What s os* Mil * Mbat is A*oth*I Man's Poisoji.''?Mr Kob?rt J. Walker evi dently thought of little else hut preserving the eousistency <d hi* " record" in the adminis tration of his trast in Kansas. Subsequently he hru carried the ridiculous idea that one must be governed by like considerations in all possi ble combinations of circumstances. to the points of absurdity evinced iu his recent resignation manifesto wherein he virtually proclaims a predilection for the existence of civil war and other calamities dire, a.- a preferable alterna tive for aught in bis conduct that might possi sibly savor of inconsistency on his part. While he has in that way arrived at the point of strengthening the hands of the ad versaries of the Democratic party, with all his might and main, his co-laborer in that work, Senator Douglas. ha* reached it by a very different road, indeed?by utterly and flagrantly scouting his "record." Senator Green, in his late so able speech exhibited him as scouting his own Congressional record, eovering the entire period of his services in the National Legislature wherever he had occasion to vote or speak on point* wherein were involved questions identical, or even akin, to those involved in the question of the admis sion of Kansas on the Lecompton Constitution. Some of our cote mporaries arc already fish ing ap from his voluminous record, made out of Congress, treasures, in the way of showing that though apparently aiming to go precisely where Governor Walker is going so last.he pre fers to travel a ditTerent road to that end?any other than by the way of his "record." We quote from a speech delivered by hiai in Chi cago. early in June last, and published in the Chictgo Times of the Ifith of that month, the following excerpt, showing when taken in con nection with Senator Green's opposition ol' bis congressional inconsistency, that he is almost as badly bitten with a desire to be inconsistent, as Got. Walker to be confident. "Upon the Kansas question he had little Jo say. His opinion* on that qiiMtinn weir well known, and he Lad nothing to add. except that subsequent experience and reflection had con firmed him in the correctness of the judgment he had so often advanced in the Senate and before the people. ?' He spoke of the fairness and the justiceof the law, g?v mg the people an opportunity of express ing their ncnest convictions on the subject of slavery in a constitutional manner, by means of a constitutional convention ?ooii to meet, to decide that and all other important matters connected with the future of the new State of Kansas. The people of that beautiful Territory would t.oon speak pin the election of delegates to the conven tion ?Ed ] We wouid soon have, he had no doubt, a fiee and quiet expression of opinion, by means of theelective fran bise, from that silent but most certain weapon of a free people?the ballot-box Should the enemies of tuat mode of settling the much-vexed question of slavery in that Territory blindly and obstiaatelv refuse to exercise the rights assured them by the laws of Congress, upon their heads and theirs alone.will rest the responsibility For his part, he was sat isfied the Democratic party in Congress had done their duty, and he was equally well sat!*Med that the Democratic partv in ttie territory of Kansas would do theirs in a manner gratifying to the heart of every friend of the Constitution and the L'nion " For our part, we can only interpret the fact that these two distinguished gentlemen travel ?ucli signally different roads to the same point, to the probability that there is a 3ort of rivaly between them as to which .-ball get there first ?a Sort of " devil-take-the-hindmost" rivalry. Tub R espoNse.?Wc have searched our Northern exchanges for a fortnight past, with care, in order to note the effect ot the positions assumed by Senator Douglas and the argumen tation of his late spceeh upon th<- popular mind of the region to whieh it woa especially ad dressed. The result of our investigation is, that we hare not seen a line in approbation of bis course in any nominal Democratic journal that had not previously gone off with Messrs. Stanton and Walker This is positively true. So far as the effect ol his speech on the North ern Democratic popular mind Is concerned, therefore, the reader may rest assured -if tl.e tone of the Northern Democratic press be a criterion on which one 10/13' safely venture to form an opinion?the speech of Senator Doug las has fallen powerless. On the other hand, the Republican party press can publish just now concerning little else. Their editorial and news columns are devoted almost entirely to praise* of his effort, anecdote* of bis sayings, and prognostications of bis future course, ail of which g<? to .-how that be is to become a very great prophet in deed in thnr Israel. All this is in excellent keeping with the fact that the Republican members of Congre?? have already subscribed lor one hundred thousand copies of his speech, while he almost aloce ot the Democrats ol either House have concluded to give it circula tion and notoriety under the member s frank. These f-cts are significant - they bear out forci bly, our repeatedly expressed opinions that its only effect on the political future of the country will be to strengthen the cau?e of the dire foes of the Democratic party?and that such is the opinion of the almost unanimous trae Democ racy t>f the North As for the South, we are very ture that not a -iugle newspaper in that section of either party has expressed approba tion of its positions?not one Tnt OfERATMS Akainkt tiik Flokida I.xiuass ?The War Department have advices from Fort Brooke to the ?th instant, from Col.

Hall Thk Wheei. with is the Wheel ?Of late, we have repeatedly bad occasion to expose the sinister character of the op|suition Post Office war being waged in Philadelphia ; and as it is very certain that those at the bottom of it are drumming among the members of Congress to induce that l?ody to reverse its previous deci sion on the question we quote n late number of the I'e//Htyivaniun, exposing the sinister character of their labors to that end as fol lows : Cejialu iainl speculators and decayed archi tects in our city are busily employed in an at tempt to induce the Postmaster General to dis continue work on f|?e site of the new Post Office to ij** erected in our city, and also to change, if possible, the position of the same from where It has located to the Custom House on 4'best nut street, al>ove Fourth street Theprebxt fir this movement is, that the self, ted site is away I'OIH the cent re of the city, and therefore not suit i able for |H>st office purposes, hut the real obje? t to locate the building in the Immediate neigh bor of certain properties Iteloug to the priu.e movers iu this scheme, and thus enhance their value. " We have lief.,re shown that the present Kile selected tor a Post Office, is strictly In ti.e "'V Centre of the ?ity. that it is inclose piox imity to tbe Merchants' Ijxchangeand the Banks; that all the heavy impoitiug and jobbing houses are w ithin a few squares ; that the agencies of all the iiianurarturiuu establishments are located within a few minutes walk of this point ; that all the newspaper offices are situated east of Fourth . and south of Chestnut streets; that seven eighths ! of the Insurance Companies are within four squares of Second ai.d Gold streets, that all the Broker's offices are within pistol shot, and, in fact, that the whole evidence points to this uei^h itoihood as the place of all others most convenient for the busiue?s men of this city. These facts cannot ??? overthrow n, nor will it >*? denied that this particular (siint can l?e reached more readily than any other |>oiut iu the city, on account of it oeing the terminus of the different lines of omni buses running to aud fro within its limits. Hut apart fiom this, the Sub-Post Office system now iu o|w-ratiou renders it a matter of comparative inditle.euce to the masses of our |K>pulatii>n where the central office is located. Under the present system, the letters arriving are put into the hands of those to whom they are directed five times each day, while each division of the city has a sub-office which the people can reach in' a few minutes The location of the general office. tbere foie, is only important to those who have heavy arid constant postal communication, and we have sh.-wn that tbe present aite is most admirabk adojited for that purpose." ' Mr. Biolkk s Sncet'lf ?Since penning tho brief article elsewhere iu tint ?Si,t> to-day, con cerning the remarkable difference between the ways by which Governor Walker and Senator Douglas apparently seek to reach the common end of opposition to the Democratic party on the Kansas question, we find that Senator Big ler devoted much of his great and irn|>ortant speech of yesterday to the work of exposing the obstacles in the shape of stump - record'' which the distinguuhed Senator from Illinois some time since pluced in the path he has chosen to take To a gentleman not determined to reach his end in spite of all obstacles, the tasktf dodging around some of them, crawling under others, and scrambling over tbe rest, would be appalling, indeed How difficult to be acaomplished so plausibly as that the world oannot appreciate the extra ordinary altitudes of statesmanship necessary in so doing. Senator Bigler made so plain yes ter lar, that all who run may read Iliseflort will long be remembered by all who heard it, as a warning to all American statesmen who may fancy that tbe reputation of a name may be re lied on to shield otto from the disapprobation of the Democratic parly, thut surely follows all atbuipi* to u*c tbe influence ef that name? made influential only through Democratic fa vor?for the benefit of the enemies of the Dem ocratic cause. it.

Is thk Senate, yesterday, after we went to pre**, Mr. Bigler continued his speech In reply to the late effort of Senator Douglas against the policy of the President and the Democratic part/ upon the Kansas question. At tbe conclusion of bis main speech an Interlocutory debate took place between Senator B and Senator Douglas, which occupied the Senate until the subject was postponed for tbe day, Senator Stuart having the floor for a speech upon it at 1 p. in. to day. On motion of Mr. Iverkon, tbey next resumed the consideration of the House lull to ani'-nd the act of tbe last session regulating the compensa tion of n?eml?ers of Congress, to which several amendments were offered, yrhlch were discussed by Messrs. Ivervou, Bavaid, Fcssenden ar.d others, until the said bill was passed without amendment; when tbey adjourned. In thk Horse, tbe Treasury-note bill was fur ther debated in Committee of tbe Whole on the state of the l*nlon, by Messrs Abbott. Letcher, Banks, Lovejoy, Campl?ell of Ohio, Quitman, and Boyce, uutll the committee rose?Mi . Grow being next entitled to the Moor. Mr. Warren asked leave to intioducv the fol lowing resolution: Whereas it appears from the proclamation of Brigbam Young, late Governor of the Territory of Ltab, as also fiom the message of the Presi dent of tbe United States, that said Territory is now in open rebellion to the Government of the United States: therefore, Resolvtd, That the Committee on Territories be instructed to report on the facts, and inquire Into tbe propriety of excluding from a seat upon this floor tbe Delegate from that Territory. Mr. Banks objected, and tbe resolution was not received. Shortly afterwards the House adjourned. Proceedings of To-day. In ihb Senate, to-day, Mr Maaou reported, ftom the Foreign Attaint Committee, a hill for the relief of Sr. Achota; referred. Various petitions, from Tennessee, Illinois ai.d elsewheie, for the opening of a road to and through Arizona, were presented and referred Mr Johnson, of Tennessee, introduced a bill to give every head of a family who will settle on and cultivate it. itid acres of the public domain Much other usual morning business was trans acted ere the hour for again taking up the spe cial oider arrivtd, when the pending proposition to print the Message and accompanying docu ments having l?eeu taken up. Mr Stuart waived bis right to the floor in lavor of Mr Fitch, who was delivering a powerful speech in favor of the President's policy with reference to the ncce pi anc.e to the Lecoiupton Constitution for Congress, when the Star went to press. In thk Mouse, after the reading of the jour nal, Mr biddings was, on motion, discharged from further service on the Claims Committee, on account of ill health. A resolution was passed to close the debate on the Treasury note Lill when next taken up in t'ouiOilttee of tbe Whole, in two hours tbe ? after, and to limit the general debate upon it to twenty minutes speeches Toey next went into Committee, (Mr Phelps again in the Chair,) wherein? Mr. Jones, of Pa . moved to postpone the fur ther consideration of the House Treasury Note bill, and take up in its stead the bill to the same end received on the day before from the Senate, which elicited much conversational debate. Tbe said motion was agreed to. The said Senate bill having been taken up? Mr. Grow addressed the Committee at length against it, in a political spcech. PERSONAL. ....

The Albany Knickerbocker denies the commonly received statement that the sculptor, Crawford, was a native American, and at tbe same time says: "We know tbat hewasa native of Ireland, and emigrated with his parents at an early age (alwut seven years) from Ballyshannon, in tne county of Donegal, and tbe writer of this was well ac quainted with his father in tbe city of New York thirty years ago.

She was thrown open to tbe public for two days, during her stay in the Mersey, and admiring crowds availed themselves of tbe opportunity of inspect ing tbe noble vessel. Tbe Persia was moored in the Immediate vicinity of the Adriatic, thus af fording a favorable opportunity for contrasting the two "cracks." The Loudon Time*, describ ing her arrival, says; "Hbe appeared to be under easy steam, going at tbe rate if nine knots au horn , and yet, so keen and ttoe are her lines, there was scarcely a ripple perceptible at the cutwater, while aft there was au entire absence of tbat turmoil of waters which distinguishes the "sea bruisers," tbe pet models of the old school of naval architecture, in their laborsome progress at sea. On approaching tbe Sloyne the Adriatic displayed tbe Knglisb en sign, and saluted tbe Cuuard steamers Canada and Peraia, a compliment which waa promptly returned by each of these fine vessels, each of wblch had the United States' ensign at the fore. "Viewed from the piers, the Adriatic appeared to ua less graceful on the water than the Persia, and differs but little from the other steamers be longing to the Colliiia line, having tbe same up light stem and neatly rounder stern.
