A REPLY TO "ONE OF THE POOR."

[TO THB EDITOR.] Sir, — To the man of sense It Is highly amusing to see In the columns of your valuable paper the childish utterances given vent, to by "One of the Poor" who aotually goes as far as to condemn himself In his own words regarding temperance probably we are laaking In our duty, and possibly we should be more If we more fully practised the preaobing of " One of the Poor." By his letter we should judge that he is one cf those individuals whom we often read of but seldom see, and so far as I can learn they have never yet started the world by their unlimited abilities. With regret I must say I have no more leisure time to spend on "One of the Poor" but trust these few lines will bring him to the platform of common sense, and In oonoluaion I would advise him to praotise more and preach less, and doubtless his name will be handed down to posterity as a living martyr to the unthoughtful people of Asbburton.— l am etc POOB, BUT SINSIBLB.
