The Union this morning u devoted, for the next part, to a review of the action of the President in making his appointments to the four new regimen a. The Intelligencer thinks that the Pennsyl vania Pre?j are mistaken in insginiog that the tariff will be increased rather than re duced at the next session of Congrees The Sentinel regardj the combination that has just carried the New Hamj shire eleotion as a mere spoils party ; and urges the Demo orati of Virginia, one and all, to vote against the Know Nothings. WAS 11 LUTON SEWS All! GOSSIP. The Company Appointment! in the Four Ifew Kegiments?w ere finally determined on last evening afrer we went to jress We present them. to-d.iy, to the reaiors of the Star. There could not have been less than an aggregate of a thousand application' for these eommi.-.-dons The task of choosing from that enormous list was, therefore, a difficult and very delicate one. We presume that half those urgel upon the President were at ged on political grounds. That is. e iher the can did a. ea or those urging them, cliiued to be worthy ol the President s consideration in making his stieoti .ns, oj the ground that ihey hate political rightj to his favor To say that b4s selections reflect credit on his judgment and sincere patriotism is not speaking in suf ficiently strong terms cf his action No one can read the brief history of the services of the "gaictre I" without being satisfied that he has nobly vindicated the principle of ri,;ht and ez^ot justice in this action; ignoring the (to us) s > ? lioua doctrine that kissing goes by favor, in the Army of tbe United States Ever; in .u *h'>s? nama ii f^und in the list baj hjnor aid j and efficiently served his country on ;he tented-field, and ban. by his gall a ntrj* and food conduct, proved hiuisolf worthy o; the p-xition tj whioh he has been appointed iko preseure upon the President to induce htm to appoint porsons of another class musl have teen immense.

Our Army offi:er?, as a class, aj men of energy, chivalry, and character, Inferior to no otbe body of uien of the aime number in the wor'd; and the President has, indeed, nobly vindicated hi? own leputation for integrity of purpo-e, in determining that, ?o far as iu h.m li-s, tne Army ol the Unite? ?tatei shall continue to be the best in the world.

Neutral Right*.?If there is any point in the whole range of our relations with foreign Governments concerning which wo feel sensi live, it is with reference to our rights as neu trala. In the infancy of our Government, in our drat alliance with Franoe, the United States insisted on the principle that free ships should make free go< d?. The intellects of Jefferson and Madison placed this right be yond doubt Roaisting ita infringement, we declared war against Great Britain in 1812. Our, tonnage ia now erjual to that of our oo n. mercial rival. Last year, the latter, impelled by her necessities as involved in the war with Russia, asaented to the correetneas of this great principle, stipulating, however, that she gavo her assent to it but for the time being. It remains fer this Government to take due eare that she shall never fly from the positious she ha* aaacmed for her temporary oonvenienoe; and we doubt not that it (the United States Government) will succeed in incorporating in interuational law, as acknowledged by all the powers of the world, this groat Amerioan prin eiplo?for such it is beyond all question. The Bounty Land Law ?The suooess of the present heads of the different bureaus of the Executive Departments in systematiiing their respective offices and bringing up the baok work, had the effeet of ruining tha business of four fif ths of those formely finding full em ployment at this point in prosecuting claims and ssttling the aooounts of persons at a dis tance. Indeed, for a the claims agency business, in connection with the Departments In th's city, has had little more than a nomi nal existence. The law of the last session granting baunty land to somo 300,000 indi viduals has, however, suddenly revived the business, as may bo seen by the agenta' ad vertisements in the newspapers It ia thought by those who understand the matter fully, that they (the agents) will net more than half a mlU lion of dollars in fees, for their services in preparing papers, Ac., to be presented under thf? law Of this large sum at leasi half will go into the pockets of our felluw citisan* en gaged is this busioega., mo#t whom are ia all respects worthy of the good fortune to re. calt to them from the enactment of this new bounty land lit, California ..and Titles ?In issuing pateatl for land* is California, wbioh m*j have been la dispute between the Government and other parties, the role adopted bj theG-neral Land Office in this city, under the r<quiremer.ts of the law, is to refuse to issue a patrnt until tie courts shall have finally disposed of the ques tions in iesue. Thus, when A gains a dispu'ed ? tract of land before the Board for the adj uli oation of land olaims, he cannot get his patent until that deoision has been acted upen,' first by the United States District Court for Cali fornia. and then oonfirmed by the Supreme Court of the Unfted?States, in case the ousted or defeated party sees prot?er to appeal. In ease of a dispute between individuals as to conflicting or over-lapping boundary lines of tracts which have been confirmed to them, re speotively, by the eourts, the General Land Office can only be interdioted from issuing a patent by filing an injunction to restrain the Commissioner from eo doing, under the pro visions of the act of 1851. The Hon John Y- Mason.?All the friends of this gentleman will be glad to hear that his healih is so rapidly recovering as to lead him to hope that he will eventually, and not long henoe, be able to resume the full dis charge of the funotiocs of American Minister at Paris. Such is the tenor o( letters te his immediate friends in this city. He does net, at present, eontemplate returning to the United States, being inspirited by the hope to wbioh we refer above The Construction of the Extension of the Treasury Department ?We observed thii morning Government engineers and their ss sistanta engaged in the work of 1 ?.vir.? off the ground to commence the eor.a'r. ?'tinn of ibe extension of the Tretsury J) p nniet t So the work on it is soon ?o l-e c-jiui- e?c<d.

LATER F&OM AUSTRALIA The Mining Districts in a state of Revolu tion?A Pitched Battle Fought?Twelve Men Killed In the California Plaoer Times, received a New York yesterday morning by the Northen Light, we have eighteen days later news I appears that affairs in Australia were tendinj towards revolution.

A serious outbreak had oocurred a* Call a rat. of which we have only room to give th< leading particulars Commisiioners Rede and Johnson have be?r imprudent enough to approach the miners and demand their license* with drawn sworda and fixed bayonets, backed by a large force of po lice. This aroused the vengeaaoe of the lat ter,-who mustered in great numbers on tb< 30th of November, when a skirmish ensued and agsin on the 9th of December, when at ii regular buttle was fought. Seven hundrec sol tiers and one hundred and fifty mounted troopers proceeded to the Eureka osmp, anc fired on the insurgents; about twelve wen killed and several wounded The exaotnum ber could not be ascertained. Two soldieis were killed on the spot, severe wounded, four or five of whom subsequently died It also rumored that fifteen mount ed troupers had been shot from tbe bush. I reward of ?500 is offered for the body of on< the ringleaders, dead or alive. The minen hate resolved to pay no more licenses, anc overy thing leads to the supposition that thi mining districts arc in an absolute state o revolution. The Illustrious Goner. ?
