With this week's issue, we close the
third volumn of the 'Tiiur. Nortiikhx
:n." For three yeans, this journal has
dene tattle service in the great Republi
can host of northern freemen, and has cn
dcavored to contribute its share to the
unparalled glory and miccos which has
crowned the efforts of that party. K.stab
lisdtcd under unfavorable circumstances;
with but & meagre, prospect of support ;
the great principles to which it was pledg
ed yet unsustained by a permanently or
ganized, and consolidated political party ;
and the proposition that we could succeed
in the establishment of a great northern
combination of true patriots, taken from
all the old parties, to resist the growing
intolerance and overweaniug cupidity of
the slavery propaganda, yet problematical
we fiud that a warm and generous support
lias been extended towards us from a large
proportion of the Republicans nf this
county. That the North kknku has ap
preciated these kindly remembrancers from
time to time extended, is gratuitous to af
firm; and that it hasendeavcred to deserve
the etitem and confidence of its friends,
and the respect, at lcat, of its enemies,
is too well known by its readers to require
I'npropitious as the times arc fur our
Mibseribrrh1 to renew their subscriptions,
we hope none will be detered by the strin
gency of monetary affairs from promptly
forwarding us the dullan in adranee.
iladly would we send our paper to every
house in the county gratuitously, if we
could command the capital for so doing
but circumstances, beyond cur control, re
quire of us to charge all our subscribers
for the paper, and to have it adranet.
If you have not the cash, bring on the pro- J
due-, anything that wo can use. As usu
al, wo shall thi3 week,-mark all our sub
scriber names whoac subscription has ex
pired, with a crofs ( " X ) to denote
that their timo has expired. We hope
next week to be cheered with an overflow
of the almighty dollar, and for once, to

view of the case, we arc now disposed to

the language of Holy Writ, Out of his own
roonth will we condemn him. Liberal and
aadid min is are generally inclined to
look with some allowance upon the errors
and mistakes of others ; but when we see
a man accusing others of gross aud inex

If it was eu great a wrong for the Re
publicans to nominate and support a man
"for Prosecuting Attorney who was techni
cally inclligible, was it perfectly innocent
for Democrat to nominate and lupport
one for an office which they never expect
ed him to be qualified to fill? The only
difference iu the two cases, was that nei
ther the Constitution nor law requiring
the election of a Prosocuting Attorney
contained any express provision requiring
that officer to be a member of the Rar,
and that it was only by reference to cus
tom, and tho rules of construction, that
the court arrived at the conclusion that it
was requisite ; whereas, in the other case
it was expressly required by law. And fur

And jc we never thought of accusing
tho democrats of any llagraut wrong in
this matter, nor have we felt any necessity
for seeking political capital from such a
source. We have no doubt that the sim
ple truth is, that iu both cases tlw3 nom
inations were made without sufficient in
vestigation, without charging intentional
wrong upon either; and we only allude to
the fact now, and make tho compari
son, for the purpose of showing up, in its
true light, the tote, mean, contemptible
dihone$ty of the Free Prc$$, in attempt.'
ng to fix i charge of intentional wrong
upon the Republican party, for an act,
it' which he kiotr his own party had been
qually in the fault, and with less excuse.
It happens in this cas"e, as in almost every
other in winch our opponents have assail
ed the Republican party or officers, that
they have themselves been doubly guilty
of the offences that they charge upon us.
The writer, true to the instincts of his
own depravity, basely and cowardly insin
uates that the county officers have been
guilty of crimes which he knows he dure
not charge upon one of thorn explicitly.
He insinuates that the officers ha,ve been
engaged in conniving at the escape of
criminals; and in compounding felonies.
We call upon the Free Press, if he is
aware of the existence of any such crimes
as he insinuates on the part of any of tha
county officers, to couie out and make a
diftinrC specification of the charge, and
name the guilty individuals. Como pir,
no skulking or sneaking ; " no dodging or
flinching upon this point." Give u.i the
particular instances in which the offences

The Pawn ot n new Political Era.
The Ruffalo Erprcs has an article on
this subject and we have noticed similar
articles in many leading pajrs of late
squinting to a general re-organization of
old parties, the concentration of the prin
ciples of freedom and the non-extension
of Slave territory, in one solid organiza
tion North and South. That the leading
ideas of the Republican doctrine are fast
gaining ground in the Southern States,
there is abundant proof in the buhl advo
cacy of them in several of the Southern
States, where but a few years ago a man
would have been tarred and feathered,
and drummed out, over the Missouri
Compromise line, if not mobbed and kill
ed. Now, not only is individual opinion
and frco speech tolerated there, on tho
subject, but several presses are bold and
outspoken on tho subject, and arc amply
supported in their course. The Exprcs
" In view of these facts it is no wonder
that John J. Crittenden, John Hell, Hen
ry A. Wise, and other Southern statesmen
who ranked among the most earnest
friends, a.s well as among the most gallant
supporters of Henry Clay, should, like
himself, be forced to tike ground against
the policy of the South, and to throw the
weight of their influence in the opposite
scale iu the scale of that party which
has struggled so long and so successfully
against the crushing prejudices of aouli
tionism and sectionalism.
In this the dawn of a new political era
is distinctly visible. Its c .o.ing may not
be to-morrow, nor tho day after, but come
it will none the less sure; and we doubt
the proposition made at Philadelphia in
tho Republican Convention of i860, that
the next National Republican Convention
be held at Richmond or Charleston, may
be realized to the letter, without a shadow
of personal danger. Tho future influence
of the Republican organization will no
longer be coufmed to the Frco States. It
hart already taken hold of the popular
mind at the South, in Missouri, in Virgin
ia, in Kentucky, in Tennessoe and Mary
land, and before the next Presidential
contest it must obtain a foothold ih the
trebly fortified citidelsof Slavery iu South
Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi,
IfoiiI.Mana ami Texas. Events have tend
ed since the discussion of the Kansas
question was lir.t introduced, to national
ize the anti-Slavery sentiment of the
North, by opening the ryes of the South
(rn people to the injustice, inhumanity
and enormity of their demands and ag
gressions. Ihtroit Adrrrtistrr.
