p.3 Anonymous Stabbers - The Picton Gazette has printed some very remarkable anonymous communications, in which undignified persons are permitted to say things to which they would be either ashamed or afraid to append their names. In one of these nameless communications a writer is much displeased because we found fault with the captains of vessels who allowed an unfortunate sailor, named Mose Dulmage, to drift across the lake, to die of cold and exhaustion. It is useless to bandy words about an event which is too serious for levity. If the anonymous blusterer is one of the censured crews, a conscience, presumably accusing him of the most criminal neglect, should force a discreet silence on his part; if not an interested party his cavilling nonsense is as much out of place as his insensate interference.
