SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS The editor of the Union seta to rest the ab oard story of Fabeos A Co., that itJ editor and Mr. Sidney Webster were interested in F.'s land 'peculations in Nicaragua; "tying that their declarations on the trial, afforded him the first intimation that bii eld friend, Col. Kin ney, had made him a millionaire landholder in deeding to him 12,000,000 acres of the Met quito grant, and insisting that as he has no disposition to decline such a windfall coming to him entirely unexpectedly, Fabena has done wrong in kecpiDg all knowledge of the fact cf its exutenoe from him up to this time j and, further by demanding that the alleged deedahall forthwith be delivered up to him. The Intel!iz*neer is devoted to newa today T ' WASHINGTON NEIVS AND GOSSIP. The Tariff.?A protectionist correspondent of the Nattunil Intellkgenrer made the fol lowing comments, yesterday, on our laat pre vieus remarks upon the Tariff bill as it recent Iy passed the House : An editori*i article in a city paper of to-lay, bearing the title "The Pending Tariff Bill.'' misstates the character and effect of that bill ID a most objectionable way. The idea it starts is. that"admitting the raw material tree bf duty is such a bounty to the American manufacturer a* to enable him to eharge for his macufacture wbat he pleases This is toj .iistical in theory and false in fact 1 he American manufacturer, by getting ihe raw materia! without paying a duty, can af ford to sell the article, when manufactured, at ? cheaper rate than when exposed to duty, wnue the fore gn manufactured article will enter into competition with it in our markets , *"ie Pr'cciple of the non importation resolution* o: the Colonists of 17?5 and of the tariff act of the i ederal <t .ver^icent The 'ill just passed the House of Representatives has these recommendations 1st.

To dreatn that a law will stand more than a brief season on the statute-book, which, under whatever pretence exacted, amounts Id a re turn to the exploded policy cf " protection,'' (now that the Treasury is groaning with a troublesome surplus, and free-trade principles are momentarily achieving greater popularity) is worse than folly on the part of the manu fac'uring capitalists By the enactment of such a bill, Congress will be but insuring agitation throughout the length and breadth of the lan J, which within two years will result in the passage of a tariff law far more unfa vorable to the interests of manufacturing capital than that which they may secure through the conservative influence of Mr. Hunter and those who share bis ideas, by promptly and frankly acquiescing in his view. The real question is QP Will they continue to strive for unjust protection for a very brief season '?or, like sensible men, will they per mit their Representatives in Congress to deal fairly with the country at large, and thus secure reasonable advantages for themselves for perhaps a quarter of a century? Tha Collins Line ?We have obtained from Mr. Collins the following letter to him from the Hon J. M. Miller, a former United States Senator from New Jersey, now in Europe, and publish it as embracing an apt illustration of the views of our countrymen who are abroad with reference to the policy of abandoning steam communication between Europe and America to the English, which will be involved in permitting the Collins line to go down : I cannot refrain to express, even at this dis tance trom home, my regret and mortification at that illiberal policy which ha* driven yo i to pcti'itn Congress to put an end to the Col lins line of steamer"; and I have not met with an American abroad, nor even an Etiff iit/iman, who does not participate in thisfoel leg Beside the claims which your cnterrrie* ing labors?struggling through years of dis asters to accomplish a great national object? have upon the public, the honor of the Uov eminent is also involved in the final eustain mg of your line of steamers To withdraw now would be to surrender that which we for vears have been laboring to obtain?and are jast about to acquire?to wit: successfnl com petition with England in steam navigation upon the ocean. When you commenced vour line she had complete control of this branch of commercial enterprise Ycur first eff>rt surpassed her in the construction and speed of 'ne ships, leaving her no advantage over us ^ut that of capital and government patronage It then became a national question, and Coa rress, urged on by public sentiment, came to ;rour aid; and although this assistance was comparatively small, it was, with your perse vering enterprise, sufficient to sustain a hop lul competition which would have by this time resulted in a glorious triumph, had it not been for those disasters of the last two years, against which no human foresight could provide. The elements have given to your great rival, and not her own skill, the supremacy for the w n1"2. The lue?tion now is, whether I *if j ' u?derthese accidental 'Mreuinstances abandon our line of steamers as sinkirg shins] or with renewed energy increase, enlarge and strengthen them. It is evident that the only advantages which England has over us, vother than the number of her ships,) have been derived from an im provement in ship building wisely adopted by her, and the accidents referred to. To give up the contest under such circumstance would be disgraceful to America. Again, if Congress permits your line to be withdrawn, what other lire can hope to suc ceed . It is true that private enterprise in America can accomplish much, and our Gov ernment may be able to drito a better bar gain with soice mere adventurer, but it re quires but little foresight to see tbat no indi vidual can fuccessfully compete with a well established English line, and that J.>hn Bui! will derive all the advantago fr>m su-jh a shifting and pennj^aviog policy on oar part. Every one who visits Europe feels that the Loll ins and Lunard lines of steamers have ac quired a national charaoter. They are the Jtrst of their lind. Both na tions take an interest in their suoce^s. This feeling is not one of hostility, but of generous rivalry?each anxious that the race should continue to the end of the course ; and if either or the competitors should break down on the r87.\)Cl j by. acc'dent or by neglect, it would be deeply regreted by the people of both nations. I therefore hope tbat Conere^s may reject your petition of surrender, and by t V and ProPer patronage still keep the Lollies lice afloat. Th? Watrous Impeachmont. ? In order that the position t iken by the Star on this subject may be supported by other evidence, whilst assailed, we give the following remarks, made on the 9th day of the present month, by the Hon. L D Evans,of Texas-a gentleman distinguished for his high sense of honor and clear comprehension: fVAJ,a-?/.can very well understand vhe influence which the remark? of the gen tleinan from South Carolina may have. I know that this is a most impoitant prooied 1 rig?important to JuJge Watrous, and im portant to the people ot Texas. I think that it is due not only to Judge Wdftoui, but to the State of Texas, that this resolution be adopted, and that the judge be placed upon nis trial, and have an opportunity of acquit ting himself before the Senate of the United states it he be innocent. I do not know t > wbern my friend from South Carolina referred <hl whom h? wa* assured of Judge W atrous s honor and hiabmindedness, bu. 1 can ttaie this: that soon after Judge W atrous was made judge of the district court oi xexas, he fell under suspicion, and it be came the "tried opinion of a large majority of the people of Texas that he was engaged in fraudulent land cases. That opinion was indorsed by the Legislature of Texas in 1848, in the resolution which has been read here this morning. There are, I believe, but few of the members of the bar-but very fe* of the citisens of lexas, who do not regard Judge "^^ated in some manner ir 1- so m c^a:,e of litigation, and impropor i ^e.?diDgfr VTt soon after the ?uffitft Th? pexa8.had uken action in the subject. The Committee on the Judieiiiy, whicn was the committee to which the subjei;' whs referred, reported that the testim- ny in support of the charges then made wag not sufficient to sustain an impeachment It was conLclently expected at the time, by the friends of Judge Watrous, that he would re sign his judicial p< skior, but he did not do so. Toe question was first brought up in 1S49, *nd >t ww in 18^2 that the Committee on the Ju diciary reported thero was not evidence to ?upport an impta:hment. ile did not resign >ut the same charges continued to be made him in the Sute ot Tela* 1 uii-ht ay they became stronger, and their truth of ih ' i ^ A*?d in the minds of the members ci?rv\, i**.u,llvUre' tbo n^nda of the judi ? 7 ^e bar of Texas. c.r. tVe%^,iDJrhttigtUd with &D* de?"e to tie effort t? ! ? ariBen subsequent J"52 1 know r/fiP* Judae Watrous in but 1 do chv th-.t u Dg uf.

Jnige Watrous has been a judge in Texas line? her annexation to this Union. Immediately after he was appointed and took hia seat, suspicions became prevalent against bis judicial integri ty They have grown worse and worse, until at this day, is I have already said, there are few, if any, parties in Texas who hare any confidence in him. Under the oircumstances, then, I urge that it is dne to the purity of our courts of justice, due to the administration of justice, due to Judge Watrous himself, that he should be put on his trial. If, on his trial, he shows that the charges against him are the result of preju dice or an unfortunate combination of circvm* stances, then lie will hold his judgeship with claim to the public confidence. But it is a mockery of justice tocontinue in office as judge a man in whom nobody has confidence?a man against whoso continuance as judge the Leg islature and tho bar of Texas remonstrate on testimony, in n>y belief, of the most ample character. These are the only remarks I have to sub mit I know nothing of Judgo Watrous my self I was never in his oourt but once or twice. He is a judge of eminent ability. There is no question of that. But as a Rep resentative ot Texas, I say that it amounts to no court at all to continue Judge Watrous in office with these suspicions attached to his name The Affair in the House Yesterday?be tween Messrs Wright and Sherman?was in a oondition, when we went to presa yesterday, to make it, (according to onr views of proprie ty in such matters,) our duty to refrain from a single allusion to it, not having witnessed it in person. We wero, up to that time, unable to verify to our own satisfaction any particular account of it which we heard. Subsequently we have possessed ourself of the truth of the matter, as follows : Mr. Wright, of Tennosseo, having business with Mr Harris, of Maryland, went to that gentleman's seat, which is in the immediate vicinity of that of Mr. Sherman, and after con versing with Mr. U. for a few moments, turned to leave him. As be did so, Mr. Sherman threw in his faoe a handful of wafers. Where upon, Mr Wright, springing at Mr Sherman, assaulted him ere he was dragged away by Mr Harris, of Maryland, and others who in terfered as soon as possible. The Tariff.?The adoption tf Senator Hun ter's amendments to the House Tariff bill, last night, by a large Senatorial majority, is a source of congratulation to those desir us to see the country at peace over this vexed sub ject. We have every reason to hope that the protectionists of the House will have the good *enso to acquiesce in them cheerfully acd promptly Ihb Naval Court of Inquiry met to day at the usual hour.

A car, manufactured expressly for the ocossion, under the auspices of his personal frend, Robert Ma* graw, Eq , of Baltimore, will be in readiness for his reception. The Fencibles will be accompanied by their excellent band, and every arrangement will be made to do honor to the occasion. We had the pleasure of seeing the inaugu ral suit, made by an old military friend, John Metiger, E q . and which reflects credit upon the maker For the benefit of the fashion able world, we would say that tbe coat is lined with black satio, and the stitching represents the thirty-one State?, with tbe Keystone in the centre. Mr. Buchanan patronises home in dustry, and his choice has fallen upon a worthy citizen of Lancaster Sunday last being tbe 22d of February, the Fencibles attended the Rev. Mr Krotel's First Lutheran church, to hear a disoourse which was delivered by previous arrange ment The text, from Proverbs?The memory of the jast is blessed?was ably and eloquently discussed. Mr Buchanan will not leave until Monday next, when it is expected the Vioe President, Hon. J. C.

The Lancaster Whig says : 14 Mr. Breokinridge will be at Wheatland during the latter part of tbe week, and the Wheatland Club will aid in escorting him and Mr Buchanan to Washington The deputa tion of our oitisens accompanying them will be extraordinarily large.
