The Conservative Press and the Go?
Mi:. Editoi:: Some of the Democratic
newspapers in our State seem bent on
ruining us, by lauding Governor Cham?
berlain for the course lie lias pursued
since Governor. If they would take one
moment to reflect on the consequence of
such praise, they would certainly re?
main silent. Nothing will more surely
defeat Governor C, not only in the next
election, but his usefulness the balance
of this term will be paralyzed, by the
thoughtless praiso showered upon him
lately for simply doing what he promised
to do. Ho does not need this praise, nor
does he desire it thus publicly expressed.
It injures him with his party, and the
rank and file of them already begin to
say he has sold out to the Democrats.
He can only bo useful to us as an honest
, Republican, having the confidence of bis
party. It is his party that need reform, and
reform can come only through leading
Republicans. It would be a great cala?
mity if Governor C. should declare him?
self a Democrat. It bas been proved,
time and again, that neither the judicial
nor executive department of a Govern?
ment can contend successfully with the
legislative. The Governor can do much
good, but ho can't revolutionize the
Legislature, if hounded on and bedaubed
with fulsome praiso from the opponents
oV his own party. It's very unfortunate
to see sensible people giving expression
to such propositions as that Governor C.
can mako a successful combination with
the Democrats and honest Republicans!
Whenever it becomes known that the
Democrats wish Governor C. re-elected,
and are going for him in a body, from
that moment his defeat is insured, and
his usefulness destroyed. If he is a gen?
tleman and an honest man, he needs no
praise for acting like one; and if you will
go and nsk him, he will doubtless tell
you so; and if kept up, he will bo
damned with faint*oraiKO. S. C.
The Governor of Massachusetts has re?
fused to interfere in the matter of Pome
roy, the child-murderer, who is under
sentence of death. The Governor does
himself credit by resisting the appeals
of the philanthropists, so-called. If
capital punishment is to be continued in
civilized lands, Pomeroy should die.
The motive of the several murders com?
mitted by him is not understood fully;
but ho was sent to the penitentiary lor
one or two of them, on account of his
youth. Ho was pardoned out, and
immediately returned to his favorite
pursuit, committing one or two more
murders. Now he is sentenced to be
hung, and the benevolent people be?
seech the Governor to commute his sen?
tence. The Governor is right in leaving
him to his fate. The safety of society
demands thitt persons who commit deli?
berate murder shall bo put out of the
way, so that they can kill no moae peo?
ple. If they ore sent to the penitentiary
for life, they may bo readily set at
liberty by the Executive under some
error or caprice, and be thrown back
\ipon the world to take other lives. The
safety of society demands that some
criminals shall bo put out of existence,
and it is no satisfactory alternative to
send them to prison for life. The sense
of public safety is not satisfied as long as
they live. Order and safety require that
penalties for crimo shall be as nearly
proportionate to the crimes as may be,
and that those penalties shall be en?
forced, not only as just, but as examples
to deter others from the commission of
crime. If we are to shed a tear over the
wanderer, and lecturo him, and foed '
and lodgo him well, wo shall have a
plenty of murderers, and we shall have
many fino sinecures for rhapsodical
moralists, and a new department draw?
ing heavily upon the Government and
increasing seriously the burthens of the
Postm astbb-GkmebaXi Jewell. ?The
present Postmaster-General has won the
commendation of the press and public
by the vigilant and practical manner in
which he has superintended tho impor?
tant department placed under his charge.
He has shown decided capacity for the
office, and has done a great deal to im
f>rove the service and dispense with use
ess and expensive forms. He has lately
given a most thorough investigation of
the business of the post offices in the
large cities and of the postal car service,
and perhaps understands the whole mat?
ter better than any of his predecessors.
He has also examined the work of tho
elcrks under him, and ascertained the
duties performed in various branches of
the great department conducted by him.
It is said that he found burthens very
unequally distributed and compensation
unfairly allotted?some positions with
light duties having salaries attached to
them exceeding thoso paid officers who
performed very heavy and responsible
services. A high opinion is entertained
of Mr. Jewell's qualifications, and he is
believed to be earnestly desirous to have
justice done in all the branches of the
Eostal service, and to afford overy possi
le accommodation and facility to the
public. He is regarded as one of the
most competent men we ever had in the
general post office.
