future period and shall now therefore content our selves with that though there are clauses in it we trust may be improved when it goes into a yet we should be sorry to see so deter mined an opposition made to as at present is To after an attentive consideration the the general benefit promised by the measure very far exceeds the probable effect of what may be objectionable in its detail

moral effects from the most solemn services We think it clear that either all laws protecting the observance of the Sabbath ought to be or Sunday papers ought to be The evil is iccome so so that the noninterference of the Legislature may soon be considered as its public and thus the guilt of individuals be trans ferred to swell the fearful amount of what properly national It has been that the reason of the opposition of many of the religious public to Sunday their being generally in opposition to Government Many of them however usually defend the measures of But we arc is not the reason

state of entire freedom all On the contrary it enters into the very essence of civil liberty that restraint should be placed on the con duct of because no such state exists where there is no and no protection and every being in its essential nature a is therefore a measure of If then restraint in any degree be allowed to be compatible with the question is as to the the only point of argu ment which remains to be how far re straiat ought to The rule in this case as to liberty of every that the restraint ought to go no further than is required by the public in many we is a difficult thing to
