We received a list of live subscrib

friend who sent the list, remarking
in his letter:
The courteous manner In which

ing many friends for your paper.
We do not ohiect to argument de
signed to convince us of tho error of
our ways, we rather court it; because
we believe we are right and do not
fear the force of any discussion. But
our numbers are rcfiicctablc enough
to entitle us to courteous treatment,
and any ill mannered scribe that
assails us with abuse- will find ids

We could multiply these pleasant
sayings, but the above are enough

Much has been written of this
