EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNESDAY.. Xorembfr *23, 1MT, sruuror the MottrtiMG phess The Vmton announces officially the prasent atioa to the President, yesterday, of Senor Don Napoleon E.valante and Senor Don L.uis Moli na, Envoys Extraordinary and Minister* Plen ipotentiary from tie Republic of Costa Rica to the Government of the Unrttd State#. The Union also compliment* the New York Tribunt upon the boldness with which it states its positions, and use* it to brush away the cobwebs of quibbles against the action of the late Kansas Convention, which a few disaffect ed Democratic journals hare woven, saying, with convincing force: Some of our Democratic cotemporaries seem to har* k?rome befogged in trying to And out why the late Kansas convention failed to submit their entire work to the judgment of the people of Kansas. The Tribune clears away the fog, and given a conclusive answer. It ?aya: "The men wbo got up this bogus constitution knew perfectly well that the people of Kansas scouted their pretence of antbority to frame a constitution for them, and would vo<e down that which they have made, if allowed to do so; so they .will not let them vote on it at all! Does any man believe that they would have shackled the people in this way if tbev had not absolutely known that the peop!e'would reject their constitution if they were allowed a chance to do so?" Here we have the whole sukv told and the whole mysery explained. "The men who got up this bogus constitution," Ac.?that is to say, the Tribune regards the late convention as an il legal and unauthorized body of men, who had no right to make any sort of constitution Hence it denounces the constitution as a bogus affair, and so it would have denounced any constitution that the convention might have nmd? but the Tri bune proceeds to add that the members of the convention knew that the people of Kansas (mean ing thereby the advocates nf the Topeka consti tution) mouted their pretence of authority to frame a constitution for them, and that the mem bers of the convention kn walso that the Topeka altolitkMiists would vote down the constitution made. If the convention knew these things, it would have been woise than a farce to submit th*-constitution for the mere purpose of having it voted down?u??t vo^ed down, In- it observed, because its provision* w<e not good. but be cause it Wa?, in their estimation, a Ihvjus aflair, gotter np by ni-*n unauthorized to make any con stitution The convention knew that they were acting in pursuance of the legal authority of the Territory, and that it wa? their duty to inake a constitution : but if they knew, too, th;it there was a factious opposition to the convention which would cause the rejection of their work, however well done, they were excusable for refusing to yieid to that factions spirit. They did enough when they agreed to submit the only part of their work about which the popular mind was agitated and divided. We think., tineiefo e, the Tribune fur nish*;* a conclusive answer to the objection that the convention failed to submit anv other than the slavery clause cf the constitution to the sacri fice of the Topeka factionfsts The InMhgenrtr also Jiscusscs the action of the Kansas convention, insisting that the failure to submit the whole constitution to the people of the Territory, was wrong undor any combination or complication of circumstances whatever. That journal olao quotes various Northern Democratic journals against that ac tion, half of which have admitted, in articles published subsequent to those quoted to-day by our respected friends, have changed their positions on the subject, the later information received by them having opened their eyes to the fact that their original views in the premi ses were based on tbe usual bogus intelligence from Kansas furnished by Republican party writers fl r The Canadian ministry have all resigned, and the Hon. John McDonald is charged with the duty of forming a new one. fi~^ From J. tihilllngton, Odeoa Building, We have Frank Leslie's New Family Magazine, for December* with its usual variety of illustra ted matter.

Governor Walker.?We learn that Gov ernor Robert J. Walker ia looked for positively to reach this city by the train from the Weat to arrive this afternoon. * * -- Tuanksgiving Dat ?TtHnorro# being the day set apart by our Municipal Councils for a general Thank sgivjog, to enable our little army of assistants and eflifuoyeee to participate in its i religious services and sobsequont festivities, the issue of the Star will be suspended for the day. ? The various Government offices in this city, we learn, will also remain closed throughout the day. according to eustom. Tns District Code .?We have heard it al. leged in various quarters thnt the Revised Coda revives imprisonment for debt. This is simply sheer nonsense. The report has been gotten up to humbug and bambooxle such per sons as have not read the provisions of the Code. In this respect the Codo speaks for itself, and we invite the unprejudiced judg ment of onr readers to an examination of the subject. After a careful reading of the pro visions relating to this subjeot, we Cnd the whole matter to be as follows : In no case is any person held to bail before judgment. Even if a debt be fraudulently con tracted, the party making it cannot be held to bail. In this respect the Code is far more len ient than nineteen-twentieths of the laws 4t the various State* of the Union. We think we are safe in stating that a very largo majority of the States allow a party to be held to bail (and of courso imprisoned for want of bail) in cases of fraud, even before judgment. This the Code does not do. It requires in every case that a party should establish the justice of his claim by prosecuting it to judg ment. No arrest of any kind, and no holding to bail before judgment, is allowed in any case. When, however, a judgment is obtained, an execution against the property of the judgment debtor is allowed to be issued. If upon this execution, a return of no goods be made, ihe judgment creditor is not even then allowed to issue an execution against the body of the debtor. If, however, the facts of the case support him, he is allowed to file an affidavit, charging the debter with '?fraudulently concealing, remov ing. conveying, or transferring his property subject to execution, with intent to defraud and delay the plaintiff, or charging that tho debtor has money, rights, credits or effects, with which the judgment, or some part thereof, might be paid, and which he fraudulently withholds or conceals, with a vittr to delay or defraud the creditor." If this oath is taken wantonly, or is cot eupported ly probable cause, it is perjury, and therefore will not be apt to be taken except for good reason. But this affidavit even, will not imprison the debtor The Clerk is required by the provisions of the Lu lo to - issue a notice requiring the debtor to appear at the vert term of tf,t eottrt and show why execution should not issue against him. When the debtor appears, or even if he does not appear, the matters charged in the aCidavit are tried before a jury, and the ques tion Is submitted to that jury whether the party has committed the fraud charged in the affi davit. In other words, a jury is to determine whe ther the debtor has fraudulently concealed, rsmoved. Ao . his property vtth intent to de fraud the creditor. If tho jury find that the debtor has fraudulently concealed, removed. Ac his property, with intent to defraud the creator, even then there is no imprisonment if the debtor will deliver up the property which the jury has found he has fraudulently con cjaled, removed. Ac. If be will not deliver it up hi is then )>unished for the fraud by im prisonment. And so he ought to be. If twelve men. whom he has the privilege of challenging, say he has committed a fraud, and which fraud he has the power to rectify, if he refuses to rec tify it. every honest mind will say he ought to be punished. The jury is required by the pro visions of the Code to find even something than that the debtor has committed a fraud. They are obliged to j-etnrn in their verdict tlu particular and specific property which the debtor has ooncoaJed, itmoved. Ac., fraudulently 'ihat is required in order to ? n.'iblo the deb lor to dischargo himsolf by de livering it up. W e have thus gone over the eutire law relat ing to this matter. \\ e have duno to with great particularity. Any person who has a copy of the C?*le, can, by refertnoe to pages ? 91 and 39U, see whether wc havo quotod the law correctly or not. i'or tho benefit of such as do not have f oopy of ihe Code, we quote all the law relating to that subjcct, as follows: S?-c. S2 Before any execution J>ball he issued upon any judgment against the hod v of the exe rtion debtor, the plaintiff shall file witb the cl*:|i an affidavit,charnirig the debtor with fraud ulently concealing, removing, conveying,or trans ferring his propeity subject to execution, witb intent to defiaud and delay theplaintitt,or charm ing that tbe debtor has money, right*, credits,or eflVcts. with which tbe judgment, or some part ihereof, might be paid, and which be fraudu lently withholds, or conceals, with a view to de lay or defraud the creditor. Sec. 53. The affidavit need not designate ape cltically any property, moneys, or ettects, fraud uiently removed, traunferrwl, concealed, convey* ed, or withheld by the debtor, but the fury or cou"t, in determining the matters in 1s?ue be tween the parties, If the finding ?e for the cred itor, sball designate, in the finding, the moneys effects, propeity, debt or things in action subject to ?xecutioii, which have been thus removed, concealed, transferred, conveyed, or withheld! and th?* value thereof Sec 51. I'pon the filing of the affidavit, the clerk shall I??ue a notice m;u|iipg the debtor to appear at the next term of tLe and "Imyr cause why such execution should nwt |MU? .igainst him After ten days' notice, or after the return of two notices of "net found," the court shall hear and determine the matters and things contained in the affidavit Sec 55 It the debtor sball fail to appear and show cause, the court may hear and determine 'be same in the absence of the debtor or a iiiry for that purpose may be einpanueled," if desired by 'he creditor. Sec 56 If the debtor appear, and plead to the affidavit any sufficient matter to bar the issuing of tbe execution, and an Issue he taken thereon the sams may l>c tried by the court, or a jury, as in other cases. Sec. 57. 11 the issue ho determined against the debtor. the court, unlet* good cause he shown, *hall forthwith order an execution agaiust hi* body, subject to the rules and restrictions of the two next succeeding sections Sec & If the debtor shall surrender such mo neys. effect*, piupi'ily or things in action, to (be u>e and for ihe lame/ft of the creditor, or pay tbc vj|>ic thereof, ns found by the court or jury, no hlt'uidv" "lla11 ^ lhdt Cnilh? ^ .s^.^J.f,tL??I'bU,r fail t0 surrender or pay, | rovidcd in the preceding section, upon the si ill. xi ,l"ay "l""1 ""jodfnwnt.

F There are corresponding provisions with ref erence to actions before Justices of the Peace Now, in all candor and honesty we ask. la there aay man who intends to do right, whether he 1>? rich or poor, with means or without means, who can object to this? If there be such ?t '>ne, then he intends to protect fraud, to give immunity to cheating, to license rascality, and uphold wrong. Ilow do these provisions in. diet any wrong, iu any possible case, upon any poor man without means? It is only a pro ceeding to gut at property fraudulently cow cealcd or removed or conveyed^ It a P>SP has u-j property, a jury ^ certainly not going to find that he has fraudulently concealed or re moved bis property. These provisions are in tended to roach, and ought to reaeh. fraud Olent individuals who prey upon honest men who "clothe themselvea in purple and fine linen, and fare sumptuously every day," and yet pay nobody?not even the honest trades man or laborer whose little ones may be suffer ing near hia doo*. There are such, and,we are afraid, a good aaany such, in every community |We wish even thai the law was sterner ura? them than it ia We look upon it as a self-evident proposition, that if a man baa the means to pay his debti, he ought to be mado to pay them. The Code does nothing more (ban this. The imprison ment of a man who aannot pay his debts, is utterly abhorrent to us. Thero is nothing in tha Code which allows this. So far from it, it i? exceedingly liberal, nay. almost generous. For proof of this, we refer such of our readers aj have a copy of the Code to pages 269 and 270 for the personal property exemption, and to pages 26T and 268 for the real estate exemp tion. Those exemptions are, perhaps. lib eral as those of any State or Territory in this I nion. The property, real and personal, in cluded in these exemptions, cannot be taken under execution in any possible or conceivable cases. It goes even beyond our present law, for that does not exempt any real estate from execution. W e have been thus foil in our oommenta upon this matter, bee a use we have no taste for the manner in which certain opponents of the Code are oombatting it. We like fair, open, manly oriteiaia. We do not mean to say that every minor provision in the Code is such as it ought to be. It would be miraculous almost if every provision in it would meet the approval of any ono man. l'or h ips no Code that was ever issued was so for tunate. The matter is to he viewed in a prac tical sense. Is not this Code immeasurably in advance of the system of luws we now have? Of that we have no doubt, and wo believe the great mass of our people so think. CitiME.?An cpidemic of crime is sweeping over the cities of the Atlantic coast, nffocting them all, from Boston to Washington, (iod knows we have had enough of it here. We really see little hope for a change for the better in this section, so long aa men claiming to be respectable citizens in our midst, think of rowdy ruffians as partizans?-aa Democrats and American party men. So long they pay a pre tnium on just such conduct aa disgraced the Federal Motropolia on Saturday last. All ahould set their faces againat euoh murderous villains, on both sides, as broke the peace of our city on that day and night, joining to aid in bringing them to condign punishment, with out the slightest regard to their political pre tensions. 1o fay that this community chafes beyond description under the exTstence of such ruffians among us, docs not properly explain the condition of public opinion horo with refer ence to their presence in the Federal Metropo lis We aro no bclievor in the impossibility of promptly ridding Washington of them, or facing them, if remainiug here, where they can only lay violent hands on themselves. With reference to the particular riots and murder of Saturday afternoon and night last, we have to express the Washington publics thanks to the Auxiliary Guard aud Police, from the Magistrates down, for the efficient and effective manner in which they have so far discharged their duty of ferreting out the dia tfrbers of the pea?o and holding them to a just responsibility, as far aa our deficient laws will permit at this time. The idea of the police magistrates being fearful of infringing on the rights of innocent parties in securing persons susjtected of identi fication with the rioters* if indulged in, ia one which will make them practically aiders and abettors in the erimes, after their commission. Byway of showing that we of Waahington aro not the only aufferera under the infliction of the presence of such murderous scoundrels, we quote as follows from the New York Ex press of Saturday last: Aisnstrwo hmtciiop C*tm*.???

These protests were probably sent to the State De partment syrae time since?before Walker suo oocdod in eluding the vigilance of the federal authorities at New Orleans and Mobile. e "? 1 ?

The melancholy intelligence of the loss of the ill-fated Central America, which clothed the nation in mourning has ncarcely goue the rounds of the Press, when we are called upon to record the destruction, close to our own coast, (say* the N.O. Delta, Nov. 1it) of the New Orleans and Galveston steamer Opelousas, of the Vaaderbilt line, and the lose of eighteen of her passengers, by coming into collision with the steamer Gal veston, of the Southern .Steamship liae, near Menteau Point, about midnight on the night of the 15th instant. Among the lost we observe the name of General Hamilton, of South Carolina. XAKllATIVE or K SURVIVOR '** I was a passenger on the Opelousas, Captain Kills, bound from Berwlcks Bay to Galveston On the night of the 15th. atnjut a quarter past 1*2 o'clock. I was awaken< d in my berth by a shock, as if the vessel was struck by lightning. I rushed on deck and found it crowded with pas sengers, all in the wildest state of excitement the ladies screaming and the gentlemen turning to and fro. The first consciousness 1 had of dan ger was hearing the mate and steward calling ou the passengers to save themselves, as there were two life-pi estovers in each stateroom I hastily made for the cabia to get a life-preserver, but on reaching it found the water in it ankle deep. 1 hastily retraced uiv steps, and on reaching the deck agnin found tne steamer sunk to her gun wales The passenger* then ran to the hurricane deck, but in about three minutes she had sunk to that deck. The scene of wild confusion and dismay which then presented Itself beggars all description. The Ufe-l?oat was cot away and some fifteen or twenty jumped into her, and others jumped into one of the quarter boats, when both boats started for the Galveston, then some distance from the wreck. (At this time I did not s*e the Galveston, and was totally uncon scious of the cause of the disaster ) The lifeboat before reaching Galveston was capsiied aial several of the pa?senge?rs sunk to ri?enoraor? I held on to the stern #f the Ope lousas. and while in that position was joined by the second engineer. This officer had secured a plank, which enabled him to shove ofl from the wreck I did not do so, believing the Opelousas was aground. In a few moments, however, the Opelousas, from the weight I suppose c.f her ma chine y, broke in twoand turned bottom upward. Seeing the Galveston in the distance I struck out for her, and after swimming, I think, about a quarter of a mile, was picked up by one of the Galveston's boats Captain Ellis, who was cling ing to a pi rogue bottom, was also picked up a | thf same time The first engineer, hi* wife, a man whose name I do not recollect, two neg ^ boys and some others, I believe, clung h> 'a portion of the wreck after she turned bolt upward until daylight, wheu thev were pic *rd up. A Mexican, name not known,'who bad res cued a liltle boy, was also fonnd next inon jln? holding on to a log, and himself and the bo rare among the saved '? The mate of the steamer Jasper, McFa rlane. running to .Sabine Pass, was one of the p s?*en. gers of the Op?*lou*a?. and was rescued. He af terwards left the Galveston to endeavor to save some of the other passengers, and periohf d in the attempt. From all the information I could obta;.n, In the confused state of aflVUrs, nfter I was sav ed. it ap {?ears that both boats being under lull headway the Galveston struck the Opelousas oi i the star board side, a little forward of the w heelbousa. catting her nearly in two and smashi ng her ma chinery so that the steam from her (toilers soon tilled the cabin, rendering ft impossible to dis tinguish objects distinctly. The Ga!ve?ton stayed by the wrec fc dttrio" the night, and her officer* and men nse<l every exer tion to save those filiating in the wa ter. Gj" The "solid men" of Boston are in a f?ve of excitement concerning the reported defalca tion in that city of Mr. Samuel La wreoce. the se nior member of the Jtrm of Lawrence. Stone k Co., agents of the Bay mate Mills and other man ufacturing corporations From the accounts, It appears that Mr Lawrence was treasurer of the Bu\ State Mills, and employed the credit of the company in his private speculations to the amount of half a million dollars or thereabouts It furthermore appears that the function of trea surer and agent have in this Instance become so mingUd an to make It somewhat uncertain upon which otllce the alleged deficit should fall. It is certain, however, that the stock of the coiupanv was ( tfeied ou Saturday at lgjj per cent on the par without finding a purchaser, and that toanufK'uring storks ta Massachusetts have re ceived a blow from which they will not scon re cover 1ry Two men, named Sullivan ai.d Rielly, wt re arrested in Albany, on Thursday, for forg ing a railroad pass to Buffalo.
