EVENING STAR WASHINGTON CITY: MONDAY April 13, lBi7. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Union. in an article upon " The Higher against the Constitution," gives the Rev. George B Cheever and his Sabbath discourses a pretty rough handling, and says in conclu sion : ?? Such folly. treason, and desecration of the pulpit and sacred office carries with It Its own antidote It teaches the duty of standing stead fast to the fundamental truths of the constitution, and calls forth devout gratitude that men holding such destructive sentiments have auch small in fluence. and cannot meddle with the sources of our safety, nor Influence those who hold in their hands the destiny of our nation." The IntfJlignirer is devoted to news and correspondence WASHINGTON NE\VS AND GOSSIP. Thk Nbw District of Colcmiia Codf ? This new system of laws for the District of Co lumbia has evidently been pre pored with great care indeed, and, so far as published, reflects undeniable credit on the gentlemen entrusted by the late Executive with the duty of its prep aration. It is the re?ult of intense labor and thorough knowledge of law and of the require ments in the matter of the law of this commu nity It appears from a note of Messrs. Ould and Cross appended to Part III., that the entin Code has been divided into four parts, to wit Part I. Of the internal administration of th< Government, being the miscellaneous part, am embracing &U subjects not appropriately falling under either of the other parts. This part, pre pared by Mr. Ould, has already been submitted and acted upon by the Revisors. Part II., prepared by Mr. Cross, treats of tb< acquisition, the enjoyment, and the transmis sion of property, real and personal, the domes tic relations, and other matters connected witl private rights. This part lias already been sub mitted and acted on by the Board of Revisors Ot Parts I. and II. we have had something b say heretofore. Part III., prepared by Mr. Ould, with th< exception of the chapter on Evidence, is nov submitted by the codifiers Part IV.. which is now being prepared bj Mr. Cross, is promised soon. ^ e resume, from our last, the consideratioi * of Part III.: The distinction between law and equity pleadings being abolished, the following pro vision has been adopted with reference to th< manner in which issues shall be tried, to wit: " An issue of law shall l>e tried by the court unless it be referred by consent. An issue of fac In any action for the recovery of money or of spe eiflc personal property shall be tried' by a jury unless a jury trial be waived, or a reference b< ordered All other issue* of fact shall be tried bi the court, subject to its power to order any issu< or issues to be tried by a jury, or referred '' I'nder this provision, parties may claim th< benefit of trial by jury, in all cases where hi existing law they are entitled to it. The jurj is to consist of twelve persons, unless the par' ties consent to a les.* number: and the parties may consent to a number not less than three. The following provisions are found in tht chapter under the head " of proceedings sup plementary to execution " While taken ii connection with the exemption law ihomesteac and other) they do not operate harshly on th? debtor, they will serve to render certain th? col.ection u( many debts which under existing laws are seldom paid : 1- When an execution against the prop erty of the judgment debtor, or any one of severa debtors1 in the same judgment, fa returned lin sati-fled. in whole or in part. the judgment cred ltor. after such return is made, shall be entitled t< an order, to be issued by the court, or any l id^i thereof, requiring *uch debtor to appear and an swer concerning his property before the court, 01 any judge thereof, at a time and place speeiie<j In such order. K ?? Sec. 2 After the issuing of an execution against property, and upon proof bv the affidavit of th? judgment creditor or otherwise, to the satisfac tion of the court, or any judge thereof, that th< judgment debtor has property which he unjustlv refuses to apply to the satisfaction of tLe jud<r. meat, the courf or judge may. bv order. r?jui? the judgment debtor to appear before the court or any judge thereof, to answer concerning th? same: and such proceedings may thereupon b? had for the application of the property of th< judgment debtor towards the satisfaction of tlw judgment as are prescribed by law.

Instead of the order reauiring the at tendance of the judgment debtor, as provided ii the two preceding sections. the court or judgt may. upon satisfactory proof, by affidavit of tE< party or otherwise that there is dinger of th< debtor leaving this District or concealing himsel to avoid said examination, issue a warrant re quiring the niarshai to arrest such deb'or anc bring h:m Wore the court or judge Ipon beini brought before ,he court or judge* be shaTbTe^ amined on oath, and other witneise. ma - ?* ?

Want of space to-day prevents as from con tinuing this subject. We shall recur to it again. The California Senatorial Election.? We some time sine? took occasion to explode the misrepresentations with roference to the circumstances attending the late election of the Hon. Win. M. (iwin to the Senate of the United States, which followed in the newspapers imme diately on the heel of that event. We find in a late number of the Union Democrat (of Cal ifornia) the following synopsis of a debate in the California Legislature, on this subject, which bears out to the letter our views upon this subject, and therefore republish It that the pablic may understand that ere writing on it we took due care to obtain satisfactory evidence of the truth of what we felt it to be our duty to say in the premises : [From the Uniou Democrat. Jan 31.] The Election or United States Senators. The opposition press all over the State has been endeavoring to create the impression that there wai a virtual understanding between the Sena tors. who are now on their wnv to Washington, and that the election of Dr. Gwin was secured, through the etTort* of Mr. Broderick. only upon condition that he should not interfere in the mat ter of Federal appointments in California. Such a charge, with Democrats, is a matter of no mo ment, for it falls harmless; bnt, for the gratifica tion of our readers in the Atlantic States more especially, and for the more immediate benefit of the opposition quidnuncs of this locality, we give the fallowing debate on the subject, which came up in the Assembly on Saturday last, on a ques tion of prIvileire. We should think the follow ing statements of the members who cast their vot^s for Dr. Gwin in caucus, amply sufficient and satisfactory for any unprejudiced mind. Upon those who'are determined to think differently, re gafdless of the facts, this public record will ha>e no effect: Mr. Estell said?Mr. Speaker. I find, in many of the newspapers of the day, attacks on the char acters of the two U. S. Senators whom we have but recently elected and sent on their mission to Washington Ordinarily, Sir, 1 should have passed this by unnoticed, for I do not believe it would have effected either of those gentlemen at home, but there is danger of its influence on the other side of the continent, where the character of the press on the Pacific sloj>e is almost unknown \\ e are all aware that the excitement connected with the recent election ha* never ln-en equalled within our knowledge, and that no two gentlemen in the State could have l**en successful without subjecting themselves to eve;y species of charge known to vituperation My object at this time. Sir. is to a?k the mem b<-rs*who changed their votes on the last iiallot and cast them for Dr. Gwin, to give this House and the Slate the r<*asons that influenced them in niakiug that change. It ha* been charged l>v a venal press, and circulated with amazing rapidi ty, that a bargain had been mad" lietween Mr. Broderick and Mr. Gwin. by which the former hed elected the latter, for and in consideration of the federal patronage, which Mr. Gwin aban doned in the premises. The object of this pro ceeding is to arrive at the truth, and at once, in the proper place, and by a statement froin the proper parties, either establish or disprove the whole story. It is well known. Mr. Speaker, that I was a f'iend to Mr. Broderick and voted against Mr. Gwin throughout the whole of the balloting. But. Sir, I have facts and circumgtanr es within my knowledge which induce me to disbelieve the whole story, and with the permission of the House I will relate some of them In the month of May, 1^55. and the day of the final adjournmant of the Legislature of that year. Dr. Gwin stated, in my presence, to a number of trentl?*meu that he would, at that moment, have Iteen ill possesion of his certificate of election if he had never interfered with federal patronage. He also stated that if he shonld ever be re-elected he intended to insist on his colleague taking charge of the appointments of the State of Cali fornia, whilst he should have a inore quiet and leasing duty in attending to her interests iu the lalls of Legislation. Since that time. Sir. I have repeatedly heard Dr. Gwin make the same decla rations. and learn from his friends that nothing has Iteen more common than their repetition. It may be. Sir. that the friends or Mr. Brode rick selected Dr. Gwin l>ecansc he entertained those opinions, or it may have l?cen because they desired to heal the difficulties which have existed in the ilemocndic party in this State, by electing the heads of the two factions, viz : the two Sena tors who are now on their wav to Washington. ?4 Before taking niy seat. Mr. Speaker." said Mr Kstell, ?' permit me to hope, that the gentle men who made the nomination o< Dr. Gwin, on the lltb inst.. will respond to this call, In such a manner that this question will lie settled forever, and in such a way that the charges will be fast ened upon the guilty, so that none can defend ; or give such proofs of their innocence, that the tongue of vituperation and slander, will forever be hushed." Mr. Hall said?An appeal having been made to me personally. 1 confess that I arise to respond without comprehending the object of my devout friend front Marin. This whole proceeding seems to me to be most extraordinary and irregular. 1 cannot understand why the gentleman, on this occasVon, seeks to convert this Assembly into a confessional To the interrogatory propounded, I have a simple, positive, anil direct answer: Throughout the Democratic caucus 1 gave my suffrage in selecting senatorial representation in the Federal Congres*. in accordance with the dic tates of my own judgment, the approval of iny conscience, and my well known and avowed C.references. In the final ballot, I supported the Ion. W. M Gwin for the sole and sufficient rea son, that in inv humble judgment, he was well qualified?on the wore of native ability, parlia mentary experience, and familiarity with tne po litical history of California, and the legislation pro|>er to promote her prosperity, rtnituntly qual iJifl above any competitor at that time, opposing his nomination. Mr. ClaBK (American) said he was astonished at this proceeding, and wished to know if this wais intended as a whitewashing for the two Sen ators we had so recently elected to the United States Senate > He had heard of no charges of a character that would authorize such a proceeding, and hoped the House would now adjourn. Mr Brknt said he arose more to express his astonishment at the conduct of the gentleman from Sacramento (Mr. Clark) than to say any thing no the subject before the House. He could not understand what object the gentleman had in trying to prevent this explanation. vt ^''T,tI-L (f'oin his seat)?1 can. Mr. Brkxt continued?Does the gentleman's party make these cliarges, and then attempt to prevent their refutation by interposing objections and making motion, to adjourn? It certainly VwSu? "*e H,u"' a"d wl" ~ *VnkTPr ?Uh thP was lost. Mk, lit.nt?I hope now the gentleman from Sacramento (Mr Clark) will allow me to proreT W hen I was interrupted. Mr **i**aker ssi.t Mr Hunt, I was about to give the reasons which in tliienced me to vote for Dr. Gwin on the ballot which nominated him. Then, iu the first place 1 will say, It was my intention to do so when i left home, and 1 should have cast my vote for him at an early period, If I had been left alone 1 do not like to be electioneered with, sir, and 1 am bound to say this was attempted by very young men. which somewhat disgusted me. Bnt, sir, I have another reason, and I might as well confb*K n. I am the friend of Mr. Broderick, and I had ntade an agreement with the delegation from Santa Barbara, my neighbors and friends, that we would all see my Broderick safe first, then if all looked right, we had long sines determined to vote for Dr. Gwin. Yes, sir, long before the meeting of this body. In conclusion, sir, permit me to say, that neither Mr. Broderick or his friend, or bis friend's friend, ever spoke to me concerning this vote. It was all gratuitous. It was because Dr. Gwin had made a good Senator, FERSOXAL. ....

Mrs. Polk, the esteemed widow of the ex President, has determined to reside in Washing ton during the next session of Congress. Here tofore, since her husband s death, with the exception of a visit in London at the time when Mr. Buchanan was the American minister there. Mrs. Polk has resided in Tennessee. It will be remembered that the deceased ex-President left to his widow the charge of taking care of and [mblishing his memoirs which, so far as they re ate to his administration, are said to be minute, full of interesting personal anecdote and abound ing iii reflections suggested by the state of public affairs and the canduet of his cabinet?.V.

I heard nothing of it, and an led to believe it is |11 purely imaginary. - Mr. Stkelk said heranie to represent his con stituents faithfully, and as far as possible carry out their wiahee. He had voted for Mr. McCorkle doting the many ballot in gs.because he knew him to be the choice of his people, and l>ecau?e the North was entitled to some consideration from the Legislature. He had. however, told Mr. Mc Corkle that evening, that if his vote could, at ?ny time, roafrr a nomination, he intended to give it. Not to please Mr. Broderlck. for he scarcly knew him. He was no Broderick man. and he could safely say that Mr. Broderick never had attempted, eiiher directly or indirectly, to influence him or any vote he ever gave. In'con clusion, he felt it bis duty to say, he never heard or saw anything that would justify the charge spoken of. yet he frankly admitted ne, in all pro bability, would have heard nothing of them if they had been true. Mr. Swf.kzy?I was one of the number who.in connection with my whole delegation, cast our last vote for Dr. Gwin. There was neither bar Kln, sale or corruption in that vote. We cast it cause it suited us and pleased our constituents. We had no understanding with Messrs. B-oderick or Gwin. nor could neither of them know that we intended so to vote. It is the privilege Mr. Speaker, that defeated parties always claim to complain when beateu. Certainly the successful can afford to indulge them. Then why should we be astonished at the feeling displayed * [The Reporter was compelled to a'bsent him self during the remainder of the time occupied by Mr. Sweezy.] 'Mr. Wood?1 was one of those who voted the two last ballots for Dr. Gwin, and I did it to please myself. It is true, the delegation from my county received a number of telegraphic dis patches requesting us to vote for Dr. Gwin for the short term, which perhaps had its weight with us. I voted for Mr. Latham several votes, but was always anxious to se# a nomination, and was ready at ail times to contribute to so desirable an end. In conclusion, 1 feel bound to say that I never heard of any trade or improper conduct on the part of either of the parties elected, and feel well aware there was none. Yet I was not dis appointed at this or any other charge that would have been made, for the excitement was so intense that the steam had to escape in some way. And as this is the most natural, perhaps It is the least ] injurious. Mr. Davidson disclaimed all knowledge of any i improper transaction between the parties spoken l of, and did not believe it existed. He voted for . Mr. Gwin on the last ballot uecause it pleased him. He had never spoken either to Mr. Gwin, Mr. Broderick, or anv one else, concerning the ; cliang in his vote, lie doubted if any but his j colleague knew of his determination. During the whole of the discussion, the mem i hers of the American and Black Republican par ties seemed very uneasy, which was made known by motions to adjourn. Ac.. Ac. ?

No metal ia uaed in their construction, ai.d they are therefore free from galvanic action and metalic taste. There are no jointa to become filled with moiaturo or partieles of food, hence they are pure and clta.it. They are lighter, atronger, less clumsy, far more durable, and natural in their appearance.
