If he had any shadow of a chance of substantiating what he blurted out at the parish meeting he would ere this have taken up his defence in the Facts are subbern things" under all circumstances, and even if a Vicar with an air of infallibility calls a fact a lie, it is no less a truth for that. Truth is truth always, and no Vicar can alter it. The rev. gentlemtm called all statements in this case untrue yea, bare untruth He has been offered proof, but he does not want it. He will not repeat his denial; he is afraid of it. If he had any ground to stand on he would not forfeit his opportunity by holding his tongue, for that can easily be used by him, as was shown in your report of the Parish meeting. He is to be congratulated for having seen the error of his folly. Of couts: the Vicar in not wiitirg would have the public believe that his policy is xilent contempt. The gentleman in holy orders is above taking any notice of what is written 1 But has he been silent ? Has he been above ? No far from it. He crowcd the loudest at the parish meeting, and became so low as to try and make a stroke of popularity at the expense of branding other people false. This is the most ungentlemanly hit in the whole affair. The Vicar knew nia birds, as he thought, and counted seemingly upon a good stroke of business and it would have been a grand hit if he had been able to hold out Instead of that, he has made a flat shot. It is not safe for any man to-day to speak unless he can prove his statement.—not even for a Vicar. It is a common gospel preached in Mydrim, and from house to house too, that it is better not to reply to the letters in the Reporter so as to preserve the peace of the paiish. The vicar at any rate dors not seem to have personal faith in this doctrine when delivering himself at the parish meeting. It is also taught in Mydrim that the sole object of those who write on this subject is to create dis- turbance and agitate the parish. This is a nice goody-goody twaddle. Any pretence—any sham— will do when there is no case. It is hard to have the truth told, and whosoever will speak out facts ho can expect no small measure of ili-treatment. It was said of Paul and Silas, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also." It is not known who your correspondents are yet whomsoever suspected—and many a one is sus- pected—is open even in Mydrim to tl e rougheet handling. People who can't write pretend to love peace yet are boiling over with anger. Some bombasts care not whom they insult, and harass and molest on the highway. Certain pomposities think that they can attack anyone on the road and not be brought to justice. It they curb not their rage it will he necessary to appeal for protection under the Magna Charta signed by King John. This Charta has a special provision for the safety of every man's own person. It will be well for those who bluster and bully in thoroughfares to keep t;iis in mind. If they wish to speak, surely, sir, you wiil freely lend them your columns. It appears that Mydrim's affairs are managed more by swagger than system and intelliglice. When this spirit is allowed its own tling, the result will be that even a teacher will be subject to bullying in the streeti and no talk made of an official right to interfere &nd on intelligent investigation.
