When a person's character is assailed,
m apology for intruding upon the Pub
lic would be deemed superfluous. On
tty return from Petersburg, a few days
ago, I was surprised and mortified to
learn, that a report was in circulation
that I had run away, in consequence of
debt, which report I view as a vile as
persion; I have however returned, and
can s;ive my creditors every assurance
f speedy liquidation if not entire dis
charge. It is easy to propagate false
hood, but requires some ingenuity and
oresight to become an adept for were
despicable enough to indulge a wish
t defraud my creditors, there would be
ho necessity (if I understand the Act of
assembly) for absconding. 'As a de
fendant of respectable ancestry, I trust
I have inherited their principles of hon
c, and hope to die as I have lived,
honest man, in despite of the rancour
:irrt malignity of those vile traducers of
