tract ed a very fine oil,1 while the skiu
makes a superior quality of leather.
Some time last fall, howerer. it was dis
covered that the porpoise flesh was savo
ry to the taste, and it soon became popu
lar as an article of food, aud was in great
deniaud. The juicy red meat, which is
taken from beneath a layer of . fat next to
the skin, is prouounced by epicures to be
more palatable than any porterhouse steak
ever cooked. ; In appearance it resembles
beef, but is more solid and of finer grain
and eery, tender, Sonie say that it tate
likcvenison, and that there is nothing ot
the fishy taste about it."
: It is said the world moves, and no doubt
it does ; but on the -subject of eating por
poise flesh it cannot be said to move very
rapidly. The editor of this paper was
a passenger on the good nuivphrodite
schooner, Riauzn, Capt. Bradley "comman
ding, from the port of rew Uiieans,
bound fr New York, May, 1833, and off
the North Carolina coast, shot a porpoise
under the lee side of the bow. It wa
brought on hoard and the lean part of its
flesh was cooked and brought Co tho ta
ble. It was-rich and sweet as tne tender
loins of a pig, which it closly reTsemblvtl,
especially in appearance and fla,yW. We

the Patent Office and the force is ample
to keep the work up to date, but under
the lax mis-management of the , last
eight years, many of these examiners
have spent their time outside of the
ratent umce, or m reacting, taming,
and flirting with the female employes
of the Office. During: the last week a,
change has come over the spirit of their
dreams.! They have been ordered, in so
many words, to stop their gossip, read
ing,? and dishonest loahng, and to bring
their work up to date, even if they have
to work!' at night. The cure that this
order has accomplished appears mira
culous to those unacquainted witn tne
real ; nature of-' the disease." The exam
iners are now doing more in a week
than they have done before in a month,
and at the presentrate, their desks will
in, three! months be cleared of a long

The plaintive cry of previous admin
istrations to Congress lias been "give
us more clerks! more clerks!1' Mr Cleve-
and's rinsina command to the clerks
has been '"give us more work1', and the
clerks, no longer backed by their Re
publican influence, are buckling to it in
a way that is edifying.
There is some discontent and grum
bling at the policy and the appoint
ments of Mr. Cleveland, but it is sporadic
and comes mainly from disappointed
individuals. There is one fact that the
great body of the democratic party
knows and rejoices in, and the .merely
political and office seeking class will be
taught to know it sooner or later. Mr.
Cleveland was not an omce seeker him
self J and has doubtless no love for of
fice seekers as a class. The office sought
himl not to reward him for what he
had done, but because he was believed
to be aqle to begin a desperately needed
regeneration. Representing ideas and
pnnceple3 that are as old as humanity
and as eternal as democracy, he is hap
pily a I hew and unentangled man.
With a new man and new men, let us
have new methods. The great heart
odemocracy may well be indifferent
to private pangs, and chagrins in the
boundless joy of a rescued and reunited
nation i .
