' Th* OortRSIfXJlTAL I5STBCCT0U."?Mr. J B. Shurtletf has placed upon our table a lit tle book, designed for children and schools, with the above title. It is really an excel lent book, giving a brief and comprehensive view of the Cnited States and State Govern ments. Although this book is designed for children, there are hundreds of thousands ol ciiisena of this Union who are ignorant of the ncain points of which it treats and could read it, if not with pleasure, at least with profit It deserves a wide circulation, as it gives, in a brief rpace, an ideaof principles and law! by which our common coantry is governed. W42iUHQI02t BBWd AND OOSfllf. Mr. Ed'ertoa oa th? Star?The diaiin guuhed gentlaman from Ohio. (Mr Edgerton,) who look o.'oaaion. yesterday, to rap us over the knuckles for calling the attention of the coanuy, before the opening of the last se?sion of Congress, the efforts whiah we then tbon<ht would be male to influence the lt?gis la^um of the body, in various cases, is our creditor. We -owe him one," inasmuch as it i r?*y elear that the country does not enter tain an opinion of oar labors, similar to hi?, ** expressed in the ccurse cf his speech to which we refer We are by ro means dis posed to quarrel with him for the hard things he said againat us on that occasion. The ro ply of Mr. Eddy to that portion of his re marks, which was involved in his (Mr E's) defense of himself and hia colleaguea on the Letcher committee, embraced more than oui modesty will permit is to say for ourselves. Ihe country is rapidly coming to understand the faet that the Star is a .very useful "insti tution,^ indeed, saying just what its conduc tors think it should say, on public affairs, without the slightest thought of persona oi par-iea. We strive to tell the public th, truth, ar.d although, as all ne^sjajcr men d< in ?heaedHy?. at times we n.ay tccasfonsllj color mailers too highly under th? influence of what F. P. Biair used to style 4 the excitement of composition,"' we do pre sent the public with such an avalanche of truthful news from Washington, as that those to whom the tru:h, the whole truth, and noth ing bat the trnth is distasteful, dread us as a somewhat famous old genUeman of another regiun is said to dread "holy water " In the article from the Star, which Mr Edgaitcn did us the favor to re~d to the liouse yesterday, not a word is aaid aguinat the in l*Sri;y of Cong-eta. it simply embraced a earning to the members, and had the effect, as Mr. Edgerton explained, of fixing public attention with great earnestness on the pro ceedings of Congress It Wt^penaed more than a year ago, and th? circumstances which led us to write it have, for the moat part, paased out of our memory, for we exist in a constant whirl and whis of shifting ciroom stances, making up the Star of the day al must entirely on the occurrences and ideaa afloat in political, Executive, and Congrea aional circles of the Federal metropolis, in the twenty-four boors immediately preceding each iat>ue of our journal. Yeaterday, we published a letter from New Mexico beiring tctimony?evidently heartfelt testimony-of many prominent citiaens of that far ott aection of the confederacy, to the value of our labors as journalists; and, to-day, have the so great pleasure of acknowledging the compliment in volved in what was taTi of as in the Iloaso hall by Mr E. We know that he did not in tend it as a compliment. Yet it, neverthelefs was one?an abiding one in its probable influ ence on the publie mind. We Shall strive to continue to deserve "first rate co.ice3 at the heads of oar friends of All partira ? . - he i urpriae?No one in W ashington, out aido of the Cabinet and the State Department, had the leaet iie?* that the result of the delib erations of Mr. Breckinridge, of Ky , whether or not to accept the Spanish mission, would be his declension of that ao very flattering appointment It was supposed that in asking time to deliberate, he waa playing eff the usual seeming ooynees of the man in publie life. We never knew an appointment to give greater a*tiafaction than hia, to all men of all parties in Congresa The unanimity with w..:"h it w-s bailed^waa, perhaps, unpreoe d* .ted in the history of American pablic affairs, notwithstanding the fact that he is one of the most devoted friends of the Administra tion now ia this city. The mission itself being regarded as one of the very best priass within the President s gift, all supposed that he would accept it Jlia announcement of a different purpose, therefore, camo uj>on the iiouae yes terday almost like an electric shock. Ihe subsequent announcement of the nomi nation and instant affirmation of the Hon. Senator Dodge, of Iowa, to the position made vacant by the declension of Mr. Breckinridge, was as unexpected as the act of Mr. b. We reed hardly aay that hia appointmont waa aa unexpected to himself as that of Mr. Breck laridgc, it being urderstood that the reccipt pi the latter waa instantly followed (by tht I Pretident) by the nomination of the former, Mr. Dodge, being one of the moat popular men in Congress, there was great rejoicing yesterday among the members when the news of his appointment and confirmation first got out. Lie will worthily discharge the duties which ho is to be entrusted, being a man t of great sagacity, energy, urbanity aad expe j rience No better selection for the position i J ?onld possibly have been made. He has la bored faithfully and always " square" in the Democratic party harness, and truly deserves at the hands of President Pierce and the Sen ate, the high compliment involved in his so 11 prompt nomination unsolicited, and his instant ? confirmation by the gentlemen with whom he 1haa so long occupied a seat In the Senate of 11 the United State*. fioorbacks?One of tho last budgets of Ben nett's carrion bird, is as follows . "Mr. ilann has signified his intention to give up hiseffioe of Deputy Secre ary of State in conseauenoe of a misunstanding created between himself and Governor Maroy on the f !? kJC2 ?f V fonner ?????'? letters, as pub li d- ,D Herald a week or two since Mr. Pierce personally called npon Mr Mann, 11 is 5 Uil? * reconsideration of hit letter; this J ?5,h f,Dn 18 and"lit00<1 *s having declined, ? r Wli* m .await the of Mr. Soule * I for further action. This is another s'ep takon U*a[d%the unfolding of the Ostend mysteries. ? which General Pierce is using his best efforts Republic gaxe. It is beleived that if Mann s silence upon this rtfcject could ?M 0a? UP-th? mission to France would be willingly tendered him, even with the certain, ty thit the Senate would not confirm it. Ikon , - the publicity of ilr. Manr/s letters, he reason ably supposed he should have the President's support in opposition to Mr. Marcy. This the s President could not comply with, and now a , I threatened exposure of our foreign and home policy has been promised, and may shortly be expected. In a few days tho President will ?nve to face charges of dupl'city and treachery from Soule, Buchanan, Sickles, Sanders and Mann, and perhaps something may appear from Marcy. This is a fair specimen of the harmony surrounding the President " We have to say that it is falso that there is tho slightest disagreement or misunderstand ing between the Secretary of State and his Assistant The latter entered office without any solicitation direct or indirect on hia par*, in order to aid I he head of the Department, his personal friend, in the discharge cf his arduous and responsible duties; and np to this time, it is wsll known to all tha perioral triends of both, their intercorria rnd reeard for each other has been markel by unvarying cordiality and parsooa! friendship. Iho story about the President's visit to Mr. Marn, the mission to Fraaoe, Ac., 4c , is the merest conglomeration of balderdash falsehood con. cocted to eko out a telling paragraph ima ginable. Bennett has not published a line of truth in tko way of Washington news ccn nected with LLe u>Uo; .>s ?ii>co March 4, 1853, cxcept in iicertiag quotations from tho ?Srar, showing that his mendacious slanders upon t!.e I resident and other prominent gen tlemen in the puolio service, have their ori^-in in the indignant and deserved contempt with which hia impudent application for the mis lion in question was received by the Govern ment of the United States. The Claims Court Proj ct.?The Hon. J. Glancy Jone3, we hear, will endeavor to in duce the Jiouse to dispose of the ccnato's bill to establish the proposed Court for the inve3 tigation of claims on the United State (for the settlement of which the laws make no provi sion) preparatory to action on them by Con gress We fear his effort will he in rain, however necessary it really is, that the sub ject should be speedily and finally disposed of The action of the flouse on tho day be fore yesterday, in permitting him to report tho 11 kill back from the judiciary committee, over the standing rule, evinced the disposition of the body to maic the project or something to t jo same end, law sooner or later. It is clear t> us, aad we are very rarely deceived in such matters, that among the earliest public rneas uree iiiposed of by the next Congress will be an entire change in their system of dealing with private business. 'lhe new plan will [ doubtless be more or less based on the provi sions of the bill reported back by Mr. J Glancy Jones he Declinee ?All are asking why Mr. Breckinridge declined the Spaniah mission, which is admitted on all hands to be so de sirafcle In the eyes of publio men. A wile and five little ones, wero, it strikes us, at the bottom of his declension No gentleman ca? represent the United States efficiently at Mad j r;d and save a dollar of his pay. Nor can a I gentleman in the position (political) at Lome which Mr. B. occupies, vaoate it for years without having years of hard labor to un dergo on his return, to regain it. Mr Breck inridge bids fair to have a m->re brilliant po litical future than any other gentleman of his age in the country of any party. That fact is well understood here, and together with the reasons which we indicate above, are takon by well-informed and sensible persons around us to be the reasons influencing his determi nation in this matter.

Uingman aad Eddy against it In tho ccursc of his remarks, Mr. Edgerton attributed the exoitement existing iu the coun try against alleged combinations, to influ ence the action of Congrss-?, to an article originally published in the'Star, and argued that that article em',raccd unfounded asper sions on the character of members, though writtoa by one of that journal's editors, who occupied a reporter's seat in the House hall. Mr. E. further argued that Col. Colt did not own the factory for the manufacture of his weapons in Connecticut, and that the total SuflAA ?{ hi? proportj was not more than *>350,000, instead or millions as represented. He said further, that gentlemon on the flior had repeated the insinuations against the in tegnty of the House which he had quoted from the fatar, though no one dared to name Mr " ?

Mr. k. lurther cruicked the course of the in vestigating committee, of whioh Mr Lctcher is chairman, with greit soverity, arzuinir to show that iU proceeding were despotic and those of a "star chamber," and grossly im proper Mr Clingmar, tn reply, defend*! theouree of those member! who had argned that there had been efforts to make improper oombina tior.s to effect the enactment of particular bills, contending that the evidence taken by the Letcher 6omm<ttee substantiated the alle gation. He denied that he had made any covert charges whatever against the House, or any member of it, baring said openly and without disguise all that he had said on the subjeot of improper efforts to secure the pas sage of bills. Mr. C also spoke at length against the en actment of the bill under consideration Mr. Eddy replied to that portion oi the re marks of Edgerton referring to the labort of the Letcher committee, of which he (Mr E ) was a member, contending that its business was conducted as that of other committees ol the House is, *nd that it had unfolded testi mony which proved teo clearly that impropei effort* had been essayed to shape the leiri&la. tion of the House The committee, on motion of Mr. Edgerton. struck out the enacting clause of the bill, and then rising, it was reported back to the House as thus amended The question arising on agreeing to th? amendment, it was concurred in?yeas 111 nays 68.
