Unless aomc onimagraable device is resorted to bj <"ir op pooeots, or so me inconceivable stupor weighs down a portion of the Whigs?the election ol a Whig Governor is sure. But our excellent and moat desorvmg^candidnto for Lieutenant -Governor is in danger of defeat and the fact should call forth the utmost exertions of every true Whist. Hamm.ion Fish has ever been a devoted champion ol the Whig cause, and has never desired any thing at the hands of its support? ers. He was once made to take the Whig nomina tion for Congress in a Loco Koco District, and he carried it. He has now been constrained, after re peatedly declining it, to accept the Whig nomina tiou for Lieutenant Governor Tho oflice ho docs not want, and never did ; but it touches the honor of tho Whig patty that he should receive from us an cnthuaiastic and effective support. A* a New Yorker born and bred, docply identified with our City and all her cherished interests, the son ol a he. loved and venerated Knickerbocker who was among the most loved aid trusted officers ol Wash ington's Life Guard, it behoves the Young Men ol New York to give him an earnest of their esteem rind confidence. The New Constitution renders the poat of Lieut. Governor loss laborious (by abolish ing the Senatorial Court of Errors) and at the ?nme tiiue inoro responsible than hitherto Through Hamilton Fish, if elected, our City will have an immediate voice in the direction of our Public Works, Public Education, Ac.

Mr. Polk and his Cabinet Ministers hear the denunciations of tho PEOrLE, and they tremble thereat. They see and feel that the people are beginning to know them and to understand their tricks and humbugs. The fraud w regard to the Tariff; the humbug in rela? tion to the Sab Treasury, wherein the Government assailed the Ranks and depreciated their paper, and , then sued and implored the Banks for a loan of a few millions: the corruption of the intrigue with ' Santa Anna, the object of the War. its enormous : expense, and tho favoritism extended to pets and partisans in the matter of Government contracts? all these will have to be sifted ami examined into by Congress at its next session. The voice of the People, as recently expressed, will rive heart to the Congressmen and impel them to do their duty in this matter work. By a more vigorous prosecution of the War. the Administration hopes to ward off the searching ex amination which much overtake it. Hence it is planning for the capture of Tampico by the joint operations of the squadron in thcGult ami the com? mand of Gen. Patterson now at Camargo.

Department goes, there is. I understand, nothing to sustain the imputation which has -. ery generally guno abroad, on the courage of General Butler during the siege of Mouterey. The letters which appeared in the Baltimore sun. and immediately alterward in the Union, confirmed, as they appear? ed to be by the Current rumors in the City, and by the generali} received statement that the Govern? ment was in possession ot the tacts placing the general impression beyond a doubt, certainly re i ceived a sufficient foundation for all that has been j communicated on the subject in the newspapers. Ear and wide the belief that there was some mis conduct on the part of General Butler, and that it led to a censure from General Tay lor. pre? vailed: and whetheror not this be true, and why such censure was given?if true?remains to be seen. It is now said that no dispatches have been received, and a writer iu the I'uion has come out with a oriti'-al review ot the letters iu that paper, ' iu order to prove that Gen B utler showed no lark of courage,?but. on the contrary, that he led his men bravely into the gorge of death. Now. all this may be so, and vet Gen. Botler may have re ceived and merited the rebuke which he is said to ? have received. The whole, as yet. remains involved in mystery, ami I hope it may be cleared away, so as to leave the reputation of Gen. Butler as bright as hi* friends may desire.

That the system of teaching and acquiring the French as a living language, beautifully coneeiv-d and admirably developed by Prof. Fdwasd Ciu-rch. manifests his accurate knowledge of his native tongue, an int.mate acquaintance with the philosophy ot lan? guage, and rare powers of analysis and classification.

Much, however, as we would ? ondemn any altempt to interfere with the regular course of justice, there are extenuating circum stances in this case which should be considered. It wil] be remembered that 'Jtorge was brought before the court or. Thursday morning, and that his case has been post poued trom day to day by request of counsel. On Satur day morning it was generally understood that it would positively come up to day, but most unwisely and unne cessarily a thin! party got out a new writ, under which th" alleged slave w-as taken backward find forward tn m prison to court and court to prison, till some few of the colored ? people very naturally became fearful, trom these conrlicUng proceedings, that something was wrung, and. exasperated at the thought ot the uihh being g;v>-o up as a slave through trickery and Iruud. made an un fortunate attempt tit a rescue.
