. FOIST A OK LAW.
The Western raper Trnde, a
journal devoted to the interests of tho pa
per trade 'of the West, says truthfully,
that "the law In regard to newspaper
"postage adopted by the last Congress
"has long since proved It sell not only an
"outrage upon taw publishers suit the
"public generally, but also a failure so
"far as. the expected increase of revenue
"to the government is couosrued." Fol
lowing this assertion is a brief enumera
tion of some of the objections to the law,
but the one that hat the most force, with
us Is aot mentleaed, and that Is, that this
law hai a tendency to crush out of exist
net all small moring dally journals like
the BiiLiKTiN. 'Under the old law wc
could Bail the Uui.lktin after the edi
tion was was worked oft" and it would
reach our subscribes outside tho city
on the lines of railroad centering
here on the morning ol its publication ;
but, under the now law, postage must bo
paid on each day before the paper U
mailed, and this, we cannot do jo Cairo
until thopostofllcc has been opened in
the morning Of the day of Issue. In this
way our paper is delayed in Cairo one
day, and subscriber who obtained tho
paper under the old law in the morning
or day it was Issued cannot now get it
until the next day. In tho large cities a
man Is provided by the postollioe depart
ment to each oflieo from which a mora
lag paper Is Issued, and it is his duty i
weigh ant" stamp the 'edition as soon as
it is printed so that it tan be put into the
mall on the morning of its publication ;
but to a little dally morning paper ofllce
no aaail man I supplied, the postollleo
mtu of the town wherein it I published
cannot rcnaln in the office to receive the
edition of the paper, and tho null men on
the mail cars cannot, under the law in
force, receive the editiou on the mail car.
The consequence is, as we have said, that
the small dally morning Journals cannot
get their editions into the mail until
hours after they could bo got in under
the old law, and thu ihclr ttubrcribcrn
outside of the place In which they arc
published arc compelled to drop oil' or
put up with very stall local and mercan
tile and other news.

The Democrats and other antl-ltadlcals
In this part of tho country desired the
defeat of Mr. lUndall iu his candidacy
for Speaker of tho House of Congress,
because they believed his success wonld
deprive them of the use of the aisl for
midable weapon that can be employes!
against the KeimUUe.ii party next year.
They knew him to be a saiar; kmIiIht,
a high tarlA wan, the apologist or many
of the Jobs of the Washington lobby, an
Inflationist, and the especial favorite of
we very wont elements el the Demo
cratic party, and what was still worse, or
the Radical rlnga that surround the White
Mouse. With thts kuewldg came to
the Democrats or Illinois the belief tbat
Mr. Jtaudall must be kept out of the
speaker's chair, or else the Democracy
must keep Its peace about the corruptions
of the Republican party, and, for consli-

Wc are not unaware of the fart that the
Herald is one ol the fiery journals of the
South one of the "touch nnd gooff" pa
pers. We also know how Very prono
are the politicians of the South, who act
with the Herald, to get up an high stilts
and tower above ordinary humanity ; but
we have a hope that tho Herald may be
enabled, by an cxcrcUc of great self-denial,
to conclude that Gov. Ames may re
main in his "b fllce aud he d d to him. If
the Herald aud its friend h do come to
this conclusion, they will, by their self
denial, by losing an opportunity to
make 11 brilliant political mistake,
kcept out ot tlie hands of the
Radicals t the North a club
that may Injure the auti-JIndicals beyond

and its friends can't come to this conclu

indulge in the luxury of the impcach

now existing iu the country, carry out

scheme ol the Mlvshslfpl ullriu tbe
Vicksburg devotee or the Fiery I'urnacc;

peachments for political offenses arc not
often applauded hi this country, even
when circumstances seem to justify them.
The mei) who indulge iu them llnd them
to be eomnthlug else than lu.vuiles to bo

fense ol Hicli'patiiollcacllon in relation to
them. This in a fact the inipeachcrs of

of them who aru still living: and events
will prove this with great force H Hie
Deniocrats of 3IUN-ippi set Ames out

From the moment the trial commences
the Democratic party will be put upon
the defensive, and all the eloquence of all
our orators aud writers who wag Demo

will fail to convince the jxjoplc of the
North that the impeachment was not
