Under this lend, Elli, of the La Fayette Courier, gives us the following article of the good things. We know how to sympnthise with the editor of the Courier. . We recom mend his article to some of our readers: "Let no one imagine for a moment that such officers as Congressmen, Governors, Auditors and Sheriffs are the only officers that receive perquisites over and above their legitimate fees. Far be it. The printer gets a large amount of 'pickings,' but 'all over the left' A few 'items,' in proof. We have been advertising for 'Sloan's Oint ment,' to the amount of twenty-five dollars, and the other day received, by way of a per quisite, a notice to discontinue : the proprietor has failed, and made an assignment to lirs creditors. Isn't that a perquisite "over the left?" "Oilier perquisites come in the shape of pa pers returned, endorsed by the postmaster, 'not taken out,' 'ran away,' 'in State's prison for robbing a hen roost,' 'ain't worth the pow der to kill him' after the paper bas been reg ularly sent for two or three years. "Another gratuitous perquisite, such as we ncboow ledge the receipt of this morning, is from a rich firm, doing a business of at least $50,000, growling at a bill of $10, for insert ing a business crd for one year, wbich card has undoubtedly secured a business of thou sands of dollars, and swearing never to patron ise the paper again." Other 'stealings are in the shape of papers -discontinued, kicks, caffs and -curses, because a printer dare express an honest opinion, either affirmatively or negatively, upon' whatever subject, local or foreign, political or religious er moral." "Who would not be a printer, and enjoy such perquisites ?' An old man, of 60 rears, w as-committed to prison for a short time last week, at St. Louis on the oath of a young lady of sixteen thnt he had threatened to hill er within ttuee days, if she didn't marry him. Some eighteen months aero the two cot acquainted, and the old gentleman made overtures of marriage. The girl refused, but it is said consented to his urgent request, to accept Irom mm in presents a considerable sum of money. From that time to this be has not failed to press his suit and she has continued to accept various sums to the aggregate tune, it is said, of $25,000. What a silly old cogger he must be to think of soaking a pretty young lady, of 'sweet six teen," with a fortune of $25,000, marry sucb an unrolled mummy. Cin. Enquirer. Womes and Newspapers. The facetious editor of the Boston Republican is warm in the praise of his lady sutajribers. He says: "Wo men are the best subscribers in the world to newspapers, magmines, etc. We have been editor now going eiyht years, and we have never lost a sin;li' dollar by female subscri bers. They seem to make it a point of con scientious duty to pay the preacher and the printer two classes of the community who sutler more by bad pay, and no pay at all, than all the rest put together. Whenever we have a woman's name on our book, we know it is just as good for two dollars and a half as a picayune is tor a ginger cake. Moreover, he asserts that Indies read the newspapers to which they subscribe, and con cludes by declaring that he 'would rather have a dozen ladies on his book than one man 1' Not Bad. A good story is going the rounds of the papers of a merchant in New York, who w ben hrst married, told nis wite that for every scion,' she produced he would place at her disposal $5000. After a lapse of years he fail d, and upon informing his wife of his embar rassments, she quietly placed in his hads bonds to the amount of $30,000 as the products of her industry ! remarking at the same time, 'rod see, Charles that I have not been 'die, and if you had been half so iadustriotu as your broth er over the way I should have had $60,000. Middle Bait, to prevent Cabs hukningoff the Track. Judge Carpenter of Rome, has invented a means of preventing railroad trains from running off the track. This invention con sists of a middle rail placed in the centre of, and raised considerably above the two outer mils, and fastened to the same cross-tics.. A saddle is attached to the enigne and cars at both ends, which sets over the middle rail, with friction rollers, to play on both sides of it, there by preventing the cars from rocking or running off. Wherever there is a tendency to run off, these friction rollers play against the middle rail, and bring them back to their place again. It costs $500 a mile, and an adoption of it could be made to assist trains in ascending elevated planes. Scientific American. The Industrial Congress, in New York, has elected seven delegates (with substitutes) to the National convention of Washington, to be held at Washington City on the 2d of June next!

Why, hundreds of adventurous men make the circuit .of the world for less novelties than that. Cincinnati Enquirer Tbe Law And The Prophets. Jesus, I suppose, is acknowledged as the Father of commentators on the Old Testament Whenever he gives his opinion on the mean ing of any biblical saying, that is taken as the true interpretation. The phrase, "the law and the prophets," is equivalent to saying, the writings or teachings of the Old Testa ment, I suppose, and it will be of some im portance to knew what that teaches. There is no weightier question. It is the all, for it imbracea the happiness of the whole race in tis signification. And whatever secures that, the present and future well being of mankind, must be of supreme importance. To teach what will do this is the aeknowldged object of the Old testament, of the New, and all the great and good of all time. It is an all ab sorbing question. What can surpass in im portance that which will promote the best in terests of an eternally living, conseious, hu man being? its first claims all admir. All alike are in search of happiness, nil estimate it; all alike hunger and thirst after it. The difference among mankind on this subject lies in the means that are used in securing hapi ness;they are numerous, and often antipodal, when they should be those that are embraced by the passage, "the law and the prophets." Hence it becomes of the utmost importance to us to know what this comprehensive phrase means: The whole human family is but an aggre gation of individuals a multiplication of them. The laws which ate designed to govern one, should govern all, and those laws which can make one a child of God, can equally every one. This is every where ndmitted. But what are the fteans, the laws that will ac complish this ? Numerous are the opinions on this subject, great is the division here. The reverend world, the scientific, the literary and the unlettered are alike unsettled, disa greed and perplexed on this subject. The question comes back afresh, what does the phrase, "the law and the prophets" mean ? Who is authority on this subject? What commentator will the world acknowledge? He who bad "no place to lay his head" is sufficient ; bis interpretations are universally acceptable, and if we can give his, the world will abide by it - He said on an important occasion, after re viewing the state of mankind, his own mission and the Old Testament, "whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so to them," for "this is the lr.w and tbe proph ets;" or in other, words, if you do that, you do all your heavenly Father requires of you, all that the Old Testament teaches and demands, and all that I find that is requisite for man kind to do to become images of Ood, heirs of immortal life, children of heaven, and happy forevermore. Such are the words of Jesus an this deeply interesting subject. Does this, in the light of philosophy, in tbe light of spir itual knowledge, look satisfactory ? Can the scientific world gainsay this revelation? Can they disprove it, and is there any disposition in man to deny, that "Do unto others as ye would that they , should do unto you" is a wholesome doctriue a principle of universal applicability, of great worth, and of immedi ate and -continual happiness to all who prac tise it? Does it look rational that that prin ciple can secure the present and eternal hap piness of a single persen, of a whole world ? Does it appeal to the ignorant or the enligh tened, the evil or the upward and progressive nature of Man ? Is it mysterious, blind , any asking of faith in a priest's dream, in some thing beyond the comprehension of the mind Ia it a mere abstraction, a vapor, a scholastic mystic theory, a wordy creed, a nonentity, a Sabbath Day piety, meeting house religion? No! There is no wild, impracticable theory about it, no sky dogma, nor particular days' value about it, but it is simply Righteous ac tion between individuals, on Tuesday as well as Sunday, on one day and on every day, for ever and ever. Does it require something else than individual Righteousness? Some thing more than every day virtue and integri ty, a faith in a myth beyond "Do unto others as ye would that they should do unto you?" The lowly Jesus does net inculate such a no tion ; his great sermon is remarkable for its direct, momentary, practicable truths those that take hold of our daily walk and conver sation ; daily thoughts, feelings, and desires. If practised by all, the Chinese walls of sects would soon crumble and become but a part of the eiirfh on which we tread: simply pavementsfor the hoofs and wheels of busi ness. If practised, the Temples of God would find employment seven days in a week. instead of one. If practised, the House of Worship would be as numerous as human hearts as costly as human souls, as durable as human spirits, and as useful as human actions. Ignorance then would gradually disappear from each child as he passes from the cradle to the grave. Though in childhood the world may look dark, yet in age it will be filled with light; though at first our duty may be du bious, at lust it will appear clear and desira ble; as we pass along the line of life, the shades of nigTit will disappear : mental twi light will soon appear; the fair, open, and bright face of the Sun of Intelligence will rise into view, pointing out the paths that man should follow in all their windings, commence ments, and terminations. Each then will be come a growing moral and mental Lamp ; faint at first, but oak-like, taller, stronger, and larger, from year to year, till it pierces the very heavens. Righteousness will become more and more the fruit of human actions, as the light of the La.np burns olearer. brighter, and longer. The practice of this "law and the prophets." is the great duty of women; she should become identified with it; she should herald it to the world in all its beauty, truthfulness, applicability, usefulness, and rea sonablness. She should be in haste to show that it is not a myth, not a distant Will-with-a Wisp, alluring mankind into extensive morass es and dark bogs, but actually what every person can place in his bosom as a light from heaven to guide his bark upon the stream of time to the unruffled and calm harbor of plen ty, of peace, and happiness. Here, indeed, is a mission for women, extensive aR her powers, laudable as she desires, and ample as her as pirations. Genius of Liberty. Eleven ladies have been admitted as Free Masons by Lodge No, 342, Tottenville, Slafen Island. The historian of the event says 'they expressed themseives highly pleased.' A lady remarked to a printer, the other day, that though we might print a kiss, we must never publish it. Another Chance for Questions of Priri lege. The contagion appears to be spreading, Somehow, the idea has got out that the.pres f;ii! Democratic House of Representatives is not the wisest, most illustrious body in the world. Gov. Wood, it is said, has. promul gated that idea, and some even go so far as to say that he is willing to give his certifiaite, with the Great Seal of the State attached thereto, on this point Locofuco papers, and Locofoco people (there's the rub!) are fast becoming impressed with this conviction. But the latest and sharpest most cutting. because most truthful expose of tbe kind, we find in the last number of the Circleville Watchman, a Locofoco paper of the strictest sect. The editor even goes so far as to speak in defence of Medart! and if that don't show that a man is hopelessly depraved, then we would like to see better evidence. A Colum bus correspondent of the Watchman aforesaid, discourses as follows. Read it, ponder upon it, and then look out for questions pririllegci "Our Columbus Correspeudene. "CoixMbus, March 30, 1852. "Editor Circleville Watchman: Since I wrote you last, the proceedings of the Legis lature may be put in a nut-shell without the least damage to the kernel 'Words, words, words!,' One of the most difficult problems in poli teal economy, if it ean be called econ omy, when connected with the Legislature, is to determine whether the present General Assembly is democratic or nothing. Tie nothings 'appear to have it ly the sound.' From the discussions you would not suppose that any definite line of action was settled. The bodies ap pear to be in favor of nothing. It is all a mix. No matter what question comes up, it is the unlucky fate of the present Legislature to en deavor to surround it,' without resolving to lake any side. It is truly 'all talk and no ci der.' . 'Chaos is come again.' It is no use to disguise the fact that the whole affair is an unmitigated bore, with the poiut broken off from the auger. This is very nearly the universal opinion among friends, foes, and that larger class, those who are entirely in differen t to what : the Assembly may say or do. Here is a synopsis of the proceedings of both Houses for tbe last month, and I advise you to set the type composing it 'in a cool place,' so that you may use it at the end of the session, if so desirable a thing should happen in the teeth of four dollara per day : "What are we about? Shall we print? Shan't we print? Curse Sam Medary ? Where are we going to? What are we doing? Who'll be President? Where's the tax bill? Hear me speak 1 Mr. Chairman! - Hang the banks! How's the City Bank? What'll we do with the Penitentiary? We must have four- dol lars! Give me my postage I High salaries! Dignity of tbe people! My constituents! Cheat the printers! Go to the Devil! Let's take a drink ! There you have it, and if you can imagine this, "legislation,' you will be a remarkbly vivid gentleman on dreams. . Such, however is life. And the speaking as a general thing could be matched by Baalam's war horse. It only spake once. If this Legislature, with the ears of that animal, only had his modes ty and moderation, 'it might be happy yet' Si sic omnial Here is a speech, however, and from the chipjude of the Mock. "Mr. Cheennan! I ainl a going to go for this here bill.' And I warn the gentleman who goes for it that they'll catch it at the poles next 'lection. Why, sir, Mr. Cheerman, the people aint a going to be cntched with no such humbug poltroonnery as this here bill satisfactorily demonstrates. No, sir, Mr. Cheerman! We was sent here to see that no cupiditious remorse kin catch the taint of Nessus' shirt on the interest of the people s welfare, and my constitchuenls don't go for to expect me to set here and lay idle when such mountainous work is being heaped on the shoulders of honest tax payers backs! No, sir! Mr. Cheerman!" "I have said that was a chip. So it is. though as a general thing, they are indefi nitely longer, so much so indeed, that you might easily carry out the whole Legislature on a couple of them. "A sight of the House is comfornble. Look ing over the sbonlders of a shoal of Sergeants at-Arms, you see before you an undistinguish able mob, cutting up sand-boxes, tearing pa per, throwing wads, chewing tobacco, nd shaking fists, legs and arms at the Chairman, who is supposed, from his equanimity, to have his ears stuffed with cotton. The room is tolerably well filled with members, the inters tices being chucked with messenger boys, and the whole fringed with Sergeants-at-Arms. As for the Senate but we will go into that another day. "I am aware that I should talk more se riously on so melancholy a subject as the present General Assembly. Peter wept when he denied his Master, but we have more abun dant cause for teats if we must acknowledge our publio servants. God bless the new con stitution, but there is an awful set of boys han ging on it, and we must get the driver to 'cut "But we will go into this subject more at length in future communications. Talking mildly will not do, aud, unless, we all mean to go to the bottom together, it ia nearly time that there be a little insight for the people. They must see that nothing is done, and all they want to know is, how the Legislature manage to do 'so deuced much of i'.' "The Canal Injunction case was argued by counsel on motion to dissolve injuctioh, at Mt. Vernon, on Thursday and Friday last It was the first battle-Geld for the Board of Public Works, in their warfare with the rail road companies of the State. The case will not be decided until next week. I am inclin ed to think that the decision of the court will be a kiud of compromise between contending claims.

A despatch was received on Suturday from a citizen of Toledo, stating that at a public meeting held on Friday evening, it was unani mously resolvod to submit a proposition to the voters of that city, to subscribe stock to the Junction Railroad to the amount of-3100000. It is thought that the measure will carry by a large majority. With the cartuinty that this work will go forward lo the completion, it is but natural that our Toledo friends should feel solicitous to place themselver in an advantage ous position in relation to the work.

But there is one additional .violation, to which I especially invite your attention. , The contracts are mode fur each House aeperate. while the constitution requires the joint etton of both Houses in the premises. Under the old constitution each House might act as it pleased, and no previous act could trammel it ; but under the new, both Houses must join, not in a resolution but in a um. We ask your attention to the points we have made, und would like to, hav you or any person else tell us, how the printing bill of this winter can be paid when it is thus clearly not only,, unauthorized, but in strict violation of the eonstuation. iou, sir, are the officer who must pass on these, accounts. The law-making power cannot by resolution override the constitution, i Nor can you, sir. order any meney to be paid for printing, ex cept in accordance with a printing law. f he eyes of a tree people are upon you !

When it passes tbe Senate and finally becomes a law of the land, we shall publish it, and then the people can see what kind of a thing it is. There will be times about it; but we refer, remark tilt we know exactly ibe shape it is to assume. A number of bills of minor importance were acted upon in the Senate.

Th Batavin, New York Spirit of the Times says that a citiaen of that town has a setter, now about 19 months old, which bas given milk since May last, without her having had a calf. When about 13 months old, her udder was discovered to be so remarkably enlarged as to induce them to milk her, and on the first attempt about three pints was obtained. Since that time, and up to the present, she has been milked regularly, and has given on an average about three quarts per day. - This nay not be a new thing under the sun, butitis something not hitherto "dreatnpt of in our philosophy.'
