SFLEIT OF THS MORSinO FHF.2v The Union holds up to popular reprehen sion the alleged Know-Nothirg doctrine, that Oovernment, Constitution, and all, must perish, that stands in the way of tbe triumph of its views of progress. Still continuing it* discus f ion of the Perry case with the Intelligencer, the Union say?: "We were not to far wrong, however, in the supposition that it was the removal of their frien .* Perry, and not the exposure of their tergiversation*, which disturbed the placidity ? f our neighbors. When they come to rpeak on this matter, they become 44 serious,'' und f ankly admit that they see in Mr. Perry's "recall at this particular time" cause for "re gret." Our mistake, then, was in supposing they were irritated, whereas they wero only sorry We acknowledge the error, and have only to regret we cannot sympethise with then in their distress. They admit that Mr. Perry wss guilty of an 44 indiscretion" in ad dression his letter through their paper to the President; but they think this small official indecorum ought to have been overlooked in consideration of tbe great public sorvices which Mr Perry had rendered in Spain As we are unable to appreciate those services like our neighbors, we cannct tee in them any reaaon for overlooking the'iudisoretion.' wi.ich they enabled Mr. Perrr to consummate through their colnmns We thick their xor rvtr. therefore, is legitimate, both kocaus? Mr. Perry *as so indiscreet aa to write such a letter, and because his friends of the Intelli gencer were so unfortunate at to yield le his request to give it ;ublicity, and thereby to consul cr* i his ' indie* ret-o*n.' That we may give tbein all tbe comfort in our power, how ever, we will aid th~t there w*s co connexion bctweoD the appearance of Mr. Scale's last letter *nJ Mr. Perry's recall. Ihe recall of Mr. Pfcrry was a fixed faot as soon as his lec tor ai>pe*reu in tbe Nati'ral In'clli^encer, and tfc> announcement was only delayed until bis suocec>-ui could be selected The iHtdiigeneer s New York correspond ent says: "The prosecutors in the Kinney are completely nonplussed ite Colonel has dio appeared. and all -ff.ris to di*cov?r bis whero abcuts have thm; far failed.

It strike? us, from what ko hear, that Col lvinney and LL co adventurers wiil net be more successful in departing fr m anj other pert iu the United States than from New York. If they have siicntiy slipped away from New York to rendezvous at soma other p int to de part for Central America, it is prcbab'.y from a point in Florida, til which two Eu?piciocs but well-w^tchod vo?el? have been iylng for some time. We feel a?u ed thit tbey will not be permitted towei^h anchor unle-u regu larly and sa'irfaotcnrfly cleared from tho port off which they were at last advices. Eat even if they get cfT from some other point of the territory offl.ia Government, they will he duly taken care of on the Central American coast, unless iwhich L an impossibility) tie papers of their vessel or vessels are in all respects eati-factory. The way of the transgrosior is bard, and the chances are twenty to one that bis schemes tail of sueeess in the long ran.

WisniNGTOIt NEWS AND COSSiP. <?> fc. mmm . m The Tally.?The convenient eiecticu com* mi??ioners of the Third Ward, smarting under the pfcftmre of public sentiment with refer ence to their share of the means by which the Know Noth'ag candidates were enabled to obtain the certificates of election as the (bogus) result of our late municipal contest, resort to the columns of our tnlented, courteous, ami able, modest, entertaining truthful, and knowing neighbor, ia which to ossay to break the force of that publio opinion, m far as they are eonoerned. They seek to get up an issue of veracity with us. We do not intend that they shall escapo the consequences of their complicity with the circumstances of the re oent election, on the Know Nothing side, by thus aiding them to lead the publie off from the true is6uei involved in our account of Captain Goddard's tally. They get ccme one to say in another of our talented, modest, amiable, truthful, entertaining, and knowing neighbor's columns, that he (Captain Goddard) denies the coreectnrss of our state ment with reference to himself on Saturday last. Now, we have to say that ho author iies us to declare that he told these conve nient commissioners no such thing as they sr.y ho did, through this agent of theirs. lie told them that he had been careful to note down every vote polled at the window in the Third Ward, and that he found that according to his tally, 0ot> votes had been received there, with, perhaps, two more that had eeeuped his ob servation, and only two more. This reiteration to them of his declaration to us was not repeat ed honestly and fairly to their paragraphia. As for the discrepancy between his tally and their recollection, as all the parties to the con. troversy are well known in Washington, we need make no oommcn's upon it, leaving their fellow citizens who know thom?John H. God dard on the one sido, and Wm. C. Zantzingcr, et at., on the other?to judge a* to the amount of crodenco to be given to their contrary ac count; of the manner of conducting the elec tion at the Third Ward polls They essay to maka another point with us? that is, with refercnco to the number of anti Know Nothing voters waiting to deposit their ballots when they closed the window, nomin ally at 7 p. m . but really before that hour, as wi'l bo proved before the Circuit C jurt. Their allegation, that there were '? by actual count'" but 35 in all who had n >t deposited ibeir vote* when th*y closed the window, as e sayed to be substantiated, reminds us of the thief's effort ! to rebut the testimony of the witness who swore .hat he saw his thiefsbip steal the shoe,), by producing a witness on his side who swore that !u did not see him steal the animal.' By the count cf come 44 brother," as convenient for the purposes of tho lodges in the late elco tion, as the Know Nothing commissioners were, there were but 35 voters waiting to deposit their ballots. Really, thr eye3 of this counter (in the faco of the fret t a at from three to iva hun" dred citizens of Washington know of their own knowledge that there were from 100 to 150 anti-Know Nothings deprived of their right to voto at the Third Ward polis (by closing the wind .w before they reached i?) were as sadly at fault, as wore the eara of the Know Nothirg commissioners at all the polls; for i: will bo recollected that everybody in Washington but themselves heard of the de cision rendered in the Gr^ue-n case, within an hour after the court rendered it. All the mock indignation of the Third Ward convenient eloction criammionors ega'nst the editor of ihe Star, for the menner in which be hai discharged his duty with reference to ihe shameless, premt-di'a^d nnd disgracefu' frruds perpetrated in this election, wi'l net suffice to divert pnblic attention, from the facta that when they shut down the window in the face cf a U^ge number of anti-Know Nothing; voters, thsy had received but 712 votes in all r.gainst $24 taken at the same ward p lis at the last election, and against 1.014 taken at the Fourth Ward polls on tbii occasion. Our talented, courteous, amiable, modest, enter tainicg, truthful, and knowing neighbor, (hi It the Virginia election) unfortunately, for the success of the niock horoics of these conve nient commissioners, let the cat cut of the b;>g in declaring, shortly af;er meridian, on the day of the election, that all the votes could (would) not bo got in. Perhaps if it had anti cipated that tho vote received at the Third Ward polls, would havo been so much less thar ?? the last previous election, it world not hare tau' bleated out in aIvinoa cf tho man ner in which those oonvenient cooimhsioners designed doing their share of tho wjik carvcd out by the lodges. Interesting Telegraphic Statistics?Our little sister Republic of Switzerland, it ap pears, according 'o statistics, has greater facil ities for telegraphic communications than any other country. Switzerland has a telegraphic station to overy 20,000 of Lor inhabitants Kngland has one to every 56,000. Saidinia to every 70 000. Belgium to every 130,000 United States to every 240,000. France to ev ery 290.000. Pru?.-ia to every 320,000. , California.?Late arrivals from ourfarwoct render it certain that the era of the true pros perity of California is already dawning. That is, they tell of the improvement of the habits and character of the mining population of the State, and of the very generally eucue:sful application of machinery to get out the gold, greatly reducing the cost and labor or that operation in proportion to tho quantity real, ized. ihey tell alio cf a great revolution in tho system of doing commercial busiaoes throughout the Stato, growing cut cf the Ule fail-arcs of the banking boused and bwindling and extravagant speculators of ail degrees. The temporary disasters brought upon the people of Mississippi by the troublos of the era cf the Brandon bunk czplusion, have proved aA inostiiuable blessing to the people oi that State, who aro, at this tiino, with very few exceptions, indeed, as free from pecuniary embarrassments, thrcuyh tho Itvfcon thus taught them, a? any o'.her population of the same number in the world Plenty, contentment .ud moderation ate cow tha ruling characteristics cf the inhabitants of Miss sjippi, as st'args as it uiuy seem to those who only know tuein through recollcc tions of newspaper accounts of thsm durii.g the era of Brandon b.-ukism. The people of California have just under gone much rush acothor iuvoluulary purging, freeiag the u from u.o evil effects (.f the busi ness hafei-s cf the worst set of uuprinoipled specalatcra who have inle.'ted any portion cf our oountry since the days of Mississippi above reierred to. Three-fourths of the of mor handise frcm the Atlat tio const to Cali U\u\? up to *ery rooent'y, proved almost dead 1ocj>j, w??i.e the accuuil itorj of the profits of the lafcv* the of uu^ci* wet* the keepers of gambli ig aouiej and doggeries of *11 degrees. The change has come, however, over Cali fornia 0 affairs, and the result will not only be larger and steadier shipments of specie to this side, but fair payments for what California obtains from the Atlantic side, and a more uniform diffusion of property and wealth among her own people, wi.h better health and longer lives for them. Tho era of the true prosperity of California is, indeed, but jest dawning. " Consistency, thou art a Jewel!"?We have not until to-day had space at command in which to call the attention of the Star's readers, to the correspondence appearing some days ago in the columns of our talented, amia ble, courteous, ingonuous, entertaining, know ing, and truthful neighbor, (vide its cock and bull story about the Secretary of the Navy and Commodore Paulding.) between Mr. John Minor Botts on one side, and a worthy dooapi tated watchman in the Treasury building, the estimable scavenger of the First Ward of this city, and soma other distinguished gentleman enjoying the honor of serving on a Know Noth ing invitation committee with those patriotio k n. leaders, wherein the man that slept with John Tyler is invited to try the effect of his elo quence on cur late municipal oleation; and wherein that so succossful politician declines, with a very modest hint that Know-Nothing i<m may fairly attribute the loss of the Vir ginia election to its foolish nomination of Flournoy as the competitor of the great and foroible Wise, rather than himself. There is nothing more note worthy in the corres pondence in question, itself?which ig Botts all ovor. The point to be notioed, however, is the alacrity with which Washington Know Noth ingism estrew to the winds its indignation against the interference of foreigners in our municipal politics, alleged as its excuse for the outrages against common decency, good order and tho right of free speech in our land, beforo Browns' hotel on the Saturday night following the Virginia election. That is, when it seemed likely that the interforeuoe of for eigners in our municipal politics could be turned to the advantage of Know Ncthingisin. Verily, there is even les3 moral honesty?in tegrity of purpose?in the oath-bound, Eocret, j prescriptive. political icctety, than we gave it credit for?which was a very small modicum indeed, as our readers by this time are all aware. IheTwo-Horao Act?A no lees distinguish ed personage than the veritabla conductor cf I our talented, truthful, modest, ingenuous, en tertaining, and knowing neighbor (vide the Virginia election) is positively the author of I the *oheme cf making Know Nothingism eesu j to ride the Northern anti-slavery and South ern slavery horses at the sime time! At lca^t j such is the so coinmendably modest declara tion of our bashful neighbor itsoif This scheme is to pas3 resolutions in the Philadel phia Sanhedrim? 1. Protesting against tho enactment of the Nebrarka-Kansas bill under tin form of a pro test against the repoal of the Missouri com promise; i. posturing at full speed to tickle the fancy of the! 2.

This is essentially a funny world we live in. Who They Are ? Dr. Bartlet, tho new Pre sident of the Know Nothing National Council, is a full-blcoded Kentucky abolitionist, it ill Haid, while Parson P.uff, their newly elected Grand Chaplain of tho order, is a full-blooded "unjust, unrighteous, and damnable1' A!ass&? chcsetts preacher of abolitionism ?nd univer saliem?a lending one cf the three thousand clerical signers of the snti-Nebraska Kanew bill excommunication against Senator Dougl ar, the supporters of the bill in Congress, the President, and the South Up to this time he has only been known irom the vehemence of tho abolition politics in his sermons, so ultra( indeed, as that throughout New England he pasied for the best possible model of an ab olition pulpit Blang-whanger. Headed Again ?Just bcloro going to prosa, we ascertained that a dispatch w is recaived in this city, this morning, announcing that the revsnue cultcr on the Mobile station had brought into the jort cf Mobile the Kinney expedition barque referred to in another col umn cf to day's Star, as laying off tho coast of Florida awaiting her live freight. Sho is said to be loaded with boxes cf army ammu nition. We have every reason to beiieve that the District Attorney at Mobile was, this morning, telegraphed to libel her. 8o, it seems that our antioipation that the Govern ment would surely prove oompetent to man age the now phases of the Kinney expedition, was actually realized so soon A less ?The War Department received a dispatch this morning, announcing the sinking of a steamer (the Australia) on tho Missouri river, loaded with a cargo of Quartermaster's stores, ordnance and subsisteoce storef, in tended for the supply cf the Situs expedition.
