' Editor Adveiitisi:k: I have often
had occasion to observe that history
repeats itself, and nature with all her
kaloideoscopic variations reproduces
character. I was was formerly of the
opinion that tho editor of tho Granger
was tho only man in JJrownvillo to
whom the above couplet would truth
fully and justly apply. Hut lo! another
and greater appears in tho person of
young Thompson, of tho Iiejmblicun,
who assuming the role of a solf-consti-ttitod
judgo on tho throne of taste far
surpasses his more huiublo co nputitor,
by tho sublimity of his impudence. For
him Monro seems to occupy the samo
position that St. John tho Uaptist did
to our Savior, nieiely 11 precursor pre
paring tho way for a more exalted gen
ius, whoso shoo latcheU, ho will soon
bo found unworthy to unloose. Every
body knows that Mooie's vicious stric
tures arise mainly from a ictarded cir
culation, an imperfect digestion and
an occasional overdo w of bile. Know
ing tho causo people genorally forgive
tho offense becauso thoy can plainly seo
that his moral agency is interfered with
and sometimes overpowod by a phys
ical cachexy. All his acquaintances
aro awaro of tho fact tli.it ho has lived
in tho "culchawod" precincts of Bos
ton. And at times 111 h's private con
versation is himsolf somewhat given
over to a habit of reviling tho institu
tions of JJrownvillo ami tho west gen
erally, occasioned we suppose by an
unduo "hankering" after the llesh pots
Qf tho so-called modern "Athens of
America." Perhaps it is because ho is
conscious of his own weakness in this
paiticular. that Mooieisall tho more
zgalous and vindictive, when ho has a
suspicion that somo one else is guilty
of a like mUdeincanor. 'With this
spirit at any rato ho has falsely ac
cused Mrs. Colby of municipal slander
in that she has spoken evilly and false
ly of JJrownvillo with malico aforo
thought. In this he is seconded by tho
Republican, a disciple worthy of tho
teacher, and tho two liavo set up such
a howling and braying as would make
ono suppose that Cerobus and Ualaam's
nag wore again on earth. Ho certain
ly has in a private circle been guilty of
this offonso to a far greater extent
than Mrs. Colby ever droamod of, and
nqw he thinks that by turning statos
evidence that ho can clear himself
from tho odium which ho editorially
claims is inseparably attached to overy
blasphemers of Urownvlllo, and thus
earn tho rownrd of an oily and indus-

persons much older thanhlmsulf.whoso
maturor years alono ought to entitle
them to respectful treatmont ami somo
degree of consideration ovon from
those who may honestly dlffor in mat
ters of belief, Perhaps it is Jxuo that
public speakers aro fair marks for crit
icism, but it by no moans follows that
they aro to bo pestered by every gnat
or roviled by ovory sort' of human buz
zard who happoiiB to lack sitillcloht
sense to discover tho fact that there
is hoiiiu distinction to bo made between
criticism and ubuse.

is louuueu in 1110 depravity of such
minds as have not been mended by re
ligion, nor improvod by good education,
and of those despairing to rlso to dis
tlnction by their virtues aro happy if
others can be depressed to a level with
Tho moving causo of these rotlec
tions is tho appearance of numerous
"squibs" concerning Mrs. Colby and
her work in J3rownvlllo in the said
HejmbUmn, and more particularly in
the edition of Juno 22, No. V, which
wo father on tho smalUpox editor of
that sheet. It appears from tho facts
that .Mrs. Colby has been and is a
prominent workor In tho woman suf
Ji.igo movement In tho state. And
wheor she has been heretofore she
has been highly spoken of as an intelli
gent ami cultured woman. 'Ono who

itor of tho Republican. Sho caino to
HrovMivillo as sho haul a perfect right
to do, and (as oho had not been ox posed
to the small-pox and did ndt ship any
infected goods to this place or slip into
town in a box-car) sho was freo to go
wherovor shosa wilt without having her
conduct called in question by this edi
tor or oven tho town council. Sho ar
rived too Into to attend tho school ex
hibition, (but Moore holds her roponsi
bio for not attending all the Bamo,)
and sho was not hired to write up a
puff for the town, nor did her business
permit her to tako a minuto inventory
of tho colossal commercial enterprises
of Or become acquainted with tho An
tors and Vmulerlts lesiding In tho
place. And I have nqw no doubt but
that sho has a kqoi sonso of her be
reavement when slip reflects that sho
had no timoto improvohorsolf in the
society of the distinguished Moore, tho
"cdlcliawed" JJostoniim or to correct
her manners and icsthotic tastes by a
personal interview with tlo great
critic, J. C. Thompson, yho edits tho
gro.at moral paper, andthus at opco
avail herself in tlio conversation and
carriago of the latter, of tho combined
wisdom of lluskin, Oscar Wildo aiid
Lord Chostorllold. Whattyi pity 'tjs
that life's so short and, unsatisfactory
when so much is to bo 'learned from
tljose small fry editors! ;l.
Tho Republican endoayorffto mislead
tho public by culling outsit, fow setii
tonces in Mrti. Colby's'lottpr and seeks
to distort it into ovldencp of a mali
cious design on her part to injure
Hrownville. In this ho does her doublo
injustice. First, becauso fSw readers
of this county will huvo the opportun
ity of reading her whole letter and thus
have a basis for judging fairly from
tlio tenor and connection what she really
meant, or tho spirit in which it was
written. And secondly, becauso at
present fow readers realize what a gen
uine "ass in 11 lion's skin" this tyro
editor Is. until ho has further oppor
tunity to discovor himsolf by his con
Waiving all discussion of the rela
tive merits of the towns of Nomaha
county it would seem fair to say that
tho malicious intent should be proven
as charged boforo sentence is finally
passed upon Mrs. Colby or her cauae.
It does not appear that sho had any in
ducement from pecuniary interest a
motive which would no doubt have
great Inlluonco with either of tho two
captious critlcB above namod. Sho
could not have been prejudiced by any
porsonal knowledge of tho town of
Brownvillo as she came a total strangor
to the placo and its institutions,
Like every other porson enguged In
