Lawyer JMqlesworth jwas a rich
landlord in Gratnifiv. He! had two
daughters, to whom his plesant house
owed ; its chief attraction: Agnes
was a beautiful wtfman; Jessy was a
pretty girl. The fond father intend
ed "that Jessy should miirry a poor
relation, one Charles Woodford.
Charles had been brought up by his
uncle s kindness, and had recently
returned into the family from a great
office in London. Charles was to bo
the immediate partner and eventual

the orphan nephew. ! Acnes, who1
secretly entertained an allection for
Charles, was destined b-lher father

But in affairs of; love, as in all oth

Mr. Molesworth, who- Jessy having
arrived at the age of eigbteen,nd
Charles at that of two and twenty,
offered his pretty daughter, and the
lucrative partnership to his penniless
relation, and was petrified with as

the connection very respectfully and
firmly' declined. The ybuns; man
was very much distressed and

Mr. Molesworth, advancing suddenly
towards them; "for he has been un

not reveal to the public some token
of the affection of Louis Napoleon
for the French people! and a proof of
his reverence for French liberty! A
few days since we. heard .from the
lips of one of our fellow citizens, a
very rich testimonial of the rare vir
tues of this great patriot. The cir
cumstance was briefly as follows:
Mr.- i, a respectable and well
known citizen of, this j city, a little
more than a mouth, ago- was walking
the streets of Paris in company with
a French gentleman.' . jThe subject
of conversation turned upon politics.
Our Ciucinnatian remarked to his
friend, that he had' just learned Louis
Napoleon contemplated moving from
the Elysee to the Tuilleries. . !
'Well,' replied the Frenchman, "I
"do not know whether the report is i
true or not, but if conformed, 1 1 can
not help thinking the palace of the
French Kings is rather ; too big a
cage for so small a bird j' !
The two friends ;luuglied at the
joke and thought no further of the
matter. What was their" surprise
next morning, to find themselves vis

- Expenses of the Government. I.
'. Onn of the chief causes of com
plaint against the administration of
Mr. Van Buren,. was its alledged ex
travagance. The representations by
the whig :. leaders of the profligate
manner in which he was squandering
the public revenue,, aroused a perfect
storm of indignation against him
throughout all jthe confines , of the
republic, and swept him from power.
The whigs promised to reduce the
expenses of the Government to its
"earlier and better ' days." " Twenty
millions of dollars was fixjd as the
standard above which they would not
go. Kow, a comparison of the ex
penditures while Van Buren was .m
power with the expenses attending
the management of the Governmeut
at the present time, will afford an in
teresting commentary on whig prom
ises, and present j in the strongest
possible light the corruptions and
profligacy of that party.
The expenses under Mr. Van. Bu
ren were as follows?
1837 - -183S
- - j
1839 - - ' .
1810 - - !
These are the figures by which the
ingenuity of whig journalists .and
whig stumpers, created a perfect pan
ic all over the country. It will be
borne in mind, that : during this
whole timb, the Government was bur
thened wiith the heavy cost of the
Seminole vvar. But now let us look,
at the Govermental expenses, since
the accession of whigs to power, and
see to what an enormous extent they
have been swelled. I ! .
The expenses foil the year ending
kind expressions of regard that pass
so current among whig
eaders, as for
instance the friendly jJndications of
mutual esteem that
been displayed by Met'
and Brooks. It is "further seen in
the dissensions, and biijttcr. antago
nism that have characterized every
popular assembly of thi whig party
since the agitation of jthe" presiden
tial aucstioa commenced, i And it is
further seen in the
presses of the party,
union is indeed of the
torv character. In fact the attach
ment of the two sections ofj the whig
party for each other, is very much
like that, of two membejrs of the , fe
line' race, fastened togejther by their
caudal appendages aud suspended
across a clothes line.
