VYAsaiBSToa, Wsdaaaday, Aug. 1, 155. The Martyrdom of Rxbdeb ia complete. He was first officially denounced, then placed on bis purgation ; then accused ; then tned in the Cabinet Star Chamber ; then convicted ; then executed. Nothing could have been more in the spirit of the Adminstiation than the whole proceeding. Reedeb has been victimised simplr because he waa a Northern man ; and I do not perceive how Daw. sow can possibly get along with the sort of peopln among whom he is seat, otherwise than by promptly consigning to StiiWctellow all the powers of ths Administration. It ia s-tid that Dawson will be acceptable, becsuee he was an ardent friead of the Nebraska bill. Upon that point I can undeceive the small section of the Derrocra:y who still believe they can escape the consequences of the Nebraska blunder by rigidly adhering to the d ocwine of non-intervention. Mr. DaWsoh was originally opposed to the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and never, at any time, gave it toe sanctum of his judgment. He was whipped into the suppoit of the measure by various potential considerations. H hoped to be United States Senator from Pennsylvania, and the pretended principle of tbe bill had been accented by the party there. He also wished to conciliate support to the Homestead bill, and to that end consented to buy Southern votes by betraying bas constituents. Aad again, ke might have had in prospect something like what has occurred. That hope together with actual promiiss of reward, was the lever by which the integrity of Pennsylvania, New-Hampshire and Illinois delegations was overthrown. But a desperate attempt will be made to deprive .RbbDIB of the honors of his martyrdom. Erery big and little dog that bays through the party press will be vocal for a month to come with Rcedcb's land speculations. It appears some new ones bsve been tiumped up since those of which the public were" advised through the virtuous Atehi-soniaas who have been on duty in Kausas. upon which the Governor has beea convicted, after a moat laborious and conscientious, though secret, investigation by the President, assisted by the Missouri prosecution. The most flsgrant case, after that of the Delaware reservation lands at Fort Leavenworth, was tbe Pawnee City speculation at Fort Riley. Before referring to thi caae I should premise that Gov. Rebsek's defence was received but a week or two since, and that no delay has beea suffered to vex the spirit of hi nmiea. The two judges, Lecomftb and Elbobe, have replied to tbe charges against them, admitting their share ia the land operation, bat pleading ignorance of the law and regulations forbidding them. Whether this plea will save their judicial bacons is doubtful, but as they are Southern men and have affirmed the a fidelity to Slavery, the very question Which they were to decide sa disinterested aad impartial judges, by taking slarss a property into the Territory, it ia probable that any excuse will be laid hold of to secure to them immunity for that for which Rbbdbb i condemned. There are several counts ia the Pawnee City indictment. In th first place, an attempt waa made to lay out a town upon lands well known to be a military reservation. Then one of the features of tbe scheme wa that andemocralic contrivance of a eocopary. The President of this Company was CoL Mohtsobbbt, commandant of the post, and the entire Territorial Government were members. Next it is charged that the oaly mode of getting title to the lands covered by the town plat was to procure preemption right by false oaths. Not content with thia damning piling up of criminality, Rbbdbb called the Legislature together at Pawnee City, to increase the value of bia ooraer lots, and wkea expostulated with, replied that ao reasons bis "bl lie against him for aa doing, because be was equally interested in all the places where it area suggested or imagined the seat of Government could be located. Everybody will perceive at a glance that the ma. tenah are afaaadaat fa. a log aaJ variegated tale of vaiatny .gaurt Kit.., . sack . oa a. will satiafy every jood Nebraska Democrat that slavery and politic could possibly have aothmg to do with his removal, aad excite ki aatosuahmeai that saoh a corrupt adventure could have imposed apoa Gea.

Ia their sanction of the doctrine of constructive treason, ia the protection of Fede ral officer against th State Court, and now in the nullification of the law of Pennsylvania ia behalf of those of North Carolina, the trihanala named have shown themselves active and efficient enemies of the peace and dignity of the Coraraia-weslth. While a pure and independent judiciary is the shield of liberty, there is no power m the State which can be more easily converted into aa ally and instrument of tyranny. The corruption and cruelty of the judge were the immediate cause of the English re volution of 1688. Tbe same cause may effect a light result. It is certain that the doctrines of Judge KAWE'sdecisioa against Williabson ssp all independent legislative powers in the Northern States ; give Southern State laws on Slavery and why not oa all other subjects ! full force and effect at tbe North, aad, in short, point out a dissolution of the Union as the only remedy for the intolerable evils of a foreign jurisdiction. What eitixea of Pennsyl-vanis with the soul and mettle of a freeman would not declare for an instant severance of the connection, if the principle is to prevail that North Carolina laws give her citixens power to hold slaves for a single hour in Pennsylvania, when that privilege ia denied by ber statutes to himself. The mode of appointment makes all ths Federal Courts packed juries as betweea the North and South. The principle is perfectly settled and airsys eted upon in the Senate, tbat no Northern man shall be confirmed for any judicial1 appointment whatever, until he shall first hsve approed himself Southern in his views of the laws aad the Constitution. I remember a very remarkable ease in point. When Judse Sxitb Thompson died, Mr. Tyleb norninsted John C. Spencb to he Justice of the Supreme Court. He was rejected, thoutb regarded as the ablest lawyer of Nea-York. Tbe caue of rejection was nadisguieed. He waa too firm and too conservative to be trusted oa the Slavery question. Next Chancellor Walwocth was nominated. Hie nomination lay in tbe Senate fear or five months, and wonld have been rejected because of a casual extrajudicial remark not favorable to some certain pretension of tbe South. He was withdrawn. Judge Nelson was sppnin'ed because it was known that he could be rehed upon as a Northern Judge with Southern principles. The lime for bereg mealy moutfced on this subject bas gone by. Tb hope of justice for the No th, or for any Northern citisen, in cases involving Southern pretensions aa to Slavery, ia utterly fallacious And it is just aa certain that the time for richUug such a monstrous snd unendnrable evil is now present. One word as to Wb celeb's slaves. She waa asked if she could leave her children, and remain in a free State. Now she had been sold to the South only a year gn. without her children, from this District, and if she had gone she would never have seen them acain. Affected by an act of sach horrible ciuelty, the lsdy who sold the woman entreated Mr. Whseleb to buy her before sue set out for the Georgia plantations, which he did. The transsctien is honorable to all concerned ; but the woman well knew, from what she had seen a thousand times, that on her master's first reverse she would be sold again to the South, and separated from her children forever.

He -win, probably, be a Southern man, to compensate the substitution for the fiery Soplb of Louisiana, of the very moderate Dodob of Iowa. But it is thought expedient to wait for the very latest dispatches from the present Minister, aa he has a habit of changing his mind, one of tbe privileges of politicians of which Mr. Buchanan ha made tbe mot during hai public career. He may cone lade at the eleventh hour that the quieter is the better part. Tbe British mission is at this time about the pleas ao test sinecure under the Government, and so is likely to continue during the present war, which wUl, doubtless, outlast Mr Pibbcb's Administration, and perhaps several succeeding ones-Mr. Btjchanan is coming home, it is understood-if at all, upon a Presidential excursion. I know of no Democrat, proper, who will occupy a more advantageous position in the coming party struggle tbsn the favorir son of the Keystone. The party ia much inclined to atone for the blunder of 1852, by a return to the old fogies who wer then se contemptuously spurned. Mr. B. is oa the shady side of sixty, though ia 1842, ia his celebrated tilt with Mr. Clay, he owned to only thirty-six. To be elderly and a fogy is now nothing mose abas an amiable weakness, if aot a merit of tke negative kind. Fortunately for ki standing with the country, Mr. B. has been absent daring tbe recmt scandalous derelictions of his party from its pledges and professions, and he will not be held responsible for the Nebraska episode and its train of infamies. His time-honored competitors, Cass and Mabcy, have beea placed by their years upon the retired list, and ara not therefore in tbe list ef competitors. Thia will secure to Mr. Buchanan the undivided support of Pennsylvania, and with Pennsylvania at his back, Mr. B. could have extorted a nomination from the last Convention. Gea. Pibbce will be ia his way, because he ess sppoint, a ke ia doing, all th delegates from the great cities. But tha rural districts are yet in an invincible majority, aad I regard the Cunvea-tiongameas almost ia Mr. Buchanan's bands. But, according to present appearances, that is the very game which is certain to lose before tka people. Since noticing the nomination ef Cbasb, Fob asd BBlKKXBBorr, as the Republican Fuaioa candidates for State offices ia Ohio. I hare received very different account of tb prospects of the party there. It is now th general epinioa that Cbasb will be elected by a crushing majority, that ke will carry eighty out of the ninety counties, and that not a relic of Silver Grsytsm or Hunker Democracy will be left ia the State. The fosailiferous remains of the Whig party will be represented in the canvass by Hon. John Scott Habbisor, ai candidate for Governor. The raise teem with article denouncing th people of Pennsylvania and tbe Free Skates tor the liberation of Wbeblbb's slaves. I ahauld not be forgotten that this organ af the Executive Government is paid for work of thia hid at the rateof nearly aae thousand dollars per dsy, mora than two-thirds of which is paid by people of the North. Without the stipend it receive from aha Treasury ao suck journal could exist a month ia this District.

Aquiday. CASTLE GARDEN. Bsw Emigrant are fretted on Ltadinj. Honored is that house which for generation after generation has served aa aa ornament, aad in its old age commences a aew career of practical use fumess. Aad our venerable Castle Garden is very highly honored that, after half a century of service a a military rallying place and a fashionable resort for the seekers of amusement, now whea it wail are cracked aad crumbling and all its early glory departed, it ia vouchsafed the privilege of granting a boon to all humanity, aa well as to tke City, of which it is tbe gateway. In the old time, New-York received Lapaybttb in Castle Garden with its most profuse hospitality ; to-day hundreds of the brothers of Lafayette come over from vine-clad France, and in Castle Garden receive the first welcome to America. So, after all, tbe charure is aot so very great. Instead of one ovation a year to some distinguished foreigner, henceforth there will be s perpetual ovation to thousands of sover-eiins. And, whereas only straggling couples have beretofote promenaded the balcony aad pledged their mutual troth, henceforth it ia utterly givea up to young and old, lads and lasses, old men and crusty maids to wander at will throughout it, talking of the good old times snd plotting for future reunion on Western prairies, or arranging for the services of the clergyman, and the quiet cottage and the bairns that are to be bora. The new order of things is fairly inaugurated. We went down yesterday to see bow it works. Three ships loaded with emigrants arrived up from Quarantine, and it was a busy time all round. Compose yourself, reader, while we tell about it : A high board feaee, through which the eye cannot peep, nor over which the most curious boy can climb for it is thirteen feet high shuts in tbe proper inmates and shuts out intruders ; among the " out " are all emigrant runners. On Thursday several of these hopeful gentlemen dressed themselves in emigrants' clothes aad tried to gain admittance under the pretence of having been landed m company with those juat arrived. But the dodge did not work. Others pleaded earnestly to get in to see a father or a brother, a sister or other relative, who was among the passengers. But they were too well known to palm themselves off on tbat pretence. Yesterday a few did aot scruple to manifest their dislike by open demonstrations of hostility. Besides continually hooting at the employes of th Commission, aa they passed in snd out. they attacked one or two of them with stones. They went st Commissioner Gabbigue so fiercely that he ealrad the Potieeto his aid. Commissioner Ktf-nedy drew a revolver upon them, which had the effect of cooling them somewhat. It is feared, however, the end ia not yet. The Commissioners, and those under them, will go armed for the present, and will be ready for any emergency. These runners hsve sucked the life-blood of erra-rrants so long that they think they have a right to it. And now, when upon a sudden " their occn-patinn' gone." they feel as melancholy and dissatisfied with the world a do the liquor-dealers where a Maine Law is honestly observed. A policeman waved the leeches aside, and we presented our face at the grated opening of a narrow door. A word assured the porter, and we entered, registering our names where some score had preceded us, sa is tbe rule for all visiters to do. Now passing the heavy door of old Castle Clinton tbat waa its name until 1923. let us push straight through to the opposite aide and out upoa the wharf. Here ia a busy time. A heavily-loaded emigrant ship has just anchored in the stream, aad the barge Pilgrim, towed by a steamer, is now just fastened to tke pier with all her company and their luggage. The ship is the Mary, of Havre, and her passengers are of the better ciesa. atout, clean looking Hollanders, hopeful and hearty peasants from France men who have a trade In their heads, skill in their brawny arms, and money in their pockets, and women who promise to be helps meet for industrious aad intelligent men. As they leave the barge, they are examined with reference to heir health, and to discover if any of them should be conveyed to the Hospital. Then they enter the Garden and present themselves immediately at the desk ia the centre of the room. Tnere their names are registered, and the names and number of their family, the ship tbey come in, their point ef destination, the route they prefer taking to reach it, the amount of money that they bring, dtc. The folio wing ia the number of emigrant arrived these last three days, aad the amount of money that they brought with them. By the Attart 240 passengers 415.000 By tbe JjrufgMArr. ...450 paasengers 4,753 By the Ii 12 families 238 By the Mary 300 passengers 14.434 If any are ignorant of the routes west an officer points out the peculiarities af each, shows the nearest cut to distant places, and informs them of the prices of tickets. Map of the State and of the route are hung about the toom, aad if the officer does his duty, no intelligent man need deside until he knows the general features of the lend that lie between the promised land and Castla Garden. This information is what almost every emigrant deeds ; and the officer charged with the duty should be one of the best of men. The moment that he recommend one route above another or nrgei to the selection of this one ot the other, ke has violated a rule of the establishment and is worthy te be kicked oat. Next, tk emigrant is shown to tha baths. Wa jcin tbe crowd of aaalee that flock ia to the right. Here we find a Urge room, La tk centre of which bang sevt-ral coarse roller towels, aad along th aide ia a deep trough of running Crotoa. Thia ia the wash-room. Soap abouads we hope ao sao-tives of niggardly economy will ever make it lea plenty. Behind a screes that reaohe across the room is th basin for bathing. A desen or two caa be accommodated in it at tha same tixoa. Indeed, every facility ia granted tbe aew corner, whatever may be ki eondiuoa oa entering it, te leave Casli Gardaa persoaaly clean.

The barge is soon reloaded with the baggage, and the steamer again fastening on, tbey are borne to the several depot they are to go by without eost, and deposited just ia time to take be next train onward. So does the honored old Caatla enshla tka sioners ef Emigration at least to fulfill their fnAesu tion of dispatching ths business of the Board promptly, protecting the Vity from the annoyance of an immense horde of straacer utterly ianeraat of the name of a street, and eartirely at th matey of heartless runners acid leadlords.

The women sat in groupe, talking in some of those Crooked old-countrv Lnffn&aa that n.L. w der how any talking can be done them until the , ... people come oi age, some knilBng, some cutting and eating slices of rye German bread aad cheese, some patching and fixing up tha wardrobes of their family. They would not have cut a very fine figure in the ball-room of the Yaoht Crab last night, but la view ef their healthy forms aad faces, we would like to see them matched in the dairy, the kitchen, or the field with as many of our pale New-York beauties. The prevalent head dress resembled sach cushions as the ladies construct of drugget snd stuff with hay, set upon the crown of the bead, fastened by a broad belt over the head and under the chin. They wore abundant woolea skirts, and some were of no meaner breadth about the hips than our Newport aaeens when girded with a couple of the " corded "but for a different reason. It was a strapping dame, we ssw, who having eaten no more than the mere nubbin of a long German loaf, proceeded to pocket the big balance. She lifted up her frock, aad into a sack sowed fast to her petticoat that more than half a city bushel might be stowed in dropped it as one might drop her thimble. As the pocket iasonly htevd,om vrttiiar w who newrr bet will wager our inkstand tbat no pickpocket ever-lightens her of the load. The whole castle is theirs to ramble in. and none hinder any, wherever they choose to stop in it. Tbe best seats are free, and numbers that at Jenny Lino's Concerts sold at fabulous prices, were open to the poorest. In a comer, a lad sella bread and cheese, and milk, at what seems a high price, bat is really cheap when it is remembered that a franc is always taken there for a shilling. Sorry are we te add that there is a shadow of danger thai the Commission mar aot be able to retain possession of the Garden for its present excellent uee. But there is a little cloud in tke Councilmen's Chamber. Castle tiardea la the Canadian aas (W mlttee. On Friday afternoon the Committee on Public Health of the Board of Couricilnven present. Mcaara. Rannby. Slevin and Smith) met in the City Hall, to consider the report from she Board of Aldermen as to tke use of Caskle Garden for an Emigrant Depot, and to hear parties in relation thereto. Messrs. Cocinhoven and Coorca were absent Mr. A. J. Pebby appeared on behalf of the remonstrants. He quoted largely frota the comma-cattoa from the Comptroller, in reply to a reaoka-tion relative te leasing Castle Garden to the Com-mtasteners of Emigration, preasated tu ths Boards AMenasa, May SI, 1155. After reciting the history ef the various eevenaMs te which Castle Gardea had beea s ejected, as folly sad explicitly set forth in that affl-etsl deeaiasat, Mr. Pebby said It lieiaii a qaestiaa whether tbe present use and apeUeattoe rths pise is eat a viola-tlea of tbe as as framed by ths Stale te tk City.

The aerm ppeaaed by tkrovrtag Joaah overtaard. The Oppitioa apprared rather aafry at seemi the epportaatty pjip treat their haaus. and they had good tea, ft . The eessiea draws fast to iu cleae t the eetaxbtts of easy power during the recess, uhoUMw4 by Far-hameBtary bearing, await tamksteva wass ever they aaay be. There at a period M temptinffor Her Majesty's Ofpoaitoa f be-, sides everythiag goes ao much the wrosg; wsy, that it would eertamly hare beea very odd if a new Mini try, aot fettered by the antecedents of their predeceaeors,' eoali tvot have managed matters so as te treat Parliament after the recess with something, hew-ever small in real value, still affording mm satisfaction when compared with the absolute meagerness of the present. It was very-tempting indeed. There has also beea sos-sidersble exertioa used to force tbe Gevera-ment, by personal attacks, iato some indiscretion, which wonld have brought heme te them tbe fact, that the Govenuaeat was very-near acting up to the advice of Lord JmrL and woald have fiaished by accepting ths) disgraceful proposition to which Lord Jean- had pledged his word and mflaeace, were it not that they got orders to the eenirary from Locis Napolbok Dobapabts, orders started 'irrevocable" by tbe discharge from erlce of Dbovyn bb Lbdys, the worthy eoBeagn. and accomplice of Lord John; which 'of coarse rallied them all to passive submission, snd enabled Lord Classroom te write, on the 8th of May, a clever dispatch is tha negative, for which great credit is givea to ban. The fact of tbe said " circumstance " admits of no doubt ; it is universally knows, and aa attentive comparison of the dates would convince the iaeredaltty ef the veriest Thomas -, but it is one thing to know, another thing to substantiate a fact officially ia Parliament ; and there was no possibility of wringing a word from tbe Miaisters to convict them. They love honor well, bat they love their places more. So they preferred to "eat dirt," as the Turks would say 1 they swallowed everything rather thaa rhtk tha tenantry of ths treasury bench. First, the elegant literary Baronet (Bclwbb Lyttos,) tried aa "assault" by individaalixJag tha merits of the Clabbitoos dispatch, drawing a difference betweea him who is hat responsible for his own opinion, and the Premier as ' responsible for the whole Cabinet. Nesr that would not do, of coarse. However true the argument tn private, ia official form, it was a mistake. Lord Palbbbsto did not fail to take advsntage of k. Up he started, and retorted by saying, bow can yea be s ignorant, or so insincere, as to pretend that the Foreign Secretary could write' avtbing but the decision of tbe Cabinet t The aobio Lord felt tbe advsntage of his poaitioa ; ha grew quite bold, and seasoned his answer with personal invective of the gravest kind, quite in a Billingsgate style. He had, haw-ever, to rue his boldness very soea. Mr. Disbabli gave it back ta him with sach ft pulverizing usury ; he aeeoapaaied the lashing with se confidently throwing ft in their teeth, that there was a period whea tha disgraceful Austrian terms were cordially accepted by the Govern meat m how&tm ha spoke with sach confidence of tbe highness ef his information, and looked se pugnacious,! that the noble Lord dared absolutely aot sa' much as wince, but accepted tha flageQatioa with aa impassivity of silent indignation, sach ' as ao man with hie conscience elear aver has1 mastered ia any Parliament aa earth. :Dis-" Baku seeing his aatagoaist shrinJc, weuad aphis eastigatioa ia these very words:' -Tha' First Minister af tha Crew, has shewa te ma 1 to-night, that if tha honor aad tnteresta af tha ' country be aay loager intrusted ta sis ear,' the first win be degraded, aad tbe last wH -be betrayed."
