EVENING STAR WASHINGTON ?IT YI THURSDAY Jui> 11, IMf. * SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The InttHtgtnrrr this morning continues its publication of the Supreme Cewrt's decision in the Dred Scott case, and contains a great miu of general news from all quarters of the globe Tbe Union contains a number of very able and interesting editorials upon various public questions?the conflict of the laws, the Know Nothingiim in New Orleans, tbe Cotton panic Ac. We also find In the Union an elaborate let ter from a Mr. Edward A. Pollaid. in defence of the career of Walker in Nicaragua, which, though replete with what appears to us to be singular mi-apprehensions of facts, the truth of which are now as well known to the world as the untruth of the telegraphic dispatches from New Orleans concerning Walker's ''victories." (which subsequently turned out to be defeats,) is bo well put together as to be likely to prove of some avail in the matter of generating sympa thy for his cause in the minds of the unthinking who are inclined to fancy that Americans can do no wrong Fortunately, however, the press in all quar ters of the country, have published the facts of his (Walker's) Central American career so widely, as that it will be difficult to induce sympathy for his cause in the breast of any one who believes in the propriety of respect for our own laws and the rights of others. That those who justify violations of all laws, human and divine, for tbe sake of bolstering money-making speculations, to gratify individual ambition, or under an honest hallucination with reference to the duty of American propagandism?and there are sfcch persons in the world, reader?should sympathize with the cause of the flillibusters it. Nicaragua is by no means remarkable; and to our mind illustrates forcibly the necessity for vigorous measures on the part of this Gov ernment within the law. to compel entire re spect for its every requirement in such matters. Our wonder is. that a gentleman of so much intelligence as the writer of the letter on which we are commenting evidently possesses, and we may add of the honesty of purpose with which he sets about the task of justifying such acta as were done in Nicaragua in the name of " Amer icanism.' can himself rest under such a cloud of delusion. To that we attribute his effort to give the color of heroism to the act* of the filibuster? in Nicaragua, the unvarnished particular* of which are known through the pens of hundreds of American sufferers under them to all in the Inited States who read newspapers. We pre sume that we hardly need assure those at a dis tance that any efforts to induce this Government to countenance a repetition of the late career of filibusterism in Nicaragua that may be essayed, will prove unavailing. NOTES BY THE WAY. [Editorial Corretpondenct of The Star.] STEAMING 05 THE ROAD?PENNED BT STEAM JlNE 6, 1857. I found a large number ot those whose ac quaintance I had made on " the excursion " upon tbe train of the St. Louis. Alton and Chi cago Railroad, the cars of which I entered a few moments ago?at S a. m.?bound for Niagara Falls, via Chicago. Detroit and Canada. They were still well pleased with every incident of the so far delightful trip, and aU of them were as lond in praise of St. Louis, as two days ago of Chillicothe. Really. I can conceive no more shrewd expedient than the entertainment of ti:e vast company, almost entirely of intelligent? active and leading business men. as she did en tertain them, to which St Louis could have resorted by way of fixing the attention of the whole country upon her remarkable ad vantages and unexampled, rapid and substantial im provement and prosperity. None of us can ever forget the impressions thus received, nor can any of us avoid, if we would, the conviction that in all the essentials of a great city?capital accommodations, busi ness connections and facilities, population, en terprise. 4c ?she immeasurably surpasses any of her rivals west of the Alleghanie?. The influence of such a conviction on the minds of the particular clas3 of persons who were her guests yesterday will make its mark on her fu ture?for she is not altogether independent (in commercial affairs) of the great cities and the travelers from the East aiming to reach points which there are facilities for reaching from ether Western capitals (as well as St. Louis) without paying her a visit. We are now again coursing over the prairies of Illinois behind the locomotive, which though carrying a double load?for there are some four hundred souls oa the train?is doing its duty up to time. Oar route lays east of North. On the day before yesterday, it will be remembered, we crossed the State from east to west; whereas now. we are now bisecting it from south to north. Thus I am enjoying the opportunity of seeing more of Illinois in a few brief hours than I could possibly obtain by any other route. After leaving the environs of East St. Louis? marshy, and therefore uncrultivable at present we encountered a large gang of Gipsies campcd upon a hillock overgrown with scrub oak. The CTJ~ th?? Gypsies!"?brought nearly all to the car windows, with a rush; and they were seen, only to be forgotten in a mo ment by most of my so curious companions. Xhe.r origin is involved in nearly as much mys tery as the Indian mounds on which I have already commented. Certain it is, that while living and wandering perpetually among the most cultivated races of the c viliied world almost ever since the light of Rome's great ness as a power of the earth went out, they have been the same wandering, nomadiac, thieving, uneducated and treacherous demi sarages they are at this moment; rejecting all the advantages and habits of fixed society every where. and changing in nothing at any time, even for a brief period That such has been their history for many centuries, impresses my mind with the belief that they are as distinct a race as the negro, whose skin so long as he car ries but negro blood in his veins, remains the same, whether born in Siberia or Boston, or on *'Afric's dusky shores/' The L nited States appear to be becoming ex ceedingly popular with them?too much so for tiie patience of those of our rural fellow-citi aens, the looks on whose hen-roosts are not ab solutely burglar proof. I find, ou inquiry, that they are an numerous here, out West, as in "V irginia and New York, where they are to be met in all directions. Yyt no one can give even a shrewd gue*s as to their number in the United hta*e?, or. indeed, with reference to anything whatever connected with them fbe prairie* of Illinois, on tbe Alton and Chicago Kai! road, within fifty miles of St. Louis, have been settled for twenty-five or thirty years, and are therefore regarded in this fast region as "an old country." The farm build ings upon them and the comfort surrounding those buildings are, therefore, much more sub stantial than elsewhere on our road in this State. There was nothing in and about these farms in sight from the car of a rail train going at speed, worthy of note, except the remarkable fecundity of the soil, and the care shown in breeding their cattle. * The mass of the fanners of Virginia and Ma ryland are far behind them in the selection of tbei-stock, I regret to have to write. Twenty-six miles out from St LouiJ we passed through Al ton, where a mob bang Lovejoy once on & time. It is a substantial nVer town just above the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri, de sign od by its \ ankce projectors long since to haTe outstripped St. Louis in the transaction of the business of the pwt Valley of the WMt. Just now its trade is canfined to its own imme diate neighborhood and to manufacturing work sold for the most part in the St Louis market, as the wares of Newark afesold from New York counting-houses, and those of LoweU from Bos ton. The State'a prison, a substantial stone building perched on a high hill, near its abrupt face (of rock,) is here, and sundry coal mines in neighboring hills are worked ; the mineral be ing, apparently, brought into town by the farm ers, in their ordinary two-horse wagons. From the manner of ita delivery I was not forcibly struck with the idea that coal mining could be a trade of great importance to Alton. Its principal street* are well built up with brick or stone. From the multitude in them and their appearance, I fancy that the business of loafing around the depot and staring at pas sengers on the train is so popular among them as that a large number of the indigenous, in very dirty shirts and dirtier boots, do little else beside. There are perhaps from ten to twelve thousand persons in Alton, and three hundred at least were there to gape at us. The route from St. Louis, through Alton, to Joliet?forty miles from Chicago?(the point of intersection with the Rock Island Railroad, and the first highland we encountered) is through a country made available for civilized men's use almost entirely through the facilities afforded by this railroad, the distance (stretch of country) being some 217 miles. True, the country around Bloomington,and one or two river villages, located on the banks of streams crotsed by the way, were previously in habitable profitably; but I ain not far out of the way in attributing all the industrial value of the extensive region, to which I refer, to the construction of this railroad. The soil is equal to any in the valley of the Mississippi, twenty bushels of wheat and fifty or sixty of corn, be ing fair average crops with them. They say, thirty of the former and seventy-five or eighty of the latter; which estimate I?put in my pipe Iand smoke. It is almost M nude of timber as the palm of one's baud of hair; while water is an article which the dwellers along the route ? know from dire experience, how to value, as one of the chicf blessings for which we ahould thank Divine Providence. Streams, runs and creeks, are so few upon these prairies as that not one settler in a hun dred enjoys the privilege of being sufficiently near one to avail himself of its so precious trea sure?water for all the purposes of the farm? without digging for it in the bowels of the oarth. Water holes (small ponds) arc to be seen in all directions in these prairies at this season. But two months hence, when the heat of the sun makes a double supply necessary to the health j and comfort of man and beast, not a drop will they contain. W. D. W?H. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. Home Agaix.?The editor of the Star return ed to Washington, from the Northwest, yester day evening, having traveled 2,58o miles since 6 a m. on the morning of the 1st inst. Or, in words, in nine and a half days. On this trip he "laid by" every night after about 11, ex cept on the night before last, when voyaging down the Hudson, on a steamer. He also "laid over" two days and a halfin the day time. It will be seen from these facts that the actual traveling time in which this journey was made, was probably as short as that in which the same number of miles were ever before accomplished. After leaving St. Louis he visited Chicago, De troit. and Niagara Falls, journeying to the lat ter point for two hundred and twenty or thirty i miles through Canada. From the Falls he re I turned home by the way of the interior cities of the State of New York and New York city. He mentions these details of his trip by way of illustrating what an immense scope of territory may be visited in this country in these days of railroad excellence, in a very brief time, with | cut the fatigue of traveling all night, which al ways unfits the voyager for persistent profit able observation. The Proposed Mketixg This After.voox. I pon such information as we have been able to obtain in the brief time elapsing since our re turn to Washington, wc are forced to the con clusion that the public meeting called for this afternoon is impolitic, and tmst that our fellow citizens will nbstain from attending it. The President. Mayor, and military authori ties require no such popular vindication of the propriety of their course to preserve the peace of this metropolis, when assailed as it was on the 1st inst., by a band of armed ruffians from a distance, whoso acts, we are persuaded, have found no countenance from the mass of the American party of Washington, who value the the privilege of living under a government that dulv protects the lives and legal rights of all citizens when assailed as on the occasion to which we refer. The unanimous press of the country?with the exception of a single newspaper?have ta ken occasion, each journal in behalf of the pub lic opinion where it is published, emphatically to applaud the promptness and energy with which the authorities here vindicated the ma jesty of the law. No such popular demonstration a: this meet ing proposes can add weight to sueh testimony in their behalf. The only effect of sach a meet ing. if held, it seems to us, will be to give rise to counter popular demonstrations on the part of some of the unthinking who may be inclined to view the questions involved in a partisan light The law has yet to pronounce its verdict on those who are to be tried for participation in the riot of the 1st instant, and any such demon stration leading to auch results as we explain, can hardly fail to give to the approaching trials something of a partizan character in some of their features ; and thus to defeat the ends of justice, which, it will be remembered, are not unfrequently thus postponed. While we accord to those who approve the proposed meeting due credit for being influ enced only by an earnest desire to vindicate the majesty of the law, we must be permitted to express the opinion that their mode of doing so. if carried out, will be more likely to defeat their object. Uxitkd States Mail Steamships to Eu rope.?We are requested to state that the fol lowing are the only United States mail contrac tors authorised to convey the United States mail between New York and Europe, via : E. K Collins Sl Co., between New York and Liverpool, running the steamship* " Atlantic " and " Baltic, ? and such other steamships as may be accepted for that line. The New \ork and Havre Steamship Compa ny. (Mr. Livingston, President,) between New ^ ork and Havre, via Southampton, running the steamships ??Fulton " and "Arago." Cornelius Vanderbilt, between New York and Bremen, via Southampton, running the steam ships "Ariel " and " North Star." The Star's Editorial Correspoxdexcb.? In another column, to-day, the Star's readers will find a letter descriptive of a portion of its ? litor's recent journey from St. Louis to Chi cago. Two letters, previously written, descrip tive of the great celebration in St. Louis, and concerning the past, present and futnro of that remarkable great city, which were mailed on Saturday night last in Chicago, hare not yet come to hand. So the letter we publish to-day appears out of its turn. When received, the missing letten will be duly published; and in the meanwhile we shall conclude the series by publishing one daily for perhaps the next fort night. The jonrney was undertaken to enable the writer to present to the patrons of the Star, solid information concerning the Great West, wherein many millions of eastern capital are now being annually invested, in many;eases upon intentional misrepresentations, and man frequently under the influence of the mania for getting rich in a hurry, which is so peculiarly a characteristic of our country. To the person thinking of investing " nest eg^" in the West, his letters, though written in a desultory vein, will prove of value, as well as to those proposing to travel in the northwest shortly.

The Great Railroad Celebration Di> ner.?Our friend of the Union says, this morn ing : '?The Editor or the Kvimxo Stah. on the great railroad excursion, Las furnished to that paper Interesting incidents and observations, ?'penned by steam and has, in this vocation, exhibited a wonderful decree of industry and tact. Not only has he been writing, but speak ing. for we perceive, in the account of the great dinner at St. Leuis (at which, we presume, he did his share of the eating) that he responded to the toast, "The President and Directors of the Great Trunk Une of Railways connecting the Atlantic with the Mississippi." " The editor of the Star, while acknowledging his penchant for ' good living''?and he'who cares nought for it is without soul to appreciate ?umborless blessings in one's reach, if one would live for aught but to hoard wealth?real ly cannot remember what toast on that oceaaion attracted his tongue from the savory things set before him. His lack of memory in this partic ular is perhaps attributable to a couple of bot tles of Catawba, by which he was so stoutly flanked, before he and his companions at either elbow gathered their contents within their main defences, by way of being amply prepared to stand the siege of such an occasion. His impres sion is that he was responding to a toast to The Press; but as he came away with somebody's shocking bad hat on his head, his recollection of the toast may be but "clear as mud.?' Points Decided.?The question whether, under the law, the results (articles collected by) of the U. S. Exploring Expedition must be transferred to the keeping of the Smithsonian Institution, having been referred by the Secre tary of the Interior to the Attorney General for his opinion thereon, that functionary has so decided. So. also, has he ruled that the Superintend ent of the Interior Department building is not entitled, lawfully, to compensation forthat ser vice. It seems that intending to accord him such compensation Congress made a mistake in wording the law. saying that ho should be so compensated for services rendered from 1835 to 1838 ; long before the Department existed. This clerical error has been adjudged by the Attor ney General to defeat the face of the law in qnestion He (the Attorney General; has further ruled thnt the money voted to Mary Gay. widow of an Indian agent killed by the Shawnee'. ($2,000.) must be paid to her from the Treasury, notwithstanding the fact that he died in default to the Government; which, under this ruling, must continue to look to his sureties to make good to the Treasury the amount thus its due. The Naval Courts of Ixqcirv.?To-day the case of Lieut. Bowers was finally disposed of before this Court, on the testimony of Capt. Kelly and Surgeon Folts, U. S. N? called by the Department, upon which testimony Lieut. B. submitted his case, asking simply to be put upon the reserved 1 l3t on leave of absence pay. Before Court No. 2, to-day, the case of Lt. Gibson being under investigation, the following witnesses were examined. Vii: Lts. Geo. U. Morris and John C. Carter on the part of Lt. Gibson, and Passed Ass't Surg'n Carrington. Capt. D. N. Ingraham and Lt. Parrott on the part of the Government. Before Court No. 3, the case of Capt. Lati mer still pending, Lieut. Almy and Capt. Hol lin?, U. S. N., have been examined to-day in behalf of the Government. Hon. D. E. Sickelsand Jons Kelly.?The story in the New York Herald of Monday last that Hon. John Kelly, ono of the members of Congress from that city, had resorted to per sonal violenco upon the Hon. D. E. Sickles, at the Democratic Convention of the City of New York, on Friday evening last, is toholly a fab rication. No such violence was attempted by Mr. Kelly upon Mr. Sickel*, and no threat to that effect was uttered. We make this correc tion in justice to all the parties concerned. A Regulation.?The Secretary of the In terior has been compelled, we presume by the pressure of the public business upon him. to issue instructions that hereafter his messenger may introduce into his room visitors only be tween the hours of 11 a. in. and 1 p. m. daily.

I now invite fherspecial attention of Housekeep ers to the NEW ARCTIC REFRIGERATOR, which is certainly in advance for the purpose of K-'pinr and Cooltnt Meats, Milk, Butter, Fruit, Wixes, Ac., of any article now before the public. All the compartment! are guaranteed dry and con sequently free from mould, moisture and impure odor. The principle of the ARCTIC REFRIGERA TOR, is clearly this: that the air leaves the ice at the temperature of 32 degrees, and falls in this con dition directly through the ice box,descending until it reaches the bottom, passing through the opening in th< centre division, then gradually expanding and ascending as it becomes warmer until it enters the ice again at the top of the ice box, thereLy causing a perpetual circulation, and no ventilation by hot ex ternal air is needed or permitted. The shelves of the ARCTIC are open work, to allow the free circulation of the air down about the aidee of vessels or articles from the shelves, thus entirely surrounding them with moving currents of oold air. 'J'hey open with double doors upon the front and top with lock and kev to each?being made out of seaoned lumber, in the very hes* manner.and hand somely grained, makes a desirable niece of Furni ture for a dining room, and have a water jar from which perfectly cold water can be had at ail times, without additional ice. The idea that a Refrigerator must he constantly supplied with a current of warm air from outside, by means of a ventilator at top or back, is entirely ex ploded. Its only effect is to keep np a supply <>f moisture, which as it enters is condensed upon the sides, nnu upou whatever the Refrigerator contains. We earnestly ask purchasers to examine this mat ter critically, and to buy the best Refrigerator ever made, which ?.? non* other than Ike Arrtf.
