They express themselves as highly pleased with their trip. --Alexandria Gazette. Henry M. Morfit, Esq., a native of Norfolk, Virginia, died in Baltimore a few days ago. --He had been a distinguished member of the bar in Missouri, Virginia, Maryland, and in Washington city. Major Dole, the Portland postmaster, has resigned, and one of the newspapers of that ilk say the popular salutation is, "How are you, Major, I am glad to see you out." The Secretary of the Treasury has notified seventy-five clerks of his Department that their services will be dispensed with on the 31st instant. The Hon.

It would hardly be expected, of course, that that sect, if a class may properly be called a sect, which ever counsels peace, could do less than to sustain what shall substitute a peaceful sway for that of the sword.

These petitions were stated by the Senator to be signed by
a territorial condition 'for some years,' or until certain amendments of the National Constitution have been consummated, can be made a party test, not to speak of the necessity of maintaining, under such a plan, a military organization, with all its incredible expenditures; no party could be held together in the free States, in the face of the incessant turbulence, dissatisfaction and bitterness that must spread all over the Union as a consequence of so chaotic and unsettled a policy."--Letter in the Press. Party! there's the rub. Committee on mines and mining. The Speaker of the House, in his appointment of the new committee on mines and mining, has represented the gold mines of California and Oregon, the silver mines of Nevada, the lead mines of Wisconsin and Iowa, the copper mines of Michigan, the iron and coal mines of Pennsylvania, and the iron mountain mine of Missouri.

I have seen cotton, sugar, coffee and tobacco, corn, rice, and every kind of vegetables you have in Missouri, growing to perfection; fruit of every variety that can be found on earth is to be found here; oranges, lemons, pine-apples, in fact so many varieties that this , unlike the most of Mexico, there is no irrigation here. Corn grows beautifully; plenty of timber and fine water. It is never colder here than in September in Missouri, and it is never warmer than your May weather. We have ice here, and never out of sight of snow. You will ask, how is this? I will answer, that the mountains rom their loved ones, have returned. Many come back.
