We therefore copy the follow ing, from the New York Express, npon ths Virginis "Oyster Question," having an ex ceeding good relish sbout it : The Virtnio Oyster Question. Once up on a lime, 11 is recorded, the cackling of a gooae aaved Rome, and what the goose did for the now lone mother of nations, that no ble animal the oyster is destined to do for the mother of statesmen the good old common wealth of Virginia. Thus ara the meanest and most insignificant instrumentalities often the agencies of momentous events 1 Virginia, it may not be generally kuown, is rapid I v de generating into s condition of profound in pecuniosity; her State Treasury is "kinder gin eout," and, in order to replenish it, Governor Wise, with that atalasmsnlike appreciation of the "crisis," proposes to lew a tax upon ths capacious oyster beds that line the drowsy shores of the Chesapeake. The feeowmes) dution is received with much favor, we see, by the public journals of the Old Dominion; and, in aupport of it, we have an array of facta and figures which shuts the door to sny snd sll argument per contra. All other States, we are told, derive s revenue from their oys ter beds why should Virginia be an excep tion ! Sure enough, why T Eighteen million bushels of the bivalvea are carried out of the State annually by the New England Yankees snd the New Yorkers, who first eat the "ani- mal" itself, lo sstisfy their luxurious palates, and then mash up his shell for lime, to build their houses with. The value of those eigh teen million bushels, it is thought, must be between five and six millions of dollars and, with this immense capilul drawn from her an nually by the Northern oyster-eaters, it is a shame that the "mother of statesmen" should go sbout begging, with hardly a penny in her pocket! Hence we Northerners may ss well moke up our minds to the oyster tax. It may add a few cents to the value of our "half dozen raw," but, if the chivalry are ao badly out at tho elbows, we ought not to complain. we like to be charitable, we must, howev er, insist upon it, ss a condition for putting up wiih the tax, thai the quality or Uovernor Wise's oysters improve upon that which made us Gothamites all so very sick, s few summers since. If we belonged to the school of strict constructionslists, we might object to the levying thus of a "duty on exports," but, ss it is, we Northern Uystermen sre dis posed to be liberul. We do not know that we should even protest if the Gov. should send in s message recommending an extra levy on crabs, clams, lobsters, shrimps, snd other crustneeuus creatures. The Constitu tion, to be sure, says nothing sbout clams, or shrimps, or lobsters but then, don't those very oyster-eating Yankees themselves say, there is a law "higher" than the Constitution? Anyhow, the Virginia State J reasury ia in necessitous circumstances snd everybody must know that "necessity has no law." Be sides, good oysters agree very well with most peoples Constitutions. "Got." This word is very improperly used on msny occasions. We have heard the tobacco ehewer thus address his friend: "Sam have you got sny tobacco?" It would have sounded much better and been more grammatical "Sam have you any tobacco." The merchsut says we hsve got no sugar. Why not say, we have no sugsr? The word is incorrectly used in colleges, academies, schools, hslls of legislation; with the lawyer, mechauic, doctor, farmer and merchant; and in all of these institutions, and with all of these institutions, and with all of these pro fessions, and among all the classes here enumerated, they would be benefitted by a little reflection and study, and thereby aee the propriety of avoiding the too frequent ua of the word "got," when there is no ne cessity for it, 1 Wonder whst the author of the above "got" for his pains? . A White Girl amono the Indians. The St. Louis Republican, of the 9th instant, says that Mr. Achner recently saw a white girl, about nine yeara of age, in the camp of the Cheyennes. She was raised as an Iudian, snd she represented thst her parents were from Green county, Illinois, and that she was stolen from them by the Indians when the train of emigrants wss crossing the plains but she did not know whether her parents were liv ing, or dead. Mr. Achner was unable to res- cue her by force, or to purchsse her, her enp tor being absent on a hunt; but he was quite confident of being sbls to do so on his next expedition among the Indians. County Papers. "I don't take the coun ty paper, it is too nesr home; I know sll that is irobr on wiihoui iu and men 1 m tuning one or two other papers, snd I c.m'l afford lo pay a dollar a year more tor a paper I ean do without." Juat ao old croaker; you can't nay a dollar or two a year more to aee an ac count of all the stray horses snd cattle that are being taken up in your eounty, when, perhaps a aingle paper containing an account of your own stock being taken up, might ssve you twenty dollars? You can't pay two dollars a year to know the slats' of bounces in your own county, snd to know whether your officers are doing their duty! You can't pay two dollars to have the ssles of properly in your county sdvertiaed snd placed in your hands, informing yon of the time snd place of aale 'hen by attending the sale, you might get s bargain of several hundred dollars? Well, if you csn't, let it slone, we will try to live without your dollar or two. That's W.Pulaskt Ctttxen. rW Cant, George W.

Ths neglect of precision te the use of words, snd the ignorance snd misapplication of certain terms of art, frequently involve the simplest subjects in inextricable confusion. Lsw, under such circamstances, becomes learned jargon Medicine, a humbug Poli tics,sn unmeaning clatter History a fable and Theology, a web of miserabls sophistries snd senseless metaphysical subtleties. Lan guage ceases to represent thought, snd thought is permitted to wander about without either a local habitation 01 a nam. The constant use of the terms ie jurt snd ie facto by certain Congressmen and editors, in connection with the rights of Gen. Walker in Nicaragua, satisfies as thst they are mis taken in the application of them, orelae they affect a learning when tiey have it Dot. It ia alleged on alt occasion a that Walker, though not ie facta, is it jurt President of Nicaragua. Let us examine this ie jurt claim for a too ment. Nicaragua ia an elective Republic, and not a hereditary Monarchy. It la admitted both by the friends snd the enemies of Walk er, thst his government commenced by revo lution snd was ended by revolution. It is both a legal and political axiom, that the same power which can bind can loose. The government of Walker Wss upheld by the sword, snd it wss overthrown by the sword; where, then, either in theory or In fact, is his iejure right to the Presidency of Nicsrsgua? We think it exists only.as the lawyers say, in nuotous or it may be a caae of coram turn judice, as illustrated by the following anec dote : A legal friend of ours, wss once employed by a very important, but really Ignorant client Justice Shsllow msds oul quite a plain caae, and Lawyer Snap told him he would recover beyond the ahade of a doubt The trial in due time came on, and the Justice wss Incon tinently mulcted into the costs. The indig ant "Squire bucked up to Snap, and demand. ed how it happened that he lost so plain case ! Snap (who was always too aharn to remain in a acrape) at once assumed a digni fied air and replied "'Squire Shallow! your case wss capital, the pleadings sll proper, the witnesses sll honest, ths jury intelligent, the law plain, and the Judge impartial but (hold here!) your esse was coram non judice "Co ram whatr replied the astonished Shallow, "Coram nonjuiice" quietly snswered Snap. The client scratched his head, pulled ont ten dollars, hsnded it lo Snap, snd left, muttering to himself "Coram nanjudice Snap la very smart fellow, but w hat can a mun do agin auch a rascal ss Coram nonjudic J" General Walker is said Atf be a jure, and f!..

Charles the First wns nol only iejure, but iejaeto King of finglaud; but the regicides, as they lifted his dripping head aloft from the scaffold und shouted Oliver! exhibited to the world that, even in a hereditary monarchy, neither de jure not ie facto, in a fuir field and free fight, can con tend successfully with coram non judice. Coram si ways has possession, snd possession is nine-tenths of the law. Coram was with Walker before he wss illegally captumd in Nicaragua; and if Walker relies only on de jure, we think he might st once pay up the costs and walk out of Court for "what can any man do agin coram non judice" and de facto, united to oppose his possession?' Columbus Enquirer. A New Conqueror. A few days sgo, a couple of foola gut into a fight on one of the wharves in Boston. But, before they hsd chance to injure each other, a very aensible fellow s clerk in one of the stores elbow ed his way through the crowd aod flung 1 handful of flour into the face and eyea of the enraged combatants. The battle ceased very suddenly, and the parties, as soon as they recovered their sight, showed some fine specimens of tall wslking, smid roars of laughter from the spectators, This is the best Boston notion out yet- That clerk ahould be created Lieutenant of the Police. They quell mobs in Russia by playing the fire-engines npon them. Impelling Railway Trains vp Steep At- Cetits. M. Regazzali, an Italian inventor, is the originator of a peculiar method of impel, ling railway trains up steep ascents. A cylin der huvlng 00 Its circumference two helices, forming a double-threaded screw, is placed under and parallel to the axis of the boiler. This screw cylinder is set In motion by the engine, and it gears with a series of horizon tal pulleys placed between the line of rails, which pulleys act as a left-handed screw, snd in this manner the train la woiined up the In cline. ty A Clergyman was walking out one day and psssed two little boys,Nne of whom made a bow. Aa he walked away, he heard the following amusing conversation : "Why, John, didn't you know thst wss Parson May?" "Of course I did," "Why didn't you mske a bow?" "Why, mother dont belong to his church." HuRTlNO on THE Sabbath. The new Mis sissippi code hss ths following In relation to the violation of the 8abbnth : If any person shall be fonnd hunting with a gun on the Sabbath, he shall, on convic tion thereof, be fined not less thsn five, nor more than twenty dollars. ry We hsve heard a good many touch ing expressions of filial affection, but nons equsl to the following which a western msn really gave vent to not long sine : "My fath er ia the only man I ever allow to be sassy to fps without licking blip." ' Charles Dicekrs on Horses. I object to the personal appearance of the horse. I pro test sgninst the conventions) ides of besuty as attached to that animal. I think his nose too long, his forehead too low, snd his legs (except in the esse of ths cart horse) rldicu lously thin, by comparison with the size of his body. Again, considering how big an animal he is, I object to ths contemptibls delicacy of his constitution. Is he not the sickliest creature in creation? Does any child catch culd aa easily ss a horse? Does he not sprsiu his fetlock, for all his appearsnes of strength, ss essily as I sprain my snkls? Furthermore, lo take him from another point of view, what a helpless wretch hs Is! No fins lady requires more constant wsiting on than a horse. Other animals ean make their own toilette; he mnst have a groom.

Hs will start at a piece of white paper in the road, as if it were a lion. His one idea, when he hears a noise he is not accustomed to, is to run swsy from it What do you say lo those two com mon Instances of the- sense snd conrage of this absurdly over-praised animal? I might multiply them by two hundred, if I choose to exert my mind and waste my breath, whjch I can never do. I prefercoming at once to my last charge against the horse, which is the most serious of all, because it affects his moral character. I accuse him boldly, in his capacity of aervsnt to msn, of slyness snd treachery. I brand him publicly, no 'matter how mild he may look about the eyes, or how sleek he may be sbout the cost, as a systematic betrayer, whenever he csn get the chance, of the confidence reposed in him. A Decided Opinion. Rev. Geo. E. Fisher, recently dismissed," says the Boston Trnn script, "by council from the pastorate of the Congregational Church at North Amherst prenohed a farewell aermon on the 10th inst, in which he expressed his opinion with per feet freedom of the opposition which had procured his dismission. The tone with which the reverend gentleman came down upon his enemies may be judged from thi sentence of his sermon, which is all alive with tho same vigorous style of speech:" It was an opposition conceived in ain. and brought forth iu iniquity, increased by igno rance, lea oy envy, losien-d by jealousy, pro moled by pride, fanned by disappointed am, bition, continued by malice, enoouraired hv timidity, strengthened by the unexpected yielding of good men, perpetuated in stub- Dornness, and triumphant in sell-will and wickedness. Then and Now. In January last the times here were "flush" and the imports of foreign merchandize at this port, for the first three weeks 01 it, amounted lo 03,545,462. Jan uary 1858 the times are commonly under stood to be not flush but on the contrary, quite the reverse. Imports for first three weeks 81,340,960. Reduction, $1,804,503. This shows what may be called a "healthy movement in me nini direction. 11 shows that we are cutting down our bill fur silks. satins, laves, anil other luxuries, and that the McFlimsevs are taking in a big reef.
