Hi. crevieue attacks upon other pern?. bore the sttimpef setUed med.tation, ot industry in col - lec.M? fects, and of a thorough peneverance to accomplish his object.' . Wh.a he struck, the Mow a as sure, fie was mppo.'ed to be ot.e ot those, who did nolhinar rafldv r.nlhirf in ilw heat of blood, and nothing of which his foresight did not trace the eikl and consequeuce." .Whether 1 merit the character which my ad - yersary ha, thus given me, I shall leave to others to determine; I confess, I can discern in it nothing that onght to disparage me in the e es of my friends, unless it be a disparagement that lo the performance of my editorial duties I am not moved by lmty resentments, thnt I do no - thing without first making mysislf well at quaiut - U, With iacta, and without well weihing the consequences. If this is Uie charge, I pleaJ pilty. Mr. Van Wycfe aays, ' TuWlc ofliccra and the conduct of public men are always legili male suljccts of scrutiny, for investigation and auimsdvertion." 1 his is precisely the rule of Conduct I have always adopted, and scrupulously observed during my Whole editorial career I cannot pretend to charge my memory with the numberless trifles that bave almost daily fallen from my pen during the eighteen years that this paper has been. in existence, but relviu upon the maxims I have steadily prescribed to my - elf, I challenge my adversaries to produce a single Instance to the contrary But Mr. Vat. Wyclr, a few piges afterwardr, forgets hi own distinction between ptil.Iij oiid priralu men, sa fir as to consider it the duly of editors to lash the great vices of individuals and be points out the ramb!er, the duellist, and the drunkard, especially the lat, as fit objects of public exposure and censnre. " Here (says he) might an editor lay on his lath ; strike at this fatal source of mischief ; draw forth to day the inebriated tot, and Xnnch wilh caustic, the bloat ed debauchee, who fragrant at every pore,' io - iects the atmosphere he breathes, and a walkio pestilence.1 This it all very well, and for aught I knew, may be.a very proper course for an editor to purt ue ; it is, however, not mine ; hut the remark 1 hve to make is, (tir.t it i, not very coni istent with the rule which Mr. Vau Wyck hail before laid down. As to the lalse and mischievous seniimc'Jt o penly advanced by Mr. Van Wyck, thatia cs of libels, the law afTords no adequate rvmedr. and that therefor individuals are justified in ta king the puniihment into theirown bauds, I cha ritably coupler it as advanced in a hasty mo nient, and therefore abstain lrom tlioe remarks upon K wbich a just indignation suggests. If this be really his atttled opinion, I advise him, from a regard tp decorum, to resign witlioot delay the of. fice of dislrict - atternry, to w hich he has lately been appointed, but which he cannot, with auy d etit regard to propriety, continue to bold.

Captain Wright. - - Major Davis, of tbe U.

Whilst in tins pin re, nn 1 hursdav last, tlie pria oner was released Irom ruatody bv a writ ha beaa corpus, before a Court cabled to determine the case. The Court, aftrr suitable investigation, decided that the orders of General Jackson were iiilormnl. as they contained no aneciflc ciittcRB aaiusi uie pri. - iiier, who was accorUin, ly rreaed flora custody.

My friend, When I returned to tnv town. i ncarct wnn regret tlut mv uncle ( Howard ) anu family lutl been murdered, and that then - town was destroyed If an Indian kills white man, I w ill have him punished if a white man kills an Indian he ought to be punished. I wish vim to find out who has done this murder, and let me know what those In dians have done, that made Uie white men kill our people." F ram the JLiledeeviile Journal, June 1. In our subsequent column! will be fimnd the document relative to Uie release of captain Wright, by the civil authority, from the mill tary at rest of general Jackson, who had ordered him to be taken to Fort Hawkins and con - fined in irons, till the determination of the president should be known. The circumstance has excited considerable inquiry, and given rise to much difference of opinion. Some blame, others commend, the interference of the court. If captain Writtht were not in the sen ice of the United Stales at the time he commanded Ihe Chehaw expedition, pentral Jackson unquestionably had nothing to do with him and that he was not, is proved we think conclusively by the fact, that the quota aml. - tia lo which he belonged, tvu detached forthetole purpose of attntiii? in the reduction of Amelit W.I S I - . M itiunii, una not xo perform a tour ot duty on the frontier or in the IiMian nation, which was never contemplated, we are certain, by either the general t - overntneut or the executive of this state, at the time these tmops were call ed for and detailed. As soon therefore as A roelia Island wai occupied, the requisition of me presinent oemg complied with, tliev were entitled to their discharge. Their being afterward ordered into service bv an officer of the regular army, and kept several months, without the consent of the governor, was a flagrant luiauou or ins authority, and would probably ave been resisted as such in'hefirni but for the complying du - posiiion wbich (Jeor - u Has aiwavs mamtcttd towards the United States, lle.njr unjustly detained, the executive lud an uiiilotibted riht to withdraw the whole or any part of the detachment, vhenev - er it should be deemed expedient to do so. uence, captain bright is responsible to the militia authority of the state, and to that a - lone, for his conduct, unless a civil Drnserut inn jc instituted atrainst him for murder which would elicit the facts, and probably be as cood a course - as any. That lie nuhl to be brought rxiore some trmunal, and it guilty punislied, we are clearly ot opinion. The Chehaw Indians we are informed, esti mate the pi - opcrtv lost in the destruction of their town, at eight thousand do Hurt. The en. tire Cretk nation will meet al Fort - Mitchell on the 7ih of this month, to take the affair in to consideration. An intemperate letter, we learn, lias iren received by the governor iiom general Jackson, to which a spirited answer has been returned and a fbr.nal demand of iptain Wi - iht's person lias been also made, with which we presume the gnvei nur will not comply, if at all, till he hear from the president, to whom he has written on the sulject Fcrt - MitclteU, JlTiy5, 18 Id.

Caution A sanz of Counterfeiters were re centiy apirehend:d in Wew - Yorlt, and among uie kiiis louna in ineir possession was some counterfeit five dollar bills of the Sauk of Orange County. These bills" are very well executed, but on a cioe ana scrupulous examination, and com panson oi one 01 the centime bills of a similar slump, the counterfeit is easily detected. The quality or Ihe paper is a little inferior, nod the colour of it not so regular es the genuine bills i nc wiion - pirns ia u nine amauer, ami not so wen exccuteil as tne genuine ones, narticu ar v the representation of the maid inilliiug the cow.
