EVENING STAR WASHINGTON CITY: TUESDAY WflTfuikfr 94, 19IT. 8rIK1TO# THE MORNING Ptih&X. The Union shows that the pretence of oppo sition to the action of the Kaosaj Convention is really sympathy with the Topeka politicians of the Territory, open or disguised. The same journal publishes, with a brief complimentary introduction, a Louisiana letter, wasting the peculiar qualifications of Sena tor Slidell for th? mission to Paris. Probably no other American statesman is so thoroughly acquainted with the French character, and so well qaalitrad te protect the interests of our country and Government as involved in our relations with France as Mr. S., through his thirty years residence among a population of French extraction, and his long family connec tion with a French family. We are among those who believe that he will surely succeed the Hon. John Y. Mason, if but from the fact of his admitted superior qualifications for the position. The Intelligenctr rejoices over the intima tion of the London Timis, that there is nothing involved in what is known as the Central American question in which the English people feel peculiar interest.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The Abvt o.t the Plains.?We hare of Into been beaet with inquiries concerning the prospects of our gallant military friends now supposed to be just going into winter quarters in th? neighborhood of Fort Kridger, somn 150 'miles this side ot Salt Lake City. Theie in quiries come for the most part from individual friends of individual ofioen and men, who know well that the Star is at this time the newspaper of the country most looked to for eorreetncwsconccrning army movements, pros pect* and interest#, and that it numbers among its subscribers more men of all degrees in the service, from the generals in command of the different military departments, down to privates in the ranks, than any other journal. In reply to these queries we havu to say that there has been of late a remarkable dearth of detailed information frem the troops recently dispatched to Utah. That is, of information not official. And that all the latter proper to be published has been duly spread before the public. In the mean time we fiad in a late numberof the Journal o/ Commerct, the fol lowing interesting account of the particular region of country now occupied by those troops, from the perusal of which their friends may obtain a capital idea of their present position, condition and prospect for the winter. It is as fallows: 'i'HI CiMP-GROUSD OT THE L*TAH EXPEDITION. Years ago, when Fort Laramie was but a small French trading post. and before emigration across the Plains had fairly commenced, tfee old trappers and --mountain men" used frVquently to resort to the upland valleys of the Rocky Mount ains to winter. There, in the sheltered parks and filateaus, they not onl?* escaped the ba/reu and nclement regions of the Plains,l>nt were enabled to obtain a fair allowance of fresh meat by hunt ing the buffalo, deer, and other animals, which also resorted thither in the winter time to gain that subsistence' which they could not obtain u;>on the inhospitable prairie. One of the most favored of these locations was the " New Park," which receives the waters of the I,aramie, Medicine Bow and Sweetwater rivers", and near which also rises the North Fork of the Platte river. A little to the north of the New Park, and inclosed by the great bend of the I'latte, lies the broken tract of coun try known as the Larauiie Plains, which are bounded by the black llill* on the north, and on the south by the Medicine Bow mountains. This was also a favorite hunting ground. From the bend of the Platte, westward, extends an incon siderable range,sloping gradually until it reaches an elevated plain which forms a break in the Uocky Mountain chain, and alfords the easy pas sage known as the Gie&t or South Pass So grad ual is this ascent, that, were it not for the majes tic presence of the rugged peaks towering heav enward away to the right and the left, one would scarcely realize that he is standing upon the di viding ridge between the waters that flow In'o the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Still more in credible is the f.sct that he car. stand mar by and toss two sticks into two adjacent streams, one of which Hows eastward to tiie Gulf of Mexico, and the other in the opjiosite direction to the Gulf of California. Through this pass was the usual route of the mountain men to the beaver-abounding valleys of the Green and Bear rivets and the Uintah country; and many an Indian and superstitious old hunter has traversed, years a;^o, the well known path to the mystic Beer or Soda Springs, to smoke the propitiatory pi|?e, and invoke the fountain spirits to grant'him j;ood luck in the ? b se. The wagon trail to Oregon and California, and to the ^alt LaLe region, traverses all this hection of country, following the Sweetwater Valley through the Pa?s, over to the Big Sandy, across Green river to Fort Bu'dger. and thence to Salt Lake and beyond. This is the route of the Utah expedition; and some location between the moun tains and Fort Br.d<;er will be their camping ground for the winter, for it is not at ail probable, in the present hostile attitude of the .Mormons, that it will be able to force its way to Salt Lake citv until Spring. In this continget.cy, they will be far better off in the mountains than on the plains, lndefrd. no camp, however well-provis ioned and prote<-t*d, could survive the piercing blasts and terrible snow storms that sweep over the exposed and barren prairie, where betimes the hardy mountaineer, overtaken by the unex pected i;a!e, Las only saved himself from perish ing by killing his horse and crawling into the waiiii and smoking carcass which he had ojiened. Well provided as the expedition is with am munition and provisions, it will not suffer for sustenance, if unmolttttd ; though its experience of the rigo: s of a winter among the mountains will be anything but agreeable. A camping ground may be selecUd where both wood ana w..ter arc abundant; fiesh meid may be obtained by hunting; and even though the horses and muli-s may |>erisb for want of grain and fodder, the men may weather It through till spring. Ma g-aw's wagon train has aheudv camped for the winter, though at a considerable distance north of toe present position of the at my, on account of the grius having all been burned off to the South w:?:d The old experienced monuineers have se lected jiut such a lttcaiion for a camp as that in wiiirn fortune has placed theexpedition. }So, as h:i? been remarked, there need be little apprehen sion for th^i.' condition through the winter, pro vided they had no ft-ai of molestation from en emies Fruin the intelligence received up to date, it is probable that the expedition has pone into win ter quaricis ou the s-dd Spang trail?a route which has been much traveled of late by emi grants, lo avoid the moie direct r.iad through Mormundou* Tina position would Ik.- as safe as anv. though faiilier from S.-1 It Lake than Fori Bridger. which is only 113 miles distant. Still, it !* the belief of the best judge-, that th?-y will not pass tlin winter in moi.oton< si peace The country ha- long been fi*>jio nted by the warlike tr i ij*rs of L tabs, Sioux, Chev ones. Crows, iwul Snakes or Shosbuoes. who h.ive needed no in- I centive to their natural hatied of the white man, to induce them u> seek his blood; a'.J now that, as tllies of the Mormons, they are urged, com manded. paid, to hunt the white man s scalp ^except! 114: Saints,) they will not refrain from em bracing the present unusual and welcome oppor tunity .The wild Indian who has continually hovered"around the camp of the veteran trappe , se*-kin;: plunder, or his scalp, as a more desfreu prize, has ever been the object of the trapper's solicitude. His attention has J*-en divided be tween his traps aud circumventing the wiles of the red man. who, like a wolf, lories around his camp-Hie, follows him when he hunts, waylays him in his path, or sends an arrow to his breast while he sleeps; and notwithstanding his vigi lance, his bat k woods ciaft,aiid his bravery when assailed or surprised, many of these.veteran trap pers have "gone under" betimes, as the numer ous creek*, risers and mountains which bear their names in record of their fate, will testify. We say?when Mich is the fate of the hardy mountaineer, what can we expect for the greeb horns of the army when hemmed iu and harrass ed by the Indian*, of whom they know nothing, to say nothing of the Mormon lta<?kwoodsmc?i, who will undonbtcdly lose no opportunity to cut them off.' It is well 10 consider the perilous predicament in which the expedition will lie placed if com pelled to encamp in the mountain*, provided the Mormons use all the means in their power to harass them The winter, it is said, has set in with unusual severity: ail the grass that has not b?-en burned by the Mormons is covered with snow, and can "profit the animals but little ; re port says that fodder is almost exhausted, and that a lar^je nmnber of animals have already died. Their fl st great loss, therefore, will be their live stock ; ana the whole expedition will thus be put '? on foot " As to the men, it is not when iu the camp that they will be mo?t likely to be mo lested, though occasional attacks may in* m ule upon them. Neither Mo (uons nor Indians would readily venture to engage so large a body in fair light. But their great endeavor will be lltst to cut off and destroy all present supplies, and starve out the invaders. Their only resource will then be the wild game, which is said to be uuusually abundant this season; and it is when out on the huut far meat that they will afford a grand op]Mirtunity for the operations of the mountain rangers, who will hunt them while they hunt the wild l>easts ; will cut oil' the strag glers singly and byscyres; or perchance storm their camp when Its ranks are deranged, broken np, or diminished in num'iers They will only be safe when iut encbed in i amp, and theu star vation must result. It piofessional hunters are employed to providefor them, they also will fall under the ban of the Saints arid their allies All the Indians, however; are not hoetlle to the Expedition. Many of them have hitherto refused r 11 the overtures of the Mormons, and still remain friendly to the United States Govern ment. A chief of the Shoshones. who has nearly oik- thousand followers, has already avowed bis deteiinitiation lo stand by his Great Fattier at Washington, in the approaching war with the Mormons, which it Is Ivfleved must take plare. And in this we discern an ominous cloud in the horizon of (he future, porteuding a long, pio tracied struggle. Bntfhaiu young, by his proclamation, has p'berd him>elf in an kttitude of rebellion. The liiditn tr|b*x which he b?s allied to himself agalnst the United States, have been at war for y^ais with othe. tribes w"i< h declare their alle fiame to the P.cddent. The Mormon war thus nvolves an Indian war, which is likely to be corniuned long after Brigham and his followers Shall have been punished or driven from the country. In these conclusions are Involved 1 in pouut considerations, which demand most de c sive and ^eryetic movements on the pnrt of tl?e Administration?to be put into operation im mediately on the opening of Spring. Gov ^ o?ag has ui doubted y entertained the h?|ie that, by punning bis peculiar policy, he tonld bliud the eyes of Government, and thus ratain bis position In Utah, and preserve bis colony ar.d bis creed from outside interference But when, by treasonable acts and murage* ho found that he had at teugth aroused the indigna tion ?f the Government, and was likely to brins/ down lust puuishment upon himself, hechanzed front, hoping by a defiant bearing, to bully the Government into acquiescence with bis views P anf' or ** lttut lo Pl,t ?ff ?? open conflir t to the last moment. At length, perceiving that WalT'Vt ill i ,P%aW?fUll)r' ?-r ^ driVe" to th? wall at the point of the bayonet, be has d<-ter " J"?, Vtah' to ,e*v* ? bloody stain bt hind bun. Still hopeful of success, bowtve by carrying oat his policy of intlm dation. he proclaim* martial law in the Territory?Siev ing that if be can keep the nrmv out of ?alt l.ake until spring, the Administration may tfacu repent of Its determination; but if the army shall at t-mptto force its way to the city, be will then use all his powers to exterminate It. Whattver may bathe correct view of the case, it becomes the Government to prepare at once to send out a sufficient additional force as soon as practicable; and also to consider well what des cription of troops should be employed As the enemy 1< composed of both whites and Indians, the force to oppose them should be such as to m?et their different modes of fighting Nat only i < a large increase of troops nccessary to meet the Mormon forces, but companies of Hangers, sharp shooters, and backwoodsmwi and mountaineers, should l>e brought Into service to engage the In dians in their peculiar mode of warfare. With such a force the campaign would be a short one J and not only will the Mormon blot be wiped out* but the Indian tribes which have long imperiled our western emigration will he summariirchaa tised Into good behavior. Thk Kansas Co.tgTiicTiox.?Tha enemies of the Democracy are chuckling over the oppo sition to the action of the Kansas Convention upon the constitution they have just framed, manifested by more or less Northern journals claiming affiliation with the Democratic party organization. To our mind, they reckon with out their host; nine-tenths of them have aim ply been led into an erroneous position by giving crcdence to the partizan reports of the action of the Convention in question, sent East by the Republican-party telegraphing corres pondents of the Associated Press, and to the letters from Kansas published in such papers af tho New York Tribune. They will come right as soon as they learn the truth concern ing what the Convention has actually done. A few of them, however, conductcd by men notoriously disappointed about office or other favors from the present Administration, may be expected to labor zealously in connection with this theme to prevent Democratic harmony in Congress. Thus, they seek to obtain revenge for their personal grievances. The quicker they hoist the Republican-party colors the bet ter ; for their presont attitude of but quasi hos- j tility to the Democracy is but a flimsy covering for their design to join the enemy openly, as ?won .as they can make advantageous terms with them. Our policy would be to drive such persons over to thein, bag and baggage, with as little delay as possible. There?in the enemy's runks ?they can do no material injury to the Demo cratic cause; while, nominally with us, if they be suffered to do th* enemy's skirmishing against the Democracy, tLcy may, in the end, do us infinite mischief. We arc for no terms whatever with nominal Democratic newspapers published out of the Territory, which, with all the facts of tho ac tion of the Kansas Convention truthfully before them, continue to insist upon the interfering with the determination of that body, to whom alone is delegated the duty of determining how the questions involved in their action shall bo disposed of. Such conduct on their part is directly in the teeth of the principle of the Kansas-Nebraska act; and he who indulges in it is the supporter of that principle only in so far as it may promise to further his own views. 1 nit Exai.vicn Corps or tub United Statks Navy ?Subjoined is the list of the candidates for promotion and admission into the Engineer Corps of the Navy, who passed satisfactory ex aminations before the board of engineers con vened at the United States Navy Yard at Phil adelphia on the 5th instant.

W e hear of six others about to go into similar training. By the 1st proximo many believe there will be well nigh a candidate for each Congressional jockey, (House member,) as it seems to be getting fashionable for euch one of them to have his man for the post. Of those already named, we have to say that they are, in the aggregate, liko " Jeremiah's figs, the good being very good?the bad too bad to give the pigs. It is to be presumed that by the first Monday of Docembcr wo shall have a col umn of the usual announcements that A, B aud C are ' in the ring'' for the offico. The best of the joko is, that nearly all of them are making strong calculations on being elected! bo the world wags. Tub Missiom Tp Ntca*abca.?The telegraph tells us that the Hon. M. B. Lamar, of Texas, is likely to be sent as Minister Resident to N icaragua. We apprehend this rumor to be an erroneous one. Gen. Lamar already holds the commission of Minister Resident from the I nited States to Buenos A) res, a muoh more desirable position. Besides, though a gentle man of high personal character, there are few in the land of wider spread reputation for long and consistent sympathy with the doctrinal upon which ail attempts at the justification of filibustering are based. Under such circum stances, it strikes us that entertaining tho views eoncerning filibustering which the President is so well known to entertain, it is hardly possible that he would seieot Gen. L. for the mission to Nicaragua at this time. Faoit Wiscoxsijt.? ? , MK!?AtHA, Wla., Nov. 19, 1857. Our State election la clone.

setting strongly up stream. Three tug-boats were in attendance to haul her head oat in the stream?the (). M Pettit and the George and Edwin Birkbeck; and her immense size was well shown by their perfect inability to control her movement*. As she left the pW, the tide swept her nearly half a mile up the North river, the powerbf their boats combined being perfectly unable to stem its force. There was some blundering as she left the pier. The William H. Webb crossed her bow. forcing the Adriatic to bark, and carrying her against the stem of the Atlantic, lying at the end of the pier. One of the Francis's life boats of the Adriatic was stove in and rendered useless. The three steamtugs left her in the middle of the river, as soon a* her bead was well pointed down stream, and she commenced her tirst voyage running slowly, not making at first more than eight or ten revolutions, so as to be able to avoid the sailing vessels in the river, a* she went down the bay her speed Increased to probably fifteen or seventeen knots through the water, tbe wind and tide both setting strongly against her. re ducing her actual speed perhaps four or five krints. The fastest steamer in the bay?the Wm. H. Webb?was in attendance to try their respective speed At first sue gained on her some half a mile; but as the engines of the Adriatic were worked up to an approximation of their full power, this dividing distance was gradually re duced to nothing, and as the two vessels were lost to sight the Webb was barely holding her own. The Adriatic takes out thirty-eight pas?enger* and tiOO.OOO in specie. Hercrew, Including offi cers and men, numbers one hundred and eighty eight. Thr Wav it was lbt*E.?

Their eves should have been upon her up to the time that she cast oil from the Levee at two o'clock Wednesday morning, and they might have ob served a remarkable and altogether unaccount able increase of the number of her companv. They would have noticed among them the artil lery and medical staff* of the Nicaraguan army, for they left the Levee on the steamer Fashion at two o'clock on Wednesday morning, under th?* very sharp eyes of the custom-house and tills re porter, who thought lie wouldn't tell custom house al>out it, but left it to them to find out.
