No man who habitually uses the
gift of speech to dishonor the name
of Him who bestowed :tcan right
full claim from ci ty the respect
and (OiiMderation due to a Christian
gentleman. Hie vice of swearing is-.
however so common, that were in
men who indulge in it shunned and
denounced by all who abstain from
it, there would unquestionably, be a
very large majority of the pro
scribed black sheep over the Be

Few v S ir fc i' t.f. .'ty f f blasphemy
ore hardly enough to defend it J he
vil of the habit is confessed by
thousands who are addicted to it,
and they endeavor to excuse a prac
tice which the do not attempt to
justify, by saying that it is involun
tarythat they would bo glad to
abandon it, but cannot This is u
mistake. Any badhabit may be
overcome ty persistent watchfulness
and a resolute will.
Profane swearing is a vice as an
cient as it is odious It was proba
bly us great a nuisance in Jerusalem
two thousand years ago as it is in
New York to day. In the Mostiie
ritual judicial oaths-were proscribed
and heavy penalties attached to per
jrr . . But in process ot time the so
lernmtyof an oath was disregarded
and "the chosen, peoplo" began to
swear, conveisationally, . by the
earth, the hcavene, the stars, their
heads, and even by their eyes nn
limb, as vulgar, ruffians do now. In
vain the priesthood fern u:'ed them.
They went on from bad to worse
until the practice became so gen
eral that the Founder of Christianity
found it necessary to admonish his
disciples on the subject, and to re
strict them in their colloquial asser
tions and disclaimers to "yea" and
'tl f We have not seen; anything more
beautiful than the following from the
pen of George D. Prentice:
"Thero is but a breath of air and a
betof the heart betwixt this world
and the next. And in the brief in-.
f terval of painful and awul suspense,
while we feel that drath is present
'with us, that we are powerless, and
he till powerful, and the faint pulsa
tion here is but. the prelude of end-
less life hereafter, we feel in the
midst of the stunning calamity about
-to befall us, the earth has no com
pensating good to mitigate the se
verity of our loss. But there is no
grief withoot some beneficent pro
vision to soften its intensencss.
When the good and lovely die the
memory of their fcood deeds, like
' the moonbeam on the etoimy sea,
lights up our darkened hearts, and
lends to the surrounding gloom a
beauty ho sad, so sweet, that he
would not, if he could, dispel tho
darknet.8 that environs it "

LETJ U6T1CE TAKE ITS COU USE
Callieott, Collector of Internal
Revenue fur the Brooklyn District,
N y.t and his Deputy, Allen, con
victed of complicity in the whisky
frauds upon the revenue, were sen
lenced last t nday, and on J uesuay ,
together all Col hn right, a trim
it ml of the same clai8, commuted
to the State Prison . at Albany
These men held respective posi
tions in society, and their sentence
writ a terrible stroke to them and
their friends. Rut their conviction
and committal is . a vindication of
the lawns' vindication' touch
needed, for it bad come to be be
lieved that the national govern
men l might bo defrauded of millions
with immunity. The money of the
whisky ring had apparently become
omnipotent enough to defeat all the
ends of justice
These convictions and sentences
may have a healthy effect in 1 deter
ring ; other swindlers; since the
may eathcr from it that it is just as
criminal to defraud the government
as it is to rob a dank or burn a
church. If President Johnson does
not interfere with his pardoning
power, the government may 8ive
hundreds ;f thousands of dollars by
the action ol the United States Cir
cuit Court of Brooklyn. Press and
The Government of the United
Mates owed, on the 1st inst., over
Twenty-MX Hundred and roi ty three
Millions of Dollars, less One Hundred
and llurty three Millions in its
Treasury, leaving its net -indebtedness
Two Thousand Five Hundred
, nd Ten Millions of Dollars. The in
lire ion this Deot is very nearly
U,e Hundred and Fifty "illions per
an. u n, or fully Twelve Millions per
month. Our Pension li.-t culls for
over Thirty Millions per annum, or
nearly Three Millions per mouth

Three lluinlred Aldiions per annum.
Tho cry tor a reduction of taxes is
very general and eager, arid Con
gress defers to it with ulaciity. The
Cotton ttx has ben repealed, blot
ting out Twenty Millions of income.
The tax on Manufactures followed,
wiping out Sixty, Millions. Further
reduction? at' uholitioiis of imposts
end excise u,ro agitated and strongly
supported. Whither do wo tend?
,'lho reduction of our Debt has
ceased. The last report adds Ten
Millions to its total; and while thi
is probably factitious, it is clear that
there has been no diminution since
the 1st of January
'J ho reserve oi coin in the Treas
ury has already begun to decline
It has exceeded Uiw Hundred Mil
lions net; it is now but Seventy Mil
lions in excess of the outstanding
Gold Certificates. This is to be
drawn down dimctly by the pay
ment cf Eight Millions of Mexican
War Debt, Thirty Millions of Inter
est, and (probably) Seven Millions
of purchase money tor Aliaska. It
is not probable that there will be
Fifty Millions of coin in the Treas
ury on the 4th of July next above
the amount deposited there by pri
vato owners and balanced iy Gold
Certificates of ' Deposit "And it is
morully certain that the Debt will
be heavier four months hence than it
How is it, then, that Members of
Ct ngress can be found to vote twenty
per cent, extra as "as additional com
j eiisation" or bounty to all the civil
employes of the Government nsiding
or working in Washington City;
That is to say: every clerk or other
person whose regular pay is $2,000
per annum is to receive, lor the year
ending with this month, 82,400; and
so of all who receive less than 00i,
or more, if the regular pay does not
exceed 2.600 How can trustees ot
this heavily taxed and deeply em
barrassed pooplo vote to squander
their money this recklessly?
We will take our own trade as an

more satisfictori'y deinonsrtated
