Aber Ward Election. "To ibe Editor. Sir,—Considering that owing to (I lack of space, my letter was curtailed, and delayed for a week, thereby marring id cl-jectn.

His c'wl audacity .n maintaining tha.t black is white and is black, and b*re-fac.-d eifrontery in claiming that erery a of his opponent is rubbish, while his own hits the blJlïs-eye and rings the bell every time, clearly proves the exalted opinion he holds of his cwn powers and caj abi- lities, but as a specimen of that class of corres- pondents who !-peak to the galh ry, who evade plain arguments, who cram their ieiter., with clap-tr; p vi rbiuge-, our correspondent is an extreme example of the genius. ILt tliis, liis his latest edition, be outshines all his i th^r attempts. His letter stripped of it., copious mass of superlative adjectives ami • jaculatory exclamatinns amounts to nothing. lie, has indulged in blackguardism which will not strengthen Ins case, nor will a superabundance of adjectives hlind the public to the barrenness of his literary efforts. 1 have sufficient con- fidence in its common sense, and in its ability to I discern between g;iset.-us vapouriugs, and the iair cf one who has justCf at heart. i 1 (,t;, p-.etty strong with his | notes vf t.t.lmu«tion and amazeu ent, but I an: I | f"r ilis furiie a*"ti=inpt to rectify his biuud) rs.
