EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNESDAY M, 1947. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. Tha Union, noticing the election of Colonel Cummin?, of Missouri, to fill the Governorship of Utah. explains another series of difficulties likely to arise in that Territory, which, unless the sabjeet be prudently handled by Congress, will give rise to unterminable trouble?saying : " Th? difficulties to be encountered In Utah are more numerous and complicated than 1* now gen erally supposed Among them may be Incident ally mentioned that Brlgham Voting claims a title to alt the lands in the Territory, and ha* never recognised the United State* surveys. None of his follower* have purchased lands in accordance with our laws. Hence, one of the delicate duties of the Federal court* of that Territory will be to establish and maintain the rights or those who may hereafter purchase in accordance with our laws Not an individual in all Utah now holds a foot of land the title of which 1* derived from the United States, and It follows, under this strange condition of things, that all parts of the Territory are at the present time open to pre-emp tion. In view of the fact that the Mormons have nettled on the soil in Utah, if they will behave hereafter in good faith to the Government, there can be no doubt that Congress will grant to them, individually, rights of pre-emption? each to the land on which he has settled??nch as. under our public lands system. have be*n secured to other settler? The ftict that. except through action of the Government hereafter to take place, none of them can acquire a good title to a foot of tho land of the Territory, strikes us as likely to operate favorably in the final settlement of all the diftculties in that quarter The influence of property is all pow erful, and. sooner tha i risk tho result of their labors of years?a*d noue others are more in dustrious and economical?they will bo very apt to abandon any idio*yucraciu.-<and positions which, if persisted in. threaten to end in such looses to theaa. The lutelligruefr is in a quandary concern ing " the Kansas Knot," which, it confesses, it has never been able to understand. In its ef fort of this morning to unravel it. we take the liberty of assuring its conductors, it merely suc ceeds in doing something toward? defeating its own object. Thus, instead of explaining eor reetly the position of the South upon pending questions there, the Intelli%mc*r adopts the abolition view of that position, which it enforces with its customary ability. Now. Thf South holds? 1st. That all who are legitimately entitled to a voice in the adoption of the State constitution in Kansas, are those who were; bonn fide inhab itants of the Territory when the members of the* convention were chosen?a day or two dince. 2d. That, under the law, the convention is empowered to present the constitution 'Uraetly I to Congress, or to refer it back to the bona fitle L Toters of the Territory, first. 3d That those entitled to vote Sctr Bcmbfft of tha convention who refused to do so. aro a? legally bound by its action as though they ha? \ availed themselves of that privilege. 4th That to refer the oonstitution to airv others than thoee entitled by law to vote upoai it. will be to insure that the abolition organiza tions m New England and elsewhejo that have assumed to regulate the in9titutigas of Kansas, will settle the question wheth>* slavery shall or shall not be legalized in ta? proposed State; as they can and will despatch thousands of their emisaarries into the Territory to vote upon the question which tVy will be practically invited to determine, as explained ab<jve. unless tho convention takes due precau tion to prevent persons not legally entitled so to do, from voting on it. 5th The South in Congress will, to a man. resist to the last any and every effort to legalise any illegal solution of the Kansas imbroglio; because, to permit such a solntion to triumph, will be to insure a speedy dissolution of the Union, that can only be maintained by check ing the encroa?hsaents of abolitionism, instead j of succumbing lo them We shall have some thing to *yon this subject to morrow.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. OTER-Doisn THE TaiNo?We need hardly repeat here that we are no advocate for the n moval of Democrats from offioe, unless upon substantial grounds for malfeasaooe, iocompe tency, or infidelity of boom sort or other ; and that nothing so disgusts as as effort* to discredit or rum individual gentlemen, oojy because, holding office which others desire, they are in their way. More or leas cases, embracing proof of the want of integrity of the genus small-poli tician in the matter of getting office, have of late come to our knowledge, which, in truth, turn us sick at the stomach, and make us long for the privilege of strapping the backs of the whole race. A case in point came to our knowl edge to-day, sufficient to make one's blood boil the case of a quiet, inoffensive gentleman, ineupablo, ^ n*ture, habit and association, of entertaining a sinister thought or being guilty '^proper action, who, because he stands o cially in the way of the schemes of specimens of the genus mentioned above, has been most atrociously slandered by them, to the fool-hardy point of putting on paper " charges'' against his official and political integrity, whereby, fortunately lor him, an opportunity was afford ed tor proving that malice, arising wholly from a desire to oust him for the benefit of another and much less worthy man, was alone at the bottom of the formidable string of allegations essayed to be imposed on the appointing power. That their conspiracy failed, most signally, is a matter of course. Nevertheless, such a failure, though choking off the particular worthies en gaged in it. can have little or no effect in saving the officers ot the Government from the nuisance of similar efforts on the part of similar persons in otbe? cases, which are constantly being essayed. W e long since came to the conclusion that no man is thoroughly versed concerning the most disgusting features of frail human na ture, until circumstances have revealed to him all the mysteries and miseries of office-seeking. Illi strathV).?The story published below wo republish from the New York Evening Po\t. as embracing a capital illustration of the utier humVjuggory of ''Spiritualism." The application of any such nonsense to tho practi cal affair of life is, after all, the real touch stone by which to try it. Tho story is a capital one: lioo d Backers?Ax Incident or Spiritual -A long-bearded customer recently entered a spiritual bookstore in this city, and applied for an Agency. He proposed to take a large quantity of books to bis part of the country, "away uut * /est," where he lepiesented that be could soon jell them, as he was assured by the "invisibles." The enterprising bookseller was of course de lighted with this prospect of a sale; bnt his en thusiasm was somewhat dampened when the long beaided gentleman rcuiaiktd that he had no money and wanted the books entirely upon credit. r '?Are you responsible !" was the natural inqui ry of the merchant. "Perfectly." "W hat evidence of your reliability can vou fur nish ?" '?I have the best of backers?men whose names you know well." The merchant's countenance brightened. 4 ? V crv well,- said he, "let us see your papers." Thereupon the customer presented the follow ing document: ' To teuom it may concern: We, the under signed, having been acquainted spiritually with 4"r- > of , Wisconsin, for many years, recommend him as perfectly reliable, and would not be afraid to trust hint to any amount. "George Washington, Thomas Jeffer?o2*, Henry Clat, Thomas I'aise, John Milton, aud others. ' Through Jane E , medium." The bookseller remarked tLat the backers were good if the medium was reliable; but he thought on the whole, be Would prefer to keep the books The customer hereupon denounced the booksel ler as an impostor, telling him that he did not believe in his own doc trines, and that the spirits would expose his duplicity to the world Of this he felt assured by the spirit of prophecy Within him. Tue bookseller was not convinced Tenoerep.?Our impression (derived from data on which we place confidence) is that Mr. ilaliday, the recently elected Collector of the Corporation of Washington, has tendered to Mr. Win. Cooper, of the Seventh Ward, one of the two clerkships of his bureau or office. Mr. Cooper, who being thoroughly acquainted with the city's affairs, will mttke a capital officer, by the by. was the master printer with whom Mr Ilaliday served his apprenticeship. We men tion tho fact because, undersuch circumstances, his selection by Mr. H. shows that Mr. Cooper was a kind and faithful master and guardian, and that the new Collector is properly impressed with gratitude and respect for his old employ er's kindness and good qualities. V.'o may add that, but for the tact that the pay of Mr. J no. D. Brandt, of the Sixth Ward, ha* been recently increased by the Government, in his present position iu the Washington Navy Yard, we think it highly piobable that he would have filled the other clerkship under the new Col lector, which ho is understood to have de clined. Mr. Cooper is an Old Line Whig, and Mr. Bniudt a Democrat. 1 he recently elected Corj?onition officers take their places in the conduct of the Corporation's affairs on W ednesday next. Toe Governorship ok Utaii ?We mention ed a day or two since that Col. Cummins of Mis souri, had probably been called to this position, and subsequently have learned nothing to shako our confidence in that impression, though there were doubtless other gentlemen pressed on the Executive for that office. By the by, we may not inappropriately add that Col. C. has not been an applicant for it. Or, in other words, that the office sought him?not he. the office; which fact tells no more forcibly for his high character and qualifications for it, than for the determination of President Buchanan to disre gard the solicitations and "claims" of every and any politician, when the necessities of the public service make that course his duty to his trust; which not unfrequently occurs in those times of indiscriminate struggling for Federal office. "Srrrraa."?The New York Times occa sionally roasts the Herald most unmercifully, and never more effectually than when showing up the baldness of its charlatanism,?as in its issue of Monday last, in quoting, in parallel half columns. Emerson's English Traits, chap ter x v., with the Herald's London corrcfcpon dcnce of the 6th of June, made up entirely of thefts from that work, thus palmed on the American public as original. It strikes us that if the correspondential department of the Her ald costs half the fabulous sums its proprietor is in the habit of boasting that it costs, he is fairly entitled to receive better treatment at the hands of his employees. Sensible.?"Ion," of the Baltimore Sun, we perceive, comprehends clearly the points of the I tah imbroglio so far as the rights and duties of the General Government in connection with it are concerned. In his letter to- lay, he ex presses upon the subject views identical with those not unfrequently enforced editorially in the Star?as follows: ? The idea that they ran be exterminated or ex pelled from the country, or that their fanaticism will lie repressed by force, is wholly absurd Treason against the constitution and laws of the United states maybe punished,and this istheex tent of the power of the Frdeial Government over this matter. " There is nothing in the constitution that jtts tifl?*s a cru<adea'ain*t polygamies any inore titan against abolitionists, or Romanists,or Calvinists, or seventh day prophets The anti-slavery jour nals are the fiercest of all In opposition to the Mormons. If they can find constitutional power for one crusade they ran for another. But the administration docs not share in the extravagant views whirh arc put forth on this *ubjert, and the lnstrueflons to Governor Cum mtn^s will be to take care that the laws of the United States be obeyed In tfce Territory, and lo exert every constitutional power to secure the due administration of justice. * HLiQBTirV Di9GRr.fTi.ED ?A friend in the country, evidently not " up to snuff, ' advocates a display of American national indignationyb account <Jf the infection of the Dallu-Clarerfdon treaty, as follows: Editor of fl? Star:?When the English Am - biwaador plays with two ar?j In his game ol "high, low, jack," and lose* his game. e. g., when before the St. George's Society he leada out to capture, to caDtivate, and blind our national vanity, and in a few days presents the rejection of the amendments to the Central American treaty, should not the whole American people, from the highest officer of the Government to the lowest "subterranean," treat him with nil the contempt from which he is not shielded by virtue of his office ? People of the United States stand by the rules you have chosen for yourselves. Outis 1 Mr. " Outis" will please take notice that at the St. George Society 's entertainment, Lord Nupier played simply the role of Lord Napier; whereas, in presenting the rejection of the treaty, he acted the British Ambassador. The rejec tion was the work of his Government, not ol himself; for he is well known to have been an earnest advocate for its acceptance as amended Our country friend, however, evidently does not know that nobody but himself cares the snap of a finger for the rejection, which has dis turbed no nerves on this side of the herring pond but his own. All the Fowls not tkt Dead?The New York Evening Fast republishes the following card as the result of the success of the Free Soilers in carrying the city of St. Loui9 about two and a half months ago, (and thus inducing the more rapid settlement up of the vacant lands in the State :) " Land Office, Waijaw, Mo., June 13, '57. " On account of the large amount of lands sold at this office during the last (wo ami a halt months, which has been over 5tX),Uj() acres, being for the month of May alone 247,-'l3'2, this office has been closed. Due notice will be given when it will be opened again. ,4 G. N. B. Dodsox, Register." We need hardly add that the Warsaw land district of Missouri is in a section of the State, wherein an abolitionist would be in about as bad a fix, if his sentiments were known, as in a certain unmentionable place, ' without claws." Tho idea that the triumph of the Free-Soil ers in St. Louis could instantly produce the result the Pott attributes to it. in such a locality es pecially, is worthy of the charlatanism of the propensity of its presses to impose on the igno rant among their readers. The Naval Courts of Inquiry.?To-day, Court No. 1 took up the case of ex-Lieut. Har rell. Tho following gentlemen have so far been examined in it. Viz: Lieut. J. M. Frailey, Commodore J. II.

able for the season, and the accounts of the grow ing crops, especially those from Ireland, are more than usually encouraging. The reports of the condition of trade in the manufacturing districts are generally more en couraging than for some weeks past, but the dis position seeins to prevail in many quarters that the production must 1?e lessened in some degree, in order to avert a further fall in prices. The British public has lost a shining light, a ready wit, a powerful writer, and a thoroughly honest man in the death of Mr. Douglas Jerrold. He died on the 9th instant, of rheumatic gout, after an illness of ten days Mr. John Lawler, one of the Young Ireland party, has got a government situation In Aus tralia. A - Vigilance Committee/* on the system some time since adopted in San Francisco, California, has b"en established in the ancient town of Gal way to prevent the exportation of potatoes. B. Burch, mate of the American ship Frank Pierce, from New Orleans, has been held to bail in Liverpool to answer the charge of shooting and slightly wounding John Ward, the second officer. No movement of importance had taken place with the English force in China. Great discon contcnt prevailed at Canton, and Yeh'a inactivity had made him unpopular. Hong Kong trade was quiet. The silk crop threatens to be short in consequence of long droughts. " The London Shipping Gazette publishes a note from General Cass to Lord Napier, replying to the represental ions the latter had made to "the United States government touching oppressive treatment received l?y seamen on hoard American vessels. Mr. Cass believes that the law now in force are sufficient to check the evil complained of, and that where the ottWider* escape punish inent the fault must be chiefly in defective proof. The ejection movements 'are the prevailing topics in French |>olltics. The accounts are con tradictory. One says that the white and red re publican pnr.'ies have fused and completed their list of candidates, including General Cavaignac Another, that finding such fusion impossible the whites have fused with the old constitutional par ties, nominating a common list of candidates, headed by Cavaignae. The ultra moutanists have declared in favor of an active interest in the elec tions. There have been general rains throughout Ire land, which largely benefitted the growing crops, and giving promise of great abundance. The crops present so promising an appearance that it is hoped the next harvest will nearly suffice for the entile consumption of France. The Spanish and Mexican difficulty Is still un settled. Distmbancee still occur anions the humbler classes in Spain, iu consequence of the high price of food. A serious disaster had occurred at Florence The ?cenerv in the theatre took tire, causing a panic, which resulted in the death of 43 |<ersons. and the wounding of l.*H others. The Sacred College at Rome has contracted a loan of 20,000,000 francs with M. Rothschild, for the purpose of calling in the present wrctched corner coinage. At Bologna, on the 5th instant, Pius the Ninth crowned the image of the Virgin, much venera ted by the Bolognese His Holiness add-essed a speech to the people. Fifty thousand inhabitants from tLe north of Italy have arrived at Bologna. The prosjiects of the Italian silk groweis are rep-csented to be unfavorable, and the price of silk is enormously high throughout the whole of the Austro-Itaiian districts. The Emperor of Austria has signed an ordi nance which prescril?es that two-thirds, at least of the public functions of Hungary are to be con fided to natives. The Empress of Austria Is said to be extremely dejected at the recent loss of her daughter. Her Majesty weeps, it is said, Incessantly, and only leaves her own apartments to go to the church attached to the palace. The Federal Assembly of Switzerland met on the Sth inst The ine*?age of the Federal Coun cil recommends the ratification of the treaty rela tive to the affairs of Neufchatel. A dispatch from Constantinople announces that the Poite had demanded of the Belgian Govern ment the recall of its ministers. The Belgian Government has refused to comply with the de mand. Shanghai dates to the 20th of April report that the town of Hokow in the Keangasee province, had been taken possession of by the rebels. The exports or tea from Hong Kong up to April amount to 50,000,000 pounds, against 80,txm,000 pounds last year. GEORGE TOWN A FFA IKS. Corrtij'ondcnct of The Star. Gkoruktowm. June24, 1S57. There is a perfect dearth of news of every kind and character in our city just now. There is not even a passing breeze of any kind?religious, po litical, mercantile, or of any other nature?etirring this morning, sufficient to cause even a ripple upon the face of the waters. All is quiet as a Mav morn, smooth as the bosom of an undisturbed lake. Our merchants and others have ceased to grumble about the suspension of navigation upon the canal, and the consequent prostration of the heavier descriptions of trade, and are beginning to submit patiently to the calamity, In the hope that a brighter future awaits them. I'p to the present time we hear of no prepara tion for a public celebration of the approaching national anniversary. But a few years ago it was celebrated by our citizens generally in a manner in every respect appropriate and Interesting, viz by a union celebration of all the Sabbath sAiools At an early hour in the day the schoels were all assembled at one point, in some one of the churches, where the blessing of Heaven was sup plicated upon them and our common country Alter which the line of march was token up for some shady grove where the dav was spent in a ii a iner well calculated to elevate the mind and gladden the heart, and where all was good order good feeling, and good cheer. Who does not sigh for a return to this good old system of cele biating the Fourth of July. After the 1st of July all dogs running at large will catch fits, get shot or something else. We learn that some hopefuls have anticipated the officers in this work, and have already commenced poisoning them. We have heard or several val uable ones that have been killed on the premises or their owners by the administration of strych nine or some other poison. The object in all such cases, we presume, has been to pave the way for pilfering or some other depredation. Owing to the very light stock of each there Is but Uttle doing in tne Flour or Grain market; no material change in prices has occurred since our lant. The following vessels have arrived since our report of Monday: OUr Packet schr Aictlc, Warren, New York to P A A H.
