In another column, on the editorial page, an indignant denial was given to a report, said to have been industriously circulated in Bennington and the neighboring villages, that the Journal was to be influenced by a sect and controlled by a party. ‘The blockheads who have had the desperate temerity to propagate this falsehood,’ declared the editor, ‘have yet to learn our character. We should like to see the man, or body of men, the single sect or particular party, that would dare to chalk out our limits, or dictate our words, or hold us accountable for the soundness of our faith, or the spirit of our doctrines. The bare insinuation of such an attempt, where we are known, would be met with derision. We conduct a hireling press!—we shall see.’
