* ~ ' WASHINGTON OITYs TUESDAY ^tfrnbfr T, IMS. SPIRIT Of THE MOUNING PRESS. The V>t%nn wants to know " What ujf the South ?" is the matter of thoee recreants who, their friends contend, are " at leaat better Detaoerata than anj Abolitioniat." The Union argnee that contact with Abolitionism insures infection, and brings forward Wilmot, Sumner and Chase, once deemed " at least better l)em ocraU than anj Abolitioniat/' to illustrate its position. It continues: " We would ask, in all sincerity, if the South it In earnest in consent!ng no longer to Insist up on soundness on all the tenets of the national faith, and upon entire fidelity to the organization ?which devotes itself to the support of that faith? There are thousands of able ana noble Democrats at the North, who have sacrificed themselves to their fidel'ty to the whole national creed, and who, If the rule obtains, of requiring them to avow merely 'a better Democracy than that of the Black Republicans/ would carry their districts with ease. " The Integrity of the Democratic creed and the safety of the Democratic organization is more formidably threatened by this Douglas move ment than It has ever beea threatened before; aad It is time that those at the North, who are ready to risk all for the support of this creed and this organization in their purity and integrity, ahor.ld know the sentiment of tbe South in re gard to a movement which?declaring that the squatter* In the Territories may exclude slavery, ai.d that Congress mav Interfere when they apply for admission as States to control and reverse the action which tbe territorial authorities may have taken Is the formation of constitutions?is making ? bold sppf*l to the Democracy throughout the North against the regular Democratic organiza tion as hostile to these dogrras; taking posses sion of the organization wherever thev can, and ?wherever they cannot, bolting and making cotn *?on cause with the opposition. Tbe tone of all *he letters and information which comes to us from that section of the Tnion is aptly con densed in the following sentence from a corres pondent : Their aim Is, and in conversation they do not conceal it, to have.

Tbe Cass-lrissari, it is cxpected, will connect with the Hermann, which, with the Washington, are to ply between Sen Juan and San Francisco. How thev Maek Cigars.?A German import ing bouse at New York lately received an in vote* of real Havana Cigars, which were appraised at the custom bouse at three dollars per thousand. The Importers thought this too bigb, and under their oath the cigars were admitted at one dolla and a half. Their evidence was that not a par ticle of tobacco entered into tbe composition of said cigars, but that they were wholly composed of oak and other leaves, soaked in strong tobacco lye.

" Pat**t Putfoim Balarcbh."?This is the era of Platforms, decidedly. From tbose of Fairbank's, manufactured, we believe, in Ver mont, which are reall y of some utility and never* varying reliability, down to those of stump aspirants for popular favor, they are all made to the end of being very nicely " balanced. ' the mechanical not more for the purposes of ' trade, ' than the political. We were struck with this fact on reading the ''platforms" of Douglas and Lincoln, a* laid down in their re spective replies, in the course of their last dis cussion, to the series of questions each put to the other Douglas, after Qahoodling with Giddings, Hale, Wilson Jt Co ;?after fighting hand to hand with tbem in the Congress of the United States to secure the triumph of the policy on the slavery question for which their party unanimously contended, and after having de nounced the National Administration and the Democratic party, (in the opening of his pres ent canvass,) as traitors to the Constitution and free principles, and in the same breath lauding the Republican party to the skies, as the ex alted patriots of the times, on finding that the latter firmly repudiate his advances, and will not trust him. he (Douglas) has wheeled short about, as will be perceived from the tenor of his so nicely balanced "platform," embraced in his replies to the pungent questions of his competitor. On the other hand, Lincoln, after having for years gone all lengths on the slavery question necessary to secure the support of unadulter ated abolitionism, has suddenly taken the back track, as will be perceived from hit "plat form''?his replies to the questions of his com petitor. Both series of questions were evidently framed with great care to the end of inducing the party questioned to eommit himself to some unpopular doctrine. So far as both the ques tioned are concerned, after the experience the public has had with them, it is evident?both having stultified themselves, when their replies are taken in connection with their late rec ords?that both framed their answers only to catch the popular breeie. In themselve?, their answers, however, evince a much healthier condition of popular sentiment in the North west upon the slavery question, than we sup posed existed there; for they make plain the fact that the Republican party of that region have abandoned, ex necessitate, much4of]their late Abolition ultraisin; while it is not less clear from his answers, that Mr. Douglas finds that, after all, he has nothing to gain in Illi nois by standing as straight up for the policy and views of Messrs Giddings, Hale, Wilson A Co. as throughout the whole of the late ses sion of Congress. The most note-worthy features of both series of answers is, that notwithstanding the fierce ness of their current personal contest, the dif fcrence in their respective " platforms" is very much less than the distant public recently im agined. The questions by Douglas, and answers of Lincoln, were as follows : q 1. I desire to know whethfr Lincoln to-day stands as he did in 1854, in favor of the uncondi tional repeal of the Fugitive Slave Law ? A. I do not now, nor ever did, stand in favor of the unconditional repeal of the Fugitive Slave Law. Q 2. I desire him to answer whether he stand* pledged to-day, aa he did in IH154, against the ad mission of any more slave States into the Union, even if the people want them ? A. 1 do not now, nor ever did, stand pledged against the admission of any mora slave States Into the Union. <1 3. I want to know whether he stands pledged against the admission of a new Slate into the Union with such a constitution as the people of the State may see fit to make ? A. 1 do not stand pledged against the admis sion of a new Stale into the Union, with snch a constitution as the people of that State may see fit to make Q 4. 1 want to know whether he stands to-day pledged to the abolition of slavery in the District of Columbia: A I do not stand plrd^f-d to-day to the aboli tion of slavery in the District of Columbia. Q. 5. 1 desire him to answer whether he stands pledged to the prohibition of the slave trade be tween the different States? A. I do not stand pledged to the prohibition of the slave trade between the different States. q.6 I desire to know whether he stands pltdgt d to prohibit slavery in all the Territories of the li nited States, south ;.s well as north of the Missouri Compromise line? A. I am Impliedly, If not expressly, pledged to a belief In the rt^kt and duty of Congress to prohibit slavery in all United States Territories Q.7. I desire to know whether he is opposed to the acquisition of any more territory, unless slavery Is prohibited therein? A. I am not generally opposed to the honest acquisition of territory; and in any given case 1 would or would not oppose such acquisition, ac cording as 1 might think such acquisition would or would not aggravate the slavery question among ourselves. The questions of Lincoln and answers of Douglas were as follows: 1 If the people of Kansas shall, by means en tirely unobjectionable in all other respects, ;idopt a State Constitution, and ask admission Into the Lnion under it, brjort they have the requisite number of Inhabitants, according to the Knglish bill?ninety-three thousand?would you vote to admit them ? Mr. Douglas said he believed that when a Ter ritory has population enouub for a slave State, she also has enough for a free State; but believes, nevertheless, that no Territory ought to be ad mitted or apply for admission with a less popu lation than uq,uiiu. 2. Can the people of the United States terri tory, In any lawful w?v, against the wish of any citizen of the Ualted States, exclude slavery from their ltiuitA, prior to the formation of a State con stitution ? Mr. Douglas in reply?sald he believed that the people of a Territory can by lawful means pro hibit slavery if they see fit, through their Terri torial Legislature. The Nebraska bill, he said, provided that the Legislature of the Territory should have power over all subjects, consistent with the organic act and the Federal Constitu tion. 3 If the Supreme Court of the United States shall decide tbat States cannot exclude slavery from their limits, are you in favor of acquiescing In, adopting and following such decision as a rule of political action ? Mr Douglas dismissed this interrogatory by saying that he does not believe the Supreme Court would ever dream of such a thing as de Cidmg that no State has the right to aboiUh sla very, and therefore considered the question sim ply absurd, and a vile Imputation upon the cha racter of the Federal Judiciary. t Are you in favor of acquiring additional territory, in disregard of how such acquisition may alter t the nation the nation on the slavery question ' Mr Douglas said he was in favor of the acqui sition of territory when be considered it neces sary or proper, whether the acquisition Is from the North, the South, the East or the West True, be said, we have territory enough for iht present, but we are a growing nation, and in Bf teen years all this territory will be filled up and we mu?t have more. Expansion Is the law of this Republic, and the nation would die if we restrict its limits. Army Oeoers. ? Orders have just been iseaed from the War Department, selecting the 6th infantry (now attached to the Utah depart ment) for service in Oregon and Washington Territories. The regiment will be provisioned with three months' supplies and the necessary transportation, and its commanding officer is authorised to call upon the Staff department, at Fort Bridger, to complete the equipment of the regiment. He is also directed to see tbat no wagon is loaded heavier than 2.000 pounds. The regiment is ordered to march by way of ^<>da Springs, Humboldt river, Ac., to Benicia, California, wbenee they will proeeed to Oregon by water. r 6 The DoLP?!B._FroiB u,# New York of yesterday we Uarn that the U. 8. brig Dolphin, commander J. A MaffiU, from Key Wert, arrived at Quarantine in that city yes terday, and would sail in the afternoon for Boeton, the having put into New York to for ward Captain Townseod, of the slaver P?t. nam, captured by the Dolphin, to Charleston! The slave oaptain will be transferred to the frigate Sabine, sow lying at Quarantine, 4od from tkipifMilo his destination. The Dpi phin, on her arrival at Boston, will be fitted out (it is presumed) for the Paraguay expedi tion. Har officer* and craw were all well. Naval.?The following officer* have been ordered to report at New York, for service on board the steamer Niagara, which ia to carry the negroea rescued from the slaver Echo back to Africa: Captain, John S. Chauncey; Lieutenants, J. R. M Mulloney, E. A. Barnet, A. J. Drake, Wb Nelson, Wed. Mitchell; Surgeon, Edward Hudson ; Assistent Surgeons, Thos. W. Leach, M. P Christian ; Purser, C.

The negroes are to be landed in Liberia, un? der the care of a special agent, and will be sup ported there, by this Government, until they can be returned to their friends. Army Intbi.liof.nck ? The United States steamer Morton passed Nebraska City August 23d, with a large command and freight, princi pally of Government stores for Fort Randall. The command consisted of several oompanies of the seoond infantry, recently on duty at Fort Scott in Kansas. A large force has been conccntrated at Randall, oonsisting of six full companies, as the Indians in that vicinity have become bold in their depredations. The fol lowing is a list of the officers : Capt. N. Lyon, commanding; Major J. Longstreet, Pay De partment; Captain S. W. Crawford, Medica] Staff; Captain W. 8. Gardiner; Lieutenants, Long and Bradley. The troops were in fine health and spirits. Governorship or Nebraska.?It is stated that Governor Richardson, of Illinois, has re signed the Governorship of Nebraska Terri tory, and that a deputation is now on its way to this city to urge the appointment to the va cancy of Col. John A. Parker, of Henrico, Va Colonel Parker filled the office of Regis* ter of Lands in Nebraska sometime ago. and this expression of popular sentiment in his be half is every way creditable and compliment ary. Norfolk Navt Yard.?From a Norfolk letter we take the following paragraph re specting the operations at the Navy Yard near that city : " The two new steamer* now in progress of erection at our navy yard, have made every branch of mechanical industry active. Extraor dinary endeavors are being made to launch them at an early day. What's in the wind ? Ovri two thousand m* n are now working in this yard, and the cry is 'still they come ! ?"

Vermont holds her State election to-day. Hon. F E Spinner has been noininlied for re election to Congress by the Republicans of the seventeenth district of New York. John H. Ryan has been nominated as an oppo sition candidate for Congress in the lirst congres sional district of Pennsylvania, and William Millward in the fourth district. Judge Brockenborough, in a letter to the Rich mond Enquirer, declares a mistake the recent announcement that be declined the use of bis name in connection with a nomination for Gov ernor of Virginia. The People's Party of Delaware have nominated James S Buckmaster for Governor, and Wm R Morris for Congress. The Democratic Mate Convention of Delaware have nominated as can didate for Governor, Dr. William Burton, of Kent county, and for Representative to Congress, Hon Wm G Whltely. Mr. Giddings was not nominated for Congress by the Republicans of the Ashtabula district of Ohio, because he voted with all the rest of the Republicans for the Crittenden-Montgomery bill, and in addltlou voted to increase tue salaries of members of Congress Resolutions were adopted bitting him on both these points. So says the Cincinnati Enquirer. The following are the delegates from Albany to the New York American State Convention: Hon Dwtght Bachelder, John M.

About one hundred persons were on board, imosjj whom were Sen or Irlaarrl the Central American Minister; Joseph L. White, John B Yelverton, the Agent of the Company, and many other gentlemen, and tlsn eeveral la. diea. A band of mimic w*? engaged for the oc casion. anda tine collation was provided Short. I iy after the boat left the pier, the company as sembled In the cabin, and were called to order by Jos. L. White, who presided The first toast Proposed was In honor of "General Irtsarrt, the linister from Central America to the Ubited States " General Irisaari replied in Spanish, and sub stantially as follows : He was very much obliged for the compliment paid to htm as the Minister from Central America; at the same time be could not arrogate to himself any other merit than that of having conscientiously discharged his duty, not only for the benefit of the country he repre sents, but also for the United States. If, how ever, the United States have derived any oenefit In these negotiations, while at the same time Nicaragua has sustained no dishonor, be waa heartily glad of it. He bad no doubt that the work which bad been so auspiciously begun would succeed, that the United States and Nica ragua would be joined in one common Interest. He bad no doubt that the Pacific and Ameilcan Ship Canal Company would meet with great success, and concluded by giving as a toast, " The su cess of the American Pacific Ship Canal Company," which was received witn cheers by the company. Mr. J. B. Purroy, late Brazilian Consul at New York, cave " General. Maximo Jerex, with all the hones we ought to entertain from his liberal and enlightened views at borne." Mr. Purroy paid a high compliment to General Jerez, as a gentleman connected with the liberal party of Nicaragua, who had come accredited to this Government, to co-operate with General Irissari He is connected with the liberal party in Nicaragua, and would do all In his power to promote amicable relations between the two Governments. Mr Johnson proposed the health of Mr. White and Mr. Purroy. Joseph h. White responded. To speak of the tolls, tbe trials, the interventions we have been compelled to meet, would require more time than it would take for this boat to reach the dock fiom which *he started in New York. It was not their object to gain new ground, but to preserve what they already have against the machinations of men of large fortunes, who were ever ready to bribe Nicaragua officials, and who had bribed them?not here, but there. Men whose greedy dispositions and greedy palms were at all times extended for money, for which they were willing to sacrifice tbe honor and tbe interests of their country, and those vested rights which they bad pledged to companies.. We have had to fight against these men, against tbe State of Costa Rica, against flllibusters, and against the mnchl nations of steamship commodores, who were willing to expend their wealth, not in charity, but to rob those who are willinc to extend the influence, enterprise and energy of this couutry in opening new lines of communication, not by what they have above, In tbe brain, but by what they have In their pocket. We have carried this contest, with the help of good and true men?and when I speak of men I mean this man, laying bis hand on Irlssari?(cheers)?who are ready, at all times, to stand up for justice and to go for tbe right. He thrice tendered bis resig nation to bis government, on tbe ground that they were willing to do Injustice. We have bad to fight again<>t Costa Rica, against (filibusters. A Voice?"And against Monsieur Belly." Yes. we have been swallowed up in the great Frencn stomach, and have been vomited up again like Jonah on dryland, though here we "re not dry. [Great laughter.J That Is what a Hoosier, where I once lived, would call a *pontn nitiom.i sentiment, and propose that we drink it. We have fought Stales, filibusters, Commodores, momy, machinations, lies, and we have won and, as General Taylor would say, if there was anybody in the world, or the rest of mankind, who desired to enter the field, we are ready to light them. The speech was received with laughter and applause. Mr. Purroy paid a high compliment to Sennr Irissari and Mr. White, as the two persons who bad borne the brunt of this battle. After referring to the vacillating course pursued by the press on the subject, be gave : The Press of New York?Which always some bow got out tbe truth. The sentiment was responded to by one of the reporters, wishing success to the enterprise. A lady proposed the following: Tbe Atlantic Cable and tbe Nicaragua Transit: May' tbe continuity of either never cease. The sentiment was received with three cheers. A gentleman proposed the health of John B. Yelverton, Esq , the agent of the Company, to whose business talents he paid a hi^h compli ment. Mr. Yelverton replied The boat soon after reached Pier No. 1, (after a short circuit up the North river,) and tbe compa ny separated, much delighted with tbe excursion. |Y ^-NOTICE ?a special meeting of the Hiber Ikjf ? nia Ciub is to be hel?i at their hall, on WEDNfcSOA v K VE M N G , September 8th.

Parsons, charged with firing the warehouse of 8 S Masters A Son, was exam ined at the Mayor's office yesterday, at 9 o'clock, before Justice Price. The following abstract of the testimony we take from the Gazette : George Phillips testified that, on Sunday night, he was standing on the corner of Union st. and the alley on which the warehouse was situated; that about two minutes before the alarm of fire was given, Thos. Parsons came running up the alley from the direction of the warehouse; came up to him, and he (witness) asked Parsons what was the matter; Parsons answered, Nothing, and then ran to the corner of Cameron and Union st* ; after remaining on the corner a few moments, he cried fire, and then came running up to witness again, and asked him where the fire was; wlt ne?t> then looked up and saw a faint light throngh the dormer window of the warehouse; directed Parsons's attention to it, and left him, to look for an officer; knows It was Parsons, be has the same clothes on now that he had on then; Parsons had no coat on, a light hat and dark pantaloons. Charles Dudley testified tint, on Sunday night, while coming down King street with a friend, met Thomas Parsons at the corner of King and Alfred streets, and that Parsons walked with them to the Sun engine house, stopping a few moments at the corner of King and Washington streets; that after remaining toere about half an honr he heard the cry of fire, proceeding appa rently from the wharf; that Parson* was with him then, and bad been since be left the corner of King and Alfred streets; there was no one at the engine bouse but witness, and the two who came with bim Thom-is Penn testified that, on Sunday night, when walkiiij.' near the Gas VVo'ki, be beard tbe cry of fire, and went along Water street to Prln j cess, and across the vacant lot there, and when near the corner of I'nion and Princess streets, he ?aw a man running from 'he dirertlon of the fire: that when tbe man saw him, he ran faster, ana he (witness) tried to catch him, but did not come witaiii 15 feet of him; be was dressed in a dark suit: thinks he was a man; does not recollect having seen Parsons that night. Parsons wa* sent to jail to await a further ex amination before the County Court, which Is now io session. The County Court yesterday having beard alt tbe testimony in the case, discharged Wm Ages, free negro, who wa* under examination charged with tbe murder of Catharine Ages, his wife. The release from jail of Victoria Moss, com mitted in default of recognizance as a witness In tbe case of Trammel and Smith, was ordered This morning, up to the time of closing this letter, no business of importance has occupitd tbe time of the Justices The annual meeting of the Alexandria, Lo-idon and Hampshire Railroad takes place at tbe office of the Company to-day.
