When Trankiin was Postmaster General, it will In? remembered, all the accounts* of the General Poet Office Depart ment. of all descriptions, werw kept in a single ledger Now, thousands are required to the same ?nd. From the removal of the seat of government to Washington city until to-day, the Govern ment has been altering, extending, building, and in every eooceivablo way adding to the fa cilities for tho transaction of its business here; increasing its annual expenses of that descrip tion pari passu with the increase of the popu lation of the couutry and of its industrial re sources. Yet. to-day, the pressure upon its cramped facilities here is almost as great as at any moment in the last half century. No bet ter tyj>e of the expansion of our national terri tory. iuduatry. numbers, power and interests is to be conceived, than is involved in the growth of these facilities and the population of the Federal metropolis. But two or three years ago the Interior Department proper was cooped up in a private edifice on F street. Already the magnificent wing of the Patent Office build ing. subsequently completed for its temporary accommodation, is absolutely required for the purposes fur which it was originally designed? for the accommodation of branches of the Pat ent Office Bureau, which expands so rapid' v in importance as a business institution. In the next year or two a new structure for the accommodation of tho Interior Department must necessarily be commenced, which, when finished must be a larger and more elaborate pile than the whole building, in a single wing of which its affairs are now transacted; also new State, Navy and War Department buildings, each one of which must be larger, and cost ten times as much as all three of the buildings now thus occupied A new City Prison of at least double the ca pacity of the present one. must als<7 be almost at once built, with all the improvements made necessary by tho increased skill genius and desperation of rascality over those qualities of the rascality of the times when the present one was built We might mention a dozen other public improvements which all reflecting arid informed persons are well aware must be con structed here within the next decade, by theend of which, the advance the country will have made in the meanwhile will as forcibly suggest the necessity for new ones as yet undreamed of He who entertains the i lea that the Gov ernment can ever cease putting up great struc ture; arid making vast improvement here, must rarely be looking forward to the advent of the era when our country will cease growing in power, comnier-'e. agriculture, population, and in the arts and science* This Exr> Ow ?There is a moral in the end of Walker's burglarious raid ou Nicaragua that should be enforced on tho American public mind in these times, by all really interested in the future character of the population of the United State* Heiiee the persistence with which we keep the subject before the Star's readers, under a sense of moral duty which has not permitted us to Hag an instant for long years in its discharge. We rejoice to know that our position on this subject and the earnestness with which it was defended has done at least its share i.n bringing about the expulsion of those who disgraced the name of American* from Nicaragua Iu so doing, we have done much towards reopening the Nicaraguan isthmus route to the commcrec and travel of our countrymen, as well as to demonstrate to the comprehension of all Americans, that those who would get such by treachery, murder and robbery abroad, will as rureiy in the end fall victims before the high er law of a just Providence, as those who essay to live by murder, robbery, Ac., in our own land will pay the law's penalties of their of fences against the statutes of the land. We subjoin the following article on this Xicaraguan theme?as being well worth jieru-al?from the New York Cumwtercirl Adrertiier of Thur.-day evening last: ??

Jr js scarcely suppunable that with such a numeiial superiority, whatever lack of vigor and energy may belong to the races and climate of Central America, lUey could not lonn In-fore thin have annihilate d the intruders or ao effectuallyenclo<? d them as to render certain surrender or death bv starvation Lookin*at 1l,e whole matter, we still Incline to th?* beiiei already expressed iu th?*<e column*, that it was the policy of the allied government to allow Walker to e??-a|>e. after in flicting ui-oii bun just euon"b of piolracted suf fering and mortifying inactivity to *?ffeetually rob miibu"leri?iii of its fjetitiou* popularity in the t. lilted States, and ..vo.d the en .lenient to revenue which the slaughter or execution of Walker and Lis followers would l*e likely to create in some part* of the I 'uion ??This will doubt lew be t lie effect of ttie uon rln*iou of Walker's raid, whether Mich was the policy aril intention of the allies or not. As to to.. r?poit by way of New Orleans that Walker * ?vp'.tuu??ed to t'apt. lfcivis. of the t'liited Stales ?loop-of-wn' >t Marys." it ha* contradict ion upon its f uf: tor had there linn any such capitulation on the teiins sf tted, it i> not supposable that the I idled Mates Commodore at Panama would have violated it in rhe iuanuer alleged More complete and liopaitial reports will doubtless show that the filibuster in;: hero's ' capitulation' was a pre cipitate tli^ht, and. to reverse an adage, a ' leap out of the ti e into the fr) lnj? pan ' lie preferred imprisonment on ixtaid the St Marys, with the uot very alarming prospect of b? iuj; held amena ble to the laws of his own country, to the harsher fate that awaited him if he longer remained with in tlie territory he had invaded 44 That he should be made a lion of in New Or leans was to tie anticipated. Such an adventurer, who had miff:-red much, though he had achieved nothing, wonld be an object of curiosity any where. And there are many reasons why at New Orleans curiosity should grow Info undeserved applause Indeed the man has shown elements o: chai acter which, displayed in a just and righte ons rannf, would lie most commendable ^ hat ever faults may adhere to his character?-ana a despotic tyrannical disposition and deal re o selr-iiigrandisement, which makes him recste of the peace and lives of others, areamonjt tuen he possesses a fortitude and Indoraitablepe - verance and self-reliance which, though pe - cd, excite wonder if not admiration.

And then what has l>een achieved * Not an acre of territory has been acquired. Not a cent of returns for the tens of thousands of dollar* expended. Notasingle foot Cidded to the area of liberty to compensate for the unjnst means employed professedly for that ob ject. The history of the expedition from the fi;st is one of expenditure, slaughter, demoralization and?utter failure. ?' Walker and his companions ought to I*? tried nnd punished by their own countrymen for their hold and persistent violations of their country's laws : but we have a very faint expectation that they will be, albeit our national reputation de mands their indictment at the hands of the I niteu States (iovernment. It cannot now lie pleaded that Walker and his followers have expati lated themselves or are beyond the reach of the laws of the Vniftd >tatf*s; and it surely will not be con tended that their temporary absence from the country scicens them from the operation of their country's laws, now that they have returned. It is easy to s?-e where such a doctrine would lead. Hut. although the Government may l?e indisposed or unable to vindicate the national reputation by the punishment of these its citizens, we indulge the hope that the filibustering proclivity of the restless spiiit* among us has, for a time at least, received its quietus. Twice within a tew years has it l?een proved, npona scale of considerable ma Miitude. that lilibusferism is both unprofitable and"*disastrous. It was so iu Cuha?it has been so iu Nicaiasua. And as long as moral principle is recognized among men, ami the great law ot cause and effect remains in operation, it must 6* un profitable and disastrous. Nothing so palpably initiated in wrong, and so defiant of morals, pa triotism and international justice, can be perma nently successful; and no temporary or partial success should blind a nation to its iniquitousand unjustifiable character. '? Nor with any man who retains his humanity can the most vociferous applause or the most Mat tering ovations compensate for the consciousness of having violated Lis country's laws, or Mifie, in the hours of solitude and thought, the recollec tion of the misery he has intlicted and the lives he has sacrificed at the shrine of his lerkless am bition. With all the glorification that greeted the flllibuster at New Orleans, and though lie may escape the punishment his deeds deserve, General Walker is not to be envied neither are those who have supplied the sinews of his op erations and seduced men to join his ranks whose I tones now lie bleaching on t lie soil of Nicaragua. The mortification of utter failure cannot tie oblit i erated from their minds, any more than the recol lection of the fearful cost or that failure can pass i from the public mind In a few months the leaders of the piratical invasion of Nicaragua will find their level in the public estimation, as have the Cuban junta and the parties who then en snared so many adventurous citizens to their ruin by the equally'piraticat invasion of the island of Cuba. Tinie'b; inirs many mad schemes to sober i measurement, and dis-ot>es the most temptingly l attired iniquities of their fictitious c .verings.'" Myr.E LioHT-IIot seKeepers Appointed ?

GEORGE TO IP.V A EE A IRS. Corretpondenrt of The Star. Georgetown. May 30,1S57. Our citizens generally will doubtless )*? pleased to learn that Georgetown is noon to be graced again with at least one handsome military com pany which it can call its own. Some eight or ten years since, on all public occasions, ourstreets were all alive with the numbeis. and handsome ly adorned with the brilliant uniforms of our turee companies, viz: The Potomac Dragoons, Independent Grays, and Morgan Kittcmea. Frum some cause, however, they all disbanded, and ever since we have been compelled, however re luctant, to acknowledge that there was not patri otism enough among our 10,0W inhabitants to keep up one good military company, as an orna ment to the town, or safeguard fur protection in case of riot or anything of the kind. The re proa, h, we are pleased to know, is soon to Ih wiped out. A number of our patriotic young men have formed a company called the George" town City Guards, and have elected the follow wig gentlemen as officers. Captain?J. Owens Ber ry; First Lieutenant?John M. Waters; Second do?Andrew Jackson Jones; Fiist Sergeant John B.Davis; Second do. James A White. They have already enrolled thirty members, theif uuiforms are now being made, and in a very sLort while we expect to see our streets enlivened by the strains of martial music, the glittering uni forms, and martial appearance of the Guards, out on their lirst parade. The following business came up before our Board of Common Council last night: A message from the Mayor in reference to the Long Bridge by the Washington authorities, and a recommendation that the Georgetown Corpora tion sue out an injunction against the same; re ferred to Boftrd of Aldermen. A protest of Charles Dodge, in reference to Koad Street ; referred to streets committee. Mr. Thomas presented the bills of Dixon A Gordon for coal and wood, and Mrs. Lang for re freshments; referred to claims committee Mr. Thomas, lroin claims committee, reported a reported a resolution In favor of the assessors; also a resolution in favor of II. Polkinhorn. Mr. Fearsoti, from police committee, to whom was referred a petition of sundry persons on Wa ter street asking for an additional night watch, rej>orted unfavorably, and was discharged from further consideration of it. Mr. Seymour, from grievances committee, to whom was referred Mrs. Crown's petition, a?ked to be, and was. discharged f 0111 the further con sideration of it. He was also discharged from the further consideration of Mrs. Becraft's and Win. Noyes's petitions. Mr Seymour, from same committee, reported a bill for the relief of Miss Caroline Mackall. Mr. Thomas introduced a resolution requesting the President and Directo.s of the Metropolitan Railroad to make a report of what moneys have b>-e:, expended >ince June, l>t, 1?55, and forwhat purposes, Xc ; adopted A resolution from the Board of Aldermen in re lation to the inai ket house bridges, was received and r< f.-rred to streets committee. A resolution for the relief of W. II Fletcher was read three and passed. A resolution also passed permitting the African congregation, under the charge of the Rev Mr. Hoover, to hold a series of meetings, the number of nights to be discretionary with the Mayor. A resolution in relation to the school tax fund w.isoffered by Mr. English, had its third reading and passed. The above resolution provides for the carrying on of the Georgetown Schools for this year, and appropriates for that purpose two thousand dol lars, the school tax fund?S* 1,092?included Yeas? Messrs.

The Gen eral Synod has drawn up a covenant to present to the Evangelical Alliance at Berlin, Prussia, this year, and intends to prpsent a similar one to all the Protestant Churche*; so as to endeavor to sus tain the principles of the Protestant Reformation forever. The resolutions were referred to the committee on church policy. The church extension committee made a report, which was read and accepted.
