our columns to ell who conceive them

In this communication we are directly
charged with being concerned in a "plot"
against neighbor Bosbyshelt, having for
its ultimate object collision and division
among the members of the Dinitocratic
family! This is , a serious charge; mid
should be seriously. met and answered.
We, therefore, in the first place, plead
"not guilty;" and; in the second place, call
for the proofs, node having yet beeh ex

ever, we will observe, that our remarks
were predicated upon an extract from the
published proceedings of the Senate of
'Pennsylvania, and that we had ll ' clear
right to attach fiat three and credit to the ,
record until the same was proved to be
false. The' only proof yet adduced of the
