EVENING STAR WASH ikOTON Cl'lY: TI KKMY fceplrmher 1SJ7. SPIRIT OF THE MO RISING PRESS The IutrlUgenctr deprecates the prevalent sickly philanthropy which results in a fail ire to enforce penal statutes in many States. The existence of this sentiment is. by the by, by no means as prevalent at the South, we are glad to be able to say, as at the North All remember the inflexibility with which the law was not long since enforced against the treasurer of the Petersburg and Roanoke Railroad in Virginia for a dishonest defalcation to the extent of a few hundred dollars. We may mention, too. that in ^owtfc Carolina penal law is everywhere ex ecuted with rigor and justice that are not sur passed by the execution of similar law in Old England, tho brightest feature of wbosa gov ernment certainly is the inflexibility and purity of her courts of justice. The Union replies to the Baltimore Ameri can. Patriot and Clipper, which journals deny th? truth of its statements concerning the efiect on the business of their city of the impunity with which her jewels?her precious bands of Plug-l'glies.

Sectional Misrepresentation. ?Three fourths of the circulation of the New York Tri bune ia attributable to the soal and (steadiness with which it haa pandered to tho insane sec tional hatred of th* Sooth that exists in* the breasts of hundreds of thousands of ignorant, prejudiced and otherwije short-sighted people of the North; multitudes of whom, however, do not really know that they are afflicted with such a phobia, and are highly indignant under the soft impeachment. The Tribune, as a matter of business speculation, has steadily cultivated (nursed) thi3 state of sectional senti ment among its readers, and literally never appears without containing articles (he design of which is neither more nor less than to make it apparent that nearly all the vice, poverty, crime and ignorance that curse the land, exist in the God-forsaken slaveholding States. To be sure, day by day whole pages of that elabo rate journal are devoted to the record of crimes committed, and the exposure of other things militating against the well-being of society in the non-slaveholding section of the country, which tell of a truly fearful state of things there, so far as the future as well as the pres ent of Northern morals is concerned. The phil osophers of the Tribune, however, have an easy way of getting around the dilemma in which more modest folks would find themselves in the matter of reconciling their theory of the so much-worse South, with the practical proof they daily present of the actual state of things moral, in their own section of tho Union. It is, simply, boldly to demand that the truth of their views of the relative condition of the two sections, in dustrial, moral, Ac., shall bo taken for granted. mafgre the palpable facts they publish concern ing their own section, and their utter inability to find facts concerning ours on which to hinge their persistent slanders of it. WVaever fail to bo struck with the mendacity of the Tri hnne'it war on the South, when reading its own news columns, which day after day thus refute its arguments referred to above, But a very few days ago, whon inveigh ing against the God-forsaking character of the South, as illustrated by the course of the oppo nents of the abolition party in Kansas, it pa raded tho names of hundreds of the ten thousand patrons of its very last New York "wrinkle"? The I enus Miscellany?a libidinous publica tion recently broken up by tho police. Among the whole ten thousand, it teems that two only disgrace the slaveholding States by being In habitants or citizens of the South?two only. So, too, do we fiud it publishing Column after column, embracing practical warnings of the impropriety and danger of dabbling in Western lands at ruling prices. The theory of most it has published of late on that subject is. that the dishonesty and recklessness of speculation in Western non-slaveholding Mate lands, rail roads. Ac., a* now practiced, is at the bottom of all tho financial trouble that has recently come upon the North. At the same time it '?out Herahls the lit ratU ' in misrepresenting the true condition of the South concerning the value of property and the safe returns for labor of every description there. The Herald, it | will be recollccted, maintains in effect that the South, and especially Virginia, ia but the land of tho Hottentot at this time, as it were. Aceo hm especially?her alleged darkness, indo lence. vieiousness, Ac., Ac.,?has been the theme of the llerattT* ridicule for perhaps ten years pa-t, until hundreds of thousands of really igoo. rant newspaper readers at the North have como to believe that of all parts of the l/nited States, none other approaches the Kastem Shore of Vir ginia in tbriftlessness; and that consequently one is better off in a Northern poor-house, than as the owner of thousands of acres in that be. righted region. The following brief letter, which wo take from a late number of the Kichmond South, however, tells the truth, and only the truth, of that sec tion of the Old l)ouiibioD'i industrial statu*: Tj thr Editor of th' South ?In the month of July, tbcre appeared io The Sontlt a notice of vark.ii* salr* of lar?d in Accomac. at piieea ran ' ing from S4o to per acre. Since the date of that publication, aa unusual number or sales have been mnde, and for the most part at very bii'h prues Two of th*iu I will mention, for the lurtber info, ma I ion of Mr. Thayer, a* wHI a* for the Waolit of those of )our leaders in Vir ginia who imagine the Kjstern Shore to be a pov erty-stricken Kandlteach, productive only or lish oyster* and sweet potatoes. Mr <>arri?ou*? farm of 171 acres of bii'h land (wuU some marsh,) sold for H^tMio?twin ? about *70 per acre of high land. M r Thomas Floyd's farm of 100 acres, sold for or s!*l jn-r acre. Both of theso t,:irts are situated In " Bradford'!* Nerk," one of the thriving aud beautiful agricultural districts in Virginia. Neither, if I am ri"htlv informed, has improvement* of such a costly character as to act ouut for the high price obtained. It was for the inn.l that the price wan paid?an adventitious value being imparted to it, hoi*ever, by its advantageous situation with ref erence to the water. Yours, Jkc., j We have merely to add that there was no speculation in tbece prices; for land sales in Eastern Virginia are invariably honu Jtile busi ness transactions?the figures involved in them representing money actually paid, and to be paid in -ix, twelve and eighteen months, with out de]?ending on any contingency of a rise I of prices. Lands bought in that section of the State are invariably purchased for imme diate use, (cultivation,)and not on speculation. We submit to the reader of common-sense, that facts such as are found above, show, as clear as light, the entiro groundlessness of the persistent efforts of the Tribune, Herald, et i,l omur genu ? in the newspaper line, to misrep resent the condition ot tho South to the tteople of tho North. The Cox vextion to kh.wie a Coxstititiox roR KAX8as.?On taking his neat as President of this convention, Mr. Calhoun delivered an address from which wo make tho following brief extract by way of shewing bis views upon tho line of the convention's duty, the latter being at this time the most interesting political ques tion in issue before the people : "A constitution wisely framed and properly fairly, aud honestly app.oved by the true citizeus of Kansas. will nettle ail the diihculties that sur round un, and that have been surrounding us. and will at once restore harmony to the union i ^?re wiihouti Perhaps. doing Injus tice to the feelings of any honest and true lover of his country, that the formation of such a consti tution prostrates and crushes to earth a party that is seeking by every means in its power to obtain ascendancy, even at the cost of the sacriflceof the I nion itself.

The Lessor to ee Drawn from It.?Th3 New York Jonr/ial of Commttrct, in ite com ment? on the loss of the Central America, says ? 4i The steamer was provided with six life boats.! Two were Francis's metalic boats, and the re maining four were fitted up with air tanks on the end ana sides, and each of the six was capable of holding from M to 75 persona. She waa also eqipped with 600 of 7WJ life preservers, hat had no bulkhead partitions. We have here another terrible lesson respecting the necessity of having all sea going steamers furnished with water-tight compartments ; for it is reasonable to assume that had the Central Aineiica been thus provided the lamentable loss of life now chronicled Blight have been greatly diminished, If not wholly averted." In this brief paragraph is conveyed tbe les son of the inefficiency of the present mode of insuring life at sea npon those ships which the public regard os being most safe, owing to the nominal precautions taken to that end. Tbe qaestion is, will that terrible disaster superin duce better preparation on other American steamships for such a storm as that in which this ship went down ? Preparations to Receive the Filibus ters.?The Central American Governments are energetically moving in the matter of defend ing themselves against the new ft I ibn storing expedition being prepared to sail from tbe Uni ted States. A congress of ull tho Spanish American Republics has been oalled to devise an extensive plan of Mutual defence against them. To-morrow, we will explain what they proposo to do in the premises, in detail. In the meanwhile wo publish below a very recent pro clamation of the Costa Rican Government on the subject, which shows how keenly alive .they are to tho necessity of being much better pre pared to check tbe first efforts of tho filibusters to get a foothold in Central America, than when Walker first landed on Nicaraguan soil. Had such a spirit then actuated the Central Ameri can Governments as now actuates them,Walker and bis men would have been driven out in thirty days, if one of them could have got off" alive. Experience, after all, is indeed a very sure teacher. The Crotiica ot August 8 pub lishes the following decree: Juan Rafael Moha, President of the Republic of Costa Rica. Considering that in the United States recruit ing is going on for the purpose of invading Cen tral America a;%tin; that \V. Walker being the proiuotor of the recruiting, and that he do?-s it without a legal mission, without a Hag, and with out justice, and only for the purpose of convuls ing Central America, and planting on its soil the slavery of man by man, which the religion and the civilization of the age Is opposed to, and which our laws expressly forbid, that for such acts he and those who accompany him place themselves iu the position of pirates : DKCKSKS. Article I.

Ede. a passenger, gives a verv in te renting account of his descent into the " waters below" with the sinking ship Not beiugaware that the ship was making her last plunge he i,eld on tightly to one of the* ropes and wis carried down to a great depth, under the impression that it was merely a sea sweeping over her. In this state of things his mind bad become somewhat bewildered, and it was not until the resistiu-r force of a larye cork life-preserver which he ha<l on bioke away his hold upon the vessel that he was again in possession of his reasoning facul ties and began to realize the fact of the ship haying really sunk and carried him down He quickly, however, reached the surface, and was cauitd far up aud sustained to a considerable height above water amidst a surrounding ma*, or human beino* stiuggling on all sides for as sistance ami for life. At this moment the scene he says, was most harrowing, and as different person# caught at him for assistance he wascoin jiellcd to throw them ott as best he could, or else be hopelessly engulphed himself. As he rose to ,lh,; there was a wild and powerful screaming amongst the mass of lungs who were eddy lug round and round in the whirlpool caused by the descent of the engulphed shin His tlrst purpose was to extricate himself from the confused and struggling crowd, which he succeeded in doing by swimming outward at Intervals, as he from time to time freed himself from groups that he encountered. The result in his own case, and as conllnned by observation of those who surrounded him, establishes /as he considers) the great value of the cork life-pre servers, and the utter worthlessness, or at lSast insecurity and unreliableness, of the tin-preserv ers, which are generally so much more abundant than any others on all sea-going steamers Captain Herndon, of the Central America, has his life insured at the New England Mutual In surance Company for 95.0UU. Of the twenty-eight children that were saved the greater narf were small?babies. One, a boy' was left on board with the mother in the Hist boat, but was taken into another, and saved. The stewardess of the lo*t steamer was a stout negro woman. She had collected the money thrown awav by the passengers, it wt$ supposed, and buckled it arouud the body. The weight of this money was the cause of her death when she was hoisted into the Marine, where she died from having too much gold about her loins. ^???> nrp-RESOLUTIONS PLEDGING THE Cor I p? >rat ion of Georgetown to make a sulworm tion to the Alexandria, Loudoun, and Hauitsluie llsilroad Company, upon certain conditions.
