Soma tima ago wa published a communica tion from the pen of one who has been among them, embracing what struck us as the only teasible plan for the proper management of affairs in that quarter, that haa fallen under oor notice before or since. So loug as they haTe th9 jurifjt nothing can be ('one among them by tha authority of the United States, a* done elsewhere This fact is patent. Just so long will Brlgham Young's fiats be ca.rieu out. rather than the laws ofthe United States The plan to which we refer contemplates the breaking up of the territorial government of Utah by extending the boundirios of all the other Territories, and California, laying adja cent to Utah, so that the oity of Salt Lake shall actually stand in New Mexico, Califor nia, Washington, or Oregon Territory, and also in Kansas or Nebraska We mtut divide in this case, te conquer. The alternative is clearly an independent government within the limits of the United Statas. with an even, tual war of extermination Spoliation ?Yesterday's commendable ac tion cf the Senate, in refusing to set aside an important General Appropriation bill for the consideration of the Prenoh Spoliation mea sure, hag caused much chattering of teeth, indeod. among those outside who proclaim themselves interested in its passage. There can. however, be no doubt that a majority of ftie Senate stand ready to pass it at an early d.?y. It is expected that they will strike out much or all of the virtually new bill of the House, and r ungate in lieu thereof, something more nearly in accordance with the bill as it originally passed the Senate. The dread, however, which is now evidently felt in this case, has reference to an expected veto. Up to Tory recently, it was clear that the mana gers of the affair we.-? quite sanguine that they would be able to overcome thi scruples which all admit the President entertains on tkii.Mbjsst It is now clear, however, that some stumbling block has unexpectedly arisen in their path to that ache'vement Now, wo are unable to give an opinion wo?th a fig a* to the probabilities of a veto, not having of j late Lad time to attend closely to the signs in the matter fbating around in the govern mental heriaon. We only know that they are ominous of a veto, from thoir effect upon the parties immediately interested who are labor ing jealously to ward off tho droadod Bxecu tive fiat Poet Office Building*. 4c . in Baltimore ? We can see no good reason why the bill pro posed by Senator Pearce, for the purohase ot saitable quarters for Post Office and United States Courts purposes in Baltimore, should not speedily become a law. It is notorious that in all the considerable cities of the Union, the accommodations of tho Government for such purposes are of an inferior charao. tor, and, when rented, invariably cost vast f j 1 y more than they should?always muoh more > I tbmn *ould be a fair interost on the purchase Jofa proper site, the erection of a well arranged building and the cost of its insurance and keeping it in repair Iioally, we know no more economical disposition that can be made of a portion of the existing surplus, than in providing in all the gTeat cities of the country saitable post office and court accommodations for the requirements of the public service It has not been done heretofore, only becauss more pressing necessities for the money on hand have always been staring Congress in the face. We presume that no one will fail to realis? the importance of, if possible, pro viding permanent accommodations of the kind we mdioato in so large a city as Baltimuro Tho Minnesota Bailroad ?The public will find in the notion of the last three or four days in the House, on territorial business ample proof of the correctness of our intima tion given a month ago, that 'he session would not end without the entire defeat of the schemes by which it has been essayed to se eure for the New York Company owning the charter for tha Minnesota railroad, against which Congress has set its face. These sonemes involved a bogus law suit, whioh will be duly exposed in all its enormity in the approaching decision up it by the Supreme Court of tho United fctates. In passing the bill virtually to repeal all action ef the Min nesota Legislature in favor of that company, the House has simply carried oat its action | repealing the bill donating to the said com pany lands in aid of the construction of their proposed railroad. The company have pur sued many devious paths, evidently to arrive, after great expense and anxiety, at tho most remarkable nonplus over enoountored by gentlemen in pursuit of an appropriation un i der circumstanoes of great difficulty. So they | go! * The Miuioa to Paris ?Perceiving that many of the writers from Washington for the distant press, have gone off half-cocked after a mere joke in the Star of the day before yesterday, we have to say that their story 'hat Mr Dudley Mann is talked of in offioinl circles for a successor to Mr John Y. Mason, is the merest gammon oonceivable. Mr. Mann', we feel well assured, will remain in bis pre sent place until the end of the term of his chief. The original story was, to our own knowledge manufactured in the the g^pat ball of Willard's hotel by a knot of wag*, by way of testing the credulity of a paf ncular in dividual. We refer thus to its orig.n, only by way of forcibly illustrating to the outside world, how baseless muoh of tho "Washington news 'of the dis;antpress really is. Extra per diem under Acta of March 8, 1819, aud August 4, 1864. to Soldi en on Fatigue Duty.?It is held iu the settlenesit aeeoants at the Treasury Department, that when a qua, term aster sergeant acts simply a* th? ?aperintendent of laborers, Ac., ha is em. r>oj?d in his staff oapaoity, and is not entitled 0J e extra per diem provided for ooostant labor by the aets of I8l? and 1854. But when heisnot bound by his obligation as a soldier to labor as a Mechanic, and if he performs ln.tfcat oapaoity for the beneflt of the Government, and is mustered fer that purpose la conformity with the regulation! of the Quartermaster's Department, (par. 1015,) he is entitled to the extra compensation. The Hon Henry A. Wiae ?We trust that our neighbors of Alexandria will do their best to aooommodate with places at their aeet ing on Saturday nigh', the host of distinguish ed gentleman from &1I quarters of the Union who propose to go thither in the hope of beicg able to bear the expected speech of the Hon. Henry A. Wise. Not only do a large number of members ofJCongress propose to be present, but also some hundred or more strangers of distinction who are now among us. CONOBCflNONAL. In the Senate, ye?terdayr after we went to press, the Army Appropriation bill was further considered and passed. Shortly afterwards they adjourned without the further transaction of bu?;ne?s. In the Home, the bill to establish the office ot Surveyor General of Utah, and to grant lands to actual settlers, was taken up as re ported from the Committee of the Whole on on the state ot the Union, with a recommenda tion to strike out the enacting clause Tbe bill and amendment were then debated by Messrs Jones of Tenn , Phelps, Hamilton, Henson, Bernhieel. Disney, Haven, and Mc Mullin ; and, on motion of Mr D.nney it was finally so amended as simply to establish the surveyor generalship of Ltah, aad to grant lands for educational purposes to tbe Territo ry. The said bill waB then passed. Mr Houston then p oposed to go into Com mittee of the Whole on tne tariff question. But after conversation, in which that gen tleman, Mr Appleton, and others participated, it was in'ormally agreed to postpone the con sideration of his motion until Wednesday next, at one p. m , when its fate should be considered a test vote as to tbe proposed amendment of the tariff at this session. Soon afterwards the iiou^e adjourned. Proce< ding* ?f To Day.

A bill granting bounty lands to Susan Pal mer, widow of Lieut. Palmar, deceased, and a bill for the relief of Joseph Girard, a courier in the revolutionary war, were severally passed The bill for the relief of the captors of the armed brig Gen Armstrong came up, which was not disposed of as we went to press. In the House, after disposing of preliminary business, the army appropriation bill, as re turned amended from the Senate, was recom mitted to the Committee on Ways and Means Messrs.

C'old Weather and close of Navigation. QKoRttBTOWN, Feb. 1, 1855. Tbe Vigilant Fire Company had, last night, quite an interesting and spirited meeting at tbe opening of their library Wit and good humor flowed in abundance. We regret to say, howerer, that the number of books in the library are far short of what they ought to be, considering all the oircumstances. The Vigilant is the only company in our city upon which our citiiens have to depend for the pro tection of their property in case of a Are, and as it has never failed heretofore to render cheerfully good serviee whenever necessity required, and as it is composed almost entirely of men of limited means, we think our more fortunate cititens would be but consulting their own interests by contributing liberally towards the library whieh they are trying to collectfor the men'al improvement of the mem bers. Doubtless nothing would teod in a greater degree to cement the company to gether, and cause it at all times to be strong, and composed of such persons as would do honor to tbe calling of a fireman We learn frtm the gentlemanly and deserv edly popular Collector of our Canal Company, at tbe Georgetown station, (Mr. Matthews,) that the water will be let off to day for the purpose of making <ome repairs, and removing] some bars and other obstructions which it will require some three weeks to accomplish The following statistics, which we believe are in the main eorrect. more likely to be a trifle under the actual amounts than above, will show that tbe manufacture of flour in onr city is an item of trade of considerable more magnitude than most persons would imagine Far the Ave months ending Deeember 31st, there was manufactured into flour 340 000 bushels of wheat, at an average cost of $1 70 per bushel, making in the aggregate $578,000 expended for wheat. This amount of wheat, allowing 4i bushels to the barrel of flour, would give 75,556 barrels, whioh at an aver age price of $3 50 per barrel, would yield tbe handsome sum of $642 226 The offerings of Beef Cattle at Drover's Kent this week, has amounted to 190 head which was purchased by District butehers a? $4 1RJ? $5.75 on tbe hoof, equal to #3 37sh$11.o0 net. Sheep 4a5 cents per lb. ilegs $7 75 The weather continues very cold Our river ia blockel up tight by ice. Business of svery kind is very slack. No change in the flour and grain market since our last.

Albxasoru, Feb. I, 1855. The Young Men's Christian Association of }ur city are busily engaged in their philan Lhropic enterprise. The Librarian, Mr. John UcKeniie, acknowledges the receipt of some liberal denations in books, and solicits further sontri buttons Washington Hall is crowded nightly to wit ness the performances of the Boon Children In scenes froui King Lear, Macbeth, Romeo ind Juliet, The Honeymoon and the School tor Scanaal, they are winning golden opinions from all sorts of people. The lady managers of the late fair repre tenting four of the Christian congregations of >ur oity, have united their portion of the re ceipts from that benifloent enterprise into one fund, and organised themselves into the 1 Union Benevolent Society*" A meeting in furtherance of this laudable objeot will be aeld at the Relief Engine House, this after noon at 3 o'clock. Thus commenees another t>eno?ceat enterprise. The Potomac Steamboat Company meet at he same place to-night, when, the organisa tion will be completed and arrangements nade to secure a stiamer in time for the spring jade. Tbe Sentinel says that " Mr. James Green ntends erecting a large addition to the Man tion House, kept by Mr. A. G. Newton, which eill oceupy the open area or yard in front of he ' Herbert House,'known as * Braddook's headquarters,' and is to correspond with the Sront or western view of the present bnilding >n Fairfax street. The first story will be landsomely arranged for stores, and the re naindor appropriated to hotel purpooee. It till cost, perhaps, $40,000. Workmen are iow busily engaged in excavating for the foundation." A writer iu the Gesette of this morning no icee that a large number of Alexandria, K?., etters are advertised by the postmaster of ilexandria, La., and suggests that the Do part men t issue an order requiring the adver tising list of either office to be exhibited in tke lobby of the other. Thif if a moet excel lent suggestion. and Mr 0. 8 H. deeeives the public thanki for proposing it. Mr. John Withers, of thin eity, be* ad dressed a letter to the editora of the Virginia (Sentinel, which appears in thet paper tbii uiorricg, in reply to the reeent comments of the Glor>?. Mr. W. says the Qlo^e wilfully publishes false statement* through malice; that the debts of Selden, Wither* A Co ought to be paid, but that ssme time should be al lowed the firm to dispose of their assets with out too great sacrifice; that individually be ia only as a surety for theirm, and their assets ma?t be exhausted before he ean be called upon; that he has applied a large amount of his private fortune to satisfy claims against the firm; that it is not in his power to pay vhe debts of the firm at once; that he is not worth a million of dollars; never has claimed to be worth over $300,000; that there are other partners equally bound to pay as he; that it is simply impossible for him to pay all these olaims The Sentinel introduoes this letter with a pretty long article, and thinks that Mr. Withers means to do what is right, and that no kindly man will deny him the opportunity Julien gives a concert to-morrow night and the Moant Vernon ttvards announce a birth night bail on the evening of the 22d Ami We are in receipt of the Whig Almanac for 1855, published by Qreely and McElratb, New York. It is a most useful publioation. oontaining a large amount of politioal infor mation, such as is found in no other single book- Its circulation, we are told, is im mense. We have the annual report, for tho past year, of the Treasurer of the State of New York Murphy A Co., Baltimore, have tent us the "Metropolitan*' for February. It is a well conducted Catholic publication, and oontains a slashing article on "Political Religionism " IntJi*n Fight in Texas The San Antonio Ledger extra, of the 18th ult., furnishes the following account of a fight between a party of rangers and a party of Camanche and Mexioans, at the orossing of the Peoos, in which six Indians and one Mex ican were killed, and several were eaptured. The letter oontaining the intelligence is dated January 8: The command of Major Simonson, consisting of riflemen and Texas mounted voluuteers encamped on tt^*mght of the 6th at Oak Creek, and yeaterda^ morning the advance guard fell in jritb*sAmod party of Caman che Indians and M%jiren? at the crossing of the Pecoe, and succeeded in killing six of the Indians, and capturing the balance, with a considerable number of mules aLd ponies. Capt. Travis's oompany participated in the affair, while that of Captain Henry's went in pursuit of Indians that esoaped by way of a ravine. From the captured party, it was ascertained that nineteeu Indians had gone down the day before with fifty head of mules. Capt. Walk er's oompany was despatched in pursuit, and have returned without success. Itissuppcsed that the Indians were aware of our pretence, and made a forced travel to effect escape Yesterday was an exoiting day. After the affair of the morning, we marched to .his poi Jt, five miles from the soene of action, and [ spent the balance of the day in roping Indian horses and mules, a number of which were [ found in the mountains near by The captive Mexicans, after tairg disarmed of their bows and arrows, were released. * They all had on moccasins, and were armed like Indians, and their packs contained buffa lo robes and Mexican blankets, and it is sup posed that they were Mexican Indian traders Resting at this point one day, we will take np the line of travel for new and more exciting scenes From appearances, and what haa been ascertained, much service in the fighting line may yet be the lot of the command, although they have so short ,a time to serve. The health of the troops is generally good, and the oon dition of their animals first rate. Joe Shillington has sent us the Knick erbocker Magaiine for February, and Frank Leslie's Msg^sine o?
