Tho Union defends the last Democratic National Convention against a charge of the livening Post, that when they (the last Dem ocratic National Convention) accepted and ap proved a portion of th* resolutions of '93 and '99, that result was brought about in order to commit the Democratic party to the principle of nullification, and that oertain secession lea ders affected it to prepare the way for a dissoiu tion of the Union. Arguing to show that the Committee on Resolutions, by an overwhelm ing majority, refused to give any snob reading ss the Post alleges, the organ says that? " Du-ing the sitting of the committee on resolutions at the last National Convention of the Democratic party at Baltimore, that com uiitice by a veiy deoided vote, refused to place any such construction as is n;w placed upon the resolution by such enemies of the Union its are represented by the Post A very able uebate look place in the committee at the time; oue or two members contending that the prin ciple of secession was maintained in a portion of the resolutions of '93 and '9V, but the over whelming majority taking the grounds that the** obvious meaning and import" of those resolutions contemplated no such contingency as dissolution and secession, but that in adopt ing and endorsing them the democratic party was called upon to recognise them only in the sense in which :hoy bare always been under stood and practised by the fathers and frameis of the constitution itself " The Seu/tnc/ explains and defends the bom bardment of San Juan. fkKNtf!?At. .... Ibe Washington correspondent of a New York peper says : ?* It is a mistake to suppose there are no wealthy citisens in Washington. There are a large number of rich men here, who have be enuM. su by the rite of real estate caused by the .heraJityof the government expenditures. Mr Todd, the hatter, in Brown's lfotel. is ea tima ed to be worth a million; George Parker, .he grocer, *t halt a million; Otterback, the bw;chcr. at half a million; Ales rs.

Eacceu of the Spanish Revolutionists ? Letters reached two different Legations (for eign) in thia city this morning, eomiog by the laat Liverpool steamer, which make it posi tively certain that the telegraphic dispatches published in England, concerning the progrers of the Spanish revolution, ar# wholly decep tive. The truth i?, O'Donnell'a career, up to the very last adviecs in Paris, had been re markably successful indeed. Wherever Lis adherent* had risen?as they had done in many more places than tho telegraph told cf?they had so far maintained themselves trium- I phantly. The impression in English and French Government circles, when the steamer sailed, certainly was, that his aims were most likely to be speedily accomplished. | The Bogus Earl of Selkirk.?Among the rumors of the hour on the Avenue, ia one searcely to be credited, saying that the claim of the Mr. Humphreys (who now calls himself! Alexander) to be the Earl of Selkirk, and. therefore, entitled to the Selkirk estates and | rights which have gone a begging for an heir I since early in the eighteenth oentury, is being seriously urged in the U. 8. Senate in bar of I the ratification of the Fisheries treaty. Wei can hardly credit the fact, inasmuch as every ] member of the United States Senate, at least I should be sufficiently well informed to know, I that after yean of investigation, the pretence thus set up by thia individual has been scouted I out of Parliament and the law courts of the I British realm, while he himself barely escaped I punishment as the perpetrator of a monstrous ] frand. Indeed, we can hardly believe that j after having exhausted his own country's fund of credulity, he should find grave United I States Senators " green" enough to be caught I by his pretences. In the trial, " in ordinary," I wherein the nature of his claim was exposed. I extinction of the blood of the Earl of Selkirk I was fully proved, except that of hii son John; of otartmoor. It was claimed by this Mr. Hum- I phreys, that John of Antrim, was his son; and 1 that John of Birmingham, (England,) was the I son of John of Antrim; he (Humphreys) be- ] iog descended from the Birmingham John. I In the course of the trial, however, it was I made patent that the papers which were offered I to prove the chain of descent from John of I Gartmoor, to John of Birmingham, were sweep-1 ing forgeries, got up by a famous French wo-1 man, who followed the business of telling for-1 lunes, notoriously the shrewdest swindler ofl her day on tho continent. | All these facts causo the claim of Mr. Hum-1 phreys?Alexander to be hooted out of the] United Kingdom, to find a lodgement here, I where a joint stock specul ation upon it has t?;n J gotton op to o(>erate on the Government of the J United States?the executive branch of our I Government having been found unapproacha- I b!o with any such bogus pretence, Congress I is next beseiged with it; a claim being set up I it seems, that the British Government have no I right to cede to us the privilege of fishing on | the coast of British* North Ameriea, the con- I trol and emolument thereof being the right of | the French fortune telling woman's man We repeat, this clsiin stands wholly on a I forged patent?on a patent proved to be forged I in the only country wher8 its validity could be I lawfully tried. The Navy Appropriation Bill ?Efforts are I doubtless being made to induce the Senate so I to amend this bill, as that it will increase the I number of officers in the service of the two I highest grades, establish the proposed retired | list of officers unfit for active duties, and create I the new bureau of equipment, towards which I the House committee manifested as little favor I in framing thel* xoform hill, as towards j the proposition to make more captains *\nd I commanders in tho service We take it fori granted that these efforts must prove abortive. I though the retired list proposition is roally I wise and just. Being in what tae House com-1 mittee have voted bad company, it can hardly I be that even that alone can succeed at this ses-1 sion, unaccompanied by tho other reai reform* I which the committee aforesaid recommend. 1 Tho truth ia, neither the more higher officer I proposition, cor that for the creation of a new I naval bureau, are reforms ia any sense what- I ever. So long za captains and commanders I who rate on the pay-rolla aa being fit for activc I duty, are in sufficient number to allow one I half of them always to be on leave or doing but I occasional shore duty, Congress will not in-1 crease the liat. Nor will they divide the I duties of the Bureau of Equipment, Construe-1 tion and Bepaira, so long, as ut present, it I proves competent to the most satisfactory dis- I charge of those devolved upon it. I From Cuba.?We have a letter from an in-1 telligent American resident on the aeuth side I of Cuba, dated July 15, 1854, saying? * # * " There ia the d?1 to pay here I amongst the authorities, negro dealers, Ac I Several of the wealthiest and most influential I of our citizens, and others, have been arrested I I and imprisoned for participating in the busi-1 neas, and what ia to grow out of it all, ia more I than I can say. " I Thedesirefor annexation begins to pervade | even the old Spaniards, and if the Governor-1 General ia not soon relieved by his govern- I men:, he wi!l; I thin*, be relieved by some I other power. j " These are exciting times, and I would like 1 to tee the result of the experiment now being I made by tboae in power. Everything ia tend- I ing to prumote the viows of our Government I in purchasing, and I think they will Bucceed ] in aoing so on their own term9." I The Bayly Investigating Committee ?We I hear that Mr. Benjamin E. Green haa been ex-1 amiaed at length before this committee, and I that the uiuount of his testimony is th.it he I knows nothing, of hia own knowledge, of the I truth of bis allegation* against Mr. liayly, o! I Virginia. It ia aaid further, that ho haa named I Mr. Henry A. Wise aa having given him acme I information, in conversation, on which he I baaed the first portion of hia ao formally drawn allegation. It is also said around the House I Hall, that he asked to be permitted to file Mr B.'a Mexican-indemnity payment speeches iL the Hall, aa part oi his testimony, but that thi committee declined to accede to that request; the idea that there is anything in them goiBg j to snow corruption on the part of their author being the merest hallucination imaginable. Light-house Keepers Appointed.?At Skil agalee Rock, Michigan, Ambroiae Davenport, at $400 per annum. Also, John Davenport, asaistant keeper of the aame light, at $250 per annum. Boia Blanc, Michigan, Mr. Charles O'Mal ley, at $100 per annum. At Little Gull Island, N. Y., Joshua B. Ed wards, assistant keeper, a- $300 per annum. At the Three Beacon Lights at Holmes'.' Hole harbor, Masa., M. P. Baitler, at $400 pei annum. An Asaistant Naval Engineer Besigncd ? Hiram Hainea, 3d Aasistant Engineer, U. S. N . haa resigned. Official Bond! not to be Surrendered.?The bocda of disbursing officers or agenta are filed in obedience to law in the office of the proper Comptroller of the Treasury. Ia a recent case the sureties made applica tion for the surrender of the official b<-nd, aTtei all the aeoounts of their principal had been satisfactorily closed. It was held that the la? required bonds to be on file, and that there was no authority to withdraw them except for purposes of suit?no power having been given by ftctat* to 49/ offoer to surrender tbep is any contingency. On the final and satisfac tory adjustment of an account, a certificate to that effect from the proper officcr is sufficient for the sureties. New American Charges?From what is said just now among the leading Democratic mem bers of Congress, we have come to the conclu sion that yesterday, or cn the day before, the President tendered to Col. Jno. II. Wheeler, of North Carolina, the Chargeship to Nicara gua, and to Marlio. of Nashville, xec O / nessee, editor of the Union, of that city, the post of Charge to Guatemala. As it is hardly to be presumed that either will refuse such of fices, these appointments may fairly bo con sidered a? made.

In toe House, the bill toincrer.qe the effi ciency of the U. S. Army, was considered in Committee of the Whole on the state of the Unicn. Mr Letcher opposed the bill at length. On motion of Mr. L. that portion of the bill increasing the pay of all tho commissioned officers of the service, was stricken out. Tbe Committee then rose.

Inabilities, 1100,000, DISGRACEFUL FIGHT BETWEEN BILL POOL AND JOHN MORRISEY?MOR RISEY FRIGHTFULLY BE ATE W. The New York papers of last evening con tain the disgusting parti:ulars of a most dis graceful fight between two well known pugilist#, named Pool and Morrissey. The 'Times has the following classic account of the affair : '?One of our reporters happening in at a public hotel at a late hour last night, learned that Bill Pool and John Morrisey,?both rather notorious in the pagilistio world,?had made arrangements for "a hog light," (?the Fancy term it,) to come off at 7 o clock, on the Amos street dock, for $100 a side. "The bet appears to havo been challenged by Morrisey yes'eTday afternoon, at the City llolcl, the conditions of which were as pro posed by Morrisey and accepted by Pool:? "You dare not figlit mo for $100?name your place and timo. This is the language at tributed to Morrisey- Pool immediately took the bet. naming 7 o'clock this morning as the time, and the dock at the toot of Amos-street, as the place. " At about 5 this morning, Pool, with a friend, was seen to enter a row-boat, (the for mer as rowman,) and to pas3 up and down the North river. At this early hour several of the Fanoy, already assembled upon the dock, began to ruspect the place of the fight haa been changed, and that the delightful sport would bo lost to them. But the return of Pool at about 6 o'clock dissipated all doubt; and at quarter after six several hundred spec tators had as3embled. "The ground selected was of course conve nient to the friends of the party challenged, but no disposition was manifested to witness or tolerate foul play. " Fighters being usually before rather than behind time, (as the time had now reached 6J o'clock.) the prediction was expressed that Morrissey would not appear?that he had managed to bo arrested by the police, Ac., Ac. Pool expressed a wish that ho would come?that he would fight him like a man? aDd thought a d?d sight more of the fight than the money. " In a few moments, however, all doubt was dissipated. Morrissey walked down the deck, stripped for the occasion, where his antagonist stood to receive him. As he approached, the crowd opened to the right and left, and the shout went up, " Stand back! let the two men meet!" To this some attention was paid, (per haps as much as usual in such a fight,) when the parties met, "eager for the fray." "Both squared, and each eyeing hi3 antag tagonist wiitk a kind of calculating ferocity, moving about for a chance for half a minute, when Morrissy put out his left hand, and sim ultaneously Pool drooped, seized his adversary about the body and threw him. In this po sition they remained, Pool uppermost, for 12i minutes, when Morrissy said, " enough," and the usual shout went up and the parties were separated " Morrissey, supported by friends, left the ground apparently severely injured; while Pool was shouldered by his friends, and carried, apparently unscathed, to the nearest place for ablution,?where he, of course, partook of the usual, though interdicted beverage of the Ninth Ward." The Tribune gives the following account of the 'set-to " After very little ceremony Morrissey, who was dressed in a neat summer suit, opened the ball by making a pass at his adversary with his list. The blow missing its dmt'nation, Pool ssized Morrissey around the waist, threw him with groat violence to the ground, and then went at him with fists and feet, beating him in a most frightful manner, gouging out his right eye, the tight of which it is thought he will lose?cutting head, face, ears, and in fact, during the sppce of five minutes?that beiDg the length of time the fight lasted?dis figuring him in such a manner that ho was scarce recognized by his frionds. "Morrigsey seeing no chance of escapo, and fearing that his life would be sacrificed, cried enough, when he was released, placed in a light carriago and driven away by a email lad. Im mediately after the encounter was over, the Ninth Ward Police arrived at the spot, but as we are ioiormed, made no arrests. Some four hundred persons had collected on and about the river, and boats were lying by to witness tho disgraceful affair. Pool received but very slight irjuries; one of his eyes being consid erably blacked. After the fight had ended. Pool, with a friend or two, jumped into a boat and rowed up the river. It is s'atod that Morrissey chose this rough and tumble manner of lightiug lie alleges that several persons were upon and striking him *t the same time, but this id positively denied by Pool, who says that no one touched Morrissey but himself. " The main fight being over and the princi pal gone, several less noted villians came in coiiisiun John Lyng go*, a blow on the nose while defending his friend Morrissy. No others were seeaiirgly hurt. The police, after their arrival, quickly dispersed the fighting crowd, ant order was soon restored. Very smart po lice. The station-house is about three min utes' walk from tho scene " Under the head of " later particulars," the Times has the following paragraph : "Since the particulars of the brutal prize rough and tumble " figh' were published in the first evening edition of ihe Times, oae of our reporters has visited the room of Morrissey at fci3 hotel in Leonard street, lie is most shockingly disfigured about his face, both eyes are closed, his cheeks blackened and cut in h frightful manner. It puzzled many of his friends to recognize him. We learn that Bill Pool and hi* party of Ninth Ward friends havo left for Coney island, to have a jolly time over his success in whipping the bully who has made a noise in tho sporting world for the last few months." TEE NEWS BY THE AFRICA FURTHER DETAILS. The foreign mails by tho steamship Africa have reached this city. We have Liverpool papers of the 15th inst., and London papers of the 14th. Wo resume our summary of the news by this steamer. FRANCE. The Emperor arrived at Boulogne on the 11th. Thore was no public reoeption. On ar rival he reviewed the troops, and issued the following PROCLAMATION TO THE ARMY. "Soldiers ! Russia having forced us to a war. Franco has armed 500,000 of her children. England haa called out a considerable number of troops. To-day our troops and armies, united for the same cause, dominate in the Baltio as woll as in the Black Sea. I have selected you to be the first to carry our eagles to those regions of the north. English vessels will convey you there?a unique fact in history, which proves the intimate alliance of the two great nations, and the firm resolution of the two Governments not to abstain from any sacrifice to defend the right of the weak, the liberty of Europe, and the national honor. ?'Go, my children! Attentive Europe, openly or secretly, offers up vows for yeur tri umph; our country, proud of a struggle which only threatens the aggressor, accompanies you with its ardent vows; and I, whom impervi ous duties retain still distant from tho scene of events, shall have my eyes upon you. I shall be able to say, 'They are worthy sons of the oonquerers of Austerlitz, of Eylau, of Fried land, and of Moskowa.' Go ! May God protect you! " Napoleon." Long and oontinued shouts of "Vive l'Em pereur" followed the reading of this address The English ehipfl-<?f-war are anchored in Ca lais Roads. The embarkation will not take place until the 20th of July, previous to which tho whole foroe will be again reviewed by Napoleon. The Emperor resides at the Hotel du Nord. lie is not accompanied by the Em press. SPAIN. PROGRESS OF THR INSURRECTION. The Paris Moniteur publishes a dispatch from Madrid of the 11th July, according to which Madrid was quiet at that date. The insurgents were near Lespenapenos. Their ranks were rapidly thinning by desertion, and the royal troops were hemming them in. Gen. Serrano, who had joined the insurgents, did not succeed in carrying with him any of the soldiery. Government troops from the north were rapidly advancing toward Madrid. The Governors of Seville and Granada had taken the field in favor of the Government with all their disposable foroe. On the 4th, a body of the insurgents left Tembleque for Alcazar de San Juan, retreating in the direction of Anda lusia. Accounts brought to Madrid by parties fa vorable to the insurgents say that th9 rising in Valencia is formidable espeoially at Segorbe. Gen. Serrano, on joining O'Donnell made an address to the troops whloh was reoeived with enthusiasm. He brought with him to the in surgent rank* but a mull force of infantry, and 200 cavalry. O'Dennell is reported to i hare now with him about 5.000 men. of whom 1 not fewer than 2 000 are cavrlry. They are j in hopes of an outbreak in Madrid. MISCELLANEOUS. Ic tho British House of Lord#, on the 13th, the Bishop of Oxford called the attention of the Government to the fact that the first effect j of the deliverance of the Circassian Coast from Russian dominion, wore the active w;val of the slave trade in jzirls for the market of Con stantinople. The Earl Clarendon axplained the difficulties, that lie in the way of extin guishing this custom, lie also stated that Schuiayl is opposed to the trad - in Circassians, and that the present being a favorite oppor tunity, all that can be done for its suppression will be done by the British Government. In tho IIouso of Commons Lord John Russell stated, in answer to a question, that an effec tive blockade of the mouths of the Danube is established; with respect to the blockade of the sea of Azoff, and the intermediate ports of the Black Sea, some doubt had arisen as to its being quite in conformity with tho law of na tions. and tho subject had been remitted to the Courts of Paris, London and Constantinople; the result will soon be declared.

It is notified that the Sultnn will visit Omer Pasha's headquarters, and afterwards proceed to Silistria to distribute rewards to tho brave defenders of that fortress. Abd-el-Kader has written the following let ter to Omer Pasha. It is dated from Broussa, the 15tb of June : 11 My Very Dear Brother:?The gates of Paradise opened themselves for me when I spoke with tho Only Prophet, in a dream, on the eve of the 1st Ramadan. I heard all the great and holy souls who repose on Abraham's bosom proclaim your name with shouts of joy; and I saw a halo of glory spread around the ranks of tho holy souls when they uttered your name. God is with you, my brother. Where evcr you go, glory and victory will attend you Carry off the camps of your enemies ! Bless ings accompany you. Slay the enemy fly be fore you ii&e jjck&lls, and our children's chil dren glorify your namo. Forward, and draw not back ! The Prophet wills it. The day of expiation has arrived for the giaons of Mos cow. My blessings on you, my brother, Abd-kl-Kadkr." GEORGETOWN CORSES?ONDENCE a*OBG*TOWH, July 2S, 1854. On visiting Alexandria, a few days since, we were not a little surprised at seeing at the coal wharves the large number of vessels (some thirty odd) receiving and waiting for cargoes; and we were led to ask ourselves the question why it was that the capitalists of Georgetown, with facilities for transhipping the article far superior in every sense of the word to ?hose enjoyed by our neighbors, had suffered tho whole of this large amount of trade to slip through their fingers and fnd a permanent location elsewhere. Before and about the time the canal was completed to Cumberland, wa heard muoh talk about the coal trade, and the great benefits Georgetown would derive from it, and many plans for its reception were devised; but wo are sorry to gay that not one of them was ever carried out. While we were talking about the matter, our neighbors acted, and thus wo suffered our selves to bo despoiled of ihe wholo of this trade. We cannot believe that it is owing to a want of enterprise upon the part of our merchants; upen the contrary, wo believe them generally to be possessed of as much of this very necessary element in the char acter of a business man, as those of any other place. But we belileve that it is owing mainly to tbe fact, that, instead of putting our own shoulder to the wheel, and relying upon our own rotourccs, we haro too lone looked for help from a source which expere rienca teaches us we have just grounds to ex pect but little. That there are some difficulty in the way of our entering extensively into the fltvtrade, that Alexandria has not to contend WTft, wo admit; but they are not such as could not be easily overcome. The principal one, we believe, is that miserable incubus upon the prosperity of our laws, the long Bridge ? but we feel confident that the additional ex peneeof boats unlosditgat Alexandria, caused the difference in distance and delays, fully double what it would cost tor towing vessels engaged in tbe trade to and from that point. We have heard ano.her reason aosigned why we have not at least a portion of this trade, and that if, that some of tho owners of the property best adapted for coal wharves, are in the regular habit, whenever they ascertain that either our own or capitalists from abroad are anxious to obtain it for such a pur pose, of trying to extort from them two or threo times its real value, and thus both the trade and capital has been driven from amon? th? referred to, in Sf. I Jading a profit to the owner*, is in such a condition that we doubt whether it pays even the corporation taxes. If this be the real cause, we hope chat the true frieuds of unr town will use their utmost endeavorf to * id us of all roch drones.
