one, to oust I them. As the Administration is hardly warm I in its seat, of course it has not yet had time even to begin to take cognisance of the claims of either party to this very pretty controversy I as it now stands. Though the newspapers are I teeming with rumors from Washington on this I sabjec', we know enongh from experience I with such matters to pla:e no confl lenoe in any of them. Nor do we believe that when tho new Government comes to look over the field, and to rea!ii? that in making every ap pjintment it iray make, it will purely disap point at least one hundred, it will be in any vary considerable hurry to make tho clean sweep of all the office-holders so confidently predioted by the outs-treating the good, bad and ind ff -rent all alike. Having no interest whatever in this struggle, we sha'.l watch its prcgresi with care, so that as noteworthy fea tures in it may bo developed we shall be able promptly ta bring them to the notice of tha I Star's readers. In the meanwhile we adviae I *11?cffiie-holders and office-seekers?to watch and pray, and also to be sure to work like beaver?, or rather like moles ; for experience teaches that the most successful labors in this J connection are those performed in the dark. Blessed are they who expect little, for they I shall not ha disappointed! I Nebraska ?The following interesting letter tells the story of the legislative sweat through which the substantial interests of the inhabit I ants of newly settled regions in this country are eo sure to be put, ere their affairs settle djwn through the sifting of the men who as I p ro to influence and prominenoa among them I ??re ' Tom" can learn to know "Hick"from ? Harry." It convoys a pregnant lesson, 1 which, however, will hardly ever be profiled I by, if the experience of the past is to be relied I on : I .... ?*aha Cirr, N. T , Feb. 14, 1S57. I Editor Star : In accordance with a resolu tion adoptrd. the Legislature of Nebraska ad j >uraed tine di? at 10 o'clock laet evening, amid great confusion; forty days?tha time allotel them?having passed away. ? The session haa been an exeiting one on all aiiea. Little however of real intereat and good baa been effected. The programme aa arranged by the members south of the Platte, (who tor s;me reason, have become to all ap pearance, quite Jealous of Omaha.) was the re I moval of me oapital, division of tha county, I and consequent removal of tha county seat I The subject of banks likewise oocupied a large I portion of their minds, more especially, aa many of them were pecuniarily interested in I them For the accomplisment of these objects, | as was at first supposed, and afterwards open I ly acknowledged, a combination was formed, I consisting of the above mentioned members, a I majority of whom pledged themselves to vote tor ail the measures, with the assurance that I they should each be supported in bis pet mea I sures In this manner, the bill for the remo? val of the capital was parsed, it went to the governor, bv whom it was returned, aooompa nied by an able and powerfal statement of his objections They lacked but one of a two thirds vote A desperate sttempt was made to win over a member for Dakotah oouaty money in large sums were offered, but he was honorable, be would not swerve for what he considered his course of duty So the bill was laid ( aide Tho bill for tiie division of the county likewise came up snd passed. The bill was signed by Gov. Iiard, be understanding that it was the wish of the peopfe of tha new connty, and the county was named Sarpy, af ter the g eat western trapper Butthc county seat was not removed from Omaha Next came the sul ject of b*nk? Six bills Ware passed, I IT. . *ere v?to?d by the governor. And of the six, two wera passed over him and be already six banks, and with this addition we should have twelve, in j a population of not more than 20 000 The governor in bis message warned tbem of tha evils which must necessarily result in their fioo-j leg the Territory with paper, which had such poor credit far support. By some unfor tunate mistake our whole criminal code of | laws wss blotted out, and we are now without I any means of tunishing offences, exoept by j recurrence to the old oommon law, in which hanging is the penalty cf btrse stealing, Ac. These tur.jects alone mark the last session of the Nebraska Legislature, for besidesthls, lit tie was done Al< ut seventy new towns wera incorporated, somewhat in advance of settlement. Ferry charters In abundance were granted, and ter ri orial roads in every direction over the Ter ritory About a dosen universities were in corporated, one at almoat every town on the Missvurl river An act waa passed appointing [ the second Tuesday in December the day lor meeting hereafter. Several members of our Legislature, and also a large number of our cltisens, are leav ing for Washington, to be present at the inau guration of Hon. James Buchanan. Owing to their departure our city to-day, presents a very quiet appearance?a calm that will con tinue till the apring immigration pours in upon The weather has been quite severe up to within a day or two; but yesterday we nad the first rain since last fall, and to day the dark soil is visible in many places. Tbe city of Omaha has been incorporated by the Legislature, and the election for officers takes place on the first Monda/ in March. There are many rival candidates for Mayor. A grand concert and ball are to be given here n^xt week for the benefit of the Yonng Men s Library Association?an institution that is in a very flourishing condition and doing % great deal of good The entertainment prom ises to be tbe grandest affair of th?j season W. D D. ? Bemarkably Small Hale ?It is very ou. rlous to see hew small a hole a great man may get into when he is hard pushed. M Disraeli stated, in a speech in the lioase of Commons, that Prance bad made a treaty with Austria to sustain the latter in Jtalj. Lord Palmer, ?ton solemnly denied this, -eerting In the , anqaaliied and oteaaiva terms, that the i lUani ?u false, and a mm fabrication of Diirttli'i. Thereupon, pitt fun and was railed in the House of Commons gen ?rally, and all over England. Mr. DlsflmU stioks to hi a text, produoea the proofs, drives Lord Palmeraton to a tight place, util,nt length, the latter la compelled to admit that France haa made a convention with Austria, but not a treaty. Oh, no! not a treaty! Ii1nt that a beautiful apeoimenof a needle's eye for such a camel as Lord Palmerston to under* take to oreep through, in or^er to escape the thrusts of Mr. Disraeli? Tha Pending Trea iee ?It la understood that Mr. Forsyth's treaty with Mexico has not yet been submitted to tha Senate. The Dallas Clarendon Treaty has been again taken up and referred to the Foreign Affairs Committee, in executive session. If we are not greatly mistaken, all the signs assure us that, era the close of the p; asaat called session, that trea'y and tha Sandw :h Islands' Treaty will bo thoroughly cocsidired and disposed of. That is, unless there is truth in the rumor that President Buohanan has signified his desire that they should terminate the session on Sat? urday next, not having, at this time, nomina tions to send them saffioient to keep them to gather longer, and having no particular wish, we presume, that the treaties referred to above should be finally disposed of ere the Adminis tration may have time to mature Us policy with reference to them Tha Hon. Jefferson Davit ?The compli ment involved in the notion of the Senate yes terday, in selecting this distinguished gentle man to be the Chairman of their Military Af fairs Committee, immediately upen his re-en trance into the body, is the first act of its kind in the history of tho Senate of the United State*, and speaks volumes, indeed, with ref erence to the hold he has upon the respect and confidence of the living fathers of the Confed eracy, and as to their appreciation of tha ability and propriety with which he discharged all the duties devolved upon him as Secretary of War in the Pierce Administration. No more fitting rebuke to the disgusting and dis graceful warfare upon him by the opposition press throughout the last four years, could posaibly have been administered. The Committees.?We question whether the 8snate's committees were ever before so strong, intellectually, and so far as their legislative experience and oapacity are concerned A glance at the list, as published in the Star lo-day, will satisfy those well informed with reference to publio (legislative) affairs of this fact. The Democrats, according to custom, selected their own members thereof, and the Repnblicans?really the only other party in the chamber so far as numbers are concerned theirs. We are sure that, as made, these se lections all around will increase tha confi dence of the country in the Senate of the Unitod States, though of late years all well balanced minds have come to the conclusion that it is the main stay of the Constitution and Union. The Kaval Court of Inquiry weru delib erating until near noon to day, upon the tes timony in the cass of Lt Pennington, the first on their calendar When their doors were again opened, their decision was dispatched to the Department by the hands of the Judge Advocate, J. M. Carlisle, Esq , and the Court took a recess to await his return, ere taking up the next case?that of Lt R. W. Meade. The attendance of naval officers and others interested in their proceedings was larger to day than at any previous period sinoe the Court organised. > ? Appointment ?The Secretary of the Trear. ury has appointed Albert R. Hatch, of Portamouth. N. H., the disbursing agent, and John M. Weare, of the same place, superin. tendent of construction, for the new custom house, post office, and court-house, to bo erected in the city of Portsmouth, N. H. The Senate Printing ?It seems to be un derstood that the Senate will not at its present brief session eleot its printer for the new (this) Congress From sll we learn this now appears to be a fixed fact, beyond peradventuro. * Court of Claims ?Yesterday, the case of Stephen C. Hayden was argued by Mr Law renoe for the clafmant, and by the Solicitor for tha Government, and submitted. The court oalled the oases standing upon the general or law dooket, for argument on ques tions of law, as far as 190. The parties not being ready, these cases will not be called again this month.

PXB80MAL. .... Among the many Californians now in Washington we notice the names of Messrs. Chas. P. Duano, Wm. Mulligan, John Crow and J. R Mulloney. ....The Alexandria Gazette says that an eloquent and impressive tribute to the mem ory of the late David Humes was paid by the Rav J. T Johnston, roetor of St. Paul's Church, of that city, in his sermon on Sunday morning last. .... Lord Elleamere, a distinguished En glish peer, who ia known in New York, having * been Commissioner to our Crystal Palace, died on the 18th ult He bad considerable preton aiona to authorship, poetry included He in herited immenae estates from the Duke of Bridgewater, and was known auoce'sively as Lord Francis Leveson Gower, Lord Franois Kgerton, and Earl of Ellesmere. Two sons snd two daughters and his wife came with him, when he paid us a visit, and made many friends. .... New York upper-tendom is again in a hubbub; the current of Fifth avenue ii vio lently agitated; the old story ii again to be told ; the daughter of the great man has mar ried her father's favorite ooaebman. Mr. J. G. B. is a prominent importer of wines, and has a fine villa out of town, where he spends his fine weather months. Mr. J. G. B ha? an only daughter?" my charming Mary Ann"? just two-and-twenty Mr. J G. B. has also a coachman, red-faced, round-headed, and with the sweeteat brogue alive. He was very modest, too, for a Milesian ; hut "oh, wasn't he the divil for the girls V' Well, the sequel is soon told. " John" and " my Mary Ann" got married- Old gentleman very naturally gets in a towering rage when he hears it. Wants 44 John" to go to California, and shnta *?

"John" waa aasured that his wife ahould be restored to him Mr Spenoer at once drew up a petition for a writ of habeas corpus, aad before to morrow's sun the ro mantic bride will doubtless be restored to her sturdy husband .... The New York Herald says of the newly arrived "lion," Lord Napier, the Brit ish Minister to the United States : " He ia about five feet nine inchea in height, and drea?ea with democrat^ pta:nness His hair ia blaok, atrongly intermixed with grey, though he doea not appear to be over thirty-five years of age. Hia large, aearcbing dark eyea form a very oonapicuous portion of hia featurea The expression of the face ia somewhat that of a thorough business man, and hia manner, though slightly tinged with hauteur, ia, never theless, quite oordial He is, in fact, a very democratic lord. He dines at the table d hot* as a matter of preference, remarking that be wishes to beoome acquainted with the people of this oountry. " In conversation he is peculiar. Like good diplomatist, as be has the reputation of being, he listens more than he apeaka, and al waye has queations to aek. He haa a sort of 1 hesitancy in speeoh. seemingly c*ured by a desire to make a careful seleotion of language. His mind seems to have a practical turn, for he spoke of securing a house at Washington as soon as possible, aad mentioned a desire to know the most pleasant reeidenee in enmmer.
