WAgHWOTOH, Aug. 14, 1859. 1 I etP'itrlics received from l/oodoo announce that the negotiations iu regard to (Vntral America are progressing | favorably, although nothing as yet decided exce;>t the assent or both Franco and Kuglaad to a treaty of amity and commerce with Honrtu-ns This treaty has no novel feature, escort (hat it embodies the Honduras proposals v.'hich appeared in the Herald some vrueics sioco. Tie arrangement in respect to the Bay Islanlg trill be Id the form of a convention, and it will start from this Inexorable condition? the rendition of tho inlands to Bondura;. That is the r*>>?*t of departure, and unless it be conceded nothing will bo done. The EiiKh'h Cabinet, as a whole, are ready to procoed OB this basis; but Pulmerston, with his usual penchant for showing light, makes ail tlie fuss he can against the arrangement in tho Armomitt and Otobe. Tho Ti.iwj, Fern, and Adverliwr, however, all go In strong for the arrangement, Pairaorston naturally does not like to see i:s pet fo!icj|in Central America fall without an eilort, f .not to prevent it, at least to make for It the best ??rms possible. For tli is reason bis agents are making efforts to bay .'.uatan, In part as a sot oil' against alleged debts ol Hon 'urai. This dodgo won't succeed; but we will do well ! o be on our guard. Paimcr.t <n's tools in this business 1 are the &>u(ti Ameruan Bondholders' Committee, in Lon ) don, who are uow engaged in manufacturing claims 1 Against Honduras, to be urged as requiring an eitm'alcnt ' n the Islands. ' It is geuerally known that one of Mr. Webster's latest acts wai to Indorse a geographical blunder in rolation to 1 "inn guano islands cialmod by Peru, where a company of New York speculators intended to mike their fortunes. ; iir. W pare the opnton that these islanlg were free to "?I nav'gators, and so Mr. Alfred 6.

' < r 'I resolution adopted to-day, be resumed at tho next gfc.,(iion Mr. l'caroc aubmitted an important resolution call..'1* Tor the action of the government in regulating woigliU and measure. The Finance Committee reported to day the Poet ofllco appropriation bill as it camo from the House, without a single amendmeut. A resolution was submitted calling for the printing or Ave thousand copies c f the commercial statistics and do cuments, for circulation. These statistics are exceedingly valuable. The House bill for the extension of Adams' patent w%< passed by the Senate to day, thug recognising the pria siple of pvtent exteuslotf by Congress. iSenatcr Italian's contested election was called up to day, and referred to the Judiciary Committee. The \ues tlon involved is, whether the Legislature, when In joint i-e^slon. could adjourn over from the day llxed by law l'or the election of Senator. It will bo decided affir matively. The civil approprlat.on bills are now running the gauntlet between the two houses. The Senate his made sundry amendments to the one providing for publio im provements. Tho House determined to discontinue military superintendents over pub'.lc work?. The Senate dissents by a large majority. In the discust ion on this point ?Senators Seward, Hunter, Case and Houston paid deserved compliments to the gentlemen lu charge of the Capitol ox tension, the latter gentleman contending for tho princi ple of civil superintendents, but proposing to make G'apt. Meigs and others exceptions to the rule. The two houses dliu-r widely on this point, and it will prove a trouble some one to settle bet u tbem. Another ameudmeut was an appropriation of nine thousand live hundred dollars for the purchase of sixty copies of Audubon's 'Birds of America, "to ho pNMOted to such foreign governments as have presented valuablo [ boo*;- to ours. Due hundred thousand dollars was added, fbr the purchase of threo stores at the Atlantic wharf, in New York. These stores are now leased; the amonnt,tobo | ]?aid for the unejpired lease is two hundred and ten thou .jaiid dollars. The Ice can be purchased for one hundred I thousand. * The naval appropriation bill was submitted to a Com ; mittee of Conference, arranged and passed, and now or ly awaiti the signature ol the President to become a law. The bill prov. tea for publishing the cbart3 of tho .'-a Matte and Behrtng'a Striita expeditious, and appro priates upwards Of eleven millions of dollars tor the naval service. Ti e President to day asked for an appropriation of s?ven hundred and fifty thousand dollars for the Capitol extension until the 4tb of March next. The Postmaster General re; ort> that the strictest in I luiry has been set on loot to ascertain, If possible, who are gutity of purloining books and public documents | from the malls, and that the severest punishment will bo .ntiicted. The civil appropriation bill, with a second edition of ! black ri tors, was sent to the Senate to-day, and by that oody referred to the F nanc^ Committee. This is the im portant appropriation bill, and over it will ba the great contest, The new post routo bill was reported In the House by Mr. Mace, and passed, providing for one thousanl new rentes. 14 goes to the Senate, where it will revive large additions. t The bill providing for the payment of the California war Vonds war voted down In the House to-day, clearly under a misapprehension. It appropriates ni money, but only directed how cine hundred thousand dol'^rs already ap- ? I'ropriited is to be paid out California Is paying seven I dolj&rs interest ptr month on this debt, and tho money is tocke I rp In the t'cascry here. The ciu nwuit.' >>*fbre Cjcgress are get ting furious, and some of them even despair of receiving iiujtl ;cg this session. I never witnessed before such an outside pressure as I have seen to-day? the friends of tome part cular scheme, threatetucg la kill ofl some other one unless they yteid to them. This was manifest in a number of the lea oner ? the Pac tic Railroad, M.nue sot* Railroad, and the jut' nt extensions. Senator r'uh will be out In a day or two with a letter In favor of I'remont for Pre?'!eat. A large accession of lobby member* arrived this eve ning. hdwin Crovwell arrived thu miralrj, an I is "top .n* at Willard's. The democrats anticipate that a sufficient number tf the republicans will secede for practical purpose*, from the Kansas restrictive amendments to the appropriation lulls; while on the contrary the republicans declare they will cont.nue in solid phalanx without wavertig. Tb? last veto of the President is of ths bill to Improve the Patapco river, Maryland. Vetoes have qeromeso common as tocxcite no surprise. The mileage an I per diem due to Gov. Boeder amount to a little over ?l 000. THMTl'-FOCRTII COSGRCSS. riiurr session. Bcaate. Wawxgtos. A s|j>t 11, 1SJ5. portiujt or jony iukpti*.

He 'aid the old battle cry ol -'wbgs" was, in - deed, cheering. A Von*? (Indeed it is.) It was so, even though they only rally a broken legion.

Tfcu mectiug, and t!ie po-duon of ibt<e against whose treasonable conduct thay ha I then ris?r, were sufficient justittcation now of their action at that time.
