_DArLY E VENING STAR.
WASHINGTON CITY: FRIDAY AFTERWOOW, MAT 3 * 0"ALL KINDS OF JOB PRINTING NEATLY AND EXPEDITIOUSLY EX ECUTED AT THE EVENING STAR OFFICE. SPIWT OP THE VOSimre PBES8. The Union comments upon the Veto Message, pronouncing it the "document of all documents" for the tim?. The Union, farther referring to a paragraph from the New York Tribune, exposing the dangerous tendency of mob law, says: ' it not with mora propriety be sugges ted that the disgraceful riota described is the foregoing paragraph are the first fruits of the loatigation to mob law furniahed by the pas aicnate assaultsof sue h jramliai theTribane upon the action of the court, counsel, and jury, la the late Ward case ? We cherish the free dom of the press as one of our dearest rights; nor do we regard any functionary or tribunal as having a claim to exemption from acrntiny *?d oeniure: but we can never overlook the feet, that when the legitimate freedom of the pre^a degenerates into licentiousness, the friends of law and order have cause for alarm. Without expressing any opinion upon the ver dict rendered in the Ward case, we should not discharge our duties as a public j >omalist if we did not express our decided dissent from that spirit which denounces, in unmeaaured language of passion and ritupcration, the ac tion of the counsel and jury engaged in the trial. If the jury acted rashly in making up and rendering their verdict, their own eon ?eience will prove their severest reprovers.? A. offence is surely no greater than that of those who see to make It the inciting cause to the prevalence of violence and mob law No one oould reasonably object to a legitimate re view of the facts elicited on the trial, with the ?lew of showing that the verdict of acquittal was not in accordance with the proof and the law. tench an invesiigation and ruch stricture* are strictly legitimate, and to snch a course we take no exception-'' The Intelligencer, commenting on a recent article in the Union headed " Five Years of Fraud vs. one of Integrity," wherein charges are made against Ex Governor Ramsay, of Minnesota, quotes the report of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, wherein they entirely exculpate that gentleman's administra tion of the government of Minnesota, sav ing '? That thev have carefully examined all the testimony taken by the commissioner* during t?re(,i months which they were in session \ t Paul' in ,he Territory of Minnesota, and have amved at the conclusion that the conduct of Governor Ramsay was not only free from blame, but highly commendable and n.en:onous. Not one of the charges preferred against him has been sustained by the testi mony On the contrary, the witnesses of the complainants themselves, in almost every instance, have negatived them; proving, con clusively. that he neither violated the atipula i" of the treaties, as understood by the parties to them, nor was governed in his eon duct by motives other than such as entitle him to commendation both as a man and an officer 4'In the disbursement of the funds arising under the treafie? he acted in accordance wi'h the understanding between the commissioners who negotiated them, the Indians, and the traders tor whom provision had been made.? Toe payments of the moneys was made by Lim under the direction of and in strict accord ance with the views and instructions of the Cumm^sioner of Indian Affairs."' Continuing on the same subject, the Fntelhgencer very appropriately adds : "Another of the 'monster frauds' charged to Mr. Fillmore is that of the -Gardiner case," though it has been ineontestably proved that the moment the first rumor reached his ears that .uspiciwn attached to the claim, he inati tuted a searching inquiry, sent commissioners to Mexico, and ordered a proaecntion of the individual accused. It is notorious that the trial of that individual occupied the time of the Cr minal Court here more closely and la boriously than any case that had evey been brooght_ before it; that the first jury could not agree; that he was tried a second time, with the added testimony of a second commission of inquiry; and that, when the last jury brought in their verdict of guilty, the manoommiUed suicide.

WASHIHGTOH HEW3 AHD 008817. The Approaching Contact?The annonnca ment of Mr. Richardson, that en Monday he will move to take op in Committee of the Whole the Nebraska bill reported originally by him self from the Committee on Territories, has al ready caused the return of nsany absentees of the House. There ean be bo doubt that by Monday morning next, every such member who is able to travel will have arrived. The fuller the House, the surer the triumph of the measure. This is now the impression of all its friends. We know at least odc hundred and twenty who design voting for it in the shape of the Senate's bill, shorn of the Clayton amend ment, and will be very apt to combine to vote down every other proposition to amend it? come from what quarter it may. Among those to whom we refer above, there are no doubt ful gentlemen, of whom we think we cancoant at least ten, whose probable course on the bill is not yet settled in their own minds. Re nominations, Ac., are, in their esses, in tick lish conditions, and they are very anxious to ascertain in advance precisely how a vote for or against this measure, will be likely to cause their "cat" to "jump.'' No friend of the bill entertains the least idea of fixing any limit to the debato upon it, so long as members desire to deliver speeches for or against it. Indeed, we sh%U not be sur prised if its enactment be thus; delayed for perhaps a month after it shall have been for mally taken up in committee of the whole? though already some seventy or seventy-five speeches have been made upon it. The extraordinary efforts for the defeat of the bill, wbieh have characterized the labors of those assuming to lead the opposition to it, have gained it votes in the House of Repre sentatives. Every active and noted abolition ist in the land has hastened to throw himself into the front rank, claiming to lead the forces, and welcoming the few Southern gentlemen who have, oddly enough, managed to blunder into such company with outstretched arms and moat affectionate and elaborate compliments. Their eagerness to prove to the world that the future of abolitionism is wrapt up in the defeat of the bill, has had its due effect out of, as weil as in Washington. Thus, it has completely closed the ranks of "The Harmoneous" in In diana, where the Democratic unanimity in "the party,1 on the subject, is unparalleled. As far we can perceive, there is not an anti Nebraska-bill Democratic paper in the districts of Messrs. Mace and Harlan, of that State, though both those gentlemen are, so far. re garded as beifag opposed to the measure. Just now Messrs. Giddings, Benton, Gerrit Smith and others who assume to lead the op position, are cheating themselves into the be lief that they will be indirectly aided by a movement on the part of a veteran Democratic member from the West, who is believed to fancy the Utah bill most. The gentleman in question, besides being quite as little disposed as any member can he, to oarry out the pur poses of those parties, is too experienced to be caught in a trap, being proverbial for never being caught napping. We feel assured, there fore, that when he oomes to realize precisely who are anxious that he shall throw the friends of the measure into confusion by lending the weight of bis well deserved groat influence in the Hall, to defeat the measure which so large a majority of his friends desire, he will hardly be found available for them. The Veto in the Senate.?From th^^-t evidence within our reach we are inclined to believe that the vetoed bill, which passed the Senate by a two-thirds vote, when again votsd on?the question being on passing the measure over the President's veto?will hardly be aoie to muster more than a bare majority. T'tere were fifteen absentees when the bill pa'.-ed that body, a large maj irity of whom aro un derstood to be it* opponents. We have heard a Whig Senator and more than one Whig mem ber of the other House, all of whom voted for the bill, declare their approval of the Presi dent's action, most emphatically; on the ground that his reasons for refusing his signature have satisfied them that he is right and they were wrong upon it. These gentlemen come from north and south. Now, the existence of such opinions among the original supporters of the measure, will tell, of oourie. in bulb Houses whenever it may again be voted on. We consider this veto the death of each and every scheme for the use of the public domain, in any manner not designing to make the most of it for the Treasury of the United States. Extradition Question Disposed of?Not Ion sinee application was made from Indiana lor proceedings on the part of the Govornmeut at Washington to procure toe extradition of a person from Canada charged with larceny. The Secretary of State, under the advice of tic Attorney General, to whom all such questions of law are usually referred, is understood to have declined to demand the fugitive criminal on the ground that the Ashburton treaty makes no provision for the surrender of those charged with the crime of larceny. The Officers of the Sloop of War James town, just arrived at Philadelphia, from a three years' cruise on the coast of Brazil, ba\ t been detached, and have three months leave.

Coins.?There is evidently a strong disposition among the members of Congress, to carry out the recom mendations of the Secretary of the Treasury with reference to U. S. *100. 850, and $25 gold coins, to be called a Union, half Union, and quarter Union. Ere the elose of the sesei<>i the half Union bids fair to be ordered to be struck. The idea of the Secretary is a capital one, meeting, as it does, the pressing wants 0! the business community not only in California but throughout the country. Violation of the Pranking Privilege.? The following proclamation from the Post master General was crowded oat of our col auns yesterday by a press of copy. If all th< "free matter'* transported in the mails paio postage the Department's receipts would be some $2,000,094 per annum more than the? are?quite enough to nake up the now annual deficiency. This "order" strikes at an abuse which can hardly prevail hereafter under if. due enforcement: Post Office Dkpartkest. May 4, 1854. It having eouie to the knowledge of the De partment that large numbers of letters have lately passed through the mails under the lorged franks of members of Congress, uuo knowing that in many instances persons hav ing the franking privilege are, greatly to their annoyance, often requested to frank letter* and packets for others, merely to avoid th. payment of postsge, I deem it my duty to call particular attention to the following provis ions of the Act of 3d March, 1825, on this sub ject. vis: 44 Sec. 28. And bt it further tnacttd, That if any person shall frank any letter or letters, other than those written bv himself, or by his order, on the business of hN office, [extended by act of 1st Mareh. 1847, in the ca?e of the members of Congress and the Secretary of the Senate and Clerk of the House of Ucpreseu tentative*, to iodada ail latter* and packa^n gent aul received by them, not weighing over two bo (hall, on conviction thereof, pay a fin? ofr ten dollar*, and it ahsll be the esr.to.al datv of postmasters to pro-esute for *aid offeno*. * * * And if any person havirgtbe right to receive hia let'eia fieeof po-tage shall receive enclosed to hiua any ler- I ter or packet addressed to a person not having that right, il shall be his duty to return the siime to the post office. marking thereon the j place from wfience it came, that it may be charged with postage. And if any person shall counterf. it the handwriting or fnnk of any person, or cause the same to be done, in order to avoid the payment of postage, each j person so offending shall pay for every such oSVnce five hundred dollars.'; ~ ? Now, with a view to protect all pereonshav. ingthe franking privilege in the full enjoy ment of their legitimate rights in this respect, and to prevent the eomuiission cf these offences postmasters, special agents, and all others in the service of the Department are hereby in structed to render all proper aid in seeing that the intentions cf the law are faithfully carried out. Jam&s Campbell, Poatinusier General. The Pay of a Boatswain in Certain Cases. A case was recently decided at tho Treasury Department, which may be host stated as fol lows: The boatswain of a vessel of war having died while tha ship was on a foreign station, the commander of the squadron gave an acting apfiointtient to a seaman, who performed the ; duty, nnd whose acting appointment w*3 sub sequently approved by tho Secretary of the Navy. The act allowing " higher grade" pay for " higher grade" duty was repealed by the act of June 17, 1844; but it was held that he was lawfully in the grade of boatswain, not only by performing the duty, but also by com petent appointment, and that the laws forbid ding extra pay, of March 3, 1839, August 23 and 28, 1S12, and September 30,1850, were not applicable to such a case. The proviso to the act of August 4, 1842, restricting the num ber of officers in the Navy was, so far as relates to warrant officers, repealed by the act of March 3, 1847.

Some conversation took place respecting a notice givon yesterday by Mr. Hunter that he should move to-day the taking up of the In- I dian appropriation bill, to the exclusion of the usual Friday business, on doing so, after the reading of the journal? Mr. Chase inquired whether a single objeu- ! tion would nullify it, and being answered in the affirmative, objected. After some further remarks from Mes3r3. Pettit, Badger, and other Senators? The bill (S. 64) for the relief of the legal re preseatatives of John G. Mackall, deceased, was taken up, and the report from the Com mittee on Claims, on the motion of Mr. Hun ter, read in extenso.

The New Orleans Picayune has the fol lowing upon guano: "We have recemd full confirmation of the horrors reported to be in course of preparation, in connec tion with the guano trade, at theChincha Islands, It is pickcd up and wheeled to the shoots, it appears, by contract. The contractor has importod Chiuainen for this work, nearly six hundred of whom are now on these Islands. They are hired for five years, at the rate of $48 per annum. They commence work in the morning as soon as they can see to work. They have five tons of guano to dig and wheel to a distance of over one eigth of a mile. It is all or nearly all, so hard that it has to be picked up; and il they do not accomplish the five tons by five o'clock, P. M,, they are Hogged with raw hide whips, some five feet long, re ceiving one dozen stripes, each of which ' start the blood: then they are driven back to finish tfieir work. The guano has a very bad1 effect upon them, swelling their legs and arms, and giving them bad sores on their legs, feet, and hands. Notwith standing all these however, if they can get along, they are compelled to finish their task. Our informant says, he has known as many as thirty llogged in one day. They have no Sunday allowed with the exception of one in a year, the same work going on upon the Sabbath as du ring thestof the week. The consequence of this ill treatment is suicide, in various form, such as leaping from the rocks ore hundred feet high, cutting their throats and burying themselves alive. This last has actually been the case, to my knowl edge. One morning, three were found who had so buried themselves; two were dead and one alive. The last recovered to prolong his miserable existence for a short time. It is time the voice of civilization throughout the world was heard in de nunciation of such horrors as these. [CT^Said once a purse-proud rich man, just getting into his carriage, with his wife and daughters Haunting in velvet and furs, to a poor laborer, who was shovell ing coal into his vault: "Joe if you had not drank rum, you might now have been riding in my car riage, for nothing else could have preven ted a man of your education and oppor tunities from making money." "True enough," was the reply, "and if you had not sold rum and tempted me and others to drink and become drunk ards, 3*ou might now have been my driver, for rumselliug was the only business by which you ever made a dollar in your lire!" 3 OTT^The people of Fredericksburg, Va., in conjunction with Capt. Ben Darracott, have determined to purchase the steam ship Zephyr, at present used as a ferry boat in crossing the Cape Fear river at Wilmington, N.

Captain Darracott will com mand the boat and own one half of her. _A Jury of Females.?In the year 1194, the^ body of a female was discover ed in Newbury, under circumstances which rendered a coroner's inquest de sirable. A jury of twelve women was called, aad a copy of their verdict has been preserved. It was as follows: "\Ve judge according to our best light and content*, that the death of said Eliza beth was not by any violens or wrong dun to her by any parson or thing, but by som so Jen stoping of her breath." [XDPunch seems to think that the strongest instance on record, of the cele brated John Howard's benevolence, was the fact of having, at the age of 25, mar ried a lady of 52. He is universally ac knowledged to have been in advance of his age, but few are aware that Mr. How ard's age was so much in advance of kis.

I do not wish to be understood as maligning the motives of thnt JLs . inguished boay, but I must be permitted to say, that if, as they represent ed, they partook of that pure, disinterested, and philanthropic spirit which has by some been imputed to them, they have most signal ly failed in accomplishing that object. Philan thropy, sir?; viewed, as I have always been taught, in its most narrow sense, implies a natural desire to mitigate and soften, irrespec tive of sects, classes, or conditions?the suffer ings and affliction* incident to life. Poverty, I contend, is an affliction, and naturally pro duces suffering; and, here I would ask, is philanthropy the relative import, and are these the legitimate constructions implied in ibe bill ( I nuswer, no?its only application was to benefit the clerks, with the few poor messengers, laborers, and watchmen, whose duties were so intimately connected with tho?e of the clerks and other employees that to sink the one and swim the other would have been preposterous?worthy of the days of Nero; and. therefore, have justly met with the indignant rebuko of the people. Was not, sirs, the first bill (that of 1852; more than tainted with such anti-republican feelings and spirit; and, al though the doctrine is admitted that the la borer is worthy of his hire, have they received the same justice with the clerks, in having had meted out to them so generally, even in the same departments, an advance of pay commen surate with the enormous expenses of living? I again answer, no?and it was not until the present bill of 1854 was brought up for the spceial relief of the .clerks that, stimulated by previous injustice, they held meetings, and set forth their wrongs and grievances, in the form of memorials, to Congress, praying the same relief that they were thought of, or cared for. W ell, the bill eventually parsed, compensating more generally and with less distinction, whieh, so far as it goes, is worthy of an American Congress; but yet, in my judgment, it still re mains, so far as justice makes right, in statu quo. They seemed, to the last, disposed to avoid, by the most adroit and shrewd man ner of parliamentary legislation, the main features of the bill, by excluding a por tion of the mosr, meritorious and self sacrificing Government employees here in Washington, simply because some technical phrases relative to the implied duties (not powers) of Congress, with that of their natural reserved modesty in forbearing to bo importu nate and troublesome. Then where. I ask, is ! the conceded magnanimity, if, as I believe! it I was designed, when firtt reported to the Senate to benefit all alike? Then, like Esau's birth- | right, the true merits of the bill has been sac rificed for a mere mess of pottage, for the few hundred dtdlars saved thereby, will never add j much to their fame as legislators. But this poor deluded portion, whose anchor of hope i Wiis their unbounded confidence in this mis- j judged philanthrophy, are now told that be cause their duties do not come directly under the nose of the Heads of the Departments or that the regulation of their pay is left to the option, as it may be, of a corrupt aggrandize ing and parsimonious superintendent, he is to be. and must be, proscribed. Are these the primitive doctrines of republicanism 7 If so :he glorious Magna Charta for which our fithers offered up their lives, fortunes, and their sacred honor, is, and should be. pro nounced a forgery, and the wild Arab of the desert may wiih propriety laugh us to scorn as bein^ more just than we are. What be comes of the poor guards and watchmen un der this bill, whose time is wholly devoted and whose lives are perilled in guarding the peace and interests of sooiety, by holding in durance the murderer, incendiary and bur glar yea, the piratical mutineer of the high seas, and highway mail robber, pests at least, if not terrors, to society. What becomes, I again ask. of tlie officers who have the safe keeping ot such spirits as these committed to them, and who are now confined within the walls of the only United States jail and peni tentiary here in Washington ? Does not Con gress legislate for their Government' Did not Congress establish a code of laws and rules tor their discipline? nnd are not the officers of sa;d prison amenable to the laws of Con gress even by imprisonment for the prisoners' sate keeping and proper government? and. lusilj. do tbey not como directly under the supervision of the Interior Department? Why tiien, use the false and flimsy argument for the mere pnrpose of proscribing tbem, that Longre.-'s does not regulate their pay ? false and fliuisy as applicable to the penitentiary because every Warden, from its foundation up to t.ie present indefatigable incumbent, have in their annual reports represented strongly their very intricate and complicated duties to the favorable consideration of Congress with out efleet; and one (honor to his name) made himself a martyr in their cause, having been rutliieesly removed from office. But noways daunted, each of his successors have gloried in doing justice to merit by appealing annu ally to their sense of justiie in their officers' behalf, uttering no complaints on their part they contented themselves with hoping on' thinking that the magnanimity of a generous Congress would at least let one day be arrest ed in their la vor. But their beaoon, as they behoved the last bill to be, has proved but a delusive phantom, and they are now forced to exclaim, Oh. 'i-oubistency, chouart a jewel '? 8hame< "here is thy blush.'" Is it not evident to any rational mind, from the wrangling and quibbling disposition manifested by certain members during the passage of the bill, and upon the most minor points, that they designed to defeat it in intoto; or, have it to suit their own selfish views in excluding from its benefits a portion of the most worthy, and that, too, in the face of the fact, that but a few hundred dollars would be saved thereby, when thous ands, yea, millions, of the public treasury is squandered recklessly for naught but ambi hous purposes. Yes, "Tell it not in Gath, publiBh h not in the streets of Askelon." Is i: doing justice to those superintendents, such as tue Loard of Inspectors to the Penitentiary in whom Congress bas delegated the power of fixing salaries, by holding them responsible when their recommendations and applications to Congress for appropriations to justify them in such benevolence, meet no other acceptance at their hands than as always, with the very ungenerous argument that the institution should support itself ? Even after every board and warden have most lucidly and triumph antly explained the reasons why such results cannot he, by a reference to the present war dens first annual report, which does infinite credit to the head as well as the heart, he en ters into the most minute details for their in tormntion, and concludes by making a simple but feeling appeal for the relief of his officers Uas that appeal been answered? When Col l)ade was warden, after making similar inef lectual appeals to Congress in their behalf always being answered, why don't you make [the place support itself? heat last thought that he would try the courage of the board of inspectors, who had frequently expressed the will, but Congress having acted so parsimoni ously with them, they felt a timidness amount ing to I ear, that it would not be endorsed. The Colonel, however, told them, by way of en couragement, that he would take the respond n ^ theM conditioM to acqui esce, the Colonel proposed a bonus of one hundred dollars; they getting only five hun ted?he thought that one hundred, making six hundred per annum, was little enough to commence with, in consideration of the very .esponsib e duties they had to perform; bS the board was inexorable, as they thought that such a draught on Uncle Sam's coffers would be repudiated by his very chilanthrop. ic Congress. So proposing, the Colonel had to agree to a compromise in the form of a treaty duly ratified by their joint consent of equal' responsibility that fifty dollars should be their first incubus, (and which theoffioen were very grateful for,) making their pay five hun dred and fifty dollajs per annum, and which hag never been increased, although that amount twlt8 J88 on? thousand will this, and I must add, from what I have under thTr,Ifat v re*uir,ed\fWi development of the Colonel s popular humorsome tactics to reooncile some parties to that treaty Is it in SS r?derf"i' tb??. ?>?&, sors should be scrupulous in doing an set how which they fe cs for, as the ungenerous and fulfome argument could be brought into requisition : if they cannot perform the dutieafor that pay. others will, .such argument may be used with some 7 lnV)riTate' ??W-interested busi ness portion of the world, as applicable to all esse. But it is unwo thy the Congress of free and republican America. And here allow me to give but an outline of the many very oom phoated and arduous duties required ot them t .[SWj this generous Congress, and for which they refused them adequate coinpensa IIm'i!#y them from the elerk's bill, ?nIy haT? *iTen them U" trifling AQTWOt ?f twenty per cent, on thfJr aeagre salaries of $250, and many of them hiring large families to support, at that. First, thej | most be there br sunrise, to torn the prisoners out to work, ana ranain with them until sun- 1 set. Three of tha officers remain en duty al ternately every third night, aa the guard to, tha prison, ana do not see their families again for at least thirt j-iix consecutive hours. They are not at all rare of tha remaining four nights, aa they are tiab'.e to ba called on for incidental and contingent ?ireu testa noes, such as the sickness of one whose place has to be filled by those off duty." These and other con tingencies deprive them of much time that should be devoted to their families. They have but one Sabbath la the month to call their own, although this, too, is liable to be taken from them. But the present warden has se cured them more fully in the enjoyment of this latter than any of his predecessors. You will readily perceive that out of the twelve months in the year; thay ma* possibly gat as many Sabbaths; and with this they may possibly enjov about one half their nights, namely, one hundred and eighty-threa, in the bosoms of their families. Here I must conclude this hasty communi cation, by adding that although the ptivate artisan, with the whole business portion of the community throughout, the length and breadth of the Union, have nobly responded to the de mands and exigencies of the times, the neces nities of these officers have been entirely over looked by tbo?e holding the remedial measures in their bands. Unfortunately, they are pcor; and they must continue to buffet the adretse waves of this life, condoled only with the re flection of the poet: " If we support adversity with courage we shall have a keener reli*L for returning prosperity " Jcstice.
