The New York Evening Po?t and Gov. lieeder.?The friends of the New York Evn in? Post, notwithstanding its infidelity to ra :ny of the cardinal principles of the Consti tution, have, for many years, claimed especial consideration fur that paper by reason of its stern and n<wi-comproini.-ing opposition to aM kind.* of official extravagance and peculation on the part of officers of the Federal Govern ment. The Post ha* been held up a? a jour nal which never failed to rebnke the official conduct of any Government ofiicer, who used hi* public position to advance his private pe cuniary interests. Recent events have shown, however, that hatred of Franklin Pierce is stronger with the Pott than its assumed devo tion to official integrity and economy in those who hold subordinate positions in the Govern ment. ihat paper o| August 3.1, in commenting upon an article of Monday last iu the Star, of which the following is an extract? u For reasons not to be considered in a hasty paragraph, because they are connected with every item of the history of the organization and growth of the Territory of Kansas, a dead tock has occurred between the representatives of the people of that Territory and the Gover nor. The whole legislative' business of the Territory had been brought to a st.and-.;iil" says: ?? Let us state this *. tse in another form. A Kand of thieve* visit a plantation of Uncle Sam > one dark night, and attempt to plunder it. They encounter at the <satt one of tj,irh Sim v servants, who resirts them; tiny strug gle: the servant is not strong en >ugh*to take tin in to j ?il without he'p, ar.d the thieves are not str>ng enough to prosecute their villainy while the servant resists them. Thr help doe l ot come ami tb^y are brought to ;t dead-lo- k. What should wo think ot the writer who sh<>uld dismt > v it,at servant, and say ht v tt sr fulness ir'.s gone, because he wa^ unable to get along h iimoniously wi?b who were irying to rob the p!aee ? We should say that such a master was not worthy of having a faithful servant, and we should naturally sus pect that he had some unexplained eomp/iritq vi'h the robbers which rendered a faithful ser vai t rather a stumbling block than otherwise to hi: purposes.*' Now, it w<>uld rather seem that, according to the articles of association of the proprietors of Pawnee City," of which G ?vernor Rcedci is one. as pointtd out iu the Washingt ju Union of the ?*>'h instant, the case of the Evening Pc.'t, :'3 sl.i'ed above, shun'd be applied ii. thi- form. The " band of thieves * are Ilceder. Montgomery. Johnson & Co. The "planta tion of I r.cle Seal" i- the military reserva tion at F.^rt Riley. The "servant of Uncle tarn encountered at the gates," who re-is? the plunderers, is the Prcsideut of the 1 uiteu States. And ire should hardly think that the ??master, of that servant (who are the peo ple in the President s ca^e) would co, demii the ? servant, and say "his usefulness wa gone, because he was to cct alon" bar c o moniousiy wdh those who were trying to r 1 the place If they did, we should say th< people could not appreciate, md were "no; worthy of having a faithful servant ' And "we h -uld naturally suspect" that eveiv newspaper which, like the Evtnin~ Po t shoi'Id a-sail the "servaiit for his conduct ?? had xoni< unexplained comp!aHy with thi rohbr rt.'~ It rau-t be remembered that the re-cr\ ;:tion up which Governor Reeder hit- attein;'.?d t-- lay out Pawnee City and sell 1-ts. is much the absolute, unconditional property t : toe Government, a- i Lafayette Square, it. tl Is eity, or as are th??

I We do not suppose that yny .-en.-ihle man would insi-t t.iat because Governors of Territo ries had heretofore made money by meats of their cfiicial position, that President Pierce is biUt.d to t?derate such infidelity and impro priety in hi? appointees. At any rate, wha4 ever may be i^si-ted, we are certain that he will n<jt, no matter who is the officer, or how high he may be iu the confidence of the coun try. It the abolitionists wi?h to raise an i-sue with the President bccause he does not hesi tate to crush out corruption in high places. n.? b <dy will object. They will not deter us from denouncing the official ajts of Governor Reed er, for which he is removed, whilo we refrain fro?n ary imp achiueut of the motives or yur pottj which actuated him in their commission. "Catting it Fat."?Those interested in the well-being of the public schools of this city ?will do well to read and ponder on our report of the doings of the Council Board yesterday afternoon, on the bill to make a general super intendent of the schools, wherein they will see plainly that the only object which the Know ^olbuiga of the Councils had iu connection with the matter, was u> make for some one of their hungry partisans, in our own city, an office to reward his political labors?for they voted down a proposition to advertise for a ' proper person, so as to got the best possible | officer for the salary paid, como from where he .light; which should have boon done, as those ; vrhose children rely on our public schools for their education, well know. The debato de- ! > elopes the fact, it strike? us, that Mr. Coun- ' ?ilman AtLee?the gentleman who, not long 1 ince, so indignantly repelled the charge of j yinpathy with Know Nothingism?is fi-hiug ' ?r the place. The soundness of our judgment .1 the premises will, however, be tested at the ?xi meeting of the Board of Trustees, when lie election wiil probably be made.

Ami. Bkv. ake or thk Man who Nt ver Laughs In a sermon delivered by Rev Dr. Bellows, of N'etv York, before the Western I nitirianCon lorence, i - the fallowiug paragraph ? For my own part, I say it in a!! solemni ty, I have in ? d to become sincerely suspicious 01 tue piety ol ih'ise who do not love pleasure iii >.uy form. I cannot trust the man who n ;ver laughs; that is always sedate; that has no apparent outlets for those natural springs of sportivetiess and gaiety that are perrenial in the human soul. I know that nature takes ii -i revenge on such violence. I expect to lii.d secret vices, malignant sins or horrid dimes springing up in this hot-bed of confined a:r and imprisoned spate: and therefore it rives me a . incere moral g; at ification anywhere, iniil in any community, to see innocent pleas ures and popular amusements resisting the re li/ious bigotry that frowns so unwisely upon them. Anything is better than that dark, dead, unhappy social life?a prey to ennui and morbid excitement, which rt suits from un mitigated Puritanism, whose secoud crop is u-ually unbridled license and infamous folly."1 r,~zF A number of native Congocs?real Guinea negroes?arrived at Salem, Mass., a ft. w days ago. The Gazette says : '? They had managed to acquire considerable knowledge of English, ami a reply of one of them to a questioner displayed a shrewdness wcrth men tioning. A spectator happened among other queries, to ask how they liked America. Congo immediately answered: '-Ah. me no like Merican land?cold morning, cold night, make uos? leak like a basket." The crowd shouted. :md Congo, showing his ivory, tumbled into the ship s boat to be conveyed to the vessel's side. Specie is m scarce in Schenectady that a man was arrested on suspicion of being a bank robber because he had three shillings and sixpence in his pocket.
