   New York Daily-Times (Newspaper) - September 13, 1855, New York, New York                                FROM WASHINGTON. NaTal Hefonn Blll-The ike Jadgee-Calllerala Afl-irat OX, Mond.T, Sept 10, ISM. The to-day the ?eform bill, as it li called, wbieh profiles for the retirement from active .orv.CL of "ctlon of officers, and other, in J wppoMthta Hit will be forwarded hy telegraph Tbe trouble in regirJ to the Territorial Court of Kansas Joes not dunlnleb. The position of the Presi- dent 10 to these so-called legislative tribunals .s clearly unreliable Ho hai of right no control over the leaare of Judjes but the practice sustained by thi decisions the Supreme Court and the action of the Senate hw been way. The President has no mart power by the terms of ihe Constitution to dls- nlHfl a Judge of a Territorial Court than to remove the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The Courts ef the District of Colombia belong to the itnvo of tDfta-eonsiltnltonal or merely legislative fourti ti those of the that Is, they are not named in tne Constitution, although it mast be admit- ted thai they wiihla tbe designation oC lafe- nor eomrU. The same question of power In Ibe ident to remove at pleasure the District hat railed, as that now agitated concerning tbe terri- torial But hitherto thle. question been evaded, although the ultra of Executive power have strenuously eontsnded for the prerogative in the former aa they now dn In the latter case. This subject is the more Interacting now, from the existing on the bench of the Clrcnlt Court District, by the demise of Judge CHANCII. It IB oropoaed to promote Judge CRAwronn, the Criminal Court, to the vacant Justlteahlp, and to Oil the place now occupied by him by the appointment of MOHIOOMBI.Y BLAH, now Solicitor of the Court of Claims. The sudden reappearance of RICRAKDROV of Illlnola ae dry nvrse of the Nesraska Iniquity, snd of Dr. OLDS O( Ohio, wko officiated aa Its accoucheur, through bis po- sition of OhaJrman of the Committee of the Whole, naturally excited comment. The outrage with which they e teas' identified baa been developed In a man 0-3 r to iven such veterans In political excnses as tneac nlves. But It Is past remedy or amendment, and their visit to the seat of Government can hardly be rooneeted with that monstroas transaction. It la sug- howevir, that they have been Invited here to manage the accessary electioneering for the Northwest, which to be arranged at Washington, in order to farther the nomination of General PIERCE by the Cincinnati Convention Colonel RICHARDSON is ths Acfiatct of Senator DOCOLAS, bat this relation- ship by no meacR precluded his acceptance of a special agency for Gen ernl PIKICB Tbe Illinois Senator has deferred his claims upon Ibe White House until 1860, wisely judging, perhaps, that even ths best and most popular candidate wtiora the Democracy csn present will be floored In 1636. In rtus view of ib- case a general declination of ths magnates of the party in favor of the present efthe Executive seems to be the policy likely to be panned IB the improbable contingency of PURGE'S the labors of Colonel RICIIAHDJOM, and those Mr. DOCOLAS' other friends, would no doubt be highly rewarded, and It ii suggested that the War De- partment la held open to Col. R.'a acceptance. As to Dr. OLDS, I hardly know what preferment to suggest for him. As Chief Engineer of the Collins line he wonld do good service, for without his aid the si era. pay to that Institution could never have been ear- ned. But there IB no public compensation attached to that post. His aspirations probably do not reach to the chieftainship of a department, else hejmight be put In nomination for the General Puat office. He his had some experience in the subordinate service of that branch of the government, having been employed at the rate of 96 per dmy In ferreting out depredators upon the mail bags, and rogues In gineral, while enjoying the tttum it dignitatem of a seat In Congress with Its 46 per day. Hoping "1 don't in these few remarks upon two conspicuous political will for the present take my leave of then with the en- quiry of, penonal tnoUvea asldo, what do they DOW think of squatter sovereignty Notwithstanding toe statements of Ma. HAMMOND'! I learti upon good authority that the cause of his diimiual was act a refusal to pay money as order- id by the Secretary of the Treasury, but another and a more serious allegation. It is said, also, that there Is little doubt that Mr LATH m will accept, notwithstand- ing his large Income from bis legal practice. There Is ao friendship between Senator Gwm anil the lately diarnlsaed Collector, and he is said to have recommend and urged bts removal. The quarrel between them Is a recent affair Mr LATHAM waa a candidate in the Democratic Convention agitast BIOIER for Governor, and came within seven votes of beating him. Tha Democratic opposition to HIGLER in chiefly founded on Know-NofUag Issues, but it must not from that be In- ferred that Mr. LATHAM or the Administration fona vrr to a decaying faction. This attempt to buy out lha Vmtrican Organ, the Know-Nolblng press published here for some ten or l w live months past, has failed. Tho rupture of It) a nego- tiations is said to have occurred on the point of what candidate for the Presidency should be niipponed by ths paper under its new proprietors. It was nndurstood that one of the partita insisted upon hoisting the llag of Live Iloax e, and nailing It to the mast of the Organ, there to remain while a stick stood, or a plank of the party floated. The more discreet of thoie cenud In the undertaking did not oppose this arrange- ment from any hostility to a live or a dead boat, but suggested that the dose would be too strong for the party. Coming immediately after (be Philadelphia Convention, Live Hoax would be to the party (Ike swallowing prussic acid by way of remedying the ef- fects of an over- dose of calomel. Under these circum- stances, no present chanfe is expected in the editorship and proprietorship of ths party AQUIDAY. Bsefey Show hi Rivalry of Colored BAIHUM'S Baby Show in Boston took place on Tuesday. The papers generally pake fan at It, but the re IB oa of this is plain enough when it is remem- bered that Master SCOTT, the .Yew- York prize baby, on the ground, and completely eclipses all the achieve- ments of Yankeedoin In this line. The Courier la especially savage. It malignantly that Mai- ter SCOTT looks like a butcher's and de- with an outburst ef wrath, that BAFI.VUH knows that the babies are not a fair specimen of the babifs of tha country that an organ- grinder at the kead of any alley in tiaiton can bring forth the equal, in every point, of the NJTW- York aud Uiat he has not in bin whole collection a htartlcr li protents, furthermore, lhal the mothers, with four- tttn eTceptlons, are itw homelieot congregation of tha sex ever aisemblud within a hall in New-England.'- The Courier adds The prize of oue hnndred dollars was awanlc.l to XiLLAii MABIHA TBACEY, two and a. half years old, a vtry pretty child, with handsome hair and elegant colored nurse. The Committee were two of I hem voting the prize to a Charlestowa infant, wtiile three set their hearts upon ZII.LAH but why they did let every mother of the duped three hundred ask. let! that she had done something, and her proud father, who IB really a very handsome man, blushed modi-sty, when be sat prompting lUartuv and Col orator on the plaifarm. Tbe strangest looking people ever seen together are met at this exposition not) it may be said, figuratively if not truly, that baby shows make strange bedfellows.

This In nature, slightly THE COLORED BABT IUOW. The Baleinaa show of colored babies is quite as de- rent as that of us iival In the Music Hall the   Battle Traktlr FlKFORESKBASTor-oL, Aug. 18, 18S5. MY LORD In my dispatch of Hie 14th instant I Informed your Lordship that I had reason to believe that the Russians would attempt, by a vigorous at- tack, to force us to raise too slego. This they endeavored to do an the morning of the 16th, but the result was mast glorious to those of tbe allied troops who had the good fortune to be engaged. Tho action commenced ueforo daylight, by a heavy column of Russians, under tho command of General LirBAMDi, and composed of the Oth and 17th Divisions, with the 4th and 7tn Divisions In reserve, attacking the advance posts of the Sardinians. The ground occupied by thorn is on commanding hills on the right of the position, on tho left bank of Ibe Baubaio river, wtere it formn KB junction with the Teheroaya, with two advanced posta on the opposite side. These were held with very determined gallantry for a considerable Mme, but being separated from their supports by the river, and not having tbe protection of artillery, liiey wore compelled to leave the most ad- vanced uno. About tbe same time the 5th and 12th divisions, to which was added a portion of the 17th, advanoed against the bridge of Traktir, hdd by one battalion of French infantry of the line, who were Cor a short time obliged to yield and fait buck upon the main supports with these, however, they quickly retook the bridge at the point of the baynnot. Again the Russians attacked with persevering cour- age, and were enabled to follow up thoir advantage by gaining she heights which rise precipitously on each side of Ifae road their success was but momentary they were driven bach across the river, leaving the ground covered with dead and wounded. Tte Russian General, in no way daunted by the fail- ure of his two altomptn, ordered a second column, of equal force to the flrst, to attack they advanced wltb such impetuosity, covered by the fire of their numerous artillery, that a third time the bridge waa carried, and the heights above it -were crowned, but they were again repulsed, and retired In great confusion into the plain, followed by the bayonets of our gallant Allies. The general officer who commanded the Russian column, and who IB supposed to bo General READ, wua killed, and In tils possession was found the orders for the battle, signed by Prince GORSTSCIIAKOFF, who com- manded in person. Prom these kt would appear that it -was a most deter- mined attempt to force us to raise tho siege. Had they succeeded, Dalahlava was to have been attacked hy one portion of tho army, while the heights on whlcb we now arc were to havo boen stormed with the other at the same lime a vigorous sortie was to have made from the town on the Pfench works, on our ex- treme left, from the quarantine, and another on the works on oar extreme right on Mount Sspoune. Tbe action which I have endeavored te describe is moat glorious to tbe arms or tbe French and the Sardi- nian troops. To meet the force of the Russians the former had but infantry, and four batteries of ar- tillery engngrd the latter bnd men In position, actually engaged, and 24 pieces of cannon. The Russian force consisted of from to men, wilb. 180 pieces of artillery, and cavalry to the amount of This disparity of numbers will readily explain to your lordship the difficulty, that would havo been ex- perienced had an attempt been made to follow up the advantage by a pursuit. Tha Russian retreat, mart- over. was protected by the fire from Uie heavy in position on the Mackenzie heights. The loss sustained by the Russians: is estimated at between and men. Including 600 prisoners, wbUe on the part of the Allies it does not amount to more than men. This brilliant affair has cnnaad the greatest delight among the ranks of lha Allied army and while It odds flesh lustre to the gallant achievements of the French arnur it la with stie utmost pleasure that I hare to record the Intrepid conduct and gallant bearing of the Sardinian troops, under Geniraln'ELLA MABMOBA.who have lor the flrst limo met, conquered, and shed their Mood against our common enemy who is now disturb- ing the peace of Europe. Captain MOWDRAT'B buttery of 33-pounder howitzers) was placed tn advance with the Sardinian tronpn, and did most excellent service in preventing the advance of the enemy's artillery.

I regret that I am unable to give a morn detailed ac- count of the part performed by the Sardinians, as up tu this time I havo not received General MAW- MORA'S report.

The Lord I'AMMUHE, Tbe Bombardment of Uuaslnst Account. lit Nord riabhshes an extract from a letter, dated Ilelsingfors, Aug. 13 two days after the fleets had left In wliich we read: "After forty-six hours' bombardment, and the expenditure of from to shells, all the fortifications, all the batterien, and all the works of defence are left completely intact. The day after tho departure of tho Allied fleets the Ore at Sweaborg waa sompletcly extinguished, and prepara- tions are making for rebuilding tbe twenty houses that wore destroyed. Captains of vonsels navigating the Ciilf of Finland mas7 easily natisfy themselvua aa to the continued existence of Swoaborg." The Military Gazette, of Vienna, ader quoting ths words of tbe Involute RUISI, auscrting the unimpaired condition of the works, batteries and guns, at Swea- borg, says We learn from an imperial source tbat the powder magazine wasblewn up, and tho neighboring buildings dcttrojed br lire, bat the works constructed to guard the entrance of tho haven are in (tie completes! state of defence." Exaggeration of the Allied Accounts. From the London Timet, Attg 29. We must say that ttie actual results are an im- mense deduction from the boasted victory. Just con- sider how the matter really stood at tho olose of the bombardment between us and the Russians. We had not silenced their batteries, but we had silenced our own. We were not only for the present, but for the wbolo season, for anything that now appears. Tho two Immense fleets were helpless, except to keep the Russians in harbor. We had left our sting in the wound. It IB a source eailveraal says) eur correspondent, that there was nut a reserve of spare mortars sent out, not so much to replace the spoilt ones as they became injured, and so continue the bom- bardment longer, but because we might have followed thin blow with another as severe In another quarter." Why, tho big ships mtghi have carried any number of mortars, currlagss aiid all, us ballast in fact, ono ehip is now taking out mortars enough for the whole flotil- la. In 48 hoars a perfectly new mortar might have been substituted for tvery spoilt one, and Ibe gunboats might have nresented ves an the heralds of their own victory at Revel or Riga, orev, n Cronstadt, before the enemy tiad time to adapt bin defences to the very Important fact established at Sweaborg. had evidently made a miscalculation there, and was not prepared for the means at our command; be has probably made tho same miscalculation olae- whcre, and is equally unprepared, if we are only pre- pared to repeat the blow. This, unfortunately, we ore not. So we are forced to leave him time to improve the occasion, and oux victory ol Sweahorg is only leenon in self defence which we give Russia, at no grout cost to tier, bnt at immrnse com to ourselves. Our people, Indeed, are attempting to calculate the damage we havo done in pounds sterling. But If this is to be the single achievement of the season in the Baltic, we fear the balance is sadly against us, for the llcrts in ati at sea have not cost the Allies a fanning under ten iiiilions apiece and the utmost damage we CBHI boast   considerable excite- ment in the vicinity or tbe cattle-pound, formed of empty beef casks, which, after containing the dead pro- visions of the Division, serve to enclose the live slock. Nobody seemed to cave a distinct idea ef what the Russian spy waa like, bat he waa laid to be mounted, and some bold Hibernian warriors were feard to de- clare they saw him "doubling" In tbe distance, which, con siding Ihe darkness, waa rather a daring assertion.
