EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: MONDAY April 6, 1S37. SPIRIT OF THE MORJV.IXQ PRESS. Mr. John Appleton, having bceu appointed Assistant Secretary of State, takes his leave of j the readers of the Union in a gracefully writ ten valedictory, in which he says : t> Th? physical reasons which first Induced our Idea of withdrawal. led naturally to arrangement* which have outlived (wi- are glad to say) their ?rignal cause, but we are none the less gratified witn a change which gives us a better prospect of confirmed recovery to our health than we could have expertrd to e'njoy amidst the peculiar anxie ties ant! labors of a daily ftewspaper. We had intended to increase somewhat the size ol" the Vnion. to clothe it in a new dress, and to enlarge the spht re of its correspondence and its contribu tions. The idea, however, which we have seen mentioned, of making it compete with the double sheets of the London Times, never occurred tons. There is no place in Kngland where the Times rouid snstain itself except London, and there is n?> place in America where a similar journal could pnss,bly succeed exept New York." The Union, in this connection, announces the resignation by Gen. Thomas of the '? office of Assistant Secretary of State, which he has held fur the la.?t eighteen month.", and whose du ties he has discharged with intelligence, indus try. and fidelity. This testimony is fairly due to him ou the score of public duty, but we are the more inclined to render it becauBe our per sonal and friendly relations with him have ena bled u* to appreciate, as they deserve, his many estimable qualities. It is unnecessary to add that his withdrawal has not been induced by any want of interest, on his part, for the suc cess of the Administration, or a want of confi dence by the Executive in his ability or effi. ciency. which qualities he has shown heretofore in various positions in the public service, and will continue to manifest, we doubt not. in any sphere which he may choose to fill." The ltadligrnctr, in an article upon onr re lations with China, expresses the opinion that ?tar "co-opcrati?>n with(ircat Britain and France, i. undertaken at all. should be strictly confined to object? within the range of a peaceful diplo macy. and should be prosecuted without in any way or to any degree compromising the strict neutrality of the I'uited States in the late dis pute between England and China." % The Democratic Almanac axd Political Register, for published by C.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP The Maike Appointments.?A work of great labor has been accomplished, and a delicate duty discharged in the matter of the Maine ap pointments. Having been officially announced, gracefully bowing to the behests of the Presi dent, Maine's 44 mighty delegation " has taken wing for the North. Most of the pmes were sharply contested with varying hopes for aeveral days, but with the perfect consolousnew on the part of the ri vals that all could not win ! The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; therefore, success does not always imply supe rior merit, nor defeat carry with it disgrace. The victor may not always be brave, and heroc3 are often found amongst the fallen. The 44 rotary " wheel once put in motion to grind out these appointments, revolved wisely upou its axle, rolling the ins gracefully out, and the outs as gracefully in. Among the former, are many old and tried friends who have adorn ed their respective offices for many years, but who will now cheerfully resign them to other hands, equally faithful, equally true. Appoint ments are necessarily attended with disappoint ments, and hence, it is not only good Scripture, but good philosophy, to 4,rejoice with those that rejoice, and weep with those that weep." There is one pleasing feature, (the more pleas ing because rare.) attending the distribution of these favors. Not a word of complaint has been uttered by any of the applicants against the President, llis desire to harmonize all interests and award ample justice to all parties, was so obvious, that he seems to have extorted the ex clamation from every lip : 4* Though he sley me. still will I trust in him." The new cast, in point of administrative abil ity, may not be, perhaps, quite up to the mark of the old one; but that the appointees have all the nccessary qualifications for the positions assigned them?that they aro honest, capable and faithful to the Constitution?no one will pretend to deny. There are. doubtless, many Democrats in each locality who possess equal ability and equal merit with those who have won the honors ; but at the same time, it is not easy to see how a wiser choice, on the whole, could have been made. The President inay well congratulate himself upon the wisdom of his selections in Maine. An important duty is now devolved upon the Maino Democracy. Their attention should be turned to the task of redeeming that State from the thraldom of Re publican partyisiu In the beneficent policy which Mr Buchanan has inaugurated lies the interests and honor of her people. That they will early discover this truth, and promptly avail themselves of its benefits, is a hopo to be cherished by every patriotic heart. The News bv the Texas ?We published on Friday last the flaming advices of Walker's alleged successes, received by the steamship Texas, without comment, though satisfied that very little oonfidence could rationally be placed ui*>n them. Subsequently we have carefully examined the more sober publications of the news this steamer brought?the second day's bulletins of the New York journals, made up from investigation among those of her passen gers whose statements are more reliable than those invariably first put forth by parties in the interest of the filibustering cause on each suc ceeding arrival. The reader will remember that from the first hour that victims for Walk er's schemes have been sought in the Atlantic aud Gulf States down to this moment, all the earliest bulletins of his battles have heralded them as immense filibustering victories with inconsiderable loss, and great slaughter of the enemy. And, further, that in every instance their truth has been disproved to the satisfaction of all. \\ ith these facts fresh in memory, we could not reasonably avoid receiving the news of these last wonderful military achievements on the part of Walker and the diseased and starving filibusters still kept in his custody by fear of his invariable remedy for all their efforts at self-pre?ervation (hia order te shoot them) cum grano salis, and with tongue in cheek As sifted by such of the New York papers as seek promptly to publish true accounts of affairs in Nicaragua, we cannot perceive that there is any ground for placing the leant confidence in the wonderful details by telegraph which the Star contained on Friday. The Texas did nut stop at San Juan del Norte on her way from Aspinwall home, and the wonderful news came to her via Panama, having been brought to that point by the Orizaba Mr. Edward Avery, one of the passengers from San Francisco, savs : I learned from Consul Priest [at San Juan "del Sur?En. J and the officers of the United Slate* sloop-of-war St. Mary*, at San Juan del Sur. that they knew nothing about Walker s condition or prospects, having had no communication what ever for three-weeks pa.?t with him. Walkers men there boasted that he had ><00 men. but there were no grounds for such a statement. There were frequent rumors of tights, in which Walker was said to have killed hundreds, while he lost but few or no men himself. But this was an old story, told only by Walker's men. which nobody credited any more. From all I could learn of Walker's inen, they had in camp been furnished a half-pint of corn, plantains, and some little fresh bt'pf a day j but provision* were getting scarce. There was hardly anybody at San Juan del Snr to form an opinion as to Walker's pros pects. The place was once very lively and thriv ing. but now it is almost deserted. Capt. Fas soyx. of the Nicaraguan navy, went with us to Panama on the Orizaba. Hp a small, smart, intelljyent-looking fellow, of very dark complex ion. There were only four or live men left on the war-schooner Nicaragua. Noneof Walker'smen. with the above exception, came with us to Pana ma from San Juan del Sur. as the steamer's folk do not favor desertion, and Walker's oftl-ers search every vessel that leaves port. A man was discovered and taken ashore as an attempted de serter, and they said he would be shot. Several of his m? n who came on board privately expressed a wish to stow themselves away; but they dared not. Col Waters came doxr* with an escort of Itxty rangers the ni^kt aft-.r our arrival*, and an hour be fore vt left, With fiiijtulchcs from Waller for Xew York. At Aspinwall there were a large number of de serters from Walker in a destitute c? ndition who wanted to get away but had no means, and did not appear to have any prospect of lettering their condition. The Texas was waiting for us at As. pinwall. and we came un to New York without touching at San Juan del Norte. On her down trip however she touched there and brought about a dozen of \\ al ker's officers from Greytown, they having abandoned the attempt to force a wav to W alkcr from this side Among these officers were Major Hall and Captain Farnsworth of New , or"\Yri|o, it appears got into some dispute with Lock ridge and threw up their commissions in fiSPV- *ro,m "V1"" ?* thp H**n who had ljeen with hockridge 1 learned that at the last time he Texas touched at Greytown, the forces under him and Anderson were at Puenta Arenas fit Him? out another expedition against San Carlos 1 could not learn with certainty that tney had taken Castillo, as the reports were very contradictory. I should think that Walker cannot hold Rivas much longer. Our impression is that the despatches from Walker^ for New York, which were contrived to be pfaced on board the Orizaba an hour be fore she left San Juan del Sur (according to custom) are at the bottom of our telegraphic news on Friday last; those on the steamer on this side interested in supplying Walker with fresh subjects for immolation, having, of course, received their share of them. Another San Francisco passenger by the Ori zaba. says: -We left San Francisco on the 5<h ult on Imard the steamship Orizaba, her regular dav of sailing was not until the 20th. but in consequence of some information received, an unexplained mystery, she sailed 15 days earlier. Some of the passengers intimated that it was in order toatford relief as soon as possible. We reached San Juan del Sur on Thursday, Iflth of March, and then beard that Walker had fought a great battle, in which he lost about .50 or 60 killed, while it was said that the enemy acknowledged having had about 3W killed, but Walker's men insisted that ltetween 6 u and 700 of the allied troops we e left dead upon the battle-field. The battle was r> - ' ported to have lasted iwo days, the 15th ard 16th ult. But from conversation which I bad h the Amertean Consul?Priest, and Dr. Flint, 1 ? ; disposed to place vsry little confidence in be statement A gentleman residing there, and witfe ] whom f have been lonjf untainted, wbe* |??***) him for the true state of affaire, remarked to me ? "You know that Walker never ban more than two or three killed and half a dozen wounded whHe the enemies are popped off by hundreds/' Consul Priest also Informed me that of the 75 men who comc down from San Francisco on the pre vious tfip of the Orizaba, 40 were cut to pieces by the Costa Rlcan troops. Dr. Flint, of i*an J nan suf, tnld me that Gen. Saunders, whileoa his waw to relieve Col. Caycee. was most handsomely whipped by the Costa Rican forces, who came "R"""? ch^*ed with teyonet equal to the best drilled European troops. A young man who had kept a public house at Virgin Bay, and with whom I berime aoqaintrd in Decemljer list at the latter place, informed me that his establish ment had own entirely broken up; that Virgin j Bay and the steamers were in possession of The ali ies; that e>ery place was completely dev:istoted. and nothing could !*? got toeat. What Walker's rangers could not get conveniently was taken by the Greasers (Costa Rican-.) Kven Walker's men. with the exception of the ranger*. fared very badly. Their food principally consisted of | mule flesh and green plantains, but that had also i beeonie exhausted. The young man was a gtx>d I reliable friend of Walker's, and for that reason I felt satisfied of the truth of his statements. ??On a former occasion I had some letters put in my possession for Col. Rogers, of Walker's ar my, but fearing I might be caught with them upon me I destroyed them; and having under stood that Col. Rogers was on board of the Orii aba I tried to see ITlm for the purpose of explain ing the matter to him, and in the course or some conversation with a friend of Col. Rogers relative to this point, 1 gathered some information as re gards Walker's present position at Rivas. The j gentleman alluded to said that Walker could I hold Rivas if he would stay there, but he would ! now and then turn out to attack the enemy and get his small force cut up, so that he had now only about 400 fighting men and 2<Kl sick and wounded. But he was in a d?d tight place and without provisions, at least so much so that he had been compelled to commence killing their milch cows, and must cave in unless he could get supplies from some source or other very soon. In alluding to the great number of men who had de serted Walker, he said it was too bad that so many of his best men had left him, but you know said he, "that $12 was enough to induce one of his officers to run away, let alone his men" (the Costa Ricans giving each deserter from Walker *1'2 in addition to paying his passage to the States.) The Orizaba brought down '21 men for Walker, but on their arrival at Ban Juan del Sur, Walker's officers were obliged to send to the steamer for food to feed them with that night, there not being enough ol>tainable on shore to give them for their suppers. The New York Tribune says : " We had a personal interview with Major Hall, who had just arrived from Nicaragua last night! He says that atlaire on the San Juan are the same as by the previous steamer. The Costa Ricans still nold Castillo, and the Americans are at Pun ta Arenas, waiting for something to turn up. It would appear that the constant arrival of recruits on this side is operating unfavorably for Walker's interests, when officers say that as nothing can lie done, it was better to come home than stay there consuming the rations. How do those who are forced to stay there fare ?" In our judgment, the truth concerning the state of affairs there at latest advices is to be drawn from the quotation* made above, rather thau from the so characteristic " first account'' sent to us on Friday last by telegraph. Nous verruns. City Sewerage ?The object now most de sired, is to remedy the difficulty existing from having for some time past used the sewers constructed for draining the cellars, Ac , as the means of emptying water closets, until they havo become thoroughly saturated with offen sive matter. To effect this object, we recom mend that the city authorities construct circu lar brick sewers, of eighteen inches diameter, commencing at F street, or where the first slope to the canal may require, and extending down each street to the canal from Fifteenth street west, and where they may be needed on the line of the Avenue, to the Capitol. These sew ers (to be used only for water closets and slops) may be commenced one foot below the surface, thus obtaining five feet more fall than the cel lar sewers can possess, insuring a rapid and clean drainage. These sewers should have no connection with the streets by openings for any purpose. If properly constructed, they will not require other cleansing than tho water used in the closets, soap suds, Ac., will accom plish. To insure this condition, all sinks con necting with the sewers should be protected by strainers and traps to prevent large objects be ' ing thrown in or the escape of offensive gases. This regulation'should be protectod bylaw j In one month the sewers may be constructed and in full operation, the expense of which, to ! each house, would bo so trifling as not to be : worth consideration when placed in comparison ; with health and comfort. No effort, either by i trupping the cellar sewers on the surface of the i ground, or the small drains at the bottom of the cellars, will avAil. They must be used for sur face water or cellar drainage only ; if used for any other purfiose they become a nuisance for want of sufficient fall. The city authorities must expect great oppo sition from those who have unlawfully connect ed their water closets with the drainage sewers. Much is expected of the City Councils as protec tors of the Metropolis, by guarding the health of the government officers, and consequently the archives of the nation. Where so much is at ; stake and so little is required to insure all that is necessary, we feel confident that every man will do his duty in this matter. To appoint a committee to examine tho sub ject and devise plans for remedying tho evil, wiil iusure success. AproIXTMEMTS BY THE president.?John A. Appltton, of Maine.

Hard to Pi.ease.?The opposition presf does not seem to bo entirely satisfied with the dispo sition which the President thinks proper to make of the federal offices. But ihis cannot bo helped. Mr. Buchanan has his own way of do ing things, and is not very apt to consult the wishes of his opponents. That he has been ve y fortunate thus far is quite evident. The dem ocratic papers from all parts of the country give the most ample assurance of this fact.
