Tne ishevHIc Spectator and the Pa rifle Rail Road.
Our cotemjwrary of the Spectator seems to
have obtained free ticket over the Pacific
Rail Road, and is riding back and forth upon
the strength of his permit, just because, per
haps, he has nothing else to do. In his last
issue he devotes several columns to a rehash of
obsolete charges npon the Democracy; reitera
tes his. epithets of "rascality," "fraud" &c; be
comes denunciative, satirical and indignant by
turns, and anon pugnaciously doubles np his
editorial fist, and, shaking it at the Carolinian,
wants to know 'who struck Billy Patterson?'
After ridiculously asserting, or "leaving the
inference on the minds of his readers," that the
Richmond Enquirer, Raleigh Standard, Charles
ton Standard and other leading Democratic
papers, have admitted and themselves proven
the charge of fraud, corruption, chicanery and
rascality on the part of the Cincinnatti conven
tion, the Spectator thus gasconadeth towards us:
"As to the term "unmanly," we assure the
editor that while we do not boast of a burning
desire for personal difficulties, while we would
avoid them so far as we could in safety to our
person and honor, we did not intend to shield
ourselves from amenability to any one who
considered himself personally injured by any
thing we said. We intended to make no per
sonal attack upon any one, but if there be
those who are so anxious for personal conflicts
as to consider themselves personally offended,
then we are personally responsible. We do
not ask the Democratic party to screen us from
So the Spectator man holds himself "person
ally responsible"! Well, we should avail our
self of that 'responsibility' had those taproom
epithets been applied to ourself individually, or
even had they come from a journalist whose
editorial courtesy and gentility rendered him
amenable to the laws of outraged propriety and
trampled troth. We have no disposition to:
enter upon aw argument with the editor of
that journal respecting the splenetic charges he
has seen fit to make npon the Democratic party.
They are unworthy oar serious attention. Btit
we can assure him that if he imagines Ug at all
frightened at his gasconading bnllyism, or con
ceires that We feef the slightest trepidation be-
cause of his belligerent attitude towards us,
most signally and emphatically mistaken.

1. Now it came to pass during the feign of
Thomas, the son of him who was called Drags-
that divers of the laws and other matters per.'
tabling to the liind became distasteful to the
2. And the people murmured, saying one to
another: Behold how that the land is sufferintr
by reason of the great tribute which the laws
command us to pay into the treasury.
3. And behold also the soil yields unto ns no
abundance, and the fruits thereof bless not our
children with plenty,
4. Now therefore let ns call together our
wise men and the seers and the prophets of
our people that they may counsel with the
riller wherein these soi'e evils shall be cast out
and good things for us put iu their stead.
o, Then the wise men and the prophets and
the lawgivers of the land answered with one
accord; yea, verily the. land seemeth accursed
and the laws thereof are burdens to the people:
6. But the ruler can do nothing of himself,
therefore will we lend unto him our wisdom,
and the cunning of our understanding shall be
given him whereby he may destroy the etil
things spoken of and do that which seemeth
good in the eyes of his people.
7. Then girt they up their loins, and hasten
ed one with another unto the place wherein
dwelt the ruler, and "which is called the City of
Oaks by reason of the cedars and multitude of
other trees growing therein.
8. And they gat themselves together at the
house of the ruler; and he spread before them
a great feast, and wine therewith even as water
in its abundance.
9. And tbe wise men and the prophets par
took of the food which the ruler had provided i
btit tvhen he wonld have fain persuaded them
to drink of t lie wine and be merry, they ans

10. It is not meet, most noble ruler, that the
fathers and law-givers and councillors of the
people should drink wine and become as fools

11. Verily the tine prodttceth a pleasant
fruit, and the juice thereof sorely tempteth the
mouth; but lo, the corn of the field hath also
its wine, and the reaper gathereth not his mas'
ter's rye for bread alone.
12. Therefore we pray thee excuse us lest ws
become foolish with much wine, and do that
which is unseemly and bringeth shame and red
ness of eyes.

wisdom and their righteousness, saying, of a

a prophet, whose, tongue was smooth as oi
and his words sweeter than honey in the comb,
spake to tbe multitude saying:
18- Why are ye troubled greatly because of
so email a matter? Is not a lamb better than
a hissing serpent, and sheep more worthy than
hungry wolves?
17. - Wherefore let ns be as lambs, yea even
as sheep which hare na strife and fall net ont

and spake saying: Behold I am not worthy of

I displease ye and the people wax wroth be
cause thereof.

doctors of the law began disputing One with
