The Intelligencer says: "If the distant reader could see all that is goiQg on out Weet among the politicians be would be amused as well as surprised at their perplexities. In Michigan ana Illinois, for instance, the Whig candi dates for Congress were first reviled as Aboli tionists, and as baing opposed to the right of the people to regulate their own institutions. Then, as the canvass advanced, it was urged that Whig opposition to the .Nebraska bill was opposition to the spread of freedom. This magical measure, it was said, would not only make Kansas and Nebraska Free Spates, but would fur-aver uettroy the idea of another Slave State, evcu ii territory were acquired to the Isthmus of Darieu. Other grounds as sumed by the Democracy are, that the Nebras ka bill does not cpen the Territory to slavery, that slavery cannot exist without positive law, and that slavery has never advanced a step into free territory." The Union, in commenting on the growing disposition in England and Spain in favor of letting us have Cuba, says of tho President's position on the question: " He came into power resolved honorably to acquire that island, and he believes this duty to be binding on him still, no matter whether the question is considered in its relations to humanity, to commerce, or to freedom. While Spain adheres to that island, and to the miser able policy which has disgraced her authority there, it will be impossible to suppress the ac tive sympathy of thousands in this country for those who suffer from despotism in sight of our shores. Ihe same causes will continue to annoy our merchants and oar shippers; and thus Cuba will be no less a magazine of dis content to Spain than a pretext for armed ex peditions from the United States. It is in view of all these circumstances, and others familiar to the world, that the President, while sternly enforcing our laws against those who oontemplate illegal expeditions upon Cuba, has preserved in every honorable expe dient to induce Spain to come to terms on this issue."

The kind of oath administered, he said, wa3 like that pub lished in the Boston Post of October 25.

The Moral Disease of the Timer?Just now, the prees ef both great political parties are cry ing aloud against the interminable propensity of some of the clergy to meddle in politics,as de monstrated in this country within the last few years, and more especially within six months past. The storm of abolitionism now raging is nearly altogether of their generating? J stump speeches being substituted for sermons nearly once a week in every abolition pulpit. Profiting by, or father presuming on, the li cense they derive from the respect which the country has for their calling, and the circum stances under which they belch forth their multitude of falsehoods and slanders of those whose views on public affairs are not to their taste, they have this season rushed forward muoh more than ever before to become candi dates for civil rather than ecclesiastical pffice, and a large number of them have been elected to political positions. We need hardly remark, that this is against the spirit of our institu tions?diametrically opposed to it. Their charge is, the affairs of eternity?not tempo ? ral afiairs. Wherever, they as a class, have obtained political power abroad, they have abused it?never yet failing to use it for the oppression of the people, and for other sinister purposes?or the written history of the world is ialse from beginning to end. The knowledge of this fact, common to all Ameri cans who know anything, has generated a well grounded repugnance in this country to priest* ly interference in secular affairs, which is just now bursting forth in all quarters of the coun try, and more especially in New York, where, through psuedo-pnestly machinations, some of the church councils and moral and religious associations of all sorts are openly resolving to take part in the coming elections, and almost pronouncing anathemas of damnation against those acting with them in spiritual matters' who will not obey their behests iu political affairs. We are right glad that they uador take to thrust their cloven hoofs in tho sight of the publio before they have really succeeded in obtaining the "political power at which they aim. We are glad of it, for the sake of pure religion, which has done so much for our country, as for all the rest of the world. While nine-tenths of the Christians?all the true Christians?of the land deplore with us this manifestation of belfishnoss, pride, worldli ness, and other emanations from the counsels of the evil cne, in the American church of various denominations, they will doubtless agree with us in rejoicing that it has been laid bare to the gaze of a free people ever jealous of their liberties, and ever ready to check the spread of practices which threaten those liberties, immediately or remotely. Up to a few years since, Christianity, in the United States, was almost without a blotch upon its fair face, and it was doing more for the regeneration of man here, than in any ether country under the sun. But human reason has been set up by many spiritual teachers as the God for their flocks to worship The consequence has betn the very natural generation of hundreds of thousands of "per tectibles"?men who, instead vf walking ??j tLu cigui ui tne Lord, are eternally ohuckling over the idea that-they are muoh better than the publicans and sin ners, their neighbors and fellow countrymen, one and all. Another result of this clerical abandonment of the jBible as the proper guide for all men, has been the creation of one hun dred infidels and scoffers in our land, where one existed thirty years ago. These are cir cumstances greatly to be deplored, and their existence is proved by the so much greater frequency of crime everywhere in the United States, and the so much lighter regard in which what wore formerly considered mon strous crimes, are now popul arly held, though church edifices have multiplied almoBt mirac-\ ulously in this country, and money is now j given in immense sums nominally for the con version and regeneration of poor fallen man, here and elsewhere. It strikes us that the evil at the ^bottom of the existing state of things, threatening so seriously to sap the foundations of pure spiritual Christianity in our land, is about to be cured. The act ol those nominal Christian teachers who forget that their mission is not of this earth, in sud denly rushing forward to assume the practical control of public affairs in this country, can not fail to arouse the great body of the Amer ican Christians of the land to the duty ol j checking them in their mad career, if they would prevent scepticism from prevailing everywhere, and anti-church combinations from springing up in every quarter where there may be citizens of the United States who j are indisposed to give up the control of Amer ican publio affairs, to demagogues seeking po litical power under the guise of managing the matters of moral and religious associations. The Coet of Military Transportation.?Fre quently hearing and reading comments upon the enormous cost of the Quartermaster's department to the Treasury of the United States, we have been induced to devote some time to inquiries into the subject, and think we have discovered the cause of this heavy pro rata increase of expense in that branch of the military servise of the United States, in the fact, that though Congress can force the Army te do at least twice as much active duty as is done by any other similar number of troops ol any other Government in time of poace, it can not lessen the extra transportation and othe. incidental expenses growing out of frequent and extensive changes in the position of the different corps. The saving in the pay of the officer* and men, by keeping their number down to the lowest possible notch, is'almost counterbalanced by the heavy increase of the expenses of the Quartermaster's department, and other incidentals resulting almost wholly from requiring double duty of the diilerent corps. This is a point which will prove of in terest next winter, and we trust that some pub lic functionary who may properly make an exposition on the subject, will supply Congress with the facts and figures bea?ing.on the mat ter. Poland not to bo Again made a -Govern ment.?It does not seem to be thought by the diplomatists in this city that the Allies will venture on the hazardous experiment of de claring Poland free from Russian dominion, as that policy will be an Invitation to Russia to start the ball of revolution in western Europe wherever the C*ar's open5 or secret enemies can be injured by that policy on his part. He has nothing,.absolutely nothing to lose by 1 bringing about a second edition of the state of | things in western Europe occurring in 1848, and then imminently threatening the exist ence 6f more than one of the governments now in league against him. "Revolution" has no terrors for him, as it is not possible that it ean any wqr impair the integrity of hty dorqip. ions or power. He has bat to raise his finger, by way of encouragement, to give bis enemies more than they oan conveniently manage at home, by way of oocapation for their troops. The diplomatists here believe that the Allies know that if they commence the game of rev olution against him, he will instantly play it far more effectively against them. Bo they do not entertain the idea that any such line of policy will be resorted to, on the part of the Allies, as that suggested by the Parisian pamphleteers, who are urging Louis Napo leon and Victoria to declare Poland once more an independent nation. Non-liability of the United State* for Un authorized Purchases ?In answer to an in quiry by letter, pertinent to the subjeot-mat ter, wtf have to say that when a purchase haa been made ostensibly on account of the United Statea, by a person or offioer not duly author ised, the contract is illegal and not binding on the Government. The vendor should as certain the scope of the purchaser's authority before parting with his property: but if the articles purchased have been actually used for proper Government purposes, on due proof of that fact, payment has been made to the amount of their fair value; and a credit has als> been allowed for payments when the agent paying had no Government funds, if the expenditure enured to the benefit of the United States; although there is no lien against the Government for advances made to its use.

I purpose only writing you a beief note to-night. The great match trot between "Felix," owned by Wm. McDonald," and "Joe," belonging to Jamea Corderay, came off this afternoon over the Herring Bun Course, at the appointed hour. 1 be attend ance was very large, and highly respectable. Among those present was Senator Thomas Pratt, of Mary lnnd, and quite a number of distinguished gentlemen fond of the turf. The match was advertised for $2 000 a side, best three in five. I learn, however, that the stakes, in reality up, amounted only to $?2,000. being $1,000 a side. Up to the hour of starting, much confidence was manifested in "Joe," and bets had been pretty free on hiin, probably among the aninkiated. Both hags started off ffcirly; "Felix," however, began to (tain, and kept ahead, winning three straight heats, takingthe purse. Time, as near as I can ascertain it, was: 3.48 for the first and second heat, and for the third 2.4ljtf. This, though fhir, is by no means creditable to either of the horses, and fails to establish their reputation as fast animals. "The race is not always to the awift, nor the battle to the strong." The day was pecu liarly favorable, and the course in fine condition. It is now currently rumored that Rev. Isaac P. Cook, bookseller, stationer, and local Methodist preacner, (and, by the way, a most excellent man,) is to be appointed city collector under the new American municipal administration. I only give this as a current report. If appointed, he will be fully competent to the task, and doubtless give gen eral satisfaction. The duties of the office will in no way interfere with his pastoral labors on Sunday. The only difficulty may be, that man's physical or ganization seems to require rest from labor one day in seven. If, therefore, he should devote the Sab bath to preaching, there might be a constitutional breakdown. Capt. Rollins, commander of the steamer Isabel, reported lost, is still in Baltimore. He feels especial anxiety to hear more definitely from his ship, and entertains some hope that she may yet be safe.

Another steamer is to take the Isabel's place immediately, and continue the trips with the mails. Not one word has been said by our Health Com m'ssioner and City Physician in reference to there being yellowfever on Fell's Point and that region.

Norval Wilson, who believe that the remarks in the Washington correspondence of the Baltimore Sun of yesterday, that he fell at the parsonage of the Foundery church in a fit, caused by the use of opium during the day, is calculated to do Mr. Wilson great injustice, have authorized us to Bay that the report in the main i8 ui correct. The facts in the case are simply these : Mr. Wil son had taken, by order of-a physician, early in the day, a small dose of laudanum, the effects of which had entirely worn off betbre he went to the church.

About Coal.?The New York Journal of Commerce says: , "Newspapers have advise! consumers to defer making their purchases of coal, with a view of compelling dealers to lower their prices. Ihe result has been that very little ooaL has been sold, except to supply current wants, and a comparatively small amount-hae been forwarded from the mines, because there was but little demand. At the same time, while consumers have empty cellar?, large ac cumulations of coal have taken place at tide water, and in some of the city yards YV'e hear it rumored that, as navigation will not hold out more than five or six weeks longer, deal ers will avail themselves of the opportunity to put up prices, and remunerate themselves for past losses. High prices for fuel during the coming winter would be especially provoking, as there is no actual scarcity.

Brutal Pbizb Fight?To* Hrmm, tii Pu gilist, Whipped.?A disgracsfnl pri*e light | took place smt 8t Louis, Mo., on Thursday, the 36th ult., between Tom Hyer, a western noted pugilist, and a bruiser, named Patrick McGowan, for a prise of $3,000. The St. Louis papers state it was supposed that the fight would take plaoe on Bloody Island, opposite St. Louis, and that the island was literally oovered with people, but that the pugilists took a contrary course, and there was not; more than twenty or thirty person* present at the fight. The details of the Tarious rounds, sixty-four in number, are given in the St Louis Democrat in all the flash language of | the ring. Both parties appeared to hare dis played great powers of endurance, and each received what is teehnioally described as "sidewiperi," "mugbreakers/' "blows in the snigger," and "played well into each other's bread baskets, peepers, kissers and proboscis." until, says the Democrat, "both snouts pre sented a beautiful carnation, the ruby run ning freely from taps on the peepers, the heaviest supply of gravy dropping from Tom's es frontis.

The original Tom Hyer is now in New York, lying quite ill, and adhere? to his determination not to enter the ring again. Window Gardening.?There are a few golden rules to be oberved during winter, of which may be enumerated the following : Water all plants that require it in the morn ing; leave no water in the saucer of any plant after the whole has become saturated through; never water by . dribs, but give the whole a good soaking, or the consequence often is that the tog of the mould is wetted, while the lower, oontaining the roots, is dust; sponge over the foliage as often as it becomes dusty; take a pointed stick, and, once in a while, stir the surface of the soil, but not deep enough to disturb the roots, this aots the same part as hoeing in summer, and tends vastly to the plants. Give each plant space enough lor air to circulate around it, if possible; let it have the benefit of a little pure fresh air at times. The returns of the New Orleans custom house show that for the three months past im ports into the city have been forty-five per cent, greater than they were for the same pe riod last year, and the exports over seventy* three per cent, greater.
