The Union of yesterday reprints 4i General Cass's letter in reply to Gov. Walker, because, by an inadvertence equally mortifying and in excusable. it was allowed to appear in yester day's Union with many typographical errors." As we copied this letter from the Union with tbe above errors, we reprint it also as corrected l.ETTEB OF ACCIPTAXCI. Dipartmkst or Stati. \ Washington. Dec. W. 1-57. $ SU? : On Wednesday last 1 received your com munication of the 16th inst , tendering your res ignation as governor of Kansas This ie*ig nation is accompanied by u long argument on tbe afiair* of that Territory generally, to which, you are well aware, it would be improper for tbe department to reply. If any oth< er of the government who feels himself constrained to re fuse i>l?'dieiire to the instructions of the presi dent should pursue this unusual course, and thus pbare on the tiles of (he appropriate depart ment a criticism on the policy of the admlnistra tion. uo person knov*? better th.tu yourself to what consequence* this might lead. The de partment must either cause charges and argu ments at ainst the President to be filed among the public archives of the country without con tradiction or reply, or it must spend the time which ought to be devoted to the public service 111 controversies with ?ul>ord!nate officers who may disapprove the President's policy. Whilst duty, therefore, foibids me to enter into a con troversial discussion with you on tbe various topics embraced by your argumeut, it Is proper that 1 should make a remark upon a single point. You state that the President has changed his policy in regard to Kansas. And why this alle gation? Simply because the conventicn of Kan sas having, in the exercise of the right >?elonglng to them, decided that they would not submit the whole constitution to the people, although they have submitted the all-important and dan gerous question of slavery, which threatened to convulse the Union, and was alone prominent In tbe minds of the people throughout every State, he bad not treated the submission of this moment ous question as a mere nullity. I nder these eircumstaiu?*s. it was bis impera tive duty, and this in strict conformity- with pre vious instructions, to tak?? care that a fair election should be held on this vital question, and thus give peace to the Union. Had he acted in any other manner, merely because be preferred the submission of the constitution generally to the people, bis responsibility would have Itren of the gravest character. He never entertain'<1 or ex pressed the opinion that the convention were bound to submit any portion of tbe constitution to tbe people, except the question of slavery, much less that tbe otbei portions of tii?constitution would be invalid without such a submission Had he entertained such an opinion this would have been in opposition to the numerous prece dents wbich have ocrurred since the adoption of tbe federal constitution by the different States. The question of slavery was the all-absorbing nest ion. and you were'sent to Kansas with the ull confidence of the President to carry out the principles of the Kansas-Nebraska act. With the question whether Kansas was to be a free or slave State you were not to interfere. You were to secure to the people of Kansas a free and fair election to decide this question for themselves The President was, therefore, happy to learn from jour despatch to tbi* department of tbe 15th of July la-?t that in all your speeches you had refrained from expressing any opinion as to whether Kansas should be a slave or a free State I aui instructed to inform yon that your resig nation of the office of Governor of Kansas has been accepted. 1 am. sir, your obedient servant, Lewis Cass.

Governor Walker's Logic sorely puzzles us. notwithstanding our great experience in the sublime art of looking deep into the millstones of politicians. We thought no other person oould more quick 1 j discorer than oarself the difference twixt tweedle dam and tweedle dee. If. however, that man lives who can make common sense out of the Governor's learned and polemical disquisition on the essence and philosophy of sovereignty, we admit that we are mentally blind as a bat. in comparison to him. His letter of resignation we regard as oae of those rare productions which, the more we study and ponder over it, the more are we per plexed to ascertain the author's meaning. But in these days, when many believe that the Presidential tenure is limited to four years only, and the country is so replete with patri otic gentlemen, perhaps we ought not to be surprised at the discoveries made by the Got* ernor of the unconstitutionality of the action of former Congresses, and that " the Government, Constitution and laws of the United States are not sovereign." But this is no original idea; Senators Sum ner. Seward and Hale, and Mr. Greeley, were certainly far ahead of Governor Walker in pro claiming a higher law than the Constitution of their country. They are in advancc of him, and all the thunder he can filch from them will not amount to the crack of that Sharp's rifle subscribed by Miss Dutton. - '?Misery makes men acquainted with strange bed-lellows," and so does ambition. Who would have thought to find the Hon. R. J. \\ alker. the sympathizer and co-laborer, with such politicians as Horace Greeley A Co.; and that too. on a mere abstraction But, it is not worthy either of the Star or the Governor to deal in inuendoes. when there are facts aud arguments to faco. lla pleads in defence of his present position that the doctrine contained in his letter of resignation is only a reiteration of the principles averred in hi* Texas letter of 1S33, and in his inaugural to the people of Kansas in 18o7. This we are not disposed to ijuestion; our intontion is merely to exaiukfe his position, and to show our fellow-citizens? the sovereign*?whether it is tenable or not, and to this end we have re-read hi.* letter with great care and have come to the conclusion that his arguments would have been irrefuta ble. were it not that they hud been drawn from false premises ! He says of sovereignty that " it grant? pow ers, but not sovereign powers." hence '? the gov ernment, constitution and laws of the United States are not sovereign, but only the dele gated powers of sovereignty." Now. as sov ereignty in the abstract is simply "power," how can that which i? an emanation from it difter in its nature ? How can it differ cxcept in intensity or degree ' If what he is pleased to term the ' delegated power of sovereignty" is not sovereign, pray tell us what is? His reasoning amount* to this only?the stream if not the spring, nor the spring the stream, and we must not confound the one with the other, although the one is from the other, and they l>oth are the same water. He urges that " the constitution of the United States is the supreme law. and obligatory as such, and yet that it is not sovereign, but an act of sovereignty, because all laws imply law makers. Just, we suppose, as an egg implies the hen that laid it; or as the hen implies the eSS fr?m which she was hatched ; but a hen is not an egg. nor is an egg a hen, aud we should be careful not to mistake the one for the other, the sovereign for the delegate or the delegate for the sovereign. Now. the power of the hen to lay an egg is sovereign, immutable and indi visible. to wit: a power which cannot be dele gated. And so the jwwer of the egg to produce a chicken is sovereign and inalienable?but wc must not mistake the hen ami the egg for sov ereignty, but only as acts of sovereignty. The Government of the Uuited Stated is a the Constitution is a "power," and tne laws are a ' power,' which the Governor saj*s, are not sovereign, and yet that "sover eignty is the highest political power." It skeins to us. that to preserve his consistency, he should have said, sovereignty is no power at all. but only the source or power. This idea of sovereignty however, is a mere abstraction?there is nothing practical in it. and the reasoning in defence of it, is so circui tous. that after h?,urs of hard study, we find oarself where westarted. nor do we believeany furiberprogress can be made in the elucidation of the subject, until the grave question of pri ority is settled as to whether the sovereignty of the hen or the egg was fiist iu the older of creation, if it should be decided in favor of the egg. we all have reason to be thankful that the first chicken was not a rooster. A Gravk Orrcxi'B.?If we mistake not for a citizen of or resident in the United States to in tertere to defeat the consummation by a for eign government of a treaty made with this Government is a grave misdemeanor, or under our laws liable to heavy punishment. That the writer of the letter that will be found be low has rendered himself amenable to tho pen alties to the act to prevent such interference there can be no doubt. He has notoriously been a mischi ef maker in our land ever since seeking it as a refuge from th?. vcngeanco of his own Government?Spain While we shall ever be glad to hare the United States remain an asylum for the oppressed of every civilized nation, we are well aware that no more trou blesome customers ever came among us from abroad thau many of tho class driven to our shores on account of political offences This Senor Goicuria is a fair specimen of the offensive ones of that class He has a finger in every passing pie, and has set up as a righter of everybody s wrongs?white and black He is evidently but a pecuniary speculator in the science of revolution, and if duly punished for his offence against United States law involved in the following missive from his pen, lately published in the New York papers, will enjoy the sympathy of none, anywhere Jerez to whom it is written, is one of the beads of'the Nicaraguan Government: I im IjKttli fihx GoicraiA , New Y ork, Nov. 00, lo57 . >Hor /) Jerez: K?teem?d (ineeral In the beginning of October, I sent you another letter v.?

Brilliant Feat or a Wasiuxotoxian.?By a late arrival we have received news from the United States Squadron on the Coast of Africa, and are gratified at finding honorable mention of a gallant fellow townsman. Early in November tho Sloop-of-war Dale, I Commander McBlair, was lying at the tnouth of the Congo river, whon private information was obtained of the presence of an Atuorican slaver up the river Lieut. T. Lee Walker of the Dale volunteered to load an expedition, and in the launch, with a crew of IH men, pene trated to Pun to da Lenha. thirty miles from the moulh of tho river, surprised tho s'aver at hor mooring?, got her under weij;b. navigated safe ly through the shoals of tho Congo, and in thir ty-six hours from the time of leaving had her at anchor under the guns of the Dale, with the captain and crow in confinement.

Every person entitled to vote on the c?nstitutiou ought to have safe access to the polls, and to be free from any restraints whatever in tho exorcise of the elective franchise. He is instructed further that the members ot the Territorial Legislature in session, arc entitlod to be secure and free in their delibcr tions. Its rightful action must also be re spected. Should it authorise an election by the people for any purpose, this election should be held without interruption, no less than those authorized by tho convention.
