Dix to suppress ihe “Personal” notices to rebel sympathizers heretofore published in the Confederate organ of this city. The editor of that journal does' not like this/‘despotism”’ as he calls it, and appeals to the public for sympathy aujd its opinion upon so gross an “out rage, ’ which he says has'been perpetra ted against the liberty of the press. The copperheads will no doubt sympathize, but. loyal people wi.l be- ratified at the action taken by the autnoritii s While we have constantly condemned the arbi trary exercise of despotic power, as. evinced towards the press and individu a s by an illegal or unconstitutional sup pression of newspapers and arrests of persons, we nevertheless recognize the right of our Government to establish (du ring a time of war ) a censorship" over newspaper publications intended to give aid and comfort to our enemies. Many ot the “personal-*’ alluded to were un doubtedly “conlFab.iud communications” which no loyai publisher would admit into his columns. While we condemn any arbitrary proceedings that restrict Uie discussion of public affairs or a na tional policy, we cannot find fault with tliie ordi r prohibiting tfie .puhlication of mhtter which'might, aha doubtless did, convey infonnutiem to someone. or miu.y‘of Xhq re gels''now in armp against our government. If the “War Depart ment have the right or power to prevent letters so Oon'ffderiftes from passing our lines into the enemy 's country, the same aqUierity may be exe: cised in prohibit ing a notoriously disloyal journal from publishing in i(s cdluiuhs the same kind of letters, with the intention of convey ing tliein in bulk, whenever an opportu nity ior eominimicariiig with’ the rebels. The enforcement of this prohibitory or der, does not therefore, belong to the category of arbitrary or despotic mea sures, that have been employed by dif ferent officials in the exercise of doubtful powers; hence, we deem it a proper ex ercise of legitimate authority, which the people will doubtless endorse and ap prove. In the good old days of slow coaches and slower mails, w'hen Northern New York was as far opt of the world as some of our Northwestern Territories are now, there was gathered around the ]K)fet-office one nighfi in a small town, quiie a crowd, to hear the news brought by the stage just in. “ What's the news,” asked an old fellow, who w 7 as not asworldy-wise as he might have been — “ivhat’a the news?” “Martin Van Buren has been appointed Minister to Great Britain.” said a friend at his elbow. “.Minister to Great Britain! The idea of his being appointed Minister to Great Britain ! ■ Y\ by he can’t preach no mure than I can!,’ Old Joshua Swallow, a veteran minis ter, was the other day preaching against the spiritual call to the ministry, and re lated an anecdote of Caleb who gave liis experience in this wise—“l wxis ode day plowing and was called to preach by a voice saying, ‘Caleb! Caleb V Who could have called me thus?’’ A boy in the back part of the congregation, says Mr. Swallow,exclaimed, “Maybe it was bull-frog, Mr. Jones.” “,’ said a loiTto a young lady, “what a pity it is that you wasn’t a mir ror.” “Why so ?” said the blushing lady. “Because you would be such a good -lookiug-lass.” By reason of his capture of Fort Fish er, Gem Terry is entided to au addition to bn* name.
