the foljowing extracts'will give sojme faint idea :,
: "Tne Message in which the President stip-
I ports ljis views, is a shallow performance, vul-
hair-splitting' and wire-drawing Schoolman of
the Middle Ages, who thought himself a great
man, because, like all small characters, he had
mistaken cunning for wisdom. It is, however,
quite worthy the man whose imbecility has been
so unhappily displayed in his action on the Or

the enemy's bay was faintly heard in 'the dis.
tancej There is a remarkable similarity in the
President's conduct On these two .subiecls. As
he mouthed and raved about our clear and un
questionable ' right to the whole of Oregon like
unto one of Nat Lee's Bedlamite heroes for
we caii only call it mouthing and raving, when
thebahos of the treaty is known to us, howev
er much it pleased us at the time of its utterance,
bpcause we believed it to be the yarm language
of earnestness and sincerity so has he now
vetoed a bill substantially recommended by him
self, through the report of the Secretary of War,
a highoffirer of his Cabinet. It is true that
the defence has been set up for him, that the
Secretary, though reporting through the Presi-
kdent, really reports to Congress. Granted
but thus does not in the slightest degree alter
the case. It has always been considered at
least, it was in those days when it thought that
some degree of profound statesmanship was ne
cessary in governing a great nation that a Cab
inet should support one uniform policy, as speak-,
ing the sentiments of the party whose principles
it was appointed to aid in carrying out. Who
ever heard of a high Cabinet officer recommen
ding to Congress, through the President, a
course of action directly 'contrary to that of the
President himself, and actually accompanied
with the proper estimates as to the cost of car
rying it out who ever heard of anything of the
kind, we ask, before these days of deception and
palpable fraud 7 What President, with a decent
portion of self-respect, ever practiced such small
intrigue. It is ney in the history of our coun
try, ami no doubt found its origin and motive in
the desire to deceive some members of Con
gress into the support of measures which the
Executive feared might not otherwise prove suc
cessful. As the great words about Oregon were
followed by the smallest possible action, and
were intended only to gull honest men, so was
the course of the President on the subject of im-"
proving harbors and rivers favorable, only with j
the design of gaining votes fori the new Tariff j
Bill, the Administration not having faith enough j
to believ that one righteous I measure could
stand without practicing a little falsehood on an-

to assure me of its utter hostility to the legitimate
ends of government. What we want is not win

each individual to perform, without let or hin-

or of the foot. The real enemies of this substan

o'clock on tlie evening of the 25th ultimo, the
whoje city seemed suddenly to undulate, as i
rolling upon a heavy sea, and, thoiigb there wa$
not a breath of wind, the water in the bay was1
violently agitated. The windows rattled as if
in a strong gale, some doors were burst open!,
and others dashed to with violence. . Two mini
arets belonging to one of the principal mosques
f umbled to the ground with a tremendous crash
several stone houses were thrown! down, and
all the pothers had the walls rent and the roofs
damaged. The merchandise piled in the shops
and stores fell down, and the heaviest' pieces
of furiikure were every where overturned.
Several persons were killed, but the 'number if
not exactly known. Amongst the tottering
sheds .in the' Bazaar great damage : was done
and considerable property destroyed. The moi

turns out that it went into effect immediately on j
its passage, except as to the provision in rela.
tion to specie payments, which is postponed to j
the 1st of January next. And even here there j
was a mistake made, it is alledged the act of j
1789 was revived or kept in force, and this act j
allows- specie only to be received in payments j
to the government ! A Locofoco correspondent i
of the New York Evening Post gives the fol- j
lowing account of the bill, which is, no doubt, j
on Treasury authority t ! ,
44An examination of the Sub-Treasury has
led to the conclusion that it goes into effect im
mediately, so far as to prevent; the treasurers or
receivers from depositing or keeping any money
in thejbanks, or anywhere but inline vaults of
the government. It does not require that spe
cie shll alone be received in payment of pub
lic dues until the first of January! next. But it
leaves no discretion1' as to places of deposit. If,
as is alleged, the act of 1789 is still in force,
nothing but specie can now be received. The
balances at present in the banks cannot he
transferred to other depositories until first of
April next. Such was the intention of those
who framed the law; yet so it reads. An over
sight inconsistent with dates has been the cause
of this jrnistake. What measures'; the adminis
tration, will adopt for a state of circumstances
for wh ich they were not providejd, and wliich
were not expected, remains to be seen." j
