Ma. I:ITO.-Sir.. it-is knowr to yoirselC
as well as a large portion of the citizdtif tiiis
District, that a letter .was-exposed to, publi
inspection by M aj S..C. Scott during'the 'ses
sion of the last Court in this Distridt.-detailing
the, most infamous piece -of scandal in relation
to nayeelf that was ever 'inyented. .The lettet
allnded io pitrports to have eminared from the
pen of.Mr Hugh i-cudersoq, of Lincoln Color
ty,: Georgia. This Mr. Henderson. is an. unfor
tunate man, neither respon'sible in person nor
property. * The only m ty therqfire that I have
to repell )is fhul caluonnies,-is through the
pubic 'l(es.; and I thorafore ask .a suiail space
in your columns fit this purpose. Indiing
this, I feel that I 'am not only discharging a
duty to myself but to the comnmunity. I will
ommnence, and per haps mght end, by simply
pronouncing every word, tie and sentence in
this infanw!us letter, to be a pervision of truth.
Mir. Henaerson has found it nnuh easier t
mrake grave charges- than to find proof to sub
stantiate them, and, its a ixiiin of law, and,a
rule in society, all-men should be deemed inno
cent, unmil they are pioven to be guilty. I might
perhups.content tlyself under this general rule,
but the publicity giyenthis matter, the baseness
ofthe charge,and'the feeling that seems to
exist in the public .inind. appears to require
something more, , The only part of Mr. Hen
derson's letter that I daei worthy of notice, is
that in Which lie iar'gis'me with having darried
a young lady in my biggy for five or six miles
to Mr H~armon's. a near relative of the lady;
and at a.late hour of the night triade my way
to her bed room or chamber, for the purpose of
comitting virloce on her person; that she
gave the alacmtt. arronsed the faiily &c. (This
charge, if I aau correctly informed, is' so ex
pressed. and if nt it is so iu'plidd ) Now any
one profes-in, the-least discrininaiion of mind,
can perceive that this charge, in connection
with the circumstances, carries falsehood on

before tnight;'[vvas' pressed by Mr. H. to remaini

A bout the usual supper time it' was -annouunced

After supper was over.all hianda repaited to the

o'clock. I was comlducted by AIr. Ilaron to a
very well furnished bad roomt, retired and fell

fintdiing no seryanit, I was in the ac t of ret urning
to my room with tnme initenttiont of calling Mr.

when I htad arrived ntear the dodr at which I
had first entorecn. I' was atccosied by a grufi voice,
demtuanding to know who wa there; I discoyerd
that it was Mr. Himarmon, and, very promptly
informed him. Before I had-time to nmake anty

'1 he irned for the first time,' that a yosung lady
was sleeping in the room.' I desi'red againi to

great passion,.refuised to listent to. mue. About
this time, Mrs;. Hatu,ond was atoused as well
ats the youmg lady; umnd the latter, leattning the
canie of ditlenity very prbtuptly repelled the
insinnuatiutits, atnd assured those s*esent, that
