On, the first and fourth pages of to
day's Jeffersonian . will be found the
President's Messago. It is the weakest
document of the kind ever put forth.
There is nothing decided about. In aim
ing to avoid censure, the President has
failed to utter a sentiment ox opinion wor
thy of admiration. '
By a late number of the "JPiUston Ga
zette," we learn that the co-partnership
existing between Messrs. George M. Ri
chart and Henry S. Philips, in the publi
cation of that Journal, has been dissolved
by mutual consent, the latter retiring
from the concern, leaving its sole man
agement to the former.
The faot that the claim of Rodman M.
Price to the Gubernatorial Chair of New
Jersey will be contested at the next ses
sion of the Legislature of that State has
been made public. Mr. Price has received
a notice to that eliect signed by JOEL
Haywood, who was his competitor for
the office at the late election. The
grounds of contest are, that Mr. Price is
not olighible for the station because he
had not been a resident of the State for
seven years next before the election, and
that his absence therefrom was not upon
business of the State or of. the United
States. The question will be tried by the
Legislature, whose decission will be final.
Until the dispute is settled the President
of the State Senate will act as Governor.
Among the gentlemen named as likely
to be urged for nomination in the next

a high position. The stamp of the large

founded it, will long be left upon the
