EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON ?IX Y I MONDAY Angnst 31, ltttT. arm it of tue morning press The Imtelligmmr review* the eighth annual report of the Board of Regents of the Smith* tonian Institution, just published, explaining its contents, and presenting its readers with % graphic and interesting summary of the results of the Institution's scientific labors up to this time. We, too, arc indebted to Prof. Henrj for a copy of the work in question, which em braces perhaps a* much varied, solid and useful information as is to be found in tny other work of the same number of pages extant in our language. Such publications do, indeed, dif fuse knowledge among inen. It embraces, among other things, full reports of the scien tific lectures delivered umler the Institution s auspices in the course of the year, which, of themselves, form an exceedingly desirable ad dition to the library of auy gentleman The Union disensset? the position of the Southern Know Nothings, arguing that they are in effect allies of the auti-slavery party, while professing to be the exclusive friends and defenders of Southern rights, as involved in the Kansas contreversy. The Official Vote?The result of the elec tion in Missouri for Governor, which wa* held in the early part of the month, and upon which there h<u? been so much speculation caused by the con tradictory returns received? has at length been determined bv the official report; R M. Stewart, Democrat, being elected over James S. Rollins, Emancipationist, by majority. The official vote stands: For Stewart 47.?*75 For Rollins 17,611 Stewart's majority 334 ISTxaxsTJSG fkom Rio Janeiro ?We have received files of the Correio Mercautil of Riode Janeiro to the 15th July. The Correio gives sonic particulars of the German emigration to Brazil. It appears that a Mr. Horn, who is at Potsdam organizing the system, has made arrangements for transporting over 1 .OQliemigrants, chiefly Saxons, by steam to Rio Janeiro, whence they are to be ?ent to the River Mercnry. These emigrant* arc to receive 715 reals per day. from the date of their embarkation to their arrival at their place of des tination, with rations, and the prices of their *ea passage being deducted from their wages. They are to be transported to the Mercury at the ex pense of the >oeiety. Their families may either uccompauy or follow them, and at the end of a vear ihose who have conducted themselves satis factorily shall receive a tract of 32.UU) square yards, at a cost of to be paid in four years, and with out interest. it is by such enterprises that the great Southern Empire is rapidly confirming her position of the preponderating power among her attracted neighbors. There was a great want of specie at Rio. Th<* principal merchants of the place had agreed to pay a fixed premium of 10 cents on national gold. SorTHERjc Pbesbtteriaji Comvewtio*.?The Convention assembled on Friday morniug, and, after half an hour devoted to religious services, prcreeded to business. Considerable prelimina ry discussion took place without any definite ac tion. At the evening session the Rev. A. A. II. Boyd, chairman of the business committee, made ihe following report, wliich he stared had lieen unan imously adopted, with the exception of one reso lution : The committee appointed to propose to the con vention such action as in the circumstances in which, in the providence of God we are placed, is iHrwarj, recommend the adoption of the fol lowing preamble and resolutions: Whet-as all acts, resolutions and testimonies of past General Assemblies, and especially the ac tion of the last General Assembly, whereby sus picion and doubts of the good standing and equal right* and privileges of slaveholding members of the ? hnrch. or imputation^ or charges against their Christian character, have been either iin pl>ed or expressed, are contrary to the example *<id teachings of Christ and his Apostles, and an* a violation of the Constitution of tue Presbyterian Chun h.

Uu f-aturday, the Convention pas-ed three of the resolutions of the series reported from the com mittee on Friday The one containing the pro posal for the organization of a General Synod led to an exciting debate , pending which the conven tion adjourned till to-day.

The Failure to Lat the Cable.?We know of naught that just at this momeut so grieva# the American publle as tha i^ceai diaasttroaE termination of the effort to lay ? . cable across the Atlantic^ ithone fic^' ll in this country deeply regratlt* failore. *l?equ^ tion now is, will a subsequent effort prove more successful ? AV? acknowledge scepticism on that point. We have read closely all explanations and aiwlogies for the failure, without rising from their perusal a better informed or satisfied man upon the subject. Indeed, the only paper upon It so far falling in our way that seems to us to throw light upon it, is an article from the New York Commercial At/t ertiser appended hereto. It goes to show that there is what strikes us as an insurmountable obstacle in the way of the eventual triumph of the enterprise, and is of interest, because embracing solid information upon the subject on which it treats; *' It will be conceded, we presume, that the most favorable time for the operation of laying the cable is pant for the present year. Thin will be a strong argument for the postponement until next Hummer. But such postponement involve* a good deal It is not likely that either the Lng lish Government or our own will permit their respective vessels to lie idle for twelve months. We imagine the Niagara and the Agamemnon will have to be released, the cable will have to be unshipped and the expedition disbanded, and impediments may arise in the meantime to its reassembling on the same errand. Such consid erations may influence the directors of the com pany to resolve upon an immediate renewal of the attempt, notwithstanding the season has so far advanced. The next mail from Kngland will probably bring us their decision, arid it will be looked for with no ordinary interest. '? The first intimation of the disaster was given in a telegraphic despatch from Yalentia, dated Aug. 12. The operator* there having fonnd all communications with the vessels had suddenly cut off, instituted a series of experiments, which at once told them with singular accuracy not onl v the natu'e of the accident, but the distance from the coast at which it occurred; and the details, the substance of which has been published in the Commercial, were subsequently published in a Liverpool paper of the 15th inst. A portion of account we here reproduce : " H M. S. Leopard. Capt. Wainwright, arri ved at Portsmouth on Friday evening, 14th Aug.; and reports that the Atlantic telegraph cable was broken at o'clock on Tuesday morning, the 11th inst., after having paid out successfully 335 nautical miles of cable. The last one hundred miles of it in water over two miles in depth, and the greater part of this at the rate of rather more than five knots an hour. At the time the accident occurred there was a heavy swell on. the Niagara going at the rate of four knots per hour, and as the engineer found that the cable was running oot in too great a proportion to the speed of the ship, he considered it necessary to direct the brakes to be applied more firmly, when, parted at some distance from thestern of the ship. The Agamemnon. Niagara, and Susquehanna are to remain a short time where the cable parted to try some experiments in the deep water of that part of the Atlantic, (2,tX)0 fathoms,) which it is considered will be of great value to the Tele graphic Company, and then all go to Plymouth.' ?' The other portions of the article from which the above is extracted are comments upon the subject, and are only important as supplying in ternal evidence that the whole article was written by an agent or director of the company, or some one equally interested in the success of the enter prise. Viewed in the light of this very evident fact, the words we have italicised should be care fully weight d. It will be seen that the assigned cause of the accident is the engineer's application of the brakes. ' The engineer fount! that the cable was running out in Ion great a proportion to the speed of the ship, and he considered it," &c. We suspect that this statement does not t-ll the whole of the truth. It is not very probable that at any time within the first three hundred and fifty miles of the trip, the regulation of the speed of either ship or cable would be left to the sole responsibiiityjof 'the engineer,"# and it is still less probable that such would be the case when the ship had entered upon the most perilous part of the experiment, the deepest part of the ocean, where everything would de pend upon the utmost care and watchfulness. No one can Mipftose for a moment that everything would then Oe left to the unaided judgment and sole responsibility of 'the engineer,' without casting a it flection upon all who were entrusted with the important and hazardous enterprise. The idea is preposterous. The account is evi dently one siaed and partial. '? Lxamining what is told in the light of com mon sense, it is tolerably certain that the brake was applied after consultation, for th" purpose of breaking the ratle, and that this was necessary in order to save the remainder. 'The cable was go ing at too great a sjn-ed in proportion to that of the ship.' The ship was going at the rate of only four knots an hour, while the cable was coursing off the coil or reel at the rate of 'more than five knots.' Of course it is to be supposed that a re duction of the ship's speed had first been tried as a remedy for this rnnning away of the cable, and tried in vain; and the alternative of breaking the cable wjs adopted as a last resort; the plain Kng lish and undisguised truth probably being that a strong, cross, under-ocean current was running off with the cable at the rate of five or six knot* an hour. This view of the case is confirmed by the fact that in going over the last thirty-five miles, one hundred miles of the cable weie ex^ndtd? run out. '? Beside it was often announced that every provision had been made to tender the mere breaking of the cable no very serious matter. Buoys were to be attached at certain distances, so that "the end ol the cable could be recovered and a reunion of the strands effected. There must have bv?-n therefore graver causes for the aban donment of the enterprise than the simple parting of the cable; that per se. with the preparations, appliances and contrivances made and adopted in view of that anticipated contingency, would not have induced gentlemen so energetic and so committed to the enterprise, to abandon it in despair and to return home with the brand of failure stamped upon them. The fact almost ceitainly is that it became clear, to all the gentle men engaged in the expedition, that the greater part of trie cable would have been run away with by the current, t veil had the vessels remjlned stationary and that without some material change of plans, ail hope of the cable lasting to anything near the end of the trip was given up, even ii the cable could lie deposited at all." ? The engineer referred to was the civil engi neer of the company?not the englner of the Ni agara.?Ed. Io Growing Sunflowers a Preventive roR tue A6UE Fever'?A correspondent, reculleotiug Lieut Maury's learned disquisi tion to prove that ague and fever may be pre vented by growing sunflowers in localities affected by that miasmatic disease, and that, believing in his theory, its author or defender ha* essayed to carry it into practice?writes us as follows Editor of tht Star : There was published some time ago, perhaps a year, an article in the .National Intelligencer, witten either by Lieut. Maury or some one else, in which wan given an account of a means proposed by Lieut M for keeping off chills from j>erso:is living at the Observatory, or, indeed, at any place where these troublesome vis itors aie apt to make their appearance. This reiutdy was ve.y simple, being nothing more nor less than planting Dear such unhealthy spots a patch of sunflower or other vegetable of luxuriant and rapid growth, to act as an absorbent of the [Kjisorious miasma supposed to cause the ague. Some one. wishing to improve upon Lieut. M.'s plan, propo-cd elor-r as a simple and cheaper substitute for the sunflower; it being supposed the clover would be equally ejfinacious with the sunflower, and would moreover furnish, when in bloom, food for numerous hives of ijees whose honey might be made a source of considerable gain. It was stated in the article referred to al>ove, that the experiment would be tried at the Obser vatory, and it 1s understo<id this promise has been fulfilled Lieut. M Is, therefore, very respect fully requested to give the public the iteueflt of his experience in this matter. I have veuluit^l thus publicly to make this request of Lieut. Mau ry as the matter is one of public interest, and a* I have not the pleasure of a personal acquaintance with hiin. hxquiBER The Late Skxatur Ritsk.?Knowing that anything authentic bearing on the cause of the late melancholy suicide of Thoinus J Rusk of Texas, wili prove of great interest to the ma;-s of the Xt.rr'j readers, we make the extract from the Philadelphia Pre** of Saturday last that will be fonnd below We have merely to add to it that, of our own knowledge, the fact that he found himself compelled by his sense of principle to sever his political connection withhiscolleague to whom he was personally attached as though to an cider brother, for a year puatwas a source of deep and sincere regret to him. "The Late Sesatoh Rc?.?An intelligent gentleman residing in this city, but who is now on a visit to the capital of Texas on business, writing to a friend, attributes the lamentable sui cide at the ute Senator Rusk to a motive, which, If true, (and he states it Is widely credited in Texas.) letiect* threat credit on his character as a man |Mi**e*s> d of a sensitive honor, and lends to soften the harsh judgment that usually follow* the fate of the self destroyer of life. It seem, that Senator Rusk's whole nervous system had become terribly shattered by the uncontrollable sufferings the death of his excellent and loving wife had occasioned him. It is said that, while occupying his seat in the Senate, during the pen dency of the debate on the Kaasas-Nebraska hill he uWdeaa arrangement with his colleague, Gen' San? Fiooaton. Djr which it was agreed that both Housfoit and htanself should vote for the bill .Notwithstanding this positive agreements Gen. Houstou voted against the bill In the rfetflit gubernatorial contest in Texas. Gen. Houston^* ing the opposition candidate, both political par ties commenced questioning General Ruslc ?<> cloroly that he felt it was impossible longer to resist the public exposure of Gen Houston. Tor ,n*?y y?*ri General Houston had been his friend and companion?his old comrade in arms during the bitter trials of the war of independence?they had served together in the United States Senate; and he became haunted with the idea that to lire longer would occasion him dishonor. He became the victim to the impression that, under the cir cumstances his death was a measure of over ruling necessity. It was, of course, aa unfortunate mania; but all this evinces the honorable feelings and manlv instincts of one who would not hesi tate to yield his most precious possession to a sense of duty, liawever mistaken.'' The Democbacy of Louisiana on Kansas. A Louisiana subscriber sends as the following letter: Near SrEARsVlLLE, UjflOS Pabtsh, ) Louisiana, August 13, 1957. < Editor of the Star : As several Southern Con ventions and newspapers have taken strong ground in opposition to the Hon. R.J. Walker and the administration in reference to the organl7ation of Jufc Territory of Kansas into a State, I give you below the action of this parish on the saine mat ter, to wit: At a large and respectable meeting of the De mocracy of the parish of Union, Louisiana, in Convention at Farmersville on the lirst Saturday in August, 1^57, the following resolutions were introduced by Gen. W^. L. Dearing, and received the unanimous approval of the meeting, to wit: '? Hesolred, That the Democratic party has adduced evidence on divers occasions of Usability to hold in check the elements of discord in the Union, to conductwith success the administra tion of the Government in peace and war, and to promote the interest and welfare of the entire I nion?while all other political organizations have failed in their great objects, or been tempo rary in existenceand limited in usefulness?there fore it deserves the confidence, respect, and sup port of the whole Union, and is essential to the protection of their rights and to their advance ment and prosperity. J. Resolred, That this Convention highly ap preciate and approve of the instructions yiven l>y our distinguished and worthy President, the Hon James Buchanan, to the Hon. Robert J. Walker, tif Kansas, in reference to the organization of the Territory of Kan>ns into a State, evincing, as we believe they do. ajid the action taken upon theni by the Hon. Robert J. Walker, an increased de termination on the part of Mr. Buchanan and his administration to adhere to and carry out the compromises of the Constitution and the princi ples of the Kansas and Nebraska act with lmpar-* tialitv and undeviating tldelity, thus assuring to the people of the United States that our President will hold even the scales of justice between every State in our Union,commending him and his ad ministration to the gratitude of every true patriot and friend of bis country throughout our blessed Confederacy. On motion, the Convention adjourned sine die. Wm. Crawford, Chairman. bydney Griffix, Secretary. How to Lay the Telegraph Cable.?A correspondent, expressing great interest in the succeaa of the enterprise, writes us the follow ing suggestions as embracing a preventive for a recurrence of the rccent disaster when a second effort to lay the cable shall be essayed. We publish his communication only in the hnpo ' of affording a hint to be reflected on by thoso who are charged with the enterprise, and in the belief that it is the duty of the press to lay before them thus, as well as before the public, any suggestions upon any point of the difficulty that appear worthy even of a second thought: .i M[-,EJi.tdr ?? The sccond attempt to lay down the Atlantic telegraph has, in spite of all the well studied preparations, proven a failuie. Is there not siitJU ient ^ ankeedom in our land to overcome the ditliciiltia* ? Cannot the cable In- reclaimed ' Suppose we employ a very simple contrivance in the shape ofa good sice friction roller, well secured to the stern of the staunch frigate Niagara? pass the end of the cable now fastened on shore over the roller and again lasten it in the shore Then et the steamer proceed carefully to sea.' jhe descending end of the cable perpendicular to the horizon. Would not theraole be naturally drawn up from its bed throughout Its entiie length, and. when -lear its extremity, the steamer lay to until the connection is made with that on board, and the tic t then proceed ou to our tihores. Another contrivance has also suggested itself, and which may possible accommodate itself to the strain, and is, therefore, better than the first: rovide a narrow box with some considerable length to it, insid.-line it with friction rollers I and between these pass the end of the cable. At either end of this box have connecting chains, one leading perpendicularly to the ster:. and the other obliquely to the bow of the steamer. J,et tht"?e he arrauged so a* to Ik- run out simultaneously i.-s the depth is increased; the steamer proceeding to sea \\ hen near the end, the box can be drawn up and the cable secured and connection made I submit the above in hopes if they do not an swer tne purpose, they may lead to the construc tion of an apparatus bas*d on principles somewhat similar and more perfect. \\ The State Constiti tion op Misxksota. The lourth section of tho net to authorize Min nesota to form a State Constitution preparatory to her admission as a State into tho Union, pro vides that the Marshal of the Territory shall take a census of its inhabitants, to ascertain whether it has the requisite number. Ac. The Secretary of tue Interior has accordingly in structed that officer to cause the said census to be taken, when ho shall bo officially notified it \3 the desire of the inhabitants of tho Territory to be admitted into the Union as a State. It will be remembered that the.e are two rival Conventions in session to form a State Constitution lor the Territory Au effort is being made by that under the control of the Democrat* to induce tho other (Republican party Convention) to harmonize their difficul ties and hereafter act in unison with them. We presume that it will succeed; insomuch as we do not perceive how the Marshal can receivc the --official" notification required, until the two Conventions aboye referred to either be come one, or agree to act together in the matter of issuing such a ?? notification" as is necessary to carry out these instructions. Hon. John W Whitfield.?This gentleman, late the delegate in Congress from Kansas Ter ritory, reachcd Washington city last evening. His numerous friends here will find him at Brown s Hotel. As mentioned in the Star some weeks since, he is an earnest supporter of Gov. Walker's policy in the Territory. All know him to be a true man in all his relations in life. To find him so earnest and emphatic as he in in the belief that Gov. Walker has pursued the best possible policy for tho interest of the South in the Territory, under tho circumstances by which he (Gov. W.) found himself surrounded on reaching the Territory, should at least prove sufficient to satisfy all Southern Democrats that wholesale and indiscriminate denouncers of his course are by no means safe advisers, so far as the true interests of the South in Kansas are concerned. Uknebal Hiram Walbridoe ?The many ' friends of this distinguished gentleman in all quarters of the eountry?and we really know no other member of the Thirty-Third Congress who possesses more?will be gratified on learn ing that, according to an oh dit in fashionable circles of the Federal Metropolis, he is to lead to the altar, to-morrow, an accomplished and amiable lady of this city, Mrs. J. M. IJlake. The weddng, we hear, is to take place at the residence of the father of Gen. Walbridge. We presume, from his positional a public man. that it will be attended by a large concourse of those now in Washington noted for their past and present connection with American public affairs.

Wilson, called uron Aldetiuan Enne. of Philadelphia, on Friday, and made a complaint, in which she stated that she was a resident of Manayunk, was flfty-four years old. and hud, a short time ago, after a courtship or three days, married a man named James R Wilson, who represented that he had a pleasant home at the Point, in Baltimore; that she sold her furniture for ?100, which with 81G1 cash which abe had previously saved, she gave to Wilson, directing him to take it to the Commer cial Bank in this city ; that Wilson had not re turned after going to the bank, nor had been heard from since. Wilson, it seems, captivated this woman by what she terms his good looks. She also states that the minister who manied then, is good looking too. Wilson had represented that be was worth a large amount of property in dif ferent quarters, but his new wife has since dis covered that all his representations were false. I hus the said Wilson has secured the nice little sum of 0861, whilst Prudence is once more a widow to all intents and purposes. . IP" ??rat??a thinning out.
