EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: FRIDAY 1?, 1MT. SPIRIT Of THE MORNING PRESS. The Union moralises over the gradual dis appearance of the North American Indian race and argues to dhow that those who are wasting their tears over the blacks of the land might turn the current of their philanthropy in that direction to great advantage TbeIntelligencer, stirred up by the demurer ot the Alexandria Gazette to its persistent ef forts to lull the South into a dream of the en tire security of its institutions, reiterates its doctrine that abolitionism is but a bagatelle after all. and again classes those at the South who most earnestly counsel Southern unity against the step by step encroachments of the spirit of anti-slavery, with the ultra abolition ' agitators" of tho land. With the Intelligent err we deplore the existence of a spirit of un easiness under the Union, at tho South. The remedy we recommend for that state of things is earnest efforts on the part of journals posses fling the influence of the Intelligencer, to weed out of the North tbe state of things producing it?the persistent determination of a moiety of the voters of the latter to destroy the main fea tures of the Constitution of the United States, by precedent, for the aggrandisement of their own section. Our respected friends share "no panic fears" concerning the march of Abolitionism Yet they must know that in more than half the non-slaveholding States of tbe Union, tbe step ping stone to popular favor is. now. to be confi ded in as being most bitterly hostile to the South and least willing to accord to that section the rights guaranteed to it in the Constitution of the Confederacy. They must know, too. that in more than half the non-slaveholding States tbe obligations of the Constitution relative to slavery and the laws enacted to carry out those obligations, are already dead 1 etters?yet' they share no such panic." Kansas ?A dispatch received here from Le compton says that tbe Constitutional Convention had adjourned to the third Monday of October. The free State delegates were refused seats in the convention. Lr The Democratic State Convention, which met at Boston, nominated for Secretary of State. Jonathan E. Field, of Stockbridge; for Treasur er, Charles Thompson, of Charlestown ; for Au ditor, 9. L. Mead, of Nantucket, and for Attorney General, Ezra Wilkinson, of Dedham. La toe Fiie.?A Are occurred at St Louis on Wednesday, which destroyed an entire block of buildings on Eleventh street, near Market, in cluding the extensive lumber vards of Morrison, Wright & Co., containing 3.000.000 feet of lum ber. Loss estimated at 100,000. The total loss of nil the sufferers is set'down at f 150,000. The in surance is doubtless small. Dilkoatk Elkctio* is Nxbbaska. TLe board of canvassers of the Territory of Nebraska, which met at Omaha City on the 5th. decided on the election of a delegate to Congress. After de nying that they bad authority to investigate the triegal returns or correct the frauds in certain Mormon precincts, they gave Mr. Ferguson a certificate as being elected over Mr. Chapman by 47 votes. Mr. Chapman will contest. Asothu of tbe Pkeachxxs ?Tbe Inde pendence (Iowa) Civilian states that tbe Rev. J. L Keliey, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church of that village, was brought up before Justice Chandler, on Saturday last, on a charge of ''assault with intent to commit a rape " On Sunday evening, a number of the citizens, considering that Mr. Keliey was not at all inno cent of the charge, resolved to tar and feather him. and proceeded to the house of Mr. Jones, where he was stopping, provided with masks, Ac. Mr. Jones presented himself with a g?n, and said he would shoot any man that rame into his house with that purposs. Through the interposition of Justice Chandler, Keliey escaped the tarring, and early Mjnday morning he left town, making the best time on record.

At the age of sixty-live, and w ith all his cards played out, it was believ. d that he would have been happy to have "bid bis head in a coronet," (to use Sheridan's words,) but he probably cher ishes a hope of again entering tue Cabinet?a hope not likely to be realized during the doininaney of Lord Palmers ton, WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. This " Central Averica" Foundered at Sea ?The terrible news reached this city last evening of the total loss of the California steamer Central America, whose prolonged ab sence has caused such anxiety. By telegraph from Charleston we learn that the steamer Thomas Swann. armed at that port, spoke on the 15th, off Cape Hatteras, the bark Eloise, which had on board forty of the Central Amer fern's passengers. They report that the steamer foundered on Saturday, the 12th, and that of her passengers but sixty were saved. The ac count is very meagre, and we may hope that further advices will mitigate the terrible fea tures of the sad calamity. The Central America left the harbor of Ha vana at nine o'clock on Tuesday morning, the 8th inst., under command of Lieut Hernden, of the United States Navy. She had on board five hundred and twenty-five passengers, with one million six hundred thousand dollars in ?pecie from California for New York, and the California mails of the 20th of August. She left Havana in excellent time, with all well on board and in good spirits. A passenger by the Empire City which steamed out from Havana on her passage to New York at 10 o'clock on the morning of the 8th instant, but one hour after the Central America, says 44 We had the Central American in sitfht and kept after her until the afternoon of that day (the Sth inst ) when she outran us so fur that we lost sight of her. On the morning of the 9th instant (Wednesday) the wind was from the northwest, and as the dav advanced it increased to a very severe gale, obliging us to lay to and endeavor to hold the steamer in dining a storm During the days of Thursday, 10th, Friday, 11th. and Satur day, 12th instant, the storm increased very for cibly, and blew a perfect hurricane."' The Empire City, seriously damaged and short of coal, managed to get into Norfolk by burn ing her furniture and portions of the vessel. The gale appears to have been severely felt by all tho steamers that encountered it. The steamer Norfolk was sunk in the Chesapeake; the propeller Caledonia was run down and dis abled ; the Jamestown was blown out to sea, as far south as Hatteras, and shipped a great deal of water, doing considerable damago to her cargo; the Southerner reached Charleston almost a complete wreck, with six feet of water in her hold ; the Empire City put into Norfolk in dis tress. having exhausted her coal, and the new steamer Columbia arrived at Charleston on Monday, having had both her wheel-houses carried away by the force of the sea which broke over her during the gale. The Central America was formerly known as the George Law. She was provided with hori zontal double engines, and being an excellent and staunch sea boa', but a dull sailer, which, in this instance, was a point in her favor, it was hoped that she would be able to weather the storm. Tho Central America's treasure, amounting to about $1,600,000, is insured prin pally in London. Tho vessel is insured in New York. The New York papers state that the steamer Daniel Webster, which sailed yesterday from that port for Havana, and the Empire City which left Norfolk on Wednesday for New York, received orders to deviate from their course in search of the Central America, but it now appears that nothing remains of her within the scope of human aid. We hope to be able to announce, before going to press, that the loss of human life has not been so deplorable as the first reports indicate. The news of the loss of the Central America has created the profonndest sensation in this city. P. S.?We refer our readers to the telegraphic head for further intelligence in relation to the disaster, atiording the gratifying information that others have been saved. A Speech.?The speech upon the issues involved in the current Pennsylvania State canvas recently delivered by Senator Bigler, the appearance of which in the Union wo mentioned a day or two since, is haviug a great run. Our Democratic exchanges from all parts of the country, are coming to us graced with it. During the last presidential canvas, we were a personal wituess not only to the effectiveness of Senator B.'s popular orato ry. but to the remarkable personal influence he enjoys among the men of substance of all I ?rties in Lis State, as enviable as the influence of any other gentleman in the I'nited States, wo caro not who that other may be Thero is a directness and simplicity in his manner upon the stump, which, combinod with the strong and yot carefully balanced thought which dis tinguishes his speeches to a remakable degree, that makes him one of the most effective orators we ever listened to. He has the knack of being able to say only just enough on any subject; an oratorical qualification exceedingly rare in these days of verbosity, which keeps its pos sessor out of many political scrapes, iudeed. It struck us, during the late presidential can vas, that bis hearers were in the habit of re garding all falling from his lips on the stump, as so much testimony from one in the witness stand in whom all confided; a reputation and influence rarely possessed in these days of the prevalence of vehement denunciation, it* eal of well tem]>ered argument, from the hustings. A Theatre for Waehixgton is really one of the greatost needs of the times. That a well arranged and fitted theatre of moderate size, well conducted in all respects, will pay well here is past all question; for every year the transient play-house going population of the Federal Metropolis increases enormously. Even in the midst of this comparatively dull season of the year there are twice as many such persons among us as are in any other American city of the population of Waehington, and when Congress is in session we are rarely without ten times us many hero. The National Theatre failed to be good proj>erty, only because of its immensity. In size it was a theatre for a city of a million of souls. There were, therefore, certain unnecessary contingent expenses of lights, fuel, attendance, labor, Ac., connccted with it, which bad they not been incidents of I keeping it open, it would have at all times been a paying concern?as, otherwise, the saving of expenses would have covered a fair margin of profits There are three or four halls in this city capitally suited for being converted into a good theatre at very little expense, and wc trust that the next month will not pass over without enabling us to announce that some en terprising manager has made arrangements to convert one of them immediately into such a theatre as will pay handsomely in Washington city. A* ISTERESTIHO Pt BMC LANDS' QtESTION Settled.?A correspondent of the General Land Office recently wrote the Commissioner as follows: 44 Will final proof of four years actual residence and cultivation be deemed sufficient to secure a patent (land,) or must the proof *how that the settler resided upon and cultivated for four full Ymm from tk' date ?/ kit ongtnul notification, lets three months only ?'* To this query, the Commissioner replied as follows. Vii: 4- ily the 6ih section of the act of September 27, 1W50, granting donations, settlers are required U> give notice of their claims withlng three months after the survey has been made ; or where the Unds bad been surveyed before settlement, then withing three months from the commencement of settlements la either case, the final proof must show fonr years continuous residence end cultivation Jrom the commencement of the settle ment Naval CoirmTs or Ixqi'ikt.?Before Court No. 1, since the last issue of the Star, the fol lowing gentlemen have been examined in the Government'! behalf in the case of Lieut. Jas. M Wation, rii: Commanders W. W. Hunter, Godon, Marchand and Whittle, and Lieut*' Watson bmith and A. F V. Graj ; and Com. Sloat on Lieut. W.'g behalf. Before Court No. 2, tho case of Ex-Paesed Midshipman Charles Graj was being tried to day, and Commanders Glisson and Goldsbo rough and Lieuts. Tranoharde and Boudinot were examined in it on the Government's be half. To-day, befort Court No. 3, the aa?e of Lieut. Glasson was closed by the presentation of docu mentary testimony. To-morrow morning his counsel, Mr. Phillips, will probably read his defence. The case of Commander Calhoun was about being taken up as the Star went to press. A Fracas at tbk Courts.?We hear that a fracas occurred this morning in the house occu pied by the Naral Courts of Inquiry, between Capt. triah P. Levy, lato of the Navy, and Commander Chas. Kennedy. Tho former sa luted the latter, who refused to recognise him, which led to an effort on the part of Capt. L. to strike him with a cane, and, in fact, to a scuffle between them which was speedily stopped by the interference of by-standers. Of course the?e " proceedings" did not take place in either court room.
