Tat Arrrst or Col. Scmsrr?It ia very elear that imprudent persona, in the mistaken hop* of tbaa subserving th$ interest of Colonel Samn?r, U. S A., (agauist whom Asaialant Adjutant General Deaa haa reeently brought charges, on which a court-martial haa bean or dered.) ire busy in maligning the latter through the preaa?a course whioh the gallant and re apected Sumner will doubtless be the laat one to sanction. In various Northern papera ar ticles bars appeared representing Major Deas as young, inexperienced, knowing little of his duties. Ac., Ac., and intimating that the eharges be has preferred against Col. Sumner are without a shadow of foundation. While we should be tha last to soak to do injury to CuL Sumner by essaying to obtain a prejudgment of his case by public opinion, we hare to say that | such publications conoerning Major Deas are wholly unfounded. He ia an officer of nineteen years' standing in the service, which he entered, as did Col. Sumner himself. from civil life. No one of hia compecrs has served with more gal lantry and more to the satisfaction of his supe riors in rank than Major Deas. He was brc I veted (on tho 20th August. 1347.) a Major for gallant conduct on the fields of Contreras and Churubaaco, after having aerved with distinc tion on Taylor's line in the Mexican war. The fact that he holds the position of an Aa sistant Adjutant General in the army of the United States, after having been the adjutant I of hia regiment, will satisfy all familiar with i the service that he is among the most compe tent officers iu the army of his length of service ?nineteen years?as before remarked. The law requires the Assistants Adjutant General to discharge the duties of Assistants Inspector General also. In his discharge of the functions of the latter position occurred the circumstances that led to( his preferment of the pending charges against Col. Sumner. It is not our province, nor is it by any menns our desire, to pronounce an opinion upon them. We may, however, say with truth that the ac cuser and the accused, are equally gallant, distinguished and efficient officers, who posse.*** I hosts of friends like ourself. common to them both, who, with us. sincerely hope that the re sult of the Court Martial to try Col. Sumner, may be not only his complete exoneration, but the entire re-establishment of their former cor dial association. The only fear wo entertain that such a result may not be consummated, arises from such newspaper representations as those on which we comment above. Invfstmksts. ? The era for investing in wild cat securities t'other side of sunset?land warrants included?having passed, at least for the time being, it will be well for those among us with money in hand laying idle, to turn their attention to boaie investments, which all know from experience to be sure and regular in their value and results, past peradventore. Thus, we may suggest Corporation of Washing ton stock, which has not varied three per cent, in ten years past, amid all the fluctuations in all other similar securities. So, too, with stock in the Washington (faa Company, as safe, prof itable and regular for an investment as any similar stock in the country. They may both be relied on, first, to pay well and regular; and next, to be available at any moment it may be necessary to turn them into cash, at any price they may sell for in these times. Hundreds around us should invest in them as soon as pos sible, for there is much capital in comparative ly small sums in Washington, now unproductive for want of the opportunity to invest satistacto I rily.

IJut to proceed with the answers to vour inter rogatories. I have to say, first, that the imputa Hon of hostility, on my part, towards the admia istration of Mr. Buchanan, la fonnded upon no thing that 1 have either said or done. I voted for him as President, and not only entertain no feel ing of hostility towards him, but 1 wish him success He has only to carry out the principles of the Democratic party, as we understand them '?v "Kinia, to conuuand my cordial support ? 1 hese, ?o far as applicable, Will afford the test by which 1 shall judge bis administration, and sup port or oppose its acts as they conform to or depart from these principles Nor shall I be disposed to apply that test In any captious or nnkind spirit, but as justly and fairly as I can.

Involving the tubjsct of ?Uwy, might be settled upon some common ground where ? Krtv could wilied from the North and South, i East and West. strong enough to defend the constitution against tho assaults of Ita enemies and to administer the government juatlr upon Other than purely sectional ideas. To ralLir s party which mtght be able to maintain the Union upon constitutional principles wan as shiflet of high political i nportsirf, and Justified soins sac rifice of feeling, and oven of Intercut. Accord ingly, the bill waft not such as Would have been framed by delegates of either section, If it had been submitted to them alone. Many, perhaps most of the Southern men, (of whom 1 was one ) believed that property In slaves was as much en titled to the protection of law in the Territories of the United States as property In anything else ? but whilst the Northern friends of the Kansas act wonid not concede this, they agreed to unite In repealing the Missouri restriction so a* to remove the fan undtr which the domestic Institutions of the South have been placed by federal legisla tion. Accordingly, a bill was panned upon the principle of non-intervention, in regard to stsvsry, so far an the general government was concerned, and which left that Whole subject within the control of the people of these Territories, when they should apply for admission a* States This although not all we thought the South entitled to, wns a great advance upon the old order of things, so far a* she wan concerned, because it removed an unjust and odious discrimination against her domestic institutions from the statute book?a moral triumph which was of vast Im portance to the South and to the institution of slavery itself. Ner could the North object to a bill which merely carried out a principle by which it had so recently gained so largely in the series of acts denominated as the compromise measure. To all it ought to have been a subject of congratula tion that a common ground had l*-en found where a party might be rallied from all sections of the country to administer the Government justly UBd without sacrificing the constitutional rights of any portion of the Union. The sole hope of ac complishing so happy a result depended upon submitting this question of slavery to the people of these Territories, when they came to form tiieir constitutions an States, without interference ?'""y ??rton the part of the general government. \\ ith the decision of th? people themselves; so far as tbe character of the new States was con cerned, the democratic party of ail sections de clared they would be satisfied To fulfil, then, the conditions of this agreement, it was all im portant that there should be no Interference on I the i?art of the general government, either through its legislative or executive influence. Any such interference was calculated to dissatisfy the one section or the other. I'nder such circumstances I H was. in my opinion, improper for the highest 1 executive officer in the Territory, the Governor of Kansas, to attempt to influence the decision of the |>eople of the Territory upon this question of slavery. Such au interference on the part of any I branch of the federal government was iuconsist ent with the principle of the Kansas-Nebraska act. Neither do I recognise bis authority to de clare ihnt ??if they (the convention) do not ap point a fair and impaitial mode by which a ma jority of I he actual bona fide resident settlers of Kansas, shall vote, through the instrumentality JU^eS4 1 wl1'j?lu V?? l? all lawfi.l opposition to their doings, and the President and UongTess will reject their constitution." I If the convention Itself was legally constituted and clected, the question of submitting thetr W2i people for ratification was one of which that i?ody had jurisdiction alone, unless indeed, the act which oslled them into being had required a final ratification by the people The practice of States applying for admission, as 1 understand, has been In both ways. Nor has the x>wer of the convention to determine this ones- J tn?n for itself ever Iwen controverted heietofore. I so far as I am info m-d. The convention of Kan sas, If legally constituted, has all the powers of an>? "if/ conv^ntion to form a Stateconstitvition. and if Congress can limit this power iu one re spect, it may in all. If Congress can reject a Mate constitution for the manner iu which the convention has eiereised its undoubted powers why not for the matter also of that constitution, even though it may be republican in its form of government? Or if the Governor of a Territory may attempt to overawe a convention of its people in the exercise of Its powers in one respect, whv not in another* With regard to the abstract pro priety of the particular recommendations cf Gov y\ alker, I do not feel called upon to speak. That !? Vna"?r tor the d<?ri?ion of the convention itself, with which I ought not to interfere The abstract propriety of these recommendations de pends upon circumstances, of which the people ot Kansas, through their conventions, are the best I judges. To them 1 leave it, as their own affair As to which course would conduce mo?t to their peace and a fair settlemfpt of the question, 1 should require a greater knowledge or the actual state of affairs in that Territory to enable me to decide. t With these answers to vour interrogatories, I might here close this letfer, except tnat 1 infer you desire to know how far my opinion in regard Governor \\ alker's conduct may affect my course towards the Administration. What are the pre- I tise views of the President upon these questions I I ^now not; I await their development in the r?*ular course. But should he differ with rne upon these matters, I do not see how any practi cal issue can arise lietwet u him and those of bis I friends who entertain other opinions in regard to Governor Walker's course. I say, I do not see how any practical issue could arise out of this matter between the President and those who might d.tfor with him in regard to these things Ik-cause I do not believe, for a moment that "he I I would aid in an attempt to reject the rotate, if Kansas should apply for admission, merely be- I [ cause its convention did not choose to submit the constitution to the people for ratification Upon [ such a question as this. In regard to the right of Congress to limit the power of a people to'form I tneir State constitution according to their own pleasure, provided it be republican in Its chaiac j ter. I should think there could be no division of opinion amongst the inemlwrs of the democratic party in any section of the Union. There could not be if they remain true to what I understand to tw their profession of faith. To establish the t great principles of the equal rights of the States to the enjoyment of the territories of the United States, which no act of federal legislation can constitutionally abridge or destroy, or of the people of each State to determine the character of their own domestic institutions without preju dice to their claim of admission into the Union, the democratic party has submitted to losses and sacrifices which could only have been justified by the successful accomplishment of a great ol ject. To obtain a common ground upon which all might rally for the defence of the constitution and the peace of the country against the enemies of both, did constitute such an object. And now that the position has been conquered, I after so arduous a struggle, who supposes that the Democratic party would volunteer a retrograde movement, and renounce the fruits of a hardwon victory * To abandon either ot these positions now. by a retrogade movement, would be au act of/Wo d> se In the party, and hot merely a folly but a crime for which posterity would never for- I give it. For these reasons. I do not believe that I the Democratic party, or Hie President whom it I ha* chosen, will aid in unv attempt to restrict the powvr of the people of Kar^as, acting fhroii"h their convention, to form a constitution according to their own pleasure, both in manner and sub stance. provided it be republican iu ltscharacter. Having now answered fully your interiogato rics. 1 need proceed no further; but as you are sine enough to say that you question me not be- I cause you doubted me yourself, but to xav? me from misconstruction by others, I feel that I ought not to conclude without thauking you for your generous motives. To those who are din posed to misconstrue me 1 have only to sav that If the past course of one who has sesved the State

in a public capacity so long as I have ?tto'd? no fttitlicient guarantee a* to Ills future condnct, it is I idle to seek for further security in professions of faith My past course affords the best evidence! of my principles of public action, and these are the testa by which, as an honest man, I am Imund to judge every administration. If, therefore, 1 should difler from au administration becausv it I dissented from these principles, 1 should be blamed, if blamahle at all, not for the act of dlf I fering with a President, but because of the false principles by which I am to judge him; so that it is by these that I am to be tried, after all. ' It is true, that when new questions arise, one may be faiily and properly questioned as to his "opinions. But what is there now here? The I principles of the Kansas-Nebraska act, by which I I have been just testing Gov. Walker's conduct, and the right of the people, acting through their convention, to form a constitution of republican character, according to their own pleasure, with out prejudice^ to their claim of admission as a State in the Union, have all been discussed here- I tofore by myself and others, far more fully than would be consistent with the limits of this letter Nor have I expressed any opinion here in regard to those questions to whfch I have not been com mitted long since. If, then, I repeat sentiments which I have before declared, you will excuse me as 1 do it in deference to your request Very respectfully and truly, yoflrs, To the Hon. Shelton F. Leake.
