WASHINGTON CITY: MONDAY J?lT ar, 1MT. SPIRIT OF THE MORNING PRESS. The luteHtzfucfr, to-day, moralizes over the propensity of the American people to change their organic laws, holding that, as " the world Is governed too much,'' so it is reformed too mach; at least this quarter it. While admit ting that some constitutional changes as they hare been made in the United States are sub stantial reforms, the editor is evidently of opin ion that most of them have been, after the fash ion of the French in such matters, reforms downwards or backwards, lie is also evidently under the impressiun that it would be well for the United States, if their population would copy after the English in the latter's thought fulness in such matters and recpect for and at tachment to institutions and laws that havo been found to work well. The Untou acknowledges the recciptof a let ter from an old subscriber in Alabama, speak ing 'o gl"w'ng terms of Senator Clay of that State, and takes occasion to say, with truth and justice : "It is scarcely four years since Mr. Clay was elected to the Senate of the United States from Alabama, and at the time of entering that body he was. probably, its youngest member. Bear ing a name widely known to the country by the eminent public services of his gifted father, his talents, bis integrity, and his earnest, eloquent support of the principles of the democratic party, have widened and deepened the favorable im pression which followed his first efforts in the Senate, and afforded a brilliant example, in his instance at least, that high intellectual gifts and exalted patriotism are heredita.y. Having repre sented with unyielding fidelity the material in terests an well as the social and political sympa thies of the people of his own State, he has, as a legitimate consequence, secured the unbounded ? ontldence of the democracy of Alabama, and es tablished for himself a national reputation of the highest order."

It is claimed that a precocious child of 12 years of age, the daughter of Rev. Mr. Peck, an Episcopal clergyman, wrote the opening and closing part of the clever jtu esprit, and sub sequently lost the manuscript in an omnibus: the inference being that it was found by Mr. Wm. Allen Butler, who ad d-d to and altered it. Mr Butler, in reply says, that lie had not previously claimed the authorship of the piece, but that his name now being coupled with the charge of steal ing th*? literary production of a young lady *' not out of her teens,'- he declares that the poem was written by him. and that no line or thought in it was suggested to him or derived by him from any other person or sonrce. and that any assertion to the contrary is entirely false." The Ciscistiati Tragedy ? Loefner, who filled his wife in Cincinnati, and afterwards murdered M r. Horton, and then cut hisowu throat and wrists, is still living and likely to recover. He still persists, Hie Cincinnati Commercial says, through the medium of a pencil and slate, in the ?tatement whirh h?* made on the afternoon cf the murder, insisting that he had discovered Mr. Horton and his wife in a criminal art. and so far from feeling repentance for what he has done, be glories in his revenge, and professes that he would pursue the same artiori were he aj/ain Pla<-ed in like eirrnmstanres Previous to killin" his wife he had an altercation with her. in the ? ours*- of whirh she struck him with the blade of a knife across the nos*\ and there is a slight cut which would appear to endorse this part "of the story (If then, according to his own statement torrrd her to swallow poison. after which he strangled her with a handkerchief |fe appears to gloat with savage delight in the reminiscences or his crimes, and while giving his penciled de tail a fitndish grin illumines his saturnine count enance He has a nervous, bilious terperamerit, a aark swarthy complexion; more resembling that of a Spaniard th?ui a German, and a powerful well developed frame. * rom circumstances which we have gleaned it appears to t* probable that he is, aiid"has been for some time, partially deranged, owing to a se vere hlow which he received on the head a few years since.

It holds that in United State*'Territories *>cietj[ is reduced to fir?t principles. Or, in other words, thatelch little community in them may adopt what government it please*, of course eortemning any higher authority in itt* midst, than its own will for the time being. Because the General Government did not interfere against the vigilance committee of San Fran eisco a year ago. therefore, the Tribune holds, the people of Lawrence have a right to assume that it may not exercise legal authority over them. To maintain that authority, that journal argues, will be rank and naked despotism. Nevertheless, it shrewdly advises its friends there to bow to it, if the General Government essays to sustain it by the application of the means provided by law to suppress insurrec tions?the army of the United States. AN c have seen the Tribune previously mani fest evidence that its conductors were aware that they were defending a bad cause ; but in all they said in their elaborate article of Fri day last on the current Lawrence imbroglio, there ran a vein of consciousness that they were defending what they knew to be wrong such as we never before knew them to exhibit to the public eye. Thus, they are compelled to scout the idea that it is best for society that there should be any government whatever, any where. except the will of the strongest in each locality for the time being. They would re duce society to its original elements, and have no government. In fact, they would have anarchy, mob rule?and, above all, Massachu setts rule?in the Territory, rather than the rule of its own people under the restraints of laws made by the whole of them for the govern ment of the whole. We cannot conceive of a better illustration of the fact that the doctrines of Republican party i*m scout the authority of all law that might rostrain the prejudices of any little community or check the gratification of the bad passions of any individual, than is involved in the subter fuge* and bold declarations of the T> ibtnic, in essaying to justify the inhabitants of Lawrence in assuming to set aside the chartcr granted to their town by the Territorial Legislature, and to make a diflerent one for themselves. Under the influence of such teaching as that of the Tribune on Friday last, it is not wonderful that the laws of the United States are not re spected and human life is not regarded as worth a second thought, where the violation of the former and the sacrifice of the latter may min ister to the momentary gratification of the preju dices of the abolitionized communities at the North. The state of the city of New York of late?its condition of anarchy?is a fair sequence to the doctrines taught by journalists of the Tribune school. To be sure, they urgo them for the benefit of abolitionism only, and are intense sticklers for the supremacy of law when out raged communities transgress it by way of re pelling attacks upon their virtual rights and the principles of the Government of the United States, enacted into laws by abolition legisla tors for the benefit of abolitionism. But such outbreaks are legitimate consequences of their conduct in instilling into the popular mind that laws which fail to please its taste for the time being, and ofliccrs of the law who may not be popular, may be set at defiance, at will. The Contest in Alabama ?We arc extreme, ly glad to perceive that the Know-Nothing party in Alabama have cast all their hopes of success in the election about to come off in that State upon abuse of the Administration cn account of its Kansas policy?of course, the while, be laboring Governor AV alker with intense earnest ness?that very devil, with hoofs, horns and a tail. We rejoice that that party's journals in that State are assuming to be the exponents and defenders of the opposition to the Adminis tration's conduct and policy in this case; be cause, that they do so. will assure the Demo crats of Alabama, all of whom, with few and insignificant exceptions, indeed, are ultraStates Rights men. that the pretence that the rights and interests of the Sonth are assailed by the Administration in this case, is not worth a pinch of snuff. They know that in the last quarter of a century not an occasion has arisen wherein it was possible for Southern politicians to oppose the rights and interests of the South, that those who now assume to be her chief and chosen de tenders in Alabama have not labored with zeal against them. They will comprehend at a glance the utter hollowncss of all this hue and cry in their State against the policy of carrying out in Kansas, to the letter, the great principle of the Kansas-Nebraska act, from the fact that those objecting to it so strenuously in their midst, as involving a sacrifice of the South, have never been known to fail totakeground against the South when she has really been assailed. The Montgomery Mill, the regular opposi. tion organ at Montgomery, the State seat of gov ernment, c?mes to us full of mock warnings toits readers against the efforts of the Administra tion the Democracy of Alabama and the Hon Mr. Dowdell. to betray the South in this Kan* *'1> u,atter Those who know the course of the Mul an l its supporters upon Southern rights questions, will well nigh split their sides with laughter over the utter humbuggery of the pre tence that the cause of the South is about to be sacrificed in Kansas, as made plain by that journal's turning Southern champion so sud denly. Verily, no better proof that the present Kansas muss throughout the South id simply a " Good enough Morgan," could be conceived. The Thi th Fitlv Spoke*.?The Raleigh (N. C.) Standard, having been misinformed originally, was among the first Southern Demo cratic journals to take ground against the course of Governor Walker in Kansas. Now, it is earnestly engaged in exposing the fact that the current war iu the South on him and on the policy of the Administration in the Territory, is a sheer trick of desperate and defeated party leaders, ever ready to join hands with the ene mies of the South. Its able and manly expo sures of the true tendency of the course of the opposition in North Carolina is aptly illustrated in the following brief extract from its last issue, wherein it lays before its readers, in a few sen tences^ the real points involved in the content over Kansas matters now going on in the slave bolding States : K ab?l1U,i?n P1**"** of the North and of \alT,mafriJ. ? the Ad,?'"'?tr?tion and Ine Rational Democratic party xtsensible for intro i Vh 7. ^.7 .?

The company were the guests of the Secretary of the Navy. Among them, by the-by, were Mr. Kenry, the President's Pri vate Secretary ; Mi*s Lane, his niece; and the Misses Reynolds, of Lancaster, now on a vis"! at the Executive Mansion ; Mr. and Miss Bleck, the son and daughter of the Attorney Oeners'; Miss Saunders, the step-daughter of Postmas ter General Brown ; officers of the Navy and a few others. As they reached the Navy Yard, they were received with a salute from the ma rine force stationed at the Washington barracks, and Secretary Toncey with the honors (salute from cannon) due to his position as the head cf the service. All the Naval officers attached to the station were present in full uniform, als,3 which aided in making the reception ceremo nies v sry fine. Embarking on the little Naval steamer Wa ter Witch, they enjoyed an excursion to Mount Vernon, where they spent some time, ere re cmbarking for the city. Dur ng their stay there, the Marine Band performed the celebra ted dirge II Trovntore, over the tomb of Wash ington. A Naval salute was fired from the steamer as they took their departure from Mount Vernon, and another opposite Fort Washington. Tbe ladies, we hear, enjoyed the trip greatly. About thirty guns were touched off by them, in the course of firing the salutes. A fine collation was, of course, provided on the steamer, which was duly discussed, and com mended by all on board. The music of the Ma rine |Band served greatly to heighten the en joyment of the occasion The President and Secretary of State were compelled, by the pres sure of busiuess, to declinc joining the happy company.

We have every reason to believe that the final conclusion oI the labors of these tribu nals will be expedited rather than delayed by compliance with their suggestion, nnd hope that the Secretary, seeing the matter in the same light, will authorize the courts to adjourn over for a brief }?eriod. Naval Courts or Inquiry.?Before Court No. 1, to-day. the case of ex-Lieut. Dulany was continued, and Dr. Nelson, Lieut. Kimberly, U. S. N., acd Capt.

Stanton, of Pittsburg, acting as counsel) and Commander Young and Lieut, lluger were examined on behalf of the Govern, nient. Before Court No. 3, Commander William V. Taylor and Lieut. J. J. Aliny were examined on the Government's behalf in the case of Com. inander Long, in which the testimony will prob ably be closed to morrow The President, we hear, designs leaving Washington for Bedford Springs in a few days to be absent from the seat of government for, perhaps, ten days. He will be accompanied by his niece, Miss Lane, and Miss Black, the accomplished daughter of the Attorney Gene ral. We apprehend that the precise time when he will take his departure for this so necessary trip of brief relaxation from the labors of his exacting position, will depend on the condition of the public business, though we know no rea son to anticipate that it will not be as we men tion above.

Our British flies, to the 11th Inst., have been received and we extract from them tome interest ing details of foreign news. tub ?DW>rao rot*n<nit? cass. The thai of Madeleise Smith on a charge of murdering, at Glasgow. her lover, one Pierre bmtle L Angelier. by adiumistering to htm ar senic on three different occasions. in order that she might marry another man, has just concluded at Edinburgh in a verdict of " not guilty" on the flrst count, which charged her with administer ing arsenic to the deceased prior to the 20th of February last, and ?? not proven" on the subse quent counts, which charged her with the same crime ou the 2*2d or 23d of February, and on the 23d or 23d of March. The interest which the trial has excited throughout Great Britain is al most without a parallel Tn her criminal annals Upon the return of the jury, after an absence of twenty minutes, the Lord Justice Clerk intimated that it mu?t be understood that there must be no expression of feeling by the audience, whatever the verdict. The names of the jury having l?een called, Mr. Moffat, of the High School, was announced as Chancellor, and read the verdict as follows : 44 In regard to the flrst count, the jury, by a ma jority, And a verdict of not guilty. 41 in regard to the second count, the jury find, by a majority, a verdict of not proven. 44 In regard to the third count, the jury, by a majority, tind a verdict of not proven." The Scotsman savs: 44 Instantly, on the an nouncement of these tast words, a vehement burst of cheering came from the audience, especially from the galleries, which was again and again renewed with increasing loudness in spite of the efforta of the judge and the officers of the court." The excitement produced outside the court when the verdict became known was immense. Whilst the Chancellor was reading the verdict the prisoner gazed at the jury steadily, but with no signs of agitation ; and when the verdict of 4 Not proven," on the third charge was pro nounced, her head slightly fell, her face broke into a bright but somewhat agitated smile, and her hand was warmly grasped by her agent (Mr. Kanken) on one side, and the gaol matron on the other?expressions of sympathy which seemed to affect her more deeply than any incident of the nine davs' trial. The l<ord Justice Clerk, in thanking the jury for their services (and intimating that they would be relieved from similar duties for live years.) stated that they would have perceived from what he had said to them that his own opinions quite coincided with the conclusion at which they had arrived. The prisoner was ihen dismissed from the bar. The flrst count charged the prisoner with ad ministering arsenic to Emile L'Angelier on the 19th or 2uthof February; the second and third counts charged her with administering arsenic to him on the CM or "-'".id of February, and on the -2d or 23d of March. So far as these two last charges are concerned, the verdict of 44 Not proven" is not an acquital?not a declaration on the part of the jury or her innocence, but of their lielief that the evidence is not sufficient to war rant a conviction, Fnd-'r this verdict (which is peculiar to Scottish law) the prisoner is liable at any time, if fresh evidence against her can be pro cured, to be again arrested and tried. Interesting as were the proceedings on the earlier days of the trial of Miss Madeleine Smith, those on Saturday (savs the Caledonian Mercury) in this respect suriiassed them all. On the pre vious occasions the relatives, friends, and ac quaintances of the deceased were examined?per sons who had been his confldential friends, and others who had beheld his face only once In their lives; on this occasion the dead man himself, as it were, and the girl accused of causing his death were placed In the witness box. Letters written in the silence of the night, when no eye save One l*eheld the hand that traced the words, were read in a crowded hall of judgment, with a multitude of strangers listening eagerly to what was in tended for the eye and ear of one alone. Burning eflusions in which, with the veriest extravagance of Italian passion, every possible term of endear ment was lavished on the object of affection ; wild appeal*, in which the mind appeared to be verg ing on distraction, were read coldly and unsyni pathisingly by the aged clerk of the court, for the purpose of being used as evidence against the writer. No wonder that Miss Smith's veil was down when she entered the court that day ; during the reading of the letters she stooped forward, and leaning her elbow on the railings upraised her hand so as partly to shield her race. But soon she appeared comparatively relieved, for her prosecutors were merciful, and in most instances the merest skeleton of the selected letters was given. Only those effusions were read in full which were absolutely necessary for the case ; of numliers only a few sentences were read, and all objectionable expressions, all gross and indeli cate allusions, were carefully and studiously omitted. In some instances, we understand, par ticular words were altered in the reading, in or der that the feelings of the prisoner might not be overwhelmed by such a terrible publicity. The reading of these letters was a battle fl?ld, upon which eve.ry inch of ground was contested Ev ery assumed doubt about the dates, every half rubbed postmark, formed a newground on which the counsel for the defence took up their position and maintained the light to the last. The audi ence were in a painful state of excitement. When the letter was read which, after receiving Min noch s tirst nrojwsal, Miss Smith wrote to L'An gellier breaking oil' their engagement, a general stir took place in the court, which continued in creasing till the time when the letter to Minnoch was read, and t he others, almost cotemporaneous, in which her relations with her former lover were apparently resumed. It is stated that during the proceedings on Monday Miss Smith appeared in very good spir its. and frequently gave way to suppressed laugh ter when L Adgelier:s great vanity was spoken From the Ayrshire Express we extract the fol lowing description of Miss Smithes appearance during the trial: In the midst of all this excitement, passing through the eager crowd from and to the prison, seated at the bar with hundreds of eyes fixed steadily upon her, Madeleine Smith is the only unmoved, cool personage to be seen. From the flrst moment to the last she has preserved that undaunted, defiant attitude of perfect repose which has struck every spectator with astonish ment. She passes from the cab to the court-room, or rather tothecell beneath the dock, with the air of a belle entering a ball room. She ascends the narrow staircase leading into the dock with a cool, jaunty air, an unveiled countenance, the same perpetual smile, or smirk rather, for it lacks all the elements of a genuine smile; the same healthy glow of color, and the same confldent ease. The female turnkey at her side looks much more of the prisoner; for. while she is still, and scarce ever lifts her eyes. Miss Smith never ceases surveying all that goes on around her, watching every word of every witness, returning every stare with compound interest, glancing every second minute at the down-turned eyes in the side gal lery, and even turning right round upon the re porters immediately liehind her, to see how they get along with the uote-taking which is carrying her name and deeds into every British home. When judges and jurymen retire lor lunch, she refuses even so much as a small packet of sand wiches. Others may l?e thirstv amid the hot ex citement. but when the female attendant oilers her a glass of water she will not have It. There she sits, refusing meat and drink, or a moment's retirement in her cell, with her smelling-bottle in her dainty little hand, which she never uses a splendid specimen of physical power, and of such endurance as only a will of terrible strength could attain.

Sir J I'akington gave notice of his intention to question the government witli reference to the Chinese war and the employment of troops in In dia. In the House of Lords the Earl of Malmsbury gave notice on behalf of Lord Derby that on the motion for the second reading of the Oaths (Jew ish) bill, the latter would move that the bill be read that day six months. Lord Palinerston, in reply to an inquiry, stated : that the government was giving its attention to the projected supply of negroes from Africa to the French West Indies?a measure which he thought must degenerate into the slave-trade, so far as Africa was concerned. He promised that, should the spirit of existing treaties be violated, the French government should at once be notified of the fact, with a view to a correction of the evil. A public meeting was held in Liverpool on the t?th inst., for the purpose of hearing and welcom ing Hon. Neal Dow. The attendance was large, and the guest received a warm greeting, mixed, however, with a few hisses. Resolutions in favor of prohibition and complimenting Mr. Dow were adopted Prince Louis Napoleon was making his marine tour around the British isles. He arrived at Dub lin on the 9th. The Paris Assemble*; Nationale has been sus pended for two months on account of au offensive article upon the elections. The Estafette has likewise received a warning.
