SOITR GRAPES AND ERN= VERACITY,
Ma. EDITOR : You and the readers
of the Jountal have doubtless heard the
f.tory of the Fox and the Grapes, where
in it is related that the Fos; having
failed to obtain some . grapes which
bang beyond his reach, petulantly con-
kzratulatedhimself that they were no
thing but sour grapes after all. This
-fable is frequently suggested to the
wind when observing the course of
ocrtain individuals who often attempt
that which they cannot attain. The
Editor of the Patriot, (so called,) your
terrible opponent, is likely to subserve
one important purpose; (I should like
to know what other,) to wit : that of
keeping this fable fresh in the memory
of all its readers. •
You doubtless noticed in the Patriot
of Aug. :30th, its shamocratic editor at
tempted to palm oft a letter from War
rim to the Tioga Eagle, signed in that
paper J. E.," in which the said ;I. E.
.attempted to defend the position of ,
lli. 4 ler on the question of prohibi
ti,,,„ as though it were written by the
Grand Worthy Chief Templar, the
head of the Order of CoodTemplars
is Peausylvania. The editor states the
I , v(lded fart in relation to the all
-711 ,1,))11) of that letter, with an air of
t:ou tiph, as thotozh such sentiments
c‘r!ssed by the litzad of the Order,
skeo sufficient to put to silence all the
meat: of Bigler on that score.
