A few more words about Noah Web
ster and I will leave him. That he was
reat, none will deny. That he was a
profound and energetic scholar, needs no
proof but his works. It is not generally
known, however, by those who in
manner worship his memory, that he al
lowed a good portion of his otherwise
valuable time to bo wasted in literary
folly into which he was led hy his am
bition for fame and an over-estimate of
his intltience. I allude to the time when
he taught (and practiced.too,) that words
should be spelt as they arc pronounced.
Here is an extract from the preface of a
volume of Essays written by him Mid

haz been spent which I do not regret, anil
much censure incurred which my hart

The rattle and copperhead, the most
deadly, arc quite common, and numbers
have been killed this spring and summer.
The cotton mouth, black red-belly, blow,
ing viper, moccasin and spreading adder
are also venomous and dangerous, in fact,
deadly. The black, chicken, cow, garter,
house, ground and greeu snakes arc met
with in every direction, and as they arc
not considered poisonous, are seldom
killed. Few old farmers will not kill the
black snake especially the racer as it
is considered the inveterate enemy of ven

which they will attack at every opportu

strength of pressure.
