fig — Ever since the dirty sheet now ow
ned by the Nasher was first called ..ame
rican," it has been a most vile and abu
dive concern, except for a few months im
mediately before it came under its present
ownership. With this exception of a short
period of comparative decency, it has at all
times heaped upon. me the coarsest and
foulest abuse and falsehood. Even when
owned by those pious gentleman (R) who
gave it birth, its columns were open to ev.
ery low blackguard whose fiendish pro
pensities led him to hate every one not as
depraved as himself. 1 have been a spe
cial target for the vulgar assoc!ates of the
present owner. They have heaped upon
we all the vulgar and profane slang phra
ses which form the staple of their conver
sation in their drunken, midnight orgies ;
and they hove repeated over and over
again, the most enormous and wicked
LIES concerning my private character.
The readers of the Journal will bear me
witness that I have seldom noticed their
scurrility. To this general forbearance
and silence I was prompted by my own
feelings of respect no less than by the ad
vice of friends. Only occasionally have I
noticed some of the disgraceful acts of
their scandalous lives, but in no instance
have I answered their gross falsehoods
with anything but truth. Nor would I
now take any notioe of the foul article in
the last American, only to tell the mull
cious scoundrel who wrote it, that he and
his whole base clan of calumniators can
nut scare me into silence. lam as able to
protect my person from violence as most
men; Ind if the cowardly ruffian who has
threatened violence, is at all mindful of his
own hide he will take back that threat in
stead of attempting to ex cute it, and bear,
as best he can, the indirect utterance of
facts, well known and plainly spoken at
least by persons of his own class.
