To Alex, Hill & Co. --Sirs: I have seen a personal attack made on me in yesterday's Dispatch. accusing me of stopping your servant in carrying packages to the American Hotel. This I deny, and which I can prove, too. As for watching your shop, on Saturday last, it is also false. You ask who I am and where did I come from? Sirs, my name is Denis Bropry, a native of Ireland, County Kilkenny, Ballgragget; a sober, industrious citizen, and I defy any man to say that he has ever seen me w the notice of the employers of this city, (Richmond, Va.) They have struck against the Cord wainers' Society here, and want to reduce our wages 25 per cent. less than the usual price. D. Brophy, Pres't. "Thos. M'Carthy, Sec'y." Mr. Alex.

Page, White, Harwood, and ourselves, be watched on Saturday last, to see who took out work? And why should our servants be stopped whilst carrying packages to the American Hotel, which had been purchased by gentlemen, and stopped by the President of the Cordwainers' Society? And who is the President, and where did he come from? And who was it that had a card published in the Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York papers, warning journeymen boot and shoe makers not to come to Richmond, as they would be whipped? and that any man who takes out work from Messrs. Page. White, Harwood, and ourselves, is to be whipped by some of the Society men? We have nothing further to say. Alex. Hill & Co. Richmond, Feb. 25th, 1861. fe 26--1t
