The United States and 31a cedonian. AN INTERESTING SKETCH. The subjoined authentic account of the battle between the United States frigate and the British frigate Macedonian, was written by an old sailor, an Englishman, who was a boy on the British ship at the time of the battle. His name is Samuel Leech, and his sinlple, truthful narrative, possesses a greater degree of interest than the more labored, efforts of professional authors. The Sabbath came, and brought with it a stiff breeze. We usually made a sort of holiday of this sacred day. . After breakfast, it was common to muster the ,entire crew on the spar deck, sometimes in blue jackets and white Irowsers, or blue jackets and blue trowsers ; and at other limes in blue jackels, scarlet vests^ and blue or white trowsers, with our bright anchor buttons glancing in the sun, and our black, glossy hats, ornamented with black ribbons, and the name of our ship painted on them. After muster we frequently had church service read b...

How Washington was made Commander In Chief.- From Works of John Adams. Every post brought me letters from my friends, Dr. Winlhrop, Dr. Cooper, Gen. Jas. Wnrrcn, and sometimes from Gen. Ward and his aids, and Gen. Healh and many others, urging, ia pathetic terms, the impossibility of keeping their men^ together, without the assistance of Congress. I was daily urging all these things, but we were embarrassed with more than difficulty, not' only with the parly in favor of "the petition to the king, and the party who were jealous of independence, but a third party, which was a Southern parly. against a Northern, and a jealousy against a New England army under the command of a New England General. Whether this jealousy was sincere, or whether it was mere pride and a haughty ambition of furnishing a southern onneral to command the northern army (I cannot say,) but the intention was very visible to me that Col. Washington was their object, and so many of our staunches! men were ...

Yankee Trick on aHoosierLaudlord. In qdite a Utile Ohio village, many years ago, there was a tavern where the slages always changed, and the passengers expected to get breakfast. The landlord of said hotel was noted for his tricks upon travelers, who' were allowed toget fairly seated at the table, when the driver would blow his horn (afler; taking his horns,) and sing out," Stage ready, gentlemen," whereupon the passengers were obliged to hurry out and take their seats, leaving a scarcely tasted .breakfast behind them, for which, however, they had to fork over fifty cents! One day when the stage was approaching the house of this obliging host, a passenger said that he had often heard of the landlord's trick, and he was afraid they would not be able to get any breakfast. " What ? how ? No breakfast!" ex claimed Ihe rest." . „x - ,, "Exactly so, gents, and you may as well keep your seats and tin." " Don't they expect.passengers to breakfast?"

Onr State Administration. A correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer thus sketches some of the -features of-our State Administration, which have rendered Gov. Johnston so popular with the mass of the people : Governpr Johnston will probably be the candidate jOf the Whig parly at the next gubernatorial: election-—from present evidences he will be nominated by acclamation —the Whig press is largely in his favor, while the locofoco organs are' ominously silent. In this event, a brief recapitulation of the policy of the present Executive will be right and proper. , As a fit prelude, it may be worth mentioning that the present Democratic State Treasurer, Gen. Bickel, admits lhat, lire Sinking Fund, as it exists under, the auspices of Governor Johnston, will gradually liquidate and cancel the enormousj State debt. This fact nlpne should command the support of every rightthinking man in ihe Commonwealth. - More than half a million of the actual State debt has been paid during the p...
