EVENING STAR. W A S II I a O r U N ( I T V : THIRSUAY AbjbH 13, 1MT. SPIRIT Of THE MORNING PRESS. The InteUigmcrr, declining to publish the call for the proposed " National Emancipation Convention." to assemble at Cleveland. Ohio, takes occasion to expose the fact that, though proposing to compensate slaveholders tor the Joss of their property by emancipation, it is but abolitionism under a mask ; saying, in the course of ita remarks, with truth, justice and ioree: *' W ben the slaveholder* themselves 'ball l**ue a 1 call* to their countrymen of the North, similar in it# aim and spirit to that now before us, we ?hall be ready to give it our attention and our re spect But. until that time comes, we are satis lied that anv extraneous movement, however benevolent in design, which aims to confer upon the people of the South a 'boon" which, m the present Mate of public sentiment In that quart , can be regard- d only in the liebt of a # intrusion and Intermeddling in their domestic affairs, will l>e equally immature in and abortive in execution.

WASHINGTON NtilVS AND GOSSIP The New Gkanadiax Dirncri.Tr. ? We have carefully abstained up to thi3 time, from any .illusion to the state of the negotiations in pDgret-sat this point between the United States and New Granada, least, by diseasing them, we might help to complicate them, rather than to aid in bringing them to a speedy and happy termination. Nevertheless, our attention has in the meanwhile been steadily fixed upon them : our sources of information concerning them being simply those that are open to all, of which persons connected with various presses have availed themselves, rarely, however, without evincing that they comprehend too little concerning the points involved, to mnko their speculations concerning them worth a pinch of snuff*. These matters have, however, arrived at a point at which we feel at liberty to break the silence marking our coarse on the subject; be oiuse now satisfied that New Granada is not prepared to deal reasonably with this Govern ment to settle the matters in dispute upon a basis sufficiently just and fair to authorise the I nited States to conclude a final treaty with her. Within the next week, a basis of settle ment embracing the ultimatum of the United .Mates will doubtless be submitted, which, in the present temper of New Granada, as repre sented here, will be rejected ; when, if we are not greatly mistaken, all further efforts to come to term* through negotiations with Gen. Herran will he abandoned by this Government, and that gentleman will retire from the United States Such a termination of the protracted, tedious and temper-trying effort on the part of the United States to preserve amicable relations with a Power so near to us?whose interests, too. are our interests, really, though she cannot be made to comprehend the fact, wc opine?is sincerely to be regreted. The Government here, however, have a duty to perform to American rights and interests, as involved in the imbroglio, which will be firmly discharged, the reader may rest assured. In the mean while, though our relations with New Granada cannot fail to be essentially dis turbed by the state of things that must not long hence exist between the two powers, there is not the slightest dunger that our countrymen will thereby be deprived of the advantages of an isthmus transit across the continent. We look to the re-opening of the Nicaragua route by some American company recognized by the tiovernmcnt of Nicaragua, and protected in it* iree and unmolested use by the Government of tJe United States under the provisions of a new treaty, to make up for the probable disa bilities and embarrassments to the enjoyment by jour countrymen of the right to cross the New Granadian isthmus as up to this time, that bids fair to grow out of the now almost certain failure of the current negotiations referred to above. A\ e are persuaded that Nicaragua compre hends the importance of placing her route in the bunds of some company of American capi talists with means and connections sufficient to make the trip? regularly, and to afford all the requisite accommodations to the travel which, under the phase of our relations with New <>ranada explained above, must be immense. It would perhaps have been more desirable if Nicaragua had the means herself to furnish these necessary accommodations for crossing her isthmus, and to insure the necessary peace and immunity of travelers availing themselves of her route. In her present condition.Jiow ever. that is not to be dreamed of. She must call to her aid?adopt?some company or other of American capitalists, (if it be but to prevent anarchy there.)who will te strong enough to protect their property and franchises inland, leaving to the Government of the United States the right to interfere in their behalf if necessary on -hore. and the duty of the proper protection of their operations seaward. W e are most anxious to see the vast interests of our countrymen involved in securing an un interrupted transit across Cent nil America se cured past peradventure. The state of our re lations with New Granada involve a warning of the pressing necessity for so doing without a moment's delay, if that be possible We flee in the present condition of Nicaraguan affairs the gulden opportunity for the consummation of this so desirable end. Ilence our frequent re currence to the subject. The Lat:: Minnesota I.nma.n Troi blks. This morning the Indian liureau received from its Superintendent of Indian Affairs in Miune suta, despatches, dated 20th July ultimo, at the Lower Sioux Agency, detailing all the cir cumstances attending his late refusal?under instructions from here?to pay to the Sioux and \ ai.ktons their annuities, until Ink-pah-du tah s band be delivered up, which necessary policy on the part of the Government was near resulting in a general Indian war on the North western frontier-averted, as we explained a day or two since, by the promptness with which the Secretary of War met the requirements Gf the Interior Department for additional troops and the firmness and good sense of the officersi civil a.- well as military, in charge there. The public arc already familiar (through pre vious publication) with many of the events marking the assembling of .">.000 savages at Yel low Medicine, in hostile array, in the course of these transactions. How war with them was averted, as well as the temper they manifested and the course on the part of the Government that held them in check, may be gathered from the following extract from the Superintendent s report above referred to : '?On the evening of the l?th nhnrtl? ?fi., I ?Wr ** a sol^'wa?dZllftlS stabbed by an Indian?a See-See-ton?Hose bv the camp of Major Sbe.man, withont catiw or t.r'ovo ??.Er.'z^i:^n,iw^hhr:btf?.b?ce^ aiwTm * Maj Sherman immediately Een't of theTndilS0,^rVia"|dHd. tLe ',niI,edi*'edelivery two hundred of ? ? 1,,d,an" reived him witn two hundred of their gun* pointed toward* him lie, h?wev?r, demanded the Indian.

There is no longer a question as to the election of Gilmer. Amerioan, to Congress from the fifth district of this State; nor have we any longer a doubt as to the triumph of Shaw, Democrat, in the first district. Qiltner's majority is near, if not quite 600. and the vote of Curituck (434 Democratic majority) secures Shaw's election we think, past peradventure, by 12 majority. We therefore write down the delegation in the next U. S. House of Representatives from North Carolina to be as follows. Yi?: First district? Henry M. Shaw; Second?Thoa. Ruftin; Third? Warren Winslow; Fourth?L. O. B. Branch; Fifth?Jno. A. Gilmer; Sixth?Alfred M. Scales, Jr.; Seventh?Burton Craige; Eighth?Thos. L. Clingman?all of whom, except Mr. Gilmer, are Dcm x*rats. MISSOURI. We can no longer resist the impression that James S. Rollins has been elected Governor of Missouri. According to the St. Louis Intel!i cencer his majority in seventy-five counties is 4.050. The thirty-two counties remaining to be heard from cannot obviate it. His majority in tho whole State bids fair to reach at least 1,500 if the returns confided in in St. Louis prove correct. A very indiscreet selection of a candidate on the part of the Democrats has done its share to bring about this deplorable result. We may add that the fiiendsof Col. Benton, in Missouri, are now thoroughly uni ted with the opposition to the Democracy?those of them most conspicuous for their efforts to force themselves into the Cincinnati Democrat ic National Convention, being the leaders in making the amalgamation complete. Wm. Scott, Wm. B. Napton, and John C. Richardson are elected Judges of the Supreme Court of Missouri. TENNESSEE. Up to tho moment nt which we are now writing (10 a. m.) we have no contradiction of the alleged defeat of Etheridge. for Congress. This was a consummation devoutly to be prayed for?this substitution of a Democrat for Emer son Etheridge in the House of Representatives of the United States. Messrs. Zollicoffer and Ready are the only opposition members elected from Tennessee, which sends eight Democrats also, to Congress. KEN'Tl'CKV. The following is the result for the Legisla ture in Kentucky : Senate. Ami rican-party mcmijers holding over 13 American-party members elected 1S57 7 Total -20 Democratic members holding over G Democratic members elected 1H57 13 ? 19 American-party majority //.?? w. Democrats and Old-Line Whigs. Americans ^ H This summary of the result for the House, though but approximate, is. we think, correct. It makes the Democratic majority on joint bal lot 17. ALABAMA. Though we have no additional returns from the Fifih district of Alabama, our impression now is that Houston is re-elected there. We draw that conclusion from the fact that had he been defeated the news would certainly have been expressed and telegraphed North by this time. No news from his district is therefore good news, iadeed, for his friends His having been the only district of the State at all iu doubt for some days past, we write down the delegation from Alabama in the next House of Representatives of the Uuited States as follow* : First district?James Stallworth ; Second?E. S. Shorter; Third?Jas. F. Dowdell; Fourth Sydney Moore; Fifth?George S. Houston; Sixth?W. R W. Cobb; Seventh?J. L. M. Curry. All Democrats. An Example for tub North.?The reader will doubtless remember that not long since the 1 Treasurer of the Petersburg and Weldon Rail road became a defaulter, was convicted of em bezzlement. Ac., and is now in the Virginia States prison, atoning for his offence. His was a remarkable ease because occurring in the South, where dishonesty on the part of officers of railroads is of very rare occurrence. His prompt conviction and punishment told the tale of the proper direction of the force of public opinion in the community wherein the offence was committed. It seems that ho has subsequently paid up his defalcation, and, indeed, all the expenses of tho Commonwealth to secure his conviction. We quote an account of his carcer subsequent to his conviction, as follows : '? Petition for the Release of Falcone*. An afl'ecting appeal to thecleinenry of Gov. Wise i? now in circulation in the city, for endorsation. to procure the discharge from "the state prison of Alexander Falconer.with the particulars of whose misfortune our readers are already acquainted. Over two hundred names have been subscribed, including the gentlemen composing the jury in the trial of the felony, and many of our mo*t in fluential citizens. The unfortunate man has now nerved more than eiyht months of his term of two years, has paid hack to the Petersburg Railroad the entire amount of his defalcation (91,000) and defrayed the expenne* of the Commonwealth in the pinserutlon of the ca?w?. A moii'/ tlrn terms of the petition is mentioned the design of the pris oner to leave, not only the ftate, but the country. The appeal is rertainlv deserving the favorable, consideration of his Excellency."?Petersburg E rpress. Now, we take the liberty of respectfully ask ing the New York Tribune to publish the above brief extract by way of showing its readers the true morale of the South, concerning which it is interminably preaching such bugaboo stories This case is, if wo mistake not, the first of tbo kind occurring in the South, whereas all know that hundreds, if not thousands, of similar defal cations have occurred in the "better society'" of the non-slaveholding States, not one of which have been punished?as far as wo know?as the crime of Falconer has been. Can we bo far wrong in attributing the frequency of the per petration of such crimes nt the North to the state of Northern morals?public opinion, if the Tribune prefer?which always prevonts the in fliction of due punishment for them, wo care not what may bo the letter of the law thus broken.

GEORGETOWN At'FAIRS. C9mtfendenr$ ?f Tkt Star GsotaETOWK, August 13. 1857 The water was romm^n< rd to be let on upon the Georgetowa level of the canal, early tbia> morning, and, by one w two o'clock, it will be sufficiently well filled to enable the mile-and-a half of boats lying above Fisher's lock, four miles above our city, to commence moving down. We learn, from some of the boatmen, that the numbar which have accumulated at the point lie fore meationed. and all haarily laden with coal, grain, fcc, is not short of one hundred to one hundred and fifty. Between this and to-morrow morning we anticipate the arrival of a perfect fleet; the haain, however, in its present condition Is perfectly useless. During tne recent heavy freshet in Rock Creek, some of the waste weirs, at the dam. were so badlv injured as to render them valueles?; consequently, the basin cannot be filled until they are repaired, which is now being done, and which will be completed ia some two or three days from this time. A general moving up the stream commenced among the unloaded boats early this morning. The canal packet boat M. C. Meigs, of Ritter's line, will resume her regular trips In connection with the Argo, in the morning, leaving our city at 7 o'clock. Upon the whole, a more cheerful spirit is visible along the canal wharves and coal docks this morning than we have observed for manvdays past. We saw, this morning, at the office of Barron A Stterer, quite a handsome testimouial of respect which has been procured by the Presbyterian congregation of Bladensburg. to t?e presented to their former pastor, Rev T. W. Simpson, now in charge of a congregation at rtyke?vtlle, Carroll county. Md It is a handsomely embos-ted silver goblet, bearing the iusciintion: " To the Rev T. W. Simpson. A token of love frem his people? Bladensburg. Mlzpah It will be taken to Sykesville and formally presented to the Rev. ifentlenian by Mrs Barron, wife of the gentleman named al>ove. Mr. Simpson was formerly a reel dent of our city, and carried with him the estevm and g'"?od will of our eltixeas The Rfv. Thos. Muliadv. formerly president of the Georgetown College, bas been appointed to the pastoral charge of 'IVinity Church, iu the plw e of the Rev. Mr Sciampl. who goes to Worcester College, as heretofore noticed in the Star. The steamer George.Washington left the wharf of Libbev A Son this morning, with n large party en roafe'down the Potomac, pleasure seeking. They are in charge of the Union fire company of your city The schr. Arctic, of the Messrs Dodge's line of New Yoik packets, and brig Andover, of the Messrs. Hartley's line of Boston packets are now at our whatves discharging heavy cargoes of mer chandize for Washington and our city. No change has occurred iu the flour or grain market since our last report. The line of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal certainly furnishes a fine field for missionary la bors. if we may be permitted to Jndjje of the ne cessity of such'a work by the morals of most of those who are engaged boating upoa it. The most perfect adepts at profanity we nave ever met with among any class of persons, we think, can be fouid among them. We verily believe. If one should (if be could stand it) spend a week mix ing among them, and take accurate notes of their general conversation, and should afterwards pie sent it to them verbatim, that it would shock the nerves and disgust the moral sensibilities of the most reckless among them.
