At a late hour, the other night, the door of s oys'er house in our city was thrust open. and in talked a hero from tpe Sucker State. He was quits six feet high, spare, somewhat stooped, with u hungry, anxious countenance, nnd Ml hands pushed clear down to the bottom of his breeches pockets. His outer covering was hard to define; but after surveying it minutely, we came to the conclusion that bis suit had been made in hi boy heed of a dingy, yellow linscy-wulsey, nnd that, having sprouted up with astonishing rapidity, be had been forced to piece it out with all dolors, in order to keep pace with bis body. In sp to of bis exertional however, he had fuller in arrears about a font of the necessary length, and consequently, smelt that far through bis inexpressibles. His crop 6T heir Was surmounted by the funniest little teal skin rap Imaginable. After taking a position, he indulged in a long starn at the man opening the hib'tlves, and slowly ejaculated "lstern?" "Yes, sir," responded the attentive operator; 'and fine ones they nre, too. "Well, Ive beam toll of inters Kfore," leys be, "but. ibis is tho fu,t time I've seed 'cm, and pre hips I'll know viUmthar made of afo: 1 git out of town " Having expressed this desperate intention, he cautiously approached a plate, and scrutinized ibe uncswted eneU-f&ah with a gravity mid interest which would have done honor to the most illustrious searcher into the hidden mysteries of nature. At leagth bsrbogeji to seliloqoixeon the difficulty of get tine them out, and b w jter they looked when cut.

I've a good mind to give thai tv'.lar lodgins. jeet to realize the effects, as uncle Jess used to say about spebelation." "Well, sir," was the reply, down with two bits, and you can have a dozen."

"Now mind," repented the Sucker, ''a' fair two chickens for a dozen you're witness, mister, ' turning at the same time to the wag; "none of your tricks, for I've beam tell that your city Allan are mity slip'ry coons " The batgein being fairly understood ( our Sucker squared himself for the cutset deliberately pot'off his seal ikln, tttcked up his sleeves, and , fork in hand, awaited the appearance of No. 1 . It came he saw and quickly it wait b died.' A moment' dreadful pause ensued. Tho wag dropped bis knife and fork with a look of mingled amazement and horror something akin to Shakespeare's Ham let on seeing his daddy's ghost, while ho bu6t into the rxclarnntion "Swallowed alive, ns I'm a christian!" Our Sucker hero had openod his month with pleasure a moment before, but now it stood open. Fear a horrid dread of he did'nt know what a ( onscioulness that was'nt right, und ignorance ofthe extent oft he wrong.- -the uncertainly t dui mo ment was terrible. Urged to desperation ho falter ed out "What on airth's the row?" "Die! you swallow it alive! " enquired the wag. "1 swnllcred it jist ns bo gin it to mei" shouted the Sucker. 'You're a deed man!" excUImed bis anxious friend; "ths ereulure ii alive nnd will eat tight through you" idded be in a most hopeless tone "Get a piten pump ami pump it out!" screamed the Sucker, In a frensy, his eyes fairly starting from their sockets. "Oh, gracious! what 11 I dol It's tot hoi I of my innards, already, and I am dead as a chicken'. do sometbin1 for me, do don't Jet t'-e infernal sea-toad eat me ufnre your eyes." "Why don't you put some of this on it" Inquired the wag, pointing to a bottle of strong pepper sauce. The hint was enoughthe Sucker, upon the instant, Mttd the bottle, and desperately wrenching nut the cork, swallowed half the contents at a dranrht. lie fairly squealed from the effects, and MIAMI, nnd blnwnd. and nitched and twisted, as if it were coursing through him with electric effect, while at ibe same time his eyes ran a stream of tears. At length, becoming a little composed, bis waggish advisor appronebnd, almost bursting With suppress ed laughter, and enquired, "How ore you now, old fellow? did you kill iiT" "Well. I did. boss iib-uxh-o-o-o my innards. If that itter critter's dig agonies did'nt stir a ruction in me equal 'to a small oirtbquake, then 'mint no use laylo' it it squirmed like a serpent when that killing stuff touched it; bill" and here, with a countenance made up of suppressed agony and present determination, he paused as if to give force to his words, and slowly and deliberately re marked "If you get twocnicaenstrom me lor wiai live animal I'm d d!" and seizing his seal skin, he vanished. The Bhout of laughter , and the contor tion nf the company at this finale, would have mkmAm n unoetntor believe that they had ill been swallowing oysters alive.1' The Fresidknt elect.

THE PRESIDENTS MFSSACE I.N Hi:LA- TtON TO MEXICO. Thl- document breathes a verv wnrellke snlrit. but will not, in our estimatio , produce a war Even if the views of this mesMge should beadont ed by Congress, which Is otterlv ("nponslble, Mexieo not declare war against ibe United States. Ooi shipping merchants are apprehensive of such war. Having a great property eflort. they verv naturally apprehend, as they do whenever war s threatened, that it would become an object of lepredation. They very naturally suppose that in uch a war, Mexico would grant privateer commis sions to any bodyi nod that thieves of all nations, and especially our own, Including our smugglers into Mexico, would apply for such cornmisHioiis, ind cruise nninst our commerce. Should such war ensue, Mexico woulit coriainiy do Uut. he danger h not quite so form i, hi Lie aa it atineai s at first. Let us sec.

And while i these operations w re proceeding, an auxiliary army often thousand men Could march from Icsn Into Mexico, and subdue all the Northern portion, almost without firing a gwn. Every Mexican port on tho gulf w utd be s sed, before any privateers could be fitteil out in them; and SS the Mexicans have few or no ships In the Pacific, our Dommerce would not be much eaposod from that Quarter. Then we have a snmdri the Pacifu, to which Intelligence, of ihfl war niiU ho soon cOrhniunlcsted from some Mexican port on raeifie, seized by n portion of the Invading army. And while thirty thousand men were ihes subduing the country, the Federal Qovernmen Islng thirty thousand more, who wo Mexican soil in six weeks from tho I C.i'd or; old lio on becinnini enlistments liut the Mexican authorities may grant privateer nommtsstoni In neutral porn. Our ministers on this subject to the governments near where they reside; and these wool I prohibit the equipment of any ptiv.it ers In their ports, such equipment In neutral ports being against ihe laws of n itions. But these aru not our only defences The Mexl cans have no vessels already equipped in any for eign ports, excepting two steam frigates in New York ; and private vessels prepared for war, belong ing to any nation, are not found in any Enrupean ports. Therefore o'l this fifing out must be d me after tho commencement of the War, and would noi be allowed in neutral ports.and would ie prevented by our Cruisers in .Mexican ports. T'nen m this titling o'it, to be done at all, RtUSt be done in oVlinne of international law, our government will treat all such privateers as pirates, and Issue a proclamation to thiseflecvia us declaration of wan.

The Clerks of Courts of the United States may at any time, being at least three years after such regis try on presentation of the certificate thereof, record the declaration of the intention of said alien to become perma nently acitixen of the United Slates, and grant Two years after the record of such declar ation, and live years alter the regis I ry bclore mentioned, on the exhibition of the ccrtifi caies of registry and declaration, and on proof j of good character and attachment to the Con- stitution and Government of the United States, in any Court of the United States, such alien may be admitted lo become a citi- i zen of the United States, on certain conditions ! I the most important of JVhlCn appears to be that he shall have resided at least one year preceding the application in the State or Dis trict In which the Court i held. No duplicates of such certificates of citizenship or registry shall ever be issued, except upon proof in Court and public advertisement of the h ss of tho original. Children under sixteen years of age at the time of arrival in the country are not reouired to produce certificates of re- pistrv or rtorlaration (if intention, if thev arc- proved to have been live years resident ana otherwise entitled. 'IHic must conservative provision of the bill is the next in order, viz: That no decree of naturalization shall be made, or certificate of naturalization granted, within months before the time ofany election of Pres ident or Vice President of the V, States, or of the electors thereof, or within -months of the lime of any general election in the particular State or District In which the ap plication is made; and such decree and Certif icate shall confer no right or privilege of cit izenship whatever, except in the State or Dis trict wherein the same may be granted, for the term of monthi after the date thereof. Decrees and c.ertfiicates discovered to have been obtained by fraud or false pretences, muy, upon hearing in Court after previous notice,be set asidei and all persons concerned in such evas on of the law,;, may be punished as for high misdemeanor. Persons now in the United Stales may, at any time within six months after the passage of this bill, avail themselves of the general provisions ol u to become naturalized with out the previous registry required of aliens hereafter arriving in the United Slate. The provisions of the bill which we have thus abridged, into a law, would, we have no doubt, guard against the mass of the abases which are known to have been perpetrated under the existing laws, and accomplish a salutary and effective reform of our system ot Naturalization.
