Item Type:
W. McMaster, Jr. says: Will you oblige me by laying before your readers the following interesting correspondence; it requires no comment at my hands, as it speaks for itself in a way that cannot be misunderstood. The public will now know and appreciated the honesty of a man who endeavoured by a bribe of $150 to Mr. Jacques, and a handful of bills to his daughter, to fasten a charge on an opponent, whose conduct they cannot by honourable means impeach. It is but justice to this poor but honest man to say, that he rejected the proffered bribe with the utmost scorn.
