GEN. TAYLOR'S POSITION.
On the day after the reception here o! the
news of Gen. Tailor's nomination as the Peo
ple's Candidate for the Presidency, we took oc
casion to allude to the position before the
couutry which he h:.d from the first occupied,
as being the true one, calculated not only to
draw to hif support every Whig but alao many
of the opposite party. We are glad to see
that the view we took of the matter is also the
view taken by all the Whig journals and by
those papers which have heretofore not sided
with either party.
Ve do 'not consider, jars the Baltimore
Clipper, that the nomination of Gen. Taylor by
the Whig National Convention, has altered his
position in the slightest degree, nor that it will
cause the .least change hi the principle? upon
which he has avowed that he will conduct af
faire, should he be elected. He has candidly
stated that he is politically a whig, not an "ul
tra whig" but that as President he will not
be bound by paity tramples, but take the con
stitution as his guide. Having been nomina
ted for the Presidency by the spontaneous ac
tionof the people without distinction of party,
he accepted, and thenceforward considered that
he had no coutrol over the subject, and no
rijjht to withdraw expressing a willingness,
however, that Jus friends might act as they
pleased in respect to the continuance as a can
Üidate. He was put in nomination before the
Whig National Convention with a full knowl
edge of bis sentiments and determination. The
Louisiana delegation referred to his position as
a candidate, ana to the tact that ne did not con
eider himself at liberty to decline but that
his friends in the Convention would of course
be bouud to support the nomination which
might be made, and might throw him out of
consideration if they thought proper.- Under
these circumstances, he became the nomhue o
the convention, and now stands before the
public as the candidate of the people, approved
by the whig convention, and pledged to ad
'minister public affairs, if elected, consistently
with the declarations heretofore made by him
He will take the great Washington as his mod
el, aud devote his time and talents exclusively
'lo the promotion of the general welfare. Un
der his administration we may hope to see the
vindictiveness of party allayed the spoils
system abolished jnd the government restor
ad JO itsoiLinal purity "a c i a :mmatio.ide
voutedly to be wished." He will be suppor

and will be the President of the nation, ifcho

The Delta says the transports chartered by
the Quartermaster have beeu fitted up in the
most complete manner, having an eye to the
comfort oTthe troops particularly. The finest
ships in that port have been taken up, and up-
ou terins. exceedingly reasonable to the tiov
ernineut. The utmost euerer appears to have
been infused into every branch of the Quarter
master's Department, for the purpose ofa spee
dy removal of the army from the unhealthy
climate of era Guz.
Almoste. The New Orleans Delta of the
17th says: ' We referred, a few days ago, to
the probable return of this distinguished Mex
ican, to this city, where he has many old friends
and acquaintances. In a conversation with
Senor Carena, we learn that Almonte waselec
ted a Senator from Morelia, but not being
present at the time appointed for the verifica
tion of Ids credentials, a new election was or
dered and his scat filled by some other person.
The loss of the popularity of Almonte is at
tributable to the great hostility the priests
have always entertained for him, which has
been carried to the exteut that his birth (he
was the sou of the revolutionary priest More
lot) has been proclaimed as a curse of God .and
he the offspring of the devil, begotten in viola
tion of Divine law. Almonte is a true Re
publican. His only sin has been his intimate
relations w ith Santa Auua, which, however,
have grown out of strong personal favors con
ferred by the latter, and have not prevented
his frequent oppositions to the views and
measures of the great Mexican Chief. A long
residence in this country has made Almonte a
great enthusiast and devotee to the Federal
hystem, the religious toleration and other pe
culiarities of our Constitution. His vigorous
support of these reforms in Mexico has attract
ed to him the hostility and prejudice of the
Church and the Army, the two great curses
the vultutes that prey upon the heart and vt-
tals of Mexico. 'His identification with the
principles of the North American Republic,
deprived him of all power and influence, 'and
consigned him to silence and inactivity du
ring this wir. He ccmes now to the United
States to refresh his mind and reanimate his
courage and hopes to once more contemplate
the harmony, the beauty, the glorious energy
of our Republican system. May he on his re
turn succeed in inspiring his countrymen with
an ambition to follow in our footsteps, and
restore the glory and happiness of Mexico
by establishing her institutions on the firm
aud permanent basis of true Rupublican-
ism.
New York. Mat hew Gregory, a lieutenant
in the war of the revolution, and one of the
last of the original members of the Society of
the Cincinnati, expired at his residence in Al
bany, on the 4th mst. He was 91 years of
age. uy order ot the President of the State
Senate, a seat was always reserved for the old
soldier within the bar of the Senate. He was
a true patriot, and a cotemporary of George
Washington. His funeral was attended by an
immense concourse of citizens.
Quicksilver. A letter from Monterey, Cal
iforcia, published in th Philadelphia Ameri
can, sayts:
Uur community lias been thrown into
spasms lately by the discovery of several quick
silver mines. They are said to be ruh bey on I
all dreams that ever shook mining rods before.
You hare only to knock a rock to pieces, kindle
a fire under it, catch thejvapor, and it rolls off
a liquid stream of quicksilver. Lver con
ceivable vessel is now in requisition for col
lecting this precious v a por. Some take the
pots from their kitchen, aud some the warming
pans Irom their beds all catching an t con
densing vapor. Quicksilver will soon be so
plenty here, that we can fix out our pumps for
tn rmometers, our lakes for mirror, and
the dxtors ni l be ready to salivate a conti

It now becomes the pleasing duty of the com
manding General to restore to a grateful coun
try the gallant army .which has bo nobly sus
tained her right and added to her renown.
The homeward march will be at once com
menced, and it is expected that the most per
fect order 'and discipline will be observed.
Ample supplies of all kinds will he furnished
at convenient pouts, and there will be no ex
cuse for the slightest depredations, which w ill

troop in the valley of Mexico and at the sur
rounjting posts, will move to the rear in the
following order on Jalapa, and encamp at some
favorable place in its vicinity, or at Encero,
until suitable transportation can be procured to
transport them to the United States, ,1st. The

First division of regular troops, commanded
by Brevet Major Gen. Worth. Each division
will have assigned to it at least one company
of horse. The dragoons not assigned to divis
ions will receive special orders for their match.
The chiefs of tha several departments, when
not otherwise specially introduced, will ac
coinpanr the headquarters.
III. . The volunteer divisions on the march
will be joined by such troops as may beloug to
them, at the post intermediate between the
city of Mexico and Jalapa, which will leave
suiiicient guards of regular troops at Rio Frio,
Puebla.and Perote, to protect the supplies un
til the reardivision comesup, when these small
garrisons shall march wiih said divion all
detaehed men, including recruits, will in like
manner join their respective regiments on the
march.
IV. . Ample supplies offorage and subsistence
have been placed in depot at Puebla, Perote
and Jalapa; forage at Rio Frio, tents and sho s.
it is expected, will be at Puebla, from which
the troops requiring such article can be sup
plied. V. .A11 ordnance and ordnance stores, as oth
er public property in the city of Mexico, Cha
puftapec, Perote, Vera' Cruz, and elsewhere,

y thortzed to receive the same.
VI. .Such ordnance and ordnance stores,
quartermasters stores and subsistence, not re:
quired for the troops, and which caunot be
transported, or wnicnon oiner accuums n may
be advisable to dispose of, will be sold under
the orders of the chiefs of the ordnance, quar

GOIXG TO HOUSEKEEPING,
BY JACOB JONES.
You're the most provoking mm I . ever
iw in my life. .So, you must be handling
the ?mke beef, and ihe crackers, and the
oast, to Miss Blink, and must smile and sim
jer at everything she said at the table to
night, when you know that it was only yes
terday that she told me that my new silk
dress was rather skimp in the skirt. Let rue
tell you, Mr. Jones, you have a very sheep
iüh look when you are trying to make your
self agreablc.'
Donl dear me.. If a husband slights a
wife in public, what can she expect from
strangers?'
Knowing from past experience that ii
would be impossible to get the advantage ol
Mary .Catharine in argument, I drew off my
boots put on a piirol slippers seated my
self in an arm ebajr drew the lamp to
wards nve, and made a desperate attempt to
be deeply interested in the newspaper of
he preceding day. This seeming indiffer
ence but added fuel o the flime; and the
comparisons which were drawn for my spe
cial benefit, by my affectionate but some
what excitable wire will doubtless suggest
themselves to such of the readers of the Ga
zette as have been fully initiated into ihe
mysteries of the ramied life. But Mtry
Catharine has a heart large, waini, true,
and easily worked upon aud I know how
and when to touch it. My head drooped a
little, and just such a sigh escaped me as
night have emanated from some poor wretch
ho had lost lather- mother brothers
sisters kindred friends aud had been
left hopeless and foieakou, like one of By
ron'n heroes of "dark imaginings.11 I knew
hat my wife' heart was touched and that,
like the rock after it had been smote by Aa
ron's rod, streams of relenting love would
gush forth with connubial liberality.
'Muter June?. Noanswer Jacob, still
n answer 'Dear Jacob.1
I he last was irieststtble. I looked up,
and saw a pairof bright, blue eyes,'glitenug

ried.can readily imaging what ensued.
Ah, Jacob, 1 know 1 was wrmtg to talk

'I am glad you mentioned the subject, my
deir,1 1 leplied, 'for I have been think.
ing seriously lo-day, of going to house
keeping.' Like all boarders, visions of elegantly fur
nished houses, well slocked larders, sleep
inviting couches, and delectable cooks, had
time and ogam danced wildly in the imngi
nation of my wile; but the bare idea that
these dreams conjured up by the delirium
of boarding-house mania were likely tn be
realized, and m ty be sooner than 8 e expect
ed, set Mary Catharine half wild. She
sprung towards me, and before I had time to
make the slightest preparation, a pair of
warm lips pressed mine with a vigor and
suddenness that seut my ppeciacles fly
ing.
Don1! deny it, Jacob. I knew you had
something mi your mind, the moment
you came home. Do tell me all aboui
l lliai's a dear, kind, good, old hus
band.1 B it I have nothing lo tell you.1
Haven't you beeu looking at a house V
I have.'
Haven1! you been pricing furniture?1
I have.
I knew it I kuew it! Put me in a houe
f my own, Jacob, and I would be the hap
piesl Creature aud the best wife in lite
world, I would let you smoke in the pir
lor have as much company as you liked
sleep in bed in the morning, just as long as
you wanted and never would ask you to
itjet up in the middle of the night to see if
ihe stove wanted more coal. Do let us live
in Chesnut stree'.1
'Chcsnut street?1 I interrogatively echoed,
with a look of horror. 'Don't you know
Mrs. Jones, thai my income is exactly $12,
00 a year and don't you know that if 1
took a house in Chesnut street, ihree
fourths of that income would be consumed
for rent?1

Impossible.'

'No.'

You needn't say another word Jacob. 1

You are mistaken, my dear. I have my
eye on one of the nicest genteelest, sweetest

Just tell me where it is?'
Before I autwer your question, my love,

iVo."
Unfortunately, I am of an excitable tem
perament. 1 jumped tu my feel 'acciden
tally trod on the tail of my poor wife a pel
dog and not only kicked the poor wretch
for setting up a piercing howl, 'but ihe kick
was accompanied by an expletive, which I
am reminded of to this very day. The rorn
was. paced hurriedly, and by savage threats
indsiern resolves disjointed and but hall
expressed, it is true I endeavored to force
my wife into submission. It is almost un
necessary lo add, that the attempt ended, as
II previous attempts had ended, in a com
plete and lamentable failure. First came a
white handkerchief then tears then lobs
and then a brief, broken, but still gra
phic sketch of her sufferings and my villa
ntes.
I never know now (sob) what it is to
have (sob) a Inppy moment (sob.)
You treat nie (sob) worse than a brute
(sob.) If my father knew (sob) how
you swore (sob) at ine
I I I swear, Dir?. Jones; i never
swore 1n my life. I only said something to
Ihe dog.1
You can't impose-t-(sob) upon me any

rest sob. You used to stay at Home

I was amazed horror struck appalled
at this charge, and in a low meek voice re
plied Mrs. Jones, you know you ougnt lo
know that I havo not been oat of this
house a single night for two months except
last evening, wheu I was compelled to go
to the office to make up our balance sheet.
What was that playbill sob doing in
your hat last night sob if you were ai

The truth u ished across my mind in a
twinkling. . I had purchased a bunch of ci-
gars on my way home the preceding even

one of the small bills which had been issued
from the Walnut street Theatre that morn-
On my wife's dressing bureau, crum
bled and ragged, reposed the evidence of
my seeming 'guilt. Great . Attraction!1
'Public opiuion .challenged and required!
First night ot the humane footpad! Mr.
Tearem in two pieces!'
Many a ntan has been imprisoned for life,
or suspended by the neck, on circumstantial
evidence less clear and conclusive. What
was to be done? Asserting my innocence
was out of ihe question, with that play bill
staring me in the face. Like a Christian
and philosopher, -I emplored forgiveness,
promised arneudment, aud seasoned the
proffered proposals of peace wiih a promised
indemnity in the shape ofa silk dress. which'

'Do you think, Ja ja-cob,' halt-sobbed half
sighed my wife, that a maroon colored silk
with gaiters and gloves to match, would be
becoming lo me?1
Becoming? Why a maroon colored silk
would give a warmth to your complexion
i h it would make you appear to others
what you always appear to me my dear re
ally beautiful!1
Ah, Jacob, you are always flattering me.
Besides, you know, we can't afford it.'
Cau't afford ii. Didn't you tell mo you
overheard Miss Blink say that you had ihe
poorest dresses of any lady in the house?1
As I expected, this tearing open of a re
cently healed wound had the effect of effac
ing all remembrance of the sceue which we
had pasaed through, and directing the re
mains of my wife's wiatli towards Ihe person
and peculiarities ofMi.'s Blink. As 1 fully
endorsed her sentiments respecting that in
teresting young lady, aud abused her with
all the reckless devotion of a fond faithful,
and truly sympathising husband, I was at
once restored to the confidence, affection and
love of Mrs. Jones, and the 'indemnity' free
ly accepted.
That night, after we retired to
rest, the
subject of housekeeping was resumed with

hours usually devoted to repose, the request
was not compiteu wiwi.
' With i ha morning came reflection, and
with reflection certain unpleasant doubts
and misgivings. A comfortable, genteel
looking house in such a neighborhood as my
wife desired, could not be obtained under
five hundred dollars per annum, which de
ducted from the sum total of my income,
wonld leave a balance of seven hundred a
year, out of which the table was to be sup
plied, wages paid, ihe fires kept up, light
provided, lo say nothing of the other et cet
eras which enter so largely into tire "inci
dentals' of both country and city hie. These
doubts were communicated to my wife; but
she regarded the result of my cypherings,
not as a demonstration of Euclid, but as
downright inventions, manufactured for the
purpose of "defeating the darling wish of tier
heart, the end aud aim of a life thus far
souted and saturated with boarding-house
sufferings.

Jones, I ever knevinmy life. You don't

I see how it is. You want to kill me.
I'll disappoint you Mr. Jones. Not another
week will I stay in Philadelphia. 1 shall go
home and stay home, until you have spiii:
enough to support rne as a wife should be
supported. - Not g to housekeeping, indeed
after what you promised.'
.Will you listen to me one moment, Mrs.
JotiesT 1 haven't changed my mind. I was

Thai' just your way. The moment
want lo go any where, or buy anything, then
you must commence ciphering, cipheiing, as
if tint would !o any good. Ever since we
were married, you have made, me keep art

money back, after it was speut? Just an

My dear,' I replied, 'my only object äs

I am perfectly astonished Mc. Jones, that
a man at your lime of life, for you know Ja
cob you are a gtey as a rat, should think of
writing a love tale.' .
I said nothing, what could I say? but qui
etly took my hat and cane and sallied forth,
in search ofa house! I was successsful;
aud shall merely add that I have rented a
nouse wmcu nas givem complete sausiacuon

that the solitary apple-tree, leafless, and al
