SPIRIT OF THE XO&imre PRESS The Intelligencer devotes its editorial j column to an interesting account of the < late dinner to Lord Elgin, in London, at < which Mr. Buchanan was a 44 bright, par- 1 ticular star." 1 The Union moralizes over the couipar ativt financial credit of the United States, , Spain, and other European Governments, and rejoices over the gallant defence of 1 44 the principle" involved in the Nebraska bill made by the New Hampshire Patriot, ! and other sympathising journals in that ] State. The Sentinel replies to the Union's very 1 last on military superintendency of civil 1 works, in three mortal columns. Western Democratic Review.?We 1 are in the receipt of the April number of the "Western Democratic Review," pub- ' lished at Indianopolis, Indiana, by Geo. P. Buell, which is embellished by a well executed steel engraving of Hon. Andrew 1 Johnson, of Tennessee, and contains a large amount of interesting matter.

The opinions and facts published in the Star ?' indicate the manner in which the Adminis tration is trimming its sails" about as much as the twaddle of the garrulous old Abolition is* of the Democrat, or the malignant false hoods of the Herald. We speak for ourselves and would condemn the Adminis' ration for doing wrong as soon as applaud it for doing ri?ht.

WASHDTOTO* RVI AMD 9088IP. Bennett on Webb.?Bennett of the Ifefmld, is throwing hot shot into Webb of the Courier and Enquirer, accusing hun of being a tort of secret diplomatic agent of the Pieree Admin istration, engaged in bringing the English Ministry to the point of acknowledging the soundness of American view* of the rights of neutrals, Ac. The truth is, both Webb, and diplomacy, are weak Ttoints with Bennett. IIo cannot think of the one, without having visions | of the other rush thick and fast upon his mind's eye, which is proverbially as distorted as that remarkable gfaublet eye (physical) of his. It will be recollected that be supported Taylor j for a time. That is, nnfitTaytor refused him I the Char get hip to Austria' The fact of his application for that mission, shortly after the election of 1848, is well known to many of the confidants of the Taylor Administration. All the world know how he tried to earn the Austria Chargesbip on that occasion. Ho fought faith fully for Taylor throughout the canvass, ami claimed, of eoune, at its close, that he had sleeted the hero of Buena Vista! Up to the moment that Taylor rejected his application irith acorn, appointing Webb instead of him. there was no better Taylor man in the land &an James Gordon Bennett. Scouted ont of | ill respectable society on this side of the At lantic, be had set his heart on making a social position for himself somewhtre in the civilized irorld, and essayed to induce General Taylor j 10 aid him to make it in Europe, whither it iras then his purpose to retire on his ill-gotten r^ins. It will be recollected that he has not a tingle tie in this country. He married a for eign lady, and has neither relative nor personal riend among Americans, though so long a so ourner in New York. Though he has made nueh money, he professes not to own six pence vorth of property in the United States, of any Inscription, as some of those who in the course 4 business have obtained judgments against lim are, unfortunately, well aware. That sort f huni-fuggling can always be done by the id of perjury. It will be seen from what wc rrite above, that his affairs have long been in , proper condition to enable him at any mo nent conveniently to quit a country, of which, ip to this time, he has failed to beco me a nat iralized citizen. On Webb's appointment, he instantly be ame bitterly hogtile to the Taylor adminis ration, while his old hostility to his suc essful rival for that mission was redoubled Cnat hostility arose from the fact that Webb, taving caught him selling the columns of the Jourier and Enquirer when connected with hat journal, unceremoniously kicked him out if the ooncern, as he was previously ejected rom the Pennsylvanian for the same cause iver since his disappointment through Webb's appointment to Vienna, he has pursued him rith undying virulence. Still hoping in the nd to get an endorsement from the American iovernment, on which to retire to his old Eu opean associations, he turned, instantly, a laming supporter of the policy of the Demo ratic party, to that end. Thus, he labored to ilect Pierce; and applied for the French nission again, hoping at least to get the Aus rian chargeship, and again claiming that he tad elected the man from whom he asked >lace. Again he found that be had to deal rith a Cbief Magistrate who cculd not be irought to insult gentlemen hoiding diplo natio positions under the Government of the Jnited Stites, by placing among thorn an in lividual of such personal standing, as that, by ommon consent, all respectable people in few York refused to sit within striking dis ance of him at hetel tables, or to occupy )oxes at the opera in the vicinity of tho < r.e n which he presumed to sLo-v himself. Feeling very sure, however, on this oica on hat he had bagged his game, he started ? arty or the Continent, to prepare himself for the leremonieus discharge if the duties <f ai American Foreign Minister. His ridutjloj-i lire and antics while so engaged at W esba len are familiar to all American readers. ng rendered him the butt of all the wags ol Surope, as well as in this country. It was tad enough to refuse him the mission he ap >lied for, but as the refusal of Pierce was con lected with the exposure of his shallow flun Eeyism and impertinence while studying -ii >lomaey on the Continent, his hatred to P. is f eourse undying; and is being manifested in laily tirades of personal blackguardism, sc ow that all who read them, recognise at a ;lance that no one clothed with the panoply >f American citizenship could possibly have >enned them. Boasting that he (!) destroyed lie Taylor Administration, he sets himself up. ivowedly, for a destroyer of the present Ad ninistration' He promised his readers its innihilation when the House printer vra; ilected. Behold the result ! Again, he pro slaimed that he was about to break up the Cabinet, root and branch, in the decision upon he nomination of Bronson's successor. 01 ourse, he accomplished his end on that occa ion, (over the left.) Still, again, he was to mash them all to little pieces on Forney's lection; and, subsequently, on the question* f making the places of Assistant Secretary f the Treasury, and of Librarian to the House lective! But we need follow the didoes cu >y this mountebank no further. He promises ls wonderful things on this side of the Atlan ic, as when essaying to obtain the position <f i gentleman at Wiesbaden; and with precise'} limilar results. As the fame of his personal standing in the [Jnited States has at last made Europe too ho o hold him, (in the company of people oi tharacter and standing,) he is forced to remai. lere to fight out another presidential cam paign, in the hope that he may yet succeed ii. uducing (for services rendered with the Ila - tId) his appointment to a mission, which wiii jive him a position in which he can go abroai >ermanently, without being troated by all Ue ent people in Europe, as by the guests at tin Vstor House, and the subscribers to the Aster ?lace Opera. This is the key to the present :ourse of the Herald. Saturday's Work for Members of Congreu Saturdays, when the Houses of Congress nie not in session, are by no means leisure day srith members. They one and all spend them in the different departments, transacting busi aess of individual constituents, sent to them or "inking investigations designed to cnabl them to act understanding^ upon variou measures on which they are to decide. By-the by, there prevails in almost all the Depart ments here a regulation preventing any ont aot connected with the particular office or bu reau from going into any subordinant officialV roem to transact business, or examine papers This rule prescribes that any one wanting in formation, to inspect a record, or any thing ot the kind, must apply to the head of the bureau, or his chief clerk, to that end, who sends to the particular subordinate for the papers, work, information, or whatever may be wanted. This u the rule as prevailing in ihe Post Office Department, against which the Hon. Mr. Grey, of Kentucky, has more than once complained in the House hall of late. His idea is, that i' should not be enforced against members ot Congress, and more especially against mem bers of committees particularly charged with business in connexion with the departments It seems to us that Mr. G. has hardly reflecteo seriously on the confusion-producing tendeniv of his proposition to have this rale abrogated by special act of Congress. There are three fctaifed Senators and Representatives, at least two thirds of whom, were for hours prosecuting separata inquiries in the departments to-day. If they enjoyed the right to go into the room of any clerk, pull and haul his books and records about to suit themselves, and to occupy as many clerks as each might fancy, exclusively, pre cious little work would have been done ia the departments on this precious day of our Lord. It would require three days work of all hands to correct the confusion thus engendered. The bead of a bureau, or his chief clerk can com pass the transaction of any burners required by & member, by a few directions to'some one jf his subordinates in a tentli of the time that would be necessary. were the member to essay the work of making his own investigations in ei department. Common sense teaches the wisdom of this very general departmental reg ulation. Now Foreign Consuls in thg United States The President has acknowledged Mark J. Mimge, as consul from Belgium, at Philadel phia. Henry W. Male, as consul for the same jower, at New York. A. Piaget, of New Orleans, as Swiss consul or Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas ind Mississippi. John E. Sohuetze.. as Danish oonsul at St. Louis. How Shall it be Accounted For The arti ile in yesterday morning's Sentinel berating he Administration after its old fashion, has >een the subject of much conversation among he politicians of Congress, it being in its tone lirectly the reverso of what that journal has >een putting forth for some month or two >ast. We have heard it accounted for in va rious ways. Some insist that it is designed to nduce the President to virtually instruct the superintendent of the Public Printing to ihange his rulings on two or three points, rherein they are thought^ to have had the sffect of directing more of the Public Print ng into the Union office than the Senate Printer thinks rights, in view of bis own elation to that work. Others conceivc hat the onslaught was made in compliance nth the determination of two or three gen lemen in public life, who are very famous for levotion to tho fortunes of the Sentinel and ts senior publisher, to get up an opposition n the bosom of the Democratic party?the lards having long since evacuated their posi ion in the party?without so exposing their lands, as to enable the fierce Democracy at iome to hold them responsible for the mea ures they are supposed to be taking to that snd. Now, there aro a few facts within our know edge connected with current affairs here, vhich may possibly throw some light on this loisting of its original colors by the Sentinel. They are, first, that vory shortly the House nuRt consider and dispose of the recommen lation of the Committee of Ways and Means igainst concurring in the Senate's amendment o the Deficiency bill, so changing the Public Printing law as to securc, beyond peradven ule, to the Senate printer, the execution of ill the printing that body may order. Second. That W higs of both Houses have, >f late, complained very bitterly, that in ceas ng, fur some time past, to thrust tho knife into he Administration's back on evory favorable ipportnnity, the Sentinel was not playing the jame, to secure and ensure which they had tided directly and indirectly its publisher's lection to be Senate printer. These gentle-1 uen are the open enemies of the Democratic >arty, and are justified from their position, in ising the Sentinel to break down the ascen lency of the Democratic party, if possible. Third. They are not only dissatisfied with he Sentinel's recent failure to st.ib the Ad- I ministration, but we know that some of them lave taken occasion to proclaim that on ac ;ount of this recent course of the Sen tine', it J nust not expect their support When the que? ion on this Deficiency bill amendment comes jefore the House. j The inquiring reader has, above, all the acts bearing on the subject matter within our ?each to-day. Appointment and Confirmation.?Thomas i. English, of Missouri, who was appointed Register of tho Land Office at Jackson, Mo., >y the President, vice Samuel A Hill, de based, had been confirmed by the Senate. ! Mr. McBougall's California Mail Bill come learer meeting the evident views of the House, lpon the subject of an increase of mail facili- I ies between California and tho Atlantic States. I Lan any other project, su far agitated in either jranch of Congress. This fact is apparent iii he unanimity with which tho House yesterday nade it a special order fcr tho first Monday in June next. It simply proposes to authorize I ;he Postmaster General to make the mails be wcen California, week'iy (instead of semi-1 nonthly, as at present.) by advertising for bid-1 or another som-month)/ transportation of hem in such time as he may judge best, and >y any route the successful bidders may select, he price to be paid not to excced ?250,000 per mnum; the contract to last not more than four rears, and to be given out under ordinary in-1 ind post office regulations, except that the government are to have the right to discon-1 inuo it on three months notice. Of course the owest responsible bid* for the service to be performed in the shortest (stipulated) time, I vill obtain the contract under the proposed lew law. Wo have often expressed the con ,'iction that the time had arrived when a weekly nail to and from California is an absolute public necessity. Tho contracts of this measure ir something based on its principles will prove he entering wedge for doing away with the present special favors ocean mail steamer system, which has worked and continues to work incalculable mischiefs for tho govern ment interests. "Ordnance Men" aro to Contribute Hospital Money.?In reeen ly deciding a question in the Treasury Department, it was held that the jet of March .1, 1831. being somewhat similai in its purposes of relief to that of July 10 1818, granting pensions to ordnance men dis abled in the line of heir duty, is by parity of reasoning, applici'ule to, and embraces men enlisted for the ordnance department. Thej are therefore to contribute the twenty cent oer month to the Military Asylum, in the same manner with enlisted men belonging to other jorps of tho Army. Post Cffi.ce Appointment*.?The following Post Office appointments have been made : Pierce <i. Wright, at Belle River, St. Clair County, Michigan.

Quite an interesting correspondence between the resigned members of our City Councils und some of our citizens is published in our town papers this morning, in rotation to the various matter*of town politics which have been in agitation for several months. The object of the interrogatories put to the resigned mem bers appears to bo to draw from them a fur ther expression of opinion in relation to cer tain charter reforms?questions which we thought were well understood and agreed upon by all. We thought that the resolution 0i Mr 1 lCKereli, heretofore noticed by us, and the address of the resigned members, had put these questions forever at rest. But it appears that in this opinion we were mistaken. Wo think, however, that the plain and positive answers contained in the published letters of this morn ing will be sufficient to satisfy the most skep tical. As we hinted some days since, the old and only issue at the last special election, viz: the question of taxaiion, has boon entirely abandoned (if we understand the correspon dence of this morning, and the Forrest Hall resolutions of last \\ ednesdav night) by the opponents of tho 75 cent special tax, and that it will hereafter meet with no further opposi tion cither in the Councils or elsewhere So this question whioh has been the chief and almost only source of all the excitement which we have parsed through, has been brought to an amicable and permanent settlement. We saw this morning, at the store of Messrs. \\ aters A Shoemaker, 0n Water street, some rrench Brandy, which was purchased of Mr. ?jchwar's, which the latter gentleman has had m his collar twenty-nine years How old it is no one can tell, as it was first purchased for old brandy. One thing we can say about it 'Wj flavor is peculiarly tempting. The cask which contains it is a perfect curiosity in itselt. * Our canal thi-i morning presents a sight truly cheering; all along through our town, for a space of more than half a mile, is complete ly lined with boats, laden with coal, flour, Ac., of fkem are from Cumberland, bringing over 3o00 tons of coal. It is supposed that the receipts fir r tolls at the Georgetown office next week, will amount to $3,000. The steamer George Washington has just left our wharf, with a lage company of gentlemen, members of Congress, and others, bound down the river on a pleasure excursion or shad feast. Of course they took on board no bricks. E. S. Wright, auctioneer, sold yesterday at public sale, brick house and lot on Bridge street, for ?2.000. This property, if we mistake not, was offered some few years ago, at $1,200 showing an advance in value over 100 per cent' Purchaser, Mr. Overton C. Warner. Flour and grain market?sales yesterday, after the Northern nows, as published in the ?star, of H00 to 1000 bbls. flour at $8. at which price it is firm this morning. Wheat?$1 70 tor white, and !*l 65 for red. No corn offering. A meeting of a number of gentlemen of our city is to beld next week, for the purpose of establishing a reading room and library. Par ticulars hereafter. Spectator. BALTQtO&E GOK&ESPOffDEHGI. Baltimore, April 21?10 r. u. Amongst the distinguished visitors who have arrived in our city, is my friend General Lumsden, of the New Orleans Picayune. lie looks well and is in fine spirits. He was a delegate to the Southern Convention at ?a? Charleston, and is en route North on a tonr of sbcerration. Miss Kimborly appeared at Charles street Theatre to-night as Pauline in the Ladj of Lyons. She bad a very full and highly fatb ionable audience. It is pleaaing to obfltrve that thia young and accomplished Ameriean actress rapidly grows in favcw. Her imper sonation? of Famine fall as little short of Bnl veer's ideal, perhaps, as any one who has ever delineated that character. She is exquisit.? Your citizens will have an opportunity of teeing her soon at Itisley's Variete. Amongst tho superb restaurants recently opened in onr eity, ia that of Mrs. Howell, in South street. She seems to attract largely. The Gennania give another concert hero to night. They are always well patronised ia Baltimore, and decided favorites. In point of uniqueness, and really scientific entertain ments, even the great Jullien cannot surpass them. Quite a curiosity has been excited to know who tho lady is in private life, who designs appearing soon before thto public as a vocalist. Iler card will appear next week in tho daily papers, when very many will recognise her name as an old acquaintance. She will have a large audience, no doubt. The personal estate of the late Jacob Albert. Esq., is now estimated at one and a half mil lion of dollars, of which, $1,400,000 is in Bank stock, and $?0,000 on deposit. The Patriot pays: ' It will be recollected that about four weeks since, two swindlers, calling themselves George and Charles Went worth, stopped in this city, and represented themselves as being connected with, and agents for, Ella Wentworth's Literary Journal, and through their surbordinate agents, in tho per sons of two young ladies (!) they obtained some five hundred subscriptions in advance on repre senting that there was to be a publication office here?further they negotiated with some parties for an office, and with others to attend to the correspondence of said office. The time having expired when another number of the Journal should be forthcoming has led to sotne enquiries, consequently to the arrest of the parties so representing themselves, and proved that their names were George and Chatles Weeks, and those who have subscribed for Ella Wentworth's Litterary Joura*l, and paid their dollar in B*kimore, may console them selves that they have some eighteen thousand who have done the same, to keep them com pany." Contrary to expectations, breadstufiig have not actually declined under the recent Euro pean news To-day prices rallied, and on late change some 3000 bbls. Howard street brand* sold at $8.

On Wednesday last, Mr. James Parker, re siding about three miles from Hampton, took a revolver and shot his wife through the bead, killing her instantly. He then went out and shot his horse, killing him also. After going back in the hou^e he shot himself?thus in a few moments depriving five small children of both father and mother. Parker had been partially insane for some time, but was oon sidered harmles?. About six weeks ago he was examined and kept confined for a short time, but he appeared to be rational again, and was allowed to go home, when he committed the dreadful acts above named. C. H. W. [CP* At San Francisco recently, a Chi nese woman who owed some money which she was unable to pay, was required by her creditor, in accordance with a Chi nese custom, to take poison in order to 44 show her sense of the debt." She ac cordingly swallowed a dose of opium, and would have died had not a policeman learned the circumstance, and obliged her to take an antidote. XT In New York, an action of assump sit against James Collyer, torecoverfrom him a balance of certain sums of money which came into his hands as Collector of the port of San Francisco, was set down for Monday next. Senator Dickinson and Mr. A. Collyer, who were in court, will defend the action, and the United States District Attorney prosecutes for the Gov ernment.
