Our readers will recollect that, during the controversies relating to tbo Lecompton cod stitutional question, frauds of the grossest hind were alleged to have been perpetrated in several of the election precincts of Kaunas, the most noted of which, perhaps, were those of Oxford, in the county of Johnson, where 1628 votes, as indicated by the fraudulent re turns, were cast, whilst according to the cen sus taken afterwards there were only forty- thrtt rotes fn the district. Tho charges of lraud, although originating with men of distinction and high character, were at the time sedulously denied by the friends of the .National Administration, which was using its influence and its patronage to force the ob noxious constitution upon a protesting people The truth of these charges is now, however, being established in such a manner as should remove all doubts from the mind of ...

How man j perions wboia we associate with 1n our every day walk of life,- lire, or laocy their existence depends entirely upon the smiles or approbation of a certain class of peo ple whose chief pnnmit of happiness in this world would scon convince the most noted sceptic that earth and nothing else formed the material of their creation. Yet like third rate actor in a one horse theatre, they oftener play to empty benches than an intelligent au dience. " If, perchance, an opportunity for doing a kindness presents itself, they most invariably cast a look over their shoulder to see whether there are any to censure or approve ; and while engaged in ascertaining that fact, should the "still small voice" speak loader for compas sion, they turn abruptly, but only to find the object of pity has vanished. Thus an oppor tunity for assisting the needy, as well as strengthening the better feelings of the donor, . which, perhaps, have long lain d...

When there's something that these may comand ? There in food to be won from the furrow, And forests that wait to be hewn, There is marble untouched by the chisel !

Mr. Lorriaux, who has bees ior some time laboring for the spiritnal benefit of the French population of Boston, designed to awaken the sympathy and call forth the benev olence cf the American people in behalf of a large number of pious, frugal, and industrious YYaldenses, anxious to emigrate to this land of civil and religions liberty. The reasons given for this desire, were the limited territory to which they are confined at home ; the sterility of the soil ; the prospect of continuous pover ty to themselves and their descendants ; the excessive taxation ; the constant attacks upon tneir noiy religion and the annoyance to which they are exposed from a Jesuitical and Inquisitorial priesthood.

Oar readers no doubt all recollect how vig orously Mr. Buchanan, in Lis famous Duquesne letter, inveighed against the use or money to carry elections, and that he was wonderfully exercised lest "public virtue" should bo "cor rupted" and "the people" become "renal." We were somewhat at a loss at that time to know what motive could have actuated the President to write that letter, but we now be gin to think that it was the "knawings of con science," and that be tnubt have had in his mind such facts as the one we mentioned last week, brought to light by the Naval Investi gating Committee, namely, that a man who has secured fat contracts for live-oak timber. paid to the Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee, in 18-jO, about $16,000 to secure the election of this same pure, upright, cor ruption-detesting James Buchanan.
