EVENING" STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNESDAY APril ia' lMT* SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Don. Wo. A. Harris this morning makes his bow to t8c public, as editor and proprietor of the Washington Union, in the following feeling and graceful salutatory : " To thk Reads** or the L'sio!* ?The Hon. John Appleton has already announced to thepub lie the circumstances which have induced him to discontinue his connexion with the Union as Its editor and proprietor. I am glad to know, how. ever, that his ncalth Is so ftir recovered as that his talent* and experience njav be usefully ex erted in that important sphere of duty to which he has been called. " Having purchased the entire property of the Washington Union newspaper. 1 shall, to-mor row, commence my dutie.s as Its sole editor and jproprietor. The paper will appear in an entirely new set of type: and it Is my intention to enlarge its sixe as the demands or the necessities of the future may require. It is my fixed purpose to spare neither expense nor effort to make it the great central organ of the Democratic party, every wav worthv of their confidence and support, and a reliable and faithful medium of communication between the capital and the country. Haying for many years exerted my best efforts to brinj* Mr. Buchanan into the Presidential chair, I shall ren der to him and to his Administration all the sup port which party ties and personal friendship can inspire. A great crisis in the affairs of the coun try?a crisis fraught with peril and danger to the rights of the States and the permanency of the Union?demonstrated to th?* national Democracy and the patriotic people of the country that his acknowledged talents, matured wisdom, ap proved statesmanship and long experience were necessary to their peace and safety; and they placed him, with ac clamations, at'the head o'f the Government and the nation. He realized at once their hope* and expectations, by calling to Ins assistance a Cabinet of men combining the rarest qualifications of talents, experience and statesmanship?men endeared to the Democratic pairy by all tneir antecedents ; by the zeal which they had displayed and the services which they had rendered in some of the most honorable office* of the countrv, in supporting and sustain ing the principles, the measures and the policy of our party A single month has sufficed to'fill every patriotic heart in the land with confidence and hope. Evwn his political enemies seem to respect him. Fanaticism itself appears willing for a moment to moderate its tone; and the ene mies of our peace, uf the Constitution and the Union, will not be able much longer to disturb the public mind by their fanatical shrieks and treasonable agitation. ?41 bring to the duties of my position consider able experience in editorial service, no small share of zeal, and a faith and devotion to the great principles of the democratic party as strong and abiding an I have in the principles of the Christian religion Itself; for the principles which are the 1<mis of the measures and the policy of that party are but the principles of eternal truth and justice applied to the operations of govern ment. and intended to regulate the conduct of man in his social and political state. These prin ciples are fully imbodied in that impregnable platform piomclgated by the National Democratic Convention in Jnne last at Cincinnati. Our po litical chief, in his acceptance of our nomination, most cordially approved that platform, and placed himself upon it. Upon if, with all its issues, doctrines, and policy, he was elected He reaf firmed it all in hi* matchless Inaugural Address, which carried confidence and hope into all parts of the country. It caused the anxious ana the t:mid to take couiage; the doubting looked for ward with resolute faith; and all the good citi zen* now see in the future the inspiring omens of re-ee, prosperity, and safety. Upon that plat form I also stand. 1 placed myself there bv my vote and mv action al the moment of it* adoption, and there 1 shall continue to stand, and oy its principles 1 shall conduct the Union as long as I have an interest in its property or continue to di rect its course. '?I am fully aware of the high responsibilities of my position. Its labors, anxieties, and difficul ties I fully understand a;?d appreciate; but, with unflagging ^eal and unyielding purpose. I shall foforwaid in the line of my duty, adhering to he principles of the partv. doing battle in its ser vice, and willing to stand with 11 or fall with it, if it must be, but ever battling for the right. "W. A. Harris."

The Connecticut Election.?The victory ia with the Democrats, most decidedly, in the *> recent Connecticut election. We mentioned, some days since that their gain on the popular vote, when compared with the result of the laic Presidential election, was some six thonsan . In saying so we were in error, insomuc as a Is rery nearly ten thousand. In a po ,81*^ two thousand votes and more, they are ea n not more than two hundred and twenty-flvu the contest having been a fair one between the two parties; the American-Republ.ean on the one side and the Democrat* upon the other. Though Bishop (Dem.,) is elected to Congress over Perry, as the contest between them wa9 exceedingly close, of course the latter will con test hare for the seat, that being the universal fashion in such cases, since Congress has adopted an invariable rule of paying all contestant* full pay and mileage. It is worthy of note, that throughout this Connecticut contest the Democrats, with one accord, stood manfully by the principle of the Kansas-Nebraska act. as interpreted by Presi dent Buchanan, and the Constitution, as inter preted by the Supreme Court in the Dred Scott case. Not a man of them dodged or squirmed for an in3tant from that manly attitude, from the beginning to the end of the canvass?not a man of them all. We took occasion, a day or two since, to ex press the hope and belief that ere long the policy of the late National Administration would be found uppermost at the North, under the in fluence of the firmness and vigor with which it is being carried out by their successors. Does not this result in Connecticut show that that hope and belief are well founded, indeed? Who. except those who study politics closely, would have imagined that so soon the lion of Abolition Free Soilism could be thu? success fully bearded in what, by universal consent ap parently, was a week ago commonly regarded as being his very den ? The Fecit or the Tree.?The career of the present Republican Legislature of New York is capitally illustrating the true character of that party. Its majority in that body have evidently but two ends in view : First, to "progress" in Abolitionism as fast as possible. Second, to make as much money as poeeible for thcxsclves and their friends by special legis lation. To accomplish the first end, they are still tinkering the Dred Scott question. A commit tee on the subject have just rnado a report re plete with doctrines setting at defiance the laws of the land, the Constitution, and the authori ties of the General Government. The remedy they propose is nullification; and they advocate that remedy upon grounds involving open and flagrant declarations that thoir purpose is rev olution and nothing less. They seek to compass the second end we men tion above, by the enactment of special-privi lege bills for the benefit of squads of specu lators?among them being one granting to half a doten persons named, und their unnamed co partners. the right to lay down a railroad in Broadway, New York city, with the privileges of a monopoly. The scheme was matured in the dark, and when the triggers were set it was sprung before the people interested?the citi iena of New York?were aware of its existence. If it triumphs, it places a million of dollars in the pockets of the schemers, in a day ; the company's privileges being worth at least that sum in Wall street. The New York Express, , on the birth of " freedom shrieking," charac terized it as " shrieking for plunder" in reality. The history of the legislation of the Republi can party from the dawn of its existence to this hour, wherever it has existed, has demonstrated the eternal justice of that pithy criticism. The present Republican Legislature of New York is doing even more than its legitimate share by way of convincing skeptics, if any such exist, that iu its so brief expression the Express pub lished a powerful, comprehensive, conclusive and just analysis of the true character of the Republican party organisation. New England Evangelism.?While New Englaud is engaged in preaching so lustily, as of late, against the sins of others, all the out side world is musing thoughtfully over the state of practical Christianity in her own midst, as evinced with great force in the disgusting evidence adduced in the trial of tho Rev. Mr. Kalloch. and with such palpable effect, first in the action of the jury failing to find him guilty, and then in that of the dear flock of this pre cious pastor, in insisting that he shall continue in the discharge of ministerial duties among them! Such has really been the action of one of the largest congregations of New England's capital, Boston?that of the Temple. Its members, were their intellectual and moral superiority over the benighted congregations of Southern christians to be denied in their hear ing. would conceive themselves insulted, de graded. and maltreated indeed. Yet had the man, Kalloch. been a pastor of a congregation at the South, he would have got the full benefit of the law's severest penalty; and at the end Of his term of punishment, would as soon think of committing suicide, as daring ever again to look iu the face a member of his immediate church, or of the branch of christians to which he pro fesses to belong. The East Indies Squadron.?We appre hend that thero is a strong contest for the com mand of the American squadron now in the Chinese seas, in progress here; quite a number of distinguished naval Captains being ambitious for the position. By tho time the relief des tined for that service can get out there the term of Commander Armstrong, on that station, will have expired, and under the regulations of the service he will, in all probability, be recalled. Some of the Northern papers speak of the al leged determinations of the Department to send Commodore Perry out to relieve him. We doubt tLe fact; insomuch as he was so lately in command of thai station?it not being usual to return an officer so won to a station from which he so recently returned. It is understood that Commodore P. has been busily engaged for some time in affording the Department informa tion concerning its affairs in that quarter of the world, the result of his experienco there. In that matter his presence here at this t me ha?, doubtless, been of great value to the public in terest, for he is a very competent gentleman in | deed, in all branches of his profession. By the by, wo hear that the Boston mer chant*, greatly interested in trade with China, have petitioned that Captuin Goldsborough be sent out to relieve Commodore Armstrong. The Phoi'oseo Revenue (Steam) Cutter. Fifteen models for the construction of this ves sel, ordered by Congress at its last session to be built, have been reoeived by the Secretary of the Navy. As a collection, they are equal to any things of the kind ever offered to a Govern ment on either side of the Atlantic?coming as they do from the houses of Steers, Westervelt, Webb, of New York; Page 4 Allen, of Ports mouth ; Fardey, of Baltimore, nnd a host of others in New York nnd other oities famous for turning out fine steamships. A board of competent officers are to decide which model is the best under the circumstances. It consists of Naval Constructor Pook. Naval Eagjnetr Hunt. Engineer Copelaud, U. H. In ?I>ectors of boilers and hulls, ard some other gentlemen who have not been designated. The plane and apeeifioatiooa offered, as well as tbe models, will of courae b? duly considered bj them. The Navxl Covkts or Ikqcwt. ?Court No. 1 are, to-day, considering the case Of Lt. Jame! M. GHlia, (furloughed.) who act* u his owi ooanael. Commodores McCauley and Aulick and Lt Hoyle were examined on his behalf thii morning, as well as Mr. Hogg, a clerk in thi Department, on the Department's bohalf. The Court N?. 2 are, to-day, engaged in the case of Lt. Wm. Chandler. Walter Davidge Esq., of this oity, is his counsel. Commandei W. W. Hunter and Surgeon Edwards were ex' amined to-day in his behalf. Ao/#.?It is due to Lieut. Chandler that w< should correot a mistake into which we were led yesterday in attributing to the absence of hu witnesses the fact that his trial did not ther commence. They were all ready at the tim? designated for the commencement of his case. Thk Ixiojt Newspaper.?Some time sinc< we took occasion to remark that the newspapei paragraph saying that Mr. Edmund Burke, ol New Hampshire, had been tendered a position in the editorial corps of the Union, wm a mis take. As it is repeated in despatches from this citj that went over the wires yesterday, w? hare U repeat the correction. The reader will per ceive from the salutatory of the Hon. Wm. A Harris, (which we re-publish to-day from tb< Union,) that he is to be the sole editor of th< paper. We are satisfied that no offer, such at represented, has been made to Mr. Burke, oi to auy one else. Slisgino Slush.?There is food for reflectior in the intensity with which the Herald is now abusing the Secretary of the Navy. Gov Toucey may fairly consider himself a furtunat< man, on being thus honored by being first selected out byth* Herald from among all his colleagues to be so vehemently and so early slandered bj Bennett and his people. Whoever the Herala abuse*, if in public life, is sure to enjoy the re spect and regard of tho public; as is manifest ir the fact that they always prosper more signally in connection with public affairs, than any others W hatevcr and whoever the Herald essays witl might and main to pull down, public opinior surely builds up and strengthens. Such ha< been the history of the last decade, most signally Ordered.?The Cumberland, (sloop-of-war,] now at the Charlestown Navy Yard, is being prepared for sea, to go out a? the flag-ship ol the African Coast Squadron. The officers sc far ordered to her are understood to be Captait Thomas A. Conover, (the new commodore of th? squadron;) Lieutenants Thomas M. Crossan. Somerville Nicholson, W. D. Austin, Alberl Allmand, and Charles H. Greene ; Acting Mas ter Richard W. Meade, jr.; Fleet Surgeon Geo Blackwell; Passed Assistant Surgeon Frederick Horner, jr.; Assistant Surgeon James Laws; Purser William G. Marcy. The Third Court of Ixqiirt.?The Secre tary of tho Navy has directed a third Court ol Inquiry to assemble here on Monday next. It is to consist of Captains Lawrenoe Kearny, (President,) John T. Newton, and George T. Storer, neither of whom have been promoted by action of the iate Retiring Board. So the list of this particular Court published in North ern papers is erroneous. We take it for grant ed that to this Court will be assigned the oases of the captains affected by the action of the Re tiring Board. Aitoi.vted.?Calvin L. Sayre of Alahama. W. J. Parrington of Maine, and A. E. Saun ders of Virginia, named in the Star yesterday as having been designated by the Secretary of the Treasury for examination for first class ($1,300 per annum) clerkships in the office of the .^ixth Auditor of the Treasury, have been duly appointed to such place*. Those gentlemen who were named at the same time as having been designated for pro motion in tho same bureau, have also been duly promoted. The Verdict op the Press ?We have read comments on the Herald's impudeut request for berths in Government vessels for its report ers, and its mendacious assaults on Secretary Toucey because he did not feel at liberty to grant it, in the columns of perhaps a hundred newspapers of all parties. Without a single ex ception they rebuke the insolent folly of "ma papper," as pointedly as they applaud the Sec retary's refusal. The Panama Isthmus Question.?We have every reason to believe that advices of the for mal withdrawal of Messrs Morse and Bowlin from the scene of their diplomatic labors reached Washington yesterday. This step on theii part has been anticipated for a month past; sc the information of the fact takes no one by sur prise.

It was feared that during Holy Week disturbances so fomented might occur. The army had sworn to the new cinstitution. It was received with favor through oat the States generally. Isolated cases had oc curred where government officials, including three magistrates of the Supreme Court, had rp f j?ed to swear to it. They were to be. or had been, removed.

When last heard from he was at the Mancbuca Rapids, intending to attack Castillo on Ihe next morning, the 27th. He has removed everything . from San Carlos and Serapiqui previous to leav j ing. There wan a rumor, which requires con firmation, that Col. Lockridge had taken Fort Castillo. Whether true or no?, his prospects are not encouraging, for many of his men are sick; others were deserting whenever a chance offered; and, altogether, the force under his command Is considered by our correspondent as on the eve of disbanding. There is little probability of Walk it receiving further reinforcements, as the steac.;? ers from New York to San Juan have been with drawn. and the Sierra Nevada, which does not sail from San Francisco till 20th, will be the last on the Pacific side. California Nrws.?The news from Califor nia is interesting. The steamers of the Nicaragua line had been laid up for the present, leavinglhe mail line in the enjoyment of the monopoly or the tr.tfflc between the Atlantic and Pacific States. Nothing had been done in the Ltgi>lature in regard to the State debt, but it was thought that some action would be taken on The subject prevloua to the adjournment. A stamp act?a financial matter for relieving the State frwiii her present embarrassments?had passed iiv the lower house. 11 places a tax on all foreign bills of exchange, drafts or orders, and also upon pas senger*' tickets in vessels leaving the State. The"' tax on a two thousand dollar draft is fixed at four dollars, and on first class passenger tickets six dollars. It was thought that the act wonld be come a law. The present season was represented a< l>eing b/ far the most favorable for mining or e ations that California has yet experienced. Tne receipts of gold iu San Francisco bad been large during the two weeks previous to the sailing of the steamer, and It was anticipated that there would be no falling off for a long time to come. Activity in the m-irkets still continued, and an extraordinary stimulus had been given to opera* lion* In various descriptions of goods.
