OLSON. Editor Independent: I notice that you are quite sore about the al leged "poem' in thk World of March JM, and vainly endeavoring to locate its author. You are worried only because the rhyme is so appro priate ana contains some Historical truth, and, because I have never said any thing but the truth about you, you imagine I wrote it. Your con tinued scurriinty nas made that no toriously apparent to everybody. Hence you and your poetaster set your mongrel wits to work to berate my family in revenge for the "poem"' which I did not publish, write, dic tate or even suggest. But suppose I had. Could you thereby justify vour miserable series of doggerel which all now know was directed at me and mine? I admit that any ones public acts or utterances may be fit subjects for pub lic criticism, but I think that per sonal and domestic affairs are exempt. It seems that you and your "leading and most respected author" think differently. Therefore you cannot ob ject to a few gentle reminders from me. , I note your kind admonition-te pro vide a home for my family. t-That 1 have succeeded in doing so far regard less of your opposition and, while our home is not so elegant as some might wish,- it is still quite as cheerful as motherless children usually have and they are not yet without a protector who has sufficient spirit to defend them against malicious, public at tacks. 1 notice you refer to my children as "pigs" which you try to rhyme with "kids." Your choice of wor-ds discloses your brutality and may have been inspired by the conduct of vour own offspring. bo far none of my boys have been held to account for disordly conduct or crime. JNo officer has ever been called to prevent murderous assaults upon me or them by any of their num ber. 1 make no boasts for the future but should I ever be so disgraced 1 shall not attempt to divert attention by a cowardly attack upon the help less, innocent, unfortunate of my neighborhood. I hope if any of my sons live to become heads of families that I shall not be called out of night to drag recreant husbands away from the blandishments of the sable sirens and debauchery of Kuhntown. I know your experience will enable you to appreciate all this. A. S. Peacock. Rev. Gunekle preached his first ser mon at the M.
