Sensible people know that every rose lias its thorn, and that there is 110 "land under the sun" however desirable, that has 110 'drawbacks.'" In the next pi tee, instead of ask ing parties desirous of settling here two or three prices for property; we ought to oiler land to settlers at a fair price, below, rather thau above, their value. We may very profitably go further. Those of us who have large tracts of nuim promt land could well tiMord to gireu certain proportion of the lots to parties who will improve them, by this means enhancing the value ot the remainder.

The purchase of members was done in a much more skillful manner. Instead of paying a legislator a stun of money for his vote the matter was first talked over, nnd the manner in which he was desired to vote discussed. A l.ttle game of curds was then started, nnd the lobby ist allowed the legislator to win '$.IMI, $1000, or as much money as it was desired he should have. This system he, claimed, had the eOcct id quieting the. statesman's conscience, nnd was just ns reliable nnd eflective in securing the necessary vote. It also had the adviuitiige ot defy in an investigation. The West Point Xeict, so' we learn from its columns, will sus pend publication on the first of August.
