two reason: First, h hs found it the
most convenient thing in the world to use,
at lha present juncture, in hi laborious

this State, that be might prop up, with
the fragments, a tottering, rotten and
unwieldy federal, executive. Secondly,
it ha aiT if. led an opportunity to ent a
little amotheied malignity against certain

uncovered and exposed bis sin against
veracity, so much lo his heart content.

Nothing, certainly, is known of the
