FRAUD UPON THE INDIANS. Ihe St. Louis Republican has taken the pains to condense, so as to give a satisfactory view, in a small space, document No. 229, published under order of Ihe last .louse of Representatives; and surely in the whole history of this administration, among the many instances of the villainoiib exercise of power, there is not one more outrageous than is here disclosed. rhe document comprises the correspondence of the department in relation to the execution of the treaty with the Winr>- -'bn..;o Indians.

Rogers the Thief. There is no little excitement in Pittsburg, at' the outrageous conduct of Porter's Prosecuting attorney, for discharging from the jail a detected THIEF; previous to his trial. The history of the case ap" pears to be this. Rogers stole some money from a man by the name of Tanner; Rogers was arrested, and the money was found hid in his coat collar.-and was at once a DETECTED THIEF. He was taken to jail, and previous to the time of his trial. Ovid F. Johnston, Porters ma. sonic prosecuting attorn?y, sent a letter to the Jailor to release this th'.ef from confinement. Rogers was a mason too, and as the present dog keeping government lt composed of 'Drunkards, rowdies, thieves and puiyvrerg, ' we suppose the services of this Rogers is needed, to fill some office.

The investi ¦ttlion. We ask of our readers, a careful and attentive perusal of the testimony taken upon the subject of the oppressed contractors. It needs no comment. The tale of tyrany, oppression and wrong, is written in letters of living light in every sentence. But a few months since, when the lazy and louzy, were discharged from the public works, the papers, of that party ware laden with moans about proscription for opinions sake. It was then the basest of nil deeds. What is it now? The contractors are not only refused work but they are robbed of their hard earnings, to enrich some cringing knave, who can succeed in getting his contracts. We did not think last fall nor do wc now think, that men were prescribed for opinions sake by the friends of Rilner, if it were so, tve would speak in the same language that is now used; anil wc cannot expect to let the enemies of the people escape. Read the testimony anil then ask yourselves whether you should like to be the victim of...

Silk There is no one thing now the talk of ie day in which we take so much interit, as in the culture of the mulberry tree, nd the making of silk. We are satisfied mt they are calculated to take a promtent place among the affairs of the fanner. low, there is perhaps more of the bubble jout it than reality, arising from an inorinatc desire for speculating upon the ;norant, rather than a wish to benefit the auntry; but it will settle down into a :aple production of this country. We vein a country where the mulberry »ree i a spontaneous growth, and we feel asiired that where nature has provided the atural food, she has also furnished a dilate calculated to the success or health I the worm. The leaf of the black or amnion mulberry, we believe is equally ood with the multicaulis. Its great disdvantagc consist in the smallncssof the :avcs, and of course the increased labo,. :i gathering.

Hav* you reduced the state debt? Their an swers must be None, none, No no! Look at the conduct ol the majority party in the House. Their whole conduct lias been but a scries of parly movements, intended solely to strengthen their power. Increase their means ot plunder—plunge the state deeper in debt—scatter her funds among the venal and corrupt—and mock with insult and contempt, the rights and petitions ofthe people. Do we misrepresent?—Look at the increase of officers, with an increase of...
