can also be worked out at one dollar and
fifty cent3 per day by the settler or owner
of the land, but if it is not paid in labor,
it must be discharged hi cash, at the Trea

Our Jenkins has begun to extend his
operation to the Presidential court',, and
we should not wonder if we shortly had a
daily circular announcing' that Mr. Bud.

White House for five minutes before
breakfast on the previous da;r in compa
ny with, CoL Titus or Dr. Atchison r, th;-t
in the afternoon he took his. usual nap,
andto the surprise of his attendants, did
not snore that in the evening- he wrote
a letter, and used an adhesive envelope,
supplying" moisture thereto by an appli
cation of his tongue, and that Miss Lane
r took carriage exercise at her usual Eout
in a barouche. An approach; to this ia
being made weekly by strolling' anecdote
mongers, whose reports find admission
to the columns of papers that ought to of
fer better matter to their readers;. Frora
some motive or other, or probably frcm
no motive at all, but in the sheer enlores-
cence of folly,, these gentry are trjing- ta
make it appear an astonishing' circums
tance that President Euchanaa "does not
assume the airs anil state of a European
monarch- A few weeks ago we had a
long-letter in one of tiie country papers,
telling us of the writer's having: seen Mr
Buchanan taking' his turn at the common
wash-basin of a. relay house, having" re
fused the use of a private room, up stairs,
wiping" the presidential face with the pu
blic; towel, and tying- his cravat at tne
common looking"-giass.- The correspon
dent waa astonished, not that Mr- Bucha
nan, being a. gentleman of decent habits
and accustomed' all his life to cleanliness,
should' deliberately prefer to performi his
ablutions in a common wash-basin in pub
lic to making- them, m a privatu room ap
propriated to1 his. use' exciusiv.ely,.buti that
the President of the United States should
wash his face in company with, private
citizens- It was the equalitT and not the
publicity of the affair which struck: hini..
Ancther Jenkins has more recently
been regaling- us in the colums of the N-T-
Observer with, an account cf a visit he
paid to the said Mr: Buchanan at Wheat
land.. That such stuff as it contains should
find a place in a. journal making more
than ordinary- pretensions to gravity, is
of itself sufficient to suggest an enquiry
as Jo what we are coming to.. The letrer
itself iaapieceof dull absurdity,, and is
anTy worthy of notice for the light, in
which the writer, and we dare say, many
of his readers no doubt regard the Presi
dent of the United States. He is through
out treated as an exact counterpart of
iluropean sovereigns, and the broadest
surprise is expressed in every line at his
not imitating them- The dullard who fa
vors us with, his experience, finding him-
seir m .Lancaster, and finding- that Mr.
Euchanan was "rusticating,T at Wheat
land, felt himself bound, as dullards jren

would display under like circumstances.
The next incident ia an emetic of the
most powerful kindz - . v.
"Nothing about this, truly graat man is
more wonderful than tne ease and sim
plicity of his manners in private life- He
throws off all reserve, and makps hia vi
sitor feel quite at home, in hia presence.
VVniie we sat there, a rcuini, Laboring
man, walked in without a coat, and salut
ed the President, 'Good morning, Sir,"
and handed him some newspapers. The
rich broguer betrayed the man's nation
ality. Mr. B. replied with, a calm smile.
Thank your took the papera and the man
Think of an Irish laborer, in hia shirt
sleeves, approaching- the President in his
country house, handing him a bundle of
newspapers, and saying- "Good morning-.
Sir and mare wonderful still, think cf
the President saying iThank yon," and
We next learn that the' Sunday follow-
ing- tne above- astounding- circumstance,
tne same great man walked two miles to
church- "Hia feet,'r when he got there,
says the veracious correspondent, "were
covered with dust, anil, the perspiration
stood on his forehead-"" Think of the au
dacity of the dust in covering the feet of
our Chief Magistrate, and of the. perspi
ration in standing- on his forehead!
Moreover, when he entered the church,
"the congregation made no stir-," they
neither rose from their knees-, nor bowed
to him,, nor cheered himTnor in any other
way made fools of themselves, nor dese
crated the building so our traveler is
astounded. - "After church the President
walked devoutly," he adds, "and entirely
unattended through, the streets cf Lan
caster"" We do not pretend to know
what sort of a gait "a devout walk 13, cr
what sort of a train is expected to fallow
the President of the United States through
the streets of a country town on Sunday,
but we da know that the publication cf
such rubbish as we have quoted above ia
calculated to make both the President and
the writers of it laughing- stack cf the
public. There is just aa much flunkey
ism, snobbishness and folly d:splayed in
such, gossip as this, as in the most arrant
nonsense that ever appeared in any Court
Circular. Will these roving- blockheads,
who make a practice of cooking up des
criptions cf people's houses and reporting
what great men have for dinner,, ever be
got ta remember tfr.-ir it is almost inexcu
sable, in a foreigner even, not to knew
that royally confers, hi monarchical coun
tries, net only crUcial, but social superio
rity ; whilst the Presidency cf the United
States confers official superiority alone ;
that in the exercise of his functions the
President is the first man cf the Union,
but that as James Euchanan at Wheat
land he is, in the eye of the law, the
equal of the coatless Irishman aye, even
the equal c the Observer s correspondent
and in the Church a worthless deprav
ed sinner, whose best wcrla are dirty
