to- MISSOURI AND THE MORMONS.
Wte Letter from a gentleman at tke West to kis friend
his DEAR Sin :-You ask me for information
ks, concerning the Mormon Irouble in Missouri.
ike. In giving it, I shall be compelled to state
ny particulars, that will stagger your belief;
al. and I shall be betrayed into a warmth of
ed, expression, which may be construed into
t." the signs of partizan bitterness, but which
he will be in truth only the language of honest
re- indignation. The series of wrongs and
.- outrages perpetrated on the Mormons, and
or. the closing acts of injustice, by which these
e; wrongs apd outrages were suffered to eas-
his cape, not only unpunished but triumph-ant,
from the elements of a PERSEcUTIom, which
is- in vain Iseeks a parallel in the history of
by our country. For examples of similar out-
his rages on the rights of justice and humanity,
ne I am compelled to resort to barbarous na-
1 ; tions and dark ages, which alone furnish
1is precedents to excuse the conduct of the
ou people of Missouri.
w The Mormons, I need not say, are a weak
nt and credulous people, whose chief fault is
of the misfortune of having become the dupes
I of a villainous imposter. They have an 4
ed excess of that, as to which the world at t
er large is exceedingly deficient, i. e. Fair f
's They have been mLsled; rnad they are to be (
ed pitied. But I have yet to learn that their
he faith taught them immorality. I have yet t
ng to learn that it encouraged disobedience to b
Dk the laws or encrtachment on the rights of c
t: any fellow-cilizens. a
n The Mormons wore in truth a moral, b
y orderly, and sober population. They were c
I industrious farmers, and ingenious mechan- t
; ics. They were busy about their own af- 1
d fairs, and never intermeddled in the con- c
w cerns of their neighbors. They were ex- 14
ut ceedingly peaceable and averse to strife, c
n quarrels and violence. They had establish- s
is ed schools, they encouraged education ; and P
kt they all had the rudiments of learning i]
e taught nnder our school system at ihe East a
is They had began to open fine farqi, and put o
e their lands in a high state of improvement, c
d Many of them were surrounded by numer- k
i- ous comforts, and some with even the ele- c
n ganeies of life. U
In all thee respects their condition Pre- .
h seated a broad contrast to that of their t
,h neighbors. Of these neighbors, many had C
A been there for years-much longer in fact bl
n than the Morrqons--and had made few ad- u
- vances upon the Indians they had displaced. el
, Mud hovels-a truck patch"-hunting and a
5t buckskin breeches were their highest aspira- tb
- tions. Letters they despised as much as
' they did the conveniences or comforts of al
e life. Bold, ,violent, unscrupulous grasping th
n -hating all who differed from, much more el
d who excelled them in the art-of living, the w
- relations between them and the Mormons Of
- may readily be inferred, by any man who in
- has read a single chapter in the history of ti
e human strife. es
e The Anii-Mormons(for I must distinguish
- this horde of demi-savges) are exceedingly pe
e intolerant- They are refuse Kentuckians th
n and Tennesseans, intermixed with Virgin- gi
e ians of the same caste, in whom the vice of en
sectional pride. which marks these people, Pe
and a prejudice against all others, especially in
those belonging to the free states, wbom w
they indisocriminately brand as Yankees-
is exaggerated to the highest pitclL Such vn
persons, if they could do it, would |ncorpo- a
rate in the constitution of Miaaouri, a pro- re
vision to prohibit the emigrating thither of de
any body not belonging to their own kith ex
and kin." They have also personal pride all
to an excess, which leads then% however, --
not to emulate a rival's exertions, but to lDi
envy hi success an~d hate his person. They
have, moreover, a grasping disposition, bo
which stimulatesH thema to acquire, bat not th<
industry and enterprise enough to lead them wi
to acquire honestly. They prefer plunder of
to fair means, if they can only conceal the Lu
knowledge of their foul play ; because r- rot
pine gratifies their propensities to force, In- mc
dolence and acquisition. They are bold, '
crafty, and when inspired by revenge, crier- Mec
getic and persevering beyond almost any br<
other race of men. To use the language in
of phrenology, had they well-devekoped and a c
well-trained organs of veneration, eot=-d- lh
entiousnca and benevolence, they would the
form one of the noblest races on record, *JN

was haggard, his hair dishevelled, and his
shirt was open at his throat ; so that I could
plainly see that he had not slept since I left
him. The wildness of his look I attributed
to the wine, which had not left his wits so-
"I IMike,' said he, as he lifted his trem-
bling hand, and passed it across his fore-
head, thou wast present last night: he hath
dishonored me!' Not to my mind, Bur-
ford,' returned I, in a mild tone; 'what is
done at night, over wine, is forgotten at the
morning meal.' I never can forget it,' he
answered bitterly. 'But thou wilt forget
it when thou hast slept.' 'Then may I ne-
ver sleep !' replied he, in a vehement tone:
wilt thou take that to him 7' As he ques-
tioned me, he handed me a letter; but as
he gave it, his hand shook, and his voice
quivered, like the broken tones of a harp-
string struck by an abrupt blast. I took the
letter from him, and read the superscrip-
tion. It was directed to Captain Howard.
'What does this mean, my good friend V'
said I. 'Can'st thou not guess? Dost
thou think that I would send thee with a
flag of truceT' He now put his hand on
my shoulder, and gazed eagerly in my face;
while I turned the letteroover and over, to
consider what I should do with it. Take
it! take it!' he said earnestly, grasping me,
at the same time, more rigidly. I marked
his agitation, and replied, 'Think well of it:
thou art not yet thoroughly sobered ; thy
whole body utembles; get .but an hour's
sleep.' 'Nay,' said lie, as he darted from
me to a side-board, and taking a decanterof t
brandy, lie quaffed the spirit greedily, 'I (
will sober myself thus! See, I do not trem- a
ble now !' and he held out his hand steadi- 5
ly, to give me the proof of it. 'Art thou t
resolved to send this?' said I. 'Ask me is
not! take it!' 1 shook my head, and, with- e
out saying another word, I dropped it into j
the fire. He stepped forward to seize it, .
but he was too late: it was already in t
flames. 'And you, too, insult me!' lie cried, t
as he fixed his iron griap upon my arm;-_
while his veins swelled, and his eyesalmost f
started from his head with convulsive ago- b
ny. God -forbid!' replied I, desirous of b
soothing his spirit. 'False! false! you all tl
despise me! you conjure against me, all of t
you! but I will be revenged !' He flung k
me from him, aMd made his escape by the 1
door. Poor Burford my heart beat for c
thee then, and my pulse quickens now every c
time I think of thee! But discipline must t
be enforced, even at the expense of thy life, C
erring man!" v
The Major's voice became plaintive, and C
a little touched with regret, as he uttered st
thissontiment. Dick Careless thought that d
at this moment it would not have cost the m
Major much to have sacrificed his principles %v
of military discipline; for the tide of hu- st
man kindness swelled strong in him, and n
went very nigh to break down all the facti- Il
Lious barriers of duty. He took his segar, a
and lighted it at the candle; and when the et
flame beamed upon his eye, it glistened in
more than was usual to it. tl
"When Burford" (said the Major, re- tl
:ommcncing) '-found that I would not de- 'I
iver the challenge for him, he applied to ot
another officer, who, careless of the conse- tl
quences, carried it to the captain. Twas a H
foolish thing! The Lieutenant could not er
have considered the danger in which he vw
placed himself. But the man was insen- tit
ate: Howard, it would appear, took no w
ioticc of the note, which served to provoke Iih
ihe Lieutenant still more. tie wrote to his de
ntagonist again ; and in the second chal- al

ng him with an exposure of his conduct if on
c did not fight the durel. The Captan con- au
uilted with a brother officer; and it was re-
oived, in order to stop the violence of the w(
lieutenant, that the Colonel of the regiment all
should be informed of it, Howard sought fe
nly to protect himself from the necessity cr

enerally known, lhe despised; and did not re

plinarian, and immediately ordered a th
)urt-inartial. ll was then only that the m,
vo parties became fully conscious of the ed
rleet likely to be produced by their con- an
uct. The Captain was not lew affl~cted wi

Now, I maintain, from all the facts in the
case and from K knowledge of the charac

ensued arose from the fact, that the Igor.

acquire a numerical superiority. Thepride
of their neighbors was touched ; their jeal-
ousy wag roused; their cupidty -excited ;

into full action, '-WhaV, reasoned they,

P so more readily, and a wide palm finished
,r the matter. Then, too,-God forgive him,
for the laws did not,-he loved liquor; and
re that-saving the murder-was the death of

said the Major, shaking his head. I've
known many a man bring disgrace upon
11 himself-(Balance smiled covertly)-and
d- make a bad soldier into the bargain.
"(Well, as I was going to tell you, I was
be was sitting in my quarters, over an egg and
n, coffee, and watching the gambols of a young
n. kitten, that played with the string of a cush-
e ion. At last, the creature leaped inside the
fender, and began to paw an inflamed piece
y of wood that had fallen from the fire.-
e Tom,' said I, have a care: thou wilt burn
thy fingers for thy folly.' I had scarcely
g spoken, when the pretty animal uttered a
e subdued human-like cry of pain ; and I
caught it my arms to comfort it. I thought
n the creature, liked my kindness, for it cast
its mild eye gratefully towards my face.-
While I was thus engaged, the door opened,
and Flint stood erect before me. Well,
Flint, didst thou hear the kitten cry ?" said
I. No, Sir: Lieutenant Burford's servant
hath.left a note for you.' Ah I ejacula-
ted; for all the circumstances of the pre-
vious night shot. across my mind : stay ;
s did the servant say aught No, Sir-
mQre than that the letter was important.'
( This, I fear, is a bad business, Flint,' said I,
while opening it. Very sorry for it.' I
" believe thee, for thou art not so deep a phi-
losopher as Rochefoucault.'
When I read the note, I was much affec-
ted by the incoherence which ran through
it. It was written evidently by a man in
great irritation of spirit ; and as its object.
was to request an interview with me, I re-
solved to go to the Lieutenant's quarters
forthwith. I arose from my seat, and Flint
brought my coat. Whether or not he per- q
ceived my concern, I know not; but as he t
was brushing my back, he said, You have 9
not finished your coffee, sir: the air is cold ,
without.' Never mind, Flint; I shall walk 3
briskly.' 'It were well, sir, for there is a r
rent here,' putting his cold finger on my d
shoulder. 'Ah, indeed was I steady last t
night, Flint' As ships are in a heavy sea. t
sir: you could just keep your eye against I
the wind.' 'Tis sad work, Flint, when men e
are lost in liquor : beware, boy,-this quar-
rel has arisen from it.' I know not that I a
should have told.Flint of the nature of the t
present business, if my mind had not been a
so totally absorbed in it. Hold! your honor A
will not answer the challenge!' said he, 0
standing between me and the door. Stand r
back!' returned I, in an angry tone. I had v
now advanced beyond him; and as I was l
going out, he caught me by the skirts of my a
coat, and earnestly begged me not to risk fl
my life. 'Thou art mistaken, Flint,' said n
I: I go to endeavor to save one.' That is
more like your honor,' he replied; and I c
went to the lieutenant's, li
While on my way to the lieutenant, I a
will relate to you what occurred on the pre- q
vious night." "An epical episode?7" in- ft
quired Dick Careless. "Yes." "Go on ; h
'tis according to rule." The Major received p
Dick's approving nod, and continued.- st
"There had been a party of us that night n
at a tavern; and as our spirits flowed with di
the wine, the merriment ran high. Poor a
Burford, as I have told you, was addicted to le
the glass ; and he did not, on this occasion, in
belie the character he had acquired. Many h
scorned him for it; but I knew his heart bet- st
ter, and pitied him. Captain Howard was sc
also of the party, a man of calm temper and L
generous feelings, but who had not much sl
respect for the Lieuternant. This was ow- 01
ing partly to the little esteem in which the el
Lieutenant was held by his brother officers, hi
and partly to a coldness which had arisen gi
between them, on account of some misun- di
der~standing relating to a shooting-match, b2
This affair was alluded to during the de- ci
bach, for such it was," added the Major, c<
reluctantly ; andl words ran high between t v
the two officers. Burford fancied the Cap- cf
rain treated him with contempt ; and being dt
ever alive to an insult, his impatient spirit th
could not brook the indignity. Inflamed at sc
once by anger and wine, and forgetting his in
station as an officer, he sprung up and col- fo
lared the Captain, I am neither a coward al;
nor a reptile Thou shalt suffer for It !'-- w.
Howard had more self-command ; and set- de

him to the ground. The rest of the party an

.-preachers -might have said-and some of
them evinced toward the Mormons, a most
unchristian-like" spirit---their influence was
very trifling. The people did not want the
.preachers to stimulate their hatred or their
No-it was the cause I have already inti-
-mated-to which this affair may be right-
fully traced. And let me assure you that
any body of men tike the Mormons, in all
respects, but their religion, would in the
same situation shared their fate. I wish you
to understand it as my deliberate opinion
that, at this moment, any body of people,
accustomed only to Jhe manners and senti-
ments of the inhabitants of the free States,
and rather pacific and yielding in their dis-
positions, however industrious, thrifty and
intelligent-would, if they attempted a set-
tlement on choice lands in Missouri, fare as
have the Mormons.
The Mormons were all this. They were
hard-working. They were sober. They
were frugal and thrifty. They had been
well taught in all that can he learnt in com-
mon-schools. Some of them were very in-
telligent. They were pacific and meek.
And, in all these respects, they differed
from their enemies.
Why conceal the truth 1 Let me tell you
that a body of farmers and mechanics from
Essex, Middlesex or Norfolk-however they
might differ in points of faith-if they
I should now be transplanted to the aban-
doned localities of the Mormons-would in
five years from this date be driven out by
fire and sword, precisely as the Mormons
have, and the General Assembly of Mis-
t souri would justliy it. Do you ask me how
the Germans continue to stay in Missouri ?
It will tell you. They have taken the worst
soils in the State--soils which nobody else
s will take. This is the true answer. The
I Germans are more disliked than the Yan-
1, kees; and if they should once presume to
interfere with the Kentucky prerogative to
f occupy the best lands-wo to the poor
I Germans--unless indeed they will fight far-
I der than the Mormons.
The game tried so successfully against
[ the Indians, has beenplayed off against the
I whites. And those whites are Yankees,
who cannot claim the enjoyment of a com-
mon right, in the face of certain other por-
; tions of their "fellow countrymen," be-
cause they are too conscientious-or too
e tender or too timid. But they must sue-
t cumb like the Indians!

been productive of great good, which even
Mr. Baltzell in "defining his position"-
writing his political letters-and in his
public speeches now admits--may not a1o-
ther organised upon principles somewhat
similar, be also desirable 7 It is well known
that the opposition to the Southern Life In-
surance and Trust Company, at the time of
its charter, originated principally in this
county. This was natural. The writer
himself deemed af that time, one institution
in aid of the planting interest sufficient, and
so it was perhaps for Middle Florida, but
the successful application of labor and use
of capital, has increased the amount of ag-
ricultural products. A demand for much
more capital is created, and the Trust Com-
pany, which proposes to enlarge its busi-
ness in this quarter, can afford the addi-
tional facilities so much required ; required
too by those who have not the mcans of
obtaining them elsewhere. The Trust
Company is as emphatically a planters
bank as the Union Bank-obliged as they
are by their charter to loan 3-5(hs of their
capital permanently upon real and personal
estate in Florida, reserving 2-5lhs for ordi-
nary banking purposes. There is no me-
dium so favorable for the introduction of
foreign capital, which is so much needed in
all new countries, as that afforded by Banks;
but the stock of such would never be sub-
scribed for and paid by men of wealth liv-
ing in the old states, unless the chartersare
liberal, and offer prospect of profile commen-
surate with the risque naturally attendant
on lending money in new and uncultivated
So sensible have legislators been in all the
new States and Territories of the propriety
of liberal legislation, and the necessity of
early introduction of capital, that they have
not only granted liberal charters and fixed
as between individuals, a high rate of inte-
est, but have in nearly all the Southern and
Western States, loaned the public faith and
credit to Banksr, and it has been restrvcd
for the keen far-sighted forecast of Florida
Loco Focoism, aye, Loco Focoism, to disco-
ver the ruinous tendency of such policy.-
In Florida too, than which no section of the
Union more requires additional capital to
increase her agricultural exports, and give
her that eminent rank in the confederacy,
which with the aid of necessary monied fa-
cilities, she would so speedily attain. It is
perfectly clear, that for many years, there
can arise no danger from the free introduc-
tion of capital intp Florida. What though,
one in ten of those who are enabled to bor-
row money freely, should use It Improvi-
dently I the large majority are still bene-
-fitted, andit devolves upon the Banks (and
7the Territd,-,Y, if it shall become liable for
them,) to see that they get good security.
In regard to this, Mr. Baltzill, even at thW
time, is understood to say, he has no doubts
as to the safety of the Terrltoty from the
operations of the Union Bank.
I now propose to examine into the pow-
ere and prNileges of the Trust Company,
at which a certain sect of politicians arm so
much alarmed. Among the powers grant-
ed to this company find the right t0 Insure

ng men will readily see that the advanta-
es growing out of their exercise would be&
n the side of the public. But-the leadirl
nd paramornt objection to the charter in.
he minds of these sagacious gentlemen, is
aid to be the right to ask for the territorial
guarantee, "to an unlimited amount and
withoutt slcurity.11 Now, on this subject,
hicre has been much misapprehension. To
ny mind, there is not a feature in any bank
charter inm the whole south, except perhaps,
,be clause in this charter which limits its
ssues to one dollar of circulations for one
dollar of'capital actually paid in, as careful-
y and rigidly guarded as the provision in
his charter in relation to the endorsement
)f the Territory upon its certificates, and in
reference to it, the company may confidently
invite investigation from the most fastid-
uus of its opponents. By the act of incor-
poration and amendments, the company is
required to lend 3-5ths of their capital," se-
evured upon unincumbered, real, and per-
sonal estate, lying and being in the Terri-
ory of Florida, of double the value in each
case, of the sum loaned." And before
any liability, as is hereinafter provided,
shall be incurred by this Territory, the val-
uation to be made shall be approved by
commissioners, appointed by the Governor
and Council, or the Governor in the recess,"
and said valued and mortgaged properly,
when received by the said company, to be
recorded in St. Johns county and the regis-
try thereof shall be held sufficient in law to
bind the property, and thereafter the same
shall not be assignable, but shall remain as
a security for the ultimate payment and
redemption of the principal and interest of
the liabilities of this Territory for said com-
pany." And again, "to enable the said
company to make loans and discotints be-
yond the amount of their capital, they may
issue .certificates of1 (XKl each, bearing not
more than six per cent inicrest, redeemable
within the limits of their charter, at such
times as the Governor and company may
agree on, and present the same to the Gov-
Ernor, whose duty it shall be to endorse
thereon, 'gf-araniteed by the Territo-y of
Florida,' and sign his name and title of of-
fice thereto, and return the same to the said
company, and the faith of the said Territo-
ry is bereby pledged as security for said
company, for the faithful payment of such
certificates according to the tenor and effect
of the same. But no greater amount of cer-
tificates shalt at any time be endorsed than
shallt b equal to the debts placed under
mortgage to the company at the time of
making.application, to be secured after the
mode and in the manner pointed out by the
sixth sectiofi of this act, and in case the
said company shall make defaults in pay-
ment of the principal or interest of such
certificates, it shall be the duty of the court
of appeals of -aid Territory, on being certi-
fied of the fact by the Governor, to issue an
appropriate process to any Marshal of said
Territory, commanding him.to take so much
of the inoney choses in action, or other ef-
fects, or property, of the said company, and
bring the same into court forthwith, as will
be sufficient to indemnify the government
from lo." by reason of such default: pro-
vided, also, when the guarantee is asked for
the Governor andCouncil shall have pow-
er to appoint three directors who may, or
may not be stockholders."
Can it be amin said with any show of
sincerity, that the Territory gets no secu-
rity for this endorsement ? Did any individ.
ual ever receive better security for a loan
of money than the Territory will receive
if the Trust Company should, in cxtcnding
its loans beyond its capital, ask for the Ter
ritorial endorsement? It is not becoming
in Mr. Baltzell, courting, as he is, the strifi
and turmoil of public life, to lake fright a
the "shadow of a shadv," which Locc
F(,coism" has thrown across his political
path, lest hc subject himself, during hi
career; (o the imputation of "' straining at
gnat arid swallowing a camel."' It will b<
scan that the company lends its capital
and should they be unable, on their owi
cr, dii; to raise as much money as the Wah.
or their dealers require ; they can pltrdgi
0teir own securities and oba!a:: ;he Terri
aerial endorsement. But ftir'-,'r, hr oba
jection is niade with as nn',.h n:jfu,'en
carnestne-ss as thoughh it was beliereu, thu
there is no limit to the Territorial endorse
ment! ls it to be supposed for one rooeni
thiat individuals are 10 lend their money;
upon nnsafe security? And if this wcr
supposabe, the valuation to be made shal
be app:roved by government commission
ent, &c. The Territory receives the fatal
of the original capital contributed by sleek
holdert,--he .ecurities for actual mensc
loaned--and no well wishecr to the Tecrtorl
ought to dcsir,, auy otlher limit to uch opt
ratiotts Ihan that created by the amount c
(;ooD PrinDt-c!ivi: acixrrry, on which loan
could be made. Thii, and the demand fo
money for profitable empo3 ment L4 ith
limit to loans all the world over; and qual
ified I-,.itical economists would not desire
rto s.e the us,,e of capilai within narrowed
jcircuinscribed limits. But again, It is smi
the mockholders and offleers of this ban
are foreigners. Who now connected wit
the Union Bank were not foreigners a fev
years since in the same sense? Were w
not all fureigiinrt but as yeiterdn3y ? Wh
not stiginmaize as foreigners the large PoT
tion of our population, from Virginia an
the Carolinna, to whose enterprise almm
entirely, Middle Floridu is indebted fo
what she is? The)y, too, were foreigner
but a few years snce. Buti the officers

fanaticism of party feeling, to that extend
which makes its votaries from their .zeal i

Entirely governed by the results of their
manoeuvres to deceive the people, they
then hold the doubtful promise of propriety
to the ear, but break it to the sense.
The avoidance of these extremes it is our
intention to arrive at. We set out with the
determination to be under the control of nc
party. We shall discuss abstract political
principles on their own merits, and shall
admit their applicability or not, as they may
bear relation to the well established ge-
neral formulae of government. Let it not
be understood by this that wo purpose being
on the fence. Far from it:-Raise any
question in which our public interests or
private rights may be involved, and our
voice will be decided, fearless, and as unbi-
assed as the endeavor to be so can make it.
So far from it, indeed, that should a candi-
date offer for any office in the gift of the
people, and his views and ideas and princi-
ples correspond with our own, we shall un-
flinchingly .uphold him. We shall not,
however, consider ourselves under his ban-
ner any longer than he may act consistent-
ly in every point with our own notions.-
We shall not, because we once supportted
Shim, conceive ourselves bound to continue
so to do, should he change his views; and
-further, in case he should adhere to the
same course we once were in favor of, but
which may no longer be proper when
brought, to bear relatively to a change of
general-policy-we shall be found opposed
to the man and a friend to the public good.
But the pith and marrow of our motto
lays in this-that no matter how pure in its
pristine beauty--no matter how patriotical-
ly it may have been conceived-no matter
f how beneficial in its intrinsic merits-
Sshould we find any political principle per-
Sverted from its usefulness, by the fanatic
S.zeal of its upholders, though in its abused
Character sustained by those whom we may
have supported, we shall be as warm in our
opposition to the extremes of such policy
as we may have been friendly to a middle
and moderate adaptation of it. And again,
on the other hand, should a party with
. whom we may have differed, advance any
policy which reason and expediencyshould
declare to be correct, we will lend a dispas-
sionate ear to its doctrines, and if convinced
of their merits, will not hesitate to do all in
our power to promulgate them. In medio
'The Tallahassce Star.
Our friend Col. Joseph Burlington Webb,
of the Star, has announced the receipt of
our first number with a praise as faint as its
typographical execution. He is a plain,
blunt fellow-speaks his own mind, and has
no idea of serving a friend by flattering
his vanity; or else we have no doubt he
would have spoken in unmerited praise of
our first sheet. He seems, however, con-
trary to his general habits, to have been
much excited, because we did not rant and
rave about the rights and liberties of the peo-
plej and urge them to put down locofocoi-m,
whose "tendency is to misrule and confu-
sion." One would have imagined that he
had never seen Apalachy-that he thought
us all here perfectly ignorant of our posi-
tion ; in fact that we were all benighted by
a kind of back woods lethargy, and that we
required to be "stired up with a long pole."
Why, he must have dipped his nether limb
(to use the astronomical phrase) into the
horizon of M. LeBleux,and emerged there-
from under the Dog Star influence of a
-" Tom and Jerry," when he accused us
indirectly Of having no spark of patriotism,
by pursuing a sap sago policy; just as if be
did not know we never wasted our "sweet-
ness on the desert air," and that we detest all
acts of supererogation. The people are all,
right here; they know their interests; we
knew that they did, and it would have
been bombastic to hang out"our banners on
the outward wall," when the enemy had
capitulated. As for our motto, it is a good
one-it can take care of itself. We can
only tell the Star he has misunderstood us;
and.if he ever finds us in dubiis we shall
look up to him with steadfast gaze to show
us the light of his countenance to guide us
out of danger.
There is no subject in the defence of
which the mam of men would sooner take
up arms than the much vaunted liberty of
the press; and yet there is no one on which
there isj inore lamentable want of gener-
os feeling and enlightened liberty. Every
patron of ai newspaper seems to have formed
an ide1 view of the duties of its Editor,
and among them that he is to insert no par-
agraph, seateance or Idea which doesn't
embody a epres h own &orie opia-
ion, sal exchade every iem of intelligence,
VW^- vpe" Ot I' Ak a :W.
e coinside with his own. In our own short
d professional career we have been amused
t thongs somewhat annoyed, at the arbitrar;
n dicta and conflicting advice of some of ou
t kind friends-one complains that we havy
- written nothing in favor of Col. Downing
v and the great principles of sound govern
e meant, while another contends that the corn
g munications we have admitted to our col
- umns in his support identify us as his par
f tizan. The unreasonableness of every mai
f expecting our paper or our opinions tc
s harmonize, on all occasions, with his owi
e notions, we shall not attempt to illustrate
r the utter impossibility of doing so, whatever
e might be our wish, is sufficient to banist
r the expectation from every rational mind.
Regarding an attempt to please, at all
Times, all our supporters as impracticable,
we have as little hope that we can at all
r times please ourselves; and we are anxious
I to prevent or remove an impression that,
Sin publishing.contributions, or in selecting
Sthe matter which is to be placed before our
Readers, we are guided by the desire to ad-
vance the popularity of a favorite dogma
or insure the triumph of peculiar principles
We beg leave most distinctly to disclaim
Such an imputation. While our own articles
will always be Written under certain fixed
principles, we trust we shall often insert
contributions highly favorable to the incul-
cation of right feelings and views in regard
to morals and literature, excluding sketches
of wit or humor, only when the religious
or moral tendency is less obvious. So we
shall always be glad to admit political essays
written with temper and ability, though op-
posed to our political views. Our wish is
to exhibit a faithful reflection of the spirit
of our community in its commercial, politi-
cal and social aspects; and in so doing we
expect often to record facts, which, per-
haps, we and many of our readers could
wish otherwise, but which to others of dif-
ferent views may be subjects of high grat-
ification. We regard it as the duty of an
Editor to endeavor, as far as in his power,
to afford a faithful picture of the diversities
and contradictions of opinions of disputed
facts around him, and we know that this
cannot be done if his journal convey but the
sentiments, and the conclusions of the single
individual who conducts it.
But while we claim freedom of the press
for ourselves, and extend it fully to our sup-
porters, we shall carefully exclude every-
thing approaching towards licentiousnessof
the press. The march of this vice of late
years would seem to indicate that mankind
had discovered a much more ready and ef-
fectual method of rewarding their own ac-
quirements with the admiring gaze of the
multitude, than by awaiting the tedious and
uncertain process of decorum and propriety.
In our great northern commercial me-
tropolis, we have seen the licentiousness of
the press carried to so great an extreme,
both in politics and morals, as not only to
impair its reputation for every thing but ta-
lent, but, alas, to cause a general mistrust
and apprehension throughout its wide
spread community. The utmost purity of
private character, or the greatest extent of
public, usefulness, afford no security from
the attacks of the reckless and unprincipled
panders to the foul passions of the worth-
less in that vast city. Every thing which is
commonly held sacred is seized with a ruth-
less hand: our political institutions are ridi-
culed: the characters of the most virtuous
citizens are blasted, and no man can feel se-
cure even for a day from an exposure to
the obloquy and contempt of his fellow-citi-
zens. We find a taste for these libellous
productions of a licentious press growing in
our Southern cities; and consequently that
newspapers like Berwert's Herald are
bought and admired for their flippancy, hu-
mor and talent, in utter disregard of their
gross immorality. We have marked with
equal detestation and disgust, this growing
contempt of just restraint in the press of
our larger cities; and though we know the
force of the adage that" if you wrestle with
a sweep you must expect to be blackened
with soot," we shall on no occasion forego
the duty of holding the vice up to repre-
hension whenever it presents itself.
We have thus thrown out a few desultory
hints on the freedom and licentiousness of
the press, which we shall continue on future
occasions. If they shall in any way con-
duce to the adoption of more liberal views
in the would-be supporters of an indepen-
dent and correct press, we shall felicitate
ourselves in having contributed to the ap-
proach to a true source of mental improve-
ment. A press can only be truly useful to
the public when conducted with indepen-
dence, integrity, and strict regard to moral
propriety; and if these considerations be
lost sight of, it must speedily and fearfully
become a source of evil.

Downing's majority, 176
We have triumpbhed! The voters 6f
Franklin county have triumphed! Not-
withstanding the unprecedented exertions
mniade in behalf of'Mr. Baltzell-notwith-
standihg the Untirinrg zeal of his partizans,
and-the indolence of his opponents-not-
withstanding the misrepresentations and
calumnies that:have been, used to secure his
election, he-hhaien -defeated and a majo-
rity of nrrr-THn free and independent
electors of 4italchicola have proclaimed
Charles Downing the man of their choice.
The Constitution, too, that" thing of shreds
and patches;" has been" rejected by our citi-
zens, and the authors of this anti-commer-
cial, this anti-republican document have
been severely and justly rebuked. We re-
jice at the success of our favorite candid-
ate, we rejoice at the rejection of the" Con-
stitution,;" lIut we rejoice still mQre because
this success and this rejection afford such
tangible evidence of the overthrow of that
party which has ever been opposed to com-
mercial principles, commercial men, and
commercial measures and which isopposed-
to that wise policy which protects alike the
mereant and the mechanic, the -poor man
and the rich. The boasted influences
of the leaders of that party has been
fairly tested, and the result has, we trIst,
taught them that at least in Apalachicola
they have overrated their strength, and mis-
understood their position. Let us indulge
the hope that they will return to their ori-
ginal obscurity; but should they again come
forward as the champions of radicalism-as
the advocates of doctrines destructive to
commercial prosperity and opposed to the
best interests of the country, we predict for
them a still more ignoble defeat-a yet
stronger expression of public opinion. Let
them be warned in time-we will say no-
thing of principle, but Wce may speak to
them of prudence.
To be misunderstood has beer the mis
fortune ofalt men both greatand small, from
time imm etfoiial-it appears that we, in
the adoption of our motto, have also been
misunderstood. We shall endeavor, there-
fore, to define our position so that "this
hand-writing oh the wall" may be interpre-
ted with reference to the meaning and con-
&trussion which we give to it, and according
toi. oWeaa thereof we are willing to be
judged. -The literal translation (which to
' Ur Latin friends may be uselew, we never-
Sheless givea) isthat in.the middle course
there is the greatest safety. It has been
generally admitted that extremes in any

.xtracted from the TOMATO PLANT, with other vegetable substase-m J :
lave been found to modify and diffuse its effects, are believed to be the best Ai8* *#iW

They are an antidote to Contagious and Epidemic diseases ; preventthe formation of
Bilious and Liver affections, Fever and Ague, &c., in those who resile in hot climatms
and low and marshy countries, and are the best Catharti that can be used for those lcal f -
ities. Seamen will find them an infallible remedy for the Sotmvi ; and Travell4rs, ll
best medicine they can use to counteract the dangers of exposure in unhealj elCU
mates. For ordinary FAMIL Y PH YSIC, they are universally approved, as the bot
ever offered. .
As a DIETETIC or DINNER Pill, one taken ,half an bour after dinne, ,04
sufficiently stimulate the digestive powers of the stomach to a healthy and invigorated
action, and they are found extremely serviceable for those who indulge in oeg dinners,
or late suppers, or immoderately in desserts or fruit.
The peculiar virtues of the Tomato Plant, have forit long time attracted the atten-
tion of the Medical profession and the Public; and a lively interest-has recently been
directed to the future development of its active powers, and its Anlibiliows and ,Aer-
ative qualities;-which the Proprietor is now happy in being a&l tgratify--and pre-
sents hiz Pills to the Public, with the full confidence of their beig 4Ae woo safe, and
valhble remedy ever discovered ;--adapted to all case, where Nature is disturbed,
and when any of the functions do not perform their NATURAL OR HEALTHY ACT-roI.
Numerous certificates of cures, from those who have taken them, and the to*imo.
of several Physicians, who have prescribed them, all concur to corroborate this opin-
ion.-The rapidly increasing demand for, and the uhiyversil approbation bestowed upon
them, is an additional evidence of their merits and usefulness.
In presenting this article to the public, the proprietor was influenced by the bop&
that a medicine prepared with much care7 and strict regard to the C i
and Therapeutic properties of its several ingredient should take the place o" the
thousand and one irr-esponsible nostrums of the day, with which the country is
-and from the favor already bestowetd upon it by physoans and others, be
justified in expecting this result. ,

HAnTrOD, July 12,1838,
This may certify, that I have been for the last 18 months in a very feeble state of health
with loss ofapletitic, pepiLation of the heart, almost constant sickness of the stomach, vomttig,
and head-ache; and to all Utis was added frequent and severe attacks of J1Ae x "tii. I had
comsulied several physicians, and taken their remedies, (and among other things, frequently ;
large qu:.ntics ofcadom4,) but without much relieC I had tried numerous other popular reme-
dies which are recommended for such complaints, (as Brandreth's rills, &c.) and various
things which my friends advised, but still without any relief. A friend of mine recommtended
Dr. Phelps' Tomato Pills, which I tried, and to the astonishment of myself and friends, produc-
ed almost immediate relief, and one box has completely relieved me of all those complaints, and
I am now able to uttered to my daily -ibor and business. During the time I was taking the
Pills, I voided large quantities ofwormv, from which I have suffered most of the time foryears,
but have not been tro-ibled with them since. My daughter, who has been for a long time af-
flicted with a violent cough, pain in the side, palpitation of the beaen, with general debi"ly,
lossofappetile and strength, &c. has also bsen very much beefitted by the use of one box of tie
Pills. They are the only medicine which has given her any relief, although she has take thm
prescriptions of screral physicians, and various other medicines, during the last six months.

which they are recommended, and which have occurred in my practice, a=8 1 mast say, that I
am bo:'er plesfd wilh them than with any medicine I hare ever Used. I have given fio m as
a Cal.arlic, in the Bio.i s affectioas which usually prevail at this season of the ysif, and sbo
a.s an dalternatire in Liver and othcr G(avtdtlar obstructi, ; nd ahink uk hu4p-e more in
bringing about regular and heahhy secrtioxs, than any medicine with w bh i d: equaatnted.
I have long believed ibe Tomato to possess Deobstruent and Anii-Bilious aroveie as a n am-
dimcni-and in its use as a medicine that belief has been frilly c-t blishad "I fEnd the= topos-.

OF THE TALLAHASSEM STAR.
C USTOM has established the practice of
rendering a programme of principles, pro-
fessios and terms, on the part of thse who
would esray to cater for the public appetite in
(he way of news, and who would seem ,-he gui-
dance of public opinion through the medium
of the press, as preliminary to their debut before
such public. Nor should such a course be
deemed arrogant or obtrusive, but On the con-
trary, proper and apposite, and in every sent
due to the public wish and discretion.
The rapid adv.-ncemeni of the preemat age, in
all thsa b-longs to political economy, the refine-
ment of Iheraturr, and the science of morals,
whilst it furnishes a powerful and pleasing stim-
ulant to mental enterprise, al the same time ad-
monishes both writer and reader, of the high
importance of being well prpared alike to im- 4
pari and receive, these great principles, which
sustain the free institution of our country, and
to tread lightly upon the sacred mounds oai.er-
saure, lest the rebuking spirit of %owe dep>r.ed
scholar, should blast our vaulting ambition,"
and put to shame our ignorance.

At a meeting of the Board held this day, it
That this Company having a portion of their
stock -surrendered, to them in pursuance of an
amendment to their charter passed in February,
1838, are prepared to receive applications for
their stock at par, on the pledge of bonds and
mortgages upon approved, unincumbered, real
and personal estate,, held in severalty; in Florida
to the amount of ($1,000,000) one Million Dol-
lars, at their office at Apalachicola. A loan for
as long a period as the mortgages have to run
will be made upon the stock tO the amount of
three-fifths its par value,--so soon as arrange-
ments can be made, and it be ascertained what
amount is wanted. One half the amount of one
million dollars, will be apportioned to Middle,
and one half to West Florida, and no one indi-
vidual will be allowed to subscribe more than
fifteen thousand dollars of stock. Proposals must
be accompanied by a certificate of appraisal from
duly appointed commissioners, and also by evi-
dence of title, and all applications must be made
prior to the 1st day of June next. The property
must be unincumbered and appraised to be worth
double the amount of the mortgage. Address

The So. Life Ins. & Trust Co. commenced
its operations in November, 1835, and has been
gradually extending them since, as the wants of
the community required, and the situation of the
Territory would justify. It has been the policy
of the Directors, so to distribute their loans and
business as to aid both the agricultural and com-
mercial interests, and this policy will continue
to govern them in their future business. Facil-
ities for obtaining capital at the same time that
they create healthful competition among mer-
chants and factors, thus enabling planters always
to realize at home a fair price for their products,
afford the best guarantee for a speedy increase of
active population, and these facilities, it will be
the object of the Company to afford. How far
the Directors have succeeded in attaining these
objects they leave the public to judge. An office
"of this Inslitution will be soon established at
Tallahassee, where stock holders in middle
-Florida could receive their dividends and trans-
act their business. The Institution bas thus far-
by pursuing the policy before described been en-
abled to divide, among the share holders ten per
cent per annum or five per cent semi-annnally
and they hope by a steady adherence to such
business, and requiring such securities, as they
deem perfectly safe, to divide this amount re-

i .. PROPOSALS
FOR REVIVISOTHB."'SOUTrHEIRN REVIEW."-
MW -kSfcriber, in proposing tlie re-estab-
JL Hshment of the 8outliern Review, deems
-it unnecessary to refer tothe history-of lhaL Work,
which is already in the possession of the public,
or to dwell -6n the high esti-ation in'which it
was held both at home and abroad, during the
period. of its continuance.;, Suffice it to say, .that
its career, though brief, was," as all admit, bril-
liant-creditable to, the South-and to the whole
American Union. Its failure-the subject of
mive~rsal' regget, was.owi ng, it is well known,
not to A Lfitution 6T talent and public spirit,
but arose'p, from its limited circulation, which
was by-n adequate to sustain a work of
such inagajnude, and "2nd, from the political dif-
,ferences which agitated the country about the
itime of its dis.continuance, dividing the friends
-of Southerm Literature into two great parties,
and preventing that harmony of.opinion and co-
operation in'the discussion of leading questions
which is desirable in a work professedly devoted
to th,,p atus0 ob the South and the whole South.
it is prWer to consider, first, the utility of
Reviews, regarded as organs of the iterary
spirit and.opinions, of the age, and secondly,
the importance and neceisityiof establishing
such-a work at the South, at the .present time.
Onr the first point, it is scarcely necessary to say
much, in the present advanced stage of periodi-
cal LOeratare. Ably conducted Reviews are the
0fisp go6f 4"igh state of ciVilizatiot and are
the-best evidenee'inow-a-days'thai 'can be fur-
nished of intellectual advancement and the prev-
leqneeof4-a Ture. and ,levatLed philosophy. The
last half century -has produced few authors of
eminence either inwGreat Britain or in Ame-
rica, iiwcomparison with ihe half century that
preceded it, and ther-easf prob-tbly is,-not that
there'has.i Be a*-want of-geniuntalent and schol-
arship Ain this confessedly intellectual age, but.
simpty-be e .distinguished scholars have'found
a readier and a- better organ through'which to
act dire o'bithe public mind in Reviews, than
through a m ediu .i-of book*--he o-ld more
tedious and-more expensive method If, there-
fore, it bestked, what evidence is or can be fur-
nishked-9iheisuperior intelligence and progress
of the present century,-a progress of .wnicn we
are so aim to boast,-the reply; is, that it is to be
found in the high character of the Q.uarterly
Rdevtwf-abroad-and athome. Ifit be affirmed,
that we have no'native titerature in this country,
andFIltQrWeaoi6 materials to furnish the *round
work for Reviews,, the-answer is, that our Re-
view8t, eqstitute our native literature, and that if
learning and scholarship are sought for, they are
to be found in our Reniews, which- therefore
-shwd be warmly and firmly supported, as an
evideice,'and a. fai one, of our literary preten-
sionsand -p" national character. Besides, no
..us, "it *ay be safely affirmed, has con-
tributed so much to. el-o talent, to awaken lit-
eruy a nipous, and to produce the highest order
of fine an powtful writing, as" the establish-
.ment'of Review, and many individuals have

subsequenitry known far and wide to fame, in

IN commencing a new volume, the publisher
would take occasion to observe, that not only
will the same exertions be continued, which have

will be enhanced by every means which unceas-
ing endeavor, enlarged facilities, and liberal ex-
penditure can command.
The subjoined is a brief plan of the work :-
ITS ORIGINAL P.PERns will be so varied as to
form a combination of the useful with the enter-
taining and agreeable. These will embrace the
departments of USEFUL SCIENCE, ESS3YS, TALES,
and POETR- which may deserve the name.
It is the publishers design to make the Visiter
agreeable to the old and the young-to the sedate

amusing--and to pursue the tenor of his way
with the entertainment of good feelings towards
TERMs.-The Visiter is published every other
