In Aug- usrj 1835, there were 4000 applications for office nt New York, or 0 applicants for cnch office. If the same proportion ex- isfs elsewhere, the office holders would represent nearly men en- gaged in promoting the success of their party, with the hopoof obtaining office. Double this number, arid you have an army of men, actively engaged in the corruptions of partizun political warfare.

John Adams wtis at one time called upon by some one to contribute to for- cign missions, when he abruptly ans- wered: 'I have nothing to give to that pur- pose; there are here in this vicinity six ministers, not one of whom will preach in each other's pulpit. Now I will contrib- ute as much and more than any one else, to civilize these six clergymen.' 'Don't stand there said a professor at Cambridge to three students, standing where they shouldn't.

Mr. Darnell has arrived at Washington, from Texas as a special messenger, charged by President Jones with the du- ty of bringing a copy of the Constitution of the new State. A singular movement is mentioned in the Western Ln. Democrat as having oc- curred in the Plaisance settlement, in the western part of the state. Six plan- tations there have been suddenly aban- doned by their owners, who have made their way with what goods and chattels they could carry with to Texas, escorted by nn armed band of Texans. Tho Jeffcrsonian says these people hare been ruined by paper money banks. TUB ENGLISH HOUSE or London Punch gives the following sketch of a scene in tho house of Peers: Lord Campbell was beginning to ad- dress the house, Lord Brougham interfered. A Noble Lord thought it would be as well to hear what Lord Campbell had to say. Lord Brougham did not care what any ono thought. Lord Campbell: Why, you have spoken twice already. Lord Brougham: Well! and how many times would you have spoken if you ccutld? Lord Wharncliffe: There is nothing before the hoose, and this is irregular. Lord Brougham: What's I know I regularly interrupted when- ever I get up; and if "there's no motion, what's that to me? Its for the noble lord himself who comp'ains to propose one. Lord Campbell: I arose for the pur- Lord Brougham: Of course you did but any purpose may be no Lord Campbell: Really I must appeal to the noble lord on the Woolsack, wheth- Lord Brougham: Who prevents you from'apponlingtothe Woolsack? I can do that myself, if that's nil. Lord Campbell: I really have reason to complain of the very gross and extraor- dinary Lord Brougham Why, you've com- plained three timps already. If you're going to speak ngain, you had better let us have something in the shape of a mo- tion. The Lord Chancellor: If the noble has a motion to submit, he is quite in order but if not, I think his proceedings to make any further observa- tion would be irregular. The Duke of Wellington: I have list- ened to this conversation with some atten- tion, and I do not my opin- ion as an old member of this house; that there's much to be gained bv it. Lord Campbell; I was only going to Lord Brougham: But you can't say it. Make your motion Lord Campbell then moved that tho house adjourn, which was carried, and their lordships broke up.
