EDITORIAL BRETITIES. Appointment by tiie Governor.—Samuel A. GiLMonE, of Butler, (Pa.) to be President Judge for the district composed of Fayette, Washington, and Greene counties. ! 07* We are indebted to Senator Dir, of New York, for a pamphlet copy of his able speech on the war with Mexico, delivered in the Senate on the 2Gth ultimo, I ' - Washington, February 10. The President gave a dinner party to-day, which was attended by Mr. Clay and a large number of members of Congress, without distinction of party. Nearly every State in the Union was represented. That' s a Fact.—ABritish journal, in commenting on the recent acquisitions -of the United States on the side of Mexico, says—;1 Looking to our first occupation of Eastern India, and our progress there, afterwards, the less we say on the subject of the similar occupation by-our American brethren of Western India the better." &J- The London Times is displeased with President Polk' s course in regard to the Mexican War...

Whilst we do not ourielvos avow any preference, we wish our friends to understand, that our columns are open to tho discuwlon of the merits of all the aspirants. To-Day is the nnniversary of the birth of the Father of our Country—the immortal WASHINGTON—of whom a renowned Orator of a foreign land beautifully and truthfully said: " No clime can claim, no country can appropriate him, the boon of Providence to the human race, whose fame is eternity, whose residence creation—in whose production it does really appear as if nature was endeavoring to improve upon herself.

Another Mexican Apologist. William F. Johsbtok, the erratic conservative Senator from Armstrong, who has played £o many "fantastic tricks" in politics, has proposed a aeries of resolutions to the State Senate, in which, among other apologetic references to Mexico, it it roundly affirmed that "tho war might havt ban avoided by a more careful and forbearing course of policy on the part of our national rulers." | Tho gloom of midnight ta'nftt more opposed to the broad glare of noonday, than is thli affirmation opposed to tho facts.. Stripped of oil disguiucfl, it dimply mean*, that the United Smtos is the aggrading and Mexico tho aggrieved party—and that for the blood and money expended in tho proHecution of tho war, not tho besotted military adyenturora of Mexico, butu wr ruler*" nro to be heljl reiponsible.

. , For the Lancaster Intelligencer. Canal Commissioner. THis question is beginning to occupy, very generally, the public " mind. The President of the Canal Board has but one more year to serve: it isr therefore, important that the people should inquire as to-the Democrat to succeed toi this important trust. Col. HENRY C. EYER, formerly a highly popular member of the . State Senate,'from the-15th district—in my opinion is the proper man. Few men in Pennsylvania enjoy a more enviable reputation than Col. E yer. His business qualifications are eminentl y great. One of the largest farmers in the interior of the State, Colonel Eyer is therefore among the. largest tax-payers in Pennsylvania. It is proper to remark, that the farming interest of our noble State is at this-time broadly connected with the financial operations of the government. It is to this great and controlling, branch of industrial operation—it is to the producing clasies that Pennsylvania must'now look to .redeem h...

The Weather. ' It is questionable whether the recollection of the "oldest inhabitant" extends to a winter so remarkable for its mildness as the present. Old [Father Time seems to have literally abjured the customs that have distinguished him from infancy,1 and to have surrendered himself to the most inexplicable eccentricities. Either such is* true'pf old Time, or we are shifted into strange latitudes, for on no other hypothesis can we account -fur the extraordinary mildness of the season. Many of our young friends indulge the pleasing hope, that it is not yet too late for old Greybeard to vouchsafe the accustomed quantum of snow and sport, with the consequent cheerful ring i of the sleigh-bell, the merry &ugh of the sleighing-belle, and all the wonted gaiety of Winter. Th^y have not yet relinquished the expectation, that there will be a sufficiency of Ice to cause present fears: to slide from the - memory—that skates will not be voted wholly a superfluity, but may fin...

Value of Newspapers. From an excellent and highly classick address, delivered several years ago, before the alumni of Hamilton College,'(N. Y.) by the Hon. Lewis Cass, we make the following choice extract: " The wish of Archimides is realized, and a place is found where the world can be moved. Only a century and a half has passed away since the introduction of newspapers, and during many years their progress ' was slow and doubtful. In their infancy, there was little to commend them to public regard. They were chronicles of passing events, recording every thing with equal gravity, whether trifling or important. There were no enlarged views, no interesting speculations, no elaborate discussions, political or statistical. But as, they attained maturity, their character gradually changed, and they became, what they now are\ the repositories of all that is important in the progress of human affairs, and of much that is valuable in science and literature. Their duration is now beyo...

For the Intelligencer. Canal Commissioner. As the time is approaching when another candidate is to be nominated for the office of Canal Commissioner, permit me to direct the attention of the Democracy to a gentleman , whose claims chaL ¦ lenge the support of every Democrat. I refer to * JOHN NILL, Esq., of Franklin county. Mr. N. is a gentleman of intelligence, and of unquestionable integrity. Beared in the school of Democracy, he has ever been a steadfast and consistent supporter of its men and measures. I know of no one in the interior of the State, who has rendered mare efficient service to his party. Mr. N. has held the office of Collector on the public. works for several years, but declined a reappointjnent this winter, thereby proving that he not onl y preaches rotation in office, but is willing to reduce it to practice. He is a thorough .friend; of the National and State Administrations , and would, y elected, make an efficient and faithful Commissioner, If the State Co...

For the Intelligencer. Canal Commissioner. Amongithe. Democratic candidates for Canal Commissioner, to be nominated by the coming 4th of March Convention, no one stands so deservedly prominent as WILLIAM BEATTY of Butler county. The writer of this communication has known Mr. Beatty for many years asa prominent, ictive, and unwavering Democrat.

For Hie Lancaster Intelligencer. Canal Commissioner. SAMUEL HOLMAN, of Dauphin county, is in every respect a most suitable person for the office of Canal Commissioner. He is an architect and engineer, and familiar with the details both of conJ struction and repair of the public works. He has distinguished himself as a man of great energy and skill, by the construction of many of the finest bridges on the waters of the Susquehanna. Since the Board of Canal Commissioners became elective, be had charge for several years as superintendent of the Canal from Columbia to the Ikfil-Ierstown dam on the Juniata, and faithfully and laboriously performed the duties of that appointment. He is just such a man as the Democratic party desire to entrust with public affairs. His superior qualifications for Canal Commissidner, strongly recommend him to the approaching convention. As a Democrat he has been unwavering and uncompromising. He is both "honest and capable.'1 CERRO GORDO.

Ttic Ice Crop. • As Boston is thegreat ice market, not merely ot the Union, but of the world, the following paragraph from the Transcript of that city will be read with interest: Theffce harvesters at Fresh Pond have not yet begun, to gather in their crop. They are waiting for the ice to grow a little more. It is estimated that the ice gains an inch in thickness every twenty-ibur hours in weather like the present. The Boston Traveller has the following paragraph : The Ice Crop.—The present cold weather is favorable to the ice dealer, but lost time cannot he regained. It is the usual practice for ice dealers to ship all the ice possible, previous to filling up their houses here. A'large ice dealer stated a day or two since, that up to this time last year one hundred and twenty-one vessels had been freighted with ice at this port, for the yariouB ice warehouses at the south and For foreign ports.

HAjntosn, deceased, was on Tuesday last rejertcd by the U. S. Senate.. Col. Piollet is well known in this ' State, as an active and intelligent Democrat, having served several sessions as a representative from Bradford connty in the State Legislature. We know him well, and are at a loss to' conjecture a single good reason for his rejection. His advocacy of the '; Wilmot Proviso'1 was .-not-to our liking, to be sure, but how this served to disqualify him frotu exercising the duties of Paymast^i; in the army,"vve do not exactly comprehend..

He also alluded to the difficulty he had with the President when he was Speaker of the House of Representatives , and acknowledged himself in the wrong.
