Sir, I am sorry to find that the New York tro
agent of a late Lonçlon edition of Cruden s
Concordance has put forth in a public ad- .
vertisement, that your edition of this work is
incorrect, and that his is a "correct edition." anc
This agent is hardly aware that the London
edition, which you followed in size, in type,
form of page, &c. was carefully collated with
other editions, and that not less than seven 110
thousand gross errors were corrected there
by in your edition. If with a knowledge of j
tins fact he has ventured upon such an alle
gation, it can only be to disparage your edi
tion in the American market, and to enden- sh
voi - to substitute what he misnames a "cor
feet edition." But the gentleman has over- its
shot the mark sadly in giving sucli an as
surance; for, upon a cursory examination on
ly of his " correct " London edition, I have
discovered more than two hundred impur
tant errorsm a small portion of the work, f
and this without reading by your edition, but
merely revising by the corrected copy which ff
was used by your stereotyper. It is there
fore fair to presume that a more accurate
examination would furnish many more er- us
ror9. At my leisure will make a further
examination, as I feel myself implicated in
the censure of the New York publisher.-*- to
You shall then be furnished with a "black c |
list" of the errors °f this boasted - correct
edition, which you may exhibit to whomso
ever you please; and perhaps it would not '
be amiss to get a certificate of the existence
of the errors I shall have to point out; in the
mean time, you have my permission to pub
lish this letter, if you think it will have the
effect of disabusing the public mind in regard »
to the unjust charge which has been brought,
against your valuable work, which, you mav !
he assured, is "the most correct edition of
CrTdTn'l Concordance ever published.'' 7

New YokSi j„ ne 24, 1833—It is under

subject of pledging the Tribe to the "great

Sachems are opposed to such a course,doubt
ing whether the magician is so sure of victory
as a Grand Sachem ought to be. Affairs in
Pennsylvania have not gone well of late. It
is well understood that a congressional caucus
to nominate a successor to General JacKson
will not do, for then the nomination would
very likely go the way of the Congressional
printing. y If Mr. Van Buren is to be norm

gan to beat and bang about, just as if lie had
been in New York. The result was that the
Pennsylvania editors and politicians got out
with tho management by which they
attempted tobe driven, and now it is veiy
doubtful whether they can even be led.
And if Mr. Van Buren cannot get 1 ennsyl
vania to go pretty cordially for a packed
Convention, why he may as welt hang up
his tomahawk. So you see the Sachems
here may well stop, smoke a long pipe and
look well, to the stars before they send their

convert the President s tour into an elec

There is something extraordinary in
the following editorial paragraph ; and
in we confess beyond our comprehension,

respectability and talent on both sides,

ssibly believe the statement.

is revolting to every feeling of justice,
and will of course canes the proper in
quiry, which we trust will result in pro
ving it to be without foundation.— N. I.
