A letter from Columbus, dated 29th

York, who was reported to have been
killed by the Creek Indians, between
Montgomery and Columbus, escaped
with his life, and had arrived at Tus
kegccft? after having wandered about
the nation four or five days.
"Gov. Clay is at Montgomery, very
confined to his room. 200 men
finder the command of Gen. Patterson,
were on the eve of leaving Montgome

in the field about 3000 men, in the course
of this week. Col. J. B. Hogan is with

THE SLAVERER.
Against slander tlpre is no defence.
Hell cannot boast so foul, nor man de
plore so fell a foe. Itstabs with a sword
—with a nod—with a shrug—with a
look—with ffcsmile. It is the pestilence
walking in ||rkness—spreading conta

the poisoned arrow, whose wound is
incurable it is the mortal sting of the
deadly adder—murder its employment,
innocence its prey, and ruin its sport.
The man who brenks into my dwell
ing, or meets me on the public road,
and robs me of my property, docs me
an injury. He stops me on the way
to wealth, strips me of my hard earn
ed savings, involves me in difficulty.
But the man who circulates false re
ports concerning my character—who
exposes every act of my life which can
be represented to my disadvantage—
who goes first to this, then to that neigh
bor, tells them he is very tender of rny
reputation, enjoins the strictest secrecy,
and then fills their ears with hearsays
and rumors, and what is worse, leaves
them to dwell upon the hints and sug
gestions of their oy$8'busy imagination
—the man who in this way "filches

the slanderer confess his crime, the blot

Give me this, and I can face the

frowns of a world, the finger of scorn,
and the hiss of contempt, are more than
man can endure.
Yet, dear as reputation is, "and in
my soul's just estimation prized above

too sacred for the slanderer to tarnish and
