The Resident Magistrate . has satisfied himself from close examination that the letter was sent to him by a rival tradesman, and he has accordingly handed it to the solicitors of the parties accused, to take such steps against the writer as they may think fit. This is by no means the first instance that has come under our notice of an attempt to blacken a neighbor's character by this contemptible practice of anonymous letter writing, and we shall be very glad to hear that the author has been discovered.
