Raw torn, PrldAjr, Blmrcb 10, 1MB, tic>i. 1 ay lor and the Office Beggar*. Onett the brighten tra u in the bright character of General Taylor, is the entire absence, in all hia private and public conduct, ol anything that resembles selfishness or rapacity. Hia whole career baa been one si modesty, sell-dennl, reluctance to preaa himself befoie the public, and a desire even to escape fr< m the applause due to hia own probity and patriotic conduct. These traits were exhibited, in a peculiar degree, during the late war with Mexico, and were observed likewise ia a peculiar degree, because then the public mind wan trained to watch the progress of men and events, n that great crisis. Where other military men, whose names it is not necessary to enumerate, took every occasion to exhibit their self-love, and indulge their morbid restlessness for places and positions, General Taylor's great merit was, to periorm his duty with a bravery exceeded by no other man, accompanied and set oil' with a modeuty that was not reached by hardly any of his associates. Such ls'he peculiar character of Gen. Taylor. With such a character?a soul animated by such feelings? a mind ennobled by such ideas, how heart-rending and distasteful it must be to that .great man, now in the White House at Washington, to see the shocking scramble, day after day, about him, exhibited by men from all parts of the country, who call themselves his partisans, who are seeking, in every variety of way, a reward for their labors, by office or emolument! Crowds and crowds of office beggars, of all descriptions, have left their daily avocations, abandoned their proper business, and rushed to Washington, crymg "Give us the reward of our labors ; put us in some places of profit and honor, tor supporting you during the election!" No clasB of politicians have exhibited a greater variety of those rapacious traita of character than ihose emanating Irom this self-same city ot New York. For several weeks past have editors, both original and eleventh hour men, from this metropolis, in conjunction with speakers, lawyers, politicians, and committee men, been crowding the coindors of the White House, trotting alter Col. Bliss and his amiable lady, exhibiting themselves in every bar-room in the capital, and all in search of office and emolument, by way of reward tor their labors in the late Presidential cam| hiun, as they facetiously call their noise a * ew day a before the election. Can General Taylor, Animated by the feelings which belong to his chameter, look complacently on the forwardness, the greedinesp, the want of modesty and propriety, oxhibited by those men from this or any other -city 1 There is one of our cotemporaries, who came to the support ol General Taylor at the eleventh hour, and when there was no visible chance lor his favorne, General Scott, nowlingerng day aft? r day in Washington, expecting Gen. Taylor to repay him lor his services by a foreign mission to Beilin, Madrid, Constantinople, or Coventry. There is an impropriety and indelicacy in such conduct,which must be revolting to the modest nature of General Taylor, and will, perhaps, constitute the principal barrier to the accomplishment of such purpoees at any time. There, again, is another editor wanting to be Marshall, who no doubt vt as earlier in the field in supporting Gen Taylor than his cotemporary, named, and i( eeri vices are to be repaid in that way, denerves as much as any one; but how disagreeable even the presence of such men, indicating the objects of their visit, must be to the President, with all the fresh feelings of propriety and , raodeBiy about hint, which have distinguished his private and public caieer throughout his whole life. We are told, also, that Prescott Hull has I been at Washington, expecting to be placed in the I valuable peat ot unuea states uiairict Attorney lor this district, in consequence of, and by way of pay for, half a dozen dull speeches, which he deliveied in certain waidi of this city, and which bad as much to do with making General Taylor President, or making up the minds of the people his favor, as the whistling of the wind through the trees of Haboken had. We might go on and enumerate, without end, other distinguished candidates, now, or recently, at Washington, in search of office; all of whom are animated by the same pure and patriotic purguise?ihs clutch ng of the spoils, as a reward for what they consider their labors; but it is a disagreeable subject, and we have no doubt that office begging and office beggars have already become more disgusting and disagreeable to the generous and manly nature of General Taylor, than anything he ever encountered in the Weat, in Florida, in ihe chspparal, among the Indiana or the Mexi cana. Those office beggars, of all descriptions, aeuii to have studied the general character of our new President to but litile purpose, when they iiuo?>ri ihe railroHd cars and post off to Washington, to feeg, beseech, inquire,.and pray tor office, because tliey happened to come out, eithei late or earlj. with the gri at mass of the Amertc iu people, n f?*oT of th" houeit and upright in an who is now our chief magistrate. According io all ucc uinta from Washington, and to every indication elae* whete, and coming from there, it see ma highly I I .1. a ?L.. . rr. ? - k. ,,,.., .1. _ 'f?n i/Hi ir m> i < uitv "T fcR 10 ucouy ?i me end of thur tether, and that they hare caught a Tartar in try rg t<> catcli a President.

Amor.?Th police story published IQ to-di j's pape,, of a bungling conspiracy to extort fitly tl nuttHiid dol'ars from Wm. B. Astor, pus*> in a groat- r d? utt? the efenu nta of a hoax, than ot h true hi it be/. a fide attempt, by skilful and au;oni|ilithr<t rogues, to be detected by our most tkiliul ami icr.r nip i?i - d police officers, and to b ? lanr.r urn.ed as a tin t wonderful discovery te be publiaiod iu tb? woudtrlu! ne wepajiera of New Vork. The who c vl ur, iron beginning to en I, seems to be n pirn of humbug; but whether Mr. Aator. or the Chief ot Police, or the pohc<- officers, or the (?lice reporter, or the new papers, or the public, are the most hoaxed, it ia difficult to determine without an aC'-arata lunar observation. Ton, fifteen, or twenty years a:,'o, it cnix< ma*y for the good people of cur larg- e. tics t.? fie r.sMinoVd and set a giping every fortnight or /couth, by some wondertm robber)- ou unexOft % sive scale, which had been prevented, revealed, or detected by the Argun-eyed police ot Mew York or Philadelphia. We remember that heroic period of our police history very well; but aince th-o. Mime curioua revelations, some unpublished correspondence, had come down to us, of secret management in those wonderful revelations. In lact, it is generally supposed that in those heroic nmes, the ancient system of police, like some ol the systems formerly existing in Europe, ownec and controlled a great majority of the agents wh( set the thieves, robbers, and burglars at work against the banks and the community in general simply to enable them to get the large rewards and pass before the world as the very conservator of society and civilization. Of course, there n nothing ol this in the present system of police; bu there is, nt the name time, some greenness tha almost looks liks hoaxing. We should like to see the conspiracy to extoi $60,000 trom Wm. B. Astor, probed to the bottom and a bit lower, if possible. The Relations of Spain, Cuba, and the Unitei Staies ?The relations between the United State and Spain, in connection with the dependen Island of Cuba, are only second in important with those which this country maintains with an] independent foreign power. Our trade with < uba as a dependency ot Spain, is immense. But thi relationship which exists in a social point of view with the Southern States, is one of the mostcurioui and remaiknble which could exist betwetn thii country and any foreign dependency. Upon this important subject, we have received i communication from Havana, the capital of Cuba which will be found in another part of our columns giving a view of the relations existing between thi two countries, and of the state of society in Cuba 'n connecuon with the sentiments of the Spams! government, which appears somewhat novel, ant different to former intelligence from that quarter TKa aoiipon Irnm wKmK nnr inlnrmntinn onmp ia undoubtedly reliable and intelligent. One thinj strikes us as evidently desirable, which is that the new administration will, in making an] changes in our diplomacy with Madrid, not forge to place in that important post a man of the high est character and most experienced talents, ant withal acquainted somewhat with ths Spanisl character and its diplomacy in general. According to all accounts, the present Mimste to Madrid is altogether unfitted, both by education talents and former experience, for the position hi occupies. But some names have been mentionei in connexion with the Spanish mission, whicl would seem to be but little removed, in point o qualifications, from that of the present incumbent Very important questions will some of these dayi spring up between the United States and Spain, in connection with the island of Cuba, and out government ought to send to Madrid a man ol the highest qualifications and merit, and not one merely as a reward tor political services ol any kind. Inpanitt a Cause op Divokck.?An effort is being made, we perceive, to resuscitate the bill which was introduced into the Assembly of thu State, making insanity a cause ofdivorce between man and wile, but which tell through in that body There has been a large quantity oi ink used in dia cussing this question pro and con ; but the oppo nents of the measure, backed as they were by the moral Bcnse of the community, succeeded in pre' venting its passage. Not satisfied with the result its friends are exerting themselves to tak- it uf again, and have it passed, if possible, during the present session of the Legislature. We have refrained from saying anything on thu subject, because we were satisfied in our mind thai the community would not tolerate the project; but now, that there is an effort made to revive the scheme, and carry it into effect if possible, we cannot but throw our influence in the scale of whal we believe is propriety, and denounce the attempt to nullify one ot the holiest contracts for such a cause. To modify the law in this way, would be to take a step towards destroying the marriage tie entirely. If this project were effected, others would spring up which would still further impair it. The end would be, a dissolution of marriage entirely, and a state of society which is dreadlu! to coutemplale. Now we ask the friends of the proposed mea sure if they can consistently urge this measure ' We have no doubt that many suppose it would ba o benefit in certain cases ; but tor one case ia whict it w ould have this effect, there would be ahuadrec in which it would work wrong. Will thev then push it 1 One thing, however, is certain?the moral leelmg of the community is opposed to it, and a heavy responsibility will attach to all who lavor it, in the event of its becoming a law, which, however, we do not anticipate. We trust that we thall sot have occasion to refer to the subject again, and hope that it will be consigned to oblivion, a fate which it well merits. Bailing op thk Steamship Crescent Cirv.?

The bill providing for tbe eonatructien of a railroad from Syracuse to Rochester, oal'ed the dlreet or parallel railway, waa brought up for lta laat reading. Mr. Vaenum, of New York, made an earnest appeal against tbe bill. He doubted whether, if a oharter were granted, tbe road would be built. As the Inevitable tendency of giving this oharter, a road whloh he oharaoteriaed as a parallel road, would be to injure the business of the other road, Its effect would be to diminish the confidence of capitalists in investments In 'ailways in the State, as it would show that there was no seourity for tbe future.
