The Intrllisenctr, in making some ((notations from Senator Hunter's address before thecadet* of tbe Virginia Military Institute, pays a grace ful compliment to that gentleman, and says of the address : '?Like all that proceeds from Mr. Hunter.lt Will V* found marked by trait" of sound and so ber thought, embodied in sedate yet felicitous language, thus composing that rare union of ne ver? logic and chastened rhetoric which are alike exempt from prurience of style on the one hand and arid dullness on the other." Tlie Union has an article demonstrating that there aro really but two parties in the country, <he democratic and their adversaries; and these two parties are always found arrayed npon the opposite sides of every political ques tion coming up for action DrrAKTi-BE or thk Westirt Visitor*.?The excursionists from the West having returned to Baltimore from their agreeable trip to Portsmouth and Norfolk, proceeded to their hotels, and after gathering their baggage and bidding good bye to their friend* of the city, manv of them started for the North, whilst other* took the Wheeling train of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, intending to proceed directly home. They left in the 8)$ train yesterday about *25, and in the train which ?left in the afternoon about 3U, besides Menter's Band of Cincinnati. At Norfolk and Portsmouth, the visitors were made much of during their short *tay. The fine military companies of Norfolk and Portsmouth turned out to receive them, and after a parade and * visit to the many objects of interest, there was ?oiue cracking of champagne bottles, etc., etc.. al ?he Macon House in Portsmouth, and at Johnson s Hfil in Norfolk. In Portsmouth, the building* of the Seaboard and Roanoke Railroad Company Were tastefully decorated with banners. From one of the win dows was suspended a flag bearing the inscrip tion ?' Welcome, Western Guests!>? A string of various national ensigns was also suspended from the northwest to southeast corner of High street, under which the procession passed. In Norfolk, too, flags were suspended from various buildings. The Editorial Stbbet Affray at Locts villr The fracas at Louisville some days since between Prenticeof the Journal, and Durrett ol th?: Courier, grew out of the former charging Mr. Kiliott, a candidate for Congress, with drunk enness. whereupon the Courier made a similar charge against Prentice. By the correspondence published in the Louisville papers it would seem 'hat Prentice demanded a retractiou of the article and an avowal of its authorship, which was not ?onceded. where *pon Prentice invited Durrett to a street tight by letter, which letter the latter did not receive previous to the attack coiumr nc.J ? friends was in wait for Durrett. A number oj pistol shots passed between the parties without particular execution on either side, Mr. Prentice being slightly wounded in the leg. After the af. iray Durrett sent a challenge to Prentice, which he declined, as he is opposed to dueling. Fearinu that Durrett might do some violence to Prentice" the friends of the latter took some legal steps to prevent it, and the parties were both held to bail to keep the peace for twelve months.

WASHINGTON NEWS APtD GOSSIP. The Apprentice Strtbw ?-We beg tha Star's readers not to beoome weary of this sub ject. as, in common with all others wbose inter ests are bound up with the general prosperity of the country, they are directly interested to ward off the consequence? of it? mtcceu up< n the general interests of all. We oaf* not whero the reader may be located, or what may be his employment or condition in life, if his interest is to be affected disastrously by the general de cay of our national prosperity that must grow out of successful rivalry to our Southern States in the production (by other nations) of cotton, rice and tobacco, he is immediately and deeply interested in the defeat of the triunpfe ef this scheme. Yesterday, we urged that England seeks to induce the planters of Cuba to beooroe advo cates for the change. We had no space at com mand, then, in which further to illustrate that faet, evident not only in the arguments used in the London Times, but in the columns of the journals published on the Island of Cuba, over all of which British influence is well nigh as paramount as the stringent law of the mother country regulating what shall and what shall not be published in them. We have private advices of a very late date from Havana, saying that the authorities of the inland, as well as the home government, arc prepared to accede to England's purposes in this matter, and are now Bccretly striving to prepare the planters to give np cheerfully the system of slavery as at present regulated there by law. and adopt the new one. To our mind this combination between England and Spain, backed as it is by Francc, baa also the purpose in view of rendering the island of Cuba unde sirable to the United States ; and thus lessen ing the chanccs that Spain will, in the end, be , compelled by the force of circumstances to dis pose of it to us. Such a consideration alono could induce Spain, proverbially slow to change, ' to consent to barter her Cuban bird in the hand, for one in the bush. We submit that the com bination, no less than its purpose, clearly em brace a contingency laid down in the "Ostend Manifesto,as affording sufficient ground for prompt and positive repulsion on the part of this Government of their policy. Or. in other words, for decided measures on the part of the United States to repel ovtskle Europeau inter ference in the domestic affairs of Cuba, which, under the received theory concerning its future held by ninety m every hundred Americans, cannot be permitted to changc its political status ? i* any way, unless to become our<. We need i> net rehearse the doctrines laid down in that r Unpoftaat paper?the Ostend Manifesto?for all are aware that it affirmed the duty and right of the United States to protect themselves from the consequences of any political changc of the status of the island of Cuba adverse to our in , tereats. None in the United States failed to ! endorse the soundness of this position; which was not one of those of the memorable mani festo that met witb opposition in this country. If it was sound doctrine tbeu, of which wc en r tertain no doubt whatever, it is ns sound now that the moment rapidly approaches when it will become the duty of the United States, them selves. to vindicate its supremacy at ail hazards ! and any cost. 1 The Star's readers know that we have for years steadily defended the rights of Spain in connection with Cuba with earnestness and zeal, and will credit us therefore for being neither a 5!tekPbrre^te^Lnor an ?nem^ ofSPain'3 f well that there must be substantial groundfiPfor t our act in thus raising a warning cry against i the purposes of the three governments that are in this disgraceful and (to our future) dangerous | conspiracy. We have taken pains to explain the other reasons, in previous articles upon this ; subject, and now ask whether it can be possible [ that the American people will fail to demand of their government that it shall promptly prevent Cuba from being transferred practically to Eng. land's jurisdiction, by and through the proposed modification of its institution, which modifica tion cannot fail to have as the basis of its suc cess some stipulation according to England the right and duty of regulating the police?the do mestic affairs of the island, far more effectually than she docs at present, though all thoroughly i posted concerning the island's affairs must be aware that she has for the last quarter of a [ century been gradually coming to regulate the i relative rights, duties and status of master and | slavo throughout Cuba. Ever since she abol 1 ished slavery in her own West India Islands [ such has been her steady aim, and gradually she has been acquiring more practical power so to do. Her consols and commissioners on the island arc now almost all-powerful in deter mining the judgment of its courts and the action of iu authorities on all slavery questions; and if the projosed apprentice system be carried ( out, th? authority of her functionaries there upon t>uch points or subjects will bo as strong as ever written law could make it. Inder such circumstances, we regard the cur rent efforts to change the slavery system of the Island?to compass the abolishment of the pres ent system and the r'ubstitution of another em bracing most reprehensible features, as a virtual transfer of jurisdiction over the island to Eng . land, in order that she may, at her leisure, re alize her schemes to cripple the prosperity of the United States, which purpose has been at the bottom of all she has done in the matter of slavery since abolishing slavery in her own West India possessions Thk Threatened War between Spain and Mexico?We are no believer that this oxpea ed rupture can possibly ocCur, notwithstanding the probable pledges of England and France that they will regard and treat ail efforts of the latter to land forces on the Island of Cuba, com posed in part of American volunteers in her service, as filibustering?piratical?expedition?. Spain knows that, under the provisions of in ternational law, such expeditions so composed would be perfectly legitimate; and, further, that in a month after her declaration of war against Mexico may be known in this country, fifty thousand Americans will volunteer to take up arms in Mexioo's defence, if but for the Uqal opportunity for an invasion of Cuba it will afford them. She knows, too, that, per ceiving the drift of her (Spain's) intrigues with England and Francc relative to the proposed Apprentice System, the United States will in sist that those two European Governments shall remain perfectly neutral in the contest?the penalty being our formal participation in it on Mexico's side; it being the interest of thi8 Government to secure to Mexioo all her rights in such a contest, under the laws of war as now recognised by all civilized nations, among which is the right to accept the serv ces of any individuals she pleases, and with them in her armies to invade any of the dominions of her adversary she may choose to invade. Spain, though in her late temper she has as sembled at Havana a considerable naval arma ment and quite an army to that end, will, on reflection, decline to risk, at this time, the dan gerous experiment of a war with Mexico. Cait.ht i.x their own Trap ?The public are doubtless aware that Simeon Draper, Esq., t e only man of entire capacity and high char acter among the Republican members of the . tw \ork Metropolitan police commission, rc signe< a few days *ii?ce, because his colleagues insiste on appointing notorious thieves and bruisers to be polioemen? it is said. Hia resig. BMwn deprive tie Republic 0f their ma jority to the Board. which can alone All the v?. cancj. Beaides the three remaining Republi cans. tha Beard consists of Mayor Wood, of Powell, of Brooklyn, and Mr rholwoD, an American party man. former ly a Hard Shall Democrat, all of whom, up to the resignation of Draper, had declined attend ing its session.* When that event took place, however, Mayor Wood immediately arranged With thoee two gentlemen, that the three ?he?ld hereafter attfend the meetings of the Board; where, being able "to tie" their colleague?! they will sorely destroy it, by retnsing to fill the vacancy and to continue the operation of its machinery, set np, as they eontend, for a Republican party end, and over the rights and against the interests of the city of New York. From present appearances, the resignation of Mr. Draper has afforded Mayor Wood an op portunity to gain a victory over the Republican party scheme for the invasion of the right of of New 1 ork to regulate her own municipal concerns, which he will, doubtless, use to its entire defeat. The Minot Lepge Light-Hopse.?In the Bon ton Jinirtial of July 21, we find a communi cation from Capt. B. S. Alexander of the Engi neer corps, contradictory of the statement which appeared originally in that paper in regard to the estimated cost of the new Minot Ledge Light-house, and which statement was copied widely throughout the press of the country. Capt. Alexander says " the probable cost will not be " $1,000,(MM)." Half that sum will com plete it; probably much less than half." Also, that ? the great difficulty,"?that of preparing the foundation for the superstructure?is now four-fifths completed, and is being overcome as rapidly as possible. Naval Courts or Inquiry.?In Court No. 1. Commander Thorburn's defenco was read. The case of ex-Lieut. Dulany was then taken up, and Commander McBlair was examined The Court then closed its doors to decide upon Commander Thorburn's case. Court No. 2 was not in session, having ad journed over to Monday. In Court No. 3, Dr. Charles Hunter and Pur ser Cutter were examined, and depositions taken from Commodore Gregory, F. Watts, and D. N. Mahon, all in behalf of Com Long. Promotion and Appointments?E. II. Cum mins has been promoted to a second classclerk ship in the Third Auditor's office, vice B. F. Niles, removed. J. W. Nixon, of Louisiana, has l?cen ap pointed to a first elass clerkship in the Third Auditor s office, vice Cummins promoted. Robert A. Matthews, ol Georgia, has been appointed to a first class clerkship in the Secre tary s office, vice W. R. Blount resigned. Gone to the Springs?Nearly everybody belonging in Washington who can get away, have gone off to the country, or to some sea shore or mountain region watering place. So all is dullness?twice dull here just now. By the by, a friend at the Mountain House (Capon Springs) writes us in high praise of that estab lishment, which, according to hisjudgment?and he is emphatically a connoisseur in such mat ters?is one of the best kept establishments in the United States.

Mr. Pickrell offered a resolution declaring the veto of the Mayor out of time, and therefore of no eff-ct, the charter of the town requiring that all such papers shall be communicated to the Cor poration within twenty-four hours after the bill intended to be vetoed shall have been placed in his possession.
