EVENING STAR. W ASH INO TON CITY: MONDAY May 1*, 1*37. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING TRESS. The Intelligencer argue? with earnestness nod force against the policy of the interference ?>f the Cabinet and Executive with subordinate appointments in the Customs and other Depart ments. basing it* principal objection on the ground that those functionaries cannot find time to attend to such matters, without leaving un attended to other matters of vaatly more public importance. The Union, in an interesting article, philos ophises over the relative condition of the New and Old World. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Tiif. Territorial Government of Kansas. J^'gbt |?lad are we that the Hon. Robert J. alker is on his way to Kansas, where his presence is greatly needed. A storm is evi dently brewing there which bodes, not the re newal of the late civil war in that quarter, but a very heated, and. in its consequences. a very dangerous war of words. With due deference to **** Excellency a"d the Territorial Secretary, we have say tbat they have not increased the chances that wflI al>,e to nssuage the storm they must enci',ui*er- ^7 their late speech es. They have before tli.1,11j ^*st. a most dif ficult task, wherein to succeeu, *real iisoretion on their part will surely be necessary.' They must be guided, first, by law. and next, bj* cir cumstanccs; and it seems to us that had thsy refrained from laying down a platform or plat forms with reference to their policy, they would nut only have been freer to have taken advan tage of everything transpiring that they might lawfully make available in the way of securing for the policy (purpose) of the Kansas-Nebraska bill a complete triumph, but they would also have avoided affording unnecessary opportuni ties for thi?sc disposed to find fault with their act*. to pick holes in that policy?to cavil at it. In thc*c times when professions are so abun dant and so few of them are realized, the world will judge th^ni by their acts?not their words; and word- needlessly uttered that may be even indirectly calculated to commit them to do aught hut to administer the law fearlessly and to the end of securing all citizens of the Terri tory in the enjoyment of their rights affirmed in the Kansas-Nebraska act as expounded in the inaugural of President Ituchanan and by the Suprtuic Court of the United States, are B! >re likely to embarrass than to facilitate their career there. There arc thousand^ in the Ter ritory. and hundreds of thousands out of it eager for excuses and opportunities to enable theiu tu oppose the policy of the Territorial Government, p* that is to be From the New York Trihnnr down to the most insignifLunt abolition paper, they are already in full cry of objection to more or less of the positions taken in the speeches of Messrs. Walker and Stanton. <o which we refer. These journals are mar shaling their forces in line for another ?' bleed ing Kacas" onslaught upon the Democracy, and make their point.- upsil the HioTe or les* of those positions. It would have been wiser, far wiser, we im aginc. not to have thus marked out for them in advance of the conte.-t. a plan of battle, as it were, whu-h they evidently regard as advan tageous to themselves, or they would not thus ? soon have sprung forward to avail themselves of it. Prudence should have dictated the wis dom of doing as little as possible in the way of affording the enemy such an opportunity of or ganizing in advance, and concentrating and con solidating their means of oj position. Better would it have been had Messrs. Walker and Stanton kept their own counsel, and left the Abolition party to organize against them only upon eatures in their actual administration of the Territory s affairs. Their counsels would then necessarily have been embarrassed and divided, and their schemes of opposition by no means as thoroughly matured months hence, a. at this time through the opportunities of the numerous speeches ty which we refer. Long since we took occasion to explain the reasons for our belief that upon the result of the contest in Kansas the fate of the Union in a great measure hangs ^Entertaining the same opinion still, we deeply^egret the occurrence of anything likely to militate even indirectly against the eventual success of the cause there to which we are sincerely attached The Position op Women in Society ?After all Woman's-Right ism has done, and it has written with a talented and very sharp j?en enough to have revolutionised the world if written in almost any other cause, and has spoken with uu oily and persevering tongue in deed?we cannot perceive that it has advanced the cause of ?? woman s disinthrallment ' from the tyrany of man. a f>eg. in this country. In the section* where there exist Woman's Right. organizations the laws continue to be most stringent against their civil coequality. The PtHK %tflraui'iu. recently discussing the reasons why their civil status in society fails to be changed notwithstanding the efforts to which we refer, says : -So far the ?-iv?I relations lietween the sexes ? j undersoil*- no change. but all others have vield' d to th?> force of number*, until man m<> ..opol:^ bnt the s.ngle calling of policeman U omen are our merchant*, our merc hants' clerk* and our drummer* about hotels and fashionable *1 ding-house*.

Nor i* thi* tbe worst,<1 teasing cc?niCs natural to a female, but it is a positive drawlklck to a male, and when carried to the excess whicll town fashions some times prescribe, is murderous. We have seen male children so overloaded with furs, flannels. blankets, buffalo robes, and India rubbers, that it required two men to pull them along in a small wagon The lists of mortality in this eitv chow that the deaths among male childwn are tiftv per cent, more than among females. This, though sufficiently startling, leads to no reform, ana hence, we liav#concluded that the days of our sex in Philadelphia are pretty well numbered. The Great Railroad Celebration. Once or twice of late we have referred to the mag nificent Railroad Celebration to come off short ly in St. Louis, and on ill hands we hear of preparations being made on a grand scale to participate in its festivities. It is already evi dent that thousands on thousands of the leading men from all sections of the country will be present. By way of giving tho reader some idea of th<?c preparations, we may mention that the managers of the following railroads have agreed to pass free, there and back, hold ers of tickets of invitation to attend the cele bration. Viz: Baltimore and Ohio; Buffalo and Erie; Buffa lo Division of New York and Erie ; Central Ohio; Chicago. Alton and Ht. Louis; Chicago and Rock Island ; Cincinnati. Hamilton and Dayton; Cleve land and Toledo; Cleveland, Columbus and Cin cinnati; Cleveland and Pittsburg; Cleveland and Krie; Covington and Lexington; Kvansville and Crawfordsville ; Great Western of Canada; Great Western of Illinois; Hudson River ; lllinoisCeu tral; Indianapolis and Cincinnati; JcflVrsonville; Little Miami.

F&aven. j(t is understood that two (if not more) mem bcr^&S the Cabinet will be present on the occa sion. trust that the Cabinet may be thus represented! trbere, because it is well that those who compose it should be thrown as often and as freely as possible in immediate contact with the people, otheT tlwin seekers after office, and others not identified with or seeking identifica tion, direct or indirect, with the Government. Nonsense.?The New York llrrald of Sat urday last contains a rigmarole story?nomi nally from this city by telegraph?professing to detail with great minuteness the diplomatic and financial plans of the Administration for the acquisition of Cuba. Its pith is an allega gation that tho Rothschilds are to be interested in the scheuio on behalf of the Lnited States, and that Mr. Auguste Belmont is to bo trans ferred to Madrid in Mr. Dodge's place; that all the diplomatic appointments are to be made with reference to the single point; that on? hundred and twenty millions is to be the price paid; that the Pope is to be enlisted to per suade Isabella's Government to accede to our wishes, Ac., Ac. Of course this story is made absolutely of whole cloth. There is not a word of truth in it from beginning to end. We believe, as wo sin cerely hope, that em the close of the Adminis tration of James Buchanan, Cuba will bo ours honorably and satisfactorily obtained. Yet nothing will more embarrass the earnest and sagacious efforts of the President and Secretary of Suite for its acquisition than .such foolish publications as that on which we comment above, the effect of which should be to impress on all necessarily entrusted with knowledge of the diplomacy or other confidential plan* of the Government, the necessity of keeping closcd mouths, without which, on their part, there is little chance for success id such an undertaking. The Weather.?The following report of the weather for this morning is made from the Morse Telegraph line to the Smithsonian Institution, and will be continued daily when the line is in working order.

The Maryland Appraiser*. ?After the Stnr went to press on Saturday last, it was de termined in Cabinet council to npjioint, as Ap praisers of the Customs in Maryland, John Baughtuan. Esq.. editor of the Frederick Citi zen, for the State at large, and Bcalc H. Rich ardson. Esq . editor of tho Baltimore Republi can, and David C. Springer. Esq.. of Harford county, for the port of Baltimore. They are. all three, eminently sensible, well-informed and excellent citizens, besides being gentlemen who have served the Democratic party long and faithfully, without turning to the right or to the left. Better selections could not have been made, cither for the interests of the commerce of the State, for the Government, or for the Democratic cause in Maryland. Their appoint ment is still another earnest of the persistent determination of the Administration to be gov erned in the distribution of its patronage by a rigid devotion to the public interest and sound views of duty to the Democratic party.

A month ago we took occasion to point out facts to the readers of the Star, showing the cer tainty of the eventual reappointment of Edward S. Hough. Esq , to the position, so satisfactorily filled by-bim for the last four years. It was done on Satunlay afternoon last, a few moments after the Star went to p/ess. In connection with thi.- appointment, we have to say that on all mooted questions of the sort this Adminis tration deliberates with great care and most commeudable solicitude, and. so far. in every instance its conclusions ha>e been eminently wise, and satisfactory to the great mass of tho party in every community immediately inter ested in them. The Naval Engineer Board?now in *cf sion at Philadelphia?expect to conclude their labors as early as Wednesday evening next. In all twenty-eight candidates for admission in their corps applied at tfo Department for tb? requisite letter of permiuionjto go before this Board. Heretofore the custom has been to call into the service as third assistant engineers such of them as passed favorable examinations, as their senrioe? might bo required, in rotation, according to the relative merit with which each passed. As more third assistant engineers are now actually required than there are appli cants for such positions under the stringent or deal of examination to which they are sub jected. of course all who pass on this occasion will at once enter the service. The Naval Cotrts or Inquiry.?Before Court No. 1, the case of ex-Lt. Washington A. Bartlett is still under consideration. Captain Misroom was to-day recalled and examined on the part of the Government, and the Judge Ad vocate read and submitted sundry documents, on the same side. Before Court No. 2, the defence of Lt. Thorn ton was read to-day and submitted by his coun sel. Afterwards the Court made up its judg ment upon that case, and transmitted it to the Secretary of the Navy. The case of Lt. Sartjri (furloughed by the late Retiring Board) was taken up. Win. E. Lehman, Esq., is his coun sel. No witnesses in the case had been exam ined before the ?'tar went to press. Court No. 3 (before which the case of Captain Ininan is still pending) was not in session, to day, owing to the sickness of the Judge Advo cate. Appointments.?By the President.?Edw'd S. llough.

Mr. Gallo way. of Ohio, and other Republican members of the la*t Congress, went even more heavily into the feed-distributing business than the law provided; That is. they each purchased many bushels of garden seed, Ac., for distribution among their constituents, which have been put up here at the cost of the Treasury of the Uni ted States, and forwarded to them.

Resignation of an Army Officer.?The resignation of Fiist Lieut. Benjamin Allston. 1st Dragoons, has been accepted by the Presi dent, to take effect June 20, 1Ko7. New York Criminal Record?An idea of the safety of human life in New York city is af forded l?y a glance at the catalogue of murdered and missing persons in that city within the last five years. Among them are?Dr. Burdell, Miss Mary Rogers, the beautiful cigar girl; Dr. Lute ner; Mrs. Houseman, on Staten Island, a few years ago, for which crime Polly Bodine was tried and acquitted ; young Pierce; the unknown young woman found dead at Newburg; the Po lice Officer Hardenbrook ; Bartholomew Burke, porter, killed In the shop corner of White street and Broadway; Henry Corlies, shot on the rnrner of Leonard street and Broadway; Mrs. Walker, murdered in her own house on Lexington avenue; the painter in Ann street, supposed to have been killed by one of his apprentices, two or three years since; and the man killed at the corner of Ann and Nassau streets about the same time. Missing?Krasths L. De Forest, from the Metro politan Hotel : John B. Vedder, of Chicago, do.; and Miss Sarah McClelland, from Brooklyn.

Of the passengers in the steerage only fifty will start with the ship from Balti more. of whom 4.J are from Kentucky. <? from Virginia.6 from New York, and 1 from Alabama. Rev Mr. Wilson, white, teacher of the Alexan dria High School at Monrovia, and Mr. De Lyon, colored, of Monrovia, will l?e the onlv cabin |>as scnger*. The remainder of the emigrants, nearly all of whom are from North Carolina, will em bark at Norfolk. Her freight will, as usual.be miscellaneous, and consist of such things as will be of immediate use to the colonists. She will take out a large quantity of provisions, a large steam sugar mill, three framed houses, ready to In? put upon arrival.

The composer is Mr. Martin, of this city, author of ''The Soldier Boy's Grave," "The Nun's Farewell," and other beautiful songs.

A Letter from Mr. Dallas?An Interesting communication from the pen of Mr. Dallas, the American Minister in London, addressed to Lord Clarendon, has been published. It refers to a very humble, but at the same time, a most heroic service rendered by a body of Margate boatmen to an American vessel called the Northern Belle, which was wrecked off Kingsgate in the early part of the present year, during a terrilic storm. The boatmen, by nobly hazarding their own lives, rescued the crew from impending death, and the American ^Jovernment commissioned Mr. Dallas to present each man with a silver medal as a recog nition of his services, and a sum of money vary ing from #10 to ftfU, according to the character of each individual case. The manner in which Mr. Dallas announced this act of our Government to the Foreign Secretary is characteristic of that power and facility of expression for which his speeches and despatches are so remarkable. itIT" The Typographical Union at New Orleans adjourned on the 10th I list. A resolution wasadopt ed against establishing a "government printing office," as l>eing calculated to introduce politics into the national and sut>ordinate unions. A reso- | lution was passed hailing with pleasure the es tablishment by the printers of Philadelphia of an asylum for superannuated and indigent printers, and heartily recommend the same to the support of the printers of the United States. The I lift adjourned to meet in Chicago on the lirst Monday or May next. Alponze Kar alleges that epochs in a wo man's life are frequently marked l?y dress.
