TIIX W.IK ON TI1K WEW!PAP5flW.
Ia a couple of Hues we are told by
K )iae poet, wlw understood human iir
'tin r:gae e'er fell Ibe bailer draw
With coodcplnlOQ or the law."
liia oooplet rosy be applied to the loli
ucianaasd public plunderers with bat
red reputations. An editor's pen per
f rsting tbeir vulnerable bides is the
"baiter" which givea Uieni "no good
r pinion of the law" of newspapers.
Oakcs Ames died owning the "newspa
pers. Boss Tweed has the.samo antipa
thy to the press that tha devil has for
.. ly water. No deg with the hydro
phobia ever had as much repugnance
1 -r water aa Irvine, the lobbyist, who is
i")w a fugitive on account of the wicked
and malignant newspspera. King, the
j 'rjured postmaster of the house of rep
s entativcs, and member of congress
elect, swears that the perverse newspa
pers are striving from day to day to
Wow to pieces his sweet-scented reputa
tion. In his last epeech, Henry Ward
Beecher turned up his saintly nose at
the press. Mat Carpenter, since the ex
posure of one of his peccadilloes, seems
to think the press has.an ee peclal grudge
againBt him, and of course a newspaper
ik his abomination. Poor little Bmiler
Colfax forgets his shame, his perjuries,
and his temperance lectures in whining
over the slanders of jthe hundred horee
jKiwer engine that forced him into re
tiracy and olwcuracy. Over his grog,
o!d Zack Chandler curies the art of
I'.'inting. The clang and racket of one
o'Hoe'a cylinder presses stings and irri
tates his pious soul. Since the press ex
posed that little episode between Pome
r y and York in the Kansas legislature,
Pomeroy is haunted by the newspapers.
He sees them in the rainbow and the
clouds. He smells them and tastes
them in his victuals, and hears iheir
villainous thunders in every Hwnd,
whether It be the croaking of a fngnr
the bray of a donkey. These battered
and bruised enemies of the press are
sending up a concentrated howl against
the newspapers, the author of all their
woea. They are clamoring for more
stringent laws on libel. The United
States press cannot be affected by the
enmity and viilitication of these corrupt
but failed and exposed knaves. The
newspapers have, no doubt, destroyed
these men, but it waB because they de
served destruction. Bo far as our obeer
vation goes the people have repudiated
every man'upon whom the newf papers
have made wr.r. In discussing this sub
ject the New York Tribune says: "So
W from a newspaper attack being necea
parity fatal to the prospects of a public
man, there is nothing that so nearly ap
proaches a blank cartridge, if its only
foundation is in malice. When the
great man himself furnishes tho am
munition, that is quite a different thing,
He cannot complain if his own words
and acts are used to riddle him. His
enemies may be awakened to fresh ac
tivity by baseless attacks, but Bueh as
saults simply strcDglhon him with his
friends and the unbiased public. Indeed,
the American people cling to their idols
with a rare tenacity, and with a devo
tion that nothing short of damning
proof cau overturn." The comments of
the Tribune are true. The Radical pa
pers make no personal war upon such
men as Thurman, and the Democratic
jiress treat with personal respect Bout
well, Anthony and Morrill, because any
attack on their personal integrity would
ouiy injure the assailant. The public
man who seekB to avoid scrutiny, or
shrinks from investigation, is Justly sub
ject to suspicion; and he who cannot
bear the test of a thorough discussion is
unworthy of public confidence. Men in
oillee and men aspiring to office are now
tested by the magnifying lens of public
observation. That tax of criticism, cen
Buro or praisa which has teen lafd on
greatness, h&3 been pretty rigidly en
f ireed in all ages and in all countries.
But of late years, in the United States,
where we have credit mobiliers, lobby
ists like Irvine and King, members of
r- ngress like Ames and Pomeroy and
Khumaker, municipal officials like
Twee J, and preachers like Beecher, this
tax has fallen more heavily than usuul.
Tho press and the people seem to think
that the privilege of levylog this im
post on public men has become a vested
rig .t, and that noman is entitled topub
1'C confidence till his character has been
duJy cudgeled to extract tho Iait parti
cie of dross in order to qualify it, by this
purgatorial process, for its future useful
ness and happiness. The men ?ho are
t wiing at the press have nobody to
tiame but themselves. Kothiug is o
injurious to a newspaper as a slanderous
an! unjust assault upon a good man;
i the increasing circulation and power
of the newspapers, and the retiracy of
th men they have exposed, is an unerr
i g indication as to the injustice which
has been done the knaves who sc ak to
avenge their shame by abusiug t
tho Tcskaloosa Jemisooe, traveled and
spofee tcgetber in North Alabama, ad
vocating the force bill, civil right, and
military rule. Hon. Burwell Lewis ex
posed Jemison as an irrjv.-ster, declaring
that he knew all. of the Tu'-kaloosa
Jemisons, and that tiiis dirty tool of
White was not a member of that fami
ly. Jemison afterward went to Hunts
Vilie, and acted as an agent for tho ne
gro immigration commission o( Missis
sippi. He tucceeded in deluding many
nejjroes into celling out their homes and
startirrg for Mississippi. He very kind
ly sold their stock aud effects at auction,
shipped the negroes to Corinth, and fur
nished them with bogus transportation
papers to reach the interior of Missis
f-irwi. He disappeared, and the poor
negroes were left in a starving condi
lion at Corinth, unable to go forward or
to return to their old homes. Wo are
glad to learn that this friend of Hon,
Aleck White is now in jail.
Thk very interesting account, which
appeared in the Appeal a few days
since, of the killing of George Miller
and the robbing of the Union bank at
Jackson, Tenuessf e, should have been
credited to the Jackson &un. This arti
cle was full of thrilling interest, highly-
creditable to our enterprising cotempo-
rary, and he should have full credit for
it, which we regret was not properly
given at the time of publication in the
regard to the situation in Herzegovinia.

Tne Morning Mar, an able paper pub
hhed at Wilmington, North Carolina
eays: "Now that Mr. JelTerfcon Davij
&as declined the presidency of the

with its email salary of four thousand
J. lars a year, the University of North

'ptiey with a salary of at least double

KtH-iation, materially assist him in his
