We learn from Bangor that an exception was on foot at that place, which as may well be supposed caused some excitement. For the purpose of dividing off, and arresting the trespassers on the public lands in the disputed Territory, Whether from one side or tile other of the boundary line; the Legislature has authorized the employment of an adequate force, to be immediately despatched on sleds, full y equipped " for the purpose, under the direction of the Sheriff of the County of Penobscot, Hastings Strickland, Esq., and the Land Agent M'lntyre.

Precept ft. Practice. There is nothing in the world we more admire in the conduct of our political men, than a consistent and honest csurse. When we say consistent, we do not mean i dogged adherence to what is wrong: but an open and avowed attachment to certain measures, and an honest use of means to secure their success. There is nothing of more importance to the people—the honest, toiling, tax-paying sovereigns—the real "hewers of wood, and drawers of water," than a careful and strict examination into the conduct of the individuals they may have selected to attend to their interest. And that exami. nation should be made, when every feeling pi pretljudice has dispossessed the mind. When they think that the man of their choice can do no wrong—then is the time when the danger is near at hand; and t hey beco me the duped victims of cun> ling and knavery; and to late they see their error. It is now, lias ever been, and we trust will ever be our maxim, that "lie that is d...

Rail Road Meeting. In another column will bo found the proceedings of a very large and respectable meeting of the citizens of our Borough, on a subject of vital importance to the whole State. Nothing is more obvious to the candid reader, than the inadequacy of the canal above this point, to accommodate, the already great, and still increasing trade on the public improvements. But for the unfortunate flood of last summer, this fact would have been clearly demosntrated. 1 his weak point in the great chain, must be strengthened, or the increase ot trade from the extensions, must eventually be blockaded, at this point. Every thing should be done to render every portion equal to the means of the other, or eventually, the danger of delay, on this route will direct the trade through other channels to market, and the State suffer inconceivably, in its income. Wc hope the people will urge upon the Legislature the im. portance of immediate action on this subject. It is a subject ol ...

More trouble in the Wigwam It seems that our old Democratic friend Price, is not the onl y poor fellow who it in trouble about his appointments. Mr. Joseph Riter has been in a most terrible quandary for some time, and the trouble eecins to thicken upon him. But let us tell the story in properorder. Ri'er found, that to fill the dignified station of mud boss, he had a large sup. ply of hungry patriots, who desired a share of the loves and fishes. Being a stranger he wisely concluded, that he would wait and examine their various petitions. He did so; at.d lo! each one arrayed nearly the same names. The "tall chickens" having signed all the petitions, so as lo make them think, that they were the friends of all. Taking it for grunted, that a private word in the corner, would at once secure their favorite, of which the others would be none the wiser, Riter being a Jackson man, an^ being anxious to be in keeping with the poteen themselves, he concluded, that to lessen the difficul...
