The noise which the Union makes over "pro. a.ription" hardly amounts to more than the ex. plosiom of a squib ; neverthele.s, he is blown Ay high with his own gunpowder. We pubh liged a day or two since a temperate and dig. .d rebuke administered to the whining ex. i by a democratic brother in Georgia. now offer our readers certain samples of a Sscathing and inerciles. assault upon the made by another democratic confrerd no less a personage than the poetical politician of the N. F. Post. Just hear how well one Lcofco can maul another:-N. 0. Bee. "The.cry of proscription from the Washington Union, is a trifle more impudent than Falstaff's Plague of all Cowards," alier the memorable display of his prowess at Gadshill. We marvel ome at the poker of face which coullkhave so. berlv penned the foregoing exaract, than at Fal. statfs, when he point,-d to his "sword, hacked like a bhad-saw," to Now how many hostile bucklers he has ruined "If President Polk ever did recognize the fit ness of a candidate for the duties of an office, as a sufficient ground for appointing him, or his etaness as a sufficient ground for his removal, we have yet to learn the instance. If the Un. ion ever failed to approve of any single act, .say. g or doing, of President Polk, as the dispenser ofEsecutive patronage, or in any other capacity, that instance also we have yet to learn. Pres ident Polk not only never promised, but he newr ,erSve an office to any oman ai ho he did not sup pope would serve his islitical purposes the most ,effectively ; neither did he ever spare one in .kseacept fur the like reasons. Impelled by l bigoted and unmanly spirit of pantizanohip, ,wiIout a parallel in the history of our yovera , t, he pract ihed pullic officers distinguished Jer their ability, position and character, that he might honor men equally distinguished for the1 abLsece of all those attributes. In all this the Washington Union nexer found . aeasiuo for a murmur; but the moment a new administration, to the elevation of which they nmion intentionally gave no suppolrt-what it eadeted as the auppoztr of an op,:;e.-ing candi. date it can claim no credit fur-it sets up such a bowl of lamentation that one wouldki suplpose its editors esteemed the offices of our general government were its principles, and that to sup. i pert the constitution and to do the public prinx ting were identical." The "Tnuussu" thinks that the Locofucos wae'o. right to complain of Removals, anm that em the other hand General Taylor cannau mask. clean sweep. It adds : " We trust a liberal proportion of th, best men now in office willbe kept in, and thmt especially shoes who though they stood .pposd to Gem. Taylor, yet did their utmost to deeat Gea Css, will be favorably re. warded. The Trimbue says, too: "Lot them (the Cabinet) take their time, and when they make appointments be sure they are geod eneo. The People can wait, and the et. perats must, until proper investigations cap e -Meb owithout prejudire to other importana business pressing upon the Departments. Bue ase ft as they ca be well made, let them come.

John Hunter was as remarkable for b:s industry as for his talents, d which his museum alone forms a most extra. ordinary proof. If we look around and contem. plate the histnry of bhose men whose talents and acquirements we most esteem, we And their su. periority of knowledge has been the result eM great labor and diligence. It is an ill.luodedn ntion to say that merit in the long run is neg. leestd. It is sometimes joined tocircumstanees that may have a little infduenee in conterac. ting it, as anu nmfrtnte manner and temper; but it generally meets with its due reward. The world are not fools-every person o, merit has the best chance of success; and who would he ambitious of public approbation, if it had not the power of discriminating ?-[Physician and Physicians. WHAT OUR FINE ERUIT HAVE sPRrNG FROM. -The Peach originally was a poisonous almond. It. flesh parts were then used to poison arrows, and it was for this purpose introduced into Persia. I'he transplanting and cultivation, however not I,,nly removed its poisonous qualities, but pro duced the delicious fruit we now enjoy. The Cherry was originally a beny-like fruit, and cultivation has given each berry a separate stein, and improved it' quality. The common mazzard is the original of most ol the present kinds of cherries. The common wild pear is even inferior to the choke pear, but still by cultivation it has come to rank among Ar finest fruits. The Cabbage originally came from Germany, and is nothing more than the.cgSnmoea kale. ts cultivation produced the pr nt e and its different kinds ; while its bri' os with other .similar plants have pm d the cauli. flower. lTh. hows the benefits ofaltivation in the world but the change which cultiva. bt e tisn the mind oftanr· iaf itely ~-Apw. Agiclli a rtagRs OF MOOLTAr.-The treasures 1 ove-ed in the subterranean chamber of the Istadel, appear to be altogether of oriental iupg nificence and Asiatic profusion. Descending into the cavities in which the treasures of Ahe fortress have been accumulated, the inspecting ficfcer is said to have found opium, and indigo, and salt, and sulphur, and drugs of every des. cription beapqd together in endless profusion ; enormous boards of wheat on one hand, on the other almost irahaustible stores of rice; stacks of ghee vessels brimming with their unctu ous contents ; bales upon bales of costly shawls d gorgeous silk ; chest afier cheat crummed with scabbards, blaing with gold and jewel : jiers of copper canniters filled to the blim witbhokl pohburs. "My poor pen," says a correspond. ent of the Delhi Gazette, "cannot describe the variety of wealth displayed to the inquisitive eye. Tumbrils, under strong guards, have been moving to and fru with gold coin all day. And, in addition to this, three or four crores of specie were still known to be concealed beyond the amount alrea4y discovered-one crore of rupees being one miltoa ofpounds sterling."-Golden Rule. PoTAToes.--Proessor Wilder; who has been thoroughly investigating the potatoe, solemnly denounces it as an article of tod, and says it is the "cause of the moral and physical degrada. tion of rbe nations that use them." We believe that the Prolessor is right. We e;pressed this opinion, in nearly the same words, long ago, al. though we did not know that any other person had arrived at the same conclusiou.[N. Y Star.

The frost, which was so severe in this region produced similar effects on the crops in Texas The following account of a bloody affray i, from the Galveston News; "BLoDor AFFRAY.-It is reported that at a place called 'The Point' in Aanola country, s bloody, scene occurred on Thursday last.-Soma men were playing cards. Twoofthem--adoc. tor and young-(names not remembered) fell out and codcluded to have a fight (with their fists; -went out, stripped themselves, and the young man declined. They then resumed their game. After playing awhile, the young man said he was willing "to fight with knives," whereupon, the Doctor commenced on him. After a few mutual stabs the Dactor killed him. His broth. er then took it up, fought, and was also killed. The other brother of the two, of whom there were, in all, eight, now attacked the Doctor and killed him. Odd Fellorwship and the California Emigre. lion.-The members of our Order now en route for California, via Panama, true to their obliga. tions, have organized themselves into a reliel committee at Panama, and hold weekly meet. ings.

Seasible Joke.--&mebody asked the Baron Rothschild to take venison-"no," aid the Ba. ron, "I never eatsh venshon : I 4on't tink it ish so coot ash mutton-" "Oh!" sid the Baron's Iriend "I wonder at your saying so; if mutton were not better than venison, why does venison cost so much more ?" "Vy 1" replied the Bar. on, "I viii tell you vy-in dish vorld de people alraysh prefers vat ish deer to vatis sheep." (t7 An attempt was made om Friday night. says the Mobile Advertiser, to blow open the iron chest of W. 0. Pape, an exchange broker, in Water street. The robbers, after breaking into his premises, forced off a padlock on the chest door, and putting powder anto the key. hole, blew open its oueer door. There they were stopped, as the chest has three doors. The luck was overcharged, we presume, as the explosioo was tremeadous, removing great weights upon the chest and forcing objects to the opposite side of the street. The robber must have fared badly, from the traces of blood upon the floor around, and the track even to Dauphin street. We hope that the parties may be caught, though one at least may be already well punished for his temerity and villany. A gentleman was lately inquiring for a young lady of his acquaintance. "She is dead," very gravely replied the person to whom he address ed his inquiries. Good God! I never heard of it-what was her disease ?"-"Vanity," re. turned the other; "she buried herself alive in the arms of an old fellow of sixty, with a for. tWne, in order to have the satisfaction of a gilded tomb.~ "CATTLE ON A TRoUSAND HU.nI."-The hacienda, or estate of the Mexican, Jaral, em braces probably the largest landed possession is the world.
