Whittemore, the cadet peddler,

phatic denial of every accusation pre
ferred against him. Ho then pro
coeded to makea bitten attack upon the
proprietors of '/%c News and Con
ricr, in which ho read certain letters
purporting to bo from Messrs.
Riordan and Dawson, relative to
the public printing and certain oth
er matters, by which ho endeavored
to connect them with the corrupt
practices of the ring. The News and
Courier promptly repelled the
charges, and Captain ).awsvon has
toned to Columbia to demand an in
vestigation. He makes a good do
fence. We trust the public will
defer judgment until further devel
opments are made. The News and
Courier has been of immense ser
vice in overthrowing corruption, and
its reputation should not be in the
hands of every baffled Radical ring
thief. While a number of the best
people of the State oppose, The News
and Uourier, it is well known that
all tho Radical thieves, big and little,
denounce it b'tterly. Whittemore is
a sweet-scented scoundrel to bo pro
forring charges against anybody.
We predict that he will soon be in
