valuable for the answer of such an
article us yours, which alternates
between personal abuse and hyp
ocritical advice, lb rough which one
eui soe the poisonous adder ready
; to ?let ruy it- victim.
The reason I did not put in the
whole of ? >ur Monthly's paragraph,
if you hud had even a school-boy's
logic, yoll WOllld liave seen, WHS
because I uns proving Mr Lelteh's

The article was written limier tho
heading of tho correspondent's of
llce, and I Judged il a mistake of
prejudgment, ami not ns a hypocrit
ical deceiver who would ruin the
character ol'our young men, and
condemn all who defend thomas
criminals of t he deep? si die.
I have ho answer lo your advil'?
to "Willie," except that I would
entreal yon, for his sake, for your
sake, for Justice's take, don't frame
the buy after your pattern.
No,'"Jim" don'l be afraid justice
will praise you when even Satan
your master ls afraid of you-, fur,
poor fellow, you are in tho condi

"Foul as it i-, hell it <i If Ls dollied

Now, in summing up, for ii is a
