Mr. Horn objected to its being sent to that

The motion was negatived, and the memo

Wednesday, April 11, 1832.
To pursue a course as public journalists satisfactory
to our patrons and ourselves, we know to be a difficult
task : it is an end scarcely to be hoped for, a result so
difficult of attainment, that, with us, it is a debateahle
question whether or not it ought to be proposed—wheth
er we ought not to be satisfied with the principle which
some moralists attempt to prove, “That to please our
selves is the best way to please others,” and seek self
approbation alone. Be this as it may, certain it is, that
were we to submit to dictation, or the varying caprices
of any class of meu, we should soon be as mueh at loss
to know what particulars in our conduct to amend, if
censured, as was the artist who, when he exposed his
picture for the public to . mark tlieir disapprobation of
any of its parts, found it all a bJofcn-and in the end
find ourselves unceasingly perplexed and harrassed with
secret bolir'.itutionc; and lo.*»3 —7 ■•***-—’ r*" ,v
lief of self ooiumcadft^ion, or the happiness of feeling
that there were even'd few among the many whom we
greet with our weekly messages;, who sympathised with
our joys or pitied our sorrows.
We think best, then, to assume high ground, to pur
sue a course more dignified than manoeuvremg or scrib
bling for the favor of any sect or party; and, a few
leading and well understood principles being proposed,
to let onr motto be, “Let justice be done, though the
heavens fall”—let truth be admitted, when clearly
shown, approve or disapprove, whoever will.
This we believe to be tbc safe course for ourselves,
whenever onr own opinions and views are expressed ;
yet while in this community wc number men of various
dispositions and tastes, men who, no doubt, conscien
tiously differ on questions of policy and government,
who are able to maintain the principles they assume
with reason and argument, aud who, at proper times,
will not shrink from tbe respocsibiiity of asserting them,
we canttoL, onr maxim forbids that we should, deny them
a candid bearing, or refuse to epen our columns to a fair
discussion of their political doctrines. Yet while we
thus throw open oar columns te a full discussion of all
subjects in witich the public are interested, we would not
be understood to resign any of the privileges, which our
station as public journalists, gives us—we still retain our
discretion—and if the community repose any confidence
J-i our integrity, wc should feel coesciou? that their con
fidence was but illy requited, did we not reserve to our
selves an ultimate control over the matter with which
our pages are filled.
We invite the attention of our readers to the commu
nication of W. G. Goforth in to-day's paper. A part
only of the manuscript is inserted; want of room pre
vented us giving it entire. The extracts will show, ami
we presume accomplish the writer’s aim; which seems
to be, to correct misapprehension, if indeed any really
exists, as to the mtcutkms of the Convention recently
held at this place. Mr. Goforth prefers Col. Johnson
for the Vice Presidency, and that for very good reasons;
but for the sake of unanimity, be is willing to sacrifice
private, and well grounded attachments, and give his
influence in aid of that man who may be most accepta
ble to the friends of Gen. Jackson in Illinois. Such al
so were the feelings of the Valid alia Convention, as
appears clearly from their published proceedings; for
they distinctly say, should Col. Johuson not be taken
up by the friends of Gen. Jackson to an extent suffi
cient to afford a hope of his rc-election, then the elec
toral candidates (nominated by the Convention) are
considered at liberty to vote for that man who it is be
lieved will be most acceptable to the friends of the
present administration m this state. Why then will
gentlemen cry “division” when none exists: the mem
bers of the Convention have only declared their prefer
ence for Col. Johnson, and given their reasons for such
preference; and now they will be unwilling (o believe
th.it gentlemen really differ from them who, while they
object to their proceedings, also say they would not be
outdone by any in their admiration of the talents and
patriotism of Col. Johnson.
The following letter to Gov. Reynolds, will
be of interest to many of our readers, as doubts
have been expressed as to the probability that
Congress would make an appropriation to defray
the expenses of the Black Hawk war.
House of Representatives, March 20, 1332.
“Dear Sir—1 am happy to inform you and our
friends, that the House of Representatives has
passed a bill appropriating $55,232 to pav the
troops and expenses of our campaign, last Sum
mer. The pay will be tlic same tlml was receiv
by the troops oollec] o.il in lfi07.
“Willi great respect your friend,
“Gov. John Reynolds,)
Belleville, Illinois.” y
The Herald of the 29th ult., commenting on an arti
cle taken from this paper, says “There is not one dele
gate yet appointed in -any other county than Fayette to
attend the Convention M Vandalia”—and again—“we
give the ‘choice spirits’ another pill to-day in the shape
of some resolutions adopted at n Jackson meeting re
cently held in Greene county.”
Mr. Brooks, in reconciling the first statement here
quoted with certain choice facts be can learn by exa
mining the Whig attentively, will find a pill quite as
bitter as his Greene county resolutions: Nor will the
partial retraction in the last H. render brother B.’s pill
much more palatable; there will be some unpolished j
corners to it, not entirely covered by the paliativc he
would provide in saying, “Delegates have been appoint
ed in two or three, small counties in the lower part of the
We do not know what has been done in the lower
part of the State, perhaps, so well as Mr. B., but we
know what ha9 been done in some counties not quite as
far north as “The Sangamon country,”
But the Greene county pills—on analysis we perceive
no now’ or unusually efficient ingredients in them. The
same, we presume, might be gathered in many other
^oun.ties, woul4 any body take the trouble to a$k for
them rViey cost but little, inti appear much tetter
when trmnpetted abroad b; Hawkers and Heralds,
than in Ihe places where thty are first manufactured.
Without fgure, however, M. 13. is certainly ught in
giving the proceedings alludid to circulation—any of
his brother editors would havj done the same: it is the
name only \hat he gives then, that is singular, and a
name, he says, is every thing.
By last nigit’s mail, Washington papers were received
up to the 26h ult. Nothing of importance has been
done in Congcss since our last. The Tariff the Ord
nance Bill, ind Mr. Wilde’s resolution 'elating to
coins, are stillunder discussion. The Apportionment
Bill, as appeanby the suty‘oi»ed letter to « gentleman
of this town, al& received by last night’s nail, is about
to be acted uponin the Senate.
Washington, Ma/ch 27, 18.52.
The mail from Jandalia to Springfieldthe Post Office
Department has determined on having carried in a four
horse stage, of which you will, in a very short time,
have official notice : which notice I presume woulil have
been given before this, but i'or the immense press of
business in that Department.
No news other than you sie from the newspapers—
Jackson’s re-election is consdered certain—Johnson’s
prospects are good.—I think the price of public iands
will be reduced some.—The ipportionnicrit Bill is still
before the Senate, and is expected to be acted on to
day ; the ratio most ,7,700.
A large and respectable meeting of the friends
of Col. R. M. Johnson, was held in )ho City of
New York, to recommend him as a candidate for
Vice President of the United States. The moot
ing was very numerous, .r .„„0iiy ot
“working men.” In the preamble it is inciden
tally stated, that though Mirtin Van Buren has
been mentioned as candidate for Vice President,
it is believed, from the assertions of his confi
dential friends, without he knowledge or consent,
and that he will under no circumstances, be a
candidate. The following tre among the reso
lutions adopted:
“Resolved, That the uncompromising honesty,
useful talents, sterling patriotism and faithful
services of Col. Richard M. Johnson, of Ken
tucky, eminently qualify him to fill the office of
Vice President, aid entitle him to the confidence
and support of tlu people of the United States.
“Resolved, Ttat we recommend Col. Richard
HI. Johnson to cur fellow citizens generally, and
especially to tie democratic convention to be
held in Baltimore, in May next, as the most suit
able person to lie put in nomination as Vice
President, in onnexion with Gen. Andrew Jack
son as President of the United States.”
We are reqmsted to announce, as u candidate for
Congress in theWabash District,WICKLIFFEKITCH
ELL, Esq.
In the eveat of this state being entitled to three
represent.'! lives in the 23d Congress, many ol
the friends of Lieut. Gov. Oasey are solicitous
that he will allow himself to be announced as a
candidate for representative ia the Wabash Dis
trict, composed of the countits of White, Ham
ilten, Jefferson, Marion, Fuvatte, Montgomery,
Shelby, Macon, Vermilion, Elgar, Clark, Coles,
Lawrence,Clay, Wabash, Edvards, and Wayne.
They esteem him as a man ot talents and know
him to possess great moral wtrth and fitness for
the station.
We are requested to unnounci C. B. BERRY as a
candidate for re-election ofSheriffof Fayette county, at
the ensuing lugust election.
From the St. Louis iteacon.
We understand that the tioops at Jefferson
Barracks, consisting of six companies of the 6th
Regiment of Infantry, are under orders for Rock
Island. We have not understood the precise na
ture of the instructions to General Atkinson,
who will command the expedition, but we pre
sume that the movement has some relation to the
violent outrage committed last fall by the Sac
and Fox Indiais at Prairie du Chien, under the
very flag of the {overmnent. We confess we are
pleased to vvitnct9 this indication of promptness
and rigor on the part of the Administration in
imposing restraint on the audacity of those tribes,
and we are convinced that the most effectual
means of quellingtheir turbulent spirit, and of
awing them into a jroper respect for our authori
ty, and for the treaties which they have made, is
to inflict on them a salutary chastisement as an
alternative for every disturbance and violation of;
treaty which they may be guilty of. It is by ap
pealing to their fears, and rijt to their magna
nimity or good faith, that we hay expect to pro
duce such an impression. Without any positive
information on the subject, >4 conclude that the
immediate object of the expedtion is to demand
a surrender of the murdererstn the late Prairie
du Chien massacre; and juddng from the ener
gy already displayed by Mr. Jecretary Cass, in
the administration of the Wai department, and
the decision and promptness ej the distinguished
officer selected Jo, command lha ---
entertain very little doubt, but .qaj an uncondi
tional compliance of the Indiins, will be their
best policy.
The government has already expended large
sums of money on account of these vory tribes,
and it will be recollected by our readers, that
many of Black Hawk’s band, who gave rise to
the difficulty last spring at Risk Island, arc im
plicated in this transaction; aid whilst we would
regret the necessity of udoptiig forcible meas
ures towards them, we still tliiflt that a moderate
chastisement would be the most effectual moans
of curbing their restless disposition, and the best
security for their good behaviour in future.
From the National Intelligencer.
We have heard in silence the varitus ex
pressions of opinien on Jhe probable conse
quences of the recent decission of the Supreme
Court of the United States in the case o! the
Missionaries who have been imprisoned, un
der the laws of Georgia, in the penitentary
of that State. At length we have received
the opinion of Several journals in the Stattof
Georgia, and n* doubt remains on our mild,
from their tone, that the mandate of the Su
preme Court is that case will be disregards,
however it might have been lioped otherwise.
We shall not stop here to deplore the infatua
tion uuder the influence of Svtuclyhfs course
will be pursued, but proceed to execute the
purpose for which we took up the pen.
The very respectable Editor of the Politic
al Arena (at Fredericksburg, Virginia) specu
lating on this subject in his last number, says
“We have arrived at a crisis—an undoubted
“and momentous crisis. A few days will decide
“the question of the further duration of this
We fully concur in the opinion expressed in
the first of the above sentences, while we dis
sent in part from that conveyed in the second.
We trust that the Union will endure for many
centuries, though more than one State shall
rise against it. At any rate, so far as it may
be directly affected by the action of Georgia
in the case before us, we are under the im
pression that it will be more than “a few days”
before the question will be decided.
The course which we presume this business
will take we will state for the satisfaction of
those who place any value on our opinion up
on such matters.
The mandate of the Supreme Court is di
rocted to the Superior Court for the county
of Gwinnet, in the State of Georgia; and it
requires of that Court that it do release the
Missionaries, who are confined at hard labor
in the Penitentiary, under an act of the State
of Georgia which is decreed to be repugnant
to the Constitution, Treaties, and Laws of the
United S*"'
ii tne Court obey the mandate, it is well,
no more is to be said or done.
If the Court does not obey the mandate, ap
plication will, we suppose, be made to the Su
preme Court, at its next term in this city,(that
is, in January next,) to execute its own judg
ment, under the laws of the United States,
which provide that in cases where the State
Courts do not execute the judgments of the
Supreme Court, that Court may issue its own
procees to carry into effect its own judgments.
It is possible, indeed, that application might
be made toone of the Judges of the United
States, out of Court, for a habeas corpus, to
bring thecase immediately before him. But
the general idea seems to be, that nothing will
be done towards enforcing the judgment until
the next meeting of the Court, in this city.
If, finally, process issuing from the Supreme
Court, and which must be granted as a matter
of course, shall be resisted, it will be the duty
of the Marshal of the United States for that
District to summon a posse comitatus, and of the
President of the United States, if necessary,
to place the Army and Militia of the United
States at the service of the civil authority.
In any event, it will be seen that the dan
ger from this source is not so immediate as sup
posed by our friend at Fredericksburg.

The new Board was organized.on. the 3d inst.
by the appointment of W. H. Brown, President,
and Z. Case, Clerk. At a meeting on the 6th
instant, the ’.oard appointed J. T. Eccles, Esq.
Assessor, and Hency B. Roberts, Collector. The
street districts were so changed, that the second
district includes main street, from the river to 6th
(Street, and the streets and roads making the Nor
thern, Shelbyville, and Springfield roads. All
persons subject to road labor, living east of the
river, and north of main street, and south of said
street to 2d street, are assigned to work such
streets and roads; and Capt. Wm. Linn was ap
pointed Street Commissioner for said district.
The third district includes all 4th street lying
south of main street and the Carlyle road. Those
living west of 2d street, and south of main street,
to 4th street, including both sides of 4th street,
and those residing in the house now occupied by
G. F. Stolle, are to work in this district. John
Charter, Street Commissioner.
The fourth district, includes 5th street, from
Edwards street to Main street, and the Greenville
road. Those living west of the west side of 4th
street, and south of Main street, excepting those
living in the house of G. F. Stolle aforesaid, are
assigned to the 4th district. James Whitlock, Esq.
Street Commissioner.
We understand that it is the intention of the
Board to graduate 5th street, from Johnson to
Main street, and also Gallatin, from 4th to 5th
streets. This work is much needed—and these
portions of our streets have long been a standing
monument of a want of energy and enterprize
among our citizens. We trust, however, that the
Board will not stop here, but will extend their
improvements to every part of the town.
