MESSRS t..nrr6as.— When I took my pen

of becoming/i seribbler
,for your paper, and

, :
'Sin reading his last,' I should feel that il
had/engaged in An inglorious business, in at
teMpting a reply, if, the author were my 1 . .
equal; but ias it is, I feel a confidence to pra
ceed, akin to that whith,a school=boy feels to ,
laugh, wherij his teacher does.
I entertain tone but) friendly feelings to
wards lir. Newton, andirnsidering his years
as compared With mine,and the positioa he oc
cupies in community, mould not willingly
treat hint With disrespect, or his opinion with
ridicule; and if I have done, or shXll do so,
I trust theri i i is sufficient occasion,. otherwise,
hope to l,e pardonedon the ground of honest
misappre.hOision: • .
His Pcisifion in relation to the .Superinten

admits ;that he hod seen no impractica

to . become a'eaudidlite for the office; :and
that he_did not decline it, nor raised an- ob

till after it was filled. 'lt is fur the people
to decide whether it is probable that he word
