Haste Not—Rest Not.
"Without haste—without rest!"
Bind the motto to thy breast!
Bear it with thee as a spell ;
Storm or sunshine, guard it well;
Heed not flowers that round thee bloom—
Bear it onward to the tomb !
Haste not—let no thoughtless deed
Mar fore'er the spirits speed ;
Ponder well and know the right,
Onward then with all thy might;
Haste not —years can ne'er atone
For one reckless action done !
Rest not!—life is sweeping by,
Go and dare before you die;
Something mighty and sublime
Leave behind to conquer time;
Glorious 'tis to live for aye
When these forms have passed away.
"Haste not! —rest not!" Calmly wait;
Meekly bear the storms of fate ;
Duty be thy polar guide !
Do the right whate'er betide!
Haste not! —rest not! Conflicts past,
God shall crown thy work at last! Goethe.
Going Aloft—A Tragedy.
Captain Basil Hall, in his miscellaneous wri
tings, relates an incident on board of a British
frigate to illustrate the terrible cruelty iufiicted
on seamen, in the name of discipline, during the
early years of the present century, lie describes
a timid boy who was so cruelly lashed because
he was afraid to go aloft, that he became a ma
niac, and ever afterward appeared to act with
out tear, runuiug like a monkey from mast-head
to mast-head and along the yards.
An old mau-of-war's-man told the writer of
this, the same story, many years ago, with a se
quel, which Captain Hall has not given. The
sailor's story was in substance as follows:
A timid boy, about fourteen years of age, hesi
tated to go alott, but, by the captain's orders,
was forcibly put in the main rigging, and theu
a boatswain's mate was commanded to lash him
like a dog until he learned to run aloft. The
poor fellow's legs and arms trembled, he grasped
the shrouds —be cried—he prayed the inhuman
captain for God's sake to fiave mercy on him ;
but all iv vain. The boatswain's mate was
ordered to lay on harder an. I harder, regardless
ot the boy's piercing screams, which made even
veteran seamen turn from the brutal scene witii
disgust. His clothes were tent from his back,
the blood followed the lash, aud still the tyrant
roared our, "Lay on, boatswain's mate!" With
one wild scream he sprang from under the lash
and bounded up the rigging with amazing rapid
ity. He doubled tho futtock rigging like a cat,
passed up the topmast and topgallant rigging
with undiminished speed, shinned tbe unrattled
royal rigging, and perched himself like a bird
alongside ot the pendant, which streamed trom
the masthead. Here he paused looking fearlessly
upou the deck below. All bauds came up to
see him, his cries aud cruel treatment had al
ready enlisted their sympathy, aud, it possible,
had increased their hatred ot the captain.
The monster was smiling complacently at the
success of his experiment; for he was one oi
those tyrants who boasted that the cat, properly
applied- couid make cien do anything. Still he
was appreheu*ive that the boy might destroy
himself, aud the circumstance be used against
him at the Admiralty, where he knew repre
sentations of his cruelty had already been made.
The men gaz.d in sileuce, looking first at the
boy and then at the captain, who was seated
rear the ttjffrail. They dared not be seen speak
ing to one auother; it was a tioggable *ffence;
even at night, spies passed uuder their ham
mocks to ascertain if they whispered. The offi
cers walked the let 1 sideot the quarter deck, oc
casionally casting their eyes alott, but were as
silent as the men.
Still the boy clung to the mast-head, playing
with the pendant, apparently unconscious ot the
interest he excited below. Tired with gazing
alott, the captain *-uag out through the speaking
"Down from aloft! Downl"
The boy sprang upon the truck at a bound, and
raising himself erect, waved his cap around his
head; then stretching his arms out, gave a wild
laughing scream, and threw himself forward.—
The captain jumped to his feet, expecting to see
the boy dashed iv pieces ou deck; but when
clear of the shade ot the sails, he saw him sliding
aloi»g the main royal stay toward the foretop
gallaut mast head, aud beard him laugh aud
chatter like a monkey, as it enjoying the sport.
He reached the mast head in safety, and then
descended along the topgallant backstay hand
over-hand. The captain looked at him, and
was about to speak, but could not find words. —
The boy frothed at the mouth aud nose; his
eyes seemed starting out of his head ; he rolled
upon the deck in convulsions, staining it with
the blood which stili trickled from his back.—
Be was a maniac. The surgeon's skill iv the
course of a tew weeks restored his health, but
not his reasou.
From that time forward he was fearless. In
tbe darkest night, in the fiercest gales, he would
scamper along the deck like a dog, and bound
alott with a speed which uo one on board could
equal. He would run over the yards without
holding, pass from raa*t to mast on the stays,
ascend and descend by the leeches of tbe sails,
aud run upou the naked studding-sail booms.—
He was nimble as a cat, and had forgotten tear.
Some of the light duties aloft he learned to dis
charge in company with them —he did as they
did, but could not be trusted to do anything
himself. Oue order he always obeyed without
hesitation —at the command, "Away aloft," he
was off, and never paused until he reached the
mast head. As he was harmless, and rarely
spoke, the captain kept him on board, and, in
the course of a year, sent him often aloft for
amusement. His strength increased with his
years, but his bulk and lit ight remained nearly
tbe same at eighteen as when he became a ma
His ribs, breast and back, seemed one case
of bone, aud his sinews and muscles made hi»
legs and arms appear like pillared columns. He
was fair, with lignt blue eyes and delicate skin ;
his face oval and full, but void of expression—
neither love, tear, revenge or pleasure could be
traced in its stolid outline. His eyes stared at
everything, without appearing to see, aud when
he spoke, there was rarely any meaning in his
words. He followed the men in their various
duties, like a dog following his master. When
ever he was struck or started by a boatswain's
mate, he ran up the main rigging screaming at
the top of his lungs, aud never paused until he
had performed the fiist evolution, which had
made him a maniac.
As the sailor's story runs, the ship arrived at
Plymouth to be decked and refitted. The cap
tain, availing himself of the leisure, was going to
be married, and the news was communicated by
his servant to the cook, who soon circulated it
011 the berth-deck among tbe men, who cursed
him and all of his kin.
His servant came on board of the hulk where
the men were lodged, the evening when the cap
taiu was to be married. Crazy Joe (the name
the boy was known by,) met him at the gang
way, and asked intelligently if the captain would
be married that evening and where. The ser
vant gave him the information he desired and
went about bis business.
That night, while tbe captain was undressing,
he was seized by the throat aud dragged to the
"Look, fair lady, on me," said Crazy Joe,
"but do not scream, or I will kill yon. Look on
me. I hold within my grasp a devil, who de
lights in cruelty—a merciless fiend who has
scourged the backs of huudreds of brave men
a ruffian who has robbed me of my reason. I
hold him within the grasp of death, at the very
moment bis black km.l thought itself within the
reach of bli-s. Monster, look upon yonr lady—
think a momeDt of the heaven of earthly joy al
most within your reach—then think of me, poor
Crazy Joe. and of the hell to which I send yon!
Die, wretch, die."
When the alarm was given the strangled body
of the captain was found lying alongside of the
bridal bed; bnt the maniac who killed him was
never recognized afterward. He belonged to
Cornwall, and probably found shelter from pur
suit in the mine**, until the excitement passed
The lady stated at the time and many years
afterwards, that the attack of the maniac was so
sudden and silent that she knew nothing of it
until the curtains were pushed aside and she felt
the pressure of the captain's body bend over the
bed. Joe held his victim around the neck witb
the right hand and turned him from side to side
as easily as if he had been a child, while the
forefinger and thumb ot the left hand grasped
her own throat, ready to extinguish her life if
she attempted to raise an alarm.
His face was pale and death-like, his eyes
started, but were motionless and every word he
uttered seemed to issue from the very depths of
his soul. Tbe captain's looks were terrible be
yond description; death lett the impress of fe
rocity upon his da.ke..ef features. How the
maniac entered or left the room sbe never knew ;
his departure was as noiseless as his entrance.—
So paralyzed was she with fear, that an hour
elapsed before she could muster up courage to
call for help, but she thanked God when
the Captain's cruel ciiaracter became generally
known ashore, that she had been rescued from
his alliance.— Roslon Traveller.
Anecdote of Henry Clay.
When Mr. Clay visited Hopkinsville, Ken
tucky, the first year of the administration of
John Quincy Adams, to defend himself against
the charge of the ''bargain, intrigue and corrup
tion," he was called upon by his friends at a
large aud spacious saloon. Dr. H , then
of that place and a great friend of Mr. Clay, was
by his side, presenting him to his numerous
friends as tbey came forward. Presently the
Doctor saw the tall form of the ecctntric Gov
ernor Pittsur enter the door of the saloon. In
stantly he embraced the opportunity to point
him ont to Mr. Clay, and then whispered to him
that that tall man at ibe door is Governor Pitt
sur, of Pond River, a most worthy friend of
yours, whom you must know without an intro
duction ; and you must be certain, before he
leaves, to wish that he may never have another
invasion of squirrels. Thus posted, Mr. Clay
stood his ground in the centre of the saloon,
while the Governor, unconscious of the inno
cent trick, approached him by degrees, and say
ing as he came, "Don't introduce me to Mr. Clay ;
he vviil know me, and I shall know bim ; for
great men know each other on sight."
The Governor looked everywhere but in the
right place; asking, as he passed on, "Where is
tbe god like man ?" and saying, "I shall know
him ou sight; for great men like tis never fail to
know each other. I beg of you, gentlemen, not
to introduce us; we will know each other, though
we have never seen each otber. You say he is
iv this room ; good—l shall Had him!" and a
way he stalked towards the place where Mr.
Clay stood. Presently he drew himself up to
bis loftiest height upon beholding Mr. Clay, and
eyed him for some time in unalterable admira
tion. Mr. Clay stepped forward with his bland
est smile and sweete*. voice, aud exclaimed :
"How are you, Governor Pittsur, of Pond IJiv
er? lam rejoiced to see you." "Hear that!"
said the Governor; "dint I tell you that he
would know me, and tbat I would know him ?
Yes, yes! gentlemen, be is the greatest man that
lives !" After cordially shaking hands, and tell
ing a few of his happy jokes, Mr. Clay said, "My
dear Governor, I wish that you may live a thou
sand years, that heakh may abound throughout
your wide domain, and tbat you may never have
another invasion of squirrels." "Bless me!"
said the Governor, "did you hear that? How
did he /.now that l:;*-. people :_*>* their entire
crop oi corn last year by squirrels? Bless my
soul, he knows every siring ! Wonderful! won
derful! I always told you he was the greatest
man in the world ; didnH I boys?'' And the
Governor left in a state of perfect admiration of
the great statesman.
An English paper gives the following item in
relation to the ladies of the royal household of
tbe Queen of England :
The Mistress ot the Robes is an office of great
importance and oue of the best in the gift of a
ministry. The duties distinguish the holder a
bove all others; for instauce, that of riding in
tbe royal carringe on all State occasions, and
robing the Queen at the ceremonials of import
ance, though the actual manipulation connected
with the duties of Mistress of tbe Robes is usu
ally performed by attendants on the person of
the Sovereign. Groom of the Stole was rather
a curious office to attach to that of Misstress of
the Robes; but, perhaps, requisite when a fe
male was on the throne. The Stole is a narrow
yest, formerly embroidered with roses, fleur-de
lis, and crowns, and lined with sarsenet. Sarah,
Duchess of Marlborough, held both of these offi
ces in the reigu of Queen Anne, and so did the
Duchess of Somerset. The salary was then
£800, and is now £500 per annum. The Ladies
of the Bedchamber—the duties are connected
with all things appertaining to the royal sleep
ing aud dressing apartments, of which they have
the complete superintendence and control, as
well also of the apparel of the Queen. The Bed
chamber Women are seven in number, and their
salaries and duties are similar to the Ladies of
the Bedchamber. In the correspondence ol
Henrietta, Countess of Suffolk, there are some
lingular illustrations ot this office. Maids ot
Honor are of aucient date, and of considerable
importance. They were always paid and well
cared for by the royalty. The Chronicles of the
reign of Henry VIII, give numerous examples
of this fact. An order tor the provision of one
of the Ladies of Honor to Catherine, is very mi
nute; and, among other things, provides her
with a gallon of ale for break*a*-t, and a chine
of beef; a piece of beef and a gallon of beer for
dinner. In the afternoon, a gallon of ale and a
maniple of bread ; aud for supper a mess of por
ridge, a piece of mutton, and a gallon of ale;
after supper, half a g_llo!t of -vine and bread.—
In 1775 the Ladies petitioned tor an increase of
salary instead of rations for supper, and were al
lowed £70 per annum. Their duties in the pres
ent day are to attend on the Queen ; the turn of
the eight ladies being according to an order
drawn up each year. The salary is £300 per
A Faithful Wife. —Trie Mareschal de Mou
chy having been conducted a prisoner to the
Luxemburg, had scarcely arrived when his wife
entered the prison. The jailor observed to her
that the order for the Mareschal's arrest made
no mention of her. She answered with mingled
gayety and sweetness: "Since my husband is a
prisoner, I am one also."
When he was carried before the Revolution
ary Tribunal, be was still attended by his wife.
The Public Accuser here informed Madame de
Mouchy that she was uot called upon to appear,
she replied: "When my husband ia called for,
I am also called."
Iv a word, when the fatal sentence of death
was pronounced upon the Mareschall, his faith
ful wife ascended the cart with him, and when
the executioner objected, because she was not
condemned to die, t-he answered: "Since sen
tence is passed upon my husband, it is passed
upon me also!"

The Toilet Table.
Perfumerj-, says an exchange, seems at first
sight a very unimportant article, when regarded
in a commercial or statistical light. It is so ut
terly a luxury, so completely what practical peo
ple would call useless, that few of onr fair
readers ever absolutely realize the immense con
sumption of the article, or the number of per
sons annually employed in the production of
these delicious little essences which we sprin
kle upon our handkerchiefs, or which imbue our
pomatum pots and tooth-powders. It is almost
incredible tbat Italy, Turkey, Thibet, Tonquin,
the West Indies, and more particularly France,
occupy vast tracts of land as "flower farms," for
tbe express purpo-e of converting the multitudi
nous blossoms into a myriad of perfumes; that
in the South ot France 80,000 people are annu
ally employed in the cultivation and prepara
tion of flowers; that one large perfumer of Gras
se and Paris employs, annually, 80,000 lbs ot
orange flowers, 60,000 lbs. of cassia flowers, 54,-
--000 lbs. of rose leaves, 32,000 lbs. of jasmin bios
soms, 32,000 lbs. of violets, 20,000 lbs. of tube
rose, and 16,000 lbs of hlac, to say nothing of a
perfect wilderness of lemon, mint, citron, thyme,
rosematy, and other oderiferous plants in pro
portion. Yet it is a fact, nevertheless, and the
universal fondness for sweeet scents corrobo
Beau Brummel, tho most perfect exquisite,
perhaps, who ever lived, asserted that "no man
of fashion should use perfumes, but should send
his linen to be washed and dried ou Hampstead
Heath." It was certainly an original idea in
tbat day, more particularly, but neither then
nor now accepted as a universal rule, the remark
may be considered as the very "poetry of purity
and cleanliness." There is no perfume so sweet
as that imparted by the fresh green grass, spark
ling water, and a brilliant noon day sun ; no o
dur nearly fragrant as tbat which is borrowed
from tbe bleaching-ground.
To make use of the fair and fleeting blos
soms ; to retain by art long after winter would
else inevitably have robbed us of the pleasure,
tbe sweetness of rose and violet, of mignionette
and tuberose, seems poetical enough. There is
so intimate a connection in our minds between
beauty and blossoms, that a fair girl who car
ries with her tbe deiicious aroma of auy of tbe
garden treasures, seems only to have appropria

be conscious of tbe piesence of a rose when Ad
elaide is approaching, to iuhale the odor ot the
mignionette when beautiful Claribella, tbe little
darling, is close at; haud, is only natural. But
all perfumes are not taken from flowers, alas!

"It has been kept in drawers fpr more than a
century, constantly throwing forth its odor,
without losing any appreciable portion ot its
weight. Musk is bad enough; but civet, dear
girls! have you ever thought of it? Givet is

power of tbe perfume must be, originally, I can
not imagine for "it requires to be diluted with a
thousand time its volumiua of spirits. It is not
romantic to smell like a musk deer or a civet
cat —but chachun a son gout."
Ambergris," that perfume so often alluded to
in the Arabian Nights, is of animal origin. Tha

of various other voracious fish, yield a consider

choose upon tbe subject, and connect it forever

The origin of the use of perfumes in the East
is of the most remote antiquity ; and still the O
rieutal sprinkles the departing guest witb rose

perfumes are much esteemed, ihey were origi

shaped boxes composed of alabaster. At the
present day a well-arranged toilette table is one
of the prettiest siglits in the world. Tbe tiny

John Randolph's Sarcasm.—Randolph's sar
casm was always withering, and sometimes his
very look was annihilating. The anecdotes
told of him are almost innumerable, and some
of them are, doubtless pure inventions. We
cannot vouch for the following, but it is charac
teristic of the man:
A gentleman once related to me an anecdote
which I have not seen in print. A member of
the lower House, from Virginia, had recently
died. With this gentleman Randolph was on
very friendly terms. His successor was elected
in part, as was said, from holding up the idea
that if elected he would "chastise John Ran
dolph iuto his senses." This braggart had been
in his seat but a few days when he sought to
redeem his pledge by making a furious attack
on the gentleman from Roanoke. He was in
in lull tide of angry declamation when the ob
ject of his abuse entered the House. On taking
his seat, he barely looked at the speaker, and
then began a hasty perusal of the newspapers
and documents on his desk. All expected a re
ply and rare sport, as a matter of course, but
they were, for that time, disappointed. Some
days after, however, wben the House, the lob
bies, and galleries were full, Randolph obtained
the floor to speak to some resolutions then uuder
consideration. In the course of his remarks, he
took occasion to speak in tbe most complimen
tary terms of his frieud, the deceased member,
whose seat was then occupied by his successor,
who wa3 a large portly man. With inimitable
elocution, which hushed the House iuto the most
perfect silence, he turned to the seat occupied
by ids rude antagonist, and said, with his bland
est and most scorching irony, "I allude to my
esteemed friend from Virginia, lately deceased,
and whose seat is still vacant /" As his incom
parable emphasis fell on the word "vacant," the
death like silence was dispelled by the most fu
mnltnous laughter defying all control, and in
which friends and foes slike joined. It was told
me as a fact by an intelligent informant, who
had it from one who professed to be personally
acquainted with the facts, that the effect of this
adroit inuendo was so killing to the principal
victim that he resigned his seat in the body iv
which he had so boldly proposed to chastise
John Randolph into his senses.
Waked up the wrong Passenger.—An a
mu*ing aif lir occurred uot many years ago, at a
fourth of July celebration in an interior town in
Pensylvania. Revolutionary veterans were be
coming very hard to find, and yet a procession
with no old soldier in it was not to be willingly
submitted to. An nonest old German of Revo
lutionary repute was discovered at the last
hour. An open carriage was assigned to him in
the programme, and a seat at the President's
right at the table. Wben pressed after dinner to
give his reminiscences of Washington his recol
lections were found to be rather indefinite.-—

Indian Hunting in California,
Indian hunting is no doubt very rare sport.—
It requires so much boldness to pick off a "bad
looking buck," unarmed though he be, except
with his wicked looks; it is such manly enter
tainment to shoot down squaws and picaninnies,
as they fly winged with terror, or huddle and
crouch with fear in a corner of a wigwam, that
really it seems wanton to put any hindrance in
the way of the valiant Rangers who enjoy that
sort of thing. ludian hunting makes brave men,
men of exquisite taste, and marvellously quick
ens the inventive faculty in those who practice
it. These points we fancy it no difficult matter
to prove from the documentary evidence on the
Indian wars lately transmitted by Governor
Downey to the assembly of our State.
Ist. It makes brave men. According to the
report of Lieut Dillon, Thos. Henley went over
to Eel river, one day last March, with some of
his employees and finding there some huts, sent
in an Indian to order the inhabitants to come
out, with the promise that they should not be
harmed. "Four bucks came out, but one of
them professed to be lame and unable to walk,
whereupon Mr. Henley either shot him or had
him shot. Mr. Heuley does not charge these In
dians with having stolen anything from him,
but says they were too near him, and he is a
fraid they will steal." In all the events of the
Pelopone;-ian war, is there a braver record tban
this of Mr. Henley f
Again: According to Major Johnson's report,
Col. T. J. Henly, late Superintendent of Indian
Affairs, turned out with some of the Round Val
ley settlers, one day last August, and killed e
leven Indians—sex mentioned—not because they
had stolen anything, but because Indians, gene
rally, will steal, and why should not these?—
Tbese brave comrades of Henley suffer immense
loss in having neither poet nor historian in at
tendance when they go dashing—a company of
fifty of them—into the presence of a short dozen
of shivering, starving, naked Diggers, wheu
their unerring rifles lay the "bucks" over at
a pop, and the scared squaws and frightened
children lie still to be brained without a protest
ing groan. History and poetry lose the thril
ling details of such spirit-stirring charges for
this neglect of Henley to take a poet or practiced
Brave Jarboe, too, up to August 12th had
killed 50—iucludiug, in one camp, according to
Lieutenant Johnson, four children, four women
and six men; but whether the latter were all
lame or seriously sick, does not appear. Brave
2ud. Indian-hunting cultivates the taste. —
Henley shot the lame Indian iv Eden Valley,
because "he looked like a bad Indian," aud he
did not want any such disagreeable looking
specimens around. Let bad looking Indiaus
take heed. None but your Apollos Belvidere
will be permitted about Eden Valley.
3rd. Indian-hunting stimulates the inventive
faculty. When the gallant attack has been made
and tbe victims of Christian vengeance strew the
ground, it is exceedingly desirable to have a
good excuse to make to the world, who igno
rantly may not share the sentiments of the val
iant volunteers who have turned so many wo
men and children iuto "food for worms." Col.
Heuley aud his worthy sons, after the massacre
at Eel River, produced a horse's ear aud two
tongues found in the raeheiia. The quickened
invention ot the Colonel construed these into
evidences enough that hi- victims had been
horse-stealers in their days.
But, on the other haud, it cannot be denied
that this manly game of Indian-hunting is some
what costly. It seems that the United States
troops find most of their employment in defend
ing the inoffensive Indians from being massa
cred. If they hear of any worthless whites
stealing a horse, they must hasten into the
neighborhood where the theft was committed, or
by that token a hunt will be raised to kill a score
or two of Diggers. If they hear of any violence
committed on the person of some pretty Indian
maid, the infantry must get in motion directly,
or the perpetrator of the infamous outrage gets
up a hunting party, devises some stock-stealing
story, and hastens to shoot down all to whom
the pretty maid might tell her wrongs.
True, nobody had lost a horse, nobody had
complained that his horse's tongue had been
plucked out; but where did the ear and tongues
come from if they had not been stolen ? It was
by the same reasoning that a shrewd physician
charged his patient with having eaten oysters,
when he found the shells under the bed, and his
brilliant student discovered that another patient
had been eating a horse, because he found a
saddle under his cot. At any rate it was etni
neutly sharp in the Colonel, and worthy a pro
fessioual Indian hunter, to discover so excellent
an apology for his mornings' work on Eel river,
for if the fatal ear aud tongues had not turned
up in time, the tender-hearted world might have
deemed his entertainment massacre, aud him, a
Lieut. Dillon says, as soon as the river gets
low enough he shall go down into Eden Valley
and try to get the Indians into the camp, "or
they will all be killed." Major Johnson was, at
the date of his report, endeavoring to get them
into the Reservation, feeling assured that it he
did not, they would be mercilessly exterminated.
The miserable wretches, iv their mountain fast

whites need no protection, and the heavy work
of the army is to protect the Indians from

For the Spectator.
Messrs. Editors: —Having indicated my pur
pose and object, in a communication to your pa
per of the 28th of February, in relation to the
candidates for the Judicial office of this Circuit,
it is with great relnctance I yield to the necessi
ty of diverging from the plan therein proposed.
The character of the communications, as pub
lished in your paper during the past few weeks,
i has created that cecessity. Since the appear
ance of the card of Mr. Fultz, announcing him a
candidate, there has been published in the Spec
tator, a number of peices ; some with a profu
sion of fairnes, but all plainly manifesting a de
sign to disparage bim for the office to which he
aspires. Iv addition, they di*close a malignity
in the writers, which for the sake of poor human
nature, I rejoice in being able to say, I have
rarely W nown equaled. Then to be silent, while
beholding a high toned and honorable man thus
assailed and tortured, would be assenting to his
iujury—a monstrous injustice. This I could
uever do ; hut, anxiously seeking to conform my
conduct to tbe requisition of the beautiful max
im : "To do unto others as I would have them,
under similar circumstances, to do unto me,"
I have resolved to defend Mr. Fultz to the ut
most of my ability against these assaults upon his
good name, snd his fitness for the office for which
he is a candidate. "Fiat justitia ruat ccelutn.".
One of the most brazen and reckless of tbese
communications, is .he piece signed "Z," in your
paper of the 28th of February. This writer's
malignacy to Mr. Fultz is hardly pretended to
be concealed, while his object is fully avowed.—
Uuless he has changed his name, this is not the
first effusion of this writer. Iv the Spectator ot
the 31st January he favored the community with
a specimen of his skill as a writer, and his abil
ity—or rather want of ability—to enlighten the
public mind on the Judiciary of the 12th Judi
cial Circuit; and thus most graciously offered
himself as a public instructor on that subject.—
If the people had have been as ignorant as he
appeared to suppose, even he ought to have
known that they were not blind, or that their
mental vision was not so obscured by stupid ig
norance as not to enable them to see a ray of
light. Light, when it exists, will dispel the
darkness. The reading of this piece not only
disclosed its absurdities, but clearly proved the
ignorance ot the writer, aud his utter want of
ability to enlighten the public mind on the sub
ject proposed. They looked for light but saw
not a ray, and thenceforth positively refused to
follow this blind guide. Has he not been in
formed of the decision of the people not to have
him as their instructor iv this matter ? If not,
some of his confidents should speedily inform
him, and thus prevent him from publicly expos
ing himself in future. If they had promptly
advised their friend to be silent, immediately af
ter Li*, effusion of the 31st January, the public
would hardly have had that of 28th February.
The improvident way in which his friends have
managed the matter, however, has, no donbt,
been tbe means of bringing this second effuaion
before the public.
The last communication I vow propose to ex
amine. The style is good, considering the great
faults of the piece. If all its characteristics be
taken together, however, they most clearly es
tablish the fact that the writer is too consequen
tial to be agreeable even to his most intimate
friends; has a large stock of vanity ; not much
common sense; a high opinion of his own intel
ligence, but a contempt for that ot the people;
is fond of writing for the newspapers, and de
lighted at seeing his piece in print. They fur
ther most conclusively prove the writer to be
very partial to Judge Thompson, but to have an
intense hatred for Mr. Fultz. To express the
idea in a tew words, they appear to prove him
to be one of those remarkable men found in al
most every community, always known by the
peculiar manifestations of their self importance,
such as their talking loudly ; their looking wise;
their smiliug significantly ; their showing a rest
less impatience and dissatisfaction at having the
correctness of their opinions questioned ; when
walking, their rearing back and strutting man
ner -, tt»_\r never-failing approbation of the o
piuions ot distinguished characters, right or
wrong; their willingness to serve that class in
almost any capacity ; their haughty, imperious
manner to interiors; and are commonly called
"Seueca Jims." It, would be presuming too
much for me to say, from the evidence before
me, that this writer is a "Seneca Jim," but I
must say, if he is not, that he must certainly be
his own dear brother.
If this be tbe impression which this writer's
communications have made on the public mind,
will be still expect the people to condemn Mr.
Fultz as unworthy of their confidence and unfit
tor tbe office to which he aspires, for no otber
reason than to gratify his own malignant feelings ?
But "Z" says he is a lawyer. lam glad he
has favored tbe public with this important in
formation : for surely no one would have even
suspected it from reading his pieces. I cannot
but think, yet, there must be some mistake a
bout it. Em may have read law a little, but
surely not enough to justify his pretensions of
being really a lawyer. I must insist that such
a lawyer could never command the confidence
of the public, even in the smallest case ; and I
venture to assert tbat this lawyer hardly ever
had a case. He writes more like a scrub par
ty politician; and without knowing, I will ven
ture to guess that he is a politician of that char
acter, having some small pension for his services.
He attacks Mr. Fultz's card with great fury;
because, as he says, Mr. Fultz, in his card, haa
done Judge Thompsou great injustice. After
reading this writer's wonderful philippic against
Mr. Fultz and his card, I got the card and read
it carefully, and "mirabile dictu /" I could not
find Judge Thompson's name even iv the whole
card. He says: "Mr. Fultz bas ventured to
charge his opponent with inefficiency and ne
glect of duty, such as, if continued, the wheels
uf justice, already retarded in their movement,
must soon cease to roll on." On looking for
this charge iv Mr. Fultz's card, I found this
wonderful writer had split and taken a part of
one ot the sentences of the card, and so arranged
it with his own language as to make it appear,
to the unobserving reader, a real charge by Mr.
Fuhz. Over this ingeniously arranged and al
leged charge of his own manntaciure, he argues,
loams and rages at Mr. Fultz with great indig
nation ; and, after having exhausted his fury, he
turns to Mr. Fultz in the kindest and most per
suasive manner, and asks him to be magnani
mous and withdraw the charge. Then he goes
on to quarrel with another part of a sentence in
Mr. Fultz's oard. Does this look like a lawyer?
He then explains the "Sleeping Docket"—and
such an explanation! May it not disturb the
shades of the illustrious Marsh .11! Does not
this writer know that there should be, properly,
three dockets of the Chancery Court?—the Rule
Docker, the Motion Docket, aud the Issue Dock
et. Does he not further know that there is auoth
er docket, called the "Sleeping Docket," in the
Chancery Court of Augusta ? Does he not know
that this "Sleeping Docket" embraces a large
number of cases, and that it has not been called
tor about thirty years? Does be not know that
this docket is unnecessary, and was created by
the arbitrary will of the Clerk, without any or
der of the Court on the subject ? This useless
arbitrary "Sleeping Docket," never called, is
manifestly the one which Mr. Fultz, in his card,
promises to wake up from its long sleep, and
have the cases composing it placed on the i**sne
docket, so as to arouse them from their sleep at
least twice a year, and see if they wanted any
attention. Cases allowed to sleep so long may
die; and I should not be surprised if many of
these cases are now dead, and thus beyond eyeD
the hope of revival. But what has caused the
hatred of "Z," and the ill-will of the others to
Mr. Fultz. It is thought that they are all law
yers. "Z" admits that he is one. One of the
writers says tbe lawyers are birds. I hope they
are of the clean kind. I suspect that Mr. Fultz's
offence against the lawyers is, that he has, by
his card, told "secrets out of school"—tbat he
has told the people what it never was intended
they should know—told them of that "Sleeping
Docket." In addition, O terrible to relate! he
has offered himself as a candidate for the Judg
ship, and says, it elected, he will clear the dock
et, even if he has to sit the whole year to accom
plish it. Junius.
