A. P. RICHARDSON, Editor. McGrtnor, Jova. Wed'f, \ov. 11, '57. Pride. In our hrwf *s »1w condrc'or of newspaper, w« tLink we hare obs'rred that journalist® arc mote frcqnontlv ru^taiucdinbcai iiom by Pride than bj A3 oner. Whether thoac who employ the press comc up to their obliga tion* or not, the I apcr is expected to make its appearance regularly, the hands always re quired to be on band to do up a job, the local natters .-elating to a town, village or neighbor hood are expected to be fbhrd up and prepared for the taste of the reader, the carrit ii slightly e*med if he does not deliver the paper prompt ly, tHo alvert:«rmenU are looked at with a rlorencsB of scrutiny that sometimes seems unkind, and if a word is out of order or a dis play line in a place not agreeable to the taste of the employee, 'Mite devilis to pay," Sure enough. TV re ia no business where a greater amount of promptitude end care is exacted by patroniz ing public, and yrt there is none that is so uni versally ncglected by those who boast of fur nishing it support. A gentleman eteps into •our office and after passiDg the time of day, he blandly informs you that he has concluded "to take your paper,' for which conclusion he ex pects you to be extremely grateful. His name is entered, Poet Office, County ard State duly recorded, and after a common jlace or two your patron retires. For a rhole year you write his name and address every wetk on a sheet that co^ts you over one cent before it was printed on, and your pny for the whole wotk is less than 4 cent a week Ifjoti get the monoy at the end of the year, you may count yot rself lucky—the more general ftylc is to keep on DMiding it until the account becomes too Urge to collect without a suit-—about tbis time the office ia insolvent, the printer abandons it, and it is sold by the fheiiff to a new man who can mutter means or credit rnocgli to run it through a second series with like res'ilta. As ii is in subscriptions, so isitiii Job*rod Advertisements. They are ordered with a magnanimous liberal y. but in very many cases all the profits they bring are selfishly appropriati to private use, and the rint-T is remetr.bcred only ns a tome thing which it is the duty of the town and country "to support!" He is thought of possibly as a *ftrst rate fellow'' and the patrou hardly knows how to dispense with him, but that important thought how much do I owe him" and its more important consequcncc, the payment of the debt, rarely inteiferes with the genoral tenor of his r*flecions on Stocks and Lands and Trade Ac., 4* Sow when the paper appears regularly, the Jobs are executed promptly, and your Adver tisements occupy apace to Ihe exclusion of matter of uhlic interest, and you fail to pay for day of it, whether is it Pride, or Money, that keeps that office up 1 True, the Printer may have money to begin with and some crcdit to continue, but it has been truly s.id that "always taking out and never putting in. fconn comes to the bottom,'' and after the means necessary to set a ress agoing arc run out, the only xen'ible course would be to stop and wind but horc rows in Piidc. The Proprietor hag obtained a little notoriety—his name is familiar to the gen eral reader in his faction, and known to his "brethern in distress" throughout the state.— The reputation of the pnpT and by identifica tion, his own character, is at stake and rather than "stop the press'' he struggles on through difficulties, borrows a little money here, a little paper there, begs the hands in his employ to be patient, ouch and sm patron* ill cei tainly pay up sho:tly—until, like the soul spoken of by gRnc poet, he "Rave* round the walls of hi* mr teoeneat Till forced at la.«t to (be tromendoas Targe XI* tinlu at once to ercrylaMing ruin." Wc dont know if the liars are correctly «i*d. but the idea is there and that is all we after.) to not understand us as applying these re jections to our own case, or taking this method to wake up our patrons. As a 1 odj of men we do not believe the names of a better paj ing cr»wd can be found on the books of any office in 4#ierica, but we have noticed within a few weeks that over twenty of our Western cotera poraries have expirtd or announce themselves in the lart gaap, and seeing this going on aroind OS, set us to thinking the subject over. If a newspaper can not be sustained it is villanons to induce its e«tablishment to bring a locality Into notice at the expense of the time and means of a claw of men who are gent rally disposed to rely upon the promises of the public. If you have urged a printer to como among you on pledges of support, it is your duty to work for Ids interest, or at all events to pay him for what ho does- If his business is one that you can not dispense wi'h, do not reap all the advan tages resulting from its prosecution—the inereas. «d value of your lands, your lots, the instruc tion of your families, the enhancement of your ptofits in business of all kinds,—and leave him to retire a pauper or to bo overwhelmed with debts contracted for material to secure you those Meanings. "Right is right''and the printer is as much entitled to his pay as the Grocer, the Blacksmith or the Fanner. Our printers get their pay whenever they ask for it,—the reason is that our customers do not require rs to run a paper on Pride. When that gets to be the fash, km with the readers and patrons of the North Imra Times, our pride will not permit us to run ft. If the printing business is not as necessary to the public as it is to ourselves wo will dry it •p and try something else. We believe there rre too many papeis in the west and in the United States generally there are more than public necessity requires, but they arc easily got rid of on honorable grounds. Go to the Publisher, pay him every cent you owe him and tell him like a man that yon can no longer buy his services—do not starve him out, patch his little all with executions and attachments and then taunt him with Lusincss incompetency,be cause he was man enough to suffer that your Interests might be advanced Money is scarce now, and through the winter H'will probably be scarcer, but there is no rea son why the small bills due a printing office Aoukl not be partly paid at least. Sharp col lections are not expected—-a "fair rhake" is all any Newspaper establishment requires to enable it to swim. v PaAiaiE CoL'Kty.a.—We remark a very mate ifal improvement in the Editorial columns op this Wisconsin neighbor- Has Merril become eo elated with the fine race made by "Jim'' tha* Ike is spreading himself a little, or has our yoang friend Fielding baptised his quill in the Ink-editorial of the Courier O/lice No mattei who does the writing, it will pass muster with a large number of more pretentious sheets.— The Courier has the honor of being the fiist ghset to issue a detailed Telegraphic Report from the Pruirio du Chien office. If times were Hot so erual tight we should hope to see a Daily Courier shortly. As the prospect now is, news papers like other interests, arc kept on low alse.—The story that a servant girl oa her 'Aftath bed confew.ed to assisting Madeline ffaailh in poisoaiag her betrothed lover, is now jmnounced a hoax. The mystery of hie death femaioi unexplained. 87 Fives, the Congressional Globe PaUidii er, is already in the field for subscribers to the Reports for the jjfroecfciog jM-tekm of Con- Correction Iiis not !n that th* Tresi !ent id wr'tten a letter «»f eeamire to Walker and Stant« be cause of their rjrctiug the illegal vote of Ox ford and MGce prol ine's and given the certifi cates to the'• Free Stnte men." The ground upon which the "shiiekers 'have s'ood is grow ing sn aller and smaller. Their lntt hope is a fight between Wulker and tl e 1 'resident, and the prospect of political extinction causes them to report as true that which thrir imagin ations conceive to be neeegsnry to their exis tence. One rf the conditions tpon which Walker acccj ted the position e now occupies, was that he should be guided alone by his own judgment. The Republicnn papers had it that "Walker was invested with absolute pow er,'' and thereupon an extra wail went up about the time ho wan appointed.

It is supposed that Ten B:oeck the American Sportsman won near half a million on lie victoiy of Pryo ess! His for mer defeats had cau.«ed heavy odds to be offered against the mare and as he was shaip enough to get all the side bets possible, his winnings arc very large—enough to pay him well for the trip. His defeats at first may have been de signed in order to draw John En'l into a large investment. The Billion in the Bank of France had de creased 35,000,000 francs. In the Pank of England a decrease of nearly $3,000,000 is re ported. Thirty courimc:ci:il hovsrs had failed at Zurich. Vienna is er.sier commercially. The Star of the West reached N.

New Bridge. The Courier infi«rrts its that tfoe tdgc across the Wisconsin at Bore it's Ferry is completed, the teams having crossed it fr.r the first time on Wednesday the 4th. We are glad to bear it— that old Ferry, in April 1854, came near closing ocr business for us (we ihought,) and wc arc happy to know that the waves of the Wisconsc arc no longer to be tioubled—not worthy of credit. The Toll is not unreasonable, only 50 cents for a Team of two ho:se*,25 lor one, 10 cents for a footman, &.<\ This enterprise will open i.p to l'rairic du Chien a rich country which Fhe has at yet only tasted, not enjoyed, and the cffcct mrst be felt at once in the in creased activity of trade and the better supply of their family marlrct.

If you like Sentiment, Love, Patriotism or Fun, go end hear this band.— Admittance £5c?s., or a club of 4 for $1,0U! Close ok Nav.gat-ion.—The weather here is quite wintry and the prot-peet of an early close. Lake Pepin will be impassable on the 2 th, and hence St. Paul may ba considered out of the world. The Key City went up on Saturday, and we fupposc the will scarcely make another trip. The Occan Wave one of the Prairie du Chicn Packets and the Cily Belle, bade us good bye on Saturday morning, and steamed south for Galena winter quarters. Boats will run for some weeks yet as far as the foot of the Lake, but as freights are light, there will be but little induce ment to run the ri?k of being frozen in for the next five months. Navigation on the Missis sippi is drawing to a close. Printing Paper.—The paper rsed at this office is from the Humboldt Paper Mills near Milwaukee Noon ax & McNAB arc the Pro prietors. We advise all o»r Iowa end Minne sota Exchanges to send tbem an order with the cash. The price is 11 cents per pound. If you deal at Milwaukee you can have your stock delivered at Prairie du Clm-n any time through the winter. Have your packages marked by '-Holton's Express" and all will be O. K. See Advertisement. Sxow.—A traveller from the north tells us that Ihe snow at Hastiugs on the morning of Sunday, was eigld inches deep. This seems too terrible for belief. A great portion of Minne sota is in a state of destitution—no mouey is in the comtry—large boditB of emigrants are huddled together in places entirely new and e mote from supplies, and now the rigois of a northern winter are upon them nearly a month before they were anticipating it Wc dread the rccital through the press of the horrors in store for those who are without provisions or money and shut out from the world by a half year ot ice and snow. Man Shot.—Richard Carter, President of the Anthracite Bank, wss shot dead on the evening of Nov. 4, in the parlor of the St. Lawrence Hotel, Philadelphia, by T.

Carter bad accused Smith of reducing a ward or adopted daughter of his. Smith says he met her at a boarding schooP, married her and he had a child in four months—he then discovered she had been the mistress of her adopted father, and the shoot ing was in revenge. Smith was arrested. St. Lous, Nov. 4.—A bill legalizing the bank suspensions of Missouri till Nov. 1st, 1858, passed the House on the 3d, by 15 majority.— Thirty-three of the sixty member? of the Con stitutional Convention of Kansas had assem bled. Walker and Stanton were at Lawrence on the 21th. The Convention had c'one noth ing. 1 hree hundred tr#ops were at Lccompton. Several rotcstd against the granting of certifi cates to pro-slavery members, were in eourse of preparation, or threatened. Ccnleitu Ai'v.—Paul it Flynn now run tliisinduMriously-got-up newspaper. We gave it a first rate notice once and opened an exchage with it, but it failed to come for a long time, and we gave it up cs dead. It looks very well now and we wi*h it "dollars and dimes'* by the peek. Galena AnvEKiisEa.—Mr. H'w^btco has I urctaMtfUw wMetafw*e»lp tMveffe* Mitchell. This lively town in MiUhell County must be i.sh:n? along at a t,ood pace considering the times. The Republican of Ocio!*r29, informs us that Geo.

The rales we know are not large, lut it mi st be remembered tint but a few months ago the land was entered where now rtan'ls a beautiful mkI trowing vi!Iate, Voasting a large and to all appearance, a well atronix'd news paper, ihu:chc% school houses, s'o e% me chanic shops, mills and all the other beginnings of a lar^e town. The diversity of intc rest^ in thia $3,800 sale is materially advantageous.— Seven mm will work for the improvement of that village where the same transfer of property to on# man, would not result in so much bene fit. The towns of Kiceville and Turea are spoken of by the Republican as advancing with the same step to importance as Mitchell. We ave glad to hear it all and it will always afford us pleasure to publish descriptions of all towns of Iowa and Minnesota of sufficient prominmcc to justify a notice on the part of their proprie tors or residents. The more active the interior country improvement, the more valuable be comes our key to the River and Eaa'ern trade McGregor is of value only as a business mart for the immense country west of it.

Co., of the city of New York For some years past these, gentlemen have done a larger business in Western securities than any other firm, and their early recovery from the the sho -k speaks leudly for the credit of that class of paper with which they are mostly identified. This recuperation is also a gratify ing proof of the better times coming. Slaves.—At Cincinnati on the 3d, three slaves were seised by writofhabcuscorpi s,issued by Judge Birgoyne at the instance of Thornton Withers, of Petereburgh, Va. Withers claimed them as hi*, and on the trial the next day the result was their delivery to him as their owner ho wus conveying them to Virginia, when they were wrested from him. The slaves were im mediately convened to Kentucky. Warehoipf. I.vjoction.—Mr. Kirkpatrickof the fi of Kirkpatrick fc Weeks, of the Mc. Gregor Warchoise, returned from the East on Monday, and the Injunction spoken of by us last week was dissolved. The business proceeds as before. It afords us much pleasure to make this statement, and we have every reason to be lieve this firm ia out of the reach of farther panic. n i Con'axt fe Wili er.—These, gentlemen arc laying in a large stock of Fruits and Vegeta bles for Winter use. Their Apples at only $4,£5 per Bbl. now, will be worth $8'00 in the spring, and where it is possible to preserve them from the Frost every family should pro\ide a sufficiency to cheer 'he home circle during the long season of ice and snow that is before us, C. & W. are selling some beautiful Swncr Po tatoes about these days—if you would make yourself forget the hard times that are so much talked of, buy a bushel of these delicacies and politely request your better hvlf to cuok a peck of them for dinner you'll kuow nothing but pleasure us long as they last.

Among tho good things of life, we noticed in our walk up street, a lot of tho largest Swxut Potatoes we ever *aw. They were at the st ore-of Scott & Bhothzb and sold by them at only $2,00 a bushel—this is but fifty cents more than hi cli delicacies usually aell nt in a portion of Indiana now some thirty yearn settled. Scott fc Brother deal extensively in Apples, Pears aud in other Fruits. Their business con nection with Galena, St, Louis and other south ern cities, gives them fine conveniences for pro curing the earliest supplies of southern vege tables and they arc enabled to futtiieh them at very reaioniblo rates. The Stat* of the Country—Its Wealth. We take it, that as a people, we arg always cilher running into debt or getting out of it.— The excellent rule of ''pay as you go," is beau tiful in theory, but commercial transactions are so dependent one upon another, that its exact enforcement in every case would be neither wise nor expedient. The resent sudden transition from a credit too much cxjian'ted for real profit to either patty, to the cush-in-hand ractice, is what makes nearly all the difficulty now. The true medii must be ascertained and kept and insisted on by men of common sense with un flinching firmnew, and in a comparatively short timo the wheels of commerce will move on regularly a^ain, an 1 those who have not trans gressed against safe nrinci| lea too far w ill re cover themselves, and the rich may ride and th-? independently pour will w»lk as heretofore.
