The following very liberal, and christan
like remarks ou the singe,are coped from the
writings of Dector Aikin the poet, and the
catcher of buiterilios for the lud.ux,
*““Remarks en the Theatre.—The busincss
of a play-actor wasdisgraceful at pagan Roie:
there hie woe denied the rght of ciizensivp.
On this po.nt, Roussean, who, it is well known,
was sulliciently imworal and anti-chrisiian to
be excwpt from the charge of prej dice
aguinst the theatre. He observes, that the
‘situation of an acter is a state of licentiousness
“and bad morals; that the wen are abandoned
to disorder, that the women lead a scandalous
lite; that tiie one and the other, at once ava
ricious and profuse, ever overwlelmed with
dobt, and ever prodigal are a® unrestrained in
therr dss'pation, as they are void of scruple e
recpect 10 the means of providing forit. Inall
countries, their profession 1 dwhonorabie;
those wlo exercise it are every; wlere con
temned; even at Paris, where they aie treat
sd with more consideration and where their
condust is beiter than at any other place, u
sober citizen would lear to be upon teras of
atrnacy with the same actors who miay be
~ech every day at the tables of the great. This
coutempt s sirongest whetever the, manners
re the most pure; and there are couniries of
nnocence and sunplicity, where the trade ot
n actor s held almost in horror, * Theso,”’
«ays this celebrated philosoplier, ““are incon
estible fucts, Yoa will say they result only
rom prejudices —1 agree to it but these pre
judices bemg cniversal, we mnst scek for a
miversal cavse—and I do not see where we
an find it, except in the protession itself.”
Remanxs, The splenetic writings of Rous
seau, a man who waas sceuted by the church,
re thus adJduced, 10 prove that actors, are of
I people, the most infumous and diabolical,
ind bis writings are thus made use of by men,
who professed to Lold him in abliorrence, and
‘9 look upon him, us a living curse to chris
tianity, Sach sentiments, as are here imputed
to Roussean, were never entertaned by him;
but were written in a moment of indignation,
and issued”o revenge himseli at the hands of
a famous Puarisian actor, who had treated
him discourteously and carelessly.
But whether they were his sentiments or
not they are not just, or liberul, they uroe}
founded on false provmises, and are untrue,
With actions, as with all other classes of soci
ety, there are to be found merwr of vicious hab
its and bad princizles, but they are not more
numerous in that profession, than in any oth
er. There are thousands of acters, who in all
the relations of life, deport theinselves with
great propriety, and are as exemplary in their
habits and walks in life, as other persons, and
n the discharge of all the duties due to the
world - and in the performance of the noble
charities, are not eclipsed by those who con
temnn them for their profession, and would pro
voke thein, because they lubor for their living
on the stage.
Such s weeping denunciations, as those con
tained in the extract from Doctor Aikin,
ghould not be countenanced or received by the
world, for they are disreputable to all who en
tertain them, and are destitwte of all the mor
al and christian charities. We do not mean to
deny that there are vile persons who tread the
. i
stage, and who are not only a disgrace to so
ciety, but to the profossion; but to the asser
tion that #hiey are all so, we oppose an une
quivocal denizl, and fur ourselves cansay, that
we have found among the disciples of the dra
i, as many exemplary characters, as we have
among those, who behold in a Theatre, the
very hiut bed and focus of crime.

“ More Fighting. - The game of knock
down and drag out, was pliyed ol in high
style last weel in Tuseunba, Dorks and ps- |
tols were deawn and fard to be freely used,
nany wounds intheted, but the only serious in

a pstol shotg at first the wound was supposed
1o be mortil, but we have since heard that he
ig on the recovery. The particalars of this
ud'rv_v are not given in the Tuscunmbia papers
but om a notice publshed, announcing the
cessation of hostilities between Henry 8, oote
wnd friends, and the fimily of Winsion and
fviends, we suppose that all diYerences as to
them are put to resty and 1t s lughly probable
that a detall of the particulars attending the
lite vilir, is Lept out of the public prints un
der the expectation that a geveral recone:lin
ton among the parties will be eflfected. In
deed, it istima that the tomhawlk and sealp
ing hn fe should be laid asmide. It was only
lust week that we were reprobating similar
procoedings rear Natehes, wheien two men
were killed and several wounded, Soch

Wo are glad to find that eae of the Alibama
papera, have had the covrage to speak inopen
and unequivecal termas of dieapprobaton and
disgust, of the shamefil practice of fighiing,
which has too long prevailed in that and the

The Captain's siturtion is certainly an un
pleasant one, and we hope, that arresting the
attention of those who male magnificent dona
tions to Foreign Missionary Soceties, he will
be relieved. Asto the correctness or incor
reetness of the Captain’s Theory, we know
nothing; but from what we have heard con
cerning it, by leetvres @clivered, it certainly
wears a very plausible aspect, and its author
ought »ot to langwsh and die for wane, IPlhi
losophiers have examined his theory, and pro
nounced in favor of it; and « young man, Mr.
Reynolds, a pupil of the Captain’s is now lee
