Thi Divil to Pat ?It li underttood that Mr Ford, the House Printer. bat virtually iDld bit contract with the House to Mr Pangborn, after previously selling It to Mrssrs Larcomb A Knglt?h, who have executed the work for Mr Ford up to this time The public know that Larcomb A F.nglish d?ny Ford's riulit to make the second ale, and have enjoined Mr. Heart, Superintendent of lb* Public Printing, not to pay over a dollar to Kor<i or his second assignee Mr. H. will respect the writ of injunction. So, if Pangt>orn essays to execute the work remaining to b?* done, he must have backer* In the aperillation, for while it will require a heavy capital, the chances are ten to one that the Circuit Court will decide in favor of Larccinb & English's claims to the sub-cobtract; covering of course the right to execute whatever portion of the work Pangl'orn may do. In the meanwhile Larcomb A Kngllsh have possession of a large quantity of executed House printing, embracing 30,000 copies of the voluminous report of the Covode committee, ordered by the House to be printed especially as a Republican party electioneering document for the current Presidential campaign That large batch of documents, cs i well as others, are now ready for delivery to the House binders; but not a sheet will Larcomb A F.uglish permit to go out of their possession until the Court decides whether their sub-contract or that of I'angborn is the valid one. The legal question will be in abeyance quite long enough, we apprehend, to entirely defeat the parttzan purpoae of the Republican majority of the House in ordering the printing of the Immense edition of that expensive work, the cost of which thev *a<t. died upon the National Treasury. We apprehend that there are not a few others in the District of Columbia beside* I.arcomb A Knglish, and Defre?s, who having claims growing out of the House printing cf this Congress, are not a little nervous over the condition In which it now stands. So much for the public printing stench which the last House raised; the odor of their own printing rascalities being likely to smell most offensively In the noktrils of an honest public. rtthk.* of Travel ?The F.dltor of the Star proposes, ere the close of the current week, to start out upon a tour similar to that which he per. formed at this season <<f last year; his purpose b-lng to write and publish (In 'he ;S/nr'.?columns) a detailed account of all he see* ar.d hears likely to interest the newspaper reading public. The fart that his similar letters previously published hive never failed to be extensively republished in the l'( lumns rf rnnlfmnntjio!. _ - - . . | \-l <?l Jl j\/UI illiio, (I MM m cause a very large extra demand for the Star?to be mailed by purchasers to d'stant friends?induces him to believe that be will be able on this occasion to add. thus, greatly to the Star's interest in these j iping times of dullness in the Federal Metropolis. He gives this notice to the public in advance of starting out upon his tour, in order that those who may desire to obtain extra copies of the paper containing his letters, one arid all. may send in their orders at once to the Stnr office specifying the number of copies they wish referred for them Advertisers, by the by, will perceive that the publication in the Star of another such series of sketches of travel will be a great card for them ; for the papers containing them have always been more sought after in this region of country than ever a newspaper wns, except during the publication of the Star's report of the Sickles' trial. The l'rnroskd Joint Ticket in Nf.w York The tone of the ."New York Tribune upon the current disposition of the friends of Bell and Kverett to support a joint electoral ticket with the Democr.t y, satisfies us that, so far as tbat wing of the opposition to the Republican party is concerned, there is to be no difficulty what* ver in the consummation of the proposed and very sensible union. The Tribvnr calls Messrs Brooks. Duer, and Hunt every conceivable name it can lay its pen to The meaning of its abuse is simply a confession that it see* a prosj>ect of the defeat of the Lincoln ticket in New York, ahead In the meanwhile Mr Douglas himself is doing his best to fjravrnt any such union In New York us that proposed ; thus adding continuation to tne now so general impression, that his purpose is simply to make fair weather with the Republican party for the race in 1^64. To be able to claim that he secured the triumph of Lincoln In by keeping the Democracy divided, and there fore ia entitled to a debt of gratitude from that organization. s Another Alleged Defalcation ?A special dispatch to the Baltimore Sun of this morning ays: Maj D J Sutherland, quartermaster of the marine corps.

The r? suit has been the complete destruction of nearly &">0 acres of productive land This event is said, by the journal named above, to have bten witnessed by only one individual, a herdsman named Kadyr Rahhn. employed in fending oxen on the spot. The man states that, he was sitting under a tree on the side of a hill, watching his cattle on the plain below, and was suddenly alarmed by a most extraordinary movement of theground under his feet In his terror he ran down the bill, and when he looked back he saw the tre?-8 hurled into the air and the surface nf tVi? ground heaving tnto hillocks, tilling the air with a cloud of dust. He further declares t&at there was no wind, nor any subterranean noise. The convulsions of the earth must hive been corfl.ied to a very limited space, f??r the inhabitant? of th? village, only four miles distant, knew nothing of what had occurred till informed bv the hrfdsnrian, and could hardly believe their eyes when they saw the devastation effected in so short a tine Sea Voyage* vs Crowded Watkr.n^ Piacrs ' To everybody," says the i.ondon l.ancet, "except some nervous and delicate females. and a few malfs with very susceptible and untamable stomachs, a moderate sea voyage is one of the Uue?t tonics known.
