W A S-tfl NflTON CITYt YTESDAY.. A*?t IS 1?*7. SPIRIT Of THE MORNING PRESS. The L hi on republishes an interesting letter to the Cincinnati Enquirer, from Mr Robert Atkinson, Third Auditor of the Treasury, wherein that gentleman (who was formerly an <^hio Democratic State Senator) makes it rery indeed, that the reeent defalcation of the Ohio State Treasurer is fairly attributable to tb? pertinacious refusal of the Republican party in the Ohio Legislature to meet the Democrats properly in the efforts of the latter to throw proper guards around the State Treasury?the latter having for years labored strenuously to that end, againt the opposition of their oppo nents. The Inttlli(*tiictr describes thf/action of the Knoxville Convention upon the African Slave Trade question, on which it appears to have been for the most part engaged, so far. It seems that Mr Bryan, of South Carolina, introduced m resolution recommending the abrogation of so much of the Ashburton treaty of 1842 as pro Tides for the presence of an United States squadron on the coast of Africa, to aid the pre vention of the African slave trade. The Inttl ligeneer say a that? " An amendment to these resolutions. designed to guard their purport from misconstruction, and declaring that in the opinion of the Convention 1 it is contiary to the settled policy of the country to repeal the laws prohibitory of the African Rlare trade.' was. after an animated debate, lost by a vote of 40 yeas against 51 nays?a majority ?f the Convention thereby refusing to pronounce an opinion adverse to the revival of this traffic." As finally passed, Mr B.'s resolutions are as follows: Re.iolreti, That, in the opinion of this Conven tion, the eighth article of the treaty of Washing ton, ratified on the 10th of November, 1842, ougnt to be annulled, under the provision of the first clause of the eleventh article of said treaty. Kesolred, That a copy of the above resolution be sent by the President of this Convention to the Senators aud Representatives in Congress from each State here represented, with the request that It be laid before the Legislatures of their respec tive States for their consideration.

Axxeican Association foe the Advance ment of Science.?On the second day of the session, the sections on mathematics and geology were organized and proceeded to business. Among the essayist and chief speakers were Commodore Wilkes, U. S. N., Profs. Barhe, Dana. Sir \\ illiam Logan, Mr. Ramsey, geologist, from London, and Prof. Snell. At night a grand soiree was given to the mem bers by the National Historical Society of Mon treal,*! Bousecour's Hall, which was attended by over one thousand ladies and gentlemen. Dr. Dawson. president of the association, opened the proceedings in an admirable speech. His allu sions to the various nationalities present (Ameri cm. Fiemh, English and Geiman.) all engaijed in the -ame noble pursuit of science, were r?. ceived with hearty applause. Ex-President Fill more and other distinguished visitors occupied prominent seats on the dais. The spacious ball was beautifully and appropriately decorated Tne name* of Fulton, Morse and DeWitt Clin ton, as well as of \\att, Laplace, Ac., were in scribed on the walls, and were interspersed with the stars and stripes, tricolor and union jack.

The Southern Commercial Convention. This convention, at Knoxville. Tenn, after a ses sion of four days, has adjourned to meet in Mont gomery, Ala., in May next.

Thb New Graxadiak Isr?iir?.?We find in the Journal of Commerce of the 14th inst. an article explanatory of the policy of New Granada with reference to her isthmus transit route, which embraces manj facts of interest and importance to the American public hitherto unknown comparatively, in this country. We republish it below, by way of sabstantiating our remarks made a few days sinee upon the growing difficulties which New Granada is now throwing around an amicable adjustment of the questions concerning her isthmus at present in issue with this Government. The reflecting reader will at once perceive in these details ad ditional weighty reasons why the United States authorities should hasten to socure our great and hourly ?increasing travel and freighting business across Central America, so that it may hereafter be beyond the contingencies of the caprices of any such government as that of New Granada. It strikes us that there is no telling, with such a power or government to deal with, at what hour the American public may find the Panama isthmus entirely closed to the crossing of Amer icans or their property; or so hampered and embarrassed by unjust taxation in the face of the very letter of the stipulations of that Gov ernment, as that the nominal right to resort to it will be practically useless. All such occurrences as those explained in the article we republish, tend to show tho pressing importance of a policy with reference to other Central American isthmus transit routes that will render our countrymen entirely independ ent of New Granadian facilities. The Isthxcs Tbaxsit.?'The Congress of Bogota has just passed a law relative to the " ?e curity and the administration of national affairs on the Isthmus," which is* likely to prove ex ceedingly onerous to citizens of the United State*, besides exposing the two governments to un plea>ant political complications. By it the sov ereignty of the Isthmus is transferred from the Governor of the State to an "Intendente General," as an executive oilicer, vested with power to ad judicate upon all questions relating to the mili tary force, national revenues, intercourse with foreign governments, &c. It also contains a clause establishing a passenger tax, agalost which the United States government has already earnest ly protested,?a tonnage tax, and custom house duties,?a large proportion of the revenues there from to go for the support of the Intendente and his subordinates. The amount to be thus placed at his disposition is estimated to be not less than 3180,(KM) per annum. Of this measure the local Eress of the Isthmus expresses a strong disappro ation. The Centinela, which is regarded as the organ of the people, even ventures to suggest that separation frotn the general government would be preferable to submission to the obnoxious enactment. The Isthmus, it says, has been "per fidiously sacrificed" in the endeavor to get '?abundant resources out of the railroad, and to obtain the means of paying the foreign debt." It further remarks: ?'Such are the benefits which the Isthmus of Panama receives for being united to New Grana da?such the indignities?such the insults, of which it is the victim. They tell us from Bogota, that on account of the sacrifices which the result of the pending question with the United Slates will cause it to make, New Granada cannot con tinue purchasing at such high price the honor of having the Isthmus adorning the National Coat ?[ Arms. Neither can the Isthmus continue pur chasing at the expense of the sacrifices whichare imposed on it, and of the humiliations which are placed on it. the honor of continuing a part of a nation unable to protect it, that only esteems it as long as it can produce revenues, as if it were a feudal appendage which gives it the means or ex tinguishing the cancer of its foreign debt. If the relations between the Isthmus and New Granada must continue on a basis of intolerable inequali ty; if this situation must be Indefensible for a lon^ time, let us do uow what we must do later?lei us separate." The Panama Star and Herald speaks in a simi lar strain, and expresses adoubt whether the yov ernment of the United States will calmly acqui esce in a measure apparently unconstitutional and in violation of existiug guaranties and treaties. n?at Journal says: '?v\ e do not believe thai this clever dodge by which tne foreigners on the Isthmus (for the whole burden falls on them) will he thus trebly taxed, will escape tne keen perception of Mr. Cass at >\ ashiugton, or be submitted to. by him a* a satisfactory settlement of that part of the de mand of the United States that requires guaran tees for the future. If these guarantees are to be purchased at the cost of the tonna?e and passen ilrar'-' nwlTi'r. " Yi thill If tnn dear, and in fact all that the I nited States has iH-en contending for, for the past two years, will lie 1 oat, and the last state of tLe foreign interest# on tlie hahmus, under its threefold unjust taxa Hon, will 1? worse than if the passenger tax had not been resisted." <; 5i!,'on,* V**" durable to secure a recogni tion of the Isthmus by the chief commercial Gov ernments lis an international highway, subject to no oppressive restrictions; and the act of the government at Bogota is most to be regretted as indicating a policy hostile to the attainment of tnts end. _____ I.nvbntors.?A late ablo and interesting ar in the Washington Union hog given rise to many newspaper jeremiades concerning the pecuniary fate and misfortunes of American in ventors generally, many of which embrace no little gammon. Thus, the fate and failure to accumulate, of that public benefactor, Eli Whit ney, id mourned over as a disgrace to the na tion. It stea?s to us that Whitney's notorious want of thrift and business tact were at fault in bis case, rather than American gratitude. Like l-ost men of genius in any line, he was incapa ble of descending to the stern realities of busi ness transactions, and was therefore bitten in texrly all his bargains; in rnajting them, and then in the manner in which they were carricd out If men of genius fritter away their oppor. tunities to accumulate, and their means accu mulated, surely themselves and not the public, arc to blame. It is said that they are compelled to part with their inventions, generally, for a a mere gong. We apprehend that, in the hands of such of them as make such bargains, they are only worth a mere song. They sell them for all they will bring. and the capital, shrewdness and energy of assignees most frequently make them of substantial value, by bringing them into pub lic favor, Ac It not unfrequently happens, too, that assignees are themselves terribly bitten in machinery patent rights. Our own opinion is, that of every ten for which inventors find purchasers at what they are willing to sell them lor, not half ever get back their money out of them. Such wo believe to be the impression among the patent ngents in this city, than whom no others are so competent judges in the prem INI* The mournful ease of Professor Morse, too, is another one of those being resorted to to prove the ingratitude of the American public to inventors. All know that his genius has ac complished much for his country, though all know that he has been about as well paid pecu niarily as any man ever was in any age or ' clime lor such public services. When he in vented his electric telegraph machinery he was very poor. Out of it he has already become very rich?say worth a quarter of a million of dollars. The idea of newspaper-growling over bis treatment by the public, w, to u*. an amus ing one. to say the least of it. The Pr?T?.?oH to Mr Molua.-A com munication ... the New York Herald of jester day throws some additional light upon the an tecedents of the distinguished gentleman who is said to have been recently accredited to this Government by Costa Rica. We republish it for what it u worth, being satisfied that its statements concerning his career in Central America are correct. It forms an amusing ad dition to the account of him we republished yesterday from the New York Times, which was avowedly derived from his own lips: CawJt? New MiaisTia raox ? *Ta Rica.?To the Editor of the Herald Having read an article in one of the city naiiers sssffy1a,whi^an ,ntfrview ??-Sires as SZ& W^?

Munoe') forces, then numbering, according to the General's account 9,000, but in reality only about 300 greasers The Captain end Munoe were to revolutionise the State of Nicaragua, make a coup d'etat and divide the spoils. The captain seeing In the dim distance visions of empire rising up before him in a country rich in mineral wealth, where Cortes had reaped mill, tary laurels, where Alvarado had planted the flag of Isabel and Ferdinand, and where nature sup plied all that man required, without the necessity of dailyexertion, packed up all his littleoddsana ends and migrated with Munos; but imagine his chagrin (to use his own words) "to find. on his arrival* about three hundred miserable looking wretches, each one with a shirt and bat on, and rot fifty muskets in the party." The captain cbandoned the enterprise as a hopeleen one, and settled down in the country. He found it much more profitable, it seems, to keep a hotel in Ri vas, when the Transit Company was tir?t opened, than to mix himself up with filibustering pro jects. His son. who has a good deal of humor, did the agreeable, and their business was becom ing quite lucrative, when the Americans began to crowd into keep opposition hotel. Wanting elbow room, the captain crowded out and emi 6rated to Costa Rica, where he contracted and uilt for that Government a small-sited steam boat, for which be got a big-sized price. Subse quently he went to San Francisco, and opened a club house over Wells, Fargo 4. Co.'? express office, but closed it again through the advice of his son. He then returned to Costa Rica, where it is said he edited a paper called the Seminal. It was his son, Col. George Canty, who we are told defeated Col. Titus on the San Juan. Now, I am anxious to know whether the Capt. Canty described above is the same gentleman who'is announced as the new envoy from Costa Rica. If he be, one cannot .help admiring a des tiny which places a man in sucn a variety of po sitions, and renders him equal to them all. New York, August 19, 1857- J. M. B. A Mechanical Achievement.?Yesterday afternoon, a block of granite was brought from the atone warehouse, near Georgetown, to Penn sylvania uvenue opposite tho Treasury build ing, which is to be an antac or pilaster in the Extension, in place of the south pillar of the portico of the present structure. It weighs more than 34 tons, and was drawn to the build ing in the short space of two hours, by five pairs of horses and six pairs of oxen, each ox of the team weighing at least 1,800 pounds, and the horses being large in proportion. In turning corners, it was of course necessary to resort to the use of jack-screws to turn the so tremen dously loaded hinder portion of the stone wagon when its fore wheels jammed against its load. These jack-screws were of course hydraulic, and were two in number. With them, this re markable load was moved by two men with as much ease as though it was " a mere circum stance." We have rarely witnessed a greater triumph of mechanical skill than was involved in the noiseless, easy, and apparently matter-of-course transportation of this hugo block of granite. The teams of cattle (oxen) used on this occa sion were brought hither about a week ago. and are said to have cost the contractors $300 per yoke. The six yoke started the Immense mass before the horses, also hitched to the load, com menced to pull. The Laying of the Cable.?The Navy De partment has interesting dispatches from the Commander of the steam frigato Niagara, to the 1st instant, when that vessel was in the Cove of Cork, where she arrived on the 27th ul timo. On the passage from Liverpool an ex periment was made to ascertain how slow the ship could be mado to go under steam, and one and a hnlf knots per hour was the important re sult. The ability to go at so slow a rate involves almost an insurance of suecess in paying out her share of the cable. On the 28th ultimo, the cable on the Niagara was connected with that on the Agamemnon, and messages through the whole 2,500 miles of cable, were sent and received in half a second) as we published from unofficial sources some days ago. Capt. Hudson (of the Niagara) had taken on board, from the Agamemnon, ten miles of tho ialger or lu-oUuu u<si/to, 14 kali Uccu Jvlvl mined (according to bis request) that his ship should first pay out. Capt. Hudson adds: " Theengineers of the Company will havecom pieted th< ir pieparations this afternoon, and the vessels of the squadrou (which are all here) will immediately leave this port for Valentia bav.and from thence on Monday, the *1 instant, iecure the shore-end and commence paying out the cable. It will be a most singular coincidence, as Co lumbus left port on his voyage of discovery for our Western World on the 3d day of August, just ?loo years ago." ___ 0 'J Lioht-IIouse Keepers Appointed.?Tho Secretary of tho Treasury has recently made the following appointments of Light-house Keepers Vix: George La Vino, at Cheboygan, Mich., vice Charles Brannack, removed?salary $350 per annum.

Surveys in KANSAS.-The Commissioner of the General Land Office has received from the Surveyor General of Kansas and Nebraska plats of the re trace mcnt of a part of tho southern boundary of the Shawnee Indian lands from the point on that line two miles east of the southwest corner of tho Shawnee reservation westward to the northwest corner of the Sac and Fox lands, situated in township 15, south, range 1.5 east, of the sixth principal meridian in Kansas. Also, plats of the resurvoy of the southern boundary of the Pottawatomie lands, and the survey of the northern boundary of the Shaw nee cession lands in Kansas, beginning from the southeastern corner of the Pottowatomie reservation, and running westward to the north western corner of the Shawnee lands, on the Smoky Hill Fork, making about sixty miles. Boixdaries TO be Run.?We understand that the Secretary of the Interior has requested the Secretary of War to have run off, by army engineers, the boundaries of the territory leased by the United States from the Choctaws and Chickasaws, (by tri-partite treaty,) in order that the former may locate upon it, for the time being, we presumo, the Washitas and some other Texas Indian tribes it is designed to place thereon. The territory in question lies between the 98th and 100th parallels of west' longitude. ? Surveys of Donation Claims in Oregon.? The Surveyor General of Oregon has transmit ted to the General Land Office eleven plats of surveys of the claims situated in the southern portion ol Oregon, upon Gold river, a tributaiy of Rogue river, and the vicinity of Jackson ville. The business of the General Land Office in Oregon, by the by, is progressing most satisfac torily , we hear, which goes to show that tho Surveyor General out there, Mr. John 0.

Corrttpondtnet of Tkt Star. ^ Georoetow* , August 16, 1857. Probably there Is no point In our city where there exists more real necessity for gas lights than on Market street, in the neighborhood of the ca nal, and Ritter's warehouse. At this point most of the canal boats, trading to our city, are in the habit of concentrating; and the locality being nat

urally rough, persons whose business calls them about the canal whirves after night fall, when there is nothing like moonlight to guide them, are all the time in more or less danger of being precipitated over some of the high banks into the canal. Hut a few nights since, an individual, while passing along, slipped, and fell into the canal, and would doubtless have been drowned u ^?r "'e assistance of two gentlemen, who, hearing him struggling in the water, went to his assistance, and succeeded in rescuing him from his perilous condition. Moreover, tnis is the landing place for the canal packets, and when ever they are detained on the way, either by acci dent or otherwise, until in the night, passengers (especially strangers) are often subjected to con siderable inconvenience, by having to grope their way in the dark, through dangers such as we have before described, to some one of the lighted streets. The mains could be extended from Bridge street to this point at a very trifling expense; and, doubtless, the private and public consumption would compensate the gas company for such an outlay. We regret to have to announce the death of our respected fellow-townsman, Col. William B. Robertson. The Colonel was a native of King Geo^e county, Va., but for the last twentv-iive or thirty years a resident of our city, and an efficient clerk in one of the Government depart ments. He died at his residence on the heights yesterday, after a protracted and painful illness Many of the hands who struck for higher wages at the coal docks yesterday, have signified their willingness to return to work at the former wages, ?l 25 per day. But few of them, however, have been re-t mployed. Other persons have in most cases been employed in their stead, and opera tions at both docks again goes bravely on. A refusal on the part of the companies to re-employ them would doubtless in most cases serve them right, as they took advantage of them by striking at a time when the wharves were crowded with vessels awaiting for cargoes, and when scores of heavily laden canal boats were awaiting to get rid of their cargoes that thev miuht return. iv* ?r? pira>ru tu learn that the canai propeller James S. Cathcart reached Cumberland on Sat urday She was detained some six hours on the way, but succeeded in making the run up in about two days. If the above report be correct, and we have no reasons for doubting its truth, she will doubtless reach our city on her return on Thursday. We regret exceedingly that our enterprising fellow citizen, Mr. Vanderwerken, of the Union line, had, during the excessively warm weather of last week, five valuable horses so seriously in jured by driving them too rapidly iu the heat, as to require the necessity of withdrawing them from the line. Their injuries are such as will doubtless prevent them from ever being of much more service. He also had a very valuable one killed. The fault does not rest with the drivers, but mainly with those passengers who, being de ficient in sympathy for the poor panting animals, are frequently calling to the drivers to hurry up, and never seem satisfied unless the horses are kept going at a rapid gait. We would remind all such of the old adage, " The merciful niau is merciful to the brute." We would remind the retail trade of the Dis trict and Alexandria, of the sale of sugar on the wharf of F. i A. Dodge, to-morrow, at 12o'clock. I he sugars to be offered are in flue condition, and all of excellent quality. This will, doubtless, be the last sale of the treason, unless something shall occur to prevent its continuing to be a losing busi ness to the enterprising gentlemen. See adver tisement. The following gentlemen have been elected officers of George Washington Club for the ensu V'glime : President, J.J. Rolls; Vice President, J. 11. Howell; Secretary, A. J. Riley; Treasurer, C. A.

The Bukdell Baby.?The baby which figured so largely in the Burdell sham-birth, was put up for public exhibition at Parnum's Museum last week. It was inspected andcriticised,touched and fondled, and not a few of the female visiters kissed the ?'little darling," a liberty the young ster always resented by bawling vigorously when it was done, though usually its temper was ex ceedingly placid for a two-weeks-old child. The infant seemed healthy and well cared for, and Bive proof of its vitality bvan appetite anddiges on that was perfectly regardless of appearances. In all other respects Justitia Anderson (a name suggested by W arden Daly, of Bellevue Hospi tal, aud acquiesced in by the mother) is like other female babies, and its existence vibrate* between suction and somnolence. Mortality of College Graduates.?It Is stated that Piof. Pierce, of Harvard College, has been recently canvassing the facts now accumu lated in the triennial catalogues of that institu tion, concerning the duration of life of its gradu ates, and the results of his research are valuable He finds that the probable duration of life after graduating, taking twenty-one as the average aire of graduates, is over forty-two years?or two and a half years more than the probable duration of life in other persons at the same age. A college education is, then, favorable to long life An other result is, that the student* who distinguish themselves as scholars have lived longer, on an avernge, than those whose standing was low Habits of diligent study would seem, then, to favor health aud life. A contrary impression has prevailed on both these points. To Preserve Herbs.?The Herkimer Journal savs: " All kinds of herbs should be gathered on a dry day, just before or while in blossom. Tie them in buudles, and suspend them in a drv, airy filace, with the blossoms downwards. When per ectly dry, wrap the medicinal ones in paper and k?ep them from the air. Pick off the leaves of those which are to be used in cooking, pound and sift them fine, and keep the powder In bottles, corked up tight." Dr. Page, of this city, says that herbs should be bruised or crushed, while In the green state, and they dried. When so treated, they retain their color and odor for a great length of time.
