If we may rely upon the extraor dinary reports we daily receive from Wash. Inglon, the contest between the office-nflfcen and the ofliee.r between the trembling int and Mi anxinvt outs is raging with un paralleled firmness and fury. We. doubt whether any previous administration has ev er been so wol'nlly beset by such n Vast nnd importunate hiiittUude of hungry applicants for office; and never did any administration possess so limited nnd ability to satisfy the selfish cravings of lis friends. It Is already rumored that the President's health is being rapidly impaired by the petty Vexations and troubles occasioned him by ravenous Demo cratic patriots solicitous to serVe their coun try for a consideration. Whether he i des lined to follow in the footsteps of a couple of his Illustrious predecessors, Harrison nnd Taylor, nnd be made io give up the ghost ere yet his term of office has fairly conlmenc ed, or whether his naturally vigorous con stitution will enable him ta survive the in cessunl annoyances of his followers, remains to be seen. That his beat and most unself ish friends, however, are tormented with the liveliest apprehensions as to the result, does not admit of doubt. Many of them predict for him a abort career and a troublous one; and nearly all concede that the chances are decidedly against him. Uu is a very old man, and therefore but little adapted to sale ly undergo the trying cares and vexations in cident to his office. And so wo should not be surprised to receive a telegraphic despatch any day announcing his sudden demise. We consider that rat theory in connexion with the cause of his recent illness as out of the question. It is the office seekers who have produced his sickness, and who will soon take his lust breath from him, unless he pos sesses himself of a bountiful supply ol bludg eons, cowhides and guttapercha canes,und vig orously employs lliem in self-defence. As one wholly disinterested, nnd wlio would not see him surrender his valuable life to n hungry pack of politicians and demagogues, we re commend him to nvil himself of the useful implements suggested, nnd thus declure his independence at once. It is the only hope, if he wishes to enjoy the honors and emol uments he has won, and Continue lunger a sojourner in ihis vale of tears. -A correspondent of the New Vork Herald says that at St. Domingo city recent ly n thousand armed men, instigated by Pres ident Baez and the Spanish uharge Segova, attacked the house of Mr. Elliott, an Ainer lean citizen, insulted his wife, tore an Ainer iean flag to pieces, fired into several houses of other Americans, and tried to tear down the coast of arms and flagslufT of the Amer ican consulate. ' This latter was defeated by the inference of the English war steamer Tartar. The same authority says that u treaty has been concluded between the governments of ll.iyti nnd Saint Domingo, one of the conditions of which stipulates that all Americans shall be driven off the island, and none allowed ta settle there, v Railroads The Governor of Lnuisiann, in his message to the Legislature of that State, discourses as follows: The Vickstiurg, Shreveport and Texas Railroad, from the Mississippi to Monroe, (74 miles) to Shreveport. 171 miles, and to the Slate line of Texas, where it meets the Southern Pacific road, 189 miles, is in the hands of energetic contractors, who have the first thirty five miles, completed, nnd are lay ing down the iron superstructure. It is es timated that within four years the Pacific road will.be completed to the Trinity in Texas, and the Louisiana road to the State line, making a dif-tanoe of nearly 400 miles. The Congressional land grant to the roads amounts to 420,924 acres nnd most of it is the finest cotton land in the State. Speaker Banks. The N. Y. Tribune is displeased with Mr. Banks, and attributes to him the defeat of Fremont. That paper says: - We think Mr. Banks might have been Speaker of the next House, or in some oth er official position not less exalted, but for the fatality to the Fremont moveim nl, re suiting In a great measure from the dilatori ness. delav nnd inaction which werb ocea. sioned by his advice.

Mr, Clay "Erred."- In common with sev eral of our American brethren, we are in cllned to give our Senator, Hon. C. C. Clay considerable credit for his acknowledgment that he "erred" in taking the Kansas bill, with ita provisions In favor of ui aluralized aliens. Few men have the soul to acknowl edge errors of the sort, and our Senator will rise by hia frankness, in publie estimation. But how many Administration papers will tell this story of Mr. Clay at the confession. all Not onej for the acknowledgment, frank and manly aa it was, goes deeper than it seems nl first blush, and virtually admits the necessity for an Americrn Parly. We .hall, at some early day, attempt the task ol show inff thai such a necessity results from Mr, Clay's admission. jlonf. Mail. Mileage or Mumbkiis The late Con gress, which paid itself so liberally, made no change in the outrageous mileage swindle. The bills of the members show a great dis crepancy.

The distribution of the public Inndsnmong the several States la demanded by every In terest; by rluht and by justice. The new States and Territories are from year to year absorbing these lands, nod their proceeds go to feed the hungry maws of blunted spee ulntnrfe In Wall street and elsewhere. New States are coming at once In the possession of railroads and other privileges which the older Suites have been struggling for three quarters ol a century, under heavy taxation to acquire. The people will demand to be released from their burdens, and should their demands bo disregarded, the result will be a rapid emigration from the old to the new States, nnd the consequent still gienter em bnrrassment of "the former. We nre pleased to see that tho subject is attracting attention. A 'Writer" fof the Kxnbxville Whig; over the signature of "Rutherford," urges the necessity of Ten nessec claiming her share of the public lands. We extract a portion of his letter: We have millions bf acres of public lands, and could it be better appropriated than to educate the risinir generation? We have enough to give to each Stales a paramount Hind; the interest of which would educile every child in it. This land belongs to the Slates equally. It ia row being very Un equally distributed. Large amounts voted to some States and Territories for Railroads and other purposes; while other Stales are getting not an acre. Tennessee ought now to claim her proportion of these lauds, and our Representatives and Senators oimht to vote lor this distribution. It should be the main question in the coming canvass for Congress, nod he who will not promise to vote for it, the people ought not to Voto for him. This is nn important item to Tennessee. It would give lo r the means of olucating her children to the Inst generation, and of making nil the Railroads sh mnv ever Heed, This thing nu;lil In be utiended to now; for if we wail uutill after a few more sessions of Congress, there will be but little land to be distribut d. We have in the United States, one million filtv thousand four hundred and twenty (1, 050.420) persons over twenty years of age W'hn cannot rend and write. We h-ive in Tennessee 78.619. We have in Rutherford enmity 1,210. Vu have in Knox county 2408. U e have In Tennessee 298,000 chil dren. We huve, in public funds. $114,468, lor Common Schools, and $18,000 for Acad emy! 'I his is the interest on the superflu ous revenue,d!strihuted by the general gov ernnient among' the States, except the Acad emy fund, this we receive from North Curo. linn. This gives to each scholar about 41) cents a year. We need the public lauds. If Virtbeund Intelligence are the main pillars of a Republic, our pillars are rather defected. The statistics of crime show that the guilty arc nearly always of the Ignorant class. The expenses of prosecutiiiL' offenders would nearly educate the population. The distribution of the public lands, nnd applied to educational purposes, will reform srime, strengthen the cords of the Union, and add greatly to the prosperity and happi ness of our country. EriDEMiu. The Oswego Times enys that Ihc extent of the new epidemic known by the name of "brain fever," is truly alarming throughout Madison and Onondaga eouoties: "A gentleman who has lately visited the former county, states that in sonio localities the people are leaving in alarm and di-llmv. Persons nre attacked with the remarkable malady very suddi nly, soon become insane, and die in a few hours. We do not know that any have recovered wTien once attacked by the disease. Dnane Brown and Richard Thomas, Esqs., two prominent lawyers of .iiaciison county, have fallen victims to 11, and we are told in some of the villages deaths occur daily. As yet thers is no rational ex plannlinn of the disease." fSPThe number of Methodist ministers In the regular work in California, Ib said to be sixty-one. The average salary promised them was $1,300, and the nvarage sum re ceived by them about $1,000. Some of the ministers of the Methodist Church, especial ly those in Sacramento, get over $3,000 as their annual allowance. This, of course, the reader will readily understand to be nn effect of the enormous cast of living on the Pacific Const. The average salaries of minis ters in the Atlantic States it is said, does not exceed $450 per annum. The War THey Duel vr North. There was a bloodless duel at Buttermilk Falls, near Troy, 011 Friday, between James Trow bridge, of New York, and Jeremiah Jewell, ol'Alabany.

DEMOCRATIC EXTRAVAGANCE. tFrom Ult Blohmskd Whl.l The extravagance and,; wastefulness of Whig administrations have been the fruitful theme of many a denunciatory Democratic harangue But no Whig administration has ever equalled, or even approached, the present in the mutter of a reckless squandering of the public money. ,. . We have been favored by Mr. M. R. H. Garnelt with a copy of his reconl speech ill the House of Representatives, In which he comments upon the wild expenditures of the general government, "and the frightful rate at which they huve increased," Upon this point he says : "I need not go back to Mr. Van Buren's Presidency, when the whole country was uolivulaid w ith indignation at an expenditure of '25,000,000 to $30,000 000 per annum. Nor wilt return to 1842, when Mr. Clny esi boated that the government could be finny ndii.iiiiatcied for $26,000,000. while Mr. Cal houn put II down to $16 000.000. Nor will I dwell on 1845-46, Hie first yenr of Mr. I'olk'sadioiiiistrution, when the expenditures, exclusive of p ivineiils on account of public debt and Mexican hostilities, ware only 22, 864.296. But, sir, I w ill take a year since the Mexican war since the empire. f the Pacific was added to our dominions, and tcilhin this present adminintralinn, nnd I find that in the fiscal year 1853 '64 the entire expenditures, exclutite of pub ic debt and the installment due to Mexico, were $44,018,249, while this last yenr, 1855-'56, Ihev huve suddenly swell ed up to $67,172,401, iwing $1,243,306 more than Ihey were in the height of the Mexiu .n wnr, when our forces rested on either ocean, and our flag not only protected our own do main, hut waved in tiiumph in every province of .Mexico." m , These are the figures of a Democratic Con giensman from Virginia, and embodied in n speech for general circulation, we suppose, mrrong his Democratic and Whii; constituents. It will be perceived, its .Mr.-Garnelt shows, that the expenditures of the uencral govern ment, under the Pierce administration, In n time of profound pence, "have suddenly swelled up to" nearly tixty millions 0 dollars per annum! lis view of this unprecedented and startling fuel, Mr. Garnelt soys: "How, I demand, has this monstrous result been at tained ! By any just expansion of our func tions! By any fair exercise of our constitu tional powers? No, sir, no!" Well may, not only the lax-paying people, but even leading Democratic politicians them selves, be astonished at the rapid and frightful increase of the public expenditures under a Democratic administration. It is onouuh to excite both the amazement nnd tho fears of men of nil parties and sections. For it shows the existence of prevalent and wide spread extravagance and corruption on the part of the servants of the people.' -We all recollect, as Mr. G.irnett reminds us, how "the whole country was convulsed with indigniition ntnu expenditure of 25,000,000"during the Presl deney of Van Buren. And why, we ask, is there no "indignation'1 now exhibited, when, under another Democratic administration, the expenditures "have suddenly swelled up" to nearly sixty millions) It is because Demo cratic politicians have been artful enough to divert the etcsof the people from an exaini nation into the extent nnd manner in which the public money has been spent, by raising a great, hue and cry upon the slavery ques tion! Such is the kind of artifice to which they invariably resort, when they wish to conceal from public view the blunders, follies, corruptions nnd crimes of the rotten nnd im becile administration of a Democratic Presi. dent. But the time hus now cnnie, when the people are not to bu frightened from their propriety by tho ch.p-trap Involved in purely sectional issues. They desire to know how it is that sixty millions of dollars a year have been spenl by the late administration. They want to know in what manner they them, selves, or the country, have been profited by this vast expenditure. And they mean, more over, to hold thu dominant party to a stiict accountability for their gross and profligate waste of the public funds. Shall I alk Nobody abuses small talk unless he be a stranger to its convenience. Small talk ia tho salt of life; there is no getting on without it. There are times when "'tis folly to be wise," when a little nonsense ia very palatable, nnd when gravity and sedate, uess ought to be kicked down stairs. A philosopher cuts a poor figure in a ballroom unless he leaves his wisdom st home. Meta physics is us instructive in the midst of sgreeu ble prattle us a death's head on a festal board. We have met with men who were too lotty for small talk. They would never condes cend to play with a riband or flirt with a fan. They were ubove such trifling; in other words, they were above making themselves agree able, above pleasing, and above being pleas ed. They were' all wisdom, ail gravity, and all tedinusuessj which they bestowed upon the company with more than Dogberry's gen erosity. A man who cannot talk has no more business in society than a statue. Con a aa Fuel. An Exchange reports that a farmer about 150 miles south of Chi cago got out of coal, and na the roods were in a bud condition, he thought he would try the viitue of corn in the ear to supply the place of coal. Il worked so well that sub sequently he purchased a load of coal and tried it by measure in contrast with the earn, and the experiment developed the fuel that the com fuel was the cheapest and the best, The corn and the uoal were worth the aame price per boshel, 80 cents each, and the corn went the furthest and made the cleanest and best fire. Much aa we would regret to see the "staff of lire" converted into fuel, we think it would be about aa well a to make il Int whiaky. ' " ' ; Forney'i candidate for the Collector- ship of Philadelphia has beea defeated, and Baker. favcrtte of Glaucy Jonea, receive THE OTHER RIDE. ; Having onpied the remarks of one of ths most violent of the Black Republican papers .r the North (the New York Courier nnd Enquirer,) expressing great satisfaction with Mr. Buchanan's Inaugural Address and his course so fur; and intimating that It will probably be found aupporting his Admlnlstrn. lion we now copy from nn extreme South ern Righta Democratic paper, which support ed Mr. Buchanan last year, t'ri reasons for distrust and its statement of the probable contingencies which will lend it to oppose the new Administration. We copy from the New Orleans Deltn or the 17th Inst i "We are charged by the Republican with a prc-dcteruiioed opposition to Mr. Buchanan. We have had no such pre determination, nnd our position now towards the new President grows out ol his own nets nnd words, the complexion or his Cabinet nnd the policy which it foreshadows. Our course in the same regard herealter will be resultant from Ihecotcinpornrv policy of Mr. Buchanan, not pre-meditated; if we'shnll oppose him, our antagonism will not be the cons, qm-nce of our own foregone choice, but will lie ne cuseilaled by tiie counsels of his own choos ing and the deeds of his own doing. We candidly confess, however, that we anticipate n necessity for opposition. When he was nominated we felt assured that he would never make a President whom we could nn qualifiedly upprove as independent journalists and advocates of the best interests of the South above all party or national considera tion. We supported him, n preferable to Fremont, and because we feared the South wi.s not ready for practical resistance in the event of the hitter being elected. He was elected. We have m.l been disappointed W expected nothing to command our posi live admiration; he has given us nothing; our debt is paid, and on the other hand we owe him nothing but justice. This ho shall have without slint. This his placemen and spokesman shall have to the most liberal margin, "We are committed to no opposition to Mr. Buchanan hut what is conditional. The by. potheses upon which we based the probability of a Southern opposition to his Administra tion have thus far he. n abundantly realized. Our diagnosis has always preceded our prog. nosis,and up to this we believe we have erred in neither. Mr. Buchanan's Cabinet is not a healthy one, for the South nt least, and we have hinted aa much, hnve named the bad symptoms, and huve warned against the In fection of the huge m iss of disease collected in the grent national infirmary at Washing ton. It would be much better for us If Gen. Cass were comrorlal.lv provided for in n pri vate hospital; if Mr. Cohb were allowed to fatten on "hog and hominy" in Georgia, and "Jake" Thompson were Bent to the new Choctaw purchase to perfect himself In Indian iifTdrs."

Trains upon trains sre pouring in from every quarter, but particularly from the free States I had once thought, as I used to vrite you, that Kansas would be a slave State, but I am now forced to alter my npiuion from the overwhelming evidences to the contrary that force them selves upon me every day. Our ferryboats are busily engaged from daylight until dark carrying over trains, and the proportion of fi-eesoil to the pioslavery emigrants is as fif teen to one: This is not confined alone to our point of crossing, but it is so at every oilier that I can hear from, and it satisfies ine that the political destiny of Kansas it fixed beyond all question, and that another year will fill all of her prolific, plains with a thrifty population. Wars and rumors of wars the will know no more, but peace will brood over ber beautiful prairies, and prosperity will reign throughout her borders, I am a pro-slavery man, and would prefer to see my favorite institution established there; but 1 am, nevertheless, oonvinoed, that the ener getic, enterprising Yankee will develops the resources nnu build up the Country sooner than we could do, and that by living in bar niony with them as our ueighbors, they will do us no Injury in our peculiar property. Mound City is. Cairo. Mound City, it ia understood, is to overshadow, swallow up, and annihilate the ancient city of Cairo. At least stockholders in thu former hope so, Naturally enough Cairo is not pleased with this programme, and the editor of the Times illustrates his individual opinion of Mound City. by the following uircu instance: We saw a couple betting high at draw poker, the other night. The ante was two niggers, and the little one had run up the pot to a cotton plantation and three stern wheel bouts. "I'll go you the City of Sandoval better," said the big one. "I'll see you with Mound City and call youl"aiid t'other, triumphantly. "Pshaw! that ain't money enough," said big oooes, "Well, I'll take that back, and bet you a keg of tar nnd a blind horse." "That'll do," said hig bones, "but don't try to ring Mound City in again, for I want to play a decent game." Mutton ts.

Whatever we may think of this remark we cannot but bo struck with the power which politeness had over the infidel. And as this infidel is not nn exception, it may be well to ahow aonie of thu advantages of being polite: 1. H' confirm to the Scriptures. If St. Paul taught politeness by his example, so did he in his writings. He tells us, "in honor we must prefer one another." Here is the great secret of politeness, viz: forgetfulness of self. In another place he says, "Bo courteous," in other winds be polite. 2. We make Friends. Nothing so wins upon strangers us true politeness. A little attenlb.il shown in a stage, or in the cars, or at a public table, costs us very little. But what on effect it has upon the persona to whom the attention ia shown. The pleased look, the grateful smile show ue we have gained 11 friend. 3. We increase our Us'fulness.-One reason w hy ministers and good Christian people huve no more influence, is oil account of their sour face uud lorbid. ling countenance. They look us if they said kei-p uway from me. Bui if they allow the vultjiir lo approach within reach of their majestic presence, there is a pompous manner or way they have, which prevents tiie heiirls of others going out to them, and thus influence over such people is lost. 4. It gives Success. Let any man who has goods to sell, or ollicu to attain, be kind and polite, no hhiun like thai put on by the poli ticians mid his goods ure sold, and his office reached, ten times sooner than the man w ho looks mud, and cuts you up as ho cuts off his calicoes uud clothes. Politeness, of all things earthly, costs the least. But ita power, it is not saying too much, is tremendous. The polite man, other things being anything liko equal, will accom plish good in the world, over the rest of tluJ 1 world without this accomplishment. C , Anecdote or a Gkoksia Judge. In 185, there was tried in the Circuit of Georgia, a case of involuntary manslaughter, in thu expressive language of a witness, the accused while drunk, pulled nut his knife, and "sloshing it about," struck the deceased in the abdomen. The attending physician being called to the stand to make the usual proof of the nature and extent of the wound, testified, "that the knife entered tho lower portion of.the abdomen, penetrating the per itoneum, and thence extending through the omentum, to the vicinity of the illiac re gions." The clerk, to whom nil of thia wus Greek, inquired of the Solicitor-General if he desired that portion of the doctor's testi mony taken down. Tho Solicitor anticipa. ting some fun, replied in the affirmative, and requested the doctor lo repeat it slowly, which he did, in lunguuge if possible, mure Incomprehensible.
