***' ? . - WASHINGTON Oltfr: MOWDAY AFTEBNOOIC October 9. fC The difficulty of getting paper at this fnf tin very large edition the favor of onr patrons compels us to publish, which results in * great measure from the tco great scarcity of water this summer and fall to run the mills, induces us to make a temporary change in the appearance of the Star. Our paper will resume its lata appearance so soon as the fall rains enable us to lay in sufficient stock to be **1eta& against the casualities of the existing ?pretty of paper. Nearly all the papers ot large circulation at the North have been com gelled to adopt the same course. ? ?PIRIT OP THE MORNING PRESS '*'* Tfce Vition draws a striking parallel be tween the present condition of the Northern " and Southern popular mind, ehowiDg that while at the South all is quiet, calmness and contentment, a whirlwind of fanaticism and bigotry upon questions connected with reli gion, morals and politics, is sweeping over the H^rth. Abolitionism and Know NothiDgism, aooording to the Union, is running the pre -> viously half dsft North quite crazy. The fdiior comments in scorohing terms upon the as ha alleges, thai the man Judson, bet ter known as Ned Buntllne, than whom a t . nore notoriously infamous man in his personal eharaoter is not living, is the projector and ehiat spirit of the new secret political organ > ? -isaiion. He (the editor) argues that the fact that Judsoncan suddenly become so important i* political personage in our land, should be ' euficient t? alarm and arouse all true friends of our constitution and institutions. The Intelligencer is awful on the Union ' :this morning, commenting on the latter's in a aignation because he chose to be especially * civil to Mr. Senator Sumner recently. The editor says: " The Union may be very right in holding that no terms are too offensive to be employed towards Abolitionists; and, if wo wero the con ductors of a Government organ, wc might think so too; but, as our taste lies in a different way, the Union is too good a logioian to blamo us for a difference in that Abolition nd even Preeeoil politicians are as little to our liking ?rthey can be to that of the Union; but we . will not manifest our disapprobation ot them -b* virulent abuse. We do not even call the Union hard names, and if we can abstain from their use in regard to it, we could hardly be paruoned for using them towards anything w else." * -'The editor further argues that the skirts of th* Whigs are olear of having put the 'brazen faeed abolitionist" in the Senate, that having siiheen dene, he alleges, by the Democrats in coalition with the Free Soilers. <i -ij The Intelligencer also exposes the nonsensi > eal point to which some of the ultra northern 1 Democrats are urging the "Popular sover eigntes" doctrine by quoting a tom-fool reso lotion recently adopted in the Massachusetts -f democratic State Convention, wherein it is as iperted that? ""The Constitution recognizee the principle of eelf-government and the power of the people, to whatever bond united with each other. . Territory, to oontrol their own institutions; ? that on this principle alone the colonies en tered upon the struggle for independence the ?? 'Confederation was established, and the Federal a.'Constitution adopted." Th-? Sentinel, commenting on the f.ict that "Jack Hale"' is spouting over the North lachrymose eulogies on the virtues of the Mis souri compromise, quotes his speeches de livered a year or two since in the Senate, wherein he took most violent grounds against that same measure, holdl% up to scorn all from the North who originally voted for it. "?*? Excitmckt iw Baltimore.?The coming " Mayoralty election creates great exeitement at Baltimore. The Democrats are st< aining every nerre to bring out the full vote of city. All kinds ef stories arc being circulated about * die respective candidates and all sortB of esti T . " mates made as to the result of the election. a . . The Baltimore American in noticing the as (pact of the city yesterday says: 4,'There was one thing, however, calculated to make a bad impression upon the minds of ^tho strangers who are sojourning in our midst, and that was an immense crowd which gathered t at the corner ef South and Baltimore streets, at an early hour in the morning, and there continued until night, for the discussion of political subjects. So great was the crowd -that ladies were obliged to go into the street, it being almost impossible to force a passage through the throng. Ihis,. however, will not soon be the case again, as the oause will have disappeared before another Sabbath day comes around." | ' Plaih Talk.?The Philadelphia Sun, in a notioe "to correspondents'-' says : "Wo arc flooded with articles from friends on various topics of interest, connected with the pending elaotien. We must decline them all in a batch. Weadvocate our principles in our own way to . the best of cor ability, and have no room for e* the opinions of others, however well they may , be expressed. Besides this, our friends have a habit of paying for their communications as ?: advertisements in other papers and asking * their gratuitoos insertion in the Sun This is lc whet they call '-supporting a paper." We a think it poer encouragement, and, therefore. ?' light our battles on our own book. |y It is stated by a gentleman lately re tallied from Canada, that the bears, driven from the woods and back places by want of t fsod, have been unusually numerous in the lt~ open fields. One farmer lost twenty-nine cac * tie, carried off by them, and others have suf fered in like manner, though not to such an 9i extent. A crusade against these marauders was made, and about a dozen were shot. One weighing about two hundred pounds was found caught in the sluice way of the railroad at Sherbook, and was forthwith killed. * ,'a?0T' William Huling's sweet-heart went to ride with another young man and William felt so btdly that he hung himself upon an apple tree in full sight from the road by which he hnew she would return, and was fonnd dead, lie affair occurred in East Greenwich, R I. ?->?

Coal and Cod Pith.?The lucid and able opinion of Attorney General Cushing as to the interpretation of the Elgin-Marcy treaty, ap peals to satisfy the publio generally?even those disposed to find fault We notice one New York print now assails the President and Secretary of State for the reference of so plain a question to the Attorney General; when a fortnight since that identical print denounced the Secretary of the Treasury for his circular taking the same view that Mr. Cushing does Rumor says that the Nova Scotians and New Brunswickers are now asking of the Adminis tration, through Mr Cramptoo, the British Envoy, for leave to enter their fish and coal in the ports of the United States, before the Pro vincial ports are closed by ice, without payment of the duties tu cask, as now required by law, and upon their giviug bonds payable in March next in cose the necessary laws are not passed by the Legislatures of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, to give the reciprocity clauses of the treaty full effect, and in ease the Con gress of the United States does not release the duties. The colony of Prince Edward Island, it is understood, has enacted the necessary laws. We presume the favor asked cannot be granted by the Executive of the United States. It possesses no power to dispense with the rev enue laws, ex rruro rnotu, and without the previous legislation of Congress giving such authority. The colonists can now enter theii cod fish, mackerel, coal, 4 c., and place them in warehouse till the treaty is fully consum mated. We imagine this is all that can be done. It is rumored also that the Blue-noses and Nova Scotiaus desire that in case the duties on their fish and coal cannot bo released. the duties on American fish of British catching? i. fish taken by colonists on our coasts, uu der the privilege granted by the treaty?be relinquished. Wo presume this cannot be done till the treaty is felly carried out by the legislation of all thecolonies, and of the Brit ish Parliament, as stipulated in the treaty. The question is one of revenuo simply?the modification of the tariff of all the colonies to conform to the treaty. The treaty, as framed on this subject was agreed to, we learn, iu the terms proposed by the British negoti ators. Thecolonies elnimed that the power ol regulating their tariff devolved exclusively on their own local legislatures. The Bri i?h Gov ernment conceded this point, subject to itf right of revision by general law ; and hencc the provision is coupled with tho reservation requiring the superadded legislation of the Imperial Parliament. They should have look ed to the difficulties now said to have arisen as to the trouble and expense and delay of con vening all the local legislatures, and thee also waiting for the confirmatory action of the British Parliament. As to the cod and mackerel fisheries, we be lieve all loyal colonists freely conced-. that the Colonial Governments, eo long as the colonies are subject to and dependent upon the crown of Great Britain, have no control over them. The Imperial Government of Great Britain has the exclusive sovereignty and control ovei them, ana con dispose of them, ao it bars fit, ?!?Hout asking the consent of the colonies. The question as to the aamtoaion, free o duty, of American fish of British catching, is we presume, decided by the opinion of the Attorney General. This Government is one o< limited and restricted powers. The Executive cannot dispense with or suspend any law ot treaty, unless authorised by Congress; and. on the contrary, he is to see " the laws faith fully executed." The whole matter is one ol law and of constitutional power, not of comity If the case was different, we doubt not the in dulgence and favor sought by our neighbors WDuld be freely granted, as we could afford it. Our shrewd northern merchants have made arrangements with respect to their trade and fishing, founded upon the treaty and theii knowledge of what would occur. It would be unjust to them to grant the indulgence sought in violation of the plain terms of the treaty. The New York Election ?The Ilerald, it speculating over prospects in the coming New York State election, estimates that the vote ol the State is now about 550,000, of which 265, 000 are of all the different wings of the Whig party, including the Abolitionists of all de crees, and the balance?285,000?of all the dif ferent wings of the Democratic party. The same journal says that 100,000 of the 115,000 whe are, in New York, claimed to bo identified with the Know-Nothing organization, are Whigs. The Ilerald urges the Know-Nothings to drop their regularly-nominated candidate and rally on Bronson, on the ground that they cannot possibly elect him, (Ullinan.) even though he should receive 25,000 Silver-Grey Whig votes, not identified with the Know-Nothings. The editor argues that if the Know-Nothings will support Bronson, in whose behalf strenuous efforts to secure their nomination were made, the Hards will stick to him to a man, and thus elect him by their aid. It strikes us that the Herald cannot manage the Know-Nothings so as to coax them to go for its candidaie; and that even if it could do so, Bronson cannot be elected. Nearly one half of the Hard strength in the State was the Irish, and a portion of the German Democratic vote. The fact that Bronson was notoriously seeking, through his friends, the Know-Noth ing nomination, insures this half the Hard strength against him. The native-born Ilards of tho interior are greatly attachod (personally) to Gov. Seymour, whose friends feel very sure that they will rally upon nim in great strength. The ultra Anti Maine-law vote of the State was also principal y Hard. All the world knows that now that interest will not touch Bronson with a fitty-footpole. Seymour is its candidate?every Whig, even in the city of New York, deeply interested against the suc cess ot the Maine Law, being now ranged among Seymour's most active supporters. The Iiibuno is greatly oxercised at the determin ation ot that class of the Whigs to elect Sey mour. One fourth of the German vote of the State was Sewardish up to the organization of the Know-Nothing party, which has already driven to the support of Seymour all the Ger man Whigs, in a body ; every German paper in New Y'ork State?Whig up to a month or so ago?being now out for Seymour. We believe that Ullman will poll the Know Nothing strength to within 15,000 of what they claim to be their vote. That is, 100,000? 6,000 Democratic Know Nothings, and 69,000 Whig Know Nothings, with 25,000 Silver Greys, who are not Know Nothings. We be lieve that Seymour, instead of Bronson, will get more than half #what was lately the Hard vote, the ultra anti-Know Nothing?Irish and German vote of that wing?the liquor trade interest in it, and thousands of Native born Hard. in the interior, with whom, a? before remarked, he i? very popular. He will alio get the ultra anti-Know Nothing (Irish and German) Whig vote, and the ultra Maine law Whig vote, in addition to the Soft vote proper. Of the latter, Nebraska, Maine law and Know Nothingism combined, may together deprive him of posgibly 15,000 votes which were given to him on his first election. However, the combinations explained above, will, we think, certainly enable him to beat Clark out of eight. Clark is now merely the higher law candidate, being supported, since Ullman's nomination, only by the ultra Free Soil, anti Fugitive Slave Law, Abolitionist, Maine Law, Woman's Rights and other ismatically in clined people. The Know Nothing Victory.?We have at length got at the truth of the Know Nothing victory, reported by telegraph originally to have occurred at Louisville, on Saturday, the 30th ult. It did oocur at Nashville, although the papers of that city, of the 30th ult., of both political parties, tailed to oontain a single word from which it could be learned that an election was to come off there on that or any other day. It seems that both the candidates were Democrats, though the Whi^s have an average majority of six hundred and fif>y ttere. ?? either candidate received a Democratic or Whig nomination. Shephard, the person elected, declined to be a candidate, though he was voted for by most of the D#nocrats, and, unexpectedly to himself, by the Know Nothings. Our informant is an intelligent gentleman, very recently from Nashville, who says that he (Shephard) repudiates the favor of the Know Nothing party, and declares that he has no sympathy for them. We have every reason to believe that these facts are to be relied on. TJ. P. Ships of War ?Those in Washington interested ia naval affairs are momentarily expecting to hear of the sailing of the Prince- j ton from Philadelphia to Norfolk. There she is expected to take in Mr. Fabens, Commercial Agent, and Charge Wheeler and family, who are to proceed in her at least as far as Pensa cola, where it is no expected they will be transferred to the frigate Columbia, the flag ship of the Gulf squadron, in which they will proceed to San Juan, the irigate to remain there as long as may be necessary. The Prince ton, it is now understood, is in a condition to do duty, and, it is thought, is already under orders to form a part of the Gulf squadron. News of the sailing of the Independence (raiee) from New York, to join the Pacific squadron, is also momentarily expected in Washington. News from Fort Laramie.?We understand that the War Department have information from Fort Laramie, a week or two later than the last advices, from which it is ascertained that the total number of troops destroyed in the late Indian affair in that neighborhood was 31, not 21 as originally reported. The In dians had not subsequently made any demon stration against the post, and none was appre hended.

The Graham Trial The New York Heral of yesterday, (Sunday,) in speaking of the trial of Graham for the mur der of Loring, says: The trial of Dr. Graham, charged with the homicide of Col. Loring, at the St. Nicholas Hotel, in this city, on the 2d of August last, ha? now occupied the Court of Oyer and Ter miner for five days, and is still pending before the jury, to whom the evidence will be sum med up on Monday morning. The proceedings of Saturday were opened by a discussion upon a paragraph which appeared in a momin^pa per, charging, upon the authority of '* a cor respondent," that one of the jurors empan nelled to try the cause was a cousin of the wife of Dr Graham. After considerable argument, the Judge said if there was any motion offered on the subject, and an application made on affidavit, he would entertain it, but upon a mere newspaper paragraph he could make no comment, nor did he feel authorized to ques tion the juror as to tho accuracy or falsity ol the allegation. No motion being made, the matter was dropped, after an ineffectual effort on the part of the juror, (not the one alluded to,) to make some observations to the Court on the strangeness of the accusation. The de fence then proceeded to examine a number of witnesses, who deposed that it was an inva rixble custom of Dr. Graham to carry the wea pon in question, or some other s;ick, and that the cane was the vcuie mrcumoi the defendant, who was never seen without his hat and stick, except at meal times. Further evidence was offered by the defence to show the irrascibility of the deceased. This offer of testimony the Court excluded, but noted it on the minutes, and counsel for the defence excepted. Dr. J M. Carnochan was then examiued and gave very important surgical testimony. The great er part of the day, however, was occupied in the argument of the several offers of counsel, and at the rising of the Court it was understood that the evidence on both sides had jlosed. Correspondence of the N. Y. Courier and Enquirer G9VEKN0R OF UTAH. The official term of Governor Brigham Young of Utah Territory, expired on Friday, the29tt. September. His sucoessor has not been agreed upon, and I learn that the appointment of one has been found a matter of considerable diffi culty.

Gbougetowh, October 9, 1854. The son of Mr. George Craig, whose hand was injured by the premature discharge of a gun, as notioed in the Star some days since, died last nighUwth the Uutanus, which was superinduced t^W>ld gathering into the wound, which did not at first appear at all dangerous. This is another solemn warning to the multi tude of boys who may daily be seen in the wood contiguous to our city gunning. It will be seen by a notice under the head of obituaries, that Captain Jabes Travers, for many years a wood merchant in our city, ji man universally respected and esteemed by those who knew him. died yesterday at his re sidence near the Washington Brewery. In our notice of the sudden death of Mr. Darnel, at Mrs Lang's Hotel on Friday last, it should have been Francis, instead of Fielder. We thought there was something wrong in the report of sale of stock of the Corporation of Georgetown, first published in the Balti more Sun and afterwards in the Star. When we first saw it we could notsee how it was pos sible that the stock of a city corporation, which never fails to meet the interest upon its stocks promptly, could decline in value in a few months from 101 to 92 jents. The mone tary affairs, so fa> as we can learn, are in u very healthy condition, and we doubt not that the general assessment, which will be had rnext year, will show an increase in the value of taxable property in our city of at Iea?t one million of dollars. This inorease, at the maxi mum rate of taxation, will not only afford a sum amply sufficient to meet the interest and current expenses, but leave a surplus towards the liquidation of our funded debt. As we have heard of oonsideraUe cholera morbus and diarrhoea, about, we would advise our citizens to use considerable caution in pro curing vegetables in our market. It is gen erally known that many of the vegetables of fered there for sale is purchased in the Wash ington markets, and often kept over some three or four days, which must render them wholly unfit for food. We learn from boatmen, who have just reached our city, that a large break occurred upon our Canal near the Point of Rocks, on Friday last, which interrupts navigation upon it for some eight or ten days. The weather continues clear, mild, and pleasant. Business brisk, and our city, very healthy. Flour held nominally at $7.12} a $7.3 7} for standar 1 brands. Wheat $1 50 a $1 55 for white, and $1.45 a $1.50 for red. We hear of no sales of corn. Spkctator.
