Howell, Esq., retires from the Anderson True Democrat, and is succeeded by Messrs. Lernen and Cyan, to whom we extend the courtesie of the occasion. Important Fnrl for llic Consideration of fhc IN ople of Iiili:in:i. Hie political contest which we arc chout cnterinrr is p peculiar one. There is hardly a qurption cf principle or t oliry, heretofore (Mnlabh, upon which tlie whi party dirrs to tnke a stand. Upon tliepo tiicy feel that Ihey would certainly be beaten, ashcrc tDfore. Partis nre reduced to this predicament, to contend atjaint rach ether, for the pi-session of the power mill pntroii.ijjo of thf Stc t to t rtitneot , nl mot Pohdy upon th j'o'iiical ci itttcUr ? ' jcjuild linn of each, as estob'ish d by their yal conduct! Neither as it regards National or State policy, will trio whips df Indiana dare to take a general issue, Painst tho Democrats, before thepetple. Tiic whig are forced to the ndinisin, iliat the most prominent measures of policy, f.r which they have contended in times past, are, now cither unnecessary, or not in r,uetion. These are "obsolete ideae," as Daniel Webster paid of the Hank. They arc forced to these confessions, because they know that those measures are now unpopular with a large majority of the peo ple. They may be insincere; many of them proba bly are so ; but that does not affect the fact which wc statt, nnd which every body knows to be true. If thre beany exception to this statement, it exists in the question of Slurry. In Indiana, the whit? managers at the capital, endeavor to make a point in their favor upon this rpiestion, so far ns the coming Stat? Wectinn is concerned. They are driven to this by necessity and ryjainst their own choice. They certainly know that it puts them into an anlagonistic a'titude to the Taylor administration ; but they arc forced into that inconsistency, because, without se curing the votes of the Free Soil party, the whig leaders despair of achieving a victory over the exit ing well-established democratic majority. This is the reason why Hie State Journal, for weeks pat has been anxiously laboring to court the Free Soilers. Now it is possible, though by no means certain, tint if the Free Sailers should abandon their own or ganization, ami go over to the whigs, the coalition might be strong enough to beat the democrats. This, we say, is possible, but by no means certain. The State was revolutionized before the Slavery question assumed its present aspect ; though at that time the whigs courted and received not a little "aid and com fort" from the Abolition party. What the democrats did then, they cav at least do now, under .similar cir cumstances. Ivitit is nt at all likelv that the body of the Free Soil nartv can thus he transferred to the whigs. We have never for a moment had so little confidence in choir honesty and integrity as to believe any such thiiiLT. If they were willitifr to be transferred at all, tlit; first important question tor them would b' a to whi'.li of the other parlio they would go ! All the talk we have had in the State Journal so fir, bounds very much like a re-hah of the stuff whieli it used to dole out to the Aliolitioiiists, a warming up of tint stale old rent, a meagre soup of those old bones. The whir leaders want the Free SoilvoWs; there is no doubt about that. Hut what could the Free Soilers expect in return ? This th.ows us back to the propositi n upon which we started, the political character and reputation of the democratic and whig parlies, as established by their pist conduct. Tested by this rule, w hich party could the Free Soilers most safely trust! It is not neces sary for U3 to answer the question. It is true that the whigs make the loudest pmffs sicris j nt iifiw, in favor of free Foil ; but nnisci ru t always an evidence of sound sincerity and faith, es pecially when it i.s certain that men havo a sinister or selfish purpose to effect. Who forgets the innu merable assertions w hich the whigs made of Taylor's anti-slnveryism, before his election ! Who forgets the speeches of their orators, domestic and imported, to that effect, and their unyielding hostility to slavery in all its aspects 7 Who has not since witnessed the treachery of those orators, anil Taylor's attempt to defeat the Wilrnot proviso in Congress, on his arrival at Washington, even before he was inaugurated ! Who can, by any stretch of credulity, possibly expect that the w hig party will throw aw ay the fruits of its National victory, by becoming antagonistic to Taylor on this question I National! y, the whigs are not committed at oil, on this or any other line of policy, except such as may be adopted by Taylor. At their National Convention, they hootod down any attempt to define iheir political position in nny respect, and thpy took up Taylor, as he told them they saoVdtakc him, unconditionally. He is emphatically and truly, their MASTER, so fnr as their opinions arc concern ed, and whatever he may do or say, they must re spond, amen ! great is xchiggtry, but greater is Tiy'nr ! The democratic party, on the other hand, though it maintained its old ground, which it will adhere to, as to the question of slavery in the States, w here it already exists, showed conclusively, by its action in the last Ilaltimorc Convention, that it would not favor the extension of Slavery to territories now free. Southern men endeavored to force the Convention into such a position, but they were rtrd dntvn. It it truj that (Jen. Cavs wrote the Nicholson letter, and that is the only thing which then and no.v, a fiords the w higs even a pretext to show that the democratic par ty art? not right on this question. 7'Ac result of the election showed that the democratic parly would not subscribe to any thing which looked to the extension of slavery, and they siJfrrrd defeat rather than to compromise themselves. Contrast ihc present posi tion of the two parties, and the deductions are inevi table. Whiggery sacrificed every thing to the lust of i aver : democracy this day occupies a position of moral strength hitherto unrivalled. The impudence of the State Journal is only equal led by i!s folly, when it endeavors to convince the Free Soilers that tin: whirrs are all for free soil and the democrats all opposed to it. Every body knows, that the State Conventions of afl parties in this State, have expressed similar doctrines on this subject. No matter as to what professions may have been made iu times past, th' only important question to be deter mined is, wntrir takty is now the most tklst- WOUTHY AMD BINCKKF. 1 The lending Free Soilers ore wise enough to see this. The strongest effort have been made by the whig leaders to form a union with the Free SoiIer3. Within a mouth or two, a voluminous correspondence by letters has occurred, and since then, consultations have been held by the negotiators in this city. Hut the schemes of the whig managers have lcen defeat ed, because the Free Soilers were too honest, as well as tw wise, to become treacherous to their profes sions. Of these movements, wc shall have more to Ray hereafter. fj7-The Supreme Court of Indiana commenced its regular May term, on Monday last.nt the Court room in this rity. I 'resent.

According to this, either war was not put in Its true light, or the second Washington hau not a well regulated mind. Senator Hciiton and Slavery. A telegraphic despatch, dated St. -Louts, May iith, gives a summary of the positions maintained by Col, j I'enton, in a speech at Jefferson City, the first part of which only has been published. The despatch states tint Col. ). devotes several columns to the ex position of Calhoun's inconsistencies 0:1 the slavery question. He is very explicit, and snys it is absurd to deny (o Congress the power to legislate as they please upon ibis subject in the Territories. It I, as exercised the power, and with the sanction of all au thorities, both State and Federal, from the foundation of the (Jovcrnment to the present time. Congress has power to prohibit or admit slavery, and no one else. It is not in the territories, nur thejr govern ments, its deputies, or the creaturrs of Congress. No citizen of any State can carry any proptnty derived from a law of that State an inch beyond the boundary line which creates it. Slave property, for this rea son, cannot be removed to California er New Mexico, nor can nny legal establishment of slavery be looked lor in either territory. The only effect of carrviiu' slaves there would h, to set them free. The people of both territories are unanimous against it. The Missouri resolutions were copied from those of Mr. Calhoun, in the Senate, in lw17, lo know Ihcir design you must know his. His designs were aimed at the Union, the harmony and stability of the Union, nnd at the members of the sbiv holding States who would not follow his lead. O-Hon. W"m. 1. Maclay, late a member of Con gress from the city of New York, (in connection with several of his brothers,) it is said, has pur chased a large tract of land, nearly an entire county, in Illinois, situated at the head of navigation on the Illinois river. These gentlemen design removing to their purchase, and lie; county seat is to be called M. a clay. ."Mr. W. 1J.

We are glad to see men of capital nnd enterprise turning. their at tention to the West, but we protest against nil mon opolies, ami particularly against u nunopoly of the Ltiiid. The soil was designed for the use of man : he should onu it in .moderate quantities', and culti vate it for his sustenance ; that law which permits one man to become landlord over thousands as the Maclays will be if their possessions nie occupied, is at war with the best interests of society. The "anti-rent" scenes of New York may be re-enacted in Illinois at some future day. Imtoktant Csi.s Dm IDLH. The suit brought by the Vinccnnes University ngriinst the State, in which" a large amount of land is in controversy, was decided by the Marion Circuit Court, at its n cent session, in favor of the University.

We have repeatedly asked tiiose who declaim that the new Administration is prescriptive, to tell ns what, in their judgment, it might lo do in 1 he premises, but in yet can extort no answer. N. Y. Tribune. Iu our judgment you ought to acknowledge candid ly that the sweeping system of proscription now prac tised is in direct violation of Taylor's pledges, and that when you urged those pledges as omeng the rea sons for Taylor's election, you deliberately intended to deceive the people and practice a fraud upon them. Any tiling short of such a confession is but a new in sult. "The appointing power at Washington must have been grossly imposed tip n, or else the person ap pointed postmaster at Rising Sun would not have re ceived tho appointment." Slate Journal. The above remarks of the State Journal are quite gratuitous. Wc know the person to whom he al ludes, and know him to he fully competent to dis charge the duties of the oflicc he has been appointed to fill. If any imposition has been practiced, it was by the citi.ens of Kisjng Sun by their petition, and they ore ahme the sufferers. Such intimations for the gratification of personal pique, very seldom subserve the public good. Wa bash At'as. The fellow ref srred to has a pretty hard reputa tion, it is true, but wc do not see why the State Jour nal should singii this case out of the hundreds of "gross impositions' of which the whigs have been guilty of late. Tho State Sentinel says thai Col. Tepper, the lite U. S. Marshal for Indiana, is as good a man as Mr. Meredith, his successor! Well, admitting this to be true, we cannot see that Col. I'epper was by any prin ciple of justice, entitled to a "life estate" in the Marshalship. "Rotation in oflicc" wax a doctrine advocated warmly by our Sentinel friends in times gone by, and the appointment of Mr. Meredith har monizes beautifully with that doctrine. Cambridge Re it Vie. How stupid the Reveille is! Every reader of the Sentinel knows we r e iu favor of rotation in office, that we have claimed no "life estate" in any office for any one, and that we have not objected to the dis missal of democrats from tho olliccs under the con trol f the President. We have said what wc have, merely to show up the inconsistency and hypocrisy of the whigs in making pledges and then facing about and breaking them with a profligate recklessness which would disgrace a band of highway rubbers.

Since Tavlor has been ae custd of violating his pledges not to proscribe, it is thought that tiie old man will come out and state hon estly that h never wrote any of his letter?. We un derstand that he has good authority to back him in the declaration. Appointment of Editors. I Thrre worn some seiifihl remark in a late Journal f( Cornnu rcc en the appointment of Editors to office, had j they heen npplied with a little morn discrimination. It; rrrtVmlv du- not look well when those who have been J htisie-t and most vociferous, from the necessity of the ;:.-u, tu exhnrlin t' vote for their party foi the cuuntris sähe, fall readily into the bad habit of importuning for. t (lice upon their pirtv stirceeding it looks too much as if olliee. had been the 'nnl and i'ti of their exertions. I'eoplj will soon lipin to s.iy diirinz a canvass : "That 1 fellow is blowing his h 'rti very lotnl, and talks as if the ' world would mine to toi end if hi st'le should lose I wonder what ofiiee he will put iu f-r il Iiis party wins: That would he rth r a damper on the i Iii ienrv of leli- i tonal exhortation. s a general rule, wu thlliK ecmoM shoul look directly to the people for the reward of their well doing, and in a more wholesome duipc than that of office. If tho people sdiotihl rail one to serve in peine elective station, we tl ui't see why he should reluse, hut let him be sure be i called and not an office beggar, even j at the loimt.-ou head. We. think, however, there are rnri to whieli the loic of the Journal does not apply. Take tlwl of our neigh bor I'latt, Editor of the I'otighkec pie Eagle, for example. He Ins been right in that spot, editing a whig p iper and nothing else, fir twenty-one years, to our certain kuow ledji alwnys on one Hide, though the other wa general ly the winning one and alwavs as zealous and devoted ns in the la-t campaign. We never In ard him named lor an appointment before, and now he i proposed for post master. We dorit ety he is better qualified nnd more de serving tlroi all bis competitors that is not the point but if be should be appointed, cnu anybody say with rea son tint this devotion to the whig party or his cnpporl of den. lay lor was impelled by n hunkering lor ofiiee ? o in many other eases. We trust editors w ill not conic to regard olliee a the goal nnd i"Compense of their l.dn rs, but that they will not, 011 the other h ind, he deemed in li gihle by reason d tlwir railing. 'Tho middle course is best.' Nae York Tribune. The above is from Horace flreeley's paper. We know of no rcisou why an editor under the Fame cir cumstances should not Ftand upon an equality with any other man for executive appointments. s to l is chance with ihe people, it would bo excellent but for the jealousy of rival editors and alo of old politi cians. F.ditors are always quarreling among them selves with cause, if one exists, and without one, if none exist. They must quarrel. It is a part of their aliment to cull each oilier all the hard names there are. in the dictionary. Again, as a general thing, the mass of the politicians nre opposed to editors or rather cannot In suited with them. They are not, puff si eii 'iigh or rather their rivals are puffed too much. An editor must sqwak out on every rpiestion, j and must make many enemies, it cannot but be n. The masses may he wi'h nu editor and inclined to do him josti-p; bnt there will generally be enough of the politicians n gainst him to hold a sort of balance of power to keep him out of off.ee. It is almost im pofsüde for an independent editor to be personally very popular. Somebody will have taken umbrage to what he may have published. A fid editors frequently have to make themselves unpopular in order to write others into popularity. Editors arc generally poor. Xine-tenth.s of them arc bankrupts. So they need ofoeo : but to get it i the thing. As a general Niing, Ihey must have it by appointment or they must go without it. We have never been a candidate for any nfiiec of appointment, lint we have for one, nnd only one, of election. And there we always found some wounded bird fluttering about Home newspaper article of ours. We lost one man's vote once because we accident!)' said in tlx; paper that another man's bull got the pre mium at the cattle show when his did. We lost one man's influence at a convention once because when unbeknown to us he acted as State's Attorney at otic term of a certain court, wedid not nnnonnee th? fact. We once lopt the iniluence of Ihe friends on both side of a crtain married couple because a very in-j r.oeent squib ol poetry was placed under tin? an-1 notincetnent, S:c. 5:c. There is no accounting for the different ways in which men will get offended. If editors arn deserving of anything, they must take it the way they can be-t get it. '.And In most fins j is by nppointment; yet we, like (Ireeley, prefer; taking office nt the hands of the people. Eut yet it is no' every editor who can get it there. We shall not complain of (Jen. Taylor for appoint ing editors t office providing they ore worthy in oth er icspeets. They should, liowewr, be men of busi nccs habits and business talents. Other editorial appointments will injure any party. Chicago Dnno erat. CO" We could tell some funny stories, about the ob jections raised against our junior, when a candidate for nomination, not long since, but will, now only mention one or two of tlicm, to-wit : he was consul-j cred too honest ! not rascal enough to mec't nny ras- i - 1 cally whig that might be pitted against him ! besides, i his services as an editor could not be dispensed with, though it wns thought by some that he couldn't make j stump speeches. It was said that he was rich wish j they could prove it 1 and a necessary qualification j with some is notorious poverty. He had stopped a j man's paper who did'nt pay, .Vc. lc. &c.

It phows the entire groundlessness of certain statements math? by the State Journal, for the purpose of gulling the Whig portion of the Free Soil party, in the hope of making them false to their present relations for the benelit of whiggery. The Journal appears to; think that there is no such thing as hunt sly in poli ties, and practices on its belief: Messrs. l'hipmmi Spann: I tea hy a late number of (he In liana Journal that a charge i ma de against me that I am clictioneeiing for Joseph A.

Regen cy J and that (ieueral Taylor is wholly ignorant ef thi events that are going on nround him. There is hut one way to excuse the recent extraordinary movements of his Cabinet ;. and that is that they were consummated without consultation with him. To hold him accountable is neither more n r less than to allede that he is guilty of infamous conduct. Letters from Washington state that "Taylor is bothered to understand why the State of Virginia fhonld one week tend him a splendid sword for his conduct as a soldier, and the next week send fourteen members of Congress to oppose his administration !" Ilxehange. "(iencral Taylor is bothered" about a very simple matter. Virginia appreciates and admires the (Ten ernl in his proper sphere, as a military man, but has n ) very good opinion of him as a statesman, and a still worse opinion of the piratical crew into whoso possession he has delivered himself.

There is but tho oneway: Legislative prohitition. The whig ptcss say that in advocating this piohibitim tne Ih-mocials of tho North have changed ground. Have I not liown sufficient nasoos for it ? Would they have us maintain the same view f a subject under widely varying fids suriouioling it ? This would tie al ways to think and act to-day as we did yesterday, regardless of the changes about us, or incapable e f learning and profit ing by Ihem. Such couise would not become a reasonable being. If we have changed guund, the questiui itself is materially changed.
