EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: YKIA4Y** ? ? ??? ?????? ?? DfCfmbT 4, 1847. SPIRIT OH THE MOtiNING PRESS The IntelhgeucT is to-day devoted to new?. The Union again discusses the Kansas <yie? tion, saying, in the coarse of its remarks, with force and truth : " In the absence of any restriction In an ena bling act of Congress, the people of Kansas have as clear a ri^ht to decide whether their constitu tion should be submitted for popular ratification, la whole or in pert as tbey have to decide whether slavery shall or shall not exist They can only settle this question, however, by the t*g*l decision of the people. If the lace conven tion wm a legal body, and Its action within the ?cop* of Its Urml power, it is a clear infraction of the doctrine of non-intervention to attempt to de feat the /?fa//y-exprew?fd will of the people, apon the assumption that the whole constitution ought to have been submitted. The Kansas act declare* that the people of Kansas have a full right to decide that question. They have decided it by the action of a legal convention, and the 'administration, in recognising that action, is faithfully carrying out the spirit and letter of the .Kansas act." _ f ![/? In Boston a petition Is circulating, and largely signed, for the removal of Judge Loring. ID" The New York Journal of Commerce at length argnes in favor of the adoption of the Pa risian system of general and thorough police es pionage as the only measure calculated to restore peace and safety to the people of the city of New York. IFF On Wednesday, the Uth ult., Mr. \Vm. Pierce, of Franklin parish, La., was killed by ?wo of histwgroes at his plantation in Beauf Prairie. He attempted to flog them, whereupon they attacked and killed him. A Xkw Cattlb Disb*sk.?The Wilmington (Del.) Journal states that a disease affectsthe cat tle ia that State; the only symptom of illness, however, is an incessant lowing from the com mencement of the attack till the animal lies down to die. The UsroBTtSATi Casal ?We learn from the Cumberland Telegraph that another land alide occurred on the Chesapeakeand Ohio Canal near the Tunnel, on Saturdjy, and also one en Tuesday. About one thousand yards of rock come down by the latter slide, and it will require three months to remove It, This closes navlga gation for the season beyond all doubt. ITT The re-opening of the New York canals Will probably bring to market more than three millions of bushels of wheat. By the closing of the Weliand canal upwards of 600.000 bushels of Wheat, afloat for the port of Oswego, were de tained from reaching its destination; while for the Canadian port, there were about 300.000 in the same predicament. On the Erie Canal there were froaen in upward of 1,(00,000 bushels of wheat. on its way to tide water; while between the head of Lake Michigan and the port of Buf Wo, there was. on board vessels frozen up at the various ports, and in vessels stranded or lost in the reeent gale, upward of 1,500.000 bushels of wheat. L*t cs Pimii rot Mrsbt Christmas ? We, pertinently says the New York Express, have had a blue autumn ; let ns have a white winter. The season has been a sad one; let us do what we can to make the foture more pleasant and cheerful; and if not for the "old folks at home." then f?r the young children, to whom the Christmas Holidays are the brightest antici pations of the year. December is upon us Ho, for "a merry Christmas :? Let It be a season of liberal giving to the poor?for giving work to unemployed?for opening a new s-t of book*? beginning new enterprises, founded upon reason and common sense Men of the stores, come from your biding places. Let the public know who yon are, and what yon have. Bring out your gav colo-s, and wreathe your shops in smiles and good humor. There Is no better in vestment than a good heart, bright hopes, and a strong will in times like the present. You who are for a merry Christmas, brush away the cob webs, and make others prosperous and happy by beginning to feel so yourselves. '"Habd Tijias ' Part*?The Jackson Missis, ?ippian gives a glowing description of a " hard times party, one of the most agreeable of the sea son,' which ushered in inauguration day at the capital of the neighboring State. The ladies were required to dress in calico, and with but a few exceptions the request was com pi ed w tfa. The attire of the gentlemen was homespun, and in some instances they wore rus set brogans. The company assembled at an early hour, and soon "The brisk awakening viol" Waa heard, and the company mingled In the mer ry dance. The costumes of the ladies were, with oot exception, becoming. Among the distinguished guests present was his Excellency Gov. McRae and lady, and Hon A. G. Brown and lady. Dancing was kept up until 12 o'clock, when the company partook of a splendid collation, and then the dance was resumed, which ceased not uatii the "wee sma' hours A Mokmox Pi.ace OF Rtreat.?It is stated that the Mormons, among their other prepara tions, have not forgotten to look out a Canaan of refuge, in case the United States should disagree too severely with tbelr patriarchal institutions. The "Saints have, it appaars, an excellent open road from their southwestern valleys to a settle ment of their own on the confines of Lower Cali fornia. This colony consists of between one and two tbousaad picked settlers?brave, prudent, Industrious, and well instructed not to give of fence to their christian neighbors. The colony keeps up a steady communication with Salt Lake> six hundred miles distant; and it is scarcely to lie doubted that they have planted other stations in the pleasant and fertile vallies scattered along this route The inference is obvious, from the systematic arrangement, which opens the way to Sonora and Lower California, that the Mormons have contemplated the possibility of a retreat be yond the t"nited States jurisdiction. They aflli. late with the Indians, are strong enough to hold both Sonora and Lower California against Mexi co, and nothing but a large volunteer force and the establishment of a cordon of military settle ments can reduce the Mormons to submission. I to* Kansas?A dispatch from St. Loois state. thst a meeting was held at Lawrence on the 19th ultimo for the purpose of considering the ac tion of the late constitutional convention Reso lutions were adopted declaring the Lecompton constitution to be a gross violation of the express wishes of the people of Kansas, a fraud begotten of fraud, and solemnly pledging themselves to reeisttothe last all attempts to thrust it upon them; repudiating the election proposed to be held on the ?lst of December; and suggesting that if the executive of the Territory does not im mediately call a special session of the Legisla ture of the Territory, that Governor Robinson should call a special session of the State Legisla ture at the earliest moment. A resolution was adopted recommending the appointment of a vigrlauce committee, and a de termination to sustain the action of that commtt> tee E B Whitman presided, and speeches Were made by Robinson, Lane and others.

Thb Iktertibw.?It is understood that Sen ator Douglas spent some time yesterday in con-' saltation with the President npon the subject of the Kansas imbroglio. Of aourse the eH v is full of a multitude of rumors with, reference to their conversation and ite result, few of which deserve confidence. Many of them, originating with the Opposition, ate designed for no other purpose than to embarrass and sow the seeds of distrust in the Democratic ranks, by creating the belief that Democratic harmony this winter is a matter of impossibility. Senator Douglas is among the most tried statesmen of the party, though so young in ago. In the coarse of his long public service he has never been found wanting whenever the inter ests of Democratic principles were in jeopardy. His enlarged experience and proverbial devo tion to the good cause, through good and evil report, must, of couse. assure all that he will not be found, as many of these reports allege* taking ground whieh may throw him in opposi tion to the position of those with whom he has so long acted; and more especially upon fhe in sufficient information concerning the present shape of the Kansas imbroglio as yet before the members of Congress here assembled; which information is not, in itself, sufficient to justify any fixed plan of action with reference to de tails. We feel very sure, from what we learn, that Senator Douglas is as earnestly anxious as any one can be for the prompt and entire settle ment of this vexations question by those only who have really a right to interfere in it?the peoplo of the Territory. Knowing, as we do, that that, and that only, is the aim of the Pres ident's policy on the subject, we feci very sard that Stephen A. Douglas will, when he comes to speak for himself, be found standing, on all really essential point?, shoulder to shoul der and heart to heart with those who have so long leaned apon him as oiy of their chosen leaders. The New Theatre.?The work of the con version of Carusi's Saloon into an elegant me tropolitan theatre is to be commenced on Wed nesday next, with a large force of experienced mechanics. It is anticipated that it will be ready for the opening of the season by Monday night, the 28ih inst. The scenery, wardrobe, and properties will be shipped from New York in ample time to be all in place by the date mentioned above. The bouse will be opened by one of the best light-comedj companies ever performing in this country. Quite a number of members of the different foreign legations in Washington, leading citizens and public men. hare already secured stalls for the sehfon, which we advise all to do who desire to see the enterprise goon with proper spirit and eclat. At present, there is every promise that the sea son will be eminently a brilliant and successful one. We need hardly add, that the enterprise has our very best wishes. The front of tho house is to be so arranged as that there are to bo one hundred orchestra stall seats, separate seats for seven hundred in the parquet, raising up each receding row sufficiently above the other; and the boxes (dress circle) are to seat four hundred, all with extreme oomfort. In capacity, both of stage and auditorum, the house will be about as large as Wallack's theatre in New York, on the Style of which establishment the arrange ments are to be modelled. Thb Eighth CEysrs.?The time for taking the next Census is approaohing rapidly. It is a work of prime national importance. It is well known that many imperfections in the method and mode by which the work is done in this country exist. They are only to be obvi ated by a much earlier and. more thorough preparation than has been customary up to this time. We do not feel competent to suggest the remedies, though realising that remedies are necessary to cure the defects in our census taking arrangement* and system. To the end of directing the attention of our Congressional readers to the subject, we insert in the Star a late communication upon it, ad dressed to the head of the Interior Department by some writer unknown tons, who is evidently competent to offer valuable advice in the prem ises : The Eighth Cxnsc*. Washinotos, Dec. 1,1?57. I To tkt Honorable Jacob Thompson, Secretary of tht Interior. Pin: The decadal period is fast approaching | when, in accordance with the Constitution, ait I enumeration of the inhabitants of the United states must be made in order to ascertain the ratio of representation in their House of Repre j sentatives. Independent of the fundamental law, and the reason thereof, it has been of late years customary for Congress to direct to be taken and appended to this numbering of the people a reliable mass of statistics bearing upon ttieir interests. This appendix is so obviously a concomitant of popu lation tables that the only surpiise is that it was 1 not previously adopted. But if history be phil osophy teaching by example the history of the Seventh Census instructs us a very salutary les son The act of Congress prescribing the in trims operandi was approved only on the?3d <>f Mav. 1*50 An anterior law was passed (3d March, 1849,) but Its provisions, as well as the inchoate I action under it, were virtually ignored by the posterior act, which ordained that the enumera tion and the general statistics should tie taken on the first of the following June?a week after' This, of course, was but a fiction of law. The great task of preparing, printing, and I transmitting nine hundred folio volume* of I schedules. of eight hundred pages each, to the wide-scattered marshals, extending over a space I of nearly three millions of square miles, and then those officials proceeding to enumerate the I almost infinite, and, In some cases, useless de tails of population, agricultural, Industrial med I ieal, social, and other facts, in any reasonable space of time, would have Iteen almost superhu man it is true that the Registrar-General of I Great Britain has the census of that realm taken I in one day ; and that, too, with far more elabo I ration than ours was ever taken; but be occupies I years In preparation; and our Union lies in Slate* and Territories of an area three times lar I ger than the whole of that Kingdom, France, Austria. Prussia, Spain, Belgium, Holland and Denmaik combined?larger than the Roman Em pire in its palmiest days' These are facts to make us proud; but, at the same time, discreet. I If Rome was not built in a day so cannot our census be taken. At least so was not the sev I enth. Importune, incomplete, and in a high de I gree erroneous ; derogatory to the fair character I of our country, after more than four years of painful and most expensive parturition, the re turns were brought forth, "scarce half made up," in the shape of an enigmatical quarto, which lived in public estimation hardly long enough to erjr! By this remark I have no intention of casting reflections upon Us Superintendents. They la bored long and hard to realize the wishes of Con gress; but the incongruous nature of the mate, rials and the tardy hour at which they arrived, forbid that more expeditious and accurate state of the Union which it is the privilege of its citi zen* to possess But the propitious time is now at hand for the initiation of a Census Bureau, which would avoid the Scylla and Charibdys of former at tempts A small but energetic and experienced clerical corps to be;;in the task at once would prevent all future difficulty. Fortunately, sir, the act of May'23, IS.V),confers upon you the' rtower to make the preliminary ar rangements, it a subsequent Congress does not reconsider that law. Now it must be apparent to a gentleman of your practical views that there it wisdom in the words which Lord Chief Jus tice Hale considered worthy of having engraved upon the head of his cane?feitina lente.' With inconceivably less of time, trouble, and money, the Eighth Census inay be taken in a satisfactory manner, published at a proper time and in a pop. ular form. Abstract tables, vague proph<cle , learned speculations, and pedantic tbeoiies a<"e foreign to the feelings and desires of our people. We want the adaptation of practical facts to pr?c tical men. Under your supervision I dout t not but that such a volume will be produced, and made a welcome vi?iter at every nouiesUad In the land Nor need It be r.oinpo-ed of m-re fa^t*. ^Something may be said of our v.i?t agricultural resources, enviable cotiip<irison> made and a laud able ambition excited. And, although nothing is truer than the axiom of the illustrious Sully? * Pasturage and tillage are the two noises of the State/' yit that is equally ti ue wlitch was said by a scarcely less distinguished statesman? ?' Coamterce >? the hfe-blooti of nation*." B >tl? subjects are. however, of eurh great importance that It would be idle to dwell upon them wlthiu the meagre bounds of a letter. The social, religious, and industrial statistics enter largely into our political economy. They give us a deep Insight into oar Institutions; ana by diffusing knowledge they banish ignorance a d it* attendant*, prejudice and sectionalism. The great body of the people are sound, and, like Aj*x, want bat light! From the resntrtive States of the Union wilL roine to such a Bureau the decennial and lemto decennial returns of the census they order for tbelr own puspoe** They abound in interesting de tail* of much consequence to the General Govern ment, and should be on hand prepared for the in spection, at anytime, of it* officers. Thev will aid, also, very materially, in preparing and col lating the national schedules. The products of industry of the last census, taken with great pains and cost, lie buried in ob livion. The delay in receiving them and the time occupied in the rest of the work has ren dered the manufacturing and mining statistics comparatively useless Still, much might be ? leaned fropi them of value; and they should not ^ suffered to remain unarranued and unbound. Their preservation as well as that of all the man uscripts of the seven last cenmw returns demand such care as a Bureuu alone can give. As you have thoseat your call accustomed to the task, no more data need be suggested. That an early preparation and great circum spection are requisite for the very responsible work of the F.iguth Census is manifest. To be gin early Is to begin well?Ctat U premiere pax qvi eoutt! The future must borrow from past experience; and to meet the expectations of the people will require no ordinary ability and dili gence. The National Legislature will listen ear nestly to your recommendations, and will doubt less promptly accede to thein. The Union has confidence in your foresight and judgment and will implicitly rely upon your performance of the duty. Pardon, sir, the liberty I take in thus address ing you ; but the subject is of paramount consid eration, and the right of petition is sacred to the American citlzsn?especially when its object is Pro Bono Ptblico. Central America.?The filibuster council stationed here are doubtless laboring with might and main to induce the appointment of members of their own coterie, or, if not, gen tlemen known to be ardent sympathisers in their views of the law and propriety, to the Xicaraguan and Guatemalian missions, now vacant. We have no idea that they can possi bly succeed in inducing the appointment to those now most important positions of any per sons who may not be known to have always held opinions on the subject of filibustering identical with those of the Government of the United States. It does not always happen that public functionaries escape being imposed on in making appointments. In this case, how ever, the selections to be made involve so se rious consequences to the success of the polisy of the Government upon one of the three great difficulties now encompassing it, as that they wiil surely be made only after earnest and careful investigation of the antecedents, as well as the qualifications, of all the aspirant!. Enterprising.?Omaha City, the capital of Nebraska Territory, contains a population of 3,500. But three years ago the town site was the favorite camping ground of the Omaha In dians. A number of three-story brick business blocks, costly and handsome private residences, steepled churchcs and school-houses, evidence the energy and enterprise of the citizens, and presage a bright future for the young metropo lis. The capitol, towards the building of which $50,000 was appropriated by Congress, has been enclosed and partially completed by the city authorities. The corporation of Omaha issued $50,000 in scrip for this object?the scrip passes as currency throughout the Territory, and an swers all purposes for a home exchange. Should Congress fail to make an appropriation to in demnify the city for this large expenditure, the public squares and parks will be sold to re deem the Bcrip, within one year from the date of its issuance. The Territorial legislature met on the day before yesterday in the new capitol. The Concert To-Night.?Of coarse the conccrt to be given at Carusi's Saloon this evening by Parodi and Vieuxtemps. assisted by Miss Milner and Mr. Perring of England, (distinguished artists, who make their first ap pearance before a Washington audience on this occasion,) will be thronged with a musical and fashionable audience. Parodi and Vieuxtemps, of themselves, never fail to draw great and tasteful houses here. The latter is certainly the most accomplished violinist in America, while the former has no superior here as a prima donua. The pieccs selected arc as admirable as popu lar with all lovers of fine music. If we have any among us who have not yet heard Parodi and Vieuxtemps they should be sure to attend, for such another opportunity of listening to their rich and mellow notes may never again be within their reach. Baker's and Jarvis' Islands.?It tarns out that Captain Davis, of the United States sloop-of-war St. Mary's has reported to the Navy Department, not that he could find no guano there, but there were large quantities of a portable substance, which he did not con sider guano. Now, it happens that a number of eminent chemists who have analyzed it, and many eminent agriculturalists who have used it on their crops pronounce itphosphatic guanoof great value indeed, to the future of our coun try's agriculture. The question, therefore, is, simply, whose judgment, with reference to the character of the dejmeit, is most reliable?that of Captain Davis, U. 8. N.??or that of the ex perts in guano who differ with him ?. Naval Courts op Inquiry.?Before Court No. 1, the case of Passed Midshipman Geo. A. Stevens (dropped) was taken up to-day ; T. M. Blount, Esq.. appeared for Stevens. Dr. Lynah was being examined on Government behalf. Before Court No. 2, the case of Lieut. J. A. Doyle was up. and Dr. S. D. Addison. Lieuts. J. C Carter, Van R. Morgan and M C. Marin testified for defence. Before Court No. 3, documentary evidence was being read in the case of ex-Capt. Levy. Well Done fob Nebraska ?But three of the eight chartered banks of Nebraska have failed to redeem their issues during the revul sion which has swept the country from one end to the other. The outstanding circulation of the banks wheu the general crash commenced, ranged variously at from one to three hundred thousand dollars. This is doing well for a Ter ritory but three years old.

Btd I ford Ka., Democrat UjT A man named Edgar Fluker has a new re cipe for the cure of those painful excrescencet, cancers. The remedy It cheap and easy of ob ttlnlng and applying, aud cannot possibly do anv harm. It is simply to hold a toad or frog, either dead or alive, to the affected part for the space of one hour, repeating tbe application as I occasion reqnirea. W ith six frogs Mr. Fluker I tayt be cured a very painful cancer upon bit I nose, of six years'tt ana ing, and now contldert himself sonnd and well. I 1E7* Tbe Norwich (Ct.) Courier aays that tbe I worst fears in regard to tbe poisonous nature of I the water supplied to a portion of that town through a lead pipe aqueduct are confirmed hy a I chemical examination by Jaiues R.

The aque duct has been In operation moretbnn twenty-five yeart,and persons most familiarwlth the history of families tuppl'ed by It now remember man/ [aleatht in which the symptoms were the same as I iu thoxe which have lately been caused by thts poison Dr. Chilton pronounces the water to be remarkably pure, but Its very purity was tbe I cause of tne poison, at impure water forms a I coating of its impurity in tbe pipes, so as to neu I tralize the chemical action between the water and I tbe lead, while tbe pure water hat none of the | properties to counteract this deadly influence.
