Do THYSELF NO HARM. The Ncict
of last week, under the caption ol
"County Auditors," while venting
its spleen upon our State Treasurer
made the following, remarks, wbicl

a reflecting sense : " We say to th?
General Assembly, put the seal o
your condemnation upon those whe
have damned us by their thievery
and if that doesn't stop them, let in
all come together and break theil
durned infernal necks 1" If the Newt
is absolutely bent upon such a suicida
policy it is the duty of all gcod citi
zens to submit with resignation.
