TOTML_ - ---ML The efUblit-bment of a coui. Investigation of olaims again* *? Unitea StoteB. whilst it will not, in any inrtance, advance the course of justice in the ?et tkmont of debta due by the faderal govern ocot, either in law or equity, will hare the ?Act, bo far M the poor claimant is concerned, of practically defeating his pnrsu t altogether. According to the rules of the court, just pro mulged, the expenses of prosecuting a claim will be very large; even greater than in an or dinary court of justice; whilst the decision of the eourt, when arrived at, amounts to nothing more than a mere report to Congress, either fa vorable or otherwise, to be acted upon y a body afterwards, precisely as the reports of the on Claims have been heretofore But there is this difference between the newly established court and the former Committee on Claims? th*t now a vast deal of formality has to be gone through with, a large expenee has to be incurred, and evidence has to be produced ac cording to law, or it will be rejected Heretofore, the object of an Investigation by committee was to obtain all the information of any character which could be procured; and this was done without cost to the claimant, it being the duty of the departments to furnish ?ll the facts in their possession, and of the members of the committee to procure such facte and report npon them. By the rules ot the " Court of Claims.' the applicant will be compelled to pay the commis sioner before whom he must appear, five dollars ? day as his fees, and twenty cents for every hundred words contained in the depositions. He must also p*y the fees of witnesses for toavel and attendance ? the fees for serving emmmonses, and all the incidental expenses at teadant upon courts. After having gona tbrenth these proceedings, his case is sent to Washington, whither the claimant must also r.i ?air, either by counsel or In person, and a*r%it the pleasure of the Judges. Wo do not think the rubs ot tbe Court have exceeded the pow ers conferred by the act establishing it. Tin defects are in the act itself, which is as ?rude a piece of legislation as ever occupied a ?or it ion on the statute books. It does not reach the evils existing iu the way of the claimants apainst toe government while it ren ders tbe prosecution of such claimB m >rc dif ficult and expensive than heretofore. Congress has t-till fiially to act upon all claims not al lowed by the departments, and whatever cor ruption or abuse existed previous to the pa nose of this act, in the legislation of either branch, remains intact. The only benefit arising will be in the increase of federal patron age, already too large, and in the quantity of printing which will be required, aud which will fall of course to the support of some pap-fed organ io Washington. There is but one method by which Congress can remedy the abuses which now exist in the prosecution of claims against the United States, ?nd at the same time afford a pro ner and just relief to claimants. As the U alt ed States have no existence as a political idea) being, except under the organiz ation of tbe constitution and federal laws, it is assumed as a principle flowing irom the sove reignty of the United States, that the offbers of the government are not subject to suits for acts in the regular discharge of their official duties. A person, therefore, having a claim against the government cannot bring a heau 01 department or any otlier federal _ officer m?o court in case of the refusal to settle the claim. Under the existing laws, no satisfaction cau be had except hy recourse to Congress, in the #hap? of ape'ition lor relief, and in this state of facts lies all the difficulty. A large majority of claims are such a? would be allowed at once, could recourse be bad to the courts of law A direct suit against tbe United States cannot bo maintained without the authority of an ac . of Congress; but by tbe passage of an act givin? eucb power, all difficulty would be obviaJrt^ True, there are cases which could not be cstab liated in a court of justice, being more m the natnre of gilts th..n indebtedness, strictlv raeakiag; but they are not numerous, and might be deposed of by Congress wuhoat im neding their legitima'e duties, nu examination of the records of Coagress will show that hundreds of claims have been reported upon favorably hy committees of both houses, placed upon the private calendar, and Allowed to sleep in quiet, whilst the cUimw , worn out by anxiety , hop"* deferred, and, n natty instances. poverty, sleeps no |e?R q'uetly In the grave. Who has visited Washmgtou and not seen, even in the briefest experience, poor claimants hanging about the halls ofOon ire-B with tiirearl *>are garments, pallid faces, ard lu-treless eyes, in the vain expectation tiat their caseB would bo reached, till nature a? length releases ?hem from their suffwngv and their dr? ary prospects are ended ? What relief is afforded to soch people by the gramlilo quently styled " Court of Claims ? _ And yet It is a rem. dy for cases like these which is most needed. and appeals moet touchingly to the "S'Si r.?c tM.te.eD if Oonprofls were to pass an act authorizing claimants to s-ue the Uaited State?? and it wo-ild be nothing mire than the right the Uni'ed Spates now possess in suing individuals? that the cia^s of cases we have ju-t alluded to m'ght not be reiched. But by withdrawing from Congress the s^at ma jority of cases which dow encu nber the cob mit?ee rooms, and yearly fill the c^eudar, would leave compa'-atively little work in the matter of claims to be disposed of ^ jj}e *w0 hou eo, anrt that little would be ?tte^edJ?V The prospect, of such a modificatlonof the laws as will take from Congress the ' of claims, is uot, hiwever, brilliant lluman nature is wehk. and (according to the charges made by members themselves, and the investi eating committees they deemed it necessary to appoint to Bit upon their own characters.) tho, ofmembers of Congress presents no exception to Se general 'railty. It is not probably itn m ben will consent to give up the J; 1 dow possess in being the great arbitrators in ftem?tt?rof claims on the Treasury. opinion must be r-roughtto bear on the *ul>jict, ard not till then need we hope for any substan tial and effective reliof. Aa for the " Court o. Claims." it may serve to call attention to the injustice of th? existing productive of no other good. Hov ng fulfilled its mission, the sooner Coo gress abolishes It the better, and substitutes in its place a wholesome enactment by which justice will be dispensed at a more reasonable rate and in a more speo y and efficient manner.

The poison of Northern seet'onaliam was gradually working its way. In 1846 the tariff waa modi fied; the antagmiem ?t> this point had grown weaaer, and tbe a'avery issue loomed up mow fiercely than ever. Slavery vu exclu-.e 1 from Oregon by a democratic ad mtBiatration. and Wilmot, a Peunsylvarra democrat, In troduced hi? famous proviso. It w?s the firht attempt to exclude the louth from tbe c-mm"n terr tiry. It laid bore the designs of the> North, and the moat UalJB loving men in the South felt that th're was danger ahead from their Northern alliance. When the nex'. Presidential canvass opened, ooth whig and democratic parties at tempted to cent out tb>a element of sectional dUoonl ac 1 reetore their loat * atiooality. The slavery <ju>)i>ttoa watt imouthed over in their pisiform* anvl pledge* of pesoe given <n exchange tor tbe support of the rfoath. Tfcwy were sccepted. and wbtggery, everywhere strengthened by Peuiherners' confidence ia a Bonthern man, e'ected General Taylor to tbe Pieridency He proved fftlne to his pledges, false to his constitutional oath, and false to the Couth, when bo erected California, by military usur pation, into a fr?e Kate. The disposal of the territories acquired from Mexico text brought up tbe issue. The Compromise followed, in which the stlempt was again made to stifle tbe antagbnlsri and s?v? tbe Union. Pledged to its support, both parties went into the last election for President. The democrats carr el the day, and President Pierce was elected. With the hope of driving abolition forever from the floors of Congress, the Northern democrats bnaght forward the Nebraska bill. The Missouri Compromise line, which the South had re peatedly ten/ ered to the North aa a settlement of the queMion, but which they iteidily lejer.ted, was repealed, and the landed Cnion stviag principles of tht Compro mice ot 1*60 re-enacted in the Nebraska bill But anti slavery, which in 1820 eagerly acceded to the Missouri line, and in I860 robbed toe South, by this same com- i promii e, of all her territories, had grown too insolent end powerful now to listen to aay further compromises. Squatter sovereignty was good doctrine whereby to ex clude the South, but a fnul wrong when by it she might colonize Ksnsa?. And what h?4 been the rer uitV The democratic party, vb ch, like the whig, hid been strug gling to preserve tbe nationality, finds itself at last overwhelmed by tbe sectional issue, and utterly broken u j by abolition. There remvns no common platform upon which either the democratic or tbe whig ptrty can unite their Northern and Southern wings. All hopes ot national crgani/atkns on tie basis of either is shown to be hopeless by the listory of tbe North during tne past year. The antagonism nas triumphed. Such was tbe state of the old parties. when, about a year ago, the Know Nothing order first made iU m*rl< in the politics of the country. It pronounced the old parties etto'e and rotten. It proposed to bury the old issues whleh had divided the North and the South, and to erect upon their grave a grand compmbensive na tional idea, which would ovorride all sectional differ ences, and give peace and security to tbe Union. Sick as men were of tbe old patties, disgusted with tboir vain expedients, and lured by its peculiar principles, the new part; gathered t > its fold many adherents. We do not care now to question the juit<ce of the an tagonism which this part? assumes to exist between the Da'ive and foreign born, and which constitutes the ehiaf basis of its organization. We are willing to ac cept it as a fact. let, wbat do we see? It exclude! the foreign element, because It is supposed to be radi cal, disturbing and antagonistic to a a cable nationahty, and asserts that tbe native horn are the only true friends of order, conservatism and the Union- We have the history of the past six months be' ore us to test these principles. Tbe elections at the North came on, and everywhere the 1 fusion" between abolition and the new order carried the day. The faith of Southern men began to tremble- What hopes could be had of a mtiosal party at all acceptable to the South, which signalized its first triumph* in alliance with free soilere? But still the cry was kept np We still beam of the great Am-ricuu natlnn?l organization, in which the slavery question was to be buried forever. The aflliialion with free toilers was only a loeal affair, and ail would be put right in time ! Events rolled on. The Massachusetts Legislature, in which the lvuow No things were omnipotent, met, and in a few short weees has given to the world a record of fan&tieicm, of dis gusting rowdyism aud snanie, which the moat degeue rate posterity will biuth to psruse In tbe frenzy of abolition, tliev have attempted to m%ke tha jitdicUry. that great stronghold "f liberty, tbe vassal and tool of mob lacatkitm, aud they are aiiout to ndiify tbe Fu gitive Slave law. The i ame ouncil for the State of New York hive turned their backs upon an effort ma4e by Mr Fillmore and his friends to stiCe tiu sUvery Issiin in this org in: - zation- Wo m'ght pilo proof upon pr<>of to tie same fcf feet. Antl- slavery " wtll not go down" a* the Norih. A 8 arty, organized to put down aa influenoe, said to be ostile to the Union, baa itael' fallen a prey t<> tha same evil. A party wklch w?s to kill s?ctvon\l oitI-r?*',es aud consoHoato tbe Union, has in its first victorioj stcicken down reilglcus free om, Imleren^ence of th?i jtidio.ary, tfnd raised a fiercer w?r agalast the South thin ever be fore. Tlere remains vo hope o' a nat'onal Know No thing organization. That p?rty ha- gone the way of tbe democratic and whig p.irt*n. What is the lesson ia igit f The North will not aban don tbe ecb-mis of abolition Fanaticism is s rong-r than parties, and national org^mzatiups are itnpossi .le which refuse to bow before it. 'i -.?r num wui-h m n for fchl'iy years hare been throwing over the hideoas forms of *nti slavery has l'a''en off, and, nnappeased and urappensable, it presents itself for deadlj combat with tbe South, l'hat Ifco South can touch a nUiontl organi zation wbish strikes at slavery, Is not to bo thought of. Ihe day of national partlea is therefore at an end. Ant' klavery and aggression upon the South control the North. Must they not destroy the Union ? The Doj Pound Controversy.

As the immaculate Mr Mickellar ha* pre tended to give a full account of hi* connection with the fog pound, end has endeavored in that statement to pre judice tbe Couit againat th e committee bj false ininu ation*, and as I shall jrove, by false statement* of facta, 1 comber it my duty, as well &i my right to cxpo-e this honest chief clerk in a manner mure ?' pleasing" to me, perhaps, than to blm. Falsehood No 1. Mr Mackellar says that I received all the cog redemption mocey for the years 195' and 1852, with the exception of about six days. Tain i i not true. Henry Biihop had charge of tbe pound io 1861 for tbe first wee* or ton days, and received the money. Captain Wi^ham, of the Eighteenth ward police, was text put in charge. Then I auceee led him as Kund lueper, and rtm line: until Ihs class of the seaion. iring all ihirf time, Mr. MaekeUar came up very fre quently, and while there, received money from parties who riin? to redeem their dogs. II* toot In, htmiilf, that jear, about on? taLrd of the whole amount. Now put down wbat he say* I received 9300 And one-third, that he rev.eived 100 I t-upjoie BUhop and Wigham received 200 Total *flo0 I ee ving a balance of 9300 to be accounted for by Mr.Mac kellar. So mu:h for falsehood No 1. FaUehocd No. 2. In 1802 James Clark was pound keeper, at a salary of 92 p?r day. Bat 1 was placed there to have a general supervision of the pound and to re ceive the money. And, a* in 1861, Mr. Maakeliar was in tbe habit of eomiog up every few day*, and took in the money. Whin 1 wa* away to dinner, or otherwise, Clark wonkl receive the money I auppoee in this year, (lt-62) he took In about one quarter of the whole amount. Now wbat Mr. Mackellar say* I received 9300 And one quarter he received 76 1 suppose t'lari received 75 Total 9iM> leaving a btlsnce oi 9160 to beaooounted for by tbe vir tuou* Mackellar, who oevar seduced a wonua. In lt-bS, Mr. toackellarsa;* that a man "whomha kne* to be honest from principle" wa* faced at the pound to wateh me. This man wa* his brother in law, Allen Mc Kechioe, appointed at a (alary of 93 per day. He was aick nearly nix week*, and all this time, although so "bone*t from principle," drew hie 93 per day from the city treasury through Ma-keilar, while I performed all tbe work and got nothing but my salary as a policeman (about 91 01 per day.) And it alio seems very strange that be being tick- to long Mr. Mackellar could not Bod some other honest hub to watch me. But it may te that he had no other boacst relatives to receive 98 per day, without he appointed another bro ther- in law. In thi* year, 1863, Mackellar, as la '61 and '62, came up frequently and took in the mtney himself. Hu son and MsKrchlne alto reeeiv*d the money.

TBS OFBBA IN BOSTON. The artists from the Academy opened at the Boston theatre on Monday, in " William Tell," with the old caat. Hie heuep, it aeema, waa not full, which may be accounted (er by the fact that the prices in the npper tiers were donbl? the New York rates. The TrantcrijX of Tuesday, sajH Ibe audience at tbe Boston theatre last evening wte quite large and very enthusiastic. The artists, as they made their appearance, were welcomed with much oor diaUty and waim applauae. There was, as will almost invariably happen on a first reprecentation, soma little jarring in time and tune between the orchestra and the vocal department, but upon the whole, the entertain ment paiaed off in a very satisfactory manaer. 8>elTe none performed her role very well indeed, in some por tions of it exhibiting a good deal of dramatic power. It Is net, however, one of the most prominent parta in the opera, and affords bat a limited scope for the develope ment t>f passion. Tbe two principal r&lu to which everything ehe In tho opera ia subordinate, are those of Wm Tell, tbe hero, and Arnold the son of the old pastor; the former or which was sustained by Baciali, and tbe Inter by the new t?nor Btlcionl. Badiall needs no tribute at our hands. He played Tell, as he plays everythivg he under takes, with his whole souL Boloioni has a clear voice, net so mellow and sympathetic as aome taat we have beard, but he sings in good tune and with rare? two very commendable features in these days when tbe great a m aeema to be to make the moat noise In the grand trio at the end of the aecond act he sustained himself very well against the powerful tonca of Badiall, and Co letti, who per'ormed ilie part of Walter. t ignore Bertncca Ma'eUek has gained strength in her voice since her last appearance here, and went through b?r rdie very acceptably indeed. U will be repeated on Wednesday evenirg. On Friday evening, "l.uerezta Borgia" will be perlormed, in which Vestvall will appear. "William Tell" ia to be repeated on Saturday after noon. The Evening Trandbr aaya , The first performance of Rossini's last opera, " Wll l om Tell, " drew a Urge audience to the Boston tbeatre last evening, but by no means a house full. Although this opera can with no justice be called Roasim's chef d'auvre, (the "Barber" ia certainly his frvsheet and most perfect in spiral inn,) it if still remarkable aa the tint and last attempt ot It* author in a new phase ot dramatic ait. "William Tell" waa, upon the wools, well produced list evening, and found an attentive and enthusiastic audience. The orchestra waa not to good a 4 it will be on a repetition, when relieved of some of its boiattroueneas, acd a little inor? under its control The chins was very good also, although such a ami 1 num ber of voices must always fail to give the proper effect ; for example, to tbe final choruses, the gathering of the Cantons, in the second act. As for the solo rWet, it is much to te able tj say that none were positively man gled, In an opera which requires three good tenors, three 6 cod bastes, and two sopranos. Messrs. Qulnto and sutler, two German tenors, with a thorough German method of delivery, or ra'hor non-deltvery, yet filled their part very acceptably. The three basses? Ro^co, Coiletti and Muler? were about alike, and deserve neither censure nor maikcd commendation. The prima donn is, Mcsdames'Eertucci and Steffenone, were both very good. Wo io not remember to have Uktened to the toriner when ibe (ileHted us more. It is veiy pleasant to listen again to Signsr Bat'ieli's w?ll-sret?rveO. roond and full tones, even when, aa in "William Tell," ro little mere singing is required. 8i< ior Badlali stems not at hirne in the French declaim, lory style, use was not the William Tell of our imagl La1 ion j but bo was still an excellent singer, and wua tntbuslaatically listened to and applauded. Upon Sig ner L'olcioni (Arnoiooj rests the real crown of tbe evening. Bclctoni cannot te called a great singer, nir a great dramatic artist, but is evidently a well- willing, iealons man. and his voice, although nut possessing th? ro mneh talked of chest C, nor munh pjfr, has its vaatlcnes on 0, A and B, and he, con'Aqa?ntIy, at .tin irg the B fla', which transposition had substitute! for tbe C, with ease, be waa very effective in the luo of the first set and the trio of the second. Although the opera was much "cut," almost all tbe delicious ballet being omitted, it waa still very long, and it waa nearly midnight when the curtain fell. The Morning Journal of Tuesday says:? "WiUiam Tell" waa performed last evening at the Boston theatre, before a fashionable andcritisal audi ence The company <a composed of Signoraa Wteffenonc, Bertncea Maret?cK and Hlgnors Badiali, Roseo and Col letti who are well known to our opera goers, with the addition of several new names, an orchestra of 48 pieces, and a large and tfiicient chorus, in all numbering some ISO persona, snd is by far the Uig-st, and In m jst re SDecta the best Italmn troupe that we litre had the plea as re of bearing in thia city. Frcm tbe wrll known ability of the author, the com mendntory nottcea of thepreasin New York (where the oiitra has been performed to overflowing houses for a fortnight past), and the novelty of new voices and a new work, we went to tbe tbeatre with high expects, tions of a rare treat, and although aoms of our f?r?aoie rone nsione bad to b'ar air>*n<?m?nt. yet we received im prerriona of excellence in tbe whole repiesentatfon. Therfife of "Willl*m Tell," bj Badiall, we expected would be ably repreeen'ed, and were not ? Isappoints i. Hie nob'e voice and easy action makes him % host in whatever part he undertakes Alwaya prompt and re Babie, and singing invariably in tune, ttiere is no won d?-r ho bus become such a general favorite lie receiv il freqnent and merited applause throughout his arduous part. Tbe other principals sustained their parts quite accep tably, and we would notice especially the new tenor, Bolcioni, who poramcs a voice of nueb aiveetnees amd ctmpass, executing bis entire part with his chest voice A change in tbe price of ticaets to tbe opera is aa nounced by the manngt rs Tne parquetteanl first cir cle icmt>n at 91 bO tud $1, wh>le the second circle and amphitheatre are reluced to i>0 and 26 senta This is a judicious ebnege, and will aiTord all classes an opportu nity to patromsa this elegant entertainment. It slioul I be borne in mind that " W'lUam Tell" la promised but once more ? to morrow night ? for which perfcrm tnce tie tlcketa are now telling quite briakiy at Wade'a musie atore. llnrtllaiifaiu Forrlfpi It< m?. 7be King of Prusna hti presented to the library ef Trinity College, Dublin, the splendid araoiteetural work*: ?
