All are liable to err, but accord
ing to our opinion, nothing is more
valuable in a newspaper (linn bold
ness in the expression of its views.
Decision lind d?termin?t ion aro
characteristics absolutely essen
tial to success, and tile editor who
?seeks to "beat around" an issue
that is before the people, for fear
that his views are not popular, i.->
unworthy thc supper! of any com
munity. But we also say that
nothing should bc condemned more
thnn the custom, prevalent muong
some newspapers, of trying to in
fluence public opinion upon the
guilt or innocence of a party ac
cused of crime, before tho facts ure
presented to a jury. The press is
undoubtedly ti power, and its free
dom one of tho brightest stars that
mark the superiority of the Amer
ican government, yet it should
never be allowed to interfere ?with
or s ti pc recd e trial o.y J'art/.
To he tried for crime is II serious
thing, and our government de
clares that it shall be done fairly
and impartially; any attempt from
any source, to influence in any
manner tho minds of those whose
whose duty it is to decide, is con
trary to the spirit of our institu
tions and should bo condemned.
Honv newspapers seem ever ready
and anxious to publish scandal,
^.yeft..t'key appear to subsist Upon it.
*.:K1 mere rumor they turn into
facts, and in the harshest manner
prejudge tho accused.
More than once we have been
urged to adopt this course. Friends
have told us that it would make
hundreds of subscribers if we
-denounce certain accused persons.
Perhaps tins is true; 'he public
seem far too eager to read these
sensational and scandalous articles ;
hut, bo that as it may, lot us lose
every subscriber, let us turnup our
toes anti die, tho AnvEHTisKit will
never be guilty of such a course,
knowingly. We endeavor to state
everything that comes to our
knowledge, that it is proper to state,
and do SO in an impartial manner
to state no rumor as a fact, and
comment on it as such. If thc
public desires more, let them go to
n Polic? (iazeffe or other scandal
monger. We desiri* to injure no
one, and bold truth above price.
If you would read a man's char
acter, look at him while he ls pur
suing his daily avoca'io:-. Some,
can labor and toil from day to day
in lill ll) ble positions and all thc
while preserve a cheerful and hap
py appearance that is sure to draw
the attention of the most casual
observer, while others go about
their work with a downcast look
that throws a gloom over all who
come in contact with them. The
you ll ff man who stands behind the
?.minter and greets his customers
with a smile; who has a cheerful
.?'ord for idl, .rorth moro to his
employer than a dozen such as ap
pear to have lost even the faintest
ray of hope, and have not learned
to look upon the bright side of life.
The world-itself cold, bard mid

If people occasionally take Hie
law into their own hands, is it not
owing, in part nt least, to the lae!
that they fear tim courts und Juries
