Amusing Initiative Scene. By far the richest and most graphic scene which baa ever taken place in any legislative" body, was that in which Mike Walsh and Bob Watson figured as priacipal aetors. 1 Bob Watson, who is a lawyer repre. sects the city of Albany in the Legislature. He is somewhat vain of his abilities and personal appearance, though withal a pretty ele.ver fellow. ? His hair being, as he lledges,ratherthin,he concluded some two weeks since to get his head shaved, and ensconced himself in a wig until a DevAHd'moreTigorous crop of the natur al developed itself.

Gentlemen say that if limiting ; '.u right to rote is resorted to it will induce candidates to bribe the voters. This was in his judgment a lame argument. If it is eo easy to bribe, could it not now be done at the polls by handing 50 cents to a voter. He did not believe that penalties of any kind were necessary.

iJitor.il Correspondence of ih Picayune. Pueiua, Mexico, June 571B47. The news from the city of Mexico is of considerable importance. The report is that Congress wUI notaccept Santa Annas resignation, all ofwhich he probably knew when he cent it in, and that he now intends to carry but his schemes in a more high-handed manner than ever. To de fend the capital he appears determined upon; but instead of adopting a concilia. tcry policy, and bringing about a union of the different parties and factions, he has sent u number of the mo?t noted officers either to prison or in exile, and by threats and abuse is endeavoring, to bring over their friends to his cause. Officers who pave their paroles at Vera Cruz or Cerro Gordo are forced into the army, or else are treated with violence and driven from, the city. All the American citizens in the capital were ordered, on the 1st inst., to leave at the expiration of twenty. four hours, either for Jalisco or Morelia, and many, were obliged fo pack...

The Iroquois River must be improved as well as the Kankakee. Both are alike necesary. The farmer in Iroquois county is entitled to a market; he as much needs one as those who cultivate the rich soil bordering on the Kankakee from the state line to -Wilmington. True, common prudence would dictate that the work as it ;goes on ' should be connected with the Canal Feeder, that th Company, and the country may derive profit from it as far up and as fast as it is completed; but this should be without any view to a stop at any point short of the termination.
