The lrntoii, to-day, publisLes the able speech ^ Toombs, delivered on the receipt by the Senate of the recent Kansas message of President Buchanan, wherein that great State paper was so forcibly vindicated. The same journal also replies to the Phila delphia Pr**s upon the Lecompton Constitu tion question The editor makes plain the folly of the plea that the Topekaites of Kansas were disfranchised, except by and through their own action in refusing to exercise the rights of citizens, under the law. We also find in the Union, this morning, a contradiction of the foolish " Washington Cor respondence roorback saving that negotia tions are going on between the President and Dr Bernhisel. the I tab delegate in the House hall, for the withdrawal of the command ef Col. Johnson from Utah early in the spiiog. Presuming that everybody of common sense woald instantly realise the utter absurdity of the idea of such an occurrence as s ated in that roorback, we did not think it worth a con tradiction when it was first started. Its so universal republication as "news" from this city, however, bus made it* formal denial by the Umton necessary The fact that it evi dently found believers far and wide, illustrates forcibly the extent of the gullibility of <? the dear people."

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP Thk Proposed Virginia inter Continent Steamship Line?We continue to be skeptics as to the entire success of the mission of the Hon. Win. Ballard 1'reBton, though our Vir ginia cotemporaries seem to take it for granted that he baa made all the necessary arrange ments and contracts for the prompt inaugura tion of aline of mammoth steamship* between Norfolk, and France. What there may possi bly be in the way of trade to justify hope that the enterprise will, at the present time, prove a successful one, we do not know ; our opinion being that the absence of facilities for placing cargoes of suitable exports to France, on board promptly?the fact that such cargoes are not always to be had near the mouth of the Ches apeake when wanted?will greatly interfere to prevent the satisfactory success of the enter prise. Such enterprises must necessarily grow up from small beginnings. That is, the success I of a line of mammoth steamships must be preceded by that of lines of sailing ships and j smaller steamers, neither of which have ever yet been in operation between Norfolk and France. An ample supply of freight leaves the Chesapeake for New York and other Amer ican porta, doubtless, to sustain a line of screw steamers in plying to and from Europe. But, unfortunately, it will take time and arduous labor to change its present direction?to divert 1 it into a new channel. Freight represents capital, which is proverbially cautious of, and slow to change. We hope for a better fate for this enterprise, than, we fear, it will meet. In stead of dreaming of mammoth steamer lines to Europe, if those interested in the future of tho commerce of the Old Dominion, would only bond their energies to secure the prompt completion of the different lines of railroads destined to bring the produco and travel of Western Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky?indeed of the whole South and Southwest?to reach the ocean first at Vir ginia's capes, they will soonest secure the moans of the profitable establishment not only of the direct line of steamships to France, but I of similar lines to England and South America. To aid such an enterprise under present cir cumstances, as it is Mr. Preston's errand to inaugurate if possible, the State must neces sarily invest in it, from first to last, as much as is now required from her in aid of the comple tion of the various railroads in which she has already invested millions, none of which can yield her a dollar of interest until the appro priations asked for them now shall have been expended on them. When that maybe done, she will not only find all her money so invested yielding a fair return to her treasury, but will also find that the grand result of her railroad expenditures will then be the concentration at her leading port?Norfolk?of as much produce and other freight as now pusses over the Erie canal, and as many passengers as now pass over the New I York Central railroad. Then, there will be no difficulty in the establishment and maintenance of steamship enterprises from Virginia to Eng land. France, Oeruiany, or wherever tLere may be people requiring American merchandise, or producing merchandise required in this coun try Until then, we repeat, we have little faith in the possibility of the profitable employment of a regular line of steamships between Norfolk and any foreign port. The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.?The meeting of the American party Internal-Im provement Commissioners of the State of Mary land. that took place at the chambers of the I Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company in the Washington City city hall on the day before yesterday, was itttendel by the following Com missioners. Viz: Messrs Reynolds, Sly, Lank ford and Peter. The first named was elected President of the Board Besides electing direc tors on the part of the Slate for the various woiks under the supervision of the Board, they voted to call a meeting of the stockholders of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company on the 13th of March next. Their purpose is, doubtless, through the exercise of the State's proxy vote, to oust the present direction and officers of the Company, and install members of the American party in their stead. We have steadily opposed such action in connection with such enterprises more especially, in the belief that politics never yet intule a man pecu liarly fit for the management of such trusts I Since the doctrine that ''to the victors (in poli tics) belong the spoils'- came in vogue, infi delity to such trusts and incompetency for their proper discharge on the part of those ap pointed or elected to them have become more and more common; until the world has seen and comprehended the utter rottenness and failure, otherwise, of the system on which a large number of the leading "improvements" of the country are managed. This has proved to be the case in too many instances, irrespec-., tive of party. We regret sincerely that this Board of Commissioners are believed to be bent on perpetuating the custom which is at the bottom of most of the evil which we de I scribe above. S? n %torsMath&r and Schell.?Findingin distant paper stories attributing to tho Hon. I John C. Mather, a member of the Senate of the State of New York, from New York city, a disposition to avoid giving testimony before the committee investigating the circumstances connected with the sale of Fort Snelling and the balance of its '? reservation " not previous ly sold, we take occasion to say that there is no truth in them whatever. Senator M. was at first simply requested to come to Washington to be examined before the committee, the Speaker I not being satisfied of his right to bring him hither from the discharge of his official duties at Albany by the authority of a subpena. We hear that on the receipt of the request. Mr. Mather replied that he did not feel at liberty to leave his j>o8t on such a summons, but would obey the ordinary subpena ; which.he request ed might be issued in his case, as he waived all right to object to obeying it. It was according ly issued, he attended, and has been daily ex amined. As it would not do for his New York city colleague, Mr. Schell, to leave bis post at Albany at the same time, that gentleman, it is understood, will coine on to Washington also to be examined before the same committee as soon as Mr. Mather gets back to his post. Aruona and California?Tuk Mormons, thk Indians, and the Minks.?Herewith we present the Star's readers with a second letter from the distinguished man?the man of science and bard sense?to whom we were indebted not long sinccrtor perhaps the most interesting chapter concerning the present and future of our acquisitions on the Pacific side so far pub lished by the press of the Atlantic slope : Montkbey, Jan.

There is a country Northeast and South of Carson Vslley very little known to the United States, or even trapper* and traders. We hear tbat Lieut, Ives has not arriv ed at Fort Ynina, and fears are entertained for his safety. This expedition will be of great value in result* to the government I think theae Mormons ought to be shipped off to the island of New Guinea, at the expense of Uncle Ham. There is an inland continent there, and a Utah in the mountains, and they can find against the Darkey tribes whose hair hangs in bites?called by naturalists the Horaforas. They can turn sailors, traders, sugar planters, Mahom etans. or what not, there. They can never live in peace with us They are a raee of essential Arab blackguards. 1 should not be surprised to ?ee them turn American Bedouins. If the President wants to see what Arizona is in mines let him get Prof Bat d to read to him the chapters In Venega's History of California. 1757, on the Jesuit accounts of Sonora in 1700. He will there see tbat the Alta Pimeria (Gadsden purchase) Is a storehouse of silver likened to Po tosi. They said 157 years ago that they found silver existing pure in masses. The Territory is immensely rich lieyond a doubt in silver, as the n-?w American mining companies go to show I think in ten years it will furnish fifty millions, probably a hundred millions of silver a year, and that it will take two mints to work up their metal into dollars. It Is as rich as California, mark my word. The President's message will be of immense advantage to the settlers there The Alta California of the last month contains a great deal of useful news about the country. That mint business of San Francisco lias caused great scandal in California, and it wants thorough searching out. I should think the President might find three honest Democrats to probe the matter to the bottom. There have been too manv Dutchmen in tbat mint, as all California sa^s,. I has caused great scandal to our party. If you ever get the opportunity with the Presi dent tell him I take the lilierty to say that the people of California will hold his hands up during the coming struggle, until the storm of paper money, Mormon treachery, and Kansas craziness passes. We are in our once in four years crazy fevers, but good doctors and mild medicine will bring the patient round. Nature must have its perfect work and we must govern and hurry things like magnetism does the wires. The President has endeared himself to the people of the Pacific by his just and patriotic public senti ments and acts. 1 hope God may spare his life many years, and tbat he will retire from public, aftairs'with the country quieted and his country men rising up to bless his name as a follower of the eternal principles of Democratic conservative policy of \\ ashington and Jacksou. Yeurs, in great haste, *** A Failure.?Yesterday, the opponents ot the admission of Kansas into the Union as a State under the Lecotnpton constitutiou en deavored to engineer through the lower house of the Pennsylvania Legislature, at Harris burg. resolutions instructing Senator Bigler to vote against the introduction of the Territory into the Union under that instrument. But they were defeated by a majority of twelve. Had they proved victorious we should never havo heard the last of the fact from the Re publican party and lishy Democratic presses. As the matter stands, however, they will ol course be as mute as mice on the subject. Senator Bigler has fairly won a very high posi tion hero as a public man, and in this action ol the Legislature of Pennsylvania the sensible reader will perceive a manifestation of the confidence of his constituents in him. such a: is rarely accorded in these days of bunkum State legislation. Naval Intelligence?The Navy Depart ment are in receipt of dispatches, bearing date January 4, which announce the arrival of the steamer Saranac at Peruambuco, after ten days1 sail from I'arbadoe*. All on board well Tbe Saranac was to sail for Rio Janeiro aboul the loth ol January. The Contempt Case.?We hear tbat Mr. J. D.

The New York Courier says We have authority for contradicting the reporl published in the Journal of Commerce respect ing an intended sale of the Collins steamers to the British Govern ment. Tbe Company is some what embarrassed by ihe withholding of the money due them by the Government for carrying the mails, but they have no idea of abandoning the enterprise which lias reflected so much honor on the American marine. Consequently the story tbat Captains Comstock and West have gone to Knglana for tbe purpose of making sale of the Baltlc*fend Atlantic is untrue. The Atlantic will leave Neto York on Feb 13, and tbe other steam ers will follow in regular succession. Sir heme Cocrt.?Before Hon.

This is well known as the celebrated Wa trous suit, which is now undergoing investigation before the Judiciary Committee'of the House of Representatives at Washington on a petition for the impeachment of Judge Wattous. The suit is brought to recover about half a million of pro perty. The Points decided are that tbe courts of New York have jurisdiction of the case; the property is situated in Texas, and that the de cision of Judge Watrous in the United States Court of Texas against Mussina can i?e reviewed and set aside, and is uot a bar to this case.?N.

On motion by Mr. Stuart, a resolution was adopted directing the Committee on Printing to inquire what amount has been paid annually/Tor the last five years, to tbe printing establishments of this city for printing and advertising for the government other than that ordered by Congress ; and also. whether any amendment'* in existing laws are necessary to secure proper economy In tbe expenses for those objects, and to report by bill or otherwise. In the matter of tbe Indiana contested election case, the question pending was on the resolution providing that the sitting member and contest ants be allowed to take testimony. Mr. Trumbull opposed this, and proposed to amrnd It by substituting that the Senate proceed at once to a tlnal determination of the subject Mr. Rayaul replied briefly, and on his motion the subject was la'd upon the table. The consideration ol tbe motion to refe?* to the Territories Committee the message of tbe Presi dent accompanying the Lecompton Constitution was resumed, when Mr. Douglas submitted a series of resolution* calling on the President for lufoimation relative to the census and registration of Kansas ; the re turns of tbe elections held on the 21st December and 4th January, Invoking tbe question of the Lecompton Constitution ar d the election of State

officers under the same ; all correspondence be tween the Executive departments relative to Kan sas affairs. See. Mr. D desired the immediate consideration ol tbe resolution; but Mr. Mason objected, and they were laid over under tbe rule. The question of referring the message was then debated at considerable Ivngth : Messrs. Brown, Green ana Bigler being in fa vor of the Constitution and advocating its refer etice Messrs Douglas, Stuart and Wilson opposed tbe Constitution and the course of the Adminis tration in relation to tbe matter. The Senate adjourned until Monday, without taking a vote on the question. Is the Hou*e, yesterday, the matter of deal ing with Mr. J II Williamson, of New York, the contumacious witness in the case of alleged corruption against certain iiienilterx of last Con gress, occupied considerable time after our re riort closed, and was Anally disposed of by allow r ug the witness tbe privilege of amending his answer, and remanding him into tbe custody ol the Serjeant-at-Arms until to-day at I o'clock. The House then resumed the consideration ol the Ohio contested election?the question belnjj on the adoption of the following resolutions: Re.Klmd, That it is inexpedient to allow far ther time to take testimony in this case, as asked for by the sitting lneiulter. Retolreti. That the pai ties, contestant and con testee, be allowed further time of sixty days fron tbe passage of this resolution to take and return further testimony. Mr. Marshall, of Ky , was in favor of the res olutions, and thought the sitting member, Mr Campbell, bad not been fairly dealt with.
