TO THE CITIZENS OF THE SOUTHERN STA1 is \ T a moment of great and increasing emhnr» rassini nt and difficulty, a number of jour fellow-citizens, merrbeis of your countrj I v birth or by adoption, interested by common pur suits in your prosperity, connected by common dangers with yo ir welfare, beg leave to address you. In the present state of society, it is almost un . necessary to notice, it would not b” easy to ex aggerate the influence of the Press. •Thisnutm- ment of know edge and of power, onccso humble, so insignificant, known only in the closets of the studious, or the privileged intercourse of the learned, addressing itself to the few in an ancient and exclusive language has, in modern davs. in consequence of the wide diffusion of education, been directed to the great mass of society with decided effect, and now exercises an almost des potic controul over the opinionsof mankind. Need wc mention, that in the struggles of cu pidity, of ambition and of power,the claims of the careless or the weak are always disregarded. The rights which are now maintained before this great tribunal, are thrust aside or tramtdrd un der foot. Silence, under its approach, is inter preted into acquiescence in its justice J ferbeai- ance, under its usurpations, is Considered as sub mission to its authority ; and. public opinion, now the great arbiter of the earth, is formed bv its unceasing efforts. fc He irfist have paid but litt!“ attention to the history of the age in which he lives, of to the course of human events, who does not perceive the strong influence, which public opinion, thus guided, may exercise on our destiny. We have permitted doctrines injurious to our character, hostile to our peace and welfare, pernicious and unfonnded. to circulate without correction ; even misrepresentation and falsehood, the errors of ignorance, the perversions of prejudice, the de* lusions of fanaticism, have been suffered to pass unnoticed. The presumptions of to-day serve as facts to-inbvrow, and furnish materials w ith which the Tress, if not corrected or enlightened, will mislead that judgment by which we must all Lt governed. Under such circumstances, shall we remain unmindful of the aim and object, the progress and direction of this mighty power 7 Shall a people, whose situation is so peculiar, whose welfare may be so easily put in jeopardy, whose interests are in some measure isolated, and there fore the more easily assailed, continue indiffer ent to the perils that surround them 7 We may slumber, but there are those who will not sleep ; Wo may avert our eyes from danger, but evil w ill not the less readily nor the less rapidly approach us. Nor is it one inteiest only wc have to guard; one duty to perform. We- are members of a vast confederacy , harmoniously united for many years by the bonds of friendship, and bv the ben efits of free and uninterrupted intercouse. En deared to each other bv the recollection of com mon dangers, and common triumphs, by a great national heritage of g’orv and liberty—we are as sociated by an instrument of no ordinary charac ter; a Charter which is the boast ofour own country, and the admiration of mankind. It should be a pecuf'ar duty, an unceasing effort tf) preserve this Charter in its pristine purity and vigour, at once maintaining its poweis unimpair ed. and its boundaries distinct and inviolate. With these Impressions, a number of vour fel low citizens, connected with you by interest and by feeling, ns the most effectual means of shield-, ing you from the undue anduequal operation of the press, have associated themselves together to publish one ef those Journals which are now be come the popular instruments for the diffusion of knowledge, the discussion of doetrines, and the investigation of truth; which are employed not' only to bring to notice the works that enlarge of correct in any department the boundaries of hu man knowledge, but to review. a;sn. the opinions of the day. as in their perpetual fluctuations, they act on the character and conduct of society It shall be among our first objects to vindicate the rights, the privileges, the charact r of the Southern States ; to arrest, if possible, that cur- rent of misrepresentation which has been direct.’ edso steadily against onr country g-ncrallv, and the South in particular ; and to' offer to our fal low citizens one Journal, which they may read without finding themselves the objects of perp& tual sarcams or of affected coinmisseration. It shall he considered as a paramount duty to watch over the administration of our IYdi-ril Government, and to guard against ail violations of the constitution. In our views ofthat instrd- ment, we shall he guided by no party fcelir-g* — WS shall endeavor, in all case's, to ascertain its true and - signification, and to irive i'' t CONFECTIONARY, No. 288 Broad-Stre: t.
