An Importunate office Seeker.
--A veteran named Thomas Herring
, who seems to be an aspirant to of-fish-al position, domiciled himself so extensively upon the premises of Gov, Letcher
, that it became necessary to hand him over to the municipal authorities.
He informed the Recorder
yesterday that he had applied to Gen. Winder
and to the Governor
for a lucrative and responsible place, but found, to his chagrin, that preference was given to those who could lay no claim to having served their country in the field.
Republics, as ever, were ungrateful.
He had received an introduction to the Governor
, but he regretted to say that that gentleman now showed no disposition to renew the acquaintance.
dismissed him with a caution against the blandishments of the whiskey bottle, whatever might be the result of his efforts to propitiate the dignitaries.
