Cuurrics ties Jit tits Unis, we find a letter from Pert an Platte, of the Sill i list., containing a clear and detailed account of tho recent events in Ilayli, which have resulted in declaralions of their independence (list by the Spanish pint of tho island, mid subsequently by tho northern provinces. It a ipears that early in March, t tin hl.icks in the western part of the island collected together two as l irgi! armies as lliey rnulil lo suppress the insurrection in the ; the army of Port au l'rince under the den l.tdet, in iicliiti up. on llio city of St. Domingo, and lhat of ('ape Ihytien under (Jen. I'lcrrnt, marching upon Port an Platte. The first of theo armies was redu. ceil by ilcfcrtiou to about ?(!()() men before it p.isscd the frontier; it was there confronted by the army fiom St. Djiiiuiho, and after two or three contests was compelled to take refuge in Azun. Here on the !);h nil. it was a'ticked by the St. Doiningaiis, and compelled t irecross the frontier, rcinain'ng however entrenched in a 1 1 in u n t .ii 1 1 near Azua. Here it is said 1 000 of its men wore taken with tho small pox, and for want of care and attendance many were dying daily. In tho meantime hero had been a naval ciioaireuient in llio Itiy of Azua, In which the Haytien llotilla, of three rr four sail, had been driion a-h'irc with great loss by an equal force of Douuigans, one of whoso vessels was a pilot boat manned by Frenchmen. Tl.cso triumphs resulted in the declaration of the independence of the Spaniel) pi rt ion of the island, under the uamo cd' the'Doniingan Republic. The second army, sent against Port au Platte was tin more fortunate. After n eeling a clmck from the troops of Mocha and Santiago under (inneral Titus Salceda, (a planter who had been placed at the head of the insurgent forces,) it was driven wuh great loss from before Santiago on the !!() h of March. A baru remnant of l lie forces reached llic frontier, where they com. tnunicated their panic to the reinforcement . sent to them from Cane Havlieti. and the united , parties refused to oley an order tn march again ., Santiago.

LUDICROUS POLITENESS. 111 sincerity and extravagant adulation often betrays peoplo into tittering the ninsi ridiitilous absuidilies quite iiiiiiiteutlnnoHv.

A m ud ot honor, in Irauco being asked tho hour by her royal mistress, obsequiously re plied, 'What 011r Majesty pleases ;' tin an swer even less definite than that oftbo cow boy, who, after looking up at the town clock, said it was ' only half tin inch eight.' A nuise wishing to give a very polite an swer to a genMeui in who inquired after the health of a sick baby entrusted to her rate, said, ' Oh, sir, jlaltcr myself the child is going lo die. A nobleman told a visiter thai he had been talking to him in a dream. ' Pardon 1110' replied thu other, ' I really did not bear vou.'

' Fire ! gen- llonten ol the r rench giiaids I exclaimed the, Fnglish captain. ' No, my lord,' replied the Fiench lieutenant, ' wo never firo first.'

Every new developement at Washington shows ihe inipoi lance to thu nation of lhat change in tho administration of llio Gov ernment, which is proposed by the Whig parly. Tho wretched policy that has been pursued, for sonic years past, of making the Piesidenlial office a means of ro-eleclion of its incumbent, or this perpetuation of a dynasty, call upon every truo American lo rally for tho principles of republicanism, and upon tho measures lhat can alono sectiro the correction of tins crying evil, ruinous lo pub lic morals, nnd destitictive to the nation.

Least of all can hope bo centred nn the present Exe cutive, who is bending every influence of his station, and sacrificing every principle and custom of his high office, to insure another term of service service ! ! another term of wild misrule, of ruinous dominancy. Throughout all tho attempts tit changes which have been made within these last twen ty years, public opinion lias pointed lo Hen ry Clay, as the man of all others who, if elect ed, could correct the growing evils, and bring back thu nation to its foinier prospeiity. lint, iinfnitonatelv. many of ihein who thus confessed thu ability of Mr. Clay, as a Presi- lent, seemed to be gove. ned by doubts of hisstrenod, as a candidate, and thus the C stienoth and efficiency ol an opposition was wasted, ant! the nation left to suffer the mis - ties of continued nisnl.-. The euors of, I opinion touching the .vi'l.l.iiitv of the can- lidale have been collected, and the whole voice of the Whig pa-y from every section ' of tho Union lias hem heard in favor of the ivailuhillK as a candidate as well as great ability as President, of HcMiy Ci.av.
