each other. The President possesses

take a familiar case. Our friend and

of his politics, he receives the appoint

quired of him to tine amount of 820,000.

the duties ol his office, in a short time

if there is a farmer between Maine

the particulars, before the inception of

I have recently received several

from various of my personal friend i,
expressing surprise at my course in

course is more astonishing to me that
is, their withdrawal from those with
whom they were used to co-operate,
side by side, anil in the front ranks
parrying every blow aimed at the" Un

assailed Constitution from the inroads
and encroachments of fttealthy Feder

in the purity oftheir devotion to sound

in the conviction, that the hallucina

From Texas. The latest intelli
gence leaves no doubt of the election of
Miraiieau Bonaparte Lamar as
President of that Republic. Mr. L.
is certainly a man of genius and of
versatile talents. Poet, painter, edi
tor, lawyer, legislator, and commander
of cavalry; his faculties are far superi
or to those we are accustomed to meet
in the mass of mankind. That his ad
vent to power in Texas will be marked
by something out of the usual current
of events, we are inclined toanticpate.
It is believed his opinions are strong
against a close connexion of Texas with
(he Northern and Eastern States of this
Union. It is thought he willbe prompt
in joining battle with the Mexicans,
and testing their ability to withhold a
ny longer the acknowledgment of Tei
ian independence. In a few months
we may look for important tidings of
military operations.
The hostility of the Indians on their
Northern frontiers is generally admit
ted by the Texian papers, and we are
told that the Republic is now augment
ing her force by enlistments for the
regular army.
The Mexican General at Matamofas
has of late no otherwise annoyed the
Texians thanby marauding parties of
norse. He is possibly waiting for his
red allies more fully to declare them
selves. JNew Orleans Courier.

The New York Commercial gives the
following account of the remaiks of the
Hon. OoDEir Hoffman:
Mr-IHorrMA had been repeatedly
called for during the evening, and, after
the resolutions were adopted, he ap
peared upon the stand. For several
minutes the applause was so loud that
the voice of a Stentor could scarcely
hare been heard. It is next to impos
sible to report a speech of Mr. Hoff
man. His utterance is so quick his
thoughts flow so rapidly, and die beau
ties crowd so thickly upon the hearer,
that it is very difficult to lollow him.
At times, ton, his eloquence is too much
for the" reporter it enchains his atten
tion, and the pen drops from his hand,
powerless to discharge the duty it should
The following is but a meager sketch
of his remarks, but it is all that our
notes enable us. to furnish:
He said that lie had so often had oc
casion to return thanks to his constit
uents, for the favors which they had
showered upon him, 'that words were
scarcely left sufficient to express his
gralituile. .-He appeared at this mee
ting as a representative of the Whig
party. Those present were aware that
the party to which he and they-belonged
w5s in a minority in Congress that
they roulil do but little in that body.
He alluded, in the most feeling manner
to the course of the Conservatives.
With their aid the .Whigs had preven
ted the marriage of the sword with the
purse a urion the oflspring of which
would have been corruption and ruin.
He described most beautifully the hap
py oil 'ecu which had succeeded the re
jection of the sub-Treasury bill. But
the tempest was only lulled it had not
entirely passed away. If the Van Bu
ren party were successful at this elec
tion, again will the arm be uplifted that
is to strike the fatal blow against the
prosperity of the country, and grind
our devoted city to dust and ashes.
In this Statu was the battle lo be
fought, and the Whigs are now to say
whether their Representatives are to re

popular favor, or whether New York is
to be chained lo the. car of ' despotic
He called upon the vuung men of
New York to perform their duty, and

of the audience to the invocation of the
dying Lawrence, "Don't give up the
ship." Hut, said he, you will not give
up the fchip; you will not abandon her;
you will stand to your guns, and victory
will crown your efforts. In taking
leave of the meeting, he would say, in
the words of as gallant an officer as ever
trod the deck of a vessel, or fought un
