TO CORRESPONDENTS. After maturely considering the last communication of our correspondent Catruth,' it appears to us, as the contest which it embraces has been suspended, if not for the present entirely set at rest, by one of the parties most interested in the discussion, and is most seriously depreca:cd by another party,-it therefore appears to us altogether adviseable to drop the further investigation of a subject in which so many discordant interests are involved, and the extreme delicacy of which at this time inight entail many difficulties upon those who engaged in it. We beg, nevertheless, to thank our friendly correspondent for his uviforin attention to our publication,
