May 28—^t  B%i the Presitlenf oj"the United States,  rf pursuance of authority vested in the President of the United States, by tlie act of Congress, approved on the 19th of February last, entitled " An Act to establish a Land Office in the Territory of MichigKn, and foe otker p%irpo«ca," it is hereby declared and made known, that the Land Office for the District of Lands Ipng West of the Meridian Line^ in said Territory, shall be estoblished and held -at Whitb Piokon' Pbairik, on the St Joseph's River, until otherwise directed.  The public sale of lands in the said Western District, which by proclamation, bearing date the 25th March, 1831, was directed to be held at the l^nd Office at Monroe, will take place at Whitb Pioeoit PaAiniK, on the 2d Monday in June next.  Given under my hand, at the City of Washington, this 12th day of May, A. D. 1831.  ANDREW JACKSON, President of the UtiUed Stales.  JNO. M. MOORE,  Acting Commissioner of the Gen. Land OJJice. May 14—U13  the press,and charged him with a^nal intent to coiTUpt the fountiiti or information. If there be-danger of the pre«.s being influenced ^ unworthy stimulants the means of thelwhUe"the Bank are most |iotent. Its secret agents can just run«' distribute in secret tlie needful.  From what we have seen and heard, we have no doubt hundreds of thousands of M'-Duffiie's report in favor of the Bank, an equal number of Mr. Gallatin's remarks on. re-charterin}!; tlie Bank, as also the abusive re-iew of Mr. Benton's speech against the Bank, as also of the appeal to the members of the State Legislature, &c. have been printed in extra papers, and circulated far and wide at the expense of the Bank. The managers of that institution appear to be sensible of the influence of the press in giving a tone to public opinion, and they have, it would appear, made a bold essav to antici|iate the friends of the President, in most cases the most popular publications have been secured—the Bank has money; and money, it is not necessary to remark, is a most potent agent—if money can be brought to bear on Congress, directly or indirectly, we may calculate it will not be spared to ensure a renewal of the charter. If the Bank can be shorn of that influence which makes it formidable, we may consider its doom sealed.  Publisliers we are apprised are liberal in their disbursement, but it is too remarkable and sin^lar to be credited that in those towns where the United States Bank or its branches are located, (without a solitaiy exception so far as our exchange list furnishes the opportunity to test the fact) they would at their own cost, incur the expense of extra publications for each of the papers in favor of the Bank before mentioned, or that tlieir unbought 7.eal would prompt them to send thousands of them to persons who never had subscribed for their paper. The thing is very improbable. I,«a8t week we saw many supplements to the Philadelphia National Gazette, in this town, directed to persons who were not, nor ever had been patrons of that paper. This liberal distribution of extra papers we find to be general from every wfaietvtli« Bank ha» a hab« itation, but seldom elsewhere. The conclusion with us is, that tlie printing paid for by ^e Bank, muit have amounted in the last two years, to more tlian the salary of the President of the United States for tlie same time. *—Virfnnia Gazette.  administration» in the folloti'ing tetmsu  •If the dissolution of Öie Cftttiiw-t has produced dissatisfaction, the wistlorn displayedjin the selection of another, affords more tlian e^ual gi utification.— enemies of the administration can fin<l no just cause to carp at it, it is pleasing to observe the tone of appro!)ation with which its annunciation has been almost univcrs.ally received by its friends. This fact, _while it argues strongly in favor of the President in making the selection, and aifords a favorable indication of tlie strength of tlie new Cabinet, is a guarantee of union and liarmony among tlie supporters of tlio.se fundamental principles with which the Administration of Jacks«»n is identifiefl, and their final and complete triumph over all tlie tricks and artifices of tiieir adversaries."

But did not Adams and Clay recall Mr. Rush from the same station to fill the same office? But this was not all.

The Paper-mill and Saw-mill are nearly new; the site is one of the most favorable in the State, being the first occupied by M ils below the junction of North and South Elkhorn, which, separately, are celebrated mill-streams, and near tlie market of Frankfort, the capital of the State.  The proprietor will give most favorable terms in sale or exchange, being so situated that he can give no personal attention to the management of tlic pro-pertv. Inquire at tlie Globe Office.  Mavis_____________  " ^OTICil—JOSEPH WATSON, Solicitor of _ ^ Claims on the United States, and General Agent, at the City of Washington, having resumed the immediate superintendence of his office, has made arrangements extending both abroad and to each of the States and Teiritories of tlie Union, for the transaction of all business in which the services of an Agent may be desirable, especially the collection of debts, payment^of tiixes and record of deeds, in Ohio, besides a branch of his office at Columbus—he the advantage of an acquaintance with gentlemen capable and trust-worthy in almost every county; and m Jfcfsutucky, he has the co-operation of the Marshal of the .State, whose notice he subjoins; in Illinois, that of John Tilson, Jr. Esq.; in Arkansas, thatof Williiun E. Woodruff, Esq.; in Michi^n, that of James Abbot, Esq.; and when ne commences the publication of his periodical, devoted to the diffusion of information to land headers and emigrants, and to a review of the decisions of Congress and State Legislatures, and of the public officers affecting the interests of claimants particularly those of the first and second war of Independence, he will de gignate the name of his Agents in other States and at the seats of Government of the principal powers of Europe, and Soutli America. Insurance on lives and against fire, may be effected tlirough this Ag^ency and deposits may also be made in the Nevv York Sav ings Bank. He lias had ten years of public 8er\-ice in I'arious responsible stations, and sixteen years expe  It is quite amusing to read the comments of the opposition on the subject of the recent changes in the cabinet. At one time tliey tell us mey know all about it, and the causes which induced it; and then they tell us they are utterly unable to understand any thing about it-Now they can see in it more than any one ever dreamed of; and pretend that it is as plain as the nose on a man's face; and anon, it is shrouded in inextricable mystery, quite beyond the ken of man or mortal. One asserts that Mr. Van Buren wrote both his own letter and tiiat of the President in answer to it; and auoUicr t^lls us that such an assertion is " wicked."  They miglit just as well save themselves all further trouble about the matter. The letters were not written for their satisfaction and it ia perfectly immaterial to the authors anc to the public, wheti»er they understand them or not; or what tliey may think or say respecting them. They were written for the satis-laction of the public; and the public are at no loBs to jwerceive in them the evidence of man-y andnonorable feeling on the part of the Mirsons concerned in the transaction, and a disposition to sacrifice all minor considerations in tlieir efforts to promote the good of the country, and the support of pure republican principles.  That the opposition have witnessed tliis voluntary surrender of power, patronage and place, by the late Secretaries, with surprize, we doubt not. It i§ so inconsistent with their doctrines and the example which have been set|>y their,favorite politicians, that it is a matter of no surprize to us, that they cannot understand it Had Mr. Clay been placed in the situation of Mr. Van Buren, they know  FF-DERAI-ISM AND DEMOCRACY. ^ The Federailists are constantly endeavoring instructions whatever I "Mr. Kin^, after, ob- j to impress tJie belief tliat there ia no difference taining one interview with the British Minis-1 between them and the Democr»4s-^at there ter for Foreiga Affairs, and writing four or iis no difference of principle between the two five letters, was taken sick, and obli^d to re- great parties into which tlie nation is divided turn home, where he soon after died.

His official duties as Marshal of Kentucky, require him to visit nearly all parts of the State occasionally, and will rive him unusual opportunities for prosecuting the business which he has undertaken. He will thereby be enabled frequently to secure debts by lien or otherwise, when they could not perhimsbe coerced bylaw.

King received an out fit of 84500! and a salary at the rate of four thousand five hundred aollars per annum, for the sixty days he remained in Kngland after the departure of his father! This useless expedition, alone, cost the United States upwards of twenty-eight thousand dollnrs!  Mr. Gallatin was next despatched to England at an expense of eighteen or twenty thousand dollars, but before he arrived the act of Parliament, depriving us erf the West India trade, had went into omration. He, of course, could do nothing, in the third year of the administration Mr. Gallatin came home, and James Barbour, Secretary of W^ar, was sent to replace him. Thus, it appears, that the last administration, before the third year of its rule had expired, paid the outfit of three Ministers Plenipotentiary and of one Chai ge d'Affaires; and what qVill pro quo did the people of the United States receive from their joint and dear bought labors? We should like to see some stickler for the superior diplomatic talents of the last administration, attempt to answer this question. If the West India trade, (as mercantile men suppose) be worth one millions of dollars to the country, by multiplying it by 4—the number of years they were in power, it will ^ive us an item of four millions of dollar, which the Coalition diplomatists ^/line^f us in a single negotiation— over the lej^t shoulder.  Estimating Mr. M'Lane's services by the  Among other arguments to prove t|»t there is no division on mere party ground, they assert (what is verjr true) tlmt matiy who are now called Democrats were once Federalists, and vice mrsa^ A man being e^ied this or that, does not make him so. A man mav call himself a Republican, but if be impend the word " natiohal" thereto, or entertain views of the powers of the government inconsistent with the well-defined creed of the Jeffersoiii-aiA Republicans, he must even be content to hp taken for a Federalist. Oq thecontrary, mny who have be^n called, and whQ called themselves federalist^ are in fact sound, wholesome Democrats. There are many such instances among our eminent men-—jDewio-cratic Free Press.  In 1800 the federalists caricatured Thoma» Jefferson—^in 1&I5, James Madison—^in 1828 and 31, Andrew Jackson. So it is evident tliat their designs are not so particularly against men, as ^inst the principles of Democracy.

The coalition have heretofore grounded their opposition to the President upon the objections which they pretended to feel to the individuals which composed his cabinet. They have asserted that the President was disposed to do as well as he knew how; but that he was brought into error by the counsels of his constitutional advisers; and have called upan him to dismiss those counsellors, and secure the confidence and approbation of a united people. The difficulty, as thev represented it, is now removed, not indeed, by the dismissal of those men, but by their voluntary withdrawal from their stationa; and now that the President is left to purinf^^e good intentions which they were so very kind as to attribute to him, what further  Pope and Halifax.—^The famous Lord Halifax, says Poj^ was rather a pretender to taste, than really possessed of it- When^ I had finished the first two or three books of ray Iliad, that Lord desired the pleasure of hearing them read at his house.

Be so gow as to mark ^ ^ace, and consider it at your leisure—I am sure you can j^ve it a little turn.
