A Post Office Case.
In a Justice's Court at Seheneeta a few days
since, the Postmaster of that city brought an ae

Post - Office Lam'. The defendant, sometime in
the month of July last, mailed at the Post Office
in that city a Catalogue of Union College, direc
ted the Principal of Springville Acackmy. On
'he first page of the pamphlet was writtien the
word,. "with respects of J. Foster." It was con
tended on the part of the pro.ecution, that the
words thus written was a violation of the 30th
section of the act, and the defendant therefore
foible' for the penalty of $5, preecribed by that
section. Oil the part of the defendant it was in

PITTSBUIIOO, FRIDAY, SEPT. 23,1842
see First Page.
The Gazette, in reply to our request to point
out the anti-tariff articles which have appeared in
this paper, resorts to the miserable subterfuge of
quoting an article from the "Manufacturer" ,nf
Dec. 15.18314 in support of its charges. [fails arki
cle had been written by oneof the editors of the Post,
and was much more anti.tariff than it is, it would
not, in the slightest degree, gn to show that the
"Post" is what the Gazette save it is—an Anti*
Tariff paper. Rut the editor of the Gazette should
have known better than to attempt to prove his
charge by such evidence, even though it was del- I
-tied nut of his old files by his preceptor In editor.
ship, the indefatigable Craig. It is sufficient to
show the weakness of this manoeuvre, to say that
the extract alluded to appeared in the Manufac
turer nearly ; ten years ago, and FIVE YEA RS
before THOMAS PHILLIPS becane editor of
that paper. Hoai'would the editor of the Gazette
and his preceptor, Mi. Craig, like it if the payer
they control were to be considered a masonic or•
gan, because the editor was a lodge-going mason
in 1832, and his Mentor would not thin admit an
timasemic articles into the Gazette? They wou'd
undoubtedly think it very unfair so to treat them
and their paper. Or if we were to insist that Mr.
Craig is a Jackson man, (as he once was) in spite
of all he might say and do to show the contrary,
would he confider himself fairly dealt with? Un
doubtedly not. And yet the Gazette wishes to
make the editors of the Post accountable, not for
their own views, hut for the views of other men,
held and expressed ten years ago.
But what is the srticle quoted after all. It is
nothing more nor less than the Compromise pol
icy, which was afterwards carried out by (lay ,
and forms the crowning glory of his political life.
And the editors of the Gazette, in dcnou icing the
article quoted, well knew that they hurt the Clay
Whigs more than they did the Morning Post.
As to the insinuation that our article of yester
day was intended to "blind the eyes of the people
until after the election"—we cast it back with un •
mingled scorn. A man who, being an unrenounc
ing mason, ammed control of an antimasonic or
gan, without defining his position in regard to,
masonry, should hold his peace about "blinding
the eyes of the people:" We have rarely met with
an act of more unblushing impudence.

annoyances in their first attempt to get up
stigma in the Clay' engine, arid if the iliffi
cukiea continue, we greatly fear that nit

wish to purchase a Clay paper must be on
their guard—i. e. put on "Safety Guards."

The Gazette, to prove that the Post is
an anti-tariff paper, quotes from an Amer ,

Invaluable Remedy.—The extreme beauty of the
Teeth, their indispensable use, and the frequency of their
decay, has led to many Inventions for their preservation;
yet how to pre• serve them in a state of health an pristine
beauty, to the latest periods of existence, was entirely
unknown until the discovery of the above invaluable
preparation. It forms a pure tincture composed of veg
etabie ingredients, and is possessed of the must delicious
odor. It eradicates tartar from the teeth, removes spot s
of incipient decay. polishes and preserves the enamel, to
which it gives a pearl like whiteness, and, from its disin.
feeling properties, possesses the virtue of giving sweetness
to the breath.
As an ...hitt Scorbutic, the Gums also share in its trans.

heathy action and redress is induced, which offers to the
notice of the medic! practitioner indubitable evidence of
their healthful state. It has been examined and used by
several of the hest physicians of this City; who have no
