exalt; high .must be the character
which such impcrtinenfcc will not de
grade. Inexcusable therefore, must
be the practice which has neither
reason nor passion to support 1t.
The drunkard has bis cups; the sen
sualist, his mistress; the satiiist, his
revenge; the ambitious man, his pre-
ferment the miser his gold; but the
common swearer has nothing;, he U
a fool at large ; sells bis soul for nought,
and drudges in the service of the devil
gratis. Swearing is void of all plea;
It, is not the native offspring of the
soul, nor interw oven with the texture
of the boby, nor any how allied to our

son jcxpresses it, "though some men
pour outoalhsasifthey were natural,
yet no man was ever born a swear

a low and paltry custom, picked up
by low and 'paltry spirits, who have
no sense of honor, ho regard to dece.v

rhassody of nonsense to supply the
vaerncy of good sense .. Hence the

Why not dispose of political beggars

as the Pest Office does for mail con

Gwin -You are mistaken, Howard
in supposing that I have farnjsbcd

Tucker If ever I go to Ilagan s

constitutionally damned. He not on
