When a person's character is assailed,
an apology for intruding upon the Pub
lic would bo deemed superfluous. On
my 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 give my creditors every assurance
of speedy liquidation if not entire dis
charge. It is easy to propagate false
hood, but requires some ingenuity and
foresight to become an adept for were
I despicable enough to indulge a wish
to defraud my creditors, there would be
no necessity (if I understand the Act of
Assembly) for absconding. As a de
scendant of respectable ancestry, I trust
I have inherited their principles of hon
esty, and hope to die as 1 have, lived,
an honest man, in despite of the rancour
and malignity of those vile traducers of
