The Union comments editorial 1 v on the pro ceedings of the minority of the House i.i .the latter hours of the continuous ses sion of Thursday and Friday last, to show that the purpose of those control ling tiieir movements, were in exact keep j ^ with the famous instructions issued, fiom the office of the New York Tribune. The Sentinel 'comments facetiously on the article in Saturday morning's Union headed "If I advance follow me; if I draw hark, kill; if I fell, avenge me," where in.that journal argues to show that the President is at the head and front of the Nebiaska movement and policy, pretend in$ n?t to understand whether its words <?? encouragement were directed to the eftemies* Or friends ' of the bill. Verily su^h articles in its columns at such a ?hne, look as though the Sentinel's jeal ousy of the 'Union is stronger upon it than its desire to compass the enactment of the Nebraska bill. The Intelligencer discusses our Spanish relations,, making the current newspaper versions of Mr. Soule's demands on the Government at Madrid, the basis of its article.

The Herald, of yesterday^ says : " Tbp meeting was called to assemble at fiv?'<Molochf bbt as there were only a Park At that time, it was not called to order until a quarter past five, when the attendance had increased to* three or four hundred. At half-past five about one thousand persons were present. The platform was chiefly occupied by such, men as John Jay, E. A. Stansbury, and other free-soilers. But very few of the gentlemen whose names appear in the list of officers were present." . " The same paper farther says: "The respectable men who had signed the requisition were not to'be seen at the meeting; they had perhaps grown weary of the part of dupes, and having given the sanction of their names to the'move ment, left the part of action t? those who had really something to make by foment-; ing sedition. It would be erroneous to say that the meeting was a failure. On the contrary, as a gathering of disunion ists, we regard it as eminently successful. There were fully one thousand people present, which is rather more than half I as ?any as assembled to clear away the mud from the streets of New York. One thousand traitors, ready ^advocate the dissolution of the Union, and the destruc tion pf the Capitol Jby fire, are quite as many as the most sanguine Sewartuiej could have expected to find in a city ol six hundred thousand inhabitants.*' - U. .. ^ ?? .... , PHYSICAL ENDURANCE?BEAK BREAD vs. BOLOGltE SAUSAGES. We clip th? following from the Balti more Patriot of Saturday evening, as one of the good things of the season: . I " It wlH be seen that the question whether the f/iends or opponents of Nebraska can do j with Ie.-s food, sleep or liquor ia still in doubt. | Mr. Richardson was found perhaps to have! had greater physical aptitude for a contest of ] that description than Mr. Urceley anticipated. He announces the capitulation of the starva tionists uudtr terms which had not transpired. As a matter of scientific investigation we regret that this peculiar remedy has failed so prematurely. We should have liked the Smithsonian eavans to have investigated the I relation between phy?ioal endurance and I opinions, as iHu?trated by the votes of Con gress. We are therefore very sorry that the. starvatioMsta, ih the language of racers '? broke up" before this contest could be decided. Col. Richardson ha* destroyed the theory of a minority veto. Col Richardson is a large man. with a strong voice, uncommon hardnesi of head, soundness of sense, and directness or purpose. He has, we believe, fought and starved through the Mexican war. He carries a chew oftobacco as largo as a walnut in bis nether jaw, which would sup port him until a wbole platoon of weak* chested zealots, with worsted comforters, must give in from physical exhaustion. This "pet ting up ' is fun Tor CoL Richardson. He re quires nothing except a'military shakedown. Au armful of straw, and a ewi? from atickUr. prepare him for any. extremity. It ig the watchfire over which ho hng laughed at the enemies of his country many a night, and he ! has no doubt smiled at tho weak device of its i enemies in the present instance. Mr. (ireeley evidently made no allowance in the recom mendation of hi < heory for the physical capacity of Col. Richardson. His theory has in conscience failed." ??7* Many amusing stories are told about the proceedings of the House of I Representatives, during its long sittings of last week, among which we find the following, in the correspondence of the I Philadelphia PtTinsylvaiiian of Saturday last: ''During the " short hours," of last night, several amusing incidents occurred in the House. As a vote was taking, by tellers, on a motion to adjourn, Gencrai ? ?, was startled from a sound sleep by the loud and sudden snoring of a col league The General was on his feet in a twinkling, and of oourse was in that hal dreamy state when the eyes and brain are not on a perfectly good understanding. At that very moment the tall form of the Abolitionist Joshua was passing between the teller?, followed by Mr. Washburn, of Maine, who is much below the average height. The General did not recognize either Mr. Giddings or Mr. Washburn. He saw, or fancied he saw, a man and a Uy, and, in the terror of his apprehen sions, he shouted out,4 Gentlemen, I pro test against that! The Anti-Nebraska men are ringing in the pages upon us!' " The General alluded to is our old friend Straub, of the Schuylkill district. GIT"* The New York Minor, an anti Nebraska paper, says: "It strikes us that the only honest way of meeting the measure, is to come right up to a fair and square vote upon it. We do not be lieve in parliamentary trickery on the part of the minority, It is factious and unfair, not to say dishonorable. If a ma jority of the members of the House are inexorably determined to vote for the bill, why then let it pass." JIT" The Williamsburg Times black guards Mr. Tweed, with true Abolition rancor, for making a speech in favor of the Nebraska bill. We think he will survive it; A Gallows Rascal.?A man named Gorslme, married, too, got clear for the time, at Albany, N. Y., last week, but simply by one jurymen holding out, on a charge of attempting to murder his para mour. Maria Schoonmaker, on a Sunday in April, last year. She testified thai Gorsline requested her to take a walk witb him and his wife on the top oI the mountain to look off the rocks; that after reaching the top, he approached the edge of the focks and requested her to come and see a ground-hog, playing below in the bushes. She assented to do so, and while in the act of looking over, he, with both hands, pushed her off headlong. I lie following Tuesday she was found by a Mr. \ anderlyn, about half a mile from the rocks, to where she hatf crawled by i?r sUckiJ?*> seriously injured that her life was despaired of. She stated tliat Gorslme had pushed her off the rock s tne Sunday previous, and Mr. V. going to the place she described, found she had fallen a distance of 230 feet in the top of a small birch tree which had nx>wn from the crevice of the rocks, and which by the force of the fall, had been bent tb the1 ground, and also found blood cleav ing to the leaves and limbs of the trees.

Bee our report of the pr?#^edings %e tke ldk?t Moment.?Ere we wont to press. folbardaon got in his resolution closlngflfCrNebraska debate on SataHay next, at 12!m., and postponing the Paciftc railroad bill to the 24th. * A few words passed between Messrs."Jlunt and Craige, which -it was judged, bj some present, mi *ht lead to a duel. ^ The Caucus, thai nornhig <?tie reprwe^1 tativo supporters.,of the Nebraska bill met | shortly after the appointed hour in the House Foreign Affairs' .Committee room, which was densely crowded, some one hundred genfl^;; men being, preaefct. Mr. Olds was called to the Cha!r, and a resolution was adopted author izing Mr. Richardson to propose, in the House to-day, to eictend the time for the close of the general debate on the bill to 2 p. m, of Friday next, if its opponents desired such an exten sion of time. . _..i ? The condition of affairs in the Hall was con versed over (rather than debated^ by many cf ] those present, and it is understood to have been agreed that no formal postponement of the "special order'1 bythe Houso is necessary to | their purpose of passing the Nebraska bill in advancc of the transaction of any other busi ness. On Inflection and examination, it was concluded that on going into committee a ma jority could always postpone the consideration of the special order from day to day. Impudence.?Those who telegraph from Washington to the New York Tribune and it? kindred prints, unblushingly announced that j the udjoarnmant of Friday night last was brought about by the "caving in" of the friends of Nebraska. . They have to reaort to such gross and palpable misrepresentations of well known facts* to serve their miserable pur pose of deceiving the public, though they can not possibly fail to be aware that their tricks.' Bach as that, will be speedily exposed. Their calculation, however, was, that it might servt the momentary end of encouraging the.meet ing convened for Saturday evoning, in thfc' Mew York Park, to pass the cut and dried in cendiary resolves of Bryant, Greeley, Jay A Co.?all well known Abolitionists?designed foolishly enough, to intimidate the representa tives from New York cjty into the belief that popular sentiment there will possibly follow the men named above in anything At six, p. m , on any day, without a single previous an-j noancanient, the erection of a speaking stand, the tooting of a band of music, and tne bel lowing, of any man, with stout lungs, from tfce. s and aforasaid. will, in half an hour, attract a crowd of from live to eight thousand people in the New York Park, not more than a tenth of whom, however, can, by any possible chance, be boiiu juit citizens of the United J States. These are stereotyped facts, which all who know New York well, realizo. Meetings j of this sort, held there, willehdorse anything | their getters up have, cut and dried, in hand. That is, the crowd of two or three hundred, immediately surrounding tho stand will ory out at aye; when the managers wilf. of course, proclaim and publish their doings and pur poses as triumphantly endorsed. No member from New York ciiy is to be operated upon by any such bogus system of j political tactics, all of them knowing that the taint of the ultraisffis of Bryant, Jay & Co , upon any thing, wc care n->t what, is sufficient to make it odious to nineteen twentieths of the | legal voters pf the city. But, returning to our starting pointt we I have to assure the distant public, that the ad journment of Friday night, is well understnil in Washington to have been moved by Mr. ltichardsoH on the request of gentlemen op posed to the bill, who were not willing to con tinue votiug with its abolition opponents after j the latter should make it plain to the woria, thai they were simply aiming to carry out the injunction of Mr. Horace Grcely, under the superintendence* of Mr. Senator Sumner, to, if possible, revolutionize the Government of | the United States, if such ?n act be necessary j to defeat'tho intention of the maj,rit} to ex ercise a constitutional right in a constitutional way. These gentlemen (of the opposition to the bili) declared that they wanted to make an effort | to agree among themselves as to the time neces sary for the farther difoussion of the measure, and voluntarily offered to vote hereafter with the majority against efforts to revolutionize j the Government of the United States, though not to vote for the bill. Under euch representa tions only, did the majority promptly and properly consent to tho adjournment until next day, after a continuous session of thirty-bix hours duration. Tho truth of this statement is manifest in the changed character of the voting on Saturday, when the motions designed to ??kill time" were supported by from 40 to I>2 members only; instead of from 75 to 85, as before. The Building of the New Naval Steam* ships.?Our friends in Baltimore, who seem to be much disappointod because the urtizans of that, famous clipper-building city are not to have an opportunity to show thoir skill in con structing steamships of war, in tho distribu tion of the work the sort recently ordered by Congress, tire reminded that the Govern ment is unfortunately without the necessary paraphernalia and materials at that point. No Government in the world which builds naval ships to last, builds them by contract, for the simple reason that there requires to be used in them, timber of various ki nds which no pri vaits | ship owners can procure. That is, seasoned at a cost which would hroak any private parties undertaking to lay ou. of the interest on their capital so invested, tlr the length of time ne cessary. Cuder these circumstances, it strikes us that, however sincerely disj >S3d tho Secretary of the Navy might have been to avail himself ol t ie well known skill ot tho ship-builders of liultimore, it could not be doue iu this case at that point, with dueregird to the public in terest. A Mistake.?The Richmond Examiner is j in error iu reproseutirg that no New York Sjfts are acting with the friends of Nebraska ill the current contest I n the House. On the contrary. Messrs. Tweed, Cummlng, Walker, and Taylor, of that State, arc among the most prominent not only cf tho "Softs ' in Con grc:s, but of the supporters of the bill. This | fact completely*knocks from under the Ex' a mint r all the basis of its long leader in the last issue of that jou.u.'.. When the Ne braska question shall be linally taken, we anticipate, that, at least two more "Softs will )>e found voting with the mass ?f the Democratic party on this question. ? ? The Renting of Officers' Quarters ?It ft held in the settlement of army oflicors' ac counts at the Treasury Department, that in a case where the exigencies of the public ser vice compel the Quartermaster to hire private quarters Tor the accommodation ef officers, in connection with public quarters, and they shall be actually occupied as such, the hire or rent is allowable, if the -number of rooms does not exceed . the or mplement allowed by regula tien.

JACK SON. The Baltimore Patriot of last Friday evening says :?" General Jackson pos sessed moral qualities of a character cal culated to endear him to the hearts of his followers. If he never forgave an enemy he never forgot a friend. The letter which v/e publish below contains an admirable example of confidence on shaken by the condemnation of others. Dr. Gwin had been distinguished, we think, as one of the Federal Land-officers, against whom an unsettled balance had been reported ; he had also, we believe, been in some trouble as a fiscal officer under the government o<* Mississippi. We presume the letter refers to these charges. Since that period, however, Mr. Gwin has emerged gloriously from the 14 vitu peration and slander?' which oppressed him. He has vindicated his personal honor by going- a Sabbath day s journey into the country to fight Mr. McCorkle with rifles, and borh returned with whole skins and reciprocal certificates of un blemished honor. He now sits in the Senate as an efficient and indefatigable representative of the golden land. He is the patruu of one of the most impor tant measures of public improvement pending in Congress. Dr. Gwin certainly deserves admiration for the indomitable determination with which lie has breasted the waves of calumny and personal em barrassments." Unpublished Letter from Gen. Jackson. ' - ?

It is the day of vituperation and slander, and you, like all other public men, must expect your share.
