The Union moralises over the shortcomings of Republicanism, aa manifest in the grand, iloqoent promises and threats with ahioh their Majority in the lata iJcuse of Representatives eat to w?rk, when compared with the very ama'! hole cat cf which they crept at ita oloee-ererjthing they promised to do having been left undone, and the only thinga accom plished by them being their own discomfiture, utter defeat, and disgrace as a party ??

It is generally understood that the Clarendon Dallaa treaty was finally and satisfactorily disposed of by the Senate yesterday jfternocn. That is, that it was so amended as to make it acceptable to a na j 'rity of the body and was returned to the Executive to be tiansmitted to England for the acceptance cf that G^ernmcnt, or to form the basis of new negotiations which can hard come to a happy conclusion, inso much as it is the paramount interest of both countries to carry out the ostensible objeot of tke original instrument, and that only. Via : to assure to all nations the peaceable and equal erjoyment of the right of transit be tween the two ocean?, over the so convenient isthmus of Nicaragua. That was the design of this Government in the Clayton-Bulwer treaty, defeated only by a want cf fairness ia the dealing of England. The action cf the Senate upon this supplemental and explana tory convention?for such it ia-backed aa that will be by xealous care on tbe part of the State Department, will prevent the cnocess of any tricks u diplomacy against us, sa-h aa thoee in the perpetration of which Sir Uenry Hal war distinguished himielf in his negotia tion with Mr. Clajton. As modified, it seems to be understood that this Clarendon-Dallas eonrentica meets the riewa of the new admin istration, and, of course, also obviates the ob jections to features in tbe original which the lata aioiinis(ration entertained. The Deaf, Dumb and Blind Aiylum Cjn. trorersy.?We felt it our duty, for some da;s past, to put a?ide many other matters in order to spread before our District readers all the testimony in the iecent oace of the application to deprive Dr. Piatt S. Skinner ef the custody of the uafortanata children bound to him for the purpoaa of raceiving such education aa under their misfortunes of nature they may be euMoptible of. The sutjeot is of great interest, Indeed, to all who hare hearts to fee!, as well aa of great Importance to the particular clasa ef unfortunates unotg as cf the District All hare now had an opportunity to learn the facta involved in the controversy?Che reasons why the gentlemen who interested themselves In behalf of the poor pitiable children, sought to sever Dr. Skinner's connection with ary aueh inatitution in our midst; their purpose having been very Industriously misrepresented by parties who really conceived that they were aiding the sacred cause of charity in sus taining Dr. S. in Lis erident determination not to regard them, though the guardians of the institution of which he was the principal, aa having tbe right to oontrol hia action in it When we name thein-Amof Kendall, Byron Sunderland, Jas. C. McGuire, Win il Edes, George W. Rtggs, Judson Mitchell, and David A. Hall- all of the District of Columbia will comprehend at a glance that they could have no possible motive for engaging in a contro versy at law upon such a subject, except that of pure philactbrophj; of a sense of duty to tbe afflicud and unfortunate poor, in excellent keeping indted with what all know of them as oioaens renowned for their public utility, good sense and active benevolence, It is now ?o b. h?p?d tb.t ?iu ?<>? b.? ia tbil metropolis such an institution of the kind as they have been striving to secure for its future. Ccaptreller Whittlesey .-This valuable ?od venerated public officer has resigned Throughout the whole of the late administra te be w?s anxious to sever his connection With public affairs, and; indeed, more than <-noe, tendered his resignation to President *ieroe, who prevailed on him, from personal ?^derations, to continue in the discharge of ? uties of the fir?t coneptrollership of the PdViD* th? retidu# of hia (p'?i<ient nial of th? ?

" Unless we are greatly mistaken, this In vention will make a stir among the newspaper folks We regard it as a most Important and valuable improvement, and congratulate onr editorial brother upon its production, while at the same time, we welcome him to the ranks of American Inventors." The Hew Orleans Appointments.?We published yesterday a number of confirma tions to important Federal offices. The gen* t emen composing the list are well nigh as Will known in oonneetion with political affairs over the country as at home, so long have they been among those bearing the brunt of the fierce political oontests which have for years past marked the history of that so evenly divided (politically) State. We find that nearly all Louisianians here are in ecsta lies, as it were, over the selections, and be* lieve that they were advised by both the Lou isiana Senators, and Messrs. Sandidge and Davidson?Louisiana Democratic members of the Bouse. Such at any rate seems to be the understanding among the host of politicians one now meets at every turn in this city. Minnesota ?We have every reason to be lieve that the resignation of the Hon. Willis A. Gorman, Governor of Minnesota, has reaohed the Government her?; sent on, we presume, by way of affording the Administration an op portunity to apply the principle of "rotation" in that far-off region We think, further, from the signs in the political horiscn. that his suc cessor will be that staunch old Democratic wheel-horse, Col Sam Medary, of the Colum bus (Ohio) Statesman, than whom to other has labored longer and more faithfully in the harness The reader mu<st not understand us as speaking in this connection from aay knowl edge of our own with reference to the visws of the Government here upon the subjest; but from certain undescribable signs, such as, when oonsulted and confided in by us for years past, have rarely deceived us.

They immediately went into Executive session, and eon firmed ????ml of them, it la understood without refer enoe to a committee. The short time lea them ere the session terminates leads us to conolade that by nightfall all of them will hare been finally disposed of. Our impression is that among those already confirmed is the nomination of Phillip Clay ton, Esq., for eight years past Second Auditor of the Treasury, to be Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, vioe Peter G Washington, Esq. Mr. Clayton is from Georgia, and from his youth up has been the immediatf personal friend of the present Secretary. Mr. Wash* ington, who was selected by Mr. Guthrie for the position, had previously had very close business and personal relations with that dis tinguished gentleman, thwoffice being one re quiring the most oonfidential personal asso ciations between ita Incumbent and the Chief of the Department. Mr Washington won in the position most enviable fame for himself, while as long as the Government lasts the public will snrely be ben efited by the many reforms and improvements In the transaction of the Department's affairs of which he was the author. No more efficient and competent functionary than Mr. W. ever served the Government of the United States Our old.friend, John S. Cunningham, Esq., late a clerk in the Navy Department, is in luck, thousands will be glad to hear in all see* tions of the Union; for he is as widely known to the publio men of the country, as he is poj - ular with them, of all parties. He was to d nominated and confirmed to be a Purser in the Navy. We always did bet on the gallant Col onel. and as he has certainly oome out the very first in the current so interesting contest for capital things, wo shall dream of hiui here after as the personification of good luck?no, managoment.
