Tuesday Morning, Feb. 22, 1859.
To the Readers of "The Press."
I linve determined to appear before tlio
public na editor of Thk I'rkm, in which
capacity I design, so far as lies in my
power, to continue under perhaps some
what more favorable circumstances a
career pretty well, I think, identified, in
the public mind, with myself, in the course
of a connection of several years with nn
other journal in this city. To my friends
and those who feel that somcthino; may
be done to me as to one who, while he
bus been guilty of enough of orrors ami
oversights, has not faltered in respect to
integrity of purpose, it is proper for me to
say that I sincerely desire the success of
this enterprise, and have u pecuninry in
terest in the same.
I do not deem it an act of unpardon
able vanity in me to assume that, although
my name has not been laid before the
public in connection with the editorial
department of any newspaper, thero is an
intellectual entity which the people of this
section of the United States understand
as belonging to myself. There is known
to be a human being, not destitute of qual
ities that distinguish him from others of
his species, who has done certain things,
badly enough, perhaps, but so as, in the
minds of many, to give a 'sort of signifi
cance to the name which he bears. All
men possess the right to emerge, at will,
from pre-existing states of impersonality;
and at my resolution so to do, at this time,
nobody has any title to complain. It was
through no fickleness of temper or sug
gestion of private interest on my part,
that the relation that had so long and, on
my side nt least, so pleasantly, existed
between myself nnd the rentiers of the
Cincinnati Commercial, came to an end.
The motives under which I acted were
such as it was difficult to resist; and on
their occurrence, I felt as one who is sud
denly called upon to seve a long-estub-lished
intimacy, that had grown into a
compact and enduring friendship. .Such
relations are the basis of obligations
which no mnn has the right wantonly to
disregard. I was told that it would be
wrong for me to leave this city or to aban
don a profession in which it was said
I had made myself useful to my fellow
eiti.ens; and my own convictions testified
to the justice of the suggestion. I have
not, therefore, needed much persuasion to
induce me to re-appear if the expression
is correct as applied to one who never
had nn actual appearance in connection
with a public journal in this city; nor do
1 fear that I shall be any less welcome to
my old friends hereabouts, in the columns
of the Press than I was in those of the
Commercial. To myself, my course, dur
ing past years, has appeared to be that of
an honest, earnest man; nor am I aware
of any change in my own character cal
culated to render it otherwise in time to
To my many friends of the press, in
this and the neighboring States, who, on
my retirement from the Commercial, stxikc
of me nnd my course in terms of approval
far too -flattering indeed such thanks
ns one so poor as I am in anything else
can bestow are due, from a heart that is
more grateful than it can find words to
To Our Friends and Patrons, Present
With some conflict of feeling, between
hopo and fear, we present you the first
number of The Press. It is no4, neces
sary to say that it does not como ui to
your idea, as it does not to ours, of what
a ne trspaper should be. As it is, it simply
shows a foundation upon which something
may be built, and a place where may be
registered a nromise on our nurt. ns wn
can gain control of the means, to make it
as perfect as posnible. . We feel as if the
wond wiw all before usl that there is here
a field for such an enterprise, that our
right to enrter in is perfect, and that, by
iy;ing as w'eTl k'h 1 ean, wo may attain to
a fitra to Occupy aud enjoy. And even in
view of our weakness and the strength of
thoeo with whom wo shall conic in coin
petition, we feel that,
1 The race It I not always got
By him that swiftest rnus ; .
Nor tho battell, by those peoprll, i
J Bat shoot with loosest guns.
The Press is not very magnificent in its
dimensions, for several reasons.
First, wo desire to make a paper for
the people which, being within the
means of everybody, shall circulate every
where. We beliovetlmt a well-conducted
journal of this size, at the price we ask
for it, can bo made profitable to its pro
prietors as well as advantageous to the
public. It is easy to enlarge, when there
are motives to justify it; and we hope to
no so situated ns not to be at all disturbed
when the nocessity for enlargement shall
Secondly, its proprietors are not rich. I
They are forced to content themselves to i
, . ... i
do business upon a small investment until
the ability is acquired to employ a larger 1
one. It is tho opposittM)f prudence to be-
gin extravagantly. Reasonable people '
approve the conduct of him who com -
mences as he can continue, and makes no i
pretentions to means that he has yet to
accumulate. To begin larger than i.ru-!
. no I I
flence will justily, and thereby create a
necessity for a subsequent contraction, is
an act of folly tho effect o( which is not un
frequently a misfortune..' Hesides, it seems
almost inevitable that a newspaper should
have its period of infancy. All the really
successful establishments in the world
have started from small beginnings; nnd '
every nttompt within our knowledge to
avoid the njvparently inevitable day of
smtill things, lias resulted either in abso
lute failure or thnt which, in respect to
pecuninry loss, was its equivalent.
Thirdly, wc o.-e not anxious to number
mero sizk among our elements of success.
We do not believe a hugo expanse of pa
per indispensable to attractiveness. Size
and weakness, so often associated in other
things, are not always so entirely insepar
able in our public journals as their pro
prietors arc willing sometimes to suppose,
There is ndiseaseofenlnrgemont to which
newspnperdom is subject, one of whose
symptoms is an incapacity to distinguish
between quantity aud quality. We feel
the full force of tho fact that we are en
tering this day into a competition with
several gentlemen of enlarged views, nnd
in feet and inches great superficiality;
and yet, while we humbly hope we are
not envious, we confess that we ore not
unpleasantly ofraid. We do not dread
thnt the Press will not be large enough to
hold per diem all that is worth the know
ing, so much as we do our own capacity
to put the best things of the day into its
So far an it is in the power of the con
ductors, the Press will bovari independent
journal: acknowledging no umpire in mat
ters of opinion but reason ond common
sense. With faith, except so far as it is
founded upon tho conclusions of the in
tellect, wo have nothing to do. In respect
to men, tho object of our exertions will
be tho advancement of tho most worthy.
We have an instinctive hatred of corrup
tion and usurpation in government, which
we do not expect to be able ever entirely
We intend to employ our best exertions
to make the Press a decorous journal one
that shall bo in every respect fit to be in
troduced into tho family, nnd thnt p mnn
not conscious of public nnd flagrant ilj
desert, shall fear to open and peruse.
There will be no attempts to make it a
minister of public justice, or a dictator of
tho proceedings of courts or the verdicts
of juries. Lengthy observation has con
vinced us that the public press has its le
gitimate province in civilized society, that
its usefulness depends upon its success in
keeping within the proper boundaries, and
that when it nssumes to do the work of
the legislature, the judiciary, or the pub
lic executioner, t not merely paralyses its
own strength, but becomes a miisni.ee that
deserves to be abated. We do not, there
fore, intend to accompany our indepen
dence with any degree of impertinence,
nor, as the manner of sonio is, make up
for its absence by on occasional display
of tho insolcnco of irresponsible power.
We are opposed to all personal puffery,
and, of course, to all perstinal detraction;
and while we shall not hesitate to expose
wickedness and laugh ut folly, shall lie
desirous to avoid doing injury to tho pri
vate feelings of any mart or woman.
Since tho well-known Awful Gardner
seceded from the ranks of the Prince of
Darkness, and sat out on Vis journey to
''kingdom come," thero hasi been no event
in the religious world so dijcidetlly sensa
tional as the recent conversion of tho blue
eyed or gray-eyed we really forget which
man of destiny, tho renovjicd William
Walker of Niuaraguan notoriety. Air.
or Cionoral, as the case may bo Walk
er, has, it seems, taken his religion in the
Roman way, and has been received into
the Holy Cutholic Church at Mobile, with
all tho honor The Washington I'nion
devotes a leader to the subject positive
evidence of its importance and proposes
that, in caso tho new "religious" should
arrivo at the eminonce of canonization, he
be known as "Santo (lulielmo de los Fil
libusteros" Saint William (or flulliver)
of tho Brigands. Thero are those who
believe thero is a hidden moaning in all
this: we hardly think it is hidden.
Thr flag on the top of the Capitol has
now thirty -three stars.
There will undoubtedly be errors and
failures in tho distribution of tho Press
by tho carriero, for a few days ; such
things aro unavoidable) to a new under
taking. They will bo remedied ns soon
as possible; nnd if reported at the office,
will be attended to. Several persons'who
Lave left their names at the office have
not becn SU(Ecientir particular in giving
their address, nnd may suffer some Incon
venience on that account.

with which the inventor of this engine hna ad'
hercd to his idea of generating power by means
of heated hair employing for the purpose
machinery not very dissimilar to the working
parta of a stoaui engine. We remember the
notice that began to bo taken of the matter in
the scientific journals of the country, as early
as 18.13, when it was thought hy many that a
Uenuin success had been realizod. The in-
vuntion, howovor, did not at that time, acquire,
nmljprobalily did not deserve, favor ns a prac
ticable motive power. In 1852 Mr. Ericsson
brought out his celebrated, but unfortunate,
caloric ship, under what wears bound to sup
pose favorable auspices to ensure success.
The result did not putisfy the. expectations of
tho parties interested, and the experiment
must be said to have becn u failure. The pre
sent engine indicates important changes in his
views, and correspondin g changes in his mode
of adapting his means Vi the end desired : and
although it would be t'junfo to pronounce such
completeness attained ns to rondor its employ

It would not be easy 1o avoid n conviction of
its value aa a standing motive power for ma
chinery. Uosides tbe calorie) engine, Mr. Ericsson has
brought out, of his own invention, other ma
chinery of great value, Tbe Ericsson pro
peller, as it is called, is one of his devices,
lie stands high on the list of inventors of the
railway locomotive; and, like the celebrated
Marquis of Worcester seems to have indicated
in advance of the realization, improvements
that may be made in almost eery branch of
industry to which machinery cau be applied.
The Hon. William X. Peck, elected last
fall to the office of Judge of the Supreme
Court of Ohio, took his seat, and com
menced the performance of his official
duty a few days since. We remember
Judgo Peck as our "illustrious predeces
sor" in the sublime position of first, sec
ond and all the other clerks in a country
store far in tho interior ol" New England,
more years ago than wo care to enumer
ate. He studied law in this city, we'be
liove, with Hon. Bellamy Storer, and set
tled at Portsmouth, where ie has acquired
a fine reputation ns a jurist and a judicial
officer. If ho dispenses justice in his ma
turity with aiTiiHich vigor and acuteness
as he did cider brandy nnd enlico to the
mechanics and their wives of a Connecti
cut village, in his youth, ho will have
earned tho praise of having acted well
his part, in which is all the honor."
Mr. Vcqh has, it seems, taken hold of the
subject of the National Diplomatic servim with
a strong hand. The following paragraph from
the New York Tribune, gives some notion of the
radical character of his propositions. It is to
be hoped, though scarcely to be expected, thnt
the monstrous humbug that he has attacked will
full beneath his efforts. We should not wonder
if he was a little appalled at the magnitude nf
the job he had undertaken, when looked at in
all iu imwhnlesomo entirety :
The Diplomatic service was yesterday dis
cussed in tho Senate, when Mr. I'ugh, of Ohio,
moved to transform the present system, by abol
ishing all regular Resident Ministers, and sub
stilting occasional hnvoys, to be sent tor spec' .
purposes, which must be declared by the. P ' ,
dent in nominating them. The salary c' cnt.J
Envoy, Mr. I'ugh proposed, should bo v,i .
$IO,Oll a year, and Unit of his Secret ",.f I "
gation t $S,U0 He also moved tr , abolish th
olhce ot Consul denenil ; but, as f ( ularmed at
himself for having proposed a reform 0 ra(lipb,
and so truly democratic, he pre-ntiy took
sum to abandon tt, nnd myr ilw(cni, a MUk
and-watcr modifleation of the present sysIcbi
lictween the two motions, Mr. Mason, i Yu"
glina, made a brief sjieee'n.
Annexation of Cuba.
Whenever the uneasy politieias,of Uin ifuhed
States have becn desirous to Slew) , .licce f
territory belonging to some other iVation, the
first thing in order has been to atteio ,,t to a'ltirm
the people upon the soore of the df iIlger to the
United Slotes of having the posse. ii(ms u B for.
eign government so near our bow nduries. Gen
eral Cass, who has lived all ).lU life, when at
home, within point-blank dista nt. of thec.mnon
sbot of a British garrison, wr M terribly afraid of
the consequences to ourlibo' rty na a tUnt KOrt
of thing, of the possession of Texas by tho
British (iovernmcnt: ant',, ftt tho time of tho
agitation of the annexation quostion, made
speeches of interminab le longitude upon that
idea. The same notiot , i presented in Congress,
and by prints H the Southern interest, iu respect
to Cuba. Cuba is U key to tbe Uulf and in
the hands of poor alecrepid Spain, may work
terriblo damage to our oomwerce, if not prove
destructive to our very existence as a nation.
Upon this subject "Mr. Cwttickdkn has reoenly
made a sjieech In the Senate, which is sjiokcn of
by a correspond t of tho Now York UVibuue
as follows t
Mr. Crittondejn ridiculed the idea that the pos
session of tubs,, or the possession of any other
island on the gtohe, was essential to our National
ne'y. We had iiroteoted ourselves hitherto
Without it, and we bad been growing more pow
erful day by day up to the present hour. We
wcro now mnro ablo than we ovor were to' tako
earn nf ourselves on the sea and on the land,
nnd it was an innult to be told that wo were in
danrcr unless we addod Cuba, or any other
country, to our existing territory.
This is the anniversary of him who al
most by the common consent of mankind
has received the glorious title of Father
of his Country. Grateful recollections
are nn appropriate tribute to his memory,
nnd such other observances ns are proper
to call to mind his great civil nnd military
services, and aro oonsistent with that love
of . public order which was so striking a
feature of his character. It is not merely
in the United States but wherever fervent
patriotism and disinterested public ser
vices find admirers, there the name of
vsr.uii.tr. TV Amil.wi.'. in trvunurvil HS tt
household word; and if America had
given to mankind nothing but this, she
might still claim to have added to the his
tory of human excellence its richest contribution.
ParnrscK VnRntsn ox Timidity. The Cin
cinnati Enquirer promised to give a "black
list" of members of the House, who voted
against the admission of Oregon, but cau
tiously restricts it to the northern members.
It would hardly be safe for an official of the
administration to put a southorn member in a
black list. Southern democracy has a special
dispensation to do as it pleases on any ques
tion. (0. S. Journal.)
The Richmond Enquirer has recently de
voted some attontion to the Cuban bubble out
of which it takes the wind completely. It de
clares the acquisition utterly impracticable ;
tho thirty million hill a delusion ; the idea of
making the Uulf of Mexico a mare rlauium,
nnd Cuba the gate in tho face of tho other is
lands in possossion of the European powers,
absurd ; and the acquisition of Cuba even if
practicable, with three quarters of a million
of free negroes, and surrounded by free is
Innds undesirable, 0. S. Journal.
A highly interesting divorce caso is pending
in the Pennsylvania Legislature. The husband
petitions, declaring thnt his wife has been too
fond of a gay West Point Cadet; nnd tho wife
and tho wife's father reply, declaring that her
husband has maligned her, and that she has
not been too fond of tho Cadet ; which last
statement, the Cadet himself confirms. O. S.
It is said thnt in the ill-starred town of
Northampton, Mass., there live on one street,
thirty-five bontttiful nnd accomplished young
Indios, individually nnd collectively willing
to get married. Just to think of the vast
amount of female loveliness thnt must there
fall inevitably into old-mald-hood, or be de
veloped into school-inurtns I The considera
tion is appalling.
