The CoU(ir?s8 of the nation is uguin to assemble
at the capital, and our city is ugain to assume
tliW guy, the buoyant, the busy and the life-like
appearauce thus periodically imparted to it.
Already our hotels und promenades ure occu
pied by the forms of distinguished meu from
the various sections of the country.
This is all well for Washington. We rejoice
at it; aud hope is glad withiu uh. But is it j
not well far our nation, aud does it not call tor j
emotions of Universal pleasure and gratitude .
How often have the clouds of national wo
gathered around us, and how often have the
threat* of national annihilation and ignominy
been sounded in our ears? Hut they have
passed away, like the storm-cloud ot sunnnei,
and left a clear blue sky aud a gorgeous sun
above us. May their joyous beauty be ever
more seeu, undimmed by clouds of dark lore
boding, undisturbed by the commotions of dis
cord aud treason!
We do not agroo with a writer whom we to
day quote in regard to the character of the
proceedings of the approaching seBsion. We
have passed a fearful national crisis, aud theic.
is gratitude in the breast of every one who
looks back upon the dangers we have passed.
It is in such an hour of deliverance that men
are wont to cling closer together, and to rejoice
in the means of their escape. Those means
comprise the bond of fraternal union that binds
UB together?a bond that is now held doubly dear

The Presidential question will prove of excit

prospects fairer of entering upon its discussion

The legislation of Congress will be rapidly
consummated, and for the welfare of the coun
try. Questions of radical difference will not
soon be introduced. The high-tariff" party are
not going to urge their measures upou Con
gress; and the increase of duties upon a few
special subjects will be efl'eoted almost without
the appearance of an opposition. A postal law
will be enacted with the certaiu lights of expe
rience; a willing ear will be turned to the great
and glorious schcme of African colonization,
and beneficent results will be realized; and
the grand projcct of promoting the welfare of
the railroads in the United States, as proposed
by the Messrs. Green and Clarke, will find favor
in the eyes of wise legislators. This last sub- j
ject it may not be amiss for us here to explain.
It is proposed by these gentlemen to urge |
upon Congress a modification of the laws rela
tive to contracts for carrying the mail, so as to ,
authorize the Post Office Department to con
tract for the perpetual use of railroads, and, |
instead of paying, ns now, quarterly on con- |
tracts for four years, to advance, in five per ;
cent, bonds of the United States, chargeable upon
the revenues of the Tost Office Department, an
amount the interest upon which at six per cent, j
would equal the payments now made. The 1
effects of this scheme are thus explained by I
its authors:
"The Government now pays $300 a mile for
carrying the mail on first-class railroads. This j
ie six per cent, on *5,000. The undersigned .
would urge that, instead of paying $300 a mile
per annum, the department Bhould deliver, on
a contract in perpetuity, five $1,000 bonds, <
bearing an interest of five per centum. At this <
rate, the chargcs upon the departmeut would j
be reduced from $300 to $250 a mile per an- (
num, and the $50 per mile saved would create
a Kinking fund, which will in a few years pay
off the bonds, and give the use of such roads i |
forever thereafter free of all charge?thereby
effecting a vast saving in the present annual
expenditures of the l'ost Office Department, j
and a consequent reduction in the rate of post- j
?ge." <
The Case of Mr. Thrtilur.
The New York Courier and Enquirer has an
article fully justifying the conviction of Mr.
Thrasher under the Spanish laws?an article
that if credited will totally prevent the inter
ference of our Government in his favor. The
Courier states that he was cognizant of the '
plan of invasion, and had boasted of the ad- j
vantages he would derive from its success. ,
This is in character with that journal; but what
are we to think of the merchants of New York
by whom it is upheld? In every controversy
it is the enemy of America and American re
In a letter to the Journal of Commerce, dated at
Havana, on the 12th, it is asserted that his trial
was a mere mockery, no opportunity being given
him for defence, and no adviser allowed him as
is required by Spanish law for Spanish subjects.
This latter waH the more tyrannical, because,
In order to prevent the interposition of our
consul, it was expressly asserted that the priso
ner had become a Spanish citizen. The truth,
however, appears to bo that, although ho took
out letters of domicil, in order to enable him to
enter into business, he made no effort to natu
ralize himself; and of this the Havanese au
thorities were fully aware, siuce, a few mouths
ago, when he sought a license for his press, it
was denied him by a co-ordinate branch of the
government, on the plea " that he was an
American sitizen." It was sought to entrop
him, by sending a letter to New Orleans, there
to be mailed to him at Havana; but Mr,
Thrasher frustrated this nice little bit of vil
lany by refusing to rcceive the epistle. Thus
foiled in " making up" testimony against him.
the Spanish officials condemned him without
testimony. Even the laggard Mr. Owen was
rouwed to expostulation, by the grossness of the
proceedings; but he was not heard, nay he
was not even allowed a seat at the trial.
Tiik Difference.?As an evidence of our
superior manner of transacting business in this
city, we may state that the report of the pro
ceedings of our Common Councils is always
about three times as long as that of either Bal
timore or Philadelphia; and our city affairs are
therefore of course three times as well managed.

W. P. Kljiot, es^,, Solicitor of Fatents, W*sh- |
ingum oity, D <' , iroiu u gcutlemai
| ciouaii, dute<l Nov T2, 1851:
"I had the pleasure of seeing Mi* Salniuoun

iu my opinloy. f cauuot see why it will not go
I into general use as soon as it can be brought to
! bear upon machinery. My respects to Mr. |
SmIoihou, ami tell him that 1 had the honor to
see hi* invention. 8. Huuiikb."
The invention above referred to is Mr. J. C.
F. Salomon's Thermo Mechanic Motor, or en
gine operated by the power of liquified carbonic j
acid gas slightly heated, used instead of steam,
by which a great saving in expense is effected,
and the danger arising from the use of highly
heated steam removed.
Oeutml Pillow Cor the Vice Presidency.
! We have of late heard the name of this gen
tleman repeatedly .spoken iu connexion with this
office; and in the I'ennsjflvanian of yesterday he is
nominated by a correspondent, who briefly re
i views liia military servioes in Mexico, and says
that " his position as a Democrat, and his views
' on the various questions of national policy
' now before the country, are well known, und
1 ' it muy be believed that ho would bo an ac
' ceptod candidate for the position iu connexion
' with which his name lias been mentioned."
The editor of the Penneylvanian intimates that
as Mr. Buchanan will be brought before a Na
tional Convention with great unanimity, it does
j not become the people of that State to interfere
with the nomination of the second officer; but
that " it is duo to say that in the character of |
i ' General Billow, of Tennessee, there are many
'of those elements that command conlidence
' and success. Long and intimately identified
j ' with Southern politics?the bosom friend of |
! ' the lamented I'olk?an able lawyer?a soldier
' whose valor has been displayed on more than
! ' battle-field?and a citizen of Btainless j
i 4 character?he would, if nominated, make a
j ' most acceptable candidate to the Democracy
j ' of the United States." So, then, here is a
difficulty got snugly over.
An Atheist's Trutlifulnesa.
j " But, says the Washington Telegraph, 'We
don t believe him,' when he says he disbelieves
the existence of a Deity. Well, then, you can
j have no objection to his oath on that ground
j certainly. As the test with you is not truth,
I veracity or morality, but simply the belief in a
God ; and as you insist that he docs believe, he
must be competent eveu on your own ground."
yi'roi'tiicHce (-N. -//.J Mirror.
A man may deceive us by falsehood in say
ing that he does believe in God when lie does
not. That is his fault. But if he says he does
not, he cither does not or lies and blasphemes,
and it is safe to discredit him in either case.
I he arguments for refusing the testimony
of men who deny the existence of a God are
among the most silly and weak in Christen
We do not in legal trials credit the simple
assertion of a Christian. He must solemnly
call God to witness his sincerity. An atheist
believes in no God, and can make no such ap
peal. Are his natural moral sentiments so
much more elevated than those of a Christian
that his simple declaration should be received ?
We would place them on a just equality, and
believe neither in such cases unless under the |
solemnity of an oath or affirmation before God, i
which the atheist cannot make.
Schools.?They who would choose among
the schools of our city will do well to observe
the advertisements under the head Educational j
in our paper. A siogle pupil gained always de- '
frays the expenses of advertising, and an adver
tisement sorely never fails to bring at least that
ane pupil. He, therefore, who cannot see his
interest in advertising, demonstrates his uneuit
nblcness as a teacher.
Thk Creature Comfort.?One of the most
bloody domestic tragedies that has lately been
recorded occurred on Wednesday night, near
Albany. A husband and wife, named Moore,
had been to a neighbor's, in the early part of
the evening, where they both drank so much
liquor that thoy did not know what they were
about. On returning home, it is supposed? ' '
for the evidence is merely circumstantial? |
Moore took a double-barrel gun and killed his
wife with one charge, and himself with the
other. The most melancholy part of the hor- I
rible affair is, that, wlieu the discovery was
made, two little children, under five years of
age, were found weeping over the remains of
their parents. The effects of strong drink had
j made them orphans.
tatf" We learn that 11. J. Turner, the ex- |
^ quisite American vocalist, arrived in our city
this morning. He has been eminently success
ful in his Northern tour, experiencing nothing
' but a succession of triumphs. At Tripler Hall,
' in New York, he proved a wonderful favorite.
He is to appear at Odd-Fellows' Hall, on Mon
day night next, and will unquestionably be
greeted by a splendid array of the beauty and
fashion of the city. Mr. Turner is, in our
opinion, one of the sweetest singers we have
ever heard. The plaintive strain of the Isle
, of Beauty has not yet died upon our eor,
though many months have passed since we
heard it from his lips. Odd-Fellows' Hall, as
is well known, has been splendidly fitted up of
AgT Dress to suit the season. Comfort and
: economy call for this ; and William Wall, on
i the north side of the Avenue, between 9th and
10th streets, will he sure to show you the right
j articles. He hns a great assortment of the
I ready-madj for men and boys.

the attraction. Go and sec it.
BUtf Two horses ran off with a hack this
morning on 7th street, making good their way
from the City Post Office to the Intelligencer |
comer, where they were brought up by a coun
try wagon, which they came nigh bringing
down. The damage inflicted was a severe fright,
and some little bruises to the wagoner, some
little iBjury to the hack, and the breaking off a
cow's horn in their speedy flight.

Mr. Klojnan, who keeps an establish

and embellishments were all highly appropriate.

this lady appears to be none the less, now that J
she is without hoaxing managers and an ex
pensive retinue of singers and others. The
Ilarrisburg Keystone says of her:
"Mile. Jenny Lind gave a concert in ilarris
burg last evening at the Methodist Church,
which is capable of holding a larger audience
than any building in town. It was filled in
every part, though the notice of her entertain
ment was short; and, notwithstanding the high
expectation raised by her world-wide fame,
none present were disappointed. The prices ol
tickets were two, three, and four dollars, ac
cording to the situation of seats The gross
receipts, wc understand, amounted to $3,000."

meat, but, once "done to a turn," it is of sin
gular tenderness and sweetness. A highly civ
ilized New Zeohinder, who had become partner
in an English commercial house, was addicted,
iu his younger days, to human flesh, and evin
now the recollection of his cannibal feats is not
disagreeable to him. The Hesh of young le
males is preferred to any other. The book has
this curious remark: "The cannibal propen
sity is deeper in the highest conditioned races
of men than most people imagine. Why n-as
pork, for instance, 'prohibited to the Jars '/ Why,
but that it so closely resembles human flesh, that
people in a stale of semi-barbarism might yet into

truly wonderful Medicine, from it* peculiar happy etf.ct,
in allaying the most violent Nervous utlncUous, mid com
pletely eradicating them from the system, may justly be
termed the grandest discovery iu the science of Medicine.
It subdues and averts all those NERVOUS DISEASES,
over which the rnoj.it profound medical skill has hitherto

weak constitution, alreajj worn down by disease uud de
