One of the editors of the Telegraph sir Ince i last addressed you your paper has issued and in it i see a letter of n. to h. Lasselle or. Reiterating the miserable and disproved charge about the $66,000 drafts and $10,000 fraud. Or. Lasselle shall be answered in another article the documents i quoted in my former letter and the certificate of the Riser Grover do most certainly disprove them and show them to be false. These documents published with and a part of the acts of Congress no Man can gainsay or plead ignorance of. Grower s statement in them and those he now makes Are As opposite As Day and night and he is presented a the accuser and material then there Waal no Ihirg to question the fairness of the messes. Ewings in the transaction but says he i am of opinion thai their draft for 10,801 dolls should be paid quot but now Forsooth he says we have we fitted quot High handed fraud quot in the same astir. Where is he to be believed he then a tracked the falsehoods he had written to the War now re asserts them. But even had this Man s certificate not contradicted his present letter his present statements when examined will be found destitute of substance that will for a moment stand the test of scrutiny. He Grover f is that he always gave it As his quot opinion quot that the messes. Ii Inga did defraud the Ottaw Attavio indians it the treaty of 1832, to the amount of ten to Twenty thousand dollars because he says we had not goods enough there to invoice to the amount of 50,000 . His import ant opinion by which we Are to be condemned is wholly argumentative and a conclusion from premises to which he is and was a stranger to did not and does not know the amount of goods we then had but we aver that we had Between 38 and 42,000 doll air Worth at first Cost on the ground including those of a. H. Ewing and that at the prices other merchants were then and there Selling goods for that they would have invoiced Froni 6o 10 70,000 dollars. Such is the opinion of the Young gentlemen who were then our Clor Sand assistants Arllof whom i have conversed with and As to the reference made to them by Grover and Lasselle they authorise me to say that they and others cannot substantiate the falsehood they have been publishing by their testimony. For amount of Eastern purchases see Noia Bene a Ain his Fox has diminished in size at the second deep River for he now tells Lasselle 50,000 dollars amount of Sdralis instead of ,000�?another contradiction and falsehood and Boih disproved by the documents referred to where they appear to be Only 45.200 dollars. In his second and third paragraphs he says we had Large stocks of goods left at fort Wayne and Logansport this is not True we had but Small ones and that we furnished 25 Bills this is not True we were interested in Only 13 see schedule of Bills in my former letter and for once he ventures to charge positively by saying that As to quot Ono Bill of the i quot Venty five Bill s filled by the messes ewings the government was charged with a sixty Dollar Spanish Saddle and a Large amount of Rifle guns quot As Given out by us. Quot the above named invoice amounted to 2,500 dollars quot this is another falsehood there being no such articles in that Bill and by referring to the documents such articles will be found charged in a Bill of 7000 Dolk page4ll inspectors d. E. Hunt Saml. Hanna c. Carter. The messes. Ewings and other traders and Frontier Ivien were solicited by the commissioners to assist in making a that treaty with their influence and Means with which request they or most of them complied. Fine Spanish and other saddles and Fine Rifle guns were specially promised to chiefs and head men and were delivered to them in such a manner As those men had promised and in a Way that would note Dite the jealousy of the other indians otherwise it. Might have Cost those who received them their lives. Those articles Grover refer ? to i presume were disposed of in that manner. This course was in accordance with Indian usage and customs nor did the quot messes. Ewing fail to fulfil their pledges to their Indian friends nor will they Ever be found shrinking from their full share of responsibility As merchants and traders in transactions which took place at a time when the interest of their country was promoted and Tho country mostly purchased from the Banks of the eel River to the shores of Lake Michigan. At this time Grover instead of watching Over the interest of the indians and promoting the interest of the government .13 was his duty As a sub agent was speculating and cheating them by purchasing All the saddlery on the ground of the merchants at 50 per it. On Cost and Selling to the commissioners for the poor indians not Only at a second profit but at outrageous prices having thus monopolized and controlled that article All on the ground having been promised. This rascally service he offset ted before arbitrators and insisted on it against three years honest labor of his partner in the saddling business. Grover makes charges against us and i have answered them i Trust substantially and now ask the equal right of stating a few matters in relation to his conduct and wonderful career in in Dian affairs.1st. His conduct while sub agent was so grossly corrupt that a petition signed by a Large number of the first citizens of the country with heavy charges of corruption was sent to the War department for his removal. He has not yet answered those charges although furnished with copy and by his silence admitted their truth. 2d. 1 am informed that after the treaty of 1832, he was seen in the Possession of a Box of Indian goods at Logansport and in the opinion of my informant they came from that treaty ground and were fraudulently retained to his own use. 3d. He procured at the treaty ground a Boston wrapper Worth 25 dollars upon an order he presented with the name of a certain individual to it queer . A a.

Yes 1 do but i cannot humor All your caprices the debt of England. The following amusing calculation a from a late London paper. It should cause the bosom of every american to swell with Pride at the contrast Between England and the United states. While the former is burdened by a an enormous debt the latter has a surplus Revenue of 40,000,0000 in the Public Treasury.

Guy s bed trunk filled with Fine cloth and other goods believed to be a part of those taken there to be distributed to the indians and afterwards sent to Logansport that he there paid his own and his company s Bill the amount of 50 or 100 dollars with Indian blankets.6. 1 am further informed that at the time we were about to deliver our last goods in january 1683, Grover came to our store enquired if there were any Fine cloths intimated that he wished some to be set aside and secreted for him. Oom Plait having been made to general marshal was not permitted to take any. And hence he oppo Sion to the draft of the messes.

Tired my dear is Tea ready a it will be in a i Sally came with the Tea urn and Toast. Henry Hartwell sat on one Side of the table. His wife sat opposite. Three weeks after mar Page with a pretty wife is what dont happen every Day and both husband and wife made the most of it. Their Mutual endearments softened and sweetened the bitter cup of life very much As their sugar and Cream added to the palatability of their Hyson. My dear is your Tea agreeable excellent my love will you take another piece of Toast my dear a very Little my love if you please this was All Well enough. Young married people have an undoubted right to make fools of themselves if they please and the fact of their being Young married couples presupposes the fact that they have lost their wits. Julia and Henry Henry and Julia or in other words or. And mrs. Heartwell were a Happy couple. Not a single storm had clouded their con nubian horizon they acted in its perfection the Short and laughable farce of matrimonial Felicity. Henry Heartwell sat on the sofa with his Oving Bride beside Hiroy what a subject for a Painter Harry my love said the fascinating wife i never knew happiness till now a if my love can make you Happy you must e the happiest of women so i am my Henry and i am sure Yon do Ove me i should be wretched if i could think otherwise.

And yet there is no one thing not even steamboats that keep up with them in the March of movement. They Are cons trently improving size appearance and Talent but As to Rice the Only improvement there is upon the leaper system and goes to Benefit the read we have seen a Man charge two and a half dollars for an article the construction of which probably occupied some Bungler half a Day and at the same moment grumbled at a Printer s charge of two dollars for a year s Paer which when bound up would make a to ume of news of incident and of moral interesting and instructive miscellany that no it bookseller would dispose of for less than then times the River times.
