Spirit of the Horning Press. We must necessarily be brief in our notices of the press to-day. The Republic of this morning is almost wholly absorbed in noticing the dissatis faction of the Democracy in different parts of the country, on account of the Presidential appointments. In replying to the Union, on this subject, it says: "Now, the Union has challenged any m m one to snow an instance in which any ap pointee of the present administration has refused to abide by the Compromise which has been embodied in their platform.? We infer, therefore, that the gift of office is the price of peace; and that the dis satisfied Democratic conservatives ought not only to be satisfied with this plan of -caulking the leaks in the ship of State with commissions, but ought to rejoice that in surrendering all to buy off those wh...

EVENING STAR. A Tight Flaca. While sitting at our desk the other day, and laboring assiduously with our pen, scissors and paste, to make out a reada ble paper for our patrons, we were sud denly "frightened from our propriety," by the entrance of a gentleman, ex claiming, "For God's sake, help me to see what's the matter! I've got some dreadful things?scorpion or snake?in the leg of my pantaloons. Quick?quick ?help me!" "What's the matter ?" asked we "The matter!" he exclaimed; "oh, lielp me! I've got something here, which has just run up my leg ! Some infernal scorpion or lizzard, I expect! Oh, I can't let it go ; I felt it move then. Oh, these pants without straps ! I'll never wear another pair open at the bottom as long as I live. Ah! I felt it again.'* "Feel what ?" we inquired, standing at the same time, at a respectable distance from the gentleman. "I don't know what it is. I was just passing that pile of rubbish there, in front of your office, and I felt it dart up my leg, as ...

LOCAL AFFAIRS. The Gas Nuisance.?We regret the ne rcssity that exists for our continued allu sion to this subject. It is by no means a pleasant one : but having the inward assurance that 210 personal motive what ever dictates our course, and being backed up in it by the great body of the people, we shall faithfully persevere, until the evil complained of is effectually abated. From what we learn of the Acting Super intendent of the Washington Gas Com pany, we feel confident tfiat he is a man of too much probity, patriotism, and good sense, to continue to inflict on any ]>ortion of the inhabitants of the national metropolis an offensive nuisance that is assuredly (whatever may be said to the contrary) injurious to the pleasures, the health, and the pockets of all residing in its vicinity. If, however, there are any persons so verdant as to suppose that we intend to withhold our attacks on this di.-gusting abuse of public property, they may rest assured they will find themselves mi...

EVENING STAR. Singular Baco 01 Human Beings. There are now in London two very sin gular human beings, of a race which has hitherto been very little known to the civilized world. They came from South Africa, where they are called Eorthmen. Thev are totally distinct from all other known African races?as much so as if they had dropped upon this earth from another planet. They are diminutive in si?e?mere pygmies?and unacquainted even with the art of building huts. They shelter themselves in caves and crevices of the earth; when these are wanting they make artificial scoopings on the surface, which they line with leaves and cover with branches. The Hottentots and Bushmen are the avowed enemies of the Earthmen, and when they meet them will shoot them down like vermin. The poor little defenceless Earthmen have no refuge but in holes, trees, or thickets, and the tribe is fast verging to extinction.? They are a poor, weak people?one of! Nature's freaks?and destined not to per petuate their r...

EVENING STAR. The Fourth of July. The Cincinnati Sun has the following article upon the propriety of a proper celebration of the approaching anniver sary which we commend to the consider ation of our readers: The anniversary of the political birth of our country among the nations of the vorld is approaching. Among all people, the great eras of their lands have been celebrated. If any have cause to call to remembrance the past events of their history, how much more so has the scion ! of the great American Republic? Many nations owe their standing to shameless acts of piracy and bloodshed; to atroci ties that will not bear description: pil laged cities?burning towns?violated fe males?blood?carnage?and death, have been their pathway to a national exist ence. With such reminiscences, the Uni ted States have no connection. A high 1 minded people refused to bend their neck i lo the yoke of tyranical power, and dis solved their connection with a despot. 1 War was waged against them?it only...

It is peculiarly character istic of the man: Citizen's?I come to speak to you on a subject which concerns you all?which is above party and above politics?and in which I have no other interest than the rest of you : I speak of the road to the Pacific Ocean, and especially that route for which it is marked out by the hand of Nature, and which has been described by Fremont and Leroux. I came to speak of that route, and to see a small party start to explore it. There sit the heads of the parLy (pointing to Superintendent Beale and Mr. Harris Heap) 3'oung in years, but old in experience, and well tried in all the hardships and dangers of distant and adventurous travel.
