We said last week that we had heard that j citizens of this county had been fraudulently dealt with by city merchants, lhis thing had been made a common topic of conversa tion in this place, and we knew that the assertion had been made, in the mo>t posi tive terms, by citizens of the utmost re liability. t’onsidering it our duty, in our j bumble sphere, to watch over the interests of our hdlow-citizens and patrons, and hav ing been, though most unjustly, taunted with being “afraid t*> publish anything j against Alexandria lest we should lose bv ir." we thought it right to make known what we had heard. With regard to the pro priety of this course w e have not changed our opinion. The affair had already received all the publicity that common conversati w could give it, and must have become generally though less speedily known, without our agency. We have the highest respect for the 1 good people of Alexandria, and we deeply regret tiiat any part of our course should he offensive to them: hut we owe a duty in the first place to our own citizens, and we must he allowed to discharge it to the host of our ahiiitv, regardless of the consequences. We would greatly prefer that the gentle men who believe themselves t * have been victimized, in this instance, would take tin4 j responsibility, and make a public statement .*f the facts, but we cannot see that there is any moral obligation on our part to publish to the world their private affairs, without their permission. As to our resj e<*ted cotem |M»raries of the press, we are truly sorry t * incur their displeasure in a matter of this sort. They must permit us, however, to ex ercise the same privileges with regard to our own community which they do m rela tion to theirs, and to raise a note of warning when we have reason to believe that their rights and interests are endangered. \\ ho the delinquents in this ease are, and where they reside, we know no more than they do, hut w e do know that there are such per* n< to he found in all communities, and no sine man will be disposed to visit their sins upon the whole class to which they belong. — Pi^hnonf t M7//y. _ AI^I A31 AC.
