A correspondent in tho last "Danville

tegrity of John Fruit, Esq. and published
a statement of his accounts, as Treasurer of
Columbia county, for tho years 1832, 1834,
and 1835. 15y this exhibit of his transac
tions, Mr. Fruit is made a defaulter to the
amount 02,073 83; and from tho face of
the account, persons not acquainted with
the manner in which business of that de
nomination is conducted, would readily in
fer that he really 'owed that amount, and
retained it in 1 is own. hands. This, how
ever, is not Tim cash; and, as the promul
gallon of the statement is only intended to
affect his nomination as a candidate for
