EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: MTt RDA V May 30, 1M7. SPIRIT Of THE NOR XING PRESS. The l>ifUi??nc*r, in commenting upon the oration to General Walker in New Orleans, thinks? '? Tli' t one who hit deliberately renounced the high railing and proud n?m? of a "citizen of the United State* ! to t>ecome a roving adventurer under a far other banner than that of the stripes and the*, and who has thus expatriated him self In contravention of our municipal law, as well as in defiance of the law of all civilized na tion)*. should. at the clone of a career matked by the carnage of hi* deluded followers and the op. pressioa of those to whom he came in the guise of a chimpion a id d- liverer. he welcomed by the plaudit* of "ten thousand" voices in the streets of .in American city, cannot 1h? regard'-d as a very happy augury for either the intelligence, human ity or patriotism of those who participated in sueh ill-diieeted acclamations." The Union is occupied with new*matter* and correspondence WASHING TON *'ElVrS AND GOSSIP. 4*WllEM THE (lOVEItSMtXT WORK* HERE ark Fmstinn" ? is a common expression among those who reflect little upon the progress of the country in agriculture, the art*, indus trial improvement*. Ae , Ac. It involves an entire misapprehension of a fact assuredly in cidental to the future of Washington, if the Union holds together snd this city continued to be the Seat of it* Government. So long as the3e two things continue. ?? the Government Works here*' will never be 44 finished." As our coun try increases anywhere, in population ; as new railroads, farms. water-courses.

Ac., ccme into use?all requiring the transaction of m?re business on the Government s behalf in this city?so must the edifices nud facilities for its transaction multiply. When Franklin was Postma. ter General, it will be remembered, all tho accounts of the General Post Office Pepart mcnt. of all descriptions, were kept in a single ledger Now. thousands are required to the same ?nd. From the removal of the seat of government to Washington city uutil to-day, the Govern ment has been altering, extending, building, a^d in every conceivable w?y adding to the fa cilities f<>r the transition of its business here: increasing it.- annual expenses of that descrip tion pan pa**n with the increase of the impu tation of the country and of its industrial re sources Vet. to-day. the pressure upon its eramped facilities here is almost a? great a* at any moiuwut in the last half century. No bet ter type of the expansion of our national terri tory indti-try. numbers, power and interests is to fce conceived, than is involved in the growth ot 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 tho magnificent wing of the Patent Office build ing. subsequently completed for its temporary accommodation, i* absolutely required for the purposes for which it was originally designed? for the accommodation of branches of the Pat ent Offi.-e lJiirean. which expands so rapidly in importance as a business institution. In the next year or two a new structure for the accommodation of the Interior Department must necessarily bo 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; al?o new Ftste. Xa-ry and War Department buildings, each one of whwh must be larger, and cost ten times as mach as all thr^e of the buildings now thus occupied A new City Prison of at least double the ca pacity of the pre?ent one. must also be almost atom* built, with ail the improvements made necessary by tho increased skill, genius and desj-eration of rascality over those qualities of the rascality of the time? when the present ore wa? built. We might mention a dozen other public improvements which all reflecting and informed persons are well aware must be con structed here within the next decade, by theend ol which, tho advance the country will have made in the meanwhile will as forcibly suggest the necessity for new ones as yet undreamed of lie who entertains the idea that the Gov ernment can ever cease putting up great struc tures and making vast improvement here: ma<t ?urelv ba looking forward to the advent of the era when oar country wHl cease gTowing in power, commerce. agri?ultare, population, and In the ai^s and science*. Tub Eni> On't ? There is a moral in the cfvd of Walker ? burglarious raid on Nicaragua that should be enforced on the American public mini in these times, by all really interested in the future character of the population of the United States Hence the persistence with which we k*ep the subject before the Star'* readers, under a sense of moral duty which has not permitted U4 to flag an instant for long yeais in its discharge. We rejoice to know that our jseition on this subject and the earncsuiesi with which it wa? defended has done at least its share in bringing about the expulsien of tho-e who disgraced the name of Americans from Nicaragua In ao doing wc have d'-ne much toward- reopening the Niour.tguan isthmus route to the commerce and travel of our countrymen, as well us to demonstrate to the comprehension of all Americans, that those who would get such by treachery, murder and rubbery abroad, will as surely in the end fall victims before the high er law of a ius' Providence as those who essay to li^e by murder, robbery. Ac., in our own land wiil pay the law's penalties of their of fences against the statutes of the land. We subjoin the following article on this Nicaraguan theme?a* being well worth perusal?from the New York L'vi iinnchil Advertiser of Thursday evening last: The K.m> at J.ast ?We chronicle to-?lay the ce.taiu flight of Walker from the scene of hi* pi'atieat ell'?: ts. The marvel u> all persons who Vave l<*>k*Mt dispassionately at the origin, nature and progress of his expedition, is that he has ?nab!'-d so to postpone the catastrophe, or to aaaapc vllk his life. There is. however, scwrely loom f ?r doubt that the allied forces were quite willing that his life should be spared and the lives of the remnant of his force*. J; Is scarcely nupponahle ti.'t with such a aumet|-al superiority, whatever lark of vigor and energy may belong to the race* ai.d climate of Central America, tUey could not long Wfore this have annihilated the iutn.dera or ? uiilIy flrlovd them as to render ?e;taiii surrender or death by star vat. on Looking at the whole matter, we still incline to the belief already expressed \n these columns, that it was the policy of ite allied government to allow Walker to escape, after ln flietiitft unou him juat enough of protract*! Mif lering ami mortifying inactivity to etf.-. iually iob flllibusterlsm of its factitious popularity in the Unlt? d States, and avoid the excitement to revenge which tlie slaughter or execution of Walker anil his followers would Ik- likely to create in some part* of the Union. ?? This will doubtless lie the effect of the con clusion of Walker s raid, whether such was the policy and Intention of the allies or not.

But,Tor laca of a sound moral sense and sober Jidgnwot, piteously the?e qualities have been wasted . To what base s?nd immoral purposes have they been devcted A id v hi a fruition! Thousands of lives sacrificed at me shrine of pestilence and pi - ratical warfare For of the thousand* who flocked to bis standard, probably not five hundred survive at this hour: and <?f this scanty remnant perhaps one-half urf doomed to life-long dispjinf, Ann the others are demoralized in principle, and for life unsettled in purpose. " Add to this the misery that has been inflicted upon families, the damage done to our national remitatiou and lo public morals, the slaughter and destruction wrought In a neighboring and friendly country, and the wealth expanded, with the many indesorilwble evils that have followed and will yet follow in the wakeof the expedition, and who, with a human impulse in his heart can fail to regard the whole business with horror and unqualified condemnation ? And then what has been achieved ? Not an acre of territory has been acquired. Not a cent of returns for the tens of thousands of dollars expended. Not a single foot added to the area of ljberty to compensate for the unjust means employed professedly for that ob ject. The history or the expedition from the first ia one of expenditure, slaughter, demoralization and?utter failure. ' Walker and hi* companion*ought to he tried and punished by their own countrymen for their bold and persistent violations of their country's ? law;; hut we have a very faint expectation that they will l?e, albeit our national reputation de mands their indictment at the hand# of the United States Government It cannot now l?e pleaded 1 that Walker and his followers have expatriated j themselves or are beyond the reach of the laws of ! the United States; and it surely will not lie con ! tended that their temporary absence from the ' country screens them from the operation of their \ country's laws, now that they have returned. It I is easy to see where such a doctrine would lead. But, although the Government may be indispo-w-d or unable to vindicate the national reputation by I the punishment of these its citizens, wc indulge ! the hope that the filibustering proclivity of the ! restless spirits among us has, for a time at least, i received its quietus. Twice within a few years ] has it been proved, upon a scale of considerable magnitude, that fllibusterism is both unprofitable j and disastrous. It was so in Cuba?it has been ho j in Nicaragua. And as long as moral principle is ! recognized among men, and the great law of cause and effect remains in operation, it ?niut be un ; profitable and disastrous. Nothing so palpably (initiated in wrong, and so defiant or morals, pa triotism and international justice, can l?e perma nently successful; and no temporary or partial I success should blind a nation to its iniquitous and ! unjustifiable character. ?? Nor with any man who retains his humanity ! can the most vociferous applause or the most flat I tering ovation* compensate for the consciousness of having violated nis country's laws, or stiflf, in the hours of folitudeand thought, the recollec tion of the misery he ha? inflicted and the lives he has saeriflaed at the shrine of his reckless am bition. With all the glorification that greeted the fillibiister at New Orleans, and though he 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 bone* now lie bleaching on the soil of Nicaragua. The ir.ortifi<Mtion of utter failure cannot be oblit erated from their minds, anv more than the recol [ lection of tb" fearfhl cost or that failure can pass i from the public mind In a few months the I leaders of the piratical invasion of Nicaragua will i find their level in the public estimation, as have j the Cuban junta and the parties who then en snared so many adventurous citizens to their ruin ; bv the equally*piratical invasion of the island of . Cfuba. Time brings many mad schemes to soIkt j Kie?*?reinent, and disrol?es the most temptingly , attired iniquities of their fictitious c >verings." MoRE LlOHT-Hoi .*K K EKrERa API'OINTE n.?

GEORGETOWN AFFAIRS. Corrtfpondtnce of The Star. Georgetown, May 30,1S57. Our citizens generally will doubtless be pleased to learn that Georgetown is soon to be graced again with at least onw handsome military com pany which it can call its own. Some eight or ten years since, on all public occasions, our streets were all alive with the numbers, and handsome ly adorned with the brilliant uniforms of our three companies, viz: The Potomac Dragoons. Independent Giays, and Morgan Riflemen."frem some cause, however, they all disbanded, ai d ever since we have been compelled, however re luctant. to acknowledge that there was not patri otism enough among our 10.000 inhabitants to keep up one good military company, as an orna ment to the town, or safeguard for*protection in case of riot or anything of the kind. The re proach. we are pleased to know, is soon to be wiped out. A number of our patriotic youn" men have formed a company called the George" town City Guards, and have elected the following gentlemen as officers. Captain?J. Owens Ber ry; First Lieutenant?John M. Waters; Second do?Andrew Jackson Jones; First Sergeant John B Davis; Second do James A. White They have already enrolled thirty members, their uniforms are now betng made, and in a very short while we expect to see our streets enlivened by the strains of ma:tial music, the glittering uni forms. and martial appearance of the Guards, out on their first parade I'he following business came'up Ixfore our Board of Common Council last night: A message from the Mayor in reference to the Long Bridge bv the Washington authorities, and a recommendation that the Georgetown Corpora tion sue out an injunction against the same; re ferrert to Bo.trd of Aldermen.
