The folldmng lcttor will oxplain itself. We can alïord to lut our oorrospondont "laugh and grow fat" over tho Doraocracy supporting Greeley, as the roasons !ie assigns for subscribing for the ÁKGUS show him opon to conviction, or nt least that ho knows and appreciates a good paper. His letter is coinniended to other GnANT Republicans : Pittsfield, August 31, 1672. Eliiiu B. Pond, Esh. : I herowith sond you two dollnrs for a year's subscription to your paper. Scientific men say that laughing is hoalthy and particularly so to old uien like me, and I want to havo somo hearty ones at you Democrats supporting GltEELEY. Of all men he has abused you tho most, but as Christians yoü aro required to bless those who curse you. But Solomon says, " be not ow-Hghteout lest thou destroy thyself." I tbink you are ovcr-righteous in his support, and will actually further demoralize yoxir party. God made the Vine and oalled it not only good but very good, and tho drunkard destroys himsolf by taking too tnuch wine. A great good can be mado an evil by exoess. Prohibition is pulling tlie tares out of the whoat regardless of tho damage dono tho whcat. which (Jü'l forbids. Other reasons I have for takiug your paper. I had mailcil in your postónico 35 cents f'ir the Detroit weekly oampaign J'n Pret, but received none, so I thought I would try you. And you always publish the particular returns of eleotiona wlii'Oi I am anxious to see, although I am a conservativo politician, as well as a fnll report of the procoedings of the Board of Supervisor?, in which I am interested, being a heavy tax-payer. So I tliink 1 shall get the worth of my money, your politics I uithing about. ïho higher you 83Ctol GRBEI.EY the heartier I shall laugh. I am not liko ÖToeley and abuso poople becauso they hold different opinions. Your most obedient servant,
