PARTY VIOLENCE. When Daniel Webster was drawing near the close of bis existence he expressed deep regret, it is said, at the severe sarcasms which | he had used towards bis political opponents. This is a deeply affecting fact, and by no means, we believe, an uncommon one. \\ e would that the lesson which it reads were often heeded. For we feel sure that there are many of our contemporaries who will yet bit terly repent of the harsh language which they are in the constant habit of using with re gard to their opponents. The reasons why they should repeut of it are, that it has a tendency to cootirm an antagonist in the evil courses or opinions for which he is attacked. It, moreover, often severely and wrongfully wounds the feelings of the party attacked. The habit of using this kind of language fre quently leads the user to be severely unjust and unmerciful towards those who are not really opponents, either of his person or his opinion. We have knowu inoffensive parties asking innocent questions, through influen tial papers in this city, to get answers that have made a mere spectator’s blood boil with indignation. The custom, too, to which wo allude, causes strifes, and hatreds, and rank lings of heart that do more evil, and prevent more good than its effectors can ever com pensate in their life-times. It is also in very bad-taste. Boys and uncultivated men may rejoice in sarcasm, but men of the high est refinement are apt to look back with disgust at any exercises of their own in that line. AN EDITOR IN COURT. The London Times has been mulcted in damages for$2,000for a libel upon one Smith, an agent of an exteosive tailoring establish ment. During the war, this man went to the Crimea to “drum” for the tirin, and got iuto a drunken row*. Under the rules of mil itary discipline he w as put under arrest, and in the morning was brought up to receive tho customary Hogging awarded to such delin quents. The limes correspondent told tlio story, told the name of the Hrui whom Smith represented, and although the culprit’s name was not mentioned, bis identity was so luliv established that he had no peace ol his lile at Balaklava, where it happened, nor at Scutari, Constantinople, or at (iibraltar or London, where everybody pointed at him and asked how his Hogging agreed with his con stitution. To ease his wounded letdiugs, the Times published a retraction ol the corre* pondent’ti statement, but the Jury found that this apology waaneither “timely nor satislae torv,”aod gave averdictfor plaintiffforS‘200f(. It appeara frooi the testimony iu the can**, that the flogging waa really not inflicted, but the drunkenness waa true. A noticeable point in the evidence io the case is that a witness swore that he could not gain access to the ed itor of the Times to demand satisfaction; the editor, he was told, “could only be approach ed by letter." With our namesakes of New York, we agree that American editors would consider it a great blessing it a similar rule prevailed on this side of the waves.— Cincin nati Times. 4^- A Card to tlxe L»*dle».--Dr J.
