The following extract from the

been sent to us for publication. Thw
Editor, it will be seen, says that Gov.

Citizen of the Territory.
'We observe by a correspondence
in the North Carolina papers, that the
linn. John Branch is a candidate-tor
Governor of that State.

to obtain his services in the important

little disappointment on i this subject.
W e had ourselves expected vsomething
different and w had a right to do so.
It is however; but fair" to ' add, that
though Gov., B. has been a winter resi

years past, and nasa large planting

in our political contests, nor exercised
any political rights in Florida, and has

'facts respecting Mr. Clay.
i. lie is a slaveholder, ami has nev

intimated any intention of doing so.
He is one of the fonuder, and the

Hon beguiled into complete subser
viency to slavery. In his speech on
that subject, he treated with contempt
the laboring classes of freemen, called
them "white slaves," and contrasted
their situation with tht of "blAck
slaves," and pronounced the condi
tion of the latter to be far superior,
and spoke with abhorrance of our wives
and daughters being obliged tn per
forin labors which he was pleated to
call "servile." There is no evidence
within our knowledge that he has al
tered his views respecting the

4. He is the author of the project for
the acquisition, of Texas, having made
the first motion on the subject in the
House of Representatives, on ti e 3d
of April, 1820. And there is "no rea
son to suppose he has ever abandoned
the project. The 7.eal of the southern
papers in his interest forbids a doubt
fon theVubject."- 7
5. He is irrevocably anil in princi
pie opposed to the abolition ofalavery
in the District of Columbia and Flori
da. His resolutions offered in the
Senate as an amendment to Mr. Cal
houn's, virtually charged the petition
ers on this subject with a breach of the
public faith. In this respect he goes
quite beyond even Mr. Van Buren.
who rests his pledge to veto a bill for
the purpose solely on existing expe
diency. 6. lie is on good grounds believed to
be opposed to the call of a convention
in Kentucky for the amendment of the
'State Constitution, and principally fur
fear they will take measures to facili
tate the abolition of slavery in the
State. All the leading papers of the
state in his interest oppose it, and his
son as well as his leading friends whp
were members of the late legislature
were strenuously opposed to the bill.
7V He has openly given his voice for
the exclusion of abolitionists from the
frivileges and sympathies of society,
it his speech on Mr. Calhoun's reso
lution, he urged the importance of
"keeping the abolitionists separate and
distiuct.from all other classes, stand
ing-ouHn bold and prominent relief,
unmixed with' the restof the commu

P. S. Ihe exact -Federal
- Fhe fottiiwihg paragraph from the
New Orleans Commercial BulUtin
contains sentiments which must find a
ready echo in the breast of every citi
zen who knows how to value a gov
ernment of laws:
' We are glad to learn that proceed
ings have commenced in the Criminal
Court of this city, with a view to
detect and punish the actors in the
Lynch affair at Baton IUue. Our
energetic- Attorney General seems
determined not to suffer this usurpa
tion of the sword of justice by the hands
of a lawless mob to pass off with impu
nity. A thorough investigation will
be m;ide into the circumstances, and, if
the offending parties are caught, they
may expect to be handled without
jloves. Judge Lynch will meet with
no favor in Louisiana, however enor
mous and heinous may have been the
crimes that invoked his jurisdiction.
Although, in.giving a narrative of the
transaction, our description partook of
the burlesque and comico-serious style,
we would be the last to justify so fla
grant an outrage upon the laws of the
country. Such scenes are calculated to
make us blush for "or national charac
ter, degraded while we deplore the
fact that there "doe's exists in our Union
a class of Individuals who, withoat res
traint, wantonly trample underfoot the
most sacred of all rights. Let impsr
tial justice be meted out to the guilty,
and such an example be made of of
fender as will d-ter all others from tak
ing the law.into their hands and setting
themselves up as judges and executiun. .

ious, or deserving of summary justice.
The laws must be ceepected. An out
rage committed upon an individual urr
derthe protection of the law is an in
sult to the majesty of the law, and al
though the MilTerer by the outrage be a
monster of depravity, the enormity of
offences is merged in the high consid
eration of preserving unharmed -the -foundation
upon which rests the glori
ous fabric of society."
