Watch 2 P29 2;) SOME OF AN EDITOR'S MISERIES \ , 'Tistrue, the Ed'tor's life Is one of toil, and care, and strife, With many a rub and kirk ; To please us all he surely tru s, But what with truth, and vhut with lies, He neper makes it hit. TheEd'tor's life '.—Oh ! hard il if, To thus endure the weekly qui- I On efforts of his pen ; , The Ed'tor vn eme canforgid-. \ The Ed'tor cannot sin and tin, He cannot please all men.\ An editor, of all other men (if mm v,<. may be called, tho', by the by, we are looked upon by some as a kind of nopdescripts, belonging neither to hea- ven nor earth, possessed of the faculties of ubiquity and omniscience, and almost capable of omnipo- tence^ is doomed to undergo the greatest cares, vexations and perplexities. There are a thousand things that engross his attention ; and to commit an error in one, -is to give offence to a number of his pations, who are by no means sparing m their condemnation. When he thinks he is conferring a favor, it not unfrequently happens that his good nature is imp >sed upon, and becomes unwittingly, the medium through which the feelings of individ- uals are injured, and the peaee of families distur- bed. If an editor presumes to exercise a little in- dependence in his vocation, he is punished for his arrogance by the loss of patronage. If he does not till his sheet with news of importance, wheth- er there be any or not, he is pronounced an igno- ramus, and unfit for an editor. If he does not write in the style of a rigid moralist, he is char- ged with laxity of principles. If he does not fill at least one column every week with something laughable, his folio is pronounced uninteresting.— If a public nuisance should exist, public notice of it would offend; and not to notice it would be cen- sured. If he publishes the laws of the state, old and young maids grumble ; if he does not, civil- ians frown. These, with a thousand other per- plexities, the editor of a country village paper is heir to. The fact is— TlM Editor who icills to please, Must humbly crenel upon Iris knees, And kiss the hand that beats, him ; Or, if he dares presume to walk, Must toe the. mark that others chalk, And chringc to all who meet him. The situation of an editor in a country village, is far more critical than those in the cities ; for in a village there is'an absolute barrenness of inci- dent; and i f we strike at folly ann vice as it every where abounds, some sir Oracle will start up and say he is meant, and make a devil of a clatter a- bout it. In the city there are abundant materials from which to manufacture paragraphs, and the population being largo, should an editorial shaft ruffle the. feathers of a delinquent, he can skulk among the crowd and his fluttering not be percei- \ ed. But far different is the situation of an editor of a village paper—for if he presumes to touch in the least the political feelings of any person with whom he has dealings, he comes into your office, \ brim full of wrath and cabbage,'' and withdraws his subscription. His correspondents quarrel and abuse each other in the columns of his paper, and to reconcile the misunderstanding, they shake hands, and agree to lay all tho blame to the editor.

So we go. But it is our determination, as far as we are able, to do nought but what is right, \ And let the grumblers grumble.\ There is so much genuine description in,the fol- lowing article, taken from a Savannah paper, of the perplexities to w hich the editor of a public journal is subject, that we cannot forego the pleas- ure of laying it before our renders, for their edifi- cation and our own benefit.— Lansingburgh Gaz.

As we sat turning<over the leaves of our sub- scription list the other morning, we looked np and saw our old friend Fudge Puffendorf before us. \ 1 see you have not yet learned all the secrets of your trade, says he, and I have called to give you a little wholesome advice.\ We have great pleasure in receiving advice— \ And too little discretion in following it, said he —I see how it is ; but no matter; I will open to you\ But. here' he was interrupted by a knocking at tho door, and in a moment he sunk behind the screen, as our patron A. entered. '• 1 am very sorry, says Mr. A., that you came out with that piece this morning; it will play the very devil with your concern. I have heard several peisons say that they meant to stop the paper.\ Can't help it; an editor you know must speak his mind. \ <) certainly ! I like to see editors independent. But then it is alwass best to be on the right =idp. And to tell you the'truth, I have no wish to sup- port a paper 'hat propagates such dangerous doc- trines. 1 just give you a piece of my mind.— Good morning.\ And he went ouU but the door bad scarcely clo- sed, when in came Mr. B. \That was a capital piece this morning, says he; pist the thing. Put my name down as a subscri- ber. I like to see editors independent. Here's a long advertisement, keep it in a month.\ But before we had time to congratulate ourselves on the event, Mr C. made his appearance. \ Sir, says he, I have called to tell you that you may stop my paper. \I can never support an edit- or who entertains such!absurd opinions.\ Certainly, sir—shalKve receiptyouV bill ? \ Why as to that, anothet lime wiM do as well. But I take the liberty of telling you that the tariff is ruinous to the country, and moreover, diabolical; and if you do not come out against it, we pat you down,—that's all. I like to see editors independ- ent.\ And he departed in high dudgeon. But in a moment after, Mr. I), came in. \ Good morning, Mr. Editor, says l.e, I have just called to let yon know that my friend Air. Spiflli- kins is about to start for Alderman, and I wish you to give him a lift in your paper.\ Why, to be sure, said we, Spifflikins is a very decent man, bnt suppose we might select a more useful Alderman. \ True. I must confess there are smarter men than Mr. Spifflikins. but then I have a icason for wish- ing hiin elected. And certainly yon cannot refuse to support him, coi&idering we have always sup- ported you, and as we all agree in politics.\ That to be. sure is a great matter, but in the se- lection of public officers, we ought to loolt to the public good; and not to be governed by private feeling. \ Very well sir, my practice ii to support those who support me. Just stop my paper—I am for an independent editor who will stick to his friends without regard to consequences.\ And he turned npon his heel in a great pet.— But our embarrassment was not at an end. Mr. D's back was scan i-ly turned before in came Mr. E. \ I understand that old Spifflikins has been put up as a candidate for Alderman. Now I want ydii to.-ky him out as cold as a wedge. It may be done in three lines. And, do you hear,? call him an old fqol—an old dnnder head—and all that kind of thing. Don't fear consequences! There's no- thing like independence in an editor.\ But consider Mr. E. there is something due to the feelings of a worthy old man, even though he be no Solomon, It is not. every one for whom we cannot vote, that we feel free to arraign before the public. \ What' you won't write against him, then ! Just stop my paper. I won't support any editdir who can't be independent.\ You see, sir, (said we to ait friend -puffenclorf, who rejoined us as the heavy tramp of our last an- gry visiter died away on the ear,) how'impossible it is for an editor fo j-.lea.se every body. These are all equally friends ; all equally admirers of the independence of the press. And yet either of them would, in a moment, sacrifice it to his own conven- ience ; would trample it under foot, when ever lr crossed his own path, or interfered with his own particular feelings or prejudices. You see tha' the same paragraph which excites the admiration of one will prove the hostility of the other. Aarl that in-criiites'ted elections, the editor is posted be- tween two fires ; he is sure to be scorched by one, perhaps both. \ You have found it out then, at last (said on* old friend Puffendorf;) that is the very subject of- and concerning which, I wish to give you a little sage advice. In the first place let me advise you. never to commit yourself on any subject, If you find it necessary to say any thing, speak very du- biously ; first say a smart thing on this tide, and then on that. If you speak out, you will most cer- tainfy interfere with some of the preconceiyed no- ». ti'ons of our party, andtihen you will be sure to lose business. In all cases of contested elections, never support or oppose any candidate; as you will certainly make an enemy of the parly you op- pose ; and perhaps also of the party whose inter- est you espouse. Because it is not often that a candidate will be content with the measure of praise you may be disposed to mete out. If )i/ ; have no character of his own, lie will expect you to give him one, and if your imagination is not very prolific, he will be disappointed in these ju§t expectations. If he have pretentions, he will be convinced that you have not done him justice. If he lose his election, he will attribute his failure to your want of zeal, or ability in his cause; and he will dislike you on this account. It is always dan- gerous for au editor to oppose an individual; it i's scarcely less so to support him.\ Why, according to your policy, an editor must say nothing at all. \ You have it very nearly. There are few topics he can approach and speak out, without crossing the views of sonic -one. But this \simple maxim will bear you triumphantly through every difficul- ty. Whatever may be the subject, however un- important it may, at the first view appear— new commit yourself Let your editorial bo like Del phic oracles, every paragraph an enigma. Every reader will then interpret it so as to suit his own„ I prejudices and opinions. This is what has raised J many an editor in popularity, and extended hi« I patronage. This is what they mean when they talk about the Indepenelcnee of the Press.\ Death of Sir Humphrey Davy. —The name of this distinguished philosopher, it Is now. certain, is to be associated with those of the two other ceK ebrated Englishmen, benefactors of science, who have departed from the theatre of their labors in the course of the last six months. Even as one of a trio so illustrious, if the important results which attended his scientific observations alone be con- sidered, Sir Humphrey Davy miiift be undoubted ly regarded as pre-emment. To him the scientific world is principally indebted for its acquaintance with the powers and properties of the Voltaic Bat- tery; while his discoveries of Sodium and Potas- sium, and the invention of the Safety-Lamp are deservedly classed among the most valuable pre* ents wh ich philosophy ever made to art, and will not fail to transmit his name to posterity. The re- moval from among us of so eminent a man, how- ever complete bis career, cannot fail to excite mel- ancholy feelings. He died at Geneva, ou the 29th of May ; and every honor was paid to his remains, by all the residents of that city in any wise distiii- guished either in science or literature.— Athcncufif Late Instruction. —Socrates in his old age, lear. ned to play upon a musical instrument. Cato, aged SO, began to learn Greek; and Plutarch, in his old age, acquired Latin. John Gelida, of Valentin, in Spain, did not begin the study of Belles-Letters, until he was 40 years old. Henry , Spelman, having in his youth neglected the scien- ces, resumed them at the age of 5(1, with extraor- dinary success. Fairfax, after having been tho general of tiie pirliamentary army in England, went to Oxford and took his degree as Doctor of Law. Colbert, when minister, and almost 69 years of age, returned to his Latin and his Law, in a situation where the neglect of one, if not both, might have been thought excusable; and Mons. Le Tillier, chancellor of France, reverted to the learning of logic that he might dispute with his grandchildren.— Athencum. Tlic Threes Doctors. —An eminent author saith \There are three doctors, Dr. Diet, Dr. 0.uiet. and Dr. Merrymati: they are reported to be excel- lent physicians, and if kept at a constant pension their fees will not be very costly. How to read a Newspaper. —If a literary papfi, begin at the first page and read to the last; tafrc ever; article in its course. If a commercial paper, do the samo, omitting advertisements and marine news—they may be examined at leisure. Until you do this, it is ignorant presumption to express an opinion of its merits; you have no right to call it dry, uninteresting, or to say there is no news.— Yon'm.iy as well take up a new novel, look at the title-pajje, and pronounce it valueless and without interest; condemn the plot, satirize the characters, and denounce tiro author for his stupidity.— Mir. Moschetoes. —A correspondent of the Courier and Enquirer, premising thattha season when-this oity is most annoyed with moschetoes haa arrived, calls the attention of housekeepers to what he calls a cer- tain and easy method of destroying them, or rath- er of preventing their existence. It is, to throw two or three small shovel-fulls of common wood ashes into each cistern of rain water, which will ef- fectually destroy the larva from which the insect is produced. This process should be repeated every three or four weeks, during the season of mosche- toes. The writer states, that the experiment has been tried in a neighboring city with success, and that the addition of the ashes has been found to clarify the water. The recipe looks reasonable e- noagh. Whoever has looked into a cistern, or into any receptacle of standing water, in warm weath- er, must nave observed multitudes of insects, from an eighth to a fourth of an inch ifl length, moving about With great rapidity, and generally darting to the bottom when the water is disturbed. Prom these insects the moscheto is produced. A. further examination will show quantities of their empty sloughs on the surface of the water, and mosche- toes will generally be fouud about the top of the cistern, trying their just unfolded wings, and flying slowly anrl feebly when disturbed.
