Convention of Editors.-An Alabama
paper calls upon. the editors of that State,
to express their views upon the propriety
and expediecy of holding a Convention,
to improve the mranners ofeditors, and lor
other purposes. Whatever may be ihought
of Cotton Conventions, Political Convenl
tions,Moral Convenitonsotn entions of
any kind, there certtinly can be no hject
ion to a general Convention of tlik kind,
throughout otnr count ry. There is Pgreat
roema for improvetit in the manners of
the conductors ofhe Press. Some editors
do not lesitate to call their brethren., with
whom they have a political ditfirence, or
one of any kind, liar<, tiols, or scoundrels.
They apply to thet.any vituperative epi
thet, which their fancy may suiggest. It
is a common charge for editors of one party,
to say, that those of the other party, ar
bribied-bought uip. This in bad taste at
least. Such sweeping charges should not
he made, unless they can besubstantinted.
When the con:iluctors of ie Press descend
to low, personal abuse, it is a pretty good
proof that their argunent is exhausted.
If they have no regard fior their readers,
they should entertain sullicient self-re
spect, not to resort to such seurrility and
vile blackguardism. A Florida editor,
not long since, speaking oh the quarrels of
editors, says, that they can much better
employ their time, in quarrelling with their
delinquent subscribers. We are cf his
opinion. We recommend to the craft,
not to spare those of' their patrons who, by
their conduct, show that they nerer intend
toI'ay their printer'b hills.
Matrimonial Dificuly.-A Northern
paper states, that the celebrated female
teache, Mrs. Etmma Willard, who was
married last year to Dr. Yates, has sepa
rated frotm him, and tas. returned to
Troy, N. Y. ; with the intention of again
connecting herself with the Femtale Semi
nary at that place. Dr. Yates is repre
seuted as a cruel husband, a debauichee,
and an infidel. Doubtless,, Mrs. Willard
found it easier to govern one hundrcd and
fifty girls thatn, one man.
