The who! world knows that he was taken up in the firs place by the New York Herald, represented by thi iournal as h til rw*rKOri fn tintmihv th:*t HiMiinfruuh.. J . ? ? r- ----- position, and that the movement thus commenced was followed up by the inde|>endent press in othe cities, and persisted in until it was reduced to moral certainty that he was the most suitable c all the men that had been mentioned, to fill th office tor which he had been designated. This is matter ot history, and is well known ti the people. It is also a matter of history that after Genera Taylor had been thus selected to fill that higli office, and when it was reduced to a moral certainty that he would be selected as a candidate, and would, in all probability, be elected, despite all opposition, different cliquesot politicians, whon we designated at the time as office seekers?wht had nc motive in supporting any candidate but thu of forwarding their own srlfish views, threw them selves into the current, and notwittistaiidmg thei well known ptefeience for other candidates, turnei round very suddenly and espoused the cause c General Taylor. There were two cliques or cote ries of this description in New York?the Wu street one, which held its meetings in L&layett Hall,Hiu Broadway; und the other clique, whtc assembled semi-cccastoually in Military flail, ii the Bowery. Knowing the men who com.iosci these coteries, and ot the motives which actuate* them, as wellH8 those which compelled them to tur; round and support the netoof liaena Vista fur tin Frruidenct, we stated our belief at the time, am directly accused them of being purely selfish 11 ihrirsupjiort of that distinguished man. We wen aot, however, alone in this opinion?utlierjournali followed our example, and, in answer to what we L..J t. A ~..A 1 ..f tlmmuulirsa m lidCJ mbiru, WIIU UJ ?*aj UI iruc r lUg hk nia .Mca ui ihe suppici* n thut they were in anarch of ofiice he Courier and Enquirer, which is the organ o the Wall Btreet clique, stated that the members o that clique clairied nothing, asked for nothing and expected nothing, in case General Taylo were elected. The following is the langusg which that journal used:? [From in* t/Ouriti and Knqutrer, Jan 18. 1848 ] In regard to calling this i.otodwl Weob'a mreitdf! It 1* rtn.ply iDUauro as a slur upon 'hoss woo bar united lu tbe call, uni who whl participate ta ih proceedings. It iidojk not us, nor can It povibly at noy tbe friends of Oem-rsl Taylor, who well know tha -we claim nothing, wak for notning. and aspect nc tbtnn except to labor with tbe people as one of tb multitude who desire to elevate to the presidency a honaat and Indopeneen' man. Here is the jn-nnunrlamento issued by the W? street clique, who cume into the field in the Taj |or ^cauee eniphacicully " at the heel of the hunt, in justification of their motives for eupporiin that distinguished man for the ofiice whicl he now occupies. A perusal of this extra ordinary document would convince any om not acquainted with political manmuvres, that tin 'Wall street clique really and honestly intended t< support Geueral Taylor, simply because he wen M an honest and independent man but it wouli make quite a different impression on tbote wtv Anow tlie way in which such things are managed .Now, in the face of thia positive renunciatioi m advance, of all claim to the SDoila in case c General Taylor's election, by this Wall strrc clique, what do we see 1 Do we see Col. Wrbl the very embodiment of this clique, standing i the bock ground, and disdaining u- teek office Do we sea hm coadjutors in that " sober, secon thought," do the some ? Let the facts speak fa themselves: Col. Webb himself, has been an ap plicant for a foreign mission?to Derlin, or Ma dnd, or some place else, ever since the election hisrow/>trts, Prrscott Hall, Hoffman,oh tries King and others, are applicants for various fat oflicet under the new administratton : and many of then are. now at Washington, pushing their claims to what they are in search of. Now, we put it to each and all of this clique whether they can consistently aecept o/ficc ttndci the administration of General Taylor, under tin -circumstances, and with this prnnuneiamtnU staring them in the face, in editorial type, in tilt columns ol their especial organ 1 How can thej remain at Washington, begging and bcseechinj for a portion of the spoils, when the Courier aw. JHw/utrtr expressly declared, as above (ao doub speaking tor the coterie), that it claimed nothing asked nething, and expected nothing We sub mit the esse to the new President. We put tin question to them with the understanding that w have a few more, of a similar nature, to ask b and by.

This apathy is really un*7 accountable. We cannot, for the life *t us, con*N ceire how a people so notoriously business-like, will ' w allow a clique of politicians of each party to rule si and rum this great city as they have done from Jh lime immemorial. It Is singular that men '** will look complacontly on an increase of taxauon from year to year, and allow a few paltry politicians to aeaeas taxation at an exorbitant rate, ? and waste the city funda after they reach the trea? eury, without raising their votcea against the inU lquitous system. But so it is, so it has been, and id so it will ever be, we suppose, unless some great f change takes place in the nublic mind whir-h ? ur do not anticipate. In a few days the politicians A will, aa usual, assemble in the grog shops und oyster cellars around town, arrange all the political " machinery, and propose to the voters ol = New York two seta of candidates for Mayoralty and Common Councilmen; and the self-cheated n and humbugged people will vote for men, as they ? have done in former years, who will give us dirtier streets than ever, assess taxes greater than ever, < and whose career will be characterised by more waete, extravagance, and corruption than that of _ any of their predecessors, whig, democrat, or native. This will be the case in the year 1819, as 's it has been from time immemorial. We have abandoned all idea of the tax-payers * ever stirring themselves in the matter of reforming our municipal government. We have come to the ? conclusion that they cannot be moved?that they will submit to anything that is imposed on them, '* no matter liovr corrupt or extravagant; and have determined to cease making any appeal to them in 1 future. We have a few words, however, to say to the politicians and wire-pullers. They have it all their own way now, and we advise them to "put it on thick" this year. Let them manage their cards so that the very worst men oi both parties will be selected. No matter who they are, they will and must be elected?one set or the other. , Let the democratic wire-pullers select, as eandi,1 dates, men who will not scruple at expending live e millions of dollars instead ef three; let them obtain e pledges, before their nomination, that, if elected, it they will give fat contracts to their friends?let the B whigs do the same. One or the other set will cerd tainly be elected, and :hey may, by agreement, I, divide the spoils between them. There is not the r least danger of such a scheme succeeding, for the a tax-payers of New York care not how much they ,f arc assessed. Whatever it is, they will pay it n To be sure, they will grumble and growl a little. but they are so inured to that, that it would be a d pity to deprive them oi the luxury of doing so. They must not stop at any length. They nifty be | the means of driving a few thousand poor people ! to Brooklyn or Williamsburgh, but what oi that? A poor man has no right to live at all, anywhere. We beg of them, especially, ihat they will make it . a tine qua no*, that after election the candidates i will not have the streets touched with a broom ) during their term of oilice, while during the same I period they will levy at least half a million of dol. lars for street cleaning; that they will grant leases r of the ftrry rights of the city for nothing, and pay d the lessees something handsome in addition; and ,t that they v ill, in every other respect, fleece the .. people without compunction. Tho unfortunate II short-sighted tax-payers will taKe it in good part, e atd will, no doubt, continue them in office for h the j ear afterwards. ? Go ii, politicians and wire-pullers, but when you j do go it, go it strong! ^ The Si-tno Shot?We perceive that notice has l,een given, in our Legislature, of the introduction j ol a bill prohibiting the sale or use of the instrument known as slung shot. We hope that the 1 measure will be lollowed out, and the manufacture, sale, or use of that weapon be made a penal ofience. j. This movement has been made in good time ; and it the proposed bill should pass, it will be one j of the most popular measures that ever was enact( ed. Carrying weapons of any kiad ?whether slung shots, piBtols, duks, or knives?is a cowardly u-ac - ..... Ko.l .no..1 r ot d? ath resulting Irom their use, that the voice of the moral portion of the community is against it. None but a dastard or a coward would habitually r wear weapons of any description, unless he were * in dread of assault from a man more physically l- powerful than himself, or that he considered his life in danger. Even in that case, we would not ie tolerate, if we could prevent it, the use of the slung n shot; for that is a weapon with which death can be ij inflicted without noise?withwut causing even a ,m gioan from the dying victim. If a man acts in .. self-defence, and is compelled by the instinct of ^ piesetvation, to take the life of unother, or lose Ij his own, the law will justify the act, and it maybe done ojienly and above board by shooting down K the assailant. But the cases in which the wearing ? el Wf apons and the using of them is justifiable, are } exceedingly rare. We live in a land of law, and g the ministers of the law can protect those who canI side r themselves in danger. We would unhr si tatingly set down a man who makes a practice of carrying weapons, as a coward and a poltroon. It n gives an undue advantage, which none but a coward would take. If a strong man were to beat >t and abuse a weak one, he would be marked as a j poltroon ; and the case is precisely s milar of an armed man attacking one who is unarmed. 1 Another objection against the wearing of any j kind of weapon, is the danger that it may be r used with fatal effect, in a moment of passion or cxh citement. Few of us weak human beings have not been 60 much excited, at some time or other, as to indues us to take life had we weapons about our persons with which to do it; yet, on calm reflection after reason and composure are restored, we would j re forry lor me asp, ana n we escapea ine penally r which the law lafKcts for unnecessarily shedding a brother's blood, we would suffer for the act the remainder of our lives. Hut (or this practice of ' carrying weapons, Timothy Shea would now be , alive, and Mrs. Walker would not have been sent , out of existence in the prime of womanhood?our , juries woald not be compelled to pass on the lives f of (he aggressors, nor our judges to pass senj tence of death on the convicted. A man bereft I of reason, and in the time of excitement, is a det umn, and no one who known the frailties of his nature, would carry a weapon, except in case of self defence, as before adverted to, unless lie is a ? coward, a poltroon, a murderer, in his heart. e We sincerely hope that the bill noon to be mtroy duced into our Legislature on the subject, will be* come a law, and that the use or wearing of slung e shot may be made a penal offence. Ir, Major Robert*, op the Kiri.ic*.?We notice in ie the proceeding* ol the Iowa Legislature, that a y bwuro nan oern unanimously voted Major Roberts, ii for his handsome conduct in the late war with j. Mexico. It hits also made him a very appropriate vote of thanks. We are hsppy to see this well g merited compliment to an officer so greatly distiii' guished as Maior Roberta. His regiment bore the * hrunt of every battle from Vers Crua to the c ty of Mexico, and although the length and breadth of 9 4><- land has been filled witn the story of its well h earned fame, too much cannot be said in praise <>t this officer, who commanded the advanced guard on the glorious field of Contreraa, and led the bicrniers of Twiggs' division, that, under the galIt. nt Quitman, fiiat carried the srriiieaand stars of our country into the city of Mexico. For his greatlv distinguished gallantry at the storming of Cb. pultepee and the cspture of the cite, General Qimman selected htm to carry into the capital, m d isise there, the first banner of freedom that i? cu r flouted above the haila of the Moutezumas? Thiowssthe flag of his atormers, from Smith's "1 brigade, and was carried by the picked riflemen i I r<?n the rifle regiment That flag, and this officer, "a j arr truly covered with glory. | Cbaxlss Gsvam Dorrr?There can be bat oat opinion ot the eoarne which the British eovern meat boa panned, and te puraumg, towards the patriot, Charles Gavan Duffy. Me was arrested nice months ago, and has been confined in prison ever since. During that period he has been indicted on five several occasions; his health his suffered severely from bad and unwholesome food, and trouble and anxiety of mind unspeakable, from the circumstances connected with his situation In addition to all this, his business, which was very prosperous at the time of his arrest, has been entirely uestroyrd, and he has been made a bankrupt by the government, having lost some forty thousand dollars in consequence ot his persecution. Mr. Duffy has recently been tried for the crtire (1) which he has been charged with, but ine jury wnicn were emp&nneiea m me ease could not agree, and were discharged without a verdict. This was evidently a disappointment to the government, for a steam vessel, ready for sea, was waiting for the conviction and sentence, to carry him beyond the seas. it would be supposed, that after failing in several Indictments, and on a trial to secure their victim, the government would have been magnanimous enough to cease further persecution, aid order Mr. PufTy's liberation. But it did nothing of the kind : so far from it, a motion to admit him to bail was denied, and he was remanded back to prison, to be again tried in the month of April next, when, no doubt, the government and its minions will exercise all their ingenuity, in the use of blood-money and jury packing, to secure & conviction, and set rid of Mr. Duffy, for it is apparent hat t^ueen Victoria's throne cannot be considered safe, unless he is got rid of in some way or other legal or illegal. Climate op California.?We have received meteorological tables of the weather and thermometer lit Monterev. Tinner Halitornia lr.ni k? T?l. Lot H. Greeie, Esq., a merchant, at Monterey, during the space of a year, viz: from March, 1815, to February, 1816. From these tables, a pretty good idea may be formed of the climate of California In March. 1845, the thermometer averaged 65 at noon. There was no rain; the sky generally clear. In April, same degree of heat; five rainy days, four F'ggy, the others clear. In May, the thermometer at noon never rose higher than 64, aud never fell lower than 08; weather clear. In June, the highest noonday heat was 75; the lowest 60; weather clear. In July, the highest heat at noon, 74; lowest 60; clear skies. Iii August, greatest heat at noon, 72 lowest; 63; clear skies. In September, greatest heat at noon, 73; lowest, 61; clear skies, occasional togs at 8 in tnc morning; rain once only. In October, greatest heat at noon, 70, lowest, 59; fogs in the morning, days clear; rain three times within this mouth?a little rain in the night on two occasions. In November, greatest heat76; lowest60; weather generally clear; rams in the night occasionally. In December, greatest heat 66; lowest 57; clear weather; rain on tour diflereut nights this mouth. In.lunuaiy, 1816, greatest heat, 62; lowest 18; in'"rc ram hub iii?'inn muu me luruicr moiiuia. In February, 1H16, average heat at noon, 62; loweat, 60; clear skies; rain on three different nights. A pretty general idea may be tunned from tht.-of the clirnaie as to waimth. It appears to be remarkably mild and temperate This is the result ot the (acts, not a conclusion of mere opinion.

This pleoe has always been a grast favo- . lite, and after a lapse of tome few weeks It really ? almost becomes a new pleoe; the reason possibly for , this is in consequenee of tbe excellent style in wblob ? it is put upon tbe stage; we mueh doubt if any one oau a persons'e the character of Cap'ain Cuttle like Mr Burton; he is tbe old sailor to perfeetlon; and Toon, g by Mr. Itsymend has no equal In tbat particular char- ( acter; Major Joe Bagxtook. by Mr. Brougham, together r wlib bis Jack Buasby, Is most excellent; Mrs Brougham as Susan Nipper, Mrs Vernon at Mrs Sk~wten. sod. 0 in fact, all tbe performers eonneoted In this beautiful piece, a e very good; take It altogether, we know of no other piece where the oast is so perfect; they alt appear * o have a part adapted exclusively for their particular 1 talent. 1 he piece went off with nobouoded applause, to a crowded bouse, and well it may, for It Is one of * sterling merit.
