Bye FOR CASII.-A cotemporary says if we
would get rich, we must not Carry pass-hooks.
Credit is the tempter in a new shape. Buy
dry goods on trust, and you will purchase a
thousand articles that Cash would never have
dreamed of. A dollar in the hand looks lar
ger than ten dollars seen through the perspec.
tire of a sixty day due bill. Cash is practical,
while Credit takes horribly to taste and ro
mance. Let Cash buy a dinner, and you will
have beefstake flanked with onions. Send
Credit to market, and he will return with eight
pairs of woodcocks and a peck of mushrooms
Credit believes in double breasted pins and
champagne suppers. Cash is more easily
satisfied. Give him three meals a day, and
he don't care much if two of them are made
up of roasted potatoes and a little dirty salt.
Cash is a good adviser, while Credit is the best
fellow to be on visiting terms with. If you
want double chins and contentment, do bassi
nets with Cash.

division thereof, will be received at the office of
the Secretary of the Commonwealth until Mon
day, the first day of January next. The pro
posals must state distinctly whether the bid is

BERMUDA AND CUBA. -An important item of
sews by the Canada is; that Lord Paltnerston
has gone to Paris, to consult on some plan of
action to be taken conjointly with France, in
case the United States should persist in acqui
ring the island of Cuba. If these two nations
intend to ally themselves, as intermeddlers in
the affairs or the entire world, they still have
their hands full ! As for Lord Palmerston, he
will soon find out that .‘young America" is be
ginning to have serious thoughts as to the pol
icy of permitting the British to occupy Bermu
da, a point which commands the entire Atlan
tic coast of our country. They may be served
with a notice to quit, at the same time we pur

•` 'We believe the conviction is universal that

been in so critical a condition since the great
overthrow or 1840. The ranks of the enemy
are largely recruited from a variety of sources,
and, what is worse, our own strength is seri•

and that he has accepted the office. In our
opinion, a more judicious and advantageous

justify the confidence placed in the judgment
of Guy. Pollock by the people of Pennsylvania.

gerNEwscsrens, of all shades of politica

generally in the necessity of abolishing the
Canal Board. The Republican, of this be
rough, with no more sincerity than plausibility,
suggests that the Whigs are disposed to adopt
this plan, not for the purpose of effecting a sale,
but for the opposite purpose of retaining the
political power springing from the immense
patronage of the Board, and the disbursement
of millions of the public funds.
Such suggestions are wholly unfounded. In
the first place, Whigs are generally ofthe opin

of breaking down the Democratic party by the
universal disgust with which the conduct of the
Canal Board has been regarded. Iu the nex t

Canal Board, Whose interest it is to thwart such
arrange:netts, must be got out of the way.

hands of a "commission for the sale of the
Public Works," consisting of three or five of
the best business men in the State. and make
it their duty to dispose of the same at the ear

VEGETABLE SERPENT.—ACCOrding to BOMB
Italian journals, a new organized being has
been discovered in the interior of Africa, which
seems to form an immediate link between re.
getable and animal life. This singular pro.
duction of nature has the shape of a spotted
serpent. It drags itself along the groucd ; in.
stead of a head, has a flower shaped like a bell,
which contains a vicious liquid. Flies, and
other insects, attracted by the smell of the juice,
enter into the flower, where they are caught by
the adhesive matter. The flower then closes
and remains shut till the prisoner are bruised
and transtbrmed into chyle. The indigestible
portions, such as the head and wings, are
thrown out by two aspired openings. The ve •
getable serpent has a skin resembling leaves,
white and soft flesh, and instead of a bony skel
eton, a cartilaginous frame filled with yellow
matter. The natives cosider it delicious food.
