to rind Mr. Ilartzell sensitive to this rebuke. Wc
hope other who entertain similar opiuinns, and
pursue n similar course, may be eiually so. This
was the reason, nud the only reason which induced
the publication of the speech.

Hence wc considered Mr. Ilarker' severe criticism

Tint Mr. II irtzcll say wc havo "misrepresented

nre orry for it. Hi letter given us no evidence of
the fuct. When wc receive that evidence, we will
vory cheerfully make Hindi correction nstlm evidence

nnd in fact ho did a.-k it, wo do believe, nml his
niidicncn wo think have u very distinct recollection
id it. If he did not, how unaccountable, that Mr.
U.iitv-H i-lioitld have listened to Mr, barker's
scathing answers to that iiiestion, and when he
r.mio to reply, never once havr alluded to the fact
thftt the qire.tion 011 which the whole was based,
was n mere invention of Mr. Ilarker'. How easily
could he have spoiled all of Mr. Barker's artillery

Hut Mr. llartscll has nnother defence. "If 1
risked such a iUetion at all, it was w ith reference I
to that clas of nbolitioiiMtK with whom 1 I.Mr. II. I

Joseph Barker, about the iiuiiiorit.v ot tho llilile,

Hut tho publication of Mr, Barker' speech wa
n garbling of tho disciision. Wo think not.
What was said about abolition, wa 11 sort of epi
sode in the discussion, complete in itself, and not
nUcoting tho iiiuril of tho discussion 0110 way or
Hut wo arc cliargod with "partiality, "one-
sidelines," anil inconsistency with
tho doing of
nn honorable editor."
It ua hco what wo havo done. Mr. Ilart.ell, in
a discussion of general interest, took occasion to
assault a cause, tho cause of abolitionism, which it
i the especial work of the Buglo to ailvocato and
defend. Thi induced a reply fronj hi antagonist,
w hich wa published. Our report is a correct one.
Neither Mr. II. nor anybody clso hn yet disputed it.
Thi wo had a right to do thi wo wero Wind to
do. Wo were desirous of publishing Mr. Hart.eU'
remark along w ith Mr. Ilarker', that our render
.could judgo for themselves of their merits and
of the justice of Mr, Barker's reply. Wo applied
to tho Phonographic lloportors, tho only pluco
whoro they coirfd lie obtained, for a copy of ull
Mr. HurtitclFs remnvki on tho topic. They do
lincd furnishing tliem to us without Mr. Ilartzoll's
revision and consent. Wo next received tho above
tetter. Desirous still to save words and lot our
readers judge of tho justico of Mr. IlartiuH's
tharges against us, ut our reimost, tho Keporters
wrote out Mr. H.'s remarks, out of thoir regular
order, and dispatched them to liim, tlmt wo might
roccivo them and publish them with tliis letter.
Horo is Mr. Harwell's reply to this fair nnd honor
able proposition, sont through ono of tho lloportors :
" Say to Friend Robinison, that ho can only mako
me amends for the injiiNticodono 1110, by publishing
my lottor, (if ho has not.) It is impossiblo to do
jne justice, as an auti-slttvcry ailvocato, beforo nnti

THE MAINE LAW.

it to staunch the tear of tho drunkard' wife, nnd
to snatch hi children from the degradation nnd
misery which he rntnil upon them. We need it to
