The Kinney Ixpeditioi Bubble ?We hare taken occasion to ascertain that tbe Attorney General had no more to do with originating the recent a:re?t and pr eecutien cf Meiirs. Kinney ard Fabens than the man in tbe moon. We ftate these facta if bat for the mischievous purpose of heightening the "poth eration" into which the New York press h?ve worked themselves in tboir efforts to blow up the Kinney expedition bubble, their "soap suds" being altogether baseless storiss. I' will be recollected that all thes^ New York filibustering.expedition newepapwg were not long since abu^lDg ^e A'.torney General for alleged sympathy and diiect complicity with ? Lis humbug, and also wih the Quitman schema against Cuba Their sudden chnnge of :une upon it with as little for its justifica tion as they had for their original and con t-ary position, shows thit their conductors bare little fixed character, which rarely ex ists where there is a want of fixed f u. peso and views on pubiio auairs. Bnt we hRvt jjet now to deal with the fuisc pretences on various points upon which these journals are puffing op the speculation One is, tbat the Nicaraguan government fa ves it, it being alleged that they made the grant, Ac. Now the JSicarnguan minister, who alone is authorized to represent the views of his government in this country, fixes false hood on the front of that allegation, not only through tbe pre?s. but officially to the goru n mint here It was al*o pretendod that this Government favored this speculation, became its commer cial agent at San Juan was in il; and we .nay not fail here to add, that we have every rea Sun to believe that thia queer hallucination was, in a measure, at the bottom of the turn things took in the trial of the case before Judge Ingersol. However, we have taken oc caeicn to explode that roorback. So there is nothing left of it. Another cf these roorbacks is as follows: " He has taken prisoner a young, beautiful and accomplished belle of tbe Fifth avenue, 11 flesh and blood angel, said to be literally worth her weight in g Id, to say nothing ?? diamond-, stocks ana roal es ate. and she hns agreed, "for better or worse," to try tbe name and fortunes of Col. Kinney, expedition and all." \\ e fancy that Col. Kinney must have been nettled beyond expression at this lest tu> per haps net silliest of the Kinney expedition roorbacks. For there happens to be in Texab a lady who some ytars ago took " for better or for worse," ' the name and fortunes of Cul Kinney"?Mfa. Herbert, a widowed daughter of Judge *\ ebb, late of Florida?a lady who previous to her marriage to Ccl K. was "the you: g, beautiful, and accomplished belle" of Galveston, Houston, Acs'in. Ac Who if the Inventor of the McCormick Reaper??The great majority of our country men ha*e little idea of the ins and outs and quirks and turns of tue business of patentees. Hardly an invention which proves 'o be of great importanse is patented, except by and through the mental labors of divers persons. That is, in moft esses the patentee who sue ceeds in introducing his patented article into general use, is much more apt to be the com piler of other men's thoughts 'han the origi nator of a great idea or ccmoinition of me chanicai ideas of his own The fact is forcibly brought to our mind on learning tbat Isaac J. Hite, of White Post, ^ a , has n<>w before the Patent Office an application for a patent for his original "combination of a raker's seat and the reel, in reaping mac hit cs " McCor mick obtained a patent for a reaper in 1834, 'bich has run out. In 1844, we recollec:, our old friend Thos. P. Jones?previously the head of the patent bureau?applied for a patent (as agent) for this combination of Mr Hite, depositing the model in the Patent Office. But objections were made by Commissioner Ellsworth to the g-ant of the patent for Hite's invention, which soon resulted into a peremp tory refusal, notwithstanding Dr. Jones' effort? to bring a'j>ut a different result. In 1847, when new men were in the office, and tbe original model cf Hite had long re ir ~.ined hid hy a rrultitude of specimens of ail sorts of inventions by our countrymen, McCor mick obtained a patent for the combina tion of the roe! and raker s seat, located and arranged as described or the ?quivalent thereof. Tbia, in fact, ie but tbe application tc hi* (McCormick's} old machine of the prin ciple or improvement for which Hite had been previously denieJ a patent, and without whi.-h tbe machine would have been practically use lees. Tbe McCormick patent, against the re newal of which eo many petitions were sent to Congress, is the one last above mentioned The discovery of the fact that Hite, not Mc Cot Jiick, sboald have been the o iginal pa tentee, of which there now can be little doubt, it seems to us, goes to show the eorreotness of our declaration, that few, indeed, of the val uable inventions are patented to original in ventors of the trtioles in question, and also to enforce the duty of great care in sifting the claims of parties to be original inventors. 8 York AtLoe, Esq ?This gentleman though profes&ing very great contempt for the Star, takes occasion to notice the article pub li-hed in our Washington News columns on Saturday, explaining farts involved in his connection with office in this city neoecinry to be understood for a thorough appreciation of bis case. He throws any quantity of ?' slush" upon the St jr. but carefully avoids meeting any one of its facts stated in his case No un prejudiced person can read his reply without perceiving that hi clearly admits the allega tion on which it seems to be understood that he was removed from office His second arti cle is, indeei, a complete exposition of the dieingenuousaess of his flrat one?so glaring as to require no further ot mmsnts from us in self-defence from his fierce onslaught. We have always entertain* , kind feeliags for him, and are at this time actuated by them We have no war to make on him, and referred to his card on Saturday, only for the vindication of the truth of history?that's all. The Frogrees of 8cienee?The apparatus of the Smithsonian Institution ie, perhaps, the most complete new in our eoantry, and new articlee are eonstantly being added. A com plete set ot apparatus for exhibiting tbe facts ef the new branch of science called dia mug n?tiim has been Obtained from Paris. A few years ago bu* four metals were known to pos-* se^s magnetic properties, namely : iron,bicke', cobalt, and manganese. ' It i< now known that all bodies exhibit acalagoas phenomena when placed under the induotive influence of po?? erml magnets; but they are not all similarly affected All bodies may, however, be di vided into two olastee?one in wh (h tbe pol arity is developed at the extremities of a bar of the substance, as In iron, and hence oalled Simple magnetic bodies; and the other class, ia which the polarity is transverse t? the I~Dgth of the bar, and the substance is hence caHed din magnetic. The simple repetition of these experiment! in this oountry is import ant. and the apparatus will serve as a model for ingenious American artists. Great Honor.?Tho Court Journal, of Lon don, records the memorable faot. with due ?aphasls, that "Mr. Eiserberg h- thMreat' honor of cutting the c:rb| of tfc# Bm^r 'Napoleon Ux., fti Baekinghanl Palace " It '?3me ^ WR8 the only cut the Emperor received during his sr.jour'); and that can be excused from the extremity of the esse, dif ferirg. as it does, toe to# redo from all tt-e pAit published history of the corn brt4 en tertainments of Buckinghsm palace. The imperial relic doubtless is preserved in the British Museum Pay of Disoharged Soldiers ?A oase was presented in which the retained pay of a sol dier had been withheld because the words' hon estly and faithfully " had been struck out of his cortificato of discharge, given at the expi ration of his enlistment. It was held that where a soldier had ssrvtd out his full term, the Government by con tinuing him in service had designed to ever look the offence he had committed and should pay the full amount of wages he had earned under his contract of enlistment, unless he had been tried and sentenced to forfeit them is whole or in part, aad the sentence had not been remitted. A Sphinx ?A sphinx has been received at the Sta'e Department, sent over to the Gov- j eminent by Mr. De Leon, United States Con-1 ?ul General in Egypt. It is an antiquity, of! course, and has the body of a lion and face of a young woman. It is capi'ally cut in sand stone. and stands about two feet high. It is covered with hieroglyphics, and has carved on it representations of a beetle, a bull, a scor pion, dogs, a crocodile, faces, and other figures.

A Core for Hard TmE9.-If the people I were to attend less to politics and more to use. ful labor they would have a greater abund anca of food and at cheaper prioes. Nearly all the popular movements of the day have reference to party politics and the elevation of some favo-ed individual to office where he can draw a good salary from the public without work. Were as much teal displayed | m spreading useful information among farm eis, mechanics, and manufacturers, there! vou.d be a much more profitable investment ot labor, much more prosperity, and a greater degree of liberality and enlightenment among the people. If semebody would start a na I tional eonvention for the purpose of setting idlers to aork, instead of creating useless pub* he c flees to withdraw them from labor, there would be a gteater abundaco^Bf food for next ye^r, and laboring people would not be driven! t > the brink of starvation at they now are ?
