fWatou MACON Wednesday, November 1,1826 in party feuds and factious contentions. If the embers of old grudges aro to bo raked up and rekindled at every session, it is impossible for any thing to be done for the permanent benefit of the commonwealth. Wo hope how ever the members will take their seats with the patriotic intention of legislating for the people— f or posterity; and as there are but few elec tions to interrupt their deliberations, that they will go on steadily and harmoniously in pursuit of that object, turning neither to tho right hand nor to the left through any consideration of selfish or local policy. Party spirit has too long distracted the coun cits of our state, and paralyzed the energies of the government. In those enlightened days, the people will not long submit to such imposi tions. If those on whom they have bestowed their suffrages disappoint and betray them* they know that they hold a corrective in-their hands, and will not fail to apply it. If the ap proaching Legislature, forgetting its high duty, spends its time, and consumes the resources of the State, in jealous strifes and party bicker ings, we venture to predict, that tho people, indignant at the insult, will withdraw their con fidence from them, and that by another year, the destinies of the State will be placed in other hands. Among the subjects that will come before the Legislature for deliberation, it is presumed Internal Improvements will claim a considera ble share.. Interesting reports may be expected from the Board of Public Works and the state’s Engineer; in which the.practicability and ex pediency of Canals and Rail Roads will be more fully developed. This is a subject on which the people are deeply interested, and all the light that can be thrown on it is desired. Wo hope too, the improvement of the Oak- mulgeo will not be lost sight of. An appropri ation for the removal of obstructions in this riv er is loudly called for, and a few thousand dol lars judiciously expended in this way, would be of incalculable benefit, not only to the western counties, but to the whole State. The public are at length presented with the first sheet of the Macon Telegraph, which is this morning ushered forth, to meet its destiny from a judging world. Public opinion is a stern and unyielding judge, from tvhoso deci sion, in matters of this sort, there is no appeal _from whose award there is no redress.— Repugnant as this worse than fiery ordeal may be, every Editor must submit to it, and stand or fall by its decree. For ourselves, un willing as wo might have been, under other cir cumstances, to come before the public, yet in the present instance, we do not fear to throw ourseives upon the liberality of the communi ty a community noted for its public spirit, and disposed to reward every species of industry. We are young in editorial lifo, and may be supposed hardly initiated into tho mysteries of the art. But unacquainted as we may be with the qualifications of an Editor, we ftro hot al together unaware of tho responsibilities of his station. We have embarked in the business with our eyei open: and wo know it to bo an arduous, a laborious, and a perplexing task.— An Editor must have the vigilance of a Wash ington, the wisdom of a Jefferson, and the phi losophy of a Franklin, to overcome all the ob stacles he has to encounter. Even then it would be a miracle if he did not give umbrage to some one, or should succeed in satisfying the expectations of one half of his various readers. For ourselves, we shall not expect e- very body to be pleased with our course; we intend to jog on in what we think tho path of our duty, and if we are fortunate enough to merit tho approbation of tho virtuous few, our end will be attained, and we shall be satisfied with our course. We have forborne qt this time from giving our views on-political subjects; not because we take no interest in these matters, or wish to be considered as pursuing an ambiguous course; but because we think the present not a suitable time to start questions of this nature. The e- ditor who, in times of party excitement, ex pects to keep aloof from tho controversies of the day, is like a pilot, beset by counter cur rents, in a -dangerous navigation, who for fear of -Jie evils of one, will avail himself ortno aa* vantages of neither; nod hy endeavoring to sieor between- the. two currents, becomes in volved in tho* intricacies of both, and is over whelmed in the fury of .tlleir collisions. The Ed'lor of the Telegraph neither expects nor w^hes to pursue a neutral course—the situa tion of the times, forbids it; but he. hopes and expects to maintain an independent and an up right one. Feeling as deep an interest lit ..tho prosperity arid Happiness of his country as any one, it is supposed he wjjl. bo allowed to have the same predilections in favor of certain prin ciples that other good men have ; and to have the privilege, whenever he feels - a preference for certain men or certain- measures over o- thers, of expressing that preference, and the reasons for it, whenever it shall become neces sary. For tho present, ns the important Elec tions arc ovqr,.. and the exacerbation of the r.er campuign has happily subsided, we should regret, by any injudicious remark, ofbe* lv "'..»irumental in again nrodsing the demon of party strife—we feel disposed to lot. tho gob lin sleep. But whenever it shall .become ne cessary to express our sentiments in relation to matters and things, or to raise our voice,wfotjbfcv as it is, in behalf of Vlytufe, of Patriotism,- of Democracy, we shall not hesitate to do so.' The publication of tho Telxgbapu has been delayed Somewhat longer than was anticipated, but it being from circumstances he could not control, the Editor deems it unnecessary to a- pologisq. .Arrangements are'.made for a re gular supply of paper, ink, Stc, and no further interruption to its weekly ;ssuo- is approhond- ed. -. • To those of his friends who have so liberal- ' interested themselves in his behalf, the Ed- itor offers his nnfWned acknowlcdmnenm most part, of the and pledges himself to uso his best abilities to becn a very fruitful or.e. It is thought that preserve their friendship and esteem. Our Press boing entirely new, and of a con struction different from what our. workmen lave been accustomed-tp, may not, for, tho few first impressions, deliver its work as neatly ns from tho newness' and ’ elegance of. the type might be expected;. but tho defect, ifiany, will remedied, and the nppcaranco of tho work improve by use. SmP NEWS EXTRAORDINARY. Put to sea, this morning, with a good breeze, the stanch, new built lettcr-of-marquo brig tho Macon Telegraph, bound on a voyage round the world. Having started ona long and perilous expedition, ex posed to pirates, privateers, and king’s cruisers, she • goes armed Jar her. own safety i but her intentions ocfng pacific, she will not fight unless provoked to it Should she be tut—lr-A. hftWAVAt-. el*— —til ——-fc- *— 1 batteries, nail her colours to the mast,’and sink with them flying, •rather than give up ik* ship. The star- spangled banner floats proudly from her mast head, and the captain and crew, regarding it as a protection against every danger, a passport to every clime, and a terror-to every toe, are in fine spirits; aha would die a thousand times, sooner than see it disgraced. She takes out with her a rich cargo of Intelligence, Litera ture, Poetry, Politics, Philosophy, &c. &c. and her consignees are in every part of the globe. ■ Her return enrgo may bo expected to be equally valuable. May the gales of Approbation be auspicious! And may the pilot, making up in vigilance what he may lack in experience, fie able to steer his hark clear of the sands of Indifference, as well as the rocks of Faction—ftbe Scyllaand CharybdiS of craft of this sort)—and having performed his voyage, may lie safely moor her in the haven of Public Confidence, the grand ultimatum of his wishes. ■ :-»• A reward of 250 dollars is offered by the Govern or for the Apprehension'of Robert Thompson, for the murder of Robert T.
