EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: T1ESDAY MayiW, 1?W7. SriRJT OF THE MORNING rRESS. The Intelhfrnerr having been led into ad mitting into it* columns disquisitions upon "Spiritualism." apologises to-day for giving the subject so ranch importance, ard declines hereafter loaning itself to increase public inter cut in it: very properly, we think. The Union forcibly explain." the enormities cf ??Republicanism." as exemplified in the rev olutionary and tyrranical movement* of that par'y in Xew Yoik, whose leaders are now said to be actually seeking to induce the Governor of the State to loan them the militia of the ruraj districts'to for*- into operation in the city, the odious police law enacted by the last Legisla ture. which being so emphatically detested (for good reasons) cannot possibly be made uniform ly dnd successfully operative, even though es. hayed to be carried out by al! the military force of the whole State outside the city.

The personal friends and admirers of Mr Dick inson last night availed themselves of his pres ence in this city, oa a. temporary visit, to pay him the cuinpliment of a serenade.

The Ah arps.?We hare barely time to say that the President and Secretary of War have, iii awarding the contracts for the work on the Washington Aqueduct, been guided by the synopei* of the results of the bidding embraced in the following letter from the able and accom plished engineer of the work, whose duty it was to make the calculations on which the judg ment ho pronounces rest*.

The Jersey Contest .?While there are evi dently stirring contests for diplomatic positions in progress here, not only between the outs and the friends of the ins from every State a citizen , of which is now abroad in a diplomatic capacity, that between the New Jersey outs as maintain ed in this city, is evidently most active. Ac cording to the received outside understanding it is a quadrangular struggle, all the parties engaged being powerful in the political influ ence they have been able to bring to bear. The | aspirants are ex-Gov. Price, Col. Jas I). Wall, a son of the late Senator Garnet I>. Wall, Geni , E. V \\ right of Hudson, and Wright, Esq., of Newark. The fact that they are all leading men and are powerfully backed politi cally. attracts to their contest much of the at tention of the Democratic politicians from all quarter*, now here As far as we have been able to learn, their rivalry is marked by no rep rehensible features, being good tempered and dignified It is to be hoped that its termina tion will not leave bad blood rankling in the bosom of any of tho.-e engaged Wos t CO FAR ESOCGH ?Tbe New York Trth/ne has lost all faith in '-Old Bullion," because, forsooth, he refuses to admit that ail the patriotism and virtue in the land is em bodied in the abolitionist*. As a matter of course, for 3o grievous an offence, it buffets him I round I j. and rejoices over the fact that he is no j linger in public life. Unfortunately for the gallant Colonel, he wentro far with the T,ibnne in abolitionism, that all the opponents of that political crced have also long since washed their hands of him, and now entertain for him such sentiments as render it impossible that ho can ever regain their confidence. He stands literally alone, enjoying the countenance of no parly or wing of a party. There never was a in-re forcible exposition of his memorable "Solitary and alone exclamation than he pre .-ent? in his political poaitiou at this tiuic. The Rev. Wm G. Eliot, now of St Louis, who, having been reared here, is well known to mmy Wiuhingtouians, is credited by tho Anti slivery press (and abused accordinglv) with having been the author of the movement of se cession on the part of the Unitarian clergy of the South who attended their late National Convention in Illinois, when the Northern ma jority passed Abolition resolutions We are glad, indeed, to learn that Mr Eliot's early associations continue so to impress his mind as to keep it free from the mania which has turned so many pulpits of his denomination at the I North into - stumps," from which politics, ra'her than the Christian religion, is preached. j The Naval Courts or IxQriRy. ?

Georgetown, May ?6,1?57. We have rarely known our town to be as quiet as at the present time. We have strollea all around this morning, and find it entirely desti tute of news, either ol a commercial, political, or religious character Ttie onlv matter of interest for the young folks was the Red Men's excursion to the White House which came off yesterday to their entire satisfac tion. The party was not large, but what they lo.?t in numbers was made up in spirit?at least we have to judge so, since their active feet kept time with the music from their leaving our town to their returning to its wharf again. At the White House it is unnecessary to say they enjoyed themselves tothe full. A person must 1>? in (full spirits indeed, not to enjoy the pastimes while tfiere. We notified vour readers a few days since that a youth, named Frederick Bender, an apprentice to Mr Crombaugh, butcher, accldently fell into one of the vats, at the distillery. We have now to announce his death, from the effects of the scalding. The weather this morning is warm and real summer-like, reminding one of the actual neces sity, for the sake of comfort, to contract with T. N K idwell for a future supply of his very supe rior ire. The contract for rebuilding the residence of our old fellow-citizen. Com.

W'? notice, with pleasure, the repairing of the pump at the corner of Beall and Montgomery sts. As for the citizens near it, they would prefer seeing it tilled up than to be out of repair again for so long, when a half hour's work could make it perform its duty. This is one of the most im portant pumps of the town, supplying, when in o:der. from to 5"0 persons daily ; nevertheless the contractors fur the repair of pumps sutler it to remain nearly one half its time perfectly dry. There are but few arrivals by river since our last. We now notice the picket schnr Martha. Baxter, from Boston, with plaster for Hartley A Bro . paper to G.
