EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: TI'ESDAY A??ust \**7. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The Union contends that David Wilrnot, the Republican party candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania, has crawled through slime to his present notoriety, and seeks to get office through the same avenue. We also find in the Union to-day able and interesting letters from Messrs. Cass. Toucey, Brown, (A. V.,) and Thompson, (Jacob) in response to invitations to attend the ?? Dudley Mann Convention," at Old Point Comfort. In the course of his letter, the Post master General says: 44 So Important is It to furnish ev?ry facility 01 Interchange of productions that most governments have given every incidental aid to commercial enterpi ises like yours which they were able to give. It was for this purpose that our govern ment instituted the Collins, the Bremen, and Havre lines, paying a considerable bonn* or extra compensation for carrying tbe mails of the I nited State*. On the expiration of the two latter con tracts a new policy has. however, lieen inaugu rated. of paying them only th> postages (sea and inland) for conveying our mails to France and 4ieriu?ny. Whatever patronage shall be given by Congress, in its future legislation, to any of the ocean steam lines, should, of course, be ex tended to tbe contemplated one between Norfolk and Milford Haven, and indeed to all other simi lar projects, whether North or South. If your line should be started in advance of such legis lation, the greatest amount of patronage allowed by existing law shall be freely bestowed upon It." In the course of his letter, the {secretary of the Interior takes occasion to say? "England and Francs, under the guidance of a mistaken philanthropy, abolished the system of slave laU>r iu their West Indian possessions, by which acts, as is no apparent to the world, they have inflicted ami entailed numlierless evils upon the slave, and sunk all their most fertile and beautiful islands of the Antilles beneath the wave of barrenness and barbarism, and to-day they are considering with favor, and proposing with earn estness, plans for the renewal of the African la bor system, in order to recover the pearl they have thrown away in a moment of misdirected and infatuated benevolence; and in order to avoid the penalty of piracy, and yet secure the benefits of African labor?for which no substitute of equal efficiency for the production of the staples most needed by the civilized world can be found?it Ik proposed to introduce the African upon their cot ton plantations and sugar and cotf^e estates, un der the nutderaiid less unpopular name of appren tice. He is to be indentured or sold for a term of years, to be worked until he becomes incapable of lat?or, and therefore worthless?with no claim upon his master beyond the time for which he is bound, and subject to lie driven off when over work and cruel usage shall have enfeebled his constitution and rendered him unfit for labor, and unable to obtain a livelihood?a system more bar barous and inhuman than any ever before devised by tbe cupidity of man. Since, then, bur rights are secure, and since our products can only be raised in sufficient Quanti ties in our climate, and by oar system of labor may we not hope to have our own line of steam ers established, and thus secure the advantage of direct trade with the European nations ?*' The Inteiliftnetr republishes from the Prov. iden\*e Journal. an able article against the prac tice of frequently changing the diplomatic rep resentatives of this Government, and takes occasion to endorse its positiuu?, holding that ?? they are incompatible with their functions, which can be derived only from long experience in the pursuit of any profession and alio that they imply that our diplomatists are " unable to resist tbe seductions of monarchical power or to escape the influence of despotic habitudes '* Elsewhere the Imtllietuctr says : 44 Since Congress has given its full sanction to the construction of the Potomac Aqueduct, by granting successive appropriation for it, the Sec retary or War. we understand, is zealously en gaged in carrying out t'ne intentions of Congress bv vigorously prosecuting the great work. With this view he'has, very judiciously we think. aj? provedtbe plan of the able superintending officer, of letting out to separate and reliable contractors the ditfcrent descriptions of work required on the aqueduct." We also find in the same journal a brief note from the filibuster Walker, contradicting some of tho statements in the letter from General Wool, not long since published in that journal. We extract the material points of W.'s rejoin der. as follows: - "Ibe/ leave to say to vou that one afternoon, as Gen Wool was leaving San Francisco for Benicla?when lie was on the wharf, and about going aboard the steamer?I distinctly stated to him the nature of my grant from Castilion, and he as distinctly wished me all success in my en terprise ??

A correspondent, whose interests are involved in the solution of the question, writes us as fol lows concerning a Pension-law imbroglio which is just now agitating, not ft little, tho*e in W ashington who practice as attorneys before the Pension Bureau: a " Ever since lttM, it has been the Pension Office to pay arrears of pensions to children wniforinly. a n 5* lh* greater portion of the time to ^rend-ch ldren (11 ) l^st year, for the flrst time, the Secretary of the Interior doubted the legality of this practice, and referred the question to the Attorney General,who, after five months" delay. dcc1d?i that payments to children should continue, (2 ) At its lant ses sion the Supreme Court declared grand-children as well as children to be within the equity of these acts, (3,) and upon this, payments to l?oth children and grand-children are suspended by the S*ecretary. who has a<rain consulted the At torney General, and now for some three month* the question has been held up, to the great detri ment of all who have claims or this character,'"(4.) Concerning this matter, we have to express regret that in the exercise of the caution neces- i sary in the discharge of the functions of his office, the Secretary of the Interior should cause any one to linger on hope deferred. Yet we know well that questions such as those Involved in the case stated above require time for their correct solution. The Attorney General, of course, in almost all instances disposes of cases in their turn. They come to him from every division of the Executive branch of the public service, not a few of them requiring weeks of careful investigation ere they can be properly disposed of. To take this case up out of its order would be to d'. lay the disposition of many other cases, the parties to which are equally meritorious and necessitous as these. Our cor respondent will, therefore, seo that if blame should fall anywhere for the delay of which he complains, it should be on Congress ; for fail ing to establish the law department of the Gov ernment?to increase the facilities of the Attor ney General's office for disposing of the so rapidly increasing business that is being show ered upon it on all sides. The late Attorney General, if we remember correctly, in an able report set forth the pressing necessity for the change of tlie organization of the office (Attor ney General s) to which we refer. More com petent legal assistants, who should be well paid. (as the present assistant of the Attorney General is not.) are required to hunt up author ities, investigate the law. arrange the cases for the final decision of the Chief of the Depart ment. Ac. Until Congress shall act favorably upon the recommendation mentioned above, much of the business of the office must be de layed or hurriedly disposed of. notwithstanding the intensity of the labors of its chief aud his assistants, who work now as few other meu could without breaking down from sheer exhaustion. But there are points in our correspondent s communication which require some explanation at our hand. 1st. lie is probably mistaken in the belief thnt there is settled precedent for the payment of arrearages to grand-childrcn. Such is not the underiHanding of the Pension Bureau. 2d. The question referred by Secretary McClclland, was as to the legality of the pay ment of arrearages to children?not grand-chil dren. Attorney General Cushing, after as thor ough investigation as was ever bestowed upon a law point referred to an Attorney General^ very distinctly and emphatically reported that there was no law for the practice, lie. how ever, virtually sanelkmod its continuance, as the precedent had been followed for a length of time sufficient to give it the force of law. 3d. Our correspondent's understanding of the effect of the decision of the Supreme Court to which he refers, differs from ours. It was in a ease where money had bt*n obtained from the Government; not one in which the question was?shall the Government pay money. Hav ing been obtained, and being beyond the reach of Government reclamation by law, the ques tion to be decided by tho Supreme Court was? should it be divided between the children and grand-children, or only the former? Such only were the parties to the suit?not the Govern ment; whose rights or interests were not in volved in it directly or indirectly, if we are not mistaken. 4th. We are very sure that Secretary Thomp son. in calling on the Attorney General for his opinion upon the rights of children and grand children to arrearages of revolutionary pensions^ is simply discharging his duty conscientiously. The decision of the questions involved will af fect the interests ot a large number of persons, as well as materially affect the Treasury. The public will, therefore, award him credit lor acting with his proverbial caution in the mat ter, rather than blame him for not at once act ing against- his convictions of duty, to avoid delay. But it is sinccrely to be hoped that at its next session Congress will so legislate as that the payment of arrearages to children may no loi-gor rest wholly on precedent. The question of right is too important to be left longer in that condition. To extend the operation of tho law to grand-children, will be to authorize drafts on the Treasury such as the country little dreams of, or the Pension bureau is vastly mis taken in the probable operation of such a law or such construction of existing law. A Kev to Them.?The newspaper reports that it has been determined to displace the present Engineer-in-Chief of the Navy, strike us as being, to say the least of them, prema ture. Strenuous efforts to bring about his dis placement are certainly being made. Some of them come from quarters that render us suspi cious ol their propriety. Since the commence ment of the use of steam in the naval service of the United States, the Department has been beset by different parties of holders of patent rights bearing on ocean steam navigation, to bring about the use of their improvements in the sen ice. at round rates. Some of their pro |>osed changes are doubtless valuable, while most of them would involve the Government in jKjsitive loss. In our time we have known many such effort? essayed here, usually without suc cess TLe opinion of the Engineer-in-Chief, of course, has much weight in determining the fate of such efforts; and where he proves firm in re fusing to counsel such proposed changes, he gives eternal offence to those urging them. There is a little controversy about coal, in ii*f just now, which strikes us as superinducing some of thecurrent efforts on which we are com menting. It has been found, we hear, that Cumberland coal when sent abroad and left ex posed to the weather, a* is often necessary in coaling American government steamers on for eign stations, disintegrates, or rather crumbles; and if laying on a beach becomes so mixed with ( sand as toinjure the grates on which it ia burned. However, when so ex]>osed it is not deemed as valuable for naval purposes as anthracite coal, which preserves its consistency much better under all the changes of climate, weather orcir outnstances it may undergo. These facts of course superinduce an unfavorable opinion on the part of tho Engineer-in-Chief as to the uso Cumberland coal in the navy, abroad. Wo shall not be surprised if the expression of that unfa vorable opinion has not, in turn, superinduced efforts on the part of some of the Cumberland coal men to bring al>out the displacement of Engineer-in-Chief Mrrtin. However, if he shall be ordered to other duty. It will surely be lor reasons other th*n those to which we refer above. Parties, such as those mentioned above make all the noise in the newspapers ainst publio officers, though rarely succeeding in carrying oat their schemes, la this case we will guar antee that whoever may hold the position under I the present Administration, will be as unman ageable bj them as the present incumbent. It may be bettet for the public interest that the ! incumbents tp such offices should be changed j now and then, as there are many gentlemen in the Government's arrice thoroughly qualified to All them. We have no idea, however, that any future appointees to such places will "go in" for the gratification of the patent-rights men generally, or for the use abroad of any other eoal in the Qovernment service, than that which experience may have made plain to be the best for the required purpose. Thk Right to Enter Public Lands.?The Acting Commissioner of the General Land Of fico has recently had occasion (in replying to inquiries from newly-appointed Land Offioers) to explain their duties and the rights of parties applying to enter land, as follows. Viz : " It is the duty of the Register and Receiver to receive application* for the purchase or location of any lands in the district subject to entry at pri vate sale in the exact order of the filing of appli cations and tender of the consideration without restriction as to ranges, taking care not to allow a monopoly of purchase in favor of any one person, I and not permitting each to ntircUase at any one time more than the extent of an ordinary entry. I Where greater quantities are desired by any one applicant, the party must take his turn according to the principle here laid down, until from time to time he may l>e accommodated with proper regard to the equal privileges and rights which others may have to make purchases. Under the above regulations, the practice of offering lauds in the manner proposed (by ranges) cannot ue sanctioned. ! Where the number of entries consummated du- I ring any particular period are so great as to ren- I der it necessary to close the office a portion of the day, you will be governed by the regulation in the Circular of the '24th January, 1W50. as follows: J 41 It is, therefore, hereby directed, that in fu- I ture when the press of business at any one land office shall mate such proceeding necessary, the hours for business will be limited from 8 a. m., I to 12 in., at which last hour the offices twill be cloNed for the day, and the afternoon devoted to bringing up the morning work; and whenever it shall be necessary to restrict the hours as above, the fact will be immediately reported to this Of fice, and the probable time such limited working hours continued, also communicated. So soon as the press of business is overcome, the hours will be extended throughout the day; and in no case whatever will the unauthorized closing of land offices be tolerated.*' This new (for such it is) explanatory regula tion is a capital one to secure the proper and fair transaction of the business of the laJid of ficer, and should be republished by every news paper where the public are immediately inter ested in the management of these important branches of the public service. The Vert Latest Dodge?How to Obtain Promotion.?Whenever, reader, you find some body holding a little clerkship in one of the Departments, or some other little place under Government, being puffed in many newspapers, i intellectually, politically, oratorically, infiuen- I tially, Ac.,?write him down in your own mind j as a seeker after promotion, so far as '? de mon ish" is concerned. In one of the Departments, to-day, we saw a clerk as busily engaged in clipping from newspapers as though he was the items man on a daily, ile was cutting out puffs of the remarkable political services of a clerk praying for promotion, which he had filed j as testimonials of his merits and "claims.' We know enough of the manner in which such " first rate notices" are obtained from editors, to be well aware that in nine cases out of ten they are accorded either as the shortest way to get rid of a bore, or to gratify some third party Were we the appointing |?owcr, we wouldn't ac cord to such " notices" the weight of a feather, against a reputation for blatherskiting, Ac., which usually attaches to every person in such positions who seeks thus to be blown into some notoriety, if not importance, through the edito- I rial goose quill A Ntw Naval Board.?In the Inst act making appropriations for the naval service of the United States there is- the following clause. Vi*: '?Sec. 7. And be it further enacted, That the I Secretary of the Navy be and he is hereby di rected to have prepared, and to report to Congress at its next session for its approval, a code of regulations for the government of the Navy, which shall embrace such general orders and I forms for the performance of all the neces- I sarv duties incurnlx*nt on the officers thereof both ashore and afioat, including rules for the government of CourLs Martial and Courts of In- I quiry,as well as to establish the rank and-frece aence of each grade of officers in the line of pro- I motion, and th* relative rank and precedence I ashore and afloat, between them and non-com?>a tantH, and between officers and petty officers of all grade* not in the line of promotion.'* i Under this requirement of law, the Secretary of the Navy ha* directed a board of naval offi cers to assemble in this city on the 10th of this I month to prepare a code of regulations for the future government of the service. The follow ing officers are to compose the board. Viz: Commodore Wm. B. Shubrick, Commander Jas. L. Lardner, Lieut. Wm. L. Maury. Sur geon Chas. I>. Maxwell, Purser Jno. De Bree, | Lt. Colonel John Harris (Marine Corps.) From TnK Sioux.?The Indian Bureau this morning received letters from its special agent not long since despatched from this city to lojk after the Indian affairs in Minnesota He writes from St. Paul, under date of the 2Sth ul timo, and states that a body of 200 Sioux have gone out after Ink-Pah-du-tah's band, now numbering not more than seventeen warriors. I There were about thirty engaged with him in perpetrating the Spirit Lake massacres. thir teen of whom were not of his band, and are not supposed to be with him. i The agent does not write what is the opinion of well-informed persons there as to the proba bility that the pursuing Sioux will succeed in bringing in the murderers. Naval Courts or Inquiry.?Before Court No. 1, the case of Lt. Marine is still on trial. I Dr. J. M. Minb#,; formerly of the Navy, was cx- I a mined this morning on his behalf. A medical survey as to his physical capacity was then or dered, and Drs. C. D. Maxwell, P. Lansdale and EDgles, all of the service, were directod to make it. Before Court No. 2, to-day, the case of Lieut. M. C. Perry, Jr., being still on trial, Capt. Tatnall, Commodore Mayo, and Lt. Win. Gib son were examined for the appellant, who then rested bis case. Capt. Gardiner was then ex amined on behalf of the Government. Before Court No. 3, tho case of Commander Oreen was continued, to a conclusion. No wit nesses wero examined in it to-day. His defencc is to be read to-morrow, we presume. A Duel Brewing.?In their discussion of the present phase of the Kansas question, the Richmond "Enquirer and South have gradually lapsed into a war of personalities. In its issuo of Friday last, the former journal accused the editor of the latter journal of disingenuous ness. malignity, and the practice of other such anti-christian virtues; to which the South re plies in its issue of yesterday with " tho lie direct." Those who Jtnow the history of edi torial life in that region will, of oonree, cxpcct to hear of an immediate duel between these parties, or to read "can]*" announcing the terms of tho settlement of their imbroglio. An Error.?Some one has imposed on the Washington corresiiondont of the Courier and Enquirer and others here connected with tho^ distant press, in inducing them to write for publication that Mr. Porter Brawley, of Penn sylvania, has been appointed to the Sixth Au ditorship of the Treosury. Mr. Wm. F. Phil lips, of Virginia, continue! to hold that office, for which, we have every reason to believe, Mr. Brawley is not and has not been an appli cant. ? Minister Dodgb.?It is currently reported that the Hon. A. C. Podge bM tendered fcii % ? ? ' * .? resignation of his position as United States Min ister to Spain, and the report finds credence in each quarters, in Washington society, that we are inclined to receive it as being true. The understanding is that it arrived by the last mails received in Washington from Kuropa. A* Army Officer Resigned.?Tha resig nation of 1st Lieut.

Shocking Tragedy?Gambling and Us Cease quences, Ate. On Saturday morning, at about a quarter past five o'clock, a shocking tragedv occurred at the **ea View House, Nevasink, N. J. Albert 8. Mosw. at thr time designated temporary bar keeper, was heard crying murder, as ne was run ning in his night clothes from the hall of the third floor of the main building; and on the ap proach of those attracted by the cry, be retreated to his room aud his bed, some twenty feet from the stairwav. He was found in his l>ed with his throat cut and bleeding profusely. The matting on the passage floor was literally covered with blood to the stairway Upon inquiry, the dying man said that James P. Donnelly, the book-keeper of the house, bad killed him; that during the night they had been gambling, that deceased had won some fifty-five dollars of Donnelly, and that the assassination was the result of a desperate resolution on the part of Donnelly to recover the money. I'pon the strength of the testimony before Cor oner Connery, an examination was 'made of the water closets of the back yard, and a lot of bank bills, torn in pieces, were fi->hed up from the sink. The money consisted of a one hundred dollar bill and a number of small bills, the whole amounting, we understand, to about one hundred and *ixty dollars. The key of the safe in the morninir could not be found Donnelly could give no account of it; and the dirk knife of which he was known to be possessor, and with which it is believed he committed the murder, was probably thrown into the river.

Donnelly apnears to be som^ 25 or 29 years of age. is a small man, very pale, and manifestly very excitable and impulsive. Yet he bore him self very well under the trying circumstances of his situation?he was neither stolidly indifferent, nor abject or weakly confused, but seemed to feel at once a becoming regret for the catastrophe and the necessity of keeping awake all his faculties in his own defence. In his evidence before the coroner's jury, Donnelly testifi-d that he belonged to Washington city. Moses appears to have l?een nearly the same iige, and has led a rambling and irregular life, though not regarded as a belliger ent or quarrelsome character. The prisoner, when about being sent to jail, desired to send a telegraphic message to a lady in Washington, to whom he says he is engaged to married. His counsel advised him not to *end the message, as it would get the young la dy's name into the papers. The prisoner there upon desisted. The purport of the message was to tell the young lady that he was innocent of the crime with which he ischarged. Donnelly is a graduated physician; he entered college at Georgetown, an?l graduated at Mt Pt. Mary's College, Md. Among his effects is an of fice sign. He spent several years of his life in Montreal: was bnrn in No. 33 Mercer street. New York. His father is a man of quite moderate means in Brooklyn, ;\nd does now. or did a short time ago, keep a tailor shop there. His mother is dead. He lias three sisters, two of whom are married. He is the only son. He appears to have kept a large quantity of spurious money about him. and made use of it when he had an opportunity of doing so. On Friday he gave a spurious )?1 bill to Mis. Smith, the landlady. On being questioned about the spurious money by the coroner's court he said that it was usual for all persons in his position in a hotel to have a quantity of such money [Y-p?
