Ik# ?oral?Bad Government?Americana Baling America, ko ?Among the lit thou sand persona present before Brown'? Hotel on Saturday night lut, were oertainly lundreda of worthy, respectable, lew-abiding, end pa triotic citiiens who here beoome identified politic ell j with those who went there to strike down the right of their fellow-citisens to be addressed on pablio affairs when and where and bj whom thej please. They witnessed the orderly, patient, and forbearingoondact of nine-tenths of the meeting, native and foreign born, who; as friends of Mr. Wise, had assem bled to listen to the address they had invited him to deliver. They were also witnesses of the sympathy of our present oity government with the violators of the rights of others, as evinced by the total failure of any of its mem bers?police or others?to raise a finger or a voice for the maintenance of the pablio peaee They know that the conduo*. of the mob, to which we refer above, inflicted a stain on oar oity's reputation which they themselves de plore, and whioh cannot be wiped out They know, too, that it was bat oarrying a little farther the policy and oatragea perpetrated by the aame parties with the aame official countenance, at the two anti.Know Nothing meetings held at Carusi'a Saloon They know that, under our present municipal auspices those oppoaed to Know N?c'ningiam in this oity are, unless t*;,y ?May to protect them selTea, wholly and entirely cut off from their rigVi to liaten in the open air, is the evening to addreasea from their frienda. Ihey know still further, that neither life nor property can be aafe in this community while ita govern ment ia in the handa of those who do not lift a finger to prevent the perpetration of 6uch outrages on solemnly-guaranteed personal and great public rights. They know, from what they saw and heard on that occasion, the true depth of the regard for Bible Christianity and Amerioan liberties entertained by thoae who then and there aaaumed to act fo* the Know Nothing party, aa they have rarely failed to aot everywhere in our country, when, under aimilar circumstances, the oover of the shade? of night and the countenance of a sympathis ing police make the desirable opportunity. We know well, and take pleaaure in pro claiming that the great maaa of oar Know Nothing fellow citizens who have something to lose by anarchy and mob rale, cotdemn the condaotof these who assumed on Saturday night last to act for them, as heartily as we do. Bat will they aid and abet the laying up of more such fearfi'l accounts against tkrmselvee, as co-political laborers with such wanton violators of pablio and private rights, by voting on Monday next to sustain those in power, who, from highest to lowest, look qui etly on while such soenes are being enacted in our oity, secretly ohaokling over them, ra ther than raising a finger for their prevention and punishment? In this, ia the moral of the so disgraceful occurrences of Saturday night lut Candlec, Coffins and Cannon ?It is being said all over Washington that the kmbitues of the offioe of oar talented, amiable, enthuaiai tic, modest and knowing neighbor, in the dead certainty of the triumph or Flournoy which recently pervaded their minds, made a hand aome inveatment in candles for an illumina tion, a coffin for the intended oeremony of a mock funeral of Henry A Wiae, and cannon and ammunition with whioh to celebrate their victory in the ahape of mournful minute guna, to be fired over the mock grave. The expense of all this preparation threatena to be a dead losa. Nevertheless, perhaps, some per cen tage upon it may possibly be realiied to the now so-hard of investors, who, it ?ill be re membered, speculated so freely on our talented, amiable, enthusiastic and modest nei hbor's judgment. Fo* instance they may find use for the tallow, in rubbing it on their faces whioh are haggard, jagged and puckered, through the intenaity of their aufferinga from the Virginia election returns, ao as to give them an eppearanoe of disagreeable asperity, which as matters now stand, oan only be re. moved by aome such extraordinary applioa. tie*. Capt. Robert Doyle, so generally called cn to make the baby-waker speak in tones of thander when the election boot gets on to the leg of his friends, will prabably pay a fair price for the gnns and ammunition. As frr the coffin, even that may not be en tirely uselees, as matters now stand. We draw this conclusion from an occurrence in the Centre Market, on Saturday morning last, as follows: A reverend politician, renowned for the intensity of hii hates and the vehem ence of his pjlitios, rather than for the earn estness of his inculcation of the duty of peace, good will, fair dealing, and oharity to all men through the example of his own walk in life, approached a butter merchant, who bore Sam little love in his lifetime. ?' Good morning, Brother , you come in the nick of time. A poor fellow died last night, in my neighbor hood. He was an espeoial friend of yours?a dashing, enthusiastic young fellow, exoeed ingly popular with the boys, and a very fast liver, indeed. He went off somewhat in debt his lamp going oat suddenly and most unex pectedly to himself and those who oonfided in the anosual premise whioh he manifested for one of his age and rather disreputable origin. His friends in my ward desire to give the young fellow at least a decent funeral, and have ooncluded that you are the very person who should most properly conduct its ceremo. nies Will you come up this afteraeon and officiate?" Clerical Polutcimn?" I fear that the ex citement occasioned by these strange returns from Virginia anfits my mind for the perform ance to-day of the duties of a minister of the Gospel. Bat, as you say he waa a friend of mine, perhaps I will try to be there. What is his name ?" Quizzical Butter Merchant.?"Sam!" [Exit Parson Polities, in great indignation, in deed, staggering off as though his gait waa impeded by the weight of a city lot on each shoulder. Chas. J. Faulkner?The opponents of Know Nothingiam owe a debt of gratitude to this gentleman, whose exertions contributed greatly indeed, to bring about the recent political re suit in Virginia. Some indiscreet t-nd unau thorised friend of his, months ago, proposed his name for admission to a Know Nothing coua cil, and thas, without his knowledge, compro mised the integrity of his political hearing; causing aa, among others, to view him with suspicion. Hia coarse throughout the recent can vase, however, has proved a noble vindica tion of himself from toe imputation of having been eogniiant of the act of his friend He hee labored manfully, might and day, not only is addressing the people every where through out his district, bat by bringing hi? wall-known powerful personal influence to bear In all di reetioas in behalf of the oause in whioh be wu enlisted. Victory, in the shape of a re election, baa perched on bis banner; bnt bis gfcateet vistory hat been in to soon demon strating past future question, that Know Notb. ingittn has had no more consistent foe than himself. Cold Comfort, 4c.?Our talented, courteous, amiable, entertaining, and truthful neighbor gravely reoommends those who speculated re cently to 10 great advantage in the correct ness of its advioe about the condition of po litical affairs In Virginia, not to mind their defeat; but to put their trust in the belter luok that may be in store for tbem nfeLHime Their confidence in the integrity of its advioe, as inJ its wisdom and knowledge, has made them all rich off of their winnings from those blind fools?the friends of Wise. The oiroumstanoes attending the reception of dispatches in this city, on Friday and Saturday last, go to show how fully we are justified in complimenting the good faith of our neighbor. It was re ceiving news by the wires of the result in dif ferent counties, just as its opponents rValved from th. a.m. ' It,' prof,., !ion?l ?porti;e rri.nda had lwi heavily, and "!ire doing their best to " hedge"?that is, to get bats on Wise with unprofessional b?ttcn in the Know Nothing ranis The purely accidental temporary suppression around [our neighbor's cflloe, of the true news, on which the friends of Wise and the profes sional K N. sporting men were betting (the latter through Wise men) on those days, and j the as purely aooidental ostentatious parade of the bogus news received by our neighbor, on which the K N. rank and file were staking all they were worth for the moot part against the money or their own bettors-by-trade po litical brethren were remarkable coincidents indeed. Our ts'.entad, oourteous, amiable, en tertaining, and truthful neighbor Is, however, capable of doing astonishing things, purely accidental, of course, as in this instance We ?hall not be surprised to find that more or less of the hard working members of itj party, whose money has been thus accidentally ab I straoted by the suppression of true news and the promulgation of that whioh was false to reimburse the "sporting" fraternity for their losses oontinue for some time to eome to bless the day when they pinned their faith to the I sleeve o? oar straight forward and ingenuous ' neighbor. Precocity.?After the ruffians who attended I the meeting called by the friends of Mr. Wise to hear an address from him on Saturday night last, had driven that gentleman from the portico of Brown's Hotel by their cow [ ardly insults and hootings to drown his voiee, I a verdant youth, evidently wantiig some years of being of age, was placed upon a dry-goods box in the middle of the street, to pow wow to their taste. He went at it with more as. ?=urance than we ever Baw Daniel Webster or Henry Clay manifest in publio speaking in the palmiest days of either cf those gentle men. To the pertinent question?whether his ma knew he was out??speared at him by some wag in the crowd of thousands by whom he was surrounded, he coolly informed those present who differed from him that they might retire, if they did not like his Bentiments; as that " was an American meeting!" We men tion this affair only by way of slowing the true sense of right and wrong actuating the gangs of ruffiftns who went to the meeting of the friends of Mr. Wise for tho avowed purpose of destroying the right of free discussion In this city, by violence. The instant that a word w s said by a by stander disagreeable to tbem, they essayed to as sume the position of the parties who were rightfully there, and to resent that word as an [ infraotien of that very right they had attended to destroy. In the course of the incoherent | ravings of the preoocious lad to whom we refer above, be uttered torrents of vulgar abuse cf the foreign bom citixens of Washington, one | and all; denouncing them as worse than pirates and traitors, on account of the accident of their bir'h. When some one in the crowd sung out that he was thus cursing his own worth; father and mother, who were personally amenable to the sweeping charges he was making The announcement of the faot was hardly neces sary, insomuch as no boy in whose veins there coursed the blood of American sires of '78 ! would have spoken sentiments showing that he had been brought up so entirely ignorant of tho true principles of Amerioan institutions [ and liberty. The Menomonee Indiana ?By the treaty of May 12, 1854, the Menomonee Indians have I secured to themselves twelve townships of land, in the form of a parallelogram, on Wolf's river, Wisconsin, intended as their permanent I home,'? to be held as Indian lands," instead I of a quantity in the Par West as was oontem I plated in their treaty of 1848. This change | we understand, is in oonsequenoe of the hu I mane polioy which has been adopted, to intro duce, if possible, the blessings of the Chris tian roligion and the arts of civiled life among this remnant of a onoe powerful tribe of the wandering sons of the forest, who are so fast fading from our view, for all whioh the treaty amply provides.

Nothing of a public char acter ioafcs upon any pasting braesa, except the returns from tba Virginia election, and ??en the excitement caused by it is rapidly subsiding and both parties. with the excep tion of a few among the defeated, of the more sour and orabbed Bort, who are still disposed to anap and enarl at the friends of the victo rious party, are beginning to tnrn their atten tion to aomething else, either matters of a business character, or tbe municipal election whioh takes place in your oity on Mondav next.

The flour market remaina firm and active at our quotations of yesterday, $10 37ia$ll No grain of any kind arriving. Spbctatob. Ocbious Calculation?X!iq following we clip from the Boston Post: It has beon ascertained by carefully con. duoted experiments, that the loss by friction or wear, upon gold eoin, when in use as cur rency, does not exceed a twentieth of one per cent per annnm; and upon silver a half of one per cent, per annum. In other wor If, a gold coin kept constantly in circulation would last two thousand years before it would en. tirely disappear- a silver coin would last two hundred years; 000 new eagles outweigh 901 whioh have had one year's circulation, 900 dimes outweigh 907 under similar ciroum stanoes. After the surface of the coin becomes smooth the friction becomes lesj, like the sur faoe of a bar of railway iron. The average cost, therefore, of an exclotive metallic cur. rency, would be an eleventh of one per sent, per annum upon the amuunt required. The amount of bank notes in circulation, at the present time in the United States, is estimated to be $160,000,000; and the amount of speoie in the vaults of the banks to be $60 000,000 ir. therefore, an addition of $100,000,000 were made to the specie basis of our currency, and bank notes entirely dispensed With, it would cost about $100,0CC to maintain it; an amount far below the average annual loss cooasioned by depreciated back note?, to say nothing of the losses consequent upon the expansions and subsequent sudden contraction of paper issues. The largest denomination of coins being uoId whxah is the least liable to depreciation by wear, the cost would be even less than the amount stated. lD# REmm or IJ.XIGRAKT8 -Wel^m from re liable sources, that an unprecedentedly larce number of immigrants have returned to Eu f.PnnK J Since the 20th of April, at s? A. thoa'*D(i have been sent back by the South street shipping agencies. The oause of ?Dt is PfclP*bI?- The ex orbitant pridi?** the neoesaariea of life, and the limited demand for labor, operating in connection with the comparatively low cost of living and the demand for laborers in Europe form powerful inducements to return. So doubt, our stringent laws relative to tbe sale of liquors, and the observance of Sunday a* well as the opprobrium ca-t upon foreignere and Roman Catholics by theKuow Nothings, have their influence in giving the memory ef the attain doable force it would otherwise W hatever the cause, however, there is a fal ling off, to the extent of fifty per oent. in the number of immigrants now arriving, as com pared with last year, and very many of those who come, return as soon aa possible. A vain attempt is made to procure employment in tLe oity (to the country but few can be induoed 'o go. unless to purchase lands at the West ai a- 5?untl7 requires laborers) and disneartened they return.
