John Kelly and Mr. A. G. Seaman, the Super intendent of the Public Printing, niottappiopos to the current charged of frand.colluiion and cor ruption in connection with the Public Printing. Our first impulse was to comment on it, aa illus trating the length to which those desirous of defeating the re-election of the present Hou?e Printer had gone. But, on reflection, wo prefer to lay it before the Star a roaders with few commenta of our own. It has been charged?indirectly though it may be?for, however anxious parties may be to clutch what they regard as the " plunder" of the Public Printer, they have never dared to make any such palpable charge for which they were responsible?that the Superintendent of the Public Printing has been engaged in buy ing and selling in the discharge of his trust. Ilia letter, which will be found below, will satisfy any man, not only that the charge that the Public Printer haa been the recipient of enormous patronage?to the extent of nearly a million of dollars is sweepingly unfounded; but that if it be true that there is collusion and corruption in connection with the contracts for the public printing and engraving, as alleged, the guilt lays at the door, not of the Supefm* tendent, but equally at those of the Vice Presi dent, the Speaker, the Senate and House com mittees on Printing an 1 Engraving, and the officers of the Treasury Department; and that the parties with whom they have made the alleged corrupt contracts number fifty or sixty, perhaps?business firms scat tered all over the country?who*e integrity was never questioned until that course was found necessary in the current work of persons some of whom having black-mailed the present Prin ter past endurance, now seek to defeat him by fanning combinations with all lav-rous alter " plunder." and dinging into the public ear un founded charges concerning Lis di>char^o of the duties of his oilice.

I am. sir, very respectfully, your obedient ser vant, A. G. Szaman, Superintendent. Toe Derbt.?We mentioned a day or two since that the contest for the Doorkenpership of the House of Representatives was likely to be a very " Derby" in its way. Since then we have had a flight of ?uch of the nags (competi tors) as are under training here or within striking distance of Washington city. They are as follows: Z. W. McKnew. District of Columbia. Peter Gorman, Maryland. B II. Dorsey, Maryland. Col. Wilson, Texas. Robinson, District of Columbia. V m. P. Phillips, ex-Sixth Auditor, Virginia Jas F. Devine, Virginia. R. B. ilaekuey, Virginia. Merritt Jordan. Virginia. J. P. Santamcyer, Ohio. Samuel J. Johnson, Indiana. Geo. IJ. Wooldridge, New York. Byron Gordon Daniels. Joseph Berrctt. Massachusetts. Carroll, Mississippi. C. B. Whitney. California. Lawlcr, New Jersey. There are others not yet named to the pub lic. For instance, the honorable member from the Brooklyn district of New York is said to have an unnamed candidate, who is to start off backed by the votes of the New York Demo cratic members ; Wisconsin is expected to send us at least one, if not two competitors, and Michigan and Iowa at loast one a piece. In such a handicap contest, it is of course impos sible to predict who may win. Our judgment at this stage of the game is, that in betting upon the race it will be safe to take 'the fiold" against any named ?? nag.'' Republic ah Paktyism i* Dimol-i.se ? The few nominal Doinocratic'joumals at the North that are still trying to woaken the Democracy upon the Kansas question?undertaking to dispute the right of the Kansas Constitution Convention to dispose of their work as they hare done?arc already mouthing over the old exploded anti-Nebraska-bill pleas of the New York Tribune. They are evidently " sold to the Dutch..body and breeches. It seems strange to find such arguments in thoir columns as those to which they are compelled to resort in their present work of disorganization. The Pevu fylvanian of Saturday last exposed their tergiversation with a master pen, saying We invite especial attention to an ahle article from the Washington Union, which will I* found on our first page. It disposes of all the objections urged against the so-railed provisional government of Kansas, and shows that the elec tion provisions which :ippear in the Kansas con stitution are identical with those in the constitu tions of Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, and every Mate constitution whiah has been adopted since 1^02. It is, therefore, apparent that the Kansas convention followed safe and sure precedents for the rule of action they raw fit to ;.dopt There seems to be :t settled co:iviction that the action of ' the constitutional convention of Kansas has the full endorsement of the National Administration. If so. it ttttoids another evidence of a determina tion on the jt.irt of the President to carry out In good faith aud to the Very letter the great prin ciples of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, which r? reived such au emphatic endorsement In his election. The Whole matter is now in the hands of the people of Kntisas, where every true Democrat will agree to leave it The polls are open to all, and provisions made to secure a fair and impar tial election Kadi one ran vote as kis judgment dictates. If for slavery, h?t ran deposit his bal lot in favor of that Institution; if opposed to slavery, an opportunity Is extended for hltn to testify in a legal, constitutional manner, his op position to its continuance in the State. Is this not Democratic, fair and just.' Does not the Kau s:tM-.Nebraska bill provide for just such an exer rise of power by >he people of the territories, and in precisely the same manner ? It undoubtedly does, and yet we hear those who were loudest in praise of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, now echoing the arguments and Invectives of the New Voik Tribune against the Democratic party of Kansas, and urging the Democrac y of old Pennsylvania?the home of James Buchanan, who was elerted by a united party?united upon the very pi iacipl* which underlie* the action of the Kansas Constitutional Convention, to join forces with the Black Republican party In the Noith, repudiate the principle of non-interven tion, trample upon all those pledges which they nave given tp the Nation, and join in an unholy war upon tneir political brethren in Kansas, who are engaged in a death struggle for the triumph of Democratic principles lu that Territory, which is soon to ltecome a State. Greeley does not like the doing* of the Democratic party In Kansas, and because of that fart Democrats in the old Kevstone are te cry down the action of their own party. If this Is to bo the course pursued the National Administration will soon fall under the ban of these new-fashioned Democrats, for It is not piobable th ' sound D-moriatlc ideas of our dis tlanguished President will please the editor of the Tribune or his new found disciples more than dues the action of the Constitutional Convention of Kansas. But the Democracy of Pennsylvania have not sunk so low as to deseit either their principle-, or those who are contending for them in other sections of the (Jniou, at the bidding of the New York Tribune or its so-called Demo cratic co-laborers in the Black Republican cause. Pennsylvania is true to the principles of the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and her firm and gallant Democracy will uever dtsert those who are con tending for them, whether in Kansas or else where, to fraternize with traitors alike to the Constitution and the Union.

Goverxok Waleer, of Kansas, duly reached Washington on the evening before last. Yes terday, according to the common understand ing on the Avenue, he had a long interview with the Pre&ident. A hundred rumors pur porting te embrace the substance and result of their conference are floating around us. almost all of which differ in essential points. Placing no confidence in any of them, wo give none of them a place in the Star's columns. The President and Governor Walker are natives of the same State, and were long associated with each other as political and personal friends in the discharge of publie trusts. Our hope has been, with our knowledge of the earnei^nefs with which the Presideuthas Sought throughout the whole of the Kansas imbroglio under his administration simply to conserve the principle of the Kansas Nebraska act, that in the end no serious obstacles would be found to that harmony of sentiment between them on the subject, so likely to strengthen the prospect for the future unity and ascendancy of the Demo cratic party, which the President aims to se cure, and for which all sound and unselftah Demoorats hope. ?, v Believing that twenty-four boar* spent in the Federal Metropolis at tbrs time will prove suf ficient to convince Governor Walker where hia path of duty to his country and the unity of the Dcciocratio organization lays?if he did not know before, which wo have so far had no rea son to surmise?we have rested content in th? belief that all ia destined to go on happily In thia connection, Governor W. giving the Presi dent all the aid in hia power to effeet an har monious and final settlement of the imbroglio aa speedily aa possible.

The Statue of Washington safely landed on Capitol Square?A Labor of Love?Popular Enthusiasm. [From the Kichmond Enquirer, 25th inst ] About 1 p. m. yesterday we were astonished to tee the monster b<>x, containing the bronze eques trian statu** of Washington, moving briskly up the heavy gradeof Ninth stieet, ?>n Mr J R An derson's solid bro:id-iron-wheel wagon, drawn l?V tbe hands and hearts of more than a thousand of our citizen^, tn< lading a!I ages 'l'he box, weighing nineteen tons, wax coh\-yed from the bead of the dock along Seventeenth Kt. to Main, and there, the horses showing a want of power, the pcojilr. took bodily possession of the immense case, and, amitfst ioyous shouting, carri.d it up Main to Ninth, along Ninth to Bioad. along Broad to Tenth, and thence thiough an oi?*uing in the iron railing into its proper place infiout of the Monument. It was a grand and delightful spectacle, a* the mountain-box, drawn by hundred* of the citi zen*, with agent M.-Cloy and Capt Sam Free mau and Corporal Kritchman, of the Blues. with their flag, on the wagon in front, overcame all obstacles, and was safely landed, amidst enthu siastic cheerings. O'lly a f*w moments sufficed for the crowd to tear up the iron railing and cutb stones and contiguous trees, to make a passage Into the Square. The Mayer of the city w.is raised to the top of the 1h?x, and after a neat speech, urgpd the people to call the Governor out. Gov Wl?e could not resist the hearty en treaties of the besieging crowd, (who guarded all tli? exits of the Capitol,) and, escorted by tne Mayor, wa< welcomed by the crowd, wtio, by the ai t of a rope and their own shoulders, elevated him on the box. Just then the salutes were fired by detachments of Blues and Young Guard anil patriotic airs pe: formed by the Armory Band. The Governor stood betu-ath the '? stars and stripes," held up by a number of citizens, and addressed the im mense audience with eloquence and powerful effect. After a few pertinent remarks from Capt. Diiiiitiock, captain of the Public Guard, and Mr. Mayo, the crowd dispersed, leaving the box safely iu its place. We have never seen a mote picturesque and animating spectacle?the more so as it was entirely unexpected by everybody.

In several of the towns they have not sufficient mechanics to do half the work which is required, and for which they would receive from 1W.5U to 13 per day. One gentleman tells us that there la not a single shoemaker, tailor, blacksmith or tin i smith in the town of Osawattamie, nor In Paoli, in l.ykens county. In fact, theie is deficiency in all the mechanical branches throughout the Ter ritory. Two or three builders monopolize all the work in a town, and they are so busily engaged in erecting dwellings on their own account, that they refuse to do so, and are unable to attend to outside work. Laborers are wanted all over the Territory at better prices than can be obtained in any other fiart of the country. We are assured that there s no exaggeration iu this statement, and if we entertained^ the slightest doubt of its correctness we should not publish lt for the purpose of de ceiving those to whom such Information may be important. At the present time, when so many persons are thrown out of employment, and when the ap proaching winter may bring with It great dis tress, it would be well for those who are thus situated, to look in time for the means of subsis tence and protection for themselves and families Kansas offers the best field for the unemployed and industrious mechanic and laborer of tho United States. The gentlemen who commuul rated thin information we know to be reliable they have left their names at our office, and may be written to upoa the subject. JJjT A dispatch from New York, on the 25th. says: The foreign advices are regarded as ftvoral.le, as the anxiety and sus|iense here have been re lieved thereby, and trade in England, it Is e* pected, will begin to recuperate For a long while, how#ver, the business relation* between the two countries will be narrowed down to the smallest compass, and rest generally upon a cash basis. Slocks advanced here under the news, but the Impiovemettl was not maintained to the close. Considerable speculation is nevertheless appa rent.

The Blfwi by the Yanderbilt. The steamer Vanderbllt, a cummary of whose advices, a* received from Cape Rate, we pub. lished in Wedesday'? Star, brought three day* later intelligence from Europe. A despondent condition of monetary matters on the departure of the steamer Atlantic, on the af ternoon of the 11th instant, mulled on the fol lowing day in a fearful panic throughout the en tire country. All the bank* utterly refund to dl? count to their patron*, which naturally added to the wild excitement, until the afternoon of Thurs day, when a Treasury letter appeared in London, and wa-. instantly transmitted by telegraph to all the chief cities and towns, suspending the Bank Charter Act, and authorizing the issue of note* to any amount on approved securities. The ?-tfi ct at every point was instantaneous, and the pat.ic ceased as if by magic. At Liverpool, Mancbts ter, Glasgow, and other important eities. the news was received with the most extravagant ac clamations of joy The suspension of the City Bank of Glasgow, on Wednesday, the day the Atlantic sailed, is confirmed. We select the following list of suspensions from a large number reported in the English newspapers : Sanderson, Sandmann A Co., London. Wilson, Morgan & Co., statlotiee.s, London. Fitch A Street, London Coddington A Co., iron merchants, Liverpool Mackenzie, Ramsav A Co , Dundee Draper, Pirton A Co., I^mdon Falmin, Grenel A Co., Liverpool Bjn, B rod ice A Co., London Munroe, G ant A Co , Swansea Stergman A Co , Nottingham The London Money .vlaiket was ?.te*dier Fri day. the 13th lost., and Bank Stock sold &t to >212 Exchequer bills wrre firm and the feel ins in business circles in all the principal cities and inanufactu lng towns became de. idedlv more cheerful as soon as It Itecame known that Government had authorized the Batik to extend its issues without incurring the penalty of the Bink Charter Act The Bank of France bad raised its rate of dis count on 90 days bills to 10 per cent. Consuls h.idtiuct'iated considerably, but closed with increased ?teadinrss on Friday at for money. The greatest anxiety was felt in England to hiive the lews by the Vardeibiit reach New York inrdvanceof the publicity of the advices by the Atlantic.
