No one who takes note of events in he po
litical world, can have failed to observe the
good luck which appears always to attend on
the steps of a certuin clm of politicians, who
are distinguished by no pre-eminent talent or
merit, but who are mere bundles of negatives,
destitute in the main of Inequalities men
love, as well as of those they hate. With a
commanding phytiquf, or some' other lucky
accident for which lliey are undeserving of
credit, they commence business politically,
and, possibly, through (he influence of some
invisible puwer w hich delights in the fantas
tic tricks bf humanity, succeed in getting to
themsel ve high and honorable offices, where
in they rejoice alt Flunkrydom by their dis
plnys of suavity, and by tlic prnctic of "De
portment" ' which' would satisfy the exalt
ed Ideas of Mr. Turveydrop himself- '
The amiable gentleman who received the
nomination of the late 8th of January Con
vention, evidently belongs to this class, of
which he is a remarkably fine specimen.
Mr. Medill has been an office-holder for a
long series of years; but if he bas done any
thing more in the various positions he has
occupied rather than filled, besides receiving
his salary wi'h due official punctuality and
cultivating "Deportment," we would be
glad to hear ol it. If in any one of these po
sitions he has ever done any thing evincing
ability, vigor, or more than bare mediocrity
of talent, the world is shamefully in the da-k
on the subject, and should at unci? be en
lightened. We do not intend to Intimate
that he is unfit for the place for which he

of the leaders of that party, .The difforence
: between him and Col. Medill is, that he has
the tespect of all parties and the latter has
( not even that of h.is own. The former is an
honorable politician j the latter a miserable
. demagogue; the former loves his country

fortunately, is a position which any good-sized
im'aee of wood, with a respectable Private

Mr. Powell, a Miami, for the Legislature, to

Mr. Strut) le, did bo on the ground that it was

it was a similar course of reasoning which

Mr. 'Medill, we arc informed, was born in
the State of Delaware, but we have hitherto
been unable to learn the auspicious period
which made him a resident of Ohio. ' Be

there lies a gulf wide and deep, which, chiefly
from want of inclination thereto, and from a
solemn conviction that it would'nt pay, we
have not attempted to explore. . The invis-
blo spirit ol luck winch ushered him Into
the Legislative Mull, did not desert him on
ts threshold, but graciously elevated him to
the Speaker's chair.where he stoncc became
a bright and living example of that "deport
ment," winch appear to have been the study
moet delightful and most appropriate to hi
capacity. Tho h-xt year, 1837, his good
renins once more brought him to the House
ii revel in the enjnvment of "three dollar a
day, but instead of again installing hi in in
he speaker n chutr, assigned mm that "poet
of honor," the "private station." ' What.
brilliant things hemiiil and did, during his
brief career in the Legislature, wef know Dot
of. We will remark, however, that if the
hings done if the' green tree are to be judg
ed of by 'those done in the dry, the speech,
madB to the Convention, by , the present
Democratic candidate for Governor after he
had received the nomination, would lead us
to suppose that the World has' puttered im
mensely by the failure of the reporters
of that day to furnish it with ' full
and complete accounts of , his brilliant
speeches, and statesman-like performances
generally. ' . Had they done there duty, it is
mpo6sibie to tell how much rrol. uoodnch
would have been compelled to enlarge his
recent volume, in which he has given us the
most remarkable specimens of English and
In 1838, he wuselscted a (number or the
2Gth Congress, and, two years afterward, a
member of the 27th, from the ninth District.
He was a candidate for re-election to the
28th Congress, but his good genius intend
ing to give him a place in Washington, un-
er Mr. l'olk, he was detested Dy Eiias
Florence. Accordingly, . in, 1845, he was
made second Assistant Postmaster General,
and, the next year, Commissioner of Indian
Affairs, ui course, a plain, reptiDUcan,
Whig Administration could find nothing for
such a paragon of ."Deportment" to do, and
he was, therefore, permitted to return, to
Ohio, soon after General .Taylor went into
office. In 1850, he was choson a member
of tho Constitutional Convention, and that
body, with the sogaoity that always charac
terized its proceedings, was not slow to a
vail itself of its privileges by electing Its
most Turveydropish member, its President.
Tho grace, amiability, good nature and dig
nity, as Flunkeydom delights to call a cer
tain empty and solemn manner displayed
by him while in that position, were deemed
worthy of all praise by the 'general gender,'
which Is so easily imposed upon by every
vain and shallow appearance. At the hrst
election, held after the adoption of the pres
ent Constitution, he was elected Lieutenant
Governor, which office he now fi.ls.'
Having run through this long and official
career-long for so ordinary a man Mr.
Medill now presents hitnself,nnd is present
ed by his party',' to the people of Ohio as a
candidate for Governor. ' For this conduct
oh his part, and. that of his political friends,
we find somo palliation in tho Intrinsic in
significance of tho place to which he as
pires; but still, as the office has a command
ing title, and however restricted it may in
reality be, passes, outside of our State, for a
post of some influence, power and honor, it
should, thcrefore.be filled by one who could
give it the dignity and character it should
possess in itself. " The Governor should dig
nify tho offiee, if the office docs not dignity
the Governor; but we are greatly inclined to
doubt whether the Turveydrop sty le of "De
portment" will be quite able to accomplish
Bu't,we are not disposed to be captious.and
will therefore cheerfully admit that Mr. Me
dill is fully equal to the periormance oi one
of the gubernatorial duties, to wit, the sign
ing of notarial commissions. We must
stop here,. however; for we cannot consent
that the pardoninir power should ever, be
placed in the hands of a sojourner, in the
reaima oi oacneiordom, who cannot, . ther
fore. be supposed to havo learned the crafti
ness and artfulness of womankind. ., His ac
knowledged ... gallantry . . would, make it
difficult for him to believe. that, guile ever
conceals , jUelf in the .fair' forma of Ee's
daughters; and, indeed, we are not sure that
his ioug study and successful practice of
"Depormcnt" hss not made such belief ab
solutely impossible to him. . Imagine him
recoiyipg the 'petition ftf-ai'woepinewife,
with b,bo iti rms, nd supported byline
small, orying and disconsolate children! ask
ing the pardon bf one f the febra-striped in
dividuals who after years qf crime Is at last
public institutions. What resistance could
he offer to such an application! What
knowledge has he of woman's wiles, that
should enable him to withstand ber 'importu
nities! . None, whatever; the first time the
apron was raised to wipe 'away the tears i
which were Dot shed, bis resolution would
disappear, the petition would be granted and
the pardon signed. The Penitentiary wo'd
soon be a desolate and deserted plsce, and
society would be deluged by aninundation of
rascals. We hope the people will pause
before they confer the pardoning power on
one who is so certain, from bis unfortunate
want of experience and knowledge, to use it
so injuriously to the community. , " ; ,
' Impobtabt Dkcisiob.- The Court in Bank
on Monday made a decision ' that is well e
noughto consider or remember. It settled
the principle that under our law any perron
can, after the lapse oi six months from the
time of the payment, sue for, in action of
debt, and in his own name, and recover any
moneys that have been won, on an election.
The loser has six months to recover bock his
money. 1 If he fails to do so in that time,
any other person may sue for and put the
cash in his own pocket. ' This is now the
law. We say it is right. Betting on elec
tions is a treat evil, and if it is generally
known that anv bodv can sue for &. recover
money, won, it will do more. than anything
elso to check this prsclice. We hope the
press will call attention to this decision.
Let the great evil be put down with a strong
hand. u. a. Jour,
We will pass it along, but tossy that the
law is right is another question. We never
saw tho propriety of giving tho informer the
half or whole or any part of a," fine.,' Jl is an
inducement to practice very unholy passions
in nine cases out of ten.. - We think laws
can be executed without the aid of this prin.
ciple. It is much better in all such cases to
make it the special duty of some officer to
bring all guilty of violation of law before
the proper tribunal. '
Tbaqic Occubbebcs. The Philadelphia
PublicLedger gives the following melanchol
ly account of the death of a little girl, in the
town of Pittsgrove, New Jersey:
A little boy, only four years or age, sti an
gled his sister, under the following circum
stances; the child, a day or two previous,
had asked his father to explain to him the
modu operandi of hanging, and the parent,
to gratify the childish wish, unconscious of
the sad consequences of his indulgence.took
from his pocket a handkerchief, and, unfor
tunately, explained to the little ooy' the
manner in which it was ' done; the child,
imitative as most children are, took the ear
liest opportunity to put iri practice the less
on received by his father, nnd taking a cord
he fustencd it around his sister's neck, as it
lay in the cradlt,and attaching the other end
to a knob on the eunopy of. the cradle, left
the child suspended by it, which, when found
by tho parents, was 'sir -metal to death.
These sad lesson should he a warning to
parents airaiiiht aMowinir children to be
listeners on such occasions as was this little
boy; no doubt the subject of conversation

child was suffered to hour every thing that
was said, and its young mind depraved by u
recital of murder and death. ., .

From this state of gloominess, she - was
roused by a knock at the door, and a pleas
ant looking lady,' somewhat gaily dressed,
came in with a small bundle in her hand.
She introduced herself by saying that she
had just seen some pretty shirts at Mr.

Istcbf.stibo Legal Pecisiob The Neu
trality Liwt of lhe VnUeJ Stales. Chief Jus-
tico Tsney delivered an important decision
in the United States Supreme Court, a few
days ago, in the case of certain American
citizens, against Col. Thomaa J. Chambers,
of Texas. While Texas was contending a
gatnst Mexico, but before her independence
had been acknowledged by OurGovernment,
the defendant, Chambers, desiring to carry
on the revolutionary cause, sold large tracts
of land to the plantiffs title to which he
covenanted to make at any time when cal
led upon by the purchasers. ' The purchase
money was expended in equipping soldiers
for the revolutionary army; and after the es
tablishment of Texan Independence, the de
fendant received the thanks of the Con
gress of the new Republic, and was reim
bursed allthe expenses incurred by him du
ring the war, in the public service, includ
ing the prico of these lands. Subsequently
he was culled upon, to make title to-the
lands sold to plaintiffs, , which he refused.
Suit wrs brought to compel him to the per
formance of his covenant, and he set up in
defence the allegation tha the contract was
void, because in contravention of the neu
trality laws of the United States. The court
sustained the defence, deciding the fcontract
to be null and void, and those who advanced
the money were liable to be punished in a
criminal prosecution, for a violation of the
neutrality laws of the United States.
