The editor of that pure, gen teel, truthful and sinless sheet is in dire trib ulation lest the letter of Mr. Secretary Cass should not be properly understood by the faithful. His distress is really agonizing, and his lamentations over the conduct of the Op position press, which persists in giving pub licity to the precious document, are uttered in the most plaintive and melancholy strains Occasionally these partake of a wrathful char acter, and swell forth in s...
