A number of the citizens of ourborough

- was made known, telling them thit it was
disregarded. The 'members who opposed
the measure from. the beginning are not to
be• censured; those who'bolled must bear
the blame of duping the citizens. We'
'know not who they , are. ' Good has conic

in the otfice,•we stepped in and united with
Theta- in masticating the luscious gift. t.
We ate, and the Thought of former 'day(
was revived in our mind. We remember:
ed that she, of whose largess we were then
.partaking, had more than once lavished
upon us her- kindness ;that when sickness
laid us low, our lot among *strangers, she

trzpThe communication of "Lycurgus"
has been crowded out, but shall appear
"A micUs"- is under consideration.
A. writer. in 'the' New York American
gives* somewhat humorous, though per
haps just, view of the.change in : the aspect .
of political affairs. The. Whigs have gen
something.better to do than an eter
nal' eflort-to keep up the steam of party,
and he thus characterizes - them :.
The great triumph in 1.840, of the Whig
party, was simply the-fritimph of a large
portion of 'good citizens-over a . bad admin
istration.. Having accomplished that end,
they retire to their farms and workshops,
and abandon party control and party agrati
dizetnent. They , did not fight for that ;
they aim ply .rose in their strength to rebuke
and abate an evil: When those' evils re
cur,, no matter by what name the-Party in
power then niay he called, the same good
citizens will again rise ih Weir power, and
rebuke and. abate that evil, and then, as tie r
fore, retire from the conflict. It is like .a
man getting up at night to drive ottuoisy
eats that may . have assembled under his
window . . He gives. thorn a "peppering".
without killing any, and then retires,,to his,
quiet roam. He .don't feel himself called
upon to sit up all night for another shot;
but of one thing. the cats marb6.sure, that,
as often as they re-assemble for leautor-.
wan!, they will get another peppering, but
so long as ''they , assemble and keep . the
peace, he' will not disturb them.

It, vvill be seen by our Annapolis letter that

'The. Philadelphia Inquirer of Ainday
has the following notice of the recently
discovered forgery case. in Philadelphia.
—The recent affidavit of. Mr. John- M.
Riddle has thrown a nor':light upon the
character of Mr. 'Cheyney Hickman, - who
sometime since figured as a Director of the
UnttedStates Bah k. Mr. Riddle_has, made
affidavit, that he never endorsed certain
ney Hickman, for More than $100,000;
and that consequently such notes, io far' as
relates:to his' endorsements are furgeries.- ,
This Hickman was originally appointed a
Director of the United States Bank by
General 'Jackson, and was them re-elected
from yer to year on general ticket by
the stockholderS., He • was apparently a
dull, illiterate man, with little or no am
bition, good-natured and limited in .his
views and aspirations. No one would ev
er have dreamed of him as a forger. He
kept aleather store in .Chesnut street above
Third, not a great while ago; but subse- -
quently. moved into Front street, took - a
largeatore and becaMe a shipping merchant.
He flourished there for a year or two, vis-.
Red the Exchange-regularly every day, and
talked freely and cooly of the ups and dowi4
in the Stock -of -the Bank of the United
:States. Indeed,. he was rather looked upon
as.a mere makeweight in . the Board of Di
rectors and not likely to have the least in
fluence in any question. . .
That such an apparent blockhead should,
with success have committed forgeries to
such an.immense moue:, is really calcula
ted to startle. It was understood; however,
some 'weeks before he left the 'city for
South America, that he had made improper
use of the names of several of our citizentq,
that is,that lie had forged them as endorsers,
but contrived to save them from harm by
taking up the notes. He made his escape
in good time. This Riddle business'. has
unravelled his character to an extent really
strange to those who used to regard. him as
soft, good-natured cat's paw.
THE BUSINESS OF 00NORESS.—We wish
we were able to inforin our renders that the
business of Congress is .going on either
smoothly or. rapidly. But,, on the contra
ry, no progress stall, to speak of, has been
made in - it this week ; and the proceedings'
in the House of Representatives at least,
have been.any thing but , hartnonions. The
subject which-most urgently requires the
attention of that body—the actual state of
the -- Treasury=bas not yet received
thougk r a bill for the purpose wae . reported
a week ago., The necessary consequence
of neglecting to act on the bill for changing
the terms of the ituthorixed,LOin, of which
it is known' not more than one half -was
taken, has'been to reqUire the introduction
of -a . bill yesterday, by the Committee -- of
Ways and Means. to authorize a -re-issue
of the TrensUry Notes to a sufficient
amount to meet the dettlands . upon tire.
