WILLIAM HARVEY, of AmerJBam, in the county of Bucks, intiholder, and deputy poftmafter of that place, ftands charged upon-oath, on a violent fufpicion of having felo-nioujly ftolenoutof the Pa ft Office th'ere, feveral bank notes andbilh contained in letters Jcnt by the F.oft.

The mufic, -rfit, poetry, and converfafion of the aRtients were applied to'aggrandize religion, and make it appear in the utmoft fplendor; their point of ambitirrn was the gljqry of making acquifitioiis to the public, and they defpifed the dillinftion of table and equipage, as much as we admire them. Hence a notfle finSpIicity of manners reigned among all orders, ard excluded luxury with it's attendants, fraud and rapine; great in the council and in the field, they grew illuflrious, not rich; and contented to think and adl above the.vulg;.r, they lived and died like them-Difinterefted ambition wai catching among a people thus devoted to their country,; and the f trophy of one hero would not Jet another fleep till he raifeda fecond, while modern, policy meanly barters and llockjobs for fafv-ty, and the treafure is'exhaulkd to bribe her memberi. not to do her a mi/chief. , It was the judgment of antiquity that national fecurity could not fublift without natiohaT virtue, and thit general loofenefs and pro-phanenefs were the feeds of- ruin to a ftate: nx conftqaence of this judgment, the opinions and lives of the populace were a principal concern, and they were not fuffered to be corrupted in jeft or in earned. " . A vicious fentiment in a theatrical performance at Athens, would have .coft the poet his liberty or life : when Euripides made one of his a&ors fay,-" Riches are the fupreme good, and with reafon excite the admiration of the gods and men," the whole theatre rofe upon him, and he had been immediately ba-nifhed if he had not defired patience till the end of the piece, where the fpeaker ;of this , fentence perifties miferably. But impiety and loofenefs are permitted to tread ourftage, and are encouraged by acclamations to debauch the people : our tafte for what is fine, is gone, together with our relifh for what is good. If our gentry will countenance diverfions of a dangerous tendency, if the converfation of their tables, and the entertainments of their theatres (hall confpire to infufe into their, do-meftks (who will always be copies of their -fupefiors,' and fine gentlemen at fecond hand) a fpirit of. irreligion, licentioufnefs, and mif-rule, 1 fhall not wonder if in time they , thaage fjtations with their party-colour d atter-. dants, and there or four fellows from behiud the coach, cut the owner's throat, and.fiep into it themfelves: I am fure I was in paia. for the future fafety of a gentleman whofe fer--vant followed in the ftreet, when I heard'hira . fay to his comrade with an ain **oy,-" Jack,, what do you think my mafter fays ? why that there is �to fuch place as, hey,'^ I know not how it is, but every thing feems !to confpire to remove the. horror from evil^ ;
