Thw sun chines brightly. *?'??* o^b^o** the horizon. and the *tmo*fcfere is as balmy as that of a spring morning. Our population, resident and transient, ar? All on the streets, parsing fn?ui house to hooa*. the Mt-upffet* of which have throwttopen their doors for the re ception of their friends ; nil having first paW their respect* to the President at the Kmcu live Mansion, and then to inost of the Heads of Departments, who welcomed all. citirens or strangers, complimenting them with a call and the oongratttlations of the season. Pennsyl vania avenue never before wore an air so l?ril-_ liant." Bright and showy equipages are dash ing. an we write, hither and thither over it. and its sunny sidewalk is literally covered with thousands of pedestrians of both sexes, all in 4 best bib and tucker," wearing smiles of joy ous festivity upon their countenances?being, indeed, evidently as happy as even such an oc casion justified At II a in., the usual Diplomatic roeeptior, and that of the Justices of the Supreme Court of the I'nited States, took place All the For eign Ministers. Charges, Attaches of Foreign Legations of all grades, with the ladies of their respectii ehouseholds, now in Washington, were of course there Their various uniforms and elegant equipages made the scene upon the great north portico of the Mansion, as they suc cessively reached it, a brilliant one. Within, when the company described above were assem bled to greet the distinguished and dignified Chief Magistrate of the I'nited States, by whom they were cordially and frankly received, the s:ene wa< eminently imposing. At noon, the great gates of the grounds sur rounding the mansion were duly thrown open, and the impatient crowd that had long been waiting to obtain early entrance rushed up to the vestibule arranged for their admittance, and at once pouring into the mansion, for nearly two hours, the stream of thousands on thousands, some on foot and others alighting from carriages, was swept five or six abreast, gradually into the entrance hall of the man sion, where tbe Marine Band in full regalia, were as usual, discour'iog their best music, from thence into the parlor. where all were separately introduced to President Buchanan, and tbe ladies to his accomplished and dig nified niece, the mistress of the household Thence, the pressure of others entering, swept the human wave into the vast and gorgeous j 1 Ea~t Room." Irom whence, after remaining at will, they proceeded to the passage by which their exit was made from the mansion In the ' East Room" the visitor for the first time had an opportunity to comprehend the extent of the crowd of which he formed an integer On the whole, the day was a most int? resting and ex citing one, and will long be remembered as perhaps the gayest New Year's occasion so far occurring in the Federal Metropolis. Their Mock Heroics.?The New York Tunc* contains an exposition of the sillines*. of tbe mock heroics in which those sympathizing with the filibusters have indulged on account of the extradition of Walker and his marau ders, well worth attention. Who doubts that Walker escaped from the United States in gross violation of law ' What honest man, even though he desires the acquisition of Central America by our fellow citizens, is not aware that Walker's former career in Nicaragua was one to cause true chivalry to blush, humanity to shed tears, and the spirit of hearty, honest, true Americanism, to hide its face in shame on account of the heinous crimes against life, lib erty and property committed by Walker and bis aiders and abettors hi re and there, in its name ' What man is there, of common sense, who does not realize that while none but the (?ovcriimentof the Teriitory said to have been iux aded by CoUiiuodore Paulding has aright to complain ot his act, that Government and I'l e will hail what Commodore Paulding has done as an earuest that the l uited States mean in good faith, in honest truth all that the President takes 'casion to say in his annual message on the -ubject of filibustering ' We quote from the article referred to above in the Time*. as follow* : '?The seizure was made upon the territory of a foreign Power The case was preci*elythe same as if an American official weie t<> pursiiea crim inal into Canada and llieti arrest him and tiring him l?a< k Within the jm isdictioli of the Uovern uicnt whose law* he hail violated. 11? every Mich ? ase the I'owei wIkhp dominions are thus Inva ded, has a valid ground of complaint, fjie.it Itritain, in the case supposed, Would unques tionably demand retire-,., from the oticiiding party tor mj. It a trespass upon her sovereignty Hut we do not vcrv well see how the part) arreted could ava.I himself of this violation of international i IW. to secure immunity from trial and from punishment if convlc cd No wrong had l?een done to hihi directly. He had placcd himsHl I under the protection of a foreign power, and might, perhaps, complain if that Power nes/lect cd to enforce it* own sovereign rights and thus | come to his assistance. Hut we do not see how , he could. at any bar, plead the illegality of his I seizure a* a detent e ajjainst the crimes for which lie might Ik* brought to trial. Nor is it any mo e ? oiici val.le that. i ii such a fi?f. the (.overtitm-nt in whose nam" ihc a- re?? might tie made, should repudiate and disavow it, except to satisfy the Power against whom alone the wrong had hen dire* ted It ? mild not object to having theerim- I mat within it* jurisdiction, unless indeed it sym pathized with hiscrim" ?' In 'he present case there is no doubt that t'uiuiii'idoie Paulding violated the sovereignty, by trespassing n|ion the jurisdiction of the Ite piihlic. of Nicaragua. He had no ri-^ht to invade the M>il of thai country, for tlie purpose even of arresting a fur itive from American justice. Me had no more right to capture Walker at Poiqi Arenas than the city police had to arrest Hrker njion the high sc.is for the murder of Poole. And if the government of Nicaragua Were, to make complaint of this trespasa, she would he entitled to ledies* and reparation at the hands of the I nit*d r*?nie* Our Government, in that case, could not avoid the duty of apologizing for tlie wrong and tendering any prop* r satisfaction, ex tending perhaps even to the punishment of the ofli- er l>y whom it had lieen committed. ??Of c ourse no sncli complaint hat been, or will he made Instead of resenting the Invasion of her t< rritory. \i<aragua will thank us for reliev ing it from an enemy whom the lax administ a thni of oui laws had permitted to land there Stko.xu Thocuutm.?John \'au Burcn is a man of pungent thought, if such a man exists His s|*ee<*h?s are always replete with strong points well put to influence the mind of the people None of his never-to-be-forgotten forensic efforts wero more remarkable in that way than his speech delivered a few nights ago at the great Democratic meeting Id Tammany Hall John undertook a defence of the Kansas policy of President Buchanan, and made clean work of it. His speech, for the space it occu pies in the Albany Arftu, wherein we read it, ieas conclusive an effort as we ever read We regret m re than we can express, our inability t? transfer the whole of it to the Star'1* co'? umns. The following brief extract, however, will suffice to give the reader some idea of the terseness and force of his reasoning : Pre*h|..?i ftiichaiian says thai, according to his count ruction of the Nebraska bill and the Cla^in ii.iti platform, the convention that met In Kansas to frame a constitution was bound to submit to a practical vote the question whether Kansas should or ahould not have slavery In that re ft "*'#t,l,e President ditlers diametrically from the feouth, with the letter of Senator Hunter, with ? JtOeison Davis?for they claim that I be con vention had absolute power to dispose of this fjueatlon for themselves Tbe President says that his unde standing was that that question was not to lie decided by the convention, hut was to lie disposed of by a duct vote of ihe people- and he also ?ays that the convention proposed to ?i|b i mil that question to a direct vote or the people, I aud they weir lo li?vc a chance to determiue the j great question ie*j , dim; this domestic imditutirn for il.. iioi lvcs The President is thus strictly Within his pledge* itliil I he pledges of ||ir N rbra* Ita bill And when rhis question Is decided in this way. Ihe P<ekid?nt itaya there Is nothing ?n the rest of I tic constitution.'or In the fact that the convention omitted to submit It to the popular vote, to authorize Congress to reject it when it may be presented to them. II* does not say that he wishes the convention had submitted the, whole) tUM be took it for granted that they would mUpIt the. whole of it to the people; and he viv* tfcat that wilt Ik- the course to pursue hereafter, ii? the formation of other Territorial ? (roviTiinitutifMA rtieir change into State govern*'T mentk Bnt the kill I in relation to Kansas wan I ??ilea! upon the subject; there wai nothing ln "?? Cincinnati platform that reaulres more than that, the iiuenllon of slavery ?haii be submitted t<> the people T he President says that if the constitn tion formed by the convention in Knn*a? "Lould be adopted by Confess. and Kansas I* admitted into the Union under that constitution, they \*-U 1 then l>e in a position to decide their inslltutioft* for themselves. and change them every tlve day* in the week, if they should think proper todo so. without disturbing the other thirty-one State* in the Confederacy Now, I <ay ibat is wise, that is jn?t. that i? statesmanlike, and no matter what may have he%n the opinions of any man in regard to the proprie ty of submitting the whole Constttntion to the people, Its not t?eing done does not authorize any man, least of all in the Democratic party, toei cite this torrent of abuse and calumny against the President. (Cheers and applause] I have not one unkind word to say of Senator Douglas I admire hi* ability. 1 respect his statement that he has not joined the Republicans; but I pre sume that be will not deny that the Republicans have joined him [daughter and applause.J Gentleman, J do not speak entirely without the book. I read to-day in the New York Tribune this extraordinary statement on the Itith of IV ceml>er, 1*57: "Our Washington advices report n full and frank conference tietween Senator Douglas and leading Republican* on the latest aspect of the Kansas nil urw." A full conference between Senator Douglas and lending Republicans on the Kansas affairs ; You and I never had a conference with Republicans on any affair?(laughter)?least of all on this, which is so important to the Democratic jmity. Hut one word further. The Tribune says : 44 The results were mutually satisfactory." A Voice?44 O l.ord, save us front the Republi cans.(Daughter! Mr Van Buren?The results of the conference between Senator Douglas and leading Republi cans were mutual Iy satisfactory ! \V hatever con ference we have luid with them, certainly we have never had one that was 44 satisfactory'* to us I trust Senator Douglas will avail himself of an early occasion tosct hitn?c!f tight in regard to the correctness of that statement. The Supbristrndkht <>r Fort Uiuglev a.nd Sut'Ttt Pass Wagon* Road.?This gentle man. Mr. W II Nobles, in rocent publications in Minnesota papers, takes occasion to arraign the Washington Star for jointing out the fact that he is interested in the operations of the Dacotah Land Company, along tho route of the road be has been charged by the Government with the duty of locating lie denies the fact, and says that, while he had nothing to do with their speculations, the fact that the Company has located cities, towns, Ac , along the route of the road located by him long before, is a high compliment to the skill, Ac., with which he has discharged the public duties devolved on him. This is all bosh We have open beforo us a copy of the Laws of Minnesota, and at page 336 find "An act to incorporate the Dacotah Land Company," approved by Gov Medary July 22, 1857. with the name of Wm. H. Nobles first on the list of its corporators Though Mr. Nobles with his party wintered on his line of operations before the date of the passage of this act. it is uot truo that he had located his work before that date. So. after he thus became atvincor porator of the Company that mado the selec tions of the land against which tLc people of the region complain, he mado the location against which they aomplain even more strenu ously, in view of those selections. Agnin. we find in the same volume (of Min nesota Laws. at. page 29P?) an act establishing certain ferries. 4c , wherein, in the seventh section. Mr. Wm. II. Nobles again figures with Joseph H. Brown as proprietors to whom the Minnesota Legislature donated the privilege of maintaining ferries " across the Sioux river, the James river, and the Missouri river, where the Government road from Fort Ridgely to the South Pass crosses said rivers, for the term of twenty years: and no ferry shall be estab lished on either of the said rivers, within two miles above or below said ferries, for the period aforesaid.*' Oti the whole, su^b operations in feme* and land companies along the road Mr. Nobles was charged by the Government herewith the duty locating, doe* not strike us as being proper. What think the public ' Rkpfslicam Pat!t\ Akravoemests.?We learn through the Washington oorrespondeuts of Republican party newspapers, that a cau cus of leading Republican members of both Houses of Congress recently came ofl at tho residence of Mr. Francis P. Blair, near this city, where there plan of a campaign (in Con gress! this winter, was discussed and arranged, as well as their schemes for the next presiden tial contest, as far ns the latter could be per fected so long in advance ot the election. It seems that the longheads ol that party, though of opinion that the present Kansas-question at titude and |?olilical Iabors of Senator Douglas and Governor I'oht J. Walker, are destined to secure for their organization a triumph in ISflO. ?coiit the idea of regardingeitlier of those distinguished gentlemen as entitled to assume the command of the regular opposition to the Democracy. According to the understanding arrived at on that occasion?their candidate is to be Mr. Seward, or Mr. Chase, or Mr. Hanks, or Mr J'issell of Illinois. However, all such calculations made at this time, arc so utterly futile, that wo wonder greatly that gentlemen ol such experience and sagacity as were present at this caucus, waste their time in ii.dulging in them I The Republican party may be dead and buried?nay, almost forgotten as a political organization by the fall of iNfilt; or men almost unheard of up to this time, may theu be ils leaders and shining lights.

With those we spread before the .S/*r'.? readers yesterday, and that of the Postmaster General, which, on account of lack of space we nre compelled to Iny over until to morrow, they show, beyond all question that President Bu chanan enjoys the earnest and heartfelt co ope ration of all his constitutional advisers, in the furtherance of the truly Democratic line of pol j icy with releretice to the Lecoinpton constitu tion he has marked out for his administration.
