Mr. Polk and a Second Term.-Not long since
some of the paper., speculated as to the proba.
ble candidacy of President Polk, for a second
term. The Washington Unioa has put this
matter at test. That paper says:
"The President has already declared
more than once, that he himself 'Wilt not
be a candidate for a second term of office.
He has authorised us to declare it aanin in
the.prospectus which we have subtmitted
'to the nation as the creed of our own faith
and the guide of our own course. ie goes
in for one term only, to serve his country
to the best of his ability, and anxious to
testify his gratitude to the people who
have honored him by their confidence by
devoting himself to their service and not
to his coutiouang in office. lie does not,
therefore, design to shape his Administra
tion to assist any aspirant, or to make his
appointments to promote his own re elec
tion, but to carry out faithfully the powers
which the people have placed in his hands.

The British Government, it seems, is
directing its attention and its action to the

Whig states that Mr. Tucker, the Admi

on. a tour of rapid military inspection. He
visited Kingston, and left immediately for
Toronto and Niagara The Whig adds
to this annonncement the following :
It is said that lie will pass rapidly
along both shores of Lakes Erie and On

convenient speed. While all present .idea
of laying down the keels of the iror, steam
