A band of lawless, thieving despera,
does, with the unenviable appellation of
' Platheads, have for somo time past committed
outrageous depredations upon the
honest portion of the nonulation of il>?
j Southern end of Illinois. The bund of
thieves number about three huudied.
For tho safety of life and personal
property, about five hundred of the most
i respectable inhabitants of that <S?tate
I formed themselves into an association

Tho aggrossions perpetrated by the
Fhuhcadft becoming insupportable, the
Regulators determined to u^c the most
vigorous measures to bring culprits to
justice. They accordingly procured
writs for the arrest t^n, or twelve of

and Precept that has been discovered, in
modern or even ancient limes, h s lately

by Jacob G'ollamer, Postmaster General,
to Thomas P. Crawford, Esq., of1
Pickens County, Alabama, and published ,
in the Pickens Republic of the 24th July.
1819. The Postmaster General is de- I
fending himself from the ch:..ge that he i

following is an extract from the letter:
"All 1 can say is, that 1 am not now, ,
nor have 1 ever been, ar Abolitionist ; and ;
L have always received the most bitter |
Opposition fiom the Abolition party in |
my own State. 1 have always held that ;
nothing should be done by the geneial

u ;
slavery in the several States. 1 have always
discountenanccd and opjnscd all
measures, public ?r ^rtvate, intended to
interfere with or disturb the institution us
existing with the States, as recognised by
the constitution."
So much for profession. Mr. Collamer i
was once a member ot Congress; let. us
examine his votes while in tiiut body, and
