It would     appear that the writer of that sensible letter his two objects in view, viz. -to-damp the ardour of those roving parties who by day and night have for a length of time past defended the   settlements against the incursions of the Aborigines ; and to offer an advice, which if adopted, would at once compromise the national character of Great Britain, and expose the En- glish to the same everlasting odium which history has fixed on the cruelty of the Spaniards who used blood hounds for hunting down the unfortunate natives of the American islands   who had taken refuge in the woods and caverns, to shelter   themselves against the cruelties and avarice of their rapacious invaders.   Whoever the writer of the above let...
