The Union inouIc%tes moderation on both sides in disposing of the Kansas qusalion After deprecating the origin*! a.tempt ef New England to abolitioaisc the new territory, the editor 1171: " It was under this conviction that we de counccd with earnestness the inauguration of the nbclirion scheme of influencing the result in Kau*a- by means of the Massachusetts Aid Company. We saw then that such a more rncnt wonld necessarily produce measnres of o;unteraction on the part of southern men on the borders of Kansas, and that, whatever might bo the result in the Territory, the ques tion of its admission as a State would be em barra??ed with n?w obstaetos. We foresaw that if the Emij.-ant Aid Company suoseeded in their so^eme of colonising the Territory with an*.t-sUvery settlers, *he people of the South would be famished with arguments again*t the admission of Kansas as a free State. On the other hand, we fores ?w with equal clearness that if the measures of counteraction by the border Mijsourians should be success, ful, the Abolitionists would be armed with new pretext for carrying out the purpce of resistance to the admission of Kansas as a ?lave State, whioh already constitute a perm a nent feature in the fusion platform. Oar worst fears have been realised in the results The Abolitionists persisted in their schemes of abolitionising Kansas?the M:s?ourians re sorted ro measures of counteraction n >t sanc tioned by law; and the elections have taken place under such circumstances of outside in terference and influence, that it is impossible to say whether the result aocordi with the real wishes and sentiments 0: the real inhabitants of the Territory *' We are now enabled to see clearly the real point of danger involved in the Kansas ques tion. and tho circumstances whioh have in creased the difficulty of finding for it a satis factory solution. It is manfest that if the South makes the late oc:urrences in Kansas the basis of a southern sentiment and the North joins issue, and makes them the basis of a no them sentiment, we shall have pre einitated upon the country a purely sec'lonal contest, which may hasten a hostile collision between the two sections To avoid such an issue, there never was mire urgent necessity for the prevalence of prudent moderate and forbearing counsels It is the plain duty of national men in both sections to look calmly at all the circumstances, to make all possible 1 allowances for excesses end irregularities growing out of passion and prejudice, and to determine calmly and dispassionately whether the Union ought to be staked on anything that has yet occurred in connection with the Eonsas question.'' The ltuelligenetr discusses an incidental Kansas and Nebraska question with the I iton. "The Initials" We thank Taylor and Maury for placing on ocr book table The Initials, a story of modern life;" Philadelphia: T B. Peterson, No. 102 Chetnut street?a work just published. The authoress is understood tc be a talented and highly educated daughter of Lord Erskine, formerly Lord High Chancellor of England, now the wife of a German nobleman. Iler tale is a simple one, depicting German life and society, with exact fidelity, without essay ing to please by extravagancies of foroed ex amples in conveying her impressions of it. Her book is fall of interest, insomueh as she eonveyi much solid, useful and agreable Infor mation about Qermany and the Germans, un* der the garb of a capitally contrived and well sustained ncvel.

In the "personal liberty ' bill of Gov. Gardiner and his troop, however, any man in the State of Massachusetts, who happens for tbe nonce to have been elected a justice of tbe peace or the judge of any nominal court ia the State, even though he has not in his life previously read a page in a law book, is authorised to issue a writ of hah as corpus, and through it to take out ef the custody of the United States Marshal ?to be set free?a fugitive from labcroommit ted to his keeping by a judge of the Supreme Court of the United States, after a full hearing of the plea and testimony on whioh the prison er claims the right to go free The reader will do well to ponder upon this action of a Legislature elected under the pretenee of a neeeesity for guarding the integrity of our institutions, and the purity ani conservatism of our laws, more effectually th<*n they have been guarded for the last half century by the Whig party of Massachusetts, In power in all that time; the danger alleged to be apprehend ed being from the devotion of the foreign-born among us to absolutism on one hand, and ex treme radicalism on the other Is there a man of common sense among as who can refleot on the doing of this Maseachusetts Legislature, without realising the wholeeale imposture through whieh they gained their present places> The Approaching Municipal Election?We understand that an application will be made to the Circuit Court for this District to dis pose immediately of the question raised by J.

Governor Gardiner and Judge Loring ? It seems to us as though many of our cotempc ra .e-" are wilfully blind to a proper percep tion of the influences under which Gov. Gard inor, of Massachusetts, refused to obey the al most unanimous ediot of his politeal friends (who have entire control of the Legislature of Massachusetts,) with reference to the removal of Judge Loring He has given every proof I that a man possibly could give of his hearty bj mpathy with that aciion. He has again and again proclaimed, over bis own signature, that he regards the fugitive slave law a statute not fit to be obeyed, and, therefore, that it is emi nently the duty of a loyal citizen of Massa chusetts to set It at defiance As one of the board of management of Harvard University, be voted to remove Judge Loring from bis law 1 professorship of that ins itution. as being unfit longer to instruct in the law there, because he executed the fugitive slave law. And he has assured Abolitionist Know Nothings, in any numbers, that his refusal to carry out the fiat of his friends fn the Legislature, in the Loring case, was only because he was satisfied that they had made a political mistake in taking action in ih? matter brfura the 34th of May; tbe oau?e cf anti slavery hariag just at thia time more to gain from the defeat of Wi*e and bis friends in Virginia, than from the dis placement of Judge Loring. Ihe fact that he renders thia reason for refraining, for the time being from standing by his record, is noto rious to hundreds in Boston, and aoconntsj satisfactorily to us, for the oonduct of the great majority of the antislavery press of the State in refraining from condemning him for his veto. It will be recollected that only the oraied Garrison party presses of the State have taken oocaslon fo reprehend his action. It will be remarkable, indeed, if people of ocm. mon sense in Virginia allow any such dust to be successfully thrown in their eyes. nullification ?It is worthy of note that the present legislature of Massachusetts, in the mactment of "the personal liberty bill," which owes its paternity dirocUy to Governor I Gardiner and the clique of his party by which he is persoiia'ly surrounded, have gone a ean aon shot beyond South Carolina in the way of nullification The very worst feature in tk ir nullification i3 the faot that they are without the character and courage to avow their pur pose, which is evident in every provision of the infamous bill. South Carolina, when ehe be lieved that the General Government was guilty of an unconstitutional usurpation threatening the liberties and rights of her citiiens, boldly avc wed her purpose to be, to dissolve the Union ?nlcM what she regarded t* her wrong* were redressed. Mas.ajhusetts, without pretending to dispute the constitutionality of the (to her) obnoxious act of Congress, essays to nullify it without avoying any such purpose. She pro ceeds meanly, sneakingly to work, as though conscious that she is engaged in something which in all its consequances and aims she dares net avow as her purpose. Her affairs have indeed fallen into disreputable hands.

C WIGHT, Sec. Washington, May 19,1855 TO THE EDITOR OF THE STAR: StaI call d at your office thia morning, as you are aware, an 1 not Having a personal ac quaintance with jou, introduced myself to yo?, and oalied your attention to an editorial article in the "American Organ" of yesterday, the ldth instant, un.'tr the caption of ? OficeAoldert in the FieM," rnd toid you that 1 had no doubt at all that I was " the first named clerk" referred to in that article, as I have been recently on a visit of a few days to Jeff-rson county, Virginia, whither I had accom panied my wife and two little daughters, whom I lett there, and who intend spending the summer I witli my wife's mother and only brother at their residence in that county ; and that, to my certain knowledge, no other "$1,600 clerk of the Pension Office" had been in that region rscently (if sve;) exc ept myself. Upon this representation to you, 1 ask'd you if you would be kind enough to allow me the use of your columns to make a brief statement of the facts and the truth, as a reply to the unpro voked, ungentletnanly, and indecent attack ct the editor of the "Organ" upon m?, to which you re plied m the affirmative.* In ?he early part of this month, I ommunicated the tact to the Han. L. P. Waldo, the Commissioner of Pensions, in whosf office I am a clerk, that 1 de ft re J to accompany my family ?o Virginia, who were g-'ing there to spend tha summer, and asked leave of ;.bsence for a few days to enable Be to go with the-n, at rnch time as I could make my arrange uieiits to leave Washington. Having fixed my ar rangements to leave on Saturday morning, the 12th instact, I communicated the fact to Mr. Waldo, and told liirn, if no unforsren accident occurred to prevent me, that I would return home on Tuesday or Wednesday, the 16t!i instant, at the farthest, as it w -mid be necessary for me to he with my family for iw'i or three days, and to make some necessary arr: ngements for them incptpflt to so long an ab sence from Washington. On my journey to Vir gin' ?, onv of my children was taken very sick in the car- and remained quite prostrate after we reached h e, a-id was confined to her bed till Wednesday r.nning, and was just sufficiently recovered on Thursday morning, the 17th instant, for me to leave her >afely and satisfactorily, and return to Wash ingt in to attend to ny business. I did return on that day, and reported m>-wif to the Hon. Commis mis: ioner of Pensions on Friday morning?never for a m sncnt dreaming that the eye of the cowardly spy iad Levn rating upon ttie absence from the seat of (.overnmeni of ??? humbie an individual as my self, or that a Man who had been once honored by a ten. rous Virginia people with a seat in the Senate of tiieir State?who had presided rs a Judge in a Court of Justice?and who nad teen again honored by a Virginia President of the United States with a foreign mi-eio-'?would have let himself down so lo-.v .is to bri'ome the retailer of such miserable trash a-? his article contains, and the publisher ofawil ful, deliberate, and malicious lie,aa I unequivocally and emphatically pronounce the charge contained in that article to be, to wit:?that f was in the cou ity of Jefferson, Vi'ginia, " huty in instructing tin yeomanry and mechanic? of that rtgion how to cait their vote* " It so happens that I have a very limited personal acquaintance with "the yeomanry and mechanics" of .lefft rson county, Virginia. I can with entire saftty say that I could not this day go there and take one hundred of them by the hand, and call theni by their names, and claim a personal acquaint anc with them. During th? four days that I was in t':c county I did not converse with ten men on the .ubjeel of the Virginia election?and the one half of them were myfamily connexions, who know how to cast their own votes, and whom, I regret to siy, will cast them in a very different direction from whiit I would cast mine were I there on the day of the election. I was not absent from my family more than a few hours during my stay in Jefferson, and than I went in company with a highly respectable and elderly gentleman?a near relative of my wife ?and who is a member of the "Know Nothin" party, to Charlestown, the ceunty seat of Jefferson where we both went upon private business, and re mained a short time, and again accompanied each oth? r to th': county, and, differing as we do, politi cally. I fee! quite euro he would spurn the dLreput aMe aspersions cast upon me and my conduct as cordially as I do myself. Had I gone to Virginia on a political mission, should not have stopped in Jefferson county, where I know very few persons, but would have gone my native county of Berkeley, to Morgan, fcc., (where 1 know almost everybody) whose humble representative I have been in the Councils of my native State. But I never had the vanity to aspire to be an instructor to the people how to vote. V ginia politicians "to the manor born," are not quite so presumptuous as that?perhaps those imported from Vermont leel quite in their natural element in work The editor of the "Organ" says that " we (be) learns from Jefferson, Virginia, that one of the $1,600 clerks of the Pension Office is busy in in structing the yeomanry and mechanics of that re gion how to cast tbsir votes;" and adds, "this is fit service for such a man, whose candidates Wi.e aud Faulkner, have been on both sides of every question," h.c. fcc. Now I care not who he gained his information from, (but I firmly be lieve that his information was not obtained from Jefferson aounty, but from a certain cowardly stuker of responsibility in this city) the name of the editor, as ret forth ia the paper, is Vet paiian Ellis, and he has chosen to make an uapro voked assault?editorially?upon nif, and has as serted of me what I pronounce a t'elibera e lie, and he must make the mo*! or it. If he has been im posed upon from " Jefferson, Virginia," or in this city, that is a matter for settlement between him and liis informants, and no affair of mine. He has chosen to malign and asperse ire without cause or provocation, and be the responsibility uroa his own head. If he feels himself aggrieved at anything I have said he will find me ready to give him any Biti-faction that he may desire. As to my former political relations - that is my own bu ineas. If 1 was once a Whig and chose to leave mv party associations and make others, I had a right In this free country to do so. My public acts * Meaning our advertising columns, as in this case The Star's advertising columns only are open tothn i*rtenal matters of individuals, and are as ii?is <o members of one party as to those of ihe other.?Kb. are legitimate subjects of fair and gentlemanly comment, and 1 make no objection to web com m<9ts. I am alwaya ready " to give the reason? for the faith that Is in me,'' and my consistency and my democracy, I am rare, will at all time* compare favorably with that of Mr. Ellis, and be founded on quite as high and patriotic motives. I feci proud of having been ihe humble supporter of Gen. Pierce fnr the Presidency, and regret siaccrely that I havenot b?*??n able to render my earnest though humble ex er.ions to the elevation of Haury A. Wise to the Governorship of the Bute of Virginia?a gentleman under whose gallant leadership I was prond to fight in the recent Reform Convention of Virginia in favor of popular rights. Bat he will be triumphan'ly elected, a* I sincerely believe; and Mr. Ellis will find that "the independent voters (of Virginia) will spurn the instrm.t.o*tsfrom Washington," which he has been for months pant to arrogantly issuing to them," and that Thursday next will seal the doom" of tkt i'nmacuUiU Sam and the tr-ret inquisition, which Senator Hunter so ^iphically describes in bis speech at Petersburg, when he says??' Doet it not sit upon your character and mine, try us when we cannol be heard, condemn tu when we had not been arraigned, and execute its sentence without serving u/ton the victim a notice of it* existence!" I have been credibly informed by a gentleman cf this city, that one of the" Sams" boas ed in the public streets the day before the appearance ofMr. Ellis' assault upon me in " the Organ,'?tbat it was " to come out next dav," and I suppose the Inquisition has shouted halUlujah ! Has it come to this, that a gentleman cannot leave home for a i*ay with his wife and chil dren, unless he belong? to the Inquisition, without being tracked by a gang of cowardly rpies, and maligned in a newspaper by an editor who seems n< t to care to enquire after the truth, if the victim aimed at is only n po'itical opponent? I have no taste for such a controversy a? this,and regret most sincerely lhat it has been so wantonly thrust upon me. Your obt servant, JAME8 E. STEWART, May 21?It of Virginia.
