Everything connected with this individual and his mission, may possibly be right, ba. we oonfess that some of his replies, when quest ooed close, and the failure of the person above alluded to to find any sueh family cr number in the quarter where he located them causes the matter, as we remarked in the onset to look rather suspicious Our obj?t is to put both him and the public on their guard trom many of his replies to questions put to him it is evident he is a stranger in thij Dis trict, unlen bis object wa: to deceive The we ar was again let on the lower level of our canal yesterday.
