I residential aspirants aud thoir parties are
now t^vuet, cautious,. and watchful. A nearer
approach lm? perhaps been mtule tq the fusion
and coafueion of parties thau ever before since
the Adams and Jackson contest arose. Here,
?it Washington, it is likely few moves arc made
by any party, excepting such as are prompted
by demonstrations from distant quarters. It is
not likely that much light will be cast upon the
subject until that luminous body, the next Con
gress, shall convene. In the mean time the
nation will get along pretty well, muI the peo
ple, if wise enough to think so, will be happy.
Widely as may differ the various systems of
governmental policy devised and supported by
the statesmen of our country, he, indeed, would

means of prostrating her energies, or materially
thwarting her prosperity. Improvement, pro
gress, increase, mark the history of each suc
cessive effort in every field of action; and for
ests fall, and fields appear, and cities grow, and
the avenues of commerce become thronged so
rapidly, that they who contemplate each change
as it occurs still behold its accomplishment in
wonder and amazement.
The time will come when theso things will
cease; when the characteristics of youth will
no longer be ours; when the policy of our
country may no longer be fashioned by the
p nshc hand of each temporary ruler or legis
lative director. But that time is far distant,
and, ere it come, the way of the American peo

Ivmds. The greatest of these will be the large
measure of prosperity enjoyed. The history of

tb??' that the Principles
upon which we act should be, not of mere ex
pediency, but of wisdom and immutable justice ?
not based upon poetic reveries, but upon the
fcage teachings of practical experience! How
essential to our permanent welfare that the
sentiments of genuine patriotism should be
realized and that the most ardent feelings of
ra erni y and afiection should animate the
bosoms of our citizens 1
A few brief months have passed since the
horison was dark around us, and the voice of
< iscord was bitter in our councils. We feared
not then for the safety of the Republic. We
feared not for its unity. We feared not
that a single star would depart from the galaxy
nor that its lustre would pale through the acts
ot its ignoble sons. But we feared for the men
whose folly and madness had urged them on,
and whose conscio.us dishonor and degradation
would forever darken the brows and chill the
hearts that should glow in triumph for their
country's welfare.
The cloud is past. The j-bople of the
Lnioi*have abisex, and even self-immolation
cannot conceal in oblivion the unsavoiy remem
ance of the men who have fallen. We will
not rejoice in their fall, nor triumph unregret
tingly ovor their defeat; but we will look around
upon the vast brotherhood of our countrymen
with a glowing breast, and hearken to their
vo.ee with a delighted ear, when we remember
that no temptation, no trial, is adequate to turn
Affections from the broad land that is shel
tered by their Constitution, or obliterate from
their hearts the fealty they owe to this revered
and sacred chart of their nation's freedom and
its greatness.
tile telegraphs.
The Eledric Telegraph and the American Tele
graph are very different concerns. The former
is American, to be sore, but the latter is a quiet,
prudent, industrious little journal, that will do
good and faithful service without electrifying
any body ; and yet it is aided very much by its
clcctrical namesake. Whoever will keep his eye
on our despatches, will find that we have a sum
mary of all the important news of the country
down to a veiy late hour of the day.
1 he people of Washington are assured that all
the money they may expend with as shall be
devoted to the improvement of our paper and
the extension of all it# facilities.
Squire Smith yesterday issued a warrant for
the arrest of Jim Lile, a villanous colored fel
low, for making an assault of a brutal character
on a girl of his own color. Officer Wollard ar
rested him, but he fought so fiercely that his
resistance brought out another warrant, and,
with officer liandy's aid, he was soon put in
limbo. "*
Charles Klopkar, a crazy old Frenchman, whom
we thought 'Squire Smith had secured for a
month a few days ago, was again brought up
yesterday to the same functionary, and sent to
jail, to await his trial for an assault and riotous
conduct at Stultz's tavern, on 9th street. Old
Charlie was making a fair attempt to demolish
the whole house when arrested.
Better order has prevailed in the city of Wash
ington for several months past, than has been

Tint Htm \ osk Finrmkm made good nse of
their time while here yesterday. They saw

visited Alexandria and Mount Vernon, and saw
Fort Washington from the river. Returning to
the city kno late for the afternoon train to
Baltimore, they were entertained at the United
Statee Hotel, in fine style, by a number of our
citizen?; and, at a little before ten o'clock at
night, departed for Baltimore in an extra train.

In quoting the following from the New York
Sun of yesterday, wo desire to express our
hearty concurrence in the sentiments it ex

for the oppressed, and with our people the
patriot and friend of liberty, come from what

The character of Kossuth is of an exalted
kind, and his unsuccessful struggle in behalf of
his country against ruthless tyranny has covered
?his name with imperishable honor:
" Our readers are aware that our Government
has sent out instructions to our Minister at
Constantinople, authorizing him to employ one
of the national vessels belonging to the fleet
now cruising in the Mediterranean, to convoy
Kossuth and his companions to the United
States, should the Sublime Porte consent to
grant them their release. From the previous
conduct of his Sultanic Majesty, we cannot en
tertain any doubt of his embracing the offer
of our Government, and allowing the exiled
lunganans and Poles, now residing in his do
minions, to embark for the United States. Anv
hesitation or delay on the part of the Sultan
would bo inconsistent with his previous conduct
and promises, and would tend to alienate the
good opinions which his noble and humane in
ST w ?r betalfoLf.the "frgees hns called
litnn ? mtj,erefore think that the Sultan will
act up to his promises; and, consequently, we

h s patriotic companions in the United States
cfore the close of th? coming summer.
'We take it for granted that the refWeos
will arrive at New York, and that our civic au
thorities and citizens will give them a glorious
con??]l0"th k8 18 ftU VCry WeU' but we should
consider that they come to our shores as stran
gers, outcasts, poor, and without means to ob
tain the necessaries of life. Now, the parade
and show of a reception would be but an empty
honor to men in their condition. It behooves
us to take steps to testify our respect for their
S?hi r ? 8 andT sufferSng8 ^ some more
substantial manner. Let us show our sympathy
in a moro serviceable manner than by shouts of
greeting and appiaU8c 0ur Government has
already made a grant of land to Gen. Ujhazi
and Ins companions, in Iowa, and their country
men will no doubt wish to settle with them.
To enable them to do this, we would surest
that our common council appoint a committee,
with his honor the Mayor as chairman, to re
ceive subscriptions to b? devoted to providing
suitably for the reftigee Hungarians and Poles,
on their arrival here, and to enable them to
settle with their friends in Iowa. This plan
will be more effective than any Hungarian com
mittee that can be formed, and will also be
more worthy of our city. By acting thus, we
win only be emulating the generous conduct of
the hultan, the conduct of the people of Liver
pool, and we wilLshow to the world our estima
tion of the heroic efforts of a brave people who
struggled nobly in the same sacred cause for
which our fathers bled and suffered.

than previously received.
A Nocturnal Promenade.?A bed of mortar
was left nicely sprinkled over with sand, in front
of a neighboring building last night, and this

Somebody in Bleecker street, who has a house

indifferent and hard to be satisfied. Accord

while the latter made the tour of the house, and
finally both departed, expressing their great

Lysus Natura?-We learn from the Cliarlee
ton Chronicle tluit out of a litter of pigs recently
bora on a farm hear the city, one was observed
of a nondescript species, differing materially
in form and mark* from the rest, of an unusually
large size, and witL almost all the colors of the
rainbow. It iu of the Berkshire breed, partly,
but most curiously deformed, having Hourly two
heads entire, with the exception of the none and
mouth, which are not exactly double, but en
larged to far more than the ordinary capacity
required for the offices of those members. One
ear is longer than the other; the two fore-f^et
are strangely imperfect, and a dromedary-dike
bump on the back is very perceptible.
Previous to the departure of this " Queen of
Song" from the city of St. Louis, she distributed
her usual charities among the different benev
olent societies in that place. From the Repub
lican, of the 27th ultimo, in which the corres
pondence is published, we learn that both Jenny
JLind and Barnum each contributed a thousand
dollars, which was distributed as follows by
Mr. Kennett, the Mayor, in accordance with
the wishes of the donors:
For the relief of distressed emigrants of every
nation, - $1,000
To the Orphans' Home, - - 260
To the Protestant Orphan Asylum, - 250
To the Catholic Male Orphan Asylum, 250
To the German Ladies' Benevolent Asso
ciation, .... . 250
The following is the reply of Mayor Kennett,
acknowledging the receipt of the two cheoks
for a thousand dollars cach:
"Permit me, through you, to return my
thanks to the generous donors, on behalf of the
several societies that are to be the recipients of
their bounty; and especially on behalf of the
distressed emigrants of all nations, who seek a
home amongst us, and who are sorely in need
of a friend on their first arrival, would I thank
Miss Lind and Mr. Barnum for their noble
Wo notice among the visiters in this
city, Dr. Frank Taylor, whose exertions to pro
cure the release of Kossuth will bo remembered
with pleasure by all Americans and by all Re
publicans. He went to Asia Minor to meet
Kossuth, and traveled hundreds of miles for
that purpose. He found Kossuth all that he is
represented to be?an accomplished gentleman,
a splendid scholar, a statesman, and a soldier;
with his heart beating warmly for freedom, and
especially for this country. Dr. Taylor was the
main influence that secured the passage of the
Kossuth resolution, in the last Congress, under
the authority of which the President will send
a vessel for the Hungarian hero. We are glad
to add that the Doctor is a young man, and a
native of Chester county, in tlys State.

Extent of Railways.?According to the cal
culations of Mr. G. W. Smith, long engaged in
railroad statistics, there are now no less than
ten thousand six hundred and eighteen miles of
railroads completed in the United States; and
he calculates that next year there will be more
than twelve thousand six hundred miles?more
than sufficient, if extended in one line, to reach
round half the circumference of the globe.
According to the Shipping List there were in
New York on Tuesday 15 steamships, 85 ships,
71 barques, 138 brigs, and 162 schooners?Total,

Cass or Shooting by a Woman.?At New
York, yesterday morning, (the Herald reports,)
at eight o'clock, Hugh Fletcher, coachman of
Mr. Alexander Lawrence, residing at the corner
of Twenty-first street and Lexington avenue,
was shot in the back of the head by a woman
who gave her name as Mrs. Elizabeth Clarke.
The occurrence took placc at the corner of Lex
ington avenue and Twenty-second street, and
the sidewalk is covered with a pool of blood
where Fletcher fell. It appears she was wait
ing for him for an hour previous, and told a
young man who was with him to stand back.
Fletcher, however, did not see any weapon with
her, and when he turned on the sidewalk, to go
toward Mr. Lawrence's house, she fired the
pistol, and he fell forward on his face, where
he lay insensible for some time. She walked
deliberately away, and threw the pistol over
the fence, where it was found. The shot took
effect just where the neck joins the head, and
where the muscles are pretty thick. Fletcher
is a fat Englishman, and probably owes his life
to the fact, if he should survive this sporting
affair. Several doctors of the neighborhood
were in attendance and examined the wound.
Where the centre of the charge entered there is
a round hole, and all around there are small
shot holes, for it was with shot the pistol was
loaded. Had there been a stronger charge of
powder in, or had the woman fired a little high,
Fletcher would have been a corpse. As it is
his life is in danger.
The doctors ordered a poultice to the wound,
but could not cxtract the shot at present, nor
have they as yet ascertained the full extent of
the injury. His forehead and face arc very
bndly cut where he fell upon the flags. The
woman was handed over to the justice on the
charge, but the wouhded man is at present un
able to appear against her in court. It is said
to be an affair of the^eart.
The Columbus (Ohio) State Journal utterly
denies the story wnich has been pretty exten
sively circulated, that Ohio has passed a law
nullifying the Fugitive Slave bill in that State.
The Journal, says that no such law has passed
the Legislature, or either branch of it.
Ixtkrksting Prisk.?There is a drum now
in the possession of the Massachusetts Volun
teers, which bore the following inscription upon
its body : " This drum was beat at the battle of
Bunker Hill by Thomas Scott, 1775." It was
taken from a British drummer by a soldier of
the Continentals at the memorable battle above
named: it afterwards became the property of
the State of Massachusetts.
Storm.?The New York Tribune of yesterday
says: "Last night the wires of all the three
Telegraph lines to Boston were down, and com

I son ia Canada.?Last night George Thompson
j lectured on slavery, and was enthusiastically
1 received by a large audience. He described the
press of the United States that support slavery
: as the most degraded literature in the world,
and said he could not understand the religion
of America, where the Bible is withheld from
three millions of slaves, and where thirty thou
sand ministers nearly all set the laws of the
United States above the laws of God.
The Steamers for Europe.?Hereafter the
Cunard steamers will leave New York and Bos

leave on each Wednesday. The Collins steamers
will leave New York every alternate Saturday,
and the Southampton and Bremen, and South
ampton and Havre steamers will sail on the Sa
turdays on which the Collins steamers do not
leave. By this arrangement wo shall have a
semi-weekly line of steamships between this
country and Europe.
