in the Eialeigh Em of the 7tli inst
'A general impression prevails
that because the' Democracy have
full swiay here, all is right. It is
quite otherwise, and people begin to

rumors in regard to the tax returns

Diirtv and wishes to create the im-
Dio.-ii in thnt there is a collusion of

is a slajnder.
