    bintingtion ournal.
The reader, of the Journal will remember
that after I had eutiured injury and insult at
the hands of this unprincipled official until en
durance bud become intolerable, I, last .Jana'
ary, entered upon a proper defence of my char
acter, and consequent exposure of his villainy.
Although -hardened in iniquity and dead to
ebame, my first article dispelled his dreams of
impunity in guilt; and quailing under the up
lifted lash, he next day issued a card demand
ing an investigation of his conduct, and,lesuit
like, feigning to desire it! Against this advice
of friend., who predicted what has since been
recited, I accepted his hypocritical challenge
on condition that the investigation should em
"all the charges I felt justified in milking
against his conduct ns post ter;' To this he
conserved in writing, and 11%41te of acceptance
is in my possession. I then drew'up three gem
oral charges embracing a number of particulars,
and sent a copy of them to Lewis by a reaper
table crtizen—whose name can be given if call
ed for--and immediately began to collect the
necessary testimony. In this, I found no diffi
culty, but readily obtained evidence to sustain,
folly and completely, each of my three charges.
At this stage of the case I notified one of my
members of the Committee who lives at some
distance, and was about to serve notice on Leicis
and announce, in the Journal, the time nod
place of meeting, when I discovered that a por
cine of my evidence was liable to technical
jectiorts, and might be rejected on strictly legal
grounds, it not having been taken in accord
ance with the particular forms of law in such
cases required. To obviate this difficulty it was
necessary to obtain Lewis' connect to the mode
of taking testimony; and fur this purpose I ad
dressed to him a respectful note, asking .4whe
thee he would agree to admit, as evidence, offi
cial letters from the Post office Department at
Washington, and the affidavits of witnesses li
ving out of the county of Huntingdon, faker
before as Alderman or Justice of the Pence."
This note, he, at first, peremptorily refused to
answer ; and on being applied to a second time,
and an answer insisted on, he again virtually
refused to accept this, the only possible mode of
taking testiniony in a trial of this kind where
there in no authority to compel the attention.,
of witnesses by legal process! This refusal is
couched in the following words, written by
Lewis on the 9th ult.:
“In the absence of the day of meeting being
named, I cannot say whether I could meet you
with the Nam kind of evidence.” •
In answer to this note I informed Lewis that
he might hare two, three, or four weeks "to
meet me with the same kind of evidence if he
desired it." To this he made no reply, and
here the matter rested len days. Lewis mean•
while discovering that all his artifices had fail•
ed to . conceal his true position, but served en•
thee to make transparent the sole object of his
card to the public —escape front merited expo•
pnwe. Finding himself toiled then fur, but Irr.
silo is expedients to baffle justice, as all exp,ri•
.need transwessorit are, he now tried another
'live more impudent than the first. On the 19th
cit., he sent me a common:cation by his friend,
.I.lex'e Port, saying at its close:
"I accept your propoeition (of the 9th ult.,)
of taking evidener buluu e Althrineu,.luetiers of
the Pence, ,te."
This looks like coining up to the work, rea.
'ler. But, what do you suppose Lewis wanted
me to prove by the evidence thus taken? My
charges, of course; the three general cliel•ges
presented to . him, in writing., when I accepted
his proposition to submit the matter to a Coin.
nilitee. Nay, verily. Not the three ctiiirges I
had promised to make good againit him. No•
thing like it. But he asked me to establish
nine other charges nearly all entirely different
front miss—or forfeit $l2O !! To establish
these charges, by such evidence as he was p!ea
sad to indicate, he agreed that testimony might
be taken before Aldermen and Justices of the
Peace) You will say "is this possible?" It is.
And incredible as it may seem to persons not
acquainted with Lewis, it is the unvarnished
truth—the document is question is in toy pos•
session, in Lewis' handwriting, and over his
signature I Let us look at this a moment.
Lee's rejects the only ineans of tatting testi•
monp to prove the charges I find offerekto
make good against him, and then attempts to
escape the consequences of this refusal by ask•l
ing um to establish three fold as many charges
of his own framing. What would be thought
of a criminal arraigned for trial on an indict
ment containing three counts, if he should re•
fuse to appear or admit competent witnesses,
but insist en writing hie.own accusation it: nine
counts t,. sit his own taste, and then demand
a trial? NI mild not such a culprit be acquit
ted of every charge on a just plea of insanity ?
Certainly he would. But this is precisely what
Lewis has done. Can lte set up a plea of insa
nity ? Not until our locetbee Courts shall rule
that moral insanity is a plea of innocency—"a
consummation devoutly to be wished by such
scoundrels as Lewis ; and one by no means un
likely in view of recant absurd, unrighteous and
infamous decieione of some of our high Judi
cial tribunals. But, however low may sink the
neural sense of locofoco courts, the locofoco par.
ty and its officials generally, thauk God, there is
still virtue in the mass of the people in every
community, and to their sense of right and love
of justice, I confidently appeal for a judgment
on the facts here presented to their considera
tion. Ido not, of course, expect locofoco par
tisans to stake an impartial &Idaho of this
rase. Alen who can knowing/y vote for the ex.

and lacerate the quivering flesh of woman, to
seduce his own diughters or sisters, and tear
their helpless infants, the fruits of his lust, from
their frantic embrace and sell them to the high.
net bidders ; such men, however venerable in
years and respectable in their private relations,
cannot be expected to hare a conscience in unit

ests. I do not claim their verdict. Let their
sympathies console, "aid end comfort" Lewis;
and as far as possible, cover up his rascality.

both out of the church and in it, requires this
unholy service and subserviency. They must
obey the power they serve or be kicked out of

But the honest mass of that corrupt and corrup
ting party will yet see the venality of their lea.
ders and aid in crushirg them beneath the
mighty hand of truth, abused confidence, in
jured, indignant patriotism.
But to resume. Lewis' communication of
the 19th ult—substituting his own charges for
mine—fully satisfied my mind, as it must con
vine° every candid mind, that Lewis was and is
determined either to change the issue between
us, or avoid it entirely. I resolved, however,
to make one more honest effort to hold him to
the investigation before a Committee as origi•
sally proposed by himself and accepted by me,
because 1 could not induce him to venture his
case and official character before a higher tri
bunal. For this purpose 1 addressed to him,
on the same day, the following respectful note:
HUNTINUDON, 31arch 19, 1857.
if, Wm. Lewis:
Your letter of today seems to be an attempt
to change the matter in controversy; and by
your introducing charges not specified in our
preliminary correspondence, and requiring me
to establish all of them, looks like evading the
true issue. In answer to my note of the 2•tth
of January, 1857, you any, "name your charges
nod I will undoubtedly accept." Accordingly
I named the charges in my note of the 2d Feb.
runry, and have been endeavoring to make pre.
partition to establish these charges; and simply
wanted you to say whether affidavits taken on
notice as proposed, and Department Letters
should he evidence on these charges Please
answen Respectfully, &c.,
This note he returned with a virtual refusal
written on the margin and closing with these
gentlemanly words :
* * * But as you arc a tol and can't dance,
it is throwing away time in answering your in
sane communications. Wu. Lewis.
With this delectable specimen of his style
and temper, and a little squib having no h•nr•
ing on the questior., our private correspondence
closed ; and after a brief notice of the charges
1 did offer to establish before the committee,
our public correspondence will be closed also,
at' least on my part, unless he shall afford no
the opportunity of proving his official miscon
duct before a court and jury. This I hold my.
self prepared to do at any time, and lie knows if.
My origival charges, three in number, were,
as altendy stated, presented to Lewis, in writ•
fag, at an early stage of this controversy. They
are general charges, the first and sewed each
susceptable of proof by a number of special
facts, each conclusive in itself. The first re.
bites to his euppressing, or attetnpt ing to sup.
press newspapers passing through the mails.—
The truth of this charge is clearly established
by his order on the Postmaster at Coffee Rana ;
mid as every body knows it to be true,' Lewis
• has ceased to deny it.
My third charge declares that Wm. Lewis,
by a false representation of facts in the cese,
e xtorted I'min me a fine of five dollars in a
prosecution before Esquire Snare. Fell proof
of the main facts adds charge are in cry pos.
session. Dui...this prosecution was Lt pre..
of, and not gjliciul net of Lewis, it is of cots
I parutively little consequence. It is not the pri•
vale character of Wm. Lewis, but his condoct
as postmaster. ns the servant and tool of u rut•
ten party, that I felt bound, and still feel bound
us the conductor of a newspaper, to hold up to
public contlemation.
My second charge—in some respects the most
scrim of the three—is in the following words:
I charge you (Wet. Lewis,) with demanding
unlawful postage ou books and other mail mat
t. left at your office for delivery, and of enter.
Ong payment for the same.
This charge I here reiterate with all the 0111.
phasic that conscious truth can inspire ; and
stake my character and my property on my
ability to prove it in a court of justice whenever
called on •to do so. Can any sane nuut , friend
or foe, think me such a fool as to invoke, hi
this unqualified manlier, the pains and penal.
ties of a prosecution it' I did not knew beyond
the. possibility of mistake, the entire, absolute
truth on which my case is Jimmied? Cain any
man, possessing ordinary self•respect, suppose
fir a moment, that Leads is so debased that he
would spare the scorpion lash of the law if he
did not fear its rebound upon himself'? If COI,
Beim guilt did nut make him crouch and cow.
er in helpless terror? Nay, can even the ortho.
don gentlemen who have been slyly endeavor
ing to bolster up Lewis' official reputation, con.
template the present aspect of the case without
some slight ruffling of their pious complacency?
Let every man's reason, common MIRO and
conscience answer to his own heart.

Messas. EDITORS :
About a year ago my attention was directed
to the growing popularity of Woreestee's Die.
tionuries. At first I attributed their rapid rise
iu the public lavor to the enterprise and energy I
of the present publishers, favored by the known
predilection of educationists generally for chan
ging school books, as well SS the methods of us• iearGraliam's Magazine for May in the best
ing them. I had long regarded Webster's Die I number we have seen for some time. The en.
tionary as the standard of accuracy, his Ortho• I gravings in this book arc worth three times the
graphy and Orthoepy as almost universally re. price of subscription ; and it you don't believe
ceived by scholars in the United States. No j it, subscribe for it and judge for yourselves.
ordinary evidence could have changed my opi' ;
nion on that point, or induced me to investigate I
the claims of any rival work. But soon after
the time above referred to, evidence fell into my ;
hands which no reasonable mind could resist.
I found that Bancroft, Prescott, Everett, Quin- I
cy and Washington Irving; lion. John McLean,
Bishop Potter, Professor Hart, of the Philad'a.
High School, and a hoot of leading literary men
and Teachers in the different States, have adop.
ted Worcester's Dictionary as their standard,
and have voluntarily and strongly recent tuend•
ed it to the public! As nothing short blind
prejudice could reject such testimony, I proof'.
rod copies of Worcester and by a patient and
careful comparison with corresponding copies
of Webster, Walker and Cobb, for many years
used in my school, fully satisfied myself of the
superiority of Ileorceskr over any uric of the
others ; and Unit he combines everything vales
ble in all of them, while he avoids some of the
inconsistencies of each. His vocabulary is
more eitensiv6, his definitions equally satistao:
tory, and his orthography more conformed to
present good usage, 0. either Cobb's or if
hr's. His system of notation is equally situ.
Ipie, and more accurate than Webster's, being
founded *on a complete analysis of the 000 ci
i sounds, as every one versed in phonetics will
see at a glance. As one of the principal noes
of a Dictionary in the schaul.rootp is to deter
mine the proper pronunciation of words, a cor
rect system ta notation is of much imp. tance.
On the subject of Orthography I will not pre•
tend to say thatt if Orcester is always right said
Webster wrong when they dater. None but
those who have devoted their lives to the study
of our language can be considered competent,
' in all cases, to decide between theta ; and pro.
liably even such umpires would, in some cases,
• differ as widely as the authors we are consider.
• lug. Bat it requires no great eruilltion to dia•
cover that Worcester's rules and principles of
Orthography are more consistent, .d lose con
fused and contradictory than IVebster's. Of this
%fly intelligent teacher, or other petson tolert,
bly acquainted with the subject of Orthography
eau be fully assured by a very limited exami
nation and comparison of the two authors. The
cause of this consistency in the one case and
confusion in the others is, I think, very obvi
ous. Worcester has evidently taken the lan-
I as Ito 'Mind it used by the best writers in
England and America, and adapted his rules
to that usage. Hence his principles and prae
t/co are consistent .d natural. Whereas
Webse er has, as we all kn., attempted to re
form our Orthography, Be has laid down new
rules which sustain bin innovations on certain
words or classes of words. But his application
of these rules is limited, and his practice fre
quently comes in glaring conflict with his prin.
ciples. This inconsistency his more eandia ad
mirers will admit, and many of them will pro
bably attribute it to the inherent imperfections
of our language, as I confess I did until I ex
amined Worcester. Whether the perusal of
this work will change other minds as it has
mine, I certainly cannot say. I can only speak
for myself and ask others to examine for them
selves. lan now thurouchly convinced that a
consistent system of the Orthography .d Or
thoepy of our language as it is, is preferable to
La partial change which iuvolves contradiction
and confusion. Acting on this conviction, I
supplied my classes with two dozen and a half
of Worcester and excluded all other Dictiona
ries. We have been using the n e w work since

Dear Sir t Having become prematurely quite
gray, I was induced, some six weeks since, to
make a trial of your Restorative. I have used
l ess than two bottles, but the gray bairn have all
disappeared ; and although my hair has not yet
fully attained its original color, yet the process
of change is gradually going on, and 1 uni in
groat hopes that in a short time my hair will be
as dark as formerly. I hove also been nisch
gratified at the healthy moisture and vigor of the
hair, which before was harsh and dry; and it has
ceased to come out as Mrmerly.
Respectfully yours,
