Our information of Mr. Buchanan's movements at \\ ashington is of the most interesting character. It appears that his presence has aleady bail llio most happy eff?>ct in calming down he belligerent propensities of the wrangling cliques and spoilsmen of the hopeful democracy. They hare discovered that they and the broken democracy owe more to Mr. Bnchanau lor ibeir narrow recap* in his election thau he owes o them?they hare found out that the President elect intends to be the master of hi? position, and the Tiruet.cal bead of his administration; and we presume they have made the additional discovery that he will dispense with the underground establishment of a Kitchen Cabinet. Conspicuous among the latter-day saints of the donocratic church who have made th'ir way to Wa?l ingtoa through the snow, to nay their respect* to thvir anointed chieftain, is Governor Wi-e i ' Virginia. Democrats who had never seen lh< Governor before have beeu surprisingly taken aback in his presence. They had supposed liirn t ' I" tfii ible giant, arnud cap-a pie. bearded like n and blustering like a bully. (in the contrary, he ha? appeared among tbein nther a thin, delicate ard weakly looking man. amiable, inoffensive. and g?ntle as a Methodist preacher niter n good revival; and instead of Istiling over with swords, guns, bayonet*, niggers, secession, disuniou and civil war. beautifully dissolving in the milk and hooey of brotherly lore. .vuch have lieen the good influences of the mere contact ol the warlike Governor with the pacific President elect. The Heta-j A. Wise of some two years ago. with Lis low. nu an. vulgar and ungentlemrnly abuse from the stump : nay. more, the Governor Wise of !a?t ?nmm< r. with his fire-eatiug. disunion bravado, froth, fuss nod fury about his niggers and the price ol nigfleis. is not the same' Governor Wise that has visited Mr liticlianan at Wheatland and at Washington.

Tlti- is a gr< at and good example of the benig i influence of the new dispensation already. It is significant of much good accomplished and of Utbr things to come. We bail this sign a- u mighty c\id< ncc in support of our faith in Mr. Buchanan's l.ancaster declaration again?t all sectional factious and parties.

Thia masterly programme will, of course, comprehend a aeries of measure? foreign and domeatic. of an eminently national and conservative character, with a due regard, meantime, to our legitimate commercial and political prosperity and progress. According to our advices, Mr. Iiu< hanan will make no definite designation of his Cabinet until be aliall hare submitted his researches and conclusion" at Washington to the refining crucible at Wheatland. In the meantime, it seems, from the conversations, inquiries, remarks, compliments, hints, suggestions, opinions. Ac., of the President elect at Washington, that some pretty shrewd guemes may Is. made, at least In respect to the more prominent members of his nrnistry. Wc are not impatient: for wc await the official raw YORK HERALD, TUES proclamation of the new Cabinet without par- k tiality, anxiety or fear. n The formation of the Cabinet, however, and the ? settlement of the law for the division of the spoils t among the brethren will constitute only a part 3 of the unmedia'c responsibilities of Mr. Bncha- t nan. The more important principles, foreign and domestic, which are to form the general policy of his administration, must he fixed upaB at the outset, and clearly laid down in kin inaugural ' address. Inasmuch, too, as this course will com- ' maud the confidence of the country and the 4 respect of the world, we have no doubt, 0 that Mr. Buchanan will adopt it t? the ftillest practicable extent. We are entirely inclined to believe that bis inaugural will be a calm, deliberate. bum jidt. ted free exposition of the purposes of his administration, foreign and domestic, and that they will place the party supporting the administration upon a broadens loftier, stronger and more enduring Union and constitutional platform than that which any such party has occupied since the time of Monroe. The quiet retirement of the shades of Wheatland will 1 e the proper place, therefore, for this careful setment of the metes and boundaries of this new dispensation. Our intelligent readers are well aware that all the old party issnes and party lines upon banks, e?b-trea?uries. tariffs, public lands and internal improvements, have become " obsolete ideas''? that, in fact, at this day the controlling lines of party demarcation are sectional lines, and that niggers, niggers, North and Booth, are the paramount question with a demoralized and discordant democracy and a divided opposition. We all hiiu>v izittt auiiu uiu cuiuumuu ui ui?eta uuuiimjiiug materials, Mr. IJ ichanan has been elected? we all know. too. that by the'ycar of grace 1860 there must be a complete reconstruction of parties. Nor is this all: We know that what this reconstruction ami new division of parties is to be will be determined to a great extent by the acts and measures, as weighed with the pledges ml promises of this incoming administration. In this view, the fatal crimes, follies and blunders of poor Pierce stand out life bnoys and beacons to the President elect, pointing him out the shoals and breakers. Mr. Buchanan will accordingly fall back from poor Pierces road to ruin, tack ship, and, steering by the chart and compass of the Union and the constitution, he may contemplate the future with a clear conscience, though alter him should come the Deluge. Tun Cukvaueb Wikose os His Travels.? We see it stated in some of the smaller city journals that Chevalier WikofT was the writer of the letter sent l>y Madame de W'ilhorst to the editor c of this paper. Whether or not this is the fact is a matter ol little consequence to the public. Tlic ^ letter was well written?it was entirely appro- 81 priate to the occasion?it came with admirable * grace from the young and charming prima donn t, and had a deep and abiding effect on the public mind. We rather eu?pect. however, that the Chevalier Wikoff in those latter days has much heavier irons in the fire than pretty prima dunnr. tenors, opera managers or other elegant articles of the same description. We under stand that he has been during the past few weeks in Philadelphia engaged in settling his private affairs in relation to the fortune left him by his father. When the Chevalier at his majority came into his inheritance it amounted to abeut one hundred and fifty thousand dollars, the greater part of which he spent in seeing and mixing with the highest society, in all parts ot Europe, from Lands End to Moscow, from Stoekolm to Constantinople. The remnants of this fortune don't amount to much, but the Chevalier has enlarged his resources by bringing his literary talents into the market A fair specimen of the Cuevalier's talent in this way has recently been given to us I. uu a ? iu ms jvuvt'iiiuiui ? ituviiJK i/nitcujavi'i. The Chevalier is now. we understand. in Waahiugton. taking his final leave of Marcy preparatory to another visit to France and Russia, wnere the Chevaliers services may Iks of the greatest importance in bringing altout the uew alliance between the Kmperorti During the autumn of 1r%6 Wikoft visited Russia. lie a its traced fro ji thence to Berlin, from which city he suddenly disappeared through the door of the Russian F.inbaasy. He was missing during three weeks, and was believed to have gone to St. Petersburg and to have had a private interview with Ncsaelrode. He returned to Paris and placed hims " in communication with the French goveruinen . Soon after this the first intimations of peace were beard from Prince Napoleon and other stock jobbers about the Tuilcri'W. They then saw the necessity of making peace, because France had gained all the glory that could )>c acquired iu the Crimean campaign, and it was neces?a v to check British ambition in the sain" quarter. They all then commenced spoc.i lating in stocks. under the full belief that pea tu near at hand, a* the remit proved. T' > Cbcaalicr Wikotl baa already proved his agen' in bringing aliout the rnimir cordial* betwe> i Palmcrstoo and the Kmperor of the French; a id since his quarrel with Palmrrston he woo'd probably be very willing to see a still closer alliance between France and Russia. Therefore, as soon as he ha* finished b.s liusin at Washington, and taken an affectionate far well of Marcy. we expect to hear that he is o* for the Continent to commence his operation* o a large scale, and that he will befom a great while, furnish ns with another volunv of ' The Adventures of a Roving Diplomatist," wh oh will I* still more interesting, graphic, pi-juan t and readable than the first. Piin.AnKi.rntA Btit.i, Frown Ur.?Some t'rne ago certain rash speculators gave the Philalelphian* a line of screw steamers to ply between the 1&t natned fresh water seaport and Liverpool. After running the line for a few months, it was ascertained that the rhiladtlphian* were altogether too provincial in their Mean to auppori such a luxury as a line of oceaa steamer*, and two of the ships were transferred to New York, leaving only two for Philadelphia. One of these, the City of Manchester. has just arrived below Philadelphia, but on account of the ice in the Delaware she could not reach the city. She therefore turned about and made the best of her w ay to this port. It seems as If the very elements combined in favor of New York, and the severity of tho weather, which so materially interferes with inland and city retail trade, absolutely drives to our harbor foreign commerce intended for other citios. The Philadclphians may as well give it up. They cannot support a line of ocean steamers . and when one is sent to them, by way of letting them down easily, she cannot reach ber dock, because the merchants hare not public spirit enough to keep the channel open.

The public will find elsewhere the latest deveopementa in regard to this horrible affair. It is inpoeible even to hazard a coqjecture, where irror might be bo cruel and unjust; but the more >ne sees of the evidence, the clearer does it ap>ear that the victim was not assassinated by oomnon professional robbers. A thousand indicaions point to quarters far higher. Ilut we must lot invade the province of the Coroner and his ury. It is not correct, as certain of our cotemporaies seem to desire to do, to instance this murder is an evidence of the looseness with which jusace is administered and the police authority enorced in the city. There is no reason to believe hat a million of policemen, trained to the perfection of efficiency, would have saved Dr. Burlell's life. Nor in all probability would that

ife have been saved had the murderer possessed i far stronger conviction in the justice of our lav :ourts than their recent, practice permits any one o entertain. So lar as the evidence already adluced enables one to judge, the prospect of deection was calmly and deliberately viewed by be murderer. There is no trace of precipitation mywhere. The victim wa? strangled, till death DMied; to make matters sure, a dirk was stock n his throat; to make matters more sure, the itab was repeated fourteen times, till the x>dy and even the room and the floor were all bedabbled with blood. Then ill evidence of the crime was effaced, rrue, the knife or dirk was not made away with )r destroyed; bnt this wi' the only mistake comnitted. In all other respects, the crime stands is one of the most perfectly planned and successully executed outrages on record?as one of hose outrages which no prudential foresight, and io official guardianship could possibly prevent. It may indeed serve as the text, or rather nhe illustration to a sermon on the moral er of New York society. For, making every alowancc lor the numbers of moral and pious amilies in this city, both rich and poor, from ?ifth avenue to avenue A, it is doubtful whether iny place in the world contains as many house* ebere such crimes as this murder could be planted, and executed, as this metropolis of ours. Vhether any other city contains an equal num >er of women, in what is called society, witn a ertain kind of manner?, and a sor? of education, ut utterly devoid of principle and virtue. Vhetber any otlier city, large or email, iB ruled ocially by a more wretched and vile clique?in he shape of society?and more u=- d to worship rhatever is contemptible and loa isome. It is hard to say what influence this general ?erniciottsnesB of atmosphere may have on individual cases; but we can quite understand that he material out of which murderers are made nust be more plentiful in a community there principle is loose and scant han in one where it is strict ind universal. We do not find, on studying his,ory. that religion has always engendered a reipect for the moral law; on the contrary, in many nstances it would appear as though crime and JhrNtianity went apace. But wo do find that, in onimunitics whose general moral tone has been ligli, a remarkable diminution in crimes of bruality has taken place. And it would not seem mreasonablc to infer, according to the same rule, hat in communities who's- moral tone is low. 'ucb crimes will abound. We have every reason to be'Icvc that no small portion of the responsibility for the decay of viruc in New York rests upon our clergy.

Shoals of Virginia politicians are here: Kdltors, to seek an interest la the new organ; ex membora of Congress and editors la pursuit of foreign mixtions?to France, Naples, St. Petersburg, or Tlmbnctoo. All sorts of storlos are told or Wise; that be protests against Hunter; assails Walker, Ocbb, Bright, 81'dell and Forney?vows eternal war ir either Is taken Into the Cabinet. There Is a good deal of bosh In nil Una. Wise is not such an ass as sotno would have world believe. It is oontldered curious that Mr. Baohanaa did not dine with Senator Diuglas to-day. Tbo feet pi oduoed a sensation. I have talked with politicians from all sections; those who have seen Mr. Baehaaaa, and those who have not yet called npoa him. One set Is about as well poeted as the other. Some think Oass h*s still a chance for the 8tste Depart meat. I tell you be Is too old; he wont do. But Dn-llng the man for Premier la, I guess. Old Buck's greatest trouble. It la a dllticult job. The other plaoes can be easily filled from the Immense amount of timber In the country. The State Department is the seal of the Cabinet. Marcy, Pickens, Hunter, Cobb, Case, and others, arc mentioned for the place. Cobb's friends want him there, but I am under the Impression that they will fall. I have no doubt, however, of Cobb's going Into the Cabinet, but not as Premier. There Is a good deal eald of Forney's cbances. He is spoken offer Postmaster General. There .s too macb opposition to btm; I do not bellevo he will get the plaoe. The opposition eqpaes from the South. Forney, however, will be taken care of. There Is a great straggle from the Weet. The West, you know, han atroag claims upon Buchanan, la liana and Illinois loomed op splendidly last Nivember tor Old Back. The moet promtneat man from that section la Bright, of Indiana. If there are any ngna In election returns, snow storms, and cold snaps, Brtght's chance is decidedly rood. Eat If he should be rc elected to the 8enate, another wilt take the place assigned to him in the Cabinet. According to pre Tb I Wkll/f I WBVIM, U1BUV/ ??WUW3, Ull|UI ted Toucey are the blfbetl on the Cabinet list. It la said that Mr. Buchanan will leave lor home to-morrow, without deciding on a single member or his Cabinet.
