HEWS ADD GOSSIP. Tie Coast Survey -^We understand that Professor Bacbc is shortly expected to reaeh Washlcgtcn, having oompleted the measure ment of the base lloes for the survey of Cap# S.iblo and Cape Biscayne on the southern coast of Florida The series cf field opera tiocs which have taken pipe* in that quarter daring the present season, we presume will tnffice to enable Professor B. shortly to pab' lish a oompleted chart of that mo it dangerous portion of onr coast?on the southern part of Florida. We hear it said that the results of this season's triangulations, , ic that qaar cr establish tbe fact that the best oharte? 'hose most confiied in by tbe mariner?locate Cape Florida six miles distant from its true geographical position. As this cape is proba bly one of the most important points on our Atlantic coast, the fact of the establish meat of its correct position will give an idea of the advantage which the commerce cf our country is to derive from the labors of the sjlentifn gentlemen conneoted with this great national work. Profes?or B , we hear, is obtaining charts? tbe results of the labors of hia nnny assist ants and subordinates?ranch faster than they can bo published, owing to the scarcity of suitable engracers in the UnitA States. How ever, as fast as he obtains results which it ij important that the navigation interest should know as soon as possible, he takes measures to rpread them broadcast, giving them the pre leronce in tho hinds of his engraviog oorps. Before he was called to the head of thrs im portant branoh of the puLlio service, the woik is said to have been prosecuted on a single base line, requiring the labor of nearly all en. aged, on tbe coasti of one or two States only for sexo twelve years. Thu3 its progress was slow aed unsatisfactory, ovidcutly, to tho naviga tion interest of tho country. IIo (Professor B ) however, adcpUd the plan of having rainy ba?o lines, connecting and vor.-ifying them as required. In conscqucncs of this caacge he h;u already been able to procuro entirely satis, factory and accurate charts of ne-.rly all of the in-at dangerous pointscn the Atlantic coast of tho United States, which, being now in the hands of thousands of the commanders of American merchant voxels, have already ma teiially lessened tie cau^alitiosou oar coasts and, a* a contequeoco, the cost of insurance. It is insu,:h results, ouly, that our fellow oiti zons, not faoiilitr with the saa, can appreciite the g-eat value and importance of this nation al enterprise. The Virginia Election ?We have takes oc casion to obtain estimates from two gentlemen of Virginia, famed for the accuracy of their judgment upon the probable results of eleo tions in that State. They are a; follows: UUOMT1U EY COXCaESSIO*AL DIS7BICTS. Wise. Flournoy. Bayly's 2o9 Million s. 250 (ioode 6'Jt) Bo:ock s 750 Powrll'e 400's 5co Caakie's 250 Lstcher's 5 OOJ Faulkner's AitO Kulweil 1 250 Lewis' 500 Elimns'cn'a 800 ' McMullen's.. 1 500 12.350 500 500 Aggregate asj for Wise.. 11,850 The other calculation sets down majorities for Wiso as follows: East cf tho mountains 2 oftO In the valley 000 la the northwest 2 500 la the scu:h?e3t a 5J0 14,500 W e have to say cf the paities whese calcu lationi these are, that for many years past ti ey have been regarded as beirg better prat cd in s:ch matters than any other gentlomoa we know cf in the State, and that on this occa sion they have taken even mora than their pains to satisfy themselves as to the ex act condition of things political, ia the State. It is propor for us to add that they both be liovo that the aggregate m'.j >rity for Mr. Wiso will reach 14,50c, though otie of them prefer to m?ke the luwer estimate, so that his assurance to cs nny be doubly suio. i'ogitieroi Loiters.^ We learn, on inquiry, that the Now York Tunes and other Northern I aptrs that ara growling at the Postmaster ueceral s recent publication with roforccce to the new iystem of registering valuable lottara in this country, are wrong iu saying that tho British Postal Department insures tho (afe de livery of money letters and postmasters' or ders transmitted through the English mails. Tho point that disturbs the Times is the fact that five cents is to be charged as a fee for the trouble of registering a letter, when the De partment declines to insure the safe delivery of its oontents. The Tim^$ will please to take notico that the British l'cstal Department obarges twelve cents for precisely tho same sarvioa?for doing nothing more. The editor forget* that in crobaod labor, trouble, and responsibility with a letter is the result of registering it. So far as tbe Department's increased expense is con cerned, we hear that tho cost of the new forms and blanks, already ordered for distribution j au!on<< the different postmasters to enable | them to carry cut the now rystem ef registry, amounts to between $30,000 and $40,000 It will be perceived from this explanation that the additional chcrge is amply jastifisd. For the Sonth ?A number of persons ara now ergaged in paoking and sending from the | Patent Offi,e to the South cork o*k acorrs) { Fift&cbio nuts, olive trees, grape vicer, fig | cuttings, Ztnte currant (or Sultana raisin) vices, Piragua tea plants, and Jujube plants The quantities of each of the?o valu able articles beirg thus sent out to have tx j erimcLts made with them is quite larg -, end thry are being directed to well known suoccss fa! agriculturists in almost every quarter of every Southern State, the South being tbe only quarter cf our country where, it is judged, these particular articles will flourish. The bureau makes use of the members of CoD?rcss and Senators, for the most part, as its distributor) It can hardly be that seme got d will fail to come of the buroau's efforts to ascertain what agricultural and horticultural natives cf Europe may be profitably adopted iu this country; as it has not only expended considerable money to that end, bat been aid ed by the advice ar.d personal assistance in the work of many of the meet successful agri culturists and horticulturists in both hem* ispherte ? Caret delet Ccxamorr?This case, a short time since decided b^ the Department of the I interior, ha# been recently again brought to th* attention of the Secretary upon an alle gation thit the lines of Brown'* 4 Ris tor's survey on the west, south, end c&3t were so Tariant at to length and tbe contents of the survey* so different from each other and from the extent of the grant, as to reader it lmpos* rible thai the lines of Brown could bo a re traoemont of those of R stor, as was held to be the faot in the decision originally made' Upon a thorough critical examination of that point, and after full argument by parties claiming adverse to the Commons, we leans the Secretary has approved his former deci sion, and that the attorney of the parties, after an examination of the points made to bear upon this eisg'e question, appeared satis fied that the disposition of the same was a jua; one. The Smithsonian Institution ?The Boston Advertiser, of the 15th, attempts to bold the Regents of the Smithsonian Institution up to ridicule, because of tjie permission lately granted by thoir authority to the Union Choir Association to hold its convention in the Smithsonian lecture room. Surely this can be no just cause of complaint, and so tar aa the action of the Regents or their Seoretary is concerned in regard to granting the usoof tho Smithsonian lecture room o respectable as semblages of curcitixens, we think it is highly liberal and commendable. Tho; have freely allowed the Mechanic's Institute, the Young Man's Cbiislian Association, the Teacher's Association, tho National Medical College, Georgetown College, the Public (School?, Sun day Schools, and other organisations of oar ci'y the u?e cf thoir large and elegant lecture room, and by offering their rooms to the U. S. Agricultural Society, tho American Associa tions for the advmcement of Sciesoe and Ed ucation, and other national societies have con tributed largely to the welfare of Wttfhirg on. Oar cuixens fetl a deep interest in this matter, and we know that tho course which h is been pursued in ibis rcrpeci meets with hearty and general approval. Eccnxiiicg for tho four fTew Regiments ? In tho last two mouths fivohundred men have b>ea enlisted for the new regiments, though but thirty cfficen in all have been recruiting for them This is icdspondent of the recruit ing for the general Eorvics, which continues to l>r-3rcs3 at the rite cf. perhaps, four hundred ??r.d fifty men p.or month.

Ha was then conveyed to the home of his afflicted parents, near the east end of Gay street, from whenoe he will be borne by his sympathising brother Mamns and friends to his last resting-plaee in Oak Hill Cemotery this afternoon at 5 o'clock As an evidence of the bigh regard enter tained towards Mr. K. by our citisens gener ally, tv? would remark, that from the liiae it wis first indicated by the ttirtinp tf the steamer trom the point wbere he was drowned that the bo ly had beon found, larga crowds of our citizens, and many fron yonr oi y, com menced thronging the wharves, all apparently arxf'i's to oatcb a glimpse of his lifeless o.rk?8c.
