IMi'iiieiiuiuru corruption, it is notorious
that appointments to office and ull the Ad
ministration patronage have been conferr
ed only upon those who were supposed to
be the most servile aud sycophantic in their
natures. None of the European ikspotisms
require more abject submission to the will
of the Central Authority than Mr. B:irh-
anuns Administration lias required from
Hut piisslng by the manner iu which the
appointing power has been used to fill th
federal offices with tools and toadies, we
mm even more serious charges mude against
the Administration. Contracts, it ia tnid,
have been awarded improperly to favorites
and money has been used to influence
votes in Congress. The press, olso, has
been tampered with, and venal journals
and venal editors have received the favor
of the Administration, while those too hon

was due, havo been the objects of its bit
As an illustration of tho means resorted
to for the purpose or winning snnnort und
conciliating opponents, w e may refer to the
evidence, as reported by Washington cor
respondents, given a few days ago before
the Covode Committee by Mr. David
Webster of Philadelphia. Mr. Webster
testified that in 1853 he had a corrcsuond-
ence with Attorney General Black, who
desired to restore amicable relations be
tween the President and J. W. Forney
In an interview with the Attorney Gener
al, Mr. Webster was authorized to propose
to Mr. Forney that ir he would change his
policy .d support the Administration,
he shonld have the Driutimr of th. n...
office blanks; a job, tho profits ofwl.ich
would, it was estimated, amount tn in .

upproiiching the lintel or Mr. Postlewuit's

hands. Wheu the little ones hud nearly
reached Mr. Postlewalt's house, in front
of wliich some persons were seated, it was
observed that the children were currying a
live rattlesnake, about two and a hulffoet
in length. Fritz, the little bey, hud hold of
tl.e reptile in the middle, the head and h.it
lliiiiginj by the child's feet, and th lit Hp
girl had hold of Fritz's wrist, assisting him
to curry his poisonous burden. One orthe
persons who had been witnessing this drend
inspiring sight, uttered un exclamation of
norror, w Hereupon the little boy dropped
tho scrp. nt. The reptilo immediately coil
