oao The Law and the ProjiAetef-A.Miispute about pre- cedence once arose between al Bishop and a Judge, and after some altercation, the latter thought he should quite confound his. opponent by quoting the following passage : "For on these two bang all the Law and the Prophets." 'Do you not see,' said the Lawyer; in triumph, 'that even in this passage of scrip- ture we.are mentioned first?' '.I grant you,' says the Bishop, 'yoa hang first.' A Slip of the Tongue.

The Picayune thinks that this express had some connection with the arrival of Paredes, who was expected on the English steamer the following day. The editor adds : "Having just learned that the army of Gen. Scott had commenced its march, it might have been the design of the British consul to delay it by some means to give time to Pare- des to go up. This would show a more inti- mate connection vith the British government with the return of Paredes than we have a right to charge upon grounds at all equivocal. But what could have been the necessity of de- spatching a special courier on the 13th (of which we have no doubt) when the regular courier was to leave the following day 1 Ev- ery thing indicating British complicity with the return of Paredes should be investiga-ted."

The trade with the Mexican settlements has- recently been opened, and this question is of great importance to the merchants who have shipped goods to the Rio Grande.
