TO CORRESPONDENTS.

“ Curious.”- —To make reference to the private affairs of a law-abiding citizen in a public journal would be persecution, and no journal ought to open its columns to anything of the kind.

We have no wish to open a controversy on the subject of your letter—it is one that, given rope enough, will hang itself ; but doubless it will come to the surface in good time.
