The Journal of last week had several commuuicatious upou the general subjnct of "Ilotation in Office," and the special subject of rotating the present incuinbents of the several county offices out and others in. Of these coniraunications onc signed ''More Anon" is about ",arf . and 'arf," the writer being in favor of a re-election of the present officers, and equally in favor of doing' justice to all parts of the County by the eleutiou of a uew set. This being a family mattoi1 we do not propose to rociew the comtnunications or to enter upon a discussion of the principie of rotation, but merely to put on record some important adtniesions made by tho writers, admissions that may liave some siguificance hereafter. The "X" correspondent of the Journal says: "But my purposc in this short nddress was to notice a singular letter which apjoared in the columna of the Journal of last week, signed "More Anon," insisting upon the rs-elcction of our Couuty Officers, who have faithfully performed their official duties. In this catogory, I ind mysolf compellcd to include i LocoToco Sheriff and Register, as wcll as several Republicana, holding respectfully the offices of Clerk, Treasurer, Prosecuting Attorney, &c. As a Republican I have strong objections to contiuuing the Sheriff and Register, and as a party man I deem it bad policy to continue the others "or life, or during good behavior." It will be seen that "X" declines to "avor "the re-election of our county officers who have faithfully performed their official duties," and because he would be compelled to inelude in the category a 'Locofoco Sheriff and Register. Another correspondent "Young America," hits "More Anon," the anti-rotation ■'arf and 'arf' man in this wise: "If the argument of 3'our correspondent is good for anything, it is good for ieeping Mr. Leonard and Mr. Sheldon in office, for nobody disputes but that thcy make very good officers." Should the Democratie Convention, as it very likely may, place Messrs. Sheldon and Leonard in nomination each for a second term we may have occasion to :hrow these admissions in the face of some electioneer who in his zeal will not hesi" tate to charge these officers with all kinds of unfitness; but we hope not, "for nobody dispules" the statement of "Young America." ET The "outs" and "ins" araong our republican friends are having a jolly time of it; the "ins" trying to keep in, and the "outs" trying to thrust the "ins" out and themselves in. Possession is said to be nine points in the law, which proverb applied politically would leave a larga balance in favor of the "ins." We shall see. ■ i iii - ►■ - jfpy For sonie weeks we have searched our republican exchanges for evidence of Lincoln entbusiaisni; but in vain, it ica'n't tierc. Their columns groan with argumenta iu favor of Bkeckinkidge, and attacks upon Docgi.as, Bakky, and the Deraooracy in general; but nary a word about Lincoln. At last wehave"struck a lead," discoTcred a crack with a glimmer of light ehiiiing through In a late nuinber of the Jackson Citizen, "clean down' at the bottom of a column, in place of the usual query ''What is this li for;" or the other au usual dcclarntion. "this lino juat filis the column," we found the foliomug: "jjy Hurrab f"r Ahrnham Lincoln." and in all the thirty-two columns, that "and nothing more" about the rail-splitting standard bearer or his principies. - Try the first republican paper that comes into your hands and soe it' you can find as much of Lincoln ns we did in the Oitiun. BitECKiN'RiDGE is the republican candidate. he goes in for intervention; so do the republicana, and why not for him? G?" Tho Detroit Adccrttser makes merry at tho expense of a''stalwart negro woman," who a faw daya since made an unsuccesshil atternpt to eoax l'a favorita and trusty servant, a negro mau" from his maator with whom he was en route fir Lako Superior. The Advcrttscr says the perverse servant " allowed he knaw his own business best," and was unwilling to eschange plenty of hoe-cake and borniny for freedom and uncertainty. The Adveruser should not bo makjng ligbtof so dark a subject, but inst?ad should cali iipon the officor8 of the law to enforce the "personal liberty bill," which would have given the master a home at Jack8on and forced froedom upon the unappreciating chattel. The Advertiser approved the enactment of the law, and should not willingly permit it to remain a dead letter upon the statute book.
