EVENING STAR WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNESDAY Dfffmkfr 16, 1W. AdffrtUrafiti ihoild k Hal la *T 19 t'dtck m.; otherwise they may Mt pftr aatU the aext day. SP IR IT OP THE MORNING PRESS. The Union, to day, shows that the Philadel phia Prt?* ia wrong in iu statement that Con* gress of its own motion, required the submia ?ion of the wbols constitution of Wisconsin to a popular vote before it* acceptance here. The truth ia. the convention framing that constitu tion required it: and Congress, acting on the principle that the convention waa the people of the Territory acting through their legally au thorized agents to determine what stages the constitution should be passed through before the State's admission into the Union on it, of course enacted that its (the convention's) direc tiona on tbe point in question should be carried out to the letter. The T/itrilig.Hcrr republishes, with appro batory comment*, nn article from tbe Albany Argm. counselling tbe Democracy of Congress to wait further developments in Kansas before determining what to do with the Lecompton Constitution. That is to say?in tbe present aspect of affair*?to wait until Lane. Kobinson. fetanton A Co., make a successful revolution tbero l*efore venturing to prepare to maintain tbe supremacy of law in that quarter. Such is the plain Koglish <4* thi* reooininendatiun. l?v" Fourteen colored persons were baptized in tbe river at Alexandria on Sunday afternoon. Tbe new Collins steamship Adriatic, Which was }<assed SO* miles from Liverpool on the 1st li st., proltably made tbe trip out in about nine day* and thirteen hours.

S Marshal Kvnder* is on the look out for them, and at the first favorable moment in tend* to rapture the whole gang. |pT All the banks of New York city continue to pay specie. The large receipts from Califor nia by the Star of the West see in to stiengthen the opinion of the friends of resumption in the propriety of tbe movement. fET" The subdivision of Teaas into two or more States is revived la tbe public journals of that State. No State ia the Cnion has increased iu population and wealth during the last few years more than Texas Her estimated population at thiatime amounts to more than half a million. ITT The New York Htrnhl says: -'Our city and State banks have just saved their necks by resuming specie paj men's. It is understood that certain members of the Legislature had in their portfolio* a series of ingenious racks, boot and tbomb screws. in tbe shape of bills, which were to be applied to the banks this winter." \?J~ I* Madrid, it Is reported that the Govern ment has sent orders to General Concha, Captain General of Cuba, to organize a body of infantry, with tbe necessary artillery, In order to be ready at a short notice to commence hostilities against Mexico. In the event of the present negotiations The Harts correspondent of tbe London Times, WTTlting on tbe gatb of November, says: 44 The Ia?t accounts from Mexico state that the eltnation of that country is snch that tbe French Charge d'Atliiires has resetted the French Ad miral on the station to send some ships of war to tbe Gulf of Mexico, for the protection of French ?objects.*' PERSONAL. ....Com Htringbam and Cant A M Pennock, V. 9.

Tbe correspondent of the New Y'ork Time*, writing from Aspinwall, gives the foi-lowing account of Walker's landing : Our first report was that the Fashion when tbe town hove in sight. ran in nnder a full head of ?team and anchored close to tbe point before Capt. Cbatard conidget his boats out to stop her. The infe-ence is that ?>e had no lime to prevent the landing of tbe men and arms But tb.s is not so 1 am assured by an officer of the British steamship Dee. that the Fashion was seen by tbe officers of the Saratoga tbe day before oil'the har bor ; that there was ample time while she was coming ia for the Saratoga to have hove her to with a swivel from one of her boats, and to have boarded her before she cot in Besides. Walker was two whole days fnndinj men. provision* and munitions of war by the boats of the steamer, while lying directly under the guns of tin* sloop of-war Wten the l)ee came into tbe harbor, Capt Chataid requested her master to an< hor in ?ide of the Saratoga. so that she might not be be tween his gnns and the Fashion, but no steps against the landing of either men <>c stores. As soon as i' was ascertained that tbe fillibus ters were routing iuto port, the people of Grey town sent a boat up the river to CohUi Kica, and also to waru the steamers and forts, but as Walk er'* expedition was already on its way into the river, by tl*e t'olorado, when he landed at Punta Arenas. It is not unlikely these despatches were intercepted by him Incase tuey Wtre not, the news must have reached San Jose de Costa Kica, by way of tbe Serapiqui Kiver, about tbe h November Commodore Paulding, who was here in the Fnited f'tait-s steam-frigate Wabash, appeared somewhat chagrined that Walker succeeded ia landing ?o easily, and at the request of Captain Cbatard steamed away Ust evening for Greytowu. 1 have considerable doubt, however, whether he will deem it his doty to interfere with any ^im migrant'' vessel coining into Grey town. if he finds her pa:>er? ail straight. About half an hour after Com Paulding sailed, desf>atches arrived here for him from the Commander of the United States steamer Fulton, now at Chiriqui Lagoon Tbe British llne-of-battlc profiler Brunswn k, ?ailed alxiut 0 o'clo* k this evening for Greytown Tbe Fashion has arrived JIM) tons of coal here, and will sail in a day or two for New Orleaus There were four small boats about Scott's ship yard, wbieh Walker had taken possession of The day the Fashion left, Walker had sent one of these boat* up the river r*an Juan, to endeavor to intercept the Costa Kicau mail boat, said to have on boa'd f&.UUU in money. Walker planted two of bis 4* lone star" flags over the buildings be occupied In Punta Arenas on landing, lie landed six Held pieces, and tbe men were daily drilling, each one with his rifle W bether Le took out these rifles with him I can not leaiti. When Locki idge ai>andoiied the river last Man b. he delivered over to the (ommander of the British frigate t'ossack. about three hun dred stand of arms, which were deposited witb Captain Scott, on Punta Arenas, for safe keeping. I undei stand these arms were still there when Walker landed, so that if be wanted them he undoubtedly appropriated them A letter from one of tbe oflb ers of the Fnited Sta'en sl<?np-of-war. to a fellow officer ou the United States steam frigate Wabash, says : 44 Walker has again landed at Gre>town His ?teamer. the Fashion, passed right under our ?tern There were only a few men visible on her deck While we were wondering who the devil ? he could lie, or what was ber errand, she hauled alongside an old hulk n?-ar Scott's place, and landed Walker and a large number of his follow ers Walker subsequently found one of our offi cer- on shore, gunning, when he peremptorily ordered him to go back to his ship The officer refused, saying he was an officer of the Fnited States Nav); whereupon Walker told him that if be did not go, he would compel him to leave. Theoffi cer finally did come Our fellows *av he ought to have refused to go, point blank, and tt.en If Waiker bad used violence we should have an excuse for pitching into him We aie afraid that Captain Cbatard will l>e court-martialed for not preventing \\ aiker from landiug.

The 44 Press Gang" on tik New Hali. ? Great is tho indignation being manifested by the members of the press entitled to seats around the old Hall of the Representatives, at tha idea of being thrust up ia a hen-coop of a gallery, far away from fncilitiaaof instant com munication with the honorable members, from whom, for ya?rs past, they hare been ifl the habit of obtaining much of the information on which their letter for the press are based If the reporters for the daily press of the eity and the Associated Press, are to be banished up into any such galleries, they will suffer under inconveniences which must present the news papers they represent from, as heretofore, in stantly accommodating the members in a hun dred ways, on call; as they, too, will be wholly out of the reach of honorable gentlemen here after. There are twenty or thirty seats aroand the back of the new Hall, we hear, placed therefor the accommodation of the reporters or those to whom they may be assigned by the House. In our judgment, it will be a great accommodation for the House itself at once to assign them to the representatives of the city and associated press, and those not required for their accom modation. to the representatives of other presses. We an: hardly ever five minutes in tho House llall without being visited by some member on business at our desk. or without receiving a mes sage or note on business, from some member. We should be greatly incommoded in l>eing con signed toa cock-loft from which to note the pro ceedings of the House for instant publication. To place us in any such position, would make our duty of rc)M>rting for instant publication an im possible one to be dischurgcd correctly; while it will, from incorrect and imperfect reports, give infinite annoyance to honorable members, how ever faithfully wo may labor to the contrary. The Police.?Often we hear comparisons drawn between the efficiency of the police of the cities of the United States and those of Eu rope. always invidious to the former. That the latter is more efficient than ours, may be true. If so, it is, in the main, the result of circumstanccs involved in our Government, which will prove effective in preventing our police system from becoming as perfect as that of monarchical governments while time lasts. The New York Times, in a late article ex plains those circumstances most graphically. We quote a portion of what it says on the sub ject, as embracing a satisfactory answer to the complaints to which we refer above?as follows ; 44 New Yokk and Pakis Police.?The letter from our correspondent 44 MalakolT," which we published on Monday, upon the organization and duties of the French police, points out the great and essential difference between the gm* d'arnie rie of New York and that of Pari*. The French serpent tie rille, or girde mvnictpml, is a man who lives apart from the people, and is not of the people?who has no aspiration*, and no sym pathies outside of his own rorj". In it alt his hopes and interest are centred. His great ambi tion. after earning his daily bread hi an honest way. is to earn his promotion. Ue looks upon the' |K>lice as his profession, and is proud or it. Every pains is taken bv his superiors to make him consider himself one of a class apart. He is not allowed to converse in the street* with civil ians, much less step into a '? grocery"' and take a drink. He is under military discipline, wears military uniform, is taught military drill, and let us add, that besides all this, or perhaps as ttie consequence of all this, be is a very respectable and very efficient public servant. 44 Now in almost every one of the foregoing par ticulars the New York policeman is the antipodes of his Parisian brother He is, in the majority of ca??s, appointed for political work of some sort rendered to somebody in otilce, and be looks upon his situation as one of the peiquisites to which his ''party'" is entitled. He gets it because he is a prominent member in a certain grade of the Eartj, and considers that he has already earned is salary by past services in politics, not that he is to earu it in thief-catching. His political char acter, in other words, his importance as a citizen is never laid aside nor lost sight of He wears uniform, to be sure, but he disdains to button it in military fashion, and exposes his suowy linen and its California diamond with as much osten tation as a railroad conductoi. To put one s hands in one's pockets when on duty is a grave military ctlence Your New Yoit policeman hardly ever puts them any where else. He smokes vigorously If he meets a friend, he takes a drink with him in a good-natured way, just as any other citizen might. He gossips pleasantly at corners of streets, and in door-ways, and " loafs'' with all the nonchalance of a man who knows the rights secured to him by the Consti tution, and \a1io means to exercise them He lives in but room, or his boarding-bouse. With his fa mil v. just as the rest of us do. 44 When we see him at his post, far from being a *?rim officer of the law, l're?h from parade and roll-call, he is ?iinply Tom, Di'-k. or Harry, of the Third or Sixth Ward, with whom we con sumed a mint julep last evening at the I'ewter Mug, and who probably intends next election to run tor a police justiceship, or a seat in the Le gislature. We clap him on the back, or punch bim in the ribs, as our manner may lie, and cra< k our joke with him. without being in the least awed by his rank He is not the seivant of the State, and would feel insulted If you called bim so He Is the nominee of his party, and to it lie feels be owe* Ui? flist allegiance. He considers it j point of bonor to use his office for the promo tion of its interests. The idea of living and dy ing ill the police never enters his head He is there simply a stepping-stone to Congress, or a foreign eml?as?v, or until be cmii get time to pursue his studies for admission to the bar. Iu shod, he is an excellent follow, with strong good sense, a kind heart, and full of an honest and honoiable desire to better his condition, but he is no more a policeman than Captain Rynders Is a statesman 4* If we are asked what conclusion we deduce froin all this, we have no hesitation in confessing that we think it is sheer waste of time to attempt to 1 ?etter our police by comparing them with that of Paris or London Police like the Knglish or French, we cannot have, and we may as well reconcile ourselves to the privatio'i at once, and the tea.son is very palpable INTERESTING VKuM ARIZONA. ? We below the following interesting extract from a letter received by the last overland mail from tho uow territory of Arizona. Mr. Ehrenberg, the writer, is an old resident of the Territory, and a reliable man. lie is also a mining engineer of high reputation : 44Tubac, Gausukn's P u a' it * i k . J 445R!d Octoiier, h57. { ??We have, of late, been seriously annoyed by the Apaches. Nearly all the animals belonging to citizens residing around Fort Huchanan have been driven ott by them. They are very iinpu deut, and commit their depredations fu broad daylight, talk to the people while they are driv ing off the animals, and always escape without being molested '?The other day they came within eight hun dred yards of the fort, and looked down upon it. 4'In order to bring them to terms the Govern ment ought to enlist I.OHO Pi mo* and I'apagos to accompany the military.

If this is not doue, they will surely break up our settlement here Forts ought to be established in the very heart of the Apache country, in the places lit, and used by them for cultivation If this is done, we will soon bring them to terms 44 L'ntil now, our mining establishments have not b?*?n molested by thein, and we are going ou in high glee "This is undoubtedly the richest ailver-mining country in the world If the United States will make just and liberal laws for us; give us protec tion; remove those trifling and unprofitable cus tom-houses on the frontier, at least for five or six years; procure us a transit through Sonora to Gua^mas, and hasten along the railroad to Cali fornia. this will Indeed lie a prosperous country, aud will astonish the world with its production of silver and copper.

The Senate Printing.?This morning a canons of tbe Democratic Senators unanimous ly nominated the Hon Wm A. Harris of Mis souri, the editor of the Union, as their candi date for the Senate printing. Their action was of coune harmonious, and indicates an election to-morrow, without opposition. Mr. Banks mag nanimously withdrew, for which he deeerves all praise. This is as it should hare been. The Umon ia the Democratic organ at the seat of the Fed eral Government; an institution necessary to the harmony and joint action of the party and essential to the maintenance of that par* ty s ascondancy The action of tbe Democracy of the Senate is a fitting rebuke to all those nominal Democratic presses which assailed the Union of late for the sake of plunder, from a disposition to be jealous of its national position as the organ of the Democracy of the Union, or because disposed to breed Democratic dissen sions for the advancement of the fortunes of individuals, which it is the province of the Na tional Democratic organ to discountenance, as well as to reflect the views of the Nationnl Democratic Administration on all important questions. The so unanimous nomination of the editor of the Union is an earnest of happy accord be tween President Buchanan and the dominant party of the Senate, on whose cordial and sin gle-minded support he must rely, in a great measure, for the entire success of bis Adminis tration that has opened so auspiciously. About to .Resign.?We have every reason to believe that Governor Robort J. Walker has determined to tender his resignation to the President. From what is said around us, we are inclined to think that his step in that di rection will be promptly followed by the publi cation of his manifesto in reply to the Kansas portion of the Annual Message, which, accord ing to the especial admirers of his recont course in opposition to the policy of the Democraoy with reference to the Lccompton Constitution? the Washington correspondents of the Republi can party press?he has been industriously preparing of late. We take it for granted that a sense of delicacy forbids him to make any such publication while nominally holding the office of Governor of the Territory, and that, having com pie ted the bomb-shell. aud entertain ing no idea of returning to Kansas, he resigns, that he may get a chance to fire it off as soon as possible. A BEArTiruL Work.?Mr. Edward Beyer, artist, has just got out his second volume of \ irginia \ iews ?elaborate engravings of the most remarkable scenery in the Old Do minion. The pictures in question are beauti fully drawn, and are faithful representations (as we can testify from personal knowledge) of more or less of the wonderful scenery they so faithfully portray. The engravings, too, are capitally executed The price of the work is j?er volume, each of the many pictures thereof being worth quite that money to any amateur or person of taste. To Virginians, justly proud of the good old mother of States and statesmen, we regard Mr. Beyer s work as being invaluable. He informs us that he pro poses to call on many gentlemen to afford them an opportunity to become subscribers for bis work. \\ e recommend him and his enterprise to the favorable consideration of all. An Infamous Falsrhooo ?It seems that after effecting his landing at San Juan del Norte. Walker assured an officer of the Sara toga that he had left the United States on his present expedition with the connivance and approbation of tbe Government; and the oppo sition press are already publishing his state ment to that end as involving pr^of of the fact, though none know better than they do that the unblushing promulgation of infamous false hoods is a systematic part of the filibuster s game, as was so glaringly manifested in his false reports, bulletins, Ac . and in the letter from his camp, written notoriously by himself, or under his immediate supervision The por tion of the Message referring to filibustering, embracing as it does, the most crushing argu ments against Walker and his schemes of rob bery. arson and murder, proves this statement of Walker to bo mendaciously falte. With their knowledge of the filibuster's invariable habit of scouting the truth when that course may serve his purposes, to find the opposition press professing to give credence to his state ment referred to above, simply proves the depth of infamy to which some of them will descend to make political capital. TlIK 1 UOM'Kl TS KOH Port'LAR AmI.sKJ) exts. All around us just now. the work of improve ment and preparation for the winter's amuse ments in Washington, is progressing with great spirit and industry. Carusi's Saloon has al ready been turned inside out, as it were. A large number of mechanics are converting it into a first class theatre, as we mentioned some time ago. The fine hall connected with the Star buildings has been taken by tbe enter prising and indefatigable Metxerott, who now has it crowded with workmen engaged in re modeling and refitting it throughout for a first class concert hall. In capacity it is larger than Carusi s was, we believc: while it is suj^rior to that ball for concert purposes. Its location is unsurpassed m Washington, and it is surely destined to become, in Metiierott's hands, the fashionable concert hall of tbe Federal Me tropolis. Naval Courts of Inqlirv ? Court No. I is yet occupied with the case of Lieut. Porter. Documentary evidence was submitted on both sides to-day. Before Court No. 2. tbe case of Commander Johnston was continued, and Rev. Mr. Russell and Capt. T. A. Domin were examined in be half of Johnston. In Court No. 3, the case of Commander John S. Chauncey was commenced. Hon. J. Coch rane, Hon. P. Phillips, and T. M. Blount, Esq. counsel for Chauncey. Lieuts J. 8. Taylor and R. T. Lewis were called as witnesses for Government, but both testified in favor of ap plicant. The defence of Capt. U. P. Levy, which was to have been read to-morrow before Court No. 3, will not be presented until Saturduy next. Senator Green's Speech was being lis tened to with groat attention by a crowded auditory in and around tbe Senate chamber to-day. Ilis political friends were highly de lighted with the force and perspicacity of his reply to the positions occupied by Senator Dou glas No |other Senator has a better oratorical manner, which, with the matter of bis effort, marks him already for one of the very ablest debaters of tbe body. The Exodus.?The removal of the parapher nalia of the House, yesterday, over to their new Hall, kept everybody employed under tbe body regularly, and m host employed for the occasion, exceedingly busy until a late hour last night. The regulars performed their task without much love in their labor; for they evi dently think, with unanimity, that time was not given by the House to make the change properly. The Paw ana Ship Canal.? Despatches have baon received at the Navy Department from Lieut. t>e Haven, commanding the schooner Variia, sent Mt to surrey the Atrolo and Tru ando rivers, with a view of ascertaining the feasibility of the proposed ship eanal that be hsul arrived at Carthagaaa (Not. 20) and was shortly to leave that part in furtherance of the purposes of his mission.

The said resolution was then adopted The pending resolution to print the President's Annual Message and accompanying documents was taken up. and Mr Green addressed the Senate in reply to the speech delivered some time since by Senator Douglas. The IlorsE met in their new Hall at the usual hour, and after prayer by the Re*. Mr. Carothera of the Presbyterian Church, the journal of the previous day's proceedings was read. The pending bill of Mr. Morrill to donate lands to the several States for agricultural and mechan ical educational purposes, was theu referred to the Public Lands Committee. The Chair then laid before the Ilonre various departmental reports and other communications, which were severally appropriately disposed of. Among them was a communication from many clergymen of various Protestant denominations, tendering their services to open the daily sessions of the House with prayer by turns, witnout pay. Mr. Clemens offered the usual resolution for drawing for seats in the Hall After some conversation and discussion? Mr. Jones, of Tenn., moved to lay it on the table; not agreed to. The ayes and noes having been called and re corded, ihe said resolution was agreed to. The members then vacated their seats, and the usual process of drawing for seats was gone through with, the members clustering arouud outside the bar.
