. EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY; TUESDAY J?ly 2*, 1MT. SPIRIT OF TIIE MORNING PRESS. The Union is to-day devoted, for the most pert, to tho Kansas question. The editor re joices to find that nine-tenths of those who originally cvinced a disposition to break with the Administration upon it. on better informa tion than they then possessed are now earnestly rupporting its policy in the Territory against the assault* of the regular opposition press. The JuteJli^enctr moralises over ' the spread of lawlessness." and urges the propriety of com bination and concerted action on the part of the conservative, law-abiding and thoughtful to eradicate from the popular mind the bad influ ences which it so earnestly deprecates in tho course of itf article, to which we refer WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP Thk Cask or Ltcirgls and Lkonihas Pitchltnn.?At the November (lSoti) term of the U. S. Circuit Court for the western district of Arkansas young men, sons of Col Pitchlynn. the well known agent and represen tative of his tribe (the Choctaw Indians) in it* business with the ??eneral Government, were convicted of an assault with intent to kill, and were accordingly sentenced to three years' im prisonment in the penitentiary. With the con currence of the District Attorney, the com mencement of tho execution of their sentence was deferred for six months, to allow time for a representation to the President of the facts in the case. It turns out. on thorough investigation, that the testimony against them embraced no alle gation of malice aforethought, and that they were universally esteemed peaceable, orderly and good citizens; and, further, that the main witness fur the prosecution had offered to be bought off by the friends of the accused. Under these circumstances, barked by the recommend ations to that end of Indian Agent Cooper (for the tribe).) the Commissioner of Indian Afl.iir? and the Secretary of the Interior, the Presi dent. with the advice of the Attorney General, has exercised the authority vested in him by law, to order them to be set at liberty. We are extremely gratified at being able to state this fact, being persuaded that the sen tence. under which they would otherwise have suffered was exceedingly hard and undeserved, and that the effect on the tribe of carrying it into execution would have been unfortunate for the future of the Government J iutcreL-t among them The Fort Kearney and Sot thPa&s Wagon Road Paftt ?AVehave private advices from the division of this party of I" S road-makers, (Mr Magruth. Superintendent.) which started cut in advance of the main h>dy. under the command of Mr Lauder, the Engineer of the Expedition On the Sth of July they were some distance beyond Fort Laraiuic making their way towards the South Pass at the rate of 40 miles a day. All of this advance party were then well and in tine spirits. They were sent out in advance of the main party iu order b make certain scientific investigations in the vicinity of the South Pass, necessary to be made before the main expedition can get profitably at work. Tijk Rescued Filibi sters, Ac.?Advices received at the Navy Department this morning, date 1 the l?th instant, say that the U.

The object of her visit to AN ashington is to obtain indemnity from the Government lor property destroyed by the Indians in their foray. She has been de scribed to us as being young, -handsome, and intelligent. Through the instrumentality of Judge Flanureau, late l\ S. Agent for" the Sionx, the was ransomed.

By Inhalation the remedies are brought indirect Contact with the diseased organ, and the stomach (always over taxed in these diseas? si is spared tlio .ntliction of being drugged, without any carthl.v benefit arising froin such useless practice. This mode of treatment is so rational, so simple, so sci entific. and at thr ~amc time, so efhuacjous, that the da* cannot be far distant when it will l>e universally adopted by the Medicai Profession, as the only an chor of safety inrtelassof maladies which have lulli erto set at nought human means. That the old practice docs nothing for Consump tion, is well known. Th:s has been proved by its universal failure ; and, while its a fvocates cannot p.'ir.t to a studio a^o of recovery under its hi tin enee. every town, every village, where the practice ? >f Inhalation has been used, bears testimony to its inestimable value n: restoring the most desperate cases to perfect health.

Mr. Donobo, from public schools committee, to whom had been referied the petition of the mem bers of the Columbian Institution, reported a bill making an appropriation in aid of the Institution for the edm ation of the deaf, the dumb, and the blind, and asked that thecommitteebe discharg ed from further consideration of the same; dis charged Mr. Moore, from the asylum committee, to whom had l?een referred the'report of tbe Intend ant of the Asylum for the month of June, made the following report, vix : "The number of persons in the Infirmary on the 31st of May was forty-five; and the number received during the month of June was twenty making a total of sixty-five During the month of June twelve were divharged, and one died ? leaving fifty-two in the house up to the :{oth of June. Of the twenty persons received in the In firmary, dining the month of J uiie, only two were natives of the District of Columbia. The num ber of disorderly and vagrant persons in the workhouse on the 31st of May, was forty-six, and the number committed during the month of June was eighty-two, (fifty white and thirty-two col ored)?making a total of one hundred arid twenty eight. During the month of J line, sixty weredis cbarged, and seven eloped?leaving sixty-one persons in the workhouse on the 30th of June. Of the one hundred and twenty-eight persons committed to the workhouse during the month, but thirty (ten white and twenty colored) were natives of the District of Columbia." In consequence of the matter which was land ing Ix-fore the Board, no order was taken on the above report. Mr. Moore, from the elections committee, to whom bad b^en referred the protest of John II <i?ddard against the right of Mathew G. Emery to a seat as a memlter of the Board of Aldermen from tbe Fourth Ward, submitted the following report: ? MAJORITY REPORT. The committee on elections, to which was re ferred the case of contested election from the Fourth Ward, respectfully submit the following report: The jH-tition of John II. Goddard, protesting against the right of Matthew G. Emery to a seat in this Board, as an Alderman from the Fourth Ward, represents that the said John II. Goddard was a candidate for the office of Alderman from the Fourth Ward, at the election held on the 1st day of June last, and that at the first precinct of the said ward he received IS*] votes, and Mr. Emery received 2U5 votes; and at the second pre cinct he received 220 (should be 221) votes, and Mr Emery 128 votes. These figures would give the election to Mr. Emery by a majority of ten (nine) votes, and he has been returned as Alderman by the commis sioners of election. But Mr. Goddard protests against Mr. Emery's right to the seat,and claims it for himself, on the ground that the elec tion in the first precinct was not held according to law, and that, therefore, the returns made by the com missioners of said precinct should not be received and counted as a paitof the itoil of the Fourth Ward. And the reasons submitted and urged bv Mr. Goddard in support and justification of th'o exclusion of the return from the said precinct are substantially as follows ; 1st. That many of the friends of the said John II. G< ddard were driven from the polls of the said first precinct, and prevented from voting for him. by an armed mob. 2d. That the Commissioners of Election at the said precinct, all of them lieing political friends of Mr. Emery, did not keep the polls open from seven o'clock in the morning till seven o'clock in the evening, as requited by art of Congress, but, on the contrary, that the said Commissioners closed the polls and igain opened them without any notice whatever, md again closed and opened the said polls at tueir pleasure without notice to the voters. 3d. That the Commissioners having closed the said polls, as was then believed finally for tbe day. a large number of the friends or Mr God dard went to their respective homes, thus being denied the privilege of voting'. 1th That a number of naturalized citizens, who were legal voters and intended to vote for Mr. Goddaid, were denied the privilege of voting be cause their naturalization ? ertificates were issued from courts of recoid in the several States, and not by I'nited States courts. .r?th. That at the intervals when the said polls weie open a number of the friends of Mr. tiod dard approached said polls for the purpose of voting for him. and were driven and beaten away by the political friends of Mr. Emery, and only a particular class of voters wer? permitted to cast their vo es. I u reference to the foregoing allegations of irr? g ularities and violence, your committee has ob tained a mass of evidence, all of which is here with submitted for the inspection and considera tion of the Board. This testimony shows, that on the first day of June last, the day fixed by law for holding the annual municipal election, ourcity was disgraced by the irruption, from Baltimore, of a band of lawless men, armed with pistols, knives, and other dangerous weapons, whose purpose ap |>eaied to l>e to assail with demoniac violence the voters of one of the political parties, and espe cially that class of them lecognized a* naturalized citizens. These intruders came by the railroad, inthe ear liest train of cars, on the morning of the election, arriving here about au hour before the opening of the polls. Their number, your committee feel justified in inferring, could' not have been less than forty?an inference which is based upon the fact that the Mayor has since received authentic information from Baltimore that forty "round-trip tickets," allowing the holders of them to visit Washington and return to Baltimore the same day, were obtained from tbe ticket otflceat Balti more. and paid for by two individuals pers nally unknown to the agents, who were in company with the forty persons whose fare was thus paid for. These men. on arriving here, appear to have separated. A portion of them entered the city from the front of the railroad depot, proceedin,r westwardlv by way of Indiana avenue, whilsiau^ other portion emerged from the cars in the rear of the depot and proceeded in a more northwe.-te'iv di.ection, which would lead more directly tr the northern precinct of the Fourth Ward. The'atter gang appear soon to have been lost sight of by the |>oliceomcerK, (who had other duties to perform.) and their movements at that time cau l?e traced only a short distance from the cars. But theother gang, numbering between twenty and thirty, which proceeded along Indiana avenue, have been traced to two of our public houses in search vf breakfast and other refreshments. They first went, it seems, to the restaurant of Mr. Allen, at the corner of Seventh and Kstreets, and. not find ing accommodations at that plu-e, they then pro ceeded to the Franklin House, kept by Mr Cyrus Martin, wheiethey met with better success, and their breakfast was paid for by a person who was unknown to the keeper of the house. Your committee have been enabled to obtain but little information as to Um persona immedi- j atelv responsible for tbe presence In our city of these desperado** Tbe evidence discloses tbe name* of only two of our eltlzens who came oft the cars with them One of these was Mr Wil liam l\ Martin, one of the American candidates for the Board of ComaHNl Council in the Fourth Ward, who. it AppMTs. interested himaelf in pro curing entertainment for them after their arrival here. The other wa* Mr John Fran*, also a member of the American party, who I* stated to have accompanied Mr Martin some distance from tbe railroad depot, but it is not shown that he Kve the strangers any substantial comfort after ey reached the citv He was unable to appear l>efore your committee, but has solemnly affirmed that his arrival with the party was merely acci dental; and that he had 110 knowledge what* ver of their employers at Baltimore, or of their busi ness here. From Mr. Martin the committee ob tained no evident e. The chairman called once at his office to learn whether be would answer a summons, but not finding him there, he did not call again. That the visit of these men was preconcerted, and that it was not designed to be of an orderly and peaceful character, is clearly evidenced by the earliness of the hour at which they left Balti more. (four o'clock in the morning.) and from the offensive nature of their equipments boon after breakfasting they seem to have con gregated at and about the polls of the first, or northern precinct of the Fourth Ward, where, being reinforced by a portion of the most disso lute of our own population, the combination Jiroved to be much too formidable to be restrained rom acts of violence bv our limited police force, which?if all its members, including the night watch?could have been embodied at a single precinct, instead of being distributed, as they were, amongst the fourteen precincts eml>raced within the extensive area of our city, would not have amounted to one half, and probably uot to one-third of the number of the rioters who were thus arrayed against the public peace, and whom it was rendered the more difficult either to de serve or to arrest, because of their intermingling with the crowds of spectators assembled in the vicinity of the polls, and whose presence had the effect of enabling the rioters with the greater im punity to accomplish in the early part of the day their nefarious purpose of deterrfng a large l>ody of our citizens from their rightful exercise of the elective franchise. The northern precinct of the Fourth Ward, whose polls became the site of this violence, con tains a larger number of naturalized citizens than any other precinct ofthe city; and, unfortunately, the difficulty of preserving order at these polls, even under ordinary circumstances, had been greatly increased by the act of the commissioners of election, all of them supporters of the candi dates of the ** American party,"'in placing the polls at an inappropriate locality. Rejecting other and more eligible positions, the commissioners established these polls on the east side of Seventh street, at the northwest corner of the precinct, almost within a stone's throw of the polls of the northern precinct of the Third Ward, which wvre located on the same side of Seventh street, with the Northern Liberties market-house run ning in a transverse position, its eastern end lie ing nearly equidistant between the two |?olls Remonstrances with the commissioners against placing the polls of the Fourth Ward precinct in this objectionable position proved of no avail In vain was urged the inconvenience of the lo cality to the voters generally, some of whom re sided more than a mile distant; in vain was urged the interruption which must ensue to business on that portion of one of our narrowest streets, which, at all times a principal thoroughfare, was on that morning the busiest part of the city, on account of its being a regular market day. and in vain was it urged that the placing together of these two polls, at both of which lerge numbers of natuiahzed citizens were entitled to vote, would inevitably increasethe hazard tothepuh- I lie peace be enabling a single gang of disorderly persons to disturb the quiet of l>otb precincts The commissioners were immovable In adhering to the place of their choice. It ap|>ears that the rioters took possesion of these polls at about half past nine o clock in tbe morning. I'p to near that time the voting had l>een proceeding regularly, though there was oc casional excitement, caused by efforts of the riot ers to get up a row, which seems to have l?een felt to a greater degree amongst the spectators than at the window where the ballots were de posited But at the ht?ur just mentioned, a vio lent and unprovoked attack was made upon the line of voters, with pistols, stones, and other wea[?ons. by which the entire body of voters were dispersed, many having to escape their as sailants through the tenement occupied by the commissioners of election, who, leaving their room open, al"o tied from the scene of this mur derous assault, which was continued by the hurl ing of stones and the discharge of pistols toward the window where the votes were received, until two well-known and active members of the Ame rican party (one of them being its candidate ff*r the office of assessor and the other one of its chal lengers at those polls) called upo ; the aggressors to desist from their ferocious work, in language implying that their political opponents had been vanquished and their shots were imperilling the lives of their own friends. The firing then ceas ed; but the wrath of the rioters not having yet been appeased, they proceeded to demolish the fence or barricade which, to protect voter* from the outside pressure when in tbeact of depositing their ballots, had l*eeu erected immediately in i front of the polls. 1 The rioters were thus in complete possession of the place. It does uot appear that their assault I was met by any resistance, except such as was interposed by tne police officers, who. proving unable to protect themselves, shared the fate of the voters in being driven from the ground During the onslaught, four or five persons were shot?fortunately none of them mortally ? and some others were cruelly beaten or otherwise in- I jured. The voting was of course suspended, and the! election for the time lieing completely broken up The length of time the commissioners of election absented themselves from the |>olU. appears to I have been alxtut half an hour. I'pon this and other points there is some discrepancy in their I own testimony. But, when the polls were re- I opened, they still remained under tiie surveillance and control of the mob, whose continued threats against naturalized citizens, in connection with their antecedent outrages, deterred from the exer cise of their elective privilege not only citizens | of the denounced class, but also intimidated many i native citizens who were opposed to the caudi- I dates of the so-called American party. This clearly appears from the list of voters returned by J ttie commissioners of election, as your committee will presently demonstrate. I But. after these polls had l>een opened a second I time, they were destined again to lie closed in the I brief space of two or three hours; for, by one I o'clock, what previously might have been re- I garded as merely a riot, tuougu one of a most des- I perate character, had assumed the more serious I aspect of an actual insurrection, from the course which was deliberately taken by the mob to resist I the public authorities in their efi'ort.s to restore and I maintain the |>eace of the city. I'pon hearing of the outbreak in the morning. J the Mayor had, with commendable alacrity, in voked the aid of the President of the I'tuted States, as the civil governor of the District of Co lumbia, to protect froin further threatened vio- J lence the lives and property of our citizens. The I emergency was pressing The freedom of the elec- 1 tive franchise had l?ecii audaciously invaded; one I portion of the voters had been driven by violence I rom the polls, the |?oli< e force was found to be ut terly insufficient to preservethe peace; some of its members had been wounded in the discharge of theirduty, and e,ven the commissioners of election themselves had deemed it necessary to abandon the polls, lu this emergency ihe marines at the Navy Yard composed the only effective force that could with promptitude he brought into service, I and they were at once ordered to the assistance of the civil authority, and directed to repoit to the Mayor, at tbe City llall. distant about naif a inile I from the scene of these disturbances. These troops, however, had not taken up the line of march l>efore the abettors of the mob, hav ing heard of the proposed movement, devised measures to obtain from the engine-house near the Navy Yard a large, mounted swivel, or can non, which, with tbieatsof destruction to all who should oppose them, and especially against for eign-born citizens and the marines, they dragged a distance of two miles through the public streets, and planted in a position to command the polls of the Fourth Ward precinct, already in j?osses sion of their friends This daring act of a triumphant mob, whose cries and violence of manner inspired terror as it pas>ed alou^ the streets, and whose confidence in its own power had increased with each new suc ccss, and which must have become more and more daugerous In the absence of effective opposition to its menaced atrocities, imposed upon tbe Mayor the necessity of moving the trooj?s from the City Hall to check the insolence which, during the previous three or four hours, had set at defiance every semblance of law and authority. If at such a crisis the Mayor had shruuk fioin this duty, when the fort e at his disposal had been so aug mented as to be adequate to sustain the power with which he was invested as the chief executive magistrate of the city- he would have incurred the universal censure of the community, instead of receiving the general approl>ation which he ho well merited by the discreet and fearless manner in which he met the |Munful lesponsibillties of his i {losition To him. therefore, as well as to the j ?resident of the I nited States, the Secreiary of the Navy, and to the gallant officers, and the troops under their command, are justly due the thanks of tbe order-loving portion of our people, for the timely precaution and unfiiuching thinness by which the bad and reckless men. who had so im pudently arrayed themselves against tbe peace of our city, were finally overawed and put to flight. The collision, which resulted in the complete discomfiture of the mob, occurred soon after the Mayor ind troops had reached the beleagured polls Upon arriving at that place the oolis we e found to be closed; in vain did the Mayor de mand that they should lie opened. The mob re ceived hiin Willi contumely and reproaches His Well-meant efforts at expostulation were met with scorn and derision. The troops were iusu 1 ted with taunts and jeers, and threatened, unless they should be immediately withdrawn, with a dis charge fiom tbe cannon, loaded almost to Ibe muzzle with death-dealing ini??iles; the can non was thereupon captured by the troops with out U? firing of ? gun.

According to his testimony tbe pretext for the ad seem?B|o have ?>ecn the application toour municipal election at the instance of the English-liorn citizen who was acting as one of the commissioners, of a law en acted by the Parliament of Great Britain for tbe regulation of elections in that Kingdom, and which was wholly inappropriate to an election in this country, for the reason that in Kn.-land an election is continued for more than one day. and if at any time it be interrupted by a iiiob'it i an be adjourned to the next day, so long as it shall be so interrupted, until the entire length of time presented by law for the holding of an election ?.hall have been consumed in th?- actual busi ness of an election free from riots or other violent interruption ; whereas in this cilv, where the law requires the election lo be ??egun and completed on the same day ifthe public authorities may not interfere bv force, military or otnerwise to secure the voters free access to the polls, a' small portion of any j>arty might arm themselves put in their own votes. Uke and keep possession of the polls until the hour arrived for closing them, and thus make a mockeiy of the inestima ble franchise on the freedom and purity of which depend the safety and theliiiertiesof ourcountry Besides, the emergency which the public author ities of this city were required to m?<eton theday of the last election, is, so far as your committer are informed, without a parallel in this or any other country. There is not of record, w ithin the knowledge of your committee, any examples of armed invasions bv inhabitants of a distant and foreign municipality with a view to control the elections of another municipality, iu which, as electors, the intruders had no interest wbatevei Such was the Invasion of this city on the IM < f June last. It was literally an invasion of a hos tile nature, and the authorities were iu*(iti*d in defeating and expelling tbe intruders' by the em ployment of any amount or description of for. e which they deemed necessary to ensure their de feat and expulsion. The commissioners erred, therefore, in closing the polls and iu applyiug this KngIishenactment t j an American election. The commissioners fniher erred in making a defective return; for, although they had twice closed the polls during the dav, they state. U?th in the return which thev made'to the Mayor and in that which thev made to the Register, that in obedience to law, ?? ire 4<d. on Monday, tiie |U?t of June. rp?itv*? ovry'm at the hoti*e of G \V Appleby, iu said wa:d. and tlun and there, hav iii? severally taken" tbe oath pres. nUd by law. n''* ?* flecttomfrom th< Acvr t>f stern o'c/#.t morning *err* o'rlork tn the et-enmr, ' ic These returns are contrary to the fads, and are impeached by the evidence of all the commis sioners whose signatures tli"V liear.

Tl?e commissioners ar? also chargeable wi?h irregularity iu not having duly certifr.d and NtJb scriV.l their names to the list of nam*s of t?ei sons whom they have returned as having voted on tbe day aforesaid. The returns are consequently unperfee-t iu all of the important particulars mcntione-d, involving violations of law upe>n which arises grave que-,*' tioks as to the legality of the elec tiou at this p-c ci act. r But thev are not the only irregularities requir ing serious consideration It plainly appears, by comparing the returns of the comniis?iouers w.;h the evidence obtaiiie-d by your e ouimittee, that the riot, togetli.-r with the ? losing of the polls, had the effect of breaking up the el-ctiou. From the time of the riot in the morning no op[>ortuujt y I was aftorded tor a fair expression of opinion by the voters of the precinct. When, between th* | hours of ten and eleve-ii o\ lo> k, the poles we,, re-opened, they were in the undisputed posse s. sion of the mob, whose lawless conduct not onl^ prrve-uted naturalized citizens front voting. biK alst? intimidated many native riti?n? who fa vored the election of Mr. Goddard Asrvielence of this it is sufficient to state thai amongst the Oist forty votes tee orded on the poll li*t after the re-opening of the polls, only four e>f them were given by the political friends of Mr tioddard. and that aniougst the first eighty vote* so ree-ord ed only ten of them were given by his politi. ai friends. A portion of his friends, however, com prising native citizens, we re In-ginning to rally between one and two o'ele^ k, (a time at whic h many laboring and business men. in g*>!ng lo or returning from dinner, are in the of casting their votes.) when, hearing e.f tl.e approae h o7 the Mayor and soldiers, the commissioners of election again assumed the responsibility Pf closing the |>olls. They had for three hours previously been re ceiving votes in the presence of armed men. who within half an hour had !>ceu reinforced by a can non, placed in a position to ake the poll* With this condition of things the iti tb aid *he coimnis sionersseem to have lieen content. There was no clamor far the withdrawal of the cannon, or of the excited men who had it in charge, nor any apprehension exhibited for the freedom of elec tion But when the chief civil mai'istraae of th? ci.y approached with a body of disciplined sol diers, under the command of accomplished and responsible officers, the commissioners as well as the mob Wauie terribly alarmed for the f:e? o e leii .nui, and unwilling to couiitena.iee at:y condition of things which might have the ?em blame of overawing the (wople, (that i? th" aforesaid mob.) they indignantly closed the It uever occurred to them that protection might necensary to eoable the piotcnbed voters 10 e*?rcl?e tbelr rights; or, if ?ucli an id* did occur
