EVENING STAR.

The law appointing tha commission to prepare this work, required that " the said Code be reported to CoAgreis on or befora the first Monday in December, 1857.'" This ia a mere directory clause, and even if not com plied with, would in no manner impair the power of Congress to adopt the Code as a whole, or any part of it. It is totally immaterial whether the rote of the people is taken upon it before or after the 1st of December. The tunc when that vote is to be taken is entirely imma terial. It would be competent for Congress, if it saw fit, to ndopt the Code, even though it might be rejected by the people. Besides, the before quoted provision of the law can be liter ally complied with by having the Code reported to Congress on the first Monday of December next, reserving a vote by the people on some future day, to be selected by the President. We learn that the Code has been in the hand* of the printer since early in September, and that greater delay has taken place in its printing than was anticipated The whole control over the matter resides in Congress, and it is entirely competent for them to adopt or reject it, no matter when the vote of the people it taken. The force and efficacy of the law do not depend, as has been errone ously supposed, upon tbe proviso before quoted, but upon the action of the people and Congress, no matter when that action takes place. The time, as before stated, is entirely immaterial. We presume the President will fix upon some time after tho distribution of the Code, when tbe sense of the people will be taken upon its adoption From what we have seen of tbe Code we are persuaded that It shows the most decided evi dence of great labor and study upon the part of its framers. We shall rccur frequently to this subject in our columns between this and the time which may be selected by the Presi dent for a vote upon it. It is a.mcasure of vast moment to the people of this District, and we dcubt not that sufficient time will be given for a due consideration of all tho subjects treated of, in the Code We commend it to the serious, caudid and enlightened judgment of our people. We doubt not they will find much in it to in terest and iustruct them. We are glad that the eodifiers have not done the thing by halves. In the entire repeal of all British and Mary land statutes, and the incorporation in the Cole of such as are proper and needful, they have furnished to almost every one the means of easily finding out what is the law, if the re sult of their labors be approved. The JoiixpcN-Cor.vTr Ketcrss Qcestiox. The following letter is from the pen of a gentle man who accompanied Gcvcrnor Walker to Ox ford county on the trip he is alleged to have made to ascertain whether the alleged returns from the Oxford precinct were or were not fraudulent. We publish his communication us being likely to shed light upon that affair, which appear3 likely to become a sulject of no little interest beiore Congress : W ashisoto* , Nov. 17,1S57. Editor of the Sfar : I we. in your issue of the 14tb, a letter copied from a Mobile paper, to which you refer a* denying that frauds were practiced at tbe recent election, in Johnson coun ty. Kansas. A* my name appear* in the letter, and as 1 am cognizant of the facta, permit me to conect some of the statements Let me tir?t say that Governor Walker does not charge fauds in Johnson county, except at the Oxford precinct, from which place there was sent iu a paper (not a return) declaring that sixteen hundred votes h?d been cast in that precinct; nearly twioe as m iny a? could possiblv have been taken, by tbe riii rore system. In the time al lowed by law. which is two days-nine hours each day Governor Walker and Secretary Stanton went from Lecoinp'oii by way of Lawrence, it b^ing the main sta^e route to Johnson county They staid in Lawrence just long enough to 'have the carriage mules driven to tb**~ liver for water; they met Kat>cockand otherseight miles beyond Law rence, returning from Johnson county, where they had gone to gather evidence?Habcock hav ing been a Republican candidate for Councilman. Tb?-se men told what they had seen and heard, bu? none of them were taken as guides I'pon the arrival of the Governor and Secretary at Oxford, the roll was sp ead out for th?* inspec tion of the people, and beyond the tlrst JvfU no one could find a name which belonged to any resident of tb?- neighborhood or elsewhere. The people of the towu hooted at the idea of such a vote hav ing been cast, and said that not one-fourth that number of men had been on the town site since its location. After leaving Oxford the_Oovcrnor and ?ecre ta'y "-peat the night at Siiawnee. the county scat, and tne next day visited two other towns in the ci unty, and talked fieelv with me people, most of wiioin a^e pro-slavery men; and all agreed that it was a most outrageous fraud, and that it wsiinpiv ridiculous entertain for a moment tne idea that one-fourth that number of votes we'f cast. L'u ing this trip they crossed the countv twice, by d.3>-ient route*, and there were fiequent stretches of several miles over the prairie with out a At?at' in ?ijj'tf It is true that there a.e eigat towns in the county, but. like many ?' Kar. san towns," they do not average mm- than a d? x^n houses each, and ea? h one of these which is an election precinct, except Oxf >rd. gave a rea sonable vote in arcoidance with the appaient population, (f om 50 to iiist votes ) >ir.oe that time I have spent three weeks In the Territory, traveling from pla< e to place, talked freely with tvery pro-slavery man 1 met. and I have yet to hear the first man say that lie believed that 'here were half of l.OUO v^ies cant at Oxford I reclnct Men have said to me that the return should have been received on legal grounds, while at the \nmc time they said there fas no doubt that it ?rax a fraud. Of cotme, I am not qualified to discuss tbe legal question; but the public know that Mr. Walker is ?eldom wrong on points of law. In view of the facts above re cited, is It strange that Mr Stanton would rather lose his right aim xather than use it to sauction such enormity There is no exci'ement In Kaunas ngninst Gov ernor Walker and Secretary Mati'on On the contrary, Jieiuocn'tic meetings are being holdeu endorsing their course, iu which pio-slavery men take the lead; and the only persons who oppose them are those who were engaged In the fraud, or who were to l#neflt by it, and their im mediate friends. The indignation meeting of twentv-five could n;it get their proceedings pub lished by any pa|>er in the Territory, and they Wi-re first p inted at the office of "The 5'tar of Km pi re,'' published at Weatport. Missouri, of whtch ant of tie judge* of election at Oxford is assi stunt editor. The rumor which also appears in your paper, " tbat Governor Walker, in conjunction with George N. Sanders, had purchased several hun dred acres of the Fort Leavenworth military resei vation at a nominal figure,'1 is wholly with out foundation, and was contradicted in Leaven worth the day after it started Mr Walker does not own an interest iu a dollars' worth of real e? tate in Kansas.

At thesame time the p.isouer was sticking the otltcer in va rious places about the body, but so sharp was the knife that he did not feel the elJects of the stabs. On discovering his wounds he heat Mc Quaid, who was trying to get away, with bis rattle until it was broken, and then used his bil ly, until he sunk to the ground from the loss of blood McQuaid then made his escape. The officer was picked up shortly by a fellow officer and conveycd to the Station House, where an ex amination of his person was made. His throat was cut in the right side until the windpipe was exposed, and his hand wounded in such a man ner that his fingers had to lie supported by a board The wounds of Mr. Campbell are of such a nature that death will probably ensue. McQuaid, who was known to the officers, was arresb-d a short time afterwards at his residence, while in bed. Tiik Hard Times anu the 1I<>hsjc Market ?

From Boston he went to Philadelphia He hsd property and lived comfortably. He was a ?plr itualist. and to that cause possibly may lie traced his untimely end. Late from Neilrs. By the latest accounts from the city of Mexico (being to the 5tti Inst .) we learn that the political guarantees of the new Constitution of that Re public have been suspended, and that President Comonfort Is again clothed with dictatorial Kwers, but on what precise terms, and for what igth of time, was not known at the date men tioned. The ti'st vote, which was taken on the 30th in secret iwsaion, was on the general propo sition. and stood '2 to 31. The terms of the dle tatorthip were to come up for consideration the next day, the 31st, when an attempt was made to have the discussion public, but this was voted down. It was not known, therefore, whether the demands of the Executive were granted in whole or In part, though from a dispatch re ceived at Vera Crux it would seem that nothing had t>een settled. A '?pronunciamento" broke out at Queretaronn the'2d inst.. and a desperate fire continued for eleven hours Finally the Government troops were overpowered, and the city taken by the rev

olutionist*. The latest express from the South brought the startling intelligence that the Government forces, which fo recently entered Cu?*rnavaca in triumph, had been completely routed near that place, and the revolutionists left in complete possession Rumors of another Santa Anna expedition on the coast were again in circulation, but nothing seem* to have been knc.wn It was believed, al so, that the old chieftain was at the bottom of the revolution in Yucatan. The Mexican Extraordinary says : " The position of the Government at this mo ment 1? truly critical. No one can gainsay this. We have always said that a legislative form of government was not the thing. " Where the sum of general Ignorance is so great the Government must be powerful and silent, and the critical position in which the ??<>verninent finds itself i? entireiy owing to the delay and inaction always consequent upon a discussion." Tiik Reported Massacre or Kxoi.nn a>d American* at Xixoro?How thk Mistakk Orioisated.?We find the following somewhat startling paragraph in our California exchanges, received by the St. Louis: " The Alexander left Manilla on the 16th Au gust. a few days prior to which date a brig had arriv< d, af'er a Ave days ptissage, from Ainoy. A priva'e lr-tter by her was received from Manilla, giving an account of the horrible massacre, by tue Chinese, of all the American and English residents of Ningjio. one of the five open ports lying between Amoy and Shanghai. Our infor mant cnuld furnish us with no further details, but assured us that the news is beyond all ques tion relia'oie. The number of Americans and English at that port was estimated at forty, all of whom the Captain believes to have been mur dered " This is altogether incorrect and without foun dation. The mistake probably arose from the fact that in the month of June last, a naval battle was longht off Ningpo between the Cantonese and Portuguese pirates, and that the latter were driven ashore and indiscriminately massacred. inr Our readers will recollect that some time ago the Kev. T J Simpson, of Pittsburg, while on his way to a meeting of the presbytery of his c hu'ch, ruined a young girl who had been placed under his protection as a traveling companion. He was tried and dismissed Tom his charge, his guilt having been made apparent beyond a doubt We now learn from the Louisville Cou rier that this reverend seducer is making strenu ous exertion* to be reinstated. Last week the Allegheny presbytery of the Cumberland Pres byterian Church'met, when three petitions were presented, asking that he might a^ain be ad mltted to the functions of the ministry. One was from the Missionary Society ; and the second from the I.udus' Sfiring Socitty attached to his former congregation ; the third was signed by about thirty members of the church. The pres bytery unanimously declined to oblige the ?? Mis sionary and Sewing Societies'' by teinstating him. ry-Tf^THK ANNUAL ELECTION for officers L of the Union Building Association trill he li?'id at th?
