DAILY EVENING STAR.
WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNE8DAY AFTERVOON, OCTOBER 15. ryT?in*nrc the in?rrtion of Arirrr liirnirnu ?he> iuaM be brought lo our counting-room before 12 oVIork HI., othcrni^r ibcj may not appear nnlil the next day, ? ?? - / < Mir subscribers on the Island, east ?f ~th street, have failed to get their pa pers on account of the indisposition of the carrier. All will be right in a day or two. [T7*^>me time since we sent copies of our paper containing the prospectus of our weekly to a uinnber of weekly jour nals requesting them to copy it, for which they would f>e allowed an exchange with our daily paper for one year, which was only intended for the papers which we addressed. Of late, we find papers we never heard of before copying our pros pectus and demanding an exchange. As our exchange list is already as large as we desire, we shall consider ourselves under no obligation to exchange with any paper copying our prospectus after this date. Spirit of the Morning Press. The Intelligencer of this morning is favored by Colonel Benton with extended information concerning the labors and re sults of Lt. Beale's party of exploration, for a Pacific Railroad route, the sum and substance of which we gave iu our Wash ington news column yesterday. Some columns of that journal are also devoted to extended extracts from a forthcoming f-ketch-book from the talented Charles J.anman. late of the State Department. The Union discusses the results of the first six months of the labors of the pres ent administration, arguing from the result of the elections, so far held, that they have emphatically met the approba tion of the country. The same journal discusses the Captain Gibson affair, ex plaining the circumstances under which it became Secretary Marcy's duty to en quire strictly into his private character to ascertain how far his personal repre sentations were worthy of credence, and presenting a letter from the Captain him self, showing that the Secretary has done everything to obtain for him the repara tion fro:a Holland, to which he feels him self entitled. The Se.itinel continues to fight the soft wing of" the party" in New York: con tending that the position of the Hon. 1 'aniel S. Dickinson and his friends to wards Messrs. Grover, Cochrane and Fowler and their friends, is identical with that held by Pierce towards John Atwood and his compatriots in New Hampshire, and for identical causes. The editor for gets to call his reader's attention to the fact that while Atwood ?Sr Co., persevered to the last in denouncing the Baltimore platform and refusing to acquiesce in the tugitiveslave law, Cochrane & Cos course has l>cen just the reverse, as they have gone quite as far as the hards of late, in pledging themselves to the doctrines for which the latter contendas now being the KeyStone of the faith of the Democrats. The Sentinel contains a letter from the Hon. Jefferson Davis, the publication of which is made necessary by the editor's intimation on Saturday last, that the Hon. Set retarv hau taken strong grounds against the present cause of those who went for Van Buren in 1S4S. We cor i ected that mistake iu a short paragraph published at the time, and find this let ter bearing us out completely. We ex tract from this letter from the pen of Gen eral Davis (which was originally addressed to a friend without thought of its publi cation) sufficient to show its entire pur l*?ri. Thus, writing under date of the ??th instant, in refutation of a sill v ?harge in the New York Herald, that he was aiding and abetting the " free soilism." of Preston King and John Van Buren, the Secretary savs: I 'e-ved with tho first named gentleman Congress, and on the slavery question ; we were the antipodes of each other. Of hi* sub sequent course and present portion I am not iniormed. The second name,! gentleman is known to me personally only by private inter course ; his position, as shown by the publi cations of the day, has been very objectionable to me. but now is in accordance with the cen tral amnesty declared in the Baltimore con tention, and ratified by the presidential can vass of lsi2. I received the proposition to unite on the platform declared by the demo crn*ic party in general convention as a settle ment of past feuds, and have been readv to co-operate with all who. adhering faithfully to the principles and poli.-y then declared are Willing t.> go With uit in the onward march of democracy. ?? It would have heen hollow and dishonora ble to have allied with men upon that basis and when the campaign *.r;is over to have <uirun?ned them to answer for their '-by gone" opinions. So far was this from any 1 _urpuse or policy of mine, that I had forgotten, i iimeed I rver knew, the contents of speeches and letters which have recently been brought o light, and present men in whom I had en ire confidence as having beon, a very few ^ ears ago. the advocates ot f reosoilism " ' ^withstanding the significant mark of confidence given to Mr. Dickinson, when he wa.s offered the best financial and political appointment in the State of New York I have not. and will n<,'. a;?pro>e the anti-slavery sp.-ev.ica he made in 1H47 and 1849 \nd although Judge Kron?on holds the hich post which tiovernor Dickinson declined. I trust I eh ill not be numbered among those who sub scribe to his letter of July 15. lsts. ??? the meeting to ratify the nomination of Martin Van Iiuren, and contribute to the extension of freesoii. I am willing in these, a? in other ca.<es, to drop the inquiry into by-gone opin ion and associations, to adhero to the com pact of 1852. to oppose disorganization, to resist agitation, and to promote the harmony of the democratic party, as the best means of securing peace among the States and pros perity and perpetuity to the Union. Now, this is not to approve objectionable antece dents, not to endorse the opinions at war with my creed, but to act as bccomes those w?o believe the union of the democracy to hair? been sincerely, honestly, and substantially made for public and not personal ends. * ? * * * * " Very truly, your friend. '? JEFFERSON DAVIS." The Clipper is down on Secretary Guthrie for his late letter to Collector Bronson. The Era is very indignant against Sec retary McClelland, for his recent letter to Marshal TVynkoop, directing him to go ahead in the matter of expending every dollar necessary to defend his subordinates against the suits in the State Courts levelled at those of them who recentl} attempted in vain to arrest a fugitive slave of a citizen of Fauquier count}', Ya. The editor declares that the Secretary never was an abolitionist, and that no sensible man would have expected him to do, in such a case, anything but what he has done. d^T-'TfiE Popular Educator," publish ed by Alexander Montgomer}r, 17 Spruce street, New York, is decidedly the mo^t instructive publication of the day. Our young men who have not had the advan tages of education in their youVh could not do better than to subscribe for this work. It is published in numbers at 25 cents each. The same publisher has sent us the " Illustrated Magazine of Artthe best j pictorial of the day. [CT^'Walkkr & Co's Hair Tonic," ad vertised in to-day's Star, is one of the best articles for cleansing the head and pro moting the growth of the hair now in use. We have tried it and found it excel lent. MULTUM IN PARVO. The militia are to be made to turn out in strong force this Fall in New York city. A strict search is made everywhere for unfor tunate delinquents. Seveuty-five cents will settle the matter, but neglectful souls must settle the penalty. It is said that Gen. Scott was warned out, among the rest, under the style of-'W. Scott," residing in Twelfth street. Some of the papers of South Carolina, are opposed to the election of Col. Orr, to the Speakership of the House of Representatives of the next Congress, upon the ground that no one from South Carolina, should aspire af ter Federal honors. A Galena paper gives an account of a vein of leid ore. along the bank of the Mississippi river, below Prairie du Chien, which is one and a half miles loug. No fear of our ammu nition being expended in the next war. The escape of John Mitchell and John Mar tin from Australia, is confirmed, and they have so written to their friends in New York, where Mitchcll has a mother, two sisters and a brother, nil of them most estimable people. The tavern keepers of Philadelphia, like those of New York, are about to raise the price of brandy to 1 (I cente a glas?. Late adviccs from Bermuda report that the yellow fever, lately so fatal there, has nearly disappeared. The Debut* states that thore arc .'50.000 po litical prisoners in the Papal dominions ' Lemons and arrow root arc now cultivated in South Florida, and sent to Southern r.nr kots. Fanny Fern's book, published by Derby JL Miller, Auburn. N. Y., has run through an edition of-10,000 copies, and the demand has not ceased. The emigration of Chinese to California, that has been suspended for some time past, has been resumed again. Within a few days before the sailing of the steamer 4;><) had ar rived in San Francisco, among them 24 fe males, whom the Chinese have hitlurto pre vented from coming. The use of wood and coal is to be done away with, a method having been discovered of warming houses by burning gas. the same now used for light. Col.

She will have afloat, before a year, iU ships of the line and as muny frigates of which 15 are of the first class, and most of them fitted with crews. The C; tholic clergyman at |North Bridge* port, Conn enjoins that none of his people shall bail,a rumseller. Snow, accompanied by hail, fell in Syra cuse. New York, on Monday afternoon. Ac cording to the weather-wise this early appear ance of snow is indicative of a severe winter. The Health Officer of Philadelphia announ ces three cases of yellow fever there during the week. The deaths from all diseases amounted to 20o. The Cincinnati Culrmhim) says: Ourstreets are being illuminated with a pondrous concern known as a floating a Ivertising wagon; it is above two stories high, and is illustrated with any quantity of posters, programmes and handbills, and of course is attracting great attention. On one of the branches of the Colorado, in ! Texas, falls have been discovered about 120 feet in altitude, and nearly 100 feet wide.? The water falls perpendicularly in one nn j broken sheet. These falls were discovered by i Mr. William H Magill. who i- nn old settler ! *,J 'his State, and never heard of them before. | Deeply were we affected on reading, the other day. of a young lady, who, being told that her lover was instantly killed, exclaimed: '? 0 that splendid gold watch of his ! give mo something to remember him by !,T Washington Newa and Goaaip. The Speakership continues to be the lead ing subject of conversation in public places of the Federal city, increasing in interest dailv. as it were, as the eventful election time approaches. We are constantly hearing of the entrance of new competitors for the priic into "the ring." Among them, we find the names of half a dozen gentlemen utterly un known to to the country in connection with the National Legislature. That is, they are entirely new members. The idea of putting a gentleman, who baa never before teen in fongrcss, in that position, is amusing, indeed; illustrating, by-the-hy, tha "locality" pro pensity of small-beer politicianr, that class being the men who put forward their respec tive neighborhood's favorite, utterly unin itiated in the business o? legislative attorney ship, as though be tVie very best man to be named for the second office in the gift of the American people. The Hon. Lin Boyd will, of course, be a candidate for r ?.election, and will, on the first ballot, doubtless, poll more votes in caucus than any of Jer gentleman. His high persona^ character, great Congressional experience, and the prestige of bis reccnt service in the positio ^ wiii insure him such a start ahead of his competitors in the race. His selection of co' jimittees, however, was considered unfortu 'jJit-e in many respects. However, wo do not see that he thus gave greater offence than either of his predecessors in the Chair. Out of the two hundred and tliirty-ono members, not more than twenty can be mado chairmen of important committees; while it is rare, in deed, to find a member who does not long to be placed in a position thus perspicuous bo fore his constituents and the country. A large majority being thus disappointed, thoy are naturally prone to remember the hand which has offended them. So, we anticipate that in tho coming contest a doren or two activc gen tlemen will essay to pay off to Mr. Boyd, each his old score for his disappointment in the construction of the House committees for the last two sessions. This element in the contest will, we apprehend, greatly weaken his pros pect of eventual success. Were his talented young colleague, Mr. Breckinridge, really a competitor with him for the position, the fact would further greatly weaken his prospect for re-election to the Chair. But we take it for granted that all finding its way in the news papers, urging his election to the position, gets there without his knowledge and consent. As, independent of his very commendable modesty, he is hardly the man to permit th? use of his name so as to interlere with his friend and mentor's prospect, no can well afford to wait, and learn by patient expe rience in the body of the hall to properly dis charge the duties of the Chair, to which he is destined to be called in time, if he remains long in Congress. For his age and service in the hall, he is, doubtless, capitally qualified for the Speakership; possessing quit? as much ??presence," general attainments and judg- I rnent, as well as being quite as eloquent and i effective in debate, as any member we ever knew who had been in public life but a single Congress, llis relations with Mr. Boyd, how ever. wo think, will settle the question, that he will not, willingly, be a candidate against him. While George W. Jones, of Tennessee, will, doubtless, continue to be the Democratic leader in all businoss issues, we shall by no means be surprised to find Mr. Breckinridge regarded as the political leader of the Admin istration on the floor; for his discretion, which is proverbial, renders him a man eminently to be trusted to do or ?ay no unfortunate thing in the most exci'ed scene to be witnessed in the hall. List ok Patexts issued from the Lnited States Patent Office for the week ending Oct. 1.1, 1851, each bearing that date : Cornelius R. Brinckenhoff, of Batavia, N. Y.?For improvement in plows.

The Expected Brosson Letter.?Wo are satisfied that the Secretary of the Treasury has not j-et received the letter from Collector Bronson, which the New York Herald and National Democrat say he has recently been engaged iu writing, in reply to his (>lr. Guth rie's) now famous circular, defining the posi tion of the Administration on the difficulties in the party in New York. Another Habeas Corpps Case.?In the case of the discharge of Benj. Bagnal, who was lately arrested in Wisconsin on a United States warrant from tho Distiict Court for Michigan (charged with unlawfully cutting timber on Government lands.) tho Govern ment here instructed the Marshal for Michi gan to re-arrest him on another warrant, as though tho State Court of Wisconsin had not stepped forward to prevent his being tried for his offence, by granting him a discharge under a writ of habeas rorpnHe has accordingly been re-arrested in Wisconsin, from whence he wm promptly returned within the jurisdic tion of the court issuing the warrant for his capture. Twenty to one. Mr. Ex-Collector Collier will in the end be thus compelled to face the music in California; Judge Jewett, of the Ohio State Court, to the contrary not withstanding. An Important Mistake.?In recently print ing the notices of the Secretary of the Trea sury, making offers for the redemption of stocks, by some accident we gave them wrong dates. They should have borne their original dates of July 30th and August 22d last, when they were respectively issued, and not tho dates of their rcceut republication. This cor rection becomes necessary, in viow of the fact that, otherwise, they might lead to the im pression that the Secretary designed to make a new notico, inviting the return of other stocks; which was not intended. '? Death of a Naval Surgeon.?The Navy Department have advices of the death of Dr. DuBarry, one of the ser.ior surgeons of the service. He was last fleet surgeon of the East India squadron. Not long since he essayed to return to the I'nited States (from tho steam frigato Susquehanna) on " siek ticket," taking passage on a merchant ship. When about a month out, on the way, he died.

By the President: W. L. Marcy, S.-cretarv of State. TEXAS BOUDS AGAIN. What may the reason f->r the hostility of the Editor of the f-'t-ir to GtTcrnor Hamilton. CHnnot l-e I imagined?but that has nothing to do with the fuet? ; of the case, whi< h th** Editor seems still to contro | vert, and especially that Gor?raor Hamilton mad.-' advances to assist Texts in her nerd. In reply to this it is sufficient to refer (from memory, t to a few ? items of the r.u lited account*. The first smell item i was for Governor Hvmilton's ad ranees for purchasing the steamship Zavala. The si-cond small item w:\s for his advances for equipping the steamship Zavala. These, together with a few other such small items, ' soon formed <i e.mtideraUt rum. to which may Ke added the items referred to in my Inst- of Govetnor I Hamilton's supporting during bis stay in Europe the minivers of Texas to tl;c courts recognirlng her in 1 dependence. In the nest place, it is of courv>. ofcri miitbat Governor Ilsmilton repre*nts all the in f terests and institutx.ns enumerated iu his memorial which I sent yon. (besides many more that can lie i furnished,) in which h? has no interest of hiarwn ; if lh" sentence w-?s written otherwise. It was an obvi ous error, and should (of course) hare read: "though Governor Hamilton does represent the creditor* of the institutions referred to?yet it is incorre< t that he take? the views imputed to him."' Jn the next place, I beg you to correct tie sentence in regard to the la'e ;? *sis ant Secretary : so far as any inference can lie drawn us \f> any unworthy motives. It was merely intended (written in great haste) to state that there were such c'aini5 amongst his frieii'1*. witfcout any improper in'^-ren^e. He is a gentleman for whom 1 entertain a hish es'c. m, and I did not ad ; rert, in the hwste of writing, to the effect of the sen I tence. which I now regret ami recall. In the next ! place, it was no where asserted by me that Governor Hamilton never charg<*d 1<> per c?tit for m rrt'stit f j loans for Texn? The words used were?" He passed \ years in Enrol**, at great expense. ?.nd with most persevering efforts in obtnir ing (as her niinist'-r i plenipotentiary) the aoknowliiiiement of her inde j endeuce, and he even support**!, for a tine, h'-r ministers at his own ex|**nse. and lies l>e<*ii allow, d j nothing for .'Aw services."
