Men must love justiee more and their party less; tbey must not con aider every man a knave or a fool who differs from them; they must not be willing to sacrifice truth, neighborly feeling, private obligations and all the amenites of society, merely to support a partV organization wbi.h serveB the turn of a few selfish politicians. In order to attain this measure of civil itation it is by no means necessary that we should sacrifice our opinions, or act le. sincerely than we do. This professes to be a free country. It is not a free country we know well enough. Intol erance has made it a very despotic country. It is this which we oombat,and so long as we print newspaper we aball endeavor to be true to the spirit of that eimple rule which teaches as to do as we would be done by. If, in order to acom rjlish this purpose, it is necessary to or reet an error of factor opinion, we shall do so readily. Newspapers are no more immaculate than other - institutions. Thoy are compiled bastily from the na ture of the case. Enterprise, the quality of all others that makes a newspaper valuable, is liable to be led into mistakes. Assuredly, therefore, it is better for the reader to be made aware of aoeb mistakes, though they be even most aoeb mistakes, tnougu mej do . trivial, than to be kept in ignorance.

Jefferson Pavts' Secretary of State. That fact that holds with the church, as gospel, is the same with the civil heads, or Judges of this Japhetic Israel.

James & Polk, as law, closed the line, as with him iaw went tnrougu toe ibdu. Let the reader attempt to apply these truths to the seven northern judges of T.i1 TKia.miv ha rinnA to the two that Simeon Of the North had, as the two Adams', in the days of Israel's uni ty, and then again to the last as James Buchanan, that closed the line with Jaikaa whiln all the rent will be as much confused as Babylon.

There is no more obvious error than . . , that into which many often fall who misiaaa iur a virtue, a reeuiuiv, uuga Mj nireMOning persistency in some on. course of action, or the maintenance of some old opinion. ThfJ call it con- ' i ft J 1 - sistency, and have set it down as one in their list of the cardinal virtues. Preat men, who have adhered for a life time to some great and right principle, have deservedly made a merit of suoh adherence. But it does not follow that turning mule and never changing is in dicative of any thing but stupidity. Wise men change more often than they persist, because they are frail enough to err, and sensible enough to see an error.

C.WIJ persevere in doing and thinking as right as be knows how, in all tbe cl chang ing conditions and circumstances in which he is placed, and he will hare the right sort of consistency, and may do something worth bragging of. It is hard to tell which is the f reatest blockhead, be wbo is so inconstaot and fickle as to change without reflection, with every wind, and with hardly so muck reason as the weathercock, or be who obstinately stands his ground in .pile of all new light, reasons and common seose to the con trary.

General says: First That, as nu merous resignations of Sheriffs in Geor gia ar. tendered On tb. eve of an impor tant .Lotion, when there is no time to make appointments, such resignations ill not be accepted, Sheriffs who hav. been so long in office at th. sufferance of th. Commanding General will not b. permitted to resign until after the elec tion, and tb. faithful performance of their duties will bd required, under pain of trial by military commission. Se cond Ai many electors ' ar. neces sarily dependent upon another class for employment to earn their daily bread for their families, and as numerous complaints hav. been made that such la borers ar. to b. intimidated from voting by fear of loss of employment, employers ar. forbidden to control the voting of la borers by threats of discharge or other oppressive means, and they are told that any offense of this kind is punishable, on conviction before a military commission. Third It is th. duty and th. desire of th. commanding General to secure to voters an opportunity to vote freely, and without restraint, fear or influence of fraud; therefore, all good citizens are called upon to co-operate in efforts to hav. th. .lection conducted fairly, as required by law.
