We, therefore, believe, and onr kind reader will aohncwledge that we are right, that the two journalist# named at tba head of this article are much alike by many and many eaueea of similarity. But let It be underttood that we do not mean that they are mrnrcAaif Drnmioi, on the contrary, we shall My that there ara many distinct oppositions in them. We compare, but We do not assimilate, and we say with MoUire ? " Ve?, w? like b-tter. we studious men, A fair rnmnarlaen than a resemblance." Thus, in order to begin, onn boa the courage of a duellist; the other I- en' ira-ly deprieeil of it; but both of them ncrer h-slut- to nereM their Instantaneous opinion*, and they do it with a rare audacity The New York publlsh-r i? n> loirtet-or of hi* newaoaper. the only muter of bia property, editor in chief, and ?o ia tbe Parisian gazette r. be* posse"" an eqnsl ability, either u administrators. or na publioiat*.

Neither Bennett, nor Olrardln, has a real politioal opinion Nobody can tell to what party they belong Thtir friends ol to-day are their enemies of to morrow. Their animosity is rather produoed by a personal pique than by political antagonism Their friendship, when xot certain, ia rather more Injurious than useful Their hatred, when constant, is eery annoying, and cften dangerous.

Washington, Sept. 21, 1H49. tdore Diplomatic Perplexitiei?the Cute of How. ard Payne and the Bey of Tunit. Among other diplomatic perplexities at Washington, some materials for disagreeable correspondence and explanation appear to have been generated by injustice on the one aide, and official blunders on the other, between the Bev of Tunis and certain agents ot our government. The affair, in brief, is as we now relate. Upon the resignation of Mr. Hodgson, some years ago, the place of Consul at Tunis was spontaneously offered to John Howard Payne. It came upon him as a Bort af surprise, for it nad been entirely unsolicited. Howard Payne, it seems, on arriving at Tunis, feuud the consulate in a very neglected condition, rxternally as wall as intarnally. Among other reforms, he saw that it was desirable to get the consular mansion into a presentable ana habitable shape. All the Consuls at Tunis, it seems, rent their houses from the Bey, who takes care to keep hta ioyal finger in every profitable pie. Howard Payne represented the forlornness of the American consular mansion to the State Department at home, and was answered in a spirit of condolence, but with regret that the law did not allow government to expend aught for the repair, nor even for the rent of Consul's houses. They must pay their rents out of their salaries; and if the hsuses they hire are not to their liking, so much the worse for the Consuls. Meanwile, Howard Psyna found that His Highness ttie- Bey was rebuilding the mansion of the British Consul, 8ir Thomas Tirade, from cellar to garret, nnd, at the same time, allowing the aforesaid representative of Her Britannic Majesty a magnificent palace by the sea ride to live in, rent free, while the town establishment was getting ready. Unon this hint he spake He told his royal landlord that the United States Consul was entitled by treaty to equal privileges with every other foreign f unctionary, and that repairs in the mansion rented by hiin he felt to be his due, not only by the law of landlord and tenant in all countries, but by express treaty stipulation in Tunis. The Bey rereived the application with marked Courtesy, and promised thst everything which was wsnted, should be done, and forthwith. Thereiijam. the roofs were taken off, the staircares pulled aown, and the consul reduced for a residence to a corner of his large mansion. This comfortable state of affairs being created, the wetk-people withdrew. Howard Payne, on enquiry, discovered that this way of doing business was very much the fashion i m mi .vi a fki#? \!nnr? Snm# nf hi? rnll^AifiiMi in* formed him that similar difficulties were continually occurring to them, and that they got over them by OPipIl tine their repaint under their own direction, and deducting the expense front their rent. Howard Payne rernouatrated with the Hey, who promised to have the work immediately returned and (iniahed. It wu? re-commenced in j good earneat. After awhile, however, it Ian- J guiehed again ; anil, on inquiry, he wa* told that : the languor waa caueed by the irregularity with which the wotk-|>eoplr got their pay. They are impressed, it seems, into the Hey a aervice, and escape to more profitable, or more promptly oaid ! employ, whenever they can. It waa hinted to j Howard Payne, that if he would advance the pay I w eekly, it w ould he returned to him from time to I time, and the woik would thenceforward goon regularly. lie tiid mi ; and the first advance* wera re- j funded; hut, alter awhile, no repayment was offered, and the laborers once more began to appear only after long intervals, and but two or three at a time, even then. Howard Payne now ascertained that the British Com-ul had prevented similar inconveniences hy mploying for a supervisor of the work upon the , British consulate, a distinguished European architect, who had resided many years among the Moors, and was aware of all their tricks, and how to manage them. Howard Payne apprized the Bey's ? fflcer that he prt>|iosed following the example of his colleague from England; and the Bey's 1 officer said he was very plad of it, and he received it.. I .Utopian's direction* with gratitude, and the nil * ir wini on iwinimmi'lv. The officer of the Hey wb* even the mors (it lighted when he waa told that lor the *ervicr e ol the European aupervi*or, no charge would be made; and h- thought it a grand thing that head work ahould be got for nothing, while hand work waa nlwaya required to be paid lor. The European auperviaor luckily diacovered tin t the foundatiooa of the betiding hud l>< < t me ?i? l< cure, and the Itey'a nHicrr acemed in terfect eeatac* with the di?covery that enabled hie matter'a old houae to be prevented from tumbling all of a etidden about the wnrkmen'e ears At laa?, the alnrrauid officer of the Hey, who had never, from the beginning, been more than an occaeioral viaiter, and, even then. aeld<>m aober, waa aeen no more, though the work went on na uaual, alowly, but thorowgnljr. It waa aaid that the aupenntending Moor in queetion had been withdrawn In cnnaequence of hia intemperate hahita. Howard I'avne. meanwhile, to be on the aafe aide, inatrvcted the European architect not 10 permit anything to be done for whieh he could not bring a precedent from the Hritieb consular manaion, and evety tii w and then, a hit of new requirrmenta waa ?ent to the lley, who alwava ordered a train of eiaminera to re(iort whether the catalogue ought to be acted on. The examiner* never objected to any item, but, on the eontrant, frequently propoted addition*, which had not before been thought of. For about two year* thia all iir wr dragging ita way alowly onward?Howard Payne, nil the while, living at a barbarian metropolia, in a narrow corner of a nonee, which, for wanr of portala, waa obliged to be guarded at Bight by hired watchmen. Meanwhile, Dr. Heap, the predeceaeor of Howard : Payne'* prrdeceaaor, and aome ol I)r. ilea^'a fami- | Iy, altrrnaieiy appeared at veaaningion anu ai i nnia. Heportawere atirred op at Toms, that the United Htatea government would not uphold Howard Payne in putting the Hey to ao mnrh expenae for repaira, and that a proof of thia would, ere long, appear, in the removal ot Howard Payne, and the re-inatatement of Dr Heap, to whom the poat of Conrul belonged of right, and who had held it, under different Freaidenta, tipwarde of twenty yeara. I?r. Heap, itahonld be added, had, in the interim, reeigned hia place at Conatantinople, in favor of Mr Brawn, another of the powerful and, in tome hraachea, talented Porter and Bache family, to which he belonga; a family aa much renowned, through all ita ramificationa, for ita good fortune among the loavea and fiahen, aa a part of it haa been, and denervedly, in loftier reapecta At thia juncture, Howard Payne, finding that hie advaacea nad very largely exceeded the current account for rent, preaeed upon hia roval landlord for a aettlement He now, for the firat time, diacovered that the Iter?who. ere then, v aa alwaya aiceedingly mrdiif and pmernn*- hud hemme eraalre and ceremonious, though till perfectly respectful At length hi* highness wm taken ill, and coald not he era without great difficulty, and then but for a moment. Now came another change. The rumored prediction wna verified. It wa* announced that Dr. Heap wa* on hia way from America to aupemede Howard Patne; and that I)r Henp had openly declared, in Marseilles, that Howard Payne would he held personally accountable for the entire a?penae of renovating the eantUta. Ncmrtbalena, w ro NING EDITION?WEDNES the Bey signified to Howard Payne, and otliars, that his demand would be paid. Dr Heap took possession of his post, however, and Howard Payne departed ; and yet no payment was made by the Bey. It was considered as rather hard that, after paying rent for a house, which was never a house until just when he was obliged to Il>nV#> it. Inuinnr KootiiUi K?? f.%-narl saie of all the furniture he hai been obliged to bring to it iroin to far? Howard Payne should be compelled to go oil without the money due to liitn front the liey. Hut so it chanced. It was promised to be collected and sent after him ; and he. waited for it in Europe; but to no purpose. The Bey afterwards visited France, and engaged to give Howard Fayne a meeting at l'uris on the subject. hut broke his ap|>ointinc;it. Many Atn>*ricaai in Parts, aware of the circumstances, thought the IJsy's conduct on the subject there, nationally insulting ; uud they met together, anil wrote a letter to their countryman, offering to unite with him in representing the mutter to government at home, and olHiming redress through Congress On Howard Payne's return home, however, the nllsir was brought tinder the notice of President Polk, who immediately ordered the Bey to be applied to. For some cause, as yet unexplained, no attention was ;>aid to the demand. After the advent of President Taylor, the application was repeated, with emphasis. No answer arriving, a shi|vof-war was instructed to call at Tunis, and i not to quit there without one The Buy received the commandant with marked attention, and promised to reply in writing ; but he did not, until alter the vessel's departure. He then stated that he l??d ordered the money to be paid, because he loved the United States government, and not because be thought he ought to make the payment; or, though he had promised the repairs in question. his Moorish taste did not accord with the infidel one of Howard Payne, who. he thought, had caused things to be done to the consulate which might have been dispensed with. After this nimer lp f I lnnti) r* t p/immnvlnm VI'>??? ?? o t???l a Tunis, nnd his visit there. wherein the Commodore whs culled Admiral, unci fluttered out of Ins five wits, until almost wrought up to imagine himself more than a great " plenfpo," by the Bey and the Consul, may possibly afford a new chapter, and not the least curious one, in the history, at some future time. At present, it would extend the narrative, already too long, so unreasonably, that it may be better to postpone all allusion to it, further thHn to state that the money has not yet been pud to Howard Payne ; through what juggle, remains to he found out. Now, all circumstances considered, the above mentioned reply of the Bey is thought, by numbers, a very improper one. Though complaisant to fulsomeness in its expressions towards the United Slates, it is unprovokedly uisparaging to our late Consul there, against whom no complaint has yet been uttered, and covertlv reproachful both to the administration of Mr. Polk and of General Taylor, for so repeatedly pressing a claim which has been stated by both to have been previously examined and approved. Mr. Polk, while he admitted that he was politically unfriendly to Howard Payne, distinctly owned that he thought him entitled to redress in this matter; for though he would not keen him in offici?notin consequence of any fault while there, but merely because hewas a whig? Mill he saw no reason whv Howard l'ayne should be humbugged out of his undeniable right*, no matter how powerful hia opponents, whether('onsula or Beys. The fact is, the Bey should have been made to withdraw hia letter, and to pay, not only the principal of Howard Payne's claim, but interest and indemnification, which, take the whole together, would not amount to much, after all. Dr Heap loot already got some sixty or seventy thousand dollars of public money, during upwards of twenty years' sinecurism at Tunis, and this is the first case of any importance that has come under his management, and it ought to be carried through with a proper respect for the dignity of his government, and for the interest of his wronged Credecessor. It is hoped that it will prove to have een so ; but there Rre singular circumstances in relation to it, yet unpublished, which mav, ere long, emerge from darkness, and show it off more clearly At present, it is enough to add that the difficulty is very far from being settled.
