praisers, without interfering with that which properly belongs to others, and to avoid an unfair prejudgment of what is called the Calcasieu log war, I have refrained refrained from expressing any opinion at this time on tbe merits of the case. . m As an imputation, however, seems to be cast npon the appraiser- appraiser- in th , eles published by you, I deem it my duty to put tne pnblio in possession of the entire, entire, facte connected with this matter, and v shall do so on my return to Mew Orleans, after the completion of ray labors labors in this parish. In the meantime permit me to state that the article on Calcasieu affairs, which appeared ia your journal of the 11th insU, headed The Calcasieu Layout." is so gross a misrepresentation of the facts that I am compelled to believe, that, though published published as an editorial. It-is It-is It-is nothing more than a communication from some evil disposed person, dishonestly engaged in the nefarious pursuit of-4nnnholv of-4nnnholv of-4nnnholv purpose. , I cannot understand what can have induced a paper of your presumed respectability respectability to publish such idle and unfounded unfounded statements. Between now and the time that a full disclosure of all the facts connected with this matter shall appear, appear, suffice it.to say, that the statement mane Dy your mendaoions informant, who Is evidently too cowardly to affix his signature thereto, and published under y oo r editorial sanction,consistsof a tissue pf unmitigated aad malicious falsehood from beginning to end.
