General Washington's idea of Pro
pane swearing. Dedicated to all Officers,
Military or Civil.
Kxtract from the orderly book of the army
under the command of Washington, dated ut
head-quarters, in the city of New-York, Au
gust 8, 1776.
'The general is sorry to be informed,
that the foolish and wicked practice of pro
fane swearing, a vice heretofore little known
in an American army, is growing into fash
ion; he hopes the officers will, by example
as well as influence, endeavour to check it,
and that both they and the men wiljl reflect,
that we can have little hope of the blessing
of heaven on our arms, if we insult it by im
piety and folly; added to this, it is a vice so
mean and low, without any temptation, that
every man of sense and character detests
and despises it."
Laconics. I used in early life to long to
be a martyr to have some grand opportuni
ty of honoring God, of renouncing all for
him. I would hope there was some piety in
the feeling, but there was certainly more
pride and ignorance. Well, this opportuni
ty occurs every moment: to subdue the lusts
of the heart requires more true heroism than
to die at the stake.
There are three requisites to our proper
enjoyment of every earthly blessing which
God bestows upon us viz., a thankful re
flection on the goodness of the Giver; a deep
sense of the unworthincss of the receiver;
and a sober recollection of the precarious
tenure by which we hold it. Ihe first will
make us grateful, the second humble, and
the last moderate.
As the sun breaking forth in winter, so is
piety in the season of allliction; as a shower
in the midst of summer, so are the solitary
drops of sorrow mingled in our cup of pleas
ure. Miss Smith.

Nothing is more odious than the face
