into the workinirs of the Canal system,

in darkness and which can not bear the

Mit' t Vint U ia it avsts-rn nf favoritism and

."particular jntrigue'ond speculation, and
.fraud and swindling and universal cur

Would' not reason, whenever she ha

it'must be considered as one ' instance

Such a man will have no .doubt, that
corru .ition must have grown to an e-
uormous size and most have become
systematic, before such an open bare
faced, prostitute instance of it, could
have taken place. In the commence
ment ol a system ot crime, men ore
shamefaced and bashful, it is only after
it has become matured and grown
strong that men become bold and un
blushing in wickedness! Oh, if the
honest and confiding people of Monroe,
could but see to what use their money
is applied, and what f; ilse-hearted, frau
dulent,' cozening knaves, it fattens and
enriches, they would cull for an end of
tliis sytem of legalized plunder. Let
them rest assured that as tyrants of
old prevailed by force, so speculators
at present prevail by fraud, '
