an independent pkess a.vi> A partv pr.E3S.
We eb-r.- in independence.. Through our life thus far we
have n?t hesitat-d to speak the truth as it presented itself,
and enforce it upon the attention of others, without regard to
the probable influence ef such a course upon our intere.:- or
reputation. On most points of Political or Religious contro?
versy we have usually been in a minority among those around
_often in an inconsiderable and hopeless one. But thi
hi* mad*- no difference in our course. A manly independence
and nn open assertion of all important truth?no matter how
novel or odious at the moment?will at first subject you to
misconception and opprobrium; friends will bo cold nnd dis
tant, and enemies bitter and malevolent?but it will all work
right in the end. No man ever suffered pormanently tor ad- .
vocating unpopular truth with good motives and in a rieht
spirit. There is that in the spectacle of a man daring, de
lying, suffering evil for opinions' sake which must unerringly
command the ultimate respect fall honest heart-.
But for every precious gem there is a counterfeit?and for
Independence with the rest. There are men who make it a 1
pretext for abstaining from any good and persisting in every
evil. Many refuse to aid or unite in any religious, moral or
philanthropic undertaking, on the plea of Independence.
" Oh, blast your Methodism, your Temperance, your Orphan
Asylums!" says John Smith; " I don't go in for any of them
projects. I'm an independent sort of a fellow, and have my
own notion*." And so John excuses himself to his neigh?
bors and bis conscience for doing nothing useful, and living
on, a mere cypher and a cumberer of the ground. And hun?
dreds like him wilfully neglect the discbarge of their Polit?
ical duties?important and imperative ?inueh they be?on
the pretext of Independence, when the real rea-on is sloth,
selfishness, a base fear of giving offence, or a menu cupidity.
And yet there is one counterfeit of Independence which is
Still worse than this. It is the independence of the spy in m
pticst's surplice?of the pirate with a svsile flag (lying. Mosf
of our readers will be able to call to mind examples of this
gort?of men who, professing independence or indifference,
are yet the most venomous slaves of party. They come fawn?
ing round you with a plausible story or eirund, yet all the
while you know thut this is not their real purpose, but only n
cover under which they seek to steal upon and warp yon to
their ends. In such case, however averse to their objects,
you are even more indignant al the hypocrisy with which
they seek to disguise them. Their open advocacy might not
have sufficed to overcome your objections; but this canting,
stealthv. underhand manoeuvre moves your sternest indig?
Everr reader will have already felt that the portrait above
sketched is that of The Sun newspaper, drawn to the life.
Eternally prating of its independence, it i? the most bigoted,
bitter arid rancorous advecateof Loco-Focoism. Daily cant?
ing of its impartiality, it omits no opportunity to injure the
Whig Cause or blacken the character of its defenders. Where?
in has it even a decent pretext for its claim of neutrality '
Has it ever advocated one Whig measure?we ask but ont?
or condemned an act of the Loco-Foco party 1 Has it ever
given the Whigs u particle of credit for the great Reforms
which they have effected in our .State Government1?for the
abolition of the monopoly of Banking and of the Auction
busim'ss, their great reductions of the fees of Clerks and other
officers, their Reform of lie- cost of Legal proceedings, the
repeal of the law making .1 a.lges coordinate with Supers isors
in choosing County officers, Jfcc." All these measures were
strictly and radically Democratic?ihcy wero correction- of
flagrant politicu! abuses, which hail grown up under Van
Buren domination. The Sun could not oppose the measures
without committing-uicide. but it could withhold all credit
from their author-, and it lr-s done so.
On all qucstjous of open party collision, it has thrown all
the weight of its vast circulation nnd its jesuitical homilies
into the scale of Loco-Focoism. it has justified the Specie
Circular, advocated the Sub-Treasury, condemuod Small
Bills, (though its office is now a vomitory of One Dollar Bed
Dog notes,) bitterly decried Internal Improvement, steadilv
denounced the Registry Law and impugned the motives of
its advocates, while it has been habitually venomous on the
subjects of a National Bank and the Land Distribution. It
is hostile to a Protective Tariff. It has for years assailed
the course of the State Administration and its friends
with respect to Abolition. While the corps.- of our late
Patriot President lay unburied, it attempted to blacken his
fume by asserting, in the midst of its crocodile tears, that
his Administration would have been but a revival of the
principle- and policy of old John Adams. In short, there
bus arisen no public question within the last seven vcars, on
which i: has not turned its masked hatterv against the
Whigs and in favor of Loco-Focoism. Is not this perfectly
As regards the relative independence of avowed party and
honestly neutral paper-, we know from much experience
that the a Iva.'tage is decidedly with tho former. An opcnlv
party paper w ill, nine times ohi of ten. speak out its honest
thought; a neutra! paper seldom or never can. If it does,
it will lose subscribers at even- turn. Its only sate course
is to avoid political discussion altogether, and thus leave tke
most important topics wholly untouched. But the true,
honest course for an individual would seem to \k> not to
attempt Editorship until be has studied the great public
questions of the day. and formed his opinions upon them ;
then, in coming before the public, he should frankly, can?
didly avow what these opinions are. Having done this, be
is prepared to act with freedom and independence, and to
give to his arguments the weight of his known convictions.
Is not this right .'
KT" We heartily concur in the suggestions of " Fifty Dol
lars," that the raising of large sums of money for political
puq.oscs two ?r three times a year, and by half a dozen dif?
ferent organizations, is exceptionable, and subject to great
abuses. We hop,' the time win soon come when the raising
ot political fund* for any other purposes than the necessary
ones of rvHvm-rent, advertising, printing tickets. &C. will be
entirely dispensed with, [f that time has come alreadv, so
much the better. But how would our correspondent have

Private Correspondence of the F.ilnor.
Extract from a letter ?Isl-il Washington. April 53J.
The crowd of Strangers has greatly diminished
here, the lettings of the mail- being over, and most of the
contractors wending their way homeward. The contract*
? have been taken in many cases at considerably reduced pri
i cc?, the competition having been greater, as I am informed
by several old contractors, than they have known for sixteen
years. This is, of course, a matter of considerable saving to
the Deportment?desirable in the condition of its finances, as
left by the late Administration.
I Among the appointments which I do not recollect to im\e
i seen mentioned, are William II. Harrison Taylor. t# be
P. M. at Cincinnati. His appointment, being unsolicited,
I was a most delicate and gratifying compliment to the family
of Gen. Harrison, and is extremely popular in Cincinnati.

The Departments, I am told, are hard at work, endeavor?

The season is cold, wet and backward here: the lr?>es arx
afraid to put forth their leaves, and the peach and other
, iTchards are just beginning to powder their heads with blos
! soms. A gentleman of Portsmouth, N. H whom I met to
I day at Gadsby's, says the season i- nearlv as forward there

backward season here in forty vears. Yours, J. B. M.

tion in Little Kock. Ark. by his lecture* on chirogaomy, or
the art of divining mental characteristics from the hand?
writing. From the report of one of his lecture* in the Little
Rock Times, we under-tand the Doctor to maintain that
character may be as readily divined from the handv ruin" as
from the physiognomy, gesture* or attitude?depending, in
tact, entirely upon the same cause, and l>oing governed by
the same laws: and these law - are mathematical. After die
lecture, the Doctor proceeded to give a practical display of
hi* skill byjleciding upon the various st>eo:mens presented
by the audience. Many specimen* were handed in. a:id.

that, on zccn -.at of the enckwardness of the season, and the
fears entertained of tae stability ?f the new embankment*,
where the work ot' Enlargement has been going on the past
winter?especially in view" of the late protracted rain-the
Eastern Division of the Erie Canal would not probably open
till to-day. Farther west, the Canal was probably ready on
Saturdav, as will be seen by the following extract from a
letter to the Editor, dated

An Affray.?The Grand Gulf (Miss.) Advertiser of the
9th in-t. gives the particulars of an affray which occurred in
that place between Messrs. Turner of La. and Barnes of
Grand Gulf, in consequence pf a private misunderstanding.
They met in the street, and after several word- had passed
between then:. Mr. Turner attempted to draw a pistol, when
hu was ?tiut down a-most immediately by bis antagonist, five
buck shot ha--i:.g entered bis forehead immediately above the
eves, glancirsg over tho skull bone, and coming out in five
different places on hi? hen.!?notwithstanding which he is
said to be recovering.
Th? most profitable Railroad in 'he United States, it .
is -aid. is that from I'tica to Schencctady, the capital -tock
of which is $1.."?00.000. On thi* capital, the interest earned
ha- been l-'U per com. per year. Thi- road is seventy-eight
mile- long, and cost less per mile thur. any other road iu the
country. It has a light fiat raii. and i* restricted by law j
from carrying freight, r?< this would interfere with the profits
of the Erie Canal, owned by the State. It- stock is selling
in this City f*r $131 per cent.
Cleave Robbed.?A man 'to. the name of Jackson vied at
Cbenanga, N. ^. two weeks since, and on the succeeding
day was interred in the village grave-yard. During the night

ufactory for spurious coin were found on the farm of a man
named Odell, living on Palmer?* Prairie, in St. Joseph's

; This is the title of a thin volume of verses, some of which j
display considerable vigor and poetic case, while the most of ]
i them are. tu say the least, decided!-.- mediocre. The best in !
j the volume is the first. from which it takes its name: but i
! even this contains many halting lines and prosaic passages.
; A very noticeable defect throughout the whole is the ending
, a line with a preposition or an adjective or some totallv un- <
! ;mr,>r-an- w"rd. giving an air of feebleness and insipidity to I
J the verse. This is a fault unpardonable even in the merest
newspaper visitier. The author in his preface sav4 that the
pieces La-.e been composed while in the actual performance
? ot meebamea! labor, and written out in moments of relax*.
, uon, and al! of them are the fruits of time stolen from more
i important e nployments.'

Many a drum w-ns he?r':, a:>.:. d.s?\>r.!?v. note
As the drummer* were busy a* nailer*,
Cutting prices to nothing on each Kale lot
Going We-t fur :he I'ountry Reta-ler?.
They work, sway sharply fr?m morn to night:
Their heads and their tongue. briskly wsgga-^..
Telling merchant* how lew they 11 take ' ^"?ry*?r4.e.
And ot" their facilities bragging. '
Thev think, as they drum about the streets?
Puffing forth like an old fashioned bellows?
That the merchants they chase to tiieir various reotig
Will think they are d?lish fine fellurs.
Quickly and sadly the price wont down
To <i dollar.bu strain, to Sanduslcy :
Only leaving the Lines and the Agents in town.
Pockets empty, at d throats dry sad husky.
It '? nuts for the merchant, who has freight* to go.
To We drummed by these tons of their mothers,
And they -he, like 5am Hill,' when they teU thmbaaL
They vc had *tfers t? carry by others.
Let the drwataiers work thus for a month or sivvvfriy,
An.l for that time in low prices revel.
Anc by putting and blow ing they 11 all split their cheeh.
And half their Lines go to the d-1.
