IT?* The Evening Star having double
the circulation of any other daily paper
published in Mi1 ashington, is consequently
by far the best advertising medium in
the District. Business men should bear
this fact in mind.
How to got the Star.
Those of our citizens living at a dis
tance from our office who desire to take
the Star or send us communications, will
find boxes at the following named places
which are opened every day:

The Turco-Rauian Question
?continues to occupy elaborate space in
most of the newspapers. It, however, ap
pears to be "in a nut shell" as follows:
Russia assumes the right to be the pro
tector of the Greek Church in the domin
ions of the Sultan, and claims that the
latter shall grant privileges to that Church
greater than those enjoyed by any other
Christian church in his dominions, pro
claiming, the while, that she seeks only to
compel the Sultan to deal by the Greeks
(religionists) as he deals by the Latins.
Turkey denies Russia's right to meddle
in her domestic concerns ; and moreover,
protests that the Latins are not favored
by her over the Greeks, and of coursc re
fuses to make the regulations which Rus
sia demands. Whereupon Russia has sent
her armies to occupy certain portions of
the Sultan's dominions, which she pro
claims her intention of holding until Tur
key complies with her requirements.
Russia still declares that she docs not
conceive the armed occupation of a por
tion of Turkey after this fashion, to be
war upon her.
England and France, both of which
Governments arc under treaty obligations
to Turkey to protect her from Russia in
the event of any such occurrence as we
describe above, have fleets at hand to
enter the Dardanelles for her defence,
whenever they shall be formally notified
that Russia has crossed the Rubicon. So
the case stands at last dates from the
other side of the Atlantic. No man in
his senses believes that Russia would
permit any Power on earth to assume to
^ *? -?-?*? ?? <'
what she holds to be her right in the
matter of the Greek church in Turkey.
Nevertheless, we judge from the advices
by the last steamer that there will be no
war; at least nntil the spring opens. On
the arrival of the French and English
fleets at Constantinople ncgoitations will
again be opened, which will afford Russia
the desired pretext for delaying actual
war, nutil she can enter upon it to most
History of ins Baltimoub and Ohio
Railroad.?1We are indebted to Mr.
Smith, Superintendent of Transportation
u{)on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, for
"A History and Description" of that
work, "with an appendix," published by
John Murphy & Co., Baltimore. This
book is exceedingly valuable, inasmuch
as it embraces a very carefully-prepared
statistical and chronological account of
the road, with admirable descriptions of
everything of importance connected with
its construction; embracing proper expo
sitions of the connection which many dis
tinguished gentlemen have had with it
from first to last; The book is very cred
itable to the author, and should be in the
library of all who desire to obtain a
knowledge of the heretofore almost total
ly unwritten portiou of the business of
railroad making in the United States.

Spirit of the Morning PreM.
The Sun discusses the extreme folly
and futility of political organizations to
effect the distribution of the patronage of
Government, incidently arguing to show
the Itoinogenuity of the people of the
United States, and, consequently, the
fact that it will be utterly impossible for
any foreign born citizens to perpetuate
their mother tongue, customs or early
associations in this country, for more than
a half a century at most. The views of the
editor on this subject are replete with
sound sense and proper public spirit.
The Intelligence)- qu>tes with expres
sions of great gratification, an article from
the Charleston Mercury, in favor of the
construction of the Pacific Railroad by the
Government. Those sympathising with
that journal having heretofore been most
straight laced in their views of the pow
er ot the General Government in ettch
connection. We have before remarked
that we place little confidence in the
idea that the Administration have de
termined to throw their influence in favor
of the construction of the work by means
taken from the National Treasury. Nous
verrons. The samo paper also contains
elaborate and interesting articles (not ed
itorial) upon new books, Japan, spiritual
rappings, &c., &c.
The Union republishes the recent
speeches delivered by Messrs. Guthrie,
Davis, and Cushing, at Newark, N. J.,
and editorially defends the " expansion"
views of General C., which have been so
extensively assailed in the journals of the
other party. In this article the editor
lays down what we presume to be the
views of the Administration upon the sub
ject of territorial acquisition, which we
quote as follows, viz:
" That general policy is to maintain pacific
and amicablc relations with all foreign na
tions?to cnltivatc fraternal relation? between
our own States?to adopt all constitutional
means for the development of their resources,
and for strengthening the bonds of their
union?to guard sedulously against any in
fringement on their rights, and thus to secure
the full enjoyment of all their energies, and
by this general policy to hasten on in the
inarch of national greatness, and consequently
to hasten, by the forco of our example, the
diffusion of republican sentiments and insti
tution. This is our only legitimate mode of
propagating republicanism and extending our
territorial border*, except when forced, in
self-preservation or in defence of our national
honor, to anticipate the gradual but sure pro
gress of our destiny."
The same paper declares the reason
why the New York Evening Post receives
none of the patronage of the Administra
tion to be, because it is not a Democratic,
bift an abolition sheet. That is, that it
fails to stand upon the Baltimore Demo
cratic platform. The Union also repub
lishes an article from the Lancaster In
telligencer and Journal, Mr. Buchanan's
immediate organ, in which it is denied
that there has been any misunderstanding
between that gentleman and Secretary
Marcy, or that the failure of the Admin
istration to suspend the pending negoti
ations at Washington with reference to
the Fisheries dispute, operated to increase
his disinclination to go to London, which
arose (as we stated some time since) from
his desire to remain at home on various
The Republic severely reprehends the
policy of removing California Indian i
tribes to New Mexico, and argues at
length to show that it is destined to prove
as unfortunate for the whites and Indians
of that Territory, as for the removed sav
ages themselves.
The Clipjricr argues against the election
of the judiciary by the people, contending
that they can be better and more safely
selected by any other mode in vogue.
The same paper draws from the last ac
tion of the Legislature of Pennsylvania

the opinion that ere long that measure

on yesterday in Cabinet couiioil after the Star
was " made up'' for the press, has not been
amiably received by the partisans of the
various ancient leaders of the Democracy now
in Washington. These gentlemen and their
friends elsewhere will make a great hubbub
over it doubtless. Mr. D., in almost all things,
has been a "Young American" after the
fashion of Mr. George Saunders of the late
Democratic Review. That is, pen in hand ho
has cut and slashed among the " Old Fogies"
of'the party," opening gaping wounds semi
weekly in their self-love, and knocking into

through their elevation, entertained by their

the character of a successful diplomatist
evenness of temper and discretion. Yet,
for the lifo of ui, wo cannot see how

could have refused to provide for Mr. D. Hi*
friends formed a wing of ' the party'' in the
last Presidontial oleotion which did quite as
much to bring about the overwhelming tri

ninety-five of thair applications out of every
hundred, finally, it is said around Wash
ington, they concentrated their efforts in favor
of Mr. Daniel*, who, in their behalf, had earn
ed anything but the love of ail thtt rest of the
party. To refuse them his appointment, un
der such circumstaboos, would have beeu to
have Violated grossly the principle of treating
all the wings alike,?of knowing no distinc
tion among them in the distribution of their
patronage, which tho present Administration
have so often proclaimed to bo thiir policy.
These arc plain views, which have suggested
themselves to us on scanning what seems ti be
going on here; yet wo havo every confidence
in their correctness.

and yet graceful chamber in tho style of its
ornaments in the United Statoa, we take it.
An impression that it is not yet properly ven

tho heat is well nigh suffocating upon those
who go up into the highest range of its alcoves.
Wo presume that tho architect will speedily
remedy this temporary defect.

What will Congress do with this surplus 1?
Will it not be a very banc to tho real interests
