The Van Buren editors sometimes claim credit for the passage of this bill, and yet it is manifest they all regret that it was not defeated.

A resort was then had to tales men, or in plain English such men as were at hand. Now it is clear that on a trial like that, the accomplices, the companions, the friends of the prisoner, are the persons most likely to throng the court and its environs, and tcilk the utmost care on the part of the sheriff, it would be difficult from among these to pitch upon impartial persons.

States, is absolutely payable in specie, gold, silver, copper, real cash; and if they are not so paid, it is because the creditors prefer not to take it. That will be, and has been, the case with government payments. They will be no more payable in specie hereafter, than heretofore.

Every man who has a deposit in a bank, has it in specie. Why does not General Jackson, when his salary is paid, order up the bags of precious metals to the white house? Because when theory becomes practice, he perceives at once that the despised rags are more convenient for his use than the eulogized specie. So it is with all our specie legislators.

Kenrick's American Orchardist, speaking of the size of the leaves, says "Their breadth is stated to be six inches and their length tight; but in rich soils they are sometimes eight inches in breadth and ten in length, or even more." This proves that our soil and climate are eminently adapted to the culture of this invaluable tree or shrub. The soil in which they grow is a rich sandy loam. We thought, when we planted them, that they had room enough for two years, but their foliage is already more crowded than we could wish. They are very beautiful full of leaves of a deep, shining green.

The intelligent editor of the New York American thinks that there is little chance, generally, of impartiality, even when the sheriff may have been disinterested in the selection of talesmen, because the friends of the accused are most likely to be standing about the Court House. How much worse was the matter in the case of Emery Sadler! He was a slave, for the time being, and could have no friends on the jury. Fitten was the master of the Lodge, the judge was a Mason, the sheriff was a Mason, and Masons would not only take an interest in the case, and be present on that account alone, but the tyler ef the Lodge may have notified them to attend.

The capture of the United States frigate President, by a British squadron, off Long Island, near the close of the last war, was marked by many interesting circumstances, which have been communicated to us by an eye witness. It is well known that the President sustained considerable injury by striking on the bar near Sandy Hook, on the night she put to sea, which greatly impeded her sailing.

This accident, and the delay occasioned by it, rendered it very doubtful whether she would be able to elude the enemy's vigilance, who were known to have a force of three frigates and a sixty-four gun ship cruising along the coast. As the day dawned, the apprehensions of Commodore Decatur were realized. The whole of the enemy's squadron was in sight, at no great distance, and in a brief interval their clouds of canvass were seen raised to the breeze in eager pursuit. The largest of the frigates, the Endymion, a ship of equal size and force with the President, took the lead in the chase, and it was very apparent that her superior sailing would render futile all hope of escape from her.
