I hen, it appears, Il wes only a single fact, and
uot jiicU in which we were so 41 singularly

can only noic say, that we may have labored
under some misapprehension. It the handbill
to which we referred was nol enclosed in the
Enquirer, we certainly did so ; bui it is not hj
this moment in our power to ascertain vvlieth*

learn the fad, we shall make it known ; tor, if
the Enquirer be guiltless in this matter, ive shall

(IT A gentlemtn remarked, a few day ago,
dial he was certain, when the Enquirer announ
ced its Intentioa of breaking in upon (he regu
lar order of Dsbate in Convention, publishing
Speeches that were delivered last before those
to which they were replies, that it was about to
perpetrate some sneaking trick. It was even
go. The very nett Enquirer contained Mr.
Randolph's Speech, which preten Is to be n re
ply to Mr. Jelinsott, while Mr. I s speech m
withheld !

Dinner to Mr. Barbour. -Wo have not room

late Minister to England hy the citizens of Rich

Mr. Barbour’s neat address, returning thanks
for his friendly and cordial reception by ids old

Mr. Kilchie was not present at the dinner — j
The idea of a Table Orator is loo much for j
him. We expect to hear, very soon, that Coll.
Gibbon and Preston, the Collector and Poll- i
uiRsier of Richmond, have received their ‘walk

macy in honoring an old friend who is under
the ban of tha administration.
