■ The besetting sin of many of those who at the

conductors of the public press, is their aptitude,
to leave the ground of fair, candid argument,
in discussing questions with their opponents,
, and to engage iu heaping personal abuse upon
all who do not happen to think or act accord
ing lo thtir notions, of right or wrong, m all
matters, social, moral, and polrtfcal. The fol
lowing extract i'rcni a speech delivered by the
Hon. William Gaston, before the Whig and

Civilized nations, by a perfectly under

regulated, and of which no extremity will
permit the violntiou without incurring uni j

ry slruggles of contending tactions should i
also have their fixed rules of war.; “ .Aon 1

warfare can ever be biought to coniine !
themselves to fair arguments addressed
solely to the understandings of their hear

those appeals lo the feelings and passions
of human nature, which open tjuieken the

it has been said of Charles Fox, that j
ftw circumstances contributed more to his

frankness impressed every one with a con
Motion of his sincerity, evinced his calm,
collected'; undoubtinff confidence in the

most favorable attention of his hearers.—

I mislies in the character and conduct of
j those who dissent from them, that they
: have neither leisure (o consider, nor (ho t
to bestow on their own moral in,prove
I nient. They wholly invert the maxim of
| benevolence and wisdom. They do no!
1 regard peifection a* the rule by which to
regulate their own conduct, but hold it np
as the standard by which to censure the
acts of others- They consider themselves
as making i very atonement for their own
violations of justice, truth, and charity, by
the keenness of their invectives and bold
ness-ol their denunciations against every
opponent, whom zeal, prejudice, or re
sentment, converts into a transgressor.—
Would that they could be prevailed on to
take lor their guide the counsel of Cole

the Memphis Gazette, published in the
Union ol this place, I Irani that the ciii
zens ol' Hardeman county, will instruct
their Representative tu vote lor the adop
tton ctf Mr. Guild's Resolution, to instruct
our Senators in Congress to vole lor ex
panging the resolution adopted by the Se

ca'use the people in their sovereign capa
city have ordained that their represents
lives before entering into their scrvic*
should take a solemn oath, to support tin
Constitution of the State ol Tennessee am
of the United States. ** To support,” at
, i understand it, means to act conformably

auy act that is forbidden, nor fait to d*
[ auy which that Constitution requites—ir
[ fine, that it is the supreme rule all my of
ficial acts. '1 hcrefore 1 cannot under am
possible contingency vote for Mr. Guild
Resolution, because in doing so, i shook
t instruct men to disregard or violate Ilia
very Constitution which thy ate swon
t to keep. Thai instrument requires tha
each Senator before entering on the dulit
of his office, shall swear to support it; i
' also requires each House of Congress tc
k«ep a journal of it* proceeding-*. Tlu
j intention of the fc,truer* of our Fedcra
Commiuti.-n, i;i requiring each House o
Congress to keep s journal of its proceed
ings, must have been, to preserve a com
p!*‘ie record of the nets anil doings of that
body. Now if w« instruct our Senator*
I to expunge, efface, obliterate or otherwise
destroy, any part of that journal, are we
not Count) indirtg them not to keep a jour
nal ; and if they obey us, are they not
, palpably neglecting to keep « journal of
their proceedings according to use pro vis
j ion of the constitution, which they have
| sworn to support? The Constitution is
j the tsuhv.uk of our liberty, and foundation
i id our civil lights ; hence It ha* beets the
' policy of our government to tiring every
officer thereof under the most solemn and
powerful motives, to support it und con
form to its provisions.
Hut asidu Iron* this objection, let ns ex
amine the policy isf such a measure. If
! the Senate of 1633, should expunge any
: part ol the journal of the proe* riling* of
Ho t. why may not the Senate of 1630 Or
any subsequent year, expunge any part of
’ the journal of tbo previous session ? All
j that would be necessary to produce that
result, Mould lie lor the ofiemled puity to
predominate, and as parties predominated
they might expunge in succession until the
journal*, (the only true and faithful Jwit
ness ul the acta and doings of (he Senate)
would become as ridiculous, as false,
Again, if the Senate should pass the ex
punging resolution, have the older to ex
! puogc executed, and obliterate the c.flen
. sive resolution, will not the. expunging
j resolution (peak language and bear a tea
i tiiuony that cannot he sustained? The
expunging resolution will charge that in

i ging the President with Climes, &c. ’I he
! journals would show that no such thing
