With this number of the Reporter we enter upon.
the Ninth year of its existence. We can do no bet
ter in indulging in retrospection and solemn rem
tions,4han quote the words of a departed poetess,
once a hisident, as she is still the pride of our town,
expressing all we would wish to say :—
" Another year ! another year
So whispers in his fleet career,
Wild reckless time. Rut an the past,
tie leaves the 'Mohair - of his wirm
To hide the cantering griefs Which east
A gloom o'er memory's mmny spring."
We cannoLperrnit the occasion to pass w@iont
rendering our acknowledgements to our friends,and
patrons who have so liberaPysustained the Repor

tronage is a sufficient guarantee that the earnest en
deavors to.propitiaie the good_will and.confidence
of the intelligesped wading yecim . anry of Bradford

We en'er upon a new volume with a determi

while we shall maintain ulith liberality and inde

The prospeet tw New York.
The New York Daily Globe brings us the pro
ceedings of the great meeting of the Radical Demo
cracy.of that city, held in the Park, on Tuesday,
the 6th inst. ' The meeting-is 4 represented as a tre
mendous gathering, and mat serve as eritistion . to
judge of the state of political feeling in the Empire
State. Addresses . were delivered by Hon. C. C.
Cambreting,' joh n Van Buren, Hon. Benjamin F.
Butler, and Gen. Nye. The speeches of these gen
tlemen are manly, eloquent, able and independent;
and the resolutions set forth in a clear and satisfac
tory, manner, the wrongs and insults they havesuf
feted ; repudiate the nominations, declaring that
the great state,of New York has 'had no hand in
making them, and that under no circumstances will
they support them. The New York Evening Post,
and thelktily Globe, two able democratic papers of
this city of New York, are also denouncing the pro
ceedings as outraging the rights of ttu3 Radical De
mocracy of thavState. - The — former declares that
" Gen. Taylor will sweep the South from Cape May
to Key West 3" and the latter, while it "declares
without reserve that Gen. Taylor can never receive
the support of the Glebe,"' says also, "that as he
now 'stands before the - People of both parties his
election wouhl be preferable to that of Crum. His
election would annihilate Hunkerism in this State,
and in the Union." Gen. Taylor's friends, it will
be seen, refused to commit, him further, in the late
From the spirit and determination displayed by
all of the Barnbumer papers, we arc satisfied that
all attempts ke reconcile them with the Conservi

out such hopes, deceive themselves, if they are ho
nest Such calculations are delusive and futile.—
The man who attempts it, however ° high he may
stand at present, loses their confidence and respect.
ive Enust•make up our minds to do without the aid
of New York, in electing our candidates. It is, to
be sure, taking a strong force from the Democratic
party--for to be sanguine of Victory, we have 'al
ways counted upon New York— but we do not en
tirely despair, if the South remain true to the pledges
they have given of support to our candidates.—
Should they betray us, and go en crow for Gen. T.,
for the reascn of his being a Slaveholder, our defeat
would be certain and overwhelming. kut we can
hardly believe they will be treacherous enout i ,h

To do him reverence..
This we i lai ae one of the saddest sights on
earth—to view a proud man with no honor—a
It great Statesman" with no friends. And he who
beholds his likeness in this pictiue must not find
fault with the drawing, but with the selfish politi
cian—he should condemn the sordid character, not
the faithful liainer.
But let us look at the reverse of this picture.—
The truly great Statesman we regard as one who
plants himself firmly upon the only true and sub
stantial basis of all individual and social greatness—
love to God and love to Man. Living in the midst
of ts , Democracy, he desires to warm its faith—to
elevate its hopes-4o purify its morals, and to di
rect its energies. Aiming to achieve the greatest
good of the greatest number, he discards all selfish
considerations when they stand in the way of Duty.
Resolved tc do Right regardless of consequences,
he does not counsel with short-righted expediency,
or sordid self-interest. 'He speaks with no forked
tongue—he pretends to no friendship which he does
not feel—he acts with no double policy in regard to
measures affecting the interests of the toiling Md.

in the Washington . Union, in which he declares
that Florida will not support the Democratic nomi

obliged, to submit to any test or pledge, before tak
ing his seat in the Convention—niir do we now see
in the Union a word or line disapproving of his de
termination. The venerable and consistent editor's
