I CARD M.AVtXG
; Is getting to be a great anl growing evil iu
! all our towns, villages and country places.
Men of refinement, tste and cultivation,
; hesitate not at the thre-shhold of this mon
I ster vice, but boldly enter into tbe inner
j circle, where betting, hign and low go on,
there, they aie enticed to piay, lirsi for
amusement, then risk on a dune, just to
' make the saint interesting; lose a dollar or
two, aud then push on to make up tbe loss
es. Soou Oct higher, lose more heavily, re
' sort to tne drinking saloon for comfort, and
: by t his lime are on the inclined plane that
' leuds lo wreck and ruin. Not more surely
Is the fooiish advent urer, who tries ins
strenatb iu tliecurreuof Niagaia's whirlinix
i waters doomed to tles'ruction than the
I young mau who foolishly aud madly ven
l lures iuto the unhallowed precincts of a
gambling bell aud indulges only a lit.ic;
whether that gambling be carried on lit the
: gilded liai.s and bauuts of fasnionable
p. aces of amusement, or in the retired.oul ol
Ihe way places, where llioao not inured to
: such scenes would shrink from the gaze til
: Hie world, it matters not. The evil is the
same, toe down ward road to ruin JUst us
! easv, and certain, and your only hope,
, young man, is to break the fetters before
' you tire firmly bound; retrace your Mcps,
I resot ve never to throw another card and
never again be found with those, wiio, how
lever bouorabie In all other matters, and 1 ti
; other places, yet eve, feel justified in cheat
ing aud swindling, because this is tne ccn
era! rule of action in such place. Not long
: since, a gentleman, who lor convenience,
i we will call .lake, was detected by Col. P.. in
; gross ciiealiu at the card table. Tue Coio-
uel, who is a man of courtly manners aud
i highly honorable in ail his dealings, ad
i ministered a withering rebuke, and told
! him lie was no longer worthy of his friei.d
! ship. Jake replied, "Col. 1., I have never
looketl tdi card playing for money as an
Honorable business, and as such lelt, justi
fied in dealiug witu you and others, j.ist as I
exiiected any of you lo deal with tne." Tbe
Col. replied: ''Weil, Jake, old fellow, you
are not so tar wrong alter all, and I accept
your criticism, as a righteous judgment on
the evils of the card table."

it rather unkind in any one to criticise a

the simple elements of his Mother Tongue,
urging the plea. t'Unklnd to criticise a gen

the oharge implied in the word "genlle

of intelligence has never reached yet the
benighted cavities of bis head, save through
bis ears, tlie capacity of which I will not call
into question, at least so I judge from the
way he spells "iutoiogate speach," "nats,"

insist 011 sending it, as I am charitable by
nature, and sin surrounded by ten year old
children which could teach me that such
expressions as, "to just thluk," (the sign of
the Intiuitive mood separated from its stem

better constructed by the animal he person -fles,

Stayed there until 3, and then goi aboard

young lady, awaiting our ai rival. We start

(Saturuay) the protracted meeting com
menced at Salem. The Hev. Mr. Turner

Maury would preach ou Suuilay. When the !
hour tor chuich came, his o:d friends and
admirers "swarmed" in, and ill church
would not hold tuem. He preached that
night and the next day preached lu a.l
Ave sermons, and I don't think I was ever
at a I letter meeting than was at Salem. On
Thursday he preached bis last sermon aud
bid farewell. We then left the hospiiaole

As for the young ladies, they are perftrl

any where under tne sun. The young man
who has the good iorluue lo get one ol them
can say he has a Jewel indeed. We also met
Miss C. S., who is as lovely and as sweet as
a pink. It was witu great reluctance we
left "old Salem," and, lodetd, to tell the
truth, tbe writer did not get away as be
came he left something behind, it. wusu't
his baggage by no means; but Irom the
feelings he's undergone, thinks a good por
