JLet him tell his story, of projects natched from Lis grasp, to that land com pany, and , may be they will pay him for his effbrtSj though unsuccessful. But if they will not, wo see no better chance for the Commissioner to make money than to give himself the contract to furnish the presents, his year, to the Sioux Indians. It must needs be a big contract, for the Department ha3 asked for the moderate sum of thirty thousand dollars ! to pay for the transpox tation merely. And it would be no more than reciprocal to admit some of his official inferiors into the concern. They have scrv ed him faithfully as minions; they have turn ed spies and common informers tell-tales and &landerers,and made shipwreck of whatever of principle they brought inta his dp partment.

It is reported the Governor Las split the Leavenworth ad Kitkapoo Districts, and united the two into one D.s rxt. We know r.ot what reliance to place ia the rumor, and for the pfeaeat will postpone any rcraar!c3 until we '("tjlLe vScnl account. give him crodi; fcr honeat, though mistaken, motives. Theyccnild forgive h it ignorance and forget their own wrongs. Hut we cannot believe knowing as much us we do of the ;4iiUT that his ellorts derive their force from any other motives than the most base and sordid. They saw Mr. Mannypenny come among them, amid their honest efforts to secure a home, w ith smooth words upon his tongue; they were not displeased with him iu advance; but they were too pure in their own intentions to offer him, or his agents, a bribe; and then they saw him go fort!, to slander and injure them, and to prostitute his official position at a shrine of dis-appointment or revenge. The Delaware treaty, for which Mr. Mannypenny so much exalts himself, it should be known was no free act of that tribe.' The clause which enjoins upon the government to sell the laud at auction, was repeatedly and earnestly met by their opposition, and they only yielded when influences were brought U bear upon their judg ment, which we know not of now, and may not know until another chapter of the mysteries of Mannypenny's iniquity be opened. We see, however, that the obnoxious feature was placed in that treaty contrary to the wishes of the Indians, and unnoticed by Congress, and all the trouble and injury that may grow out of it was a voluntary act, which wc have a right to say at tributed lo the cupidity of Air. Mannypen ny, or his outside employers; for certainly no jiiUu, high in position, would encounter the deserved iinuatum of a large community, doing at the same time a wrong act, without immediate or prospective hope of gain. An! the Delaware squatters, by their early and peaceable settlement on these lauds, may felicitate themselves upon defeating an attempt of capitalists to monopolize all the Delaware land bordeiing on the Missouri river. If the truth ever'comes out v.e shall fin J that the wishes of the Delawares and the rights of the frontier- uica were, ia the miking of that trear, given in their charge.
