Ron PATTi . mos having been disappointed in
procuring a nomination from the County Convention,
appears desirous ofattt acting. public attention in a news
paper controversy. In his reply to a nunnber of per..
:sons who solicited him to run against the regularly nom
inated candidate fur Sheriff, he took occasion to insin
uate that we, as the conductors of a public jouroal,had
used our iniluenee to defeat his nomination. This
charge, we fearlessly say, cannot be substautiated by
*single line or paragraph that appeared in our paper,
previous to the meeting of the Conveutiun. On the
Contrary, we took many occasions to speak in praise - of
all the aspirant and to commend them to the party as
worthy of its coerideac7e aid support. The fairness of
our course, in this respect, was noticed and approved
by Patterson himeall, with the remark that we seemed
tbsposed to give them all a "fair shake." When his.
Cyst letter appeared, we repellel, is mild terms, the
charge of using our influence, as publishers of a paper ,
'against his nomination; and in his second epistle, in
stead of substantiating or retracting his charge, as in
*himorandjuitize. he wa.; bound to d ), he changes his
groutd.of atta.;li, and assails use of the editors with
die slon3 c:!mro ).1 to hired and lie rasedslanderers.—
E'er the course osr paper we are matually responsi
ble; we are wilting and ready to answer to the party
for every areizie that has ever appeared in its columns,
and we can saf:ly defy Roily PATTE MON, orany other
ma's, to pint to a single line that would indicate an hos •
tility to his notniaatioe. or that we rased our influence as
editors apti iist him. As to our personal predilections,
we'have yet to learn that any clique has a right to con
trol them, or that political editors have become such
Abject slaves, as to be forced to surrender one of the
prOudest privileges of American citizens; As public
journalists, we always have and . always will, do equal
justice to every democrat, but as freemen we claim the
right to express our preferences, without being called
to account by every person whii may think himself a
It is extreincly unpleasant to he forced into a corm-o
vally with persons professing to act with the democrat
ic party, at a time when we should forget all persomtl
mitten, and unite, our efrbrts in suppott of the ticket,
but the pr.rsevering attacks that have been made upon
us, and the unworthy means tesottecir to by our assail
ants, compel . us to notice and repel their unfounded
charges at once. If posaible, we will refrain from oc
'copying our columns with personal matters until after
theelection of our ticket, when; if these gentlemen de
sire art investiestion of their conduct and ours, in rela
tion to the nominations, they can have it, to their hearts'
MAINe ELECTION.—We believe there is no doubt of
the election of tl e democratic candidate for Governor
in Maine by the people. The Augusta Age, of the
22d, publishes returns from 211 towns and plantations
whickshim that the present majority against Mr An
derion, is I,2ol—ninety four towns and plantations yet
remain to be heard fr.ini, which; gave in 1840, a major..
ity of 1,776 foe Mr. Fairfield. Should the remaining
'towns come in as arch as in 18.10, Mt. Anderson will
:trtysfie elected by nearly ,500 majority. They will proba
bly come in bett-r, beiag in p:Ftions of the State where
4 "7::. ,. .`be disaffection towards the democratic candidate pre
' Tailed; and we already have I...ports from a portion of
- Oxford giving some 150 gain, but we have not the pre
cise vote in tha towns referred to.
We compare with the vote of 1840. because the vote
4 that year exhibited the greatest strength of the fed
' party, and the democratic candidate failed of an
, -iliectionby a few votes only.
For out selves, we have no doubt of Anderson's elec
tion by the people by a majority of not less than" 500
votes over federalism, abolitionism and"ball-rolling."
The aggregate vote in the State for Governor, will
begreatly diminished from that of previous years, and
will not probably exceed 65,000.
Mr. Anderson's plurality over Robinson, the regular
federal candidate, will be about 10,000. Thus it will
be seen that the people of Maine have again put their
irrevocable seal of condemimtion upon fozkralism,
which may be considered as literally defunct, and can
only be effective against the democracy by joining hands
withwhatever faction it may ; by its knavish acts, suc
ceed in fomenting in our ranks.
GOOD . —The democrats of :Montgomery county, in
their late County Convention, exacted a pledge from
the candidates nominated for the Legislature, that they
would oppose all new Banks and monopolies of all
kinds, or the renewal of charters to Banking compa
nies already created, except on the ptinciple of indi
oidttailiability of the respective stockholders. If all
the democratic counties would give their representatives
similar instructions, the Legislature would be relieved
(=tithe horde of bank borers that assemble at Harris
burg during every session, and the people would have
some protection against the fraud and dishonesty 0 f c
porations, from which they hare suffered so severely. I

Tr.rE TO THE LETTER.--TheShau•neetown Gazette,
recently, in an article ['eating on the coming Presiden
tial election, observes:—.•H e who is the friend of Mr.
Van Buren, Mr. Calhoun, Col. Johnson, Mr. Buchanan
or Gen. Cass, and will not support any but his particu
lar favorite, is not a Democrat—he is an enemy in dis
guise. Those great and distinguished men all profess
andadvocate the same political principles, and in the
selection of either of them, all that is gained is personal
preference." This is a correct sentiment and will ap. !
ply to all party .nominations, from the highest to the
lowest offices in the gift of the people.

One of our oldest and most learned divines on Sun
day morning suffered a temporary or rather serious ab
scence of mind; but before the hour of morning service
arrived, was supposed to have entirely recovered, and
went to his church to perform the duties of his calling.
He proceeded regularly with the services of the day,
and preached an extemporaneous discourse which was
declared by many who heard it to be one of the most
eloquent, perspicuous and argumentative sermons they
ever listened to.
After the clergymen arrived home it was noticed that
his mind was again wandering, and proper medical '
treatment was resorted to, and he has since in a great
measure recovered. Ile states that ho has not the
slightest recollection of preaching the last Sabbath, or
even of being at church; so that he must have delivered
an eloquent and lucid discourse while in a state of sus
ponded intellectual action— a phenomenon certainly of
a curious and unusual character. The only discrepan
cies in the services of the day were two; after reading
the commandments the clergyman repeated the sixth,
and when giving out the second hymn he gave out the
same one which had been just previously sung.—N.
An eccentric Iris Emma has been in the habit of fol

jacket, and has a curious crown on his head, funned

He is very reluctant to answer any questions which are

too many. He collect* almost as great an assemblage
around him as his reverend master.
