Tlie Utuon oriticiies the letter of Mr. flournoy. the Know Nothing candidate for Governor of Virgicia, contending that Lad ho lived in those days he " would have spared us the ' pisgkacc ' of a Lafayette, a Dc kalb, a kosciu.-ko, and a Montgomery." The same paper also comments on what the National InteMgtHc" said on Saturday last upon the execution of Estraiapcs, saying: "There in an excuse for this last expedient of the // Ulbgtncer, however. It is anxious to conciliate the present crusado upon the foreign-born citiscn, an 1 for tho moment gen trouiSy to forget that at least one of its editors first s:.w the light in a distant country ; and so it appeals to this sentiment to " make more definite " the naturaliiuticn laws! We cd *iso our cotemporary to beware. It maybe well for it to prepare for the future as well as it may ; hut it should take care, lest the very effort it i? making to court Spanish influence and to screen Spanish arrogance may seem tc etaad in rather awkard contrast eveu wi:h its Man dish men's and c quetries to the new party that l^ki to cxj'.usive Americanism as the end-ail of political science and the cure-nil of political errors." Tho Intelligencer quotes from the Union a paragraph,saying: ' Not a steamer arrives in tho United States from Europe or the Spanish Colonic? which dce? n >t bring with it further intimation that tne Jubl.c Mind, the Pres.;, tho Cortes, the Cabinet, and the Colonial Agents of Spain are, if possible, more than ever hostile to this Confederacy." Tho editor insists that thcro is eo truth in it. and, in the course of bis remarks on the rut/jeot. says : tl\\ e Jciuapd to know if this declaration is tr^e As ir is no? boras ont by Ray p*ib!ic ac coiiau whi *h bare rewi'.d us from Europe or clsewh-rre, it can only be foundsd on irforma t.ou derived through privau unofficial chaa i.els.or through c&;i?l informa'ton rtceired at tUe Department cf Stato. Now, we have reason to believe that no despatches have been receive! from irp.iin whi^h give any color to the Union's assertion. We believe, further, that the unpublished despatches in the Do partmeat of btate would contradiot the feiate iii^nt, as the lately published despatches them selves do; and that the declaration is only a part cf the reckltss gsits to foment a war be tween the two countries, to suoscrrs party in terests. to which we yesterday britfly alluded Lrging the Secretary of State to affirm oi contradict the Uuioa's declaration officially, the Intelligencer a'so says: " Let the public, then. be aathoritctively in formed how the caw stan Is, and whether the ?' jvernmtat is in po-sessios of any proofs of tie truth of a staement so important. If, contrary to all publi: evidence. j.nd contrary *? ^tror^; interest snd peculiar motive's wiich L pain ha; to cultivate the most frierdn reiation* with the United S at?s. it ghall c';c?r!y -ppear that her Government cherish^ a Wosnle sentiment toward us, and has com mitted or meditate* any willful insuhorag gression on the honor and rights ?f tho ccuti try. *0 be,* cur bellicose neighbor to bclicvi that we fhall lo qui.; as ready to soo sucl hofciiie kcla an J furpoc?d replied by warii k< measure* as tiia Una irself.

WASIHKGTON SEWS AMD GOSSIP. The Kansns F.lsct:on ?According to nil the accounts on the subject which Lave reached us, every member chosen in the recent eles* tion cf a Territorial Legislature for Kansas, is a supporter of tbe Nebraska b it; a "pro slavery man," aa dubbed by bij opponents. The Abolitionists, with the New York Tri bune at tbeir head, already set up the cry of foul play, oharging that thousand of Mis souriats voted in ttie election who were not entitled bo to do. From the returns from the nominal abolition precinct of Lawrence, it strikes us that a good portion of those so pious ly sent out by the aid societies to frame the institution* of tho Territory to suit Massachu setts and Connecticut, r&ther than the customs, requirements and advantages of the region in which Kansas is situated, have taken the lib erty to vote as they pleased, after getting out there by the favor of Abolitionism. We doubt seriously whether there wero more illegal votes cast on the one side than on tho other; though it is, of course, alleged that the so dis tasteful result to those who speoalated in so-called philanthropy in this business, brought about by the votes of citiiens of Mis souri. Thousands who had been citizens of that State, doubtless, did their share in the work, though at the time of doing it, they were quite as legally citiiens of Kansas as any of those who were sent there through charity and a desiro to meddle in the domestic mat ters of a far distant eommunity. Nay, they were as legally entitled to vote there as any others whatever. Every man of them ha4 loeated his claim or purchased land (pre-emption rights) there from those who had loeated original claims. They had all takes steps to move tbeir families and effec'a from their late homes in Missouri, and were alsent from the Territory only with the view of winding up their business previous to conveying their people and property over to their new homos. It was a common under, standing among them to get back to the Terri tory iu time to take part in choosing their Legislature. Iience the fast that they returned iu so largo parties only a day or so before the polls were opened. But for the cffait in New England to mould the institutions of Kansas to suit herself, it strikes ue that there would have been very slight prcspect that slavery would, in tho end, be adopted there. They (New England) have generated a controversy ia which it has been made apparent that no other eeotion cf the Far W?t ts so well suited for slave lnbor as that, and in which also the blood of Mirsouri has been so stirred up as to induce thousands cf pro slavery men to settlo in Kan?a? U but to head cfT the schemes cf abolitionism, who would not otherwise have dreamed of going thither ; while others who do not go in person do their best to induce others to go, in crder to make it very sure that tbe constitution which the proposed now State adopts in time, shall not contain features tha' will materially lessen the value of slave p:op cry in Missouri. A Misapprehension.?It turns out that these public officerj, who, writing from Fort Leaven worth, represented that there were thousands at families '?squatted" on the tract of teiri tory known us tho ^Delaware Trust' lands, were greatly mistaken. The CtrnmltsioDer of Indian Affairs has re csntly caused a corpuscf the whites who aie on those lands to be taken, and the report of the result of that investigation (which bears date on the 27th of February last) snys that there-are bnt forty housos iu all. worth on an average bu: $100, in the so-called city of Leavenworth, and two hundred souls; two trading houses and two dwcllisgs, occupied ? by the traders, their iamilies and their as sistance iu the so called tcvrn of Ojaukee; and but a single house and family in the city of Whitfield: This report goes on to say that the only Signs besides, of the presonce ol the white man on these trust lands, aro here and thero huts or cabins, such as are buiit to mark the loca tion of tha claims of those who have under tiken, illegally, to "prcspect" in the territ>ry in question, soma of which are occupied by the builders It will bo rocollected that an effort was made last winter to induce Congress to on a change of the treaty witJ the Delawares, by which these lands should be given up to the speculator and squatter, the latter being little more than the tool of the former in this case. I he ohief argument in favor of this action by the Government that came to us in western newspapers representing the interests of the speculators, was the well nigh ntter impossi bility of driving off the lands the thousands of white families that have settled upon them, and the crucity end hardships which that coureo would infliot on them. The official survey (faking of the census) mentioned above, shows the eatire want of foundation of the re port- to which wa refer. The lands in ques tion are very valuable. This Government is cider a p'edge to the Delawarea to hold them in trust and eventually to dispose of them for their benefit only, and the speculators are doing their best to take them by the right of the sharpest and stroEgest. Our impression is thai they will come cut of the contest with out carrying their point. The Business Mon of Washington.?It is a note-worthy fact, that the late trying season in monetary affairs in all quarters of the' oountry, and more especially at the North, passed over tho business men in Washington and loft them unscathcd, with the exception cf two houses only. E sewhere, not only mer- ? chants, but manufacturers end employing mechanics tumblod over by scores ere the crisis wa? passed. This tells well for the en ergy and forethought of the great mass of these among us, who in the conduct of their business necessarily ask and give credit. The exparience of the season in question will how ever, doubtless havo the effeot of modifying the credit system as in vogue here not a little. Such a result will not enly be bcnelicial to these in Washington who give credit, but also to the tone of sooiety at large. There never was abettor model than that of John Randolph, " Pay as you go ; pay as you go, sir." Rigid adbererce to it very rarely fails to bring wealth, we care not how small the means of the man who practices on that rule may be, on commencing life. The Sound Lacs ?A communication in a recent number cf iho JVational Intelligencer, signed "Observer," urging Denmark's claim of legal right to exact the "Sound dues," against which this Government protests, has just fallen under our notice. Its conclusions are, of course, in favor of Denmark, and against the United States, u involved in the controversy in question. As they all hinge on ?rroneouj premises, they art all wrong, m a matter of course. Th? writer bases his argu ment on the fact that the Straits are not more than three milos, a marine league, wide any where, which, he contends, gives Denmark municipal jurisdiction ever them?makes them her property. He is deficient in his reading of international law, or ho would remember that where a Straits conneots two open seas, as in this case the Atlantic and Baltic, it is, undor international law, free to the navigation of the world, it matters not what may be its breadth. This fact demolishes his argument, acd, of course, his conclusions. Bis fears that Prussia may be indignant on account of our efforts to obtain our rights from Tenmark in this matter are groundless; as Prussia hap pens to be as deeply interested in the triumph of our positions as we are! This is a feature in the case well known to every diplomatist in Washington. The Arctic Expedition*?-The following offi cers are to be attached to fcieut. Hartstein's Arctic expedition: Lieutenant Charles C. Simm9, to command the tender. Passed Midshipmen Watson Smith, William S. Lovell, and Joseph P. Fyffe, and First As sistant Engineer Uarman Newell. Mr. S. P. Griflia, formerly a passed midship man in the navy, and in charge ef the Hescue in the Amerioan expedition te the Arctic un der Lieut. De Ilaven, having volunteered his services, is to be attached to the expedition in the capacity of master's mate. Passod Midshipman Lovell was also in the expedition nnder Lieut. De Haven. Tonnago.?The following wts the tonnage of the port of San Francisco on the 31st of December, as the Collector's rOturns: Registered tonnage................56.015.64 Enrolled and licensed .28,549.18 Licensed under 20 tons 2,750.10 Total..... 87,344.92 Of the above tonnage there were employed in steam navigation : Registered tonnage * 10,063.63 Unrolled and licensed 13,361.18 Total in steam navigation 23,424.81 The above affords a very gratifying exhibi tion of the increasing importance of our young city of the Far West. ADcclension ?We understand that Capt. Benham of tho U. S. Engineers, to wh?m tke president tendered the pout of Major of the 10th Regiment of infantry, one of the newly crcated corps, yesterday declined that position. Capt. B. has long been employed in official duties in connection with the Coast Surrey, which is perhaps more agreable and desira ble than any other duty to which an officer of tho army can be assigned, can be. We thus account for this gentleman's declcnsion of pi omotion, the deciie and ambition of nearly all of his brother officers. Clerical Changes, Appointment*, &c ?R. E. Whitiock, promoted from first class clerk ship to second class clerkship in the Sixth Auditor's tffise, in :he Place of li. W. Varden, removed. Salary, $1,400 per annum.

To go oa the Expedition.?W e near tnat a younger son of Judge Kane, cf Philadolphia, Dr. John K. Kane, who ha3 recently gradu ated with the highest honors at ihe University (medical) of Pennsylvania, is to go out as the surgeon on one of the ships of the expedition so soon to start for the Arctic seas in search of theunfortunalo expedition of his elder brother, The 2?oii in tho Councils ?The reader will find in oar local columns tc-day aa account ol the "high time " in joint meeting last night between Aldermen Borrows and E7ans, ovei Know Nothingifm and kindred topics.

Mr. Jacob A. Shindel, of Lebanon, Pa , was to be examined to-day for appointment to a similar position. We take it for granted that bis appointment will be made out ere cun down. Tho United States of Slo^p-of-war Fal mouth has been heard of at Gonaivos, (Island of St. Domirgo.) at the Department.

New Church Organization?Capt. liaktr? Serenade?Alarlets, 4^ Gkorgktowm, April 10,1855. On last Sabbath afternoon, the now Metho dist church in West Goorgetown was regularly organised. Rev. Mr. Speakes, the pastor, delivered quite an in'oresting and impressive address. Several short addresses were also made by lay members. The ocoaenn was one of great solemnity, and all ho participated in the services soemsd to be actuated by feel ings and purposes of no ordinary character. At tho conclusion of the services, twenty-live person? come forward and united themselves with this Btatien, and last night nine others joined. This organisation has been made un der very tavorable oiicumstanses. They have already a flourishing Sabbath school of seme eighty odd scholars, and a fine house of wor ship rapidly approaching eomplotion. They have also been favored with a talented youvg ministers, whose ministrations have given uni versal satisfaction. The steamer Columbia, Capt. Harper, from Baltimere, brouaht to our city this morning are unu'ually heavy freight, which argues woll for the business of merchants generally. Capt. Samuel Baker, formerly cf the steamer Salem, has gone to New York to take charge of the steamer which has been purchased by the Alexandria and Potomac Company, which is intended to ply as a passenger and freight boat betweon tho District and the various landings on tho Potomac to its mouth. Capt. Baker is a gentleman in every sense of the word, as woll as a careful and skillful captain, aad will dwbUon giyo uniforial satisfaction to thoie whom he has gone to serve in another quarter. Yesterday being Easter Monday, it was ob served as a holiday by the Catholics generally and many Protestants in this city. Fisher's fine band of music serenaded many of our citizens last night, their tervioes having been engaged by several yonng men; until fear o'oloek this morning, the strains of mnsio reverberated through oar streets. Flour market firm at $10. Sales of wheat at $2 45, for white and red. Spectator. BALTIMORE CORRESPONDENCE. Baltimore, April 9,1855. This is one of the Easter holidays, and many of our eitiiens are observing it in the way of abstaining from business. The streets and sidewalks, daring the afternoon, were throng* ed with thousands, who were spcotators to the various fire companies as they moved along, fully manned and equipped, to make, aj is customary on Easter Monday, the annual test of their apparatus, In seeing which oaa throw farthest. These exhibitions are usually look ed to with muoh interest by those oonneoted with the fire department. All passed eff quietly and in order, each apparently satisfied frith their own achievements. Some of the engines threw an incredible diatance. Balti more firemen are hard to beat. There seems to hang a mystery over the abandonment at sea of the fhip James Ches ton, belonging to this port. The mate and crew are now in this city, but Capt. White has not yet arrivod from Wilmington, where he was last heard from The accounts thus far published are by no means satisfactory. Capt. W. was highly esteemed, and it will require unequivcoal testimony to reinstate him in bi? former position. The mutical performances at mest of our Catholic churches, and especially at the Calh edral. were exceedingly attractive, and tne ceremonies very imposing. Easter Sunday is a great day in Baltimore, as well with adults as egg-picking juveniles. I have recently seen several firmers and others from different parts of the country, all of whom concur in representing the spring crone as very cheering. They are somewhat backward in appearance, but this is considered favorable to an abundant harvest. Thank Providence for such promising indications that we may hope for full orops, for breadstuff* are now rising to bo high a price that they are almoat beyond the reach of those Jtho con sume them. Wheat is selling at $2 40 to$2 50 a $2.58; flour, $10 a $11.50; corn. 95c. a $1. These are enormous prices, placing tho articles almost beyond the reach of porsnns who get moderate salaries. What adds to tho dilemma is the fa:t that everything else is high in pro portion. If prices go much higher, I tear there will be trouble.

The ;.ar'y ^ n' t bcou there long before they is alleged, insulted by the fishermen assembling ingargs, shouting "hurra for Q en Corchand singing Spanish songj. and ma king other demonstration? cf defiance. The Spaniards then madeun eff-jrt to take po*tea aion ot the buggy of Major B. and Mr. R. Proctor, and meeting with re-is'.ance from tho&a gentlemen they attacked them with bowie ? knives. This led to a general Sghr, all the Americans assembled and fired revolvers sev eral time?, when the Sp;tniarda!retreated, but soon appeared with guns, and fired as much : from ambush as possible. The result waa, that fire or six Spaniards wero shot and badly wounded, while on the American side only one person, an Irishman, who took sides with the Americans was injured.
