We have said, that no communica-

bttt we did not expect, at so early a
date, to have our resolution tested;
we rejoice that it is so. The article,
received a few days ago, under the
signature of PALAFOX, isjustsuch a
one as we should object to the public-
ation on aapy terms-it is evidently
Smalignant, scurrilous, and cowardly-
and we feel indignant at the presump-
tion of 6the author in offering it to us
for publication., We, however, will

so faras we are concerned, shall go
unscathed from the cowardly attacks

If a man finds himself oppressed ou

his case before the public, let him

events, if the subject is of such a na-
ture as not necessarily to demand that
his name should be appended t, the

entrusted with it, as a guaranty that he
is honest in his statements, and is
willing, if neossary, p personally ,o as
