Louis Pbillippe, you know, ratified
The Treaty, and pledged thus his word ;
J knew thai kit handt were well tied,
But the Deputies' consent I inferred.
In this I was greatly mistaken,
For those chaps, seeing Rives made such brags,
Their faith in our claims was so shaken,
They refused to open their bags!
Louis Phillippe's a poor sort of king,
Blair says if Vd had his place,
I'd a' devilish soon settled the thing,
By buying the whole Deputy race!
I was wrong, I will own, when I drew
The bill for eight millions, at nght.
The money, to be sure, was then due,
But, the Deputies having the right
To haul the king over the coals.
And refuse to give him the cash;
(A pretty d?d mean set of souls!)
I own that my conduct was rash
In drawing before I had heard
The Treaty had had their revision;
But why dou't the king keep his word ?
I do like a man of decision !
When the Deputies rejected the Treaty,
He sent, to be sure, straight a ship
To say u non obxtant" the defeat, he
Would let no opportunity slip,
But would at 'em again before long,
That he'd get me the cash without fail,
When bis u party" got rather mare strong,
And for it his 44 word" gave us M bail."
1 own that he could do no more,
'Twas all I'd a right to expect;
But to me it prov'd a great bore
For my plans on the Bauk were all check'd.
I sold, like a fool that I was.
The Bill to my arch-enemy?Nick,
Who claims the law gives it him?poz,
Ten per cent damages slick!
Another mistake that 1 made,
Was sending old Livingston out,
A peevish, tho' clever, old blade,
Annoy'd by dyspepsia and gout.
The fact is, I gave him the birth,
'Cause he spoke French and was poor,
1 had no other reason on earth,
Yes, one, and the best I am sure?
I found him a bit in my way,
For he's too old to learn any new tricks;
But, as its turn'il out, I may say,
He'd best staid at borne to split sticks !
For, instead of stirring abroad,
And letting me have all the news,
He was most of the time, by the laird,
Kept still in the house by the blues!
So, thus by his letters misled,
1 imagin'd the king a dissembler,
And came out, piping hot, as you've read,
In my message to you in December.
I did not intend to oftend
Either France, or its Citizen King,
But merely then said, u* a friend,
That the only way left tbein to bring
The account to a close, was, to lay
\jut nanus uu r icutu vc^cis we iikti
"Twm no menuee"?but, I'll candidly say,
I don't wonder they got in a pet!
As soon as the king thought he had
A majority, to vote us the cash,
_ He, like au honest, strait-forward lad,
(If he'd push'd 'em before, be'd been raah,)
Aak'd them again for 44 the dust,"
But, just ere they call'd o'er the roll,
A fellow (ne deserves to be curst,
For I'm sure lie's a mean, dirty seul,)
Jumps up, and an u amendment" tacks on,
That, " to heal the pride of the nation,
Ere the money was paid, Monsieur Jackson
Should give, of his speech, explanation."
The only Minister present,
For fear ot losing the bill.
Was obliged, though not at all pleasant,
To swallow the d?d fellow's pill!
And, of course, again haulk'd the king,
In his hoot st intentions to pay,
For he cannot, like me, the poor thing !
Have every thing all his own way.
Livingston, tbo' they gave hirn a hint
To take up his bed and off walk,
When my Message got out all in print,
Like a fool, stay'd to have some more talk.
He spun out a dev'lish long yarn,
(The material to be sure'* good enough,)
DUl lots r rcmruiticij, 1101 wiiiiu^ iti mm
From oor who ha J treated them rough,
Refused to answer bis letter,
And, 'tween you and F, they were right,
For when order'd awav, he'd done better,
To hare ta'eti himself quick out o' sight.
When he found the king would'nt hold
Intercourse with him again,
And, being by all his friends told
'Twaa useless any more to remain.
He at length pack'd up his traps,
And, cursing the French, left gay Paris;
I'll no more send abroad such old chaps.
For tay measures they alwayseiobarras.
He left there his fine son-in-law,
As Caarift J' Affaire* in liia sljad,
A braver chap I never saw.
And very polite and well bred.
To show you our "honor's" secured
In this able gentleman's hands,
I need only mention, l'tu sure,
How high v a marksman he stands !
And, an proof how lie hates their d?d " Court*"
How " republican" h,* habits all are.
He refus'd to join ilie Kind's sports,
And to dauce with his daughter?tbo' lair!
Besides?when Louis came near
Being kiTTd hv that cursed machine.
He?the only one, sirs, so I hear?
Was not at the Tuillieries 9cene.
I've trdd liim to ask for the " Rhino,"
And, if he don't get it, to start;
That he imil mot succeed that I know
Aa well as I do my own heart.
For I know the King i? hut waiting
The election of Mr. Van Bnren,
To "pay up" withoot more debating,
Which tome is past all enduring,
For. iho' I acknowledge most freely,
Tbet Livingston?and I a " small hit,"?
Have not treated Louis genteelv
In our attempts to get you " the frit."
| Vet till, 'twould be shame and a sin.
That 1 out of office should, go,
Before that the inuoey come in;
I'd die my good friends of the blow!
You know that I'm now getting old,
And disappointments illy can bear;
Why, my temper's so cross, that I acold
Even, sometimes, my bosoin friend Blair!

But, his strength was so great, I got beat,
And thus fail'd to make him a wreck.

Back Kitchen, Dec. 7,1835.
ILr <V? paper will be issued from this office to-morrow
morning. If important news should be received,
(and we expect something highly interesting,) an
EXTRA HERALD trill be published between 10 and
11 o'clock forenoon.
The Packet a)tip George Washington, from Liverpool
to the 25th November, arrived last evening, bringing
three days later from London. When our paper
went to press, there was also another vessel below, supposed
to be the Havre packet of the 1st Dec., which
was to bring Mr. Barton home.
By this we have further important information of the
purpose of France, not to pav the Indemnity for the present.
The English press is full of speculations and
rumours, and the Paris letter writers equally so.
What do you think of the news? Will the French
pay ? Shall we have a war ? Is there any pro*poet of
more difficulty ? These are the questions which meet
us at every corner.
It is difficult to give a correct opinion upon the intentions
of the French government. Yet there is one chaunel
of approximating to the truth, which exists, not in
this country, but in France. The French press is entirely
under the turvUlnnce of the Censorship. Nothing
is published contrary tothe positive wishes of the government.
What the French press is permitted therefore
to say, may be considered not very contrary to the
wishes of the government. Now we are told that a
fleet is preparing to be sent into the American seas?thot
Mr. Pageot is ordered home?and that no money will
be paid until after another presidential election in this
These statements may therefore be considered as expressing
the sentiments, or nearly so, of the government,
and on these facts, it may be asked if France felt her
dignitv insulted by a few words in a Message, how
ought the United States to feel at these insolent demonstrations
about to be made on her very waters ?
What is New Yore coming to??The money and
property of some of our merchants here, have not been
burned up entirely. We understand that $70,000 have
I been offered to the senior Mr. Campbell for the hare
ground, since the fire, of his lot, 25 feel on Pearl street,
125 feet deep to Water street.
Mr. Clat proposes to divide the proceeds of the
public lands during the next three years. This will
give New York $2,!M>4,553? Pennsylvania $2,093^238?
Virginia $1,581,000?Ohio $1,446,000. Tha other
states wont pass it.
Juvenile Thieves.? The ruioa are daily crowded
bv bovs and girls with bags, who have already robbed
to a great extent. The receivers of these stolen goods
should be discovered and arrested without delay. Tie*
citizens in the upper wards, where these vagrant bag
men resort to sell their plunder, can easily discover
them. The arrest and punishment of 20 or 30 of these
boys will lead to sn extensive discovery of sec re let I
plunder. Let five or six extra police men receive temporary
appointment, and immediately proceed to the
mrest of these thieves. Upwards of two hundred
thieves were in ihe ruins all day yesterday.
IHTThe Anti-Slavery Society have just published
a powerful Protest against the Abolition portion of the
President's Message. It is signed by Arthur Tappan
and nine others, ami dated Dec. 26, 1835. We 'shall
show it up hereafit r.
O* Texas is nearly independent. They are sending
commissioners to this country to raise a loan. Where
will they get the money ?
iThk CardBus' New Year's Audkus.?Beginning |
on our outsidC will be found, as we stated yesterday,
a very ingenious metrical version of the President's
Message, which appears, by the most authentic account,
to hare been done into verse by some of the
cooks at Washington?undoubtedly a French cook?
one, at least, in feeling. The Carriers of the Herald,
catching a little of the spirit of the Herald, some time
since determined to get up something for New Year's
Day out of the regular jog-irot order. One of the eldest
having had a fourth cousin at Washington, who
hulls from the ground floor or the White Palace, means
were adopted, through his influence, of procuring the
Message which appears in this day's Herald. The
story he tells about buying it, our readers may believe
or not, as they please.
We have no doubt the public will prefer this mode of
a New Year's Address to the dull, tiresome, stupid, ridiculous
metrical addresses that are usually put forth
on this day.
Gadsby's Hotel, Washington City, Dec. 23,1835.
Carriers or the Hkkai.d.?" N man is a Hero to
his valet de cbambre."?I have just come acioss another
proof of the truth of that old saying, aud hasten
to send it to you.
I was passing the rear way of the " White House"
this morning just as they were loading the scavengers
cart with the ofliil, Jcc. Alc. from the " Kitchen," and
observing that the driver appeared to be eagerly engaged
turning over a dirty manuscript, I bad the curiosity
to approach to see what it was that interested him
so much. After some preliminary remarks (for you
must know that even a scavenger bov attached to the
' White House" must he addressed with proper respect
and caution,) such as " tine weather this morning mv
lad"?how is yonr friend Mr. Vun Buren ?"?"you'll
have lots of work now that the General is going to liegin
feeding the folks again," dtc. See., 1 asked him what it
was he was looking, at. "Why su" savs be "I can't
exactly tell" As they tossed in a bucket full of stuffjuat
now from the Kitchen, I spied a sort of written book
moons ir, and an I in fond of reidin, for I went to Sunday
school Inst winter, I pulled it out, and found it was
something of a sort of" Message," written in a rhyming
kind of way?which, to tell you the truth, I'm hardly
up to yet?and then he handed it to me:?finding that
it was indeed a " Message" and in verse, I asked the
boy very politely, if he would let me have it, if I gave
him 25 cents for it?to which he readily consented, saying,
u (would be no use to him, as he couldn't read any
thing that was'nt printed plain like' the Globe,' " which,
added he, M I read every day regular,for its 'sent toine,
and hII the liovs in the Kitchen, gratia for nothin.' "
1 have looked over it, nfter clearing it of the dirt, and
as much of (he grease as I well could, and am induced
to send you a copy, as far as I have time at p'esent to
discipher it, that you may see how even " the General's"
scullions iu the kitchen make fun of him. I rather
think it must have been written by one of the Fianch
cooks, as itsmelU confoundedly of soup meagre.

Post:?We are all rejoiced to find tbot tha little Mohawk
has, at length, succeeded in getting himself a
"Squaw," as rich in heads and wampum as she is in

are entertained of hiin, for the girls all say he was so
great a "party man" when he was siugle, what will he
be now ?
Between you and I, it is said that the little Magician

Doctor Sleigh, in the usual farm?" For the Sun?Mr.

to publish a pamphlet under a Christian signature,
against the recent testimonies to the personal character
of their victim. This is merely a rase de guerre to dii
vert the public attention from an investigation of their
history, principles and objects. It will not, however,
serve their purpose.
Coal ard Cold Weather?Yesterday was a fine,
clear, cold day. We ordered a supply of Coal from
Walton & Southart's Coal Yard, comer of Washingion
aad Warren street. It came?it looked bright aad
cleat as the weather. "Try it, boy ?" He did so, and
we now affirm positively that we never had in a grate a
better, purer, or more elegant coal thau this self-same
from Walton & Southart's Coal Yard. Tliey are completely
restored to our good graces and good opinions,
and we advise all the readers of the Herald to go to
Washington and Warren streets for their coal Don't
forget to say, " I come on the recommendation of the
Herald." That will be a sure passport to the best ahd
most reasonable fuel. If k should not, just let us
know?that's all.

Goods at the Police Orricm.?Since the fire, it is
calculated that an amount of merchandize equal to
$140,000, has been deposited in the Police Office. Of
this amount, $125,000 have been returned to their respective
owners?about $15,000 are still in the back
I room of the office. Among the many articles now uncalled
for, are the following:?lioe and coarse broad
t cloths and cssaimeres, vestings of all kinds and qualities,
tine Welsh and coarse Yankee flannels, shawls of
all sizes, colours and qualities, silks and satins of various
shades and textures, shirtings and sheetings, and
last, but not least in this cokl weather, hosiery and
gloves in abundance; also, several pipes of brandy.

Literary Consolidation.?The American Monthly
Magazine has been united with the Naw England, and
is now published simultaneously at Boston and thi?
city. The first number of the new aeries we received
vesterday from the press of Dearborn, 38 Gold street.
It bears on its face a great improvement on the old
Magazines. This number is ornamented with a spirited
engmved sketch of a scene in Hamlet. The articles
are interesting and varied.

Washington, Dec. 28,1835.
The Christmas holidays are over aud those of New
Year's approaching. The fashionable world is quite
delighted with the President's Christinas party, and
look forward, with pleasing anticipation, to the New
Year's rout. A little set of exclusive* is now formed,
under the immediate patronage of the President, who
lias set hiinseif to the grand object of separating the
true and acknowledged fashion and rank of the community
from all contact with those who are not exactly
of the right sort. The social institution* of Washington
have too long, in his estimation, borne a resemblance
to the political institutions of the country and admitted
to such society, as the city affords respectable per
sons from every quarter of the country, without a eery
rigid scrutiny into their pretensions, as people of fash
ion. The system is now to be changed, and we are to
meet at every ball and soiree in the city, the same unvarying
set of dowdy matrons, frumpy old maids, and
gawky girls, who belang to the set, who are now, for
the first litne, to be recognized as extremely fashionable.
The scale established by the President is peculiarly
arbitrary?for instance, clerks with three thousand
dollars salary, are invited, and those of two thousand
salury are excluded. Perhaps the idea is that a
person worth only two thousand salary, cannot afford
to attend a party, aud in this, the President is right
On Friday, the public New Year's levee is to be
beld, and to that the Irish laborers, fiee negroes, dec.
are to lie admitted, in their shirt sleeves, as heretofore ;
and it is probable there will be some beside tbem to pay
their respects to his Majesty?those whose names are
not on the invited list for the eve-nine not heinr verv
likely to go, uninvited, in the morning.
The long pending reference of the Michigan question
is decided, and the boundary question and tlte applies
tion of Michigan for admission were both referred to
the Committee on the Judiciary. The Presides! it was
asserted has assured the people of Ohio that he will
veto any bill for the admission of Michigan into the
Union, until the Boundary question is settled. There
is an uncommon thirst for speaking already manifest in
the House. Every new member has come with a dozes
or two of set speeches which he is determined to let
Police.?Thursday, December 31st.?Jim Allen
alias Jim Jones, a powerful black, sans hat, coat or
shoes, was brought up, being charged with having
stolen from Mr. John Jones, chief mate of tho schr.
Oriole, two watches with the appurtenances, and twenty-five
dollars in hills and silver. Mr. M'Grath who
undertook his capture, traced him to No. 150 Leoaard
street, where he was found, nearly in his birth-day rait,
in company with some half dozen dingy votaries at the
shrine of Venus. Mr. M'Grath ascended three flight of
stairs, and Mr. Allen alias Jones, not liking his would
be companion, jumped through the window, smaehing
sash and glass, and alighted in safety on the shed in
the rear of Dr. Marshall's office, thence through Dr.
Marshall's office, (who thought that Satan had come
loo soon) into the street, and was captured after a hard
chase at the corner of Elm and White street. A young
sailor who accompanied Mr. M'Grath, not wishing to be
outdone by a Atgirur, dashed through the broken window
after him, and followed close al his heels. Jones
alias Allen, stoutly denied for a long time the theft,'but
at last confessed, and went in company with aa officer
to show where he had deposited it. That being secured
he was conducted to comfortable quarters, until his
honor lite Recorder, shall relieve Captain Swain of his
David Ohadwick, steward of brig Hays, was
arrested this morning, bv .Messrs. A. M. C. Smith and
Welch, at the house of one Schults, already we'l
known to the inhabitants of this t itv. by his connection
with the paramour of the infatuated Jackson. He was
accused of having stolen from the cabili of the vessel,
on Wednesday evening, a trunk and contents to the
value of one hundred dollars and upwards. In addition
to the elothing, there were $f>0 in bills of the state
bank of South Carolina. Chadwick was not very cunning,
for on the evening of the theft, he changed his
clothes in the cshin, leaving his own in their stead.?
The mate, Mr. Hume, left the vessel at half past 5 in
the evening, and at 7, when he returned, the cabin was
open, and the article* above mentioned were missing,
suspicion fell at once upon Chadwick, as it was known
that he had a key of the cabin. This morning he came
down 10 top vessel wnna reiersnmn com on ononein^
to Captain Bertram!, and as soon as he was told the
trunk had been stolen, he was off instanfer. Amoa
Pink us swore that on the evening of the 29th bo sow
Chadwirk with the coat on, and he tben stated that he
had just redeemed it from pledge. None of the articles
have as vet been found, except the coat. Chadwiok
was committed for further examination.
As F.picvre.?Amos Contine, a black, was brought
up by Mr. Welch, for stealing from C?sar Rodney, of
Harlaein, several articles of w earing apparel, a fowling
fiiere, and a turkev and goose. Arfios, probably not
laving the wherewithal to procure a New Year's dinner,

thus left him to provide another. The gun doubtless
was intended to procure more game, should the tnrkey
