To the Patrons of the Southern
In associating myself with the present Ed
itor in conducting the editorial department of
the Southern Reveille, it is becoming that I
express the sentiments and opinions which
will govern me in such a capacity, and will be
reflected so far as I am concerned, in the
coilm of the paper.
Believing the Democratic creed as set
forth and upheld by tbe National Democratic
party to bo the means whereby the blessings
of civil and religious liberty, bequeathed to
, 6 J f .
us by our ancestors, are sustained; ,t will be
my aim faithfully to adhere to the glorious
principles of that faith aa taught by its
AP 0811 «»
I deem it useless to enter into a minute
discussion of all the questions at issue be- ,
tween the two great parties of our country,
and «herefc«-® «hall merely enumerate some of
them without going into details. Believing
that the so-called protective system to b« but
a protection to tbe " lords of the loom and
apindle," and believing it encourages monop
oHee, upholds the insolence, and panders to
the avariciousness of one section of the coun
policy. But at the same time it is my opin
ion that a tariff for revenue is necessary, is
proteclivc enoueh, and will be found sufficient
try while it oppresses another ; it is but na
tural that I should array myself under tbe
banner of that party opposing so ruinous a
so Jong as it is applied with that discrimina
tion which will place the burden of govern
ment on all classes in proportion to their
in tbe

Believing in tbe sovereignty and indepen
dence of the States, and that the Union is a
federal compact, with limited powers delega
ted to tbe general government ; I shall ever
be found with tbe party which resists the sub
version of our liberties by a means so mon
strous os an advocacy of centralization or of
consolidation. Ami furthermore, that the
powers of the general government are deriv
ed legitimately from the people, and that
these powers are delegated, not surrendered ;
I believe the administrators and makerjof
laws are accountable to the people for the
manner in which their duties are performed,
and that no mysteries should be inaooesaible
to publie search.
In the démocratie republican ranks I will
always stand, and for tbe diffusion of demo
cratic republican principles will I always bat
So much for principles; and as regards
myself personally, I hope, by devoting all my
energies to tbe business I have undertaken,
tbe Reveille may not loose tbe favor and pat
ronage ao liberally extended while ander tbe
exclusive control of my able associate.
New Boort—We have received from some
person, a pictorial life of Gen. Scott, and are
much obliged to the unknown publishers for
& giving tbe juvenile world such a lucid histo
ry of that great man. The
one to please the children an
to throw them into tbe most intense excite
ment. We expect to see the little boys oft
our town in paper caps fighting the battles of
Mexico with their wooden guns. We are
* sorry that we cannot tell the little folks where
to find this delectable history.
(TP-To our mind there is no better proof
of tbo soundness of the démocratie nominee
than the eoum now pursued by nearly all of
tbe Soott papers throughout tbe Union—es
pecially their two face», their Northern and
Southern tactics. While the whole démo
cratie press of the nation are rallying around
Pierce and the platform, the whig press of
the North are spurning the platform and sup
porting Soott, and th# Southern whig papers
are supporting the platform with Soott on it
Southern whig papers are endeavoring to
prove Pierce an abolitionist, while Northern
whig papers are earnestly endeavoring to oon
vtnoe the abolition voters, that Pierce is an
advocate of slavery ! This is proof to our
minds that the democratic nominee i* a na

been influential in nominating Atwood for
Governor, being nominated, Atwood declared
himself to some frecsoilers as opposed to
the fugitive slave law; Pierce learning this,
went to sec him. but Atwood would not re
