Br reforonco to tha notice in another
column, it will be seen tliat our connection
with the citizens of this county as a public
journalist, ceases with the present issue.
Two years ago we tremblingly entered up
on the arduous duties necessarily incident
to the life of an editor, with many forebod
ings as to what would be the result of our
youthful inexperience, yet with a firm re
olve to faithfully and fearlessly discbarge
our duty. How far we have succoedud in
.-advancing the interests of the public and
giving tone to popular senlimcnt, alone ro
mains for the readers of the Gazette to de
During our short connection with the
press many and great are the changes that
have taken place in the publio mind. The
people have almost unanimously alienated
themselves from partisan organizations,
and condemned in a manner not to be mis
taken the huckstering loaders of both the
old parties. For the past twenty years the
' great masses of the people have had but
little to do in the selection of those who have
administered the Government, either in
its Executive or Legislative Departments.
Through the instrumentality of caucus
and conventions, a comparatively few men
have managed tccontrol the destinies of
this nation, and make its power instrument
al in advancing schemes of personal and
partisan aggrandisement. It is this that
has made polities a trade, and not a pro
fession as it should be for the roaring of
statesmen, but as a means of living, of
barter and traffic. It is this that has de'
moralized the public sentiment. It is this
that has vitiated the public morals. It i
this that has given rise to a political Clique
in every State city and town in the Union,
whose favor has been the passport, and the
only passport to honor and station. For
bearunce, however, is no longer a virtue

traffickers in politics have lost their capital,
and the people no longer recognize as lion
est men political stock-jobbers; but with
an eye siugle to honesty and capacity
enter into the contest with a full detertui
nation to renovate and purify both Federa
and state Uovernment.
To tiring about a happy consummation
of this object we have, for the past year,
devoted our time and talent. For this we
have received the most bitter anathemas
from all the opponents of this gieat politi
al Reform. .Persons for whom we once
entertained the warmest friendship, and
who, as we had every reasou to believe, as
warmly reciprocated, have, in view of our
position on great political issues, turned
their most deadly venom against us. We
montion this fact as an evidence of the crit
ioal and disagreeable position of the man
who independently undertakes the control
of a publio journal, and the paramount im
portance of receiving the most hearty co
operation of all those friendly to his posi
tion. The editor who boldly advocates
any principle that meets the approbation
of tho community in which he is located
should receivo tho warmost encourage
ment at the hands of that community, and
without such encouragement it is impossi
ble to sustain, for any length of time, an
independent press. Whenever an editor
begins to vacillate between two opinions
and parties, and maintains a kind of neutral
position in order to meet tho approbation
and receive the patronage of all classes, he
at once yields his independence as an A
merican citizen and frequently becomes
the miserable tool of all parties in order to
prevent bankruptcy. To hold your sup
port from an editor who is the fearless and
able expounder of your own views on great
and important public measures, merely to
gratify personal animosity, is a system of
revenge no honorable, and high-minded
man should be guilty of, and would be a
debasingly shameful sacrifice of principle.
There are some men, however, who are al
ways picking out flaws in an editor's char
acter for such men we have no sympa
thy. They only remind us of those birds
which resort to dead and decayed limbs of
trees to feast on worms. In the characters
of most men we shall find more good than
evil, mote kindness than hate and why
. ohould we pick out the flaws, and pass over
sterling traits of character? We hold this
to be the true doctrine; to portray real
goodness and hold it up to the gaze and
admiration of all, while we suffer the evil
to remain in the shade and die. With
these remarks we commit the Gazette to
the charge of our successor.
But we cannot lake a final leave of our
patrons without expressing our sincere ac
knowledgments and heart felt thanks for the
kind and generous manner in which they
have received our humble efforts. It is
indeed with feelings of deep regret that
we bid them adieu and did we not be
lieve that we could do ourselfand the pub
' lie greater good in another field, wo would
not for a moment harbor a thought of sep
aration. By their generous assistance we
have been enabled to place the Gazelle on
a firmer foundation than it ever before oc
cupied, and leave it one of the best paying
county offices in the State. May our pat
rons, one and all, the American Party and
our successor meet with naught but pros
perity on to the end. May thore always
exist between them a perfect unanimity of
feeling and action
"A union of hearte, anion of hand, a union of
SUtet none can sever,
A nnlon of Interests, a anion of band, the "liuu-
Lin Union" forever."
... TOM. S. SLAUGHTER.
It is the custom, as well as the pleasure
of the Editor, in taking charge of the col
umns of a journal, to point out to his pat
rons and readers the course intended to be
pursued by him in the future. With this
custom we most cheerfully comply.
The position of an Editor, surrounded as
he is at all times with all the responsibilites
attached to the journalist, is not to be en
vied, however easy and light the task may
appear to Contributors and Amateur writ
ei s; his tasks are arduous and laborious,
requiring all his time and talent without
relaxation; therefore should we err at any
time it will be the fault of the hand and
not of the heart.
In taking charge of the columns of the
Gazelle we have only to say that so far ns
oar talent and ability is concerned its past
history shall be an earnest of the future.
Unlike others we mnke no glowing prom
ises but leave tho Gazette and its culumns
to speak for itself as the future rolls back
to the present.
The Gazette is one of the acknowledged
leaders in the great Amorican movement
that has swept over the length and breadth
of our Common Country and now stands
deservedly high in the estimation of the
friends of the new party. Being one of the
small band who has labored incessantly for
the past ten years to bring about the A.
merican movement, our efforts shall not
bo relaxed in the hour of triumph. At no
lime in the history of our happy republic
have the people become so awakened to
the necessity of keeping alivo the memo
ry and teachings of the early fathers of
the only Republic on earth, while ev
ery stratagem of our enemies has been
exercised to its utmost extent to al
lay and lull the energies of a too confiding
people. We therefore assure our readers
that the great American cause shall lose
nothing at our hands.
In all realtors of Government and State
policy we shall maintain and advocate a
liberal policy, keeping up with the pro
gress of the age. Corruption in high pla
ces shall find no favor with us but shall be
held up to that contumely and scorn which
they justly deserve at tho hands of the peo
ple. We shall endeavor to make our papor a
welcome visitor, not only in tho Counting
house and work shop, hut also of the family
circle, and in so doing we ask the willing
support of all lis old patrons. Let them
cluster around it and cheer it with their un
divided palrouage and we shall most as
suredly prosper. With these remarks wo
launch afloat and set our sails to tho breeze.

Gov. ITIcdill's visit to lUillcrspori.
Editor Gazette: On the 10th inst.,
our quietlittle village was honored by a
visit from his excellency Gov. Medill.who
was ostensibly, I am told, on a piscatorial
tour to the reservoir; as a matter of course
we all paid due attention to his Excellen
cy and tendered him at once the hospital
ities of tho village, when .we were inform
ed by his Excellency that the true object
of his visit was to organize a Sag Nicht
Lodge in our benighted corner of his po
Accordingly all things being in readi
ness at the dead hour of midnight, or
thereabout, in company with the Gover
nor wo all repaired to the residence of our
distinguished fellow citizen, R. where wo
were all formally installed into all the arts,
mysteries and devices of Sag Nichtism.
It was, indeed, Mr. Editor n truly inter.
esting occasion, there were just seven of
us present, to wit: Messrs. L., V., II.,
K., M., W. and R. Tho Governor and
our fellow citizens here will recognize us
all at once, but for the world I hope they
won't expose us.
The Governor gave us a very grand and
impressive locture upon the necessity of
rodeeming the Buckey State this fall, and
I have no doubt from the length of our
faces that he is fully satisfied that it will
be done. He exorted us to persevere in
the good work until the election was over.
I have no doubt wo shall.
His Excellency promised us another vis
it between this and tho ides of October, B(,
which time you 6hall hoar from me again.
Who would for ono moment have enter
tained the thought that the Governor of the
State of Ohio would have stooped so far be
neath the dignity of his station as to travel
from neighborhood to neighborhood or
ganizing and opening Sag Nicht Lodges?
Yet we have undoubted evidence of the
fact and hope our friends throughout the
County will keep us posted as to the where
abouts of Hie Excellency when on these
Midnight Excursions. If ho regards this
business as honorable and becoming the
dignity of a Governor, why does he not
come out in the face of the noon-day sun
with his Sag Nichtsism and not have the
poor, petty, half starved hangers on of the
Red Lodge Clique posted on every corner,
denying that "the Governor" haa anything
to do with the Sag Nichts.
"Oh shame where is thy blush?"

We call the special attention of our farm
ers to the advertisement of T. P. Gallup
in another column. Mr. Gallup has es
tablished himself permanently amongst us
and many of our country friends speak
highly of his Reaper and Mower, Horse
Rake, Corn Planter, Horse Hoe &o. We
cheerfully recommend our citizens to visit
his warerooras over J, S. Snyders steam

We were about to write an article upon
the press, its iuflnence dignity and duties
when our eye accidentally caught the fol
lowing well written disquisition in the
columns of the Cincinnati Daily Timee.
It expresses our own views to clearly and
is so well spoken that weadoptitand
commend it to the perusal of the readers of

In a Republic like ours, so organized, so
governed, and with such institutions, more
than in any other land, the Press has
high and sacred mission to perform. Every
journalist, in entering upon his duties, as-
snmos a weighty responsibility and a pre
cious trust, which no consideration should
prompt him to abuse. Few men connect
ed with the American Press, we belive,
fully realizo tho immense influence they
exert for good or evil tho great strength
with which their position invests them to
form and control that Public Opinion
whose decision is the law and the symbol
of the laud.
How absolutely necessary it is that the
journalists of our country should not only
understand, but put in practico, the right
principles of their profession, regardless of
iutorest, prejudice or passion, it needs no
voice of ours to say. Nor have we a call
either to point out the defects of American
journalism which possessed of many mer
its far superior to those, will, in time, no
doubt, correct themselves, and gradually
disappear, as increased ago bringeth us
more varied experience and added wis
That our Press is sufficiently free in the
general sense, cannot bo doubted; but that
it is dignified enough, particularly in this
region, may well bo questioned. Indeed,
it is painful and mortifying to observe the
amount of personal vituperation, gross
scurrility, and even undisguised vulgarity
with which the columns of our co'.empo
rai ies teem, only too often, when their po
sitions are controverted or their weaknesses
exposed. The cause contended for seems
forgotten, the principle neglected, and a
lexicon of billingsgate -exhausted which
would almost put to blush the very fish
women who gave it currency, and made
obscenity a trade. Fact, argument and
thought are laid aside that the Editors of
different newspapers may indulge their
fondness for filth and falsehood to its full
est degradation; and in this way their
readersare compelled to become the sharers
in a violent, personal quarrel, remarkable
only for the bitterness of its conduct and
its freedom from every shade of decency
or manly sentiment.
Assertions are advanced and reiterated
which, if only half true, would richly en
title tho parties charged to the contempt of
every honest citizen, and a residence in the
Penitentiary. Not tho slightest scrupleis
observed, and the vulgar war goes on un
til blackguardism be out-blackguarded,
and contempt becomo too heavy to be long
This is a dire evil, at which the pooplo
wonder; which self-respect regrets; and
even the guilty ones must sure despise.
Let it bo roformed at once, say we le'
every Editor assume the posilionof a high
toned, honorable gentleman on the tripod
as well as in private life; resolved that no
vexation, invective or mis-statement shall
induce hira to descent to tho kennel and
hurl mud with an unworthy foe, who will
thrive on mire whon contempt will leave
hira powerless and crushed. Tho chimney-sweep
fears not soot, nor does the
scavenger ftand in awe of stain. But the
gentleman Editor of a dignified journal,
should derate his mind to hisposition.and
his conduct to his post; and while he should
not hesitate to expose the crime of the
highest citizen, he should fear to injure the
poorest man alive. Ho should be an ex
ample unto others, possed of heart as
well as mind, honesty in soul as well as
act, conscientiousness as well as cautious
ness and reliance on himself. He should
so guard his character and make it clear,
that its imputation would be a self-returning
blow from the hand that meanly struck.
He should have that surest of safety, that
best of protection, a consciousness of
right and conviction of duty, done, which
no slander can impair, and no falsehood
take away. He should be unto all as to
himself, true and corageous ; then ev
ery change of circumstance or reverse
of fortune would still find him Man.
This condition of affairs is greatly to be
desired, and we hopo our Editorial breth
ren will join in a reform so essential to the
proper dignity, influence and respect
which should belong to every American
journal, roiicy dictates a departure from
the course heretofore so disgracefully pur
sued, even if pursued, even if pride and
that sense of tonor which every gentleman
carries as a priceless treasure in bis breast,
did not enjoin it as a duty, too. Hence
forward, let blackguardism cease to be an
Editorial accomplishment, and vitupera
tion a substitute for logic in a cause es
poused! Let Editors show themselves in
their columns what it should be their con
stant aim ever to remain, the proudest
title of the World, Amorican Gentle
