A COSTLY ADMINISTRATION. – A graphic epitome of Mr. Buchanan’s administration is contained in the following brief extract from a Washington letter in the Philadelphia North American:
Three hundred millions of dollars will have disappeared by the 4th of March next, for four years administration of the government in time of profound peace with all the world. What is to show for this criminal extravagance and mal-appropriation? Nothing but a distracted country, a beggared Treasury, an enormous debt, and a [deficient?] revenue. These are the results of Mr. Buchanan’s single term.
