DAILY EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON CITY: THUKSDAY AFTERNOON, JULY 14.1853. 0""The office of the "Daily Evening Star" i? on the ionth tide of D ?treet, two door* we?t of 12th ?treet. Subscribers who are not served regularly will please bear with us for a trays longer. We are reorganizing cur corps of carriers and will soon have things so systematically arranged that bere will Debut few omissions. The Evening Star having double the circulation of any daily paper publish ed in Washington, is consequently by far the best advertising medium in the District. Business men should bear this fact in mind. Botsia and Turkey. The hour at which we yesterday received per telegraph, the Arabia's important news,prevented us from commenting upon it. It tells the talc, we take it, of the be ginmg of a war, the end of which the mind of man knoweth not. All the civi lized world unite in the belief that since the days of the truly great Peter, Russia has been preparing to act towards Turkey fcs she seems now about to act. The times seems propitious for her bloody, un just and monstrous intended crime. Yet we hope and believe that she lias greatly mistaken her occasion. Iler cabinet are calculating strongly upon the apparent complete subjugation of all the various peoples of the European continent ; know ing too, that her aggrandizement^ any point she may desire, is the interest of afj the European reigning families. We are not among those who believe that the last unsuccessful efforts of the peoples of Eu rope to obtain their political and civil nghts, have served really to discourage them. On the other hand, we conceive that they have merely served to impress upon them the belief that by acting in concert, sacrificing individual interests for the time being, and coming forward to the work with more unity of will, they must succeed in putting down those who would perpetuate the chains of civil and political disabilities under the weight of which they groan. Now, in this eastern contest. Austria and Prussia, or rather the governments of those countries, must stand with the Czar, who owns them, politically; for they only live, move, and have their being in his will and pleasure. France and England are bound, sooner or later, to side with Turkey; not only from their commercial necessities, but because popu lar will with them is all powerful. The sympathy of the English for Turkey is truly philanthropic and patriotic, while that of the French grows out of their ha tred for Russia and their national desire to engage in a great war with some power, without being particular as to what power it may be. The war-cry with which England is to enter into the contest (her aristocratic government being forced into it by popu lar opinion at home) will be?down with despotism! How long will England be fighting Russia with that motto practi cally emblazoned on her every banner, before it does its work on the people of all Germany and Italy, who are every where kept down (or " tranquil," as the bulletins express it) only by the bayonets pointed at their breasts as they pursue their daily business avocations. The great day of reckoning is fast ap proaching, or we are very much mistaken. The ambition and selfishness of Russia are to be the instruments or causes firin" v ? the train which is in the end to consume the elaborate superstructure of special privilege under which the toiling millions of Europe now chafe with ten-fold more impatience than they manifested ten years ago, when they were comparatively igno rant of the ease with which, bv thorough combination and a properly arranged effort, they may obtain their liberties. The Pretident's Progress. We learn, by letter, that office-seekers I from all sections of the (J** ion are follow ing in the President's train, guzzling the wines and stuffing the viands provided at the expense of the p*-ople along his Ex cellency s rout*. Th?<+*- gentlemen seem to enjoy their free quarter* with amazing gusto. They are principally from the class who were in the la*t, or iu some previous Congress. They ar* still cutting and carving in anticipation of the future, ? though nearly all the very fat plunder had not already been divided out. I.vformation.?We stand ready to fur- : msh to our subscribers through the medi um of our columns, any information ! within our reach concerning facts trans piring in the transaction of the Govern ment's business at this point,or relativeto the methods of doing public business here, on the receipt of post-paid letters inking for it specifically. Of course we enter tain no idea of making charges for ren dering such service. <?7* An iron bridge is to be erects over the canal on Virginia avenue, a luw hav ing been passed at the last meeting of the I City Uumcila for thu purpose, ] Religioua Newspaper Controversies. Baltimore, to judge from the columns of the Clipper, has for some weeks past been in a stew over a war of crimination and recrimination between lots of dispu tatious gentlemen, who from praising their own creeds and practices in the public prints, have got to abusing those of others, with even more zeal. Such controversies so conducted, only serve as arguments from which scoffers draw ammunition for_their war against all re ligions and creeds. They debase the character of the Christianity of our land, being replete with evidence that the writers are filled with pride, envy, bigotry, a persecuting spirit and all per- j vading illiberality?characteristics which make their pretentions to be defenders of the true faith absolutely blasphemous, as it were. Turk never abominated chris tian in the dark age of the Crusades, ^ivhen christian, too, fancied he was serving the Lord by cutting the throats of those who failed to believe as he did,) with more apparent relish, than seems to be manifested in the spirit with which this Baltimore controversy is carried on. What good for the community is to come of it, we cannot imagine. Gentle men, we pray you moderate your zeal, if but for the sake of the pure and holy cause you are all bringing into contempt in your efforts for its vindications. Your are all fighting shadows, gentlemen. Spirit of the Morning Press. The L nion to-day devotes much space to the details of the several popular glori fications over the President as he wends his way north,'and republishes various ac counts thereof from other journals. The editor also defends the President from the Intelligencer's criticism of the day before, in which the latter journal took the liberty of dissenting from the propriety of Presidential speech-making to the peo ple in the streets, &c. The Union also quotes the Albany Evening Journal to prove that the Albany Atlas is acting in good faith upon the question of acquies cence in the fugitive slave law, that paper being one of those alleged to be still lean ing towards abolitionism, though in the receipt of patronage from the Administra tion. The Clipper republishes its onslaught on Governor Lowe on account of his re prieve of young Connor, which led to the publication of the Governor's card in reply. It also further continues the reli gious disputations in an article headed " The Catholic Press vs. the Republican Press," and also defends the common school system of Baltimore. The Republic discourses upon the waste of human life in Manchester, England, owing to the pecular employment of its inhabitants, and relative to the impolicj of its entire dependence on the staple of a foreign country. The editor also re publishes, from the Californian, an ex tract to prove that Professor Stowe is wrong in entertaining the foolish notion that Chinese labor can be either philan thropically or economically substituted for slave labor in the United States. The following is the Californian s account of the very peculiar tastes of " John China man," as developed around the diggings: The length and breadth of popular senti ment against them in California is as a wide t|ulf, separating them more and more every day from the hope of obtaining established rights and privilege? as citizens in the State. The depth of degradation to which they are fallen in public opinion is as the bottom "of a deep pit. considerably beyond the reach of means of oxtrication. They are sunk im measurably lower than the native Indians, in the estimation of the miners. Lower than the beasts that prey upon the flesh of inferior ani mals ; for the bear, it is said, will turn from tainted meat, whereas ? John' despises nothing of the creeping or crawling kind. Rats, lizards, mud-terrapins. rank and indigestible shellfish, 'and such small deer,'have been, j and continue to be. the food of the ? no ways particular' Celestial, where flour, beef, and bacon, and other fare suitable to the stomachs j of ? white folk' abound. It is not to be won dered at, tderefore. that the habits of the ! Chinese in California should excite ineffable disgust, and turn the stomach of the stoutest Anglo-Saxon." The Inteltigencer is filled for the most part with standard communications and ' extracts upon scientific, literary and in tellectual topics. It also treats its readers to three columns of book notices prepared as usual with more care, taste, and liter ary acumen than those which grace the pages of any other journal in the United States, The editor also publishes an ex tract from a letter averring that the elec tive Judiciary system has been found to work very badly in Louisiana Ot'R Half Sheet.?Although we caused two hundred and fifty more sheets to be wet down yesterday than were prepared for printing the Star on the day before, ere our patrons were served, it turned out, so great was the demand for the paper, that we fell si ort one hundred and fifty copies of a sufficiency to 6erve our j city subscribers. So we were forced to strike off that number of half sheets, em bracing only our local and most import ant telegraphic news. [?y- The usual lists of arrivals at the i the principal Hotels for the 24 hours up to j 11 A. M. to-day, is crowded out by a press of news. We notice however among them, the names of Major Sedgwick, U. S. A., Hon. tITiram McCollough, of Md., Governor W. B. J^brook, of South Car olina, and Lieut. J*n^rs Schaumburgi of Philadelphia. Washington New*. f iMPORtANt CONSULAR A P1WINTXENTS. A day or two before the President left Washington, m cabinet council, various important oonsular app< rintments were finally disposed of. Th.ere was much outside pulling and ha'aling for these places, embracing as they do, more than one of the exceedingly fat positions in that branch of the patronage of the Ad ffiinistration. Doubtless, the members of the Government thank God that they have thus gotten rid of so much of the pressure of the office-sceking fraternity as was involved in the efforts of some five hundred patriots to secure these particu lar posts. Like all those connected with the dis tant press at this point, we have to "scratch" for such items of news. In this case we have, perhaps, to guess for some portion of it. Yet we announce with perfect confidence in the correctness of the statement, that the following Consular appointments were made on that occa-1 sion, viz: Lima.?J. Caleb Smith, of California* Pernambuco.?William Lilley, of Ohio ; i St. John's, P. R.?John Parsons, of Flo ! rida; Mantanzas.?Edward Worrell, of Delaware ; Marseilles. ? Samuel Dins more, of New Hampshire; Glasgow. Philip T. Heartt, of New York: Genoa.? E. Felix Foresti, of New York; Elsineur.? F. B. Wells, of New York : Leith.?Jas. McDowell, of Ohio ; Turk's Island.?John L. Nelson, of Maryland ; Mannheim.? John Scherff, of Maryland: Bahia.?John R. Bennett, of Missouri; St. Jago de Cuba.?Stephen Cochran, of Pennsylva nia; Sumatra.?Commercial Agent Robt. R. Purvis, of Sumatra. Another Presidential Excursion.? We are informed that thePresident designs visiting the Berkley Springs (in Virginia) very shortly after his return from his present northern trip. If so, he will merely accompany his estimable lady to that point, returning to Washington and to his labors without delay, we take it. The Navy of the United States.?The National Treasury will soon be forced to bleed freely on account of the parsimon^ manifested by the last Congress in their legislation with reference to the Navy, wherein the recommendations of the De partment and its several bureaus were un ceremoneouslv set at nought. With full knowledge of the tremendous ratio in which our foreign commerce is increasing in every direction, thereby rendering a corresponding increase in our naval force absolutely necessary, (because our Navy exists only for the protection of that com merce.) Congress chose to pare down every important appropriation proposed by those whose duty it was to explain to them the necessities or the service. So far did they carry this policy, as that they refused to allow sufficient for the preservation of the ships already built and commenced, with out appropriating a dollar towards meet ing the naval demands of our so-wonder fully-increasing foreign trade. This policy was the result of the influence of ignor ance and deinagogueism combined, among the members: enough persons to affect their action being unfortunately in pub lic life, who are either incapable of taking statesmanlike views of the ne cessities of this branch of the public service, or are selfish enough to deny to the Government the means for its proper developement, in order thus to propitiate the favor of the ignorant at home, by tickling their prejudices. They have deliberately resolved that the Ameri can Navy shall only exist in name as it were ; so crippling its efficiency, as that in case of war, we will be much weaker on the ocean, than we were when the war of 1812 commenced. That is, when we compare the relative considerations of our naval service now, with that of the other maritime nations, one and all. Even Austria, with an oceanward com merce second to that of some of the second class States of the American Union, has a 1 Navy superior to ours in its number of guns, ships, and seamen. Indeed, when there was a symptom of trouble brewing out of the Hulsemann and Webster cor respondence, Austria placed in the Medi terranean as though by magic, a fleet of war steamers sufficient at a blow to have annihilated our littlo squadron commanded by the late gallant Commodore Morgan. We, alone of all the maritime nations, are not building war steamers at this time, while our necessities for them are increasing ten times as rapidly as are those of any other Government. The acquisition of California in afford ing us wonderful current supplies of gold, did little for our future, in comparison with the effect of that acquisition upon our Pacific, East India and Chinese seas commerce. While the commerce is well nigh doubling itself in every two or three years, the Governments' means of afford ing it adequate protection and of extend ing it have been peremptorily cut off by Congress. It is said that this is the re sult of the growing unpopularity of the Navy. This may be true. But, if so, this truth is, in turn, the result of the spread of ignorance and illiberal prejudice such as were foreign to the minds and hearts of the people of the United States even as far back as fifty years ago. Such ignorance and prejudice have been fostered by the class of unfit public men who have of late years managed tg worm themselves into T ' - ~"i the councils of the nation. The idea that we can long have * prosperous foreign commerce carried onin American bottoms without a Navy adequate for its protec tion, credits the governments of Europe, our commercial rivals, with an inclination in any case to do justice with the full knowledge that we are incapable of pro tecting our rights, should they invade them. He who credits those governments with any such intentions, must shut out from his memory all the leading facts in volved in the history of the dealings of all of them with other nations. Post Office Stamped Envelopes.?A correspondent of the Star says: It has been announced that these envelopes will be furnished at $3.20 cents per hundred for those stamped for single postago. the charge being for envelopes alone five for a rent. Now if I want to obtain a dollar's worth, I get thir ty-one. and hence pay seven cents for that number of envelopes, which is at the rato of more than twenty-two and r half rents per hundrrd. Now where does this excess go? Into the Treasury or into tho pockets of the Postmasters ? Will you or the Department enlighten us on this subject ? X. Y. Z "We learn, on inquiry, that these stamped envelopes are sold at the post offices for the most part in packages of 150 at $3.20, 50 at $1.60, and 25 at 80 cents. If our correspondent had therefore been content to buy either 100, 50, or 25 he would not have been shaved in his purchase. It is the habit in all post offices to cause the customer, not the office, to lose the frac tion when exact change cannot be made. 1 he propriety of this will be obvious on recollecting that, otherwise, the loss of the Postmaster would in the aggregate be considerable from this cause. We fancy that in the particular case to which our correspondent refers, there was some mis take in making change?that's all. Correspondence of the Evening Star. Baltimore, July 13?10 r. m. .1 grand illumination and entertainment waj given this evening, at Patterson's Park, near Fairmount, and contiguous to the hospit able residence of Col. Mabury Turner. It was commenced with the firing of cannon, which was a signal for the people to congregate. Not | lesi than ten thousand persons, male and fe male, young and old were present The eu j tiro Park was brilliantly illuminated, and prcbented a beautiful appearance. Col. Tur ner gave a ?umptuou3 entertainment. The entiro fete passed off in admirable style. I learn that the late lamented Judge Glenn has left an estate of nearly or quite a half million dollars. He made a will, and be que;ithed it entirely to the widow, under cer | tain restrictions, during her life time, after which it reverts to tho childron. I think the citizens of Washington, George town, Alexandria and other sections of your latitude, must very ?oon discover the value of an independent penny paper like the Star. To-day's number exhibits an imposing ap pearance, and gives to its readers an amount of news, by telegraph and otherwise, which, without an afternoon journal like yours, would sleep dormant until the following morning. I uin not alone in regretting that Governor Lowe has condescended to enter into a news paper controversy. The Clipper htu, a right to say what it pleases, but as Governor of the State of Maryland. Mr. Lowe has mistaken the true taste to attempt a vindication of his ex clusive and undisputed prerogatives. As a ?private citizen, he would have been applaud ed for repelling the imputation I am told that Connor, the youth under sentence of death, has no wish to escape the just expiation of his offence.

Banquet at Philadelphia.?The ban quet given to President Pierce by the authorities of Philadelphia on Tuesday evening is described by the papers of that city as a splendid affair. Mr. Gilpin, the Mayor of Philadelphia, proposed the Pres ident's health, and in his reply Gen. Pierce very happily said? That there was one thing he did not like to omit, and it is this. To you, Mr. Mayor, and the gentlemen who surround me, so many of whom differ with, me politically, I tender my hearty thanks for the glorious manner in which you have received us, and I sincerely trust that when a chance of circumstances takes place, we shall have the grace to do the same thing in the same manner."
