*We have published this letter at the request of our gifted and valued correspondent, though we venture to think that, as the subject has been dealt with in our editorial columns, it is unnecessary. And we beg it to be distinctly understood, that we neither endorse all the sentiments expressed, nor can we approve of the general tone of the letter, which is written somewhat in a spirit of resentment, and of "service" laudation. If there is one man more than another, who is anxious to conciliate public opinion, it is our present Viceroy. What he has done has been, we are sure, the result of inadvertence, and no one would more deeply regret a false step than he would. To take up a position of resentment, therefore, is to assume an attitude which is hardly suitable to the occasion.—Ed., I. M. G.
