Very Highlaw, which we will not submit to.

--We see from a card in the paper of this morning that we are charged with being liars, which we deny out and out; and why should Messrs. 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.
