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. Douglas delegate* for
ati the Northwestern States, and if tb?yfall to
be recognised by, or to control the Charleston
Convention, still to run their man, as tbe Kinder
book philosophers and Buffalo heretics did In
1948 ' They mean, it seems, to force their dele
gations Into the Charleston Convention and com
pel the nomination of their candidate; or else to
retire, and put him before tbe people as the
Northern Democratic candidate, sound on all
questions but the Lecompton ? abomination' and
tne Dred t*cott ' decision against popular sove
reignty* They calculate on thus defeating any
election by the people, In order that the three
highest candidates voted for, from which the
Howe is required by the constitution to make a
choice, shall be the Cbarles'on nominee, the reg
ular opposition nominee, and the man who Is ? at
leas' a better Democrat than Lincoln ' Holding
the balance of power, one or the other parties in
v'Lief, it is eipected, will be obliged to take up
Mr Douglas?tbe Democracy to take him as ? at
least a better Democrat than Seward,' or else tbe
opposition to take biin as ' at least a better Re
publican than tbe slave-drivers'candidate nom
inated at Charleston.*'

prospects of success, In Fauquier, Culpeper,

of Virginia heretofore devoted chiefly to the

have also made successful experiments this
season.
Liscsty or thi Paiss is Mexico ?The Gov
ernment of Mexico does not have a very exalted
opinion of the freedom of tbe press. It has just
fined tbe editor of tbe Mexican Extraordinary
Si,OtO, and ordered him not to publish any polit
ical news of the country, on pain of more seveie
penalties?banishment, imprisonment, or some
thing of tbe kind All of tbe other independent
journals have been silenced, but none fined.
Tbe grand military encampment, near

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.

WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP.
" 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

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.

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

thousand m* n are now working in this yard, and
the cry is 'still they come ! ?"
Ordered.?Ou application of the A.?sistant
Quartermaster at Alberquerque, for a Board of
Inquiry to examine into and report on the loss,
damage, and deficiency, of any of the public
stores delivered at that station, the command
ing officer stationed there has been ordered to
organise such a Board.
Contradicted.?The report that the Secre
tary of the Navy closed a contract yesterday
for four steamers of the Cromwell line, New
York, to serve in the Paraguay expedition, is
contradicted. Negotiations for the steamers
alluded to are said to be in progress,

ny Inaugurated their first movement towards
opening the route by an excursion down the Bay
of New York on Saturday last, on board of the
steamboat Cass-Irisarrl, formerly the American
Eagle. 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,

The case of Thos. 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

The annual meeting of the Alexandria, Lo-idon
