The models have beon successfully worked; and it only remains to be seen whether tho foroo of tho wind will bo suffloiont , whon thus applied, to eivo vonselfl ibo vcloolty of ordinary sailing ships. If this problom is satisfactorily solved, tho Diario Bays it is ovldent that a windmill shin will bo able to sail just as well with n contrary as with a fair wilid—because, it being perfootly easy to alter the position of tho wings, thoy may bo always opposed to the wind, whatever dlreotlon it may blow from The inventor has asked for the protection of a patent from tho Cuban Government; and , as soon as His granted, he will commence to make bis ex periments upon a largo scalo.

CORRESPONDENCE FROM WASHINGTON. (CornMponltiioeofThePreM.] ' ' ¦Wasdinqtok, August 3d, 1857. . The Southern,opposition to the Administration on tiie Kansas .question, or rather on Governor Walker'8 present attitude, will not bo powerful in tho noit Congress. Tho expectation that Jcfforson Bavli would lead ' this opposition is likely to be disappointed ' . Evon allowing the "allegation that Governor Walker has intervened," surely, that basis is quite too narrow upon which to found a political or party revolution. The prinoiplo that tho majority shall rule, and that tho constitutions of States and Territories ahull bo submitted to the people for ratification—these are just, as ' eacrod to extreme Southern politicians, and havo just as'often been advocated and acted "out, as they are to publio men in tho North.
