EVENING STAR. WASIinr.TOK CITY: Till KSDAY April 30, 1M7. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Union contradict* the rumor that the array officers design presenting their gallant f>rmer confrere, Gen Quitman, with a silver ivrvic? for his exertions last winter in the mat ter of compassing the enactment of the bill to increase their pay. On this subject the Union m ikes the quotation and remarks that will be found below : "'Army Tf?timo?mal to General Quit man.?The officer* of the United State* army in tend to present Gen. Quitman a service of silver plate for his effort* in secuilng the passage through Congress of the bill making an addition to their salaries. Gen. Quitman, it will l?e remembered, w.i* the chairman of the House Military Commit tee Gen. Scott has written him a very'hanttsome letter, announcing that, as the senior officer. he Las consented to act as the organ of his brother ? Hirer* of the army in procuring the proposed testimonial ?Baltimore Sun. " We have unquestionable authority for saying that the above statements are incorrect. Wehave heard that a few officers?following out the first impulse of gratitude to their old and valued asso riate-in-arms for hi* handsome and zealous advo cacy of their claims upon legislative considera tion?initiated a proposition to present a hand some testimonial to Gen. Quitman. But It ap pears that, upon reflection, the General's friends? under wtilch description may be comprised every name on the army list?apprehensive that such "a tribute might wear some appearance of indelica cy. or give some ground for cavil, did not feel at liberty to act upon the friendly impulse which gave rise to the proposition. ? General Scott * letter, which we have seen, was couched In warm and handsome terms of acknowledgment to'ieu.Quitman for hia friendly interest in the army, but had no reference to any oilier or more tangible testimonial than the heart felt expression of gratitude and affection on the part of his former comrades in the field." The same paper is publishing a series of pon derous epistles from the pen *t Gen Duff Green on '? Distribution,' wherein much political and public lands lore is disentombed and again brought to the memory of man. The Intelligencer joins issue with The South. of Richmond. \ a., as to the propriety of relying on the resolutions of '98 and ?9, as the butress for defencc against a dissolution of the Confed eracy Our respected Washington cotempora ry s reply to the strong article in the Kichraond journal, showing that the great danger to the Union is from a tendency to consolidation, is written in its very best vein Though its satire upon the Virginia constitutional doctrines is really worthy the pen of a Sterne, or a page in the Sjtertator as a literary effort, as an argu ment. with all due deference to it. it is a sheer begging of the question Nevertheless, we are glad indeed to find The South and the Intelli gencer engaged in controversy over grave ques tions of constitutional law and national import, for they ure foemon worthy of each other. At each tbru-t their polished weapons will evolfe Scintillation* of pungent and bright thought that can hardly fail to throw light upon the im portant subject matters in i-sue between them WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The Tehcastepec QrESTiox ?An intelli gent and well-informed Washington correspond ent of the New York Times. ' X Y Z.," writes the only reliable full exposition of the controversy and State question in issue here, with reference to the Tehuantepec transit route, that wo have ever seen in print. As it is a matter of national moment indeed, we transfer his letter to the Star's columns, premi.-ing. at the same rtime that he is in error as to the ?mount of indemnity claimed by those repre senting the Hargous interest in both the Garay and Sloo grants, which is not five million" of dollars, a* he allege; According to the gene ral outside understanding here, in the correct ness of which we have every reason to place en tire confidence, they ark only that the Govern ment shall re-embur-e their outlay, with inter est at six per centum j>er annum on each dis bursement made by them from the time it was made The sum total under t-ach an arrange ment would not approach anything near five million; of dollars aj thi? correspondent aavs : Corrt'pond'mrt of tht Xetc York Daily Titr.ts.

The v?ew* wb-ch you have taken of the inter esting and romplicared Tehuaiitepec (juration are correct This Government must acquire from Meiico a clear, explicit, and untiamnieied right of way across the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. and. of course, the right of the navigation of i he Coat Xocoalcoe*.

But It is objected that, by this course, the Gov ernment will trample upon private rights. The plain answer is. that t he Government may acquire the rq^ht which is thus sought, subject to any equitable claims which private citizens may have in regaid to it Mexico, in any treaty which may be made with the United States, may herself stipulate for the payment of their claims to a cer tain and lilwral amount. .Mexico, on the other hand, may insist, as she has heretofore done, that if these o irties are or should ?*? aggrieved bv her action, they nnrst seek their reined)- through her judicial tribunal, and that these awards shall be the measure of the sum to be paid to the claim ant*.

Is it possible to concoct a inof magnificent pro. gramme of promises, whereby to entice eager and sanguine avarice into * surrender of its cash?

We do not know what have been Mr. Eli Thayer's antecedents.?but he has certainly studied, if not practised, to good pur pose, in the school of fancy-stock job^inz and moonshine speculation. "T^at V!.ir*inia' KenV*ky,and Missouri otter marked inducements to labor when accompanied b> capital, we have no doubt. But any attempt to force upon either of those States, or unon anv any other, a supply of labor beyond its iLim5|? f rn,,llt on<l in ruiu' which will fall the heaviest upon the laborers who yield to its ^lurenjents.

The business men w hose names have been mentioned in this con nection with it. must know that nothing is mo.e ^ ,,a'n to bring it into disttrust and contempt, and them as it, backers info discredit, than the absurd overstatements and the delusive p.omises which form the staple of Mr Thayer's appeals 1 liey sound much more like the rigmarole of the mock auctioneer, or the Herald s bald puffs of ?los.1 ant* ^ar^er ^ than the sober realities and simple tacts upon which a business operation should rest for its basis." ^ It will be perceived that the Tims* takes precisely the same view of Thayer'B thieving scheme as that ot the Star, explained weeks ago. That is, so far as its claims to be an in dustrial enterprise are concerned. There is another aspect of the subject not without interest to the reflecting. It is simply the fact that such an individual as this Mr. Thayer should have been elected to the Con gress of the United States by a Massachusetts constituency, who, up to ten or twelve years ago. invariably sent to represent them in Wash ington men of mind and character, whose com petency for the proper discharge of all the duties of a member of the Congress of the United States commanded the respect of the whole country. The woeful change, as illustrated in the sele-tion of Thayer to fill the place of such a man as John Davis, (notwithstanding the virulence of the latter s federalism,) is a speak ing comment, indeed, upon the result of their boasted system of popular education in Massa chusetts. Education is not merely to tcach men to read and write; but to increase mans capacity to avail himself of all the blessings and sources of improvement, moral, intellec tual. industrial, social, Ac., Ac., which Provi dence has placed within his reach. Massachu sett ? boasted system, it seems, has so moulded the mind of her people, as that they l ave be c .me the tools of demagogues and chevalier* U Industrie such as this Mr Thayer, than whom a more ignorant and impudent charlatan never foisted himself upon the most debased constituency elsewhere We have no fancy for the educational system of Massachusetts, because it teaches only that little learning that maketh a man mad Ere its initiation, the people of that State were, perhaps, the most law-abiding and conscientious in the world We question whether, at this time, the civilized world contains any other people, notwithstanding their professions of propriety, godliness. Jfcc., so utterly reckless of the restraints of true Christianity, of moral principle, of the principle of right between man and man, and of that of sound patriotism, as the people of Massachusetts ; who, if their newspapers, preachers, law proceedings. A,? , 4c., are to be credited a- laying hare the work ings of their minds and hearts, have almost with one accord abandoned themselves to the influence of the idea that in all things religious, industrial, social and political, the eud justifies the means We do not wor.der that Mr. Eli Thayer has been elected to Congre.-s from the Worcester district of Massachusetts. Indiana ?Our private advices from Indiana lea* us to believe that the course of the Kepub l.can party in their late Legislature, in termi nating the session without passing the usual appropriation bills, has generated wide-spread distress among the blind, insane, and other former recipients of the State s charities and bounty, all of whom have, r.r ucntuta/r, been turned out of the places wherein they had been cared for at the expense of the State, and are left to depend upon the slender rcid of individ ual charity We have contended.consistent] v that the Republican party are wholly unfit to got crn. They have held power no where with out demonstrating the truth of this, our convic tion in some way or other Wherever they h ue been able to do so, they have nullified such laws as were obnoxious to their prejudice simply because they are thus obnoxious. De falcations have been the general rule?not the exception in tho conduct of financial oflicers in.'tailed by them. So, too. have they almost invariably delivered up the public interest bound hand and foot to bands or gangs of spec ulutors. in the way ot granting all sorts of spC. <-ial privileges, fur which, the world has good reason to believe, men among them hare cor ruptly received unlawful and improper .emu lation, personally. lluW far (heir cU| be the party of real philanthropy is an honest and truthtul one. is aptly illustrated indeed, in t act ,n the Legislature of Indiana to which we refer above.
