THE principal charges alledged against
the persons in our publication oi the
25th u!t. in their vindication they do not

from our scales the balance weight; all we
have asserted will be substantiated when the

To the Public.
Apublicationof Butts and Cawood hav
ing appeared in the news papers of this
fdace, charging Robert Hume, David Smed
ey, and the subscriber with an act, which if
true, would justly subject us to public cen
sure, a contradiction of the charge may not
in the estimation of those who are strangers
be satisfactory, unless accompanied by some
facts which 1 trust will entirely exculpate
those who have been stigmatized by them.—
It had been reported to ine that some person1*,
who have since given evidence before the
mayor, bad ascertained some months since
that a pair of scales belonging to Butts and
Cawood did not balance ny a very material
difference, and that another person, who has
never been examined before the mayor, had
a Iso ascertained the same fact, and bad seen
persons in the employ of Butts and Cawood
weighing and delivering plaister without any
balance to make the scales just.
These «ircums»anres induced me, on the
evening of the 17th inst. to accompany other
gentlemen to the scales, which were not 20
yards from my premises, where J stood and :
w itnessed the difference of more than 60 1
pounds in the weight of the two dishes, as
represented by the the testimony delivered
before the Mayor, and alluded to in the pub
lication of H. Hume.—No injury whatever
was done to the scales. The public will
decide if standing in a public street or alley,
and witnessing facts proved before the pro
per tribunal, he criminal. It may not be a
miss to add, that in w eighing a ton of plais
ter by those scales, without balancing them,
would produce about an eighth of a ton pro
fit. 1 have delayed this statement from an
expectation that Butts & 6awood would
make such a public recantation as they were
injustice and truth bound to make.

THIS indRpensable implement in hus
bandry is at length perfected. Jethro
Wood, a practical Fanner, in Cayuga cy.
st.iteofN York, alter many years attention
to the subject, has overcome all prejudice.—
His Cast Iron Plough, already patented in
England, in France, in Russia, and in the
U. Slates, where it will supersede all others,
is now offered the public with improvements,
warranted to perform all the various ope
rations of ploughing with less expense and
tar less fatigue to the team, than any other
plough—the land side, mould hoard and
shar* being all of cast metal tempered so as
tv resist friction much louger than wrought
iron laid with steel. The shares being cast
in moulds exactly fitted, by taking'several
with each Plough, not only avoids the ex
pense, hut the delay so often allending re
pair. Orders for the above Ploughs, Shares,
