A most extraordinary pamphlet has just appeared, from the pen of our corres
pondent who signs himself Thule, in which he grievousiy complains. of our conduct, as editors, towards him.--A very few words will be sufficient to justify us, and to shew that he has been treated with a degree of indulgence, beyond what could reasonably be expected. His charges are three, i. Our reluctance in receiving his first communication. 2. Our absolute rejection of his
last. And 3. Our having called him a Zetland landlord. As to the first paper he sent us, we do not hesitate to say, that in suppressing it,
we were doing a favour not only to the public, but to Thule himself. Nothing resembling it, we are persuaded, was ever written since the creation of the world ; for, besides being wholly devoid of common sense, it bore no relatioa whatever to the subject in question, nor seemingly to any subject *. All we could make out was, that it contained a most vehement and abusive attack, against certain mysterious characters, who were accused, not as might have been expected, of calumniating the Zetland Landlords, but of other crimes the most dreadful and diabolical that human imagination can conceive. There run through it indeed a sort of wild poetical imagination, which rendered it some hat amusing ; but we could not venture to amuse our readers at the expence of real and living characters. On our returning these effusions, which seemed written too much under Lugar influence, an offer was made to write another paper, which the respectability of the channel through which it came, induced us to accept, though we had strong reason to suspect,
that confinement and low diet would have formed a more salutary regimen. But we then distinctly stated, and repeated in every successive stage of the business, as our decided principle, That all counter-statements upon matters of fact which appeared to him misrepresented, would be readily admitted; but that there must be no personal abuse. Yet upon this ground we were obliged to reject another paper. But when a third was presented, containing some portion of common sense, and matter of fact, we not only received it, but were at great pains in correcting the
grammar and spelling, so as to make it fit to appear before the public. 20 We rejected his last. And for this no apology can be necessary to any one
who can take the trouble to read a few pages, keeping in mind the principle which we have stated above. It is somewhat singular, that the only motive which Thule can contrive for our supposed maltreatment of him, is the desire of filling our pages with any kir ,l of matter, however indifferent. Now there is no doubt that, had we allowed the controversy to go on, we might, for months to come, have filled with it the whole correspondence part of our magazine, with
great ease to ourselves, though to the infinite annoyance of our readers. 3. We have called him a Zetland Landlord. We certainly had reason to think
him so, and in hastily making up the title, it struck us as tending both to make the communication more respectable, and to authenticate the facts. It offered also a kind of excuse to the public for the insertion of so singular a communication. Nor did it ever occur to us as possible, that, by the writer of the article, this
could be considered as such an injurious appellation. We can most decidely deny his ridiculous allegations of a concert between us and
P. N. The present editor, though he esteems that gentleman's talents, has no personal acquaintance with him beyond a few accidental meetings. As to any accidental delays, they have been entirely owing to the great extent and variety of business carried on by the publishers; or to the necessity of occupying the Magazine with more important matter.
* If Thule considers himself as injured by this representation, he has an easy mode of justifying himself, by favouring the world with a perusal of these curious and original effusions.
