Tsr CownmoM or Toinoi at Washington ince tbe acoaipliahment of that event which was to destroy our civil fabric, has been less alarming than we had any reason to expect We do not hoar that anybody has refused his mileage and salary, or that a single congres tonal rent has been TacateaV The Union tends la all lis integrity, unscathed and unim paired, and destruction and desolation, nnder a republican organization, have become very pre. Jr and well-behaved elements. . Tbe Home having perfected its organ! Tat ion, has got into very good working h in or, and the objects of immediate, pressing concern, such as the providing of ways and means for meeting P. O. and other contracts, are receiving due atten ties. In tbe appointment of committees, Mr Sherman, as is due will, no doubt, be called to the chairmanship of the Committee of Ways ud Means, and thus assume the post of leader I tbe House. This state of things is fa'al to- the game of Union Saving. It is a shower bath treatment, to the little foundling that was to form tbe nucle- l of a new Union party. The quiet that has succeedei tbe organization of tbe House, is killing oat the whole thing too suddenly; and effectually, for a wholesome regard for excite- Bient and amusement in the approaching cam paicn. The states that were tnovitig in the natter of seconding their representatives Congress, finding their shores knocked away, re subsiding into little more common sense. South Carolina stauds almost alone ij its incipi- eat treason. Virginia respectfully declines to come into the grand convention to plot nullifi cation and secession ; Maryland indignantly refuses and denounces the scheme as treason able ; Texas and Florida signify their determi nation to stand by tbe Uuioo j Tennessee and Kentucky were never more hearty in their alle giance. Mississippi alone responds to South Carolina, and she only so far as to consent to go into a southern convention to consider whether the Union shall be broken up or not. This is pitiful result of the three months terrific bluster and bravado we have been treat ed to. Even South Carolina will lapse into quiet and grumbling acquiescence when she finds that she must stsnd alone in bcr treason, and we shall lose the satisfaction of seeing her disciplined into order by a republican adminis tration. Tbis state of things ia very melancholy for the prospects of the new Union party. If no body is just about to quit the Union of course there is no call for the prostration of our north ern alarmists on their marrow bones to entreat them" to stay. Tbe need of a union party if there is no diruoioo party, or next to none, is a paradox T Events are making the position of onion saving painfully awkward. If the South generally had only joined in with South Carolina and raised the flag of disunion, the union party might at least have made a respect able show. Now there will be no alternative for tbem but to sink their eminent respectability and go in for democracy. It was unkind iu the southern disunionists to stop their clamor so soon. But this is a miserable world, aud we are all "poor critters." The South has come to the conclusion, and Jeff Davis has made tbe announcement, that she will not secede until the republican administration that is to be, hall violate tbe constitution and make war on the rights- of the South ; and. they begin to realize that these contingencies afford a very meagre prospect for alarm.

Fiat lit New tourThe burn ing of a tenement house a Elm street, Now York Thorsdsy evening, was attenJed with hor rors second only to those of the Lawrence trag. edy. The house wa oceopied by twenty fam ilies, including abot etia hundred persons. The fire was first dieovered in the basement at about half-part seven in the evening, and spread with astonishing rapidity. In less than 6re minutes th stairway leading to the upper floors was in fames, and egress from the usual passages was impossible. Many jumped out of the window's and others were rescued by the firemen. Sev eral were seen on the roof of the building, and the cries of those within could he heard lor some time after the flames had reached the up per stories. The building was of such height that it was impossible t reach IhoM iu tbe on. per stories, and the lower stories were soon fill ed with flumes. Some were reecuod seriously burnt. The bitdiug fell at about midnight. and between twenty-five and thirty poor crea tures perished in the ruins. his Tsut.s at Chari.kstowx. The trial of Ste vens, who wss so severely wounded at Harper's Ferry, was concluded at Churlestowo on the 4th, the jury rendering a verdict after being out about fifteen minutes, of guilty on all the counts in the indictment. It li stated that the prisoner received the verdict with indifference. Tbe trial of Uazlilt, the last of the prison ers, was commenced on the Tib. Messrs.

Senate, which has token place iiiee our hist issue, is thus uliuded to by the N. Y. Tribune : The election of Got. Chnse is a just tribute to his exulted character, his distin guished talents, and tbe strict fidelity to principle which bus always marked his puitlic career. As he was one of the ear liest among the lending statesmen of the country to identify himself with the Re publican party, when mich a step tested the earnestness of man's convictions, and his mornl conrnge, he still remains one of its chief representatives, now that it has come.to be u power iu the land, is on tbo eve of taking the government into its hutidg. A Tkian View op tub Cokstiti'tiox. Mr Wigfull of Texas, io a speech in the Senate i n the 6lh, asserted thnt, though Daniel Wibstir had been regarded as the expounder of the Con stitution, he did not understand its first princi ples, and the Fit hers of the Republic were mis taken in their theories. Texas ought lo know ! By a dispatch from San Francisco, we learn that the steamer Northerner was totally lost off Mendocino on Ihe 6th nit. Nearly forty per sons perished by tbe disaster. So fo make the matter perfectly regular, the marshal went with the summons himself and obtained Redpath's promise to obey it. An interesting discussion took plsce in the Senate at Washington, on the 3rd, on tbe Pre sident's veto of the bill for tbe improvemeot of the St. Clair Flats. The usual political divi sion was exhibited on the question. The South ern Disunionist Senators rostaiued tbe veto ; Mr. Chandler and Mr. Crittenden contended fur the constitutionality of the proposed improve ment. , m Legislative. The Solons at Columbus having got pretty well oveivtheir grand Spree, are now busily at work. If they will flint down upon the flood of new and totally nnimpor- tant Bills, uni give their attention at once and eutirely to tbe few matters really re quiring Legislative eare, we see not why they muy not iu two or three weeks return to the "bosom of their families." The Senate having passed the bill for tin reduction of Auditors' pny, is now looking after the county Treasurers. Mr. Jones' bill in the senate substitutes a fixed salary for the per centage and fees now allowed. In the House, Mr. Hitchcock has intro duced a bill amending the assignment law, giving the assignee the benefit of property exempt from sale on execution, and also the property belonging to the wife before roar riage, not converted to the husband's use' Also, giving assignees the benefit of the homestead law. A bill bus also been pre sented to prevent the sale of Burning Fluid. That any and all niider-wriliiigs of uny man, the same being a married mau, shall be roid, for any sum exceeding one hundred dollars, unless accompanied by the signa ture of the wife of the aid surety or bonds man, or ber consent to be obtained in writ ing. Three or four propositions to an. end the Constitution have been introduced. Sena tor Harrison proposes the single District system in electing uietnlers of the Legisla ture, and annual sessions Senator Mon roe has an anieudroent which proposes lo submit the proposition of annual sessions, with biennial election of Senators and an nual election of Representatives. Mr. Hitchcock, in the House, proposes to amend by providing for annual sessions, with bien nial elections of both Senators and Repre sentatives. Another House proposition is annual scsflions and aunual elections to both branches. Tbe people want to get at their Representatives at their election. If the mau truly represent! them, they can give him a re-election otherwise they can re ject him: And every true Republican should be willing that tbe people should have just exactly that power. We see that the Republicans are in doubt a fo an adjourtud session. - We hope light from some quarter may be vouchsafed these men who seem to be gropiug at mid-day. If session of the Legislature next year shall be a necessity Got. Deunisoa will Lave sense enough to rail it. A copy of the "Irrepressible- Conflict" TViikiu campaign pamphlet is on oar table.

Gidding Plumb, and Dr. Howe, ap peared before the Harper's Ferry Investigating Committee on the 3rd inat, Mr. Giddings stated wish lo be exmaiucd without delay, and the Committee politely consented. After answer ing Interrogations as to his residence, ano' the time he had served in Congress, hs stated "bis preemption that a note submitted to him, was written at the time indicated by the date. Its object was to answer a letter from John Brown, intimating that he would be in Andovor, and could lecture in Jefferson, where Mr. Giddings lived. John Brown came there accordingly on Saturday afternoon, while gentlemen of the vil lage were p'aying ball. lie, Mr. Giddings, was called aside and Introduced to Brown, and con sulted as to the arrangements for a lecture next day. He was not engaged more than three min ates on this subject, being Indisposed to any conference concerning the dollars and cents, but told Brown to come and lecture Brown did so the following afternoon. After the lec ture Mr. Gidding appealed to the audience, re citing the persecutions to which Brown hod been subjected in Kansas, the murdor of his son, and the fact that he then was an object of sym pathy, having no regular business on which to rely for support. A satisfactory sum was con tributed. , Brown accepted an invitation to tea, and remained three-quarters of an hour after ward. These were the only occasions when Mr, Giddings hud seen him. Brown, iu his lecture spoke of the duty of Christians to aid the slave regniuiu the natural rights which God gave him, and of doing unto the slave as we would have him do nolo us. From the fact that Brown had carried slaves from Missouri into Canada, and his arguments in favor of uid to laves to gain their liberty, and that he had no established residence or business, Mr. Giddings concluded Brown would aid slaves to escape, if opportunities offered. He had no other authority for this impression than the reasons given, and that was only generally entertained. Mr. Mason stated that John Brown had said in a letter that Mr. GioiliDgs would endeavor to form societies to raise .funds, and asked an ex planation f Mr. Giddings answered that he was unable to say what Brown thought. That John Brown, jr., called at his house one morning and said his father was in want of money. He wus just starting to deliver a lecture in Portage Coun ty, and the following day had agreed to bo iu Uuveuiiu, where one, O. P. Brown, who had been a Senator, and wus a man of influence, liv ed ; that be uudurrtood a society existed there for charitable purposes, such as assisting fugi tive slaves to escape ; thut in this hurry Mr. Giddings staled this luct lo J. Brown, Jr. A said hu would ask O. P. Browu lo assist his fiuher. That owing to indisposition, he relumed home without going to Ravenna, to fulfill his promise. Mr. Masou desired to know if Mr. Giddings's lectures had not a direct reforeuce to the insti tution of Slavery. Mr. Giddings replied they all referred to the fundamental principles of human governments, to the imprescriptible right of man to the na tural law or will of the Creator, as defined by publicists and philosophers in Christendom for the last two centuries. Those teachings assert the rights of every buniao soul to enjoy life, liberty, aud happiness. Mr. Mason inquired if this teaching of the n gher Law was regarded superior to human laws and the Constitution. Mr. Giddings answered, by the improper use of terms, we often confound our own ideas. He understood the term luw to apply only to such enactmeuts as accord with Divine will ; that writers say no enactment invading tbe nat ural law is of any moral validity whatever; that any enactment wh'ch seeks to take from an in nocent human being life or liberty, imposes no obligation on such a victim and confers no authority upou those who would deprive him of either ; that it is not only the rigdt of all men to treat such enactment as void, but it is the duty of every man to hold it up to detestation; that our Constitution recognizes these doctrines, declaring that no person shall be deprived of life. liberty or property, except by due process of law, that is, by indictment and conviction be fore a Court of competent jurisdiction, and a jury of bif peers. Such enactments possess no elements of law, but are gross usurpations are criminal iu themselves, and render those who en ic, who sustain, and who execute them, ac cessory to the crimes committed under them. Mr. Davis inquired if these doctrines applied to lunatics and insane persons. t Mr. Giddings said, certainly ; they arc, by society, secured from committing wrongs upou themselves ; secured in their lives, aud in all liberty which they can enjoy iu safety to them selves and otters. Mr. Duvis asked if minors have this right. Mr. Giddings answered Certainly , they arc under the protection of purentul affection until sufficiently developed lo judge for themselves. Dr. Howe staled tha the knew nothing of John Browu's affair iu Virginia. Dr. Howe declined to lake the oath to testify unless he was per mitted to enter his protest against the whole proceedings. Tbe committee granted this con cession. Dr. Howe then stated that he had known John Brown during the Kansas troubles end had sent him money aud arms; that Brown had gained his entire confidence as a man of tried honesty and courage ; that after the troubles had ceased iu Kansas, when Forbes and Senator Wilson wrote him that Browa intended to use the Kansas arms for unlawful purposes, orders were sent to Browa to take the arms and pro perty of the Kansas Aid Committee, then stor ed iu Iowa, iuto Kansas, and to be used only iu defense or freedom there. Dr. Howe had no means of kuowing whether the arms were the same Ukeo at Harper's Ferry, but supposed they were. Dr. Howe knew nothing of the convention in Canada. He was not privy to tbe attack on Harpers Ferry. He did not know of any organisation or society iu aid of Browu's plans. He believed Brown to be a couscien tions and honest mau, determined upon practi cal anti-slavery, bnt opposed to iosurreclioo or, bedding of blood, except in self-defense. Ik had given him aid and comfort as such. Wit ness being pressed to state what he meant by spreading practical anti-slavery dectrines, for which purpose contributions were msde, he il lustrated by comparison with efforts made to spread the Gospel among heathen, etc. James Rodpalh, tbe intimate friend and histo rian of Brown, has been summoned th second time by the Senate committee and has decided tog TU U, 8.

Thry are having a smnll Morgan affair tit Sandusky, Ohio. One Curtis ex posed the secrets of tho Suns of Malta, has since mysteriously disappeared There is some excitement about it, but on the whole it is not believed thut bo has been made a martyr. Northern visitors to mount Vernon aresuid to be subject to insult a annoyance. A party of Fluliiuelphians were closelv watched and subjected to insult a few days since. This must be remedied. Mount Vernon now belongs to the w hole country. JtT At a sale of negroes at Greenville, S. C, last week, George, a likely fellow, a joiner and carpenter, brought the great price of f 3.i00. JIo wus bought by the Rev. J. P. Boyco, who afterwards refused $4000 for him. Perhaps ho wants George to "join the church." t&m The New York democratic politi cians come up to Mr. O'Connor's doctrine on slavery without difficulty. George Wood says in a recent public letter ; "The regular worktug of the system (slavery) essentially gold and has no evil in it, and the conclusion is irrcsistublc that it is uot sinful." 8c Rev. Dr. B.iitd p;iid n visit to Fa ther Cliiuiqity's colony iu Illinois, and con d i ins the statements mudti by him ns to thu u tints of his colonists. "Fully two hundred families must be mainly sustained by clmi i ty till next harvest, and although their wants are supplied for the present they will be objects ot chanty for soinu tuui to come. Mr. Eullock of the Alabama Sen ate has a shrewd idea about disunion and the South, lie wants to hurry up the dis solution before a republican administration is chosen, because ho says the republicans would then give so many ollices to southern men ns to create a party iu that section that would prevent disunion. Chancellor Walworth of X. York, a descendant of John Rogers, the martyr, declures that it is definitely settled that he bad only two children, and not ten as the catechittJr tell?

Mr. Hoy l made the opening prayer, in which rever ence for his audience seemed to struggle with reverence for the Almighty, aud he used such language as this -c "O God, Thou God of heaven, hear these earthly gods iu these their prayers, for the sake of thv loy al Sou." Prof. Agassiz addressed a legisla tive educational meeting iu the Mussuchu sectts state house, on "The- true aims of Natural History." He made a strong ar gument against the development theory, showing thut the animals of the different geologic epochs ore radically different from each other and connected by no intermedi ate formrtions, indicating successive crea tions rather than progressive development. 3 The Boston American Tract socie ty is now publishing a monthly paper and a child's paper with good success. An ef fort wis made to get advertisements and other matter of the Boston society iuto the papers of the New York society, but that was refused, and fortunately, as now the Boston society has papers of its own, In w hich all matters of Christiau doctrine and life may be freely discussed. JQy- Rev. Henry Ward Beecher and Lucy Stone Black well addressed a womuu's rights meeting at the Cooper Institute, N. York, Thursday evening. Mr. Beecher took radical ground and argued that "wo men should be admitted to the same public trusts, and be awarded the Fame legal uud civil rights, thut man now enjoys." Saint Paul must be sent to look after Mr. Beech er. Mr. E. Ilaxton, of Beekman, Dutch ess County, N. Y., sold a fat steer, of his own raising, to a New York butcher, a few days since, for $350. The steer is a low grade Durham, 7 years old, and has been fattened for the last five years. He standi 5 feel 9 inches hgh at the withers, girths 10 feet 5 12 inches, and weighed ten days ago 3,452 pounds. rThe South Carolina Legislative Dis union Resolutions were received in tbe Ma ryland Legislature on the 3J inst., aud were it not for the plea of respect due a sovereign state, they would have been laid on the table. As it was, they were laid over till Wednesday next. Leading meu of both parties denounced them as treasonable. Only two members apologized for the course of South Carolina. A young man from the country, going to call ou some musical young la lies, was told that he must ask them to sing, and should they refuse he ought to press tbem. Accordingly he commenced, by re questing Miss Mary to favor him with a song. She gently declined, suid she had a cold, etc. "Well, then, Milli," suid our hero, "thuppose I ihqeeze you, dou't you think you might thing J" The girl faiuted immediately. Senor Estabau de Orledo and his wife left ou board the Quuker City, on Sat urday, for visit to his Cuban estates.. The happy couple were escorted to the waterside by a bevy of relatives end friends, nd there is no doubt but the charms of bis fair American prize will captivate tbe gal laul Cuban hidalgos completely as the charms of the Seocr'i yellow Spanish doub loons conquered the affectious of the bewil dered shopkerpcrs of oor own Brondwav. J A Washington correspondent thus speaks of Mr. Sickle's appearance In the House t "There Is a general stir mong the f ilrer portion of the audience ns Air. Sickles saunters quietly in slender figure, nttir ed with such Parisian foultlessness of taste that he has acquired the name or the bes' dressed mau iu the House.

His usnul style ol dress one that makes him the envy of every dnndy on Pennsylvania nveuuu for its distingue pcifcciion is a black dress coat, with velvet collar, and light gray trowsers, tnpcriiig down to the Rmull, shiny boots. His hands are encased in perfectly fitting kid gloves of some dark color, which he constantly wears, even in his scut. Ho lounges in a sort of nonchalant way npou his seat, seldom accosted by his fellow-members, and i.ppnrently quite unaware that he is the center for hundreds of curious eyes, lie is hoarding in private family, and, 'Teresa' is with him' Poi.incAt"Fi.AK Movkmknt The Wash ington correspondent of the New York Tri bune, speuking of the change of voles frorh Sherman to Pennington, snys s The supporters of Mr. Sherman march ed over iu solid column to Mr. Pennington, changing the ground they had so long nnd so gallantly maintained lor a new position this flank movemeut being executed in the face of the enemy , and while exposed to his fire without the loss of a man. It challenged the admirution of the foe, com pelling Democratic lenders to institute com parisons between their own brokeu ranks uud the impregnable front uf the allies. The logical deduction from the well execu ted maneuver was expressed by hundreds of Southern lips : "If," suid they, "these Black Republicans can "uow elect Penning ton, their triumph in the Presidential con test is a foregone conclusion. At a lute public meeting in Mobile, Alabama, called to ratify something, a Dr. Lylis, in presenting himself upon tbe plat form, commenced his address by expressing his regret that the bones of some of his kindred "enriched the soil of one of the Yankee states." He was sorry that it was so, and if his own wishes could control the dust, he would have it at once removed to southern sepulture. This is rather running the thing into the ground. Italy. There is a report by the la-t arrivals thut the European congress will assemble ut Paris on the loth of this month. The congress has been substantial ly abandoned upon the general understand ing that it cannot uid in the settlement of the Italian questions, which are in a fair way lo settle thcniS'-lves Many indica tions in Italy point to n renewulof the war, which seems to be expected by the Italians and desired by the democratic portion of theui. Its occurrence depends wholly on the effort of the pope to regain the control of tho Rotnngua, with the aid of Austria nnd Naples. In that case the A'enetian uud Neapolitan populations would be assis ted to rise against their masters, and a conflict would begin not to be ended until all Italy shall be free from foreign control nnd ready for the confederation of the free Italian states. There is a proposition to form a new government of the Central stutes and the lloinnua, which is intended to qualify the jealousy of Austria that Sardi nia will become too powerful. Whatever tnrn affairs many lake, the people of Italy were neve." more hopeful than at this mo rn it of achieving aud ma ntaining their complete independence. The greatest op-.-tacle ut p'eseut iu their way is the deter mination of the pope to cling to his tempo ral power uud the immense moral snpnoi t which he receives in this from his millions of spiritual subjects !n all parts of the world. But it is something that many of these subjects are learning the distinction between political uiid'spirituul loyalty, and are deter mined to reconcile their religion with the doctrines of liberty and human rights. flgyWe tin i hat our Democratic pur ists iu this and other cities will not fail to give tteir appreciative attention to the ex posure made by Mr. Wendell before the Priming Investigation Cinmittee, of the patronage bestowed by the Adminisiratfon upou the Kuow-Nothing Jewett of The Commercial Advertiser, of Buffalo. That paper is the organ of Mr. Fillmore, and lias ever lieeu foremost, according to ihe measure of its ubilities, in the denunciation of Catholic Democrats and the proscription of foreigners. It is notorious that it would have died long ago were it uot for the subsidies granted to it, first through the Post Oflice Department iu Pierce's lime, and latterly ihroujrh the Printing Comniis s'ou under Mr. Buchanan. Among the anomalies o! this ninun ilous Administration, is ibis devotion ol Democratic patronage to the support ol a Ki'ow Nothuigoi i?uu. Tribune. Thk Spanish war is Moimcco has been only a series of skirmishes thus far, neither party showing a disposition to a decisive engogeincnt. The Spaniards suy, however, that they are becoming acquainted with the Moorish style of fighting, and that they are confident of nn easy campaign through the country as soon as their Com plete reinforcements arrive. Perhaps Spain will realize most from the war iu the occa sion it gives for the revival of loyally in her colonies The Cubans are alive with pat riotic devotion to the home government, and voluntary subscriptions of money for the wur are being made iu the most liberal manner. One plunter near Havaniia bend ed the last with n,000, and a $3,000 prize to the soldier who plants tbe Grst Spanish flag on tho ramparts of Tangiers. This new feeling of loyalty might be said to injure our prospects in Cuba, ouly that we never had any to speak or Took Hi'kgary still groans und chafes under the new rigors of Austriuu despot ism, and some of her bravest sous offer themselves us martyrs for iheir couuiry's liberty, but no blow has yet beeu struck, uud there is uo evidence of any such op portunity, as warrants the hope of a Hun garian revolution. The most that is accom plished by the present distress is ihe deep ening of the feeling of the people and Ihe keeping alive of the fire of patriotism till the hour to strike shall coine. t&. Nominations and offices bring their burdeu of cares. During the contest iu the House ou Monday, Mr Peuniugtou was exceedingly restless, and remarked that he would "willingly give his whole salary to have the cup pas from him."
