TO the Editor of the X icr.
I pnrnoivo from the loader of lust
week's "Citizen," tlint omo of ynnr
contributors linve stirred up tlio bilo of
the Editor, which overflowed in a torrent
of iiply, gtronjr-HCL'iiteil rjtitliotrt, nnd
caused him to appeal for nynipathy to
all "candid and enlightened mind,"
cn 'account of their merciless inflic
tions. Let us, in order to understand
the occasion and excitinjr cause of
this profuse) overflow of editorial ver
biage), cmiuirei what your contributors
havo dono whii.di 1 go nnushty as to
merit this Editor's special wrath, man
ifcatod with such virulonco as nppcars
in this article.
So far as I can perceive from n pc
rusal of tho contributions which I sup
pose ho refers to, they have presumed
to question tho infallibility of this Dan
iel they liavo had tho "cowardly"
and "mean" unpertincneo to contro
vert the truth of somo of his editorial
ttaUment, and have ventured to at
tempt to show by tho production of
facts and arguments, that some of his
.editorial charges and inferences were
not sustained by facts. Surely, both
publisher and contributors had a right
to prcsumo that tho statements of the
editor of a journal, nnd tho opinions
he advanced, constituted legitimate
topics of discussion and animadversion.
.How clso shall tho public ever get at
the truth? If an editor who through
his journal addresses his readers, gar
bles or misstates tho truth, what other
corrective or antidote to tho diffusion
,of tho poison whitdi is in all error,
havo we, but to meet the misstate
ments and brand them as falso coin.
,ero the evil is necompiisneii.- mis i
what I understand to be tho uso and
end of a free press. Error will be
overthrown if truth be left free to com
The columns of this editor have
teen appealed to, his statements quo
ted, and tho attempt made to demon
strate their incorrectness. All this is
certainly within tho limits of legiti
mate political discussion. But tho edi
tor asks for sympathy on the ground
.of persecution nnd nnonymous per
sonal assaults. His personal character
has been no further assailod than as
his publio conduct may be a reflection
of it. His self-assuming nnd dictato
rial courso as the conductor of a pub
lic journal, has naturally led to the
enquiry, who is this who plays such
fantastic tricks? "Upon what meat
docs this our Civsar feed, that he hath
grown so great?'' Ho uses his
editorial claymore with vindictive in
difference to the feelings of those who
presumes to differ with him in senti
ment about important issues. He
charges corruption upon n whole par
ty, because of tho dereliction of two or
three individuals.. He characterizes
tho Legislature of the groat Stato of
Ohio, whom tho people havo clothed
with their power for the time being, as
a set of asses arid fools, and by conse
quence, the people who sent them there
.as -their representatives, aro placed in
the same category. He pursues, through
hit columns, with untiring malevolence,
every one who crosses the path of his
ambition, or thwarts his schemes of ad
vancement. Ho speaks flippantly of
his neighbors and fellow-citizens as
"hypocrites," and "traitors" to every
honest, manly, and honorable principle,
-and yet, when these things aro referred
to,' and the truth, justice and propriety
.of his editorial statements and denunci
ations aro arraigned at the bar of public
pinion, by your correspondents, he cries
out, in the languago of persecution
"mean and cowardly assault.," &o.
The question then is, between the edi
tor and the public, havo the comments
of your contributor on his editorial
courso, been just aro they borne nit
by tho documentary facts has he
represented Republican men and meas
ures correctly? lias he published the
wholo truth? has ho given true repre
sentations of tho state of parties in
Congress? has ho been careful to give a
full and impartial history of the trou
bles in Kansas, that his readers nitty not
be misled, but well-informed on all these
Doints? This is tho issuo to bn met.
It is an immaterial point as to who your
contributors are. They are doubtless
men of like passions with himself, with
faults and failings. If they have sta
ted anything untrue; if ho can show
that they havo been unjustand uuchari
table in their comments and conclusions,
he commands tho means of pointing out
aad exposing any falsifications or mys
tifications they may have used. Let hi in
not resort to tho poor subterfugo that he
does not know his adversaries. I lie pro
ductionof names would perhaps lead only
to a war of personalities, while tho mi
portant principles at issue would bo lost
sight ot. In a contest of mere person
alities ho could no doubt acquit himself
'well, as no other document than tho "dic
tionary" would be necessary. It would
doubtless bo a refreshing change and va
riety in his columns to neo important
questions discussed in a logical, argu
mentative way, with all the epithets
thrown out, and lucts and arguments
lone relied upon to establish his points.
A mere personal war, or bandying of
epithets, would neither cdil'y his readers,
nor advance tho causo of truth, which
all honest and unselfish editors should
Lave in view. Tho mission of t he
press is not to doecive or mislead, but
to enlighten and guide in the path of
true progress. If all editors wero hon est
and truthful, and always careful to
give the truth, instead of their own
partisan and one-sided representations,
the press would be a real boon to the
people, instead of becoming, in the
hands of the unprincipled, the source of
iseord, and the fomcnter of thoso pas
sions which disgraco human nature
)Vith a right understanding of facts,
men would find thomse'ves much nearer
together than they aro at present. The
Jioncst of all parties would not find
themselves so fur apart, but common in
terests and common hopes would bring
them together, to promoto tho great
interests of a common country.

Is the Question Settled?
Thero is something irresistibly ludi
crous in tho confident assurances of tho
Democratic journals that tho slavery
question is . now finally settled. They
tell ns that thero Is no appeal from the
decision of tho Supremo Court; that
Congress cannot now legiidato upon the
subject of slavery, nor tho peoplo agi
tate it, nor parties quarrel about it; and
the announcement is prefaced by such
elegant expressions as, "Republicanism
knocked on the head," "agitation si
lenced," "niggcr-worshippcrsput down,"
Ac. Do these sanguino gentlemen for
get that all this has liccn dono several
times before? The slavery question has
been settled, we ennnot remember how
often, within a few years past. It Mas
settled in 18."0, by tho passage of the
Compromiso Measures, including the
Fugitive Slavo Law; it was settled in
1S52, when tho Baltimore Conventions
resolved that it tm settled, should stay
settled, and should not bo agitated any
more; it was settled in 1S5, by the
Kansas-Nebraska Bill; and now it is for
ever settled by tho awful voico of the
Supreme Court. And yet, remarkable
as it is, tho more the question is set
tled, tho more it disturbs tho political el
ements. The ghost of niritation will
not down, even nt tho bidding of Chief
Justice Taney; and nt every political
convocation it returns, and pushes men
from their official seats, in spito of their
efforts to banish the unwelcome guest.
To say that the decision, which chan
ges slavery from a local to a national
institution, will or can withdraw the
subject from Congress or tho political
arena, is to say a very absurd thing.
Tts effects will be exactly contrary.
Tho South, in procuring the vation
alixntim of their system, have made ev
ery man, in a measure, responsible for
its character, and rendered tho unlimi
ted discussion of it perfectly legitimate
and proper. It cannot bo put off now
with the plea that it is a local concern,
with which wo have nothing to do. It
comes home to tho "business and bosom"
of every man in the nation, and the
South h ave forfeited all right to com
plain of agitation. Pittsburg Cummer

The attention of County Auditors and
Township Boards of Education is res
pectfully called to tho following circu
lar, heretofore issued by tho State School
Commissioner, and indorsed by the
TO COUNTY AI'THTORS AND TOWNSHIP
boards op education.
Office of Commissioner of Common )
Schools, Columbus, April 3d. 1851. (
I ho great number of questions aris
ing under tho present School Law,
nnd the importance of having a thor
ough understanding, by its officers, of
the provisions of the law, an'd a uniform
policy pursued in all the counties, in
its administration, have imposed the ne
cessity of having some medium of com
munication with thoso officers, and the
Commissioner has gladly availed him
self of the Ohio Journal of Education
for this purpose.
All my official decisions and opinions
have been, nnd will continue to be, pub
lished in tho Journal; nnd it is my
opinion that County Auditors will be
justified in subscribing for a copy for
their own use nnd ono (or more) for the
Board of School Examiners: and that
Township Boards may order it for the
township clerk, nnd the clerk of each
sub-district, and include the cost of the
same in their annual estimate of money
to be raised in accordance with the first
clause of tho22d section of tho School
Tho copies so taken should, of eourre,
be kept on file in their respective offices,

Scarcity in the Northwest.
Tho Chicago Tribuno of a lato date
Even in our own State thousands of
men nhg usually havo corn and oats to
to sell, have been for a mouth past and
are yet buying from their neighbors to
keep their cattle and horses alive until
a few warm and pleasant days bring out
the new grass. All along the Missis
sippi on tho Iowa side, thero is the
greatest distress among farmers for feed,
and many of them, so great is the scar
city, are losing entire herds by starva
tion. A gentleman from Maquoketa
tells us that in that region by tho way,
one of tho richest and most productive
parts of Iowa cattle are dying by hun
dreds, and that farmers who hauled their
surplus to tho river and sold it in the
fall, are now buying it back by wagon
loads at three times the prices they got
for it six months ago. In tho country
west of Davenport, and about Iowa
City, tho same stato of things exists. A
Quiney, the demand for corn to take
over into Missouri, is much greater than
the supply; aud one distillery at leait is
buying grain at St. Louis and sending
it up tho river by the boat-load, to avoid
stopping work, as it would do if obliged
to depend upon home supplies. At Ke
okuk and Burlington the demand is very
activo aud the supply small, as it is, in
deed, in every other part of (ho West
from which we havo heard. Along the
St. Louis and Chicago road there is more
corn, but not half tho usual quantity.
Along tho Galena Air Line, Galena and
Chicago, tho Chicago, Burlington and
Quiney and tho Chicago and Rock Isl
and roads, hardly a crib full is to be
bo seen. In ono word, tho cattlo have
eaten up tho entire surplus of corn, oats,
hay, and in many places, tho poa
toes also. The winter has exceeded its
usual length by fully forty days; and
in those days the mischief bus been dono.
Chinese Sugar Cane. At a late
meeting of the Boston Historical Society,
Dr. Jackson, in reply to a question, sla
ted that the Chineso sugar cane ruisod in
tho vicinity of Boston, would not yiold
crystalline sugar in quantities to warrant
its cultivation. A small quantity could
bo obtained from tho plant, but a svrun
which was suitable for food or distillation
was readily obtained. The farther south

yields, Sq say the papers.

RICHMOND, VA., May 6.
A great freshet has occurred in the

There has been no such freshet since
IK 17. At Lynchburg, tho water has
risen seventeen feet, but is now falling.
A Significant fact. In the delmte
in the Ohio Senate on tho bill to prohibit
tho use of the Ohio jails and penitentiary
for the imprisonment of fugitive slaves.
Hon. Alfred Kellcy, heretofore extreme
ly caulious in expressing himself upon
Itepublican principles, defined his posi
tion, clearly and emphatically and ranged
himself in the Republican line. He said
"ho never had been an Abolitionist., and
could not fraternise with negroes but he
wished it distinctly understood that ho
was opposed to tho extension of slavery,
and would not bo forced to sustain that
institution either directly or by implica
tion. Ho wished tho pending bill to bo
changed so as to meet the issue directly
ami utterly prohibit tho use of our pris
ons to tho prostitution of slavery.
