POLITICAL PnrACITING.—TiIe question 'A Neth

son of New England—a gentleman anti a
christian of the highest standing—whose
home is now in a dilferent section of the
country. but who h:nt recently been on a visit
to his n itiNe region, said in, our hearing,
within a few days, that "he did not know but

Know-Nothings have no sympathy
with Free Sidl men, they Nvill get
mine light on that subject by reading
the letter of Henry J. Gardiner, on
the first I.aoe. After avowing thc:e
fentiments, Mr. Gardiner was elected
Governor of Massachusetts by the
largest vote ever polled for any can
didate in that State, and the Legisla
ture is more hostile to the Fugitive
Slave bill than even :%lr. Gardiner.
The Portiiiio was li,tened to With
much ilitcreA; . loit we must be per-
niitted to that it contained one
article too nrinv. The idea that the
public pre , s ought Dot to criticise the
proceedings, lectures, and essay of
the Association, is a ridiculous one
The press is buend to uouce every
thing of the kind, and it would be
faithless to its mission if it failed.
But it. i> also bound to notice the
Association .and its communications
fairly, courteously, and truthfully
The article in the Portfolio did not
oL3ect so touch to the cha,arter of the
notice, as to the notice itself; and in
this the writer of that article took
un-senable ground, and we suspect took
it with a view to create the impression
Ott the minds of those who heard it,
that this paper was just as much in the
waing in its notices as that one which
held up its proceedings to the con
tempt of the public. Now, we have
Only to say, that this object cannot be
t accomplished. We shall criticise all
the proceedings of any public meeting
just as freely as we think the occasion
calls for, and when we err, either in
manner or matter, we will thank those
who think so to correct us; but don't
go to patting us on theTshoulder, and
say, You should not take any notice of
our merely local affairs.

tOMMOTION IN THE CHURCHES.
We commend the following article
to all sincere and earnest-minded
Christians. - It shows that there is
progress even in the churches, and is
an additional inducement to every one
to persevere in well doing, for the
labors of Christian reformers are pro
during encouraging fruits. We do
not know anythintz about this Presby
terian, but will venture a guess that:
it is one of those pro-slavery concerns
that filled its columns with sermons
from conserilatirc ministers in defense
of the fugitive slave bill. It was all
right for ministers of the Gospel to
preach infaror of slavery, but when
the consciences of the people, and the
spirit of the Gospel led the minister to
preach against slavery and the Ne
braska swindle, - then, all at once,
every pfo-slavery paper, secular and
religious, became horrified -at the
"dangers which threatened the cause
of Christianity and religion in Mir
! country, from the use of the Christian
mini: try as the organ of sectional
agitation and political dogmatism."
This article from the Presbyterian is
one of the most encouraging to the
reformer that - we have seen, in a long
time. it shows that pro-slavery men
are about leaving those churches of
‘vhichjhere is hope of reform, and are
about-to unite with, or rather to be
"driven into the Episcopal church, as
the most conservative body among
them." We rejoice at thi, and we
hope the work will go briAly on,
the . Episcopal church being too con
servative to do anything for anti
slavery or any other freforin, will not
be injured by this accession of "the
defenders of slaver•, while the other
churches already strongly inclined to
anti-slavery, will be greatly benefited
TEE FouTrs OF VAIN AND AMBITIOUS
We hope none of our readers 16 . 11
think we copy the following descrip
tion of the antics of a -man seeking
favor and seat in Congress, because
of those notices of Major John Adlum,
his Vineyard, and his grandchildren.
We assure the reader 'that the inser
ticM of this moralizing of Addison .in
the Journal is' purely "acci-dent-al;"
but if it describes anybody hereabouts,
it is no fault of ours:
Thi desire of fame betrays the ambitions
man into such indecencies as are a lessening
to his reputation. lie is still afraid lest any
of his actions shonid be .thrown away in pri
vate, lest his deserts should ,be concealed
front the notice of the world, or receive any
disadvantage front the reports which.others
make - of them. This often sets hint on empty
boasts and estentations of himself, and be.
trays hint into vain, fantastical recitals of his
own performances. Ills discourse generally,
leans one way, and whatever is the sulect
of it, tends obliquely either to the detracting
from others, or the extolling of himself.
Vanity is the natural weakness of an ambi
tious trout, which exposes hint to . the secret
scorn and derision of-those he converses-with,
and ruins the character he is so industrious
td advance by it."
" Calling names does no good ;
to speak worse of anything than it
deserves, does only take off from the
credit of 'the accuser, and haS im
plicitly the force of an apology in the
behalf of the person accused,"
I have always heard it said, that to
confer benefits on the base. minded is
like throwing water into the sea.—

. ADVANCE PAY FOR Ne'W . SPAPERS.
The Pulaski' Democrat of ast week has
the following :
"Some of our patrons have promptly re
sponded to our calls for arrearages. We
shad open new books on the Ist Dcernber,
and all persons who get papers from us aftir
that time wi,hout advance payment, will be
welcolue to ,hem."
We obserVe that tnanv of our country ex
changes arc adopting' the adv;:nce pay sys-
tern, and we hope it will soon be the only
one pr.:cciced. It is an inyariße rule with
those city papers that the comory press has to
compete wi;11, and is the main secret of their
success in "crushing out" the hatter; they
hire no bid debts to lose, nor good ones to
-be swalloWed up in the expense of collection.
The o:d system of credit,. and two or three
prices for a 'newspaper, (accord.w7 to the
time paymen: is made.) is a miser:7We one,
:aid the sooner it is wholly done away with,
the be:ter it witl be for all parties. The pub

We adopted the rule of advance

and it has worked so well that nothing
would induce us to return to the old

FRUITS OF HANEY FREE SPEECH
The Cleveland Leader, speaking of
Wendell Philips and the good to be
accomplished by his lectures, .has the
following truthful picture of the results
of free speech :
• The idea prevails tint harsh• ess, violence,.
a sort of daring and-stormy,power, is needed,
or rather will sprdig out of a real independent
manly character. It i., evidently, false in
fact and finse in logic. Positn c free speed'

than that, it won it tweet...sat:l.y coninoind the
