her of Russell Jarvis's address to the public,
concerning hi* late pm trier, Duff Green. It
consist* chiefly of a correspondence between
those men in regard to the projected dissolu
tion of their partnership, w hich we do nut con
ceive to be ol sufficient interest to be transfer
red t<» our columns. It se**ms that during their
controversy, Green proposed that the sum iu

referees, Mr Harni'ton til S. C. of Retrench

the event of their not acting before a defined
petiod. Judge White and Mr. Woodbury, two
Sfirdors ol the U. S should sit in judgment on

pose, the present Boston Collector, who has
beun brought belore the public by Col. Orn»*
on a charge of conspiring with Duff Green and
others for the Corrupt distribution cf the Fede
ral others in Boston. Green greatly prefer
red arbitration to a jury t* iaI ; alleging that
more confidence was to he placed hi the forme1
tribunal than in the “ uncertain verdid of a ju

know, Irom expm ience, is often dependent upon
the caprice ami prejudice of ignorant individ

with the American people ; but they seem id
bad odour with the Combination ; tin th* '
