Johnson's life of Greene.— The life ofthat dis tinguished officer, general Nathaniel Greene, from the pen of Judge Johnson, is expected to issue in a short time, from the press. To judge from the sources whence the author's information is derived Considerable diversity of opinion appears In prevail among the editors in New York, as to thi motives which influenced the miscreants who burn ed the house of general Van Rensalear in Bethle hem. Some attribute it to political excitement— caused by the general's appointment as post-master This, we think, is the most illiberal construction which can be put upon the act, and altogether void of foundation i for an attack took place upon the identical house on the 1st of January, eight days previous to the appointment.—There is, no doubt, a gang of villains in that neighborhood who depre cate upon society ; the reward of gl,250 will lead, we should imagine, to a discovery.

As much opposed as we are, to frequent altera tions of the Constitution, we think the one propos ed would be of essential advantage. The incon venience which attends frequent elections must have been experienced in every state in the Union. The influence it gives the national executive must be obvious j that it is made use of, we do not pre tend to say ; it may however, prove a serious evil j and the sooner checked by the constitution, the sooner a dangerous species of corruption will be removed. The New Constitution of New York prevents any member of tire legislature from ac cepting any office from the governor or senate, dur ring the term for which he shall have been elect ed. The following paragraph from the editor of the the Balti more Patriot, may be ( with charitableness) considered ts a pretty broad hint to the good people of that place ; if Mr Munroe could, by a maiden speech, convince his colleagues that two dollars were preferable to four, it would be of advantage to elect him to the assembly. *■ The legislature of Massachusetts, ( says he), of the unwieldy number of three hundred members, with a per diem oi g 2 per day, has adjourned, says a Boston paper, ' after a laborious session aï forty days.' If this is termed laborious, what may we call tile recent session of the legis lature of Maryland, of only ninety-five members, at g 4 pr. day, which holdout-for- eighty-eight days ? If the good peo ple Of Baltimore, or of any other part Of the state, will only honor ns with a seat in that august body, our maiden speech ( which will he brief, as ' brevity is the soul of wit,' and delivered on the fret day of the session,) shall run thus : ' Mr speaker ! I rise to make a motion 1 It is this—I move that the members of this house shall receive but two dollars per day for their services ; and that we devote as much time to the business of the people as we naturally do to our own ; in which case a session of thirty days is as good as thirty months. Let this he adopted, and the com mittee of ways and means will not much longer have to re port a ' permanent deficiency in the public revenue." We think the editor of the Patriot would find it a very laborious business to carry his project into ex ecution. A resolution has passed thesenate St been read once in the house, to adjourn on the first Monday in April next. From a statement given in the Na tional Intelligencer of March 6th, it would appear impossible that they could conscientiously adjourn at that time. Mr. Randolph, in the course of debate on the motion for adjournment he introduced on the second of March, told the house that the merchant, agriculturist and lawyer could not afford to remain there during a long session for the pay they received." We would almost wish that our representatives received no emoluments excepting their expences : we should then discover those who were real patriots ; and there would be no fear that " congress would be made up of the refuse and offal of all professions." Honor and patriotism would induce many capable men to aspire to the dignity of representatives; their pay is an induce ment to many pettifogging politicians to wriggle and talk themselves into the station ; and when once there, they get the fleece, and the d—1 may take their constituents- It is high time for the people to cease paying for long talks; and to elect men who are capable of doing justice to themselves and their country. What can the people of the U- States think of such sentiments as those which felt from Mr. Edwards of N. C. " Fix a time to adjourn ; and then and not until then, shall we attend to bu siness." The following extract from the paper ' 'above refered to, will shew what business is before of of 35 lot at are | j ,. There are now on the list of orders of the day—that to ait( j there is of propositions yet before committees, or yet to be originated, at least an equal number. To adjourn in a month, the house must finally dispose of six or eight of these subjects (some of them of great importance) in one presentatives, since the commencement of the present n session, yesterday inclusive, is twelve hundred and fifty ! ~ u P on the wllole »»umher there has, to this day, we be in- be ?, n 1,0 desUion m favor of one u( tlle P e ' "tioneis.
