Messrs. Editors: Why do you not stir up
the people who sell commodities, with * long
pole, and make them advertise t They sorely
are not alive to their own interests, or they
would advertise freely and without stint. How
it may be with other readers of your paper, I
know not: I read all of the new advertisements
first as items of news, and, I may add, as lit
erary compositions; for I think advertisements
may be read with interest and profit. Apart
from learning where goods may bo had on the
best terms, I read every new advertisement
every day in our papers as well as the Balti
more Suti, and am much interested with them.
I can tell those who do not advertise that they
know not how many persons make purchases
from persons who advertise, simply from read
ing amongst the articles advertised that which
they want; and they go there in preference to
going to places to look after what they know
can be found at places advertised. Stir up
" Commentator," too, so that ho may Btir up the
political cauldron. His articles were interest
ing, and I would like to have more of them.

A Model Secretary!?" Observer," a cor
respondent in this city of the Boston Bee, thus
Among the popular members of the present
popular cabinet, permit me briefly to allude to
Mr. Corwin. The course of this gentleman is
truly admirablo. In the temporary absence of
the President, and the distinguished Secretary
of State, Mr. Corwin fills his important post
with consummate ability. His great aim evi
dently is, to do justice. To the truth of this the
thousands of applicants for appointments, com
ing under his parview, must ever bear witness.
He has been heard to say that his greatest anx
iety, just now, arises from his extreme desire
to render 11 equal and exact justice to all," in
the matter of public office.
A little scone that recently occurred in Mr.
Corwin's private room is worthy of record?
Enter a Clerk, who occupies a subordinate
Mr. Corwin.?" Well, my friend, what do you
want ?"
Clerk.?44 Sir! I want a better room, less
work, and more pay."
Mr. Corwin.?" Do you ? That speech sounds
well. Suppose you repeat it over again."
Clerk.?"Sir! 1 want a better room, less
work, and more pay J"
Mr. Corwin.?" That will do, sir. I will con
sider your case."
Clerk retires, and the honorable Secretary
proceeds with the public business.
It is said that the case of the clerk was a
really deserving one, and Mr. Corwin did him?
what he clearly intends to do every one?ample
justice. No upright man, certainly, could ask
"any thing else.
I will speak of other officers and matters here
44 in due course of mail."

Mexican Affair*.
Prospects of a Revolution.?The republic
of Mexico has been a caricature upon the name
from the first day of its existence to the present
day. From one revolution to another it has
fluctuated between the terrors of anarchy and
rigors of despotism. It was hoped that the
late thorough chastisement administered upon
it by 44 los Yankees," would be vastly beneficial
in cooling down the warlike propensities of the
army, and the inflated pride and ridiculous
bombast of the military heroes, in introducing
something of the real elements of a true repub
lican system, and of the improvements and in
stitutions of a truly republican people. But
the subsequent history of ill-starred and be
nighted Mexico is the same old story of a cor
rupt clergy, corrupt politicians, a corrupt army,
a degraded people, and a bankrupt State. We
have the same official corruptions continued as
existed before; and the only change in the
country appears to be such an increase of its
debts, as will only hasten the foreclosure of the
mortgages upon it, and the division of its assets,
that is its territories, among the assignees,
i Our last advices from Mexico confirm this
gloomy picture in all its dismal colorings. It
in generally conceded that President Arista has
proved himself a wise, prudent, and enlightened
executive?it is apparent that his policy and his
system of measures for the improvement of the
country and the development of its resources
would benefit the people, and, if properly fol
lowed up, would soon relieve the treasury of
its embarrassments. But instead of receiving
"aid and comfort," Arista, it appears, is re
duced to the revolutionary necessity of a body
guard of dragoons to protect himself from as
sassination. The demand of Mr. Doyle?the
peremptory demand of Mr. Doyle?for some
thing towards the payment of that enormous
debt due to England, has not mended matters
in the least degree. On the contrary, the last
conduota of silver due from the interior, on this 1
outstanding account, had not arrived. Every 1
thing, in short, in the oountry, indicated a rapid 1
Jownhill tendency to revolution, dissolution,
ind the extinction of Mexican independence. ^
The intrigues of the Santa Anna party for a
oronuncuimenlo in his behalf, and for his return ^
upon sueh a call, to the dictatorship, in which (
intrigues the British agents in the country are (
probably implicated, are, no doubt, at the bot
tom of all those difficulties. At all events, the ,
prospects of a revolution are very fair; and
the return of Santa Anna, we have every rea
son to believe, will be the first result of a rup
ture with Arista.
At such a crisis, it is important that Mr.
Letcher should be at his post; and we are,
therefore, gratified to hear that he has left, en
route for the Mexican capital. Who knows but
l that the foreign creditors of Mexico may re
\ quire the interposition of the Monroe doctrine
1 of foreign non-intervention in the domestic
I affairs of our neighbors.

The Bryantown Female Academy.
On Thursday last the annual Exhibition of
the distribution of Premiums was attended by
an unusually large and respectable number of
ladies and gentlemen, showing an incroased in
terest in this meritorious institution.
The young ladies acquitted themselves in a
manner gratifying to all who had the good for
tune to be present. It was cause of much satis
faction to the parents and guardians of the
pupils, to witness the high state of improve
ment they had attained sinoe the last Exhibi
Great credit iB due to the talented and ac
complished ladies who preside over the school,
for their zeal and perseverance in conducting
it to its present prosperous condition. Amidst
difficulties which might have deterred otherB,
the Misses Martin and Downey have succeeded
in raising up an institution which bids fair to
rival, if not entirely supersede, those of much
older date. Here, in a cheap and healthy coun
try, away from the allurements and vices of a
city, at one-third the expense, all the requisite
branohes of education to enlighten and adorn
the female character are taught; and expe
rience has shown the good effects produced.
During the distribution of the premiums, all
of which were gracefully received by the young
ladies entitled, the scene was enlivened by de
lightful pieces of music?duets, overtures, &c?
showing that in this charming accomplishment
the teachers and puplis had been eminently suc
At the conclusion of the exhibition, an ad
dress to the young ladies was delivered by the
Rev. Mr. Stonestreet, the President of the
Georgetown College, who, with the Rev. Fathers
Courtney, Vetromille and Lascaster, had assisted
in the ceremonies of the day. The address of
Father Stonestreet was chaste and appropriate,
eloquent and impressive; and had not the sanc
tity of the spot forbidden a response, it would
have been met by universal acclamation.
The visiters then retired to tbe hospitable
mansion of tbe ladies who preside over the
tcbool, where were to be seen beautiful speci
nens of tapestry, drawing, needle-work in gen
eral, &c., &c., a practical evidence that the
roung ladies have not much idle time on hand.
I large number of the visiters partook of the
Lmply provided refreshments. In one room at
he name table, it was gratifying to witness an
exemplification of true Christian charity. At
the head of the table sat the venerable and
much-loved Rev. Father Courtney, one of the
most efficient patrons of the institution; around
him clergymen of his own religious denomina
tion and clergymen of the Protestant denomi
nation, and other gentlemen of different reli
gions, invited by the venerable Father himself.
This was a spectacle which all true Christians
would admire, but which the bigotted of any
denomination cannot appreciate. A similar
meeting together of different denominations,
for the instruction and examination of youth,
took place too weeks sincc at Charlotte Hall
Academy, when the Rev. Mr. Courtney and
other reverend gentlemen united in the exami
nation of the students of that Academy, and
dined together as Christian brothers. Such in
terchanges of kind feeling for such praiseworthy
objects is truly commendable.
