Suchcjiiduct is worthy of all commendation,
anl ianu. placa their Editor, as wo have no
doubt it will, under lasting obligation!. We can.
not conceive of a higher or more substantial com
pliment. Ungratelul must be the man, who
waulj not love to honor such a constituency.
Per Contra. How w.s it, about one year
since, with some of the oliicer of Columbia coun
.ty, when the idea w.isconceivrd of raising an op.
position paper in CIonmsburj ? Did Ihey step
forward manfully, and resolve lo sustain the or
franol'lhe Democratic parly, that had faithfully
defended their principles for the last twelve years,
and was then zealously sustaining the County,
Stale and National Nominations, and the Editor
. 'f the Columbia Democrat, who had served over
twenly.five years in the "political battlefield."
and just paid an exorbitant price for the location
at the county Seat without opposition ? Did they
emulate the glorious example of the "Bedford
JDmiurrary," or did they encourage the "opposi
lion movement," by the profuse bestowal of of
ficial patronage ?

How this text of Zachary, is lived up to,
and carried out, by It is appointees to office !
We are certain, that timing the last four
years, we have not heard of so many mail
mid Post-office have been com
mitted since the advent of Collamer,
Taylor, and Co. Almost every paper
we open contains an account of a post
ollice felony. Talk about officers under
the last administration. Nine months have
convinced every one, of the honesty, ca
pacity, and fidelity of whig Post-masters
and clerks.
The mail of Nov. 3d,from Oswego, to N.

Amount of $2,000 or S3.000 which should

At Springfield, Ohio, a few days since, a
Jnnil agent was arrested for rohberry of the
mail. SI, 200, have been recovered.
In our own Connty is a case of daring
and successful robbery. The culprit is ar
rested 43,08 1 having been found upon him.
We have not pretended to keep an ac
count of these things, and no doubt many
t.mre could be gathered up, with a very lit
tie trouble. But these are enough to show
the character for Honesty, Capacity and
Fidelity, which "the all decency party"
wear before the world. What a commen
tary is this, upon the promise of the Whig
Party to conduct the government and reform
abuses !

Aii Idea.
While the subject of the modification of
the post office regulations, is exciting an
interest, and giving a movement to the
massess which congress is bound to res
pect; we wish to throw out to our readers
accasionally, such ideas, views, and no
tions, as may be useful or new.
Many changes are being spoken of, as
necessary, either forconvenience or safely;
and as effecting beneficially, the collection
and amount of revenue. It has been made
a question, whether the lowering of the
postage or letters, would result to the good,
pecuniarily, of the Department, and at the
same time, to the convenience of the Peo
ple. We hope that upon this point, Con
gress will display some of its wisdom.
In most governmental measures, the mean
is perhaps tho true position.
Among the many projects and changes
which will probably be submitted to, and
acted upon, by Congress, we would like to
see this one appear.
It is our opinion that with the exception
of Newspapers, sent from the office of
Publication, all matters passing through
the mails, should be prepaid. We go in
for Equality, and think no one entitled
either by i'ti?e right, or superior abili.
ties, or splendid achievements, to the priv
ilege of the frank.
We are not aware that this thing is new.
Indeed we think it is not. If it is, we
claim the honor. It has always been our
opinion, that much money would be sa
ved to the Department, by passing a law
for the prepayment of all mail matter.
And to the franking privelege we are de
cidedly opposed. We think men who get
right dollars per-day, can prepay iheir
constituents. Wc shall revert to this a

Governors of Pennsylvania.
From the time when the Stale Constitu

sent lime, the list of executives is as
follows, which may serve as an item of pol
itical intelligence to our young men .

Thomas McKka.v, Democrat elect. d 1 79C.

ally so innocent as they would have us to
believe, why pour out so many pens full ol
wrath on Judge Parsons ?
SiiixK, and Portkh, also, come in for
their share, and they endeavor to hide the
responsibility of Johnson, by putting for
ward the acts done by those democratic
governors. If their excellencies, Porter
and Shunk, were wrong in this thing, let
them take ihe blame; but in what wav
will this hffect Wm. F. Johnston? Two
wrongs do not make a right, and the pres.
cut Governor is as guilty as if Messrs Por
ter and Shunk had pardoned twice the ac
tual number.
Such a defence merely shows the der.rlh
of arguments, labored under by his defen
dcrs; and we think that Judge Parsons,
lias done his duty nobly and fearlessly :
let Governor Johnson "go and do likewise."

Trto hundred and twenty-three inemheis were

How lie sot Out.
Once upon a time, in the early part of
the spring, I was driving along the road in
an an open waggon; and overtook two
boys, from eleven to fifteen years of age;
the elder of whom, was carrying some but
ler. It was extremely muddy, and in
course, the walking miserable. In fact, I
dont think I ever saw it much worse.
The boys asked me for a ride, which I
readily granted, and they clambered into
my carry-all. Thus, we jogged along un
til we came to, if possib'e, a still muddier
portion of the road, and here, at a little
house ;dong side, the boys told me they
lived, and requested me to slop.
I did so, and holding the buiter fur the
elder, he proceed to get upon terra Jinna.
The mother came out, and was profuse in
her thanks for my kindness. During this
lime, the youngest stood njion the top of
the wapgnii-body, looking at the mud
and piteously asking, 'bow wi 1 I gel out ?
how will I get out ?' and reaching his hnnils
towards his mother, who was approachii g,
for aid.
Just while he was in the very njnny of
uspense, as to his getting nut, my horses
made a step or two forward, and he '(
out where the clay and mire was about
six inches ileep. lie got up, a perlect pic
ture of rfr toiler, and taking a hastv
glance at his profile in the mud. I cracked
the w hip and made tracks.
