SPIRIT OF THE PRESS.The Penny Post ha* a leader on "France, Eng-

land and the United State*,- ' commencing with anallusion to therecent remark of Lord Clarendon,which it aay*, evidently implies a determination onthe part of the Western Power*, to interfere in theaffair* of this continent, and to prevent, a* far astheycan, the farther extension of the limit* of thiscountry. The Pott deplore* the infatuation whichcould have called forth this remark, for to thela*tdegree is it impolitic and un*afe in these Power*to add another to their already formidable enemies?to convert into active hatred the good wishes Ofa great and powerful nation. We quote the con-cludingparagraph:

It is time, we seriously think, for Congress tocall forth the immense naval resources at our com-mand, or at least a portion of them. The expensemaybe very grrat, but it may save us from spolia-tion in thebeginning, and from war afterwaras.

In another article the Post animadverts with se-verity upon the members of the present Legislatureot Virginia, characterizing them, as a body, byexcessively hard names.

The Examiner devotes a leader to the DiplomaticClothes controversy; characterizes the order of MrMarcy as "a silly piece of puritanism," and showsthat by carrying out the wishes of the Secretary,ourMinisters are daily subjitcted to humiliating?lights, and cut off from all social intercourse withtbeir diplomatic brethren. We observe anotherarticle on the adjournmentof the Legislature. Itassumes that no good has been accomplished bythat body, and hence its demise will be a source ofnot much grief to the people.

The Eraminer in another article draws its swordin defeßce of the anti-razor movement?sees noreason why we should daily defile ourbeards, raspthem away, mix them ignominieusly with soapsuds, and cast them off with the sweepings of thehouse?and cite \u25a0asproper examplarsthe "beardedphilosophers of Greece." Does not go in for eccen*

tricities, or ludicrous excessesin mustachc, goatees,imperials and whiskers; but advocates decent, welltrimmed, neatly cutarticles, such as any gentlemancan wear with impunity.

The Enquirer advocates thebill making an ap-prop nation of $00,000 for the completion of thetidewater connection. Another article call* uponthe Senate to givethe " finishingblow to the shin-plaster nuieance." Another alludes to evidenceproduced bythe N. Y. Tribune to show that Mr*Jefierson objected to the exclusion of slavery fromthe State of Ohio. The Enrjuriersays:

The evidence consists of the testimony of Gover-nor Morrow and Governor Worthiueton, whostate that President Jefferson expressed to themthe opinionthat the clause in the constitution ofOhio prohibitingslavery was inexpedient. It thusappears that Jefferson Baw reason to abandon theprinciple ofthe ordinance of'B7. and to modify hisearlier views of the policy of slavery extension.?This development accords with the opinion whichwe have always entertained, thatthe convictions ofMr. Jelferson, in regard to thejustice aud policyofnegro slavery underwent, inlater life, an importantmodification.

The Whig alludes to an article in the LondonTimes, on a subject which is now attracting muchattention in England, to wit : the evils to the publiclrom the appointmentto office of incompetent per-sons on account ofparty or personal favoritism.?The presentMinistrypropose as far as possible toabolish the present system, and constitute merit thesole test of fitness for office. A Board of examinersis to be established, whose duty it 6hall be to makea fair and impartial investigation of the qualifica-tions o( the various applicants, and award the prizeto the most deserving. The Whig thinks this exam-ple might be properly followed by the AmericanRepublic. The reform, however,mustcome fromthe people, who can, if they will, unite to protectthemselves from a horde of officials, who will, un-less they make the exertion, eat them out of houseand home.

The Mail alludes to the denunciation of the Le-gislature, so freely indulgedin by the Tress; doesnot desire anexclusiveprivilege of denunciation it-self, nor Lbb it practiced upon any such principle;its design has been to act justly and impartially towards all in speaking ot the Legislature; and at-tributes the failure of that body to fulfil those acts,which amajority of the people wished to see ac.complished, chiefly to sectional feeling and a desirefor local benefits, correspondent and correlativewith designs of a moregeneral character. Unlessthis feeling canbe done away with, theprogress ofthe State in commercial greatnessmust beretardedin a most disastrous degree.

A Cruel Mother.?An inquestwas held atBel.levue Hospital, New York, a day or two since, uponthe body of CatherineReburg, a girl 14 years of aje,who died from disease brought on, as is alleged,by cruelty and almost unheard of punishmentandbarbarity at the hands of her mother. The juryrendered averdict in accordance with this allega-tion, and the mother, Bridget Williams, alias Re-burg, was arrested and committed for examina-tion.

The Aborigines.?The Washington Star in-forms us that the fourteen Indiana who are now inWashington for the purpose of treating with thethe IndianBureau for the sale of their lands, hadan interview with the Commissioneron Thursday.There waa no business transacted, although sere,ral of thered men made speeches?one of whom,tie ' Medicine Hawk," attributed to the Presidentthe fine atate oftne long road they had travelled toWashington, and said hi* power must be like thatof the Supreme Being.

The Kidnapper.?The Washington Bt»r, al-ludingto the unsuccessful result of officer Barna-clo's visit* toRichmond.for thepurpose ofobtainingpossession of Thompson, thekidnapper, say*:

We understand that the authorities there con-tend that the requisition should come from thePresident, who, they *ay, ia Governor of the Dis-trict ot Columbia. If we mistake not, there i* onfile at that place a requisition lor a colored mannamed Herbert, wh'ch is from Judge Cranch, andwas made in 1845. Ifit was unnecessary then forthe Preaident to make the requisition, why should itbe nccessary now?

HeavyFreshet ?We learn from the Wilming-ton Journal that there was a greatrise in the Con-garee river last Tuesday morning. Some 200 yard*of the South Carolina Railroad had been washedaway, and it was feared that further damage wouldensue. Great fears were entertained for the safetyof the Wateree trestle-work on the Manchesterroad.

A large force pro-cecded at once to repair the breach, and the carsare now but little behind the usual runninertime.

The Herald furnishes thefollowing items:There-construction of a span of Chatham Bridge,that had been swept away by the flood, was com-menced on Wednesday morning and completedThursday evening?a commendable degree of dis-patch.The late heavy rain and flood has had a seriouseflject ona good deal of wheat in various quarters,bywashing it out, exposing theroots, <fcc.The "flood of waters" cut it* oft'for a time fromourusual supplies of fresh fish from the Potomac.?
