CASSIUS M. CLAY AND His ThUE AMER
It appears that this notorious individual
has re-commenced the publication of his
paper at Cincinnati, with the date as for
merly, at Lexington, Ky He has writ
ten a lengehj address, in hit usual style,
intended to arouse a feeling of weement
against those men nho nere instismental
in removing his press from learacky. He
acknowledges that he was the author (if
that very obnoxious article, in which
slaveholders were warned to "remeraber
that there were strong arms 4ad fiery
hearts and iron.pikes in the streets, and
panes of glass only between them. and
the silver and plate on the board, and the
fair skinned woman on the ottonian :" but
centends that this expression was only in
tended to assert that "virtue is the only
true basis for republics."
The Lexington Obserrer of the 8th
contains a full statement of the procee
dings had before the citN Court of Lexing
ton, on the arrangement of a part of the
Committee of Sixty, by whom Mr. Clay's
press nias removed, on a charge of riot.
Ot the part of the city, the lending facts
in the premises. were proved-that the
committee of sixty went in a quiet and
orderly ntanner, as the representatives of
the public meeting, to the oflice..the key
given ttp to them by one of the eitj ofli
cers. were inforniod by ito Mayor that
wvh;.t they were about to do was illegal,
but that ibe authorities could offer no op
position to them-that they proceeded to
take down and park up the press, &c.,
which was sent off to Ciuciliatti ; t1at
every thing w'as dotne in quiet and orderly
mtanter, the comn'itee themselves enfor
cing silence anld tite observance of order
by the crowd. We cannot give. as we
could n ish. the entire testimony taken o
the part of the defence, whic! beni-s hard
upon the conduct ofMr. Clay.
For the purpose of proving the effect
produced by the True American paper
upou the slave population, a host of wit
nesses were introduced, among them the
Mayor of the city, atl of whon . testified
that since the first appearance of the pi
per, a most marked change could be pet
ceived in the conduct of the negioes ; the
Mayor stated that baids of them had fre
quently since that tittte had marched past
his deor, with great noise, as if i defiance
of hi* authority, which they had never
done before ; all testified that since that
tine, the slates had become far inotY idle,
indepndJent,-disobedient and hard to main
age ; it was proved that more thefts had
been contmitted, tnure slaves sold to the
south, somo of them expressly on accot'nt
of conversations overhead about the pa.
per) than were ever before known in the
same length of titne ; it was in evidence
that in some sections of the country, nore
than one half the slaves had fire arms,
whicn was never belbre known ; that they
were itn the habit of assembling upon the
high road at late hours of the night in
groups, and tlipearded to be concerting
uischief-that in one instance an attack
had been made by several, upon twe
dwelling of a v; lite man ; and in anotter.
that a body of them had assembled with
their officers, marchitg rank and file, like
trained soldiers, brandishing their hemp
hooks ; that blaves were in the habit of
reading the paper firom the titme of its
comnmencement, and in one instance that
a slao had gotten it iromn the office of i's
poublicaiion, wthere lie had paid tet cents
for it; that t-e slaves were in the habit of
singing songs, wh. se refrain was, "we'll
soon be free-hurrah for Cash Clay
that they looked up to hint as able to set
thema free. atnd that htis paper was estab
lished for that purpose ; atnd finally, thtat,
in some instances, they considered them
selves as free as the whites, and refused to
do their wtrk.-These facts were estab
fished by a multitude of witnesses; and
there was nto one who, on htis oath, dissen
ted from the opinion that the True Amer
icatn was exerci'itng a most delemorious
influence upon the slave popujilatin.
After the testnmony had been closed, the
Court instrncted tfe jury, upon the law
of the case us follows:
"That if the Jury believe from the evi
dence in their cases, that the defendants eto
thtis prosecution, assetmbled with' the in
sent, and did with violentce attd fihree take
possession of the True Aetmerican oilee,
they are guilty of a riot, and they muse
fid them guilty, and assess theitr fine in
their discretion from one cent to one hun
The remainder of the procee-dings are
thtus stated by the Observer :
The defendants then asked tlle following

law and facts.

The Coure give the first instruction
asked by defendants with the qualificatiotn
that although not legally, the jury were

hneVdieid that ap hnicn nuisance
might generally be shaded. but that the
question aU a moral nuisance was left
somewhat in doubt.
The defendants then offered the follow

sion referred to.
* That il the jury believe that the True
American press a public nuisance, and
could not exist in its then present location
and condition, without a being a nuisance,
the defendants were jusutfiable in abatng
Which the Court gave, and the cause
went to the jury.
The definition of a nuisance. as given
by the best common law n riters, wis thn
read to the jury in the folluwiug terms;
"A common nuisance is an olfeuce
agaist the P blic, either by doing it thing
which tends to tie annoyance uf all the

thing which the coo-mun good requires."

WHO ARE GENTLE.MEN.
In our iutercourse with society, ne are

ihousatidsnfiudividuals who aspire to the
reputation of a gent leman, or ivho per

yet whose highest amid most comprehensive

tion, the doubtful inuendo-the vague
surmise-the meaning look and significant
nod, which are none the less fatal because
of their indefiniteness, and the security
with which such means are resorted to,
by' the assassin of reputation. In the
very nature of the case, one accused after
this sort, has it not in'his power to defend
his character. He kuows there is an on
favorable impression excited which is ru
intous to bis peace, anid, perhaps, his in
terests, yet he cainnot take hold.of the au
thor of the evil. The delamer has said
nothing, bui has insinuated more, than if he
had used the whole vocabulary of libel
Ious lenguage. He has concocted a sub
lima ted poison from the efl'ervescence of
all tmalignaiit passions, and has infected
the atmospliere in which the object Qf his
hate moves, with its fatal miasma, while
the hand of mischiet is concealed from
view. . And who may abido the trial?
Who may pass unscathed from the dread
contagion? No one. ..
As illustra.tive of the modus operandi of
the insinuating slanderer, we subjoin the
following anecdote. It is to our purpose.

advantage of this kind of musquito, over

they are at least a century ahead of the

to live without biting their neighbors.

NO TIME TO RF...
How often do we he-ar men excuse.
themselves from subscuibing to a paper or
periodical, by earyirg they have "!no time.
to read." When we hear. a man.-thus,
excuse himrsel(, we conclude he has never
'ound time .o confer any .substantral- ad-.
vantape, either upon his family, his cana
try, or himself. To hear a freeman thus
expr-ess himself, is truly humiliating; and
we, can form no other opinion, than that
soch a man i of little importance -to-sa-.
ciety. Such men generally have time,4o,
attend to public., ba.rbacues, -meetings,
sales, andIother. meetings, but they have
"no time to read."
They freguenily soend wiole. days-in
gossipping, tipplg and svapping horses,
but they have "no time io read.' -.'They

and the exchanges-but these men neve -
