The Vmon discusses "Freesgilietn," arguing th%t it ia founded upon an entire tuisconoeption ? f the true character and priuciplcs of the Gov ernment of the United State?. The same journal admit* with regret that Iowa, in her recent election, has chosen a Re publican partj Governor and a small majority of her Legislature on the aame fide, and at the Mine time takes occasion greatly to regret that this result will probably deprive Iowa of the services of the Hon. Geo. W Jones, in the Sen ate of the United States. We have known Mr. Jones well as a legisla tor *o?iuany year* past, and question whether in all that time there has been another so in variably effective member in either House of Congraas. Not given to spouting be has devo ted himself for the most part to legislative at torneyship where interests oommitted to his care have been concerned. As a legislative attorney be has achieved mora than any other member?the enaetment of nine-tentbJ that Congress has done for his state having been achieved through his exer tions, as well as much else designed for the beaefi; of the great West generally. If he b? superseded, the interests of Iowa here will re ceive a blow from the effect of which they will not soon rccover; for their aake, therefore, we hope that when the newly elected Legislatare come to elect to fill the vacancy occasioned by the expiration of Mr. Jones's present term of service, he will be re-electcd.

Her greatest speed was from a measured point at Sandy Hook to a measured point off Governor's Island?just eigh teen nautical or twenty-one statute miles She ran this la one hour and four minute#, starting against tide. She had on about this time about two-thirds of her available steam, and was about half laden This speed Is equal to the highest attained by the Albany steamers Oregon and Van derbilt, upon their great trial trip* two years ago. This speed would take her to Albany In seven houts. There was no perceptible jar in the ma chinery, every part of which seemed to work in perfect unity. Farther from California?By the St. Louis.

The launch of the mammoth s'eamship hereto fore known as the "Great Eastern," but now for mally christened "I<eviatban," was commenced at noon uu the 3d instant The usual means were taken to mev?' the vessel, but for some time with out avail. After about three hours' laltor, the ship had moved about six feet by the stern, and a little over four feet by the bow, whea one of the powerful purchase chains broke, and the work had to be temporarily suspended Operations were to be resumed as soon as the accident could be rect.fl'-d, and the London pa pers of the afternoon of the 3d say it was confi dently hoped that the ship would be afloat at high water en Vvednesdar, the lib During the operat ;on* a sodden strain on oae of the drums cans* d It to revolve with great veloc ity, throw.njf several of the men into the air like stiaws, and knocking down other* with great vi olence.

The Time# of Wednesday savs that a postpone ment of further effo, ta to the 'Jd of December bad been resolved upon, and that, in the mean time, the ship will stand in great danger of settling, owing to the . minei.se piessure (1W,(JU) tons; upon the ocw-uade eartn The Liverpool Albion says: ** The bombard ment of Grevtown is a subject painful to the re flectiou of all bitfhminded men, both In England and the United States The facts are now fa miliar to the public, and we shall not repeat them.

Mini?ter Plenipotentiary from Nicaragua to the United Slates, was to-day formally presented, by the Secretary of State, to tlM Preddenl; Md that his presentation and reception were acqpBpanicd by the diplomatic addresses oiaal to Mch occa sions. A Treaty with Nkaracua?A treity be tween the United States and Nicaragua was duly signed yesterday afternoon at tbe State Department by General Cass, on behalf of this (tovernment, and Gen Irisarri. Minister Plen ipotentiary. on that of Nicaragua. We have every reason to believe that the leading fea tures of this important convention are correctly stated in the following brief despatch sent North last evening by the agent of the Associated Press : .."\Va!H,?otox' Not W?There is little, if any doubt that a treaty was signed to-day by Sec i*f7 *** an<^ *^e N icaraguan minister, Inaarrl, relative to the transit route. The route in to be Pr?L??.te<* ,*ie United States troops during the inability of Nicaragua to do so, and a free port is to be guarantied at each end of tbe line. So cempany in protected by name, but only that haying a valid grant, which shall recognize the obligation of this treaty. The government of Nicaragua ha?, through its minister, nignified to the government of the L'nited State# that tbe only company having such grant in the American At lantic ami Pacific Ship Canal Company, created by N ica.agna in 1849, and amended in June last. Irisarri will be foimaily presented to the Presi dent to-moriow." Those who have been attentive readerv of the Star will at once comprehend the pleasure we enjoy in thus being able to announce that the Government of the United States have at length assured to the uses and commerce of their citizens and the world, for all time, with out a dollar of Government or State taxation for the privilege of its eajoyment, the best isthmus route across the American continent. Up to the destruction of the late Nicaraguan transit arrangements by the filibuster Walker and his marauders, that route was regarded by travelers as much more convenient?being far healthier and five hundred mi!es shorter (to California) than the Pananis iouie, and as pos sessing other important advantages, making iis virtual acquisition by the UnitedStates a mat ter of prime national import. It has at length been fairly acquired, not in fee, but under terms which will keep it open lbr all time at the smallest possible cost to the ravelcra or freighters of the whole civilized world; and in so doing will assure to Nicaragua due protection against the lawless among our own citizens, as well as all the advantages which she may derive from the settlement upon her isthmus cf industrious, intelligent, and skilfull North Americans seeking to better their fortunes by practising the arts of peace, rather than through rapine, arson and murder, a* under filibustering auspices.?of Americans tor whose conduct this Government will be in directly responsible through its guarantee that whenever Nicaragua deems its interference ne cessary to preserve the inviolability of the route (or, in other words, the peace of the isthmus,) tier power will be promptly directed to that end. A\ e believe that no transit company is men tioned in the treaty eo nomine, but that the route is thrown open to the use of the world, without governmental tax, duty, or cost, sub ject only to the fulfilment of any contract previously existing between Nicaragua and American citizens; the former to notify this liovernment of tbe obligations she considers herself as laying under. The notice will bo given to-day, we apprehend, in favor of the 'American Atlantic and Pacific Ship Canal Company," chartered in 1849 by Nicaragua ; the company being required in a given time to give notice of its acceptance of the terms of the convention so far as they bear on its franchises and future duties. Our further belief is that this treaty is, in all respects, 6uch a convention as Nicaragua mav, at any moment, form with any and all other Governments substituting their names for that of ours, to great advantge to herself, the United States and whatever other powers she mav please to treat with. The object of the comprehensive and truly patriotic statesmanship of President Buchanan and Secretary Cass in the arrangement of this important convention, has been to seek no ex clusive advantages for our own people, and, least of all. for any particular set of our own fellow citizens ; but rather to secure, past per adventure, the perpetual enjoyment of such privileges in conncction with this important route for the commerce and intercourse of our Pacific-side State and Territories with the civ ilized world, and also the enjoyment by the latter?the civilized world?of all the advanta ges to accrue from the existence of an Isthmus 'iranaii route at all times and under all circum stances free from the contingencies of Spanish American mutations, which up to this time have seriously embarrassed commerce directly or indirectly dependent for its success and profit on Spanish American Governments. We feel sure that in the consummation of this treaty all those known as - the Steamship Commodores ' have been non-snited, its terms having beey arranged to protect the public at large, rather than to further the interest* or speculations of any of them. Important fro* Utah ?The Government this morning received despatches confirmatory of the destruction of the provision train by the Mormons Also, a copy of a letter from Brig ham Young to the commander of the U. S. troops, sent through the hands of Brighaai's commanding General who was at Fort Bridger, near where the American commander was with all of his command except that immediately under Col. Johnson. Biigham assumes, in virtue of his autlcrty as the Governor of the Terr tory appointed by the President of the United States and not yet superseded, to order the withdrawal of the troops of the United States from the Territory, adding that if they cannot leava at this time owing to the state of the season, they will be permitted to remain until spring, on condition of giving up their arms, accoutrements, muni tions, Ac.! This is simply high treason?under the laws of the United States. Appoisted.?We hear, to-day, of the ap pointment of John F. Houston, Esq., to a third elass ($1,600 per annum) elerkship in the bu reau of the Second Comptroller of the Treasury. Alao, that Wm Linton, Eso , has been ap pointed to a first el*** ($1,200*) clerkship in tha office of the Third Auditor of the Treasury. Jcdoe Hemphill asp General Hexper 805. recently elected to the United States Sen ate by the Legislature of Texas?the former to suooeed the Teteran Houston on tbe expira tion of his present term, we take it, is a gentle man of the very highest reputation as a jurist. His age we believe to be about forty-six or for ty-eight. He has long been the Chief Justioe of the Supreme Court of the 6tate, in all which time he has ranked, for legal learning, elear neas of intellect, and high penonal character eeeond to no other jurist in all the Southwest ern States We are thus particular in describ '?g bim, because he is comparatively unknown ?o far North, His eolleague, General Henderson, is better known out of Texas He represented the Inde pendent Republic here ere its annexation to tbe L niUtd States took place, and is familiar to tbuu.Md.oltl,. public ?... of tbo North, But, Soath Wtct m a (tntl.uu., of to. tol.nU, are destined at once to take very decided rank among the leading minds of the Senate of the United State*. Our impression oi Judge Hemp hill i?, that ha will be found acting in immedi ate concert with the moat decided Souther? Rights me inhere of the body, while the identi fication of General Henderson with that politi cal aobool will probably be less distinot and defintto. Thk Alleoed Provisional Govershent in KansaI.?The telegraph yesterday brought news that the convention to frame a constitu tion for Kansas has established " a provisional government" with Gen. Calhoun (president of the body) at its head. This is all bosh; such action on its part would in point of its legality be on a par with the didoes cut by the never to-be-forgotten Topeka convention. Our im pression is that it means neither more nor less than that the convention has delegated to a committee, of which Gen. C. is the chairman, some duty in connection with the revision of the popular vote upon the adoption of the pro posed constitution, or a part or parts of it?or to make some preliminary arrangement to sub mit it to Congress or the bona fide inhabitants of the Territory. It is to be hoped that in whatever the convention may have done in the premises, it may not have overstepped its legal authority, and thus complicated the intermin able woof of difficulties in which the affairs of the Territory already stand. Tun Reti:rn or the PLTKorTB ?The U. S. ship Plymouth has arrived in the Potomac, from her summer's cruise on ordoanoe prac tice. She has visited England, Holland and Portugal. The practice with the heavy cannon has been very satisfactory, and the experience gained will be usefully employed when fitting the new steamers with their batteries. It is the general impression on board that wo have very little to learn in this country from Europe in regard to tbo manufacture and working of ordnance, especially in the manufacture. The Plymouth will go into winter quarters at the Washington Navy Yard, but will con tinue the practice with the view of turning out good captains of guns for the Navy generally. Thb following is the list of officers : Com mander, John A. Dahlgrcn; Lieutenants, C. Ap. R Jones, Geo. B. Balch, Samuel Edwards, Mi. A. Webb, 0. C. Badger, Win. T. Truxtun; Surgeon. J. I>.

Mr. Kirk's party reached City Rocks, the eastern terminus of his division, on the 6th of September. His expedition has been successful, and all hands had been well and in excellent spirits. Mr. Kirk reports that the Shoshonee (Snake) Indians have been very troublesome on the Humboldt river, and have committed many depredations. His engineer party was attacked by them on the 24th August, killing one horse and wounding three others. On their return, Mr. Kirk made a treaty with them, and trusts that it may prove beneficial. A full report of the operations of this party is expected by the next California mail. Naval Cocrts or Inquiry.?Before Court No. 1, to-day, in the case of ex-Passed Mid shipman Nathaniel T.

Before Court No. 3 to-day, in the oase of ex Capt. Levy, Commodore Perry was examined on the Government's behalf. The Massacre bv the Santa Clara In dians.?The mail reaching Washington, to day. from California brings a confirmation of the previously received report of the late mas sacre of about 100 emigrants on the plains, be tween Salt Lake city and Los Angeloa, by the above named tribe.

It says that it "is the largest structure of the kind now under roof in the world." Thecorner stone was laid by Hen ry Clay in 1819. The cost of the building will,it i? thought, reach four millions of dollars, and neurly all the costly material in this costly house has come from the'North?the granite and mar ble from New England, and the iron from Pitts, burg. An important matter in relation to the wo:k is thus alluded to by the Bee: The que*, tion now arises: Is the foundation of the building strong enough to sustain the immense weight that will press upon It when the building is sfor. ??d with merchandise? W h?*n the building is completed, its wight, by iUelf, will be twenty pounds to the square Inch?what will it be when the house shall he running over with the pro ducts of the four quarters of the globe? It has been calculated by the best civil engineers In this city that the soil of Louisiana should not sustain more than ten pounds to the square Inch. We are not surprised, therefore, to learn that the building has settled eighteen inches t>lnce the foundations were laid The Beesaya further that the settling Is not uni form, and that the top of the building ialready six Inches out of level.

No such revelation had been re ceived by him up October 5, ?mi which date acts were committed under his direction which cannot fail to end in bloodshed. On that day the two ragiments of infantry and the artillery and ordnance batteries were encamped on Ham's Fork, which branches from Black's Fork, which Is a fork of Oreen river. The two nearest sap ply trains were but a few miles distant from Green river, on the east batik, and about thirty miles from Col Alexander's camp. The next on the road had advanced about twenty miles west f-om Pacific Springs, which rise at a short dis tance beyond tlie South Pass. About 11 oYlock at night these three train* were surprised and seized by parties of Mormons, their contents ex amined, and what was worth pillaging was stolen and the remainder destroyed br fire. Each train consisted of 26 wagons, and belonged to the number sent oat by Messrs Russell A VVaddell, of Leavenworth City, contractors for the transportation of stores to the army and for the supply of beef cattle. The teamsters made no resistance,and were unharmed. These Mor mon bands are understood to be under the com mand of '? Bill'' Hickman, although it is ru mored that Heber C. Kimball attends them They are all well mounted and armed, each man being provided with a California horse, and with a rifi* and from one to three revolvers. Hickman is supposed to have directed the proceeding near Pacitic Spring, while a man named Locksmith commanded near Green river. Immediately upon the receipt of the news of this attack. Col. Alexander sent Capt. Marcy, of tke 5th Infantry, with five companies, back to Green river. He arrived, however, only in seasdn to take charge of the cattle of the trams, which the Mormons bad left, with the polite request that the tro*ps would fatten them over winter when they would be In good condition for Mor mon eating in the spring. Another of their Umz 1>PIU wa* a remark to the teamsters that they 'bad only burned the wagons this time, but would be likely to burn the wagoners the next " Colonel Alexander also sent despatches to Brevet Col Smith, from whose eamp I am writing, and Captain Marcy sent by another messenger * cir cular letter to the trains on the road, advisin" ,t,b?e.m> f?r. fhe sake of safety, to place themselves under Col Smith's protection. Both expressmen were intercepted by the Mormons: but as nothing suspicions was found on their persona, and it dia not appear on what errands they were bound, ttiey were released The one from Col. Alexan oer, perceiving that it was impossible to avoid arrest, destroyed the despatches to Co 1. Smith, according to his instructions, and we are iguorant their contents. The other brought Captain Marcy a circular safely through in the toe of his moccasin. ? we know, however, in the absence of the of ficial despatches, that Capt. Marcy has rejoined Colonel Alexander, and that the entire force has

moved to the north along Bear river toward* Soda Springs, where it will probably await the arrival of the remaining supply trains, the sut lers trains, of the 5th and 10th Infantry, and of Colonel Smith's battalions. The reasons for this moven ent do not appear by a glance at the map. to a persou unacquainted minutely with the con formation Of the gauntry and the character of the climate._ The aired road to Salt Lake City, passing Fort Bridger. Medicine Bntte. and The Needles, which Colonel Alexander has aban doned, is possibly by this time impassable to wagons or artillery 011 account of the weather I he season, which had been uncommonly favor able up to the beginning of October-has resumed its natural severity. Ice has formed in our buck eta every morning hut one since we left Fort Laramie The northern slopes of the mountains are completely whitened with a covering which will not melt till 1858. and even the Southern slopes aie jniwdered scantily with snow, of which there was a fall on Saturday night that chilled our road on Sunday and Monday and has mud died it to-day. The Mormons have probably burned the grass along the entire route, and obstructed the defiles in which it abounds. In snch a manner that onlv ? artillery could clear them But If the army con centrates at Soda Springs it will have before it a road along a valley open, it is said, even at mid winter, direct to Salt Lake City. 1 know of no chart which exhibits all tLe lines of road on which these movements will be made, and, in deed, I am unable to gather from our guides -ah Information as to trace them accurately 011 Capt. Sfansbury'B map, which is the largest chart of this country that 1 possess, but I believe them to be substantially these: The direct route from California to the States crosses the Wahsatch Mountains far to the north of Salt Lake City, and continues almost due east to its junction witli the main road to that ci'y, which passes Fort Bridger and then runs on through the South Pass, divid ing, however, near Ham's Fork, into three branches, which cross the Green River and unite beyond Big Sandy. From one or the other of or these branches a road leads up into Oregon toward Fort Hall, passing S<>da Springs, f.om winch, at the Springs, there is a cut-off into the road direct from Foit Hall, to Salt Lake City. It is over these latter roads and the cut oft'that Col Alexander's march will be directed. The Mormons who intercepted the expressmen told thein that they had a force of 7U0 men scat tered along through the mountains as far east as the Devil's Gate, through which the Sweetwater flows, aliout 200 miles from Fort Laramie, and nt'*r which is a dismantled Mormon mail station, and at a fire from some of whose logs we warmed our feet not a week ago. But this must be a gross exaggeration. Neither of the parties whi h burned the trains exceeded 100 iu number, and it is difficult to conceive how a force of even that strength could have gained the rear of the army unobserved. It is a fhet, however, that eve'r since th- Mormons settled on Salt Lake. th?-y have been assiduous in collecting inforuiati.-n con cerniug the topog anhy of the country, and many of their leaders understand it as thoioughly as 1 he most experienced mountain guide Th* rrn Eloyment or a great part of their vonng men iu |eiding cattle has made them acquainted with eveiy little stream and lanyo*, ana inured them to the saddlo. It is these yituug men, and these almost solely, who constitute the element of the Mormon military force frotn which tbene is dan ger to be apprehended. They possess the ability, it they have the will, to carry on an annoying guerrilla warfare, sweeping down f.om the niooiiUlii parses u{Oil single travelers and unpro tected trains. * I aru unable to make an estimate of the amount of stores destroyed by them in their foray of Oc tober 5. The original amount intended for the I tah expedition was an eight months supply for 2,500 men. and each train was assigned a propor tion of all the articles to be trauspoi te<l, including even ordnance stores Whether different arrange ments were made wh< n it was tho i^h' necessary to leave the 2d dragoons wl'b Gov Walker in Kansas, 1 am not aware. At any rate, it is the general impiessiou that tht? loss of so great a quantity of provisions as the 72 wagons must have contained, would nec.cs.*? tute a movement Howard 9.iIt Lake Valley, were not such a move ment on of her accounts a consequence of their de struction. The season will foroid the transmis sion of any further supplies or troops from the Hast than are now alieady far on their way. V\ hether Col. Sumner's command has returned from its pursuit of the Cheyenues to the Arkan sas ; whether Col. Cook is marching his dragoons tcwa ds us to fill out so far as is now possible the original programme of the army in I tah, which was distuilied by Gov. Walker's schemes in Kansas, or whether Gen. Harnev, Col Johnston, f?ov. Cumming, or any of the new territorial of fleers are on their way West, we ar* not in fortm d ; for the most recent advices we have re ceived from the Cast extend no later than to Sep tember Ignorant as we are of what may have occurred there during the lust forty days, it is impossible for us to fix the responsibility for the delay, so accurately es yourselves, upon thone on whom it belongs; but some or.e is ceitainly to blame for the fact that of the 2,500 men originally destined to the expedition, hardly 1,400 are now*available, and for the other fact that of all the uewly-ap tointed Territorial officials, only one, to my nowlcdge, (Chief Justice Kchols,) is anywhere near his post of duty.
