It seams "hard" for tho odltor of the

without remark or suirostion from any

ment roll, precisely at furnished to us;
and if they indict "fi0k injustice" on
nny ono, Mr. .Martin being responsible, is
not tho man to try tooraletho respons

that if Mr. Mnrtin's aiic'iiuentdid certain

The editor forgot, or purposely eanoialod
tbo fact, that .Messrs. Ualliday' lot 8, was
valued ut t-0,O0O because Messrs. H.,
after psying that sum for a limited free
hold, oxponded nearly or imito an qual
sum in inakin Improvemonts thereon
Tho 'Sun,' evidently Intendlne In mliln.,1

do not. Wo should havo made ditferonl

ing thi, il is but j iilico to Mr. Martin tj
say that we regard hi Judgment In such
matters n" good ai our own, and vastly
superior to that of the editor af tho 'Sun.'
Wo believe further that lie was actuated
by nn honeit desire to do his duty alike
to the individual concornod and to the
public. That ho would purposoly dis
criminate agnintt Motir. Halliday or in
