Those artielea have been - ungeullcmauly

To say nothing about the use and np
phcnlioti of such language, to particular
individuals, no editor who pretends to
class himself among gentlemen, would a I
low sui h lan;uiii:o in the columns of his
paper; much loss, glory in being tho au
thor of such language himself. Such
conduct, ought la place any member of
the editorial fraternity, beyond the fellow
ship of such fraternity. A man who will

such attacks upon personal character, mutt
be, lost to all sense of shame very low
in the depths of moral polution and infa

the Land Ollice, he would have had alt
his jeulous apprehensions, of fraud, dissi

khrw that these officers were guilty of
Mich gross and fraudulent transactions, as
he charged upon them, he ought to have
taken steps to have brought them to justice.
It wns his duty a a good citizen, for the
public welfare, to have doimso. If he
did- not know it, he hud no right to have
laird ened hia paper, with such slander and
base inuendoeTsTTouched'in" surh uncouth
and unfriendly terms. In either case, he
is justly reprehensible.
' Uesides, what have these government
officers done, to call down such maledic
tions upon them ? They simply voted for
Judge Ferguson, aa Delegate to Congress.
This is thn extent of their crime the
cause of so many defamatory articles, in
that sheet. against them. They took no
active part in tho election, as did other
government ollicials, for Mr. Chapman;

bhould do, went to the polls and deposited
a vote for the man they thought best qual

Lecu held up between the heavens and
the earth, as guilty of the basest rascality
and fraud, that could be Leaped upon ho
inanity. For this simple reason, memory
has been souuded to its utmost depths, and
imagination goaded on to Us utmost activ
ity, to find something to say against them ;
lruihtess hearsay, extorted and magnified,
has been paraded forth as facte, and
charged upon these men, with all tho im
portance that could Le commanded by a
T. II. Robertson. Such raking and
scraping of the past, as has been exhibit
ed in this case, in order to find something
to say against them, shows on its own face,
such evidence of intnttion, that no body
believes it. The ihing itself, carries 'with
it, its own refutation. Even Mr. 11.'
own friends, think less of him for such a
'course, no matter how much they may
sneer approvingly, in his face. Even he,
r thinks less of himself, than before. This
is evident, from tho fact, that he dares
not Ijok these men in the face, nor shake
their hand, as cordially as he once could.
He is evidently conscious, that he has en
deavored to do them an injury. Rather
than injure them, however, such a course
will ouly tend, Sampson like, to pull down
ruin upon himself. The LIow, struck,
will only rebound against his owu pate,

have long been disgusted with such a
rourse.'and' especially With remain papers
in the Territory. The public do not wish
such slang, in a news paper ; aotj .as for
the immediate patron of a purer, they
do not want to pay for such vulgar twad
dle and foul aspersions.
Besides, every paper should Lo, more
or less, a family new papqr devoted to
the interest of the family ; . one that the
family must have. But a paper thus con
ducted, is not fit to Le introduced into the
family circle. Where is the parent, who
would allow his children to reed, week af.
lor week, such harsh and uncouth Ian
guage, as we often find, in many of the
papers, claiming to be devoted to the fam
ily interest f No one, who ha any re
gard for their purity, aud i correct moral
training. A profane awearer, if he is not
too vile a wretch, and too deep sunk in
vice, will usually, be' careful of his Ian
guage, in tho presence of his family,
and such, we should conceive to be the
case, with those member of the press
whose papers are all besmeered and be-
stuttered, with' the filth and corruption of
their owu defilement.' If a paper is not
fit to le taken , to an , editors own
family, certainly ha Can not expect that il
is fit for the family of others. We have
heard these very statements expressed, in
reference to those very articles, in the
paper under consideration and we would
siigjjest to Aft". R and to every other ed
itor, i who is guilty of such foul mouth
slanagan, that the public do not wish it,
disapprove it. They may not speak t an
editor personally about it ; but one who is

Suppose a man has been defamed or in
jured, the columns of a paper is not the
pkice to seek redress.' With all such mat
ters, there is a righl way lo remedy them
and tho right way ia the best way. .
Squabbles are usually confined to
few ; the public have no interest in them
and why should they be pestered with
them ? ' We humbly submit, thu it is the
hight of impudence, to seek to obtrude
such personal matters, upon the public
through the columns of a public journal
Hut when no injury has been done, and
men are pursuing the even tenor of their
way, in a quiet, unobtrusive, gentlemanly
manner, for a journalist, because he has
the columns pf n paper at his controlv to
defame and blacken the character of such.
or strive to do so, the case is still more
agrivating.' Character ia. the most
cred thing, under the 'sun when once
lost, air is lost. The man who tamper
with it, especially without any provocation,
i unworthy a place among men ; he ia a
dangerous man ; he puts his fingers, ali
contaminated, into the most sacred place
that can be found upon earth. An editor
who filches a moji'a purse, is a saint, com
pared with on, who will endeavor to
blacken his character, and wont only des
m i a a
troy bis reputation, tnrougn. tne columns
of his paper.,
The press, certainly, needs reforming
in this respect. If the adage is true
Like priest, like people," how much
more true is this of the press t The iu
fluence of the press is far more potent
than all other influences combined ; hence
the imperative necessity, that that influ
ence should be, of the highest and purest
character. Its tone of morals ought to
be healthy and vigorous, rather than a
mass of moral rottenness and impurity.
Personalities and abuse, so often found in
journal of the day, are a disgrace to
them, and stamps their authors with mer
ited disgrace. Such base imputations,
never ought to tarnish the whiteness, of
the paper on which they are impressed,
much less the purity, of so many, compos
ing the family circle. If editor would
make it a rule, never to say in their pa
pers, what they would not say to a man's
face, the pre would Le the palladium of
peace and harmony, rather than of dis
cord aud anarchy.

the firm of Palmer &. Averill, of this city,
who has just returned from St. Louis, that
the Rait Road Packet, Tropic, which plie
bet ween Jefferson City and Westonr on
her do wn wa rd trip, Oct.1 (L in going around
a bend, two mile below- Waverly, Mo.,
was suddenly struck by a strong wind and
forced against a snag, which stove a hole
in her side, and un' n Lout three min
utes, in twenty-five feet of water, within
fifty feet of shore. She had fifty barrels
of lime in her hold, which exploded, as
soon a it came in contact with the water,
raising such a quantity of steam as to make
it impossible to distinguish any object.
This caused great confusion among the
passengers, and many of them immediate
ly plunged into the river. . According to
the Captain's books, seven were drowned.
The passengers were of the opinion, that
the number of drowned was much larger.
The current wa very ewift, and the bank
at the shore, was nearly fifty feet in a per
pendicular height, which rendered their
escape extremely difficult.
' One lady, that plunged into the water,
swam ashore with apparent ease, and was
rescued. ' '

Treaty Concluded with the Paw

Indian affaire came down ou the Omaha
faoiu Nebraska to. Weston, euroute for
Washington. He reports having made a
full and satisfactory treaty with the Paw
nee at Table Creek, in the vicinity of Ne

government has now bought all the land
of the Pawnees, with the exception of thir
ty L forty mile oa the Loup Fork. . The
treaty lasted three days, and wa closed
with satisfaction to all. The Pawnees
agree to send their children over ten year
of age to mission acnool lo be established
also to send apprentice from their young
men to learn the diflerent trades. .5
We hope that the labors of Uncle Sam
and those of ihe Missionaries who attempt
to civilixe the Pawnees, will be crowned
with success; but we confess that we are
a little sceptical on this point. The Paw

city, on Tuesday last, after an absence of
some three month, during which time he
has visited Salt Lake City, and intermedi

Indian depredation are unabated, and are
daily growing of a more daring and aggra
vated character YV hen he left Salt Lake,
the Mormon had fortified Fort, Bridger,
and aay they will defend that fort against
the ' passage of the U nit ed States troops;
that can be sent against them, Lc , which
means lhat they will run the very first time
bui troops are brought to a starw against
them. But the spirit of Morm6nism is de
cidedly of a hostile character,-and will re
quire chastisement, before being reduced
to subordination and a decent respect to

On the way in, Mr. Russell was chased
by the Cheyennes, on several occasions.'
Their shots came so near hi destruction
as to pierce hi saddle bags, coat and hat,

men, in the empluy of Russell & Waddell
were killed by the Cheyennes, but we do
