The passage of the Jamestown was so short from this country that the cttyicame mgb being taken by surprise We learn that the appearance before the city caused great excitement among the forces of the enemy and tbat «Rear Admiral Sir H,.

Who Shall a|>ply thc.Renedv! A correspondent in our paper ov;rthe signature of " Priendsville, has strangely enough discovered tbat there- has been injustice, in the distribution of offices i i this county.

I Our correspondent, in the honesty bf his heart, has overlooked an important f mature in tins matter. He forgets tbat the" sterling Democrats, the tax-payers" generally, have latterly had but Iktle to do with thii business of making officers.

From: the Picayune. LATER FROM MEXICO. Jai.apa, Mexico, May 11, 6 o'clock P. M: Since the the diligencia went out at noon to-day for Vera Cruz, another diligencia has come in from the city of Mexico full of passengers, and bringing news of not a little importance. Among the passengers was Mr. Kennedy, who after being badly treated here about the first of April, was driven to the city of Mexico. All the passengers confirm what I wrote you jthis morning. They say that at the capital there was no Government, no order, no responsibility—all was anarchy. Anayn was still President pro tern, but had neither influence nor authority. A new President is to be elected on the lotb of the present mouth—the tenth Chief Magistrate this distracted country has hud within the last eighteen months. I cannot stop to count them up, but such is the fact. The hidrones—guerrillas I suppose they should be called now—are busily at work upon the roads, especially between Puebla and the; city of Mexico. ...

The story is thus given by a Chinese historian. " Dnrma, the sou of an Indian king, is said to have landed in China in the year 510 of the Cristian era. He employed all his care and time to spread through the country a knowledge of God and ^religion, and to stimulate others by his example, imposed oirhunsell privations of every kind, living in the open air in fasting and prayer. On one occasion being worn out with fatigue, he fell asleep against his will, and that he mijjht there fore observe bis oath, which he had thus violated, he cut off his eye-lids, and tljrew, them on the ground.
