EVENING STAK. WASHINGTON CITY: MONDAY September 7, 1UT. SPIRIT Of THE MORNING PRESS. The Intelligencer, eschewing editorial, is de voted to-day to the republication of new? items. The Union replies to the Intelligencer's late rebuke of it for styling the forty Connecticut clergymen who not long since undertook to in struct the President in his official duties, " rev erend aud impertinent intermeddlers." holding that though the President very properly re frained from using such language towards them, it was its dnty as a public press to characterize the uncalled-for and (in tone) so very improper interference as it deserved to ue characterized. In connection with this article, the Union re publishes, from various journals, highly com plimentary notice* of the President's letter in question lu another column, the Union also discusses the origin of the new " party of plunder,*' for which, it insists, the Intefligcncer is laboring to secure power Its theory is, that it is but the old Bank of the United States party revamped.

At two o'clock Saturday morning Justice Wood, out of compassion for some of the unfortunate beads of faur iies, whose only defence was a mis demeanor. appeared at the station house and dis charged them. Dmtbcctive Fixe?The fire at Brattleboro', Vermont, on Thursday night, destroyed f.om twentv to twenty-five buildings. Including some of considerable value. Unfortunately the entire Are department of Brattleboro' was absent at the time at the firemen's muster at Worcester, and the fact was taken advantage of by some heartless scoundrel to fire tbe town. Every building in side of Ray's bam and Hines JL Newman's old tannery was destroyed, including houses belong ing to Messrs Read. Burnham, and Stebbins, Gates Esty's rule factory- and paper milt.

Webster in question, which Mr. Young Anderson, of Costa Riea, made in the New York Herald of Friday last, may fairly be regarded as having consigned the Costa Rican speculation to oo deep an infamy as that it will only be remembered hereafter as the most desperate and disreputable speculation that has marked the financial history of the current century, save and except those in the lives and health of some seven thousand Amer ican sacrificed under Walker's auspices in order to get possession of the estate?, mines, Ac., of Niearaguan gentlemen, upon the cut-throat rob ber's plea of right-.. The erpose to which we refer above was not wanting, however, to make it certain that the Government of the United States would by no means lend itself to the desire of Costa Rica to dismember Nicaragua, appropriating to herself ?or, rather, as the private property (in part) of General Mora and other Costa Rican specula tors?ail that is at this time of intrinsic money value to Nicaragua?her transit route We have repeatedly taken occasion to explain that the intrigues in progress to the end of obtaio ing this Government's consent to this scheme of Costa Rica, were equally as futile a? the late intrigues to induce the Government here tocon | sent to wink at the renewal of filibustering against Nicaragua by Walker and those hold ing his " grants" of various descriptions for property in Nicaragua, which ho has no more legal right to grant away, than he has to grant the private estates of citizens of the United States in the States of this Union. AVe were long since satisfied that this Govern ment only awaits the news of tho consolidation of the Government of Nicaragua under one, in stead of two chiefs as at present, (though the latter act in perfect accord with each other,) to consummate with that State a treaty which shall secure for the United States a controling influence in all her affairs connected with her transit route. Thus will the present Adminis tration do what the last Administration, con trary to our repeated warnings, among others, neglected to accomplish. Viz : The assnranco to the citizens of tho United States of a safe and economical Isthmus transit bctwoen our Pacific and Atlantic coasts, above and beyond all con tingencies of Central American turmoils or Eu ropean interference, which at thi3 moment is the most important essential to tho future of our whole Pacific commerce, as well as to the con tinued unity of tho United States of tho Atlan tic and Pacific slopes?for Oregon and Washing ton Territories will not long hcncc be, like Cal ifornia, full-grown sister States of the great North American Confederacy. Likely to Prove ov Grkat Value.?The new railroad brake of Mr A. J. Marshall, o Fauquier county. Va., known as tho u McDon ald brake, seems likely to prove of immense value to the future of American railroads. It ha? been tried (used) constantly for six months on a train ?<f the Potomac P^iver, Fredericks burg and Richmond Railroad in Virginia, which is under the management of as careful, compe tent and experienced railroad men?the Rob insons. (Moncure and Edwin)?as perhaps any other railroad in the Union. The result of their experience with it is entirely satifactory. Recently a test of its capability was made on that road, as compared with that of ordinary railroad brakes managed by " brakesmen, " in tho presence of many of the leading railroad men of \ irginia. We extract from their report on tho experiments on that occasion, as follows : '? The machinery ha* l>?eii In use several month*, and has proved advantageous to the company; but it was not in good order, and acted badly, as compared with its dally operations. Yettheex pei intents speak favorably for the principle. Tbe t.ain consisted of one hxomoti vc and tender, and tbree passenger i ars.

Speed vo miles ; steam thrown on brakes at signal: train ran IC1 seconds and 1G>- yard* " It seetus that the new brake is operated by the engineer, who works it by applying steam for pressure Even with such results as those experiments indicate, (and the report ssys that its machinery was not in perfect order at the time, and failed to work as well as usual upon the train to which it had been long attached,) ita advantages in preventing collisions of ap proaching trains must be immense. Sufficiently great, it strikes us. to enable the drivers of lo comotives to guard against them in nine out of every ten cases where they now occur through the impossibility of checking the momentum of trains indue time. The report concerning this invention, emanating from such parties as the Robinsons, after six months' trial of it, cannot tail to awaken tho attention of every railroad corporation in the Union, and thus to result in othor and immediate experiments with this " McDonald brake'' in all quarters of the country. If they confirm the high opinion which the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Po tomac Railroad Company now entertain of it, the inventor and those who have aided bim in iu perfection may fairly be written down a* bo great public benefactors. The Leaders in Parliament.?All in the United States know all about the leading men in the American Congress, because all Ameri cans read onr newspapers But not one of our countrymen in a thousand know aught, person ally, of any foreign statesman of note, though their names?or at least those of England?are almost as familiar to American newspaper read ers. as those of the noted men of their own Na tional Legislature. We find a capital lird's eye view, or crayon sketch, as it were, of those who aro written down leaders in tho English Parliament^ this time, copied into tho Rich mond (Va.) DtsjHUrh, from an unnamed En glish journal, and transfer it to tho Stcu's col umns as embracing much information in a nut shell, concerning the peculiarities of the men of mark of the Parliament llouso, as follows : '?A sketch by an Knglish journal of Home nota bilities of Parliament says that, while Lord Pal m^rston, -n the opinion of the writer, ban about the iK*st brains of any statesman of bis time, yet he has lived thirty nve years as a chief, in public life, at.d his name is unconnected, at this mo rn* nt, with any tangible principle or comprehen sive policy. f'Ord I'aimerston's principles and policy both consist in keeping in office, and where is the English or American statesman who in tbis respect, is bis > Certainly, on this side the water, whilst we have many patriots who have tbe disposition to serve their country there are none who can show as long and unbroken a tenure of power as Palmerston l,ord John Rus set is a man of ability, tact, versatility, probably the only member of the llou.se who ran cope with Palmeiston in a parliamentary encounter. His experience is almost as great, and bis political morality quite as lax as that of tbe astute chief tain of the government force*. Lord John once emerged from the club rooms and tried bis hand at booa making. He wrote a play, which waa damned tbe first night; and he published a vol ume on some subject or other?no one remembers what?whleb is now in possession of tbe trimk rimkerw. However, be has plenty of talent and cuumug. of a parliamentary ?oit, and as a dema gogue, will l>eat some of our politicians. Mr. Gladstone, as a speaker, Is equal to either of these prominent persons, and, as a man, far superior. He Is one of those rare beings In public life, an honest and consistent gentleman, a man of prin ciple and of conscienee. ?? Hut the man in the House who has led the moil remarkable carper is D'Israeli. lie I* one of the few literary men who have succeeded in poli tic#. He has written love novels, and mystery novels, and all that port of literature which was calculated to damage hint anions the representa tives of potiuds, shillings and peuce ; yet his fl nanclal statements in the House are said to be clearer and simpler than those of Ooulborne's, Baring's, or Word's, and the superiority of hi* capacity as a financier recommended him to the Derby administration for the Chancellorship of the Kieh'^oiier. Hut this is not his greatest tri umph. D israeli is a Jew, a Jew in race, name, features and figure, the latter, by the way, su perb ; a Jew who has written for his religion, and gloried In it, yet, fought his way against all the prejudices which hedge round the upward path of every sua of Israel in Great Britain?fought and conquered?until he has become the recog nised leader in thellouse of Commons of the tory Catty of proud England.

It is a magnificent cheat?sucli a triumph of brain* against banks and blood as no career In the history of all mankind can paral lel ; he has mastered the nobles of England and leads them in spite of their distrust.

The New lork Republican papers dcnounco it as infamous, while tbe American party papers not tiuctured with abolitionism, (to say nothing ol the unanimous Democratic press) praise it as embracing soundly patriotic and eminently sensible views upon the most important question now in issue l?efore the American public. Yesterday morning, while in the interior of Virginia, we heard a distin guisbed politician not long since bijterly de nunciatory of the Administration on aecouut of what he erroneously believed to he its |M,licv concerning Kansas, declare that if President Buchanan hud neither written nor spoke a pre vious sentence concerning, or performed an act in connection with public affairs] before writing the letter in question, tbat paper would be suf ficient to prove that his elevation to the Presi dency was tbe most fortunate event for the fu ture of the United States that had oocurred in tbe last quarter of a century. The McLaughlin Lot.?We were somewhat in error, on Friday, in stating the precise ques tion recently before tbe Attorney General with reference to the lot offered by Mr. Andrew Mc Laughlin for the site for the proposed new Lnited States court rooms in Baltimore The question of the validity of Mr. McL.'s title to the property was not before the Attorney Gen eral ; but that of the right of the Secretary of the 1 rcasury to close the previous conditional purchase, was. It seems that previous to the enaetment of the law authorizing the construction of the pro posed new Government building in Baltimore, the lot was purchased for a site for it, on .con dition that Congress should approve its selec tion at the price agree! on. Instead of so doing, in framing that law. Congress declined so to do according to the Attorney General's interpre tation of the act. Such should have been our explanation of the difficulty preventing the Government from finally consummating the conditional contract for that lot.

More Light upox it?A gentleman just from Texas has communicated to us facts bear ing on the recent melancholy death of Senator Rusk which throw more light on that sad event than all else concerning it wo had previously learned. It seems that ho was suffering at the time most grievously from a carbuncle on the back of his neck, which, for sixty days, had baffled the skill of his physician, and bade fair, unless arrested soon, to terminate in his death. He had been suffering intensely from it on tbe day he committed the fatal act, and it was be lieved by those surrounding him that the ago nies of the disease, added to his belief that it would deprive him of life in less than thirty days, had much to do in bringing about his resolution to make away with himself.

Trial of Abigail Gardner. The trial of Abigail Gardner for the muider of her husband, Hosea James Gardner, late post master at Bingham, by administering arsenic to hiin, occupied the Supreme Judicial Court, in session at Plymouth, nearly the whole of last wetk. The theory of the defence is the absence of direct proof, the uncertainty of circumstantial evidence, the want of motive and tbe probability that deceased poisoned himself. The evidence and arguments closed Thursday night, and J udge Merrick charged thejury Friday morning Previous to the Judge's charge. Mrs. Gardner addressed the jury. She lal*>;ed under much excitement and frequently burst Into tears, but solemnly declared her entire innocence of tbe crime She spoke as follow*: '?1 have much to say, hut feel almost unable to say it. I feel that I have l?een greatly injured and slandered by those that have prejudice airainst me: and I am placed in a situation where I cannot help myself. 1 f*-el like one standing alone in the world." (The prisoner was beie overcome bv her emotions ; recovering, in a few moments, she continued :) "and I was almost unable to get h *re this morning. 1 thought la?t night I could say considerable, but I cannot, in Consequence of feeble health. ?'1 do not feel as if I had done anything to put myself here. 1 can declare my innocence before my Maker and before yon all?that 1 am Innocent of the charge which is made against me. Some one done the deed and It was laid to me. I alone have to bear It. I feel as If I was dying by Inches. 44 As you are the judge of this court, knowinp that you are to have a judge in heaven that will judge you In the last day, I hope you will tie mer ciful and spare me for the sake of my children. They are as near and dear to me as my own Life. They have been disgraced by what others have brought upon me ido not I ??el as though I have done anything myself. I know I have not There fore I feel as if I hail been Injured in consequence of prejudice ; and It's falling towards me for what 1 am not to blame. 44 1 Would that God would reveal l<y his spirit to your minds and hearts that I am Irinocent. and that you might know tbe guilty one." She then took her seat but rose again In a mo ment and said, 44 ! ask you to judge me rightly, and be careful that you ao not condemn me with out knowing what you do.'1 Judge Merrick then charged the jury, occupy ing about an hour and a half in his address. At 10^ o'clock, a m., the jury retired, but came into court at 6%. p. m , unable to agree upon a verdict. The Court instructed them to deliberate further, and they retired agaiu. They remained out all night, and came into court again Saturday morning Five of them stood for an acquittal and seven for conviction. Tbe prisoner will remain in custody until re manded . Brutai. ? Some scoundrel tied a dog to the rear car of one of tbe coal trains on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, on Thursday night last, where he was discovered by one of the brakemen while stopping at a water station near Elllcott'a Mills.
