REPORTS.----'' Til longer I live, the more I feel the importance of adhering to the rules which I have laid down for.myself, in relation to such matters: 1st, To hear as little as possible of what is to the produdtce of others, 2d, To believe nothing of the kind till I am absolutely forced to it. 3d, Never to drink in the spirit of one who circulates an ill report. 4th. Always to moderate as far as I can, the u kindness which is expressed towards others. 6th. Always lo believe that, if the oilier side weia heard, a very different account woulil be given of the matter, I consider love as wealth, and as I would resist a man who should come to rob my house, '0 would I a man who would weakeirmy regard jbr any human being. I consider too, thMfpersoiis are cast into different'moulds; and 'that to ask myself, what should I'doiii that person's situation, is not a-just mode of-ju'dging.
