KVKNING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: liTV'ROAY. January 9, IS3*. jjT" idTt rliManU ihsild be seat la by 1-2 ?Mock a.; otherwise they may act af par an til Mif aext day. * SPIRIT Of THE MOKNINO PKt'SS. The Union, in two articles on the Kansas question, shows that the conservative men of the non-slavebolding State party in Kansas are rapidly coming to acquiesce in the propriety of the admission of the Territory into the I nion as i State upon the Lecompton Constitution, and that the opposition to it there is now only on the part of Jim Lane and his desperate fol lower*; the rest, who were not long since op poeed to it, having determined to rote on the 4th. and thas. if possible, get control of the mw Stat* government, call a new Convention, aad amend the Constitution to suit themselves, if they can. The TnttUigtveer again comments, in high terms upon the President's message concerning llibastering, and feels assured that the popu lar response to all its suggestions, win be very Marly unanimous U7" On New Year'* eve the famous Cowbel lian de Rnkins Association in Mobile celebrated If* twentv-seventb anniversary. The scene of the festivities was the theatre, where there were tableaux, feasting, dancing, Ac. IET Berdan's Great Steam Bakery was inaug urated in Philadelphia on'Tuesday. in spite of the combined opposition of the small bakers of the city. The North American says:?"From this day forth we shall enjoy the advantage of having the beat possible bread at a minimum price." [?" The lA>nd?n Time# has a remarkable edi ? terlal denoting a wondnrful change in tone upon the subject of slavery in that great exponent of pnblic opinion in Great Britain. In effect, it jus tifies the existence of African slavery, and urges England to the adoption of Asiatic slaverv as a recompense for the advantag s lost in elving up the other continent as the field from which the labofers in its West Indian colonies were brought. |p* The case of Thomas W. Smith, charged with the murder of Richard Carter, is continued in Philadelphia and the excitement relative to it on Thursday morning appears to be on the in crease. Long before the doors were opened the court room was besieged by a dense crowd, among which were several ladies, all anxious to obtain admission. The reading of certain letters of the prisoner produced an extraordinary sensa tion, and showed that at least at the time they were written he was not iu a sound state of mind. They are evidently the production of a diseased intellect, and coupled with the testi mony of the witnesses go far to support the plea of insanity IfT Tbe report of the Bank Superintendent of New York, submitted to the Legislature, recom mends that no mortgages be allowed to be taken as security for circulation notes, to compel every Incorporated bank gradually to replace their pre sent circulation by notes secured in the same manner as the free banks; to compel all the banks in the city of New York to keep ? per cent, of their weekly deposits, of all descriptions, fn coin; apeclal deposits in coin not to form a part of the statement. Tbe banks out of the city to keep tLe same per centage upon the average of their quar terly deposits either in coin or the balance to the credit of a solvent bank in New York, Brooklyn Albany or Trov. The Execatiea at Donnelly lor the Murder of Moses. Dr. James P. Donnelly, a young man well known in this city, and where he Las yet many warm friends wno believed him innocent to the last, was hung yesterday at Freehold, N. J., on charge of the murder of Albert S. Moses at the Seaview House in that State Donnelly was born in Warren street, New York, of Irish parents. He is a physician and surgeon by profession, and attended the University o' Georgetown, D C., and tbe Hosp-tal at New York During the prevalence of yellow fever a Norfolk, Yirginia, a few yea's nun. be volun teered his professional services iu behalf of the ?offerer* there from that epidemic He has spent a considerable time in this city, moved in good ?society here, and was engaged to In- married to tbe daughter of one of our most estimable citi zens. The day previous to his death, he sent tel egraphlc messages to Ibis young l:tdy aski ng to see her prior to his execution, and ?be with true 'Woman's devotion, was most anxious to go, but It was not deemed advisable by her ft lends. He further requested, that at all events, some person from Washington should see him before he died, and in accordance with this wish a gentleman of this city, repaired to Freehold and was with Donnelly to the last. Donnelly's escape on Saturday night was doubt lews effected bv persons holding responsible situ ations, and the matter is to l?e investigated. On Tuesdav rumors were afloat of preparation on the part of Donnelly's friends in Yew York, to ad vance in force upon the t<>wn, attack the jail and aet tbe pri*oner free. The same schooner winch was In readiness off Keypoit at the time of Don nelly's escaj>e, apparently for the purpose of con veying him beyond the reach of the authorities, -Was sal4 to be still hovering on the coast, manned by a numerous crew. Tbe Sheriff received an anonymous communication from New York, warning him that a large body of men were preparing to proceed to Freehold and liberate Donnelly. The Sheriff said he would place little reliance in tbe letter were It not for the fact that It was written in the same handwriting as an other which he received some time since, In forming him that Donnelly bad a club and a sum of money concealed in his cell?information which proved correct Immediately on receipt of this letter by tbe evening mail on Tuesday* the Sheriff ordered out the military company which Freehold boasts, and sent orders to the commandants of companies in the vjcinity, di recting them to assemble at Freehold The jail was guarded by the military on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. On the night preceding the execution the fol lowing corps were ordered on duty: The Mon mouth Blues. Capt J K Patterson, of Fieehold, 30 muskets ; the .Monmouth Guards, Capt II J. Canine, of Blueballs, :M) muskets; the Ocean Ml ties Capt. Brown, of Long Branch, 45 men; and the Excelsior Guards, of Fresh Pond. 3i men A compaay from Perth Amboy were also ordered out On the same night several men were seen bv the sentinels prowling about the jail at a late boar An Ineffectual attempt was made to ar reat them. Several close carriages, heavily laden, passed through Freehold at 1 a. in .coming from tbe direction of Keyport Many thought they were filled with men On Thursday Donnelly was with Kev Doctors Cuaunlsgs and Young, Catholic < lerKy,nen of Now York, his spiritual advisers. ''Religious rttes have just been administered to ais," said Donnelly, ' and what I say now ought ta b? b< ? sieved 1 have beeu asked whether I would pre fer to be hnng inside the prison or in the prison yard I told them It made no difference It is only for my poor father and sisters that I care No man can say that Donnelly is a coward. Don nelly never meanly skulked to kill a man To morrow I shall have something to say 1 shall give s clue to the real murderer. I never would nave done it under any other circumstances ; but now, for tbe sake of my family, I will let no man, who Is my frieud, doubt the truth of a word 1 shall utter to-morrow. With bell on one side aide and hegven on the other, I shall speak, and my dying declarations ought to be believed." Donnelly spoke of his escape as a desperate ef fort for liberty. The three sisters and other relatives and friends of the prisoner arrived from New York iu the morning train. His father was not there. At 2 o'clock p m , yesterday, he was hung In tbe presence of an Immense crowd; first having made a spear h of some two hours long, In which be ably reviewed the testimony and reltrrafed ftls innocence. His body was taken to New York, attuided by pr. Cummins I WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. I Thf. Message.?If the sensation generated among the public men of the country now con gregated here, by the President s message dent I to the Senate on the day before yesterday, be a fair criterion of its probable effect upon the American popular sense of right and wrong, it is destined to tell with more power upon the future policy of the United States than per haps any other State paper that the exigencies of any period has brought oub from under the hand of an American Executive With the exception of a handful of gentlemen who have committed themselves to very extreme views upon up the filibuster question, its every sug gestion meets the entire approval of all now in national pnblic life at the Federal Capital and where dissentients are lound to any portion of it. as far as we can perceive, they dissent not to the general conclusions as to his duties in the premises to which President Buchanan I has arrived, but rather to isolated points in the policy of his Administration on the subject. That is to say, not to the end* he seeks to at tain, whether with reference to the suppression of filibustering, or as to the legitimate progress of Americanism over the North American conti nent, which, as be so forcibly explains, must proceed hand in hand. But rather to his views of particular points of law involved in the general question. Thus some distinguished gentlemen, while admitting it to be his duty to repress the sailing of unlawful military expe I ditions from ports of the United States, con tinue to contend that he must effect that object before they get beyond a marine league from our shores. We can only urge them to study more closely not only this the powerful State paper on which we are commenting, but the law boaring on the subject, in the hope that they, too, will soon come fo comprehend that the framers of our neutrality statutes and the interpreters of the laws of nations for centuries past, intended, in prescribing the rights and duties of Govern ment in the premises, to accord to it (Govern ment) ihe power to enforce those rights and discharge those duties. But we are digressing somewhat. The Mes sage is hailed all around us as driving the lust I nail in the coffin of filibusterism, while it can not fail to concentrate American popular sen timent upon the true plan of making American principles and institutions, in due time, the blessings to the rest of the North American con tinent they now are to that portion within the jurisdiction of this Government. Ail who have been attentive observers of tho signs of the times know well that we have arrived at that inevitable point iu our existence as a nation? rapidly progre.'sing in population, commerce, wealth, the arts, science, literature and national power?at which the principle of expansion be comes an almost irresistible element of our national character. So it has been with every uation that has rapidly become great from a small beginning, if history, ancient and modern, is to be relied on. It is useless, all history tells, to esssy to re press the national bent to which we refer above. It can and should be wisely &[*d philanthrop ically guided, as President Buchanan proposes. His eloquent and forcible views on the subject are hailed by the public men of all parties bore as likely to turn the Southern popular mind from the wild propensity to violate law, rights, justice, and common honesty to give vent to the natural mania for expansion, and to lead it into the channel wherein it can surely accom plish its purpose not only soonest, but under circumstances whertin it will prove a real blessing rather than a curse to the races whose condition and future it proposes thus to im I prove. Thk Bkttkr State or SotiETr ?The North ern journals, in their accounts of actual occur rences around tbeui, are constantly in the habit of disproving the allegations and argu ments of those of them written with the orro ne<jU3 idea that the institution of African sla very is a positive injury to the white laborer dwelling in its midst We have, many a time and oft, combated that notion, in the Star's columns, but never So effectually as it is com bated in the police and other similar reports and accounts which we often Cud iu newspapers u?o.?t given to editorial misrepresentation of the state of society at the South Below, we extract from the New York Timr* a graphic picture of Broadway on Now Year's l>ay, which tells a tale of truth concerning the eondition of the poor iu the " better ordered" North, such as will hardly be credited by jht son- at the South who only know the condition of noeiety there, where actual want is a thing utterly unknown by any one anywhere from Mason ,t liixon's line to the Kio Grande's eastern bank Broadway Mexumant* ?The f stlvities :ind brightness of New Year's Day weie not :t little ni.trred l?v *!??" great numbers of beggars wlm availed themselve* of the general hilarity to make their appeals for cbaiity. <Jay 44 callers" as they honied f mil house to house. were l?eset hy swarms of importunate little mendicants, who hi?d the perseverance of .sturdy veteran* in their business. These little creature# abounded in all the principal street* and avenues; hot it was in Broadway where all b<*gga'doin held hl'h carni val, and strove to excite svmpathv hy the exhi tions of woe and wretch' une*s Theie was one particular style of appeal which was specially monopolized hy the Chinamen, who are wonder ful experts In the art* of mendacity. One of them coiled himself up on the sunny pavement with a placard attached to him, on which was inscrilted KThls Chinaman Is starving;" while a short distance from him was another of his countrymen with a paper liefore him, on which was written iu perfectly good English 441 am starving;" from which we should infer that starving for a living was a rather prosperous bu siness, for there is always at least one Cblnatii-m on the sidewalk of Broadvfey in that condition. When one of them goes home to his rice and chop-sticks he U probably relieved by a pirtner who takes his place and enacts his part in a truly artistic mariner. The weather was so warm and genial tLat it was no wonder the poor and unsalable should take the opportunity of coming out from their wn tched holes to bask iu the sunshine But there was no occasion for them to make such an ostentatious display of their infirmities iu the crowded highway as they did on Nrw Year's. Every miserable pauper In the city who had any holilv iuii mitv, appeared to have come Into Broadway to exhibit it for the pui pose of gain. Men with stumps of arms, dtfo.no d childr-u. and Ethiopians without legs, were there iu great f?rce, and dirty-faced drab* with consumptive children, hired for the occasion, made attacks on the gay throng without intermission during the dav The well-d'essed and sedate policemen, who Were uiiu?uatlv numerous in Broadway, tlid not appear to thiuk it was any business of theirs to see that the sidewalks were not Incumbered by sqiulid bfg^ars and starving Chinamen The lazzaronl of King Boinba never had a freer li cense to disport tbelr ragged ness In the sunshine of Naples, than our Broadway beggars enjoyed on New Year's day. If t Lose poor creatures were as needy is they app* a-ed to lie, If they were starving and h<>m le??. lien they should have tieen immediately ? ikeu ca e of and sent to the Almshouse, and the charm* te? of the city saved from the disgrace of permitting the sick and feeble poor to (>erlsh In the streets in the midst of plenty. But, If they were impostors, or beggars by profession, who .?7 ^ * r?tt.er than work, they were equally entitled to the attenth ntof the Police, and should have been committed to prison as vauationds. Our public streets, especially upon holidays, ??gtil to lie kept f ee from such disgusting ob i-i u as starving Chiiinm-n who make iiermanent ocat.ons on the sidewalks, and obstruct tl.e travel of such a crowded thoroughfare as Broad it AffftAfl.-f-Below will be found a letter from a gentleman in Kansas, of high character and great discretion and forbearance, as we know well We have every confidence in the entire integrity of the impressions under which ho writes concerning the existing state of affairs there. Yot it is our duty to state that we have information nf precisely the same date fipm the Tertitory from another quarfer~froia a gentleman of equal qualifications a? a judge of matters and things there who tells us that (he bloodshed atones are greatly exaggerated, and that, as a general thing, comparative peace aud quiet reigns throughout the Territory. Jle left there siuoa the election of the 21th, and is of opinion that six thousand votes were polled on that day for the Lecompton Constitution, with slavery, and about five hundred for the Constitution without slavery. His impression is. that, notwithstanding Lane's opposition to that course, the non-slaveholding State men turned out very generally at the election of the 4th instant. That, indeed, with scarcely an exception they voted in it as well a* the pro slavery men; and that the entire vote cast on on that occasion ranged between thirteen and fourteen thousand. ^ e state these facts for the information of our readers who have as much difficulty as our self, of course, in learning to discriminate be tween the true and the false in accounts of oc currences in the. so far, ill-fated Territory : n uVta??OTT C,tv' K T ?

I bese lawless men are emboldened and ren dered more reckless and audacious from the ab sence of the military, m this connection, I wish to state a fact not generally known, and I derive my information from a reliable source: that the troops at Fort Leavenworth cannot be relied upon ln j?n "tremity.
