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.

. 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." |

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP.
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.

GEORGETOWN CORRESPONDENCE.
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
