WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Wot Quite so Jolly.?Thecffi:e seekers cf all degrees, a ho are t? be met in our streets Juat now, do not look as jolly as a week ago by half. Then they were full of hope and fun, every man of them Now tbe game has become serious, and they all appear (on their countenances) to realise that tbe ehances are more than even against any one of them that ?an be named But ene can be in luok for every offiaeieing nought hero in person, though there are at least an average of five afrer each such office, and as mar.y more engaged in spending their money and time in looking fcufter the fortunes of friends in this connection Itlfc ?thankless business, a pre.- king busi. seas, anu * wearying business to be engaged that of tffi;a seeking ? bringing one's flesh d^rw* end /arrowing one's ccuntenanee with wrfrfcfw ifaster tbaa the National 4'?Tu?i. These facts scecunt (Is? the so sudden chango la the appearance cf the ??*ass of strangers to which we allude?yesterday, coyirtering hey dey fellows, in manner and tone, *vcry man of tbem: and to-day nervous, brief cf fpeeeb, aad fUtkered arounl the month, as though Just rising fjem making a dinner on unripe persimmons. Hiearagtia ?As we perceive that a portion ef the distant preea aeem inclined to deceive themselrea and their readers upon the subject of the disposition of the new Administration to enforoe tbe neutrality law aa well as all ether laws-that ia, in the matter of Ni:ara gua s flairs?we have but to call attention to the fa:t, that within tho last week the recruit lag shops for Walker's benefit lately flour ishing la New York oity under various pre tences, have been closed, and it has been de elded by the United States Commissioner in the ca>e of Fabens and Bolton to hold the ae e?sed for trial. These facts do not look aa though these who w< uld violate the neutrali ty law m*y reasonably expect any more sym pathy from the Buchanan, than they received from the Pierce Administration. The fillibut tors are very active gentlemen, and watch the ?igna and the chances with constant solicitude. If there existed the least disposition on the part of the new Administration to wink at efforts to violate the neutrality law they would have discovered it ere Ibie, &nd their recruiting shops in New York would be driv ing a brisker bullies* tbsn before; instead of being shut up, as at present. Plagiarism. ?Bennett, of the New York Herald, as every body knows, is a fierce ?tickler f^r what he is pleased to call " his property." According to his fancies, one half of all tbe newspapers in the country are cdi tod by abstractions from his columns; and cne-half cf all the volcmcs published, are compiled from the same exhaustlcta source. Now, one would suppose that Bennett himself would scorn to appropriate a single line not his ; and yet, in the very number of the Her mid, and in the very column (a few days ago) in which he fulminates one of his wholesale and ridiculous charges of plagiarism, he thus coclly appropriates, without one line of credit, four columns of word for word, and figure for figure, which must have cost our neighbor of the IntMigtnctr, in which the matter first appeared, great labor and expense : " Elsewhere in to-day's paper may be fnnnd a elear and complete analysis of the new Tariff act vbich gr ea into operation on the let ot Juiy next Business men will find it an in valuable dc cument, as its arrangement is such that they can ascertain at a glacce the amount calculated under the old^nd that imposed by the new Tariff upon any description cf mer chandise " , r " Kansas Affairs ? jsIboc writing the intro duction to the communication on Kansas af fairs appearing in yesterday's Star, we have received the Squatter Sovereign of tbe 24 th of February?btringfellow's journai-and re joice to find that our friends in the Territory have the good sclsc, amid all the incentives to undue excitement by which they are sur rounded, to ask of the Government here no interference on their beha!f incona;atent with Its high duty of abstaining from taking sides directly or Indirectly with either contending party of tbe Territory. We qucte Qen. String flow's paper, as follows, to bear out our view as to the position of those with whom he acts: " Kansas is now in a state of quietude, ar d we want only an'hunest, intelligent man for Governor?one who won't attempt impossibil ities, but be content to see tbe laws admiiiis* tared by honest ai_d impartial officers?one who !.a? not a Presidential cmdiJatt to ear ry on kit lurk, aa our present Executive im agined he bad, and we will not care where he haue from, provided aleayr that he is an old fascioLea rational Democrat." ? ? ? ' 1? f'l w?cerity aLj caLdor we state, that wc desue nuking more than a fair, honest, and imp rt.^l ad una motion of the matters la our Tenitt-y, and do matter what the re suit may te ?oliticatly, we wilhbe the first to acquiesce We have our opinion as to what that result should be, and wc will labor fair I* and konmtly for It; hut if we are defeated we will utter "sot om void of wmmt.'1 Every Union-loving man, iTiry man who de sires a continuance of thoee blessings guaran tied to us bj a fakbfnl id be recce to the latter and spirit of tba Constitution, from ona h tremitj of the oonntary to tba other, dMires that tba scenes enacted in Kansas during tha last two years should never raonr again; bat thare are not in all oar broad land any men who hare so much right to, and who do so ranch deprecate tbesa things as tbe National Democracy, tbe old law and order party of Kansas Territory. They, besides baring the same high and noble reasons for this feeling that others hare outside the Territory, now that calm reamn hss had time to resume its sway, appreciate more than any others can, the ruin and utter wretchedness which must ensue, should this state of things again reour." The Philadelphia Appointments.?Accord* ing to our anticipation these appointments were determined on yesterday afternoon after the Star went to press All the present in cumbents give way to new men. The east that has trivmphed is an exceedingly strong or.e ; 13 a whole, by far the strongest whose claims wore presented. It ii as follows: Col. Joseph B. Baker, of Lanoaster county. C<>1 Uctor; Gideon G. Westcott, Esq , of Phila delphia, Postmaster; Chambers MeKibben, E<q., of Philadelphia, Naval Officer; John Hamilton, jr , of Philadelphia, Surveyor of the port; Wm Badger. E.q , of Philadelphia, Navy Agent; and Jacob Yost, Esq , of Mont gomery, Marshal All these gentlemen are well knewn to be smong the m^st energetic and active Democrats in the State, wielding, personally, too, great influence, growing out of their high standing and individual ability. An Important Army Ordir.?The follow ing General Order, No. 3, (dated Head-Qaar ters of the Army, New York, Maph 18,1857.) will prove of general interest, explaining as it does., import int military changes recently determined on : 1 Brewet Major General John E Wool will assume command of the Department of the Last. Head Quarters, Troy, N. Y. 2 Brevet Major General David E. Twiggs will, about the lit of May, repair to and as miuio the command of the Department of r?i3 Brigadier General Newman F. l/ljrke, Colonel aixth infantry, will, in antici pation of a future movement of his regiment, repair to California and assume command of the Department of the Pacifio. Headquar ters, San Frsnoisoo. uP? u**dM?*rters of the Department of the West will, iu future, be St. Louis, Mo By command of Brevet Lieut Gen. 6cott: L. Thomas, Ais't Adj Gen. Tha Scheme to Abolitioniao Virginia ? W e perceive by Northern papers that the partner of Mr. Eli Thayer, M. C. elect from tho Worcester district of Massachusetts?who by tbe by will "sing small" enough here next winter upon acy surh subject-is no other tb? n the redoubtable Mr. Underwood, not long undo turned neck ane! heels out of Virginia on icconnt of hir ranrpant abolitionism. The Northern publio will comprehend the prospeot h ?ir En igrant Aid Society really has of sue seat', from tbe fact ihat Underwood himself tare nr* sl ow his not e south cf the Potomfc; k> much art all the ^Southern people inoecsei gainst b:tD on sccount of his persistent in. indent slanders levelled at them, as a coin nunity. The scheme simply involves an ef ^rt to rob the credulc us who are also fanatics, it ths North, cf mot e or 1cm of their spare ia;h?that's all. Ihe Fourth and Sixth Kegiraonts of U ?. Infantry, *e ?The following is a general or ler, No. 2, (dated Headquarters of th? Army, Vdjutant Gonoral'a Office, Washington, Maroh 8 1S57.) recently issued by the Adjutant ieneral : , The General-in-Chief, with the approbation >f tho War Department, countermands para Staphs 1, 2 3. 4? 5, and S of his General Or lera >o 1, resp-.teting the movements of the Itb and 6th regirownta ot Infantry. Tbe move nents therein Lsdicatcd, will probablj, be nade the fullowir^ year. The execution of paragraph 7 of the same >rders will be def irred until a suitable period >f the autumn or late i? the summer, to be hereafter determined by tbe Department oom mander, who wilL then take the necessary measareifor the abandonment of Forts Kearny and Laramie, and will order the 6th regiment Of Infantry to take t?ost at Jefferson Barracks. i orts Pierre and L* okout will be evaouated as heretofore directed. By order : S. Cotv.'KB, Adjutant General. Sold. The New York Day Book has been regularly "sold" by the account of the New York meeting held fen this city, which we pub lished a few days ago,?rot peiceiving that it was from beginning to end but a piece of bad inage or satire upon the assumption of eelt Bonsiituted distributors of federal officers in these t:me?. The Day Book do votes to it a Bolumn or so of imdignant comment?raving and bursting off ita suspender buttons in its agony over the affair. We do not know who personated Mr Raj Thompson, the alleged President of the met ting for the occasion, lie was in person, a milo from the spot, while the boys were enjoying their fua after this fashion ?? In the "Hopper "-We've a notion tls among the appointments that will get clear through the mill by to-morrow night, will be the following: John C Blanchard, Register of tbe Land Office at Ionia, Mich Henry J. Wilson, Receiver of Public Moneys at same plaoa Wm E. Kucker, Register at Piattsburg, Missouri. Wm A. Cornthers, Register at Sank Rapid'. Minnesota. 1 * Ihe Naval Court cf Icqniry are not in session to-day, owing to the continued illness of a portion of the family of Mr Judge Advo cste Carlisle. It is certainly tbe impression among Navy officers here that Mr. Carlisle has rsignid the position of Judgo Advocate, or is about so to do. Ho Levoe?We learn that there is not to be a public reception at the Executive Man sion this evening, as some persons seem to im agine. We mention the fact because various inquiries have been made to day on the sub ject, at the iStar office. Ihe California Appointments?We ap prehend that tbe leading appointments in San Francisco will be disposed of by tie Adminis tration in the oourse of to-day.

A report was in oironlation that tbe lands advertised by the Department te be told in Iowa on the 4'h of May next bad been withdrawn from market We were informed by the Commissioner of the General Lard Office that such a withdrawal is not contem plated by the Department, and the lands pro claimed will be sold as advertised. In New York we notice an active demand for money, without a corresponding supply, and a depressed condition of the itoek market Tbe ciu.'e of the existing stringency in mone tary and commercial affairs may be traeed to excessive importations, a diminished produo tion of gold, and a decrease of the ootton on>p now in course of delivery, as compared with the preceding year We observe that for the eight months and a half ending tbe 14'.h inst , the importations at New York ex^ed?d those of the same period la 1356 by $25 773,891, and we estimate the aggregate of the incrca?e for the whole of tbe present fiscal ye?r over the last at from forty eight to fifty millions of dollars It is appre hended that the new Tariff act, whioh goes into effect July 1st, 1857, will further stimu late importation* State and rail ror?5 itock? have materially been affected bv these symptoms of an incipi ent pressure.

The grocery dealers of Philadelphia are in a state of exoitement. It appears that a oertain grocery fiimh i recently been deal ing extensively in this city among our mer chants in that trade For a few days past their store has been closed, and a bill with the words " Closed on accaunt of deiith in the family" was stuck on the door. Owirg to certain rumors, however, the creditors of tbe firm became anxious in regard to the continued absence of the parties, and made endeavors to find some clus to the mystery. Yesterday morning the sheriff called at tbe piaoe and opened tbe door, when, on making a search, the store was found to ocntain only a etove and a faw other other articlos. New Yohk Villa**.?The New York cor respondent of tbe Charleston Courier gives a long account of a most strange story which he alleges to be strictly true. A beloved and el derly pastor of ono of tbe New York city churches was oalled upon one night by a man who requeeted him to go and christen two of his ohildren. lie promptly complied- As be was returning heme, he was accosted by a per son who called him by name and accused him of issuing from a house of ill fame ! Money was demanded of him, and in default of pay ing it was threatened with exposure. The olergymae took no notice of it for a time ; but his steps were dogged perpetually, till finally it began to wear upon blm. He told no one, but left and went to Earope, thinking thereby to escape from his tormentors. Bat he was mi'taken. On his return they still pursued him He resigned his charge to tbe astonishment of hia parishioners, who could not comprehend the reason. He went to a country village, wn still pursued, and it is believed that, dreed ing the effeots of such reports, ft\l*o though they were, be actually paid hush money. Finally, the rssoals were arrested for some other villainy, when this whole offair leaked out and the clergyman came back to his ehureh. It is incredible that a pastor should thus cower to such scoundrels. It all traci ired within eighteen months past.
