PORTLAND ,GUARDIAN, And Normanby General Advertiser. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1842. AFFRAY WITH THE WHALERS.

Fortunately a few scratches on the face, and slight bruises on the.ltdy, were the utmost damages inflicted by tlh ;combatants'on each other; but considering the formidable wea pons used on the occasion, and the angry feelings displayed at-the time, we can only account for the escape of tlieparties engaged in the contest, fiom' suffering 'the infliction of some grievous bodily harni, 'by the agency of an unscn bhand.;.

To the Editor of the Portland "Guard;an. Sir,--The last nrunben of the. Portland fMer curucornainsa most gratuitous and unjust attack upon Mr. Blair, the Police Magistrate of this town, signed 'lThomas Riekett, which . would - beg, in the firstnumbcr of your journal, flatly to contradict. The trijustice complainedl of arose out of at case lately heard at the Police Office, under the provision ofthe Master's and Strvant's Act, and was, according to law, tried hy1 a tielnch -f magistrates, therefore Mr. lair could only have had'one voice in the decision. It is unnecessary to state:the facts of the cae, they arenotoriouc, sufficeit to say, that the whole community concur in acknowledging the justice of the verdict, particularly as it is sutspected that Mr. Rickett was Icd into the predicament in which he has so unwarily placed himself, solely by his wish to gratify the malice of the lady that now lives under his protection.
