JAN. 1 TO DEC. 31, 1852

Abstracts 1367 . 1372

1367 · DTD Sept. 29; ed: 2/1 · Subscribers have been inquiring if the
TRUE DEMOCRAT is going to discontinue the "Clanjamphry" department
of the paper.

This department will be continued in part, but only if it does not interfere with more important matters.


1368 · DTD Oct. 11; adv: 2/5 - The OHIO STATE TIMES, published in Mount Vernon, Ohio. Weekly circulation about 2,000.


1369 - DTD Oct. 30:2/2 - The second editor of the TRUE DEMOCRAT is
represented by a print as hating the Irish because this paper intimated
a doubt that if a member of Congress refused to steal from the
national treasury to help them, he must needs therefore be denounced
as their enemy. The TRUE DEMOCRAT defends itself by asking Irishmen
to look at its record for the past 15 years.


1370 - DTD Nov. 8:2/1 - The FOREST CITY charges that the TRUE DEMOCRAT office was illuminated the night of the Democratic celebration.

This is a gross mistake. Not a light burned in the TRUE DEMOCRAT office save customary lights.


1371 - DTD Nov. 10; ed: 2/2 The FOREST CITY of Nov. 6 contained the
following: "The illumination of the True Democratic establishment
fulfilled the public's belief of its anxiety for admission into the
Democratic fold, and of the cordiality of its hatred towards General
Scott and his friends, and manifested the unfeigned character of its
joy over the Old Hero's defeat."

"Our readers think we should turn aside more often to notice the falsehoods of the FOREST CITY.

"We cannot help it; and therefore must be pardoned the repugnance we have ever manifested to making any allusion to a sheet so unscrupulous, so maudlin, and so foul, that men of all parties hereabouts have come to designate it as 'The City Scavenger!'

The HERALD of the same day contains this paragraph: "The True Democrat office did not illuminate last evening in honor of the election of Pierce and King, the editors being content to make their joy apparent in daily leaders."


1372 - DTD Nov. 15; ed: 2/2 - The PLAIN DEALER of Nov. 10, in an article on stealing, prints an article from the scavenger, the FOREST CITY and one from the New York Times.

"On comparing the two, it will be seen that the fellow Joe Medill, had not sufficient gumption to hide the theft, though he attempted it by occasionally dragging in a few of his own musty thoughts by the tail. Medill's peculiar forte lays in his faculty of scandal and abuse; when he undertakes to make his sheet respectable, he is under the necessity of cabbaging from his political friends.



Abstracts 1373 - 1378

1373 - DTD Nov. 19; ed:2/1 - The pro-slavery Whig journals of New York
are exceedingly bitter against Messrs. Seward and Greely.

"What is their guilt? If any, not in more boldly maintaining their views. They have excercised 'forebearance' until, it seemed to us, to cease to be a virtue,"


[blocks in formation]

1374 - DTD Dec. 25:2/1 The TRUE DEMOCRAT will not be published on Dec. 27 because today is a holy-day and the printers will have off.


1375 - DTD Dec. 25; ed:2/1 The Richmond (Va.) EXAMINER deals merci less blows at the late mock funerals over our great men at Washington. It cites the "resolution of bereavement" about Henry Clay and Daniel Webster along with the weeping amendment in favor of John Calhoun that was offered in the Virginia senate the other day.

This paper talks out. "It is ultra pro-slavery, but bold, 'daringly.' It makes no mealy mouth of free speech but practices and commends it."


1376 DTD Dec. 28; ed:2/1 The sothern papers hatch up and invent stories against Colonel Benton. The latest is that he killed Mr. Calhoun. Colonel Benton soon squashed that story by summoning to the stand Mr. Calhoun's best friend, Mr. Venable. Mr. Venable gave the lie to the story.

"Old Bullion does no mean act. He hates meaness in any and every form. We dare say the Southern prints hostile to him will copy Mr. Venable's letter; but it will be gall to them!"


1377 - DTD Dec. 28:2/3 - Many editorial incongruities spring from the necessity of employing, on almost every daily press, a plurality of editors, and from the non-supervision by a single head of the contributions of each.

"But we see no mode of preventing these incongruties, and so preserving the unity, which is indispensable alike to the character and the highest efficiency, of a newspaper, other than that of submitting all its matter to the supervision of one person, and taking security for that one person's standing perpetually at his post."
