Messrs.- - Edit4r Th- attentive
and continual perusal of the journals
of this city, has convinced me that
very erroneous opinions are entertain

especially about the causes of the as

it is in relation to the latter event alone
that I now propose to communicate to
you the contents of two letters received

We find from the language of the pa.

that the decision is entirety unsaimac

wai not to be expected that it would
be satisfactory but we had hoped that
whatever mightbe the dectuoo.

trust still that auch will be the course
pursued by. the people of the State at

Admitting that the St. John is to
be excluded from the discription of

do not see that so reasonsoic a princi

controversy, as that of dividing the
