MR. EntnoR:-ll your papei a short
ime since, a writer ttnder the signature
f "Old Saluda," published an nrtcle ta
eeplete with trite vulgarisms and stupid t
personalities. He dared not attempt a
refutation of the Message of Ex"Gov t
Hanmond--bt ironically styles him a I
Jemi-God. There is just as much sense I
mnd justice in this remark, as there would
be in my calling "Old Saluda" a deni
Devil and no more. It is tore tolerable
ao listen to a licentious and wonton esaay,
in which there is wit or reasons, justice or

In lieu of reel argument "Old Saluda"

He is personal altogether. I conceive
bis main purpose to he-to forestall public
)pinion against the rejoinder of '-Anti
Debt" to the series of articles now being
published in behalf the Bank.
Hence he makes the charge that this
writer and others whom he mentioned are
stock holders in the private Banks. This
charge is entircly gratuitous. For the
sake of argument, as well as to declare
what I believe to be true-1 deny the
charge. Let him prove the affirmative
let htn evett attempt it with any show of
reason, and he will Hind the task itmpossi
ble-because the charge is untrue. Were
hie able to prove it-still the argument
versus the Bank would remain untouched
Meet "Anti. Debt" by some eff'rt at
tubstantial argument. and :the the con
munity may believe that be has other
resources than those which enable him
merely to impeach the motives of this
writer-and to warn the- public against
trusting his statements.
I do not say that any argument which
"Auti Debt" bas, made or, will. make
against the Bank i irrefragable -and de.

But I do not pretenad at this time to judk.e

the illibseral and -nnjuast nttempt of " Old
