WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. The Manifesto.?Since penning our brief article published yesterday, of the tenor of Governor Walker"* curious pronuncismcnto, we have taken occasion to give it another and careful reading. The most striking impres sion it has made on us is the fact that it proves the truth of the adage that when men get bit ten with the Presidential mania, they imincdi atcly go crajy over the notion of the import ance of their own individual opinion* and views. No perfectly sane man of any party can study his manifesto who knows the details of his course in Kansas, without coming to the conclusion that the principle on which bo acted was. that tha risk of civil war and every other public calamity dire, were mere bagatelle*, compared with the matter of preserving his in dividual consistency. He tells the world, in effcct, that the Constitution of the I nite l States itself is unconstitutional; insomuch cs it vaj not submitted to a popular vote before its adop tion; and that every State constitution put in operation without being previously so submit ted. is in flagrant violation of fundamental national law, and therefore unconstitutional. And. indeed, that all law in this country is illegal, because he disputes the legality of everything of the sort that may not have been submitted to a popular vote before going into operation. Though not his words, these are but legitimate deductions from his premises and arguments, the former being squared with quixotic nicety with an old speech of his deliv ered in l&HO. hi? never-to-be-forgotten Tcxa-1 letter, his Kansa.-> Inaugural, and different Kansas addre.?:>c*. the positions of which he evidently regarded a? being more imjiortaiit to be kept in view in his administration of the affairsof the Territory, than the instructions of the President, the pith of which was that he should interfere neither for nor a-'.-iinst slavery. No une can realire the intensity of his prag matical self imi?ortaut-e without reading hi* references to his lormer sj?eeehes, letter". Jkc.. which be evidently regards a-* higher authority in the s-ience of 'iwverument, than aught else. In his iatens -exertions to prove that he has been consistent with Lis record made years ago. he overlooks the fact of his admission of gross inconsistency with his ]>ositi?ns in the Territory bef-re making up his mind that the pledges of his so oft-rei'erred-to inaugural, nnde it his duty to turn Topeka-ite when he found that lie could not dict.ite to the Lecompt^n Convention in all things It will l>e remembered that he found no fault whatever with the apportion meet for the Convention or the manner in which it# member? were chosen?saw no uncon stitutionality. irresrularity or outr?:re of popu lar sovereignty in anything connected with the Convention?sufficient to justify him in uttering a word of disapprobation, until it declined to make good hie personal pledges to the Topeka ites. one of which justified rebellion in promii ing to join the people?i. e. the Abolitionist-?in making a revolution in case what be deemed the proper course f >r the Convention to pur-ue wai not acquiesced in by that bod v. liut our limits will not permit us to criticise his extraordinary pr -nunciauiento further to day so full of new readings of the theory of sovereignty, and absolute plump and entire de nials of the legality of delegated authority in any case whatever. a? it i-: as well as of egotism to the extent of urging tint for the Convention to refuse to carry out the doctrines of hi.- record from ./ to the date i?f bis appointment to govern Kansas, was sufficient to justify hirn in scouting the letter and spirit of his instructions not to interfere for or against slavery, or, in deed. to shape the will of the people of Kan1 is on any point u[>on which, under Uio provisions of the Kansas-Nebraska act it wa? their prov ince alone to decide primarily or thr ugh tb'S3 to whom they delegated the necessary authority.

IJoforc Court No. 1. to-day, Commodore Reed was examined in Government behulf in the ca.<e of ex-Com mander Lecompt. Court No. 2 was waiting for testimony in the case of Cemmander Johnston. Ilis defence is to be read on Monday, at 11 a. m.

F Butler, Esq., of New York The Naval Court* aro now about finishing their protracted labors, and expect to be through in the early part of next week. Tiie Treasury Note Law.?It is very clear from yesterday 's proceedings of the Senate, and their determination to meet to-day, that the majority do not intend to adjourn to-day with out having passed the Treasury note bill, which bids fair to become a law ere Congress adjourns over, according to custom, for the Christmas holidays Another Dirim'tast for tub hosor ok be isg Ssxator Dot-olas's Fii.b Leader.?The Towanda (I'a.) liiyorler, the special organ of the Hon. (ialusha A. Grow, insists that Senator Douglas in his late memorable speech, merely argues in favor of the correctness of the posi tions of the spccch of that gentleman (Mr. G.) delivered on the 4th of March, 1806. This claim means that the Republicans regard fc'on ator Douglas as having mounted upon their platform. Tun Respouse.?We havo every reason now to believe, that if but by way ot' preventing the political opponents of the Democracy from nr gu ng that the Administration cannot success fully reply to the manifesto of Gov. Walker, he will, perhaps, to-day receive an appropriate response to his missive from the Secretary of State.
