A TttuK Gentleman. No well-bred
person will, be insolent to Lis inferiors
On the otiitsr hand lie will observe a scru
pnlous tenderness of manner towards
tliem, a care of word and action, that will
lighten the load of humanity that they
must necessarily teel, as much as possible.
J lu retirement of heart is the most
prominent characteristic of a high and no
bits spirit. ' It is the only mark of a gen
ileman that is wholly unequivocal. When
. we see a gentleman very choice of his
words, and very dainty at the table, and
yet capable ot insulting the unfortunate
or ridiculing distress, we always think of
the ass in a lion s skin.
A SurPEitY Currency. A Vera Cruz
letter writer says: "In conversing with
one of the officers from Perote, I was told
.1- . , ,
iiiuiatmp was UHnu as irai icuuer, unci
iudeed preferred" in silver. The soap is
made into cukes of the vulue of a cent
and a half, and as these cukes are stamp
ed and pass freely every one takes them
hence, no doubt, the expression, "out of
soap," &c.
irii', c.iiiliitln on ilic War.
Albert Gallatin, following the example
of Mr, Clay, hus given his opinions upon
the war with Mexico: He arrives at the
following conclusions:
That the annexation of Texas was an
(Tensive and unjust act to Mexico.
That the Government of the United
Stales grossly erred in not sending aCom
missionertoMexico, instead of a Minister.
' That Texas never had any valid claim
to the Rio del Norte as its boundary. -That
the United States ought not to
t make a conquest of Mexico; or insist upon
receiving from Mexico any other indemni
fication than that due to American citi
zens, by Mexico, before the war began.
That, as the preliminary to peace, we
ought to evacuate the Mexican territory
now in our possession.
CSTThe New York Herald in remark
iny upon the report of the Secretary of
War, says:- I o do him justice, his report
compares most favorably with the rhodo
montade mossageof Mr. Polk. The style
is clear and forcible and there are none
. of those absurd pleonasms, those endless
repetitions, those uiscussive generalities,
or those abominable cant expressions,
which render the perusal of the l resi
dent's message so nausontirie a task
We know of nothing in modern literature
to compare with that message, hut the
modest reports of Major Genera) Gideon
J. Pillow, ofCerro Gordo celebrity.
IV" Mr. Culhoun in his speech last
February in the Senate, hold the follow
ing romarkable words: "Mexico is as
forbidden fruit. The day of her death
would be almost the end of our political
existence, Her independence, her ca
pacity, her greatness, should be estoemed
by us as noxt in importance to our own,"
