One despatch is dated Louisville, whereas it should come from St. Louis to be authentic. Interesting fiom the National Capital. PROPOSITION FOR A FUSION OF THI HARDS AND SOFTS- PROTEST OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS AGAINST THE RECOGNITION OF NICARAGUA?THE SCHEMES BEFORE C0NGRI8S?PUBLIC PLUNDER AND POLITICS?PATENT RIGHTS AND NHKJBKIHM - CALIFORNIA MAIL CONTRACTS, ETC. Washington, May 24,1856. A proposition has been submitted by the New York soft delegation to the hards, by which, if accepted, the difference will be hea'.eJ, and the New York democracy united cn the Cincinnati nominee. The softs are to be recognized as the regulars, when one half will resirn and admit as many hards to their seats. This, it it under stood here, will be the arrangement. Several of tbtrade -clare for General Cass. Several of the foreign Ministers have Blel protests Against the notion of our government in recognizing Nica ragua. It is the common remark that thii Congress .g th > weakest body ever congregated here. This is true; but if jou would add that it Is probably the most ocrrjipt Congress ever assembled in Washington, you would eome nearer the mark. The nigger question is paramount, but is Intended to cover all sorts of sebemes and all sorts of rascalUy. There are tvo great sources of oorruption 1 desire to call your attention to:?. First-The wholesale squandering of the publlo lends tot railroad speculators. Second?The extension of all the patent rights about ?expiring. These ere to be accomplished under the exetUment or the nigger question, whioh is to be kept up not only to eld the Preeidential elecltoa, but to favor the speculators In patents and vast railroad projects. The railroad sehemes have thus far been pretty sue jess Ail, aided ia great measure by the present administration. ?l Th* public land already given awwy by this Owpau amonntsto htm or eight miJliona of mtn, Mod p'au aro on foot to (well this to too, to fifteen or twwety million* of aciM'ln ail. It is parcelled out in this way:? For railroad* in Iowa 41.320,000 acre*. For railroad* in Wtseoeein 2,480,000 " For railroad* in Alabama 1.000,000 " For railroad* elsewhere 8.000,000 " Total 12,800,000 Then look at the attempted patent exteoeioes. Senator James ha* Introduced a bill which 1* intended to extend all exiuirg patent* six year*! I sent you a oopy of th bill, it is a curiosity. It U the object of this bill to fhi ten upon the country an onerou* tax for a period of six year* for the benefit of a few speculator*, and not. for th? honest patentee*; for the moat of them hare long eince ceased to have any pecuniary interest in their inventions. Millions of dollars are at stake on this single bill, whloh appear* so fair and plausible on its face. Among others, Gocdjaar's India rubber patent and Colt's pistol patent will be extended. Goodyear'* In dia rubber patent was granted In X844, and ha* never expired, and never been extended. Colt had one patent, which expired in 1861, and on which an extension wee refused by the Commissioner. This ia not the one for whloh he sought a special act of Congress, but another, which had not expired, and under which he new belie a menepeiy, and th* on* whloh caused th* in* veetigating committee in 1864. The Wood worth patent bes been once, or more than once, extended, and baa ex pired, but the lobby for that Is still strong ia the field and urging a special act for their benefit. The only patents whloh create any monopoly at the present time are those in existence, and they are to be extended by 1his bill. All can see, If they anderstand tlese facts, that the bill ia a lobby measure entirely to get tbe extensions of Goodyear'* and Colt's patents. The lobby for Day against Goodyear is as strong as the lobby for the other tide. It la, perhaps, a free fight. In the Colt ease yon will recollect that the report of the old Commissioner showed that he had made more than one million of dollars when he applied far the ex tension of his first patent. All persons Interested in these patents have grown rieh. If there is anything new and good In this proposed law let us have It, hut don't force upon us an extension of all these monopolies. Where poor Inventors have not re ceived a proper remuneration, they oan have an exten sion, under the old law, of seven years. That ought to satiety any reasonable man. hummed up, the amount at Issue in these Bohemes are as lollows in round numbers:? Value of railroad land, present and future... 860,000,000 Value of patent rights 10,000,000 Total 860,000,000 Is it strange, in vie * of this vast sum, that the lobby 1s large and Impudent?that the hotel keepera grow rich in tarnishing eplendid champagne dinnera in private par lore?that corruption runs riot ? Does not this large amount in part explain why certain New York editors and poli.idans are located here for the session, and are very busy in threats and flattery? And what do you think of the morality of the modera politicians who make nigger worship the eorrapt means to secure votes for railroad ape aula tors and patent right operators, as well ae for Preeldential candidate*? Messrs. Blacker and Wright, on behalf oi Messrs. Todd k Woodward of NewYorx, filed a protest to-day in the Navy Department against several of the government contracts with Arnold, Hains, Asplnwall, or other*, for conveying the mails between Panama and San Fransisao, and praying that th* contract be awarded them. The Sumner Affair. ( THE INVESTIGATING COMMITTER AT WORK?&UM NER'S ATTACK ON MB. DOUGLAS?COL. BROOKS HELD TO BAIL. Washington, May 23, ISM. The committee of each house took this morning the preliminary steps for the investigation of the circum stances attend eg the assault on Mr. Sumner, whose con dition to day is not considered so favorable as it was yes terday. Hie physicians forbid him leaving his room. It havli g been suggested to the reporter that a mistake occurred in the sketch of the report of the Senate's pro ceedings en Tuesday last, In justioc to those more lui mediately concerned he promptly publishes the toll ow ing, taken from the official report:? Mr. St'HNKB, in conolndlng his reply to Mr. Douglas, said? The Benator has gone on to inrnse into his speech the venom which has been sweltering for months, aye, for years; and he has alleged fasts that are entirely without foundation, In order to heap upon me soma per sonal obloquy. I will not go Into the details whtoh have flow* d out so naturally from his tongue. I only brand them to bis taee ae false. I say also to that Benator, and I wish him to bear it in mind, that no person with the uplight form of man ean be allowed? (Hesita tion.) Mr. Douglas?Say it. Mr. Sumner?I will say it?No person with the up right (turn of a man ean be allowed, without violation of all decency, to switch out from his tosgue the perpetual stench of offensive personality. Sir, taat Is not a pro per weapon of debate; at least, on this floor. The noisome, squat and namaless animal, to whieh I now re fer, is not a proper model lor an Amerioan Senator. Will ?he Senator frost Illinois take notice f My.Douglas?I will, and therefore will not imitate you, sir. Mr. Sumner?Mr. President, again the Senator has seltehed his tongue, and sgain he (ills the Senate with its offensive odor. in reply to Mr. Mason, Mr. Sumnrr said:? The Senator has not forgotten that on a former occa sion I did something to exhibit on tbis floor the planta tion manners whieb be displayed. I will not do any more now. ' Mr. Mason?Manners ef wbioh that Senator Is uncon scious. Mr. Brooks thts afternoon appeared, aocompanled by Mr. Keith, betore Justice Holllngahcad. The examina tion was about to commence, when Mr. Brooks said there was no necessity for it, as be acknowledged that ha com" mlttcd the assault and battery upon Mr. Sumner. The Justice required security in the sum of owe thousand dollars for bis appearance in court. James Magnire and Truxton Beale, Esqrs., became his sureties. A large number of the Maetachusetts delegates arrived here this evenicg. Six of them were speaking of Mr. Sumner's difficulties, when fonr declared their hearty ap proval of the whipping, and the other two regret it only on aooonnt of its probable effect among the people of Massachusetts. Col. Brooks received ten letters this morning from Boston and Naw York making terrible threats, and filled with the lowest abuse. One writer said he would be as sssFinated in less than tweaty-four hours; others invited him Njrth, if he wished to be annihilated. Brooks Is much amused by these interesting epistles.

I had a talk with falm this morn'eg. He returned from Weatport on Sunday. J ? 1 told Llm that I had btoa informed that he to ted at Kiokapoo on tha 30th of March?made fly# Inflammatory speeches to the invaders from Missouri. He said ha hoped some man would testify to suoh etete mants under oath. He would Instantly eauee him to be arrtsted for perjury, resign bis seat in the oommlttee, insist on being sworn In as a witness, and deny the charge la general ana in detaU. ^ He said, on his henor as a gentleman, that he never voted in Kaftan ; never offered to vote ; never thought or votix g; never advised any man to vote ; but, on the con trary, trtsd to dissuade men from voting. He made a speech, or several speeches to the Mlesouriens ; but instead of belrg of an inflammatory character (he said) they were rather ultra-conservative in tone and spirit, j Ah he will call witzesies to substantiate those state meets, which, however, I am ready to believe without any other evidence than his word, I will not anticipate the testimony on this point, by stating the " polmti'''he made in his remarks to the Missoarlsms, on the 30th of Yesterday afternoon ths Congressional Investigating Commission held a cejret session. Eye witness#* of the cowardly murder of Mr. Brown, of Leavenworth, were examined under cath.

I went over to Platte county immediate y after dinner in order to ascertain whether any companies of armed men were leaving tbe State to aid in enforcing the Dra conian code of the Batons ol Kansas. I could ascertain nothing at Weston. I therefore went to the vioinity of l'latte City; took supper at the house ol a pro-slavery man, and directed and listened to the con versation of half a dozen loungers who were oongregated around the door. ... . One of them remarked that he had been at Platte City in the forenoon, and had seen "Old Dave" there, who said that be '-didn't intend to go over to Kansas again Oil there wus fighting to be done, end then, by G?d, he would be round." . ? , . I sltpt in a house near the hanks of the Missouri, and returned to this city about ten o'olock. I met Mr. John Hutchinson, who left Lawrence on Thursday morning and arrived here Tart night. . He was sent by the citizens of Lawrence with a note to Colonel Sumner, ctmmsnder of the trcops at Fmt Lea venworth, requesting him, if he could not assist the citi zens in defending their town, at least to station a body of troopB in the vicinity to prevent the mob which threat ens ft from proceeding to sanguinary extremities. Us deihe^msjoil'y of the Investigating Committee also sailed on Col. Sumner for the same purpose this morning. He replied, he wished he could do something; but he nadno pewer to move without orders. . Mr. Hutchinson says that a meeting of tha citizens of I-awrence was held on Wednesday morning, to see It any peaceable measures could be taken to prevent the mob which threatens them from oomtng into town. , On Tuesday evening Mr. Cox, a pro-slavery citizen of Lawrence, at the request of Mr. William Hutchinson, went np to Lecompton for the purpose of ascertaining from the Marshal, L B. Donelson, If anything couldt be dona, peaceably, to prevent the monster posse he had summoned 1rom ente.iug ths eity. Mr. Cox staid srith Mr. Donelson till night and returned to Lawrence on Wedneeday morning. Ho said that he asked Mr. Doual scn if be would bo able to control those men if tbey en tered tbe town? , . .. Mr. Don else n replied, " I don't know that I can.

Upon reeaivieg this reply, the citizana held apubUe meeting, and drew up a letter to the Marshal, tha sub stance of which is thus given by Mr. Hutchinson, who was one of the crmmittee appointed to draw it up:? "We bare reliable Information that large armed forces have collected, in pursuanoe of your proclamation, around Lawrenoe; and In order that there may be no misunderstanding, we wish to know what jour demands upon this people are. _ "We say, moat truthfully and moat ear neatly, that tha Marshal, and every person acting under him, will ba al ? ? ? a._ 1m. 1 ? ? ~ ? aM.inar Anv Inhflnl? lowed te execute tent of Lawrenoe, IT iicinwu ? ?-?J " , any legal preoeaa ageinat any inhabi a, and, If called upon, we are ready to serve as a posse in making these arrests.

THE NICARAGUA MASS MEETING. ?peech of Padre V1JI1, (h( Slc?r??BM ?!?*? later? Interesting Letter from t^erHelM. Upon the breaking up of the greek meeting in the Pert, on Frldey night, the men of people there present, aa if moved by a common impulse,defiled fato Broadway, and, aooompanted by Sbelton's band, marched up that great therenghfare to'the Metropolitan Hotel?the preeenthead qoartera of the Nlcaiaguan Embassy. Tfiare moat hare been at leant ten thou said men In the precession, and their ealm, dignified and determined appearance gave evi dence of the latenehy of the public feeling upon the prin ciple! that they were collected together to advoeate. Arrived In front of the Metropolitan Hotel, tbe prooec itoi halted in ene eompaot maae, filling the entire street in trsnt of that great edifice. In a few momenta Padre Vijil, the Nftarsgrun Mlnlstew, accompanied by hie eeeretary, appeared upon the balcony of the ?ecoad i lory, and was introduced to the aeaemWy by Appleton Oakamtth, Esq. He waa reoelved with tremendoue a> planee, In the midst of whlsh the band struck up the Kir of "See the Conquering Hbro Comes," wtftle cheer after cheer succeeded one another in auiok succession. Am moou ae the excitement? had'a little enbeided, the Padre, through the interpretation of Mr. Oahaeaith, made a few brief remarks. He eaid:? That this unexpected demonstration of tbe citi zens of New York to do honor to the humble repre sentative of a struggling people had so affected htm, added to his limited knowledge of the Ame rioen language?fbr he would not eey English'Iangosge? that he oould say bat little; but he wee glad of this op Krtunlty to express to the citizens ot this great repub on behalf of the government whish he bed'the honor to lepieeent, the high eppreeistion ia whioh they were held by hie oouutxymeu, not alone for tbe sympathy which had been mam ested in their behalf by private in dividuals, but also for the recognition and countenance which the United States as a nation had extended to sards them. That he himself was engaged in a sacred calling ? one which leads mankind to a better and kinder appre ciation of humanity, and brings him- nearer to his God? bis lite was passed within the quiet preolncts of the church, and many might think that it ill became him to engage in a manner disconnected with his profession In the politioal affairs ot his country. But to such- he would say that he came here on no common mission, there are duties whioh impel a man be-youd the ordinary interests of Church, and State, and such are now impol ing him in the great errand which ho has come here to perform. He had heard for thirty years the cannon of discordant factions booming through a land that God had intended for a paridtse?he had seen the walls of His sicred edifice crumble beteath the burning shot, and its most holy sanctuary defiled to sanguinary purposes?he had seen families divided sgainst each other and home steads laid waste; and now, when by tne infaalon of new elements there was a chance for all these things to end; when his people had adopted a government which would insure Interest tranquility; when brother was recon ciled with brother, and father with son, the hand of ag. greeeion is raised against them by a neighboring State, who, with eerviles in their ranks, and aided by one or the mightiest Powers of Christendom, is marching to in vade their territory and make it once more the theatre ot blood shad and misrule. Could he remain within his cloistered cell and Bee such things without adding his mile to the effort for his country's good? No. Far from it. He must go forth like Peter the Hermit, of old, to preach a crusade In favor of his suffering country. And so he had come here to drink from the very foun tains of liberty?to study our institutions, to learn our laws, so that when he returns to his own land he msv go there enlightened and refreshed, to eommenoe the regeneration of his people. He was bete in a diplomatic capacity, and It would not become him to speak pub.loly of matters ol policy be tween his government and oar own.

Look at the filibusteringhistory of John Bull tor tbe past eight years, and what do we witness? First, we have the consolidation of her power In the "Punjab," its people forced Into the ranks of the army, Its princes stripped of every shadow of authority, and the country rendered another footstool for the luxurious filibustering East India Company to rest Its geuty legs upon. Second?Bis "Bullshlp" not befog satisfied with the Punjab, resolved to enlarge "the arena of liberty," and ticked a quarrel with the King of Ihtrmab.
