EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON OITY^ thtxmdat Arravoo* April a JT7" ADTOTMBMMrw should be banded 1-1 ky 12 o'clock, M., otherwise they may not appear until the next day. SPTfclf OP THI U jAK 1HG PRESS The Union's leader to-day U a succinct article, explaining why the President signed the hill for the removal of the obstructions in the Savannah river below the eity, when at tha same time he vetoed the bill for deepening the ohannel over the St. Clair fiats and of the St. Mary s river in the 8tate of Michigan. We regret *h?t we are so at a loss for space to-day a* to prevent us from quoting liberally from t?e article in question, inasmuch as It is doubt less an official exposition of the reasons on whioh the President wishes the pablio to un derstand that he acted, in that case. To sum it up, however, we may say that the faot that the obstructions in the Savannah river were notoriously placed there as a means of defence In the Revolutionary war Induced him to sign that bill, while the faot that the other em braced more than one improvement?bore on its fsoa evidence that it was a log-rolled bill -indaocd him to vetc it. All who value the integrity of the Government of the United States more than their neighborhood interest, approve his action in this ease, notwithstand ing the clamor against it of the newspapers and politicians of the vicinage in which the vetoed improvements were proposed to have been made. The Intelligent argues to show that our n libuiters keep Cuba in a constant sUte of practioal war alarm to superinduce, we pre sume, the inference that Spain is justified in her measures against our citisens on the island and those by whioh she interferes with our oommerce in the West Indies, beyond her law ful jurisdiction. The Intelligencer also insists that the French account of the declaration to the Cortes of the intention of the Spanish Gov ernment with reference to slavery in Cuba, is incorrect, and quotes the aoc^rznt which La Cromea vthe organ of Spain in Hew York) gives of the proceedings in question, to prove tha: they em braced-not a notification of in tention to abolish slavery on the island?but a guarantee that the institution shall remain untouched there for all time, while the Span ish Government will in future strictly observe its treaty obligations to put down the African slave tiado. Iho Insult to the Ladies of the Roxbury Female bchool A full account of this so deplorably dis graceful affiir will be found on our first page It is from the Boston Daily Advertiser. the journal of Boston wbich commands most of the respect and confidence of the people of that oity.

British Recruits for the Crimea ?The des perate, and, indeed, forlorn condition of the British Government, just at this time, and the indisposition of the "bone and sinew" of tho ? fast anehored Isle" (maugre all the puffs of the oourt papers as to the (<lojal enthusiasm" of the working classes and the popularity of the war) is strikingly exemplified in tho efforts of British agents to prooare recruits for the Crimean army in the United States. Inas much as the English, Irish, Scotoh and Welsh, ' surplus population," are baokward la re sponding to the oalls of Palaeriton, Panmure 4 Co. to become food for Russian powder, or what is quite as unprofitabtp^nd disagreeable, to be volunteer victims for the oholora, on the inhospitable shores of tho Euxine, the British ministry are striving, as during our revolu tionary contest, to purchase "foreign mercena ries, ' and have even ventured upon the experi ment of seeking to entice oome of our adven turous and martial young men to enlist under the red oross of St. George. To be furnished a field for martial exploit, and thereby ob tain military renown, is a seductive stimulant to this class of our fellow oitiiens; but we doubt amasingly whether, even if no deter* gents like those administered by the polico of New York and Philadelphia last week, in the form of arreets of the parties concerned in such infractions of our laws, had been pre scribed by. our Exeeutive and judieial func tionaries, the sucoee? of tho British recruiting agents would have been immensely favorable. Certain we are that they would hare sedueed but few men of any account, or that wo could not advantageously spare, even if they never returned. Most of our youths of a military turn, by the time they are one and twenty, are not ignorant of the art of war, so far as books can teach it and many of twenty-five have seen actual service on the frontiers and in Mexico; and all have from eight years of age received continued lessons in these pre eminent schoo s ?toe American volunteer militia. Our very urohins train with shot guns by ? hemselves,. in companies raised at school, under oaptain3 of their own election. Unlike the youths of England, they can handle the rifle from the age of twelve. They are com petent to judge between an efficient and use ful commissarj, and one who is laay, ignorant, incompetent, and worthless; and between sur geons and physioians who know how to do and who strive to do their duty, and medical and surgical empirics who, with brutish selfishness ire iiule for the sufferings of the private sol diers if they can only secure their own ease and comfort. Nor are our intelligent young ice.i eager to place themselves under tho com inacd oi generals or other officers not capable of giving orders so that they can bo readily understood, or incapable of understanding an order when received, in one of which catego ries, it seems, one or the other of two lieuten ant generals of the British army, or both, now stand. Our notion is, that titles, and rank, and decorations do net make soldiers, much less he. roes The bestowal of insignia of this kind by royal favor, or their acquisition by hereditary ri^ht, does not confer in .elleot or skill on tho3e who may wear them Sense is the gift of the Almighty ; and tho stuff of which Americans generally are composed, and which, under the ijeuial influence of our free, republican insti tutions, streng.hens with age, is not the ? >^ht material for an army officered as that of the British Government seems to be at this t;ice i& the Crimea Poor purveyors, wor3e commanders, and a still more miserable gen eral directory at home! If our Yankee militia were to join them, the very first thing thej would insist upon would be to have a new .Uctton of leaders in order to procure some ^ ia whom they could ieposo oonlidcnce, and I Who wculd not blindly and stupidly, or rashly, . eienfice them by inexcusable negligence and improviience, or still more indefensible foilv 1 ? recklessness The masses of an army must hare full confidence in tho chiefs, and toe officers must possess the respect and affec tion of tho individual private soldier, to insure victory. This it was that made Casar's le mons invincible. This was the secret of the great Napoleon s glorious triumphs in a hun dred battles against the best troops of Britain tnd of continental Europe. This contributed to give Wellington the p.im ,f victory u aterloo, and his memorable command " Un ^uard* and at 'em," though not found In any military h nd book, i. an illustration of the verity of our remarks. And under Proridence i c was the love and confidence of the American army and their heartfelt conviction of the holiness of the cause for which they fought end that the God of Justice would bo on their ?ide, that bore our Washington and his com patriots through every vicissitude of the eight jears eventful struggle that won our indepen dence ; and the same impregnable rampart, as well as eotton bales, surrounded the illustrious Jackson when he repelled the invaders of his country's soil at New Orleaas. What a beautiful oommentary the sinister attempt, recently deteoted, of British emis saries to prooure recruits in this country for the eastern army, is upon tho accusation and reproaches for yoars past extensively made by the British Government and British press against us, on account of the propensity?' some of our fellow-citisens to " extend the area of freedom,'' in disregard sonlewhat ? the duty of neutrality between other and bel ligerent nations, or between en Oppressed people strugg ing to be free and their oppres ?ors Mark ! there have been from the foun dation of this Government stringent aots of Congress to enforce the obeervanoo of striot neutrahty and suppress filibustering, a rict which, we are free to confeee, we inherit (we fear for our poae^ in this and the other world in somewhat too eminent a degree) from our Anglo-Saxon forefathers. And yet, the police reperts of last week in New York and Phila delphia, show that a Lieutenant Governor and other high functionaries of the adjaoent Brit ish colonies, and agents of the British Govern ment,* have in theee cities, in the faoe of, and in defianeo of, those statutes, opened recruit ing rendesvous for "Yankee volunteers," to be shipped after enlistment first to Halifax in Nova Sootia, and then to Crim Tartary, to help John Bull and the French and Turks and Egyptians and Zouaves take Sebastopol some time next summer or fall, (if over,) and gene rally to fight those battles which the English people, it is thus admitted, are unwilling or incompetent to do. Our neutrality and oar "eufaiity laws, it seem*, ere of trifling mo ? _or con*i<*?ration, except when a rigid ?T "N"Cra vrnce the American mJ?1* t0 ??n city in the businees 00 C0?pH Government will require fh.'nf? l,h6 Feder*1 British i fficers concerned whJ?i oL*11 this oountry or elsewhere. feeding in adherence to the one, and a atriot enforcement of the other may be insisted upon bj Britiah rulers to calm their jealous apprehensions of our progress. The Britiah eeem to think theae laws and the lave of nationa may rightfallj be dispensed with for their benefit The peat oourae of the Britiah aristocraoy towarda the people of thia country, ohimea most beautifully with the proeeeding juat re ferred to. The paucity in numbera of onr regular standing army, the imputed inefficien cy of what41 Ox-yoke Hay," the Marquia of Tweedale (,a few teoonda before he received at Lundy'a Line " a bullet and twa buok shot" in hia aeat of honor,) called, in hia broad Scotoh, the "dommed gray bocked Yank ay Molaehay," has been the oooaaional theme of Britiah parliamentary oratera, and of the Brit iah press, and of the Britiah aimy officers, ever since the war of 1812. Since that era, they have said leaa of our navy, and have even found out that moat of onr beat navy offioera are actually of Britiah anoestry. All that are old enough to remember their oonduot to us thirty, and forty, and fifty years ago, have n^t yet departed, and the deaoendanta of thoae who hart gone, read hiatory. We will not, however, preaa these matters. We are con vinced that most of the American, people are diapoaed to allow ancient wronga and ipjuries and insults to be buried with thoae who per petrated them. The grave?f>ay8 all debts. It is enough that each generation demands atone ment for aggresaiona upon itself. Well! well! we are oontent with thia. Be it ao. Let by gones be by.gones. Jonathan will, like the virtuous son of Noah, walk backward and throw a blanket over the anoient vices and nakedness of hia indiscreet parent. The pec* pie of the United States can afford to do thia. No one ahould ever harshly advert even to the burning of Washington in 1814, nor in any wise ezoept as.a mere " historical inci dent," like the oapture of the Querriere, Java, Macedonian, Ao , Ac. The Intelligent cer seta an admirable example in thia respect. Admiral Cockburn, in 1814, knocked that offico into pi, and yet the worthy editors har bor no personal malice, but pass over the affair as a mere event in the fortunes of war. Really a calm, enlightened, and reflecting statesman will, if he weighs the matter well, aodn per ceive that affair was of decided profit to thia country. Who,' except claim agents and trea. sury weasels, care a fig for the few hundred barrels of old musty papers that were burned in the Capitol and in the publio offices. The original, " Declaration of Independence," and the " Constitution of the United Statea," were not destroyed. Besides, we are a Christian people, and the event alluded to will afford us an opportunity, probably before many years paas away, of manifcating by our con duct a brilliant and glorioua illustration of the heaven-desoended rule of 11 returning good for evil," and in this respect, of setting the first example to the nations of the earth of the practice of that holy and cardinal vir tue?forgiveness of those " who trespass against us. It is not by any means impossible that even the present generation may witness old Albion soliciting Brother Jonathan to lend her a helping hand, and tend her a few thousands of our western hunters, with Hartley's deadly rifle, that will kill an enemy at 1600 yards, to prevent some of her continental neighbors, (and as likely France as any.) from turning her out of house ani home. If Jonathan makes up his mind to go into said speculation, we rcckon he will not fail to 11 do his duty, up to the handle;" and it is quite as certain that he will, as that he will not consider it best to engage in the cause of the English people, when the crisis comes. Some how or other our folks generally, (except the Irish who have good cause for detesting the British, the French who have an unextinguisliable hered itary hatred of them, notwithstanding the present temporary alliance; and the German Ked Republicans who despise all monarchies and monarchists,) every now and then exhibit c. strong likation for the land of Shakspeare, and Milton, and Sidney, and Hampden, and Pym, and for the venerable oommon law, and magna charta and several things of the olden rime. Our children read the life of Robin Hood, and the history of St. George and the Dragon. Our young lawyers study Coko and Lyttleton, and Somers, and Bacon, and Holt, and fla'e, and learn to denounce Jeffreys, and .^croggs and Bromley. There are a great many of our citisens whose great-great-grand fathera aerved the Lord under Cromwell at Marston, Naaeby, Preston, Dunbar and Wor cester. We have even seen Yankee pride displayed in narrating thefaot that the author of the first British navigation act, in the Lord Protector's time, whioh law is said to be the toundation of England's maritime greatness, was a Salem boy named Downing, and that Lord Chancellor Lyndhurst and his daddy, the painter Copley, and the painter West, were all Yankee born. Though the English aris tocracy and some of those who ape them for profit from other parts of the British realm than England proper, do abuse and berate us and our institutions?though such titled scrib blers aa the mendaoioua Mahoy, (the blood kin of a disgraced Britiah navy officer that broke his parole of honor as a prisoner in the Revolutionary war,) the blathering Sir Henry Bulwer, (who hates us because we laughed at him,) and the egestive Elgin, (who dislikes us because we detected him as a snob,) may be impudent and scurrilous, and lie about us; though the British Government will be con. tinually patting flies in our soup, and med dling about Cuba and the Sandwich Islands and the like, and will still keep up the duty on tobaooo 1200 per cent ad valorem, whilst they prate of ?? free trade,V we are really in clined to believe that if the British rulers would even now change their conduct, and mind their own business, when stern peril en compasseth round the white cliffs of Albion, as it most assuredly will before the year 1900, our folks will spontaneously rally with a hurrah from Passamaquoddy to the Rio Grande, and rash to the resoue of the " old mother country" with stars and stripes flying aloft and all sorts of musical instruments play ing " Yankee Doodle" and " Hail Columbia" in first rate style. There are some, who,* not disposed to interfere on any other ground, will readily take a hand in the rumpus for the reason given by the loving husband who assisted his better half in a tussle with a neigh bor, because he would " not let anybody lick her but himself," and also he did not want her " kept from her knitting." But want of room compels us to cut short, pomewbat abruptly, what we have written, and defer its further publication till to-mor row. We shall then resume the subject in continuation of what we have above said. Mr. Coule ? It is well known here that the statement that Mr. Soule intends publishing a history of his minion, which the How York Herald put forth on Tuesday last, hu not tho slightes foundation in truth It WM asserted only in the hop* ef inducing him so to do. Tho Herald hu steadily urged, every possible art to draw Mr. Soule into a eontroverij with anybody and everybody in the Oweroment, and has only sueceeded In earning that gen tleman g unmitigated oontempt and disgust at the mendacity of its labors. An Important Question as to the Payment of Interest due on United States Stocks Bot tled?Application was made by an attorney to receive interest on United States stocks be longing to, and standing in the nnme of the wife of the person gtring the power, the has band and wife being foreigners, the latter having died in Mexioo. The husband, after the death of his wife, give a power to his agent in New York "to sell any stook standing iu his name on the books of any company in the United States, and the difidends on the same," Ao. Under this power, letters of administration were applied for and obtained by the attorney from the surrogate in New York, and payment of the dividends olaimel by the agent from the Assistant Treasurer under said letters ox administration. An adverse decision was given at the Trea sury Department on the following grounds, among others? 1. By the revised statutes of Nor York, ad* ministration is directed to be granted to the husband or the wife's personal estate. 2 There must be a written renunoiation by the party having the prior right, or citation to show oause must be first issued to all persons, an<^ be duly sorted and published. 3. The administrator must enter into bonds with sufficient sureties for faithful execution of his trust, Ac. 4. If letters of administration are granted on the supposition that there is no will, and one is subsequently found, such letters are ! void. 5. It is one of the settled doctrines cf the jus gentium privatum that the distribution of the personal effeots of a decedent kte governed by the laws of the domicil, which, in the present instance, is in a foreign country. ^_6. The power of attorney, in this case, could not touch these facts, because the right of tbe husband to eonvey them, whioh might exist during the life of his wife, oeased with her demise, unless prevfeuly reduced to his pos session. The mode of propeeding in the present case ifffor the publio administrator to administer upon the assets, first giving notice to the rep reeentative of the eountry of which the deoedent was a citizen, and through him to parties in terested in that oountry. Or original letters must be taken out in that oountry and auxili ary lotters thereon in the United States The Purpose of the War ?The Paris cor respondent of the Journal of Commerce ap pends to his last letter, without a word of oom mont, the following naive paragraph : Colloquy between the Prussian Premier M. de Manteujfr.l and Lord John.?Lord J.?Nevertheless you cannot wish that Con stantinople should become a Rassian city. "M. de M ?And you ought not to wish that Constantinople should remain a French city." I It is eloquent, indeed, with meaning, and tells a secret which will create general diseon ! tent in England. Constantinople is now, prac tically, a French city. It is garrisoned by the Frenob, and Frenoh influence is at this moment, as it has been for some time, para mount there?vastly more so than English in | fluenoe ever w"s, though for many years be fore this war began, all the world aecounted the fiat of the English Minister to the Sultan's court the supreme decision under his Govern ment. French diplomaey of 1855 thus turns out to be as muoh superior to that of the Eng lish, as are the Emperor's arms to those of Britain, as manifested before Sebastopol. Seamen for the Navy.?The almost utter impossibility of obtaining seamen for the navy has forced the Government to offer $20 bounty for the enlistment of men. The advantages held out by the law to that end at the last session of Congress do not operate as was ex pected, owing to the continued scarcity of seamen." Months ago we pointed out the ne cessity for the adoption by Congress of some measures to make more Amerioan seamen out of idle boys in eities. This plan must be adopted on an extensive scale, or in five years there will not be one sueh sailor where the naval and meroantile marine will aotually re quire twenty. Held to Bail.?-James P. Barker, of Dela ware, wss held to bail in Philadelphia, on the Sd inst., for uttering and publishing a false assignment of a land warrant. This Mr. Barker was named as a captain in the new 10th regiment when the list of the appoint ments for the four new regiments was first published. We pereeive, however, that in the official list now being sent out from the War Department, there is no Mr. Barker on it The arrest noted above aeoounts for his being dropped. Tho Construct ion of tho Fxtension of the Treasury Department Building ?There is a story in circulation in Washington, that it is not the intention of the Government to prose cute this work at this time. We have every reason to believe that there is not the least foundation for this notion, which probably arose from some short answer or other given by some gentleman in office to over-pressing solicitations for plaoe in connection with this work. An Important Resignation.?It is said that Dr. Charles S. Frailey, Chief Clerk cf the General Land Office, has reeigned Knowing this estimable gentleman's health to be very bad, we believe this rumor true. It al-o seems to be thought that Joseph 8.
