The Observer has "observed" the article

it. It knows of but one individnal• who
has the time and the patience to wade
through itsfutterminable length—and thit
is the man who read the celebrated letter
of Gov. Wise to the Alabama editor. But
the Observer is willing to take the &slitters
version of positio.ns. And now what of
it? What does it prove ? Simply that this

able than other gentlemen in the country

As to the opinion of the Se7u;se/ that we
are a "bold man," even to "recklessness,"
we have a word tosay. We are sometimes
inclined to think that the opinion is, in
part, correct. We recollect' of being so
"bold," nay, even so "reckless,' as to raise
our voice and use our pen in denunciation
ofthe "Wilmot proviso" when all the mem
bers of the present State Administration,
whose organ the awitiae/is, with but one ex
ception, quivered and quaked before the
then popular cry of "tree dirt" and "free
men." We maintained the integrity of
the party then as we maintain it now. We
stood by the administration of Jilin K.
Pout then as we stand by that of Jima
Boatissis now ! We denounced the traitor
Waxer and his followers then, as we de
nounce the traitor FOXIMY and hi follow

were a "bold" and a Ireekless" "scribbler"
then, just as the organs of- them men say

the day when the very men, who were then
stemma when our "boldness" and "reeking's

the Tariff question, when all Pennsylvania
arrayed itself against President Poi —the
Kansas and Nebraska bill, when there was
another quaking and quivering among the
weak-kneed brethren. In neither instance
did we flinch—we "boldly" carried the flag
of the party ? -we "recklessly" stood by the
Administration, and we are there now.—

with a long rope and told if he did'nt leave

strung up to a tree. The Mayor seized his

in the main, are not legitimate subjects for

at which all such delicacy must be laid aside.
This county has already been saddled with a
bill of costs of many thousand dollars in an
attempt to enforee the laws against this crimi

has had one fair legal trial, and another aqua&

arrived at in both cases was the same. Twelve
responsible, intelligent men, have twice pro

that the end of the case, in view of these facts,
ought to have been reached, anti the people re
lieved from ihrtber taxation on his account.—
Let us also add,that we do not think there la a
tax payer in Erie county that desires this un
fortunate man's blood, but so long as the law
punishes the crime of murder with.death, they
believe every murderer should be hang; they
believe, also, that when Courts halt, and palter,
