The Union of yestoiday devotes a chap
ter to the distention of this interesting uuiuse
ment. It attributes the recent loss of Whig
members of Congress in Connecticut aud
Virginia, to the loo free indulgence, by the
Administration, in the game of playing t
bowls, or in plainer terms, to what is falsely
called the prescriptive policy of the Admin
istration. It says, that they who play at
bowls must expect rubbers?a truism that
no one will deny ; but we deny that the ad
ministration has been or is engaged in any
?uch sport, is or has been prescriptive in the
least degree, and therefore, the rubbers,
which the Whigs have received in the elec
tions just passed, are not the result of any
such cause. If it be true, a-> the Union
contends, that these results are the conse
quence of what it terms the prosciiptive pol
icy of the Administration, how did it hap
pen, that the operation of the same cause did
not produce a similar result at the New
York city election ? If the policy of ihe
administration was prescriptive when the
Connecticut election took place, it was equal
ly io when the New York city election was
bctd. The position of our neighbor is un
Indeed, ao far from attributing our defeat
in Connecticut and Virginia to the prescrip
tive policy of the Administration, to the
bowls which the Union says it has been
playing, we are dinposed to regard it rather
as the fruit of a natural impatience among the
Whigs, lest the appointment policy of;
the new government would not be stringent
enough, would not be healthful enough in
its opyations. They appear to have forgot
ten, that the Administration of Executive
justice requires deliberation and the exercise
of temperate judement. What was and is
self-evident to our friends, in a given and
particular casp, they seem to hBve forgotten,
could not he so plain to the appointing power,
before whom every case must come to be de
cided. We know, that the Whigs of Con
necticut and Virginia entered upon the re
cent contest with a slow pace and uncertain
feelings, taking counsel erroneously but hon
estly, no doubt, of their eager desire to see
the government purged of its notorious cor
luptions and abuses. The enormity of these
corruptions and abuses, was so great in the
eyes of our friends, that th?4y could not
brook the necessary delay in removing them,
and in a moment of despair, they suffered
their confidence in the old chief, whose word
his never yet been known to fail, to be has
tily impaired, and the records prove that they
permitted the elections to go by default.
The rubbers which the Whig party have re
ceived are not the result of the Administra
tion's having played at bowls,?they are the
fruit of a too prevalent misapprehension
among our friends, that the Administration
war not sufficiently alive to the necessity of
purifying the official corps, of restoring the
ptrtonnt! of the government to its original
purity. There had not been time sufficient
for the Administration to demonstrate its up
right purpose, to redeem the promises made
in the Inaugural, in respect to the officers of
government; and the care and caution and
prudence and wisdom displayed bv General
Taylor, in the execution of the appointing
power, were so different fiom the policy of
the expelled dynasty in this particular, that
even Whigs seem to have lost their long tried
But no future, occasion for misnpprehen
tion of the policy of the Administration, in
any respect, can possibly arise. Our Whig
friends in Connecticut and Virginia will not
be slow in repenting of their error in de
clining to be patient in well-doing a little
while longer. They will come to sec, that!
they have done unintentional injustice to|
the old Hero and his Administration, bv
permitting themselves to distrust, for a single
moment, his determination to carry out any
of the purposes expressed in his Inaugural.
Before the people will be called on in the
States, yet to elect delegates to the next
Congress, to exercise fhe right cf suffrage,
the country will have realized to the fullest
citent, the long-expected consummation on
the part of the Whigs, of seeing the Gov
ernment confided throughout its whole ex
tent, to the administration of houest, capa
ble, and faithful officers, in whom the Ex
ecutive can repose confidence. The Whig,
party will then be able to play at bowls with |
their opponents, and will cheerfully receive
*11 the rubbers which the latter can send.
Lonsvuu, April 28ih, 1849.
* * At Cincinnati snd hern, and Indeed every
where thai I hear from, the people are pleased with
the ceufke the Administration Is pursuing in regard
so the officers of Government, who have been In of
8ce for some time. The people expect and desire to
see Gen. Taylor All all the offices of the Government
with men of his own selocilon. The wkinlngt of
the editor of the Union are not only treated with
merited contempt by lh? friend* of the President,
but are sbaoluiely dl*gnstlng to the honest and re
spectable portion of hie own party. Indeed, I hear

course of the Union and Its contributors.
The outcry of that party, at present, against what ,
It call- "proscription," Is hypocritical and
;m>?hypocrliical, because it knows well that this,
nor any oiher administration, be It whig or locofoco,]
just entering upon a new career of duty, could get j
along as it ought without nicking changes. Let u. j

certainly noi. Well, then, If thl. be so. how can the
Union expect the present administration to keep
those about ihem, who ore not only known to
be politically opposed to it, but in whom the heads
of departments probably cannot safely repose full con
fidence respecting official business.
Let us suppose a case, which is not ai all linprobabh.
A head of a Department rel.ilns a clerk who was tho
confident of his predecessor! and, from Ihe very na
,ure of his duties, is compelled to place many matter.
in Iris keeping, directly at variance with the princi
ple Views, a,id intete.ls ol those who have been
driven from power. Is it natural, i. it to ta?????*
that pool human nature Is so strong as to be entirely
tree from political or party bias, a. no:
even against conscience, ami a proper regard l o the

or pany friends, may not leak out 1 Or. again, what
confidence can a Secretary have In the Integrity of
those messengers, who now stand at their-door, to
admit visitors on business, or apphcants for office
whom they have long known us Wing opposed to
them in polities 'I ,
I will venture to say, sir, that few gentlemen, who
have private business with thi heads of Departments,
or even with heads of Bureaus, would like to enter
upon it in either case, while such clerks or messen
gers happened to be within hearing, or even In an
adjoining room, unless the door connecting the two
apartments were closed.
I have, before now, heard of prying clerk, leave
their (leaks to hear who the person was that hud busi

come into his room while the visitor was talking to
him on some pretended cause or other; nay, even leave
the door, separating the Secretary's apartment irom
Ills aiar, hi order tof t??at what wu. going on. W bile
heads ot Departments and business arc subject to a
system of esplsnag. like this, la It safe-is it prudent j
for Ihem to have political enemies In charge of their
most confidential p apers; or if even thoseheads them-1
.elves had no fears about u breach of confidante, w II
the members of tho Whig party, who are in dally
confidential correspondence with them on subjects
of a private and delicate nature, feel the more com
fortable, when they think that such correspondence
finds its Way Into the hands of enemies? I wot not.
Common decency, and proper respect for the leel.
Inge of gentlemen who aro opposed to such charge,
in their Departments, ought to prompt those clark.
to resign, whose political views are known not to
square with those under whom they serve, le. even
a suspicion of their fidelity might arise, though like
Ctcsar's wife, thev might be ftec even from such sus
picion, and be highly honorable men.
We know well that this fun which the Union I.
making about the removal of a few men from office,
i, also time ?fting I for, true to its Instincts of party,
instead of pity for those who may or have been al

for the purpose of making a clamor, and creating po
litical effect for party purposes. We know the I mon

Indian DrpmUlloua.
Indian*, supposed ubout 100, made a foray in ilie
vicinity of Santa Rltn district, say twelve miles
from lids place, where they Mow and drove off u
large number of horse* and mules. As far as heard
from we learn of the murder of two women, and the
carrying olT of a number of children. Tlioy have
been committing depredations with impunity on the
rnnchos throughout this line. Many Mexicans have
j lost llieir entire properly. The lives that have been
lost by the neglect to provide lor the protection of
this line cannot be atoned for, but the property can,
and should be paid for. To see the poor Mexican
bereft of his family, his properly destroyed or stolen,
lleelng to us for protection, and we not have it to
Sire him, is heart-sickening.
On the 12th instant, Indians, 53 In number, sup
posed to be Tonkoways or I.ipans, came to Runcno
Rosarco, about 40 miles from this place, and killed
a Mexican and his wife; another Mexican escaped
wilh an arrow Bhot In his breast. The Indians then
went to Agua Negra, and killed another Mexican,
and coriiod off Ills wife-und a boy ubout ten years of
sire. The Indians were last seen within 18 miles of
this place, where they stole horses and chased seve
ral men. On the morning of the 14th, Col. Morris,
commanding at Tort Brown, wus called upon by a
highly respectable Mexican citizen, accompanied by
several of our citizens, asking for a force to pursue
these marauders, and to protect their families. This
' officer, with the greatest desire to aflbrd the relief
i requested, did not possess the nquisitc means, he
I had no mounted men for purault, having only in
fantry, and of tltem but u small number.
FuRTHia Accoi'Ntu raOM Tim Ihdiasib.?On
I Saturday last, 14th Inst., quite an excitement was
! created in our town by the arrival of an express from
Palo Alto, about eleven miles distant, line famous
battle-field,) with accounts that thu Mexicans were
arriving there in numbers for security and protection
against bands of muraudlng Indians, who are prowl
ing about the Mexican ranchos, robbing, murdering,
: and burning, immediately on the arrival of this in
telligence, a parly of our fellow citizens, well-mount
ed, started in search of these marauders. About
eight miles from here the party met with three Mexi
cans coming in for protection, having been robbed of
all they possessed. They brought In a shield and
other articles, which convinced its that these Indiana
were Camanches. Our party remained at Palo Alto
during the night of 14th, it raining heavily. Early
next morning they set out, and found about 12 milea
distant from Palo Alto, a Mexican camp that had been
robbed. After examining the premisea our potty
look the Indian trail and followed it some twelve
miles further, when they met another party of Mexi
cans and Americana also In pursuit. Four miles
farther on, our parly met a Mexican who had cscop
ed from the Indians, having been their prisoner?he
had been sorely whipped, and barely escaped with
life. He staled that the party of Indiana that had
taken him had ihirly-odd fresh scalps, and a large
number of horses and mules. Our party here learn
ed that the Indians were so far in advance, with the
advantage of the fresh horses which they had stolen,
that they considered further pursuit would be use
less, ana returned. Colonel Morris, commandant,
on the receipt of the intelligence from Palo Alto, dis
patched fifteen soldiers, under command of I.teul.
Underwood, forthe protection of that place; the day
was extremely stormy, and raining heavily. Never
theless, ihey marched to Palo Alto In quick time,
| and would nnquestlonsbly have done good service,
! hud they been able to meet the Indians.
A Series of Oatr?|ti.
Wo were surprised to learn, that durihg Guilford
Superior Court, last week, the honest and moral
community of Oreensborough was shocked by the
occurrence of several robberies following each other
in quick succcsslon. One of the Jewellery stores of
thut place was broken open, and several articles of
considerable value were stolen. Another depredator
more daring than his contemporary In crime, enter
ed one of the atores in the day-lime, and "removed
the dxpOBiics" in the drawer, amounting to some
thing like 1100, while the pmprietor and clerks were
in the counting-room. A gentleman, also, became
the victim of the dexterity of a pick-pocket, who,
perceiving some bank bills amounting to about $160,
extending from the end of his pocket book, which
protruded a little from the pocket, quietly slipped
them out. leaving the owner In the possession of the
empty book. \N e understand that the parties have
been arrested, supposed to be encaged In all these
depredations, and that they are believed to belong to
a gang of rascals who are travelling from Court to
Court, under the guise of pedlars, traders of tobacco,

By the arrival here, yesterday, of the brig Harriet,
Capt. Collins, from Sisal, the 16th instant, we have
received Mertdu papers to the 12th Inst. They con
tain scarcely an item of news. There had been for
some lime a scarcity of grain in the chief towns of
Y ucatan, but on the 7th and 9th several vessels ar
rived at Sisal laden with Indian corn. Much relief
liad been experienced in consequence. The Indians
were vigorously pressing the Beige of Tihusocti, and
although the official sheet of iVIerida is full of ac
counts of skirmishes between the belligerents in the
vicinity of that city, all of which are said to have re
sulted in favor of iho Yucalecos, it is evident that the
latter are unable (o cope with their adversaries out
side the entrenchments. There Is nothing said of
the projected expedition to Bacalar in these papers:
but preceding accounts represented that the most
extensive preparations had been made by Governor
tiarbachano, to capture that great stronghold of the
Indians.?-V O. Ficayime,'ibthult.
