Perhaps there is no profession in the world
that is assailed more frequedtly than that of
the Law. It is quite common to hear Law
yers denounced as heartless and mercenary
-as always eager for the "main chance"
never disiterested-never generous. We
regard this as grossly unjust to the 'profes
sion. We happen to have a pretty exten
sive acquaintance with the "gentlemen of
the bag-and while we are bound to con
fess that among them are a few who are a
disgrace alike to the profession and the race,
the majority are fraiXlamanly,hightninded and
honorable-gentlemen, in the true sense of
the phrase-men who would -scorn to take
an undue advantage, and whose hearts are
"as open as the day to melting charity.'? Be.
low we give an illustration. 'T he case, more
over, is by no means a rare one:-"A few
days since (says one of our cotemporaries)
a case of extreme hardship was brought to
the notice of Judge King. A young girl
was convicted of the larceny of a sum ofmio.
ney under peculiar 'circumstances. Nearly:
two years since a boarder in her father's
house missed a small sum -of moniy out of
his-trunk, which she confessed to have taken
under the supposition that it belonged to her
father. The parents of. the defendant -had
promised to restore the property, but were
prevented mst piobably from doing so in
consequence of their poverty. A short time
since the girl was married to a respectable
young man, when the prosecutor commen.
ced proceedings against her. The mother
of the g;rl was forced to appear against her
in the performance of a sacred but painful
duty, and it was most likely her testimony
that influenced the jury in rendering a ver
dict of guilty.
- "Judge King said that lie land reflected
deeply upon the case, and had determited
upon passing a nominal sentence, believing
that the ends of public justice would be bet
ter satisfied than if the severity of the law
were inflicted upon her. lie then decreed
that she pay a fine of one cent, restore the
property, and undergo twenty four hours'
imprisonment. A member of the har arose
and said, thait lie was sure that his brethren
around him would raise the money on the
spot, if the Court would withhold its seni
tence for the present. The sum was about
850, and the whole of if was in the space oi
three miqutes obta ned-the olicers of the
Coninionwealth throwing ofF their costs at
the same time. After the nioney had beena
thus raised the prosecutor stopped forward,
and positively refused to touch a penny of
the money, and desired that the utmost leni
enc~y be extended to the unfortunate prison

TOMI PAINE'S BONES.
The fate that has befallen this u nhappy
man (Thomas Paine, the Infidel,) is both
curiotis and wondp ul-the sanctuary of the
grave not even ha o1g been granted to him
for a restin place. Mr Paine died about
the year 18* a little distance frm New
York city, in WVestchester country, if we are
not mistaken. The scene gt-his death -bed,
which was horrid; has ofteni been described.
He could not; dared not be left alone for a
mocment. H~e died at the house of a brothei
infidel, and; a grave being denied him in-any
consecrated spot, his friends buried him, wvithL
out ceremony beside a fence on his farm
A number of years after, an Fnglishtiidn; an
ardent admiier and follower, dismnterred hia
sheleton, and carrying it to England, kept it
as a sacred reli'e m his house. At that time
he was possesed 'of immense wealth, but in a
few years he became a batakrupt, and died.
His effects, having been seized by his credi.
ters, were sold according to law, and among
othqraarticles of house-hold furniture and ap.
:p'~ 'Ton Paine's bones were put up at
pa lnT auction, and sold to a wealthy amateua
andiburiosity hunter for the- sum of forty
ourid. Within the cabinet of this gentle.
man, in company with many other curiosi.
- ties, the bones of Tom Paine are nosv de.
'jxited-a warning and example that wvher
the. wicked dieth their expectations shall
yerish. The splendid talents 'and educatior
of Mr. Paine, if exerted in a better cause,
would'have merited and' ensured for him a
diff'erent fate. We derive this aceount fromr
