Mr. Walker was in |?erfect ecstasies when ha opened the bids for the eighteen million loan Nearly fifty-eight millions offered. Hurrah! What do you think now of the tariff of '46 and the potato rot 1 Where now is the necessity for the tax on tea and coffee 1 The fact is, the Mexican tariff was a far better expedient with the money lenders and the people. Better tax our enemies for their shirts, than our friends, the farmers, at home for the cup of hot coffeo. The farmers drink a iwwer of coffee. In manv of their houses an old woman coming to Bpend tlis day would be badly treated without her coffee for bre&kfust, dinner and supper. The farmer* only eat three times per diem. Coleman here has a nice lunch at 12, but he has no coffee. Gut i every body may drink colfee now. They are not going for to tax it. Mr. Walker is astonished at his good luck. Well, well, better to be born l lucky than wise, for a lucky inan can't fail to get I rich. Vidt, John Tyler und Corcoran J. Kigga. ] No tax on tea, neither. Well done Brinkerboff, : and hurrah for Rathbtin. Lord have mercy I on us, how all the old spinsters will glorify Mr. Walker. Well, tney will, hosa !? But the loan. The Wall street fund mongers fell behind the mark. Their long faces yesterday I told a dismal story. John ward and Squire ' Morgan, (he is a squire, ain't he 1) put in for some seven or eight millions at an eight per cent advance. No go. To use the expression of a bidder coming out of the treasury, "they didn't get a cent!" Same of Winslow for a million or two. Same of the seven million* bid by Havens, Henshaw, and others of Boston. Money is too abundant for big s|>eculntions. How the West and South are chuckling at the overslaugh of the fund mongers of New \ ork. 'Tis said that #100,000 were made in this city by sales at advanced premiums for the allotted stock or portions thereof; and that the individuals of the second-hand purchase bought with a view of gouging the New York brokers, and licked 'em at tneir own game. There never was such a sorry set of looking fellows on the face of the earth as the Wall and State streets, when the successful Hoosiers, Squatters, I'ukes, and Suck* ers,were announced as the friends of the treasury. A great many of the successful bidders are clerks, town merchants, butchers, cattle-drivers, and the hone and sinew of the country generally, in parcels ranging from #500 to #100,000. This is a grand idea. It is transmogrifying the power of the money lenders, par rxetllmtt it is giving the easting vote to the hard-fisted democracy. Wr uhmilfl not u'omlor if u'auM find it to his advantage, in the event of a treaty of peace, to invest his portion of the three millions in the State Treasury stock. There is no disputing the fact that this is a great country. Yours, truly, Two-and-Hai.f Pe* Cent. P. S. For further particulars, inquire in Wall street.

The claim covers a margin of SI,700,000 Mr. Sibcll owned a large property in Florida, jirnding the late Seminole war, saw mills for live oak, and various other improvements upon a large trnct of land, the whole of which were broken up by the 1T. S. army, and his whole business destroyed. He petitioned Congress; and at the session of '45- '6 an act was passed for his relief to the amount of |?I8,0O0. He was not satisfied And at the last session a bill was passed authorizing the claim to be settled by the Secretary of the Treasury on the principles of equity :msl liiutiro I|p|ti*r fhr HrmnnH far Ol AAA for indemnity.
