That our Union and brotherly affection may be perpetual; ibat our free Const! tutlon may be sacredly maintained; and that Its administration la every department may be stamped wltb wisdom and virtue " XoWr^, That In the nomination of auch eminent statesmen and patriots as John Bell ud Edward Kvrrett. and in Uielr election to the blgb offices for which they are supported, the Lslnuloving mm of every portion of the country ban a guarantee that ever* constitutional obioAtloq will be faithfully fnlfliled and every lateral of this great country promoted KnoJvtU.

RtsolrtA, That In view of the actional character of two of the partlea which now aerk the control of public afffclra, we aball uae every f ?lr and honorable argument and effort to prevent the aucceaa of either: and that \rh?n n mmr th? tim? when we would consent to a dissolution of the Union. we would answer In the words of the Illustrious Clay, ' ntvtr. sitir. *tr*rthat we would entertain the idea of dissolution only long enough to denounce It. and to express our execration of the men and the means by whom and by which It la proposed to consummate ao wicked ah object Ketolved, That our platform is the one suggested bv the Sage of Ashland in 1850, when, with prophetic vision he foreshadowed the present state of things, and that, in antagonism to the disunion spirit, a nrw party should be formed with the platform of "The Union, the Constitution, and the Enforcement of tbe Laws ." Ktsaitfd, That in the hands of eminent statesmen such aa we propose to elect to tbe Presidency and Vice Presidency of the United States, our platform Is not liable to a doubtful or double conitrurtlon: thai it momn in Ha <lnnti. t?Kat It mnci in the North, and therefore need* no myatlcal arrangement of word* to adapt it to different latitudea.

Tbe distance between the luminous point wbich preredfd and the luminous point whirh followed tbe llrst one, they both agree, was more tbsn one moon s breadth,but less tbst two mson's breadth, and tbe meteor did not reach tbe eastern horizon at all, they say, but simply dted out in the sky after it baa reached some considerable distance ...? ? c?a? vi liunu.'

I presume, to its great distance It was long within the range of vis.on. Crcblty to a Win ?Yesterday evening, Officer Gill arrested Henry Buete for cruelly beating his wife, and carried him before Justice Cooper, of the seventh Ward. Her appearance alone was sufficient to excite the anger of men of flue fe? lings wiio were prrsent at the time Her face and neck were bruised and battered, and her right eye was completely closed, and the fiesh black and swollen. Her pain* were so severe that he fainted In the magistrate's office before the case waa concluded These farts, and her statement of her difficulties, and the rscollectlon of the case before Justice Donn a few months since growing out of the arrest of the female who Mrs. Buete blames as the cause of her distress, aggravated the excited men, who would if they dared willingly have disposed of the case according to their views of justice, without regard to the lex Knpta Justice Cooper hiimeif, no doubt, felt so inclined, but his duty compelled him to a strict observance of the law. lie required Buete to give bail for court, and there were persons who irrre r-aity to offer themselves as his security; but the Justice regarded the esse as one that requires the b^st security, siid rejecting every offer that exhibited the least doubt, he committed Buete to Jail.

The Cattle Ca?i ?The case of W. W .M. Cbrtmiond, mentioned in the star yesterday aa In progress before Justice Donu when the paper went to press, was concluded soon after. Jurtke Donu reviewed the evidence, and decided that tb? proof of the larceny in Maryland was Insufficient to justify a commitment upon that charge, but would justify the sending of the prisoner to court upon the outer charge, receiving the stolen property with > guilty knowledge of the larceny. He tnerefore dismissed the larceny case, and required Chrismond to give bail in SSOU to appear at court to answer to the last charge. A commitment was made out and given to olScer Yeatman, who bad charse of the case, and who generously allowed the prisoner opportunity to get the security, go ng with him from place to place until he obtained it. Ovt or Tin Citt ?A very large number of the cltizeni of Washington are now away. Home are off for long visits to distant localities, rusticating la the mountains or feasting upon the "dellcacirs of the aaason" upon the seaboard. Others are only gone for a day or two to gratify curiosity by a view of the "mammoth steamer" and a short ride through Maryland.

Center MA?kir.--The Market place presented quite a cheerful app-arance this morning The early hours were pleasant, particularly the sales hours, for then tbe cool breeze circulated In the gangways, and the market was tolerably comfortable. and housekeepers taking advantai/* nf ! this favorable circumstance, engaged actively in making purchases, in order to get away before the inidaay, when the li' at would become oppreeslve. Before noon the gangways were deserted, and dealer* packed up to leave The supply waa ample and of excellent quality,and prices were generally moderate. The dealers would do well If thev would prevent boys and others from throwing melon rinds In the gangways in front of their stands The safe'y of their customers should be looked to by them, and a little such attention would made them many friends.
