SPEECHES PBUfTED
Members of Congress and others can

manner at the office of the " Evening
Star," at short notice and on reasonable
verms.
SPUtrr OF THE MOHSTHG PRESS.
The Inteliiecncer, of to-day, has no edi
torial. It is filled with communications,
extracts from exchanges, and news items.
Among its communications, we notice
several on the subject of "Know Nothing
ism," discussing both sides of the ques
tion. One of the writers, who favors the
Know Nothings, says:
' But the most formidable objection to Mr.
Towers is that he is said to belong to a secret
society. Of rhis I am unaware, bat assume it
he true Wei!, what then ? Does not my
friend, an Old Citiien. know that the priceless
gein of liberty has first sparkled in secret xo
i leitt.t in every country where it has been the
blessing and protection of any portion ol our
fellow-men 7 And. so far from secret societies
oeiug ar,ti-republican, they are only the teiror
of despotism of some kind. Nor "do we now
enjoy liberty alone from this source The
Christian religion itself, when driven by the
iron hee! of despotic power from among men,
wns preserved in the sanctuary of secret socie
ties until it marched gloriously forth to redeem
the world. In a country of liberty, secret so
cieties arc never to be dreaded. Numerous
l>odies do not band together to enslave them
.*e!ves or their country Tyrant?, in some form
alone, stand in awe of them But, admit that
secret societies are dangerous, why except Mr.
Mauiy trom their influence ? In assuming
that Know Nothingism is hostile to foreign in
fluence and Catholicism, are we blind to the
fact that every foreign-born citizen as well as
every Catholic will support him >. Why not,
ihvn.call him the forettrii or the Catholic
? -andidate ' But why these recriminations ?
'1 he city will be safe trusted to the administra
tion of either of the candidates."
Another, who opposes the order, says:
'? It is publicly charged, and by the entire
mass of our community believed, that such a
?ecret society, with such purposes and tenden
cies as have been herein characterised, exists
and is organised among us; and that it has in
thefiold its candidates for Mayor, for Alder
men. and Common Councilmen. Shall it sue
ceed ' And il it does, shall our city, during
The period of its dominion, retain the name of
Washington ? or must the good among our fel
low countrymen all unite to strip that honora
ble designation from us, and condemn us to
be like the organization of our rulers.41 a thiug
without a name
Let each good man do all a good man s du
ty. and vote for no man who is not above 11
suspicion of connexion with any secret politi
cal society whatever, who will hold and nolds
himself unfettered by any pledge but that
oath whLch the law prescribes, which is '? law
fully to execute the duties of his ftthce to the
best of his skill and judgment, without favor
**r partiality
S uch a man is the Mayor whom we now have,
anuwaose name is before us as a candidate for
re-election ; on such ground and on no other
he has 9tood and stands."
The Union, also, devotes a large space
in its columns to-day on the subject of
this new political order, speaking of it as
" the old impostor with a new name."
Here is a sample of the editors' feelings
and sentiments:
"The 'Know-Nothing party is really a
know-cothing party if it expects to maintain
itself upon such a platform as that we have
referred to. Our word for it, its leaders, who
happen to be anti-Catholic, will oftener see
the inside of a tavern than a church, a.td are
?juite ready to let foreigners vote if th-y will
vote on their side?promising to them, if the/
will, all the offices which the ' Know-!S calling
philosophy primarily refuses to them, I.tt us
narrow this idea to a single neighborhood
lake a Catholic family, for instancu: ?hat
man whether native or foreign-born would
see that family doubtle^ as well-beha?ed and
as well-ftustain<wl as his own. degraded into an
inferior.' What man would not repel, with
nigh S'orn.the idea of suspecting that family'
What man would heeitate to take that neigh
bor by the band, and invite him to his house '
I be bigot might, and the fool might, but not a
-?'Egible and right-minded man.'
Again:
441 he fact is. the name of the new party is a
good one It "ignifies ashortcareer and a ridio*
ulons end Men cannot overturn governments
Jtt these days by a joke. Politics is too Beri
oiis to be manuged by partisans with painted
faces and silly catch-words An American
Htizen leaves secre-y to despotisms, and par
aphernalia to the stage Know Nothing' may
nuit the rowdies ot a great city, who insult the
Sabbath with their druaken orgies, and make
rLe night hideous with their revels; but it is a
badge that a true man will fling from him with
??^ntempt. We cheapen our privileges by such
follies, and help our foes to laugh at*u? by
these crude schemes, meaning nothing' but
pr scriptl' n, aLd everything but patriotism
and common sense."
The Scntintl has a long article on the
subject of the Senate printing, and argues
its own case with all the unreflecting
z^n! of a new candidate for legal honors ;
I :t it should have borne in mind the old
saving, that when a lawyer undertakes
t?> manage his own ease, he has a simple
ton for a client.

The Final Adjournment?A joint resolu
tion passed the innate yesterday to adjourn
over from the 3d of July to the third Monday
in October. The object of the resolution is to
avoid the physical inconvenience! of Mid
summer legislation. With the ttaMrnflBseter
at 100 in the shade?perspiration starting at
every pore?shirt collars drooping and drip
ping?thirst eternal and heat, (infernal, we
had almost said.) it is almost impossible to ob
tain a quorum in either branch of Congress.
Besides, tndersoch peculiar circumstance?, it
is a critical experiment to bring together a
body of men, no matter how enlightened by
education, under the supposition that they
will listen patiently or vote understand!ngly
What chance has the Pacific railroad with

How could saint or senator listen to a speech

Who would not demand a drink in preference
to the previous question ? How could the
House divide, in the face of multiplying mis
eries ' In the petulance of excessive caloric,
is it not likely that th? House would kill ben
ate bills, and the Senate kill House bills, in
order to bring about a coo hies.? between the
two branches ?
We have conversed with several members ol
the House on the subject, and a few seem to re
gard with favorable ayes, the resolution adopt
ed by the Senate. The proposed adjournment,
or recess, does not diminish, but will, to some
oxtent. equalise the time to be consumed by
the two sessions of the present Congress. It
takes about six weeks from the long session to be
added to the short session, and gives a prefer
ence to pleasant over oppressive weather for
the purposes of legislation. The project is u
new one in our history, and promises fair?if
put into execution?to work advantageously'
for the interests of the country, and the health
and comfort of all parties concerned. It is
cot likely that the House will act on the reso
lution until after the recess.
No Interest Allowed on Demands Against
the United States.?It is a settled rule in ad
lusting claims and accounts against the Gov
ernment that as interest is not a part of a debt,
nor a necessary consequence of a debt, and a.*
the Government is presumed to be always ready
to pay its obligations on prope? proof of in
debtedness, no interest can be allowed by the
accounting officers, unless by special authority
of Congress. This principle is enforced by the
opinions of nearly every Attorney General ol
the I'nited States since the foundation of the
Republic. Interest, when claimed of the Gov
ernment, is in the nature of damages for with
holding money which it ought to have paid and
Jid tot pay. The United States will not pay
lamages on account of the mistakes or laches
jf its officers. This rule is spoken of by At
to-jey General Legare, in an opinion given
April 2,1642, as ;*a stern, but necessary rule,
adopted everywhere in the practice of Govern
ment."
The National Era's Defence of the Murder
Brs.?We copy the following from the Na
tional Era, of this city :
" Not upon the fervent speeches of Senator
Sumner, in behalf of good faith, of justice, ot
liberty, not upon the movements of Abolition
ists, in behalf of the rights of man, rests the
blame of this violence, the real culprits, the
men who, before God and posterity, will I ?
held responsible for the tumults, the disorder,
the bloodshed, that have attended the execu
tion ot this infamous act, are Franklin I'ier-c
and the members of Congress, the repealers ot
the Missouri Compromise, and Millard Fill
more and the members of Congress of Ihio.
who forced upon the People an act repugnant
to the Constitution, subversive of ail guaran
ties of personal liberty, and abhorrent to hu
manity.
This is decidedly cool' Charles Sumner's
fervent speeches "in behalf of good faith, of
justice, of liberty! !'' As well might we ex
pect honesty from a thief, chastity from a har
lot, truth from a perjurer, or tenderness from
a savage, as to look for exalted sentiments or
patriotic conduct from this " Mr. Manager
Carker, of the Abolition party. With the
principles of an incendiary and the courage
of a poultry purloiner, he unites in bis person
all that love of finery which has made Beau
Hickman bo famous, and all that desire for
newspaper notoriety which distinguishes Pro
fessor Robertson's persevering annoyances
It is possible that Col. Benton may yet show
some symptoms of consistency ; it is possible
for the Tribune to cease its unvarying howls
and the llerald to give accidental utterance to
truth ; it is possible to wean the Galphins anl
Gardiners of the country from the full breast
of the treasury; and it is even possible thi.t
Giddings may yet resort to clean language
and linen, but to expect faith, truth and honor
in this man Sumner, is like expecting the
dowers to bud and bloom upon icebergs.
The Notional Era and other kindred jour
nals may falsify the record, but the basenesi
of the act will not prevent posterity from
awarding full justice to those patriots wLo
were willing to jeopardize personal reputation
and to sacrifice political influence, in order to
unite the various conflicting sections of t' if.
great republic in bonds of fraternal love ar.d
strength. The last compromise act was pa?>< d
in 1850, and its provision for the capture and
remanding of fugitive slave? was regarded by
the great mass of the citizens of the free ?t tf?M
not as a boon or as a concession to the South,
but as an honest recognition of a plain con?ti
tutional right. A few silly old women shriek
ed. and a lew crack-brained parsons groaned
at the shocking idea of a person claiming mu!
obtaining possession of his property, no mat
ter where found or by whom retained; but
their ravings did not, atfiist, prove eontagiois
It was not until Sumner and his tribe, until
Giddings and bis followers, sent tbrth appeal
after appeal to the people to resist the law
and to smite its officers, that the worst of feel
inga of tbe wori-t of men were excited ii.t<
brutal action. The sequel is before the A m? r
ican public. The blood of Batchelder carnct
be washed out by all the saphisms of Sutm.er
or the trembling, hypocritical special pleaditig
of the Abolition press.
"Rejoinder to Xr. Rives. '?We have re
ceived the ably written rejoinder of Captain
Moore, to the editorial articfe of the Ulo.'? < i
the 2.3d inst. As it is a matter of public int.
rest, we shall endeavor to lay it before our
readers to-i3>rrow.
No Subaltern Officer allowed Additional
Rations.?An act approved March 2, 1S27, a!
lowed an additional ration to each captain and
subaltern in the army, provided, '? That no
subaltern officer who ahull be in the perform
ance of any *tajf duty, for which he receives
an extra compensation, shall be entitled to the
additional ration herein provided for. '
On the 3d of March, 1847, it was enacted
that this restrictive proviso 'shall be so inter
preted as not to include lieutenants, who hold
the appointments of adjutant and regimental
quartermaster."
Some officers holding these positions, assum'd
the latter act to be a legislative declaration
that the construction placed on the act of 1827.
by which adjutants, Ac., were denied the ad
ditional ration, was erroneous, and that they
were entitled to it at all times after the aot of
1^27, and they applied accordingly for the
??tLUiUtation allowance. The claims were le
jected. It was held at the Treasury that the
act of 1647 wad not a legislative exposition of
? former act, but a grant of & future allowance
in accordaace with the well established rule
that st?tut?p are not to be construed rotrospcc
tively, or to have a retro-active effect, unless it
shall clearly appear by the express terms of
the law th?t it was so intended by the Legis
lature.
President's Proclamation ?We have every
reason to believe that President Pieree will
send in his proclamation, relative to Cuban
affairs, to the Senate to-morrow. This docu
ment. while it discovutenances fillibustaring,
will, no doubt, in unmistakable language, take
strong groond against the repeated indignities
offered by the Spanish authorities to citisens
of this country as well as the American flag.
Pennsylvania.?The Pennsylvania delega
tion gave the largest vote in favor of the Ne
braska bill of any other delegation in the
House In the list of yeas, eleven Pennsylva
nia names will be found. Virginia gave ten
votes in favor of the bill?owing to the una
voidable absence of four of her delegation.
Superintendent of Indian A flairs Bt moved
We have been told, and believe it true, that
Lieut. E. F. Beall, Superintendent of Indian
Affairs in California, has been removed, and
the important trust confided to the charge of
Hon. T. J. Hendley, Postmaster at San Fran
cisco. It is said that Mr. Beall'# offence Is
malfeasance in office and insubordination.
The Commissioners to Spain.?We appre
hend that there is no truth in the report that
the Government is about to send two Commis
sioners to Spain to setttlo our difficulties with
that power.
Advices have been received at the Navy
Department from Commodore Dornin, of the
U. S. ship Portsmouth, dated Mazatlan, 30tb
April, 1854. Crew all well.
Resignation.?It is said that James Green,

has resigned his position.

Increased Demand for Coal.?Not
withstanding the present high price of
coal, says a late number of the Phila
delphia Ledger, the demand is still greater
than the supply, which shows a very
flourishing condition of the manufactur
ing interests of the country. The
Minersville paper makes a calculation
that the demand for coal upon the Atlan
tic seabord in 1854, will exceed the sup
ply at least 500,000 tons, and that 1,000,
000 tons of coal could be disposed of,
over and above the amount, say 6,000,000
tons, that will be sent to market. The
demand for coal, in the same ratio, in
1800, will fully meet a supply of 15,000,

per lip is injurious to the eyes.
We nose this to be the case.
YeLLOW Fever.?The yellow fever has
been raging at Key West with the great
est severity. It is now on the decline.
Tenantless Houses.?A New York
correspondent, thus writes :
"Never before, it is said, have so many
dwelling houses been without tenants in this
city than at present, owing to the high rents
asked early in the spring having driven many
persons out of the city.'
A Delicate Situation.?It is one of
the disadvantages of the co-operation of
the English with the French troops in the
East, that a sense of delicacy compels
the British to veil the regimental devices
which they earned in the great war in
the Peninsula and the Netherlands, lest
they should outrage the feelings of their
gallant comrades. The Scots1 Grays are
greater sufferers by their Waterloo dis
tinctions than any other corps, for it has
caused them to be kept back altogether.
They are literally covered with souvenirs
of Waterloo, and must have altered their
uniform entirely if they had been sent to
the East.
Crushed by Icebergs.?The ship Lady
Faulkland, at Liverpool, from Apalachi
cola, on the 19th April, in lat. 42, long.
40, passed a great quantity of wreck ;
also, a number of chests, boxes <fcc.,
which, as far as could be ascertained,
appeared to be the remains of some un
fortunate passenger ship that had been
beset and crushed by the masses of ice
which for the last two or three months
have obstructed the navigation of the
Atlantic.
Maritime Prosperity op Charleston.
It appears from the Charleston (S. C.j
Standard that there are owned at that
port 18 ships, 19 barques, 9 brigs, 3
steamships, 3 schooners, and 13 steam
boats, of 150 tons burthen and upwards.
The total tonnage is 25,785 tens, exclu
sive of a large nuuilxsr of schooners and
sloops, being an increase of forty per cent,
in the last two years.
Remedy for Hoven.?The Frederick
Examiner says that Mr. John II. Galion
a dairy farmer oi that neighborhood, be
lieves himself to havt* discovered an effect
ual remedy for hoven, or bloat in cattk
very common at this season of year. His
plan is to open the mouth of the animal
and pull its tongue quickly three or foui
times to its farthest tension. This, hi
says, products instantaneous relief. Sc
simple a remedy is well worth attention.
Spunky.?Lord Malmesbury said, in
the Douse of Peers, "Posterity, in his
opinion, was even more interested than
those now living in the issue of the
present struggle, and believing, as he
did, that the whole empire of Europe
would belong, and must belong, to that
Russian prince who was enabled to ob
tain possession of Constantinople and
hold it, he could not but believe that it
was necessary for England to spend botli
blood and treasure, even to the last sol
dier and the last shilling, in its defence.

We clip the following paragraph from
an exchange for the special benefit of the lady
readers of the Star :
" The Paris L* Pallet the undisputed oracle
of the fashions, states that the bo#/ms, the
jacket so in vogue with the ladies, are extend
ing to the length of a veritable paletot. I. ni
forinity in color, savs the same high authority,

....The New York Mirror thus netices
Miss Kimberly's Herald letter:
uThe only question that arises is thia: Why
do Forney and Forrest persecute Miss Kim
berly? We do not remember that her name
is mentioned in any of the correspondence
touching the Jamison plot to ruin Mrs. For
rest "
But Brother Fuller may remember that her
name appears in close proximity with that of
George Roberts, in nearly every hotel regis
ter in the country.
.... A committee of supposed " Know-Noth
ings1' visited this city on Monday last, from
Baltimore, for what purpose we "don't know,"
and were all registered for the samo room at
the National. The names of the members of
the committee are John G. WiTmot, D. H. Mc
Phail. Wm. Alexander, Charles Haney, A. II.
Davis, and Dr. Armitage.
. . . . .?
Utah.?Brigham Young, in his addresi
-to his people, speaks thus of his au
thority :
" I have no fears whatever of Franklin
Pierce excusing me from office, and say
ing that another man shall be governor
of this territory.
"We have not got a territorial govern
ment, and I am and will be governor,
and no jxneer can hinder it, until the Lord
Almighty soys: 4 Brigham, you need nut
be governor any longer,' and then I am
willing to yield to another. I have told
you the truth about that."
The Mormon mauner in electing a del
egate to Congress is, to say the least of
it, quite unique. Young, as presiding
Elder, is preaching, when he says:
44 It came into my mind when brother
Bernhisel was speaking, and the same
thing strikes me now, viz., inasmuch as
he does first rate as our delegate in Wash
ington, I was going to move that we
send him next season, though it is the
Sabbath day.
,4I understand these things, and say as
other people say, 44 We are Mormoas ?
We do things that are necessary to be
done when the time comes for us to do
them. If we wish to make political
speeches, and it is necessary for the best
interests aud kingdom of God, to make
them on the Sabbath, we do it. Brother
Kimball has seconded the motion that
Dr. Bcinhisel be sent back to Washing'on
as our delegate : all who are in favor ol
it raise your right hand." [More than
two thousand hands were at once seen
above the heads of the congregation .J
44 It is all right. I would never call for
an opposite vote. I will try it, howev
er." [Not a single hand was raised in
opposition. |
Trie Christian Spirit.?The New
York correspondent of the Philadelphia
Ledger writes as follows:
4'In all the Catholic Churches of Brook
lyn on Sunday, a request from the Bishoj
was read by the priests that all belonging
to the Roman Catholic Church should
avoid all places where sentiments are ut
tered calculated to wound their feelings
and, in any event, to abstain from creat
ing disturbance. The request was accom
panied by an assurance that a compliance
with it would evince a proper christian
spirit, and show that they were loverso
order and had a desire for peace."
Origin of tiie Phrase 44 Buncombe.'
The origin of the expression '\Buncomlx
speeches" is said to have been as follows
Some years since, a member of Congress
from the county of Buncombe, North
Carolina, was indulging in a long anc
very uninteresting harangue in the LIous<
of Representatives. Some attempted tc
cough him down, others called him tc
order ; but it was of no use?he was de
termined to have his say, let what woulc
occur. At last the members began t<
leave, and there was goon scarcely anj
persons left except the reporters. Ai
this stage of the proceeding, a member
who had listened with wonderful perse
verance, suggested to him that he would
soon be entirely destitute of auditors ;
whereupon he very coolly observed that
it was of no consequence, as he waf
44 not speaking for Washington," in othei
words, that his speech was intended foi
the perusal of his constituents, and noi
at all to influence the action of his fellow
members.
Alarming News to the Drinkers oi
Port and Brandy.?We are permittee
to make the following extract from a prL

to one of their correspondents in this city
"Owing to the unfavorable appearance
of the vines, ports have advanced fron:
12 to ?15 sterliug the pipe. The own

?50,408,371,91; the total cost $95,460,
243 59. The whole number of person;

jured, 73. One passenger was killed fo
every 198,630,149 miles traveled, and on
pi^ssenger injured for every 66,212,051
miles traveled.
0" The Hotel business in New Yorl
has been overdone, and don't pay near a:
well as it did one or two years ago. Thii
is principally owing to the rivalry fron
the multitude of second-class hotels, oi
large boarding houses, which have sprung
up in the back streets, under the unnatu
ral stimulus imparted by the Crysta
Palace excitement of last year.

In the Hovse. yesterday, at the conclusion
of Mr. (Jerritt's Smith's remtrks?
Mr. Perkins obtained the floor, and the com
mittee rose. ? ~
The House then took up the report of the
committee of conference on the deficiency bill,
which was concurred in?yets 71, nays 11.
The House then adjourned.
rROCEKMITGS OF TO DA Y.
Senate.?After prayer and the reading of
the journal, various petitions on different sub
jects were presented by several Senators.
Mr. Johnson brought up the subject of
priuting certain documents, correspondence of
Mr. Sauford at Paris, on the French penal
code, and reported adversely against the print
ing of the extra thousand copies as moved at
the time.
Mr. Jones, of Tennessee, spoke in favor of!
priuting the extra number, the subiect of the
correspondence was on the penal code of
France.
Mr. Johnson characterized the former part
of it as an account of the Government of France,
and of the revolutions in that country since
1S48, which was of no use to this country, the
latter part might be of use to the State Legis
latures in amending their penal code. The
committee were two to one against priuting
the same.
Mr. Fitzpatrick spoke against printing the
the work, endorsed by the Senate. The
amount of the appropriation would be $500.
Mr Fessenden doubted the propriety of
United States diplomatic agents employing
their time on such subjects. He was against
printing any such documents, sent by their
diplomatic agents abroad, which were uncalled
for.
Mr. Seward did not concur with the last
speaker, and spoke in favor of printing the
thousand extra copies.
Mr. liadger was of the same opinion, as the
expenditure was only trifling, and spoke in
favor of the original motion.
Mr. Fitzpatrick replied, and the disctusion
as to whether the original motion to print the
number already mentioned should be agreed
to. or whether the adverse repjrt of the Com
mittee on Printing should be concurred in. was
stopped by a vote agreeing to the latter
House.?The attendance to-day was much
larger than was anticipated. After the usual
preliminary business, and the introduction of
several unimportant resolutions
Some conversation took pla^e in regard t?.
the Senate's rosolution to adjourn over from
the first Monday in July to the third Monday
in October.
Mr. Cutting was of opinion that designating
a day for adjournment, at an early period of
the session, bad a tendency to engender a spi
rit of procrastination and delay among mem
bers.
On motion, the House went into Committee
of the Whole, and took up the Pacific Railroad
bill.
Mr. Perkins, of Louisiana, being entitled to
the floor, addressed the committee at length.
In the course of his remarks, he took occasion
to defend the action of the Administration.
As we clo?e this report. Mr. Perkins is still
speaking.
Pictures have "Riz."?Three pictures
were lately sold in London. "Cologne,
the arrival of a packet boat, Evening,"
was knocked down at 2,000; "Harbor of
I Dieppe"' at 1,850, and the "Guardship'
at 1,530 guineas. These pictures were
originally sold by the artist at compara
tively insignificant prices.
Quick Trip.?The Atrato, the largest
paddle-wheel steamer in the world, made
her first trip from St. Thomas to South
ampton, a distance of 3,GOO miles, in
twelve days and twenty hours, averaging
nearly 300 milts a day.
