Truly the life of a Greenback editor has some Bright spots upon its horizon. It is an old saying that the heart can Best be reached through oho stomach and in this Case the adage is More than verified. Some of Tho people Here seem disappointed because the review and Post do not at once lock horns and commence a warfare of extermination. So far As we Are concerned we never commence hostilities and much prefer not to engage in them. Thus far or. Mead Lias acted the gentleman with us and to have no Jarrol with him. In Tho past we have said All to wanted to Green bachism and May have More to say in Tho future on general principles but that has nothing to do she establishment of a Greenback paper Here. If Bro.
