Wise, of Virginia, one of (he nio.st tearless and and indepen dent KeprP9entalives in Congress, b3 at length succeeded in cbtaining an ln vestigaiini; committee, to assist in ferret ing, out the multiplied corruptions and defalcation of the office holders tinder Mr. Van Buren's administration. On the 2 B ill of December when he made his mo :i' '.'.

We have read tome en trants from it, which have strengthened our former high opinion of bis noble and eilittfii .uiiid , Th commit le wns appointed by bullut, and not by the Speaker, f.s is usual on euch occasions. Mr. Wise declared that he had no confi dence in the Speaker's appointments, for it is in the recollection of ever reader, that in 1836, when Mr. Wise called for a similar committee for the same purpose, that the Speaker appointed six members who were avowedly opposed to the inves tigation, and only three who were is fa. vor it. ' Under such circumstances, bow was it possible for the friends tf investi gation to do any thing; if a proposition was made by its friends, it was immedi ately rejected, and every possible ubt.v cle thrown in itiHr way. It is far differ ent now; the triends tf investigation are in the majority on the committee, and the country , may now expect to hear ot the corruption and inal-practice iu office whef ever it exists. . , The n'Hro Candidates. We under stand that (he W lng candidaies for Gov ernor, Congress, &c, have declared their intention of visiting every county in the State previous 10 the election. That is rght; and we hope the Democrats may do the fame. Let both parties canvass the State freely, and honorably; let lhei state fairly the points at issue, and let the people be Hie judge btlween their,; and the result will be, thai the truth will triumph,' and correct principles prevail.

Mr. Bell stands high a- tnong the Whigs in Congress, as a taten. ted and fearless champion of the free- do m of elec'ions, and an uncompromising fo to the preseut ixtensive system oi'i eculne patronage.

THE PRAIRIE FLOWED. One "of the prettiest sights 1 have yet seen in the west is the flowers of the prai rie,! I have f poken of the fastness and beauty of the prairies as a whole of llieir utility and abundance and were 1 to t;o into a detail and analyst) their great whole, Uhould find a far more beautilul picture ot nature, painted by the Great Designer of the universe, than I have yet atteti'pted to draw. What would the sky be above us without 'the' "stats at heaven? and what, with no irrevetenre may 1 ak, would he the prairie without its flowers? The sky is boundless and beautiful;' but how much rrnre beautiful js "the seeming infinity of space above us when s.'udjed with the stars of heaven' Ifow much triors beau tiful, too, is the praiiie decked with flow ers, painting the "encircling vaatuess' in all the variety and shades and gorgeous1 ness uf the rainbow! f A prairie in spring aod summer is a flower garden, and a gar- Jen of wild flowers to my eye is more at tractive than any thing I have seen iu fbt cultivated gardens ot (be best florii-t.

In the midst of all this, as gems upon the diadem of, the queen, -flowers of every hue a J . form spring up. Linnaius himselt would have gazed in wonder and ..admiration upon a spot like this, for from the borders of the prairie to its centre, and from the cen'ie to the border, again, are seen almost ev ery production of nature, : c ; ' tlFrom giant oaks that wave their branches durk, . o the dwarf moss Uiat clings upon their bark.' , Seen, too, togtthrr, 'mixed , in one mighty scene, with varied beauty glow.'
