Webb's) communication on the ground of any personason for not receiving at Mr. Graves' hands Colonel Webb's communication, or make some disclaimer whnote from Mr. Graves, purporting to be from Colonel Webb, he meant no disrespect to Mr. Graves, becae not to be drawn into any controversy with Colonel Webb.

James Parton, The life of Horace Greeley, Chapter 16: the Tribune and Fourierism. (search)
n many minds against the Tribune—the final relinquishment of the subject. All this is perfectly well known to the people of this country. Let us come, at once, to the grand climax of the Tribune's Fourierism, the famous discussion of the subject between Horace Greeley and H. J. Raymond, of the Courier and Enquirer, in the year 1846. That discussion finished Fourierism in the United States. Mr. Raymond had left the Tribune, and joined the Courier and Enquirer, at the solicitation of Col. Webb, the editor of the latter. It was a pity the Tribune let him go, for he is a born journalist, and could have helped the Tribune to attain the position of the great, only, undisputed Metropolitan Journal, many years sooner than it will. Horace Greeley is not a born journalist. He is too much in earnest to be a perfect editor. He has too many opinions and preferences. He is a born legislator, a Deviser of Remedies, a Suggester of Expedients, a Framer of Measures. The most successful ed

andsome Mr. Effingham has three cases of issue here, two of which are against Col. Webb, Editor of the Courier and Enquirer, and one against Mr. Weed, Editor of the Cooper moved for judgment by default, as Mr. Weed's counsel had not arrived. Col. Webb, who on passing through Albany, called at Mr. Weed's house, and learned that standing that the default should be entered then if Mr. Weed did not appear. Col. Webb then despatched a messenger to Mr. Weed with this information. The messengereen judicially ascertained. It is worth exactly four hundred dollars. Col. Webb's trial comes on this afternoon; his counsel, C. L. Jordan, Esq., having justd that Cooper had three libel-suits coming off there at that Circuit—two against Webb, one against Weed. Richard and Fenimore argued that this was a lie—the one agaiistinction here taken will be appreciated when we explain that the suits against Webb were indictments for libels on J. Fenimore Cooper! We supposed that Fenimor

ranklin's story—a picture for Polk Charles Dickens and Copyright—charge of malignant falsehood—preaching and practice Col. Webb severely hit—hostility to the Mexican war—violence incited a few sparks—the course of the Tribune—wager with the Heralcity is most untrue; and certainly no costume he ever appeared in would create such a sensation in Broadway as that James Watson Webb would have worn but for the clemency of Governor Seward. Heaven grant our assailant may never hang with such weight on another Whig Executive! We drop him. Colonel Webb had been sentenced to two years imprisonment for fighting a duel. Governor Seward pardoned him before he had served one day of his term. Provocation. A charge of infidelity, in the s war prove to our Nation a curse and the source of infinite calamities.
