Those ivhetighi with dog must use
d.fi play. Jfo. Journal.
When we first took charge of the Ed
itorial department of the Banner, we
promised that our columns should never
be stained" by the admission ol any arti
cle of a lw or personal nature. --Huw-
ever much we may desire to meet the
Journal upon it own ground, and to
fight it with its own weapons, we must
refrain, for the reason that we are stop
ped by our own promise and further be
cause the arrows shot by that canine
concern, and winged with all the force
which they could give them, have fallen
li armless at our feet; and lastly because
we cannot forget, as men that we owe a
certain tu.m.r.t of respect to the society
in which we live, and that the favorite
game of the Journal and played so skil-,
fully called "dogs play," is beneath us:
that men should secretly engage in that
me is common but that men should
o far lose all respect for the public and
themselves as to come out bold and op
enly and proclaim it to be their inten
tion to act the dog, is beyond compre
hension unless imbecility now, as she
has before, pleads for them with all her
tongues. We have never desired to em
broil ourselves in a personal controver

vulnerable part let them blame their
own rash folly ia provoking it.
We are good naturad to a fault pro
verbial for our evenness of temper but
jet this aareniiy of disposition cannot
protect the man w ho grinds our toes
with the heal of his boots, from a blow.
It it a principle early instilled into our
mind by education, it is a doctrine born
with us, and which has followed us
through life, that there was no wrong
for which there was not speedy ven
tfr.ee n insinuations made against ua
that we could not repel with utter con
tempt. We shall repel these base in
inuatiuns in a spirit of dignified can
dour, cnee we djre hope that they may
never again be reiterated, if they are

Our cotemporaries not content vrilh
pouring the vis's o 1h;"r wra'.h upoi. Dr.
elborn, and attributing to him the
worst of motives, foiled & disappoint
ed in their desire 4o hunt him down.
They turn (because we 1iave had the
hardihood to defend Dr. Welborn) and
thus ipraks of ourselves. "Such shuffl
ing and evasion might be expected from
those who were "softs" before the Au
gust election, and who now pretend
there is no tuch party, in order to be
restored to the arms of love and embrac

we iranlly acknowledge, that we had
net expected such conduct from the edi
tor of the Banner. Do they think thus
to fulfil the bargain into which they
have entered? If to they certainly do
-net give the people of tke democialio
jrty credit for half the honesty and in
telligesce they possess. "
If the editors of the Journal in say
ing that we were both "soft." before the
august election, ment honestly to tell the
truth, then we must inform them that
they have failed in so doing.
The resident editor, and the writer of
this article, (and we wish no more silly
blunders upoa this hear1,) was a
soft previous to die August election, vo
ted the soft ticket, is not ashamed of it;
and hereby authorizes the editor of the
Jurnal to tell it in every place, if it be
any source of happiness to them. The
other editor we are informed the Hard
ticket, and has ever been a firm and
consistent Democrat irrespective of hard

And now, that the lash is applied to your

editor Itinerant became alarmed for the
condition of the Banner, and came up
here to regulate the concern to deal
oat "stronger apJ Aurder" blow t. Sir,
you are mistaken the blows of which
you complain so pitifully were dealt not
by the itinerant but by the resident tiitor,
and if he alone can make you squall so,
what under the sun will you do when he
and the "Itinerant" both got hold of you?
Why, "your hide won't hold shucks."

concerning the Journal; and for it, holds

seek aperionai ayjicuity be is at your
tervice. You can have it to your hearts
content. The public controversy com
menced with you if you wish to con
tinue it, we havs a few more "Aard"
blows in reserve.
The editor of the Journal stems to be
surprised at the "Aard" doctrines pro
mulgated by the "sofln itinerant editor
of the Banner. It by "softisni" he means
that we are fond of paper money, or
that we preferred the election of the in
dependent ticket for governor, and con
gressman, then he misrepresents us.
We are not enly opposed to a National
Bank, but opposed to ShinpZasters of ev
ery .description. We gave our support
togovernor Edwards, and the nomina
ted ticket generally because we wished
to see our party kept together. We
would do the same under similar circum
stances. The union of our party is our
most cherished wish. But if by "toft
ism'" he means that our devotion to prin
cipos it greater than our love for any
man, or set of men, then he correctly
represents us Soft ism and Hardism, we
consider, clap-trap expression just in

. ANASTATIC PRINTING.
The London Aik-Union for Feb
mary, describes a recently discover
ed method by which books may be
reprinted with wonderful rapidity.
It is a kind of etching. 'Ihe print
ii)t' ink is transferred from the print
ed page to a metallic plate, and the
urlace not covered by the letter is
bitten in who acid, and the letters j
me thus lelt prominent. The plait
can ol course, be inked with the
common roller. The plate maybe
formed into a cylinder. A page ot a
i.ewtpuper was thus etched, & made
ready lor the pre.-t in less than ter
niiuutes the zinc plate thus engra
ed being capable ol producing 20,00
'mpri-fcsions, and then of being ei
Slaved ad infinitum. This pioces,
it as perfect a." is described, will en
able the printer to reprint hot Lt
with astonishing rapidity, ltwill.it
satislactory, set aside the preset!
method of stereotyping.
The humble current of little ynd
nesses which, though but a creyjjHip
streamlet, incessantly llowt; alyWugh
it glides along in silent secrcrt w ith
in the domestic walls, and along the
walks of private life, and mokes nei
ther noise nor appearance in the
world pours, in the end, a mots
bountilul tribute into thj store ot hu
man comfort and lelicitv, than anv
ludden and transient tl oJ ! detach
ed bounty, however ample, that may
rush into it wun a migniy suunu.
Whatever fortune mav be niaJt
by perjury, I believe there never was
a man who made a fortune by com
mon swearing. It often happi ns that
men pay for swearing, but it seldom
happens that they me paid for if. It
is nut easy to perceive what honoi
or ciedit is connected with it. Does
n man receive tromotion because
he is a notatle tlusterer? Or is anv
man advanced in dignity because he
is expert at profane sweannuT Low
must ba the character which such im
pertinence will exalt; high must be
tl.e character which such imperii
ntnee will not degrade. Inexcusa
b e, therefore, must be the practice
which has neither reason nor passion
to support it. The drunkard hat his
cups, the Letcher his mistress; the sa
tirist his revenge; the ambitious man
his preferments; the misor his gold;
but the common swearer has noth
tng; he is a fool at large, sells his soul
lor naught, and drudges in in the ser
vice of the devil gratis. Swearing is
void of all plea; it is not the native
offspring of the soul, not interwoven
with tho textujc of the body: nor
any how allied to our frame. For,
as'Tillotson expresses it, "though
tome men pour out oaths at if thev
weie natural, yet no man was ever
born of a hwearing constittiuon."
But it is a custom, a low and paltry
custom, pirked up by low and paltrv
spirits who have no sense of honor,
no regard tor decency, but are forced
to substitute some rhapsody of non
sense to supply the vacancy of cood
sense. Hence the silliness of the!
practice can oaly be equalled by the
silliness of those who adopt it.
