In making this, our editorial bow, to the ciMzcns

and proper discharge of our duties. The position
of an Editor ia at ail times an unenviable one.
in our case it is peculiarly no. !- Unacquainted, in a
great measure, with the business and resources of
the county, we are neeessari'y dependant upon oth
ers for information, which, in rnny instances, may,
perhaps, prove incorrect. And when to this we add
the novel'y of the position, c-ur youth and com
parative ihexperienss. i: may tot seem sinu'ar, if
wa should approach theta.sk with aonie degree of
timidity and fear. We shall, however, strive f.tith
fal!y aal fearless'y, to discharge our duties to our
employers, 'to oar-party, and to the Public, that,

Till that h s jnst passed the IIoa3e of Representa

Measures of 8?0 had to bo again agitated the dy
ing embers of Nor'hern and Southern fanaticism
again to be f mnd into a flame. and all for what?
Asa balm to the imaginary wound on the honor of
the South ! .
Strange. passing sfrangc, that it was left for the
microscopic eyes of Mr. Touglass to discover this
awful blemish on the fair escutcheon of Southern
honor! For thirty years a Calhoun and a Clay
could gaze upon hat dark spot upon the honor of
their Southern homes, and never once setk itsre-!
moval. But row, that both have passe 1 away, the
mighty "giant of the West aiiscs the champion
and defender of t't-ir wounded honor! And to ac
complish his design, the Missouri Compromise, the
work of our fathers, who pledged theirhonor in its
support. made sa-crod too. as it is. by the name
and the f ltr.c of Hcxbt Clav, had to bo trampled
in tbe dust !
Nor was anyJhing of the kind sought by the
Poath. Mr. Poulass wa.s a volunteer, acting upon
his own responsibility, and to secure his o--n per.
saaal ends. The Admini-t'ration. to recover is los'
s rength. seized ho!d of the hobby, with the design
of nationalizing itself and fell back upon ' the lit
tle giant," who thus become at or.ee tho great ex
ponent and embodiment of the principles of De
mocracy, and tho,. parliamentary leader of tho
Pierce faction in the Senate.
And what, we may inquire is proposed to be ac
complished by tbh unasked for legislation ? Why
to settle a principle, they say, the right of the
people ia the territories to establish or prohibit
slavery themselves. They allege, that, under the
Constitution.Coagress has no power to legislate up
on the ques ion of slavery for the territories that
the clause empowering them to -make a!l needful
rules and regulations respecting the territory and
other property of the United States," do s cot
appty to this question. Now it would sc.ia very
singular, indeed, that the states could not do what
they please 1 wi.h their own property; certainly a
very novel idea, thai Congress has power to mark
lints, sell or give away any portjon of it exer
cise ualimitel sovereignty over it in every other
respect. -and yet have no. power to say whether sla
very shall exist thoro or not!
Eut tbe best evi lencc of tha meaning of a law.
is the intention of the persons who-framed it, to be
gathered from surrounding circumstances, as well
as from the la v itself. Let us apply this rule to
he Coi-s'i'ution, and what is the result? , The or
dinance of 1737. of. which the Missouri Compro

leading members of each, attending in both by

that thcs men would one day prohibit Congress
from legislating on slavery in convention, eari tho
r.ext. enter the legi.dativa halls and enact a law
establishing slavery in one- portion of the territo

There can. then, be no qaes ion as to the consti

Al'iy:.-", of "respectable talents and uncx sep-
tionablo moral character." All that has yet been
alleged against them has fallen to the ground from
utter want of evilencc, and they stand before the
country acknowledged to have been very seldom
equaled, anl certainly never surpassed, in the pol
itical history of this Commonwealth.
Onr candilate for Governor, the Hon. James
Poi-lock, as a profound lawyer and popular speak
er, is wuhout his superior. He was first elected to
Congress in 1833. to fill a vacancy, occasioned by
tho death of the Hon. Gco-te Fkick, of the 13th
District. He ran agaiusi. John S.wber in that Dis
tiict that usually gave 1200 of a Democratic ma
jority, and was elected by a large vote. He ran
again ia 1341 against Gen. Wa. A. Petrekiv, and
was elected by an increased majority. In 1311 ho
beat Allisox White, by over' 1400, thus having
rcvolufionized Lis District three different times.

Of Mr. LUrsif. our candidate for Canal Commis
