CORRESPONDENCE FROM WASHINGTON. [¦Cor respondence of Ihe Presa.] Washington, July 31,1857. Our neighboring South American States and confederacies do not look upon the United States with the jealousy and projudico that have heretofore characterized their intercourse with U3. Events of comparatively recent occurronee have opened their oyos to their real advantages, and to the snares in which they had been entangled by their own prejudioea and tbo suggestions ok' foes to their and our own interests. This desirable result has been achieved mainly by tho lenient and indulgent bearing of out government. When flagrant outrages had been committed upon our citi¬ zens in theirpersons and their property, we neither hectored nor punished without explanation. Wo calmly stated our rigbtdwith a resolve to maintain kict protw* them. We were strong and they were treuk, and; wo uould afford to bo generous. Na-Uonalitios were allowed, to exist, which, if English precedent had been followed, w...

THE ttBESTIOK OF KANSAS-SHALL THE , MAJORITY IUJIE ? When te .Nebraska-Kansas bill was under discussion , in Congress, Mr. Buchanan was quietly,.discharging'his duties as American Ministers the British government. He could not, with'propriety, have expressed an opinion - as to the Merits of the controversy, or the expe- diencyfofintioduclngtho bill obliterating the MissoiirTHne. But he was always a careful ob- server^"p'ubAic events. Het&d rea& ' tbo do- bates^gn^ had watched the ' pi ogress . of the excitement before the Nebraska bill became a law. lA; statesman so accustomed to public affairs, and'so long identified with the.legisls- tion of 'Congress on the subject of slavery, was peculiarly, competent to distinguish the true path of duty on the new question which had grojm'.ouf of the old one. The people, instinctively appreciating Mr. Buohawu's attitude " , and recalling his long life of fidelity to the Constitution, and.his safe, solid, and conservative ' -ch...

STATE- POLITICS We give below tho recent corrospopdoiicc on the subject of introducing into this State a new system of conducting, campaigns, and invite attention to the reasons given by tho Stato Committee for rejecting it. The proposed innovation is repudiated with boldness and distinctness. The Committee truly assert tb.it the Democratic party of ourState has never formally approved tlie system of campaigning before nias's meetings by Executive candidates. The addresses of Governor BiafcER, in 1851, were induced by the course of the opposing candidate, and wero made with a protest by him against tho propriety of the practice upon original grounds. II' this wero a campaign like thnt of last year,when the public mind was greatly excited, and when National issues were involved, or if the same necessities existed that made the contests of 1851 and 1854 so memorable, the case would bo very different. Now, however, we are at peace among ourselves. The Democrats and old-line Whi...

WEST CHESTER Homicide A case of homicide occurre4 in this county on Saturday morning, concerning which various reports are afloat, bat the principal facts are briefly as follows: About day-break on Saturday morning, Mr. Wm. Lynch, constable of Wes^ Chester, and his assistant, Mr. C. M. Layman, went, at the instance of the District Attorney, to the house of Wm. B»ugh, of West Pikeland, somo ten miles north of Lionville, for the purpose of arresting him on a warrant for an assault and battery with intent to kill, he having, a few days ago, driven off a constabl? of tbe neighborhood, who visited his premises on a like errand. They found him at his wood-pile splitting wood, and having approached within a few feet of him, informed him of the object of their call—Layman being somewhat in advance of his colleague. He at once raised the axe, and swore he would kill the 6rst man that offered to .lay hands on him. Layman, looking bin: in the eye, and at the same1 r \ 1 I r • . ' i I &am...

A WORD ABOUT THE WESTERN MAIL. Change not alway> Reform. There has been much talk lately about improving the mail service between Philadelphia and the principal commercial points in the " Great West," and wo learn that the discussion of the subject has induced the Post-office Department to project some new schedules for the mail trains departing in that direction. The changes proposed are intended to embrace tlie mails going' west from New York and Baltimore, as well as those from this city. It seems to be the design of the Post-office Department to arrange such hours of departure from Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore, respectively, aa will insure a junction of all three lines at Columbus, Ohio, at one hour, the mails from the three cities to go forward from that point by tho same train. If this design is carefully executed, it will, doubtless, be a great improvement upon all existing arrangements but, on the other hand, if due precanti on is not used, the change may ...

TH£ DEF£MCES OF PHILADELPHIA. 4-ltlipngli Philadelphia is not so immodiatcly on the sea as New York, yet she would possesB no immunity from tho assault of a maritime power, if the channel of the tranquil and gentle Delaware should be undcfended'or unobstructed. The latter means of defence—that of cutting off all communication with the sea—might be in harmony with the nature of (in inert and sluggish power like thd great Russian Empire, but could never bo tha truo policy of an active people like ours, full or resources, and as happy as they are ready in practical oxpedionte to meet the mast unexpected emergencies. A channel of no | great intricacy, of less than a hundred miles in extent, winds its way from the Capes, so familiar to tho lovers of a plunge in the suift up the middle of tlio broad bay of the Delaware, turning Stony Point, passing Reedy Island, where the Bay and River repeatedly, though imperceptibly, chango into one another! then opening to the right and left as it ...
