iln. Editor: I have seen a hand-bill going the
rounds this morning, in which there is a great deal said
about the different "candidates for Congress," written
over the iiarne of "One of the Old Settlers."' I fiud in
that communication that the "Old Settlor," if an old
settler he behas stated that "Major Holmtn, as clerk
of the District Court, received a large amount of money
at the last ldr.n of .said court, belonging to the county
treasury, which has not been accounted fur." I feel
myself .bound, as tho Deputy Clerk of thit court, to
state. that the,. ,:01d Settler" is laboritig under a mis-
talk as I will make appear, if the "Old Settler" will
make k:iown hi true name, and call at the Clerk's
office: the records of the court are open to inspection,
auJ Will prove that tho assertions of the "Old Settler"
in relation to the District Court Clerk's office, and mo-
neyirecieved, are false.

' For 'the Telegraph.
"Mr. Editor: Itls exceedingly unpleasant to he com-
pelled from time to time to obtrude oneVself upon the
public attention, and I would gladly avoid doing so;
but I believe, those who have observed tho pending can-
"va3s for the important offices of the republic, will have
.remarked, that.no one candidate has been more closely
scrutinize I or more falsely vililied than myself. This
however, I do not object to, for it is an old error, and a
misfortune, that during a canvass for public office, po-
'litical friends aret prone to extol their favorites too
highly, and enemies are still more zealously addicted
to employ every species of detraction that a licentious
jingenuity cansuggest. I do not court disquisition with
-any one, and would especially eschew it with the igno-
rant, and perverse. Bat even this cannot always be
-avoided without sufferring great injustice; for the ig-
norant are usually positive; and their b'unt malignity
moma times passes -for an honest candor.
The communication in your last paper, over the-signature
ofThos. F. McKinney, contained several state-
.menls relative tojnyself that are egregiously incorrect.
.1 shall abstain from any interpretation of the motives
that have prompted 'that person -to this volunteer en-
listment in the strife' of politics, and confine myself to
-an cxnHcattot-filieyacfa in -the matter charged.
ijzrSSf. MgJumey, speaking of the "Opinion" on the
sale of four hundred leagues of land to Mr. Samuel M.
Williams and others which was recently republished
in the Telegraph, says
"Col. Triplett induced president Burnett to write
that opinion and give to hiratouder to use in the United
-Slates, to aid in selling Ins land scrip, dec." He pre-
viously assertc, in the same paragraph and in reference
to the same matter, "Fwas on ihaY&ubjecl well inform-
Now the simple truth Is, that "opiuioa" was written
"in the fill of 18 J5, long before I had ever seen or heard
,of CjirTripIctL The principal pirtofit was written
in the moath of September of that year, immediately af-
ter I received the iBrazoria newspaper containing the
"Address" of Air. Samuel M. Williams to ih people of
Texas, in which he made an awkward and rcrr flimsay
effjrt to justify that voracious speculation. I wrote it
at home, at rajQivo, retired residence, and without ths
counsel, inducement, or privity of any o;e whatsoever.
My ipoJivfiTor writing it was' to expose to the:people
STTexas the tremdndous speculations by which the
uii'dlic domain was fist passing from them and their
.heirs, into the hands of a few individuals, whose in-
trigues were operating upon public functionaries that
were notoriously corrupt, and whose covelousness was
as inordinate as tho grave. I think the '(Opinion" was
6hcwn to David P. Coit,.Esq., present chief justice of
the county of Liberty, shortly after it was wnUen, and
in ihe fill or early in Hie winter ot ttie same year,
J835, 1 shewed it to the hon. Patrick C. Jack, then at
I.ihertv. nowi wf Brazina couutv, and to one or two
other Gentlemen at the former place. I took it with me
when I went tn Washington during the session of
the convention; and intended to have it published there,
presuming that the press would be remuved from San
Felipe to tint place, fir the convenience of that inter-
esting and important assemblage. But I found no press
ihcre I eheved it to several members of the conven-
tion, for the subject of lands and land claims was warm-
ly discus3od at tljat time. It was two or three days
in the possession of Gen. Rusk, a member of the con-
. Finding no opportunity to publish .the "Opinion," I
brought the manuscript to Ilarrisbnrg and then and
-there I first became acquainted with Col. Triplett. Be-
ing one day accidentally in conversation with him and
Col W Fairfax Grey, nt present'-of your city, on the
object of Texas lands and land titles the prodigious
-fspeculalions.in those lands were spoken of, and I inci-
dentally mentioned the "Opinion" which I had written:
I think' hoth gentlemen expressed a wish to see it.,' It
was got and read to them? and Col. Triplett observed,
hat if I would rgivc the manuscript to hiinjie would
i ave it published in New Oilcans. That ,many peo-
ple in the United States were underan impre-s'.on that
much of the land Texas of was monopolized by.a few
.peculators; and that that' O iiiiou""mi(,htaid the go-
- yernm'entio'esl-iblisliinga credit on'the bjshofihe pub-
lic donviin. This constituted my inducement fur send-
ing it IoNpw Orleans Mr. McKinney's assertion to
theco't-rry notwithstanding. But after all, I did, not
ive' tho manuscript to Coi. Triplclt; 1 gave it to Col.

To the Editor of the Telegraph:
Sir In the National B inner of to-day is a commu
nication, from,which the following is an extract:
"By-the-by,Mr. Editor, what has become of tho coun-
ty Treasury;' l.have beard it said it h is been lent out
at 180 per cent.per annum;xwe have paid pretty much
taxes this year. i
(Signed,) TWO MORE OLD SETTLERS."
This is false, and the writer never heard anv such
thing said. Mr. Hirris, (the county Treasurer,") is now
in bad healtfy so that "Twa;raore Old Sjttlers" will
probably escape nnpunished: hut if he will find any
responsible man who will saythat any money of the
county has ever been loaned at all, I engage that he
sLall pay 'severely for his slander..

LICENTIOUSNESS W THE, PRESS.
It is very much the fashionW the English newspa-
pers and to jrists in America, aid indeed with almost all
Englishmen who have ociasiotto speik of this coun-
try, to ascribe to the American'press a'ibarticlar disre
gard of of decoram'and decency in politicnl or other
controversies. Miss Martineau too, among other ob-
liging remarks, his assigned to fye newspapers of the
United States the superiority in "uncor, falseh )od and
folly," over those of ill the world beside. This is but
another instance of dlucking the (in )te from another's
eye, while thebeanum that ol tne plucker'escapes ob-
servation. The press in this country is bid enough,
certain!; although the newspapers of the principal cit-
ies are conducted generally with a degree of propriety
that is honorable both to editors and readers V

their equals probably in theSiorld. Yet those papers
infamous as.they are, have quitejan exiensive "circula-
tion, and it is said that they number, not only) among
their readers, but also their coalrioutori, minyof the
fashionable nobility and gentry of the Biitish metropo-.
lis. Even the great London papers thd TimesStan-
dard, Chronicle, &c. habitually-deal in I mgiiage' and
sentiments that would be denounced amonj us as utter-
ly disgraceful is for instance, the shameful or rather
shameless allusion to the private feelings of the Queen,
whom neitherthe dignity of her station nor ihe courtesy
of her sex, can protect from the impertinence and ran-
cour of the journalists. ,
As for the provincial presses, taken, as a body, they
go far beyond even any of our village weeklies. '
The mutuil blackguardism of the Eatanswitl Gazette
and Edtanswili Independent, so vvoll shown off" in the
Pickwick Papers, is not an exaggerated copy of what is
found in the English country papers. For instance,
the following choice collection of epithets lately bestow-
ed by a Cumberland paper upon ascbntemporary.

a 'lured retainer,' a 'shallow pated, self s jflicienl, de-
graded tool,' a Mick spittle,' an4adept,at lying,' a 'hardy
imposier, 'Lord Lousdale's Iaquey,' a '.malevolent sneer-
cr, and rabid raver,' a 'dealer in scandalous assaults,'
'one of the dirtiest bravoes that 5cv,cr disgraced the
pres,' and a 'fit associate for the skulking creature who
bound them on.' Its remarks are called 'a stream of
bile and Billingsgate,' poured, out to grajify tbe avowed
malice of faction,' and composed entirely of 'insulting
reproaches anJ studied blackguardism !'
AnJ yet this CjmaerUnd editor will doubtless tell his
readers that the newspapers in tho United States arc
shocking vehicles of blackguardism'!'

The particular course of wicked conduct pursued by
nil unprincipled ruler, will indeed be pointed out by his
predominent propensity. As this may happen to be av-
arice, ambition,-sloth or sensuality, his conduct will be
marked by the coloringprculiar to it; or should he, as
frequently occurs, be governed by several or all of them,
his magistracy will be tinged by the evil disposition at
the time prevailing; but the tincture will be always
deep and pois-mous, and the variagations will be only
variagations of foulness, guilt and dishonor"

native of Biwdswell, county of Norfolk, England. His
lemains were .escorted to the grave by the Milam

followed by a large and respectable portion of the citi-

The subject of this brief notice was a young man,
who by his modest and unassuming manners and moral
rectitude, of character, had endeared himself to all who
knew him and they were not a few. He -was a
sincere arid disinterested friend a kind and affectionate
.on and brother possessing many irtues, and few. if
any tauits; no Knew not what it was to, have an
enemy. He was among the first t volunteerihis
services in behalf of this Republic, in the com
inenccment of her struggle for liberty, having come
to the country in October, 1835,' in" the company
known as tho 'New Orleans Greys. The writer
of this knew him well. As a soldier, he was ever
found at his post; ready, at a moment's warning, to
buckle on his armor "and repair to the post of danger.
At the seige and taking of San Antonio, in December,
1335 he.suslained'the'character that was always enter-
tained of him by his gallant commander and brother
soldiers in one word, he did his duty." Ho was one
among the few who made the final attack on the Public
Square on the nignt of the lOih, which movement de-
cided the fate of that hard-fought battle and caused the
surrender of the enemv.
In the death of Mr. Durham,,his adopted country has
lost a useful and valuable citizen--for his all was centar-
ed here. But, paramount to this, he has left an aged
falher and rmther, and other near and 'dear relatives,!
and a numerous circle of friends, both here and abroad.
to mourn nis lrrepiraoie loss: tint "in the mitlstof life
ue are in deith," and, thus-, in the wisdom of Divine
Providence, has our friend been cut down, in the prime
of life and vigw pt rainhood just, as it were, when
springing into a fresh existence, with wealth, and fame,
and honor before hinf."
Peace be to thy soul, Durham, is the prayer'o'f one
who knew thee well one who knew how to appreciate
ihy worth as a soldier, a man, and a . Friend.
