promptings of a caidindl 'reicile in our
Republican code of politisil ethics, and

n their calculation: T6e are also to be
nund in every walk oflife, pubrfd a'd p i
RaIO. Wealth cannot destroy the good
irimciple in some, nor elevated ptiblic vta
ions in others. A illustration is befl'r
is; Mr. Buchanan of Pennsylvaad, re
ently, it appears, addressed a lett'e to
he editor of the Newark Post, aothoriitng
'imt to contradict some statement made at
hat place prejudicial to his character.
What was said against him we know not,
ior have we seen his letter, but from the
ollowing extract, which we find in a do
etmporary journal, it ivould appear that he
:ad Ien charged with saying or doing
omething disparaging to the character,
ind prejudicial to the interests of the me
:banics. He says sd
" S fa1r from having ever said or thougl't
tny thing to the prejudice of mechanics,
)o of my nearest and clearest relatives,
ipon my urgent advice, was boudd an up
irentice to a trade, and is at the presedt

ei of choice, not necessity. I haVe thus
>fl'rded the strongest practical eviddijee of
he estimatioh in which I hold tfiii hi'ghly
neritorious class of 6r fellow citizens."
