To the. Patron'of the Star.
With the present number ceases our eon
notion with the “Star," the eitablisb.
went having pirated into the hands of Mr.
Jolts T.. MoImIENNT, by , whom it. will
hereafter be conducted. • In taking this
I atop, we have been inflizenced as well by
considdrations affecting the interests of the
patrons of the "Slur," as by a sense of
duty to ourstdves. , Other engagements
during the past year have more or less
withdrawn our attention from the paper,
and interfered with a faithful disebargeof
the duty which every newspaper publisher
owes to the public. Desirieue of des°.
ting our entire time and attention to anoth
er calling, and equally desirious of meet
ing the just expectations of the generous
patrons of the office, wo have, after =tare
deliberation, determined to relin4ulsh
our connection with , the "Star," and
it under the control of some one who will
give it his entire attention. Our succes
sor, Mr. MCILIIENNY, isa practical printer
of ample exporienee—has been more or
less connected with the office for the last
four years—and is in every respect quali
fied to conduct the establishment to the
satisfaction of its patrons. Thoroughly
American and. Republican in his convic
tions, the political tone of the "Slur," will
undergo no change, while the talent, ener
gy, and devotion to business which he is
capable of applying to its active =pay
ment, we feel assured, will enable him to
render the "Star" more interesting and
profitable to its patrons. than it , has been
during our administration. We there
fore cordially commend our successor to
the onnfidence of our friends, and bespeak
for him a continuance of the kind offices
and generous patronage extended to our

relinqUishinent of our commotion with the

He, whore public sentiment is so readily
moulded by the potent influence of the
Press, are by no means of trifling moment.
And he who fails boldly to combat error
and defend truth, and he who wilfully ap.
proves and supports the wrong, are alike
faithless to the high trust committed to•
them. How we have met the responsibil
ities of out i stsm vocation, it is.of course
not for us to say. That we have failed,
has not been the result at all events of a
went of earnest purpose.
The position of the "Star," in meeting
the successive issues that have challenged
public attention, has necessarily involved
as, at times, in active controversy, and, as
l was •natural,- the more fearless and lode
pendent that position the more bitter and
unscrupulous have been the assaults direct
: ed against• us on the'pari of those with
whose prejudices or views tvettave come
in conflict. And no issue has evoked this
hostility more freely than that growing'
out of the great American ptinciple of re
sistauce to the dangerous itiflu eon of po
lidos! Jesuitism in the working of our
Free Institntkons, and the equally danger
ous tendencies of parties to gotta the suf
frages and the sympathies of the hordes of
.unamerizanizod Foreiguero who swarm.
To our Friends,
Irrlt will be seen by ills foiegoing
that the office of the "SIT. and Banner'',
hue passed front the bands of D,, A.

taking this step it is not without due
appreciation. of the responsible position
in which it pieties us, and some knowledge
of the difficulties which must be met by
one who has the control of a public jour
nal. It is a responsible position and one
fraught with care. But by industrious
effort, attention to business, and an ear:
nest desire to please. we hope to meet the
responsibilities, and make the Star meet
with the same favor in the future, at the
hands of its friends, that it has always en
joyed in the past.
Having bean raised and schooled in the
same faith of my worthy predecessor, the
political tone of the Star will be the same

men in K rinses have issued an address to
the people of the United States, in which
they avow their parposti to take no part
in the June , - election for delcgates to the
constitutional State eonventioo. They al
lege, as an entitle for their course, that
"by the lists of qualefied electors returned
by the sheriffs of the different counties
thousands of free State voters have been
ignored, while the names of numerous un
k,nown and naYthical individuals are enter
ed as "qualified electors." All the ma
chinery of the election is to be controlled
by pro slavery partizans, and it would be
suicidal for the free State party to go into
an election in the face of ouch odds, and
with their past experience." This decis•
ion of the free State men renders it cer

be pro-slavery, and that on asvembling in
September next they will form a consult'.
