SPIRIT OP THE MORNING PRESS The Union publishes, to-day, the Constitu tion of Kansas, of which it says : ?? Tho?e who hare been Imposed upon by the charge that the Constitution has lx?en fraudu lently withheld from the puhlie by the President of the Convention will now he nndeceived and disabused of these false impressions Vpon ex amination It will be found that tb? Constitution , Is strictlv republican in its provisions and < har-~ acter, and in many renperli au improvement on many of the old constitutions. There are some of it* detail* which might well he the subject* of different opinions. hut the same remark would be equally true of any constitution of any State. We venture to advance the opinion that it will be universally regarded as a good Constitution. On the subject of ilavery its provisions have heretofore been correctly described in the I'nion The only exception we "re taken to it that is worthy of any notice i* that taken by. the Black Republican journals The exception is. that if the slaverv clause should be voted out by the people of Kansas, Kansas would still be a slave State. 44 The fact is directly the reverse In that event slavery wouid be forever prohibited, except that the owners of the few slaves now In Kansas could not be forced to emancipate them without just compensation. We have said heretofore, and we now repeat, that no other provision could be or would be tolerated, either by Congress or by any respectable judicial tribunal. We commend the constitution to the attention of our readers, as furnishing the best answer to much of the preju dice sought to be excited against the action of the convention, and against the administration for Its determination to r**cognize and sarialn the legality of that action If fanaticism and faction do not rule the hour in Kansas, we shall soon have the pleasure of greeting into the Union an other sovereign State, with a constitution as soundly republican, and in its general provisions as wisely framed, as any of the older meml>ers of the confederacy; and, what is of no smalt mo ment, we shall have the satisfaction of announ cing the - finality' of sectional agitation." The IiiUlhgeueer, in an elaborate article, continues its efforts to effect the rejection by Congrets of the Kansas State Constitution, on the ground that the failure of the Convention to submit all its provisions to a popular verdict before the Territory's admission as a State, is a sufficient violation of the principle of popular sovereignty to justify the policy of keeping the Kansas question open. Such is tbe gist of its argument, however well its purpose may be obscured from the carnal reader by its elabo ration. The idea ot the Intell i ?rrneer\* setting up for the most zealous guardian of popular rights in its old age. is. simply, one of tbe most ridicu lous notions of all the vagaries which have marked American politics up to this time. The truth is. unless the Kansas question be kept alive for a year or two longer, there can be no ?arthly hope of bringing the Opposition into power in 1S60; for. we undertake to say, that upon ail other subjects there never has been an Administration of this Government that, in the same space ot time, has gained popular approbation, without distinction of party, so steadily and universally, as the present. Upun that subject, too?tbe Kansas slavery question?it has been forced to contend against a concentrated spirit of sectional popular mad ness, which would have prostrated the moral power of almost any other statesman so far oc cupying the Executive chair. At it is. how ever, the Democracy, through the prudent, patriotic and conservative course of James Buchanan, as a candidate, and, subsequently, as tbe Executive of the Confederacy, are now far stronger also, than at any previous time in four years Che opposition realise the force of these truths, and are clutching through their metro politan organ, the Intelligencer, at their only hope of bringing about the Democratic dissen sions absolutely necessary to justify them in even attempting to organize against whoever may be tbe Democratic nominee in l;<f>0. This, in few words, is the real key to the />/? itlUgenctr'* present funny position?that of the chief newspaj?er defender of popular rights. By the by. tho Philadelphia Presn is indeed a God-send to our neighbor, who should forth with send its editor a barrel of the beet Lynn haven Bays that Garrison fishes up. 4 j|T The Aspinwall Courier Is dead from lack of patronage. }P* Miss Emma Dietz, whose mysterious dis appearance a few days ago was extensively ad vertised in the New York papers, has been dis covered by the police in a house of prostitution in Howard street, whither she had been forced by soiue unknown man. r The AU?any Journal says of the rumor that a receipt from Mr N 1? Banks for ?10 WW had been foond among the papers of Samoel Lawrence: '? The facts of tbe case are:?Mr. Banks, a few years ago, bniit an addition to bis house at Wal tbam, and to nifft the < arpenter's bills, obtained a discount at hank ou his note for 8700, endorsed by Mr. Lawrence, who was his peisoual friend, though a political opponent. When tbe note matured, it was duly paid, and Mr. L. made a memorandum of the fact in his books " Flo* New Mexico ?The Sauta Fe Gazette of tbe 31st of October, contains a few interesting items. It reports the return of Mr James L. Collins, Superintendent of Indian Affairs, from the Nava jo country, whither he had gone to be present at the distribution of the annuity goods. About two thousand live hundred of the tribe were present and appeared much pleased with tbe goods given them. This is the largest and most powerful trib* of Indians in New Mexico, num bering 3,UU> warriors.

The Carers To-Night.?According to. the custom prevailing for many years past, Aiere will be a caucus of the dominant (Democratic) party members use M Representa tives, in their Hall, a|^| p. m , when'and where it is anticipated that they will nominate can didates for the various elective offices of their organization. As there is an iadefiuite multi- 1 tude of candidates for their favor, and ad there is also a legion of candidates for subordinate offices in the gift of those who may carry off the elective prizes, and as all of both have nu merous outside supporters?such pulling and hauling of arriving members, Opposition as well m Democratic, a* has taken place in the congregating halls of the hotels of the oity fur the last forty-eight hours, was never before seen or heard of here or elsewhere ; the disease of office seekingjhaving increased in its ravages, greatly, since the House of Representatives had last to organize. If one desires to realize how universal this disease hns affected the nation, he has only quietly to observe what goes on in the places mentioned above until 7 p. m. to-night. Such bowing and scraping and hand-squeezing, such anxious inquiries after the health o( honorable members and their dear wives and children, sucb whisperings, such pledges, such petition ing. Ac., Ac., to the end of the chapter of the usual appliances of candidates, will be then4 and there witnessed and heard, as must put quite a new wrinkle into the noddle of any one not " up to snuff" in the Federal Metropolis. We presume that there are at least live hun dred of those technically known as "outsiders'' ?not candidates themselves, but individuals for some reason or other taking especial inter est in the election of some one particular can didate for some office, or in the organization of this or that committee?now busily engaged in button-holeing honorable members. They make such a pandemonium around the uninitiated of | Congress as sorely puzzles not a few of them, evidently. In times like the present, we fully realize the eternal wisdom of the venerable a I age?" blessed are they who expect little, for they shall not be disappointed." Few indeed among the throng described above, we fear, will find themselves in thid category of the happy blessed, alier. say about < the end of next week, by which time the House will doubtless not only be organized, but the multitude of subordinate places incident to the transaction of its business will be filled. The Cosstitittio:*?We received a oopy of the Constitution made for Kansas, yesterday, at too late an hour to enable us to write of it understanding^?for it is necessarily a docu ment of great length?in time for our issue of the day. So we preferred to remain silent con cerning it for twenty-four hours. In the mean while, after a careful study of its protisions, we have to say that the popular judgment upon it will be that it is not?as was so freely alleged here, of late, in electioneering against its re ception by Congress?an instrument full of such improper provisions that its authors Sought to hide it from the people's eye as long as pos sible; but, without exception, the very best State Constitution ever framed for any portion of the American Union. It is truly republican in all it* features, guards public and popular rights with more zealous care than aDy other instrument of the kind, provides liberally for the progress of the new State, compels rigid responsibility and accountability in all trusted by the public as State or other officers or as corporators; and. indeed, embraces no feature that can possibly prove objectionable to any, except those resolved to oppose it because made by the Lecompton Convention instead of the Topeka Convention. In saying that it will be universally hailed from one end of the land to tho other us the model State Constitution of the Confederacy, we simply express what we know to be the opinion of it entertained by all the public men of all parties now here, who have already taken the trouble to read it carefully. If its reception by Congress be now opposed, it cannot be on the ground that it contains (as was so lately alleged) provisions repugnant to the received ideas of right and wrong enter tained by any portion of the people of the Uni ted States, except by men voted by their neigh bors to bo monomaniacs on some isolated sub ject or other. Its provisions, one and all, settle the fact of its prompt acceptance by Congress, we think, beyond peradventure, and vindicate the wis dom of the Executive in electing to stand by the action of its authors. That such a Consti tution should be rejected only because it was not made under abolition auspices?which is uow tho gist of the controversy?would be monstrous, indeed. Its great length prevents us from inserting it in the Star, while so capital are its material provisions, one and all, as that we fear to mu tilate it by quotations. So we will content ourself with recommending all to read it?and in twenty-four hours it will be in the roach of every reader in this region in the large news papers published here and elsewhere. The public, from one end of the Confederacy to the other, will soon be exclaiming?Can that possibly be the Constitution that was lately represented to us as being a sort of raw head and bloody-bones affair! I.nfidelism in Wasuimgtox.?We :e?ret to learn that there really does exist among us a little infidel organization, composed, it may be. of individuals who in many other respec c are excellent citizens. The following cemmuniea tion from one of them, we publish only by way of calling attention to the fact of the existence of thi* half daft and half kinky organization here, and not because we regard it as in any way weakening the force of the sensible and well balanced remarks quoted by the Star not long since from the Journal of Commerce, wherein the theocratic madness of David Hume, and ? with the permission of our correspondent?his followers of the present times, was exposed with a master hand : Washinuto* Citt, D.

Wm. P. Wood. The Vkhv Last Programme.?Nothing amuses us more than the u Washington news" now being scattered broadcast over the land by the prolific pens, and cyen more prolific brains of the Washington letter writer* for the dis tant press. The following is the last and most striking absurdity among them all that has fal len under our notice. It was addressed to a New York journal by an usually well-informed writer: '?Failing in the chances above indicated, the the Republican* will, in the event of dissensions among the Democrats, adopt some member of high personal character, possibly Mr. Hickman, of Pennsylvania, who ia known to oppose the Administration on its Kansas policy, and with the aid of the Walker force in the House elect him to the Chair, in that case a fair compro mise would be made, and the offices and the printing of the iiou ?e would he divided between Republicans, American*, and Walker Demo crats." We need not assure the Washington readers of the Star that the "Walker force'' among the Democrats of the House who are going for Mr. Ilickman or any other gentleman 4-in ca hoot" with the Republican party on the ground of disinclination to the Kansas policy of the ad ministration, or on any other ground, is a myth. The same writer announces Mr. Caratbers, of Missouri, as a Pacific-Railroad oandidate for the Speakership, with a strong chance of elec tion, and all that sort of thing. We regret to hare to write that that gentle man is suffering, at home, under such severe ill ness as that it is questionable whether he can take his seat until towards the close of the ses sion, and are very sure that that distinguished and popular statesman has never dreamed of oc cupying the position of a candidate assigned to him by this writer. If all the Washington let ter writers say of events in progress here were trne. what a higglety-pi^glety time we would be having o?1t' The Re< ej?t New York Ei.ectio!*.?The majority against Fernando Wood, when first elected Mayor in 1854, (a plurality elects in New York) was iy,507. In 1856, when next eieoted, it was 8,30U. On this occasion it dwindled down to 2.430. Thus, it seems that he has been steadily gaining friends by his ad ministration of bis trust, having been elected only through the division of the opposition. He has been gaining strength, too, under the fire of the bitterest opposition of personalities ever directed to break down a public man in this country. The heavy vote polled for him a few days since renders it certain that the New York public entertain but little respect for most of his assailants on personal grounds; or their advice would bavo weakened rather than strengthened him. as it has done. Our im pression is that his foolish exploit in pandering to demagogism in the matter of the late agrarian demonstrations in New York, brought about his defeat, and not the charges aguin?t him, personally, that the Tribune, Ttmet, and Expre.it, have boen ringing so pertinaciously in the public ear. He is beaten, but only after demonstrating that he is the mun of perhaps the greatest power and influence in the city of New York ; for sneh opposition as has been directed against him would long since have broken down any other public man, however little those making it might have been respected and con fided in by the voters of the city. Characteristic Labor*. ? The Northern opposition press are doing their best, of course, for the complete detachment of Gov. Walker from the Democratic party. Never before was he so great and good a man. The whole future of the country rests on his shoulders, according to the assertion* of these good-natured and suddenly-enthusiastic admirers of his. They tell him, in effect, " Only set up against the Democratic party and its chosen chief. Presi dent Buchanan, and it is as clear as noonday that you may sweep them off the face of the earth, as it were."' But this happens to be precisely the lan guage they have used to every gentleman they have attempted to detach from his allegiance to the Democratic organization. They have suceeeded with it in hurrying hundreds into the yawning political grave wherein those that listen to tbem tumble headlong, sooner or later A few they have temporarily advanced in a small way, but only to positions rendering their sare eventual plunge into their wide-mouthed pit of political oblivion, the more conspicuous. It ia sincerely to be hoped that Gov.Walker'l proverbial shrewdness will enable him to avoid taking, upon a mere abstraction, I? premier pat in that direction The fact that they now evidently have high hopes of 44 bagging" him, is no proof whatever that he will eventually enter their toils. Florida Improvtmejit.?Senator D.L. Yu lee. of Florida, on the 27th ult., delivered an able and very interesting address before the Savannah (Qa.) Chamber of Commerce, in ex planation of the system of railroad improve ments in progresspn his State, the condition of the various works, their prospects, Ac. The speech ia one of the moat elaborate and care fully prepared papers that has yet seen the light in tbia country on such a topic, and can not fail to be of great advantage to all who re flect on the progress of the development of our national resources, as well as to all who study the influence of new work* of internal improve ments on the value of competing or connecting works of the snme description.
