EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITTi WEDNESDAY April ??. 1?37. SPIRIT OF THE mowing press The lvtetUftnctr quotas, with indicatiors of Jtfl confidence in the correctness of the state ments embraced therein. a letter from the Washington correspondent of the New York Evtmug Post, detailing the particulars of the Interesting interview between the President and the committee of Boston merchants who come to Washington not long since to look after the interest of their city's commerce with China, as involved in our Government's future course to wards that of the Celestial Empire. Having ?urself every reason to confide in the statements of the P**t'a correspondent on this subject, we quote what he publishes as the remarks of the President to the committee, as follows : ?' Mr. Buchanan also intimated to the commit t?wt that, in accordance with their desire, a Com missioner should be sent to China, clothed with special powers to obtain such more liberal terms of commercial relations with that country as may be deemed practicable. It I* understood that the President concur* in the wishes of the French and F.nvlish Government* in reference to the con cessions to be sought from China by the leading Power*, so far as such wish*** have been indi cated by their respective Ministers at Washing ton. Tne suggestion made by the commercial delegation meets his approval. It proposes a union for the purpose of obtaining a direct facc to face negotiation with the Kmperor himself, in <*! tiding. of course, the appointment of a full Minister at Pekin. ?? The mercantile delegation at the White llousc unanimously urged the name of ex-Attorney Gen eral Cushing. who, as commissioner, had neijo. tinted our first diplomatic convention with China, and, although the President is not apparently disposed to favor anv of the intimate friends o1 his predecessor, he has signified a readiness tc yield to the application.** The Unitnt, speculating over the probabl< political phase of the next House of Represent atives, holds, that with the so recent gain ol Arnold in Connecticut, and the probability ol the eloction of a Democrat in the place of Mr Erenton. deceased, from Indiana, the Demo crats will have the chamber; as the five more gains required to that end are obtainable fron the Southern States yet to elect. We sincerely hope that such may be the grand result of th< approaching Spring elections. As we go tc press we have advices of the gain of anotbet member from Connecticut. WASHING TON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The Co!c*rcTirvT Elettiox.?At noon to day, we received the following special despatch fr^m a party in who^e advices wc place entire confidence : Hvairosp. Cr., 10a in April fc, 1*57 _ Editor of ?k*. Star: Hollev. Republican, it ejected Governor by about 1.IWH majority. Both brac^hes of the Leyi>lature are Fusiou Bi?hop and Arnold, Democrat*, and Clark and Dean, Know \othiu?; Republicans, are elected to Con gress, . K ?The efforts of abolitionism toelutch Kansas, which have within the last fortnighl heen renewed with intense ardor, (judging from the columns of the journals in its interest.) prove clearly to our mind that it is well aware of the immensity of the stake fur which it plays; and also that it is perfectly reckless of the ultimate consequences of its success in that game. The mere question of the exis tence of ulavery in that far off Territory can not be, ptr xe the cause of the remarkable expenditure of money and of the time of the thousands on thousands in the non-slaveholding States who have wholly or in part devoted themselves to the mission of making Kansas nou-slavebolding?not a bit on't. Upon the fu ture character of the institutions of Kansas, we sincerely believe, hinges the solution of the problem of the Union's duration. That will last so long a* the balance of power shall be so kept up as that the whim or will of the majority may not usurp the place of constitution and law. in the action of the General Government Once let the opinion generally prevail throughout the South that hope of the observance of the obligations of the constitution between the see t>ons is no longer to be rationally entertained, and with well nigh unanimous accord her peo ple will look to the first law of nature?self preservation , and to that end only. Time was, and within our own remembrance too. when no American statesman dreamed of admitting States into the Union except by pairs; a policy so necessary for the preservation of the balance of power among the sovereigns of the Confederacy upon which their harmony hinged. Under the influence, we sincerely believe, of the policy of the General Government for the most part, that wise rule has been abandoned, and one great section has obtained a majority in both Houses of Congress, over the other. From the hour of the abandonment of that polijy down to the present day the fury of anti-South ern sectionalism has been increasing in the Na tional legislature, until doctrines whieh thirty years ago would have been universally con demned as involving the certain destruction of the Confederacy if carried out bj the General Government, are now almost alone to be heard from the lips of popularity-hunters in the non-slave holding States. The right of a peo pie. who have adopted the institutions common to all the State- when the Confederacy was formed, to demand entrance into the Union, is denj?*d. we fear by a majority of the voters of the non-slave holding States, and holds sway ky the meagrest conceivable majority in the House of Representatives, if at all. only through the joint action of the unanimous South and a handful of patriotic northern statesmen of suffi cient nerve to brave public opinion in their section in discharge of their high public trust. What is to stay the increase of the power of anti-slavery, which must be stayed if the Con federacy is to hang together ? Sorely, not suc cess in its progressive aggressions. Not the in cream.-of palpable proofs of its i>ower to work its will. It struggles for Kansas as it does, because k*>w,ng that her obtainment places it firmly on the sure line of its intended future opera tions against the institution of negro slavery throughout the whole South Suppose it carries the day there' Missouri will then be surrounded on three sides-North East and West-with non slaveholding States ;' while she is bordered on the South with a slave holding (Indian) territory, worth little to the South as such, because from more or less of the attributes of i* condition, its fa*tne*se, (long to continue such) can hardly fail to become harbors for her runaway slaves, and those of Mississippi, Tenne*-?ec, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas; Kansas being, in the meanwhile, from the character of the Northern population thrust into it for political ends. ;w ultra au ub. olition State as Massachusetts herself.

When that falls, where is heT refuge from the infuriated hostility of abolitionism as preached from a thousand pulpits weekly, spouted from as many stumps and lecture rooms, and printed in a thousand newspaper* daily? The patriotic policy of the late Admlnfetra ; tion with reference to Kanwo. it always struck us, was based on a thoughtful appreciation of the state of things that will surely ari? throaf hout the South when that outwork, as explained above, may have fallen into the enemy s hands. We are for the preservation of the Union with all our heart and soul; and we regard the defeat of ' the stupendous efforts that abolitionism is es saying to make the Territory its own, as the key to the accomplishment of its preservation. ? ? In the adoption of its far-seeing policy in j this connection, the late Administration planted itself widely, indeed, on the true principle of the Constitution?on that of the right of the people of each sovereign of the Confederacy to manage their own domestic concerns without let or hindrance from others. They had no constitutional warrant to go further in protect ing the right. Going even 50 far. subjected them to a degree of temporary unpopularity at the North that cost the Democracy the loss of State after State. Nevertheless, they persevered in their noble work of bringing what is left of the northern Democracy fairly and squarely on to the true constitutional platform. They rescued the great principle of the Constitution, then in imminent danger of being annihilated there, and rallied to its defence the nuclcus of what, wc hope, is again to prove, in due time, a majority of the non-slaveholding States. With such views of the importance of the ques tion ?oon to be settled in Kansas, the Star's readers will not wonder that we are just now derating so large a portion of its columns to its ? consideration. Real Progrkss ?The rccent completion of the construction of the remaining link of the communication by rail from Memphis, Tennes see. to Savannah, Georgia. is an event of great coinmcrcial importance; one, too, on which those immediately interested in the prosperity of the South and Southwest are sincerely to be congratulated. This line of railway, which now extends (in its whole length) from Portland, ' Maine, via New York, Washington, Richmond, Wilmington, N. C., Augusta, Savannah, Athens. Montgomery. Chattauooga and Nashville to Memphis, is by long odds the most extensive in the United States; while at certain seasons it offers far more advantages to the traveler pass ing from North to South, and East to West, and vie' wrxa? than either of the routes so far open north of it As far north as Washington city ! lies, we are destined to enjoy no advantages j of commerce upon this line, of series of lines. I Those are to accrue to the cities through which ! it passes Yet every new railroad opened, indi rectly helps to swell the prosperity of the Fede ral Metropolis, by increasing the facilities and decreasing the time necessary and the expense of coming to and returning from Washington in Washington's " season " We have often heretofore refered to the fact that this Metropolis is fast becoming the winter resort of persons of good taste, wealth and lei sure in all quarters of the Union. Knowing that the increase of this custom is the increase of the prosperity of onr own fellow-citiiens en gaged in every branch of trade, we watch its inarch, or rather the growth of this disposition, with unfeigned solicitude, and hail the comple tion of additional facilities for concentrating such a temporary population at this point dur ing the season, with great joy indeed. The next event of the kind we shall be called on to chronicle, if to be the completion of the no less important grand railroad chain from Alex andria to this same city of Memphis, which is to be un fait accompli probably in less than eighteen months from this date Its route tra verse* the finest and most interesting portion of the North American continent, though up to this time it is less known to tourists or commerce thau any other trans-Alleghany road or line of intercommunication. From it* termini, along it* whole line. lands are destined to advance in value with rapidity equal to that with which real estate advance* at times in the Northwest; because, while it is held in comparatively large tracts, is susceptible of very economical agri cultural improvement, and is thinly settled, the previous entire absence of economical moans of intercourse between it and navigation, inland or seaward, rendered it in a great measure profit less. industrially The region traversed by the Illinois Central Railroad, it will be remembered, until the construction of that work, was value less for useful purposes. The opening of it 4,up" to market* has already rendered it one of the most thriving sections of the Union; and its strides forward are, day by day, month by month, and year by year s>o rapid as even to astonish those most immediately interested, pe cuniarily. in its future. The mineral wealth, the facilities for profita ble stock raising and farming. Ac , embraced in the hitherto well nigh sealed-book of western Virginia and eastern Tennessee about to be de veloped by the opening of this great line of which the Orange and Alexandria and Virginia Central railroads form the eastern termini, are quite as great as the resources of the country traversed by the Illinois Central railroad ; and in many respects the inducements for a large and enterprising population to flock from a dis tance in order to avail themselves of those fa cilities are far greater. Among those induce ments are vastly superior advantages of health and climate, that never fail to tell in the long run on the commercial history of a country. We expect to see, if living many years longer, the line of this great central artery of the con tinent rapidly becoming (with its advantages of 'ron. coal, water-power, rich valleys of. as yet, almost unturned soil, and its multitude of rail roads that must be constructed from this main line penetrating north and south at nearly right angles to it) the manufacturing region for Virginia. Kentucky. Tenne^ee, Georgia. Ala bama, Mississippi and Arkansas. With the in terior of all these States, its facilities for the transportion of heavy and bulky freights?sta ple manufactures of wood. iron. Ac.. Ac?will be superior to those of any other manufacturing region of the United States. We look to rail roads throughout the South, and more espe cially to the completion of the grand line on which we are now commenting, as the iwans of removing from her the commercial and indus trial disabilities that have resulted from the a loption by the General Government in 1816 of the misnamed American system, in which we recognize nothing but an ingenious method of compelling the slaveholding section of the confederacy to labor for the profit of the non rtlaveitoldiug Atlantic States. We have no idea that such was the design of it* illustrious au thor; but that such has been its practical re sult, we feel convinced. A Mistake.?A Washington corre*i?ondent of the New York 1It raid is signally in error in paying that the Government propose to recall Mr. Forsyth from New Mexico, and to substi tute for him Gov. Price of New Jersey. How ever much it might be gratified with an oppor tunity to confer an important ponition abroad on Gov. P. we feel very sure that the particular change indicated by the Hera/4'* correspondent haa not been dreamed of in official circles here. Awarded.?The Secretary of the Interior bat awarded to Cassidy A Iligginv granite rfit ter*, of this city, the contract for the granite work on the north front of Um Patent Office Extension, their bid bring regarded the moit advantageous* to the Gorernmew The i^pe gate amount of their contract will be some $60,000. Messrs Cassidy and Higgins are granite cut tars by trade, and for year? past hare been con tractor ? foremen in the same building. They are entirely competent, and being inost deserv ing citisens, we rejoice that they thus become master workmen of Washington city. The contract for the marble work on the sam front of the same building has been awarded to J. F. Conolly, of Baltimore, now a contractor upon the Post Office extension. The aggregate amount of this new contract with him will reach j perhaps $75,000 Ektered the Lists!?We hear thai out j friend and fellow-citiien, Gen. William Henry ; Birch, the empresorio of Fourteenth street | " Tattersall's," has duly entered himself foi , the prise of the District of Columbia Marshal ship. The General'is proverbially a fast 'un; as well as a good 'un to go, and a safe 'un to bet on in whatever he undertakes. As hii 41 time" is rarely under " two forty," it will be well for his rivals to look sharp to their heels, wind and condition ere venturing down the last quarter's stretch, with him as a competitor foi the prise. Tub Mission to China.?We have every rea son to believe that the President has tendered to the Hon. Win. B. Reed, of Philadelphia, the now so very important mission to China, and sincerely hope that Mr. B. may feel at liberty to accept that position, in an enlightened, ener getic and sagacious discharge of the duties of which, at this time, the future of American com merce in the Chinese Seas is so deeply involv ed. Mr. Reed is one of the first public men of the country; competent, entirely so, for any po sition under the government. ? A Special Reception.?The ladies of the i families of the various gentlemen of the diplo matic corps, attended by the members thereof, called on the President la.?t evening between the hours of nine and ten o'clock, by previous arrangement.
