the conduct of our official servants ; and
with the wants and necessities of the mil

only to labor, and desire above every thing
else, the prosperity of their country.
For some cease, industry has been com

there is less that passes from hnud to hand.
The poor must beg fora day's work, to
earn their daily meal, and be refused.
Citizens ! for all this there is a cause
somewhere hi the machined of the laws
or their administrntion. Is it not because
,we have bought too much, and sold too
lisle! Continual purchases frets for-

tr no labor for our artisans, end consequent

of things existed,
For once, in our history, the truth is op

For the Journal.
As the time for making our county nom.
inations will soon have arrived I will with
your permission, offer is In Pt remarks upon
the subject. We believe it will bo co"ne
ded that there is generally too much indif
ference manifested in the selection of del
egates Those desisous of dieing nomi
nations consult a few of their friends In
the different districts, who attend to hav
ing delegates elected favorable to the stand
ing candidates for office ; and in this way
nominations are frequently made that are
far from being acceptable to the majority
of the citizens, consequently as scion as
they announced dissatisfaction it expresso
in all quartets; this.lends to division, and
i finally to defeat. Now who is responsible
for the consequences ? We answer those
who take no interest in our primary meet
' lugs. If our tax payers, those who labor
and toil to support our government, were
to turn out end select delegates on whose
honesty integrity and judgement they
could rely, then toe might expect to have
I put • to nomination, a ticket that would not
I disgrace our party and which could be tri
luraphnt tly elected.
It is, certainly, the imperative duty of
every ritizen of a free government .to a:-
tend to what affects not only his own inter
ests but the interests of the whole commu
nity, and the nine who remains indiffer
ent to and perhaps ignorant of the affairs
ol his country is tin unworthy citizen, and_
little nppercintes the glorious boon which

Opinions on Slavery.
The Southern journals continue to "ugi•
tate" the Slavery question. The - New
Orleans Crescent is expressing its alarm
that Missouri will become a Free State,
and thus diminibh the number of States
holding slaves. The Misses vi Democrat
per contra, is rejoiceing over ;he prospect.
The Savannah News, too, declares that
Judge Green. nProfessor in the law school
at L'ebanon, Tennessee, although a native
of Virginia, and a lifelong slaveholder, as
was his father before him, is ic a danger
ous as well as untrue citixen of the South.'
The reason given for this fierce denuncia
tion is, that thakvenerable Professor enter
tain, "the damnable sentiment that Sla
very is an evil, morally, socially and polit
ically." In sell•defence, Professor Green
suggests that hi: considers the "evil' ,
greater to the master than to the slave;
that he does not regard the relation of mas
ter and slave as being wrong and that
until within the last twenty-five years his
opinions, now so obnoxious, were those of
all leading Southern men. But this avails
him nothing. The News admits that Jef
ferson, Madison and others like them,
concurred in Professor Green's views, but
avers that if they had lived till the present
time they would have known better. Ac
cordingly, Professor Green is stigmatized
as a danger us man, and the law school at
Lebanon is urged to diarniis him.
