A i in or Tetra to event has for Many months oct a it have asked for nothing we ecu is in Corma Nen among us which has spread a deeper gloom Over our Community. The deceased was highly respected and esteemed by All w to knew him. Mention of the spirit i w hich the Constitution was adopted. On the contrary we have Only ached for the adoption of 1hat policy which is. Asked to i a quota j of a a a Fine understanding and Correct principles.

A the editor has i her for a enl we Chat 0.ce a,n6�?~l fur him the co1�?T Dence and kindly regard of ail Ages. He was those who made it. Gotten the history of the times or Lias not been Rhar fable enough to inform himself of the opinion of other before condemning them. Hie construction of roads and other improvement by the Aid of private capital alone is no new ideas it is at least As old As our Constitution and was much discussed and final adopted As the policy of this state. We have Only asked for the adoption of Laws authorizing and encouraging the prosecution of this policy. It is no doubt a source of much discomfort to the Register that our Constitution prohibits the state from taking Stock in internal improvements and from entering into that a Liberal system for the development of our a a resources which would doubtless so a a develop them in a Short time As that we should be Able to so very Clear in that we had no a a resources left. This part of the matter we cannot help and ii the editor w ill Pardon us. We will add As our Humble opinion that he will never be Able to help it himself. The time has pasted for the propagation of such ideas the people of the Prev ent Day Are wisely Bent on profiting by the experience of the a at they cannot be made to close their eyes and yield consent to a system which must Leal to partial legislation while if would add largely to the general Burden. For instance the people of the state generally have no objection to the construction of the great do Viuque Ami Keokuk rail Road by private capital and the Aid of government donations but if it should to proposed to involve the state in the Enterprise to the tune of millions and the a a resources of the state to pay for the same should be sought in the pockets of the pople a very serious objection we opine would to found to Manifest itself in Many Quarter a. Although it in not our vocation now a Days to keep ourselves posted in the matter of party feeling still we Are much mistaken in our Imper Mon if there is not a very Large majority of the party which the Register aspires to Lead who Are decidedly opposed to the Loose and reckless systems which have brought a bad name upon our neighbouring state Illinois overwhelmed it with a Public debt exhausted All her made her a beggar at foreign boards of Exchange and a Vagabond a our own and left her people borne Down to the Earth and kept there beneath a Mountain Load of with this Enji Prience and these results before them the people of this state will not be like the fall into similar errors. They will rather be Content with such improvements the w ants a Iso a gentleman of Many accomplishment pleasing address and elegant person. To Bis immediate associates he w As greatly endeared i y his Many Noble qualities and by them his death w ill be mourned As 4hat of a brother. An affecting proof of this attachment and of the general sorrow was manifested by the presence of hundreds who had congregated upon the Banks of the River on sunday evening to receive his body. The silence which marked the presence of so Many persons and the tears which Rose unbidden to Many an Eye were touching eulogies upon the v Virtues of the deceased and expressive of the estimation in which he was universally held. The funeral took place yesterday from the congregational Church. Appropriate service was performed by revs. Messes. Salter Dennis Shinn and Johnson. Twelve pall bearers were selected from among the immediate friends of the deceased and a Large concourse of citizens followed his body to its final resting place. The deceased was a native of Rost on where lie has a brother residing and was about 24 years of age at the time of his death. We believe it is not known whether he has other relatives or not. The last four or five years of his life have been spent in the West principally in Niles Michigan lie came to this City in april last and started on his recent and latal trip with the View of making arrangements for a Wierma nent settlement among us. Our opportunities of Intercourse with the de ceased were frequent we knew him Well and for the Telegraph. To the Leuis Lati re. The press of the state almost with one Accord have advised you to adopt the code without debate and w without argument. Like a child taking a dose of Castor Oil you Are told to shut your eyes and open your Mouth and Swallow it. Little by Little knowing and caring As Little about it As possible. You have been informed in in this likeable language that like the old Many a w Ile w to knew nothing about War you were presumed to be equally ignorant of Law and that the sagacious Legal gentlemen who have presented you with the document for your approval Are infinitely More practical More Learned and know More of the wants of your constituent than All of you put together. If such is your estimate of the duties of a leg Dator if such is your opinion of the obligations and responsibilities of your official oaths both to yourselves the people and the state you will of course adopt this very easy Way of drawing your per diem and getting through the session some How. Whether you do or not a a Ense of Public duty impels me to address to you these few suggestions and allow me Here to say that knowing nothing whatever of Law Ray self my remarks shall be directed to the subdivision of the labor devolving upon county officers and their practical results to the a eople in Point of Economy a position in which experience enables me to feel perfectly at Home. In this respect the code is like unto nothing named by Adam in the Garden of Eden or that came out of the Ark with Noah. There it lies at your feet a shapeless mass the concentrated Legal knowledge of the present age. The whole state has been ransacked in its production and there it lies boiled Down until of unimaginable and incalculable strength. You look at it with ill defined dread. The press the presumed Organ of your constituents have informed you beforehand that you must Swallow it Down whole gulp the Pill. Anaconda like Ami As you gaze upon it preparatory to the swallowing process it does in truth have a very Tonch Ine if you dare look about it. An old adage says that a a familiarity Breeds while deprecating this with All Iny heart i roust a till Hope that familiarity will yet induce you finally to venture to take the monster by the Tail and see what he is made of. Within the past ten Jears at least three this will lie the fourth modifications of county offices and of the Revenue Laws have been made by your body. Each time that these alterations have been made the it eople have been tantalized j with profound calculations of the great Economy effected thereby and each time truth compels me to say has bad been made worse. Nearly every county in the state is More or left in debt and while wealth and population have increased with unexampled rapidity our taxes and our debts have kept Pace with both. Four years a nobler spirit or More admirable Man we have never known. In the discharge of the painful �8�� he a memorable Possum whig legislature j duty thus suddenly devolved a Jami us. We have j passe in Revenue Law Felt a melancholy pleasure in bearing this hum i ble tribute to his memory. Peace to his ashes new years of k Alliek. And created some of the present county offices. Two sessions of your body have been held since that time and As each was import Ned to change the extravagant and wasteful county expenditures the Carrier of the Telegraph will wait upon under that Law the reply has always been to a a wait until the code was completed and ail your political and financial grievances shall be of Trade w ill absolutely require w hich will be As certainly constructed As that the necessity or Tow a graph. Will exist for there is always capital enough a or allow me a Lew words in reply in any Community to construct such works As it it a a county officer a and 1 will then cease to a aay be necessary to its convenience and the j trouble you upon that subject of new count wants of its Trade. Improvement other than j organization. I would not do so now were it these ought not to be constructed at ally still if ltd a the somewhat ungenerous imputation they must be made in order to fill the measure quot at 1 have a a drawn upon my imagination for my of a wild imagination or to Gam a Point in the or in other words that my figures were game of politics let not the extra Aga Oceon such false. Expenditures 1m thrown upon the shoulders of i i a Hail take no other notice of my friends at to people tempts at criticisms and sarcasm than merely we do not accuse the a go or of urging this it it it remind him of what he doubtless Well knows particular so Stem indeed we have not made it hut must have forgotten when he wrote Misarti our business to it Erue it with the View of Stu he. That they Are generally regarded among dying its doctrines least of allot assailing them its Patron Bright and Early new years morning for the double purpose of tendering them the compliments of the season and of receiving redressed that will be the great Panacea of the the Reward Ever due to the faithful. Dave is a age in it will be combined the experience of Devil of a Fri a it is Tiuis still he professes the past with the magnificent and useful disco the highest degree of respect for the patrons of eries of modern the Telegraph whom we know he has served at Well the code has come and As Many of its All hours and through All kind of w Eather and extravagant features have been looked upon by the least we can do for Hlin on this occasion is you with distrust and dread the old cry has to commend him to the just appreciation of All again been raised of a try it try it it Cai t who irom a sense of Justice alone Are ready to a give the Deril his ltd a a yet we have occasionally noticed that it was Warmin in favor of an alteration of the Constitution with a View to the incorporation of a state Hank system acid the adoption of Kindred measure. Looking to the construction of Public works the a Dev elopement of our 4lc. Whether the Illinois system of involving the state would follow As a natural result and become part and parcel of the policy aimed at by i lie i Zister we shall leave to the decision of the Reader. An unworthy attempt is Mude on the part of Tbs Lii Juter to identify our it a or with what it is pleased to term i oof a coi a. It is True that in politics our votes and sentiments have rendered us liable to this allegations but it is not True nor is it just that such an imputation can be brought against our Humble column. A Bave not a a exhorted our Loc Ioco friends a As a weft in any thing we have said. What we have sail was addressed to the legislature generally. It was our right and duty As Independent journalist to do so. Our position of neutrality does but prohibit us from urging or discussing any Nutter relative to the Public interest. The it Gutirr know full Well that we have not said aught in our Page or with the View of strengthening one party or of injuring the other. Use Are strictly Neutral a Between the two parties taking no Art whatever in the i Cut a Ion of their Peculiar Tenet but at the same time we claim to be Independent of both. Guided by this opinion of our right we have taken frequent occasion j to exec a the privilege thus reserved but at no Kiaie Toi the purpose of wandering to party in any form or with the intention of committing any impropriety whatever. If any one has hitherto misunderstood the w Ord a a Neutral a As i connected with our to Iliou. We will give him j thinking men As the weakest of arguments. In my former communication i Statini the fees of the District clerk. 11<m 00 3 a sixty Sunmi Veurn. 180 00 treasurer and ,.1300 00 with my estimate of the fees of the other a county officers he finds no fault but he endeavours to convey the impression that the first and lat of the above amounts Are too Large by one Hall. Now let us see who is treating this subject most fairly. I estimated the tees of the clerk of the District court at $1100. I am now prepared to show by the declarations of the clerk himself that they w ill amount the present year to $1200. I surely did not a draw a it on my imagination in this in Taj be. As to the amount paid the county commissioner. I will Only say that or. Robinson who j was six years commissioner and who is cer make matters worse than they Are and see these j figures How Many dollars in the shape of taxes will he saved every year under me gentlemen had can be till be made worse if this instrument be taken As it is. County offi-1 cars will be overloaded some with Unne Ces Ary work others with unheard of Power and authority. The figures presented to you Are All false. There will be no saving but a greater expenditure. The objections to it May be thus briefly j summed up taking it As far As you have gone and saying nothing about the unsafe and foolish Powers Given to counties to speculate in every visionary scheme which you have most wisely stricken out 1. It gives to one county officer unheard of authority and Power not Only Over his brother officers but Over the people and elects him for i an unprecedented length of time. 2. It places All the other officers entirely under the control of this officer and renders everybody and every thing subservient to his Beck and nod. J. It deprives two thirds of the Jwo ple of their rightful representation and voice in admin ii 4. By a system of speculation by the county upon the fees of the officers it renders the county More than liable to the Ordinary results of speculation by private individuals to lose More than it will gain. 5. By this system it threaten to make every county office a direct Burden upon the county Treasury to be supported Ordy by increased taxation of the people. To. By this system based upon the false estimate of population instead of w Oik the county officers will be crowded with More work than they can possibly it erf Orni and the Ople will to inv As competent to judge As any one state the average amount per annul at $180. I placed hampered at every step in the transaction of Public business. 7. That the figures Given to you As the pro-1 la quot a we a s Gazette Ever the Signa ext edit up saving to each county and to virtually admit that they amounted j Tach a Paye Star Vold of any foundation in the fees of recorder and treasurer at so a Ftp. Did not a a county it of fico re in a communication in the Ture of to $2<s per annul rut i think the truth to be that they amount to More than either of those sums. My impression is that the fees for re coding the per cent allowed the treasurer upon collections and the fees arising from the ule of lands for taxes amount to at least $1500. Will a a county officer Summit his books to an examination in order to test Fhi question a \ county officer triumphantly aka a it one officer can supplant to Bra a in administering county matters Why cannot it he done in Legislatures. Why should not the North of Flint and South too have a voice in county business As i would not charge that the truth and that there cannot possibly be any saving effected under it hut on the contrary an increased expenditure. These objections Are potent enough and numerous enough in All conscience. Nor can they Eaily be gainsaid for they Are fact founded upon know ledge acquired in the school of exp it Eiienne. T. The Pia irm a one of a a i Depe amp Dent As explant j Well As the town a try of our course. Last present and for the fun design Here is to excite a local prejudice against tar.

It not ouly carried away a great Many of our own citizens but it induced thousands in the k Stern states to go to California who had previously Felt disposed to emigrate to Wisconsin. In til is Way the discovery of the Gold mines of California has operated against the growth of the Western states. But this Drui i Only temporary. The Gold fever i Over.

Garland of St. Louis which Lias jut been published next morning the Day on which he died or. Parish received an Early and an urgent message to x in it him. Several persons were in the room but soon left it except his servant John who was much affected at the a ight of i dying master. The doctor remarked to him a i have seen your master very Low let a fore and he revived and perhaps he will again a John knows tatter than that sir he then looked at the doctor with great intensity and said in an Earnest and distinct manner i confirm every disposition in my will especially that respecting Iny slaves whom i have Man omitted and for whom i have made prov Ision i run rejoiced to hear such a declaration from you sir replied the doctor and soon alter proposed to leave for a Short time to attend to another patient. A you Nuit not it it was the reply you cannot you shall not leave me. John take care that the doctor a of not leave the room John soon locked the a Loor and reported 4 a taster i have locked the door a id got the key in my pocket the xxx Ter can t go now he seemed excited and said. If you do. You need not return the doctor appealed to him As to the propriety of such an order inasmuch a he was onh desirous of discharging i duty to his other patient his manner instantly changed and he said i retract that expression. Some time after turning an expressive look he a Aid again �?~1 retract that expression the doctor now said that he understood the subject of his communication and presumed the an ill would exp Kiin itself fully. He replied in his Peculiar Way no our Long to understand it i know you Don t. Our Laws Are extremely particular on the a a beet of a Lavese a a ii 1 May Man unit them but Provit Ion for their subsequent support requires that a declaration be made in the presence of a White witness and it i requisite tii t the witness after hearing the declaration should continue with the party and never lose sight of him until lie in gone or dead. You Are a go j witness for John. You see the propriety and importance of remaining with me your patients Mno to make allowance for your situation. John told me this morning a it Ter you Are dying the doctor spoke with entire Candor Ami replied that it was rather a matter of Surprise that he had lasted �0 Long. He now made his preparations to die. A a directed John to bring him his father s breast Button he then directed him to place it in the bosom of his shirt. It was an old fashioned Large sized Gold stud. John placed it in the Button Hole of the shirt bosom but to 1�x it completely required a Hole 011 the opposite Side. Get a knife sail he. 4 anti Cut one a Napkin was called for and placed by John Over his breast. For a Short time he Lay perfectly quiet with his eyes closed. He suddenly roused up and exclaimed a remorse remorse it was thrice repeated the last time at the top of his voice with great agitation. He Rietl out a let me see the word get a dictionary let me seethe word a there is none in the room w rite it Down then let me see the word the Doetz it a picked up Tine of his Earl. 4 Randolph of Roanoke �?4shall i write on this car yes. Nothing More proper the word kit mob a was then written in Pencil. He took the can in a hurried manner and fastened his eyes on it with great intensity. Write it on the kick lie exclaimed. It was done and handed him again. He was extremely agitated 4 remorse you have no i idea what it in you can form no idea of it whatever it has contributed to bring me to my present situation but 1 have looked to the lord a a a us Christ and Hope that 1 have obtained j Anion. Now let John take your Pencil Ai d Drav. A line under the word which was accordingly done. A what am 1 to a to with the card inquired the doctor. 4 it in your pocket take care of it when 1 am dead look at it the do a tor now introduced the subject of calling in some additional witnesses to his declarations and suggested sending Down stairs for Edmond Badger. He re plier a 41 have already communicated that to him the doctor then said 4 with your concurrence sir. I will Send for two Young physicians who shall remain Ana never lose sight of you until you Are dead to whom you can make your declarations my son i r. Isaac Parish and my Young Friend and late Pupil. Or. Francis v est a brother of capt. West he quickly asked 4 capt. West of the packet v is sir the same 4 Send for him he is the Many ill have him before the door was unlocked he pointed towards a Bureau and requested the a doctor to take from it a remuneration for his services. To this the doctor promptly replied that he would feel As though he were acting i delicately to comply. He then waived the subject by saving. A in King Puiul it 13 always customary. The witnesses were now sent fur. And it Oon arrived. The dying Man was propped up in bed. With pillows Nearl erect. Being extremely sensitive to cold he had a Blanket Over his arid Shou Klers Arul he directed John to place his hat on Over the Blanket which aided in keeping it Cly it be to his head. Vav Ith a countenance full of Sorovy. John stood close by the Side of his lying master. The four witnesses Edmond Badger Francis West la Mac Parish anti Joseph Parish were placed in a semicircle in full View lie rallied All the expiring energies of mind tags by to this last Effort. A his whole soul says or. Paris a seemed concent a ted in the act. I eyes of fax he i feeling and intelligence. Pointing to us with his Long Index linger he addressed us. �?~1 confirm ail the directions of my will respecting my slaves and direct them to be enforced particularly in respect to a proviso a ii for their support and then raising his Arm As High As he could he brought it Down with his open hand on the in Culver of his favorite Ohn and added these words 4 especially for this Man he then Sketl each of the witnesses whether they understood Hun. Or. Joseph Parish explain a to them what or. Randolph had said in regard to the Laws of \ in Rynta on Suo Jafet of manumission and then appealed to the dying Man to know w Hether he had stated it correctly. A yes said he and gracefully waiving his hand As a Token of Dis Mission lie added the Young gentlemen w Iii remain with the scene was now soon changed. Having to disposed of that subject most deeply impressed on i heart his keen penetrating Eye lost its expression his powerful mind gave Way and his fading imagination began to wander amid scenes and with friends that he had left Tahim in two hours the spirit tax it kits flight and ail that was mortal of John Randolph of Roanoke was hushed in death. At a Quarter Tambre twelve of clock on the Ith Day of june 183d, aged sixty years he i breathed his lat in a chamber of the City hotel no. 11 North third a to it. Philadelphia. Party . The most superficial observer must five remarked that throughout the Southern state part lines Are Beer it i in fainter every Day a it Al the time does not seem fur Distant when they will he. At least for a season entirely a illiterate to. There is no difficulty in tracing this political fusion to its legitimate causes. Intrina Icay the divisions and Whilt h some year no it it utterly insole Al whigs from democrats interposing Between them insurmountable or Ricks of constitutional a doctrine Aryl construction have gradually worn away until both parties almost occupy a common platform. The question of a Nat ill Bank perhaps the most potent of All the issues Between the two parties is confessedly obsolete. It has ceased even to be presented in the customary Batch cd resolutions which the democrats prepare for their avowed political assemblage. The internal improvement a test Ion i in i longer confined to part a since the West Arul in Many parts of the North the people of All shades of political opinion maintain the right and a Lifty of the general gov Cement to Foster scheme of Manifest Public Utility. Neither id a rib ution a of the proceeds of the Public land a part in be. Lor ii has been tacitly aban horned. A what then separate whig from 1 to Erat ? Little More than the Tariff question. Which i every tay log ing its prominence. And which even Georgia and one a or two a the a state of the South a a do develop j More fully their manufacturing resources. Will number its partisans among the most ardent Aryl uncompromising democrats i just As it does in Pennsylvania. Party spirit therefore from inherent and Ine v a table causes is dying out Ini fit South j and except a it a contest Between the pos a Povy a stors of Powers and the claimant of i Ower Tat Ween the a wins quot and the a a out \ it can hardly to said to be based on Well defined permanent and leading in due. If however the decay of political an to tag Omsk has been in some measure brought taut by the absence of Salien pm but j difference Between the two parties the process of fusion has been vat a Accel Era i ted by the recent growth of an due fur i transcending in importance and consequences All Mere struggles for place and preferment All controversies touching the property and expediency of any Purt Cular j measure. Quot e refer of course to the que Tion of the i Nion. This great overs iad owing que i Ion has absorbed Alt minor f ones and sunk Thorn into temporary oblivion. The very words a whig and democrats quot a eem to be losing their meaning Ami giving place to the More significant designations of unionist quot and both of these new parties derive accessions from the rank of tho��1 who formerly fought under opposite political banners. In Georgia in Ponsiana in Mississippi in Alabama this is pre eminently the eur a. W e have a a Chi in the first Namtso state that in almost every county the Union ticket a Well As the disunion was composed a fan equal number of whigs and democrats so that whatever might have been the aspect of the convention with reference to the Aej Tion of the state on the Compromise measures that boy in was certain to contain As Many democrats As whigs n Louisiana the same tendency to the extinction of party div Ision t Xii i. Tile great Union meeting was thronged with the Ablest men of both pm ties a Democrat presided Over the Assembly and the hottest democrats in our City sat Side by Side with the most uncompromising Vav High As a ice presidents. In Mississippi ten Wiig skipers oppo a a to disunion have formally renounced politics and party assumed titles indicative of the sentiments which animate them Ami Vav ill hereafter do it tattle under the Standard of the Union atone until its preservation and perpetuity Are secured beyond a peradventure. In Alabama a similar feeling exist though less actively Ira Anifa a a ted i consequence of the Athenee of excitement. Buta a Lay or two ago Henry Clay the Fournier of the whig a arty a july declared he would vote Fogt a a i Nion Democrat of a or or Sidt it in preference to u free soil a Hig and Vve have no doubt that evry whig in the South would proudly and gladly imitate his example. These developments Are to palpable to escape observation. The time has arrived when the Only question in the South must be a Are y of for the Union As it is or it he who is not with us on this great Issue is against us. 11� who would Tiiu turn the Compromise break up the adjustment and set us All afloat mice More on a dark and Stormy a a of uncertainty and agitation is no Friend to the Union let i lips protest whatever they May. The Northern abolitionist who rave at the fugitive slave Law and councils its repeal is As much a did Union tas the Southern fanatic who waxes furious at the abolition of the slav e Trade in the District of Columbia and clamors for the abrogation of the act. Seward is a Dis uni Onist. And to Are Quitman and Soule for All three Are Bent on mischief Are striving to overthrow the recent legislation of Congress and Are doing w whatever they can to produce astute of things that if unchecked would unavoidably us to disunion. Against such men and their principles the Union party of the South made up of whig and democrats who love their country tatter than the scurvy struggles Ami Petty fruits of political Dis sense no is landed together.
