TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l cannot allow to pass uneontradicted Mr Armstrong's flat denial of my account of what took plaoe between us. The whole affair, I repeat, arosa from his persistent demand for another subscription that I did not, and do not, see my way to give. It Hurely is for everyone to satisfy himself as to hie means, and not to give away what is due to others. In this connection I know persons who; when hard pressed, hand over what they certainly cannot afford. In sayiDg that I called on Mr Armstrong lor an explanation, I alluded to our meeting on the the street, and I now say again that he demanded a personal apology, and that I indignantly refused. Further, I have neither said nor done anything calling for apobgy in your columns, which Mr Arm' strong, in bis letter, says he suggested I should write, and that "he would get it published." I don't want either his advice or assistance, but simply that he will mind his own business, and leave me to mind mine, - Yours faithfully, CHARLES POOL.
