Newspapers. " Il is the newspaper, in one form or another, that is to mould and instruct the people of our age. Books are of use, of great use, and ihey will continue to be (he depositories of knowledge ; but the manses have, as a general thing, neither the disposition nor the time to read books. They can, however, find time to peruse daily a column or a paragraph of a newspaper, and in the course of a year such reading will not be inconsiderable in quantity." . The above remarks caught our attention as we were looking over an article in one of the reviews ii short time since, and they seem lo us lo be a briel and beautiful expression of ihe truth. The newspaper is the means by which intelligence ie conveyed, on almost every subject, to ail classes of society, and no man can lay claim lo high intelligence, respecting ihe present Stale of the world, who is not a frequent reader or some form of newspaper. There the politician goes for his information of the present stale of his ...

As to the appointment of Cabinet officers, all is as yet enveloped in mystery, with the exception of the Premier, which as slated in our last, has been settled upon the Hon. John M.

New Indian Government. The tribe of Seneca Indiana held a Convention in Erie county, N. Y., on the Cattaraugus reservation, some time since, at which they returned thanks to their white friends for the efforts they had made lo improve their condition; and requested a continuance of them.— They also abolished ihe government of their nation by chiefs, as being, inadequate lo their wants, and substituted in its place an organization fashioned after our own, with a written Constitution, a Legislative Council, a Judiciary called " Peace-makers," &c. This, we believe, is the first effort at a formal governmental organization of the few straggling Indians thai 'remain enclosed in the pale of Anglo-Saxon civilization in the old Slates of (lie Atlantic coast. The re-organization of the Cherokees, Chickalaws, and Choclaws, was made long ago, and has thus far prove'd the most MicWsslul bar to the aboriginal race.
