The letter from We to Judge Ilenry.
embraced in the article, nd up.in wbicli
the assault iu based, carries on its face a
refutation of the . wloW elanth r. The
zealous wiitir felt, then-fore, the necessi
ty of sustaining his allegations by various
collateral assertions, andhich, perhaps,
requites souic notice at niyliands.

deciding wheiher the wiiier is tiife greater
tiar1 r fooU I incline to the former
concjtuion, but I will cite a few speci
mens troiu the article mi support, also, of
the rhore clutritabk opinion.
First, and-comprehensively however
the charge th it i am or ever have br en'
luterested for or with Geo. W. Sw pson
is wholly and absolutely false. I have
?io interest wbaiever, 1 any kind, in any
transaction with Swepson, n-r ever had.
TlKkt Swepson purchased from T D. Car
ter the Cranberry property is alo false.
Gen. II. F. ilo'i , P. J. Summer, and
E. N. llutthinfon purchased the property,
and Swepson -had an interest only by
smms private arrangement with them.
The price f r Carter's interest was not
S40.000, but $44, GOO, ai d for the remain
ing interests, extinguishment of hostile
claims,-&t, they paid, about SG4.000
Tlie charge th at I was associated with
Wuodfin as Carter's cotmeel is also un

Through the city that morning men witjf
ominous faces and red caps ruiht have
been seen standing before the wine shops,
and up in by-ways talking with the pen

murmuring throughout the city later il

Here there was a scaffold ai d a bench,
when? the girls sat, and Monseignenr was
tried and decieed to die at sunrise for
having defied the people. It was so de
creed, and as the piison stood in where
the cluteau and barricades were, they
tl teed him down l.e il,' . :..
muttered an epithet of abhorrence at the
infamv of h., ,n.,.A...,. i... ..i ...
and so Monseignenr the Marquis was left
witu only a tew hundreds of a guard, w ho
were placed at 8 o'clock in the evening to
wateh all night.
In the morning he was to die.
Early that night a horse rattled out on
the north ever yonder by the marshes
and from the way the horse's head was
turned and the way the dust rose, he waa
judged by the sentinel at the chateau to j
i.a.e gone on me road to 1'an.
1 uai nignt, ot course, mere was no re
joicing in the village; partly because
there was no bread, and partly because
there was no joy ; but there was restless
nee and excitement on account of what
was to take place at sunrise. The people
have been sometimes called bloody, Mon
sieur, but wc are not and I believe that if
it had been possible in the minds of the
people to have saved Mouseigneur the
Marquife, be would ha-e been saved, but
they, had settled it in their minds, and
there was no possibility.
The people also knew that after thev
had threatened to take Mooselgneur's life, !
when tha Iroopa came, u' they itxtely

would there would be a terrible r. tribo
.".. , ou alter be was drtd who was to
fay who hhd thrcateued this thing, and so
it nas to be done.
At 4 o'clock it wag daybreak ; at 5 sun
rise -about 3, Monseignenr, sitting lean
jug his back against a pillar of the qoay.
heard something fall into the water. He
listened ; there was some one talking. It
was well he thought they bad come to
muruer Inra in the night, and he rose op
to face them.
It Monsieur had been outside he would
have seen the caps of soldiers climbing up
over the quay, but iindde be saw nothing,
nntil presently a challenge, suddenly a
flash, a roar, and with loud cheers n body
id soldiers rose up out of boats and poured
over the quay.
There was a fight, the neoola tiinnrh
u was a desperate sally from the cbaiean,
a-d foughtWd to drive them back the
so.diers in the chateau thought it was .1
tum h atnongn the people, and nonred
out upon th.ni. Ah! but there was a
desperate fight, and many were killed,
iuos-y f the p.-ople, and when the, sun
rose, the quay was piled with slain, and
the soldiers were in possession of the town,
and hundreds of the people piisoners.
Monseignenr was safe. Count St. Mar

boat and soldiers, h-urd all and came.

"And.-'asked Monseigneur,wbow heard
