serviceable. Whother this be the case
or not, we can s fely assert obo thing.
that the children ofthe heroes and mar
tyrs of '76, never will permit the purity
ot their national garment to be stained,
by pursuing a course ol cringing or
compromise. An attempt to enforce in
the mildest and most peaceable manner
any of tneiprovixions of this despotic en
actment, would immediately rekindle
those sacred fires, which burned so
clearly and brightly on the altars of our
forefathers. A rational declaration of

pressed Canadas, would follow the first

question at as early a date as possible.

Messrs Editors. Yoar correspon
dent "A Lover, feo.'of last week, well
might anticipate that a communication,
whose design eould be no other than to
abuse his neighbor, should cause you
to 'Stare.' He appears, just at this
lime,-to have an unconscious regard for
'Tho religious world,' 'Especially' that
part In this section of the vineyard.'
His abhorrence to 'Bigotry and preju
dice,' is portrayed in characters not lo
be misune'erstood. Indeed, one would
be led to believe,' in reading hia com
munication, that all those gross and
ruder pas6ions of the human heart, 'Ex

should be insulted with such scenes.
We would advise, a removal from among
them, or to reinstate the sublime prin

rection. And 'where' ia asked by this
pious Scribe, 'do these evil propensities

tells you with.the gravity of a Monk,
"From the pulpit,' yea, "From tht sa

so 'Unchristian, uncourteous, and un

out, 'O Shame! shame!!' and might
