BURLINGTON TREE PRESS, FR1D AY MOOTING, NOVEMBER 13, 184G. FREE PRESS, HUUMNGTON, VI. I'RIDAY.MOIlXlXlJ, XOVn.MDKK 13 IS 16. The Administration. Wo do not believe tliat any Administration of our (iovi'rmiif nt ever ran so "swiftly In destruc tion " as tlmtor.dMM K. I'M. After a little inure than eighteen months of public Soricc,it has lost nearly every supporter it hail north of .Mas-oil mill Dixon's line Maine. Xew Hamp shire, Pontisylvuni i ami Xew York ! b'o sudden ami wide-spread a defection is almost without a pir.tllcl. It ijtliojust,and we would he pl.ul to Ic uble to say it is always the sure, reward of polit ical knavery and deception. .Mr. Polk came in to power by meant of the most flagitious and liare-laccd Iratid;', and we verily believe lie will go out w ith a reputation for Statesmanship and Btatestnanlikcability as small as were his expec tation" of receiving the nomination for tho I 'res iliency fifteen minutes before lie heard of it. His career, thus far, has been signalized by a se ries of public measure?, and by a course of policy, which are oHln-dve to the moral sense, and des tructive to the interests, of a vast majority of the American People. The U'nr into which he has plunged tho Country, against a feeble and disor ganized neighboring Ifepublic, has ceased to awaken eiithusiaui een in the Slave States fur whoso exclusive adiantage it was undertaken. The gallantry and skill of our little Army, (sent noon an o.iedition in our judgment as intrinsic ally absurd n wn that of Don Quixolto against the wind mills,) are the only considerations that prevent this war Iroin being every way utterly ih-gracefiil to the American name. There is not one other ennobling or redeeming feature about it. It appeals in no other respect to our national pride and patriotism. and is in it-self re pugnant to the principle-of common humanity. It is a war for which no adequate cau-e can be assigned, either in the aggrcs-ions of .Mexico and anarchy, and in our judgment is utterly in consistent with the steady maintenance of that Constitutional Order so indispensable to good (iovcrnment; and when it can fairly bo said to be encouraged by the legislature itself, it would seem to be time for those who inako the laws, and who have Ihchlghcst interest of the commu nity in thuir keeping, to pause and reflect. Cap ricious legislation is despotism ; and it would be hard to say that any people would not bo safer and happier under the caprice of one, than of ma ny, and harder still to expect that any free and enlightened people would, in these daj s, long en dure either. Our readers will receive these suggestions for what they are worth. There is nothing partic ularly n jw in them, or forcible except so far as they may bejust and true. And we will simply add that our own opinion is that the (leneral As sembly that should sit tho longest, and make tho fewest laws, would best entitle it-elf tothe grat itude, as it would be likely best toliavc pronuted the peace and welfare, of the people.

Whether the Session was UtVj; rnmigh to allhrd to each subject of legisla tion the careful deliberation, and the matured de rision, to which each was entitled, is not, per haps, for us to say. Wo may bo ierinitted to express our M'uf, however, that hasty and im mature legMation is getting to be a prominent i vil in our State. A largo majority of the two hundred and titty or sixty legislators who are an nually sent to tho Capitol, have conceived, or are charged with, some project for which thev docii it deirahle to obtain the solemn sanction of Lvvv. One observes, or has licen told, that a particular Statute, or a particular part of a Statute, operate: oppres.-ivoly, or iiiamteniently, ill one section of the State ; and another observes, or Iris Ix-en told, that additional provi-ions to existing Stat utes are demanded in another. Lach has hi. bill ready, to remedy the real or supposed defect, The effect is plain to he foreseen. A mnllUmlt of laws aie romn, each of which has its friend.- and advocates. Custom, (which usually has all tho force of law) requires that the Session should not extend briuml from three to live weeks' -the shot ter the more creditable, and the al most unavoidable tendency of things i to cau-e t ie ititn.diiction or wjlueucrt, and the presenta tion of milliter, to hear upon legislation, that are to a cnn-iderablc degrco incompatible witli its ju-t ami legitimate exercise, and h ive less res. pect to public than to private good. Laws aro enacted not so much, perhaps, lcraiie they are necessary or desirable in tbeinsclves.as because the os)iecial friends of them are able, bv various means, to secure votes enough to enact them ; and the fate ol measures gets to be decided not oil their intrinsic merits, but through the agency of considerations which, as wo havo intimated, are too frequently of a private and personal char acter. Wo do not make these remarks as specially ipplicablo to the legislature just past; but be cause wo havo had occasion, during tho la-t feven years, to observe tho evils of hasty and ill considered legislation. Laws are enacted nt one Session to bn repealed nt tho next, when the muses for tho repeal ought to havo been, and would havo been with the exercise of proper de liberation, foreseen at tho outset. We can call this nothing less than trilling with tho gravo and serious and momentous responsibilities which invest tho Law-Maker. It weakens tho povv cr and tho sanctions of guml laws, and almost nullifies tho oper.itionor poor ones. It leads to that most pernicious of all results, to, wit: a practice of setting at defiance any enactment of the Supreme Authority that may not be jupular, or that may Ik-thought to ! oppre-site.
