_____ -TOLERATION.
Thte iB a principle which U in every body's
month Wo never tire of admiring ourselves
and the ag« ** live in. on account of it# Hba
ral and tobraut spirit. When wo think of
Urmcr day* and former moil, when we think
cf the rack, the fire, tho gibbet, we can scarce
ly credit the fact that this is the same world,
that we are of the same race We stand in
imagination in the dungoons and the aiupdhe
atre where the esrly Christians were rent by
by beast* scarcely less savage than their per
secutors ; or wo beheld them ascending, froun
the stake, in a chariot of fire to the skies; or,
il a later age we tind tho (yhurch itself, learn
mgno wisdom from its own bitter experience,
picking from the earth tho weapons of perse
cution which had fallen from its own breast,
and with unnatural hate, using them against
ber own children We dance our eyes in
mingled amazement ai*d horror, over tho
♦eclewaytical and civil Liwtory of the past, in
which Romans, Greeks and Protestants, in
iihe uame of tho Gospel, o! Peace and
Korgivem*?, consigned each other's bodies
to the flames for the goodof their souls ; in
which cavalier anil rouodhead settled points
of polemics at the point of the sword, and Pa
rituns flying to anew continent for conscience
sake, signalu' ' heir accession to power, by
burring witch and hanging quakers, in
which Whigs and Tories hunted each other
to the death, and howled like sav age wolves
ever the Wood that trickled from tho block.
That was no doubt an uncomfortable age to
live in, cud we do well to bo thankful that we
were born in an era of greater humanity and
toleration.
But, after all, the nr.turc of man is uncbang- j
ed, and even in this libera! ago and country, j
we have by no means arrived at the highest
pitch of toleration and charity. We are
tree to think as wo please in politicß and re
ligion, and we are equally free to denounce
and abuse all who differ from us in opinion.
There are few men who do not avail them
selves of both privileges to the extent ol" their
capacity. Mankind are just as narrow, sclf
oplniated, unwilling to make allowances for
the errors and faults of each other as they
ever were. They are not only certain of their
own infallibility of opinion, but they do not
believe that other men are as sincere in their
convictions as themselves. It is true, they
may not use the thumb-screw or the rack
to give potency to their arguments, but there
ig one weapon which thoy may use, and which
is capable of more mischief than all the en
gines of the inquisition. This is the tongue,
a thing which is described in Holy Writ as
an "unruly evil, full of deadly poison, set on
lire of Hell." The bodycannntbe harmed
in these times, but the reputation of the best
man living can be burned to death, on a slow
fire. Political opponents can no longer send
each other to prison or the scaffold, but be
hold how they butcher each other's charac
ter in the public prints. It is almost impos
sible in these days, famous for charity
and toleration, for the public to form a cor
rect opinion of the talents and character of
any leading public man. Many a sensitive
and high minded statesmen would prefertoeuf
fer from the most infernal machine of physi
cal torture rather than to have his goad name
crushed beneath the massive weight vf the
press. j
We wish it could be said with truth that
there is more toleration in the religions than
ttie political world. Sectarian hostility is of-
quite as deep, if not as noisy, as political
strife. Strange that men cannot make allow
ances for difference of education, habits,
tatses, and of intellectual and moral organi
sation ! It is clear that ail parties in politics
and theology cannot be right; but it is equal- 1
ly evident that all are sincere, and therefore ,
entitled to the forbearance and toleration oi
all. !
SUICIDE.
It is stated that more suicides occur ia > T i<?w i
England, than in all tho rest of th e p p j| e j
States. We know not how ¥ec J ncik tb > 8
statement with the »^ cowled . ed shrewdness
and good t0 Bay nothing of the good
of brother Jonathan.
waß a very curious work once writ-
Yen on "The Anatomy of Suicide," by P.
Wins Vow, an Englishman. We presume it
was written in dismal weather, though
the title pag e does not eay so. It contains
some interesting and- curious facts. In
stances ar-5 given of suicide among the Greeks
and Romans, and extracts from their laws
upon the same subject. Under most circum
stances* they stigmatized it as Infamous. In
some parts of the Roman empire, the magis
trate had the power of granting, or refusing
permission to commit suicide. The laws of
Thebes deprived the suicide of funeral rites.
In Athens, his hand was cut off from the body
aad buried apart from tt. The law said, "the
hand was a traitorto the body." Plato, how
ever, urged persons conscious of crimeg,
•which society had no adequate means of pun
ishing, to relieve mankind of their presence
by suicide. But this did not express the gen
tral sentiment of antiquity. Its feelings were
more correctly represented by Virgil, who
regards suicides as fools or effeminate. lie
thus speaks of them in the diffuse but spirited
translation of Dryden.
"The next in place and puniehmsnt are iney
Who prodigally throw their live* away;
Koole, who repining at their wretched state,
And loathing auxioun lite, suborn their iaU»;
With late repentance now they would retrieve
The bodies they forsook, and with to live,
Their pains and poverty desire to bear,
To view the light ol heaver, and breathe the vital
air.
But late forbid*, the Stygian floods oppow;
And wtth nine circling t&rcams the captive souls
iackne,"
Napoleon often expressed himself strongly
against suicides. "If Marcus," said he, "had
slain himnolf in the marshes of Minturntr,
he never would have stood the seventh time
for consul " On another occasion he said,
•'What claim can that man have to courage,
who trembles at the frowns of fortune?" A
grenadier having shot himself for love, and
another following the example, Napoleon,
fearing the folly should become contagious,
issued this order of th*. day:
"The grenadier Grablin ha? committed sui
cide from a disappointment in love; ho w.m,
In other respects, a worthy man. This is tho;
second event of the kind that has happened
in this corps within a month. The first con
sol directs that it'shxll be notified in the order
of the day of the guard, that a sohiier ought
to know how to of brooms the grief and niu
laotJbftiy of his passion*, that thurc L> aa much
.m
trueoonragein boating ment*lafflifltk»n>«i*-
fatty, M in remaining unmoved under the fire
of a battery. To abaodcm wWf to grief,
without resulting, and to kill oorself in order
to csoapo from it, in like abandoning the field
Bewleree."
Tho order had tho desired effect, and the
apprehended epidemic was stayed.
Wo wish we had room for some of the many
extraordinary cases recorded by Window.
They would tnliven our reader* in dull wea
ther. We can only find room for the follow
ing:
"The case ot a man is recorded in a French
paper, who burnt with ono of tho strongest
nations of which we ever heard an account-
Ilia mistress having proved unfaithful to him,
ho willed upoa his servant, informed him that
it was his intention to kill himself, and re
quested that, after his death, bo would make
a candle of his fat, and carry it, lighted, to his
mistress, lie then wrote a letter, in which
bo told her that as he had long burnt for her,
she might now see that his flames were real;
•or the candle by which she read thfl HOtfi,
was composed of p<vrt of his miserable body.
Aftor this he committed suicide."
Here was a more sensible fellow, an Eng
lishman, who wished to get up a subscrip
tion:
"An Englishman advertised extensively,
that he would, on a c-ertain day, put himself
to death Ln Covert Garden, for tbo benefit of
his wife and family. Tickets of admission a
guinea each."
Bo mucfi for suicide. Americans, generally,
are too smart to indulge in such nonsense.—
Political suicide is the only self murder
which is common in this country, and even
that is always involuntary.

beside? the President's Message.

sity of determining the precise route lor the Coving,

way of the Jack me and Greenbrier rivers.
The Mail, in announcing the election of Lynn
Boyd as Speaker of the Ilouse at Washington, says
he has never distinguished himself in any way ex.

in conclusion the Me.il says the Administration has

will " hold its own" all the way through Congress,
like the effect of Santa Anna's admission into Mexi.

The Enquirer briefly comment* on the Presi.
dent's Mew-age. Wftextract a portion ofits com
plimentary remarks:
But, far above any mere excellence of rhetoric,
will the country prize and applaud the patriotic sen
timent and cound doctrines of this incomparable
paper. Since Madison left the Executive Mansion,
there has beon no such President's Message given
to the country. TBe old State Rights School have
now a representative and a champion in the Federal
Executive, and President Pierce speaks the lan
guage familiar to the Virginia Democracy since
Jefferson and Madkon first vindicated the rights of
the sovereign States.
The Enquirtr has also an article on " The Com
promise and the Baltimore Platform," showing tha 1
the assertion that the Baltimore Convention pro*
nouncedjudgmentonthc Compromise measures is
a misrepresentation of fact.
The Bulletin notice; the cheif points in the Presi
dent's Message. It also calls attention to the condi
tion of our State currency, as urred by Gov. John
son, and trusts that the Legislature will at an early
day adopt the suggoetiou, and make one more effort
at least to relieve the sHate of iw shinplorter cur.
