The "Missorw Jockxal"' Apol
ogy to. Mb. BlAMERHASSETT, &.C.
Those of our reader who Lave seen
.the "Missouri Journal" of the 4th inst.,
will doubtless remember an artie'e which
.appeared iu that sheet, iinjilicatini; II.
15. Blanhebhissett. a distinguished
lawyer and politician of St. Louip, with
certain band of counterfeiters recently
detected iu Lincoln county. The ap
pearance of that gentleman in our town
on Monday last in connection w ilh the
publication of so reprehensible an arti
cle, has given occasion to no little com
ment upon the course' of the now distin
guished editor of the Journal. A feel
ing of astonishment, amounting to indig
nation, was visible in every counte
nance upon the appearance of that print,
nd a general expression of surprise was
ate the name of one ot our most distin
guished men in the columns of a public
journal, witti those of confessed villains,
upon the mere floating rumors of the
day was certainly well calculated to
bring down upon the author of so im
prudent a step the censure of nil good
men, everywhere. It is true, the edi
tor says he was actuated by a feeling of
patriotism in exposing crime and ferrel-
ing out the authors of the heavy inju-
nes sustained by our citizens. A puer
ile reason truly for so high handed and
unauthorised a course ! If Mr. Blan
nerhassett had been guilty, was it not an
act of injustice to the community, to tf.ut
furnish him timely warning to escape the
penalty of a law which he had been sup
posed to have violated! Was this the
means to bring guilt to the bar ofjmHcel
Still the Journal editor, "felt U Lis du
ty" "that he might cxpo.-e dishonest
men . to give these men the means of
escape. But is it right thus publicly to
brand with infamy the most humble citi
zen in our community, when there is
naught against Liu: save the malicious
voice of rumor? "Shall an honest fame,
the fruit of a pure and upright Hi'e, be
placed within the unfeeling grasp of any
editor who dares assail it? If this li
cense be allowed the press it is but a
mighty engine of oppression and terror,
that has but to fulminate its arbitrary de
crees against our citizens, in erder to
A ah J1 damn fhe- fastest rtputrttitfi. ' If
however, the readers of that veracious
sheet will examine into the past course
of that paper, they will discover that this
is not the first or second cause of offence.
The recklessness with which the editor
assailed one of our best citizens we
mean Mr. Wood during the last politi
cal canvass, was noticed by many. Sub
sequently, ho alluded to a conversation
had in the court house, between two of:
our citizens and intended ef course to be
private and more recently, he records
a conversation had with a gentleman in
Ashley and, Lama like, he spits at him
bis poisonous slime. And now, he pub
Iishes to the world, the name of a dis
tinguished citizen of St. Louis, as enga
ged in a "nefarious work," upon a "ver
bal statement, received from Troy,'
which statement, we have reason to be
lieve, he was.unauthorized to make pub
lic. He will yet learn that it does not
do to retail through the Journal, every
private conversation that may reach Lis
But "John Henry" is a man capable
of mighty actions. All must concede
that he wields his editorial pen with as
much indifference to consequences as he
in by-gone days, poised Lis sword upon
the memorable plains of "Plumb Creek"
nd darted at the breast of a Spanish foe.
But his chivalrous deeds upon the bat
tle field will sink into insignificance
when compared with the efforts of his
genius, and the glory that must cluster
around Lis name, as the murderer of pri
vate character. The soldier claims our
praise whilst the editor demands the un
qualified admiration of all, as a tribute
due to his bold career. Or.e dash of his
pen inflicts a wound as cureless upon
reputation as any ever incurred by the
rash enemy who dared bid defiance to
his unerring sabre.
But the greatest men will sometimes
overreach themselves, and so we fear it
has been in this instance, with our
neighbor of the "Journal." His ge
nius will urge him too far. He could
cot content himself with inflicting the
loan nl nitric). . . A . I r

into whose ear the secrets of the day
were confided, end with characteristic
boldness, in an honest burst of indigna
tion, he give vent to his feelings, pro
claiming that rumor had connected
R. S. ULANNERHASSETT
with ibis "nefarious business." The
honor of disclosing to the world so im
portant a discovery, will be Johnny's.
"I am a man of parts," chuckled he, a
universal genius and can direct the
helm of the "Journal" with such preci
sion as will ere long lead me into an en
viable notoriety. Thus he-soliloquized.
But his blissful anticipations were short
lived. A week had scarcely elapsed
after the publication of tho offensive ar
ticle when ''a change came o'er the spir
it of his dream." Intelligence from St.
Louis, envinced Lira for once, that his
Pegasus had soard too high R. S. Blan
nerhasselt was not the man whose char
acter could be assailed with impunity
What shall I do, exclaimed the man ol
the Journal? They say Mr. lilaurfDr
hassett is coming up to investigate the
matter. I will publish a retraction be
fore his arrival." Accordingly, in the
next number of his worthy sheet, he ac
knowledges that iiis conduct was "im
prudent, improper, and not right." This
will fix the matter, thought he. But
another difficulty here presented itself.
What apology would he offer for his im
prudent course! No one but a man of
ingenuity could ever have hit upon a
belter plan. Hear kind reader, his apol
ogy. "Indisposition!!" It reminded
us no little of the mischievous boy, w ho
after committing some offence, when the
switch was euspended over him, sobbed
out in extenuation ot his fault, mother!
1 had the belly-ache.
When the editor of a public journal as
sumes the reponsibility of heralding to
the world the name of a prominent man
in connection with the gravest accusa
tion, the public may reasonably iufer
that he who makes, the publication, is
sustained by sufficient evidence. But
in this caie there is no justification. In
a note addressed to Mr. I'.Ianncrhasselt,
by the editor of the Journal, in which his
reasons for perpetrating this unhallowed
outrage upon private character, are set
forth, he says that the only testimony
which he had "w orthy of a moments at
tention," was the statement of a gentle
man f this town, who was told by an
individual in Troy or some where else,
trial Mr. Treat of St." Lou's, Lad "giYen
the opinion" that Mr. Blannerhasselt was
guilty. And this opinion afforded good
grounds for branding with infamy a man
of unspotted fame.
But pray, why did not Mr. Treat make
this publication. He too is an editor?
But we must conclude by recommend
ing our neighbor to the sympathy of the
public, fully assured that he has placed
himself in a most ludicrous attitude
The Bowling Green Journal publish
es, in connexion with the arrest of a
gang of scoundrels in Lincoln county,
the names of some ot the citizens of St.
Louis. It pretends to have heard that
one of the arrested scoundrels said some
thing from which the inference is drawn
unfavorable to some of our citizens.
The infamous libel of the Journal
will, we learn, be noticed promptly by
the gentlemen affected thereby, and in a
proper way. The editor of that paper
should be more cautious in circulating
verbal renorts. set afloat bv arrested
horsethieves and counterfeiters against
respectable persons to put officers on a'
wrong scent. He can have no excuse
for the use he has made of the names of
some of our citizens in connexion with
this mutier, and should make ample a-

In Vera Cruz, on the inornini of

from that place, widi about 1,000

that he should either pronounce or
izive up the command, lie took the
former alternative, and declined in
favr of the Congress.
The populace, which then filled the
Plazu to overflowing, commenced
their rejoicing. The portrait ol
Santa Anna was thrown from the
balcony into the squaic, torn to pie

ed in a bonfire. Then the populace
commenced the shouts death

at bay by the respectable part of the
citizens, who bad prohibited to the
Com. General the introduction of a
single soldier in the sq tare. The
people were only appeased by the
promise of the Commandant, and all
the obnoxious persons should tie ex
pelled from Vera Cruz. The excite
ment lasted till ten at night, when
quiot was restored.

endeavor to force his way into Vera
