I tbe fact whether the recent Democratic Ma e Convention for Indiana did or did not pas* a resolution approbatory of the 1 residi nt s *** sas policy, protests that it take!" no par , asi i hns no interest whatever in the inter-party dif ferences of the Democracy. The Urn I on is to-day devoted principally to new* and Congressional proceedings WASHrMsTUiV NtilVS AND GOSSIP. Thk Lfvkk.?The Levee of last night pre sented fully as animated a tide of mortality as that on New Year's Day, aud was in many re spects more brilliant and interesting. The President, as was the case at the New Year s reception, was looking remarkably well, and not a whit the worse at the end of his two hoars' ordeal. The introductions to the Presi dent were mode by Marshal Hoover, assisted by Deputy Marshal Phillips, and those to Miss Lane by Mr. Commissioner lilake Between nine and ten o'clock the East Rouui presented a scene of wonderful life and bril liancy. Perhaps there never before in the history of the country was exhibited such a ka leidoscope display of colors ; such a Babel of tongnes; and such a jostling together of incon gruous elements?political, social and other wise Ranged along the east end of the room, seated, quite at home, i.i the satin-covered ehairs, were fourteen Indian braves, of the Sioux and other delegations. Each was dif ferently dressed and decorated, but all original and aboriginal in costume and custom, and af fording a fine contrast by their unstudied atti tudes. stalwart figures and flowing blanket drajieries, to the thiu-legged, tight-laced male specimens of Japonicadoin, staring at them through their eye-glasses Everybody shook hands with the braves, who held a special levee of their own ; and very indignant were they if any fair lady drew back. They had their fun, too. in administering a grip of iron to the dan dies who approached, and sending them away with crushed fingers and tears in their eyes. In the elliptical promenade was presented at every revolution a succession of notables. There wero all the Cabinet Ministers; there was tall Sam Houston, towering at a height thatdis played full three quarters of a stupendous vest pattern above the heads of kss fellow mortals, and there was General Scott, overtopping even the altitudinnns Texan; there was the plump blonde tree-soilcr, Hale, and the plump bru nette free-soilers, Hamlin and Wilson; there was white neck-clothod Lord Napier, so quiet in dress so unassuming iu manner, as not to half come up to fast Young America's idea of a nobleman; there was Emmons (Pop) the poet, with Byronic collar, and eyo --in a tine phreuiy rolling;'' there was the trio of artists. Ilealy. King and Bessau. each ot whom cultivates the picturesque, and lets his hair grow ; there was Marshal Wilder, the veteran agriculturalis', with his eagle eye; there was Mrs. Southwortb, the novelist, surrounded by a circle of the literati, there was Senator Ifc>uglas. with his beautiful Washington bride on his arm ; there were sueh other prominent political stagers as Gwin, Mason, Hunter. Keitt. Clingmnn, Flor ence, Collamer. Kennedy and Pearcc; there were Judges Wayne and Catrou. of the Su preme Court, and Commodore Lavalette, of the Navy, there was Dr. Parker, fresh from his mission to the Celestials; and there was Train. tb? merchant Bostonian. who has visited every where; there were hundreds of other person ages whose names areas familiar to the ) ub lie as '* household words, but which we lack space here to chronicle The Murine Band performed exquisitely ai usual, a number of pieces arranged expressly by their leader. Scala 1 he programme opened with Buchanan's Inauguration March, dedi cated by its composer (Scala) to Miss Lane; then followed an overture from " Masaniello a duet from " Kigoletto Goldsmith's chorus from "Crown Diamond*," with imitations; Stradella tjuadrille ; Butterfly Waltz; Polka from "L tmpiri<*o;" Quickstep from ' Travi ata , Cavatina Malvina di Scozia , chorus from ??

Thk Akt ov Telkukamiimg.?We hear a ?tory of a series of k- telegrams"' recently dis patched from Richmond to this city, concerning the state of sentiment in the Virginia Legisla ture relative to the course of the Administra tion on the Nicaragua question and the extra dition of Walker by Commodore Paulding, well ?worth republication, a- illustrative of the way in which popular and legislative sentiment is " churned in this couutry for political effect. These dispatches?three in number?were about as follows: No. 1?'? Great excitement here upon the Walker question !" No. 2?""The excitement here is fremenJ ous!!" No. 3??? The tremendous excitcmcnt here is increasing Of course this astounding news came from a gentleman inclose affiliation with the filibuster council in this city?in fact, from the gentle man intrusted with the important mission of lobbying into the Virginia Legislature the pro filibuster resolves now before that body, which were never designed by their Washington city originator* to be seriously attempted to be passed This is a funny world we live in; and in no other respect more quizzical th in in the manner in which politicians essay to atfect tbe action of the Government here, as in this case As Important Public Lands (Jiektio* Ijbcidbo ?Below we publish a decision re cently inude by the Secretary of the Interior upon a question concerning conflicting titles to swamp lands claimed to have been taken up by individuals before Wing confirmed to States, by Congress, which will be read with no little interest in those Stata*. especially, that have been the recipients of eU<-h grants from the general Government DlPilTSIlT OF Tli| la-maioR. / \\ inHixutox, Jan s, k> ' ( ?|R 1 return, herewith, the papers whieh rompanied your report of I he v?;I Li November last, In the case <>f J I) Ludlow'* application of Januarys, l-Sk. to enter certain tracts of land in Danville district, Illinois After cart ful < ousid e rat ion of llw-v papers, together with Hie report* from your ofli< e of ihe -/Ttli ,\J and the 9tb Sep temljrr l**t, and the argument of John Wilsoo, K*q , of Cbn a^o, in itehalf of Mr Ludlow, I am of (be opinion that the a<-t of CouKrew of :ui March, 1-07, entitled "An act to i-ontt'ili to the M-veral States the kwnnip and overflowed lands selected under the act of September '??", 1MO," Ac , is, a* reM|ie<;tw tbe disposition of Ihe rMnt on the H>? of your odi< e at the date of its passage, mandatory in Its terms It conflrii.s the elaini of the Slates t?> sell c!i?n* of swamp and oveiflowed lands "heretofore made and repotted to Ike Omimissioiier of the General Land (Ifice, ?u far m tl?e Mine remain vacant and unappropriated, and not iuteifered with by an adust settlement under any ex!- ting iaw of the f ailed Stales,*' aud directs that ihey be approved and patented to the several States.

If It be admitted that Mr. Ludlow's applica tion and tender were legally nude, and that the lands were subject to said application at the time, ( ?n which points you are not satisfied ) still it is certain thai said application and tender were re fused by the district officer*. and the purchase was not admitted bv them The extent of right that can be acquired by a legal application and tender which have been refused, is only to a spe cific performance by the Initcd States of the con tract of purchase, the benefits of which the indi vidual might be regarded as having thereby preserved to himself. But in this case, whilst a contest for the legal title is pending before the Executive branch of the Government, the Le"is laiive branch interposes, confi uis the claim of one of the contestants, and orders the legal title to lie given to him Thi? requirement of the legislative powsr we obey without inquiring which contestant had the superior equity at the date of confirmation. And I cannot tegard the equity, which may have been acquired by an individual, who has, even impropeily, been refused the entry of spe cific tracts?though presei ved to him by the pros ecution of his rights on appeal, us such an appro priation of the tiacts as would save them from thecobfiimlng effect of the act of March 3, 1S57.

' ^ ery respectfully, your obedient servant, . , J - Thompson, Secetary. rothe Commissioner of the General I.ami Oihce The Progress of tiik Countrv.?In nolh ing else is the general progress ot tho I'nited States more conspicuous thun in the increase of the business ol tho different Kxecutive de partments here. Year by year, uiouih by uionth. week by week, und almost day by day. evidences or this fact press upou us especially; for every day in tho year it is our business to visit each of iheui in search of information of interest to the public for publication iu tho &t*r. Congress has gradually increased the clerical force of all ol thetn. and has accorded to the heads of some ol them such assistants in tho way of Assistant Secretaries necessary to the proper management of their increased du ties. Ihus, we have Assistant Secretaries ol State and the Treasury, and Assistant Post master Generals. The Secretaries of War and Navy and the Attorney General, however, are vot compelled to do without such official aids. Ihis should not be, lor the increase of labor upon those fuLctionaries has been compara tively as great iu the last decade as upon tbo.-e first mentioned. It is very clear to our mind that the interest of the Government requires that they should be at once relieved of a considerable portion of their labors, by the enactment of a law provi ding for the due employment of such assistance in their several departments. Such legislation will enable them to devote much more time thun at present to the proper management of ques tions of great iui|>ortaiicc coming before them by relieving them from the duty of attending to the matters of det^ and routine which now necessarily occupy so much of their time and attention We are very sure that if Congress will promptly legislate on this subject, as we indicate above, great advantages will accrue in the main to the public interest. The proposed officers should bo provided for with salaries of *1 i?Mi each, to meet the expensive stale of the times. The Lawrence Sr.?*EA Co. Ubirerv Cast.

Their story is evidently ?' bosh,-' and nothing more. Ihe Failire >>r the Oithagk Crop.?The editor of tho Albany Arsrt'i and Atla* is evi dently a wag in his way.

W emay add here, that the dispatches concern ing the result of the Kansas election of the 4th inst.. which we are now publishing from day to day, are from the pen of the St. Louis agent of the Associated Press, who for two years past has tinged nearly his every account of Kansas af fairs with his indtvidual Republican-party bias Our experience teaches that while all he sends over the wires that tells against his own side may be regarded as positively true, not a tithe of that coming from his pen that smacks of Re publican party successes.

All it says will strike all who have kept the run of General Green s many vagaries of political economy since his quarrel with Jackson occurred, will recognize the force and truth of what this writer says of his present useless expenditure of time ami attainments, which, otherwise directed, might ho of some service to somebody: Washington, Jan 5.

New York, meet the sanction of no South ern member ot either branch of Congress. We state the fact only hocauie it will, of course, bo t ssayed by the Kepiiblieaii party press to create the Impression that Gov. W represents others at the South in this matter besides hims-tf; which is not so. He is a free agent, and as his opinions and views on such subject affect his own future only, we see no reason to devote space in the ?<//- to their discussion Vet we may not inappropriately remark that the voting iu Kansas on the 41h ? the action ot its non slaveholding State party?iu virtually and practically accepting the Lecompton Constitu tion, shows that Governor Wise is solicitous to effect tor them in this matter that which they admit to be not worth contending for. The truth is, the admission of Kansas into the Union on the Lecompton Constitution is to manifestly but a mere necessary preliminary to placing iu tLe hands of the people of the Territory the entire settlement of all their own affairs in issue, that even Jim Lane A Co are no longer able to prevent any considerable number of them from availing themselves of the opportunity so to do. by refusing longer to play the game of ?' bleeding Kansas" for the benefit of politicians of the Last Confirmed. It is understood that the nom ination of the lion. Nathan Clifford, ol Maine to be an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, vice Curtis resigned, was duly confirmed by the Senate yesterday?the vote being 2.'i for to 2U against the confirma tion We have every reason to believe that nil the votes in the negative were those of opposi tion Senators. Judge Clifford has spent a very considerable portion ?f his life in the public service ; and however thus employed, has discharged all the duties devolved on him with eminent ability and in a manner to give entire satisfaction to all not determined to find fault with all Demo cratic functionaries on account of their politics. I nfortunately there are too many such persons; as there will continue to be, until weak humau nature changes its characteristics That Judge ( lifford s ap]>ointment will prove eminently a fortunate and wise one, we entertain no doubt whatever, and are sati.-fied that in a twelve month those of our Democratic friends who have been inclined to give ear to the aspersions upon his capacity that have originated in the bitterness of the hostility of New Kngland fed eralism towards him, will have their eyes opened to the fact that they have, been imposed ou iu this matter. ?_ The Last Si i? ii?k?The suicide of Dr. An son Jones, formerly of New York, once the President of the Republic of Texas, news of which reached us yesterday by telegraph, com ing so soon on the heel of the suicide of the late lamented Husk, strikes us with infinite pain. Like Rusk, he enjoyed through life the eliaiacter of being a man of excellent practical sense in all business affairs, and was withal a man ol remarkably even temper and well reg ulated and governed habits and passions, un less his nature had changed in the last decade We knew him well, and are more surprised at the account of the manner of bis death than we can express, lie leaves bonis of friends out ol iexas, who, wo know well, will be much shocked with the news of bis sudden exit from the world by his own baud as we have been.
