EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: tRIDAY Juljr IT, 1*A7. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Union, to-day, continues its able dis cussion of the present phase of the Kansas question. The InteUurrnctra editorial columns arc, to day. devoted entirely to newj. The War Trail, or the Hr*T of the Wild Hor.sk ; A .Romance of the Prairie, by Capt. Mayan Rend. R. M. DeWitt, New York. For sale in this city by J. Shillington. This work, like the *'Scalp Hunters." " Ri fle Ranger?," and other tales of this author, have much of the true Cooper flavor, although the gallant Captain cannot well be said to be an imitator of that novelist. In the "War Trail 'we arc taken upon Mexican soil. The description of Mexican scenery is remarkably vivid ; and the minute truthfulness with which the /'turn and tbe fumtrj of that country are de plete I. gives a wonderful vraixrmUavcf to the otherwise rnoet improbable narrative Tbelove making in the story is simply detestable; but o{ this we do not complain. It would be strange indeed, it an author so thoroughly at home in forest and field, was equally so in the boudoir. We commcnd the ?? War Trail ' to our readers a* a Work they will not be apt to g.? to sleep over.

At the conclusion of tbe reception cercnionies, the guests will return to their carriages and be conveyed to their respective hotels.

On Monday afternoon the grand banquet by the citizens of Baltimore will take place at the ball of the Maryland Institute On Tuesday they will visit this city. The whole number of guests will it is said not exceed three huudred and tifty. Political.?The Vermont Democratic State Convention met at Rutland yesterday. Four hun dred delegates were present. Resolutions were adopted sustaining President Buchanan's admin istration, approving of the Died Scott decision and the course of Ciov. Walker in Kansas; advo cating a repeal of the prohibitory law. and di recting that an address to the people of Vermont l?e prepared. Resolutions of rcspect to the mem ory of Hou. W'm. h.

Thurston tor 'i'rensurer. 1 nE Bostox Post.?This able Democratic paper comes to us considerably enlarged, and in .? bran new dress. The Post we always thought was as handsome and excellent as possible, but the Improving process it lias lately gene through shows that it is even possible to '? paint the rose." The Post, we need hardly say. is the originator of nine-tenths of the good things afloat In news paperdom May it live a thousand years, and flourish like the Greene bay-tree. \ si.Low First at Kingstox, Jamaica. A letter from the I nited States Consul at Kingston, J*. males. states that cases of yellow fever had manifested themselves on board the packet steam ers at that port from St. Thomas, and thence com municated to other vessels in the harbor.

Benjamin F. Angel, of New York, Minister Resident to Sweden, in place of Francis Shroe der, of Rhode Island, recalled at his own re I quest. Mirabeau B. Lamar, of Texas. Minister Resi dent to the Argentine Confederation, in place of James A. Peden, of Florida, the present in cumbent. Wyman B. 8. Moor^jf Maine, Consul-General ior the British North American Provinces, from the 1st of September next, in place of Israel D. Andrews, of Maine, resigned.

Consul at Tahiti, i (Society Islands.) in place of William II Kel ley. of Massachusetts, the present incumbent. John F.

(Prussia.) in place of Frederic Sehillird, who is not a citizen of the United States. Samuel E. Fabens. Consul at Cayenne, to fill an existing vacancy. Francis M. Weems. of Florida. Consul at San ta Martha. (New Granada.) to fill a vacancy. James C. Dirickson. of Maryland, Commer cial Agent at Apia, Navigator's Islands, to fill an existing vacancy. Moses Jesurun. of New York, Consul at Cu racoa, (W. I. ) to fill a vacancy. The reader familiar with the public men of the day will perceive that tho President has made admirable selections in these appoint ments. Mr. Meade is a veteran legislative statesman, fully alive to the importance of extending our relation* with tlie great and stablo Power of the ?outh American continent to which ho is to ba accredited There are at this moment pressing | and hourly-inereasing inducements for closer j relations, commercial and political, between Brazil and the United States, than on our part with any other considerable Power 011 either side of the Atlantic. She is the only slavehold ing country upon whoso allegiance the United States may calculate in case of trouble with European Powers upon slavery questions; for her general interests in connection with African slavery are identical with ours. It should have been the policy of this Government tw nty years ago to sustain her. at least with our sympathies, against the usurpations of Britain, whereby, in assuming to put a stop to the importation of African slaves into her territory under her (Britain's; slave-trade treaty with us, she took the liberty of treating Brazil as though the latter was her colony, if not her conquered province. The time may come when a clash between England and the United States upon questions growing out of their respective poli cies with reference to African slavery, may make the sympathy and joint action of Brazil with us a matter of prime importance to our own future. Mr. Angel, of New York, is an accomplished gentleman, well read, traveled, and noted for sagacity and energy. He was an intimate friend ot the late Ex-Secretary Marcy, whose entire confidence he possessed, we know. His selection tor the post of Minister Resident at -Stockholm will be received with gr?.*at pleasure by the host ot Mr. Marcy's friends at home. General Lamar was formerly a President of the Republic of Texas, and is one of the most accomplished and popular citizens of that State. General Moor served a brief time in the Sen ate of the United States from Maine, and stands .is high intellectually and as a man of character and energy, as any other Democrat of thnt State His intimate knowledge of our business rela tions with the British North American posses sions in all their details, makes his selection fur the post he is to fill, the very best that could possibly have been made. T ?I K O V E R1. A NI, M Al I, Cos TR AC T. ?The W a> h - ington correspondent of the New York Cumin an,i liiiifnii f/ is essentially "disgruntled" by our recent exposure of the groundlessness of his complaints against the manner in which the 1 resident and Postmaster General have disposed of this subjeet, nnd discovers in our remarks a I?crsonal onslaught on himself. That we took oc asion to make it very plain that he knew little indeed of tho merits of the matter on which he was writing, is true. Further thau that, we are very sure there was nothing what ever personal in our reply. In his last article uj>on the subject, while denying vehemently that he is an habitual grumbler at the Department, he grumbles away at a great rate against its action in the cases of the ocean mail steamer lines, accusing it of settled hostility to them. Also, on account of its refusal to initiate measures for the construc tion of a new post office in New York city to cost three or four times the sum appropriated by Congress for one there, and again, agair.st its action years ago with reference to a daily mail from Now Orleans to Louisville, Ac . Ac. More persistent growling we have rarely read than is embraced in his letter now before us, and yet he never grumbles at the Department. J?ot he ' We have no spacc to-day in which to review his complaints on the points mentioned above? nor is that necessary on our part; for they arc all concerning dead and almost forgotten issues. >\e however, invito him to a calm inspection Of I ostmaster General Brown's order directing he contract to be made to transport this over haul Calilorma, inr.il. He will therein i>ercoive hat not a word is said about its transportation k-Yu' UIS tQ Mcmrhis hy w?tcr, against which he raises such an outcry. Tho terms of the order make it the duty of the contractors to run u to the best advantage, so as to intersect with the mail from Memphis, at Little Rock. As they have but twenty-five days in which to make the journey between St. Louis and San raiM5W00 ^ey will be very apt to send it as as far out from the former city by tho Iron Mountain railroad, as possible, for that pene trate!- from St. Louis almost directly in the di rection of the^oint of junction. We shall not waste words in exposing the un soundness of his idea that a difference of 3,000 ket of elevation in crossing the mountains is not likely to make a difference in the comfort and convenience of getting to California over land in the winter. As northernish as he is evidently, in all his sympathies, we fancy that when the thermometer ranges upon his favorite route between 16 and 26 degrees below zero even he would prefer a route located in a more genial clime His main present objection against tho route chosen is, that it is without settlements. To this, we have to say that it cannot possibly bo a valid objection a moment ??Usr the road ?hall have been stocked by the contractors, whose thirty-milcs-apart stable . ,3 lons WlU in a few months strew settlements exi'1t8on,H1Mt,yLIUOr? l4cnUfu,,y than t?>ey will xi on the other route for years to come. j,;"'*' "* ,a*a *?? route i, to, b i f""' *?'> " ""J" ?' ? t k can be economically and properly su,r<11 z 7 wcro about wllco applying to run it. ^ bosides, the President and the Department took due care to satisfy themselves of the practicabil ity of running it to advantago ere selecting it The data on which the eelection was made was the reports 0f careful surveys of the route by competent professional men ; not the interested representations of parties striving to discredit it m order to secure the selection of a different route, on which the Courier's correspondent evidently bases his sympathetic objections to the route selected. In a day or two it is our purpose to recur to this subject again, when we will place it in such a light before the public, by the publication of all the facts bearing on the action of the Gov ernment in the premises, as will, we think, at once close all controversy upon it. Thk Tf rkish Mission.?Letters have re cently reached tho United States that reflect much credit on the public spirit of the Hon. Carroll Spcncc, who now represents this Gov ernment ut Constantinople. They convey in telligence that on hearing of the precarious condition of the health of the Hon. Henry May. and that it is the result of his labors in the Democratic cause, and. further, that his physi cians have recommended a protracted residence in a milder climate as absolutely necessary in his case, he (Mr. Spence) wrote the Government here that he would gladly resign in Mr. May s favor, in the belief that the climate of Constan tinople is precisely the one best suited to cure the bronchial affection with which that gentle man is so sorely afflicted. In these times, when as in those of Mr Jefferson?" few die and none resign, such an offer to make room for even one who deserves so much at the hands of the Democratic party, is worthy of all praise. Mr. May was forced by his political friends of his district to bccoyie their candidate for Con gress, much against his inclination and with a certainty ot pecuniary loss. In the canvass, when he was effecting as much for tho cause as any other popular orator in the Union, bis health failed him through his exertions, and he was obliged to abandon tho stump, and has since been in so bad health that he has been compelled for the most part also to abandon his profession, in which he was ono of the most prosperous gentlemen in Maryland. Such re sults of his labors in behalf of the Democratic cause, independent of his commanding personal popularity and high charactcr, have generated tor him such sympathy in the Democratic ranks in Maryland as ncvei before existed there for any one else. As, l,y education, position in society, knowledge of the world and general capacity, combined, he is perhaps without a superior in tho country for the discharge of diplomatic duties, it is sincerely to be hoped that the President may feel at liberty, under the circumstances in which must act, to select Mr. May as the successor of Mr. Spence.

Our private advices from Cen tral America lead to the impression that Costa Rica is preparing to maintain her position in command of the Nicaragua Transit Route, if this Government will permit her to do so. That she is without a shadow of legal claim to it. we have already taken occasion to show. She will if possible, foment difficulties between the Leor.i ists and Chammorists in Nicaragua, in the hope of preventing the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between that country and the United States, which must necessarily l>o followed by a speedy treaty whereby we shall acquire the right to keep open the Transit route; and. if successful in that purpose, she will, for tho time being, assume herself to protect it while being run under the auspicesof some one to whom she will also assume the right to sell it. We. how ever, entertain no idea that her schemes will succeed. lirst. because we are very sure that all parties in Nicaragua will act as an unit against her plans there ; and, next, because this Government can never abandon its maturely taken position of refusing to acknowledge her jurisdiction over tho river San Juan and the lake of Nicaragua, without virtually handing over American public interests in that quarter to the keeping of Great Britain, whose influ ence is Costa Rica is in complete ascendancy. Accockts with States for Lands' Sales. Accounts have been stated between the United States and the State of Alabama, under the acts of 2d March, 1819, and 1th September. 1811, for tho two per cent, fund accruing to the latter upon the net proceeds of the sales during the years 1855 and 185fi, of tho public lands situated within her limits, and the sum ol $10,528.72 re ported to be due her on said account; and under the provisions of tho act of 1810, for the three per cent, fund accruing upon the lands as aforesaid, and the sum of $15,703 00 reported to be due on said account; making in the ag gregate $26,321.81. Accounts have likewise been stated between the I nited States and the Suits of Louisiana under the provisions of the act of 20th Febru ary, 1811, for the five per cent, fund accruing to the latter ujwn the net proceeds of the sales during the years 1?55 and 1850, of the public lands situated within her limits, and the sum ol 5*10,070.80 reported to be due her on said ac count. The accounts alluded to have been reported to the First Comptroller ol the Treasury for re vision und settlement. A Well-Deserved Compliment.?At the Annual Commencement of Harvard University, which took place'on the 15th instant, the hon orary degree of LL. D. was conferred on Thos. li. Walter, Esq., the Architect of the United States Capitol. Tho telegraph, in announcing this well deserved compliment, omitted Mr. Walter's surname altogether, and misprinted his middle (given) naiuo?Ustick?calling it Ustrick. Whose Portrait?? '?The Navy Department ban been presented, by a gentleman in Philadelphia, with a portrait of Commodore Decatur. The Star think* it "a val uable portrait of John Paul Jonen."?N. Y. Her ald. The Star took the word and judgment of the Chief CUrk ui the Navy DeparUijoat, foj it* rtatoment concerning the portrait in question. So the mistake, if one ha? occurred, is not the Star's. But tho truth is, there is said to exist great doubt in the Department concerning whose portrait it really is; not a few contending that it is intended to represent our friend. Judge Advocate General Carlisle, in undress uniform, with a salary of $5,000?when such a position in the service shall be created. Naval Coi rts or Isqciry.?Before Court No. 1, to-day. the case of ex-Lieut. T. H. Ste vens was continued, and Commander Alden and Lieut. Qibson were examined, the first on the part of the Government, and the second on that of Mr. F. The testimony in this case is to be closed with that of this last named witness, and Mr. S. will probably read and submit bis defence ere the Court adjourns for the day. Court No. 2, this morning took up the case of Lt. Augustus H. Kilty, (furloughed by the late Naval Retiring Board.) and Chaplain Lenhart and Commanders Rodgers and Perry were ex amined on the Government's behalt in it. Lt K's counsel are the Hun Reverdy Johnson and T. M. Blount, Esq. Before Court No. 3, the case of Lieut. Rhind is still pending. The testimony in it was closed yesterday, and this morning the Court was en gaged in the consideration of questions bearing upon it. It is expected that the defence of Ex Lieut. R. will be read to-morrew. An Army Officer Dead.?Second Lieuten ant Brayton C. Ives, First Infantry, U. S.

The Late Excitement in Kansas?The town of Do.'.iphan, in Kansas, was thrown into a slate of excitement on the 6th instant, in conse quence of a fracas l>etween Capt. John K. Boyd, formerly of South Carolina, and Capt Mitchell, one of Gen. Lane's aids. The latter, it appears, took exception to a portion of an oration deliver ed on the 4th by the former, and scut him a chal lenge to fight a duel with muskets at forty paces. The challenge was accepted, the parties met,and were about to Are when the civil otlicers arrested them. A letter says : W hi 1st the attention of the pro-slavery party was directed to the affair between the bellige rents, the free-soilers took thirty-seven of their muskets from a log house not far below the ho tel, and carried them to a free-soil boarding

house beyond Gen. Lane's mill. As soon as this fact became known, the pro-slavery party sent a committee to demand the restoration of the guns The free-soilers refused to give them up. The pio-slavery party toid them they would give them until two o'clock next day to return them, and if they were not then returned they would comeand take them. Runners were then sent out on the part ot both parties for reinforcements, and they came flocking in from all quarters, thoroughly prepared for battle. N ight came on, squads sti II continuing to come in. The storm of war was lowering and portentous. Gen. Whitiield deem ed it proper to send an express to Gov. Walker, iniorining him of th? condition of things, and to send the records of the land otllce to Fort Leav enworth for safekeeping. J ust at dai k the free State party agreed ta brin?' their muskets to Capt. Dunning, and were soon stacking them in front of the hotel. The leadeis of both parties then promised to observe the peace it was halt-past nine o'clock, when there was a general dispersion, and quiet was again restored. The night before not a citizen of Doni phan had slept an hour. General Lane boasted, after the trouble was over, that on the hill above his mill he had counted of his forces. able bodied men at ten o'clock the ni^ht liefore. and that he could have hud that night if necessary I'hk Slave Trade ix Pabliavest.?Lord Brougham, recently in the House of Lords, made some inquiries of the Karl of Clarendon In refer en< e to certain rumors. It was understood, he said, that a liody of West ludia planters had ap proached the noble Viscount at the head of the government, and had urged him to facilitate the importation into our colonies of free negroes from the Coast of Africa. It was also understood that measures of the same sort were contemplated by the colounial interests of France and Spain, and it was even stated that the Emperor Napoleon had given permission to a house at Marseilles to fit out an expedition for inqtorting twenty thou sand free negroes, as they were called, iiito the French colonies. One vessel, it was alleged, had already sailed to Quidah, on the Coast of Africa, well known as a slave trading port?he very port, indeed, from which the King of Dahomey formerly carried on the infernal tralllc. His lord ship hardly had confidence in these rumors, but still bis abhorrence of anything looking towards a revival of the tratlic in slaves, had induced him to broach the subject. The Earl of Clarendon stated that he was not in possession of intelli gence to enable him to reply. He did not know the nature of the W est Indian proposals, but he h id confidence that Lord Palinerston would never sanction such as had been intimated The ?Gov ernment had no information of the alleged Mar seilles ship. !C7* rbJ piquant Fanny Fein visited Phila delphia lately, and Col.

Two Indian idiots, as Is itotr supposed, were exhibited here for a month as descendants of the Aztec race. For a time the attendance was large. The royal family were several times present. All at once there was a change?the police interfered, the exhibition about to oj?eii at Augsburg was broken up, and the whole company sent summa rily out of Bavaria The cause of the change is not with certainty known, though it was without doubt the detection of imposture. The remains of toe Aztec handbills still stick to the walls, as they doubtless will for years to come The names of Mr. Fillmore and others were used to give cur rency to the thing. The Munich Punch still once In a while makes merry over the matter, and the word Aztec, is not pronounced without raisin-/ a smile, which all understand. The movement was ot ^ aukee origin, as was also a circus, which played for several weeks at the Crystal Palace here."

We must, however, protest against their following the hearsay of others .-is to the fitness of the filibuster Walker to represent even ttra ex treme Southern sentiment in this matter. If onr friends will not lie led further astray by the noise of foolish people iu this matter, we will assure them that if they make the acquaintance of Walker they will find him weak, vain.

After being there a shoit time, the proprietor discovered that his mind was wander ins;, and that be se?med almost unconscious of what he was doing at certain interval*. but did not suppose hi* situation such as to require his especial attention On Sunday last, while labor ing under a lit of temporary* derangement, the stranger procured a large phial of laudanum and swallowed it, but fortunately the dose was so Seat, that the stomach became nauseated and rew off the deadly drug. thereby preventing hi* death. In a short time after this occurrence. Dr Coleman was called in to see the sufferer, and finding his mind seriously impaired, gave him medical aid. and informed Mr. Young, the pro prietor of the hotel, of the condition of his pa tient. Mr. Young immediately telegraphed tils friends in Washington, and since then lias kept him so guarded as to prevent him from destroy ing himself if lie desired to do so Yesterday Mr. Y, received a dispatch from Washington,Inform ing him that the young man s brother would be here to attend to him by the first train; so that we presume that he is now on nls way back to hie relatives and friends. We find the following in the Troy Whig : Gov. Marct's Death?^i^gci.ar mfnt ?It is generally known tiiat the daughter of Gov Marcy passed the 4th of July in the fam ily of an acquaints.ice in this city. She formed one of a (irele of friends, including ladie? and gentlemen, at the house during the day. While all the others were in cheerful spirits, it was ob served in the forenoon that Miss M. appear?-d to be distressed in mind. So obvious was this to her companions, that it was made the subject of remark. when she said her mind was unicconnt ably impressed with the fear that a signal calam ity had overtaken some member of her family. Early in the afternoon, the news of the death of Gov. Marcy reached this city, and it w;rs k.iown to gentlemen composing the party in which M is* M was sometime before it was communicated to her. While the gentlemen were in a room by themselves, discussing the manner of convey ing to the daughter the sad intelligence, and be foie she could by any means have received the least Intimation of the event, she suddenly threw her handkerchief over her face, and evidently in deep grief retired alone up stairs.
