EVENING STAR. ' WASHIIGTOKI CITY: THI'RKDAV April 9, 1MT. SPIRIT OF THE MORXIXQ PRESS. The 1 null iff net r says : ?' The brief summary which we subjoin from a ?fry considerate contemporary of a number of foreign matter* in which onr country is more or lees concerned, Is admonitory, if not formidable. It shows that the experienced and venerable statesman at the head of our foreign bureau hat enough before him to occupy his thoughts, if uot hands The sky is yet clear and the weather ealm ; but there is no knowing in what quarter a cloud may suddenly appear, and the wary helms man keeps his eves open : 11 Prom tke Alentnelrin Gazette. " ' Our foreign relations now claim no inconsid erable share of attention, and the movements of other Powers In matters touching our interests re quire the constant vigilance of our Government.

The editor has made a brief synopsis of the interesting and note-worthy features of all voyages in that quarter of the globe, from that of the Cabot* to Dr Kane's, that having heen recorded in print, have fixed themselves in the memory of the learned. Mr. Sar geant has performed his task with ability; for his style, as displayed in this work, is sueciut, clear, and didsetfc, and his skill in the selection of the points in each voyage to be described, has been admirable lie has evidently compiled to hit the taste of the million?to make the book sell. That it will -.ell very extensively ia cer tain, because there iacompre3sed in its 480 pages, an amount of entertaining, useful and substan tial information that must make it a welcome visitor at every well ordered fire-side, and a permanent resident on the shelf of many thou sand libraries.

Tns Roorback Exploded.?We take from the New York Herald of the day before yes terday. the two following letters from General Persifer F. Smith, which bear out entirely our late refutation of Gov. Geary's roorback con cerning the orders of the late Secretary of War to General Smith, not to furnish him (Geary) with troops when in Kansas. It will be perceived, that, as we predicted, they were refused to him by Gen. Smith bo cause the grounds of his demands for them were not lawful?legitimate?and for that reason alone. Never was engineer more effectually hoisted by his own petard, than is Geary, by the upshot of his effort to bring General Davis into disfavor by telling '? fibs" upon him to Washington letter writers aud others. GOVERNOR IttART AND JKF PKRSON DAVIS?QE1. SMITH AND THE WITHDRAWAL OF THB UNITED STATES TROOPS FOR KANSAS. Washington, April 6, 1857. It was stated several days ago in the Herald, on the autho Ity of liov. Geary, that he lost all support in Kansas from the Pierre administration hy the withdrawal of the United States troops from that Territory by orders froin the War De partment. This statement has brought out the following letters: GEN. SMITH TO GOV. GKARY. Heibqcartcrs Department of thk West. ) Fort Leavenworth, Feb. 11, 1857. J His Excellency J. W. Ge*rt. Governor of Kansas, Lecompton. K. T. Governor?I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 9th inst., in whicn yon ?? require immediately two additional eomf a nies of Dragoons to report to yon in consequence of your confidence that theie is a conspiracy on foot to disturb the peace,''?and also acknowl edge the receipt of a previous letter requiring a battalion to tie sent to yon in view of the large immigration expected here in the soring. If vou refer to the laws vou will observe that the President is authorized to call the military and naval forces into action to: 1st, repel inva sion ; 2d, to suppress insurrection, and 3d, to re press combinations to obstruct the execution of the laws, too strong for the civil power. Insults or probable breaches of the peace do not author ize the employment of the troops. Besides, all the forces here have just been de?ig nated by the Secretary of War, and are under or ders for other service'more distant; and even the companies near you will have to be recalled. They are sufficient to repress any breach of the peace, and I caunot move them until the weather Im proves. But even they are to lie employed to aid the civil authority only in the contingencies mention ed in the laws above referred to. The garrisons to l>e left in the Territory will be available if the President directs their employment. The contingency under which the troops were acting I consider to have ceased. Without the grossest imprudence on the part of the civil au thorities in Leavenworth. 1 see not the slightest probability of any disturbance there, and on in quiry I can hear of none from various inhabitants. With the highest respect, your obedient servant, Persifer F. Smith. Brevet Major General Comm'g. OEN. SMITH TO JEFFBRSON DAVIS. Baltimore, March 25,1^57. Hon. Jefferson Davis, Senator: Dear Sir?I received a letter a few minutes since from the editor of the Kvening Star, requesting me to ?? substantiate a rontradiction you #ake to some assertion in the Herald of Governor Geary." 1 happen to have my letter book, and sepd you a copy of my letter to the Governor when he "re Suired" a squadron of dragoons to besenttohim [e had already Capt. Newby's and Capt. Flint's companies of troops under his control, and he stated no case that would justify reinforcing them in the middle of the winter. I declined sending them, evidently without vour Interference in the matter, for you were in Washington. His letter is of the 9th of February and iny answer of the 11th. I exercised the discretion left me by the President, for I saw there was no need of tnem I send the copy to you. for I do not think my self at liberty to publish part of an official corres pondence without authority froin higher authori ty Moreover. I think your simple contradictiou is sufficient; the affair'will not offer to Governor Geary any advantage in pursuing it, unless he provoke* proof of what the Herald savs, and that is on record in the Department of the West. I have copies of my letters, but his are on file in the office of the Department of the West. I repeat, that with mv knowledge of all that took place the Governor'will not purse the mat ter. With sincere respect, your obedient servant, Persifer F. Smith, Bt. Mai. General Comm'g Dep't of the West. I would have been down to dav, but am hardly strong enough. 1 will be in Washingtou on Mon day. The reader will perceive that in publishing these letters, the Herald is forced to rub its own nose in the dirt, ad it were. Hon. John A. McClernand?It has been stated that prominent Democrats of Illinois have pre.-ented the name of this gentleman to the President for the mission to Russia. Always consistent in his political course, be has com bined the characteristics of a gentleman with the experience of the statesman We well re member the distinguished position which he held as the chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the House of Representatives, and the able and satisfactory manner in which he dis charged his honorable duties. We donbt not that he would well represent his country in a foreign land. Our object in this notice is mere ly to bear testimony to the character of a man, of whom the Springfield Register truly says : " The Democracy of Illinois will be rejoiced to learn that the valuable services and eminent talents of this gentleman (J. A. McC.) are ap preciated at Washington.'' ' Disortntled?Our aimiable aud always s-j i courteous coteinporary of the New York Her aid. is exceedingly disgruntled by what we took occasion so say a few days sinoe in exposure of the nonsense in his " papper," purporting to have been telegraphic advices from this city, de scriptive of alleged interviews between Lord Napier, the President, and other functionaries, wherein their conversations concerning Chinose affairs were reported. Our few sentences in this connection. evidently touched Bennett '* to the raw," as way be gathered from the " first rate notice" they caused him to accord to the Star on the day before yesterday, as follows: " The Washington Star (the little kitchen or gan of the late Administration, which went out of the hack door of the White House on the same Uay that poor Pierce departed by the frost door.) makes itself very officious in discrediting the iV Washlngton dispatches in the He mlcl upon CLinfie affair*. In reply, we have toiay that thonedetpaiche* were substantially trn?*that the interviews and conversations reported as occurring between I ord 1 Sapleron lh?on? .M?, ,?d i Cass and Mr. \\ alk?r, respectively, on the other f did take place ; as also the friendly internum? of Mr. Seward in behalf of Mr. Walked h? proper man to send to China. W? have also to aay that our authority In the matter of the?? afore said dispatches U unimpeachable, and nearer to the official bead sources of information than any that are ever vouchsafed to the Washington or gans of poor Pierce. The pulfer and blower of (be Star Is especially an outside loafer upon the Government since the evacuation of poor Pierce, and as such he is likely to remain. Mr. Buchan an's memory, no doubt, extends behind the Cin cinnati Convention." What better proof of the correctness of the information in the Htrald we were foroei to explode, can the world want, than Bennett's ?oImui asseveration, M abort ? Didn't b? ?wear by all that's honest, to the value of ? Parka* VX* and "Potosi>" Did he ever publish f line concerning the late Administra tion's oonsultations and acts, and concerning James Buchanan and the Democracy in the lata eamrass, that has not turned out to be the truth Aim'l the Herald, in fine, the very model of truth ? Knowing, as Bennett must know, how implicitly the world has reason to believe In the truth of every thing appearing in the Her mid ooncerning public affairs, our only wonder it that he ceased burnishing, for the instant, the somewhat rusty buttons on that diplomatic suit he oaused to be made for him ?elf in Paris when " slushing'' poor Pierce in the hope of coaxing out of him, after that fash ion, the mission to France, to treat the Star to the compliments he here bestows on it. The Stars mission is no less surely to expose the mendacity, charlatanism and impudence of such aspirations as his after that French em bassy, than the entire want of foundation of such mischievous roorbacks as those he vouches for concerning our affairs with China. He may yelp at us, as in the extract we quote above, throughout his whole paper, and he will still find that a brief contradiction in the Star of the truth of any one of the Herald s wonder ful Washington stories, will extinguish it, in ?tanter, in public estimation. By-the-by; he la throwing away labor in bur nishing up the buttons of that old diplomatic ooat of hia?for if the Herald does nought for the next year but puff, puff, puff the Adminis tration, he will be no nearer at the end of it, than when "poor Pierce" was in the White ilou3e, to the realization of the embassy to Franoe. Answers to Queries.?A subqg riber, an en listed United States soldier at a distant post, i writes us the following letter : . Editor of the Star: Sir: Would you please to f answer the following questions in your werkly, for lUe benefit of your Army readers and for the l?enefit of your enlisted readers in particular : Are officers of the Ariny allowed enlisted men to act as waiters ? 2. Can an enlisted man be compelled, ao/miro ? lens, to become an officer's servant. j 3. What amount of pay is an enlisted waiter en titled to, besides the regular pay allowed by the j I'nUed States for his services as a soldier * ? 4. I? it consistent with Army regulations for i "oldiers, on coming ofT guard, to be compelled to I chop and saw wood for officers and officers' mes | ses, being at the same time reported as performing | garrison police? 5 Are men who have enlisted to act as soldiers (and who find themselves compelled to perform , theabove four duties, besides working every day in lieu of performing the duty of soldiers,) bound j to fulfill their engagement? 6 Are men prohibited, by regulation, from re porting the maltreatment they receive from offi. I cers, to their superior officers ? And if not, why do < ompany officers prevent men from doing so ? Sir. you can obtain information concerning the above six questions at the Adjutant General's office, through some of your reporters. ( By complying with the above request you will | confer an obligation on hundreds, who, for the ' prewent, must remain Naxuem. U. 8. Armt, February 26, 1957. To his question No. I wc answer, no. To No. 2. no. To No. 3, no increase of pay whatever. | To No. 4, no. I To No. 5. wo have to answer, that all who | enter the Government service are of course bound to fulfill any oaths they may take on so doing. The safe path of honor and duty, is for a soldier who has cause of complaint against a superior in the service, to obey the obnoxious order first, and then to remonstrate or to send to the authority higher than that officer (through the latter, that he may have an opportunity to reply to it) a formal complaint of his alleged grievance. To the first branch of the 6th query we have also to answer no. And, further, that any en listed man on proving the truth of such an alle gation as is embraced in the latter clause (of this 6th qttery) against an officer of hisoompany. will cause his prompt punishment. How to proceed, to that end, we have previously ex plained above. - The Art Association Exhibition.?Very recently a few gems have been added to this collection which greatly increase its interest to the amateur. One is a portrait of Mrs. John | Slidell. of Louisiana, by Healey, which strikes us as that skillful and practiced artist's chef <1 autre. Besides embracing a striking like nc3?, as a composition, it is the finest picture we have yet seen from his easel. Its finish is replete with the results of his twenty-five years' patient professional study and labor in the best European schools. It is original throughout, and if surviving for a cen tury, will rank its author among tho masters of his noble art. Artists, like saints, are never appreciated by their own generation; and yet we must be so unfashionable as to declare that as a work of art, we do not know that we ever saw anything handed down for centuries as a great picture, that struck us more forcibly than that to which we here refer. Dr. Stone's basso relievo (in marble) of Chief Justice Taney, is classical to a fault, and is no less perfect as a likeness, than in its execution As a sculptural study it may indeed be gazed on by one of taste profitably, for hours. Reappointments.?We hear of sundry re appointments by the President on which, we sincerely believe, the Democratic party is to be congratulated We refer to those of Chas. Gor don Green of the Boston Post, to be the Naval Officer for the port of Boston; Benj MeCullouch to be U. 8. Marshal for the Eastern District of Texas; and Sam'l D Hay to be U. 8. District Attorney there. Also, that of Joseph W. Gray, of the Plain dealer, to be Postmaster at Cleveland, Ohio. Thomas Miller, of whom we do not know, has also been appointed Postmaster at Columbus Ohio, vice Thomas Sparsda, whose commission expired. The Recent Connecticut Elections is an event of political significance and import ance Besides resulting in a Democratic gain of two members of Congress, that party gain an aggregate of some six thousand in the popu lar vote since last fall. It has, therefore, achieved a substantial victory of which its friends in the Government here may well be proud. Presents to the Executive.?The ship Lotus, from Hong Kong, arrived in New York very recently bringing five packages of presents from the King of Siam to the President of the I ntted States, which, we presume, will reach " ashington to-day. The Chinese Mission.?An impression pre vails among those best informed usuallv in such matters, that Wm. B. Reed, Esq., of Phil adelphia. will hardly consent to accept the Chi nese mission. - The Naval Court or Inquiry.?The sick ness of the Judge Advoeate prevented a session of this court to-day.
