SPIRIT OF TUB .MORNING PRESS The Intelligence mji : "We have observed with some solioitude, tha following brief paragraph, from ??nB* acknowledged source, oopied into the R cn? mond Enquirer: , ? ?' ? The Dallas Clarendon treatv is generally believed in reliable quarters to be dead. Mr. Buchanan, it is known, i? oppofed to it In its present shape, and it is semi-officially whis pered will discountenance any treaty that may be proposed with referenoe to Central America ' ?? The paragraph derives importance from being admitted into the columns of that influ ential Administration journal, and somewhat dampens our hopes as to the fate of the treaty; for, although we have no authentic copy of tha instrument, we have understood that it adjusted conclusively all material questions of difference between our country and Eng land, and that though there were possibly minor points on which the Senate might pause and desire some modification, there would probably be no difficulty about them, and they were not such as to jeopard the ultimate safety of the treaty. We should hoie. more over that the fentiments of tha President are not faithfully represented in tha paragraph. The treaty is yet before the Senate, not hav ing been disposed of." Our respected friends of the Intelligencer appear to ui needlessly alarmed. The para* graph they quote from tha Richmond Enquir er is f unded evidently on some of the thous and Washington letters makiQg ''revelations" which am uut to nothing more than the spre ulations of the writers, in most instances in fluenced too by their personal views and syn ? patbies. Oar opioion ha! been, and continues to be, that the recommitment of the treaty by the Senate is with the view to divest it of fea tares ?hioh were disapproved by the late ad ministration; and, we take it for granted, by the present cne, as they are antagonistic to the settled policy of the democratic party from Mr. Monroe's time to this hour; none .of which ffeatu xe?, by the by, are essential to the main objects sought to be accomplished by the in. strument We anticipate its return to Eng. land after the adjournment of the session, and new negotiations upon it under the auspices of the present administration, which would clear* ly have been the policy of the Pierce admin istration with reference to it had the treaty reached Washingtm a year ago in the shape la whioh it came here. The Cnion, continuing its comments on the Dred decision, says: 44 We refer to the judgment of the court in this ease in no spirit of triumph. We would not subject it to the mere uses of party. Many men supported the Nebraska-Kansas act who believed Congress had the light to exclude slavery frcm the Territories, but who deemed it inexpedient to have the right exercised They wished to keep the subject out of Con gresa. They thought as Mr. Webster did when he favored the organisation of New Mexico without the application of tha Wilmot proviso. Thc?e men may be unprepared for this decision. We know that in tha non-slave holding States there are many who sincerely deprecated the repeal of the Missouri Com promise. There are many who have been orought up in the faith of the Wilmot proviso. Thev, perhaps, have not examined both sides of the question, and will feel a regret at this decision as deep as the pleasure of our South ern friends is ardent- We would appeal to such men in a spirit of candor and patriotism; and, without censuring them for sentiments which they have long honestly cherished, only invite them to review their opinions, and to conform their aotion to the adjudication of the higheet tribunal in the land.

Ita Effect.?The deoision of the Supreme Court in the Dred Soott out oontinue? to grip* the Republican party awfully They suffer worte under the infliction, evidently, then they did under the defeat of Fremont. Thet left them oonacioni of great strength, end in the hope thet with another such tre mendous effort as they mede in the late Prea idential canvass, they hed a reasonable chance to clutoh tbe Government. Exultation over this far off proepect, rather than ohegrin and despair because they had not already suoceeded, characterised their publiehed re flections on tbe result of thai contest. In this oise, however, their tune is wonderfully changed ; tbey snap and snarl, ahfrave oyer What tbey realiae as likely to be tbe effect of tbe decision on tbe Northern conservative popular mind, and boldly call for revolution, proclaiming their faith in the power of " tbe people" above all oourts, all law, and all gov ernment. They stand now where all true patriots de sire to have them?no longer pretending to seek the accomplishment of their ends by law ful meant, as of late, but precisely upon the platform in that respect occupied by Qarrison, Abbey Kelly A Co. Their main strength in the lete Presidential canvass was in their pro testation* of the purpose of working out their ends only lawfully ; as hollow as the well in formed knew those protestations to be. Shorn of that subterfuge, and calling on their fol lowers to put down tbe Government, the Con stitution, and the Courts, as barriers that must be swept away in tbe fulfillment of tbeir " mission," tbey now stand before the world confessed naked and unadulterated abolition ists, as we have always contended that they are. Keeping their Handa la.?The New York Evening Post and Tribune, in their comments on the personnel of the new Administration, have evidently merely revamped tbeir old editorials of four years concerning the gentle men, individually, who oomposed the admin istration cf President Pierce. It is really amusing to note the entire identity between the articles to which we recur, euro posed, as tbey are, of tbe same old epithets, slurs and blackguardism. They made nothing what ever (as the result of the Presidential election proved) by that urgentlemanly course: nor is it possible, with tbe experience which the public have in their system, that tbey will be able to persuade any man for whose respect either member of the present Cabinet should reasonably care, that their disparagement of them is more true than of the Pierce Cabinet. From Jefferson's day down to present times, according to tbe earnest protestations of just such journals, every Democratic Chief Magis trate and every member of every Democratic Cabinet has been a scoundrel and a fool. Yet strange to say, the obstinate people will con tinue to elevate them to power; and, even more strange, tbe country will continue to prosper in all respects far more satisfactorily under tbeir guidanoe than under that of any whom the opposition by occasional streaks of luck once in a long time manage to instal in the Government. For our part, were the Post, Tribune, et at, to fail to blackguard tbe present Cabinet without stint from the start, we should dread least, after all, the peo pie had not secured in the present administra tion another old-fashioned Jeffersonian-Jack ton one. How to get the Deaired Belief?The Legislatures of New York and Massachusetts are tearing their hair and beating their breasts over the "wrongs" of the negrcei involved in tbe Dred Scott case, and in the intensity of their grief over the condition of those parties, put aside for the time being all real business before them, to devise means of affording them sjme relief from the effeetof what their organs characterise as the base conspiracy between the Supreme Court, the Executive, and the United States Senate, to compass tbeir en slavement. Now this is all a farce of the broadest kind, besides a shameful waste of legislative time only for political effect. We will furnish them gratuitously with a few facts through which, if properly acted on, tbey can in a week cure all the terrible disa bilities of these negroes over which they are whining. Via : Their owner, according to tbe pleadings, is no other than Mr. Sandford, a wealthy New York city merchant, who pur chased them from the estate of the late Dr. Emerson for the use of Dr. E.'s widow?his (Sandford'?) sister. Mrs. Emerson subsequent ly married a gentleman?a clergymao, we be lievo? of Springfield, Mass., where the now resides. If the members of tbe Legislatures aforesaid pity Dred and the rest cf these ne groes to tbe extent of say, ten dollars apiece, and if Mr. Sandford and Mrs. Emerson or her Massachusetts clerical husband share the ago* nised *'phelinks" of all Republican abolition* dom, the thing may be accomplished in a trice. But the truth is, the milk in this particular cocoa nut is not the fact that Dred A Co. are to continue in slavery; but that the law, as sfflrmed by the highest judicial tribunal in tbe land, .forever puts an estoppel on tbe plea that tbe principles of the Republican party are in accordance with constitution and law. The Rumors.?We advise the distant pub lic to place no confidence whatever in the thousand and one rumors from this city?of which most of the Washington (newspaper) correspondence of the hour is made up. That is, concerning the views and purposes of the new Administration. Tho writers, for lack of facts to write on, are simply playing their o'.d game of manufacturing surmises for the amusement of distant wonder mongers. Though the Administration is not yet fairly installed ?has hardly had an opportunity of gUncing at half a dozen points involved in ahe dis charge of its manifold dutiec?each of these wite-acres announces ita determination fairly and folly settled upon almost all matters and quettions of publio interest! We have wit nessed such expositions on the advent of each succeeding administration for the last quarter of a century, and rarely knew one of them to prove worth the paper on which it was written. The closeness with which the new admlnistra t?on is already devoting itself to consultation in Cabinet council, is a guarantee to the coun try that its members are by no means the hap bssard men tbey are reallj represented to be by writers, who insist that they have already matured tbeir plans and poliey for the conduct of the Government for the next four years. The Boston Cuatom-House is evidently destined not to go a begging for some patriotic gentleman to accept it on the termination of General Peaslee's term as Collector. There are already said to be quite a number who have signified that they won't play the ooy | paaiden UJ pr eased to ooaawt?Mr. J. B. Moore of Maine, Capt. Howl and of New Bod ford, Mr. Griswold, a lawyer, of Greenfield, Mass., and Mr. Austin, a Boston lawyer, (all of whoa are in Washiagton,) a brother of the lata Darid Heaahaw, a Boston merchant, (who is n it here,) and the Lord knows how many mora.

The Diplomatic Reception ?At noon to day, according to time-honored custom, the various Foreign Ministers accredited to this Government, called, in a body, on Preai dont Buchanan, and were, in form and in turn. preaanted to him by Mr Secretary-of* State Cass M. Sartigea, the French Minis ter, now the senior member of the oorps, ad dressed the President in their behalf, in a congratulatory and exceedingly satisfactory speech, to whieh President Buchanan repliod, in a manner which was the theme of muoh praise from the distinguished gentlemen 'o whom it wa# addressed.

The law providing for the improvement levies a front-foot tsz of four cents on all the streets where the gas mains are now or may hereaf ter be laid, for the purpose of erecting the lamp posts and furnishing the lamps, and a general tax for the purpose of defraying the expenses of the light* And here we would remark that there are qhite a number of cross streets and pieces cf streets, thiokly settled, where the corporation ought to compel the company to run the mains On many of these streets many of the dwellers are anxious to obtain the gas for private use, and are willing to bear their portion of the taxation so as to secure the immediate benefits of the publio improvement when it shall be com leted W.
