To the Editor of the Patriot.

Sir, - It was with no little astonishment I read in your last paper an article signed "A Passenger," detailing as he says, "the disgraceful conduct of the proprietors of the steamboat Brockville."

I am one of those proprietors, and unhesitatingly pronounce your correspondent a base and infamous calumniator. There is not a word of truth in the article from beginning to end; and, for my own satisfaction, I would thank you for the name of the author whom you "know to be a man of honor and a gentleman." If he has any pretensions to be considered either the one or the other, and wrote what he believed to be the truth, he cannot object to the communication. Your obedient Servant,

Brockville, July 24th. JONAS JONES

The Editor of the Patriot acknowledges the above communication to have been handed in by Capt. Paynter, "his most esteemed friend."!! Editor Whig.
