HA¥ MAKING TVhy not adopt the same rule in regard to tho time of cutting clover and (grass for hay, that is .followed in cutting- medicinal herbd? The objeht in both cases i« tosecujne the intrinsic virtues of the plant. In curing herbs, as ulhujo acquaintqd with the subject admit, the jnost proper time for cutting is when dicj] are ill full bloqtn; and it is also admitted that they should be cured in the shade, because if exposed to tlie; more direct influence of. the sun and air, some of their valuable properties would he evaporated.

Foreigners.

If any more prdof were needed to falsify the villainous charges that, have for so many years been heaped upon our naturalized foreign po'pulationj the recent enrolments under the act of Cpngress, would set them at rest forever. I Recent events have shown that our Irish, German and French population are not behind their nnjtive brethren, in answering the cafl of their co;untry. In the Slate of Georgia, the only company of volunteers, we believe, that have left for the seat of war, are Irislj Jasper Greens.

Letters have been-received at! the Navy Department from Monterey, bearing as late a date as April 18th.— Union. The unwarranted attempt to drive Capt Fremont from the country has already been alluded to in the newspapers. After having been ordered away by Don Jqse Castro, commandant general, Capt. F. expecting an attack fortified himself about twelve leagues distant from Monterey. Castro assembled aliout 100 men in front of the entrenchment. After remaining there three days, lie concluded to treat, when it was discovered that the party had quiedy gone off, Waving some old saddles and trash which the (palifornians magnified into munitions of war. Three hundred riflemen offered their services to Capt. F. but they were declined. The movement against Capt. Fremont seems, to have been directed by the central government of Mexico; but it is hot believed that tlie people of California entertained any ill will towards him, or would willingly have done him harm. His own conduct in die whol...
