W? are sure that on fhis, In a wec^e?*rjJkc puMican party press'that ctin be nSchic in that time by the Tribune et nf (Republi can) published in tho Northern cities will be out in full cry. denouncing the President for a more confirmed bonier ruffian than Dr. String fellow him*lf. ton the other hand, it is so soon clear to us that tne letter has disarmed all of the real Southern Democracy who were so late ly suspicious of the Kansas policy of the Ad ministration. Those of them in this city cannot fl d words to express their regret* that they judged the President hastily. With one accord tney a<jmit that the letter places his adminis tration firmly and fairly on the Cincinnati plat form of non-intcrference in the domcstio affairs of the Territory, and also on that Convention s plodges to maintain intact the rights of the South as gnaranteed In the Constitution. Who that would be fair could ask more than this? that in the last election accepted in pcrfect frankness the positions of the platform of the Cincinnati Convention? That the opposition at the North will gnash their teeth at the letter is to be cxpectcd; while the hand full at the South who prefer disunion to the continuance of the s'aveholding States in the Union with their rights under the Constitution fairly maintained, will also fail to have their hostility to the Admin istration disarmed. All others?conservativo Whigs, Democrats, north and south, and Amer ican party men who care more for country than party?will ,ay amen to its doctrines, which cannot thus fail to prove acceptable to three fourths of the people of the United States. Intimites for the Succession, (coverixg Intrigces ror. Congressional Plunueu.) W a.-hington is full of rumors concerning pro gressing intrigues for the next Democratic Na tional nomination, in various quarters of the country. \\ e hear many amusing gtorios of t 10 .sort, in much of which, our experience teaches, there is more truth than poetry. The truth is, the patronage of Congress is regarded by the friends of more than one aspi ring gentleman as affording the means of can va3iing for the Presidential nomination. So not a few bona Jide public men are already nervously anxiou? that their friends?co-labor ers and supporters?may get possession of the most important Congressional offices next win ter. Already we hear candidates of this, that ani the other interest in the Democratic party freely talked over, while none but some of'the old incumbents seem to be candidates of the Democratic party. This is a sad state of things Nevertheless. it exists, even so early; and. if continuing, will bring their party affairs at this point into inextricable difficulty, bocausc it will bring about the settlement of important public questions more or less with reference to the fu ture of this or that aspirant, rather than to the end of fubscrving the public interest. We never before knew this state of things to mani ect iue'f so soon alter the inauguration of a new Administration, to which it involves great injustice, indeed It should be the aim of the leading Democrats of tho country, in and out of public life, to do their best to secure the entire success of an existing Democratic Administra tion, and to take no thought of its sncce*<>or uuiil the approach of the time for choosing del egates to the next National Democratic Con vention. That was the old-fashioned way of doing the thing. But these are fast times in which we live. Laving ttie Cable.?We continue to find in our exchange papers any number of disquisi tions upon 'he late disaster in laying the tele graphic cable, tew of them, however, being written with knowledge of the subject that makes them worth republishing. Now and then we couio across one like the following, which really sheds light (intellectual if not vis ible) upon the obstacles to the possible success of the enterprise. We take the article (replete with sensible re flections) below, on the subject, from the Urook lyn (N. Y.)

The Eatti.e with rnr. Chevenne Indians. The War Department is in receipt of despatches from the Cheyenne expedition, giving the par ticulars of the battle with the Cheyenne Indians at Solomon's crcek. 011 the 211th of July. About 300 warriors were drawn up in battle array, to meet the Vnitod States troops. Tho six compa nies of cavalry advanced upon them immedi ately; when near them: two companies were de. tached to turn their Hanks, and tho whole then made a headlong charge, broke them, and pur. sued them seven miles. A large number of warriors were killed and wounded. On our side, two privates were killed, and Lieut. Stuart and several men wounded. They are all doing well. A post was established, garrisoned by one company of infantry to take care of the wound ed, and the command immediately started in pursuit. After a march of fourteen miles, they caine to the principal town of the tribe, where they found one hundred and seventy-one lodges standing, and nearly as many more which had been hastily taken down; and most ot the poles were left on the ground. A large amount of dried meat and other property of every descrip tion was found in the town?the Indians evi dently having taken nothing except what could be gathered hastily in their flight. The town, and everything it contained, was immediately burned to the ground. The next morning the command took up the trail, leading in the direction of the Arkansas. Capt. Foote, with his company, (C, 6ih In fantry,) was to leave about the 27th of August t) join his post?Fort Laramie. Land Warrants. ?
