EVENING STAR WASHINGTON CITY: FRIDAY - Va|i?t 14, 1967. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS The IntellittiHerr, decline? to publish a con tinuation of the papers of Pnblivs, its " es teemed Virginia correspondent," in favor of the distribution of the public lands among the several States, on the ground that the popular mind is not open to argument on the subject, more especially in Virginia, where, not long since, the policy was repudiated at the polls by an overwhelming majority in every Congres sional district The editors evidently regret the existence of that state of things political. The Union argues to show that44 Black Re publicanism" is ' against the Constitution, ' and puts *>erritt tfaith on the stand to prove what the ends and aim* of Governor Seward s *? Black Republicanism ' really is. The same paper, in another brief article, presents a flat tering picture, indeed, of the resources of Bra xil, agricultural ^commercial, in the way of rail roads. Ac. The California Democratic State Cok Tmioi -According to the California corres pondent of the New York Evening Pont some ex citing scene* were witnessed in this convention. Hon. Phil. Herbert made a speech on the occa sion. He commenced by congratulating the con vention upon the proud spectacle presented by the assemblage of such a convention, and a laud ation of democratic principles and the Union. He eonside ed this second only to that w hich had assembled for the contest of November last, and touched upon the Republican and American par ties. He then said there was a howling band styling themselves the Vigilance Committee, which, in his opinion, shoiild be held in more odium than all others together; who would be willing to trample the lib**rties under the feet of tyrants. He had no epithets or language suffi cient for the denunciation of those villains. Here followed a stent; of the greatest excite ment. Home members hissed, and a large num ber vociferously applauded In the midst of it. G. W. Patrick, of Toulume, rose and gesticulated earnestly. Edwa.d .McGowan. in the rear of the delegates, was hea;d to exclaim: ?'Turnout the stragglers and hissers?the sons of b?s.'' Mr. Herbert, resuming, said: I do not go be hind the backs of these men to denounce them; I here tell them to their faces what is iny opinion of them. I tell that gentleman who hisses, let him come from what quarter he may, that 1 bid him defiance. He referred to Joshua at Jericho, and said be would like to strike the wretches l om the earth. (Mir enemies are around us, he remarked. They not only dwell in the ranks of the Republicans, but in the rank* of the bands of the Vigilance Committee The cry is: '4 Charge! Stanly, charge' On! Cheesenmn, on"' In con clusion. he predicted that the enemies of Democ racy would be consigned to destruction, and pro posed to welcome the Democracy with three hearty cheers. Subsequently Mr. Herbert introduced the fol lowing resolutions on the afternoon of the last day of the Convention: Resolved, That the perpetuity of our democrat ic form of government is ba*?tl upon the respect of the people for the laws thev themselves create. Bcss/cea, That in, as well as under our forinof government, all power comes from the |>eople. and constitutions and laws are but the expressions of the popular will; therefore the late violation of our constitution and laws, by a portion of the people organizing themselves into armed bodies, and exercising legislative, judicial aid executive functions, is a direct repudiation of the princi ples upon which our government is founded, and can but tend to debase us In the estimation of the people of other countries, and postpone the day when a republican form of government will be the only one known among civilized nations. A debate of the most exciting character sprang lip on a motion to send these resolutions to the committee on platform, with instructions to in corporate them therein. A most violent anti-Vigilance speech was made by W \V Hawks, of San Francisco, a son of the Rev Dr. Francis Hawks, of New York. The anti-Yigilants were ultimately defeated by the adoption of the following unobjectionable cubstitute: Resolved, That the Democracy of California will ever support the constitution and laws of their estate ana of the I'nited States, and willever use their utmost endeavors to preserve sacred and inviolate that priceless legacy of our fathers?the Bill of Rights and the writ of Mafaas corpus The impression prevailed among the particular friends of Mr Weller. that the objects sought to be accomplished by the introducers of the first resolution was to impair the success of the ticket by foisting in anti-vigilant plank upon the De mocracy. The passage of Mr. Herbert's resolu tion would unquestionably have lost some ten thousand Democratic votes Prsbable New Developments iu the Bnrdell Murder. The New York journals have been surmising and hinting that some further discoveries respect ing the murder of Dr. Burdell are likely to come out of the recent Cunningham farce. A New York correspondent of the Boston Journal profes ses to give some of these new disclosures, cau tiously, however, pre<^ding them with the de claration that he does not wish to be held account able for their accuracy. He says: Not to be held to too rigid an account for the full correctness of all 1 have to state?not willing to be held to strict accuracy. 1 have good author ity for saying that probably the veiled mystery of Harvey Burdell's murder will be lifted and the mystery be dissipated soon ; that the darkness of that night of crime will soon blaze with all the brightness of noonday ; that public morality and public justice will be vindicated by the darlc and terrible revelations of that hour of blood ; and the authorities,! am informed, have come into pos session of some most tartling developments, which will show that secresv in such great crimes is made impossible by the laws of God It will be remembered that no account can lie gathered of the manner or place in which Dr. Burdell passed his last night, from the time he toe* his dinner.at six o'clock, at the Metropolitan Hotel, till eleven o'clock, when be was ses-n to enter his hon?e. at 31 Bond street, on the night he was inurdeied. All his old haunts have been visited, all bis old asaneiates found and examined, all the usual places of resort searched, yet no one saw or beard of him after seven o'clock, till he was *?en to enter his house at eleven o'clock at night The fnrl ?ra?. he was not then alive; He lav on Hi* fi'jor u mi*%1e.il anil ttt/Teazd corpse. H'. IC'U killed *oc* a/t-r he tmterid Am house at sev*m o clock that tresis^. Ills probable mur derer was seen to go into that house before he came from his dinner; iu the closet he waited for his victim: with coat and shoes off, he watcbed for the return of the subject, with the intention to garrote him, h:s accomplice and accessory was in waiting m the next room with dagger prepared for a struggle, if needful. It isdnhcult to strangle a stout, athletic man. struggling for his life, and as the struggle comes on, the blade of the assasin is freely used wit h the desperation of a novice and of >?verige and despair. The inmates of the house were away when Bur dell was killed. The de?-d of blood was done. The clothes are iousuu?-d liefore the tamily re turned The"sm*-ll of leather testified'' to on the trial :s but another of the stories of interested medical mcu who have figured in this terrible affair The man of blood, having done the de?-d, t ikes the cloak and hat of Dr. Burdell, slips out the back way. through the lane, into Bleecker street, and, by concert and agreement, at the proper time?that i?, at about II o'clock at night, the time of Burdell s usual return?he walks up Bond r-treet; ^oes holdly up to the stejw of No. 31 Bond street as the liortor; enters so as to attract attention. and the evidence is regaided as com plete He had oe>-*onated Burdell a? the mock marriage; be had deceivtd the amiable, yet cred ulous and unreliable Dr. Marvin, the clergyman who man led the parties ; he could easily deceive those who saw only his form, the well-known ? loak and hat. at the midnight hour, and. when the question is asked,'? Where was Dr. Burdell )?tween the hours of 7 and II that fatal night ?" the answer is. " He was a bloody and stiffened corpse,"l\ing cold in death, and iu his own blood, on Lis otti ?? tloor, the victim of fourteen stairs by an excited, furious, and maddened hand" And when it is said that he ?' was seen toenter bisowu bouse at II o>lock"' that fatal night, through his front door, tb?* ai.?wrr Is,His hat, cane, and ? !<>ak went in on the person of the assassin.'" But Burdell was cold in death in that room long be fore that hour Tbe bloody deed done?the clothes burped?the bloody stains washed out as far as possible the door ioeked?and all is still?when the men who occupied the rooms, chambers, and upper part of the hou.>e came in at ten or eleven or twelve and found all still, and swrarthat no no.se, confusion cry. or smell of burningcloth came to their notice that uigbt after they fame in. All this was a part of a well-consummated plan, but one that is des tined, I believe, loan early and complete expo sure. When the sense of justice is relieved the people seem to breathe more freely?public secu rity and confidence is revived. Men feel that they mar not be hewn down in cold blood in tbe hea t of this great city, at their own firesides, and the murderer not only go unhung but reap a golden harvest, in defiance of law. from the work of blood and death. Such I understand to be the nature of some of the development* about to transpire IJjT Du ing the last thiee years, two thousand one i.i>,id'??i aud six diffe.ent a tides of lost bag gage have accumulated on the \>*w York Centr: 1 Railroad, which are to be sold at auction in Al ton y. WASHINGTON NEWS AN2> GOBS IF. Th? Swiss Treaty ?We hear that the State Department hu of late been litemlly run down with applications for eopies of the treaty be tween the United States and Switzerland. The reason for this demand for the document, is the prevalence of an idea on the part of manj that it embraces a clause making odious and invidi ous distinctions against Israelites who may be citizens of the United States, as contradistin guished from other Americans. On examina tion, however, it will be found that, so far as any action to such an end on the part of this Government is concerned, this idea is unfound ed. The treaty in question was negotiated by Mr. A. Dudley Mann, under the auspicas of Mr. Webster, then Secretary of State. It was ratified by the Senate and President while Mr. Marcy presided over the State Department, which fact should be sufficient to satisfy all of the groundlessness of a suspicion that it em braces stipulations on the part of the United States incompatible with the spirit of our insti tutions. Some of the Swiss cantons have municipal or canton laws, wherein Israelites are debarred from privileges enjoyed by other classes or re ligious denominations of the Swiss. The treaty in question contain? a clause giving to the citi zens of each country certain rights and privi leges in both, wherein they do not conflict with. Federal and State laws regulating our own pop ulation in this country, or with canton or other local laws in Switzerland. This Govcmnfent had no authority whatever to demand of Switzer land, in making the treaty, to accord to any citi zens of the United States privileges they would not enjoy under her laws, were they citizens of Switzerland. There is no precedent for such a demand on our part in the history of the treaty making of modern times, we apprehend: and had it been insisted on, we would have had no treaty whatever, consummated with the Swiss. It is greatly to bo regretted that Switzerland, with all her enlightenment and liberality, has not yet entirely gotten rid of that relic of a bar barous age?prejudice against Israelites on ac count of their religion; and it is to be hoped that increased intercourse with us, under the provi sions of the treaty in question, will soon open the eyes of all her cantons to tho fact that the infliction of civil disabilities upon any of their citizens on account of their religion, ill comports with the progress of the age; in which rests her hope for exemption from the unjust and unfair treatment at the hands of neighboring and stronger powers, of which she has at all times been in dread, for, it may be, a century past. The Revolutionists of Lawrence ?The New York Tribune grows facetious over the fact that Governor Walker has refrained from using troops to prevent the threatened attempts of the revolutionists of Lawrence (K. T.) to sot up an illegal municipal government. It con ceives that cowardice on the part of the Gov ernor has saved Lawrence from fire and sword, ' so far, at his hands! Now, tho truth is?and, although tho Tribune would disguise it from its readers, all the world know it?on the sight of the troops, the valiant men of Lawrence dropped their tails between their legs and pro tested that they would not essay to carry out this threat of attempting to enforce in their town an unlawful municipal government. Thus they volunteered to do what the troops were as sembled by the Governor to force them to do. Right glad are we that the trouble was settled without the necessity for firing a shot into the town. The Tribune would rejoice over that fact, too, if it really cared a tithe of what it professes to care, for the true interests of those thero sympathizing with it. It desires, how ever. a never-ending muss in Kansas, and would like nothing better, evidently, than to have a hundred of its abolitionists shot by I nited States troops, under any justifiable cir cumstances whatever, for thechsnce of making political capital out of such an event. Not long hence it will be the duty of Lawrence to pay its chare of the Territorial taxes. Under the Tribune's advice, its citizcns will doubtless es say to bluster out of the necessity for the pay ment, on the ground that the Legislature that levied the taxes was not legal. Governor Walker will have the money, or sufficient of their property to bring the money uudcr the hammer. If necessary. United States troops will aid the civil authorities in making the levies. If resisted, the Tribune may rely on it the tax law will nevertheless be executed; and its proteges of Lawrence will again drop their tails between their legs on sight of tho troopB. A Delightful Retreat Just Now. ?A friend who has lately sojourned at Blakistoce's I'avilion, writes us in unstinted praise of tho many comforts and luxuries it affords to all who visit it. Its bathing, fishing, sailing, and delightful bay breezes, be tells us, are unsur passed. while the host, in the manner in which he furnishes his table and provides all other desirable creature comforts for his gue?L?. is a h<*?t in himself. Families visiting there may rely on escaping the annoyance of intercourse with the gambling fraternity and its train. Col. Blakistone permits nothing to be carried on upon his premises by which the unwary or inexperienced may be fleoced, and therefore while his establishment meets the anticipations of all others, it is of course no place for per sons who visit watering places to "make" their "jacks'' out of the guest*. Col. B. is winning golden opinions by the steadiness with which he refuses to wink at violations of his rules in such matters, from all whose good opinion is worth having; and in time he will find that he haa made more by refusing to rent rooma to be used for playing faro in them, than by pocketing tho enormous rents charged usually, and paid at watering places for such accommodations. Ho* Ed. Staxlv tibhed Abolitioni*t.? The public were astounded not long since with an announcement that this gentleman was about to take holy orders. We regarded that story simply as a joke upon his well known iras cibility-^ unfitted for the pulpit^-and his re cent evident desire to get into public life again by some lucky somerset or other, of the many he is performing to that end. The last mail from California proves our scepticism about his heavenward aspirations to have been well found ed; for he has accepted a Republican party gubernatorial nomination. The following is his letter of acceptance : " To Meura T W "/V",0"?0' July D> 1857 A Zrjn? lark' ,fa P Ka?kin, and A. ?he b ut d..t>,* to dlachame m hK .

Hig party con sists of about 77 men, with six months provisions, and the necessary implements. It left Placer on the 27th June, was at Bigler Lake on the 13th July, and was to reach Carsoi i Valley on the 15th. It crossed the Sierra N evada with out material accident, though the r< ?ad is rough. In a few days after the date of these advices I this party doubtless commenced operations in | Honey Lake Valley. Its progress so far has i been most satisfactory. Pi.ats Received.?The Genecral Land Office received this morning many iurportant returns of surveys in California and Oregon, embracing those of many valuable lands already confirmed to claimants by the Supreme Court of the United States. They (for Oregon) indicate far more ex tensive settlements made before by the public surveys, than was anticipated. Thus, in the single township, No. 37, South Range No. 2, West Williamette meridian, they number sixty odd. All these returns are moot satisfactory. Politics in Oregon.?A letter from Win chester, Oregon, of June 15th last, from a sub scriber?A gentlemnn high in position?tells us that their Convention to form a State Constitu tion is to meet on the third Monday of this month, and that it will submit to the people, in separate clauses, the question of. slavery or no slavery. The country is in all respects pros perous, according to our ttorrespondent's repre sentations. Adjusted.?Eighty-nine thousand two hun dred acres of land havo boen certified to the State of Arkansas, by the Commissioner of the General Land Office, under .'Jie law of the i)th February, 1853. as granted to aid the construc tion of the Little Rock and Memphis Hailroad. A similar adjustment made last month certified to the same State 1,125,000 acre*, on account of the Cairo and Fulton Railroad. That road crosses Arkansas from northeast to southwest, and is to run 301 miles in Arkansas and 77i in Tennessee. Convicted.?Wm. H. Wash, whose imprison ment in Richmond, Va., for foiling bounty land papers, we announced some time ago, has pleaded guilty under two indictments against him, and the balance have been quashed. As he is old, his sentence will probably keep him out of the way of similar crimes for the balance of his days. Swamp andOverflowed Lands.?The Com missioner of the General Land Office yesterday transmitted to tho Governor of Florida a pat ent, numbered 10, for lands enuring to the State under the grant of September 28, 1850, in the Tallahassee district, containing 208,841 and 9-100 acrcs Mission Lands in Nebraska and Kansas. A patent will be issued for the tract of land in theso Territories granted to the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions under the treaty of 1854, so soon as the plat* of the survey thereof shall reach this city.

Nicaragua.?In Nicaragua quiet is the order of the day, and affairs are assuming a healthy tone. The two dictators, Martinez and Jerez, called the Senate together on the 5th ult., which assembled at Managua.

Oregon.?In the June election the official ma jority in favor of the Convention to form a State Constitution was 5,93?. New Granada?The Congress of New Gran ada passed a law on the '2fith of June, for the reg ulation of affairs in Panama which had proved very distasteful to the people of that State. It puts all national affairs in Panama uoder the charge of a special administrator, with suitable assistants, and its special objects arc the security and protection of the foreigners, taking care of the national rents, properties and rights existing in the State of Panama, and to defend the territory against the invasion of filibusters, Ac. The press universally condemn the law. and there was some talk of seceding and forming a new government. The papers represent the condition of affairs on the Isthmus as most deplorable. SoDTH America.?The elections in Bolivia re sulted in favor of the Government, altogether owing, it is said, to the intimidation of the mil Itarv. The Valparaiso markets, it was thought, had sliirhtlv improved. The British ship Walter, Muncnster, was lost near Caldera, with the captain's wife and sixteen of the crt w. A large and destructive fire had occurred at Valparaiso. A battle had taken place near Arequipa, be tween Vivanco and Castillo. Both claimed the victory.

The letter mail is to be carried on horseback at the greatest practicable speed, and the residue..f me mail in wagons, or otherwise, at a slower rate of speed. Bidders will state in their proposals the schedule of arrivals and departures by which tliey propose to run, and the rate of speed to b;- accom plished. rhe proposals may set forth distict sunts U>r the letter and for the other mails, era combined one for the entire service. 2. No pav will be ma.le for trips rot performed ; and lor each of such omissions not satisfactorily ex plaiiied three times the pay of the trip may be de ducted. F or arrivals so far behind time as to break oonnexion with depending mails.and not sufficiently excused, one-fourth of the compensation for the trip is subject to forfeiture. 3. For leaving behind or throwing off the mails, or ?ny |>ortionor them, for the admission of passengers, or for being concerned in setting up or runniug an ex press convey iu?r intelligence in advanoe of the mail, a quarter ? pay mav be deducted. 4. The Postmaster Generai may annul the oontract for repeated failures to runagreeahlj to contract: for violating the post office laws, or disobeying the in structions of the Department; for refumng to dis charge a carrier when required by the Department to do so; fi?r assigning the contract with?ut the assent ol the Postmaater General; for running a 1 express as aforesaid; or for trans port nig persons or packages conveying mailable matter out of the mail. 5. Each bid must be guarantied by two responsible persons. General guarantees cannot be sd-nitted. J'lie hidand guarantee shou.d be ngiud plainly with the l ull name of each person. The Department reserves the right to reject any bid which may be deemed extravagant, and'also the bids of failing contractors and bidders. 6. The bid should be sealed; superscribed "Mail Proposals, State of ."addressed "Second As sistant Postmaster General," Contract Office, and gent b* mail, not by or to an ager.t; and postmn>ters will not enclose proposals tor letters of any kind) 111 their quarterly returns. 7.

A modification of a bid in any of its essential J terms is tantamount to a new bid, and cannet lie re- I oeivod. so as to interfere with a regular competition nfter the last hour set fi?r receiving bids. t. Postmasters are to be careful not to oertify the sufficiency of guarantors as sureties without know ing that they are persons of sufficient responsibility; and all bidders, guarantors, and sureties are distinct ly notified that, on a failure to enter into or perform the oontraots for the servioe proposed for 1a the ao n-n'ed bids, their legal liabilities will be enforced igainatthem. aarq\ r.
