BE GENTLEMEN AT HOME.
There are few families, we imagine, any
w here, in which love is not abused as furnish
ing a lirenso for impoliteness. A husband,
lather, brother, will bp**uk harsh wrords to
those whom he loves the best, and those who
h»ve him be»t, simply because the security ot
love and family pride keeps him from getting
bis head broken. It is a shame that a man
will speak more impolitely, at times, to his
wife or sister, than he would to auy other fe
male, except a low and vicious one. U is
thus tliut the honest affections of man’s na
ture prove to be a weaker protection to woman
in the family circles than the restraints of so
ciety, and that a woman usually is indebted
for the kindest politeness of life, to those not
belongingto her own household. 1 hese thiogs
ought not to he. The man, who, because it
will not la? resented, indicts his spleen and
bad temper upon those ol his hearth-stone, is
a small coward, and a very mean man.—
Kind words are circulating mediums between
true gentlemen and ladies at home, and no
polish exhibited in s< ciety can atone for the
harsh lauguage and disrespectful treatment
too olten indulged in between those bouod
together by God's own ties of blood, and the
still more sacred Ik uds of conjugal love.—
