^ washinoTUN ? MONDAY AFTERNOON, 0CT. 6. vrffi- We receive a great mauy communica tions from persons whose names are withheld, or unknown to us, and of course we can pay uo attention to them. Tke "OfcrlitUu The fifth number of this able, dignified, ami highly interesting weekly paper was ?'e ou Saturday last. Though a literary and J laneous paper, the feature that pum-'P characterizes it is its devotion to the cause African Colonization, than which no more benevolent, philanthropic, and patriotic scheme Las ever been presented to the American people. And yet this cause has few ardent and enthu siastic supporters, who are willing and eager to bestow of their wealth in furtherance of its objects. Its friends arc intelligent and reflect ing men, who look carefully to the great result of their laborj rather than with a levcrish anxiety to the present means of its advance ment, and the controversies and other concom itants attending its progress. But there is no great class, no party, no interested persons, no set of public journals, to whom the publishers may look for aid. We therefore make an un solicited uud voluntary appeal in their behalf to OL-K BBBTUBES 0>" TUB l'RESS throughout tllO United States, and ask them to examine the Statesman for themeel.es, and to speak ol it and its objects to their readers as they severally deserve. Its editors, the Rev. R. R. Gublky and Daniel 11. Goodloe, nre gentlemen ol the highest character, both of them possessing in an eminent degree the confidence, respect, and good will of the people 01' this community, and of the country, and both writers of acknowl edged ability. They also entertain sound na tional sentiments, such as will meet a response, we r.re rejoiccd to know, in every homestead throughout the land, save wliero the excitement of a transitory controversy lias cast a shadow over the clearer views by which our country men are wont to be guided. Read the following, which we quote from the editorial columns of this paper. It is brief, but illustrative of the temper of the Slatexinan eucli an appoal, in fact, as should be made as often as once a week to every fatni'y within the limits of our wide-spread Republic. The Union.?Few, if any, over-estimate the importance to the whole race of man of the Union of the States of this Republic. This im portance seems too obvious to require illustra tion and can hardly be made clearer by argu ment The dangers to which the Union may be exposed lie not, in our judgment, in any opposition of interests between uny of its sec tions, nor in the variety and contrariety of opinions which may arise among our widespread i population, but solely iu those prejudices and i passions which, unduly regulated and excited, sometimes overthrow all the bulwarks of wis- ! doin and, like a conflagration, involve our very homes aud dearest interests in ruin. The great object of the Union, as declared in our Constitu tion, was to insure domestic tranquillity and promote the general welfare; aud since it is maintained by no armed force, but rendered strong only by the consciences and hearts of the people, so nothing can endanger its perpetuity but the decay of popular affection for its princi ples aud the high results which they are embo died to secure. It is uot to Congress nor to State Legislatures, not to proclamations nor public de bates not to unity of opinion, even, on all great questions of private or public duty, that we must look for the stability of the Union, but to the calm deep, virtuous motives of individuals, | ready, even at great bacrifices, to advance great j public ends, disposed to take counsel from the nuiet majesty of the reason, and awe into si lence aU the tumult aud fury of the passions. It is to the minds of individuals who believe in Providence, who are under law to God, who re gard our institutions and our Union as ordained not less by Divine than human wisdom for the good order and peace, and enduring liberty and , welfare of this nation, and, through us, to shed light upon all the nations of the world, that we | look for that candor and forbearance, that pro- ! found reflection and all-comprehending charity, j that love of justice and of all mankind, which. | once prevalent among our citizens, will leave no place within the wide circuit of the republic for "hatred or for discord, and make our Union im perishable. Our confidence is mainly in Him who brought our fathers to these shores, who has so protected them in war, increased and prospered them in peace, so enriched and ex alted them, and, above all, instructed so many ol us to regard the eternal truths and laws of Christianity as His last, clearest revelation? I our inextinguishable light, and never-wasting treasure. Hon. Stephen A. Donglaa. There is, probably, no public man in the United States more popular in this city than the able, agreeable, and gentlemanly Senator from Illinois. He iB emphatically a man of the people?unostentatious, practical, and intelli gent, his intercourse with our citizens is un restrained and familiar, yet ever dignified, and mutually respectful. We believe, indeed, that the first suggestions of his nomination lor the Presidency originated here, where his public , and private career arc as familiar as household ? words to us all. His strength and popularity, also, are well-measured by the politicians of this city; in evidence of which, we submit the following from the editorial columns of the Rrpublit, of this morning: "Senator Douglas is at the A<?tor House, in the city of New York. He appears to be mov ing in earnest, and we should advise his rival Democratic aspirants for the Presidency to be looking about them. Now we henr of him at his birth-place in Vermont, telling the sover eigns of the fashion in which he will carry on Cabinet making. Next we see him at Saratoga, the observed of all observers, hob-a-nobbing with all creation, and winning golden opinions from all sorts of people. Anon, he is at 1 am manv Hall, pouring oil on the agitated waters of Democracy. Then he turns up at the agri cultural fair of the Empire State, and astonishes the farmers by his talk about crops and cat tle; and a day or two afterwards he is at another fair in Ohio; and now dividing the ca resses of Barnburners and Old Hunkers at the Astor House. We should not be surprised if the celerity of his movements, and the success of his operations, should embarrass Mr. Bu chanan and Mr. Cass very seriously. It looks ?cry much as if he were spreading his nets wide; and if he does not catch as many larks when the skies fall as most any one of his Democratic friends, it will not be his fault." We do not know how far Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Cass may become embarrassed by the cele rity of the movements of Mr. Douglas, but we think a leap into the White House with a little assistance from bis republican fellow-citizens may very likely Boon prove quite embarrassing to its present occupant and some of Lis friends, sliould any such be found in tht day of bis ad versity. Mr*. Toi)ln??n. Sixty-seven Hungarians in the city of New York have published a card in the Tribuv \ with their names subscribed, in which they denounce oneDe Alma, "formerly a lieutenant in the Bava rian army," as a willing instrument of European tyrants, who " 1-ong obtruded himself on the Hungarian refugees," and "never took part in the struggle for Hungarian freedom." They say: " De Ahn-i came to New York, where he 1ms certain compai.ions entirely worthy of him, who joined with him to obtain, by bribery of t.'ie .Hungarians, false charges against Mrs. Ap pollonia Tochman, (born Jagiello,) a lady who, during the Hungarian struggle for freedom, de served well of the cau.se. llis proposals, as might be supposed, were rejected with indigna tion, until at last ho found a person in a Ger man named Koelbel, who, in point of charac ter, was on a level with himself. De Ahna had the means of inducing Koelbel to present an entirely unfounded charge against the charac ter oi* the lady above mentioned. The value of a testimony obtained in this way can easily be estimated, when it is known that the author ^ Koelbel) IS NOW IMPRISONED ON BLACK WELL'S ISLAND FOR AN INFAMOUS CRIME!!!" They ^peak of Mrs. Tochman ns having "ob tained the most general esteem in Hungary as the superintendent of the Coinorn hospital, for her self-devotion, her skili, and her noble dis interestedness." They pronounce the state ments ?jf Dc Ahna " vile calumnies," and declare that they are persuaded, from their own knoul edye, that " Mrs. Appollooia Tochman has laid tha Hungarian nation under the obligations above mentioned, as well as many others, and that IIER CHARACTER IS, IN ALL RE SPECTS, A-liOVL IMPEACHMENT." They conclude with the following appeal to "the calumniated lady:" " May you continue, xioblc Pole, as a martyr of freedom, to discharge the lofty mission for the relief of your fellow-sufferers in exile. In Hungary, you have strengthened the defenders of freedom in their zeal and devotion; you have taken care of the wounded among them; and now, far from your beloved fatherland, it is your noble lot to alleviat e their sufferings/' The signatures to thie card are as follow: 1 Edward Scheifele, Bela Lovasz, Comoro Ludvig Margai, Chas.

Mitchell Loriner, The Amateur Dramatic Association.?We learn that an association bearing the above title has been formed in this city. The object is to improve the young men in dramatic oratory?a laudable one. We like all associations of the kind; lor they not only improve the members in public speaking, teaching them the different and pleasing positions, emphasis, and proper gestures of the stage?impressing upon their minds highly useful precepts anu maxims which otherwise would not be done upon a casual reading, or representation of a play ; bnt they also awaken the latant ambition in them, which, once aroused, seldom stops till it reaches the highest pinnacle of fame. By reference to another column it will be seen that the society holds a meeting this (Monday) evening, to which all persons wishing to join an association of the kind are invited to attend. We Lope the young men of our city will join while they have now an opportunity, as we learn that the number tc be admitted is limited by their con stitution. The above has been handed to us for publi cation, and we comply with the wishes of its writer?under protest, however, that we regard the fascinations of the Btnge as among the most unfortunate with which a youth can be infatu ated, and all the improvement derivable from a Thespian society as dearly purchased in time and money, and sadly detrimental to useful and honorable progress in life. They who arc now commencing such nn enterprise are, no doubt, guided by the best intentions; but the best in tentions of youth hardly afford as sure a path way as the experience of maturer years. Railroad Accidents.?The following analy sis of the accidents occurring on railroads from causes which may be avoided by proper care on the part of the passengers, is taken from a work recently published in London, entitled j " Lardner'a Railway Economy." Its publica tion ought to have a good effect in this country. I Ana)y,it qf one hundred Accidml* produced by imprudence of JUuenyeri. I Sitting or ctnndlng In Improper InJured. Total.

Amkricus VKsruccr.?This lady, it is said, ! lives in Paris, "in half-voluntary exile." A writer in the Providence Journal describes her as "a young lady, with lovely features, and a manly, patriotic character," &c. It takes somo time for her to grow old. The paper that gives no credit is on our table this morning; and one of oar editorials is t highly honored. That gratifies us. Latent firoiul California* *ar See Postscript. The (steamship Prometheus arrived at New York on Saturday last, from San Juan, whence she left on the 2Gth ultimo. She brings intelli gence from California to New York in twenty eight (lays?the shortest time on record. The Nicuragua route being now proved to be the shortest, as well as the safest and most heulthy, will unquestionably be the route f&r the great travelling public, and also for the United States mail, in a very short time. The Prometheus brings four hundred pas sengers and one million of dollars in gold on freight. The advices from San Francisco are to the Gth ultimo. The Stato and Congressional elec tions had taken placo, but returns enough to make the cxact result known had not been re ceived. In San Francisco the Whigs carried every ward of the city but one. The Whig majority in San Francisco was about one thou sand votes. The Democratic majority in Sac ramento city and county was four hundred. We select from tho account of the election which we find in tho New York Herald, of yes terday, the following summary: "The election seems to have absorbed every thing else. The returns, as far as received, though in the main imperfect, from the coun j ties of San Francisco, Sacramento, Yolo, Ne vada, El Dorado, Solano, Marin, Tuolumne, San Joaquin, Calaveras, and Santa Clara, give I l'earse JJ. Heading (Whig) a majority over John Bigler (Dem.) of about 1,000, and tho balance of the State ticket from GOO to 800. The counties of Mendocino, Napa, Klamath, Trinity, Shasta, Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz will give Heading at least 5,000 majority. This puts his election beyond the possibility of a doubt; and the same vote will elect, the most of the State ticket." In the same summary, there is a conjecturc that the Democrats have carried the Legisla ture ; but if the foregoing summary be.correct, we should presume that the Whigs had carried the Legislature, and one, at least, of the two Representatives to Congress. This, in our opinion, would be a legitimate inference. The actual result, however, will be known iu some two or three weeks?possibly by the next arri val from Chagres. The mining news is favorable. A destructive i tire occurred at Marysville on August 30th, | consuming eighty buildings in the business part of the city. The loss is stated at $500,000. The Indians were very troublesome. Be tween Sacramento and Salt Lake several emi grants had been killed, and the mail riders had also been attacked. Two men, McKenzie and Whittaker, had been executed at San Francisco, and two executions had taken place rt Sacramento. In other re spects, matters had been comparatively quiet. Itobinson, who was reprieved by the Governor, had been hung by the people. The markets geneially were quiet. A brisk trade was anticipated in a few days, it being the season for minors to lay in their winter stores. Flour was active at $10 50 @ $12 00; corn $3 @ $3 50; corn meal $7 50; mess pork $15; elcar do. $17; hams $20; lard $14; butter 25 40 cents; cheese 10 @ 15 cents. Boots and shoes were abundant, and clothing generally dull. The steamer Tennessee left San Francisco on the 1st for Panama with $1,700,000 in gold, and the Constitution with $100,000. The for | mer had two hundred and fifty, and the latter | one hundred and twenty passengers. The above advices were brought to San Juan by the steamer Pacific, which arrived at that place on tho 20th ultimo, with two hundred and twenty-five passengers and $100,000 in gold. Tho North American left San Juan for San Francisco on the 20th, with two hundred and lifty passengers. Tho General Hunter left for the same place on the21st. It is reported that the propeller Lafayette was entirely destroyed j by fire in the harbor of Chagres on the 11th. ! Iler cargo was partially saved. The DeAuna Case.?The parlies in tins case ' appeared before Justices Morsell and Goddard at noon to-day, to hear the final decision re specting the amount of security to be given for the appearance of De Ahna before the Criminal Court, to answer to the second charge of slander made by Major Tochman, on behalf of himself and lady. The bond was fixed at one thousand dollars, five hundred having been given on the former charge. Dr. Magruder entered on the bond as 6urety. W^ter D. Davidge, esq., for the prosecution, moved that he might bo permitted to file with the affidavit of Major Tochmnn certain other affidavits. This motion was opposed by E. C. Morgan and T. Barton Key, esqs., counsel for the prisoner, who alleged that they would only agree to opening the case for this purpose on condition that a like privilege bo extended to all parties, of introducing new matter at dis cretion. Tho sitting magistrates overruled the motion of Mr. Davidge. A Villain.?We yesterday saw one of the most unprincipled scamps that ever disgraced this city walking through the streets with two apparently respectable young ladies.?Boston j Bee. Thus the Bee commences its denunciation of a bad man; but we quote the above lines in honor of tho women of America. It is a just matter of surprise that the "apparently re spectable young ladies" should be found in the company of a dishonest and unprincipled man. Women are our true reformers; they have it in their power to fix the standards of honor and morality, below which men dare not venture. Mubdock, the tragedian, is playing in Balti more. We think an evening's Shakspeare reading in Washington would prove attractive. He is an eloquent reader and good imitator. Refreshing?To witness the advertising pa tronage of the Baltimore Sun. It is almost equal to its immense subscription. But we see it without envy, for it is " the reward of merit." It is truly remarked by the Philadelphia In qwirtr that the administration of President Fill more is eminently popular with the masses everywhere throughout the Union. The indi catipns upon this point are of tho most conclu sive character.?Baltimore American. In the midst of the uncertainties of this world, these conclusive indications must be very gratifying to our most worthy President. A condition of doubt on so important a matter is always annoying, and often leads to vacilla tion of purposo and general irresolution. Mr. Fillmore, now that he knows he is right, has nothing to do but "go ahead." He hath close friends and wise comforters. Happy Mr. Fillmore! Hall & Bkothik present a fine chance to mankind iu general, but especially the fairer portiou ot them, ltefer to their advertisement, and make your selection from the ample list given of dry-goods, for ladies and gentlemen, and housekeeping purposes. Bum urn being asked one day the secret of his success,(says a correspondent of the New ) ork Lxprtsa,) simply laughed and said: "Prin ter's ink." borne gentlemen can be trusted with any secret, for nothing they can say will be believed. Steamboat* and Hating. VTKS8B8. EDITORS: A statement appeared in t)i? -KatiotuU InUUiyencer of tliu 3d iiiat., signed Job Corson, (which said Corson knew at the time to be false,) that the Washington beat Capt. Page's brag boat, the Wil liam golden, one wile in twenty-six minutes running, on the preceding day, and can beat her at any time, Per haps X do not understand his mode of trying the speed of | l>oalij, as 1 am not an old boat-builder, or an experienced | captain. lie may liavo some new way of heating that 1 Jo not know of. If he means that he beat tho Selden on j last Thursday, while making an excursion trip to A quia Creek, ho is ccrtaiuly mistaken, as ho knew that the ad vertisement stated that there would not be auy steamboat racing. IJ0 (Corson) did know that tho Selden was not trying for speed, (if ho counted her revolutions, which he says he did;) she was ouly making eighteen to twenty revolutions while he was passing, and wo had only twenty eight to thirty inches steam, which 1 can prove. lie knew that the Selden could make twenty-oight to thirty revolu tions with ease; ho knew that there would be no racing on that occasion on the part of the Selden; ho took tho op portunity to run his brag New York boat by the Seidell, as it would be the only opportunity, and then cry out " beat!" This will not do, Air. Corson; you might as well claim a boat of tho Seidell when she is tied to tho wharf, and you then run by her. The distance you run in your twenty-six minutes, from the rope walk to the I'ort, can be run by the old Pheenix iu twenty-six min I utes. The Selden can and has run it in less than fourteen I minutes the Champion in sixteen minutes. You must have been mistaken iu looking at your watch; you must have got along a littlo faster, Mr. Corson, for tho Selden was not over fifteen minutes in running from where you started to where you turned your boat round, by the re quest of your engineer, as he states that he feared she would break down or burst her boiler with eighty pounds stsain on her, and God only knows how much more than eighty pounds there was, as he had turned tho cock that connects the steam with tho steam-gauge, and thus no one knew how muoh steam there was on her. 1 think peo ple ought to be careful how they risk their lives with such reckless steamiDg. 1 certainly shall not carry more than forty-five pounds of steam, if the Selden is beat. TJie engineer, Mr. Ubon, said her engine was jumping off her kelsons, which was the reason of their turning about. I supposed that wo should have had thom at the creek, ac cording to their advertisement in the Baltimore Sun the >day before, which was circulated on the morning of the 1 excursion, just in time to prevent the people knowingany l etter than that there would be a race that day. It was too late for mo to contradict what you had published, and I tlit consequence was wo had a very small company, j Notwithstanding the advertisement for tho excursion j stated there would be no race, this part of the|transaetion j beats all tho rascality I have seen practised for many a I day, as it not only deprived many a person from enjoying | .i pleasant excursion, but put tho company to consider ? "W'' expense without accomplishing their object. It also j put me to considerable expense and trouble, without bon ! efiting either Corson or the company, j Now, Mr. Job, wo will start fair, if you will have a little patience, (which you ought to have.) I will, as soon a* my boat is finishtd and put in good running order, give you another chance for repairs, (or I will have one myself,) and beat you more than I did when tho New York maiden was ushered into the waters of tho Poto mac from the upjier ten thousand, which it seems you cannot forget or swallow. It is a bitter pill, but you must take it; and I must go further to prove what I have said : If you or your ownor liavo a few thousand dollars to spare, it will be covered on tho issue. ; 0?It GHO.
