April 13, 1F. FRANCIS KING.
1j Our friend, Charley Test, is on a tour of observa
tion through the west. He has published in the New
Castle Courier a letter dated Jefferson ville in this State,
in which he informs the reader of the particulars of a vis
it he made to the State penitentiary, and says he there
met "wiiny fnmilinr (cc." No one. doubts it.
U One loco, iu this city, more tapir nt than his fellows.
has discovered a new reason why Mr. Smith should not
lie re-elected to Congress. He says: "Elect Smith, and
he will become more zealous against the democrats than
t-vcr, he will use greater exertions to deleat our meas
ures, and when his time expires, the rascally whigs will
let t Holloway his successor." Now, wouldn't that !
tirf'il! The old man, in this, doubtless sees in no distant
perspective, the perfect annihilation of locofoeuisiii.

In in to take one at a time. When they have di posed of
Mr. Smith, it will be time enough to talk about his sue,

U.j'Our venerable friend David lluowrr, we iind. r,t.ind,
is lo b out upon us in the Jeffersonian of this day. We
have been told by several persons that it is to be extreme,
ly severe, and that the pent-lip wrath of his vindictive
mind is to Iw let upon us in the fury of a perfect sluice
gate. We hope, however, that the near approach of dog
days has not had any serious influence upon his mind
and that ho may live long to enjoy the unenviable rep
utation he has won by his subserviency to the locos, and
his base treachery to the whigs who once placed an im
portant trust iu his hands. But, permit us here to say,
that perron ti lly we have no ill feeling towards Mr. Hoover
Against his private character we have never uttered one
word ; but us a public officer as a member of the Se.

are a member, his acts are fit subjects for our review,
ami we shall speak of them with that freedom which our
duty demands, unawed by threats, denunciations, or bil

of those who penitently confess their sins ; hut the hard

JOHN Fl.M.KV, KMl.
It is the natural right of every man to be a candidate
for public office. Every man, however, owes a duty to
society, to the political friends with whom he acts, and
to his country, which are to be performed as good policy
may dictate. While Ave admit that it is the natural ot rr
Hrrrrtl rijf lU of Mr. Finiey to be a candidate for Congress.
we believe he violates that good faith which devoted
friends of great political measures have a right to expect
one iro... o.ioiuer, w. .e.l i.e p.aces .1, nisei ,1, . pos.i.oi.
calculated to endanger the success of those principles and
the wholesome policy for which the Whig party contends, j
We do not intend to enter into any prrmtnal controversy I
with Mr. Fiuley, and we had hoped that iu his communi
cations to the public he would have pursued such a course
as to have given us no cause for any public notice of him,
whatever. Had he confined himself to the advocacy of
Ins claims lo a seat in Congress, our pen should not have
traced his name. But as he has entered the arena of con
troversy on the broad ground has squared himself for
the fight, and thrown down the glove, the chivalrie em
blem of defiance, we deem it our duty to act upon the
tlctt nsice. Wo seek no controversy with him. We shall
make no attack, but we shall repel the aspersions he ap-H-ars
disposed to throw upon Us, and the w hig party of
this county and district.
We gave his address to the public without note or com
ment. We were willing even to let it pass in that way ;
but the second article from his yen, requires that his
whole position should be briefly reviewed.
Mr. Finiey, in his address says:
"Wilhout saying any thing in disparagement of the
eandidale nominated, there is enough to be found in the
rxrMO maunrr iu which that nomination was rotten trt.
and the prosenpttre asperity w ith which a small portion of
the whig party seek to carry it out, to determine a large j

ere at measures of public interest, but tliev will not sub-
r.ot u. the tvrannv of iKirtv when thev call hear the rat-
.img it chains?' ;
How was the manner of Mr. Smith's nomination rx
clusief ? A public invitation, published in every whig
paper in the district, was given for all aspirants to a seat
in Congress to announce themselves as candidates for
nomination. A large couvenUou of the w higs of this
couuty w as held, and the plan for that nomination adopt-
ed. Mr. Finiey liaviu-r been regarded as a whig, good and ;
true.it was hi right to become a candidate. He knew
tJtis. Did he proclaim theu that he w as a candidate' Did
he not approtmte the plan, and did he not acquiesce in it
Jid he not on the first Mudy in Aprd pain- iptc in the
"""u"il,"ja of Mr Smith, by voting for htm a his tiit
aud oul' thoice ? lna ho theM hear tl,e '''"ilitt "f ?V
'.chain" of parly ? We have been informed that he did
, vote for Mr. Smith ; if bo, and chains were rattlnl, he us
l sifted iu doitir it. But there was tio tyranny iu that no
mination ; it was a freewill ollerin tf the whirrs of the
. District. Who has been guilty of proscription ? Who
i has been proscribed ? Has it been a whiff ? or have the
' sympathies of our friend Finiey Ijeeu excited for the lo- .
com of this District ? Are the leaders of that party wor
i thy lite sympathies of an honorable man ? We think not. ;
j If thry have been proscribed it has been for the odious j
j measures and principles they advocate.
JMr. Finiey savs: '-a free ueople may conform to party !
i organization, so far as to secure unity of iictiou on some '
h ' .' - . ,
' great measures of public iuter-st.' This is precisely !
1 ' . - j
! what We are contending for, and Mr. Finiey bv consenting
l " ' . .
to In-come a can iiiiate for Congress at this time, is doing ;
i " j
much to break uu that "unity of fiction''1 and "porta or-ja- i

' ' ' J ' I
i inrrrest are to ; "secured. l'oes lie not regiru ti

relieved by that measure ? Borne down as she is by her !
public debt, to lie relieved of a portion of her onerous
taxes would be a blessing. Are not all the important
measures for which we contend ut slake? And while Mr
Finiey admits that, to secure such measures, "party or
ganization" is right and proper, yet, iu violation of that
admission, he is laboring to defeat it.
Mr. Finiey has written an article to the editor of the
New Castle Courier, which shows that for oi
he has forgotten that courtesy which is due from one
gentleman to another. The unbounded benevolence
tiie universal sympathy the great charity the deep
forbearance, wliieh he commends so highly has been
swamped in the feelings of the selfish partisan. Does
Mr. Finiey contend lor principles, why not then vote for
Mr. Smith'.' He is admitted by all parties to Is: a gentle
man of talents, unbending integrity unflinching iu his
devotion to Whig principles, and in every way worthy
the support of his political friends. He has been once to
has made an extensive acquaintance with the
members, ami has obtained a haracter and inlluenee,
lh.it but f.-w men in the country could have obtained in
the shoit space- of time he has In-en there He would
from these reasons 1m- more able to advance the policy
and sustain the measures for which Air. Finiey contends.
Why then should he wish to sup-reede Mr. Smith' Does

But Mr. Finiey in the arli- ! alio ,'. d to, accuses certain
" tra!ilrr on tlx tripwi"' by which term we suppose he
means us a little) with paving the way for the nomina
tion of a favorite party champion, and then m i n-ifi' fiirr
public opinion to carry it out." This is certainly a high
complimi nt to the Whigs of this District. Is it not a hl
upon their character as honest men? Do the Whigs of
this District permit the humble editors of tin- Whig press
to wnniifiicttire opinions for them? We know no such
Whigs, and if Mr. Finiey does, it must ! attributed to
his associations. Th members of the Whig party iu this
district think for themselves. They n--ed no dictator
neither won! 1 they submit to one. And we can assure
Mr. Finiey that w ln-n he was himself a xt rnihlli r of
the tripod," the Whigs did not nut even permit Aim to
dictate to them.
Mr. Finiey in the article referred to, talks about King
Caucus, ami places it iu glaring capitals. Will he tell us
where that important personage holds his council? Who
are are his cabinet ? Who constitute the cabal ? We
know of no such power, and Ave unhesitatingly declare
that no such power exists iu the w hig party. We further
declare tli.it there never was a caucus held to secure the
nomination of M Smith, though Mr. Finiey insinuates
that the delegates from litis county in the Cambridge con
vention "were picked up for the occasion, or went on
tln-ir own hook." Is it possible that Mr. Finiey would
intentionally pervert the truth ? Does he not know that
a direct vote was taken in everv township iu this coiinty
e i- i . r . . .
ior a candidate lor 1 ongrees that the vote thus taken
w as regularly returned to the Central Committee conn-
ed, and Lib! votes found to Is- for C. B. Smith, and five

committee was instructed to take the vote to Cambridge
and in the convention, cast the vote of the con nty of

signed him ; and that other members ol the committee,

JOHN FIN LEY.
i. eiureviile, j uiy t Itli, l"l.
Our friend Finiey appears determined to write himself
into notice, if he cannot speak his way. Well, it is his
right, and we cheerfully accoid to him ample room in
otir columns. He
is most w elcome, and w hile he is eti-
! deavoring to (isliiiguish himself, he will do well, if he
' does not extinguish himself politically. .Mr. Fiiib-y iu-
! quires wherein he has been guilty of a dereliction of duty
! as a whig, by b.-romiii-r a candidate. That act of itself
; is a breach of duty as a whig, though as a man he has a
' right to do it. Wh -n Mr. Finl-y throws himself back oil
, his reserved rights he has a perfect right to do many
i things. If he withdraws from the brotherhood of whigs.
cal opponents should remain banded together as th.-v
have been declared to be by the " cohesive power of pub-
lie plunder," would the voice of a whig from this county
ever be heard in the halls of the legislature ? Of course
not. No party organization, and every man who had
vanity to suppose he could tr-t a few votes, would an
nounce himself as a candidate, and on the day of the
election there would be a half dozen whigs in the field
and but one loco. Who would he elected ?
It is by union that religious societies are doing so much
good, in the dissemination of the Bible throughout the ;
world. It is bv union and concert of action that all so-!
cieties prosper and dispense their blessings. Suppose for
a moment that a Methodist were to declare himself inde-
!elldeiit of church orfraliizj.fi. in. .liiii st ut. for himsietf
II- would have the undoubted ricbt to do so, but what
could he do ? Nothing. He would have no power of
himself, and he would just so far dissipate tiie power of
'he hody which he left. Suppose this man should attempt
and succeed iu sow iug discord 111 the church, and finally
dissolve the whole organization, would he not be justly
tie)nluce(1 as a ...sorgamzer, and as a traitor to the best
i ;,.i,.resis ..f soci.-t-.- 'n.- ,i.,v which a man hi
, t i ;
ts sacred, and true patriotism will prompt a man
j 10 a. 1 111 sucn capacity as wui euao.e mm most enectual-
ly to serve his country. A man may declare himself in-
dependent of ail civil government ; b.t will a good citi-
i 1 e
But it is not our object to w rite an essay on
the power of association.
Mr. Fiuley complains that committees have w aited upon
persons who have expressed themselves friendly to his
election. Now, Mr. Finiey, no committee ever did visit
a friend of yours. We have heard the charge bt-forcj and
your information is incorrect on tins point.
Again Mr. F. pays a high compliment to his friends by
declaring that they are afraid to express their preference
for him that they dure not let it be knowu for fear of
losing a dime! Is this the liberty of which you boast.
You leave the whig party because it is loo tyrannical, but
you da re not avow your independence- We know of no
whig who is afraid to proclaim upon the house-tops ius po
litical preferences ; but ' Jrtdrj adt nt Whigs" may not
be ot" that character.
We fear Mr. Fiuley is imposed upon by those ho give
him political information, for we can assure him that h
has mistaken the character of our people. We had sup
posed that '2.i year residence among them would have
prevented lus being imposed upon by designing friends,
if not unprincipled political opponents. '1 he imi-mn-Jr
nt Whig"' says lliat at th-- time Kennedy ran, it wxs
known by a great many lugs and by the other candi
dates in time to give notice throughout the District. It
was not knowu that Kennedy was a candidate until the
Friday night previous to the election, Kennedy himself
denied it on the morning of that day iu Randolph coun
ty. The L'istrict at that time extended north nearly
miles, and it was impossible to send word that distance
tu two days.
But we have eiveu more notice to this Utter than
it really merits. It is but an attempt tu cry persecu
tion, and an effort to excite the sympathy of personal
