That we have commit Ted errors connected with our editorial duties we have Little it was the head and not the heart that erred. It is Fate of Man to fall i to error for us to presume that we could be an exception to the general Rule would be Folly in the extreme. We anticipate a Long useful career fur the so Long As.

The translation carolinian of the mfr inst Jfe turns a received Only Lack about la being com plete we think it b6 no risk to say that the representation from state will democrats six whig three of july 21. In and let i the Reader will tar offi Euf papers addressed by Are we learn from several sources that the prominent wigs busily engaged Irr drumming up some appearance of opposition to the democratic nominations recently Mada. They Are Flatt Erim themselves with the idea that Many of the democratic party Are Dis satisfied and that by some of their expert management the disaffected of. All kinds can be tied neck Ani heels to the car of whig Gray. Many of these politicians whose sole abject is the discomfiture and distraction of the democratic party profess adherence to democratic we would ask Why not to democratic usages and democratic measures destroy the organization of a party and you destroy its strength you Virtu ally throw it into the arms of the this it would seem is the object of some in playing first fiddle to the opposition such politicians a bold be classed where they belong in the whig the democratic party should purge it self of All Cuch Dis organizing material. A bold and honorable opposition is to be admired but this Lew trucking system pursued by political outcasts is looked upon with contempt by All honorable men of both parties. Use Iii of tub singular Pertinacity with which the English journals those claiming to Hare to Foiter the charge of voluntary insolvency on the states of this , betrays the desire which exists among them to Dishonour Republican institutions. Amid All the lasses sustained by England at the almost Universal bankruptcy which has overtaken the Long list of monarchical governments that borrowed her.

A temporary suspension of the Republican states of America Calls vituperation even when the their payments. Public Good. Everything for the cause nothing for is the True Maxim. Does any one say we have natural rights above and beyond party and we can act with one party to Day and another to True we have a right but what can be said of the policy of such a course. What Man can Ever possess enough to carry out Good measures whose sincerity is questioned and Bow can any party Trust to that Man s sincerity who to Day advocating the claims of one party and to Morrow the policy of an other. In the midst of counsellors there is wis Dom tis said and political association Ena Bles us to counsel one another. But aside from. Ouf Tlusty As citizens to become attached to a. Political party there is at times unfeigned satisfaction in such associations. Party spirit is condemned by Many unjustly because abuses grow out of it. So do abuses out of every Blessing. The difficulty is Many men have yet to learn that they need not quarrel because they honest difference. Of opinion should never sever socialites. We were made to politics and on various Ether subjects but no will pretend we were made to quarrel with one another. In every political party there Are jarring elements disaffection and jealousies with or without cause. We do not we Carnot All think alike in every topic of a political nature but still As party men we should Che Rish Union. For the purpose of spreading Good principles and establishing Good Mea sures we should cherish it. Union and Cor dial Union is indispensable. But to Cement it ctn cession is necessary to promote Ita object. The majority must always Rule. We Are All Democrat or we Are All we cannot be partly the one and partly the other without As before remarked our influence in both parties annihilating in our minds All serious attachment to the pric4ples of either. If then we. Would belong to one party or the other we must cherish Union and in our associations and we must yield at All times tacit assent to the usages and practices that majorities have established and common consent ratified. No party destitute of these ligaments no party Man who withholds Bis assent from them can Long Prosper or deserve Prosperity. A party with out Union is a party of fragments. The popular will in our state Baa Given to every Man the right of unqualified right of his own rulers. Be greater Boon was Ever conferred on Man and without it we Are living in slavery. Does every Democrat prize it As he should we fear not. And yet How Many Are now sigh ing for the same privilege to the same extent Only aggressive so afas requisite for defence unless indeed the president should think that there has Arisen an extraordinary which according to the Constitution author izes him to convoke an Early session of con Gress. The facility and rapidity with which intelligence is transmitted would enable a full Congress to assemble in thirty Days and should the attitude or acts of Mexico Render necessary a reciprocal declaration of War we must expect an extra session though All will regret necessity for calling it. A citizen s duty is in the meantime Plain. We must stand by oar country Reavy at the trumpet s Call to rally round its Flag 16 obey orders and to protect that Honor which touches to brighten or to taint each of us accordingly As it is upheld. Mexico will declare War. War is her Only resource puny and Puilan Iyoub As some affect to regard As she May really be she is a nosed by us be conquered by us As such and therefore to be fairly estimated As she has been fairly treated. Her War has about it no Romance. It is for Money for sordid gain and for to principle but she has placed herself in a condition in which War is the necessary preliminary of Keystone.
