SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS Our respected neighbors of the Inttiligenctr ir? gutting in a bad way. We thought, on the f rat manifestation of their ailing it could be eared by the venerable Colonel Benton's reaaedy?" Cattiag for the aimplee." It is now evident, however, that thej are martyrs to a eevere attack of ** fantad? " They are fretting themselves into a nervous fever over the New York joke of a meeting here to rege late the distribution of the New York patron age of the Federal Government The whole affair was a piece of fad, and nothing more?as we long sinee explained?most of thoee named aspromlneat in its proceedings not being pres ent, while the balanoe participated in it only4 for the sake of ridienliag current eforts to eoatrol the Government in such n.atters. Under saeh eircamstances?whieh we made known in dae Usee? our respected n< ighWrs of the Inullxfftnetr are Piekwiokian aponthe subject,?to the extent of requiring copious doses of esafaetida to bring their neives baok to their usual equanimity. The Union protests against the misrepre eantations of the Republican party jre*s con cerning the late addrees of Govern- Geary, and denies the cerrectness of their reports rf his private conversations whieh ecnt'ict with the tenor of hie address. We translate tho Unton't article to mean that Goverror Geary (who is now here) is unwilling to be ola^sed m the ultra Free-State party man he has lately appeared to be through the publications of Republican papers that have recently s'< in dustriously petted him. lie oertainly set on to have compromised his former political posi tion None will rejoice more than the Souti on finding that all the stories showing that he turned abolition politician in the discharge of the duties of the UorUrno.ship of Ksrsas ware the creation of the brains of these who wished # Mm to occupy juch a position WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSiP. **Rotation "?The announcement thVi the administration design "rotating' leading cfScd holders out of place in sections of tho Union where that practice is common and approved, has certainly raised np a best of applicants for thousands of federal < ffices of all degree'. If our informat'.ca be eorreet, there is hardly a tide-waiter's plaoe, cr a teat at the oar of a boarding cfleer's tiney craft, occupied by a Democrat North of Mason and Dixon's line, in search of which there are not half a doxen patriots clamoring already; protesting their right to share the patronage of the Federal Government. As for the post offices1 fcu hels ef applications for them are daily reaching Washington. The understanding was that, except for good eause. no removals would be made except on the expiration of postmasters' commissions. The promulgation of that understanding turns out to have been enough to have started the patriots after not only the post effioea paying enough to make them Presidential appoitt ments?to require their nomination to the Senate every four year<?but even after such places, the emoluments of which are in some eases not more than 950 per annum. At the rate at which such applications sre said to be pouring Into W aehiogton just now, it strikes u? that in some quarters of the country there are not a few democrats who write down all as political enemies who happen to be in ofioe. The Nev Tork Contest ?it seems to be understood this morning that at a late hour last evening the Administration informally determined upon some of the principal New Tork oity appointments We huve no infor mation (ourself) in the premises, and have only to say that the hoet now here interested in the matter have come to the conclusion that the administration have definitely settled upon some of these appointments, as follows: Au gustus Sohell, Collector of the Port; E B. Hart, Surveyor of the Port; Isaac V. Fowler, Postmaster. It Is further understood that the resigna tion of Collector Red field has been received, which afforded an opportunity of appointing a successor to him at this time without vio lating the principle of awaiting the termina tion of his commission. P. S. The above appointments have been made, and also that of Isiah Ryaders to be Marshal, and George Saunders Navy Agent at Now York. Thinning Out .?The crowd of office-seeking Strangers is by no means as dense in Washing ton now, as a fortnight ago. Perhaps half have disappeared-quite half. The termina tion cf the contents over the Maeiaehudctte, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Michigan, Wiscon sin , Arkansas, California and Missouri offices has enabled the throngs attending here to in fluence their fete, to leave Washington. Most of them have done so; leaving behind only the moat inveterate dabblers in spoils, who always continue to hang arouad until the last ? moment, pretty much aa cleaned out ehron'o gatr biers invariably eontinue to linger around tbe tiger long after it has devoured their last "red " Presidential Appoimtmeuto ?The Union this morning announces the following Preei dontial appointments: John S Dougherty, of Miasouri, t0 be Re-1 ceiver of Public Moneys t<? the disvict o' lands subject to "le at St Lools, Muaouri, ? the place of Richard B Dallam, whose term of office baa expired.
