That we have not bun more successful, was
no fault of the leaching, but owing entirelv
to the perverse and vicious character of the
material we had to work upon, being of that
description generally which prefers da; kness
liut to bo serious. In regard to the affair
at Madisonville, our notice of which seems to
have created very profoui.d sensation in
the neighborhood of the "Banner" office.
and lo hove elicited a more serious ai ticie
than wa usually meet with from that direelion,
many democrats piO'cnt were unsparing In
their condemnation of it, denouncing the
grand juror in Iui'-rti-o that we cannot ie.
peat in our columns without giving offence.
For out-self wo had no oilier feeling for the

luded to the subject at nil hul for the fact tnnt
we knew lie was nut the author of the inter

sense ofduiy, or an honest seeking after truth
but was the olisprfn&uf a little, low, dirty
contemptible party p'rejud ice, I bat any sans
men ou .ht to be ashamed of. To rebuke the
fell spirit of party malevolence and prejudice,
which is daily becoiniug more rampant and
nbus!ve, and which would not only destroy
social relations, create discord nnd ill-feelings
between ueighnors, but oven invade our halls
of justice, assail the judge on tho beuch, and
enter into the verdicts of juries it was tore
buke this fell spirit, thus manifested, that we
introduced the matter into our columns, nnd
not, s the Banner charges, for the purpose of
castigating the simple instrument used on the
occusiou. And we think the lianner would
be much more commendubly employed in as.
sifting us to put duwn aud banish the vile
spirit of prejudice, fraught as It is with to
much mischief, instead of encouroging it by
complimenting those who are trying lo bring
it to bear iu all 'the relations of life. He
