Variety depends on brevity Without it there can be no variety in the column* of the newspaper. Ouukmm is the rule. Much ia little. The beat newspaper edi tors generally write the briefest editorial*. Prolix and discursive writers ere it only for toe mags tines. Terse, sententious ar ticles, an what is needed in toe newspa per. The public be* neither tune for. nor patience with, wordy eeeaya or column ed itorials. Reduce them down, to a highly concentrated double compound extract. Compress volumes into a sentence. Give the kernel without the shell; the enam without the shy-bhie lac; then will have been attained the highest excellence of journalistic composition. About the easi est thing an editor finds to do, ia to take hi* pen and string together an indefinite number of words, with an infinite deal of notfimy in them. These effusive gentle men, mostly found ia connection with the daily faces, an wont to sneer at ‘-paste and scissors, as things beneath their call ing ; whereas, their judicious use. in con nection with the pen. is much more ac ceptable than their own rapid diaenrsion, which proceeds upon the hypothesis that they are toe repositories of all wisdom, and the public, for whom they write, know nothing. This is n mistake, often fatal to journals afflicted with that kind of editorial mismanagement. Brevity, condensation, combination, variety, are the chief excel lencies of toe newspaper Tax Fajulv Qcauil in Baltixoux. —The Baltimore America* ia not pleased with the appointment of Washington Booth, as Collector of toe Port of Baltimore, rice John L. Thomas, removed, and thinks the rules of the civil service were violated in this ease. It ia gratifying to see that the American is independent enough to my this much Abject subserviency to the appointing power ia the prevailing rale, from which hot few pnrtitan journals have the nerve to depart. The majority of them obsequiously act upon the principle that “whatever ia, ia right.” Washington telegram* my the President has recognised the Cresvell wing, while the Americas wing has been moat decidedly snubbed Eddington Fulton, Surveyor, is not to be removed, however, on account of hia re calcitrant relative. This, at least, is com mendable in the "powers tost be." An exchange, in speaking of newspapers sod what ia expected of them, very forci bly remerks that “there is no business in all the wide world to subject to rpomjimg ee the art or trade of printing a newspaper. Public corporations, societies and assocta tome ia general, have peculiar idee* about papers. They think they ought to print, puff and publish, all for nothing, cards of thanks, tributes of respect, personal com munications. or anything rise that only in terests a few persons, and not the general reader. And tone one end another will sponge. They forget that it takes money to pay compositors—to buy ink, type and paper, and, lastly, they forget cant to thank fo tor gratuitously puffing their business or serving toe pabUc. “Oxx Mobe UproETCeATß."—Alex ander Caldwell, Republican, recently elected Senator from Kansas, resigned on Monday, to save himself from expulsion on the charge of bribery. A resignation under such circumstance* can bear no other in terpretation than a confession of guilt.

An Admirable Retort j Senator Bayard of Delaware, one of the ( ablest, truest and must efficient members p of the U. 8.

Congress has made and I, unmade toe State governments in the South at will, and there is no element of misgovern e ment for which your party majority are not if responsible. The mingled web of ignorance aod fraud, of corruption and venality, of ra pacity and crime, in whose meshes those un a happy communities ere vainly struggling, was j woven by yoar bands alone.
