Doimestic News CONGRESSIONAL. From the Globe of Feb.the 19th. In the Senate to-day, the occupation hill passed, proviling for the settlement of Florida by- bounties or land, in small tracts, to eitizens who, going into the heart of the territory overrun by the Indians, may establish thems -lves b% expelling the enemy. and so render in military service the price of the three hundred -scres which they acquire under this new sort of pre emption.-This pre-emption paid for in ndvance, as the title can only be perfected by pie-occupancy and conquest-the con querors acquirimg a million of acres for the nation, in acquiring a hundred for them selves. It wilLbe seen by the yeas and nays,that the Federal party opposed the hill en mas se. This united opposition grew out of the preponderating Noribern influ-nce in the party. Mr. Morris, with his accusto med intrepidity; in voting with them, a vowed the motive by which they were all actuated, as ascertained in out-of-door conversation, but which...

n:f'eeli gorrpture came over. us.- We would have been glad to have received a "pitiless pelting" from her fair.hands. We were strongly tempted to throw aside our Editorial Dignity, and have a combat with the lovely maiden. Had we been out of observation, we would have given and ex changed a snow;ball, and doubtless been. vanquished by our fair enemy. Alas! a foolish sense-oY propriety came over us, and with an air of dignity, we walked away. Erpenditures of the General Gcvernment. -Our readers cannot but see from the Re port on the state of the Treasury, submit ted by Mr. Cambreleng, that the expen ditures of the government have been most lavish, and that the) are annually increas ing. Appropriations the most useless, and uncalled for, are made every session of Congress. It seems that Congress meets for little else, than to expend as much of the public money,as possible. The Whigs charge all this wasteful extravagance to the Democrats, and they to the Whigs. . Whatever party may be ...

romrae d euna Free Press. BACHELOR'S LAMENT. I've often loved but all in vain, And sought a wire midst high and low; But who cen toll the aching pain, And hear with ease a civil-No! I've tried all ways to win a bride I've walked thro' rnin and hail andenow; But when I gained the loved ocie's side, 8he kicked me with a ready-No! I never walked beneath the-charm Of beaming stars-the moon's pale glow, And asked a maid to take my-arm, Zut that her answer still was-No! I've watched her in the merry dance, Coquetting with some dashing beau; My profered hand and tender glance .Was passed by with-I thank you-No! I asked fair Laura if she'd wed, And marked her cheek's increasing glow; She gently sighed and hung her head, .Then raised her eyes and answered-No! Another who had joined the Church, And was a pious girl I know, Good Lord, she left me in the lurch, By shunning sin and saying-No! I asked a fair platonic Blue If she'd some mercy to me show; She answered it was very true She was my fr...

2W Speaker of the-nouse of Represen tatives in Congress-It is'painful to read of the indignities which were 'frquently heaped upon this high officet by members of the opposition, during the re cent session of Congress. Chatges of un fairness and partiality inl the appointment of Committees, were brought against him. by certain-, members, which ir true, should. have driven him in disgrace, from the Hall of Congress. No doubt there was much exaggeratiou in these accusations. But . ilf these csrges could be substantiated, what excse can there be, in grossly insulting sin oieer high in rank while in the discharge of. public duty? For such conduct we can see no palliation. The indignity was not only offered to the Speaker, but to the Ilouse, and to the nation. High public function aries while in the act of public duty, should have that respect which their office de mands. Though they may be unworthy themselves, their office is honorable, and demands the respectful attention of all. This ...

Ye married men! ne'er heed your wives, Or mind your children's rage, You'll ne'er feel pain for their sad lives, When you have drained my kegs!

'-7 magic of the name of regulars, they would have any advantage over ipilitia or.volun teers, until they had seen service and felt -that-disciptitie Whih time alone can give. Again, I think that this 2d section or the bill assumes sontewhat a different po. sition from that assumed by the President himself in his Messages communicated to the House. I think these Messages are pacific, and rather look to diplomatic ar rangements to settle the controversy. The President's communications on the whole subject, are executed with uncommon judgment and skill. They exhibit kidom aid prudence. Is it politic in us to do any thing that mny embarrass the position he has assumed? lie looks, and I think %vise ly looks, to negotiation. The 2d section of this bill looks to me like clothing him with power to neeotinte at the point ofihe sword? Could we bear this in a foreign Power towards us? It strikes me that its tendency may be rather to embarrass than to promote a peaceful arrangement. I regret e...

Is Mr. "I" "a graduate?" hardly: has he ever taken "music lessons?" I see no music in his prose, and not much in his head, or he would have put his ideas into verse something lik. the above. He may know something of French, but from -the taste he has displayed in his "'delicate request," one would hardly think that he ever presumed to smell a flower, much less to have turned his attention to the study of Botany. Whether lie has been to a 'drawing school or not, I am not able to judge, from the picture of courtship he has drawn in that "delicate request." He asks your "advice" whether "you think" from her many "qualifications," that the unfor tunate being -upon whom, his slim heart has lavished its affections, can boy any means, make him a "good wife?
