We have repeatedly given proof that the
evils of the practire ol re-election to offices of
power and patronnpe, have for years attracted
the attention of distinguished lenders of the
Democratic party. Mr. JrrrRR'on, the father
of the Republican school, always considered
ita introduction into the conwlitution of the Uni
ted Stat o, as an error fraught with bad conse
quences to the due administration of the affairs
of govprnment. In the Reform Convention of
Pennsylvania, tho one term tenure for Governor
waa most ably advocated by Judge Geo. VV.
Woodward and Charles Brown, Eq., two
leading friends of tha present Executive of this
State. In a eubsrqtient Legislature, a propos
ed amendment to the constitution limiting the
Governor to one term, received nearly the un
animon vote of the Democratic portion of that
body. During tha canvas preceding the assem
bling of tho Baltimore Convenlion, one term
resolutions were frequently adopted at Demo
cratic meetings. Tolk, with a proper aense of
the principle, has authorized the publication of
his determination not boa candidate for re-election.
, General Jackson, than whom purer patriot
or a firmer Democrat never breathed the breath
of life, waa a most strenuous supporter of the
one term principle. Deeply convinced ol Ihe
evila likely to result from a continuance of the
practice of re-electing a Chief Magistrate, ho
etronely urged upon Congress, in six of liis
eiiht annual meesairea, the necessity of so
amending the constitution aa to render that of
....... m. .
ncer ineligible alter ono term of service, ins
arguments are a atinging rebuke to the cry
which the office holders, in the very dititHcr-
ttfed hope of holding on to the emoluments of
their places, are sending forth over the Com
tnonwralth, that the agitation of this question
is a factious ss well as an Anti-Democratic
movement. Mis reasoning, it will be seen, is
equally aa applicable to the re-election of a Go
vcrnor ot a Slate aa to the Preaidcnt of the Uni
ted States. With Ihia view, we commend the
following extracts from his messages to the
calm consideration of the Democracy of Penn
sylvania. They arcatrong and to the point; and
should be regarded ss beacon liphts to guide the
party in this Commonwealth through the perils
by which it is menaced.
From Grit . Jwfcuon't First Menage.
'In connexion with such an amendment, it
would seem advisable to limit the service of
magistrate to a single term of cither four or six
There arc perhaps lew men who can for any
length of time ci.j'ty office and power, without
boing more or lea undpr the influence of feel
ings unfavorable to a faithful discharge of their
public duties. Their integrity may be proof
against improper considerations immediately
addressed to themselves , but thry are apt to
acquire a habit of looking with indiflerence upon
the public interest., and of tolerating conduct
from which an unpractised man would revolt.
Office is considered s species of property ; and
government rather as a mean of promoting in
dividual interest, than aa an instrument created
solely for the service of the people. Corruption
in some, and in othera a perversion ot correct
feelings and principles, divert Government from
its legitimate ends, and make it an engine for
the support of the few at the expenso of the
many. The duties of all public officers are, or
at least, admit of being made so plain and sim
ple, that men of intelligence may readily quali
fy themselves for their performance ; and I can
not but believe that more is lost by the long
continuance of men in office, than ia generally
to be gained by their experience. I submit
therefore to your consideration whether the ef
ficiency of the government would not be pro
moted, and official industry and integrity belter
secured, by a general extension of the law which
limits appointments to four years.
In country where officers are created sole
ly for the benefit of the people, no one man has
any more intrinsic right to official station than
another. Offices were not established to give
support to particular men, at the public expense
No individual wrong ia therelore done by remov
al, aince neither appointment to tior continu
a nee in office ia a matter of right. The incum
bent became an officer with a view to public
brnefita; and these require hia removal, they
are not to be sacrificed to private interels. It is
the peopl't lhe7 ,0M WD0 ,0 601,1
plain, when t bad officer ia aubetituted lor a
good one. He who is removed has the same
meana of obtaining that are enjoyed by the
mill ion who never held office. The proposed
limitation wouUi destroy the idea of property,
now ao generally connected with official station;
nd although mdividul distress may be some
times produced, it would, by promoting that
rotation which constitutes a leading principle
in the republican creed, give healthful action
to the system." .

From Gen. J ark ton's Third Message.

The greatest compliment yet paid to Taylor
1 heard of in London. The compliment is this:
When the steamer of May lftth brought to
England the news of Taylor's difficult position,
the Duke of Wellington met Mr. 1 and
the subject waa introduced, 'Why,' raid tho
Duke, 'docs he not do thia and that,' (mention
ing the atepe he thought Taylor might to take.)
When the steamer of June '1st brought the
newsof his victories, Mr. met the Duke
sgain. 'Your Grace,' said he, 'most have been
advising Gen. Taylor, for you see ho has done
exactly what you said he ourrht to do.' So he
has,' said the Duke, aa murh gratified aa if he
had won the victories himr-e'f. As I got this
from Gen. , to whom Mr. related
it, it ia undoubtedly authentic; exact in sub
stance, and, I think, also verbatim.
In Bordeaux I met a whole-souled American

some young man,
father's coiitiug-rnoin, and had determined
to have him for better or worse, although her
father had previously g ven her hand to another
Tho lady's father having heard of thia attach
ment, feigned irnorance, but determined to
break it off, and give hia daughter to the gentle
man he had promised her. For this purpose he
directed tho young man to take passage in one
ol the steamers that left New York and pro
ceed lo England, and transact some business
for him there. The lover accordingly came to
New York, but meantime, the young lady got
some knowledge of her father's intentions, and
acnt a message by telegraph to that effect to
her lover in New York,
The expedient the two lovers resorted to for
accomplishing their desire, and defeating the
father's views, waa novel and extraordinary.
She took her stand in the telegraphic office in
Boston, and he did the same, with a magistrate,
in the office in New York, and with the aid of
tho lightning, they were made bone of one bone
and flesh nf one flesli. This is certainly apply
ing this invention to a purpose never contem
plated by Professor Morse, and exhibits a great
deal of ingenuity.
A few days since, tho lady s father instated

ErrKCT o Ltr in Paris. In Gallignani's
new Paris Guide we find the following state
ment, which may snpply matter for medical as
well aa moral speculation. If the facts be as
here staled, it is important to inquire whether
they bo found similar in other large cities, and
what can be the cause or causes of such a resul.
It haa been remarked that families constant
ly residing in Paris soon become extinct, and
that out of the whole population of the town
there are perhaps not more than 1000 individual
who Can reckon their ancestors as inhabitants of
Paris, from father to eon so far back ss the reign
of Louis Xllt. The effects of this mortality ore
observed to be more active upon males than fe
males. A Parisian youth of the second or third
generation lias almost the form and manners of
a woman! He has seldom any children that
live, and henco it may be inferred llial all fumi
lies, which, whether from listo or necessity,
pass their lives in a town residence or a shop,
are irrevocably doomed to ultimate extinction.
Those that pass the summer in the country last
longer thn the othete, aa may be seen in the
case of aome. ancient noble families that have
not been established in the capital more than &
century. The class of the nobles has, however,
become much weakened since they hove given
up inhabiting their castles and manors; and tho
massive aichitccturo of the hotels of tho Fau
bourg St. Germain no longer corresponds to tho
diminished stature of their inhabitants.'
The excessive heat in Switzerland has cau
