Timer? ^s athlngton correspondence of tbe New DsVy Tim** is lately timing with *bwe . the President. for the exercise of this pre rogative given him by tne Constitution which i he hM sworn tr upheld extract the ? Of the veto I need say but little. There can be scarce a doubt that unprejudiced men, "l ovSr the country, will feel chat in th?. act the Present has usurped and exercised a tvranical power inoet dangerous to the liber ties of the Republic. Ilis mes?ag? is oyer flow ing with theoant phrases tf siaall demagogues, about 'economy,' monopoly,' and all that sort of thing. With the Collins contract the President has nothing to do. That contract was made before the ccuntry had discovered anything of Franklin Pierce, except that he had tainted in Mexico. * * * ?? Franklin Pierre will yet learn that the veto power is not an inexhaustible element of popularity, upon which a weak, vasci latiDg, til judging President can draw art libitum in the expectation that bis capacity for mischief may blind ;he world to the want of m<r^l power over the affections, sentiments or respect of the mabiea. * * * * '? There is something very ,'ingular about this veto. The day before it came in tho Pre s". dent told a diatingui-hed Senator, us I am in formed, that he would ayprovt the bill. The idea of a veto of an Appropriation bill undar the?e circum-tances was deemed u'teily pro posterous; and the moat intelligent among tbe active opponents of the measure, In each House, tieeiy pronounced all such intimations to be utter nonsense ! But it turns cut that common sen.?e. a* they e timatedit, andFranl liu Pleroe are not fyuouuaous terms. ' It is reporteJ here that there was a time when this Washington correspondent of the Ttimts was every day ?een coming from the White Uou^e, and that the object of his visi< there was to obtain information in order to make the Timts more interesting. Then no such language appeared in his lotted but instead, only such words were used as would rather pleaso than effend. We have been versed in newspaperdom for some time, and hare learned that when a weathercock turns it is a sign that the wind has shitted. We are not posted ia the detail? of this matter at all. and would like to know what'* In the wind *ow. As t j tbe exercise cf this power by tbe Pretd dent, we have only to say, that from the time of Jackson down to the last Teto cf Presided Pierce, each veto has been sarctioued by i u - lie sentiment as soon as the people bed time to reflect, it is useless to speak of tht> u?e.* ol tb?3 powr, aa we hava already dene so at length. We will eu::j in the remarks of the New York Sun on tie subject: "The repeated exercise of the veto power by President Pierce, and the doubts of its propri ety which may have been excited in the minds of many. suggested the desirableness cf ^oilc ojmmcnts en tho subject It has been a fovo rite aim wiih a certain cla,-< of partisan preif es and j>bbing legislators to decry the vetc p iwer. and create a prejudice in the p^jul.u 111 td i g ucet its exercise, as il it threattned sojoegrea' danger to the country, but* verj cunsory examination of the matter will satir f| fy the unprtj tdiced mind '.hat the veto power is an imports'chec* on the hasty, bad, or c rrupt legislation, wisely placed in the bands <f the Executive by the Constitution, ani to be applied by hitn whenever, in his nnbia.-std judgment, the public interest* demand if. The veto power, wisely u td, is a m st valua ble element in the sjh tin ot '-chtcks ar.d bal ance:," whi.h distinguishes tho orgari.-in ?>t <>ur government trom that cf all others, anJ gives it its priceless value a.i a conservator and difluser of ireedom." A Leiter Writar'a Boich.?"0 s*rver," who writes from this city for the Philadelphia L >igtr, in a lite letter, says that Gen. Perei. ter F Smith '? ha* been appointed brigadier general, ihs President being afraid to appoint Qcn. Shilds on account cf his foreign birth " Il is scarcely ncceiiary to s*ytthero id no truth in this story. No appointment has been made for the position of biigidier general, and in all probability will not be, previous to lbs meeting cf noxt Congress. This story hns been circulated no doubt by the writer in question to gratify bis spite against the Presi dent, who failed to commission him as consul to Marseille?. ?? Observer," the New York Evening J'ost says 14 is an Austrian by birth, aLd a Swisj by profession.'' His foreign bir:h. we presume, was the least o*j:ction to him; there were f?r more weighty reasons than that. The facility with which the pen that afew daja ago prai el. can now atusa, id a p-oof that the l*u.\t w f? right in it; ettimatc of the profassion of the man who guiles it. The California Ecpub'ic ?California^ who yet remain iu Washington laugh heartily a the latest fabrication uoout theUolden State, published ia the shape of a later in that o. iginator <>f falsehood*?the N.

A eotomporary truthfully remarks: '?It Ii one of the tricks to which Bennett is continually r'sorting. iu ordjr to attract at tention to his piper If he sucoeeda in selling a few extra oop*es by the fraud upon the pub lis ho is q>ii;e c ntent to have his falsehoods exposed tuo next day "lfae only wonderh [ that the people d) not get tired of bein^ cheated eo oil en by iheee lying bubbler j."
