EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITT: TIISUAV March 31, INT. V AHUTWHTl raovu> II UIT AT Tfl Orvica If T?B.n ?a?Wi " . crmwiM tin bat mot ?mi TM ?BXT I??*. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS The Intelligencer demurs to what it allege* to bo the habit of the Democratic journals ?a denouncing the land distribution policy (which it favors) as a Whig measure. Admit ting the death of the Whig party it expresses due respect and regard for its memory. The Union Fees in the appointment of the lion. R. J. Walker to the Governorship of Kansas, a ppeedy solution of all the trouble* in that Territory. It publishes the following interesting letter from that gentleman to the President, foreshadowing the policy he hopes to be able to carry out: WAjHf58T05, March 26, 1857. Mr Diar Sir : 1 have, at your request, re. considered my determination, as announced to you, declining your tender of the office of Wot ernor of the Territory of Kansas. In view of the opinion now presented to you, that the safety of the Vnion may depend upon the se lection of the individual to whom shall be as signed the task of settling the difficulties the Kansas question, I have concluded that a solemn sense of duty to my country requires me to accept this position. I am brought to thil conclusion with an unaffected diffidence in my own ability, but with a fervent hope that the same overruling Providenoe which has carried my beloyed country through so many perils will now attend and direct my effort* for her welfare, and that my humble effort* for her welfare, and that my course will not be prejudged by any portion of my fellow citizens, in or out of Kansas. I understand that you. and all your Cabi net, cordially concur in the opinion expressed by me, that the actual, bona J"ie resident* of the Territory of Kansas, by a fair and regular vote, unaffected by fraud or violence, must be permitted, in adopting their State constitu tion, to decide for themselves what shall be their social institutions. This is the great fundamental principle of the act of CongTess organising that Territory, affirmed by the Su preme Court of the United States, and is in accordance with the views uniformly expressed by me throughout my public career. I con template a peaceful settlement of this ques tion by an appeal to the intelligence and pa triotism of the whole people of Kansas, who should all participate, freely and fully, in this decision, and by a majority of who*e vote* the determination must be made, as the only proper and constitutional mode of adjustment I contemplate no appeal to military power in the hope that my countrymen of Kansas, from every section, will submit to a decision of this matter by a full and fair vote of a ma jority of the people of that Territory. If this decision cannot thus be made, 1 see nothing in the future for Kansas but civil war, ex tending its baleful influence throughout the country, and subjecting the Union to immi nent hazard. I will go, then, and endeavor thus to ad just these difficulties, in the full confidence so strongly expressed by you. that I will be sus tained by all your own high authority, with the cordial co operation of all your cabinet. As it will be impossible for me to leave for Kansas before the second Monday of May next, I would desire my appointment to take effeet from that date Very respectfully, your friend, _ _ R. J. Walker. Ja*e? Bcchakait, President of U. States. WASHING TON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The Xx-Seeretary of State In Kan*a* ?It appears to be understood among the men of Kansas in Washington, and they are neither few or far between, that Mr. David Wood*on. ex-Secretary of State for Kan*as Territory, is to be called on to fill the post of Register cf the Land Office at the Delaware (Kansas) land agency. We trust that their impression in this connection is founded on something sub stantial. In the discharge of his late duties Mr. H Godson has evinced a degree of mind> nerve and character far beyond what bis friends expected of him. He has essentially shown himself to be a man?a true man? among men of intellect and capacity ; while no sensible person can object to the propriety of the policy which Governor Walker has evi dently marked out for himself, in the matter of determining to enter on the discharge of his delicate and responsible trust untram melled with any of the difficulties in which all who have so far been in office in Kansas nave been more or !e?s involved The Demo cratic party of the country, firmly fixed asjit iS*again?t the machinations of the bogus Gov ernor Robinr.-n, ei-Gov. Reeder, et at , ap j>reciat%the bearing of Mr. H'codson through ?nt all his trials there, lie has thus won Imperishable fame, and, we know well any thing that the Administiation may do for him Will be duly appreciated by all who stand by Ue principle of the Kansas Nebraska act ?pon which the great contest of November L?*t was fought and won P. S Since^ this article was put in type we ftnd in the Union confirmation of the belief wf the men of Kansas now here that Mr Woodson is to be promoted. The Ilegistership cf the De!aware Land Office is worth, pecu niarily, double his late salary. The Canal?Tide Gate*.?The plau sug gested in the Fntelligevc*, of the 23:h instant for eleansing the canal by tide gate- at either end is oertainly an alluring idea, though we d^mbt that to admit the tide at one end until high water and then permit it to pars out at the other until the tide recedes, would keep the canal free of filth, a, the motion of the water wuull bc too ?ugfi>h p ^ may be advisable to u* tide gates at each rt- rj?to c,an%i iock Kate9'to be at high tide and retain the water until low ' *h"' hj aUdes ia lh? Kates the water could be let out and produce a rapid current at pleasure, the gates to be opened at either end at alternate tides, thus insuring theeleans ieg of the entire canal to low water line. The i canal being excavated below low watermark as at present, causes the most offensive matter to be retained. Either of the gate plans ex poeo the canal bottom during low tide?a ae. rious objection. In adopting the covered sewer system the ground occupied as wharves would offer the moet convenient position for construction, leav ing the entire line of canal to be filled with ?artbi, which would add many valuable acres tj tli* or y?eld a large space for any purpose most desirable. hJtuV7 "boulJ to protect the within*1 eh* * great nation, Tt? ??>;?>' " Z/J' T'"?"{th" ?t, ud WMhinpoo .ill i? h.r iof?c, reeeir. th. b.n.?t ?f >htt ? ? ' cu .eeo.pl,.I., thereby incuring tb. vaiicn of her naturally healthy climate Gone -The office-seekers have, for the most Mrt deserted us. Since Friday l?at there ha* been a regular exodua of them from Wash ington city, caused by the fact that the offi eiai mill has ground out moet of the appoint ment* in which they were Interested. Half a doien have bwn in attendance here for nearly every place so fir disposed of. As they con gregated in the reception hells of the leading hotels and were Pennsylrania Avenue birds in pleasant weather, their disappearance leaves a vacuum, as it,were, very perceptible to those who "keep the run" of men and things around them. The flenth en Kansas ? Commenting, on Saturday last, upon Kansas affairs, the Rich mond Enquirer so forcibly illustrates the fact that the South simplj asks for the faithful ad ministration of the principle of the Kansas Nebraska act, as that we quote it as follows: " Kansas is soon to be the soene of such an experiment as must prove or disprove the ca pacity of the people to control themselves, to enforce the principles of the government, and perpetuate the L'nion. Xbe drama is draw ing to a close. Not many months will elapse before the Territory will be arrayed in form, as well as ready in fact, for admission as a State If the sense of the people, touching the formation of the constitution, is ascer tained according to law and justice, and fairly and freely proclaimed, whether slavery be re pudiated or recognized, the Union may be considered safe. But if violence and fraud are allowed to mould the sovereignty for the new State, passion and prejudice will have triumphed over right and reason, the oause of freedom will have wounded itself; the conser vatism of the oountry will have been proved incapable of countervailing the influence cf fanaticism and repelling the attacks of trai tors. The Union will have been shaken to its centre by the approach of en eerthqueke, which will form a fissure of Are along the dividing line between the North and the South. '? The appointment of Hon Robt. J.Walker to the Governorship of Ksnsas, at the present juncture of affairs, assures us that the admin* istration is uot unmindful of the immediate necessity of prompt, energetic, and impartial action. A gentleman of lofty integrity, gene pus impulses, sterling velor and unclouded judgment; with a clear conception of the rights, and an accurate estimate of the char acter and interests of every section of the country, with administrative talents of a high order,_ experience in statesmanship, and a capacity for diplomaoy ; there is every reason to believe that he will prove himself equal to any and every emergenoy, adequate to the task of suppressing lawlessness and violence, and paving the way for popular sentiment to speak out plainly and fearlessly and fully, against slavery or for it, as a legitimate ma. jority may decide, in the organisation of a State government " We need hardly add that such language from the 1-Inquirer at this time justifies and substantiates the position with reference to the Kansas oontrovery, maintained through uut the late Presidential canvass by the ora tors on the stump, in behalf of the Democratic party, throughout the noc-slaveholding States The Military Department of the Pacific - Official advices from this department have been received in Washington up to the 4th of March, inst. Col Fauntleroy had assumed the temporary command of the department, in which he will continue until the arrival ont of Brevet Brigadier General Clarke, who leaves the Atlantic tide by the steamer of the 5th proximo. According to these dispatches, the department was in a very satisfactory state of quietude, the only complaints of Indian out* rages heard of late, being an account of some murders charged on the Indians in the vicinity of Pitt river. The effect of the cruising of the U. S. (naval) steamer Massachusetts, in Pu" gett's Sound, had been most beneficial. As she has been withdrawn from that cervice by the Secretary, efforts are being made, we hear, to induce the Navy Department toordeTanother vessel of war there, to perform like service. The Sewers ?The Washington public will be most happy to learn that last night the Council passed the Board of Aldermen's joint resolution, authorizing the Major at onoe to eause the sewers of the city to be thoroughly cleansed. They will now look to the Mayer to prosecute this work of so vitel necessity with vigor and without a moment's delay: as, upon the manner in which he shall discharge that duty depends, in a great measure, the solu tion of the problem whether Washington is to be decimated by an epidemic this Bummer or not. We have not heard a single Washington physician speak upon the subject without ex pressing the opinion that if this work be not speedily and thoroughly ^one, the public health must be most disastrously affected as soon as the summer's sun shall shine down upon us with its usual intensity. Substantially True.?We have every reaion to place entire confidence In the statements embraced in the following briel paragraph from the Washington corresjondence of the New York Trilun*: " Lord Napier came here with four or five J millions of claims against our government, for the destruction of alleged property of British subjects at the bombardment of Greytown Two weeks before the late administration went out, M. Sartiges preferred similar demands on behalf of Frencn subjects, requetting Mr. Marcy to leave them open for adjustment by his successor; but he prepared a reply which is regarded as oonelueive against our liability, and Lord Napier, feeling its force and bearing upon England in its application to Copenhagen and Canton, will withhold his Intended re clamations." TheBrif Armstrong Claim.?The Jnteffi gencer yesterday, speaking of this celebrated case against the Government, said. '' Bv a printed report of an argument of S. C. IteH, Jr . Esq., in support of the claim, a copy cf which lately fell into our bands, we find thet the case is still before the court; and we recur to the matter now merely to express our admiration of the learning and ability displayed bv the young counsellor in bis ar gument in advocacy of a claim founded in one of the most gallant actions which adorn the history of the war of 1812. It is well worth the perusal of any student of political or judi cial history." Our respected friends of the Inttlhgenvr in these remarks, simply express the very general opinion of the professional men of j Washington with reference to this argument. Mr. John Appleton ?We place no confi dence in the "Washington correspondence" rumors of the intention of this gentleman to '?" arn to Portland. All the epplicants for the position of Collector of that port have ex pressed a willingness to waive their claims if 0 wil1 acc?pt the position, we hear Never '.-oless, we have no idea that he will do bo. The Long BridgeZw. have so far been unable to learn how far the committee of the Councils of Washington, to see to the repairs of the Long Bridge, have carried out the in struction upon which tkey are to act in the premises P. S ?The Mayor informs us that they are seeking an interview with the Secretary of the Treasury on the subject. Beappointed.?Fleming B. Miller has been reappointed U. ? Attorney for the Western District of Virginia; his commission having expired en March 22, 1857. The Rival Court of Inquiry is still en gaged in making up Its judgement in the Meide case ?? The Tuesday Morning Bee options at the Rxecutive Mansion have been dlsoontinnod. Haval.?The U 6. steam-frigate Merriinao arrived at Boston, from Norfolk, on yesterday. Court Of Claims ? Yesterday, Tbeophilus C. Callicot, of New York oitj, was sworn an attorney of thia Court. The Court ordered testimony to be taken in the following eases on the law docket: J W. Deeble, James Thome and others, Maria Ste reason, llenry Savage, Charles D ArfwedMn, Washington L. Kiddtek, Heirs of Joshua Eddy, Benedict J. Heard, and Edward W. Tyson. The argument in the ease of J. H McCul lough's Executors was resumed by Mr. Blair on the part of the OoTernment, and further argument was postponed. Adjourned.

Senator Ivenon, of (Ja., who has been ill from an attack of rhuematiem here sinoe the late called session, has recovered, his many friends will be glad to hear, and will leave Washington, for hie home, to-morrow. Thi Proposed Division or Nicaragua ? The agreement is that Costa Rica will take both banks of the river San Juan, Lake Nica ragua, and the territory between it and the Caribbean Sea. Honduras takes Chontales and the remainder will be given to San Sal vador. The three republics will sustain a sufficient force in the divided territory to main tain peace and order, and after a specified time it will be reunited and placed once more in the position of an independent republic. Didm't Car* Mpch About the Wira but Felt vbrv Anxious About thr Feather? ? A oountryman, whose wife had left his board and taken the bed sdong, was in town yester day in search of the errant wife and bed. He told a city friend that he didn't feel so anxious about the wife, as she was worthless, but he was very anxious to recover the feathers, as they were worth lorty-eigbt cents a pound. If anybody sees a loose wife or feather oed lying about, be will please leave word with the Chief of Police ?Louisville Democrat. America* Marbles ?In West Rutland, Vermont, marble is obtained which haa no superior for sculpture in the world, and some of it has been exported to Rome, ordered by Italian sculptors; it has a fine grain, and works beautifully under the chisel. In Great Barrington Mass., there is a flexible marble, which bends like a bow when wet. Black mar ble equal to that of lrelSbd, is found in New York, and rerd antique is found in many dis tricts, and in ever State, in almost every va riety.
