In desiring king* Shield*, ol Illinois, to take charge of the Cental Land < itfioe Mr Polk has uiade a selection from ke wide ctrclo of his friends, that will do himself nor, and give tbe highest satisfaction to the gallant 4d (democratic West?the moat flourishing and iwerful portion of the Union. The new CoinmwaKHier has already made a very ivorahle impression upon all who are connected with I 4* e?tensive Bureau. And bow could it be otherwise with an honest and accomplished Democrat, of |kre principles, the finest social qualities, and the >4st patriotic leelings > When he entered upon hit df tee, he did not wait lo encase himself in a coal of or to asaume swelling airs of official iinporifiice, before he could deign to give audience lo I use who are placed under his direction ; hut i ilhout the least formality, and with the uluioat i or iter in modo he peaaed from room to room, on the -cond day, and became acquainted with all the Irrks without discrimination. He sometimes entered I room unattended, and familiarly introduced himself l a the "new Commissioner"?remarking that be was flrairoua to learn, as earlv us Dossiblc. the particular auiiert of ?very branch ot the DU<intwrf/ He ban been heard to say that, a* the brad of the Bureau, he regarded every one aaaociated with him aa hia equal in iotnl of inaril, although subordinate in poaition. Thia V 'he generous spirit, and three the manly arDtnnenU f a polished gentleman and thoroughbred Repubftcac. in the Land Office, at all events, I am warranted in saying that a substantial and long-desired reform iiaa commenced at its head. Purify the fountain, and the stream* flowing froiu it will he pure. Judge Shields will scarcely be in office three years, surrounded by seventy or eighty clerks, without knowtag one-third when he sees them in the Department tf meets them in the street. He will hardly cloister Kai'elfin sullen and anti-social seclusion from those With whom he must necessarily mingle in daily official intercourse, and thereby cast a blight upon all tbe generous and kindly feelings which should be Cultivated by gentlemen habitually thrown togeiher, gud regularly engaged in similar duties under the (iojfernment. And still less, I am sure, when the protier time srrives for him to give place to a successor, ftvill he turn his back ungracefully upon the establishment and all his associates in office, and march off ''solitary and alone," "unwept, unhonored, and unhung?" Such a mode of retiring from public station would not he in unison with the frank, dignified bud magnanimous hearing of the new Commissioner; it could only remind us, in a small way, of the meraotalde exit of a certain great man from power, wh, se *'mign of terror" bad almost established a gloomy tldipotism over the land, and whose odious principles Wbuld have been revived, in their bitterest concentration, umler the iron rule of the Pederal Dictator. [judge Shields, however, drank early and freely of tie living waters of Democracy. He is really one of Ilature's noblemen ; acknowledging no auperior, and looking upon every gentleman as his equal in social piinciples arid |ierHonal claims, fleisno^uan nur ripvcmu-ijiiui 4/rmwi au i iic sictim^ pmicipies of the immortal Jefferson hare "grown with his growth and sirei gtlieoed with hisalrength." lie has always stood forth in the "lowering front" of battle? one of the most fearless, able and uncom|>rouiising champions of Western rights.

COMMUNICATED. THE PEOPLE'S GOOD. On* of the advantage* of a fearless press is seen in the l'act that not long since the Madisonian culled public attention to a violation of the law in the attempted apportionment of the Judiciary Square, so a? to secure the first step towards bringing V street through that public, reservation, and honor the neighborhood of the Wesleyan (Methodist) Chapel, by a more d rect communication with the somewhat iiolcd'"English hill," and thus sulmeive the view* of speculators desirous of bringingeihausted clay hanks into market. Since the appearance of lhal article, notwithstanding the Surveyor of the city directed the contractor for laying the footway from the norih line ol K street to the south line of G street, to turn the curb atones for a street through the square, an inspection of the ground will shew a coincidence on the part of the Mayor with the Commissioner of Public Buildings, thai there w no street thus designated in ;he plan of the city. But why, it is again asked,should sn acre of ground lass than wan given in charge finally to the Medical E? 1? l >s*K r.rw...,l .- or oihV WAS not llial i?ve rrtclfH ?o aa to run from ihe centre of ihe terunation of I ?treet, near fnh, to the centre of the winnenceno nl oi thai street ngnm o" ft'1 " 1 A 'feience lo the hill* of eipenno for altering the old nl, among the public arehirer, allows ihat fT>0 wore aid lor ? gildid in*cri|i(ion upon tho pediment, mm I'mnrative of the Preaidency under which the boildig w?? re-eonatriieled, anil one fourth of the monev hi* expended would have placed ihe fence where Ike ita of V9th Aogu?t, 1812, required it to be placed, 'he aequel ahowa that there waa originally a nettled p?ign to tinlnir Ihf /otr, and a memorial from the proer quarter lo Coogre?* will elicit, through tile power i aend for "jiereon* and paper*," the fact.

The lata Praaideal granted the it## of the northweal irnra- of the Judiciary square for the temporary ocipancy of a public echool, and ihe Council' nave empowered tbe Mayor to contract for it* erection either of brick or of tram*. Brick haa bean aalecitd, it ia behoved, and it la thought thai the inodllicatioii of the meaeure. aa lu lucatluu, haa been acceded lo by the preaeul Chief Magialrale. But why la the location to tie changed from tlx nuilkwMt colour to the youlkwrtf corner ol a ubdlvuion ol the tame Mjuaie'l ia the teucr lor the boya1 " play giound" lu peu tile central point designated lu the law aatbe pru|?r place lor the fence ol the Oily Hospital'! iuicroacbinenl la again attempted, ao tta ultimately lo aucceed in the unguis! design of gelling a street through the squat c ' A pretty " play ground," truly, "uuong a number of cart louds of brick rubbish' If Uic President were consulted, ba would doubtless agree to let tbe school bouse ba erected about equidistant between tbe hoes of K and Is street, ou btb street, and aa the (Joveriiiuent pays lor the pavement, be suraly should be cooaulled. Hut who t? to pay for tbe pavement on tbe aoulbern portion of tbe square?tbe faculty, surely, wbooe students will be benefited in their ut re conveineul accta* to thai valuable institution, tbe Medical College in the eastern wing of lllr Hospital The wilier thinks that the l'reaidellt will early determine to Tehran the northwest corner of tbe Judiciary square fur a substantial granite jail, sucb as (Jen. Jackson contemplated, and the small stream, which (living to be covered with a culvert, is doubtless tile cause of desiring a new location lor the school, is the very beat reason why thai particular point sbuUld be chosen, lor one of the iu>>?l obvious reasons of cleanliness, in conneiioii with the cloae proximity to the Court House. The new jail Could then tie converted to a "house of refuge," and when the substantial walls of giaiule shall frown at all evil-doers, and the architecture shall bear a suitable inscription, good citizens will not to be at a loss to remember who was " Jisri K. Polk." If, Messrs. Kditore, you wonder why I impute tbe desiie of changing the location of what was deemed a temporary public school, because of the expense of building a brick culvert to cover the little stream which runs diagonally through the northwest corner of ihe square, I answer, that the ways of the corporation are judged of by ordinary observation. I.it any one, tiding along New York avenue.as lie crosses the line ol? 13lh street, cast bis eye towards what is railed, in the appropriation bill, " Fountain square," and he sees in front of the frame house* eierled by the industry uf the President's Gardener, on 13th street, a most unsightly and dangerous dileh ; and while municipal influence has frustrated the just expectations of the Uoaid of Health, in causing the removal of nuisances, by properly grading thai square and completing the adjacent streets, and laying a culvert, ihe humtile gaideuer's properly is to be taxed 10 percent fur a pavinieui, which is likely lo be washed down by the tlooda, and his tenants, hard working people like himself, cannot get a load of wood into their donstcils ! liniueiiioiial usage, and Ihe law itself will give any resolute free-holder redress in a question of damages?and if such protracted delays at tilling in only ewe-Aaf/ of a street, and laying a culvert, arise from a want of funds, or a desue to re-lay water pipes, the forthcoming taxes should be debarred by timely process.

About two-thuds ofall the iron trade in the United Hi ate* is smelted frotn the ore. in Pennsylvania.?Hurruburg Jtrgus. None Conduct.?A correspondent of the Courier and Enquirer relates the following incident connected with the disaster to the Swallow : " Joseph Keed, one of the ferrymen between Hudson and Athens, was rowing in his yawl at the time the Swallow struck the rook. As soon as he appreciated the nature of the disaster, he used all his efforts to reach the place, and succeeded in saving the lives of five persons who were floating about on boards arid fragments of the wreck. Hy several of thein be was offered a reward for his intrepidity, which he refused, and said?' Although I am a poor man, I did not exert myself to save your lives for the sake of money.' Joseph Keed, humble as he is, belongs to the Grace Ltarlmg school of philanthropists." Love for the Dead.?The love that survives the tomb is one of the noblest attributes of the soul. If it has its woes.it has likewise its delight*; and when the overwhelming burst of grief is calmed into the gentle tear of recollection, then the sudden anguish and convulsive agony over the present ruins of all that we most loved, is softened nway into pensive meditations on all that was in the day of its loveliness. Who would root such a sorrow from the heart' though it may sometimes throw a passing cloud over the bright hour of gaiety, or spread adeeiter sadness over the hour of gloom, yet who would exchange it ever for the song of pleasure, or the burst of revelry? No, there is a voice from the tomb sweeter than song; there i? a remembrance of ihe dead to which we turn even from the charm of the living. Eclipse of the Sun.?A correspondent of the Boston Daily Advertiser gives the tollowing iiilormalion : "On the morning of Tuesday, the (ilh of May, the sun, throughout Newfoundland, Lower Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, New England, New York, New Jersey, and in the eastern part of Pennsylvania, will rise partially eclipsed by the moon. A partial eclipse will also be seeu in trie greater t.art of Europe and Asia ; but the eclipse will be central only within the artic circle. At no city in America will the beginning of the eclipse be visible, and greatest ubscu ration only ill Newfoundland, Prince Edward's, Cape Breton, and part of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In Boston,the eclipse will end about 28 minutes after sunrise ; in New York about 11 minutes, and in Philadelphia about G ; but at Washington and all places west and south thereof, the eclipse will end before the sun is above the horizon." Attainments in KNOwi.Enor.?Dr. Olinthus Gregory says: "With a few exceptions, (so few indeed that they need scarcely be taken into a practical estimate ) any person may learn any thing up on which he sets his heart. To ensure success, he has simply so to discipline his mind as to check its vagrancies, to cure of its constant pionenesa to be doing two or more things at a time, and to compel it to direct its combined energies, simultaneously, to a single object, and thus to Jo one thing at once. This 1 consider as one of the most difficult, but one ot the most useful lessons that a young man can learn." Hints to Mechanics.?Dr. Alcolt gives the following hiniH to mechanics, which we think have a general application, as well to (hose of the professions, as to those of the trades .?If you would avoid the diseases vour peculiar trades are liable to produce, attend to (he following hints : Keep, if possible, regular hours.?

By chewing, smoking or snuffing, you spend your money which would help to clothe you, or would enable you, if single, to make a tuneful present to an aged mother or tlopendent sister, if married, to buy your wife a dress, or get books for your children. You also, by any of these filthy practices, injure your heabh, bringing on headache, gnawing at the stomach, low spirits, trembling of the limbs, and at times sleeplessness.
