Mills In the above article, and can, If re
quired, produce tbe testimony of respected
citizens, both Catholics and non-Calbolics,
who were present on tho occasion referred
to, that I did not allude in the remotest de-
. to tho marriaee ceremony or creed of
any dissenting brethren of any denomina
tion whatever. It is to me matter of ex
ceeding regret that I should be obliged to
notice in tbe public press tbe vagaries of
man whose unenviable reputation is to well
known In this community, but when he
avails bimtsll of the weight of an influential
newspaper to point the arrow of his shame-
leu venom, I feel that in justice to tbe ta

ber, it is my duty to oontradiot and expose
to the publls this vile calumny and Itt eu
ttaor. Before eoncludlof. I would oall tbe
attention of a eaodld public to judge of tbe
character of a man who wat not present in
person to take dowa my exact words on the
occasion referred to, and did not even offer
to correct or modify a statement which, at
best, he received from a third person. I
ask if Intolerance and bigotry could do
more, and does it not clearly show that tbe
